It is this kind like the idea behind it video the intro video of what Ball Beagle is all about checking out time Logan Sekulow right now. Your kids are stuck at home trying to learn online. The ACLJ is here to help.
We believe in great and sometimes complicated history of our nation is too important to let anyone overlook because of a pandemic, and certainly not because of someone's political agenda there people out there right now.
Political leaders call to abolish history classes they want to erase American history from classrooms and textbooks and that's why now more than ever we need to be honest and educate our kids on who founded this country government works and what they can do to protect creating aging entertainment content for kids is one of my passions.
I've been blessed to work biggest players in the industry including Disney and Nickelodeon.
There's a glaring hole in space, a channel that shares the same principles that you want to instill in our next generation. That's why we came up with this exciting project will offer fun educational video content you can share with your children and grandchildren.
It's a brand-new channel from your friends at the ACLJ we call it the night it was fun to say.
And yes, our logo is 1/2 bald Eagle half Beagle even more fun to watch Ball Beagle have your children's interest at heart with great content times will feel over-the-top and ridiculous is actually very serious business.
Ball Beagle initial launch will be on YouTube. We believe our content needs to be available to kids where they are your kids or anything like mine that you have a unique opportunity to be part of this revolutionary as you can see where busy here in the studio goal of all beagles produce high quality educational content from a source you know and trust the ACLJ created to be used as a supplement to what your kids schools are offering for homeschooling horses to save entertainment space. Were you as a parent can relax the quality of Ball Beagle content will compete with the top players cable TV streaming services and other YouTube content being produced by to do that we have to be constantly creating and releasing exciting new videos on the Ball Beagle channel and the truth is that the production schedule requires resource your generous support makes it possible to teach and inspire your kids and grandkids for years to come.
All will fill your home with smiles, singing, and laughter for you to really ask for George Washington with kids future guardians of the liberties of this country right in with the ACLJ involving a believe we must provide an option now Teresa future guard.
I like the sound you believe in this mission. Kids and grandkids benefit from an educational entertainment platform that monitors the same core values you do select Ball Beagle is Ball Beagle.com and you know Marty stealing a lot of positive comments in Chad state from the grandchildren can't wait for the New Year's at their home school. I know 31 years of my kids are to deftly want to use it, but that the purpose of this right now is we want to make sure we got the kind of the the resources to start producing these absolute and so that's what were doing. By launching the email@example.com it's to donate their it's an ACLJ page seeing the same donations like you are to ACLJ it's just so that we know that your donating specifically for the production of these these products is videos historical videos and and to help you base your walk kids through like absolutely be really engaging and really fun. By the end of the day it's can be a very important fact driven information so there really is an come out there to make yellow biographies on the founding fathers. There can be fun songs there only wrapped in a way that kids want to watch it regardless of the educational content and that's how you get them not only not look at the current place.
I came from. I gave working children's entertainment.
I at least have a good idea of what that is. We all have kids. What's good here in our production staff. I think there's probably 100 kids there to be on the focus group. We are working on creating content that not only is going to help replace content or replace the content. The schools may not be teaching right now.
It may also be an option just to help supplement and to even make that even easier and more fun way to member not just US history. They'll be the primary focus, US history, but also the faith of the founding fathers in some of the other elements the battalion and again, all for free as long as we get support on backend to create the stock is as you saw two small clips we have submitted its big production.
I we want to make sure that the quality matches up to what I kids have of that other options on the mainstream adult. I think the quality already. What were saying is a quality that you'd see on PBS on Nickelodeon on on Disney minutes that kind of quality. Now here's why it's important number and talk to the parents and grandparents here and that is this look there is a concerted effort and it's real to not only rewrite history, but maybe not even teach history American public schools. On top of that is you know Jordan Logan initiated that help for students. I think it was was in 1850 families yes method number down this document every Saturday we had. I spoke to Skip as one of our senior attorneys yesterday seizing state stories are heartbreaking of kids that are not getting these with so what were trying to do with our resources is advocate for your kids by teaching them the real story of American history in a way that they can relate now Logan set up a special page team did bald Beagle BEA GLA.com it's up there on the screen. I would encourage you to donate right now to that page because we will attract that and know that we can go into production to start producing this I meant to say Gaelic distillery. I need to be able to scale from you know from making videos like this probably is the making full-fledged VOC people saying there subscribed to the YouTube channel that is incredible.
We really appreciate it. You may see that from a video please share that would also post on Facebook you talk about it tonight.
Please describe the YouTube channel that helps kids the are your eyeball seeing more kids seeing it because as more people subscribe, the more it gets served to have noticed that just with my own personal tail when he had certain milestones that could serve the police report that way, but also support the work of the ACLJ through Ball Beagle against Ball Beagle.com right now it is like a center project. The ACLJ field all the verbiage at the bottom you're just giving a donation to the ACLJ but what this does is help a site visitor who's coming specifically from your also create a new email list of people who maybe want to be notified when there's new bald Beagle happening right you may not exactly mapping studio specifically brought it so if you're looking for how to be state update. I will redo a ball Beagle. That's ball Beagle.com and come back with a Taser causing comments as well about this. 100-684-3110 in the former acting director of national intelligence, former US ambassador to Germany written for now will be joining us live in the second half hour. The broadcast to discuss the media registered coverage of these major historical only one.
A society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice is, is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life. We created three powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn is called mission will show you how you are personally sealed. McCarran means to serve the many ways your membership. How right/the American Center for Law and were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad. Whether it's defending religious freedom.

Now there's an opportunity for you to help in any way comes $20, $50 gift becomes 100 constitutional and religious freedoms are most important to you and your family.
You forgive today Jay Sekulow like this Jordan secular.
We are to your phone calls to 100 684 31 to rejoin second half hour by a special advisor to the ACLJ Rick were now talking about the media and their lack of coverage. These major historical events like what happened with with with Kosovo and Serbia is a recognition of Israel in Serbia moving the embassy to Jerusalem, and Kosovo. Even opening it embassy in a majority Muslim country in Drew and Israel in the for the first time, recognizing Bosnia and other majority Muslim country, recognizing Israel get the media won't coverage cover these major diplomatic victories by the Trump administration and Rick Cornell really lectured to mediate on this. It front from the White House briefing room to replace some of that when he joins us live in the next half hour, the broadcast, but right now are talking about this new initiative. Logan is called bald Beagle right and and I know that a lot of people are checking out the YouTube page. Right now the same subissues. This is what happens when a lot of people start going to a dry dialogue.
People are going to argue to generally appreciate subscribe, you will notice that promo video that separate out some you may just begin that we just published that we could publish answer on their systems may still be populating.
However, new content will be coming within the next few weeks as we start to really create new stuff people asking about specific content really cover this part history about the good one about the battery and focus on that. I say this is a this is age-appropriate age for his age group are you kind of. I would say the primary focus of this is elementary school students for ball Beagle's initial lot. We have plans long-term plans to go well beyond that the initial launch is to even some maybe even some go in the preschool blessing.
The majority of it is elementary school. I know it's if there's puppets think about leisure. Get audio, seven, 8 to 10 probably topping out but the college itself will be so funny and ridiculous and over-the-top. We think kids will love it. We think adults will love it and mainly we just feel like it's really needed right now that he they the history books and things your kids are reading even that just wants to hear. There are the exceptions where people are legit saying we need to abolish history classes but really take a good look at what your kids are learning and see if it really lines up with the core values you have.
Also, you are asking about you, but without the negatives that come from American history.
We are going to up age appropriately touch on all topics not just going to write glance over think now in my Gordon to go into deep dark things that happened for a seven-year-old, probably not be that we will address it as appropriate for age-appropriate content while a ball Beagle.com here's the thing that I want to say and I was and I was asking about this to me were working on watching in DC. These attempts to remove memorials and monuments you know where that whole thing.
This backed off on that somewhat, but the idea you got young kids and me. To me, I look at this I saying in the early grades is when you gotta start teaching American history and you got people in major cities calling for the abolishment of history classes here in Washington where they're trying to rewrite the history Bible either contextualizing or removing monuments. We get to teach history and you got a teacher from a source that you trust like one of the things that on the most proud of in this effort, and our efforts on school choice is just how tangible it is weed. We told her members from the very beginning jaded. We are gonna try to provide real solutions to real students for a very specific year me. He has talked about how many students are going are at home for school for the first time I kids are actually online for the first time this year. RJ has so many are. This is an opportunity yet again for us to provide resources and tools for parents to take control of their own education and an on-site setting is right in line with where we've been for a decade. We want to take the power out of Washington DC. We want to turn it over to parents and then Jake we don't abandon them. We want to give them resources by which they can teach real history lessons and I think that's what this does, absolutely. If the government in your local school district will handle this will step in and fill the gap where we can if we can do with content or do we constantly do legislation to every dude with the help helping illegally will do it. There's a winner take all of this work that we do have ACLJ and see where we can always utilize our talent to the best available part we have some of the best creative team you'll ever see, and I think this can really shine through the work of the new ACLJ project bald Beagle limit will you say two things really quickly here.
One is go to the bald Beagle you to pay and subscribe because we want to be able to see this and one pieces up right now which we can surely rank it and for you to understand what's coming up, so go to the bald Beagle is bald Beagle.com you to page subscribe.

Renée said, I've supported bald Beagle for my grandchildren so she's Artie made that donation. I appreciate you doing this for our children and Janice on Facebook as we all know she said she would be shocked what public schools in my area are teaching." History class either afraid to teach history right now how do you even teach history through depending where you are in the country that it was very different and in history books but now that there teachers are afraid at how I teach. This is going teach George Ross is a good person or the slavery issue, all those issues are coming to contact first shift have a basis of US history. If you have no basis to he can get into the tough parts. You can get into the darker parts, the rustic, there has to be a basis of learning it so that you can then add on to that basis that that that the cons the negatives that the kind of nuance is to history that none of these people are perfect.
Of course, but that you got at if you have a basis then you got nothing right were adding a legacy rent talk about the faith side of the law. These people face in general and in some of those practical things are going to the way government works, not just the founding fathers.
These people as our government works how bills pass some of the classic stuff that everyone needs to know the three branches of government. Working all this great content but were also looking at a drug from a different point of view, because we tried also humanized in some ways these legends that you think of anything that will also help in softening the blow of these people were not necessarily enough on fallible people and find human connection points in of this. There's one or talking about. Specifically, I will spoil about why not. What about George Washington there's like a fun fact that George Washington was a beloved dance.
He loved to dance you look at it. Now Vernon is holding a George Washington love to dance will that's right your kids love to do dance and connect that and tell you the real history. The story behind it below or giving kids painful things to make these people human beings and show that they had good and bad but also that they were that they were humans they were. These are just fictional characters is a further further we get away from it, the more the myths would make sure that they stand up and we have this great content you can share with your kids anything your kids are listening also met a lot of homeschoolers listen other stuff is coming for you.

The ACLJ is working on right now in the broadcast this week are gonna focus on some of things we do with the ACLJ and sometimes you might rarely hear about, especially this last year we have impeachment and we had to let an election, and of course that election is kind of still going on is as we speak right now it's in. This is sometimes you don't get the same focus we brought in a lot of new new audience to because of our work on the size separately from the ACLJ or Pres. Trump as his attorneys. There's a lot of people who are still learning about what the ACLJ really is all about from taking on early on the deep state from the days of the Obama administration and of course fighting back onto the Trump administration and preparing if necessary to fight back against the deep state under a Biden administration we launch a brand-new program for children. You know, that is, and it's great to get really catlike. Pre-k is on my daughter's account pre-k eight she loves it all the way up to about like 10 years old or so educating them. It's called bald Eagle you're gonna learn about that in these broadcast during the holiday and all of we also got a lot of updates on protecting the unborn that we have not gotten to recently on the broadcaster, there's a lot you can see it ACLJ.org about all the work were doing all the time at the American Center for Law and Justice. We want to highlight some of the issues that we maybe didn't get to spend enough time on during this election year. During this time we had so much controversy. Postelection, so let me encourage you. I really want you to to listen to the shows watch these shows share these shows with your friends and family so that they learn about the ACLJ know this a critical time for us. The Americans are for Law and Justice because it's the it's the end of our matching challenge month of November that ends November 30 and what a matching challenge month is why it's so important for the ACLJ is that we have a group of donors and a matching challenge month that then agreed before the month begins to match every individual donation that comes through the ACLJ.org so if you make a donation right now it ACLJ.org and you do it because you love the broadcast or you do it because you love the pro-life legal work we do with the government affairs work we do on Capitol Hill or the international work or you just love all of it and in the constitutional protections protecting your constitutional rights that we do with the ACLJ in the courts around the country and of course protecting freedom around the world in defending freedom around the world. If if you support towards the ACLJ disagree times even thinking about if you're able to to make a financial contribution to the ACLJ why is that what say to just, you know, we are able to donate $10 right now to the ACLJ that's what you donated ACLJ.org that's all you're charged on your credit card because you did it during a matching challenge month is effectively doubled set $10 is like $20. First, the ACLJ $25 is like 5050 is like 100 hundred is like 200 you can do the math you can you understand but it's a great time for us because if you donate were prepared not just for the battles were fighting right now for the battles were prepared to fight in 2021, and we are doing that as we speak right now at the American surfline Justice to let me encourage you donate now it ACLJ.org be part of our matching challenge facing the American Center for Law and engage in critical issues at home and abroad. Whether it's defending religious freedom.

Now there's an opportunity for you to help in any way comes $20, $50 gift becomes 100 constitutional and religious freedoms are most important to you and your family. Beautiful gift today only one. A society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice is, is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life.
We've created three powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn is called mission will show you how you are personally sealed.
Jesus here means to serve the many ways your membership powering the right question for you,/another major pro-life victory out of the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals an en banc panel and this en banc panel 11 member majority judge Priscilla Owen writing the opinion of for that en banc panel's. The four of the dominant by the way for the judges to participate in that en banc panel are Trump nominees.
He nominated six to this court wanted to be recuse one join the court too late, but it just shows you have the courts arch have been changed. Frank Manning is joining us again senior counsel with the ACLJ because Frank I wanted take people through again. What happened in the Sixth Circuit and then what happened in the Fifth Circuit.
These are battles that we have been fighting Frank for a number this one this this case, the Fifth Circuit dates back to the Obama years or 2015. You're making know that the pro-life victories don't come overnight and we were getting very many pro-life victories free case is because it's the right thing to do. We make the arguments we going to court would get shot down.
But with this latest batch of appointments that were saying to the federal courts of the field.
It's a whole new day. Whatever ends up happening at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. for pro-life litigators. It is morning in America, and it looks like it's going to be that way for a long time to remember federal judges have lifetime appointments to run for office every four years or every eight years there.
There are laws they want to flaunt it from there and so this is a whole new day, two days in a row were talking about Court of Appeals pro-life victories. This is unprecedented's explained that this everybody is a list each day. That was in the sixth circuit court of appeals we were asked by the Disick T Center, Tennessee.
We were asked by the Tennessee Atty. Gen. directly from the ACLJ to get involved right a brief amicus brief in that case, tell explained as quickly that victory and will move on to the new victory today right and that the court ruled in favor of the state of C with regard to its ban on abortions for our race, gender and Down syndrome diagnosis again or Court of Appeals decisions out there they go the other way, but this is a new day and and this is a huge victory for the cause of life and to and today we get news out of Texas out of the Fifth Circuit that the state of Texas and Louisiana are allowed to disqualify Planned Parenthood is a Medicaid provider.
There are Courts of Appeals around the country like majority of them go the other way. The Fifth Circuit now joined the Eighth Circuit, which of course accepted the classic circuit split which is the kind of case the Supreme Court take these decisions weren't happening. Four years ago two or three years ago before some of these recent appointments actually got on the bench but we are seeing a whole turnaround in federal courts are going to do with the issue of like any other thing to remember is these cases build on factual records. The ACLJ in its litigation over the years, sometimes even losing litigation has established the case without tech to the Louisiana are based on the CMP videos that center for medical progress.
We represented a board member of the center of medical progress. There were cases filed in Texas against Planned Parenthood for billing practices that we were involved in years ago.
All of these are part of the case that we saw a day out of Texas and Louisiana.
And that's kind of the nature what we do doesn't happen overnight but were now seeing the fruits of our labors. Finally, the Sixth Circuit now to the Sixth Circuit. This is an en banc panel to cases in Texas and Louisiana but also affects Mississippi now there there there opinion on and tell people about that we we we briefly told people about this is a way that states can actively defund Planned Parenthood tell people about this victory because it took going to the en banc panel of the of the Fifth Circuit argued state law 77 en banc means all of the judges of a particular circuit. Normally Courts of Appeals make decisions based on three-judge panel but when there's an issue of exceptional importance that the more members of the court think that they need to weigh in on they could mean the entire court. The en banc court in this case it was. I believe 16 judges will a few years ago before the recent crop appointments. The case law*side law 77 and it and now we have an 11 to 5 victory shows the importance of judicial appointments seemed to be to stand we look at this present trumps nominated and confirmed six new judges to the Fifth Circuit for them are participating yesterday.
I one had to recuse one join too late, but there are more coming as well to the federal bench. I mean this is again it's breathing new life into the battle for life that the ACLJ is been engaged in since our founding helicopter country Jordan I mean first of all, there are three circuit courts that had slipped majority is out right this second. The third and the 11th. There's another court, like the ninth which notoriously is been the most circuit court, the most difficult circuit court for us to litigate in then to 10 of those 29 judges have now been nominated by Pres. Trump Jordan we seen good rulings come out of there because they know the closer that spread is the more likely it is that you're getting it a good draw on it and then you have cases like the Fifth Circuit that Frank just talked about where it's not necessarily been out of flip but but it was a draw on the last time this same case was heard and now it's an overwhelming 11 to 5 when in Jordan that was without one of the Trump nominees even getting to hear the case because of joining it too late and another being recuse suggests dramatic improvement and again you want to talk about continuing to work through the end of the deadline here. There's a lot of other things that were looking at Jordan and this is something that you and I discussed yesterday, there's the ongoing election litigation. There is the potential transition that's moving forward of the Jordan as Frank mentioned, these are judges that would have lifetime appointments on the federal bench. They been nominated by present trumps. They are currently sitting in the United States Senate in the United States Senate has full constitutional authority to consider them and confirm them and no matter how those other things shake out Jordan. They would sit on the federal bench for the rest of their lives or to until they retired. That is absolutely something that is worth fighting for any yields Jordan, the results that you talked about yesterday and they were talking about again today I would say that you know if these cases Frank.
To me it just underscores how you can continue to fight for life and EC victories. Regardless of who's in the White House in January that these states began this battle under the Obama administration a hostile administration to life.
We may have another hostile administration to life. We don't know yet we might know in the buying administration. If we do, though these are these are battles that are waged in court and the courts have been fundamentally changed because of what Pres. Trump is done and and were able to take a much more kind of aggressive approach to these cases across the country because other states will now look at this. States that have had pro-life majorities in their state legislatures, their governors and state you know what these are just gonna be cases we legislation that we pass because we feel like it's the right thing to do and there were rid of have to fight it out in court. Robbie likely lose. Now it's it's hey we can fight this out important and likely went what that is you have any meetings or phone call to capital Lebanon. Over the years with your dad and others at the ACLJ were we talked about where we could bring the case but will lose let's see… Save our ammunition for another court somewhere else. It's a whole new day. We we have a chance in basically every single Federal Circuit.
Now that we didn't have before excited about it. What you just said there is some porn since it seems that every Federal Circuit it's not like the Ninth Circuit is not the Ninth Circuit of 2012 was for that way. Frank exactly but the idea of bringing a case on behalf of life and the Ninth Circuit in past years, which is sort of tilting at windmills when there's nothing wrong with tilting at windmills. It's nice to win once in a while and I think we finally have the chance to do that. It's a good chance when he states can defund Planned Parenthood were looking and by the way there defunding Planned Parenthood because it utilizes videos they saw how Planned Parenthood was miss you using fonts in carrying out abortions the wrong way so that they could sell via body parts, things like that of aborted babies. That's what the states base their defunding on wire they defunding this way I through Medicaid and then got an en banc panel saying you can do that now and you can do that now in Texas and Louisiana and Mississippi. I think it will encourage other states to to pass similar laws.
The be challenged by Planned Parenthood.
But they know they've got a much more friendly. It's not 100%, but a more friendly federal court system. And of course retired by the next segment all the way to the top at the Supreme Court to so Frank just quickly I think this this just it kinda shifts how, in that when were working all these cases, but it shifts how will be approaching even regardless of who the President is how will be approaching these cases in working with state legislatures and governors that are pro-life to get things done a whole new day because it really is going forward.

ACLJ.or even if really wanted that your topic that top the things you like about us is that the Jay Sekulow live radio broadcast and television broadcast, that's a great reason support it because it's on the air because of your financial support of the ACLJ donate email@example.com fan you brought up something interesting away back to Joe's within line with what Wes is talking about two which is that under the Trump administration we have. Fortunately got use to administration with Mike Pompeo and Trop and Pitts and their advisors who are very tough when it comes to religious persecution abroad, especially Americans, imprisoned abroad with these other administrations and with these other people. The Joe by just talking about it is like pulling teeth to get the State Department engaged and certainly you probably won't have Joe Biden tweeting out that he's about to sanction a NATO ally like Turkey to get American home in Jordan. The difference, quite simply, has been Presidential level engagement.
I may look this is another example of an issue where we draw on decades of experience. We worked on our religious freedom issues across the globe, but specifically religious prisoners of conscious of people that are being held as an usually American store in her being held in other places of the world on account of their faith in looking going back through Democrat and Republican administrations.
It has been like pulling teeth to get the bureaucracy and specifically to get the President to raise that to the level of their particular interest in their particular focus and so therefore the wheels of government did not engage as aggressively as they should have on this Jordan that turned on its face during the last four years, Pres. Trump. I think one of the things he did most effectively is say no. As the leader of the United States of America.
When we have one of these issues. I am not gonna put it on the back burner because it might upset the economic applecart know I'm getting engaged and as a result Jordan. There is a long list of resounding success. Were these prisoners were returned home, they were released in their back home now because of that, and I will I will just tell you as we look forward to the next four years.
I would hope no matter who is President that we would very simply look back at the last four years and then juxtapose that with the, the last previous decades, and see that there has been a dramatic improvement in that track record, no matter whose President, Jordan, the model that Pres. Trump put forward. It is just plain and simple. It's the one that the that America should follow going forward it will you let me just say folks to animate you know the West without assuming this is a model again that we've gotten used to. But we know that we need to prepare for the potential of an administration comes in and goes right back to the same old way the Republicans and Democrats in the past it, which was going to go through all these levels, the State Department, all this diplomatic and the present won't say anything about it. If he does will be very will be a written statement that's kind of law and the hope to God that may be, get these people back home.
Yeah yeah you know what what prison Trump is made very, very clear and in he's very candid he's very direct you know people criticize him of not being nice to our allies and provoking your enemies a he's actually done.
Neither of those but he made it very very clear Jordan that with people like Turkey who held you know Americans in Iran and other places. It is in your best interest to support the United States as we try to look at our national security and personal interest as well. The same is true with our NATO allies. Yet it was very clear. We will support you. We have this common defense treaty, but it is in your best interest to help the United States with our national security and other interest as well. That message has been so consistent and so clear and it's that message in that policy that really hangs in the balance right now you know Donna is on YouTube – his super chatter should she donated to and I want to thank her for that and and she said just thank you for all you do with a seal team.
Thank you Donna as well. You know I name. We haven't talked about yet to resurfacing from the Obama years in some way to deal with a lot on this Iran issue in John Kerry is looking to make a comeback stand as this time climate czar that this goes back again to those Georgia Senate races and agree new Deal degree new deal could go right through Congress. If Chuck Schumer becomes a Majority Leader Stan of the U.S. Senate. I don't have to be exactly everything people like AOC would want because there are some modern Democrats there that they that they have to get through and they'll be Republicans as well and then there is a fit legislative filibuster will see if they get try to get rid of that or want to get rid of that but that is why those two Georgia Senate races are so important because John carries gonna be now in part of this group as well. If Biden gets there, and now his company is climate czar. Yet nothing good can come out of this Jordan Ewing over John Kerry is on this issue. Look whether it's green new deal agree new Deal light which would be bad enough. One thing we do know that he would do is is advised that the incoming President rejoin the Paris climate court. I mean Jordan if if that's not bad enough, you know you have to get all the way to green new deal to know what John Kerry would say I think it's yet another example in this foreign affairs space where the this group of people. The names were hearing coming out would use that sort of maximum latitude that our President has in the foreign affairs space not having to go through Senate to do an awful lot of damage, not Jordan, as you related to Georgia it if Democrats pick up those two seats and VP Biden transitions into the White House in the pie Paris climate accord is the least of your concerns when it comes to this issue right at me.
That's what that's why were talking about this folks.
We've got to be realistic for you to be a good warrior for for the causes you care about is if it's just for conservatism for the kind of policies at present, Trump put forward by the populism that America first kind of ideas.
You gotta be a good warrior and that means you get a sometimes at the battle back against bad policies and bad Presidents and you won't have all the tools your disposal possible you could have a Republican majority in the U.S. Senate that can again make the Paris climate accord has the worst of where they could go instead of as they had just said in a West week that could be the least yours.
If you agree new deal and economically.
That could be disastrous for America take very, very seriously.
The hair stood up on my neck when I heard it when Chuck Schumer says.
First we take Georgia and then we change America Shay.
I'm not sure marijuana change America the way Chuck Schumer does know I don't think you do want that.
But he also we gotta be in this battle right now.
Do not just assume that these are that it turned out the way you want them to lessen how the world works best with the Bible teaches either when it comes to worldly affairs instead of turned out the way you want a pair for battle.
