Breaking news Presidents from relief package passed by Congress threatened to veto it once more relieve economic relief for the American people and American families talk about that and more today on Jay Sekulow lot Washington DC phone lines are open for your questions right now: 1-800-684-3110 one 800-6841 10 and now your holes secular yesterday about the stimulus again.

I mean, I think you make an argument that anything that is divided Congress right now which Nancy Posey refused to get anything. That, of course, before the election, and I think that Mitch McConnell's right to point that out yesterday, and I understand the Republicans and Democrats voted for this.

Even if they wanted more money to American families American individuals under those thresholds is I agree think that Americans deserve more, not less.

They got the first stimulus when they're telling us that the the pandemic and the covert is good be raging these next few months, even while the vaccines are being distributed so that there's got to be more shutdowns for safety reasons potential. More job losses remember a lot of these these stimulus payments are so that the economy continues to function so that people's are still spending money and also the PPP loans, which I think you're right okay with how those were set up so that small businesses keep employees on the payroll.

So to get the loan you to keep your employees on the payroll. But we've seen bipartisan opposition to the stimulus bill early on and you one of those members of Congress will be joining us later at Tulsa Gabbert Congresswoman Democrat from Hawaii just believes that this is a slap in the face. The American people because it doesn't provide enough money will so does Pres. Trump.

Let's hear from the President right now throughout the summer. Democrats cruelly blocked covert relief legislation in an effort to advance their extreme left-wing agenda and influence the election. Then, a few months ago, Congress started negotiations on a new package to get urgently needed help to the American people. It's taken forever. However, the bill they are now planning to send back to my desk is much different than anticipated.

It really is a disgrace. They got in the present. Dad willing to potentially veto this and talk with them. Been earlier. You can use my pocket.

He did not plan right now because the timing is not usual because there's also the funding of the government that unfortunately I think what happened here so it is combined. The government funding and all this money that goes to foreign countries and things that we would usually probably do. They combined into one piece of legislation was all focused on covert relief. The Americans and American businesses which should be the number one priority. Whether your American first mag present supporter or a Democrat Nancy Pelosi fan has said she's willing to go to the house floor and do a voice vote on this and thinks they could get it up to 2000 quickly that could the Senate have we heard anything about the Senate because there were also sinners like Marsha Blackburn, Rand Paul, Ron Johnson and others that Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, who thought this just was not enough for the American people and too much for the foot for foot for foreign governments and also just programs in the US government that that art should be the priority right now you have a problem with that approach Jordan a speaker policy put forward as it doesn't address the second half of what Pres. Trump said, which is the hundreds of billions of dollars that are going overseas or to wasteful programs instead of to the American people what the President rightly asked for was for Congress to prioritize their spending, rather than send those hundreds of billions overseas spend them to the people who are suffering right now during this pandemic. In turn, just quickly.

I'd say this not a people, said the President was conflating these two things know he wasn't.

It was the Congress who did what Congress does combined all of this into one bill took two votes in the Senate. Senate over there in the house, Senate over the Senate as one package.

Jordan. They are the ones that are sending one bill, $2.3 trillion to the President's desk. He can't do anything about the shenanigans that they pull you agree with the President jigger with Congress so woman Tulsa Gabbert is bipartisan opposition to this give us a call 1-800-684-3110. Remember, that's a critical month the support percolate together as one a matching challenge month for the last days of that matching challenge. I would encourage you to go to Any amount you donate getting a matching gift course of 10 $10 2020 4040 is 8860 ACLJ.normal American Center for Law and Justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad.

Whether it's defending religious freedom. Protecting those who are persecuted for their faith.

Uncovering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy and fighting to protect life in the courts and in Congress ACLJ would not be able to do any of this without your support for that. We are grateful. Now there's an opportunity for you to help me way for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ's matching challenge for every dollar you donate $10 gift becomes 20 $50 gift becomes 100. This is a critical time for the ACLJ the work we do. Simply would not occur without your generous take part in our matching challenge make a difference in the protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms most important to you and your family.

You forgive today online ACLJ 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 a free powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn, called mission will show you how you are personally publication includes a look at all major ACLJ were fighting for the rights of pro-life activists ramifications. 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the abortion industry and what Obama care means to the pro-life in many ways your membership in the ACLJ is empowering the right question for copy mission in life today online ACLJ/Jay Sekulow. We should have a lot of calls coming in I get some is ready to go take your calls, your questions whether you are watching on Facebook on YouTube on periscope.

Of course most of you are listening on radio rumble. Yet later in the day that would get up on rumble but also we can we always thank all of our radio listeners. All the radio stations the thousands. The carrier broadcast every single day. That's where the majority of you are a listings.

This of course Sirius XM as well. There is a lot of opposition.

We want to take your comments if you can put in comments online or questions. I think there's a lot of set opposition.

It supports what the President said, which is get me something better for the American people.

Note $2400 for family force that nothing but this didn't happen three months ago like it should've actually been the next in this round probably.

Instead, we waited because of politics.

That's clear they want anything done before the election. Okay were passed that now, why, why not get more money into the hands of the American people so that they continue to spend the money at small businesses in the small businesses can get the PPP loans and key people on their payrolls and that I'll tell you from conservative friends of mine are they great. These are not big government spenders they don't like bailing out people they don't like stimulus bills, but they agree that if it were right that were heading into more of a lockdown type scenario and yes there's lots of exceptions but not a lot.

For small businesses, others not so gathering spot big box stores get accepted out and grocery store chains and things like that.

But even with the vaccine that they know to keep their people on staff which they want to do right into the new year they need these loans of all sent me for last 34 months for successful small businesses, but they were worried about keeping that some of the staff on the payroll. With these loans, they do so that part is okay.

It's what we can get the money and so they're looking it at what were looking at is $2000 per individual. If you me if you're under those thresholds of 150 or 75,000 for individuals and then gets additional 2000 per family member that it's the dependency could be looking instead of $2400 for family, for that is a right to say that you be looking at $8000 for family for if it went out for both adults and children yet depend on if and when to children as well. Yeah, here's the thing, I mean the question with this is likely there's no question. People need it. I mean, here's the real question. Can we do better than what's been put forward in the answer to that is pretty simple answer to. Can we do better is yes we can do better than the question is doing the time to do better. Well the truth is we do have the time to develop a constitution sets forth of the present has the authority to veto, he can veto it and then they're not can be the most that override a veto.

Thus, I think this is what the big key is for. Can we get a better bill put forward and it sounds like to me Harry is from a law and economics that legally we know it can be done from an economic standpoint, more direct aid to the American families that are in one's really hurting through this and especially as we come to what our nation top months at a movie got in a this month already almost over but January February could be really tough absolutely so more direct aid to businesses, particularly small businesses and individuals is essential.

It's a crucial aspect aspect of any coronavirus relief bill. Instead, Congress has focused more and more of its attention on peripheral issues, including $85.5 million to Cambodia, a $40 million to the Kennedy Center now Congress faces the prospect of working through Christmas.

Why simply because Nancy Pelosi refused to work to help the American people during the summer there is insufficient relief for small businesses including restaurants in the bill and if Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats have to work during Christmas. There is poetic justice in all of that. Yes I mean I think that the United which were quite wary what you said that was KU med's decision require that the working right after the break break. I mean they have to let's go to family what how would this actually come down if it were actually get agreement here. Will this Congress goes until noon on January 3. So really they have until then to accomplish and there are couple of hurdles in the way J1 government funding runs out on Monday to unemployment insurance runs out on Saturday but look at where there's a will there's a way Congress could pass you know it. A one-week extension hypothetically the President can veto this measure and send it back to the Congress J, I mean just just parliamentary. They can't amend this exact bill but basically they can take this exact tax and they can do what Harry just suggested they could say look in a time of crisis, low-budget priorities, like hundreds of millions of dollars to Cambodia and Burma. Those are going to come out working to shift those funds to direct payments to the American people to small business payments into unemployment insurance today, you would probably have a stopgap measure in there and then the new bill would have to pass both the house and the Senate and go back to the President elect to it that the President no doubt, I mean the Congress has put him in a situation where he got a difficult choice to make this he sign this and go back to Congress and asked for more assistance or work with Speaker Pelosi or does he veto it and make Congress go back to work. J there's there's just no nothing, saying that Congress has to go home for Christmas if they need to stay here and get this right they can work all the way up to the end until January 3. And then, oh by the way, nothing saying the new Congress can't come back to this as well that we got Doug: delightful lines or jams, let's go ahead.

I think we don't normally do this but I think we did this we did.

The person was the people of questions we can help and sales go to Jane and Hawaii online one, he J motor Jay Sekulow live everybody and thank you for having me on. I'm calling from the island of Hawaii and I just want to make a point. First of all, that will think Albert is right on anything that any kind of stimuli there that I like what they put forward is just so bogus at the big insult to everybody in America and I think that good point is well taken, America's waking up what exactly is our Congress and Senate doing for the people in America are going down were going under prioritizing the bill are actually veto it out and make them go back to work and start over and think of the people. That's what I mean that's what he saying you a bite from those gathered by the way, is to be joining us in the last thing the broadcast and second half hour so you want. Stay tuned for that be great to have her on. Let's go and play that by from come from And what that in most cases won't even cover 25% of your rent.

It is an insult and a slap in the face to every single American in this country who is struggling because of this this coded pandemic who is concerned about not being able to pay the rent about eviction about whether you have enough to buy groceries or medicine for yourself and your loved ones. So this is. I mean I think she hits the it's the mark of exactly what it is very goes back to what you said and that is this is mostly relief or the market. The idea here I why I say this before is to get this money and used your spending and that gets it into the economy so you're getting a belief in the sense that you now can buy things you need to be whether Spain for Christmas bills or whatever it might be and that's get money into the economy, which keeps people working so there's a whole economic impact on this whole approach. So the more we can ride direct aid to the American people, the better it's going to be for the economy. I think that's precisely correct and that is an alternative perspective rather than providing direct aid to lobbyists and so if you look at the bill.

It is bloated. It combines two bills and omnibus bill plus a coalbed relief bill and in reality there is little coronavirus relief and a lot of money for lobbyists, pet projects, there is no reason why we should be sending additional funds to Cambodia and Burma. While the American people are suffering and their suffering disproportionately in blue states. Restaurants are closing and churches are facing problems because governors refuse to read open or allowed churches to open just like Home Depot or Lowe's. So many institutions need direct aid they need it now. The lobbyists can wait. I think that well the questions get to be what actually happens here annuity weaving happens here why I think listeners will there's pressure now is kind to pressure points you have the present United States you have Democrats on board with this, and Republicans on board with this. The question is, is the time there to get this done I were still waiting to hear from Majority Leader McConnell who is been very frustrated by dealing with Nancy Pelosi on this.

Rightfully so. And to figure out if he believes he's got the time to do this before the government runs out sober and continue take your calls. Comments on Facebook as well. You Lisa on YouTube Road and I'm guessing Congress as they throw us pennies will shut up and go away and I think that was a part of this year and out the other part of this was there running at a time because the what Nancy Pelosi did blocking all of this until after the election. Is there another, you two from Susan so much going to foreign places and other unnecessary items like Smithsonian things like that that money should be going to American small businesses. The American family notes that of the Kennedy Center which I appreciate you getting at small business as it is music and incinerate its buildings are not open right now so again support the work If you see leading right.

Christmas Eve we are working hard to get past you.

The American people donate be part of our matching challenge. Only when a society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice is, is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life. We created a free powerful 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 Planned Parenthood's role in the street. What Obama care means to as many ways your membership is powering the right question mission in life today online/the American Center for Law and Justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad.

Whether it's defending religious freedom. Protecting those covering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy fighting to protect life reports and in Congress. ACLJ would not be able to do any of this without your support for that. We are grateful. Now there's an opportunity for you to help me way for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ's matching challenge for every dollar you donate $10 gift becomes 20 $50 gift becomes 100.

This is time for the ACLJ.

The work we simply would not occur without your generous take part in our matching challenge. Make protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms most important to you today online okay will be getting these it would take a little break here from the talk about the stimulus we get back to that in a moment and asked the text of the print bars the other day that's in the come on then we'll enforcement of this program many times you know him from her cohost are hosted by QVC.

Also one of the founders of the great ministry called fearless faith to be information about that the end of the interview I wanted to come on and you know there's a lot of consternation right now a lot of people are tense, both politically and just this time a year and over the course on top of all of this and I want to offer some hope. People that you know we we serve a great God and we gotten control of the universe that includes the affairs of the United States and that we just gotta keep a focus but I wanted to share a little bit about that. That's lasting to come on political and social unrest, chaos and violence in our world very similar to the world that Christ was born into 2000 years ago, but he came to bring light into the world and I thought it was fascinating that Monday of this week. December 21, the winter solstice. The longest darkest night of the year that this Christmas star appeared Saturn and Jupiter. The two largest planets in our solar system came so close that look like one giant bright brilliant star in the sky and I think that's a sign from God.

It's very similar to the star that the wisemen followed but you know the wise men when they found Jesus before they went on their trip. Herod called the minutes of look. When you find the Christ child. Let me know.

I want to come and worship him and Herod didn't want to worship him. Herod was lying with a lot of lies lately and we see all the craziness in our world and the wisemen didn't return to Herod, and he was so upset when he found out that they didn't come back that he had all the children under two in Bethlehem and the coast killed, so it was a dark world. But Jesus was the light just like the star of the light pierces darkness, and even more amazing J then the Christmas star is the fact that Isaiah 700 years before Christ came to the world. He predicted his birth in Isaiah chapter 9 verse two, he said the people that walked in darkness saw great light and then for versus down and in verse six he says unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given, and the government shall be on his shoulders. That's interesting matter who is running our government. Jesus is our King's name will be called wonderful Counselor, the mighty God, Prince of peace. So it's really interesting that when Christ's birth was announced, it was announced to the shepherds, the humble, the lowly yell of of this society and its of the glory of the role Lord shone round about them, but then the angel said fear not for I bring you great tidings good tidings of great joy which shall be to all people. So Christ's message is for all of us. And at this Christmas time. J there is so much hope that's what I say to you, and I know people are just now. It's so discouraging with the election results in, and that now there's another election in Georgia.

We got all this going on and you know how do you deal with all of this and yeah put it in perspective, I mean input into real perspective. We had a situation here in our own office with one of our senior people going and we have people to pray for them and and that the surgery went well, but he faced a major health challenge on Monday. I mean the younger guy Jordan's agent Braden Franson setting eighth grade had major surgery on the came up suddenly and that puts everything in perspective. I hope for everybody else, including people that we work with. That's what you know so pray for him and his family and try to help them out that family during this time is what it's about and by nature. People want to try to do that, but I got the.

The angst level, and Lord knows I've lived from last four years is really tense and people are at heightened level just based on text from, but people ever note for many years. All of a sudden you know it's as if the you know the whole republics in the ball and all republics not going to fall okay you like the policies you fight those policies. But God is in control of this.

This is not some surprise and while I think there was a lot of you know issues that developed during this election season. The fact is, it is what it is and I just want people to be going to the holiday here to have that joy that hope and you got a great ministry called fearless faith and this is kind of that moment.

I think for a lot of people tells about that while I formed it with two of my best friends Brian Rowland and Terry Steen, Brian fact is good friends with Ray Baca who works for you. I got to read before the show and these guys have known for 40 some years after my wife passed. I took him out to lunch. I said, guys. God's dealing on my heart. I feel like he's leading me into something new. You know, away from QVC and so I went into full-time ministry and reform fearless faith today were on Facebook at FFM 60 were on Instagram. Terry's wife Karen is a great job of that, all under fearless faith, we have a logo with three flames, just like I talked about the light of the world we want to spread the Christ life to everyone, and the big news for SJ is in early January were launching a podcast called finish strong with fearless faith in it.

You can find it on Apple's bona fide I heart wherever podcasts are super excited about that spreading like Christ through us and when we let him shine. He pierces the darkness the darkness cannot contain the space is Ulysses a great ministry to support its it's F and on Facebook.

It's FFM 60ministries 60 so FFM 60 so I would tell you that the this is a ministry worthy of your support and we encourage you to do that then last Lord to bring out a time here, but I I want again and with this and that is going into the season dealing with pandemic. I guess it would deal with political upheaval would deal with a lot of tension economic impact talk about that on the progress and coming back up and accept our talk about it more. The stimulus package.

But the hope of hope is found in Jesus Christ absolutely and Matthew 123. It said the virgin shall be with child, and she shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, God with us, the creator of the universe is with us.

If you're feeling isolated due to the pandemic. God is with you. You are not alone and that is her message. There is great hope.

Christ is the hope of the world and then in Colossians, we read that it says Christ in you the hope of glory.

So let Christ shine hope you'll join us at fearless faith on our Facebook page at FFM 60 and then with a podcast, and update. Thank you. It's so great to be with you and in the seam again. You know when I was with you last time you said we are talking about what I went through with Beth and how God intervened in our lives and you said God intervenes in the affairs of man, it's what he does. I think 2021's gonna be a great year. He's getting ready to do something big. I fully believe that God does interfere intervened with the affairs of mankind and you just have to be able to go with it. Again, the organizations fearless faith ministries you can get great info on their Facebook page break is a post almost every day a new inspirational moment. And that's at that 60 Dan Wheeler thanks for being with is always appreciated and that matters is if you folks I get it's great to remember that as we approach Christmas Eve tomorrow where can you write back to the stimulus talk to Congress of woman Tulsa Gabbard joining us in the final segment of the broadcast live. She would check it out to a Qatar saloon from Hawaii, a Democrat, because she along with that many Republicans just thinks is the slap in the face inherently pays about 1/4 of most Hawaiians rent for a month in a pretty expensive islands. Things cost more, so I get adjusted for the slap and faced everybody in the President agrees that Republicans agree really thought through how do we get to this get them funding to the American people increase which the President wants Democrats want. Many Republicans want as well. I think you want to take your calls.

We come back support the work of ACLJ matching challenge the American Center for Law and just as critical issues at home and abroad for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ matching challenge for every dollar you donate will be managed $10 gift becomes $20, $50 gift becomes 100 you can make a difference in protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms to you and your family. Give a gift today online ACLJ live from Washington DC Jay Sekulow and secular Jay Sekulow like this impact show today for you is the enemy Christmas Eve tomorrow and of course you look different for a lot of people. Just remember that it's it's great to always gather with family. It's great to build a travel but if you can't because a covert are you working or you got a pre-existing condition that makes it more dangerous for your travel River. It's Christmas is is not really about all that is about the birth of our Savior and and so maybe on this holiday when it can be stressful. I know if you give kids getting everything together but when we are little more localized. If you will and at home. I just remember that it then at the end of the day it's about teaching your family about that it's about to about remembering that yourself too but yet it's also about Congress getting the job done and into a lot of people are saying Congress. We talked about the stimulus bill yesterday. Now, now we've heard directly from the President and members of the Republican Party Democrat party. This is just not enough of the American people way too much spending that isn't necessary right now is a type of the Kennedy Center.

You can't go to an event to consider right now most of our large venues America are closed that can be handled later on. You know it's not it's not bad to support that intent to clean it up and to keep it a functioning in our nation's capital. But this is the time to do it because now it's basically just probably a bare minimum stallion you're keeping it clean, keeping some lights on.

That's about it so we need to again move forward and help the American people know what to say so I'm not against helping the Kennedy Center. It's a national treasure and it and it probably needs work. We know it needs work, but work consumption so he needs work to designated today. Now, because the American people needed today and small businesses especially needed today. That's right so I will phone calls. Start taking mortar causing comments right off the bat. I want to go to build Ohio on line 3. Hey Bill, luckily Jay Sekulow live in the article. Merry Christmas Mary Howard is the area radio program that I keep sharing the story about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

It just warms my heart was in a thank you for that. It was a good friend of ours and we known for years and I will tell you this, we felt like in the middle of all of this and I know because tensions are high that we just needed it kinda simmer the tensions that little bit and I think remembering what this is like Georgia said, remembering what this is all about summer suspensions down. It's going to problem three verse five and six of the trust the Lord with all your heart and lean not on on our own understanding.

In all ways acknowledge him and he will direct our path of thank you for that summer, and I think this is the best thing that could happen in the truck right now because the thin client.

I don't think you been real relevant right now because of all the confusion but this is by far the one thing that he's warned us of that on both sides of the most part there's a lot of things that the American people don't trust and and this bill shows that anything got to those that have exposed all the text in this and sent a note to again if it's part of a budget. I get that. But right now is not the time to do that right now there are so many people hurting right now we need.

I'm thankful right now the Lord is protected me and my family.

But there's a lot of people need businesses closing down and and and yet where we would not concede it's transparent and because it's transparent it's time now. I think politics are popular again.

People are now getting involved.

We see what's going on and unfortunately people don't realize how good this was for the President to come out. The President engages the fact the matter is I was glad that the pastor Lipo. I mean, because I type and I was worried for a while that there was nothing past.

I thought it should be more direct date I think is much of the second be directed to the American people. It's better for the country and to fail to prioritize Jane in looking regardless what the President decides. Maybe he'll sign it, maybe her he'll veto it. But there is a huge value in highlighting how Congress goes about this to just just one quick antidote. They literally wield this bill in on a flatbed cart to the House of Representatives. That's how big it was in any give members an opportunity to read it before they voted on it. A lot of the members in fairness to the ones about for you know the stuff was in there when they cast).

I people thought you this is all we can get something to my constituents fault those writing for either because this is been delayed so long it would make the deer I just think that if we got the President and Democrats and some Republicans writing on this.

Let's let's make it happen. Joint final segment with Tulsa Gabbert Congressman from Hawaii Democrat wants to make it happen. To call this a slap in the face will be right back here causing comments on Jay Sekulow, the American Center for injustice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad. Whether it's defending religious freedom. Protecting those covering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy fighting to protect life in the courts and in Congress. ACLJ would not be able to do any of this without your support for that. We are grateful. Now there's an opportunity for you to help me way for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ's matching challenge for every dollar you donate $10 gift becomes 20 $50 gift becomes 100. This is time for the ACLJ. The work we simply would not occur without your generous matching challenge to make protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms you forgive today online okay 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've created a free publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn will show you how you personally. Publication includes all major ACLJ fighting for the rights of pro-life activist ramifications 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the Obama care means to as many ways your membership is powering the right mission in life today online/Jay Sekulow this Jordan to bring this facility that's wonderful. My daughter loves the Smithsonian to DC. I'd love to take you there right now for the holidays you is her team. ACLJ deceived can't not opening and that's unfortunate for a lot of kids and also the older school groups make their trip to Washington DC. So how about we push that funding toward the semi gets new Smithsonian's and updating Smithsonian.

It's important because all all major superpowers have those buildings and that we fund. It's important to find. We don't do it at a time when you're when you're facing a pandemic and people can even utilize those buildings and so it is fun to get us back to the message of what Congressman I Gabbert said the slap in the face watch the American people, and in this, the more more I think about it and you realize it, that this is less money than before and at a time were being told by the scientific experts, regardless of who is in taking the oath on January 20 that this is going to get worse in this searching in different places before gets better until everyone is able enough vaccines are out there with this kind of herd immunity and NCC the and this is not like just conspiracy talk UK shut off in the world right now might be shut off from US very soon. Yes, it's been shut off from Europe. That is what you know. That is something major we were all criticized early on shutting down countries travel to the US. Now you see what France is doing this, you see the trucks lined up at the border when they said no that's the search going on will need help and so it's not Congress's is going to get another chance to get a better I think that's what I think the standard for this should be. Can we do better.

Was going take the classes was told on her after she dropped a call back in Jesus and calling on line 1 Jay Sekulow life and tell him hello, thank you Merry Christmas thank you thank you I want to ask are they using the Celtic bill which would get domestic bell. I would think as an escape path and illegal docket is one of the questions I have. Why was it combined with the government that the funding of the US government stand that was the I think the issue here this cause a lot of trouble. They try to sell well don't point today. That's because we combined two bills but you have to do it that way they can vote on both separately on absolutely should have used it as political cover.

I mean it wasn't illegal, but it's actually even worse than what Susan is saying what they did is they combined the covert stimulus bill with the $1.4 trillion of funding for the next year. Then Jordan in the house with they did as they divided that bill into see that some Democrats could vote against the defense portion and then put the covert package with the rest of the appropriation so everybody can kind of vote against what they wanted to, but both would pass and then what they did. Jordan is date through a parliamentary procedure. They combined those two and sent them over to the Senate as one so look, they're just trying to hide the ball in all sorts of manners and and that's why. To be honest with you when I woke up and some people were saying. Well the President is conflating the budget with the covert stimulus bill know he's not exactly was being sent to his back desk is being sent to his desk.

One bill that has all of that in there is a legal know is in a political game absolutely necessary because III tend to agree that the what they've done here is tactically a bad move. I understand what you got and continuing resolutions got a budget you gotta build up got government operate the merchant can people right now looking for specific looking for specific aid package for the American people. And while the first attempt was something which is better than nothing. You still want to get them something Harry absolutely so close see house Democrats are masters of duplicity and so essentially what they've done is that they've engaged in a massive and quite public sleight-of-hand maneuver and so essentially what they've done is they've used the coronavirus bill to hide aid selective aid to peck pet projects, for example $4 billion to New York's Metro transit system, $15 billion earmarked toward grant programs for live entertainment venues such as Broadway $7 billion toward expanding broadband access money for the Smithsonian money for the Kennedy Center money for Cambodia money for Burma and so what they have not done they have not prioritized the American people and the American people are finally getting a chance to see what is actually in the bill. Keep in mind that the bill contains 5500 pages and so only man has been able to read the entire bill but the rest of us are still working our way through the first few hundred pages and so in some respects this whole process has been a massive monstrosity and the American people are right to be upset right a facility for your phone calls 164 3110 severe watching on YouTube right now.

Let's go right to the phones people that have been home on the going order a Marybeth in Missouri on line 6 Mary Beth, welcome to Jay Sekulow live a Marybeth UM in Maryland Maryland I think you're talking to me. Yet I am so when I called and I told your call screener that I was really really angry with Pelosi and Mitch O'Connell, and I do understand not not exactly McConnell thought he felt responsible for getting the bill passed on. I think they kept like they can pull that will let the American people by, we are not a family attorney that there are many who are hurt and he kept me I can't like it angered me that we are spending money overseas. When there are people that need help here and I think the whole point that the package is combined with next year's budget is even ridiculous. I got the packet to help people and stimulate the economy. You touched on exactly like Congressman Gabbard will be joining us next segment broadcasts and how the present.

Why were all in agreement.

Doesn't matter what side of the aisle you're on. People wanted more to those who need it.

There's two important parts that one is so that those who are decent economic situation would still need the relief spend money which help small businesses and then those who are in really tough situations are able to provide basics. The basics for their family that they need to get the PPP when I think that part of it worked okay because you got a key people on payroll to keep to get the load ultimately forgiven, but then this is obviously it is triggered something on both sides of the aisle and I think it's just an American. It's triggered America. We want to forget it. Spend American money we want to help out hurting Americans and hurting American businesses and Jordan look I think the blame for this lies at the feet of both parties. I really do. I mean, there's no excuse for in a time like this. At the end of the Congress for not taking the bit the package that you just talked about the direct stimulus need the help for small businesses. The unemployment insurance and Jordan moving it on its own and you know what if they moved it on its own. I have no doubt that the President's request for more assistance to the American people would have been in there because individual members of Congress like Congressman Gabbard could have brought her amendment to the floor and I have no doubt that it would have passed, but both parties. Jordan do this they get in a small room with just a handful of leaders and they negotiate a package that nobody else gets to read and then they rush it through at the last minute and they put a bill on the President's desk and his only option is to sign it or veto it.

Jordan or any President, no matter who it is that's a false choice.

You folks if you are from Hawaii and Congressman Gavin Rodden why live right now will be joining us that we love to hear from you at 164 3110 maybe want to talk to the Congress under some as well about her opposition to the current amount of money. So if you're in Hawaii gives call 164 3110. I do want to take one phone call been in Oregon before going to this next break pigeonholed non-you're on the urban well I you with Bill my street and when all that came out over time only run really thought about quitting a job and spent the summer on the river. Have a great time and had plenty of money and went to the station to fill up my car and the short Character that we can hire anybody because we can't pay enough to compensate for the bill. Work there's two parts to unemployment relief which is separate from working families make hundred $50,000 or less. The stimulus check to them unemployment rate that was extended not as much but it was extended so that people were unemployed have money to spend it.

Yes, there's bad actors out there, but eventually been as you said like kind of karma comes around. For those who quit their jobs and thought they could just party on it because you don't ever want to rely on government to pay your bills and the stimulus bill speaks to that really talking to Congresswoman Tulsa Gabbard from Hawaii Democrat who also shares that same position when we come back for final segment of the show support the work of ACLJ's mom thrust, noting online W impact matching challenge 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 the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant, right, we've created a free publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn will show you how you personally. Publication includes a look at all major ACLJ were fighting for the rights of pro-life activists ramifications. 40 years later, when Obama care means many ways your membership is powering the right mission in life today online/the American Center for Law and were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad.

Whether it's defending religious freedom. Protecting those covering corruption in Washington fighting to protect life reports and in Congress. ACLJ would not be able to do any of this or that. We are grateful. Now there's an opportunity for you to help me time you can participate in the ACLJ's matching challenge for every dollar you donate $10 gift becomes 20 $50 gift becomes 100.

This is time for the ACLJ work. We simply would not occur without your generous matching challenge make protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms most important to you today online okay have right now. She covers woman from Hawaii Democrat who shares a lot of our same feelings about the stimulus like the present who says this is just not enough for the American people a Congresswoman Gabbard is joining us now accomplish Jay Sekulow great to have you. Thanks for being with this we appreciated your stand on a lot of issues, this one in particular.

Thanks for calling is I know you you're working today you call this a slap in the face to the American people. We've said this was the initial plan was not enough direct aid was lot of other stuff in there but not enough directly. Let us know your thoughts on this because obviously you're very important member.

I think that much for reaching out and I couldn't agree more. You know, when you look at the hundreds of billions of dollars, and that bill that are going to just about everything, not only in America but in the world except for providing direct relief to American Kenny at the mouth point to how disgraceful this bill really is the point to the really messed up offensive priorities that leaders in Washington have right now the reality is that if those sitting at the negotiating table felt it was a priority to provide direct into the hands of the American people who are struggling the most that we would've had a very different than what we have hundreds of dollars going to special interest Corporation and other countries and and other areas with with literally near crown being left for the American people expecting them to say thank you very much can you break it's ridiculous because you very outspoken on this statement really resonated with us and that is the belief that is been proposing this bill for your constituents in Hawaii would not pay 25% of the rent. We've got a high cost of living stayed in Hawaii but they were not everything that people can from food to energy and other things have to be shipped and limited landmass, the cost of renting an apartment on average it is about $2000 a month maybe for a one-bedroom apartment that when you're looking at that kind of predicament that people in my home state, or anything that really people across the country to say hey here's 600 block a one time payment to help you in the time of great hardship and need absolutely confident, and frankly, grossly out of touch with with the struggles and suffering that the American people are facing you present in the United States and were very impressive in the debates in your position that you are advocating and how you articulated slowly put you in this position if you were the present United States right now. This is company or death.

What would you do I would tell Congress better. I would've I would have made sure that I made my condition now. From the outset and putting the American people first, I would carry out what I put in place back in March and the resolution thing that for the duration of the emergency pandemic. Knowing the impact it would have on people. We should have at least 1200 a month and direct direct payment to the American people that you provide that certainty.

My kids and as many other countries have done what what had happened with funneling billions and trillions of dollars through functional governmental agencies that by the time the so-called help get the American people. All they're getting is left over to unemployment program at the perfect example of that. Where I kind of money had been questioned, unemployment insurance, I can play from my district. We're still getting calls from people applied back in March, April, May, and they have not gotten a penny and and their put out on the street, and Stella Bell seem like it is and you are free to join your questionnaire covers the gamut. I also during the holidays mean Hawaii is it is a place all the islands which you even though it's got a dynamic economy was lot on tourism and this is now gone on for a couple of different seasons, including a holiday season a lot of West coasters that's their place to go in and that's not happening this year so that people at wherever you arts, whether in the beautiful islands of Hawaii or in the tougher Northeast with the snow and people are just hurting and I think this message is resonating with everybody.

Congress I Gabbard. It doesn't matter if you're Republican or Democrat. A trump supporter or Nancy Pelosi if they figured out that this we got to do more for our for our fellow Americans were hurting and I felt that why it was important to take that down and vote against the bill.

Some people say well you know hundred bucks is better than nothing. But as long as members of Congress capitulate to basically reward this kind of behavior from congressional leaders. The more it will continue, then the greater the American people will be left behind. Somebody got a take down for them.

I thought Pres. Trump yesterday called the bill at this great eye agreement can and Congress can come back in and increase the amount of money that the American people are getting and actually honor the sacrifice and struggles that they're facing. As I said early in the broadcast that I think the standard for protest when you're looking at a legal case. But what's the test here would be.

Can we do better than this and I think it's the truth of the matter is not only can we do better than this policy we have to do better than this American people will have to do better not an option. Anything that I thought of it. I would know.

Looking through the over 5500 page bill that we really had only a few hours to look out before they put it on the floor for about I waited a whole other issue that you got members of Congress voting on something that had any idea what then there but the thing that I thought is like my gosh people are acting as though this is business as usual and will continue throwing taxpayer dollars. All over the place, and again provide people with just a little bit to help though. It's actually going to make a difference for them are not ordinary time. The extraordinary time that require strong leadership from Democrats and Republicans stand together and say you know what we hear you we feel your pain and we will do all that is necessary to help you. The American people during her time of need strong psychosis.

I want to thank you to preparing for that legislation offers for children born alive not being afraid to do that as a Democrat taking that stand. You did in the Democrat debates I you and I know that there's a lot of people listen. Right now they are proud of that. That one that we can work in bipartisan ways.

Is there sad to see it go in Washington DC but are interested to and what your future may hold.

As well, but I want to say thank you and I want to make sure audience knew. I don't put it out of social media that you would done if I want to make sure audience new you would done as well and really followed up on what you did in the debates actually put for that legislation which most of your party disagrees with. So thank you for doing that.

I like that I made my noun during the day and wanted to be sure that the congressional record reflected those same views and and frankly showing that this should not be an issue that carries a part. I appreciate Tulsa Gabbard from whites and a great job. I thought the cheap cheap on the debates.

Frankly on that and the Democrats. I want everyone to be a great job and thrilled that you came on the broadcast say thank you for your comments.

Thank you for standing up for the American people, especially on this issue and as we go to in the broadcast again comes in Gabbard. Thank you for your stand on this very, very important. Thank you, thank you for your work and I wish you both want a very happy how is your family right folks.
