Secular ministration looks to restarting controversial Palestinian a despite Pederson way and the Taylor force Mike Pompeo George's live discuss live from Washington DC Jay Sekulow lines are open for your questions right now: 1-800-684-3110 one 800-6841 10, your host, secular secular.

Also, as we are looking at different rules. The Biden ministrations trying to make those that on its face appear to violate the law of United States clear law like the Taylor force act. Let me rewind your fear nor listen to the broadcast. The last couple of years. You might not know what I'm talking about when I say Taylor force act, the Taylor force act blocks the US funding of to go directly to the Palestinian Authority until it changes its Hafer sleigh program the paper sleep policy is is in essence any Palestinian who carries out attack against any Israeli is then their families receive money in compensation based on if they were killed or how long they go to prison or if they how how brutal the attack was, but in this specific instance, there was an American attack was former military but he was no longer the builders and on a school trip to Israel. And yet the Palestinian Authority are treated the attackers family. He was the attack of the terrorist was killed after killing Taylor Taylor force but but then this family received the pay for sleigh money pay for sleigh runs out of the PLO's office in Washington DC which was shut down by the trump administration, but the Biden administration wants to reopen. So 2018 is law passed that says were not to directly fund the Palestinian Authority at all that me know human of funding will get the policy people when it comes to water hospitals needs that they may have no interest were not to let the Palestinian Authority have these funds.

This actual pay for sleigh policy is on the books is part of the law of the Palestinian Authority.

It is actually inside their law so it's something they could remove that would take away the barrier for them receiving direct funding, but the Biden administration. Harry is looking away to work around this really talk to Mike Pompeo.

He's got a brand-new piece up@aclj.org and his co-author is stored force of this is up now@aclj.org and stored force is the father father of of Taylor force who was killed by Palestinian terrorist that was then family received all this money pay for slate money, but the binder ministration.

Harry is looking at a workaround. Absolutely, sir. One of the things that we should keep in volume is we should put all of this in context and so Sen. Mike Lee has famously said that house bill HR one was written by the devil himself.

One wonders what he would say about the Biden administration's decision to subsidize terrorism and effect as the administration plans to restart Palestinian aid as payments to Palestinian terrorists continue to flow.

To be clear, the Biden administration which has turned a blind to the possibility of that terrorists will enter our southern border and he's turned a blind eye to the fact that uncontested migrants may indeed spread COBIT on American streets Natalie Biden administration plans to resume taxpayer aid to the Palestinians. Even though the Palestinian government continues to use money to pay convicted terrorists.

This approach contravenes legislative and you as policy, and I hope hopefully we can find a way to show that it is completely illegal to your phone calls 100-684-3110 at 2000 684-3110. The binder ministration site with Iran. But now the Palestinian Authority looking at ways to use your money your taxpayer money to go to an organization.

The Palestinian Authority just has a law codified pay terrorist and they don't. They can use those funds so the US said no binder ministration once get that money flowing again and looking for all these workarounds, folks, we got to fight back ACLJ that are doubly impactor donation matching challenge with the market. The American Center for Law and Justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad. Whether it's defending religious freedom.

Protecting those who, through their faith, uncovering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy and fighting to protect life in the courts and in commerce. 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 oh $50 gift becomes 100.

This is a critical time for the ACLJ. The work we simply would not occur without your generous support in our matching challenge today make a difference in protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms are most important to you. 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 and powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn is called mission life will show you how you are personally pro-life battle supports, and publication includes a look at all major ACLJ pro-life cases were fighting for the rights of pro-life activists. The ramifications of Roe V Wade, 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in emotion ministry and what Obama care means to the pro-life side of the many ways your membership in the ACLJ is empowering the right question.

A free copy of mission life today online ACLJ/secular to just give you an idea, the Palestinian Authority employs some 550 people in its pay for sleigh bureaucracies because it's part of Palestinian law. Housing Authority law of these bonus payments for Israeli Arabs and Arabs who have who take carry out attacks on Israelis get Taylor force was not Israeli not Jewish. They still praised his attacker and terrorist who killed him as a martyr for 500 feet 50 people working in this office when you go to the percent of their budget over 7% of the policy authorities budget $350 million goes to the pay for sleigh program.

Only $220 million go for non-terrorist welfare programs.

They spend more money paying families of terrorists.

They do on trying to create a better life for their own people talk about all this with former secretary of state Mike Pompeo ACLJ's a senior counsel for global affairs wrote the new piece up@aclj.org about the binder ministration looking for work around.

How ridiculous is the work around any particular Sewanee how are out our phone calls and numbered 164 3110 if you want to talk to us on and it's 100-684-3110, but this is what the Palestinian Authority is proposing the binder ministration claims it renewed a for the Palestinian people won't violate the Taylor force act which parts eight aid programs that directly benefit the Palestinian authority and the Palestinian Authority believes it can satisfy the administration by making Terrace compensation quote needs based, so it'll be more like if someone passed away in your family and you needed some kind of welfare he needed assistance. But again they would be doing it because they promoted these acts of terror. The only reason the family would be eligible for this needs based support is because they were supporting terrorism. This is we got a phone call coming in from Israel lied to Lou Lou, welcome to secular you're on the air.

Protect my call.

I just want to clarify couple items about the paper sleigh program.

I have a construction company. Here I will eat about 40 Palestinian Arabs and I can tell you firsthand that they felt told me that their government Boss and his henchmen are the most corrupt people in the world. One egg is given to them, whether it's USA European aid and Europeans are the worst. It goes either right into their pockets, which you know Arafat was worth billions and not buses worth billions of and and wanted to go to the paper sleigh program and determined. I mean it's completely illegal because glyphosate and II have an employee who unfortunately his nephew was a terrorist and he heard a couple of Israelis and he only got it a three year sentence.

It didn't killed King. He only got about 2000 shekels a month. On the other hand, he has a buddy another terrorist who actually killed and this one if you remember the situation and become our weight killed the Vogel family. Yes, I mean that family is getting something like 12,000 shekels and and so it is completely illegal and that and explain a little bit more about the Taylor force act because yeah I got somewhat what the US did Lewis say because the key is this a codified program. It's not something that PA hides like he said this is codified in their in their law and there's different levels of funding depending on different levels of attacks is a significant amount of their budget for the US finally said were no longer to fund the PA directly 20 18th of the Taylor force act after an American student was killed by one of these terrorist who is incentivized to carry out the attack because of the paper sleigh program so the illegality of it is clear you cannot, as a as a whether you govern a territory are or you are any kind of government entity whatsoever have a program that incentivizes killing innocent individuals and that is exactly what happened but it took until 2018. The Taylor force act where the US and were no longer going to fund the Abbas PA directly.

Are we still going to try to provide some welfare to the Palestinian people in need, yes, but really go around the PA rectify the PA directly recollect them decide how to use the funds because we talked about a 7% of their budget $350 million goes to the paper sleigh program and has 550 employees only $220 million of their budget goes to non-terrorist welfare programs. So mostly goes to terrorist and their family welfare programs. The US said no but now the Biden administration fan is looking for a way listens to State Department spokesperson Ned price he's asked about re-engaging with the Palestinians. Might Pompeo be joining us in the next segment. But here's the current State Department spokesperson Ned price on what how the how the binder ministration is looking at re-engaging bite 17 as part of that we are reviewing the demonic presence that you alluded to. We are ensuring that will enable us to fully conduct our complete range of activities including engagement with passing people with the passing authorities public diplomacy assistance diplomatic reporting. We talked about our commitment to four funding for Palestinians including Palestinian refugees. We are committed, I thought, it's all about the I think you will see concrete manifestations of that going forward, sitting there you go out there and they're doing anything they can commitment to funding Palestinians this reset right there. Now they're going to have to do a workaround because there's existing law that bars them from giving any aid directly to the Palestinian Authority. The policy authorities looking at changing their law to say well it's now going to be needs based for family so it will be part of the regular welfare program, but they also have pay for sleigh guests on the books. Yeah in a couple of things are done first. So I think the United States would have to directly ignore the law to be quite honest with you. To do this like the Palestinians can change their law however they want, but if they don't cease to pay for sleigh program. The US law.

Jordan says the Secretary of State must certify that these kind of payments have stopped. So whether they're officials sanction payments were not that would trigger the law. I would say two things Jordan.

First of all, this is not complicated.

I mean, of course, it's the correct policy for the United States to not fund governments or governmental entities. However you feel about the Palestinian administration if they are engaging in this type of behavior if they're paying for the slaughter of Americans and Israelis know your night. I'm not so sure we should be funding the Palestinian Authority anyway. I really don't think we should. But this, this should be something that unifies everyone in the comment that that Ned price. The State Department spokesperson made they're actually trying to do the same thing and letting the PLO open that facility in Washington DC that federal law there. Jordan says that day that that Palestinians would owe more than $600 million if they are to open that facility and that's not just a suggestion that is federal law and the Biden administration is looking to get around that as well. So the two things your mean it's up one a policy question. The trunk policy was correct on this. The other one is just a matter of federal law Jordan. They cannot do this without changing the law, but it looks like they can try anyway.

The other try workarounds everywhere it were actually looking right now working with our our freedom of information act humor for your team to start already looking it up for in documents by the State Department at how they intend to work around the Taylor force act how they intend to do this because Harry, I don't think this is an easy repeal at the congressional level is not easy selves. The American people. This is a law that is very bipartisan is not a bipartisan support for Israel and against terrorist attacks and also protects American citizens, I mean in it is itself is of Taylor force of that the Orinda situation of their sword honors American citizen. This the specific act so look for workarounds and looks at the Palestinians are willing to play ball that I think that's precisely correct. So first we should note that it is clear beyond question that money is fungible as number two so I'm so sorry number one number two accounting tends to be fungible and I think the Biden State Department is likely to engage in a craven capitulation to creative accounting to allow aid to flow to the Palestinians and so I think families precisely correct, we should not be aiding the Palestinian Authority whatsoever. Most of those funds flow into Western banks in Paris, New York City and in London they do not help the Palestinian people. So instead, the Palestinian Authority in some sense is a state sponsored and I use that."

State sponsor of terror. And so we should not we should withdraw all of our support for the Palestinian Authority, there is a great new piece up exclusive to ACLJ.org by Mike Pompeo and by Stuart force Taylor force father check that ACLJ.org Mike Pompeo joins in the next segment live support the work of ACL gender matching challenge month of March.

We are grateful.

You forgive today online ACLJ watching share this with your friends and family. Now our source for senior counsel for global affairs Mike Pompeo joining us today by phone and get to but that he's got a new piece up along with his co-written with a Stuart force the father of Taylor force up@aclj.org called in, suggesting, or is it we tweeted out got on social media so his secretary Pompeo is the Biden administration planning on violating the Taylor force act that would been explained that to you folks but for the first question I had for secretary Pompeo goes back to what we were discussing earlier this week, which was this issue that out under his leadership the State Department United States declared that China was engaged in genocide with its actions against the Uighur Muslim minority in Western China and yesterday secretary Pompeo I we don't have a name to it yet, but the Biden administration. I went on the record from the white from the White House team acknowledging that genocide saw me. Maybe there is a step closer to at least acknowledging what type. The Chinese are doing a look at. I'm happy to hear that I hope will do that publicly hope will do it often, though aggressive with an established party leadership every time they meet the things that are taking place people yesterday I met with three folks in my office a lot of mother. I was abducted and now added serving a 20 year sentence in a jail in question. Janet was horrific. It was so sad to be with this woman's daughter yesterday with the horse that are taking place. There are real. The course will like this is now impacting people who are active here United States will we have to be.

Goodbye demonstration needs to confront the Chinese about it. Ultimately build out a global coalition to impose real costs until Chinese commerce party changes its way again Now I just want to update people on that the Biden White House is not shying away from the word genocide whether not that means or to make a huge push at this at the international level was a bill that coalition we talked about with secretary Pompeo to about on the Olympics that remains to be seen but there is some movement since we discussed with secretary earlier this week I want your right to the new piece you got up on the Taylor force act. Everyone that I just want it in your own words because we talked about pay for slam ethics can be sometimes and when we were with this law was going through 2018 would certainly talk about a lot of our broadcast done a lot of work on it.

The ACLJ interoffice in Israel, but this is it's hard for people. Imagine secretary Pompeo that the Palestinian Authority has a pay for slip sleigh program codified in their law the Palestinian authority had for years made it their law and the policy that someone who engaged in activity that resulted in the death or serious injury of Israeli. They paid a family that would pay them a stipend that would give the retirement benefit of all the things that will most outrageous kind of thing to reward people for taking action against Israeli citizens and the ministration has indicated that they may go back to providing resources. The Palestinian Authority very leadership inside-out the West Bank that is doing the paper sleigh program in some way related to the Pharaoh laundering money or terrace.

I thought Palestinian Authority engage in terrorist activity.

Bosses close to it with us as well. And now it appears that the net effect government will give the Palestinian court resources about a pickup administration. It stopped a cold was the right thing to do and the Taylor force act requires this pylon. I hope by the ministration will go back to that policy. But this is an Taylor force you wrote the piece of ACLJ.org with Stuart force his son who was served in the military but was no longer the military was just a tourist in Israel is not was Israeli he wasn't Jewish he was killed by Palestinian terrorist's name was Taylor force you wrote the piece with Stuart force his father and that terrorist was still praised as a martyr because he was killed in that family receives thousands of dollars and up until the Taylor force act when the US was just sending money to the Palestinian Authority they were diverting and we talked about in your piece more money to their paper sleigh program into their welfare programs for norm for for halcyon people a lot of money absolute agreement was going to write along with Sandra Gerber deeply involved with this report awfully long time as well as the father of of course went to the same quality that it was a West Point graduate. This is a perfect example of administration, not understanding that you preemptively reward the Palestinian Authority by granting the US taxpayer fun while they are still underwriting the terrace to prey on Israeli and American citizens in Israel that you are you doing are an enormous disservice to help demonstration will go back to that but they are talking about are those on the far left you on Omar and others who think that this makes sense is not good for America. It's not good for people who are in Israel and certainly not good for the Israeli also the wrong thing to do for that Palestinian people. They should not be encouraged and rewarded for engaging in this terrorist behavior. This is easy to actions secretary Pompeo. I did that again that the Biden mistresses look yet one is how to reopen the PLO office in DC without them having to pay upwards of $600 million in fines and in second how to get money to the Palestinian Authority directly without violating the Taylor force act directly and I don't see ways around either of those. But we now know from the Biden team were looking for work actually right now that they are actively working with the Palestinians on some work on workarounds, not to say get rid of paper sleigh but how how we can work around so we can get you more money, which to me is really troubling that way. Bob law, the very clear by the way they were affected by the bipartisan way that the thing that really surprised me about what the ministration is doing it just that they are truly appealing to them what were most part of the party because went Taylor force was passed. It was deeply bipartisan.

Everybody understood it was the right thing, regard ministration with was very clear to the passing leadership when a lot of people about finding a better life. The people living in the West Bank have a better life, but when ocular American taxpayer money to go to those who continue to underwrite care was a policy with Aronowitz, a policy across the world.

And sadly, this administration appears to be trying to find some loophole which I do not believe exist with the price of local to circle back this unambiguous law, which is the right policy as well. You know what is to me. I think we look at this and again I am so glad we got this piece up to the walks people through this is written by us and to ascertain Pompeo it's exclusive to ACLJ it's the pieces of the titles right on the homepage ACLJ.org is the Biden ministration planning on violating the Tarrant Taylor force act and I look at one of the ways the PA believes it can satisfy the administration. This is from the piece is by making terrace compensation quote needs based so they're gonna toss it secretary Pompeo. I guess into the general welfare, except for the only reason these families are need this assistance is because they the government there. The governing entity that the policy authority was encouraging a family member to go and possibly lose their life as a terrorist to kill till kill Israeli or even American like Taylor force or or so. I mean this is to be a workaround in the Biden ministration except that it's good I feel like America were paying blood money, cynical, and it doesn't comport with the law.

I hope that once cooler heads prevail and study medication without abide by the Taylor force act and get the policy right that the further south with Israel. This will only undermine the capacity to extend what we did with Abraham court and build out a more peaceful, stable, mentally pieces up and ACLJ.org by secretary Pompeo is always great to have a secretary. Thanks for joining us folks support the work of ACLJ company impact your donation and ACLJ.org the entire month of March will be right at the American Central and Justice were engaged in 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 are most important to you and your family.

Give a gift today online ACLJ live from Washington DC Jay Sekulow and now secular secular what that was seated at secretary Pompeo or Senior advisor to counsel for global affairs on with us to talk about that the Taylor force act infected by administration is looking for workaround on the stove asked a new update coming later. The broadcast big religious liberty when out of Georgia University. I will get to that later on the broadcast.

By doing take some phone calls. Now Becky in Texas online what he Becky welcome secular arm to gain from strengthening their relationship without any authority. I basically like with the overall agenda hidden agenda.

You know that we need to be made aware of. So I think it's what Ricker now talks about a lot of another one of our senior advisors who came out of acting director of national intelligence, and so I mean I think that is all flows with the is that they want to get back to the way things were previously not just under the Biden administration.

One of the Bush years and under the previous administration. Basically, since there's been a Israeli-Palestinian crisis or if you want to call it that, is that they want to have a direct relationship with the Palestinians need a workaround from these laws, they want the policies to be able reopen up their offices.

They want to re-legitimize the Palestinians and make that which I think is very dangerous. It goes back to John Kerry.

Still part of this administration again and they want to make the Palestinians, the center point and anything that happens in the Middle East and in and of course I mean they got there around issues where they want to appease Iran, but they want to go back to instead of the Abraham court said we can handle two things at once.

You can still make peace with Israel do business with Israel and still hope to one day get to a Palestinian agreement and maybe that will help actually put pressure on the Palestinians to knock off the terrorism so they can get peace for their people, but they want to go back to that old old way of thinking fan which is that the Palestinian issue is the number one issue you ignore everything else.

Well, it's an appeasement strategy.

Plain and simple and I think the comparison with the Iran situation is a good one. Jordan, because quite frankly it's the same posture that's taken. It's the idea that American strength in the world is not a good thing that it doesn't afford a maximum freedom that it doesn't afford the flourishing of human society. When all the evidence says the opposite Jordan.

If it were to try to appease an affront to try to cater to a united to evil. Essentially, in many of these locations is not to be the people that are in the flourishing skin to be the governments that are providing oppression, but luck that that's just a fundamentally different view of how to engage foreign policy now. I think it has been conclusively found to be lacking, but it shouldn't be any surprise that the same cast of characters that implemented it last time around. Will try to implement again and are now just maybe give you one follow-up from the conversation you had a secretary Pompeo.

He briefly mentioned congressional support from the likes of Bill Han, Omar, but I really think that this is a second layer of pressure that we need to put on because the yes it's entirely the Biden administration's fault here. There is a law that they must follow that they are now refusing to follow the Jordan. I really think that bipartisan support in the Congress ought to come back and say no you won't.

We still have the power of the purse we said once that you couldn't do this in both of these accounts working to say it again and by the way, if you try to go around us were just gonna pull that account down altogether when I can give you the money in the first place to choose to dispense. So this is the Biden administration's fault Jordan but that bipartisan coalition in Congress they need to hear from us as well. You know, I think, again, is folks is really coming to the next segment two as well. This is something we've got to fight back on were to do so with ACLJ we are to get it's bad policy.

There's laws in place to protect from that bad policy order to put four is in to see how they're trying to work around the laws. This administers that the just dying to get money into the hands of the Palestinian Authority. It's got a paper sleigh about that program codified in their law just like how they're rushing back to try to figure how to get the Iranians back to sipping tea with them in Geneva the same idea the same failed policies and we know that because the Abraham records show that these policies the past failed.

There's that this is what they're committed to work committed to putting roadblocks in the way his secretary, Pompeo said, hopefully awake into the I didn't think there is no work around this would be violating the law can't workaround this bipartisan piece of legislation will be right back on secular the American Center for Law and justice were engaged in coalitions at home and abroad.

Not just to join his guest on our broadcasts but to be part of the ACLJ team right before go to because let me just encourage you during this month of March. We have a matching challenge. Whatever you're able to donate online is effectively doubled it double the impact of your donation.

Was it me with a group of donors they come to us to say we will match every donation that comes through in the month of March to go down ACLJ.org. If you're financially able donate online and EW impact and it's how we can bring on Mike Pompeo to the ACLJ team. How can bring Rick Grenell on the ACLJ team and of course to all the other work that we do, including this broadcast every single day, Monday through Friday with all the latest news and analysis and all that goes into that so dearly today and ACLJ that orbits a great month is you double the impact of your donation. Let's go back to the phones Allen in New York on line 4 hey Alan, welcome to secular yelling is an absolute pleasure is real quickly little a little bit of a follow-up to think you've already said that all of your previous callers trying to get to the motivation of the Biden administration, you're well aware of the Palestinian media watch that fight everything coming out of the Palestinian Authority between everything we know about the financial corruption between everyone knowing what their agenda. The Palestinian leaders tell you that all of Israel's occupied Palestine so what what could possibly motivate. How do how can the bonded Mr. Nock and Jen sock even say that there is nothing that benefits the US by continuing the relationship with them when they've already told us in every possible way they can that they don't support peace that they will continue to support violence and that Israel as a Jewish state will never exist as long as the Palestinians have one last breath and them I want to list exacting US envoy on the you went to the UN Security Council. This from the Biden administration Richard Mills as he answers it for you. We might not like his answer and then will break down what he says.

By 21 patient will restore credible US engagement with Palestinians as well. Israeli will involve removing US relations with the Palestinian leadership Palestinian people relations which have atrophied over the last four years.

Incident Biden has been clear in his attempt to restore US assistance programs that support economic development and humanitarian aid Palestinian people and to take steps to reopen noncommissioned that were closed on the last US ministration. Okay, so I would break down if you want Harry what is credible US engagement with the Israelis that that that bothers me but stick with passing through the credible US US engagement with the palisades that has atrophied atrophied so it's was wasted away. It was destroyed by the past administration because the past administration was based off a US law passed by Congress bipartisan.

That said, we can't work with you directly with the funding restrict on your offices that direct that funding as well because you have a pay for sleigh program a payment program to terrorists to kill civilians and one of those civilians happen to be an American citizen that was killed. So either you change the law there or you get no more money. And yet there saying it was like the trumpet ministration did this on their own. That's not true. Congress did this absolutely so I think most Americans appreciate what Israel has done for the Middle East.

Israel stands for the rule of law, Israel stands for democracy, Israel stands for a constitutional republic but it's important to note that hatred of Israel is a motivating emotion for global elites.

It has become. If you will the furniture of educated minds in the United States and Europe. So restoring relationships with the corrupt government of Palestine is one way that these elites can send a message to the trumpet ministration and to the American people who support Israel. So now we have, if you will, a convention of globalists who are supporting the restoration of relationships with Iran and China and other human rights violators and they now want to restore. For instance, the Uranian nuclear accord, even there though there is no evidence whatsoever that that benefits either. The American people or advances peace in the Middle East. So I think at the end of the day the elites that occupy positions of power within the Biden administration are committed to one thing we named our ties with Israel. I think that is at the end of the day, plain and simple. Their objective and one way of weakening ties with Israel is by restoring relationships with terrorists or with a governmental type organization such as the Palestinian Authority that support terrorism are folks to take the final call on this & that I want to start out and let me let me do things racially stand.

Congress has an oversight role here is really because they wrote the law was signed into law. This is not something the Biden ministration cancers overlook this, they can't. I think their argument that will just put this into a general needs-based program that is in it, but if they don't take pay for sleigh off the box.

They should be able to open up their their their their consulates are that there are the PLO's offices in DC and in the US without paying the fine 6/600,000,000 dollars that on the money to do and they should really get direct funding and by the way thing I think for people wondering about humanitarian assistance. Let's be clear, the Taylor force access we will get humanitarian assistance into the pit to the Palestinian people were succulent trusted the money going through the Palestinian Authority.

We will of the people that are paying Terrace to kill Americans and Israelis to administer that humanitarian.those dollars toward because we don't believe that they will actually be spent on humanitarian dollars. Look, that the Palestinians are doing this out in the open Jordan, I think we need to say this very clearly on both of these issues that we talked about today on the pay for sleigh program. They literally have 550 people working in that department is not something that is hidden. They openly admitted they have not even made any attempt to change that program, so there's no way in the world.

The secretary blinking could certify that that program has ceased, which is what the federal law requires in order to restore funding, so any kind of a work around that they're trying on that one just falls should fall Jordan on very deaf ears. Now the second appointed that the anti-terror law that was passed a couple of years ago under the trumpet ministration.

It said that they can't open an office in Washington DC unless they will pay these more than $600 million in fines during the Palestinians openly admit that they can't afford. That said, they openly admit that they will not open this office, at least not out in the open unless those fines would not apply so both of these things they have acknowledged they have conceded their happening and they haven't walked away from. So from the administration's point of view, there is no work around it would comply with the law and when it comes to federal statute, you talk about congressional oversight. Jordan, I really think the article one branch here in a bipartisan fashion needs to be jealous about what they did what they spoke on Sec. Pompeo mentioned this but in a bipartisan fashion. By the way, largely because a vast majority of bipartisan Americans support this policy. They enacted both of these provisions, Jordan, and I really think that Congress should come back and say no.

We absolutely meant it. And while we don't agree that there's any kind of workout around in current law work in the same again. Jordan in this year's funding bill working actually pull those dollars down completely if you don't comply. I think that kind of congressional jealousy is very appropriate here is something only take is called the final call on Taylor force actually come back of religious liberty victory which were always fighting for the ACLJ so I will take the final call we come back so my king on the line.

I want to answer your question is your good good question about Taylor force. We talked about this, we never will forget who Taylor force is this father is a co-author of the pieces inclusively foraclj@aclj.org co-author with Sec. Pompeo check that piece out share with you for the family and social media so they know what the Biden ministration is trying to do, to dishonor this young man's life. Taylor force his life. He didn't deserve to die. He was on the battlefield was a tourist in a school program will tell you, tell you more about what happened in an instant. Come back in another big religious liberty when is always support the work of a sealed tape. Is this a great month financially double your impact department matching challenge and ACLJ.only one. A society can agree that the most vulnerable and is there any hope for that culture to survive.

Protecting those faith uncovering 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 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 simply would not occur without your generous heart wrenching challenge make a difference in protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms are most important to you. You forgive today online ACLJ by nutritious trying to money directly to the Palestinian Authority, though they have not done with the US law has stated which is that you must get rid of the pay for sleigh program is partier law. Stop paying Terrace families. Tears text it's Israelis or Americans are people visiting Israel and and if you don't do that when I can get you any funding directly really go around you to find people with humanitarian programs regulate you. This was for the Biden ministration course they want to cozy up to Abbas so they were to cozy up to the Iranians, they would have their clutches and their meetings at the United Nations in Geneva and covert northern Vatican vaccinated. They can see that at long term. They can eat out shared espresso and a meal with it in Geneva and discuss these these issues with terrorist by the way, but that's what they want to get back to they really want to get back to that idea but Mike had a great question on line one icon for Missouri hey Mike Logan Sekulow, a guide dog again. Taylor force if he was in the Army and I got out traveling over there and they take him out like that. How did they get that kind Intel and where do they get it.

And why was he singled out he wasn't singled out. So let me take you back to what happened. It was in 2016 there was a terrorist attack by a Palestinian. It was a nice attack in Tel Aviv where you see a lot of people that if you are traveling to Israel as a students at tourist, you likely go through Tel Aviv which is a very different place than would say Jerusalem very different kind of city. The attack actually Mike injured 11 people, the terrace was killed as well. So it's not clear that this attacker knew that he was doing anything more than killing going after and stabbing and ultimately leading to 11 people being injured in Taylor force being killed a group of Americans that's kind of what the I think the target was evident that attacker knew his family would benefit regarding how brutal the attack was if he killed someone that he was ultimately killed his family back in the Palestinian territories would make more money because of that, it's incentivized terrorism, you know, and so as I get it it's it's it's also I think using some the people in the most vulnerable situations. No economic situation say well if you get a fair member go out and kill some people.

You're gonna put your family a better financial spot so you may die, but you shall die knowing that the beat of better financial position is horrendous reasoning and logic right it's totally outside of how we would ever think that this is okay so this was the terrace or just just kill Taylor force directly.

It was actually H school trip from Vanderbilt business school shows a group of Vanderbilt students.

Vanderbilt University students. There were over there so 11 injured one kill Taylor force in the terrace coat killed as well and that's what's finally finally spurred fan Congress into action to say you know what organist stop the executive branch's ability to decide and by was signed by into law by Pres. Trump. So the executive branch agreed.

But this but very bipartisan support.

Here, organist stop funding to the Palestinian Authority unless they do, X, Y and Z data to write your and and and honestly did this funding should have in stock long before but it was that incident that finally drove the bipartisan support to the point were quite honestly, Jordan, Inc. they couldn't ignore the with the will of the American people. The American people. Their eyes are wide open to the fact that this is a terrible program.

It was that killing that that brought the knowledge of the existence of the program to a more widespread scale were Democrats. Quite frankly, in Washington. Jordan couldn't ignore it and I really want to hammer this point home because the law specifically says that the payments cannot continue. It doesn't say unless the Palestinians change the structure. Jordan it says unless the Secretary of State certifies that these payments have ceased well I just don't think there's any way in the world. The secretary blinking is going to confirm that because he knows good and well that they haven't ceased and that would bring you know his own set of troubles onto him so he's not going to certify that maybe the Palestinians will try to re-organize a little bit the Jordan, that is not what the law requires in order for the payments to continue.

I don't think they should continue anyway, even if the payments were to cease the Jordan under federal law. US law secretary blinking must certify before that begin. So I really think the next time secretary blinking comes out.

He should be asked that question.

Are you prepared to certify that the paper for us. Late payments have ceased is not to be willing to do that yeah you look at work around. That's what a Celtic car for the operations they write, the State Department try to figure because they're hinting already through their spokespeople.

They want to get that real direct relationship going again how to leap you how they gonna do that when they doing to do that is in violation of existing US law, so we are to stay on it at the ACL chase, not something we just talked about again is not just another were bringing back to talk about Taylor for sex talk about it is because the Taylor force act, the Biden ministration is trying to work around it.

We need to all be aware of that. Just like yesterday when we pointed out, this provision on states being able to lower taxes in the American rescue plan and those challenges will be coming that will be supporting at the ACLJ but I do want to get a hairy opportunity. You got new blog up Perry on a religious liberty victory at the US Supreme Court involving a Georgia University tell people about that. This is a very very important decision of Jordan NSI pointed out in the blog post dangerous for Christian individual schools and colleges are now clearly and in the net on the nation's horizon. Why is this the case it's the case because left-wing advocates and others continue to advance policies that place constitutional rights risk recently. Jordan, you wrote a piece which argue that the American people demand what in adherence to the United States Constitution, the rule of law, and they demand accountable leaders and so we demand these things despite the authoritarian response by state leaders to the pandemic accountability at the end of the day means accountability to the people not to upper class elites, globalists, and social justice warriors who wish to essentially dissolve our constitutional republic through the deployment of progressive ideology and so the decision by the United States Supreme Court in use boo them versus pursue skating that was an 8 to 1 decision, which upheld the right of enroll college students to exercise their religion by sharing their faith on campus. Why is that decision important because it shrinks the power of the elite bureaucrats at universities to abrogate and to diminish students first amendment rights. This will indeed be a continuing fight. We will need to be continually vigilant and there will be other opportunities for the ACLJ and its members to engage just briefly I decide breaking news that I have ever stares a nominations get going to the Senate floor. What's the timeline on that we know yet yeah just held a vote to actually formally discharge meta-committee that had to happen because the committee that was tied Jordan that discharge did happen Joe mansion and Susan Collins both voted for it to his final confirmations can happen next week and Jordan.

We knew it was an uphill climb.

It looks like we won't get there Jordan were not gonna let up the final confirmation will be next week with Susan Collins and Joe mansion both voted to advance his nomination just minutes ago. Those are key now that doesn't mean you will deftly vote to cat to again confirm that we what we watch that very carefully as well as always support the work of ACLJ month of March.
