After massive collection power grab males live in Washington DC below Mdm. Pres., I want to be clear about what just happened on the Senate floor every single Senate Republican just voted against starting debate starting debate on legislation to protect Americans voting rights phone lines are open questions right now. 1-800-684-3110. The mail that we have in front of this is not so much about voting rights as it is a federal takeover of the election any partisan federal takeover the election system. Now, your host Logan Sekulow is secular welcome to secular website.
My dad and my brother drummer will hide and benefit others. Your newsletter on Mike Pompeo as well as Carla Smith be joining us. We would actually show today. Obviously, we've been discussing HR one. Everything's been going on last night ended and a filibuster didn't even really make it to table this and maybe you could come up later on, but in the real reality that is good reset again and it's I think that the topic we need to discuss majorly today as well as absent the specific the people are freaking out about this and why are the Democrats freaking out wire Chuck my structure out there look as we've always said is this always is cutesy name Joe the third, the voter rights act.
Are you things like that make you feel. Of course everyone should be voting for this, but we all know what's really in these things. This is a a federal takeover of state run elections something we don't necessarily want. If you're on a certain specific sides of the political aisle, or just you know maybe you just feel like the federal government should have the much control.
However, this always names an electronic feel bad using these names like how dare you vote against this but really what this looks like is that in general, the Democrats will come to the realization that not just this, but any major sweeping change that they hoped would come about due to abiding presidency due to some change in in the makeup, a lot of it is destined for failure well and the Democrats promise that they were to go big and bold and have these sweeping changes across the fabric of America and Chuck Schumer even said first we take the Senate, then we take America and that entire mindset that they were just going to come in and just start changing things into the image of the left is now starting to hit reality which is that if you don't have 60 votes in the Senate your agendas not to move forward. The Senate traditionally was the place where compromise could happen since shy partisanship reaching across the aisle and eat now more than ever, were saying that the Senate is just an extension of Nancy Pelosi's House of Representatives trying to pass the agenda that people like AOC in the squad are trying to start in the house and move through the Senate essay enjoys Washington DC as you may be made understand what video verify later on for watching on social media watch NACLJ.org on YouTube, you'll see these videos. It captures what hell happened last night but they may be people's heads. The idea of a filibuster will brought up earlier I had shifted a little special comes to discus really didn't even make it that far. It really didn't love you and love traditionally in the United States Senate. It has meant it.
It's meant to be a cooling-off chamber for legislation eating a lot of things things can move quickly in the house to turn the makeup of the house turns over quickly as well, but the Senate was supposed to be a place where like you said, bipartisan agreement would come to place it would take a little bit longer to get to the United States Senate. You know, Logan. Traditionally, in order to end debate on a piece of legislation. The Senate, you either had to do it exhaust the Senators or you had to get all of them to agree something called unanimous consent to end debate. You're right that has changed a couple of whipsaw times along the way.
In 1917 date they came up with what is called cloture that is actually a technical term for ending a filibuster. It's been changed a couple of times over the years but that's what failed last night Logan they could not get cloture. They could not get 60 votes to end debate on the motion to proceed to debate on the Belden even begins in Joe Manson's gonna say a lot of things today. Logan but honestly what happened.
They couldn't get any Republican support, and so the bill died last night. Actually, RA: drop in one 800 684 31 1000 684-3110 we get back. Mike Pompeo is joining us were talk about this, as well as other topics that are happening in the world you want to stay to the listener that that's coming just a few minutes watching or fearless and short commercial break at 1-800-684-3110 if you want your voice heard on the air and check out all the great content. NACLJ.org challenges facing Americans as time went on freedom and short constitutional rights are under attack more important than ever to stay with the American Center for Law and Justice on the frontlines protecting your freedoms and rights in courts in Congress and in the public arena and we have an exceptional track record of success. But here's the bottom line we could not do or work without your support, we remain committed to protecting your religious and constitutional freedoms that remains our top priority, especially now during these challenging times. The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side, you're already a member.
Well, this is the perfect time to stand with us NACLJ.org where you can learn more about her life changing, member today NACLJ 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 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 Gold edition will show you how you are 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 Obama care me in many ways your membership is powering the right question for mission life today online/hello Mike, just a little bit here but we are discussing the issue at hand, which is that last night overnight and overnight evening that you are couple Harris received over the vote to start really devote far for the right.
The voting rights act, which again you allow these titles of a lot of these specific it sounds a lot sweeter than it is. That's holidays Washington DC in general. They always put a title on the base. You know, how could you ever vote against this out there you but it's just a trick you. The American people. It's just to make you feel bad for believing the way you do by putting a cutesy title. I we are joined by Mike Pompeo the Democrats last night showed they are unanimously behind a federal takeover of our elections. It seems like an question for you. What does that signal sent to our country really, but left the ruling class trying to create even more power to themselves that what you want. Simple things like people be able to to record a show and I did about what I think your money near the candidate you don't like right deeply appointed by the First Amendment as well. Also a demonstration in terms of the unanimity thumbprint group within the Democratic Party.
This is who they are. They are people who want the power to be in Washington DC people secretary Pompeo.
The Republicans were able to block using the filibuster. The legislation from moving forward but were now seeing the left coming out in full force trying to call for doing away with the filibuster. We know how quickly Sen. mansion flipped from.
I will not vote for this to giving his vote to it last night. Do you think that were in danger of seeing the so-called moderates like Sen. mansion center cinema caving to the far left of the party and maybe going forward with doing away with the filibuster well pretty clear about what you wrote about that. They were unequivocal. There were no caveats but not that I've been around that allow one never know we have to build a field day have to continue to make the case why this would be a calamity for public we need to demand the parapet that they're not going to keep Away every time Barrett defeated by the Republicans in the Senate, to make the case that the filibuster need to go away for some higher noble calling that they have asserted whether the great UBL art caving, however, whatever their their topic at the data we need to give up on the future. One of my concerns from that iPad on center cinema was. She said it is time for the Senate to debate the legislative filibuster. Now I understand that she thinks she can make the case for it and you mentioned her op-ed was unequivocal.
She thinks that that it is important for the filibuster to stay but doesn't opening debate show that there could be some wiggle room because it's something that exists now and what would a debate do but potentially change minds what what what important that we understand that they know that their agenda is unpopular. They know that they have only a number of months before they are likely to lose control of both houses of the United States Congress and that they're going to have an American move heaven and earth as quickly for We need to continue to make the case for why our writer principal to write and then fight the inside battles and five United States Senate with every ounce of energy that we all have that I can't tell you what you want to have the debate but I can tell you that I have every grabbed one of our leaders think you can make sure they remain united. Absolutely your my CDC is probably one Mr. Sec. just echo your concerns about bedridden by senators he knows just about a couple weeks ago June 6. In fact, the Sen. mansion wrote an op-ed in which he said I will vote against the for the people acting as you know, last night he did an about-face and he voted for cloture to proceed to the for the people like you can say it's about a compromise… Compromise is not an legislative text and he voted for the underlying bill last night so I share that concern about. I wondered if you might just say a word or two to our listeners about your concern that you've written about NACLJ about the weapon icing of the IRS. As you know, this underlying bill would repeal the Lois Lerner role, which was put in place to keep the IRS from targeting the American people based on their viewpoint. This bill would repeal that rule. So talk to her listeners.
If you would for just a moment about the threat that that would pose so we all lived in recent memory where we had the Internal Revenue Service making it really groups to establish themselves with 501(c)(3) and investigating conservative groups of that that the woman in charge of the time was named Lois Lerner, collector for the rule, the company's mission by the right didn't say you you cannot go after left leaving group suite with another IRS is neutral and ought to just do the people were collecting taxes which are statutorily mandated. The fact that they're going after that they want to unwind. It means that they believe they can direct the IRS to attack whether that's churches, conservative leaning 501(c)(3) places like a field can undermine the ability to do their work are constitutionally protected more than assault on freedom of speech that assault on freedom of assembly. I hope that a field day and all of us will continue to work to make sure that we don't have another Lois Lerner attacking those of us who come at this from a Christian perspective of those of us who are conservative believers absolutely shift really few minutes to shift to Iran and what's happening there.
The Iranians elected to serve the ayatollahs pick up for a new President's President-elect is responsible for the mass murder is called murder. Present mass murder of thousands of Iranians and was sanctioned by name when you were Secretary of State check making this man President.
While the by demonstrations trying to negotiate their way back into the deal with Iran be sort of a big red flag.
Think about how the Arabians may act in this current state.
The message I only hope that there will be selected by the Ayatollah he could be in charge in 2030 years or so is of the revolutionary mindset is IRG. The advocate extract another confession that probably allow the fork of the impact it might have dollars to spend on terror campaign. The Arabian people will suffer greatly at the hands of the rabbi you see that elected President of Iran. I hope this administration doesn't think for a moment that they can negotiate a deal that will prevent Iran from getting a weapon program or conducting terror.
And to think that somehow he will change the course of this revolutionary day in the news as the DOJ has just seized allegedly solves is coming out dozens of any read the headlines. Kind of hard to even come apart through dozens of Iranian news media sites including domains, websites, and those are registered Americans. They were able to sort of seize those virtually if you will. Also some English-language television because there is a spread of disinformation coming. Is this still a step in the right direction to kind of throttle Arabian propaganda in the reporting and write the good news that they were prepared to take. Section that imposed Wilcox on the rating regime in their effort to spread information about the world.
I'm looking forward to learning more about what they did but if the headlines are right I want to give credit where credit is due for them confronting the arrangement and that the record straight yet. I think that's a topic I love to dive more into the future because you think of that is something that's a possibility with the way the Internet works in some people may be concerned with your kind of government overreach. But when there are these type of things.
I will just what's one of the websites and I have for you.com which is a there English-language state media says this website has been seized and has the DOJ seal and a US Department of Congress commerce the alliances the domain has been seized by United states government accordance with the seizure warrant issued has a bunch of information on it.
That's the first thing we want to know, that could even happen. Please, you should keep aware that but specifically others are glad that you can confirm that this is a step in the right direction because I think we are always a little concerned with that. But I also don't know people understand the complexity of the Internet. How much of it is being controlled through our country and that's always been at a point of discussion we had here, which is where does I can wear these these big domain registered. Where do they live where they housed and who has control over the world clear that the American government at least has some oversight into what's going on all the child will confide in the world that are closely related to the things that initiate these are the very inexpensive tools that our adversaries are using to undermine the United States and our Republic is an Arabian control sight of the fact that we now have prevented that from spreading propaganda is a good thing I'm sleep. Thank you, Sec. Pompeo against the new pieces available on our website should read all of just what all of our great authors and writers that is NACLJ.org check out what we're going there this new content posted every day, not just to show the shows all stories is now new options only really assumed them to listen to these blogs were coming up with a lot of new ways to get this content to you is easy, adjustable shareable way. We appreciate all the support back for second half hour to I appreciate you guys. That unit will be right back is 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 the right to life, we've 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 are personally publication includes all major ACLJ were fighting for the rights of pro-life activists ramifications. 40 years later, when Obama care means to discover many ways your membership is empowering the right question mission life today online/challenges facing Americans is freedom sort of constitutional rights are under attack more important than ever to stay with the American Center for Law and Justice on the frontlines injecting your freedoms and rights in court in Congress and in the public and have an exceptional track record of success.
But here's the bottom line we could not do her work without your support, we remain committed to protecting your religious and constitutional freedoms then remains our top priority, especially now during these challenging times. The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side, you're already a member.
Well, this is the perfect time to stand with us ACLJ God will where you can learn more about her life changing, member today NACLJ Washington DC will have studio just got done with Sec. Pompeo later in the show be joined by West Smith.
So we a lot of content coming up the main topic or talk about right now is filibuster from last night, specifically on the voting rights act and we gone through some of the details what was in there while you posted. And a lot of people post it love it.
Some of the federal government in control of every bit of your life, sometimes with the states to have some control maybe smoke your own independence and it gets lumped in with these titles that sound kind of cute kinda silly began early in sweeter so the doctor can't vote against but it is done. Some ways to mess with your head about sides to really try to use these words make you talk.
Of course you could oppose that will we you can oppose it because there are real issues that are a baby or take everything at face value here. One of the bane talking points that really need to go through and this is the real possibility that a seismic shift from the left may not happen because of things like this being blocked in the ability to still block it.
As of now obsolete elections, change things happen really not that far away from another shift again, but for now things are are are okay and can be stopped, and in this it comes from a lot of the big line of issues or talk about why that we have. There's a summit today about guns accuracy with that looks like there's is the Odyssey. All of the different things from the border and immigration reform on sickness, voting rights, and even stuff like the minimum wage for that talk about a lot. I think the offering federally the minimum wage to $15 a believes what right what is wanted. Some states have $50 minimum wage is already some doubt this would be a federal move out which concerns a lot of business owners I think is fast food is Artie Snively said hey if you do this we got McDonald's. I really have the automated system for you not to be talking anybody I really pull it up and talking to a an automatic and auto response and were not, there's really trusted Artie have things like that have to have a robot waiter one last week I was in the unfailing vacation was and I have been what it is I've been there one last week. I tick tock pickpocketing is true restaurant that went viral because their food. The food was delicious because their staff is robots and I mean that actually robots. These robots that that are automated, so there is a person a real human being to greet you at the door.
You don't really interact with another human need to eat. He types in what table to go to that you follow the robot robot lead you to the table has a cute little face. It's a fun kids love it and it takes you to your table. You sit down.
Then another robot comes out almost looks like a tray cart and has all of your food on the robots can sing happy birthday they they do all of these different days and they have their own version of happy birthday or is it generic after the normal happy birthday that were accustomed to. It is interesting to see a little research on this because a single well this is this is is is cool I see why were all going in place, a three hour wait because people always want to be seated and served by these friendly robots. I love that I thought was great.
Again viral sensation in a strip mall outside of Orlando. None of this early in like a business is at a high-end restaurant so I looked in the research because I posted about this and I said hey, this is what happens. This is this is clearly were going to federal minimum-wage provincially goes up to $15 or it comes not up there is no way for businesses to save this foregoing someone responding well at the restaurant can afford plates its customers or its staff. The settlement $50.
Therefore, these robots well into the low dive one of those robots cost about $7000.
The hiring once cost about $10,000 so over the course of your life. Imagine efficiency because how how often these things work. 24 hour today on the battery life insurance pretty good. They re-dock themselves. This is the tip of the iceberg automation this coming. I'm not necessarily single against it. Terms of technology moving forward right but is become a necessity. It's going to become a necessity for a lot of these businesses, but because of something like last night what happened with the filibuster.
Maybe we won't see that those sweeping changes happen. We know could be a detriment to our workforce in our society.
And a lot of these policies whether it be green new deal, whether it be a federal takeover of the elections whether be $15 minimum wage. It it's all coming from the far left of the party of the Democrats. It's not like these are just issues that the Republicans are are blocking the block.
I actually thought it was interesting to see 50 Republicans stand together last night. More so than it be even not even a couple breaking off the Democrats always have a good handle on their caucus. Wow, I feel like the Republicans are the ones that typically have people breaking off.
It's sometimes a broader tent party where there is more nuanced to views within the Republican Party, but the fact that you had all 50 and you're going to continue to see. I feel like 50 saying no were not moving forward on this because the Democrats aren't wanting to budge an inch and you look back to just last year, when you had five release bills coded stimulus relief bills that passed bipartisan and then the one this year because it had so much of the far left agenda and it and no compromise. They had to use budget reconciliation to get around the filibuster because they were at work willing to work across the aisle in the Senate. That's part of the problem and why it's emboldening Republicans to stand up against it and I think it it's a good check on the far left agenda and not having these federal takeovers of so much of the government in the country in the states and all of this am asking that why you think the Republicans stood strong on this when historically at least there's been some work we we we always hope for bipartisanship, but sometimes stands are made. Yeah, I really agree with Will on this and I talked about this before but I think the posture of partisan legislating was sort of the stage was set for it during that Kobe stimulus debate.
Any like will said there were five bipartisan bills last year. There could've been a sick slogan. There was an appetite. There were 20 Republicans willing to work with Democrats to pass another one and I would tell you, there were plenty Republicans who wanted an infrastructure bill, there plenty of Republicans today Logan that want to pass an infrastructure bill but Sen. Schumer has decided that he would rather put forward bills with his wish list.
I don't think that's an unfair way to characterize it and by the way, loving you been talking about how they titled these things the for the people Act II can be against that wall if if the bill was actually about election integrity and securing the election. I think you would have bipartisan support for that and that the last two election cycles Logan the losing side has felt like there were flaws in the election structure, so if there were ways to shore that up. I think there would be a bipartisan support. But to answer your question directly. I think the reason there were no cracks inside the Republican conference is because if you look through this 887 page bill. It's not an election integrity bill. It is truly a federal takeover of elections and people just don't want Washington DC making those decisions for one simple reason. Logan they don't believe they would do a good job at it and so therefore they oppose it.
We got another half-hour of secular, not we have less mythical estimates to be joining us will be diving in on this topic on Iran and on many other topics and I would hear from you. What's important to you right now. 1-800-684-3110 one my favorite things will right now is been reading all the comments on YouTube specifically related to robots serving people in restaurant that I will say that some will plug myself right here on Instagram, Instagram, Instagram.com/Logan Sekulow search Logan Sekulow public you can see a picture with me and peanut you see that it's a thick search Logan Sekulow to find me there. Also check out the great work Macy email@example.com get amazing content. Each and every day falls on all social media platforms ACLJ Jay Sekulow towards IKEA Logan Sekulow give us a call 1-800-684-3110, 100-684-3110 ACLJ is been on the frontline protecting your freedoms and rights in court in Congress and in the public arena. The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side. If you're already a member thinking. If you're not well this is the perfect time to stand with us, ACLJ.org, where you can learn more about our life-changing work, member today ACLJ live Washington DC secular secular secular give the slogan joining the got will hate we've got a bit Washington DC we're doing now what Smith here in the studio and really discuss a lot of topics. I whether that is the filibuster without happening in Iran will also be taking phone calls at 1-800-684-3110 I will go ahead really quickly and take a phone call. Kelly is calling the hole about half an hour.
Kelly, I apologize busy half-hour but go ahead, you're on the wall. I like hear the bill in the middle of the night Memorial day about company kingship, but I'm wondering if the Democrats in Congress have another way to push that voter right I put" bill and use the patient to ram it through a sense of what is the process the next steps as they say, we heard Schumer say this is the end of this bill.
We are there other methods for us to get there. This doesn't necessarily kill the bill in general. This actually gives it a chance that you said is a little breathing room integrate question from Kelly Logan. I love winter listeners I get into the parliamentary procedure in the United States Senate. I kinda geek out on that as well. The look, the reconciliation process and Kelly's talking about that's the process that they used to pass the covert stimulus bill, it only requires 50 votes plus the tie-breaking vote of the vice President to get something through the Logan eyes. We talked about on the show before it has to be at least somewhat budgetary in nature. To accomplish it in the most of the provisions inside this piece of legislation would not meet that threshold, the Senate parliamentarian would not allow them to move that way.
So as it stands now, the reconciliation process is probably not an option for this bill but what they could do Logan and what we've been talking about during this broadcast they could change the rules and President of the United States Senate to not allow a filibuster to to eliminate or at least change the cloture rule and not require a super majority to indoor begin debate on a measure if they were to do that Logan if center mansion and center cinema and the others that have expressed concern would change their mind on that, then they could move something with 50 votes and a vote of the vice President. And that's why today in the new cycle you're not hearing as much about S1 your hearing about eliminating the filibuster and that's where they were talking about here is what is Ray suggesting that Joe mentioned NLS cinema are names that we hear probably more then any Sen. in general about both centers and occasionally hear about specific ones that are maybe a little more boisterous, a little bit louder, you hear them on the committee chair something out about it comes to these topics. It's always down to Joe mansion and now here's cinema that's a good thing because you can say hey these people actually are voting with a conscious not to say with their party. But then we see what happens with these two situations I think you brought up well. It's often like I feel like with elections in the print states that are like on the edge or maybe we can get Pennsylvania this time.
And then, like, well, maybe that was lost, right well and one other thing that your name on this is a senator's name that you may not know as well as some of those others, but Elizabeth will Jeff Merk who was one of the original sponsors of this in the Senate says that the next step is to continue to work the dialogue between the 50 senators and evaluate the next approach.
I don't think he's talking about the 50 Republican senators and what is cause for concern is that when you are only focusing inside your own party instead of looking to across the aisle.
That means that they're just going to double down on what failed last night and try to find a way to get forward instead of what were talking about maybe you don't federalize the elections and take over.
Maybe you strengthen the Federal election commission and them something like that assisted discussion point where I can talk it out let's hear from Chuck Schumer okay right on time. Set it up and make y'all call in, but I can't do it. Ran on time. Give me a call one 800 684 30 went and guess what, he's not a fan of the filibuster is not afraid of this happened he said publican party has now signed the personal platform.
The public buys voter suppression. Yes, that's exactly right. One 800 684 31 to be a backward time or less myth specifically about not only this, but what's happening in Iran military. Everything really get into really go deep, and I will hear from you 100 684-3110 will be right back. The challenges facing Americans as time went on freedoms for constitutional rights are under attack more important than ever to stay with the American Center for Law and Justice on the frontlines projecting your freedoms defending your rights in court in Congress and in the public arena and we have an exceptional track record of success.
But here's the bottom line we could not do more work without your support, we remain committed to protecting your religious and constitutional freedoms than remains our top priority, especially now during these challenging times. The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side, you're already a member. Thank you. Well, this is the perfect time to stand with us ACLJ God will where you can learn more about her life changing, member today ACLJ only one. A society can agree that the most vulnerable in voice. 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 will show you how you are personally publication includes all major ACLJ were fighting for the rights of pro-life activists ramifications. 40 years later, planned parenthood's role in the Obama care means to discover many ways your membership is empowering the right question for mission life today online/social video put together by a great video team in the college may just just feel so disingenuous when you hear the statement that came out from Pres. Biden from the administration have a sense that I believe the statement itself. Well, I would get them pulled up, but specifically say in general how this is just the fact this is just voter suppression again that they are voting for phone. How dare they, and comes with we just know that this is just one of those things.
It is just not real it's it's been because they know the American people. Sadly, a lot of them are not going to. You will yet It really seems like there voting for it was the statement that was a press statement so put out not audio but from the President Joe Biden says it was the suppression of a bill to end voter suppression another attack on voting rights. That is sadly not unprecedented.
You know you were talking earlier about how the Department of Justice has taken over a couple of Iranian websites because they're presenting this information.
I say this very tongue-in-cheek. Perhaps they should take over the White House website and Chuck Schumer's as well about this information. This bill was never about voting rights.
What I found there there so much disinformation in disingenuous going around on this issue, but more the things I found very interesting and troubling was that yesterday before the boat was taken.
Pres. Biden tied this so-called voting rights act to foreign policy and said that the world was watching to see whether or not democracy works in America and in fact, that propose legislation is what corrupt dictators and single party political countries to is the reason we send election observers to another country is because they run their elections like this legislation would have suggested that we run our elections and so to say that the world is watching. I mean, it is really so disingenuous they're actually attempting if you look at the details of HR one and S1. There attempting to make our voting system much like the other countries that were criticized because of how they they run the writing system is just unbelievable. It really is what you also brought up that he he tied foreign policy. The world is watching.
There was an interesting quote from an nonprofit group that was in one of these articles we read in our briefing this morning. This is from Ellen scales and she's the communications director for the sunrise move movement, which is a climate change organization trying to push for legislation on climate change and things of that nature. Environmental, but her quote in here is that Biden and Harris must use their bully pulpit in full force. They must realize that voter suppression is just as existential a threat as climate change, because tackling one is inextricably a bolt with the other. So the far left is is seeing them there for the people act as just that. As the gateway to every other WishList policy and there even recruiting the climate change organization which is fine to have you think. In an article about green new dealer summit that you'd be quoting but quoting this communications director. In an article about the failure of the bill on the for the people act and the filibuster. That's who they go to. That's mind-boggling to me absolutely let's go to Barbara Scully, Pennsylvania with a specific question related as Barbara there right right federal government. Well Barbara you know this, they don't really care about the Constitution would start their thoughts start, we just not what we just can assume which of the Constitution and our baseline lease yet because it is very very strictly terms of what they care about whether it's in the Constitution. Thank all puppets do you hear and say what is that of process look like I'm not as versed in those specific laws, but when it comes to making this sweeping change. Is it just as simple as going through in passing this insane Hilario offers what they did pretty well and I think I did not caring about with consultations, as is essentially what we have here below 2001 layer deeper. Barbara talking about article 1, section 4, which says the times, places and manner of holding elections for Senators and Representatives shall be prescribed in each state by the legislature thereof. Yet now the plug and I all genders can preempt the argument. You can hear from the other side there to latch onto the next clause that says Congress can make laws that alter make or alter such written regulations, but Logan if you look at what this bill is it says that the federal government gets to set how voters are registered where they go to register how district or line are drawn when they can. Early about how long they can early about whether or not they can use provisional ballots whether they can do mailing does that sound like they're altering or does that sound like they're prescribing. I think it's pretty clear. This is the federal government prescribing the way that elections are held in article 1, section 4 clearly says that is the state's duty and authority to set. Let's also take some calls and we get availability 100-684-3110 but one thing I wanted to play earlier and I ran out of time was from this structure.
Chuck Schumer address this, we said earlier, the Democrats were raging literally dive deeper than what that meant. Why were they so upset. We discussed a bit upset because really what they know now is that likely not just this because of the filibuster because the current situation likely I could get anything past. Let's hear from Sen. Chuck Schumer. That is a bite to eat, Senate Republicans have signed their names in the ledger of history along Donna alongside Donald Trump the big lie and voter suppression to their enduring disgrace.
This vote. I'm ashamed to say is further evidence that voter suppression has become part of the official platform of the Republican Party. I saw you again. Same kind of feeling I have, which is to get this just feels like you just really propaganda. Go ahead. Yeah, it really is you and basically there the way they approach this and so many other issues is if the Constitution is a problem, go around it.
If the rules or problem and change the rules. This is about power and do you really want that much power in the federal government thing was talking about article 1 section for the Constitution. You go back and look in the 237, 38 years since the Constitution was ratified. The reason they put that particular article in the Constitution was. They felt like that the people needed no close representation on major matters in the government. What's what we are really you know of a representative democracy Democratic Republic were not a true democracy we sent representatives to vote for us. But the reason the Constitution said the state's notional control of the time, place and manner of voting is because when you elect your representatives to Congress. That's one level above where you are in and send it even more so, but with your state legislature. You can ask. You know those people you can interact with those people in many states like my home state of Georgia. They actually delegate much of the authority and elections down to the county level so that the people actually have input into elections and when you're talking about a representative democracy like this is very very important that the people's voice be considered that the people's voice be heard as to what this legislation does. It takes it away from the state which takes it away from the counties which basically takes it away from the people and this, the federal government sank trust us.
We know what's best for you. Does anyone in their right mind really believe that, generally speaking, that the federal government should be that involved and in your election process and that they know what's best for you.
Absolutely incredible site and to that point as well of the Secretary of State of New Hampshire as a Democrat Secretary of State Gardner. He has been voicing his concerns about that very bill for those reasons because he says that the bill will make their state constitution, null and void because what and New Hampshire.
One of the first states of the union it it's not like New Hampshire has any time at Alaska in a long history proud is only 60 Constitution enshrines how they conduct their elections. It's not even just later law. It's when one of their founding documents, which is one of the nation's founding documents and he's concerned about it because it says it takes away the things we can and can't do under our Constitution when it comes to elections and denies the people the right. They have under their own state constitution.
So when they also point to look at the Democrats are unified here. We voted 50 in the Senate all Democrat senators voted for this, they're ignoring some state officials that are concerned about what this would do to their own states. Rules and laws in place quick clip before we go to the final segment is of the show today again I would hear from you is usually the last time I like take as many phone calls I can severely comment on this or any other really topic that's related to the work we do will take some calls 100-684-3110 but hears from Andrea Mitchell. This just happened on MSNBC. Very few times you agree with this person but maybe will now based on the, we just said before, let's take a lesson that will explain after that objection to best care centers mansion & I am tired of talking about this dimensionless and we have got to do what we can to bring people together the different sides were both sick of hearing about the same two people that come up in every conversation you try to go for you know it's like the popular person on the way.
He's saying we gotta do what we can to bring people together what the filibuster is the conversation point with very satisfied. But he said he didn't recognize the voice. I didn't say that was obviously Bernie Sanders, but he's tired of hearing and talking of how mansion start talking about cinema as well. We got a lot going up 100 684 31 to 100-684-3110, the couple is still open.
The next only one.

What 100 684 31 to your phone call I want to hear from you. Telephones light up 1-800-684-3110 let's go first. Owen, who is either in Washington state or is in Washington state when you're in much that you're there. Thank you so much for taking the call and thank you for what you got to awning immigrants from popular and so proud to be in this country and very grateful for what you got to and I'm just so happy that the Republicans filibuster didn't stop it because I know that my country. The Democratic country and everything is run from the federal level, which takes all rights as citizens, but in America we have separation of powers and estate to have the rights to make their own laws would create a check on the federal government.
Am so grateful for you God getting the word out. Thank you so much appreciate the Commonwealth and that to his point is well. That's why one the comments of the secretary of state of New Hampshire were so important as well that you can look at all the terms they use calling it the voting rights act of the for the people act and it's really easy to get caught up in those if you only hear what the Democrats talking points are, but we know for a fact that it's not the things that they call it, it's almost Orwellian when they say it's the for the people I because it's against the people act in many ways and then they also push back that states are making their own laws are there trying to suppress the vote. That's the point is, what cannot be voted right right so laterally and then mansion's compromise, which would not is not in what they voted on.
But what his compromise was is that there would be a federal voter ID regulation, but that could be a water bill so probably the least secure form of saying there's a voter ID. It's just lip service to people. That's not what is an ID you can print out a water bill like it that the fact that they would try to say that's a compromise point and fans brought this point up many times as well. It's one thing for the states to have different types of voter ID requirements, but when the person who's in charge of that is the federal government mandating it changing the rules. All those things that takes the power away from the states again, we are coming out of it and we are coming out of an election that was very controversial that had a lot of issues so there are pushes and wants to see some reform in the way things work.
We had days and days of delays Georgia weeks and weeks and weeks of delays all the problems that happened. I understand the bear to be blunt, we've got to figure this out. However, that's not even really address any of the those issues right has nothing to do with it would take the things that we saw as problems with the 2020 election and make them federal law and say okay we saw Pennsylvania and Georgia and the states had issues with everyone. Do it that way.
The mailing issue right generally up there so much lying is not just disinformation's actual lies about some of the states that have passed new voter loss there trying to fix doubt in our federal election system there trying to fix voter fraud and you go back and you look at the actual legislation that was passed by a number of states including including Georgia. It is not voter suppression.
It actually in Georgia. They increased the time and days and hours that you can vote.
They said we can't bring water or food and give it to people in line. You can bring your own water and the End of voter the people who run the voting precincts can give you water you just to run for office.
You can't run a Brightwater Kantian corruption look at the details. The actual details of these of these voter legislations that were passed in the states they actually protect and clean up the motor system. I haven't seen one piece of it that was actual voter suppression and yet that's what you're hearing all the time. One other quick thing. I got say about Sen. Mancini played that quote from Bernie Sanders yesterday to give you an idea of the left and how aggressive they are.
They have an agenda in this issue is not going away. The whole voting rights thing in this HR one it is is going to be debated. Again, I guarantee you, but yesterday I left leaning journalists actually complained about Sen. mansion said that if he would be the 50th vote in the filibuster and then the vice President come in and they would end the filibuster.
He could have great power and he is forsaking his power in the name of. She said bipartisanship and what his constituents want that somehow is a bad thing to do to represent your in Los Angeles. Our hearts and when he could have power instead of them love and it is about power and when you read that statement also yeah course, going over 500 per bipartisanship and actually voted for his constituents, not just voting its party lines.
That's not how it works.
And as we know times flip things change Republican Democrat who becomes a power. It moves continually. I they were about to say were probably 10 years away five years away from a massive shift again as you see I was popular music you to Tom McDonald you. These guys are coming out a fully independent more conservative style voices or commit fiber with kids that are 16 and 17. Right now, so guess what, millennial sorry about 10 years and become one of you but 10 years with the next generation. Now the next original and after you sure that old now generate to generation are covered. It's going to flip back and they don't ever care about what this could mean for them.
That's of the filibuster will happen two years of the just five years of the chip well and that's part of what the argument of people like Sen. Cinema are. It's not necessarily that she wants a ton of input from the Republicans. It's that hey we have to think forward and if you say the house changes or the Senate changes then what happens with the stuff we don't want going for you know we want to have input when we're not the majority party, but it's interesting because now people like Sen. Elizabeth Warren are. That's her entire point for ending the filibuster is saying right next time if Mitch McConnell is the leader of the Senate again. He's gonna get rid of the filibuster better bet he's going to do is a quote he was the Majority Leader for this last election. Just because the rate of this but she's trying to actually make the case for ending the filibuster thing that Mitch McConnell is going to do it.
Let's take a final call Clark and Ohio you are there.
Yeah, I have been wondering this for a number of months. I don't know who else I could talk about the fact that the enemy take out the speakerphone and echo a car, then we got really into minutes left.
Okay you will love the fact that once in office and they take in the office to uphold the Constitution and defendant against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and in the just the opposite. Why is that not ground for removal from office. Sadly, this is the system we are in right now well and like a lot of friends constituents don't feel that life well and also the left which is to believe in living Constitution that it's fluid that it things change without even needing to amended so they probably believed to some degree that they are defending their version of the Constitution just not the text that was written down by the founders. But this living breathing document.
One of the government unless they really are. That left I appreciate it data brother they'll be back in the next day or so and take elastic and thank you Sec. Pompeii have come and will course.
