Does the house passes power grab by strange human form. Now it's fully paid for fully fully increase the deficit you want to hear from you, call 1-800-684-3110 say no CBO for you wanted to hold them accountable couldn't cost money. You got the CBO for cost hundred billion dollars.
The first by now, your host Jordan secular part. She stood up during this boat house for the bill back better plan to trillion dollar spending bill.
I would CBO report did come back and so you know this is not revenue neutral by any means.
It's costing you nearly $900 billion in its first five years because of all the spending here. Some of that's pretty. We talked about $80 billion to the IRS to hire 87,000 new enforcement agents that we did get a victory out of this. The house if there was anyplace they were impressed with this language in the house where they had the most support for Bill back better.
It was a partyline vote will talk about The sit next. What did not make it in there is that $600 or that $10,000 in aggregate number that would allow the IRS to get your bank account that we've Artie said if if they try to do this as they talked about before you play that by later if they try to do this some kind of regulation. What we believe. That's a challenge that we will fight it because that would be changing the law which you cannot change the law, the regulatory process what's on the wall there's a lot of problems with this bill were to get into including 87,000 new IRS agents for an agency that still not fixed but let's be split clear that where the victory is and what about the private because of the regulatory issue, but the issue we were concerned about that we raise. I testify before a congressional hearing was this $600 a month and then became you know $800 a month and then $10,000 over the course of the year ability for the IRS to have your bank spotting you know for the IRS on your transactions and that is out of this legislation. It's out of the legislation.
Janet's big window may look even in the midst of very problematic legislation. It's it's so important to dig in on the weeds on the most problematic provisions look because of the American people standing up and say we will not tolerate this they had to pull it out of the bill J, I think there's can be an opportunity United States Senate to also go after some that overall funding increase. The Jordan talked about. I know Sen. mansion. Sen. Cinema are very concerned about those provisions, it did move out of the house largely on a partyline vote. Only Jared Goldman. He was the only Democrat to vote against the piece of legislation. But you're right Jamie that IRS snooping provision had it ended up in the house version originally passed.
I think it would've been very difficult to remove.
So even others can be challenges going forward. Getting that most problematic provision out of the house bill that's really a huge win in the midst of a trying night here. This, again, folks. Just understand I has passed the House of Representatives. This is got a major uphill challenge in the significance of this is this fight is not over. It's actually far from over. Because we are sinners on the record of the Democrat party who said that are going for this well and house moderates during the excuse that they said they're waiting on the CBO score. They didn't want to cost anything they wanted to be read revenue neutral during the CBO scores came back to cost way more than the house said it would be were doing was nowhere close to revenue neutral and yet all of them essentially held hands and voted for it anyway. Jordan Joe mansions knocking to do that now he may vote for something in the end, but he's gonna vote for a bill if he does this dramatically different than this one. And look, our listeners are smart group of people they know what happens if the Senate passes a different build in the house does the house would have to look at it again.
Georgia look we got a long way to go on this.
Once you divide up the progressive divide up the moderates of tears were the pressure point mansions and cinemas of the U.S. Senate right now.
I will take them standing up to at least a stand said make major changes to this and send it back to the house to see if they can actually get their act together again when it's not just there agreed to deal with list we write back on secular take your calls 160 3110 River matching challenge month of November every day is double batch those donations the entire month.

A society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice. Is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life, we've created a free publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn will show you how you personally. Publication includes all major ACLJ fighting for the rights of pro-life activist ramifications 40 Years Later St. what Obama care means many ways your membership is powering the right mission in life today online/your photos to what hundred 68 3110 so go back better get past it. The U.S. House surprise, there was actually the moderates and the progressives were able to come together.
I stayed said the moderates had their excuse for what they were going to vote for. And they didn't mind the fact that it's can actually cost the lives of dollars. After they got the CBO report.
That's what they were holding out for, but now it goes to a tougher place. That's the 50-50 divided U.S. Senate and it's not just one Democrat Sen. but to who've expressed a lot of concern about the amount of spending here the inflation going on in our country right now and whether this is the best way to tackle that like for instance is the green new deal.
The best way to tackle the out-of-control gas prices at the pump right now instead of even Chuck Schumer supports utilizing the strategic petroleum reserves and that what I've heard from people oil gas issues that would even necessarily be necessary if they were just allowed to deliver the oil to keep to keep pumping at a level where the by the ministration was trying to kill that instrument. We were we were totally independent energy independent.
We realize this year that we were totally energy and was a 2000 $0.12 a gallon. Whatever it was, only now it's midnight. I was driving somewhere may been towards North Carolina. I think it made was was some was for four dollars.
Yeah that what we have to set the taxes but look mean this is all part and parcel of what that the ACL tear office of government is good data focus on the opposite gummy bears by the when the next segment will be talking about a case for filing a polite matter that's been filed today so a lot going on record L joining us in the back half, but then I think it's important for people understand that we all know that one provision that we fought so hard to keep out we've had a good success by the way, I need to say this, then, was very engaged in on that issue is. Imagine all these issues, but this one we particularly God took an interest in because we we of any institution would know about potential abuse from the Internal Revenue Service as we handle those cases and then I did that hearing.
I'll never forget that was in the next room to the studio. We did by Zumba Ways and Means, I believe, and then I came in and gave a report from here was amazing. The technology that everybody, our team was able to put together but what was so great about that was got attention to an issue that would've impacted literally every American yet why we paid so much attention to this day was can impact the lives of literally every American and K Democrats were never to call AAA and official hearing on this and what the minority members of the Ways and Means committee did as they got with UNICEF luckless bring attention to this matter. Maybe we can get it stripped out of this bill that there can be a lot of other things in this bill.
You need to be focused on the we've got to get this one out because otherwise will be getting authority to an agency like the IRS, who we know will target conservatives who we know will target Christians, we gotta make sure that scrubbed. I'm sure that was a very full day on your NJ but look at the end of the day. It was successful. That provision came out and Outlook and Jordan alluded to this. They were trying to renegotiate this whole package between House Democrats and Senate Democrats J that they failed to do that and at the end he actually shoved a bunch of things into this bill that I can make it harder to pass the Senate things that Sen. mansion Center cinema specifically opposed to working to see how that all plays out. There's gonna be a number of policy debates, spending taxes, the Hyde amendment also been have to survive some budgetary rules but J you have to take these things on one step at a time. We got a big win on that there can be more ahead so stay tuned, but it was interesting there.
The house Democrats themselves had to get over internal fighting in order to get their bill passed because for a lot of them.
This wasn't enough so I mean right what they wanted one another trillion 25 trillion that I think outliving to this request for our Facebook audience. I know that most you listen to radio and Sirius XM are those who watch the broadcast through different channels.
Facebook had little delay through their server was that your computer wasn't our computers is through their server. It's up now at the Jay Sekulow page on Facebook so we encourage you if that's where you usually watch if you're watching there. Now I help us get the numbers up there because we had a delay start sharing the broadcast with your friends and family I we got a great update coming up in the next segment about a pro-life case were working on Rick Grenell joining us in the second half hour on some of these foreign policy discussions, especially related to China the upcoming Olympics. There are the ongoing genocide there even a story that really it just shows the strength of China, even to US companies. This what you just don't miss the show today as we get through all of these different issues I purchased sharing a blog with your friends and family happy talk about the loss of the next segment with Frank Bennett from our team let me play this for you so reporter asked about the CBL. You said you know the American people. He wanted scored at zero. It is not supported zero take a listen by diet by a Republican flight American public when they said plan cost zero dollars. Linda seen at least $160 billion to content what the Republicans say is a neat stack that you predicated a question on the understand by tapping okay that was. We just talked about wasn't some Republic.
In fact, it's the Congressional Budget Office, and it was moderate Democrats say they are waiting for that score. During there are a bunch of sophisticated outfits that put out scores on this guest with the lowest of the most conservative score and this is the Congressional Budget Office amino the other scores are somewhere between 4 trillion and 5 trillion for actual cost because they don't believe the federal government when they say were in a sunset these programs after five years. Of course they're not in a sunset and they never do. So the real causes can be more than $4 trillion but you know Jordan. What is Speaker Pelosi can essay her member said we want to wait on the CBO score it's gotta be a deficit neutral so we can spend a whole bunch of money as long as we collect a lot of taxes from the American people to pay for which by the way, I think that's a double whammy. Not one good thing and one bad thing, but the score came back Jordan and it said what Republican said it's good to be hugely expensive.
It's good to be high taxation and the third whammy it's can add to the deficit. The CBO agreed and her members voted for anyway so you know I don't feel sorry in the lease for Speaker Pelosi but at the same time there was a way that she could answer that question and you can put her in a good light. This is again when she expressed again for the speeches. Take a listen by eight used to hold the record for the longest course how you feel about that being broken and he implanted… Talk about.
They think that you realize where the press review.
What examples of how praising the press is to the far left and I'd say Pelosi's crossed over there with us to try to dial spending that they laugh about four speech numbers when they're talking about spending 2 trillion more dollars in time there is rapid inflation problems with our entire infrastructure when it comes to the supply chain for Christmas.
He immediately got really got no answers for you as well knives that offer short-term solution and then on top of all of that. You don't do just that inflation not-30 inflation rate right now is the highest living descendent 30 years. Joe binds numbers are 36 present in the 30s and approval. Vascular political force.
I could hear fab.
It is very rare to see a present United States drop into that mid-30s number yeah and Jordan.
It was all you know. Historically, it's always problematic for a sitting President, especially when they control both chambers heading into an intern to guess what, with inflation going through the word roof and and Democrats in Washington DC only offering one solution and Jordan it's one it's contrived inflation even higher. Put the squeeze on family budgets even more. I suspect that number from Pres. Biden is gonna go down not up and turn one other thing like I just have to respond to Speaker Pelosi chuckling what she can have a different view on this. This is not funny. I mean, the CBO score came out late afternoon if she wanted to put the foot of the vote in the floor to spend what is coming north of $4 trillion in just a few hours later. So you had the house version of the filibuster leader McCarthy speaking for 8 1/2 hours but she can disagree with leader McCarthy Jordan, but it's not funny and it's the American people that are to pay the price $550 billion for climate change through incentives and tax breaks half $1 trillion.
In addition to what's already in the budget. This is the new one because they wanted more money for that employers are having enough problems getting employees so now let's have mandatory four weeks of paid family and medical leave now. A lot of companies do that anyways voluntarily.
Why does the federal government to start mandating. This goes back to the conversation we had yesterday so they can get what they wanted but they still have been able to socially engineer lease in the House of Representatives, their view of where this should go out where the country should go but they're doing this and this is also ironic to render doing this with 36% approval rating by Job. This is the classic move that you could say that by one they have to do this to to placate their face, which is around that should be higher than 36% in against the base doesn't like a lot of what to do little things extreme enough and they don't like what's good happy to send it to this, which is likely it's because overpass or its counterpart taken apart and goes back to Houston.
The war begins in. They are falling into that direct trap of pushing pushing legislation. The American people don't want that some people in their own party. Don't even want this happened to Pres. Obama and VP Biden should remember what happens when you do this for midterm elections. This states that become the race is that going to play all over the country.
We were not just I got purple states he wore it everywhere only one.
A society can agree the most vulnerable. Is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life. We created a free powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn is called mission will show you how you personally. Publication includes a look at all major ACLJ were fighting for the rights of pro-life activist ramifications 40 years later, when Obama care means many ways your membership is powering the right question mission in life today online/the American Center for Law and were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad.
Whether it's defending religious freedom. Protecting those covering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy fighting to protect life reports and in Congress. ACLJ would not be able to do any of this without your support for that. We are grateful.
Now there's an opportunity for you to help way time you can participate in the ACLJ's matching challenge for every dollar you donate $10 gift comes 20 $50 gift becomes 100. This is time for the ACLJ. The work we simply would not occur without your generous matching challenge make a difference in protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms most important to you today online okay here we told you about the city of Louisville to crack down on pro-life sidewalk counselors tried to use covert covert pandemic is covered and then that that did not ultimately go into law the past that the new city Council, which is a different political balance, took up the offer.
So measure again this year. This year, version of the ordinance makes no mention of the public health emergency. It just it was about alleged history of blocking, obstructing, harassing, healthcare facilities, well we at the ACLJ represent those sidewalk counselors. I see your counsel, Frank Manion joining us now because we have filed a lawsuit in federal court or it in Kentucky and friend that this is again to discuss his quarterly seal Johor ACLJ go, but you thought of the Supreme Court right here fighting the District Court not just was in the Salyers is recapturing come on here you know we were just talking about something on the national level were we work hard to get a piece of legislation in the in the Democratic house modified so that it would take out the ability of the IRS to spy on you knowing and get access to every Americans records that more than $800 in transactions initially was $600 in a single transaction.
We got that out. We got a box with the deregulatory but also the same time were doing that. We got our lawyers, like our senior counsel Frank Manion and his team filing federal case in the Western District of Kentucky on an issue that's front and center for the ACLJ and that is pro-life counseling outside of abortion clinics. Frank tells about the case for a field day work you argued with the Supreme Court. One of those Hill versus Colorado the cities and towns across the country are still focusing on even though in 2014 the McCullen versus Coakley case unanimous court, including UL RPG and Soto Mayor place sidewalk counseling by pro-lifers at the top of the hierarchy of free speech right down a buffer zone ordinance in Massachusetts, and most importantly in the context completely ignored Hill versus Colorado work we overrule it, but essentially they said the case doesn't have any impact or any effect on what were doing here what happening at local governments like Louisville like in Englewood, New Jersey were getting ready for trial next year you ignored the McCullen case and in our case against Louisville were calling to account think you just can't do that if you've got people breaking the law, obstructing, hindering, assaulting, harassing, go after them easily capable of doing. You don't shut down part of the traditional public forum, peaceful sidewalk counselors so you mentioned working on your Frank that I went to the Supreme Court twice on this and then the third case came out and and there's probably a series about for these cases involving these buffer zones with the floating buffer zone.
Remember that one and and then you had the bike wherever anybody when you click talk to them. You can animate this literature so here's the question I know what our audience is saying goodness you you all argue this of the Supreme Court then were something case that even affirmed even more.
You still have to go back to the District Court to enforce what the Supreme Court already said is the law of the land happening. Local governments giving into vociferous, well-funded, influential pro-abortion where they are and we saw in Englewood, New Jersey, and were singing here in Louisville, Kentucky, and are just ignoring what the Supreme Court said McCullen. It's just amazingly shake her head Supreme Court decision in abortion case that went our way.
That has never ever happened, so they could pretend it didn't happen and they go back to the Hill case and other cases that we easily distinguished and that's why were hopeful that either were going to get our pulmonary injunction file that motion today to get this up to the Sixth Circuit and we got one going up the Third Circuit to know where I see this Dragon. This is a chance for you to get back to the Supreme Court finally have to drive a stake in the heart of the constitutional goal that is ill versus Colorado for 30 years later Frank thing I'm 65, is like coming back around and I have been arguing these cases, I now longer since 1985 and you are doing is right back in the 80s. So if my math is correct, what is that 37 years. Think about we look the same. Frequently as I thought it was worth pointing out was that when we did with last year when this failed they were trying to literally doing this when Louisville was experiencing massive protests after the verdict was Adriana Taylor and admit at the same time.
This is how aggressive this pro-abortion movement is debt-free at frankly just shows that at the same time that was going on like the streets were not being able to be under control. They were trying to get through this buffer zone you are going after quiet all caring pro-life sidewalk who just want to give women alternative to abortion at frankly I think the reason they collected them in their successful at persuading limited not go through with abortion. 50 times a year. Our clients have been successful in turning women around by offering them caring, loving alternative to abortion. So under the guise of trying to go after lawbreakers and instructors and harassers they really want to go after the sidewalk counselors because they are successful. It's interesting to me.
Frank is a reflect on this. I want to thank our ACLJ members because the truth of the matter is we cannot do this without you, and it does take incredible perseverance. I'm just thinking about that was thing about those early days of those cases you don't 37 years ago and then in the 90s. It was a big issue give me the shank case and that men like you single versus Colorado than it was Matson. Remember all those cases and then you had a I know you Frank and the team get up around the country and yet here we are again having to do this as were actually waiting on the abortion issue and look women facing a a crisis moment in their lives. Having an alternative short abortion is really important and I applaud those women that make that difficult choice.
Sometimes for them.
Wheat wheat we think about was that what but were not the person that having that situation and I applaud the willingness to have the child bring a child to term.
Got six trinkets. The technology now my brother-in-law Gary Dixon said this many many years ago. The technology was to get to such a point that they would never be able to the pro-abortion crowd would never be able to deny that this was a child in the mother's womb, and that technology is there yes is there is making more more difficult for this movements to try and pull the bullets of the rug over people's eyes. It's it's ultimately here wheat we fight all of these battles, we continue to fight all these battles because we believe in free speech believe the frights of the sidewalk counselors. We believe in the ability also.
We believe the life of the unborn, and we believe that we should do everything we can to protect it.
Whether that's a supported case out of Texas without supporting the case of the Mississippi. On December 1 Supreme Court. The Dobbs case, whether it's in South Dakota on informed consent. We are working on so many and always have on every single front when it comes to light up every way legally possible. Whether it's protecting your pro-life speech, whether it's protecting a pro-life viewpoint whether it's actually fighting directly. The abortion industry and late-term abortions and supporting that legislative bands on those late-term abortion and now I weave into the new air where we can directly challenge Roe versus Wade, the Supreme Court decided there actually going to hear for the first time since Casey, a new challenge right on space row versus Wade. Folks, we are gaining momentum in this fight with every battle gaining the support donated ACLJ.org or matching child.
Your impact today. That's ACLJ.org. The American Center for on critical issues at home and abroad for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ challenge for every dollar you donate $10 gift becomes $20, $50 gift becomes 100 you can make a difference in protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms to you and your family.
Give a gift today online ACLJ keeping you informed and now is Jordan secular, psychosocial, far already broadcasting broke down what the house was able to pass. I say this will back better plan $2 trillion CBO which was on the lower side of how much this would cost. I said it's in the it's in the over hundred billion dollars for the costs of estimate 7 million $800 billion but but I want to go back real quick to say about this because then some major power grab for the IRS, we have been able to remove the provisions for the Pirates to build just go right into your bank account without having to get a court order for first awarded for $600 worth of transactions that It was 10,000 aggregate which is basically the same thing is over here most people.
If you have a if you are in the IRS system, paying taxes, taking it in the kind of income.
You've got those that amount of transactions over a year that was taken out but the power grab by the IRS for support to point out that they're getting $80 billion. That is, that is not that far off from their yearly budget right now. It's almost as if we are doubling the size of the IRS.
If this were to pass the Senate and were adding 87,000 new enforcement agents are referred from the administration.
They think that even though they could get those provisions indicated that everybody's bank accounts going to try to do it through regulation we say if that ever becomes law. This this this bill back better plan. They try to do that. The regulation we will fight it were pledged to do that right now for this is I get it's it's that the big question is, does any of this survive the U.S. Senate and you see that provision of surviving if others are cut. It will first of all Jordan to write any IRS language is a two edged sword for Saul is very important for us to get that most problematic language out the look, the D $80 billion and 87,000 new agents entered in a higher that could be problematic. A very problematic Jordan and another wedding we did the math on this if you hire 87,000 agents with the $45 billion of enforcement. It's in the bill. Each agent Jordan would have more than $500,000 a year to conduct audit so what that means is a whole bunch of people that never met the threshold of the risk level before forgetting an audit are going to get an audit.
Under this plan, if it's enacted. So that's usually problematic working to continue to focus on it.
To answer your questions about the Senate Jordan first on that provision. Yes, I think there's an opportunity for that to come out center mansion was very influential with the President saying this is not the snooping provision has to come out.
I think he can be effective in getting that provision out of the Senate as well, but now look what will it pass the Senate.
I think there's an opportunity for it to pass the Senate.
But if it does. Jordan it's going to look dramatically different. They're going have to come up with something that satisfies all 50 senators, including both the protect progressives like Bernie Sanders and then Sen. mansion and Sen. cinema. But here's the thing Darnay got a dude that while simultaneously satisfying Senate budgetary rules known as the bird bath and Jordan they got a pass. Something that can go back to this house that just pass this narrow version and pass the new version so there's a lot of hurdles ahead. And here's the thing that we've got a new we gotta make sure we take every point in that legislative process to try to remove the most damaging provisions here you go to the phones actually come back from break, so I will get right back to you.
We come back from this break. Let me encourage a mechanism to join established rebels to rejoice.
Next they were the participants of international news as well. What's going on around the world especially with China and more surreal. Talk to Rick but first let me encourage you right now, you've heard just today as a snippet of the work they were doing. Stacy OJ is a lot of different kinds of work we do all of this because of your financial support Stacy OJ we would exist we would have the attorneys use Frankenstein medically said jersey the case, talking government affairs work for doing this is just a snippet of the day. The ACLJ but it's it's your ability again because your financial support, and I only ask this if you're financially able to because of you were able to do all so this is the month to great month to do it. Matching challenge double the impact your donation. The group does it say hey you know Jordan if you go donate $30 right now ACLJ.org match so it's like you donate $60 trigger that matching challenge building today ACLJ better will be back the American Center for Law and were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad.
Whether it's defending religious freedom detecting those covering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy fighting to protect life in the courts and in Congress ACLJ would not be able to do any of this. For that we are grateful. Now there's an opportunity to help way you can participate in the ACLJ's matching challenge for every dollar you donate $10 gift becomes 20 $50 gift becomes 100. This is time for the ACLJ the work we simply would not occur without her matching challenge make protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms. Most gift today online okay only when a society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice. Is there any hope for that culture to survive.
And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life.
We created a free powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn will show you how publication includes all major ACLJ fighting for the rights of pro-life activist ramifications 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the street and what Obama care means many ways your membership is powering the right mission in life today online/back to secular joy by our senior advisor policy and national security Rick Trammell host of issues Rick right off the bat. I want to talk about China and Thailand both the Olympics but something that was really outrageous that occurred in Prague. The Marriott Hotel in Prague refused to host a Uighur Muslim conference citing political neutrality, so a Marriott in Prague is in the Marriott company is so worried about China. I guess kicking them out of the Chinese market that they would not allow a group that is being that is being systematically executed, exterminated his genocide in China. Of these Uighurs from hosting a conference not in China, Marriott, but at a a Marriott in Prague. Ultimately, they were able find another hotel to be Rick. It showed that right there is the example of Chinese power.
We had a little audio problems. Rick back to tell you what that what that may possibly get that fixed.
Will check that out, but it does show their power because the leaders are terribly persecuted. It's known around the globe that this is a problem, the Chinese government also has been very clear and not responding to pressure and the fact is that this wasn't even as you said Jordan in China.
This was in Prague. Prague and they cited the Marriott cited political neutrality narrative you bid to political events US that stuff about the policy here was a policy of Democrats say they got up as artist or policy. Prague over some political activity in in China, but Rick to meet me, just go back to that serious power with US companies are so afraid of doing anything that could upset China that they will not allow this group that's being persecuted over conference halfway across the world what you're up and I wonder if it would be able to happen here in the United States.
I'm all for companies getting to choose columns and doesn't come but I think that people need to realize that there are consequences to Marriott deciding that they want to stay politically. I haven't seen Marriott state will cancel culture. For instance in the United States. Certainly there are groups that they don't want their properties that are affiliated without triumphantly seen some of those examples, but I think you live and die your choices. Marriott decides that they don't want to take a hard stance against China, they might have some NBA players that will come and visit their properties, but I think that a lot of other Americans and Europeans are going to say that's not what I value and I want to stand. We can we consult with our pocketbook. The conference organizers for the Uighurs here said that they were stunned by the response of the Marriott Corporation, which is stunning actually is and we will set it Marriott. I mean it's not like that. We haven't stated, Marriott's and you know the Marriott Corporation in the Marriott family should understand religious freedom because it was a company that's leadership Mormon seven Church of latter-day Saints and that and that's always been religious frames always been a big issue for the Mormons that you got a group that's being systematically having their lives ended. They are literally placed in concentration camps, and as you all know I do not use that term lightly because I had family that died in concentration camps and an American corporation buckles to China. Rick growing power of China specially in Europe and I think what we have to be able to do is recognize and articulate that the Chinese system is not a free system but let's be really honest domain name denies systematically access to the Internet, human rights abuses and we have a whole bunch of American companies to go and open up markets in China collect a lot of money but they don't take a stand like they do in America and I think that they have to be able to live and die by the sword. If you're going to work inside you're going to have a company based in China. The Chinese, Artie requires you to have a Chinese partner and partner is obligated to turn over information activities. All of that Chinese you you don't get to do work in China and pretend like you're just there to do business and and capitalism because your Chinese partners ball into the chat I'd like to go to problem trying.
I was going to Iran. Because this is in the final question I had on China race was that you we know that the Olympics is is when to Take Pl., Winter Olympics. There has been calls for the US not to participate this because maybe for US dealt delegates not to attend but just a letter. Athletes of trade the 10 but again it it to me this just it's like the preevent this Olympics to a real potential new Chinese aggression site there waiting to take action in Taiwan until after they can show the world and put on their propaganda campaign about the Olympics now for 18 months and I think that you have to make a quick athletes now that where boycotting that the policy that were going to class.
I believe now is a little too late and training in one big guy that you I will say no. I think that we can do about it. Corporate US companies from getting any money.
The next and supporting them in, and squeezing them where possible.
Nothing that's great Iran.
So here we go. We know the bind administration is trying to get cozy with Iran. Again we been talking about that with you from for months or now.
We got a report not report the Justice Department has indicted two Iranian nationals for a debt should be attempted interference in the 2020 election that includes influencing alleged Republican lawmakers Democratic voters American news outlets. The indictment was unsealed on Thursday. The state Treasury Department now imposing new sanctions on six Iranian people and one Iranian entity. These were aggressive attempts.
According to the indictment, the Iranian conspirator sought to compromise 11 state voter registration and voter information websites in September and October 2020 and say successfully exported computers and one unnamed state that no one's note no special councils on all of this, but they did and item good for them but this all comes while the binder ministration is begging at the table to get a deal with Iran. Washington DC is what we heard during the hoax was blanket punishment in Russia now doing business because of the misinformation and propaganda campaign.
Now we see an aggressive Iranian regime activity and all but silence from the implications of what that means for our policy if we are going to be consistent that we should shut down any negotiations on the CO punished the Iranian regime for their manipulation of the American election to be consistent in the problem is that Washington DC has only one standard to member charge Rick really up to minister accused of obtaining confidential voter information from at least one state selection website getting down on more than 100,000 voters. The state was identified in the indictment hundred dollars voters information was compromised by the Iranians while the bind administration is sitting there trying to have negotiations with them to go over well qualified, but I believe that there should be consequences that are equally when we find that individuals are manipulating or trying to manipulate our elections.
Clearly the case and the silence is deafening.
From Washington DC you need to have State Department type John Kerry Anthony blanket and all of the others who are trying to place negotiations with Iran to look at these issues and to say there is a reaction from Americans of your activities trying to influence our elections. Let's be fair by the standard. Rick is always great to have you on the broadcast. We appreciate your insight. Your input and again as always, let me just encourage people. The reason why people like Rick redoubt for acting director of national intelligence, teach about the issues we just talked about with him globally and people like a secretary puppy is because your financial support to their surfline justice were able to continue to increase our team. The expertise of our team as well. Yes we talk a lot with with them on the broadcast. But I'll tell you there's a lot of work they do behind the scenes as well. Rick and Mike that you don't see him your call with Rick on Monday to give her lawyers from Europe on other potentially major matter.
That's again I said we can't talk about a radio yet so they're not just here to talk but they are part of the team support our work. We want to continue to expand want to continue to grow so we can take on all the challenges and take them on the best way possible, support our work with the matching challenge month of November city seal, J.working right.

Today online okay hold on for Minnesota as of yet more to say they heard a lot of our discussion will give you time to do so will thank you over and over again and proposing the massive bill so the pages huge price tag and edit with having a different location with very little time to review the legislation. My question is are the legislators Senate or House were actually voting on these things. Taking the time or even having the time to read them and understand what the voting on this because they can explain it to 21. A lot of them rely on their conference so you rely on the Democratic conference to kind of walk you through but you you work on Capitol Hill are there offices that do put something to be possible for one person in the time that they have offices that put together group and then go through it. Offices there are offices that try to do that during their offer also coalitions of officers. They kinda banded together in and break it up and try to read through it. But look, I mean just answer Allen's question as honestly as I can.
You would be physically impossible. Even a combined capacity like that to have read this bill that they passed yesterday in its final form Jordan in the time that was afforded and here's why I'm in the rules committee was waiting for the CBO score to put out a rule for debate on this that ruled income until almost the dinner hour last night and then it was on the floor by 8 PM Outlook. A lot of this text had been available in various forms and in various combinations as you go along, but Jordan when you're putting out, you know, one 2500 page bill and then one 2800 page bill 91 3000 page book, it doesn't make any sense to read them in piecemeal form you need to know the final form. If you get it a try to do the due diligence that Alan is talking about the way this happened yesterday Jordan. There is physically no way that a single member of the House of Representatives read that entire bill in its final form before they had a vote on it. Yes, everything is no single person could do it there offices to try to do the right thing, which I think there are members and their staffs who try to do the right thing, but ultimately here.
The way this is been played especially by Democrats since the affordable care act is find out what's it after you pass it. Nancy Pelosi said that about this bill. She said it ultimately the American people like it. Once they figure out what's in it with the same kind of statement. Yes it's interesting canapés books that looks like one, because we didn't get a chance to talk about that in Turkey whose economies once again in real trouble won't make it through the next election because of the economy will this cause more destabilization in the region.
He is a destabilizing force in the region to be quite frank unplugged. Can you brought this up.
We have a lot of expertise in Turkey with written a book on Turkey called burning bridges and that's exactly what the Turkish regime has done. They have burn bridges. They were bridge to your no longer that they is love the size they be they were a country that was under Ataturk was very secular in its approach was more religious freedom than and the Jewish community in Turkey's pre-much on the Christian communities down to literally 3000 was one of the central places of of Christendom. The Orthodox Church is headquarters is in Constantinople and yet the one who continues to put pressure on his people is trying to manipulate the only company this time though, it backfired. Yet the question is, you know, does a court cause more destabilization in the region and I think one gone would actually be more of a stabilizing force depending on who's behind. Yes, I always like to say like what I want to do more subsea. These news reports pop up really the last day or two. It's about the Turkish lira just taking a dive even though they bid making cuts tried to cut the rate by just 1% and it's lost 1/3 of its value since March so that if you dollar bill has lost 1/3 of its value throughout the world to read so that inflation will talk about what it what it is. If you try to trade for a different kind of curtsy or if you're buying a goods at one rate without 1/3 more so this could be a serious challenge to a strong man who appeared to be setting himself up for cut of the Putin style leader for life situation. But as my dad Kaushik Libby always caution on these issues involving Turkey and anywhere that region of the world. What now we have to do is look at who would be likely successors. One sub would probably be bad so would probably be be great who is actually has the best chance because what he did was he ushered in a new era of embracing Islam and mixing it with politics brought back the burqas to get you what it's since we allow that kind of religious liberty and freedom. Our country would never think of that allowing but he brought it back is the symbol of its no longer Ataturk's Turkey yet so a common enemy remember him as a fellow diving Hudson as a situation develops.
And he was one of our fellows are Oxford center as well is an expert in this area and as the situation develops.
Will keep an eye on it, but then you touch this issue directly we have Pastor Bronson without a lot of dealings on the Turkish front. This is not it is getting news in minutes. People are starting to hear about it could be a big deal in the next 30 days.
It could be Jane. As I was thinking about this. I think there's actually a lot of symmetry between the Bronson situation and the one were facing mainly because that that was the last time that the lira really started to collapse in Turkey, and it was because Pres. Trump took the detention the imprisonment of Pastor Bronson so seriously and said I'm going to sanction the lira started to collapse, and lo and behold, Pres. Erewhon started to talk and and and and or. Bronson was eventually released.
Now as the lira collapse, though dad me. I think I think the symmetry is that other people just darken a stand for the meeting when the pressure started happening. The last time they demanded that Pastor Bronson be released. Now they're standing up and saying that this may not be the right guy to lead our country. You definitely need a stabilizing force in that region J but as Jordan says I mean look. It's certainly unstable now, what would the replacement be more stable. You just don't know at this point it's like the situation really I hate to say this is like the situation in Syria mean you just don't know if the person behind it is can be worse than the person you're dealing with a but having said that, you know were obviously on top of it was a lot of work there. Debbie on Facebook asked this question than what you think happens in the Senate with this but I guess we should let's bring that the closure up for the week and what you think well to move to it right after Thanksgiving and they're saying jaded. They want to try to be done with it by Christmas. I mean, look, you know what deadlines in DC may not a whole lot tell you this.
They've got a lot of work to do on it.
Any they got a come to a policy agreement. They gotta survive budgetary rules at the bottom line a ton of stuff is going to have to come out of this bill for to even comply. And then there can have to get all 50 senators on board know went. When I try to predict these things today and it's it's sort of a fools errand to do it, but when I try to predict them.
I almost always predict on the side that some form of spending will pass and see you try want to try to make that is least damaging as possible, but can they pass something out of the Senate also survives in the house. I mean I guess if I were forced to predict. I would say maybe something slim down J it's far from certain. There's there's just a lot of work ahead on it to scrub some of the worst provisions. That's the bottom line we literally did, we could discover to discuss the Iran, Turkey, congressional action on a bill with the iris women in everybody's business churn China and we also file a lawsuit with any pro-life speakers as of one and one of my best guess we should tell you that we got today for ACLJ and not to mention the focal about to go on. This is were done.
