Response to present him with personal sections and Supreme Court news for possible replacements for Justice Stephen Breyer have been reviewed in human form. Then again, now this is what I hear from you Sharon), call one 800-6843 11 secular broadcast discussion to go to a you see on television. Give it a little more detail on those we want to start off Ukraine arrestor situation because you got a lot of back-and-forth right now between Russia and Ukraine in writing. Actually Russia has said as we told you the show that sanctions from the US would be quote destructive to the US of sanctions on Russia by the United States would be quote destructive to the US they may ask yourself how their debt is a serious question. But there is one area oil and natural gas which is gone up significantly in the last fiscal year. Our reliance on Russian oil and natural gas so there is there's a way for Russia to put some punishment on the US. It was interesting that all this is not that we have to be really crystal clear on this fact of the matter is that I saw was a well yes expert to accompany same because of the lack of pipeline affected by misprision closing down pipelines. It's hard to get the gas to the various areas that need to gas to what happens. Well you relying on who Russia. I mean this is the this is the great dilemma and I and I want to sit back for a moment and have everybody understand the fact that what you're saying right now is listen to this, we are responding in writing to questions from Russia. Now think about this for moment we are the United States of America and we are responding in writing to questions from Russia as if there interrogatories or request for production of documents or in a Bob Muller demanding you know that the interview, the President and all were going to do is you know give written responses to questions that we think are appropriate, which was not much of what they asked what the United States of America is in the process has now delivered Andy written responses to the Russian government that doesn't look like strong leadership is a matter of fact it's demeaning to the United States will respond in writing to a demand by the Russian or I should say the nascent and coming back, Soviet Union or czarist Empire. If you want to make characterize it but demeaning to us as a most powerful nation in the world. A nation committed to democratic rule that human rights responding to a totalitarian regime and yes it still is a totalitarian regime in Russia in writing as if we're schoolchildren being taught a lesson we have to respond in writing so the teacher can look at what we wrote and see if it's something that's agreeable you. Here's the problem justly manages the displeasure with the United States. American workforce and by the incentives of China and other got three things I like responded to this is where leadership is gone that were in the position only nine states of America were were responding in writing to these entities as if this is something normal, but I think we are not the same United States of America.

In fact, China military. Russia and Ukraine to China's also said that things have got much better under the by the administration when it comes to much shortly. Quote if sit more positive signals than those receiving the present truck and then what is try to do a list of demands, the US should stop interfering in the Beijing Winter Olympics stop playing fire on the Taiwan issue and stop creating various I love this would anti-China clicks to contain China so the US is receiving demands from Russia from China not issuing the demands receiving demands were waiting for response gives a call one 864 3110 how we we look is a country right now think that we have been answering written what is literary week because this unit was actors would be taking the actions that they are. They think they can make make some money off this maybe makes the deals that are positive for them. Give us a call one 800 684 31 two layer of rock has to review dramatic colors like wild first Green Beret elected to the U.S. House challenges facing Americans or substantial time in our value freedom and sword constitutional rights are under attack is more important than ever to stay with the American Center for Law and Justice for decades now ACLJ is going on the front lines protecting your freedoms defending your 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 our work without your support, we remain committed to protecting your religious and constitutional freedoms and 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. Thank you.

If you're not well this is the perfect time to stand with us.

ACLJ.org where you can learn more about her life changing become a member today ACLJ 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 powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn is called mission life will show you how you are personally pro-life support and publication includes a look at all major ACLJ pro-life cases were fighting for the rights of pro-life activist the ramifications of Roe V Wade, 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the what Obama care means to the pro-life of the many ways your membership in the ACLJ is empowering the right to life question free copy of mission life today online ACLJ/justice and stay for you is knowing that you would talk that just of the broadcast pretty thoroughly. But now we got some more names we done research already on those names we can provide you with more information about the likely candidates that picks for Pres. Biden in the Supreme Court's Reeves that the second half hour.

Don't don't miss that come in the next segment were to be joined by by Congress Mike Watts. He is the first Green Beret to be elected to Congress.

So he's got military service very direct and he still in the National Guard.

He can be talk about Ukraine or Russia to about what needs to be done now. Not after the Biden predicted massive World War II style invasion of Ukraine so that what we do after that what we should be doing now in the White House that they have been very they push back on anyone any report or even who said you talk about these tough things you can do that start that today to try and show how tough the sections will be the reason why they push back is because they actually don't have the what would colic a sanctions regime set up. They don't have a sanctions regime set up.

They don't have Europe with them on this yet more than just the life he just United States, Germany, clearly not with us on this.

So that's that's clear you have the Russian government already saying that the answers are not to be adequate, and I still am in shock that were in this position where the Russian government is is is demanding written responses from the United States. I guess that is if it's an interrogatory and you know and you see in a and then combined type of personally sanctioning Vladimir Putin listen to this personally sanctioning him didn't think you can see that. Okay, first of all that and the rest of the course meet response of the desperate will of the assets in the eyesight which I don't believe but okay let's assume it. This is not a thought out plan. So any we've studied Russia and in in in many over many hundreds of years and as I keep going back to Disraeli quote power is how you deal with them neighbor and say that on CNN you got a project power.

We why did we agree to respond to written questions as if this is some FBI investigation of the United States were given written responses. It's it really is absurd. The meaning actually of the reason is that were a weak country and we become awake country since the departure of Pres. drop from the presidency and I'll say it unabashedly and unashamedly we do not project power. We do not project authority. We do not project the image that Pres. Trump presented. We have a pusillanimous week feckless President who is engaging in a candidate with these Russians giving him answers on paper and then they look at the answers and they say while they may be destructive, but they're not going to be painful are painful, and destructive, or you sanction me and I'm not too happy with what you wrote.

I may have to ask you to write it back to me again what kind of stuff is this only in kindergarten, are we playing school here will be exchange papers across the aisle with the teacher to determine whether or not the teacher is mad at us are not mad at us know what you can say is I'm sorry the answers were unacceptable at some and that's with the Russians and say these answers are an acceptable party invited us into invade Ukraine.

So what difference does it make these answers unacceptable.

Yeah, like that the responses that's what this the crippled spokesperson that people might river this day the at beach repress cuff everybody he said Russians top leaders are are not allowed under their own law from from having Ford assets. Now I get I don't agree that that I don't believe that they have no foreign assets but what it means, that is that you gotta have a sanctions regime just saying they probably don't have a bunch of money if you're Putin stuck in a US bank number that got in the US financial institutions with their money around payments you know where they're putting their money. It's you know these governments on earth and Bennett director of government affairs because you think it would be some bipartisan action on this of course stone silence right now, although I do sense that even some the Democrats they were getting a little bit edgy on where this is going what the problem is, it's gotten to this point and is much harder to engage after the fact is you been pointing out a mean I J there were what were to prybar bipartisan actions, the Senate voted 55 to 44 to an index sanctions a few weeks ago, the administration opposed at the behest of Vladimir Putin. They also sent a bipartisan collection of senators over to meet with Pres. Zelinski said there's been some effort, but essentially Jade. The reason that it hasn't coalesces because the White House is really kept his party in line. That's how we've gotten to this point and you know the content of Vladimir Putin's point about how sanctions would be destructive but not painful that that's a red herring. I mean like every financial institution of the world has access to this twisted system, which the US controls and a vast majority of transactions across the world still take place and are conducted in the US dollar so that that's really an excuse that does not have clout behind it. But J if the President of the United States and the executive branch just taken at face value within it does have meaning because they don't act on it.

We answered questions in writing as if we are, what the defendant instant and criminal litigation were in civil litigation doing think about this for a moment before the United States of America and were answering questions in writing. Vladimir Putin demands question is answered in writing Joe Biden. Let's give him answers and we were so forthcoming you know when those kind of negotiations. In other cases we manage and negotiate that, but that's in litigation.

This is it litigation. This is diplomacy were responding in writing.

So can we reject the answer to. We don't like to answer three answer. Paul was okay because you dollars you could let us invade a little bit. I mean, that's ridiculous a thing about LR calling for Marilyn online to if you want to talk to us on air gives a call one 800 684 31 two that's 1-800-684-3110. This American weakness on display and that gives me no happiness to say words like that. I collect American strength alike in the world is afraid of us who are welcome to secular you're on the year. I love my country and the quality, but in reality it, no one is happy with their plans. Now we need to look at all of the things the property we do not have to respect China. They are: they are evil, but they're doing the people in concentration camps have to respond in writing what people do legally and get that a government expert. I would like you to call me today would you do selection was at this hundred condoms and on folks. We live in a constitutional republic so you elect your off the people elected representatives to Congress and the Senators you put your legislators in your house and the President of the United States. Don't elect judges and those are point out vote in massive ways that the other side listen. Both sides are highly motivated was like it or some yes has amazing elections have consequences you are watching the consequences United States of America is answering the Russians in writing instead of having our present go on TV and demand. By the way Russia you do this.

This is what happens X, Y, and Z. We can't even say what would happen because again I did what when I say sanctions regime.

What I mean is that you got these countries on board with you so that Dimitri Prescott catches say if you want to just try to sanction me. We have no assets massively in the US anyways. But I know where that they do have assets moving through Europe through Germany through the pipeline that there are there are but you've got to put that together in family. I worried about generally is like you said will, in wash generated talk to Congress of officers and X friends visit military experience, but is that is that so many in Washington have put forward so many ideas of what to do and think the Biden administration just got there just like holding their air shut or really comes back to the conversation we had with Rick on this broadcast many times during when you send a diplomat over to another adversary or to another country just generally door you have to give them diplomatic tools to use when we do we sent to Wendy Sherman and Jake Sullivan over and we know that their approach is one where they don't want to use any tools they don't want to use any pressure or any leverage they just want to talk about things look even tools that you are ultimately going to use the other side needs to believe that everything I mean everything is on the table. Now that doesn't mean every option is one that is good to use but they need to believe that American strength is on display and that the diplomats that we send over are there to negotiate from a posture of strength Jordan, when you send someone like Wendy Sherman who was the lead negotiator of the Iran deal which they just openly flaunted. Why would Vladimir Putin believed that she was coming over to deal in strength. He just doesn't believe that Jordan is what people think from my own just put yourself in the State Department and you're in the room and or maybe over in the Oval Office and the secular state comes in and the deputy secretary of state and head of the desk for Russians is listen of letting report has a series of questions he wants her answers to let let's sits around the table and discuss answering questions in writing to the Russian government. I just looked at the sink in for a moment manually in a minute here you shaking your head. I mean this is were answering the Russians questions in writing yet day. The reason I'm shaking my head is that it reminds me of October 28, 1940 when the Italians but and demand of questions on the Greek Prime Minister John met access and saying that Greece we demand the following of you and gave a list of questions to be answered and to be responded to. Okay you know what the Greek Prime Minister did.

He took a bottle of ink and threw it on the piece of paper and said there's my response and he uttered one Greek word Aki which means no folks, we come back soon.

I talked about what you doing right back only when a society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice. Is there any hope for that culture to survive.

The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side, you're already a member. Thank you, are not well this is the perfect time to stand with us.

ACLJ.org where you can learn more about her life changing become a member today ACLJ secularity very close to it later.

The broadcast way hundred 68 31 two were joined by good friend of the ACLJ right now.

Congressman Mike Wallace of Florida, six congressional district, because wealth is the first Green Beret elected to the House of Representatives and also continues to serve in the National Guard cars while things are being with us today in secular. Let me, I saw you on the foxes this morning.

I would ask have a similar question, which is the America people are have Avenue past. I think over and over. They're not getting us in sufficient answer from the Biden ministration, which is the first question is why should they be so concerned about Ukraine, to the point where were talking about troop deployments potentially up to 50,001 article that was released and why they should be even on the surface level why they should be concerned about what's happening in Ukraine remain redundant, number one in the wake of Afghanistan authoritarianism is on the march around the world and and after letting terrorist dictate the terms and abandoning fellow Americans and betraying our allies. Putin the North Korea, Iran, they all see an opportunity right now we will help you just walk over to Ukraine with no consequences.

I think that's going to have even further consequences down the slope argument and we can't behave like Neville Chamberlain did back in the 1930s, right, first it was the Czech Republic, then it would pull in the den with Fran and with all the work work three with the other pieces. Putin fully intends to reestablish the old Soviet Union and and he paid an opportunity now with the weakness that he smelled like a lighthouse not to do that or not.

It certainly not in our interest now it it it it to the point where we should be putting American boots on the ground Ukraine. No, I don't think so, but can we be doing a lot more to frustrate slow down and and hopefully deter absolutely.

But Biden right now is basically sending a strongly worded letter making the outcome of promises and what he'll do after the fact rather than taking tough measures to deter this Jay Sekulow. I am really concerned about besides the overall situation is the fact that the United States of America's diplomatic corps answered questions in writing proponent propounded by the Russian government, as it were in a civil or criminal case and were answering depositions or interrogatories, United States of America were answering the Russians in writing their questions. It seems to me to be preposterous, preposterous, and by the way they delivered they just delivered that document to Congress but they classified the liar that classified here in the United States, put it in the hand of the Russian had that yellow morning or tonight right lap. Oh, absolutely. And the Bennett for their own propaganda. Yet we can't reply because they classified it on on on their once again were getting our adversaries more latitude than than our fellow American. But you're right. I mean, I am far more concerned about what might eating we thought it playbook under Obama land when Putin invaded Crimea and Ukraine. We call it playbook under Obama win every time the Iranians got tough. The lighthouse conceded more and and I'd I really fear what they just put in that document.

I hope to see it tomorrow. The other pushback we get lots in the White House right now any reporter asked quietly doing things now what what what if we talk about his massive sanctions that can be crippling. Why not start putting them in the place to show the Russians that we can do that. My concern is that because we had lack of cooperation in Europe and NATO that maybe we don't have the ability to put those sections in place about that that would be very concerning, but that it would just be unilateral from the US and that might not be enough like I know, I think you are a really great point number one we should be putting them in and place now with the methods to Putin stand down your forfeit and de-escalate and will lift the sanction, but I think the bigger issue with the sanctions. Whether we put them in place now or threatened to do later is that the largest economy in Europe. Germany isn't going to be on board for sanctions to work. They have to have to be content that than they have to be in dollars and euros and I do not see the Germans getting on board hack. They won't even agree to send any legal aid right now to Ukraine, or even allow their airspace to be used for much less put their own domestic population with a new German government in a difficult position in the middle of winter when they rely on Russia for 50% of their But I also think that there's an important point to make here in the context of the green new deal built back better and this push to just dive into renewables. Germany had done that California has done that we seen rolling blackouts in California within Germany. Now, back away from from nuclear and it only made them more reliant on the dirtiest form of The world which is Russia it's just ridiculous.

And now were hearing that the administration is going to Connor and asking them to be prepared to pump more To fill in for the boys after they crackdown on US oil and gas is idiotic is to understand what's going United States answering questions in writing propounded by the Russian government. The Chinese gave the United States a list of three parameters on Thursday that it has to be met both parties have to be met for continued bilateral negotiations. At the same time, the binder ministration decides to shut down pipelines for natural gas in the United States of America were finally energy independent and never going to cutter in the UAE in these other Allstate partners to get them to produce more, so we don't end up just relying on who Russia said that we may have input in one year.

They have successfully put us in a horrible position politically and diplomatically in my view, Congressman Noah yeah and militarily, and for your listener.

Every time they see the Pratt price of gas going up every time they see that the pipe of a barrel of oil going up it going into the hands of pollutant that cash is going in the hands of the Iranian regime, and that is only ghetto in bold minutes. It shouldn't surprise anyone with EM mapping on Ukraine and the Iranians through their terrorist proxy launching missiles at Israel an article about all different, all because of Biden's weakness, lack of judgment and competence.

I am way about my delay. We have a mentor that we have a pallet and terror super state that fully intends to strike United States. Again, all in the face of the question to you and what I think you for you to service to our customers in Congress and in the military but let me just say this you every present faces lots of tough issues.

We did have to be here.

I'm believing that the US did not have to be in this position. Whether it's Afghanistan Russia China. This is not the posture we had to be clear, either self-inflicted wound bad policy decision guide it's not there.

Not not going to turn around. I don't know how we make it through another three years at the same team around by what around Obama thought the Iran deal with the good with the good thing the part all trade was a good thing thing godly Crimea helped China if he did not escape to Cuba to keep on coming. I really appreciate you taking time in your schedule, appreciate your service to the country. Both the incident in Congress and also in the military, thanks for standing with our country and through this for the greatest country in the world. We got some real challenges real serious don't think you got a lot to talk about to come in second. More the spring news as well.

Ukraine Russia issue questions and comments after your Congress and want to call 1-800-684-3110 is a great time to do it after the break and get you on the air when he hundred 684-3110 ACLJ is been on the frontline protecting your freedom is defending your rights in court in Congress and in the public arena. The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side, you're already a member thanking God's 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 keeping you informed and now is Jordan secular back to secular hospitals on the US supreme court is restricted board discussion there, but also on if you because that Russia Ukraine will just type out Carter's waltz is always great to have him on his perspective because I getting custody of top special forces United States the Green Berets into Congress. His in the battles that were talking about right now.

You fought it continues to add, is a member of the National Guard, so take your calls at 164, 31 to but also on US Supreme Court that we just received this should be an event that covers any moment. Is it all right out almost but we did get the letter that was delivered to the White House from Justice Breyer dated today.

Other weeks we heard that the White House was informed about this about a week ago informing them of how he will resign but also continue to serve on the circuit courts are allowed to do that they can. That's of the lettuces and ready to tell you that I decided to retire from regular active judicial services and associate justice of the Supreme Court of United States and to serve under the provisions of 28 USC 3370 1B which allows him to serve on the circuit courts, which he did previously. I intend this decision to take effect when the court rises for the summer recess this year typically late June or early July. Assuming that my successor has been nominated confirm in other words, if not nominated, confirmed he staying on that will be a nine-member court, the first Monday in October and the court was back in session now. What's interesting when fan been on this right away and were already getting the sense of who the nominees are potential nominees but it is a little bit guessing going on. But it's been pretty clear. But then I wanted to get your sense of what the Republican reaction is because a lot of that one of the nominees was just confirm to guess what Mayor Gartland seat when he became the Atty. Gen. United States. Justice Jackson became Judge Jackson was was put on the DC Court of Appeals and just confirm yeah I think I think that's one of the reasons that she's probably the front runner James Judge Canton Jean Brown Jackson sits in Mayor Gartland seat on the DC circuit Court of Appeals for just the right exactly right, former clerk for bride. There are a lot of political reasons to Jay that she would be a natural fit.

She also generate. I got three votes from Republican senators and last June, so she got 53 votes to confirm for her current seat. I think she probably makes a lot of sense. I think that she is the one that she thinks is the front runner Jay.

I did review some of the hearing, though for several of these judges that are shown on the so-called reported shortlist this morning and another judge that I think is going to get consumed. Some consideration is a judges sitting on the seven circuit Judge Candace Jackson, a CUNY addition very personally impressive. I've heard she is. It got dealt very favorably with the White House during her previous confirmation fight, so I think Jay that those are probably the two front runners at this point is an interesting term fight that we have seen Supreme Court justice confirmation fights and you think about justice with justice capital went through not horrible display. What Justice Thomas went through back 30 years ago.

Justice Barrett where they accused her of the dogma of the religion lives deep within her.

I don't anticipate that will happen here, but they could prove me wrong but go ahead. So I agree with you Jay and the Republicans are very civil. I've even seen the hard questioning by Sen. Kennedy from Louisiana. My respect greatly but even though his questioning and his cross-examination literally of judicial nominees is very tough and very pointed it's always done civilly. It's always done with respect for the office that the person all over the position that they are seeking go and I don't see the Republicans engaging in that kind of streetfighting that we saw so horribly begun with Clarence Thomas that you and I remember personally and that was continued through Cavanaugh and continued through Justice Barrett is Jordan. I wonder if this I don't think so we can back this about to have prior a bind them together but that was the White House hoping that everything that may help with their base.

They pick and with epic member working the scrutinize group broken field with by the progressive liberals are to scrutinize just as hard. Yes.

And if it's not actually where wants to be the could backfire on them because you're saying is an African-American woman is not enough rest left and again I think Susan let's talk that there really get to the challenges facing Americans as time went on freedom sword constitutional rights are under attack more important than ever with the American Center for Law and Justice on the frontlines projecting your freedoms defending your rights and courts in Congress and in the public arena and exceptional track record of success. Here's the bottom line we could not do our 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 are already a member thanking God's well this is the perfect time to stand with us ACLJ.where you can learn more about her life changing become a member today ACLJ only one.

A society can agree that the most vulnerable 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 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 a look at all major ACLJ were fighting for the rights of pro-life activists ramifications. 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the street and what Obama care means many ways your membership is powering the right question mission in life today online/secular respect to your cause. Now what hundred 64.

31. How important is this Supreme Court replacing just prior to our audience. Yet it's it's not a what it is to shift the court immediately at all. It might push the liberals on the court to be more liberal, but they'd still be in the minority when they're acting very liberal so you know, and I think for my position here is that unlike baby 70s nominees. The past for you to save you obviously Republican oppose the novelty to be visualized on a philosophy, what they've actually said what they've actually done I will tell you when you look at some of these. These are pretty new people on the court.

You know there's a lot less there when it comes to court so the word ego. If you have speeches and writings and all that becomes available. He's not a works for who they work for what you know and they can start putting together judicial philosophy but a lot of calls coming in on this 1-800-684-3110. I think you and begin a question were asking you how important is this to you when there's inflation when there's Russia, Ukraine, when this covert when is your worried about your kids getting into school because the left thinks you forget all about that and just the oh Job I've got Supreme Court justice so raw arrive everything is okay and there's another aspect of this will take calls in the moment and that is it's likely that the decision adopts case that Roe versus Wade. If in fact overturn will take that issue off the table. The answer with advancement you support Roe versus Wade is can be very academic. If it's overturned, which is always been a big point of contention about any of the nominees will be of course they will be there to say. But of course am bound by the court's decision until no one comes up morbid semi conservative court for long. Thomas 410 thank you, Harry called from Pennsylvania online. One hey Harry, walking the secular you're on their good afternoon wandering Mr. Biden and second in command during the bottom of the description that we need to go with Merrick Garland nominees for the spring court again like Biden is not want to hold that which is popular to has.

Let's take out the criteria. Biden said that it has to be an African-American woman.

So he does not meet the standards he's been the prairies (synaptic has been very upset with him on voting on going after former Trump officials. The list goes on. I'm not saying again that that I don't say agree with him on that but but they he's not popular is for that way and I think a lot of the progressive left of the not happy that that that seat was ultimately taken by Republicans are happy that he's on the court generally what's interesting here and that is so you know the under any of this verse and will take more calls of 100 684-3110 you look at.

Traditionally, when we get into a Supreme Court nominee at the end of the term. It's been sometime denominational probably come forward and you know April.

I guess it may, in the start having your Google do the meat go around the convert in to meet with members of the Senate and then you may be hearings in June and then confirmed upon the conclusion of the court.

You're expecting this big titanic battle because the Republicans that it was something that's put three justices on the Supreme Court. I just suspect here. It's not going to be.

I'm not saying that's right. By the way, and I don't that we should do.

We should never stoop to bear disgusting behavior what they try to do with cabin on the way they demeaned the religion of a McComb in becoming Barrett II think that's deplorable, disgusting, and I you note, don't go down there but scrutinize these opinions so you know what the judicial philosophy lease know what you're getting. I think I'm very start that process any why think you're right think that's exactly what the Republican senators are going to do the going to be highly civil and respectful and highly polite because that's how they reacted to these were not going to see the bloodbath that we saw with Clarence Thomas that we saw with Cavanaugh, which was a bloodbath in which we almost saw with Jess's Barrett in that horrible statement that Sen. Feinstein made questioning the depth of her moral dogma and her religion were not to see that we are going to see tough questioning into these nominees and whether judicial philosophy is because the Republicans know that there there are and I don't think there'll be any defections.

Quite frankly, there are the votes in the Senate to confirm Biden's nominating which is meeting Jordan politically. How does this play is good-looking on the call when you want to call for some a bill in Wyoming online for he built like all I mentioned today and I like the question do you think maybe mention my pushback on their these nominees because of the way they retreated on their stance for the filibuster and hang up and listen to your answer with because we know that a couple of these top topics years Artie got there about and gotten phone three Republicans. It would be if we would have to be some issue that arose your policy issue that was just so out of line with where they were with their constituents but but I'd just if it's one of the nominees. It's at the top of the site. Judge Jackson, she just with the confirmation she got mentioned cinemas vote yet have to be one of two things Jordan have to be a nominee. That's out of left field.

Like you said somebody that we are need are talking about right now that really bothers them on an ideological issue or something that comes up during the nomination process is very surprising. I just don't see any Sen. on the Democrat side that voted for a judge last year I'd not voting for that same judge when they're elevated to the Supreme Court and look every vacancies important, but the political atmospherics where you're at in the cycle what the makeup of the Senate is what the makeup of the court is all those things go into how contentious it is and maybe the most important thing here, and Jordan.

We have made this argument several different for several different nominations when the Senate had different majorities.

The biggest factor here is what the American people said in the last election in the last election, whether you like it or not, they gave the Senate control to leader Schumer. So if you can rally his troops there gonna be able to confirm the nominee with one other thing I was asked to join in that regard, and that is this the put forward and I would say it's work when the people on this list and when will say this with their legal positions are. Do you think that there is the political oomph to really push back hard, very difficult thing. Yeah, I think it took will have to take an issue that arises.

That didn't arise before the confirmation or that this wasn't found because the research wasn't that is deeply because it was a Supreme Court obligation that is something that is so out of line, the Second Amendment, so out of line on where the American people are to be what it can be the issue that they show themselves to be in extreme actor when it comes to philosophy entertainment with religious faith is in the Tagamet's extreme. Put them on the extreme spectrum of judicial philosophy. Now, like someone said goodbye to the second limit doesn't exist in the right if they wrote that Somerset summer yeah I think you could build some serious opposition was mentioned in cinema with right would have to be end date that he faster they be facing tremendous pressure from conservative groups. Groups like ours to say you know what, take a stand here. You can't say your support of the second limit and then go for the lifetime support was sort of like that's the kind of issue I think it would take to build a groundswell support. Of course, will it go through this process we talked about the difference of judicial philosophy difference in our judicial philosophy between probably anyone that that present definitely between the with the present Biden will choose to pick but but ultimately I think to derail a domination to derail number Cavanaugh was derail note was nasty, but rarely Barrett and they were after not rail. In fact, it was done that when the cliff is that confirmations history. But you know any and thinking about it here because it rose decided and throws out that takes a big contentious issue off the table. This is that if the President nominates someone that has already been confirmed recently like Sorensen absent something just out of the box.

The President nominates with the advice and consent. It advice and consent of the Senate, the persons confirmed and they have 50 votes in the Senate. Plus, the tiebreaker being vice President right and I think were either always going to be wallowing arose going to be decided before the court rises and that's always a question that is being asked by senators of nominees. It's going to be a nonissue. Analyze the nominee stubs hotel because it's going to be an African-American woman is the President of promise and she has been recently.

Confirm and I'm talking about judge picked Angie Jackson why think is going to be the nominee. Then she's in.

She just went to confirmation to get it would have to be remember we try to be real realistic in Circuit Court nominees were certain level and just because she just with the coverage gap. It should make it easier, but that doesn't mean that same kind of thinking is been done on speeches on remarks on on you know if you if you made some remark on microphone, some conference about your view of the second. I think those kind issues where there is a constitutional right is clear and useful. You have a far left view of that that I think that that's that's what you're looking for when you do this research work will gotta be doing that research at the ACLJ and and I think also divides up another issue. Biden as the progresses, I think actually have probably more of a chance to see sink any of these nominees then the right because they develop more power inside the Democrat party force the conservative they I think hold the most power in the sampling process.

He's got a clear whether this is through them breath think they could just cause serious trouble you write back on secular taking phone calls or call 100-684-3110 only one. A society can agree that the most vulnerable and is there any hope for that culture to survive.

Thank you. Well, this is the perfect time to stand with us ACLJ.where you can learn more about her life changing, member today ACLJ back to secular. We are to your phone calls as well. I want to let you know I present Biden for his twitter account just tweeted the per se nominates replace Justice Breyer will be someone with extraordinary qualifications, character, experience, integrity did confirm this and they will be the first black woman nominated to the US supreme court so any of those people thought that maybe he's not 100% of that hundred percent on that. He also said in a conference give a timeframe listlessly that for me with the potential nominees is my intention.

My intention to announce my decision before the end of February. I have made no choice at this point that puts it in a van that put somebody out a long time before their confirmation. It does J, I mean like I don't think I could be wrong on this, but I don't think Dick Durbin will call hearings until the court recess is for the summer so that would mean hearings would begin until June So February to do what's that for months, that's a long time.

Jamie, did you have to make the rounds.

That's a long time for a record to be scrutinized. It was just me, but that it will take, but that is a you know in litigation like that's a that's in a trial. That's a lifetime. It is a lifetime formatted in a trial is a lifetime.

Sometimes for hours is an eternity. But four months is a long time.

That's why think it's going to be someone who has already been considered by the Senate approved and confirmed the news got that potential behind them and that's why it's the candidate that I thought and I and I probably still think that that going to be who it is her answer the phone show into the sea online to hey Jim like my call. My question is opinion of many of the conservatives that Chief Justice Roberts means to the left times and we know that this Biden appointee will will make it through most likely make Biden's appointment will affect Chief Justice Roberts attitude and the way he decides and how he reached court have a major impact. In fact, you have the exact opposite impact of what they want their input in a very progressive left way left of center justice to the sprinkling I states John Roberts is not is not a moderate John Robert conservative he he is a conservative in the mold of John Roberts is not Antonin Scalia is not. Alito and Thomas.

He's John Robert more times than not, he is conservative. His will is not always, but more times than not having said that they gotta be careful Bittman that distilled the look.

The last President selected three Supreme Court nominees and got them confirmed this is pretty much the Supreme Court look at the ages. Now most of the justices so you know you got justices in their 60s and one justice in the 60s a couple in the early 70s. Everybody else is in there 50s, late 40s 50s so these justices are around for long time when this court can get close again on ideological judicial philosophies point of left right would be if there was a retirement of two of the conservative justices were illness or something like that which it was on any of them and so that's the only time that you really see this in play. I don't think it impacts John Roberts in that in that regard. I really don't.

I have folks I get to take a full house 100-684-3110 at 2006 849 and on the court right so yeah, he's deep. These are again big decisions to make. There is a whole group or we we talked about Judge Jackson but that there there are others, of itself in the present bites is a made a decision yet.

He judged axes that leading pic but you could be surprised this process Leandra Kruger. She's on the California Supreme Court which I fed her yesterday. She also clerked for Justice Breyer turned down some federal appointments, including a solicitor Gen. so may have wanted to stay in California if you think about her. So what had no California legal experience know you have pointed to the California Street right shows as laterally away on these. We talked with those nominations that you have to be a specific type of lawyer have judicial right right Joe Biden at the prayer at the Justice Breyer press are just a few moments ago they glistened number 55, let me say a few words about the critically important work of selecting success. Choosing some of the citizens. Supreme Court I believe is one of the most serious constitutional responsibility. President has our process is going to be rigorous. I will select the nominee worthy of Justice Breyer's legacy of excellence and decency: studying candidates backgrounds and writings I've made no decision except one person I will nominate some of the extraordinary qualifications character, experience and integrity.

That person will be the first black woman ever nominated to United States Supreme Court. There you have any laid out is the presently data structure which constitutionally.

He has the authority Andy to do under the Constitution, he makes the select absolutely go.

The President makes the decision. The President makes the nomination with the advice and consent of the Senate. There is no filibuster. It's a majority vote. It's very simple and he has the right to do it justice President from at the right to nominate the three nominees.

The nominated and they got confirm Pres. Biden is going to have the same privilege and there's no question about it. Then there was an article in Time magazine just to see how the republics could somehow block this nominee through some parliamentary moves. I read it. I was not persuaded. What's your sense yeah not persuaded either. Jay had there was an agreement between leader Schumer and leader McConnell on how they were going to conduct power-sharing in the Senate Judiciary Committee and essentially what that article argued is underneath that power-sharing agreement. If the committee is deadlock that the nominee would be kicked to the Senate floor and they would require a cloture vote. It is 60 vote threshold, but Jake I meet.

We know this.

The only thing it takes to lower a culture threshold is 50 votes of the United States Senate, and now that that has already been the threshold for three Republican nominees to the Supreme Court. I just don't think there's any way in the world leader.

Schumer is innocent except a 60 vote threshold for Supreme Court nominee from the President of his party.

I don't think he would stand for that gesturing there looking at really very difficult. The Democrats looking very difficult midterm election right mean you very difficult. Yes, Google is the house.

This is probably an egg chance they could lose the Senate very good chance of how to use this to bolster their help, but it say it's it takes news, takes up a lot of news. We have the hearing thinks of you know it, so it will likely be a waiver present by the sense that he will likely get is nominee through outside some wild circumstances like Ruth was talking about. But what they forget that the people don't like to abide. This will and his his his philosophy, the Democrat, liberal philosophy, progressive philosophy is to put that progressive philosophy on display. So for all the conservatives out there who don't hit stand that the CRT of this philosophy and whoever he picks this group is can be very liberal.

They are put on display even sounds more liberal than him, and so I think it actually will fire up conservatives in the in the one issue he has.

It should be a positive form should help stem some bleeding but as long as you got hundred dollar gap to fill up your get your your car inflation covariate are my kids going to school today because the teachers are that if teachers guess what Supreme Court nominee takes really a backseat to those kind of major issues you crave in the Russian-made and Ukraine violence being killed sovereign borders, you know, and the force of violence in an privacy Arab country. Plus he's gotta watch out for this his own party, which is been taken over by the far left this person is a is a middle-of-the-road kind of nominee doesn't talk the way they like. They may be the ones trying to take out this nomination. Even while the person is already testifying because they don't like the answers that I think is aptly through paper for the last two days of the month of January or help us meet our goal go to ACLJ.org online support makes a huge difference ACLJ.org ACLJ is been on the frontline protecting your freedom is defending your rights in court in Congress and in the public arena.
