President Joe Biden delivered his first State of the Union address last night. Many Americans hoped to hear how the Administration is going to stop Putin and his war against Ukraine. What did President Biden focus on? Surprisingly, he actually parroted many conservative talking points instead. Jay, Jordan, Logan, and the rest of the Sekulow team give their takes on Biden's State of the Union address. This and more today on Sekulow.

Using state of the union secure the border police talk about that more today. Nobody wants to phone the police, knowing that secure the border and fix our broken immigration system. They tell us how you would get that done with Democrats in his party.

No who cheered for that Republicans is about the only I wouldn't call a bipartisan moment. He was just getting stalking Republican talking points with no behind know how you get to do that when you got your party that wants to define the police in your party that wants to keep the border open again just words present. Biden had a unique opportunity did not live. Every President gets stating union.

Most estate union addresses. To be honest with you are born they are kind of perfunctory. They go through what they've accomplished what they want to accomplish. But there are moments in time in history, especially wartime.

When present in this unique object is are not just addressing the American people present. By last night knew going into this and his advisors that Ukrainians are watching the people Ukrainian Pres. Putin in the Kremlin said he would be rude go through the read out of it.

So he knew he had that audience and the Russian people their audience. Europe plus America and the Chinese are watching what were doing with Ukraine because of what they want to do in Taiwan and what you do.

He spent a few minutes at the beginning of the state of the union acknowledging the Ukrainian investor to the US. That's nice, but announcing no new moves, no real threats, never calling out Hooton directly never calling out again saying how bad it is how great Ukrainians are fought back but not living the reality that Russia right now is carpet bombing Ukraine.

These cities barely exist anymore. This government will fall if if things remain the same. And why can't he get Europeans to take out that convoy without the US unbeliever having to do everything. So again he failed. That's all. The entire state of the union was a failure on every point because that his aspirations were all voted on and voted down, even by members of his own party by Joe mansion to all that stuff that great step free this free that free that you think the Republicans when they take back the house are living in a sin that to the Senate which will also be Republican-controlled. No please try to hoodwink the American people a time when inflation is high and people are freaked by the Kobe does exist for them anymore. That was nice. Messy except for their staff's assistance, which we talked about throughout, but think about this type world war in the world war in Europe teetering on world war talks of nuclear and he's what he spent most of his time on the parts to build a better reading it past you know I think it was a total payable thing I bought loan was state of use must be a rallying moment a confidence building measure. It was not a lot of false hopes and dreams and maybe just their cousin stumbles through different things throughout the entire speech. Again, compare this to maybe the 20/20 would remove the last normal state of the union gets at least we had eye which was sort of the pomp and circumstance. Pres. Trump one with the Tuskegee airmen and Rush Limbaugh and all that. That's really the only honestly of all, the stadium is only what I can even really recall.

They'll even edit some of the guys a been there forever like to look at a blur together that he will remember from last night.

A lot of concepts without a lot of action will also really remember is that the Russian Ukraine crisis was just essentially added to the script. The first five pages get through that and go back. Probably what was that script that is been written for about sounds really interesting to see not a huge pivot from what was probably good to be the trick the speech that we all can needed during wartime.

All right, what will be back in just a moment, you can give us call would love to hear your thoughts on the state of the union. That's at 1-800-684-3110, 1-800-684-3110. I'm sure you've got a lot to say and we want to hear the American Center for Law and just before engaging in cool issues at home and abroad. Whether it's defending religious freedom. Protecting those who face covering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy fighting to protect life in the courts and in Congress ACLJ for that an opportunity for you to help in any way. $20, $50 gift becomes 100 constitutional and religious freedoms are most important to you and your family.

You forgive today only one. A society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice is, is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life.

We created three 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 sealed cases secure means to serve the many ways your membership powering the right/secular to the more surprising lines to cruises saving and sharing that. I think if you're watching my said, I agree with that except for believing I should do anything about this because they were like throwaway lines to conservatives because they were they were literally one sentence. Here's Biden on the police by 23.

We should all agree the answer is not to define the police as to son Joe Biden is this will police prolong order candidate God present as you think you sound like a candidate actually is what it did remind me of the fact of the matter is, candidate for high school principal or Pres. like a get an extra recess when I have candy for free.

That's what felt like again savings to get a prescription drug free prescription drug market sentiment no idea I show how we get is a wonder just what they were all nice things could be great, except for there's no explanation how to get that this is one explanation that would be going with his you know fund the police and you know secure the borders and immigration reform that sounds great now were in favor of funding. The police were in favor of obscuring the border and were in favor of immigration from you could say all of those things.

Meanwhile, over in Europe there is a war between Russia and Ukraine and we talk about these unbelievably tough sanctions with this work. Joe Biden is responsible. The present United States tough sanctions on Russia except we exempted out their energy transactions so they can sell oil guess who's buying that oil barrels of oil, 600,000 to 800,000 a day.

The United States of America Joe Biden closed down the XL pipeline closed it down.

It would've produced 830,000 barrels a day. When is somebody to say it is your policies that have allowed Vladimir Putin to do exactly what he's doing and it's really getting it bad over there folks in the next day's really bad already as it significantly worse than it was even 24 hours ago as a UN has voted to censure Russia and that's breaking now and that that's unique because there are a lot of UN member states that would be persuaded by China and Russia and would not be considered part of the West, so the things they take that step that sentence that the really mean anything. What is it mean for human race and it's kind like a resolution, Congress it's a desert, but it's a step forward in the potential war crimes. So if you are devoted to censure when this conflict is over and Vladimir Putin and others could be charged with crimes against humanity other war crimes because the targeting of civilians.

These, the cluster bombs a music etc. and we don't know how bad it will get this just what's happened so far and you would then need a general assembly because neither Russia nor Ukraine a part of the international criminal court. The general silhouette actually vote to send it to the ICC.

This vote is important for that purpose of ultimately holding the Russian aggressors accountable.

We already are team our international team is already looking at the possibility that a referral from wheel wielding the general jurisdiction as we don't believe there's universal jurisdiction with the ICC on nonmember states Russian and Ukrainian. Neither one of which are members of the profession was a nice day for the general assembly can make a referral of what's interesting here loving you. So what's the significance of it.

The significance of it. It's telling Vladimir Putin. He is isolating himself from the rest of the world now is acting to stop him from what is doing Ukraine right now as I look at the pictures. I don't think it stops them, but it does send a message, but we have to toughen up the sanctions work we have to bring the Russian economy to its knees. Literally, we need to see a financial collapse in Russia. You will see if that happens I think this is at least it's a step at a look. Everyone's kind of debated even with our own staff here were all a bit split on what the next steps should be what we do need to do.

How far do you go to escalate this and it's a tough time people see these images just like they did Afghanistan, which by the way got your reference during the state of the union. Maybe the biggest blunder mistake ANR lifetime. Not a reference and you wheel we've produced your that we produced a film series audit and the President didn't even put into a sentence in the speech, but people see the imagery that's coming out of Ukraine and the American people that want help.

They want to do something they don't just want to sit around and say oh it's so bad. You see, everyone sitting in there last night. Speech with her Ukrainian flags and you wonder how much is just virtue, signaling, and how much is real and you want to be able to really step up when you need to and what that means is his very different.

It can mean many different things that why what I am okay to use on this UN vote just so people understand the kind of depth was 141 to 5 with 35 extension so that means in the future if there is a vote on sending that to the ICC. It was that the votes are there, which means Russia's loss lot influence as well as China on these atrocities that would be a much more serious about it would be a lot of work a lot more different differently than this censure vote you out. I wouldn't say it's a guarantee that it does, but it certainly shows that the world is moving like logo saying they're not exactly sure what to do. Everybody in the world. But they know there's a note letting them know they are gonna be just giving Russia passing this varies would've been fairly quiet, kind of like will be by predict which was the rolling with a little violence in not take over the government. I don't think you would give these folks even at you and I know it was Venkat of units, an interesting commentary, though also on presence eludes him want to get Logan's comments on this because as a guy that was a lawyer by training, by the way, and practice law. He was a he was an entertainer and his ability to communicate I think is done. The Ukrainian people a tremendous benefit. Yeah, everyone is very very pro Ukraine around the world assure there's issues with Ukraine you can go into those medieval art because it doesn't matter they're not seeing the killing of children from the other side from Ukraine.

So clearly there is a notices of good and bad. There certainly bad and way worse in the way worse is certainly the fact that Russia has gone and in done this so much so that you saw political commentators yesterday not questioning the health and well-being of Vladimir Putin and from Pelosi and Rubio both of them were saying we think something is dramatically was regulated to with this guy because he is changed so dramatically in his tone and rhetoric over the last few months that what could possibly have a lot of speculation but I don't know partners feel like the guys a dictator and eventually these guys get this way you will need to certainly unite think he always was KGB trained KGB were to take phone calls, one 800 684 31 tenure reaction of the state of the union message reaction to the state of the world right now will take your calls and 800 684 31 to me an interesting already coming in. Let take it David is calling for Marilyn David Marilyn are there. Why not go near their line. Okay, why weren't UN peacekeeping troops not sent him a month or two ago. What happened to the UM and why can't they be sent in now and marched right up to the borders of the two providences moved to provinces that are said to be Russian music, UN peacekeeping troops when you usually have either a resolve situation that cease-fires are cease-fire they going to put to protect AC stuck in a hole the cease-fires they go into the no man's land area between like if you if it was Russian Ukraine see go into the no man's land and remain a buffer zone, and they put troops there. There's job is to monitor both the troop movements on both sides and to make sure because their arm didn't and they are troops that if someone tries to be aggressive to prevent that from happening, but ultimately you know that those peacekeepers unfortunately not in the DCF have tough situations if war breaks out, they move out to me is that that their job is not to stop worth one side starts going full full speed. At the end. So this is not the situation with that they would be prepared to go it ultimately profit maybe if there's pastry but there has to be some kind of cease-fire Italy asked the other end of history.

The other aspect of this ignoring into later. The broadcast is the whole NATO aspect of this and that is if NATO country were to send in troops. That's not an attack that will be distilled same pole and said you know we got in.

This is getting out of hand. More the country being involved. That's different than an attack on one is an attack on all the there's a whole dispute about how that would actually plant plan output to the possibility of escalation here is really serious in my view, because I think Vladimir Putin is in a corner and he's got this big convoy on the how they can take that convoy out of it if it's me it's mind-boggling to me but maybe stop we just don't know but that's what's concerned but was no confidence that you don't like personalities like my report getting backed into a corner because if you can't indwell it doesn't end well so that is honestly a big concern is much different, so we'll see what happens with that. But you're right it was a tacked on part of the speech, the beginning talk about Ukraine moved on to other things moved on to the border, moved on to the police here saves all that we have to do for the board gets around lost innovation.

Meantime, the Democrats are blocking for an offer being rescheduled to a drug that matters is aware.

Everyone sees through it. People throwing stuff at their television because they know what they're saying is just certainly not true as you even have the other outlets, not just a conservative news outlet before the speech going once again to say how thinking to make anyone feel better and that we know he didn't know he did not and he said what he did was he squandered his best opportunity to look like a President like commander-in-chief of the most powerful country in the world and to address our country and the world. There's a people really watching Ukraine you with immediate response was, that's not what they wanted to hear that.

I know that they may want something so we don't even want to do a didn't feel like that was any had a confidence building, and in any kind of threat to Vladimir either so internationally. The speech was panned domestically by the way having they were Democrats. Bocce commenting after they were like trying to find something about refinancing.

Everyone said this joint only one.

A society can agree the most vulnerable invoice is, is there any hope for that culture to survive.

And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life, 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 sealed cases.

McKiernan means to as many ways your membership abuse you powering the right/the American Center for Law and Justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad. Whether it's defending religious freedom.

Protecting those who face covering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy fighting to protect life and the court seen in Congress. ACLJ to support for that is an opportunity for you to help in any way. $20, $50 gift becomes 100 constitutional and religious freedoms are most important to you and your family.

You forgive today to secular.

We are a tearful close to 164 3110 about working to get to some of the NATO talk last night by present by because he got real emotional and intense about that except for Ukraine's on the NATO member, other countries that Russia might want to look to next are also not NATO members.

Yet there are some down the line that did against smaller NATO countries like Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, but we even saw Lukashenko from Belarus. He was giving them a presentation about the Russian invasion with maps and on the map he had mulled over Mark. So the question is, is that the next place they want to go. Which by the way, borders Ukraine and is not a member of NATO, so would not invoke article 5 I want to take Linda's coffin to the ceiling to get into more the NATO issue by thinking and tickling the first hail and welcome to secular you're on the will protecting my collar away from last night that I'd like to hear you guys have to think lion was when he said that you cannot build a wall high enough and then he stopped and then referred to those that I thought that was anything I say is word and then secondly something that bothered me for a long time is that at the end of every speech he only said God bless our troops. He never said countless American military like debates going on, you know, here's the thing that Lynn did it appreciate your call book. There's a lot we could take a park here when I'm worried about right now and I asked Col. Smith this is you heard the speech and will only one plaintiff let's play the this is the this is the NATO statement from Joe Biden legislator site seven are not gay and will not engage in a conflict of Russian forces in Ukraine are forces not going to Europe to fight Ukraine to defend our NATO allies event of food and decide to keep moving west for that purpose, we mobilize American ground forces air squadrons ship deployments to protect NATO countries including Poland and Romania, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia and as I made crystal clear the United States and our allies will defend every inch of territory that is NATO territory great. We will go to defend this but as I talked to Col. Smith.

When we were in a radio print meeting.

This means that American troops if this were to happen potable and everybody understand this would be shooting at Russian troops and vice a versa. Yeah, and if you not talk this when I went back and little more research on that article 5 of the native charters only been invoked once that was on September 13, two days after we were attacked, but you go back and you read the article and what it says is that you're an attack on one is an attack on all. However, each ally is responsible for deterrent for determining what it deems necessary to respond in an attack. It doesn't but not all automatically include military force. Interesting enough. Also, the pew research foundation did a poll would do you think you should include military force. This is done before you are Ukraine was invaded 40% of German said yes military force, 53% of Brits and 53% of the French only 62% of Americans said that should include military force to the bottom line.

James you and I talked earlier, it is not a given that military forces would be sent and is not a given that all 30 NATO countries would agree to do that and it's certainly not a given that it would be popular how in America. How do you how do you control if there was an incursion into even posed by general going rogue Russian military leader going wrong. How do you control a military conflict at that point tween United States military and the Russian military think you do. I think what he says will fund you your peers or fight your battles and yet I forget how to determine Hyundai native agenda in their X-rated Russians like you and I talked early. It could mean World War III and the use of some point of nuclear weapons. I mean this is I know she will night and I know this is contrary. But I do not see now sending American troops. I think you did Estonia think what you take to defend yes but not to you.

Kate I think you take what Wester said what we can do is provide unbelievable support financially militating to go die for their country's that this is not doesn't have to become World War III if they're unwilling to do that in their countries fall behind Geiger. His were not. That's where we are right now it's they can provide him with every weapon much better than we did in Ukraine because these are NATO allies again F 35 think they could pose a real threat, but they have to be willing to die for their country send their sons and daughters to go die for their countries freedom if they're unwilling to do it with all the support we can give them why do we have to send our guys to do it for them when we heard from again. We heard from a lot of our friends in these regions. They have no militaries that's their problem.

The rich countries unwilling to spend on firepower right know that you know where the line we finally say okay we do have to step in the office.

We did it with God enough to decide, okay, so what, what's the definition of genocide and mass mass targeted execution of civilians like concentrations and start leveling Ukraine.

This is not anything but decided to work but also because they had so much time to leave well.

Article 6 the following article in the new charter actually defines what is considered an attack and is an attack on territory is an attack on forces vessels or aircraft of any of the NATO countries. It does not spell out anything other than an armed attack for minute is in Washington, New York, here in Washington you wouldn't equip you, and in New York just voted surprisingly did I mean I was surprised here to help. Tell us what happened here. Yeah, this is a pretty overwhelming vote in NJ. Typically, if Russia were to be condemned or censored, which by the way, it's almost never any country other than Israel but suffer a center but it was Russia. This time, and typically their dominance in providing energy in multiples of the segments of the world would mean that they would win a vote like this J but were on the floor of the Gen. assembly because Russia blocked the resolution at the Security Council on Friday.

Jenny just took the vote in 141 members of the hundred and 93 members of the Gen. assembly voted to condemn this invasion. There were only five that voted no.

Was Belarus North Korea Eritrea Russia and Syria now 33 did abstain, but Jake is quickly doing the math, you need two thirds to pass a resolution like this so they needed somewhere around 120 vote vote. They got 141, and J. Interestingly enough, Switzerland voted yes they almost never do that for something like this in China abstained China not stating actually is is so is almost a competent West.

As you look at right now militarily what is look like in the next couple of days. Say what you know, Ukraine is pushing for us to to provide a no-fly zone over the country. I think that is that is a no go. That means that our US pilots would be countering Russian pilots in helicopters and fixed wing aircraft over Ukraine.

I think Ukrainians are holding on by the skin of their teeth. I am proud of what you're doing unless the world stepped in with more. Really sanctions that have real teeth and then that include Russian energy energy which right now does not elicit happens. Ukraine will ultimately fall.

We hope that doesn't happen Jordan. If if it does include Russian energy, their country will follow up Russia will fall apart and it will be in serious financial doesn't clue if it does include a few dozen could see right now. This is the big scam being pulled on the American people as we think we've done these unbelievable sanctions on Russia.

What that's that sexy hernias were the Russian people.

The leaders in Russia. So long as they can sell their gas with providing still in an oil guess what that that's that that's 1/3 of their economy.

Is that so as long as that is okay to stop the invasion into Ukraine to lighten up. No folks, we got all these experts get all this information of ACLJ that are where we are involved you indirectly consider NGO status.

You can support the work of ACLJ. We have a matching challenge right now, you double the impact your donation throughout the month of March. Donate back the American Center for Law and critical issues at home and abroad for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ matching challenge for every dollar you donate, it will be $10 becomes $20, $50 gift becomes 100 protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms most important to you and your family. You forgive today online keeping you informed and now is secular to secure your photos to one 800 684 31 two that's one 808 fourth 110 what your thoughts we know your audience that the subject is this really what I want to speechless. Save these clips, decedent something will break it down for you as well. This is state of the union that gave prison by the opportunity to speak to the world they were tuning in. That's not common only in times of war, usually so the world was tuning in, Ukrainians, Ukrainian President, the Russians potent the Europeans are allies and of course the American people.

Most importantly, he spends about 10 minutes talking about Ukraine. The beginning but gets to know resolution about what were actually going to do or has he gotten Europe to decide to do anything outside of the US to better secure the Ukrainians who are being having the cities leveled as we speak right now and again. This idea you know he was as fervent about defending NATO countries as he was about not sending US troops into Ukraine.

You know I II do soup agree with that. I just wonder this seems like there's a build up here to war and he's saying that now he's waiting for something to happen that they would be as are fructose together like say this military-industrial complex likes to would seize on is a reason why to say you know what nevermind we had a go and you will. This is the end of the great concern here. We we were in a word, very animated on this because we have offices around the globe at the American Center for Law and Justice. We are very active at the United Nations in the year ahead two years and we have a lot more active up there over there in a parent and the fact of the matter is I think we have to be clear here in West Col. Smith and the last thing we gave a no percentages on the pupil of Americans lesson was a lesson with about 40% supporting sending US troops to defend the NATO country if attacked.

During took the meal and I think I and I agree with that is I would find the Europeans as much as they needed. I get them as much ammo as I near went to a church church was begging in World War II for the United States to send the ammunition to send the ships ascended the finances. I won't make the Europeans beg for it. I would say listen at your war working upon you every way we can. The days of the United States going in and just doing this, especially when you're looking at the photo is Russia that is a big big deal. So the question is to the President of the United States you're talking really tough except work taking an 800,000 barrels of Russian oil a day in the United States a day in your closed the pipeline that would've allowed us to produce 830,000 barrels a day. So were monster energy independence at a time when Russia aggressions is is incredibly on display for the world to see and will I think Ukrainian militaries been very brave and Zelinski's done a great job. We know what were we deal in these regions of the world.

This is not the United States. This is in France or Europe. This is Ukraine I'm praying for those people praying for their leadership but in there and they put up a valiant fight. So far, but Russia has not let yet unleashed their military might and that's where I'm concerned. This holding escalates up out of control and advising that military excuses said one 1001 1000th of what the Russians could release unleash on Ukraine. So when you hear statements like this from the President. Let's play quickly diving from the state of the union. It's it's not a lot of confidence by 32 circle key tanks never gain the hearts and souls of the rating people who never held that freedom and he will never never weaken the resolve of the free world.

So guess what documents the Iranian people, but also target hearts and souls of people that have been killed. They were to be crushed at that point is just giving you To see was ultimately one day there might be a spirit much Ukraine is to take back their home but what kind of it already. If you really listen to it. It's like it's over already and and that is not inspiring to Ukrainians who are just looking for more military assistance, you know, there's a Europe European countries voluntarily into this that invoking NATO and they can go in to the no-fly zone they got the plane to give them that if they're not willing to do it their own, their own continent and the American Center for Law and just before engaging solutions at home and abroad. Whether it's defending religious freedom. Protecting those who face covering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy fighting to protect life in the courts and in Congress ACLJ to support for that opportunity for you to help in the way. $20, $50 gift becomes 100 constitutional and religious freedoms most important to you and you forgive today only one. A society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice is, is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice defending the rights of life, we created three powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn is called mission will show you how you are personally sealed secure means to the many ways your membership. Lowering the right/secular joy right now by Congressman Gary LaHood from Illinois 18th initial district Congressman LaHood. We appreciate be aware this that you serve in the house Intel committee use a you were at the state of the union. Let me just ask Eddie put out a statements about the state of the union.

A lot of failed policies already in it.

I thought it was his unique opportunity for present United States because they don't always get this Congressman where it's not just the American people that might be tuning in, but Vladimir Putin, the Russian people Ukrainian people Ukrainian President and our European allies. What did you take from the state of the union last night a personal thing to have me on to be with you and your listeners a couple things that I thought you know is beginning of the union talking about Ukraine I thought was pretty good on being united supporting Zelinski supporting the Ukrainian people. I don't that was good. Obviously, 90% of the speech was based on domestic policy and I think it was a lot of empty rhetoric. We talked about defunding police meet. Why wasn't he mentioned that two years ago when BLM was burning down federal buildings and desecrating them and committing crimes. So it's a little hard to listen to that talking about, you know, securing the southern border, you know, his rhetoric hasn't matched any of that.

You know he Torah President trumps Mexico contractual obligation on day one. He's continued to do everything to keep the border open so listen. I'm all for being united on Ukraine. I think there's many events that want to be there on that.

I thought that was positive but you know in terms of the state of our union when it comes to our domestic policy.

It is very very weak like to talk about the go back to Ukraine for moment were still importing from Russia, a 600,000 800,000 barrels of oil a day.

Now here's what is mind-boggling to me. If we are really trying to put on sanctions that really matter in court the President President. I enclose down the pipeline that would produce 830,000 barrels a day here United States if we were really trying to do crippling sanctions and that's the word that everybody likes to use. You would think one would think that we would stop taking their royal which is what's popping their economy up right now which is in real trouble and probably would bring it to its knees.

What you're exactly right on that we are giving every single day on those 600,000 barrels of oil were getting $75 million a day that goes directly into its coffers mean that's actually ridiculous, but that could happen tomorrow, it can happen on Friday.

It can happen on Saturday. We have the ability to shut that off now. I to your point yet where we can make up those 500 600,000 barrels a barrel. I mean, this should been thought about a year ago or two years ago when Biden came in initially 14 months ago and shut down the Keystone pipeline on day one should been thought about when we had energy and independence under present truck but clearly that wasn't thought of and so were NetWare amoebae and put us in a very very tough spot because we cut out that oil gas prices to skyrocket and but it in some ways cutting up at $75 million from who I think is worth doing, but because there was a lot of forethought that went into this and a lot of planning were left with again decisions being made by Biden that put us in a very tough spot this year so the house Intel committee indicates your classified information that you been getting a lot of briefings of a lot of reasons. Remember the Congress on those committees and the American people. I think they see the image that he Ukraine they do understand how horrific it is, there is still I think it's not even fair to say division about whether American support engaging in a no-fly zone, which is like getting into war, but they certainly are bit confused.

Where are your colleagues right now where you and your colleagues right now when it comes to further assistance. Ukraine well we hear a lot of we hear a lot about lethal weapons and getting them to Ukraine. Her great javelins are great assault weapons are fine when we had when they have to face that might in the power of Russia. Unfortunately, those are going to work until Loretta real inflection point J on what we do if we went had some expense and insight and what it planned accordingly and been doing things a year ago we could give me a Black Hawk helicopter. Right now there's nobody in Ukraine to comply Black Hawk helicopter giving a missile defense system. I'm sorry patriot missile defense systems to stop the missiles from coming into Russia they don't have those looking at further high capacity drones and UAVs. They don't have the capacity to apply those and then looking at the old course at but none of those can be flown by anybody in Ukraine right elsewhere in a tough spot and so it's it's what is NATO going to do to step up.

What else can we do to give them the firepower that they need and frankly J that really concerns me. I know a look at passing a package next week it's going to continue to give more weapons, but you know what what were up against with Russia is that you know it's it's very very difficult to overcome, with what Ukraine has right now to go to a domestic dispute for moment because the President mentioned securing the border and fixing the immigration situation. United States now.

I got working on this for 30 years in the border was being secured in the previous administration, and in present binding stop that some try to figure out Congressman of your colleagues who was he talking to hear well you know that it's an election year and he knows he's on the wrong side of the American people on this by a large margin.

I mean J you look at we were letting in 400,000 people a month. Last summer I mean absolutely crazy people blatantly violating the law. We had the lowest levels of immigration on our southern border. Under present trump under the policy that you and lots of others were engage with because we work with the Mexicans we work that Central American company country we got it under control. You know, we worked on the border wall. We worked with our border patrol agent that worked. Supporting the rule of law work, his rhetoric last night. I don't believe one word of it. I think it's because he knows he's in a very, very difficult election cycle and he so far underwater in the polls domestically and in it again. I don't think you'll see any stop policies put forth, or any changes in terms of what he's doing at 740 to go against his radical socialist left. He spoke to these kind of empty issues. Issues that Hardy failed in Congress. You are devoted down in Congress and for all locations.

Looks like there'll be a lot more Republicans in the house serving with you in a majority and likely the Senate as well and yet present.

Biden went back to basically go back better. He didn't say build back better, but it was the parts of bill back better than a party failed in Congress. What I mean when you when I talk to people in Peoria, Illinois where I represent mean they can't believe the high cost of paying their electric bill on the car up with gas going to buy groceries.

It's crazy and so the way you would get what you fix that issue stop spending money we spent $7 trillion of taxpayer money in the last two years that deficit spending so much money/or on the economy. I know that's what leading to inflation and supply chain issues and not getting people to work. We distance the device people work I need to stop anybody but to your point J what he talked about last night more government programs, raising the minimum wage, more government programs for healthcare more when it comes to education taxing businesses and corporations going the wrong way that exacerbate all of these things that are driving inflation and unfortunately we have to capital I should say fortunately we as Republicans have to capitalize on this election year and make sure that we rub his nose in it was 18th congressional district. Thanks so much for joining us your thoughts on the state of the union as you as you attended and because your role that house Intel committee.

I know all that information Ukraine that you shared the people are just want this kind information. I appreciate you I join this Congressman was correct to fund 100-684-3110 Tim in Virginia on line 1 a Tim Jordan, a nice talking to you.

I want to make the American people aware of an agreement that we have with Ukrainians is called Budapest, 1994 memorandum and is filed at the United Nations as a treaty but basically it was a deal brokered by the Clinton Administration for Ukraine to give up over 4000 ICBMs on their soil. In exchange for security promise to buy us in the United Kingdom. In the event that Russia invaded what is happened was, there were opportunities that go into effect under under Pres. Obama and the member 2014.

You also had a safer share the annexation of Crimea they get date they didn't do anything there.

Then in 2014 there is a revolution. Ukraine overthrew the pro-Kremlin government support and said that memorandum now is null and void because the government that signed that agreement is a different is is no longer present. They were thrown out illegally by revolution, not by vote and because of that he doesn't see it as holding any weight on the other hand, the US didn't do anything either so overthrew opportunities to do it right with Crimea and with the Eastern Ukraine invasion.

So with both of those opportunities came for the Obama ministration.

They didn't act so you start not acting on these agreements.

Guess what those agreements become meaningless now is interesting. Ukraine did the nuclear eyes, but if you really want to know the story. There they had no operational control of this goes back to this whole issue over those weapons to Russian nukes.

The Russians had the codes they were just in Ukraine that tells you the partnership. There was one that existed in the post-Soviet world into the 1990s between Russia and Ukraine were Ukrainian nukes that they gave up Russian nukes were decommissioned because Ukrainians had no control over them.

These are all things you need to know as we get deeper and deeper into this, only one.

A society can agree most vulnerable invoice is, is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life, 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 sealed.

McKiernan means to as many ways your membership. Lowering the right/the American Center for Law and engaged in critical issues at home and abroad.

Whether it's defending religious freedom. Protecting those faith covering corruption in Washington fighting to protect the court seen in Congress. ACLJ for that opportunity for you to help in the way.

2001 hundred constitutional and religious freedoms most beautiful gift today to secular 01 for the domestics which I wanted to get to because it feels just absurd and others want to play for you and it was about the US economy and basically a little bit of America first by Joe Biden. We heard from Congressman LaHood talk to everybody in a very tight selection near present by knows that sister throw these keywords out meticulous. Despite this does not sound like the Joe Biden ran for President.

It's certainly design the Democrat party. One way to fight inflation as drive down wages make Americans poor. I think have a better idea to fight inflation, lonelier cost matching wages and he said go to Columbus Ohio there to spin like $20 billion but then he said if you pass legislation so you been working to be spending $20 billion for Intel, or private company rights of these companies will not invest in the US and less we are paying for thoroughly paying a significant formula.

But it was something that they needed something wouldn't do without legislation with tax breaks or others that is going to get Intel's knocking to do that unless we pay for. So that was but that that that's the politics that yesterday we talked of the broadcast was just breaking that there was reports that Ukraine had been granted candidacy status at European Union which would bring in all kind of mutual defense treaties. We got into it. Our team got into it. So anyway, what's the status right now, Percival of Ukraine as they sign the application while the President formally for present Zelinski formally applied to join the European Union and is asked for fast-track admittance due to the Russian invasion would send it. Of course it's seventh day to day what I can report to you is that the European Parliament which is the European Union's legislative branch gave a boost to Ukraine's hopes of one day joining it by urging the leaders to block to date by by voting by 637 to 13 to give recommending that the 27 member nation of the you give the Ukraine candidate status.

They have not yet achieved candidate status decisions on admitting new members to the EU must be taken unanimously by the blog but in any event, but have a plan, national governments, the expectation is that the vote could take place on Friday, which then brings in old it was like a call, but that brings in the whole treaty issues that we talked about in the mutual defense which could complicate it more. Although to Jordan's point maybe gets the Europeans to do what they're supposed to do it. I don't think anybody right now in America would be the's would be against Gordo country like the UK or France or Germany saying here you go is way better weapons go fight the war fighter your people voluntarily enter don't you know that the attack no NATO you go put your troops and you got in a refueling at 20 30,000 acre pilot they have sophisticate five fighter pilot.

They could take out that chit supply chain. They could probably not, but that would mean them dying to protect your not us that we could give them everything they need to do it, but some of them would be killed. They're unwilling to do that was written to let them drag us into being there hammer date. This is not in the since World War II is these are countries that have militaries that have sophisticated aircraft that have sophisticated arms that some have nuclear weapons. The list goes on.

We need to be clear, we need to be clear, we would find and probably support those efforts for them to voluntarily enter the conflict.

But they're not willing to do it. The European not yet. So far they've not been willing to live with brings up an interesting question will take a call among humanity and that is what is the prospects of the assessment unanimously set has to be unanimous.

27 member nations of the European Union have to unanimously vote and when they vote.

They know that that triggers the defendant's right under article 47, 42.7 of the mutual defense because the treaty is triggered. In addition to what's called article 222 the solidarity clause and that includes the implementation of the meters rated military resources made available by the member states negligence.

Talk about Laura in Idaho online to a lot Ukraine quite I think that the friend Oliver Ukraine horrified that likely lacking bully on the playground beat at the kindergartner which standing by him watching and what wet date that a little bedding and Ukraine that the next few days I we get to look the other way. Likely good training and in a cloud" will be go back to bed. Mentally continue buying gasoline. This Laura cleric is trying to get the good winter audiences thinking when would you be in favor of let's say Ukraine unfortunately does fall, so to Russian control and would you want US troops put in to defend okay it's fine I'm a pretty good job but that means you're fighting the Russians at that point US troops to the mighty powers of nuclear powers, staring each other down you you understand learn how that could escalate right very complicated and I think a very creative We could be dealing creative time to get the Europeans you engage this not directly because it's a European war they failed to do this for themselves throughout modern history.

They've always knew the US believe that we back them up with the weapons that we have the capabilities we can we can get it in today that entire Russian convoy to be taken out by a number of different European countries. I would hazard that is unreal voluntarily entering the sea there too afraid to do that because they're not willing to die like Americans are Americans were willing to fight and die for liberty is Europeans have never really been willing to do that. They always needed us to fight their battles that sublets because other countries are smaller like the UK they been willing to fight and die, but there's a small that being said, that being said, they could have the they can have the weapons you have the Jets let them fight the battle and I think that the US complete unbelievable role in backing up the economies of those countries, so I think Jordan is actually right.

We've in the 20th century, twice taken the Europeans lines and save them if you will. In World War I we did that we came into the war with American troops in World War II. We did that when we came in with Americans or the side of the land and there was a lot of it's a different situation, but this is a European war and the Europeans are going to have to step up to the plate and defend themselves and be interesting to see if they do actually on Friday because were used to these wars not try to take away any thing but like where was seen three or 4000 US troops killed over over longer time year. This would be three or 4000 killed the day because you be having countries that both have the mother of all bombs dropping on each of back and forth, back and forth when those drop everyone that surrounded his dead so it would just be a fighter pilot here risking their life or a soldier there you're talking about. Entire infantry divisions. It can be on both sides wiped out by very similar weaponry what the route we have a better ground force the Russians that's been shown now to the world. We have very similar capabilities when it comes to missiles and rockets, and nuclear weaponry. I think that's right and that's fine as many different pray for peace paper for resolution, but folks is not paid by the Royal I know to write raise gas prices for a while. I'd rather do that than sitting Americans into harm's way will be back to normal as the American Center for Law and solutions at home and abroad for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ challenge for every dollar you donate $10 $20 $50 gift becomes 100 protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms to you and your family.
