Questions today on Jay Sekulow on live from Washington DC Judy sent you a line phone lines with your questions right now called 1-800-684-3110.

That's 1-800-684-3110 and now your host secular Jay Sekulow library to be taking your calls to your questions. October the sponsor that the stimulus legislation. Lot of folks got a lot of questions about how this impacts them how it impacts their small business how to pack their church, how it impacts them individually. Now, as these systems are going live tried to again answer your questions because I think everyone of these questions that we answer probably thousands of people have the same question who are listening to the show and there benefiting from you who call in with these questions really talk about that today that really let people understand what Congress and the President has done for them to try to provide relief during such an uncertain time.

Economically, a lot of things we want to accomplish in and really want to do here and this is a big part of what were doing is worth putting a lot of time answering questions because legislations can be confusing announcing it's going into effect and people start to see the benefit of it and there may be another one, we that we may be faced where you may need to be. So we want to make that as an available resource to our members from around the country that people are: with knees were trying to to answer those questions forthright look that we we spent time last week talking about politics that up some of this, but today were really focusing on the questions that you have in fact for most of this week we are going to be going right into Good Friday out we are going to be focusing on questions that you all have asked because I think it's good information to get out to the American people right now and obviously you know hopefully will be any kind of drinks in the system or clanks and you know there could be, but I do feel like more than I do feel like the government is really ready deliver on this when I can have like that Obama care meltdown. We had during the rollout of Obama care, that would certainly not be very good and so far, doesn't there be happening now, but again people are just going to be.

I think people are also going to just still our understanding what they could qualify for and I I've see this in the past through these let this logic kind of legislation where a lot of people who were qualified for relief and needed it didn't take it because they didn't know they were qualified or didn't know how it would be available to them. So what were to try to do through this broadcast is make sure you know what you could be eligible for and remember this is this are your dollars taxpayer dollars that are coming to save your business save your employees save yourself in some cases, make sure you can pay your bills and you are entitled to them as the American if you qualify, so you should do everything possible to check to see if you are that some of the baseline numbers are pretty easy. We'll talk about that about who's qualified was after the stimulus checks. Those are pretty easy for the house extended unemployment that assisted deployment out of limits. Very broad doubt and it's over people who bathe out of qualified a week and 1/2 ago. You may now fight now. So where to answer all that out for you because we know so be questions that are becoming into the broadcast.

And I know for every single person who has that question who gets on the air that were answer get for 10,000 or 20,000 more pavements who didn't get on the radio broadcast or who might now know hey that relief could be available to be looked so we want to provide this is a service to you so I know this week. The numbers of fatalities are going to go up every day and rather than in your getting that from a lot of new sources but I really think what we think we need to do this week is answer your questions that were lawyers, government affairs folks were not medical doctors obviously were praying for better outcomes and in less fatalities and as we did last week and up right but we really want to spend the week. I wanted to two things this week answers many questions we can answer where to place some of the broadcast that we previously done that answer some of these questions were in a public place of the interview from some of the government leaders to so you can hear from them what they're doing. So there's some encouragement out here in what is going to be a very difficult difficult week and we encourage as well as always to stay updated with us in ACLJ.or that's ACLJ.or stamped it with all the cases all the work we've got going on that's ACLJ.or will be right back on Jay Sekulow live is a critical time for our nation and our world with so many challenges facing our country.

Every dollar makes a difference stand with the ACLJ today so online ACLJ Jay Sekulow Liber to your phone calls 164 3110.

Let me update you though a new emergency amicus brief ACLJ is finally just remind you that the work of the ACLJ continues on in protecting life, the Fifth Circuit temporarily uphold upheld the Texas elective abortion ban.

More states are putting this in place as they decide what businesses are essential and what are not.

Texas is one of the first day to say abortion clinics are not essential to have elective abortions will be been told to put off any kind of elective procedure reason yes because a cobra 19 right Planned Parenthood fought this they wanted the District Court.

They have lost so far they got it at a hold now Texas is allowed to keep these clinics closed at the Fifth Circuit and we had our team emergency file obviously love all this is being done electronically in accordance right now. But as Jordan said, the District Court ruled against the state of Texas, the Fifth Circuit issued a temporary ruling affirming what the state of Texas did. By having this closing is because this is elective and also this way provides all of the necessary emphasis on the crowbars in Texas is going to be. Is there some Dallas and Houston are to be hotspots in this so it was the right but it's a temporary ruling so our team was able to add that I keep telling the work of ACLJ's what's going on differently because you haven't handled things that was a little bit like the radio that you're handling things via phone and things like this because you're not going to court as part like in the door, obviously what the brief is being filed. We will see what the Fifth Circuit does. I'm optimistic, I suspect, though it probably is a going to the entire Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, en banc, I want to come up with the descendents of these in the states of Artie made this decision, Ohio, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Maryland and Tennessee, Kentucky, Iowa, Oklahoma, Indiana and West Virginia have declared that the the abortion clinics are not essential services. During this time. Louisiana has the governor there is a Democrat right polar life Democrat and so were started to see us across the country know will be a legal issue that continues on that Texas was the chosen Fifth Circuit.

It's where this will have emanate from an initially and we are on it at the ACLJ rewrite the funds a lot of calls coming in one 864 3110 at 2064 312. This is a call I want take from Dr. he admits to this that and we got one of those in from healthcare professionals.

Tim in South Carolina online five saw these reports as well. Tim welcome to Jay Sekulow live your on the air.

A telegraph I protect my gal after reading Company hoping to mount out the help I have. 16 states and the District of Columbia. They're announcing that they're cutting their pay for the employees by 20% and their 401(k)s and all the benefit we as healthcare workers are put our life on the line every day at work and you may want to slap us in the fight bus that we want to put your ear to risk your life but were going to cut your pay makes no sense with this and makes no sense means there is relief for these companies in the package that passed that allows and includes your payroll at the amount human being paid. Now there are a lot of look at me at becoming Tim I'm sympathetic but there are a lot of pressures coming on these healthcare companies in this in this epidemic. Yet their specific relief for the healthcare company as well.

I think that that that there should be backlash and estimate. I don't specifically the company you're mentioning is printed, but these focus under his ER staffing's emergency room staffing and making sure that there are ER doctors, nurses, people available throughout the country to do that and they have cut the other/pay/benefits and and again at a time when these doctors working around the clock, not for economic benefit but but to help people get their being in another going to be face economic hardship that is the last group in America you are facing any kind of extra hardship because what they're dealing ever with everyday and the specific relief in the bill for healthcare company general why this company did this without yet looking at that some companies are not to be thinking about this, but their specific relief. Yeah, absolutely. $350 billion in J the way they're calculating this is there to look at eight weeks of payroll at the current rate, and offer you that amount of forgiveness +25%. So look, I understand that something it expenses are going up during the time it J.

Not only does the bill allow for forgiveness of the loans that are used for payroll. It adds another 25% on top of that, so I will tell you there is some room in here if and if companies reduce pay by more than 25%. The amount that they get in the amount that they are forgiven can be reduced emergency. Some of that play out in the regulations but I think the bottom line is here. The federal government is coming in to allow these companies to keep their payroll at the current level they need to do that and then they need to draw on the assistance to offset those expenses aren't really good to take your calls 164, 31, two, that's 2000 684-3110 let's go to Lois in Oregon online to los welcome to Jay Sekulow live like were considering character as part of that funding help for nonprofit and I called them yesterday and they was saying that churches were not included probably soon be calling nine SBA office.

All you do is go to the website and VA.gov, a gas clear five 501(c)(3)'s and that includes turbines. I was having is that not do are eligible to work just to apply for the loans that you have to is to be for a purpose.

The purpose number one is payroll and that's the number one reason so as to keep your staff payroll mortgage mortgage writ is basic functioning so that you survive through that this process if you do that the loan becomes a grant that you don't have to pay back so I would be calling randomly and VA officials and around the country. This is being done at the federal level and the applications will be done at the federal level, probably online online through SBA.gov. So if your church needs to do that. Check SBA.gov chose those forms are coming limit limitation every gap we were very specific than in working through this legislation will make sure that nonprofits and churches were covered if they need assistance. Yeah, and successful anatomy in the definitions inside the statute do clarify that J we set a couple days ago on this broadcast that we were to be vigilant in making sure that the regulations implemented with the statute had said and I will tell you a very good development on this front Steve Scalise and James Clyburn so leadership on both sides of the House of Representatives have just sent a letter to the Department of treasury also signed by Mike Johnson and Cedric wrist Richmond basically clarifying what you just said Jay reiterating this. The definitions in the statute and reminding the small business administration and the Department of treasury that 501(c)(3)'s, including houses of worship are eligible for this organist down this road. Make sure the regulations reflected on hundred percent and so again I would be calling SBA offices. I would go to the website of the church knew it and and take care, but there will be all online right right back to Fazio 164 3110 liability read the largest was clear for everybody. This is the actual law that was passed during the covered period.

In addition to small business concerns any business concern nonprofit organization veterans organizations or tribal businesses heard described as shall be eligible to receive a covered load of the business concern or nonprofit organization employees not more. That's a small business that more than 500 people a part-time or full-time that nonprofit provision is explicitly then covers churches and other 501(c)(3) religious right organizations. So, again, SBA.gov to apply for those loans and follow the rules. I was a suffice for you to follow the rules very carefully so that that load becomes a grant so that the loan connection turned into something you don't have to pay back or the emailing of payback small amounts. If you follow the rules of the program closely and that she could do that again through SBA.gov. As you said that most of these forms should be live so people can start putting those applications through let's go back back the phones again take over call before the break. Let's see Loretta in Texas online.

What this is that issue right now happening yeah Loretta Wagner Jay Sekulow live hi Loretta, good, great, really, really the point that going on with the Roosevelt yeah I mean the President has said that he is relying on his military leadership within the Navy on how to handle this. This leads a very difficult situation, but these are American sailors and I'm sure that the right steps are to be taken, but this is where you have to really rely on your military personnel.

Military leadership your help public health officials on how to handle this but were all concerned about it and I think what we have to do is rely right now on the leadership within the military to do the right thing.

There's a lot of moving factors are that we don't know, both from a security standpoint in a health security standpoint so let's let the Navy deal with this and in the presence of that's what he's doing 90 fully aware is monitoring the situation closely. I.e. it is.

I think that this again we we are going to go through painful time is the present said where more of these kind of beer to see more these kind reports is watch this morning. The outbreak in Detroit thousand cases jump in one night in a city that a week ago. 15 that had just a handful of cases jump to a thousand in one night so it's it's coming at some point it may not be as extreme as New York but it's it's coming wherever you are, especially here in any kind of dense areas population wise to take your phone calls stay up-to-date number. All these the case like the Fifth Circuit.

The big win for life. There is other states following suit step today with NACLJ that order. Thank you for all of you participate in the March matching challenge.

During this time, which is of uncertainty in our country as we pivoted the ACLJ to cover your concerns and needs. During this over 19 pandemic for 30 years the American Center for Law and Justice has been dedicated to protecting your religious and constitutional freedoms because of you. We've seen great success in the course and Congress concerning the issues that matter most to you and your families ACLJ chief counsel Jay Sekulow are decades long commitment to the Constitution and the rule of law is at the center of everything we do.

The bottom line artwork could not take place without your generous support of uncertainty ACLJ consider making a gift online safe and secure can be put to work immediately, enabling the ACLJ to continue the battle against abortion giant Planned Parenthood to protect Christians facing persecution, much more. Every dollar makes a difference stand with the ACLJ today so online NACLJ is a critical time for our nation and our world with so many challenges facing our country. The work of the American Center for Law and Justice is never been more important during this time of uncertainty. There's no better way to support the ACLJ then through online giving ACLJ chief counsel Jay Sekulow we truly appreciate your financial support without it would be impossible to do our work here and around the globe in the best way to support our work is to make your financial gifts online ACLJ.org online giving simple and secure, and by making an online give your support goes to work immediately, enabling the ACLJ to defend human life to stand up for our good friend Israel worked to uncover the corrupt staying in Washington and so much more. Make a difference today support the work of the acljonline@aclj.org, every dollar makes a difference today online NACLJ Jordan Sankyo wearily right here for those people got a lot of questions you heard from the President. We are about to go through a very difficult time in our country And I think your artistry to see those numbers when you woke up this morning jumps like a thousand new cases in Detroit thousand new cases overnight in one city in America.

That is a new epicenter. These these tough painful two weeks and in some states simulate will be experiencing those piquant cases and I mean just predicting that to step 2200 Americans will die on April 15 is the prediction, let me say something about this because I think is a presence that look were to go through a tough time and this is this different than a sneak attack. It's your new bracing yourself for what you know is coming. And that's what the government's doing, and that's what we are doing and that's what we encourage you to do. For instance, those of you that are watching us on Facebook and watching the sun and listen to us on radio we made the going remote really remote and we've reduced our staff significantly magic.

We may have to go really remote. I mean that's just the nature what this is especially assist comps by want to say something to the families and the cost is a lot ovens and those numbers are big.

Growing up big rates every day. The country is praying for you.

The country is together. This is not political.

I don't want to hear any political rhetoric from anybody about oversight hearings and Marty hearing that differently. We haven't even gotten through this yet. So what I want to encourage people to do is number one state do what the CDC do with the guidelines saying that as we got 30 days of additional social distancing, and that the Surgeon General came out and said it's probably can be longer than that. And folks, I think it probably is. I don't know that by the way on any inside info but I think it's likely to go probably into May and if you look at just if you look at the if you look at the charts. I don't know we have those on our screen we can put them up, but here's the problem. Even when it's the peak and it starts coming down.

There are days and days and days of very high numbers and then you're going to eat you know you look at. You can be going into June, July, and still have been 40 nexus was. I talked to the Wimbledon tennis tournament July canceled so were starting to see events now lick later into the summer Midsummer be canceled at out of concerning the late May you're still talking about a thousand deaths per day.

Yet this of the countries that really faced in any situation optimistically when were not talking about soldiers in war, I got an anti-about World War II's situation were its soldiers on the battlefield, but it's Americans right here at home. Then he gets to what's called the minimus amount is no such thing as a diminished this when somebody's life but it starts really weak. If this works. If we do the socialists think by July it's it's it's as you saw weight way down, but they let me ask you this Congress. How do they operate in a situation like this it when yet incidental stimulus or something else. Well their plan right now days to come back on April 20 both chambers to consider that. But look, I mean this is part of why we raise the idea that when they were here last time they probably should have moved to conduct some type of remote voting. They did not do that. Now I will tell you this, the, the spaced out voting that they did in both chambers when they were here, Jake. It did work pretty well.

They implemented our main stand and they got a fly across the country and then they go into a chamber which is you and I know it's small enticements of this antechamber. It's type and it's just the wrists and you got Senators with that congressman with the disease, with the bars.

I just think this is was was complete negligence. Not having this worked out before, this is this is where we got have contingency planning and technology has to be utilized.

We are in 2020. I think about this. Officials describe the death toll this from the AP that a best case scenario would likely be greater than the more than 53,000 American lives lost during World War I and the models high-end and this is with the mitigation near the realm of possibility that Americans lost to the virus can approach the 291,000 Americans killed on the battlefield during World War II. This is this is in the best case scenario, the 100,000 240,000 now they still want to write an event that their goal is to keep it under that and it's possible at the same time.

When you see one of those big spikes like you to Detroit then do we see that again somewhere else tomorrow you understood you could start see why these numbers right now. It's hard to imagine 2200 people dying from this two weeks from now in a single day. Single leg was in 100 people in a thousand diets know when you start seeing these numbers right and you start see these numbers come together. I let Les listen to Dr. factory to because there talk about how they kind of take this is okay, let's see what what we can do to get under that number by 37 the modeling that Dr. Eric showed predicts that number that you saw.

We don't accept that number that that's with that of the week and it we do everything we can to get it even significantly below that. So you know and I don't want to be a mixed message. This is the thing that we need to anticipate, but that doesn't mean that that's within, except we want to do much, much better than that.

I'm an accident I'm looking and that's the hope in the prayer and that that door and that the right so again they England initially was going to just write it out and then they solid start seeing the modeling of the numbers listed were not doing that, but this is this is hitting like a wave coming I as I said I was mostly arguing couple cases before the Supreme Court of United States at about 10 o'clock in the morning is cooked toast time till about noon and obviously those were canceled the arguments a brief breach of been done know what the court court will they have the argument later will not happen in April and the shirt I can have it looks like it may and probably not June.

So is a July which is usually out by then, but this is a whole new world.

So will say you just don't know me. I think a lot of things it deal because of delays have been put in place will have to be totally reset will be on a new schedule for 2020 and 2021 a to get back on the track both economically education wise will need to be flexible that way and and for businesses. I mean so and and for courts for the for government as well. The same kind of breaks. People are going to be teaching to to work on their small businesses to work it to get back to work to get their kids back in the education track and so I think the people will be willing to not did that.

You know it being at home mom will be kind of a novelty at first and then it's, it quickly becomes something that you see the effects it has some makes it difficult. So, again, 1-800-684-3110 we take one more call before our next break. Let's let's go to Rhonda in Georgia and she questioned my five roundabout adjacent I live on their operating labor bar they won't qualify for plane and and lawyer companies doing that with the should do is try to get that grant, but where you and Georgia at the company in Atlanta. Okay, so again I know that obviously they're trying to figure out what they could do. But if you does impact on employment issue having to make it fit to pursue Sally. I don't know the exact figure again, but it's probably difficult that your meeting and unemployment threshold, you would not pay.

I mean like I can imagine circumstances where it no so it made me question would be, are you better off getting that for the short term and getting back to the other give me any indication on your employment can come back.

Rhonda will find that it is a get or guarantee that you will be reemployed even a client that I think Dennis is part of their chronic and try to control the business mitigation inmate make is best free as possible as well that we may be back particularly phone calls again fairly big thank you to everybody participated in our March matching challenge. Thank you so much for building online ACLJ.or be back answer your questions and with your comments as well on Jay Sekulow life of the American Center for Law and Justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ matching challenge for every dollar you donate will be mass $10 gift becomes $20, $50 gift becomes 100 protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms are most important to you in your beautiful gift today online live from Washington DC Jay Sekulow line phone lines are open for your questions right now: 1-800-684-3110 1-800-684-3110 and now your hose. I really take sponsor that the stimulus legislation. Lot of folks who get a lot of questions about how this impacts them how it impacts their small business, how it impacts their church, how it impacts them individually.

Now, as these systems are going live. I tried to again answer your questions because I think everyone of these questions that we answer probably thousands of people have the same question who are listening to the show and there benefiting from you, who collated with these questions really talk about that today that really let people understand what Congress and the President has done for them to try to provide relief during such an uncertain time. Economically, a lot of things we want to accomplish in and really want to do here and and this is a big part of what were doing is worth putting a lot of time answering questions because legislations can be confusing announcing it's going into effect and people start to see the benefit of it and there may be another one coming. We don't. Another may be a face where you may need to be. So we want to make that as an available resource to our members from around the country that people are: with knees were trying to answer those questions forthright look that we we spent time last week talking about politics of some of this, but today were really focusing on the questions that you have in fact for most of this week we are going to be going right into Good Friday out.

We are to be focusing on questions that you all have asked because I think it's good information to get out to the American people right now and obviously keynote hopefully will be any kind of chinks in the system or clanks and you know there could be, but I do feel like more than I do feel like that the government is really ready deliver on this when I can have like that Obama care meltdown. We had during the rollout of Obama care, that would certainly not be very good and so far, doesn't there be happening now, but again people are just getting VIG people are also going to just still our understanding what they could qualify for an eye, I've see this in the past through these let this legend kind of legislation where a lot of people who were qualified for relief and needed it didn't take it because they didn't know they were qualified or didn't know how it would be available to them.

So we were to try to do through this broadcast is make sure you know what you could be eligible for and remember this is this are your dollars taxpayer dollars that are coming to save your business save your employees save yourself in some cases, make sure you can pay your bills and you are entitled to them as the American if you qualify, so you should do everything possible to check to see if you are that some of the baseline numbers are pretty easy.

We'll talk about that about who's qualified who's not for the stimulus checks.

Those are pretty easy for the house extended unemployment that has assisted deployment out of limits. Very broad doubt and it's so for people who made out of qualified a week and 1/2 ago. You may now find guide now. So where to answer all that after you because we know there's so many questions that are becoming into the broadcast. And I know for every single person who has that question who gets on the air that were answer get for 10,000 or 20,000 more pavements who didn't get on the radio broadcast or who by now know hey that relief could be available to be looked so we want to provide this is a service to you so I know this week numbers of fatalities are going to go up every day and rather than in your getting that from a lot of new sources but I really think what we think we need to do this week is answer your questions that were lawyers, government affairs folks were not medical doctors obviously were praying for better outcomes and in less fatalities and as we did last week with an upright but we really want to spend the week. I wanted to two things this week answers many questions we can answer way to play some of the broadcast that we previously done that answer some of these questions were in a public place of the interview from some of the government leaders to so you can hear from them what they're doing.

So there's some encouragement out here in what is going to be a very difficult difficult week. We encourage as well as always to stay updated with us and ACLJ.or that's ACLJ.or I stay updated with all the cases all the work we've got going on that's ACLJ.or will be right back on Jay Sekulow live is a critical time for our nation and our world with so many challenges facing our country.

Every dollar makes a difference stand with the ACLJ today so online ACLJ secular reprogrammability. Have a great discussion yesterday and excited as you may know him as were the authors American sniper really get into that. He also is a brand-new book of the trigger mechanism which is aimed at a different audience, but I want to talk about that Scott here just a little bit. Scott McEwen I've got kids will a lot of us have kids here and in the world is rapidly changing as a theme but let's start a little bit of background on you and if they don't unfairly know Klingons leaked the story of American sniper. They likely saw the movie, they likely did you read the book but what was your involvement in MMC or one of the authors, but people FCC that kind of is is somewhat of an autobiography and story of a Chris Costa. What was your involvement how that happened. Creation story will mainly because we chose to go with Bradley Cooper*lost Chris in the movie itself had been sold to Warner Bros. Bradley Cooper had signed on as the potential star of the movie, but there been no direction whatsoever arrested new Star Trek movie. We chosen at that stage on that chance. Productions of Warner Bros. and we had not yet chosen by said director then Chris. We lost him and ultimately the movie moved on to a place for Steven Spielberg think the movie could be the director and as Stephen dropping some one month later, and that ultimately I received a phone call from Clint Eastwood and I told him right off the bat that he was our first choice. He was Christianized from day one and probably the reason that we went with Warner Bros. and that and was our to be the to be the producer because that he attends space cowboys with the Clint Eastwood, Clint Eastwood would be the perfect choice for this story. What was it like working with Clint Eastwood on on this production no. It was truly a phenomenal experienced claimant is not only an amazing storyteller is a patriot. He loves this country he loves everything this country is about, and this was truly the best fit for the story of Chris, this story of patriotism. No American sniper itself represents the journey of a single individual by the name Chris Kyle really was the journey of some hundreds of thousands of individuals that have similar experiences in the worst week that we are five now her 20 years against against the terror sources that have tried to country and so it was the perfect fit and you have this new book, and I'm really engaging this idea I was reading up on it will and I were young adult novel.

Readers back in the day together discussed our heart in a weird way because it is something that deftly influences you go back to the books, the kind of change you start think that some of the books that really were aimed at young adults and a new series. I can't valor which is a couple books now new book the trigger mechanism by one such I got young kids there might my oldest son is his 70s and maybe a little bit till he can fully read all of these things himself, but you specimen for an account want to hear from you and tell audience what you decided to get any young adult writing, especially from a more maybe conservative point of view are more patriotic point of you because it not necessarily something being represented in media in general right now in the entire process for the young adult series can't valor really came from the fact that there is nothing in that genre of writing that why a genre if you will for conservative audiences you see books coming out now that generally tear down America generally don't to speak to the values that made this country great country is in and and don't even try to speak to adventure outdoors, you know, things that get things off the Internet is that nature the Candela series was created.

I think one of the more interesting descriptions I've heard from people that look at this series, is that what Kingston is to James Bond valor is to Jason for and really is that prediction you will of the patriot of kids enjoying the outdoors uppercase living this country and all the things I doing reading the Nancy Drew Hardy boys Johnny Quest all those type of books that we have and we were kids yet, they really pointed out those great values.

The message I request such as tugs by hatching on the Johnny Quest collector personally and my wife's chagrin so I can I'm excited about this for Mike. It's good you think that something that's missing. Even in media, like you said you Johnny Quest.

I would provide watch TV show cartoon but it was a sense of adventure their innocence of life, when your kids are so digitally centered. Even now I mean you have my kids essentially are going to school now because of all of that, they shut out everything they're going to school via their iPads or via computers and some of the schools at school I go to my kids go to the exit have said okay this is your outdoor time is eight they know and they're well aware of it, but it's very easy to follow into that trap is apparent even to just say okay when my kids are in the digital age and the tech agent will and I are are sort of in the last generation that remembers before the Internet and then members getting the Internet in our house and we were really computer started happening at home like that were all starting to connectedness. Great posits that, but we also see a generation of that becoming a concern to be buying really limit your screen time and it's difficult right now and I think something like this actual book is important while so as well and I Candela series not only give the message of patriotism. It also gives a message of self-reliance and getting out there and and and and learning the skill set in the outdoors, of how to survive, get out there ride motorcycles shoot guns. You know, shoot bows and arrows swim and do the things that really built this country in an entity in the nation is in my opinion was in the indoors that it was the outdoors is that self-reliance and I think kids need to get back to that particular now we have a situation we do while his social distancing is important and I totally supported. I also support the fact that people need to get outside and get out there in the outdoors one. One thing that this kind of brought up was how much influence in in youth media these days and you think of things like common core and the standards that were seeing in the school system that maybe don't reflect the values of that. I would say the majority of the country, but I have imposed upon us. How important is it to you that really for you to have some entertainment something to enjoy way to get fulfillment out of but also is reflective of the conservative values that we all hold so dear Crystal, I really do you look at the at theit's all based on this liberal you will acceptance of all of these values that our kids are being taught now, many which I totally disagree with Ryan totally disagree with. Things are coming out of our schools and I totally disagree with this attitude. You have to follow big brother, and that your life comes from the Internet in your life comes from these devices that are putting from me when I think as we see situations now are people get into a quote panic mode or whatever else this this you know we were seeing in our society thinks because people haven't become self-reliant. I'm all about being prepared. I'm all about being ready for the next disaster not this one. The next when the hurricane that are clear here in California. Whatever she should do and that we should teach our kids but we should also teach them the ability you have to go outside and you happen Out for a few weeks.

Whatever that thing to have that skill set and be prepared for whatever comes your way we need to teach our children Mike and Gossett and and I think that this is important as our kids are exposed to the Internet and social media into various forms of the YouTube celebrities which are is a huge deal a minute miles ultimately out of Mike my kids they don't see a difference between what they see on major television networks and what they see on YouTube.

They treat their equaled at this point when it comes to the way media is perceived by kid.

This is also probably a little bit weaker, not only the parent to progeny reading these books to but also to the kids it of some of the dangers we will be seen now that was doing zoomed out for the classes I and other people in hacking into zoom and playing really inappropriate content for children, just as they figured out and I do it. There are bad people out there on the Internet and this is a good this this book, though it's adventure it spotted patriotic.

It's also get your villains are steeped in a little bit of reality will exactly the dark characters in both of these books can valor and trigger mechanism. Our dark underworld.net portions of the world that we have meant to be real there meant to be obviously super real in and out and how generally are but they're also meant to give a lesson not only to kids but the parents that people don't even have any idea what the kids are looking at on the right now, but there are also other things and other messages out there that are really dangerous and I think the parents mother things is book series is our evil characters are all based on Internet experiences you know anyone in the trigger mechanism that actually start taking over, you know, artificial intelligence, driverless vehicles, driverless trucks things this answer in order to do havoc on our society kind of follow up on that is that you know will lose referencing YouTube and you watch one video and go to the next and go to the next. What I like about the book is that a kid can read it and then if they have questions or they want something else related what they've read, they can go to their parents and can create conversation and dialogue and I think that's something we were missing a lot of parents to read this book and gimmicks that. I'm a big believer is there's no educators there's only bad parents and you know I believe that what we do is we train, we train our children to do the same things that be know that that we show that this is an interactive experience that I hope this series is I would love to see parents read it and say what was he talking about there when he talked about the fact that if people try and contact you on the net.

You have to be very concerned about that evil people what what you mean by that.

I think parents know can can get into that world with their kids. Absolutely. I couldn't agree more.

I will make sure we get all the links that are in excess. Check out the best place to purchase. This is the trigger mechanism. It's the second book and can valor series is that most of you probably heard or read or seen American sniper so Scott, we appreciate not only contribution to our kids to society in general.

WE ACTUALLY BELIEVE THAT WE COULD TAKE A HOTEL AT 250 BED HOTEL AND TURN THAT INTO 250 HOSPITAL ROOMS IN LESS THAN THREE WEEKS. WE ALSO POTENTIALLY DO IT, TURN HUNDRED 50 BED TO ICU ROOM SO THE CORPS HAS DESIGNED A MODEL IS A COOKIE-CUTTER MODEL REALLY THAT YOU CAN TAKE IT YOU CAN PLUG AND PLAY IN DIFFERENT AREAS AND SO WE LOOK AT THIS IS THAT THREE-PHASE APPROACH, WE STRATEGICALLY PLACED FIELD HOSPITALS ALL OVER THE STATE THREE WEEKS AGO. THOSE ARE NOW BEING POPPED UP THAT WILL HELP FILL THE GAP. IN SUMMARY, HOSPITALS, WE OWN AND 3000 BEDS, 2000 VENTILATORS HHS MEDICAL STATION WHICH WERE WORKING TO PUT INTO THE 90 BEACH CONVENTION CENTER AND THEN WE HAVE TWO HOSPITALS THAT WERE RECENTLY CLOSED.
