Jay Sekulow five intelligence investigating virus outbreak originated on lab as part of China's efforts to actually compete with the US will break this down for you today and more on Jay Sekulow about the World Health Organization they had access. The Chinese government but he didn't give Americans access when we needed them the most timely point at the very beginning of resident talk about that today know that the virus itself did originate in Wuhan so all those things come together other still a lot we don't know this. What the President was talking about. We know answers to these think we still have this virus now Jay Sekulow live. We are to your phone calls 100-2000, 1103 wanted to get to today is this breaking news from the intelligence community, specifically about the virus that the coronavirus and its origins that we know what it was created in a Wuhan lab, but now there is a line of intelligence thinking and the theory that is coming together very rapidly within the US intelligence community that this virus was actually created just for China to be able to show the US that they could create a virus, release it into the public and then they would have superior medical capability to actually handle the outbreak of the virus in their own country that what would that be. That would make their saying it wasn't a biological weapon, but to me it sounds a lot like biological terrorism. If this is true because the way that that they explain this Fox News and Brett bear reported on it was the one of the individuals who worked in the lab was directly infected with the virus and then went right to that wet market and the virus started spreading throughout China so that it was their intent there to actually spread it amongst the Chinese people so that they could show see how much better we are at handling something like this.

Then the United States and that's why we haven't gotten clear information out of China about real poles it's taken about the amount of people that have actually died from it about a people actually contracted. Whether or not it's really under control another 31,000 people so far as were live on the air that have contracted died from the fatalities.

If China did what is now being alluded to. This will be as many sources are saying the costliest governmental cover-up of all time. Now China's are you trading partner with the United States so there's a tremendous amount of geopolitical geo-economic situations here. We have to be cognizant of that as we go through this, but if in fact this was the cover-up that it appears to be. I think the concern for all of us for the entire country. But frankly from the world is that China unleashed this covered it up early reporting total fatalities of 3000 people, which can't possibly be correct and then the question of course is as I said is China is a you trading partner with the United States so we gotta handle this thing in a certain way, but I think look. We want to get to the bottom of this. I want to go to fan really quickly here fan. What is your sense with Congress out, but there's Artie been talk about this on how to approach China and this what is the congressional reaction. So part of this breaking news while I look back weeks ago J to those senators use actually sit on the Intel committee and the armed services committee, namely Sen. Cotten from the very beginning was raising the alarm on this and I couple that J with some of the sound from Sec. Pompeo that you said that all signs really are pointing to this virus coming out of the lab I congressionally J here's what I think needs to happen.

They need to stand behind a strong federal response from the commander-in-chief China because of this story is correct day.

Once we get on the other side of this virus responding to China to become priority number one rifles we come back will take your phone calls, 1-800-684-3110 at 2000 684-3110 is always false on ACLJ.org all the cases we are that are ongoing right now and we encourage you during this matching challenge both double the impact your donation make that donation online@aclj.org is the best way to donate ACLJ.or keeps this broadcast on the air will be right back is a critical time for our nation and our world with so many challenges facing our country.

They met in Washington DC during secular joining the Nutley today as well as Jay Sekulow Jordan is weak. Went to a break.

We were talking about this new report that is emanating from Fox News, US intelligence investigators are increasingly confident that the coronavirus did indeed originate inside that that laboratory in the Wuhan region some speculation on what the motive was maybe the motive was that the Chinese were you interested in demonstrating that they could control a virus better than United States others are suggesting may be another motive but Jordan, I think all signed me think about Sen. Cotten's comments early on and then you fast-forward to both comments from Pres. Trop and Sec. prepaid Pompeo. It sure looks like to me this is the most likely source of this virus and now it's starting to come out, have a take Our Secretary of State, Sec. Pompeo stand just mention talking about this whoop the Wuhan theory that this is created in a lab.

It was created. It is an effort for China to somehow try to one up the US and whether not they expose their population intentionally which that exposed the world to the virus intentionally is a big question that has to be answered but but also if if they were trying to show the US how great they were. Let me tell you right away if they did not intentionally release virus to that that the general public in China and into the world. They were not very good at creating virus in the lab. They were not good at handling inside the lab and we are still very much superior. I believe I to try to take a listen to Secretary of State Pompeo that this virus originated in Wuhan, China. We know that there is the one instituted by all the virology just a handful of miles away from where the wet market was still lots to learn. You should know that United States government is working diligently to figure this out but what we really clearly need that Chinese government to open up. They say they want to cooperate. One of the best ways they could find to cooperate with the collective world into Latin as the world scientist know exactly how this came to be exactly how this virus began to spread.

This is an interesting this is an interesting part of this we are debating in the United States right now. Culpability of our largest trading partner in a government that owns a significant portion of American debt. I want that the thinking from where debating publicly whether the Chinese either intentionally or through the costliest government shutdown cover-up in US history and world history did this on purpose or negligent as Jordan just said, yet they also control and own a large portion of our debt.

At the same time they are large trading partner with the United States so you got understand the complexities of the geopolitical situation got a call coming in a Line 6 door.

Let's wait and take this call because I think a very relevant to what were talking about. Hey, Carl, Carl Scully from Arizona on Line 6 Carl, welcome to Jay Sekulow live your on the air by Dan Darden a good day here in Arizona we prove it that the Chinese government are used: 19. Now they buy a weapon you think it would be prudent to cut ties with China since the attack against the last down, realizing also that in 1996, the Prime Minister of disaster for China made statements of practice bio weapon strikes against United States in the last I cannot discuss ways is its okay to limit limit jump in here first cutting all ties with China.

Not a smart move that person when not the world economic impact that would be so significant that it would be impossible even measure that when you talk about sanctions. I think look as this information comes out in my view sanctions would be appropriate now. I think that that's actually right think that if China was proven to one to be messing around with a very dangerous new strain of virus intentionally creating this was not what it was accidentally created in you know a chicken coop that spread. It was not like that kind of a virus got out of control, but something that they intentionally created in a lab editing got out of the lab and one I think it's worthy of sanctions that they did inform the world. The moment they knew that it got at the lab that's worthy of sanctions, but there were it's worthy of serious sanctions because it's almost like it if they don't want to call it bio weapon attack.

It certainly kind of like bioterrorism and if they intentionally went into their own public to the have their own public infected so they could show the world how quickly they could deal with the infection without thinking about the fact that they would be spreading it around the world to be that calls for serious action both retaliatory it economically against China but also to be that this brings it back home and everything was to address it to the World Health Organization sitting on their hands throughout this entire process which I legally say this I want to go to them on this because Tom, the center has been very out front on this as he made any as he said anything since this news broke. He has he has indicated that he has been his belief from the beginning. J that this virus originated at a lab in and quite honestly I think it's very important to tie is a couple of those conversation lines the Jordan brought up together and this is also one of the reasons the President Trump is taking a tougher and tougher economic line on China from the beginning because they haven't been transparent in a number of ways.

Those two issues tie together their transparency and then the fact that there are leading economic trading partner, NJ.

The other thing is Sec. Pompeo drew a very important distinction in this Fox news article when he said that look. Other countries have programs like these, but the way that we know that there secure in the way that we know that they are capable of keeping the viruses from getting out as they let outsiders including the United States into those facilities to make sure that the safeguards are proceed are are followed. That did not happen in this case OJ when you talk about sanctions for not dating allow outside inspectors in to make sure that the viruses were being handled properly. I would think sanctions would be a starting point, but the second piece of that is something the President.

Trump is Artie starting you want to talk about the trade deal with China. I think the economic force and leverage of the United States is going to have to be leveraged on top of sanctions and if they want to keep trading with United States. They cannot continue to operate in this way I was going to make another phone call.

Jordan yeah got close to about the stimulus. Remember what this is another big developing story that the funds the initial funds for the payment protection plan for the important employee payment protection plan for those businesses that wanted to keep their employees paid while they were having to either work from home or facing or not the ability to not able to work at those loans could turn into grants that first set of $350 billion has Artie been allocated. There's no more money left in it so there's now a a debate in the Senate about putting more money they're supposed to do it last week. That didn't happen in a state Artie mentioned will see what happens this week in Washington. It's already Thursday and we have not seen that action yet. Let's go to Vanessa in Pennsylvania on like to Vanessa. Welcome to Jay Sekulow live great. Thank you for taking my call make money and payroll protection benefit model business owner who will build beginning new friend coming out to rely on subcontractors only, so it's a little bit tougher there.

The subcontractors may not lose the final conclusion fan on the subcontract you have independent contractors that was not part of the stimulus that you could calculate or did they decide they would include well not directly J because the calculation is based on payroll, but that the subcontractors themselves. J can apply on their own so you know you don't want to double dip because you want the money to spread as far as it possibly cancel the subcontractors can have to plan their own and in the small business apply on their own, but J. Look, I think we need to say very clearly right at the outset of this conversation that that the money for this font need this program might be exhausted at this point as the Treasury Department announced this morning that there is an opportunity at 3 PM this afternoon for Democrats in Washington DC to decide that they don't want that money to be out Sec. Minasian leader McConnell leader McCarthy are all willing to support a unanimous consent to put another $250 billion into that program to continue its viability. J.

At this point, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi are standing in the way and why are they standing on the way. It's because they have another wish list of things that they want to put into that funding bill. II can't say any clear those two in the Democrat party in Washington DC Jake. They are the reason that today that additional $250 billion won't be inserted. They were also the reason it was blocked last week just said by the way, that if in fact who had signed a negligence or did this on purpose that the death of every single person that is been subjected to the fatality from this disease virus is on the hands of China folks we come back will continue take your phone calls 164 30 what to think about that statement. Also think about the statement. It is supposed to celebrate Democrats shot down an extra $250 billion for that employee payment protection plan last week. Will they get to it this week. River matching challenge, but ACLJ.org donate online.

This is a great time to support the work of the ACLJ word matching challenge, but he double the impact your donation and we know it again.

This is for those you are financially stable position right now you make a donation but you $20 and a matching challenge, but you $20 donation ACLJ.org becomes $40 or $50 donation that becomes $100 per yearly charge 20 or $50 and you can make it online. ACLJ.org that helps us right away it goes to all of the legal work were doing, which the courts are open as my dad talked about the first day of Supreme Court oral arguments by phone were filing in cases assisting churches out gets whatever just a moment that is pretty. I think impressive. Just the amount of churches we've assisted it is with this all the coving 19 restrictions in those who are doing the drive-ins and drive-up services and things like that that that and we explained as well to churches the that they are eligible.

Once there more funds in this program for that employee protection payment plan so that we have actually had in contact with the been assisting our attorneys hundred and 17 different churches in just the last about 10 days hundred and 17 churches. The ACLJ has assisted directly on either how they can handle the new restrictions in their state and community with coving 19 and can they have those gatherings like they do the driving services and we've assisted their we've also been assisting part at 117 assist is assisting those churches with the PPE PPP that the protection plan the payment protection plan for their employees and the loads and that they can while you're walking them through that now they had.

We know that more money needs to get into that brought into that system, but I just want to encourage people working really hard at the ACLJ right now on the issues that are most important to the American people like that but the coving 19 issues like the stimulus issues.

It looks like a little be looking at tip. Hopefully another stimulus for at least this employee a protection plan so that that would be available to churches to so you get more calls about that but also the restrictions that are staying in place will others be starting to be lifted and made how will that work. We are assisting a lot of people around the country. Religious organizations, churches, and so far the count is 117 that's growing every single day since support our work@aclj.org and double the impact your donation fan are we going to get more money into that plan so that more churches out there organizations and companies that needed to keep their employees paid while they are at the stay out while the stay-at-home policies are being extended at least through the end of April for both states headed for other states, even into mid-May. So far no limits. A couple of things on that Jordan.

First of all I would really encourage churches out there, whether they have already access this program were considering accessing it. Once the funds are replenished. I would really encourage them to good ACLJ.org in and look at the resources that we've compiled for those hundred 17 churches that you mention J because our dirt because this can be very important. Once the opportunity reopens for a church to know how they want to proceed.

Know what is to be required of them and then have the existing relationship with a financial institution to proceed to your question Jordan about whether or not the additional $250 billion is to be added to this program.

I do think it's going to happen, Jordan, but there is now a delay any treasury announced this morning that the funds have expired and again remember leader McConnell tried to pass by unanimous consent.

Last week, a measure that would just automatically plus up that account to the tune of $250 billion and Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi stood in the way so we are in a situation at this very moment as we speak that that fund that that program is out of funds cannot take additional applications or bring new lenders on board Jordan, that remedy could come as soon as 3 o'clock this afternoon. At least the start of the process when the Senate comes into session they will again ask for unanimous consent, but in less Senate Democrats start to back down. They will again block that so I would but I would put it to you this way funds are going to come into this program. At some point I really do believe, but I cannot tell you exactly when, because at this moment in Washington DC Democrats are blocking that program from being flossed up and they're doing it because they want hundreds of millions of dollars in other accounts that Jordan get this those accounts are not out of money right now, but the small business one and the one that is servicing churches that account is out of money. That's the one they're blocking] take your phone calls, 1-800-684-3110 we got more coming into about this question about China in this breaking news really in the last 24 hours about China's role in intentionally releasing this virus to try and prove to the world that they were just as good or better at handling and a virus like this without thinking or I guess with thinking that hate even if they can handle it which I don't believe any of their numbers whatsoever they they have no care for human life. They don't they don't they still see it's a cultural difference. If you put it that the degree of heat of the way of human life. We think about going into the lab and they actually get one of those. Let the people at the lab make them infected with this and then send them out to a market in the city intentionally and that is what the intelligence US intelligence is looking at right now they're saying that's not the creation of a bio weapon. To me it's at least bioterrorism and it it it it. If this is proven to be true, and with the fact to me that before go to the caller at the fact that China is not giving any real information to the US and that the World Health Organization seems like they are dead which I had to be seems it's more and more likely that this is devious action by China will look at me here if there's the fact.

The fact is we all know where this is going to go. I mean, we eat everybody kind dancing around. But where this is going to go is either China did it intentionally, or with gross negligence. In either case at as created in the United States almost over 31,000 fatalities in the United States alone and growing in the rest of the world. More than that and what you have is China's culpability the questions going to be how do we respond to it as a country, so the presence being very deliberate with what he saying you're seeing that you're hearing that they are our largest trading partner.

So we gotta be very concerned about that, but at the same time I want to be clear on this with the Chinese none have done here government toward the government cover up whatever might be is inexcusable. It is a violation of international law is a violation of basic human rights and human dignity and I'd like to know where the United Nations is on this. I'd like to know where the World Health Organization actually is on this since they cover for China now we can get involved in that the ACLJ and we will will find out what the UN can do about this, but the World Health Organization knew about this and the present was very wise and in cutting up those funds with folks that's exactly why supporting the ACLJ is so important what Jordan explained to you about our matching challenge, but it's a really important time to stand if you're able to stand with the ACLJ River second half-hour coming up will take your phone calls. What hundred 684-3110. This is a critical time. The ACLJ as it is for a lot of organizations but we are working so hard. Not only do we bring you this broadcast every day.

Matching challenge month of April and you double the impact of the nation ACLJ.really encouraging online donations this month ACLJ.org will be right back.

Give a gift today online LJ live from Washington DC Jay Sekulow and secular Qubec Jay Sekulow live in our second half-hour. We appreciate you joining us what 62. That's what hundred 684-3110 so we have focusing on this really breaking news that it's being discussed so openly that in that is that China's role not only in that the lab was working on a virus and creating a new virus but it potentially which on its face again raise a lot of concerns because China doesn't allow the same kind of review like Dan was talking about that other countries do with their doing this kind of very dangerous research which what the world views that we can create vaccines for potential new viruses that they could come like another was one Israel be worked out something similar that was in chickens but not humans, but they and they were tried and they are still trying to rapidly take that vaccine for that ended to return to what they could be used on humans and are still working on that first but that's the way you do it in the Safeway China does things dangerously recklessly and maybe here intentionally released a virus on their own people, which is bad enough virus that they'd spread around the world causing a pandemic while they were reckless. They were wanton, they were negligent at best devious. At worse, intentionally worse. Hopefully that's not the case but the fact that they were this negligent points to the fact and points of the problem but as I said, here's the balance we have a situation now would China. They are largest trading partner and they control a lot of US debt they own a lot of US debt sanctions would be appropriate, but when people say, can we just cut them off. Can we just tell the Chinese government weak or not going to deal with you anymore. As if you don't exist. That's not reality.

But what is also not reality is 31,002 deaths in the United States. I say it's not reality, but as of because by the time the broadcast is done, it can be more than that, so that 31,000 going to change the time you're hearing this later in the day or tomorrow morning.

Tonight it's been a change so there hundred and 39,000 deaths worldwide.

So far because of this covert, 19, it appears the Chinese are completely culpable and responsible bill question is legally Pollitt canonically. What can we do and also what is the temperature of the of the Senate and House on something like this than when time comes by center cons been very outspoken, but what about others you plenty of others are lagging behind J they need to catch up with where Sen. cotton is and I would just say very clearly to the rest of the world. The rest of the world needs to partner with the United States in a seminar I read this earlier, but I think it's so important J of these remarks from Sec. Pompeo were not accidental. He said many programs that many countries have programs like this in countries that are open and transparent. They had the ability to control them and keep them safe and they allow outside observers in to make sure all processes and procedures are right. I only wish that had happened in this place. With that in being the context J and Jordan where in the world is the World Health Organization to me that is the context that made it most appropriate for Pres. Trump to say we're suspending that $550 million that your sent. We are sending to, because if you can't speak forcefully in a situation like this where a major country were not talking about a small country where major country of the world behave this irresponsibly within we are knocking to send you $550 million take your right beat the the at the temperature in the house and Senate needs increase on this, but I would tell you the temperature all around the world needs to increase on this in China needs to answer those questions right folks as we go into this next break we encourage you keep calling 1-800-684-3110 at 2000 684-3110. There's so much going on the ACLJ Natalie is my dad participating in one of those phone oral arguments and his role as a counsel to the President but we also involved in the cases like Little sisters of the poor, which was also one of the cases chosen to be done by phone to verify the oral argument.

Every dollar makes a difference stand with the ACLJ today support our work online ACLJ back to Jay Sekulow life. They invented in Washington DC were talking about this breaking news reported by FOXNews.com that the US intelligence investigators are increasingly of the belief and I think the evidence is quite frankly been pointing to this for a long time that the coronavirus did indeed originate inside that Wuhan lab.

Some of the question now is whether or not it was deliberately released as Jordan has discussed or maybe there was gross negligence and escape from the lab. I think that's really the crux of the debate right now. I can't help but thinking back to a couple of months ago. Even when Sen. cotton, who was privy to these intelligence briefings started to tell us that this was indeed get to be the case but in the end, and now indeed that is a coming out.

We want to go right to the phones in this segment of the broadcast get you into the conversation.

I think some of you been feeling this way for a long time as well, and I'm guessing that maybe Pat from Florida online to is one of them out Pat welcome to Jay Sekulow live your on the air like a dog like you do that, I get the question, are we all being a little nave to assume that this is anything but a bio weapon. It was created in a lab by a man in that it was released with an intent to cause a problem which therefore my mind makes a bio Jordan had an interesting analysis on this and I think it's it's correct here. It was either either is a bio weapon or it was bioterrorism because of the neck of their own negligence. Now it would be gross negligence, to say the least, but we don't have all the facts yet indications and this was the indications right now are that in fact the Chinese government for the creators of this with China, the government involved in everything, so it's not like there's one part amount. Another unfortunately for the world their negligence if that's what it is, or gross negligence or their intentional actions have unleashed 138,000 deaths across the United States to work across the world, yet absolutely average so I added minimum at a minimum, what they've done is grossly negligent under law.

That's criminal that is is a criminal action, and so under international law would be a crime committed against one there their own people because of the fact that they allow this to recklessly if we want to give them the benefit of the doubt. There on one side of this coin. One option recklessly enter public, thus infecting the public with this virus when there was not a vaccine leading to people dying in the numbers that no one believes coming at the China because no one ever believes in the numbers coming out of China. But then, second, and I think what's important is it that's that's like a best case scenario right now. Worst-case scenario is that they intentionally sent one of those lab technicians who was infected down into a busy market in Wuhan and started to spread the virus, knowing that that virus had the potential to spread around the world that the Chinese ultimately could not contain it in shot inside China that's impossible in the global world that we live did or I actually lived in because now we don't make that travel because of the a lot of this. You could blame on the Chinese and the Chinese lab. The reason why you're at home right now and not at work. The reason why you may have lost your job is is to be blamed on what China has done either way. In either scenario, whether it was intentional or grossly negligent, which is also criminal. Both should require agent or direct US response.

I think right now America and our government is focused on helping our people eating the vaccine long-term organ have to deal with China on this. I would actually take up a step further and say this and require a global response, and that is this is been the least on the entire world and fan you are our ACLJ really easy Alger European Center for Law and Justice a designate T to the United Nations. They have been known why I mean they have said nothing.

The World Health Organization is finding themselves in the middle of a controversy the controversy it was there in fact cover. So what you think happens at the UN. What can we do at the UN to get them engaged in this. This is a global response has that happened here to China that's it's gotta be global and your JI think it's gotta start with a global recognition. The weather was an intentional release or an accidental one. Really, the responses the same enemy.

In some ways. While Jordan is correct that it would be worse if it was intentional. It's almost a distinction without a meaningful difference because the question needs to be what needs to be done now and really not just the United States levying sanctions the world needs to come together as one and respond aggressively to China because if they don't, J.

This will repeat. I mean that the hubris of the Chinese government and the Chinese regime I has been well documented and if they do not pay a price they will not change their actions.

There's gotta be more transparency inside of these labs but mainly there has to be an economic response because like Jordan mentioned earlier, that is what the Chinese understand and Jordan RJ.

You ask about the United Nations, I have not heard a single positive forward-looking movement of inertia out of them. I think the United States and specifically Pres. Trump is right to press start pushing that envelope by defining the world worth or a health organization. I think it was the right first move. JI think there's a lot more than needs to come out hundred percent and in this, the UN silence is deafening. The World Health Organization Aquino basically been invented for CNN called a pandemic in the White House called a pandemic before the World Health Organization did which tells you about the luck I'd taken of the cauldron. Yeah Robert Collier from Texas on line 5 Robert welcome to Jay Sekulow live your on the air yet. Thank you for taking my call this morning to talk about what I think about the paycheck protection plan for self-employed like myself. I do not have W-2s. I do not have employees in order to qualify, they have to go up on my schedule C they go off of line 31 which is your net income but that after expected and deductions which does not accurately reflect what might your paycheck is to myself. So basically, the way they got it set up. I only get about 1/3 eligibility for paycheck protection, but it doesn't really protect my pay did you get Robert in view of you apply for. Yes okay been approved for that amount already know, provide not a ticket.

Yeah that's it seems to be an ongoing issue right now so hopefully with the additional revenue.

So, look at me to remember the idea of the PPP was to protect payroll to protect personnel. II keep saying that your situation will be different as you primarily deal with independent contractors, they will qualify for unemployment insurance that they can qualify for various government benefits here in the situation, but the this is not a we want to keep. If this not a general funding of all operations. This is really targeted to maintaining payroll and I say that as a CEO because that's what were having to deal with right now you work really hard to leave you a huge meeting yesterday here at the ACLJ to do the right things to keep your people employed.

That is what the PPP was designed to do fan investment obviously some fund issues because it's out of money, so we gotta get that the Senate back in their because Robert's calling for the third, that he would qualify for mean I know so far, very few people that I know are actually getting the funds in time because of that was so much request put in that this move very quickly really quick and I think Robert Robert's point is well made. J because I mean, like you said this was never intended to cover every complication that a small business would have. It was made.

It mainly intended to target your target keeping payroll online in the calculation that Robert's talking about basically you have to calculate your monthly payroll and then you're eligible for up to 2 1/2 times that amount in the intention J is that that would cover eight weeks of payroll and then some overhead. Maybe not all overhead is also a $10 million maximum. But look, here's the bottom line. Small businesses have tapped into it. To the extent that that $250 billion is now exhausted and there are no more applications are being taken on site 350 billion. The additional request is for 250 billion, and it should have been done last week. It could have been done last week. If it weren't for Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi blocking it. I hope that they've had a change of mind income 3 o'clock the Senate will pass it by unanimous consent. J if I were forecasting.

I think there dug in on this. I think there could continue to delay and try to get more special funding for pet projects out of this individual work had to be very vigilant on this because you know what's coming with the house Democrats on this all absolutely. This is when our our legislative team working with attorneys Eric Capitol Hill team led by fan and really are attorneys weighing it across the country, looking on specific issues I that's when we have to go through line by line because it's one thing what the Senate is able to agree on its and still you need to look through that but and that the Republican led Senate, but the house, especially what they may try to add on it and get back to the Senate and try to sneak in under various forms of language's organ again. There will be compromise, but this should not be compromise on but of funding to Planned Parenthood do not should not be compromised. Really, everything in this should be about coving 19 and economic relief related to coving 19 and the coronavirus in the stay-at-home orders to close businesses in the employee payment protection programs and things like that.

That's what it should be related to anything else should be cut out anything else should be cut out will continue take your phone calls, one 800 684 31 two that's 1-800-684-3110.

My question is Social Security recipients who but don't pay any additional taxes that can you confirm that if you get a direct deposit.

Normally that pay 12,000 $1200 payment goes directly and here it Social Security payment would know if you're doing direct deposit and you have filed a tax return our people already getting an I've been notified by a bunch of folks that say they are starting to receive it. This week they been missing you this week, so it should go directly and into your direct deposit as your Social Security check decision be any problem. I hope that answers your question. And that's good to point out forever for everybody that if you're on Social Security you've Artie got it set up as direct deposit that that's how it will be deposited that that stimulus off for you personally and start checking your account said this week because that dad the federal government announced that those checks would be direct deposit checks would be going this week and the checks will be mailed starting to be mailed out this week, which means if your check was mailed out probably next week, but keep an eye evidencing the local news reporting.

Keep an eye on your mailbox.

Make sure you know in the because I get the everybody else's heard this news to you, including those with bad intentions of your getting it by met by actual snail mail by the post office. Make sure to check your mail every day. You probably know around what time becomes because there are those who are out there who know these checks are going out as well. Let me add something here unrelated to that topic going back to the situation which I and I just got an email from a very good friend of ours. A very good lawyer in Washington DC someone we've worked with who to point out to me that in on January 15 and the trade deal with China okay Sewickley actually signed the deal is with in January 15 that there was an article, article 7.6 of that agreement under miscellaneous says two things. One, the parties affirm their existing rights and obligations with respect to each under under the WTO agreement and other agreements to which the parties are a party that's normal.

But this was also inserted, which he said is unusual. This number two in the event that a natural disaster or other bull event outside the control of the parties delays a party from timely comply with its obligations under great disagreement, the parties shall consult with each other.

Remember the rich must be a $250 billion purchase by the Chinese government of American products. Will they now use article 7 section 2 to void that out with the present was concerned about a alluded to concerns that he had, but this is.

This was negotiated in the agreement and the agreement is dated January 15 of this year. Coincidence, maybe except I don't believe in coincidences, active funds was going to let her in Washington state online one littered thanks for joining us here on the air. Alcohol question regarding the one question I did try not really covered both up. They really make blackberry disappear but they wouldn't ask questions about what's going on because apparently it could be found out that Dan basically this was a clear cover-up somewhere and if that's the case may also be prosecuted for genocide. Genocide is aggressive genocide that is a high standard under international obligations to breach a genocide level would be high, but we don't have any that that we live enough evidence for that. Yesterday but but there I do think that these are the kind of issues people can be asking Jordan go ahead yes exactly as this develops, as this is right now. The theory is this.

This is what we know. We pull our intelligence community knows that this would be developing a Wuhan lab. The question is was extreme recklessness or was it being a develop it away or was it being developed so that China could put on some world display that they could create a virus. Let it out into China and in control. It in a way that the US would not be able to with a similar situation so was their intent to actually have the spread in China and was there. Then the second question because any scientist would understand. Dealing with this kind of virus that that would spread around the world. So did you do that with the intent to spread it around the world as well, so was extreme recklessness. Which is it still get a criminal act under international law or any faith if it goes that next level. Dad where was intentionally done. It's almost like an act of war. That's when you get to genocide when it's things like that so we don't mention silently idle to go there but all of this has to be looked at and I will tell you this, our international law department.

The ACLJ is looking at every angle on this. Every angle right. Let's go back to phones 1-800-684-3110 final call of the day, one 864 3110 James called it Virginia online to James welcome the Jay Sekulow logger on the air like a girl you do? The economic effects and holding China responsible now we have 20 couple trillion dollar debt. A lot of it's the China goodly default on part of that and and as compensation if they are not willing to own up to it as a as a actually you know I'm actually James, I've actually thought about that. If we get the evidence mounts as to what happened here and they'll look this $22 trillion with the debt. I think that's a figure man on resentful but it's close to that we say is the United States you have forfeited that we consider that liquidated damages for the havoc you've caused on the world and especially the United States. Now I never looked at the legal issues on that but I thought about that they control through but they if they've unleashed this and neither did it intentionally or through negligence. We use this to reduce the indebtedness to China. I have not talked to anybody about that. I have thought about it though and I think it's worthy of pursuing you know folks at what what is important to know hereto as well and only to the fan on the stand right now where the American people are still focused and I know a lot of our listeners around the country around the world. However, their listing or watching this broadcast right now. You still want to know just the final had an update. Is there going to be movement in Congress today and over in even tomorrow over the weekend to get more funds into the stimulus program the opportunity will be at 3 o'clock this afternoon in the United States Senate will where all indications are the leader.

McConnell will again asked for unanimous consent to add that $250 billion to the small business lending program. Jordan at this point there is an expectation that Democrats would object if they were able to pass it by unanimous consent. The opportunity in the House of Representatives would be tomorrow when they are planning to be in session would have an opportunity to pass it for Jordan. As of this moment as I speak to you. There is no deal, and it's because Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi are blocking. Think about that folks. Democrats big government, big spending Democrats are the ones blocking money from hard-working Americans so they can stay on the payrolls of the companies they work for their celebrating victories like that SOC was celebrating victory think that that's how out of touch they are tomorrow.

The broadcast we did get to today 13 revelations because of newly declassified evidence that show the FBI never had a rush.
