Questions today from Washington DC. Phone lines are open for your questions right now called 1-800-684-3110 1-800-684-3110 and now your holes secular old Jay Sekulow library retake overnight T the response of that stimulus legislation lot of folks got 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 the 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 in 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 to affect 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 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're going to be focusing on questions that you all have asked because I think it's good information to get out from the American people right now and obviously you know hopefully will be any kind of clanks and you know there could be, but I do feel like I do feel like that the government is really ready to 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 an eye. I've seen this in the past through these let this legend kind of legislation where a lot of people who were qualified for relief needed didn't take it because they didn't know they were qualified or didn't know how 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 is 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 extended unemployment benefits to deployment out of limits.

Very broad doubt and it's over people who bailed out of qualified a week and 1/2 ago. You may now fight now.

So where to answer all of that out for you because we know so many questions that have been coming 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. Thanks.

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 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 might apply some of the broadcast that we previously done that answer some of these questions put in 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 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 time for our nation and our world with so many challenges facing our country.

We are take your phone calls 164, 31 to 20. Roberts called Marilyn online one present is use the language again a witch hunts that more political hoaxes even during this time in our country in the whole world is going through facing this pandemic. The economic consequences if we are facing that course politics rears its ugly head in partisanship.

Robert calling for Maryland.

Luckily Jay Sekulow live your on their I typically deal with that the Democrats are engaging again against Pres. Trump be motivating, particularly during the time of the national crisis to pick pandemic of the coronavirus. This would be the third molar report. It's a way to actually sign for really immunity to vice moments. So what there's two committees mellowed out rain and now that's enough that others there's two committees they want. Nancy Pelosi wants one that would have to be voted on by the house. By the way, they have to prove the select committee she wants it led by Jim Clyburn way endorsed Joe Biden so he's directly. Velasquez said he is in a Clyburn who said that you take advantage of a moment like this and this way you can get things you want to reshape the concept of a pandemic's quote gives the Democrats quote a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision. This committee would overlook how the spending was done because they've got some concerns about the corporate side of the spending which is actually the smaller side of this. This status I returned with the big corporations then shift once a second committee. Of course, focusing on the intelligence side. That would mean him right to look at this when the pandemic is over. As I said because I think most the belief Pres. Trump still get reelected and they will like to they would like to try and figure out a way to impeach him again keep hearing about now. There is not a joke.

I see that is a direct move to try and come up with another reason to pass articles of impeachment is present.

Trump if Democrats retain control of the house after the November elections. This interesting question from Clinton Kentucky small business owner, line 5 Clint Walker Jay Sekulow log on the air itself everything under so I will own it. In Bowling Green, and each employee is subcontracted what I'll be able to last for them to real estate onboarding dictate so they would have to do unemployment questions there actually employed what with the each individual have to well they you would not be able to apply to have them continue on your payroll because they're not on your payroll, you pay them as an independent contractor.

Now let me ask this question does them when they when someone places an order today they go through.

They pay you, they paid the artist demands the business on percentage okay and you actuate a 1099 yeah yeah they're not employees. Harry, I don't think that would qualify anything or I think your analysis is slightly cool that they would be seen as an independent contractor within the meaning of IRS regulations, and as a consequence of invading Kuwait applied. For instance, if they are laid off. Perhaps more unemployment through their state by the the individual who works to sell the artwork would not necessarily be able to pay them. Now they do qualify. They will be getting if they been filing taxes making less than the threshold so you think that stimulus checks and then you might be getting that to Clint so that check. It also is available to use that that the AF $1200 and then you is there anything there Harry anything in this for Clint take to take it seriously can continue to pay rent so you get to pay his mortgage while disclosed that under the care that small businesses can include mortgage payments. Payment of interest on any covered mortgage obligations, payments of rent payments on utility.

For instance, those things are clobbered potentially with respect to the loan program as part of the paycheck protection program and so I would urge him to look into that either through the SBA, which is probably inundated today with local panic yet that they just sent me one accident yet JI just wanted people to understand that they did reason that this is a tiered approach, there's the stimulus checks which just about everybody gets others. The small business administration was to try to keep people on payroll and then there's the dramatic expansion of the unemployment insurance for people that are able to be kept on payroll at Jane that the intention was never that everybody would get all three of those components, but they were layered in there so that everyone would get something to try to try to ease the pain here. So just because you don't qualify in 1 Particular Pl.

I want people to understand that they were layered and said that you would get something in one faction or another. So don't be discouraged if you don't get one piece of it. There's another piece of it that probably does apply to you.

I let's go ahead and let's try to get another call and not to ski area staying with us right now we continue this article had yells at a time in California. Interesting question online for Tomahawk and Jay Sekulow live your on the air. Thank you very much.

I need your help the local broadcasters the TV broadcasters in Southern California are interrupting and discontinuing the Washington briefing from the task force on the coronavirus so it prevents me in particular from getting first-hand information as to what's going on in this national crime said you have tables, no I do not I do not have cable and I do not have Internet and I do not have a smart phone.

I'm talking on a flip phone okay because C-SPAN is covering him top to bottom.

But what's happening is the networks and even the cable networks, including Fox are staying there for a little while there pulling out my Maynard back formula going back and forth and that's where were you getting the briefings before on your local TV yes on the local TV channels and I've noted them. Rather they are, they can continue. Here's my lite. The problem I have the problem they have Thomas they cancel commercials during that time they should make that are taken, a block of two and half hours and they're trying to stay in business to. I know this is difficult, but I'm innocent marauder thousand radio stations. We are on TV. We are on all the social media platforms and radio TV advertising is drying up right now it's a problem so for a local station as they were in a blackout to 1/2 hours not have commercials not outbreaks in meat. This is where the repercussions of this are real locally into what you just said the hotel industry has been decimated the travel industry has been decimated. On the other hand, I would say today, there there is a glimmer of hope and that comes from so-called central businesses, supermarkets and grocery stores, big-box stores, pharmacy, all of those essential businesses are beginning to hire individuals so Walmart, for instance, is planning to hire 150,000 hourly associates to meet increased demand during the corona virus out break Insta car is planning to hand hire up to 300,000 individuals, so there are some other economic opportunities, but part of what's going on. Of course, is businesses are taking advantage of this crisis to restructure their operating forces, and so some of the retail stores like Macy's and these other stores. They are shrinking.

On the other hand so-called central businesses are beginning to expand. I was also tell the Clint that get rid of the flip phone get a phone that can handle data because Stan is you said the press conference are being streamed on a zillion sites yet and I think I think during this time. That's great advice J because like there there are to be restrictions from typical new sources but I do you can get them all over the place online Facebook periscope twitter all different sorts of places and and by the way, it's also a great place to follow a broadcast like the one where were showing you here so I think that's good advice. During this time. You don't have to have Internet access those phones now have kind of speed to carry live video with just either the phone service I'm you think you just have to adapt to what were situations you cannot rely on the old means of communication that relies Harry said of the old means of employment I did today that on the way in. I was good. I stopped at a Walgreens quickly.

They had a couple items I needed. They had a few things I did. I was think of the way home.

I have amassed have one mask is have the designated person or house is going out right now as we come into the studio and things like that and I decided you instead of stopping by the grocery store on the way home, which is a busier place if I had to do it with young children would, but I ordered on post lights on the way in and it's arty at the house or do I need it, summing it, those kind of jobs here is talking about housemates Insta Curtis got a two day delay right now you got to their they're actually not doing deliveries until Monday. If you order today. They need to staff up. It is they say they are staffing up and you could do these jobs in your community. And right now people are actually taping more than usual. Their they're offering for do it so I bet if it's if you're young enough to do that job is a great way to start getting cash in your pocket immediately pretty quickly. 1-800-684-3110 right back on Jay Sekulow because of you success in the courts and Congress concerning the issues that matter most to you and your families ACLJ, chief counsel Jay Sekulow or decades long commitment to the Constitution and the rule of law is at the center of everything we do.

He built a move around but I like what Volkswagen is off now if you have provided hundred and 80 days before you make your first payment six months that six out. That is an interest or no interest no interest and six months to make your first payment set up for the rights to translate to emulate the they at least have something on their books coming six months from now realize that work for that to me tells you we were looking at all this and for people who are looking at this think that is big corporations like a Volkswagen. They're looking six months down the road before they think they think you can build make a payment before they can make some profit in there trying to do what they can to keep their dealerships alive and keep their inventory followed. Let's go to phones Dandie Michigan online for Dan Walker Jay Sekulow live here on the air again thanks everything the culture on my question is me and my wife all her taxes and we can do the stimulus to write what I'm hearing is so is the following year when we get we get a refund.

The government coming at that stimulus check back now is that that's not the stimulus check is a stimulus check is not taxable is not subject to to reap me call if you if you qualify for your household husband wife but you file jointly your case if you make less than hundred $50,000 hundred, 1990 file jointly you will get the two checks would be $2500 in $2400 was it 2600 that within up to what is the 1250 to 1200 per adult, 500 per hour-translate family write family of four is a $2400 minor children okay so $2400 and that's it that you get a date. It would directly deposit you decide that your music and I want to go to Harry on this because carry the idea with the stimulus is is to keep people think you're working is to keep the economy moving here. If you're getting the stimulus and you're still employed. They wanted in the economy import lease as a protection or that's the idea.

The idea is isolated to continue individual ability to purchase goods and services going forward. It's very possible.

I think Van is fact that in the next three, four, five weeks, the government will need to re-examine this, but there's really tiered approach to virtually help every single individual and business in the economy through various programs. Because really, what the objective is to ensure that the United States economy doesn't implode.

While we deal with this pandemic. At the same time, I would point out that there is a glimmer of hope coming out of countries like Italy, the number of confirmed cases is continuing to drop in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, or the decrease in the number of cases in Washington state and Maryland and other states they are reporting that they are not approaching a crisis point in terms of hospital so it is possible that by the middle of the summer within the next couple of weeks that goodness and began to clamp the bad news, but dealing with. Currently I very good things.

Eric's ears are dull over the next two weeks to answer as many questions about this as we can and you can do here to take some of the programs were to take the best questions that a been asked over the last two weeks. Put it together for you broadcast it so you have the answers to this and we can give you individual tax or legal advice but were giving you general principles that use can have an intelligent conversation with your counterattack accident are your bag sitting at the next level with the Henry and Ohio Alai five Henry Walker Jay Sekulow live your earlier I got a bunch of relaxing of the United States.

We just had a church board meeting earlier this week in regards to the cares act and how it affects the churches 501(c)(3) of the biggest concern that our congregation and our church board has is that if we accept this and apply for the loan. Don't let anybody off and it is forgivable.

Does that placed us under the antidiscrimination laws versus wealth Bible preachers against it does not etc. etc. it is not. It does not interfere with the tenancy of faith. It does not interfere with the positions that any religious order or organization or denomination would take so that does not contain a call condition precedents. In other words, if you take this money, or condition subsequent note to apply for this money you have to do this condition precedent. If you take this money, you must do that condition something does not exist here. The idea is to keep this is not to do social engineering is it to keep your church functioning. That's what the administration try to do. That's what Congress is trying to do. Thank you and I getting away gift to churches from the swamp. Yes, it is normally any nonprofits including religious organizations or churches, especially would be excluded from any of these kind of programs they want your thought about this. This is really important. Janie and Jordan both said it correctly. I been on the phone with leaders for Lisa's office this morning he is working very hard to make sure this gets applied correctly and and look some of the banks are not can be familiar with this because of what Jordan just said a typical small business administration loan religious element eligibility worksheet would apply. It does not apply to the stimulus dictators only quickly read this only two conditions apply for this loan number one whether the borrower was operational on February 15 and number two whether the borrower was paying salaries and payroll taxes at that time and I'll just follow up real quick like treasury got this right about the application in my hand right now.

The very first box at the top that you check is a place for nonprofits including churches to apply for this, only those two conditions apply under the statute. Yes, I had Henry II would not. I was on religious liberty advocate, I would not be concerned. I think you're fine now take your church functioning yet taken that's really that is the intention of this is deeply Employed as organizations ready to go.

As many of had to go online and you do their services. I know I know tithing tips are often churches, the people are there so I should Harry Heine help this and keep your staff employed. I'll scrub another call you a 164 3110 Erica New Mexico on line 3 Eric Walker Jay Sekulow live I like what the veteran and I have a child, but I don't think that might be eligible thinking I think my understanding is, if you file the tax return last year he filed tax return last year that all of you will pay taxes in the village you get you did not get a direct deposit Patty in California, 96 been home on Patty wealthy Jay Sekulow live I Patty without talking about it a lot and people trying about our government trying one round gets called Alexis that's all and not just for a couple attempts to take present.

Phone lines are open for your questions right now: 1-800-684-3110 1-800-684-3110 and now your home secure live really take your calls to your questions on covert date sponsor that the stimulus legislation. Lot of folks to 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 in 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 whispering a lot of time answering questions because legislations can be confusing announcing it's going to affect 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 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're going to be focusing on questions that you all have asked because I think it's good information to get out the American people right now and obviously you know hopefully will be any kind 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 does appear to 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 an eye. I've seen 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 to be available to them. So working to try to do through this broadcast is make sure you know what you could be eligible for and remember this is this is 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 the best American if you qualify, so you should do everything possible to check to see if you are 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 extended unemployment that assisted deployment out of limits. Very broad doubt and it's over people who made 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 there's so many questions that have been coming 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. Thanks. 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 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 way to play some of the broadcast that we previously done that answer some of these questions put in place of the interview from some of the government leaders to see and 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.

I would take your phone calls 106 3110 so many calls coming in about covert, 19 about the federal response, the state responses.

Well we are here to answer your phone calls to go in order.

People been holding all is going to fill in California online.

Five. Feel welcome to Jay Sekulow live your on the air. I felt good morning all.

For the present and Congress for coming up with this plan. Her payroll subsidies. Three things number one where is the money coming from surplus funds that we already have that kind of surplus number two are we going to pay for this by printing more money that could lead to future inflation and number three please don't tell me were going to borrow the money from China and increase our national emergency situation and comes from the treasury the general treasury funds now course, the gum is authorized to borrow is necessary, but I want to say something here fill understand something.

This is a very serious situation. There's an economic component to it. And then there's the health and well-being of the American people so what were doing when you're in an emergency situation, whether it's a war with an enemy you can see or war with an enemy you don't see in it and this is a sense is almost topper because as I said, this is your waiting for a wave of of fatalities to come knowing it's coming and doing everything you can to at least reduce the numbers, but I'll let Van address it.

I don't think it's can impact taxes people to get back to work.

We will get through this, but this is where but this is what actually government does bad yet J is the government doing what it has to do in the middle of the crisis and look there's a deficit spending and volunteer. There is, frankly, deficit spending involved in our regular budget in and yes, Congress should do a better job in between planning and preparing for emergency spending of a J the time to talk about those reforms is not in the midst of a crisis is to help bring the adults around the table in between crises and are not just talking about pandemics either hurricane spending other natural disaster, spending those kind of reforms have to happen in between. Not in the midst of the crisis right now. What you need is speed of assistance to the point of need.

Barberie's card from North Carolina on line 3 Barbary welcome to Jay Sekulow live on a plate very happy about it. I did not want the American people that all the information because they're not wrong information and I would like to be brought to their attention when life is hard.

There are the final line on the brakes and plow washed then and make your keep their people in extreme and how well Washington D Igor Denton, New York, where he our governor, the mayor looked outlier. I may or may not even hate the dabbing okay okay there's a big difference who should say North Carolina now is also a big difference between Seattle and New York City is a big city.

New York City is a huge city. Seattle did. Washington is been a great example that jumped on it very quickly. And as you see in the charts that they were tradeshow.

They actually look like they potentially could be hunted down, take down take as well so I guess people need to follow what the government is suggesting that if you do that at a minimum, at a minimum we are seeing that the mitigation is working. The mitigation works it, but it takes a significant amount of buy-in by the American people.

Let's go back to the phones of Vivian called from California online to Vivian often Jay Sekulow live wall and will kindly apply the ball rolling here doing any thanks. My question is learning.

DMD there's a lot of people that are locked myself in my driving is being renewed on an down because there's a lot of other folks have online and those are still operating so offices may be open yeah I might not not essential a lot of states of said they're going to just extend that while the real ID law is that I'm going to affect so that was supposed to go in effect in 2020 and October 2020 to get on the airplane, some in some cases voting and stuff like that to have that star on your license that's now been asked extended to 2021 deadly so so if you can do it online if you just again renewing a license. Just do it online in your local DMV to see if they're open. Most are not yet.

We should start hearing from some people that everyone yet but some people shall getting these checks, you should see it in your auto deposit your check and Not then you said that treasuries now making the payments without requiring a short-term for Social Security since it I think this is a good follow-up because P doesn't apply to Pete because he does file taxes.

But J, one of the questions that we've had repeatedly as if you're on Social Security but you don't file taxes will you have to file that short form in order to get it and treasury did a really great job in this they pull together information from two forms there. SSA 1090 and then the RR be 1090.

Basically the forms that you file to get your Social Security benefits and J they are going to use those to get your checks without filing a short form so that was a pretty impressive regulatory turnaround okay segments call Katie coming from South Carolina online.
