The stock market is plummeting. Gas prices are skyrocketing. There was an assassination attempt on a Supreme Court Justice last week. Parents can't get baby formula for their kids. These are extraordinary real world problems, but the Left appears more focused on conducting a referendum on Conservatives than addressing the problems affecting Americans. Jay and the rest of the Sekulow team discuss what's happening in - and not happening - in the Capital right now. This and more today on Sekulow.

January 6 committee hearing. Meanwhile the stock market things in Washington DC almost no lockdown around the Supreme Court about today covering a variety of topics. Senior counselor global affairs. My pump will be joining us later in the program, senior counsel, Jeff Balaban, who heads up our Druze Muppets were joining us in the next half hour, so there's a lot going on there. And of course some Supreme Court decisions today.

Not the ones that we would normally be commenting on.

But there's also a lot a people in Washington DC. I mean, good numbers are staggering front and basically blocking. We could even open our office today. Our staff is working remotely because of the number of people in Washington DC where they were to next quote shut down the Supreme Court by the way, despite shutting down the Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court issued opinions and carried on his business.

Same time across the street from our office in Washington and cross treatment. Supreme Court is the capital which is having the second round of January, six hearings, that's interesting.

But what is concerning, frankly, is while they're having hearings in their entitlement whatever hearings they want to have. Here's the problem. The stock market is down, as were on the air live almost 700 points, which means in the last two sessions. It's down almost 1500 points, which is close to 4%. Gas prices are at its all-time high. You talk about someplace that just about $70 a gallon out West coming in in where our studio is located. It's almost 6 you still have the baby formula shortage yet an assassination attempt on Britt Cavanaugh, which by the way CC pointed this out or Elliott. They pointed this out our obligor producers never made the lead story make sure I get this right never made the lead story on any of the nightly news that there was an assassination attempt in the against the Supreme Court just here you have a justice of the Supreme Court of the United States a person lurking outside his house armed with a weapon walking down the street who says that I'm in a kill the justices of the Supreme Court of the United States who's been charged with attempted murder and the left doesn't want to call it an attempted assassination. While I'd like to know if that's not an attempted assassination. What is working to get it to this and later the broadcasters actually statute on the books, 18 USC CC a good in the criminal code that said you cannot do these kind of activities around the Java course couldn't course versus I spent there were protests immediately.

Within hours of the assassination attempt being boiled, they had a protester is going on and there are laws to prohibit that it was trying to influence an opinion. That's right its title 18 federal US code 1507 it states that any individual who pickets are parades with the intent of interfering with obstructing or impeding the administration of justice or with the intent of influencing any judge or witness or court officer area escort building residents. They are guilty of this offense is a federal felony.

By the way, but Mayor Garland hasn't enforced it yet so you know, let's think about that. So you got that you got the theater going on across the street on January 6 and meanwhile they still haven't forced any a criminal code on the book designed to prohibit exactly what's going on and what's the priorities here in Washington DC talking about something that happened in the in reality and Danny literally ages ago and how are our getting gas to a reasonable level and having baby formula and having people who can buy food at the grocery store and not go home and be absolutely broke Elizabeth's anonymity. If it is a mess.

I went to your calls, 1-800-684-3110 is that we got Jeff Balaban coming up this at our next up our would be joined by Mike Pompeo. We got a lot of Kerala copper working to get into this gun proposal lets out as well that something that we want talk about the next segment so there's a lot to talk about will take your phone calls as well. At 1-800-684-3110 800-684-3110. Also, don't forget support the work of the American Center for Law and Justice you could do also signed up for all of our social world, were on twitter Facebook, YouTube, rumble proof, leaving something out. I'm sure but follow the dealer website you to do that in a sealed trade out of your calls, back to 800-684-3110 70 Washington DC date to the hearings on January 6 was focusing primarily on what the President who he was listening to what he was told whatever. You know what, here's the problem with this negative all the hearings they want. Meanwhile, it was like Rome is burning. And I say that because you had an assassination attempt against a sitting Supreme Court justice. You have the stock market today as were on is down 650 to 700 points, and mostly going lower. You have gas at an all-time high.

You have the inability for parents to get baby formula and the cost of food is also gone out of sight.

Now our government affairs office is working with Congress to try to fix some of this now. All of this is going on and all the networks are running too good.

I don't for doing that today. Actually some of the news channels that are covering it, but the January 6 hearings which you want here expired but was 18 months ago. Right now we got a crisis in this country and CCU told something before he went on the air. That is a real crisis and this is what I'm Prince were trying to and we been doing this on the broadcast regularly you know that in you all said you through your appreciated and that is real stories from real Americans that are really struggling so that's what this administration should be focusing on. But they're not because you're trying to do the distraction methods but CCU had a really heart-wrenching story asset again.

Instead of focusing on what's really going on.

Like he said there focusing on these hearings, but I have a friend that works for nonprofit and she recently posted that they have a client is a recent widow and she's going through chemotherapy and chest drive to get this treatments and she's also trying to work but her water was recently shut off, so now she's choosing between gas to get needed medical help and getting her water pain. Her water bill in getting her water back on and this is what Americans are facing rising gas prices rising food prices and they cannot make it and he again here it it's heart wrenching that you had a widow recent widowed lady who is just trying to get chemotherapy and she has to choose between having water or gas to get to her appointment first thing we similarities with what we do to help write this is what's happening you go to eat it's it's breathtaking for people. I'm it's it's mind-boggling and I as I look up and on.

You know what's on TV and watching the series and thinking.

First of all, this is kind of like impeachment.

Three just got a our colleague Jane Rask just sent us a note and Jane did a phenomenal job during the impeachment of my colleagues and Andes during impeachment proceedings and looking at this and send while I get. They want to have hearings okay. That's the politics of Washington. But my goodness, the countries in a mess right now. I mean hearings are wonderful things go ahead and have friends, but by having hearings on the question of gas and opening the pipeline and having leases and having drilling to take place in the Western on the Great Plains about having hearings on the Gasper on the food prices and the fact that your bank, eight and nine and $10 a gallon for diesel, having hearings on things that matter to the American public, having a hearing. Mayor Garland, who is talk about dereliction of duty as a person who as is Sen. cotton said basically a political partisan haggle should resign in disgrace for dereliction of duty when there's an assassination attempt on the Supreme Court justice would that have happened what he just be sitting in Washington doing nothing. If it was just a soldier, Mayor, or Justice Kagan. Is it because you Brent Cavanaugh is a conservative justice. Let's have hearings. Let's have things that make a difference does not have hearings on something that basically we've been through it's old and I'm hearing it over and over again and frankly I'm tired of it will look with good reason and lack of enforcement is an issue. So the Supreme Court's on this, like lockdown protests or streets, complete with a picture of our street. I would put this up right now in Washington DC. You cannot get down our street. These protesters are there is any indication are permitted are they just protesting what you don't get a permit to block the street lorries calling from a North Dakota on like to take a call if you want talk to us 800-684-3110 Lori go ahead. Thank you for taking my call and my frustration and listening to the protesters being out there in front of the supreme doubt in their at their homes. I don't understand why they are allowing them to be there if there if they're breaking the law where law enforcement is the reason why okay lately, with tenants occupying the White House press secretary said when she knew they were picketing out in front of their homes is what she said so. I know that there's an outrage. Right now I guess about protests that have been peaceful. To date, and we certainly continue to encourage that outside of judges homes and not the presence position so the present state is encouraging protests in front of the Supreme Court justice owned by the wife and that we have this assassination attempt to influence an opinion which it is a violation of federal law. President needs are one of his White House counsel or somebody in authority needs to read in title 18, section 1507 that says if you are trying to obstruct impure or influence and don't tell me that's not what it is any judge near a court of the United States or residence occupied by the judge then that is a federal crime. Where is the Atty. Gen. of the United States. Where is the United States Attorney for the District of Maryland.

Why are they prosecuting these people for inform protesting and trying to influence the opinion of the judge Cavanaugh in an opinion that any and come out yet. We don't know what is going to say but trying to pressure you will in the pit Is interesting the opinions authored by a leader, but that the assassination attempt was against and Budweiser's on the lips and you can call that an assassination attempt with will and when you hear the reason why well because it didn't go far enough.

The guy had a loaded weapon in front of justice Cavanaugh's house and yes there were 16 armed US marshals protecting them, but the guy called and somebody kill justice Cavanaugh to let me what else do you have to do that.

They don't want to talk about that I want to talk about the grandmother's our car drive around for the grandkids to go get formula try to find it anywhere. We had those calls last week and they like the CC gave the example of her front submit that the problem with all of this in Washington right now the course. Our office is the one that's with the picture back up there you could see our office kind of in the background there and it's we have it up.

Yeah let's get the picture up so everybody can see it and look on the left issue with a white building is in red on white building, but you're saying there's one of our sleep, a couple there but by this report.

As you see, our home is on fire is what these people are protesting about reproductive freedom and that means in a pro abortion group but they're blocking the street that already has to have blocks up to keep protesters away because the causing harm. This is what's going on. It's ridiculous and in I look at that banner that says our home is on fire. Well it is but not for the reason that they are not paying our home is on fire because the gas prices because of inflation because we have an assassination attempt on a Supreme Court justice and we do nothing. In fact, we had the Biden administration encouraging people to go and pick it and in front of their houses so are our home is on fire, but not for the reasons that they are saying no were take your calls at 800-684-3110, 1-800-684-3110.

And here's the President's explanation for why all this foods out-of-control in all of the gas pressure under control.

Blame Vladimir Putin, who never seen anything like Putin's tax both food and gas. America should also understand our economy has unique strengths that we can build on the job market is a strong as his grandsons will to. Notwithstanding inflation is right that the there's jobs. The problem is they can't keep up with inflation in blaming this Andy on poop for pathology, study history, why did we let ourselves get into the situation were energy independent.

Two years ago and exporter of energy. Now we are begging OPEC begging the Saudis to get more oil production into the United States and the Saudis are telling us we don't want to talk to you. We sent a delegation secretive Venezuela.

They don't August 11 call the present United States called Saudi Arabia and they say were not taken the call. He says he's going to go over there to try to bang them hand-in-hand to produce oil in greater quantities through OPEC nights. I wouldn't want to see you went while whittling. Liz and Whitley Simi Venezuela.

Not exactly an ally, not exactly analogous should not an ally, not an ally and those we had a 100 million that the President of the United States shut down as soon as he got office to pander to the part left of his party. I would go ahead and talk to Rebecca very quickly during the year, Rebecca. Go ahead like all I really believe that the American people already loaded November boat out many of the people I wake activated. Do you feel like we will have a fair and free election. I do, but I think there's been procedures put in place to ensure election integrity and the fact of the matter is I just had a that you're having primaries around the country that are taking place as more tomorrow. The really has not been reported irregularities so I think it's fine.

I think it's good to have election integrity laws in place, but it does not's that should not be reason for people not to vote now absolutely let me tell you there was the present United States said there was voter suppression in Georgia over a terrible thing. The voter suppression Georgia Lord Georgia legislature passed a law with respect to this and had our last primary in Georgia in May. It was the biggest turnout in the history of Georgia politics is that the suppression of voting with the new law. No, it's not the President needs to wake up and stop making statements like this statement, which I don't understand.

We should understand our economy has unique strengths that we can build on what you mean by that. What is that statement mean have you strength.

You can build on means nothing. J will coming up. We got another issue that is over Israel that Embassy in Jerusalem by administration. That's a lot about that Dr. Jabal Bonner, Dir. of her office in Jerusalem. We come back from break 1-800-684-3110 will take your calls. back to normal. This is JPEG programs were covered a lot of issues. You remember the excitement when Pres. Trump announced the move of the embassy of Israel that we are American Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. There was a Jerusalem Embassy act of 1995. That was the previous present was the first one that put that into all play. I was there. The problem is there and you were there was a momentous day. The concern when you have elections as there's consequences.

One of the consequences is that I'm very concerned about Jeff is running her office in Jerusalem now just got back from Jerusalem is Jeff this move now to open up a Palestinian consulate American consulate for Palestinian affairs in Jerusalem.

So basically, going back to this kind of divided Jerusalem mentality and after employee and the American government now currently dating we no longer care about the sovereign.

There is that we don't care about Israel's sovereignty. Israel is sovereign because their capital.

It's the only country in the world that being treated this way and even the clip that we deterred showing the segment you looked at the framing of the occupied East Jerusalem occupied if not occupied, it was occupied by the Jordanian after they lost a war against the state of Israel and reunified Israeli training and treating Mark Mark Reasonable spokesman. Here's a thought, every terrorist is not an elected official. There was an election a long long time ago you told election and ministration dedicated to giving them minimum equality is outrageous, but actually partly over our ally liberal modern individual Bosque has hosted a US delegation led by the Assistant Secretary of State for near Eastern affairs affairs. Barbara left ahead of expected visited by Pres. Biden. What's interesting to me about this is there was unbelievable changes happening in the Middle East mean incredible changes happening in the Middle East. Exciting changes happening in Middle East, including in this. I think Andy was so significant. You had the Gulf states all of a sudden part of this Abraham accords where you had the Gulf states partnering with Israel and the Saudis, although not part of the REMIC or jet habit have already increased their relationship. These are tremendous steps the President from taken through his staff and through the initiative that he employed in the Abraham Accords and he had what we have done in the United States under Pres. Biden's turn our back on those J and we have rejected those we have not foster those we have not promoted those we have not worked to achieve the goals of those records which would have given economic opportunities in peaceful opportunities to Palestinians to Israelis into the Gulf states.

We just rejected them and walked away from that it's it's it it's a really huge mist unlock it just takes a tragedy because that's not fair. It's a huge mistake.

Now interestingly at the UN were very active and sees. He does a lot of work in our UN work. The anti-Israel initiatives that come up in the UN are more than any other country in the world, including China and North Korea, Cuba, Venezuela, Israel is always the one that's attacked, yet they are the most quote liberal in the right way. Democracy in the region absolutely, and we just did a review on the UN has a commission of inquiry to fact-finding mission. And of course aimed at at Israel once again and they we just reviewed that report and it's ridiculous. We point out that it's clearly biased and that's on and and it should be seen for what it is it's anti-Semitism and a distortion of facts and that's all you get from the UN, even including when they talk about Palestine as a state that is not something that is is true that is not a true statement. The UN does not recognize them as a state and even Palestinian leaders acknowledge becoming a state is only an aspiration and that's their own leaders like Jeff going back to you just in her office in Jerusalem but going back to that.

What's the sense on the street now about the situation and how concerned are people Israel about this move. With the Palestinian consulate coming back all across the board would be really an extreme extreme far left is really popular as a whole understand they would've long and they would still love for there to be real peace, but the only peace between happened when their strength and when Israeli sovereignty is recognized and there is actually a better life for everyone in the region.

The Jews and the Arabs in Israel and outside and they cedar it seems to be a push for me it was a news report today on Palestinian television that depositing Prime Minister Mohammed Strayer said that there is no country that continues to give support to the Palestinian Authority except for Algeria which means the entire Arab world understand that the talking authority is nothing but a platform for terror and the destruction of Israel and the West.

The liberal Western Europe and America 13th St. cropping up these terrorist and that's with the 200 and Israel.

They know what their society. It is a peaceloving society is an integrated society without injury and and and and around the world are people like you and and in America and in Western Europe. 13 for trying to bring it back into a state of war. Never forget those on the left saying all of the United States recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel were to have a war in the Middle East like you've never seen. Meanwhile, what did you have in the Middle East. What took place. The largest peace process more so than Camp David, more so than the Oslo Accords because you had countries actually signing onto it and supporting it and then you ask yourself this question. How in the world did this happen that in one election cycle. So much can change, but the reality is to understand the Middle East. You have to think nine dimensional you think a lot of step moves ahead and I will say this were to be joined by my pump and when asking this adding a question for list of questions irony up. We had so much progress, and it seems like we are stepping back so aggressively and putting us in a much more vulnerable place as a country suggest that the question I want to end with eras.

We always want action were taking action in Washington were were we got a petition up by what got an email out today if you don't get our emails folks go to and sign up today.

It studied UN just released a brand-new attack on our ally, Israel, the human rights Council meeting today just released a commission report vilifying Israel for defending itself where responding and Jeff. It is critical that we respond by and no part of what I do daily in Jerusalem is Israeli not just the street official from the government. From the connector provider they want to understand why America is very important, obviously counterproductive. They don't understand and that you are looking very difficult for Israel to speak up for anything negative about America doing course like that was happening across the board is causing the worst kind of consternation names in the grass and for some reason, his frustration is dedicated to pulling it away and to combat the war Jeff. We appreciate your Belmont senior counsel for Jerusalem office. Let me say this, we got an email out today. We got a petition up on that

Sign it. I will find out how many designed to so far. Let's take a look at that I like to know where we are on the want to decided to go over to ACLJ dollars. By the way Mike Pompeo coming up on this next half-hour so purely for social media platforms share the speed with your friends right now really important that you do that three or more people involved. We made a lot of progress on the Israel front were to continue to fight for Israel. It's also fighting for the United States when you do that either. The international criminal court on behalf of Israeli issues and positions so I believe we we understand this back with normal ACLJ is been on the frontline protecting your freedom and rights in court in Congress and in the public arena. The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side.

If you're already a member. If you're not well this is the perfect time to stand with us,, where you can learn more about our life-changing work become a member today ACLJ keeping you informed and now is a secular busy day in Washington DC vertically around the world Belmont from her Jerusalem office for Zanzibar Jerusalem office about what's going on there and talk about that and by the way, 473,000 said that number again 473,000 if you've signed our petition to stand with Israel.

Israel is being attacked today at the human rights Council and the UN, the ACLJ's already filed responses, we will be filing more responses and intervening to encourage you to go to and sign the petition right now to stand with Israel. As I said were approaching 1/2 a million people so that is a great it's entitled defend Israel from anti-Israel tax across the globe. This one coming from across the globe in the form of the United Nations. We have a shutdown going on in the put the picture up on the screen.

This is our all this is our street right behind the Supreme Court of the United States there.

The protesters are not being moved away.

Of course, other pro-life protesters. I might be and our buildings on one side and the spring ports on the other and the protesters there because they said it was that the Supreme Court down. Interestingly, they tried but this report was able to switch opinions today. At the same time across the street. We have the January 6 hearings going on, which is fine except instead of focusing on that. Somebody should be focusing on gas at six dollars a gallon begging Venezuela of all countries in Saudi Arabia to produce more so that we don't have it get even higher, which is going to inflation's at 8.6%. The stock market is down. Still, as we live for an hour now 665.2% was down 2% on on Friday. Sue +4% for 1/2% in two days. Better not focusing on Washington grabbing hearings on what happened 18 months ago which was terrible so prosecute the people that did it, but don't stop the functioning of government which unfortunately is happening now.

There is also some bipartisan gun legislation being proposed that actually looks like we haven't seen the bill looks promising as commonsense measures we talked about before, and there's a lot of Republican supporting it will go into that in the next segment of the broadcast organ to get up to that, but I don't want to go for a moment the fact that we had an assassination attempt last week against Brett Cavanaugh similar for not calling an assassination attempt. Anti-sing it and go far enough. Now we have to kill him in order to have an assassination attempt. That's basically what it is. It's got to succeed in order to be an assassination. You know Pres. Roosevelt Franklin D Roosevelt was the subject of an assassination attempt in Miami after he was elected President of the 30s and the mayor of Chicago was killed in the in his place by accident, was that not an assassination attempt. You gotta be a public official holding a public office, exercising your public duties and someone has to try to kill you that after succeed in killing you. That is a federal crime. Okay, it's also a crime under state law, acquire a crime under the law of Maryland were just his Cavanaugh lives and he wasn't even want the one who drafted the draft of the length of thing and it was Justice Alito, but merely after Brett Cavanaugh for me. Mother is laws on the books that you can't get a judges house right to influence opinion which is exactly what they said they would end up like this again by an administration encouraging it so I know that there's an outrage. Right now I guess about protests that have been peaceful.

To date, and we certainly continue to encourage that outside of judges homes and not the President's position peaceful. To date, until then you have a session about what no network live with that story. That was one of the other justices little just to think they might, but there is laws cc remains in the stroller. There's laws on the books that prohibits this, but Merrick Garland has to actually enforce them right so what's interesting to me is she literally says we want these protest we are want us to continue and that's the President's position right so he is advocating breaking the law and I think what were lit dealing at the January 6 hearings I isn't that the same thing the President advocating breaking the law and you guess right it's an allegation. This is black and white. She said that is what is preventing one law 100 Pro doesn't pronounce to influence opinion which is exactly what the law prohibits, but Merrick Garland department. Justice isn't doing that he's putting out you know these fees. Whatever he is doing.

Maybe the prosecute the guy that don't try to kill Justice, I will take your calls. We come back in hundred 684-3110 minutes of this gun issue next to Michael and Bill coming up with us in the next segment. Alright, so there was agreement between the public and the Democrats on some gun legislation bipartisan working group. What is interesting is looming to be the good ratings of the 10 centers so far that were in this group is working group. The Republicans John Cornyn was an A+ rating from Texas A+ rating from the NRA. Roy Blunt, a rating from the Missouri Missouri if you would be correct got as an a rating from the rich burn North Carolina A+ Bill Cassidy Louisiana a Susan Collins main B Lindsay Graham, South Carolina, a Rob Portman Ohio eight, Utah eight Tom Tillis a the only one that has a lower rating a C rating is Pat Toomey from Pennsylvania.

He's actually and he's leaving so let's talk about what they're doing because I think some of this makes sense, but we will not know if it makes sense until you see the legislation but I don't think it interferes with the second member, the first thing is, and this is I think everybody agrees with the call red flag laws provides resources to states to create and administer laws that help ensure deadly weapons are kept out of the hands of individuals whom a court has determined to be a significant danger to themselves or others consistent with state and federal due process and constitutional protection.

So it has to be in the court precedents that I think is very important. We have to ensure that that person has been held to be a danger to himself or herself or others. Consistent with federal due process and constitutional protections, which means after notice and a hearing.

In other words, is not an arbitrary cessation of the ride to possess a firearm, but after you have been given notice of what it is that this is the reason for you not being allowed to do this in an opportunity to be heard by a judge. Those are important constitutional safeguards notice and hearing it into you were US attorney are also a district attorney right that people can get guns in their art that we can do some things to help, but become less all yeah bad people do get guns they get guns and we have to take that.

Make sure as this particular provision says that the court has determined there a danger to themselves and others consistent with due process protections that are afforded to people but bad people do get guns I mean people that I've prosecuted for murder cases that guns and should Nevada right so this this goes to that but also protect secondment rights.

I think this is a common sense approach. There's also investment in children family health services because so much of this CC were seeing his or mental health issues involved. Yes, and I think we see that over and over, especially in school shootings that the mental health issues and and that's one of the things that that the NRA actually agrees with as well. In their statement they want to encourage elected officials to provide more resources to secure the schools fix our severely broken mental health system and support law enforcement and those are common sense. You know steps that can be taken and actually some of those concepts steps common sense steps are taken, and this agreement. So the agreement is not legislation as we pursue the actual legislation, but there is something that I have, but we have been advocating the ACLJ in this up in our official position that is heartening. The target hardening the target at the school.

This is number five in the gonadal order here number five in the proposal that will hopefully have the legislation. Here's what it says invest in programs to help Institute safety measures in and around primary and secondary school support school violence prevention efforts and provide training to scoop school personnel and students. This will prize provide money and I think needs to be more specific. So I think the language needs to be a little bit more specific here for school resource officers that is armed police trained law enforcement in the schools and to me, that should be priority one harden the target now. I want that to this adjuster.

Summary summits that may already be in there. I want that and to be clear legislatively were to go to work on it that it provides money for school resource officer really need school resource officers. The news is full of shootings and killings that have taken place at schools the children are being sent to school to learn to be educated their teachers cannot provide them with guns and ammunition to the teachers to do this job of safety prevention. We need the had to have school resource officers we used to call him school policeman, whatever you want to call them people who are trying to protect the children who have gone to school to learn from the efforts of people who go crazy in these schools to try to kill him and to annihilate them, and we need to do that and as you say J, we want to see what the text of the legislation is but that is a good idea.

Investing in those programs for safety measures around schools and to provide for an increase in school safety officers trained personnel very significantly. I think I think the most. This was interesting is this from Dana Bash, our database and befriend mine from CNN. Here's what she said she said and asked something I got from a Republican aide involved in these negotiations. He said this agreement is in principles, not legislative tax meaning in English we don't have the details on this and this ain't says details will be critical for Republicans, particularly the firearms -related provisions want to have more one or more of these principles could be dropped if the text is not agreed to. So it's very delicate down. That's right, there's a lot of work still to do to take this framework agreement and reduces legislative language. I totally agree. I think Dave's question was really will put I will say this, and this is where I think it becomes very important. What's the key here and I think this is a key is to make sure the language is right and that's one of things were looking at, especially as it comes to school resources.

Officers are also going to do this is an interesting one on 18-year-olds being able to.

There's not a ban on assault weapons here, but they saying under proposal eight for buyers under 21 years of age requires an investigator. Review juvenile mental health records, including checks with state databases and local law enforcement before someone under 21 can get a particular kind of weapon in the I think that's another common sense approach. I common sense approach and makes sense so many people that I've prosecuted for murder there was in the community in South Georgia. A gun that was used and stashed in a mailbox somewhere and it was the community gun, and when you wanted to go after somebody, and kill them. You know where to go to pick up the gun, 15.14-year-old 12-year-olds people of minor ages like that would simply go there take the gun and had wet ammunition and then go into their crime and put the gun back. Those are people who should not have access to God. And this was very important because this is a big problem and that is crackdowns on criminals who illegally straw purchase and traffic guns.

We know the trafficking tray whether sex trafficking, drug trafficking, weapon traffic being come through the border goes up the expressways. It's a huge problems there needs to be stronger penalties for what's called a straw purchaser someone buys they say they're buying for themselves easy but they're really buying it for somebody else so that been the background checks become meaningless as so cracking down on criminals getting guns.

I think everybody would be for that. The problem is it's the criminals that relate do you know how to go around all the laws to get the gun, so you know that's gonna be interesting to see how they can structure the language and enforce it would take her calls were talking mobile dogma weapons. Unfortunately, the question given Joseph Cavanaugh Diane from the bottom line to Dan Gregor on their boundary. I call this guy. I noticed that she would mentioned about where the Atty. Gen. you know when these crimes are being committed or suggested by our President that any of us can do or that Judge Cavanaugh can do about that circumstance, even in the Senate. Is there anything they can do about faith, not really, because the the separation of powers, executive branch, separate from the legislative branch does not and he have the authority to prosecute no later than a majority in the Senate saying this terrible, it's do something they can't send out the Marshall's prosecution is part of the executive branch of government Department of Justice.

They have had to design Sarah Garland, who should be out there doing something drastic with respect to this assassination them of justice. Cavanaugh is not something the valves of the Senate can do and certainly not the judiciary that you don't shoot. You shouldn't have to ask a person who has been the target of an assassination attempt. That person shouldn't have to go hat in hand to the Atty. Gen. United States and say, will you please prosecute this person tried to kill me. The public outrage. That's what she should happen. We, the public should be so outraged about this that Garland doesn't have an option but to go after you know these perpetrators and prosecute them and I thinking of voting is another way to show your outrage so make sure every election.

People get out there and vote and it makes a difference. I'd like to see some some common sense measures put in place or that's been our position.

We can make sure the language I want to make sure on the number five funding for school safety resources that includes school safety resources officers maybe it does all or maybe the language will have that we want to make sure, and that's what our ACLJ government affairs office coming up missing accounts for global affairs Mike Pompeo would be joining us with a lot of talk about globally with him, including the situation in Nigeria which is a mess possible. Talking about Israel and also about inflation. So lot ahead sure the speed with your friends. Don't forget support the work of the American Center for Law and Justice could be that it it's ACLJ.ORT support our work, allowing us to continue this fight go to that's ACLJ.become part of a team sure the screen with your friends on social media would be back with the last segment in just a moment what the impact went to and were now joined by our senior counsel for global affairs or secondary state Mike Pompeo by going to be in studio with us at the end of this week which would be great. Looking forward to having you in here Mike you have a brand-new piece up on my administration must act on Christian persecution in Nigeria under your administration and we were working on this with you. God Nigeria was listed as a country of of primary concern CPC. The bite administration takes it off me while we got horribles cases of religious tyranny going on persecution and unbelievable ways. What's your sense of where we are on this right now. Thank you for being an important part of making religious freedom and the problems of the persecution of Christians. A major topic with the ACLJ because it was very helpful.

Staked out the back of folks like you. J but they got backwards we we identified a factual observation that this is a country that we should be very concerned about religious freedom and the administration came in for reasons unknown and lifted that designation at that. That makes it awful different account of the leaders of that country that America is not watching anymore until we sing it right 50 Nigerian Catholic skill while attending masses past week, tragedies across the space below salon argument flying herdsmen, terrorizing and extorting Christians.

There it become a more dangerous place, a less tolerant place with people crack in the paper being persecuted in ways that are far worse than they were during my time in office.

III regret we got backwards and taken the step back away from exerting what America's influence could be for humanity and religious freedom around the world.

Security cc policy Council is here who does a lot of international work and on this issue in nature. We been involved in for a long time. We were stunned when this administration made that change.

We've represented clients in these countries. This a very difficult situation so you have Nigeria, where Christians killed for their faith every two hours I were more Christians were killed this past year in Nigeria than any other country and all the Christian deaths worldwide 80% of them occur in Nigeria and why this country is not on the CPC list is ridiculous.

Okay, so Mike that's a question I want to ask you, why did they take it off. Difficult I can't find a good reason for having taken a bath with a factual matter or moral matter.

I will say for a long time State Department walked away from this issue that wanted to. This is a intertribal flight that was disconnected from faith usually best for many many years at the State Department. They'd rather characterize it as can't we all get along been deeply deeply intolerant deeply in the case of vigilante somatic here anti-Christian activity being first prosecuted because the people that expert use of their own fate because people afford that I am at you I'm a Christian. That's what's going on here I think is either State Department, but rather a converter gave from that and that's much to America's shame. So I want to jump to this remote because I was there. You were there any animal ecology or was there when the truth the embassy in Jerusalem was opened up was a start day on the left was screaming.

This is due to bring rewards good to bring disaster to Middle East and explode me while we had more peace accords.

If you put Camp David and Oslo.

Together they did equal the Abraham accords so we had all of this. So I go back to this question Mr. Sec., that is why in the world in that situation, then would you put in place. Another note there that are talking about rolling back the embassy recognition and there also opening up a now a consulate which you view all enclosed quote Palestinian affairs because the embassy should handle all Israelis affairs, why are they doing that and how bad of a movie is that the danger will have to think up an illegal move under the 1995 law but more importantly, when we don't have we don't have consuls and embassies in the same city anywhere else in the world. Amb. the United about Israel can manage the affairs of all Israeli people, including those that are living in Judea and Samaria closed other parts of Israel no doubt that that set of issues can be managed by the embassy itself like they're moving back because this is the traditional left-wing policy of failing to acknowledge that the challengers the Palestinians binoculars really equivocation is a moral equivocation between the two really dangerous move. Whitmore did not break out when we believe that embassy awarded out breakout when we withdrew from the JCP I Wharton didn't break out what was struck often Somali what America does the right thing to protect its own citizens and to recognize the fundamental reality that Israel's delightful homeland of the Jewish people. When we forget that right.

J good things flow from that to go back and put a consulate that is the most some hours in a deal independently with the Palestinians.

Apart from the rightful holders of that real estate the Israeli nation and the Jewish people. That is really dangerous to the United States of America walked back by the old Palestinian affairs. The was the then the consulate and what's interesting tosses you we were also at the event. We did a lot of work in Israel. It's like this administration doesn't understand that with Israel. You gotta think the Middle East generally nine dimensional have tried I want to dance the secretary Pompeo what sort of signal does this send the world when you've got an embassy and a consulate in the same city within my late children within you know striking distance walking. I should say distance and your your bifurcating the work of the United States with respect Israel on one hand, and Palestine. Palestinians, on the other.

What sort of signal does that send to the world about how America feels about Israel and method that I think correctly.

The leadership perspective gendered oratory wanted it they fundamental misunderstanding of the nation of Israel and its importance to the United States of America and attract people of every ever have a great Muslim Christian Jews like you write a couple hundred yards apart to establish a causal somehow signal that this is an independent nation wholly apart from Israel, and I was there just a couple weeks ago I was injured in fumaric traveled from Nazareth doubt that she but she had run. Those are places that are inside of Israel into the have a consulate that is separate from embassy sitting inside of Jerusalem is a tragic signal to the world and I will discourage others from making peace with Israel rather than promote peace and stability in the region. Last question is, we see this week and that is the economy January 6 hearings in our day to her going on.

Meanwhile the stock markets down 665 points 1500 points in the last two days and gas is almost 6 dollars a gallon here. It's much more in the West and other major cities and and parents can find baby formula failed policies nicely.

Elections have consequences like this is in exactly this is exactly what happens when you have an election with consequences. Evidence of anybody you to comply cannot we think about the American people about family and how they met is that government when it sets policy drives outcomes you are. We are living that nightmare today. Food is expensive. I was with a group of folks last week whose kids played on travel soccer team have to game to be Can't afford to drive to the away games for the kid that if these are intentional. These intentional policies. This didn't happen readily. It is the question. This is Pres. Biden inflation hundred percent correct my things real with us. Look forward to seeing you this week folks to support the ACLJ allows us to have experts like Mike Pompeo as part of our team senior counselor global affairs for Secretary of State.

We encourage you to support the work of the ACLJ ACLJ.4 gives a course tax deductible you do that ACLJ Donald also signed a petition worth 173,000 we really need to get the 500,000 support of Israel will be very helpful for team is that the UN working on this and usually some other issues, 1-800-684-3110 is always the number to have in your written down somewhere when you want to ask us a question some of you did today and will talk to you tomorrow, but again for updated information
