Today on Sekulow, the Manchin Confession. The Inflation Reduction Act won't help inflation.

We'll talk about that and more today on Sekulow. Inflation Reduction Act, we know misleading. That's typical in Washington DC. What's usually not typical is that politicians continue to mislead usually after the fact. So even when you know, okay this is a bill about Inflation Reduction Act, it's obviously it's like they throw in what is the biggest issue we got to deal with.

Let's just call it that and then put all of our crap in it. A green new deal, put in this, put in that, put in this, but you know this tax hike and 87,000 new IRS seats, but they usually stay on message. So they'd still try to be selling you even after they signed it, especially with the midterm coming up, that no this will actually do more for inflation, it will help. But take a look, Joe Manchin is the reason we have this behemoth.

I hope people are clear on him now. We've been preaching that the caution Joe Manchin on this broadcast forever. I don't know if he's going to run again or not, but people should remember this and remember this moment when he's asked about his bill on inflation reduction, what happens? Is it misleading to call this the inflation reduction act for Americans when it's not going to make their grocery bill cheaper? It's not going to make everyday goods cheaper for them.

Why would it, why would it, well immediately it's not, but we never said anything happened immediately like today it's turned the switch on and off. I mean listen, Joe Manchin, again he shows his true colors, he's a Democrat, tried and true, big spender, big taxer, big federal bureaucracy, but the fact Logan that he literally said why would it was the initial response to how will the inflation reduction act help inflation, why would it? Like you said, it's now they're spinning it, they're changing it, it's no longer the inflation reduction act. We've started to hear that sort of in the press, they started calling it inflation reduction act, they started calling it things to do with the environment and things to do with energy. We're hearing those terms being thrown around. You're not hearing inflation reduction act very much anymore, but it's hilarious and sad at the same time because it's what we said it was and when we say these things a lot of people you know laugh and say well how could you say that what it's called the inflation reduction act, but that is just the truth. There's another bite here I think we'll just put in the chat.

Will, should we play that bite? Let's hear this. This is from or it's from CNN, it's a montage, a montage of all the news organizations talking about this now inflation reduction act that won't help inflation. They called it the inflation reduction act as a marketing device in part to lock down the vote of Joe Manchin.

The inflation reduction act basically speaks to what everybody's concerned with right now, kitchen table, checkbook items. This is marketing branding genius. Completely marketing tool. That was a title that seemed to work better than build back better. That's coming from everywhere you're hearing that on Fox, CNN, MSNBC, multiple times I'm saying oh this was just a marketing tool, this is just a name to make you know normal Americans sound better. So people didn't like build back better because that was immediately seen as just a huge gigantic government spending bill at a time when no one wanted that.

So they just renamed it and and tried to name it something that everybody would like which is less inflation. Which again preying on the fact that most people aren't tuned into broadcasts like ours. Most people most voters go how dare they. So they but they're what they're hoping is that okay you guys get educated about it maybe but most voters won't and they'll still see the name and they'll like the name and they won't actually mind the green new deal. Now when people learn the inflation reduction act means that there's 80,000 more IRS agents.

Polls have shown and we'll get it that we come back from the break we'll take your calls to 1-800-684-3110. The polls have shown that people do not like more than half the likely voters so they're less likely to vote for a member of congress who voted for this when they learn what's in it. Even Bernie Sanders was like it's going to do nothing. It's going to do nothing but hurt people.

People like that on both sides going you know this is ridiculous they even called this the inflation reduction act. We're going to keep playing clips and really exposing the hypocrisy that is not only now speculative it is admitted it is confessed. We're going to take your calls right now how do you feel about it 1-800-684-3110 that's 1-800-684-3110.

All right welcome back to Secular. We are taking your phone calls too on this at 1-800-684-3110. More on the raid as well and President Trump. We're going to talk to Mike Pompeo but we haven't had a chance yet to talk to our senior counsel for global affairs the ACLJ former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

He's going to be joining us second half hour of the broadcast live to talk through and he's also got a new piece up at you should check out because he's got a unique insight into this. He's on the Benghazi committee we're going to ask about that so investigating Hillary Clinton and then after that you know the bleach bit that's smashing the phones. No raid on any Clinton homes which is it's actually shocking that the Clintons have gotten through most of life without a raid considering what's happened around them. How many people around them have been raided including their top aides but you've got that aspect of it too and then also he was at the highest levels of security running the CIA. So what's going on in these law enforcement agencies like the FBI I think it'll be a unique insight into today remember the trial is going on later on this afternoon on just the hearing on releasing the affidavit and some of the other documents again we went through all that in detail yesterday so we'll wait to see what happens in court. Now President Trump has talked about potentially Logan releasing the video of the raid now because they had cameras on like security cameras on but then the government has gone there's also like a flip to that which is the government there's been news that possibly the reason why they raided was because of something that they came up on the security cameras that was leaked to them from inside the Trump world like somebody outside of the locked area. Yeah gate access or something like that. Or they just didn't like the amount of people I don't even know and we don't know if that's correct but it's interesting to see because it was a long it was nine hours and they were supposed to be going after specific documents and it says open-ended so it calls questions about that too we're taking those as well we got to as many as we could yesterday though if you have calls about the affidavit hearing today what to expect which is a little bit when it comes to President Trump and this group expect the unexpected you know the reality has kind of changed maybe nothing is shocking anymore to a lot of you but I think again we will get likely a decision on that today and it usually doesn't happen usually you don't get these documents but we will see so if you got questions about that too give us a call we want to help everybody understand these processes that are going on that's 1-800-684-3110. I want to go back to Manchin though because this is what you are up against in in midterm elections especially when people are quasi tuned in but also kind of make the decision to vote like that day if they didn't do like early voting in states that have that and so they're not necessarily as up to speed like what people are doing and so when you get past a piece of legislation that is so misleading in its title at a time when people are looking for any kind of relief possible I mean I think that's the thing if people just believe the title they're going to think they'll thank the Democrats yeah exactly everybody's hurting why wouldn't you want it look this is what they always do it they always do an inflation why wouldn't you want inflation reduction everyone wants inflation reduction and it's always usually there's that portion of the bill and then it's packed with a bunch of stuff you don't want and then they make Republicans and look vice versa as well sometimes look like the bad guy because you you know you voted against it obviously this past with only Democrats with only Democrats including the ones who are supposed to be the ones that are your friends including Joe Manchin but then you look at this situation here where they are not only you know going out there and talking about this they are changing the verbiage they are changing the tone and the words being spread they're so no longer saying is as often as they can they're not saying inflation reduction they're saying energy they're saying you know all these different things that are they are environmental and it changes the terms and when they change the terms it's okay that they're spending a bunch of money and it's okay that it doesn't help the actual cause of the bill the name that they put out there it's to trick people it's to trick Americans and that's just fact and they're now saying it out loud that's always the part that drives me insane now is now it's no longer this uh you know thought process that's in there and weird it is they are actually saying things like Joe Manchin coming out saying specifically no it's not going to help inflation and that's not a detractor that's the guy who pretty much made it happen he got the first pin yeah take a listen to the director of the national economic council that's inside the white house Brian Deese by 14 on the point that you made about the timing when people will start to see relief you know some of the provisions of the inflation reduction act are going to help really immediately the provisions that give consumers tax rebates or tax credits for going out and buying more energy efficient heaters or energy efficient appliances those are enacted immediately all right first of all we'll do a flashback here yeah but you the only thing he could point to in getting inflation reduced is you going and spending more money on items that are overpriced right now and that you can't get anyways so if you went in to go with these high-tech models for any kind of you know heater systems all that unless you luck out and somebody bought one and returned it back from like the the building site because they didn't need it or it wasn't the right model they needed you're going to be on like a list and maybe it'll come in a year so the way to induce I love that the democrat way to reduce inflation is go out spend money on overpriced goods right now and then you might get a tax rebate this is a this this is like sending the coupons from the from your from your cereal box and you might get a toy it feels like a pyramid scheme you know it feels like it is if you if you get someone to sign up and then they get someone to sign up and then they get someone to sign up and then guess what then we're all making money well it's gonna first we need you to spend first we need you to buy it overpriced you gotta buy the pack you gotta buy the intro pack which doesn't exist yeah because that's it's back you know it's it's stuck in in china somewhere and or in some boat at at it you know on transport so we'll take your calls to 1-800-684-3112 we got a call out of i want to do the flashback yeah but we do have a call from west virginia uh reese in west virginia online too hey reese hey how are you guys we're good you know it's a funny thing can i go ahead yeah you're on the air okay uh it's a funny thing we called uh senator mansion's office before the vote and i had a real good conversation with a staff member and she was so convinced that this this thing was going to reduce inflation this is you know the end all this is the answer to everything i could not convince her for anything so while it may be a good marketing ploy uh i'm not so sure they don't they didn't truly believe this thing well i think this is the issue with senator mansion and i know people in west virginia reese they like him he's horrendous he's probably the worst member of congress because he lies to his constituents and he lies to the american people and he just this may be his biggest lie of his career just think i just want you to understand do not think that they don't know what they're doing so i mean his his junior staff in the senate who are on the phone with you still know that it's really about the green new deal they still know it's really about spending more on green energy and tax hikes on the rich which means uh everybody because there's going to be more agents out there but don't worry some are just filling in for others you know it's getting flagged on facebook now and other other social media to say that there's going to be 80 87 000 new irs agents though there are in the budget for 87 000 new agents what they're saying is and this is how ridiculous fact checking is gay well some people are going to quit and so some will just be replacements well yes but 87 000 people are not quitting the irs to tomorrow no so yeah it's some people of course you're going to be filling in obviously yeah there's people that are retiring there's people that are moving on in their careers but most of most of this is for new agents to get i mean they told us this is why i can't believe it's being flagged because they said they're going to look for new revenue if they already had the people to do that they wouldn't need this money they could get the revenue so they need people to go out who are new so that's not just filling old spots so i i think again but it's being flagged because they know it's one of the most vulnerable issues they have in the election people don't like the irs even before they were targeting you because your political beliefs okay so they don't like it so when you poll people and you actually tell them this this is how they get vulnerable and the democrats right now are experiencing kind of a bump in the polls so they are very nervous that this becomes a narrative i think they don't want the narrative to be about the irs they want the narrative to be you know we're only going after rich people and gas was five dollars now it's four now it's just under four i mean in a world where two years ago gas was a buck fifty but we're still you know they're taking the high road they're saying look at the high road they're taking all the wins and saying look we brought it down we brought down your gas prices now it's only 200 higher than it was just a couple years ago doesn't that feel good doesn't that make you feel better about it we all we all lived through what that looks like it's it's a ridiculous win and that seems to be the continual problem they create the problem and then just solve ten percent of it which makes them look good which then bumps the numbers up a little bit like you said they're seeing a little bit of resurgence right now and i think that's something we got to talk about really got a minute left here is what this looks like in the next few months you're going into the midterms you're going into election season uh you know for conservatives it's not a good time for them to have a bump uh because this is when it starts getting very real yeah you don't want the democrats peaking your opponents peaking when you're getting very close now it's it could be too early because a couple months a lot can happen i mean like a thing like a raid on a former President's home could change a lot of things people learn more about the act and they realize we just you know funded the irs people get a little more honest depending on where inflation goes but it depends on where things like that go and you want to be rooting for your country to recover regardless of who's you know in politics but at the same time they they can mess with that too by spending more and then getting things down by making you feel like you've got more to spend so take your phone calls a lot of calls coming in 1-800-684-31 and also when we get back jordan and i are making a big announcement so you're going to want to stay tuned for that big new project coming you're going to like it we'll talk about it we get back all right we're going to get your calls in just a second uh 1-800-684-3110 there's just a couple phone lines open uh most on the inflation reduction act the irs side we're going to get to that but we do have a big announcement to make because it is public now the release has gone out yeah the

easiest way you just go to that takes you to just a link page and you can go straight to the spotify page straight straight to the apple podcast page we'll also have a video component we'll have a lot of different things we'll be rolling out over the next few weeks but the press release went out we want to make sure we tell told all of you that this is coming and it's going to be completely different i think it's going to be not only really interesting but a lot of fun for people yeah i think the difference will be you know on this show we're it's we're broadcasting on all the networks and there's limits on that because you're on broadcast and also we have very limited time on this broadcast it's for the aclj and for the work that we're doing on this and we don't get into a lot of personal life the best personal as it gets is that you know we're related on here you don't really get past that sometimes we reference kids we don't really get into that and our you know wise families it's just not something we we spend a lot of time on here because we're breaking down huge important issues of the moment breaking news things like that this again it'll still be very timely because we're doing three days a week but in a more discussion format not the same kind of like breaks going back and forth so again if you're into podcasts and a lot of people listen to this like a podcast right but it's going to be more in that format more that and we're going to talk about things we will never talk about this broadcast because like you said we have some limitations we're on christian broadcasting on here yeah this we have to you know maintain even be careful about who else we're playing sound right this will not be that and salem is really good about allowing us to kind of talk about the things we really want to talk about if you look at the other list of shows they're on their network it's people like Dinesh D'Souza and Jenna Ellis and Charlie Kirk and there's a huge list Sam Gorka and Hugh Hewitt and Eric Metaxas and Dennis Prager so we are happy to join that you know lineup of a really a-list podcast and be a part of that whole community it's at but we're going to talk about it from now until we launch I'm sure we're going to keep talking about it but today the press release went out we wanted to share that with you that we're excited about starting something new people are asking will they be able to watch a rumble yes there will be a rumble and presence we will tell you exactly where to go yes that time is right as well yes there will be video and sometimes maybe clips maybe full broadcast we're still working all of that out but there will likely be a video there will be a video component but I encourage you right now what you can do right now is sign up for the audio feeds and subscribe on apple podcast and on spotify if you're willing to do that for us I would really appreciate it doesn't cost a thing totally free and sign up again to get the podcast launched September 12th so we're starting to build up the the listener base and again unlike this broadcast now we do have the video component but you're not it's not going to be like oh I missed it you know because when we're doing the shows we might have a live component of something like that because of the video but it's going to be something so it's not as again you can listen to it throughout the week yeah up to how your schedule works yeah exactly they'll be three days a week and they will be released on the day we record them so they're not like we're backlogging these for the most part it'll be we put out it we record we'll record after this show so after this show is live we'll probably go have lunch we'll come back we're gonna do another half hour and then shortly after that that show or hour or what's cool is we can kind of go as long as we want at least a half an hour probably 45 hour and we'll get to talk about whatever is happening that afternoon or we can talk about other topics but really it does being a part of that lineup it is going to be completely different because there is not that we don't have freedom but we are like you said on terrestrial radio we're on Christian radio and not that there's anything wrong with I love our Christian radio partners and I actually think we need to have more faith content but we can do that plus be unabashedly talk about politics and culture and what's going on with sports yeah whatever's happening right now and we'll do that do you support live golf yeah so that's that's a big debate you know so that's uh again secular I know and we got September 12th is when it's launching so under a month but our network you know would really appreciate if you went ahead and subscribed because that you know goes and tells other people about it starts spreading the word even before we're launched and go you can go ahead and give us five star rating if you want to you can we were there that also helps uh promote so if you if you subscribe now on either Spotify or or uh through iTunes yeah and at and if you subscribe you can already leave a comment so you can do five star can't wait to hear it yeah you know can't wait for this to come out and that really appreciate it it does help and again the more people subscribing the more that's promoted and the more this message gets out it doesn't cost anybody anything but it gets more people and people who wouldn't necessarily turn this show on and they're going to get the same messaging same you know the same core uh beliefs and values but maybe through topics that they you know pulls them in and also something different for us to talk yeah we'll get to actually like sit back in our chairs like we can have a conversation that's a little bit at a different pace so that's what i'm looking forward to i'm looking forward to have a little more interesting conversations and bring in not that these aren't interesting but this is we know we have an hour on here we have 57 minutes or whatever it is to get our content out and we have to make sure we get you all that message that we need to get out in that hour to the mass the masses this is a different vibe and a different uh you know a whole outlook on the way that we talk about the issues like you said we're still that same core so it's really great we have a ton of calls we're going to get to you guys coming up probably in the next half hour because we did run out of time for this segment and look this is something i won't have to say that i'm going to tell you this now if you are listening on terrestrial radio right now and you don't get the second half hour because some of the networks carry half an hour some don't carry the full hour some carry the first half some carry second half we are broadcasting live right now on facebook on youtube on rumble on all the platforms we can be on we are on that's been one of the things that we've always maintained and that's why we're happy to join now the sailor podcast network which is again available on all your favorite podcast players but to be in that network is also pretty interesting the emails i've already gotten being a part of that network it's going to open up a lot of doors to really connect us with a totally different world and i'm looking forward to it yeah so check out you can choose you can sign up on

you're commenting right now in the social media pages you will really like this kind of uh this kind of uh podcast home and we will tell you more as we get closer to the launch but the information it

and now your host jordan secular all right welcome back to secular Mike Pompeo is going to be joining us next segment of the broadcast and it's his view so share this if you're if you're watching the broadcast share it with your friends and family now because we haven't talked to secretary Pompeo's part of our team at the aclj as our senior council for global affairs we haven't talked on this publicly on the broadcast about the raid he's got a new piece up at on it and you think about the unique positions he's been in which we're going to talk about his Benghazi committee when he was in the house then cia director then secretary of state so i mean he understands running these departments the issues within the departments what you know so we're going to talk through all of that in the next segment live with secretary Pompeo we are going to take your calls at 1-800-684-3110 is it mern in florida on line five saying that right mern welcome to secular you're on the air thank you thank you for taking my call my question is all these employees are begging for help where do they think they're going to get 87 000 irs agents uh they're finding them already college campuses you know when the economies aren't great now there's a lot of like jobs available but the most of those are like in the service industry if you're looking for careers they will go to college campuses they're looking for people that you know they can carry the gun they can they can they're starting to take some of that off their website now um but i that's who they're going to is they're going to uh put together an entire new army of these woke young people to come after you with the taxes i mean that's who they want so they're going to the liberal college campus let's let's get it is so bad so yes they'll be able to find them let me tell you people want federal government jobs and it when you come right out of college if you're looking at like law enforcement anything like that and you have any kind of like accounting background they're going to recruit heavily because they've got 87 billion dollars to spend mern uh and so you can hire a lot of people like we said and they've talked about it's going to be 80 000 new people somehow this is being flagged on on facebook because some of those people some people at the irs will retire i mean this is their argument but that's not what the bill is about the bill is about so we can recruit these 87 000 new agents because we need to find new money not do things the same so the reason why it's getting flagged doesn't make sense because they're not it doesn't say it's not the replacement staff bill it's the we need to go out and find missing revenue which means knocking on your door going after farmers going after small businesses we know where this goes so for folks hang on the phone lines we will get you we got a final segment after secretary pompeo so hang on the lines we will get your calls if you've got questions or comments

segment of the broadcast 1-800-684-3110 to talk to us on the air i want to go right to former secretary of state mike pompeo our senior council for global affairs because we haven't had a chance to talk to him yet on the broadcast and it's got new piece up at as well the piece is titled attorney general garland's raid on mar-a-lago is a lot is about more than documents so secretary pompeo we've had heard lots of different people's opinion on this but i want to hear yours on what you think this is all about at the end of the day well jordan thanks uh for giving me the chance to walk everyone through this you know the the left keeps talking about no one's above the law that's a true statement but this has all the hallmarks of a political action and our history has been very different from that when i was on the bengazi committee we had a former secretary of state who clearly had classified information on her server we didn't we didn't ask the justice department to raid her home we we didn't send agents in to seize it we began a conversation about how to make sure we protected the information and delivered against the constitutional processes that we all know there's been none of that and enjoyed this all too comes across a backdrop and this is why this is bigger than about any one individual including even President trump we've watched peter strozek we watched him go after with the russia hoax we watched former director komi and former deputy director mccabe we we know they lied we've watched the fbi behave in ways that are deeply political and they do a disservice not only to the people whose actions are are on the other end the receiving end of them but they also do an enormous disservice to the fbi agents in the field they're trying to keep people safe to run keep drugs off our streets all those things this is when the political leadership of the fbi behaves in ways that are inconsistent with our constitutional foundation it puts so much at risk jordan that's what i was going to type it feels like to a lot of conservatives uh secretary pompeo that this is like it's been weaponized to a point where it's like a hit squad for the democrats and that's how they're utilizing it i would feel i'm sure that there's plenty of agents out there feel frustrated but we also have seen congressional reports uh from uh whistleblowers who have said they're being purged that people that have conservative views so it just it feels that way i mean to talk through the to the american people because the cia director working with the fbi and on the bengazi committee when you're in the house that's that's how it feels to folks out there is that this leadership uh cannot be trusted right now well i i saw so director komi was the director of the fbi when i became cia director so he was in office i watched what he did in the opening month with the uh the russia report that they did they knew the dossier was uh not something that they wanted to rest on but they used that as a linchpin to leapfrog and conduct all kinds of two years of horrors against the administration uh this this is your point's exactly right there are there are rank-and-file members of the fbi who i know are frustrated to see this leadership behaving in ways uh that are inconsistent with their value set of just the fact that just the law and uh it puts enormous risk to our country to have its federal law enforcement agency uh faking data that goes to uh the fiza team an important process that Pfizer process right we saw that we saw this when uh they began to use the irs in ways they're political this is the america garland the attorney general has given the american people no reason to believe that he is running a straight up organization he ought to go out and speak to the american people about why he did what he did and lay out his case for why it was so important so urgent that they had to go bust into the former President's home and raid these documents i was going to ask you about that because as being that former director of the cia you know this classified document is there some risk to america with the paper that's out there would that usually take two years to figure out it doesn't seem so all the all the things indicate right i i've actually read i don't know this but they actually received permission to uh conduct the search on a thursday or friday and didn't do the raid for another 72 hours okay explain that i i'm open to hearing a rational explanation for this but there has been none and against the backdrop of all that has been done all of the misstatements all the lies all the improper use of these law enforcement tools of intelligence collection tools by political leadership starting back with clapper and brennan and commie attorney general garland is not going to get the benefit of doubt on this he needs to explain to the american people what was so darn urgent what presented national security risk that they had to do something that's never been done before use the fbi against the former President of the united states and invade his place of residence yeah but they wanted to take their weekend still they still wanted their saturday and sunday uh which is very bizarre every every national security attorneys weighed in on this from doj or former doj's so you know if you got that search word someone like this kind of profile they don't even have an example to use because this is unprecedented you execute it immediately because if you believe this is a threat to our national security you don't wait the weekend you don't hold on to the weekend and you you go so again none of it and it's not like they've tried to put out as you said secretary pompeo they have not tried to put out an explanation they have not tried to say this is why we had to wait you know 72 hours that that's not the there's no legal requirement for that the league you get the search where you can execute it but that is not what they decided to do which again it just puts makes people think this is not on the up and up uh they've been lied to by former fbi directors and it's like what's going on now with the doj i do want to go to the inflation reduction act as well because we're getting honest reports now even from senator mansion that it has nothing to do with inflation and this kind of recalculating what it's all about but we're also seeing secretary pompeo is social media companies starting to flag people for saying there's going to be new irs agents coming to your door because they're saying well some will be replacements well i i think everyone understands that there are retirements at these federal agencies and people eventually do leave but ultimately here you've been through it with the targeting and we've been through it with the targeting of tea party groups how big of a risk you think it is that when when they take when they go increase in size 80 plus thousand new agents and they're recruiting them right from college campuses as we speak and they've given them the job of finding new money two things we know for sure the first is is that 87 000 new agents are what is authorized and there'll be some retired they'll replace that one too the chance that they're actually going to avoid small businesses and people making less than 400 000 still achieve the outcome that they said they were going to achieve is is as fraudulent as the title of the legislation saying it was actually going to reduce inflation second we've lost such confidence in the capacity of internal revenue service to do its job this is what the aclj just did such great work on right with lois lorner chasing her down and proving to the american people that she was behaving in ways that were deeply inconsistent with just making sure that everybody who paid taxes didn't matter if you're a liberal conservative no she used it to weaponize the irs against conservatives if you're going to double the size irs 87 000 new irs agents it seems like the american people know that this will end up hurting small businesses and ordinary families and may well end up as a political tool there's no need for it it was a a poor decision and i so regret that we didn't have a 54 senator to prevent this from happening that's all i would have taken but i said i think important the midterms we know seen the polling is that if you tell people inflation reduction act and that's where they take it they think that's wonderful because it sounds nice but if you actually tell them what's in it especially on the irs it's not going to be a problem especially on the irs provision it becomes very unpopular with likely voters not just republican voters voters on both sides of the aisle who don't trust these institutions just don't like the idea that that's what they're going to be paying for with their taxpayer dollars do want to get to some foreign policy uh just for a minute here because we saw more news on the u.s and taiwan starting formal talks on an economic and trade initiative chinese communist party they're already voiced their opposition to it the biden administration's been tough sometimes it's hot sometimes they're cold when it comes to taiwan what what is your kind of take on this the economic news we also saw some more military action by the chinese communist party i i think engaging in trade with taiwan is fantastic if the biden administration is serious about putting together a formal trade agreement with the freedom-loving people of taiwan and this will increase commerce between our two countries i think that is all to the good i i applaud them for that i hope they're serious i hope it's real hope they'll follow through on it it's not just a press release no no one can argue with the fact that the people of taiwan deserve to have the capacity to trade and engage in commerce with whoever they want that'll make americans wealthier it'll make the people of taiwan wealthier and the western world those of us who love freedom will be more secure as well secretary pompeo as always we appreciate you joining the broadcast former secretary of state former cia director former house member on the bengazi committee just again taking all that information that's what we love to do on this broadcast for you is get the info from from the best people possible who understand running a giant federal agency like the state department of cia to understand the nuances of the bureaucracy and the political appointments but obviously honestly very similar to the cia the fbi has very few political appointees but secretary papaya has been in that position so you're dealing mostly with the bureaucracy when when you're the director and uh i think that insight on it makes it almost impossible for the good people there to do their job which means they leave so we're already getting whistleblower reports on and so you're only left with the lowest learners and the peter strokes so again i think we have to be very vigilant because even there are ways and we're gonna take calls on this to prevent some of this from moving forward we talked to senator graham about that before i will come back we're gonna take more of your calls and questions at 1-800-684-3110 if you're on the line roger phil bill will start with you but there if you want to be on the broadcast i'd say you got to call now one segment coming up uh remaining 1-800-684-3110 we'll be right back all right welcome back to secular logan uh let's start with calls right away i think we've gotten into everything we want to cover the the just so you know the trial on the affidavit that's about to start it's after our broadcast so watch for that news later that day again nine out of ten times or maybe even 99 out of a hundred times you're not going to get the affidavit released but this is a different situation so uh you know there'll be redactions remember though whatever if anything is released it's going to be painting donald trump in the worst light possible that's there because in their affidavit they can write their mean nasty stuff that's their case and they have to say that this person has been a criminal yeah don't think you're going to get out of that document some sort of redemption story you might find some goofiness yeah it may be silly you might get some hints at their where their their starting point like we've all said like we just talked with secretary pompeo their timeline doesn't work i've i've heard bread bear say it you just heard a former secretary of state say it and ca director say it that you don't wait even two days so it took two years to figure out that there was something so urgent that you needed a search warrant raid uh so you had to put in the affidavit go through that process and then you got it on friday afternoon but ah we don't want to work weekends no who does uh and so we'll come back and we'll do it monday which is what they did uh and so again if there's nuclear codes you know surfacing around in the field you think you'd work a saturday you know you're supposed to yeah should we take some phone calls yeah we got a lot on on the line we want to call in by the way this will be your last chance 1-800-684-3110 some of you guys been holding on for like 40 minutes we appreciate it's been a packed show roger's calling in utah online one robert roger welcome hi uh thanks for taking my call uh what i wanted to know was uh when the republicans get control of the house is this something that the republicans could choose not to fund to limit the irs and the other things they have in there i don't think we have the sound from uh senator graham he was on the broadcast and he talked about if they take back congress they can they can put through legislation to prevent funding so right you congress has to appropriate the funds and he walked through that process on our broadcast but that means not just taking back the house that means taking back the senate and basically push it going back and forth with President biden he might veto it but you push back again you fight on the appropriation side so the battle against this is why you want to continue to expose it one it only helps us in the midterm elections to tell people the truth about what's in this okay and so when they find out about the irs increase they find out about this really green new deal and it's not about reducing inflation and you can go to joe mansion an author of the bill himself and and he'll say it like we played earlier in our broadcast this is not going to impact inflation why would it that's why you said why would it um maybe because that's what you called it that's why people would think that but so that's part one is you want to get people educated on what's really in there not the title and then later on through an appropriations process you can try to stop the funding but that's going to take not just taking the house the senate too and then a continual fight for two years against the biden white house all right let's keep going try to get through more calls let's go to phil in new york on line two phil yeah hi thank you very much for taking my call if someone's genuine purpose is to see that people pay their fair share of tax the tools they need are a computer and a knowledge of accounting they don't need a gun they don't need the threat of lethal force those things are associated with gestapo agents not irs agents there's something ominous about this thank you yeah i think it is ominous i think that's why they're trying to ban it from social media now they don't want you they know in the polls it shows that likely voters that is not republican likely voters that's all likely voters when they hear about the irs expansion are more likely to say that they will vote against the person who voted for it that's a democrat uh and some of the closest races in the country and the house races in the country so they don't want you even talking about it but like you said they have the fbi to utilize what they need a law enforcement uh uh you know capability with you know guns out um and they didn't write it in the way of like it's to protect yourself so you're just keeping it on you it was it was are you comfortable killing someone using deadly force i mean that's what they said that's different than maybe having a weapon to protect because no one you know against the irs they're not liked you know it's kind of so they start knocking but if they need that assistance they can bring in the corrupt fbi so don't worry irs agents you can bring in your corrupt fbi agents and uh i don't know why mike pence said don't talk about this i i think again another political miscalculation by him because he saw komi he's trying i think he's trying to make the distinction between him and every all these other republicans except for all the other republicans have lived it so uh i don't know why he's saying don't criticize the fbi this america these agents all work for us we pay their bills we pay their salaries and because of that we should be able to hold them accountable for bad actions questionable actions unexplainable like getting the warrant on a friday on a national security crisis and saying you know what you know i gotta go fishing tomorrow i got a kid's soccer game we'll we'll handle it monday it's not that big of a deal but it was a big enough deal to put in an affidavit to for the first time ever raid a former President's home yeah it seems like the constant uh thing you'll find with President trump is it's always the first time ever or the second time ever the first time in 200 years i feel like we heard that sentence over and over and over again let's go to bill in wyoming line three wyoming obviously in the news this week bill you're on the air all right thanks for taking my call uh i'm gonna have to disagree with what mansion said and it's because of supporting and listening to you guys because you say you gotta listen to what these guys say and and actually he says it doesn't help the inflation i say it does help make the inflation exactly and that's why i among other people are calling this the inflation production act as opposed to inflation reduction act you know aclj action we use that term we that's what we call it and aclj action is our c4 organization is more politically involved uh it runs ad advertising campaigns work with lobbyists at the state level federal level uh and so that's what we called it was the inflation production act and james rockets from our team there who leads up the aclj action force in washington dc called it just that and listen mansion's not arguing with you now now that it's passed he's like you know it's not gonna do anything with inflation it's it's literally written like when you say like inflation reduction act of 2022 it's like it's gonna impact in 2022 and they all know it's not because it's probably going to cause more inflation like like you said because there's when the government spends more and also increases its size with new staff things cost more things cost more they spend more it costs more final call of the day try we'll try to get to quick john you're on the air hey guys thanks for taking my call and thank you for what you do um is there a difference between a judge and a mass magistrate uh yeah yeah so i mean now listen in your state may have different terms for all these things so we're talking federal so federal magistrate is limited uh limited duties they can perform limited hearings they can hear they're also not appointed by the President united states so remember the President nominates the article three judge positions in the senate confirms magistrates are are appointed at the county level or uh or district level and so they assist in the legal process the uh appointed uh nominated uh judges and even justices uh it's unique also to the district court level the trial court level but more and more i will say this while they have limited powers increasingly like you might even notice like at your doctor's office where like a physician's assistant is doing more than a doctor you're starting to see more and more because of the overload of cases uh especially the covid overload cases they're doing more and more work but they are not appointed by the President of the united states that's where i want you to go just go there and subscribe right now to our brand new podcast there's a logo if you're watching on social media
