  • JAY SEKULOW: LET ME TELL YOU
  • 00:00:33.240 --> 00:00:34.240
  • WHAT'S GOING ON HERE. THE GREEN NEW DEAL WAS
  • 00:00:34.250 --> 00:00:36.020
  • INTRODUCED, WHICH IS SOCIALISM, IN AN UNPRECEDENTED WAY. AND, OF
  • 00:00:36.030 --> 00:00:40.190
  • COURSE, IT'S BEING PROMOTED BY A MEMBER OF CONGRESS, WHO RAN AS A
  • 00:00:40.200 --> 00:00:46.060
  • DEMOCRATIC SOCIALIST PARTY MEMBER. AND I'M HOLDING, PUTTING
  • 00:00:46.070 --> 00:00:50.270
  • IT UP RIGHT NOW, I'M HOLDING IT, FOR OUR RADIO AUDIENCE YOU CAN
  • 00:00:50.280 --> 00:00:53.080
  • HEAR IT. I'M GONNA LET EVERYBODY ON T.V. SEE IT. HAPPY BIRTHDAY,
  • 00:00:53.090 --> 00:00:56.280
  • KARL MARX! IN SOLIDARITY. DSA. THAT'S DEMOCRATIC SOCIALISTS OF
  • 00:00:56.290 --> 00:00:59.280
  • AMERICA. BERNIE SANDERS WAS THE SECOND RANKING OR SECOND HIGHEST
  • 00:00:59.290 --> 00:01:03.160
  • VOTE GETTER IN THE DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION. HE IS A SOCIALIST.
  • 00:01:03.170 --> 00:01:08.210
  • HE DOESN'T HIDE IT. HERE'S WHAT HE SAID: -ARE YOU A SOCIALIST?
  • 00:01:08.220 --> 00:01:11.210
  • -YES. -WHY ARE YOU RUNNING AS AN INDEPENDENT? -WELL, THE SAME
  • 00:01:11.220 --> 00:01:14.270
  • REASON THAT MRS. CUNAN AND MR. SMITH ARE PARTS OF THE
  • 00:01:14.280 --> 00:01:16.210
  • CAPITALIST ECONOMIC SYSTEM AND THEY'RE NOT RUNNING AS
  • 00:01:16.220 --> 00:01:19.180
  • CAPITALISTS. THEY'RE RUNNING AS DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS.
  • 00:01:19.190 --> 00:01:21.210
  • SOCIALISM TO ME, MEANS DEMOCRACY WITH A SMALL D. I AM NOT
  • 00:01:21.220 --> 00:01:25.140
  • AFFILIATED WITH A POLITICAL PARTY. I AM AN INDEPENDENT WHO
  • 00:01:25.150 --> 00:01:28.040
  • HAPPENS TO BE A SOCIALIST. I AM OUTRAGED ABOUT THE SYSTEM THAT
  • 00:01:28.050 --> 00:01:31.060
  • WERE LIVING IN. -OKAY, SO YOU KNOW, LOOK, THIS IS NOT STUFF
  • 00:01:31.070 --> 00:01:33.290
  • THAT WE'RE HIDING BUT HERE'S THE PROBLEM, THIS IS WHAT HAS THE
  • 00:01:34.000 --> 00:01:36.210
  • FOOTHOLD OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY. THIS IS WHERE THEIR
  • 00:01:36.220 --> 00:01:39.150
  • ENERGY IS. THIS IS WHERE THEIR MOMENTUM IS. AND I'M NOT TALKING
  • 00:01:39.160 --> 00:01:42.120
  • ABOUT, YOU KNOW, ELECTIONS. I'LL TELL YOU WHAT I'M TALKING
  • 00:01:42.130 --> 00:01:44.200
  • ABOUT-THE VERY CORE OF A CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC,
  • 00:01:44.210 --> 00:01:46.240
  • WHICH IS WHAT THE UNITED
  • 00:01:46.250 --> 00:01:47.240
  • STATES IS. WE ARE A CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC.
  • 00:01:47.250 --> 00:01:50.170
  • AND BY THE WAY, THAT'S EVEN DIFFERENT THAN A STRAIGHT
  • 00:01:50.180 --> 00:01:53.140
  • DEMOCRACY. OKAY? WE ARE A CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC. IT'S
  • 00:01:53.150 --> 00:01:56.270
  • NOT MAJORITY RULE HERE. OKAY? YOU HAVE REPRESENTATIVE
  • 00:01:56.280 --> 00:02:00.050
  • GOVERNMENT, WHICH HAS SERVED US VERY WELL SINCE OUR FOUNDING.
  • 00:02:00.060 --> 00:02:05.050
  • BUT NOW YOU'VE GOT, YOU KNOW, REPRESENTATIVE CORTEZ AND
  • 00:02:05.060 --> 00:02:08.170
  • SENATOR SANDERS PROUDLY BOASTING THEIR SOCIALISM. AND YOU'VE GOT
  • 00:02:08.180 --> 00:02:12.040
  • MEMBERS THAT ARE RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES
  • 00:02:12.050 --> 00:02:14.280
  • ADOPTING SOCIALISM, AND THEY PUT FORWARD THE GREEN NEW DEAL,
  • 00:02:14.290 --> 00:02:20.050
  • WHICH IS ABSURD. IT'S A FAIR WAY TO SAY IT. JORDAN SEKULOW: YEAH,
  • 00:02:20.060 --> 00:02:23.080
  • IT IS ABSURD. BUT HERE'S THE BONUS FOR CONSERVATIVES OUT
  • 00:02:23.090 --> 00:02:27.180
  • THERE: ONE, I DON'T AGREE WITH SAIKAT CHAKRABARTI, WHO IS THE
  • 00:02:27.190 --> 00:02:35.060
  • CHIEF OF STAFF FOR ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ, WHO SAYS THAT WE
  • 00:02:35.070 --> 00:02:41.110
  • HAVE TO GET RID OF THE, QUOTE, RADICAL CONSERVATIVES AMONG THE
  • 00:02:41.120 --> 00:02:44.260
  • DEMOCRATS HOLDING THE PARTY, QUOTE, HOSTAGE. RADICAL
  • 00:02:44.270 --> 00:02:47.170
  • CONSERVATIVES AMONG THE DEMOCRATS. -WHO IS THAT PERSON?
  • 00:02:47.180 --> 00:02:50.030
  • -YEAH, I DON'T KNOW. I MEAN, THE OLD-SCHOOL DEMOCRATS ARE THE
  • 00:02:50.040 --> 00:02:53.060
  • ONES SAYING ABORTION, INFANTICIDE, IS FINE. SO THAT'S
  • 00:02:53.070 --> 00:02:57.110
  • NOT FAR LEFT ENOUGH FOR THEM AS WELL. BUT IT GOES ON, I MEAN,
  • 00:02:57.120 --> 00:03:02.120
  • WHAT ARE THEY VOTING ON? AND THIS IS IN THE HOUSE AND THE
  • 00:03:02.130 --> 00:03:05.000
  • SENATE, AND YOU KNOW, IF I MITCH MCCONNELL, I SAY LET THEM VOTE.
  • 00:03:05.010 --> 00:03:08.240
  • -YES, LET THEM VOTE ON IT. -VOTE ON THIS, PLEASE. PUT THEM
  • 00:03:08.250 --> 00:03:11.190
  • ON THE RECORD BECAUSE THEY WILL BE VOTING, AND THIS IS ALL TRUE,
  • 00:03:11.200 --> 00:03:16.190
  • IN FAVOR OF ABOLISHING AIR TRAVEL, OUTLAWING STEAKS,
  • 00:03:16.200 --> 00:03:20.200
  • FORCING ALL AMERICAN HOMEOWNERS AT THEIR OWN EXPENSE TO RETROFIT
  • 00:03:20.210 --> 00:03:23.270
  • THEIR HOUSES, PUTTING EVERY MINER, OIL RIGGER, LIVESTOCK
  • 00:03:23.280 --> 00:03:28.090
  • RANCHER, AND GAS STATION ATTENDANT OUT OF A JOB, SPENDING
  • 00:03:28.100 --> 00:03:31.120
  • TRILLIONS AND TRILLIONS MORE TAX MONEY. AND ALSO, VERY POPULAR,
  • 00:03:31.130 --> 00:03:35.150
  • FULLY GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTH CARE, WHICH SOMEHOW, AS THE WALL
  • 00:03:35.160 --> 00:03:38.220
  • STREET JOURNAL NOTES, IS A PREREQUISITE FOR A CLEAN
  • 00:03:38.230 --> 00:03:41.160
  • ECONOMY. -YEAH. SO THIS IS THE PLAN. SO ANDY, YOU REVIEW THAT
  • 00:03:41.170 --> 00:03:46.080
  • PLAN AND YOU LOOK AT ENGLAND AFTER WORLD WAR II AND THIS IS
  • 00:03:46.090 --> 00:03:49.090
  • WHAT THEY DID AND IT DIDN'T WORK OUT VERY WELL. ANDREW EKONOMOU:
  • 00:03:49.100 --> 00:03:51.050
  • NO! ENGLAND WAS A SHAMBLES AFTER WORLD WAR II; NOT ONLY AS A
  • 00:03:51.060 --> 00:03:53.280
  • RESULT OF THE WAR, BUT AS A RESULT OF OF MANY THINGS THAT.
  • 00:03:53.290 --> 00:03:58.140
  • THE DIFFERENCE IN CLASSES HAD BASICALLY BEEN ABOLISHED AND
  • 00:03:58.150 --> 00:04:01.190
  • CLEMENT ATTLEE SUCCEEDS WINSTON CHURCHILL AS PRIME MINISTER AND
  • 00:04:01.200 --> 00:04:06.080
  • WE BEGIN THIS IDEA OF THE WELFARE STATE. AND THE WELFARE
  • 00:04:06.090 --> 00:04:10.050
  • STATE FALLS FLAT ON ITS FACE AND ENGLAND IS SUFFERING FOR YEARS
  • 00:04:10.060 --> 00:04:14.100
  • AND YEARS UNTIL, FINALLY, MARGARET THATCHER COMES IN AND
  • 00:04:14.110 --> 00:04:17.090
  • SAYS WITH A CONSERVATIVE PARTY, LET'S CREATE WEALTH. LET EACH
  • 00:04:17.100 --> 00:04:20.290
  • PERSON BE THE ARBITER OF THEIR OWN CONSCIENCE. LET'S NOT BE
  • 00:04:21.000 --> 00:04:25.150
  • IMMORAL ABOUT-THE IDEA OF CREATING WEALTH IS IMMORAL. WHAT
  • 00:04:25.160 --> 00:04:28.240
  • A RIDICULOUS THING TO SAY. -WE'VE GOT A LOT MORE ON THIS.
  • 00:04:28.250 --> 00:04:31.160
  • WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE FUNDAMENTAL OF WHO WE ARE AS A
  • 00:04:31.170 --> 00:04:35.220
  • PEOPLE. WHAT IS A CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC? WE'RE DEALING WITH
  • 00:04:35.230 --> 00:04:40.160
  • ISSUES OF SOCIALISM. WE'RE DEALING WITH ISSUES OF CHANGING
  • 00:04:40.170 --> 00:04:44.230
  • THE VERY FABRIC OF OUR COUNTRY. THAT IS NOT WHAT WE SHOULD
  • 00:04:44.240 --> 00:04:47.260
  • ALLOW. IT'S SERVED US WELL, THIS CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED
  • 00:04:47.270 --> 00:04:50.070
  • STATES. OUR JOB IS TO DEFEND IT. WE'LL BE BACK WITH MORE IN JUST
  • 00:04:50.080 --> 00:04:52.170
  • A MOMENT.
  • 00:04:52.180 --> 00:04:53.050
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:04:53.060 --> 00:04:59.110
  • JAY SEKULOW: WE'VE BEEN TALKING
  • 00:04:59.120 --> 00:05:00.190
  • ABOUT THE GREEN DREAM. I'M LOOKING AT THE LIST OF MEMBERS
  • 00:05:00.200 --> 00:05:02.150
  • OF CONGRESS THAT ARE SIGNED ON TO THIS. I MEAN, ADAM SCHIFF,
  • 00:05:02.160 --> 00:05:06.290
  • TED LIEU, I MEAN, MEMBERS OF THE SENATE, SENATOR HARRIS, SENATOR
  • 00:05:07.000 --> 00:05:12.060
  • BLUMENTHAL, SENATOR HIRONO, SENATOR WARREN, SENATOR BOOKER,
  • 00:05:12.070 --> 00:05:16.190
  • SENATOR GILLIBRAND. SO THERE YOU GO! SENATOR SANDERS AND OTHERS.
  • 00:05:16.200 --> 00:05:21.080
  • NOT ALL OF THEM ARE RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT AND THEY'RE ADOPTING
  • 00:05:21.090 --> 00:05:23.280
  • THIS NONSENSE. GO AHEAD, THANN. THANN BENNETT: THAT'S THE
  • 00:05:23.290 --> 00:05:26.190
  • RELEVANT POINT THERE, JAY. THIS IS MORE THAN A FOOT IN THE DOOR
  • 00:05:26.200 --> 00:05:29.210
  • IN THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY. THIS HAS BECOME A LITMUS TEST TO BE
  • 00:05:29.220 --> 00:05:32.030
  • THE LEADER OF THE DEMOCRAT PARTY. IF YOU WANT TO RUN FOR
  • 00:05:32.040 --> 00:05:34.100
  • PRESIDENT THE UNITED STATES IN THAT PARTY, YOU HAVE TO SUPPORT
  • 00:05:34.110 --> 00:05:37.160
  • THE GREEN NEW DEAL. AND, JAY, I THINK YOU SAID EARLIER THEY'RE
  • 00:05:37.170 --> 00:05:39.000
  • TRYING TO MATCH THE ENERGY THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP WAS ABLE TO
  • 00:05:39.010 --> 00:05:42.120
  • INSPIRE FROM HIS BASE BY RUNNING ON NATIONAL SECURITY. I THINK
  • 00:05:42.130 --> 00:05:45.130
  • THAT'S CORRECT. THE DIFFERENCE IS, THOSE POLICIES, YOU KNOW, A
  • 00:05:45.140 --> 00:05:48.090
  • MERE FIVE BILLION DOLLARS TO PUT A BARRIER ON THE BORDER, THOSE
  • 00:05:48.100 --> 00:05:51.180
  • ARE GOOD POLICIES TO PUT INTO STATUTE. THIS, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:05:51.190 --> 00:05:54.280
  • SOMETHING 1.400 TIMES MORE EXPENSIVE. AND, BY THE WAY, I
  • 00:05:54.290 --> 00:05:57.280
  • THINK THAT SEVEN TRILLION DOLLAR PRICE TAG IS PROBABLY TOO LOW.
  • 00:05:57.290 --> 00:06:00.130
  • THOSE WOULD DESTROY AMERICA. SO, JAY, IN EXCHANGE FOR CREATING
  • 00:06:00.140 --> 00:06:03.200
  • SOME ENERGY IN THEIR BASE AND MAKING THIS THE LITMUS TEST,
  • 00:06:03.210 --> 00:06:06.070
  • THEY'RE RUNNING ON POLICIES THAT SIMPLY CAN'T BE ENACTED. IT'S A
  • 00:06:06.080 --> 00:06:09.280
  • BIG PROBLEM FOR THEM. -IT IS. 1-800-684-3110. LET'S TAKE
  • 00:06:09.290 --> 00:06:12.250
  • ANOTHER CALL. JORDAN SEKULOW: WELL, THEY DO THINK THE WORLD IS
  • 00:06:12.260 --> 00:06:14.210
  • ENDING IN 12 YEARS. TAKE A LISTEN: -I THINK THAT THE PART
  • 00:06:14.220 --> 00:06:17.050
  • OF IT THAT IS GENERATIONAL IS THAT MILLENIALS AND PEOPLE THAT,
  • 00:06:17.060 --> 00:06:23.120
  • YOU KNOW, GEN Z, AND ALL THESE FOLKS THAT COME AFTER US ARE
  • 00:06:23.130 --> 00:06:25.140
  • LOOKING UP AND WE'RE, LIKE, THE WORLD IS GONNA END IN 12 YEARS
  • 00:06:25.150 --> 00:06:29.280
  • IF WE DON'T ADDRESS CLIMATE CHANGE. AND YOUR BIGGEST ISSUE
  • 00:06:29.290 --> 00:06:32.250
  • IS [APPLAUSE] YOUR BIGGEST ISSUE IS HOW ARE WE GONNA PAY FOR IT?
  • 00:06:32.260 --> 00:06:41.030
  • AND, LIKE, THIS IS THE WAR. THIS IS, -I CAN'T EVEN. -SHE ENDS
  • 00:06:41.040 --> 00:06:44.140
  • UP SAYING THIS IS OUR WORLD WAR II. -PLAY IT LATER. I CAN'T
  • 00:06:44.150 --> 00:06:49.070
  • EVEN LISTEN TO THIS. 12 YEARS THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END.
  • 00:06:49.080 --> 00:06:53.030
  • SO I ASK OUR LAW AND ECONOMICS PROFESSOR, PROFESSOR HUTCHISON,
  • 00:06:53.040 --> 00:06:55.250
  • IF THAT'S THE CASE, WHY WOULD WE SPEND THIS MONEY? THIS DOESN'T
  • 00:06:55.260 --> 00:06:59.090
  • END IT. HARRY HUTCHISON: ABSOLUTELY NOT! BUT I THINK IT'S
  • 00:06:59.100 --> 00:07:02.250
  • IMPORTANT TO KEEP IN MIND THAT HER FOCUS ON SOCIALISM, AND IN
  • 00:07:02.260 --> 00:07:09.030
  • ESSENCE, WAR SOCIALISM TIES US BACK TO WOODROW WILSON IN THE
  • 00:07:09.040 --> 00:07:14.280
  • EARLY PART OF THE 20TH CENTURY. THEN FDR CAME ALONG AND HE
  • 00:07:14.290 --> 00:07:21.200
  • LEARNED THAT WAR SOCIALISM HAS LEGS. SO SIMPLY PUT, FDR,
  • 00:07:21.210 --> 00:07:29.240
  • WOODROW WILSON, AND MANY CONTEMPORARY DEMOCRATS ARE
  • 00:07:29.250 --> 00:07:34.140
  • AUTHORITARIANS WHO WANT THE EXPERTS IN WASHINGTON D.C. TO
  • 00:07:34.150 --> 00:07:39.240
  • RULE OUR LIVES OR OTHERWISE WE FACE CRIMINAL PENALTIES. SO JUST
  • 00:07:39.250 --> 00:07:46.230
  • ASK JACOB MAGID. WHO IS JACOB MAGID? A FATHER OF FOUR WHO
  • 00:07:46.240 --> 00:07:52.100
  • OWNED A TAILOR SHOP IN THE 1930'S. HE CHARGED ONLY 35 CENTS
  • 00:07:52.110 --> 00:07:59.260
  • TO PRESS A SUIT. THE MEMBERS OF THE BRAIN TRUST IN THE FDR
  • 00:07:59.270 --> 00:08:04.240
  • ADMINISTRATION DECIDED THAT HE OUGHT TO CHARGE 40 CENTS FOR A
  • 00:08:04.250 --> 00:08:09.280
  • SUIT. GUESS WHAT? HE LOST AND HE WAS SENTENCED TO PRISON FOR 30
  • 00:08:09.290 --> 00:08:15.290
  • DAYS FOR CHARGING FIVE CENTS MORE FOR PRESSING A SUIT. THIS
  • 00:08:16.000 --> 00:08:20.270
  • IS AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT MS. CORTEZ SUPPORTS. SHE SUPPORTS MANDATORY
  • 00:08:20.280 --> 00:08:30.010
  • CONTROL BY EXPERTS. -JERRY CALLING IN FROM RHODE ISLAND.
  • 00:08:30.020 --> 00:08:32.220
  • JERRY, THANKS FOR HOLDING ON. YOU'RE ON THE AIR NOW. -HI,
  • 00:08:32.230 --> 00:08:35.180
  • JERRY. -HOW ARE YOU DOING, TEAM? -GOOD. -PROFESSOR
  • 00:08:35.190 --> 00:08:38.080
  • HUTCHISON, GREAT, GREAT EXAMPLES OF HISTORY THAT MOST PEOPLE ARE
  • 00:08:38.090 --> 00:08:41.080
  • NOT PAYING ATTENTION TO. THE HISTORY LESSON AFTER ENGLAND, I
  • 00:08:41.090 --> 00:08:44.080
  • DIDN'T KNOW THAT ONE. THANK YOU FOR THAT. AND I WAS THINKING OF
  • 00:08:44.090 --> 00:08:46.140
  • THE EARLY 30'S AND 20'S. WHAT, YOU'RE GOING TO PUT A PLAN
  • 00:08:46.150 --> 00:08:50.080
  • TOGETHER FOR THE ACLJ, -YEP. -IS THE TEAM GOING TO PUT
  • 00:08:50.090 --> 00:08:53.240
  • TOGETHER WHAT WE LISTENERS, WHAT WE CAN DO? -YEP. -WHETHER IT
  • 00:08:53.250 --> 00:08:57.060
  • BE CALLING, WRITING CERTIFIED, RETURN RECEIPT REQUESTED, WHAT
  • 00:08:57.070 --> 00:08:59.290
  • CAN WE DO ASIDE FROM FINANCIAL SPONSORSHIP? -SO HERE'S WHAT
  • 00:09:00.020 --> 00:09:03.020
  • WE'RE GONNA HAVE TO DO. THIS IS NOT A BATTLE YOU WIN IN A
  • 00:09:03.030 --> 00:09:06.080
  • COURTROOM. THIS IS A BATTLE YOU WIN IN THE COURTS OF PUBLIC
  • 00:09:06.090 --> 00:09:10.030
  • OPINION, IN THE HALLS OF CONGRESS. SO WHAT WE HAVE TO DO
  • 00:09:10.040 --> 00:09:13.170
  • IS HAVE A COUNTER NARRATIVE TO THIS. AND WE ARE GONNA HAVE A
  • 00:09:13.180 --> 00:09:16.290
  • PLAN THAT WE'RE GONNA LAY OUT. THAT IS HOW YOU RESPOND TO THIS.
  • 00:09:17.000 --> 00:09:20.090
  • BUT THE TOP OF THE PLAN IS GOING TO BE THAT WE ARE A
  • 00:09:20.100 --> 00:09:22.280
  • CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC. SO WHAT THEY'RE PROPOSING, AND THIS
  • 00:09:22.290 --> 00:09:26.190
  • ADOPTION OF SOCIALISM AS A MODEL, THERE'S ONLY THREE
  • 00:09:26.200 --> 00:09:29.240
  • PROBLEMS WITH IT. NUMBER ONE, WE'RE A CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC.
  • 00:09:29.250 --> 00:09:32.140
  • NUMBER TWO, WE'RE A CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC. NUMBER
  • 00:09:32.150 --> 00:09:33.290
  • THREE, WE'RE A CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC. SO WE'RE NOT A
  • 00:09:34.000 --> 00:09:36.160
  • SOCIALIST COUNTRY. NOW, WE'RE GONNA HAVE TO BEAT THEM IN THE
  • 00:09:36.170 --> 00:09:39.160
  • VOTE, WHICH MEANS, THANN, WE'VE GOT TO WIN IT IN CONGRESS. BUT
  • 00:09:39.170 --> 00:09:44.030
  • YOU'RE GONNA HAVE PEOPLE RUNNING FOR THIS AND NATIONAL PARTY
  • 00:09:44.040 --> 00:09:47.130
  • PLATFORMS, AND BELIEVE ME, THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA WILL ADOPT THIS
  • 00:09:47.140 --> 00:09:51.110
  • AS A GREAT IDEA. THEY ALREADY ARE. BUT WE'RE GONNA HAVE TO WIN
  • 00:09:51.120 --> 00:09:54.270
  • THIS IN THE HEARTS AND MINDS OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. IT'S GOING
  • 00:09:54.280 --> 00:09:57.250
  • TO BE AN EDUCATIONAL EFFORT. IT'S GOING TO BE A POLICY
  • 00:09:57.260 --> 00:10:01.130
  • EFFORT. IT'S GOING TO BE UTILIZING OUR VAST MEDIA
  • 00:10:01.140 --> 00:10:04.140
  • RESOURCES AND MOBILIZING AMERICANS AROUND THE COUNTRY TO
  • 00:10:04.150 --> 00:10:07.270
  • STAND UP FOR OUR CONSTITUTION. THIS IS A DIRECT CHALLENGE TO
  • 00:10:07.280 --> 00:10:11.090
  • THE CONSTITUTION THE UNITED STATES AND THE CONSTITUTIONAL
  • 00:10:11.100 --> 00:10:12.280
  • REPUBLIC. AND THANN, WE'RE GONNA HAVE TO MEET IT HEAD-ON. THERE'S
  • 00:10:12.290 --> 00:10:15.000
  • NOT AN EASY WAY TO SUGARCOAT IT; THAT'S THE WAY WE'RE GONNA HAVE
  • 00:10:15.010 --> 00:10:17.060
  • TO DO IT. THANN BENNETT: NO DOUBT. AND ULTIMATELY, JAY, IT'S
  • 00:10:17.070 --> 00:10:20.100
  • GONNA HAVE TO BE DEFEATED AT THE BALLOT BOX. -YES! -AND I WOULD
  • 00:10:20.110 --> 00:10:22.040
  • JUST GIVE YOU TWO DIRECTIONS. I MEAN, FIRST OF ALL, OUR PIECE
  • 00:10:22.050 --> 00:10:24.070
  • WILL PUT OUT THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE VOLUNTARILY PUT THEIR NAMES ON
  • 00:10:24.080 --> 00:10:26.230
  • THIS. THIS IS NOT SOMETHING THAT WE ARE PUTTING FORWARD. WE'RE
  • 00:10:26.240 --> 00:10:29.040
  • NOT PUTTING WORDS IN PEOPLE'S MOUTHS. THERE ARE 64 MEMBERS OF
  • 00:10:29.050 --> 00:10:31.230
  • THE UNITED STATES HOUSE, 64 MEMBERS OF THE UNITED STATES
  • 00:10:31.240 --> 00:10:34.030
  • SENATE, THAT HAVE PUT THEIR NAME ON IT. JAY, PEOPLE NEED TO GET
  • 00:10:34.040 --> 00:10:37.130
  • EDUCATED ON WHO THESE FOLKS ARE AND MAKE SURE THAT THESE
  • 00:10:37.140 --> 00:10:39.260
  • POLICIES ARE NOT WHAT YOU'RE ELECTING AT THE BALLOT BOX. AND
  • 00:10:39.270 --> 00:10:42.140
  • JAY, I WOULD ADD ANOTHER COMPONENT TO THIS. YOU ALSO HAVE
  • 00:10:42.150 --> 00:10:44.210
  • TO GO AND ELECT PEOPLE WHO WILL FIGHT AGAINST THIS. DON'T SEND
  • 00:10:44.220 --> 00:10:47.240
  • SOMEONE TO WASHINGTON, THAT WHEN THIS POLICY IS PUT FORWARD, THEY
  • 00:10:47.250 --> 00:10:50.260
  • JUST STAND DOWN AND LET SOMEONE ELSE TAKE THE CHARGE. YOU'VE GOT
  • 00:10:50.270 --> 00:10:53.050
  • TO PUT PEOPLE IN WASHINGTON THAT WILL TAKE THIS ON HEAD-ON.
  • 00:10:53.060 --> 00:10:56.170
  • -MARTHA'S CALLING FROM KANSAS ON LINE THREE. MARTHA, WELCOME
  • 00:10:56.180 --> 00:10:59.150
  • TO JAY SEKULOW LIVE. YOU'RE ON THE AIR. -HI, MARTHA. -OKAY,
  • 00:10:59.160 --> 00:11:03.090
  • SO UNDER THIS GREEN DEAL, DOES THIS MEAN THAT WE NEED TO GET
  • 00:11:03.100 --> 00:11:06.160
  • RID OF OUR AIR FORCE? BECAUSE I'M SURE RUSSIA AND CHINA ARE
  • 00:11:06.170 --> 00:11:08.280
  • GONNA DO THAT. RIGHT? [CHUCKLES] -WELL, ONE OF OUR TEAM SAID
  • 00:11:08.290 --> 00:11:10.250
  • THIS MORNING, I GUESS THAT'S THE END, IT'S CALLED AIR FORCE NONE
  • 00:11:10.260 --> 00:11:12.290
  • INSTEAD OF AIR FORCE ONE. BECAUSE I GUESS YOU'RE NOT GONNA
  • 00:11:13.000 --> 00:11:15.260
  • HAVE THE PRESIDENT FLYING ON IT. WELL, I MEAN, THIS WOULD BE
  • 00:11:15.270 --> 00:11:18.100
  • DEVASTATING TO THE MILITARY, WES? WESLEY SMITH: OH,
  • 00:11:18.110 --> 00:11:20.050
  • ABSOLUTELY! -YOU COULDN'T EVEN OPERATE. -NO. IF YOU SPEND
  • 00:11:20.060 --> 00:11:22.160
  • SEVENTY PERCENT, WHICH SOME ESTIMATES SAY THAT'S WHAT IT
  • 00:11:22.170 --> 00:11:26.020
  • WOULD COST, OF YOUR GROSS DOMESTIC PRODUCT, YOU WILL NOT
  • 00:11:26.030 --> 00:11:29.070
  • HAVE ANY MONEY FOR NATIONAL DEFENSE. ANDY MENTIONED ENGLAND,
  • 00:11:29.080 --> 00:11:32.230
  • THE DISASTER OF SOCIALISM FOR THEM. OTHER COUNTRIES IN EUROPE
  • 00:11:32.240 --> 00:11:35.240
  • HAVE TRIED IT AS WELL. AND THEY'RE MOVING AWAY FROM IT
  • 00:11:35.250 --> 00:11:38.100
  • PARTLY BECAUSE IT'S NOT SUSTAINABLE FINANCIALLY, PARTLY
  • 00:11:38.110 --> 00:11:41.140
  • BECAUSE INDIVIDUAL FREEDOMS GO BY THE WAYSIDE. AND BY THE WAY,
  • 00:11:41.150 --> 00:11:45.260
  • THERE'S AN ELITISM TO THIS, TOO. -YES, THERE IS. -IN RUSSIA,
  • 00:11:45.270 --> 00:11:48.230
  • WHEN THEY WENT TO TOTAL SOCIALISM, COMMUNISM, YOU STILL
  • 00:11:48.240 --> 00:11:51.170
  • HAD THE POWERFUL AND WEALTHY. THEY JUST WERE A CLIQUE TOGETHER
  • 00:11:51.180 --> 00:11:54.120
  • THAT OPPRESSED THE PEOPLE. BUT AT THE SAME TIME, WHAT I WAS
  • 00:11:54.130 --> 00:11:57.080
  • GONNA SAY ABOUT NATIONAL DEFENSE, IN NATO WE ARE JUST NOW
  • 00:11:57.090 --> 00:11:59.290
  • GETTING OUR NATO ALLIES TO PAY 2 PERCENT OF THEIR GDP FOR
  • 00:12:00.020 --> 00:12:03.290
  • NATIONAL DEFENSE. AND THE REASON THEY COULD NOT AFFORD TO PAY
  • 00:12:04.000 --> 00:12:07.010
  • MORE THAN THAT GOING INTO THIS IS BECAUSE OF THEIR SOCIALIST
  • 00:12:07.020 --> 00:12:10.010
  • POLICY. IT WOULD WRECK NATIONAL DEFENSE. -SO WHEN YOU LOOK AT
  • 00:12:10.020 --> 00:12:12.290
  • IT, AGAIN, I POINT OUT TO WHAT FRANKLIN SAID, AND THAT IS WE
  • 00:12:13.000 --> 00:12:16.290
  • ARE A CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC, MADAM, CONGRESSWOMAN CORTEZ, IF
  • 00:12:17.000 --> 00:12:20.250
  • WE CAN KEEP IT. IF YOU CAN KEEP IT. AND WE'VE GOT TO, WE HAVE TO
  • 00:12:20.260 --> 00:12:23.060
  • KEEP IT, THOUGH, BECAUSE IT IS WHAT WORKS. ANDY EKONOMOU:
  • 00:12:23.070 --> 00:12:25.270
  • WELL, IT IS. AND YOU KNOW, I SEE SOCIALIST COUNTRIES, GREECE,
  • 00:12:25.280 --> 00:12:28.130
  • FROM WHICH MY ANCESTORS DERIVE, THE GARBAGE IS PILING UP IN
  • 00:12:28.140 --> 00:12:32.150
  • ATHENS RIGHT NOW. LOOK AT WHAT THE FRENCH DID WITH THEIR
  • 00:12:32.160 --> 00:12:34.290
  • SOCIALIST ECONOMY. LOOK AT WHAT THE BRITISH DID. LOOK AT
  • 00:12:35.000 --> 00:12:37.130
  • VENEZUELA. LOOK AT ALL THESE COUNTRIES IN WHICH SOCIALISM WAS
  • 00:12:37.140 --> 00:12:40.020
  • EMPOWERED AND BECAME THE GOVERNMENT. SO TO SAY THAT
  • 00:12:40.030 --> 00:12:43.030
  • AMERICAN WEALTH CREATION IS IMMORAL AND WAS THE SYSTEM THAT
  • 00:12:43.040 --> 00:12:47.150
  • MADE THIS THE GREATEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD FOR SO MANY REASONS
  • 00:12:47.160 --> 00:12:49.180
  • OUGHT TO BE REVAMPED INTO THIS STYLE THAT MISS CORTEZ TALKS
  • 00:12:49.190 --> 00:12:54.070
  • ABOUT IS RIDICULOUS. AND OUR HEALTH CARE SYSTEM, SHE WANTS
  • 00:12:54.080 --> 00:12:57.000
  • GOVERNMENT HEALTH CARE RUN TOTALLY BY THE GOVERNMENT. HOW
  • 00:12:57.010 --> 00:13:00.140
  • MANY PEOPLE COME TO THE UNITED STATES FOR SERIOUS OPERATIONS?
  • 00:13:00.150 --> 00:13:04.260
  • HOW MANY PEOPLE GO TO MOROCCO FOR SERIOUS OPERATIONS? -RIGHT.
  • 00:13:04.270 --> 00:13:08.110
  • -OR TO FRANCE OR TO GREECE OR TO ANY PLACE LIKE THAT? WHY
  • 00:13:08.120 --> 00:13:11.190
  • DON'T WE TALK ABOUT THAT? LOOK, THE GOVERNMENT HAS TWO
  • 00:13:11.200 --> 00:13:14.120
  • RESPONSIBILITIES, IN MY ESTIMATE. I DON'T WANT THE
  • 00:13:14.130 --> 00:13:16.190
  • GOVERNMENT IN MY BUSINESS. IT HAS TWO RESPONSIBILITIES, DEFEND
  • 00:13:16.200 --> 00:13:19.050
  • THE NATION AND DELIVER THE MAIL. -YEAH, WELL, THEY WANT TO DO A
  • 00:13:19.060 --> 00:13:23.150
  • LOT MORE THAN THAT. SO HARRY, IF YOU LOOK AT THE PROPOSAL AND YOU
  • 00:13:23.160 --> 00:13:27.000
  • LOOK AT THEIR PLATFORM OF THE PARTIES THAT THEY'RE AFFILIATING
  • 00:13:27.010 --> 00:13:30.080
  • WITH AND THIS SHIFT IN THE, IT'S CLEARLY, I MEAN, I GUESS YOU
  • 00:13:30.090 --> 00:13:33.150
  • WOULD CALL IT A FIGHT WITHIN, I'M GONNA ASK JORDAN THIS TOO, A
  • 00:13:33.160 --> 00:13:35.180
  • FIGHT WITHIN THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY HERE, BUT THIS MOVED TO
  • 00:13:35.190 --> 00:13:39.100
  • SOCIALISM, WHICH THE PRESIDENT CALLED OUT, BUT WHICH THESE
  • 00:13:39.110 --> 00:13:41.130
  • OTHERS ARE PROMOTING AGGRESSIVELY, INCLUDING THOSE
  • 00:13:41.140 --> 00:13:43.010
  • THAT ARE GOING TO BE RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT, REALLY DOES PUT US ON
  • 00:13:43.020 --> 00:13:45.040
  • A DANGEROUS PATH. -IT DOES PUT US ON A VERY DANGEROUS PATH, BUT
  • 00:13:45.050 --> 00:13:49.180
  • ALSO IT PUTS US ON AN INCOHERENT PATH. IT'S IMPORTANT TO NOTE
  • 00:13:49.190 --> 00:13:55.000
  • THAT THE GREEN NEW DEAL WOULD ELIMINATE NUCLEAR POWER, BUT AT
  • 00:13:55.010 --> 00:14:00.120
  • THE SAME TIME IT IS FOCUSED ON REDUCING CARBON EMISSIONS. -ARE
  • 00:14:00.130 --> 00:14:04.220
  • THE RUSSIANS AND THE CHINESE AND THE NORTH KOREANS GONNA DO ALL
  • 00:14:04.230 --> 00:14:08.190
  • THIS? -ABSOLUTELY NOT! -ARE THE IRANIANS GONNA ADOPT A GREEN
  • 00:14:08.200 --> 00:14:11.130
  • DEAL? -BUT NUCLEAR POWER DOES NOT PRODUCE CARBON EMISSIONS.
  • 00:14:11.140 --> 00:14:16.260
  • IT'S VERY POSSIBLE THAT THE AUTHORS OF THE GREEN NEW DEAL
  • 00:14:16.270 --> 00:14:20.000
  • DON'T EVEN UNDERSTAND THAT. SO WHAT ARE WE SAYING? WE'RE SAYING
  • 00:14:20.010 --> 00:14:24.010
  • THAT THE PROPONENTS OF THE GREEN NEW DEAL, THEY WISH TO EMPOWER
  • 00:14:24.020 --> 00:14:29.170
  • ANALYSIS THAT MAKES NO SENSE. AND I SAID PREVIOUSLY THEIR
  • 00:14:29.180 --> 00:14:35.050
  • ANALYSIS IS JUVENILE, BOTH AT AN EMPIRICAL AND A RATIONAL LEVEL.
  • 00:14:35.060 --> 00:14:40.110
  • -WE'VE GOT A LOT MORE ON THIS. WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE
  • 00:14:40.120 --> 00:14:42.130
  • FUNDAMENTAL OF WHO WE ARE AS A PEOPLE. WHAT IS A CONSTITUTIONAL
  • 00:14:42.140 --> 00:14:48.060
  • REPUBLIC? WE'RE DEALING WITH ISSUES OF SOCIALISM. WE'RE
  • 00:14:48.070 --> 00:14:52.050
  • DEALING WITH ISSUES OF CHANGING THE VERY FABRIC OF OUR COUNTRY.
  • 00:14:52.060 --> 00:14:56.180
  • THAT IS NOT WHAT WE SHOULD ALLOW. IT'S SERVED US WELL, THIS
  • 00:14:56.190 --> 00:14:59.010
  • CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES. OUR JOB IS TO DEFEND IT.
  • 00:14:59.020 --> 00:15:01.130
  • WE'LL BE BACK WITH MORE IN JUST A MOMENT.
  • 00:15:01.140 --> 00:15:03.080
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:15:03.090 --> 00:15:09.020
  • JAY SEKULOW: HEY, WELCOME BACK TO THE BROADCAST EVERYONE. WE'RE
  • 00:15:09.030 --> 00:15:10.100
  • GOING TO GO IN THE ORDER THAT YOU'VE BEEN HOLDING. LET'S GO
  • 00:15:10.110 --> 00:15:11.160
  • AHEAD AND START WITH STEPHANIE. JORDAN SEKULOW: STEPHANIE
  • 00:15:11.170 --> 00:15:13.230
  • CALLING FROM FLORIDA ON LINE FIVE. STEPHANIE, WELCOME TO JAY
  • 00:15:13.240 --> 00:15:16.100
  • SEKULOW LIVE. -HEY, STEPHANIE. GO AHEAD. YOU'RE ON THE AIR.
  • 00:15:16.110 --> 00:15:18.140
  • -THANK YOU FOR TAKING MY CALL. -SURE. -I'M CONCERNED NOT SO
  • 00:15:18.150 --> 00:15:22.060
  • MUCH ABOUT CORTEZ BUT ABOUT THESE 64 PEOPLE THAT HAVE SIGNED
  • 00:15:22.070 --> 00:15:25.230
  • ON TO THIS. THE PLAN IS NOT PRAGMATIC. IT WILL NOT WORK. I
  • 00:15:25.240 --> 00:15:30.060
  • THINK IF WE CAN SHOW THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HOW IT'S NOT
  • 00:15:30.070 --> 00:15:35.110
  • GOING TO WORK, MOST PEOPLE HAVE COMMON SENSE. OKAY? OBVIOUSLY,
  • 00:15:35.120 --> 00:15:40.010
  • THESE PEOPLE DO NOT. I'M CONCERNED ABOUT THE FIVE PEOPLE
  • 00:15:40.020 --> 00:15:43.180
  • THAT ARE RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT SIGNING ON TO THIS. -YEP!
  • 00:15:43.190 --> 00:15:46.010
  • -WHAT DOES IT SAY ABOUT THEM? -WELL, I ASKED THIS QUESTION
  • 00:15:46.020 --> 00:15:47.280
  • DURING THE BREAK. AND I'LL START WITH THANN AND THEN GO TO
  • 00:15:47.290 --> 00:15:49.240
  • JORDAN, WHAT IS THE POLITICAL CALCULUS IN THIS MOVE, THANN?
  • 00:15:49.250 --> 00:15:53.140
  • THANN BENNETT: WELL, I THINK IT'S A SHORT-TERM VERSUS A
  • 00:15:53.150 --> 00:15:57.170
  • LONG-TERM ONE. WE TALKED ABOUT THIS IN THE BREAK, JAY, BUT I
  • 00:15:57.180 --> 00:15:59.120
  • THINK IT'S SUCH A LITMUS TEST FOR ENERGY INSIDE THE DEMOCRAT
  • 00:15:59.130 --> 00:16:01.100
  • PARTY THAT THESE CANDIDATES, EVEN THOUGH THEY KNOW THIS
  • 00:16:01.110 --> 00:16:04.040
  • POLICY DOES NOT WORK, THEY DON'T THINK THEY CAN BE THE NOMINEE
  • 00:16:04.050 --> 00:16:06.210
  • WITHOUT BEING FOR IT. I MEAN, JAY, WE LIVE IN A GLOBAL
  • 00:16:06.220 --> 00:16:09.230
  • ECONOMY. DO THEY REALLY THINK THAT ELIMINATING AIR TRAVEL IS
  • 00:16:09.240 --> 00:16:13.020
  • NOT GOING TO DESTROY THE GLOBAL ECONOMY? I DON'T THINK THEY
  • 00:16:13.030 --> 00:16:15.200
  • ACTUALLY BELIEVE THAT. BUT, JAY, THEY'RE RUNNING ON IT BECAUSE
  • 00:16:15.210 --> 00:16:18.150
  • THEY'VE MADE A SHORT-TERM POLITICAL CALCULATION IN
  • 00:16:18.160 --> 00:16:20.250
  • EXCHANGE FOR A LONG-TERM BENEFIT FOR BOTH THE UNITED STATES AND
  • 00:16:20.260 --> 00:16:23.260
  • THE WORLD. QUITE FRANKLY, THE ONLY WAY TO STOP IT IS FOR THE
  • 00:16:23.270 --> 00:16:26.040
  • AMERICAN PEOPLE TO SEE THROUGH IT AND NOT ALLOW IT TO SUCCEED.
  • 00:16:26.050 --> 00:16:29.110
  • -THEY'RE GONNA COME UP WITH SOME, OH, WELL, THERE WILL BE
  • 00:16:29.120 --> 00:16:31.080
  • SOME AIR TRAVEL. YOU KNOW, THEY WANT TO LIMIT IT AS MUCH AS
  • 00:16:31.090 --> 00:16:34.010
  • POSSIBLE. DON'T WANT TO MAKE IT SOMETHING THAT'S REQUIRED. THE
  • 00:16:34.020 --> 00:16:36.010
  • PROBLEM WITH, I LIKE HIGH-SPEED RAIL, I USED IT ALL THE TIME
  • 00:16:36.020 --> 00:16:38.180
  • WHEN WE LIVED IN WASHINGTON D.C. BECAUSE THERE WAS A CORRIDOR,
  • 00:16:38.190 --> 00:16:40.180
  • THE NORTHEAST CORRIDOR WAS GREAT. I MEAN, YOU HAVE BOSTON,
  • 00:16:40.190 --> 00:16:44.020
  • NEW YORK, PHILADELPHIA, D.C., IN BETWEEN THAT YOU HAVE WILMINGTON
  • 00:16:44.030 --> 00:16:50.070
  • AS WELL. I MEAN, SO YOU HAD A REASON TO HAVE HIGH-SPEED RAIL
  • 00:16:50.080 --> 00:16:53.050
  • BETWEEN THESE CONNECTIONS. AND IT'S BEEN FAIRLY SUCCESSFUL FOR
  • 00:16:53.060 --> 00:16:56.100
  • AMTRAK. I COULD SEE, YOU KNOW, SAN FRANCISCO, EVEN THE WEST
  • 00:16:56.110 --> 00:17:00.130
  • COAST YOU'VE GOT MAJOR CITIES ALONG THE COAST. NOW THERE'S
  • 00:17:00.140 --> 00:17:02.250
  • SOME BIG GAPS THERE, BUT YOU LOOK AT THE REST OF THE COUNTRY,
  • 00:17:02.260 --> 00:17:05.100
  • YOU'D HAVE TO HAVE SOME SUPER HIGH-SPEED RAIL TO BE COMPETING
  • 00:17:05.110 --> 00:17:08.270
  • WITH AIR TRAVEL, TO NOT REALLY LIMIT THE ABILITY OF BUSINESS. I
  • 00:17:08.280 --> 00:17:11.120
  • THINK TECHNOLOGY, WE'RE ALREADY CUTTING DOWN ON HOW MANY
  • 00:17:11.130 --> 00:17:14.020
  • BUSINESS TRIPS WE HAVE TO MAKE WHERE IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE
  • 00:17:14.030 --> 00:17:16.270
  • FACE-TO-FACE. BY THE TECHNOLOGY WE HAVE TO BE ABLE TO HAVE
  • 00:17:16.280 --> 00:17:19.170
  • CONVERSATIONS FACE-TO-FACE THROUGH TECH. SO AGAIN, I THINK
  • 00:17:19.180 --> 00:17:24.260
  • INVESTING IN THAT, IT REALLY GETS SOME OF THAT ACCOMPLISHED.
  • 00:17:24.270 --> 00:17:28.230
  • OBVIOUSLY, FOREIGN TRAVEL, THINGS LIKE THAT, YOU'RE GONNA
  • 00:17:28.240 --> 00:17:31.120
  • HAVE TO HAVE AIRCRAFT INVOLVED. IT IS, TO ME, WHAT IS SCARY
  • 00:17:31.130 --> 00:17:36.140
  • ABOUT THIS TO ME IS THAT IF ONE OF THESE PEOPLE IS THE NOMINEE
  • 00:17:36.150 --> 00:17:39.280
  • FOR PRESIDENT, I DON'T THINK THEY'LL PROBABLY WIN, BY THE
  • 00:17:39.290 --> 00:17:42.090
  • WAY, BECAUSE OF THESE KIND OF STUNTS, BUT THEY WILL GET 40
  • 00:17:42.100 --> 00:17:45.160
  • PLUS PERCENT OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE'S VOTES. -RIGHT. -SO WE
  • 00:17:45.170 --> 00:17:47.270
  • THINK THEY'LL, YOU KNOW, AS OUR CALLER SAID THE AMERICAN PEOPLE
  • 00:17:47.280 --> 00:17:49.270
  • ARE NOT THIS GULLIBLE, UH, FORTY PERCENT PLUS OF THE AMERICAN
  • 00:17:49.280 --> 00:17:53.060
  • PEOPLE ARE AUTOMATICALLY GONNA VOTE FOR ONE OF THESE PEOPLE,
  • 00:17:53.070 --> 00:17:55.080
  • LIKELY. -HMM. LET'S TAKE ANOTHER PHONE CALL. -YEP, TIM
  • 00:17:55.090 --> 00:17:58.100
  • IN OHIO ON LINE ONE. TIM, WELCOME TO JAY SEKULOW LIVE.
  • 00:17:58.110 --> 00:18:02.020
  • -HEY, TIM. -HEY, GOOD AFTERNOON. THANK YOU FOR ALL
  • 00:18:02.030 --> 00:18:05.260
  • YOUR SUPPORT, GENTLEMEN. MY QUESTION IS THIS, COULD THIS
  • 00:18:05.270 --> 00:18:12.200
  • ALMOST BE A DEMOCRATIC STRATEGY TO TEST THE WATERS TO SEE HOW
  • 00:18:12.210 --> 00:18:16.040
  • MUCH KIND OF SUPPORT THEY MAY HAVE FOR THIS FAR LEFT THINKING?
  • 00:18:16.050 --> 00:18:21.040
  • -WELL, I THINK WHAT JORDAN SAID IS RIGHT, AND THANN WAS ALLUDING
  • 00:18:21.050 --> 00:18:23.190
  • TO THIS, TOO, AND THAT IS I THINK THAT THEY MADE THE
  • 00:18:23.200 --> 00:18:25.200
  • CALCULATION NOW THAT TO WIN THE NOMINATION, THEY HAVE TO APPEASE
  • 00:18:25.210 --> 00:18:29.110
  • THIS SIDE OF THE PARTY BECAUSE THAT'S WHERE THE MOMENTUM IS.
  • 00:18:29.120 --> 00:18:31.210
  • THEN MOVE, I GUESS, A LITTLE BIT MORE MODERATE. ALTHOUGH, THEY'RE
  • 00:18:31.220 --> 00:18:34.150
  • TRYING TO GET RID OF THE RADICAL CONSERVATIVES WITHIN THE
  • 00:18:34.160 --> 00:18:36.130
  • DEMOCRATIC PARTY, WHICH, WES, I'M TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHO
  • 00:18:36.140 --> 00:18:38.140
  • THEY ARE EXACTLY, THESE RADICAL CONSERVATIVES. -THEY'RE EXTINCT
  • 00:18:38.150 --> 00:18:40.110
  • ALONG WITH THE DINOSAURS. I HAVEN'T SEEN ONE IN A LONG, LONG
  • 00:18:40.120 --> 00:18:43.050
  • TIME. THE THING ABOUT IT IS, THOUGH, I THINK PART OF IT MAY
  • 00:18:43.060 --> 00:18:46.150
  • BE THIS STRATEGY OF MOVING TO THE FAR LEFT FOR THE PRIMARY
  • 00:18:46.160 --> 00:18:48.270
  • SEASON, WHAT HAVE YOU. BUT THERE'S AN ELEMENT OF THIS THAT
  • 00:18:48.280 --> 00:18:51.160
  • IT SHOWS JUST HOW OUT OF TOUCH THE LEFT-WING PROGRESSIVES ARE
  • 00:18:51.170 --> 00:18:57.110
  • WITH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. JUST LIKE THE PEOPLE WERE SHOCKED BY
  • 00:18:57.120 --> 00:19:00.150
  • THE NEW YORK LAW THAT ALLOWS FOR TAKING A BABY'S LIFE WHEN IT'S
  • 00:19:00.160 --> 00:19:04.070
  • FIRST DELIVERED EVEN IF IT'S FULL-TERM, AND IT SHOCKED THE
  • 00:19:04.080 --> 00:19:06.240
  • CONSCIENCE OF MOST AMERICANS, THAT NEW ABORTION LAW. I THINK
  • 00:19:06.250 --> 00:19:09.250
  • THIS KIND OF RADICAL PROPOSAL ALSO SHOCKS THE CONSCIENCE OF
  • 00:19:09.260 --> 00:19:13.250
  • THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. AND I THINK, ULTIMATELY, IT WILL
  • 00:19:13.260 --> 00:19:16.260
  • BACKFIRE. BUT ON THE OTHER HAND WE HAVE TO BE ON GUARD AGAINST
  • 00:19:16.270 --> 00:19:20.020
  • THIS GRADUAL DRIFT TOWARDS GOVERNMENT CONTROL AND TOWARD
  • 00:19:20.030 --> 00:19:23.190
  • SOCIALIST POLICIES. -THIS IS, I THINK, HOW YOU REBIRTH A
  • 00:19:23.200 --> 00:19:25.180
  • CONSERVATIVE MOVEMENT AGAIN. I THINK IT'S THE SAME THING WITH
  • 00:19:25.190 --> 00:19:27.170
  • THE ABORTION ISSUE IN VIRGINIA. THEY PUSH IT SO FAR, THEY PUSH
  • 00:19:27.180 --> 00:19:31.090
  • IT SO FAR THAT THE RESPONSE IS THAT THE SPONSORS OF THE BILL,
  • 00:19:31.100 --> 00:19:34.270
  • WHEN THEY ACTUALLY UTTER THE WORDS THEY'RE SAYING, THEY GO,
  • 00:19:34.280 --> 00:19:37.080
  • I'M WITHDRAWING MY SUPPORT OF MY BILL, BECAUSE THEY REALIZE WHAT
  • 00:19:37.090 --> 00:19:41.120
  • THEY'RE SAYING. SO HOPEFULLY, HERE THIS IS GOING TO BE PART OF
  • 00:19:41.130 --> 00:19:44.030
  • OUR STRATEGY, HARRY, AS YOUR DIRECTOR OF OUR POLICY, IS IT'S
  • 00:19:44.040 --> 00:19:46.260
  • SO RADICAL, IT'S SO EXTREME, ALTHOUGH IT'S GOT A LOT OF
  • 00:19:46.270 --> 00:19:49.260
  • SUPPORT, THAT YOU HOPE THERE'S SOME WISDOM COMES INTO THIS. BUT
  • 00:19:49.270 --> 00:19:53.190
  • BY POINTING IT OUT, LISTEN, I ALWAYS SAY POINT TO THE
  • 00:19:53.200 --> 00:19:55.230
  • EVIDENCE. THIS IS ONE OF THOSE EXAMPLES. -I THINK YOU'RE
  • 00:19:55.240 --> 00:19:57.260
  • ABSOLUTELY CORRECT, JAY. BUT I ALSO THINK THAT THE AMERICAN
  • 00:19:57.270 --> 00:20:02.110
  • PEOPLE SHOULD DEMAND THAT PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES FOR THE
  • 00:20:02.120 --> 00:20:07.070
  • DEMOCRAT NOMINATION, IF THEY TRULY SUPPORT THE GREEN NEW
  • 00:20:07.080 --> 00:20:11.290
  • DEAL, THEY SHOULD SWEAR OFF OF ALL AIR TRAVEL WHILE PURSUING
  • 00:20:12.000 --> 00:20:17.280
  • THE NOMINATION. THAT'S NUMBER ONE. BECAUSE THAT WOULD REDUCE
  • 00:20:17.290 --> 00:20:21.280
  • THE NUMBER OF CARBON EMISSIONS AND POSSIBLY REDUCE THE NUMBER
  • 00:20:21.290 --> 00:20:26.280
  • OR THE AMOUNT OF METHANE GAS EMITTED BY PRESIDENTIAL
  • 00:20:26.290 --> 00:20:31.080
  • CANDIDATES GOING FORWARD. [LAUGHTER] -LET ME TAKE IT
  • 00:20:31.090 --> 00:20:35.070
  • ANOTHER STEP. HOW ABOUT IF YOU ASK THEM THIS QUESTION, ANDY, IN
  • 00:20:35.080 --> 00:20:38.160
  • A DEBATE? DO YOU BELIEVE THE UNITED STATES IS A
  • 00:20:38.170 --> 00:20:40.260
  • CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC? I DON'T KNOW IF THEY WOULD ANSWER THAT
  • 00:20:40.270 --> 00:20:44.050
  • THAT IS CORRECT. -NO, I DON'T THINK THEY WOULD. I DON'T THINK
  • 00:20:44.060 --> 00:20:47.110
  • THEY WOULD. I THINK THEY WOULD BE CONSTRAINED TO SAY, NO, IT
  • 00:20:47.120 --> 00:20:50.080
  • MAY HAVE BEEN ONCE, BUT IT ISN'T ANYMORE. -RIGHT. -AND AS FAR
  • 00:20:50.090 --> 00:20:52.120
  • AS WE ARE CONCERNED, IF WE CAN REFORM IT IN OUR IMAGE IT WILL
  • 00:20:52.130 --> 00:20:55.190
  • BE A SOCIALIST STATE; THAT'S WHAT IT'S GONNA BE. -WHAT DO
  • 00:20:55.200 --> 00:20:59.050
  • YOU THINK, JORDAN? -I THINK THAT, ULTIMATELY, IT IS AN
  • 00:20:59.060 --> 00:21:02.070
  • ATTEMPT BY DEMOCRATS, THE CANDIDATES AND HIGH-PROFILE
  • 00:21:02.080 --> 00:21:06.290
  • MEMBERS AND THESE LEFTIST MEMBERS, AND THEY'RE GONNA SAY,
  • 00:21:07.000 --> 00:21:09.110
  • YOU KNOW, I THINK I CAN GET AWAY WITH SUPPORTING THIS AND THEN
  • 00:21:09.120 --> 00:21:13.190
  • TAMPERING IT DOWN. OH, YOU KNOW, THE TWENTY NINE-YEAR-OLD HAD
  • 00:21:13.200 --> 00:21:16.120
  • SOME GREAT IDEAS BUT LET'S FLUSH THOSE OUT. WHEN WE FLUSH THOSE
  • 00:21:16.130 --> 00:21:20.240
  • OUT, WE'RE NOT TRYING TO BAN ALL AIR, WE'RE NOT GONNA TAKE ALL
  • 00:21:20.250 --> 00:21:23.010
  • YOUR COWS AWAY, WE'RE NOT GONNA. SO IT'S GONNA BE TRYING TO PIVOT
  • 00:21:23.020 --> 00:21:25.290
  • BACK TO THE MIDDLE. THIS IS WHY THEY'VE GOT THE SCHULTZ PROBLEM,
  • 00:21:26.000 --> 00:21:29.010
  • THE STARBUCKS, FORMER STARBUCKS CEO. IS HE IS SAYING THESE
  • 00:21:29.020 --> 00:21:34.210
  • PEOPLE HAVE LOST IT TO THE LEFT. HE'S NOT QUITE A REPUBLICAN.
  • 00:21:34.220 --> 00:21:37.220
  • WHAT DOES THAT MEAN IF HE RUNS? THEY HAVE ZERO CHANCE. -RIGHT!
  • 00:21:37.230 --> 00:21:42.210
  • -I MEAN, YOU CAN'T, IT'S LIKE WHAT ROSS PEROT DID H.W. BUSH.
  • 00:21:42.220 --> 00:21:45.050
  • -IF HE RUNS AS AN INDEPENDENT. -YEAH. -ALL RIGHT, LET'S GRAB
  • 00:21:45.060 --> 00:21:47.120
  • ANOTHER CALL. LYNETTE, IN NEW YORK ON LINE FOUR. LYNETTE,
  • 00:21:47.130 --> 00:21:49.220
  • WELCOME TO JAY SEKULOW LIVE. -HI, LYNETTE. -GOD BLESS YOU,
  • 00:21:49.230 --> 00:21:53.240
  • JAY, AND ALL OF YOUR STAFF. -THANKS. -I PRAY FOR YOU
  • 00:21:53.250 --> 00:21:56.170
  • REGULARLY. AND SUPPORT YOU. -I APPRECIATE THAT. THANK YOU.
  • 00:21:56.180 --> 00:22:00.220
  • -AND MY COMMENT-I AGREE WITH WHEN YOU MENTION THAT THIS IS A
  • 00:22:00.230 --> 00:22:06.120
  • GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY TO, BASICALLY, STRENGTHEN THE
  • 00:22:06.130 --> 00:22:10.120
  • CONSERVATIVE SIDE. MY CONCERN IS THAT WE HAVE TO USE THIS AS AN
  • 00:22:10.130 --> 00:22:16.150
  • OPPORTUNITY TO ACTUALLY COMMUNICATE AND ACTUALLY THINK;
  • 00:22:16.160 --> 00:22:19.150
  • SOMETHING THAT WE HAVE NOT BEEN DOING AS A WHOLE IN OUR CULTURE
  • 00:22:19.160 --> 00:22:26.120
  • FOR A WHILE. WE JUST HAVE THESE SOUND BITES AND WE HAVE PEOPLE
  • 00:22:26.130 --> 00:22:31.270
  • THAT PRESENT AN IDEA AND THEN WE CONCENTRATE ON HOW IT MAKES ME
  • 00:22:31.280 --> 00:22:35.190
  • FEEL AND THINGS LIKE THIS. SO WE HAVE TO USE THIS AS AN
  • 00:22:35.200 --> 00:22:40.130
  • OPPORTUNITY TO ACTUALLY LOOK AT FACTS, ACTUALLY SIT DOWN AND
  • 00:22:40.140 --> 00:22:45.020
  • TALK ABOUT THINGS, NOT JUST LABEL PEOPLE, -YOU'RE 100
  • 00:22:45.030 --> 00:22:49.070
  • PERCENT CORRECT. - OR LABEL CONCEPTS. ON MY JOB I WAS
  • 00:22:49.080 --> 00:22:53.130
  • WORKING SIDE BY SIDE WITH A SOCIALIST. I WAS THE ONLY PERSON
  • 00:22:53.140 --> 00:22:59.200
  • ON THE WHOLE ROW THAT KNEW WHAT A SOCIALIST WAS. -YOU ARE, LET
  • 00:22:59.210 --> 00:23:05.020
  • ME TELL YOU, LYNETTE, YOU ARE EXACTLY CORRECT. AND WHAT WE'RE
  • 00:23:05.030 --> 00:23:07.150
  • GOING TO DO IS OUTLINE WHAT THE SOCIALIST PARTY IS, WHAT
  • 00:23:07.160 --> 00:23:10.190
  • SOCIALISM STANDS FOR, HOW IT HAS FAILED. AND WHEN THEY KEEP
  • 00:23:10.200 --> 00:23:14.170
  • TALKING ABOUT THIS IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, HOW WE SHOULD
  • 00:23:14.180 --> 00:23:16.250
  • NEVER BE THAT. WE SHOULD NEVER GO IN THAT DIRECTION. AND OUR
  • 00:23:16.260 --> 00:23:21.080
  • JOB AT THE AMERICAN CENTER, AGAIN, THIS IS NOT A COURTROOM
  • 00:23:21.090 --> 00:23:23.030
  • BATTLE, THIS IS THE HEARTS AND MINDS OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
  • 00:23:23.040 --> 00:23:25.170
  • THIS IS A BATTLE IN PUBLIC POLICY. THIS IS A BATTLE IN
  • 00:23:25.180 --> 00:23:29.040
  • CONGRESS. WE'RE GONNA HAVE TO FIGHT FOR THE VERY FOUNDATION OF
  • 00:23:29.050 --> 00:23:32.060
  • WHAT IS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. WE ARE A CONSTITUTIONAL
  • 00:23:32.070 --> 00:23:36.190
  • REPUBLIC. AS FRANKLIN SAID, IT IS A CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC,
  • 00:23:36.200 --> 00:23:42.080
  • MADAM, IF YOU CAN KEEP IT. THAT'S GONNA DO IT FOR THE
  • 00:23:42.090 --> 00:23:45.120
  • BROADCAST THIS WEEK. WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO PRAY FOR OUR
  • 00:23:45.130 --> 00:23:47.230
  • LEGAL TEAM AS WE PUT TOGETHER LEGAL POSITIONS DEALING WITH

  • THESE CRITICAL ISSUES, THE VERY FOUNDATION OF WHO WE ARE AS A
  • 00:23:51.100 --> 00:23:54.130
  • COUNTRY. THAT'S WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT HERE. SO WE
  • 00:23:54.140 --> 00:23:57.120
  • ENCOURAGE YOU TO STAND WITH US AND THE WAY TO DO IT IS PRAY FOR
  • 00:23:57.130 --> 00:24:00.080

  • SUPPORT TO TBN. AND THAT ALLOWS US TO DEFEND OUR CONSTITUTION.
  • 00:24:06.260 --> 00:24:11.030
