"On President Trump's tax is allegedly somebody leaked tax return to the president. I don't know if it's true or not. Michael shares a very good reporter. I would not have buried the way his editor did The fact that the president paid $70 million in taxes in 5 2006 and seven I think that's a total, not an annual. But I can't really tell Hank Cavanaugh, with whom I authored a book about the fair tax fantasy many years ago sent me a note Last night. I read the whole thing. A couple of interesting point but surrounded by so much innuendo. When you fight your way through the actual tax return info offer. They're just few surprises. Business income, offsetting business losses as to his network. Who knows? General Focus on Leisure has to have been a disaster this year. I really don't know. And I don't know that. I just don't think it's what the left thinks it is when you pay $70 million in taxes. In 5 2006 and seven and $750 in taxes in 2016 and 2017. I don't think anyone votes on that. I just don't and they might, I could be wrong. I just think they think he's a rich guy. In some years. He wins in some years. These offsets losses. And doesn't pay taxes. And then years there's the bad years and good years. He pays a lot of taxes. Here's what I want you to this year alliance defending freedom in the wake of President Trump's nomination of H B. Uh, we need to ask you what you fight alongside of the people who will argue before her for religious freedom. That's the alliance. Defending Freedom President Michael Farris to the A. T. F is one of the first to praise Amy County Barrettes nomination. But he also warned. Unfortunately, critics have wasted little time in criticizing her Catholic faith. It's suggesting that a conviction just qualify her from public service. We cannot allow that to happen is 80 s Christian Wagoner explains. No one should be maligned or disqualified from a position because of their religious convictions. I think it's important to bring this you know, in terms of it applies as much to an employee who would be discriminated against by her employer or college that would discriminate against the student and certainly senator that would discriminate against the judge. The principle applies to all of us. It does, but it despise. Applies with particular rigor to a senator who may not vote based upon someone's religious belief. It's just a constitutional prohibition. I argued a lot of Saturday and Sunday online with people about this, you just don't read apparently. And the hard left just despises Amy Cockney Barrett. You must understand it's because she is a devout Catholic, and it doesn't mean that there are Catholics or Democrats. There are I have named them all the time. It just means that the hard left despises pro life. Americans who happened to be Catholic on they're never going to change because they Value the right to abortion as they understand it so greatly. I need you to help us win cases. The alliance defending Freedom is asking for $100 from everyone who supports their religious liberty agenda. You go to hughhewitt dot com.

"In the midst of this Corona Virus Crisis Christians can care both for those who are suffering and for religious liberty. In fact. We must care about book for the Colson Center. I'm John Stonestreet. This is breakpoint. The media narratives that have emerged from the cove. Nineteen pandemic are varied some like the lack of supplies for medical personnel. First responders are very important others like the stories about churches in their defiant pastors who refuse to comply with physical distancing and stay at home orders. Well they're mostly selective in overblown. Of course there are churches and pastors behaving badly. A few very few less than one percent in fact to suggest that representative of all Christians is both misleading and slanderous also largely ignored in so many of these stories about these churches is the fact that in many towns counties and states the stay at home. Orders are well confusing. Some might even be illegal. Understandably many Christian struggled to know how to take the alarming headlines about pastors being arrested and many churches and Christian ministry struggle to know how to carry out their mission at this time. Kristen Wagner Vice President of the alliance defending freedom told me that. Atf is now receiving about one hundred calls a day from churches and other ministries about Cova nineteen related issues that are asking for help and understanding and complying with Federal State County municipal orders that regulations are being issued at these four levels of government is just one of the potential problems and the orders. Not Confusing or inconsistent are at times being applied and enforced inconsistently or in ways discriminatory against the free exercise of Religion. The most important thing to remember is Christian Wagner stated and during the podcast is that First Amendment rights cannot be suspended permanently. That's why the threat from New York City Mayor Bill De Blasios to permanently closed. Some churches after the crisis is manifestly absurd to main requirements. Must be met for any infringement on religious freedom including during a time of national or local emergency I any. Infringement must advance a compelling state interest and second it must be done in the least restrictive way possible now what constitutes a compelling state interest will of course vary according to circumstances for example the government could have a compelling interest to limit how people can gather during an emergency or even how many people can gather though this would infringe on religious liberty. And that's what the Kansas Supreme Court ruled over the weekend. The orders however must be clear. A person should be able to understand what is and what is not restricted without having to hire a lawyer according to wagoner many of the Cova nineteen restrictions are failing. This clarity test. Especially at the local level unclear restrictions make inconsistent enforcement by government nearly inevitable. This is especially true and local officials have an agenda and see an opportunity to take advantage of a crisis in crackdown on groups. They don't like including religious ones. For instance and both Charlotte and Greensboro North Carolina in recent days believers have been arrested for praying outside abortion clinics even though they were obeying local distancing orders last week the Mayor of Louisville Kentucky in explicitly attempted to bar a church from holding a drive in service. A service where no one gets out of their cars a federal judge cited scathingly with the church writing in his opinion that on Holy. Thursday in American mayor criminalized the communal celebration of Easter. That sentences. One this court never expected to see outside the pages of a dystopia novel or perhaps the pages of the onion now I was encouraged when Kristen Wagner told me that most of the time a simple letter written to state and local officials pointing out problems or seeking clarification in their is all it takes. The profession analogy of the alliance defending freedom one of their best tools. But they're pretty good in court to even in the best of times guarding our First Amendment freedoms can be an uphill battle and these are not the best of times that's why I'm grateful that Kristen Wagner and the alliance defending freedom. Are there to help. Guide us through these confusing times my interview with Christian Wagoner Airs Today on the break point. Podcast subscribe to the break point podcasts.

"My morning with you out to as well in the second story today my Kelly good morning how are yeah right you are you've got the market first I'm sorry to say it's the first Monday in October it is the Supreme Court is back in the browser playing the forty Niners tonight I hope you're watching you guys snag Margaret tower over it actually Senshi terrific Margaret night flew with John Bolton to Israel in Ankara Turkey in January when the president first announced he was going to pull out of Syria at that point the Turks wouldn't meet with palm bay you're totally stepped as we sat around for hours we went home since that time the president has been trying to get out of Syria because they're not want a permanent garrison there he is now said it is happening I don't really know what the alternative is Mike other than a permanent garrison of American troops there do you well were you you know the consequences in fact you've been on the ground you'll appreciate it the headline invited to actually is AM sorry Kurds and I really appreciate your recalling your travel with martyr which I didn't know about Margaret points out in her mobile why it matters for excuse me and the terms policy change could be deadly news Kurdish fighters in northern Iraq W. as partners in the fight against Iraq and she points out as you well know the Kurds have long feared the Turkey would cross the border and kill them if we left here people to understand there are about five million courage in Iraq they are not in danger they fought with us they are not in danger there are two million Kurds in Syria many of them are in danger there are eighteen million Kurds in Turkey who present a threat to the Turkish government that's why the Turks don't want the Syrian courage to organize and there are eight million Kurds in Iran who are always under repressive rule the Kurds got screwed when the map of the Middle East as drawn up after the collapse of the Ottoman Empire there's no way around it but the central part of their home is in northern Iraq this Syrian outposts that we have to help protect for many years we help them help us beat ISIS ISIS is defeated Mike Allen I keep asking my friends who want us to stay I asked in January as well how long because we've got to make pivot to the east we really need to get our troops and our our forces rearranged to deal with the growing significance of the people's Republic of China well you that's not of course as you well know that she was of course are not mutually exclusive but I hear your voice thank you support the president's efforts to pull back around the world are there any places where he would pull back in you what yes I would expand the flea then I would move more troops into Japan I would strengthen our presence in Australia I really believe that China represents the rest of the sentry challenged and that we have to be prepared to go toe to toe with them and that brings me to my third thing actually say am the NBA's China problem it's actually all of our problem let me begin by telling people the NBA had no idea what it was walk into in Houston general manager tweeted out support of Hong Kong demonstrators China brought the hammer down and the NBA we treated and I think Mike in danger the Hong Kong demonstrators by giving president G. a false signal about what the west will do if he uses violence I think is a very serious situation hundred percent and the United States cannot knuckle under to other countries reading our company just because their top officials exercise their first amendment rights and support democracy Ian Bremmer tweet says it all good the course hi Ian Bremmer who your listeners knows one of the the great authorities on international affairs has these Eurasia group and the Ian Bremmer tweet the NBA offers a formal statement how talented China and Hong Kong and just making sure what's yours no chronology the Houston Rockets general manager tweeted out support for the demonstrators in Hong Kong the Houston Rockets owner tweeted out he doesn't speak for the Houston Rockets our manager and then this formal a statement and then the port general manager and put out his hostage note I tweet but Ian Bremmer says I'm disgusted if you care about democracy freedom and American values what the NBA know how you feel and I don't know that that fans will understand the significance of this but here I want to return my central point when the NBA collapsed they suggested that China that if they use violence Americans will not object they are that could not be further from the truth the NBA is overly leveraged in China many of us or not and we would not do it that way so I I really think they've done a disservice to the Hong Kong demonstrators a terrible disservice in making them more vulnerable than they were before the weekend began it's a great point and sets a terrible precedent for US companies and how we're gonna respond planned yeah and then my talent lasting from this morning's access a and I've talked with running for about a new book catching kill I'm fascinated I cannot wait to read it I believe it will be provocative and have new stories and I

"To get the whole story Oakland I'm back bill o'reilly here and I will bring you the o'reilly update later this morning at ten eleven and twelve noon on eight sixty eight AM the answer welcome back America to here now joined by Christian Wagoner of the alliance defending freedom she is the senior counsel there you can follow it K. Wagoner ADF good morning Christine how are you good morning I'm great here big dances big day at the Supreme Court tomorrow for not only alliance defending freedom but Harris funeral homes tells about the case well it's a family owned funeral home they've been serving grieving families in the Detroit area for about a hundred years and they have a professional dress code that they've abided by to ensure that their employees are essentially blending into the background and that they're focusing on families that are in the greatest time of need the dress code prohibits tattoos in insurance they're wearing dark clothes no flashy jewelry or hair and insect specific in two thousand and seven of biological man was hired as the funeral director being the front face to be working with the grieving families and greeting gas and he agreed to abide by that dress code but after six years later told Tom rush the funeral home's owner that the employee would want to begin dressing in presenting as a woman at work Ross considered the different competing interests that he had of his other employees of Stevens the employee and the grieving families indeterminate that wasn't going to work the EEOC then decided to make this a test case to try to change the definition of sex discrimination under federal law to include transgender status an hour at the Supreme Court title seven was passed in nineteen sixty four there is simply no way that that Congress of nineteen sixty four intended it's protections to apply to transvestites transgendered status LGBTQ issues of any sort not a prayer that they did so sure not only fighting for the funeral home you're fighting for the court's approach to statutes are you not Christian that is the heart of this case the case law has said what you look at is what with the public have understood the law to mean that the terms sex to mean at the time the statute was enacted it's not what Congress had in it's mine and it's not how someone might understand it today it's in nineteen sixty four what does sex mean to the public and I cannot believe that the court will not side with you I don't know how you lose rather than an ideologically driven justice but I want people to understand since I've been appealing for funds for alliance defending freedom all month how long is this case been going on and what is the cost nine for many years including now two three two administrations because the started under the Obama administration and as I said the EEOC took a different position that it is taking now now the EEOC has cited under us and the United States is coming in on our side thank you I think something else eight takes a lot of effort a lot of money to to put these cases forward but the the other thing I think is important to bring out is sex discrimination also requires not only that you are taking into account whether someone is biologically male or female but you also need to prove that one Texas treated worse than the other and you certainly don't have that here at all men and women are required to abide by the dress code it is it is clearly I think it's an easy win but there are many other cases like if it goes the other way if this case is lost the phone lines have been pre med not brought it one could see every sort of nineteen sixty four act application of the ban on discrimination between men and women applied across the board across the United States well I think it's important to look at the drastic and widespread repercussions there will be raising this at the court tomorrow if you think about title nine and the equal opportunity for women it's best to provide we're literally working with clients in Connecticut where high school girls have washed out because two boys are competing against them and they've been displaced from fifteen state championships in just a couple years or you know he we've talked about the shelter in anchorage Alaska where anchorages taken the position that this shelter must admit biological men into the women's shelter to sleep three feet away from women who have been sex traffic and experienced domestic violence and I haven't even started with the privacy implications I have a student who's been caught undressed in a locker room turns around to see another student of a different biological sex also on draft and their implications to health care providers and certainly as you know the pronoun issue compelled speech it goes on and on when who's gonna argue this tomorrow for ADF Christian John purchase going to argue that he's our VP of appellate advocacy in the former Solicitor General of Michigan terrific choice and I I just want to say people are praying for you but I want them also to contribute to you and Kristin it is a case on Tuesday morning I hope you come back and tell me on Wednesday how the argument went so that we can find out or John can join me are you gonna be in the courtroom yes I am not we're working hard to get there and looking forward to the day thank you and I I want to close by asking everyone out there these are important cases please go over to you your dot com the banner is at the top it's at the very top of you you're a dot com but you can call right now eight six six seven hundred ten sixty eight six six seven hundred ten sixty alliance defending freedom headed to the Supreme Court again tomorrow they are nine you know over the past I think three years nine and now they don't lose when they go up there pray that they don't lose tomorrow it is Congress's.

"That studio talking now with my calendar back COS actions saying of the newsletter I begin my morning with you out to as well in the second story today Mike Allen good morning how are you but you are you gotta Margaret first I'm sorry to say **** first Monday in October you it is the Supreme Court is back in the browser playing the forty Niners tonight I hope you're watching you guys snag Margaret tower over it actually Senshi terrific Margaret night flew with John Bolton to Israel in Ankara Turkey in January when the president first announced he was going to pull out of Syria at that point the Turks wouldn't meet with both they just totally stepped as we sat around for hours we went home since that time the president has been trying to get out of Syria because they're not want a permanent garrison there he is now said it is happening I don't really know what the alternative is Mike other than a permanent garrison of American troops there do you over you you know the consequences in fact you've been on the ground you'll appreciate it the headline of item two axes Hey I'm sorry curves and I really appreciate your recalling your travel with martyr which I didn't know about Margaret points out in her bubble why it matters for actually is a and the terms policy change could be deadly news for the Kurdish fighters in northern Iraq the venue as partners in the fight against Iraq and she points out as you well know the Kurds have long feared the Turkey would cross the border and tell them if we left here people to understand there are about five million Kurds in Iraq they're not in danger they thought with us they are not in danger there are two million Kurds in Syria many of them are in danger there are eighteen million Kurds in Turkey who present a threat to the Turkish government that's why the Turks don't want the Syrian courage to organized and there are eight million Kurds in Iran who are always under repressive rule the Kurds got screwed when the map of the Middle East as drawn up after the collapse of the Ottoman Empire there's no way around it but the central part of their home is in northern Iraq this Syrian outposts that we have helped protect for many years we help them help us beat ISIS ISIS is defeated Mike Allen I keep asking my friends who want us to stay I asked in January as well how long because we've got to make a payment to the east we really need to get our troops and our our forces rearranged to deal with the growing significance of the people's Republic of China well you that's not of course as you well know that she was of course are not mutually exclusive but I hear your voice thank you support the president's efforts to pull back around the world are there any places where he would pull back the what yes I would expand the flea then I would move more troops into Japan I would strengthen our presence in Australia I really believe that China represents the rest of the century challenge and that we have to be prepared to go toe to toe with them and that brings me to my third thing actually say the NBA's China problem it's actually all of our problem let me begin by telling people the NBA had no idea what it was walk into when Houston general manager tweeted out support of Hong Kong demonstrators China brought that hammer down and the NBA we treated and I think Mike in danger the Hong Kong demonstrators by giving president G. a false signal about what the west will do if he uses violence I think is a very serious situation hundred percent and the United States cannot knuckle under to other countries reading our company just because their top officials exercise their first amendment rights and support democracy Ian Bremmer tweet says it all the course hi Ian Bremmer who your listeners knows one of the the great authorities on international affairs has these Eurasia group and the Ian Bremmer tweet the NBA offers a formal statement how telling to China and Hong Kong and just making sure what's yours no chronology the Houston Rockets general manager tweeted out support for the demonstrators in Hong Kong the Houston Rockets owner tweeted out he doesn't speak for the Houston Rockets our manager and then this formal a statement and then the port general manager and put out his hostage note tweet but even Bremer says I'm disgusted if you care about democracy freedom and American values let the NBA know how you feel and I don't know that that fans will understand the significance of this but here I want to return my central point when the NBA collapsed they suggested that China that if they use violence Americans will not object they are that could not be further from the truth the NBA is overly leveraged in China many of us or not and we would not do it that way so I I really think they've done a disservice to the Hong Kong demonstrators a terrible disservice in making them more vulnerable than they were before the weekend began yeah it's a great point and sets a terrible precedent for US companies and how we're gonna respond planned yeah and then my cal and last thing from this morning's access AM I've talked it running for about a new book catching kill I'm fascinated I cannot wait to read it I believe it will be provocative and have news stories and I have not seen it yet and I hadn't seen the cover until I got my actually O.

"Supreme court having won numerous high profile cases of late, and they played a role in over fifty victories advise court. They are back at it. Again, this time arguing a case that will have profound impact on businesses, especially those run by Christian. I spoke with eighty f attorney Kristen Wagoner on the Hugh Hewitt Show Christian Wagoner now, let's turn to something. The court did on April the twenty second it announced it will review three cases. Next term that address whether it is nation on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity violate the Civil Rights Act of nineteen sixty four I expect ADF to be involved in any or all of these cases. Well, the hair senior homes case is our case we represent Harris senior homes, and they issue in the case is, you know, congress pass title seven nineteen sixty four which prohibits sex discrimination. And the lower court is suggesting that sex side and includes gender identity. How could the nineteen sixty four act have anything to do with sexual orientation that I think precedes stonewall? I mean, it's not on anyone's mind in nineteen sixty four. Now, and it wasn't. And I think you know, sexist objective is based on biology gender identity is a fluid subjective. Content concept, and we have to be able to say that business owners can rely on the laws that are in place and not expect to judge to change those laws based on political ideology. And so yes, I think it's a simple question, but the issue in our society, and in the public square is more complex than his, you know, congress is considering changing the law now, which if you include gender identity in in these types of laws, they will be all kinds of negative consequences, especially for women and children and the rights that women have gained in public square. But if congress chose to do that that would not mean that would mean it was not a constitutional issue. But a statutory issue. I'm more concerned with courts reaching into old statutes and inventing new rights because there is no there is no stopping that. Kind of judicial activism as opposed to negative judicial activism putting genie's back into bottles. When you let genie out of bottles. They go everywhere. You're absolutely right. Federal court should not be able to rewrite statue. It's just it's not their role. And if congress wants to change the law, it has the authority to do that in this particular case changing the law would recreate consequences. I think for our society that many people aren't aware.
