Jenna Ellis: The Power of the Trump Endorsement
"I have three takeaways and I want to get your thoughts on each one My first takeaway from last night The power of the Trump endorsements profound He doesn't win them all I mean nobody does It's not be ridiculous Nobody's going to win The way the radio endorsements people No one's going to win them all But he's percentage is ridiculously high But there are a lot of candidates who don't get his endorsement Kemp last night Nancy mace congresswoman who I'm candidly not a huge fan of It's not personal It's just their politics She seems like a very nice lady But that was not the Trump chosen candidate Katie Harrington down there And Nancy mace one And I think the lesson your thoughts on this is that you can run this kind of a non Trump candidate but you can't run against them Once you run against them like Tom rice did in South Carolina this whole Trump sucks thing That's it It's over Johnny Yeah I completely agree And Trump is the ultra maga kingmaker and his endorsements are incredibly solid And when you look at what happened in Pennsylvania with Doug master and I was leading by 20 points and then ended up with close to 45% of the vote in Pennsylvania when the establishment GOP was trying to coalesce against him at the last minute And that's just not going to happen And so I agree with you that president Trump is very strategic in his endorsements and there are reasons that he's not endorsing people like Kemp who of course he rightly hates for what's gone on in Georgia But so he's being strategic about them but the ones that he doesn't endorse that ultimately do win I think are for reasons beyond just his endorsement And that's not a takeaway that you can run against Trump and be successful
Jenna Ellis: What Does Liz Cheney's Future Entail?
"You know Republicans aren't the solution to all your problems right I'm a conservative first But the Democrats are the cause So given those two options listen I don't care who you voted for before We got to take the country back And we may have to accept that you know 80% of what we want to come back for the other 20 laters Reagan said But I think that's an important takeaway that candidates even like Kemp who I mean let's be honest I don't think there's a candidate in the country Donald Trump couldn't stand more You know Brian Kemp did some conservative stuff and he came out after he lost the endorsement which obviously wasn't going to happen And he never ran against Trump though Jenna He said listen the guy doesn't like me but I don't feel the same way about him We're going to do some conservative stuff And I hope later on you know whatever He joins the team And that was it And he skated pretty good So that's kind of a critical lesson moving forward that the grip Donald Trump has on the Republican Party is going to be here for a long time People respect what he did But again like Tom rice who voted to impeach him If you're going to come out as an explicitly anti Trump guy or woman that's it man It's like stick a fork It Liz Cheney Look at Liz Cheney and I'm looking forward to her losing by 40 points And she and then kinzinger just put in the towel and said hey I don't even want to try to run You almost made me spit out my water I took a sip of water people Emma spitted all of it Yeah I think you're right Sorry to me but I know Liz Cheney's I think she's gonna get
The Targeting of Trump Lawyers for Perpetrating the' Big Lie'
"And back with my friend, fellow Salem podcaster, constitutional lawyer, Jenna Ellis, Jenna. Let's talk about this campaign on the part of the left, building on their big lie, to go after Trump attorneys like you and act like your representation of Trump or the Trump campaign. Somehow constitutes a fundamental abrogation of your legal duty. Talk about walk us through what's happening who's doing it and the implications of it. Yeah, it's a purely partisan theatrics and it's a partisan narrative by the Democrats to specifically target any attorneys. There are about a 110 of us that these Democrat operatives have targeted to try to disbar lawyers for simply representing zealously our client, including the Trump campaign and Donald Trump himself. And what they're trying to do is take away not only our livelihood, but so reinforce to the American public that if you stand up for truth and you have an interest in actually doing your job as a lawyer, then we are going to make sure to come after you so that everyone is intimidated and won't actually stand up and defend anyone like Donald Trump in the future. And it's so absurd dinesh because the first responsibility of attorneys is to have zealous representation of your plan. I don't care if your name is Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton in America, you can hire a lawyer to represent an advocate on your
Former Trump Attorney Jenna Ellis on Pennsylvania's Doug Mastriano
"Guys, I'm really happy to welcome to the podcast. My friend, fellow, Salem, podcast host, constitutional law attorney, host of the Janet Ellis show, special counsel at the Thomas more society and former senior legal adviser and counsel to president Donald J Trump. Jenna Ellis, Jenna, great to have you. Thanks for joining me. Let's start by talking about mastery ano. This is Douglas mastery Anna, who kind of pulled off what is it fair to say an upset victory in Pennsylvania? Talk about your role and participation in this remarkable development. Yeah, thanks so much, my friend for having me and I was with the mushroom campaign the last night to celebrate this victory party and it's been an amazing grassroots movement that has spread like wildfire throughout Pennsylvania because Doug mashed around truly understands as a citizen first. What pennsylvanians and broader Americans care about, which is primarily to protect and preserve our rights and also to protect and preserve election integrity. And so yeah, it was a huge landslide victory. He won by almost 45% of the vote. And I told him 45 is a great number, because president Trump, of course, endorsed him. And so he won with a wider percentage of the vote than the second and third place candidates combined. So what this says to me is that people are waking up across America and we want to put into positions in federal office state and local leaders who actually understand what America is all about and are willing to ask questions about election integrity are willing to ask questions about government and won't shy away when they're called terms and derivative terms like insurrectionist and election denier. They don't care. A Doug mushroom doesn't care. I don't care. He will stand up and fight for liberty and so
Sean Feucht and Eric Discuss the Dangers of Being 'Neutral'
"This weekend, I'm going to be in your state speaking in Mike McClure's church in San Jose. He has been a hero with a handful of California pastors and I want to be around those people. I don't want to be around somebody who is concerned with it. I want to be cool and relevant and I think you're right that we've run out of there's no neutral at this point. If people are putting things out as satanic as what Disney is putting out as satanic as what the California legislature is putting out, I don't understand how anybody thinks it's okay to say, well, I'm not going to I'm not going to take a position on that. Okay, how about burning Jews? How about the Holocaust? Are you willing to take a position on that? What are you willing to take a position on? Do you have any values? Anything? Yeah. And the hard part, like my heart behind the letter Eric is that the boldest, most courageous fighters that we see right now are politicians. And it's never good when the church follows politicians. This is the problem. Like desantis shouldn't be the one raging the hardest against Disney. It should be spiritual leaders. It should be fathers and mothers across America that have platforms that rise up. Like, but we're abdicating our authority as the church to politicians and it never works out good. So that's why I'm saying this is the hour for leaders across the body of Christ to rise up.
Sean Feucht on California's Latest Attempt to Legalize Infanticide
Sean Feucht: Believers Are Being Shunned, Censored and Persecuted
"You wrote a letter an open letter to church leaders. It's as believers are being shunned, censored, and persecuted for their beliefs. And you get into some of what you were just talking about. And you and I have talked a little bit. I have a book coming out, probably not until September called letter to the American church. And in its own way, it is exactly about what you just said. Something happened in the American church where we decided, we don't want to be political. And you think political, what do you mean political? If something horrible is happening and your lives are being affected, your neighbors are being affected. The poor are being affected. Everyone's being affected. And you're going to keep your mouth shut. What is wrong with you? What kind of fake gospel are you preaching that you're afraid to speak up on these issues? That to me is the heart of what you have in your open letter to church leaders. That we don't have the right to pretend that we could just be in our little religious corner. There's a battle being waged in our culture. And if the church doesn't speak, why wouldn't we speak? I guess that's the question. Yeah, I mean, you fight for the things that you love, you know? And I deeply love the church. I've grown up in it my whole life. My parents are pastors and full-time missionaries. And we have to fight right now to awaken the bride to remember who she is to remember what she's called to. This is not a nice Christian club. Jesus said on this rocko build my church, my ecclesia ruling body government and the gates of hell will not prevail. Right now, you have the infanticide Bill in California, which wants to allow the killing of a child up until they're 28 days
Jenna Ellis: 'It's a Great Day for Free Speech'
"Yesterday, Elon Musk bought Twitter. That sounds like a joke. It's like a Babylon bee headline. Elon Musk zillionaire bought Twitter for 67 gazillion dollars. Do you have any thoughts on that today the day after this happened? Because I find myself feeling generally like, hey, that's a great thing. But there's a I just have a lot of questions about it. I just wondered if you had any ideas about it. Oh, it's a great day for free speech, and it is absolutely a great thing. And I think ironically, you mentioned Babylon B and that seemed to be the catalyst when the Babylon be the satire site was suspended on Twitter. Elon Musk, of course, had done that interview with about one B loves all of their work and started talking to Seth Dillon, who's the CEO. And actually had a conversation with him saying, should I offer to buy Twitter? I mean, this is ridiculous. And so what the left is melting down over in people who are so concerned that somehow billionaire Elon Musk is owning Twitter when they didn't really care that Jack Dorsey was running Twitter, then what they're concerned about is that Elon Musk has openly said that he is a free speech absolutist and that he hopes that people who disagree with him will stay on the platform because that's what free speech means. So I think this is a watershed moment in American history because we have not only the government that's forbidden by the constitution to infringe on constitutionally protected speech and free speech. But we've seen that the tech oligarchs have gotten around that and private companies have censored public forums and with Elon Musk saying I'm going to buy one of the top 5 platforms V top platform for political speech. This is going to revolutionize what we can actually discuss and debate
Jenna Ellis: Disney's Right to Freedom of Speech Without Retaliation
"Think a lot of the reasons that Friends of mine and you're my friend too that's why I value your opinion Have an objection to your stance on it is why would you err in a clearly an opinion based matter to be litigated on the side of Disney saying well this was retaliation knowing Florida could have done it just a few months later anyway right Why would we give them that benefit of the doubt when no such benefits have ever been given to us I mean I think about ESG scoring how that's a way right now for the government through the SEC to silence the free speech rights of Exxon Now I know you'll say well we should defend Exxon too Yeah but we're not That's the point So that opens up I got about a minute left but that goes back to my original point It's not a constitution if only one side has to follow it And that's exactly my point is that it's not a constitutional protected right in practice if only one side has to follow it So my point is that Disney has a right to exercise freedom of speech and opposed litigation without retaliation That is my point Now whether or not they can prove in court that Florida did retaliate I think it's a pretty clear case but that's the litigation question The distinction here is that people are saying they don't have a right to exercise their free speech and toward a should retaliate for that speech What I'm suggesting I'm not saying that they can't litigate over it You can litigate over anything What I'm saying is that Disney like everybody else has a right to exercise free speech without government retaliation That is very clear in the constitution Be great if we had that right too That'd be pretty spectacular Well listen And
Jenna Ellis: The Case Disney Would Have to Build Against Florida
"Have wait wait hold on You can't have it both ways though You can't say like yeah Constitution that there is a constitutional right to this And then I say okay well you're citing retaliation You're conflating a couple things The right here that we agree there is a constitutionally protected right to free speech Correct Yes that is correct By individuals But individuals are treated corporations are treated as individuals for purposes of having rights That's true This is unite Right Copy So the constitutionally protected right is free speech The question is as a matter of proof is the retaliation is it retaliation For exercising a constitutionally protected right The constitutionally protected right here is not the special district The question is did Florida retaliate by removing the special district in retaliation for the freedom of speech that Disney exercise in opposing the Florida litigation That's a matter of proof at trial to say Disney made these statements that's protected speech then Florida took away the special district in retaliation And Disney would as the plaintiff in that case would have to prove that it was in part motivated by retaliation
Jenna Ellis: Was Removing Disney's Status a Wrong Form of Retaliation?
"In other words you're right You're not incorrect that when you're citing is in the constitution You are correct But that's an interpretation of what you believe to be retaliation In other words yeah and I know I can already I can already predict you're going to say well a lot of lawmakers said that this was in response to Disney that this was in response to what they said to Disney Okay some of them may have said that But it is in fact a special privilege bestowed upon Disney and a lot of people objected to that Matter of fact it was an op-ed in The Wall Street Journal of all They're not even like hard right They're like center right if not down the center Even they were like wait this isn't some constitutional right to have a special protected district at all That's true So I don't even feel like that's an interpretation of what you think is retaliation where a lot of people would say well we just object to these things existing at all And if Disney wants to enter the political fray they open themselves up I'm sorry go ahead And I understand because those are two issues If we were talking completely separately about whether or not Disney should have this special benefit that's an entirely valid conversation and nobody saying that or at least nobody who's a lawyer is saying that Disney has a constitutionally protected right to a special benefit Nobody is arguing that I'm not arguing that And what I am arguing is that Disney Florida can not take away a benefit in retaliation for exercising constitutionally protected speech The issue and the right that's being infringed is the political speech of the corporation That's the substantive issue Now whether or not it is retaliation that is the question that can be litigated over because certainly Florida could say no this isn't in retaliation Sure Yeah that's my point But that's not a constitutional question That is a proof question
Jenna Ellis: Analyzing the 14th Amendment & Disney's Special Status
"Now here's my problem Jenna with this You know the constitution is not a suggestion You know you being a lawyer you're obviously intimately familiar with that It was never meant to be a suggestion It was meant to be a binding document You know largely a document of negative liberties right The Bill of Rights states with the government can't do right But what it doesn't say in the Bill of Rights anywhere is that state governments are at any point duly elected state governments prevented from revoking special rights they've given to people that clearly people in Florida if you pull the guy and they can always vote him out At this point many of them like me just don't agree with it That's not in so this isn't an attack on the constitution There's nothing in the constitution Again a document of largely negative liberties right There's nothing in there that says that That's not true So I'm going to push back on that because the Fourteenth Amendment actually has an incorporation doctor in that now requires the state to also have and protect the same right that if Congress can't infringe on it the states can't either And there's also law that has been duly passed an authorized that says that the Civil Rights Act suggests an intersection 1983 that if a government does an action that would have been otherwise lawful for any other reason but the motivation is at least in part retaliation against the exercise of the constitutionally protected rights whether that is federal or state government That is illegal and unconstitutional And so because we have the Fourteenth Amendment which is of course the reconstruction era all of that the incorporation doctrine requires that the state's protect the very same rights of the First Amendment as much as the federal
Jenna Ellis: The Misconception of the Right's 'Winning at All Cost'
"I opened up the beginning of the show saying you know you as a lawyer the irony of this right That we've been a country that is so respected and maybe it'll segue nicely into the next topic the value of free speech up until about a decade ago where the left made this dramatic turn At least publicly behind the scenes they were always censorship road by publicly now they're openly advocating for free speech to the point now where a conservative's biggest fear is anybody not being allowed to speak anyone conservators or liberals but liberals biggest fear is anyone they don't agree with being allowed to speak at all It's created kind of a really really strange situation here where there's so obviously right in the wrong and yet it's hard to coax independence into our side and I can't figure out why they are so obviously for censorship How are we missing something here and the messaging Yeah you know what's so interesting is that because of the four years of Trump saying we got to win and never get sick of winning It's like we have this now myopic focus on the right that we have to just win at all costs And that somehow being principled is part of a boomer era and an antiquated constitution that we're actually and I don't blame this fully on president Trump but at all But the whole idea that somehow the manga based is only concerned with winning at all costs is fundamentally antithetical to the principles that created this country And so what people don't realize is that when they are so tribalistic and they say if you disagree with what we as a group are saying is the right move and winning and you actually say you know what I'm going to defend a viewpoint that I viscerally disagree with And by the way I disagree with Disney stance a 100% I just agree with their right to speak an opinion and combat and oppose legislation like everybody else without government retaliation But because the right is so opposed to the content of the speech they now want to throw away my entire history and track record and support and defense of president Trump and election integrity and all of these constitutional principles Over one issue that they disagree with And that can't be the standard and that should never be the standard because when government starts making retaliatory actions based on the content of speech that is fundamentally against everything that makes America great
Jenna Ellis: Brian Stelter Is Concerned Twitter Allows Disagreements
"Thing I want to get your thoughts on the topic du jour here Elon Musk I'd be remiss if I didn't get your thoughts on this I want to just play for you a quick cut Here's Brian stelter from CNN's unreliable sources Hilariously melting down claiming that a guy who literally send people into space and invented one of the world's largest car companies will not be able to figure out content moderation at least not as well as Brian stelter So listen to this I'll get your thoughts on the other side Check this out He's all about freedom of speech The question is how do you balance that with regulating hate speech and misinformation About to experience an extraordinary education in the complexities of that very topic Elon Musk has pursued this People thought might be just Biden as a plaything didn't how serious he was Now he's obviously very serious He's committed his capital to it He wants to build this business But I don't think he has based on his public statements It's clear he has a very little understanding of the complexities that go into content moderation and hate speech policies and the like So he's about to learn how it works And it might be a whole lot more complicated than he realizes Yeah yeah Brian stelter I mean your thoughts on that hilarity Oh my gosh So Elon Musk can literally send people to space but he can't figure out an algorithm Yeah But they're so concerned Dan about content moderation and misinformation and what they really mean is that they're so concerned that views Brian filter disagree with will be allowed on Twitter That's all he's
Jenna Ellis: Power Is the Disgusting Underbelly of Washington D.C.
"It's the same principle that there's this thing called power. And power when you make an idol of power, it is the enemy of truth and it blinds people so dramatically that they effectively make themselves look like fools. You can see who's guilty. Yeah, and that's the disgusting underbelly of Washington D.C. and power is such a dangerous thing that when in the hands of people who crave it, it becomes their God and it becomes everything that they want and desire and that they refuse to give up. And here in America, our founders brilliantly said, we want a nation that's of the people by the people for the people no one is entitled to power no titles of nobility, no inheritance of power. And that's what the Democrat elitists and even the RNC for the people that they want to designate. They don't want to go with that self evident truth and the structure of the constitution in our founding documents because they want to be entitled to power and they don't want to give it up. And that becomes not only very dangerous, but that leads to all of the corruption that you're saying. And
Jenna Ellis: Living out What You've Learned in Bible Study
"You have to live out your faith. There comes a time when you get, it's a privilege. You get to live it out. You know, people go to these Bible studies and you think, who cares? When the moment comes, are you going to live out what you learned in the Bible study? Because if not, I wouldn't waste my time in the Bible study. It's almost like learning to your own destruction, skip it, because you're now responsible for what you learned. And if you don't live it out, you're genuinely guilty. You can't plead ignorance. Right, and it's like almost like going to college to learn any other type of vocation where you then learn how to be like, I went to law school to learn how to practice law. And if I never practiced one, I just ignored and said, well, it doesn't matter what they train me in law school. I'm going to do this because it feels better. I'm too worried about offending the judge or something. Then I'm not actually practicing law. Well, in the same way you have to exercise your faith. And when we were talking about the founders and how people would say, you know, they were so they rebelled against England. No, they had the attitude of the tyrant is rebelling against God. Therefore we stand with the truth and the supreme judge of the universe and maybe we'll have temporary punishment because of the enforcement power of the state. But the difference between rebellion and submission is not only an attitude, but you can't submit truly in the biblical context, you can not submit to an illegitimate authority. And you can not rebel against an illegitimate authority. And so when we talk about submission to the lord, when we talk about that in the context of what John mcarthur was doing, he wasn't rebelling. He was submitting to the legitimate authority that Newsom in the state of California had to their peril or reject it. And thankfully, God brought him through that, we won a significant victory.
Jenna Ellis: When You Follow the Lord, You Stand in Truth
"To me is that in the middle, there were 12,000 pastors who said, you know what? I'm going to sit this one out. I'm not going to take a stand. I'm not going to, I don't want to get in trouble. Let's let those 3000 confessing church passes. Let them take the heat. I'm going to sit over here. Sounds like a lot of the pastors are in COVID. Isn't it amazing? And it's so sad. And they missed out on a blessing for that. Because when you follow the lord and you stand up for the truth, even in the midst of persecution, prosecution, losses, other things, you know that you're standing in truth and there is no greater blessing. And one of the things Eric that, you know, you and I have known each other for probably like 6 years or so. And so for people, I love coming on your show because we're actually Friends, really good friends offline. This isn't just a hey, let's do a guest spot like some of the other shows. And what a lot of people don't see about people like you and me. And what I get a lot where people say, well, of course you're willing to stand for truth. Look at you have almost a million followers on Twitter. You have all this. You have this. And I said, what you're not seeing are the struggles, the suffering and the difficulties that not only pervaded my life to even to this point, but still do. I mean, they don't see the types of things that are the real genuine Gritty rubber meets the road about serving the lord. And what I so appreciate about your friendship and for all of your listeners, you're listening to Eric because he's so authentic. And you have been a truly authentic friend to me and to so many to some of our group and you and a couple of the other guys I say are my big brothers because you truly invest in my life as a person in my spiritual life and everybody needs that. And so
Jenna Ellis: Representing Pastor John MacArthur
"Sun in America. It's very similar. You've got a lot of passage that said, well, I don't want to take on the government or I don't want to be, I don't want to appear like I'm some right wing Trump supporter. So I'm just going to go with the program. And yet there are these handful of folks. You represented legally the great pastor John Macarthur. And one, the same thing with che on and rob McCoy and so many of these pastors that I have gotten to know that they said we are going to stand and I think, wow. And the incredible thing about pastor John and I have loved getting to know him personally, of course, he influenced my life from early. I grew up on his study Bible. My mom graduated from his master's college with her degree. I know that. Wow. So we're a John mcarthur family. So of course, you know, and I listened to grace to you all of that. And that's actually how I ended up representing him, was an elder from their church, saw my tweet and support of their statement. And I said, can you imagine, we've gotten to the point in America where John Macarthur is going to exercise civil disobedience. This is a big day, you guys. Actually, that's really funny. If people don't know the background is that you wouldn't expect him to do that. No, because if you know how much he loves and respects, civil society, how much he understands all of this. He's not a rebellious person. But he is more than anything. Steadfast in his commitment to doing what the lord has him to do. And what he commands in scripture, which is to open your church to be the ecclesia and the gathering of believers. And so when they put out that statement, you know, I tweeted support. They saw that and said, you know, we're looking for a lawyer and I got on the phone with him and I say this is amazing to speak with you and of course this is wrong and here's why and they flew me out to the church that
"ellis g." Discussed on The Eric Metaxas Show
"It supports not just Michael lindell but it supports this show. And we appreciate that. Jenna Ellis is my guest will be right back at the here at the Eric with taxes show. Well, the sea hello folks, it's all been saved or I'm sitting in for Eric metaxas. I'm going to be finishing up here with Jenna Ellis, here in just a moment. And stay tuned for hour two. We start off with an ask Mexico Eric himself in the TBN studios with me. We answer where he answers some very intriguing questions sent in by you, the listener. So Jenna Ellis, finishing up this hour of the Eric metastic taxes show, where should we go from here, vaccines maybe? Yeah, well, you know, speaking of my body, my choice what's so interesting as well about the left is that they can't even rationally take one truth and apply it and analyze it to any other issue. And so when they are telling conservatives, well, you know, it's so interesting that you're all pro choice over here. We're saying that we're rationally consistent because the vaccine is all about personal healthcare. Now, I'm not anti vaccine at all. I am anti mandate. The government has no business telling me what to put in my body and how to make actual genuine healthcare decisions. And so everyone has to look at the risks and weigh the consequences of getting vaccinated unvaccinated. There are some people who they have determined based on their own comorbidities, their own, their agent, all different things, they would rather have the risk of taking a vaccine than not. That is totally fine in there because that's their decision. And that's their healthcare decision. This is genuinely healthcare issue. Then there are some people who they're young, maybe they've had COVID they've recovered, and they say, you know what? The risks of taking an unknown vaccine in consultation with my doctor, I'm not going to do that. We've seen a lot of sports players who are saying that. The bottom line is that there is no power that is given to the federal government or to the state to compel an individual and forcibly inject them with a foreign substance against their will and say we are going to coerce companies that they have to comply with this. Otherwise you're going to lose your job. You're going to lose your freedom. You can't go out to eat. You can't stay in a hotel. This is not America. And the problem with this is that even if you think the vaccine is great at everyone has to be vaccinated. If we allow the government to set up the precedent that they can do this under the auspices of health and safety and make those determinations for every individual regardless of circumstances, what other issue that can government not forcibly compel for the individual override their freedom and liberty in the name of so called health and safety. Yeah, and I think that's really what it's all about. You know, the thing that gets me is about young women who have childbearing age, okay? Taking this. When I was a captain on the western cruise at Cedar point in the mid 70s, there was a beautiful woman I really liked and she had only part of an arm because she was what was called a thalidomide baby. They gave the drug, women took it, it was supposed to help them with their pregnancies, et cetera, and they gave birth to babies that were missing limbs. And it could be this kind of thing because we don't know what the effects will be on an unborn child or on a woman's body, let alone a man's body, but when you're young and you want to start a family and you're taking a drug, you have no idea what it's going to do. I don't know. You should at least be allowed to make that decision yourself, right? Absolutely. Absolutely. And actually, federal law talks about informed consent and when we're just using this particular vaccine as an emergency use authorization, that federal law specifically says that individuals who participate have to do so by informed consent meaning that they have to voluntarily knowingly intelligently. I mean, that's kind of a different legal standard, but basically that they have to do so completely voluntarily assessing the risks and being able to say no without any other punishment or any other harm from the government by refusing. So this is going against all established law. Yeah, it sure is. And Janet Ellis, we are out of time. What a great discussion. Yeah, stay tuned, folks for our two and ask me, taxes and another encore guest. We've had a lot of fun today and I hope you will stay tuned right after the newsbreak for more of the Eric metaxas show. I'm Albert sadar, signing off..
"ellis g." Discussed on The Eric Metaxas Show
"Folks welcome back to the Eric metaxas show, I know. I don't sound like Derek at all. That's because I'm not I'm elbow sadar, one of his two producers sitting in for him today, and I certainly have had the privilege talking with Jenna Ellis, and she's still with me for another couple of segments. And we're going to move on to another subject, and this is I'm just going to say one word dobs and Jenna take it from there. Yes, so December 1st, the Supreme Court is actually going to address what will be the most important abortion related case. I think since 1973, it certainly sense Planned Parenthood versus Casey. And so I think the world is poised watching this case to see whether or not they're truly and genuinely as a conservative majority on the court. And this particular case is determining the question of whether all pre viability abortions are constitutional. And so what that means is that the court is looking, is going to address the question. Really, hopefully, where does life begin? How much can the government put in place parameters to protect life and restrict abortions in the states? And the easiest way that the Supreme Court could protect life could undermine roe versus wade is just to acknowledge federalism that of course the states have the ability to make their own law on restricting abortion. That's something that clearly the federal government has no ability to tell the states what to do. This was in the original row case they manufacture the so called right to privacy that covered some abortions in some circumstances. And they waited balancing test really between the government's compelling interest to protect the life of unborn children versus a woman so called right to privacy in interestingly healthcare decision making, right? So where is that same right to privacy when we're talking about vaccines? Well, nobody wants to talk about that. That's why this is such an interesting contrast when we're talking about the leftist terminology of my body, my choice. Well, when does that happen when it comes to actual healthcare decision making? We all know that abortion isn't healthcare. It's a specific medical intervention that is designed to terminate the life of an unborn child. So this is going to have far reaching consequences. I hope that the Supreme Court won't just do the easy thing. And acknowledge federalism and kick this back to the states. I hope they are very clear that with the medical technology we have today following the science that we know that these are human beings and that life begins at conception and that they will find that the government does have a compelling interest in preserving and protecting the life of the unborn child. And Alvin, I want to say one other thing, there are two really important myths that we as conservatives have to destroy from leftist talking points. The first one is there is no constitutional right to abortion. Even the row case didn't stand for that proposition. That's absolutely just a leftist talking point. And the second one we have to make sure that we dispel the myth that women are the only ones that can talk about abortion. This is a moral issue. And I think it's so interesting that when Jen Psaki pushed back against Peter, do you see the reporter and said, well, you don't have any experience on this. You're just a man. Well, if we go by her line of thought, guess what 7 meant decided roe versus waves. So just on that basis, if we're consistent with what Jen Psaki saying, they didn't get to weigh on this either. Yeah, that's very interesting point. I know back in 1973, that was the beginning of me going from being a liberal to being a conservative. I didn't know that that was the moment that changed began, but I said, it's obvious it's a life. You know, why are you debating this? The reason why you want to end this thing is because it's a life. It's not like, oh, just say whether it's life or not. We don't know. Just get rid of it and move on. And I was like, but it's obviously a life. You can make decisions, but don't start that issue. That's the issue. And you'll be intellectually honest. And then have that conversation and say, we don't care. We don't think that these lives are valuable. If the leftists were even willing to acknowledge that, then we could have a rational debate because then they would at least be logically consistent with their own propaganda. When they're not even willing to recognize that and they're just saying it's a clump of cells, everyone knows differently. They know differently. They just don't want to admit it. Well, the thing is about the left. They never give anything. It's like the wall in my room here. I'll be standing at one end of the room and they'll say, well, meet me halfway. So I'll move halfway in and don't be the wall. We'll still stay there. Hey, meet me halfway a couple years later. I meet him a halfway. Pretty soon I'm with the wall. And that's what's happened in this country. The wall hasn't moved the left has never even used the phrase. I misspoke. They never misspeak. They are always on offense. We're always on defense, and that's why we're where we are today because we're not standing up and saying enough is enough. We're not taking it anymore. Like, you know, this is mass madness you maniacs from like twin brothers favorite movie network. This is mass madness, you maniacs. It's time to step up. Absolutely. And that's where conservatives, frankly, are strategically coalescing because the left is all about incrementalism and saying, hey, just meet me halfway, just make me halfway. And they're willing to do this with an agenda that's been over the last 50 and 60 years. Conservatives want it all the way. I mean, I've even seen conservatives in my home state of Colorado. Oh, we don't want to have a heartbeat bill because that doesn't go far enough. We have to make sure that no abortions are legal from the moment of conception. Well, that would be great. But if we can at least get a heartbeat bill and have better to save 95% than not, I mean, right now, in the state of Colorado, you can abort your child up to the moment of birth. So if we had a heartbeat bill and we saved all of the children from even 5 weeks on, that to me would be a win. But conservatives have to look at this more strategically. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, it's a horror and all the way up to the moment of birth. But in some cases even beyond, I believe, I had heard when Barack Obama was running the first time, I had heard that he was for live birth abortion. I just had heard that. It wasn't sure if that was correct, but because I said, this can not be. But here we are. And what on the left, of course, I mean, remember when president Clinton used to say safe legal and rare, we've gone from safe legal and rare to state funded abortion on demand. And that has been just within the last 20 years. And that's where the left will continue to say to move the goalposts and they will push their propaganda regardless of whether or not it's even rational or logically consistent. Yeah. And again, this is the whole my body my choice. We talked a little bit and maybe we can finish up in the next segment about the vaccine mandate. You must, you must put this in your body. You must, you must, to protect everyone. We'll see about that. Jenna Ellis is my guest right now. Don't forget to go to my pillow and my store dot com and use the code Eric..

"Am Alton sadar, one of two producers of the show, and I'm sitting in for Eric today. And of course, my guest is the lovely Jenna Ellis and it looks like she's somewhere in Italy, I think I mentioned before. But then she straightened me out and told me this whole wonderful story about Disney World. So back to Jenna Ellis at Disney World. It's always great to have the background of the Disney Rivera. I mean, what a wonderful way to wake up and be here in Florida. I mean, my hair is definitely much more curly in Florida than it is anywhere else, but that's the only thing that you have to deal with. That's happened to me too, I curly her hair when I'm in full you feel me, yep, totally. So we were talking about the cow written house trial. And so we might as well continue on with that strain of thought. Yeah, so we're still at this point we mentioned we are recording this show. So as of now, the verdict has not been reached. But I also want to talk about just generally, the role in responsibility of a prosecutor because what I found really fascinating Alban about this case was how the prosecution clearly lost control of the trial. They were not expecting the witnesses that they called to testify actually in really in defense of Kyle's self defense affirmative defense here. And so I think that even though the prosecution sometimes, I don't know how much background they did, how much they prepared for this trial, but it seemed that they were frustrated with their own witnesses. Yeah, it seemed like they were surprised that they actually told the truth on the story. Right, which, you know, which is really unfortunate for a prosecutor because let's remember that in our adversarial system when it comes to criminal justice. This is not let's say me suing you Alban. And so, you know, I have an interest. You have an interest. And we both have private counsel in court. That's not what happens in the criminal justice courtroom. What happens is that the state is prosecuting Kyle rittenhouse. And so the state has to continue on with the interests of justice and do whatsoever justice requires. That's actually the higher calling and the ethical role in responsibility of a prosecutor. And so here, when the prosecutor is basically making a lot of these arguments trying to justify and make these alleged victims into angelic figures, the prosecutor to me went over the line between advocating just for justice going where the facts lead making the best case that he can to actually becoming defense counsel for the alleged victims. And that's where I think he watched the jury. Because the jury knows the truth and the jury is seeing the state prosecuting Kyle and understands that the role and responsibility of justice in this context is to do whatsoever justice requires not to become defense counsel for the alleged victims. So I think that the prosecutor in my opinion stepped over the line a couple of times ethically. And that's in part when it comes to some of the evidence that they didn't provide the high quality to the defense that came out yesterday and some of the arguments. The judge is taking this very seriously and right now is contemplating whether or not to dismiss the charges for a mistrial. And if he does that with prejudice, that's the legal term meaning then the prosecutor is just done. They can't refile the charges against Kyle. You know, it almost seems like the better thing here because I have the feeling and I think it's almost obvious that of the 12 jurors, at least several of them have great fear for their own lives and for what's going to happen to their city if they outright acquittal because if the facts were very clear and it seems to be for us, but of course, we're on the side of righteousness and justice here. It seems to us that this might not have even come as far as a court case if they would have looked at the clear evidence that we're in all the videotapes of what actually happened that day. You know, not a blurry vision of what happened that day. Yeah, exactly. And that's where prosecutors also have an ethical role in responsibility of even bringing charges in good faith and being able to say in front of the court that is a matter of law. They have the ability in good faith to fulfill their burden of proof and burden of production. And here, I think that if the prosecutors were ethical and they were looking at all of the facts and evidence, even after the prosecution arrested, they should have. And I've seen prosecutors do this, just be willing to dismiss the charges already to say, you know, we didn't fulfill our burden of proof. No reasonable juror hearing the evidence could have thought that this wasn't justified as self defense. And so the role and responsibility of a prosecutor I think is what America's learning through this situation as well. Yeah. I was just surprised by some of the things the prosecutors didn't said. I mean, it just seemed like they were like, it was amateur hour with them. They were just throwing anything up at the walls like a spaghetti thing. Like, okay, let's see if anything sticks here. And unfortunately, there are people on the other side to say, wow, that's a good point. Yeah, he should have taken his beating. That's 17 year old. Should have taken a beating from those three adults who were in the 20s and 30s that have mysterious past to know who have done this kind of thing before. This kid was just there to from the get go to help clean up Kenosha. Get rid of the spray paint and all that other damage that happened before. That was what that was one of his roles when he first got there. He wasn't looking for a fight. He was looking to make peace as it were. Right. Right. And, you know, and I think also that the prosecution here was clearly not really showing that they are competent attorneys. And especially during closing arguments when they misrepresented the law on self defense and are just going so far as to basically argue that Kyle should have been willing to engage in a fistfight before he defended his life with a firearm..

"When you're drunk, welcome back, I'm talking to Jenna Ellis Jenna. What you said is that a real pandemic doesn't need a PR campaign. It seems clear to me that there's something going on that we've never seen before. And that free people generally do what's in their best interest, right? So maybe smoking is a good example. We didn't make smoking illegal, but we began to have public service announcements and stuff because you're trying to help people and then most people realize, yeah, you know, you're right. It's not good for me. But you're not going to put me in jail for smoking a cigarette. Well, this is a case where there has been so much pressure being put on people. And I think for the first time, certainly in my lifetime, Americans are learning not to trust all these voices of authority. In other words, whether it's the CDC, whether it's Fauci, whether it's the president or whoever it is, they've been keeping track. They're not stupid. Americans, they're on, you know, watching the news every day. And they say, wait a minute, that doesn't make sense. That doesn't make sense. That doesn't make sense. Why are children in playgrounds, little kids wearing masks? It's enough to drive you crazy, and it's enough to make you feel like you live in so under Soviet communism where everything's crazy and you've got to play the game, but we're going to game the system wherever we can get away with it. But we're no longer living like a free people. We're having to think more for ourselves, which in some ways is good, in some ways, it's not so good because we shouldn't all have to be experts on things. Right. I mean, everything I hear, I was just talking to somebody about this vaccine is not for the delta variant. And the delta variant is all we're really dealing with today. So why are people even bothering to get this vaccine? In other words, there's all these unanswered questions and the answer typically is shut up shut up, just do it just do it. And you will be censored if you even ask the question. Which is very dangerous. And listen, this program was knocked off of YouTube because I had Naomi wolf on here talking about vaccine passports. And I thought to myself, what could be more American than a liberal and a conservative, a Jew and a Christian, talking about freedom and America, we were completely wiped off of YouTube because of that conversation. And I thought to myself insane. This is what Americans want to hear about. This is what people want to get educated on what's going on. Why would I need a vaccine passport to go to a gym to go to a restaurant? And misinformation, that whole term of saying that somehow, the misinformation itself is dangerous. And so we need to have these orbiters of truth from the government who will synthesize information they'll analyze it and determine if we can hear it is incredibly dangerous and completely violates all of the freedoms and liberties and principles that our country was founded upon. The ability again in the First Amendment to free speech to free exercise of religion, freedom of association. It's speaking together about truth and also arguing together and deciding what we want to believe. And so part of free exercise of religion is not just the ability to go like we said in worship in the four walls of our church. But to debate amongst each other, what is the truth? What do we want to believe and to reject things that we personally may not believe in? And the government can't compel me to believe that the sky is blue. Now that may be people may say, well, Jenna, if you don't believe that, you're really stupid. You know, the earth is round. Well, you know what, there's flat earthers around there. And guess what? I think they're stupid. But they're entitled to believe that. Right? I've made this point many times on the program that in America, you're free to be wrong. In other words, this has nothing to do with right or wrong. This has to do with the fact that if I want to say vanilla is the best flavor, don't talk to me about it. In America, I can say that. People say, well, I don't know. I think chocolate is the best. In America, you can not force someone to believe anything. It's just always the way it's been. And you know what I know that the only time that changes is when those beliefs threaten lives or in other ways, harm other people. So what they're doing now with this COVID pandemic scheme is is pure fear mongering. I mean, look, we saw this blacks were demonized in the south and lynched. Jews were demonized and murdered in Germany. Whenever you can use fear to whip people up, that life is at stake. If you don't do this, people will die. Every principle goes out the window. They go, this is the case where we don't care about your principles. I don't want to die. I don't want my family to die. That's basically what Fauci and many people have done. And we have not seen it in our lives. It happened in the 50s to some extent. There was the fear of there's a nuclear bomb going to hit any minute. That was at least more real of a threat. There was the fear of communists in every part of the game. That was also somewhat real. But the point is we look back and we laugh at that. We mock the kids going under their desks and hiding, if there's a nuclear blast. They're going to be books written in movies made about the time in which we live about the intense fear mongering that little children in playgrounds have to wear masks while they're running around. And it's absurd. It's absurd. And you're so right that it is fear mongering and your fear doesn't then compel me to give up or suspend my constitutionally protected rights. And that's really the bottom line here and for people who have bought into this myth of a separation of church and state saying fine, you're free to worship in your church, but when it comes to being a member of civil society, you have to go along with the edicts of the state, that is missing the entire point of free exercise. Because if we look at the Bible and Hebrew's 11 and 12 and the great cloud of witnesses and it's the hall of faith chapter, faith as a definition, religion and exercise of my faith in a biblical terms, it means believing in the promises and the sufficiency of those promises have got and acting on it. Because if you only believe, and you don't act on it, that is not exercising your faith. There's a reason the founders talked about exercise of religion. And that includes being proactive and it also includes declining participation. Well, of course, that's bone hoffer's big point, right? That cheap grace is not grace. If you don't live out what you believe, maybe you don't really believe it. You probably don't, and you're not fooling God, you're not fooling the devil. And that's kind of what we're seeing a lot of today that people give lip service to things, but that they don't live it out. What we're going through now requires actual courage, which is why I want to talk to people like you on this program. I want people to understand where we are. And a big part of the problem is the ignorance of many citizens about what America is, what our liberties are. And the ignorance of the media, the ignorance of people like Terry mcauliffe, we'll get back to him. Who don't know the basics. And so we all think, well, maybe I'm not so ignorant because everybody else thinks the same thing. We're going to be in big trouble. We're going to have we're going to keep you into the second hour folks, don't go away. I'll be I forgot to mention something. I'm holding a letter. People send us letters through my website air protects dot com and through the radio website and taxes, talk to come..
"ellis g." Discussed on The Eric Metaxas Show
"My friend, Jenna, Ellis, she has a podcast with Salem radio. I can't believe it. We get all the good people. You were talking about Southwest Airlines. I want to talk a little bit about religious exemptions. I didn't mention earlier, you're a constitutional legal scholar. You understand these things far better than most of us. Why for example, and this I find bizarre. According to my friend John murak and some others, all of the vaccines were made with fetal cells or tested with fetal with fetal tissue. So you would think the whole Catholic Church would stand against this, but the Pope and many American bishops have said, no, we're fine with this. That doesn't make any sense to me. I would think that'd be the first place you can get a religious exemption if you're a Catholic. But so what is the issue with religious exemption? Right, and you would think that, but of course, the Catholic Church, and even American Protestant churches have strayed so far from what the Bible actually teaches and from standing on the eternal immutable inherent word of God. And so we as Christians need to make sure that we are always going back to the sufficiency of scripture. And with religious exemptions, we are blessed to live in a country where our founder specifically textually protected our ability to freely exercise our religion. Now, of course, like many pastors, right? Where they will go to the text of scripture, take out one or two words, and then build a whole sermon or a doctor and around it that's actually really different from what the text says. The U.S. Supreme Court has done that with the U.S. Constitution. It will take one or two words call it a clause of the constitution, and they'll build a whole doctrine around it, and it becomes something so different than what the text actually says. So in context, our First Amendment which has the free exercise clause in it and the two religion clauses basically in context when it says that the establishment clause is the other one that the government can't establish a religion, but also that we are protected and freely exercising our religion. It's not just about saying I have a right in this country to not have the government not allow me to go to church, but also that the government can not compel me to participate in any sort of event including a vaccine, by the way that goes against my sincerely held religious beliefs. And so it should just be a matter of course that if you have a conscious objection, then you can say I as a Christian as a Muslim as a Jew as any sort of religion. I mean, this covers all religions. By the way, all faiths, all sincerely held beliefs, you should be able to say I decline to be coerced into participation. But what we're seeing is that a lot of employers are not only requiring a lot of information for people to say, you know, well, you have to justify your religious exemption. We're also seeing that they want this so called what they're calling an interactive process that's basically an interrogation. I have clients right now that they have filed for a religious exemption on the basis of were pro life that's what the Bible teaches. And I can not take this vaccine. And the human resources department from the legal counsel of these employers want to sit down and basically interrogate them and say, is this really a sincerely held religious belief? And they're using this as a pretext to try to deny religious exemptions. It's absurd, and I hope that when there are more lawsuits filed just today, in Texas, United Airlines was forbidden from enforcing their vaccine mandate against employees who are claiming a religious exemption. So we're already seeing that the courts are protecting this. But hopefully it will be more than just Texas. Well, I have to say that this is a good teaching point because this is only something I've learned in the last years. But Americans really now need to understand what does the constitution say about religion. And I remember years ago, Hillary Clinton referred to freedom of worship, and I remember chuck Coleman at the time saying, wait a minute, forget about freedom of worship. It's about freedom of religion. Freedom of worship. They have in China. You go into your little weird building on Sunday morning. Do your little weird mystical stuff. And when you come out, you bow to the secular authority of the state. That's the opposite of freedom of religion. Freedom of religion says 24 7, you can exercise your faith. You can live out your faith. You can talk about your faith. You can do things with regard to your faith. You can refuse to do things with regard to your faith. That is an incredibly broad right. And we, in America, because we've been so blessed with freedom, have really just taken our eye off the ball in terms of what it is. And so when somebody says, do something you go, oh, okay, without realizing, like, wait a minute. I am free. Well, just to be clear, let's say let's speak theoretically, right? I'll be like Arthur Miller with a Harvard Law School. He used to do these round table things on PBS or something. You need to say, well, what about in this case? What if it's the Bubonic plague? It's not COVID, which where people get a cold and they inflate the numbers and make it sound like everybody's dying. Let's say tons of people are dying in the streets. That becomes a different issue. In other words, if somebody says, hey, I don't mind spreading the Bubonic plague. You'd say, well, your religious liberty doesn't extend to that because people are dying in the streets because the science actually backs this up. And you know what? A real pandemic doesn't need a very good PR campaign. If this were really really something where people are dying in the streets and people were genuinely concerned that their natural immunity or their own just regular immunity would not protect them against getting COVID and recovering, then they may choose to take the vaccine, and that is a choice. But the important point of defining as you said, free exercise of religion, not just of worship. Worship, implies that it has to be in the four doors of the church at the four walls of the church. Right. And that's where Christians have largely bought into this secular myth. Right. Of this separation of church and state. The context. Let's pick up on that because this is so important. Americans really need to understand this. We'll be right back talking to Jenna Ellis..

A religious liberties being under attacked. You've got all kinds of people, I mean, the level of ignorance of some of our elected leaders or would be elected leaders is actually staggering. They know nothing about the basics of how America works. Their high handed, they're out of touch. Let me speaking of ADF before we go on. We've got some crazy other stuff that I want to share with you, by the way, we got Jenna Ellis coming up in a couple of days. Oh, yes, yes. Jenna Ellis in the studio. Wow. With her blond hair and everything. Oh, she's a lot of times, you know, she'll wear a cap. But this time, she said to her, people want to see your hair. You've got this nice blond hair. She said, you know, I'm in. I'm in. And not only that, but I'm gonna put it on my other wig, the one that I've been getting letters about. And all right, that's enough of that. You ready? Yes. All right. So first of all, I want to thank people have already given to the ADF campaign. I want to say thank you. You went to a Texas talk dot com. Maybe you called the number. I'll give the number as well. Top business owners. Some of you have heard bare Nell stutzman. She said, I don't want to create these beautiful floral arrangements for things that I can't get behind, like same sex marriages. If you want to have a same sex marriage as a free country, do it, but I can not use my skills, my God given skills for that. She's been put through hell. And if it's not for folks like the alliance defending freedom, she wouldn't have a leg to stand on. So it's an amazing thing. The threat is real, and I think I've shared most of this already. But actually let me what you really have going on is compelled speech. I don't have time to get into that now. But Matt sharp, we've had him on. He's with ADF. We have a clip for him. Let me play the clip. Alliance defending freedom gets over 500 calls every month asking for legal assistance. And the only way that we can respond to those, the only way we can continue to defend people like barronelle stutzman or Colorado baker Jack Phillips is through donations, whether it's 50 a hundred or 200, all of those go to enable us to take these cases and fight for our freedom of religion and our freedom of speech. I'm going to give you the phone number because some people prefer phones. Here's the phone number, and I'm begging you folks. This is you're doing God's work. This helps America.
