"Are here. Brought to you by Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific mortgage for personalized loan services you can count on, go to Andrew and Todd dot com, the wonderful Andrew and Todd dot com. So Florida was an unbelievable success story. During the pandemic. By remaining open and defying federal government, pressure, Ron DeSantis, the courageous Ron DeSantis was able to keep Florida free, businesses from closing down. He was able to taper and hedge against mental health issues, depression, suicide, social isolation, alcoholism, Florida became kind of a Beacon of liberty and hope, and you see it with the real estate values around here. You see it with the new businesses that are moving here. It's almost synonymous with self government. Ron DeSantis deserves credit and Ron DeSantis has received some incredibly well earned praise for doing this. But the question is, why was he able to do it? The reason is in the structure of our government. We talk a lot about the United States Constitution here on this program. And James Madison, in the federalist papers, argued that the structure of the constitution was one of its defining elements. James Madison Alexander Hamilton and John Jay, the three authors of the federalist papers and one of the three most involved in designing our constitution, James Madison being the most involved. Why is America able to be free not because of our Bill of rights every banana republic has a Bill of rights? No, the structure of checks and balances and consent of the governed. Allows a bottom up structure, a grassroots centric way of governing. This idea of federalism, it derives power from the roots, the bottom up, not the top down. It involves citizens, not subjects or serfs. So Florida was able to make a prudent decision saying, you know, the CDC doesn't know better than we do on how to treat our citizens. The CDC and Anthony Fauci do not know what we need to do to be able to address the public health emergency. South Dakota handled it very well. Incredibly well. Utah handled it pretty well. So you look at the states that handle it pretty well, and this goes back to the structure of the United States Constitution where the states created the federal government, the federal government did not create the states. The idea that centralized power is usually wrong, it can be easily corrupted. This idea of one person being able to make a decision is an inherent threat to freedom. The founding fathers knew this all the way back in the design of the constitution 1787 and 1791. Now, as bad as our reaction as a nation and a country was, to the Chinese Fauci coronavirus, imagine how much worse it would have been. If we did not have the structure and the system to be able to have self governing decisions like Florida beautifully embodied..

"In Canada. Trudeau is basically waging war on Canadians, the very same sort of domestic war that our leaders wish they had the power to do. Let me say that again. Trudeau has more power than our leaders. They have to do all sort of kind of work around higher private firms and work with the NSA to spy on Trump. They got to do all this sort of very complex stuff to try to work around the constitution. Trudeau just does it. Our leaders have tyranny envy when it comes to Trudeau. Now there's other types of envy in psychology. I'm not going to get into that. You guys can look up some Freudian psychology to find out what kind of other envy is there. Go read a little Sigmund Freud. It doesn't take that long before he starts talking about that. But there's tyranny envy. Our leaders pound the table, they say, why is it Trudeau can just bring in the shock troops? Why can't we do that while tell you why? Because of James Madison, Alexander Hamilton and John Jay, and the 13 colonies that ratified the U.S. Constitution and added on the Virginia declaration of rights which became the Bill of Rights, that's why. There's a document that slows down government that stops them. So Trudeau is signing the emergencies act. And for those of us that study tyrants. I know that's kind of a weird thing to say. Like, yeah, I study science actually true. We do study tyrants because it's really important. The Bible actually talks a lot about tyrants and tyrannies both in the old and New Testament. And one of the things tyrants always do is they try to make it seem like the world is falling apart. If a tyrant is telling you, there is a calamity or there is a sky is falling moment, typically it's not true and it's used for a purpose. This is why climate change is such an effective political movement. The basis is that we must act now we must suspend our way of life or else, Miami's gonna go underwater. So Trudeau signs the emergencies act, which again, they love emergencies. Democrat governors love the emergencies, Mao loved emergencies, Castro loved emergencies, Stalin loved emergencies, Mussolini loved emergencies, Pol Pot, loved emergencies. The emergencies act granted cabinets, the ability to take a special temporary measure that may not be appropriate in normal times. So he just invoked that for the first time ever in order to stem the peaceful protests. The emergencies act, which replaced the war measures act in the 1980s, defines a national emergency as a temporary urgent and critical situation that seriously endangers the lives, health or safety of Canadians and is of such proportions or nature as to exceed the capacity or authority of a province to deal with. So obviously a bunch of people protesting against vaccine mandates Hawking their horns can somehow overlay with the emergency war powers act or the emergencies act. Now here's the advantage to the United States Constitution. Our president has no such equivalent the only equivalent he has, it's to sign an emergency declaration for natural disasters. But one of the biggest differences is the state based model America has. Illinois, Florida, North Carolina, Arizona, Montana, have way more sovereignty than Quebec Ontario, Prince Edward Island, Yukon, British Columbia, and Alberta, I think I almost got all of them. Almost. It's close. Far more sovereignty. So the federal government can be pushed back against. Now, in America, the states created the federal government. The federal government did not create the states. Now my Canadian history is not as sharp as it is with some of our guests, but I do not believe Canada was created by the states. I don't. I could be.

"I didn't mean this offensive but but i want you to understand what that means. Because he's from the hood. I'm supposed to agree with him without monolithic under you. Just making arguments from authority saying that. You are from the hood. But i see this is just a fact so a gentleman just because he is. It doesn't mean that. I agree with his ideology and just because he's an american black person doesn't mean i agree with his political philosophy economic philosophy. Here's the here's the point. I'm but i still. I still want to finish the point. Then i'll yeah. I don't forget the damn point all right there was something about Job workforce okay application. You art so the majority of the study show that if you put in an application you list education experience you put in ethnic sounding name. You don't get called back at least twenty percent or more drop off rate for those who haven't ethnic sounding name same applications submitted. Same company bone. Put up white sounding name on that application study after study. Show that with the same background. Same educational Information they got a call back twenty percent higher or more than the application. That was the exact same with the ethnic sounding name. Now i mean there. That debunk that a minority of studies. Seoul wrote a whole book on that. Right discrimination and disparities on. I'm not going to be your to get into the details that you know them better than i do. But i want to broaden it. We're actually could be helpful. Our viewers to kinda see where they might fall on this cup. Which i guess the question is you say yes. America's systemically racist right. Yes that means the systems and the laws reflect a desire to get outcomes different from what they were written by people that were racist like like who who wrote the constitution. They raise james. Madison was not a race. Look come home alexander and you could own black people and the right. Let's let's ask the question. Yeah so own black people. So how many states had already abolished slavery by the convention debt. Fine brother you can make. That are nine thirteen argument. They were ending slavery defending framed. The constitution thought black folks were proper. Tokyo like still can't get away from this is super important. I'm glad you brought it up. Show me one time. James madison alexander. Hamilton john jay said that in order to be a racist in your opinion or in order to be discriminatory against a group. You must say it out loud okay. So the best show printing no no. It's not so them. What about the behavior founders. Let's talk about the founders. Were anti-racist to use an uber mex- candy term. We are all born into a world we did not create. You agree right. That's right. Br so thousands of years before. Thomas jefferson walked. The george washington whitfield adams. All these guys slavery existed the mushin' should be who started the movement to stop it. The first ever anti-slavery convention was hosted in philadelphia. In seventeen seventy five chaired by benjamin franklin. Seventeen seventy six. The virginia declaration of rights was written by george mason. Which proclaimed that all men are created. Equal which heavily inspired the declaration independence. Let me finish thomas. Jefferson wrote the declaration of independence and vermont was so inspired by that. They were the first sovereign community of people to abolish slavery. Okay i'll keep on. Goin' are in the black people in the con- they weren't allowed to in vermont in the wider framers of the constitution on black. Some did some didn't wa. But why did something would be posted. Tradition predated should yeah. The tradition to a human was discussing cowhide behind tradition second. Let's first of all there's more slaves in the world than there ever have been before and there's still slavery happening on this an inexcusable. Go to finish those. You should be thanking. Thomas jefferson for saying in the consummate. Let let me let me finish. Please let me finish. Thomas jefferson signed the moratorium saying no new slaves are allowed to come into netted states as one of his first acts as president in eighteen. O seven the question should not be whether or not slavery existed. The question should be. Why was it starting to end. Okay that's the most important question but probably from fro you from your perspective but for me all of is very important. So let's talk about not only the racism of those who wrote the constitution but the sexism as well sexism. Oh absolutely brother Let's talk about names. Tell why james madison. Well we'll get to limp general right. Let me let me let me give some background to my proclamation. 'cause it may be provocative for some okay and intentionally so we call this place a democracy. You believe that no republic. We wanted a representative government right but they wanted a republic democracy. So we're not agreeing and there's listen. We're splitting hairs on that. Well yes in. Colorado mccall's public is a representative form of government. That's the definition. I agree i'll give you represented for government will not use the word democracy and that's best a distinction without a difference by the way no one one billion shrimp fried rights one has the will of the majority are so so. So let's go to. Who could vote in that republic based on their writing the constitution at at at the gratification of seventeen eighty seven. What whoever the states deemed. Okay now the question you might bring up. Is the three fifths clause right. Not only that but look why. That's not actually not when i'm bringing. Why did they put. That didn't help actually limit the power of the slave owning. I get it. That's another argument will be your all day for that. Because they wanted to limit slavery and arbitrary something brother.

"Wednesday four on the capital show. I support a woman's right to be born, not original, but true and profound. Tens of millions of females killed before birth. By abortion. Is the Supreme Court ready to strike down Roe? Let's hope so. Join me at four. I just got to come back to this thing I covered a few hours ago on the show, but it's just it's bothering me so much. You know what's bothering me more than the story is this picture and we're going to have this up on the blog, Shannon, you put in a blog together, We're going to have this up on the blog. It'll probably be up to shortly after the end of the show. Although you can probably find it yourself if you're in front of a computer if you do a search for New York Times The story is entitled 800,000. New Yorkers just lost federal unemployment benefits. So I don't know if it's right up there on the front page of the times. It's still at this point or not. It was yesterday. You can probably find it with a search, though, anyway, so The sub head of the article. Many pandemic era federal programs expired on Sunday, leaving jobless New Yorkers with more modest state unemployment benefits or no aid at all. And right under That the headline in the subhead before any of the text of the article is a picture. And the picture. Is of a 34 year old dude. Who of course, is named Travis. What else would he be named a 34 year old dude named Travis. He is sitting on the grass. In the shade of some trees. He's got his left leg slightly bent at the knee but mostly extended and his right leg bent 90 degrees at the knee going under his left black Imagine if you were kind of sitting with your legs crossed and then extended your left leg out. Be kind of like that, he said, And he's got his fingers interlocked. Out on his left knee in just a a lovely millennial pose. He's got a perfectly millennia, Lee trimmed beard and and moustache moustache. And then you know the extension of the moustache all the way down. To the beard. Um, very, very nice trim there on the facial hair. His hair on top of his head is, uh, very saltwater taffy shade of pink. And he is glaring at the camera with a look like You bastard. That's kind of the vibe I get from him. Is he staring at the camera? If you know I could imagine coming out of His mouth the words from from Chevy Chase from years ago during point counterpoint. Jane, you ignorant slut. That's the That's the look on his face, except he's not talking to Jane. He's talking to you and me, and he's not talking about being slutty. He's talking about not giving us enough of his mind. Enough of our money. 34 year old. Millennial. Travis is a freelance photographer who will lose roughly $482 per week. In free money. An air quotes from the federal government. And he says, quote To just cut people off. It's ridiculous and it's unethical and it's evil. Now to step away for a moment from the fact that this £100 overweight Pink hair, dude. Sitting on the grass. And telling me that it's unethical and evil for the government to stop giving him my money or my kids future money. Right. I mean, that whole thing is so ridiculous and says so much about America and Millennials and and The New York Times. But just to step away from just how Personally, It annoys me. And how much it causes me to fear and low the current state of this country. Let's just Get philosophical for a minute. Let's just revert. To first principles for a minute. When he says that there is Something wrong. He uses the words ridiculous, unethical and evil, but When he suggests that it is To use more neutral terminology. Improper. That's that'll Be my word. Improper to quote cut people off. And again what he's talking about. Is these the federal unemployment quote benefit. By the way, a benefit that he almost certainly wouldn't have qualified for in a normal situation because, as a freelance photographer, he is not probably playing paying into any Unemployment. System, therefore would not be entitled to collect unemployment when he isn't working. But the federal government created a program that lets independent contractors and gig workers and so on. Collect unemployment. It's it Not enforce anymore. It stopped a few days ago. But let's think about first principles. His first principle is that there is an entitlement that some Americans Have Should have must have To other people's money. Isn't that a strange first principle? And what is supposed to be a free country? What do you think? James Madison. Alexander Hamilton or George Washington. Or George Mason or Elbridge, Gerry or anybody else. You want to talk about? Actually, I think it was pronounced Gary Elbridge Gerry. What do you think our founders would have said? If somebody has said to them The federal government should go collect money from people and give it to me when I'm not working. They would have laughed at him. And I said, What are you talking about? I mean, that kind of socialism didn't exist anywhere in America at that time. You had to kind of get to Bismarck in Germany for the beginning of the modern welfare system, which, by the way is part of the reason that so many Academics are just so leftists and so supportive of the giant welfare system because the concept of a postgraduate PhD in some kind of social science came from Germany and our early PhDs in the United States of America who became the people who then founded programs at major universities to grant Ph. D s Those early people got their degrees in Germany, Americans went to Germany. To study this stuff, and at that point they were exposed to this idea. Bismarck's welfare state. And, of course, if you are an elite leftist you love the welfare, state and big government generally because you are going to be the one in charge. You are going to be the one Who gets to make the decisions for how other people live. And if you want to stay in power the way you do that is by making people like Travis believe that he is entitled to other people's money and that he should vote for you because you're going to give it to him..

You see the belief that we must live in a one world. Government is a sinister idea you see. Having local control being able to have more of a say in how you live is actually a hedge against global talibanism sovereign locally chartered nation states. Serve as a healthy barrier against that form of global to talibanism the very same that boris johnson joe biden justin trudeau and emmanuel macron. Wanna bring in so in a miracle. We know that trend is happening. We know people are moving from blue states red states thank goodness. Our founders and the greatest document political document of written the constitution united states gave us that freedom in fact the founding fathers wrote extensively about the freedom to travel as a citizen. Which is why i believe. The no fly list is an unconstitutional measure. I believe that if you are on the no fly list and you have not been indicted for a crime and you can't find out a way to get away from it. The the founding fathers wrote extensively about that freedom of movement of people different topic for a different time. But despite all of this what. If i told you that. The amount of countries in the world is increasing not decreasing it. Boris johnson can't even get northern ireland in order. How on earth can boris johnson. Get nato in order. The founding fathers were so brilliant and this is thomas jefferson even more than james madison. I gotta say thomas. Jefferson would be spending and applause right now because he would he federalist he was very keen on allowing the most form of local control imaginable.

I'm all for being said. The kind of micro nations that exist within our nation. The states have kept america so free and so successful.

New countries south sudan kozovo east team more. We now have north macedonia palau. Trae at three in nineteen ninety-three of course the czech republic slovakia and the trend is more countries are applying for sovereignty rights from the united nations. Or they're just self segregating themselves segregating the wrong word their self identifying them. They're identifying themselves as a nation and you look at the list of countries despite all of this push in the face of all the energy the trillions of dollars the list of countries on the planet since world war two has gone from nearly eighty four to well over at the last count one hundred and nine five nations people are demanding more representation locally not less and this kind of creepy dark mandated global tyranny is losing they get all the attention they all the headlines but biden trudeau macron merckel and johnson. Five out of the seven. Because italy japan actually have a little bit of a disagreement with the way this whole all has gone and they've reflected that in recent elections those five out of seven. They know they actually don't have the momentum they know that people are now demanding and self affiliating with things they can control not some far distant land to give up their sovereignty to brussels or boris johnson or to nato and that trend is healthy and will actually prevent by now.

"The book Reading Today is the American Revolution of 1800. Written by Dan System with a little bit of help from me, and mostly edited by me. I wrote a forward for it. It's an absolutely brilliant history of the election of Thomas Jefferson in the Times. So reading from Chapter one page nine, starting out quote from Thomas Paine, for it is the nature and intention of a constitution to prevent governing by party. Really? So often in the past century, the political history of America reveals a paralysis in the highest levels of our government legislation fails to past budgets, air voted down, compromise seems impossible, and the problems of the nation are neither addressed nor solved. Even brief periods. Of course, when this was not the case, the new deal is usually held up a Zen example of a time when American politicians actually came together to fundamentally transformed the nature and the political landscape of our country. In the generations. Since then, more often than not, we've seen gridlock rather than collaboration. Dimensional wisdom says that's the way I should be the founders of this country. The men who wrote the Constitution wanted there to be a loyal opposition to serve as a balance against excessive power in the hands of anyone political party or even president. It's conventional wisdom. Not only is that not true, but this pervasive myth has done considerable harm to our nation and continues to do so. The men in power from 17 90 to 80. No one did not even remotely conceive of the modern, two party system. In fact, the opposite is true. They wish to consolidate and perpetuate a one party system in politics in the United States and were successful in their lifetimes. Terms party in faction have had had such a long history that they were widely assumed by American statesman to be part of human nature. Is, it least was the approach taken by the two men most responsible for establishing the theoretical guidelines of the early Republic theme early American Republic, James Madison, Alexander Hamilton attempt to do analyze the terms in light of their influence. On the political system there. Federalist essays presented analysis of party in faction that is Maura than consistent with the history of the terms we reviewed. Madison referred to the violence of faction as a dangerous vice characteristic of free governments by faction, Madison wrote. I understand a number of citizens, whether amounting to a majority or a minority, the whole You are united and actuated by some common impulse of passion or of interest adverse To the rights of other citizens or to the permanent in aggregate interests of the community. Satisfaction is anti America, he continued. The latent causes a faction of those sewn in the nature of man, and we see them everywhere. US party as Madison understood. It was not something of recent origin parties have been around since the beginning of man and, he noted, quote the most numerous party or, in other words, the most powerful faction must be expected to prevail. He ends. His analysis on this note. To secure the public good and provide rights against the danger of such a faction is that that is then the great object to which our enquiries have directed. Yes. Madison captured the essence of the term faction and party as they were understood by his contemporaries, the faction and party. We're inescapably rooted in her human nature and produced violence, zeal, animosity, oppression and danger. All adverse to the interests of the community. He added. Quote, manufactures tempers of local prejudices or of sinister designs, made by intrigued by corruption or by other means. First obtained the suffrage is A vote and then betrayed the interests of the people. His conclusion is that factions must be broken and controlled. They are at all costs not to be legitimately recognized or encourage. Madison was not alone in his aversion to faction and party, Alexander Hamilton to warns the reader quote, ambition, avaricious personal animosity, party opposition and many other motives. Not more laudable than these were typical of that intolerant spirit. Which has at all times, characterized political parties and of quote. Registering his disgust for faction, Hamilton continued. It is impossible to read the history of the petty Republics of Greece and Italy without feeling sensations of horror and disgust at the rapid succession of revolutions. By which they were kept in a state of perpetual vibration between this the extremes of tyranny and anarchy. Hamilton. We might note context connects ancient history with modern America. The tempestuous situation he writes, from which Massachusetts has scarcely emerged, he was talking about Shay's rebellion. Events is the dangers of this kind are not merely speculative, who could determine what might have been the issue of her late convulsions if the malcontents would not have been headed. By a Caesar or a Cromwell and a quote in federalist number 77. He describes the influence of faction party intrigue, connections and quote personal influence in government. In a way that was characteristic of the terms from classical times through the age of Robert Walpole. Uh, Hamilton wrote. Every mere council of appointment, however, constituted will be a conclave in which Kobol and intrigue will have their full scope. And as each member will have his friends and connections to provide for the desire of mutual gratification will be get a scandalous bartering of votes and bargaining for places. It is worth noting here is not only Hammond to Hamilton's description of the influence of party and faction upon an administration his general description of politics. He's describing the politics of England for the previous century and a half. Moreover, he understands that encouraging party in faction at the theoretical as well as the practical level guaranteed that the emergence system of American politics would be propelled into the feudal violence and dissension. It had plagued every republic in history is throughout the remainder of his political career, Hamilton reserved a special contempt.

S. capitol building were user John Leland the great Baptist itinerant minister in himself an opponent of establishments preach Jephson also made the war department of the treasury building open for church services in Washington DC and that are into whatever exactly Jefferson meant by the this wall of separation certainly this public life and I can give you a lot more examples he did not act on that but then I go on in in in the following chapter to see if we turn our eyes from Jefferson Madison who indeed wanted a greater degree of separation the most founders we look at the founding generation as a whole and I mean here broadly the group of men who wrote the first amendment and the state legislature for sue ratified it there's nothing approximating ads are for Wall separation between church and state is just complete fiction to get started and how has it I mean it is taken root for some people some people it's funny to say believe that as gospel so when did that happen when did that erosion of the role of government start to sort of faster I believe a lot of it came about because of the profound anti Catholicism of the late nineteenth century basically we once we had public schools up and running they were effectively Protestant schools to King James five would be read pursued be said it Catholics became a larger percentage of the American population they said what we don't want to send our kids to process goals please give us our share the tax dollars we can at Catholic schools or at least let us read to do you a Bible in the public schools it's all said he had that James pointed others saying no no no we can't possibly do that because we have the separation of church and state and you have the proposal the Blaine amendment at the federal level and it was later accepted by many states as well no that was just as sort of separation that is really anti Catholic at the in the mid twentieth century particularly neverson versus the board of education and nineteen forty seven case the Supreme Court came down firmly on the principle that we have the separation of church and state both the majority that sent in that case focus almost solely on Jefferson and Madison and particularly the letter from the Danbury Baptists I think it's in the mid twentieth century that this myth by which I mean this fall story that American founders desire to strictly separate church and state was born so why do you think it's it's interesting that the the freedom from establishment of religion obviously is a part of the constitution and yet the Supreme Court we went to a different document to to to pull out the fact that that meant there should be no religion in the public sphere that's a big leap to usually puts out so usually by so I I argue in the book that this talisman clause means what it says that we are going to have a national church like the church of England when the installers will cause was applied to the states and we can argue about whether should have been a student of that but it has been into this now means that Colorado and Oregon and California will not have official state established churches but almost anything else goes and it doesn't mean anything else should go but certainly things like legislative chaplains calls for prayer and fasting but chief executives about your program so that parents who send their children to religious schools as well as secular schools can take advantage of none of this is problematic from an original sender standing of the establishment clause so back to back to when the the country was founded it's been my understanding them that a vast majority of the era and I I don't wanna say all because I don't know but the vast majority the founding fathers were not just religious man they were deeply religious man yeah I argue that in the in the book contract with that so many scholars senator you're going to see this for a moment wood said most of them were de Este I I quote about thirty scholars that say this sort of thing most of America's founders Rhodia's incentives to use is usually defined I think the numbers maybe one of you can Alan illness Thomas Jefferson Thomas Jefferson clearly speaks about god intervening in the affairs of men and nations most definitions of deism don't allow for that sort of thing yeah I do think it might be the case in Jefferson I know it's a case and Tom Paine that they were using this sort of language for rhetorical effect so on and so we can see that yeah maybe can get as high as four five founders better accurately labeled as DS but a number of founders like George Washington and James Madison Alexander Hamilton a regularly put in this camp and this is literally almost no evidence to support the proposition but then especially we turn from the five or six founders all of whom were shipping and it has clearly churches by the end of their lives with the exception of John Adams we turn to the broader founding generation what we see is a lot of orthodox Christians who very pious you do things like attend church and that sort of thing of course it's impossible to know they're hard but for this sort of documents we have there are very good reasons to conclude that many of them were in fact pies with Iraq's Christians how much did their faith play a role in their governance how much of a did their faith influence the writing of the constitution the declaration we obviously they reference the creator so they were you know that there's already religion injected into our founding documents but how much did it guide what they did I mean how much of it was based strictly on I just European style governance you know and how much of what we came from their faith I I've always wondered about that and never really seen that is that in your book because I love to read that yeah no that's exactly what I focus on sitting the way to understand address the question did America the Christian sounding is by looking intellectual influence and I contend that many of the key ideas that influenced American founders we either of Christian or ideas developed within the Christian tradition for political reflection so here I have a nine things like the idea that humans are sinful were or self interested the idea that humans are created the image of god and therefore worthy of being treated with respect and dignity under understanding of liberty is a profoundly Christian one and he's had all sorts implication so the sinfulness of man led to a creation a government emphasizing the rule of law separation of powers checks and balances in SO four don't let me see quickly understand internet distinctively Christian ideas one could be a complete atheist living in another country come to the conclusion that humans are self interested but in the late eighteenth century America when we look for what is the most likely cause of there are bracing these use I think we have to say Christianity do they also believe that the the liberty required morality and morality required religion.

Acting contrary wise to congress by the executive in the previous administration as I am presently as I say, even if I agreed with the with the president I'd had the same position your job is to revisit the act, and I am hopeful and expect expected you will do it and in so doing that the congress will stop acting like a parliamentary body and will act this James Madison Alexander Hamilton and the other framers intended, which was an adversary to the executive branch this goes back even in my lifetime to the nineteen forties, and it has been a continuous trend. And I say that as somebody who represented the first Bush administration arguing in court all the way up to the supreme court about the president's War Powers different from what we have here. But certainly this entire case cries out for the for the definition of what constitutes an emergency where president can act. And for how long why I think a neutral will be able to decide this question notwithstanding my full agreement with professor Turley that the act is currently written looks like a duck. And if I can give you a Louisiana reference things slapped on one another eliminating old. Emergencies that persisted for years. And the reason why I think that that court will be able to do that is that I don't think it can be the referee of your own game. And I don't think that using just the textualist tools that I believe a proper I support the judicial nominees of his administration, which I generally do that emergency require requires a definition. It's gotta be an exigency of some kind unplanned Sutton. That requires action in a timeframe to short for the two political branches to confer intact. Similar to what other witnesses have had to say one can argue about the language, but I think we know what an emergency looks like when we see it if I can paraphrase Justice Justice Stewart. And that's that's what I'm asking. What I'm asking you to do as far as the litigation goes and our -bility to challenge the act, I'm comfortable with the positions that were taking it's a coalition of organizations left right and center, none of us views it as as political. It's simply that we believe that it's constitutionally impermissible for the president to take action in what really is a non when the congress has already spoken and told him not to do the very thing that he's doing. Like, a in a sport the constitution intended that there'd be winners and losers in something ends a particular dispute in this case, what should have happened was the congress should have had not only the last word, but the definitive word. I'm happy to answer your questions. I respectfully ask that my prepared testimony be made part of the permanent record. Thank you. Mr. Carson all of your prepared testimonies will be part of the permanent record subcommittee chair. Steve Cohen, she's been radio programming from Thursday. CSPAN washed. We appreciate your testimony now proceed under the five minute rule for questions, and I will begin recognizing myself. You said you gave us two of the way she felt we should change the law. The first one had to do with clarifying. There was a significant change. And the second one was the the idea that ended after a certain number of days ten or thirty or whatever can you tell us you had some others in your testimony. Can you go up those quickly? And then I'd like to ask mister, Charlie. And Mr. Carson comment on your proposals. Thank you for the question at my third recommendation was that congress could could renew states of emergency on a periodic basis up to five years after five years. It can no longer be called an emergency. It has become a new normal of sorts.
