Hal Sparks on How Conservatives Have Lost the Script With Christianity
"Jenna Ellis, Trump's lawyer on the club Q shooting. She said the people killed in the nightclub that night, there is no evidence that they were Christians, assuming they've not accepted the truth of firm Christ as the lord of their life. They are now reaping the consequences of their eternal damnation, and you just said, who would Jesus lauder? Yeah. These fake Christians. They've lost they've lost the script entirely on Christianity. Like they have given up. And with a certain group of people, the buzz words of just calling yourself a Christian or dropping Jesus name like some like networker at a Hollywood party. Like, man, Jesus, I don't know if you know that Jesus, I went to Jesus camp. Anyways. So the deal should go through, right? I mean, I've never shot anything acted anything written anything or done anything, but Jesus, right? I said the right name, right? There's so much of that kind of gangster mentality around it that they don't even have to have a faux substantive argument, which is interesting because it did chase off in the last couple of weeks. Once Trump announced a bunch of evangelical leaders have all stepped back, I even saw one of the hardest right wing guys going. Maybe we should return back to a message of spirituality. I'm like, ya think.
Jenna Ellis: Every Seat Was Filled for Trump in Pennsylvania
"But Donald Trump showed up and you were there How was the energy What did the crowd look like And is that not why they're trying to stop this guy They want to cut him off at the knees before he starts running again Of course of course that's the reason and they want to legally block him They want to add measures to the constitution that would say that some bureaucrat in Washington gets to choose for the Republican Party who our nominee is and who you and me have an opportunity to vote for in 2024 That should never happen That's not part of the constitution But that's exactly what they're trying to do And they're also trying to get us conservative to have such Trump fatigue that we just say fine we need somebody new because we're tired of dealing with this Do we really think that when they're still calling Ron DeSantis and not sitting down in Florida and a fascist and all of these other ridiculous terms that whoever the nominee is whether or not Donald Trump or someone else they're going to attack that person just as strongly and they hope that it's not Donald Trump because he's the only one who has been able to withstand all of this immense pressure and not just yield to it and not just say okay fine I mean when he came out at that rally I love Trump rallies have been to so many of them This one in Pennsylvania was amazing because you had 10,000 people in a packed packed stadium Don't believe some of the videos that were taken when people were still coming in through security or when some of the pre show was going on When Donald Trump spoke every single chair in that auditorium was filled
Jenna Ellis: Precedence Is Being Ignored for President Trump
"Isn't that always the case where they are treating president Trump differently than every other prior and even the current president And that is what is so frustrating to so many people who are not only just Trump supporters but people like me and you who understand that the rule of law needs to remain intact in the rule of law means that you can't be biased whether the name of the former president is Clinton versus Trump It should be the same precedent And yet you're right they're making this out to be some literally federal crime here when they're ignoring all past precedent they're ignoring even the extraordinary measure to have an FBI raid I mean president Trump said in Pennsylvania last weekend that they even went in and searched his minor sons bedroom I mean this is just so far beyond the pale And yet these types of precedents are not being used and now these leftist groups are actually filing ethics complaints against judge canon to say that somehow she's an accessory of obstruction simply because she pointed a special master I mean this is weaponizing the justice system and the law enforcement in a way that we have never seen in the United States of America and regardless of whether you're a Democrat or a Republican or anywhere on the political spectrum If you are an American you should not be okay with this
Jenna Ellis: Bill Barr Draws Conclusions on Things We Don't Know About
"Right And we also know that personal properties such as passports and other personal effects and documents including clothing some other things we're taken by the FBI during the raid so this isn't just a clear cut property dispute in terms of who is the custodian of government documents And so for Bill Barr to come out and make these types of assertions I think really goes beyond some of these issues that do need to be litigated and adjudicated and he's jumping to a conclusion that assumes facts that we don't have a determination on yet And the thing that is really interesting to me about Bill Barr and about some of these other previous Trump employees in the administration or even on the campaign side that are now so anti Trump It almost seems like they have of some kind of form of PTSD that now they can't get over their personal experience being targeted and harassed by the left or whatever their experience was working for president Trump And so their lens is completely political And a rather than just looking at the facts and saying here's what the law is and what the law should properly decide And a special master here is exactly the appropriate remedy in terms of an equitable remedy to make sure that it is a fair and just outcome because the FBI and the DoJ should not be able to oversee themselves We should never just say okay well the FBI says that there's no confidential or privilege or document So sure let's just believe them That is absolute BS and a special master absolutely needs to go through this as an independent third party and oversee the government to make sure that president Trump's constitutionally protected rights are intact

Rep. Jim Jordan: Jan. 6 Panel Has Told at Least Eight Lies, Maybe More
"Saw you on newsmax the other night. And you were weighing in on the J 6 panel and you said they've been caught in 8 different lives. What are those lies? Well, they lied about Bernie Carrick's travels. They lied about very loud on the colleague of mine. They lied about the tour he gave to constituents. They lied about Jenna Ellis documents. They lied about Eric hershman, White House lawyer, the light about the note written Cathy Hudgens that she wrote it and there was a person said, no, no, I actually wrote that note. They lied about the Secret Service. We've had Secret Service come forward and say that what she testified to was not accurate. And they lied about me twice, they lied about a text message I had forwarded to The White House chief of staff. They said it was from me, a member of Congress when it wasn't. I had forwarded to him from a respected lawyer former inspector general for Don rumsfeld. And then they also took a video quickly where I was on Fox News talking and I was on Maria bartiromo show and the video clip started off with me saying January 6th is the ultimate data significance in a presidential contest. What they left off was the sentence right before that where I said the late justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said that January 6th is the ultimate date of significance in a presidential context because that's when you actually approve the electors. And that changes the entire context of that statement. So we saw that and then, of course, maybe the most important was when Zoe lofgren I remember the committee said, we don't corroborate witnesses testimony. And they didn't ask pat cipollone when he was deposed if what Cassie Hutchinson said about him was true. And his lawyer reported afterwards that if he had been asked to say it wasn't. So that's 8 different false things we've gotten from this committee. And Todd, we don't get to see the evidence. We don't get to sitting on the depositions. We don't get access to the transcripts of the video, the documents they have. We don't get any chance across examine. And so imagine how many other lives they've told the American people if we've caught him in 8 with that limited amount of ebb and we get to see.
Jenna Ellis: Governor & State Secretary Elections Are so Important
"For 2022 what is so important this November are the governors elections the Secretary of State election because those are the people who are going to administer the 2024 election and beyond And so what we saw in 2020 was a runaway executive branch that unilaterally changed the rules and the U.S. Constitution and also state law requires that it is only the state legislature that by statute creates the law for how elections are to be administered And so what happened in Wisconsin is this Wisconsin election commission just went out and created this rule that was completely arbitrary and completely a violation of state law against the will of the state legislature So we need to have people in every single branch The state legislature the executive and also the judiciary who understand that we are a nation of rules and not rulers so that we can minimize how all of the executive branching administration of the elections violate state law And that is not a part of the comic that is not whether you're Democrat Republican or anything in between Everyone should want elections to be administered But this is what the Democrats are just completely twisting I read an article in slate about this opinion and they're all mad because they go you know the Wisconsin Supreme Court is now saying that drop boxes which make it easier to access the ballot are illegal and they're trying to change election law I'm going wow wow wow that is not what happened with the Wisconsin Supreme Court did is recognize that only the state legislature can establish the law
Jenna Ellis: Court Rules Wisconsin Ballot Drop Boxes Are Illegal
"Me of a couple of things Jen and number one you know voter fraud is very real problem And number two if we get the right people in charge we can start to fix it So what happened and why is this important Yeah this is a really significant case that the mainstream media refuses to cover and the Democrats of course are twisting completely because what really happened is that the Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled four to three last Friday that absentee ballot drop boxes are illegal under Wisconsin law So this vindicates what the Trump campaign was arguing one of several things in November of 2020 and interestingly in one of the opinions by the court One of the justices actually said that and referenced Trump versus Biden in Wisconsin to say that the court should have addressed it back in November of 2020 And this is important Dan because what this did was show that the Wisconsin election commission a non legislative creature that was created out of the executive branch under the pretext of COVID put over 500 different unmanned drop boxes around the state illegally and every single ballot that was put into those drop boxes is by definition illegally cast So this has huge implications for the 2020 election and also moving forward for election integrity that those absentee ballot drop boxes are not allowed under Wisconsin law for elections moving forward
Jenna Ellis: SCOTUS Should Recognize States' Control Over Elections
"And then another point on this the legislatures there's a Supreme Court case coming up I think in the next term I'm just kind of going off the fly here Forgive me It wasn't part of my show prep today but I believe it's out of North Carolina Is the Supreme Court finally going to get involved in this over who's writing these darn election rules Jenna I mean we had the disaster in Pennsylvania in the 2020 election where they unquestionably the courts just unilaterally rewrote laws about what date you could accept the ballot by We've got to have national rules for national elections This can't continue to go on like this Well we have to have the Supreme Court involved to recognize that state legislatures are the constitutionally appointed authority that establish how the elections are administered in their state And when we're talking about the presidential election it's the state legislatures that choose the manner by which the electors are sent to Congress and ultimately vote This isn't a complicated issue but every single court in the post November contest did not want to deal with it because they thought it was too political And the chief justice back in Wisconsin in 2020 she wrote this quote elections have consequences One candidate Wednesday that loses but in every case it is critical that the public perceived that the election was fairly conducted In the case now before us and this was Trump versus Biden She said and a significant portion of the public does not believe the November 3rd 2020 presidential election was fairly conducted Once again four justices on this court can not be bothered with addressing what the statutes are required and ensure that absentee ballots are lawfully capped And that's exactly what it's about The courts have to step in and make sure and hold the executive administration and the administers of the election accountable to state law And that is not important comment
Jenna Ellis: Democrats Are Completely Hypocritical
"There's a 2012 New York Times article I've addressed that my podcast and radio show many times It's written by Adam lip tack where they clearly conveyed the problem with mass mail in balloting something else it was a problem in 2020 with COVID They indicated there that the evidence was there that the rejection rate was nearly two times as high as in person voting I mean this was an uncontroversial point The weird thing is they did that back in 2012 because mail in balloting was largely the purview of older Americans who tend to be more conservative and military folks who tend to be more conservative as well Then when they thought mail in balloting could benefit them the Democrats side because that's what most media people are All of a sudden the story didn't only disappear about the problems with mail in balloting It was the freest safest most secure way to vote 2020 no problems at all Total hypocrisy right Right And that's what the Democrats do They are completely hypocritical and they will change their position and attempt to change your reality and fact when it arbitrarily benefits them at a given point in time This isn't just exclusive to the issue of election integrity It's everything from women's rights the definition of a woman to the Supreme Court is super precedent and then as soon as roe versus wade is overturned oh no the Supreme Court isn't legitimate We got to pass the court Democrats don't care about the rule of law in any issue Any policy Any sort of law They will just say whatever works for them at any given moment
Jenna Ellis: Joe Is Breaking U.S. Law With Overseas Hunter-Oil Deal
"We have these new videos coming out him negotiating a crack deal whatever it is I mean this is the kind of thing that we started talking about hypocrisy I mean can you imagine for a moment if this was Don Junior or Eric or Ivanka I mean a God forbid on tape negotiating some crack deal in a ziploc bag when what appears to be some hooker or a prostitute I mean this is the kind of thing in any past political life I mean you remember when it was a controversy when Bill Clinton he smoked pot of but I didn't inhale My gosh now you're like a superhero with the Democrats if you smoke pot This is a devastating story but doesn't it create a blackmail crisis What else could be out there with this guy Yeah and it's not even shocking at this point unfortunately with everything that we know about hunter And you're right if this were the Trump kids it would be all over mainstream media This would be the worst thing and Trump would be impeached for another time and everything But the bigger story I think Dan is the story that came out last week that Joe Biden is selling off our oil reserves to China that the company that actually procured those Hunter Biden may still have an interest in I mean this is the type of stuff that actually is genuinely impeachable offenses where Joe Biden is intentionally not following U.S. law and he's intentionally not caring about the safety and security of American first He's caring more about his own foreign business interests and is beholden clearly to China I mean these are things that are incredibly scary that no one besides you Tucker Carlson you know me on my show a few of us are willing to actually cover and speak the truth but this is why media alternatives are growing so big and what Joe Rogan's podcast is huge because people are sick and tired of just hearing from the lame Democrats who refuse to cover these stories fairly and talk about the issues that really matter
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" Discussed on The Eric Metaxas Show
"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

"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..
"jenna ellis" 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..

"Sedar, one of the producers of the Eric metaxas show and you are listening to the Eric metaxas show. Today, Thursday, I've got Jenna Ellis, one of the new stars of the Salem radio network. She is with me today. We've been talking about the Kyle rittenhouse trial and there may have been a decision already. We're not sure because this is being taped in the morning. But Jenna, let's go on to another subject. And I'm going to let you pick it out and go and run with it. Yeah, so you know, we're talking Alban about media bias and how justice requires following the law and making sure that we're not just getting a political verdict in this trial that we're not just believing the mainstream media's narrative. And when we look at the scope of what the left is trying to do with January 6th, this is something that is so patently absurd that this as the president calls them the unselect committee that they are trying to force yet another political narrative. On the American people. And they're doing that in a way that is against the rule of law. It's against what Congress genuinely has oversight capabilities on their weaponizing that system in order to prosecute their political opponents. And I have seen for the years that I worked for president Trump and even everyone in the country has seen since 2015 from spygate to Russia collusion to the first impeachment hoax to then the COVID response and the disproportionate media blaming president Trump to now the second impeachment hopes and January 6, the left just continues to push this false narrative in the media so that they can hate president Trump and ultimately hate conservatives for standing up for the truth. All they want to do is censor and silence us. And again, like we said about the Kyle rittenhouse jury, the best way that we can stand up to this is to continue to tell the truth not back down and not yield to the mob, whether it is Congress, whether it's a vigilante mob from the left that is on Twitter that's coming to try to censor at silence us. We have to stand boldly and tell the truth. Yeah, yeah, we definitely do. You know, I wanted to make a comment about Merrick Garland since we're talking about Law & Order in this country and who he's going after. Keep in mind, he was the last person that president Obama suggested and he was supposedly Merrick Garland was supposedly like a moderate. Everybody's supposed to come together with this guy. He was supposed to go on to the Supreme Court for life. And these are his views on Law & Order and making judgment calls in America. That's Merrick Garland. That's Barack Obama's way of thinking. Yeah, and that's a great point, Alban because when Merrick Garland was just on the court and, you know, was a prior judge. He seemed to be moderate and was actually had some opinions that were in favor of religious liberty. He wasn't this activist leftist. And so when he was nominated for attorney general, frankly, that surprised me. And I think I actually talked with Eric about that at the time, saying, you know, this isn't the worst pick. Hopefully it's not gonna be like Eric holder, you know, and some of these other people that were in the Obama administration. And maybe we might see Joe Biden be a reasonably moderate president. And after January 20th, even though obviously, you know, I advocated for election integrity. It was very disappointed in the aftermath of that battle as one of president Trump's legal counsel, and of course on the legal team, we were trying to ensure that every legal vote counts and counted fairly. And I was very disappointed that the Supreme Court and all of the other lower courts would never give us a hearing on the merits. But once that was ultimately resolved in the sense that Joe Biden took the oath of office on January 20th and he became the sitting president, then I was hopeful that he would at least keep one promise, which was to be a moderate. That has completely gone out the window Joe Biden, which I don't even think it's Biden. I think it's his handlers. He's just an empty vessel and a figurehead. I don't even think he knows where he is half the time. And he mumbles and it's very disconcerting, but the people who are actually running The White House, the people, you know, like Ron klain, who's chief of staff, the people who are in The White House now. And Merrick Garland is running the DOJ. They are running this so far hard progressive leftist. They are actually weaponizing the executive branch and they're overreaching so far like these vaccine mandates. Everything they're doing with the DOJ, everything that they're just ignoring some of the precedents from the Supreme Court and saying, you know, we're just not even going to follow that. That is not what our executive ranches for and I think that Joe Biden's administration has actually committed some impeachable offenses. And if Congress were truly doing their oversight responsibilities, that would be what they're focusing on. Not any of this January 6 propaganda. Right. Well, yeah, impeachable is the operative word here. There's a lot of impeachable stuff going on out there. And I always like to look at things the opposite. If Donald Trump had done any of this stuff, do you think the press would have said like, well, okay. All right, we don't like it, but, you know, it's just like the president, you know? Yeah, yeah. And I like to point out too that if everything that had happened on in November in November 3rd, if everything had stopped, and then, you know, in the middle of the night, 6 swing states that Donald Trump needed, they stopped and took three days and all those votes kept coming in for Donald Trump. Wow, that's really something. Well, oh, the press would have said like, oh, okay. I guess he's the comeback kid. Nothing to see here. And if you'd say something about it, we're not going to report it. And we're not going to look into it because, you know, it's Donald Trump and it's a fair election. In fact, this was the fairest election there ever was. But somehow the other way around, it's like nothing to see here, folks. No, and it's always the Democrats who get to challenge anything. They get to say, no, we get to challenge the results. We get to go into court. We get to fight for this. And that's always fine, but when Republicans and conservatives want to do that, not only are we not allowed to, we are persecuted for even trying to get to the truth. We are going to be right back and try to get the more truth here with Jenna Ellis on.

"And you lose your right to self defense if you bring a weapon. I mean, some of those things, I'm not an advocate of making a lot of objections during closing arguments because closing arguments opening statements as just function of the trial, those aren't, that's not evidence. That's just the argument. But when the prosecutor is actually misstating the law, I think that would have been a great opportunity for defense council to ask the court to tell the jury that the prosecutor was making those misstatements. So it did seem that the prosecution really wasn't that well prepared aren't really that competent of lawyers and also are losing sight of their objective and their oath of office, which is to do whatsoever justice requires, follow the evidence and the rule of law, not just want to win. Yeah, I know. And that's the, again, that's a sad part about all of this because it's like you're looking at it and saying like, this isn't even the best people as it were bringing the prosecution. And so why is it taking like three days for the and unfortunately, again, we know why. And we can't judge the jurors at this point, because we don't know how we would feel if it was our town and we had to go home and hope nobody found out that we voted to acquit. You know, I mean, we have a family. They have a family, and you know, and it's something that's something Alvin that when you have jurors who supposedly some of the reports on the ground are saying that at least two of the jurors are very concerned about retaliation and vengeance on themselves or their families. That has absolutely no place in our justice system. These people are ordinary average citizens like you and me that are doing their civic obligation. They are sitting as jurors to hear the facts and make findings effect. They aren't the ones that created the law. They're not the ones that have any ruler responsibility other than serving their country, frankly, and their state by being jurors. And the fact that they are feeling that public pressure and intimidation, that is not justice. And for jurors, they should never feel like they are pressured one way or another. And I hope that this judge will make that very, very clear to the jury if he hasn't already, that that has no place in our system and that these jurors can fulfill their role and obligation without that fear and without that pressure because that's not fair to them that's not fair to their families, but it's also not fair to Kyle right now. I mean his life literally it's not the line here. And it definitely is not fair, but do you think that thugs really care about fairness? I mean, do they think like, oh, we better let the jury go because they heard the evidence and it's all, whatever they say, we don't like it, but you know what, we're gonna go home and we'll beat him next time, I guess. No, they don't care, they just want what they want like a kid that's screaming and crying and throwing things. Like they throw things because they want their way. And unfortunately, more people might die and certainly more buildings and more destruction will come. And the folks on the left will say like, yeah, see, that's the kind of country we live in. Well, and the best way to stand up to bullies is to not back down and to call them out for the boys that they are. And the fact that the left and so many people on the left are trying to bully the justice system, we can not tolerate that we can not vow to that because otherwise we will lose the interest of justice and we will lose all measure of the rule of law in our society. And when president Trump used to always say, I am a Law & Order president. That's what he meant. He meant we have to abide by the U.S. Constitution and the rule of law. That's what justice in this country is. Right. Well, we're going to be right back. We're going to probably skip over to another subject or two with Jenna Ellis, one of the newest stars here on the Salem radio network. I'm elvin sedar, one of the producers of the Eric metaxas show, and we will be right back. Hey.
"jenna ellis" Discussed on The Eric Metaxas Show
"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..

"Now we are ready to bring in Jenna Ellis who looks like she's in Italy or something like that if you're watching on rumble. Jenna Ellis welcome to the Eric metaxas show and thanks for being my guest today. So great to join you Alban. And you know it's so much fun about this is that Eric isn't here, so we can talk about him. And I think that, you know, that would be just an entirely fun hour to just talk about everything Eric. And I am actually in the Italian Riviera, but the Disney World version of that. And I have to tell you one of my favorite stories about Eric really quick because oh yeah, totally. Ish. Yeah, so we were at a conference in Orlando last year and maybe it was earlier this year. I don't even remember. You know, the time this year is flown by so fast. But we were at a conference speaking together in Orlando. We were meeting some of our good friends from Liberty University, shout out to Brian health and vine. Malachi and some of the guys. And so I'm going out to meet them. And of course we're going to Disney springs to get food because that's like one of the best places in Orlando. So Eric is texting me like, hey, what are you guys doing? We want to get food and I was like, yeah, come downstairs, maybe just in the lobby. He had no idea where we were going. So he comes down to the lobby thinking we're just all like hanging out at the hotel. And I'm like, get in the Uber and he's like, where are we going? So I'm trying to describe to him the amazing magical experience that is Disney springs in this Uber on the way. And he tells this story now where he's like, we went on this death march. It was like 5 miles into the wilderness of this mall. And he just goes on and he's a much better storyteller than me. But the bottom line is I took Eric metaxas to Disney springs. We had a very happy magical time. Did not get a picture with Mickey ears, but that's my goal for next time. And that was one of my favorite stories from America because he talks about hiking through Disney springs with me having no idea where he's going. We had a great time. Yeah, you had told that story a while ago with Eric and I and this was I think at the NRB when we saw you earlier this year. And I was like amazed because I thought who doesn't like divesting world or who doesn't like Disneyland, but he's not a Disney World kind of guy. But bringing him more into the magic. So, you know, hopefully, with that one experience that didn't totally chill the effective magic on Eric, but, you know, if he's listening to this, you know, hey Eric on vacation. Disney's a great thing. He needs to bring himself more into the magic. I know, it's like when my wife says, let's go to Europe. I say, let's go to Epcot center. I mean, I'm unfortunately on that kind of guy. And the only place I've ever gone to is the land of my grandparents birth, which is Slovenia. I went there and back in the early 90s with my my mom and dad. So we got that's a fun family business and some dish on Eric out of the way. But we got serious stuff to talk about. Now, we are taping this show, which means when we talk about the Kyle rittenhouse trial, that verdict may have already come in. So with that in mind, I'm going to throw to you Jenna to give us your impression of the whole trial and what's about to happen after the trial like us. Yeah, so we still as of the taping of this show right now, we still are waiting for the verdict. So this is Thursday morning at the moment. And I think that there will likely be if I had to predict a verdict before close of business tomorrow because juries tend to not want to come back over the weekend. They have already been here a couple of weeks. They have now deliberated since Monday. And so what's going on though in the Kyle rittenhouse case, just from a broad perspective, I know a lot of listeners have been following this. There's so much in the mainstream media. And there's so much different perspective and information. But what's so fascinating to me as a Christian, looking at our countries due process and looking at the whole scope of what a trial should be about, this should ultimately about be about justice for Kyle rittenhouse. No one else. This is not about greater commentary on the Second Amendment. This isn't greater commentary on racism, everything that either the left or right is trying to make it about. Because no matter what happens in a trial, ultimately, it boils down to whether the person who is standing trial is guilty of what the prosecution is charging them with. And here, I think that given all of the facts, all of the evidence here, it's very, very clear that Kyle acted in self defense. And that's not a commentary from a conservative Republican, Second Amendment fan, which I am, of course, very openly disclosed that I think everybody knows that. But this is from the perspective of someone who's been a prosecutor, someone who's been a defense attorney. This is all about making sure that true justice happens in every instance that we go into court because if we make this more about social justice as the left is trying to make it, Kyle isn't responsible for anything else. He is not responsible for the perceived racist sense of America's past. He's not responsible for every gun owner. He's not responsible for a greater social commentary..

I've enjoyed rediscovering you, having seen you on red eye before, and now hearing your podcast every day. I was curious if you've explored the biblical people slash race of the nepheline and related giants, including any serious scientific research about it. I've seen a few books and one with claimed photographic evidence of biblical giants. Wow. That's a George eastman must have taken that. Here's what I don't understand. Photography wasn't invented until about 1839 ish. And the nephilim are from approximately 1839 BC. That's roughly 4000 year gap. So I don't know what this person is talking about, all I know is I'm fascinated by this and I'm going to look into this. But if you want to get us information, I wish this person that send me a link, we just love getting your letters write to us. Tell us what you're doing. Tell us where you listen from. Don't say anything negative because we'll go into the fetal position. We need encouragement. Thank you, we'll be right back..

"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..

"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..

"Hey there folks a lot of times people ask me Eric, why do you live in New York? Well, part of the reason I live in New York is because people come through New York. People come to New York. And when people come to New York, I get to see them. For example, my friend Jenna Ellis came to New York today, and I said, Jenna, would you have time to come on the radio? And she said, I'm pretty busy. And I said, I don't care. You need to appear in my courtroom and here she is. Anything for you Eric. I am so great to see you, my friends it really is true. People come to New York for all kinds of reasons and it's one of the reasons that I, you know, if I live it up someplace in Connecticut, you wouldn't be here right now, would you? No, actually, because the reason that I'm here is to go to an event tonight as well to support our good friend Andrew Giuliani who's running for governor of New York. How old is he? Is he old enough to run for governor? Yes, he is, even though he does have kind of the baby face. But we know how old he is now. He's probably a few years older than me, so we won't go into exactly how old. But he can't be that old. No, you know, you know why I'm saying this because I literally remember, like it was yesterday. This is what happens. I think the older you get, the more time I literally remember my father commenting, we were watching the news. And the 8 year old brat, Andrew Giuliani. Disrupted his father's inauguration as mayor. Yes. It was the funniest thing it was like everybody's nightmare. Like, I'm gonna be, you know, made the mayor of New York City and my 8 year old is gonna be running around and no one can catch him. It's like one of the funniest things ever. So when people say like Andrew Giuliani's running through, I thought, wait a minute, he can't be running. Governor, he was just like disrupting his father. And then you'd be like, yeah, Eric, that was like 1990. 91. But the 90s were only like ten years ago, right? Because in my whole place that's right. I feel like the first decade of the 2000s just somehow didn't exist. So every time it makes sense, it was a moment ago and yet that's 30 years ago. So yeah, now maybe he's crazy. He's bumping 40. Okay, well look. I want to talk to you about everything. But let's start there because first of all, for those who don't know you, shame on you. No, if you don't know Jenna, how do I describe you? You are, first of all, now. Friend of Eric metaxas. Your friend of mine, you have a podcast on the Salem network. Yay. Salem radio. Yes. You're a newsmax contributor, you still have some affiliation with president Trump. Yes. I'm an adviser good friend and was formerly the senior legal adviser to the reelection campaign in personal counsel to him while he was in office. That's right, and that's when you were hanging out with the Rudy Giuliani, whom you will see tonight. Yes. Yes. I wish I could be there. I'm sorry I can't be there. I wish you could be too, but I'm sure he sends his regards and Andrew as well. And for everything that mayor Giuliani has been through, especially over this last year, it is just so insane how the left is coming after him for simply representing his client. I mean, they're coming after me as well, frankly, but not nearly to the extent that they are Rudy. And from the profession from a perspective of being a lawyer, it used to be that if you represented the politically inconvenient candidate or the politically inconvenient people I mean, look at To Kill a Mockingbird. You know, it was like you were you were lauded as a defense attorney like John Adams. You know, who represented people who deserve a defense. And so just because the left absolutely hates president Trump, they are now trying to turn the profession of advocacy into a political commentary and they're coming after every single person that was associated with Trump in just such a disastrous way. And this has such an impact on the future of America because if we tell lawyers that in order to advocate for a client, that means that necessarily, you have to subscribe to their position and you will be you will be liable for your bar license essentially based on not only the merit of their case, but the outcome, then we won't have advocates anymore in the United States. It's funny, the president Trump at some point. I don't know how he put it. He said, everything cancel culture, touches, turns to let's go Brandon, or so I can't remember the actual phrase. My dad's new favorite thing to text me by the way. But the fact of the matter is that this is fundamentally un American, it goes against everything the left stood for for many, many decades. I mean, when you think of To Kill a Mockingbird and you think of Atticus, Finch, it is interesting how there was this nobility in the profession. I have a theory. I'm not really talked about it. But part of the destruction of the west is the destruction of the idea of roles and professions. In other words, if you were a teacher in 1940, you know, you couldn't be seen getting drunk someplace. You address a certain way. If you were a doctor. You had a profession that it became part of who you were wherever you went. And the idea that the profession of journalist, lawyer, that even these things, doctor, are being attacked. It's a bigger, it's a bigger thing, but anyway, I'm so glad to hear that Rudy Giuliani is otherwise doing well. I want to talk to you about so many things. I want to talk to you about vaccine mandates. Why don't we talk about Southwest airlines, which has been in the news very recently. I haven't followed it closely enough, which is why I have people like you come on the program. Yeah. So southwest, this has been really interesting. It's been trending in the news since Sunday. And basically Southwest had to cancel over a thousand flights and they claimed initially that it was for the weather. And a lot of them were actually out of Florida. And ironically, I was actually out speaking at a conference in Miami. And it was beautiful weather. When I flew out on Sunday. So this was of course not weather related. They're trying to claim that it wasn't for pushing back against the vaccine mandates. But what a lot of people are speculating and what I think there is some merit to is that there is a group now of pilots who are saying we are refusing to be coerced by our employer to take the vaccine. And in fact, the union of Southwest pilots has filed a lawsuit in the federal district of Texas, pushing back on this, and basically saying that this is now a unilaterally imposed condition of employment. And what's interesting here is that traditionally conservatives have been kind of anti union for a lot of really good reasons. Oh, yeah. And to say that, you know, we are coerced into having to give union dues. And then they, of course, funnel those dues to Democrat candidates or things like that. But this shows the power of collective bargaining. And if saying that if you're just one little individual person, I've gotten so many requests from so many people across the country saying, we need to have an exemption. We don't want to take the vaccine. And to have this kind of collective bargaining power in the same way that you file a class action in the same way that groups are powerful, this group of pilots is now pushing back and saying we will not be coerced by our employer into unilaterally modifying our employment conditions to take a vaccine that could, by the way, have a lot of negative influence. There was a friend of mine who was even saying the other day that a friend of his, who is a pilot for a different carrier, has some anecdotal evidence to say that there have been some pilots who have had blood clots or myocarditis, other things at altitude. And so there are a lot of pilots that are very concerned about that. Did I just hear that? Pilots, flying planes because of the vaccine may have issues, that's extraordinary..

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.
