A statue of Confederate general that became the focus of US protest for racial injustice has been removed in Richmond, Virginia City that served as capital of the pro slavery south during the civil War. The statue of General Robert E. Lee, who commanded the Army of North Virginia, is among the hundreds of Confederate monuments across the United States. Now widely considered to be symbols of racism. Former President Donald Trump apparently has a strategy for the 2024 election that is profitable. He teases another presidential bid without announcing a run that has left him with more than $100 million in donations, which could scare off donors for other candidates by not declaring Mr Trump is free to use the money to act like a candidate without the restrictions that come with an official run. Germany wants to accelerate its vaccination campaign with his so called action week. Health minister says the effort will target sports facilities, churches, playgrounds and workplaces.

All right, 100 Biden still out there and remember, these are the types of questions. Joe Biden is getting listening from the weekend. What flavor? Did you get that call Black way? Flavor ice cream Did you get How on Sirius Star Way? What flavor Ice cream did you get? Well, that's where again Our media is not actual media. It's propaganda, and we should stop calling it media and we should start calling it mainstream propaganda. That's what it should be called, because that is exactly what it is you you had to CBS reporter make the mistake of asking last Friday. I believe it was and Joe Biden. Instantly accused him of smearing him. And I said I knew you would do that. These are the types of questions you ask system here and as expected, you know, we talked about this right after it happened. We talked about that Monday morning and I was looking at that going. I know what that is. I know what that is. That's a cudgel. That's not it's not just for that CBS reporter that is a warning shot to every other reporter. You ask this question. I'm going to mock you. And in fact, somebody else attempted to ask the question on Sunday. And when they did, the other reporters were heard on tape laughing that they ask the question about Hunter Biden and naked and that's it. It's all the pressure in the world. You need your colleagues. They're treating you like garbage. I'm telling you, you shouldn't do this. This isn't out of bounds. Question your preposterous person. You'll never make it in this industry of us questions like that. That's on serious on. So so the message has been sent. And so now what do we get? We get questions. Like what Flavor? Ice cream did you get? Because that's actually much more serious. That's acceptable that you'll advance. You'll make it really far kid when you asked the ice cream question, and he was praised by the left for before studying at the using the Donald Trump's School of interviews that Joe Biden used Donald Trump's school of dealing with reporters to put them in their place. You know, in the Hunter Biden News update for you because they won't tell you we will. The FBI is in possession of 100 Biden's laptop, and it has been since December of last year. Fox News End CBS for that matter, confirming PBS also confirmed this that this is no Russian disinformation. The FBI and Justice Department officials are concurring. With director of National Intelligence John Radcliffe that this laptop is not part of a Russian disinformation campaign. Despite what you're hearing from people like Senator Chris Murphy and Congressman for some reason, Adam Schiff. Despite that, This is not a Russian disinformation campaign. The intelligence community has no reason to believe that Yet. This is the way they're trying to get you to stop talking about it. Some kind of conspiracy theorists. Were you a traitor? What do you pro Russia for Putin? You're not allowed to talk about this. Stuff talking about it, and it's worked. The brow beating has worked for a whole swath of people in Washington. But not everyone is not so far. I just my bigger question is not whether this is Russian Russian disinformation for me. This is all about what the heck was the FBI doing with the laptop for almost a year and not a peep? Not a word came out and I highly doubt That if this hadn't happened if Rudy Giuliani didn't get the laptop, and if Bevin Connor or Connell didn't did not dump those 23,000 emails to Peter Schweizer That we would even be talking about this. I think there's their shenanigans afoot in the FBI and DOJ, and that's why we did not know about this sooner. Yes, it's terrible. And we know again. I can. We can keep flipping this around. What if Don Jr did this the thought experiments worth it. If Don Jr had done, this of John Junior's laptop had been obtained by the FBI. Nominally Donald Trump's FBI If Donald Trump Junior's laptop have been obtained by the FBI in December of last year, and it contained evidence that he had been arranging kickbacks to his father for rearranging American four part foreign policy around his son's business interests, I can guarantee you The FBI would have sent Almost daily on urgent letter to Congress about what they had in their in their possession, right. How often would they be alerting the House Intelligence community Committee that they have something of importance that they need to know about? You need to know about this. We went through. Just imagine when all this happened. Dated back December 2019 what was happening in December of 2019? When the FBI came into possession of 100 binds laptop showing that Joe Biden may actually have financial entanglements worthy of exploration. What was happening in December 2019. The impeachment of Donald Trump the impeachment of the president, the United States for a phone call. Meanwhile, the F B I in possession of 100 binds laptop that very same time. I don't know.

Reverend Markel Hutchins, one of the lead organizer's says the weekend will include activities like town halls, picnics, athletic events and vigils.

W GOP knows it's 5 12 President Trump's respect for the military is being called into question after a report in the Atlantic that said the president referred to the war dead as losers and suckers. President Trump addressed that story in a recent use conference, not saying the military is in love with me. The soldiers are The top people in the Pentagon probably aren't because they want to do nothing but fight wars so that all of those wonderful companies that make the bombs and make the Plains and make everything else they have in double GOP national security correspondent J. J. Green joined us earlier and he told us there's been very little response from the top military brass Cesaire highly professional people. Who are committed to the hard work that their positions is secretary of defense and the Joint Chiefs of Staff require. It also does not leave any room for them to respond to comments like this, no matter how much it might wound their ego or annoy them. It's a tough time for them, but they've been very quiet about this today, but we do know that there are some people out there who do speak forthem. Well, what are those people saying J. J. That quote that we heard came from someone who has never, apparently, according to one source that I spoke to had to load any critically wounded people into medevac helicopters and never zipped as this individual's, said his friends into body bags and never signed letters of condolences to wives or moms and dads of the fallen. So this was a situation where this this comment from some of the folks who are not currently serving in the military, but who did have said this is one of those things, and that's how they view this comment that President made as best as you can determine. What does it say about the relationship between the president and the military leaders at the Pentagon? It's strange. There's no two ways about it. It's trained right after that situation of Lafayette Park, where the secretary of defense, the Joint Chiefs chair, you know, they essentially walked over to ST John's Church with the president. It was a situation where they were caught. In a in a position that they didn't want to be in. And since that time they've been left in this situation where they've had to deal with that on DH. It's my understanding that because they didn't speak up or say anything on the president's behalf after this Atlantic article has not set well with the president, which has led to Him thinking perhaps they're not on his side anymore.

"K DOD, if you missed Brian Kilmeade, you missed. So volt people Bill Moore, who's a comedian and most of his friends at comedians, as well as a commentator said this yesterday, another network, and I wholeheartedly agree and possibly comedians have been hurt by this culture that we're in right now. More than anybody else. Cut thirty eight a lot of this far left political correctness is a cancer on progressivism. I think when you when you talk to Trump supporters they're not blind to his myriad flaws. But one thing they always say is he's not politically correct. I don't think you can underestimate overestimate how much people have been choking on political correctness and hate it, the vast majority of liberals in this country hate it. They, they think political correctness has gone way too far one. Likes to be living on eggshells. So if we agree to that, and I'm being presumptuous, if we agree, the political correctness is is so bad. How do we get out of it? Well, I think, you know, part of the way that it starts is people decline. I think, really good example. Ralph north in Virginia. Yep. So here's Ralph north Virginia where it is assumed that at the first that because there was a picture of clansmen and a guy in black face in his on the on his page and his medical school yearbook. He was done. And every said he's got to resign. He's gotta go, and he declined and said, I won't and outrage machine churn for a while longer, and it was there, but as time went by pretty soon, and then pretty soon, people took a survey in Virginia, and even among African American voters in Virginia Beach said, now, it's like as the great philosopher Whitney. Houston said it's not right. But it's okay. And that was thirty five years ago and moving on. And I think north lesson for a lot of people in public life. And in politics, there are things that people do that deserve the total, a program to be exiled to be shunned to be made a pariah that is appropriate for some things. That's how you preserve civilization. But we end up. We're sort of now in the position. On this stuff where France was after the revolution. Right. The, the no, no, no, no. I'm serious.

It's different for Joe Biden to smell somebody's hair than it is for someone to commit a sexual assault.

"Four thirty one ten on the congressman Omar situation. Are we in the last segment we're going to keep updating your this Nancy Pelosi the house leadership condemned the comments yesterday called for an apology? It was a fake apology, which she said it was an unequivocal apology. She kept going and they've said at the same time and attacked a APEC that she retweeted someone later on last night. He was attacking Nancy Pelosi, and it she endorsed the statement, by the way with a fist up. So it wasn't like just a re tweet. It was endorsement of the statement was attacking APEC, attacking Jewish money and pro Israel, money and politics. In America and attacking Nancy Pelosi. So we so we believe, you know, she's she's on the house foreign affairs committee. It's an action Nancy Pelosi could take a real action. Not just words that obviously this is the member of congress. She didn't understand how to do an apology. She admits in her apology. She doesn't know what she's saying. What's not? Let's say you take it believe it. I don't I think she knows exactly what she's doing. But let's take that don't empower the house Ford affairs committee that should have the right person to be getting classified briefings on American foreign policy. She doesn't understand how her language is being used that could be used even is big us. So she's attacking Nancy Pelosi. So I have got to speaker and do something about your own party. I think it would go a long way to helping Democrats, and I'm not someone who's, you know, help it, you know, trying to give out a lot of advice to help the the left, but at the same time, I think you put an interest in this kind of situation you're putting American interests above partisan politics by getting this specific individual. Put some other lefty on there who who understands the difference between the liberal, and and anti-semitism, for instance, and those kind of remarks and more careful in their tone and again. Totally the purview. They won the majority of the house, but you don't have to empower people like her to be on the foreign affairs committee. We'll take your phone calls one eight hundred six eight four thirty one ten. The biggest news is that fan. The house and Senate negotiators have announced they have in principle agreed with that they think they can get into legislative texts and have a vote on that would avert a government shutdown. Let's explain to people what is about. Yes. The staff is working right now to put it into legislative texts. We'll know exactly what it is. When we can see that text. But by all reports, Jordan, they seem to agree to have to have an agreement based around a couple of pillars one of which probably one of the people care. The most about is. Apparently, it's going to include one point three seven five billion dollars for new wall. New construction about fifty five miles worth Jordan. We've talked about on this broadcast many times that we were going to be looking for two things. First of all the amount. I would tell you that the amount of one point three seven five is not very good. It's it's lower than the Senate appropriations committee passed out previously. But the second thing we were going to look for was new authority for new wall in that regard. Your the report suggests that that language is pretty good that it would authorize new construction new wall for fifty five miles worth of new constructions for sort of a mixed bag on that front and then just quickly. There was another dispute over how many detention beds is could have and just very quickly that that would be a limit on the number of criminals, Jordan that ice could hold shockingly Democrats, and I I really can't justify this to you. They wanted to put a cap on the number of criminals that ice could detain. They're currently about forty nine thousand being detained. They wanted to lower that all the way down somewhere around sixteen thousand. Yes, the practical effect of that would ice would literally have to release thirty three thousand criminals, Jordan that language appears to have been dropped. It looks like there won't be a statutory cap. We don't know exactly how they're going to work that out. But it looks like it will be similar to the funding that was in previous Bill, so one point three seven five billion dollars for new wall. And then something along the lines of the. Status quo as far as the number of detention beds. That is can have. All right. Let's go right to the phones. One eight hundred sixty eight four thirty one to we have a question on those detention beds uh specifically Robert in Virginia online wanted to comment on Robert welcome to jaysekulow live. Thanks for holding. You're on the air. Thank you boy with all that talk about antisemitic congresswoman, and even thrown in the after birth abortion that stuff to stay on track with the the border enforcement. Yeah, it is the left is like throwing down. It's like day after day. It's Ralph north Virginia mess, they're creating a lot of issues, which are I I'm not gonna call them distractions because you have to address things like this, you know Roberts. So I mean, that's we're trying to do at the same time. I do want to get to you know, like what you're saying. Which is these issues like the border and also the potential for a shutdown which affects every single person very immediately. Go only getting probably getting a quarter of President Trump's requested funding for the the barrier. Actually, I think the number detention beds should go up that dumb. But apparently this is in question. And there are in this Bill. I think we need another three week extension. So the American people can examine this Bill. Well, I mean, that's the that's the the the question is is on this detention bed issue, which is kind of a new issue in the last forty eight hours for everybody. I think that the for the left it's been an issue. But for now, you know, now that the American people learning that this is something you want to put in place, we played the people at Robert is referring you to. I mean, I know you briefly talked about this idea of. Yeah. Forty thousand issue, and and maybe go up from there. But but what was the left trying to do? And I think Mitch McConnell had to come out and say, no, we're not gonna ever yet. What he did? And and you're right during this has been an issue for the left in Washington for some time. And I think the American people need to be better educated and understand what the left is asking for here. Let me summarize it this way currently ice has funding for about forty thousand beds. You need a bed to detain someone in order to keep them in and they detain criminals. And we're talking about not just people that are illegally president. We're talking about people that have committed crimes above and beyond that now in addition to the those forty thousand beds that ice uses they are also. Able to reprogram a limited amount of dollars from other sources, do they currently actually have about forty nine thousand criminals in detention have beds for forty nine thousand criminals, the president Jordan had asked for fifty two thousand because there's a growing need for more detention space, Democrats and the left in Washington have asked for a statutory cap. A limit on the number of beds and people criminals that the administration is able to detain Jordan. They don't want it to be limited somewhere around the number currently detained they actually want it to be down somewhere around sixteen thousand so the practical effect of that is you would be releasing somewhere between thirty and forty thousand detained criminals back into the society for no reason at all other than the left doesn't want them to be detained that language, Jordan. It appears like is not in this agreement which is a good thing. But I do think the American people need to understand exactly what the left is asking for. They are literally asking for a statutory limit on the number of criminals that ice can detain as. Jordan. You're going to be able to predict how many criminals you can pick up any few pick one up Jordan. You shouldn't have to release them. Let's go to Brian is calling Kentucky on line for the second half hour is coming up. So we'll continue take your phone calls and one eight hundred six eight four thirty one ten Brian. You're on the air gas. Thanks for taking my call. Thanks. Yeah. You know, pertaining to that. You know, I think the offer that the Democrats are trying to pass over as is nothing more than political posturing up until this point. They haven't been willing to concede anything, you know, the one point three billion, you know, fifty five miles of a border fencing. That's great. But it's still leaves a lot of open pores in order for trafficking become through and drugs. And and you know, people who are coming over here to do things that are illegal. Well, I think Brian this leads into perfectly.

"So as Amazon crows and eliminates competitors within the retail market. There are minimizing the jobs in that industry. So you see all these different euro retail and department stores are closing down or reducing their retail store presence. That's having an impact on the economy in terms of you know, what's happening to those shops in where those jobs are going. Now speaking Amazon's kind of expansion, obviously, you know, we talk in the last couple of months about their kind of H Q pursuits. They are they have they stand. The gain a lot from tax payer funded subsidies, while they're moving into, you know, these new locations in New York and north Virginia with those new Hugh hubs is there any risk to those subsidies at all and considering it's coming from the government government funding, if the company of Amazon is kind of proven to be mistreating its workers in that regard. Well, I think at this point it's not a secret how I am is on treats its workers. And I think a lot of people would like to see the subsidies, you know, people get rid of I think with a lot of the activists in organizing has been put on politicians to to stop giving Amazon those large subsidies, and it's not even just what the headquarters every time. There's a fulfillment center. There's you know, I live in upstate New York in there's a fulfillment center proposed just twenty minutes away that they're supposed to build. Soon and there's eight million dollars in subsidies. At least just for a film insider, you know, were it's socialism for corporations in a sense. And. There is a lot of no public resentment towards that for good reason. But unfortunately, most of the politicians in charge haven't been reluctant all to to stand up to Amazon. A small few with Sanders unroll Khanna leading the way to push Amazon to raise their minimum wage to fifteen dollars an hour. But they're really politically. There is in much, you know, going on in terms of politicians who have the power to actually stand up and start revoking those subsidies. But I think that you know, the trend will likely lead to that. Because Amazon is getting bigger and bigger there is a a greater public backlash to that rapid growth and Howard treats its workers in what that means for our society and our economy in just an example, or in in terms of the the political backlash on the city of Tempe. Arizona. A couple months ago, they voted to stop purchasing any hub city purchases through Amazon went from spending over two thousand dollars a year on Amazon through public in city expenses. They're going towards nothing in hopefully, more cities will will pick up on that. And it'll local businesses. I think are starting to to push back on a local in city councils to say in all you need to start helping people that like us in your local economy rather than trying to win over bend over backwards for Amazon. Yeah. Super complex too because I mean, obviously people are voting with their wallets. And I mean this holiday season alone prime, you know, sales numbers were off the charts. So you know, it it ends up being the tradeoff, right? People want want their products cheap. They want it fast. And look, you know, this is how this how Amazon chooses to get there for better for worse in. It's not a good not a good thing. So I think it forces people to kind of look in the mirror and reevaluate like how how much is this worth to you? Other companies are doing this to Taylor's. There are lots of film centers are doing the same thing. And they're trying to keep up with Amazon's like if you look into places like X P O fulfillment. I think it's called they have horrible working conditions because they're trying to keep up with Amazon on setting gold standard right of what you can do in that regard. Yeah.
