This week’s show centers on the fallout from sequestration. Plus, we talk with one of the top Tea Party leaders in the country as Matt Kibbe from FreedomWorks joins us. Also, a look at a shop owner in Virginia who is giving gun owners ... Read Transcript


David: THIS WEEK ON

"THE BRODY FILE," IT IS THE

MOST FAMOUS WORD IN

WASHINGTON.

THE SEQUESTER.

SEQUESTRATION.

David: SEQUESTRATION,

WHAT WILL BE THE FALLOUT.

JOHN JESSUP IS ON CAPITOL

HILL FOR US.

AND ONE OF THE TOP TEA PARTY

LEADERS OF THE COMPANY IS

HERE, TALKING ABOUT WHERE

THE TEA PARTY GOES FROM

HERE.

WHAT WE'RE GOING TO DO

THIS TIME IS REAL

RECRUITMENT.

David: PLUS, IF YOU

OWN A GUN, YOU MIGHT WANT TO

HEAD OVER TO THIS GUY'S

STORE FOR YOUR SECOND

AMENDMENT DISCOUNT.

IT IS POLITICS WITHOUT THE

FEAR FACTOR.

"THE BRODY FILE" IS NEXT.

*

David: AND WELCOME,

EVERYBODY, TO "THE BRODY

FILE."

WE HOPE YOU'RE HAVING A

GREAT WEEK BECAUSE, WELL,

REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS

SURE AREN'T.

WHEN DO THEY EVER HAVE A

GOOD WEEK?

YEAH, THEY'RE ARGUING AGAIN

AND PLAYING THE BLAME GAME.

THIS TIME THEY'RE ARGUING

OVER A WORD THAT THE

MAJORITY OF AMERICANS REALLY

HAVEN'T THE SLIGHTEST IDEA

WHAT IT MEANS.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE

SEQUESTER, OR

SEQUESTRATION.

THAT'S ALL YOU HEAR INSIDE

THE BELT WAY.

THE SEQUESTER.

SEQUESTRATION.

THE SEQUESTER.

THE SEQUESTRATION THING.

WE ARE NOT CLOSE TO AN

AGREEMENT.

David: THIS IS ALL

ABOUT SPENDING CUTS,

$1.2 TRILLION OVER 10 YEARS,

$85 BILLION OVER THE FIRST

YEAR.

THEY HAVE NOW OFFICIALLY

GONE INTO EFFECT BECAUSE,

WELL, BOTH SIDES COULDN'T

REACH A BETTER DEAL.

THE WHITE HOUSE SAYS IT IS

THE REPUBLICANS' FAULT

BECAUSE THE G.O.P. WOULDN'T

AGREE TO A BILL THAT HAS

SOME TAX REVENUE IN IT.

AND THE REPUBLICANS BLAME

THIS ON THE WHITE HOUSE

BECAUSE THEY SAY IT WAS THE

PRESIDENT WHO CAME UP WITH

THIS IDEA IN THE FIRST

PLACE.

PLUS, THEY ALSO SAY

PRESIDENT OBAMA REALLY

DOESN'T EVEN WANT TO CUT

SPENDING.

SO HUES FAULT IS IT?

WITH THINK IT IS JOHN

JESSUP'S FAULT, SO WE

BROUGHT HIM ON "THE BRODY

FILE" TO DISCUSS THAT -- NO,

NO.

IT'S NOT JOHN'S FAULT, BUT

HE IS ON CAPITOL HILL

KEEPING TRACK OF THE BLAME

GAME.

JOHN, THIS IS SO CAPITOL

HILL.

YOU'RE RIGHT, AND BRODY,

BEFORE WE GO TOO MUCH

FURTHER, I'M GOING TO USE A

FAMOUS POLITICAL LINE,

"THERE YOU GO AGAIN."

WITH THE BLAME GAME.

WHAT I PICTURE HERE IS

BASICALLY A RACE WHERE ALL

OF WASHINGTON IS INVOLVED,

AND THE FINISH LINE IS

SEQUESTRATION.

YOU HAVE EVERYBODY RACING

AHEAD OF SEQUESTRATION'S

IMPLEMENTATION.

AND NOW YOU'RE BEGINNING TO

SEE A LOT MORE PEOPLE NOT

EVEN ATTEMPTING TO SAY IT IS

BAD.

SURE, THEY MAY ALL AGREE

THEY DON'T LIKE THE WAY OR

THE APPROACH TO THE WAY THE

CUTS ARE MADE.

HOWEVER, FISCAL

CONSERVATIVES SAY DESPITE

THE UNEVEN HAND, WITH 35% OF

THE CUTS GOING TOWARDS THE

MILITARY, THESE CUTS ARE

NECESSARY BECAUSE WASHINGTON

HAS A MASSIVE SPENDING

PROBLEM.

David: WHAT IS BEING

DONE TO REALLY KIND OF AVOID

THIS WHOLE BIG MASSIVE CUT

FOR THE 10 YEARS?

AS I MENTIONED, THERE WAS

A LOT OF EFFORT BEFORE THE

SEQUESTRATION TOOK EFFECT.

NOW YOU'RE SEEING A LOT MORE

PEOPLE BACK AWAY FROM DOING

ANYTHING.

I THINK WE WON'T SEE ANY

REAL EFFORT TO PREVENT

THIS.

THIS FIRST YEAR, $85 BILLION

IN CUTS.

BUT WE WON'T SEE ANY REAL

EFFORT UNTIL MORE PAIN IS

FELT AT THE LOCAL LEVEL.

YOU'VE HEARD PEOPLE TALK

ABOUT GOVERNMENT FURLOUGHS,

AND LONGER LINES AT SECURITY

AT THE AIRLINES.

BUT UNTIL IT AFFECTS PEOPLE

AT THE LOCAL LEVEL, I DON'T

THINK YOU'RE GOING TO SEE AN

EFFORT TO BEGIN TO ROLL BACK

SOME OF THE EFFECTS OF

SEQUESTRATION BECAUSE IT IS

$1.2 TRILLION OVER THE

NEXT 10 YEARS.

UNTIL IT HITS PEOPLE IN

THEIR BACKYARDS, I DOUBT

YOU'LL SEE THAT EFFORT, TO

RALLY TO PREVENT THE CUTS.

David: JOHN JESSUP ON

CAPITOL HILL.

SPEAKING OF BUDGET CUTS, NO

LUNCH TODAY.

ALWAYS CAN COUNT ON YOU

GUYS.

David: ALL RIGHT,

JOHN.

ONE OF THE REASONS WE'RE

HAVING THIS DISCUSSION OVER

SPENDING BECAUSE OF THE TEA

PARTY.

THEY'RE THE ONES THAT

SIGNIFICANTLY SHIFTED THE

CONVERSATION IN THIS COUNTRY

A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO.

ONE OF THE BIG GUNS IN THE

MOVEMENT IS MATT KIBBY.

HE IS PRESIDENT OF FREEDOM

WORKS, AND THEY'RE GEARING

UP FOR 2014 WITH CANDIDATES

IN ACTIVIST TRAINING.

WE SAT DOWN AND TALKED TO

KIBBY ABOUT ALL OF THAT, AND

HIS FALLING OUT WITH FORMER

MENTOR AND FREEDOM WORKS

CHAIRMAN DICK ARMEN.

TELL ME WHERE YOU ARE

WITH CANDIDATE TRAINING

BECAUSE FOR A WHILE NOW

YOU'VE BEEN DOING IT, BUT

NOW SEEMS EXTREMELY

INTRICAL.

I WOULD TAKE IT EVEN A

STEP FURTHER.

WHAT WE'RE GOING TO DO THIS

TIME IS REAL RECRUITMENT.

IF WE LOOK AT A POTENTIAL

FIELD AND WE DON'T SEE

SOMEONE WITH NOT ONLY THE

RIGHT VALUES BUT PRACTICAL

SKILLS TO WIN A STATE-WIDE

ELECTION IN IT'S CASE OF A

SENATOR, WE MAY HAVE TO GO

FIND THAT PERSON.

David: WE HAVE TALKED

TO STEVEN LAW, WHO HAS BEEN

IN THAT CHAIR.

I'M CURIOUS OF WHAT THE

PRACTICAL I IMPLICATION OF

THIS BATTLE THAT IS BREWING

WITH THE CONSERVATIVE AND

REPUBLICAN PARTY?

I THINK WE'RE IN THE

MIDST OF A VERY IMPORTANT

FIGHT FOR THE SOUL OF THE

CONSERVATIVE MOVEMENT, AND

THE SOUL OF THE REPUBLICAN

PARTY.

I THINK THE FORMER IS MORE

IMPORTANT THAN THE LATTER

BECAUSE PARTIES SHIFT AND

FLOW WITH THINGS.

BUT THERE IS A FIGHT ABOUT

WHETHER OR NOT YOU WIN BY

RUNNING ON NOTHING.

AND THERE ARE SERIOUS

REPUBLICAN CULTURE TANTS

CONSULTANTS WHO BELIEVE

THAT'S HOW YOU WIND, BY

SHIFTING TO THE LEFT.

VERSES THESE COMPELLING

CONSERVATIVE CANDIDATES BIKE

TED CRUZ, LIKE MARCO RUBIO

AND TIM SCOTT.

THESE ARE THE PEOPLE THAT WE

BELIEVE GALVANIZE THE

COALITION AND THEY WIN.

David: I GET THE SENSE

INSTEAD OF THIS BEING A

MODERATE VERSUS CONSERVATIVE

WITHIN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY,

I GET A SENSE IT IS MORE OF

THE ENTRENCHED G.O.P.

ESTABLISHMENT CENTER THAT

FOLKS IN THE TEA PARTY ARE

REALLY AGAINST.

THIS ISN'T REALLY A RIGHT

VERSUS LEFT THING.

IT IS VERY MUCH AN INSIDER

ESTABLISHMENT PROTECTION

PLAN, VERSES AL VERSUS ALL

OF THE INSURGENTS THAT ARE

REPOPULATING THE PARTLY.

THIS IS HOW WASHINGTON

WORKS.

YOU GET TO THIS TOWN, AND

SUDDENLY OVER TIME, YOU HAVE

FORGOTTEN WHY YOU'RE THERE.

YOU GET CORRUPTED.

MAYBE YOU GET A JOB AS A

LOBBYIST.

MAYBE IT IS BETTER FOR YOU

TO KNOW THE COMMITTEE

CHAIRMAN AND DROP THAT

SPECIAL PROVISION IN THAT

BILL, VERSUS THE BROADER

VISION OF BALANCING THE

BUDGET AND LIMITING THE

GOVERNMENT, AND MAKING SURE

THAT THE POWER REMAINS WITH

THE PEOPLE AND NOT THE

INSIDERS.

David: SPEAKING OF

CLASHING, I HAVE TO ASK YOU

WHAT WENT DOWN AT FREEDOM

WORKS WITH DICK.

I KNOW HE WAS YOUR PERSONAL

FRIEND.

WE WERE VERY CLOSE.

HE WAS ALMOST LIKE A FATHER

FIGURE TO ME.

AND I THINK THAT SOME OF THE

VITRIOL THAT EMERGED WHEN WE

WENT TO ARMI AND FREEDOM

WORKS WENT OUR SEPARATE WAYS

IS FROM THAT COMPROMISE

RELATIONSHIP WE HAD, AND

OTHER PEOPLE ON STAFF.

BUT I DO THINK THAT THE BEST

WAY TO UNDERSTAND THIS IS

THAT IT IS KIND OF A

GENERATIONAL CHANGE THAT

LOOKS A LOT LIKE THE TEA

PARTY MOVEMENT.

THERE IS YOUNGER PEOPLE

COMING IN, AND THEY'RE LESS

ENCUMBERED BY THE OLD RULES,

WELL, HE'S A REPUBLICAN, SO

WE SHOULDN'T GO AFTER HIM.

SO I THINK THAT'S PART OF

IT.

BUT IT'S TRAGIC.

IT IS THE MOST EMBARRASSING,

SLOPPY TRANSITION IN THE

HISTORY OF WASHINGTON,

PERHAPS.

David: THAT IS MATT

KIBBY HERE ON "THE BRODY

FILE."

TIME FOR A STORY OF

EVOLUTION.

FIRST PRESIDENT OBAMA SAID

HE WAS FOR TRADITIONAL

MARRIAGE, AND THOUGHT THE

TRADITION OF GAY MARRIAGE

SHOULD BE LEFT UP TO EACH

INDIVIDUAL STATE.

NOW HE IS A SUPPORTER OF

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE, AND HIS

ADMINISTRATION IS ARGUING

AGAINST THE STATE'S RIGHT TO

DECIDE THE ISSUE OF

MARRIAGE.

CONFUSED?

WELL, HEY, JENNY IS NOT.

JENNY AND THE "B" BLOCK IS

HERE TO EXPLAIN WHAT GOING

ON.

SHE IS ANXIOUS TO TELL US

ABOUT IT.

SO THIS WEEK SHE IS JENNY

AND THE "A" BLOCK.

PRESIDENT OBAMA IS GETTING

INVOLVED IN A BIG SUPREME

COURT CASE.

THE PRESIDENT SAID IT WAS

IMPORTANT TO AR ARTICULATE

THAT HIS ADMINISTRATION

STANDS FOR ALLOWING

HOMOSEXUAL COUPLES TO WED AS

THE SUPREME COURT CONSIDERS

THE CON CONSTITUTIONALITY.

THEY THE FILED A BRIEF

ARGUING THAT THE LAW

VIOLATES THE CONSTITUTIONAL

EQUAL PROTECTION LAW.

President Obama: THE

SAME EVOLUTION I'VE GONE

THROUGH IS AN EVOLUTION THAT

THE COUNTRY HAS GONE THROUGH

AS A WHOLE.

Reporter: DAVID, THE

BIG QUESTION IS HOW MUCH

INFLUENCE THE PRESIDENT'S

BRIEF WILL HAVE ON THE

COURT.

David: I WANT TO BRING

UP SOMETHING WHILE WE HAVE

YOU HERE, SEQUESTRATION AND

THE DEMOCRATS.

TALK TO ME A LITTLE BIT

ABOUT THAT?

APPROVAL RATINGS FOR

CONGRESS, THEY'VE BEEN IN

THE TANK FOR A LONG TIME.

SINCE THE SEQUESTER CUTS

WENT INTO EFFECT, PRESIDENT

OBAMA IS WATCHING HIS

APPROVAL RATING SLIP INTO

THE 40s.

THAT PROVES THAT AMERICANS

ARE TIRED OF INACTION IN

WASHINGTON.

SO NOW THE SPIN MACHINES ARE

SHIFTING INTO HIGH GEAR.

USING THE TWITTER HASHTAG,

G.O.P. SEQUESTER, DEMOCRATS

ARE PULLING OUT ALL THEIR

TOOLS TO BLAME REPUBLICANS

AND PAINT THEM AS OUT OF

TOUCH.

MEALS ON WHEELS IS

ANOTHER PROGRAM THAT COULD

BE AFFECT THE BY THE

SEQUESTER.

Reporter: REPUBLICANS,

MEANWHILE, ARE REMINDING

THEIR BASE THE SEQUESTER WAS

OBAMA'S IDEA.

President Obama: I WILL

VETO ANY EFFORT TO GET RID

OF THOSE AUTOMATIC SPENDING

CUTS.

IT IS SO TROUBLING JUST 10

DAYS FROM NOW CONGRESS MIGHT

ALLOW A SERIOUS OF

AUTOMATIC, SEVERE BUDGET

CUTS TO TAKE PLACE.

Reporter: THE G.O.P. IS

USING ITS SPIN MACHINE TO

PAINT OBAMA AS A

FLIP-FLOPPER.

IF THERE IS SUCH HAVOC

WREAKED, ALLEGEDLY, BY

SEQUESTER, IMAGINE WHAT THE

CRIES ARE GOING TO BE WHEN

WE'RE TACKLING ENTITLEMENT

REFORMS.

I THINK WE NEED TO GET RID

OF ALL OF THE RHETORIC, AND

BE HONEST THAT GOVERNMENT

HAS GOTTEN SO BIG AND WE

CANNOT CONTINUE TO SUSTAIN

TRILLION DEFICITS.

SPENDING IS THE PROBLEM, AND

SO SPENDING HAS TO BE

REDUCED.

Reporter: DAVID, AS YOU

KNOW, PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS AN

AMBITIOUS SECOND TERM

AGENDA, DEFICIT REDUCTION,

IMMIGRATION REFORM, GUN

CONTROL.

YOU CAN EXPECT HIM TO WORK

VERY HARD TO AVOID BECOMING

DAMAGED BY THE SEQUESTER.

David: JENNY IN THE

"B" BLOCK WHO IS IN THE ANCH

"A" BLOCK.

DO YOU GET PAID MORE IN THE

"A" BLOCK?

I DO.

David: AND HOW ABOUT A

STORE IN VIRGINIA THAT IS

GIVEN DISCOUNTS.

KATELYN BERK ALONG WITH THAT

STORY NEXT.

David: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE BRODY FILE."

THIS NEXT SEGMENT IS ABOUT

GUNS.

NOT TOP GUN OR NAKED GUN OR

ANNIE GET YOUR GUN -- I WENT

OLD SCHOOL THERE, BY THE

WAY.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT GUN

CONTROL AND CONGRESS.

WHERE ARE WE, EXACTLY?

SO FAR CALIFORNIA'S DEMOCRAT

SENATOR DIANNE FEINSTEIN HAS

HELD HEARINGS ON RENEWING AN

ASSAULT WEAPONS BAN, AND

THERE WILL BE MORE HEARINGS

ON SOME SORT OF

COMPREHENSIVE GUN CONTROL.

NOBODY IS SURE OF THE

UPCOME.

BUT THE PRESIDENT SAYS IF HE

HAS TO STEP IN AND DO

SOMETHING UNILATERALLY, HE

WILL.

President Obama: I'M

CONFIDENT THERE ARE SOME

STEPS WE CAN TAKE THAT DON'T

REQUIRE LEGISLATION AND

WITHIN MY AUTHORITY AS

PRESIDENT.

WHERE YOU GET A STEP THAT

HAS THE OPPORTUNITY TO

REDUCE THE

POSSIBILITY OF

GUN VIOLENCE, I WANT TO GO

AHEAD AND TAKE IT.

David: THE ISSUES OF

SEQUESTRATION AND

IMMIGRATION COULD PUSH GUN

CONTROL OUT OF THE HEADLINES

AND POLITICAL PICTURE.

WE ARE GOING TO MONITOR THAT

HERE AT "THE BRODY FILE."

HERE IS A QUESTION FOR YOU:

IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR A

COUPON, WHERE DO YOU GO?

SOME GO ONLINE, OTHERS GO TO

THE NEWSPAPER, BUT, WAIT,

STOP.

KATELYN BURKE HAS FOUND A

PLACE WHERE YOU DON'T NEED

ANY OF THAT.

YOU JUST NEED TO PACK A

LITTLE HEAT.

KATELYN, WHAT DID YOU FIND

OUT?

I'M HERE AT ALL AROUND

PIZZA IN VIRGINIA BEACH.

THIS USED TO BE A ONE-MAN

SHOP UNTIL A PROMOTION TO

PERCENT THE SECOND AMENDMENT

RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS CHANGED

EVERYTHING.

JAY IS PASSIONATE ABOUT

PIZZA AND GUNS.

HE IS COMBINING THE TWO IN

HIS NEW SPECIAL, A 15%

DISCOUNT FOR ANYONE WHO

BRINGS IN THEIR CONCEALED

CARRY PERMIT OR AN

OPEN-CARRY FIREARM.

HE SAYS HE GOT THE IDEA FROM

AN ICE CREAM SHOP IN UTAH.

WHEN I FOUND OUT THEY

WERE FROM UTAH, I WAS

WONDERING WHY NOBODY IN

VIRGINIA BEACH WAS DOING

THIS.

Reporter: VIRGINIA

BEACH IS A MILITARY

COMMUNITY.

TALK ABOUT BUSINESS BEFORE

THE PROMOTION AND BUSINESS

AFTER THE PROMOTION.

HAS IT REALLY BLOWN UP?

WHAT HAVE YOU SEEN?

BUSINESS HAS REALLY BLOWN

UP.

SO MUCH SUPPORT FOR THE

SECOND AMENDMENT COMING OUT

OF IT.

WE ACTUALLY ARE SEEING A

THOUSAND PERCENT INCREASE,

WHICH IS 10 TIMES THE AMOUNT

OF BUSINESS FROM BEFORE WE

STARTED.

Reporter: SINCE THE

SPECIAL BEGAN, HE AS ABOUT

95% OF HIS COSTUMERS SHOW

THEIR CONCEALED CARRY

PERMITS OR HAVE AN

OPEN-CARRY FIREARM.

AND HE IS

GETTING MORE THAN

JUST LOCAL SUPPORT.

MAJOR MEDIA NETWORKS ARE

THREADING THE STORY ACROSS

THE COUNTRY.

ONCE THIS DISCOUNT STARTED

TO GET NATIONAL ATTENTION,

HE GOT SOME PRETTY LONG

DISTANCE COSTUMERS.

THIS PARTICULAR ORDER WAS

SENT IN FROM CALIFORNIA BY

CALACO LIGHT ARMED

MANUFACTURER RER.

SINCE THEY COULDN'T BE HERE,

THEY WANTED TO SUPPORT US BY

BUYING FIVE LARGE PIZZAS,

AND TO HELP OUR COMMUNITY

OUT BY DONATING IT TO A

HOMELESS SHELTER.

Reporter: WHY IS IT

IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO SUPPORT

THE SECOND AMENDMENT, RIGHT

TO BEAR ARMS?

IT IS IMPORTANT TO ME

BECAUSE IT IS BUILT INTO THE

FRAMEWORK OF OUR

GOVERNMENT.

WITHOUT IT, I BELIEVE THAT

THE SYSTEM WOULDN'T WORK

BECAUSE THE SECOND AMENDMENT

IS THE ONLY INSURANCE THAT

WE HAVE AGAINST THE

GOVERNMENT BEING TOO

OPPRESSIVE ON THE PEOPLE.

Reporter: AND HE HAS

BEEN ALSO REACHING OUT TO

OTHER BUSINESSES IN THE

AREA, HOPING THAT THEY'LL

JOIN HIM IN TAKING A STAND

FOR THE SECOND AMENDMENT.

David: VERY NICE.

DON'T MESS WITH TEXAS, AND

DON'T MESS WITH THAT GUY,

EITHER.

WHEN WE COME BACK, THE

CURIOUS CASE OF CHRIS

CHRISTIE.

WHY HE IS IN TROUBLE WITH

CONSERVATIVES.

BACK IN A MOMENT.

David: AND WELCOME

BACK TO THE BRODY FILE.

WE HAVE GOT A CHOCK FULL OF

EVANGELICAL ITEMS IN THIS

BLOCK, SO YOU KNOW WHAT THAT

MEANS, RIGHT?

TIME TO CRANK UP EVANGELICAL

APPS.

MAYBE WE SHOULD HAVE CRANKED

UP THE CATHOLIC APP BECAUSE

WE BEGIN WITH THE POPE.

THE POPE HAS SAID

ARRIVEDERCI TO THE VATICAN.

HE IS NOW OFFICIALLY RETIRED

IN BOCCA DOWN IN FLORIDA,

NO, HE IS NOT THERE.

HE IS STILL IN ITALY.

MORE THAN 100 CARDINALS ARE

GETTING SET TO LOCK

THEMSELVES IN A ROOM AND

PLAY SCRABBLE AND ELECT A

NEW POPE.

IF YOU'RE UNDER 80, YOU'RE

IN THE ROOM.

IF YOU'RE OVER 80, YOU DON'T

GET AN INVITE.

CHURCH OFFICIALS HOPE TO

HAVE A NEW POPE IN PLACE

BEFORE EASTER.

HERE IS A TRANSITION FOR

YOU: FROM THE GODLY TO THE

GODLESS.

CHECK OUT THESE BILLBOARD

PICTURES NOW APPEARING IN

TEXAS, OF ALL PLACES.

AMERICAN ATHEISTS ARE

STARTING A NEW CAMPAIGN

CALLED "GO GODLESS

INSTEAD."

THAT'S RIGHT.

THEY ARE USING QUOTES FROM

FAMOUS POLITICIANS IN THEIR

VIEWS ON HOMOSEXUAL.

AND IT INVITES PEOPLE TO

THEIR 50th CONVENTION IN

AUSTIN, TEXAS.

IT FEATURES A BIG DINNER AND

A COMEDY SHOW.

OF COURSE "THE BRODY FILE"

IS CONFUSED BECAUSE WE

THOUGHT THE BILLBOARDS WERE

THE REAL COMEDY SHOW.

ONE GUY SERIOUS ABOUT

PROTECTING TRADITIONAL

MARRIAGE IS GLEN GRUHAGEN,

WHO SAYS THE GAY LIFESTYLE

IS A CHOICE AND A FORM OF

SEXUAL ADDICTION.

HERE HE IS TALKING ABOUT THE

MARRIAGE ISSUE.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT GAY

MARRIAGE.

WE'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT AN

IMMUTABLE CHARACTERISTIC,

LIKE THE COLOR OF YOUR

SKIN.

THE HUMAN GEENOM MAP WAS

COMPLETED IN 2003.

THERE IS NO GAY GENE.

SO THE CONCEPT YOUR BORN

THAT WAY, AND IT IS AN

IMMUTABLE CHARACTERISTIC IS

AN UNSCIENTIFIC LIE.

David: HE IS NOT

HOLDING ANYTHING BACK AT THE

PODIUM IN MINNESOTA.

AS A MATTER OF FACT, IT IS

ALSO TIME FOR "THE BRODY

FILE" NOT TO HOLD ANYTHING

BACK, EITHER.

AND THAT MEANS A BRODY FILE

COMMENTARY.

LET'S START WITH THIS, "THE

BRODY FILE" IS A SINNER.

I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU, BUT

I SIN EVERY DAY.

SO, LOOK, WHEN EVANGELICAL

CHRISTIANS LIKE MYSELF SAY

THAT HOMOSEXUALITY IS A SIN,

WE'RE NOT TRYING TO MAKE THE

SIN OF BEING GAY ANY

DIFFERENT THAN OUR SINS.

THE DIFFERENCE IS

REPENTANCE.

THOSE WHO HAVE COME TO KNOW

JESUS CHRIST IN A REAL AND

PERSONAL WAY HAVE BEEN

FORGIVEN OF THEIR SINS, AND

THEY ARE WASHED AWAY BY THE

BLOOD OF CHRIST.

THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU

HAVE A BORN-AGAIN

EXPERIENCE.

TRUE BIBLE-BELIEVING

CHRISTIANS DESPERATELY WANT

TO SEE HOMOSEXUALS TURN AWAY

FROM A SIMPLE LIFESTYLE AND

BEGIN A NEW LIFE WITH

CHRIST.

WE AS CHRISTIANS HATE THE

SIN, BUT WE DON'T HATE THE

SINNER.

FOR THOSE WHO DO HATE THE

SINNER, SHAME ON YOU.

THE TRUTH IN ALL OF THIS

LIES IN THE BIBLE.

GOD'S WORD IS CLEAR WHEN IT

COMES TO THE FACT THAT

MARRIAGE SHOULD BE BETWEEN

ONE MAN AND ONE WOMAN.

THERE IS NO WAY AROUND IT,

DESPITE THE EFFORTS OF

MANY.

GOD WANTS YOU TO LIVE A LIFE

WITH HIM FOR ALL OF

ETERNITY, AND EVANGELICALS

WANT THAT, TOO.

SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT.

ALL RIGHT, LOOK, THIS WHOLE

GAY MARRIAGE DEBATE HAS SOME

CONSERVATIVES SPLIT.

YOU HAVE THE OLDER SET, WHO

YOU MO MORE TRADITIONAL,

SET IN THEIR WAYS.

AND YOU HAVE THE YOUNGER

VOTES, WHO DESPITE

CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICANS,

DON'T SEE ANYTHING WRONG

WITH BEING GAY.

SO THAT LEADS US TO MSNB C

C COMMENTATOR.

BECAUSE ORGANIZERS WON'T LET

A G.O.P. GAY GROUP ATTEND,

SHE HAS HAD SECOND

THOUGHTS.

I WORKED WITH "GO PROUD"

AND REPUBLICANS FOR A

WHILE.

THESE ARE SOME OF THE

HARDEST WORKING

CONSERVATIVES IN THE

BUSINESS.

THESE ARE PEOPLE WHO HAVE

STRUGGLED TO RE RECONCILE

THEIR PRIVATE LIVES WITH

THEIR POLITICAL LIVES, AND

HOW THEY MAKE SENSE OF

THAT.

THEY HAVE HAD TO WORK HARDER

THAN MANY OF US IN THE

MOVEMENT TO SORT OF COME

OUT, REPRESENT THEIR

CONSERVATIVE IDEALS, WHICH

FOR THE MOST PART, YOU KNOW,

DISCUSS FISCAL POLICIES AND

FISCAL ISSUES, AND STILL

STAND UP AND BE PROUD

CONSERVATIVES.

AND WE ARE ESSENTIALLY

TELLING THEM WE'RE A LITTLE

ASHAMED OF YOU.

WE WOULD LIKE YOU TO COME,

BUT DON'T BE TOO LOUD ABOUT

IT.

GO DO THIS IN THE BACK

ROOM.

I DON'T THINK THAT'S RIGHT.

I'VE BEEN THINKING ABOUT

THIS A LOT, AND I KNOW A LOT

OF PEOPLE ON MY SIDE OF THE

AISLE HAVE BEEN STRUGGLING

WITH THIS FOR SOME TIME NOW,

TOO.

I'VE BEEN SCHEDULED TO SPEAK

THIS YEAR, AND I DON'T THINK

I CAN UNTIL HIS ISSUE IS

RECONCILED AND FIGURED OUT.

David: YOU KNOW WHO

ELSE WON'T BE AT C-PAC,

CHRIS CHRISTIE.

CONSERVATIVES ORGANIZERS

DECIDED NOT TO INVITE HIM

AFTER SOME OF HIS SPOTTY

MOVES THAT WENT AGAINST

CONSERVATIVE IDEOLOGY.

LIKE ACCEPTING THE

OBAMACARE.

I WISH THEM ALL OF THE

BEL.

THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE THEIR

CONFERENCE.

THEY DON'T WANT TO INVITE

ME, THAT'S THEIR

PREROGATIVE.

IT IS NOT LIKE I'M LACKING

FOR INVITATIONS TO SPEAK.

David: WHEN WE COME

BACK, IF YOU THINK CHRIS

CHRISTIE IS AN OUTCAST, WAIT

UNTIL YOU GET THE OY-VEY

MOMENT OF THE WEEK.

BACK IN A MOMENT.

David: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE BRODY FILE."

BEFORE WE LEAVE YOU THIS

WEEK, LET'S GET RIGHT TO

THIS WEEK'S INCREDIBLY

NAUSEATING OY-VEY MOMENT OF

THE WEEK.

*

David: THE WINNER

HANDS DOWN IS FORMER NBA

PLAYER DENNIS RODMAN, WHO

PLAYED A VISIT TO NORTH

KOREA'S YOUNG DICTATOR.

DENNIS, ARE YOU NUTS?

WATCH THESE CLIPS.

HE IS A GREAT GUY.

YOU SIT DOWN AND TALK TO

HIM.

PERCEPTION IS PERCEIVING.

A GREAT GUY PUTS 200,000

PEOPLE IN PRISON CAMPS.

GUESS WHAT, IT IS AMAZING

HOW WE DO THE SAME THING

HERE.

WE HAVE PRISON CAMPS HERE

IN THE UNITED STATES?

THIS IS ALL POLITICS,

RIGHT.

THIS IS ALL POLITICS,

RIGHT.

HE DON'T WANT TO DO THAT.

THE NEXT TIME YOU GO

BACK, BRING THIS REPORT FROM

HUMAN RIGHTS WATCH AND ASK

HIM QUESTIONS ABOUT THAT.

YOU MIGHT LEARN A LOT MORE.

THANK YOU FOR COMING ON THIS

MORNING AND SHARING.

EITHER WAY, GUESS WHAT?

GUESS WHAT?

THANK YOU FOR THE REPORT.

DON'T HATE ME.

David: DENNIS RODMAN

HAS MADE "THE BRODY FILE"

SPEECHLESS, AND THAT IS NOT

AN EASY THING TO DO.

UNTIL NEXT WEEK, GOD BLESS.

HAVE A GREAT WEEK.
