DAVID: THIS WEEK ON "THE

BRODY FILE," LOTS OF FRUSTRATION

ON CAPITOL HILL.

AMNESTY OR NOT.

WE ARE GOING TO TALK ONE ON ONE

WITH A GANG MEMBER, SENATOR

LYNDSEY GRAHAM.

ALSO D-DAY APPROACHING FOR BOY

SCOUTS, WILL THEY ALLOW THEM IN

OR NOT?

WE DON'T STOP LOVING THEM.

DAVID: LIBERAL ALERT, LIBERAL

ALERT.

"WASHINGTON POST" COLUMNIST DANA

MILLBERT.

HE HAS TOUGH WORDS FOR THE

PRESIDENT.

WHATEVER THE AGENDA IS --

DAVID: PLUS CHRIS CRISTY

TURNS INTO SPIDERMAN, WE HAVE

THE VIDEO TO PROVE IT.

WELCOME EVERY TO ANOTHER

AWARD WINNING EPISODE OF "THE

BRODY FILE."

PROUD TO BE THE INNERS OF NINE

EMMY AWARDS.

DAVID, WE ARE NOT AN AWARD

WINNING SHOW.

DAVID: SORRY, FOLKS, I SAID

SOMETHING THAT WAS NOT TRUE.

I AM JUST DOING WHAT THE STATE

DEPARTMENT IS DOING ON BEN

BENGHAZI, SEE ME.

ON TO OUR TOP STORIES.

WE CALL IT CAPITOL HILL VERSION

OF IMMIGRATION FRUSTRATION?

FOLKS IMMIGRATION DEBATE IS

UNDERWAY ON CAPITOL HILL.

WE HAVE A LOT MORE QUESTIONS

THAN ANSWERS.

FOR EXAMPLE, CAN THE SENATE GET

70 VOTES OR MORE TO SHOW

STRENGTH SO THE BILL WOULD BE

ABLE TO PASS THE HOUSE.

WILL THE HOUSE PASS THE BILL?

WHAT WOULD IT LOOK LIKE?

WOULD CONTROVERSY AMENDMENTS

SINK THE BILL.

WHAT IS THE SECRET HAND SHAKE

BETWEEN INFAMOUS GANG OF EIGHT.

JOINING US, SENATOR LINDSEY

GRAM, GANG OF EIGHT.

WE ARE PRETTY CONFIDENT WE

COULDN'T HURT OURSELVES.

PROUD TO HAVE BEEN IN THE GANG

OF EIGHT.

CALL IT WHAT YOU LIKE.

DAVID: WITH ALL THE STRAIGHT

SHOOTERS, YOU ARE ONE OF THEM

FOR SURE.

LET'S GET DOWN TO THE

NITTY-GRITTY, HOW CAN YOU TELL

IF THIS GETS 70 VOTES OR MORE?

THIS IS THE MAGIC NUMBER TO GET

IT THROUGHOUT HOUSE?

I THINK SO.

QUALITY OF THE PRODUCT.

FROM A REPUBLICAN POINT OF VIEW,

AFTER 2012 WHEN YOU GET 27% OF

THE HISPANIC VOTE YOU ASK PEOPLE

WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?

CONSERVATIVES ISN'T THE PROBLEM,

2006 UP TO 2012, THE WAY WE

TALKED ABOUT THE PROBLEM HAS NOT

HELP US.

HARD TO GET PEOPLE TO LISTEN TO

YOUR ECONOMIC ARTICLE,

ENTREPRENEURIAL ARGUMENT IF THEY

THINK YOU ARE GOING TO DEPORT

THEIR GRANDMOTHER.

THIS GAY RIGHTS MOVEMENT, IS

THAT A DEAL KILLER.

THE CATHOLIC CHURCH WILL NOT

SUPPORT A BILL THAT TURNS

EFFORTS TO REFORM IMMIGRATION

INTO A SAME-SEX MARRIAGE DEBATE.

THAT IS NOT GOING TO -- THE

MARKET WILL NOT BEAR THAT.

WE'LL HAVE THAT DEBATE APART

FROM IMMIGRATION.

I TOLD MY DEMOCRATIC COLLEAGUES,

EVANGELICAL COMMUNITY HAS BEEN

SO HELPFUL, WE'LL LOSE THEM AND

THE CATHOLIC CHURCH AND ME IF WE

TURN THE DEBATE INTO SAME-SEX

BENEFITS.

DAVID: LET ME ASK YOU ABOUT

THE EVANGELICAL MOVEMENT, A ROAD

TO DAMASCUS MOVEMENT, WHAT HAS

BEEN YOUR SENSE ABOUT HOW

CRUCIAL THEY ARE TO ALL OF THIS.

I THINK EVANGELICAL CHURCHES,

CONSERVATIVE POLITICIANS

REALIZE, WE HAVE A RAEM

OPPORTUNITY TO OPPORTUNITY TO

CONNECT WITH THE PEOPLE.

THEY ARE VERY PATRIOTIC.

THIS IMMIGRATION DEBATE HAS HURT

US.

WE NEED TO GET IT BEHIND US.

EVANGELICAL SUPPORT IN SOUTH

CAROLINA HAS CHANGED EVERYTHING

FOR ME AT HOME.

DAVID: I WOULD THINK,

EVANGELICAL COMMUNITY IF THEY

WERE NOT ON BOARD THERE WOULD BE

ALL SORTS OF PROBLEMS?

ABSOLUTELY.

WHEN I HAVE PASTORS COME FORWARD

AND READ PASSAGES FROM THE

BIBLE, WE ARE GOING TO BE

PRACTICAL.

I DON'T THINK SELF-DEPORTATION

WORKS.

WOULD YOU SIT ON THE SIDELINE

AND WATCH YOUR GRANDMOTHER WALK

BACK TO MEXICO IN AN EFFORT TO

SELF-DEPORT 11 MILLION PEOPLE?

THEY HAVE CHILDREN AND

GRANDCHILDREN AMERICAN CITIZENS.

THAT IS NOT A PRACTICAL

SOLUTION.

GETTING PEOPLE INTO OUR COUNTRY

ON OUR TERMS, LEARNING THE

LANGUAGE, GETTING AT THE BACK OF

THE LINE.

EVANGELICAL SUPPORT, THEY WANT

TO BE PRACTICAL AND RECOGNIZE

THESE PEOPLE ARE HUMAN BEINGS.

DAVID: LET ME QUOTE

SHAKESPEARE AMNESTY OR NO

AMNESTY.

CLEAR THIS UP, TWO COMPETING

VIEWS.

AMNESTY IS WHAT WE ARE DOING,

2006, THERE HAS BEEN NO EFFORT

TO FIX IMMIGRATION, 11 MILLION

PEOPLE ARE NOT GOING TO BE

DEPORTED THROUGH

SELF-DEPORTATIONS.

YOU'LL HAVE AMNESTY FOREVER

UNLESS YOU ADDRESS THIS PROBLEM.

DAVID: LET US NOT FORGET

ABOUT ANOTHER BIG STORY, WILL

THE BOY SCOUTS BE PRESSURED TO

ALLOW GAY SCOUT MEMBERS TO BE

PART OF THE ORGANIZATION?

IT IS COMING SOON.

KATELYN?

THAT'S RIGHT, DAVID, VERY FEW

NON-RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATIONS THAT

HAVE CAVED TO BE POLITICALLY

CORRECT.

BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA COULD BE

THE NEXT TO FALL.

BOY SCOUTS ARE KNOWN TO

COMMITMENT OF GOD, COMMUNITY.

NOW CONSIDERING A NEW POLICY.

THEY WOULD ALLOW OPENLY TROOP

MEMBERS TO JOIN AND THAT WOULD

COMPROMISE SCOUTING.

WE JOINED SCOUTS, WE LIKE THE

LEADERSHIP MODEL, LIKE WHAT THEY

TEACH AND I THINK IF YOU

INTRODUCE THIS WHOLE HOMOSEXUAL

IDEA, IT BECOMES THE FOCUS, THE

FEAR, THE AWKWARD SITUATION.

IT TAKES AWAY FROM WHAT THE BOYS

ARE THERE FOR.

75% OF THE ORGANIZATIONS ARE

CHARTERED.

WE SPOKE WITH LOCAL PASTORS TO

WHAT THEY THINK THE RESPONSE

SHOULD BE.

JESUS WAS FAITHFUL TO SPEAK

INTO THE LIVES OF PEOPLE.

TRUTH SOMETIMES THEY WEREN'T

PREPARED TO HEAR.

SOMETIMES TRUTH THEY DIDN'T EVEN

KNOW.

HE WOULD DO SO WITH A HEART OF

LOVE AND RESPECT FOR THEIR

VALUE.

CHURCHED CALLED TO BE ENGAGED

WITH ITS CULTURE AND THE LIVES

OF EVERYBODY.

THAT MEANS IN WAYS WE HAVE

UNDERSTOOD IN THE PAST AND WAYS

THEY HAVE YET TO BE PLAYED OUT.

WE HAVE RELATIVES IN THAT

LIFE STYLE, DO WE STOP LOVING

THEM?

NO.

BUT WE HAVE TO TELL THEM THE

TRUTH.

RECENT BOY SCOUTS AMERICA

SURVEY SHOWS MAJORITY OF MEMBERS

SUPPORT KEEPING THE CURRENT

POLICY.

IN 2000, SUPREME COURT RULED THE

ORGANIZATION IS WITHIN ITS

RIGHTS TO BAN OPENLY GAY PEOPLE

FROM PARTICIPATING.

NOW IT IS UP TO 1400 VOTING

MEMBERS OF NATIONAL COUNCIL TO

DECI

DECIDE.

DAVID THE VOTE IS SCHEDULED

FOR MAY 23RD.

DAVID: ALL RIGHT, WE ARE

GOING TO CHECK BACK FOR A FOLLOW

UP.

THIS BOY SCOUTS CONTROVERSY GOT

"THE BRODY FILE" THINKING AND

THAT LEADS TO A "THE BRODY FILE"

COMMENTARY.

LOOK, LET ME STATE THIS UP

FRONT, TWO SONS WHO ARE BOTH

EAGLE SCOUTS.

AS A DAD ON PLENTY OF CAMP OUTS,

I KNOW A THING OR TWO ABOUT THE

BOY SCOUTS.

HERE IS THE DIRTY SECRET.

THE REASON IT IS CALLED

HOMOSEXUALITY BECAUSE MEN ARE

ATTRACTED TO OTHER MEN, NOT

EMOTIONALLY ATTRACTED TO -- WHEN

YOU ARE ON AN OVERNIGHT CAMP

OUT, THAT IS GOING TO MAKE

HETEROSEXUAL FOLKS

UNCOMFORTABLE.

IT IS THE PLAIN TRUTH.

ALL THE TALK IS ABOUT HOW IF BOY

SCOUTS NEED TO BE COLLUSIVE OF

GAY SCOUTS.

HETEROSEXUAL SCOUTS MIGHT FEEL

UNCOMFORTABLE.

NOBODY TALKS ABOUT THAT.

LOOK THE REALITY IS, THE BOY

SCOUTS ARE A PRIVATE

ORGANIZATION.

THEY CAN DO WHATEVER THEY WANT.

WE ARE NOT TALKING ABOUT TAX

PAYOR FUNDED MONEY HERE, EITHER.

70% OF THE BOY SCOUTS GROUPS ARE

CHARTERED THROUGH FAITH BASED

ORGANIZATIONS OR CHURCHES.

COME ON, EVERYBODY, GIVE THE BOY

SCOUTS A BREAK.

ISN'T WINNING ON THE GAY

MARRIAGE ENOUGH FOR HOMOSEXUAL

ACTIVIST?

APPARENTLY NOT.

WHEN WE COME BACK, STOP THE

PRESSES, ARE THEY READING THE

BIBLE ON CAPITOL HILL?

SOMEONE GIVE ME A SEDATIVE.

WE HAVE THE STORY NEXT.

DAVID: WELCOME BACK TO "THE

BRODY FILE" EVERYBODY.

FOR YOU LOYAL "THE BRODY FILE"

VIEWERS, NORMALLY THIS SEGMENT

IS RESERVED FOR JENNY AND THE B

BLOCK.

NO JENNY, SORRY.

AS OUR PRODUCER TRACEY WINBORN

DECLARED IN AN E-MAIL, QUOTE,

EVEN JENNY NEEDS TO TAKE A BREAK

FROM THE BLOCK.

HOW TRUE IN DEED.

SHE IS DOING ZUMBA CLASSES AND

NASCAR RACES.

WE HAVE NO IDEA WHERE SHE WAS.

"THE BRODY FILE" HAS TO GO ON.

TIME FOR THIS WEEK ES

EVANGELICAL APP.

WE BEGIN WITH A RARE SIGHTING,

NO NOT BIG VOTE, HOW ABOUT BIBLE

READING MARATHON, 90 CONTINUOUS

HOURS FROM GENESIS TO

REVELATION.

YES, THIS IS ACTUALLY A U.S.

GOVERNMENT-SANCTIONED EVENT.

THERE IS A REAL JOINT

CONGRESSIONAL RESOLUTION.

ATHEISTS ARE CHECKING INTO REHAB

AS WE SPEAK.

OUR "THE BRODY FILE" JOURNALIST

MARK BAUTISTA WAS THERE.

OH LORD, OPEN MY LIPS, MY

MOUTH SHALL SHOW FORTH YOUR

PRAISES.

EVERY BEAST OF THE FOREST IS

MINE AND CATTLE ON A THOUSAND

HILLS.

IT IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE WORD

OF GOD IS IMPORTANT.

FOUNDATION OF THIS COUNTRY THAT

HOLDS SO DEAR.

IT IS PRETTY AWESOME.

I AM A SPIRITUAL PERSON.

IT IS AMAZING THEY ARE OUT HERE.

HEAR MY PRAYER, OH GOD.

I HAVE A DAUGHTER ALMOST

FOUR.

I HAVE BEEN THINKING ABOUT

RETURNING TO CHURCH.

I GREW UP CHRISTIAN.

I HAVE BEEN THINKING OF

RETURNING TO CHURCH FOR HER.

I DEFINITELY WOULD PICK UP A

BIBLE AND START TO READ BECAUSE

OF THIS.

WE WANT PEOPLE TO READ IT

DEVOTIONALLY.

VERY IMPORTANT TO READ IT

PUBLICALLY.

WE KEEP READING.

GIVE EAR TO MY PRAYER, GOD.

DAVID: LET'S MOVE ON TO A FEW

OTHER FAITH BASED STORIES.

REPORTS OUT OF BOSTON, SOME

CLERGY MEMBERS WERE NOT ALLOWED

ACCESS, THEY WERE TURNED AWAY.

THAT HAD TO SET UP PRAYER

STATIONS AWAY FROM THE SCENE,

OY-GEVALT.

SENATORS CAN NOW BE PROSECUTED

FOR SHARING FAITH.

NOW THAT BORN AGAIN WEAR IT ON

YOUR SLEEVE, TIM TEBOW HAS BEEN

CUT, JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS FANS

ARE PETITIONING THE WHITE HOUSE

TO SIGN TEBOW.

WHITE HOUSE OFFICIAL ONLINE

PETITION PLATFORM CALLED, WE THE

PEOPLE STATE THAT YOU NEED TO

COLLECT 100,000 SIGNATURES

BEFORE THE WHITE HOUSE IS GOING

TO RESPOND TO YOUR REQUEST.

THINK NEED IT BY MAY 30TH.

THEY HAVE GRAND TOTAL OF 329.

TAKING THE PRESIDENT TO TASK,

CONVERSATION WITH DANA MILLBANK.

THAT IS NEXT.

úú

DAVID: WELCOME TO "THE BRODY

FILE."

WE SIT DOWN WITH BOTH

CONSERVATIVES AND LIBERALS, WE

INTERVIEWED BARACK OBAMA OBAMA,

HILARY CLINTON, AND HAIRY REED

AND AL FRANKEN.

THIS WEEK WE ARE JOINED BY DANA

MILBANK, COLUMNIST FOR

"WASHINGTON POST." HE COMES AT

THINGS FROM A LIBERAL

PERSPECTIVE AND FUNNY IN HIS

WRITINGS.

IT MAKES FOR GREAT INFORMATIVE

AND ENTERTAINING READ.

HE WROTE A COLUMN CALLED

PRESIDENTIAL BYSTANDER.

HE TAKES A PRESIDENT TO TASK

OVER HOW HIS SECOND TERM IS

PROCEEDING.

100 DAYS INTO HIS SECOND TERMS,

OBAMA LOST CONTROL OF THE AGENDA

IF HE EVER LOST CONTROL IN THE

FIRST PLACE.

TALK ABOUT THAT AS IT RELATES TO

PRESIDENT OBAMA AND SECOND TERM.

WE HAVE A PRESIDENT JUST

ELECTED TO SECOND TERM, HE

SHOULD BE AT A STRONG POINT.

HE CALLED THAT NEWS CONFERENCE

WEREN'T SURE.

IT WAS LIKE IF HE WAS SAYING

LOOK, I CAN'T GET ANYTHING

THROUGH, IT IS ALL A MESS ON

CAPITOL HILL.

I CAN ASK HIM TO DO THINGS,

LOBBY THEM, I CAN'T MAKE THEM DO

THE RIGHT THING.

DAVID: SEEMS LIKE THIS IS HIS

PERSONALITY.

HE IS NOT GOING TO STAND UP AND

DO A JIMMY SMITH THING.

HE KEPT ON IT ALONG TIME.

WHEN HE WANTS TO PUT THE FIGHT

INTO SOMETHING HE WILL.

HE DID IT ON GUN CONTROL

INTERMITTENTLY.

PRESIDENTIAL LEADERSHIP MAY NOT

BE AS POWERFUL A TOOL AS IT ONCE

WAS BECAUSE THERE ARE A LOT OF

PEOPLE ON CAPITOL HILL WITH

INCENTIVE TO DEFY HIM.

IT IS THE STRONGEST THING WE

HAVE GOT.

REGARDLESS OF WHAT PARTY IS IN

POWER.

BEST TOOL IS PRESIDENTIAL

LEADERSHIP.

DAVID: YOU SAID PRESIDENCY,

SOME WHAT OF A DEMISE OF THAT

SECOND TERM.

WHERE IS HE ON THIS LEGACY

SEARCH?

WHAT IS YOUR SENSE?

IT IS STILL VERY EARLY.

IF HE LEAVES OFFICE A FEW YEARS

FROM NOW AND ECONOMY BOOMING AND

SOME HOW MANAGED TO PUT TOGETHER

A BUDGET DEAL, HE COULD BE A

CELEBRATED FIGURE MUCH THE WAY

BILL CLINTON IS TODAY.

DAVID: DO YOU THINK THERE IS

A DISAPPOINTMENT?

DISAPPOINTED THEY DIDN'T GET

MORE ON GUN CONTROL.

SEE IMMIGRATION NOT WORKING ON.

BUDGET THE PRESIDENT PUT FORWARD

I THINK WAS A FAIRLY REASONABLE

DOCUMENT.

HE MADE SACRIFICE ON THE

ENTITLEMENT PLANS.

LIBERALS ARE ABSOLUTELY UP IN

ARMS SAYING HE IS SURRENDERING

BEFORE NEGOTIATIONS.

HE GETS CREDIT FOR DEFYING HIS

OWN BASE.

NOT MUCH FROM THE REPUBLICANS.

HE IS TAKING A STEP.

DAVID: YOUR ARTICLES ARE

FASCINATING, THEY ARE

FACT-BASED, YET THERE IS THAT

HUMOR AS WELL.

YOU ROLL IT ALL INTO ONE.

WHAT IS YOUR PHILOSOPHY?

I LIKE TO COVER WASHINGTON AS

IF I AM A FOREIGN CORRESPONDENT.

YOU CAN RELATE TO THAT IF YOU

LOOK AT THE REST OF THE COUNTRY.

THEY THINK IT IS A FOREIGN

COUNTRY.

NOTHING MAKES SENSE, NOTHING

WORKS QUITE RIGHT, WE ARE SOME

THIRD WORLD CIVILIZATION.

I AM TRYING TO EXPLAIN THAT.

IT IS FUNNY.

IT IS TRAGIC THINGS ARE SO

BROKEN.

IF YOU ARE GOING TO MOAN ABOUT

HOW AWFUL THE SITUATION IS.

YOU ARE GOING TO BE VERY

DEPRESSED AND SECOND, YOU ARE

NOT GOING TO BE VERY INTERESTING

TO READ, YOU ARE GOING TO BECOME

PIAS AND PREACHY.

DAVID: DANA MILBANK ON "THE

BRODY FILE."

ONE THING THEY CAN AGREE ON

CONSERVE TIFRS AND LIBERALS, HE

IS A GOOD DAD.

HE IS NOT A BIG FAN OF KIDS

GETTING TATTOOS.

HE WAS ASKED WHAT WOULD HAPPEN

IF HIS DAUGHTERS WANTED ONE.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: WHAT WE SAID

IF YOU DECIDE TO GET A TATTOO,

MOMMY AND ME WILL GET THE SAME

TATTOO AND GO ON YOUTUBE AND

SHOW IT OFF AS A FAMILY TATTOO.

MY THINKING IS IT IS A WAY TO

DISSUADE THEM.

DAVID: MR. PRESIDENT "THE

BRODY FILE" SALUTES YOU AND

AGREE.

WE ARE BACK IN A MOMENT WITH OUR

OY-GEVALT MOMENT.

@@

DAVID: WELCOME BACK TO "THE

BRODY FILE."

"THE BRODY FILE" IS THE SON OF

AN EXTERMINATED.

THAT'S RIGHT, MY FATHER WAS A

PEST CONTROL OPERATOR.

HE WAS GOOD.

SO WITH A NOD TO MY LATE FATHER,

HE WOULD HAVE LOVED THIS WEEK'S

OY-GEVALT MOMENT OF THE WEEK.

*

IF NEW JERSEY GOVERNOR CHRIS

CHRISTIE ISN'T IN TROUBLE AGAIN,

NO NOT WITH CONSERVATIVES.

HE IS IN TROUBLE WITH THE PETA

PEOPLE.

PEOPLE FOR THE ETHICAL TREATMENT

OF ANIMALS.

ANGRY ABOUT HIS ENCOUNTER WITH A

SPIDER DURING A PHOTO OP WITH

SCHOOL KIDS IN THE GOVERNOR'S

OFFICE.

HAVE A LOOK.

[LAUGHTER].

[APPLAUSE]

DAVID: HIS SPIDERMAN MOVE GOT

THE REACTION FROM PETA.

THEY UNDERSTAND SPIDERS ARE

SCARY, IT CAN PREVENT PEOPLE

LIKE CHRIS CHRISTIE FROM

PONDERING THE WORTH OF A SPIDER.

FOLKS AT PETA, TO LOSE AN 80S

EXPRESSION, TAKE A CHILL PILL.

THAT DOES
