The Brody File: Marco Rubio and the Oscars - March 6, 2014

Senator Marco Rubio isn't going to win an Academy Award for Best Actor but he might just be the GOP nominee for President of the United States. The Brody File talks to him up on Capitol Hill. Plus, John Jessup reviews the Oscar nominated film, ... Read Transcript


David: THIS WEEK ON

"THE BRODY FILE," HE COULD

BE THE REPUBLICAN NOMINEE

FOR PRESIDENT.

ONE-ON-ONE WITH SENATOR MARX

MAR MARCO RUBIO.

BELIEVE IT NEEDS TO BE

THE HOME OF OPPORTUNITY.

David: ALSO, WINNING

THE PRO-LIFE BATTLE IN NORTH

DAKOTA.

A REPORT FROM THE FRONT

LINE.

60% TO 70% SAY ABORTION

IS IMMORAL AT ALL STAGES, NO

MATTER WHAT.

SO WE'RE DOING GREAT STRIDES

IN THE NORTHERN STATES.

David: PLUS, USHERING

IN THE BARACK OBAMA

DYNASTY.

"THE BRODY FILE" IS NEXT.

David: AND WELCOME,

EVERYBODY, TO ANOTHER

EDITION OF "THE BRODY

FILE."

WE'RE IN THE STUDIO AGAIN.

I'VE GOT TO TELL YOU, A MEMO

TO THE PRODUCER, TRACY,

WE'VE GOT TO GET OUT ON THE

ROAD AGAIN SOON.

IT IS TIME TO GET "THE BRODY

FILE" VAN CRANKED UP SO WE

CAN LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL

AND START SINGING ON THE

ROAD, LIKE THESE GUYS.

* WELL, I'VE HAD THE TIME OF

MY LIFE *

* THOUGH I NEVER FELT THIS

WAY BEFORE *

* NEVER FELT THIS WAY

BEFORE *

* I SWEAR IT'S THE TRUTH,

AND I OWE IT ALL TO YOU *

David: NOW THOSE ARE

GOOD TIMES RIGHT THERE.

WE'RE LOOKING FORWARD TO

THAT.

IN THE MEANTIME, WE BEGIN

THIS WEEK WITH A MAN WHO

COULD BE PRESIDENT OF THE

UNITED STATES.

NO, NOT MATTHEW

MCCONAUGHEY.

WRONG SLIDE.

SORRY.

IT'S THIS GUY, SENATOR MARCO

RUBIO FROM FLORIDA.

HE IS POLLING WELL IN

PRELIMINARY 2016

PRESIDENTIAL POLLS -- THAT'S

TOUGH TO SAY.

ALL OF THIS DESPITE TRIPPING

UP ON IMMIGRATION REFORM, A

MOVE THAT LANDED HIM IN SOME

HOT WATER WITH

CONSERVATIVES.

STILL, IF HE RUNS, WHICH

SEEMS LIKELY.

HE WILL BE A FORMIDABLE

OPPONENT FOR ANY

FRONT-RUNNER.

HERE ARE A FEW CLIPS FROM

OUR INTERVIEW WITH THE

SENATOR, WHERE HE TALKS

ABOUT 2016, IMMIGRATION

REFORM, AND A NEW U.N.

REPORT THAT WAS CRITICAL OF

THE CATHOLIC CHURCH.

I HAVE A JOB RIGHT NOW,

AND I NEED TO FOCUS ON DOING

THAT JOB.

I BELIEVE IF YOU DO A GOOD

JOB AT WHATEVER JOB YOU

HAVE, YOU HAVE

OPPORTUNITIES.

WE'LL MAKE THAT DECISION

NEXT YEAR BECAUSE I HAVE TO

DECIDE WHETHER TO RUN FOR

RE-ELECTION OR NOT.

HERE IS WHAT I CAN TELL YOU,

AND THAT IS, I BELIEVE THE

CONSERVATIVE MOVEMENT AND

THE REPUBLICAN PARTY NEEDS

TO BE THE HOME OF UPWARD

MOBILITY AND OPPORTUNITY

AGENDAS.

THAT'S WHAT I HOPE TO BE A

PART OF.

IF YOU LOOK AT THE RECORD OF

THE LAST FIVE AND A HALF

YEARS UNDER THIS PRESIDENT,

POVERTY HAS GOTTEN WORSE,

AND OPPORTUNITY HAS BEEN

DIMINISHED, AND THE MIDDLE

CLASS FEELS LIKE IT IS

RUNNING IN FACE.

WE NEED TO CHANGE DIRECTION

FAST.

David: WHEN YOU SAY

"WE HAVE TO CHANGE," THIS

REPUBLICAN PARTY, THERE

SEEMS TO BE A VOID TRYING TO

PROJECT IT AND COMMUNICATE

IT.

I DON'T THINK THERE IS A

VOID IN TERMS OF THE

POLICY.

THERE ARE A LOT OF

CONSERVATIVES COMING UP WITH

THESE IDEAS.

WE NEED TO PUT THEM IN

PRACTICE, AND COMMUNICATE TO

PEOPLE WE HAVE LIMITED

GOVERNMENT FOR THE

CHALLENGES THEY'RE FACING IN

THEIR DAILY LIVES.

THE SINGLE BIGGEST PROBLEM

WE'RE RUNNING INTO IN MAKING

ANY PROGRESS IS THAT PEOPLE

BELIEVE THAT NO MATTER WHAT

YOU PUT IN THIS LAW FROM AN

ENFORCEMENT PERSPECTIVE, THE

PRESIDENT AND HIS

ADMINISTRATION WILL NOT

ENFORCE THE LAW.

SO WHAT THEY SAY TO ME IS WE

UNDERSTAND WE'VE GOT A DEAL

WITH THE PEOPLE THAT ARE

HERE ILLEGALLY.

BUT IF YOU DON'T ENFORCE THE

LAW, YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE

THE SAME PROBLEM IN THE

FUTURE.

THEY DO NOT BELIEVE THIS

PRESIDENT AND HIS

ADMINISTRATION IS WILLING TO

ENFORCE THE LAW.

IF YOU LOOK AT WHAT HAS

HAPPENED OVER THE LAST YEAR,

THE I.R.S. SCANDAL,

BENGHAZI, AND WHAT HE WANTS

TO DO IN OBAMACARE AND

IGNORING OTHER PARTS OF IT,

THE STATE OF THE UNION WHERE

HE BRAGGED ABOUT ALL OF

THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS HE IS

GOING TO DO OVER THE HEAD OF

MEMBERS OF CONGRESS, IT'S

RIGHT FOR PEOPLE TO FEEL

THAT WAY.

I THINK THE SINGLE BIGGEST

IMPEDIMENT TO THE

IMMIGRATION REFORM IS THE

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION'S

FAILURE TO FOLLOW THE LAW.

David: DO YOU REGRET

THE HITS YOU'RE TAKING?

NO.

I CAME UP HERE TO SOLVE AN

ISSUE AND GET THE

CONVERSATION MOVING ON IT.

I REGRET THAT THIS

ADMINISTRATION HAS GONE

FORWARD WITH UNLAWFUL,

UNCONSTITUTIONAL ACTS, THAT

HAS MADE IT HARDER NOT JUST

TO SOLVE IMMIGRATION, BUT TO

DO TAX REFORM, TO PROMOTE

TRADE AGREEMENTS THAT WILL

EXPAND OUR ECONOMIC

OPPORTUNITIES ON A HOST OF

ISSUES.

WE CAN'T MAKE PROGRESS IN

THIS COUNTRY BECAUSE PEOPLE

LOOK AT THIS ADMINISTRATION

AS EITHER INCOMPETENT OR

LAWLESS.

THE UNITED NATIONS COUNSELS

ITS MEMBERS, SOME OF THE

WORST HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATORS

ON THE PLANET, AND INSTEAD

OF FOCUSING ON THE DEATH

CAMPS AND PRISON CAMPS THAT

EXIST IN NORTH KOREA, THE

PROBLEMS THAT EXIST IN

CHINA, ALL OF THE HORRIBLE

THINGS THAT ARE HAPPENING

ALL OVER THE WORLD, THEY ARE

PREACHING TO A CHURCH ABOUT

ITS SOCIAL ISSUES.

THEY ARE TELLING THE CHURCH,

BY THE WAY, STOP DEFENDING

LIFE, AND STOP DEFENDING

TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE.

WHO IS THE U.N. TO BE SAYING

THIS?

THIS ORGANIZATION THAT IS

BASICALLY RENDERING ITSELF

IRRELEVANT, WHERE SOME OF

THE WORST HUMAN RIGHTS

VIOLATORS ON THE PLANET HAVE

AN EQUAL VOTE WITH OTHER

COUNTRIES THAT RESPECT

FREEDOM AND HUMAN RIGHTS.

David: THAT IS MARCO

RUBIO HERE ON "THE BRODY

FILE."

IF HE RUNS FOR PRESIDENT, HE

COULD BE JOINED BY WISCONSIN

GOVERNOR SCOTT WALKER, NEW

JERSEY GOVERNOR CHRIS

CHRISTIE, OR JEB BUSH AND

MIKE HUCKABEE.

RECENTLY PRESIDENT OBAMA

INVITED ALL OF AMERICA'S

GOVERNORS TO THE WHITE HOUSE

TO SALUTE THEIR WORK, AND

THEN WITH AN EYE ON 2016 HAD

THIS TO SAY...

President Obama:

TONIGHT WE WANT TO MAKE SURE

THAT ALL OF YOU MAKE

YOURSELVES AT HOME, WHICH

SOME OF YOU ARE THINKING,

THAT HAS BEEN THE PLAN ALL

ALONG.

[LAUGHTER]

[APPLAUSE]

President Obama: BUT

KEEP IN MIND WHAT A WISE MAN

ONCE WROTE: "I AM MORE THAN

CONTENT TO BE GOVERNOR AND

SHALL NOT CARE IF I NEVER

HOLD ANOTHER OFFICE."

OF COURSE THAT WAS TEDDY

ROOSEVELT.

David: BARACK OBAMA,

COMEDIAN AND COMMANDER IN

CHIEF.

ALL RIGHT, COMING NEXT, THE

HIT MOVIE "12 YEARS A

SLAVE."

WE LOOK AT THE MORAL AND

RELIGIOUS RAMIFICATIONS OF

THE OSCAR-WORTHY FILM.

THAT'S NEXT.

David: AND WE ARE BACK

ON "THE BRODY FILE."

WELL, LOOK, IT'S OSCAR

SEASON, AND THIS YEAR'S

MOVIES ARE FILLED WITH

PLENTY OF RELIGIOUS,

POLITICAL, AND MORAL STORY

LINES.

IT IS TIME FOR OUR BRODY

FILE MOVIE REVIEW SEGMENT,

AND WHO BETTER TO TURN TO

THAN JOHN JESSUP.

WELCOME TO JOHN'S MOVIE

CORNER.

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THAT?

Reporter: THAT WAS A

GREAT GRAPHIC.

David: JOHN JESSUP

JOINS US HERE.

IT IS GOING TO BE A REGULAR

FEATURE, YOU REVIEWING

MOVIES.

NICE.

NICE.

David: ALL RIGHT,

JOHN, LOOK, "12 YEARS A

SLAVE," REALLY A REMARKABLE

MOVIE, AND I WANT YOU TO

CHIME IN ON IT HERE, BUT

LET'S RUN A CLIP FIRST AND

SHOW PEOPLE A LITTLE WHAT

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT.

* WE'RE DOWN TO THE RIVER

JORDAN *

THAT SERVANT THAT DON'T

OBEY HIS LORD SHALL BE

BEATEN WITH MANY STRIPES.

THAT SCRIPTURE, THE

CONDITION OF YOUR LABOR

LABORERS, IT IS ALL WRONG.

THAT'S MY PROPERTY.

YOU SAY THAT WITH FACT.

I SAY THAT WITH PRIDE.

THIS IS MY FAMILY AND MY

HOME.

IF YOU WANT TO SURVIVE,

DO AND SAY AS LITTLE AS

POSSIBLE.

David: WE HAVE BOTH

SEEN THIS MOVIE.

IT IS COMPELLING FROM THE

MOVIE.

I WANT YOU TO EXPLAIN IT.

IT IS A MOVIE ABOUT A MAN

NAMED SOLOMON NORTHUP, WHO

IS A LAND OWNER, BORN FREE,

AND HE HAS A WIFE AND KIDS,

AND HE IS TRICKED AND SOLD

INTO SLAVERY.

WE HAVE A CHANCE TO FOLLOW

HIS JOURNEY FROM FREEDOM TO

SLAVERY.

David: WHAT DO YOU

MAKE OF SOME OF THE THEMES

WE SEE IN THE MOVIE.

THERE IS A RELIGIOUS THEME

TO A LITTLE BIT, ABOUT

SLAVERY IN THE BIBLE, AND

THE SLAVE OWNERS THERE

REALLY IMPLEMENTING OR AT

LEAST TALKING ABOUT THOSE

TYPE OF THEEMTION.

WHA THEMES.

WHAT DID YOU MAKE OF THAT?

I THINK IT IS A REMINDER

FOR CHRISTIANS, AND PEOPLE

OF ANY FAITH, TO NOT TAKE

SCRIPTURE OUT OF CONTEXT AND

USE IT TO KIND OF CONDONE OR

JUSTIFY, IF YOU WILL,

SLAVERY.

BUT THERE ARE OTHER MORAL

SCENES.

I THINK ONE OF THE THINGS

THAT STUCK OUT TO ME MOST

WAS THE SCENE BETWEEN

SOLOMON NORTHUP AND THE

CHARACTER PLAYED BY BRAD

PITT, WHERE THEY TALK ABOUT

INJUSTICE FOR ONE IS

INJUSTICE FOR ALL.

THERE ARE SEVERAL RESOUNDING

THEMES WHEN IT COMES TO

MORALITY OR CHRISTIAN

VALUES.

David: I REMEMBER WHEN

WE TALKED ABOUT THIS IN THE

OFFICE ABOUT SOME OF THE DIE

DIVERGENT VIEWS.

I'M CURIOUS AS TO THE RANGE

OR SPECTRUM ON THIS.

I WENT TO GO SEE IT WITH

THREE FRIENDS.

ONE OF THE EMOTIONS THAT ONE

PERSON HAD WAS TO GET VERY

ANGRY.

I THOUGHT THAT WAS A VERY

REAL REACTION.

BUT I REMEMBER TELLING THAT

FRIEND, LOOK, I THINK THIS

MOVIE IS A CALL TO ACTION,

IF YOU WILL.

YOU CAN BECOME ANGRY BECAUSE

OF WHAT YOU SAW.

BUT AT THE SAME TIME, I

THINK THIS FILM KIND OF

FORCES THE AUDIENCE TO ASK

QUESTIONS LIKE, NOT ONLY

WHAT WOULD I HAVE DONE BACK

THEN, BUT WHAT CAN I DO

NOW?

THAT'S A GREAT QUESTION.

TODAY THERE ARE MORE PEOPLE

TRAPPED IN MODERN DAY

SLAVERY THAN ANY POINT IN

HISTORY, 30 MILLION PEOPLE.

WE CAN CONTINUE ON THE

MANTEL AND BECOME MODERN DAY

ABOLISHISTS TO FIGHT AGAINST

TRAFFICKING.

David: YOU ARE TALKING

ABOUT A CALL TO ACTION.

YOU FEEL LIKE THIS MOVIE

LENDS ITSELF TO DOING

SOMETHING ALONG THOSE

LINES?

ABSOLUTELY.

ONE OF THE THINGS ABOUT THE

FILM IS IT KIND OF FORCES

YOU TO WRESTLE INTERNALLY

WITH THINGS THAT ARE

UNCOMFORTABLE.

THE DIRECTOR USE SCENES,

LONG SHOTS, THAT JUST KIND

OF SIT, WITH NO CHARACTER

DIALOGUE, NO MUSIC, AND

YOU'RE FORCED TO WRESTLE

WITH QUESTIONS THAT MAYBE

YOU WOULDN'T ASK YOURSELF IN

ANY OTHER CIRCUMSTANCES.

BUT IN THIS MOVIE IT IS

ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE NOT DO DO

SO.

GOING BACK TO

ANTI-TRAFFICKING, THERE ARE

SO MANY THINGS PEOPLE CAN

DO.

YOU SAW CHURCHES GET

INVOLVED WITH

ANTI-TRAFFICKING BACK DURING

THE SUPER BOWL IN NEW

JERSEY.

YOU CAN TEAM UP WITH OTHER

ORGANIZATIONS TO DO

SOMETHING.

THAT IS ULTIMATELY WHAT THIS

MOVIE IS ABOUT.

David: WE HAVE 30

SECONDS OR LESS -- I DON'T

WANT TO CALL IT A REVIEW OF

THE MOVIE, BUT WHAT WAS YOUR

OVERALL IMPRESSION OF THE

MOVIE?

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

I THINK IT MAY TAKE UP

BEST PICTURE.

IT HAS ALREADY WON SEVERAL

AWARDS.

YES, I WOULD RECOMMEND IT

WITH A CAVEAT, IT IS A DARK

FILM, AND IT IS GRAPHIC, BUT

KNEW GRATUITOUSLY.

OVERALL, YES, I WOULD

RECOMMEND IT.

SOMETIMES IT IS IMPORTANT TO

FORCE YOURSELF TO DEAL WITH

THINGS THAT ARE CHALLENGING

OR UNCOMFORTABLE BECAUSE IT

FORCES YOU TO GROW.

David: JOHN'S MOVIE

CORNER.

BEFORE YOU LEAVE, WE HAVE A

PARTING GIFT, DO WE NOT?

POPCORN, POP IT YOURSELF.

WHERE IS "THE BRODY FILE"

POPCORN?

David: THAT'S TOP

SECRET STUFF.

ALL RIGHT, WHEN WE COME

BACK, NORTH DAKOTA'S

PRO-LIFE DRAWING IN THE

SAND.

SEE THE RAGING BATTLE

AHEAD.

David: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE BRODY FILE."

WE LIKE TO COMBINE FAITH AND

POLITICS HERE ON THE SHOW.

THERE IS A NEW POLL OUT THAT

REVEALS WHERE THINGS STAND

ON RELIGIOUS FREEDOM IN

AMERICA.

AND LET ME JUST SAY IT IS

NOT PRETTY.

70% OF SENIOR PASTORS OF

PROTESTANT CHURCHES SAY

RELIGIOUS LIBERTY IS ON THE

DECLINE IN AMERICA.

THAT'S ACCORDING TO A NEW

SURVEY BY LIFEWAY RESEARCH.

59% OF PASTORS SAY

CHRISTIANS ARE LOSING THE

CULTURAL WAR.

AND 11% GO AS FAR AS TO SAY

CHRISTIANS HAVE ALREADY LOST

THE CULTURAL WAR.

AND THIS IS NOT JUST PASTORS

THAT ARE CONCERNED.

54% OF AMERICANS SAY

RELIGIOUS LIBERTY IS ON THE

DECLINE.

AND JUST 38% OF AMERICANS

DISAGREE WITH THAT

STATEMENT.

YOU'VE SEEN IT EVERYWHERE

FROM T-SHIRTS TO ROAD SIGNS

TO CHURCHES, "JESUS SAVES."

WELL, FOR A DAYTON, OHIO,

MAN, THAT PHRASE BECAME VERY

LITERAL.

49-YEAR-OLD BUS DRIVER RICKY

WAGNER PULLED OVER TO THE

SIDE OF THE ROAD TO ADDRESS

MECHANICAL ISSUES WHEN HE

WAS SHOT, NOT ONCE, NOT

TWICE, THREE TIMES -- THAT'S

THE TRINITY, BY THE WAY --

ONCE IN THE LEG AND TWICE

AND THE CHEST.

IT IS WHAT POLICE BELIEVE TO

BE A RACIALLY MOTIVATED GANG

INITIATION.

BUT THEN SOMETHING

MIRACULOUS HAPPENED.

HE SURVIVED, GET THIS, TO A

BIBLE HE WAS CARRYING IN HIS

FRONT POCKET.

I HAD A BOOK IN MY

POCKET.

AT FIRST I THOUGHT IT HAD

WENT THROUGH, BUT IT JUST

FEELS LIKE I'VE BEEN HIT

WITH A SLEDGEHAMMER IN THE

CHEST.

David: FASCINATING.

NOT ONLY DID WAGNER SURVIVE

THE ASSAULT, HE WAS ABLE TO

WRESTLE THE GUN AWAY FROM

THE SUSPECT.

GOOD FOR HIM.

YOU KNOW THE SAYING MAMA

ALWAYS SAID, WELL, IF SHE

TELLS YOU TO TAKE THE WORD

WITH YOU WHEREVER YOU GO,

MAKE SURE YOU LISTEN.

IT MIGHT JUST SAVE YOUR

LIFE.

NOW TO A STORY ABOUT THE

MYSTERIOUS BIG TIPPER KNOWN

ONLY TO THE PUBLIC AS "TIPS

FOR JESUS."

THERE IS A MYSTERY MEGA

TIPPER AND HE IS LEAVING

THOUSANDS OF EXTRA DOLLARS

ON RESTAURANT RECEIPTS

ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

TAKE A LOOK AT THESE TIPS.

HERE IS ONE FOR $5,000 ON A

BILL THAT ONLY COST $576.

BY THE WAY, THAT'S AN 867%

TIP.

"THE BRODY FILE" ACTUALLY

HAD TO WHIP OUT A CALCULATOR

AND PHONE A FRIEND TO FIGURE

THAT ONE OUT.

TAKE A LOOK AT THE RECEIPT

THAT SAYS, "TIPS FOR

JESUS."

AND THERE IS A 67-YEAR-OLD

WAITER IN CALIFORNIA, AND HE

IS KICKING HIMSELF, AFTER HE

MISTAKENLY THREW OUT A

RECEIPT WORTH A $7,000 TIP.

AT FIRST HE THOUGHT THE

PERSON MADE A MISTAKE.

NOW THAT WAITER THINKS HE

MAY HAVE MISSED OUT ON A

LITTLE EXTRA RETIREMENT

MONEY.

THE REPORTS OUT THERE SAY

THIS "TIPS FOR JESUS" GUY IS

ACTUALLY JACK SHELBY.

WHEN WE COME BACK, WHY THIS

WOMAN HAS BEEN PART OF A

PRO-LIFE MOVEMENT IN NORTH

DAKOTA FOR DECADES.

BACK IN A MOMENT.

David: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE BRODY FILE."

AS WE REPORTED IN THE PAST,

THE STATE OF NORTH DAKOTA IS

RICH WITH OIL, BUT IT IS

ALSO RICH WITH PRO-LIFE

VICTORIES.

THE STATE LEGISLATURE THERE

HAS BANNED ABORTIONS AFTER

20 WEEKS.

THEY HAVE BANNED ALL GENDER

SELECTION AND GENETIC

ABNORMALITY ABORTIONS, AND

THEY'VE BANNED ABORTIONS

WHERE A HEARTBEAT IS DETECTIBLE.

AND VOTERS ARE GOING TO

DECIDE IF A HUMAN RIGHTS

AMENDMENT SHOULD BE ADDED TO

THE CONSTITUTION.

ALL OF THIS WOULD NOT BE

POSSIBLE IF IT WEREN'T FOR

WOMEN LIKE YANNA MYRTLE.

SHE HAS BEEN FIGHTING FOR

THE PRO-LIFE CAUSE FOR

DECADES IN NORTH DAKOTA.

SHE CAME FROM NORWAY AND HAS

FOUND HER CALLING.

SHE STOPPED BY FOR A CHAT.

YANNA MYRTLE JOINING US.

THANKS FOR DOING THIS.

THANK YOU.

IT IS AN HONOR TO BE HERE.

David: NORTH DAKOTA,

GIVE US THE LAY OF THE

LAND.

YOU'VE BEEN HEAVILY INVOLVED

IN THE PRO-LIFE MOVEMENT.

TELL ME A LITTLE ABOUT WHAT

IS GOING ON IN NORTH

DAKOTA.

YOU GUYS HAVE DONE A LOT OF

POSITIVE WORK IN NORTH

DAKOTA.

I THINK WOULD SAY

PROBABLY NORTH DAKOTA IS THE

LEADING PRO-LIFE STATE IN

THE NATION.

THE MEDIA PROBABLY DOESN'T

COVER IT TOO MUCH BECAUSE

PLANNED PARENTHOOD AND THE

ABORTION INDUSTRY IS KIND OF

SCARED OF WHAT WE'RE DOING

THERE.

THIS LAST SESSION IN 2013, A

YEAR AGO NOW, WE PROBABLY

PASSED THE MOST MASSIVE

AMOUNT OF ABORTION

RESTRICTIONS AVAILABLE ON

THE TABLE, FRANKLY.

FROM HEARTBEAT, WHICH

BASICALLY SAYS IF THERE IS A

DETECT TABLE HEARTBEAT,

WHICH TO YOU AND I MAKES

ABSOLUTELY COMMON SENSE,

THERE SHOULDN'T BE

ABORTION.

A LOT OF THOSE ARE BEING

CHALLENGED IN COURT.

HOWEVER SOME STOOD, THE

20-WEEK BAN PASSED WITHOUT

FAN FAIR.

IT MIGHT BE COLD, BUT WE'RE

WARM-HEARTED WHEN IT COMES

TO LIFE.

IT PASSED AND IS LAW NOW.

AS WELL AS GENDER SELECTION

ABORTIONS, AND ABORTIONS

BASED ON GENETIC

ABNORMALITIES, WHICH SOME

PEOPLE CALL THE TRIGG PALIN

LAW BECAUSE IT PROTECTS AN

ENORMOUS AMOUNT OF DOWN

SYNDROME CHILDREN.

IN RECENT STUDIES, 60% TO

70% OF NORTH DAKOTANS SAY

ABORTION IS IMMORAL, NO

MATTER WHAT.

David: WHAT IS YOUR

SENSE ON THE HUMAN LIFE

AMENDMENT, AS RELATES TO THE

BULLET COMING UP IN 2014?

WHAT'S THE SENSE ON THE

GROUND?

I THINK IT IS VERY

WINNABLE.

I THINK TO REPEAT WHAT IT

SAYS, WE'RE ASKING NORTH

DAKOTANS TO VOTE ON ONE

SENTENCE TO BE ADDED TO OUR

STATE CONSTITUTION.

THE SENTENCE SAYS, "THE

INALLIABLE RIGHT OF ALL

HUMANS AT ALL STAGES OF

DEVELOPMENT MUST BE

RECOGNIZED AND PROTECTED."

WAS IT REAGAN WHO SAID IT IS

AMAZING ALL THOSE LIVES THAT

ARE PRO-BILLY RAY

PRO-ABORTION.

IT IS A BASIC HUMAN RIGHT.

MY PRESIDENT SAYS THIS IS

THE HUMAN RIGHTS ISSUE OF

OUR TIMES.

IT DOESN'T WRITE LAW.

IT DOESN'T HAVE PENALTIES.

IT JUST SETS A BAR IN THE

CONSTITUTION THAT WE ELECT

THE LEGISLATORS THEN TO LOOK

AT THAT AND GO, OKAY, WHAT

LAWS CAN WE PASS THAT FIT

OUR CONSTITUTION.

AND THEN IF IT GOES TO THE

COURTS, ONE JUDGE CAN'T,

JUST WITH A STROKE OF THE

PEN, TAKE AWAY THE WILL OF

THE PEOPLE.

David: WHAT IS THE END

GAME HERE?

IS IT A NATIONAL END GAME,

END ALL ABORTION, OVER TURN

ROE VS. WADE, OR IS IT

SYSTEMATIC IN NATURE, MAKING

A COMPELLING CASE STATE BY

STATE.

MAYBE THERE IS DISAGREEMENT

ON STRATEGY?

THERE IS DISAGREEMENT,

AND THAT'S OKAY.

YOU HAVE A FAMILY REUNION,

THERE ARE COUSINS YOU DON'T

WANT TO SEE --

David: YES, THERE

ARE.

THERE IS ALWAYS

DISAGREEMENT.

I'M NEVER WORRIED ABOUT

THAT.

I THINK THE LORD GIVES US

ALL A TOOL AND A VISION.

FOR ME, I'M A VERY STATE

RIGHTS PERSON.

I THINK STATE BY STATE IS

WHERE WE'RE GOING TO WIN

THIS.

WE'RE SITTING HERE IN

WASHINGTON, D.C., AND WE'RE

SITTING WITH A SUPREME COURT

THAT WAS UNWILLING TO SEE

THE 20-WEEK BAN, WHICH,

AGAIN, DOESN'T WORRY ME.

I THINK WE NITE NEED T NEED

TO TAKE IT PERSON BY PERSON,

STATE BY STATE.

I KNOW IN THE PRO-LIFE

MOVEMENT YOU HAVE SOME

GROUPS THAT ARE I IT IS ALL

OR NOTHING.

OF COURSE I WANT ALL OR

NOTHING, BUT I THINK A WAR

IS WON ONE ACRE AS A TIME.

WE'VE GIVEN THE WHOLE

TERRITORY AWAY IN 1973, AND

WE HAVE GAINED AN ENORMOUS

AMOUNT OF TERRITORY BACK.

IT IS ABOUT EACH OF THOSE

PREGNANT WOMEN WHO FIND

THEMSELVES IN A CRISIS

PREGNANCY.

IT IS ABOUT WOMEN, ABOUT

UNBORN CHILD, BUT I WOULD

SAY I'M PRO-VALUE.

BECAUSE GOD VALUES THAT

WOMAN AS MUCH AS THE UNBORN

CHILD.

I THINK IN 40 YEARS THE

ADOPTION AGENCIES AND

PRO-LIFE CENTERS WERE DOING

THAT.

BY SAYING LIFE IS PRECIOUS,

HUMAN LIFE IS BASICALLY THE

SEMINAL FOUNDATION -- I

DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW TO SAY

IT, HOW FOUNDATIONAL THAT

RIGHT IS.

YOU DON'T HAVE A RIGHTS

UNLESS YOU HAVE THAT RIGHT.

I THINK THE AMERICAN PEOPLE

ARE ON BOARD WITH US.

I'M FASTING AND PRAYING

BECAUSE THIS IS A TOUGH

ONE.

NOT JUST FOR NORTH DAKOTA,

BUT PRAY FOR THE NATION.

BECAUSE THERE IS A BATTLE

THERE BETWEEN GOOD AND

EVIL.

IT IS JUST THERE, AND WE

KNOW THAT.

HOWEVER, THE PRAYERS THAT

HAVE GONE INTO THIS, IN

NORTH DAKOTA, SPECIFICALLY,

AND THE UNITY THAT HAS NOW

COME, WE ARE ALL AT THE

TABLE TOGETHER.

EVERY PRO-LIFE GROUP THAT

EXISTS IN THE NORTHWEST ARE

AT THE TABLE ON THIS ONE.

BATHE IT IN PRAYER.

WHETHER IT IS CATHOLIC,

BAPTIST, LUTHERAN, IT DOES

NOT MATTER.

IT IS HAVE VERY, VERY STRONG

UNITY.

FOR ME, IT COMES FROM THE

HOLY SPIRIT.

YOU CAN'T CREATE THAT.

JUST LIKE YOU CAN'T CREATE

THAT WITH THE COUSIN YOU

DON'T LIKE.

YOU CERTAINLY CAN'T CREATE

IT WITH SOME OF THE PRO-LIFE

MOVEMENTS.

WE'RE GOING TO GO FORWARD

AND WE'RE NOT GOING TO

QUIT.

David: ALL RIGHT.

WE'RE BACK IN A MOMENT WITH

OUR OY-VEY MOMENT OF THE

WEEK.

David: AND WELCOME

BACK TO THE SHOW,

EVERYBODY.

ALL RIGHT, LOOK, FORGET

"DUCK DYNASTY."

WE HAVE A NEW ONE FOR YOU.

THIS IS CALLED BARACK OBAMA

DYNASTY.

IT IS THIS WEEK'S OY-VEY

MOMENT OF THE WEEK.

*

[HAVA NAGILA]

David: ALL RIGHT, GET

THIS, THIS GUY, DOMINIC

RECIA, IS RUNNING FOR A

CONGRESSIONAL SEAT IN NEW

YORK CITY.

AND SO WHILE OTHER

CANDIDATES ARE DISTANTING

THEMSELVES FROM PRESIDENT

OBAMA, REKIA IS DOING THE

EXACT OPPOSITE.

LISTEN TO THIS.

LET THE FUTURE BEGIN OF

THE BARACK OBAMA DYNASTY.

THE DYNASTY OF BARACK

OBAMA.

[APPLAUSE]

[YELLING]

David: OH, YES, BARACK

OBAMA DYNASTY.

FIRST THERE WAS THE FAMOUS

DYNASTY SHOW BACK IN THE

SHOW, AND THEN THERE WAS

"DUCK DYNASTY", AND, WELL,

NOW...BARACK OBAMA DYNASTY

DYNASTY.

OY-GEVALT.

THAT DOES IT FOR THIS WEEK.

UNTIL NEXT TIME, EVERYBODY,

GOD BLESS AND HAVE A GREAT

WEEK.
