The Brody File: The March Through Milwaukee - November 19, 2015

The Brody File crew marches to Milwaukee, Wisconsin as the GOP candidates bring their debate road show to the heartland. We'll have a report on that, plus a closer look at Christians under persecution in the Middle East and what Donald Trump ... ... Read Transcript


David: AND WELCOME,

EVERYBODY, TO ANOTHER

EDITION OF "THE BRODY

FILE."

WE'RE ALWAYS ON THE ROAD,

AND WE'RE BACK ON THE

ROAD, FOLKS.

MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN,

BEHIND ME.

LAKE MICHIGAN.

THAT'S RIGHT, WHAT A

BEAUTIFUL LAKE.

WHAT A HUGE LAKE,

ACTUALLY.

IT'S A GREAT LAKE.

AND WE'RE GLAD.

WE ARE HERE AND WE'RE

GLAD.

THE REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES

ARE HERE, AND THEY'VE BEEN

DEBATING ALL AROUND THE

COUNTRY.

HOW APPROPRIATE THEY WOULD

DEBATE HERE ALONG THE

SHORES OF LAKE MICHIGAN

BECAUSE, QUITE FRANKLY,

WHEN THIS PRESIDENTIAL

CAMPAIGN SEASON IS ALL

DONE, I THINK WE'RE ALL

GOING TO WANT TO GO JUMP

IN A LAKE.

WHY NOT?

LET'S JUST JUMP IN LAKE

MICHIGAN, IT IS BEHIND US,

AFTER ALL.

WHERE DO THESE REPUBLICAN

PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES

STAND?

LET'S START IN THIS DEBATE

IN MIL MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN.

THE G.O.P. CANDIDATES

SPARRED IN THEIR MOST

SUBSTANTIVE DEBATE SO FAR

IN THIS ELECTION CYCLE,

WITH THE ECONOMY TAKING

CENTER STAGE.

FROM DISCUSSING THE TAX

CODE...

THE CURRENT SYSTEM

ISN'T FAIR.

WASHINGTON IS

FUNDAMENTALLY CORRUPT.

THERE ARE MORE WORDS IN

THE I.R.S. CODE THAN THERE

ARE IN THE BIBLE, AND NOT

A ONE OF THEM IS AS GOOD.

David: ...TWO

BUILDING A STRONGER MIDDLE

CLASS.

FOR THE LIFE OF ME, I

DON'T KNOW WE HAVE

STIGMATIZED VOCATIONAL

EDUCATION.

WELDERS MAKE MORE MONEY

THAN PHILOSOPHERS.

David: THE BIGGEST

CLASH WHEN RAND PAUL

QUESTIONED MARCO RUBIO'S

DESIRE TO PUSH FOR A

LARGER CHILD TAX CREDIT IN

ADDITION TO MORE DEFENSE

SPENDINGMENT.

>SPENDING.

THE POINT I WOULD LIKE

TO MAKE ABOUT THE TAX

CREDITS, WE HAVE TO DECIDE

WHAT IS CONSERVATIVE AND

WHAT ISN'T CONSERVATIVE.

IS IT FISCALLY

CONSERVATIVE TO HAVE A

TRILLION DOLLAR

EXPENDITURE?

I DO WANTS TO REBUILD

THE AMERICAN MILITARY.

I KNOW RAND IS A

COMMITTED ISOLATIONIST.

I'M NOT.

I BELIEVE THAT THE WORLD

IS A BETTER PLACE WHEN THE

AMERICA IS STRONGER.

HOW IS IT CONSERVATIVE

TO ADD A TRILLION

EXPENDITURE FOR THE

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT?

David: AND THERE

WERE DISAGREEMENTS ON

TOPICS LIKE IMMIGRATION.

TRUMP WANTS TO DEPORT ALL

ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS.

WE EITHER HAVE A

COUNTRY OR WE DON'T HAVE A

COUNTRY.

WE ARE A COUNTRY OF LAWS.

THEY'LL HAVE TO GO OUT,

AND THEY'LL COME BACK.

BUT THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE

TO GO OUT AND HOPEFULLY

THEY'LL GET BACK.

THE PEOPLE THINK THAT

WE'RE GOING TO SHIP

11 MILLION PEOPLE, WHO ARE

LAW-ABIDING, WHO ARE IN

THIS COUNTRY, AND SOMEHOW

PICK THEM UP AT THEIR

HOUSE AND SHIP THEM OUT TO

MEXICO?

THINK ABOUT THE FAMILIES.

THINK ABOUT THE CHILDREN.

> IT IS A SILLY

ARGUMENT.

IT MAKES NO SENSE.

David: ON FOREIGN

POLICY, TRUMP BELIEVES WE

SHOULD STAY OUT OF SYRIA

AND LET VLADIMIR PUTIN AND

RUSSIAN FORCES FIGHT OVER

THERE.

WE CAN'T CONTINUE TO BE

THE POLICEMEN OF THE

WORLD.

DONALD IS WRONG ON

THIS.

WE'RE NOT GOING TO BE THE

WORLD'S POLICEMEN, BUT WE

BETTER BE THE WORLD'S

LEADER.

THERE IS A HUGE

DIFFERENCE.

WITHOUT US LEADING, VOIDS

ARE FILLED.

David: CARLY FIORINA

TOOK THE OPPORTUNITY TO

SAY HOW SHE WOULD SHOW

PUTIN AMERICA'S MUSCLE.

I WOULD START BUILDING

THE SIXTH FLEET RIGHT

UNDER HIS NOSE.

REBUILDING THE MISSILE

DEFENSE SYSTEM IN POLAND

RIGHT UNDER HIS NOSE.

I WOULD CONDUCT AGGRESSIVE

MILITARY MISSIONS IN THE

BALTIC STATE.

David: AS FOR BEN

CARSON, HE ADDRESSED THE

SWIRLING CONTROVERSY OVER

THE MEDIA VETTING PROCESS,

AND HOW THEY'RE TRYING TO

FIND ANY LITTLE THING TO

TAKE HIM DOWN.

I HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH

BEING VETTED.

WHAT I DO HAVE A PROBLEM

WITH IS BEING LIED ABOUT.

BUT, YOU KNOW, WHEN I LOOK

AT SOMEBODY LIKE HILLARY

CLINTON, WHO SITS THERE

AND TELLS HER DAUGHTER AND

A GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL THAT

NO, THIS WAS A TERRORIST

ATTACK, AND THEN TELLS

EVERYBODY ELSE THAT IT WAS

A VIDEO -- WHERE I CAME

FROM, THEY CALL THAT A

LIE.

David: NOW THAT THIS

DEBATE IN MILWAUKEE IS

COMPLETE, THE NEXT ONE

COMES MORE THAN A MONTH

FROM NOW IN LAS VEGAS, IN

MID-DECEMBER.

AND IN THIS PRESIDENTIAL

RACE THAT HAS TURNED INTO

A SOAP OPERA, THAT GIVES

PLENTY OF TIME FOR A LOT

OF TWISTS AND TURNS.

> NOW, LOOK, AFTER THAT

DEBATE, AND ACTUALLY AT

ALL OF THE DEBATES, WHAT

HAPPENS IS THE FOLKS

WITHIN THE CAMPAIGN,

CAMPAIGN HANDLERS AND

CAMPAIGN MANAGERS, AND,

QUITE FRANKLY, A LOT OF

THE CANDIDATES -- THEY ALL

GO IN THE SPIN ROOM.

AND THAT IS WHERE THEY TRY

TO -- THAT'S RIGHT --

SPIN THE MEDIA.

THEY SAY WE WERE THE BEST

BECAUSE OF THIS.

THAT'S WHERE WE GO.

"THE BRODY FILE" CREW

GOING INTO THE SPIN ROOM

AND WE DID SOME INTERVIEWS

AFTER THIS LAST DEBATE IN

MILWAUKEE.

David: HOW DO YOU

THINK YOU DID?

I THINK IT WAS GREAT.

I THINK GOVERNOR CHRI CHRISTIE

WAS FANTASTIC.

HE KEPT THE FOCUS ON

HILLARY CLINTON.

AND I THINK HE SHOWED A

MATURITY LEVEL YOU NEED TO

BE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED

STATES.

I THINK HE SHOWED THE KIND

OF STRENGTH AND LEADERSHIP

ABILITY THAT IS GOING TO

ALLOW HIM TO BE THE BEST

PRESIDENT.

PRESIDENT BUSH SHOWED

HE IS READY TO BE

COMMANDER IN CHIEF.

HE PROSECUTED A CASE

AGAINST HILLARY CLINTON,

AND WAS THE ONE CANDIDATE

WHO RELATED HIS POLICIES

TO THE LIVES OF REAL

AMERICANS.

I THOUGHT WE DID WHAT WE

HAD TO DO TONIGHT.

David: NOT MUCH OR

MARCO TONIGHT, BUT ON

HILLARY.

SHOWING WHAT A GENERAL

ELECTION MATCHUP WOULD

LOOK LIKE, SOMEONE WHO HAS

TOTAL COMMAND OF THE

ISSUES, A RECORD OF

CONSERVATIVE REFORM,

POLICIES IN MOVING THE

COUNTRY FORWARD, AND

TALKING ABOUT HOW THEY

WOULD BENEFIT AMERICANS.

MR. TRUMP WAS FANTASTIC

TONIGHT.

OBVIOUSLY, THE ONLY PERSON

ON THE STAGE WHO PLANNED

PRIVATE SECTOR JOBS.

I THINK HE WAS VERY WELL

RECEIVED TONIGHT.

>

A GREAT EVENING.

David: WHAT DID YOU

LIKE ABOUT IT?

THE WAY IT WAS HANDLED.

IT WAS FAIR AND ELEGANT.

AND HE TALKED ABOUT

ECONOMY AND BUSINESS, AND

HE IS A MASTER AT THAT.

WELL, I WAS VERY

COMFORTABLE TONIGHT.

I THINK I'VE BEEN VERY

COMFORTABLE IN THE OTHER

THREE.

I THOUGHT THIS WAS A VERY

ELEGANT DEBATE.

I THOUGHT THE MODERATERS

WERE ALL GREAT.

IT STAYED ON FOCUS.

THEY WEREN'T ASKING ABOUT

FANTASY FOOTBALL AND

THINGS LIKEúrEP$KpBDX+:

I THINK THEY SHOULD BE

PROUD OF THE JOB THEY DID.

AND I'M PROUD OF THE JOB I

DID.

THANK YOU, DAVID.

David: THAT'S "THE

BRODY FILE" CREW IN THE

SPIN ROOM.

> WHEN WE COME BACK,

FROM THE SHORES OF LAKE

MICHIGAN HERE IN

MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN,

DONALD TRUMP AND RELIGIOUS

LIBERTY, DO THEY BELONG IN

THE SAME SENTENCE?

HE BELIEVES THEY DO.

WE'LL EXPLAIN THAT WHEN WE

COME BACK.

PIP

David: WELCOME BACK,

EVERYBODY, TO THE SHORES

OF LAKE MICHIGAN.

, OOF COURSE, WE COVER

PRESIDENTIAL POLITICS,

FAITH AND POLITICS, THE

MIXTURE OF THEM BOTH.

DONALD TRUMP IS TRYING TO

MIX FAITH AND POLITICS, AT

LEAST AT TIME.

HE DOESN'T TALK MUCH ABOUT

DOMESTIC RELIGIOUS

LIBERTY, BUT HE LOVES TO

TALK TO "THE BRODY FILE"

ABOUT THE PERSECUTION OF

CHRISTIANS OVERSEAS.

THAT IS SOMETHING WE HAVE

TALKED TO HIM ABOUT IN THE

PAST.

IF YOU'RE A CHRISTIAN

LIVING IN SYRIA, YOU CAN'T

COME INTO THIS COUNTRY.

AND YET IF YOU'RE A MUSLIM

LIVING IN SYRIA, WHO ARE

NOT UNDER ATTACK, THEY CAN

COME IN.

BUT WE HAVE CHRISTIANS

BEING BEHEADED ALL OVER

THE WORLD BY ISIS.

IN SYRIA AND IRAQ IN

PARTICULAR.

AND THOSE CHRISTIANS CAN'T

COME INTO THIS COUNTRY.

SO YOU SAY WHAT YOU WANT,

THIS IS REALLY SOMETHING.

AND THAT'S A LACK OF

RESPECT FOR US.

IF YOU'RE A MUSLIM, YOU

CAN COME INTO THE COUNTRY

VERY EASY.

IF YOU'RE FROM EUROPE AND

YOU'RE A MUSLIM, YOU CAN

COME IN.

BUT IF YOU'RE FROM EUROPE

AND YOU'RE A CHRISTIAN,

YOU CAN'T COME IN.

MEANING IT IS ALMOST

IMPOSSIBLE.

SO YOU TELL ME ABOUT

RELIGIOUS LIBERTY AND

FREEDOM.

THE CHRISTIANS ARE BEING

TREATED HORRIBLY BECAUSE

WE HAVE NOBODY TO

REPRESENT THE CHRISTIANS.

BELIEVE ME, IF I RUN AND I

WIN, I WILL BE THE

GREATEST REPRESENTATIVE OF

THE CHRISTIANS THAT

THEY'VE HAD IN A LONG

TIME.

David: THAT IS

DONALD TRUMP WAXING

POETIC, I GUESS, ON

RELIGIOUS LIBERTY HERE ON

"THE BRODY FILE."

SPEAKING OF RELIGIOUS

LIBERTY, ESPECIALLY WHEN

IT COMES TO THE

PERSECUTION OVERSEAS,

LET'S BRING IN JENNIFER

WISHON, WHO HAS THIS PIECE

ABOUT HOW THE PERSECUTION

OF CHRISTIANS IS OUT OF

CONTROL OVERSEAS.

Jennifer: AMERICAN

CHRISTIANS WATCH IN HORROR

AS THEIR BROTHERS AND

SISTERS ACROSS THE GLOBE

ARE BEHEADED, RAPED, AND

CRUCIFIED BY THE ISLAMIC

STATE.

WHEN THEY REFUSE TO

CONVERT TO ISLAM.

JUST RELEASED, THE STATE

DEPARTMENT'S INTERNATIONAL

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM REPORT

HAD MUCH TO DOCUMENT THIS

YEAR.

YAZIDIS AND CHRISTIANS

HAVE BORNE THE WORST

AFFRONT BY ISIS.

ATTACKS ON THESE

COMMUNITIES ARE PART OF

THE SYSTEMATIC EFFORT TO

ERASE THEIR PRESENCE FROM

THE MIDDLE EAST.

WE'RE HORRIFIED WHEN WE

SEE THESE ACTS OF

VIOLENCE.

Reporter: THE

RELIGIOUS AMBASSADOR,

DAVID SAPERSTEIN, HAS BEEN

ON THE JOB FOR NEARLY A

YEAR.

WHAT IS THE BIGGEST THREAT

TO RELIGIOUS LIBERTY IN

THE WORLD RIGHT NOW?

PROBABLY A GROWING MOVE

OF INTOLERANCE BY MORE

EXTREMIST EXPRESSIONS OF

RELIGION, OFTEN IN

COUNTRIES WHERE DIFFERENT

RELIGIONS HAD LIVED

TOGETHER FOR CENTURIES.

Jennifer: WHERE

CHRISTIANS AND OTHER

MINORITIES ARE FLEEING FOR

THEIR LIVES, HE SAYS HIS

OFFICE IS WORKING TO HELP

THEM, SPENDING BILLIONS OF

DOLLARS TO MAINTAIN THE

DISPLACED, AND DEAL WITH

OTHER PROBLEMS YOU MAY NOT

HAVE CONSIDERED, LIKE

TRANSITIONAL JUSTICE FOR

IRAQI CHRISTIANS WHO FLED

FROM THE NINEVEH PLAIN,

MOSUL, AND OTHER REGIONS.

SCORES OF THOUSANDS OF

CHRISTIANS FLED THOSE

AREAS IN ORDER TO SAVE THE

LIVES OF THEIR FAMILIES.

SOME OF THEIR NEIGHBORS IN

THOSE AREAS TOOK OVER

THEIR HOMES, TOOK OVER

THEIR BUSINESSES.

THEY'RE GOING TO GO BACK.

THAT HAS TO BE SORTED OUT.

THERE HAS TO BE A

TRANSITIONAL JUSTICE

SYSTEM SET UP IN THE

INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY.

AND THEY'RE WORKING ON

THAT.

Jennifer: THERE ARE

SOME CRITICS WHO SAY THE

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION COULD

BE DOING MUCH MORE TO

PROTECT RELIGIOUS

MINORITIES, ESPECIALLY IN

PLACES LIKE THE MIDDLE

EAST.

DO YOU THINK THAT'S A FAIR

CRITIQUE?

THE ARGUMENT THAT YOU

COULD DO MORE OR MUCH

MORE, IS ALWAYS A

DIFFICULT ONE TO ASSESS.

LOOK AT WHAT OUR

INTERVENTION HAS DONE.

WE HAD THE YAZIDI

COMMUNITY FACING A LITERAL

GENOCIDE.

THAT WAS THE EXPLICIT

INTENTION, EXPRESSED

INTENTION, OF ISIL.

THERE ARE CERTAINLY SCORES

OF THOUSANDS OF YAZIDIS

ALIVE TODAY, AND PERHAPS

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS,

BECAUSE THE UNITED STATES

LED INTERVENTION.

Jennifer: SOME IRAQI

CHRISTIANS ARE TAKING UP

ARMS NOW TO DEFEND

THEMSELVES.

WHAT ADVICE DOES YOUR

OFFICE OFFER TO RELIGIOUS

MINORITIES WHO ARE BEING

PERSECUTED?

NONE OF THOSE LOCAL

DEFENSE FORCES WILL BE

LARGE ENOUGH TO DEFEND

THEMSELVES AGAINST A

POWERFUL ENTITY LIKE ISIL.

SO WE'RE URGING THAT THEY

BE INTEGRATED WITH THE

PESHMERGA AND THE IRAQI

FORCES THROUGH SOME KIND

OF NATIONAL GUARD

STRUCTURE.

Jennifer: OUTSIDE OF

THE MIDDLE EAST, WHAT PART

OF THE WORLD GIVES YOU THE

MOST HEARTBURN?

THE TRUTH IS, WHEREVER

YOU SEE RELIGIOUS

OPPRESSION AND DEPRIVATION

OF FREEDOM AND PEOPLE

BEING PUNISHED,

IMPRISONED, TORTURED,

HARASSED BECAUSE THEY

SIMPLY WANT TO LIVE OUT

THEIR FAITH I IN ACCORDANCE

TO THEIR CONSCIENCE AND

WORSHIP GOD AS THEY TRULY

BELIEVE IN THEIR HEARTS.

AND WHEN WE SEE THAT KIND

OF OPPRESSION, IT BREAKS

OUR HEART.

David: JENNIFER

WISHON HERE ON "THE BRODY

FILE."

WHEN THE SHOW ROLLS ON

FROM THE SHORES OF LAKE

MICHIGAN, WE'RE GOING TO

TALK WITH CHRIS STONE HERE

ON THE BRODY FILE.

HE HAS SOMETHING TO SAY

ABOUT CHRISTIANS

REGISTERING THEIR VOTE

WITH THEIR WALLET THIS

CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY SEASON.

BACK IN A MOMENT.

David: AND WELCOME

BACK, EVERYBODY, TO "THE

BRODY FILE."

ON THE ROAD HERE IN

MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN, LAKE

MICHIGAN.

A GREAT LAKE, BY THE WAY.

A HUGE AND FANTASTIC LAKE,

AS DONALD TRUMP MIGHT SAY

HELPEBEHIND ME.

HERE AT "THE BRODY FILE,"

WE COVER EVANGELICALS AND

POLITICS, AND WE SAY, YOU

EVANGELICALS, YOU HAVE TO

GET OUT AND VOTE AND

REGISTER YOUR VOTE BECAUSE

IT IS REALLY IMPORTANT

WHEN IT COMES TO THE

POLITICAL STRUCTURE IN

AMERICA.

HOWEVER, THERE IS ANOTHER

VOTE YOU HAVE, AND THAT'S

WITH YOUR WALLET.

THERE IS A COMPANY CALLED

"FAITH-DRIVEN CONSUMER."

AND THE C.E.O. STOPPED BY

"THE BRODY FILE" STUDIOS

TO TALK ABOUT THE FAITH

EQUALITY IN DEPTH.

WE AS CHRISTIANS CAN

ACTUALLY REGISTER OUR

VOTE, IF YOU WILL, WITH

OUR WALLET, BY GOING TO

MORE FAITH-FRIENDLY STORES

THIS HOLIDAY SEASON.

HAVE A LOOK AT OUR

INTERVIEW.

AND CHRIS STONE HERE AT

"THE BRODY FILE," INSIDE

"THE BRODY FILE" STUDIO.

THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE.

THANK YOU FOR HAVING

ME.

David: TELL ME ABOUT

THE -- NO PUN INTENDED --

GENESIS, ABOUT HOW THIS

ALL GOT STARTED.

EXPLAIN HOW THIS CAME TO

BE.

WELL, YOU HAVE A MARKET

SEGMENT, IF YOU WILL, A

SUB-SET OF THE CHRISTIAN

MARKETPLACE.

41 MILLION AMERICANS WHO

HAVE BEEN LARGELY

MARGINALIZED.

LOOK AT THIS ECONOMY, YOU

HAVE THE LGBT COMMUNITY,

THE HISPANIC, AND THE

AFRICAN-AMERICAN, AND THEY

ALL HAVE SPECIAL

RELATIONSHIPS WITH BRANDS.

WE DISCOVERED WITHIN THE

CHRISTIAN MARKETPLACE, 70%

OF THE PEOPLE WHO ARE

ACTIVELY LOOKING FOR BRAND

ENGAGEMENT -- 77% OF THEM

ARE WILLING TO CHANGE

BRANDS IF THE BRAND WILL

JUST REACH OUT.

SO WE CREATED THE

COMMUNITY.

AND THEN SO THAT CONSUMERS

WOULD HAVE A TRANSPARENT

GUIDE, WE CREATED THE

FAITH EQUALITY INDEX.

300 COMPANIES HAVE BEEN

REVIEWED, AND THE CONSUMER

GROUP CAN LOOK AT THOSE

COMPANIES AND DECIDE WHO

THEY WANT TO DO BUSINESS

WITH.

David: TELL ME A

LITTLE ABOUT THE BEST WAY

FOR FOLKS WHO ARE WATCHING

THIS, CAN GO AND MAKE IT

EASY ENOUGH FOR THEM TO

UNDERSTAND WHAT COMPANIES

THEY MAY WANT TO GO WITH?

THE BEST THING TO DO IS

ENGAGE ON THE WEBSITE.

THERE IS AN ACTION CENTER

THERE AT

Christmasbuycot.com.

AND IT LISTS OUT HOW TO

RESEARCH COMPANIES AND HOW

TO ENGAGE THEM IN A

POSITIVE AND PROACTIVE

WAY.

David: WHAT IS THE

ULTIMATE GOAL THAT YOU

WANT TO GET THROUGH TO

MAKE SURE CHRISTIANS ARE

HAVING THEIR SAY THROUGH

THEIR WALLETS?

AND THROUGH COMPANIES'

WALLETS?

IT IS A GREAT QUESTION.

WE HAVE HEARD TIME AND

TIME AGAIN FROM BRANDS

THAT COMPARED TO OTHER

COMMUNITIES, CHRISTIANS

ARE VERY QUIET.

SO HERE IS AN OPPORTUNITY

FOR THEM TO PRO-ACTIVELY

ENGAGE, TO LOOK AT THE

SURVEY, PICK A COMPANY,

BASED ON THE RATINGS, AND

TO BUYCOT, AS OPPOSED TO

BOYCOTT.

A BOYCOTT IS TO NOT DO

BUSINESS WITH SOMEBODY

BECAUSE THEY'RE NOT IN

ALIGNMENT WITH YOUR

BELIEFS.

BUT IF YOU DO THAT IN A

STRICT SENSE, THERE WOULD

BE NO ONE TO DO BUSINESS

WITH.

PLUS, IT IS A NEGATIVE

CONCEPT, AND THE "BUYCOT"

IS A POSITIVE CONCEPT.

IT IS A WONDERFUL

OPPORTUNITY TO ENGAGE WITH

COMPANIES, TO DO BUSINESS

WITH THEM, TO FORM A

RELATIONSHIP FROM WHICH

THE THINGS YOU WANT TO

ACHIEVE CAN BE

ACCOMPLISHED.

IT IS A SOCIAL PURPOSE

OPPORTUNITY.

David: HOW IS THE

INDEX ARRIVED AT, IF YOU

WILL?

WHAT FACTORS GO INTO IT?

HOW IS THIS ALL KIND OF

PUT TOGETHER?

WELL, WE TAKE THE MAJOR

U.S. BRANDS, THE COMPANIES

THAT PEOPLE DO BUSINESS

WITH THE MOST.

AND WE DEVELOPED A SURVEY.

AND THIS SURVEY IS

FORMULATED ON A

METHODOLOGY THAT HAS

WORKED FOR OTHER

COMMUNITIES.

YOU SEND THE SURVEY TO THE

COMPANIES.

YOU RATE THEM BASED UPON

THE RESPONSES TO THAT

SURVEY, AND YOU COME UP

WITH A FAITH

COMPATIBILITY.

HOW WELL ARE THEY

ENGAGING.

WHAT YOU'LL NOTICE IF YOU

LOOK AT THE SCORES,

THEY'RE ALL RELATIVELY

LOW.

WE HAVEN'T FOUND THERE IS

A MASS CONSPIRACY TO

INCLUDE CHRISTIANS, BUT

THERE IS A MASS IGNORANCE

TO THE FACT THAT THIS

COMMUNITY EXISTS.

AND AS WE BROUGHT IT UP TO

PEOPLE, THEY'RE ACTUALLY

STEPPING UP AND ENGAGING

CHRISTIANS CONSUMERS.

AND THEY'RE WORKING

THROUGH THIS SURVEY TO

IMPROVE THEIR SCORES.

AND IF YOU LOOK AT IT,

DIVERSITIY IS A BIG ISSUE

IN THE AMERICAN

MARKETPLACE.

AND THESE COMPANIES ARE

LOOKING AT IT THROUGH A

DIVERSITY LENS.

AND THEY'RE BENCHMARKING

THEMSELVES BASED UPON THE

SURVEY, AND THEY'RE USING

IT AS A LEADING INDICATOR

OR A TRAILING INDICATOR.

HOW WELL ARE WE DOING AT

ENGAGING THESE CONSUMERS?

David: ALL RIGHT.

WHEN WE ROLL ON FROM LAKE

MICHIGAN, GUESS WHO WE

HAVE WITH US?

THAT'S RIGHT, AMBER C.

STRONG.

SHE IS SOCIAL MEDIA AND

"POPLITICAL"

CORRESPONDENT, AND SHE IS

COMING WITH "POPLITICAL,"

NEXT.

David: AND WELCOME

BACK, EVERYBODY, TO "THE

BRODY FILE," HERE IN

MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN, LAKE

MICHIGAN BEHIND ME.

IT IS A GREAT LAKE.

IF DONALD TRUMP IS

RENAMING THESE LAKES, HE

MIGHT JUST CALL THEM THE

HUGE LAKES.

IT'S JUST A SUGGESTION.

> SPEAKING OF PHENOMENAL

AND THE BEST, AMBER C.

STRONG, OUR PRODUCER, WHO

MORVETIOMORPHS INTO "POPLITICAL"

CORRESPONDENT IS HERE WITH

US ON THE ROAD, FROM

MILWAUKEE.

*

THE TALK ON SOCIAL

MEDIA AND THE TALK IN THE

"POPLITICAL" WORLD HAPPEN

TO BE TWO THINGS, DONALD

TRUMP AND S & L.

YOU'RE THE MOST AMAZING

GUY, YOU'RE BRILLIANT AND

HANDSOME.

TRUMP BROUGHT IN HUGE

RATINGS BECAUSE NOBODY IS

BIGGER THAN TRUMP.

HIS COMEDY DID NOT COME

WITHOUT CONTROVERSY,

THOUGH.

THE PRO-IMMIGRATION GROUP,

"DEPORT RACISM," OFFERED

5,000 DOLLARS TO AAUDIENCE

MEMBER WILLING TO YELL,

"TRUMP IS A RACIST."

THEY GOT THEIR WISH, BUT

IT CAME BY A COMEDIAN.

AND DR. BEN CARSON SHOWED

OFF HIS EMCEE SKILLS --

WELL, NOT REALLY.

THE CARSON CAMPAIGN DID

RELEASE A RADIO AD

TARGETED TO YOUNG BLACK

VOTERS.

IN AN INTERVIEW WITH M.P.

R., THE ARTIST SAID,

QUOTE," , I BELIEVE THAT

AFRICAN-AMERICANS NEED A

SEAT AT EVERY TABLE, IN

SILICONE VALLEY AND ON

WALL STREET."

FINALLY, DON'T IGNORE

THOSE FRIEND REQUESTS,

PEOPLE.

YOU MIGHT BE GETTING ONE

FROM PRESIDENT OBAMA.

PROBABLY NOT.

RECENTLY HE JOINED

Facebook, HOPING TO MAKE

HIS PAGE A, QUOTE,"PLACE

FOR REAL CONVERSATION."

HIS FIRST TOPIC, CLIMATE

CHANGE.

SO HERE AT "POPLITICAL,"

WE LIKE TO POP THE

QUESTION BACK AT YOU.

IF YOU REMEMBER YOUR FIRST

Facebook POSTAL, TEL POST, TELL US

WHAT IT WAS.

DAVID, BACK TO YOU.

David: THAT IS AMBER

C. STRONG HERE ON "THE

BRODY FILE."

SHE LOVES DOING

"POPLITICAL," AND SHE

HATES TACO BELL, WELL, AT

LEAST THAT'S THE WORD ON

THE STREET.

> BACK IN A MOMENT WITH

SOME SIGHTS AND SOUNDS

FROM THE GREAT LAKES.

David: AND WELCOME

BACK, EVERYBODY, TO "THE

BRODY FILE."

LAKE MICHIGAN, MILWAUKEE.

IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL.

"THE BRODY FILE" FILE CREW

HERE, DENNIS, VERONICA,

AMBER C. STRONG, MYSELF --

MAYBE A COUPLE OF ME.

IT HAS BEEN A LONG

CAMPAIGN SEASON.

QUITE A BIT OF FOOD.

ANYHOW, WE HAVE A

LITTLESITES ANLITTLESIGHTS AND SOUNDS, AS WE

ALWAYS DO FOR YOU ON THE

ROAD.

CHECK IT OUT.

David: I HOPE RAND

PAUL IS NOT WATCHING.

David: THE SIGHTS

AND SOUNDS HERE ON "THE

BRODY FILE."

WE'RE ON THE ROAD.

MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN, LAKE

MICHIGAN.

THAT DOES IT FOR US THIS

WEEK.

HEY, THANKSGIVING IS

COMING UP.

GOBBLE, GOBBLE.

GOT TO WISH YOU A BIG,

HAPPY THANKSGIVING.

"THE BRODY FILE" PLANNING

TO CHOW DOWN, AND COMING

BACK IN AN iMAX VERSION

AFTER THANKSGIVING.

THAT DOES IT FOR THIS

WEEK.

UNTIL NEXT TIME, GOD BLESS

YOU, AND HAVE A GREAT

WEEK.
