The Brody File: While You Were Sleeping - January 7, 2016

On this week's Brody File show, we catch you up on the political happenings over the holidays. Plus, a closer look at President Obama's moves on gun control. And one-on-one with Dr. Russell Moore who talks about what evangelicals need to ... Read Transcript


David: AND WELCOME,

EVERYBODY, TO ANOTHER

EDITION OF "THE BRODY

FILE."

WE ARE SO GLAD YOU JOINED

US.

WELL, LOOK, THIS WEEK

THERE HAS BEEN A LOT GOING

DOWN OVER THE HOLIDAYS

SINCE WE TOOK A LITTLE

TIME OFF, AND I'M SURE YOU

ALL TRIED TO DECOMPRESS

FROM POLITICS FOR A WHILE,

AND YOU JUST WANTED TO

ENJOY SOME QUALITY TIME

WITH THE FAMILY.

OR MAYBE YOU DIDN'T WANT

TO ENJOY THAT TIME.

ANYHOW, WE WANT TO

DEDICATE THIS SECTION OF

THE SHOW AS A TRIBUTE TO

THE MOVIE "WHILE YOU WERE

SLEEPING."

IN OTHER WORDS, WHAT WAS

GOING ON IN THE WORLD OF

PRESIDENTIAL POLITICS

WHILE YOU WERE SLEEPING

OVER THE HOLIDAYS?

GET IT?

WE'RE SO CREATIVE.

HERE GOES: LET US START

WITH BEN CARSON BECAUSE

THE NEW YEAR IS NOT OFF TO

A GOOD START.

WE LOVE THE GOOD DOCTOR,

BUT HIS CAMPAIGN SEEMS

LIKE IT IS NOW ON LIFE

SUPPORT.

HIS CAMPAIGN MANAGER AND

COMMUNICATIONS' DIRECTOR

HAVE RESIGNED.

SOME WILL SAY THEY WERE

FIRED.

ANYHOW, BOTTOM LINE, A

MAJOR SHAKEUP HAS TAKEN

PLACE BECAUSE IT APPEARS

THAT THE CAMPAIGN TEAM AND

SOME OUTSIDE ADVISORS

WEREN'T SEEING EYE TO EYE

ON STRATEGY, SO THE

OUTSIDE ADVISORS WON.

AND NOW, AS DR. CARSON

TRIED TO PUT IT ALL BACK

TO PIECES, IT IS BECOMING

SOMEWHAT OF A MESS.

WE'LL SEE HOW IT PLAYS

OUT.

IS IT TOO LATE?

WE DON'T KNOW.

BUT THERE IS LESS THAN A

MONTH TO THE

FEBRUARY 1st IOWA

CAUCASUS, AND HE HAS

DROPPED BIG TIME IN THE

POLLS.

SPEAKING OF THE POLLS,

HERE IS SOMETHING ELSE

THAT WAS GOING ON WHILE

YOU WERE SPEAKING.

TED CRUZ ON TOP OF THE

POLLS IN IOWA.

DONALD TRUMP ALSO SHOWING

STRENGTH IN THE STATE,

TOO.

SO IT LOOKS TO BE A

TWO-MAN RACE.

BUT AT THIS MOMENT CRUZ IS

THE STORY AND IT IS HIS

RACE TO LOSE.

IN IOWA, HE HAS KEY

ENDORSEMENTS FROM BIG TIME

LEADERS IN THE HAWKEYE

STATE, LIKE CONGRESSMAN

STEVE KING, AND PRO FAMILY

KING-MAKER BOB

VANDERPLAST.

CRUZ IS WORKING THE PASTOR

CIRCUIT HARD AS WELL.

HE HAS MADE SOME GOOD

IN-ROADS THERE, TOO.

AS A MATTER OF FACT,

BREAKING NEWS, "THE BRODY

FILE" REPORTS THIS WEEK

THAT CRUZ IS GOING TO HOLD

A PRIVATE MEETING WITH

PASTORS IN LATE JANUARY.

THAT IS ONE WEEK BEFORE

THE CAUCUS COMMENCES.

SAY THAT FIVE TIMES FAST.

ANYHOW, IS CRUZ PEAKING

TOO EARLY?

WE JUST DON'T KNOW RIGHT

NOW.

BUT RICK SANTORUM AND MIKE

HUCKABEE ARE HITTING HIM

AS A GUY WHO IS SORT OF A

STATES' RIGHTS,

LIBERTARIAN GUY, RATHER

THAN A DIE-HARD SOCIAL

CONSERVATIVE WHO WILL GO

TO THE MAT ON ISSUES LIKE

GAY MARRIAGE AND ABORTION.

SO WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO

SEE HOW IT GOES OUT THERE,

AND WHETHER OR NOT ALL OF

THIS DINGS HIM UP AND

AFFECTS HIS POLL NUMBERS.

THE ATTACKS BY HUCKABEE

AND SANTORUM COULD BE

GREAT NEWS FOR DONALD

TRUMP.

THAT'S BECAUSE THOSE

ATTACKS COULD TAKE AWAY

EVANGELICAL SUPPORT FOR

CRUZ IN IOWA AND LEAVE THE

DOOR OPEN FOR TRUMP TO WIN

THE STATE OF IOWA.

YOU KNOW, WE ALL KNOW HIS

POLL NUMBERS, TRUMP'S POLL

NUMBERS NATIONALLY ARE

HUGE, HUGE.

BUT WILL IT ALL TRANSLATE

INTO ACTUAL VOTES WHEN WE

GET GOING HERE SHORTLY.

TRUMP IS TAKING NO

CHANCES.

HE'S SPENDING $2 MILLION A

WEEK ON CAMPAIGN ADS IN

THE EARLY STATES OF IOWA

AND NEW HAMPSHIRE.

HERE IS THE AD.

THE POLITICIANS CAN

PRETEND IT IS NOTHING

ELSE, BUT DONALD TRUMP

CALLS IT RADICAL ISLAMIC

TERRORISM.

THAT'S WHY HE IS CALLING

FOR A TEMPORARY SHUTDOWN

ON MUSLIMS ENTERING THE

UNITED STATES UNTIL WE CAN

FIGURE OUT WHAT GOING ON.

HE WILL TAKE LIA THEIR OIL AND

HE'LL STOP ILLEGAL

IMMIGRATION BY BUILDING A

WALL ON OUR SOUTHERN

BORDER AND MAKE MEXICO PAY

FOR IT.

David: THE CRITICS

HAVE BEEN WRITING HIM OFF

FOR MONTHS, BUT HE IS

STILL A FORCE IN POLITICS.

NOW FOR HILLARY CLINTON,

SHE IS GOING TO BE THE

DEMOCRATIC NOMINEE.

I KNOW.

I KNOW.

SHOCKING.

WE ALL KNOW HOW THIS IS

GOING TO END.

BUT IN THE MEANTIME, SHE

IS STILL TAKING SOME HITS

ABOUT CERTAIN THINGS THAT

ARE QUITE INTERESTING,

ESPECIALLY IN THE TWITTER

WORLD.

HOW ABOUT THIS ONE: A

CLASSIC PANDERING MOVE TO

THE HISPANIC COMMUNITY.

HER CAMPAIGN DECIDED TO

PUT UP THIS ON THEIR

WEBSITE.

HERE IT IS, SEVEN THINGS

HILLARY CLINTON HAS IN

COMMON WITH YOUR ABUELA.

THAT MEANS GRANDMOTHER IN

SPANISH.

YES, HELLAR HILLARY IS A

GRANDMOTHER.

SHE GOT BLASTED FOR THIS

MOVE.

THEY SAY, HILLARY, YOU

DIDN'T GROW UP POOR LIKE

MY ABUELA.

AND WE LIKE THIS TWEET,

UNDER THE HASHTAG, NIGHT NOT MY

ABUELA.

ONE OF MY ABUELA'S WORKED

WASHING DISHES AND PICKING

COFFEE SINCE SHE WAS 11

YEARS OLD.

HILHILLARY IS NOT MY ABUELA.

AND WE HAVE NOTICED ON THE

CAMPAIGN TRAIL, THE ONLY

CANDIDATE THAT HILLARY

CANDIDATE IS TALKING ABOUT

IS -- GUESS WHO -- DONALD

TRUMP.

AND DONALD TRUMP IS

FOCUSING ON HILLARY

CLINTON AS WELL.

IT IS LIKE THEY'RE ALREADY

IN A GENERAL ELECTION

MATCHUP.

AND IT IS THE SUBJECT OF A

BRODY FILE COMMENTARY.

COULD WE BE IN FOR A

TRUMP/CLINTON GENERAL

ELECTION SHOWDOWN THIS

FALL?

STRANGER THINGS HAVE

HAPPENED.

ACTUALLY, STRANGER THINGS

HAVE NOT HAPPENED.

WHO KNOWS WHAT IS IN

STORE.

BUT WE HAVE NOTICED THAT

TRUMP HAS BEEN PRETTY MUCH

GOING AFTER HILLARY AT HIS

RECENT RALLIES.

IT HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR

ABOUT A MONTH.

AND HE IS NOT JUST

BRINGING OF BENGHAZI OR

HER TENURE AS SECRETARY OF

STATE.

HE IS ALSO BRINGING UP

BILL CLINTON'S PAST SEXUAL

ADULTERY EPISODES,

EMPHASIZE ON THE PLURAL.

TRUMP IS THE ONLY

CANDIDATE THAT WILL

ACTUALLY GO THERE, IF YOU

KNOW WHAT I MEAN?

AND THERE ARE PLENTY OF

CONSERVATIVE VOTERS WHO

LOVE THE FACT THAT HE HAS

THE GUTS TO DO IT.

ALSO, TRUMP IS A MASTER AS

DEFINING THE NARRATIVE.

SO BY CONTINUALLY GOING

AFTER HILLARY, HE STARTS

TO PAINT HIS RACE AS AN

ALREADY DONE DEAL AND THAT

HE IS GOING TO BE THE

NOMINEE.

IT IS TRUE.

AND AS FOR HILLARY, SHE IS

FIGURING, TAKING ON TRUMP

ONLY HAS BENEFITS BECAUSE

SHE THINKS HE IS UNHINGED,

FIRST OF ALL, AND SHE

STARTS ATTACKING TRUMP, SO

THAT WILL PLAY WELL, IN

HER MIND, TO WOMEN VOTERS,

HISPANIC VOTERS, SO,

REALLY, IT MAKES SENSE FOR

BOTH OF THEM TO TARGET

EACH OTHER.@W

> ALL RIGHT, WHEN WE

COME BACK, YOU KNOW THAT

PESKY CONGRESS IS GETTING

IN THE WAY AGAIN, SO

PRESIDENT OBAMA IS GETTING

OUT THAT EXECUTIVE ORDER

PEN.

OH, MY GOSH.

WE EXPLAIN THAT.

David: AND WE'RE

BACK ON "THE BRODY FILE"

SHOW.

ONE OF THE BIG PUBLIC

POLICY ISSUES THAT

PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS BEEN

TRYING TO PUSH THROUGH FOR

YEARS DURING THIS

PRESIDENCY HAS BEEN SOME

SORT OF GUN CONTROL BILL

UP ON CAPITOL HILL.

WELL, HE HAS HAD NO LUCK

TRYING TO GO THROUGH

CONGRESS, SO WE ALL KNOW

HE'S GOT A PEN, HE'S GOT A

PHONE, AND HE'S AT IT

AGAIN.

AND TO GET MORE ANSWERS,

WE TURN TO JENNY AND THE

"B" BLOCK.

*

* YOU GO, GIRL

David: JENNIFER

WISHON STANDING BY AT THE

WHITE HOUSE WITH MORE ON

ALL OF THIS.

Jennifer: DAVID,

PRESIDENT OBAMA IS WORKING

TO ENSURE MORE GUN BUYERS

HAVE TO SUBMIT TO

BACKGROUND CHECKS.

HE IS ALSO CALLING ON

VOTERS TO KICK OUT MEMBERS

OF CONGRESS WHO AREN'T

WILLING TO PUT MORE

RESTRICTIONS ON GUNS.

PETER REID LOST HIS

DAUGHTER, MARY, NEARLY

NINE YEARS AGO WHEN A

DISTURBED STUDENT OPENED

FIRE AT VIRGINIA TECH.

SINCE THEN HE HAS PUSHED

FOR MORE BACKGROUND CHECKS

ON GUN BUYERS.

IT IS HARD FOR ME TO

UNDERSTAND WHY ANYBODY

WOULD WANT TO GET IN THE

WAY OF A BACKGROUND CHECK.

TO MAKE SURE PEOPLE WHO

ARE LEGALLY PREVENTED FROM

OWNING A FIREARM CAN'T BUY

THE FIREARM.

Reporter: REID STOOD

WITH PRESIDENT OBAMA AS HE

ANNOUNCED PLANS TO SKIRT

CONGRESS AND TAKE ACTION

ON GUNS, WIPING TEARS AS

HE REMEMBERED THE MASS

SHOOTING AT SANDY HOOK

ELEMENTARY SCHOOL.

President Obama:

EVERY TIME I THINK ABOUT

THOSE KIDS, IT GETS ME

MADE.

Jennifer: THE

PRESIDENT WANTS TO CLARIFY

EXISTING LAW: ANYONE WHO

SELLS LAWS MUST GET A

LICENSE AND CONDUCT

BACKGROUND CHECKS ON

BUYERS.

HE WANTS TO HIRE 200

A.T.F. AGENTS TO BETTER

ENFORCE THE EXISTING GUN

LAWS.

AND HE'LL ASK CONGRESS FOR

$500 MILLION TO EXPAND

MENTAL HEALTH TREATMENT.

AND HE WANTS TO UPGRADE

GUN SAFETY TECHNOLOGY.

THE PRESIDENT ACKNOWLEDGES

CONGRESS WON'T LIKELY

CHANGE GUN LAWS FOR A LONG

TIME.

INSTEAD, HE IS FOCUSING ON

THE GUN LOBBY, PORTRAYING

THE NATIONAL RIFLE

ASSOCIATION AS THE BIG,

BAD WOLF.

President Obama: THE

GUN LOBBY MAY BE HOLDING

CONGRESS HOSTAGE RIGHT

NOW, BUT THEY CANNOT HOLD

AMERICA HOSTAGE.

Jennifer: THE N.R.A.

FIRED BACK TWEETING: THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE DO NOT

NEED MORE EMOTIONAL,

CONDESCENDING LECTURES

THAT ARE COMPLETELY DEVOID

OF THE FACTS."

IN A STATEMENT, THEY

ACCUSED THE PRESIDENT OF

TRYING TO ATTRACT

ATTENTION AWAY FROM HIS

LACK OF A COHERENT

STRATEGY TO KEEP THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE SAFE FROM

TERRORIST ATTACKS.

PAUL RYAN PROMISED THE

PRESIDENT'S ACTIONS WILL

BE CHALLENGED IN COURT.

HE SAYS THE PRESIDENT HAS

NEVER RESPECTED THE RIGHT

TO SAFE AND LEGAL GUN

OWNERSHIP THAT OUR NATION

HAS VALUED SINCE ITS

FOUNDING.

MOST OF THE G.O.P.

HOPEFULS PROMISE THEY'LL

UNDO THE EXECUTIVE ACTION,

AWARE HIS ACTIONS HAVE

LITTLE STAYING POWER IF A

REPUBLICAN SUCCEEDS HIM IN

THE WHITE HOUSE.

THE PRESIDENT CALLED ON

VOTERS TO DEMAND GUN

CONTROL AT THE BALLOT BOX.

President Obama: IF

YOU MAKE IT HARD FOR THEM

TO WIN AN ELECTION IF YOU

BLOCK THAT, THEY'LL CHANGE

COURSE.

Jennifer: AND WE CAN

EXPECT THE PRESIDENT TO

TALK MORE ABOUT GUNS

DURING HIS LAST STATE OF

THE UNION ADDRESS, COMING

UP IN A FEW DAYS, THAT

WITH MORE OF HIS AMBITIOUS

AGENDA AS HE BEGINS HIS

FINAL YEAR HERE IN THE

WHITE HOUSE.

David: THANK YOU,

JENNIFER.

JENNIFER WISHON FROM THE

FRIGID WHITE HOUSE.

WHEN "THE BRODY FILE"

COMES BACK, A CONVERSATION

WITH ONE OF THE LEADING

EVANGELICAL VOICES IN THE

COUNTRY.

HE'LL TALK ABOUT WHAT

EVANGELICALS NEED TO THINK

ABOUT WHEN VOTING FOR A

PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE.

WE'RE BACK IN A MINUTE.

David: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE BRODY FILE,"

EVERYBODY.

TIME NOW FOR OUR

CONVERSATION WITH

DR. RUSSELL MOORE.

HE IS A MOVER, HE IS A

SHAKER IN EVANGELICAL

CIRCLES.

HE IS HEAD OF THE SOUTHERN

BAPTIST ETHICS AND

RELIGIONS LIBERTY

COMMISSION.

THAT'S A MOUTHFUL.

HE HAS MADE A FEW WAVES

FOR EMPHASIZING MORE OF

THE COMPASSIONATE MESSAGE

OF THE GOSPEL.

SO THAT IS, INDEE HAS INDEED RUFFLED

SOME FEATHERS.

PART OF OUR CONVERSATION

CENTERED ON SOME OF THE

EVANGELICAL CANDIDATES

RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT, AND

WHAT EVANGELICALS NEED TO

THINK ABOUT WHEN CHOOSING

THE RIGHT ONE.

I FEEL LIKE I'M ON A

REALITY SHOW AND I CAN'T

ESCAPE.

David: BEN CARSON,

REAL QUICK, HE GAVE AN

INTERVIEW WITH SALLY

QUINN, AND HE TALKS ABOUT

HOW HE DOESN'T BELIEVE IN

A PHYSICAL PLACE CALLED

HELL, AND HE DOESN'T

BELIEVE IN THE RAPTURE.

THERE MIGHT BE SOME OTHER

THINGS THAT MIGHT GIVE

EVANGELICALS SOME PAUSE.

DID THAT TAKE YOU BACK?

IT DIDN'T SURPRISE ME

BECAUSE BEN CARSON IS A

SEVENTH DAY ADVENTIST.

WE HAVE SO MANY

EVANGELICALS WHO BELIEVE

THAT BEN CARSON IS RIGHT

OUT OF VACATION BIBLE

SCHOOL, WHEN HE IS IN A

PARTICULAR CHURCH THAT

HOLDS TO VERY UNORTHODOX

DOCTRINES.

NOW, HAVING SAID THAT, I

DON'T THINK THAT

DISQUALIFIES HIM FROM THE

PRESIDENCY ANY MORE THAN I

THINK THAT MORMONISM

DISQUALIFIED MITT ROMNEY.

ONE DOESN'T NEED TO BE

SOMEONE WE WOULD WANT

TEACHING SUNDAY SCHOOL IN

ORDER TO FAITHFULLY

EXECUTE THE OFFICE.

WHAT IT DOES MEAN, THOUGH,

IS I THINK WE OUGHT TO

STOP TRYING TO MAKE OUR

POLITICAL LEADERS INTO

SPIRITUAL MASCOTS WHEN

THEY'RE NOT ABLE TO CARRY

THAT BURDEN AND SHOULDN'T

BE ASKED TO CARRY THAT

BURDEN.

SO I THINK OF THE EXAMPLE

OF THOMAS JEFFERSON.

MY BAPTIST ANCESTORS, BACK

IN THE FOUNDING ERA, WERE

WILLING TO ALIGN

THEMSELVES WITH THOMAS

JEFFERSON, EVEN THOUGH HE

WAS CERTAINLY NOT ANYONE

WE WOULD WANT TEACHING

ANYTHING BEHIND THE

PULPIT.

BUT HE HAD A COMMON

INTEREST IN RELIGIONS

LIBERTY AND FREEDOM, AND

THEY WERE WILLING TO MAKE

AN ALLIANCE ON THOSE

ISSUES.

I THINK THE SAME THING CAN

BE TRUE FOR PRESIDENTIAL

CANDIDATES.

David: ALL RIGHT.

LET ME -- SPEAKING ABOUT

SPIRITUAL MASCOTS, THE

PERSON WHO DIDN'T COME TO

MIND NECESSARILY IS DONALD

TRUMP.

UH-HUH.

David: ARE YOU

SHAKING YOUR HEAD AT ALL

OF THIS, WONDERING?

AT ONEPOIN ONE POINT HE WAS

LEADING WITH EVANGELICALS,

AND I DON'T THINK HE IS

LEADING NOW, BUT HE IS

STILL IN THE MIX.

I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHERE TO

BEGIN.

THE FLOOR IS YOURS.

I'M REALLY DISCOURAGED

AND DISTURBED BY WHAT WE

SEE IN THE DONALD TRUMP

PHENOMENON.

NOT ONLY BECAUSE OF THE

LACK OF SERIOUSNESS THAT

WE'VE SEEN IN THE CAMPAIGN

TO THIS POINT, BUT ALSO

BECAUSE OF SOME REALLY

TROUBLING STATEMENTS AND

POLICY PROPOSALS THAT HAVE

BEEN COMING FORWARD.

AS SOMEONE WHO IS DEEPLY

CONCERNED ABOUT RELIGIOUS

LIBERTY, THE SORTS OF OFF

THE CUFF COMMENTS THAT

TRUMP IS MAKING ABOUT

MOSQUES AND MUSLIMS AND SO

FORTH, NO MATTER HOW HE

ATTEMPTS TO WALK THEM

BACK, THE INSTINCT THERE

IS ONE THAT IS TERRIFYING

TO ME.

BECAUSE IF YOU CAN HAVE A

GOVERNMENT THAT CAN

REGISTER MUSLIMS AND DO

AWAY WITH MOSQUES, THAT'S

A GOVERNMENT THAT

ULTIMATELY CAN DO THE SAME

THING FOR EVANGELICAL

CHRISTIANS.

SO NOW, MORE THAN EVER, WE

NEED A PRESIDENT WHO

REALLY UNDERSTANDS

RELIGIOUS LIBERTY FOR ALL

PEOPLE AND IS WILLING TO

PRIZE THAT AND GUARD THAT

BECAUSE WE'RE IN A TIME

WHERE RELIGIOUS LIBERTY IS

UNDER ASSAULT SINCE IT

HASN'T BEEN IN, I THINK,

SINCE THE FOUNDING ERA.

David: LET ME ASK

YOU ABOUT MARCO RUBIO.

IT BLEW ME AWAY.

I KNOW IT BLEW THE PASTORS

AWAY.

I CAN'T REMEMBER A

PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE

WAXING POETIC ABOUT THE

GOSPEL IN A PRESIDENTIAL

PRIMARY SEASON.

IT WAS PRETTY AMAZING.

I'VE BEEN WORKING WITH

MARCO RUBIO ON VARIOUS

ISSUES FOR YEARS.

MANY TIMES I'VE HOSTED HIM

WITH A GROUP OF PASTORS,

INCLUDING WELL BEFORE HE

WAS EVER A CANDIDATE FOR

PRESIDENT.

AND IN EVERY ONE OF THOSE

INSTANCES, PEOPLE WOULD

WALK AWAY BLOWN AWAY AND

AMAZED BY WHAT HE HAD TO

SAY.

I THINK THE REASON HE WAS

EFFECTIVE IN THAT CROWD IS

BECAUSE HE IS NOT MEETING

WITH STAFF MEMBERS TO TRY

TO FIND EVANGELICALESE EVANGELICALESE IN

ORDER TO SPEAK.

HE REALLY DOES HAVE DEEP

CONNECTIONS, NOT ONLY IN

HIS CATHOLIC FAITH, AND

HIS WIFE IS A MEMBER OF

CHRIST FELLOWSHIP CHURCH

IN MIAMI, AND HE ATTENDS

WITH HER AND THE KIDS AS

WELL.

HE HAS CLOSE RELATIONSHIPS

WITH MANY OF US IN

EVANGELICALISM, AND THEN

IN HIS OWN COMMUNITY.

SO I THINK THERE IS

SOMETHING VERY REAL THERE.

David: LAST

QUESTION -- I SAID IT TWO

QUESTIONS AGO -- WHAT DO

WE EVANGELICALS NEED TO

THINK ABOUT AS WE TRY TO

SIFT THROUGH ALL OF THIS

AND MAKE A DECISION FOR

PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE?

WHAT KIND OF CHECK LIST DO

WE NEED TO PROCESS

THROUGH?

EVANGELICALS SHOULD

THINK THROUGH WHAT ARE THE

ISSUES THAT ARE NON-

NON-NEGOTIABLES FOR US.

WE STR T HAVE TO HAVE A

CANDIDATE WHO VALUES HUMAN

LIFE AND WHO VALUES THE

FAMILY.

AND ONE WHO CARES ABOUT

PERSECUTED INDIVIDUALS

AROUND THE WORLD.

AND THEN TO SAY WHO CAN WE

SEE COMPETENTLY CARRYING

OUT THE ROMANS 13 MISSION

OF ADMINISTERING JUSTICE,

AS LEADER OF THIS COUNTRY,

REGARDLESS OF WHETHER OR

NOT WE SEE THAT PERSON AS

A BROTHER OR SISTER IN

CHRIST.

IS THAT PERSON ABLE TO DO

THAT WITH JUSTICE?

AND THEN CAN THIS PERSON

WIN?

I MEAN, AS YOU'RE THINKING

THIS THROUGH, THIS IS AN

IMPORTANT CHARACTERISTIC.

IS THIS SOMEONE WHO CAN

APPEAL TO THE REST OF THE

COUNTRY, WHO CAN BUILD

COALITIONS, AND THEN AFTER

ELECTION, SOMEONE WHO CAN

GOVERN, SOMEONE WHO CAN

DEAL WITH PEOPLE IN THE

HOUSE AND IN THE SENATE.

AND MAYBE EVEN MORE

IMPORTANTLY, IN MY MIND,

SOMEBODY WHO CAN TAKE ON

THE REGULATORY BUREAUCRACY

OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.

David: DR. RUSSELL

MOORE HERE ON "THE BRODY

FILE."

ALL RIGHT, WHEN WE COME

BACK, TRYING TO MAKE SENSE

OF THE PRESIDENTIAL

CAMPAIGN BLITZ THAT IS

COMING SOON.

WE'RE GOING INSIDE THE

NUMBERS WITH AMBER C.

STRONG NEXT.

David: WELCOME BACK,

EVERYBODY.

CAN YOU BELIEVE THERE ARE

ONLY 11 MONTHS UNTIL THE

GENERAL ELECTION?

THAT'S RIGHT.

BEFORE THAT, WE'VE GOT

DEBATE AFTER DEBATE,

PRIMARY AFTER PRIMARY.

WE'VE GOT FAST FOOD

RESTAURANT AFTER FAST FOOD

RESTAURANT.

IT IS CRAZY.

WE KNOW IT IS CRAZY FOR

US, SO HERE TO BREAK DOWN

EVERY CAUCUS, EVERY

PRIMARY, EVERY MAJOR EVENT

LEAVING UP TO ELECTION DAY

IS OUR OWN "BRODY FILE"

PRODUCER AMBER C. STRONG.

THE CAMPAIGN SEASON IS

CRAZIER THAN EVER, BUT WE

HAVE SOMETHING WE LIKE TO

CALL "THE CAMPAIGN

BREAKDOWN."

WE WILL BEGIN BY FOCUSING

ON THE REPUBLICAN RACE

BECAUSE, LET'S FACE IT, ON

THE LEFT THERE ARE

BASICALLY TWO OPTIONS.

SORRY, I SAID IT.

SO, THERE ARE FIVE MAJOR

CAUCUS AND PRIMARY DAYS IN

FOUR DIFFERENT STATES

COVERING THE G.O.P.

UNTIL THE BIG DECISION,

WHICH IS, BY THE WAY, IN

JULY OF 2016.

WE HAVE THE IOWA CAUCUS,

THE FIRST IN THE NATION

BECAUSE IT IS I THE FIRST

CAUCUS TO OCCUR.

IT SETS THE TONE AND

MOMENTUM FOR THE POTENTIAL

WINNER AND WILL NARROW THE

FIELD OF CANDIDATES.

A WIN IN IOWA COULD MEAN

MAJOR BACKING AND DONOR

SUPPORT.

SOMETIMES IT MEANS YOU END

UP BEING THE PARTY'S

NOMINEE.

AND SOMETIMES IT DOESN'T.

> THEN WE HAVE THE MAJOR

PRIMARIES.

THERE ARE TWO: NEW

HAMPSHIRE AND SOUTH

CAROLINA.

AFTER THAT, A FEW DAYS

DOWN THE ROAD, IT IS THE

NEVADA CAUCUS, AND THEN WE

END UP TO THE BIG MAIN

COURSE, WHICH IS SUPER

TUESDAY.

THAT'S WHEN ANOTHER 12

STATES DECIDE THEIR

DELEGATES.

IN MID-JULY WE ARRIVE AT

THE CONVENTION.

EACH PARTY WILL HOLD A

CONVENTION TO ANNOUNCE

THEIR PROSPECTIVE

CANDIDATES.

WE HEAR SPEECHES.

THE HOPE OF A SKINNY

KID WITH A FUNNY NAME WHO

BELIEVES THAT AMERICA HAS

A PLACE FOR HIM, TOO.

[APPLAUSE]

Reporter: AND GEAR UP

FOR THE MAIN DEBATE,

STARTING TWO MONTHS LATER

IN MID-SEPTEMBER.

*

Reporter: THERE ARE

FOUR DEBATES FOR THE

NOMINEES FROM BOTH PARTIES

AND ANY INDEPENDENTS THAT

HAPPEN TO COME ALONG.

WE'RE OFF TO A POLITICAL

CAGE MATCH.

NOT REALLY.

THEN ON NOVEMBER 8, 2016,

YOU HEAD TO THE POLLS AND

ELECT THE NEXT PRESIDENT

OF THE UNITED STATES.

WELL, SORT OF, IF YOU TAKE

INTO ACCOUNT THE ELECTORAL

COLLEGE HAS A WHOLE OTHER

BREAKDOWN.

SO THERE YOU HAVE IT, A

SLEW OF DEBATES, CAUCASUS,

PRIMARIES, AND TWO

CONVENTIONS AWAY FROM YOU

DECIDING THE ONE LEADER OF

THE FREE WORLD.

IF IT IS STILL TOO MUCH,

WE UNDERSTAND.

FOLLOW US ON TWITTER AT

"THE BRODY FILE," AND AT

AMBER C. STRONG FOR ALL OF

THE CAMPAIGN HAPPENINGS.

David: AMBER C.

STRONG GOING TO BE ALONG

FOR THE RIDE IN 2016.

ALONG WITH THE WHOLE

"BRODY FILE" CREW, WE'RE

LOOKING FORWARD TO GAINING

SOME WEIGHT.

> UP NEXT, STUPID

CRIMINAL TRICKS MAKING US

GOIVGO OY-GEVALT.

David: WELCOME BACK.

IF YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT

"THE BRODY FILE," WE LOVE

TWO THINGS HERE, FOOD, OF

COURSE, AND THE MISHAPS OF

WANNABE CRIMINALS.

THIS WEEK'S OY-VEY MOMENT

OF THE WEEK SERVES UP THE

BEST OF BOTH WORLDS.

*

[HAVA NAGILA]

David: MEET OUR

BRAND OF CRIMINAL

MASTERMIND.

OFFICERS ARRESTED THE TRIO

AFTER A HEIST AT A BURGER

JOINT IN NEW YORK.

IN ADDITION TO GRABBING

SOME LOOSE CHANGE, THE

THREE MADE OFF WITH A

LARGE BOWL OF MACARONI

SALAD.

APPARENTLY IT WAS TOO GOOD

TO LEAVE BEHIND BECAUSE

THE POLICE CAUGHT UP WITH

THE CRIMINALS BY FOLLOWING

A TRAIL OF MACARONI THAT

THEY LEFT BEHIND AS THEY

MADE THEIR GET-AWAY.

WAY TO GO, CRIMINALS.

YOU GO FOR THE MACARONI

SALAD AND THEN LITERALLY

LEAVE THE EVIDENCE BEHIND.

I MEAN, MACARONI SALAD,

REALLY?

ARE YOU GOING TO GO FOR

THE FRUITCAKE NEXT?

OY-GEVALT.

THAT'S IT, EVERYBODY.

HAVE A GREAT WEEK.

GOD BLESS.

WE'LL SEE YOU NEXT TIME.
