  • THE NEWS, OF COURSE, THIS WEEKEND IS THE SITUATION HAS
  • 00:01:06.100 --> 00:01:09.290
  • ESCALATED WITH NORTH KOREA; THE PRESIDENT SAYING THE TIME FOR
  • 00:01:10.000 --> 00:01:12.060
  • STRATEGIC PATIENCE IS OVER. YOU'VE HAD AN INTERCONTINENTAL
  • 00:01:12.070 --> 00:01:17.170
  • BALLISTIC MISSILE TEST THAT WENT ALMOST 700 MILES INTO THE SEA OF
  • 00:01:17.180 --> 00:01:21.280
  • JAPAN. THAT'S A MISSILE CAPABLE OF REACHING ALASKA. THE
  • 00:01:21.290 --> 00:01:25.170
  • INTERESTING COMMENTS NOW COMING OUT FROM THE COMBINED STATEMENT
  • 00:01:25.180 --> 00:01:29.070
  • ON ALLIANCE RESPONSE, LET ME READ YOU THIS QUOTE FROM GENERAL
  • 00:01:29.080 --> 00:01:33.000
  • BROOKS, SELF RESTRAINT, WHICH IS A CHOICE, IS ALL THAT
  • 00:01:33.010 --> 00:01:35.220
  • SEPARATES ARMISTICE AND WAR AS THIS ALLIANCE MISSILE LIVE FIRE
  • 00:01:35.230 --> 00:01:39.170
  • SHOWS, WE ARE ABLE TO CHANGE OUR CHOICE WHEN SO ORDERED BY OUR
  • 00:01:39.180 --> 00:01:42.090
  • ALLIANCE NATIONAL LEADERS. IT WOULD BE A GRAVE MISTAKE FOR
  • 00:01:42.100 --> 00:01:45.060
  • ANYONE TO BELIEVE ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY. THE HEADLINE IN
  • 00:01:45.070 --> 00:01:49.000
  • THE WALL STREET JOURNAL IS THE U.S. TELLS NORTH KOREA IT'S
  • 00:01:49.010 --> 00:01:52.000
  • PREPARED TO GO TO WAR. THIS IS A VERY STRATEGIC TIME AND A VERY
  • 00:01:52.010 --> 00:01:56.000
  • STRATEGIC SITUATION DEVELOPING, JORDAN, RIGHT NOW. JORDAN
  • 00:01:56.010 --> 00:01:58.290
  • SEKULOW: YEAH, I MEAN, THESE ARE NOT, THIS AGAIN, KIND OF AND IN
  • 00:01:59.000 --> 00:02:01.250
  • COMPARISON TO WHAT'S HAPPENING IN SYRIA WHERE YOU CANNOT JUST
  • 00:02:01.260 --> 00:02:04.280
  • LOOK AT THIS AS NORTH KOREA AND THE UNITED STATES. IF NORTH
  • 00:02:04.290 --> 00:02:08.020
  • KOREA WAS ISOLATED IN A, LET'S SAY, IT WAS, YOU KNOW, AN
  • 00:02:08.030 --> 00:02:12.120
  • ISOLATED AREA THAT DID NOT BORDER CHINA, RUSSIA, AND SOUTH
  • 00:02:12.130 --> 00:02:15.260
  • KOREA, YOU COULD TAKE STRONGER MILITARY ACTION IMMEDIATELY. BUT
  • 00:02:15.270 --> 00:02:19.210
  • RIGHT NOW ANY KIND OF ACTION YOU TAKE, FIRST OF ALL, WE'VE GOT
  • 00:02:19.220 --> 00:02:22.130
  • 1.000S OF TROOPS RIGHT IN FIRING DISTANCE OF NORTH KOREA
  • 00:02:22.140 --> 00:02:25.270
  • ARTILLERY, SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA, A MAJOR INTERNATIONAL CAPITAL,
  • 00:02:25.280 --> 00:02:31.280
  • MILLIONS OF PEOPLE THAT WOULD BE IN RANGE OF JUST SMALL ARTILLERY
  • 00:02:31.290 --> 00:02:35.250
  • FIRE. SO IF YOU TAKE ANY KIND OF DIRECT ACTION, YOU'RE NOT JUST
  • 00:02:35.260 --> 00:02:40.010
  • PUTTING YOUR OWN TROOPS IN HARM'S WAY. IT'S NOT THE U.S.
  • 00:02:40.020 --> 00:02:44.120
  • AND NORTH KOREA. -RIGHT. -YOU'VE GOT THE RUSSIANS, THE
  • 00:02:44.130 --> 00:02:46.190
  • CHINESE AND, OF COURSE, THEN SOUTH KOREA, WHICH WOULD BE THE
  • 00:02:46.200 --> 00:02:49.060
  • TARGET OF NORTH KOREAN AGGRESSION. -NOW THE PRESIDENT
  • 00:02:49.070 --> 00:02:52.000
  • SENT OUT VIA TWITTER THAT, BASICALLY, THE CHINESE HAVE NOT
  • 00:02:52.010 --> 00:02:54.220
  • HELPED HERE. SO MUCH FOR THE CHINESE ASSISTANCE ON THIS IS
  • 00:02:54.230 --> 00:02:57.100
  • BASICALLY WHAT HE SAID. -WELL, I MEAN, THE CHINESE ARE THE
  • 00:02:57.110 --> 00:02:59.170
  • REASON WHY THIS LEADERSHIP IN NORTH KOREA, THE PEOPLE ARE
  • 00:02:59.180 --> 00:03:04.010
  • ALREADY STARVING THERE, THE PEOPLE ARE TREATED HORRIBLY.
  • 00:03:04.020 --> 00:03:06.130
  • -IN NORTH KOREA. -BUT THEY HAVE BOUGHT INTO THIS KIND OF
  • 00:03:06.140 --> 00:03:09.070
  • IDEOLOGY, -ALMOST LIKE A DEITY. THEY VIEW HIM AS A DEITY.
  • 00:03:09.080 --> 00:03:11.130
  • -REMEMBER, THERE ARE ENOUGH MILLIONS OF PEOPLE THERE,
  • 00:03:11.140 --> 00:03:13.290
  • INCLUDING A MILITARY, WHICH WAS PRETTY MISTREATED, I MEAN, YOU
  • 00:03:14.000 --> 00:03:17.120
  • LOOK AT THEM, THEY LOOK MALNOURISHED, EVEN THE MILITARY,
  • 00:03:17.130 --> 00:03:19.250
  • EVEN THEIR SPECIAL FORCES. AND THEY DON'T OVERTHROW THE
  • 00:03:19.260 --> 00:03:22.120
  • GOVERNMENT BECAUSE THEY'VE BOUGHT INTO THE IDEA OF THIS AS
  • 00:03:22.130 --> 00:03:24.190
  • BEING A GOD-LIKE FIGURE FOR DECADES-THIS FAMILY. -YEAH.
  • 00:03:24.200 --> 00:03:28.150
  • INTERGENERATIONALLY. -FOR THREE NOW. -RIGHT. -AND BECAUSE OF
  • 00:03:28.160 --> 00:03:30.240
  • THAT HOW DO YOU STARVE OUT THE REGIME? -NOT THE PEOPLE. WE'RE
  • 00:03:30.250 --> 00:03:36.020
  • TALKING ABOUT STARVING OUT THE REGIME. BECAUSE THE PEOPLE ARE
  • 00:03:36.030 --> 00:03:38.180
  • STARVING AS IT IS. -YES. -BUT NOW HE'S TALKING ABOUT THE
  • 00:03:38.190 --> 00:03:41.080
  • REGIME. WHAT'S THE PENALTY FOR THE REGIME FOR THE ACTIONS
  • 00:03:41.090 --> 00:03:43.190
  • THEY'RE TAKING? -YEAH, SO HE'S NOT ABLE TO FIND MEATS AND
  • 00:03:43.200 --> 00:03:46.200
  • LIQUEURS EVERY DAY AND HAVE WHATEVER HE WANTS IN THE WORLD
  • 00:03:46.210 --> 00:03:50.250
  • BECAUSE OF THE CHINESE. IT ALL OPERATES THROUGH CHINA IN
  • 00:03:50.260 --> 00:03:54.120
  • RELATIONSHIP WITH RUSSIA. BUT IT'S PRIMARILY CHINA PROPPING UP
  • 00:03:54.130 --> 00:03:57.120
  • THE ECONOMY. THAT MAY WORK WHEN NORTH KOREA IS NOT BEING
  • 00:03:57.130 --> 00:04:00.220
  • AGGRESSIVE, -BUT WHEN THEY'RE AGGRESSIVE, NOT SO MUCH. -NO IT
  • 00:04:00.230 --> 00:04:03.080
  • DOESN'T BECAUSE THAT'S THE REASON WHY THEY EVEN HAVE THE
  • 00:04:03.090 --> 00:04:06.000
  • MONEY TO TEST INTERCONTINENTAL BALLISTIC MISSLES. -IS BECAUSE
  • 00:04:06.010 --> 00:04:09.070
  • OF THE CHINESE. SO WE HAVE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT'S GOING ON HERE.
  • 00:04:09.080 --> 00:04:11.210
  • WE'RE GOING TO BE JOINED BY OUR 2 SENIOR MILITARY ANALYSTS. AND
  • 00:04:11.220 --> 00:04:14.040
  • BY THE WAY, COLONEL SKIP ASH WAS BASED IN KOREA, SO HE WILL BE
  • 00:04:14.050 --> 00:04:19.020
  • ABLE TO GIVE US SOME FIRST HAND IMPRESSIONS ON WHAT CAN AND
  • 00:04:19.030 --> 00:04:21.040
  • CANNOT BE DONE IN THAT REGARD. WE'VE GOT A LOT MORE TO DISCUSS
  • 00:04:21.050 --> 00:04:23.280
  • ON THIS WHOLE SITUATION WITH NORTH KOREA. STAY TUNED. MORE
  • 00:04:23.290 --> 00:04:27.020
  • ANALYSIS AHEAD.
  • 00:04:27.030 --> 00:04:29.050
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:04:29.060 --> 00:04:34.280
  • JAY SEKULOW: HEY, WELCOME BACK
  • 00:04:34.290 --> 00:04:35.190
  • TO THE BROADCAST EVERYONE.
  • 00:04:35.200 --> 00:04:36.270
  • OBVIOUSLY, THE ISSUE WITH KOREA FRONT AND CENTER. I WANT TO PLAY
  • 00:04:36.280 --> 00:04:38.110
  • FOR YOU WHAT THE PRESIDENT SAID JUST LAST WEEK ON THIS TIME FOR
  • 00:04:38.120 --> 00:04:41.140
  • STRATEGIC PATIENCE, WHICH IS KIND OF THE OBAMA
  • 00:04:41.150 --> 00:04:44.130
  • ADMINISTRATION'S VIEW ON THIS, HERE'S WHAT HE SAID VERY CLEAR:
  • 00:04:44.140 --> 00:04:49.130
  • PRESIDENT TRUMP: THE ERA OF STRATEGIC PATIENCE WITH THE
  • 00:04:49.140 --> 00:04:52.060
  • NORTH KOREAN REGIME HAS FAILED; MANY YEARS AND IT'S FAILED, AND
  • 00:04:52.070 --> 00:04:57.190
  • FRANKLY, THAT PATIENCE IS OVER. -ALRIGHT, I'M GOING TO BRING
  • 00:04:57.200 --> 00:05:00.220
  • SKIP ASH, COLONEL SKIP ASH, AND COLONEL WES SMITH INTO THE
  • 00:05:00.230 --> 00:05:04.030
  • CONVERSATION, BUT I WANT TO GO, JORDAN, THERE IS THE POLITICAL
  • 00:05:04.040 --> 00:05:06.240
  • SIDE OF THIS AS WELL, BECAUSE THE PRESIDENT HAS TO, WE'VE GOT
  • 00:05:06.250 --> 00:05:11.160
  • ALLIANCES AND, AS SKIP IS GOING TO SHARE IN A MOMENT, THERE'S
  • 00:05:11.170 --> 00:05:14.060
  • SOME VERY INTERESTING INTERTWINING HERE OF WHO'S ON
  • 00:05:14.070 --> 00:05:17.180
  • WHICH TEAM. I MEAN, IT'S VERY, VERY, BECAUSE YOU'VE GOT THE
  • 00:05:17.190 --> 00:05:20.250
  • CHINESE, YOU'VE GOT THE RUSSIANS AND THE IRANIANS. JORDAN
  • 00:05:20.260 --> 00:05:23.010
  • SEKULOW: AND IT'S NOT SO MUCH THAT THE CHINESE LOVE THE NORTH
  • 00:05:23.020 --> 00:05:25.170
  • KOREANS. I MEAN, I THINK THAT NEEDS TO BE CLEAR. IT'S THAT
  • 00:05:25.180 --> 00:05:28.040
  • THEY DON'T WANT TO HAVE TO DEAL WITH THE FALLOUT OF THE NORTH
  • 00:05:28.050 --> 00:05:31.110
  • KOREAN REGIME FALLING APART, AND THEN THE MASS INFLUX OF PEOPLE
  • 00:05:31.120 --> 00:05:34.280
  • ACROSS BORDERS. THAT IS WHY RUSSIA HAS, BASICALLY, SET UP A
  • 00:05:34.290 --> 00:05:38.160
  • MILITARY LINE OF DEFENSE; NOT BECAUSE THEY'RE WORRIED ABOUT
  • 00:05:38.170 --> 00:05:43.030
  • NORTH KOREA FIRING UPON THEM, BUT BECAUSE THEY'RE WORRIED THAT
  • 00:05:43.040 --> 00:05:45.270
  • IF THAT REGIME WAS TO FALL BECAUSE OF U.S. ACTION, WHICH
  • 00:05:45.280 --> 00:05:49.220
  • COULD HAPPEN VERY QUICKLY, -RIGHT. -AS WE'VE SEEN BEFORE,
  • 00:05:49.230 --> 00:05:53.000
  • THAT THEY WOULD HAVE SUCH AN INFLUX OF HUMANITARIAN CRISIS,
  • 00:05:53.010 --> 00:05:56.090
  • -CRISIS, YEAH. -THAT THESE ARE NOT COUNTRIES THAT NECESSARILY
  • 00:05:56.100 --> 00:05:58.240
  • HAVE THE RESOURCES, RUSSIA, AND THEN THE CHINESE, TO DEAL WITH
  • 00:05:58.250 --> 00:06:02.150
  • THAT KIND OF HUMANITARIAN CRISIS. -YEAH, SO LET'S LOOK AT
  • 00:06:02.160 --> 00:06:05.000
  • THE MILITARY SIDE. LET ME GO TO SKIP FIRST. SKIP, YOU SERVED IN
  • 00:06:05.010 --> 00:06:07.030
  • SOUTH KOREA. YOU WERE RIGHT ON THE DMZ. GIVE US YOUR IMPRESSION
  • 00:06:07.040 --> 00:06:11.030
  • OF WHAT'S AT PLAY RIGHT NOW AND WHAT ARE THE, THE PRESIDENT SAYS
  • 00:06:11.040 --> 00:06:13.160
  • THE TIME FOR STRATEGIC PATIENCE IS OVER, WHAT DOES THAT LEAVE US
  • 00:06:13.170 --> 00:06:16.190
  • WITH? SKIP ASH: WELL, THAT MEANS WE HAVE TO TAKE SOME ACTION
  • 00:06:16.200 --> 00:06:19.120
  • PRETTY QUICKLY THROUGH THE U.N. AND UNILATERALLY IF WE HAVE TO.
  • 00:06:19.130 --> 00:06:23.100
  • AND THAT IS WE NEED TO TALK TO OUR ALLIES. WE NEED TO MAKE SURE
  • 00:06:23.110 --> 00:06:26.160
  • THAT WE CUT OFF THE CONNECTION BETWEEN IRAN AND NORTH KOREA.
  • 00:06:26.170 --> 00:06:30.170
  • THESE ARE 2 PARIAH STATES AND THEY DEAL WITH EACH OTHER
  • 00:06:30.180 --> 00:06:33.040
  • FREELY. THAT'S WHERE A LOT OF THE MONEY COMES IN TO NORTH
  • 00:06:33.050 --> 00:06:36.020
  • KOREA AS THEY TRANSFER TECHNOLOGY, WHICH IS DANGEROUS
  • 00:06:36.030 --> 00:06:39.160
  • TO ISRAEL AND OURSELVES, INTO THE MIDDLE EAST. WE ALSO HAVE
  • 00:06:39.170 --> 00:06:42.140
  • THIS TIE, AND INTERESTING TIE WITH JAPAN. THERE'S A GROUP OF
  • 00:06:42.150 --> 00:06:45.190
  • KOREANS LIVING IN JAPAN THAT ACTUALLY RUN A GAMBLING
  • 00:06:45.200 --> 00:06:49.000
  • SYNDICATE WHERE THEY MAKE A LOT OF MONEY AND THAT MONEY IS
  • 00:06:49.010 --> 00:06:51.210
  • TRANSFERRED BY SHIP TO THE NORTH KOREANS ONCE OR TWICE A WEEK.
  • 00:06:51.220 --> 00:06:57.230
  • -AND THE JAPANESE GOVERNMENT KNOWS THIS IS GOING ON?
  • 00:06:57.240 --> 00:07:00.110
  • -THEY'VE KNOWN IT'S BEEN GOING ON FOR YEARS AND THEY'VE TRIED
  • 00:07:00.120 --> 00:07:03.050
  • TO DO THAT BECAUSE THEY THOUGHT THAT WOULD SORT OF LIMIT SOME OF
  • 00:07:03.060 --> 00:07:06.200
  • THE OPTIONS. THEY WOULD BE MORE FRIENDLY TOWARDS JAPAN KNOWING
  • 00:07:06.210 --> 00:07:09.120
  • THAT THEY DEPENDED ON JAPAN FOR MONEY. SO IT'S ONE OF THESE
  • 00:07:09.130 --> 00:07:12.180
  • STRANGE BEDFELLOWS THINGS WITH ALL THESE INTERCONNECTING
  • 00:07:12.190 --> 00:07:15.200
  • CONCERNS WITHIN THE REGION. -YOU'RE PROBABLY NOT GETTING
  • 00:07:15.210 --> 00:07:18.060
  • THAT CONVERSATION IN A LOT OF THE OTHER BROADCASTS YOU'RE
  • 00:07:18.070 --> 00:07:20.060
  • LISTENING TO, BUT AS I SAID, SKIP SERVED AS A COMMANDER IN
  • 00:07:20.070 --> 00:07:23.110
  • THE REGION. SO YOU'VE GOT THE JAPANESE, BECAUSE THE JAPANESE
  • 00:07:23.120 --> 00:07:26.210
  • HAVE TO FEEL THREATENED, SKIP, BY THE NORTH KOREA ACTION,
  • 00:07:26.220 --> 00:07:30.010
  • THOUGH, BECAUSE IT WAS AIMED AT THE SEA OF JAPAN. -OH,
  • 00:07:30.020 --> 00:07:32.090
  • DEFINITELY. IN FACT, THE JAPANESE CONGRESS, OR THEIR
  • 00:07:32.100 --> 00:07:35.000
  • PARLIAMENT, HAS BEGUN TO PASS LAWS. YOU KNOW, THEIR
  • 00:07:35.010 --> 00:07:37.270
  • CONSTITUTION SAYS THEY HAVE TO BE, THEY CAN'T MILITARIZE.
  • 00:07:37.280 --> 00:07:41.220
  • THEY'RE NOW IN THE PROCESS OF REMILITARIZING, WHICH HAS TO
  • 00:07:41.230 --> 00:07:44.170
  • CAUSE CONCERN THROUGHOUT THE REGION, ESPECIALLY AMONGST THE
  • 00:07:44.180 --> 00:07:47.140
  • CHINESE AND THE KOREANS BECAUSE OF PAST MILITARIZATION.
  • 00:07:47.150 --> 00:07:51.030
  • -ALRIGHT, SO COLONEL SMITH, LET'S TALK ABOUT THE
  • 00:07:51.040 --> 00:07:55.230
  • SIGNIFICANCE OF AN ICBM, INTERCONTINENTAL BALLISTIC
  • 00:07:55.240 --> 00:07:57.050
  • MISSILE. THAT WAS THE FIRST TIME THEY'VE BEEN ABLE TO DO THAT?
  • 00:07:57.060 --> 00:07:58.280
  • COLONEL WES SMITH: FIRST TIME THEY'VE DONE THAT. THEY'VE HAD
  • 00:07:58.290 --> 00:08:00.290
  • MEDIUM RANGE BALLISTIC MISSLES BUT THIS IS AN ICBM THAT WAS
  • 00:08:01.000 --> 00:08:04.270
  • CAPABLE, IT CRASHED ABOUT 580 MILES INTO THE SEA OF JAPAN, BUT
  • 00:08:04.280 --> 00:08:09.000
  • BASED ON ITS TRAJECTORY AND GOING INTO OUTERSPACE AND COMING
  • 00:08:09.010 --> 00:08:13.070
  • BACK IN REENTRY, WHICH IS REQUIRED OF AN ICBM, THEY
  • 00:08:13.080 --> 00:08:16.010
  • ESTIMATE THAT IT COULD REACH THE ENTIRE STATE OF ALASKA. AND OF
  • 00:08:16.020 --> 00:08:19.220
  • COURSE, WHAT IS TROUBLING ABOUT THIS, JAY, IS NOT ONLY THAT THEY
  • 00:08:19.230 --> 00:08:22.050
  • HAVE THIS TECHNOLOGY, BUT NORTH KOREA CLAIMS, AND OUR
  • 00:08:22.060 --> 00:08:28.010
  • INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY DOES NOT BELIEVE THE CLAIM, BUT WE DON'T
  • 00:08:28.020 --> 00:08:31.020
  • KNOW, THEY CLAIM THEY HAVE ALREADY MINIATURIZED A
  • 00:08:31.030 --> 00:08:34.010
  • THERMO-NUCLEAR WEAPON THAT THEY COULD PLACE ON THIS MISSILE. SO
  • 00:08:34.020 --> 00:08:37.070
  • IT'S A CRISIS ON SO MANY LEVELS. IT'S PROBABLY THE GREATEST
  • 00:08:37.080 --> 00:08:41.200
  • CRISIS THAT WE HAVE FACED IN THE UNITED STATES, AS FAR AS OUR
  • 00:08:41.210 --> 00:08:44.020
  • SECURITY GOES, IN SEVERAL YEARS. -YEAH. AND MAYBE DECADES.
  • 00:08:44.030 --> 00:08:47.050
  • JORDAN, YOU SAID CUT HIM OFF, THIS IS THE LEADER OF NORTH
  • 00:08:47.060 --> 00:08:52.050
  • KOREA, CUT HIM OFF FROM THE REST OF THE WORLD. RIGHT NOW HE'S
  • 00:08:52.060 --> 00:08:55.150
  • ENJOYING, PRETTY MUCH, A PASS. HIS PEOPLE ARE STARVING, AND
  • 00:08:55.160 --> 00:08:58.180
  • MILITARY IS STARVING, BUT HE'S NOT. -AND HIS TOP ELITES. I
  • 00:08:58.190 --> 00:09:01.280
  • MEAN, THEY'RE ALWAYS, HE COULD EXECUTE ANY OF THEM AT ANY TIME,
  • 00:09:01.290 --> 00:09:05.050
  • BUT DAY TO DAY, THEY LIVE A LIFESTYLE, WHICH IS, AGAIN, IT'S
  • 00:09:05.060 --> 00:09:10.200
  • LUXURIOUS IN A COUNTRY THAT IS STARVING. AND THEY CONTINUE TO
  • 00:09:10.210 --> 00:09:15.060
  • LIVE THAT LIFESTYLE AND SO WHEN HE CAN HAVE WHATEVER HE WANTS,
  • 00:09:15.070 --> 00:09:18.130
  • BASICALLY, AT HIS DISPOSAL AND HE CAN GIVE THAT TO HIS ELITES
  • 00:09:18.140 --> 00:09:22.010
  • AS WELL, THAT'S WHY YOU SEE, PYONGYANG, A LOT OF THOSE
  • 00:09:22.020 --> 00:09:25.100
  • BUILDINGS ARE EMPTY, BUT YOU SEE THE REST OF THE COUNTRY. LOOK AT
  • 00:09:25.110 --> 00:09:28.070
  • THE MAPS, THE ELECTRICITY, BASICALLY THAT'S THE ONLY CITY
  • 00:09:28.080 --> 00:09:30.200
  • WITH ELECTRICITY RUNNING ALL THE TIME. YET HE'S ABLE TO PROP THAT
  • 00:09:30.210 --> 00:09:35.010
  • UP BECAUSE OF THE CHINESE PRIMARILY. NOW THAT MAY WORK
  • 00:09:35.020 --> 00:09:38.280
  • WHEN THEY'RE NOT LAUNCHING ICBMS, -RIGHT. -BUT WHEN THEY
  • 00:09:38.290 --> 00:09:42.240
  • START DOING THAT, YOU HAVE TO PUT THE PRESSURE ON CHINA, SAY
  • 00:09:42.250 --> 00:09:45.030
  • THIS REGIME NEEDS TO BE STARVED OUT. HE NEEDS TO BE ABLE TO NOT
  • 00:09:45.040 --> 00:09:49.160
  • HAVE ACCESS TO FOOD. HE SHOULD NOT BE ABLE TO FEED HIS FAMILY.
  • 00:09:49.170 --> 00:09:52.230
  • JUST LIKE THE REST OF NORTH KOREANS WHO CAN'T FEED THEIR
  • 00:09:52.240 --> 00:09:55.090
  • FAMILY. YOU DO THAT, AND THINGS MAY QUIET DOWN VERY. -BUT THEY
  • 00:09:55.100 --> 00:09:58.140
  • DO VIEW HIM, I WANT EVERYBODY TO UNDERSTAND, THEY VIEW HIM AS A
  • 00:09:58.150 --> 00:10:00.200
  • DEITY. THIS IS A 3RD GENERATIONAL ASPECT. I WANT TO
  • 00:10:00.210 --> 00:10:03.260
  • GO AHEAD AND PLAY A STATEMENT FROM ADMIRAL HARRY HARRIS, WHO
  • 00:10:03.270 --> 00:10:07.240
  • IS OUR U.S. PACIFIC COMMAND HEAD. IT'S VERY SOBERING, I
  • 00:10:07.250 --> 00:10:11.240
  • MEAN, THIS IS WHAT HE SAID: ADMIRAL HARRY HARRIS: ALL
  • 00:10:11.250 --> 00:10:14.160
  • NATIONS NEED TO TAKE THIS THREAT SERIOUSLY BECAUSE NORTH KOREA'S
  • 00:10:14.170 --> 00:10:17.000
  • MISSILES POINT IN ALL DIRECTIONS. NORTH KOREA'S
  • 00:10:17.010 --> 00:10:20.020
  • CAPABILITIES ARE NOT YET AN EXISTENTIAL THREAT TO AMERICA,
  • 00:10:20.030 --> 00:10:24.090
  • BUT IF LEFT UNCHECKED, IT WILL EVENTUALLY MATCH THE CAPABILITY
  • 00:10:24.100 --> 00:10:28.140
  • TO HOSTILE RHETORIC. -SO WHAT THE ADMIRAL IS SAYING IS THAT
  • 00:10:28.150 --> 00:10:31.080
  • THEIR ACTIONS MAY ACTUALLY REACH THE SAME AS THEIR RHETORIC IF
  • 00:10:31.090 --> 00:10:34.190
  • THEY'RE LEFT UNCHECKED. SO THAT BEGS THE QUESTION, WHICH WE'LL
  • 00:10:34.200 --> 00:10:37.180
  • GET INTO, WHAT DO WE DO? WHAT ARE THE OPTIONS THAT WE HAVE,
  • 00:10:37.190 --> 00:10:40.010
  • THE UNITED STATES? LET'S GO AHEAD AND TAKE A CALL, LOGAN?
  • 00:10:40.020 --> 00:10:42.010
  • LOGAN SEKULOW: ALRIGHT, LET'S GO TO MICHAEL WHO IS CALLING FROM
  • 00:10:42.020 --> 00:10:44.120
  • CALIFORNIA ON LINE ONE. MICHAEL, YOU'RE ON THE AIR. -HI,
  • 00:10:44.130 --> 00:10:46.190
  • MICHAEL. GO HEAD. -YES, I JUST WANTED TO SAY THE HOUSE
  • 00:10:46.200 --> 00:10:51.060
  • COMMITTEE ACTION YESTERDAY TO RESCIND THE AUTHORIZATION FOR
  • 00:10:51.070 --> 00:10:56.240
  • USE OF FORCE, WOUDN'T THAT BE TRYING TO LIMIT PRESIDENT
  • 00:10:56.250 --> 00:10:59.170
  • TRUMP'S ABILITY TO MOVE, TO FIGHT ANYWHERE WITHOUT GOING
  • 00:10:59.180 --> 00:11:03.210
  • THROUGH CONGRESS? -SO YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT THE ABILITY OF THE
  • 00:11:03.220 --> 00:11:06.090
  • PRESIDENT TO TAKE MILIARY ACTION, SKIP, WITHOUT AN ACT OF
  • 00:11:06.100 --> 00:11:09.000
  • WAR. -WELL, IF YOU HAVE WARS IMMINENT, UNDER INTERNATIONAL
  • 00:11:09.010 --> 00:11:14.270
  • LAW AND UNDER DOMESTIC LAW, THE PRESIDENT'S PRIMARY
  • 00:11:14.280 --> 00:11:17.030
  • RESPONSIBILITY IS TO PROTECT THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES. AND
  • 00:11:17.040 --> 00:11:19.210
  • THEREFORE, HE CAN TAKE ACTION IN THE FACE OF IMMINENT THREAT TO
  • 00:11:19.220 --> 00:11:23.140
  • THE UNITED STATES, AND CONGRESS, IN THE PAST, AS FOLLOWED UP
  • 00:11:23.150 --> 00:11:26.080
  • AFTERWARDS TO MAKE THEIR STATEMENT ABOUT THAT. BUT HE HAS
  • 00:11:26.090 --> 00:11:30.150
  • AN OBLIGATION, AS COMMANDER IN CHIEF, TO DO WHAT HE DEEMS
  • 00:11:30.160 --> 00:11:33.090
  • NECESSARY AT THE TIME TO PROTECT US AND THAT MEANS HE DOESN'T
  • 00:11:33.100 --> 00:11:36.200
  • HAVE TO WAIT FOR A DECLARATION OF WAR OR AN AUTHORIZATION. IT'S
  • 00:11:36.210 --> 00:11:40.200
  • ALWAYS GOOD AND THOSE THINGS NEED TO HAPPEN, BUT IF THERE'S
  • 00:11:40.210 --> 00:11:44.040
  • AN EMERGENCY, HE HAS THE AUTHORITY FROM THE CONSTITUTION.
  • 00:11:44.050 --> 00:11:47.120
  • -IN YOUR VIEW, SKIP, MILITARILY, ARE WE AT THE
  • 00:11:47.130 --> 00:11:49.020
  • EMERGENCY STAGE YET, OR ARE WE GETTING VERY CLOSE? WHERE DO YOU
  • 00:11:49.030 --> 00:11:52.180
  • SEE IT? -I THINK WE'RE GETTING VERY CLOSE. I THINK WE NEED TO
  • 00:11:52.190 --> 00:11:55.030
  • TAKE STRONG DIPLOMATIC STEPS AND WE NEED TO SEE IF THE
  • 00:11:55.040 --> 00:11:57.220
  • INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY, ESPECIALLY RUSSIA, AND CHINA, IF
  • 00:11:57.230 --> 00:12:01.010
  • THEY'RE GOING TO SUPPORT US WITH A U.N. SECURITY COUNCIL
  • 00:12:01.020 --> 00:12:03.270
  • RESOLUTION THAT HAS REAL TEETH IN IT. THEN WE'LL KNOW WHERE WE
  • 00:12:03.280 --> 00:12:07.000
  • ARE. -SO THE SECURITY COUNCIL IS MEETING TODAY. CHINA, AS YOU
  • 00:12:07.010 --> 00:12:11.090
  • POINTED OUT BEFORE WE WENT ON AIR, WES, CHINA'S CHAIRING IT.
  • 00:12:11.100 --> 00:12:14.100
  • -RIGHT. -AND YOU ALSO POINTED OUT IN YOUR COMMENT THAT
  • 00:12:14.110 --> 00:12:17.190
  • YESTERDAY'S MISSILE WAS FIRED FROM A MOBILE LAUNCHER MAKING IT
  • 00:12:17.200 --> 00:12:19.290
  • MORE DIFFICULT TO PREDICT AND TO COUNTER. IT WAS A CHINESE MADE
  • 00:12:20.000 --> 00:12:22.140
  • TRUCK MOBILE LAUNCHER THAT WAS USED. -YES. -SO WHAT ARE THE
  • 00:12:22.150 --> 00:12:25.210
  • CHANCES OF THE CHINESE ENGAGING AT THE U.N. HERE IN YOUR VIEW?
  • 00:12:25.220 --> 00:12:28.090
  • -I THINK THAT THAT'S NOT LIKELY TO HAPPEN AT ALL. OF COURSE, THE
  • 00:12:28.100 --> 00:12:31.280
  • PRESIDENCY OF THE SECURITY COUNCIL ROTATES MONTH BY MONTH.
  • 00:12:31.290 --> 00:12:34.220
  • IT JUST HAPPENS TO BE CHINA'S MONTH. WE WERE THE PRESIDENT
  • 00:12:34.230 --> 00:12:37.090
  • LAST MONTH. CHINA'S RHETORIC AND THEIR OFFERS OF HELP, I THINK,
  • 00:12:37.100 --> 00:12:41.190
  • ARE PRETTY HOLLOW. -I THINK THE PRESIDENT'S KIND OF FIGURE, I
  • 00:12:41.200 --> 00:12:44.280
  • MEAN, THE RRESIDENT SEES THAT TOO RIGHT NOW. -THE PRESIDENT
  • 00:12:44.290 --> 00:12:47.140
  • TWEETED THIS MORNING THAT TRADE IN THE FIRST QUARTER OF THIS
  • 00:12:47.150 --> 00:12:50.060
  • YEAR BETWEEN NORTH KOREA AND CHINA WENT UP 40%. -40% UP. SO
  • 00:12:50.070 --> 00:12:53.020
  • THOSE OF YOU THAT ARE THINKING THAT WE JUST PUT PRESSURE ON
  • 00:12:53.030 --> 00:12:54.290
  • CHINA AND THAT'LL STOP IT, I MEAN, THAT DOES NOT APPEAR TO BE
  • 00:12:55.000 --> 00:12:56.200
  • THE CASE. -NO. THAT IS NOT A VIABLE OPTION. -I MEAN, IF THEY
  • 00:12:56.210 --> 00:12:58.260
  • WOULD ACTUALLY DO IT, IT MIGHT. -RIGHT. THE REAL KEY, SHORT OF
  • 00:12:58.270 --> 00:13:01.250
  • MILITARY ACTION, I THINK, IS TO SOMEHOW UNITE AND GALVANIZE THE
  • 00:13:01.260 --> 00:13:07.000
  • ENTIRE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY OTHER THAN RUSSIA AND CHINA. AND
  • 00:13:07.010 --> 00:13:10.100
  • AS JORDAN SAID, I MEAN, REALLY ISOLATE, ECONOMICALLY NORTH
  • 00:13:10.110 --> 00:13:13.280
  • KOREA ALMOST COMPLETELY. -BUT LET'S TALK ABOUT THIS, JORDAN,
  • 00:13:13.290 --> 00:13:16.090
  • THE IRAN CONNECTION HERE. AND SKIP, I WANT TO GO BACK TO YOU
  • 00:13:16.100 --> 00:13:18.100
  • ON THIS, I MEA,N, IRAN IS RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS. -OH,
  • 00:13:18.110 --> 00:13:20.240
  • THAT'S RIGHT. THEY'RE KIND OF TAKING THE TECHNOLOGY THEY HAVE,
  • 00:13:20.250 --> 00:13:23.180
  • WHICH THEY GET FROM PLACES LIKE RUSSIA NOW, THE MISSILES
  • 00:13:23.190 --> 00:13:28.150
  • SYSTEMS, THEIR MISSILES DEFENSE SYSTEMS, THE ICBM CAPABILITIES,
  • 00:13:28.160 --> 00:13:31.030
  • THEY'RE EXPORTING IT TO A REGIME. NOW HOW DOES, THINK
  • 00:13:31.040 --> 00:13:34.200
  • ABOUT IT LIKE THIS, NORTH KOREA, WITH ALL THE SANCTIONS AGAINST
  • 00:13:34.210 --> 00:13:37.240
  • IT, THE FACT THEY CAN'T EVEN FEED THEIR OWN PEOPLE, HOW ARE
  • 00:13:37.250 --> 00:13:41.080
  • THEY ABLE TO AFFORD, BECAUSE WITH THE RUSSIANS, THEY'RE NOT
  • 00:13:41.090 --> 00:13:45.050
  • DOING THIS FOR FREE OR THE IRANIANS ARE NOT DOING THIS FOR
  • 00:13:45.060 --> 00:13:48.020
  • FREE. THEY'RE GETTING PAID FOR THIS. SO HOW ARE THEY ABLE TO
  • 00:13:48.030 --> 00:13:51.050
  • SPEND THIS MONEY? WHERE'S THAT MONEY COMING FROM? IT'S COMING
  • 00:13:51.060 --> 00:13:54.030
  • FROM THE CHINESE, PRIMARILY, WHO ARE THEN GIVING THE MONEY TO
  • 00:13:54.040 --> 00:13:59.160
  • NORTH KOREA, AND THEN NORTH KOREA IS DOING BUSINESS WITH
  • 00:13:59.170 --> 00:14:02.210
  • THESE COUNTRIES. -THEN, SKIP, YOU SAID, BUT THE JAPANESE
  • 00:14:02.220 --> 00:14:05.020
  • GOVERNMENT IS AWARE OF THIS GAMBLING RING THAT'S FUNDING
  • 00:14:05.030 --> 00:14:07.170
  • MILLIONS AND MAYBE BILLIONS OF DOLLARS AND THEY'RE LETTING IT
  • 00:14:07.180 --> 00:14:09.260
  • GO. -WELL, THEY WERE. AGAIN, THEY WERE TRYING TO MAKE SURE
  • 00:14:09.270 --> 00:14:12.070
  • THAT THEY STAYED ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE NORTH KOREANS. BUT
  • 00:14:12.080 --> 00:14:14.220
  • I'D LIKE TO GO BACK TO THIS IRANIAN CONNECTION AGAIN.
  • 00:14:14.230 --> 00:14:17.140
  • REMEMBER MANY OF THE MISSILES THAT THE IRANIANS ARE FIRING AND
  • 00:14:17.150 --> 00:14:20.060
  • TESTING, WE CAN SEE THAT THEY ARE VIRTUAL CLONES OF NORTH
  • 00:14:20.070 --> 00:14:25.210
  • KOREAN DEVELOPED MISSILES. SO I THINK THAT'S THEIR, THE NORTH
  • 00:14:25.220 --> 00:14:29.020
  • KOREANS ARE GETTING OIL, WHICH THEY NEED, -YEP. -FROM THE
  • 00:14:29.030 --> 00:14:31.200
  • IRANIANS, IN TURN FOR TRANSFERRING MILITARY
  • 00:14:31.210 --> 00:14:34.020
  • TECHNOLOGY, WHICH SEEMS TO BE THE ONLY THING THAT THE NORTH
  • 00:14:34.030 --> 00:14:36.210
  • KOREANS CAN DO WELL. -WE'VE GOT A LOT MORE TO DISCUSS ON THIS
  • 00:14:36.220 --> 00:14:39.180
  • WHOLE SITUATION WITH NORTH KOREA. STAY TUNED. MORE ANALYSIS
  • 00:14:39.190 --> 00:14:42.170
  • AHEAD.
  • 00:14:42.180 --> 00:14:44.050
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:14:44.060 --> 00:14:49.140
  • JAY SEKULOW: WE'RE TALKING
  • 00:14:49.150 --> 00:14:50.120
  • ABOUT THE SITUATION WITH NORTH KOREA-THE
  • 00:14:50.130 --> 00:14:51.160
  • RUSSIA & CHINA STATEMENT YESTERDAY OFFERING TO MEDIATE
  • 00:14:51.170 --> 00:14:54.290
  • AND SUGGEST THAT NORTH KOREA COULD STOP NUCLEAR RESEARCH IN
  • 00:14:55.000 --> 00:14:57.090
  • EXCHANGE FOR U.S. TO STOP CONDUCTING DEFENSIVE DRILLS WITH
  • 00:14:57.100 --> 00:15:00.260
  • SOUTH KOREA AND JAPAN. SKIP, YOUR REACTION TO THAT STATEMENT
  • 00:15:00.270 --> 00:15:04.090
  • COMING FROM RUSSIA AND THE CHINESE? SKIP ASH: I THINK
  • 00:15:04.100 --> 00:15:06.190
  • THAT'S RIDICULOUS BECAUSE NOTHING IS GOING TO STOP THE
  • 00:15:06.200 --> 00:15:09.090
  • NORTH KOREANS FROM DOING WHAT THEY WANT. THEY'LL DO IT IN
  • 00:15:09.100 --> 00:15:11.150
  • SECRET. THEY DON'T MIND LYING TO THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY.
  • 00:15:11.160 --> 00:15:14.040
  • THEY'VE ALREADY MADE ALL THESE AGREEMENTS NOT TO DO WHAT
  • 00:15:14.050 --> 00:15:16.050
  • THEY'RE DOING. SO IT DOESN'T MATTER. AND WE SHOULD NOT TRUST
  • 00:15:16.060 --> 00:15:19.010
  • THE WORD OF THE NORTH KOREANS OR THE CHINESE AND RUSSIANS. WES
  • 00:15:19.020 --> 00:15:23.090
  • SMITH: AND NOT ONLY THAT, JAY, JAPAN AND SOUTH KOREA, FOR
  • 00:15:23.100 --> 00:15:26.120
  • DECADES, THEY DEPEND ON THE U.S. TO DEFEND THEM. AND THOSE DRILLS
  • 00:15:26.130 --> 00:15:31.040
  • AND EXERCISES THAT WE DO ARE DEFENSIVE EXERCISES. IF WE WERE
  • 00:15:31.050 --> 00:15:35.170
  • TO AGREE TO THIS CHINA-RUSSIA SUGGESTION AND QUIT DOING THOSE
  • 00:15:35.180 --> 00:15:39.040
  • IN EXCHANGE FOR PROMISES THAT NORTH KOREA WILL BREAK
  • 00:15:39.050 --> 00:15:42.220
  • IMMEDIATELY, IT WOULD TOTALLY CHANGE THE BALANCE OF POWER IN
  • 00:15:42.230 --> 00:15:45.230
  • THE PACIFIC REALM. AND JAPAN AND SOUTH KOREA WOULD FEEL ABANDONED
  • 00:15:45.240 --> 00:15:50.150
  • BY US. -YEAH. -WE ARE THEIR PROTECTION. -SO I WANT TO ASK,
  • 00:15:50.160 --> 00:15:53.140
  • WE'VE GOT A LOT OF CALLS AND WE'RE GOING TO GET TO THOSE IN A
  • 00:15:53.150 --> 00:15:55.250
  • MOMENT, THE POLITICAL CONSEQUENCES, AND LOGAN, LET'S
  • 00:15:55.260 --> 00:15:58.180
  • ALSO GET SOME COMMENTS COMING ON FACEBOOK AND PERISCOPE, BUT
  • 00:15:58.190 --> 00:16:01.050
  • WE'LL TAKE SOME CALLS AS WELL. GO AHEAD. JORDAN SEKULOW: I
  • 00:16:01.060 --> 00:16:03.200
  • WOULD SAY AN ACTION WITH NORTH KOREA WOULD BE MORE SERIOUS THAN
  • 00:16:03.210 --> 00:16:08.190
  • SENDING 50.000 TROOPS TO FIGHT ISIS, SERIOUSLY, THE
  • 00:16:08.200 --> 00:16:12.290
  • RAMIFICATIONS. YOU COULD DO THAT, OUR TROOPS WOULD BE IN
  • 00:16:13.000 --> 00:16:15.080
  • HARM'S WAY, THERE WOULD BE CASUALTIES, BUT THE
  • 00:16:15.090 --> 00:16:18.100
  • INTERNATIONAL RESPONSE, YOU KNOW, ISIS DOESN'T HAVE THE
  • 00:16:18.110 --> 00:16:22.070
  • CAPABILITIES TO FIRE UPON. YOU TAKE THE ASSAD REGIME OUT IN 2
  • 00:16:22.080 --> 00:16:25.110
  • MINUTES IF YOU WANTED TO. -RIGHT. -THIS IS NOT LIKE
  • 00:16:25.120 --> 00:16:28.110
  • THAT. THIS IS, YOU'VE GOT MILLIONS OF PEOPLE WITHIN SMALL
  • 00:16:28.120 --> 00:16:32.140
  • ARMS RANGE, ARTILLERY. SO CIVILIANS, PLUS OUR TROOPS, PLUS
  • 00:16:32.150 --> 00:16:36.290
  • 2 OTHER MAJOR WORLD POWERS WHO ARE NOT NECESSARILY ON BOARD
  • 00:16:37.000 --> 00:16:39.230
  • WITH ALL OF OUR DECISIONS USUALLY, RUSSIA AND CHINA, SO
  • 00:16:39.240 --> 00:16:43.030
  • YOU'D HAVE TO HAVE A LOT OF BY-IN FROM THE SOUTH KOREANS.
  • 00:16:43.040 --> 00:16:48.030
  • THE SOUTH KOREAN PEOPLE WOULD, BASICALLY, HAVE TO BE WILLING TO
  • 00:16:48.040 --> 00:16:50.220
  • LIVE IN, LIKE, KIND OF LIKE THE U.K. UNDER THE BLITZKRIEG FOR A
  • 00:16:50.230 --> 00:16:56.140
  • PERIOD OF TIME TO TAKE THIS REGIME OUT. AND YOU KNOW, SO
  • 00:16:56.150 --> 00:16:58.280
  • YOU'D HAVE TO, YOU CAN'T REALLY TAKE THAT ACTION UNTIL YOU'VE
  • 00:16:58.290 --> 00:17:02.220
  • GOT THE BUY-IN FROM THE PEOPLE OF SOUTH KOREA. -ALRIGHT, WE'LL
  • 00:17:02.230 --> 00:17:05.030
  • TAKE A CALL IN A MOMENT, BUT LET ME GO RIGHT BACK TO SKIP ASH.
  • 00:17:05.040 --> 00:17:06.230
  • SKIP, YOU SERVED THERE. SO TELL ME WHAT YOU, WHERE DO YOU SEE IT
  • 00:17:06.240 --> 00:17:11.260
  • FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF THE SOUTH KOREANS? WHAT DO THEY WANT
  • 00:17:11.270 --> 00:17:14.090
  • TO SEE HAPPEN? WHAT'S IN THEIR BEST INTEREST? HOW DOES THAT
  • 00:17:14.100 --> 00:17:16.170
  • WORK? -I THINK THEY WANT TO AVOID WAR AT ALL COSTS. BUT I
  • 00:17:16.180 --> 00:17:20.160
  • WOULD SAY THIS, REMEMBER, THEY HAVE A NEW PRESIDENT AND THE NEW
  • 00:17:20.170 --> 00:17:23.100
  • PRESIDENT IMMEDIATELY STOPPED THE UNITED STATES FROM BEING
  • 00:17:23.110 --> 00:17:28.120
  • ABLE TO BRING IN THE THEATRE HIGH ALTITUDE AIR DEFENSE SYSTEM
  • 00:17:28.130 --> 00:17:31.240
  • FOR SOME REASON. AND WE WERE ALREADY PUTTING THAT IN THERE.
  • 00:17:31.250 --> 00:17:35.070
  • SO WE HAVE SOME DISAGREEMENTS EVEN WITH OUR ALLIES IN SOUTH
  • 00:17:35.080 --> 00:17:38.290
  • KOREA. SO AND THAT'S A DEMOCRATIC SYSTEM SO THEY HAVE
  • 00:17:39.000 --> 00:17:42.080
  • TO GO THROUGH THE MACHINATIONS THAT WE DO WHEREAS THE NORTH
  • 00:17:42.090 --> 00:17:45.010
  • KOREANS DON'T. -THE DIFFERENCE, THOUGH, AND I THINK WHAT HAS TO
  • 00:17:45.020 --> 00:17:49.100
  • BE POINTED OUT, IS THAT AS A COUNTRY, ONCE THEY HAVE THIS
  • 00:17:49.110 --> 00:17:52.250
  • CAPABILITY TO FIRE UPON US, SOUTH KOREA DEPENDS COMPLETELY
  • 00:17:52.260 --> 00:17:57.200
  • ON US FOR THEIR DEFENSE. WE GET TO MAKE THE CALL AT THE END OF
  • 00:17:57.210 --> 00:18:00.100
  • THE DAY. -RIGHT. -THEY MAY NOT LIKE IT, AND AS SKIP SAID, THEY
  • 00:18:00.110 --> 00:18:02.250
  • MAY NOT LET US PUT IN SOME OF THE DEFENSE SYSTEMS, BUT WE
  • 00:18:02.260 --> 00:18:05.030
  • COULD TAKE OUT THIS REGIME AT A MOMENT'S NOTICE ONCE THEY ARE A
  • 00:18:05.040 --> 00:18:09.090
  • THREAT TO US DIRECTLY. NOT JUST TO OUR TROOPS WHO ARE IN SOUTH
  • 00:18:09.100 --> 00:18:12.130
  • KOREA, NOT JUST TO SOUTH KOREANS, BUT TO US, DIRECTLY.
  • 00:18:12.140 --> 00:18:16.010
  • AND IF THEY HAVE THE ABILITY TO FIRE AN ICBM INTO THE UNITED
  • 00:18:16.020 --> 00:18:20.150
  • STATES, WHETHER THAT'S HAWAII, WHETHER THAT'S ALASKA, WHETHER
  • 00:18:20.160 --> 00:18:23.110
  • THAT'S CALIFORNIA, THEN IT DOESN'T, IF YOU ARE, REMEMBER,
  • 00:18:23.120 --> 00:18:27.050
  • THE PRESIDENT'S FIRST JOB IS NOT TO PROTECT SOUTH KOREA. THE
  • 00:18:27.060 --> 00:18:30.000
  • PRESIDENT'S FIRST JOB AS COMMANDER IN CHIEF IS TO PROTECT
  • 00:18:30.010 --> 00:18:31.270
  • US. -AND THAT WAS A MISSILE, YOU SERVED IN SOUTH KOREA AS
  • 00:18:31.280 --> 00:18:35.190
  • WELL. -ABSOLUTELY, YES. AS A MATTER OF FACT, I WAS ACTUALLY
  • 00:18:35.200 --> 00:18:37.100
  • STATIONED AT THE PLACE WHERE YESTERDAY THE UNITED STATES DID
  • 00:18:37.110 --> 00:18:39.270
  • THEIR SHOW OF FORCE WITH THE ANTI-MISSILE MISSILES. YEAH, AND
  • 00:18:39.280 --> 00:18:42.200
  • WHEN I WAS LEAVING THERE, THERE WAS A LOT OF ANIMOSITY STILL
  • 00:18:42.210 --> 00:18:45.130
  • BETWEEN JAPAN AND SOUTH KOREA BECAUSE OF ALL THE ATROCITIES
  • 00:18:45.140 --> 00:18:50.000
  • AND WHAT HAVE YOU, BUT AT THE SAME TIME, WHAT I DISCOVERED
  • 00:18:50.010 --> 00:18:52.280
  • WHEN I LIVED THERE IS THAT THE SOUTH KOREANS AND THE JAPANESE
  • 00:18:52.290 --> 00:18:55.220
  • ARE UNITED IN 2 AREAS: THEIR COMPLETE ALLEGIANCE AND
  • 00:18:55.230 --> 00:19:01.030
  • DEPENDENCY UPON THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, AND THEIR
  • 00:19:01.040 --> 00:19:04.070
  • FEAR OF NORTH KOREA. THEY REALIZE THAT THERE IS A THREAT
  • 00:19:04.080 --> 00:19:07.180
  • NORTH OF THE DMZ AND THEY LIVE WITH THAT THREAT EVERY DAY.
  • 00:19:07.190 --> 00:19:11.120
  • -SO, SKIP, HOW, YOU WERE THERE AS WELL, DO YOU THINK THAT'S, DO
  • 00:19:11.130 --> 00:19:14.190
  • THE SOUTH KOREANS UNDERSTAND THE NATURE OF, I'M SURE THE
  • 00:19:14.200 --> 00:19:17.030
  • GOVERNMENT DOES, OF WHAT'S GOING ON RIGHT NOW? -I THINK THEY DO,
  • 00:19:17.040 --> 00:19:20.290
  • BUT THEY'RE LOOKING FOR A WAY OUT THAT WILL PRECLUDE ANY TYPE
  • 00:19:21.000 --> 00:19:23.270
  • OF BELLIGERENCY, AND I DON'T DISAGREE WITH THAT, BUT THE
  • 00:19:23.280 --> 00:19:27.120
  • OPTIONS ARE GETTING FEWER AND FEWER AS NORTH KOREA GETS
  • 00:19:27.130 --> 00:19:31.140
  • STRONGER. -LET'S TAKE SOME CALLS, WE'VE GOT A LOT OF CALLS
  • 00:19:31.150 --> 00:19:34.030
  • COMING IN. LOGAN SEKULOW: YEAH, A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE BEEN
  • 00:19:34.040 --> 00:19:35.290
  • HOLDING FOR A WHILE. LET'S TAKE SOME OF THOSE. DAVE IS CALLING
  • 00:19:36.000 --> 00:19:38.030
  • IN CALIFORNIA ON LINE FIVE. -HI, DAVE. YOU'RE ON THE AIR.
  • 00:19:38.040 --> 00:19:40.010
  • -HELLO! -HI, DAVE. -HOW'RE YOU DOING? I JUST HAVE A
  • 00:19:40.020 --> 00:19:45.140
  • COMMENT. I AGREE WITH YOUR GUESTS AND ALL THAT ABOUT, YOU
  • 00:19:45.150 --> 00:19:47.190
  • KNOW, NORTH KOREA, I THINK THEY'RE KIND OF A, I DON'T KNOW
  • 00:19:47.200 --> 00:19:54.040
  • HOW TO SAY IT, FOR LACK OF BETTER WORDS, WORKING FOR CHINA.
  • 00:19:54.050 --> 00:19:56.230
  • I THINK CHINA'S JUST LETTING THEM DO WHAT THEY WANT TO DO.
  • 00:19:56.240 --> 00:19:58.190
  • AND ALL THIS TESTING IS TO BENEFIT THEM BECAUSE THEY WOULD
  • 00:19:58.200 --> 00:20:02.120
  • HAVE ALREADY CUT THEM OFF ON EVERYTHING ALREADY. -LOOK, I
  • 00:20:02.130 --> 00:20:05.160
  • THINK WHAT THE PRESIDENT SAID IN HIS LATEST STATEMENT IS THAT THE
  • 00:20:05.170 --> 00:20:09.060
  • TRADE BETWEEN CHINA AND NORTH KOREA GREW ALMOST 40% IN THE
  • 00:20:09.070 --> 00:20:11.220
  • FIRST QUARTER. SO MUCH FOR CHINA WORKING WITH US. BUT WE HAD TO
  • 00:20:11.230 --> 00:20:15.020
  • GIVE IT A TRY. THERE YOU GO. I MEAN, I THINK THAT KIND OF,
  • 00:20:15.030 --> 00:20:18.130
  • JORDAN, SUMS IT ALL UP. I THINK THAT, NOW, THAT DOES NOT MEAN
  • 00:20:18.140 --> 00:20:21.240
  • THE CHINESE CANNOT BE PRESSURED AGAIN. AND BELIEVE ME, THE
  • 00:20:21.250 --> 00:20:23.270
  • THREATS THAT THEY HAVE WILL BE SIGNIFICANT IN THAT REGARD.
  • 00:20:23.280 --> 00:20:26.270
  • -YES, I MEAN, THE CHINESE RELY A LOT ON US. WE ALLOW THEM TO
  • 00:20:26.280 --> 00:20:30.120
  • GET AWAY WITH THIS CURRENCY -MANIPULATION. -MANIPULATION.
  • 00:20:30.130 --> 00:20:34.140
  • AND THEY, AGAIN, ANOTHER REGIME, WHICH IS KIND OF LIKE IN THE
  • 00:20:34.150 --> 00:20:38.060
  • MIDDLE BETWEEN CAPITALISTS AND HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSERS. SO NOT AS
  • 00:20:38.070 --> 00:20:43.160
  • BAD AS THE NORTH KOREANS BUT CERTAINLY THEY ALSO HAVE A
  • 00:20:43.170 --> 00:20:45.260
  • MOSTLY, WHAT THEY CALL, PHEASANT POPULATION, WHICH IS STARVING.
  • 00:20:45.270 --> 00:20:50.200
  • -THAT'S THEIR WORDS. -YEAH. -I MEAN, SO THEY HAVE THAT SAME
  • 00:20:50.210 --> 00:20:55.200
  • KIND OF ISSUE THERE WHERE IF YOU ACTUALLY GET OUTSIDE THE MAJOR
  • 00:20:55.210 --> 00:20:58.130
  • CITIES, THE BEJINGS, THE SHANGHAI, YOU STILL HAVE HARD
  • 00:20:58.140 --> 00:21:01.270
  • CORE COMMUNITIST FARMERS, BASICALLY, IN THESE COMMUNITIES
  • 00:21:01.280 --> 00:21:05.290
  • IN RURAL AREAS, SO THEY, AGAIN, THEY'RE NOT GOING TO DO ANYTHING
  • 00:21:06.000 --> 00:21:10.000
  • OUT OF GOODWILL. IT'S ONLY GOING TO COME FROM PRESSURE FROM THE
  • 00:21:10.010 --> 00:21:15.130
  • UNITED STATES. BUT I GO BACK TO THIS, AT THE END OF THE DAY, IF
  • 00:21:15.140 --> 00:21:20.060
  • THEY REALLY DO HAVE THE CAPABILITY TO HIT US WITH AN
  • 00:21:20.070 --> 00:21:23.050
  • ICBM, TO HIT US WITH AN ICBM, THEN OUR JOB, THE JOB OF THE
  • 00:21:23.060 --> 00:21:28.220
  • COMMANDER IN CHIEF, YES YOU HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT SOUTH KOREA, YOU
  • 00:21:28.230 --> 00:21:31.150
  • HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT OUR TROOPS THERE, BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO
  • 00:21:31.160 --> 00:21:33.230
  • WORRY ABOUT THE RUSSIAN BORDER, THE CHINESE BORDER, BECAUSE NOW
  • 00:21:33.240 --> 00:21:36.030
  • THEY'RE A THREAT TO US AND HIS JOB IS TO PROTECT AMERICANS, NOT
  • 00:21:36.040 --> 00:21:39.010
  • THE RUSSIANS, OR THE CHINESE, OR THE SOUTH KOREANS. -YEP. -THIS
  • 00:21:39.020 --> 00:21:41.240
  • IS A DIRE SITUATION TOO, VERY DIRE. AND ULTIMATELY, UNLESS THE
  • 00:21:41.250 --> 00:21:46.220
  • INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY CAN REALLY COME TOGETHER AND ISOLATE
  • 00:21:46.230 --> 00:21:49.150
  • NORTH KOREA, WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN, JAY, IS WE WILL BE FACED
  • 00:21:49.160 --> 00:21:52.040
  • WITH A BINARY CHOICE, EITHER ULTIMATELY MILITARY ACTION, OR
  • 00:21:52.050 --> 00:21:55.230
  • ALLOWING NORTH KOREA TO HAVE NUCLEAR WEAPONS. -WELL, THAT'S
  • 00:21:55.240 --> 00:21:59.120
  • GOING TO DO IT FOR THE BROADCAST TODAY. A LOT OF ISSUES AT STAKE,
  • 00:21:59.130 --> 00:22:01.290
  • PRAY FOR THE PRESIDENT. PRAY FOR THOSE IN AUTHORITY. PRAY FOR OUR
  • 00:22:02.000 --> 00:22:04.270
  • LEADERS, OUR MILITARY MEN AND WOMEN IN HARM'S WAY. THIS IS,
  • 00:22:04.280 --> 00:22:08.080
  • LOOK, THIS IS A SERIOUS SITUATION WITH NORTH KOREA.
  • 00:22:08.090 --> 00:22:10.180
  • WE'VE LAID THAT OUT FOR YOU TODAY. WE'LL KEEP YOU POSTED ON
  • 00:22:10.190 --> 00:22:12.280
  • THIS. BUT AGAIN, A MAJOR SITUATION DEVELOPING FOR THE
  • 00:22:12.290 --> 00:22:16.030
  • UNITED STATES, AND OF COURSE, THE PEOPLE IN THE REGION,
  • 00:22:16.040 --> 00:22:18.020
  • ESPECIALLY SOUTH KOREA. BUT LOOK, AN ICBM COULD REACH THE
  • 00:22:18.030 --> 00:22:21.280
  • UNITED STATES. VERY, VERY SERIOUS. WE'LL HAVE MORE ON THIS
