Crosstalk: November 8, 2018
Mat Staver, the founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, joined Jim for this followup on the midterm elections. Jim and Mat looked at the following:
--In breaking news, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has resigned.
--In the Senate, Republicans are the majority party and those numbers were strengthened.
--The Democrats took control of the House of Representatives.
--Florida rejected a socialist governor.
--Why Mat hopes Nancy Pelosi becomes Speaker of the House.
--A record breaking number of women won seats in Congress, including the first 2 Muslim women.
--The Human Rights Campaign said they made a 26 million dollar investment in the largest grassroots expansion in its 38 year history. Mat believes the gains made by LGBT candidates came about not because these individuals were qualified, but because of identity politics.
--With the Democrats now holding sway in the House, is the Equality Act about to be rolled out?
--Kim Davis lost her bid for re-election.
--Michigan said 'yes' to legalizing the recreational use of marijuana. The Michigan State Medical Society issued a press release warning about the abuse and addiction concerns and the harm that can take place to communities, families and youth.
--Alabama approved an amendment saying unborn babies have a right to life. West Virginia approved a pro-life amendment saying there's no right to abortion. Mat believes decisions like these will ultimately provide direct challenges to Roe v. Wade.
--Texas allegedly allowed illegal aliens to vote.
