tv The Ingraham Angle FOX News April 25, 2018 11:00pm-12:00am PDT
ball field and steve scalise they had 55os. we will be fair and balanced. let not your heart be troubled she's got a full hour up next. hi. >> >> laura: hi, hannity. you had a good show tonight. i watched some of it. you are really, really good. >> sean: were you drinking? you have never given me a compliment before. >> laura: do three gin and tonics count? or is that a food group? just kidding. thanks, sean. good evening from washington. i am laura ingraham. this is "the ingraham angle". we have a big show. we are going to reveal powerful forces in america that is keeping the illegal immigrant caravan at our border from falling apart. it's being disbanded. what happened? why do we allow individual lower court judges to upend our border security, our sovereignty, and the president's constitutional authority? i will offer my solution in tonight's angle. plus the high cost of socialized medicine. little alfie evans' parents have
been trying to liberate the 2-year-old from a u.k. hospital. why won't they let him go? kanye west blows up the internet supporting trump while the left goes into a volcanic meltdown. we will get it all in our "seen and unseen" segment with raymond arroyo. the media trying to spin a g.o.p. congressional victory in an off-year special election as a loss for trump. we will expose the real agenda. and another untested social experiment is underway, as girls begin joining the boy scouts. but at what cost? an eagle scout response. but first, the tyranny of the judiciary. that's the focus of tonight's angle. yesterday a federal district court judge in d.c., john d. bates, overturned president trump's decision to end the daca program. the judge was appointed by
george w. bush. ruled that trump's action was arbitrary because the department of homeland security failed adequately to explain its conclusion that the program was unlawful. well, this judge ordered the administration to continue to accept new daca applicants. delaying the implementation for 90 days for the trump folks can rewrite their basis for ending daca. if this ruling stands, it could actually mean that tripling of the number of illegals ultimately protected by this obama era program. daca would then be open to an additional 1.2 million more people, according to an analysis by the migration policy institute. that is on top of the nearly 700,000 already protected by the program. the very idea that one unelected district court judge could have
this type of power should outrage every american. i don't think any serious legal scholar really thinks that president obama had the constitutional authority to waive his noble hand and grant 700,000 young people de facto citizenship. remember, he gave them the right to work here without fear of any deportation, all by this executive action. remember, when the democrats have a majority in congress, they failed to pass broad-based amnesty. so obama, through his homeland security secretary janet napolitano, decided he will do it on his own. this was done despite the misgivings of his own justice department. but nevertheless, obama pushed it as far as he could. >> the bill hasn't really changed. the need hasn't changed. it is still the right thing to do. the only thing that's changed apparently was the politics.
it makes no sense to expel talented young people who, for all intents and purposes, are americans. >> laura: the whole citizenship thing, millions who came here illegally to get citizenship, that's all a formality, mr. president. what president trump and his admin's ration did by rescinding daca was to actually restore the rule of law and return immigration decisions and the fate of those daca kids to the constitutionally appropriate branch of government, congress. yet district court judges from san francisco to brooklyn and now here in washington, d.c., have stymied this president at every turn. this is totally absurd and an abuse of power. now, you might be asking yourself how we got here. and how did we get to a point where people from foreign countries believe they can crash our borders, game our immigration system, and ultimately just wander freely in our country? well, the answer, one
out-of-control judge in california have a lot to do with it. her name is judge dolly gee. in 2014, we saw of the mass influx of illegals crossing our southwest border. remember the obama department of homeland security placed a lot of those illegal immigrant family units in detention facilities. well, in 2015, judge gee ruled that the government could not detain the children in center set up. although centers in texas because the judge ruled they were not safe and sanitary enough. she based that decision on this 1997 settlement agreement that was called the flores case, that required that unaccompanied alien minors be released into the country without delay. this judge gee went further, ruling that not only should the minors be released into the united states once apprehended
but their parents should be allowed to go free as well. so again, that one district judge in california is responsible for the release of an estimated 107,000 unaccompanied minors into the interior of this country since the year 2016. and then also most of the 167,000 apprehended family units released as well. again, think this through. one district court judge has forever changed our cultural, demographic, and economic, perhaps national security landscape. one judge. that is not what our founders intended. now let's face it. the runaway judiciary has become, in effect, a new flank of the resistance. they are taking away your power. and it's time for congress to circumscribe the authority and the reach of these district
court judges. think about national health care policy, immigration policy, national security. these matters are all beyond the scope and understanding frankly of a district court judge. it's like giving a local mayor control over u.s. foreign policy. it's ridiculous. remember, the constitution article iii section 1 states the following. "the judicial power of the united states shall be vested in one supreme court and in such inferior courts as the congress may from time to time ordain and establish." it continues. what does that mean? it means congress can regulate the lower court jurisdiction. it's time they do. in fact, they have done so in the past. congress should immediately pass legislation that establishes any cases touching on important national security or national economic concerns should be referred to the appeals court or the supreme court directly without delay or at the very least, constitutional determinations of the type we are seeing in this
daca case. they should be referred to the appellate judges, three-judge panel or maybe an en banc panel of the whole court. they are far more knowledgeable on constitutional and more knowledgeable and all these matters. the tyranny especially of the district court bench has to end. the people's will should no longer be held hostage to the capricious whims of one ill-equipped disgruntled life tenured jurist. that's the angle. joining me now for reaction are three esteemed attorneys. harmeet dhillon rnc national committee woman. scott bolden. with me in washington, sol wisenberg. cute and cuddly as always. deputy independent counsel. scott. i am teasing. good to see all of you.
let's start with you. when we see an entire federal program either struck down or in this case a decision invalidated in 90 days if the judge isn't satisfied, it will be invalidated. that's a lot of power for one unelected district court judge residing in washington, d.c. >> that's right. he isn't the first one. he's the third in the country, as you mentioned, in your opening. judge alsup in san francisco and a judge in brooklyn. what's interesting to note for your viewers is that there was a federal judge in maryland who ruled the opposite way. what's wrong with the whole scheme is that one district judge is now overruling basically another district judge. this nationwide junctions inviting litigants. they are running to the most liberal jurisdictions in america. northern district of california, eastern district of new york, and district of columbia.
that's not how our courts were meant to be. our courts were meant to have a hierarchy, as you mentioned. and only a superior court, not an equivalent court, should be allowed to do this. president trump has been subject to 22 nationwide injunctions. that's more than any other president in history. >> laura: district court judge, right? district court judge. an injunction that affects the whole country. that's wild. >> it didn't used to be a thing. 175 years of our country's history, there were no nationwide injunctions. it's recent and out-of-control. >> laura: scott, robert bork talked about the political seduction of the law. he had given lots of speeches over the years about, and he disagreed with justice scalia on this about limiting the federal courts jurisdiction because of the allure, the political allure
that all of the charges and of you can't trust them to apply the law they legislate from bench. >> my take is i don't know what you are talking about. well are three brans of gentleman no federal district judge that overrules another. checks and balances of the constitution laura you want to change you disagree. i want to restore. >>you want to change it. here is the checks and balances d. o. j. and everyone who loses at the federal district court level they go to the court of appeals or the supreme court you don't have to stay at the federal court level and issues of national importance or import have to go to qualified judges. >> you know the federal district. scott. you know a district court judge spends most of his time figuring
out sentencing guide leans and how they apply >> that is not true. these are sentencing guideline cases. i want to go to you. i know you like. major of the court of the cases come from the district court. we get that in the constitution the congress could do away with all the courts you like baits he worked for ken store he goes understood the brooklyn judge in california saying not only you restore the concern daca but take new applications? >> it is a very narrow opinion what judge baits did he is not your regular district court he is rapid throughout the judiciary does not mean his opinion is correct he is not like al sup. and what we said was very narrow
he said this under the administrative procedure's act the government did not adequately explain why they think that obama lacked. >> here is the explanation. obama was acting as a legislator. >> that is what sessions said, obama was acting as a super legislator because his democrats could not do amnesty. obama decided i will do this and created de facto amnesty. >> all judge baits said was you got 90 days to come up with a better reason >> judge baits austalked about people reloyaling on daca and the >> that's part of the law. you can't -- it is made up. >> no it isn't. >> made it up. >> the dc circuit law he has to follow the dc circuit. >> you think you saw you don't
think we have a problem with run away judges? >> absolutely i'm not staying i agree with the judge's decision it is a mainstream decision if he wants to be like a california judge he valided i vacate t. you were slope. you got 90 days. you need a better reason. >> all right. >> harmony does not have a problem with the permanent nationwide injunks injunction when it was a conservative judge in texas. >> democrats should be concerned the tables will be turnd and it is not the place of judges who are an equal branch no superior to issue injunctions the basis of two or three people in front of them it is not precedent in the our history.
judge went further, he issued a partial judgment here with no trial. >> partial. >> you know made up some of the rulings, make no sense and important point is that president obama himself in 2012 when he signed the daca ordered this is a temporary measure. a stopgap. to give hope to some people until congress acts now it is a permanent entitle am. >> i want to play this are scott you can react heed tonight on cnn. >> after i was fired i put together a legal team of three people one was bro professor dan richmond at columbia university after i asked him to give it to the media i gave my legal team four memos including one he was begin to give to the new york times. i see mou credible claim by any
serious person that violated the law. >> scott, no problem, a couple of the memos were confidential four were not. >> absolutely. because they were not confidential or seen as secret skrshg no problem. i guarantee you the trump administration if they thought he lobed secret documents or classified documents he would be prosecuted now. what is the delay. yelled and screamed about him leak whatting about the substance of the documents which is issue, why has he not been prosecuted if he had broken the law with the republican administration he is at war with now? >> why not. >> as a practical matter it does not matter he is judgment group in dc well is no dc injury that would convict jim comey they will not convict anybody who is an enemy of trump.
why regulation for d. o. j. says you can't traffic, trade gentleman permanent. >> it is gentleman permanent. he is government property. had no business. >> why was not hilary prosecuted. >> it is discretion. >> no business turning it over to his buddy. he has done a lot of things wrong that are not criminal. he acted shamefully gipping with what he did. >> today we had the travel ban argument. i will play a sound bite this is justice kennedy many think a swing vote with the travel ban oral argument. >> suppose you have a local mayor as a candidate he makes -- faithful at the same times electd and day two he takes act consistent with the hateful
statements. >> he played both sides in that question he indicated that he was siding with those who would strike down the travel ban. what is your take? >> i mean, laura they played both sides but the conservative judges were siding with the administration on this. i think this case is up in the air. i would be foolish to make a predictionism think they thought about it carefully. i think the trump administration should win this about there are pol teches and strategy feelings, there was rhetoric about flipping the tables and what if a candidate made remarks i know they are thinking that way if they lock at the law i hope it will be. >> or the constitution. >> scott upheld or struck down? >> i certainly hope tell be struck down. trump's problem in d. o. j.'s problem is they have broad authority but trump's own
statements political and outside of the courtroom is his worse witness. judges have to grapple with that. i don't think they can ignore his statements. >> they can. depending on what -- a practical matter. sure. >> all right. >> for once scott is halfway right. problem is not what he said before the election it is what president said and tweeted since the election he has to watch that. >> all right. fantastic segment. i feel leak i got extra. continuing willing emgz credit. i will reveal information tone how forces in america kept mexican authorities from fully disbanding that illegalim grant caravan. coming up. show me the billboard music awards.

>> i can reveal tonight some blockbuster new information about that car van of illegalim grants. a source close to mexican government after mexico disbanded the caravan and deported members the american media outlets cnn and ngo's in the united states whipped up to reconstitute the caravan and recruit new members and chugged to taiwana what happened a narrative was created that helped recruit new members and convince those to keep the party going they sold them as political refugees most seeks asylum on economic reasons. the top source said the caravan
was finished until they focused on the plight of women and children in the caravan. >> many of them come from honduras telling us they are fl fleeing vie 11s and poverty trying to make their way north. it does not matter what president trump says or if president trump ends the national guard to the u.s./mexico border they will find a way to get north >> women and children you see that shot they were almost all men just one woman. what else don't we know who is in the caravan. ms13 gang member tried to sneak in the country pretend to be an unacompanied minor. we exposed how manner attorneys may use our laxed asylum laws to force us to take in hundreds
illegalim grants. for reaction we are joined by steve king of iowa in congress. it is good to see thank you is disturbing this is wild what is happening. you have the lawyers and including a guy who is a lead lawyer in this effort. aleck a project coordinator for someone organizing the effort to help the caravans and the concern, congressman we have american lawyers and other nongovernmental organizations almost working hand and glove with media outlets to push mexican election coming up. put the political pressure on mexico and keep it all going. they make their way up to taiwana and then what? >> watching the caravan toward the united states and tijuana and seeing the way they are facilitating this with media and
t the immigration attorney which they have 15,000 member in the united states of that organization. there are federal statutes that prohibit and create a felony for contributing and aiding illegal immigration hay better have their laws right if they are helping facilitate an unarmed invasion in the united states. we are weak on our acycle up laws that was passed by a voice in the night after everybody left for the airport in christmas vacation a few years ago. i don't have the exact year. i read the text they were ready to gaff out everybody headed the airport this was back in the pelosi refera in the speaker and when harry reid. >> you claem asylum when you say you have a credible fear of persecution for reasons it is laxed. it is for race, religion. membership and a social group.
i don't know what that means and political opinion. overwhelmingly the immigration judges have granted asylum or allowed people to be released and they never come back for their hearing. >> train them what to say when they arrive. >> workshops with these migrants. gi office the cliff outside of roma, texas and watched them enflat the raft. bring a pregnant lady across up to the shore. helped her out. handed her bags and she stood and waited for border patrol to claim credible fear. >> why have not republicans in congress done anything to change that law. you have an an advocate, n
countries other than mexico. quality mallguatemala and salva and beyond if they show up at our border and show up -- they can get in asylum in the united states. easy or be released into the united states easily. we must have have a new law that says you can be immediately removed back toior country leak you are if you are a mech can. mexican don't have that 80 only other than mexicans have that ability to be released back to the united states that is nuts we talked about a judge in dc who is part of the judicial terranney now. >> changing the language for asylum the credible fear we did a tower of the border with sherman bob goodlap. went through the court system. that simple change is written in the davis oliver act a lot of enforce am provisions >> where is this act?
>> look figure are a way to come to the floor. >> paul ryan will not bring it. >> seemed the votes were short it is tied up in some of the republican insist of daca amnesty. >> back to amnesty you cannot do something that protects the american people that protects our sovereignty and boarders and health and national security. you can't do that for the american people without a give away to illegalim grants is that correct? people watching want to throw something. >> on top of this. i do and i'm hosting the show. >> president whom i support promed end daca. >> that drove me crazy. we shouldn't make a deal with the rule of law and amnesty. 13, 1186uam's. unacompanied minors under 17 have been released this year in
fiscal 2018. gi guarantee you they were driven to bussed to or flown to all 50 states. >> sponsors and may go to an address in las vegas, could be a kyle kill i donkyle i don'ty ho? >> i was in control when we had m circumstance 13 and busted him for a pick up load of marijuana. 240 pounds had a tattoo, 13. i saw it with my eye and unloaded that marijuana, 240 pounds it is stunning when you put your eyeos and walk in the warehouses and you go in jails 81% mail and some of those youth have gray in their beard, laura. >> i get it they might not be 17. >> we dgotta get something don. in seen and unseen the media focus on the first lady's hat.
immediate exposed kenye west strike making liberal heads spent after tweeting support for trump and joined by ray monmond media coverage on the first lady focused on her hat. >> her hat. >> stein colbert capture today in this clip. okay. today the two men addressed the crowd and well was an awkward moment. trump goes for the kiss and oh ! saved by the hat! that is more than a hat that is a defensive perimeter. their deal is either she gets to wear hat or trump has to wear a cone >> call that the cone of shaem on my dog. >> there was mainstream coverage of this. the narrative is the trumps are distant and loveless. here is the bottom line.
what do they want them to do make out. >> i guess. they are detrifling milania. this woman pulled off. michelle obama or laura bush they had teams of people hundreds organizing. >> professional party planners. upon dez ray rogers jude update state dinner. milania did this on her own asembled a team of 10 peopleful her staff. she went over the protocol. the history of state dinners and she chose the flowers and loyalties she should be begin credit not grabbing the hand. she did hold his hand. she did let him kiss her this narrative i'm tired of this. >> they cannot give her one moment. this is an elegant wonderful, beautiful presentation of america to france and with the french touch and new orleans
style. >> the flowers. >> you are waiving everybody off. >> i'm a waiver. >> don't wave me. i like double bok. you don't like me next to you. alfie events in britain preventing paraphernalias from giving medical assistance to their child. this is heart braking. >> boy came in december of 2016 with an infection. if you take the res pyrary out. they will not breathe it has been out since monday they fought to keep. >> they don't want to spend the money the national healing service in britain look at a taxicab and say, not a human life does the cost exceed the quality of life in the case of this baby they say he should be cut off. nowhere car.

when is a win not a win? and the left got like the results. when the left doesn't like the results. then the spinning begins. republican debbie lesko won a special election for congress in arizona last night but we were told it's really bad news for the president. >> tremendous shift in a essentially republican land. when he put the numbers together, just not good for them. >> if that were translated across the country, the democrats would easily win the house. >> members of congress, there are a lot of canaries in this coal mine. >> serious consideration that they may lose the united states senate as well. >> not only is there a way but republicans are running for the hills at this point. >> laura: running for the hills? joined me now to analyze the analysts are former secret service agent dan bongino in florida.
and in new york, chris hahn, democratic former aide to senate minority leader chuck schumer. okay, chris, let's start with you. both sides do this at times. when obama wins big in a district and there's an election and the republican or the democrat only wins by 7. then republicans might say something, but this is kind of a weird deal. it's a special election. not our regularly scheduled election. it's always going to be fairly low voter turnout. i think the democrats were kind of hyping this little much. >> well, look, i think that the swing here were significant mostly because of the demographics of the district. let me explain. the average age of the voter there is 60 years old. and that is a voter that tends to be reliably republican. the fact that this race was as close as it was with those demographics is particularly troubling to republicans why been talking to all day. there were other races around
the country where there were swings last night, including new york where a democrat took an assembly seat that had been held by republicans for the last 40 years. took it by 18 points. so there is a mood among republicans that there might be some changes in the air, and they've got a lot of work to do. like one of the people quoted before said, you extrapolate that 15-point swing across the country and it's devastating. more importantly, if you look at the demographics here, mostly white, older. that's really bad especially given the fact that the candidate that the democrats put up there was pretty much a mainstream democrat, did not separate herself from washington democrats. there was nothing wrong with the republican candidate. she would not some crazy -- >> laura: okay, okay, okay we've got to go to dan. >> listen, i have no doubt, laura, that the democrats are probably going to pick up some seats in these midterms. what do you expect? that media has been on a 24-hour conspiracy news network tirade
on a fake russian collusion ferry trail against donald trump or they've been calling him anything that ends in a -ist or -phobe for the last year. yes there's probably going to be some good wins by the democrats for them, not for us. but if this turns out to be a blue puddle rather than a blue title wave they are in a lot of trouble. because they are solely invested in impeachment and they can't do it without taking the house. >> laura: another point i think we should think about is congress itself and republicans in congress have not done enough enough111 to enact the president's agenda. i think that's part of the dash of republicans are kind of dispirited, it's not because the economy. the economy is doing really well. they are dispirited because the republicans aren't getting it done. they did repeal obamacare. the wall is not being built. they spent a lot of money on
this omnibus. i mean, if you are a republican like this congress is lame. maybe debbie lesko is going to be better and hopefully she will be. we have to move on. we have another topic. >> i disagree. >> laura: quick, quick, quick. >> this election is going to be about trump and nobody else. period. >> laura: okay, gentlemen, stay right there. let's look at how the left and the media are portraying conservatives, republicans and the right. remember when then candidate obama made these famous remarks. >> cling to guns or religion nor antipathy towards people who aren't like them. >> laura: when hillary said this about trump voters. >> you could put half of trump supporters into what i call the basket of deplorables. right? >> laura: now cnn's jim acosta
is in trouble for saying this about trump supporters. >> people around the country don't know it's an act. they are not in on the act, they take what he says very seriously. they don't have all their faculties. in some cases, their elevator might not hit all floors. my concern is that a journalist is going to be hurt one of these days, somebody is going to get hurt. >> laura: after a backlash, acosta denied today he was referring to trump supporters and even mocking mental illness. what's really going on here? chris, let's get you on this. he really is echoing the refrain of the elites. they are dumb. they are troglodytes. they go around in ford f-150s. they have the gun rack on top. a book years ago called "power to the people," about how the elites looked down on the regular working class people in the country. that's how they lost the last election. that's how they lost in 2010. they made fun of the tea party.
they haven't learned anything. acosta is just a member of that crowd. doesn't surprise me at all. >> all i can say is wah. i don't know when cnn became a safe space for conservatives. i am sorry if their snowflake tendencies were disrupted by what he said but i am a liberal who goes on fox news. i've been called a lot worse than that. >> laura: that's why we love you. >> no sympathy for all of this. >> laura: i don't call all democrats mental or they don't have all -- that's a reporter, not a commentator. you are an analyst/commentator. he is supposed to be a reporter calling balls and strikes. at least that's what we are led to believe. dan, hold on, hold on. have to get dan on this. he's been a rapid anti-trump reporter for cnn which i think it's one of the reasons why cnn again, god bless them, have lost so many viewers over the years. there's no reporters. they are only opinion makers.
>> i have to say, laura, for as much as i like chris. this is how i know we are winning a little bit the culture war on the right. chris has co-opted one of our terms. snowflakes. this is how i know we are fighting back and winning. it really bothers chris. here's what chris knows that he's not telling you. i know this. chris knows his party has zero agenda. here is their agenda: give us your money. give us your health care. by the way, send your kids to bunch of crappy schools. they have no good schools. chris is married to identity politics, deplorable politics. look, the minority communities, muslim communities. females, we are going to save you from those rapacious republicans. they have nothing else. >> dan, dan, dan we are not married to any of that. we are not married to impeachment. doesn't even matter what the
democrats care about. this election is going to be about donald trump. >> laura: chris, you are making his point. hold on. hold on. chris. dan. chris is making your point. it's a most likely democrats have given up on offering solutions or ideas, proposals to raise the standard of living for the average american. all of you guys -- hold on. what i'm telling you, what i see, i've been around washington for far too long. there's a lot of -- you are a xenophobic, anti-immigrant, antiblack, anti-lgbt. anti, anti, anti, bob mueller, impeachment, racist. that's what it is. where are the proposals about raising standard of living for average americans? >> there are tons of those proposals. >> laura: you say they are running on trump. that's all they are running on. >> no, they are not. the people are voting on trump. i've been on campaigns my entire life and this guy has taken all
the oxygen out of the debate. it's all about him. it's not about the republican what they may or may not want to do. it's not about the democrat what they may or may not want to do. it's about donald trump and what he's doing. >> laura: growing the economy, good. >> the margin of victory is not going to be about him. >> chris is making our point. while the elitist democrat snobs, they knocked the deplorables for being the uneducated ignoramus class. chris is saying that his party stands for nothing. they're only running on one thing. we are not the guy the white house. we have nothing to offer you. we have no economic plan. >> laura: there is no obama in the wing. >> that's not what i said, dan. not what i said. it doesn't matter what any candidate on either side of the debate says during the election. >> laura: all trump all the time. i will take that. he is growing the economy. we might have a deal with north korea and we're getting back on the trade track. i love it. let's make that -- all right, guys.
a soft launch program after the organization revised its rules in october. this may make the virtue signalers feel good but at what cost? let's discuss it with charlie kirk, executive director of turning point usa, fabulous group. also an eagle scout. now i'm really impressed. i was impressed with turning point but now you're really cool. what is the problem with having girls in boy scouts other than it kind of messed up the description of the group name? >> i always said, laura, i said things are getting bad about what's next? are they going to let girls in the boy scouts? social psychologists will say in the development phase of young men in particular, there is quite and quite important of being around other young boys. as soon as you put a singular young lady in that environment, their behavioral pattern changes completely. they are trying to impress that young woman.
the way they act, the way they interact totally changes. look, the boy scouts of an unbelievably successful over the last 100 years of turning boys into men and creating some of america's greatest leaders. whether it be neil armstrong or u.s. presidents or u.s. senators, i'm trying understand what was the motive behind this and the conclusion i've come to his the political correct virtue signaling left, they like to destroy things that work. they want to destroy core cultural -- >> laura: attacks on masculinity. toxic masculinity now. if you bring girls in, it's less toxic. and what have you listened to a comment from a father about his daughter who wants to be an eagle scout. let's watch. >> to think that my daughter could be an eagle scout, i want that for my sons but yesterday i didn't know that my daughter could be an eagle scout. today she could if she wants to. and that makes me incredibly
proud. >> laura: so he said my daughter, it's fantastic. she gets to reach this pinnacle just like the boys. >> well, what do you say to the sons who want to join the girl scouts? is that okay now? why doesn't she just joined the girl scouts? by the way, there is a wonderful tradition that's been around just about as long as boy scouts and here's the real problem. this whole move by the boy scouts of america is going to destroy the girl scouts of america. there is an institution that's designed programmatically to try to have leadership development for young women. that's the real problem here. it's going to destroy this other organization just to try to increase membership for the boy scouts. >> laura: by the way, charlie. hold on, charlie. we have a statement. came out in october when this decision was first made before was implemented. this is patricia mellor, ceo of the girl scouts. vermont, new hampshire. "to me a daughter is not a matter of convenience. you've made the choice for your son based on what you thought was best for him and the duaghter should be getting a similar decision. we know facts prove that the
girl scout program is better, is a better program for girls and young women we serve." goes on and on about how they are not happy, obviously because they think it's going to destroy the girl scouts. >> and it will. the girl scouts have already trouble recruiting and trying to grow their membership and this is only going to obliterate that. the broader point is, and you see this happening throughout our country and this is an important cultural issue, and politics are always downstream from culture. the postmodernists want to redefine truth and they want to destroy things that work. the boy scouts of america for hundred years has been a core cultural institution that's turned boys into men. now we are severely jeopardizing that by inserting young ladies into the boy scouts. look, i can't understand why we can't just try to improve the girl scouts and we have to try to put them into the boy scouts. as an eagle scout, someone who was benefited from this program personally, i am so disappointed. unfortunately with the trend of the country, i am not surprised.
>> laura: let's take a look at a few interesting tweets that came my way about tonight's >> some interesting tweets. your angle hit the nail on the head with district judges controlling our lives. congress should get this under control, drain the swamp. from adam, raymond arroyo has interesting news stories each week. from lisa, a judge in california should not make decisions that impact me in connecticut, abuse of power in judge shopping, sick and tired of republicans doing nothing about illegal immigration. tweet me at ingram angle, see you tomorrow morning, that is all the time we have but you are lucky, very fortunate, we have
