'Breaking the News' Author Alex Marlow on Free Speech in Big Tech
"We were talking about the Second Amendment, the assault on it, the newsroom uvalde. We can segue very smoothly to the topic of your book breaking the news and the big issue of big tech. Because Elon Musk, the individual, you warned me about that we had so many high hopes of tweeted out, I think it was on Thursday morning or Wednesday night that, yeah, we have to do something about these AR-15s, maybe some special kind of registration or training. And I just tweeted out Elon, you were doing so well. Let's break down this story. The book is breaking the news. You've got to get it from our guest, Alex marlowe breaking the news exposing the establishment media's hidden deals and secret corruption. Where are you at in terms of Twitter, I don't know if you're on truth social, something's happened on true social, my account is now two, 3000 new followers every single day for the last weeks of something exponentials happening there. They're opening it up to Android as well. We had Devin Nunes on the show. We invited president Trump on the show as well. Are we starting to see some glimmers of hope? Or are you still concerned that this is the most powerful weapon on the left has to distort and steal elections? Yeah, it is one of the most powerful for sure. Noteworthy is maybe the most powerful of them all is Google, which president Trump was complaining that Google might be discriminating against true social. And that would be great because I spoke to Donald Trump personally a couple of years ago about the threat of big tech. And he was really obsessed with Twitter and I get why that was his most powerful tool, but for his supporters, the most powerful tools have been Google and Facebook by a mile, Google number one. And so if he's getting fired up about Google assuming he runs for president next time around, that could be a very good thing because he needs to crack the whip on Google who is manipulating elections in a major way, in my opinion. But what's happening is Musk is going to disappoint. If you're a mos super fan, if you think he's some sort of pure guy, he's going to disappoint you in different ways. He does a lot of things and says a lot of things that do make me indicate some of the red pilling is legitimate. I was kind of in the campus at most all performance art to advance his business businesses. I'm not there anymore. I now think he has internalized some of the values you and I have, doctor G, but he's going to keep making mistakes.
Breitbart's Alex Marlow on the Left Politicizing Every Moment
"We have an individual with us who if they gave out official employee identity cards, his would say employee number one of Breitbart News. He is the editor in chief of the most influential conservative news site on the planet. He's Alex Marlow. Welcome Alex to America first. Thank you, doctor G oids appreciate the kind intro. And I appreciate the opportunity to return the favor for you who always is on my show on Thursdays, which we love. Yeah, we talk national security. We talk domestic politics, manga, national security, every Thursday morning on your SiriusXM patriot news channel a show. Please check out the podcast. Alex is a very, very good social media platform. Just go to all the usual places and plug in at Alex Marlow and check out the podcast as well. So much to discuss, let's start we have to because of the left's reaction to it with the events of who valde the shooting, the horrific shooting in Texas. When somebody who is running for governor, stages a disruption of the first press conference from the sitting governor, the head of public safety, the superintendent of schools, lieutenant governor, and grandstands on the still warm bodies of those who are killed, shouldn't we draw some conclusions as to the depths of the depravity that the left are prepared to sink to Alex. Yeah, this was something that certainly would have seemed uncouth ten or 15 years ago. And now it's something that probably surprises no one who read the news on a regular basis. It used to be that there used to be some sort of a governor in the brain of people on the left. And to the much lesser degree, do they have this problem, where there's an urge to politicize every single moment. And there is a thought that perhaps there's some things that are more important than politics. And now everything is officially political. It's been game on. It really finally solidified when Donald Trump came down that escalator in 2015. I mean, that was it. That was the moment. When everyone just realized it's game on, however you politicize anyone that's how you
The 2nd Amendment Protects ALL Other Amendments
"All the other amendments. Now, if we are not clear about why that is the intent of the Second Amendment, then it becomes nothing more than just a self defense argument. And then they'll say, well, then why do you need an AR-15 just to protect yourself? Now, there is a good argument for that. If you know about the LA riots and the kind of legendary Korean storekeepers that went on their roof and protected themselves using AR-15s against the rioters, there is a good reason for self defense. But that's not the intent of it, and it will make us profoundly less free as a country. If we're not clear about why we have the Second Amendment. So right now, about 26 million people in Shanghai, China, are locked down. They can not leave their apartment buildings. What would Shanghai look like right now? If they had a Second Amendment in China, what would Hong Kong have looked like a couple years ago, when China just annexed Hong Kong, if every one of the Hong Kong freedom protesters had an AR-15, slung around their back. Now, this means they had to use it, but as soon as the people have weapons, it becomes a negotiation, and it no longer is a hostage situation. If you do not have a Second Amendment, the government can take you hostage at any time. If only one side has the guns, then one side gets the determine whether or not you are free. Now, if you
Why Did It Take the Police a Full Hour to Stop the Shooter in Uvalde?
"W and I both saw a short video of uvalde, the parents imploring these law enforcement officials like go in there. There's a massacre underway. We are the parents. We'll go in without guns. And the cops are basically like, you're not helping, step back, and obviously your heart goes with the parents. Yes. Yes. And they had apparently called for back up and back up arrived and as you made the point, the law enforcement officials on the scene were they didn't have tactical gear. Maybe they weren't equipped to be able to kind of go in. Well, and I also made the point that you were like, well, how is it that it takes so long to get these tactical people in there and et cetera, et cetera. This is oval is a very, very sleepy town in South Texas. A lot, a whole lot doesn't go happen every day around there. So people aren't just waiting around to go into a situation like this. Things like this don't happen in little sleepy towns like this, right? So unfortunately, you know, people leave their doors on locked, their cars unlocked. The school left the door unlocked. You know, that kind of thing happens. And so of course, parents were just mortified because number one, apparently this kid was making all kinds of ruckus. For a long period of time, before he even went in the school, apparently he was shooting at some funeral home, I don't know if you heard about this. No. But he was apparently shooting at some people in a funeral home. And then he wrecked his car in some ditch or something. Got out of it, starts shooting just randomly for 12 to 15 minutes before he even went in the school. So I think what the parents were upset about is that listen. This is one guy, one person doing this. Why couldn't you have stopped him before he even went into the school,

Former Congressman Devin Nunes Discusses the Latest Indictments
"Devon, there are some new indictments and they're fascinating, are they not? There are, and we might as well just come in hot here. I just hadn't heard a compilation of those interviews in a long time. It's just shocking. I think it should just shock the conscious of your listeners of everybody who's out there in America right now and around the globe. Just how far we've come from dirty tricks and 15 and 16. I think a lot of those cuts were from 17 and all this tell you, the Mueller, that whole Mueller investigation, I mean, it was set up completely by the dirty cops at DoJ and the FBI. And I hope I don't know if Durham will actually get to that. We can go through some of the indictments that have come here, but it's just incredible that here we are now so many years later and Durham is finally getting to the bottom of this and you just have to go and ask yourself the obvious question. How did Mueller spend $40 million? Leak like holy hell all over the place where all of these so called pundits and elected officials were out there saying all of this nonsense regurgitating all of this nonsense. And of course, as you know, it was our investigation that unraveled all of this that led to this, but we went through really dark times during that time. And I think it's only gotten gotten worse here and there's so much riding on John Durham in this investigation.
A Discussion on How to Prevent Mass Shootings in Schools
"Is in Virginia. Hi yoni. How are you doing, Hugh? Good. What is this, Israeli system that the guy called about it isn't just that there's lots of people with a lot of training people with a lot of weapons in Israel to shoot terrorists dead when they show up. Well, first of all, we got a lot of people with a lot of guns. But in addition to that, the last school shooting mass school shooting in Israel. Happened, may 15th, 1974, when you were trying to figure out who to take to the prom, okay? I mean, seriously, that's how long ago it was. It resulted in 31 dead Israelis, 70 wounded at a school. As a result of that shooting, a couple of things happened. Number one, we created what is today the national counter terror unit, your mom, part of the border police. And secondly, we put at every school armed personnel. All we have to do in America to end this. We don't need to violate people's constitutional rights by restricting magazine capacities or outlying guns. We need to put at every school, armed officers, armed with not just with handguns, but with AR-15s because allegedly this guy yesterday hasn't been confirmed yet, was engaged with law enforcement in a gunfight before he went into the school and he was wearing soft body armor.
The Media Is Preying on Our Short Attention Spans
"The American populace, attention span is dropped. This is scientifically being proven that scientific study out just the other day that said, based on the testing and others that the ten, I think it was ten 15 years ago, the average attention span of American was 12 seconds is now dropped to 8 seconds. I mean, again, how much can we pay attention to things? It's just being proven over and over. But the mainstream media praise on it. They don't want you to remember. They don't want you to think about it. They just want you to see the headlines and then react to it. And that's exactly

The Makings of a Conservative Majority With Newt Gingrich
"This. I think social media is also helping us a lot where a lot of black and Hispanic voters otherwise would have been just kind of listening to propaganda radio or television, but they're exposed to new and exciting voices like Candace Owens or Brandon Tatum, where they're getting the other side of the story for the first time, maybe 20 or 30 years ago. It wouldn't have been as possible. And also, unfortunately, the dominance of Democrats destroying these cities. It's now 50 years, 60 years. They've had their turn, and there is that kind of narrative that is seeping in, such as look at Detroit before and after Democrat rule. I mean, in certain, you've seen those pictures where almost Nagasaki has done better post atomic bomb than Detroit under Democrat rule. And then finally, and I love your thoughts on this. I think Republicans are doing better at candidate selection and asking for the vote. It's almost like there's this new sense of confidence thanks to president Trump where we're going to go and ask for the vote, such candidates like Herschel Walker and others. What are your thoughts on all that? Well, I think first of all, I think you're right on and I think you put your finger on a very fascinating part of this. Kevin McCarthy set out in 2020 to recruit candidates and people thought the House Republicans would lose 25 seats. They gained 15. That's a swing of 40 from what the experts thought would happen. Well, the 15 they gained every single one of them was either a woman or a minority and in some cases, as with two Korean American women in Southern California, a woman and a minority. And McCarthy talks constantly about base broadening and he talks about this opportunity to expand the brand, not just to focus in a narrow way on the old base. All of this was made possible by two things. One was Trump's effectiveness in communicating and in delivering the fact is you look at the price of gasoline two 35, I think, when Trump left office, you look at the price of gasoline now, you look at the price of food when Trump left office, you look at the price of food now. You look at the border getting controlled under Trump. You look at the chaos and the border now. You look at the crime rate under Trump. And Trump, I think, by now, would have very aggressively gone after these George Soros elected district attorneys who are refusing to prosecute
Texas School Shooter Kills 14 Children, 1 Teacher
"Welcome ladies and gentlemen, you're listening to the officer Tatum show him your hose Brandon Tatum. I have some tragic news. I know that you probably heard about it, but there was a tragic shooting in you of all Texas, 15 dead 14 of them were children shot at a elementary school in a small town called Yuval di population about 15,000 people in 78% population and Hispanic and I saw the picture of the shooter and he looks like he's Hispanic. He looked deranged. He looks like he's a minister of society. How did nobody detect that he was nutty? Is beyond me. On his social media, I Instagram, he posted magazines, he posted rifles, he seems like he was a deranged young man. And before the shooting at the school, at the elementary school, which he did not attend, he was 18 years old, he murdered his grandmother. And after murdering his grandmother, he went to the school and shot as many kids as he could. Right now, it doesn't appear that there's a clear motive other than him being insane. And it's a very tragic situation in my condolences and prayers go out to the families that have lost their loved ones in such a tragic event.

Political Consultant Chip Lake on the 'Outsider Effect'
"Chip, have you noticed like I have over the past say three or four election cycles that the idea of going from zero in politics to NFL, you know, so to speak, we've seen it campaigns, congressional campaigns, governors, campaigns. Has that become more of a trend than it used to be and why do you think that is? It's become a huge trend and it's largely due to one word. And that word is outsider, right? And, you know, being an outsider used to be a disadvantage when you, when you ran for the first time, it used to be an advantage in campaigns and elections to have experience as an elected official. And that's much less so now, right? I mean, 15 years ago, even ten, 15 years ago, if you were a local elected official and you were running for higher office, you know, you had inherent advantages over an opponent who was running for the first time. And those advantages are gone now in today's environment.
Early Voting in Georgia Is up 200% From 2018 Midterm
"There were 15 companies issuing statements condemning Georgia's election integrity law. Do you remember that? You remember that, you remember the all star Major League Baseball. Those woke dummies. They fled the state. They moved the All-Star Game from Atlanta to lily white Colorado. Coca Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola. Costing Atlanta millions and millions of dollars in revenue. In many cases, for black owned businesses and look at today, early voting in Georgia is through the roof. Up 200% from the 2018 midterms. Even up a 150% from the 2020 general election. That sound like voter suppression to you?

"Saying it. Other family members who I think like it or not, considerably failed John, are skip and pat straighter. Regardless of their reasons why, they hid critical evidence and information from law enforcement investigators. In doing so, they thwarted the police's ability to investigate the crime scene, unmanipulated. The choices skip and pat made on the day John died and in the days after, crippled the authorities ability to do their job in some ways. As adults, the fact that they did not even attempt lifesaving measures on John when they found him face down in the water was a lack of action, I'm not sure I'll ever be able to understand or reconcile in my mind. The one person that I think didn't fail John was his best friend, Patrick scanner. A voice you've heard throughout this entire series. Patrick spoke with police willingly, every time they asked, he never wavered on his story, and he's been the only person to not run and hide when asked to discuss the intimate details of this case. He sat down with me, a total stranger, nearly 20 years after finding his friend dead in the water, and he didn't hold back. I believe Patrick sincerely wants to know what happened to John and is upset. He's never gotten clear answers. He genuinely still misses his best friend, and you can hear it in the way he talks about John. I would love for him to be able to meet my wife, meet my daughter. I don't have a lot of close friends and never have. He was one of my close friends. It would be nice to have someone like him, you know, I've got those things that come with. I don't want to leave this story open ended, but sometimes that's just the nature of this line of work. There's not a pretty bow to tie up everything with a happy ending. I'll tell you, though, that I feel this case is far from over, or at least there's a bit of light that I think is coming from a cracked door that will just take a bit of pushing to swing wide open. And possibly result in some big changes. Just a few months ago, doctor Russell Vega called Helen Hough. They spoke for half an hour, and afterwards, she called me. She said that Vega told her he was not an expert in the way firearms function. He solely depended on law enforcement's information when he changed John's manner of death in 2017. He said he didn't have enough expertise to know if the information that he was given was wrong. He specifically said that he did not consider John's death to be a true accident. He said he actually leans more toward it not being an accident. However, based on the info he got, he felt there was enough doubt raised that he changed the death certificate. He told Helen that he couldn't and wouldn't swear in court to John's death being a result of an accident. But what he needs is more information. He said he had no problem with FDL getting involved again if they chose to. He also said he'd be happy to speak with Ruger firearms as well. Whatever it took to give him cause to evaluate the case for a second time. Until he's provided new credible information from an official law enforcement source that contradicts what he was given in 2017, Vega unfortunately just won't be able to do anything with the case. So here's where I think you the listeners can help. If you believe that the criminal investigation into John's death needs to be reopened, then right, call, email, snail mail to Florida department of law enforcement's headquarters. You can also contact their Sebring Florida office, which is the office that handled John's case in the very beginning. You should also contact de Soto county sheriff's office. You can also reach out directly to the district 12 medical examiner's office in Sarasota. Contact information for all of those agencies is in the show notes and on our website, counterclock podcast dot com. This July is the 19th anniversary of John's death. If he were still here, he'd be 36 years old by now. Who knows? Maybe he'd have opened up that general store, he told his mom about. Maybe he'd have some kids. A family life better than his own. Maybe he'd be a business owner. Nobody will ever know what would have been. But he's not here. He never made it out of that pasture in July of 2003. The same land that to this day is heavily fenced and barbed wired off from visitors. After all the work I've put into investigating this case, I've realized that my initial assessment about all that security on the southeast hansel property might have been wrong. I don't think the barriers in signage are about keeping people out. I think they're there to keep something in. Something that may explain who took John wells future. Something that can only be uncovered by reexamining the past. I hope you all enjoyed listening to this season of counter clock and take action to contact the entities I told you about.

"Writer and Patrick skinner. Upon completion of their interviews, their testimony was consistent with their original stories. I know memories fallible. Did you speak to him on the phone? I think so. What was his name? His name is detective James curdy. James curdy. I'm just out of county sheriff's office. I feel like my wife would know about that too because we were together in May, May of 2016. So that was a before I moved up here. Were you still in Arcadia? I was still in Arcadia. Do you ever remember a detective coming by, reinvestigating this case? I'm drawing a blank. If it was a quick phone call, I feel like I would remember now, just to be clear, I'm not saying James curdy lied in his report about interviewing Patrick. Maybe he did interview him, but I can't find the paper trail that proves that. The fact that Patrick doesn't even recognize James name or speaking with him at all, I think is devastating to the credibility of de Soto county's investigative process in 2016. And ultimately, the entire document James curtie submitted. I'm not here to cast judgment or say what's right or what's wrong, but this glaring discrepancy speaks volumes. I don't know why dcso has moved on from this case with no questions asked. I mentioned in the last episode that their motivation just being that they wanted to get an open homicide case off their books, just doesn't seem like a realistic reason to me. I mean, they still have plenty of unsolved murders in their jurisdiction. Some even date back further than John's. They've got open ended murder cases as far back as the 1980s on their roster. So why clear enclose John's case and not take any credit for it? Again, I think it comes down to a question of confidence. I would argue that the reason we are where we are is because mistakes were made and compounded, and perhaps covered up. Finding a way to conclude my investigation and really wrap my mind around this story has been tough. It's been emotionally draining. But I think where I've ultimately landed is that I believe John was murdered. If you're not convinced of that by now, that's fine. Maybe I'm in the minority here. But regardless of which conclusion you've come to, one thing I know for sure is that a lot of the people who knew John during the 17 years he was alive and the people tasked with finding out how he was killed failed him. For better or for worse, his family's nonstop infighting and their inability to get him to help he might have needed to deal with the behavioral and emotional problems he had, heard him. From everything I've learned about John, from the moment he was born, he was denied a chance at healthy, loving relationships that would have benefited him. And maybe even changed the course of his life. He was a young man with a big imagination and dreams. He liked animals. He liked the outdoors. You know, he talked about going to the coast guard. When he was little, it was so weird, he said, one day he wanted to own a general store, just sell everything, and I asked him, and I said, well, what's it going to be the name of that? He's just white cherries. I said, what? Yeah, white cherries. Don't sell lanterns and pickles and you start even weird stuff. I thought, well, that's good. John's actual family may have been scattered in tattered, but his close friends, people like Patrick skinner, considered him family, and still would, if he was around. I think we would have definitely still been friends. I imagine he would have kids by now..

"Appreciate it. Hello everyone. My name is Delia dean bra and I'm an investigative journalist for audio check podcast network. For the last several months, I've been investigating the July 2003 death of a 17 year old man named John wells who died from a gunshot wound and drowning in Arcadia, Florida. On July 9th, 2003, John's death was ruled a homicide by doctor William Anderson of the district 12 medical examiner's office. Doctor Anderson is now in private practice, but at the time was employed by the 12th district. Two weeks after doctor Anderson concluded his initial findings, the 12th district Emmy's office requested a second position named doctor Daniel Spitz to consult on the case and conduct a second autopsy. Doctor smith's findings were the same as doctor Anderson's that John wells died as a result of being shot by another with a manner of death as homicide. 14 years later, in February of 2017, doctor Russell Vega, who is the current chief of the 12th district Emmy's office, met with de Soto county law enforcement investigators and agreed to review the case and reconsider John wells manner of death. On March 15th, 2017, doctor Vega amended the manner of death on John wells autopsy and his death certificate and changed it from being a homicide to undetermined, thus allowing law enforcement to close the criminal investigation into John's death. I have provided supporting public documents to Chad Lucas and the board on this matter, which includes doctor Vega's two page explanation of why he changed John's manner of death, despite expressing that he had doubts the victims wound trajectory and likely immediate incapacitation matched the theory that law enforcement could presented. Doctor William Anderson and doctor Daniel Spitz have stated on record that neither of them was contacted by doctor Vega prior to doctor Vega filing his amendment on the autopsy. Both physicians feel their input would have been helpful and necessary in order for doctor Vega to reasonably change the manner of death in this case. I am requesting Sammy C evaluate doctor Vegas actions and his autopsy addendum and determine if all Florida statutes were followed. Lastly, please consider this data taken directly from the MEC's annual workload reports dating back to 2003. On average, in the last 18 years, the number of deaths ruled as homicides by the district 12 medical examiner's office have been consistent between 35 and 40 homicides per year. In all of those years, with the exception of one year, the number of deaths ruled as undetermined average between 5 and 8. So significantly less undetermined deaths in homicides in that region. In 2017, the same year that the 12th district changed John wells manner of death from homicide to undetermined. That office ruled 17 deaths as undetermined. The highest number of undetermined death rule wings than any year prior. I would like the MEC to evaluate its own data and figure out why this anomaly occurred in the 12th district in 2017 and request that doctor Vega and his staff provide a reasonable explanation. As I speak before you today, I am four months pregnant with my first child. I hope that my child would live to see beyond their 17th birthday, which was not a luxury afforded to John wells. For the sake of surviving family and a general public, please consider this request an information and pursue it. Thank you. As I walked away from the podium, the room got quiet. I think everyone was digesting what I just laid out. Iconic glimpse of doctor Vega in one of his assistant Emmys near the back of the room, and knew that everything I just said had landed on them with a lot of weight. To be fair, though, I'd requested to speak with doctor Vega multiple times before that point, and I was also still waiting on his staff to fulfill public records requests. So it's not like there wasn't fair warning and due diligence on my part. By the time I sat back down in my seat, the chairman had quickly gotten things moving along again.

"Every one of them came from various career fields, two medical examiners, a state attorney, a public defender, a sheriff, a funeral home director, another lawyer, and a county commissioner. Some of the seats were filled, some of them were vacant, but they were an assorted bunch for sure. After the members introduced themselves, everyone else in the room stood up one by one and said their names and titles too, which I'll be honest was really awkward considering there were like 50 or 60 people in attendance. Not wanting to be the only one who stayed silent, I didn't hesitate when it got to me. Investigative journalist. If up until that point, anyone had any doubt about why I was there. It became clear in that moment. I got some head turns and leaning over looks, but whatever, I'm used to it. After a few more people introduced themselves, I heard a man's voice from several rows behind me, say that he was doctor Russell Vega, the chief medical examiner of the 12th district. When I heard his voice, I felt my heart jump a little bit in my chest because this was the guy I'd be speaking about during my 5 minutes in public comment, and he was sitting just a few seats away from me.

"Podcast sprinkle with hope and that's going to help get me on the path to listen to these cool guys and hear what they have to say. Yeah. I love love that. But I mean I'm a big fan of sprinkle of hope so some of my right but I like what you said cuz it kind of, you know, it reminds me of you know, sometimes some of us even have a hard time getting out of bed, right? Like that's that could be the simple goal is just having your alarm set and waking birth. Put that specific time that you have and just got out of get out of bed at the time. You say you're going to get out of bed. That could be a commitment right there. I mean some of us have a really difficult time waking up in the morning. And so, you know and then celebrate that Wednesday awesome. I got up this morning. It's amazing, right? Yeah, you know and so celebrate those little window. It doesn't have to be I'm going to go climb Mount Everest tomorrow or I'm going to go hike Mount Kilimanjaro, right? You know, it doesn't have to be that big you can really think about all these little small steps to get you just through your day right and make those your commitments. I think also, you know, we've often heard this thing called the comfort zone, right? What is that? is our comfort zone and we want to stay there. We just we don't want to leave that and sometimes it is okay to stay in the comfort zone. You know if it's going to hurt you in some way or it's going to affect you and it's going to be difficult. Maybe it is good to stay in your comfort zone. But our brain when it is challenged with new experiences and commitments that helps us to grow. So we need to try some new things. We need to help get ourselves out of that comfort zone. We know neurologically that our brain changes when we make and keep those commitments when our brain physically changes when we do those things and helps to build those neural Pathways as it becomes more alert and active.

"We may not find ourselves doing when we're on our own singing but there's power in our praise. Yeah and there's power in our worship. What's the spiritual significance of each element. would we come together and worship and sing and praise. Praise god it glorifies. The lord together at strengthens us right. It invokes the presence of the lord When we exalt his name mean the praise worship part of our service. The bible says this god inhabits the praises of his people. There's something powerful supernatural. When god's people come together and praise him and worship him. Yeah god just he touches us in ways that maybe we would not be touched outside of worship. Yeah so do you think then. It's safe to say that singing in church become so important because it reminds us of how great god really is the lyrics of the song exalt and praise the name of the lord It does it reminds of that. Yeah how important he is. How great he is. And and you want to let. Let's take a deeper than just singing because you can sing and not worship when you sing the new jonas brothers songs are you necessarily worshiping. I don't think so. They came out with two new songs. Their bangor's if you ask me. But that's been speaking pastor so singing. His part of worship worship so i like what's the spiritual significance of worship when we really are worshiping together. It glorifies god and he speaks to us and then that prepares our heart to hear the word of god. Yeah and we need to hear the word of god So why is the word of god. Some important that sermon part of what we talk about in church wise. That's important it builds us up. Yeah it corrects us. Good wrong every sermon. If every wherever church have every sermon leaves you feeling good might be in the wrong place. That's it might be in our own place. Because god never gave us his word. So we feel good right. We need it for instruction for correction right in righteousness so the it should step on our toes. Break our legs so we need that part. That's good and a communion. Yeah he's drinking. The cup always reminds us of the death and the resurrection of jesus we liaise elements in our life super good and if we don't want them we have to ask ourselves. Why super a to remind us of this is this. Our whole faith is based off of what jesus didn't across our whole trajectory of life is based off of what jesus didn't across and so having that moment of communion to symbolize His his blood that was out for us is broken body That that was that was broken for us. It's just a such a great reminder of what christ did for us and then brings us to this point where we can recognize. He gave it all for me. I can get my life back to him. He gave it all for me so we give back. Hey we're overtime. we're two minutes past. I'm sorry gel or jokes. Nari or station manager doesn't fire us something else place.

"We're going to go when it's convenient and the devil will give a thousand reasons not to go and what happens is we're not going being fed and i guarantee this people that are not attending church regularly. I doubt are feeding very much. That's probably very true and we talked about this last week about scripture and why that's so important we can't base everything off of one meal a week right one meal of me. Getting fed on a sunday is not going to sustain me for monday. Tuesday wednesday always saturday. I need to feed myself daily or to sustain myself so when i don't prioritize my my my church family the body of christ when i don't prioritize that begin to drift And if i can't find ninety minutes on sunday to go. I doubt i'm finding much time through the week to sell feed. That's consistency matters. Not only not only once a week or a small group twice a week but not only is consistency with that. It matters but daily consistency in fronting myself. The bread of life daily consistency of worship. If we're going to be strong in the lord that's good and people that don't prioritize the relationship with god. The body of christ daily feeding. I guarantee you. There's a falling away and the further we drift from our relationship with christ the more things even sinful things can get in between us and the lord. That's going we find ourselves weaker and weaker and weaker in our faith matters daily. Weekly with christ. That's really good. All right we just a couple of minutes left here. And so i want to ask this last question And and this is this one's fund. And i think it's fun because you've got the answer already because i have the answer is no. I think this is fun. Because i think a lot of times when we're in the church for so long these things just become so normal to us that we forget how weird they can be to someone who doesn't know anything. So what's a question so the question is this. What's the spiritual significant of each elements of worship or each element of these church services. So what it comes down to singing when it comes down to the sermon. When it comes down to communion there's other parts of it too but let's ship fellowship. Let's at least talk about those three singing the sermon and then communion the singing part of the praise and the worship part even in the old testament or in the new testament. You find people doing together right okay. And there's something about being together when when we we may..

"Go onto the next level there. Why does consistency of going to church than matter. Why does consistency matter. You know what. It's just. Because i think when we do something regular it creates a healthy hab right now. It doesn't mean we go to church on a habit but just pick and choose wonder fouled gold this week or next week consists i think we we develop very healthy habit. I'm to. I'm going to assemble with the believers. I'm gonna assemble the believers. It just matters because because if you leave it up to a whim. I'll tell you what there will be something that comes up. Yeah no matter what. The kids got to go somewhere need to do the gardening of alone. There's always going to be something. That's going to compete on a sunday with gonna church. My dog looks to sad. So i don't want to leave him by himself. It matters it matters because it matters because we need each other. And don't anybody think for half a second that we don't need each other. Why does consistency matter. Because you know what. There's a scripture over look at ecclesiastes chapter four. I'll try talks about two or better than one. Yeah consistency matters. Because if we don't develop consistency there will always be something that gets in the way we need to come together with other believers to worship together. And it's not just for me to be encouraged but my being there might encourage you right. Consistency matters because we need to worship with the body of christ. We need to hear the word of the lord. What what's the scriptures are given for instruction in righteousness and to correct where we're out of lead to worship. We need to hear the word of god we need to fellowship with other believers and consistency matters because once we start neglecting that very vital part of our christian life. It's easy to follow away. Yeah yeah if i don't i don't have these things as a reminder. I don't have these people who are next to me to sharpen me then. It's easy for me to slow just like all right. Well you know any anything can come distract me and and be better than whatever know. Whatever i'm thinking of. I really feel like going to church because of x. y. and z. And those are easy to take over and it's creating the habit because you know it's the thing that god wants you to do to be able to to continue to walk the path. He's calling you on and we prioritized christ in our life this way. Yeah because christ cares about the body. Christ cares about the bride. Christ cares about the church and so by us being able to care about the things that he cares about We're aligning up with his. And what happens is when so many people are doing today. In american christianity is we compartmentalize. Not christ we compartmentalized church and it's on the circumference of our life. Yeah here i've got my job. I've got my family. I've got my career. I've got my school and there's church and in yours christ and we've compartmentalized it. When when instead of putting the body of christ on the circumference of her life it needs to be brought more to the center of our life. And so we need. We need this consistency because when we compartmentalize jesus and the body of christ..

"I would say nine times out of ten. They've been hurt in some church and there's a there's an offense that they're holding onto will set up a rather be dealing with that thing that i'm facing i can just ignore it altogether or ignore situations that are similar to it all together by placing myself in the building. Let me just stay away and we talked about this earlier. I was talking with some of the some of our team here. An grieves me one of the things. That grieves me so terribly is that the church is a place where people should come and find healing and help and hope and yet to find hurt now now. Let's talk about levels of hurt. Because i mean somebody didn't shake my hand and i. I could be slightly offended but the hurt i'm talking about is a crushing type of a hurt right and there are people. I believe that love god. Today that are sitting home and refusal back into a church because of pastor hurt them an elder hurt them they were treated unfairly. But but so. That grieves me when the church should be a place of healing and hope and help becomes a place where people get hurt Terrible thing to go into a hospital and get sick. You know hospital to get better. Yeah so. I think the people that ask. That question are often often people who are who are hurting. And they just want to live in isolation. Yeah there was a quote. And i can't remember exactly what it is. But it's by tyler. Reagan who's in charge of catalysts right now and essentially go something along the lines of that. I seldom know anybody who's walked away from the faith. Because of jesus but i know plenty of people who walked away from the faith because of his followers so it's people who who said who had hurt these individuals and they've walked away from the faith or walked away from church because they don't want to deal with those people all over again so true so when when you look at the new testament can you be a christian and just sit home absolutely anytime anyone puts more qualifications on being a christian having faith in jesus and then we've we've got to be careful of that you can be a christian home. Is it natural. No all through the new testament. They were gathered together worship together. Broke bread together prayed together there. You will not find isolation in the new testament. Yeah anywhere we need each other and if there's anyone who's out there today listening and you've just experienced some real deep in the church and you're just doing life by yourself. Well i really. I really encourage really i pray for your healing today and get back connected to the body of christ. That's good that's good all right. So that's that's why it's important to come to church law..

"So we'll talk about solid doctrine. I would want the church. I'd wanna feel welcomed. When i walked in i would want to sense the presence of the lord and worship and in the preaching of the word but beyond that i would look for opportunities to fellowship with other churches most are good at the big group setting but did they have a smaller group setting like we have life groups at where i could connect with a smaller group of people beyond that i would look for opportunities to serve. Yeah i've talked to people that said you know i've been going to this church but it seems like just seems like The same people do everything and they don't. They are not even interested in me. Helping right you know no no so i would look for opportunities to serve and was my gift or gifts welcomed there. Yeah so there's a lot of things to look at Beyond the denominational name on the door and they're welcoming. Am i sensing. The presence of god is the word alive get is there an opportunity to fellowship in a smaller group and is there an opportunity for me to serve. When all those dots connect could be could be a good place But let me. There are people now. Maybe looking for a church. Here's what i've suggested to people that they should come to the founder of life. Absolutely but but when you're looking for church don't ever judge a church on one visit. no. Pastor is as good as his best serving high or as bad as his worst. So i always suggest to people when you go and try out a church. Give it three sundays now. If i walk in and it's just like bad bad you may not go back. But but i don't think it's fair to judge anyone church on sunday maybe the usher at the door just died. I shouldn't say that you said it already listened dog about but maybe they had a really bad day and they didn't welcome you like they would have sunday any other day. Yeah yeah don't ever. I would encourage you. Don't ever judge anyone church on one service right. Maybe the key worship leader wasn't there. So i would. When i look at church. I would say go for three sundays. That's good because then you can kind of get an a better understanding of the wholeness of what the churches and then you know in your mental scorecard take an average versus saying this one. Sunday is the only representation that i'm going to have for this place. Yeah i never thought of it like that. Maybe we maybe getting a little more spiritual here and say pray about this. Maybe we should've started with that. We should have started with that one time but really you may walk new church. You may feel the holy spirit birthday. This is where i want. You know so. So we need to pray because i believe the scriptures say that the steps of the righteous are ordered of the lord. God we'll order your steps. If you see can you will find him and he will lead you in the right way. That's good all right so we talked bell all these different dominations or talked about how to go about selecting a the right church inappropriate appropriate church so then..

"You can't tyrians. You can't say you completely wasted your time with us today. Hopefully you wouldn't say that anyway. So that's a lot of the different denominations came from and that's where they were birth. Okay just today. Yeah so then. The follow up question is what should a christian look for in selecting appropriate church. We have all these different denominations. We have all these different interpretations of scripture. We have all of these different thoughts. That people have on what to do. So how should a christian. How should a follower of jesus go about selecting an appropriate church. Well i'll tell you how a lot of people do it. Well my grandfather was a baptist baptist by god. I'm about this. A lot of our choices in church. Come from a family history. I don't think so much anymore though. I think that was that. Was you know we moved into a new town. My parents were presbyterian so i'm going to be presbyterian. I don't think it's so that way anymore. I think that in today people are looking for church. That really helps meet their spiritual needs first of all. I think when we're looking at selecting an appropriate church it has to be doctrinal sound on an orthodox christianity Talking about the the virgin birth. Right the senlis. Life of jesus that he did miracles that he died substitution. Every death on the cross was buried and he rose again from the dead sent his holy spirit to us and he's coming again that's orthodox christianity or simply orthodoxy is death burial resurrection of jesus. There you go so that's got to be there. Come on if that's not their crossing the list right if somebody says anything other than jesus christ as the only way to get to heaven if they're saying anything else just walk out right away. I'd say put your nikes on run any any church. That would not present christ and him. Crucified resurrected as the only way of salvation. We just got. Please move away so number one in selecting a church there has to be solid biblical doctrines. Good now that's just the foundation. But are we going to move on from there. I i was thinking about this. I'd wanna feel welcomed. Yeah because if i walked into a church. And even if i was there for two or three weeks i felt like i was still a stranger cared. I was there. I'd probably keep looking. Let's get a church that's welcoming because here's the thing. The the fruit of the spirit love joy peace patients kindness goodness faithfulness selfish selflessness and self-control though should be manifested in the people of that church. So if you're there two or three weeks and you don't feel welcomes that's that's a conversation about not feeling that people aren't showing any type type of love you know if i walk into an assembly believers in. I don't feel like the fruit of the spirit of love..

"I think so okay. So we're gonna we're gonna jump into. This is just like what passed arrest was talking about. Today we're going to be talking about the church and the importance of church. I think a lot of times we get a little confused. Or maybe the desire of like. I'd kind of rather sleep in or i'm not sure even understands why i should go to this church. Not that church and so we're gonna jump some of those things. Okay so here's question number one for you all right. Why are there so many different christian denominations. I think a lot of people wonder that. Yeah yeah you know there's methodist and lutheran and presbyterian baptist and suddenly you've got a why well let's let's go back to the origin of denominations really may major denominations came out of the protestant reformation. In the sixteenth century. Lutheran look at the history. That's coming out. So that's where the major denominations came out of here. Okay so maybe. Where did they come from. So let's take the lutheran okay. He largely based on martin luther teaching and then. Let's go to the methodists. You know think about it. It's cool when we look at where these words came from and so the methodist got their name. Really out of look at john wesley's different methods for church growth so creative methods. We'll go methods so the root word is method. Yeah so they had their methods for church growth. So would they recalled methodist so. We've got luther. The lutherans teachings based on on martin luther. We've got methodists. John wesley the founder. They're different methods for church. Growth the presbyterians The really they took their presbyterian from the greek word presbyteries okay and that was really their view on church leadership. And then you go to the baptist. Because they emphasized baptism water baptism so hence they got the name baptist. Good you move a little bit more full gospel churches that believe in the sign gifts. Okay public speaking in tongues and prophecies and gifts of healing in the nine gifts of the spirit. Where those gifts are are emphasized. So there are different theologies and different emphasis. But really the denominational world was born the sixteenth century out of the protestant reformation major denominations like again lutheran methodist baptist anglican and then just other other denominations were burst out of out of. There's right has a different twist on theology and so a new denomination was born. But the different denominations are largely. They differ on either theology or just a different emphasis pre tribulation rapture post tribulation. Sign gives no sign gifts. And that's really where the christian denominations came from. That's an an interpretation of scripture. Comes down to whether you believe this theology or theology rarely just an interpretation of scripture is how all of those different things break down. Do you know where we got the assemblies. Oh god out of should know. Come on god was born in the early one thousand nine hundred where the name come from all over the news come from with your presbyterian. I don't know how about that. I know more about the materials and the methodist assembly guy. Set you up. Because i know the answer. So here's the thing that's why we have the distance now and the radio show. Okay answer your all. I will answer my own question. The name specifically for the assemblies of god comes out of hebrews chapter ten verse twenty five where it says not forsaking the assembling of of the believers. Okay so assembly. Of god one pastor rubin. Thank you you learn. You learned some things today you go about..
"15" Discussed on Dead Man Talking
"This a while ago. We've got a couple of questions on when you met presenters. Now, I once for Mogam pays what was it like to sit across and speak with a known serial killer. If you had a lot of emotions would love to know cheers from Tennessee. I was nervous. You know? I I don't even to death row. A couple of times before interviewing resent his that was the only prison. I think I'd have visited in two thousand and three. And so, yeah, I was nervous certainly. And what was interesting was. He wasn't scary people think of resent his is amongst and rightly so in some respects, and they think of that you have if you've never been to death row, you have this image. Everyone who is on death row is this monster. But the truth is that when you meet these people, I've never met anybody on death row who didn't seem boringly normal in most cases, just like meal you and in a way that sort of more scary. I think that resent his is the Solta person that you could have met and just not remembered just a unmemorable besetting not this. This ferocious scary monster that you'd sort of imagine. But that makes me think actually that you should listen to next week's episode because I interviewed his for an hour. And I have my own opinion of what he was like, but you're gonna hit from somebody next week union a bit better, and has a different opinion little tease there from lex. And the next question. We don't actually have name we've lost that. But it's from somebody Austrailia when you first spoke rezendes, what was his expression was composed. Did he seem to have contempt for what he's done was afraid to die? He was very composed smiling willing to tool very matter of fact, not just about describing mundane things about you know, what you had for breakfast that day, but also describing the murders. There was no difference actually in his demeanor. When he was describing mundane things about his routine in prison, and when he was describing killing somebody just very Matra fact and was he afraid to die. I often that and he said he fit God. That's all. So I don't know whether that means he fade. The needle the actual the fade physically being executed or whether he feared the repercussions in what he thought was going to be you know, the off the life. Next one is a long similar lines. From Jacqueline cripe highly. It's been mentioned that resent didn't have remorse because he was killing in the name of God. However, I was wondering if he had remorse when he found out that the pediatric surgeon wasn't really an abortionist. What was his reaction? Maybe I missed it. But did he read as he got that one wrong? That's a good question. I didn't ask him that. But I can say the unfairly certain that there was no remorse, and that he was adamant that he was justified in killing Claudia Benton. And I say this because we deliberately left out some audio in the podcast from my interview with resent his way, he continued to justify attacking Christopher Maya and Holly done in Kentucky. We felt it was disrespectful to Holly to include it. But. When I interviewed him, which was three days before he's execution. There was certainly no remorse in that respect. A he still was sort of justifying in his own mind and to me. Still resent as this is from David Pavee who Facebook rezendes was nearly literal in both Spanish English. Could that be why couldn't recall the train stations? They stopped sets. And the second part also many of described him as highly intelligent. How did this intelligence manifest in him? When you met him in. What ways was he highly intelligence? Okay. I'll take the first part that question first. So. Resent his was electorate David says could be could be why he couldn't recall the train stations. He stopped had possibly Chuck. We've told us in an earlier episode. Repetition can cloud specific. So in other words, you know, resent his killed so many times that he probably forgot the specifics of each individual crime. But not only that I mean, this was somebody who quite side from the killing was a drifta wiz crossing the US by freight train constantly. And so we have no idea how many times he criss crossed the nation by train or how many cities he went to how many places he went to the row network multiple times. But I'm sure that each one would sort of blend into the other, and he just wouldn't be able to remember specific. So for example, Blyth live is a good example because he couldn't remember the name of the town. He just remembers getting off jumping off. And of course, this wasn't. None of these were official stops. It wasn't like he was jumping off and seeing a sign that said welcome to Blyth he's jumping off at random. So he's jumping off when the train slows down in a town that he may not really know where he is. And then just walking to a place where people probably directing him the the river or whatever. And and that's it. So I'm sure that's why probably more so than any intelligence issue. I think that's probably why he's not recalling specifics in certain cases, second part the question. How did the intelligence manifest because people described him as highly intelligent? I mean, I've interviewed many inmates on death row. Some with low I q some with high high accuse resent his wasn't well educated. But apparently, you had a high IQ all I can say is his responses were very thoughtful and articulate particularly considering considering English was he second language. But I really can't comment on. So I don't know what he's I q was. But certainly, you know, he was in the upper end of people. I interview I've interviewed on death row in terms of the way, he kind of related responses. All right, next one from Ahmed's Benali one Anghel was Indus was doing his killing spree. Do you think he was using the mind of cults, for example, Charles Manson? No, I mean, he wasn't inspired by any cult leader that they called him a mission driven serial killer. So he was definitely so possessed with this religious fervor. And you know, I think that that's what drove him. I really believe. That's what drove him was his belief that he was doing the work of God rather than you know, you. And you know, you could say that sort of cult like in in in the way, he was kind of doing this. And he was very single minded and blinkered in what he was doing really believed. He was doing the right thing. So yes, or no does a lot. Final question on his end is move on this is from Charlotte Tele as from Denmark, why was rezendes only charged with one murder. They clearly knew he committed more Elsie would not have made it to the most wanted list. It must be unsatisfying for the families of the other victims. He was never put to Justice for those crimes. This is a really good question. So it comes down to time and money, and I actually got some notes Tarija. So the death penalty in Texas New see why I'm going to one telling you this in in order to be eligible for the death penalty in Texas. You have to kill the victim has to be a peace officer of firemen killed while on GT. The murder has to cut while the defendant was committing or attempting to commit another crime like a kidnapping, burglary, robbery, sexual assault, or arson has to be a murder for hire. Like a hitman. The mud has to occurred during the course of actual attempted prison break multiple murders have occurred as a result of the defendant's acts or the victim was younger than ten years old. So with that in mind the Benton murder because there was a sexual assault is well qualified resent his for the death penalty. So what the prosecution would have done is find the murder that he committed where it was cut and dried and in this case there was DNA evidence. And a confession to me. It was it was a very easy case to convict him on. And it's also important to remember that he's attorneys admitted he killed nine people in total at the time of his trial. So at the time of sentencing, so the names and the details of these other crimes were brought up now, admittedly there have been since then while he was on death row, there were more admissions. And of course, as we've like revealed in the podcast that could have been. Even more than that. And yes, you're right. Those the victims of potential victims families a never gonna get that sort of closure. If if that's what closure looks like to see resent his being convicted of those particular crimes, but also the cost involved. It costs an average of two point three million dollars to put somebody on death row. And that includes all that at trial costs the appeal costs the investigations keeping them in prison until their execution cost to the execution. So the whole thing is about estimated to be around two point three million thing. So that cost will go up if you have several convictions. So there's a cost element to it as well. Should we take a break? Sure. Back after this. Briefly
"15" Discussed on Dead Man Talking
"Back in two thousand and three. I'm just glad that we could revisit it. Now next one from Keith Miller via Twitter on your own personal level, outta Hsun. There's a huge emotional investment. What sort of impact is this investigation had on your overall quality of life? May impede genuinely never thought. That would get where we are now with the hack. Okay. So certainly there's a sense of relief. I'm sure Pete you feel the same the all the work that we put in we feel vindicated somehow hunch that he was telling the truth, and that they seem to be hose in the case against Andres and the case against demon Tina was born out, so certainly that's a positive impact. But I also know that we need to keep pushing to get this habeas appeal on show. Just because the podcast has ended is about to end that doesn't mean sort of the kind of legal stuff has ended. It hasn't happened yet. So it's important that she to tell your friends about the podcast series spread the word because the more people that listen, you know, the motions theories that something will be done. But I think that this made me think a bit p case question, maybe think about the impact of interviewing people on death row the been doing now full. Fifteen sixteen years of witness the neck secure. Of written about trauma for a long time. And that can have an impact. So I was just actually going to use that as an opportunity to name check, a really amazing organization. Sickie journalists reporters the listening to the podcast dot center DART based out of Columbia University. In New York, I've been affiliated with him for longtime. But they exist the two reasons one to help journalists become better at reporting on traumatized people. So so have a deeper understanding of troll Marin his impact so that they can become better at reporting on that. But also, they help journalists who cover trauma deal with the impact that might have on themselves. So, you know, everyone from the wool correspondent to the person that covers child abuse to the person that covers particularly horrendous criminal trials will crime stories or whatever. So self cat tips and stuff anyway edgy, check out the website at the dot sent a website and have a look at what they do. They've got less tip sheets and stuff on there as well. So they're really helpful for what I do. What about the impact it has on you? I will call of life. When you are speaking to some really, quite unpleasant people who've done some terrible things is it something that affects you on a day-to-day level. Or did you think after so many years you're used to? I think I think I'm used to think I'm able to compartmentalize it so about some other sort of pretty traumatic stuff aside from stuff on criminal Justice and of seen some pretty kind of unpleasant upsetting things, but I'm able to compartmentalize it and part of my so of self care methods to have you big circle of friends and. Lots of people to talk to people that also that cover the same stuff got love friends who journalists who cover similar so ground, and it's good to kind of. Talk to them regularly and stuff and just sort of decompress that way. Nice next question is from Bonnie pain, big friend of the show. Did you regret not managing to find an ultimately get Cathy Burnett and her students to look over the Muskoka sooner? I don't think that I would have been in a position to try and get low school to look a case and the and the amount of evidence and an in the trial transcript, the amount of the just the sheer number of pages that you have to kind of look through and go through the fun toothcomb wouldn't have been able to do that had. We not been doing this off the back of a podcast that had already so of become fairly successful. We'd had already had lots of listeners and lots of kind of engagement with people that publicity around it. And I think that was part of the reason that I was able to get Kathy and her students to look at it. You know, this we're working on this poker series. We kind of nearing the end there's only so much. I can do I feel a lawyer needs to look at this now. And I I'm not I'm not saying Kathy wouldn't have done that had got in touch with her. You know, when I first interviewed rezendes, she may well, she may well have done, but. But no, I think that I mean, you know, I'm sure if you asked the Tina Andres, they'd say, yeah, why the hell didn't anyone do this? You know, fifteen twenty years ago. But it is what it is. We we've managed to get some sort of movement on this stuff now. And I'm just glad that that's happened. They seem really glad this is happened as well. You know, demon teen is written to me. She really appreciates the kind of effort that people are going to look into the case against I'm with Andres that heard from his family second part of question. Do you agree losing the type for so many years? Yeah, I do actually I think that you know, I I lived in the UK as you know, move back to the UK. For a few years after the resented into. But we've actually moved back again to Texas still didn't have the type then. But certainly I was writing a lot more about criminal Justice. And I think that had I had the type then, you know, I probably would have revisited this
