Kevin McCullough: A Story From Working With Christian Solidarity Int'l
"An amazing opportunity. And Kevin, because we've just begun this month, I thought it would be good to get you to talk about it because you're familiar with CSI and with how they do what they do. Yeah, well, I've had the great humbling honor to be a spokesperson for them for the last ten years or so. And one of the things that I can not get away from. And for the people that are watching your show on rumble or wherever you post it, I want you to see that the picture of this lady's face that I'm holding up to the camera right there. You can't see it very much, but I think you can at least get a glimpse of the smile. This is a woman by the name of a choke. And her story is very similar to many of the stories that you will hear about and you will read about in the work of CSI. But when she was taken into slavery and a lot of this happened during the Sudan Civil War, which was, I think, 1995, and when the Arabs from the northern section of what was then the united Sudan would travel down into the southern regions where the Christians were ransacked villages, they would rampage through towns. They would kill lots of the men and boys. They would grab and take captive the women and children and begin marching them towards the north. These were the spoils of war. This is what's happened since the beginning of time. But when they were put into slavery, they were treated completely inhumane. And I could detail some of what they've gone through a choke. The ladies whose picture I just showed you, she was systematically abused moment she was taken into captivity as a 9 year old girl.
Carl Jackson: If We Want to Save America, We Have to Stay and Fight
"Instead of encouraging people to get married and to have babies and instead of encouraging women not to kill their unborn babies, the answer to America's population problem is more illegal immigration. Well, what about the population problem that will occur in the countries that they left? Fascinating what the left does. And guys, listen, call your congressman call your senators. I know that we were all hoping to get a break. But if we're going to save America, we've got to stay in this fight. Listen, our soldiers and World War I World War II Vietnam, the Korean War, the Iraq War, Afghanistan, war. They didn't get to rest. The Civil War, the Revolutionary War, they didn't get to rest. Neither do we, and we don't have to take up arms. Thank God to do it. So we have to stay in this fight and right now. God, I wish the Republicans would do something eventually. I've praying to God we get a simple supermajority one day and we will do something about this lame duck session because the left is gonna do all that they can to cram legislation down our throats while they can. These people don't play by the rules. Republicans want to play nice. It isn't gonna work.
John Zmirak and Eric Discuss Samuel Alito's Dismantling of Roe V Wade
"Samuel Alito, in his decision overturning roe V wade and Planned Parenthood V Casey, he doesn't talk about the morality of abortion. He doesn't talk about the unborn baby being human. He doesn't talk about Christianity. What he does is exactly what the lawyers did in the movie denial. Systematically dismantles the false intentionally deceptive, shallow, dishonest arguments offered in roe V wade and Planned Parenthood V Casey to pretend that the U.S. Constitution as adopted in 1787 and amended after the Civil War to pretend that the constitution secretly entailed the right to abortion. And he systematically obliterates all the arguments offered by the left in favor of abortion being protected by the U.S. Constitution. He doesn't show that they're false. He shows that they're garbage. They're garbage. They're worse actually than David Irving's falsification. But just to be clear, so the parallels clear to those listening in case people are missing it. In other words, rather than play to the crowd, knowing that abortion is a monstrous evil, just like we know what happened in the Holocaust is a monster evil. Rather than doing that, what Alito does just as Deborah lipstadt's lawyers do. They effectively say, no, we're going to pitch our argument at the legal experts. Right. We're going to show legally bloodlessly how this fails completely on a legal basis on a basis of fact, we're going to take a motion out of it, not that emotions ought to be taken out of it. But these are the tax taken by the lawyers in that case. And then by Sam Alito, so that's a brilliant parallel. That's
What Should Be the Right's Top Issue? Larry Elder Weighs In
"No matter whether it's Trump, or it's elder, or it's desantis, or what do you think needs to be that top issue that Republicans are moving forward with? Because there's been a lot of controversy about whether or not we got the messaging rate, I feel like we did. I don't know how you can say that talking about people's pocketbooks and their safety is wrong. But what should it be? Well, it's pocketbook issues, but I do think we underestimated the power of a couple of issues. One abortion. The other one is this phone issue of so called election denied. When roe V wade got overturned, I wasn't terribly concerned about it, although there was a flurry for a while, threat on the part of conservatives, it's going to energize the Democrats. But I thought it was going to go away. I thought it had gone away. The polling suggested that it had, but the exit polling suggested that the polling was wrong. It was the number two issue after the economy and well ahead of crime. And so we got that wrong. And I think a lot of Republicans failed to convince people that the reality is all the reversal of growth did is put this issue back to the states where it was for the first nearly 200 years of our republic. What's wrong with that? And I think a lot of Democrats believe that rogue reversal romantic abortion was going to be illegal. And I think it was a bad move on the part of Lindsey Graham to suggest that there's going to be some sort of national legislation to codify restrictions on abortion. It should not be a federal issue either pro choice or pro life. It should be a statewide issue. And I think that scared a lot of people. Regarding the election denying nonsense, you know, Carrie Lake, I thought Hanley pretty well when she informed her voters that Hillary has been denying elections for 5 years and Stacey Abrams denying elections for two years and Al Gore to this day believes that the Supreme Court put George W. Bush in office Vinny Thompson the chair of the January 6th committee tried to overturn the election first week of January 2005 by claiming that the Ohio debo voting machines have been tampered with, there's no evidence that that my point is for 22 years Democrats have been denying elections. I think a lot of Democrats are unaware of that. The reason I know that is I was in Dallas at an airport just a couple of days ago, Jen, and I'm talking to this moderate self described moderate, professor, and he was talking about how he felt that election denying earth the Republicans on Tuesday. And I told him what I told you about Hillary denying election for 5 years. He said, and I quote, I never heard her do that. I said, professor with all due respect, you are part of the problem that
Jennifer Horn and Larry Elder Discuss Trump or DeSantis for 2024
"Is here. Hi, Larry. How are you? Thank you so much for having me. I appreciate it. You are traveling all over, I know. And before we chat about that, let's talk about a couple of things first. We have on tap the big announcement scheduled for Donald Trump tomorrow. He's jumping into the race for the presidency in 2024. A lot of media establishment types are trying to turn this into a Civil War, I believe, between Ron DeSantis and Donald Trump. We're on desantis hasn't said he's running yet, but certainly there is stuff happening behind the scenes. And what do you make of that? Do you think there's room for both of them or do you feel like I do where it should be maybe Trump then desantis not Trump versus desantis? Well, the media doesn't need to make it into a Civil War. Donald Trump has already fired the first shot by calling him Ron sanctimonious and saying that but for Donald Trump, he would not have become governor and that he had some dirt on Ron that he may put out in the event that Ron decides to run. So I think the first volley has already been fired by mister Trump.
Jennifer Horn: 'Mitch McConnell Gamed All of Us'
"So many problems right now with our party and so much of it comes from leadership. Today, I've been saying that Mitch McConnell game to all of us. I don't think he really cared about winning the majority in the Senate. He let Blake masters hang. He let Adam laxalt hang. He had no intention of helping Herschel Walker. He is not doing that. He allowed them to be outspent, Democrats at fought. Yes, they had to spend a lot of money, but they maintained those seats because Mitch McConnell failed, not because Donald Trump failed. What I don't and I also think we need a new leader of the R and C, I'd love to see. Someone like a Lee's Eldon come in, who knows how to identify issues who knows how to talk to people and who knows how to fight. Those would be great changes to the Republican Party. I am disappointed and I do hear what you're saying and I don't necessarily disagree because gosh, the future we have no guarantees. So if you tell Ron DeSantis, hey, you can run in four years. You can run again in 2028. These are things that we can't guarantee someone, but I do think if they broke her to deal and Trump gets in and in four years or after Ron DeSantis is done as governor of Florida, he gets appointed as Secretary of State or some high level position within the Trump administration, he's beautifully appointed to run his own very successful race right now. Trump knows where all the bodies are buried and he's already started the work. It's up to America to let him finish that.
Jennifer Horn and Carl Jackson Discuss the GOP's Prospects
"Right now is a guy who knows Florida knows Donald Trump knows we're on desantis Carl Jackson is here host of the Carl Jackson show heard in Orlando Florida and of course you hear him all the time on Salem radio, one of our best colleagues and host you can follow him at Carl Jackson show on Twitter and Carl, thanks for being with us today on America first. Thank you, Dan. I appreciate you having me on. And now this is going to be an interesting one because we know Donald Trump is jumping in and we hear. Chris Christie talking about the independence that he's going to turn off and that perhaps maybe someone like Iran desantis is better suited. I would contend Carl that there aren't a lot of moderates independent. I almost feel like they're kind of like the unicorn. Everybody is so divided. Everybody has such strong opinions right now. And I believe what happened to our friendly older, it doesn't matter who you are. If you have a Republican buy your name, they're going to come after you. I don't know if you're Trump or just say it to whoever you are. They're coming for you. Yeah, honestly, this is why Jen, when we get in power, the Republican Party, we need to willpower. I mean, it's just simple as that, listen, I don't think that Trump is a liability to the GOP, that's a bunch of nonsense. I defer a little bit in where I don't, I didn't like the tag to desantis. I think this is the time to be united and not divided unless they do get into a primary. But I'll say this. I want Trump to be the next president. And I'll tell you, I'll tell you why. Foreign policy is that no one's talking about that. But for God's sakes, we're damn near and World War three, Trump was able to curtail Xi Jinping, the guy in North Korea, I don't know why his name escapes me right now. Kim Jong-un. Thank you. Kim Jong-un, the world has gone to hell in a handbasket without him in office. He did things that were, he was very good when it comes to when it comes to foreign policy. I
‘Lion King’ Sign-Language Interpreter Says He Was Fired Over Race
"There is a Supreme Court ruling back in 1976 that white people could sue under a statute that was that was passed in a law back during the reconstruction era post Civil War. Now that law was intended to protect former slaves, but they believe that this law could also benefit white people who are now being fired for the color of their skin. Mister WAN told the New York Post, hey, this is wrong. This is discrimination. He said, if you insert a different color, if you insert a different race it is wrong, you are not allowed to fire somebody because of that reason. So according to the emails, and by the way, Disney is not commenting on any of this, but according to the email, they said only black sign language interpreters were going to be allowed. That's it. I mean, look, if that's the new rule, on Broadway, that you can only that an actor can an actor has to be the skin color of the character he is portraying, then all I can say is the folks at Hamilton have a great big problem on their hands. I mean, the whole shtick of Hamilton is, you got a bunch of people of color playing our founding fathers, and I hate to break it to you, ladies and gentlemen. But the founding fathers were a bunch of lily white honkies. I'm just saying. Well, there you go. Good luck to you, mister Wayne, and I hope you sue the living daylights out of them. All right,
WaPo: Rep. Kevin McCarthy Sabotaged Other Republican Campaigns
"Washington Post yesterday published a shocking story about how Kevin McCarthy has been working behind the scenes for several years now to sabotage the campaigns of conservative candidates. And by conservative candidates, I mean members of the House freedom caucus. We're going to be speaking to one of those members a little bit later on Ralph Norman from South Carolina. The story goes into great detail about how even this election cycle, Kevin McCarthy was funneling money to outside groups and the whole point of this was to sabotage the campaigns of conservatives. It's unbelievable. Folks, we've been telling you for a long time now that there is a Civil War underway in the Republican Party. It's been happening in the shadows. It's been happening behind the scenes, but it's been going on and it's been very effective. Not only had these conservatives been fighting the Democrats in many cases, these candidates have also been fighting their own party and they've had no idea. It is a covert operation. Now, McCarthy is not commenting on any of this, but apparently the RNC is involved in some capacity as well. It's a pretty ugly stuff. And now you're going to see Republicans rising up and calling out Donald Trump and I want you to understand something. When you look at these so called conservatives that are coming out and attacking Donald Trump. You need to go back and see if they were if they were on the Trump train to begin with, or if they have just been a silent or quiet never trumper. Because every single one of the ones I've looked at have been never trumpers. So not much has really changed here. That's what I'm getting at.
Dinesh and Debbie Discuss Michigan's Prop 3
"The results of the midterm election were, I would say only a disaster in the sense that we should have done so much better. Biden's policies have horrific effects. People a directly experienced those effects, so it should have been a complete wipeout. It's almost like one of those early battles of the Civil War where Lincoln would say in a sense, you know, why do we finish off the confederacy? Well, yeah, we were able to hold our own yahweh were able to advance a few yards or even a few miles, but we're not even close to taking Atlanta. Why is that? We have a much bigger army. We have much greater resources. And so we need to ask some tough questions of our own side as we think about what happened this week. Debbie joins me and Debbie has some interesting thoughts about two issues that have that we haven't paid a lot of attention to in part because we have strong convictions about them were kind of dug in on them, but they can be they can pose certain election problems for us. Honey, start by telling people about we were in Michigan for an event I did with Grand Rapids right to life was a tremendous great event 1300 people, but we learned a lot about this proposal three, which was coming up on the ballot, and in fact has now been voted upon, talk a little bit about proposal three, what it does, but also kind of the deceptive way that it's framed so that people are, they don't really know what it does. Right, so prop three basically gives Michigan Michigan women. The right to have an abortion at any time in their pregnancy, including 9 months. They also have, if it's a teen pregnancy, they do not need parental consent to have the abortion. So this is, you know, this is horrible. This is something that is a strike against the right to life. But they framed it very, they were very sneaky in the way that they used the language and the proposal. For example, they said that this proposal proposal three was the constitutional right to reproductive freedom. So when you say that, you are in essence saying, listen, the right to your reproductive freedom only belongs to you and your doctor, but it's between you and your doctor. The government has no right to tell you what when you can have an abortion when you can get contraception, et cetera, et cetera.
Conservatives Accuse DeSantis of Being an Establishment Republican
"Until yesterday when Trump labeled him Ron de saint ammonias. The America first, the America first crowd, was singing Ron DeSantis's praises. They were saying, oh, this is a great man. He stood up to Doctor Fauci. He reopened our businesses. He declared war on these radical school boards. He stood up for moms and dads. He stood up against the woke businesses like Disney World. He even went so far as to declare war on the gender mutilation surgeries for juveniles. Ron DeSantis is a younger version of Donald Trump. That's what they were saying, but now, and it's just amazing to see how all of this how all of this changes so quickly. On a dime, now those very same people are saying that Ron DeSantis is really a closet establishment Republican because he's got the support of the backing of people like the Jeb Bush. Now, folks, you can't have it both ways here. Here's my take on it. I think Trump made a mistake. And Trump, yes, president Trump can make a mistake. And I think that at this moment, here's what needs to happen. I get it. They may hate each other. I don't know. Trump says they're good friends. I don't know. I do not know, but one thing is clear. We got to knock off the nonsense. This is dividing the party and we can not have the party divided. Now I will say this. There is a Republican Civil War coming. And it will be ugly and we're going to get into all of that probably starting later this week, but right now, right now folks, we got to focus.
Bob Cesca on the Nefarious Reason Behind the GOPs Polling Frenzy
"Mean, if you heard the show yesterday, we violated the bob sesso, don't get happy. We got happy. I mean, we did, but you know what? You also remind us on Twitter. You said I love how they're measuring the drapes, depressing their own turnout, Democrats aren't making the same mistake this year. So yes, whatever drives turn out is what I'm for because you're right. They're like way overconfident. Yeah, and that's why I felt okay with being optimistic about the midterms because I feel as though forgive the movie reference on this, but I feel as though the Democrats have the eye of the Tiger that were the scrappy underdogs in this. Weirdly, I mean, we control House of Representatives in The White House and, you know, half of the Senate, but at the same time, we understand the stakes of this. Meanwhile, Ted Cruz and the Republicans are going around acting as though they've already won, which is one stupid and will depress their own turnout. But two is actually setting them up for something more nefarious, which is what they will inevitably do. If the Democrats over perform as they appear to be doing so far in the early votes and that ends up being the ultimate result and the Democrats keep Congress, then the Republicans are going to say, oh, but the polls before said something different and now they want so all the election is rigged so now we're going to have a Civil War. That's why they're commissioning so many polls as we talked about yesterday that are skewing the average. So right, they can go rigged fake news, et cetera.
Florida Moves to Ban Puberty Blockers
"On the other hand, he has a story for you, Florida moves to ban puberty blockers and transgender surgery for minors. The Florida board of medicine and state board of osteopathic medicine have approved the plan to ban puberty blockers and sex reassignment surgery as treatments for transgender miners in the state. Well, we truly have as we have two different countries as much as they did. In the time of the Civil War. The deficient was, of course. On slavery. Today's division is everything except slavery. Everybody agrees slavery is evil. That's how different it is.
Anthony Fauci Was Never Elected...
"Fauci was never elected, okay? So no one ever went to a ballot box. And so you know I want to give him a bunch of power. He was largely unknown up until the virus, and he had unlimited amounts of power. I make the argument that Anthony Fauci and it's a great learning lesson. Has anyone ever had as much power as Anthony Fauci had for 18 months in American history? And okay, well then you could ask me who maybe not, that's fine. Maybe you're agreeing with me or not. I don't know. But the power to lock down your kids from going to school, the power to literally control the breathing of an entire generation. The power to kick people out of a military for not that of the military for not taking mRNA, gene altering technology. That's an incredible amount of power. And even if a president has had that kind of power, let's say Abraham Lincoln had that power. At least he was voted to office, at least someone said I want you to be in a position of authority and in some ways Anthony Fauci became the sovereign and Anthony Fauci became a lot more powerful and important than the American people. So then you say, how on earth do we restrain that? Well, this is why we need a complete and total constitutional reset in our country right now. Whereas that whatever the new Congress is, whoever takes power, there needs to be a mass check and balance campaign. And I think a purge of this administrative state in the fourth branch of government. And this is something I really want to kind of, whether you live in Missouri or Kansas, both Missouri and Kansas, I think, have been abused by the federal government for far too long. You have allowed the federal government to misrepresent you for so long. There is so much power in the states and never before, probably since the American Civil War hasn't been this bad,
Abraham Lincoln Was Very Torn by the Carnage of the Civil War
"Was very torn by the carnage that was going on in the United States during this time. It racked him, constantly, is the death that was going on and frankly, he felt for the war itself on both sides that was very felt personal. But he was very committed to making sure that the union would prevail. That the United States would again be the United States. And he may really something that was really a concept that came out of this is that America in America was both a place and a concept and I've heard this express it was a physical location and an idea. When you think of America, it is, it is not just the location that we're in, but it is a concept of freedom and the individuals. And we the people and there's so much that goes into that that can't be related to a single place, a single time. And Lincoln was one who believed that you saw it in this speech. And let's break that down because I think it's so important today. When I see the political infighting, when I say both Republicans and Democrats, going at it, and what is sometimes outside the branding of civil discourse outside the branding of normal debate. We've got to get back into the idea that we can debate issues debate ideas. And at the end of the day, disagree with each other, we might not want to go have dinner with each other, but at the end of the day, you know, realizing that except in the most, this is not an issue of evil and people being inherently evil because they hold these that are different from mine. Now there are certain ideas that I frankly hope that, you know, especially when it comes to life and those kind of things that I do believe that are not proper, but at the same point in time in a course like we have in our United States, this is the kind of discourse that we have. We've got to convince each other of our right ideas. They may be things that we can't understand and they may be evil in our side, but at a certain point in time, we've also got to remember we're a society in which the idea and the concept, the idea of America is that we have these freedoms that come together and mesh into one.
Doug Reflects on the Gettysburg Address
"The Gettysburg address was in November 19th, 1863. If you study the Civil War, the battle of Gettysburg was really a turning point in the war. It was a very bloody battle, many lost, but it was the stretch or the furtherest stretch up of the confederate army into Pennsylvania. And really what hands on that battle was really how far up the southern army would go. Could the Union Army stop them at this point in time, there was, frankly, the southern army was making a lot of headway in through Virginia through the neighborhood to move on into Pennsylvania. We were seeing just the beginnings of the battles on the west. This would be for grant came out of later. But November 19th, 1863, it was a turning point in the war in the victory for the Union Army there was very important in what eventually became the defeat of the confederacy and the defeat of the confederate army. But it took a great deal. There's so much we could go into. I mean, I'm one who enjoys studying battles and history moments. I've also been asking times to do talk about doing a podcast events that changed history, you know, things like what had happened if the battle that pickets charge and all these went differently. It Gettysburg. What if the German Army had decided to not stop at the English Channel had went ahead and had a full blown invasion of England. There's so many historical thoughts. I mean, Japan and not stopping at Pearl Harbor, but continuing on in different ways along the West Coast of the United States. All of these things that didn't happen, but if had, what were they done to change the world? These are the kind of things that are fascinating to talk about to see what the could have been. The Gettysburg battle was one, though, that the way it came out did solidify what would be our union from here to come. So in looking at this speech, it's not a normal space. Number one. In the sense of, you know, today, you know, there's only 270 something words in this speech. You know, 72, 75, depending on which way you count the words. This will be more remarks in today's language. This would be, you know, the very simple remarks given and at an event that, you know, people wasn't expecting a whole lot.
The Enemy of Liberalism Is the Left
"So anyway, on the good news side. And I have reveled in positive feedback ideal with really horrible things every day. The attempt to destroy this country by the left is the greatest attempt to destroy this country since the Civil War. They loathe what we stand for in God we trust E pluribus Unum and liberty, the three values that are on every coin the left despises all of them. These are really lost bad souls, my friend. Liberals do not share the left values, but they vote for them. That is the tragedy of modern America that liberals enable the left. If that didn't happen, if liberals voted their values, there would be no Democrats in office. That's the way it works, whether it's here in Pennsylvania or anywhere else. Liberals have bought the lie that their enemy is the right. The enemy of liberalism is the left.
Is Democracy Now Fascism? Lord Conrad Black Weighs In
"On the right win in 2022 in November next month, to me, democracy looks like it's over in America, fascism is here to stay. And if they lose, we get maybe another insurrection, domestic terrorism, a Civil War God forbid. Maddie Hassan MSNBC with a strange definition of fascism if the Republicans win the election, then fascism has arrived. I guess the majority picking who should be in Congress is Marie Hussain's definition of fascism. I know somebody who will have a very different one. Presidential historian former media mogul, financier, judicial reform advocate, and just an all around good friend of the show, lord Conrad black, welcome back to America first. Thanks, Sebastian. I'm delighted to come back and listen to such rubbish. I mean, what that man said. I mean, this is the representative of one of the leading networks. Yes. Democracy is fascism. Now, in fact, fascism as those of you who are listening to are interested are aware was in fact a bunch of street bullies wearing black shirts bearing symbolically the faces as symbol of the authority of the Roman Republic, the Caesars and Julius Caesar anyway. And marching upon Rome and installing an authoritarian government, apart from that Mussolini, he was essentially just one of history's more spectacular scoundrels, though an able man in many ways. I made it up as he went along, but he fell under the spell of Hitler and ended up being shot by communists and hung upside down a gas station. That's fascism. With his girlfriend, hung upside down. And how you equate that to the Republicans winning an election, which happened when Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt and Dwight Eisenhower and Ronald Reagan, for example, were elected. How you equate that to the Republicans winning an election. I think that's something of psychiatrists and people who deal with severely deranged people would have to have to survey. But let's
"american civil war" Discussed on WTOP
"One by one outside the African American Civil War memorial, the names of 2000 African American soldiers who helped spread the word in Texas at slavery had ended, were read. We're going to raise that name into the universe. Never to be forgotten again. Frank Smith is the founder of the African American Civil War museum, which hosted the Juneteenth celebration. Among those watching was Ken from D.C.. We wouldn't be here right now. That's all I'm saying. Also, millay Jordan of D.C.. I think the ancestors of those of those soldiers would appreciate it. The event was concluded with a march to Howard University. In northwest Mike Morello, WTO news. 1155 time for money news. This is a Bloomberg money minute. Just in time for the expected surge in summer travel demand, United Airlines is putting more than 50 jets back in service, 15 months after one jet had an engine failure. The FAA grounded that fleet with that particular type of Whitney engine and those are now being brought back into service following the inspections and repairs. Bloomberg senior aviation reporter Justin bachman says this is a big deal for united. That's about 10% of the entire airline C capacity right there. United's mechanics have gone through the jets to be sure they're safe to fly, cabin crews have done their jobs, but the planes are looking a little shabby after being parked in the desert for more than a year and with labor shortages and supply chain issues, airline paint shops have waiting lists as long as 8 weeks. There are pictures floating around on Twitter. It's not a safety issue at all for the airplane. It's just really about the way it looks and it's not great for United's brand. From the Bloomberg newsroom, I'm Jeff Bellinger on WTO. And stay here on WTO up ahead will bring you the latest on a 15 year old who lost his life yesterday after the motella event in D.C. also ahead Russia says two Americans captured while fighting in Ukraine could be sentenced to death and they're not covered by Geneva conventions.

"Still hope to get a vote on the bill before the July 4th break. On Capitol Hill, Mitchell Miller WTO news. Knew the afternoon, the 15 year old boy who was shot and killed at a Juneteenth celebration in northwest D.C. last evening is Chase pool of northwest. D.C. police provided that information to WTO just last hour. Three other people, including a police officer, were hurt at the event at 14th and U streets. Police say the gathering was being held without a permit. Four 33, there is deep concern that the financial and military backing that the west and the Ukraine's other allies are providing could eventually run out and leave Ukraine in a really vulnerable situation as it tries to fight off Russia's attacks. National security correspondent JJ green joins us live to break down what the problem is, JJ, ever wonder how all that Dara Pasco, one of Vladimir Putin's closest allies who was sanctioned in connection with the 2016 election meddling problem managed to buy a luxury home in D.C. and New York and other places around the world. And by the way, he's also been sanctioned as a result of this war. So here's how and why. For decades, leaders in Western countries turned a blind eye to Russia's aggression, and they welcomed dirty money into their political systems, the U.S. included. Russian media was allowed to flood western mines with disinformation. And people close to the Clement were allowed to infiltrate these Western countries. Now, with this war raging, western leaders are trying to fight back. But elections play a key role. Russia I'm told is working very hard to use those people who've established themselves in western political systems to try to get rid of those leaders who oppose Russia.

The real risk to Ukraine sustaining this war effort, reporting live, JJ green, WTO news. Hey JJ, for a while we heard a lot about the Ukrainian refugees, millions of them. What's the latest on that? As of June 16th, there were 4.9 million Ukrainian refugees spread out throughout Europe in 43 countries. The latest or rather the largest group is in Russia, 1.2 million. And that's important because most of them, according to the UN, were kidnapped, and anywhere you go, kidnapping is a crime, something Russia will have to answer for one day. The next largest group is in Poland. 1.16 million, 780,000 in Germany, 370,000 in the Czech Republic, 130,000 in Italy. It's important to understand that this is another weapon that Russia has used in this conflict. Weaponizing people, forcing them from their homes in Ukraine into neighboring countries and intelligence sources say the hope for Russia is that this will overwhelm these countries abilities to care for these refugees and impact their ability to provide money and assistance to Ukraine, which is trying to fight off Russia's invasion.

"Attention to The government, the general Millie Stack. There is a lot Tammy Bruce, our friend Tammy Bruce. Wrote a column in The Washington Times today. And I was surprised he I I got to the back of the column. And guess what? There was a she had. Acknowledged the tweet of mine and I had no idea that was coming. But she turned me says this last week provides us with two shocking examples of how government how the government industrial complex is working against US citizens. And This country's founding principles. She says. Originally her column was going to be out about Uh, Bush 40 threes. What she says is shocking and atrocious comment. In Shanksville, Shanksville, Pennsylvania. On 9 11. His remarks equated the January six capital protesters with mass murdering savage terrorist. His comments alone were disgusting. But even more so, what's where he chose to deliver them on hollowed ground. Shanksville was where Americans of all stripes banded together on an airplane to save the Capitol and the White House from attack. They knew the only way they can stop that horror would be to sacrifice their own lives, and they did. Many of us have you, George W, as well meaning but often wrong. He was a moderate. But his comments on 9 11 disabused me of that notion, says Tammy, his spewing Obvious establishments hateful And dangerous narrative that tens of millions of Americans are the equivalent of Al Qaeda is beyond uh, pale. And she says, Just when you think you can't get much worse, it did. Then we get the Woodward book and I'm paraphrasing some line so I can get to the key points here. And then a. Tammy goes to talk about the two phone calls. That general Millie made. I used to say if true, but they have not denied. These phone calls took place, folks. So now I'm just going to go for it because they pretty much said Yeah, the phone calls took place. In each million. Sure, the Chinese the United States was not preparing to strike. I want to assure you the American government is stable. Everything is going to be okay. And then Millie, Of course, as you know. Told China If we're going to attack I'm going to call you ahead of time. It's not going to be a surprise. No. There are multiple attempts by the swamp to retreat on this reporting. Including the claim that many people knew General Milley was doing it. Except for the commander in chief, of course. Still There is denial that Millie's conversation with the Chinese took place the word treason is thrown around a lot these days. But if you want to know what it looks like This is it. That's what our good friend Tammy Bruce says. The book also implies CIA director Gina Hospital in the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi involved. And and hostel CIA director. That's when we need to talk about in the future shows. And Trump gave her the break that she needed to become The CIA director. Then again. What Jim Comey and the FBI did to Mr Trump and his team just after the 2 16 election was also shocking, illegal and unconstitutional, and no one is faced any repercussions. It's almost as if this banana Republic crime boss style of government. Is now the norm. The details about General Millie's actions that presented as though they were a good thing. Many believe General Milley and his associates leaked it specifically thinking he would be nailed as a hero hailed as a hero. She says Mr Bush's remarks on 9 11 2 liable Americans just terrorists. And the General Milley revelation confirmed what American people have been worried about the the legitimate Legitimacy. Not just of elections but of the system itself. And then she writes this James Golden AK boasts nearly the former producer of the Rush Limbaugh's show tweeted about this growing suspicion. Of our government. Quote. Massive distrust in main media outlets and electoral process. Massive distrust. Key military and intelligence leaders. State issued mandates. Eliminate freedoms. Budgets on deficit spending, high taxes, massive welfare. Sounds like a third World Nation question. End quote. Make no mistake, says Tammy. The media and the Swamp will try to gas like you into believing none of this matters. But this is the most dangerous period of time. Aside from the American civil War that we have faced None of this. Could be happening because someone had a bad day. It is a reflection of an internal cancer. That appears now to be disabling the very foundation of the founders. The very foundation the founders established to keep this nation Free. And safe. That is our friend Tammy Bruce. Today.

"What is Labor Day? It's a long weekend to end off the summer. Why Labor day, though, for that we turn to historian Kenneth Davis with CBS is Jill Grass. Well, unofficially, it begins in 18 82 in New York City in appropriately Union Square. That was the year that a group of labor unions early labor unions got together. They wanted to celebrate the strength and spirit of the American worker. They wanted that, uh, celebrate a day off. It was a day of picnics and parades and rallies. But more than just a day off. They were agitating. They wanted to organized They wanted the right to make unions. They also wanted some very fundamental things like an eight hour workday, the end of child labour. These were fundamental issues that labor organized labour was working on in the post Civil war period, and it ran up against the full force of not only American business but also American government. And most of those attempts to organize were put down. Eventually, some of them were put down rather violently. So that's the first idea behind Labour Day it did not become a federal holiday or national holiday until 18 94 when it was signed into law by Grover Cleveland. Some people may get the idea That when that first Labor Day happened, unions were already a big thing. Because New York had, for instance, a union Square, but Union Square had nothing to do with unions. That just happened to be where the union of two major North South Road Broadway and the Bloomingdale Road came together. So what was work like back in the 18 eighties, when you have that first, albeit local Labor Day, labor in the late 19th century really meant hard, dangerous duty. We're talking about men, women and Children working in the factories, minds the coal mines in particular. Doing dirty, hard work for very low wages. Of course, there were no benefits. There were no vacations. There were no sick days. There was no medical insurance. There was no unemployment insurance. So this was a pretty grim picture of what Labour in America meant in the late 19th century. There was a story that made a big impression with a lot of people. Jane Adams of Hull House talking about a child, I think in Chicago, where she was based, a little child dying while working, ironically, at a candy factory. That's right. There were stories of Children actually having to walk on catwalks above the vats, the candy vats and falling into them and dying. And she Jane Adams, I think also tells a story that these young girls in many cases certainly didn't want to be given any candy at Christmas time when they went back to the the settlement houses where, uh, Jean Adams tried to give them a decent life and provide education. So you know, this is, uh, part of the American story. We often leave out over the textbooks. When we talk about a history of pride and patriotism, and it's really important story. Every advantage that labour was able to gain for the working American came a tremendous cost. There was a second civil war in in effect in America. After the American Civil War ended in 18 65. And that was the war between workers trying to organize and the business is allied with governments, both local and national preventing that organization. It was a terrible time and you know there's there's no question that this country was built on the backs of of labor and very, very slowly, it became union labor. Uh, one other point, I'd like to say since I met ment mentioned 18 65 and the Civil war back in 18 61. President Lincoln gave his first, uh, address to Congress. And he said at the time that labor is the superior to capital. That was a pretty radical thing for him to say back then. But it's interesting to see that Lincoln expressed that idea and part of it was he was talking about slave labor. And so many of what the the advantages workers enjoy today, and we take them for granted really came at the tremendous cost in blood, sweat and tears. This wasn't a straight line, though. In terms of rights or benefits for workers, there would be confrontations like the market Square riots in Chicago. Where very often sympathy would turn back towards the company. So this was this. There was a lot of up and down in the history of this, As you probably know. Gil..

"We played a role in getting the word out against critical race theory early and often credits. Christopher rufo credit to james lindsay credits. Helen pluck rose. Credit to candace owens and credit to our amazing team here on the charlie kirk show and turning point. Usa we have dedicated dozens of hours of programming to opposing critical race theory. Then credit to you for all of you right now. Maybe you're driving and beautiful scottsdale arizona where it's one hundred and twenty two degrees already at nine thirty seven in the morning and maybe you just told your friends about how eva critical race theory is good for you because the polling is showing this a winning issue not just a little bit but a lot in fact only twenty. Five percent of the country has a very favourable view of critical race theory. Twenty five percent and so let's go through why it is so negative. Let's go through why the public approval is where it is. And i also want to play you. Some of the reaction from some of the pundits that think that critical race theory is just the greatest thing ever so here are eight characteristics of critical race theory written by my friend james lindsay jose frequent guest on this program and our podcast number. One critical race theory believes that racism is present in every aspect of life every relationship and every interaction and therefore has its advocates. Look for it everywhere. Now before i go any further for for those of you that think this is a fringe idea that has still not hit your hometown. It probably has just look for its in our military too. By the way our united states military they were acquiring our military members to read how to be an anti-racist if you want to become a general in the united states military you have to read how to become an anti-racist by robin de angela. So here are the eighth things. And maybe you're driving anita pullover and write these down this episode or this conversation will live in perpetuity on the charlie kirk. Show podcast feet again. Racism is present everywhere every aspect of life every relationship every interaction and therefore it's advocates have to look for it everywhere here that those of you in fargo north dakota even though you might live very quiet and decent and peaceable lives everything you do if you're white person is inherently racist number. Two critical race theory believes on interest. Convergence of the known as intersection -ality quote white people only give black people opportunities and freedoms when it is also in their own interest. Therefore don't trust any attempt to make racism better by white people so for example the critical race theorists they think that the four hundred thousand three find the exact number three thousand white people that died in the american civil war to free the slaves. That was them being very selfish. The critical race theorists think that the white people that fought for the union cause that died for something greater than themselves. They were quote in interest convergence because critical three hundred and sixty thousand two hundred twenty two. That's not too bad. That i pulled it from my hat right there. The three hundred sixty thousand two hundred and twenty two people that died for the union cause in the american civil war they were only acting in their own interest. Therefore don't trust any attempt to make racism better number three critical race theory believes and they are firm about this that any free society is the problem and they want to dismantle them and replace them with something it's advocates control. This is against free societies free markets private property discourse and dialogue. We'll get to that. In a second critical race theory only treats race issues as socially constructed groups so there are no individuals you are not made in the image of god. You're a member of your tribe. You are not your own person with your own consciousness. Dreams ambition be held accountable with your own development of your character. No you are a member of how you look the jersey that you wear in. The game of critical race theory is your skin color. And that's what matters not whether or not you have developed soul a spirit that needs to be saved by our lord and savior or a character that needs to be improved upon. Know what matters is how you look see critical race theory. What is being taught to so many children across the country cares about things you cannot change what has made america and the west different and exceptional is. We always focused on things. You can change. A moral country tries to put a focus on things. You can better and develop and improve not on things you cannot improve number five believed science reason evidence are white and there are only used as a way of knowing that storytelling and lived experiences are a black alternative which hurt everyone especially black people. You hear that science reason and evidence science and the scientific method is not any sort of skin color or any sort of racial identity. We know this. I would love the critical race theorists to explain. George washington carver. That's right george. Washington carver a black scientist. One of the greatest men ever to live ida peanut butter and jelly sandwich the other day and it was really good. I have not had one in so long. And i have to say we've all been sold. A packet of lies the fact that peanut butter and jelly is not part of our steady diet as human. I'm i'm telling you it's a very. It's a very serious thing. My wife erica. Had to hear him this whole speech about how much i think. I think he's just been deceived anyway. George washington carver a black man. Who was a scientist. I'd love to have them to figure that out. But they think that science and reason are white and they want to abolish science reason which is exactly why the bill and melinda gates foundation. They are funding organizations. That teach black kids that two plus two equals five. Nothing is objective in the eyes of the critical race. Theorists critical race theorists also reject all possible alternatives like color blindness as forms of racism. Making itself the only allowable game in town this potala -tarian in nature. They will destroy you if you dare disagree with them. Critical race theory also believes that anyone who disagree with them must do for for racist and white supremacist reasons. Even if those people are black which is also to tell terry and finally critical race theory cannot be satisfied so it becomes a kind of activist black hole that threatens to destroy everything is introduced to that is the most important one that i want a segue into critical race. Theory cannot ever be satisfied. Critical race theory has an insatiable appetite almost like a parasitic virus to deconstruct. What if i told you that. It is.

"There's no way to benevolently own another person's body, another person's life, another person's future. That phrase benevolent slaveholder is straight up, lost cause language. So here's a term we need to understand lost costs. Confederates who lost the war devised this idea of the lost cause. It's a whole false interpretation of history designed to justify their defeat. To absolve themselves of any guilt for starting the war and to vindicate their prewar way of life. And this story is still being told at Beauvois. The larger goal of these once powerful men was to end the process that was reordering Southern Society. Reconstruction. They wanted to redeem their status, their power and their control over black lives and labour.

Christie Coleman is a long time administrator of historic sites. She was the CEO of the American Civil War Museum in Richmond, Virginia. When I spoke to her She's an African American woman and the center she ran tells the story of the civil War that's complicated, at times ugly. It includes the perspectives of African Americans free and enslaved. And of union and Confederate soldiers. In other words, the full story. It's almost laughable.

This is the same woman that you've had whipped several times because she has run away on her own long before the war. There was just this cognitive dissonance related to it. That is really stunning.

"This podcast was inspired by mike. Who sent me an email. Asking are true mysteries of the pacific northwest. Nothing more than urban legends inspired by a book. I checked out from the rogue valley metaphysical library and trying to answer that question. The book was written by an authority. Who shall remain nameless. The book contains some events that are no more than a figment of someone or an urban legend. Like the dog that ate a tiny cell foam and every time someone called stomach would rain. Some were started by celebrities like mickey rooney claiming that he had influence walt disney to call his cartoon mouse mickey mouse. Then there's urban legend about elvis presley giving a harley davidson motorcycle to actor james dean. Well sorry. none of these happened before. I reveal my favorite urban legends. I need to explain how i separate real and true from something invented by a person with an ulterior motive or an urban legend occasionally. I do find a witness or participant to an event that can't be explained away and are willing to talk about it but that's the exception not the rule. Most people are reluctant. Admit that they saw ghost or heard strange laughter when they were home alone for fear of being ridiculed. When event is brought to my attention or intrigued by a story on the internet my search for sources begins. I'll start with the photograph of a pterodactyl that appeared on the internet that allegedly dates back to the american civil war in eighteen. Sixty four courting to the story behind the mystery. Image giant flying creature was shot down by soldiers around eighteen sixty four. near the city of vicksburg. The story says it's soldier said the creature was like some kind of unknown bird monster in a surprising. Twist of the story. A second photograph appeared on the internet. That showed a similar scene. A pterodactyl surrounded by men in front of a barn. Now the people. I talked to when i contacted. Authorities said several newspapers in virginia said that one photograph in front of the barn was fake. Now if you drop me. A line kit k. chrome g mail dot com. I'll send you a copy of the two photographs. You can decide for yourself in my research. I found that the photograph of the pterodactyl matched one. That was seen by somebody in eugene oregon just a few years ago about twenty eleven

"What made you want to apply to a job in a crematory in the first place. That's where we first meet you. I was living in san francisco. I graduated from the university of chicago with a degree in medieval studies with a thesis on the late medieval witchcraft. Trials and i had studied mostly medieval death. But i wanted to know what death actually looked like in the real in modern america. And i got the job at the crematory and i really thought that this was going to be a one year thing the fact that i had basically gone my entire life without ever even touching a dead body meant that i had a very uncomfortable relationship being in presence of a dead body but within my first couple of days at the crematory. I was shaving. A dead man. I was putting clothes on a dead man. I was washing the hair of a dead man. And then i was pushing him into the cremation machine. The blast furnace flames. Came down the fourteen. Fifteen hundred degree heat came down and i pulled out his bones and i had been with this man who was almost this ritualistic thing where i was with this man through all these profound final moments of his existence on the planet and the thing that i came to is other people should be doing this. Not just me. This man's family should have had the opportunity to be with the body. The way that i was through this whole process and that kind of became the basis of my advocacy. So why did you even decide to study medieval history. I thought i wanted to be a first amendment lawyer for constitutional lawyer. And then i got to college and i was like. I don't know that any of this works for me. And i just kind of kept searching for what i was interested in intel. I found the very small medieval history department and fell in love with it. What i was trying to do with studying the witch trials is very similar to what i was trying to do in studying death and working at a crematory is how can we take these things that people are afraid of and turn it into something that they feel safe to engage with and learn about and experience. It's because i definitely thought about the witch trials and crematories as similar in a different way in the sense of bodies being burned. Yeah there's that very thing as well and you know like if you wanna talk about psychology. It's possible that. I just spent two years researching the death of women being burned and then i went to agree matori and literally burned some people. So that's my very specific life from researching burning to the burning herself. It's quite a career jump and it made quite the impression here's doty reading from smoke gets in your eyes remembering some of her moments on the job. The first time i peeked in on a cremating body felt outrageously transgressive even though it was required by west winds protocol no matter how many heavy metal album covers. You've seen how many horon bosh prints of the tortures of hell or even the scene in indiana jones where the nazis face melts off. You cannot be prepared. To view a body being cremated seeing a flaming human skull is intense beyond your wildest flights of imagination. When the body goes into the retort the first thing to burn is it's cardboard box or alternative container as it's called on the funeral bill. The box immediately melts into flames leaving the body defenseless against the inferno. Then the organic material burns away and complete change overtakes. The body almost eighty percent of the human body is water which evaporates with little trouble. The flames then go to work on the soft tissues charring the whole body to a crispy black burning these parts. The ones that visually identify you takes the bulk of the time. But don't he got more from the experience than just a paycheck and a tour through the physics of body. Burning one thing. I will say in favor of dead bodies is that they are incredibly profound just by sitting there doing nothing. They are almost transcendent because they are such a profound reminder that we too will someday die and as a medieval list. That's what you learn about the art of the late medieval macabre. It's dancing skeletons and bodies that are there to remind people. Hey just like me. Someday you're going to be decomposing someday. You're going to be a skeleton. So when you're twenty two year old american and all of a sudden you have an opportunity to see dead bodies in the literal flesh every day. That's a wonderful unity. If i was an eight year old in eighteen forty two i would have seen dozens of corpses and by the time that i was an adult because not only did the family take care of their own dead but there was a higher death rate at the time so i would have been very familiar with dead bodies but at a certain point at the turn of the twentieth century the funeral industry became an industry. It became a capitalist system it became a quote unquote professional system and in that professional system. You had to hand your body over to a professional person to take care of the body to embalm the body to chemically prepare the body and then essentially sell the body as a product back to you and that's a very recent in human history people even now who say i'm really uncomfortable going to a funeral. The dead body in the casket didn't really look like grandma or grandpa was wearing lipstick and kind of freaked me out. It's okay if you feel that way because it is radically different than how death looked at any other time in human history. What prompted the change wide. We suddenly have something like that where we didn't need it in the eighteen hundreds or early nineteen hundreds. I guess you could start a lot of it with the american civil war because you had all of these soldiers that went to fight. They died in the south and it was so important for the northern families to be able to see the dead body that they were willing to do anything to get the bodies of their husbands and their sons back to them so this new class of worker called an embalmer would follow the civil war battles from battle to battle almost like an ambulance chaser and set up their embalming tents. And say hey grieving parents if you want me to disembowel your son and stuff him with sawdust and so i'm up. So the body can be transported safely without bad smells or decomposition. I'm going to do that for you. And that was actually a great service for the period after the civil war things should have gone back to normal but those same men said. We're gonna make embalming a thing. We're going to travel the country we're going to convince people that the corpses somehow dangerous if you don't use these chemicals or preservation sanitation appearance. You need professional intervention with your dead bodies and it worked real well because nowadays most people don't even know that they have the power themselves to just take care of the dead in your own home if you want. You don't.
"american civil war" Discussed on KGO 810
"A kind of run up to the Inauguration. Got breakfast. You just heard fresh face Producer Albert, The fresh faced young guy who puts this show together is here is well and Chris is back on the board. I love Tuesdays, and I think I look forward to this Tuesday, more than even many Tuesdays that we've spoken with this guy in the past because of everything that's happened in Washington. And because the crossroads I think that this country sort of finds itself that is, uh Is a disturbing one. And then of course, he's written a column on just this thing. He's the Pulitzer Prize winner, four time best selling author and co founder of DC report dot or g'kar. David Cay Johnston. Welcome, David. Hi. Well, hello, Mark. You have written the column that I was dying to read. I mean, honestly, I mean, it folds. So many of the issues that we're dealing in into this into this one column It's it's called. We're fighting the second American Civil War and I want to ask you about about before I get right into because it's a really heavy top against so very important. I want to put aside the fact and mentioned many of you have asked me to ask David about pardons and pardons in the future and the fact that many the pardons aren't listed publicly. We will get to that. But first I want to get into this column used Your column by saying the second American Civil War is here. Yep, and well, the outcome of it is Certain we will defeat these people. The damage that may be done to our liberties and to our whole notion of who we are as a people can be enormous. Um And one of the things that we need to recognize. I didn't go into it. MATT COLUMN because they wanted to stick on the point, but you're more context here is, you know, everywhere you look people who are denouncing what's happening the election in one way or another keep tying back to the Kremlin. Parlor. We say whatever you want social media websites that Was shut down because it violated the terms of service of its host Amazon. Uh, ghouls also hosting part of it has been put back up with help from a Russian company. There's a lot of questions about whether the mysterious Cuban on with this crazy theory that Joe Biden and the other leading Democrats are baby raping cannibals on me Crazy is that is whether that's actually a Russian military disinformation campaign. But we have now seen the head of one branch of the government. Donald Trump. Launch an attack on another Never happened in American history, and it's come after he has spent more than four years denouncing the judiciary, except when judges uphold what he wants. He doesn't believe in an independent judiciary. Doesn't understand and independent judiciary and As for his own branch of the government. Running down the public health agencies are national intelligence, our military leadership. Well, saying that he trusts not them. But Vladimir Putin. Yeah, that's interesting. The Russian connection. You're saying that that that's in service of Russia either wittingly or unwittingly Absolutely. And remember that Vladimir Putin's stated position is that democracy is a joke, and he wants to get rid of democracy is everywhere in the world and the way you do that is by sowing distrust of Democratic institutions. So right after the election in November on Lee about the polls showed about 3% of Republicans, just a tiny number of them didn't believe that Joe Biden want The latest polls by a whole bunch of organizations. They're showing that roughly two thirds of Republicans think that Donald Trump really won the election. This is madness. There is no evidence of this 64 court cases and they didn't provide a single example of anything that could overturn the election. Yes, we have found a couple of cases of people voting when they shouldn't have Notably some Republicans. Who voted dead people or voted more than once, but nothing that would change the outcome of an election where there's a more than seven million vote margin. For Joe Biden. And yet people believe this stuff and they're telling pollsters they believe this stuff, and now we have this attack from our government. The rifle, rifling the Senate and the house. I mean, people should be that's what people should be outraged about, and that's an act of civil war. There's no question that that's right. That's why I love that. You know that your column got right into it. And, you know, starts with that thesis. You know that this civil war is on it's worth noting David, don't you think that there's not great approval for having stormed the capital? You know, that didn't get in most polls. I think that pulls less than 20%. I mean, the fact that it pulls even close to 20% is astounding. But still what you're saying is exactly right. If you if the Quinnipiac poll that I saw how did it say 23% people believing that Republicans that is believing that 73% that there was widespread voter fraud. So even if they don't approve of the storming of the capital, they deny the new leadership of America. Yeah, absolutely. I mean, this is completely in Koide. And one of the points I make in the column is that now this is a less true than when the column went up on Friday. Because a lot of journalists read D C report. But as of last Friday, I pointed out that no major news organization had called this what it is a second civil war, and the reason is nobody announced it. Nobody came out and said This is the second civil war. And unfortunately one of the problems with our major news organizations. Is this excessive reliance on official announcements rather than using your own repertory ALS authority. Since then, there have now been a number of news organizations that have used this this phrase. Um, on Lee one that I can think of crediting us. But but nonetheless, it has begun to sink into some people that even if if this is a short war And we know the outcome of will be. It's still this is this is what a civil war is. The president, United States tried to overthrow the government. He failed the people within failed, But look at the damage that here we have two dead police officers and four other dead people. We have somebody who stole Nancy Pelosi's laptop and, according to an FBI affidavit, was trying to sell it to the Russian intelligence service. Now I was, uh, mentioning earlier at the beginning of the show, You know, there's a plea for pardons from this group, many of whom you've just mentioned her, a few of whom you just mentioned, but you know, there's the real estate agent that flew down there in the private jet. And there's a ex Navy seal. I mean, it's a cross section of America. They want pardons now for this what should happen to them?.
