"It doesn't feel right. So if the ultimate goal for everyone who gets in the podcasting is to make a living out of it, stop. Well, that's true. You probably won't. That's right. I've been doing this for over 40 years, not podcasting, but broadcasting. It's not for everybody. It's the same thing when blog started and Andrew Sullivan made a $1 million. And everyone was like, where's my blog money? It's just not going to happen. Find the find the value in something else. Find the value in the connections you make. The people that will respond and have friendships, these types of things, that's the reward. We've got to look at this from and I'm a capitalist and the world is changing very rapidly around us. And we're going to wake up and there's going to be a lot of things missing a lot of products are going to be missing and we're like, maybe diapers will be one. It would be prime. And we're going to have to learn how to wash cloth diapers again. The world is some pieces of other crumbling. And the idea that it's all just about the money. I don't even know if you want dollars at this point. I don't know if I want to get paid in dollars. So let's make sure that we always remember podcasting is not just a money making scheme. Podcasting is a communications mechanism that you can do almost anything you want with, and there's a lot of rails that have been put in place that say attach here and slide down. And that's what it is. It's the slide down, full of disappointment. Because the focus is on growing the audience, you know, the focus. I think it should be on maybe one day when I'm 65, 70, we should start doing the seminars or something. And I think we rob and I and you fully get that. I think we do, because we see the numbers. Yeah, no, I remember in the early days when I was writing guys, check for 7 bucks. It cost me more to process the check than it was the value of the money I was sending. And so it was some of that is still going on today, amazingly. The only difference do you remember the story I told you about the curry and the keeper show? Our first show. So I did the numbers. We made $17, our first show in pure Bitcoin payments. And while I think that's actually probably more than a lot of. Podcasts get who start off right out of the gate with advertising because they're probably getting zero because you have zero listeners. It was so not about the 70s. That's right. So about the little messages they send and the feedback, hey, we're going to pop open a wine and listen to the next show. That's what it was about. It doesn't all just have to be about growing the show making the money. And by the way, to round that out, Joe Rogan has an incredible amount of energy because I know he also does gigs around the country on weekends and he's got his. UFC stuff that he does, but to do four interviews a week is and to actually produce four interesting guests a week. It's real work. That's why I went out there..

It's going to be the future. So what i tried to do with. This book is examined trump's impact on the party with an eye toward what that means for what comes next. And through the prism of what the twenty twenty four america look like and so to the extent that there is reporting in the book. And there's there's a decent amount of it that comes from the time of trump's presidency but even before that it's really about how a lot of the republicans that want to run for president twenty twenty four. We're preparing to run for president long before trump left office and at the same time taking a look at how trump's rise as a republican figure and then president impacted in changed a lot of the party so that we can try and get a handle on what this next generation of.

"Is he'll just weeks. Subtly between the first person in a close third even in one paragraph. And i've haven't gotten far enough along to know if the reasons for that. Become clear but it just really is this seamless and effective technique for bringing the readers so close into the characters. Mind that you barely notice it until you're noticing it and it's just fascinating and he randall. Keenan has a year ago but there so many other stories that he's set in this fictional town that i really wanted dive into later so this was the first book of as you've rub. Yes the first book. I've read you consciously starting in chronological order with us. I know. I just heard about this book. I before i had really. I knew that this was an entire world that he built. And i've since gone back to read. You know our obituary in writing about his life. And so that's how i know that these other stories exist but but no this book was kind of just my my entry point into this really fascinating world and writer. John what are you getting. I recently read and reviewed a book. That's probably a little closer to andrews. This which was a novel called loop by mexican writer named brenda lozano and she was also new to me. This was published by a small press. Here and i had i forget where i saw a little bit of it probably on twitter. I see most things these days. Unfortunately and it struck me. Someone posted either a page or or just a phrase from it and she's she's good at aphorisms epigrammatic writing among other things. It's the story of. It's not much of a story. It's it's a lot of interior already. Use andrews word about intimacies about a woman in mexico city who is alone in her apartment waiting for her boyfriend to return from a trip to spain to visit relatives of his mother who had died. I think not immediately before a couple of years before. And she's thinking about her relationship with him. She's thinking about her writing habits. She has this notebook that she calls her ideal notebook. And she's looking to replace it because it's getting full and so the the novel is built on these very small thoughts and compare it in the review to a lot of the fragmented consciousness novels that we've been getting lately from people like geno full and rachel and valerie lewis sally some of her earlier books that were a little more experimental reminded me of this. And it's it's not a book that's going to be for everybody. But i actually think it's an interesting test of just you know just how much people are are willing to push the boundaries. A little bit in terms of the consciousness that they encounter in a novel because there are plenty of hooks to keep you going in my opinion there. Are these little phrases that she has throughout that. I found myself down in the margins. There's one that she writes very early. In the book that she repeats a couple of times later on about the importance of change where she says unlearn yourself is more important than knowing yourself and that. Kind of provocative somewhat counterintuitive but counter. The usual phrasing of things. I love psychological aphoristic writing that and she's very good at bat and within that. I don't wanna make it sound like there aren't bigger concerns in the novel. There are a lot of concerns about relationships and love and mexico and violence. Because i think under the surface of this book erupting just a few times but very powerfully your thoughts about the epidemic of of the murders and violence against women in mexico over the past..

"Joins us now with news in the publishing world haley sandra. Hey pamela so. I have good news. This week. There are earnings reports coming out. That suggest that this really sustained boom that. We're seeing in book. Sales has continued from twenty twenty which was an incredibly lucrative year for publishers. Into twenty twenty one so the latest report from penguin random house which is the largest publisher in the united states showed that their sales were up particularly in the us. It was their parent company bertelsmann which gave the earnings report but they're us sales. Were especially strong up. Twenty two percent over last year for the last quarter. I think they're up to almost one point three billion dollars and that really is in keeping with what we've seen from other big publishing companies so far this year sales are up. It has shut book group. Thir- up at herber collins by twenty percent simon and schuster's sales were up nine percent macmillan's the other large publisher but they don't publicly report their earnings. But when can imagine they're also doing well in you know this matches what we've seen from The association of american publishers. They showed that in the first six months of this year sales were up about eighteen percent over the first half of last year and also book skin and pd. Buckskin is showing that sales are up. So it's a pretty consistent view across the industry. There were some interesting points made in earnings report penguin. Random house pointed out that they'd had a couple of blockbusters. Of course president obama's book amanda gorman's poetry collection. Those were big sellers but they also noted that the company continued quote to benefit from an accelerated to shift to online retail channels. So that's kind of interesting. I think again as we've seen publishers doing extremely while end print book sales doing well. They're still this question of how're bookstores. Doing and some of them are still struggling. The pandemic has dragged on and it seemed to recede some points and things opened up. But now we're in a whole new phase of it so people aren't shopping in person as much we've seen some plans for big fall. Bookstores from authors get canceled. There's probably going to be more cancelled literary festival so things that used to drive foot. Traffic into bookstores are still not really coming back. And so there. Is this concern that this shift to online which really speeded up quite a bit during the pandemic could become permanent. And what does that mean for the health of physical bookstores and also for literate culture. If if you're not able to gather in person and have readings and signings what does that mean..

"What was your relationship with your grandmother like oh. I spent a lot of time with my grandmother when it was. When i was a child would spend a lot of time in the farm with my sisters. She was very funny and very very free and the she was a great storyteller also all the time she would tell my sister and i come. I will tell you a story about. When i was young about the war about this or that and we could spend hours listening to her. She was really fascinating and you know. She was very tool with green. Eyes was very blonde and she would speak arabic with a thursday strong as as genetic sense so everyone was fascinated by what i was so proud to. You know to go with her in the in the when by my friends would meet her because she was so different from the other grandmothers in in morocco with any particular little stories that she told you then as a child that subsequently made their way into this novel. A lot of them for instance. The fact that you might've been father. He has a scar on his video in one day. I asked my grandmother way down from the truth was at my grandfather had very but now surgery but my grandmother. She told me that he fought with a tiger in germany and that he killed the tiger that he was a hero. And i think that for many years may be that was fifteen or sixteen hours absolutely convinced that migrant father killed a tiger in germany. So that's in here. That's in others have research the book and kind of take it away then from that true story of your own grandparents around it out fictional is it. You know as i was telling you. My grandmother was still delo. Not sure that the Told me about her unavowed migrant. Father were true so i was not very interested in the realistic. The view of my my book. I was very interested in the fascination by grandmother could provoke at that time by telling those stories so i think that in bible there is sort of mix between true stories and fiction. But the truth. I don't really care about what is what is true. Not what i care about is about emotion. Yeah what's what is conveyed in.

American soldier in the army and the named amin amion the analysis because he just liberated the village of of nazi then she. She falls in love with him. Deeply passionately n even. Though his stranger his african his muslim she decides to marry him and to go with him to tomorrow coup and the book is follows. Matisyahu follows the the couple in morocco. And of course it will be a lot of decision for for material because he will have to adapt to a new culture new tradition to a very badly accurate society and also to a society. That is very much influenced by colonialism by racism. So it's the story of this Joel family for people who are not familiar with francis colonial history of course morocco was at that time under french control and rule with common for moroccan soldiers to be situated in france during world war. Two yes yes. Of course many people for coming from the from the clooney's as we used to. Save people from senegal at geriatric zhao moral foot of wilson franz but also in italy also in germany. My own grandfather. He was a prisoner in in germany for many years and in france in the nineties when i was when i was young that was a huge scandal. Because people discovered that those engine soldier those ex-soldier they had nothing. Actually they had no recognition financially and also morally by by franz Really frosts weekends it at trump had completely forgotten them. What was the attitude at that time while they were in france fighting against germany. I think that's for the majority of them. They truly believed in the necessity to go to war and to fight against the nazis. I think that we're convinced. By the values of freedom of equality of but at the end of the war. Wedneday came back to their country and the everything went back to like before and people were humiliating. Them and that will victim of racism is is that they were very much disappointed because they felt okay. We went to france. We we fought with all our bravery with everything. A lot of us died and we have no vehicle nation for that. So i think that's a johnny pointed the story of the of the clooney's because at that precise momentum lot of working people. They changed completed attitude to us. Ross so was that relate a pivotal or maybe the most important factors moving morocco. Along to the fight for independence. Yeah i think that the war's change everything. The fact that france was defeated by the nasio. So the fact that she decided to collaborate. I think that's for a lot of malkan bourgeois for the elite so france as a weak country. And maybe they thought why. Should we be dominated by country that is defeated by the nazis and decide to collaborate with it and also i think that the fact that the americans game to tomorrow coup change also the the way people will looking at france for them at that time. America is the real power. The real strong country the religion country. End the america's not golden yellow country. So i think also that detect a us influence on. The.

"Writing is hard to do it and make it interesting is really difficult and and if you start out as a writer thinking well i can't say that and i can't say that if i say that i'm really screwed and i go to avoid that topic you end up writing bladder. You end up writing stuff. That doesn't have any life and my kinsley once said to me. If you think you're going too far you probably haven't gone far enough in your arguments. He was always trying to get you to have the bravery to say things that you actually believe which scared he would say to me. Also when i was a kid that you need to right that now because you won't have the courage few years time to do it because your reputation your your social peers. All of the things that affect a writer will come to bear on you. And you you just human a writer has to be.

So why did you decide to do this to put together. An anthology of these years of writing will mundane form of writing. Is the essay the short apiece and they're dispersed all across the internet in dead tree. Papers that buried in places no one will ever see and when you are an essayist and a columnist and and right like that and a blog. It'll feel so ephemeral. So i thought i wanted to just gather them together in one place just as a collected work because they become accessible over the years and i think a few of the really helpful in understanding the history the last thirty years i set it up chronologically so you can see the pieces and the idea. Is you dip in and out of the book and pick whatever you find interesting but you can also see the arc of history you can see the ark of the gay rights movement you can see the arc of american conservatism with its eventual degeneracy and you can see the war on terror and its after effects and you can see an individual person. Just trying to figure it all out as he goes along with obvious fallibility. I have to pause and a word you use chest than because we still have colonised. We still sas but blogger. Feels like a word that should have gone the way of web log. Are you a sub stocker now. What is that. what is replaced. That how do you think of yourself. I in some ways. The some of the weekly dish is a kind of attempt to merge blogging in real time. Which is what. I was doing for fifteen years around the clock which is a very particular kind of riding in the book. There is a an essay cooled y blog which attempts to understand what blogging did to writing how it changed how it made it more immediate provisional that in the end of course becomes draining exhausting and instant judgment the really instant judgment. I mean ten minutes after something. Happens is incredibly unsatisfying in the long run and so i'm trying to do a mix in other words. The weekly dish has a big post. Big kolomna small a block post. It has some of the features of the old blog. But it's weekly and it's an attempt to summarize the week it has been off analogy. But i do think that blogging is a forum is worth keeping mainly because at its best. It's a way of using the internet to genuine exchange ideas. I think twitter obviously struck a real blow to that kind of blocking but in a way as sub stack reemerges. A lot of the early bloggers are on subject. Now and if there's a some way in the future to make possible you can access many of them some of that very helpful exchange of ideas that is quite reasoned. Moderate in generous in the early days of the blogosphere might return. Of course it all degenerated into twitter. Magnus but i. I don't want to throw that entirely away.

"I mean this is this is this is this is crazy all go vote because this is this is out of this world but i do think that you hit the nail on the head here. There's a deeper point here and we could tie this to what's happening with vaccines people. Don't think anything of their government anymore. They just don't think anything of it and they think that they just wanna kick folks out or they think they could do a better. They don't trust the damn thing that they say. And if we don't take a step back as a nation and actually tried to invest entrust building in a very real way. Which may i add. Times means being bipartisan. At times me and the other side saying the other side's not evil actually trying to get something done while being true to your values. We can't become that again. We're going to be in this constant cycle and it is dangerous. You really is ever get to that point. Can you get to that point when we have now are separate information ecosystems. How do you ever get to a place of trust when the half the people are here. Let's just take it because we have a democratic president. They're hearing something from biden. How are they supposed to ever trust him. When they tune in on one. America or newsmax or fox. Trust either of them. I don't trust you decide. You sound like you trust one side. I trust one more than the other slightly. But i'm proud democrat but before that i'm a proud american so i don't i don't see a problem necessarily with picking side but also not thinking that we are enemies here and you worked. Wh what did you do for for. The defense is the secretary of defense on covert matters. I was a covert coordinator and things along. Those noticed the white house. This is from cnn. Last july twenty nine. I think the white house is frustrated with what it views as alarmist and in some cases flat out misleading news coverage about the delta variant is trust either side and they and they were at new york times wrote the delta variant may be spread by vaccinated people as easily as the unvaccinated and the white house fired back vaccinated. People do not transmit the virus at the same rate as unvaccinated. And if you fail to include that context. You're doing it wrong. So let's obviously government is frustrated with media chair share and i brought this fact up a few months ago. Democrats forty one percent think or thought in the poll. This is a few months ago. So missed may have changed. But forty-one percent thought that the covert hospitalization or the words people who get covered. How many go to the hospital. Forty-one percent of democrats thought it was over fifty percents under five. So there there is. Let's first talk about one elephant in the room there. There's a certain covert elitism that has emerged amongst the far left. I mean you can imagine some of these folks. Covert them wearing a mask in the bathtub. So it's we. We can openly say mass wearing a mask sucks. It's horrible but this is a crisis of hospitalization and hospital capacity and when we are getting to a place where ninety nine percent of icu. Beds are overtaken. You gotta wear a mask and we should be wearing a mask before that. So we're not getting to that place all with the intent though all with the hope the united hope that we don't have to wear them anymore or at our kids should be wearing masks and they until they can get vaccinated wearing them in schools but that is not to say that we should be doing this forever. We should see the light at the end of the tunnel. And we're not talking about that nearly enough but folks just gotta get vaccinated man so not addressing the root problems. I mean you're talking about hospitals absolutely you can't let the hospitals be overrun but the reason why hospitals get overrun is because we run them. Like airlines hundred percent there. Four prophet is just the way an airline can have an empty seat hospitals. Don't want empty beds. So they're always at almost capacity absolutely. That's no way to run a hospital. Four profit.

"I saw a poll that was just done and July of this year that indicated that over 75% of Americans agree that that's unfair forced girls second cheat against boys, So I don't think we will ultimately when, but I think it's unfortunate. That female athletes like Mary Kate are the ones who are left advocating for themselves. This really is something that the entire American public should stand up and say, We're not going to stand for this. Well, that is good news, at least on the polls because I think one thing we've learned in recent decades. Is that these Supreme Court justices who are only supposed to care about the laws of the Constitution, they seem to follow the public opinion polls and they seem like they'll be willing to twist The Constitution to fit with the public opinion polls. I'm curious on that point, Mary Kate What's the sense among your fellow students? Or they supportive of, you know, destroying women's sports and allowing boys to compete against girls? Or do they think that the girls ought to get a fair shake to Yeah, Actually, most of the people I've talked to you are in full support of me and what I'm doing. They know they are. Are very supportive of keeping a fair playing field, so I haven't really talked to that many people that are against it. And you've sent this letter now to thee that I think that occurred. What today or over the past few days. Did you expect to hear a response and Ah, you know what? What form? Might that response? Take for either one of you? What I'll say is what we're asking in the letter that Mary Kate signed on fuel so the incidentally not to boycott the state of Idaho Mary Pump it, I hope have the fairness in Women's Sports Act, which is designed to specifically provide that fair competition to female athletes really common sense law. It basically says. If you've got a girl sports team, only female athletes, they're going to compete on that team. So it was really exciting to see, you know, not just a handful of female athletes that literally hundreds of female athletes, including Olympians, including high Don't mind pioneers like Donaghy, Verona and Sandra Bucha signed onto the letters, the incidental lacing. Don't boycott Idaho don't send a chilling message. Two female office across the country yesterday determines whether the will respond or how it will react to the letter, but we do hope that starts a movement. Ah, not female athletes across the country. But you know Americans across the country standing up in saying, We're not going to stand for this nonsense. We will protect the integrity of women's sports. Well, I share your hope, though I I do have this fear. I mean, this is going back now. Several years when North Carolina past what I felt was a pretty innocuous law. It said that You know, in certain places. If you're a man, you have to use the men's bathroom. And if you're a woman, you have to use the woman's bathroom and you had colleges and universities around the country Boycotting. North Carolina that they would allow their students and their professors to be funded to go to Sudan to go to Saudi Arabia to Goto some pretty oppressive places on Earth, but they wouldn't let them go to North Carolina because they force the men to use the men's room and not the ladies room. So you know the colleges of totally collapsed. It seems in recent days, the sports edifice It has capitulated. Toe woke. Mobs who change their opinion on basic issues is seemingly by the hour. Is there any precedent from the two to give us some cause of hope here, or is this really a blank slate? Are we just waiting with bated breath? Well, I don't know that I would say there's president from the valet yet, but of all entities, they they should surely understand the intrinsic biological defensive and they realize that if you continue down this path, Onda actually views on that message should be athletes what they would be creating. Is mental force in coed sports. If you allow male to infiltrate the women's category, so again, I think this is where you know the majority of the American public recognizes the fundamental fairness at issue here activists and sometimes the way our far out in left field on biological sex and understanding the reality. The difference is between athletic advantages, though we do hope that they will listen to the voice of female athletes over activist and he'll be willing to listen and protection in support. And I hope in the popular culture people understand that there is an inn. Intrinsic contradiction in the ideology is the left is pushing right now, because on the one hand, you know they exalt themselves as feminists. They say they're the true feminists supporting women. And then, on the other hand, they're supporting this transgender ideology. You know, On the one hand, they're the champions of of homosexual rights. And then, on the other hand, they support transgender ideology. But of course, the premise of feminism or homosexual rights movements, for that matter is that there is biological sex. Right? Andrew Sullivan wrote a piece on this. Not so long ago, he said. I'm a gay man. Because I'm a man who is attracted to other men who are and if men and women don't exist, then there is no such thing as my sexual identity. And, of course, feminism, you know it could not exist. If there is no such thing as men and women as immutable sexual categories of men could be women, and there's no such thing. As men or women, for that matter, And so it seems like these things are coming to a head. I hope that the ballet and the courts after that come down on the side of allowing women to have their own sports. It seems like a pretty simple common sense matter to me, But you know, common sense ain't so common these days. Thank you. To both of you Marry Kate Marshall and Christiano Holcomb for coming on. I wish you the best of luck. We've got to take a quick break. I am. Michael knows I'm filling in for the bench.

"You brought me here to do the work that enough folks described in that famous 18 96 statement to make of the columns of The New York Times a forum for the consideration of all questions of public importance is that end to invite intelligent discussion from all shades of opinion. Oaks idea is one of the best I've encountered. I've always comforted myself with the notion the best ideas went out, but ideas cannot win on their own. They need a voice. They need a hearing. Above all, they must be back by people willing to live by them. Sincerely, Barry. Okay. So very like Barry has been. I know Mary Berry has been essentially Verbally threatened on slack channels of the New York Times for years. At this point, people who work at the North Times have attacked her publicly. Again I run in publication. If my writers were attacking each other on openly like in the media or even that channel. If they're Aslak board, where somebody's just getting routinely beaten up, those people would be fired. That's the way that normally these companies work, But that's not the way these companies work anymore. They're run by the woke staffers and by the editors were too cowardly to stand up to the work staffers. I've decided to shut the Overton window in moral certitude that they are right and everybody who disagrees is absolutely wrong. Hey, So Berry is not wrong about her characterization here, and frankly, I don't blame her for leaving. She was under again through this sort of pressure every single day like all the time over at The New York Times because the New York Times has basically just become a college paper. It's just a college paper at this point. Doesn't mean there aren't great Reporters over there are some great reporters over there. It does mean The New York Times is now a shadow of what it once was. Although you have to ask a certain point whether the New York Times learned any of its lessons over the weekend, I watched a movie called Mr Jones. Excellent will be, by the way. I should make it a thing I like it's it's terrific. It's a movie about the revelation of the Ukrainian hella Tamar Motor, which was Stalin basically starving millions of people in Ukraine in order to usurp all of the produce from Ukraine and use it to build. Whatever he wanted. And the mainstream Pulitzer Prize winning reporter from New York Times was getting Walter Durante, who is just a show for the Soviet regime. The movie really takes this on, and there's a fantastic scene where there is a sort of acolyte of Walter Durante, who's talking to the journalist who breaks the story about the Ukrainian famine. And that guy's name is Gareth Jones. And she's telling him that basically you gotta crack a few eggs in order. Make an omelet and he says, Well, hold up a second. What if you're wrong? We need a better worlds. But what if you're wrong? And it finally occurred to her that maybe she could be wrong that any system that requires the breaking of the eggs in this way. Maybe she's wrong about the system. Over The New York Times They have never let go of the certainty that they're right about the system is just a new brand of right about the system. Walter Durante was sure that the communist we're right. And so he was willing to overlook the Ukrainian famine. And now you have a group of people over The New York Times book staffers who hate America so much they hate the American system so much they wish to tear it down. They believe that it is rooted in racism, sexism, bigotry. Homophobia needs to be torn down, and that is a moral certainty. And that means that if you have to abuse people who disagree with you, you do it. It means you have to basically passive aggressively threatened people your own publication. You go ahead and you do it because you have the moral high ground and doesn't matter who has to suffer in order to make that happen. It doesn't matter if the Overton window has to shut. The Overton window shouldn't even exist. It shouldn't exist. There's one approved opinion, and it is the only approved opinion. You know, it's not just buried over the New York Times is happening to you, Andrew Sullivan, a man with whom I have had significant disagreement. Remember Andrew Sullivan, who has been interesting on many issues, but also is the same guy who One suggested that Sarah Palin daughter was not actually her own daughter and also like Andrew Sullivan has kind of a quirky history. But a lot of his writing is really interesting, he writes over at New York magazine. He's been speaking out about cancel culture, and now he has quit. New York magazine. He knows he's leaving at the end of week. He said. This will be my last week in New York magazine. I'm sad because the editors I worked with there are among the finest in the country. I'm immensely grateful to them for vastly improving my work. I'm also proud of the essays and Collins I wrote at New York magazine, some of which will be published in a collection of my writing scheduled for next year. The underlying reasons for the split are pretty self evident. Again. It is pretty obvious exactly what happened here. He felt the same way in New York magazine that the very wise felt at The New York Times he wrote about very wise actually in mid June and about the general perspective of The New York Times. Said that they have a view of the world with moral clarity, but no moral complexity. Aboutthe 16 19 project in the view of people like Nicole Hannah Jones. So the New York magazine editor in chief of the name David Haskell, responded to Sullivan leaving His response is everything. His response is just as important as Barry's letter because it really does demonstrate the thought processes that go on inside the editorial halls of power or cowards, surrender to the woke staff who are intent on creating a new hierarchical orthodoxy in thought. We'll get to that in just one second first. So, folks, if you really enjoy the Ben Shapiro, Shall we have a bunch of other shows over at daily wire?.

"Andrew Sullivan, a gay conservative anti Trump commentator, disparages US associate judge Neil Gorsuch in a column for New York magazine for his constrained logic in ruling for LGBTQ rights, but concedes the bow stock decision was done. The last quote, immediate and transformative, Sullivan writes. Quote Every single goal the gay rights movement has set out to achieve in my lifetime has been one gays can marry. We conserve our country openly with pride. We're categorically protected from discrimination in employment in public accommodations in every state. Many once thought it would happen in reverse order with employment discrimination barred before civil marriage was extended to gays and lesbians. But history has its surprises. Nonetheless, it's done finish accomplished. Transgender people. Milt may tell a different story. Despite historic ruling in both stock, and it's affirmation of transgender rights in the workplace. The battle certainly isn't over for Trans Americans who don't even yet have all the goals achieved as outlined by Frank's tongue in cheek radical homosexual agenda. Because of President Trump's transgender military band. Transgender people aren't allowed to join the military and serve consistent with their gender identity, Nor do they have access to transition related care, effectively blocking them from service. Health care is another ongoing issue for transgender people, affordability and access to care, including transition related care and gender reassignment surgery remains an issue, although that may soon be deemed unlawful as a result of the ban on sex discrimination in Section 15 57 of the Affordable Care Act, which should apply to the law as a result of the boat dock decision. Violence against transgender people also constitutes. Although lesbian gay gays bisexuals are still facing hate crimes because of their sexual orientation. The human rights campaign and other transgender advocates keep a tally each year on people killed in the United States who identify as transgender. Our Kiesling, executive director of the National Center for Transgender Equality said Despite the both stock decision, transgender people are still quote, disrespected, discriminated against and being killed. Public. Um, while we've come really far, this is not what the final victory looks like. Not even close. Road going forward, Kiesling said, would be to make sure the bow stock decision is implemented. Then passage of the Equality Act legislation, she said, would build on both stock by banning anti trends discrimination in federally funded programs. Such as jails, prisons and immigration detention. Kiesling said. Quote. We are years away from being finished. The stuff we've done so far is kind of the base that we now have to build a lot of really good stuff on. So not to get all but maybe this is end of the beginning, But it's not the beginning of the end yet Excuse me, certainly not the end. Prior to the boat Stock decision, the flagship vehicle for achieving federal nondiscrimination protections for LGBT Q. People had been the Equality Act, which would amend the Civil Rights Act. You two find anti LGBT Q discrimination as explicit and explicit form of sex discrimination, in addition to expanding the landmark law in other areas, such as broadening the definition of public accommodations. But with the Supreme Court ruling, much of that work has been done. The decision relates to employment but applies to all laws barring sex discrimination, such as those in housing, credit, jury service, health care and education. Any LGBT Q Protections. Thie Equality Act would institute where there is already a law against sex discrimination would be redundant. Nonetheless, if the Equality Act were to become law, it would expand LGBTQ nondiscrimination protections in public accommodations and federally funded programs, which are unaffected by the both stock decision. Because no law prohibits discrimination in those categories. Also, it would make clear the Religious Freedom Restoration Act can't be used in court to justify anti LGBT Q discrimination. Further. The Equality Act would expand the definition of public accommodation to include retail stores, banks, transportation services and health care services. Black youth followed in a store by a mall cop or a woman being charged more for a car repair, for example, would gain new legal recourse for discrimination. There are no hints that talks are underway for LGBTQ youth advocates to abandon the Equality Act for another legislative vehicle. Enacting legislation at the federal level two bar anti LGBT Q Nondiscrimination continues to be a high priority. Ray carry, executive director of the National LGBT Q Task Force, said quote as a movement, we will be moving forward on securing full federal protections through Congress. We've been working on this. For years. We've been expanded initially from the Employment nondiscrimination Act. It now covers many more areas of potential discrimination, and that is where our focus will be. I asked if the Equality Act is still the right vehicle for that, Kerry replied, Yes. Thank you very much. Richard. We have five minutes left. What should we do with that little calendar business and calendar? Okay, I'll start with calendar. You read fast. Well, I'm not going to read the whole thing.

Or you don't kill the baby. Their philosophy has taken them to this place is taken the back pain ISM where they're going to such sacrificing children. It is absolutely. He's absolutely right about this. And this is the thing that the left is scrambling to cover up because this is what the biggest gun that Donald Trump has in his arsenal. You know, there was a piece by Andrew Sullivan in New York magazine that was so wonderful because Andrew Sullivan. I don't know if you remember he's he's the writer. He's gay and he's he announced himself as a conservative, which was total nonsense. But he, but he called himself a conservative, and he was the one who went crazy about whether Sarah Palin child Trig. Was actually Sarah Palin. And I've always felt that the guy was a little bit loopy, and he had this kind of weird craziness that kind of swoop swoop every now, and again is that something that sounded like common sense to a New York magazine has an article called the nature of sex. And he starts out talking about a radical feminist organization called the women's Liberation Front. That went on a panel to the conservative Heritage Foundation and argued that sex was fundamentally biological and not socially constructed. And they were given a row. This is his words giving a rousing round of applause by the Trump supporters religious, right members, natural law theorist and conservative intellectuals who comprised much of the crowd because they were talking common. They were talking against something called the inequality of the they were talking about the equality act the equality act, which is a big thing that they're trying to get where trans people will be treated as whoever they want to say, they are as a federal nondescript discrimination Bill has been introduced multiple times in various ways and would add gender. Identity to the Civil Rights Act of nineteen sixty four. Here's the problem with this for gay people, and I'm going to use my own words. But this is basically what Andrew Solomon says is that if there's no such thing as gender if gender is not a biological fact, then gay people ceased to exist. What is gay person gay man is a man who wants to sleep with another man. A gay woman lesbian is a woman who wants to have Sachs's attracted to other women. If a guy can say that he's a woman and sleep with a woman, therefore be a lesbian, the meaning of lesbianism just just disappears. Because once you start talking nonsense you get into a nonsensical world, I'm going to tell this old joke. This will probably get me in trouble. But I'm gonna tell it anyway, two gay guys standing outside Saks Fifth Avenue in New York and a gorgeous, gorgeous woman, walks out and the two gay guys are riveted they stand and they look at this beautiful beautiful woman as she walks out. And she's classic New York. Go. Model like beauty. She gets into a cab. She swoops in the cabin disappears. And one gay guy turns the other and says while don't you sometimes wish you were lesbian. That's a funny joke is because it shows that gender and preference, a real things sex and preference, a real things part of people's personalities, and you can't just raise some. And once you do that once the left wants to do that even their own people start to disappear just like the babies, just like the lives. The real lives of the babies start to disappear once you start talking nonsense. Once you start talking nonsense. You don't have to be an evil person. You don't have to be an evil person to start doing evil things..
