"No brain surgeon, but you know what I'm saying? He's one smart guy. You know that he separated twins. That was my twin brother in high eye. Yeah. But you guys were you guys were getting into it, arguing about climate change or something, and he separated you with a level of diplomatic finesse that only Ben Carson could pull that off. He separated a lot of twins, some unintentionally. Well anyway, the thing is that we've got to get serious folks, enough goofing around about Ben Carson. Let's get back to, I don't know, I guess now that Biden has been among the royals. He is himself styling himself his incontinent highness. And so that's really the proper title. His incontinent highness Joe Biden, we know that a lot of bad things happened when he was around the Pope. Something really, really unpleasant happened. And all I'll say is, oh my goodness, it was ugly. It went a step further than the incident, the recent incident with Camilla Parker Bowles with Camilla, it was only audible and it was gaseous. Let's put it that way. I think it approached a solid state or solid or liquid state when he was in the presence of the Pope. So he decided to pull it back to another state of matter, the gaseous when he was with Camilla Parker Bowles because as we know she's not, she's not standing in the shoes of the fishermen, saying that's right. And the Pope could forgive him. Yeah. At the moment. Yes. That's right. Well, is that a Marxist virtue? Well, all right. Well, listen, we should say this to our audience since we're being really silly to the point of losing our audience. Let's get serious for a second. If you want to, we'd like you to go to my pillow dot com or Frank speech dot com. There are some giganto sales now. You have to use the code Eric. But they're huge huge sales because Mike lindell.

"Hey folks, I'm talking to Ben Carson, doctor Ben Carson, former head of hud and general American heroes first. I'm concerned that there are many things I want to ask you about in a limited time we have just to go back to my question before the break. What can people do? It seems that the medical establishment is at least confused if not putting out bad information. What do you think people can do? Well, well there are a lot of physician groups, a medical groups who have sort of been silenced or people trying to cancel them because they are talking about the alternative. They're alternatives are very effective. Ivermectin, incredibly effective. As a prophylactic or when you first get the disease. When you get to disease not as a prophylactic hijacked chloroquine works very well as a prophylactic. In fact, if you go to western Africa, almost all the countries along there, you have to take a hydroxychloroquine or an equivalent anti malarial. And their incidents of COVID is much, much lower than ours. And that's not a coincidence. But it's hard to get hydrochloroquine. Yeah, because of politics. You know, hydrochloric politics is killing people is what you're telling me. Been used for 60 or 70 years. And it's safe. And we know that. And I think there's really no reason that we should have had hundreds of thousands of people dying. But as you and probably many people know in order to get the vaccine and to get an EUA and emergency use authorization, you can not have another effective treatment. Therefore, you have to sort of say those things don't work. I think it's criminal quite

"I have the joy and privilege to speak with doctor Ben, Carson, who has so many things I could use to describe him, I will just say that let's just say he was one of the top of brain surgeons in the world. We'll leave it at that. 60 honorary doctorates. That's just showing off doctor Carson. Was that really necessary? That's just embarrassing. Now, now let me ask you a question. What's the last time you got an NRA doctor? 'cause you know, I think once you get with the Trump gang, those invitations go away. Oh, there's no question about that. A couple of years. It's kind of funny, isn't it? Suddenly, suddenly you're not so wonderful. What happened to you? And once people discover that you're conservative or that you don't follow the thinking that they envision. But that's all the more reason that we have to continue to fight. We have to fight for the freedom in our country. Freedom of speech, freedom of thought. And all you have to do is think back to Venezuela. I've been visited Venezuela a number of times before they turn directly socialists. Very prosperous country. Number one economy in South America, beautiful hotels and resorts and museums and shopping centers. The biggest controversy that the people had was whether or not they were the most beautiful people in the world. That's what they talked about all the time. And now look at them. Worst economy in South America, people fleeing for their freedom, almost overnight. And if you don't think that that can happen in this country, no country ever thinks it can happen there, and then it happens. And that's why we have to so jealously, guard our freedoms, and when we see them slipping away in any manner, be it a vaccine mandate or anything else, we really have to be willing to stand up for what we believe

"Our constitution was designed for a moral and religious people. And as inadequate for the governance of any other. When you have people who really don't care about what anybody else thinks, it's not designed for that kind of individual or that kind of government. And it's going to be the people who stop it. It's not going to be the government. It stops it. Because what the governments do, they grow the expand they infiltrate and they dominate. Just like lions, lines aren't bad animals because they kill gazelles and eat them. That's what buying to do. And that's what governments do. And that's why our founders work so hard on our constitution to give the people a tool to control the government. But there must be courageous and knowledgeable enough to use it. What are some of the things that folks can do? I get that question all the time. And now I have Ben Carson as my guest. Doctor Carson, what can some folks do out there? And what are some of the things that you're working on? Well, I think most important things are not to be silent. Not to stand in the corner with your head down and hope that somebody doesn't call you a nasty name or try to cancel you. Because you can't be the land of the free, if you're not also the home of the brave. So we had a wonderful example last week in Virginia. As people actually stood up, Democrats, Republicans, independents, they all stood up and said, you know, we're in charge. You're not in charge, government. You work for us. We don't work for you. This is what people have to begin to do. If they don't do it, the government will take complete control of all of our lives. Well, it's interesting because it seems to me that things have gotten so extremely bad that many people who would ordinarily keep sleeping are waking up. So that is the good news that there are people that just never dreamt that we could have gas prices soaring grocery prices soaring, literally millions of people. Coming across our unnecessarily our borders. Well, for sure, the supply chain problems, weakness around the world, losing many, many billions, dollars of medical, sorry, a military equipment to our enemies, just levels of horror that I think almost nobody could have believed would happen this quickly. And you know, it wouldn't have had to happen. And it doesn't have to happen if people don't adopt a my way or the highway type of attitude. You know, when it comes to energy, for instance, you know, we had the cleanest air in the clinic's water since it was measurable during the last administration. And still, we were able to become energy independent and be a net exporter of energy and have that whole aspect of our lives under our own control. And then, you know, comment, we destroy all of that, which obviously is going to have a tremendous impact on people because of the prices of energy that are going up. What would intelligent people do? Intelligent people would say, we've got all this. We've got energy independence. And we also want green renewable energy. There's absolutely no reason that we can't keep what we have and work on what we want and be able to do a substitution as time allows. And as technology allows. That's where the smart person with the well, is it so much that they're not smart as it is that they are driven by ideology. In other words, if we were dealing with logic that would be one thing, but it seems to me that today's left and this administration of sorts, whatever it is, this conglomeration of people claiming to be the administration, that they're driven by an ideology that it doesn't make intellectual sense. There's something else going on. We're going to a break. We're going to come back with doctor Ben Carson folks, do not go away. Hey, folks Eric taxes here. Joe Biden and the Democrats have laid out the most socialist agenda our country has ever seen. Instead of following president Trump's blueprint that had the economy booming, the Dems are going to raise taxes, increase regulations and skyrocket and.

Dr. Ben Carson Shares His Thoughts on COVID-19 Vaccines

"Doctor Ben Carson, welcome to the program. Thank you, always good to be with you. We can't do like a fun cooking segment with you where like we do a little brain surgery and you show us the latest techniques. So we're gonna have to talk about more we're going to talk about less serious things than brain surgery. I want to talk to you about first of all, you've got a number of projects going on that I'm excited about. You've got the American cornerstone institute. But literally yesterday, you talked a little bit, I think it was yesterday about the vaccine and the risks from some of these vaccines that were theoretically not allowed to talk about, which I find really outrageous. And I said, since we're having you on the program, maybe you could talk a little bit about your thoughts on what these vaccines can do in our blood to our hearts. I'm just hearing all kinds of disturbing reports. Well, first of all, recognize that getting a vaccine as quickly as we got it was quite a miraculous thing. It required a lot of people working together and it probably saved a lot of lives. Having said that, there's a lot of talk about whether or not we should be following the science. And we absolutely should be looking at benefits versus risk and recognizing that in America, we have the best medical care system that exists anywhere in the world. And we have highly trained very skilled physicians and practitioners. And why in that case does it make any sense at all for the government to be mandating anything that has to do with health? What we should be doing is encouraging people to go to their healthcare provider who knows what their individual situation is. One size fits all does not work in medicine. I can tell you from working for decades and medicine. It just doesn't

"A lot of people don't know the comedian Soupy Sales was in the original shadow lands and in the one with Deborah winger and Anthony Hopkins. That role was played by professor Irwin Corey. Anyway, so that's tomorrow Norman stone, you should go to C. S. Lewis movie dot com. But Alban before we go to Ben Carson, the brain surgeon, I want to say that I did an interview with the Babylon bee. You listen to it. I didn't have the guts to listen to it. It was terrific, really. It was very funny, very funny. But it was very in depth. I mean, I got into all kinds of stuff. They basically said to me, okay, Eric, we got to talk about the elephant in the room. You went from being a Christian intellectual to like a violent Trump supporter. They basically said that. Yes. And I had to sit there and take it as though it were true. You know, and but the point is that I love those guys. I love the Babylon B very much so but so you think that it was funny because they didn't seem to be as funny as you'd expect them to be writing for the Babylon bee. And they thought I would be funnier, but the point is we talked about really serious stuff. That's right. But I thought you were funny because again you didn't really try to be. You just got to answer their questions and they were like, it was very, people have to go and watch it at the Babylon B website. You'll see it right there. It's featured. Actually, I mean, I talk about some very serious stuff I talk about. I blocked Phil visser on Twitter. Now he's a friend. I really talk about you know we're living in such divided times. And if you disagree with me politically, I still love you and want to be your friend. I don't care if you disagree with me. We don't even have to talk about these things. Sometimes it's preferable not to talk about them. But there are some people who, you know, even though I want to be their friends that they can only talk about why they think I'm lying or something flattering usually like that. But I just want to say that when we come back, we're talking to Ben Carson and at the end of the hour we're going to circle back to the incontinence, bru ha ha. On the other side of the pond, oh my goodness, folks, don't go away. You're a little touch. Angie baby. Lovers. And they were folks. I've got to tell you a secret about relief factor that the father son owners Pete and Seth. Taubman have never made a big deal about, but I think it is a big deal. I really do. They sell the three week quick start pack for just 1995 to anyone struggling from pain like neck shoulder back, hip or knee pain, 1995, about $1 a day. But what they haven't broadcasted much is that every time they sell a three week quick start, they lose money. In fact, they don't even break even until about four to 5 months after if you keep ordering it. Friends, that's huge. People don't keep ordering relief factor month after month if it doesn't work. So yes, Pete and Seth are literally on a mission to help as many people as possible deal with their pain. They really do put their money where their mouths are. So if you're in pain from exercise or even just getting older or the three week quick start.

"It is for its fans. I'm back in the studio album. I'm back in the store. We're back. I know. Does anybody care? I don't know. There are a lot of people that aren't watching this on video. And by the way, to the people listening on radio right now, shame on you. What is your problem? Yeah. Listen, maybe we're joking, but we do joke around, but I want to say this. I've been traveling everywhere. Yes. No, actually, I just broke my own rule. I want to say, in a moment, we'll be speaking with Ben Carson, brain surgeon. Wow. Yes. Ben Carson, brain surgeon. Can you think you'll look at this rash on my arm? Oh, sure. Sure. He has unguents and poultices, mustard plasters. He's got the range of things in his bag, and he'll hook us up. It's like Felix the cat hook us up. Yes. I know some people on the staff have horrible acne on their backs, and he knows how to deal with that. And anyway, he's a big deal. It's Ben Carson. He's going to be on this program. Any second. But before we go to Ben Carson, we have to talk about several other things. First of all, first of all, as I was saying earlier, I've been traveling. So I don't think I've ever traveled quite this much. So I'm almost literally dizzy and I yesterday I keep having to fly through Dallas. And it's just confusing, but I was in Wichita, Kansas. Before Wichita, Kansas, I was in Houston, I spoke at a church in Houston, grace, woodlands. This is one of those heroic churches. I want to tell you folks, if you get near The Woodlands, go to grace woodlands. The pastor is Steve riggle. I'm telling you, just one of those places where you want to know they exist. I was in Wichita, Kansas, and the folks in Wichita. There's organization there called culture shield network. Absolute heroes. I spoke a couple of nights ago. There had to be about 800 people there. Many of them listening to my speech. Wow. But we have to get to the most important thing. The current events. The current goodness. Actually, let me say this too. In our two we're not gonna Paul gottfried, he's written a book about anti fascism or fascism. Actually his two books once fascism and one is antifa. And they cancel each other out. So we're not. All right, and then tomorrow, we speak to my dear friend Norman stone. About his new film. Wow. You know about this? Oh, yeah. It's about C. S. Lewis. Great. And it is called if you actually, if you go to the website it's called the most reluctant convert. If you go to C. S. Lewis movie dot com, folks, C. S. Lewis, I'm giving you a hot tip, write this down. I don't care if you have to pull over. You do what you need to do. C. S. Lewis, movie, dot com, watch that shoulder there. C. S. Lewis movie dot com. And we're also having Brian kilmeade on from Fox News. We still talk to people from Fox News. Isn't that great? Okay, okay, but we have to talk about my Babylon bee interview. Yeah. But before that Alban, wow, we have talked about the hottest news of the day. The hottest news of the day is we have an incontinent leader of the free world. Not incompetent. Oh, yes, of course. He is incompetent and forgive me for even suggesting you may not be. But I don't want to insult your intelligence. But the fact is incontinence also has entered the picture. And the Twenty-fifth Amendment enables the government to invoke the Twenty-fifth Amendment to remove a president on the grounds of incontinence. If you listen to the program yesterday the day before, we covered this when he was at the G 6 summit, which I think Alban you said was the G 6 summit turned into the GI summit. Right. Well, because he has some pronounced GI issues. I think the gas line either ruptured or he threatened to cancel the gas line and his body rebelled and the bottom line is with in the presence of Camilla Parker Bowles who is styled the duchess of Cornwall. She looks a bit like a death's head, but she is the duchess. Listen, folks, you can laugh all you want. She's the duchess of Cornwall, and she stole Charles away from Diana, write that down. Well, well, Biden went from corn pop to Cornwall, it looked like. Yes. And that's what he's trying to, you know, he's trying to get in with the royals, but the bottom line is royal flush evidently something happens, something untoward, and that's putting it mildly a blast from the past, I guess you could say from the night before when he ate at Simpsons on the strand, and he had a little too much of the beef and you know, they have very rich foods there. They do. And anyway, at the G 6 summit, he, how do we put it? I just think there was a natural gas rupture or leak or some kind. And Camilla Parker Bowles grimmest horribly, so much so that she because she was in close proximity to the blast. Yeah. And if only feet away from the epicenter and she grimaced so, so dramatically, so violently that she's had to have what's it called facio maxillary surgery to restore her to her previous facial self. But anyway, I say this just because we want to cover the important issues on the program. We sometimes we joke around. But this was an international incident. I do wonder if he tried to like move furniture or something and try to make the sound like it, so we could say, oh, that was the furniture. I was moving the furniture. That wasn't that. Well, I got to tell you something. He moved he moved more than furniture. This guy. This is an international incident. And a lot of people believe that it was Biden's way, really of sending a message on behalf of Diana, the Prince of Wales, just to say, you know what? I'm not okay with what you did there. But he couldn't say it verbally. So he had to express it in another way. And I respect that. Yeah. It's like blinking SOS when you've been held by. Yeah, that's what I said the other day. It's kind of a just a way of getting out what otherwise would be you'd be unable to get it out, so to speak. And that's all the news for today folks. We're going to talk about we're going to talk about less serious things now. So we've got Paul, we've got Ben Carson coming up in our two we've got Paul gottfried tomorrow. We're talking to my friend Norman stone, the film director. Now he did the shadowlands for the BBC. That was great. Starring Joss ackland, Claire Bloom. Yes.

Divide in the united states and more importantly how can we reverse it from severe good question and obviously something that concerns many of us. You know there was a time in not too distant past quite frankly when our political atmosphere was occupied by democrats and republicans democrats or republicans. Who had the same end goal. That just had different philosophies about how to achieve it now. It's different now. They don't have the same goals now. We have people who love what america stands for liberty and justice for all one nation under god and we have another group of people who want to fundamentally change america who actually dislike what america represents aunt is gonna obviously be more difficult now to get on the same page with people who don't like the page snap on and wanna turn it however because we had those big We do have the ability to sit down. We do have the ability to discuss things. We do have ability to work things out. We shouldn't be trying to eliminate each other. Which should be trying to work with each other. We can do that. It's gonna require voices of reason. No question about that but it's also going to require at platform whereby the people who truly love and believe in america can get their voices heard when we have organizations like facebook and twitter and some of the other social media platforms trying to shut down the speech. The people who don't agree with the leftist agenda it makes very very difficult however the society is the mother of invention and those new transplant platforms are being created and they will be here very soon and i think that's going to help to level the playing field. This next question is from glenn from california and he says it seems like homelessness around the country keeps growing. Why do you think that is and what our ideas to solve. One of the grand challenges of our time again very appropriate question. Obviously that was something. We dealt with a lot. When i was at hud on. Obviously it's been something we've been working on in this country for for decades and it is getting worse. Part of the problem is if you go out there and you see. The homeless people like visited the los angeles a number of times skid row in some of the other areas a lot of those homeless people are suffering significantly from drug addiction from mental illness. It's very problematic. And they have something. Some of these may with call the housing first program where you just say. Let's get people off the street. Not requirements nothing. Just get him off the street. 'cause they're safer off the street and it costs less to take care of them off the street..

"ben carson" Discussed on The Eric Metaxas Show

"Folks. I'm talking to ben carson soul. They will read the other cheek and don't give in and will roll around. Jeff folks welcome back and welcome to the segment where i let dr ben carson complete his previous thought across. I would say you know what we really need to to recognize is that this is not really about democrats republicans this is about people who love what america stands for and people who think that we need to fundamentally change it into something else. And i know amongst the the republicans. There's a lot of dissension and griping and never trumpers and all kinds of different factions. What they need to understand is what they are fighting for is much greater than the little pet peeves that they may have. We are talking about the future for our children and our grandchildren. Will they be free or will. They not be free. And the fact of the matter is if you can't unite those people who love america than america will no longer exists. It will turn into something else and you. Your grandchildren will be the ones who will suffer as a result of that. So you gotta be able to look at the big picture. And not just a little pet peeve because whatever that little pet peeve is that's going to be gone to well the problem of course is that as as bad as many republicans are not standing against the woke kness in the madness which is ultimately cultural marxism. Let's call it what it is. I think we also have to say that. The democratic party of today has been entirely hijacked by leftists in other words. The party of bill clinton or jimmy carter or jfk. Party is long gone. It's been taken over by people who are in bed with marxists. I mean the idea that. Us embassies would be flying. The blm flag is it. Might as well fly the swastika that is a marxist organization that not only doesn't help black people but harms black people. That's where we are with the current administration in quotes. And i and i hope that people can actually sit back and understand that But but i do have another fear. And that is When the right people get back in right-leaning that is that they will want to exact revenge and that they will say in a. Let's make sure that these people never arise again and that would be wrong to you. Know at at some point adults in the room have got stand up and exert themselves. We can't continue this. I hate this because you came up with this idea. Whatever it is we're going to destroy it because you came never seen that happen and immature sept- with donald trump. No matter if he said. I think calculus is good. I think a lot of young people would want to pay him just to say that so that calculus would be wiped off of their course list. I mean anything. he said. He referred to ultraviolet light. He referred to any number of things hydroxychloroquine drugs or clark all he would do mention it but the level of madness i mean people talked about bush derangement syndrome. Honestly i have never seen anything to equal it. It seems to me almost to be a spiritual issue. I've simply never seen people abandoned reason And even abandoned self interest. They just seem to be Written by fury but remember the other side many of them feel exactly the same way and we have got to get to a point where we can sit down and put the facts on the table. It's one of the things that we do at. American cornerstone have these roundtables in different parts of the country. Put the facts in the middle of the table. Invite people from all perspectives and let solve the problems based on facts not an ideology unless we get to that point all we do is argue back and forth and throw hand grenades in each other Are you familiar with the work of dr bob. Woodson and seventeen seventy six nights. He's a he's a hero. I hope maybe you'll work with him. Because i'm just. I'm amazed that you know you talked about the the adults in the room. He's another adult in the room and the idea that he has to work so hard. And you have to work so hard to get your message out there. When i do agree with you. Most americans i would think would agree with your message. Now listen since you're also a medical doctor have to ask you. Were you surprised that even death and illness was politicized in the way that it was during this pandemic that we are now through to some extent i was a little surprised at the extent to which it happened. And how rapidly it happened There's no question about that. And you know the the fact that there are things that are helpful like hydroxychloroquine that's demonstrated in other parts of the world quite effectively like western africa where their percentage of people coming down covert nineteen ninety four percent lower than ours. Why do you think in china they use hydroxy corcoran where the thing came from the there's You know we heard ourselves when we throw politics and to medicine. And that's why the messages have been so incredibly confusing. And i've i've been a little disappointed with some of the people that i've known for very long time And the medical field who are aligned with the government and who perhaps have not demonstrated the the level of integrity that i would expect say well you as typical your gracious. I would even think over gracious because what they have done is at least despicable if not criminal and murderous because lives were at stake the lives of people who trusted them. I had a naomi wolf on my program simply. Because i had her on my program and she's very liberal feminist. She was in my class at yale. Youtube banned us completely for even allowing her point of view. So we're living in difficult times. You're just one of the beacons of light In the midst of these times. I'm just grateful to you dot carson for for everything that you're doing we've just got about thirty seconds. What what can we do those of us who were listening to help you do what you do. First of all. Thank you for being void of courage. Remain courage you cannot be the land of the free. if you're not the home of the brain but everybody has a sphere of influence. Please be willing to stand up in that sphere of influence. Don't you hang your head in a corner and hope no 'cause you a rate since with some other name because if we don't stand up for what we believe we will lose what we believe in this nation man. Thank you so much coupla. You figure eric always good to be with you Guess what it's time for the.

"Zero four and welcome back i'm talking to dr ben carson secretary ben carson in any case here he is dr carson. I've gotta ask you the cancel culture. We have and i feel like it's part of god's calling on my life to say as publicly and loudly as i can to most americans. You're not crazy when you think that the world has gone crazy everybody needs to be encouraged. Like yes there is lunacy in them there hills. it's just pure madness. Most americans no but they're too busy to deal with to talk about it. And i just want to be one of those voices that says folks. We all know that it's gone crazy. Don't worry most of us know and we're doing what we can behind the scenes. What do you make of it dr carson. Because it is really rome nothing less than madness. It's it's antithetical to some of the founding principles of our country You know when. I go back to the cornerstone principles of liberty. That means that people came to this country because they wanted to be free to be free to express themselves verbally and in every other way Without government interfering with everything they were doing now. Some people say we still have freedom of speech here but do you really just. Because the government is imposing restriction if the government is in compliance with big tech and the media it is absolutely the same effect. Okay hang on. I've got interrupt you because you just made a very important point very very important point if the government is conspiring agreeing with those who are silencing then then in fact the government is using its power which is given to it by we the people to work against the people. So how do you make the case that the government is doing that in other words if they say oh it's not us it's private companies. How how do you make the case that the government and the current fake administration is in fact somehow using its power wrongly. Well the government has the responsibility of guaranteeing for its people life liberty and the pursuit of happiness. They are not allowing us to live in freedom. So they're reneging on the responsibility to promote liberty when they allow any other to destroy any of those principles and that needs to be made clear to all the people at twenty things were doing also remember with cancel culture. It is antithetical to prince. People's faith are judeo-christian values. Tell us to love your neighbor not to cancel your neighbor if you disagree with them completely antithetical to both liberty and to say which are two guiding principles the principle of community. Which is that a working together. I just had an hour long conversation. that will be televised with benjamin crump. Obviously we come from two extraordinarily different Vantage points but we want the same things and being respectful listening to each other and and talking about what are the facts. It is possible to make progress. That's what community is all about in america. We have much more that we agree about than what we disagree about. But we allow the media and others to take those things we disagree about. Put them on the tour fraught and make that seemed like the most important issue and actually see the american people into thinking that we are each other's enemies we are not each other's enemies but if we continue to believe that we will destroy our nation a. House divided against itself cannot stand. Jesus said it. Abraham lincoln said it. It's absolutely true. And the last cornerstone principal life. We as we've gotten further away from respect of life from the wound to the tune. We've become less respectful of each other. And has that has coarsened our behavior our dialogue and it is going to obviously wreak havoc if we don't get a handle on it and stop allowing people to manipulate us. What do you make of the fact that our government including the republicans who had power for some time until recently did not do more to stand against big tech. I think there are a lot of people that they're they're effectively pinheads because all they focus on is the free market quote unquote as if there is such a thing divorced from virtue and context and they just thought well let it ride. We can't do anything about about private companies which is preposterous. Because we can have. We can do trust busting. It's been done it needs doing and then there are other things. I mean if a company for example is involved with china who is our enemy who is working against human rights and civil rights with all the power that they have the idea that we cannot take a stand against them or require our own companies or companies that are making billions from the american market to have certain benchmarks Dealing with with countries. Like that i mean why do you think the republicans didn't do more. I guess this is my way of saying that. I think that a lot of people are very disgusted with the republican party. Because many in the publican party did not put america. I think they Falsely assume that they had more time than they did Given the fact that the economy was doing so incredibly well and that so many other parameters were functioning a very good way. They just assume that they would have more time. And that was a false assumption. They will eventually have power again. I pretty much feel that the guarantee because people are waking up pretty quick right right. I well for me jack carson. We're going to go to break when we come back. I'll let you complete that sentence.

"So you were hearing that and it was affecting you. I think it was. I mean if you heard all the time that you can't succeed that You know it's a rates of society The things are stacked against you. That's what society was saying but my mother would thank something very different. Say yes. they're obstacles but you don't have to let them overcome you. That was her constant message. You're the captain of the ship for self to blame. It was a point that she always resided. It doesn't really matter what else is going on. You're the captain of your ship. You decide which way it goes and those obstacles can become your excuse for failure or they can strengthen you to take the next hurdle while it's kind of amazing that after you had this outburst and he tried to stab somebody clearly you could have killed him clearly. You have this moment. And what's interesting to me. Is that you sort of come to yourself. You're alone and that you do turn to the bible. I mean that's interesting that at that age with that kind of temperament you would have done that. Did your mother were you a christian at that time or where would you put yourself a christian. At that time. I just continue to give in to to the anger and that was that was the moment that really changed me for the first time and a fear that that was. I think my true conversion at that point doesn't mean that i'm perfect now. Believe me i understand that and i. I know that i needed savior but it made a big difference in my life. How old was your mother when she was married. Thirteen and She came from a very large rural family and she was trying to escape desperate poverty so she married my father who was twenty eight consumers dictate. They moved to the choice and he was a factory worker and My mother even though she had less than a third grade education. She's a very wise person and you know she took any extra money that we she said that an invested in property and at one point they had quite a lot of property in detroit and then unfortunately my father You know got into drugs and stuff and he. He just wasted all the money. I think if he'd been she'd been smart enough to listen to. My mother would have been extremely feel so privileged. That i met your mother. She actually signed my copy of your book when i first met you Your mother's is a hero and any book written about you including the one you wrote. Her story is lays the foundation. I think of susanna wesley. The west lease. It's kind of Astonishing what a mother can do and create in in the world. I'm glad we started there.

"Folks. Welcome the eric metaxas show. This is a show. I'm playing the role of eric metaxas. And fortunately for you. I have a real guest playing himself. Remember dr ben carson from a presidential administration. He was a neurosurgeon brain surgeon. And he's my guest. He's my friend. I'm thrilled to have you doctor carson ben carson secretary carson. Welcome thank you so much. Always delighted to be with you you. You amaze me on many levels. Let me start there. That you're you're the person that my wife often compares me to. And i want you to know i hate you for that. How i hate you because you're so. Come your calm enough to do you know twenty four hours straight operating on people's brains and i'm just i'm not that calm. You know you're like a lion. And i'm like a mongoose or something like that. So so the other day we we both spoke at the corn palace. At the frank speech thing and i had to follow you and i thought it's never good following carson. Because you're so calm you like the perry coamo of brain surgeons. There's nobody calmer than you. So anyway You're you're you're going to operate on brains. I think it's it's important to become so. I'm just i'm just working out. I wasn't always calm. I well that's see that's the issue and that's my wife and i talk about it because we read your book. Why don't you listen. A lot of people know you as the famous christian famous brain surgeon and then now you know former secretary to the president of the united states but some people don't know the early part of your life. It is an amazing story. We don't really have too much time. But i do want you to. Let's get into that for a minute because how you found faith and became the man you are today. It's let's put it this way to miracle so let's Want you say a little bit of an individual who would get extraordinarily angry as a youngster. And when i was angry. I was just out to harm people and i really didn't care what the consequences were. So you know one time. Somebody hit me with a pebble. It really didn't hurt. But i was so angry. Picked up a large rot. Her a little bit. His face broke his glasses. Almost put out to go to the hospital Sometimes was trying to close my locker at school. I didn't want it close. I hit him in the forehead with my fists. Unfortunately the lock with still in my hand put it three inch. Gash forehead. Tried to hit my mother in the head with a hammer. Because i to wear something my brother caught it from behind the one. I have not heard. Because i had the privilege of meeting your mother. I didn't i didn't realize that it rose to that level. Actually it was. Just be kind of insane when i got angry and it culminated one day when i tried to stab another youngster Who did something innocent. Like changing channel listening to and i had a large camping. I and i tried to stab him in the abdomen. And fortunately had a large metal belt buckle under his clothing a nightclub struck with such force that it broke and actually claims me you about fourteen fourteen. I remember that story. Because i don't remember what you just said about the knife breaking in other words as a an indication of the force with which you were lunging with this knife and by the grace of god. He didn't get stabbed. And that's all. It is the grace of god which i i realized that a couple of hours later. I was in the bathroom by myself. Just contemplating but i just I said if he hadn't had that belt buckle on my dream of becoming a physician because that's a whole nother story. I was terrible student. And then my mother made Books and it completely changed you know my orientation. I stopped listening to all people were saying system at stacked against you start reading about scientists and entrepreneurs and explorers and i begin to realize the person who had the most to do. It would happen to you as you not somebody else. But at that moment in that bathroom. I realized that of that was for not because with a temper like that. There was no way. I was going to be a doctor. I was going to end up in jail reform school or the grave and none of those appeal to me. I just said lord you kinda helped me. And there was a bible. And i picked it up. There are all these verses about anger and about fools and it seemed like they were all written about me and i came to understanding during that time that the reason i would be so angry all the time because i was selfish. It was always about me. Me my is. Someone was in my space. They took my thing. And i said if you can just step outside the center of the circle and look at some other people's point of view it would make a big difference. That was the last day of the head of angry outburst. Well it's hard for those of us who know you now. I've known you for some years to even imagine you being that kind of person so it does seem miraculously that you change so so dramatically. You said that you were hearing those voices on swimming. This is in the sixties. Telling you that you know you. You were a victim of a system of oppression systemic oppression..

According to the forty six page report the hurricane which hit the island in twenty seventeen killed thousands of people and left thousands more without electricity or water for months.

NAACP leader on diversity in Biden's Cabinet and commitment to civil rights

"Speech days after the election, Joe Biden think black voters for helping him win the White House. The African American community stood up again. For many with always having my back on, I'll have yours. Now. There's some concern that Biden isn't making good on that promise. At least seven civil rights groups are pressing to meet with the president elect, including the end of the P and the National Urban League. They want Biden to name or black leaders to top jobs in his administration. Marc Morial leads the Urban League mark. Welcome. Hey, it's great to be with you. Thank you for having me. My pleasure. And if and when you get a meeting with the President elect, what will you tell him? So importantly way look forward to a direct communication with the president elect, and we're gonna reaffirm our interest on behalf of the community that the number of Diverse cabinet members, particularly African Americans. Prominent and every level of the body Administration Cabinet sub cabinet. As well as at the White House. You know, we want to give the president elect due credit. He chose an excellent running mate, Senator Harris. He's made an important appointment of Cecilia Rouse, his chair of the president's Council of Economic Advisors, and Linda Thomas Greenfield as U. N ambassador. But we're heavily focused. What's known as a statutory Cabinet, defense and justice and transportation and commerce and labor and hot and education and HHS, For example, that is where The important levers of power are We're going to communicate that to him, and the second thing will be communicating. Eyes our interest in the public policy arena. We need aggressive enforcement of civil rights laws. We need strong investments through both stimulus. And infrastructure plans, and we need Focus on long term issues of racial justice, criminal justice reform, police justice reform just to name a few high priorities and finally With respect to cove it we need to ensure That the vaccine is safe and effective for all people and that there is a community based distribution system. To ensure that people in our community have access to the vaccine. I guess What I'm trying to understand is if you are actually concerned with what you've seen so far, or if you're just trying to get ahead of the process, As you point out, there have been many black officials appointed to keep jobs in the Biden administration says they're not done yet. Yeah, I think it's both. And I think it's uh they've been to statutory Cabinet nominees thus far. Treasury Three rather Treasury homeland security as well as the State Department, and that's important and we do have a concern and we do want to get ahead of the process and We want to be clear that we're looking for a cabinet. When it comes to African Americans and meets but really exceeds the high water marks of the Clinton and Obama cabinets. This is a different time. And the president elect is made of important public commitment to racial justice, and I believe he's serious about that, but toe execute that He's got to have people who have lived experiences. As well as professional qualifications, along with connections to the communities that have borne the brunt of the country's systemic racial injustice. Look, there's no doubt having a diversity of opinions from all walks of life is critical in any leadership role, but make the case why Race matters so much here. Ben Carson. I'm thinking of Ben Carson, a black housing secretary. I assume you don't agree at all with his policies on many black leaders At the same time, we're saying that outgoing Senator Doug Jones, a white man would make a great attorney general because of his record fighting for civil rights. So let me say this. Van Carson is a great doctor. I never thought Ben Carson was qualified. To be secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development. I thought he would have made made a great surgeon general. You made a great secretary of health. Human services. I think it was an example of picking a quote unquote black person and putting him in what some perceive to be a black position at the Department of Housing and Urban Development. And I think it was It was a mistake, and I think it was a disservice to Ben Carson. So I mean, it's important. Understand this is not just about a black face in a certain place.

The Brainwashing of my Dad (with documentary filmmaker Jen Senko)

"My mother thinks that rush limbaugh. Yoda you know what? Saying? She's always saying well, rush limbaugh says. Our rush had a great monologue. It was just on point. Oh it's he so tuned into the Culture Rush Limbaugh g listen to rush limbaugh the other day and of course I know I don't listen to rush limbaugh. I did fifteen years ago. You know I was a Ditto head actually read for you a chapter about right wing radio on the broadcast I read it out of my book couple of weeks ago. But I wanted to come back to this because I feel like it's Really been on my mind and it's hugely relevant in today's culture. We've got a whole group this graphic of these pulpit pounding Bible Banging, rush, limbaugh right, Wing Radio Listening Evangelical 's right the Christian Nationalists and they're screaming the name of God is they use their religion just to be Shitty to other people. May I've noticed that about a lot of these guys limbaugh Michael Savage, etc. they're just nasty people. They are always being cruel to other people there pushing buttons because they can. They're stoking the fires of outrage and they sit back and bask in the ratings and the advertising dollars and. All the way to the bank. There's this I think it's a myth that rush limbaugh is himself a Christian. I. Know He likes to speak the language of Christianity. I'm not convinced the Guy Cares at all about the Bible or religion of any kind and back I'd love to sit them down and give him like a sixty second Bible quiz just to see how much he really in fact I'd like to sit most the evangelical 's in power. Donald. Trump I'd like to give him a Bible quiz. Let's just sit down and let me quiz you for a couple minutes. Betsy Devos loved to talk to her Ben Carson Rick, Perry all these people in government are banging their. Bibles I would love to sit them down and asked him basic questions about their faith. But that's a whole other conversation. Today's conversation is with the director and producer of a film called the brainwashing of my dad, an ambassador father who SORTA got sucked in to this rush limbaugh right-wing Radio Christian, nation, kind of narrative focusing at the very least and narrative that sort of others, non-christians, sort of sets them off in their own little box while the moral righteous people are sitting over here. Now, the film itself is not new. It's been out for a few years but I referenced it in my book and I just it's been on my mind because. There is so much of this going on and right-wing radio. I don't think it's ever been more popular. There's video of this conversation. I am going to play some clips from the documentary during the broadcast. These clips add a few extra layers. So you can kind of hear the angle that she's taking Gen Sankoh Director of the documentary film, The brainwashing of my dad. So glad you're here. Hi Seth, it's nice to be here. Give me like a resume real fast the types of work that you've done before the brainwashing my dad. Sure. Will I started out as an artist and a painter? But then I felt like I wanted to reach a wider audience and I just started making films but they were always sociopolitical. The Sue. The first one was roadmap warrior women about really independent women that I met out west and then the second was was. co-director with fury derosa the vanishing city. About the lecture vacation of New York City. But also how it's happening throughout the world and cities coming less affordable and right now I'm writing a book. Also called the brainwashing of my dad. Got Picked up by source books so I can always tell you more. Fun, I mean. Let's go back to your dad. You didn't grow walk in this sort of right wing I mean I know limbaugh started back in the eighties but I mean, you didn't come from that sort of hardcore conservatism. nope. Not at all my parents were what I guess. I would describe as very liberal, very open minded. They were Kennedy Democrats and they were also like FDR Democrats they came from the depression. So FDR them was a hero who pull them out of the depression they most remembered hoover and felt like he didn't do anything but they were really enthusiastic about. And I think they were quite devastated. When he was assassinated. But yeah, they were they were I would actually list describe them as hippies before hippies same. We're very open minded My Dad especially loved talking all different kinds of people very non judgmental. As you probably saw the film, you know one time in this is in the sixties. We came out and port. Authority. We're visiting New York. For the day and there was a a black homeless man and she US Monday for some money my dad called him Sir had a conversation with them. And gave them like a couple of coins or two, but you know so they kind of thing made an impression on me that. You know accept all people and jobs. You know he wasn't for they were judgmental national change later.

An Excerpt from the book Flirting with Darkness by Ben Courson

"An excerpt from the book flirting with darkness. Ben. Carson. Weapon number three, the magic number of greatness. I got to a point in my struggle with depression where something needed needed to change must suffering. So badly, I finally decided to do something about it. The ten thousand hour rule saved my life. His Book Outliers Malcolm Glad well demonstrated that to be truly greeted anything. You have to put in ten thousand hours of practice. People such as world chess champion Bobby. Fischer businessman Bill Joy, and IBM founder Bill Gates are among the many examples. Glad. While gives of people who excelled because they accelerated they focused and worked hard and gave at least ten thousand hours to becoming the best at what they did. Glad will show that whether you want to be a fiction writer or master criminal. Hockey player or a pianist ten thousand hours was the magic number of greatness. Bent my mind to that goal is a writer Manspeaker. A resolved to stop wasting my energies, processing psychological trauma and to go on a diametrically opposed direction. Instead of disappearing over why dreams weren't coming to pass, I decided to commit myself to working my fingers to the bone to ensure they did. Psychologists, John Hayes quote looked at how long it took the best composers of all time to create their first grey work. He found that nobody including Mozarts was a child prodigy had produced a piece of work of any significance until about ten years after they had I, taken music no amount of innate talent even in a field of genius such as music could overcome the years of practice necessary to Korea work someone may be talented. They may be lucky but they still have to go through ten years of practice in order to become a master and quote. When Churchill came to power during World War Two he said this as he was being inaugurated into office as prime. Minister quote. I. Offer you nothing save blood, toil tears, and sweat and quo. Lecture Chill Ready to go to battle anew, the path will be difficult PROC- ready to claim own finest hour. Getting better stars, which is getting off your tuition in doing something. So I did. My goal was to become a writer and a speaker put in the needed hours. My nearly worked myself to death, but it was infinitely better than brooding found the effort. Cathartic in fulfilling my spirit's began to lift. I figured I had two options number one either get discouraged that my dreams were not coming pass or number to spend the effort of getting prepared for when they did. Legendary preacher Charles spurgeon advised students to stop worrying about when they would get their shot at speaking and concentrate instead on their ability, and they'll let God take the opportunity in other words quit fretting over the how and focus on the what I took these words to heart and focused on my skill set as I improved my craft, our English word amateur comes from a French Italian an line route which means to love an obvious works when he loves the process and it feels good a professional is someone who worked seven days a week whether he feels like it or not. Today. My TV show hope generation is on twenty different networks more than one hundred and eighty countries and radio shows heard on more than four hundred stations daily. I get to speak in stadiums and arenas. My quote unquote overnight success came through hours of hard work. How you'll spend your ten thousand hours may be different from how I spend mind but you'll find as I did a clear focus and a way of getting off the existential treadmill of despair, transform your life but the age of twenty one, the average American has put ten thousand hours of practice into computer and video games when I use those hours for something more productive. How hard you hustle in the darkness determines how brightly you shine in the spotlight. To prepare for speaking to people I got really good at lecturing my furniture. My chairs were my captive audience I remember that Billy Graham. One said he got his start by preaching to alligators before he preached in stadiums. You have to start with a small stuff and work your way up. So I took every opportunity that presented itself. I spoke to classes of little kids and homeless shelters at old folks, homes, and to student clubs I volunteered to take the opportunities. Others turned down, I got lots of practice. When other speakers turned an organization or church down my said, yes I did this I several years Only the small minded person will refuse the small task for me if I had an audience of four people those enough to get some more practice to put in some more hours toward my ten thousand our goal. Jesus said that if you're faithful and a few small things, you'll be given responsibility over bigger ones Matthew Twenty five that sound good to me. Yes sometimes I did feel like surface the tragic here of Greek mythology who had to roll a boulder of a hill only to see roll back down then roll it back up again only for it to roll back down again repeatedly, I'll stubborn in my pursuit it was a great weapon against despair to keep working in spite of how I felt, which puts me in the mind of a scene from Tolkien's the Lord of the Rings in the First Book of that trilogy the Fellowship of the Ring, a band of warriors is commission travel to the ends of the Earth to destroy the evil ring of power by casting it into mount doom. During their long journey. Gandalf who was their leader was thought to be killed in the minds of Maurya in response airborne stepped up to lead the band in his stead amid his grief and despair he cried out farewell Gandalf what hope have we with you then he turned to the fellowship and said, we must do without hope let us gird ourselves and weep no more come. We have a long road. Like that trek to mount doom healing is usually a long journey. We normally don't start feeling better overnight sometimes, we must go on when we feel absolutely no hope. Our quest leads down a winding path and his sometimes fraught with trolls and Goblins and all manner of Dr Treasures. But psychological heroism is possible in such journey is were taking like Eric Gordon Frodo my set my foot upon my own path out of depression I gave them my flirtation with darkness and began to tread the road toward a grand purpose and it worked after many many years. The Dreams I had begun to despair finally came true new ones came into sight, but it all began by putting one foot in front of the other. If you allow yourself to just sit around and partly catatonic state stuffing yourself with junk food is a form of therapy and watching callous hours of television. You'll probably never start feeling better. But I. Tell You that you get off the couch and venture into the world to do something toward your goals. Things will start to change in your heart and mind if you pull yourself out of bed and get going on your dreams, that's how you'll will begin the journey to healing your broken spirit.

"That if you make a claim this meet talking if you make a claim that you are in charge that you have an expertise that you are worth your salt. Well, then you should know the basics. I don't think there's anything wrong with that. Which takes us to this conversation that she has with Ben Carson. The commerce. Ben Carson, is the. Housing urban development. That's who he is. And so the congressional hearing gets the Katie porter. And she asks a question about REO. Housing germ Oreo. Do you know what that means? Let me play this first part for you. If I may as you look it up, I'd also like you to get back to, if you don't mind to explain the disparity in REO rates. Do you know what an Oreo is an Oreo are not an Oreo an? R. E R. Now, people focused on my goodness. Did he really think she said Oreo? I heard about the story. I'm like, did someone? Call Ben Carson Oreo, because that is a disparaging term for a black person black on the outside white on the inside. That's what it means. And there's no way that happened. I immediately went to the video, and went and went to the audio. No that wasn't it. But that's what everybody's focused on an Oreo are Oreo an. R E. Oh. What is an R E Ben Carson attempts to answer. Real estate. What's the stand for organization owned real estate owned? That's what happens when the property goes to foreclosure, we call it, an REO FHA loans have much higher Oreos, that is the go to foreclosure rather than to loss, mitigation, or to non foreclosure alternatives, like, short sales than comparable loans out the GS's. So I'd like to know why we're having more foreclosures that end people losing their homes with stains to their credit and disruption to their communities and their neighborhoods FHA than we are at the cheese. Now. The question. Can we look that a couple of different ways if we're talking about how government does things versus private banks do things? Maybe there is less incentive for the government to worry about whether or not someone is paying stays in the house, or what have you. Maybe that is the answer. I wish I could tell you, I've got the perfect answer here. I'm going to start digging in then again, I don't run HUD. So I'm okay with that. But we're talking about how government handles things versus how a private sector of that's the argument, we could see that there are clear differences. And there might be far more flexibilities and, and willingness on the idea of, of private sector because they can either handle a further loss or they're trying to ensure gain for the future. But asking the HUD secretary, what is an REO is not out of the realm. It is this is what she has been doing. An absolutely. Excellent job of. Yours. You say you have the expertise now answer. The question. Anybody who calls Ben Carson dumb, as a fool sa-, brain surgeon. This is an actual brain surgeon, the man is brilliant in ways that you and I simply are not. If he was a brain surgeon didn't know what yo- was, I would think nothing of it. If you are dealing in housing and you're dealing in if us to your agency, involved foreclosures, you might need to know what that is. You might need to know that. And I don't think there's anything wrong with asking that question. The Orioles stuff. That's inconsequential. It's okay for us to demand regardless of party that, you know what you're talking about.
