"All right, let's look ahead here on the weekend. If you haven't seen 2000 mules, you should. I gather it's the biggest documentary box office in 15 years. Salem is the executive producer of that movie. I have not seen it, but apparently millions of you have and you can get it from Salem now, but I think a lot of you ought to go to the theaters because we're trying to get the theaters back open. We really are trying to get the theaters back open and getting people to go back to the movies. I'm going to see a film on Sunday with the fetching misses Hewitt. We don't even know what it is. It's just that we feel like we want theaters to go back and open up. 2000 mules doing very well head over to them now if you want to watch it in the privacy of your own home or do a movie theater. Count up later on the show, I got admiral stab is in. The poor, I don't feel bad for the Russians. I feel bad for the crazy Russian soldiers. There is a story in the telegraph of Great Britain today. An entire battalion and again, I am not, I'm a civilian civilian, meaning I don't even know how to spell civilian, much less anything going on in the army. And the Russian army. But I know that when a battalion gets wiped out, trying to cross a river, that's not good for morale. So they tried to cross the river. It's in the telegraph, I tweeted it out. You should be following me on Twitter. And they got pushed back 20 clicks from 30 clicks, which in my mind I quickly estimate to be about 18 miles because the ten K is 6.2 miles and so 30 clicks must be about 18.6 miles. So Ukraine's are pushing back the Russians all over the place. They're in a static front in the Donbass, which is, you know, I couldn't draw the Donbass on a map. I know where Ukraine and Russia is, but it's part of Ukraine. And I couldn't get it right now where it is roughly. It doesn't get to Odessa. And only a part not a God, this is from the financial time. Military briefing can Ukraine push the Russian army from the country. Even that being written is something that's extraordinary. This morning, fear is clashes and the jeanine area in Israel. As Palestinians without automatic weapons open fire on the IDF, that is not a good way to stay alive till Saturday. Palestinians. The arrests of cardinal zen. Now, cardinal zen is one of my heroes. He has been boldly and bravely witnessing for the gospel and representing the Roman Catholic Church in Hong Kong for a long time. Colonel zen is 90 years old. He's a nice little old man. He's wonderful. Nice guy, wonderful man of God. And he's inspiring and he believes in the right of Catholics to have mass in Hong Kong and in free speech. So he demonstrated with about, it looks like 20 people. He held up a sign. And they arrested him. There is a cardinal zen. He's 90 years old. What's that? Tell you about the regime in China. I got to get secretary Pompeo on. Because that regime is fragile. That regime is very, very fragile. The U.S. embraces Finland's move towards NATO membership. You betcha. And here's another first. I have signed a joint letter since 9 11. I was on the arrow 9 11. After that, people want to do joint letters. I've always said no, thank you. I have just not a joint letter. I don't join groups. I'm not a member of the federalist society. I just do my own thing so that I can be a broadcast person without conflicts. But I signed a joint letter in the national review. America's crisis of self doubt. It's about going back to the declaration and the constitution and the founding principles because that's the only way to resurrect American education in American prosperity and American opportunity. So I have put that on my Twitter feed from national review America's crisis of self doubt. It is a wonderful statement. I didn't write it. I may have given a suggestion a couple of months ago for a period or a comma, but rich Lowry my hat is off to you and I'm proud to be among the company that signed it. America's crisis of self doubt come right back. I'm Hugh Hewitt..

"cardinal zen" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Globalist

"We turn now to Hong Kong where police have arrested cardinal Joseph zen, one of the most senior Catholic clerics in Asia, for breaking Beijing's national security law. The 90 year old cardinal is one of four people detained for colluding with foreign forces. While joining me now from Hong Kong is Theodore yu, a reporter for The Washington Post, who's been following the story closely. Theodora welcome to the globalist. Why was cardinal zen arrested? So cardinals and was arrested under the security law for allegedly colluding with foreign forces by serving as trustees for the now the spended humanitarian relief fund 6 one two really fund. And the fund provided financial assistance to thousands of protesters arrested into 2019 pro democracy protests and paid for their legal and medical fees. The fund has now disbanded earlier in September after the national security police issued a statement saying that they would investigate whether the entity had violated the security law. And what happens if zen is found guilty? It so far, it's unclear if they were if he and the others would be charged. But if he is found guilty, he could face a maximum sentence of life imprisonment for the collusion with foreign forces charge. What can you tell us about cardinal zen and the role he plays within Hong Kong society? Cardinals and as the most outspoken senior Roman Catholic clergy in Hong Kong, he has been an advocate of pro democracy causes and a critic of the Vatican for its silence on the city's Politico situation and the increased repression of churches on the mainland. His figure was seen in Hong Kong peaceful marshes, political matches, and he spoke out for protesters, called for no violence, and protests against a prosecution of mainland charges too. And in 2018, he vocally opposed the very controversial Beijing Vatican deal. And he also tried to meet with Pope Francis two years later trying to hoping to persuade him to appoint a new bishop for Hong Kong, who would be trusted by the Hong Kong people. And despite the slightly tricky relationship with the Vatican, the Vatican has in fact expressed concern over the arrest and there's much talk that this might seriously affect relations between China and the Vatican. Is that your sense? So from the experts I've spoke with, it seems, for example, Eric lai, a law fellow from the Georgetown university, told me that the arrest had been glad to be already tense Beijing, Vatican relations, and will cause widespread concern in the intentional world, especially at the time when the controversial deal is set to be renewed this year. But another expert low long from the Chinese university of Hong Kong had told local medium main power that chance arrest may not be intended to target their religious sectors, but more because Beijing is determined to fully control and stifle opposition and that it won't really affect the Vatican deal because the wants to avoid further separation of official and underground churches in China. But when both parties renewed a deal, they would have to talk about sense of rest, which could be a bargaining chip for the Vatican when it comes to the negotiation. Do we know how this has been reported in Mainland China? Sure. China's Xinhua news reports had mainly about the response from the Chinese foreign ministry's office in Hong Kong. And it mainly condemned foreign forces for slandering legitimate law enforcement actions of the Hong Kong police and urged them to stop this political performance full of ideological prejudice. And pro Beijing media one way Paul described the arrestees zen and the others as black clad riotous supporters. And for the involvement of black riot fund and also they suspect they are conspirators of Jimmy lai, who founded the now shuttered pro democracy newspaper Apple tale as Jim I had donated to the relief fund. And what can you tell us about those other people that were detained alongside the cardinal? Sure. So alongside with the cardano detained arrested was Margaret, who was a barrister and former lawmaker who served the public for 17 years. She is also a high profile democracy figure who was previously a director of the news outlet stand news, which is now chassis and under going through servo or national security charges. And also Dennis Ho is a well-known singer and also a pro democracy figure outspoken in her support of LGBTQ rights and most notable during the 2019 protest who has made speeches at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva and talked about the Hong Kong protests and called on for UN to remove China from the Human Rights Council. The third is scholar Hoboken. He is a prominent cultural studies academic. And he was apprehended before his departure in Hong Kong, according to local media reports. And so he was basically intercepted before he was he flew to the Europe to work as a visiting scholar. And he was apprehended before his departure. He was his contract was ended with Hong Kong's non university a month before the relief fund ceased to operate it. So yeah, and he and the others are currently on police bail. Right. The timing of this is interesting because the arrests follow the selection on Sunday of Hong Kong's new leader John Lee. Now of course we know he's a hard line former security chief. He ran unopposed in a process completely controlled by Beijing. What does this say about the future of Hong Kong under mister Lee's leadership? Right. So as mister Lee has repeatedly emphasized in his public speeches and also his manifesto, maintaining stability and safeguarding national security will be his main goals and the arrested the arrest in the past days basically shows that Lee is going to continue what the current government is doing, which is to which would signal a new way of detention under the national security law. And Lee replied he responds to the Financial Times question about sins arrest and he basically repeated the current Hong Kong government stand saying that actions will be taken accordingly regardless of the person's background. So like you said, I think we are for seeing continuation of a hotline approach and possibly more arrest in the future. Theodora, thank you very much. That was The Washington Post Theodore yu, speaking to us from Hong Kong. Now, here's what else we're keeping an eye on today. Russia has said it will be forced to take retaliatory steps over Finland's plan to join the NATO military alliance. Finland will formally announce the country's decision on Sunday after the bid has been considered by parliament and the country's most senior politicians. North Korea has announced its first death from COVID-19 with state media adding that thousands more are experiencing fever symptoms, analysts believe the virus has been present in the country for some time, but Pyongyang is only choosing to reveal it now. The UK prime minister Boris Johnson has said that he wants to act 90,000 civil service jobs in a bid to free up money to tackle the cost of living. The Labor Party has accused Johnson of pointless rhetoric and says he must do more to support people struggling with bills. And today's monocle minute reports on the opening of the European International Film Festival in Singapore. It was launched to strengthen ties and facilitate cultural exchange between the EU and the city state. You can find out more at Monaco dot com forward.

"Dot com. Tell me Eric, why is relief factors so successful at lowering or eliminating pain? I'm often asked that question, the owners of relief factor tell me they believe our bodies were designed to heal. That's right, designed to heal, and I agree with them. So the doctors who formulated relief factor for them selected the four best ingredients, yes, 100% drug free ingredients, each helps your body deal with inflammation. Each of before ingredients deals with inflammation from a different metabolic pathway. And that right there approaching from four different angles may be why so many people find such wonderful relief. So if you've got back pain, shoulder neck hip knee or foot pain from exercise or just getting older, you should order the three week quick start discounted to only 1995 to see if it will work for you. It works for me. It has for about 70% of the half a million people who've tried it and have ordered more, go to relief factor dot com or call 804 relief to find out about this offer, feel the difference. You live your life in the songs you hear on The Rock and run right here. Volkswagen back, I'm talking to John's mirac Jon it doesn't have people can read your stuff at stream dot org stream dot org. What else should we talk about? Well, Jason Jones and I co authored another piece at the stream called first China came for the Uyghurs and the Vatican said nothing. I don't know if people following China news. The most prominent Christian in China has just been arrested. Cardinal Joseph zen, 90 years old, he's the cardinal of Hong Kong. So he's from the part of China that was free until 1998 under British administration. And then was turned over to communist China. On the promise that it would retain its free political system. Of course, like all promises made by communists, that turned out to be a lie. And there have been crackdowns and arrests and China put into place a law that anyone in Hong Kong violated the Communist Party's authority could be shipped to Mainland China where the courts and the juries would be much stricter. Cardinal zen helped set up a charity fund that would help fund the defense of people against such extradition orders. China just arrested him and everyone else involved in the foundation. And they faced prison time years old. 90 years old. Are you listening, folks? Are you listening? We have companies in America making billions of dollars off of China. They arrested a 90 year old Christian hero. Do you care? Tell us the rest of the story, John. Well, the Vatican doesn't care. A few years back, the Vatican made an alliance with communist China against America. Let me repeat that. The Vatican under Pope Francis drew up an alliance with communist China against Donald Trump's America. It was a secret deal negotiated by someone named cardinal Theodore mccarrick. He's no longer a cardinal because it's come out that he was a pedophile, he had been molesting a child for years, so that's the guy. The crack negotiator of the Catholic Church in Washington, D.C.. Right. He was the archbishop of Washington. He was cozy with power, he smiled. He pretended to be the face of Catholic faith in the nation's capital. If you wonder why we have so called Catholic Christians like Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi, you can look to mccarrick. So he was friends with them. I mean, of course. When you see the so called pro choice Catholics, they were all pals with mccarrick and with people like him. They're just sad to see. And they're just together doing the business of Caesar. So mccarrick goes to China. Again, remember Trump is president. And makes this secret deal. The terms of it are secret, which reminds me of the Hitler Stalin pact in 1939. You have two apparent enemies suddenly making a secret deal and an alliance against whom. In both cases, against the democratic west. In both cases against the U.S. and England and the free market and the constitution, it's forces of evil and in the case of Francis, it's less wing Marxist infected Catholicism that is friendly to the sexual revolution, friendly to abortion, friendly to gay marriage, friendly to the destruction of the family. In other words, the forces of evil, the forces of outright evil. So this deal between the Vatican and China. Was supposed to help protect the religious freedom of Catholics in China. It did not. In fact, it led to more of them being arrested. It led to Protestant churches that don't cooperate with the Chinese government, getting bulldozed. They're getting torn down. People going to prison. At the same time, China cracked down on the Uyghur Muslims. 3 million Uighurs and other Turkish ethnic minorities in what they call the province of Xinjiang. Uyghurs call east turkestan. 3 million of them are in concentration camps right now. Getting tortured, getting re-educated, being forced to have abortions and worst of all being cut open while they are still alive to steal their bodily organs and sell them on the international black market, which is Forbes magazine reported that. That's not weekly world news. That's not funny. If you give a penny to the NBA or if you're a fan of LeBron James, there are people making billions of dollars. Participating in the satanic evil that John just mentioned going on in China folks. If you don't care about this, you are dead inside. We need to wake up. And thank you for writing this article. And the new movie Top Gun. It falsifies American history. In the original Top Gun, they were a patch from the flying tigers from when the American airmen who helped fight for nationalist China against Japan in 1941. China said you can't have that because that represents another Chinese regime. So they took it off. Top Gun this so called patriotic movie is catering to kowtowing to communist China. So no, don't waste your money on the Top Gun. Go see something else. Stay home and pray, but don't go see Top Gun because it is part of this sniveling before the communist overlords in China. And what we need to we need to pray for Cardinals in and the other imprisoned religious believers Christian and non Christian in the totalitarian hellhole that is China and we need to hold the Biden administration responsible for whatever secret deal they have with the Chinese that.

"Congratulations. You've expanded and gotten rid of finish and Swedish neutrality thus far as well as getting your hat handed to you in the first four out of 5 parts of the campaign. Russia however has according to the financial time signal is about to annex Kirsten in southern Ukraine as more and more of the Russian effort continues to be about the land bridge to Crimea and perhaps a further push to Odessa. The war is stalemated at the present moment along a fairly intense line of fighting that we haven't seen since World War II. Ukraine has stopped Russian gas flowing to Europe through a key pipeline. That is a significant event for Europe. I don't know why it would why you frame allowed Russia to make money on their pipelines when they were up killing new war crime surface today. Seeing them with a chilling video of the execution style murder of two citizens who had talked to Russian troops turned around were walking away. Back to their dealership, and they just got gunned down in the back. That's the Russian tactics. As the war grinds on its global economic toll is surging, according to the New York Times this morning, as one would expect, but it is not just the fascists in Moscow, Putin, the totalitarian in Beijing is at it. Hong Kong police arrested cardinal zen. Senior Catholic prelate in the entire country was put under arrest yesterday, is depicted with the heart of mercy showing of Jesus at his office. He was later released on bail, he is a vocal proponent of democracy. Israel struck Syrian Golan in missile attack. They're very concerned. They're getting very close to all out conflagration there as more incidents come. Doctor Horan will join us. Later in this hour to discuss what's going on in Israel. In the United States, the Pennsylvania Senate race is front and center. David McCormick I have endorsed will be joining me next hour. The world is coming down on Kathy Barnett in the last 48 hours because she surged into third place behind Doctor Oz who is fading, David McCormick who is surging in Kathy Barnett was getting close, so Doctor Oz took out after her and his surrogates did at least, calling into question her military service, calling into question her backstory and publicizing her old tweets which are pretty viciously anti Muslim. This is I haven't reviewed this completely yet. But it seems to me probably disqualifying. She is also out there on the far edge of the election, stop the steal people, and that's not electable position either in the United States. As we're about to see in Georgia next week, when governor Kemp handily wins his primary and David perdue, you can't run as an election denier. It doesn't work. And even if you believe it's sincerely and many people do, it's death in the general people don't want to relitigate 2020. They're concerned about what do you know, inflation and drugs. Inflation, of course, stated it's 40 year high. They expected it to drop to 8% year over year. It only dropped from 8.5 to 8.3%. And we already know that maze number is going to be higher than 8.3%. Joe Biden, speech, of course, did nothing. Wall Street Journal inflation slipped in April, but upward pressures remain..

I don't believe that that's the case at all. I think that we know quite well where he was going with us. There was resistance and so it hasn't come out in its full expression the way it could have. And maybe that's what he's frustrated about thinking that people don't really understand when in fact we do the cardinal para lean also addressed the controversial and still secret. I might add vatican china agreement and the church in china. He said what has been attempted and is being attempted is to protect this community which is still small but has great strength and vitality everything is being done is to assure a normal life for the church and china to guarantee space for religious freedom and communion because one cannot live in the catholic church without communion with the successor of peter with the pope and quote father. How does the cardinal think. This agreement is moving. The church in china toward communion the government doesn't seem to be allowing it to move in that direction at all. You know if the attempt is to protect the interest of the flock will then why was the flock surrendered into the hands of a bishop's named by the communist party of china No the the deal by the way. If the deal is so good why haven't they published it The the deal is unknown and as a matter of practice. The chinese communist party is dictating to the catholic church. What it can and cannot do. Children are not allowed to be categorized. The can't attend church services. You know the bishops have to be members of the patriotic association They want them to sign a pledge that they're going to support the program of the communist party You know the the normalcy and the church means fidelity to christ in the church. It doesn't mean subservience to communism and communist dictators like what we have in china. So you know cardinals. San in hong kong has spoken so eloquently about what's going on and you know in a church in which we're supposed to respect the prophetic voice of the local community I think cardinals. Zen speaks much better than others. About what chinese catholics really want. Now and bob. I mean it goes down to the distortion of the gospel itself. Communist authorities are rewriting that and inserting communist propaganda into the scriptures. This almost seems like sanctioned heresy on the part of the vatican two to allow their people to go in and absorb that and read the ten commandments of g which are written on the wall instead of the ten commandments..

"You're listening to the National Secular Society podcast hosted by Emma Park. On the first of July this year, the Chinese government pushed through a new security local coke greatly restrict citizen's rights to basic freedoms such as freedom of speech. If you've been following events in China in recent years, this most recent crackdown on civil liberties by ferry authoritarian regime will not have come as a surprise. It follows on from stories at the mass internment of weekend Muslims in Western, China of the persecution of followers of the Dalai Lama in Tibet and of the Macedonians Technology which the Chinese government is using on its own citizens throughout the country. Those who want to follow their religion religious belief independently of stated fairness continue to risk of US acution and the Chinese. Government is doing its best influence. The narrative is as well. But what is actually happening to religious minorities in China? What is the outlook for religious freedom Sharon the future? I'm joined now from Washington DC by Dr Sophie Richardson Soviet Richardson is China director at Human Rights Watch an international nonprofit organization that investigates and reports on human rights abuses around the world safety. The Hong Kong national. Security has just come into force. I imagine this is keeping. You quite occupied at the moment. It's an extraordinary law in that it seems boundless both in the behavior it criminalizes also. The people to whom it applies. It seems to actually have been written to apply even to people outside Hong Kong. And it really gives the authorities of the opportunity to punish all sorts of peaceful criticism or even behavior that's not meant to criticize the Hong Kong or the central government. If you take the law at face value, and you know the language that essentially suggests that any sort of criticism can be construed or deemed as soon. Or indicative of secessionist or terroristic impulses. The wording really is incredibly vague. You know that could include a practicing once face a I. think some of the people who may be targeted under this new law. Are People like Cardinal Zen or other figures from different faith communities who have been critical both of the Hong Kong and central government authorities. The goal of this law in Beijing's mind is to make everyone stop and think twice about any kind of behavior and wonder whether it could be construed as illegal and that will extend. To everything from choosing to run for office. To choosing to. Go to a protest, and presumably choosing to practice your face, says is the idea behind the national security load that it's temp says sufficiently vague that it it just sort of induces of paranoia, said people a just a general. Repression of people's way, they think in the way they act precisely in the forty eight hours before the law went into effect probably bears mentioned that people were not able to see the text of law until it was going into effect. But in the forty eight hours prior to that, you know we were watching all kinds of activists deleting all of their social media accounts withdrawing from political parties, announcing that they had changed their mind about whether to run for office precisely because it's not clear that those behaviors won't be prosecuted under the new walk while. Let's turn to the Chinese Communist Party am an and mainland China, and what's been going on that? Because? Of course, that's the source of this new direction in Hong Kong under the Chinese Constitution is at least on paper, a right to freedom of religion and belief. On paper you are allowed normal religious activities, and of course a great deal depends on what constitutes normal, and historically the authorities have been reasonably tolerant of people who are worshiping in State, sanctioned churches or communities. But anything outside of those is subject to prosecution now in even people who do worship with him. Those states communities have not always been protected by that status. So it again. It's you know it's just another example of how the authorities reserve. This incredibly arbitrary power to shutdown, essentially whoever they don't like whenever they don't lie, but one of the very disturbing pathologies. Under President? Xi Jinping has been pushed to synthesize religion which essentially means making religion more of a tool for the Chinese Communist Party rather than truly respecting. People's rights to believe the Chinese Communist, party has no respect for the idea that that religious freedom and freedom of belief or individually held their for their for people to have were not have not for government to give or take away. At the top of the Chinese Communist Party. What why does it feel threatened by religions? Well I think because the party sees religion has. Not just an alternative ideology, but it's far more concerned about religion as an alternative organizing vehicle. And it is. It is incredibly NEURALGIA that I mean. It's worth pointing out that it's incredibly neuralgic out. Independent civil society groups were in people whose ethnic identities Result in as much of a sense of commonality with for example communities in Central Asia Atas an identity as a citizen of the PR. But I think you know historically religion in particular and ends of. A sense of of adherence to a different set of principles and particularly for faiths whose leaderships are in different parts of the world. You know the idea that people inside China are have a higher loyalty for example to you the Vatican. Is Not something Beijing likes. Show I will let move to the most striking example of Chinese suspicion of religion at the moment, which is creative. The CCP's treatment, the week in Xinjiang, which is in the fall West Pulse of China in Central Asia Now, of course, the week is a distinct historically in terms of culture, religion and ethnicity from the. Han Chinese majority. How did it come up about the day approach of China in the first place well essentially. The PRC says it had a claim to that particular piece of territory, and it was absorbed into the People's Republic. In nineteen, forty, nine I think what many people are say this way. Some people do advocate independence I think what many people would accept or find acceptable. would be kind of genuine autonomy that. Xinjiang and to that and Hong Kong are meant to enjoy. ever enjoyed this autonomy I mean have the restrictions on. It become recent of beginning on since nineteen forty nine. You're absolutely corrected in. John has never really enjoyed autonomy in any meaningful sense. A and in the last several years we have watched.

Obviously Pope Benedict in writing the letter that he wrote eleven years ago twelve years ago also seemed to understand the situation. So what is it that you think makes this pope not under? Let's go back today year two thousand. Yeah. Before the two thousand. John had a very good collaborator. Not see Tom call. He's comes from Czechoslovakia. And so he knows the communists.

And but then I said the moment, obviously, the government was I wear everything. So the governor was awarded David will be going to to to communicate with home. So in two thousand two events happen when? At the beginning of the year the government plan a ordination of eating maybe up bishops. But actually, it was a failure. Because only five when to said that did Asian, and but anyway, I it was a a act due to threaten the people that they should not obey to to the authority Dini, Rome. At the end of the pope declared the Dessange modest in China and the communist. Stage day campaign. I tell you become pain they called all the bishops to Beijing and to sign a letter of protest against both. Because he was a. Running in pediatrics. Yeah. Those two events.

Mostly they decide up that's the promoter of Ostpolitik under different popes. And so day spa depends of the pope pan. Okay. So this is this is one of the things that Benedict was fighting and probably which caused him to resign. Another words. He was I think he was aware that the situation was bleak that the people around him. In the Vatican. In many ways were not his friends. I would say. The the origination. As because he said that they had really no fee strains and to to carry on the job. Okay. Actually, we may say that people did not obey him, and he was reluctant to use. Yeah. But by that time before you design around the year two thousand ten. There was a rumor that a agreement was ready. Be saying, but is it in? No, nobody's anymore.

"Got some exciting stuff going on here. We just did an interview with Phil Robertson of duck tiny Triarc, all my goodness. Who's the patriarch? You just measure the beard. It is twenty four years longer than the longest beard among his sons. Yes, huge. But I love that man. And do we put that on YouTube? So you can actually go to the Metaxas. Show channel we're going to be putting some of this stuff up on YouTube. It's supposed to be available only to Metaxas. Sewers of Scribner's. If you wanna get everything you go to Metaxas. Super we can go to Metaxas talk dot com and click on the super thing, whatever. But it's like pennies a day, and it's worth it. But Phil Robertson takes the cake right now. However, we're going to be talking to cardinal zen of Hong Kong about the Catholic church in China. And I thought you know, what? I need some before I talked to then I need to talk to John's mirror, and we figured out a way to reach him with the telephone. Oh, he's got a telephone. We got a telephone Graham Bell's folly, we said we're gonna we're gonna try. We're going to figure it out. Yeah. And I think he's on the line now. Joe Johns Mirek come in John, Eric how you you sound like you're right in Texas. That's amazing. How do you do that? Listen, I want to ask you several questions as usual, I fault. It's great to hear your voice at least once a week. Oh, by the way, I got to tell people I was just on with Sebastian Gorka. He's having me on once a week on his radio program, and it's doing so well that it's threatening the ratings on this program. Yes. I can stop doing that. But anyway. Tonight's a state of the union. I wanna talk to you about that, John. But I want to ask you first of all just give us a one minute who is cardinals. Then because he came to me through you on your recommendation, and if the interview doesn't go, well, you're going to take the heat. Well, thank thanks. Sure is is a heroic Representative of the real church in China. And I mean church in the broad sense of Catholic Protestant orthodox those who believe in Jesus Christ. And who believe Christianity something that is independent of the government that is not part of the world. But that stands a thwart the world and challenges worldly power on behalf of the gospel. And he he's a Catholic cardinal from Hong Kong and remember Hong Kong used to be free of China used to be part of Great Britain. It was swallowed by China in nineteen hundred. Ninety seven. The Catholic church in China with essentially outlawed in nineteen forty eight when Mao Tse Tung took over the country of brutal civil war, and the remaining Catholic missionaries, and those who had converted, and, you know, built up the church in China were persecuted went to prison camps mouse, set up a puppet organization called the Chinese Patriotic Association that was consisted of basically people willing to collaborate. Maybe they've been beaten down in prison camps. But they set up this. This this puppet church that would try to corral all the Catholics in China. On behalf of the communist party. Let me let me just interrupt to say. In case, anybody wonders, whether communism is satanic, and whether you should therefore be suspicious mightily suspicious of socialism. All you need to know. Is that communism which spawned socialism, communism, tortured, Christians, and if you collaborated with them they played ball with you. It is right out of the pit of hell when you hear what the communist regime did to Christians in the Soviet Union and in China, especially under Mao Tse Tung, it is so evil, and I just want people to understand there has been real evil in this world in history. And part of the reason I do the program is I want I want everyone to know this. We're talking about satanic evil, really horrifying evil. We're not talking about people saying why if you want to be Christian, you can't get a job if you want to be Christian. We will torture you and your family, and so you're right, John when he described somebody like cardinals Zana's heroic, I want people to know that the man that's going to be on this program in a few minutes is one of the few real heroes. So just a few more words on him. I wanna talk about the state of the union. Yeah. I and pope Francis. Has just signed a deal with the Chinese government legitimising that communist front group as the real Catholic church in China. And and the Catholics who don't really know who've been resisting for all. These decades are now out in the cold. They're being told to go ahead and obey the the people who they regarded as traitors just a few weeks ago. Now, why do you think the pope did that you can have cardinals and his opinion? I think he's a former cardinal. He's going to be more careful you could say. Yeah. I think pope Francis is sympathetic to the political and economic system in China. And I think he wants to our by the church with China against the United States, the west of capital. That's my theory. Not that he's the anti Christ or anything. Okay. Let's move on to something you're supposed to be intelligent and appealing. I forgot about that. I forgot you're right. You're right. My bad my bad, and it's still not kissing. You're right. It's called dead air. Did he faint journalists? Let me listen to me the Beagles will revive you. Eventually. No, I'm sorry. I had I had a glitch in my phone. No. That's okay. It's good. It's good. It created drama tension. People are wondering what happened. I know you're talking about the anti Christ. And suddenly. I mentioned Kissinger in the year window dead. Okay. Listen to. Battery battery on my cordless died and just got a couple of minutes. I want to say that. Tonight is the state of the union. I'm going to be on Twitter. Talking about how Nancy Pelosi will grind her teeth. She's going to be seated obviously right behind the president. Instead of Paul Ryan. Or whoever might be on our side. The new speaker, of course, is going to be grinding her teeth. It's what she does or shifting her dentures. It's going to be a drama. I mean, I'm joking, but it's serious like it's gonna be weird drama tab her sitting right behind him. A lot of people are going to tune in for the draw. Well, I'm going to I'm going to tune in. And I'm going to be tweeting about it. I know John's miracle will be tweeting about it any thoughts on what he's going to do the president tonight. Why heard he's going to have a major pro-life activists present behind, you know, there with him and the audience, and I certainly hope he takes the opportunity to point up how the Democratic Party is falling in behind infanticide. If you want your baby, you can keep your baby. And if not we'll take them out and get rid of them. You know, what it reminds me of like, the one the slave owners would say like, hey, if you don't it's like slavery. Just don't buy one. Let's just let us do what we want. And if you don't wanna slave don't you just turn the channel choice. Okay. I've got a piece about that extreme dot are called. Abortion in America will end badly as slavery debt. And and I hope we can talk about it soon. Because I think what's going to happen is going to be similar what happened in slavery. We're gonna come up with a miserable compromise. I think that that. The crowd the piece you wrote was specially brilliant. And I posted it on Facebook and on Twitter, and it gets a lot of attention. Your stuff always gets a lot of attention as it should weaken. Let's talk about that next week because this issue's not gonna go away, and yours is a very broad. It's an interesting perspective, frankly, and I think we'll be controversial even among pro-lifers. It's very interesting. So let's not go there for for now. But let me let me ask you the most important question of all did, you know that my pillow dot com sponsors this program? I did. And I think that sounds like a great company. All right. Let me just tell you something we're gonna need more enthusiasm from. I suspect I suspect you might not sleep on my pillow. Or maybe you're Beagles. Don't have a my pillow pet bed. Is that is that possible bear culpa? Yeah. Okay. John here. Here's the issue. Listen, we're here to take care of these problems. It's why we're here. We're here for that. Pillows dot com now offers pet beds. Okay. Do you understand your pet will never wake up? Again.

The Catholic church in China was essentially outlawed in one thousand nine hundred forty eight when Mao Tse Tung took over the country of brutal civil war, and the remaining Catholic missionaries, and those who had converted and who built up the church in China were persecuted prison camps mouse, set up a puppet organization called the Chinese Patriotic Association that was consisted of basically people willing to collaborate. Maybe they've been beaten down in prison camps. But they set up this. This this puppet church that would try to corral all the Catholics in China. On behalf of the communist party. Let me let me just interrupt to say. In case, anybody wonders, whether communism is satanic, and whether you should therefore be suspicious mightily suspicious of socialism, all you need to know. Is that communism which spawned socialism communism? Awesome, tortured Christians. And if you collaborated with them they played ball with you. It is right out of the pit of hell when you hear what the communist regime did to Christians in the Soviet Union and in China, especially under Mao Tse Tung, it is so evil, and I just want people to understand there has been real evil in this world in history. And part of the reason I do the program is I want I want everyone to know this. We're talking about satanic evil, really horrifying evil. We're not talking about people saying why if you want to be Christian you can't get a job. We're saying if you want to be Christian, we will torture you and your family, and so you're right, John when you describe somebody like cardinals Zana's heroin. I want people to know that the man that's going to be on this program in a few minutes is one of the few real heroes. So just a few more words on him. And I want to talk about the state of the union. Yeah. I and pope Francis just signed a deal with the Chinese government legitimising that. Communist group as the real Catholic church in China. And and the Catholics who don't really know who've been resisting for all. These decades are now out in the cold. They're being told to go ahead and obey the people who they regarded as traitors just a few weeks ago. Now, why do you think the pope did that? Yeah, you can ask cardinals and his opinion. I think he's a former cardinal. He's going to be more careful. You could save you will. Yeah. I think pope Francis is sympathetic to the political winning conomic system in China. And I think he wants to allied the church with China against the United States, the west and capitalism. That's my theory. Not that he's the anti Christ or anything. Okay. Let's move on to something. Any crisis supposed to be intelligent and appealing. I forgot about that. I forgot you're right. You're right. My bad my bad, and it's still not kissing. You're right. It's called dead air. Did he faint journalists? Lemme. Yeah. Listen to me the Beagles will revive. You know? I'm sorry. I had had a glitch in my phone. No. That's okay. It's good. It's good. It created drama tension. People are wondering what happened. I know you're talking about the anti Christ. And suddenly. I mentioned Kissinger in the head. Okay. Listen to. Battery battery on my cordless die, and we've got a couple of minutes. I want to say that. Tonight is the state of the union. I'm going to be on Twitter talking about how Nancy Pelosi will grind her teeth. She's going to be seated obviously right behind the president. Instead of Paul Ryan. Or whoever might be on our side. The new speaker, of course, is going to be grinding her teeth. It's what she does or shifting her dentures. It's going to be a drama. I mean, I'm joking but serious like it's going to be weird drama Taveres sitting right behind him. A lot of people are going to tune in for the draw. Well, I'm gonna I'm gonna tune in. And I'm going to be tweeting about it. I know John's miracle will be tweeting about it any thoughts on what he's going to do the president tonight. I heard he's going to have a major pro-life activists present behind, you know, there with him and the audience, and I certainly hope takes the opportunity to point out how the Democratic Party is falling in behind infanticide. If you want your baby, you can keep your baby. And if not we'll just take them out and get rid of him. You know, what it reminds me of like when the slave owners would say like, hey, if you don't it's like slavery. Just don't buy one like just let us do what we want. And if you don't wanna slave don't, you know, just turn the channel choice. Okay. I've got a piece about that extreme dot are called. Abortion in America will end badly ESL Avery dead. And and I hope we can talk about it soon. Because I think what's going to happen is going to be similar what happened in slavery. We're going to come up with a miserable compromise. I think that that's. The crowd the piece you wrote was specially brilliant. And I posted it on Facebook and on Twitter, and it gets a lot of attention year stuff. Always gets a lot of attention as it should we? Let's talk about that next week. Because this issue is not going to go away, and yours is a very broad. It's an interesting perspective. Frankly, am I think we'll be controversial even among pro-lifers? It's very interesting. So let's not go there for for now. But let me let me ask you the most important question of all did, you know that my pillow dot com sponsors this program? I did. And I think that sounds like a great company. All right. Let me just tell you something we're gonna need more enthusiasm for. I suspect I suspect you might not sleep on my pillow. Or maybe you're Beagles. Don't have a my pillow pet bed. Is that is that possible may of culpa? Yeah. Okay. John here. Here's the issue. Listen, we're here to take care of these problems. It's why we're here. We're here for that pillows dot com now offers pet beds. Okay. You understand your pet will never wake up. Again. This stuff is so powerful because he has engineered this stuff that your pet will slip into a coma. And you won't even know it. And I'm telling you, Mike Lindell needs to pull the technology back because it's causing problems people are losing jobs and stuff they just sleep and sleep. It's very very high.
