"Specific to our witnesses, we take incredibly seriously the safety and security of those individuals who have testified before us and like the vice chair said we ask witnesses routinely whether they could have had outreach from other members of the former administration. Yeah, where's Mitch McConnell calling for lifetime protection for Cassidy Hutchinson, right? I mean, I mean, what she had to have endured to even have the courage to do that, Dana, I mean amazing. Yeah, no, absolutely. I will see what happens. You know, there's a lot of different speculation of why she came forward. There's rumor on the Twitter sphere that she's going to go work for desantis. Is she doing this to take Trump down? So desantis can be the president, like there's all kinds of fun speculation that's all it is. But in this moment, she implicated Mark Meadows directly. In this moment, you know, Patsy Bologna as the closed captioning would call pat cipollone is now subpoenaed. Like her testimony shifted the trajectory of these hearings and I really looking forward to saying what's next because it just seems to keep getting better. And I hope he has half her courage, Dana. I mean, there was speculation earlier that that's what he's waiting for is some people want the cover of a subpoena so they don't look like they're willingly cooperating on one last Aguilar. Has it been referred to the Department of Justice? I'm not going to talk about the investigative steps that we've taken. But what I will say is, I think that those statements speak for themselves, the words that vice chair Cheney put up on the screen and that the committee is aware of. I think is something that is dangerous behavior. I often think of you and Alison gill like me and Jodi Hamilton like they're the ones holding us back by our shirts while we're like, come on, DoJ, let's go. Let's go. Because I know else counsels patience. But I think the story this morning, the DoJ was blindsided by case Cassidy Hutchinson testimony was a little. I get that they're not sharing stuff yet because they're J 6 says they're not done with their, you know, when I get that they're sort of parallel in some cases not competing, but whatever investigations. It is a little startling that they were startled. It is, but that, you know, as many places are up in the air right now, I think they're just trying not to drop and break one. So I actually don't have any, like I'm not startled by any of that in the sense of like, well, we're just going to see. These are two very, very important investigations that are going on in tandem and that have everything to do with each other and nothing to do with each other, which I imagine is really hard to balance. Yeah, yeah. Liberal helpers schooling on Twitter says has anyone tried telling Trump his televised trial will be bigger than OJ? I think that might work. Huge. It's a huge take a chance. Not just at the century, but every glove's too big in his trial, every glove, every glove is too big. That's a tiny hand joke and I'm here for it. Okay. In a Goldberg is delightful.

"Donald Trump knew that the protesters had weapons and encouraged them to go to the capitol anyway. That was stunning to me. I have been defending the president over the course of the last year, even though I quit my job over the way he conducted himself during the ride. I never really thought until yesterday that he was even capable of inciting the riot, but if he knew those weapons were there and said, they're not here for me. Let's go down to the capitol. That is problematic for the president. If there's a direct line from the Proud Boys oath keepers right wing extremist groups into The White House, that's a problem for the president and Cassidy Hutchinson mentions yesterday for the first time that Mark Meadows was in communication with those folks.

"And human safety. This is AP news. I'm Rita foley. President Biden's talking about abortion, laws, Russia's war in Ukraine and a number of other things this morning. He just spoke to reporters as the NATO summit winds up in Madrid. We are going to support Ukraine as long as it takes. His prediction for how Russia's war in Ukraine ends. I don't know what how it's going to end, but it will not end with a Russian defeat of Ukraine in Ukraine. And on the controversial subject of abortion, now that the Supreme Court has overturned roe versus wade. I believe we have to codify roe V wade in the law and the way to do that is to make sure the Congress votes to do that. And if the filibuster gets in the way, it's like voting rights, it should be we provide an exception for this. The president leaving the NATO summit now returning home. A new AP poll shows about half of Americans say former president Trump should be charged with a crime for his role in what happened on January 6th. The house January 6th committee subpoenaed pat cipollone, a top Trump era White House lawyer, the AP's Mike Gracia. The subpoena was issued one day after former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson testified that cipollone warned against then president Donald Trump going to the capitol with thousands of his supporters. We're going to get charges every crime imaginable if we make that movement happen. And do you remember which crimes mister cipollone was concerned with? In the days leading up to the 6, we had conversations about potentially obstructing justice or defrauding the electoral account. Cipollone gave the committee an informal interview on April 13th, but he has refused to provide on the record a testimony. Mike Gracia, Washington.

Fresh update on "cassidy" discussed on Morning Edition
"The globe, zoom how the world connects. This is morning edition from NPR news. I'm Rachel Martin in Washington, D.C.. And I'm a Martinez and Culver City, California. After weeks of calling for former White House counsel passive to cooperate, the House committee investigating the January 6th attack on the capitol finally issued a subpoena from last night. The committee is asking cipollone to appear for a deposition next week. And the subpoena comes the day after former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson offered starling testimony under oath. She recounted how cipollone tried repeatedly to block former president Trump's efforts to disrupt the electoral count to formally elect president Joe Biden. NPR correspondent Susan Davis joins us now. Why this subpoena only issued now so? Well, it looks like the committee tried to do it the easy way, and now they're going to do it the hard way. You know, cipollone has spoken with them. He appeared voluntarily in an informal capacity back in April, but in a letter to cipollone, the committee says he has refused all efforts to cooperate since then. And he's refused to provide any on the record testimony. So they say they were left with no other choice. Now, cipollone hasn't responded to the subpoena. It's not clear if he will actually appear, but defying a congressional subpoena could open the door to possible legal action against him if he chose that. All right, so what do they want to ask the Bologna about? Well, the committee says he has direct knowledge of president Trump's involvement in a lot of efforts to subvert the 2020 election, including trying to submit fake ballots to Congress, trying to politicize the Justice Department, and of course the president's role on the capitol attack. In her testimony on Tuesday, Hutchinson repeatedly invokes cipollone's name, she testified under oath that he was a key figure inside The White House trying to stop Trump from going to the capitol on January 6th. Now, Trump did not go to the capitol on January 6th. She said he asked her to help make sure it didn't happen, saying, quote, we're going to get charged with every crime imaginable if we make that movement happen. She also testified that simple and he pleaded with Trump and his chief of staff Mark Meadows to do more to stop the violence once the ride at the capitol was underway. I haven't other people who have testified before the committee also offer testimony on Simone's actions right around that time. Yeah, I mean, former former Justice Department officials testified that he backed up their efforts to block Trump from appointing Jeffrey Clark to run the department. Clark was willing to illegally try to aid Trump's efforts to overturn the election from there. And former campaign adjacent Miller testified that cipollone also confronted Trump lawyer John eastman over his theory that vice president Pence had the authority to stop the electoral count. He did not have that authority and cipollone said it was crazy. So it seems to me that this paints a picture of someone who tried to uphold the law until the president to do the same. Why resist and cooperating with the committee? That has certainly been the view of Wyoming Republican congresswoman Liz Cheney. She's the panel's co chair. She has said publicly that the committee's evidence shows that cipollone and his office tried to do quote the right thing. She also said she thinks the public should hear it from him directly. You know, there are probably some questions here about executive privilege, attorney client privilege, and the kind of things he can be compelled to say or not say. If he engages with the committee, it's possible he might not appear next week, but they could schedule it at a later date. This might take some lawyering, but really this is not about pets Bologna. This is about Donald Trump. I mean, the committee has been building a very public, very provocative case that a sitting president tried to subvert the peaceful transfer of power. And they've also relied really heavily on Republican witnesses to make their case. I mean, Trump's White House counsel who was there for all of it would be able to provide valuable insight into the president's state of mind and his intentions at the time. That's NPR correspondent Susan Davis, Susan, thanks a lot. You're welcome. We're

Cassidy Hutchinson's Hearsay Testimony About Trump
"When you return to The White House in the motorcade after the president's speech where did you go When I returned to The White House I walked upstairs towards chief of staff's office and I noticed mister Renato lingering outside of the office Once we had made eye contact he quickly waved me to go into his office which was dressed across the hall for mine When I went in he shot the door and I noticed I want you to listen to the explicit detail To the explicit detail Mister annatto is a Secret Service agent at The White House Famous Anthony Tony He saw her and he waved her into his office A junior Stanford Go ahead Mister Trump's security detail sitting in a chair looking somewhat discombobulated and a little lost There's a Secret Service agent on the president's detail looking discombobulated and a little lost So who better to call in than miss hutchison Go ahead Did you hear what happened in the beast I said no Tony I just got back What happened Tony proceeded to tell me that when the president got in the beast he was under the impression from mister Meadows that the off the record movement to the capitol was still possible and likely to happen but that Bobby had more information So once the president had gotten into the vehicle with Bobby he thought that they were going up to the capitol and when Bobby had relayed to him or not you don't have the assets to do it It's not secure So the president the president gets into the beast his vehicle And he still thinks he can go to the capitol But he's told by the agent there Bobby No you can't I find this perplexing don't you mister producer Why would the president get into a vehicle thinking he can go to the capitol but he can't So what did they do Go to McDonald's
The Show Trial for the Invented Insurrection With Will Chamberlain
"Well, I'm delighted to be back sitting in for Seb doing America first radio, and even more delighted to now have in the chair. One of my favorite lawyers, which is admittedly a short list. I think it's pretty much you and schlichter. But Wilt Chamberlain is here. And I would love will to get your opinion of just how brutally effective the show trial for the invented insurrection has been at throwing the trader Trump into the brink. He's going to jail, right? Well, I think there's so many different problems. We just start with yesterday what happened with Cassidy Hutchinson. I remember watching Fox News and hearing Brett, tell me, oh, this is devastating. Did you hear? This is devastating testimony, and it's like clearly you've never seen a trial because the first thing you notice is it's hearsay. She's almost very rarely is she testifying even to a conversation she herself heard most of the talk is about someone else told her that Trump said X and that's not just hearsay, it's actually what we call double hearsay. The hearsay statement of Trump being offered for whatever the truth of that it was asserted. And then there's the hearsay statement of the person gossiping, right? So you have these it's the legal standard for gossip. We got hearsay, double hearsay, gossip. BS, which is what it seems. And so, you know, it's not that all hearsay statements are inadmissible. There are actually a lot of exceptions to the hearsay rule. But this is the classic example of why we have a hearsay rule, right? You have this woman saying, well, I heard that Trump grabbed the Stuart, you know, this guy, this guy told me Trump grab the steering wheel, and then you realize, well, that's not even possible. And then within an hour of the testimony, it comes out that the Secret Service agents are perfectly willing to say under oath, no, that never happened.
Grand Theft Auto: Capitol City?
"Here's Cassidy Hutchinson saying that Donald Trump tried to create a new saga in the Grand Theft Auto series, otherwise known as Grand Theft Auto capital city. Play cut 70. Tony described him as being irate, the president said something to the effect of, I'm the effing president, take me up to the capitol now to which Bobby responded, sir, we have to go back to the west wing. The president reached up towards the front of the vehicle to grab at the steering wheel. Mister engel grabbed his arm, he said, sir, you need to take your hand off the steering wheel. We're going back to the west wing. We're not going to the capitol. Mister Trump then used his free hand to lunge towards Bobby angle and this one mister ornata had recounted the story to me. He had motioned towards his clavicles. So that's a really serious accusation, right? I mean, you have a president of the United States that assaults the Secret Service agents. I mean, that's serious. I mean, wow. And by the way, who uses the word clavicles. Assaulted me in the clavicles, the first thing you say, wait, is that like super anatomically specific, by the way? Unless you're trained to say that she was trained in coached, I think, to say that. So okay, fine. She says this, super serious accusation. And I knew it as soon as I heard, it's just like, there's no way that's true. No way. I've been in the beast. You can't do that. And by the way, it's just not something I believe Donald Trump would do otherwise.
We Need to Talk About Cassidy Hutchinson...
"Yesterday, with an urgent pace, the committee put together a surprise hearing with a White House aide, her name Cassidy Hutchinson. Now I'd never heard of Cassidy Hutchinson before, I knew a lot of people in The White House. I knew a different Cassidy who's one of the sweetest person people ever who worked in The White House and was super loyal to the country and loyal president Trump. But this Cassidy, I had never heard of. Fine, whatever. I didn't know everyone in The White House. I didn't work there. Just did some projects and happened to visit more times than not. So this person comes up and she starts to testify. And she says some very, very serious things. She says some things such as, for example, the kind of scintillating news grabbing headline was the one that Donald Trump tried to hijack the presidential motorcade, otherwise known as the beast. That Donald Trump and all of his fury and all of his anger was so upset with what was happening. He wanted to go to the capitol so badly that Donald Trump put his hand on the collar of a Secret Service agent tried to take the steering wheel of the car and the Secret Service had to push him back. I mean, I heard this, I said, wow, that's quite an accusation. Cassidy, have you ever been in the beast before? Because I have. And that's literally impossible to do. I was thinking this while I was hosting the show yesterday, because again, I'm processing all this. I said, I'm not going to cover this until I have time to really let all this set in, by the way, previously I was more immature with the way I reacted to things like I did with Covington, I would like to think this is a mature response. You wait a day. Do you think about it? You process it, you study it, you examine it. That's what adults do. Children immediately like, wow, oh my goodness, see hijack the beast. I can't believe it. And then all it takes is someone to say, wait hold on a second. You can't do that. There's a separation wall between the passengers and the Secret Service. It's physically impossible.
A Lesson in NOT Falling for the Media Hype
"Many different stories where the media went instantaneously into accusation mode and full transparency. One of the great teaching moments, one of the great learning moments for me personally. Was in either January or February of 2019, I think is January. The Covington kid deal. With Nicholas Sandman, where I was doing too many things at once, I was spending far too much time on Twitter, and I tweeted something such as the Covington kids shouldn't have behaved the way they did. A stupid, dumb thing to tweet, because I didn't let all the facts come through. I didn't actually check the premise. I didn't challenge the media narrative. And that was such a teaching moment for me in a learning moment. I said, what am I doing here? Just kind of going along with the narrative for the narrative's sake. And I wrote a whole op-ed about it, but I actually learned from it. I decided that I was never going to do that again. I said, I'm not going to kind of ready fire aim. I said, we're just going to kind of let the facts come out. And I also learned that, man, when the media becomes so enthusiastic and so passionate about something so quickly, there's probably something there withholding from us. And then a couple months later, the Mueller report came out and it showed that Trump collusion was all a lie. And as I was growing in the movement and growing as a commentator and growing as a podcaster and growing as a host and growing as a leader of turning point USA, I said to myself, man, the next time the media wants me to get so excited about something, I'm just not gonna do it. And I'm quite
Caller Who Attended Jan. 6 Never Saw a Gun, Knife or Threat
"When I got to the capitol time and amongst the crowd and I was there for several hours, I never once saw a gun, I never once saw a knife, I never once saw anybody communicate in a threat either as someone in attendance or a capitol police officer. I never heard one person say, let's go burn it down. Nothing at all like that. So Charles, here's what gets me. Charles here's what gets me. About the AR-15s, because Cassidy Hutchinson, she says that she heard from somebody who heard from somebody that there were people armed with AR-15s all over the place. My question is, okay, well, why didn't the D.C. police department step in? If in fact, the D.C. police saw these weapons, that's a crime those kinds of weapons are illegal in Washington, D.C., so why didn't they intervene? Exactly. And I can tell you that the police department was around the capital, hundreds of them, and you're exactly right. If a cop stall, somebody walking with an AR-15, they're going to either arrest them, or they're going to take them out. And if the crowd was so heavily armed, why weren't any weapons confiscated, why weren't any police officers shot by the protesters? The only people that died that day were all Trump supporters. And the only person shot was actually by that. And they know it's a lot. And I don't think that this committee is what they're doing is designed to reveal the truth is just designed to do damage to Donald Trump. But here's my thing. All these little lies that they tell and they told over the last four years, they get away with it. There's never accountability. And my hope is that when the Republicans take control in November, that we not only launch investigative committees on January 6th, but also on November 3rd, 2020.
Is the Jan. 6 Committee Inducing Witnesses to Lie?
"Now again, it's one thing if they're saying this now if there were feuding this now, but if they were a feud under oath, somebody's lying. And somebody needs to go to jail. And there's a broader question. I was talking to my good buddy, Steve gill. He's a great political analyst, and he's been doing this a very long time. He said, Todd, not only is somebody not telling the truth, it's very possible that some of the committee members may be suborning perjury. In other words, they are inducing somebody to lie under oath, and that somebody is Cassidy, Hutchinson. Now, you gotta work with me here. You saw her live testimony, but there was also pre recorded testimony of Cassidy Hutchinson. In other words, they had already interviewed her, so they knew exactly what she was going to say when the TV cameras came on, and this went boarded a border coast to coast across the fruited plain. So they knew this well in advance. These are no doubt these are explosive charges. I mean, if in fact this is true, you are dealing with a lunatic in The White House who was trying to hijack the presidential limousine and was literally attacking physically attacking Secret Service agents. I mean, that's insane. That's like a made for TV movie. If it happened. But I don't think it happened, but I think we all know it didn't happen.
Cassidy Hutchinson Testifies Against Trump
"The junior aide, all of 25 years old, so she would have been what 23 when she saw all of this allegedly go down or at least that's what she heard go down on January the 6th. Cut 15. Related to him were not, but you don't have the assets to do it. It's not secure. We're going back to the west wing. The president had very strong, very angry response to that. Tony described him as being irate. The president said something to the effect of, I'm the effing president, take me up to the capitol now. To which Bobby responded, sir, we have to go back to the west wing. The president reached up towards the front of the vehicle to grab at the steering wheel. Mister engel grabbed his arm, he said, sir, you need to take your hand off the steering wheel. We're going back to the west wing. We're not going to the capitol. Mister Trump then used his free hand to lunge towards Bobby engel and mister renata had recounted the stories to me. He had motioned towards his clavicles.
In a Constitutional Republic, We Have Adversarial Hearings
"That's why in the United States in a constitutional republic we have adversarial hearings Adversarial hearings where you're allowed to cross examine and confront your accuser Why Because if someone with even basic knowledge of the Secret Service or anything else was allowed to confront Cassidy Hutchinson yesterday she would have looked like a fool Instead because it's not adversarial and it's the damn star chamber Where Liz Cheney gets to say whatever she wants and Trump and his team don't get to defend themselves Cassidy gets to say what she has to say and we have to use this microphone the next day outside of the hearing to refute using basic facts like I did in the first hour and like I just tweeted out and put on true social Basic facts to show you how the story she told yesterday is ridiculous and a bunch of suckers fell for it
Video Conflicts With Cassidy Hutchinson's Story About Trump & Limo
"But I just playing this so you know it exists There you're going to hear the audio of it This is the audio of January 6th It's attached to a video She clearly can't see but the video is a president Trump getting back into what we would call the Camp David package the camps But you would call an SUV suburban right He's not even in the limo which Cassidy says she was told was the beast So the story can't possibly be true because we have the darn video Just play a few seconds This is real not a joke This is actual video but you'll hear the audio from it All right come back to me Now let's not play in YMCA so everybody does the YMCA dance That was playing there while the president pulled away in the SUVs You can watch the video on my rumble account It's a C span video No one disputes its authenticity So before Geraldo awards the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Cassidy Hutchinson he's an actual lawyer and other journalists too Claim how wonderful and persuasive she was maybe check basic facts Like hey she said she was told he got in the limo but he didn't get in the limo What you call ridiculously the beast he got into camps So how would a Secret Service agent like Tony ornato 20 years plus in the Secret Service screw that up And then call it something Nobody calls it the beast So he gets the car wrong and the name Come on man
A Deeper Look at Cassidy Hutchinson's 'Bombshell' Testimony
"The latest witness call by the January 6th committee was Cassidy Hutchinson and aid or former aide to Mark Meadows, who was the chief of staff under Trump. And Cassidy Hutchinson's testimony was immediately hailed by the media. And in fact, even by some on the right, I mean, I'm thinking of Andy McCarthy at national review, very compelling Brett bear, of course, yes, he was completely convinced completely on board. Crushing testimony and so on in the media, of course, was hailing this. She's sort of the latest savior. On the supposedly with the Republican tag. This was part of the game. You bring in people who are nominally Republican, you say, look, even a Republican says. And she put out a whole bunch of stuff. I mean, a good bit of it was just hearsay things that she had heard of things that she had been told. But it was sufficiently salacious, sufficiently bombshell ish that the media glommed right onto them, specifically two things. One is it supposedly at one point Trump got so upset, upset when Barr told him that he had lost the election that he flung his food, presumably a hamburger, Trump's favorite, up against the wall, leaving some ketchup on the wall and Cassidy Hutchinson, I had to clean it up. Now, when I first heard this, I literally chuckled because first of all, it's hard for me to see Trump doing that, but you know what, to be honest, if an election was stolen from me under my nose, I would be a little irate. I don't think I'd have thrown a burger against the wall. I think I like burgers too much, but my comment on Twitter was, do we have the full story on this if Trump really threw the burger and fell on the ground? Did Bill Barr like reach down and eat it? Hard for me to see Bill Barr turning down a burger. And but in any event, Trump, of course, was extremely scornful and Trump makes the comment on truth social. He goes, why would she have to clean it up? First of all, she does she was not a member of my staff. He goes, I don't even know who she was. And then the supposedly the big bombshell was an anecdote and incident about Trump who wanted to go to the capitol. On January 6th and was so apparently enraged that the Secret Service was reluctant to take him that he reached over and tried to grab the steering wheel of the car. Now at first people were like, I think Cassidy Hutchinson may even have said it. This was actually the so called the beast, the big limousine, the Trump limousine. And if that was the case, this would be flat out impossible.
Hard-line conservative Reps. Boebert, Miller win primaries
"To have Congress's staunchest conservatives repelled more centrist alternatives to lock up Republican nominations on Tuesday in Colorado one of former president Trump's most Ardent supporters representative Lauren boebert won the nomination in the third congressional district while election denied or Tina Peters lost her bid to become the Republican nominee for Secretary of State to Pam Anderson and a Republican who favors some abortion access Joe O'Day won the Senate primary against a far right candidate in Mississippi a member of Congress who voted to overturn the 2020 election but supported a January 6th the investigation won the Republican runoff in the third congressional district representative Michael guest defeated pro Trump challenger Michael Cassidy in Illinois far right state senator Darren Bailey who got a late endorsement from Trump won the Republican nomination for governor he faces democratic incumbent governor JD pritzker representative Mary Miller a 2020 election denier who has spoken admiringly of Adolf Hitler won her Republican primary and reverend Jesse Jackson's son Jonathan won a 17 candidate democratic primary for an open congressional seat in New York Rudy Giuliani's son Andrew a former Trump White House aide lost the Republican primary for governor to representative Lee zeldin He will take on governor Kathy hochul who won her democratic primary I'm Julie Walker
Did Trump Take the Wheel Like Cassidy Hutchinson Said?
"Hutchinson was an aide to former White House chief of staff, Mark Meadows, at prick, and she testified about Trump's actions to the special congressional committee investigating the rights. So Trump promised during his speech on January 6th to march to Capitol Hill with his supporters to protest Congress certifying the 2020 election results. That we all know. But when the president was told by a security detail that they would not take him to the capitol, he got upset. Apparently they were told, they told him they've got guns, and he said, I don't care that I hear the shoot me. Let's get to the capitol. So Hutchinson testified with a very straight face. And this is the kind of people, this is the kind of person the left just loves. The kind of person that comes out of the woodwork to make these crazy charges and the left thinks she's got no book to sell. She's not trying to get a job at MSNBC. She must be real. No, no, no. Hold your horses. So Hutchinson said that Trump told his security detail the president said something to the effect of on the effing president, take me up to Capitol Hill now. And then he lunged at the steering wheel, and that's the story or not all told her. She also said Trump used his free hand to lunge at his security detail. When mister owner actor or not to had recounted this story to me, he had motioned towards his clavicle. Hutchinson's testimony is offering new alleged details, obviously, about the president's actions on that day. As the Democrat led committee continues to try to paint Trump as an unhinged lunatic who poses a serious threat to American democracy, they're just scared shit, he's going to run again and really kick some tables over. She was not physically present for the events. He described, but based her testimony on hearsay, she got from a member of the Secret Service. I can't do that. Where is Johnny Depp's lawyer right now? Objection hearsay. Objection leading. We need Camille Vasquez. Well, listen, you PEEP on the left, hold your tongues and push back your victory party. Because I'm hearing now in the last few minutes that the Secret Service in question offered to testify under oath that the story about Trump trying to commandeer the assault commandeer that the assault and attempt to attempt to steer the beast never happened.

"Welcome to another edition of Opening God's Word I'm Janet Cassidy. Let's get right at it. The words of today's reading our words we could use today in the midst of this pandemic, as the disciples of Jesus followed him into a boat, a storm came up, and they woke him up, pleading Lord Save Us, we are perishing, and what was the response Jesus gave them. Why are you terrified? o You of little faith. Then he calmed the winds, and the C. which amazed the disciples who were left to humbly ask what sort of man is this? Whom even the winds in the Co Bay I think the idea of being terrified comes pretty close to how a lot of us feel today as the number of cases of the Corona virus surge throughout our beloved states and the whole world, there is definitely a fear of perishing as we watch the daily news reports, but what we don't want to miss is the fact that even in the midst of this health crisis God is not abandoned us. As an every event in our life, he is in the middle of the mess. The father was with Jesus during his passion death. We have to remember. He was in Mary's heartbreak. He's been in foxholes entrenches in every war. The father is with us in every out the suffering and sadness we experience. He understands us because he created us. The question that always arises from this is. Why doesn't he do something to stop it? For sure God does not force pain and suffering on us. That doesn't make sense when you consider that he is love and mercy incarnate. Why would he force suffering on us? But he does allow it i. have frequently talked about this. This idea of free will in our exercise of it. It is on display today. As the great mask divide roles forward, some people oppose wearing masks other people they embrace it our leaders. Some of them encourage us to do what will keep us in other safe from harm. Others don't but frankly some people simply cannot be saved from themselves in exercise of our free will, if our impulse is to act against common sense, and for the good of others putting them at risk. Rather than using wisdom this must leave. God's scratching his head. But. That's the beauty and ugliness of free will, isn't it? If God treated us like puppets on a string and directed every move, it would change. US fundamentally love would not exist except in God himself because love only. In our humanity as a free choice, it cannot be something forced. If it were forced, it wouldn't be love. God has given us the free will to choose good. But he must allow it when we choose bad. It really is up to us to differentiate between the two, and it shouldn't be that hard when you consider the groundwork. God has already laid down for us. It is up to us to follow it. I'm Janet Cassidy. Thank you for listening I. Hope You have a blessed day.

"I'm Janet Cassidy. Thank you for joining me today. For another edition of Opening God's word years ago I heard a chastity speaker talking about love. Her example stuck with me. She often talked to teenagers and was trying to help them understand different ways. That people think they're in love and she said you know there's such a thing as a pepperoni pizza love and then there's a love where you would die for someone she said with a pepperoni pizza. Love you might say. Oh that satisfies me so much and I just look forward to it and I love it so much but true love. True love is different. True love is where I give up my life for someone. Jesus talks about that today. In the gospel of John Chapter Fifteen. He says he chose us. We don't choose HIM IN AND CHOOSING US. What did he do? He laid down his life. He says no one has greater love than this to lay down one's life for one's friends. You are my friends. When think of loving each other loving our neighbor we might not have to die for them but we do need to think about how to serve and if we can serve if our actions can be expressions of love then that is a great love sometimes in the ordinariness of life. That's what we're called to do. Maybe we have to do something for someone that we don't really feel like doing. Maybe this love this true. Love looks selfless. This is not a pepperoni pizza. Type of love that Jesus is talking about when he tells us to love one another now not at all. This is true self giving love and for you and I it might really just be in the ordinary things of daily life. So I want you to think about that today and think about how you might serve someone else in a way.

"They step out of line ladies step out of line. I WanNa talk to you today. In edition of Cassidy comments about that phrase for joining me. I didn't even watch the EMMYS this year but I heard about the speech by actress. Alex Pristine Burstein told a quick story about her grandmother. Who was a Holocaust survivor? She said that when her grandmother was in line to be shot into a pit she asked the guard. What would happen if I stepped out of line? He told her he didn't have the heart to shooter. But somebody would so. She stepped out of line and lived. What a powerful story about one woman's courage. Her grandmother took a chance to stand up against evil and not only live to tell about it but ushered a new generation to life like Burstein said neither she nor her children would be here if it wasn't for her grandmother's courage to be able to do that. To be able to step out of line is to brave. The unknown in that moment her grandmother took a risk which put her life in immediate danger but of course her life was already in immediate danger. Her choice was between certain death if she didn't step out of line in a glimmer of hope that if she did maybe just maybe she would have a chance at living. What were the odds that she would have survived such a daring act? What really amazes me is how quickly she must have made her decision. She probably didn't have any time to think it. Through to analyze the pros and cons really way her decision she just out of sheer courage with a dash of hope. Will you be ready to step out of line? If you must as a disciple of Christ it may be as great as martyrdom or as simple as being the first to speak of your faith among friends or strangers but the key is to prepare yourself now so that when or if the time comes you will be ready. Thank you for listening. I'M JANET CASSIDY I hope. You have a blessed day in God's word..

"Merry Christmas yes. We can still say. Merry Christmas even though. It's December twenty sixth the day after Christmas because we are in the Christmas season now. What a wonderful wonderful place to be? We are also in the Gospel of Matthew Chapter Ten and Jesus has sent his his apostles out on on a mission. Russian and he's commissioned them and were here around Verse Sixteen Coming Persecutions. He's warning them. I'm sending you out it's not going to be rosy your going going to be like sheep. Among the wolves they're going to hand you over to the courts are gonNA scourge you in the synagogues. Wow boy that sounds like a lot of fun doesn't it. But it's important to know that there is suffering and sacrifice as disciples of Christ right so I want to focus rate in verse nineteen eighteen when they hand you over. Do not worry about how you are to speak or what you are to say you will be given at that moment what you are to say for it. It will not be you who speak but the spirit of your father speaking through you. Let's focus on that. Lots of disciples out there today. Potential Henschel disciples who are saying. Well I can't talk about Jesus you know I don't know enough and you know I don't WanNa get into an argument which which is smart. You don't want to get into an argument with someone but you know I just don't know enough to hold my own when somebody starts throwing scripture at me or they start you you know saying things that I don't understand it's too far over my head but listen to this. Do not worry about how you are to speak or what you are to say because see God is with you. In that moment he will help you find the right words. A lot of people say I wrote something I said something and wow wow. That wasn't me. I don't know where that came from. This is where it came from God. The father he will raise up the words that you have he will raise them up and they will land hopefully with a lot of meaning and impact for the person you are in conversation with so if you get into that conversation about out. Faith don't be afraid because God is with you and if you know the father well if you're in prayer and and you have a real sense of who you you are in relationship to God then you're going to understand the father and he is going to be able to speak through you with love and kindness but with honesty so we've got to remember that we are called to speak the truth even in the face of conflict that doesn't mean we fight and argue about scripture scripture and all that it just means that we are bringing Christ into the world and we are helping others see and maybe being drawn onto him through the faith that we express as well. So that's a good word is. We started out this Christmas season. Continue to say. Merry Christmas to the people because this is the time of Christ right. I hope you have a blessed. And God's Word I'm Janet Cassidy. Thank you for listening..

"Today I wanNA reflect on the him. Oh come come Emmanuel. We're familiar with that. We hear all the time as we're moving into The days closer closer to Christmas but listen to what it's saying oh come on comey manual and ransom captive Israel that mourns and lonely exile here until the son of God appear. I was thinking about this when I was reflecting on it this morning. That we are like light captive Israel right we are actually in exile from God. We're captive emptive here on earth. We're not with God in heaven where we are called to be so we're morning in lonely. Only exile right until God appears and then when Christ comes again we are freed to be with him. How amazing that is this him that we sort of take for granted because we hear all the time is amazing? Amazing Oh come now. Wisdom from on high who orders off things mightily. Do you believe that God orders all things things mightily you should. He is the one who put this earth into motion who created this world. Who created did you and he did it in an orderly way and so now we're waiting we're holding our breath waiting for Christ to to come and free us from this exile from him because we're not fully with him as we should be because of our our sinfulness right and so we try as hard as we can to move towards purity in this life and one day we will be with God God but we shouldn't plan on doing that any sooner then? He calls US home so we don't rush into that. So in the meantime meantime like Israelites. who were in exile in Babylon we to make do the best weekend in exile that we are experiencing? I hope you're enjoying these days growing closer to Christmas. I thank you for being with me a listening and I pray that you have a blessed day in God's Word I'm Janet Cassidy thank you for being with me..

"Mary that she is going to be with child. But I WANNA take a side track today. I WanNa go backwards. I WANNA go back to last Sunday's reading the letter of James when my husband and I were doing our advent devotion this goddess into a pretty good discussion. I'd like to share a little bit of it with you. Chapter five verse. Seven letter of James says be patient therefore brothers until the coming of the Lord so my husband and I started talking about this coming of the Lord for now. We know that this reading is appropriate as we look towards Christmas and the coming of the birth of the savior of the world but we also talked talked about how at that time people were expecting that second coming of Jesus to happen any day. It could be any minute right and so we started talking about in. This is my question to you is how do we live our lives knowing. That Christ is coming coming but we don't know when could it be today. Could it be tomorrow yes. Of course it could. What would Christ find you doing when he comes? uh-huh back would he find you ready. See we we. Don't imagine really that Christ might show up later. Ron Tonight or tomorrow so we kind of live as if we've got all kinds of time and then it's just some day we're going to meet our maker but wait a minute. What is is he going to find you doing? I want you to take this question very seriously. A friend of mine years ago we rent a discussion. We were in our twenties and and it was her idea that it was not okay to ever go to a bar K.. That was her thought and she said this over probably twenty thirty years ago to me. She said if God comes that's not where I want him to find me now. I'm not arguing. Go to a bar. Don't go to a bar. My point is it was a good question then and and it's a good question today. God shows up. What do you want him to find you doing? My first thoughts turned to. Wow if Jesus is coming tomorrow I'VE GOTTA get busy pouring out love responding to needs stop being selfish and thinking about things that don't don't matter. I want you to take a few minutes in this letter to James Chapter five verse seven be patient therefore brothers until the coming of the Lord so we've got to be patient but we have to be diligent and prepare our hearts and this is a perfect time during advent to be thinking about that. We're all waiting. We're all excited. The Birth of Christ is coming so let's focus on that and let it change and transform our lives when we encounter the saviour of the world. I'm Janet Cassidy I hope you have a blessed day in God's Word Thank you for listening..

"Here we are just a few days before Christmas. The Birth of Christ an angel. Gabriel is so busy in these readings for this week. Were Right in the gospel of Luke Chapter One. Today they're talking about John. The baptist Zachariah is of the priestly class and he has been taking his turn in the sanctuary and he goes into the sanctuary to light. The incense in there is an angel standing next to him informing him that he and his wife Elizabeth in their old age are going to conceive a son and of course Zachariah wanted to know how this is going to happen and as the story unfolds. He is discovered to be mute when he comes out he cannot speak and eventually he Gains his voice back when he names his son. John this is John John the Baptist and this is Gabriel the same angel that comes to marry in announces that she is going to conceive. Jesus so now we've got John. Jesus their cousins uh-huh and they're both conceived one in old age with Zachariah Elizabeth and when he comes out of the sanctuary the people for realize he's seen a vision because he cannot speak but as the story unfolds. He gets his voice back when he names his son John and so we we have a beautiful opportunity this week to step out of all that business. I I know you're doing your end of days shopping just before Christmas. I'm doing the same thing but we need to be focused. We need to stay true to to what this is even all about and so we need to get into that story that prepares us for the coming of Christ in so you want to go and look in the gospel of Luke Chapter One and start reading that infancy narrative. You will be blessed. You will be blessed as you discover John in Jesus one more thing I want to mention about these narratives about John. Jesus when the Angel Gabriel comes to marry when the Angel Gabriel comes to Zachariah what does he say. Do not be afraid. I want you to hang onto those words over the next few days especially hang onto that God himself sent an angel to remind men not to be afraid. So whatever. You've got going in your life right now that might be causing you a lot of stress take it from God himself that he is with us right. Jesus name as we mentioned before Emanuel means God is with us so take that God is with us in put it together with the do not be afraid from these infancy narratives and cling to that no matter what is going on in your life and I encourage you again again every day. Stay Christo centric. Stay focused on Christ. Do not be distracted. This is the coming of the savior of the world and it is a time for us to be rejoicing. I hope you have a blessed day. In God's word thank you for joining me. I'm Janet Cassidy have a happy advent..

"In today's reading in Luke Chapter Nineteen. We have another person seeking out. Jesus yesterday we heard about the blind beggar today at Zacchaeus. And here's here's what's interesting when Jesus sees a KIA's up in the sycamore tree. He says to him come down I am going to stay at your house. The shacks everybody he staying at the House of the center this tax collector. What's up with that? That doesn't make any sense at all but it does you see today. Jesus healing someone else. But in a different way. Yesterday he told the blind beggar. Your faith has saved you today when he says today salvation has come to this house because this man to is a descendant of Abraham for the son of man and has come to seek and to save what was lost so he heals Zacchaeus in a unique way by spending time with him. You see see wants to Kia's had an encounter with Jesus he says to the Lord Behold half of my possessions Lord I shall give to the poor and if if I ever extorted anything from anyone I shall repay it four times over. What are we going to learn from this between yesterday and today? Hopefully we learn that. If you seek Zeke Jesus you find healing you have salvation when you encounter Jesus that should be enough for any one of us to get moving to start paying attention to our spiritual life jump into chapter. Nineteen of Luke's Gospel think about that encounter. Jesus head was Akia. Somehow Zacchaeus was up in that tree wanting to see him so bad today. Let's want to see Jesus as is bad as a kiosk did. Let's have that encounter. Let's open up our home and say come on. Let's open up our heart and say I'm ready.

"Welcome to cassidy acidy comments. I'm glad you are tuning in for this discussion on dirt dirt you say why are you talking about dirt well well. I'm not actually focusing under more specifically grass. You see we recently had to have our deck rebuilt and we needed to get some dirt hurt and plant some grass in order to bring the great up to code so we got some rich soil that the dirt supplier promised was so good. Did you could grow anything in it but i'm getting ahead of myself. Apparently the homeowner before us must have had some sort of a deck doc building party with friends who were likely offered adult beverages for their labor. At least that's what we are assuming since they inadvertently only forgot to put in some support posts in the most trafficked area of our deck where our boards began to sag and they built the deck seven seven and a half inches off square. I have to say as we were trying to figure out what we wanted an attack. My husband wisely ignored. My over are confident we can do this ourselves remark so we hired a skill builder who knew what to do and the finnish project turned out how beautiful okay so back to the dirt as my husband's spread the dirt around the base of the deck steps to bring the great up to code he ceded the area put straw on it and then we faithfully watered at twice a day. It really only took a few days before the first light hairs of grass began to poke through the straw aw now we have a beautiful patch of green grass around the time. We were doing all this. I came across the familiar passage in the gospel of john from chapter twelve south beginning at verse twenty. Four jesus says that a grain of wheat must fall to the ground and die in order to produce anything if it doesn't die. It just remains a grain of wheat now. According to the footnotes for this passage jesus is talking about himself and his need to die so that he will be accessible sessile to everyone but as i thought about this passage i realized that our grass seeds had died before our very is in the quiet darkness of that rich soil and had begun to grow it was as if one day they just appeared out of nowhere but common sense tells us that between the sun and watering. They got just what they needed to mature. If you take the example of jesus about the wheat meeting to die so that it can grow consider how that might also apply to to us we really cannot grow and mature his disciples nor produce anything unless we have been properly nourished in god's word and given time time to quietly evolve. Let's look closer. Jesus continues in this passage in the gospel of john saying that if we love our life we will lose it and if we hate our life in this world we will preserve it for eternal life taken at face value. This sounds a little harsh is jesus is telling us that we need to run around hating life. Well not exactly you have to look at the whole picture and consider his wheat example go to really understand it. A grain of wheat. Ill cared for is just a grain that exists without any purpose. It doesn't break break open or produce anything. Eh remains nothing more than what it is but a grain of wheat that has given itself up to what it is to become by soaking. Oh king up the sun and water and rich soil is like the disciple preserved for each her life. The grain that takes in those nutrients of life again like a disciple can grow beyond itself as we absorb god's word and accept his love. We become instruments for a greater purpose. We do not simply exist for ourselves in the here and now like the grass that poked up through the straw around our steps we a to impact the beauty of the world around us and add to it when we become who we are meant to become if we recognize that our life in this world is not what we have been ultimately made for but that we have been made for eternal life then we are not going to be in love with our life here imagining edging somehow that it is all there is similarly. If we are so content with our life here on earth we may not be able to imagine what is is to come which in turn looks a lot like loving our life here and losing eternal life as i close i realized that i didn't even get to talk about the importance of being planted in rich soil. If it weren't for planting our grass seed in rich soil it probably wouldn't have sprouted out of our clay rich ground so for the disciple everything needs to come together the soil the nutrients the care and attention and the willingness to allow lower selves to die in order to live translated we could say we need the church the sacraments our community and her brothers and sisters with whom we share this mission altogether. These are the ingredients of a healthy beautiful body of christ. May we all continue to grow together to make this world a beautiful place.

"Welcome to cassidy comments yes. I'm glad you can join me today for a discussion on the messy -ness of change back in two thousand three the catholic church decided it would make a change now. The first thing you need to know about the problem with that sentence is the word change. Nobody likes change especially people who have been doing something something the same way for an eternity so back in two thousand three there was the idea that we needed to be more unified now if you don't i don't know the catholic mass just believe me when i say that we have tons of unity during our mass from the responses says we give to the prayers that are offered. We are often in unison but apparently not enough so there was the idea that it would be good. If after we receive holy communion we remain standing now walk into any catholic mass today and you will see how well that worked out. It was a valiant valiant effort. I'll give you that and out of charity. We were offered flexibility which means today you will find people standing kneeling and sitting a true vision of unity if i do say so myself but there was a deeper reason for the proposed change range. Here's how the website at a ramos dot org put it maintaining a common posture while the whole assembly shares using communion expresses with our bodies the unity that communion creates among us so in other words our bodies. He's express our unity in the posture of standing after we go to communion flexibility was given to avoid rigidity and to help people feel more comfortable both good things who can argue with that besides there is a great deal more to be said about out the posture itself but i digress. Let's move away from the posture example of how messy it can get when we attempt to unify and let's talk talk about what's really necessary to achieve unity being unified as individuals who are part of a collective abbadi we can and should be directed towards what we should all be able to agree on the essentials such as respect for others a sound moral standard and so forth north but we get all tangled up and things get pretty messy so what's the bottom line no matter where we disagree we need to i'll be loving towards each other that should be the foundation of how we exist but today we are seeing growing discourse in our society that promotes the individual over the collective rather than working toward the common good which is beneficial to everyone. How can we find find any sense of unity if we are all doing whatever we want especially without charity. If we do not have a sense of being part of a unique the whole it will be hard to get to unity freedom then if misunderstood as everyone should do whatever they i feel like without concern for everyone. Else can slide into the hate filled rhetoric that we are seeing so much of today if it is just about me then that's a problem. Doesn't it seem like the ugliest element present in our sinful. Human nature is rearing its head today doesn't.

"Welcome to cassidy comments. I'm glad you are joining me today. I hope in today's episode you will find a little fun history history and maybe some inspiration as many of you know. I love quotes. If you do to then you will understand me when I say it's hard to find a place to put them where you can just grab them when you need them one place I have found put them. Recently is on my twitter feed. If you are a quote junkie you can follow me at Living Water J. N.. In the number seven years ago I found a quote on a poster that I liked and I put it on the wall above above my computer. It has never lost my attention. It's a popular quote attributed to Theodore Roosevelt and I think I bought it as inspiration for my kids when we were homeschooling it says do what you can with what you Oh have where you are. This quote has spoken to me many times over the years when I have been frustrated. Sometimes we have trouble figuring out how to do something. Sometimes we do not get the desired results. Were shooting for in sometimes it seems. Seems like we simply do not have what we need to get the job done whether it is money skill time energy or whatever while according to answers dot com which I have no idea if it is accurate read or not Roosevelt spoke these words when his men needed more supplies as they were about to begin the battle for San Juan Hill during the spanish-american war imagine my surprise when out of curiosity as I started digging for information about this quotes history I discovered that it has been misquoted over the years as I continued. My search I discovered that not only is my quote wrong. It should say do what you can with what you've got where you are instead of with what you have it isn't even Roosevelt's quote one online site by Sue Bruton and she backs it up with evidence is that Roosevelt was quoting some guy named Squire Bill widener who I think actually may have been quoting someone else but in checking about squire bill I found on find a grave dot Com who knew there was such a site that he was indeed a friend of Roosevelt's and was is in fact a millwright confederate soldier teacher Sunday School Superintendent Justice of the peace and spiritual adviser so apparently according to Sue Bruton Roosevelt was quoting his friend Squire Bill. She shows a text from Roosevelt's autobiography where he references his friend from Weidner's Valley Virginia and quotes what he calls a bit of homely philosophy quoted by Squire Bill widener Wow who knew that for so many years I have actually been inspired by a popular community figure from Virginia named Squire Bill. I'm beginning to think from learning about Squire bill that the inspirational words of this man man we're exemplified in his life. When I consider all the roles he played in his community? Now I know things were set up differently in the mid to late nineteenth century than they are today but going from soldier to Sunday School Superintendent to spiritual chill adviser says something of the man's broad base of talents okay so back to the quote. I still find squire bills. Do what you can with what you've got. Where you are very inspiring? It feels like at the heart of it. There is a call to humility and action. We have to acknowledge that we can't do it all but that doesn't mean we can't do anything and while we may not have all that we need ideally we start with what we do have and get moving to me. This quote yells do something there are no excuses. What is it that you have put on hold because your situation isn't ideal? What are you planning to learn or do some? Day The older I get the more I appreciate every day that I have in the greater. My desire grows to not waste one of them taking inventory of what you do have and start there. If you don't have a skill you need need. How might you develop it? If you don't have the resources you need who might be able to help you get them if you don't have motivation study motivational speakers and learn from them in and finally in humility recognize that we have a loving father who guides are steps and blesses our efforts so there really is no reason to wait to get moving in the end. I find it interesting that quote vote by a Virginian named Squire bill buried in a cemetery named at Rush Creek in nineteen twenty was used by President of the United States and found its way onto a poster that I used for inspiration when homeschooling my kids at the end of the century I'll leave you with the final quote that was attributed to Theodore Roosevelt in his autobiography of nineteen thirteen just above where he quote Squire Bill in Chapter Nine while talking thing about a life deliberately devoted to pleasure as an end Roosevelt said the greatest happiness is the happiness that comes as a byproduct of striving to do what must be done even though sorrow.
