But you know where else good stuff happens, Murph? Where is that? Patreon slash .com Game of Crimes. We've got some good stuff. We just, I think we did a really good case of the month. We talked about the ambush killing of the deputy in Klinkenbroomer out in Los Angeles. And we talked about the escapee, which by the way, Murph. So folks, they got to listen if you're not on there, but you actually got, you were on the national news talking with Lawrence Jones about that. I was, and it's a very short interview. So don't get excited, but we're talking about the fugitive in Pennsylvania because since then there's been two more in other states. Yeah, well, and we give you our thoughts about that one, but it had to be short because it was late at night and Murph usually is asleep by that time, so. They don't know that I got my pajama bottoms on underneath my shirt I'm wearing. I don't want to know. I don't want to know. Hey guys, but that's where the fun stuff happens. But yeah, and the other thing too, real quick, Murph, before we get into talking about one of our fun things, you will be appearing on CBS in a show. You can't talk about it yet. Oh, I can't talk about it yet? I just got picked up last night for a second episode. Well, then I will cut this part out. No, no, it's okay. I just don't name the show yet. Oh, don't name the show. So we can talk about it. We just can't talk about it. Not sure when it's going to be released. Originally they were saying fall, but now they're saying late winter, early spring. So we'll see. We won't say, is it okay to say CBS? You already did. Well, we can edit this out. Is it okay to leave it in? Yeah, it's fine. Okay. If it's not, I'll hear about it. I doubt that they listened to our podcast, but anyway. Hey, I tell you what, the crew, you know, I gave them all business cards and they're like, oh, I'm going to listen to it tonight. So, all righty. Well, we won't say anything, but just suffice it to say is that you will, if things work out, we'll be seeing you on the telly. It just shows you how hard they are for talent. Boy, are they? Let's hope that this writer's strike resolves itself really soon in actors. Well, no, no, no, no. Cause as long as it's unscripted, I'm making money.
Fresh update on "charles" discussed on Game of Crimes
"And of course, undercover was essential. I guess it's, they call drug cases victimless crimes. Certainly there are a lot of victims, but it's called that because not many drug dealers are gonna call the cops on themselves and the users certainly don't call the cops on their suppliers. So in narcotics work, at least in those days, now there's a lot of technology involved that we didn't have in those days. In our day, you worked undercover. In effect, you had the crook commit the crime in front of you and then complain to a jury that he broke the law. No better evidence than having a law enforcement officer testify to the facts. But I have to say, I did a lot of, I tried to do a lot of undercover work. I was not very successful initially. Well, I guess some people are much better at it than I. It's like acting and some people, it just comes naturally and others have to work at it. I had to work at it and- Well, how many years have you acted like you like Murph? I mean, there's some good acting right there. He deserves a cameo, an Emmy for the Oscar- A cameo, an Emmy for the cameo, yeah, there you go. Well, I think for one thing, most of the heroin dealers in Philadelphia were either black or Italian American. And so the most effective undercover agents were of that tribe, you know? And as a German, English, Irish guy, you know, in those days, it was just very difficult to infiltrate into one of these organizations, have any credibility at all. So what changed for you then? When did you start getting over that hump and start making cases? Well, actually, I'm kind of embarrassed to say that my first successful case was a marijuana case. You know, we called it a kitty dope. None of us wanted to work marijuana cases. Real narcs worked heroin, methamphetamine, cocaine, and later on cocaine. But I actually had 500, I guess it was pounds of Mexican marijuana delivered to me and of all places, Memphis, Tennessee. And that was my first success as an undercover agent. Hey, you got to get your feet wet somehow, right? Yeah, well, exactly. Gives a new meaning to walking in Memphis feet, 10 feet off a Beale. Smoke a little bit of that marijuana, you know, you get high. But later on, I actually, I have to boast a little bit. I had an informant that introduced me to a Colombian national who sold me the first kilogram of cocaine ever purchased undercover in Philadelphia. There you go. So, you know, that kind of, again, built my confidence. Just randomly, do you remember how much the kilo went for back then? Yes, it was $3,000, which I thought was an incredible amount of money. Actually turned out to be pretty cheap. But at that time, I was making just slightly more than $6,000 a year. Wow. Holy cow. Not much has changed, right? What year was that? Well, that would have been probably 72, something like that, 73. Wow. So I started, I was a uniform cop in West Virginia. I started at $9,600 a year, and I thought that was pathetic. It was pathetic. Dang, yeah, well, I started off at $7.25 an hour. What does ever that works out to? It's like, you know, 14,000 a year, I think. But 3,000 a year, or 6,000 a year, and you've got dope in your hand worth three, which you could cut, right, and probably sell for, you know, 50 or 100, right? Right, exactly. So, but you, I mean, as you go through BNDD, you were there when BNDD became DEA. When did that change happen into your career? How far were you into your career when that happened? Well, in, I guess, well, in 1973, I applied to go overseas, and I was selected to go to Thailand, I'm sure, largely because of my experience in Vietnam. And was that also because that was a source of supply for heroin? At the time on the East Coast, yes. The Golden Triangle was the predominant source for heroin. And so, you know, it was of interest for me to go over there. So anyway, I applied, I had been working undercover again on a case against some, he was really a mope, I have to say, but he has some connections to organize, Italian organized crime in Philadelphia. And I made a couple of purchases, it was actually pills of some sort. And so we were following him, trying to find his source of supply. When I got notified that I'd been selected and had the report for Thai language school. So we had to take the case down. And so we took this guy off and figured, you know, we had enough charges on him through a couple of buys that maybe we could prosecute him, thought we might be able to flip him. And so at that day, of course, back in those days, we didn't have cell phones and things like that. The guy had a telephone book in his pocket. And in there, well, I should back up a little bit. I guess at that time, BNDD, they had an undercover phone put in our apartment. And my wife used to answer it when I wasn't around, you know, to kind of make it seem like we were normal people. And when we took this guy down, he had my undercover name and his book and my phone number. And below that, he had written in my actual address. So apparently he had a connection with New Jersey Beltel. I was living right across the river from Philadelphia at the time. And they must've had a connection with New Jersey Beltel and got my real address. So of course, the second Philadelphia said, hey, you got to get out of there. My wife had just had a baby, but the timing was good in the sense that I was headed for language school anyway. So I left Joy, my wife, with her mother and went down to Thai language school. Well, it was while I was down there that I guess Executive Order One created the Drug Enforcement Administration. The idea was to stop the bickering between customs and BNDD. It didn't work, but well, it didn't work because they never defined, in my view, they never defined the border.

I've chosen our episode from November of 2019 on cockney rhyming slang. This is one of those silly episodes That's also packed with a lot of interesting information and I remember Chuck and I having fun making it So I hope you'll enjoy listening to it, too enjoy Welcome to stuff you should know production of I heart radio And welcome to the podcast I'm Josh Clark and there's Charles W. Chuck Bryant right there. There's Jerry Roland right there So that makes this stuff. You should know right Can't top that I was trying to think a way to say welcome to the podcast in cockney rhyming slang Can you make an attempt my I'm my brain is so broken right now. I can't even try. Okay, good good Well, welcome. It's a good good time to record a show You're gonna do some cockney in here, right? We want to offend as many Londoners as we can I don't know just just channel a little Dick Van Dyke. Oh You know Yeah, the American Doing a bad cockney accent. Well, I did recently rewatch the limey Yes Casey's for benefit. Yeah, the great great movie from Steven Soderbergh. Never seen it. It's awesome. Is it really? Yeah, I mean, I know it's like a classic and everybody loves it. But I mean, it's really that good Yeah, because a lot of people liked I don't know the hangover. I Like the hangover. Well, how would you how would you like the limey and the hangover same level? Yeah, they're the same movie almost. All right, it's weird. Well, then I've seen the hangover so I don't need to see the limey Lemmy's great and Terence stamp is Awesome, and it then uses some cockney rhyming slang and one great scene My big exposure to cockney rhyming slang is lock stock in two smoking barrels Snatch. Yeah, which I think are both directed by Guy Ritchie, right? Wasn't lock stock like his first attempt and snatch was the one that like Got him married to Madonna you a fan of his yeah, I mean as much as I Like his movies, I don't like him personally necessarily cuz he like hunts bore like a jackass does it like yeah No drunk with his friends in the most like disrespectful way of murdering a pig. I admit his movies But yeah, I do like his movie sounds like he's a creep, too I'm not gonna go on record saying that but Yeah, those movies are okay and then I guess what's his name Don Cheadle a little bit in Oceans 11 sure he did a little bit of that right and I mean like It's code to Americans. It's oh, there's like a criminal a British criminal, right? That's all that means these days Yeah, I think so in movies. It's definitely Like all of those are criminal right criminal people in the movies They're like, you know kind of slick cool criminals that wear leather coats and stuff like that Not dumb criminals that wear like football jerseys or anything like that. They're like, you know smooth criminals That's I think what I was looking for. Yeah, but This this idea of associating it with cockney is not necessarily associating it with criminals. It's more associated with like Lower class working class less educated definitely not the aristocracy over in Britain yeah, or the upper class sure and that by by speaking with a cockney accent or More to the point using cockney rhyming slang you could really differentiate yourself To as a point of pride, right? Like you were speaking like your group your in -group which was at the time cockney, right? But the big surprise to all this is it's really possible and even probable that it wasn't the cockney that came up with this Rhyming slang that it was somebody else altogether. Maybe who knows should we say what it is? No Not for the rest of the podcast cockney rhyming slang Wasn't even Very clearly defined in this piece. Okay, did you think it was? It's in there. Okay, you got to just kind of separate the wheat from the chaff So it is a two -word phrase and is a slang phrase Consisting of two words so far so good where the last word of that phrase rhymes with the original word and It can be and I think the best way to do this is just to throw out a few no. No keep describing Well, the two -word phrase it can be it can be a lot of things it can be a person's name It can be just something random can be a place could be a place. It could be a lot of things it can be anything Yeah, sure. I guess it can be But shall we illustrate it through? Well, there's a second part to it. Okay, the second part and this is very important the Two -word phrase that you're using to that where the second one rhymes with the word you're actually saying Yeah, the original word the original word. Thank you Usually has nothing to do with it. There's no metaphor. There's no connection. There's no Nothing, there's no there's no context to it It's supposed to just be random or in most cases. It is just random words right one of which rhymes with the word you're replacing and To further complicate things sure In a lot of cases and no one knows why sometimes this happens and sometimes it doesn't a lot of times that one of the words Of the two -word phrase is dropped. Yeah, and then you're just left with the one word Which doesn't even rhyme with the original word anymore, right? That's I mean, that's probably the best description of cockney rhyming slang anyone's ever given So I think we should illustrate it with a couple of examples. I pulled some from From something called the internet Here here's one the the tip and tete That's how long it took me to come up with that Tip and tete for internet, but in ten years, it'll just be called the tip I'm gonna log on to the tip governor So let's say your word was and this was in oceans 11 specifically trouble is the word that you're trying to say Cockney rhyming slang for trouble is Barney rubble awesome And so you would say you're making a bit of the bonnie rubble again, right when somebody that was kind of Who was that? Making a bit of bonnie rubble not the see I already did it wrong No, but I think you that's not like a real person to an American for sure. Oh, yeah Um, I can't I can't I'll shout it out. Later. Oh, man. I finally did a good one No, but it wasn't a cockney person, okay for Another example Queen They would use the term baked bean Look who's on TV. It's the baked bean And that's the Queen. I like that one or in the case of one that's been dropped What is Ed use here bees and honey? That one is not dropped for money. Okay, but which one was apples and pears right? Right, so you would say I'm gonna go up the apple and stairs Apples and pears. Oh, man Let me retake this everybody You would say I'm going to go up the apples and pears to go get my wallet to pay for this pizza Or something to that effect. Okay, but then over time people drop the pears And so now the word for stairs in cockney rhyming slang is just apples Which if you're just standing there on the outside like a normal American bloke sure, which by the way means person You have no idea why this person just called stairs apples You got what they were saying because the context is there you're going up the apples to get your wallet to pay for the pizza But why would you just say that did you did you hit your head? Is there something wrong with you? What's the problem? Why would you just call that apples? Yeah, that's why it's so confounding But the great thing about cockney rhyming slang and in particular the great thing about researching cockney rhyming slang is you learn How you get from apples to stairs and then it makes sense sometimes Yeah, that's true. It's not always. Yeah, sometimes there's It's not documented which ed points out is one of the problems sometimes you can draw the line the through line But because it's not documented and sometimes these things take years and years to morph into its final version right unless you unless you're you know on the What would you call street on the dole? No on the streets, then I wouldn't know but I don't know what streets is you can't just make stuff up like there's real words I'm the drums and beats So you're on the drums right, but they probably have a word for streets like that's the whole point You can't just make anything up, but the you could if it hasn't been taken yet sure Also, that's the other thing about cockney rhyming slang is it evolves right so old celebrities that that no one even knows about anymore Fall away to new celebrities whose name also rhyme with you know whatever word you're saying right? I thought you meant old celebrities who maybe used to talk this way like Michael Caine no He's never said any rhyming slang in his life. No of course you got to see the movie Alfie Maybe that's who it was it might have been Michael Caine. I'll take that Michael Caine. I think it was as a matter of fact Thank you, I'm glad you did it. Noel always says a good joke is to say Michael Caine in the correct accent say the words my cocaine And it sounds like Michael Caine saying it then it sounds like that the correct accent for Michael Caine all right say it my cocaine Well you just blew that one out of the water You Gotta set me up in the future Okay, well there's I've got it two ways now, man, okay, here's the thing my cocaine That's my cocaine That's pretty good Michael Caine. It is good. You're right. No. You just got to say it the right way and not like a robot Josh So here's that one of the things is sort of confounding if you want to look up a like a glossary and Say well, here's what I'm gonna. Do I'm gonna learn cockney rhyming slang so for my trip to England I'm really you know. I'm really in with everybody First of all bad idea yeah second of all it's it can be very localized Mm -hmm and the accents are all different Yeah, so even people in London sure who both who all use well people in London Do but the people who use cockney rhyming slang in London yeah might not even agree on what word is means What I'm just picturing all the people walking around England laughing their arses off. I can't wait to get to that one As we stumble through this um yeah, it had a really good Example of why there's no codification of the cockney rhyming slang He said that when people are creating a language especially informal ones like slang They don't write it all down quote dear diary referred to my house as a cat and mouse today because it rhymed We all had a good laugh might try. Just calling it cat tomorrow and see how it goes It is it sounds funny, but that's that's how it works stumbling across the diaries And here's the other thing too is there are cases where there is a little bit of a reflection of the original word and the example that it gives here is twist Yeah, like to call a woman a twist mm -hmm Which I don't know if that's derogatory or not or just some weird slang that no one uses anymore I don't think so although I don't know so yeah these are also the people who use the C word like it's nothing Man I can't wait to go back there Which we're gonna do soonish right? I'd love to do in 2020. Maybe yeah, all right So twist came from twist and twirl which meant girl which is They were talking about like dancing with a girl twisting and twirling in a nightclub Let's say so there is some connection in that one. Yeah, so girl and ended up becoming twist So that sort of makes sense there's another one called on your Todd After a guy named Todd Sloan and it means on your own Right and the thing is is like on your Todd it makes sense Sloan rhymes with own It doesn't have to have any connection, but that one actually does yeah Cuz Todd Sloan was a famous jockey in the 19th century like horse jockey. Yes, okay? What other kind is there disc jockeys? Oh, yeah, sure So his book his memoir was called Todd Sloan by himself Which is weird to refer to yourself in third person for your memoir Hmm, but there was a line in it that apparently East End East Enders in London like really picked up I was left alone by those. I never ceased to grieve for It's still like the idea of being alone or on your own Became synonymous with Todd Sloan his name just happened to rhyme with that So it's one of those rare ones where there is a connection to it and also rare Chuck in that This is a 19th century horse jockey and still today on your Todd is recognized as on your own Whereas a lot of people probably have no idea exactly who he is and when that happens That frequently that person gets moved out for potentially another celebrity or another word That's a little more understandable or recognized another new jockey two people today, right? Yeah exactly which can you name one? Nope? Nope Alright, maybe we should take a break and we'll talk about some of the other some other examples after this message In a world where modern technology is rapidly reshaping our day -to -day lives the new podcast Technically speaking an Intel podcast uncovers the remarkable ways tech is improving our livelihood across the globe brought to you by Ruby Studios from I heart media in partnership with Intel technically speaking is your passport to the forefront of AI's marvels in modern technology each episode will Take you on a riveting journey as you discover the awe -inspiring innovations of our modern world from game -changing innovations Revolutionizing early cancer detection to AI software that detects pests on crops that can be detrimental to seasonal yields tune in for Conversations that are shaping tomorrow today.
Fresh update on "charles" discussed on Game of Crimes
"And I have the honor, Morgan and I have the honor of having my first ASAC and DEA on show with us today, Charles Lutz. Charles, welcome brothers. Good to see you here. Well, it's a pleasure to be on your podcast and I have to say, when I first learned of it, I must've been living under a rock because it was just maybe six months ago. But since then, I've listened to a lot of your podcasts and I have to say, I'm very impressed. He told us that, he told me that Michelle Linhart was one of his favorite interviews. He found out things about her he didn't know. She sandbagged us about where she grew up at, you know, and go bears, you know, and poofed her hair. If it had not been for poofing her hair, she never would have been on Baltimore PD and never would have been at DEA, you know. You know, too, it's, and I gotta say this right up front, it's very unusual for me to call this man Charles because it was always Mr. Lutz or hey boss. So, you know, here in our twilight years, I guess, or the beginning of our twilight years, we've now become good friends. Well, that's interesting. We've now become good friends. Maybe there's some adversarial stuff we can talk about, but as we do with everybody, Mr. Lutz, Charles, how did, you know, Cosa Nostra, think of ours, how did you get started in this thing of ours? And don't tell me, well, I'm gonna guess based on your age, it wasn't Miami Vice. Miami Vice didn't come on the air till years later. So how did you get started in this thing of ours called law enforcement? You know, what was your journey to getting into DEA? Well, actually it kind of goes back to my Vietnam service. I was a graduate at Penn State University and I was commissioned an intelligence officer, which I guess is kind of an oxymoron. Military intelligence, right? One of the great contradictions. And I was sent to Vietnam. I actually, it turned out to be a very good experience for me. People ask me, you know, where do I grow up? And oftentimes I'll say Vietnam. In college, I was only responsible for myself and hadn't done a particularly good job at that. And here in Vietnam, I had men asking me, what do I do now, Lieutenant? And I could tell you grew up real fast. But I also enjoy, you know, it's hard for some people to realize or understand, but I really enjoyed my tour of duty over there. And I was, for six months, I was an advisor to a Vietnamese infantry division intelligence unit. What year was that? That would have been 1968 to 69 I was there, more in the first six months of 1969. Were you there during Tet? I came in just after the Tet Offensive. And the month before had been the deadliest for Americans of the entire war. So I obviously was a little bit nervous landing there at Benoit Air Base. But in any event, I enjoyed the work that I did there. And when I started looking at, you know, kind of a childhood interest of mine was law enforcement. Although when I matriculated at Penn State, in those years, they didn't even have a law enforcement program. So I ended up a political science major thinking, well, maybe learning about government would help me someday.

"When they get to me and they're scraping the bottom of the barrel, that's when they'll solve the strike issue. Thank you for mentioning it. Well, hey, no, it's good stuff because we want to take credit for making you into the star that you're about to be. So you got your training here. I think they felt so sorry for the old hillbilly. Well, hey, speaking of feeling sorry for people, I'm going to tell you a story, but first, before we get into that, Murph, I have to ask you something. Yes. Well, I got to tell you something first. This is a show about crime. We talk about bad people doing bad things and bad people doing bad things to good people. We take the story seriously, but... You know we never take ourselves serious. And what section of the show do we normally do, which we pass because two of the latest episodes dealt with 9-11 and the terrorist attack. But we decided to bring it back. And so, Murph, if we're going to talk about that, I have to ask you one question. And what is that question? Do you know what the question is? What time is it? What time is it? Do you know what time it is? It's time for Small Town Police Blotters. Hey, this one I stole from A.G. Harris IV. He posted it on the Game of Crimes fan group. Hopefully you haven't read the story yet. Have you? Probably not. Okay. Not unless Connie read it to you. I get that. Okay, she's a bit busy. Well, Murph, at first this is going to sound like what's the big deal here, right? So Indiana State Police Trooper was patrolling the area around Vincennes, Indiana, population 16,631. Sound, loot. On Wednesday, this just happened recently. So during his patrol, they came across this guy, 51-year-old John McKee. He was driving a Jeep, right? Didn't seem like that was that big of a deal, but no lights, nothing. Pulled him over, right? So he pulled him over, showed signs of impairment, arrested him, took him to the hospital. This is going to shock you, Murph. They found marijuana and meth in his system. What's our number one rule? Don't do meth, kids. Don't do meth. So he says, you know, so they charge him with operating a vehicle while intoxicated with a prior conviction. So now, here's the fun part though. Now they released the dash cam and the body cam footage. And it shows him pulling this guy over. And after pulling this over, the trooper tells him, you know, you just can't drive these things down the road, right? So he conducts this test. That's when he, you know, he fails him. They take him for a blood test. But this is where it gets really funny, Murph. Well, funny, I guess, right? No big deal that they arrested him in a Jeep, right? Okay. What's wrong with the Jeep? It's a Power Wheels Jeep. This dude is 51 years old in the middle of the night, driving a Power Wheels down the street. No reflection, no lights. Says he's gonna go get gas for his other vehicle, but there's no gas can there. So while he has thoughts of stardom, he says, I've been riding these Power Wheels for the last nine months and you're the only one that's taken me to jail. You know, he said it may get even famous from this, but I guess one of the funniest parts too, Murph, is remember when you would arrest somebody for DUI or something, you'd have to tow their vehicle. Funniest part was calling a tow truck out to tow the Power Wheels. Was it his or did he steal it? I think it was his. They didn't say they charged him with theft, but because what got this started too, there was another little thread going on. Guy said, you ever arrested anybody on a John Deere and they're showing like a little toy tractor? I said, well, yeah. Bex, I arrested a guy on a John Deere 4450. Guy, you know, Friday night, driving down the highway, no lights and a big John Deere 4450. Remember his name too. It's like his 15th arrest for DUI. Oh, holy cow. That's way past felony level there. Well, they didn't have felonies back then. So it was just, you know, misdemeanors on top of misdemeanors, but they changed that. So anyway, hey. Wait a minute, what's a 4450? It's a big one, like a quad. Like a combine? No, no, it's a tractor. So you can pull a, it's got power takeoff shaft on it. You know, good farming implement. Got it. John Deere Green. All right. Hey Murph, this next guy did not want to go to jail. Nobody ever does. But this guy, this guy gets the award. I'm telling you, for not wanting to go to jail. So he was an armed robbery suspect. This happened up in Vermont, somewhere near Burlington. Again, this just happened recently. He was, Eric Edson was wanted on accusations of robbery of a store in Burlington. Actually back in August 24th. It just happened recently. And assaulting two police officers. So, and stealing some stuff. So what happened was, is they responded, the police responded to a man passed out in a running vehicle that matched the description of one used in a robbery a week prior, right? So when they roused him, guess what he do? He fled at a high rate of speed. He assaulted both officers with the vehicle. So now we've got a manhunt going on, right? So, they find him. Guess what he did? What he did? He fled on foot. Then guess what he did? Got caught? No, he stole a bicycle. Then guess what he did? What? He stole a sailboat. Really? And while he's out on that sailboat, the coast guard goes to intercept him and guess what he does? Jumps in the water. No, he hops in a kayak. Oh my gosh, you can't make, this is what I have so far, you can't make this shit up. And then, so he up by the Lamoille River, I believe in Georgia, Vermont, about 21 miles away from Burlington, he landed the kayak, ran away, and then jumped into the river and swam to the Southern shore where he was finally arrested by troopers and gay mortals. Oh my God, I mean, think about a sailboat. You got to know how to run one of those things to even get it off the, you know, I mean, just to get it out in the water. This is a guy that stole a car, fled on foot, stole a bicycle, stole a sailboat, stole a kayak, and then swam. This guy did not want to go to jail. And what happened, Murph? He went to jail. He went to jail. What's the old saying? If you run from police, you're just going to go to jail tired, son, so.
A highlight from LGM Podcast: Waging War with Gold
"This is the Lawyers, Guns, and Money podcast. Hello, and welcome to the Lawyers, Guns, and Money podcast. My name is Rob Farley. And with me today, I am delighted to have my very own co -authors, a long -term friend of the blog, Charles Danoff, who is not a newcomer to the Lawyers, Guns, and Money podcast. You may remember him from such podcasts as the Top 50 Westerns of All Time, and I don't know, possibly some other podcasts some other time in some other place. And also not a newcomer to the podcast, Dr. Jeff Williams, who you may remember from a podcast we did some time ago on street crime and firearms. But both of those are a little bit deep cuts for the LGM podcast group. How are you fellows doing today? Great, thank you. Yeah, good. So the occasion of our podcast this week is a project that the three of us worked on together for about two years. It is a book that is now available through Lynn Rainer called Waging War with Gold, National Security and the Finance Domain Across the Ages. And this project is a labor of love that we spend a great deal of time on. It is available through Amazon and other sellers. We would deeply appreciate any thoughts that anybody might have about it. Then today we wanted to explore the project, sort of think through what some of the main arguments are, but also think a little bit about the process of how we went through and ended up writing this book. So I think it's probably best if we start with you, Charles. Maybe you could do the sort of the brief outline of our argument book, but then also if you could tell us a little bit about sort of where you're coming from and what attracted you to this particular project. Sure. Well, the germ of the project really started when you recommended me for visiting professorship at the Army War College. And against all common sense and odds, they took your recommendation. And I spent what was a very fruitful, eventful year there, after which they canceled the program. So I guess I had an impact. But during the course of that, and we had discussions which later turned into presentations, and I was able to run a seminar on it about the idea that one thing that is lacking from what is called professional military education, and honestly in international relations and strategic studies in general, is a consideration of the role that finance plays in the contest station for international supremacy. So we developed a theory based on this, which starts out that states do, we start with some really basic and universally accepted assumptions, at least within the IR community, which is that states seek to maximize either their security or their power, whichever word you use, and that in the course of that, they contest with each other in international arenas or what are called domains to get to hegemony where they can stop worrying about whether they're the most powerful state in the system or not. And conventionally, the domains have been considered to be land, air, sea, and more recently, space, both actual and cyber, and those have been gradually integrated into the study of international relations. Our argument is that international finance is also a domain, and that in the same way that states compete by force of arms, they also compete using instruments of finance. And also, because there have been epical changes in the international system, we developed an adjunct to that theory, which is that in the same way that there are revolutions in military affairs that change the balance of power, there are also what we call revolutions in financial affairs, technological changes that affect who is the hegemon of the system. And in order to demonstrate that argument, we not only argue that it exists now, but that we go back basically to the beginning of recorded civilization, and we have several historical cases. Part of that is motivated by the Army War Colleges and professional military educations deep in abiding love for the Peloponnesian Wars. So we figured that one way to get a foothold with at least that particular audience is to how demonstrate using the Peloponnesian War and as well as Polybius' writings afterwards that these conflicts existed and influenced the outcome. That's the gist of the argument. So I have more thoughts on what you just said, and I want to frame it a little bit more in terms of international relations theory. But before we do that, I want to go to Jeff. Now, Jeff, you come from a slightly different academic background than Charles and myself. List your affiliation here. Charles, you are University of Idaho, and Jeff, you are Transylvania University, Lexington's own, Transylvania University. Lexington's own. Exactly. So Jeff, from your perspective as an economist, what about this project seemed interesting to you and made you want to explore more deeply some of the stuff that we wrote about in the book? Well, when you first described it to me, I guess it was a phone call. You were just talking about the idea and the idea of the finance domain, the domain framework just seemed like such a beautiful way to think about a lot of different issues in finance for me, which is very clarifying. Just that very notion was very clarifying in terms of thinking of institutional development and sort of a lot of stuff that kind of is talked about by financial historians and economic historians and all sorts of people in the present day and going back. And I think that the idea of the domain just structured stuff in an almost magical way in terms of my thinking about it would be the way to describe it. And so as sort of specifically in your sort of academic training as an economist, how would you say that economists and political scientists think differently about finance and specifically finance, right? Not the economy more broadly, but specifically the role of money.

Just go to facebook.com and just put in Game of Crimes fans and you will be just, hey, answer a couple quick questions, get admittance to the inner sanctum where all the good stuff happens. But you know where else good stuff happens, Murph? Where is that? Patreon.com slash Game of Crimes. We've got some good stuff. We just, I think we did a really good case of the month. We talked about the ambush killing of the deputy in Klinkenbroomer out in Los Angeles. And we talked about the escapee, which by the way, Murph. So folks, they got to listen if you're not on there, but you actually got, you were on the national news talking with Lawrence Jones about that. I was, and it's a very short interview. So don't get excited, but we're talking about the fugitive in Pennsylvania because since then there's been two more in other states. Yeah, well, and we give you our thoughts about that one, but it had to be short because it was late at night and Murph usually is asleep by that time, so. They don't know that I got my pajama bottoms on underneath my shirt I'm wearing. I don't want to know. I don't want to know. Hey guys, but that's where the fun stuff happens. But yeah, and the other thing too, real quick, Murph, before we get into talking about one of our fun things, you will be appearing on CBS in a show. You can't talk about it yet. Oh, I can't talk about it yet? I just got picked up last night for a second episode. Well, then I will cut this part out. No, no, it's okay. I just don't name the show yet. Oh, don't name the show. So we can talk about it. We just can't talk about it. Not sure when it's going to be released. Originally they were saying fall, but now they're saying late winter, early spring. So we'll see. We won't say, is it okay to say CBS? You already did. Well, we can edit this out. Is it okay to leave it in? Yeah, it's fine. Okay. If it's not, I'll hear about it. I doubt that they listened to our podcast, but anyway. Hey, I tell you what, the crew, you know, I gave them all business cards and they're like, oh, I'm going to listen to it tonight. So, all righty. Well, we won't say anything, but just suffice it to say is that you will, if things work out, we'll be seeing you on the telly. It just shows you how hard they are for talent. Boy, are they? Let's hope that this writer's strike resolves itself really soon in actors. Well, no, no, no, no. Cause as long as it's unscripted, I'm making money.
A highlight from BIG CRYPTO NEWS!! CITI BANK TOKEN & JUDGE DENIES SEC GARY GENSLER IN BINANCE US CASE!!
"Welcome back to the Thinking Crypto Podcast, your home for cryptocurrency news and interviews. If you are new here, please hit that subscribe button as well as the thumbs up button and leave a comment below. If you're listening on a podcast platform such as Spotify, Apple or Google or wherever you get your podcasts, make sure you hit that five star rating and review. It helps support the podcast and it doesn't cost you anything. Well folks, we've got big news coming out of Citigroup today. They have officially launched a token that will be used for deposits and the transference of money. Let me give you the details. Citigroup launches deposit city token services for institutional customers. This product will be based on a private blockchain controlled by the bank, converting customer deposit into digital tokens that can be sent instantly. Customers do not need to set up their own digital wallets and can be accessed through the bank's existing systems. This was reported by Bloomberg. This is huge news. There's many layers to this story. First it is further validation of this asset class and technology. And this technology is disruptive folks. And disruption is at the doorsteps of the banks, whether it be Citigroup, JP Morgan and many more. And they are trying to build their own versions, right? If the old system is working so perfectly, why are they trying to build blockchains and use blockchains and build tokens? Why? They know this new technology, this new asset class is the future. This technology is here to stay. It has many benefits. It will leave the old system in the dust. Folks, disruption is happening. Another major move here by a bank. And it's once again, further validation with technology. The other layer is that just about a week ago, reported on September 7th, JP Morgan was reported that they were building a deposit token themselves for settlements. JP Morgan is reportedly developing the infrastructure to run a new deposit token, allowing settlements between banks for corporate clients. Pretty clear what's happening here, folks. They know, especially with the likes of Ripple winning the lawsuit and XRP getting the clarity and not to mention CBDCs and stable coins and PayPal building their stable coins. This technology is here to stay and it's moving at a rapid pace. And look, I've been on record saying that I believe the TradFi incumbents, such as Citi, such as JP Morgan, Goldman, and these guys, weaponized Gary Gensler and the SEC to go and try to kill the stable coins, kill Ripple, kill whatever payment or crypto startup, right? Because Gary Gensler and the SEC are controlled by these TradFi incumbents. I had Caitlin Long on the podcast talking about the bias towards the TradFi incumbents, right? And we know how the political system works with campaign donations and much more. So it's pretty clear what's happening here. If you sit back and you look at the timeline, you look at the parallel of these things that are actually happening, right? We're not saying that we're not fabricating something here. It's clear what's been happening. It's clear what Jamie Dimon was saying since 2017 and what his bank was actually doing, right? Watch what they do, not what they say. Folks, first they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, and then you win. It's pretty clear that this tech is so disruptive. They're scared of it and they're trying to build their own versions. But the problem is these wall gardens that they're building on private blockchains, no one's going to trust it. Why would another bank want to trust your token that you control the blockchain, you control the nodes, and much more? There are going to be private blockchain systems, don't get me wrong, right? Citi may launch its token and within its own different branches move money and settle instantly, but don't expect JP Morgan to use their coin and vice versa. So this is what's happening. They're not going to be able to disrupt the market with cross -border payments and all the different blockchain systems that are out there, which provide more of a free market, trustless permissionless setup. So very bullish folks for the crypto asset class that these banks are so scared. They're trying to launch their own tokens. And once again, JP Morgan is trying to do the same thing. And as mentioned, this is being reported by Bloomberg and they're calling it Citi Token Services once again. Let me give you a quote here from Shamir Khalik, global head of the company's services division. The development of Citi Token Services is part of our journey to deliver real time, always on next generation transaction banking services to our institutional clients. Oh, but I thought the traditional way of doing things was working. I thought crypto and blockchain, all these things are scams and a Ponzi. I guess not. The move is the latest by an established banking giant to offer so -called tokenized deposits or transferable digital coins that can represent a claim against banks. Crucially though, these tokens are processed on blockchain reels, meaning settlement is instantaneous. Yep. Folks, I'm so glad I'm here early. I'm paying attention. I'm researching, I'm dollar cost averaging and I'm hodling. Now a great way to dollar cost average in is using Uphold, which is a great crypto exchange. They are one of the sponsors of this podcast. I've been using Uphold since 2018. They have 10 plus million users, 250 plus crypto currencies, and they're available in 150 countries. You can also trade precious metals and 37 national currencies where you can easily transfer between crypto to different Fiat currencies to precious metals. That's a pretty unique feature to Uphold. If you'd like to learn more about this platform, please visit the link in the description. Well, folks, we've got big news around the SEC versus Binance. The judge declined the SEC's request to inspect Binance US. So if you recall, there was news that the SEC rips into Binance US over a shaky asset custody asked court to order inspection. The regulator asked a US court to reject Binance's half -hearted objections to its motion seeking depositions and inspection and communication from the exchange. This is another big fat L for scumbag regulator Gary Gensler, and this is being reported by Bloomberg. Here's the headline. SEC fails to win immediate inspection of Binance US software. Regulator says it is not getting enough access in lawsuit. Magistrate judge didn't grant expedited discovery requests. So the SEC says it has been struggling to get information from Binance US since it sued the American exchange along with its international affiliate Binance Holdings Ltd and its chief executive officer Changping Zhao in June. So Gary is taking loss after loss after loss. And I think a big blow is coming with Coinbase. I think Coinbase has a strong case and just like the grayscale situation, a lot of legal analysts are saying, yeah, we think Coinbase is going to walk away with a victory. Now, it may not be a full victory, kind of like the ripple situation where the SEC did win on some grounds, but it will be the lion's share of the win, or if you were to count up the numbers here, and that is what we're looking for. And you may say, well, Tony, why are you bashing the SEC and Gary Gensler so much? Don't they have a job to do? You're absolutely right. They do have a job to do, but we know, and this has been confirmed by the crypto industry as well as members of Congress and other regulators, even SEC Commissioner Hester Peirce and Mark Ueda, the SEC and Gary Gensler have not been acting in good faith. They have not been abiding by the law. So this government agency, which is supposed to have integrity, which is opposed to abide by the law, are themselves not doing that. Well, you have Judge Sarah Netburn rip a lawsuit saying the SEC lacks faithful allegiance to the law. What a burn. What a statement, right? That a government agency is being called out by the judicial branch and you lack faithful allegiance to the law. And even Bill Hinman and his conflicts of interest with Ethereum. And the list goes on and on and on. Gary Gensler is a puppet on strings doing the bidding of the incumbents when he's supposed to be a neutral party just looking to protect investors and they are attacking good actors. So it's not like they are just going after bad actors and that's the end of it. They're attacking good actors. And it goes back to what we were talking about at the beginning of the podcast. Citibank and all these banking incumbents have weaponized Gary Gensler to kill the startups that are disrupting them. The other aspect is Gary Gensler is not working with Congress to provide clear regulations, right? And he's flip flopped over the years. He's a big hypocrite. He's a liar. We've seen him lie many times. And he continues to say there's hucksters and scammers and so on and so forth in the industry. I tweeted about it today. You have some of the biggest names entering the crypto market, such as BlackRock, Franklin Templeton and many others filing for Bitcoin spot ETFs. Earlier this year, Charles Schwab, Fidelity and Citadel launched a crypto exchange called ADX Markets. PayPal launched a stablecoin. Deutsche Bank just reported last week they will offer crypto custody. Mastercard launched a CBDC program. Visa expanded their use of USDC stablecoin on Solana. So Gary clearly tried to distract and attack the startups while his Wall Street TradFi buddies come in and take over and look at the facts, right? I just listed out a whole bunch of big names that are coming in. And remember, Gary met with Sam Beckman Fried and FTX officials, didn't do anything. Big collapse happened there. He didn't do anything about Celsius or three hours capital and a whole bunch of other things. He didn't stop Terra Luna or anything like that, right? He just sat back and waited. And I think that was part of his strategy. I think he knew of the things that are happening, but he let them collapse so that they would hurt the market, right? Let the flush out all these startups who look, they're not established like the banking incumbents. And then what happened this year? Oh, I'm going to go after the good actors. I'm going to go after Coinbase, right? I'm going to go after this company and that company and NFTs and many other projects. So it's pretty ridiculous what's happening. But guys, we will win the war. We've seen historically that the disruptive technology will progress. It will get adoption. And if these folks don't get on board and it looks like they're trying to with their tokens, they will get or have their blockbuster moment. Now, speaking of further adoption, blockchain capital raises $580 million for two new funds. Venture capital's firms, record funding comes as space is teeming with exceptional innovators, despite bear market execs says. So the capital keeps coming in investments into the crypto industry. These companies and these funds are investing in both the companies, building the infrastructure, as well as the tokens are very, very bullish. Despite all that happened last year with FTX and Celsius and so forth, there's looking beyond that. They're looking at the future and the horizon of the adoption of this technology and much more. So one is the San Francisco based companies, six early stage fund in line with such funds it has previously launched, while the other is its first so -called opportunity fund. The $580 million marks the company's largest raise in its 10 year history, according to blockchain capital executives, Spencer Bogart, Bart Stevens, and Jason de Piazza. Such funding coming during a bear market reflects our investors trust in our long -term perspective, they said in a Monday blog post, adding that innovation often thrives during tough economic times. Despite the downturn in liquidity prices, we see a space that is teeming with exceptional innovators and founders, each aligned with the first principles of open source innovation, credible neutrality, and censorship resistance, Stevens told block works. The firm's first opportunity fund was conceived as a post dislocation investment vehicle. According to blockchain capital, Bart Stevens, it was designed with a high conviction concentrated mandate to pursue financing opportunities at the later stage. Very bullish news here, my friends. And here we got some more quotes. We felt generalists and newcomers misjudged the opportunity set he added. In contrast today, the fundraising environment for late stage crypto companies is barren, creating a unique and compelling opportunity for targeted capital that understand web three technology. Pretty incredible folks. And this is a lot of capital and more is going to keep coming, right? We're just seeing some of the biggest trad fi names entering a lot of capital being raised by different funds and new funds popping up and they're going to invest in the market and we're going to see continued growth and the S curve adoption keeps moving higher and growing folks. It's happening day by day, week by week, month by month, year by year. Now we got news here in New York financial watchdog proposes strengthened crypto guidelines. The New York financial or the New York department of financial services published proposed guidelines on Monday aimed to strengthen how firms list or delist coins. It also proposed guidance on adding coins to the state's green list. So we're seeing states move in the direction of trying to figure out regulations while the federal government continues to drag their feet. Obviously we got two bills in the house and shout out to patch McHenry and those folks who have been trying to get things through. Even Senator Cynthia Lummis and Christian Gillibrand in the Senate also have a bill, but we need Congress to act, right? Things are moving really slow. They need to put the guardrails in place, but we're going to see a lot of states do this. And I think as they do this and with their grassroots movements and much more, it's going to put pressure on the federal government to eventually act. So I think this is a good thing. However, the devil's in the details. New York can sometimes be very heavy handed. They obviously have the ridiculous bit license, which they should get rid of. But I think that's Wall Street's gatekeeping to allow only companies that they want and much more. So it's tough for a lot of crypto companies to get that bit license in New York. So we shall see what they come up with, but let me give you some details. Since joining DFS, I have made it a priority to ensure the department's regulatory and operational capabilities keep pace with the industry developments to protect consumers and markets. And why DFS Superintendent Adrian Harris said in a statement on Monday, and why DFS has been active in regulating crypto in the state for years, having launched its bit license regime in 2015. A slew of firms have virtual currency licenses in the state, including Coinbase Incorporated, and according to its site, although some firms close up shop in the state. So let's see what they come up with and all the details as it comes out, and we'll have some of the legal experts review it. But I am for regulations. I think they're important. Now, I don't believe in draconian regulations. I believe there's a balance. You allow innovation to flourish, but you protect consumers. That's the balance. But we got to keep our guard up and push back on anything that's draconian. Finally, Malta, they seek to change their crypto rule book to get ready for MICA. So the EU MICA regulatory framework was passed. The EU and the UK are ahead of the United States right now. The country's financial watchdog wants to align its framework with the EU wide rules set to take effect in 2024. So once again, EU and UK ahead, and it looks like these countries and the European Union are going to look to align to this. So this absolutely makes sense. Now, this law and this regulation is not perfect, right? And there's still some fine tuning that's needed, but it's a really great start. And I'm glad they were able to get things through because it just once again shows crypto is not dependent on the United States. This in technology the digital world that we live in and everybody on the internet, it doesn't need the United States land and borders to operate. It can operate from anywhere. Now, obviously I say that, but the United States is the world's largest capital market. So matter of capital raising and funding and so forth, that is certainly a big factor for the United States, but for these projects to launch and to build and to grow, they don't need the United States. And living in the United States, I'm worried that the US is in danger of losing some of these companies and a lot of jobs and economic benefits, but hopefully they can get it right sooner than later. And this EU MICA bill will take effect in 2024. And I think we can expect to see other countries align with it. And that is really great because there's not going to be different rules for different countries, at least in the EU, they can online and provide clarity to the different businesses operating in the EU. So this is good news, I think all around. Well, folks, that's the news. Please let me know what you think about the Citibank token, the SEC taking another big fat L, the judge striking down their requests in the Binance US case. And what do you think about all these items? Leave your thoughts and comments below, hit the five star rating on the podcast platforms, and I'll talk to you all later.

A highlight from Pauls & Barnabas Accountability to the Local Church_10
"Amen. Thank you for tuning us in. I'm Darryl Bailey, servants for Christ as we continue on in the life of the Apostle Paul. And so here we deal with the 10th in our series of the life of the Apostle Paul. Acts chapter 14 verses 21 through 28. This closes out the first missionary journey of Paul as we continue on to get to the second and the third missionary journeys. Here, September the 13th, 20023, the 27th of Elul, 5783 of the Hebrew calendar. Now, we talk about Paul and Barnabas' accountability to the local church. Unfortunately, community ignorance is the way that many churches operate. They think that within their own selves as whatever they come up with, they can just do what they want to and not be attentive to God's Holy Spirit. But God's work is accomplished by God's power, working with God's people. And the church is not to be run by the congregation instead by God's clear standards and plan that he has. And there's a lot of churches, they're just doing their own thing and they're not taking any wisdom and leadership from the Holy Spirit of God. They say, maybe we'll get a bunch of people this way. Maybe we'll get a bunch of people that way. Maybe we'll get this and we'll get that, you know. But they're doing it in their own power and strength instead of the power of God's might. And they will never be successful. Paul and Barnabas, their accountability to the local church says volumes in this particular message of this ending of the first missionary journey of Paul. And so, I want to invite everyone to come and be with us at Theffal Crossroads Baptist Church. Our pastor, Keith Dempsey and First Lady Amy. Sunday schools 10 a .m. Sunday morning worship at 11 and Wednesday nights. Kids for Christ. Boy, did we have a bunch of kids this past Wednesday night. Bunch of, man, kids love kids. And 7 p .m. Wednesday night, come and be with us at 450 Iron Hill Road, Taylorsville, Georgia 30178. Boy, I tell you, the kids had a wonderful time. And so I hope and pray that you begin to bring your family back into the house of God you're before missing out on the greatest blessings that you could ever have. Come and be with us at Theffal Crossroads Baptist Church. Now, AD 47 to 49, if we continue on with Acts chapter 14, verses 21 through 28 of the first missionary journey that we give. And we look at Paul's Acts travels because on land, Iconium, back in Acts chapter 13, the land on Lystra, he started up in Acts chapter 14 on that last part of running and then on land to Derby in Acts chapter 14, verses six to 20 on land and Lystra in verse 21 on land, Iconium in verse 21 and on land, Antioch of Pisidia in verse 21, then on to Perga and verse 25 of Acts chapter 14 on Attila, verse 25. And then from there, he started back from where he started out from the beginning of the first missionary journey all the way back to Antioch of Syria on the Mediterranean Sea, headed back because he had completed his first missionary journey that God had sent him and Barnabas upon to go on. And so. As these sections here really tells of what we're talking about tonight in verses 21 down to verse 28. And I'm glad Charles Rice said how incredible that Christ should be kept outside of his own church, how gracious that he would still seek entry unquote. You know, here we talked about in the past, we talked about Paul's pattern for preaching and how that in chapter 14, it gives a clear picture of God's pattern for bearing a witness to his name. We saw Paul and Barnabas, all the things they experienced and how they had difficulties. They were expelled from Antioch in Pisidia. They took the dust and knocked it off their feet. And they went on to Iconium and then they went to the people where they tried to stone them. And it went on to Lystra where they were treated like gods. The crowds are different in every area of place throughout the world. And when the crowd changed their minds and began to stone Paul, he just got up and went to Derby. That wouldn't all. Paul and Barnabas had the courage to retrace their steps so that they could help encourage the new Christians when they returned home. And they told the church what the Lord had done, not what they had suffered. Paul and Barnabas put Christ first and others second and themselves last. They had a job to do and they were determined by God's grace to do it. And so every one of us, that was God's pattern. It was of seven steps that we talked about and how God expects his servant to be able to preach the glorious gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Then we talked about Paul's distractions in Lystra, how there was a lot of things that distract us from Jesus. We talked about how we spelled the acrostic of Lystra, lost in thought, the Y in yourself, S for sports, the T for television and internet, R for radio and music, A for alcohol and drugs. Who here can get distracted? Everybody. All Christians get distracted and they need to maintain our focus on the Lord. And I'm glad that every one of us, that Jesus is the offer and finisher of all of our faith, amen. And so we can have distractions in these new cars because there's so many buttons and gadgets and everything that we could go down the road. These millennials think their telephone is more important than their own driving ability to drive down the road safely. That they want to text somebody and they want a conversation with somebody they can't see. And it's a sad thing because Paul and Barnas was preaching on the city streets of Lystra and they ended up healing a crippled man that had never heard the gospel message of salvation. And it stirred the crowds and the streets that got such an attention for the miracle healing that was misconstrued as they were gods. And they were a distraction and they ended up being called Mercury and Jupiter, which thought to be the gods of that first area. I believe that if we're honest and we'll look deep into our hearts with all the spiritual distractions that surprise us, we get distracted sometimes by the choir. Oh my goodness. We get caught up. Where's the ensemble today? Oh my goodness. We ain't got enough people to have the choir. And I get all distracted by all of these things. That's got to happen a certain way in the church because it's always happened that way in the church. And they've got to continue to do that that way. What a distraction. Why not just follow the Holy Spirit of God? Man, I'm going to tell you, maybe the preacher might come in one Sunday said, why don't y 'all go shut up and sit down? I got to preach. Hallelujah. Amen. And so let's get to it. Amen. And so in our own imagination, we get to pay attention to all the things except listening to God us communicate through the gospel message of the minister behind the pulpit. Then we get up and all of a sudden we got somebody that's spirit fed, but we don't want to be spirit led. And so all of a sudden we begin to overlook the message. Oh my goodness. That preacher could have preached a little bit longer. He could have preached shorter. Oh my goodness. He could have used this. He could have used that. We begin to critique the message that God is sending to the church and we get up there and get distracted by all of these things. God help us today. And so I'm glad that the life of the apostle Paul here is that message of the last part that he's talking to us about. And he's telling us that there are two great ministries when you come to church. Amen. Two great ministries in the church. Listen, I want you to look for this and remember this pastors, the two great ministries in the church is the preaching of the gospel and number two, making disciples. Did you hear me? It's preaching the gospel and then it's making disciples. We preach the gospels and some folks get saved and they don't never come back and we can't even disciple them. They all of a sudden they thought they got saved that one time and they don't need to come back. They join the church. I've had them join the church and never saw them again ever. They never came back. But how can you disciple somebody when they don't let you disciple them? And everybody's got all the answers that we can do it this way and that way. But then there's a third thing. Let me say it this way. The third most important thing in the ministry and the church is not only the preaching of the gospel, not only making disciples listen to me, the strengthening of the church, the unity of that church. It has to stay strong. It has to stay unified and there can nothing come between anything in politics or cliques or all of this or this deacon or deaconess or that that thinks they're going to run the whole picture. And this family name of the Smiths and the Joneses and the justice and all of these other last names. That's a prominent somebody in the community that they say we got to run the church because we're a prominent family name. No, that's not how God wants it. God don't want it that way. And so there's a terrible neglect in both evangelism and strengthening the church. Just how are churches made strong? That's what we're talking about. Paul and Barnabas had an accountability to the local church in this series. And in doing so, we see again.
A highlight from Michael Saylor: Bitcoin to $5 Million is Inevitable | EP 824
"It's all going to zero against Bitcoin. It's going up for everyone. Bitcoin! You're against Bitcoin, you're against freedom. Yo! Welcome to Simba the Bitcoin Live, we're your number one source for the peaceful Bitcoin revolution cover breaking news called dramatic warfare will be your guide through the separation of money and state today is September 14th 2023 another day in Bitcoin another day on the Bitcoin roller coaster they don't call the Bitcoin roller coaster for no reason there's ups and downs we hit 25k we're back to 26 ,697 but if you zoom out if you zoom out in the grand scheme of things if you believe in the meme 21 million divided by infinity or infinity divided by 21 million I think it is we all know we're early but there's something I want to talk about today specifically there was a very famous spaces that Michael Saylor did and I think he did it with some some legacy media people there's a huge spaces and there was three things that he said needed to happen in order for Bitcoin to 10x and then during that spaces he even said if these thing if these three things happen Bitcoin will inevitably hit five million dollars per coin now what were those three things first thing was the changing of the FASB rules right with the accounting the fair value accounting rules and that happened not too long ago we broke the news I wasn't there I had some swan duties that day but Opti and I think it was Rustin were holding it down so we covered that and then number two was large banks right I'm not talking about like small banks or you know these these Bitcoin crypto focused banks I'm talking about large banks offering institutional custody of Bitcoin of digital assets for their clients check that off that's happening you have banks all around the world whether it's Panko Santander the news that came out today which is I wanted to cover this is Deutsche Bank is applying for a license to custody digital assets for their customers and then there and the third thing which has been like the big news of this year is the BlackRock spot Bitcoin ETF or now I would even I wouldn't even call it the BlackRock just a Bitcoin spot ETF those are the three things that Michael Saylor said needed to happen in order for Bitcoin to just go parabolic into this five million you know etc etc and those things are basically already happening like the FASB check that off right that was a huge does a massive deal so check that off the list that doesn't start that doesn't start going into action until the year 2025 then you have so that's the FASB ruling then you have banks large banks cussing Bitcoin check that off the list as well really the only thing out of those three things is the BlackRock spot ETF or sorry the spot I keep saying BlackRock maybe it's a Freudian slip the spot Bitcoin ETF how long will Gary Gensler be able to delay this he got absolutely hammered in in Congress there was a hearing this week so yeah I mean this is pretty crazy and it's really interesting if you've been here for a while you know Opti and I are class of 2016 Opti's class of 2017 but it's the same epoch really you know one of the narratives that existed when Bitcoin was falling you know it fell from 20k back down to 3k and one of the coping narratives all the way down was the institutions are coming the institutions are coming the institutions are coming I think you could say without a doubt that the institutions are here you can't deny that now the thing is do the institutions have the necessary infrastructure to onboard on to Bitcoin and I think that's an open question but you can't deny that the institutions want exposure to Bitcoin that's undeniable right we broke the news the other day that BlackRock had a lot of micro strategy had a lot of exposure to public to publicly traded Bitcoin mining companies as well right so it's some very interesting stuff now here's the thing though right so yes this number go up whoop -dee -doo but remember the revolution is individuals taking back financial sovereignty by taking Bitcoin into self -custody so just because you're buying a Bitcoin spot ETF for BlackRock's Bitcoin spot ETF do Charles Schwab or Robin Hood or whatnot that that isn't real Bitcoin that's paper Bitcoin that's an IOU the only way that you get true real Bitcoin is by you know buying Bitcoin earning Bitcoin mining Bitcoin and taking that said Bitcoin into cold storage right and then preferably the step after that is stop trusting someone else's copy of the blockchain run your own run your own node the one I recommend personally because it's the one I use is start 9 they're freaking awesome so definitely check them out if you're interested in running a Bitcoin node but yeah it's a very interesting times that we're living in but uh you know I don't think I've ever been so bullish how you doing Opti and we're in the the simply Bitcoin merch today bro you're modeling I love it yeah yeah it's uh it's raining right now it's it's officially hoodie season so you're raining but you're inside yeah whatever I feel like wearing a hoodie today if it's nice it's comfy I'm wearing this all the time get yourself one at simply Bitcoin calm yeah man it's hey let your boy live for once geez yeah crazy you're not in uniform bro you you went from collared shirts to hoodies what happened you're regressing well suits coming soon I had a conversation with Chris yesterday I missed that episode man I love Chris shout out the coin shout out our boys over a Bitcoin mag but yeah crazy uh crazy developments and we really talked about it yesterday as well pretty pretty extensively on the show of how it is undeniable that the institutions want your Bitcoin there is so much institutional investment and there's just so much capital waiting on the sidelines for everyone for to get a shirt into Bitcoin you know like all the biggest asset managers well not all of them but many of the big asset managers of the world are looking to get exposure to Bitcoin we're seeing huge banks do the same thing and it just goes to show you that you guys are early and we are on the precipice of an amazing bull run as far as I'm concerned and now is the time to be stacking sats it's still what 26k so like we got the best opportunity ever and I know everyone is losing their mind because this bear market's been so long but this is where legends are made anyways on today's culture I saw this a couple tweets from Tom Luongo and if you guys aren't familiar with him he's a great I guess you call him like he is kind of low -key a gold bug and I know he's kind of maybe loosely understands Bitcoin but he created this meme in and I really wanted to touch on it today because it kind of changed my views on what we've been talking about we're always talking about you know the normies out there or in the not so nice way you know the sheeple out there and he coined this new phrase about like the masses comfortable are our wolves and I really want to cover this because I think it does change the framing and it's a little more positive view on what's going on in the world and we talk about it constantly that people need to feel pain and once they feel that pain and they wake up man shits gonna get really crazy and it really does feel like this is where we are right now so you know just prepare yourself it's it's you know are we on the precipice of a global recession who knows are we you know are we currently in a depression I don't know the official numbers are lying to us but we know that inflation is higher than they want and your purchasing power is going down the drain and I have these conversations with a bunch of my Bitcoin friends and we're all feeling the same thing it's like man dude things are getting more expensive and it's only a matter of time until people start to ask what the hell is going on right now and this is why we keep planting the seeds here on the show you know in personal conversations with people in real life and it's like we have built the foundation for people to protect themselves to get on the exit boat get on the safety net which is Bitcoin so get on the Bitcoin standard guys get on the Bitcoin standard that's right just get on the Bitcoin standard get on the life raft and you know you be watching the world around you doing doing its thing but you know that your future your family's future your wealth your time your energy your work is protected by the largest decentralized

billion dollars with a B Bitcoin versus gold market cap four point zero seven percent very very very nice all right good numbers overall you know I love my favorites that I always tell you guys this is the realized monetary inflation of Bitcoin 1 .75 % that number is going to continue to go down forever so it continues to take fiat currencies absolute school even if they get it to their targeted Holy Grail 2 % inflation you know it's not even gonna come close anyways I do have some ways you got my favorite number is block height cuz that number is going up forever Laura that that that number just it just makes an all -time high every ten minutes the matter what next block it's almost like a coin walk next block anyways here's a clip I have two clips for you guys here's a clip from SEC chair chair Gary Gensler and he said some interesting things at the hearing we're gonna play you some clips of this hearing as the days go by though so let's check out this clip and I have another one then we'll talk about it and help protect Americans from the crypto abuses that cost consumers billions if they were to live up to the investor protection built into their current laws it would help investors but right now unfortunately there's significant non -compliance and it's a field which is rife with fraud abuse and misconduct and help protect Americans from the so I I want a friend two things right I agree in a way and I agree in the sense that it is full of fraud it is full of abuse it is full of misconduct now the initial part and help protect Americans from the crypto abuses that cost consumers billions I'm gonna reframes that right from the crypto abuse that cost consumers billions fine you could say shit coins you could say this what about from the governmental inflationary abuse that cost people all around the world millions if not billions of dollars why is that never talked about and that brings me to one of Tucker's episodes that he did in Argentina he did an episode about a 10 -minute episode covering what's happening in Argentina he's gonna cover he's gonna interview Javier Maly Javier Maly is he is he's a hardcore Austrian economist libertarian he wants to end the central bank you know he wants to cut down on the administrative state all of that stuff he said some pretty crazy stuff not gonna lie Tucker's gonna interview him tomorrow but what was really interesting about Tucker's opening monologue which we're going to cover extensively tomorrow is he said the quiet part out loud the invade and inflation is deft politicians aren't productive the way that they raise money is through direct taxation but they could only do that for so long until people revolt so they do that through the hidden tax of inflation we must continue to chip away at this like you know peacefully of course but Chico chip away at this move the Overton window start get start getting people to ask the question what is money why does my money lose purchasing power is it necessary for my money to lose purchasing power that's when people are gonna start asking really big questions and remember they do not have a response to this anyways talking about shifting the Overton window here's Joe squawk five years ago you would have never have believed this we did have a a Bitcoiner who was a writer for Forbes and he got a bit upset when I said that the legacy corporate media changed their tune because of the black rock spot ETF and he said no that's not true I was working at Forbes from before okay I take his word for it he's a cable are news you trying to tell me that the interest from black rock to launch a spot ETF has not influenced their change of tune whatsoever I don't know about that anyways here's Joe squawk it's about a one -minute clip and then we'll talk about it and move on to crypto if you'd indulge me for a second because we always have these crypto conversations and there seems to be this thing happening I don't know Joe we were talking about $25 ,000 with Bitcoin meanwhile black rock and all these folks all the folks that we thought were never gonna do this are now doing it and yet it's not moving at all well it's moving today well I mean sure 26 this is 26 it was for when when we started saying it wasn't going anywhere 4 ,000 oh okay but so but the question is is this now a risk on a risk off thing what do you how do you even correlate this to what's happening with the Fed because for a long time used to talk about crypto in regard to the Fed so I think crypto settling as part of the ecosystem I think people have recognized it is not the new global currency people have also recognized not going to disappear tomorrow is becoming institutionalized and I think actually if I were a crypto person I think this maturation process is a good thing where it moves from day to day is I can't really comment on that I still think it's outperformed every asset one year five year and ten year I mean I think I think he's pretty jaded a little bit right like you know it's going to zero at 4 ,000 and mind you like Pete Russo does a great job doing this but like he goes back in time and finds like original posts of people which is why it's so important to zoom out when in doubt of people posting a Bitcoin isn't going anywhere and Bitcoin was at like $100 Bitcoin was at like $200 at the time right so like when in doubt zoom out obviously Joe is completely converted he's like why have we been talking about the short -term volatility when we started when we started covering this it was literally at $4 ,000 it's at 26 ,000 at the at the you know depths of bear market he gets it I mean and this is actually one of the things that has helped me orange pill as many people as possible it hasn't been me saying the bitcoins better money it hasn't been me saying like oh look you know separate money from state hasn't been me saying you know it's a deflationary currency blah blah blah blah blah blah you know it's been the biggest converter of people you plant the seed you say Bitcoin right they ignore you for like a couple of years and two three years later pass number goes up and all of a sudden you get that text from that friend that you haven't talked to you in a long time and he's like hey about that Bitcoin thing ng you is the biggest converter of people it is the biggest orange pillar in my opinion is the most effective way and clear you could see that with Joe right he was like hmm yeah I mean we started covering this was at 4k I don't know why you're talking about the short -term volatility what the hell's wrong with you anyways why are you pulling that up Opti oh it's from wine it's from wine anyways why what's why you know all the disgrace you've ever done and all the controlling calling me why it might be the worst no I'm just trolling love you wine anyways first and foremost you know shout out the Joe Kernen absolutely love to see him just constantly battle the corporate BS FUD around Bitcoin and and I say this all the time you know like number go up love it or hate it is the fundamental thing driving all a Bitcoin adoption there's that and then on the negative side all of the crazy stuff coming out from you know the bureaucrats out there we covered the g20 stuff where they're trying to roll out a digital ID CBDC central bank digital control mechanisms and these two things together are in my opinion the driving forces for Bitcoin adoption it's like you we say it all the time and and the memes been catching on Nico I don't know if you've been seeing it on Twitter but Bitcoin is slavery it's starting to catch on and people are starting to notice that it's not even hyperbolic anymore but anyways starting with the first video I totally agree with that congressman or whatever like crypto is full of fraud like what a hundred percent agree hence why we're Bitcoin only like there's Bitcoin and there's shit coin and it triggered the thought in my mind about I think I brought it up last week it was the idea I forget what video it was but we played something on in the numbers about the the scene versus the unseen consequences of economics and it's very clearly visible the scene consequences of crypto scams and it very easily noticed and you know it's always rolled out as like the detriment to the whole Bitcoin industry and those are the scene consequences obviously there's been a lot of people getting rug pulled getting you know losing their their life savings because of shit coin scams and so it's very easily an emotional thing you can roll out so people are like ah let's protect the little guy but as we've going to cover and I really thought you were gonna play that Tucker Carlson video that you put on your Twitter I'm sick dude I mean so I was divided I was divided about what I wanted to make the show I was like I was like are we gonna make it about Tucker are we gonna make this about the sailor I think the sailor thing I was I was much more excited about the sailor thing it's a little little thing came out in my head I'm like holy cow the three things that Michael sailor said needed to happen for Bitcoin to hit five million all of those things have happened they've all happened right so I was like we have to cover this we will cover Tucker tomorrow's really actually made a thumbnail for everything it was awesome but I guess I guess you know we'll put we'll put a pin on that thought but tomorrow remember we're gonna be talking about the unseen consequences of money printing and that always gets obfuscated it always gets lost on people because it's not like a linear connection you know like you you gotta you know there's some nuance to this and most people can't think past like 20 seconds you know ADHD or whatever like we're all being inundated with so much dopamine from from social media that we either tune out or it just like it doesn't seem like it's important and and I can see people in the chat saying the same thing that we always hear is like once you start talking about Bitcoin once you say the B word people instantly tune out and it's only a matter of time until people wake up to what's going on here so you know plant those Bitcoin fundamentals into people's minds without using the B word usually helps and and goes a long way and then you find like hey you know have you heard about Bitcoin here's the pill take it but yeah man it just it just goes to show that the world is waking up and every metric that I'm seeing is pointing towards the fact that I think in 2025 more people are going to wake up to the scam that is Fiat and of course the safety boat that is Bitcoin and hey we're here for it so I'm I am super excited yes yes hold on hold on Arthur you can buy our merch with Bitcoin if you so want to yeah exactly go and go click scan the QR code it'll take you directly to the website and you could you could pay you pay in Bitcoin I think a lot I think wine set up the lightning yeah yeah yeah we got you got we got you guys back we got you guys rep some simply Bitcoin merch anyways so yeah man it's a really really exciting stuff alright guys let's jump into the news we got a lot to cover today before we get into news actually right now we are currently sitting pretty at 70 likes help us maintain our streak let's break a hundred likes within the out first hour of the live stream so if you're enjoying the show make sure to smash that like but it smashes mess mess wait wait wait can we do a legacy smash the like button Nico something like that anyways guys let's get to the news the daily news I want to give a shout out to our sponsor foundation devices it's self -custody done right they built a premium grade hardware wallet called passport right here in the u .s.
A highlight from Christ-Centered Evangelism - John 4:27-42
"Alright John chapter 4 Turn to John chapter 4 tonight and We are we're bringing an end to the story of the woman at the well tonight, and we've been a John since January and We're gonna get to the nobleman's son and finish up chapter 4 and then take a break in the gospel of John We are going to preach verse by verse through the whole book, but I don't want to wear you out on it So we're gonna we're gonna take a break from there, and then we'll come back to it later on in the year but John chapter 4 we've been working through this gospel and so let's let's read our text tonight, and then we'll do a little bit of catching up to where we are and Jump into the message tonight John chapter 4 we'll start reading in verse number 1 and then read through the text We're gonna cover tonight when therefore the Lord knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John Though Jesus himself baptized not but his disciples He left Judea and departed again in the Galilee and he must needs go through Samaria Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar Near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph Now Jacob's well was there Jesus therefore being wearied with his journey sat thus on the well, and it was about the sixth hour There comeeth a woman of Samaria to draw water Jesus saith unto her give me to drink For his disciples were gone away to buy it to under the city to buy me And sayeth the woman of Samaria unto him How is it that thou being a Jew asked me of a drink? Which him a woman of Samaria for the Jews have no dealings with Samaritans Jesus answered and said unto her if thou knewest the gift of God and who it is that saith to thee Give me to drink thou wouldest asked of him and he would have given thee living water The woman saith to him sir thou hast nothing to draw with and the well is deep From whence then has thou that living water are thou greater than our father Jacob which gave us the well and Drank thereof himself and his children and his cattle Jesus answered and said unto her Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again but Whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give them Shall never thirst but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up in the everlasting life The woman saith unto him sir. Give me this water that I thirst not neither come hither to draw Jesus saith unto her go Call thy husband and come hither The woman answered and said I have no husband Jesus said unto her Thou hast well said I have no husband For thou hast had five husbands and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband and that just thou truly The woman saith unto him, sir I perceive that thou art a prophet our father's worshiped in this mountain and you say that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship Jesus saith unto her woman believe me the hour cometh when you shall neither in this mountain nor yet at Jerusalem worship the Father You worship, you know, not what we know what we worship for salvation is of the Jews but the hour cometh and now is When the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth for the Father seeketh such to worship him God is a spirit and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth the woman saith unto him I Know that messiahs cometh, which is called Christ when he is come. He'll tell us all things Jesus saith unto her I That speak unto thee am he? All right And here's our text tonight verse 27 and upon this came the disciples and marveled that he talked with the woman Yet no man said what seekest thou or why talkest thou with her? The woman then left her water pot and went on went her way into the city and saith to the men Come see a man, which told me all things I ever ever I did is Not this the Christ Then they went out of the city and came in him in the meanwhile his disciples prayed him saying master eat But he said unto them. I have meat to eat that you know not of Therefore said the disciples one to another have they even brought him ought to eat Jesus saith to them my meat is to do the will of him that sent me to finish his work Say not ye there are yet four months and then cometh the harvest Behold I say unto you lift up your eyes and look on the fields for they are white already to harvest He that reapeth receiveth wages and gathers fruit into life eternal But are that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together and Herein is that saying true one soweth and another reapeth. I Sent you to reap that whereon you bestowed no labor Other men labored that you are entered into their labors And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for the saying of the woman which testified He told me of all that ever I did So when the Samaritans were coming to him they besought him that he would tarry with them, and he abode there two days and many more believed because of his own word and Said unto the woman now we believe not because of thy saying for we have heard him ourselves and know that This is indeed the Christ the Savior of the world We've worked through the Gospel of John we spent some time in the first 18 verses I think five messages starting off on the prologue of John which is sort of the introduction of the book where John basically says Hey, this is what the book's gonna be about it's about Jesus Christ, and he's the Son of God and by the way He is God and so he says it's sort of you look back at the 18 verses if you ever want to just Look back and read those 18 verses as we go through the book you see how he's proving Everything that he stated in the first 18 verses Chapter one ends with a sort of a thing with John the Baptist and his followers and they're saying hey, who are you? why are you baptizing he tells him Messiah's coming and Then talks about him baptizing Jesus, and then Jesus comes through at the end of chapter one John says look behold the Lamb of God and two of his followers Which we have identified as John and Andrew left and followed Jesus, and then he picks up Peter he picks up Philip and Nathaniel Then you move into chapter 2 chapter 2 they go to Cana and they go to a wedding and Jesus does the first Recorded miracle where he turns the water into wine which is an illustration of the new birth The changing from the old which is only an act of God the end of chapter 2 We have the scene of the temple where Jesus goes During the Passover and he comes along the temple and all the commerce going on in the temple and there's supposed to be the place of worship and sacrifice and they turn it into a bargaining horse race type of atmosphere where there's loud noises and people getting cheated and people haggling and all these things and so Jesus runs out the money changers in the temple then they question him about it and Then he ends the chat in chapter 2 ends with how he did many signs and people believed on him But he did not believe with what their faith was and then we broke that down and sort of basically said yeah They tried to believe in him They they believed in what they saw But they weren't Jesus did not have any faith in what they believe and I equated that to what we see around today I was talking to my wife about this we had a long we were talking I had a discussion about this last night And I said, you know, I did a study in Sunday school once last year two years ago on the church, I think And I remember when I brought in that list of all of those the 30 largest churches in the country That's just the country not the world and the number 30 had like 17 ,000 members the mode the highest the largest church in the country had like 65 ,000 people and We talked about how these are the largest churches the world has ever seen I mean going back before this big church growth movement in the 80s the largest Congregations And churches to history was like Charles Spurgeon who had like 5 ,000 members And so now you have all of these people going to these churches and I asked her I said you have more people going to church Now than ever before since the church started I said is the country better off and She said she sat there and thought a minute and she said no and I said so what does that tell you a? Lot of people going around thinking they're saved that really aren't Was that old Negro spiritual that says a lot of people talk about heaven ain't going there And so that was sort of what verse 25 was was discussing Then you transition in chapter 3 and we have the discussion where Nicodemus Approaches Jesus at night and they have a discourse and he says that in order to see the kingdom of God the kingdom of heaven In order to see heaven you must be born again So Jesus and Nicodemus have this discourse up to verse 21 and then the story sort of transitions to John the Baptist and somebody comes with their little finger and tries to stir up a little dispute between John the Baptist and Jesus and John has the famous statement.
A highlight from Andrew Klavan (Encore Continued)
"Welcome to The Eric Metaxas Show with your host, Eric Metaxas. Hey there, folks. Welcome to the show. Today, we are actually doing something a little different. We've done it before. We are airing my conversation from Socrates in the City with the extraordinary Eric Metaxas Show. Andrew Klavan. One of the best ever. If you want more information, go to socratesinthecity .com. And now, here is that event. But in Paradise Lost, Milton is trying to show that there's a difference between rebelling against a king, which he had done. He had endorsed the beheading of Charles I and had to run for his life after Charles II came in. And he was trying to show that Paradise Lost is his attempt to show the difference between that and rebelling against God, which is rebelling against goodness and creation. And so that idea, well, how do we now rebel against kings and rebel against the church and yet not rebel against God, was where Wordsworth and Coleridge kind of started without even knowing it. They didn't know they were doing this. I mean, Coleridge might have. He was so brilliant. But they wrote this book called Lyrical Ballads, which transformed English poetry. And it's a book in which they sort of say, we're going to show how the imagination in collaboration with reality transforms and enchants reality and how it brings even the smallest of people nobility. And they basically reinvented this Christian ethos through nature, through looking at nature, which they didn't, like I said, Coleridge knew he was doing it, but Wordsworth, I'm not sure, actually understood. Wordsworth ended his life as a Christian, but it took him a long time to come there. And they sort of passed this journey on to John Keats, who was the greatest English poet since Shakespeare. He lived 25 years. He had about one month, about six weeks of writing some of the greatest poetry that has ever been written and then got tuberculosis and died. And this period of great creativity, I just want to say this one thing because it's so fascinating to me. His brother had died of tuberculosis. His was poetry getting terrible reviews. He was poor. He had a cough. He's probably starting to think, oh my God, I'm getting tuberculosis. He's absolutely depressed. He can't write. He's taking a walk in Hampstead Heath, and he looks up, and who's coming toward him? Coleridge. And Coleridge takes him on a 40 -minute walk during which Coleridge never shuts up. He just talks ceaselessly, and suddenly this poetry comes pouring out of Keats, Ode on a Grecian Urn, Ode on a Nightingale, Ode to Autumn, the greatest poetry since Shakespeare. And then he dies. And the poetry is about, almost all of it is about, okay, there is this beautiful eternal thing out there, and here am I in this world of death and pain. How do I cross the barrier? And he tries to do it through art, through the Grecian Urn. He tries to do it through the imagination, and he can't quite do it. And one day it just happens to him in his Ode to Autumn. He just writes this perfect poem where the observer and the scene meld into one. And he doesn't know it's Christianity, but that's what it is. I wonder, I constantly wonder, what if he had lived another 25 years? What would he have seen? He understood that the soul was immortal. He understood he's the one who said beauty is truth and truth is beauty, which can only make sense if that beauty is connecting us to something beyond ourselves. That's the only way that makes sense. And I just don't know what would have happened to him, but he didn't live, and basically the romantics fail. They kind of fade away, and this materialism that rules our lives now, where we think like, oh, you feel like a man? Well, we'll cut your body into a man costume and you'll be a man. And at the same time, you say, well, I feel this is immoral. You'll say, no, you're wrong. Follow the signs. Well, actually, that's the link, right? In other words, maybe I'm oversimplifying the romantics and the whole period, but what happened is feelings became paramount so that reality becomes subjective and whatever I feel is it. Well, it's a weird binary because the idea is the basic, if you boil theism down to its most basic idea, it's that matter has meaning. If I torture a child, that's bad. It's not bad because we all agree it's bad. If everybody in the world said it was great, it would still be bad. That's the idea that there is a supernatural, something above the nature. If that's gone, then not only do your feelings mean everything, your feelings also mean nothing, and that's where you get this kind of confusion from the left. Yes, if you feel like a woman, I can cut up your body and you'll be a woman, but if you say cutting up someone's body to make them a woman is wrong, so it's just your subjective feeling. That doesn't mean anything. So it's this kind of double paradox where your feelings become everything, but they are nothing. Well, that's the problem with that thing we call reality, right? I mean, it's kind of like it's a stacked deck. God created reality, and if you can convert people to reality, they will be led to him if they're gonna be intellectually consistent. Okay, so one of the things that I just loved about this book, and there's so many things, but you bring these figures to life. When you describe Coleridge and Keats and all of them, and I realize that's something that also had fallen out of fashion by the time that I was in college in the 80s, where we didn't seem to care about these figures as figures, and you sort of, you bring them to life, so in some ways, it's not a novel, but there are a lot of fun stories in this book about amazing, crazy, brilliant people trying to work these things out in their lives and in their art. Well, if you think about it, Britain is an island the size of Oregon, and on it in this one generation, or it's two generations, but it's the same time, is Coleridge, Wordsworth, Blake, Shelley, Keats, and Byron, the six greatest poets in the English language besides Shakespeare and Milton, are all living together on this island, and so they're all nuts, because they're poets, right? They're wild men, they're falling apart half the time. Coleridge is an absolute ruin of a human being. Byron is screwing everybody, male or female, he can get his hands on. Shelley wants to be doing that, but isn't quite, and then, and one of the people that I deal with is Mary Shelley. One of my favorite chapters in the book is on Frankenstein, because here's Mary Shelley who adores Shelley. She adores this man she's run off with. He's left his wife, and she's run off with him, and she adored and worshiped her father, and now she adores and worships Shelley, and he's basically treating her, as Byron and Shelley treated all the women they came in contact with, he's basically treating her like crap, and he believes in free love, and he doesn't know why she's so depressed when her children die. He's depressed that she's not paying attention to him, and she writes this book, Frankenstein, where she says it's about a man who tries to steal God's thunder by creating life, but I point out that we all create, people create life. We create life of the things that we have. What Frankenstein, what Dr. Frankenstein does is he creates life without a woman, and her nightmare is essentially the nightmare of femininity, the female aspect of life, and femininity and womanhood becoming obsolete, and if you follow, she invents, in that moment, she invents science fiction. She really invents the modern genre of science fiction, and if you follow science fiction, so much of it is about that.
A highlight from The Debut of NFL Sunday Ticket on YouTube
"Welcome everyone to SI Media with Jimmy Traina. I am your host, Jimmy Traina. Thank you so much for listening. Bonus episode, bonus podcast on this Monday after the first Sunday of the NFL season.

That's what this pod is with Sal. It's like a full -blown Train of Thoughts. So listen to Sal and I discuss it, come back later in the week for a regular episode.

All right, let's get to it now with Sal. Full episode here on NFL Sunday Ticket on YouTube. All right here right now on SI Media with Jimmy Traina. Welcome everyone to SI Media with Jimmy Traina. Thanks for listening. Bonus episode this week. This will be one of two. We're taping this on Monday after the first week of the NFL season, the debut of the new Sunday Ticket on Yahoo, on Yahoo. What a dope. On YouTube, on YouTube, I had to get on with Sal and we're just gonna riff about our Sunday Ticket experiences in week one. Sal, how are you? I'm great and I'm excited to have this conversation with you because we've had this many times over the years at dinner, at our houses, whatever, discussing this exact thing. And we both, I know, had great experiences yesterday. So I'm looking forward to talking about it with you. Well, let's start with this. There are many, many train of thought segments on this podcast over the last three months where you said you were not going to get Sunday Ticket. You were not going to get it. You're just focusing on the New York teams. And then I got the text message. Let's see here if I can find the text message. Even, even early, I noticed you were starting to cave a little bit earlier this week. Actually, 9 .34 a .m. on Sunday, I'm still on the fence. And then at 10 .45 a .m., the text came in from Sal. I'm in. It's like Michael Jordan returning to the NBA. I know. I thought about writing to you. I'm back. I was thinking about it as the week went on. I told you, like, because of the lineup with the playing Giants Sunday and the Jets playing Monday, that to me made it worse. Or you were saying, oh, well, you're going to have the national games. Yeah. But knowing that I didn't have to watch those games at that time made it more appealing for me to get the get the Sunday ticket. So I kind of thought I'd be going that way. And then Sunday morning I was like, fuck it. Let me just get this thing in. It's worth the money. Let me see what it's all about. And is it great. So so let me do a little preamble here before we get into it, because I want to say this and let me know if you agree, disagree. But before we even discuss this, I think what we need to establish is this. How you feel about Sunday ticket, whether it's direct TV, YouTube, the changes or it's it's going to depend on how you watch football, number one, and it's going to depend on what services you have. Now, for instance, Sal has direct TV. I have I don't have direct TV. Oh, oh, you have optimum cable. Correct. OK. Optimum cable. You were scamming the direct TV Sunday ticket all these years. That's right. All right. I did have direct TV. Right. And this is an important part of it. I don't want to gloss over it. And then I moved into the city and I was not allowed to get direct TV. So what they did was allow me to stream Sunday tickets. So I have been able to stream Sunday ticket for several years. So whether you have optimum like Sal, I have Verizon, Fios. Some people have direct TV. Some people don't have any cable. They have streaming services. That's a factor in all this. And then the other thing that I think added so much confusion over the last couple of weeks and is early yesterday there's also this huge Sunday ticket is different based on whether you have YouTube TV or you're just using YouTube. Now, Sal and I both have cable, so we're just using YouTube. If you have YouTube TV, the experience is different. So there's a lot of layers to this. It's very convoluted. I'm going to do my best to try to break it down for you now. So the biggest thing is this. If you have YouTube TV, you're good to go with Sunday ticket with your in -market and out -of -market games. You have nothing to worry about. If you don't have YouTube TV, like Sal and I, you're not getting the local market game. So on Sunday here in New York, Steelers, Niners was on Fox at one o 'clock. Browns, Bengals was on CBS at one o 'clock. Those games are not part of our Sunday ticket packages on YouTube. If you have YouTube TV, they were. So if you don't have YouTube TV and you just have YouTube, you have to have more than one television. I think if you want to watch all the games, if you care about one team, you're fine. You really do need to have two TVs because what I did was I had on my big TV, the multi -view with the four games. And on the second TV, I had one of the local games because that's how you have to do it. So, so far I weigh in on what I've said so far. Yes. Okay. Question here. Number one, if I had YouTube TV, do I then get the local games as part of the game mix? Yes. Oh, shit. See, so I may consider then, I don't know if I'm realistically going to do it, but that to me is like the number one thing that's been missing forever on the prior service. And now that I cannot have, because like you, I like to have the game mix and the four box grid, but it automatically takes out whatever local game is on. And I hate that. So here in New York, we could not get a four game multi -view that had either Steelers Niners or Browns Bengals in it on Sunday. Cause those are in market games. So there was no multi -view whether it was four games, three games that had those games in it. If you had YouTube TV, those games were part of the multi -view. So you, so you, so you would consider getting rid of optimum and getting YouTube TV. Well, I didn't know that that was the case. I mean, I probably, truth be told, I'll never be a cord cutter, but if I were to get it in addition, it might be worth it at least just for the season. Now I screwed up because I bought the ticket. Although I guess you have this period now where it's kind of, um, you know, the tree trial period and I can make a decision at the end of the week, but, uh, I'd rather than go back and get the ticket much cheaper if you buy YouTube TV, I think. Right. You know, YouTube TV is like $80 a month. It's like a cable service.

A highlight from 1396: Bitcoin Will Hit $5,000,000 By This Date - Michael Saylor
"Lots to cover today. In today's show, Bitcoin's energy value metric puts the Bitcoin fair value at $47 ,000 per coin. And quoting Max Keiser, don't underestimate Bitcoin, it's destroying all the central banks and the nation states. Max also says that properly secured Bitcoin is the first truly unconfiscatable property that humans have ever known, preach. Also in today's show, approximately 182 individuals globally now own cryptocurrency worth at least $100 million. I'll be breaking down this latest new study, as well as Congressman Tom Emmer sponsors the amendment to limit the SEC's crypto oversight. We'll also be discussing $73 trillion wealth transfer is incoming, according to legendary billionaire Ray Dalio. Also in today's show, the Bitcoin revolution will not be televised. It's here, fam. El Salvador tunnels into volcanoes to power cryptocurrency, mining hubs. We'll also be discussing Michael Saylor, who recently shared three catalysts which will take the Bitcoin price to $5 million per coin within the next 36 months. We'll also be taking a look at the overall crypto market, all this plus so much more in today's show. Yo, what's good crypto fam? This is first and foremost, a video show. So if you want the full premium experience with video, visit my YouTube channel at cryptonewsalerts .net. Again, that's cryptonewsalerts .net. Welcome to everyone just tuning in. Welcome to another Sat Stackin' Saturday, a beautiful weekend here. Today is September 9th, 2023. I'm your host JV, and this is pod episode number 1396. So let's get it. Let's kick it off with today's market watch. As you can see here, Bitcoin barely in the red, maintaining $25 ,800. We have Ether barely holding on to $1 ,600. And checking out coinmarketcap .com, we barely have the crypto market cap holding on to that trillion dollar milestone. We're roughly $14 billion in volume in the past 24 hours. That means the volume is down roughly 50%. Like, whoa. With the Bitcoin dominance, which has been pretty stagnant at 48 .3%, and the Ether dominance at 18 .8%. And checking out the top 100 crypto gainers at the past 24 hours, we have Mina leading the pack, up almost 4%, trading just above $0 .39. Followed by Stellar Lumens, up almost 4%, trading above $0 .13. Followed by KuCoin token, up 3 .5%, trading at $4 .19. And checking out the top 100 crypto gainers for the past week, it's a pretty mixed bag. We do have gainers, we do have losers. And surprisingly, FTT, the scam token created by FTX and Sam Bankman -Fried is up 12%, leading the pack. And checking out the crypto greed and fear index, we're currently rated at $41 in fear. Yesterday at $46, last week at $39, and last month at $53, which is neutral. So there you have it. Welcome, everyone, in that live chat. I appreciate all the support. Let me know where you're tuning in from, and if you have any comments, questions, or concerns, drop them in the chat. At the end of the show, we'll be reading all of those comments out loud. Now let's dive into the fair value of Bitcoin right now. According to analysts, it's currently $47 ,000, which is what? Virtually almost double the current price action. That's right, the Bitcoin price is trading in a frustratingly tight range between $25 ,500 and $26 ,500, leaving traders unsure of the next direction that the asset can take. Now we have Charles Edwards, founder of Capriole Investments. He believes Bitcoin's current price represents a low -risk term, long -term buying opportunity. Edwards' view is based on Bitcoin's production costs as well as energy value. Now Capriole Investments' energy value theory gives a fair value price of $47 ,200. And Edwards reiterated his bullish stance by saying the Bitcoin's production cost gives a floor price estimation of around $23 ,000 with a 100 % hit ratio. The trade has a risk -reward ratio of 1 to 5 with the potential for even higher price targets. But Edwards added it is based on the assumption that the rally price would stop at the fair value, which it has never done. Quoting Charles Edwards here, my favorite Bitcoin chart right now, the relative distance between the Bitcoin price, the historical price floor, and fair value. That's a 5 to 1 risk -reward, assuming no hype, and the price would stop at the fair value, which it never has. Now Edwards proposed Bitcoin's energy value theory back in December of 2019. According to the theory, the fair value of Bitcoin can be estimated by the amount of energy it takes to produce a Bitcoin. The model assumes that the more work that has been put into something, the more valuable it is.
A highlight from How & When We Do Evangelism
"Well, good afternoon. Thank you for being here. I was thinking this afternoon as I was looking at all the people that are here, how the Lord used obviously it was His Word, but 12 apostles, 12 apostles. There's 12. To flip the world. What a God we serve. I shared this verse with a prayer group on Wednesday. Romans 10 .1. Romans 10 .1. We'll read that verse to you and then we'll pray. Beginning in verse 1 and only verse 1, Romans 10. Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they may be saved. Let's pray. Oh God, let it be true by Your mighty hand that our desire, our heart's desire, our prayer, our prayer to You is that our family would be saved. That those within our church wall would be saved. Lord, let it be true that our heart's desire and our prayer to You would be that Manchester would be saved. That Tennessee would be saved. Lord, that America would be saved. Lord, we just openly confess, Lord, just repent in our hearts. God, that we have such a narrow, small view of You. God, You are mighty to save. I mean, God, forgive us, oh God, forgive us how we have tried to limit You, Lord, as if we could. Lord, forgive us if we've thought that great moves of You are impossible. Lord, oftentimes we pray for revival, Lord, and we pray for awakening, but Lord, perhaps if we were pressed on it, we would say we don't truly believe it. Oh, let it not be, Lord. Oh, we need You, God, oh, we need You. Lord, You have storehouses, treasuries in Heaven that we know nothing about. Great is Your faithfulness, Lord. Oh, would You pour out Your Spirit. Oh, Lord, would You bring great revival, great awakening, Lord, in our own hearts, Lord, in our own homes, in our own church houses, Lord, in our world, Lord, make Your glory known. Oh, give us a better understanding of who You are, Lord. Lord, You're faithful time and time again. Thank You for Your Word. Oh, strengthen me, Lord, strengthen us. We ask this in Christ's name. Amen. Well, I've been tasked with speaking on how and when we evangelize. I'm really honored and encouraged that Pastor John and this church have that desire to learn about evangelism, that they take evangelism seriously, and I know Bobby would include himself in this, but just as an evangelist, as a minister, we just want to avail ourselves to you if you have questions or if you need the encouragement, if you need resources, if you need tracts, if you want opportunities to serve alongside us, we just want to avail ourselves to you and afford that to you. I'm encouraged that John and Richard both drove down from Nashville, and that was a good drive. Richard shared with me he just needed the encouragement. There's not a lot of encouragement even in our churches. How sad, but how true, not always a lot of encouragement to evangelize. So Bobby prepared. I think he has a lot of lessons on this, and he shared with me one of his and kind of with the attitude, if my bullet fits your gun, then use it, and so he did a lot of the mining on this. I've definitely added some of my heart's desires to share with you. I trust it will be an encouragement to you. So how and when we evangelize. I'd say the greatest verse, at least for me, is, Bobby shared that with you earlier, Romans 1 .16, for I'm not ashamed of the gospel. When I think of that verse, drawn to the words of Christ, that those that are ashamed of Him, He'll be ashamed of us. That's heavy on us, does it not? Are we ashamed of Christ? Are we ashamed of God? Are you? Now you may give lip service and say no, but what does your actions say? Are you ashamed of God? Romans 1 .16, for I'm not ashamed of the gospel, for it's the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek quote that was shared with me. Moeller said this, at the end of the day, the biggest obstacle to evangelism is Christians who do not share the gospel. It's not churches that don't support it or antagonistic people on the streets or lack of knowledge, but the biggest obstacle of evangelism is Christians who don't share the gospel. So for professing Christians, you know, why are we not sharing the gospel? What's the reason? So what is evangelism? This is evangelism. Speaking to others the gospel of Jesus Christ. That's evangelism. Speaking the gospel, the good news of Christ Jesus. This should include that God is the holy creator of all things, that man is a sinner deserving of God's eternal wrath, that Jesus lived a perfect life and died a substitutionary death, substitutionary, we get our word substitute, right, in our place, in the place of those that believe, that he rose from the grave and grants eternal life to all who believe. And lastly, the only way to be reconciled to God and saved from his eternal wrath in hell is to repent, to turn from your sin and turn to Christ. And trust him alone. You're turning to him in faith. And so, you know, that's, sometimes that's a hot topic or sometimes that's misunderstood at repent and believe. But brothers and sisters, it's really the same coin. If we're going to turn to Christ, well obviously turning to him, we're turning away from something else. It's that change of mind. If we are now believing in Christ, we're looking to him, then we've changed our mind on the love of our sin. So how do we evangelize? How do we evangelize? So what do you think of when you think, I need to evangelize or I'm going to evangelize or I have the desire to evangelize? How would you evangelize? There's many ways. There's only one message, but there's many ways. So one heading would be personal evangelism, right? So we would take, we would witness, we would proclaim that gospel to those that we already have a relationship with and that personal evangelism. So think of someone like your worker, your neighbor, your friend, your family. It's personal. We know them on a personal level. It's one to one. It's usually in somewhat intimate setting, personal evangelism. So think of it this way. How much, how much must we hate someone not to share the gospel with them? So do we really believe that there's a hell to be shunned? Do we believe that? Do we believe that there's really a hell for all those who do not believe the gospel? Do we just say that or do we really believe it? And if we do believe that there is a hell to shun, that there's a hell to flee from, there's a wrathful God to flee from and come to him on his terms, then how much must we hate someone not to share the gospel with them? And I'll take it a step further, but ultimately by not proclaiming the gospel to someone, that message of reconciliation, in effect we're damning them. We're saying, you're not good enough for me to tell you how to be reconciled with God. We leave them helpless, we leave them hopeless. So we must ask ourselves that. You know, it's awkward. It's inconvenient. Bobby talked about sometimes that fear. Brothers and sisters, I think what it boils down to is that we fear man and we don't fear God. You know, we'll try to water things down like, well, fear in God means honoring him or reverencing him or being in awe of him or respecting him. It's true. It's all those things. But we're to fear him. We don't fear him like the worldly. We don't fear him like those that do not have an advocate with the Father. But we're to fear him. One of the great things of fearing God is if we fear him, we don't have to fear man. So how much must we hate someone not to share the gospel with them? So how we evangelize personal evangelism. Who's heard of friendship evangelism, right? Let's be buddies. Let's hit it off well. Let's build a rapport. Let's build a relationship with them. And then, you know, when I've gained their confidence, I've gained their trust, when they know that I truly care for them, well, then maybe I'll slip the gospel in. Is that how we're to evangelize? So at what point do you share the gospel? Is you've it had your friend -versary on 90 days in or two years in, or when do you transition from I'm only a friend to now I want to share the gospel with you? How about this? If they're your friends and you use the excuse, well, they don't want to hear about Christ, well, what's more important now, your friendship with them or telling them how to be reconciled with the holy God? I'm not saying that we don't share our one true hope with our friends. It's not that we don't build relationships or that we don't care for people, that we don't do life with people. We don't have to become someone's friend. We don't even have to be liked by them to tell them the truth and love. You know, I think it's a wonderful scheme of the devil, right, to delay. Well, I need to really get in and know them before I share the gospel. Or is it really, I don't really want to right now, so this is my excuse. I'll just keep building this relationship and maybe one day I'll build the confidence. Bobby spoke on that as well as you oftentimes hear maybe even on t -shirts, so share the gospel at all times and if necessary use words, foolishness. All the time use words. How else are they here? And then what about strangers on how we evangelize in personal evangelism? Is it okay to impose our views on them? Bobby gave a wonderful example, right? I'm a barber. I talk to people every day, all day. I talk to people till my brain hurts and I just want to be alone in a cabin for months. But I'm not called to do that, though, how badly I want to. But they will tell me everything. Stuff I don't even care to hear. Stuff I don't want to hear. It's because it just overflows, right? They want to talk about their sports car or their hobby or their wife or their kids. It's not all bad things, but it just overflows out of them. And they're going to tell you. They're going to tell you exactly what's on their mind. And so how many times have we heard professing Christians say, well, I don't want to impose my views on others. And we would impose our views if we saw someone fixing to get run over. We would snatch them. We'd help them. We'd grab them. We'd do what it took. I don't think we fully comprehend eternity and the holiness of God. And so, yes, we impose our views. The one true view, the only view. Brother, sister, you must be reconciled to God, for if you are not, you will meet Him in that final day. Jesus and the apostles, they preached primarily to strangers. We see that all throughout the gospels and the book of Acts. They didn't have to become their friends. They didn't even have to know their name to share the gospel with them. And we see specifically the example in John 4, the woman at the well. There was no friendship there. They met there at the well and the gospel was proclaimed. So that's personal evangelism. Secondly, and how we evangelize is oftentimes an open air. I've been with Bobby and been out with John. And I know some, even a guy or two here that's been willing to go with me. And I know Richard goes out on the streets as well. So open air preaching. And that's the public reading of scripture or the proclamation of the law or preaching of the gospel in an outdoor setting. This is Charles Spurgeon who said, Bobby shared this quote with me. I've read it before. I love it. This is what Spurgeon says. He says, no sort of defense is needed for preaching out of doors. But it would need a very potent argument to prove that a man had done his duty who has never preached beyond the walls of a meeting house. So just to explain that a little bit, if you didn't grasp it, saying there's no excuse, you don't have to have a reason to go preach on the street. But you'd have to have a really good argument to say why you always stand here and preach, but you've never went on the street. So we are called beyond the four walls. Love George Whitfield. So much history there. Read an abbreviated biography on him not too long ago. Just so convicting. He said, I believe I was never more acceptable to my master than when I was standing to teach those hearers in the open fields. You know, I think we have some type of romanticized thought that like a long time ago everyone loved God or a long time ago it was like more peaceful or like a long time ago it wasn't as wicked as it is now. Not true. There's nothing new under the sun. There's always been haters of God. And when you read some of the accounts of George Whitfield, you know, he had dead cats thrown on him, had blood thrown on him, had people stand beside him and just clang drums while he was preaching. We've had things thrown at us and I'm sure put on us and such, but when's the last time you had blood dumped on you or a dead animal put on you? That's not to say that we oftentimes don't go through difficulties or hard things. We do. But don't have that romanticized view that, well, a long time ago it was easier. Brothers and sisters, it was not any easier than it is today. And then a principle manner by which God spread his word throughout the scripture was through the open air. And we see that. Noah, a herald of righteousness. Solomon, Ezra, Jeremiah, Isaiah, Ezekiel, Jonah, think of all the prophets. John the Baptist coming and preaching his message of repentance. Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. Jesus, the disciples, Philip, Paul, Paulus, all them outdoor open air proclaimers of the good news of Jesus Christ. And preaching ultimately is a calling from God internally that should be confirmed by and a submission to one's local church. So by no means is this a lone wolf. Is this a, well, you know what I see oftentimes in some street ministers and those that are very evangelistic in their zeal is, well, everyone on the church is not on board. And so, you know, let's just ride off the church. I'm the only holy one. You know, it's just me. No one else wants to go. Maybe everyone's not called to go on the street. I think a lot are that don't. But maybe not everyone's called. Maybe that sister in the church that doesn't go on the street, she's called to just a ministry of prayer. And so we need to be plugged into the local church and be submitted to the local church. The Lord has oversight for us for a reason. So another way, as Bobby said, we, some guys, they're kind of more drawn to apologetics. And apologetics, again, is not the I'm making an apology, but it is a defense of a certain set of beliefs. But apologetics is not evangelism unless it includes the gospel message. And so this refutation of facts or, you know, this just debating for the sake of debating. Brothers and sisters, if it doesn't, if it's not grounded on Christ, the message of Christ is not heralded in it, it's not evangelism. Though it can bolster one's faith, though it can shut up often many that want to come with an argument, but many of those that you'll meet that want to have these arguments, they don't even really know what they're saying, most of them. They just, that's their defense, their defense of the gospel. They're trying to shut you down and turn you off and soothe their conscience. And so just a practical point of advice I can say when sharing the gospel with others is they're going to come at you with all kinds of angles of, well, can we trust the Bible? Or my cousin told me this, or I knew a professor that said this, or whatever it is. And that's fine, we can have those debates, we can bring apologetics into it. What we have to remember is we always have to circle back around to this question, is what are you going to do with your sins on Judgment Day? What are you going to do with your sins on Judgment Day? For the Christian, you'll stand closer than righteousness of Christ.

He's joining Fox's NFL kickoff, which is at 11 a .m. Eastern every Sunday little pregame action Julian Edelman Julian, how's it going? Going well, how are you doing? I'm doing well. I'm doing very well cuz football is here. So it was back Thank God is fully back. I Mean, I wish I wish the trends Kelsey wasn't hurt because I feel like that takes a little bit away from the opening game But it is what it is If you look at it though over the last However, many years the Kansas City Chiefs have been on this run. They've had relatively pretty decent help Throughout their whole thing. I mean they left they lost the left tackle in the Super Bowl That's why they lost against, you know, Brady they couldn't protect Patrick Mahomes but it's it's getting to that time in their Era it where gets hard, you know being a guy that's been on one of those teams a dynasty. They're not there quite yet but uh You know, they're well on their way if they could stay healthy and you would know better than anyone about dynasty So when would you say they're there? How many would they have to win before you say they're a dynasty everyone knows it's three Okay, I don't know what's going on. Everyone keeps on talking like oh This is you you into no, it doesn't matter if you get to the Super Bowl We went to eight straight AFC championships or something like that. Like you got to win three to get to be in Cowboys previous Patriots Niners Steelers It's not two. It's not two So tell me I want to get into your Fox gig and transitioning to meeting that since we're on it It's a good topic because I'm just curious because one of the things I'm looking at is someone who's scouting Over -unders to bet and and you know who's gonna win the AFC and stuff like that The I Motivation shouldn't say the motivation. I mean, I think the motivation is there even if you win But is it difficult or how difficult is it after winning two like they've won? It's very difficult To get geared up every Sunday, you know people don't realize How hard it is once you go out win a Super Bowl Okay, now they have two that when you win that first one you become a target everyone circles you on the schedule You win another one now everyone circling now now Divisions and conferences are designing their teams to beat you. So it gets harder and harder and as an individual player You know Your motivation you have to pull what what's motivating you because natural human instinct you're like You know, we got this we're good and then you know something happens you have injuries here an injury They're a player doesn't sign back because no two teams are the same. It's a new team every year. So it's very hard mentally To keep it going, you know And you have and they have a leader in Patrick Mahomes that can do that We had Tom Brady Tom Brady was always always on he was like he was always motivated So that gives you hope for the Kansas City Chiefs because they have such a great player and Patrick Mahomes who's their leader You know their best player is is their quarterback is their leader and the way he is is huge. Do you think? the intensity to beat the Chiefs to throne the Chiefs is Similar to what you guys experience and I ask you from this standpoint and I hope you don't take offense to this But I feel like I feel like the Chiefs are not hated in any way I'd feel like no one dislikes Mahomes No one dislikes Andy Reid you guys and I think it was mainly because of your success But there were people who didn't like Tom for whatever reason there was the ridiculousness with the flake eight the stupidest thing ever people didn't like Belichick, maybe You guys I don't think we're like Completely beloved whereas KC seems like I don't know who maybe people are sick of Travis Kelsey a little bit Like our teams you think is amped up to beat the Chiefs as they were you guys I Think the games changed the player has changed Just as an overall, I mean we look at games nowadays you got guys over here You know dapping up helping guys back back when we were playing the Jets when I first got in the league Bart Scott was mother -effing Billy O 'Brien on the sideline guys were fighting before, you know, it's just it's kind of changed And it could be for good or could be for bad. That's for weather for everyone else to determine But and also, you know, the Kansas City Chiefs that the Patriots were on it for 20 years Okay, like when I got there they already had three Super Bowls and they were on a little drought, you know But they were still winning, you know, they went 7 16 and oh they you know 14 win seasons they were still putting out big winning seasons for a long a longer time and You know the Chiefs just haven't been there I'm so I'm sure the Chiefs keep on doing well that people are gonna start hating them too, you know, yeah. Yeah The I want to get into some other stuff about the Patriots and and Belichick and Brady and but let's talk about you going to Fox you did inside the NFL. I enjoyed you on there I wrote that a couple times for SI. Now. You're gonna be on the Fox NFL kickoff show. It's remarkable I don't know if you've seen it Maybe you just know it off the top of your head because you friends with all these people but it is remarkable how every patriot is in media now is on TV, you know, you've got the McCordy's Gronk is part of the Fox family. Everyone knows about the Brady situation McGinnis the TV Bruschi It's like if you're on you were part of our Patriot team good love winners. Yeah people love winners Yeah, and they hate them so, you know you get a little bit of both They're either gonna love your hate you but they're gonna watch you It's like you had no choice but to go into TV basically after after all it's it's I don't know it's uh, You know when you play for an organization like New England and You've had the success that we had over the years that we played, you know It opens up a lot of doors and it's plain and simple. That's that's really what it is The the sacrifice and the efforts that we put into our career helped us after our career and a lot of guys you know, they have that hard work mentality that still want to stay in the game, but may not want to be coaches and And that's what media is, you know, that's what I feel. You know, I get my football fix by Going into a pre -production meeting and I haven't done it with Mike Vick or Charles Woodson or Chris and Thomas or Peter Shrager But you get your football locker room kind of vibe when you do those like when I was on inside the NFL I'm sitting there talking with Phil Simms Patrick, uh, you know, Brandon Marshall Michael Irving, Ray Lewis, James Brown and you have these These meetings where you just get to sit and talk football It's before you go on the lights are shining but you sit and you're talking stories You're breaking football down with people that play football So, I think that's a huge probably reason about it and you know, it's not you know We're used to putting in these crazy hours 14 -hour days Seven days a week don't get this year family and media, you know, like you got to do your homework You got to you got to watch all the games, but you know, we can still have a life outside of it, you know These guys are going coach. I mean people always ask me. Why aren't you in coaching and I go You know, I did my time Like I put my my 12 13 14 hour days in and when I would leave work I would see coaches families in the parking lot Seeing the coaches before they would go to bed because they still had another three hours. I ain't doing that Yeah, you know and then if you go somewhere else where it's not like that Then I'm mentally all messed up because well, there's some people that are doing it, you know So it's just I like I'm happy or I'm mad. I'm excited to go out and entertain and talk my knowledge When you were playing and you're playing days towards the end of your career Did you think you would get into TV or did you not think about it while you were playing? I Didn't necessarily think I'd become an analyst and do what I'm doing right now I always enjoyed creating content You know whether it was our YouTube videos our Instagram videos and all the content we build on J around je11 You know that was booming with with the Patriot nation that would always support, you know I always I found a niche in that and and I enjoyed that process of creating content going in and sitting in a you know in a editing room and and Filming up all this stuff and thinking it's gonna be terrible and then cutting it down and then you know having all your other team Because there's a team of people, you know That put put the work in to to get this good content out and I enjoyed it So I didn't know it was gonna be to the extent of what I'm doing right now but I knew you know, I was comfortable in front of a camera and you know, I know I faced for radio, but Thank God I won a lot of games Had it and just tell me were were there other networks like in the running to get your services Was it just Fox like I'd end up at Fox why Fox? Tell me a little bit about joining I want to say any other names there were, you know There was another network that was involved and I sat down and I thought Fox would be perfect You know, I got a couple teammates there with Gronk Brady You know, I'm really excited to get to hang out with you know Charles Woodson and in talk football with Mike Vick and Chris Thompson Peter Schrager and you know Fox is like a If you know the story behind Fox, I mean they were created as This little small sport network with John Madden.
Here's Our Beef With Dog Training Franchises...
"Here's my beef with, I think all of our beef with a dog training franchise. Most franchises, you go to the school to own a dog training franchise, learn how to run a business and become, learn how to dog train. And it's three weeks long. When we hire someone, it's five months of handholding, training, accountability, being monitored all the time just to be a dog trainer. We're not teaching them how to run a business. We're teaching them just how to work with a dog because in five months they're really just scratching the surface. They finally worked with enough dogs with enough different variances that they can start thinking on their own. That's with three weeks. Yeah. There's no complication. Those are the equivalent of the cookie cutter trained dog. They haven't done any kind of problems shooting, how to figure out what's wrong with the dog. That's my beef with dog training franchises is it's not a burger. You can't just put it on the grill for 60 seconds, flip it, cook it for 60 seconds and serve it up. Well, that's why I think about 90 % of them are e -collar trained. And that is why. So the next question is why do all these franchises use e -collars because they're not cooking a burger. They got to figure out how can we do this and teach somebody with no experience how to train a dog in three weeks and get it all done fast. We're going to make the dog do it and we're going to use an e -collar to do it. Yeah. That's why. That's why almost all, but not all, but I don't know what the statistic is, but the they have bark in their name and that's all I want to say, but they don't really go after and market towards and try to solve complex behavioral and emotional issues and they don't use an e -collar. Now they use a weird bean bag or something that's kind of bizarre, but at least they're complicated and emotional and behavioral issues with a dog. It ain't happening. That's not possible. Uh, Laura, you went to a dog training franchise school. We were almost, we were like, I'm holding my fingers up and they're very close together. I'm almost going to buy a franchise. Until I went to school. And I know one, uh, I know we're friends with, uh, owner of the franchise in within that franchise. And he told me before we were going to do it, he said, you're going to be probably angry when you leave about how little you actually learned about training dogs, especially for how much money you spent to buy the franchise and how long you were there, three weeks. But don't worry. The other franchise, these will help you if you have questions. Well, that's nice. But then why am I picking, why would someone pay 50 to $100 ,000 to a franchise that's not literally teaching you how to train a dog? Um, just, and you know, when you came back, you were like, well, I don't know. What was your experience at that school? Um, at that training, it was a joke. Um, I don't, I can say who it is, but even, even the training on how to run the business was a joke. I've never run a business. Charles usually does that. We've had different companies throughout our lifetime. I got nothing out of it. So I knew nothing about training a business. Basically, they say, we have this Google drive that the other owners are on. So that's where you get all your information out. I'm like, what the hell? Go look at other people's Google Docs and use their spreadsheets they're sharing with you and kind of figure it out. So that's how you run your business. And then the dog training was not non -existent.

A highlight from Col. Allen West (encore)
"Welcome to the Eric Mataxas Show. It's a nutritious smoothie of creamy, fresh yogurt, vanilla protein powder, and a mushy banana. For your mind, drink it all down. It's nummy. I want vanilla, I want, I want vanilla. Here comes Eric Mataxas. Here's Eric Mataxas. Hey, folks, welcome to the show, or to this part of the show. I have the privilege and joy of having as my guest in this hour someone many of you are familiar with, Lieutenant Colonel Allen West. He is, as you probably know, if you know anything about him, a Christian constitutional conservative. So am I. He is a combat veteran. I am not. He's a former member of the U .S. Congress. I'm also not a former member of the U .S. Congress. As you know, I am currently the senator from the great state of Wyoming. Actually, just kidding. Allen West, Colonel, welcome to the program. It's good to be back with you, Eric, and thanks for lowering your standards and allowing an old paratrooper to come on. An old paratrooper, yeah. I don't think anybody thinks of you that way, but thank you for being so humble. I gotta ask you, there's a lot to talk about, but you wrote an article, you write a weekly article for .com, townhall and the new one is called The Pitfalls of Identity Politics. Let's just start there. What is the gist of what you have to say there in the new article at townhall .com? Sure. Well, I think that when you start to listen to this whole thing about equity, what it means is that we're not going to be judging people based upon their character or evaluating them based upon merit. It's all about a certain color skin or demographic or thing of this nature, and I bring out the point with this current nominee to be the next chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, United States Air Force General Charles Q. Brown, who is basically Al Sharpton with four stars on his shoulder, and how he came out and said that he does not want to have any more than 46 % of white combat fighter pilots in the Air Force. And I'm thinking, what happened to just wanting to have good pilots in the Air Force, those that have the skill and have the ability to fly and to fight and to win? And then I further go into the instance of Kamala Harris, who without a doubt was selected because of identity politics, and now the Democrat party finds themselves in a very tough situation, Eric, because you have a core president in Joe Biden that really is faltering, he is failing, but without a doubt, they're afraid to replace him with Kamala Harris because her approval rating is even worse. So the pitfall of identity politics, when you don't look at people based upon their skill, their capability, their competency and merit, this is where you end up falling. Well, I mean, I think where we should start is to say that we understand that a good idea can go wrong, right? In other words, the idea that we want different kinds of people represented, whatever, like that's sort of a nice idea. But the question is, how far do you take it? What do you mean when you say different kinds of people? So it's one of these ideas that the reason it's appealing to so many is because it sounds good, right? You know, it sort of sounds like a nice idea. I mean, when Barack Obama was elected president before we all knew that he was a communist, you know, a lot of people thought, well, it's nice optics that America, which has struggled with racism, which struggled with slavery, that we now have somebody in the White House who is a black man, you know? And on the most surface -y level, those things matter. Optics matter. But obviously, something happens when the government gets involved and they start saying, we're going to mandate these kinds of quotas. And we know that the Supreme Court very recently overturned the affirmative action idea for colleges, something that, you know, you and I, we grew up with this, that this is like this basic thing. And you kind of think, is this ever going to, are we ever going to get past this? Well, we finally did because we have a Supreme Court that understood that, you know, this is not constitutional. But what we're talking about now, what you just talked about when you're talking about it, you know, is he the chairman of the joint chiefs or to become? Well, he is currently the chief of staff of the United States Air Force, and he's been nominated to be the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. So when someone like that takes this thing to the nth degree and says that we want X percentage of people who are blacks piloting, you think, you gotta be kidding me. Like you're kidding, you're talking about fighter pilots. Why would you degrade the military by saying this is the metric? Why would you do that? What does it say about what kind of a leader you are in the military? How did someone like that, who you describe as, you know, Al Sharpton with four stars, how can somebody like that have risen to get four stars? That doesn't speak well of the military, obviously.

"There are a lot of breaking stories I i will tell you that One of my main sources. And it's an excellent one is the gateway pundit. I look at it every day. The half brothers over there doing a great job. i also check out. Steve bannon's warren pandemic. he's doing a for tremendous job really really good show. And it's still up on apple you can still get his podcast. You can get this podcast by the way i mean. If you want to get a little plug there but charles moskowitz live so anyway They'll see conservative. Talk radio host. Larry elder he is entered the race for governor of california good guy. I've interviewed him in the past very bright really on the right side of things certainly deserving of support Now it says here and this is just one little other issue wanted to get into today. It says this is from gateway pundit capital police for us military surveillance equipment on citizens to identify emerging threats. Right now this is part of this business of you know alleged threats from quote unquote insurrectionists unquote now the woods trump supporters. They're not going after an teeth. The not going after them. They're not going. After you know people that that they would tend to agree with you only going after us. And now the capitol. Police have set up offices according to the gateway pundit in florida and texas which is to say that and this is allegedly to protect congressman while the back in the district's which of course is something that can be done by the state police local police authorities Assuming they need it. This is a nationalizing of policing and that should be troubling to. Every one is an issue that used to be troubling to the left when they used to talk about the the the weaponising in the federalizing of the fbi and other state agencies. Barack obama talked about this in a speech. He delivered in august twenty sixteen when he was running for president. I mean twenty. Eight two thousand and eight. When he was running for president he called for a national police force. That would help local police but also that would have national police powers and it was rejected by everyone left and right democrat and republican. It was very unpopular and it sort of disappeared. Well now it's been resurrected under the guise of stopping quote the insurrectionists unquote. If you get my drift. I think we know who's talking above there. I don't have a peep about this. From the left. The mainstream media is not covering it..

"Is to that as a motorola georgia is what is the reason. Why why. why did he make that decision now. We can debate on a decision itself. What motivated to make that decision other than going into the season of the pink You know something. We can speculate. I have no idea what we do know is that his office received six million dollars from a group that was financed by Mark zuckerberg and his wife personally and that when he was asked about this and he denied it at first eventually said well. We use that money for public relations. We don't know why though we really don't know what the motivation is. What do you think it is in. Politics is very addicting range from all kinds of things because I like i would like to say that. As our representatives are looking out while best interest but they do have interests that outweighs the answer the people even on the conservative of course and but we need to citizens understand what those are. i mean. that's the reason why we have elections and you can. We can set a shake it out a little bit and find out. What are the motivations. I mean i don't trust any of them liberal conservative democrat or republican. I mean this is you know there. Are you know agendas. There are motivations that are not necessarily public think that certain population privy to certain Action that the party is on. They will lean more towards their More towards their interest. You know. And i think that chip in people in the dark which if the nation it hinders people's from growing in wealth of knowledge of materialistic thing. You know so. We have to open the door. No matter how ugly The the door might be no matter. How gruesome maybe look back. I couldn't agree with you more. And that's a that's why we have a free press in this country. And that's why i mean while you say this i'm feeling like oh i wonder if i'm going to get censored on youtube but whatever we this is why we need to have people given the opportunity to air ideas and then debate them and if they're wrong it'll it'll prove it'll be proven as such anyway. Listen thanks so much for the call. Call again.

"We know that for a fact in for example the case in wrigley lucas. Everybody knows he had the accomplice of otis tool in the case of leonard lake. We know he had the accomplice. Charles ing and then gay. She had said for a long long time that he had accomplices. He couldn't bury all those people there had to be. There was other people involved and in fact that's now come to live with. We know for a fact that he did have an accomplice named paschi and paschi directly. Worked with a guy named john. Norman who was the biggest p. r. o. n. producer of young boys in the seventy s. And so he had distributed this vast network and his right hand man was paschi and that gates had said that for a long time and then wgn in chicago just a whole report on this a pretty recently the local news. Yes we have determined that he in fact he did have accomplices. The clown and candyman podcasts has come out that's pretty popular has covered this and this is relevant because it doesn't disconnect gase to to John david norman. But it connects them both to the north fox island case which was a epstein style operation. That was being run on island. Up there in michigan in the seventies that connects high level people at gm There was a gm executive who was in part of a satanic cult. That was a visiting this. This these types of meet ups you could. I don't but basically we're just learning that It's a bigger network of this stuff. It's a lot more widespread than we thought. And that it it's the model of epstein style compromise operation which i think we've seen with If i think salvo was connected this kind of stuff it turns out. Savable was buddies with three zero killers. Myra henley bradley. And the peterson yorkshire ripper. One of the bodies was found in yard over. It's turning out. This album was in a particularly nasty character And in the model again is the same of of a compromise operation. We've seen that frank in the franklin cover up we see it in With with it there was a i. Five had a a compromised house That they were filming all of the the the underage prostitution with with the mp's and the and the you know high level elites that was a big thing going on in the uk that was connected to the savable circles. Ed he searle smith all these Satanic mp's in the british government being involved in this kind of stuff so long story short is what we actually see in the in the in the case of the serial killers I've got a list of twenty two right now that show that the the many of these locals are actually connected to satanic groups The.

They're doing this to help humanity. you know. this is the sort of mainstream sort of Nor me idea that people believe all will darpa is going to develop this Chip so that. I can get internet stuck in my head so that i can like know every answered every question is not for you right so Anything that is in other words. I'm saying anything. That's a positive. Development is not for the masses. Anything that is a tracking tracing control experiment type of thing that is for the masses so if there is a positive development is not typically you know made available unless you're you know you got millions of dollars billions of dollars something like that. It's it's it's unfortunately being used for for slavery and again. So i wasn't trying to. I wanted to be clear that i know the first. And second maccabees is about the the revolt against the greeks and in its alexander's. It's it's antioch fanis who's a descendant of alexander who then comes in and he defiles the temple but there's another story that is third. Which is the egyptian. Ruler told me and told him he tries to do the same thing he tries to the only reason i mentioned all that was just that when he comes in. He tries to forbid the temple. He's forbidden from walking out of the temple. He tries to forbid people from worshiping and then he he wants to enact tattooed. That's just what i thought was so crazy as i'd never even and i know it's not a typically a canonical book but it's a it's just an interesting story that you've got these rulers who want to bypass laws. They wanna make laws. They wanna say that they are law their god essentially what they're doing the ruler saying he's got many offers a false salvation that he's the same he's and you see niro. Does the exact same thing. He says basically. He's the savior are now. I think that for some reason judaism did not codified that book but catholicism dead. I'm not sure why but Either way it's an important. There's the old joke that The jews solberg hanukkah but they don't have have maccabi shannon and then the orthodox celebrate don't celebrate hanukkah but they have neck and you know who knows why those decisions made but i think that the china what we call the tanakh was pretty much canonized in In persian times.

"Substance you could say over time. It can turn into anything because from that perspective. Nothing has a major calling something a nature or having a nature dog nature cat nature human nature whatever divine nature. All of those things are just human social strokes. They're just terms that we make up to describe matter in motion and if everything is fundamentally matter and motion than man is just. A bunch of bag of molecules is no different than the mailbox right. He's just a different configuration of the molecules. So that being the case there's nothing wrong. Mutating man or mutating nature because there is no nate nature are just social constructs and literally when you have debates with atheists when you talk. They'll all say this. There's no such thing as things have nature's that's that's an ancient medieval idea and in a way meaning the baden. Its positive of that was not taught call mocks. The way was very much admire. Darwin who wants a dedicated dot com and donald refused. Because he said. I'm not economists. He transposed the biological theory to social theory. And basically he said everything is manufactured religions manufactured and it's all part of the central conspiracy theory of the left which renames that somehow the haves people that are in power have created these realities of way exploited people who have not and that everything essentially destroyed it. Away is very nihilistic view that everything is nothing really actually when exist everything has manufactured and is created by energies that are seeking power and that there is no objective existence. there's certainly no god. it was no creation. everything is perpetual. there was no moment by which god created the universe. Universals always here always will be here and say Yeah i think there are some elements of that of definitely elements that in the new age movement but is also a bit of that in the eastern religions Everything is there is no moment of beginning everything was actual and that in that paradigm. There is no objective moral and ethical code. Everything is wherever you say. It is always fan all walks. And when you have that and you no longer believe in anything that substantial you're vulnerable to the siren song of these elites then step into that void and say we have the answer. We are letting you know. That's where you get the hero worship as we get hit book you know we have come in wigoeno because there is no such thing as truths. We're going to define truths because we you know a smarter than you basically. Yeah look at these big buildings. We build right say i built a giant pyramid.

"I think that has been the underlying philosophy of the trans humanist movement of which jeffrey epstein was a major part here in boston the head professor at the media center to resign because associations with epstein and before his resignation on their website. He had all kinds of stuff about the what exactly. I'm talking about very openly. I mean trans. Humanism is the new future of nan. And it's going chew love disease nothing wrong with curing disease. But the point is they were trying to use it. In a way to do something that would have evolved manned would marginalized populations that was seen as less evolved which has always been the darker side of this whole agenda and our by the way on it used the term survival of the fittest in one of the later editions of his book and he was inspired by herbert spencer. Who was the ambassador of darwinism but I know you've done some talking to that. What we are we with the trans humanist movement right now I was looking into I went back. And i read Ghost in the machine. Not the whole book. That i read it many years ago and i read the chapters that are relevant to trans humanism at the end of ghosts in the machine kessler wrote And he projected that by the time that we're living right now we would be seeing precisely what we're saying and he admits fact that the government will have to do these secret programs because of course you know the public's too stupid they can't they can't understand this stuff so the the government will have to secretly put drugs in the water in the food even to the extent that he says the culture will have to be degenerated.

"I remember One of the is either alice bailey. Boulevard has a book about how it would be another on unveiling event. They wouldn't have to hide the the attitude they have of the of the terek so thank. We've entered into that a on where they think it can all be in the open. That's actually Now that Traditional religions have been weakened It can now be open to the darker side and so they actually do. Speak that way I think there is something to that. I was reading about michael aquino. I think he's a key figure to understand in this regard because If people don't know he eventually became the army's head of psychological warfare and he wrote a few books actually when read his books a couple years ago One of them was the document about mind. Ward deci war which is how the army would adopt a new approach to psychological warfare in even sites in that essay it's the doctrine the army's doctrine of socks and and he says in their the principles that you find in black magic and the satanic could be very relevant to targeting people or populations the enemy and and psychological operations. And what what. I think is interesting. Is that when you read that. S say he's actually not talking about some foreign enemies. He's talking about all of the domestic population humans anybody. That's not kind of in that Upper so-called elite or social darwinian more evolved a structure and. that's of course why he found I think so. Many of the pagan philosophies the even the nazi philosophies relevant to his worldview And then what he did was he sort of co opted a bunch of those and then he created his own group after he sort of moved out of the anton. Levay kind of more pop. Satan has created a more serious satanic sect. Called temple upset and i noticed too many many years ago i read on never be able to find where it was but he had recruited different military. I don't know how high the the military brass was but he had recruited several military people into his cult and then Was of course under investigation. At the presidio for child abuse and all this kind of stuff but he had gotten people into the club of rome There was one of the members of the club of rome. of course. that's what marie strong and all these other characters who believe that. The earth be radically depopulated. Most people need to be killed. All this kind of stuff and in fact He he so he even had somebody. Add that highest level of of the club of rome in terms of making you know global policy decisions about the environment and and killing most people and all that so in other words even at that level that where people that believe. It's a it's a kind of a satanic sacrifice. So what i think. We're seeing as the usage on many different levels of the dark arts dart sorcery etc four the power structure and then in the power structure..

That's in various films. But it's it's sort of thing that's kept a little bit under the hood so to speak. I mean most people when they see that they either think. Oh this is trendy or it's cute. They don't really think that it's too much in your face. Even though when you look at it and you come to understand it you see that it is but i think that now this year especially maybe the pandemic we reset whatever it is. It's no longer all that hidden.

They years the signature on file that we have to let that go through. Who gets inside that. That's a good question. I mean i would assume a a local corrupt clerk and by the way that raises a bigger question too and that is that on absentee ballots. And i don't know the answer to this. I think it probably varies by the state but on absentee ballots and not even talking about these massive papering of the house under the guise of the covid emergency with unsolicited dallas with sat down including massachusetts. Exactly how is it that these votes are confirmed once they received who counts them. How they counted is their accountability with regard to the counting of those votes. I don't know the answer to that navy. Somebody right now knows anyway. A local state judge that this was challenged by the state legislature and finally three months after the election. A local state judges stepped in and said that that's not constitutional everyone's against the state constitution. It actually against the federal constitution because only the state legislative has the authority to make such law. What to end a long or to change your law and so she's been defeated now. She's being called to testify before the state house in michigan and she's refusing. I go there. I'm not going because the people that run. The state legislatures are all about your terrorists and insurrectionists and right-wingers and conspiracy theorist so. I'm not going right. That's the kind of arrogance dealing.

"Probably white city by the way from atlanta very successful normally laxity all under the guise that they bought into this idea. That georgia was somehow doing something that had something against black people and this is really troubling question that actually was brought up by jeb kunar at w. r. k. o. I think it's worth my repeating. I mentioned this On wednesday on the program and and that is that the big tech. You know. Google facebook twitter. All these guys youtube. Everyone of them are developing social scoring businesses. And now get two people to if this is true. George gilder who is one of america's most respected Intellectuals and who spent several years in china i think on a mission as part of during the bush administration voted book recently and i heard him interviewed about this we. He said that china is involved with establishing social scores of their citizens. Another words if you have a social score and they keep track of its and smartphones and this spying on people basically like they always did but now they do it using high tech and if your social score is not sufficient in your denied rights. I mean. you can't go out to certain places. You can't even get food in certain situations you can't you don't know your freedoms are further restricted whereas if you're social score is high then you are on the inside and you get extra privileges and George gilder in this interview said that this is going to happen in the united states because google and all these companies who want to do business in china and who make compromises to do so eventually going to implement this system in the united states and i meet at the time i was like. Oh oh my god that never could happen here. And i heard this interview several years ago. This is horrifying how this happened in america. Well according to jeff crooner. I think he's a pretty good source. This is what this is about with regards to big businesses in this country like coca cola and delta. They are responding to a social scoring. That has three parts e. s. n. g..

"That number again is six one seven three nine six four five eight now as i predicted and as many people predicted big fight this year and i would suggest the bite that will determine. The future of our republic and of our ability to govern ourselves is going to be voter reform now. I wanna be careful about how. I talk about this. Because i am on youtube and i know that this issue is a little sensitive for some of the youtube sensors. So you know. I mean it's it's kind of in this day and age in the situation that we're in we have to weigh and measure those factors what we can talk about what we can't talk about. And you know we all go forward and life generally and certainly anyone who does any broadcasting goes forward with a certain degree of self censorship. I certainly have always exercised those sorts of restraints but in this heightened atmosphere where you have national censorship on a more formalized level. It's become much more. Difficulty goes beyond the simple means of preserving community standards. Which i believe. I do and he gets into political speech so having said that i am going to proceed here and i'm going to proceed with some caution. Let's put it that way. I'm not totally free to talk. But up so getting back to the subject that i wanna discuss. We are indeed facing a huge battle. Both the hood sort of speak in a way outside of the view of the media and in public with regard to attempts by the american public. And when i saved the american public i'm talking. Not just you know the us deplorables the seventy five million people who we know voted for donald trump. And that's when we know voted for trump. i'm talking you know independence. Well-meaning democrats disaffected democrats even some liberals are concerned about the transfer of voter regulation away from its rightful place where it is to reside constitutionally and that is with the state legislators and the people who's elected state legislators and onto unelected people or unauthorized people in the case of the twenty twenty election that included secretaries of states governors judges but now with a new bill. Before congress put forth by the radical left it will nationalize Election control and This is a battle royale. Because it's shaping up in many states. I think is going to be a growing number of states. I would hope all fifty states are involved in this. I would hope my own state of massachusetts gets involved even though there was no hard evidence in this state or accusations of voter irregularities in the last election nevertheless there were unilateral measures taken by the governor to paper the house so to speak under the guise of the cobra divergency. He authorized the simple mailing out blindly. Ah ballots without dawson had gotten requested. That is look at again. This is not an issue of whether or not. That's a legal matter. it is legal..
