A highlight from Katy Faust (Encore)
"Folks, welcome to the Eric Mataxas show, sponsored by Legacy Precious Metals. There's never been a better time to invest in precious metals. Visit legacy PM investments dot com. That's legacy PM investments dot com. Hey, you have you checked your bucket list lately? Are you ready to take care of item number seven? Listening to the Eric Mataxas show? Well, welcome. Tune in and then move on to item number eight. Skydiving with Chuck Schumer and AOC here now is Mr. Completed my bucket list at age 12. Eric Mataxas. Hey there, folks. Welcome. I'm excited to have back as my guest, Katie Faust. Faust, Katie Faust. New book called Raising Conservative Kids in a Woke City. Katie, welcome back. So good to be with you. You've got a nice little feature in my storyline of authoring. I didn't write my first book until you were like, Katie, you need to write a book. And I was like, I don't have time. And you're like, well, then your little global children's rights movement is going nowhere. And I was like, well, then I guess I write a book. So credit to you for getting Stacey and I into the official publishing world because we wouldn't have done it without your coercive prompting. Wow. That's terrific. Now, the problem is biblically, you have to tithe unto me after the order of Melchizedek. That's biblical since I was the one behind this. But but we'll talk about it. And you are without genealogy and eternal. Is that how this is working? Well, this is Salem radio. So I guess it all makes sense now. Oh, my God. Oh, that is creepy. The priest of Salem, Melchizedek. All right. I love the fact that tons of people are saying, what what what are you talking about? Read your Bibles, people. All right. I don't have time. So Katie Faust, you are your organization is called Them Before Us. Talk about that a little bit before we get into the new book. Yeah, well, I am really passionate about two things. One is when it comes to the changes in culture, law and technology that are taking place in our world today, I'm very passionate about. Don't touch the kids. Leave the kids alone when it comes to changes in marriage, family, parenthood, reproduction. Right now, the world is looking at kids and they're like, those are accessories that I can cut and paste into any and every adult relationship. So the first book is about no children have a right to be known and loved by their mother and father. All adults need to conform to those rights. So whatever is going on in your personal life, leave the kids alone. But I'm also very passionate about something else. And that is leave my kids alone. Don't touch my kids. But that's very challenging because this culture is insane and it's absolutely after our kids. They are hell bent in destroying children's life, family, mind and body. And they do that highly and very effectively through indoctrination, whether that comes through the schools, whether it comes through social media, whether it comes through mainstream media, their friend group, sometimes infiltrating their churches. And so my co -author Stacey and I have written a book about how we have been able to raise collectively our seven kids between our two families in one of the most hostile progressive cities in the world, Seattle, and largely sending them to public schools. And you can't you can't capture our kids like we have been able to locate our world view in our kids to the point where they can spot the line. They can stand against the crowd and they can push back. Right. And look, there are a few things that need to be said. First of all, the fact that we are now at a point where the left broadly defined is coming after our kids. This is when you move from like mere leftism or from liberalism or whatever we called it in the past into full blown Marxism, cultural Marxism, where they say and they believe the family is the enemy of the state. They want to crush families. They want to divide children from their parents. They want to divide husbands from wives. They want to destroy the family because the family, like God, like people of faith, is their enemy. And so this is something that we need to recognize. It's a new iteration in the long march to the institutions. They have now gotten to a point where they're open about wanting to steal our children, steal our children's minds. And you're quite right that the buck stops here, that that's not going to happen. We will die as parents before we let you do that. And we will die happily to protect our children from these vile ideas. So your book, the new book is Raising Conservative Kids in a Woke City. Now, I want to say there are other options, folks. You don't need to live in a woke city, perhaps. You don't need to send your kids to public school. You can homeschool your kids. I would say the first thing to anybody would be homeschool your kids. You know, go to Sam Sorbo, ask her how to do it. Everybody who says I'm not qualified to do it is totally qualified to do it. But what you're saying, Katie, is that even if you can't do that, even if you can't send your kids to a genuinely faith based traditional school, there is hope. Well, and the deal is like the work is coming for your kids, even if you're homeschooling them, even if they're in a great private school, it is seeping into their world. I mean, I've got friends at great conservative Christian schools where the woke is infiltrating them as well, where kids are talking about being pansexual, you know, and it's a private Christian school. And I'm surrounded by homeschool kids who are awesome and I love them. I'm currently running the youth ministry at our church. And there's a lot of homeschooled kids. These kids are great. They're also battling these woke ideas. It is also infiltrating their world. So like you cannot bubble wrap your kids. And honestly, you should not try to bubble wrap your kids. There is an appropriate way to shelter your kids early on and then strategically expose them to these ideas. You, the parent, introduce them. You don't let the world introduce it to them. You introduce this in age appropriate ways, in developmentally appropriate stages. And that's what we do in the book is we kind of lay out sort of the stages of learning for kids, what you need to be covering in each of these different phases, how to strategically make sure that you are getting to your kids first, rather than letting the world introduce these concepts to your kids and thereby establishing yourself as the expert. And parents need to be doing this regardless of your zip code, regardless of how your kids are being schooled. Right. You we all need to inoculate our kids against the woke virus. And if we can do it in Seattle with our kids going to public school, you can do it, too. Well, that's amazing. And listen, what you're saying is, is that, you know, when you say you can't bubble wrap your kids, the point is you want to let them understand why the ideas on the left are bad. Not just say that they're bad, but actually make them understand. No, no, no, no. They're actually bad. They're actually harmful. They're stupid. They're illogical. They're irrational. They're anti -human. They're inhuman. They are failed and failing and will fail. Our kids need to get that. So it's not just my parents believe that. And they told me I have to believe that. No, no, no. It's actually true. It's like teaching your kid math. You know, then they can do it on their own. They don't they don't need you once they learn how to do it. So that's an important point to make. So the book is brand new folks raising conservative kids in a in a woke city. And I'd forgotten, Katie, that you lived in Seattle. Of course, I live in New York. And it needs to be said, you said it, but it needs to be said again and again that a lot of these places that we trusted, a Christian schools, Christian institutions, churches have themselves about the need to bail or are perfectly willing to go along with bowing the need to bail. A lot of the institutions that we once took for granted as on the good side have gone to the dark side. Christianity Today, the magazine completely gone over to the dark side. Campus Crusade, now called Crew, has opened the door to tons of bad ideas. The Gospel Coalition, which was once OK, has opened the door to tremendously pernicious ideas. And so it really does fall to us, the parents, to take this seriously and to understand it is our job. We can no longer entrust our kids to these to these places we once thought were safe. Well, and, you know, we talk about in the conclusion like sometimes it feels like, what can I do? I don't have a huge platform. I'm not in political office. You know, I don't I'm not an author at any of these outlets. You actually have the most position as a parent. Do you understand the power of raising the next generation to embrace conservative ideas? And by that, we define conservatism as you're just recognizing historical, economic and biological reality. That is what conservatism is today. But on team reality, folks, it's called reality. We believe in reality. That's right. It's no longer just return to the gold standard, you know, kind of people or or, you know. Hawks on foreign policy, it's like if you recognize that men and women are different, if you recognize that the free market is the best way to conduct ourselves in the economy, if you recognize that life begins at conception, if you recognize that, you know, we are defined by the content of our character, not the color of our skin. I mean, like if you recognize those things, you're a conservative. Welcome to the welcome. Welcome to the red pill, baby. And it's amazing. It's amazing. We have to go to a break.

"Raising Conservative Kids in a Woke City" With Katy Faust
"Talking to Katie Faust, the head of thembeforeus .com, them being kids, us being non -kids, thembeforeus .com. So, Katie, the new book is Raising Conservative Kids in a Woke City. And what I was just saying to you off the air is that I believe, you know, when people say, hey, what's the answer? There is no answer in the sense that everyone has to be realistic about what they are able to do. Some people, you know, can move to rural Iowa, where the whole culture is helping them inculcate reality -based values, biblical values, conservative values. Some people can send their kids to wonderful Christian schools. Other people send their kids to Christian schools, which are frankly awful. A lot of the Christian colleges have bought into a lot of these woke ideas. So, each of us has to figure it out for himself. But you are saying, in fact, it is possible, at least for you and a few others, to have raised your kids with conservative values, traditional values, biblical values, in a genuinely woke city like Seattle. And that, to me, is delightful to hear. Well, it is. And it's actually kind of what Christians and parents are supposed to be doing all the time. I really do think, you know, what we've had for decades is we've had conservative parents who have had more kids than liberal parents have, right? And yet, somehow, all of those kids end up becoming liberal, or a lot of them do. And it's because we have not taken seriously the mandate to be the primary educators of our kids. And, you know, my co -author Stacy, you know, people will say, why don't you homeschool? And she's like, I do. Oh, I do. I outsource some of it to the public schools, but my husband and I take very seriously that it is our job to educate our kids, and our kids know it. And so, like, this is actually something that I really think is going to turn the tide. Why is it that parents and parental rights are so under attack right now? It is because it is the greatest threat to the woke machine. Parents are the greatest threat. If we are influencing our kids, if we are the ones that are instilling our values in them, the woke are not having children. They're having, you know, my woke friends, my liberal friends, are having zero to two kids. My conservative friends are having two to twelve kids. If we can actually raise our kids and instill our values in them, do you understand how different this country is going to look in a couple of decades? I mean, it's going to be a radical turnaround, but we have to be very serious about instilling our values. And it's not impossible. It is hard. And honestly, I think that one of the reasons why our kids have been given over to the culture is because we've thought, I don't have to do much. Cruise control, feed them, love them, which is all important. But it is a time for very purposeful training. Very purposeful training. You can do this.

A highlight from OUTCAST by Gloria Giorno
"Seek and Destroy that has been the theme of discussions of truth now for well I'm in my seventh season here and we started the show on Wynwood radio in Miami 2016 is when I agreed to do the show with them aired the first episode January of 2017 this is Ian Trottier here and today we are going to start talking if you are not familiar with the name Charlotte Iserbit she passed away about a year and a half ago she's a former advisor to the Department of Education under Ronald Reagan her story is very interesting and captivating because she talks about having received a list of these Skull and Bones members via mail that was sent to her father who was a Skull and Bones member at Yale and Anthony Sutton was hot on that trail so two names that you should familiarize yourself with and that is Charlotte Charlotte's work and that is the deliberate dumbing down of America she talks about the invasion of the American education system and that having been formalized under Jimmy Carter back in 1979 Department of Education so she talks about that through her book and then also what I was talking about was Anthony Sutton calling her being hot basically on the trail of dissecting the corruption that is it's really manipulation because Ella Hugh Yale was a major stockholder a main president of the British East Indies trading company that is a Rothschild controlled trading company and the Rothschild funded the American Revolution so I may be off here ladies and gentlemen but if you look at the flag that was flown above the John Paul Jones excuse me the USS Alfred commandeered by John Paul Jones on the Delaware that basically started the American Revolution that flag is basically identical to the British East Indies company flag and then that you trace that and you go back to Cambridge Massachusetts and something called the flag committee which is Continental Congress approved Washington Franklin adopted what became the first flag of the United what became known as the United States and that was the US Grand Union flag which as being designed by Betsy Ross that is the US Grand Union flag which is identical to the British East Indies company flag because that is where the financing came to fund Washington's army and then you ask well wait a second that's English and well yeah this it is English but it's not English because London the city of London is not technically part of England it is its own banking it's sovereign nation a Roman banking colony still in existence these are all facts and you can cross -check them but anyway so seek and destroy corruption that is how I that is that is how I theme my discussions my conversations my talks it's what I do in Trottier with discussions truth today we're gonna talk about the Department of Education rather the state of the education system in the United States so quickly before we bring the guests on we'll be we'll be talking to Gloria Giorno and her son Stevie and getting their view as conservatives what it's been like for Stevie to go through I think it's Belmont University as a conservative so without further ado thanks for tuning in for the podcast on and we're bringing on Gloria and Stevie right now calling Laurie and Stevie this is Ian Trottier for Discussions of Truth Gloria hi nice to meet meet you and welcome to Discussions of Truth I've looked at some of the work that you're you've excellent hi Stevie so thanks for for joining the the the show and please give listeners an introduction to who you are Gloria you can start tell listeners who you are what you what you do and then and then Stevie you can do the same please I try to destroy a young conservative and I also did a nonprofit the name of it is United Women Foundation what we do is mentor employ aid and young conservative women who are in Stevie's situation and we also give out scholarships to conservatives who are not in need of a scholarship but who are conservatives and who are promoting the conservative agenda in their lives thank you Gloria and that's United Women Foundation calm I'll go ahead and put a link to that in the episode Stevie go ahead and introduce yourself for us please well thank you very much for having us on my name is Stevie Giorno and I serve as the chairman of the Tennessee Young Republicans and I am the former student body president at Belmont University where I was attacked by the radical left for being proud of my country and being proud to be an American on the 4th of July in 2020 during the as a mother for protecting your your family and your country I've looked at the website I've looked a little bit about both of you and what's interesting is you have been you've come my way and your stories come my way through a contact there in Florida and your Stevie your story is daughter went through something very similar and in her university classes but Stevie go ahead and tell us a little bit about about what you experienced you were the student body president at Belmont University yet you were attacked for your political views isn't that right picture of myself in front of the White House and I captioned it that I was proud to be an American and I thanked those who had sacrificed and served so that we may have the freedoms and liberties that our forefathers intended for us and within 24 hours my fraternity was blackmailing me threatening to label me a racist and remove me from the fraternity there were hundreds of comments on my Instagram post and there were hundreds of signatures on a change .org petition that sought to remove me as the duly elected student body president even though I was elected unanimously with almost 99 98 % of the vote and so it was really bad that students friends of mine my fraternity brothers wanted to attack me because I was proud to be from this country you know my grandparents escaped from communism in Yugoslavia and my mother lived there for a year so I've heard the first -hand horrors of what happens in a communist country and I fear that our country is headed that way every single day. Now what's interesting is one of the articles that I that I went through briefly was is written by Campus Reform it's published on an online newsletter called Campus Reform and one of the stories that they have today actually talks about glorifying Che you Guevara know this is a this is a socialist figure that that helped with the with the cubist Cuban communist revolution and Fidel Castro you're you're talking about your family having come from communist Yugoslavia are you seeing are you seeing Stevie in in in in your experience on on campus now I don't know what you're doing now maybe you graduated you can bring us up to date with where you at right now but are you seeing some of these same the same signs that that perhaps your mother or your grandparents were talking about that were that were red flags for for communism growing within the country are you seeing that experiencing that I do and I think unfortunately it is getting worse specifically at Belmont University they refused the school is refusing to allow a turning point USA chapter on campus I think it it's it's it's awful it's an infringement on our First Amendment right to freedom of speech and freedom of belief to protest to assemble and so it's really unfortunate what's going on with with colleges and universities I graduated in the spring of 2021 but I have heard of the horror stories happening at private Christian schools so -called Christian schools happening across the country and until students and parents and grandparents begin to see what is happening you know the first step to solving a problem is acknowledging it exists and it's there and it's not going to get better until enough conservative students and parents realize that they need to stop funding the indoctrination machines of universities and change course well it's very brave of you to say that glory I want want to get your your view and and and I want to first first say this I opened this show up before I brought you on with talking about somebody named Charlotte Iserbyt and I'm happy to send you her link to her book it's called the deliberate dumbing down of America what she did was she started dissecting what was happening under the Reagan administration with the attack on the indoctrination that we're seeing fruits of today a few decades later but Gloria did you did you ever expect or suspect that something like this might happen to your son I I he gets into college were there any anything anything happening up to that time where he's now the student body president of Belmont University anything before that that you were that you questioned well you know hey they he might he might need to defend himself or was this a complete surprise to you it was a complete surprise there was absolutely nothing the handbook the literature the online documentation about Belmont University everything fit a conservative Christian agenda there was nothing I mean personally I think it's a bait and switch but there was absolutely nothing I was friends with some of the professors who are conservatives at Belmont or who were conservatives at Belmont and we had spoken for two years before Stevie made the decision to go there and no there was not any kind of indication that anything like this would happen now we would never allowed our son to want to go to a school where he would have been threatened for his beliefs I mean he had been working for Republican candidates since he was 17 years old so it was out in the open it's on his LinkedIn it's public so no I mean we we were told on every tour we were told at every meeting that this was a fully free campus there would be no harassment it was Christian it was conservative and I read the handbook and Stevie followed all the guidelines when these things did start to occur he did follow all the guidelines he followed all the rules he turned everything into administration and they did nothing absolutely nothing and Stevie yeah go ahead to this day they have not responded in any way shape or form nothing and this has been three years now so you have not gotten a formal response from the school administration Stevie you're simply in DC taking a photograph outside the White House expressing your gratitude for the country and the values that it stands for did you ever suspect this type of backlash coming from the because he knew that if he spoke out against them that they would send him to a camp where he'd never be heard from again and really that whole year of 2020 was either you agree with everything we're saying you endorse the BLM organization but we're gonna do everything we can to destroy you and in fact because Tennessee is a single -party consent state that means you can record conversations with only one person knowing I did record those conversations with my fraternity which my mom put into her book and in those conversations my fellow friends my fraternity brothers say if you do not apologize for your post if you do not endorse this group we're gonna do whatever it takes to destroy you and your career and your reputation so it's a more mild form of what happens in communist countries but because these students were not held accountable it is only going to get worse and worse and it did I mean there was one instance where a female student who worked at a fast -food restaurant I would go to for my breakfast in the mornings she admitted in the official College Democrat group text that she was putting quote gross stuff in my drinks every single day because I was a an awful conservative who loved this country and one endorsed the BLM organization and the school guess what the school did when I turned her in what did they do they accepted her into Belmont law school you gotta be kidding me I'm serious 100 % she was rewarded for attacking a political opponent and I think that's dangerous as we see what's going on with President Trump he is being attacked because he's leading in the polls and it's truly unfortunate that we're becoming a banana republic yeah did the did she make you sick with whatever she put in the drinks and we couldn't even get the Nashville police who are unfortunately very short staff due to the liberal City Council and the liberal mayor at the time unfortunately they were they were unable to investigate it because I was perfectly fine thankfully but they said since there was no lasting issues that they refused to investigate and then the school accepted this girl into law school with full knowledge of everything she had done struck so it it shows the systemic problem we're having and imagine if this is happening in a conservative Christian private university in Nashville Tennessee one of the most conservative states imagine what's going on in all 49 other states we don't have the ability to record conversations and to take screenshots of texts and emails and and have such transparency I mean it's terrifying to think what's happening in these other colleges yeah very well said Stevie tell us about that book and tell us about how tell us about how it's been received my husband and I we want to speak out on this we want people to know I need parents and grandparents to know what their children and yes very teen but there still are children what they face and what they are up against when they go away to school we need for parents to fight back we need for parents to take a stand if 40 % of students stopped attending their respective universities you know that the agenda at universities with administration would change so we as conservatives we have that title of being silent majority because usually we are silent well Stevie and I wanted to change that hence the book I use I feel that the book is an educational tool for parents learn from what happened to my son learn from the experience that we've had we went to this university many times it's not far from our home we investigated it we knew people who worked there who taught there and never once did we feel that it was going to be a threat to our son and look what happened so whatever you're seeing I dread to think what's going on at public schools I just dread but I want parents to learn learn read the book you'll see everything is documented in there as my son said fortunately we're able to record and we're able to use everything for information but we need for parents to be more active in their students and their children's educations even when they are at college because they are all indoctrination facilities I did live in a communist country I went to first grade in Zagreb which was then Yugoslavia in 1972 and I can tell you that on my way to school my walk to school every morning I had 1 ,000 US dollars in my backpack I knew if civil unrest broke out at the age of six I knew how to get out of Yugoslavia get into a cab that was waiting for me at the end of the hill and that cab driver would take me to the border of Yugoslavia in Italy where one of my aunts would meet me and my parents would come when they were able I also knew the police officer on the corner he wasn't there for me he wasn't there to make sure that I'd be safe or anybody else he was definitely there to protect the communist regime and Josip Tito who was the dictator at the time and the parallels that I saw with what I experienced living in a communist country and what my son endured at Belmont University it's there if it's clear as day and I want to enlighten everyone who wants to hear from me I want all parents to know this is happening in our country now too we are being silenced and shut down the title of the book folks is outcast how the radical left tried to destroy a young conservative and that is Stevie so Stevie was this a the attack on you was this coming from the BLM movement at Belmont University or in Nashville have you identified the nucleus of where this attack came from okay so let me ask you a broader question we saw during the Trump Tifa uprisings mainly Seattle Portland but obviously across the country Chicago New York but that coincided with this this COVID -19 virus outbreak as a as a university student you've now graduated but Stevie were you were you drawing any parallels to either of these things happening during the Trump administration that seemingly linked to a communist revolt within the country does that making sense were you able to draw any connect any dots Stevie we know from history that it usually doesn't work that way and the government's gonna keep taking more and more of our rights and when you couple that with what is happening what did happen in 2020 with with the riots and people getting away with committing crimes to where if you and I or anyone else who was a conservative did burn down a courthouse like they did in Nashville or protest and kill innocent people in the streets we would go to jail however because they were advancing a political movement that the liberal district attorneys in big cities supported they were let go and they were not punished like they should have been like we would have been so the hypocrisy is terrible I think it does parallel communism to where you know if you remember the black shirts Mussolini's black shirts taking control of the Italian government because they were the advancing political agenda and movement that the powers that be wanted them to they were able to harass and intimidate people into supporting them and I fear that our country is going that way and we need people to stand up now if we're ever hoping to take back our country and get it back on the right track and under control Gloria the book is recently published it looks like it was just published last month and you've got us forward by Sam Sorbo how's the reception of the book been so far what are people saying who have you spoke to about it how is it being received lot Gloria a of media outlets that are reaching out to us I'm being asked to speak almost on a daily basis different organizations different groups Stevie and I have traveled to a lot of different states throughout the country and we will continue to be touring and we are I have started a conversation and parents are now extending that conversation with their friends and that is the goal we need to start with one person talking to another and now the growth has been exponential it's incredible the book is selling very well it's available on Amazon and wherever books are sold but from what I have witnessed and the calls I am getting yes it is and I mean if we as conservatives don't speak up we're gonna be done this is it and if America Falls there is nowhere else to go and our children are being indoctrinated I don't care what level of schooling it's that they're being indoctrinated on every single level and if parents do not set a strong foundation in the household when the child is born and continue that throughout a child's life when they go to college always we will not be America any longer so the book is being well received I do have parents who have reached out to me and who have asked me questions likewise I do have some haters but that's how I know I'm making a difference because the hate is there as well yeah absolutely well said it's like when you went once you're censored you know that you're putting up the correct information on the online right Stevie are you concentrating on any particular campuses as you tour the country you point of a Christian organization and unfortunately they they canceled the meeting that was going to happen at Belmont and so been trying to help the students out there at Belmont but really I think the key thing is getting in front of as many young people as possible who are conservative and letting them know that they're not alone that the hardships they're going through have happened before and they're gonna happen again and we've got to stand up tall for what we believe in and we can't be scared of people saying mean things about us or what people put on social media or what they may say to us we've got to stand up for what we believe in if there's any chance of saving our country thank you very much let me ask you this question Gloria as we as we wind down and then I want to give each of you an opportunity to leave listeners with some final words and thoughts but Gloria as somebody who's lived in a communist country and it sounded like you did at least one year schooling their first grade what's happening right now to the border of your country what's happening down there they believe they have freedom and to an extent they do and I equate it to when I speak I speak to a lot of young people because young people are what United Women Foundation is mostly about and so when I speak I they look at me very oddly when I tell my story but what I have found that works very well is I bring up a lion at a zoo and he's in a zoo he's caged his needs are met he has food he has shelter he has water he has medical attention and it's all for free but he is still in that cage but he is able to roam in that cage correct and then we have the next picture a lion picture lion in Wyoming in Montana anywhere in this country roaming freely that lion bends for himself he finds his own food he finds his own shelter he finds his own water he takes care of himself that lion is independent to me that is the difference that is the bottom line that is the difference between communism and America that is the difference between our constitution is that lion that is roaming free throughout this country and that's what we are right now so that is something that I think resonates with young people and I I believe that putting it in a perspective of a picture like that they are beginning to understand a little bit I hope at least I mean I don't know right now what I'm seeing is a lot of people have said we cannot have an opinion because we have not experienced it which truly breaks my heart my family in Croatia thinks that they are free in effect my family basically is a caged lion yeah incredible and and let me review what is happening right now at the southern border in in the U .S.
A highlight from Ask Charlie Anything 158: The Mass Graves Hoax in Canada? DOJ v. Tesla? #BantheADL is Trending?
"The U .S. dollar has lost 85 % of its value since the 70s, when the dollar decoupled from gold, and the government seems bent on continuing the tradition. Charlie Kirk here. From now until after the elections, the government can print as much money as they want. The last time they did that, inflation went up 9%.

Andrew Kolvedt, executive producer of The Charlie Kirk Show, filling in one last time for Charlie Kirk. This is an Ask Me Anything with producer Blake Neff joining me. We take your questions, including the DOJ's investigation over Tesla and the secret glass house project. We talk about the trending hashtag, ban the ADL. Is it a good idea? Is it a bad idea? What's behind it? And what the heck is the ADL even doing these days? We break it all down. We bring receipts. We talk about Oliver Anthony. Is he a traitor to conservatives or is he just a Rogan bro? And then we break down the intriguing race hoax out of Canada. Mass graves? I think not. We have the details and a really tragic story for Canada, which is just, you know, what can I say about Canada? That and so much more. Buckle up. Here we go. Charlie, what you've done is incredible here. Maybe Charlie Kirk is on the college campus. I want you to know we are lucky to have Charlie Kirk. Charlie Kirk's running the White House, folks. I want to thank Charlie. He's an incredible guy. His spirit, his love of this country. He's done an amazing job building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created. Turning Point USA. We will not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries, destroyed lives. And we are going to fight for freedom on campuses across the country. That's why we are here. Brought to you by the loan experts I trust Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific Mortgage at andrewandtodd .com. I'm going to welcome back Blake Neff, our resident foil contrarian, editorial producer, The Charlie Kirk Show. Blake, welcome to The Charlie Kirk Show. You're trapped with me for the next 60 minutes, Andrew. I know it's that's what our audience is saying in the chat right now, too, by the way, Blake. Blake is fantastic. One of the smartest guys that we have around. One of the smartest political minds, too. The way this works, you guys send questions into freedom at charliekirk .com. We take your questions, we answer them. Normally it's Charlie, but now you got Blake and Andrew. Our first question, Blake, and I know this is near and dear to your heart because we're tweeting and texting about it. Andrew, I just saw a news story in the Daily Mail about a fake mass grave at a Christian school in Canada. I vaguely recall a lot of news coverage of these mass graves two years ago. I think the Pope even traveled to Canada to apologize. What's the deal? And that is Clive from New London, Connecticut. Clive, great question. This was a story breaking this morning. Very interesting stuff. Blake, why don't you fill the audience in on the backstory and then we'll riff. Yeah, Andrew. It's a great story and maybe the audience will like me more because we get to talk about an important topic in American life, which is that Canada sucks. One of the problems with Canada is they really have this national identity that they've embraced over the last few decades. What does it mean to be Canadian? It means to be America, but more liberal. More liberal in every way. They've been really out of sorts, especially since this George Floyd thing blew up. They're like, we didn't really have slavery. We didn't have this great historic crime. They kind of have this Me Too idea that they need to have a reason that they are also Hitler, that they need to be really ashamed of their history. And what they really fixated on was they fixated on these residential schools, which is America had these two. Obviously, they have American Indians in Canada or as First Nations as they call them. And to sort of try to Westernize them, Christianize them, make them sort of more culturally European, they ran these boarding schools or residential schools as they called them and educated First Nations children there for like about a century. And these schools had issues with them as you'd expect. They're often in the middle of nowhere. They were often on sanitary. Physical and sexual abuse would occur at them as has occurred in every and society in schools all around the world. But Canada really fixated on this. And then about two years ago, there was this explosion, this bizarre story where they started these kind of amateur investigators were finding, they claimed to be finding a mysterious possible mass graves at these various residential schools throughout Canada. And this fueled this insane conspiracy theory that children had been murdered in mass at these schools and then buried in mass graves and it was all covered up. And instead of debunking this, the government leaned in on it. And there were dozens of churches in Canada in response to this were attacked with arson attacks, vandalism, some were burned to the ground completely. Like, like I have the numbers 83 that were burned or vandalized. And if you could throw out that other graphic from UnHerd, 83 churches were burned or vandalized in the aftermath of this fabricated hoax. And this this I mean, this is an interesting graphic when they put it up. It says why the Canadian left is burning down churches while progressives tweeted churches serving indigenous communities burned 83. I mean, that's a shockingly high number. It's a huge number. And it really was it's like there are yes, there are anti Christian people in the First Nations community. But a lot of this is really similar to how you'd see it in the US where you have these very radical activists, often just like white activists in big cities. And then like, what are the actual beliefs of the First Nations themselves? Well, a lot of them actually just are Christians. Because, you know, the residential school succeeded in a lot of their mission. And then they get these their churches, which, you know, they might only have one church for 10s of miles. Canada is not a very densely populated place. And these places are getting torched and attacked. And Justin Trudeau's government sort of said like, Oh, well, we oppose we oppose these attacks. But it's very understandable that people are angry. They got the Pope to show up and apologize. The the question was correct about that. But now two years later, they're following up and they're actually okay, well, you claim the remasked graves. Let's dig them up. Let's go find it. And they're either discovering one, often they're just not they're they're just normal cemeteries. And maybe like the headstones, you know, the headstones were made of wood, and they decayed. Or there's just nothing there at all is this story that there was no bodies in this alleged mass grave, they literally had a massive meltdown, which resulted in an anti Christian spasm of, you know, arson and violence that the government enabled. And it was all based on a lie. And it was a lie to fulfill this, like, BDSM type motive that the left has where they like they crave this, a basement, they crave the ability to be like to wail wildly about how evil their ancestors were. And so like, again, it was like it was like me to George Floyd is like, we want to also be evil. We want to also be really racist in our history. We want to say Canada is evil. And so they just inserted this really grave crime into their history that did not happen. Yeah, I mean, I think I think it's it's pretty tragic, because we we've seen this too. And we have a video of this, I believe. Let's let's go ahead and play some of the fallout. As a result of this, not only were they burning down churches, they were tearing down statues, a movement that we saw happen in the United States as well. Let's go ahead and play cut 199. No Pride and Genocide. So here you have a bunch of petulant little children, also known as leftist, dancing on the the the the foundation of a toppled statue saying no pride and genocide. And meanwhile, they are. Yeah, go ahead. It's a statue of Queen Victoria, which the Queen Victoria did not really personally preside. I mean, she was a constitutional monarch. She's really just a symbol of the British Empire at its apex, but she was not running the genocide. She was just the queen of Britain. And but they again, they're like, well, America, they and their entire identity is so bound up with America. They're like, well, America's toppling Confederate statues. We don't have any Confederates because we weren't in the American Civil War. So who do we get? Get rid of the queen. Well, in this, this self hatred that the left has for their own history, you know, colonialism, patriarchy, whatever. It's really this insidious virus that has crept into the the West. We call it a collective psychosis in the Western world. It's, it hates anything strong, it hates anything exceptional, it hates anything that can dominate something else. So if you have enough power to dominate, whether it be indigenous populations in this instance, or become a global hegemon, because, you know, this is why you don't see the left, you know, especially our leaders in Washington fight back with any gusto against the de -dollarization movement that's happening. It's almost like they, they want to self flagellate to the point of parity with the rest of the world, if not us getting dominated by them. And it's a, it's a very distinct characteristic of the left, I believe the Unabomber actually had some interesting quotes about this, but like, maybe we can bust those out for next segment. But what do you think, and we've only got a minute in this segment, what do you think drives this passionate response on the left? You know, if I had a full easy answer to that question, I think it'd be easier to defeat this, because it really is. It is a profound force. You know, the Unabomber thing, he points out that they do, they hate the West, but not because of any of the bad things they've done. They specifically it is because they've been so successful. And in a weird way, we're victims of our own success, which is, you know, the West kind of flagellates itself over slavery, because we had the innovation of deciding that slavery was morally wrong, and abolishing it purely on moral humanitarian grounds. That was an innovation of the West that we have exported to the rest of the world. And our reward for ourselves is to destroy ourselves over this, or in Canada's case, to go the extra mile and invent crimes that did not happen, because we are so desperate.
Here are the restrictions on transgender people that are moving forward in US states
"Drag shows, pronouns, bathroom use and transgender children. I'm Lisa dwyer. Florida is banning gender affirming care for minors with new restrictions on adults seeking treatment. It's amongst a series of anti LGBTQ+ bills signed by Republican governor Ron DeSantis. The bills restrict pronoun use in schools and require people to use the bathroom corresponding with their sex at birth, the ceremony at a Christian school in Tampa had a campaign like Phil to it with desantis tossing sharpies to the crowd, as opposed to when he privately signed measures on abortion and gun rights. Desantis has made anti LGBTQ+ legislation, a large part of his agenda as he builds towards a presidential campaign,
Intro and wrap for AP Religion Roundup
"I'm Walter ratliff with the religion minute. This spring Grammy winning singer Lauren daigle was in the throes of a record deal that would broaden her fan base. As plans for a new release were spinning up, a recent promotional concert caused her to pause and reflect on her role. Just as she was supposed to hold a Nashville preview concert in March, 6 people, including three children, were killed in a Christian school shooting. Daigle's concert turned into a prayer vigil for the families. That night, at the privileged, it was actually really hard for me to talk about hope. She said giving people hope has always been her goal as a songwriter. But she's had to think hard about how the shooting focused her attention. Says songs like, thank God I do offer a hopeful outlook. I feel like there was a lot of animosity in the years that we all just experienced. Bagel says she wants her music to help bring that hope. I'm Walter ratliff.
A recent tragedy prompts Lauren Daigle to reflect on her role as a performer
"On this week's AP religion roundup. A recent tragedy prompts Lauren daigle to reflect on her role as a performer. The spring grimy winning singer Lauren daigle was in the throes of a record deal between Atlantic and the Christian music label centricity that would broaden her fan base. When I can't feel a thing as plans for a new release, we're spinning up a recent promotional concert caused her to pause and reflect on her role. Just as she was supposed to hold a Nashville preview concert in March, 6 people, including three children, were killed in a Christian school shooting. Daigle's concert turned into a prayer vigil for the families. That night at the privilege, it was actually really hard for me to talk about hope. I feel like this this shook me pretty deep. She said giving people hope has always been her goal as a songwriter. But she's had to think hard about how the shooting focused her attention. I went to counseling yesterday and just mourned. I was like, I can't get away from this. I don't know who I feel didn't know you would probably fall off here I don't know. Daigle says songs like, thank God I do offer a hopeful outlook. I feel like there was a lot of animosity in the years that we all just experienced. And this is a song. There are two sides to every story. It's a song to be able to listen to each other and say, okay, we got to live out these words that we're preaching. We've got to stand with this conviction and know at the end of the day, how are we going to unify? How are we going to stand together on things? How are we going to stop the chaos? That's all around. What are the things that we're going to do that are actually going to improve the world? If you ever had those who came in and nagel says she wants her music to help bring that hope. I'm Walter ratliff.
Pastor Allen Jackson: "They Are Hunting Christians"
"To my friend pastor Alan Jackson of world outreach church in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Okay, so sticking with current events. There was a shooting recently, not far from you at a Christian school, a trans terrorist, a crazy woman who wrote a manifesto that they will not show us. Clearly specifically targeted Christians and the media is afraid to look into this to talk about this. It doesn't fit their narrative. Well, I would say a little different. They're not afraid. Their purposely hiding the ball. It should become a part of their propaganda where they hide the truth, and they give you the narrative they want. There's nothing to do with fear. It's intentional manipulation. And the Christians have got to become more savvy consumers. This would have been a hate crime if you'd plugged any other minority into that school. If it had been a Hispanic school, a Jewish school, a Muslim school, a black school, it would have been a hate crime before the sun went down. It was a Christian school, the purpose, the person clearly went hunting Christian hunting Christian children and some specific children, and they won't release the documentation that says that. I know some of the officers that have worked on it. It's not a mystery. They're hiding that. And we don't demand the truth. It's unfortunate until the Christians decide to stand up. We've reached a pivot point. And honestly, I don't know what the outcome is going to be because I don't see enough expressions of courage right now to cause me to believe we're going to walk this back. I think the current generation of young people are old people. We couldn't repeat Normandy because we wouldn't load those landing crafts and head into that fire. It's going to take that kind of a commitment to see a biblical world you come back to the public square. They are hunting Christians. They're telling us that Christians aren't welcome in a school because putting Christian student teachers are dangerous for the students in the population. That's been walked back by a court.
The Clear and Present Danger of Transgender Ideology
"Christians need to understand the clear and present danger that the ideology that transgenderism presents to decency and modern life. Now I'm being very precise with my words. Are there nice people that are under the transgender delusion, of course, they're all made in the image of God, and they deserve help and compassionate care, which by the way is not chopping off their genitals at age 13 and putting them on lupron and antidepressants. That's not compassionate or caring for anybody. But this is a very serious issue, and it's not going away. And it's not something I take joy in. It's not something I want to share with you with delight, but we have to pinpoint this because the media refuses to talk about it. Because they make it seem as if, oh, you're intolerant if you daresay anything about this, your hateful, your bigoted, okay, let's just go through the facts, okay? There was a Christian school that was targeted as a hate crime, and three kids and three adults were killed. By a transgender individual that was likely under a delusion of anti Christian hate by this transgender ideology, okay? We haven't seen the manifesto. This is largely speculation, but we do know the essence of what she believed is her worldview. There was another shooting that you might not have heard about, that thankfully was thwarted in Colorado Springs of another transgender individual that wanted to shoot up Christians shoot up Christian schools. Thankfully, the police were able to intervene and praise God arrest that person. I could go through other examples as well that I think are important. And but this kind of violence and intimidation, all of a sudden showed up at a turning point USA chapter event at San Francisco state university. Now,
A Conversation With Chinese Cultural Revolution Survivor Xi Van Fleet
"We should have a tradition of free speech, but a Christian school allegedly Christian school. Whitworth university in Spokane, Washington. Has just voted to block a turning point USA chapter from hosting a Chinese dissident. Yeah, we have nothing to learn from a Chinese dissident. We're tolerant. Meanwhile, we're not going to let the Chinese dissident come on campus. Whitworth university, which you guys can go to Whitworth dot EDU and express your opinion to them, has done this. Well, joining us now is G van fleet's survivor of Mao's China, senior fellow at 1776 action. G welcome to the program. Well, thank you so much, Charlie. You are my hero. I listen to your podcast every day. Oh, that's very kind. Thank you so much for inviting me. Well, thank you. Well, now you're on the podcast. So God bless you that that really means a lot. So G tell us about this situation here involving Whitworth university. Why are they so afraid of having you attend on campus? Yeah, it is a question I have myself. And I was invited and then later told I was a band of voted out. And they reason gave me that they saw from my Twitter account that I was supposedly anti BMM and LGBT. And whatever. And that is absolutely insane. First of all, I have to say, I am I never against LGBT community. That is a false accusation. And but I do have according to what they say. I think they got from a tweet that tweeted out. And it's a list of vocabulary that I said is a woke terms. And unit including BMM. BMN is not that I say that Marxism. They are absolutely claim themselves that they are marxists. They are trained marxists. These people, this student do not have the correct information. Then
New York Post: FBI Is Stalling the Release of Audrey Hale's Manifesto
"An update. This again is from the reporting of the New York Post. And they're citing a Nashville politician who says it's actually the FBI, so the local police want to be able to release this manifesto of the transgender terrorist, but it's the FBI that stepped in and said, no, you can not release this information. Now, metro Nashville council member Courtney Johnston told the New York Post quote what I was told is her manifesto was a blueprint on total destruction and it was so detailed at the level of what she had planned. The council member goes on to say that document and the wrong person's hands would be astronomically dangerous. So I want you to read between the lines here and what they're not telling us is that this individual targeted a Christian school. And by the way, our understanding is perhaps others were targeted as well. Fortunately, the police came in and took out the terrorists. But that this was literally directed at people of faith. Because of this person's selected gender identity. Now, according to the council member, the FBI is stalling the release and they say even if it happens only a portion of the manifesto will be made public. Quote, I personally don't want to know the depths to which her psychosis reached when I'm told by a high ranking police official that it keeps him up at night, I'm going to defer that person to that person and that agency that I don't need to read it.
Dinesh Reflects on the Recent U.S. Mass Shootings
"How do we think about this issue of mass shootings? I confess and Debbie and I have talked about this. We both kind of feel the same way. There's something a little unsatisfactory about the nature of this debate. Now, just recently, last week or a couple of weeks, we've had two mass shootings in the United States. One in Nashville, that was the transgender domestic terrorist Audrey Hale or aid inhale and the shooting was at a Christian school, which is happens to be also affiliated with a church. And the victims included the principle, apparently the daughter of the pastor who was counsels the was counseling, Audrey Hale, and some other kids. I mean, just a very terrible and tragic situation. And then shortly thereafter in Louisville, Kentucky, a guy who was employed in a bank, basically goes, goes Berserk. And goes up to the bank and does the shooting and apparently he was about to be fired. He was also we know being treated for depression and so you got two incidents in both cases, by the way, let's look for some commonalities here. And there are some. First of all, even though it's commonly said that these mass shootings are somehow done by right wingers or white supremacists or Republicans. The reality is the opposite. There have been a number of transgender shootings. In fact, I shared a thread on Twitter with four or 5 of them. And by and large, when you find these shooters, they tend to be leftists. They tend to be Democrats, the bank employees certainly was, if you look at a social media, he's got rants against Trump. He was apparently a big COVID mask and vaccine guy. Posting all kinds of COVID content. So this is certainly not any right winger or any kind of Republican. He also, by the way, listed his pronouns as he and him. Which is something that by and large you do if you are a progressive or on the left.
Cameron Sexton: Determined to Find Legislation That Protects Kids
"Talking to state representative Mark white from the Memphis area, and he actually has legislation that would in fact protect children that these two men opposed. That's getting lost in the conversation, but even beyond that, you had 6 people that were killed, three of them children in a Christian school, and now they're being almost used as props to make these individuals look like victims. Well, these three individuals, after their 45 minutes of doing whatever you want to call it, I call the protest on the House floor, leading the balcony in protest. When their members got them in a side room, they asked if they were going to be arrested now, Todd. You'll ask to be arrested or if you're going to be arrested, if you didn't do something gravely wrong. And so they knew immediately what they did was wrong to the level of wondering if they were going to be arrested. And so that's not how you do it. And so we're going to follow what the House rules are. We're going to continue to follow the House rules. And we're going to look at legislation to pass that protects Tennessee families and children at school at public at private. Protect children who are trying to walk home from school or playing in the park. We have legislation to do that. The governor just announced SROs and every public school, we set up a private fund to help private or help a public fund to help private schools do SROs. And so we had the capability sorry about that. So we had the capability of doing that. The thing is, here's the thank God. Some Democrats are opposed to having SROs in schools. They oppose it.
People From California Are Bringing Their Politics to Tennessee
"I want to tell you what happened yesterday at the Tennessee state capitol. They've been dealing with an issue going back to the shooting at the Christian school of Nashville. Where you had 6 good Christian people, three good Christian children. Who were gunned down by a transgender terrorist. And the Democrats in the state are using that incident as a way to attack law abiding gun owners here in the volunteer state. And there's been a raging debate on Capitol Hill in Nashville about how to protect kids. As a matter of fact, one of the measures that the Republicans have advanced will provide armed security guards at every school in the state, which I think is a great idea. Whether we hire people or we have volunteers, we have retired military veterans, we have retired law enforcement, maybe we have just dads. That are, okay, moms two, but we have law abiding moms and dads that are volunteering to stand guard at the local schools. But the Democrats don't want that. They want to get rid of all the guns. And so the Democrats in Tennessee are a pretty nefarious bunch. They love to play the race card. They hate guns and they want to take away our freedom. Now, there's a big problem, though, because in Tennessee, the state House is controlled by the Republicans. We talk a lot about California and how there's a super majority of Democrats that control California, which is why that state is quickly becoming a wasteland. But in Tennessee, there is a super majority of Republicans, and they control everything. And therefore, life in the volunteer state is pretty darn good, and that's why people from California are moving here. The problem is they're bringing their politics with them. And we don't like that.
Thousands Converge at Tennessee State Capitol for 'Transurrection'
"Anth is very moment. There are thousands of people that have converged on the Tennessee state capitol for a transection. Now this is, I mean, again, if you want to compare it to whatever happened on J 6, I suppose you can do that. I'm just using the rules that Democrats have put forward, so using the rules of the Democrats, this would, in fact, be an insurrection, but because this is an insurrection that supports the elimination of the Second Amendment and in defense of the transgender movement, we on this program are calling it a transection. Now I want to set the stage for you here and I want to explain why this is important because this kind of nonsense is happening and is going to happen at state houses all across America. Just remember, just remember, the left now understands the power of the state House. And in Tennessee, we are controlled by a super majority of Republicans. They control everything, and it's great. And we live in a state where we do not have an income tax. We live in a state where parents have a big say and what happens to their local public schools. We live in a state where now it is illegal for doctors to make millions of dollars by medically mutilating children. And we also have a new law on the books that does not allow a child to go to a sexually exotic drag show or any other sort of sexually provocative program. And we can debate the merits of that law, is it an overreach, probably so, but at least at least the lawmakers are trying to do something. So a few days ago, there was a horrible shooting in Nashville. You know the story covenant Christian school. And 6 people were killed by a transgender person with a gun. Armed to the teeth. We don't know how this person was able to acquire all the firepower. They say she got all the guns legally, but she had no job and she was living at home with her parents at the age of 28 years old. And thank God for members of the metro Nashville police department who went in there and took out the bad guy,
Pastor Douglas Wilson of Christ Church Is a Renaissance Man
"Am talking to Douglas Wilson, pastor of Christ church in Moscow, Idaho, the writer of all about a hundred books, and I can't even begin to list them. So you're kind of a renaissance man. You've been doing many, many things over the decades there in Moscow, Idaho, not just pastoring a church, but you found it a publishing company. You started a college. Tell me about these things. Yes, we started first logos school, which is a K through 12 classical Christian school. We started it for my oldest daughter's kindergarten year. And it's now a thriving school and sort of been the flagship school of the renewal of the classical Christian school movement in North America. Excuse me, I ought to have mentioned that upfront. I forgot how central you, sir, have been in the classical Christian movement in America. And so I do want to talk to you about that because that is huge. Absolutely. If you'd done nothing else that is just huge, do me a favor, just tell me how many kids go to the school in Moscow, Idaho. There are about 650, which when you consider the size of Moscow, it's an enormous school for a town on our size. And then the association of classical and Christian schools began here, and they're now hundreds of schools around the country. And some internationally that are following this model of classical Christian education. And then we started a new saint Andrews college, which has got a couple of hundred students in it. It's a small liberal arts college that we patterned ourselves off of the curriculum that Harvard had in the 1600s. So that was the baseline that we began with. And then adapted and modified for our era.
Transgenderism: An Unhappy Place
"My second take on this matter is that as this terrible murder of the children and teachers at the Christian school in Nashville reveals there is there is a profound unhappiness and anger. In many trans people, that has nothing to do with transphobia. It is inherent to the issue. My Friends, this is said, in sympathy, but even more than in sympathy with a desire to actually confront the truth, it is not easy, I'm not sure it's possible. To be happy and have and have inner peace, if you say to yourself, forget to others, if you say to yourself, that you are not the sex that you are. It is inherently an unhappy place to be.

"That. That is the problem. And it would be better to have a much broader discussion. And what is the source of that problem? I have my theory, but what does Molly Hemingway think? Of the problem of presentation. I think I'm gonna have to get a ton of things that are quite typical for other problems that we have too. Our media are nearly completely on the left. And not just like typical people on the left, they tend to be more radical on the left than a typical Democrat. They go into media for the precise purpose of pushing political agendas. And so they view these horrible incidents as opportunities to advance an agenda rather than report the news or think about the communities that are affected by it and the hiring firing promotion decisions all reinforce this. But it's a real lack of diversity in newsrooms and it's not going to get better because they haven't been trying to make it better for decades now. But that contribute to all these problems. I want to get your I also think that people who are secular. I don't know if Terry secular a man of faith. I don't know. But they have trouble with good and evil stories. And John Steinbeck, I quoted him earlier from east of Eden. There is one story. And there's only one story. Good versus evil. And that story is playing out everywhere in every context and everyone's enmeshed in it. But they have great trouble with that Molly. You say trouble, but you know, I think everyone, everyone believes in evil, and it's, again, the narrowness of the evil with which our media are talking about that is the problem. That's the only view Republicans is evil. They only view their political opponents as evil, but they do quickly lock this into a good versus evil type of story. They just didn't let the facts lead them into where it would normally lay. Well, said, Molly always a pleasure. MZ Hemingway on Twitter watcher on Fox reader at the federalist thank you, Molly. Welcome back, America. I'm Hugh Hewitt on the morning after a terrible, terrible murder in Nashville of 6 victims, three children, three adults by a 28 year old woman who had legally purchased weapons. And so the debate will eventually evolve into arms control and guns control. And I'm going to talk with senator John cotton about that. Good morning, senator, welcome as the father of small children. I'm sure this upsets you as much as it does any parent or grandparent. Good morning, that's a sad day in Nashville on Saturday for our country as we mourn with all of the families, the lost loved ones and that goal in Nashville and really their entire community there. And it's hardworking tragedy. Can I ask you a, this is a technical question that I've seen discussed and I don't know. It's a question of fact if the Democrats when they had their majority in the House and the Senate had taxed AR-15, the means of raising revenues, you know, a $1000 a gun. And they had put that into the budget and then they had added it as a reconciliation bill. Would that do you believe past the parliamentarians review? At least an arguable case that it could have you. I don't know, ultimately how our parliamentarians would come down on it, but certainly there's an arguable case, but I think your point is well taken that the Democrats frequently criticize Republicans for not confiscating weapons from law abiding citizens, yet when they have political power as they did for the past two years, they don't take action to do so themselves in part because they realize that not only would it not solve the problems we have with mass murder in this country, it also would be infringement on the rights of law abiding citizens. But it is at least possible that that would be upheld and was any effort made to do that when they had the reconciliation power, which is the power to bypass the 60 vote veto. No, not to my knowledge you. Perhaps they discuss it internally and dropped it, but not to my knowledge. Did they do anything on the dreamers? Another favorite of the left to bring up repeated that we've had a terrible tragedy in Juarez this morning, 37 people are dead at a refugee and immigrant center in Mexico, not in the United States and many more are believed to be in danger of losing their life because of crime conditions, whatever. Did they bring up the dreamers? I don't mean whatever and dismiss it. I just mean, I don't know the facts. No serious effort on my part on my knowledge. Of course, there's always legislation introduced. But Syria would be bringing it up in the committee to try to pass down a committee and then Chuck Schumer bringing it to the floor. That was certainly not done. And even though you probably could have gotten 60 votes or more, I mean, I've supported legislation in the past and the Trump era that the president asked me to help draft and support that would have given some kind of regularized status who were brought here illegally when they were minors, but in return for things that would stop the problem in the long term, like building the wall and changing our silent laws. So system can't be gamed and stopping chain migration. But there is no serious effort to try to forge that kind of compromise during the last two years for the Democrats..

"None of it is designed for the benefit of the children. It's all designed to make a particular constituency. You'll feel better about itself. That's all this really is. Okay, final thing that I hate. So this would be, again, major national news story. If the parties were reversed, according to Kentucky, senator Rand Paul, he confirmed on Monday that a member of his staff was brutally attacked on the streets of Washington, D.C. over the weekend. He said in a statement this weekend, a member of my staff was brutally attacked in broad daylight in Washington, D.C.. I joined, I asked you to join Kelly and me and praying for a speedy and complete recovery and thanking first responders hospital staff and police for their diligent actions. Apparently, the person sustained a life threatening injuries, a suspect was arrested with an assault with intense who kill using a knife, apparently as a repeat stabbing. Again, if a Democrat had been attacked in a Republican area, that, of course, would be worthy of note, but it's Republican being attacked in a democratic area. So obviously that is not worthy of node. Whatsoever. It is completely irrelevant to everyone and can final thing that I hate today. Worst taking the day. We were in search for the worst take of the day with regards to the shooting. The worst take of the day actually came courtesy of a person named David PacMan who is a left wing podcast, I believe. And he tweeted this out. Quote, very surprising that there would be a mass shooting at a Christian school given that lack of prayer is often blamed for these horrible events. Is it possible they weren't praying enough, or correctly, despite being a Christian school? Well, that's a hell of a take right there. Is that probably they needed to, they were praying wrong. The kids were praying wrong. So that's probably why that happened. Or obviously he's attempting to mock the idea of religion at all. Isn't prayer supposed to protect you? Well, I mean, behind me, as I mentioned before, is Saint Peter's. What if I told David pakman, there's an entire religion predicated on the idea that the son of God was killed by humans. What if I told you there was an entire religion predicated on the idea that there are people that they call martyrs and there are a bunch of statues of them right over there. You can see them. And they prayed super hard and also died as martyrs. What if I told David PacMan that? One of my favorite things is when atheists pretend that there are questions about the Odyssey or the first questions that have been asked about this matter. Oh my God, you're saying the bad things happen to religious people? Well, it doesn't have to bunk your entire religion. No, actually, let me just explain. It does not debunk any of my religion or any of any religion because that's the stupidest mistake of all time. Sometimes God doesn't answer prayers in the way that we wish him to answer our prayers because God isn't us. But that does not change why people pray.

"Thriving of local institutions. And so I'm very excited that in the state of Florida, the state of Florida has now passed universal school choice. The money now follows the students. It's not followed the schools, and that means that every kid will have the ability in the state of Florida to get a credit of something like $8000 in order to pursue a private education if they so wish. Here was governor Ron DeSantis in Florida. This is a win for him. And so people have said, wait a minute. If you give parents a choice, if you let parents take scholarship and go to the school of their choice, somehow that's going to hurt education performance. And in Florida, work proof positive that that's just the opposite of what actually happened. The fact of the matter is our school districts perform better because they've embraced choice. Our charter schools perform better because they have to compete for individual students. They're not entitled to get anybody as a charter school. And of course, having private schools that can service the needs of parents so that a parent will take that scholarship and say, you know what, I want to go to this particular school because of what they're offering. All that has created a very positive feedback. It's going to be great. And this makes Florida the fourth state to actually adopt universal school choice more of this. This is how you rebuild local institutions can power back to parents to re congregate in their communities instead of using the power of government to break up those communities. Already, time for a couple of things that I hate. So we've already seen the bulldozer of Roald Dahl and the public generally didn't like that and so they walked it back a little bit. This is the attempt to remove words like fat from Augustus Luke's descriptors in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Well now, CNN reports that the novels of Agatha Christie are the latest works to be revised to remove a racist references and other language considered offensive to modern audiences. According to the UK's the telegraph, publisher Harper Collins has edited some passages and entirely removed to others from its new digital editions of some of Christie's detective mysteries featuring her cure poirot and miss marvel. I'm a big Agatha Christie fan, I really enjoy hercule poirot. The amendments of the books include changes to the narrator's inner monologue. For example, pois rose description of another character as a Jew, of course, and Christie's debut novel, the mysterious affair styles has now been stripped out of the new version. Now, as a Jew, of course, I can say that I don't find that particularly useful. I think that actually understanding the biases of authors when they're writing is quite useful and historically interesting and necessary in order to actually understand the books that you are reading. If you strip out all the stuff that we find offensive today from the books, you're missing half of their context. Throughout the revised version of the short story collection, miss marple's final cases and two other stories, the word native has now been replaced with local, which doesn't change anything. A passage describing a servant as black and grinning has been revised and the character is now simply referred to as nodding, with no reference to his race. Also, you're not allowed to refer to nubian people in death in Death on the Nile. None of this is going to make the books better in any way. And it's not going to prevent people from taking offense at Agatha Christie's original verbiage. But it is a great way to demonstrate your fields to the woke idiots who have decided that it's necessary to rewrite all of history in order to appease their modern sensibilities. Well, meanwhile, speaking of woke idiots who are attempting to appease modern sensibilities and attacking parents in the process, the inexpressibly foolish Alexander Ocasio-Cortez. She yesterday was suggesting a bad timing here. She said that predatory cisgender and straight men are the ones after your kids. This is a hell of a take. Many of these disgusting and insinuating attacks on trans and LGBT people are actually projections of what predatory cisgender and often straight men do when left alone the presence of women or sometimes horribly children. So instead of getting you to challenge the patriarchy, they're trying to get you to challenge the very gender expressiveness that challenges patriarchy. Don't get it twisted, 'cause a lot of people attacking drag are projecting. It's all projecting. So now men gyrating sexualized around kids. If you object to that, it's because you wish to sexualize kids in some fetishistic way. The utter insanity and stupidity of this point of view. But again,

"With a network of small complicated rules. Minute and uniform through which the most original minds and the most energetic characters can not penetrate to rise above the crowd. The will of man is not shattered, but soft and Ben and guided men are seldom forced by it to act, but they are constantly restrained from acting. Such a power does not destroy, but it prevents existence. It does not your eyes, but it compresses and innovates extinguishes in stupefied people till each nation is reduced to nothing better than a flock of timid and industrious animals of which the government is the shepherd. I've always thought that the servitude of the regular quiet and gentle kind, which I have just described might be combined more easily than is commonly believed, but some of the outdoor forms of freedom. And then it might even establish itself under the wing of the sovereignty of the people. Yeah, that. Now Alexis de tocqueville in 1836. Again, remove all of the actual institutions and roles and rules that shape us and what you end up with is people who are completely disconnected. And pursuing their own version of what they think of as happiness, but restricted in that happiness from engaging with the things that actually make life meaningful. And then we're shocked when there is additional mental illness. And we are shocked when there is additional depression. We are shocked and there's additional suicide. We're shocked when people are anxious and scared for the future of the country and feel nothing in common with their neighbors. When you abandon all of those institutions, that's how you get. This is how that national shooting, in some ways, on a symbolic level is, it says a lot on a symbolic level. The attack of the radical individual on these small community church school. The idea of the person who is freed from all rules and roles. And who must attack a source of rules and roles. And the attack children in that way. If we are going to the left legs to use particular shootings, do you use particular violent incidents as sort of metaphors for broader American society? If we're talking about the metaphor of broader American society, that would be a pretty solid one. Already, meanwhile, in other news, Benjamin Netanyahu in Israel has now suspended the judicial overhaul that chaos was causing serious shutdowns in the State of Israel, according to The Wall Street Journal, Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Mondays suspended a controversial judicial overhaul plan and attempt to pull the country back from the brink after mass protests and strikes rock the nation. Nintendo, yesterday, he both explained what he was doing in terms of judicial reform and then he also explained why he was temporarily delaying the judicial law here he was with Piers Morgan explaining why exactly he was seeking judicial overhead in the first place. Right now you have a situation where 15 unelected members of the Supreme Court effectively govern Israel. They can decide things that affect our military, our economy, our foreign relations, our battle with terrorism, is that right, is that democratic? No, it's not democratic. You want to correct it. You don't say that those other democracies are somehow tainted, are somehow not democratic because they have a better balance of power. So that obviously is pretty uncontroversial. And here's the thing, even in Israel, that's relatively uncontroversial, but the right and the left, many in the center, agreed. There has to be some reform of the judicial system. The real battle in Israel as I was explaining yesterday, the real battle is not really over judicial reform. The real battle is over the future of the country. So basically what happened in the last election cycle is that the right one, a fairly solid victory in the polling. They ended up with a 64 seat majority in the Knesset. That allowed them to govern. The left does not like the right one, and to the left decided to deploy to the streets in order to essentially shut down all of the major mechanisms of the Israeli economy. They blocked highways. They shut down the airports yesterday. They used extra legal means in order to try and threaten the government into not pursuing this judicial reform. So to suggest that that's a democratic movement is sort of bizarre. You have an elected coalition that is attempting to pursue a more democratic policy, which is taking power away from an unelected branch that is using that power and bad ways. And then you have people mobbing in the streets, supposedly in defense of democracy, but trying to overthrow the will of a democratically elected majority. Okay, now, that's not the whole story because the truth is that there are serious underlying political issues here. The left looks at the right and what they see is a coalition of some people who actually want some procedural changes for good reasons. And then they also see some people who they believe are simply trying to grab the levers of power and to prevent any checks and balances from obtaining in the State of Israel at all. But Netanyahu did the right thing yesterday. He said we have to slow this down. We have to be more incremental in how we approach this, which is, in fact, the right solution. The right move forward too fast. They drove enormous opposition. And what they found out is that the extra governmental levers of power in Israel are quite dynamic. They're able to literally shut down pretty much the entire country because again, a lot of the economic and even military power in Israel is not necessarily on the side of the government. And so that split was sort of exposed, which means more incrementalism and more compromise. That's exactly what Nintendo pledged yesterday. He's trying to avoid a rift within the people. I decided to suspend. The second and third reading from the law in this Knesset tenure. In order to give time to get a broader consensus. So they'll go back to the drawing board, which is probably what they should do. It is worth noting. The yesterday that was a massive counter protest in Israel. Probably a 100,000 people minimum in the middle of Israel who are on the side of Netanyahu's the media only covered one side and suggested this was sort of a rising up against a totalitarian dictatorship that's a lie on every level. And again, this suggestion that it is a one sided issue, it is not. There will be discussions, presumably, some sort of judicial formal eventually get done. But compromising conciliation are going to be the path forward right there. I will say at this point that I think that this is a good indicator that there are just tons of people out there who are constantly seeking an end of the world apocalyptic scenario to talk about. On all sides, this is the last election. If we don't get X done, the country will be over Civil War. People are saying that in Israel, you'll say that with every election in the United States. That is not only bad politics, it is bad policy. It may be good politics in the short term because you're allowed to get people in the streets and get people all ramped up. But if you actually wish to effectuate change, it's a real problem because it stands in the way of the actual constructive dialogs that we can actually have with one another in order to foreign policy. And instead, it just makes politics a series of reactionary swings from one side to the other. One side says the apocalypse, and maybe they win. Then the other side says, well, the other side won't. That's the apocalypse. And then they win. And then you never actually get to any effectuated change. Okay, time for some things I like, and then some things that I hate. So things that I like today. You can see the backdrop. I haven't mentioned it the whole show, but we are actually in Rome today. I'm filming with my friend Jordan Peterson. We have a new series that's going to be coming out very soon in which we visit some of the world's great places and talk about the history and philosophy of western civilization. It really is fantastic behind us for those who don't know. They're looking at the Saint Peter's and Saint Peter's obviously is the center of Catholicism. The most powerful church institution in the history of the world. It's an astonishing building. The city of Rome is absolutely incredible. The history of Rome is fascinating from the actual sort of Rome of HBO and the swords

"All that would be left, essentially, was a tutelary state at the very top of American society and a bunch of atomized individuals. Those atomized individuals still have individual economic interests. They're all still interested in making money on the sort of personal individual level, but they don't have any of the militating institutions in life that actually give people meaning and purpose. It's no coincidence that at the exact same time, more and more Americans are saying that they are disconnected from American values. More and more Americans are unhappy. A huge number of Americans are now unhappy. A huge number of Americans believe their kids are not better off. A huge number of Americans believe that America is in serious trouble. That is because as you remove those intermediate institutions, we're supposed to have some sort of abiding faith in an overarching political infrastructure, but why should we? That overarching political infrastructure used to be a reflection of common values that we share, but now those common values are basically gone. And it's not as though this is some sort of giant mystery. Going all the way back to Alexis de tocqueville. And to tocqueville suggested, quite correctly, back in like 1836, exactly what would happen in western societies, the rise of soft despotism. Here's a quote from Alexis tocqueville and if this doesn't sound like modern American society to you, I'm not sure what to tell you. Here's what the tocqueville says, quote I seek to trace the novel features under which despotism may appear in the world. The first thing that strikes the observation is an innumerable multitude of men. All equal and alike incessantly endeavoring to procure the petty and paltry pleasures, which with which they go out their lives. Each of them living apart is as a stranger to the fate of all the rest. His children and his private Friends constitute him the whole of mankind. As for the rest of his fellow citizens, he's close to them, but he doesn't see them. He touches them, but he doesn't feel them. He exists only in himself and for himself alone. If his Kindred still remain him, he may be said at any rate to have lost his country. Above this race of man stands an immense and tutelary power, which takes upon itself alone, secure their gratification and to watch over their fate. That power is absolute minute regular provident and mild. It would be like the authority of a parent if, like that parent, its object was to prepare men for manhood, but it seeks on the contrary to keep them in perpetual childhood. It is well content that people should rejoice, provided they think nothing of nothing, but rejoicing. For their happiness, such a government willingly labors, but it chooses to be the sole agents and the only arbiter of that happiness. It provides for their security, for season supplies their necessities, facilitates their pleasures, manages their principal concerns, directs their industry, regulates the descent of property, and some divides their inheritances. What remains, but to spare them all, the care of thinking and all the trouble of living. Thus, it every day renders the exercise of the free agency a man less useful and less frequent, it circumscribes the will within a narrower range and gradually robs a man of all the uses of himself. The principle of equality has prepared men for these things. It is predisposed men to endure them, and often to look on them as benefits. After having thus successively taken each member of the community in its powerful grasp and fashion him at will, the supreme power then extends his arm over the whole community. It covers the surface of society

"Has, and these ones as guns, of course. So Joe Biden, yesterday. Our incoherent president, he came downstairs, and he began his press conference. He apparently already knew that the shooting had taken place. He randomly started talking about ice cream, which was very strange.

And we have to do more to stop gun violence. It's ripping our communities apart, ripping a soul, this nation, ripped at the very soul of the nation. And we have to do more to protect our schools. So they aren't turned into prisons. You know, the shooter in this situation reported we had two assault weapons and a pistol to make a 47. So I call on Congress again to pass my assault weapons ban. It's about time that we began to make some more progress. Oh, well, I mean, he's already got the answer ready to go. The school shootings. And of course, you have the regular sort of cultural leaders out there suggesting that gun control is the answer. Peter Frampton, another cultural leader. He tweeted out, you know, there was a school shooting in the 1990s in the UK and they called for a massive gun buyback and registration and seizure program. There haven't been any school shooting since. I would just like to note at this point that there were no school shootings before. The school shooting in Scotland that happened. And I believe in 19 96, that school shooting was I believe the only recorded school shooting in all of the UK in decades. So you're taking a sample size that does not exist. And then you are suggesting that the addition of an independent variable now change the sample. I mean, if you have zero in the 40s, you're on the 50s, you're on the 60s, you're on the 70s, you're only in the 80s. One in the 90s, piece of legislation, zero in the 2000s, zero in the 2010s. I'd like to suggest that it might not have been the gun legislation that actually changed, that when you have a sample size of one that is very difficult to draw any sort of serious data based conclusion. But again, the left doesn't need data. The left has a do something mentality. And the do something is always take the rights of normal Americans who aren't the problem. So for example, a Korean Jean Pierre World War press secretary out there saying, doing the how many people have to be murder routine. And let's be real about this. If Democrats really took this seriously, you know what they would have done. They might have tried to push this sort of assault weapons ban gun control routine. They're going to try to seriously push that when they controlled both branches of Congress and the presidency, which was last I checked about 35 seconds ago. Here's Korean Jean Pierre doing what if I get very emotional about gun control to push this? In his State of the Union, the president called on Congress to do something. To stop the epidemic of gun violence, tearing families apart, tearing communities apart. How many more children have to be murdered? Before Republicans in Congress will step up and act to pass the assault weapons ban. I mean, do something is not an actual plan. You know what would be an actual plan? Maybe a few things would be a natural plan. The Democrats were rejected all of these, by the way, so far as I'm aware. Addition of school security at all schools. Jewish day schools are guarded like banks. And they should be because there is a high level of suspicion that if they're going to be a target of attack, that you need somebody there in order to stop it. And better school lockdown procedure is obviously a shift to lock the outer doors, which didn't happen in this particular scenario. And yes, treating people who are mentally ill as though they are mentally ill, this person was clearly mentally ill this person was clearly unwell. All the red flags were there, but we had to treat it as though it's an act of heroism rather than maybe an indicator that this person isn't wholly well. It doesn't mean that every person who identifies as transgender is a potential school shooter God forbid that's obviously not true. Doesn't mean that everybody with gender dysphoria or gender identity disorder is potentially violent. That's obviously not true either. But to pretend that somebody who's exhibiting signs of abnormality is somehow perfectly normal and that there were no red flags I guarantee you, as time goes on, we're going to find out that there were a bevy of rad flags because there is yet to be a school shooting in which there were no red flags. It always turns out that there is a vast football field filled with red flags where everybody looked the other way. And you know it's a pretty good indicator that somebody might be having a problem. One great indicator that someone you might be having a problem, not a violent problem, just problems generally, grain indicator is when they say that they are a member of a sex to which they do not belong. That does not mean that they're going to be violent again for the third time and for the morons and media matters. It does mean that if we are looking at a subgroup of folks who are who are suffering from a mental illness and who ought to have a pair of eyes on them, more than the person who is in the control group, that's a symptom. That the fact that we are not supposed to say any of that is demonstrative of exactly the problem in American society. We do not take the problem of mental illness seriously in America. We just don't. We don't. We pretended away. And particularly when it falls along the lines of politically correct, truisms and sophistry. We just pretended away. It's really pathetic again. There's nobody out there who would argue that somebody who's suffering from schizophrenia shouldn't have an extra pair of eyes on them. There's nobody who's arguing that somebody who's suffering from anorexia, just for their own self and safety. She didn't have an extra pair of eyes on them. But when it comes to certain types of particular mental disorders, we're supposed to pretend that everything is hunky Dory. And then we're supposed to act surprised

"Also, if a trans person does violence against Christians, we're responsible for that too. I feel like it almost doesn't matter what happens. You just say the word responsible for the violence. Meanwhile, you have newsweek pushing a similar sort of story, newsweek had an entire tweet. It said, drag shows and gender affirming care for minors were banned in Tennessee this month. Well, assault weapons remain legal. This is the other alternative tank. The other alternative take is, why are you even focused on things like protecting children from LGBTQ indoctrination? Focus on the guns, man. The Jon Stewart take that we saw a couple of weeks ago, where he was asking Republican legislators. Why don't you banning guns if you're trying to protect kids? And it's like, well, maybe I don't think banning guns protects the kids. And also, I don't see why men dress as women should be gyrating sexually in front of children. And what that has to do with school shootings, precisely. But this is the going line as well, a hundred carabayo, who is a trans person, tweeted, thank God, Tennessee protected the children from so called horrors of dragon gender affirming care so they can be shot up at school by an AR-15 instead. Well, here's the thing. They weren't shut up. By just an AR-15 randomly, it is truly amazing how when the left does not wish to, for example, blame certain groups of people or certain ideologies for an idea. They just blame the instruments. So in a radical Muslim terrorist, it drives a car over a bunch of Israelis, then the car did it. And when a trans man shoots a bunch of Christian school children, the gun did it. The shift in narrative is absolutely clear and absolutely odious. Narrative number one, at the left has tried to promote is the pathetically stupid narrative that people who don't wish to see children mutilated or indoctrinated into a gender called. Our responsible for trans person shooting up a Christian school. That's narrative number one, which by the way, is actually a narrative that helps foment the ideological insanity that contributes to stuff like this. If you keep saying that there is an existential threat to trans people in the world when you just say that boys are boys and girls are girls. And then people take that. Seriously, and they go out and they say, okay, well, you know, I'm just going to attack anybody who says that. Except for all, I'm at existential threat. Then you're actually using this shooting as a, as a platform in order to push forward a narrative that actually makes similar events more likely statistically. That's insane. But the secondary narrative that the left always has, and these ones as guns, of course. So Joe Biden, yesterday. Our incoherent president, he came downstairs, and he began his press conference. He apparently

"And I think Tennessee has a red flag law and I don't think it worked. And so it didn't work again. It usually doesn't work, but it might stop some. We don't know. You can't prove a negative, right? It didn't happen. But Byron, I don't understand, but from the left and the right, I cut off a call this morning who wanted to argue we shouldn't be sending weapons to Ukraine while we're not protecting our schools. That's hobby horsing an issue. And I just, I don't think Americans buy this anymore. I think they just turn off people who impose agendas on stories. Yeah, and I think that you basically, your position as you would like to just see police at every school, right? Yeah, and my position is the Second Amendment isn't going anywhere. By all means introduce an amendment if you want to repeal it. But it's not going anywhere. We know what it meant. And it means there are a lot of guns in America and more than 300 million. We're not going to get I'm a realist about everything. And I don't have any time for constitutional amendments. Yeah, I think that the idea of police at every school is probably the best single idea you saw. The police in Nashville released video of the shooter actually shooting through Locke glass heavy glass doors. And of course the gun made quick work of all of the glass and she just walked in crawled in through the openings that were created. So locking locking something up is not doing the trick. And it appears, I know you were talking about the response to the police, national police tweeted out very quickly yesterday. That officers had immediately gone to the sound of the gunfire and then killed the shooter. And so if there's any response time issue, I guess we have to know how long between the moment the police arrived on the scene and actually killed the shooter, but it appears to be pretty quick. Yeah, I think it's 13 minutes from call.

"From the national library of medicine. This was published in the frontiers in psychiatry, circa 2022. And one of the things that it found, a rather crucial thing that it found, it was all about what is called violent radicalization, the possibility of different populations being subjected to violent radicalization. And what this study found is a direct quote transgender and gender diverse youth emerge as the group at the highest risk of support for violent radicalization. This is in line with results in recent survey conducted during the pandemic that highlighted high levels of support for violet radicalization as well as psychological distress among gender minorities. In other words, when you take a group of people who are very confused, and when you preach to them, that the solution to their confusion lies and things like gender transition. And then you teach them that people who refuse to accept that they are members of a sex to which they claim membership. And those people are threat to them. A violent threat to them, then it may be that you end up with more violent incidents. That may be in fact one of the things that results. And so this creates kind of a problem for the media because of course the media are complicit in precisely this narrative. If you're a person who doesn't believe that men can become women, women can't become men. If you don't believe the lie, the gender is completely fluid. If you don't believe the lie that sex and gender are disconnected, if you don't believe any of those things, the media will suggest that you are responsible for trans erasure, trans genocide, trans death, trans suicide. And so what you're doing in fighting a Christian school, which is part and parcel of this indoctrinated apparatus is something that is theoretically virtuous in this particular world. That's what a sick mind might say. And this was a sick mind because no one shoots children who is not particularly a sick mind. But the media are complicit in this particular narrative, which means they have to come up with an alternative narrative. And the alternative narrative is wait for it, wait for it. You got it right. Everybody who opposes the trans agenda is actually responsible for a trans person shooting up a Christian school. The media have an incentive to cover up the actual source of shootings like this one, which is why, for example, you don't remember, you literally do not recall the mass shooting that happened in Colorado in May 2019 at a school, this was airport from ABC 7, quote a teenager who told authorities he launched a fatal shooting attack on his suburban Denver school last year with a classmate because he wanted them to experience trauma, like he had experienced with sentenced on Friday to life in prison, plus 38 years with the possibility of pearl after two decades behind bars. The shooter apologized to the parents of Kendrick Castillo who was killed as he tackled one of the gunmen in the attack at stem school, Highlands Ranch, and to each of the other 8 students wounded in the attack as well as those traumatized by it. What exactly happened here? Well, this was a person who says that he was mocked because he was transgender. Quote, he wanted everyone in that school to suffer and realize the world is a bad place at an affidavit summing up his statements. But that shooting got memory hole because of course that doesn't fit the narrative, which is that victims supposed victims in American society can sometimes be horrible victimizers. Or perhaps you remember the club Q shooting. You remember that that shooter was shooting at a gay club and originally the entire legacy media apparatus decided that this was an act of Christian bigotry against a gay nightclub. In fact, it turns out that the shooter had a very dicey childhood that his mom identified as gender non binary and that the shooter in this particular case identified as gender non binary and used they them pronouns as well. That story disappeared from the headlines pretty quickly after that came out. That had to be memory hold. Okay, so a new narrative has to now be created about this particular shooting. If you can't memory hole, what exactly is going on? A quote unquote trans man shooting up a Christian school. You have to come up with a new narrative. The new narrative that is being promoted by some members of the media is that the people to blame truly are Tennessee Republicans. Tennis Republicans, we here at the daily wire, we are the people to blame, because after all, we are pushing the idea that you shouldn't trans the kids. That you shouldn't actually attempt to gender mutilate small children who are gender confused. You shouldn't give hormone treatments. You shouldn't shoot girls full of testosterone. It might be bad for them. You might not want to actually carve a fake human a fake flesh penis out of an arm. You might not want to do those things. If we say that, then apparently, we are somehow responsible for a trans person shooting up a Christian school. Yesterday, in one of the most insane clips of the day, ABC correspondent Terry Moran tried to blame tennis Republicans in Christians, apparently, for a shooting at a Christian school by a self identified trans person. The police confirming 6 dead three children, one 8 years old, two 9 years old. And three adults, including Catherine kunz, who was the head of the covenant school. The police chief also said that the shooter has been identified as 28 year old female, Audrey Hale. Such as a former student of the school and confirmed that audre hill was a identified herself as a transgender person. The state of Tennessee earlier this month passed in the governor signed a bill that banned transgender medical care for minors, as well as a law that prohibited adult entertainment, including male and female impersonators after a series of drag show controversies in that state. I was the drag show controversies you see, it's because of all the concerns about exposing children to perverse sexual material because of that, no, you can see why this sort of thing might have happened. We are now making excuses for people who shoot children is apparently the way this warrants. Now, it is the push to protect children on an ideological level from indoctrination into a gender called. That is now the excuse for shooting actual children. And so the logic boggles my, but I guess when you have a narrative to push and the narrative is that the right is always somehow responsible for a school shooting, even a school shooting in which a trans person murders a bunch of Christian kids, then you have to go with it. You have to go with it. That wasn't even the worst take of the day. The worst take of the day, Kim courtesy of Ben Ryan, who has been going after the daily wire with a rhetorical hatchet for weeks now, suggesting, of course, that the daily water basically runs Tennessee, which would that it were so, but that is not in fact the case. Ben Ryan tweeted out as an NBC reporter, quote NBC has i-d-ed the national school shooter as the person 28 by identifies as transgender and had no previous criminal record. Nashville is home to the daily wire, a hub of anti trans activity. By Matt Walsh blog, Ben Shapiro, and Michael J Knowles. So just to get this straight, if a person does violence against a trans person, and none of us have called for violence against the trans person, we are all responsible for that.

"Attack. Which means that by any by any sort of stretch of the imagination, what we are talking about here is a trans identified person shooting up a Christian school. That would be in a normal context of hate crime. If a Christian went to a very left wing school and shot up the school on the basis of trans students being there, that would be a hate crime, and the national news story got the evils of the right wing and the quote unquote anti trans ideology that they pushed. As we'll see the media are going to try and push that narrative anyway, even though the story is actually the reverse, this time a trans identified person shooting up a Christian school in murdering a bunch of very small school children. And one of the fascinating elements that emerged right after the shooting is the amount of quote unquote misgendering that happened in the media. So one of the things that we have been told by our mainstream media, our legacy media, is that you must never misgender ever under any circumstances. Misgendering is super bad. Misgendering is a practice whereby you speak the biological sex of a person as opposed to the sex to which they claim membership. So a trans man, if I say that a woman just shot up the school, which is exactly what happened, then you're not allowed to say that. This is apparently misgendering. It's discriminatory in some way. Been fascinatingly, the media engaged almost immediately in a bunch of quote unquote misgendering in this particular arena. So you saw, for example, The Daily Beast put out a headline specifically misgendering the shooter saying that it was a woman. You saw the Rolling Stones at a bunch of other publications. CNN suggested that a woman hit on a Daily Beast headline suggested that the CNN said the shooter, a 28 year old woman who was once a student at the school also killed three adults before responding officers killed her. Now, again, in any other context, we're supposed to pretend that men who said they are women are actually women. But the media were having a real tough time with this one. And the reason they were having a tough time with this one is because they don't want to acknowledge the narrative. If they actually go, there's something in Iraq and a hard place. If they properly biologically gender the person, the story is more accurate, but they have transgressed their own woke commandments. If, on the other hand, they do not do that. If in fact, they go with the transgender pronouns preferred by the shooter, then they are giving credence to the fact that a person who identified as trans and whose motivation likely had to do with that just shot up a bunch of school children and that cuts directly against the idea that victims can never be victimizers. And again, this is part and parcel of a broader left wing rubric, which is that if you're a member of the victim class, you can never call you a victimizer, even if you are shooting school children. The misgendering aspect of this is fascinating. So apparently, that strict rule of construct in terms of the left, that goes immediately out of by the way, so long as it does not serve the narrative later, of course, The New York Times would come back and then try to correct the record. The New York Times actually put out a tweet saying, there was confusion later on Monday about the gender identity of the assailants in the national shooting, officials had used she and herds referred to the suspect. According to the social media post and a LinkedIn profile appeared to identify as a man in recent months. So at least we cleared that up. At least we made sure that the trans shooter is granted the honor of identifying as a particular type of human being. The media have to construct some sort of narrative here. Now, normally, one of the things that would come up, what's the actual narrative here? Well, one thing that we certainly should discuss is the fact that when you create crisis narratives, as I said before, rhetoric, I don't tend to blame it rhetoric for actual violent activity on any side. When Donald Trump says stuff that's really heated up and then a deranged fan of Donald Trump goes and does something. I don't blame Donald Trump for that. When Barack Obama says something that really heats up the temperature. And then a Barack Obama follower goes and does something. I don't say Barack Obama's response. When a Bernie Sanders supporter shoots up a congressional baseball game, I don't say the Bernie Sanders is responsible for that. However, what everyone is responsible for are the words that come out of their mouth, and they're also responsible for the sort of doomsday scenario that leads vulnerable people to go and do deranged. The range person is still responsible for their own activities. However, when you keep raising the temperature, dangerously, this is going to have some predictable side effects. The pot is going to bubble over. You've seen this almost universal attempt across the west on nearly every issue to suggest that the apocalypse is upon us. And on the issue of people who have gendered dysphoria or gender identity disorder or who claim that they are a member of the opposite sex, they are told over and over and over, that they are on the verge of being genocided. This is just a thing that is said over and over and over in the transgender community and by legacy media. That people on the right are attempting to wipe them off the face of the earth there and literal genocidal danger. And this, of course, necessitates violence. It's sort of the same thing that Jonathan haidt and social psychologist from NYU said about microaggression ideas. When you keep telling people that they are being aggressed upon, that everything that happens to them, everything they are insulted by. It's a microaggression. They tend to react with macro aggression. And so if you keep telling people, over and over and over again, that they're about to be destroyed. They're about to be wiped off the face of the earth. Then you shouldn't be all that surprised when deranged people take that message and then go do horrific horrific things. And one of the things that Luke rosiek reporter over at daily ware was pointing out is that this is from March 6th, 2023, there was a call for a trans day of vengeance. Stop trans genocide, trans day of vengeance, April 1st, 11 a.m. in Washington D.C.. That was a group of transgender activists. And this sort of language is unfortunately not particularly rare. The national group's website for day of vengeance has like the stonewall riots, the gays and lesbians were experiencing what the trans community is facing now. The cycle of hate needs to end, in fact, it must. Allies siblings we need you now more than ever. I was a radical revolutionist and I still am a radical revolutionist. I'm glad I was in the stonewall wire. I remember when someone threw my mouth cocktail, I thought, my God, the revolution is here, the revolution is finally here. Sylvia Rivera. That's sort of language. Remember, the entire media was willing to blame Sarah Palin for the shooting of a congresswoman by a deranged nut based on a map that targeted a congressional district. That was not even close to a call for violence. But here you have people who legitimately are calling for days of vengeance and days of rage, and you have people who are assaulting other people at rallies in New Zealand. And the idea here is that this is all good and useful. By the way, it's worth noting at this point that there is a full study. Can you not?

"A mass shooter who identifies as a trans man, murders three children and three adults at a Christian school. The media struggled to ignore the facts of the story and focus instead on gun control. And a new Wall Street Journal survey shows that American values are in serious peril. I'm Ben Shapiro, this is Ben Shapiro show. Well, horrifying story out of Nashville, Tennessee, yesterday, a shooter who identified as a trans man, a 28 year old woman, biological woman, shot three students and three adults at covenant school in the green hills neighborhood of Nashville, it's a private Christian school in Nashville, Tennessee, according to The Wall Street Journal. Apparently, this person was a former student at the school on this show, we didn't actually name shooters because we believe the decades glory to shooters and gives them the attention. They so desperately seek. But the facts of the case are things that are highly relevant so we are going to be discussing many things about the shooter that are highly relevant, especially given the politicized environment in which these shootings happen, in which the media just decides to lie about the source of the shootings. So in this particular case, the national police spokesperson Don aarons had police received the call of an active shooter at covenant school ten 13 a.m. local time, the suspect had entered the school on the first floor and then proceeded to the lobby area on the second floor of firing multiple shots, apparently the shooter broke into the school, the doors were not locked. Erin said that officers responding to the scene discovered the shooting occurred on the school's second floor and quickly engaged the shooter the suspect was dead by ten 27 a.m., unlike in other cases, officers actually did hear the gunshots and charged the shooter. This immediately turned into a battle over narrative, which is what happens with every mass shooting in the United States, the left immediately jumps to a series of narratives rooted in sort of left wing storytelling. And this happens with every single mass shooting. You can tell before the shooting even happened. If the victims of a shooting are act. And if the shooter is Y here's what the narrative will be. If you have a mass shooting in the United States in which the shooter is white and the victim is black, then the narrative is going to be about both guns and racism. If you have a mass shooting in which the shooter is black and the victim is white, it's going to be out guns and systemic racism and dispossession. If the shooter is Muslim, and the victim is gay, then it's going to be about Christian bigotry, which is exactly what happened in the Orlando pulse nightclub shooting. If the shooter is Asian and the victims are white, as happened at Virginia tech, then we're going to be talking about gun control. If the shooter is trans and the victim is gay, as we will discuss in a moment, we're going to be talking about guns and maybe about the virulent suppression of trans people in the United States. If the shooter is trans and the victims are Christian, then it's going to be about guns and about Christian bigotry, which is the narrative that the media are taking away from this particular shooting, which is absolutely insane. Because again, the details that have emerged suggest that the shooter, a former student, identified as a trans man. Apparently this person also left a manifesto. Here is the national police chief confirming that the shooter was in fact a trans man meaning a biological woman and saying that there is a manifesto that sort of speaks to the politics of the shooting.

"Around the clock prayer services that have lingered for over a week at a little university in Kentucky have drawn worldwide attention. People from all over the country are flocking to asbury university in wilmore, Kentucky. They have been students there have been engaged in a continual worship service in the school's chapel since February 8th. Now, last Wednesday, they had a worship service there, and the students just stayed. They just kept praying. They kept singing. They kept doing testimonies and alter calls, and people finding their way to the lord. The services have since grown to pack the school's chapel with worshippers from all over the country. According to Christianity today, they quote an associate professor, it's praise and worship, honestly. Nobody's snake handling is just praise and worship that's going 24/7. Now the left is going to hate this. They're going to criticize it. Let them let them, this was a student led revival and that's the word here. That it should be used. This is a spirit. This is a revival. This is watching a place that I don't even know where wilmore, Kentucky is. I'd like to go. In fact, I'm really itching to go. I think I may go. I may go early next week.

"To my school, which is a really big deal at the time because I went to a predominantly white Christian school. So there was like three of us in each grade. And we were all in different classes. Like that's just what it was, right? And so here it is this black kid that's coming to a predominantly white Christian school and putting out in the field out in the world that there are black people still being enslaved by white people in Africa. And so we were able to raise awareness from our church from our school. And you know, they were able to go out and free as many people as they could. So those are some of the things that I was doing as a kid where I saw that there was a need. I saw that people were hurting. I even had a ministry in the church where I would give out cards. So like children where their grandparents were sick or their parents were sick or they weren't feeling well, they would sign up. I will send a card to whoever was sick. Or if somebody was having a child in time processing that their grandparents were sick or whatever, they would come and they would cry on my shoulder. Mind you, I'm young. Young, but I'm panel is very well. So I've always, I guess, had that empathy that compassion for people and always just trying to find ways of, I came into a really loving family, like my parents are very supportive from day one. They've always showed me nothing but tender love and care. And I grew up in a family where we were just all about loving each other and respecting each other. So how can I give what I was fortunate to get to people that never had it? And so that's kind of how I've envisioned or have been navigating life since I was a kid.

Larger percentage of our students are involved in athletics and other extracurricular activities We're able because of our class is to take some trips every year except for last year because of covid every year our seniors go to florida as a senior trip at the end of the year. Disneyworld so we're able to offer some things because we're smaller That the some larger schools can offer disparate logistic logistical reasons Also smaller class allows you to develop more intimate relationships with your hands of things like that. You mentioned kovin and an educator in particular you guys have had to go through a lot a lot of pivoting our word of twenty twenty As you look toward twenty twenty two a lot of still in flux but as from an education perspective of talking to parents.

Obviously businesses are members. And we've got a lot of nonprofits that are member soup but also the schools the schools that are interested in kind of connecting with his business communities There's different reasons at school would join but one of the interesting reasons that this school joins was because they needed a discount on their health. Insurance and Since they could join a chamber member they were able to do that. So we're going to be talking to calvary christian school in see about all the cool stuff that they have their what they've got going on and Why it's bracing for an enrollment increase next year.

And if they're not here yet they're gonna be coded. Were hoping is on the way. That is the plant so you know that the latest kind of crop of of available vaccines or people available to get the vaccines were the ages. Twelve to fifteen year old crew and they In the first week that they were allowed to have vaccine more than seven percent were vaccinated. That's a lot especially when you consider her like i did. We had to work around end of your schedules and after school. He didn't want to take out his cool for that sort of thing. All of those things. So i would imagine that number in the next two weeks is going to go up. Dramatically and by the way experts are saying if your kids are in summer sports or summer camps. This is a big big deal To try to get vaccinated if he can and So a lot of stuff is being relaxed. I don't know if you've been anywhere lately but masks. Are you know. They're on the way out as well. So fully vaccinated people can now go without masks except for certain situations. We talked about cdt. That is a department of transportation situation of federal decisions. Got to have it there. An on the plane itself but buses those sorts of things childcare preschool k. Through twelve now requires masks. We'll see what happens in the fall. Healthcare facilities of course in long term care facilities and then also individual businesses may request them. So just keep that in mind to keep a with you. You don't wear it everywhere and just keep in mind the for the fully vaccinated now for the half backs as they say And then the other part of it is this When we talk about capacity governor bashir has said there's two dates to remember may twenty-eighth coming up in just a few days in june eleventh right so may twenty eight Businesses and events can raise their capacity to seventy five percent indoors out june eleventh.
