Army sergeant who fatally shot BLM protester in Texas sentenced to 25 years as governor seeks pardon
"An Uber driver who shot another armed white man in a Texas protest has received a lengthy sentence in a case that drew the attention of the Texas governor. This court census you to a term of 25 years in the Texas department of criminal justice. In Austin, Texas district judge Clifford Brown handed down the sentence Wednesday to Daniel Perry. Perry is white U.S. Army sergeant, serving at fort hood.

"You're singing my song cliff. This is what I talk about wherever I go. It is absolutely despicable and shameful. And there are many Christian leaders who are being silent in the face of evil and God will and is judging them now if they don't repent of their silence in the face of evil because the things that you've just begun to mention, these are evil things. They're not bad, so not difference of opinion. There are terrible things happening. There are evil things that are happening. And the silence of Christian leaders in the face of this is just astonishing the parallels to Germany in the 30s are unmistakable. Every single day I notice it more. And I just, I can't believe it. But I have hope that because of the horror unfolding, people are individually waking up. People are leaving the dead useless churches that are being silent in the face of evil and finding places. So that to me is the hope. We've got a final segment coming up. I'm talking folks to Clifford Nichols, he's got a piece of the American thinker is 2024 only in mirage, and you can find him at the American landscape dot substack dot com. We'll be right back. Welcome back. I'm talking to Clifford Nichols and we've been talking about the declaration of liberty, which is really kind of an updating of the Declaration of Independence. This doesn't mean that the Declaration of Independence no longer holds, it's that what if we read the Declaration of Independence and we say, this sounds familiar, let's write up something similar to declare where we are and what we propose to do about it. Is that fair Clifford? Nichols affair synopsis and I would suggest that going forward, patriotic Americans might want to use the litmus test of the declaration of liberty and have their pastors read it. And ask them if they would sign it. And if they would not sign it, ask if you're going to the right church. You will find it set off in a prologue. A foundation, it is list the rights we have, it lists the grievances, and it lists the solutions, and these are simple things. Give us our children back, give us our borders back. Give us our elections back. Give us back the rule of law in our constitutional rights. And if that becomes illegal, you and I have got bigger problems. But can we imagine the cowardice of pastures unwilling to speak out on these kinds of things? We know that it happened in Germany, but in Germany, they didn't have the example of Germany. They were going through this the first time. We have the example of how this went down in Germany. I actually say the same thing with regard to my book letter to the American church. I say, folks, give this book to your pastor. Ask him to read it, ask him if he's willing to go along with it. If he's not, get out of that church, don't spend one thin dime ever again, supporting a ministry that puts its head in the sand when liberty is at stake because when liberty is at stake, everything is at stake. We could end up like North Korea. We could end up like China. We are swiftly moving the direction of ending up like China, where we have no religious liberty. And no religious liberty is much worse than merely not having religious liberty. It leads to the death of every other kind of liberty. It leads to the enslavement of American citizens. That's what we're talking about. That's what tyranny is. And so I say, I say this to people that if you're not prepared to leave your church immediately if you want to give your pasture a chance to reconsider. And because there are many good men who haven't thought this through, they haven't heard what you're saying or what I'm saying. They haven't processed this. They need at least to be given the chance to process these things. But if they refuse, if they say I'm not willing to risk it, I insist on being a coward, although they wouldn't describe it that way. Then I think people are obliged to leave those churches. Well, and as you well know, most of what is egregious about the current church is not so much what is said, but what is not said, and your book led her to American church, I read it, it is excellent. Have your pastor read it, but then do the second punch and say, now that you've read it, would you mind reading this declaration of liberty and signing it so that we know that you're standing with us? That's right. And if they do that, they read your book and they sign the declaration of liberty here in the right church if they won't. Find another. Those churches exist folks because they invite me to speak and I meet these wonderful pastors. But most churches, they are not interested in fighting for the things that we need to fight for. And that is really unacceptable. And if you support them, you've become part of the problem. Clifford, Nichols, we will have you back. Thank you for your time today. Folks, go to the American landscape dot sub stack dot com, get the declaration of liberty. Clifford, thank you..
Clifford Nichols and Eric Discuss the Declaration of Liberty

"Go ahead. There's another, are we going to return to a system of justice? Where if somebody commits treason? They are indicted, prosecuted, given a hearing with due process, unlike some in the January 6th situation, and let the consequences follow us at hey, if they're guilty of treason, which some are, in my opinion, let them be executed, which the constitution calls for. Was Jefferson Davis executed? No. I don't believe he was. Yeah, I think we just need to win. To execute them, I just think removing them. In any event, that's a separate conversation. The point is, by what means will we achieve the ends of taking back the government? You do believe, I guess, that Trump now understands what undid his first term and what prevented him from having a second term and that he would be willing to go to war with that that he understands what is at stake and that he wouldn't play patty cake with the devil and hire people like those he hired in the first term. Especially in light of the fact that they have total disregard for our election process. So if we are hoping for a fair election in 2024, it's a pipe dream. That is my thought. And if that's a pipe dream, he will never be reelected, no matter how many votes he gets. Okay, so what do we do about that? Well, therein lies the issue that this country is now placed faced with. It's very interesting. As I observe it, I don't see anything short of a conference with the military and saying, where do you stand? Where do you stand? And I think that would be a legitimate question to ask. Who would be calling this conference with the military? And with what members of the military, I think the military is probably I would say it would be president Trump. Would have to have that conversation at some point. It is problem is that they would love nothing more than to arrest him for insurrection for even attempting it. Right. So it's a catch what he do, which way do we jump? I don't know. And I'm interested to see how others play this out. Because it is where we've been brought. As a country, I think most people are still asleep and they don't care or they're somehow fatally resigned to it. So the question is, if there are enough of us who do care to do something about it, and then of course what that means. But it's obvious that the mainstream media has sold its soul that the medical establishment has sold its soul that many in government have sold their souls. They don't really buy in to the American vision anymore. So that's the question is, how many of us do any of our churches? Well, the church is that's number one. I don't know if you know, but I wrote a book called letter to the American church dealing precisely with this issue. The churches in my mind are actually the most guilty because as I say in letter to the American church, Dietrich bonhoeffer said the church is the conscience of the state. And if the churches aren't speaking about this, that to me is the key. So I'm glad you brought that up. Well, if the churches don't start standing up to males competing in women's sports, vocally from the pulpit, mutilating our children, opening our borders, but they're afraid to do that for their tax consequences, under viral..

"Well, I was glad to hear that general milley announced his retirement this morning. In other words, he's getting out of town. Before it shakes up, I would think. And what do you mean before chinks out? So you think there's going to be that this will be an issue? I think there's going to be more between now and 2024 that puts the question to the American people. How much further are we going to be pushed? I think you're right. The question, I mean, this is what I'm fascinated by in talking to you is how can this play out? Because you're right, if criminals are taking over, doing the things that most people listen to this program are aware of. It's scandalous. It's criminal. It's wrong. It's un American. It's anti American. The question is what recourse do we have? You're suggesting that there are elements in the military who might be on the side of actual Americans? Well, I would certainly hope so. If they have enough information to participate, we know they exist. The question is at what level do they exist? I know that the rank and file FBI and the rank and file military are pro American, but the leaders, when you talk about people like general milley and other profoundly foolish anti American figures, that's the question. Well, and I don't mean to come across as an intentional insurrectionist. I mean to come across as more an observer of events, I look at I don't know if you've seen it on telegram going around is a letter supposedly sent by this mister Moshe to president Trump. To seek asylum in Russia because his, this is the merchant of death that we released in exchange for that basketball player. Do you remember him? Yeah. The merchant of death wrote president Trump according to some. It is reported. Suggesting he seek asylum in Russia. Okay, let me just conclude this segment by saying that strikes me as utterly preposterous and kind of stupid, but we'll be right back. Here with me home tonight here. Singing songs about software I miss all my new ones. Folks, welcome back, I'm talking to Clifford Nichols, his book is a barrister's tales, one lawyer's memoirs of his journey toward faith along a trail called life, but we're talking today about current events. You just suggested that the merchant of death, some guy that we traded for the woke female basketball player who was trapped in Russia that he that this guy sent a letter to president Trump. Why do we care about that? Like anybody can tell informing in this letter he was informing president Trump allegedly that president Trump is scheduled to be assassinated. Well, who would doubt that? I mean, who would doubt that they would love to kill Trump? I mean, I am of the opinion that they, this is, you know, gets kind of creepy, but they killed JFK, and that that is that's a thing. It's a real thing. And so I have no problem with that. But it seems to me that unfortunately the Patriots are in a position where they desperately need president Trump at this point. Because he is the lightning rod for their heat, but also for his leadership. And his seeing the issues, one of the things that is going to come across for sure if he ever did retake The White House is a cleansing of the bureaucracy of those when he issues orders negate it down the way. And he will cleanse out. The starting with probably Christopher wray and Merrick Garland will be out so fast that they'll only be fired, not hanged publicly, I guess..

"He's the author of a book a barrister's tales, which we will discuss at some point, but right now we're talking about current events, Clifford, you have this piece in American thinker is 2024 only a mirage. You're asking the question and it's an important question. Will we be able to take our country back? Because obviously the left, I said this and you said this, they're behaving like criminals. In other words, if we play by the rules of American law, then it's possible for us to take the country back. But they aren't playing by the rules, we don't really have. We don't have a fair judicial system. It's a really horrifying moment that we're here. Well, as Victor David Hansen pointed out, we are in the midst of our own French Revolution. Jacobin wrote revolution. Right. And the people in charge are the ones that set the laws and the boundaries. What is lawful and what they're not. The elephant in the room is I wanted to mention is the military that is sworn to defend the constitution. Against foreign and domestic insurrection. And the question is, no matter what you and I do, no matter what anybody does. If the military is not on your side, you will lose. And that's a question I took up in an interview a year and a half ago. And the interviewer said that the size of my tinfoil hat was enormous and in fact, when I went back to his records, he had deleted the entire segment of his show in which I was interviewed because I said that. Because he was frightened, people are very frightened because they hear the truth. They are I mean, what you said, I mean, the whole point obviously we're supposed to be able to have a well ordered militia. We're supposed to be able to have a militia. We're supposed to have. We have a Second Amendment so that the military, some rogues, can't just take over the country. So I'm not sure. I'm not sure that no matter how well armed, even if you're as well armed as Kid Rock, I don't think that's going to help you. If you're coming up against the United States military and so my question is, for president Trump, you have the alliance of the military if they go to drastic measures to remove you. From the 2024 elections. I don't ask that in my article, but it's the obvious question. Does he have an alliance with a system that will allow them? I have no idea. Can maybe you can answer that question. I think president Trump can answer that. And you know, I would think that general Flynn would be able to help him in that. Well, I guess the question is, who is the military? Because when you're talking about people like general milley, general milley, who is extraordinarily silly and malevolent and just deeply foolish, the idea that he is a general at this point and that he speaks oftentimes for the military and that you have other woke deluded men like that in our military. It really says everything you need to know, something has gone deeply deeply wrong in the U.S. Military at this point..
Clifford Nichols Discusses His New Article, “Is 2024 Only a Mirage?”
"You have this piece in American thinker is 2024 only a mirage. You're asking the question and it's an important question. Will we be able to take our country back?

Eric and Clifford Nichols Unpack America's Untenable Situation
"Find ourselves today in America in an untenable situation. We find ourselves subject to the tyrannous behavior of what is technically our own government. It's unacceptable. We've got to do something about it. The question is what to do. But the parallels, I mean, not only because of my familiarity with Germany in the 30s because I wrote my book bahnhof, but I think that it bears saying that people, even before Hitler officially took power in 33, people like the great Dietrich von Hildebrand, the Catholic philosopher and hero, he knew that the people taking Germany over were criminals. They were genuinely criminals. Many people didn't get that at first. Eventually a lot of the people that didn't get it did get it, but by then it was too late the nation had been taken over by criminals. That's effectively what is happening right now. When they talk about taking Trump out by any means necessary, they have abrogated the rule of law. It's obvious from the way they are behaving. The question cliff is, what do we do about it? And one is to get unified, we have a lot of different issues, we have people protesting school boards, state legislators, it's fractal. It's rationalized. And if you have a unified platform, that is a statement that Thomas Jefferson used the Declaration of Independence for to state to the world here are the grievances and here are the solutions. Okay, but obviously cliff. Jefferson was not some rogue guy. Jefferson was a group part of a larger group who had authority who were leaders, not just in a movement, but many of whom were leaders in the colonial government at the time. It seems to me have a parallel to that.

Is Susan Rice Running the Show at The White House?
"Now I have general Michael Flynn on you just said Susan Rice is running things at The White House and the Biden administration today. She was not elected. It's not elect to choose the national security adviser for Homeland Security. I can tell you that nothing comes out of The White House unless she puts her stamp on it. And so you wonder, and she's not really, you know, she'll say she's working for the president and the vice president, but not really. These are people that are working. There's an apparatus above The White House that's sort of running the show right now. And this is this unconstitutional. You need to say that. This is unconstitutional. This is criminal. And that is what is happening right now. And it's so extraordinary and so corrupt, but yet it's happening. And I want the American people I want your audience to understand that this is not a conspiracy theory that this is real. Our country is going in the wrong direction. So part of this is that there is also there's also this infiltration going on in our country, okay? And I can go into a lot on that, but the main infiltrator is China. Is the Chinese Communist Party. And they've been infiltrating into our into our society for decades and through various institutions through the institution of government institution of education, institution of business and our economy. And that's been happening for at least 30 to 40. And this is a long-term plan. Take America down as the leading power in the world. They've been working on a decades and here we are.
Trump's Indictment Is One Absurdity on Top of Another
"Debbie and I last night watched Trump's speech. And I noticed my mood as the day was going on was shifting. Initially, I just felt just sad, not just for Trump but for the country, a little disgusted, outraged, and then as the day went on, I found myself becoming amused and even exhilarated the as I began to see that the 34 felonies are not really 34 felonies. In fact, they're not felonies. I don't think at all as I'm I'll explain, but they're 34 business entries and the business entries are so routine as to be almost comical. Apparently these are communications and payments from Michael Cohen, not from Trump, but Michael Cohen to Stephanie Clifford also known as stormy Daniels. And this is literally with the kind of stuff you have. Counts one through four, February 14th, 2017. Counts 5 through 7, march 17th, 2017, count 8, April 13th to June 1920 17, apparently Michael Cohen was making these payments one by one month here a month there with a couple of months in between. And each of these is now elevated to a felony count. It's the same thing over and over the same payment. It's almost like if Michael Cohen had written one check, $130,000, there'd be only one count in the felony. Now, when I say that this is an event with broad implications, here's a hint of what I mean. Here is the president of El Salvador and he's speaking for a lot of people around the world. In fact, I've seen Indian leaders make similar comments, this is El Salvador president bukele. Quote, think what you want about former president Trump and the reasons he's being indicted, but just imagine if this happened in any other country where a government arrested the main opposition candidate. The United States ability to use democracy as foreign policy is gone.

"That's sort of thing. And so thank you. Well, you're very kind. And again, I think you're right when you say, first of all, I would say, do we deserve God to pull us out of this death spiral? Absolutely not. But we serve immersive God. And if enough people will pray and act and exhort others to do the same with God, all things are possible. I think to cease to fight, to cease to pray, to cease to advocate for the poor and for all of the people that are suffering as a result of these demonic policies being pushed forward, not just by the Marxist leftists in the Democratic Party, but the useless deep state rhinos who are addicted to power, shame on them. Despite, I mean, we're supposed to advocate strongly and do everything we can possibly do. And the results are in God's hands. But when somebody says, don't fight, it's over. God has already judged America. That is also the voice of the devil. We are to do everything we can. And how God does things. I mean, it would have been very logical, very logical for George Washington and the American army to give up a number of times they didn't. You know, that's where your book stops. And the next chapter should have been American needs of George Washington. We've had our Thomas jeffersons. We've entered Samuel Adams, we need the guy that's going to cross the Delaware. With purpose. And that's what everybody's looking to president Trump for, frankly. Well, look, it's why I believe if God has mercy on this country, Trump will have a second term and that's my genuine hope. We're out of time when we come back. We will be. Well, I was just going to say we're out of time, but next time we have you back, I want to talk to you about your book, a barrister's tales, I've been talking to Clifford Nichols Clifford God bless you, thank you so much. Thank you, visit my substack. At the American landscape dot substack dot com. For an ongoing discussion, thank you..

"The question is, as a Christian reading it, you need to read write part two. And that is, what are my marching orders? Where would you have me go? What would you have me do? That the German church did not do. Well, yeah, as I say, the first thing when people ask me that question, and by the way, ladies and gentlemen, we weren't going to be talking about my book. We've just kind of veered into this, but the first thing I say to people is, and I say this really bluntly, if you're past or the leadership in your church is not persuaded to take what I say in my book letter to the American church seriously, if you try because I think it would be nice to try to see if you can get them to see this. If they refuse to see it, get out of that church. Do not fund that church. Make them understand that they are when you're in a war with evil. And you say, oh, you know, I'm going to sit this one out. God's going to judge you for that. And you at least are going to lose those people who take this seriously. Make sure you're one of the people who takes this seriously and gets out of there and finds a church where they take it seriously, even if you just have a home group and you're watching the sermons of one of the many passages that I mentioned on this program who do take this seriously. But that's the first thing when we come back, we'll talk more talking to Clifford Nichols, his book is a barrister's tales. Folks, welcome back, conversation is veered out of control. We meant to be talking about a Clifford Nichols book, a barrister's tales. And Clifford, we will have you back very soon to talk about the book because it's fascinating. But let's continue. Let me say I'm honored to have you discussing your book with me. And thank you. Well, I mean, it's a funny thing. I don't write books just to write books. And I felt this burning passion from God that I had to say these things because I know there are people who can be reached. And I know that the sales of the book are telling a story that there are people who are saying yes, this is what's going on. This is what I have discerned myself, but there's still plenty churches they're playing church. They're playing church and they don't understand what is at stake. They have some kind of vague idea that the only thing that matters is quote unquote evangelism. We don't need to talk about the issues of profound corruption. Jesus talked about corruption and evil and he called it out, that's part of what we're supposed to be doing if we have faith. He did watch his own people not listen to his admonitions. Who paid a price? And I'm suggesting that we are at that tipping point. As to whether or not we're going to set aside our idols and follow him or not. Well, that's I think that's the question. Yeah. Before leaving this morning, my wife had an appointment out of the house. She said to be sure and tell you to thank you for the boldness of writing this book. And we and this book out to people in our church and ask them to read it to get a different perspective on what we're about when we congregate. As much as I tell the secular, please watch the chosen. Get a different view on Jesus..

We haven't been talking about your book. We're talking about other things. We've got to have you back to talk about the book, because there's great stuff. It might be honored. In this book, and of course, a bear just tells can be found wherever fine books are sold, which is, you know, I believe on the Internet is one place you might Amazon and noble. Yeah, you hardly need to say that. That's like saying, what can I get this food? The grocery store. Thank you very much. Okay. So let's keep talking about what we're talking about. What do you think is going to happen in the weeks and months ahead? What do you think is going to happen with president Trump? I am not entirely convinced that this country is worthy of God's redemption. Let me go out on the limb and say that. Unless something massive within the church to cause a redemption happens, and it's like because this country has let the toothpaste of decadence escape the duke. And we are now in a position of having to try to put it back. In the tube, I'm talking about gender mutilation. We're there. Mutilating the bodies of our children. Teaching them that they can choose a gender, doing twerking in the school library, pornography. All of these things that have become systematized, how do you go back unless you take the position that God is not and heaven is not a constitutional republic. Subject to democratic principles and as much as you don't get to vote on what God thinks and if God does condemn certain actions, I don't hear the church speaking up about that. Well, again, that's why I wrote my book letter to the American church because I am really, really sickened by the silence of the church because, again, the parallels to the silence of the church in Germany are astonishing. I mean, folks, if you read my book letter to the American church, it's not an emotional book. I try to make as bloodless and rational a case for what is the biblical role of the church. How the Germans got that wrong and how good people got it wrong. And I'm not talking about, you know, wicked pro woke Marxist nuts in the church because of course they're there. But I'm talking about good people that maybe they don't want to go to war at war. They don't want to go to war with the woke nuts. They kind of just want to go along to get along. And so they're being silent. And they're saying, well, we're not going to, we're not going to choose. When you don't choose, you have chosen. Silence in the face of evil is itself evil. And so it seems to me that God is trying to wake us up. When you just described, you know, the moral decadence believe me, Clifford, a lot of people are waking up because of that. In other words, you look around and you say, you know what? I was just kind of floating along. What is going on, you know, drag queen story hour, a transgender lunacy, everywhere I look, open borders, what? Defund the police. In other words, this is madness. Most Americans, I'm convinced, know that this is madness, but they're looking around for people to talk about it and they're being told no, no, don't talk about it. And if you go to some mega church where they don't talk about it, this message is being reinforced, keep quiet. This is not our, this is not our business. It's not our affair. We're going to stay in our little theological lane. That message is from the pit of hell, ladies and gentlemen. And the first thing I say when people say, what can I do? Get out of that church and don't ever give them a penny because they are playing church. And they are, listen, they are serving the devil. They may not know it, but the idea that you would not see that we're in an ideological and spiritual war and understand that God has given us a job to do no less than he gave the German church a job to do in the 1930s and they did not do it. And judgment came and it is so grievous when we look back at what happened. Because they were as arrogant or as complacent, they were convinced this could never, Germany will always will always be fine. They had no idea that their silence in the face of evil would bring about hell on earth for millions and millions of people. And it's the same kind of arrogance and complacency in the American church today. So I wrote my book hoping that some pastors and I know that they're out there. Good guys that are getting it wrong, that they would say, you know what? I have been guilty of this. I need to repent, I need to take a stand. I need to get my people to take a stand. Those churches, by the way, that are taking these kinds of stands are growing like crazy. It's a fact when they invite me to preach, I hear it every time our church has doubled and tripled, and we have to start new services. We're building a new parking lot. And the churches that are being silent on this are really struggling. And that's as it should be. That's a sifting that's been going on. So I have to also shift into there's a shifting going on as well, and I'm witnessing to those churches that are politically correct. Or been towards the work. And they don't like to hear the things that they've been taught. They're supposed to like the LGBTQ, the agenda there, the abortion agenda. If you're not, if you're preaching God's word, sometimes that's harsh. And people don't want to hear it and they migrate. To where it tickles their ears as it were. Well, your book is logically driven. And I say that as a lawyer. You should have been away. Your arguments are laid out well and they're great..

"I think JFK and RFK saw this, but I want to be real clear speaking as a Christian, I think apart from God, there is no hope. In other words, if God is with us in this, then we can restore America to the constitutional republic, we were founded as, but if we, if one tries to do it in one's own strength as to some extent, JFK and our K did, you know, going against Hoover and on and on and on, you can see the problem, but your powerless against it, which is why I believe revival is at the heart of it, Christian faith is at the heart of it. Because we're talking about things that are ultimately diabolical. We're dealing with evil, an evil agglomeration of power, concentration of power that is frightening, and you're quite right, that it is, it is everywhere. When you have a weaponized FBI, I thought in the United States of America, the idea that the FBI would send 40 agents to terrorize Roger Stone and a Brandon straw. How about 40 agents to terrorize the president? Well, it is so evil and so I think there are Americans that are waking up that are thinking what? What is going on here? And so we have a lot of work to do, but by God's grace, I believe we can do it. But first and foremost, and we'll go to a break here. But first and foremost, folks, the reason I wrote letter to the American church is because I believe it is the job of the church first and foremost in the words of Bonham to be the conscience of the state to fearlessly stand against corruption against evil against policies that are crushing the poor, crushing the middle class..

"Life. We're going to get to that, but we're talking about some other stuff. So let's keep talking about the other stuff Clifford Nichols. You were just making a few points. In the course of the next year, whether or not something could be done pursuant to the suggestions of even president Trump, that something must be done to stop the destruction of this country. Let me talk about president Trump for a second. And why he is important to me in so far as the future of this country. He has experienced things a persecution. I've never witnessed. And with a smile on his face. One of the mistakes that he did in his first term was bringing people on board that were ill advised. And I would suggest a couple of those preeminent is Bill Barr and Christopher wray. Who the second he's out of office come out of the closet as absolutely against him. And the next time around, you know, I would consider not only not hiring such people, it's like hiring crocodiles to get rid of the alligators in the swamp. Oh, listen, you have to understand Donald Trump and you know this. He had never been president before. He'd never been a politician before, so he was trying and really almost a winsome way to bring people in not to be particularly divisive. And so he brought people in whom he later discovered were his enemies and more importantly were the enemies of we the people who elected him, who are, you know, the deep state elites who couldn't care less about what the jughead's and flyover country vote for. They have been running things in their way. He ran afoul of them. He definitely didn't see it coming, didn't know. And you know, you could go on and on, but you're quite right. If he gets a second term, which I believe he will, it seems to me that the first thing he has to know by now is whom to bring in and whom to keep out forever. Also to look below the surface and ask, who recommended those men to be hired? What was the resources he was accessing to get the recommendations to fill the void of his inexperience as a politician and because somebody recommended after Comey was retired fortunately, somebody recommended Christopher wray. Yeah. And somebody recommended Bill Barr. And who are who's doing those recommendations? Is the layer that needs to be examined? Because, you know, I recently watched an interview on apac times with David Hansen. Okay. And he said that that Victor Davis Hanson, Victor Davis Hanson. Yeah. The problem is that the corruption is becoming ingrained systemically. At the G within the G levels of the government, such that you have. Miss Yates who can veto a presidential order, the president can order and somewhere in the bowels of the bureaucracy. It will be derailed. That is a president Trump who has lived it. Knows it and sees it. Unlike any politician who grew up even in Washington, D.C., and I think we'll deal with it this time around to achieve much more purpose than he did the first time, which was tremendous the first time. Well, it's interesting..

"It opened the door to such evil things. And there's so many today that would say, oh, that can't happen here. That's exactly what the Germans were saying. That can't happen here. Not in Germany, not in the land of Luther and Goethe. No, that can't happen here. So it just meant a lot to me that you wrote about my book and show that it can not happen here and yet we still have the January 6th people that are being held in custody because they attended or entered a capitol building and it turns out as the tapes are being revealed at the invite of the FBI. Oh no, it is so wicked. People are waking up to this, but there are tons of people like, you know, people that I would have considered friends. I don't know if it's Mike Pence or Mike Pompeo or just tons of people that still earnestly believe this mainstream media deep state narrative. They actually believe many Christians still do. And many Christians still, they are still believing what is a lie and not just a lie, but a deeply pernicious anti American lie. And if we don't speak up about it, whether you're a Christian or aren't, if you don't care about the truth, if you're not beginning to read the tea leaves and say, hey, hey, wait a second. We have bought. Something a bill of goods that is not right. Something isn't right. It's fishy. The information is coming out. I mean, that's the good news, Clifford Nichols, is that the information slowly is coming out and there are people that are saying, wait a minute, we didn't get the full story. But a lot of major players, especially in churches, they don't want to go near this stuff. Well, and they should be. You know, a lot of the questions is limited by the 501c3 concept. Everybody says that we talk politics. We lose our taxes and I would point out that church did fairly well for 2000 years before 501c3 was ever invented. By one one C three enables people sometimes to buy learjets, they might not want to. In the course of their ministry, but if that's the only thing limiting, you have to make a choice. Is it your tax exemption or is it your freedom, your liberty? And I remember attending one church in Santa Monica, the morning, the Sunday after president Trump was elected. And I walked in and it was awake. Literally awake. Because Hillary had lost. And it was a lack of speaking from the pulpit. And letting people know that God would probably find somebody who advocates late term abortions. And that sort of thing is not his choice. Wouldn't speak about it. And so the congregation was assuming that Hillary was a viable option. That's the nightmare to me, is that there's so many so called Christians who don't understand what was at stake. What is at stake now? And that's part of why I wrote my book, and it's part of what you're writing about at town hall. We have to there are a lot of people that have been asleep, and I think some of them are waking up, but they're still many yet to be awakened. My question then is if they were awakened because I wrote an article last year that had to do with the remnant within the church needs to start praying that people start bringing. And requesting churches to come out and say, let's start praying that people that there is a revival. Then we see this survival happening often is a Kentucky. What started there, yeah? And now it's caring forward. Where's the church encouraging that? Where's the church other than saying, well, hey, listen, we got to get back to our hours. And get back to class schedule. The whole experience had enough time here. Let's move on. I'm very concerned because I would like to write an article. Telling questions, what they might do with respect to say, January 6th people. Well, why don't you? I would love you to do that. I'd love to have you back to talk about it. Well, what can Christians do? That's what I'm here to discuss with you because I look at you as the preeminent authority. And let me say this, you say we're not insurrectionists, but we've already been defined as that. In the red wall speech. Yeah, yeah. Listen, it's so despicable that it's difficult for me, and I understand it's difficult for many of us to process. It's so despicable. Joe Biden and the people in power falsely, as far as I'm concerned, have said things as un American and as the despicable and diabolical, it is so ugly. And it's hard for people to process that. We'll be back. We're talking to Clifford Nichols, his book is a barristers tales. Tell me why relief factor is so successful at lowering or eliminating pain. I'm often asked that question just the other night I was asked that question, well, the owners of relief factor tell me they believe our bodies were designed to heal. That's right, designed to heal, and I agree with them. And the doctors who formulated relief factor for them selected the four best ingredients, yes, 100% drug free ingredients, and each one of them helps your body deal with inflammation. Each of the four ingredients deals with inflammation from a different metabolic pathway. That's the point. So approaching from four different angles may be why so many people find such wonderful relief. If you've got back pain, shoulder, neck, hip, knee, or foot pain from exercise or just getting older, you should order the three week quick start discounted to only 1995 to see if it'll work for you..

"But it left me asking, okay, what is it exactly as a Christian, we are to do, or what are we not doing that the church in Germany in the 1930s should have done? And it led me to several conclusions I didn't want to say in writing. One you discuss in the book to some extent. Dietrich bonhoeffer. And how he made constant police to the church in Germany to do something. When confronted with the Nazis. And I don't want to understate our current position, but we're in a perilous time currently in this country where we could tip one direction or another. And it seems, we're tipping in the bad direction. No question. And I also run a sub stack, and on that sub stack, there is constantly people asking, okay, we need to do something. What is that? We have president Trump saying, we need to take the country back now. We can't wait. And it leaves everybody asking like your book did. What to do? What exactly would you have us do that we're not doing? And I think it raises the elephant in the room. And that is that we have a government that is inward dangerous. Weaponized politicized law enforcement. And everybody is afraid to say, what is it we do beyond what is lawful and peaceful? And by the way, I assume that I can speak freely here. Of course. And whether you air this interview is entirely up to you. Yeah. And I would not, I would not defer what I have to say. Based on hoping to get it, broadcast. Right. Having said that, I will say that when you are confronted with a tyranny in whatever form that has control of law enforcement, the courts and the laws, then by definition anything you would do to oppose that journey is going to be defined by them as unpeaceful and against the law. And that's where yeah. Yeah. Well, I mean, the way I see it is if Christians and again, I'm being in my booklet to the American church and I want to talk about your book, of course. But the point, since that's how we met each other, in my book letters to the American church, I'm simply asking the church to do what the church ought to do. In other words, you don't have to pick up a rifle, ladies and gentlemen. All you have to do is, there are a million things you could do. When somebody lies, you can say that's a lie. You can vote for people and advocate for leaders who are going to do the right thing. But there's this tremendous passivity and excuses given for passivity for doing nothing. So nobody's talking about actual insurrection, what I'm talking about is living out your faith and really living out your freedom as an American, but somehow this lie has crept into the church that we aren't to do anything. We're supposed to stay in our little theological lane, which is an idea from the pit of hell and it is leading us and that's what I say in my book letter to the American church. It is leading us precisely to what the German church in its silence and complacency and accommodationism led Germany to, which is to the abyss to hell..

"That's fonzie's jacket, which is in the Smithsonian. Yes. Okay. Okay. Okay, now we're going to get to this. What are you watching on TV these days, Eric? Right. I'm one of the old fashioned people who watches TV. You do? Yeah. It's incredible. We've got a wood stove and we watch TV. You got those tubes in the corner. Yep. We got the rabbit ears on the top and the soil and all that. Well, you take it off your hat and you put, I don't watch much TV, but I will tell you, I used to watch the news shows, I can no longer bear in this time of genuine disinformation and lunacy to watch much of that. I certainly don't dare watch the late night quote unquote comedians. Yeah. They've become like, let me just be kind and say, not funny. But what I do watch usually, I turn on Turner classic movies, which sometimes, but not always, has just wonder old movies. And last night, literally last night, they had on the 1938 Robin Hood with Errol Flynn, Olivia De Havilland, basil, rathbone, and Claude Rains. And it's in color. So it's this 1938 in huge full color. And that is just one of the most classic, wonderful films of all. It was on not long ago, so I didn't watch the whole thing again last night, but Suzanne hadn't seen it. But we watched that when my daughter was little. And I love Turner classic movies just because they tend to have such great stuff on. So if you don't get Turner classic movies as part of your package, I totally recommend it. I'm not getting paid to say that. But also, there is a channel, I don't know where if it's around the country, but certainly in the New York area called decades. And at 9 o'clock every night, they have on the dick cavet show. Oh. And last night, I mean, I'm watching, you know, made Marian and Errol Flynn and their love scene and whatever. And then I thought, oh, holy cow, it's 9 o'clock. I just watched this a couple of weeks ago. Let me see what's on Cabot. Dick Cavett last night. I can't believe I missed most of the show. I'm kicking myself. His guests were Muhammad Ali, Woody Allen. Wow. Cloris Leachman. Oh my goodness. I said, I would give an arm to have interviewed any of them. Of course, I've met Woody Allen a number of times. I don't think he's going to consent to be interviewed by me. But the idea that there's a show with Muhammad Ali, this has had to be 1971, Woody Allen in his prime, Cloris Leachman. I adore Cloris Leachman. Oh my gosh, one of the just the greatest comic actresses ever beautiful and so the three of them are there. And the interplay, I just said, I can't believe that somebody has the brilliance. This is decades. They are a lot of old. They put on the Dick Van Dyke show. They put in a lot of old stuff, but the fact that they're putting on cabbage shows at 9 p.m. eastern, I'm in hog heaven. And so if I'm bored at 9 o'clock of an evening, I'm turning on decades, or as I said, Turner, classic movies. We don't even have any time left. Do we have any time? But just so you know, Ann and I are still watching miss marple. Every miss marple that ever existed. In fact, we're so far ahead that now she's misses marble. She gets married. Are you at 85?

And now going on to another question. Question number one. I'm going to let you read some of these thoughts on the historical artifacts. There are historical artifacts, and I thought maybe you'd read it. The Shroud of Turin, the sudu rim of oviedo. Well, I thought we were going to do the what are you watching? I thought I'd do it a third if you don't mind. Whatever. You're the excerpt. I am the expert. Okay, the other day, I guess a week ago, somebody wrote in, what are your favorite historical artifacts? Yes. And we're compiling a list because I asked you all to write in to tell us what are your favorite historical artifacts. There are a number of my favorites, which we'll talk about another time. But. Most of them I mention in my book as atheism dead. I mean, there's insane stuff insane. But somebody wrote to us, what are your thoughts, Eric, on these historical artifacts, the Shroud of Turin, the sudarium of ido and the tunic of Argentina. I don't know how you pronounce that. The Shroud of Turin. To my mind, is utterly authentic and is one of these just bizarre miracles of history. The idea that this would have survived kind of makes no sense. That alone is an insane miracle that if this thing ever existed that it would have survived and that it would have survived into an era where we now have the technology, which we didn't even have 30 years ago. Or much less 300 years ago to examine it to see that it is indeed almost certainly authentic. So the Shroud of turn, we had Jerome corsi on this program. He wrote a thriller about the Shroud of Turin, which I recommend very readable, and it's got tons of nonfiction, even though the book is a work of fiction. It has tons of nonfiction information on the Shroud of turn, but the Shroud of Turin to me is this one of these things that I can't even believe that it exists that because part of me would say, oh, that's just silly. But the more you look into it, and the more technology we have, the more we're able to say, yes, this is almost certainly real, like the technology that we can use to look at it now is just a astonishing. So it really just, I mean, when you talk about historical artifacts, I don't think there's anything that can top that. I simply don't. The sudarium, that's the face clot. I won't get into that because we've got other questions, but I just think that the Shroud of Turin, if you want to know more about it, you can look it up, but Jerome corsi, whom we've had on the program, wrote a book, a novel, I think it's called the Shroud codex. And it is really worth looking into. It's worth reading. And I think it will bolster your faith or for your skeptic. I just challenge you to help me understand what you think it could possibly be, because that to me is the ultimate historical artifact. The sudarium real quick, is that the face that Veronica failed commonly known as that? Yes. And I don't know too much about that. I don't need to talk about that right now. And then the tunic. That's fonz jacket..
