Now this is Columbia South Carolina, and I know a little bit about South Carolina. I'm in. I'm in South Carolina today. In the upstate. In the Greenville Spartanburg Anderson area.

Colombia is blue. Colombia is Richland county, Colombia, not elections in county, but Richland county is heavily Democrat. Biden carried Richland county by 38 points. All right?

He won by four percentage points. Again, this was a race where the Democrat machine was heavily invested in trying to push tamika Isaac Devine over the finish line.

State Farm Stands by Aaron Rodgers After His Vaccine Comments
"I want you to hear the first sentence in USA Today to give you an idea that you're talking about a media that is the American media. That no longer even professed to separate opinion from news. Listen to the first sentence of the USA Today, which is just the left wing propaganda sheet. This is proof. Listen to the first sentence. Given a chance to repudiate the lies and misinformation spread last week about COVID-19 vaccines. By Green Bay Packers quarterback and company pitchman Aaron Rodgers State Farm punted. This is the writer Christine Brennan. I wonder if she went to which journalism school she went to Columbia University of Missouri. Given the chance to repudiate the lies and menace information spread last week. What lies in misinformation did he spread? I'd like to read further. Aaron Rodgers has been a great ambassador for our company, for much of the past decade, a company spokesman said in a statement to USA Today, sports Monday morning. We don't support some of the statements he has made but we respect his right to his own personal point of view. Do you know how rare that is in America? This was the most common thing, said in the United States about speech. We may not agree with you but we respect your right to have a different opinion.
Wokeism Is Threatening Every Single Young Person's Future
"Is what do we do about the things we're not allowed to talk about? And that's one of the things I want to talk about. What do you do about the things that are thought crimes, right? And this is what's so great about elections is that you're able to do it in privately or unless you're supposed to be able to do it in privately, right? Which this is why we named our entire tour what we did, which is critical racism to our critical race theory, and I don't need to dwell on this too much. I know a lot of you have seen plenty of videos on this from us. But pure and simple, we did this tour because diversity equity inclusion woke is, whatever you want to call it, seeping into every single portion of American life is is threatening every single young person's future. And so what is it? So CRT, it's an academic theory that's not just an academic theory. It's now in every single form of American life from academics to military to corporate and I'll prove to just some examples in front of you, which it is a basis of trying to say, we are going to judge, we are going to stereotype. We're going to organize people based on the color of their skin. And super simply put, it's saying that things you can not change are more important than things you can change. Saying that your skin color is super important. Let me boil it down even easier to you. 75 schools across the country have black only dormitories. 75 schools across the country, where they say we are going to have dormitories for white people and dormitories for black people. Explain to me how that is not resegregation and Jim Crow two. Well, it is. It's racism. You don't have to overcomplicate it. And anyone defends it is a racist. And so now we have the reemergence of American racism under this veiled cloak of woke ism at Columbia University. They have black only graduation ceremonies. I mean, I was always raised in a country. You were too, that if you judge people based on the call of their skin, you're a racist. Oh, I'm sorry, you're not allowed to walk in this graduation ceremony because you have a different melanin content. Color your skin? Yes, that's ridiculous. You don't have to overthink it. I don't have to give an hour and a half lecture on why that's wrong. It's racist and it's bigoted, but it's happening
The Similarities Between Terry McAuliffe and Horace Mann
"I don't know about you, but I like talking to John's mirror. And I was talking to him was a yesterday about John Dewey, Horace Mann, about education about what mcauliffe said before he went down in flames and John, I thought, let's keep talking about that because we had ten minutes here. And I said, this is actually so important. And that's why when he said what he said that parents shouldn't have the right to interfere in what the teachers teach I just thought that is one of the wildest statements I've ever heard. The idea that an adult running for office could say such a thing or even things such a thing, again, call me naive, but I was absolutely astonished. Well, it was a great moment of candor. Terry mcauliffe said in a debate, parents should not be telling teachers what to teach in schools. We have experts for that. That was very candid. And as I said last time, Horace Mann, the founder of mass compulsory public education in America, Horace Mann, school for teachers is associated with Columbia University. I remember seeing it when it would get off to Trevor bridge. He was a Unitarian. He kept that kind of quiet. He was a social gospel reformer, and he thought it was the job of public schools to save children from their parents. You had all these fundamentalist Christians who believed in the Bible. You had all these Catholic immigrants getting off the boat like my ancestors. And they had all these reactionary views. They were not on board with modern science with progressive ideas with eugenics with all the things that the progressive movement had in mind. A massive federal government managing the country from the top down as experts basically peeling away the old constitution. Woodrow Wilson, before he ran for president, wrote a book about how the constitution was this archaic obsolete rickety 18th century mechanism we needed clear it out of the way so that we could run the government according to the dictates of modern science. And by modern science, they meant Charles
How 'Wokeism' Is a Threat to American Life With Megyn Kelly
"Issues. Let's talk about the CRT battle. You've decided to speak out about this, saying, I don't want to put words in your mouth. But you've given some opinions about this, especially given your own family in New York City and kind of all the drama surrounding that comment a little bit about where you think our country's at with this and do you consider kind of woke ism to be a threat to the American way of life? Yes, I do. I mean, I think it needs to be fought and we need all hands on deck, because while their army is a lot smaller than our army, it's powerful. And it may be small in number, but they have control of some key institutions, including the media, including academia, now sports, and so on. And so if we don't fight, they're only going to grow further and more powerful. So now's the time and I get that it's scary, but I'm kind of done listening to how scary it is because this is an existential moment for our country of our way of life. And I just interviewed John mcwhorter. You know, he brilliant Columbia University professor. He and Glenn Lowry, they speak sense when it comes to race and all this stuff that we've been listening to. And recorder just said to me and I quote, it's in his new book, make no mistake. They are coming for your children. That's exactly
Astrophysicist Hugh Ross Describes When He Learned of 'The Fine-Tuned Argument'
"Program. Welcome to the Eric metaxas show, Hugh Ross, great to see you. Good to see you, too. Thank you. Well, I mentioned in the beginning of the book that it really was you who got me thinking about things, for example, like the fine tuned universe. I had literally never heard about that until about 1990 when I read your book, maybe it was fingerprint of God. I can't remember which book it was. But I was astonished to read this, having never heard about it. And over the decades, I have been quietly amassing more and more evidence as it piles up as science draws us closer and closer to the idea it's obvious and intelligence created the universe there's no way this just happened. When did you in your career first notice these things or become acquainted with the fine tuned argument? It probably goes back to my teenage years. I mean, I started getting serious, but astronomy, when I was 7 years of age and wait a minute. That's no teenager. That's a very early, you're probably the world's youngest teenager, you're smart. You probably achieved teenage dumb at age 7. Okay, so at age 7, what happened in your life to get you thinking about this stuff? Well, I was looking up at the stars and wanted to know why they were hot and my parents said go to the library. And that started me on reading four or 5 books on astronomy and physics per week. And during my teenage years, I actually launched a research study in astronomy with my telescope, looking at newborn stars and different gaseous nebulae. I wound up winning the British Columbia science fair, went on to the Canadian science fair and then I decided, hey, I'm going to continue that. I've been fascinated with astronomy ever since. But I've got struck by the fine tuning, probably beginning at about each 15 is when I realized wow. Now hang on, when you say the British Columbia science fair. How old were you when you won the British Columbia science fair? I was 17.

Jenna Ellis Tells Us What's on the Docket for the Supreme Court
"I'm talking to my friend Jenna Ellis about the news of the day. We're talking about fear mongering. We're talking about vaccine mandates. Can you give us an update since you know a lot about the Supreme Court on what lies ahead? Because it is interesting to have a majority of people that we would consider actual constitutionalists. What do you suppose will happen in the next term? Yeah, it's going to be really fascinating. The new term started October 4th and there are already a few cases on the docket that are going to be argued into November and December that are going to have huge implications on religious liberty on abortion in the United States and on the Second Amendment. They've actually taken up the first Second Amendment case since 2008. And the District of Columbia versus Heller decision. So that'll be interesting and before we get into a couple of these cases, you mentioned, you know, we actually have a majority that are constitutionalists. Well, first, I hope so. And I don't categorize justice Roberts at all. Oh, I was talking about. So we hope to make me laugh. Have at least a 5 four. But what a lot of people say is, well, you know, you're just as activist than as the Democrats. We know that's not true because wanting a conservative majority means we actually understand what the judicial branch is designed for, which is to hold accountable the two political branches and to make sure to preserve and protect our world. Look, we've gotten trapped into this kind of language. The fact of the matter is, if you are not a constitutionalist and originalist, in my mind, you're an
New York Must Allow Religious Exemptions to COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate, Judge Rules
"Out of New York of all places, a federal judge. Extended the order requiring New York State to allow religious exemptions from its COVID-19 vaccinations. From that mandate for healthcare workers, it's a ruling that could help shape the legal landscape according to The Wall Street Journal around government required shots. This week, U.S. district judge David heard in Utica, New York ruled that the mandate conflicted with individuals federally protected right to seek religious accommodation from their employers. And Mark has this kind of bizarre all people are just faking it and you just can't throw that around. You have to have a sincere religious exemption. Well, Mark, you don't get to decide who has a sincere religious belief. We can't tell other people that. The guy I interviewed from Columbia South Carolina this week, he's a staunch Catholic. He says Mike Catholic beliefs. Impacted my decision to refuse to get the vaccine. Now this popular sportscaster is out of a job because his company fired him. You don't get to decide that for other people, but all of a sudden, conservatives think that's okay. That doesn't feel right

But identifies as non binary right. It's not the same at all as transgender transgender is. We change your gender but non binary is there is no gender. that's by far. The most egregious attack on the dignity of the human species which is divided into male and female. The transgender does not deny that the human species is male or female. They denied that that they are biolo-. Biology is what defines their sex or their gender as they call it. But the non binary deny that there's even male and female there neither so the person needed to be called they and somebody worked refused to refer to the person as they and them and was penalized.

I think in the eighties. There was something like one hundred twenty thousand one hundred thirty thousand hunting license should be careful because i don't have that one on top mad but i recall that being somewhere in the neighborhood so we're so general growth in hunting Over the past ten percent in the past ten years. But she kind of interesting. And i i looked at this so there was two Two thousand two hundred sheep tags sold in twenty Twenty eleven and twenty twenty and then twenty twenty twenty twenty one twenty twenty twenty two twenty one. There's thirty two hundred. So i think if i'm out this right that's almost a thousand more tag which is essentially about a fifty percent increase on two thousand. So that's a significant increase when we're looking at a general increase in participation of ten percent but in the she punting interest is that considerable growth in interest which i which i think is remarkable. The other part about this is that the sheep harvest raise actually drops in the last ten years so that could be a well. Maybe i'll ask two questions. Sir are based on those numbers. I is adam. Alaska have have you seen and and as your as as the editor involved with the with the journal not hunting project. Have you seen an increase interest in sheep hunting within your following a readership Does do those stats make sense to you. It's the first i'm hearing those stats in.

That's an experience in itself right. It's his mind blowing in cool ways Yeah yeah it's Yeah what what was the highlight for you the ultra would you say the company. It sounds like but the key. The company was amazing. I couldn't imagine doing a solo hunt like that especially with the weather that came in and having to to spend so much time in a tent when some of the front's came in we were at the tent by three and we weren't leaving till nine the next morning and that's a that's a hell of a lot of time to spend with your thoughts when when it's coming down at like minus seven overnight and you're dealing fifty kilometer and hour gusts and snow and wind and it's it it really it screws with your mind a little bit and you really find out what you're made of sounds cliche and you go. You find out who you are when you do one of these hunts and when you're you're digging the polls in and you're you're looking okay. There's only two hundred more meters to go up this little slide and the winds coming down. It's well you do look inside yourself and you go well. It isn't mental game. At this point.

"You mentioned you know kind of searching around here not finding something that kind of met your expectations as far as colombian coffee and What was the the missing link that you saw there. Then i think that ties a little bit into something that we have not had here on the show before and that somebody who's actually having their beans roasted in columbia correct that's correct. So what was the missing link. And how did you get that in your coffee and your beans. How did that happen. You know talking about them missing missing link where we see a lot is like colombian coffee and you know coming from these plays and got roles. The here and things like that but being from columbia. What started researching these You know that farmers are in a huge need of many ways. You know actually to get back to my my background. I'm actually an attorney in columbia by work in the prosecution department. So i got actually to leave son of you know of. They colombian rough times where you know. Violence was big part of it. So but what. What kind of guy mean to thinking about you know helping. Farmers was dr like actually a lot of these. Farmers have been involving so many violence victim of You know these are unfortunately part of the colombian history of You know of the conflict over there. So part of the colombian bland to help. Those families have been you know son of dan to You know helping with the production of coffee. So part of my idea to this was to aid to help us marshals. I could in terms of not only helping them right over there. You know from peking begin the coffee by hand but also to help those families to leave out of the coffee production. So how can i help so all these got into like a less roasted coffee here too in colombia where you know the whole process can be in one place from the campaign process to the dry process to you. Know to send it to the roster rosary and get us marsh- basically as much help as i could so That's what kinda light got into the process of a i'm going to Do all that in one place. So that way everything is you know is. Is there a helping all those families. Asthma say can't so that's kinda got me into doing over there ride than doing over here and and that actually does help it. Helps in terms of giving the the the prophets directly to the farmers xetra. That's correct that's correct basically saying in one whole process in the same area everything is local is staying one whole area and way. There is more guarantee held to those farmers. At point i would. Roast are here. Because i think that's where the the business in in terms of You know it. I have to think about everybody to and there are people that some of my clients that were like. Also have it rose to here and you know. I think that's Definitely of the future plants to have dr also over here but ms stihler small business owner and Still still a pre brearley. Still you know. I mean i would say since i started seeing in two thousand nineteen to two now definitely have make a lot of progress but the end still is still a small small business. And i'm fine with that. So so the area that you source your your beans from. Is the area that you grew up in around. No so i grew up in the north part of columbia which is is the coast of columbia. But i didn't i didn't grow up in in kindy. Oh that's where the that's where the main place of my coffee comes from.

So you are basically crammed in the back of this four by four with at least a dozen other people of course all locals. We were the only other travelers who went that far. I guess and then random animals start coming in so we had piglets on the floor. We had baby goats on the floor at a chicken on my lap at one stage. I think i had a baby on my lab. I wonder if we had a little baby. Sir whose baby was but there was a lot of south coming in and on our way back out was the same thing tons of livestock tons of animals just like feathers everywhere and we were leaving very early in the morning. It was maybe four. Am before it was even light out. And we were stopping at all of these farms in little houses along the way and we had some unexpected visitors strapped to the roof. We had three shoes. Desert tortoises will probably about six foot wide <unk>. Honestly the biggest ever seen in my life and about five or six men were putting it on top of the roof. I don't know where it was going. The poll seeing but <hes>. Yeah it was quite a wild ride. Yeah it was literally wild. Ride just filled with animals animal. The funny experience is that common for them to like four turtles or tortoise on the roof that he's definitely how i told us on the roof experienced but it is quite common for them to travel with livestock especially when you're traveling in rural areas in indigenous communities. Quite common for them to you. Know they got the coming from the local markets so they've got a chicken and it's tied up. They've got a guard or luke pig. Hug todd their fate name jumping the boss jump jumping the car and go back home. And that's fairly common. We they call it. Chicken buses in central america raisin. There's a lotta chickens on him. Where the animals with you for most of your trip or like how long were you with. The animals offset hotan. So this place. Here is is pretty oscillated. So this is a few rule. Sort of villages <unk>. Affiliates little so to commune areas along the way but most of the people going from sort of point either point bay and they traveling with all that livestock eight a two they were bringing it back so yeah pretty much the whole four hours. We will sloshing around in the back of these full by four pickup truck with a whole bunch of animals and people just like one guy with a chicken. Walk it off but then one guy with tj can gets on so it's always balancing let made you choose to go there out of all the places since it's not a very typical worse destination executives and at that point we had spent probably <hes>. Maybe a year in latin america. And we were just ready to get like pushed the boundaries. And get even far off the beaten track and just really wanted to go where we're not going to be surrounded by backpackers cause of knives and colombia and peru in those countries you kind of end up on the tourist trail and you just get stuck with me. No and it's great. You make a lot of friends that way. But you're kind of sick of just being surrounded by backpackers all the time. So we wanted to go somewhere where it's just all locals. We could really get to know the culture and just push boundaries basically and that seemed like the best option and it was an interesting experience. We're definitely the only travelers we saw their ended up sleeping in hammocks outside of this cabin thing in the wind and the rain and we just wayne in this hammocks is pretty intense but it was beautiful just super rugged pristine landscape out there right on the coast but still very desert and dry and yeah is really gorgeous and we'd heard that the junior was half the adventure and definitely was probably one of fiber journey stories that we tell because destination was out there. But you know we've been traveling for eight years ten years
"columbia" Discussed on C-SPAN Radio
"But I had a wonderful professor Columbia law school later moved to Stanford, Jerry he was in charge of getting clerkships for Columbia students and I called every federal judge in the second circuit in the Southern East Eastern District of New York, and he was not meeting with success. So he called a Columbia graduate, Edmund, who was Colombia undergraduate, Columbia Law School graduate and always took from Colombia and Say. I strongly recommend that you engage Ruth bid against Palmieri's response was I've had women markers. I know they're okay. But she's a mother and sometimes we have to work on weekends, even on a Sunday, so professor said. A chance that that she doesn't work out. A young men in her class who's going to a downtown firm will jump in and take over. So that was the carrot. There was also a stick and the stick wass. If you don't give her a chance, I will never recommend another Columbia Columbia graduate as you are. That's the way it.
