"You are now thought to. This in steam days raising a banner of Boll colors, no pale pastels. People should not be afraid. They go. Government should be a free maple rice. In and his sensual delights from our mak- is liberty. In America. This is steam days. Greetings, happy, Wednesday. Welcome to the Steve day. Show podcast addition here on Westwood One powered by crtv. And I. I'm a moron more in that moment. Stephen dais dot com is the Email address. You can like us on Facebook. Follow us on Twitter at Steve dais show, and the last name is spelled DAC, Todd, and Aaron are here with me as well. We just wrapped up production for today. Crtv show, Todd, give the audience a little preview of what's coming their way to catch my breath for a second. I, I've heard a lot of interest to the Steve day show, but that that level of falling on your sword is humility could goodness. Let's see. What did we call balls and strikes brother. Yeah, I'm just saying, I don't think you rely on yourself there. I think what's notable, oh, the press is magical and not at all. Broken has always Aaron. Oh mercy. Daniel Horowitz was all sunshine in Daisy's today as always and I think our audience will will wanna be refreshed and uplifted, and if he doesn't do it for you, then I'm sure today's montage will well, if you want to subscribe to crtv to watch today show if you are accordingly enticed. Steve did use my name is a promo code dais just my last name dais at crtv dot com. Crtv dot com. Promo code ace will get you a discounted subscription crtv dot com promo code as how discounted has a quarter a day. That's all it will cost to watch our show and in every show the great one Mark Levin on down crtv dot com promo code days. Okay. So. Pardon me? I am a more on guys. We made this big announcement yesterday. I took like fifteen minutes to explain it. You're on the podcast. Yeah, see lots of moving parts. Todd originally thought that I was being too hard on myself. And now when he realizes why said I'm a moron. He realizes that I'm not. You know, my maybe my favorite line in the last jet I is when Luke Skywalker says after Kylo Ren goes on this, like convicting rant looks and says, amazing every everything you just said is exactly wrong. So everything I told you yesterday is exactly wrong. It's it's actually much simpler and I don't. I don't know how I miss this. I probably had about eighty conversations about the partnership that we announced yesterday between crtv and the blaze for our show here probably at about eighty conversations. You know the last six weeks while we put this together, several of them with you guys, right. And then I apparently reading comprehension another one of my weaknesses because I must have missed it. I review everything word every word of everything. Before I ever signed my name to something. I missed it there as well. So we get off the air yesterday and our management. One of our members of the management here crtv is pleading with me to put something on social media because there's this presumption we're leaving crtv in a boat. You are crtv spread subscribers like what's going on. So put something on the Facebook wall, which is essentially a a transcript of what we opened up this podcast with to announce yesterday. Right. In our executive editor, it's your TV gassed and calls me up and he's like, dude. That's exactly wrong. Okay. So here's the partnership guys. It's much simpler. If you're a crtv subscriber right now, you don't need to do anything. Nothing will change except you'll just get twice the show you were getting before. Really more like four times. I was just gonna say the math sucks to now. That's something else. Here for you. My accused dropping four minutes in so typical crtv show right now is about thirty to forty minutes. It's it's now going to be a full two hours every day, a full two hours. So if you're a subscriber to crtv, you don't have to change anything and you're actually going to get now more content for your money than what you were saying before. If you subscribe to the blaze, you're gonna get to watch us. Do the TV show in real time as we're producing it. Right? So we just got done producing today. Crtv show on come Monday. If you were ablaze subscriber, you would get to watch us as we do this in real time live four crtv you'll get to watch us live. And then if you know and I get it, man, people have tight budgets. You can't afford everything. If you just want the free podcast that we do, you're gonna get the podcast of that to our show. You're gonna get it once it's already been posted in put out there. You'll get the archived audio podcast of this that you're already subscribing to on. I tunes Stitcher, Google play. Spotify, you're still going to get that after we're done every day. And again, instead of our audio podcast is using around forty five minutes a day. Now it's going to be a full two hours. So essentially the blaze is going to syndicate this show. From crtv and there's a lot of benefits. A lot of people people miss the, some of the, you know, just the brakes and the feel of a radio show. People miss that. And also when we do it live, you can listen to it live as well at the blaze dot com. You can just listen to it, live for free. And if you if you if you can't afford to the subscription again, you can listen to the audio live for free at the blaze dot com as we are recording the show for crtv. Yeah, that's it. We'll take callers to sometime. Yeah, it'll be like it'll. It'll be great. So essentially in order to obtain this big new syndication network, we agreed to expand the show. And so it's like we just picked up a major affiliate, right? It's like New York City came to us and said, hey, if you do another hour that fits into our broadcast schedule, we will Cindy, we'll pick up your show as an affiliate. And that's essentially with the blazed it. The crtv said, hey, what do you guys want the blessed? We need another hour and so- crtv said, let's do another hour. That's. That's. I think I have it right now. Correct? Yeah. So again, to recap, if you are a crtv subscriber, don't change anything. You're gonna get everything that you liked about our show that you were already subscribing to. You're just gonna get a lot more of it. Now you're gonna get a two hour show every day. If you are a blaze subscriber, you're gonna get to watch us as we do the show for crtv live in real time via the blaze. If you can't afford a subscription, either place, you can listen to it, live from noon to two as we're doing it at the blaze dot com. Or if you just prefer to get the podcast when it gets posted later in the day, just sit around and wait for that to go up on itunes, Stitcher, Spotify, Google, play later in the day, right into your current, you know, a podcast or RSS feed in. It'll show up like it always had before. And again, you'll just get more of the content you are already getting every day. That's it. Did I get it right this time? Yes. Eighty first attempt. That eighty first attempt is the is the charm. You've always say early in the morning. Slip went past days. It's you're so used to having the unpaid. Every story that comes our way is some. Piece of garbage with a bow wrapped around it, and you have to in this was just like, there's actually it's hard to believe that there's not garbage inside a package you're giving, you know, I think that's all that was you just you. You had to believe on some level that there was a bunch of pieces involved. There weren't really there. I mean, I think we've all been program to that extent. So we'll just keep rocking enrolling. No big deal. Yeah. I mean, essentially. You know, the prince said, I will swim the moat I will slay the dragon in order to win your affection in the Princess was over here like. All you had to do is ask. So yesterday on this fifteen minute explanation. That's it's all wrong. It's all wrong. I think now we have it right? And so this begins on Monday and we are all very excited. So the blaze dot com. If you wanna watch live from noon to two eastern time or if you're crtv subscriber, stay right where you are, you'll get the same show right about the same time. Abe even a little earlier than you are already getting it. You're just going to get more of it. We're done here right, preach. We're done. Okay. Let's begin this place in by other whole. This is where our producer Aaron each Wednesday. And yes, one of the questions I've gotten a lot. We love the segments. You guys do each each day on the podcast. You're gonna do that on this show? Yes, we're sensually going to merge the two shows content. Now we're going to merge them into one show, and so we are gonna play by Ciller hold every Wednesday to theology, Thursday every Thursday, just now the blazes massive audience is gonna get a chance to hear and watch some of the stuff that we do every single week as well. All right. So if you're a frequent listener to the podcast, you know the rules Erin puts out a proposition. It may be from his conscience or imagination. Often though he will just take the easy way out and mooch off of the audience and reduce your HS instead Todd, and I will decide, are we buying that? Are we selling that note or we hold ING it? You are allowed one hole per episode, but if it's for any reason other than this is just such a lane proposition, I can't bear to dignify with an answer. The dude code calls for you to be mercilessly mocked. Right? Okay. No subject by the way is off limits it you. It can't be dumb. Just don't be, oh, there were. There were a couple of this week that were off limits or dumb that were off limits. Okay. Aaron, you may give. Did you say that I sometimes move mooch off the audience? Yes, no. Like every week, man, I will start with the segment that's sponsored by concertinaed ideas who by the way, got the most votes of any Republican in the United States as he runs for California. And this show is gonna take some of the credit overtaken. I've already told him to his face. We're taking all the credit with the Steve day show expanding to a two hour show. It's like getting your show for about twelve point, five cents per day instead of a quarter per day by that's very true. And actually if we were doing about forty minutes on average and now it's going to be and they'll be some ads in there obviously now. Okay. So let's say with the commercial breaks, it's maybe an hour and forty five minutes. So you're getting that's close to one hundred and thirty percent more yes content. So we're probably down in the eight to nine cent range a day. So our value increasing. I've gotta believe Chris rock from I'm gonna get you suck. I gotta believe nine cent. I gotta believe how much for one ramp. I gotta believe tower worth nine sets the kind of being conning you want controlling in California's. Exactly. Yes. Tecmo super bacon says cocaine, Mitch would not have used the nuclear option for Gorsuch or Cavanaugh if Harry Reid had not used it in two thousand thirteen by absolute by the. The most self owning tweet in the history of Twitter, and I can't think of a close second is, is Harry Reid jumping on Twitter at twenty thirteen to say, thank you to all the people, thanking him for ending the judicial filibuster. The last time the Democrats were in control. And. I, I was not the only one that went back and pulled that tweet out and shared it over the weekend. That is the most self owning tweet in the history of Twitter. It's cost them now now one, but two supreme court seats. So not to mention the really cool name. You've referenced bacon and super Tecmo dude, I wanna be your friend number one, but not only do you have a cool avatar name? Your analysis is bullseye. She Todd high by, but I do. I actually just like Lindsey, Graham, I genuinely thank him. His motivations may have been entirely off, but it was actually the by default, it was the right thing to do. I'd love this speaking of analysis. We're gonna take this one in three parts just because I think it's good. This is all has to do with the next ventures. This is from Taylforth a major theme in adventures for will be the failure of fan Osas philosophy. Instead of utopia civilization is thrown into anarchy. He will look not upon grateful universe, but one broken by his hand. So that's one part. It's funny. I have to go to Dallas now because of this deal, I have been summoned by Mr., Becca, Dallas, and so I'm going to be on the blaze on his show on Friday morning, why down in Dallas. So I won't be here for the dais group taping Friday morning. Now my prediction. This Friday was going to address where you're going with this right now. Okay. And I'm going to sell. What he just said. Are you okay over there? Something's tastes weird with my topsy. It's probably 'cause I poured it seven o'clock this morning and it's and it's to thirty seven and a half hours ago might have something to do with it. Yeah. This coffee go flat, like pop. I don't know. I've never drink. It depends on what kind of crappy put in it. I didn't put any. I don't put any crap in my coffee. What kind of minded to make sure that's troubling? No Fru Fru for you. Regular coffee should not go flat. Okay. But I don't want to spoil it, so we're gonna get to any year three parts because this goes right to what I was gonna predict on Friday for the dais group, which I will bring up in this conversation now since it just came up. But my I'm going to sell on the very first part, go ahead buying or selling. I think I will say, I think it, I think it will be utopian on some level. Akin to the matrix. How at the first design of the matrix was more utopian and it didn't work. So I also partout so you're, you're gonna buy Steve, so you're so you're selling? Yeah. So he's basically saying that the fruit of Malthus ethics is going to be a major theme of this of this. I agree that it will be, but you don't agree with the specifics. I don't agree with the way he's going to approach it, what? What's the rest of his associates? So the bonus will be you guys were both fell on this. He'll admit this by the end, he'll admit that his philosophy held sell k. here's what I think's gonna happen. Man, I want to be wrong. Okay. I want there have been few predictions I have made on the dais group roundtable that I'm making two days in advance today. There are few predictions I have made that I have wanted to be more wrong about than this one. But reading all the tea leaves of where marvel is going. Here's what I think is going to happen. I think now Suzanne ethics is going to be affirmed by the next adventures movie. Oh no. And the debate what's going to happen is people went on there? I think they're going to fast forward five, ten fifteen years. There'll be a time jump. And society has moved on forgotten. The people that were that were lost. A history were either forgotten or or maybe even never existed in the average person doesn't even know what they missed. And it's a tease of similar to what when when when Thanos says Gamarra's, hey, have you seen what's happened to your planet since I did this. You've got Kevin Smith and other prominent fan boys out there, making the case, the last few months that they knows is the hero. They're gonna. The dilemma of the avengers is going to be that they feel compelled to go back and undo what Thanos did. But the reality is the world is quite happy. Having fewer people having this mass loss of population, it cetera because more for me and that in the dilemma will be rather than throwing mouth Uzi and ethics and Margaret Sanger under the bus. When what got me thinking about this was something I watched yesterday, and then we talked to falem Makhalira who wrote the book on Gosnell that was turned into the movie that's coming out this week in. Remember what he said about the trial. When he said the prosecutor was so adamant about not letting this produce a broad base statement that abortion is murder, but they nearly let Kermit Goss don't get away with everything by pointing out that there's, there's clean healthy abortions and then there's what Gosnell did. And the line between the two was such as such a thin thread that they almost they almost preemptively made the case that Gosnell was innocent. And I think I hope I'm wrong. Man. I want to be wrong. Kevin Feige out there saying we're gonna make movies about Muslim superheroes, see, I have a problem with making a movie about a Muslim superhero. It's just the Muslim superhero wants to make a movie about no one cares about. And the only reason you make a movie about her is to get your three point. You know, helmet sticker on the intersection -ality scale that won't be two hundred million dollar movie. I don't care who they put it. There's just not interested in her as a character. She's a minor minor, minor, minor character, and all the boxes and everything else they're trying to check for. So I think they've made their money and they're now going to earn their social Justice warrior points. And I think the dilemma in the next vendors film is that Thanos was right from a certain point of view, and there is dissension within the avengers about whether to go back and do what he did because some of injure see that the world is actually a better place than it was. I hope I'm wrong, but that was gonna be my prediction for the dais group. Friday. I agree with that. That's what I meant. There's going to be a level of utopia settled in, but the war are going to be coming. No matter how much time is taking place. And I think the time jump is interesting, but it's it. It's going to be clear on some level to those who have figured it out or understand the long game. Or at the very least the principal game that this is it's it. It's a lie. It's people are drugged. It may seem like it's working, but it may seem like it's working when you're. I don't think they will. I hope that's sort of the matrix thing. He's alluding to. I hope I hope they do that. I don't think they're going to final proposition. The final fight will not be against him, meaning Danas. Yeah, it will be against him. They can't have them fighting each other over team mouth Uzi in because they've already done the civil war. The final battle will be against him in some way shape, or now though here's where you're defending you it. It might be against those who are addicted to the new reality who want meeting Thanos has converts in. They join team essentially, perhaps most people, most people decided, oh, I'll have this utopian existence. That is a fraud. You know, it's a four utopia, but their drug, they're addicted to it. What the what are the cover? It's it's an idiot Crecy on some level. And so, yeah, the avengers all midly might be fighting. People that used to hover many years ago with a believed in the adventures, but they basically been coddled in into kissing the ring of fan. No. So I, I think there's something there. I think that only happens if your theory curves fancy look at this is internet. There's sort of matrix matrix in Matric Sian you know delusion that the causes the people to side with Thanos and the end adventures and having to fight some of, you know, some people that they've defended in the past. I think I think that only happens actually, if your theory occurs is what I think gen-x conservative says. Nikki Haley will replace Mike Pence's VP for the two thousand twenty election sell. So so Dennis Woodward says Trump will be a one term president. Told, why are you gonna hold? Because I, I don't know what's going to happen tomorrow in the cycle. I just can't. I've no idea. It's here's my. You're right. Here's why. Here's my dilemma. I've said for three years Trump versus straw, man. He's unbeatable Trump on his own. All the weaknesses come to light. So what I'm trying to figure out is in my head and this time I didn't punt to. Cop out. I was trying to get myself more time to think, and I was glad that you stepped in to do that. I'm trying to do the math in my head of who I think because I don't think Cory Booker Kamala Harris, and those people are going to be the democrat nominee. I think it's going to be somebody who's undefined politically. That can be look at the ads. They're running an Iowa. Have you noticed the ads the running here locally? No buses they now. Okay, the ads they are. They're, they're pilfering. Drowning our television screens. And right now don't are rarely mention any issues. They talk about the fact this candidates democratic candidates teacher, this democratic candidate work for a nonprofit. This democratic candidate is a veteran, okay. They're trying to, you know what the line from Batman from Batman begins. You know, what's you know. You know what's? What? What do you call an incorruptible symbol? A legend. Mr. Wayne, they're trying to create themselves as incorruptible symbols. They're not talking issues not they're not running on rainbow jihad and trainee rights, and they're not running on that stuff for the most part. So they want it. They're trying to create themselves as these are young new young candidates. Most of them are female and I'm guessing a lot around the country. You're probably in if you live in a swing state, you're probably seeing a lot of this exact same pattern mostly female little to no previous political experience so that they're more of a moving target. Can't just immediately say there, Nancy, Pelosi's, communist. Minion here. And I'm saying, I think it's far more likely the next democratic presidential nominee is going to be a person like that because I think all the Politico's we're talking about are all going to be over in this lane over here, feasting on one another, Cory Booker and Kamala Harris, and that whole group and Lisbeth Warren. They're going to be over here annihilating each other driving each other's negatives way up because they're gonna. See Trump is beatable and they're gonna think there's a mass opening to the White House, which leaves an opening for somebody to come from the outside similar what we saw Trump doing the Republican primary with with a with a convoluted field. So I'm trying to do the odds in my head are the odds greater that he's impeached resigns just doesn't want to do this anymore and loses or that he wins. I think Matt's really close actually. So I won't hold because you did. I'm going to buy the hill only be a one term president because I think it's like fifty one forty nine. That there's more ways for him not to be an office in twenty twenty one. Then there are for him to be an office in twenty twenty one. But I think it's because for all the reasons you are holding, it's really close in murky man. Yeah. Now, if I'm wrong in the kind of candidate, I think the Democrats will nominate from the outside does not emerge, and it is one of these people. The Booker Harris warns over here. Oh, the odds of Trump winning reelection go way up way up because they're going to have all the baggage of being politicians, and they won't be as good at the troll game is Trump will be. If you put Trump next to somebody with a damaged brand versus his damage brand, he's gonna go lower and more damage than you. Yeah. Okay. Every time if you put them up against somebody who's a pure symbol, that's a tougher fight for him to do that with. Okay. And so is there a Jeff Bezos or kind of figure. You know, March, you been somebody like that that they could Mark Cuban's in trouble right now with the NBA. So his social Justice warrior points are on the wane, but you guys what I'm trying to say somebody like that, but doesn't have built in political baggage that Trump can attack. So I hard tribalism says Alabama's to a tengo vile will be the first Heisman Trophy quarterback candidate with the fewest number of passes, thrown completions and fourth quarter snaps in history. I think this is a great observation. Yeah, I, I agree about the fourth quarter snaps. I don't know about the other stuff because remember all the years guys, we had like wishbone quarterbacks. Let's games ripple option, quarterbacks and less games. I mean, I get. I get the spirit of what he is saying. I agree with. I just don't know that you know all these years. I mean, we had years where you know, Johnny Liu jacket. Notre Dame is gonna win. The Heisman Trophy through one hundred passes all year. Say in the last since the turn of the century. Well. Played in the forties. How about if if we want to say since nineteen eighty true? I'm okay with that. Okay. I was thinking about it. I wasn't thinking about, could you wanna say modern era? I will buy into that. Here's thing to keep in mind. He has to come back next year. He's only off more eligible for the draft. I mean, when you look at how fast and quick his decision making is now what do you think it's going to be a year from now when he's had an entire season, the digest college defenses, man, it's it's good to be. It's gonna look like playing on the lowest level of a Madden while you've got the computer a in the lowest level while you're at the highest, it's he's already filthy. And I think we we talked about this while it was before the season even started. But I, I think the story now is how how magnanimous Nick Sabin actually was. I mean, yeah, there's a learning curve, but he stuck with his guy jail and hurt for a long time. I think just out of respect agreed into the program. But listen, this guy clearly was the guy, but you're twenty eight to ten. Or whatever it was at halftime of the national championship game. And it's clear that you gotta throw the ball downfield to come back and that's not as game, and he forced his hand, but he gave him every moment until that, and by the way for the most part Jalen hurts played pretty well. We forget dude was the SEC offensive player of the year as a true freshman. He led Alabama down the field against Clemson in that national championship game and scored. What should what typically would have been a winning touchdown with less than a minute left. We keep forgetting that right. The other problem is the other side had to Shawn Watson, a generational quarterback for their school and came back at the end. And and I think that's the, that's the difference when I really good college quarterback in somebody who is generational special, and that is probably the difference between Jalen hurts into Tonga viola. Next year Jalen hurts is going to be Texas or Florida where UCLA one of those kinds of schools or Michigan Michigan is running their off. Fettes he's going to need to be at a place with a spread offense. He's going to be at one of those kinds of schools. I'd say Nebraska might be on the list a school. It's gonna run where he's going to run a lot of that zone read and we're gonna sit here year from now. We're going to be like, man, remember how good you remember. We forgot how good Jalen hurts. It could just get to be in more of a system where he gets to make more plays with his legs, which you know at those schools, that's what they're looking for. All right, hate the blah, blah, blah back to superheroes here in a fight between marvel characters. The winner is let's take these rapid fire one by one Spiderman defeats deadpool by. I still I'm unclear based on the Ryan Reynolds dead pool and the one that was in the wolverine. Like, what? What are his skills? What can you do? Basically can't be hurt, and he's like a super mercenary. He's like, he's, he's, he's a, he's a takeoff of death stroke in the DC universe. He can't be hurt, so isn't it don't have to pick him over Spiderman. You can pick if you want, but I don't. I don't have like a principal position. I'm just I'm playing with no right now. The new Spiderman game for PS four till you in that is all kinds of incredible. Awesome sauce. So I'm all in on Spiderman right now. All right. So defeats Holck. So. A by ant man defeats iron man. So so Heimdal defeats captain America, Heim dolls, that keeper of the rainbow bridge. Okay. Over there. An Asgard defeats. Captain America sell sell, captain marvel defeats Thanos. Might be the movie right there sell. She'll give them. She can't do it on her own, but her. Her her power with the power. They already have gives them a chance, but she couldn't beat him one on one now. So the hulk is the most powerful hero figure in the marvel universe, the whole cast. To Ogden defeats any challenger. Who Ogden most powerful character in the marvel universe according to hate the blah, blah, blah, never heard of him neither by what's Ogden is what. That is, are we being trolled? I've lost my boy points. I've literally never heard the name Ogden have after Google it now Ogden. All right. Organ Redskins says with the college basketball, bribery case in court right now over under. So let's say if you are going over that's a by under as sell two teams, we'll get national championships with an asterik or fully revote. Because the college basketball. So he's putting the number two. So if you're buying that means you're going over to yoursel hundred two. I'm going over to really, wow. I like to be right sell though. All right tots. Phil says, someone will Email a nasty note complaining about the new blaze format by. By we all hate. We are all creatures of habit, and hey change. So by days I'll give you ten bucks. If for the opening segment you do nothing but sit there and relax with a cough drop. Erica squish it around, yes, yes. Mike, Don, airing ten says, should be legal to throat punch any quote, unquote, conservative talker pundit who after ignoring Joe Miller is now complaining about Murkowski. Spirit, but throw punches a lethal gesture. Okay. So I'm going to sell and you already, you just got done beating John casick about you gotta his punishable prints, I think. So. I don't believe in, you know, lethal force in this case. But I certainly have sympathy for the frustration in the sentiment. Overall itself agreed Rocco says, man in the high castle season three ended too abruptly washy as you haven't watched. So I, I just watched episode one of season two based on your Empire Strikes Back analogy. Yeah, I, I feel now I gotta go back and watch season one. It's been too long. There's too much going on. I don't even remember what happened. Man. Luke Zimmerman says, either Joe mansion or Lisa Murkowski or both disaffiliation from their current political parties. Following the twenty eighteen midterms sell sell, think mansion was gonna duty to done it before this election, whether than risk losing. Okay. I mean, mccaskey's just political. Sell out. So yes. So. This one from Pat riot. Within a year. Cavenaugh will rule on a case that causes people like Don lemon to say, quote, he's a man of integrity. He does the right thing by. Thing at that riot. I will sell not because he's not going to rule on that kind of case because done lemon won't say that maybe that's going, okay. I'm going to sell because that's going to far if you see, this is where you gotta stay in your lane. Okay, don't overreach. Who was it that made this proposition hat riots? So Pat, if you had written to us and said a year within a year, the Don lemon have quote, strange, new respect for Brett cavenaugh. We would all by that, right? But the whole fitting him for a man of integrity and stuff. They're never going there. Okay. So I agree. So I've Todd is right, that's going too far. Could they find themselves some strange new respect by. Okay, mine too. Yeah. Bill kindle says, Nikki Haley runs for president after Democrats impeach Trump at this point. It's a slight buy from me. Sell. So I don't believe the Republicans will lose the Senate. So I don't think you'll be removed from office. Although I don't think it's a guarantee that the Republicans would keep him as much as probably most people do because he's not a typical Republican, but I would still say the odds would heavily favor that they would. I do believe she will run for president. I just don't think it's that imminent. Says Hillary runs in twenty twenty in case you have notice. She's been over the news lately doing. She's always all over the news Mendy Hillary runs in twenty twenty. So this is another good. One. Bell ringer says, enlist the left backs off. Konya west will appear on Alex Jones to promote Trump before the twenty twenty election. I love that that bell ringer sell only day Alex Jones part, but Konya. And I don't pretend to know what drives the man, but there's just a like like cavenaugh in the dock. I'm going to defend the honor of my wife. He's just like going to be owned. I've had it it. I think it's, I think it's kinda cool. I opened keeps up and it's a kind of thing. Isn't this? The kind of thing that Steve, when you talk about the votes of various demographics and they don't, you don't need that big of swing percentage wise to change things. We may be talking about this election perhaps as the west election, it says, reasonable as anything else. I don't want you to be right about that last part, but you are. I'm going to buy that. He's on Alex Jones. 'cause I, I really wanted to happen. Scott south says between now and twenty Twenty-eight. There will be an extended period of time more than two years with eight or fewer supreme court justices due to unfilled vacancies by ourselves sell. So I will so. Tell. Jacob peppered says, bake the cake big. It becomes an official campaign slogan of the democratic twenty twenty presidential nominee. Paraphrased? Yes. By. Did you see what what Eric Holder said? Yeah, when they go kick him. Yeah, he said it. It's. It's happening. See, here's why I'm torn. If it's if it's one of the people on that original bo-bottle we talked about Friday. You're right. If I'm right that they're gonna try and get somebody that is more of an impervious simple than the answer's no. So because I'm going to operate under that theory until proven wrong, I'm going to sell. He's already by. He's already buying a equals a says, the eventual democratic nominee for president will be the person with the courage to throw Hillary Clinton under the bus once and for all by. Bye. Yeah. I think though several of 'em we're going to do that. I could see that being like an early litmus test in the democratic primary for just about anybody. So I'm going to sell because I, I don't think that's as momentous as people think it may be. Because here's the thing Hillary Clinton is is around because they don't have another day facto leader right now and Chuck Schumer and ANC Pelosi are less popular than Donald Trump. Okay. And so if Hillary Clinton is occupying the space you want as the national face of the Democratic Party and you want to be the national face the Democratic Party. He's gotta go. Yeah. And that's going to be true for any of the names I just mentioned, hey, one of them will get her endorsement and the rest won't and guess what? The rest who don't get our endorsement are gonna wanna do clever. Hillary has got to go. So I'm going to sell also. All right. G chums says John Roberts becomes Anthony Kennedy, two point. Oh, it's already Anthony Kennedy. Bye. Bye. FU Paladin says, if the major political parties were infectious diseases, GOP would be Ebola, and the Dem's would be the disease from twenty eight days later. So one is cataclysmic and the other one is cataclysmic Smick by. I'm going to sell to me the one with the GOP is crystal meth. Over a long course of time. It just eats away and deteriorates the person to the point that they are miss shape in the complexions gone. It looks like a totally different person, but you're still alive there. And I agree with the analogy of the Democrats are that's a airborne cataclysmic doomed. Apocalyptic contagion I agree with that. Anthony says, at least three members of congress will give a shout out truth bombs book. I'll buy that. How much have you read. For most of the audio book are let me think. If I think of members of congress, I know. I see Dave brat doing it. Thomas Massie just tweeted at doing it shoutout crews, just any just tweets, Facebook. Filibuster on the Senate. I don't believe crews. We'll do it. Okay. Well, there's a big battle in cruise world right now about whether he needs to conform more to the system or your course. This system does to you. That's what you said. I don't beginning, you know anybody. I think the conformity wing of cruise world is gonna say, hell. No, to that. I mean, it's the book is called truth. Bombs for a reason is I could see Massey doing it. I could see brat doing it. Whoever else tries to court, you could see Jim Jordan doing it if Kevin McCarthy's charge. Right? But I, I'm also not that as well known as maybe people think you there. You're nearing. You got to widen the net. This thing is so revelatory. You may be getting use the term loosely. This is why asked you may be getting a shoutout from the likes of Nancy, Pelosi pointed point. You know, we want the audience to buy this book, right? I'm pointing out that they might be pointing out. It could come from anywhere this. This is about the truth, right? I'm just saying a mention. That's why asked a mere mention you may getting pick. She's too toxic. It could come from anywhere where they just say, because you point out where everybody including yourself, right? Yeah, that's my point. I, we're being honest. Don't. Nobody gets including me. Nobody escapes this book on skates. Yes, because when I wrote this book and by the way it's failed for pre sales right now at Amazon dot com. Released to January fifteenth. When I when I wrote this book, I wrote it at a time that we weren't sure what our contractual status was going to be. And you know, I remember a conversation I had several years ago with Michelle Bachmann when she was running for president and she was kind of getting to the end of her run. Her campaign was starting to implode after such a promising start, and she called me at home one night and implored me to get not endorse a candidate kind of implored me to get off the sidelines and support your candidacy and in the hopes that if if I brought my network of. You know, associates and activists around the state. I know if I deployed them or encourage them, then that could help to reboot or campaign. And I told her, I don't know why you think I can help you win. If you don't believe you can win and she asked me what, what? What would show you that you believe I can win? And I told her, I wanna see you go for broke you and Marcus to take this evening. And sit around and think this is if this campaign is the last time we have a platform with the country to drop bombs. What scores need settled who needs called out. I wanna see you go for broke. 'cause I think that's the kind of effort. It's gonna take for you to reboot a campaign. That's that's imploded like yours s.. And of course you never took that advice and I did endorser, but I got to thinking when I wasn't sure contractually if I was going to have to do another line of work, I didn't want to leave this arena with things unsaid. I was fine. If if it was time my time in this was done, I've done my tour of duty. It turns out I'm not good enough and we can't grow enough in popularity. We all knew going in this Cup capitalism. There's no guaranteed outcomes, right? We're grown men here. We'll be disappointed, but you know, responsibility calls will find other means and motives and methods of feeding our families and live the rest of our lives. I just didn't want to exit stage left leaving anything unsettled, no wasted ammo. He has heard me say that the how many able you've heard me consult over the years, how many times you heard me say that time don't take any Emma home with you? Can't no wasted ammo. So I wrote this book at a time. I wasn't sure we were going to be doing this a year later. And I, I wasn't sure how much longer to have a platform where I could get people's attention. And so I was gonna say everything that needed to be said, so that if I walked away and everybody said, we don't have enough an audience, we can't market you. You're just too controversial to edgy. We appreciate your convictions, but they don't sell. Yes, good luck to you and I'd be fine with it. Provided I fired off every last piece of ammo I had and that's what this book is. And so no one is unscathed including its author, right? That's a lot of necessary flesh on the bone because for a second that you looked at me like, what are you doing here did, but that's what that's just talking about. Willis, look, guest, aspirational, Saint boy. I gotta give this Steve day and other. But I mean, I was I happened to be here in the room. When you did the audio version of one chapter when you when you unveil a story about yourself in the arena that was most people period would not do so publicly. That's all I'm saying and people if that's. Ryazan this book was written. That's one of the main themes I kept echoing when as you head edited as you as you wrote it, I kept pointing back to its why. If this book is a success, it'll because it isn't tribal. That's my point, dispense. I can see that. Okay. That's it. That is it, Aaron, we've talked enough, you have any final thoughts, you know, I wanna go back and just I find it really odd that taught assume that I put fruit crap in my drink. And then like two minutes later, he's holding on position that you're still pissed about the Wisconsin Iowa game. Oh, I just got a text from for my niece. That's very nice. Say, what. Never mind. I thought you took it black, which is why I did. And I know black coffee that can't go bed. You can sit that in a gas station in the middle of Nebraska. That's been burnt and it's it's still coffee, man. So no, I was just, I thought I was wrong. I had pig as a plaque, coffee, drinking guy, Todd, you know, there's nothing you can. You can do nothing to make that game, right. Nothing could lose to their own your Wisconsin fan him. There's nothing you get to make right. He's like the Democrats slit your throat or nothing, no shape. All right. Thanks for tuning in here today. If you like our podcast, click like or subscribe.

"Uh-huh. Now thought to Mr.. This in steam days raising a banner, vol- colors, no pale pastels. People should not be afraid if they go. The government should be a free maple. In and sensual delights from our mak- is liberty limited. And America. This is St. days. Greetings, happy Tuesday. Welcome this day. Show podcast addition here on Westwood One powered by crtv IM Steve days, Todd, and Aaron are here with me as well. We would love it if you would let us know what you think about what we think Steve, Steve day Stott calm, the Email address you can like us on Facebook. Follow us on Twitter at Steve dais show, and the last name is spelled DAC. It is a pop culture, Tuesday, and we're going to look at the intersection of culture and pop culture and conservatism, and a few minutes. Falem Makhalira is gonna join us, and he wrote the New York Times bestselling book that him and his wife actually did that exposed America to the true horrors and evils of Kermit Gosnell. And he has produced the movie adaptation of his book that is coming out nationwide on Friday, and we're going to talk to him and preview the film version that is coming your way in theaters nationwide. This Friday a little bit later on. In the podcast, however, some of you may have heard, and we've been teasing this some big news about the future of our podcast. I wanna spend the top of our broadcast today, making sure everybody is clear on the detail. So what was announced today, if you're if you're not yet aware and Glenn Beck announced this on his show this morning is crtv and the blaze have agreed to enter into a partnership to distribute and market this podcast together. So we are still the property of crtv. You will still get our TV show with crtv each and every day and that TV show will continue to be if you're a crtv subscriber, which you just go to crtv dot com. Use my name is a promo code dais DAC that show will continue to be focused on the topical political events of the day. And that will be the focus of that show each and every day at crtv dot com. This Westwood One pod. Cast that you're getting is being replaced by this new expanded show. We're going to be doing for crtv and the blaze each day. Now, here's the way this is going to work starting on Monday from noon to two eastern right as soon as Glenn Beck signs off on the blaze at noon. We come on for the next two hours after that from noon to two eastern. If you're a blaze subscriber, you'll get to watch it on Roku on the blaze cable channel at the blaze dot com. You'll get to watch the production live. You'll get to watch the archived production on demand later if you want to go that route. And that shows going to be focused more on broader cultural conversations that in a longer form, you know, broadcast more than the thirty minutes. We get on crtv with our television television episode every day. That's going to be a broader cultural conversation that the longer form broadcast permits us to just like we do with our. Podcast here today we have pop culture, Tuesday theology, Thursday by southern hold Wednesday, still have all of those things. They're just going to be bigger and more expansive in broader now because we have a two hour show and you'll get to watch that live of your ablaze subscriber from noon to tune noon to eastern every day at the blaze, their cable channel, the Roku channel, at cetera. If you're not a place of scribe or you can listen to it, live for free at the blaze dot com. You can listen to the audio only like you could any other radio show and you can call in and everything else, the blaze dot com, noon to two eastern every weekday. And then if you can't listen live and those that listen to this on demand later in the day, guess what the current subscription you have, whether it's tune Spotify, Stitcher, Google play. This podcast is still going to be there everyday. So what does it mean? It means you're getting the same podcast you were getting before more of it and available on more platforms than ever before. That's the biggest change of them. All Aaron, I have all those logistics, correct? Yep, that's correct. Basically, what we're saying is we're coming out of the closet, his radio show in a way. Yes, it's it. Yeah, incident, credible opportunity. And the bottom line is if you're already a crtv subscriber who likes listening to the longer form podcast as well along with crtv show every nothing's going to change. You just get more content for more bang for your buck. If you still want are heavy hitting analysis of the political world, you still need to keep the crtv show which I mean with the mid terms coming up. And then after that, there's no. I mean, there's no reason. To to think that anything's going to slow down in that neck of the woods. The bottom line is, again, you're getting more bang for your buck, and if you're not paying a buck, the new getting more stuff for free, which this is America. So that's the, that's the way we're headed anyway. So I've always kind of worn Online's when Aaron's talking about Todd, I've always kind of warned two hats in on one hand until Donald Trump broke my model, I had a pretty good knack for political algorithm analysis, data analysis, and people paid me pretty good money for it because I've got a pretty good knack for it. We're gonna, we're gonna. We're gonna make that what happens every day on crtv the reaction to the days, topical events in the political analysis at all. We're going to give our unique take on that everyday. That's going to be the focus at crtv show and this new more expanded podcasts. The blaze is gonna help distribute. This is going to be where I'm now going to take that the political analyst had off. I'm gonna put the hat on of cultural. Commentator and we're going to address the broader cultural conversations. We were already having on this podcast. We're gonna get to have them to an even wider audience. Now, courtesy of this partnership with the beliefs. And of course the there, they, they are very much despite that you separating in that since they're very much intertwined because for us to do on crtv within the next month in particular where the one who is dumbest, last loses will be front and center in order for us to have that political mantra that political diagnosis, you, you learn now, and you will learn only more on the audio podcast that we are doing on the blazes. Well, all of the spiritual psychological cultural research that goes into being to put together. Yes, bumper sticker like that. We didn't just pick it out of the air because it's fun. You've you have many mantras over the years, Steve. One that's becoming more and more private terrible people doing terrible things all the time. Well, it's we don't say that because it's fun. It's quite chilling actually, but we've we've done the research over time to put together that as that's about a solid as anything. We know that's a good way of looking at it Todd because I guess to narrow it down even further on crtv every day we're gonna do the math. On the blaze everyday. We're gonna show you how to do the math. Yeah, two totally different things k. so on the blaze, we're gonna do the math. I'm sorry on crtv. We're gonna do the math and then on the blaze everyday we're gonna show you how to do the math, why the math, we're tell you what the math is on crtv and they're gonna show you every day here with this longer podcast. Why the math is what it is. Exactly. That's exactly right. So we're looking for to that. And again, that's starts on Monday, and if you're a subscriber to this podcast, if this is your primary way of contacting us and in getting our content every day, you don't have to change anything this is going to be available to you. As in its current form, you'll likely will just beginning more of it, and it will sound more like a radio show like you might hear me and you've been hearing more and more ads in the podcast. Anyway, as the podcast is grown, but now that we're going over the blaze between the audiences at crtv and the blaze. The audience for this podcast is gonna grow quite a bit, which means when we have bigger audience. Means more people want you to know about their product. So it'll just sound like more of a traditional radio show to you. But other than that, if you're listening to us on, I tunes Stitcher, Spotify, etc. On demand, you're still going to be able to get that the same way you always have. That's the only thing that's going to change. That's fine. All right. Here we go. Three, two and one. Well, ask promise. We're joined now here today on Westwood One by falem macadear he is a producer of veteran, invested a veteran investigative journalist, and also the co writer of Gosnell the tr- the untold story of America's most prolific serial killer. The book was a New York Times bestseller a few years ago that has now become a major motion picture releasing nationwide on Friday. So it's a perfect topic for our pop culture. Tuesday podcast, hear on Westwood One and we welcome fail him to today's Steve day show falem. It's an honor to have you with us. You're on the podcast brother. How are you. Thank you problem meal. So the movie in its release on Friday. And I remember when I talk to you, I doubt you remember us because you did. I'm sure seven hundred interviews. I do the same thing when I release a book, but I remember we talked a lot about the blackout around the original Gosnell story and how much about about the life issue and the abortion argument. You and your wife who co wrote the book learned from this case really firsthand for the first time because of how one sided. A lot of the media coverage was or just ignored the controversy around Gosnell to begin with. Are you seeing something similar now with the release of your movie where there's a good portion of people that live in one part of America that just want to pretend this movie is not coming out in this story never happened. Are you seeing the same thing happened again, failed. Unbelievable. It just keeps going and going on. They are shameless Shiama, seamless him. You know, they, they, you know, just just giving example of the last couple of weeks DR we want to take advertising on NPR. One of the pay them good money. You know, real money advertise on MPR to sponsor. Yeah, but could advertise provided. We didn't call Gaza an abortion doctor. You know, even though NPR in their own news stories have called on abortion, doctor. So this is this is this is what we're all against base book yesterday, just bond thirty for thirty posts. You know about the movie and people writing about the movie. They just, they just wouldn't let us do it. You know, when we tried to raise money for Kickstarter, wouldn't let us read the money on Kickstarter. 'cause you can't use the word murder because I would have fanned their community standards. I said, I don't want to be part of any community doesn't that ally is a standard so we took indigo. Go with that. That's that's what we're up against it. You know, I mean, the cover up, it was covered up at the very beginning. It was covered up all true as Gaza Kelly. Then the trials covered up in the media refused to covered. This is the story of no wants told, which is why I'm so happy. We're bringing six hundred theaters this Friday. Go back again to the conversation I had about the books original release a few years ago and correct me if I'm wrong, I believe you and your wife. I remember you telling me you guys kind of came into this sort of abortion agnostic about the issue or the debate in particular, and this really opens your eyes to a side of the argument that you previously didn't have a lot of exposure to do. I remember that correctly. Yeah, yeah. Abortion neutral, you know, and you know, let me translate that for your for your listeners when you're neutral on abortion for auction. But you know, we didn't know what abortion was actually only researching a book and a movie when you actually have to find out what's what legal abortion is illegal. You don't want the government to tell a woman what to do or their own body. I mean, we're, if you're western freedom, loving person, you agree, the government shouldn't force you to do something you don't want to do with your body. Right? We agree with that, right? Yeah. Yeah. You know. You know, who's going to try and take someone's choice away, you know, but then you then start to find out what that choice involves, how. And how, how high with worksite in practice and how it works and what, what a so called? Good abortion. Is and. You know, the I, it was just truly shocking. I mean, the jury was shocked by what abortion was. That was the defense. The prosecution brought a good abortion and the kiss to say, you know, this is what a good abortion isn't. Here's white causing should be guilty. They were shocked by the details of what a real abortion. I mean, I have to say, I think Planned Parenthood are genius on the best marketing. Joe for abortion in, you know, by miles, you know, you honestly do not know no one in America originals. What what does this movie. Does it go into vivid detail about about this? Because some friends of mine are producing a movie written of based on a book written by a former Planned Parenthood worker who wrote whistle blowing expose about them a few years ago, and they just finished shooting the film and they're gonna bring it out next year and I can tell you, you know, we've had a couple conversations where they want to be very honest based on what the book shows goes on. It goes on inside the quote, unquote clinic. They wanna be very honest about it, but even some Christian pro-lifers are that are are fans of their worker are suggesting that maybe they ties it a little bit, you know, maybe people, you know, it would get lost if they really knew how graphic it was as again, people who kinda came into this, abortion neutral, and then we're confronted with the realities of the horrors of went on inside kermit's clinic. I mean, do you think that does the film go there? Does it really show what happens here? Our film does not go there. I'm was very delivered. Film PG thirteen because we need as large audience as possible. We need as many people as possible to see this. So not that that's liberty and you know the, the other people can make their own decisions. But you know, it's important that you that you that we will why audience possible? This is a law and order episodes. This is, you know, this is like NCIS is a courtroom drama, and we were very deliberate and people talk about what happens. But you never see anything. You know, it's not gory. It's not a harsh show. It's our biggest barrier making this movie successes and people will fear that this is a hard movie. It's not. So he is clearly cast than as a serial killer who happens to be an abortionist not in abortionist who is defined as a serial killer. Would that be an accurate distinction of how he's portrayed? Kermit Gosnell is in the film. That's a good question. I mean, you know, if you were seal killer abortion on abortion, finnick would be a wonderful place to be. You know, you can kill like babies to your heart's content. You can actually kill your patience too, by the way, and because the abortion such protected play in these Democrats left the city, you can kill off will for years for no consequences because people will not invest get an abortion clinic. I mean, no one, no health inspector, despite several people dying. Multiple people be mutilated by this on the body's literally piling up and his cellar. Not one health inspector pasta that door in seventeen years. The closing meals tonics up the road for using the wrong chemicals on Neil of having too much dust, but the bodies were coming out causing clinic every few months and nothing happened. So if you are killers good question, if you're a serial killer. By the way, when I when I talked about going there, I didn't mean visually with gore. I met in terms of how the the characters in the film discuss amongst one another, the the accuracy of the horrors that he is that he is guilty of. So the audience is forced to come to grips with the realities of what was actually going on inside of that clinic. No, no, we do. We do. We do go there and we do look at those issues. You know, one of the big things with the smell was one of the big kiss that the prosecution almost ruined their own kiss by introducing a legal abortionist and exclaiming, the legal abortion was because the jury suddenly realized for the first time how close a legal abortion was to GAAS mel's activities. The wasn't a huge gap and printed wheel died in their mind. I mean, there's a scene, you know, the good abortion doctor. The professional born doctor was asked to Staubach's your professional credentials. I the after many abortions have you done? And in the film, we have a doctor seeing thirty thousand right? Which is an enormous number in the actual trial and the trial transcripts. It was forty thousand the jury gasped when they heard that in the trial, they. Actually. Got, and you know, then they started asking about babies born alive. It's after triplets cetera, and they, they, they, you know, they. That was Birch shock in the courtroom. When the. The good abortion doctor was asked. What happens if a baby is born alive? And she says, we would give comfort care and everyone's going, what's comfort Carol, these germs comfort care. So the ASO, what's comfort care. And she said, we put the baby side, keep it warm, and eventually it will pass and the jury sort of setting going. So it's legal, let a baby die of starvation dehydration. But if you're causing kill the Bibi with the the knife or pursers, then that's murder. It's like, well, what's this thing with the difference really for for a lot of the jury. So we go there into what is who's the real serial killer here, and is he really a killer? And while it's what the society accepted, what don't they accept. It's fascinating because what I hear you saying is the local prosecutor was doing everything they could to avoid avoid having abortion defined as murder. And so they talked about, here's a sanitized version of it, but the but the nuances were so murky that they almost a murderer get off from murderer because they wanted to avoid calling murder what it was. That's what I hear you saying. Right, that's that's happened. Yep, that's that's. And that's at the heart of the film. How do you do that down that advance? You can't on the ounce. You know it's very, yeah. Yeah. You end up. You know, destroying definitions life, destroying the of for law, strolling definition of murder and making conc- almost away with murder. One of the things I remember from your book I was fascinated by is. Is the fact that Gosnell clinic went unregulated for years, even though in Pennsylvania, the practice of abortion is heavily regulated, like how many days waiting periods, things of that nature. So in other words, legislatures, the legislature in Pennsylvania and the Republican governor, Tom Ridge there for so many years, signed quote, unquote, pro-life bills, and laws that regulated the practice of abortion, but then they never actually followed up with any of their regulations. And so for years Kermit Gosnell just lie falsified and lied about x-rays and sonograms. And you know, in utero records to say that the baby was this old when he wasn't this old, the baby was conceived in rape when he or she was not. And the reason why I think that's important is because I'm sure this is outside of your expertise, but it's an important distinction for my audience. We have. We have since Roe versus Wade as a pro-life movement. We have spent an my mom nearly aborted me. I'm forty five years old. I'm old is Roe v Wade. We have spent my entire lifetime trying to incrementally regulate this from existence, but we are relying number one. I mean, we don't have prenatal registry, so the people and we wouldn't want that. That's a huge invasion of privacy obviously. So we're relying on people who killed children for a living to accurately report their own to self report, essentially against their own states regulations. And then in the state of Pennsylvania, what the hell's the point of passing all these regulations when you're not gonna, do any regulating. I think your book exposes unintentionally, I know but huge reteach fallacy of the pro-life movement for the last forty five years failing. Yeah. Also there's a whole thing. You know, the also Dan decided that they wouldn't carry out those regulations wouldn't follow those regulations. Tom Ridge eventually decided that that you know what law that says, you have to inspect an abortion clinic every year. That doesn't really mean that because he was told you can't win Pennsylvania unless you're moderate. Remember back before twenty sixteen when you how to be moderate squishy Republic into Pennsylvania told to believe that. So he he, he was the one who stopped the investigations, stop the inspections of abortion clinics and the only into Gaza clinic because he because he was selling opioid drugs, opioid prescriptions, if the d. investigation uncovered a local cop who smart on covered him apart from not not no government inspector gone and not plenty for seventeen years. That's incredible. That's absolutely in credible. That's incredible falem that. So that's that's a willful. That's just that is when you have just deciding a government, you're just not going to adjudicate prosecute and apply the law. You're willfully doing that right. Yeah, they just decided that the law wasn't that they weren't going to enforce the law. So this idea you need more regulations for something more regulations, more regulations, they can just decide not to not to enforce it. What was the biggest challenge getting this movie made the last four years. You know, what was the biggest challenge? And I think the biggest challenge was was you know, I a talent is all the mainstream media. If tried to shut this done from Kickstarter, not lying to cry, fun to NPR refusing to. Advertise fifth book funding thirty of around, you know, it just goes on and on and on. This is one of the most successful crowdfunding movies ever and thirty thousand people gift, two point, three million. We've never been covered by any of the mainstream media and they love crowd funding projects. No, they don't want anything to do. So it's opening on Friday. Hollywood doesn't want this to be me. It'd need people to come out this weekend to show Hollywood that the cover up stuff here. What about the movie? Are you the most proud of falem. I think the scenes were, you know where we show media cover up. I think scenes where we have Janine Turner's, a wonderful actress, play the good abortion doctor. I think that's a pivotal scene. I think I'm probably of everything actually, no, it making it is quite an achievement, getting it released. So few films are made so released, and we're so happy to be three doing that. Total non sequitur question before I let you go, but you know, I'm a superman fan boy. He was like my masculine role model growing up. Okay. So you know if if it was up to me, we were gonna. I was gonna walk down the aisle to John Williams, superman score, my wedding, but my wife wouldn't permit it. All right. So so total non sequitur fan. Boy question I got asked dean Cain seems like a really cool guy, right? I mean, what's he like in real life? He's in one of the nice people you've ever met. Basically, quite simply, he's he's and he's got time for everyone. He's always stopping for photographs always talk into funds. He's just at all run. Nice guy. He's willing to work with good. Did you hear that? Falem macadear is the man who co wrote the book with his wife that blew the lid off of the Kermit Gosnell story. And now the movie opening this Friday nationwide. Gosnell that trial of America's biggest serial killer, and it's been an honor having you with us on this topic and everything all the work you've done to expose this story. Thank you very much and God bless you, brother. We appreciate it. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you so much for having me on. Let's get some reaction what we just heard from falem accolades. So Tom, let me start with you. What stood out to you about this conversation? We just had with falem going back to the beginning. When you talked about that blackout? I experienced this firsthand when when this was going on, I was a reporter at the Moines Register and this this story was simultaneously everywhere and nowhere. At the same time, there was an utter blackout at the divine register and our. If I, if I name the name, you would know who are wire editor was at the time, and I just flat out emailed on him. And I said that this is inexcusable that day after day after day, this has been out there for weeks. If not months, we have nothing about this coverage in it, and I just wanted to see what he was going to say. And he said, well, this is a local story. And I say, I was a Matthew Shepard lost. I provided examples of why that's not a standard that I am certain. You could not just page through our paper today. You would not be able to justify that. Any said he got back to me and said, are you calling me a liar? And I told him, I said, yeah, I am. This is head Bundy and Geoffrey Dahmer aren't local stories. Yeah. So you can now you can all understand why I'd might create never progress that because I have conversations like that with just flat out liars. It's funny you bring up that I brought up the name, Matthew Shepard because I had this exact same experience when I worked register on the desk win night in a story came across the wire of two gay men in Arkansas who had kidnapped to preteen boy took them back to their trailer and they raped him to death. And this happened in initially the report identified them as homosexual, and then. In its follow up, substitutes did not. And you know, this was actually going on during the time of the Matthew Shepard controversy, and I don't have a problem with covering what happened to him. That's a tragedy. But my question was, why isn't this tragedy worthy of covering? It's a little bit like I thought Matt Walsh at the daily wire asked a brilliant question yesterday on Columbus Day, which is I have, no, I have no issues with your criticisms of some of Columbus's behavior. I'm just trying to figure out why the cannibalism of the indigenous people doesn't seem to offend you. How come, how come the white European acting like a douchebag bothers you. But the indigenous people keeping children in cages so they can boil them, eat them. Later doesn't seem to it doesn't seem to strike your fancy as intolerable in any way. That's kind of what you're alluding to, right? Yeah, we find out even later that the double standard was worse. I, it just for example, at Matthew Shepard and to his credit a day reporter said that this this was. A drug deal. That was gone bad. It was not simply targeting. So there's always. Ridiculous amount of narrative, choking. What you are receiving in terms of the news you actually see or the great void that there is of things that you're not seeing. What about you. Yeah, and it is. It was striking. I remember that too. There was very little coverage about what what was going on surrounding Kermit Gosnell and the absolute frustration that this is a this is one of the biggest store is. Of our lifetimes. Honestly, it really is, and it's just it's, it's, they're shibboleth. It is what they, it's the hill that they will die on good word and it will. It will never these types of things will never be covered and understanding that in having that hit you in the face, having that hit you in the face again with the center for medical progress, videos, undercover videos, having that hit you in the face. Again, when as Todd brings up the example all the time, watching the congress, you know, members of congress with the faced with that edit that type of evidence. Just, yeah, just whitewash. What's going on in areas like this. That is so frustrating. I hope though I know that falem. Said that, you know, the biggest obstacle is getting people to understand that this is not a horror movie. I hope though that they don't, they don't. What's the word? I hope they don't stare allies this this film. This needs to hit people in hit people hard. And I hope that it's able to do that even if even within this kind of courtroom drama genre that that I believe falem was kind of describing this film. I hope though the gravity of what happened there is able to hit a larger audience than it did at the time because of the media. When the trial was going on, we were doing Cindy nationally syndicated radio for Salem at the time. And I, I would read aloud. The testimony at night. Of what people were testifying had been happening in this clinic for years, and you included it all in one of your book? Yeah, it's it's actually in a portion of it is in a Nevada supply in various essentially dance dances. This same jig that Hitler dance at the shops alise in the winter of nineteen forty when they took out Paris, that's essentially the victory lap that he takes with the Kermit Gosnell testimony. And it is beyond abhorrent, and I think you're dealing. This is where this is where you're dealing with a level of spiritual malevolence that there isn't a political cure for, and this is why we, as a pro-life movement haven't ended this yet because we are attempting to use the political process in order to apply our spiritual and moral convictions as opposed to. Letting our spiritual and moral convictions compel the political process to respond. And so we're out doing things like father, Frank, Pavone a couple years ago, it priest for life was advocating. A Bill was in Idaho Montana where they agreed. They wait NS decides children before they aborted them. Yeah. Like imagine standing up in Berlin a Nesta size Jews before you before you give them this. I climax. Okay. I don't know that they make Schindler's List of he. That was his stance, right? It will we anesthetize them. I made Josefino character and Nesta size them before we killed them with that with they make a movie about a guy that was his big moral stance. Probably probably not. So we've spent going on five decades now on all these regulatory practices. That always rely on the government that is advocating and funding the killing of children and those that are doing the killing to self report and the governments that are funding and allow in permitting the killing of children to regulate to to follow through on these regulations. And here we set in the state of Pennsylvania. And what did you hear fail Makhalira say for seventeen years, not one. Pennsylvania state regulator walked in set foot in Kermit Gosnell clinic while he falsified x Ray records and prenatal records and ultrasound records in order to get around all of the spin, they what they were fake regulations. So if you're if you're a member of the pro-life community in Pennsylvania and you fought for all these regulations, congratulations. Here's your sign. You wasted your time, you accomplished nothing you, you accomplished less than nothing. And this is what we have spent the bulk of our time on as a pro-life movement for the last five decades as tell me how we would be any further behind. If we would have spent all of this time fighting to define what life is and when life begins as opposed to regulating abortion, would we be any further behind than we are now? I don't see how that's I don't. You can argue that we wouldn't be any further ahead. There's no way we'd be any further behind and how can you know that? That's not the argument. The other side wants to have. Did you hear what else failure? Makhalira said, which is the prosecution nearly lost this case because they were so adamant and not not proving a blanket statement that abortion is murder that they tried to say, here's a safe abortion versus what Kermit Gosnell did and the and they were so close together. And so closely align. And there was so much crossover between the two that they nearly let this guy off the hook because what did they. Wanted to avoid saying they were killing that. Abortion is always the killing of a human being and they simply wanted to say only doing it the way Kermit Gosto was doing, it was killing and and the attempt to thread that needle to have a camel pass through the eye of needle. If you get the expression here, their attempt to try to do this with with their jurisprudence almost let Kermit Gosnell walk right out the front door yet. When you sum summit up that way, it makes me think of that original episode of black mirror with the prime minister and the pig, and the moral of that story isn't how Macab that particular instances. It's just how much the people drank it up and pop popcorn. And that's what that's the point. The serial killer wanted to make not that people will do anything. Yeah, there's a, there's always a dark underbelly, awful one to humanity. It's that when exposed to it, a lot of people. Will pull up a chair and say, tell me more instead of a lot of their words against it. We'll just kind of be, well, I got to kind of check that box in polite society. But I mean, that's what's chilling about kids in the smart people tell you that everybody's doing Malek nowadays. You will gladly go down into the valley of been Henham and stand in line and wait your turn to throw your children into the fire as a tribute to him as well. I think that's actually what broke father Pavone. I think you'd agree with me that over the course of a long career, he's fought about his harsher anybody. And I think he just looked into that MIR a few too many times and I think he grew despondent. I really think that's what happened there. I mean, I wouldn't point out the moral inconsistency of someone who's moral standard. I didn't have any respect for. No, no. I think you pointed out was fair because it was deeply disappointing. He teaches struck me as a man who. It wasn't just a pure political salad. I think he reached the bottom. I think he just really cracked.

Big beef is a four piece folk rock band from Brooklyn, New York in may twenty nineteen. They released their third album UFO f- to critical acclaim pitchfork named it best new music in this episode singer. Adrienne lengthier, and drummer, James crtv, Kenya, breakdown song, traumatic album called cat cattails. I major yet and I like time saying in right in big thief. When I first started writing cattails, we were just outside of Seattle at this studio called bear creek. And we had a bunch of songs that we were planning on recording, but the space was really inspiring, and I found myself kind of writing and all the little pockets of time, and I had just gotten this twelve string guitar that I had bought when I was on a road trip by myself in New Mexico at this little punch out, then I brought it with me to the session and one night after we'd finished recording. Everyone was kind of going to bed. I stayed up late and just started playing this chord progression. That picking pattern is one of my favorites and is particularly fun to play that on the twelve string. I just played it over and over again. And lyrics just started pop Matt. I was missing Minnesota, where I grew up, and I was thinking about my great grandma. She died when I was about twenty and her name's violent. Neck. Drain. Violets is by place. I'm just picturing, her eyes and picturing, her playing piano, playing guitar playing bass. She picked up the electric bass in the last few years of relief in her eighties. So I was just thinking of childhood, and the way that she kind of took care of us, we'd like paint with her, and she had a dune buggy, and we'd like grad horses. And when I think about her in this place northern Minnesota, you know, it makes my heart feel like open and heavy and sad and happy all at the same time. No. I stayed at pretty late because I was excited I had this buzz from this song that was coming. So I just woke up early in the morning and finished all the words and just played it over and over again, maybe like thirty times or something I went to bed, and there was no song I woke up and there was a song. I'm James and I play the drums, big fief we had planned on recording another song that was on our list. And I was just like maybe she just play this one for a little bit. And I dislike walked into live room, and James was with me. It's like eating breakfast and a gen was showing me the song and probably played it from you like twice. She was like excited. And like smiling and kind of like standing up and bouncing. It just implied make the drums bounce like that. We didn't talk at all about degree. That's true. We didn't talk like, once there was no talk about form. But James, and I had been going on a lot of runs together during this session, and that one point I was like this is probably such good practice for interlocking rhythms, because we're actually like breathing and running in time, like at the same pace. So I feel like it's not just about the specific groups like the pattern you're playing as much as it was just like we're like walking in the same step. And so we messed around like next to each other for a few minutes. There's usually this magic that happens right in the beginning stages of forming a song the first few times, you actually played all the way through. And it feels good. And I was right on the cusp. I had just sort of played it enough to know all the words, James, and I were just like hanging on, like, felt like I could fall off the horse at any moment, like forget, one of the words because they were so fresh or mess up the groove or something. But we never did we just like held on. Refinish. It was noticed we just like whoa. What just happened? And then before we knew it dumb monks. The engineer he had sneakily been like setting up mics rolling before you even thinking about it. Dom had captured it, it was just like that felt Tomase ING. Oh, wait. You got that you recorded that. Oh, cool. So was just like a one taker. What I keep thinking of it, as is like this gust of wind blew through the studio that was just like this magic wind and the band when they first heard the take renew right away pretty unanimous, like, oh, this feels amazing those kind of undeniable, like this is part of the record. So James, and I recorded vocals guitar and drums. And then max and buck added their parts after for this song max tried some like normal ish base. You know, like, boom, boom, kind of stuff, but it was just kind of like, oh, this doesn't make it feel any better like weighs. It down doesn't bring like the lightness that we all we're like already in love with. So he started laying these drones with his base. Access this pedal called the plus pedal, which is sort of just a sustain pedal for guitars or bases or any audio you put through it. Interest silo who is producing the Hugh is guiding max of like try some high stuff now like do like a few takes of just really high stuff. Okay. Now, do one that's like super simple find, like notes that are just beautiful. And then everyone kind of just sat down, and just had a bit of editing process or just listened to that moments really cool. And then we would just like save all the moments really liked just looking for like an enhanced feeling of good feeling. That's already there. Max and Adriane are performing those piano, parts simultaneously on two different pianists in the studio. This is like a very quick idea just like, oh, maybe this will work sort of thing, and maybe it won't. And so we're not gonna like labor over it also I don't know how to piano. So I was just kind of randomly put my fingers on the keys. We were just like bringing more energy, like just bringing that up listed spirit because that's actually what we're feeling. It was a blast real laughing. It was ridiculous. You're standing up, neither of us knew what notes were really hitting, and it was just like a really fun. And so that energy translates into the recording. Bucket. One point in session. He was staying in treehouse at their creek. There is a little studio up there with pro tools, and he kind of took to doing some of his parts they're isolated and then bringing them back. He's got such a specific fewing. Even just in those notes, you can feel the swing. So beautiful, and I think he's sort of like playing off your melody. And you don't you don't need a new when you. Okay. Everything that I write is auto biographical in a way, but there's also fiction. I'm not just trying to convey like my personal experience in northern Minnesota with my grandma. It's something deeper. So there's lots of memories and lots of montages of things that are real are that I'm like trying to describe. But there's elements of like, also imagination and magic in keeping thread of story. This character. She I Caroline, she's hearing of somebody in her life is very close to their time passing and saying, I'll be there like, I'm just going to go. You're there to sort of hold them into the next round, hold them through that transition remind them like the sweetness of this time. But also the fluidity of everything. My own true. Feelings about an experience become more, vivid and clear to me when they're described through amorphous testicle ones. It's kind of, like when you take a picture of a sunset with your iphone, and it's crisp and it's HD, but then you take a picture on, like an old film camera. And it's all like distorted and but somehow that picture is more accurate to the feeling of that sunset. Mike grandma's house up in northern Minnesota. When we were there, felt carefree it was a really special time. And since then, that house has been sold in that chapters closed, but it's in capsulated in my memory in this beautiful way that I can return to. And now here's cattails by big thief in its entirety.

"Uh-huh. You are now thought to move. This in steam days raising a banner bowl colors, no pale pastels. People should not be afraid. They should be a free people rights. In and essential to rights from our mak- is liberty limited. And America. This is steamed. Greetings, happy, Wednesday. Welcome in the Steve day. Show podcast addition, you're on Westwood One. My name is Steve day, Todd, and Aaron are here with me as well. Our podcast each day is powered by crtv speaking of which we just concluded our television production for crtv today, Tom, let's give the audience a preview of what's coming up today. It's TV dot com. Well, I know you know, when you tell us about reader feedback, Steve, that people call you the only ones who talk about it from that angle or say things this way, and that's all really flattering. So we really go there this time we, we diagnose something we got in those weeds and brought to light something that you're gonna be amazed. We've figured out right at the top of the show, Hillary Clinton's, a bad person. Yeah. I would. I've grown tired of thinking of everybody. I disagree of thinking of people I disagree with automatically two dimensional agreed one is because you know, I, my faith convicts me of doing that right to is because. Because my faith convicts me of doing that. You're not gonna reach lost people if you just make stereotypical two dimensional assumptions about. Absolutely. I'm glad you put it that way, but it's because I totally agree with you that all the more confidence and saying what I just said. Yeah, and we did that. We, we kind of went down the checklist with that exercise today, and I think it's definitely something if you've not yet washed her show on crtv you you wanna hear and see that exchange today. Crtv dot com. What about you air. The roundtable talk about a alarium pool a little bit. We touch on that. I mean, we spend probably about the first ten minutes or so talking about this poll, and I'm not going to say any more about it. But if if this poll is true, it is. I mean you were talking about it during the break, Steve, and we, we won't go there again, but it is it. It's pretty funny. I think you'll get a laugh out of him this this poll is the greatest poll of my career. It's it is. It is certainly the most fun pull of my career. Yes, we're definition of fun. Thanks. Me. Sad established a long time ago. There's a next t. shirt. You have a weird definition. He said, well, if you want to know what I mean by a weird definition of fun, it's sitting there for you to have fun with today at crtv. Crtv dot com. Promo code days is how you can become a subscriber. If you're not one yet using that name as a promo code and you'll get a discounted subscription. That'll get you all of the crtv programming. Our show the entire lineup every day for just about a quarter a day for a year. Crtv dot com. Promo code ace. Crtv dot com. Promo code days are, let's get to it. It is by Ciller hold Wednesday. So we're going to touch on a myriad, a plethora of different topics today. Erin, we'll throw out a series of hopefully interesting too provocative statements, Todd, and I with and some of them may be suggested by those of you in the audience Todd, and I will then determine whether we're buying or selling that hopefully have at least one good reason why once per show, we are allowed to say that particular proposition is so beneath my intellectual Cape. Ability. It doesn't merit me taking a position because holding for any reason other than that is considered a punk out a clear violation of the dude code for which you will be severely punished. Put one point of order. Some of them will be provided by our listeners. I mean, this is like Aaron mcintyre's little sweatshop. He's opened up that recently. Well, really, I, it's, he's Bishop Don, magic one. The pimp over there. I, it's not that I'm, it's not that I'm lazy. It's just that I like our listeners. Yes, there we go. Okay. So we're going to start off on a really positive optimistic note here. Jacob Arthur says, the Justice in the mold of Scalia or Thomas will never again be seated on the supreme court. House also. Hotel because. The logic suddenly. Opens up. It's so obvious, right? If if whoever passes away. In the next couple of months. I mean instantly the it says. Amy, Coney Barrett. Assuming that's who she hardly Todd's. Erzen's logic says that no actual logic says that you. I mean for all the reasons that we just learned actual actual different than swamped logic, though only takes like that. His different than small black. Nice. I back when I was at the devoid register. I had a congress say Shen dead kind of crystallized notion to political notion in my head that I've used on the show before it's been a while, but the status quo is the status quo until it isn't anymore. And sometimes things are just in fact, so freaking obvious, and there's enough people who in the right position who are just finally. Air New speak about it, the Holy Spirit intervenes. So it's as ripe as ever for that to happen. I don't think the answer to this question is cut and dried either way. I'm glad you went I I was going to take the opposite view of what you took simply because I really think this is a fifty fifty question and I can make an intellectual case either way. So it was going to let you make one intellectual case. And then I was gonna make the other. I think the the best part of the intellectual case you just made is it would. It would take something spiritual. I think for that to happen because the the case for why won't is most Republicans. And yes, I said, most are progressives. That's number one. Most of them are progressives. All of the Democrats are. And. A lot of the conservative legal community. Prefers justices, and they're the ones that do a lot of these recommendations. And they prefer judges like cavenaugh. Gorsuch things record as a federal judge was overall more conservative, but had no pro-life record at all. And I think you saw that in the way the conservative legal community went to battle to lobbied for cavenaugh to get the nomination over Amy Barrett. I think. I would've told you forty-eight hours ago. I thought it was fifty fifty at best that cavenaugh will survive this confirmation fight. I now think it's about seventy percent at at worst that he does. I think this thing is become begun to unravel. The Democrats the Republicans did would I advise them to do on Monday which is stop getting into back and forth or coming up with conspiracies and just call the bluff. Say, we'll give you the camera. Come onstage. Tell us what you got and now looks like she doesn't want to do that. So a lot of people are going to say, let's just move on then. I think that. I think if he were to go down though, I don't have to. I, I don't think Amy Barrett would be the would be the place they would go at all. I think you'd get an even bigger squish and they would probably be a female, but a bigger squish female. So I think based on the status of the conservative legal community. In the way that it lobbied for cavenaugh the way it lobbies for Thomas Hardiman. Okay. We're the ones that lobby for Amy, Coney Barrett. It wasn't. It wasn't. It wasn't the federalist society. It wasn't a conservative legal community. So. From a practical standpoint, I think the answer is no, but I also agree with the analysis that the status quo is the status quo till it's not anymore. And we have seen some impractical things that on both the right and the left that appear to have no explanation other than some spiritual force at work or component on one side or the other. And that's why I think it's it can happen in the scenario that tot articulated. But if I can promise you, Brett cavenaugh goes down the federalist society in those conservative legal people aren't at the White House. The next day urging Amy Barrett, I promise you that. What would happen that's true gender gender face says, Iran, will begin its revolution before that his way along. How do we tell when a country is in revolution? Because both these countries are in unrest. I mean, that's my question to, you know. Tell me when you think the American revolution started, do you think it started at the at the Boston massacre the revolt against the red coats, they're dead started the Boston tea party? Did it start at Lexington and concord and a revolution, a civil war? Yeah, that's another good point. All right. So because depending on. When you think a revolution began at the very least what you're seeing in Iran, are the seeds being planted for potentially feels. Here's my answer to this question. My answer to this question is. If the United States. Will will support. Then I would guess Iran. Without any US support, I would guess what you've seen in those two countries as far as it will go. That's my answer. I think so Venezuela before, correct? No. Iran will begin its revolution before Venezia. Okay. Sal. And this has to do with myself diagnosis of my naievety in the. In terms of the war in Iraq. I, I believed it was likely then in that moment and others did as well notions of Arab spring. We're talking about moments that are right. I just got done talking about one. There have been many moments within the Islamic world that would be ripe for revolution, and you know what choke the life out of all of them. The religion that will still be dominant in Iran, either way that that's the thing. You can't have anything resembling real revolution there unless you are revolting against Islam. I think that's generally true. The reason why just to clarify the reason why I selected Iran, I don't think you'll see successful revolution in either country without without US support. Okay. The reason I selected a Rondo is because there there's a, there's a specialities to Iran's is situation as Llamas that put it at odds with other major sectors of the Islamic world. Okay. I mean, the the Saudis and the Jordanians would love to see revolution in Iran, every bit as much as we would all be maybe for different reasons. Okay. But Iran is. Iran is the all right of the Islamic world I could use that analogy. Iran is the mother Jones, think progress of the Islamic world where a lot other places in the Islamic world that would like Islam, the dominate as well or like those people are fiends and bad and we don't like them. Okay. And so that's where I think there's there's more it's not as cut and dried there than it is in many other Middle Eastern Islam countries where you're right, the religion is the factor in Iran's case religion, their their version of Islam as a factor. Why there are other Islamist including other hobbyists in Jihadist supporting nations who wouldn't mind seeing revolution in Iran because they don't like the Iranians down like the and if you them in a way they're sort of they're sort of the Samaritans of the Islamic world because they are Persian and they. Not Aarab and they probably hold onto that. Yeah, that's great analysis. Tecmo super bacon says, Christian yelich wins the National League MVP. If there was, I just saw ESPN last night, a screen shot of like the. I mean, I think there were ten guys. On there that they said are what's in the conversation right now, and yellow was one of them. Also fellow brewer Lorenzo Cain, but I will say that the tear that he has been on lately just hitting for his second cycle of the year. If if the brewers do end up overcoming the cubs in winning the division, I will buy this. I think it's as likely as any other choice. Well, let's see. He's got. He leads the National League in batting average by one. His overall war, although statue look at our great, he's on a team that's really good. I guess I'll buy. Joffrey says, Democrats sweep congress in twenty eighteen in remove Trump, but fail to keep either house in twenty twenty lining up four more years under forty, six as more dude. Nothing is. I think what he means is that impeach Trump but they don't move him. But the first part suite meaning they win both houses. Yeah, I will sell on that. I think. That. I think there is a Blue Wave. And then there's not in what I mean by that. I think that we have. We have already seen evidence in special elections in other places. We've already seen the evidence you would typically see in midterm elections of a wave from the other side of the party and power. All the evidence of that is there. What we have right now though. And so to say there's no Bluewave I totally disagree with that. And it's not because it's my opinion. 'cause the maths, not in your favor, the you're, you're arguing against math. I'm not into arguing against Constance in general, is a Christian. I strive for transcendence and Constance. They're the basis of my worldview. Main either God's supernatural raised his son from the dead or didn't. Right. That's a pretty cut and dried constant pretty formula if that happened or didn't. If it did then, listen, everything else we have to say. And if it didn't, then you know, were the biggest fricken losers in your culture, which one or the other? No. In between. Okay. I like that. I like those kinds of propositions. You know. In this case. You have to consider though you have a unique situation where the Senate map is overwhelmingly in favor of the party opposite of the wave. So that already mitigates some of the impact of the wave. I guess the muse an analogy. In Iowa twenty five years ago, they had massive flooding on the river here in town in the riverbank down there on grand and sixty third Ren, and and that whole thing overflowed. And we saw, as I mean, I wasn't living here then you probably were you remember what those times were k- we add severe flooding in our state, not not quite as heavy rain as what you saw nineteen Ninety-three we had severe flooding and rain in our state a few months ago. One of my are one of my former co workers, local radio swept up and died. Okay. You know there was a case of couple's house literally got so flooded it. It blew up their gas line in the home exploded, right? And but there was a wave there was a flood, but after the nineteen Ninety-three floods, they, they built so many safety mechanisms on that one riverbank the grand river is at the grand river down. There is one of the raccoon river. Thank you that one riverbank down there that it was still flooding. There were still lots of damage we even had a death. Okay. But the catastrophic damage was mitigated by the by the by the pushback of of of the system. That's what we have now, it's not that there's not a Blue Wave. It's that the map is so locked in on one hand, there are too many places where Democrats can't win no matter who they nominate and Republicans can't win, no matter who they nominate period period period like it doesn't matter. Like you know die. I totally disagree with what Eric Erickson just tweeted a minute ago. He tweeted by this time next week, Diane Feinstein's going to be so discredited from this professor for thing, she'll lose election. I totally agree with that. Now she could be extremely discredited. And then after she's discredit on this president, he's being the teen, yes, votes. She could be totally discredited on this president for thing. And then after that she can be seen on camera, literally handing her panties, vitamin Putin Republicans. She's not losing guys, but she cannot lose. But that election was held in the primary, there's there is nothing. Nothing. Nothing. Nothing she could do child molestation charges, and I mean it nothing absolutely frigging nothing. The maps, the kung FU is to straw. I second that won't happen and the and. And and you saw with the pull, it came out yesterday and Texas. All the sudden Ted Cruz went out there and Ron minded. Everybody, bathe or work doesn't like guns and and. And all of a sudden awhile they remember we live in Texas and always down by nine. That was never really. I don't think race was always about whether that was gonna be close enough that that might negate some of Ted Cruz coat-tails nationwide. Things are too balkanised, and so there's a system of resistance fleshing up against up against the wave. And then there is the fact that the Democrats mitigate their own way because of the crazy factor. There is a crazy there is a there is an element of voters who hate the Republican party. I know what I'm talking about guys. What are these poker's? One of them. I go to bed at night and I'm like, Luther, cursing Rasmussen, my nighttime prayers, God, cursed the Republicans. But I can't just hand my kids over to this level of crazy. I just can't do it. Some in this conflicted thing where on one hand, I am trying to end a party I'm act and I'm not lying about my next book is an effort to end the Republican party. That's essentially what it is and to convince you that needs to be ended. It needs to be. We need to do this like they did in that movie Miller's crossing, you take the traitor out there in the middle of the woods, and you just put him down right there. Okay. Okay. And just leave the body. Take the cannoli. That's the next book. That's truth. Bombs really is in a nutshell, short version of truth bombs and the GOP put it down once and for all. But on one hand, I'm going to try to end it on the other hand, I feel this poll to go in there in fifty days and just vote straight ticket Republican. Because I, I don't. How do I can't? I can't. I can't live with people. Don't wanna live with me on any level and they, they let me know that all the time. How do I, how do I just do I buy that? And it's different than when Trump ran because I have to his character to because he's he's the candidate for office here. It's more of a referendum kind of an election. Collectively, who do you want in charge? Well, my answer is neither. But one side one side is poisoning my water table. The other side literally is doing a home invasion. And they don't take prisoners, I, what do you do with that? Right. So because of the crazy factor of the Democrats, they mitigate their own wave as well. And you will see some of these Republican voters right now who are totally despondent and don't care. You will see some of them come home the last couple of weeks because of the crazy factor because Democrats have done absolutely nothing at all for the last two years to show any mainstream face of their party on any issue at our any accommodation of any differences. America has with them period. So there is a wave, but the map is working against the wave having its full catastrophic damage, and then the Democrats mitigate their own wave by the fact there's so much poison injected into it. People feel as if this is this is not a normal storm that I can tolerate. I gotta fight back and push back against that. Storm that's way too long of an explanation, but. No, that's that's one of the. That's one of the better analysis. I think that we've had on this show. Which is why I also Sal, and it's why here at this point and projecting on how things are likely to go. I, I actually think Republicans will maintain both houses and but the house will be like. Narrow margin. Eagles a says something that is probably impossible for any of us to answer, but we'll go with hurricanes are scarier than earthquakes. Now, on the one hand, we live in the mid west, so we know what bad storms are not to the level or length that hurricanes are. I don't know if you guys have been in an earthquake California's a kid when my stepdad was so yeah, I remember them. I have not experienced an earthquake. I don't think in Florida, and I remember hurricanes when I lived there, but I lived in Orlando, which is pretty and right. So you can't actually answer this. I would say I wouldn't like earthquakes very much. So I would say I would sell this. I think I'd sell as well because you can't escape an earthquake. They just hit. You can escape hurricane. You can prepare for it. If you're in the middle of it, that's a conscious choice, scared, whatever. I don't care. I mean, you know, you know, you're if you're living on the San Andreas fault line or not, whether you are not, but you know there's no tectonic shifts. Downstream three hundred miles away. You know where the geologist come to you and say, guys, we've got a her. We've got an earthquake watch now, you know what I'm saying? Now, you know what I'm saying? So yeah, for that reason, the suddenness of it. I, I would agree, I and I and let's say this, this is not to mitigate anybody that's suffered anything of any calamity, our tragedy, the result of a hurricane. We're just simply saying that we at least have some form of a warning system, and there's some form of a warning system with hurricanes as well. But it's not nearly as precise it is or with or quicks as well. But it's not nearly as precise and exact. All right. This is from bear nj. He says, the only organization that ignores its own doctrine is tone deaf and has contempt for its followers pushes liberal policies and pimps in misty more than the Republican party is the Catholic church. I'm pretty sure this guy I'm I'm, I don't wanna say because I think I remember him from before. So I think he might be qualified to say that he's not just trolling. I think there's enough there there and in the current Catholic moment that we're having. I'll see your point and by. I will. I was just gonna second, whatever. He said. Can I answer why not to cop out, but I'm not Catholic. I'm not involved in the inner machinations of your discussions and dialogues every day. Right? And so I don't wanna just sit here and. Cast cast cast bombs from afar. All right. John kit says, because Sesame Street came out and said, Bert and Ernie puppets without orientation, they will now be made to care and throw them wedding ceremony. Bye. Bye. Cool will be made to care there. I, if you're telling me that we're gonna see burden Ernie eventually get married. I will buy. Oh. I'll I'll sell only because every like every once in a while, I don't know how walk Frank Oz is on a regular basis. But I mean he he's stepped up right quick on this one. And said, listen, I played a role, inventing these dudes, and you guys are all crazy. And when he said in that tweet and. It's it's, it's so true. It is. I mean, he's preaching the gospel there. There is so much more to people than their straightness or gayness. Now that's not a perfect parsing because if you wanna take that, you can say that these are kind of Coequal and arbitrary that I don't think that's what he was saying he was. He was simply saying, these are you why? Why? With your silly dumb boxes all the time this, you know, the person Ernie have been friends. They have been teaching lessons to children that transcend your dumb boxes and can speak tip. So what's I hope that's true? Yeah, probably true. He's also seventy-five whoever the next Caesar is Bernie will get married unless you it's. Assist in the Marxist of the progressive mind what he said is totally untrue because how the hell do I label you now? What? What? What? What? What faction do you belong to? Now Adam Kaufman rand. Paul takes sashes q. and becomes the first to leave the GOP. I'll sell sell. There's a constant with rand Paul, it's that he will pick the right fight and then ultimately give up on it at the end. That's the constant. So ordinary. Steve says, Ojo state will win the national championship this year because everything sucks by. Bye. Also, I don't think they're offensive lines is good enough to block Clemson or Alabama, and I don't think the backs they're back. Seven on defense is I think the weakest. It's been in several years and now they're best pass rusher. Mr. Bosa may be gone for the year. If you're if you're doing this strictly on car Mayock argument than you actually are making the right choice. Okay. But but analyzing in terms of football, I think it's, I think it's the most offensively explosive team urban has had, but I also think it's the team that's least built to win a national championship because of that. It's it's more of a video game team than. A team that can they can be in the trenches, particularly on third and three. All right, Pat riots is dropping this bomb in our laps, the book of Genesis before Abraham is largely metaphorical, sell well metaphor going, which way. That's that's. That's no, there's. Define metaphorical for me metaphorical, meaning the descriptions are actually standing in the place of what actually happened. So it's not. It's not literal, I guess I would say. Yeah. I mean, there's figures in the bible. Says, the Lord is the king of cattle thousand hills. Yeah, that doesn't mean there's only thousand hills, and if we counted one thousand one, he doesn't own the cattle. When Jesus says you're the salt of the earth. He doesn't mean you're, you're, you're a pillar of iodine. That's not what it means. I mean, there's metaphors in the bible, so I want it. That's why I didn't wanna just fall right into the the, you know the quicksand here. But if you mean in general, not that it doesn't contain any metaphors, but in general in and of itself, it is a metaphor and I will sell. Yeah, the correct by more correct. Talk about allegory than metaphor. And I, I will say that if we're just talking I those chapters all literally true. The answer to that for me as a Catholic is sell, I think. And I think. Scholarship in many ways. The backs that up. IBM your true preciado of the bible needs to understand the way cultures wrote what they were trying to mission. I believe they're absolutely true. I just don't believe they are in all senses, literally bible, the literal word of God is everything in there to be taking taken. Literally. Those are two different question, correct. That's fantastic distinction. Yep. All right. So several months ago, Steve heaven sent a list and I can't remember what exactly that this was, but it was a really good list and ever since we use that on the show. He's been writing me at least once or twice every week with more lists. But he said, give him out cookie. Cookie, but they're all pretty good. And so I feel like if he's putting this much time into it, I need to throw him a bone. So here we go. This is ten solo artists and whether they were better solo or should have stayed with the band. Phil Collins was better as a solo artist than as a part of Genesis. And I like Genesis, but no jacket required Sudi those albums. Yes. By by that the case can be made. I'm going to go the other way and sell because the fact that he had to step into Peter Gabriel's shoes and that he ended up in a way that I think when you you can unless you're like deep into music, you can convince you can when people think of Genesis just a casual music listener. I think they might think of Peter Collins, I think of Phil Collins. I see. So I think that just goes to show how. What a remarkable job he did to step it. But I, I don't think it's a cut and dry issue. I mean, yeah, Phil Collins solo is just as good as it gets. Lionel Richie is as good of a solo artist as he was with the Commodores. I think it was a better soul hardest. So you're selling? Yeah, it was a better. So LARs. One of the highest selling best selling artist of all time. Mino Richie. Numerous number one songs. Yeah, that album that had all night long. Hello? It's one of the five or six highest selling albums of the nineteen eighty s. Wow, my instinct was going to. I mean, I'm not. I don't know much Commodores am six to go to that direction on that. But I, I'm going with Steve's expertise on this one. I think sometimes people get the song catalogs mixed up like most people know. Phil Collins is not Abba cab or misunderstanding. They know that that is Genesis right. They kind of know which one is which, okay. Most people probably think easy like Sunday morning is a Lionel Richie song. It is not it's a Commodore song. So I think for some of these one of the challenges will be how much of the song catalog do people think are understands belongs to wish of the witch and not both. I think I thought that easy like Sunday morning was a line or not sung, so yeah, point made John Lennon was better with the Beatles also with the Beatles with bottles. Absolutely by. Yeah, absolutely. By not even close. Yeah. Yeah. He was just kind of a weird guy with. Visit out really weird. Yeah. Paul McCartney was as good with the wings as he was with the Beatles. Who's listed this, Steve, have trying to stroke you out. That's what this is. This is Steve. This is like stormy Daniels bathing Trump with Pena's talk. All right. Trying to get him to respond, trying to get his ego out there to help her sell books. And you know, you will be. No, he was going to the Beatles. Yes. Is this listeners attempt to bait me? It's going to work. Greatly greatly. Stevie nicks was better with Fleetwood MAC. I will. I will sell just because I like her version this the orchestral version of landslide better than I do that. The Fleetwood, here's the challenge. Here is several of Fleetwood MAC's biggest songs. She didn't sing. In my opinion, the best song, they go your own way. That's Lindsey. Nielsen did that. Has six don't stop, which is which off the rumors album is. I think their most popular song ever or pretty close to it. Don't stop thinking about tomorrow that was Bill and hill. Bill Clinton's campaign theme in ninety two and ninety six Stevie nicks. Yeah. Okay. But don't stop is another Lindsey. Nielsen song. Hamm said Nielsen's the sports caster from CBS. Lindsey Buckingham. Thank you. Let me see the chain. She's kind of on that. Right, and but booking him sings is on that too. So then, yeah, the other chick who was the piano player? What's her name? She McPhee. Yep. She sang several songs too. So it's not like her voice is paramount on all of their most known hits. This is a tough call. I guess because she probably saying backup still a lot of those songs I will go with. She was better at Fleetwood MAC. What about you. Stevie nicks was better with Fleetwood MAC, I tell you were making the argument that she was better Solel. So you're so you're selling that? She's better with Fleetwood MAC on buying, she's better with Fleetwood MAC. Okay. Well, I think I think it's probably solo because of all the things Steve just got done saying. But along the lines of my Colvin's argument, I'm making arguments she's saying the backup vocals. She sing on those songs is better than probably anything she ever did as a solo artist. That's. The substantial Sola, I think, but she, she also was not originally part of Fleetwood MAC. She was brought. She came in later and so she had to step into an already impressive lineup with dominant very dominant personalities. I mean, there is that's quite a soap opera if you look into whether they was loved the rumors and all that stuff is a reference to all of this going on at the fact that she not only survived that, but strive to the point that her solo career. I, I'm gonna give it Fleetwood MAC for those reasons. Toby, Toby, MAC is better as solo artists than as part of DC talk, sell. My teenage daughter would say he's better solo artist. My wife would say better as part of DC talk. I think that's probably a generational question. I have no frame of reference for answering that question. I can't ever told you about my conversation with Toby. MAC, you know? Yeah, I was walking into, well, I worked for big Chris. Music or Christian radio station up in the twin cities. So we had artists in all the time. I was walking into the bathroom and he was coming out and you know what he said to me, it's up dude. All right. Michael Jackson was better. Nice. That was good. Michael. Michael Jackson was better as a solo artist than a part of the Jackson Five. Yeah, that's easy. That's low lying for by. But it's closer than you think mean Jackson Five. If if if you mean the spread was minus thirty eight only lost by twenty seven. You're right closer than the CS thing. That's exactly how I meant to that. Is. Bobby Brown was better as solo artists than part of a new addition. That's not even that's not even close to all those guys. You had row Trez van. You had Johnny Gill. Bell biv devoe I mean, so yeah, absolutely. That that's an easy easy is an I'm selling. He was better as all artist. Bobby Brown was a boys better as solo easy. Bye bye. Yeah, agreed. See, Perry was the forty five year old white guy pulling out the names. Remember of. Off. You can't fade me. Very nice. Steve Perry was better with journey. Journeys. One of the great underrated bands of all time, and he had that one share which I freaking hated that song with a thousand. Maybe the most Honda rated Doke list in rock music history stares truly until they find the towels guy. Boy. After Filipino. Sorry, racist. Thank you. Sting was better with the police. Oh, by. Absolutely. Pretty good. This'll artist, but there is I could make an argument. The best thing he did is a solo artist was singing the harmony, two money for nothing. Dire straits. That's not no. I could make. He's best solo artist e. Great. It'd be just because of that. I will absolutely go with the cell say, and I I've said on the show before police are one of the most underrated bands of pop music. They're fantastic solo comes close to every breath you take. Don't stand so close to me everything. Everything she does is magic. Nothing. Nothing even close to those three songs alone feel this great music fields of gold. Other ones. I mean, it's it. I would've I would've all I think I would have held, but just because of your grotesque grotesque throwing onto the statistical, the reach, yes. That is boys and girls. I like that category where no, it was a really good concept and pretty well. Trolling for the next seventy eight emails you'll be getting from Steve. All right.

Last name is spelled DACA next hour. We will get to some of your feedback on a feedback Friday, but we have a packed house for the first hour today. Couple of faces here with us Todd. And Aaron he's a familiar face this week. Nate Madden is our congressional correspondents at crtv who apparently has nothing better to do. But the hang out with us this week to see you Nate. And we have a new face with this Caleb. How is the former managing editor over at red stadium. Now with media keta Caleb is on the panel for the first time, brother. It's good to have you with us. How are you? Thanks to be here. Well, let's get to it. It is time for the day. Screw that's right at your weekly. Look at the week that was hopefully that's not an let's begin with this. She won. It was a Blue Wave after all it's the election that won't end after counting all the votes, and in some places counting and counting and counting and counting and counting. Democrats are making the initial prognostication election night. Look a little foolish at this point. They've flipped thirty five house seats with more to come taken over seven governorships, including deep red Kansas, and they fared pretty well against a Senate map that favored Republicans, including that eras Senate seat that Martha mcsally conceited earlier this week which had been in Republican hands for decades Blue Wave or not Democrats now have an easier path to placate their base who so desperately wants him, but we weren't anywhere near that. Yet. Does this breaking news tonight, change your view on? That are true. Are we getting closer and closer to the possibility of yet another impeachment process? Reluctantly wolf I have to say yes, is it an impeachable offense? Even fact the president of struck Justice. So in terms of Keach men, are you taking action working with Republicans are doing anything that would actually moves that agenda forward. Do you harbor any hopes that you will find a conservative legal mind to match your desire to proceed with impeachment up and can can be looked at and perhaps even charged with obstruction of Justice. I think the peace proceedings Abegg aboard. Abegg impeachment proceedings impeachment originates in the house house leadership the Republican party has shown no interest in that. And seems like it's the furthest thing from their mind. You think that's gonna change you suggesting the President Trump should face impeachment? No, I'm not suggesting that congressman what is your case for impeachment. We're talking impeachment. Do you think this is a bridge too far? What do you think of this appeasement prosperity? What's new more needed to prove obstruction of Justice? The president fires the guy coming after after asking the drop the case more than eight is that impeachment is the remedy. I mean, the president can't remedy. There's growing talk about impeachment within your party. You have congresswoman Maxine Waters, you have congressman Alan green, congress congress from in tolsey gathered all talking about impeachment for this president. I wanna get some more about what year one with a democrat house might look like in the next segment, but let's go back to what happened on election night, gentlemen. Let's switch. We do this with the liberal media all the time. So let's do this with ourselves. If indeed Republicans had won thirty five house seats in by my math. I think they're gonna flip five more maybe six more. When the counting is all done, the actual county. Not like what's happening in Broward County. I mean like real vote counting, which would give them a forty seat swing? They swung seven governorships Aaron mentioned, including deep red Kansas and to go minus two against the most favorable GOP Senate map, maybe in the history of the two party system, certainly in recent memory. So I'm asking title start with you. Did we in the conservative media? Did we sell the Democrats short on election night? Why it made it as much again? I predicted a narrow very narrow win for Republicans. So I did. It's definitely a way by that standard. And again, I'm glad we put that in the context a wave is a rhetorical flourish. And so instead of talking in raw data numbers, that's really what we should look at it. Was there any sense of putting a pause button on based by the press, and the Democrats, and I repeat myself, and he sends putting the pause button based on. Well, we didn't win quite as much and we kinda need to day memory of this election. Go away before note, they are using the what they've you as the wave of this. And that's really what matters to talk like that. So it's a I think by any reasonable standard. It's being treated by away by the people who are going to be hijacking a new cycle. So the people on the right people and shows like this better be thinking about it as a way of so we can prepare ourself for what's next Caleb. How you worked many years at one of the leading platforms of conservative media. Now, you're kind of the media critic guy. So did we or former peers Caleb? Did we sell the Democrats short on election night? Was this more impressive win than maybe we thought it was going to be ten days ago. Well, no, I mean, I think from the from the sampling where we are. Now, you can't go back and say was election night under stoled if the gains are being made a week later. So I don't think it was being undersold especially because what they were expecting, and you could hear it in their voices on CNN on MSNBC, even on FOX what they were expecting was to come in. And just be putting up one blue checkmark after another. And when that didn't happen when it didn't happen early when it didn't happen fast. And when it didn't happen continuously the idea that it was a wave sputtered out. It was a branding thing for sure it was definitely perception thing. And eventually they're going to treat it as if a wave. That's correct they're going to act like it's wave. They're gonna rally their base around the idea of wave because they were invested in that that sort of brand for what happens. But even if it was a shellacking wasn't as bad as Obama. The first one, and it it took too long. It was there was too much drama. So as far as walking in for crushing humiliating, defeat of the Republicans. They didn't get their youth. So if I hear your eye Caleb, you'd think they they oversold their prospects going in, and that's why it doesn't appear that they have, you know, kind of the wind at their back momentum that you probably should when you get these kinds of wins. Right magin that they had come in. And they had said look it's going to be a tough re-election. We have a bad map. We're hoping we may not look the house going to have a wave. But it's going to be a good election for us. And we'll probably we'll probably get the majority. And then the results were what they are. Now, they'd be talking about how they exceeded their expectations. Instead they underperformed because they oversold. That's an interesting perspective. Your thoughts covering Capitol Hill. And I don't know how long you've been covering it. But and some of it. I'm sure is because I tend to run more in conservative circles, but I've done my fair share of appearances and interviews with the liberal media. During these cycles and the numbers here for the Democrats are pretty impressive. But in terms of perception, it doesn't feel the way that it felt after twenty ten or twenty fourteen. But maybe they feel differently up there on the hill. Maybe they are giddy. What do you see up there Nate? Yep. Sorry. Steve. I got a lot of cutting out on on my earpiece second ago. But for asking the same question here, I've got a side more with Caleb on this one. They definitely oversold it when we're looking at waves, I the the standard at least in recent memory to look at when we're talking about a wave is the twenty ten tea party way that took over the house. They fell short of that may feel well short of that. And it did take too long. This wasn't the kind of decisive thing that they wanted. They still got the house that was a foregone conclusion. A lot of people's minds of the house was just Alrighty loss because of all the factors that were already there if anything I think the most like the Republican establishments conservative media didn't do enough to manage expectations on that. Because the deck was really strongly stacked against the Republicans keeping the house in any form or fashion last Tuesday. What do you think Aaron? Yeah. I think at least initially we oversold it. But we were just going on. I think a lot of us were just going on information that we already had. I mean on the one hand we listened to a few people few media few in the media. And we know which way they lean we listen to them say, well, this has been a disappointing night for Democrats Caleb is absolutely right. That here over a week later, and we're still getting results in. I mean, this is this has been that what we can half almost in. We're still getting results of some of these races in maybe that's typical for some places. But boy that really seems. It just seems weird especially this many racist. But then again. There were there were a lot of a lot of things that we didn't expect to happen. That happened. So who the heck at this point Caleb? I to go back to you for a second because your monitoring the whole of media now, they're mediate. What is let's set Broward County aside. I think everybody recognizes and maybe throw the Georgia gubernatorial race, and you take the Georgia. Gubernatorial race in Broward County in the Florida races. They're set those aside as their own part is an animal's. Why the hell did it take so long in two thousand eighteen to to count the votes in the Senate race? Why do we still have six house races not called ten days after the election? What what's the cross outside of partisan media? What's the what's the best explanation for why that would even occur in two thousand eighteen America close races? It's closer as as all. We're seeing is is unpreparedness and bad setups that already exist that didn't matter when there weren't enough votes left to be counted to make a difference. You know, if you have a landslide election. It doesn't really matter. If the last twenty thousand votes are take three weeks to count and everything because you fall it really early. So what we're seeing is the kind of unpreparedness that exists in a lot of places in a lot of counties in all around the country, a sort of crumbling. Crumbling structure for counting tallying votes, making sure that their legitimate that they're not being re counted twice. I'm sure that this kind of these kind of errors happen. A lot more often than we think we just don't hear about it because the racist that type, and of course in Broward, and and really anywhere in Florida. And these are the two that that are Palm Beach there that are dragging out the longest but anywhere in Florida your seat problems problems with the electoral process, let's get you an exit question little preview looking ahead to twenty twenty. Michelle Obama everywhere right now book is a bestseller. She's on every just about every mainstream media channel as we speak true or false. Michelle Obama would be a formidable candidate for Donald Trump in the twenty twenty presidential election talk. True. Absolutely. I mean, we are this is reality TV we know that based on Donald Trump's ascendancy. She is a real. Ability TV icon now. I mean, it's it is instantly neck and neck from the beginning Caleb. How true or false? Michelle. Obama would be a formidable candidate for Donald Trump and twenty twenty. I think we'd probably have to define formidable. But she really be a good candidate for sure she's very likable people from various walks of political life Liker. So I think that you would do very, well, what do you think nature faults, which she formidable for Trump? Definitely more formidable than most of the twenty twenty hopefuls that are currently in the democratic field her and Joe Biden right now seem to be the only two who for all their baggage from the past administration for all the jokes and everything else. They're not nearly as big as of punch lines as your camera Harris's, your Cory booker's, your Liz, Warren's, etc. Etc. I think you know, we we still do have to the fun. What formidable means in in sort of context, but definitely more formidable than the rest of the field. Aaron what do you think to revolt definitely definitely true gentleman said to issue to lawyer up? If you wanna good in Dallas, gee, for what the dynamic between the house of representatives and the White House will be for the next couple of years. This montage of Jim Acosta is a pretty good place to start. On my being. Chevy givers as well. Dangerous. Why is he? President. Can you be America first, but also be rubbing elbows with all these bigwigs this president? How can you be America? First when you're rubbing elbows with all these bigwigs cameras turned the cameras on Jan turn the cameras on. I'm sorry that you have to jet turn the cameras on Sean there in the room. Sorry. And I'm not taking another question for this point. Caucasian or white countries, sir. Do you want people to come in from other parts of the world? Whether people have colored. First question. What do you think Democrats mean when they talk about using the house of representatives that they now control as a check and balance on President Trump? What do you think they think that means Nate Madden since you're covering the hill? Start with you. Go ahead. I think that it means that we're going to see every scrap of paper that has added in this administration subpoenaed every single political appointee is going to have absolutely no band with live for anything that this administration wants to do because they're constantly going to be responding to subpoenas summonses from the house, Sherry and oversight committee's. I think that's what they're what they mean by check and balance here they're going to be using subpoena power. They're going to be using the oversight authority of the house to do as much as they can to stymie really with the exception of federal judges and tax cuts. The only place that's making any real policy in the Trump era, which is the Trump administration. We think we think they think it means. I think patient. They're not interested in checks and balances progressivism is basically, we the reason I talk and we talk about notions of civil wars because their tribe is a hostile foreign power. They do not believe in the founding principles of this country. They are increasingly honest about telling you, so you know, that borsch video we talked about with shows the baby and said, you know, it deserves to be a choice that they're that brazen all the time that they really do not care about the constitution as the founding document the declaration in the constitution as they finding documents of this country. They just don't care. So if they don't care about that, they don't they don't care about the fact that we're supposed to have checks and balances they and this goes back to what we talked about before in which is why viewed as a wave, they they they are usurpers and they're going to use this opportunity. Not to check a but to take over to the extent that. They can it's why without even blushing. They talk so freely about throwing dumped Donald Trump out of office. Aaron what do you think they think it means? I think they think it means they're going to be the legislative equivalent of Jim Acosta, just gumming, gumming, whatever the heck they can up and just trolling the White House. All they can because of everything Todd just said that is that's why I chose that analogy in the in the introduction is because they are going to be with actual power. They are going to be the equivalent what Jim Acosta is to those press briefings and whatnot. They're going to be to this White House Caleb. You. With all due respect to the first three guys that spoke. I think we you guys at a really good job of describing. We think they think. And I'm not saying I disagree with any of you, by the way. So let me try the question again Caleb would do you think if you were if you were answering them, maybe I should make it make I should have worded my own question better. What do you think in their minds? It means to be a check and balance on the Trump administration. I I agree for in terms of consequentialist them that what Todd Aaron a Nate have defined. What will ultimately mean? But but how would they define it? Do you think? Well, I think part of the answer to that goes back to something that we were talking about previously with Michelle Obama. I just want to say, I think Harris is probably going to be very strong twenty twenty candidate. Because she is it's easy on the right to say, well, you know, she's she grandstands she acts like Jimmy cost, but she doesn't in congress that makes her seem like a silly candidate. But she's not think that she's exactly what not just what liberal voters are looking for. But this is what the what the congress wants to be. They want to be like, so I think she's going to be a strong twenty twenty maybe stronger than Michelle Obama, even if she's not that as likable. And I also just want to quickly note how hilarious that question was from Jim Acosta talking about how can you be America? First when you're rubbing elbows with other countries. Don't miss premise. I have ever heard from guy. On dump premises. That was only laughable. I wrote a article for red state at couple years ago called CNN's Jim Acosta should shut his loud irritating face, and he's never done anything to change my mind about that. But that's what they're looking for. You know, when they when we got the supreme court seats when we got to spring court seats, they immediately began talking about getting rid of the springboard undermines inborn, adding more seats, reducing its power doing anything, you serve you surp- your patients like what Todd was defining right? And they do the same thing. Now. There's this Senate popular vote mythology going around, and it, you know, that got a Kennedy member who it was over at think progress who's tweet about it and then subsequent article where premised on abolishing abolish the Senate. He said because it undermines free and fair elections for states to have an equal number of representatives in one part of. A by camera legislature? It's utterly preposterous. And it's a fundamental misunderstanding of how the process works. Why it works the way it works? What the intent was they have absolutely no interest in what the constitution is there to protect. And instead what they want to do is chief of particular set of liberal progressive goals at any cost and the voters talk about how they're going to be a check and balance on Trump what they mean is that he's going to they want them to obstruct him and attempt to criminalize him and attempt certainly to lock him up every chance they get what those who were there. What those who are in? Congress thing is a little less Lear because they have power. They wanna do they have their own objectives. They have state goals that they wanna meet that lobbyists that are buying them. They have monies that have been put into their campaign. So they have a little bit murkier goal. But absolutely obstruction and really. Undermining twenty twenty in any possible way. They can all right. I'm gonna play devil's advocate here because we're gonna hear these talking points from Democrats for the next year. And they're going to go. They may put it better than I will. Because I I would assume they'd be better at their talking points than me. But but they're gonna go something like this. Clear the throat get my channel, my inner Camila Harris Lismore in Spartacus. Goes something like this. We have a president who took the extraordinary step of not disclosing his personal finances and taxes when running for office has been extraordinarily secretive about his business associations and yet at the same time. The lawyer who managed many of those things for him for well over a decade has pled guilty to multiple felonies haddish has sworn in affadavit that he that he committed these felonies at the direction of the president of the United States. Speaking of Michael Cohen. We have an outstanding investigation with the with the second longest tenure director of the F B I R J Edgar Hoover himself and Robert Muller that is not yet to its conclusion. These are the things we're going to hear as justifications for why? As Nate said they're going to subpoena every strip of paper, these are the things they're going to use the justify and say because of the president and his character and his associations in the testimony of people like Michael Cohen. This is a proper use of a check and balance and oversight. How would you expect the right to respond to that? With utah. Anybody anybody can go start with you. If you wanna go ahead. Yeah. I mean that is true. That that part of what you do as a check and balances oppose someone if you think they're doing something that's legal act in good faith on on that basis. So that is a, you know, that's not an incorrect thing to say, I also think there are a lot of questions out there that have to be answered as you know, I'm not a big fan of the administration. So if you're if the question is is that fair versus is that what they intend to do. It certainly fair platform to present to their base. It's certainly fair thing to say that this is what we're doing even if you disagree on the particulars, certainly a fair argument for them to make that this is our job. And you'll definitely hear them make that argument Todd. I I don't know if I can expect the right to make this, but the right answer at least one of the right answer is can I expect your interest in Justice in this case to be on the same level as the cavenaugh hearing. I because. That was nothing short of a political assassination attempt. Now Caleb is of course, we all have questions about Donald Trump on a daily basis. But we've also pointed out that the Mueller investigation has been a disaster. In terms of how our government is supposed to function how we are supposed to hold each other accountable and Donald Trump is so obviously in cahoots with nefarious ends this. We don't believe in four dimensional chess. It wouldn't we shouldn't. We couldn't we expect to have more at this point. I listen now they would come back with that and say what more do you want other than the president's right hand? Man. What would what else what else would you like other than Spock getting arrested for violating the prime directive at the at the Canadian captain Kirk into this pandering to our new guests there, but but again, I'm play. Devil's advocate. That's what they would say to you. Which is what further evidence would do you want other than the president's private attorney who helped him fix so many of his problems and scandals stormy Daniels and others which the president did lie about. And now, we know it was all true swearing in under oath in an affidavit that under direction of the president's states. I broke the law that would be how they would respond to that whether smoking guns do you want other than that? That's what who would say to impeach the president of the United. Well, that's again, I'm leaving these questions open ended on per why are we doing if if it's again, we started off the show if it's to impeach. Yeah. Of course cannot do guilt by association, particularly when you're throwing out the leader of the free world. There needs to be more. There needs to be more than the same sort of rhetorical flourish that you brought to the cavenaugh hearing where you could say and do anything, and we just saw how preposterous that was with Michael avenue. It's got to be more. We have got to stop this insanity where the bar the bar is got to be as clear as ever when it be whether it's Trump in the White House, a Republican a democrat and increasingly the lowest bar in all of existence is when we go to Washington DC, and we play reindeer games with each other Nate, what do you think? How would you respond to these points that I'm raising? Then I think they will raise. Oh, of course, they're going to raise them, and we're talking about this. What I keep thinking of is looking at when the entire balance a federal power was inverted from twenty ten to twenty fourteen. I think we're gonna see the bizarro world equivalent of all the different investigations that Republicans launched against Obama with at least the same. If not an increased for acidy, and let's face it. A lot more increase media coverage. Imagine all of the coverage that conservative media gave to fast and furious the IRS scandal and the Megaza investigation, but amplified by your CNN's, your Washington Post, your New York Times and given far more favorable coverage than even those were by conservative media. I think that's the bare minimum of what we're going to be looking at for the next two years because to the left this is their equivalent of fast and furious IRS scandal. The Benghazi situation everything that came up during a bomb situa- during Obama's administration that Republicans wanted to investigate that Republicans wanted heads to roll over. We're going to see that completely inverted, and we're gonna see the same tactics made by Democrats, and we're gonna see a, you know, not getting into a discussion about whether or not the arguments would have merit, and which which ones are true, which ones are bullcrap. We're gonna see the Republicans in this case play the same kind of defense that Democrats were during those four years, and I think the defense will look something like the case Todd made why why should we trust you to be instruments of Justice, given the way that you just handled debris cavenaugh situation, but that's more of a negative arguing against a negative that that doesn't do really anything to get to an objective truth. But I think that's kinda how Donald Trump likes. I think he kinda likes it where you're negative negative and trying to find objective truth in Washington DC. I think I think he likes it that way exit question if the way the Democrats will handle the their oversight business the next two years, we're Led Zeppelin song which Led Zeppelin song. Would it be a when the levee breaks be ramble on C, no quarter or d-? What is and what should never be Aaron I'll start with you. When the levee breaks when the levee breaks choices, I'm going with no quarter. No quarter meeting. No resistance or no restraint. All right. What do you think Nate, which one absolutely no quarter? We're not going to see it into subpoenas. We're not going to see an end to hearings. There will be no quarter against you administration, regardless of what the actual substances. Kayla. What do you think I don't know how you can apply? Any other song to any political situation ever then ramble on? You know, what I think they will ramble on? I was waiting for someone to give me this answer. Steve I think they're going to ramble on while they apply no quarter. I think they will ramble on and on and on while no quartering at the exact same time. And then then, and we won't know the answer to this. Because some of it will be what if anything they come up with. And what the president doesn't doesn't say in his defense. But then we'll have a conversation year from now about whether they completely overshot their goal and created their own backlash which Democrats are known to do. There's two certainties in American politics, preemptive surrender by Republicans if they can and then Democrats creating their own backlash by completely and totally overreaching in response to said, Brent surrender. When we come back, dude. Instant karma is gonna get you to talk about that next year live on the blaze TV state-owned. You know, we talk a lot about fake news nowadays. And you know, where you see maybe more than anywhere else when it comes to your health. Take a look at your SuperFood container.

A better you tomorrow? Let's get issue. Three karma is a female dog. Not all heroes wear capes. Non all warriors carry a sword. And not all men have penises. Not sure how that's relevant to this story. But we gotta check boxes here. And sometimes in the darkest of nights burns, a light, so bright one might mistake it for a flaming pile of putrid, garbage. This man was that hero. He was that Boyer. And he was that flaming pile of garbage his story is one of humble beginnings. Born a poor black child who became a third right lawyer. For a washed up porn star who happened to sleep with the president of the United States, heroes degrade prominence standing up for women's rights against the misogyny of his age being a crusader more than an opportunist out of his great magnanimity. He believed a win. Until he was arrested for domestic violence against his ex wife. Michael avenue American hero. Let's her Catholic. 'cause I gotta tell you now days. I I can't I I can't always tell with sarcasm and in what's not. So everybody is adamant that he's being railroaded that he is falsely accused caused the charges completely bogus and demands he be given all the benefit out. He did not want to grant Brett cavenaugh when accusing him of being gangrape est on a nebulous day Douglas year sometime well over thirty five years ago. So what's your instincts tell you title start with you is he being unfairly targeted here? What do you think? Yeah. I think he probably is. Yeah. We we need to start thinking along the lines of autumn's razor in terms of total depravity everything has win weaponized almost everything has been legitimised in terms of political warfare. And we do know from various other ugly. Strains we've seen recently that there is a side of the right whatever that is now that plays by all of the same rules of the left. There's no mere Christianity's. There's no first things guiding them other than their tribalism. So I think the thing that makes the most sense is that while there might be some they're they're just like there might have been some kernel of truth with whatever happened to blazey four. But I think for the most part that small kernel of truth has been turned into a new. Nuclear bomb to take illegitimately takeout. Mike Levin, Eddie, what do you think? Nate what are your instincts? Tell you as a reporter is happening here with him. Are we really going to talk about fairness after what happened to Brett Kevin off? But I you know, Todd is shamed. Me into realizing the there there probably is this is probably targeting. This is probably there's probably some truth to ultimately at all points back to why things like evidence and due process matter, which is the case that conservatives made all the way through the Brett Cavanaugh circus in the Senate. It's just as true now, even if it's a completely unsympathetic character. This is happening to even if it's somebody who outright advocated to completely forgo due process for really totally depraved accusations with absolutely no grounding in reality whatsoever. But there is I mean shot in fort is a hell of a drug, and it's. It's difficult to resist at a time. Can I say, it's because of the sky. I mean, I've talked about it for. That's why I keep saying it's so important the way I was targeted in my previous career. Why you have got to have a line in the sand where you will not let innocent men be taken out just because you just like them, and Steve, you know, the legal eagles better than I do in the conservative world, whoever they are. I would be willing to step up like John Adams did defending the red coats and seventeen seventy they should be going to Michael avenue defense right now it to the if behind the scenes, they have a degree of a level of certainty that he is being railroaded. Because that's the way we finally put this nonsense to bed sooner or later. Otherwise, you we just he exit Sates left. And then we go into the next circular firing squad. This is killing all of us Caleb. What do you think? I think it's really hard to say and certainly. Five years ago. We would've said it's premature to say whether or not he's being railroaded. There are earmarks of being railroaded. They're also the telltale signs of it being drew. It's really hard to say. And we can't judge his character. Well, enough from what we've seen. That's good news for him from what we've seen on air. He may have a sterling character that we just have not been made aware of for some reason. So. It's tough to call. I couldn't say so you know, these stories. For me growing up in a home with domestic abuse. I always have to try and separate that. So that I don't just assume every time someone is is accused of this Dave day faces on their shoulders. And and and you know, I've got a an endless quarry here of rock's ready. Fire aim, okay? I will say this though. And I'll say this is one of those crazy right wingers who doesn't even like most conservative judges. I'm not on that level. I'm not even a big Brett cavenaugh fan. I just didn't like what was happening to him as you pointed out Todd, and there's literally nothing in his character at all for the to to to lend itself that for one summer in nineteen eighty-two. He just he just lost his damn mind and then for the rest of his life. Just was Mary are FDA. That's just that's a hard narrative for me to believe. However with Michael Audie, Eddie, whatever his name is you know, the LA times. The Daily Beast did a pretty exhaustive expose him about a month ago that basically just laid out all the in him. He's a fraudster leans fiction notices millions of dollars of unpaid bills and things of that nature. We saw the way that he has behaved on air. We've seen the way he has behaved he behaved in the Brett cavenaugh thing putting forth, a sworn affidavit that just was a complete pile of of you know, steaming garbage. So it doesn't that doesn't mean he's guilty here. But it doesn't merely require Erin. The leap to go here. Yeah. With him as it did with in thirty five years ago. Brett Cavanaugh was Larry Flint, and then the rest of his life. He was the nerdy. Soft-headed Republican most conservatives think doesn't have any doesn't have any balls that is require merely the leap in every case. Right. Just because of the expose that you mentioned, and, you know, dragging out Julie, sweat, Nick as well. The. The the lady who made the outrageous accusations who's not backtracked against Brett cavenaugh it all points to poor character. There's lots of people with poor character who don't beat their wives your. But I still see what you're saying there. There's character issues at the very least documented that lend itself to this guy not being on the up and up on any areas of his life. If he if he's if he's show shows poor character in one these pretty large areas in his life's work, basically. Then that's probably a good indication of what he's of what he's really like in as far as I'm not sure how you would make a determination of of if he's being railroaded at this point. Or if this these allegations are true it as far as I'm aware these are much more recent. Yeah. Yeah. And they're the hands of the PD as we speak. Exactly. And so I'm not sure I'm not sure how you fake that either. So that's those are things to keep in mind. But I'm sure how you make it a termination about that. At this point. I mean, the good news for the intersection -ality crowd is if indeed he is being railroaded than we now have the LAPD targeting a white male. So we're making progress here, there's always there's always a silver lining is always always, you know, me I'm always gonna find it exit question. If Michael future were Led Zeppelin saw which Led Zeppelin song to be trampled. Underfoot. Be in my time of dying see dazed and confused or d the song remains the same. What do you think Nate? The song remains the same. We talk about this perception of avenues character. That's. Gets into this whole thing of how we perceive people based on what they're doing and everything else where they sit on the political landscape talking to somebody who was anti Cavanaugh after the all the dust settle and everything else, and you kind of made a similar point about what the left thought of cavenaugh the entire time was that it's not that much of a leap to assume that he would do something like this is, you know, he was a privileged prep school, bro. Back in the day. Who drank a lot of beer when he was high school. So it makes you know, it would make sense any did this. I think the song remains the same. I think he's still going to keep a lot of his base or whatever you can call his followership at this point. They're going to be just as devoted that were in the first place. They're gonna they're going to write this off as completely politically motivated. They're gonna write off every single. I mean, even if something does come up we we've seen the even even convictions don't necessarily have to stick. If you're a popular enough figure on the left. So I think the song remains the same in his case you agree quickly. You agree agree. But I'm still gonna go within my time of dying because the sucks Caleb, which Led Zeppelin song is Mike. Lebanonese future. What do you think days the confused? Aaron song remains the same issue for is it finally Muller time. Special counsel. Robert Muller may be close to wrapping up his investigation of alleged ties between Russia and the Trump campaign of 2016 or he may not be who the hell knows. First question. Are we buying the stories that Muller is working on his final report and preparing to wrap it up Caleb? Are you buying it? Well, first of all, I don't think those two things are the same thing as he working on his final report say probably definitely is that going to be soon. There is literally no way anything can trip him up. Anything slow down there. It's it's absolutely impossible. Is he trying to wrap it up? I suspect he's been trying to wrap it up for a long time. I mean. Go hang it up trying to get out trying to get up. Okay. Why do you suspect that curious curious? I'm curious. Why do you suspect it? Because what he's in right now is the if you watch a lot of cable news, which is basically what I do for a living. You see Ken Starr lot and the position that he's talking about Mueller being in right now is is untenable for his future. And it is a never ending process. He says, you cannot stop finding violations of the law when you're investigating people who work in politics and government and one leads to another leads to another and it can it can go on interminably in forever. And then you get to the point where they become judgment proof because there's such a partisan investment on both sides. And you don't move anybody with your report because everybody's minds are already made up you missed your to make a difference. Basically that report out after a certain amount of time. There's there's no one whether they wanted to impeachment or whether that was the last no one's going to be happy with what you that's kind of what I've been saying about this this process for about the last eight months, are you buying that? It's almost over Nate. Think he's definitely working on the report. I think he's probably gonna keep finding things or never he didn't develop a reputation of the FBI and his careers investigator by walking away from things empty-handed. I think this is going to go on as long as it as long as Muller thinks that it has to so as far as any predictions prognostications about how long this is going to take and whether or not it's going to be a disappointment. I'm on a wait and see kick with us Todd. I'm a countable potentates. Are this country's jam right now. He he's not going anywhere. We've got courts. Now, you know, basically saying that Jim Acosta gift gets to live rent free in the White House in perpetuity. This is where we live man Aaron on it. I mean, we've had this for a year and a half almost more than a year and a half. What's another two three four five six eternity years with Robert Mueller? I mean, a lot of billable hours bra amongst friends. What's the difference? What difference at this point? Does it make into lot of billable hours for folks who maybe don't understand the process? He's actually on handling the Michael Cohen conviction. That's actually been sent over to the jurisdiction of US attorneys. Set is the what is that the blue dress of this case? Yes. Yeah. That's a good analogy, by the way exit question if the potential for impeachment initiative provided for House Democrats by Muller in his final report were Led Zeppelin song. Which Led Zeppelin song? Would it be a whole lot of love which by the way tribute question? It's the only top twenty hit on the billboard chart Led Zeppelin ever had because most of their songs, they never even released a singles be heartbreaker, see communication breakdown or d good times bad times kind of a mixed bag. What do you think Aaron? I think it's gonna be good times bad times. But mostly I mean, both sides will try to read into it. What they want to Todd. Yeah. Communication breakdown. We're all speaking pig Latin. Now, it's in indecipherable. What do you think Caleb? I'm gonna have to reject your choices and go with over the hills and four-way. Nice. Do I like that? Go ahead. What do you think what Led Zeppelin song that? I gave you the option of you cannot go off the board because you've been on the show before you were not giving a guest exemption from our fake binary choices. Go. I think communication brick house the best option here. Everyone's going to read what they want to read out of that. I mean, there's going to be communication breakdown for some it's going to it's going to be heartbreaker, if you reading it as a as a Republican is going to be a whole lot of love reading it as a democrat, regardless of what the substances they're going to use. Whatever is in there for the big impeachment. Push. That is a metaphysical certitude at this point. All right. Let's get you predictions. Todd. I'll start with you. Jim Acosta will rightly enter the White House and give Donald Trump a kick me sign as his first order of business because that's what Donald Trump deserves to wear by accepting back. This would be suffice to say Jim Acosta if they go along with this judge's ruling. Is it is it suffice to say Jim Acosta has cut Donald Trump is that fair to say, this is the ultimate cuck move on Trump's part? Don't you think? Oh, totally. He's he's just a total empty suit. Now for accepting this all of his toughness and his bluster stuff that we've applauded that was necessary. But you let you you simultaneously give the press and the courts win. You've just shown that you really got no stones man. What do you think? Your prediction this week? Go. Take a very very long shot. And I'm going to say that the citadel stays within thirty points of Alabama next week next week's pay off game. I think I think that's likely I gala bama's going to try to get out of there with the two big games on deck. And you know, they they often don't cover those massive numbers in these scrub weeks before the rivalry weekend. Anyway, I don't think that's a bad prediction at all. Aaron what do you think? The winner of the big ten regular season championship will end up in the final four. What's your prediction? Caleb. I'm gonna go with the Panthers are gonna win on Sunday. Against my lions. That's yours. Well, it depends. Well. Keeping but he just decided to like anyway. They don't make up for this last loss. If Cam Newton doesn't go out there and put on that amazing first game vs in performance of his professional career where everybody was like. Wow. This guy is more than just hype than than it's really bad news for the rest of the season for the fans. Well, my lions have have gotten blown out three straight weeks kind of shut it down for the season. So I think you're pretty safe about it's not about just winning in the score. You got to they've got the dominant. Oh, I think you're pretty someone used the term thing was Nate metaphysical certitude a couple minutes ago. I think you're in good shape. And I'm gonna make a sports prediction as well. That's actually my tattoo. Metaphysical survey. Is it nice? I'm gonna make a sports prediction as well. I hate on with chalk. But we're kind to the point. There's there's usually so many upsets in college football that chalk is now actually not the conventional wisdom that I think the same four teams that had been in the top four for the last couple of weeks. We'll end up finishing all went out and get into the top four. And those will be your four playoff teams, Alabama, Clemson Notre Dame and Michigan. And I think it'll be in that order now did you see Alabama play Michigan in the Cotton Bowl and the Notre Dame and Clemson in the Orange Bowl and the executives at Disney will be very happy with those four gentlemen.

You know, I hear you. All right. Let's get to it. It's time for some feedback Friday. This is what you've said to us on Facebook Twitter Email, Steve it's days dot com. I am still locked out of my Facebook page Facebook sent you know, three days ago, telling me, I was going to get banned for three days for something. I wrote thanking the president for getting rid of cross dressers in the military, which he didn't actually do and that violated their standards, and I wrote that well over a year ago. And somehow I mean, if we're going to go back now and retroactively start banning stuff on the basis of what you said a year three four five years ago, violates the this month morality, they're going to be a lot of thinning of the wrecks on social media. But you know, maybe that's what they want. So I can't interact with you guys on Facebook. I can see what you're sending me at least until tomorrow morning, but I can't respond. So I'm going to respond to some of the notes you've sent me on Facebook here guys if you guys. Okay. With that. Because I I can't do it in writing. This is from John bum beano is his name be UM. Be. I wanna make people think I just made that up. Right. You can see them screen. That's a that's a real person. All right. It just make that up not entirely. Sure. Why? But I really don't care for your show. I don't really care much for Steve. Or the other crew used to watch doc Thompson every day too bad. He's gone back. Raise a good show and Glenn does a good job. But I really don't like your show that makes two of us, Dan. Well. I'm not exactly sure why John is insurer or it's John's. It's okay for his friends. Call him, Dan, Dan. In fact, I'm not exactly I'm not entirely. Sure, why John is not entirely sure why doesn't like our show. I mean, I'm on. I'm on this show every day and have been for years. I could come up with a myriad of reasons. Not to like it. I come up with a plethora of reasons not to like us. I mean. Have have our standards in the culture sunk solo than I now have to do a better job of articulating why you wouldn't like us than than you're capable of. There's there's all kinds of reasons not to like us. I mean, how do I load the let me count the ways. I. Why is he mystified that he doesn't like us? Is a lot of hallmarks of progressivism. To be totally sure about the things you're not really sure about this guy's entering dangerous waters. I'm just this. I'm doing a public service announcement. I mean, you you spent the time to be so sure to write about something. You're not really sure about that sounds like this Austin Fleck us thing where they go out and people are protesting bench appear, and they know of the idea what he's ever said or done. I don't know just go do something else. Man. Why why spend the time right? I mean, other speak for me. Just just because I want I want to help John bombie out. I mean, I'm not I don't really have a classic radio voice. I'm certainly not. I think face made for radio in my case might be a compliment. I pulled off forty seven sit ups in my one minute workout test this morning, but you know, I'm I'm still rolling quite the spare tire in that part of the in that part of the natural heavy it's often. There's that I've got an incredibly narrow worldview, I mean, it's. I mean, there's like this gate here at the end that it's only open about that wide. And that's about all they gets through. So right away. I'm, you know, I'm not attractive easily alienate people, and I don't really have the most pleasant or soothing voice. And did I mention I wear sweatpants almost every single day to work because I'm only filmed from the top up. So I mean, I could continue. But I think by now. We got John off to a good start about why he's not sure he doesn't like us. Basically, John all you did was tell us you've been watching. Thank you. Thank you for that. We appreciate it. Here's another John. John Luton says I listened to your show yesterday where you were insulting Jolo state you commented that you didn't have anybody come to his defense. Well, now, you have one it's by the way, you keep calling him. Joe john? Keeps calling him. Joe oestang? It's joel. All right. And you know, you talk about how he's. Made an amazing impact on your life and help to turn it around. He he made such an amazing impact on your life. You do not know his name. Problem mazing impact on your life. But. You don't. His name puts his name, everywhere everywhere. His name is behind me every day on the show, and he made an amazing impact life. You don't know his name Jill Joe J J J Abrams. Maybe that's he's talking. You know, what I'll take it for granted. He said as I was saying, I find it very disturbing that someone who goes by versus and claims to interpret God's word on the radio would insult another pastor who has done so much for so many people. Why? It. It's it's because I quote bible versus that. I'm insulting Jolo stink. Because that's not what he does. He's not pastor. He's coach and really good one. I mean, there's a lot of you know, tips of of how to win friends and influence people that he gives you that. I don't think are bad. They're just not Christianity. And if he was like your corporate life coach or your your high school guidance counselor. Would you have a problem with you're listening? Not really. Off ryan. Already lost John Bombini? I'm trying to hold onto John Luton's here guys like within five minutes. I would say why that ridiculous handsome smile off your the point is he does he listened? I've I've read numerous of his books. I used to watch his show after I I got convert I used to watch all the time. And then when I started studying the bible, I'm like, none of this is actually like any of his messages. Okay. So he is a life coach. He's Oprah Winfrey for white suburbanites. But he's Oprah Winfrey for white suburbanites who who want bible versus. That's what it is. That's all. That's it. Is that Christianity? It's it's self esteem is stealth esteem ISM. It's you ISM some of. It's not bad. You know? I mean, every time Disney says believe in yourself sometimes you do need to believe in yourself. When your daughter is doing is is doing, you know, a national event in sports, and she's going to begin the level of competition. She has never faced before I'm sure you've given her as a pep talk. As an old, man. Hey, you've done this before you've got the talent. Leave in your ability to do this step up. Not every time. Someone says believe in yourself or something is it bad K win win win win. That is the end of of of the journey though. When the when the conversation begins and ends with you. It may be a lot of things maybe bad some of them may be good. You know, what it's not. It's real. It's not Christianity Christianity is ideally Jolo Stein is the pronouns you, and I that those things aren't the same. That's all. That's all. And I don't think it's too much to ask that if someone has really gone out really had a huge impact on your life. You know their name. Name and claim it. Oh, five people in the audience right now. No, I that was his inner, but they're all laughing Catholic threw that out there that reference. Yes. This is also from Facebook. Jim Jim Carbonelli rights, I'm contacting regarding your evaluation of MC Sally's liberty score. Let me stop right there. I didn't I. Evaluation. That's what I tried to explain the other day. The liberty score is a stenographer. It's not in of all the other groups that have their own scoring. They're actually doing an evaluation meaning club for growth may wait a certain Bill that is more of a priority for their donors than another Bill and national right to life may do the same and the NRA or gun owners of America made you the same. They're actually valuating people. We're not we're recording their votes. We're that we're the conservative review, we're the court reporter sitting there with the little stenography pad. We're just you're the ones the politicians are talking in voting. The jury is acting. We're not we're not doing anything we are recording the record. That's all we're doing. That's just to your SIS 'gendering of the things they've actually done and said, so we're not evaluating the conservative view. Liberty score is not in valuation. And if it was like how relation in if it were. How would we then value? You wait the valuation. Yeah. It's it's not innovation. It's an accumulation. This is how they voted their last fifty times in office is how far back we go. Because we also don't think if someone's been in office for ten years, you know, it may not be fair to pull out one vote. They made in two thousand and seven that we don't like and have that ruin their entire score. All right. So we only go back your last fifty votes on everything we don't way one thing more than another. It is a recording. Okay. This is very important understand. This is not our evaluation. It's their accumulation. It's how she has voted. And then if you go to our site and you click on Martha or any member of congress democrat or Republican, you'll see the PDF there were you can look at how they voted on these issues and see it for yourself. We can't make this any more clear or we did this this way on purpose because see conservative review for let me explain something to the audience. Maybe I haven't explained since we've come to the we've come to the blaze where did conservative of you camp. Come from conservative review is the brainchild of a very wealthy, man. Who named whose name we will not disclose here. So that he can have some form of private life. But a very wealthy man who was given promises by the Republican party that if he maxed out to many of their caulk causes in the two thousand and ten tea party election day would follow through on all that high minded rhetoric that they were promising all of the conservatives that year, and then when they didn't follow through, and he gave them all that money to just do essentially nothing like most people who have a conscience. He got mad. So we began to recruit a group of people are executive editor gassed and Mooney used to be worth the Senate conservatives fund used to work on Capitol Hill for Jim Dement. And Pat Toomey, Daniel Horowitz who you see on here used to help recruit candidates for the Madison fund or the Madison project, I should say. You may have watched Amanda carpenter on CNN. She was one of our original crewmates here. She was Ted Cruz communications director meeting a team of people were assembled. I was. One of the original people brought in here I worked in the media a team of people with expertise in different facets of the conservative movement. Where essentially brought in before crtv was ever born the original intent in a lot of money was put into creating the liberty score to remove our opinions out of it. Because what we saw is. There was a lot of people doing scoring that we're really doing fluffing they were protecting their favorite candidates and not really telling our people what was really going on. And so our organization was set up to blow all of that up. The algorithm. We have is not an algorithm. It is we literally here's how they voted. And then we report on it. That that's what that's all that it is. But to keep this massive debt, we created this to remove much of our opinions because we all have biases we all come into this with some relationships. We all come into this with people we do like and don't like in the movement. It's cetera. We wanted to remove as much of that as we possibly could. You can't totally remove because we're all human beings, but it was created to remove as much of that as possible. So that the votes would speak for themselves their records would speak on their own. That's how this was started in two thousand thirteen two thousand fourteen crtv came later, and there's a whole story behind that and much of we're crtv came from is because we were we essentially begged CNN whose ratings were in the toilet. We essentially again, our original benefactor, essentially begged CNN, why don't you put somebody like Mark Levin who has an actual following on and get some real ratings and primetime hell, I'll even pay you to do it for the first year. I'm so confident this. We'll make money we'll pay you and CNN was so adamant that they needed to remain in ninth place. I'd have three competitors that they just weren't they wouldn't. And so we created crtv as a platform to give Mark to to to put, you know, somebody like, Mark Levin. A movement conservative who couldn't get a spot on prime time cable news to create one for him. And then that show became so successful in blew up that the management here was like, you know, let's, you know, we're gonna we got a son in the solar system. You know, what a son needs planets, so we should create some planets orbit around that solar system to provide even more content, and that's Romy and Michelle Malkin, and Steven Crowder, we were the the original team of people that were kind of launched into geo Centric orbit around Mark Levin. That's where that's where all of this came from. And it was all created originally with the notion that we weren't we weren't going to game the system we were not going to play the game. A lot of other people play hell, the reason we see nobody's confirm this for me. I think one of the reasons we call themselves conservative review was to push back on national review, which essentially become you know, mitt Romney's the new Reagan after he ran for the Senate ripping Reagan and saying it was a right winger. Then hated people in nineteen Ninety-four, or you know, there's at this point. I don't believe there's anything courts could decree that three guys writing at national review right now would not say you all miss castrate yourselves, there'd be three people at national review write a column that would say, you know, it's a crappy ruling, but here are some of the the the the most effective knives to cause the least amount of collateral damage. We suggest removing your nether regions with and here's a very strong local to go along with it. That's kind of. That's I think that's even the reason we probably called ourselves that I don't know that that's kind of my own theory. But. I think this is important right away. And I probably should have made the point. I just made Wong ago of where we all came from in. Why we all started this and it was precisely to not do evaluations. It was precisely we're reporting mechanism. We won't we don't endorse candidates. We we are doing the best as much as we possibly can. That's also why you see a wide range of voices. When you go to conservative review, see a group of people who are adamantly pro-trump. You see a group of people like me, for example, who are fairly sceptical initially. This is again done for the purpose of letting you decide we don't believe it's our job. You know, our offices are in Greenville, South Carolina. We don't believe it's our job to sit around in DC and New York and game and decide what what content can today's conservative. Should they be exposed to know, we're not gonna do that? And then you guys decide whether you like it or not period and a sentence. So right away. Jim nobody at conservative review has evaluated Martha mcsally or any other member of congress. They have simply recorded their votes. That's it. He goes on to say, I appreciate you highlighting her record. However, what should I make a comment that he prominent moody broadcaster is that somebody should with associate with many. Guessing radio network. Correct. Okay. I didn't know that. Right. What is to be made of a prominent moody broadcaster, referring to her as pro-life, can you please address to root out the bias of hidden agendas, especially when such conflicts exist. Yes. That's why we created the liberty score. That's why we made it this way. So I don't even know who Janet partial used to work at moody. I don't know if she still does not know who. Okay, not really sure who was over there. Let's say let's say it was Janet. Okay. And Janet partial says Martha mix alleys pro-life and Steve day says that she's not, you know, how you went iron that out is you would go to conservative review dot com. Look Martha mcsally vote voting record and find out for yourself whether or not she voted on Planned Parenthood. And then I guess if we can't agree that voting to fund the largest killer of children on planet earth is not pro-life. Then. We're having a different argument than whose square. Point. He he's point is he struggling, and I don't blame him for struggling. He struggling with. I trust this person. And they're telling me one thing. But you're telling me another. I'm not telling you anything. I'm telling you what Martha mcsally did. Meaning this isn't my spin. It's not my opinion. This is how she voted. You know, I think that's very important. Now, you may have an opinion on well, you know, she had to vote to fund Planned Parenthood because otherwise the government would have shut down, and it would've cost Republicans the midterm elections. And she's given a lot of other pro-life speeches. Okay. And that's your opinion urinalysis. But that's not her record. All I'm I'm just giving you the record. That's it. That's all we do at conservative review. I just look at the record. Can I make? I'm not this is important this conversation. Jim, I don't believe you're being snarky. And I don't think I don't care if you are. You're welcome to be just. We have tried. Our our entire platform was created to take as much ego and guesswork out of this as we possibly could as we possibly could. So that scorecard is nothing other than their record period. That's it had anything else to this guys. You think I've answered Jim's question. And can add one more thing than since you guys told me to move on. Let me add one more. A lot of people in conservative media C when you get what we used to joke around call this. The magic are and Abraham won a Republican primary, and it was credited him the magic are and this righteousness. Okay. When you when you in all who gaze upon the the magic are marvel at the magic are when you win a Republican primary. Why don't believe Jim Jordan ever, be speaker? Those his only chance to be speaker of the house was to win the minority leader election a few days ago. Steve why here's why? Because many of the same conservative groups that were emailing you we need Jim Jordan to be the minority leader. Kevin McCarthy sucks. Here's what's going to happen. In fact, it is now the Kevin McCarthy one, and it wasn't even close. It was like one hundred fifty to forty three or something now. Kevin McCarthy one. They're all going to now begin pivoting telling you how Grady is new conservative hero trademark. Yes. And since Kevin McCarthy is in a distinct minority with Democrats get to pick up about forty seats. When it's all said and done they won't need any. They're they're not Democrats aren't gonna need any Republican votes to do anything. They want to do which means all these republics this cell. You'll know who the really bad Republicans are the ones who keep voting rhino. Even when their votes aren't aren't needed like when when the Democrats were in control of congress fully the last time and Murkowski and Orrin Hatch kept voting with him. Anyway, that's how you know, they suck like they. They won't even they they have. So low regard for you. They won't even lie to you. They'll just they'll just openly betray you on the steps of the Roman Senate, Bruce in broad daylight when their votes aren't even needed. Okay. So what's gonna happen is the Democrats are going to do a lot of things party line in the next two years and as partisan as possible Republicans will say, no and McCarthy's to be on every Sunday show. Every conservative media outlet and sounding as right wing, and he's going to be the two live crew of of the right wing as right wing as he wanna be and many of the people that bombarded your Email inbox to tell you that if if that we can't have the rhinos win. That's why you have to vote Jim Jordan. They're gonna tell you for the next year as Kevin McCarthy serves up conservative porn. They are going to be downloading that into your inbox. And then once they do that they will brand him. Your new conservative hero is Aaron said and the next time the Republicans get the house provided Kevin McCarthy doesn't do anything completely stupid which space. That's a possibility. He's going to be the next speaker. And also UCS we forgot to defunding Planned Parenthood and repeal ObamaCare against or for us again. Just forgot. And so this is the game honest mistake. Yeah. This is why I said when we talked about MC Sally earlier this week. I am well aware she is not with me. I would have voted for her anyway. Because her opponent wants to end me. But that doesn't mean MC Sally is the hero of the story. She's not she's a tool for me to use my own self interest. In the reason why once these this is also why we can never one of the big parts of my next book preorder available now just in time for Christmas. If you're one of the nine people we haven't alienated yet. All right, Amazon dot com. Truth bombs, vise conservatives believed to our own demise. You wanna know what I knew we were done. Is when we went after McConnell in Kentucky. With Matt Bevin who such a good candidate that he's now the governor of the state. And this is a state where in the last twenty years. Democrats three times didn't get forty percent of the vote in the presidential election. That's red. It's becoming. And all this media, and all this attention and focus, but all the media attention, focus was all from the liberal media. Like FOX drudge rush never talked about the race. It was all it was all over MSNBC and CNN, but how many Republican primary voters are watching those channels answer. Not right. So we get to primary day Matt Bevin. He puts a substantial amount of money out of his own pocket. Six figures to launch his candidacy. He's got all this grassroots support. It gets absolutely annihilated. That wasn't even losing convincingly to the leader. The Senate to a Senate party leader isn't the problem. All right. Here's the problem. Remember when I mentioned that three times in the last twenty five years Democrats can even get forty percent statewide, and they presidential election in Kentucky while that same exact day. The Democrats had their primary too. And they had way higher turnout for a Senate primary in an election. They were never gonna win. Then we had challenging the Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell in deep red state. Meaning our people could were so uninformed about what was happening for real. They weren't even spurred to show up and vote. And why is that because of what's happening with McCarthy as we speak? He's being rebranded now that he won. He is your new conservative hero trademark is Aaron said and that and that's it conservative review we tried to remove as much of that as possible. This is just their records. You you make up your own mind. What you want to do with it? But the the issue is not voting for Mick Sally. The issue is voting for MC Sally believing. She some kind of conservative hero when she's not because if the day should come that a non crazy conservative should try to primary her if she would have won. Well, if you've been told this whole time, Arthur mcsally is your new conservative hero. Why would you vote for her conservative challenger in a primary guys? Why would you do that answer? You would not. And that's why this is why we almost never win any of these. In fact, it's why they're usually not even competitive on primary day, we usually get poleaxed. That's why I gave up the process because we're gonna get the same result. No matter what you know. So. With all due respect to him. And we appreciate you listening in watching. I think you need to go back to that moody broadcaster with Martha mcsally liberty score and ask them to reconcile it. I don't have to reconcile anything. I I didn't make Martha mcsally votes. Who do you think who do you think probably created Martha mcsally voting record? So probably created that. Are the initials m I think it's Martha did you vote proxy for her? No, Martha mcsally voted. So I don't need to reconcile Martha mcsally voting record. It's not mine. It's hers if someone else looks at that voting record and says, that's pro-life. And I would I would take it to that person and ask them to reconcile it. We created this. So that we wouldn't have to reconcile anything. We would just look at the results and say that's what they did. Thoughts on that. Why do we still talk about a thing called the conservative base? Yeah. It might be a conservative something. But it's not a base because there because. Of the conversation that we just had most of our people aren't aware of what's act what's actually happening because most of our people get informed by FOX who is citing with Jim Acosta in a ridiculous lawsuit. That's based on. That's just people to be manipulated. Active participants in their own life. Keep in mind. A lot of our people are very busy. And they don't have time are people are not Democrats who are on the government dole all day long waiting like bone thugs at harmony waiting for the first of the month. They got lives small groups children kids caravans of extracurricular activities, and they thought that they had this conservative media that would fill them in you know, in the few minutes remaining in the day. So you know, that's a systemic problem that we have to push back against. And that's another reason why we created conservative review more in a moment. One of the latest trends for criminals is going after the title to your home. Why? Well, because for the vast majority of Americans, it's the biggest investment in the most valuable asset. They have is their own home. Now, you might be thinking eight I'm under water. I can't afford the payments as it is. They can kinda have it. It's not the way it works. The way the reason they're going after your home title is looking for equity. So maybe later on when you do have some equity in that home. And you decide you want to make some improvements or help with the kids college or the daughter's wedding someone maybe look at a home equity line of credit or a second mortgage. And all of a sudden that equities all gone because they took your title from you. If you've got loved ones who are elderly retired here, especially vulnerable here one because they're the least likely to be the most tech savvy in two is financially there probably in a place where they're more likely to have their home paid off if not almost they're there for the most equity in that investment. So they're a target rich environment. And that's what's changed here. You know, it used to be when we were growing up if somebody wanted to get the title of your home, they had to go down to the recorder's office the county office city hall comb through a bunch of records proved that they were you to begin with nowadays the stuff is just all online which makes. Especially accessible, and that's why you want to get home title lock because you might have something right now that covers you in case of identity theft. But it doesn't cover your home title and for pennies a day home, title ach will put a virtual barrier around your home's title the instant they detect any sinister activity at all they're gonna help to shut it down. And you never know your home's title may already be compromised. They showed me a print out of mine with a signature that wasn't mine. But it looked because I didn't sign it myself. But it looked pretty darn close to my signature, right? That's how easy it is. For someone to get a hold of it. So sign up at home, title LOC dot com for your free title scan.

I come to be informed on the issues not to be talked down to well. A couple of things. Billy number one. We're going to do the show the way we want to do it. And about the stuff we want it to be about because it's our show, and we're the ones doing it. And then you guys is the consumers get to decide if you like that or not. And if you don't nothing personal, and then we won't be around and we're perfectly okay with that. That's you know, a free market. That's how competition works. So we're gonna keep doing what we're doing. But doesn't mean we can't do it better. So you first complaint is not gonna really register here. Your other lament though might and, you know, this is something I I. I've I've had to work on throughout the course of my career is we certainly don't want to come across like we are talking down to you. Well, let me rephrase that sometimes we do. Sometimes we all need the wakeup call. But on a on a regular basis we try like when we talk about the yesterday. I went on my way to try to make that as acceptable as I possibly could. So you know, guys, this is where you guys come in. If you guys think, hey, man, this is, you know, over people's heads, or it's a little too patronizing by all means man for the flack, and we'll deal with it at that time because I don't want to you know, we're going to talk about the subject matter. We wanna talk about, but we do have a job to make it as acceptable to people as we possibly get. Yeah. So basically if Steve comes across as condescending or patronizing, it's our fault. It's. We say about the same thing. Expert level. How did you just troll me master flay? And in a strange way rather than offended. I feel a sense of almost respect fatherly pride. Yes. Like, I like like, you know, you came here. And you're this quiet, polite home schooled kid, and do you just freaking lit me up? And I kinda just want to look at you and say, I think your man now. I'm really proud. Yeah. Do you think I'm very proud of that dude lit me up and I walked right into it. Well, played you created a monster. It's a beautiful thing too. Let's let's get to this joss. Josh Danielson says what's what's an intimate? Employable skill worth learning and developing for a future in conservative media. Pause because I was going to give answers really condescending and patronizing. Because I mean, I was going to suggest. Yeah. Willingness to be a stenographer for Republicans and power to say, whatever they want you to say, even when it's dishonest, and you know, it's dishonest and you're in a lot of your audience will also it's dishonest. But they want it to be true. So they will receive it and welcome it with open arms. Is what I would say if I was patronizing and condescending nice save. Did you like how I did that? They're okay. But since I'm not right now, I will. You know what? With my originally. No, I'm kidding. I'm kidding. What's the area that you're particularly excited about like, if you wanna if you wanna push back on liberal media narratives, I'd look at you know, organizations like the media research center do media is more of a mainstream. We had Caleb how on from an earlier it's more of a mainstream liberal if not outright liberal media source, but I would look at maybe the work that that a conservative Caleb. Does it a place like that? Because and you even heard him on our roundtable, they push back on some phony baloney, leftist narratives, so but that's what I'd figure out for you. Josh is what what what what are the areas in our industry that you are the most on don't try to do everything. And you know, figure out what your doesn't mean you can't do multiple things. I mean, I do multiple things, but it started with one particular basis. My ability to hold court on a radio show and keep it interesting. And from there. I got opportunities to right, and from there, I got opera -tunities to consult and work on campaigns and think and other things, but it always comes back to there's a reason those things are what I do secondarily. And this is the main thing, this is this is the main thing that I've I have fooled enough people into believing I can do and the other things are if you try to do if you can't have four main things really that's kind of true into every industry have other things you are simultaneously good at, but what's start with your main thing. What's the main thing and conservative media? You want to do that you're the most fired up about and and and then I would have idea that question before I would begin looking at the process by which to you know, look for a career on it. You guys have a thought on that. Yeah. No. I think that's good. That's good advice. Because if you try to get into somewhere that you're really not that passionate about it. Doesn't matter. How good you are what you do. You're not going to enjoy it just general pieces of advice as well. Trying to build your own platform b b before joining anybody else's form that's hard to do. It really is. And I was working. I mean, Steve Steve was calling me randomly when I was watching the very first college football playoff rankings show. And you know, kind of launching Mead where I am right now that was a joint Ormuz break, but try to build you on platform first. And then another piece of advice that that he gave me as well in probably at this point wishes. He hadn't given me make yourself into an indispensable wherever you go. Try as hard as you can't make yourself indispensable. That's that's basically all there is to it. You know, there are there are there are jobs to be had. It's not a huge not a huge number. But if you're good and if you're consistent than than you'll find something. So in the Bill Joan platform advice shoe gave is I think vital. Because even though it's unlikely going to be substantial which you will initially be able to accomplish on your own you want to establish your own voice. I face every day in my line of work and. Some days it's worse than others like today with the president getting his pants pulled down by his own judge and being declared Jim Acosta's beta male. It's a hard day other days when the president's doing, well, it's not that hard. But the the the this is always been the challenge in conservative media. How much are we closely? How much are we a mouthpiece for the Republican party as a counter to the left? That's been that's in that will probably always be a challenge until viable alternative to the Republican party were to emerge, but with this president, given his persona. It's even more of a factor that there are whole careers. Nobody knew an Anna Navarro was two years ago. Nobody no. Now millions of people now because she will find a way to literally blame anything on Donald Trump anything. I mean, literally anything she gets up on a spring day. And it's supposed to be seventy degrees. And it's still cold. She'll tweet out that this is because Trump hasn't addressed to climate change. She will she will blame anything on. And then we have people in our industry. I mean, I don't know how to put it. So just put it. Bluntly. I mean, the Kaley mcelhinney got the job running at the as the spokesman for the NC because she proved to be a very effective liar for Donald Trump during the presidential campaign. You know, I mean, I I went head to head against her on national television Carter line. So we have a we have an industry right now. Where a lot of bones are being made by your willingness to criticize the president when he's right? And or she'll for him when he's clearly wrong. And I I don't know that I could have possibly survived this environment. If I had not established my own platform before it arrived. Okay. And that I had enough of an audience of people who were kind of used to me being a contrarian that what I didn't always conform than meet. We had some rough times. Let's not lie about that. We did. But I think we kind of had a built in callous because because people were used to me kind of zigging when other people zagged already that didn't seem opportunistic. Or personal? Okay. It's important to you know, start via Facebook page. Well, they let you do that nowadays right now, they're not letting me do it. But you know, I mean, if you know writing your own blogs on that page, you know, deter setting your own voice now. So that you if nothing else, you know, what your own boundaries are when you if you do get a break, and you get to go work for somebody. Because I've never really I've been offered opportunities to sell out. But I've never really been pressured to do it because everybody knew going in my answer would be no. So they're so pressuring me is basically asking me to leave. I don't I you can't pressure me because the answers just no it's not a question of what we know. We're not. So you're basically firing me I get it all gonna make a living and nothing personal move on so establish your own voice. I. You wanna add to that? Well, the reason sides are thinking a like on the same topics that I ended up here. I think Steve knew that I was capable of fitting into the paradigm. He just mentioned based on my previous track record at the Dimona. Register you need to be comfortable. Not being light you need comfortable getting shanked your side. And listen, I'm jed eye level status at that. Based on what I endured in my previous employees, the other thing. I would say is do a deep dive on one particular conservative thing become an expert at that. Don't just be this general contractor guy said he's become that but pick there's a guy here locally. I don't think he would mind Shane Vander heart. He became an expert at education he was on Glenn's documentary going. Back against common core that was in theaters nationwide. Shane was on that in that movie. And now, he's more of a broad, you know, social media conservative, but be get really good at something. Because if you get really good at one thing, you're going to know a lot more on how to do deeper dives, and what real conservatives and not the thin gruel that we often get and that leads to our tribalism and your chair, and for people that you, you know, you can't you can't stand because you really shouldn't. It can't stand. At least the way they think about things because you've convinced yourself that thin gruel is the deep dive that is one of the biggest problems we have. So if you're really honest about this beyond enough to pick one thing and own it. You know? And that is that's that's good in any in any, you know, competitive career that you wanna break into is the advice, the Taj gave their, but especially here when you're talking about advocacy media and going back. Let me clear I want to add something to what I said earlier about. And if all up on point about using building your own platform, building your own voice. I think one of the things that got Michael Medved was at Salem before me. But we were there together when we were there in him, and I had a call once and Michael is far more moderate to liberal than me on numerous issues. Okay. But he's also a really sweet guy and couldn't have been more respectful to me despite ideological differences him, and I were talking on the phone once and and he had asked me, hey, are you getting any pressure from management because of your stance on Trump? And I was not getting any some of that was probably because I was not in a premium day part Salem, basically created a day part for me at night nine pm to midnight eastern to basically test me out. See if I could be a future prime, you know, time slot for them. And so that was part of it. You know, I I wasn't in a premium afternoon drive time like med was on drive time two hundred stations around the country. They had a lot more invested in them. So that's part of it. And but then the other. Part was Salem new when they brought me in. I'm that I was going to be tough to tame. If the goal was to make conforming. That's just not what I do. And don't hire me. If that's it that doesn't mean I'm fit for you. But then don't hire me. If that's what you're looking for like, they kind of knew by bringing me in. I was going to be you know. I was going to be the stepbrother here the red-headed stepchild. They knew that. I think where they struggled with med was that they saw Medved willing to carry water for Republicans his entire career. And all of a sudden Trump comes up, and he doesn't wanna do it anymore. You see what I'm saying? I think that was a struggle for them. Now, michael. I'm sure would say, hey, man. There's a big difference between carrying the water of my of Mitt Romney and the way he handles his business compared to Donald Trump. I'm sure that's what he would say. And we probably would agree with them to certainly some extent about that. But if you're the management, Salem, I'm sure it was difficult to figure out. Hey, we asked you to carry water for team GOP to go out there and beat the Democrats for twenty years, and all the son you're saying that this is a bridge too far when it's the most important election umbrella. I think I think it's important if if you wanna be a contrary, even if you don't, but whatever it is you want to be established that voice before you get underneath a large platform. Otherwise, they will assume. That you're joining their platform to conform to the culture that they already have in place think that's wise. Oh, that's what I said. I agree. A hundred percent Aaron you wanna add any of that at all conservative media that no that is very wise because. Yeah. You you don't want it? You don't don't expect don't expect that any where you go in media. Even if it's opinionated or you get to editorialize, the people want your opinion that the people who hire you your opinion because we see I mean, that's what Steve wants. And I mean, I I I can't hardly put two sentences together. I still get to say stuff. But even let you fire gun. Yeah. I know. But yeah, don't assume if if you do get somewhere, and you haven't already established your voice, and it's you're getting paid to editorialize little bit. Don't don't assume that they automatically want your opinion? They want an opinion, maybe not yours. Now, let me say this as we get to the end of the show everything I just said notwithstanding is all true. Even the even the the problems that go along with doing this for a living all of that is true. Okay. I have my differences with David French as of late, but he's got a Twitter thread out there right now about what him and his family are facing face. Some of that myself. You know, that's what we're kindred spirits on that. Okay. That's goes to what you just said. If you want to do this. You know, make sure yet some really thick skin that all of that notwithstanding. As as my very first boss in radio once told me sure beats going down, my chaff the flashlight. Okay. I mean, we get to come in your every day and essentially get re if you know paid fairly well to stand up for what we believe in you. And I both loaded trucks at UPS, that's cross training workout that gig. Okay. There's a lot worst more difficult things roughened on a ninety nine degree day that our listeners and viewers do for a living because of you we get to do this instead. Okay. And we are we don't ever let us lose sight of the fact we are and please don't lose sight of it. We are very very thankful to you for that have a great weekend. John three seventeen.

Cosplay Confidential Episode 84 Silken Stitches

"You're listening to the PODCAST DETROIT visit. Www dot I'd pass Detroit Dot Com for Information Martha counter. I'm told I'm your host and we are coming to you live from the podcast studios in Beautiful Royal Oak Michigan with our faithful producer. Will How's IT hanging? It's going pretty well. And our co host Sean. Hello Hello. How's it going? Oh you know pretty great amid all of these strife and worry of the world are still here recording and it's pretty awesome So we have a fabulous guest on the show today who I had the privilege of meeting at CRTV to this year and she has so much wonderful work displayed on her instagram. Page that you can find and you can follow along while religious while you're listening to the episode We please welcome and from silken stitches. Welcome to the show how I thank you so much for having me hand bigger so so silken stitches. How did you come up with with that name for your for your instagram page? So I came up with that. Gosh I think about three years ago and actually started out because I wanted to is combined my sewing that was wanted to display as well as the fact that I do aerial silks which I don't post about too much anymore But so I was thinking about like silks thinking about just like the I'm on soccer for Liberation of course and so I just kind of came up with Combining Silken and stitches. And so. That's where that came from. You know sometimes. The simplest is really the best solution. I was actually really amazed that it was available. So good for me. Thanks so so aerial silks. So you don't do that much anymore. Yeah there's a whole other story along with that I have A pole fitness journey as well as a aerial silks journey But Yeah I've kind of gotten a little bit away from it because of a bunch of various reasons that we won't go into but I do really appreciate Aerial Fitness and pull fitness. And so sometimes they talk a little bit about that on I. Account Especially trying to balance you know my work life of sewing and then also. My fitness life of silks and poll. So that's that's really fascinating so as far as as far as the stitches go. How how long have you been sewing? I've been sewing for. I think about twelve years I started when I was in university when I started studying theater. That was one of the first classes that we started doing Costuming and sewing and just kind of took to sewing classes like a fish to water and I picked it up really quickly and we did like all sorts of signs and I just kind of fell in love with the process of it and so then. I've been doing sewing for costumes in theater ever since then so kind of like so when you were first getting started out in university and whatnot. What would you say within that? I like year two years. What would you say were some of the biggest challenges when you were first starting off that you would consider yourself out to just be natural proud on a lot of the spatial relationships that have to happen for sewing? Made a lot of sense to me like for me. I am a sucker for a good logic puzzle. Good like jigsaw puzzle. So all of like the shapes. That wouldn't seem like they would go together or you have to inverse something in order to make it into another object. That was stuff that made a lot of sense to be right away Like one of the first projects that I did. Excuse me Was a two to three and When we're doing it to a two two miles and miles of tool that have to be gathered into a little waistband and so that was something that made a lot of San and I was able to do it very easily because I was able to kind of figure out what it looked like visually and make it into that. That's something that we don't really touch on much. Here is the the spatial relationship of all the different pieces that you have to put together? So that's fascinating. What was the most challenging bill that you did when you were in university? I think honestly the thing that challenged me the most was when I was a senior I kind of was dabbling possibly with the idea of costume designing as opposed to acting which is one of the other things that I tried to pursue at that point and so there was a a semester where I took on two or three students shows that does not costume designing actually during that year. They did not like costumes and finding it so that was a really big challenge to me. Because I didn't enjoy like coming up with the ideas on the fly I think honestly one of the other reasons like hospital was so appealing to me because the design is already there for you could work on the technique the construction of it and putting all the pieces together like a puzzle As opposed to designing so. I'd say that that was most challenging thing. Wow Yeah and to take on that big. A load in in one go is really that that can be overwhelming absolutely One of the other things that I didn't really care for in that was since I was and they were smaller shows so it wasn't really terrible but I did wind up doing a lot of late nights by myself And I didn't have any other like friends or community to help me and like stitch with me and things like that so it just seemed very isolating and it was rewarding But one or the other things about the cost of community. That's the nicest that you do have a huge breadth of knowledge to draw from. You have a community. Even if you're alone sitting in your room working on things at two o'clock in the morning you know that there's there's somebody up who can help you in one encouraging layer another right. Yeah whether that's providing advice or just a you can do it right absolutely which is also something very important some sitting here and I'm going through your your instagram and I came across what might be my favorite assume that you've made his. You're April O'Neil. Says you may have for your sister. Well I'm just give us your posts says that you made so many beginning mistakes but I mean this looks flawless to me. So like what mistakes do you think you made on this costume and how you kind of change going forward since making that one man so I would not say. I'm like at the time that I made the April O'Neil. I was not a pattern drafter. I was not very expert at any of these things. I was most interested winning stuff so I took a pants pattern and he took a shirt pattern and I've put them together. Didn't quite realize how much rise you needed a sewing term which is very important when you have a jumpsuit. Like that in order for the person who is wearing jumpsuits alike fit or bend so it was really uncomfortable anytime she would do literally anything other than stand there and at this moment I was like mortified that I made her something that she couldn't. Actually you know bend or sit in So that was one of my really major mistakes with that because I definitely did not know what I was doing but I did it anyway. So so what would you recommend this? Someone who's making jumpsuit. To avoid those mistakes I would say. Get a jumpsuit pattern. Don't reinvent the wheel like you would just put pants together. And you put a shirt together and you combine your problem. But there's a reason that the pattern companies have put so much development into these things and You know reading is always good and I don't tend to be of the reader usually just you. Things take people follow their patterns. Probably read the instructions. That's usually a good thing to do. Yeah and that's that's one people often will look at something and go. Oh I can I can figure that out. But that's a that's a really great example because yeah it looks great in that picture where she's standing upright and not really doing a whole lot and it looks really cute but yeah but then you say you say that you. Oh okay that makes that makes a whole lot of sense of why it's important to have that kind of pattern. Yes yes so. It's always good to have those mistakes to learn from them but you know everyone has their own process absolutely so when did you start the transition from making costumes for other people into making costumes for yourself I believe one of my major. I Cost plays on costumes for myself was really only about three or four years ago. when I saw Milana I decided that I really really wanted to do that costume. And so that was when I decided I was actually going to cost play. Go to see too many to as the person who cost plays so it was not actually that long ago so I personally tend to find myself thinking that I am still pretty relatively new to the cost play community right because as far as the community goes. It's still new to you. But as far as a the skill levels like you're you're right up there with with with some of the best of them because you've been doing the actual craft for so long Yes I would agree with that and I thank you for that I do have that advantage of the fact that I have been selling for as long as I have so. That's always good too high and so make Mwana. I'm assuming it's the one for your where you were. You had longer hair when you're doing it ray or was that actually league that is. I see it. I see it now. It looks really great. Thank you and so the Mwana that I saw you in this year at C. Two would you say that's like a grown up Milana? Oh sure I'll yes for me. That was kind of more like my casual Moulana because I tend to be a person that doesn't really like the No straps situation area so I just like made a couple of changes. Oh and I also didn't want any Rafi of because you know sheds and all of that so I kinda just did a couple more adjustment so that I can easily transition the pieces that I've made into more of a casual wear situation. Yeah no grownup sure. Little Bit More Edgy. With an undercut you know. What is what is being grown up if not choosing comfort over style of Louis to that So in your current In your current role as a as a sewer or a costumer right. Now what are you? What does that entail for you because I know you do you post frequently about your theater costuming. And it's gorgeous and you always you always make sure to mention you know so and so's designs whoever designed it and you know the experience of of putting that together What all does that? Job Entail So I work as the title is a first hand in a costume shop and so I'm not the draper but I'm part of the teen And so that means is that I'm luckily of employed by my theater pretty much year round to do all of the Broadway shows and the so My job tends to not ever be the designer and thankfully And not usually make the patterns but usually make the cut the patterns and prepare them for this fishers and sometimes pitch the costumes as well. Depending on what the show is. And how many how many looks were going for that show So it tends to be an awful lot of construction which I love personally occasionally. It involves a little bit of patterning drafting and draping But Yeah it's really nice to be part of a small team that Produces all of the costumes for Our brother shows yeah. That's so great that you were able to find something. That's rate in your specific niche of costuming putting things together part yup very very grateful for that cutting things up at the back together. Is They know right? It seems completely counterintuitive. But here we are exactly Is there a favourite show recently within the past year or two that you've gotten to That you've gotten to work on from a not not a design standpoint since you said you don't do that but just overall favourite shown. I eat like a couple years ago. We worked on Sweeney. Todd and those were really cool costumes. It was all very gothic and very victorian but also in a very Deconstructed type of way. And what was the shame about Sweeney? Todd in the fact that our theater is so large which is useful It's eighteen hundred seats but a lot of times. The details are very lost on On the audience that is in the house. So that's one of the other reasons why I really like being able to take close up pictures because then like my audience. Can you see some of the details That don't always make it onstage And I really really enjoyed working on the texture really fantastic and I thought that this shape and still wet. This really beautiful. That's really cool. And that's that's not one of the ones that pops up like immediately on instagram seed. You have to go looking for it but it's true it's totally worth it I think from. There's a posted February about your your gothic from your from your Victorian February Day Twenty Gothic. It's it's gorgeous. You can see the detail. It's so that's got to be really rewarding Absolutely I mean I'm a sucker for detail. Anyone who scroll Stern instagram page. A little bit. We'll realize that and so all of those little tedious things that people don't tend to know or appreciate or want to do. I just suck that stuff up. It's Super Fun for me. That's awesome so you noticed. There's a post that you made about incorporating more of your historical costuming into your everyday wear. What's that been like on the? Yes I have been doing that I've been trying to do that at least `specially with the custom pieces that I have made or just like regular costumes regular clothes that I've made For example I we were working on newsies Or last fall and we made this really beautiful skirt pattern. That's Four what was it. I think it was eighteen. Ninety nine with the time period and the really flattering silhouette and it goes down to the ankle. Just a regular walking skirt so I actually took that. Ungraded it up to my My measurements and then I just kind of chopped it to go right below the knee and so that is one of my next projects. I'm going to make something that is vaguely eighteen. Ninety-nine but also something that I can wear every day and not have it be like a fabled statement piece in the fact that I'm dressing historically and right in my regular wear just you know eighteen. Ninety-nine casual absolutely yeah. Isn't everybody do that? I mean in some way shape or form so we talked about how Milwaukee was your first 'cause play and that you were really drawn to that character and how much There's some reason why you hadn't done 'cause play before that yet very much mostly because I couldn't find myself to be motivated to stay in my workspace to make something that I wouldn't get paid for Because sewing is great but I was used to many years of working in a costume shop where I would get a paycheck so the things that I would make and cost play. I would have to invest a lot of time into something that I feel really passionately for because I knew I wasn't going to get paid for it but in other ways you know going to the convention and seeing all of the people like that is a payment in a different form and I needed a character to really draw me in to make that transition and a lot of was definitely it. No that's totally understandable. Like when you're already doing this as your day job it's hard to. It's hard to find a way to do that as a hobby. And so that's awesome so one thing that jumps out if you look through your posts versus like a quote typical 'cause player Which I mean. What is that nowadays? But what does that? Nowadays 'em so honestly. I'm really glad that the sort of stereotypes of like skinny white chicks and skinny white dudes are like or skinny white chicks and buff. White dudes are getting broken down into a different like more and more people are getting more accepting of Qasr play of different types in Qasr play Were there any challenges to you as a minority going to play or did you even consider that at all? I considered it but and I do feel there are challenges but I know that most of them are in my head because the world of cost play has grown so much and has become so accepting and everyone enjoyed being able to see the diversity that has turned this cost of rolled into what it is. I know that a lot of times in my brain I am just like well. Maybe I shouldn't cost by these people. Maybe I shouldn't do these particular characters because they're too tall or you know things of that nature And I am trying to break those down myself And I know that they exist and I acknowledge that I have to you know push past some of those barriers and not necessarily just be attracted to certain types of characters because of whichever reasons. I've been lucky enough that even though I have been kind of new to the costly community all of the characters cost played have been powerful women of color which I did on purpose of because I really enjoy seeing the representation. There is in media and entertainment nowadays for their for the people of color and That is something that I do. Think about pretty frequently. But I know that you know any type of challenges that would be. External are not ones that I should pay attention to and I just have to. If there is suddenly a character that is not my buddy type or ethnicity or anything like that. I definitely shouldn't let that stop me if I absolutely have my heart set on cost lane. Somebody and I'm sure that that's probably going to happen in the near future. I couldn't say but I'm sure it'll happen. Let's really refreshing that to hear that mentality that maturity at which you come at a which you arrive at that the I phrased that really poorly. It's really refreshing refreshing to hear. How much surely you handle that. Because it's very easy for to get swept up in. Oh whilst the society or the comments section or you know how the Internet says that. I can't 'cause play this because of how I look or what I edified as or what have you and it's really refreshing to hear someone say that the here to hear someone say that the struggle is really just within you. It's not really about everybody else. So we need to start wrapping up. But is there any one piece of advice that you would give to beginning? 'cause PLAYER. I would say just start and I know that. Seems like a cop out any kind of But whatever reservations there are if it's whatever you're selling capabilities are If it's a financial or aid just insecurity feeling. It's always better to just do a saying if it's going to the thrift store and finding pieces that you can use and kind of or modify If it's going on the Youtube and looking at how somebody else did something and get inspired by them. It's there's just so much knowledge and inspiration out there and I think that the best thing to do is just kind of start doing stuff and making mistakes. You'RE GONNA learn no totally. It's mistakes are scary and who among us in this room has started has looked at a wigan gone knack can't do that. I'll make too many mistakes and go. Oh speaking of which. I never even mentioned that but very briefly do you. What do you do work with wigs? What's had do you try and shy away from wigs? What's that experience? Been like for you from wigs. Actually Yeah I don't do big very often but I kind of have to sometimes it. Since my hair is so short I again have looked up a lot of youtube videos about really frustrated with things. I've also just straight up straight out commission friends. Who Do wigs and ask them for help? Or sometimes I asked for people's advice on Instagram or facebook So yeah I do a little bit of weeks but I try not to do too many because you know I don't have the most use for the amount of storage in lake sometimes just intimidate me for storage and offered and then sometimes you stumble across the perfect character like Bo where it all just works beautifully. Exactly definitely on purpose. Who's next person from critical role again constantly as senior question on my list? If I were to say right now I would love to death And I think runner-up would be a Neela because I really love her. Character is well Nice. Was Hoping you'd say clay. Oh Man oh man. That'd be an interesting one. I honestly like as much as I love critical role. I don't know if I'm committed enough to do body paint. Poll makeup for for that. I commend anyone. Who Does that girl? Same I cannot. I can't think of doing full body paint ever in my life but God. That's you know. Seeing Kaz plays is really what starts getting me into things that I wouldn't normally be into or things that I would hesitate listening to or watching and I think the amount of critical role. 'cause plays that. I've seen has convinced including yours has convinced me okay. Maybe I need to actually like do you listen to it do you watch it. What is it is either or elevator pitch if you want me to okay. What's what's your elevator pitch for Courtesy Kiss for trying out critical role. Is I would say personally I would start with campaign to. It's a completely new story lines so you don't have to worry about campaign one The production value is very very good. I would say start on Youtube so that you understand what you're looking at what you're listening to so you can match who the actors are and who Their characters are once you get familiar with that. If you want to you can switch to the podcast version. You need to do something with your hands like personally. I was working on like Isabela cost play when I started listening to pretty parole and being able to have a narrative story a high fantasy narrative story told very low Like a podcast worked really well for me sewing not needing to like look constantly and have visual accused for things so it's an awful lot of contents but trying to get intimidated because it goes fight much faster than you expected too nice right. It's Super Guy. Spent all of last year listening to campaign one and then I'm like episode fifty. Something happen to since the beginning of this year. Okay all right all right. You've got me convinced I've got some time on my hands. It's not for everybody that's true. I do play indecent. I would probably enjoy it. Also go another game mechanics gill on that right away. Cole came in from the other direction because I didn't play. Ged All out. As I started listening to it. And I kind of learned how to play the Andy through Nice Yeah I definitely learned a lot about fifth addition from watching fantasy high on college so yeah I play three five so currently I have not played a fifth addition yet so maybe one day one day I'll join the real world but one last question and you've had a little bit of time to hopefully at the back of your brain right now but you could combine any two characters that you've caused played to make one in custody. What would you do? I am going to cheat a little bit and say I would like to do a Mwana but in a deity world took so I would have to mold over and figure out exactly what you know race and class. She would do. But I feel like that would be a really cool costumes. You what kind of Moana would be in a DNC world. I see like she has to be some kind of Druid but also like a cross last something true. May She's got such a deep connection to nature and the ocean and everything but like some like cross class with something else. Man Rain Jurors. Oh yeah like Ranger druid or something. I'm sure some. There's some specific class from a subgroup of books. That has a like a Moana class. I'm trying to think of like If there are like gods in the ocean maybe should be like a Paladin. Oh Dude Yeah. There's definitely so many. Oh Heck Yeah Oh. That's like the perfect right there Future planning I mean really though there is so within the Paladin class there is a nature base one that she called like the Green Knights. I do a pal to the Cat Lord and that's what I play. I'm kind of a hippy. Monique eubanks worships the cat. Lord it's pretty sweet So while it's been so much fun chatting with you and hopefully we'll get to do this again sometime absolutely So much for having me here.

So I don't know beyond that if we want to. You know, throw too much else out there because it might be out of the context of the conversation.

Maybe more than ever since we started this series today, we could use a little theology Thursday, can I get an Amen on that and an exercise them. Maybe that as well for sure. We have been going through the book of Colossians and again, some ground rules. If you're new to this at the Thursday podcast, it's the first time we've ever done a bible study. We're not using any commentaries or any notes. We are sitting around the three of us and letting the word of God speak for itself. No, we're not telling you what it means to us because we don't care and you should care less than that or just do, and I don't care what it means to you. We care about what it means now. It means to me what it means to you, what it means to everybody else would it actually meets what it has to say to us, not what it means to us, and if we can find a current or a contemporary cultural application, which given what we are providential having. It's funny when we started this series, we had no idea that everything we're talking about right now with cavenaugh was going to happen. And when I look at where we left off. I mean, these things had not been scripted. We're not planning them out ahead of time because we want again, just let the word of God speak to us right where we're at right now. And when I look at where we left off in the book of Colossians oboe. This providential kind of this is this is Harry back your neck kind of stuff of where we're at right now when you consider what today's conversation is. So we're going to pick up the conversation in a moment if you have questions or criticisms because we're not, you know, I'm not a Guston toz NOP Peter errands. Not to RC sprawl. Okay. We're just dudes, you know. So we're not saying that everything we're saying here is even right on the money. So if you have questions or constructive criticisms when you send them in, I'm saving them in the folder. And when we finished this bible study will then go back and answer as much of that correspondence as we can as ready to go. Yeah, let's do it. Colossians two, verse eight, and it's really the verse when I when I had the Piff Anita do a bible study for Thursday, I think told you guys, I was sitting in church and our church was doing the book of Romans. And this verse just kept pounding into the back of my head. And it's why I decided to pick this book. Be careful that no one takes you captive through philosophy, an empty deceit based on human tradition based on the elements of the world rather than Christ. Now I'm gonna stop right there for a minute. I'm gonna read that again. That's an ac- SP which is what our churches. I'm gonna go to the ESPN which is my personal faith. See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit according to human tradition according to the elemental spirits of the world and not according to Christ. Captive. What's another word for captive slave slave. Jailed jailed when Jesus comes out of the desert and publicly announces himself, and he shows up at the synagogue in his hometown and re in the book of Lucchini reads the scroll of Isaiah. And he reads from Isaiah sixty one where the prophet. Foretells the messianic ministry of the sentiment. He says, the spirit of the sovereign Lord is upon me. To set the what captive captives free. To set the captives free. Free from what. Philosophy and empty deceit according to human tradition, the elemental spirits of this world. To set you free from the lies. You and I believe. That are in slaving us the idolatry. The UN I succumb to that has enslaved us. The things that the we believe that causes to behave. In sinful ways. The things you and I believe that causes us to behave and sinful ways. Because that's sinful behavior is also destructive behavior for us. In those that we do it with into. This is what Jesus came to set us free from that. We were captive to this. Are we seeing any evidence in our culture right now. Of being captive by empty deceit, philosophy. That is of human tradition not of divine origin. Spirits of this world or all creation groans from sin. Are we seeing any evidence of this now? Now, here's the test though. See. Gonna make somebody Matt. Jesus said, beware of wolves. They're fangs are sharp as are their claws run when you see them, is that what you said? No, no. What did he say to be where alls chiefs, clothes, wolves, and sheep's clothing. Now are wolves dangerous? Yes, is a wolf a dangerous animal? Yeah. So the fact that Jesus didn't single out be were of a wolf, doesn't mean that a wolves, not a dangerous animal, but the presumption. You could reasonably conclude the presumption of Jesus not feeling as if he needed to warn us to be where of the dangers of a wolf. What would be the? What would be the assumption we can draw from what he is assuming about us? What do you think that probably pools are already dangerous? We already know what we see the wolf. We know what the wolf is. So when I said quoting Paul's words here see to it that no one takes you by philosophy and empty seat according to human tradition according to the elemental spirits of this world and not according to Christ right away, our minds are gonna go where to the wolf. Our minds are going to go to the wolf. And we're going to recognize. Hedonism progressivism moral relativism, Ritter recognize the wolves, right? We're going to recognize that. Now what I say we Paul is writing this to believers in Colossians, not unbelievers. He's writing to believers. So when I say we, I mean believers unbelievers may not understand some of that spirit of the age stuff is bad. And likely if they're unbelievers, they're buying into it or believing themselves. Okay. In this case, we're talking specifically to believers. The unbeliever will debate whether what a wolf is like we debate now what's a man? What's it woman? What bathroom do we use? What's a life? What's a dollar Bill? What's an economy? What's a job? What's right? What's a freedom? What's a science, right? The unbeliever will debate every every elemental spirit of this world. They will not recognize the difference. You know, wolf in a wolf sheep's clothing. And they may not even recognize there's a wolf. This is written to believers. So the believer has the base level discernment by the act of God working directly in you and is lives. We accept the basic assumptions of creation. We accept what in a Konami is. What a person is. What agenda is we? Well, when we're doing it right anyway. We're doing it right. We clean to those absolutes. We looked for the cut and dried answers. We love when things are spell it out. Our spirit. Urines for those things, desires them. We don't like the grey areas. We don't like the nihilism. We don't like the murky. We know we want to know who's wearing the blackout, who's warned the white hat? Who are the good guys, the bad guys. The unbelievers not comfortable with good guys and bad guys unless they can make people. They don't agree with the bad guy in every situation where the bad guy or not. But in this case for the believer, we've got enough evidence of the of the work of God's handiwork craftsmanship in our lives. We understand the base assumptions of the planet. We understand the basis of the world, so we don't have to be warned. A wolf is dangerous. We know. In some of us recognized, we're the wolf, which is why we repented our sins to stop devouring the other. But when you heard me read those words, if you jumped right away to the human philosophy that you instantly know, your spirit instantly is repelled by your spirit. Instantly says, that's bat. Danger will Robinson void that don't go down, don't go there. Don't play that. Whatever your euphemism your colloquialism cultural reference. You prefer your era. If your spirit went right to that place, that's not what Paul I believe is talking about. Paul is going to assume here you and I as believers know this for if we wanted the elemental. And I don't mean like certain sins. We find fund that we hope we hold in the dark and we cling to secretly. I mean, as a world, an all encompassing worldview. As an all encompassing worldview. If we wanted the ele- mental things of this world, if we wanted to be deceived, why did we convert and become Christians? It doesn't make any sense. Shallan sheer right in line with judge begins in the house of God. I look at the beam in your own is opposed to the speck of dust in your brothers. Jesus feeds five thousand people not counting women and children. Then he begins to say, now if you wanna come after you get a drink of my blood needed my flesh that people think this guy's a freak show. They get up and walk away. He lets them go turns to his followers own disciples and says, are you going to leave me too? See in the kingdom of God. The challenge always begins from the inside out, not the outside at character and integrity is measured from the inside out, not the outside. We're not judged by. Are we better than the people out here? We're judged by. Is there evidence going on inside of us that we're becoming more like Christ? That's what we're judged by. Jesus says, hey, even the pagans, love their children. Even the pagans, love people who love them. We love your enemies. Will you be different? What's another word for holy set apart different. So the assumption here is as believers. We will know what a wolf is. We will not want to be wolves. We will not like wolves. We will want to run from wolves or confront them. If God calls us to that is the assumption. The danger. Is when Saron appears outside the gates of more door cast is an angel of light. That's the danger when it looks like Senate talks like, or it looks like our nationalistic or try ballistic preferences and and proclivities. I'm black. This black person says they've been abused and rather than they've been abused by the police and rather than take a look at what's the truth. I are with our common blackness truth be damned or let's switch it around. I'm white. Am I black? Christian friend says they've been abused by the police and because I'm white and I think these things are way overblown and I watched Fox News all day. I think he's alliance sack right? That's that's right there. That is what Paul is a dressing here. He's not addressing the obvious enemy. You know this, the Holy Spirit is at work in your life at least fundamental level, you know, what is bad at a basic level. You get it because if you didn't know what was bad, what were you ever repenting from to convert in the first place if you don't know basically? No. Right and wrong in basically what sin was then what are you repenting. What is it? You recognize you need to turn away from in order to become a new creation that if you don't know basic right and wrong. No, this is this is now we're Vance levels here. Guys. We're not doing our times tables. We're doing some algebra now. We got letters in the math formulas now we're stepping it up. Notch ear. Relieve in elementary school, move onto at least middle school. Now. The terms human tradition I believe is very important. What is it traditional Paula Jones. Paul in his letters uses a phrase trustees saying, uses this phrase in his letters a lot. Trustees saying, meaning this is an established divine tradition. We are passing down to other churches in generations, but then there's the human tradition. Well, you know, if you guys don't sing these songs, have you have these instruments if you don't dress this way? If you don't, if you don't believe Christ returns this one certain way, and we do. Human traditions. Good thing. We did a seven part series on world veal. Yes. See the challenge here is. This isn't. This is not. Beware of the external threat. This is a beware of the internal one. What are the things you want to believe that you want to synchronize with your Christianity to use a phrase from our seven deadly worldviews? What are the things you want to synchronize with your faith? Because they seem reasonable and right to you. Human tradition? What's the math? You are doing human tradition? If you don't vote for Trump, you hate America. You're not really a Christian and you're just going to let the country go to the pagans. If you do vote for Trump who have no standards, no morality, and you put America above your Christian faith. I mean, both of those things could be true that could not be it depends on the individual person's motivations, but are they? Are they fundamental absolute philosophical known quantities? No, they're not. They're empty deceit and human tradition is what they are. You must honor my human tradition. Let me another. Let me give you another term for human tradition. For this. Tribalism. My tribalism, the way we do things. The third church deter Sherry matters to cultural matters. The matters of this world. We believe in that we prefer. You got to believe in my tribalism. Over yours. We all recognize ultimately you're getting a lot of people that believe in orthodox, maybe not maybe not everybody catches onto rob bell. At the same time. Some of us might be more inclined to be a little bit harsher. It's the minute rob l. colors outside the lines. We ju- we re crush others of us, maybe my bend more toward mercy. So we give rob bell more the benefit out because we saw some of the things he did that we liked before we decide, no, this isn't for real, but the minute rob bell finally takes off the sheepskin reveals. He's a wolf and says, there is no sin love winds. There is no hell. Everybody goes to heaven orthodoxy, which may not have agreed about what they thought about rob bell for years ago. The minute rock when he was wearing the sheepskin, the mini takes the sheepskin off and just shows you the things in the clause orthodoxy becomes United. That's the wall. That's that's bad guy, bad guy. And that's why we don't buy books anymore. He's gotta hang out with Oprah now. 'cause that's only we can make any money because we, we recognize that we see the wolf. We get bad guy. Don't do that. Did we recognize them. Five years before that. How many times you let them come speak in our churches because he said, what we wanted to hear. You want to know when it really when I got really turn onto rob l. o. sitting in church one Sunday, we were playing. One of his videos is what they were called in the video is about Saint Peter out on the belt walking on the water. And of course, Peter takes his eyes off of Christ looks down and sinks. Now, the proper Exegen ical teaching there is when he was in Christ. He could do great things when he took his eye off of crisis, John fifteen five for I am the vine you're the branch, those who are those who are with me can can do anything those apart from you can do nothing. So Peter took his eyes off of Christ, his eyes on himself, and he didn't have the power to do what he was doing because the power wasn't him. It was Jesus. Rob l. turns this around to. Well, it wasn't just that Peter lost faith in Christ, but Peter forgot that Christ had faith in him. And I left out of my seat right there in church. My wife had to hold me down literally physically pushed me back down in my seat. And I went up to that pastor. We only been there for a few weeks and I said, do you know what your student teacher? Because it was it was the student teacher preaching that day. 'cause you're sending the kids off to school. I said, you know what? Your youth ministry preacher just put up there on that screen. He said, yeah, I do. I can promise you. That's never happening in this pulpit ever again. And when I saw him the next Sunday, correct it from the pulpit and it never happened again. We joined that church Bob DVR still good friends of this day. That's a church. I used to preach at. See, that's the test. You get no points for recognizing rob l. as the wolf when he when he finally tells you I am the wolf the points come from. Did you recognize the wolf before that when he was still lying? He's wearing the sheets clothes. That's the test for us as believers. I believe Paul is alluding to here. Are we capable. Of routing this out. Before out itself. Now we have to be careful because we can also become the THEO nerd police. And the reason why for many years on the show I refuse to talk about the because it just brought out the absolute worst and everybody where there's no mercy, no grace, no place for people to explore to learn to question to be wrong. There's one being a heretic is one thing being wrong as another. That I lack faith. I'm just wrong about something I may be vehemently wrong. The heretic wants to persuade you that wrong is right, and he knows it's wrong to. That's why he's a heretic because we show him that it's wrong. He won't change his mind. He'll just keep lying. We go to the next line for in him. That's Christ a whole fullness of deity. Beating Jesus is Lord Jesus is God incarnate. The head of all for him is the fullness. Hopefulness of deity dwells bodily, and you have been filled in him who is the head of all rule and thority meaning who decides here, who decides what is fill empty philosophy, emptied deceit, human tradition, the elemental spirits of this world who's the one that decides what is just we're just wrong about something or this is absolutely something that seeks to imprison us in heresy, who decides that Paul answers the question who's in charge here. Jesus Christ. That's right. He decides not your favorite theologian. Not your denomination, not your favorite bible verse. Not your favorite podcast. The king of heaven and earth does he decides. Which means we should be very hesitant about vehemently going to war with each other about anything Christ has not explicitly addressed yet. You guys do in the Catholic side of things, but over here on the eve Angelico side, I'm sure Aaron can agree with me on this. Most of our scars come from destroying each other on stuff. Jesus never explicitly talked about. Because you know why we do that because we're actually captive to our own philosophies in human traditions, whether I can have a bourbon or not, or whether I have to teetotal whether I can dance or not, or what I can wear skirts, you're not. Whether there's a tribulation or whether the is triumphant, you know, whether there's a literal rapture or it's, it's a metaphor from the Greek word harp as oh, from Saint Jerome's Latin vogue it or not. Whether I think I chose Christ of my own free will, or I believe in double secret. You know, hyper Calvinism predestination or not. These are the things we kill each other over. This is what's going on in your denomination right now. Oh. Is your pope has been confronted with sin in the church, and he is choosing to respond not with church tradition like how did we. The proper you correct me if I'm wrong. But to me, my understanding of of Catholic history ecclesial Adji is enough. That is I read it. The proper reaction to sit in the church is to look at the tradition of how the church dealt with this in the past and be like, let's just make sure we don't go overboard as they did with the inquisition. But other than that, the spirit of it is, yeah, let's get rid of these folks. He's actually responding with anti seat human traditional, but what's have words of dialogue. Let's talk global warming. Let's talk social Justice which are doing nothing to confront the actual sin that is in the church. I wrong about that. No, it's it's been a disaster on the level of you can actually legitimately ask antichrist's question. Yes. And this is why faithful captain Catholics who wonder who already understand because you had a conversion. She wonder stand the basic good and evil concept, and you read. Recognizing, wait a minute guys were confronting evil with the exact same empty deceit, human tradition, elemental spirits spirits spiritism of this world that caused it in the first place that dog'll hunt ain't gonna work. That's why there's a conflict. The conflict exists because of this, this scripture right here. One group of Catholics are like, this is were our church right now is captive by empty deceit, human philosophy, human tradition, not church tradition because the church and the Catholic view is transcendent through space and time, right? So these are your human traditions, the new fad of progressivism and social Justice. These are your traditions, the world's elemental spirit tradition. This isn't the churches, transcendent tradition. You're trying to cure cancer with cancer. Yes, and that's where the conflict is. You are caging the lion? Yes. Yeah. I think our challenge here. Especially after the events of today. This cultures get a devolve, whatever try ballistic notions you think exist now are going to get worse. Whenever bitter cleaning there is to human philosophy, human tradition, an empty deceit, you think exist right now is only going to get worse. We have one group of people in this country who believe if they disagree with your philosophy, they can destroy you on a personal level without any guilt or remorse. Soon. The other tribe is going to decide Mark my words, they will. They will decide this by and large, they will decide that would view is at stake is so momentous that it's okay to return fire with fire. This is going to leave. Shrinking feet underneath the ground of us that want to live by Paul's words here in Colossians two, eight and not. It's gonna get harder. And attention to the temptation to say that the alternative tribe is so bad. It is okay to give up all of my virtue. Here's what Paul says to you. For in Christ, the whole fullness of deity dwells not your nationalistic identity, not your cultural heritage, not your political, partisan proclivities, not your view of history. You have no idea what history as if I would have told you guys brick having all was appointed on July ninth. If I were to come in here on July tenth and said, guys, that milquetoasts bushy we were just watching. We're going to be having a hearing in the Senate and a couple of months about whether he presided over gang rapes, you decide what to me. Drug test much here we doing drug testing at the day, show update my resume, believe just about anything at this point you could if I said that two months ago, would you believe that. Probably out of him. Now it's going to get worse. Yes, much worse. Yes. A lot worse. Thomas. Which means the temptation, the temptation to believe the wolf is your biggest enemy. Let me rephrase that. The temptation to believe the wolf is your only anime. That's a better way of saying, could believe me playing times. The wolf is based at me. The wolf is your only enemy, and therefore since my the wolf is my only enemy, whatever I do to defend myself from the wolf becomes justified. Oh, that human tradition, an empty deceit is going to grow all the more. All the more. And Paul says, you can't go there. You're not permitted to do that. Just as you're not permitted to say, my wife won't give me sex, and Paul says, we're to give each other's bodies to one another. She is in sin and by the way, unless she has a medical condition or something, she isn't actually, she is. But then you don't get to turn around and say, my wife won't give me what I want. I have these desires, she is in sin. Therefore, I get to go find someone else and sin with her. No, you don't get to do that. You don't get to say because the sin that is being done to me is so great. I get to sit in response. You don't get to say that is what policy. You don't get to say they destroy our character without any evidence. We do this to their guys to you don't get to do that. That is empty deceit, human tradition. That's Genghis Khan versus. You know, pick another, you know, Attila the hun. That's how the pagans do these things. That's not what we do. And yeah, that made me we might suffer guys. Didn't cry suffer for us. It may mean we may not get the outcome we want in this world. It may mean that I hope it doesn't. I hope it doesn't, but am I. I am. I. Are you willing to lose your idol. I have to win. For your face. Cosc-. Here's the great irony of the Christian faith. The only chance you actually have to win is if you are willing to. Because you don't have the power. We're dealing with real powers of darkness in this culture right now, and I'm I'm reform theology guy who's SCI fi superhero nerd. I, you know, I sound like my one of my buddies, Robert Kramer at Berina simply of God man right about now. But, hey, I'm gonna nor the signs of the times when I see him either. This is real malevolence where we are beyond political partisanship. Now we're beyond even typical Trant tribalism. These are malevolent spirits at work in our culture right now. And you ain't gonna a hold them back with Lindsey, Graham, I promise. You ain't gonna hold them back whatever with Grassley today at the cavenaugh hearing waving Kane, dick dick Durbin my friend. I can't believe he's out unfair to me. Hell laughs laughs belly last laughs until it Ps. It's serpentine pants laughs at you. That's human tradition versus human tradition. Good luck zero times hero is zero. Jesus says, whoever loses his life for my sake, we'll find it. This is the contrarian worldview. I know by site it doesn't make any sense. And that's why those disciple scattered when they saw their Lord arrested. In the few that remained ran when they saw him executed. At all of them hid after they saw him buried behind it too. And by their human tradition by the elemental spirits of this world. And by the ways they had knowingly accepted being deceived by what the real power was on the planet. It looked pretty lost. It looked like no one would blame them for cutting a deal, taking the lesser of two evils, figuring out what was the best way out of this mess because no one's getting out of this really unscathed. And then a weird thing happened. Stone was rolled away. In the one they had abandoned the one they ran away from, they won the won. They hid in fear after they saw him die. Walked right through their front door. Like a boss. And said, you guys have no idea, no idea who the real power is around here. None. I wonder sometimes do we really understand who the real power is around here? Because if we did my Twitter timeline today wouldn't be full of a bunch of gullible conservatives. Suddenly thinking, Lindsey, Graham is coming to their rescue after he has sold them into captivity. How many times throughout his political career. And then we re, we read the Old Testament. We scoff at the Jews who say to Moses. It was great before you showed up. Where their descendants. Witnessing all these great miracles out in the desert and then turning around at the slightest into pushback from the enemy at the slightest into pushback from the devil. We're like, you know, at least when we were captive, we had water. We had meat. Here. Paul warns us see to it that no one takes you captive and Jesus promises us that he came to set the captives free. I say this with the most amount of affection, my emotionally stunted. Masculine immaturity is capable of. And I wouldn't say it if I didn't love you. I can tell from my inbox. Most of you are captives. Most of you listening to me, you may know bible versus you might know the constitution. My love God, but you're captives. And that's where the the angst in the terror. In the something must be done and we have to win. Those are those are those are fruits of the spirit are fruits of the elemental spirits of this world. Is there those are fruits of captivity? You don't believe you really free. You don't believe you have the most powerful being in the universe. Leading the way you don't believe that. Because you know what would happen if you did. Doing that. Now that were. Peter for awhile thought he had that. Then she's looked at him one day and said, get behind me, Satan. And then when he really had that. In the leadership told him, don't you come back here again tomorrow preaching about Jesus. He showed up before they did the next morning and when they tortured him, he went back, went back to his disciples and said, it is a great joy to suffer for the name. That is power. We got a lot of politicians elected. We don't have any power. We've given all our power away and that's why it seems no matter who wins elections, no matter how many Republicans are in office. That's why it seems like the other side is in control. Because we gave them control when it seems as if the people you're up against are in control, it's usually because you let them have it. Some of your to say, that's why we gotta fight. So you wanna fight by the elemental spirits of this world. You want to fight the cancer with the cancer. Just get more cancers euro time, zero zero. And I know after saying this several year going to Email me, tell me, I like to hear this on my own voice. Tell me I am a wimp. Tell me, I don't know what I'm talking about. Tell me I'm just gonna let the Democrats win. Tide. You remember last time you thought the Democrats rashly lose them. I mean like they might lose an election like losing like the narrative, the culture you remember the last time you thought that. No. How about you. Yeah. So please, if you're about to send me that Email by all means lecture me on how your point you want some pragmatism. I'll give you some show me how your plan wins. Show me what it's one yet. Show me what it's one. Thank you. I agree. Same answer that I had. Final thoughts, Todd, air. Well, a. That's why now and forever. I believe I will be damn proud of being on the Steve day show. Be just added an example yesterday of what's going on or what Steve is talking about. Somebody found out what I do for a living and instantly innocently enough, had thoughts on his own started talking. This is what I think's going on. He started talking about global banking, syndicates all this stuff. It's crazy. Can't trust anybody anymore. There was so instantly I threw out things. You can't trust anybody, you nailed it. I've met the guy for the first time, be global banking syndicates. Okay. Whatever, but finally got to the poll. What do you think. I said, I think we need a lot more God and there was there are other people are onto pas like. The dog confused like didn't see that common rejecting it out of hand also kind of weird. I'm not used to that. I'm used to the other trails of breadcrumbs. That's how it's gotta be you. Y'all have to figure out in ways that set aside your normal political Shino, LA. How you're going to be talking now about that in a different way on a regular basis because there are no aunt, there never are any answers outside of God, but they're most certainly are times in history culturally speaking in terms of families that are operating appropriate, where there is something closer to a cruise control where, hey, head deter ch- on Sunday, you get filled up with that Holy Spirit. And during those times of awakening. Thing, things get done spiritually on a regular basis. You are edified, you are sanctified. This isn't the time. It is a time of great spiritual war. And so there's just no way around it. If you are a Christian you, you need to take stock. Now you need to do the math if sit down and keep a notebook in your pocket, how many times talking about politics. Versus how many times have I talking about Jesus. And also value what I'm talking about Jesus, how talking about Jesus because that also can be held hostage can be captive. Am I am? I bump er- sticker a. m. i. trite m. i. sanctimony ass-. Or are you as you are supposed to be just a vessel for Jesus and they're not seeing you there see in him. Never using Jesus as a weapon or as our as our our as our savior as our as our guide and. Yeah. I mean, I find that Dacian all the time along the lines of what Todd was saying, well, maybe it's more accurate to say. A lot of times I don't fight the temptation to use Jesus as a weapon to be sanctimonious as Todd said. Reminder that your relationship with Christ is a personal relationship. Relationship is not a science. It's not an art, something completely different. It is a relationship. Just as you wouldn't use in, there's no, there's no earthly relationship that's analogous to it, but just as you wouldn't use. If you're if you're a decent person, you wouldn't use a loved one of relationship with a loved on to pass judgement on someone else, or at least I hope you wouldn't or to just accomplish your own ends or your own means. That that that's so too you shouldn't do that with your relationship. That is that is a temptation for me all the time. Not using my relationship. Just try knowing or thinking that I'm on the side of truth all the time and praying and working at the faith with fear and trembling, and just assuming that everybody else must also be no, we're all broken vessels, which is why we need a savior to sanctify us to make us whole true humility not requires immunity. True humility is a right view of oneself in light of what God has done of who you are and what God has done for you. Through his. Most said, both of you. I'm out tomorrow. Taking Noah on a little father, son trip headway, college football, Gav, fun, and boy, do I need to be out. So Todd and aired will fill in, you'll have more than you'll be more than capable hands. I'll be back again on Monday. People are doubting that right now based on yesterday show. Steve. I really enjoyed that feedback. Actually people liked John three seventeen. This is steam days.

Retirement Plan COVID Certification

"Hi this is Bob. Toth curator and creator of the business of Benefits. Trying something new. We're going to attempt to try a podcast to go alongside the written word. Perhaps to give it a bit more color. And besides it gets me a chance to sit by my glass of troublemaker. While sheltering in pretending. I'm doing some work what I'd like to discuss. Today is one of the more difficult and intractable issues. Were finding a rising out of the Cares Act. And that has to do with the certification by the participant of Co vid status have actually titled This blog the fiduciary angle to the participant Kovic certification because of spousal employment loss. We know that all parties involved planet administration are struggling with the question of whether the employer or the participant have the cures act right to number one and extension of those loan maximum amounts. I think it's the employer shows to the right to suspend loan repayments. I think it's the participants right. Not The employers. Can you imagine the ramifications of an employer choosing a taxable default in ten percents penalty even if by default number three the right to take a non restricted crd distribution that is coke rotavirus related distribution again? I think it's the participants choice and four the right to non R. and D. Treatment. Again this participants choice I see and the tax impact is actually automatic. But beyond those difficult questions. Yes I'm getting my two cents in on each one of these points is the application of Orissa's fiduciary rules to the determination of the status of a participant as being eligible for the cares act relief. And let's call these people the covert participant under the Statute. You are eligible to be a covert participant. Take advantage of all these things. I've spoken if number one. You are diagnosed with the virus number. Two your spouse or dependent is diagnosed with such a virus or number three. And this is the exact we're to the statute itself so bear with me. You are an individual who experiences adverse financial consequences as a result of being quarantined being furloughed or laid off or having work hours reduced due to such virus disease being unable to work due to lack of childcare due to such virus disease closing or reducing hours of a business owned or twenty five percent operated by the individual due to such virus or disease or other factors as determined by the secretary of the Treasury ores designation. So I think we all agree that the determination of whether or not an individual qualifies as a cold participant would usually be a determination that requires the exercise discretion by fiduciary under Orissa section. Twenty one three twenty one. And that's the general fiduciary status section. But as you also know however the cares. Participants for certification rule adds an odd twist into the mix what the certification rule says is that the administrator of an eligible retirement plan may rely on an employee's certification that the employees satisfies the condition of the above rules in determining whether any distribution is a corona virus related distribution abso. Please I can say that word properly so area. Here's where the problem seems to come in. There's a bit of ambiguity in the third condition of eligibility nowhere. Does it specifically mention the impact of the loss of employment or reduction in hours of the spouse of the participant in the calculation of what are the causes of the participants adverse financial circumstances? Which trigger covert status. So this describe it this way. Consider the following circumstances case number one a participant is still employed but has a reduction in hours which reduces her pay so. She can't make the rent. This clearly is an adverse financial consequence and as long as she certifies to this she will get a corona virus related distribution our CRTV along with the three years spreading of tax the right to repay and a waiver of the ten percent tax penalty. Compare this to case number two that same participant is still fully employed is working at home due to a state order but her husband has lost his job. They now cannot afford the rent and she suffered an financial consequence indeed. She'll have no place to work. If they lose their apartment she certifies that she has an adverse financial circumstance from being quarantined. Does the plan pay as a CRTV? There is a bit of contention on this point ended up if you read the material see. There's no widespread agreement so I offer a few things to think about when you're answering this question. Who sure doesn't need to make that. Determination of covert status. It is entitled to rely upon that participant certification and note that the statute does not impose even a reasonable basis or any other such standard in making the certification yet directing payments. Out of a plan is still a fiduciary act even with the certification only fiduciaries authorize the payments of these funds. But the do L. has long held that the fiduciary has the obligation to override a participants decision. If it's imprudent so isn't the real question then whether or not the fiduciary should reject the participants are vacation. So here's where Orissa may be useful absent guidance from the Treasurer Gio out says that the fiduciary missed act with care skill prudence and diligence under the circumstances then prevailing that a prudent man acting like capacity and familiar with such matters would use in the conduct of an enterprise of a like character and with like aims wouldn't it produce. Sherry who relies upon the certification of the participant. Be judged by the standard. So when you apply the under the circumstances then prevailing standard would not a fiduciary hard pressed to challenge the certification especially given the pandemic in the remedial nature of the statute and the other handy fiduciary challenged certification based upon the lack of specific spousal language in the statute will be faced with some hurdles denying benefit and would need to defend that decision through the era claims and appeals process which they would need to make formerly available to the tonight participant then the severe consequences challenging the certification and nine certification should also give Hoodoo Sherry pause denying it means that the participant may now than even be able to access the funds to prevent eviction or even if that person is lucky enough to qualify for a typical hardship still being employed. There's a mandatory tax withholding of twenty percent on the withdrawal so more funds will need to be withdrawn to make the rent payment. The withdrawal will be fully tax next April at a time when there's still may be financial struggles and recovering from this mass. It is subject to the ten percents penalty and the losses are permanent as there is no right to repay those withdrawals from the plan. It would seem that given the high stakes and the exacerbation of participants adverse circumstances which would be caused by any denial of the certification if producer would be hard pressed to reject that certification. A reasonable case could be made that the food do Sherry Nat rejects such certification. But this decision is not. Without some risk the IRS could claim if treasury fails to clarify the position fails to exercise the authority to fill in the missing spousal language under its authority granted under the statute the C. R. D. Under these circumstances. Y- either a plan document or an operational error that error would then need to be fixed under F. kaffirs including VP. And that is the risk of the night. Then benefit of granting that benefit I apologised. Somehow it is difficult to accept that the IRS would dictate a correction under Edgar's which would force the return of the or the treatment of the crd as a standard hardship. Draw under these circumstances so this is just one type of factual circumstances with which we must you. None of this is easy. All of this is heartbreaking. And all very real thank you let me know what you think.

You can like us on Facebook follow us on Twitter at Steve days show. So it is a pop culture, Tuesday podcast. This is when we look at the intersection between pop culture and conservatism. And I'm gonna give you a headline. That's true. It's true, but it's. It's not the full story. So what I'm about to say is true. All right, it is absolutely the truth. But it's not the full story. Headline amid growing concerns about player safety. And concussions. Youth football participation at the high school level. Has declined. Almost as much as any sport. In america. Since two thousand twelve. Now what I just said is true. There are only. Four sports according to a just completed national survey by the NC double a. and and why would the national collegiate Athletic Association wanna know about youth participation of sports in the high school level, but where did they get their college athletes from? They get them from the high schools k.. There are only four sports. On the male side that have declined more rapidly than football has since two thousand twelve. Would it also be true that the the controversy surrounding player safety and concussions is been a fairly recent development in the last few years, right. That doesn't become a national debate, correct? Correct. So what I just said is true. But it's not the full story. Football has lost a grand total of four point, seven percent. Of its participants nationwide. Four point, seven percent. Skiing is lost five point six. Now when there's only fifty six hundred thirty one people that were doing high school skiing in two thousand twelve. Do you think they miss a five point? Six percent decline more than football when it has one point, one million misses a four point, seven decline way think suffers. Who do you think feels it more? Probably. This gears. Yeah. Golf has had a five point, six percent decline. Wrestling has had an almost ten percent decline. Boy's gymnastics has suffered a twenty three percent decline since two thousand twelve. So the headline I gave you is true, but in the context of giving you the rest of the information, does it seem like that headline is the full story to Utah. Of no hidden never is when it comes to football. We've known that for quite some time. Now we're not the only ones. The other side's not the only ones doing this. Headline, and this is true. NFL ratings continue to sag. In response to anthem protests, is that true? Yeah. I think last year they were down seventeen percent across the board. Right. That's the fact. But those of you who think that your refusal to watch the NFL over Colin Kaepernick you're making a difference. You're not. I'm approved z. in a second. That doesn't mean by the way you should watch it. If you are morally offended at what's happened there, then do it for that reason. But if you think you're making them hurt. You're not. I'm working here at. The two thousand seventeen eighteen television season and its top ranked shows. Regardless of network format cetera. Number one show, and it wasn't even close the six point two rating overall NFL Sunday night football. This is us as number two in editor five point four, almost a full ratings point behind. Number one, NFL Sunday night. Football number four. And if Thursday night football when it was on CBS number six, the NFL Sunday night football kickoff show on NBC number seven, NFL Thursday night football when it was on NBC instead of CBS. Number twelve. Football night in America. NBC's Sunday night football pregame show. It's what five of the top twelve shows last season five of the top and I'll just stop there. Five of the top twelve shows on any broadcast channel last year where the NFL. So yes, enough of you are angry that their ratings are going down, but the NFL is in a marketplace. So it's not a standalone entity. You know what I'm saying? It is competing in a marketplace with others for advertising dollars. And if you're an advertiser, are you going to go on criminal minds which has a two point, oh, in his twenty-sixth, or you going to go on the NFL which has five of the top twin twat top twelve shows. Which which sales agencies call, are you more likely to receive and accept and follow up on. Well, Super Bowl, Sunday. We know what happens to number one television show on planet earth every year, no matter what network. To me, here's why I think these two things are related. I think they're related because. There's really only two masculine driven. Meritocracy is left in the culture. And one of them is trying to actively try to surrender, and that's the military military's actively trying to surrender punishing chaplains paying for castrations endless Middle East war. But if you pray in Jesus name, we court martial you, but if you won't die for a law, I mean, that's why that's what we do. Now. The military was die for a library day. That's what we do. That's our mission. Commercials have gone from be all you can be to join a global fighting force. You see those commercials, don't you. So the military is is trying to surrender its place in the culture as a masculine driven, meritocracy. And what do I mean by that where I mean that the Nate traits of God given God divinely revealed, manhood are encouraged, elevated and rewarded and incentivized. That's what I mean by that. Oh, by the way, one of those key divine revelations is the defense and protection of our women. So when you have Tailhook scandals like we had when we were a kid when we were kids the mass sexual harassment scandal in the military. When you have sexual assaults on military bases, you're actually aiding and abetting when men behave that way, they're aiding and abetting the progressive takeover of their enclaves because sooner or later those women are gonna rightfully call out for Justice because they are owed it and they deserve it. And if you don't give them the Justice, they deserve, they will go to offers to them. And the irony is they will right now the worldview offering it to them as the world view that opened up Pandora's sexual revolution box that made women targets more. So for all of this in the first place. That leaves one other. Masculine driven, meritocracy left in America. That's football at the highest level. To me, this is something. We as conservatives are making a mistake. Handing over to the left. I mean, how many shows and columns have I done on the Colin Kaepernick thing since twenty sixteen tons. For while there. I thought we were having a real debate and I was one of the first people to jump into it. But when we're at the point now thirty two teams in each have fifty three players. So multiply fifty three times thirty two in. That's what like sixteen hundred players or something like that. That weren't NFL uniform week one and out of sixteen hundred players to took a knee. And now we're going to act as if this is still some kind of culture war. My opinion, you're playing right into the less hands because while the military is attempting to surrender, it's masculine meritorious status, they're trying to take over football trying to it's a hostile takeover. I find it ironic that those of you who tell me that I don't want that because I don't wanna vote for problematic, morally repugnant Republicans who just live to me in betray me all the time, and therefore I don't want that if I don't want to vote for them, it means I'm not willing to fight somehow you're willing to hand over the one of the last remaining masculine driven meritocracy. 'cause two out of sixteen hundred players kneeled before the national anthem last Sunday. I don't understand that strategy, but. As my favorite commercials has right now, you do you whatever that is. And whenever I watched this commercial Erin, how do I respond to what have you suck? Yeah, yeah. What have you suck. This is this is not, and I will openly admit dismay that I'm a huge football fan, and maybe I just overly romanticizing this, and that's possible. And few minutes, Todd, and Aaron will be able to, you know, pick away if indeed they agree with those of you that probably are thinking this right now. See this. It's what it's because of what it stands for that I am a huge football fan. You have it the other way around. It's not. I love football. Therefore, I, I want to defend what it stands for. You have it the other way round. It's because of what football stands for that. I love it. See my point. That's why I'm losing it over if you can't tackle them at thirty seven degree phosphorus angle. And if you had, if you thought of anything other than lilies and butterflies as you were hitting him, then it's targeting and you're going to be out next week to. That's right. Freaky hate that crap. Because that's not the game. Does that what it stands for because that's not about player safety. That stem ising the game. That's what it is. I did sports talk media and sports media. I've done it for many years. You're not. I found pretty universally among women who like sports, you know what to sports. They seem to like more than any others hockey and football game football. Why is that Aaron? The millennial chimes chimes right at season opened grenade jumps on that puppy. Why do you think they like hockey and footballer because guys, women like men. That's why. And the two sports in terms of the values and the way they play and the way they and and and the way men are encouraged to behave in order to be successful are pretty masculine. And guess what women like men, women like men as watching men do men. Thanks. That's what they like. Shocking development. Women like men. I think it is a huge mistake to hand this thing over. Especially when you have an exercise that is as racially ethnically diverse as football as ideology has ideologically diverse as it is. A lot of the same people who don't like a lot of the same football people who can't stand Donald Trump. You know what? They also can't stand what I just pointed out about feminizing the game. I don't like that either. They're losing it man. Why do these same black NFL players? Think Donald Trump's, a racist, then turn around in the middle of a game co, follow him on Twitter in the middle of the game, freaking lose their poop over this stuff. I think we're turning this into a game of a bunch of wuss. He's. There will come day. Donald Trump will go away. I don't know why we would want to drive away JR. Maybe I'm missing something. White America getting bigger smaller, Todd. What do you think getting bigger smaller as a percentage, you mean smaller. I don't guess I again, we have to win elections no matter what that's somebody you tell me that. Okay. Tell me how you win elections by urine, the demographic that shrinks and you don't gain any ground with any of the demographics that grow Todd, you know that math works. I mean, I didn't get into the university of Michigan because my mask Romay c. t. was bad. That's why they didn't admit me. So there may be there might be a formula here. I'm just not aware of. Can you tell me how you win elections by your demographic is old and dying. The other demographics are young and growing. Can you tell me how that math will work going forward? I cannot. I don't know how that mathworks. In a way, if you've if you've decided if these guys don't love me, don't love. Don't love much ITO Jesus as much as I do. I'm not. I don't wanna watch their sport kinda sound like the same kind of idolatry. You're accusing them of being you guys actually have a lot more in common than you might think. Including. A lot of those same guys don't want don't like watching this game feminized. To me, that's that's almost that is a transcendent value. Especially because Donald Trump would turn on all y'all, you thought it would get him laid. Let's just be honest about it. That's the guy's been his whole life. Tell me where my ex joy Gazza from trade in the wife file bankruptcy and that relationship seldom out Ted Cruz is a wife cheater in his wife's ugly, and now he's my buddy. What? Whatever deal I gotta make whoever I got a sell out, whatever I gotta do to get what I want right now. That's the my team. I promise you're much more loyal to him than he's ever going to to you. I think it's a horrible mistake. To sit and take one of the take. This really is now because the military to me is a loss cost from meritocracy. The people running that show want to surrender. Now, I mean, the president comes in and says, hey, I think maybe we should stop having our soldiers castrate themselves and wear mascara. Pentagon's, like Belay dot order. We can't do that. Oh, by the way, tomorrow is our Islamic diversity class. So I mean, the military's gone. They want to be gone. They chose to be actively. That's who the leadership is and barring revival in the culture. I don't see that coming back. They just openly disobeyed their commander in chief, they just openly do it. It's kind of funny we were, who is, who was it that did this. It was the guy who wrote the article that we're all member doesn't that just seem like it was nine months ago now that New York Times op Ed? I work in the Trump White House. I know I gosh, it seemed like that was like, did he write that three years ago whose last like. Seriously last week. So much happened since then. I forgot. I remember how long ago was that? It was. It was last week staff. All that guy, the New York Times Dennis, what the Pentagon trip a few times already. Yeah, we're not. We're not obeying orders were just gonna do it. We want, but thanks. So the military's gone. It is violent, it is it. It's voluntarily assented to this. That leaves us with the ball. Boy scouts gone right Puska. It's gone. Military gone. Tell me which one's your left? Most of our pulpits gone. So tell me what masculine German meritocracy is. Do we have left Todd gimme list. I well, you're you're right, and it's really, we're really gonna find out what people think of less about the NFL in my estimation. But once we really start talking about high school football because for me, it's this is way more what young and learn fundamentally about being men in general. Football is such a crucial element. Pro football is is just entertainment and it's fantastic, but young men, differentiating myself, figuring out heck soccer, you know, the kids that's the one team weren't all kids can kind of start playing a very early age. It doesn't take great, not like volleyballer baseball. You need greater hand eye coordination really antsy they and for several years, you throw out boys and girls together football. We are still under no illusions about that yet. This is the thing that men do. If women tried to do it with men. They would get steamrolled and it's a place where men learn if fundamentally about standing in delivering when in the closest thing that you can replicate. The violence of war, a violence of win. It all goes to hell disaster. When you know when cops have to step up when firemen have to step up, things like that. If you, there's, there's no other sport. I'm I'm, I'm a baseball guy threw in two. I love soccer, but there is no. I played middle school football as a kid, and I vividly remember that, say, sensation the first time you put on the pads in a game against an opponent that weren't your buddies. And when it was live action and just it was coming at you a million miles an hour and having to deal with that. There's nothing that can replicate that pro pro football. Could go away and it would. It would be okay to some extent. But if if we lost the ability of young young men to play that game, it would be detrimental for all the reasons you're talking about. Like, like I said, I just played it enough in in seventh and eighth grade news is you're not because Wallis lost four percent. It's overall purchase a patient dwarfs any other high school sport boys or girls, and there's not a close. Second closest is boys basketball, and it's about fifty percent. The participation rate nationwide football is. So it's so that level. So the so what we have here is and this again goes to a common theme on our show. We the left attacks, we react, the left attacks, we react. The left attacks football, we react, how do we react to them since bitches to stand up? And and so we're just gonna hand it to him. Now. Except their attacks aren't working. That doesn't mean there's not legitimate concerns. I mean, you know, my my son, Noah is eleven. He wanted to play tackle football, and he wanted to graduate from flag football detat to tackle football this year for the sake of his mom. I agreed to tell Noah. He had to wait till he got into the sixth grade. And then we would have that until he exhausted his time in flag football. You know when you and I were kids, they didn't care. We were throwing curveballs at nine years old. We know nobody. You're laughing now now the three out a little league. If you throw a curveball before your thirteen we didn't. We pitched every day we through ball. Nobody. We didn't know. We didn't know about any of the modern physiology we had. We didn't know about any of that stuff. I didn't even. I mean, I played sports my entire life. I didn't know what a protein supplement was when I was in high school that you know, no, creatine was just starting to come in a few years after I graduated from high school in one thousand nine hundred. So we know more now, so I would not have my seven eight nine year old son throwing curve balls. But back in those days, we didn't know just like back in those days, everybody smoked and my mom put me in her lap in the front seat of the car while she drove it down the street things. We didn't know that is my point. Those things out to say that that there's never a reason in a time when you get more and better information not to evolve, right. We should do everything we can to make the game safe or as safe as we can. I should put it that way. Do everything came to make the game as safe as you can, but you have to understand what people's true motivations are. There's no amount of safe. You can make football that that progressives will be okay with it. Exactly. No amount of safe because they're not okay with football. And I've told this story before, and it goes back to at USA today when they wrote and editor Ariel the day before the Friday before the Super Bowl about how football's not safe for people to play. And my editor at USA today called and asked me to write the rebuttal to their editorial page, and I sent them rebuttal. I thought there was no chance they would ever run, but they did forbade him and my rebuttal was this is the same to'real board. That is okay with our daughter's getting gang raped disemboweled on the frontlines of a war. And now all the sudden they're saying Twenty-seven-year-old men in the prime of their lives in prime physical conditioning wearing the most modern full equipment that industry has created. Aren't safe playing football. You don't care about safety. This is about the fact it's one of the, it's the last remaining masculine driven meritocracy. You wanna tear it down like you don't care about you don't care. That's why you want women on the front lines. You find with putting our daughters princesses up there to get raped and disemboweled by Islamists because you don't like masculine driven meritocracy, like the military. That's the same. That's the same problem football, something. Don't they get safe. Like it's it's a masculine Shiva meritocracy. That's why he went to you. I, I can't take you seriously when you hold these two positions simultaneously women women on the front lines to be raped by gang raped by his Llamas is a Galateri feminism twenty eight year old men who are two hundred seventy pounds with three percent body, fat, and bench, press total, mathematical value of my social security number can't play football. 'cause that's dangerous. We lots of things men do for other people for feeding their families for providing are dangerous firefighters safe job for you. What's the first word of fire fire the job with first word fire hours. Hours. Body fire at the fire, which probably means there's an I dunno implication of danger. When you feel safety, usually yell out fire when you hate when you're four daughters were really little, you take a messiah and say, hey, sweeties when the rooms all cleared, do me a favor, yell, fire. Did you teach in that. The sound because it's not. They're not there because they're liars. That's why it's dumb. They're liars. They're lying and liars. They're bad, liars lie while lying to you, they're liars. This whole thing's ally police, say, job, do you Cup. So the safe job, they just already donuts all day, right to save chop. Have done lots of things for sport entertainment for providing protection that are dangerous. Is anybody forced to have a career in the NFL know, are they able to retire whenever they want. The ones that are absolutely honest tell you, I do it because I enjoy the danger that we're, this is all really silly talking about making safe something that we do because it's it's not that that and they say this, this is absolutely choice. It's a choice that I made and I wouldn't have traded for anything. No one seeking out that level of candor, though. I agree. Cosc-. Here's what I think is going on. What I think is going on is they couldn't get you couldn't get you to give up on the last masculine meritocracy in the country over player, safety. In by the way the per capita concussion rates are higher in girls soccer than they are in football at the youth level. Did you know that fact. You're more likely to get a concussion playing girls soccer than you are playing football. But nobody talks about that. Apparently, we don't care if your daughter's get banged on the head. We don't. We don't. We don't care from the same people that are like we're all about women's rights except the ones we liked to kill and maim and dismember before they come out of the womb care about women until it goes, we believe crazy crazy in all kinds of things. People in in sports. Bob Costas is now not doing football apparently, because at least there's a level of integrity. He just can't reconcile apparently. That he could reconcile it until he was well past as prime at seventy five years old. You're absolutely have made a few million dollars and send his kids to private schools. All of a sudden he reconcile. I'm, I'm sure it's a coincidence. About violence do? Do you think they really have some concerns that they're going to say out loud about, let's say, women's m. a. m beating the crap out of you know that you know where you know what many of them said back at Rhonda rouses height. Listen, I it's not not that I don't have. I mean, these, these women are going, they're amazing athletes, but listen. Cock? Female cockfighting is alternately not something I'm down with and even less way less is the guys in sports who would regularly talking about how Ronda Rousey could go out and kick most man's ass. Well, maybe yours, but when we're just talking about regular men, non skinny, Jean right name, don't have to be great at football or anything like that, but men who any up. Frowned Rossi's Ronda Rousey couldn't kick most man's ass. Because she's a girl and. There's reasons for they've talked about this in the military. About how you can talk about putting that heavy pack on that gal. All you want to. She's bio. We talked about, we did a show on that. She's biologically different. Her frame is different. She will have an their stats to prove it chronic injuries that are different and Ronda. Rousey cannot just go and just, let's just pick your average eighteen year old high school foot player, football player who has no chance of going on to play college football anywhere else. Ronda Rousey cannot kiss the opposite would happen. I'm, this is not. This is not my. I have to bring up this absurd Prentice only because you fools in the media said things like that. Lifting her up while sitting there and whining about violence in football, isn't it odd that on one hand, you want us to you. Wanna tell us that women's sports accomplishments should be great on. Their own. And I agree, I think I think it could be argued. Serena Williams is the most dominant individual athlete of my lifetime. I'm the father of four daughters and they play at an elite level in multiple most Mondays when I come in here and I asked Todd, did you watch the game last weekend? His answer is no, because where are you at a girl south? He's had a girl, soccer k. yes. In fact, you had to ask me yesterday morning because you only saw the box score. The load asked me for the scouting report on your alma mater, the university of Wisconsin and the game. They lost to BYU because you didn't see the game in real time, just followed it on my phone. Yeah. So I agree. I think the case could be made Serena Williams is the most dominant individual athlete for era. But it's funny to me the same people that that the same progressives that wanna make the case that the women, the women's athletes are on par with the men, then feel the need to turn on to make the argument that you just if women, if women athletes are great on their own, then why do we care whether or not the what? How many men they could beat. Why? Why does that argument need to be made? What why? I never understood. This was about equality. Yes. I mean, where's my quality? You're. Quality is by comparing yourself to men. I thought that's what the hetero normative patriarchy wanted you to have not. I'm okay with you. Guys have in your own station that you don't want that. How about like, I never understood the whole. Billie Jean King and what was I old dudes name from before I was born DIVY, rigs rakes what we here's like seventy that. Oh, but he was, yeah, was freaking ancient and he's playing the number one women's tennis player in the prime of his career, and he's AARP eligible. Can you explain to me why that was striking a blow for feminism that you beat at old chain smoker guy. Like if I was Billie Jean King, I'd been like this is beneath the dignity. I'm not playing him. This is striking a blow for feminism that I'm admitting. I'm admitting, I'm an equal competitor to a senior citizen. To a guy that in another time would be doing frigging Viagra, commercials, really. Is that a victory for feminism? Do you know the answer that I'm certain it isn't. Billie Jean King player, Arthur ash. Now, let me see that. I've seen what feminism has become since. So I think we, we are wrong to just hand this to them. See, they tried to do this. They tried to get rid of this, tried to get rid of this meritocracy with player safety. It's not working numbers show. It's not working. Four percent decline is nothing out of a sport that has vast more participation than any other use sport in the country, and it's not even close. So now here's what they're gonna do. See, this is the you guys should recognize the game plan because it's the same thing you see with Trump everyday in politics. A present the news in a way that turns out democrat voters that didn't vote in two thousand sixteen and gets them to turn out this time and be present the news at while you're doing that also present the news in a way that turns down Republican voters who turned out in two thousand sixteen and depresses them. So you know what? They can't convince you the sports not safe, that didn't that didn't do enough to give all good old fashioned, traditional America. I didn't give that doesn't get you to give up the sport. Here's what we'll do. We'll turn you off to it. Boy, these guys just hate America Colin cabinet Cates the cops. And we will make them 'cause celebs. The amount of players sit out there and pray before every single NFL game together compared to the amount of players that have ever kneeled before national anthem. Last years in even close man, it's a hundred to one. It's not even close, but we're not gonna hear anything about them. Like we're not gonna hear about four percent. We're not gonna hear about four percent, economic growth, not gonna hear about that. We're gonna hear about the fact stormy Daniels things the president's penis when he was having sex with her reminded her of character from Mario Kart. Go to hear about that because I can't get you to vote the way I want. I'm gonna get you out to vote at all, and that's what they're doing right now to the NFL. They're trying to convince you football has been totally taken over by Colin Kaepernick. And yet if that were true, why is he not on a roster? Why is he not been on a roster. Oh, I know these coaches and owners can say whatever they want when he SPN sheds a camera in front of their face and they'll just tell them whatever the, they'll just say, whatever the nice little metrosexual reporter from ESPN wants to hear before they go back to Bristol. But when it comes down to nut cut in time and man, if you were in prison last week, I will put you on my team this week because the NFL stands for not for long when we don't win around here. Right. With the average career spans four and a half years. The average coach last two and a half years. So they can say whatever they want in columns or platitudes of soundbites. But when it comes time every single training camp to go into the September with the fifty three guys, you're staking your livelihood in franchise on notice. Colin Kaepernick name has never there. Never there. Michael. SAM's. Nicholson's name is never there. Weird. Really weird, Michael, Sam Dame never there. Weird weird. So here's my humble suggestion. You're falling for a scam. You're you're, you're playing into this first of all, you're not having the impact just like they're not having the impact in diminishing youth football. They're not having the impact. I think four percent is nothing when you're number one. And then there's no close number two. You're not having the impact protesting NFL that you think you are ca seventeen percent of a loss of yours is nothing when you're five of the top, twelve freaking shows guys. Okay. You got so many viewers. You can. You can put some on layaway. You can lonesome out. So not neither side of politicizing. This is making the impact. They want very similar to the Trump thing in politics. But see, they're, they're also accomplishing something there after which is they wanna make the place so disgusting that you give up on it and just let them take over. And then gone will be the last masculine driven meritocracy. So my humble proposal here today on the podcast is we as conservatives would be foolish to let them get away with. Instead hold them accountable for ruining things like what is tackle in one catch that should be your outright. Absolutely. But instead tomorrow, Steve after we do after you Kurt Nye, do the on the clock week three NFL recap. I'm gonna pull a promo. From the NFL recap and I'm gonna posted on Facebook in every every. I hate the no fun league or the national felons league. I don't watch. I watch it for two years calling crapper crip you know, it's just gonna be that one after the other. Final thoughts time. Well, we need a lot more. Winsome advocates of the sport. One, one of the things that we just. Football does shoot itself in the foot a lot. We need more Daboh Sweeney's talking about what this sport is in what it means to young men. Than sour pusses. I like. Like urban Meyer or or Nick in in Alabama, Nick Sabin, where he gets, you know, get asked a question about an obvious quarterback controversy and he just gets the vape. I mean, they're not. They're not really good. They are within that broken people die for him, but you gotta sell football in a way that gets beyond your little temper tantrums. You also need to. I think you made the right decision. I think when we are talking about men's things we need to be talking about. Pew Bessant boys when they're saying, okay, now is. Football. I don't think it's done any favors by starting tackle football with how earlier some kids playing tackle football. If third and fourth graders are playing tackle football, I've got to say not because I don't like football. I think that's pretty dumb. They're not ready to learn what men's flag football is just fine for them. So I think the decision you made for your son is right on because when he's in sixth grade, seventh grade, that's the time puberty kicking in and that's the time you know, hey, man, not a boy anymore. You're a man. That's what football is four. So that's my way of saying, there's all kinds of things. Regardless of what progressives are doing dead football and men of goodwill can do to put their best foot forward. Unfortunately, that often does not happen. Any final thoughts? There is one other masculine driven meritocracy, but we can't talk about. Am I supposed to know what it is? You don't talk about this this. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah, I hear ya. I hear Mr. dirt. I here you go. Well, done. Well, thank you for the second rule is we, we don't. We don't talk about it. Hopefully you're talking about a severe if you have a few minutes to do so today, please go to Stitcher. Leave us a positive review and hit that subscribe button if you have time today. Thank you so many of you have already done both of those things. Thank you to those of you that have we are back at it again tomorrow until then John three seventeen. Eighty eight. Eighty. That.

Surprising Longevity Secrets from a Fitness Titan Kathy Smith with Dave Asprey : 723

"Station Pie. You're listening to bulletproof radio with Dave asprey. Today. We're GONNA. Talk about fitness with someone who I would call a fitness titan impact. That's what Forbes her none other than Kathy Smith. She's been doing this health and wellness thing for almost forty years of focusing on. How does she keep herself? Amazingly fit and healthy. And how does she help people do that? We're talking about. She pioneered her first fitness video in nineteen, eighty, one and You'd be like a lot of people listening to the show. You never actually pushed a VCR tape into a VCR thing, and had this other little stripes at the bottom, because the heads were misaligned, and all that stuff I did when I was in high school. Well, yeah, that was the first fitness videos and CDs DVD's leader none of that crap, but she's been doing it for so much time more than twenty million of. Of them sold super authentic and someone who's built a life and the lifelong business with connecting mind and body, and you're gonNA find this to be really inspirational. You'RE GONNA. Learn something about how you can actually be incredibly vibrant. No matter what you're doing, no matter where you are no matter how long you've been doing something that you love This is the second time she's been on the show I've been on her show. And Kathy? It's an honor to have you back on bulletproof radio. Oh, it's always so much fun. You're my hero in so many ways because I feel this alignment with you because you're I'm turning sixty nine this year, and when I when I, when I was your age and younger I, you've heard the story before, but I lost my parents when I was late teens, and that sent me on my journey of fitness wellness, healing the mind pulling myself out of depression, and so many of the things that I hear you talk about. went through a lot of those stages at different You Know Com same time. You're maybe a little earlier including. Since I was a product of the seventies you know all of the mushrooms and the psychedelics, and all that that was kind of that was happening at that point, not medicinal marijuana, but actually the smoking, the marijuana, and all that time period of self-discovery Meditation, but most importantly for me, it was as you mentioned the fitness and I started running at you know just to run away from my pain and my anxiety, and my fear, and my depression and I found. This little gem of of. Course something called endorphins and everything else. That happens when you work out. That just helped me out of that period so. Really loving the journey. I'm still stuck on the fact. You said you were sixty nine sooner. Cathy, no human who sees you? Sixty nine yet right whatever. I have found that incredible amounts of Najd happened when I interview people who are around seventy and older. Because Hey, I'm late forties. So that means you've got another couple of decades of experience that I can draw from that. Our listeners can draw from and you clearly have the brain in the energy to be able to just say hey, look, this is what happened. I've seen this one before. and. What I WANNA know is given that you have this history vision, which is way more accurate than mine. What has changed in the fitness industry over those four decades. When you've really paid attention to it, so walk me through kind of the cycles that you've seen. Tell me where we are today. Definitely lemming, wrap my arms around us right now. First of all I want to just say one thing as far as technology, so you started with the introduction with the VCR's and the VHS is. Honestly before that in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, eight was my very first product, and that was an exercise album. What if you could get access to all of the sleep stuff that I know stuff that I haven't put even in the blog yet. And what if it was a challenge for fourteen days where I teach you every single day? How to get deeper sleep have more dreams and how to get better sleep in less time. Sleep is important right now, so join me in asleep challenge I put together for you. There's huge amounts of information for you. You get private facebook group access I'll be going live in the group for to Qa sessions only about sleep during the challenge just interact with everyone who's a? A part of the challenge and Best of all, even if you don't have anything to track your sleep I'm including free access to an APP that you normally have to pay for that. Let's you track your sleep during the challenge, so go to Daveramsey dot com slash sleep, challenge in sign up right now. I Really WanNa teach you everything that I've learned about how to go from being a horrible sleeper to someone who gets more sleep and less time than people half my age. That's Dave asprey dot com slash sleep challenge for the very best sleep packs, and a community of people working on their sleep. And nineteen seventy eight was my very first product, and that was an exercise album. So the way we exercise in nineteen seventy eight. was that you put a L. P. on you? Put It on a turntable. There'd be a poster on the wall with pictures of me and you follow along and from there. We did go to CRTV DVD's the interactive's now I have apps and we're doing. Zoom calls zoom workout, so technology change and I've always been a technology junkie I've loved it, and so that was one of the things of. How do you deliver information? Information so you have outside of the question, and then to your kind of what I think you're directing your question, too. Is the fitness side and we've seen it? Go through the cardio phase. The big running boom, the seventy s which launched into you know the big aerobics craze in the eighties with high impact. You know headbands. Let's get physical. You know you're in the clubs. The clubs became the place the social. That was the social center. That's where you went to meet. People meet men meet women me girls me, boys! You have fun, get those. Get sweaty together, and that then went into you know, and then at the same time you have golds gym coming up and you have the the whole strength training, and Arnold and all of that and I want to backtrack just even before that because a good friend of mine of Jack Elaine Jack Lane. Starting in the fifties with his little outfit, and telling people about mind, body and nutrition, so I think that strengthen became popular, and then you have all these little Oh! You know, different. Matai offshoots is what I'm trying to think of. You have these offshoots of Cardio Strength Training Mind Body, and when I started my first aerobics video or my first video I you know I, put my hands up like this and I said think about your fitness is cardio, its strength and it stretching mind body balance that type of thing. Thing so to have that balance between the three, so those three things interestingly enough have not changed that much through the years which change how we approach that so strength training can be anything from. Let's lift heavyweights to let's do trx to let's do our body weight. Let's do tubing and that's where the product side where we this businesses multibillion dollar business. was born because all these different products to help you work out at home at the gym in any kind of situation. The same thing happened with cardio, so we had everything from boxing stepping step aerobics remember that, but that was John Miller out of Atlanta, we had spinning that came with Johnny g out of Los Angeles and all these different ways of. How do you get that workout and more importantly? How do you get motivated to do it, so I think the big thing that end the thing that I talk about when I get up in front of people is And this, this is interesting, because I I'd like to hear your feedback on this, but I would get up when I would start my talks in the nineties. Let's say nineteen ninety I'd get up go back in the nineties. I was saying this already. I'd say okay, and I shout out to the group. There's a thousand people I. Say okay, so, what's your excuse? And I say. What's your excuse for not taking better care of yourself? What's your excuse for not exercising? What's your excuse for not eating right? And, if you give me an excuse that I've never heard before, I'm going to give you a free book like my new book, and so what I would do is I go around to start listening to people's excuses of. Why was it that we know we're supposed to exercise? You know you're supposed to do some strength training. You know everything you preach on your podcast. People know that there. There's a rhythm to your day in Circadian Cycles, and all this stuff that we're learning wrong way. So what is holding you back and that became Dave. That became fascination because I love human beings. I love the way to understand how they think so I'm not just. Up here preaching okay, I want to do twenty push ups squats to jump Jacks. It's like that's that that could be an exercise for the, but let's say you don't want to do it because you have incontinence and you have leakage if you do jumping jacks, let's say that you have a shoulder issue and you can't do a push up. Let's say that you don't like to sweat, or let's just say. I mean I've heard him all. All let's see you've gone to the hairdresser or you know you. You blew out your hair that day, and you don't WanNa get messed up, so you start to get into people's minds of okay. What's preventing you from taking these steps into this new this this this lifestyle, and then I like solving and I really have loved solving along the way into your point. Directing people to have movement pattern that they will love you love today, people. I hate to work out and say okay. Imagine you're in your. Second Grade Claus at Slyke. Ballot goes off recess. You're running outside of the playground. Are you happy. Are you excited about that or do you want to sit in your chair? Longer excited guts. He want to do when you get out there and. Let's go back to that plateful spirit of what turns you on so much that it's fun to do, and that's what I could be. Dancing could be stepping spinning biking hiking whatever I try to help. People find that and that's how the business developed because we had all of these young. People filled. I love it, there's. There's so said for finding something you like. What about time, and it seems like so many people. That I talked with a book I. Have A job I have a commute I have a family I'm trying to go to school or learn some more things I'd like to relax. I. Just don't have time to do an hour of cardio or something every day. Would you say to that excuse? It's funny. I used to be more Used to be a little. More. Positive when I will give the answer to that excuse because I. Get it I I get it. I was an audience once where woman said you know. My mother has Alzheimer's I have to drive to the to the facility. I have four kids I have. A job whatever and you realize that there? There is a lot of time in the day, but at one point we all have to look at our lives and just see how we're living them. If you honestly don't have enough time. To give your you know to take care of yourself and put yourself on your to do list at all. I mean you have this long to do list, and if you can't put yourself on the to do list, then, maybe it's time to evaluate the life a little bit but I, you know that's one way I would answer at the other way as we have so many shortcuts now and it's. It's one of the things I know that you know. I wanted to bring up today at one point, but because I know you into interviewed Dr. Jump Straight Persson on blood flow restriction training. Now I'm involved with. Be Strong and I you. I've been using blood flow restriction training for over two years now and dad is a that is what I knew. You would love it because that is. That shortens your time you got. You can give me ten minutes. I can give you I can get you into a a state where you're you know you're. You're changing your whole body chemistry because it's not just as you know, and you talk about it a lot, but it's not just about firming up or getting the the. Core, a little stronger or the bud, a little higher or the arms little. More buffed. It's all the systemic things that happen when you work out on the cellular level, and those are the things that you know that you don't want to avoid by saying. Don't have enough time, so you do the you know the little hacks that you talk about, but the one of the biggest ones and you're. You've talked about it. I know you've gotten the word out there. It's just gonNA. It's growing across the country, but blood flow restriction training is one quick way that you can shorten your time and then I would say the other against I know you've talked about this so I don't want to be A. Redundant at all, but you know hit training. Just go hard. Go fast, go home. That sort of thing it's like. Don't get into this. You don't need an hour. especially as we age, and this is the one thing I do WanNa. Talk about because. What what's kept me in the game for all these years? Is that I have known when you go hard? And when do you back off and go gentle and do your yoga and your recovery and let Your Body Heal? What the biggest mistake I do! See people, especially the real fit people I mean this there's there's a tip that you can say like after two decades, or whatever an extra two decades I have I've known so many specifically man that jam there'd be pumping that you know chest pressing big weights, whatever not listening to their bodies and. Forty, five fifty mid-fifties at shoulder, replacements and things like the. It's things like that they they haven't balanced the idea of. You can't put that much stress on your joints for ever I mean you can do for short time. You can have fun with it, says not saying don't have fun. It's like find the balance. I really liked that perspective I've seen far too many former bodybuilders in their mid fifties in constant pain, and others who are okay, I'm a traff leads or swimmers or big wave, surfers, and things like that and they kind of beat themselves up. The recovery isn't a masculine thing to do right. You know the Yoga relax recover. Get a massage so. I'm GONNA go push. And eventually it seems like it catches up with you, and that's one of the reasons. That I've started upgrade labs. Here's other recovery tackles recovery takes a long time recovery's boring. Sorry the rest I didn't want to rest I want to get more rest and less time because I actually have stuff I like to do so I'm thinking even that can be hacked. It's funny you. I I have to say I mentioned this earlier by having a daughter who's an Olympic athlete and the Nike the Nike Team was all these medalists. There's twenty of them have came up for altitude training in Park City and the thing that you see is to your point. So, much of their day is on the recovery the the rebuilding. So much of their day is on the recovery. The rebuilding the oh the. Achilles isn't feeling quite right. The energy level Oh the stretching out. Oh, the hamstring says and so two not to be able to bring that down to a period of time were it doesn't take that much time, but you're giving attention is just vital or else again. You just pay the price. You know fifty, and beyond things that I wish someone had told me when I was younger I did the six days a week an hour, and a half a day half cardio with weights on a treadmill and half maxing out all the machines, and all didn't make me lose any weight. but I probably could've used little bit more sleep, and maybe an every other day routine would have been metabolic healthier for me. And when we're talking about accelerated recovery there, and when it comes to putting on muscle or just doing that side of things less time, the blood flow restriction with be strong. I believe in that so much that the intermittent hypotheses is an extension of that sort of thing and for six years now that's been a part of what we're doing. It upgrade labs whole body intermittent hypotheses via two different mechanisms to up regulate this thing called. Hypotheses inducing factor one which blood flow fiction does so everyone who subscribes to my box ended a box of creative stuff. Every quarter subscribers last quarter actually got the be strong bands in the bottom and I. hold one up. Yeah No! Because you know that I know. I knew I knew you did that, so that was exciting, but you know it's just one of these it's in the no, and this goes on my arm and then you have a little. You have this to pump it up. And that little, and it goes right at the top of your arm here and then you pump it up and these barrels fill up in restrict. Modifies restricts the blood flow slightly and to your point which I'll let you continue. I didn't mean to interrupt you, but it It impacts the oxygen. In fact Jim understood was on episode seven Oh, five on bulletproof radio, talking about all the amazing science behind this and I think this is awesome, because you're you've been progressive and always evolving for forty years, and so for you to build, say okay I used to do it this way in the seventies or eighties or nineties and Oh. Look now. We have this thing that lets me restrict the blood flow in. Do the exercises that you want to do, but less time on it and you're completely happy to do that. Instead of falling into that trap where this is how it has to be, and it's always going to be this way, and I find so many people over time they lose the flexibility where they're not willing to reconsider something that they've already quote solved. Even wait. It's not working as well as it did. what allows you to maintain that flexibility or has allowed you to do it for your entire life? Well, you know I've always had this insatiable curiosity I love. I love. Learning I love learning I. Love trying that's why everything you do I'm you know right there? It's like I hear it I. See it I. do it I. Tried I see if it works for me, I see what aspect will work for me. I. See what I'm doing that similar to that but I think it's it's. It's a Buddhist philosophy of Always looking at things with young is fresh is like you've never seen it before and I. Don't know I started studying Buddhism again and And actually became went and Hinduism with with. Parma Honda Yoga Nada at self realization fellowship literally that forty five years ago and that philosophy where you get up and you're very present. You're very right now. You're very much like teach me something as opposed to. Oh I know that I. See people all the time I'll say something. Oh I I'm going to tell them something, or they asked me a question about time, restricted eating, or whatever, and literally the words come out of my mouth, and it's like They have the answer and they know why doesn't work or whatever it might be? They've already decided they've made the decision of. That it's and I think that this idea of. How do you stay open to being coached through the years, but tennis skiing? Whatever I've had coaches. You know you're very coach. -able because it's like. You know. Show me. I'm going to repeat it I'm going to mimic you whether it's dance, tennis or a movement pattern at something. I've been good through the years. Because of I'm boxing. If I'm working with the boxer, like Michael, allonge, who fought for the middle heavyweight champion of the world and I'm working with them I'm there I'm here? It's like elbows in Duku, and you're like you're doing this and use the hip and pretty soon. That relates to touchy. Touchy which relates to you know yoga which relates to Kunda leany which relates to pelvic floors, and they all when you start to see how everything connects, and how all these different disciplines that whatever you're using in that. Yoga class for some people. Oh, Yoga's just stretching. Oh, my Gosh! Forty years of Yoga Yoga is for changing your life and changing the way you think and becoming aware every single body part I of this technique I use this. Technique, we start with your left foot and magic coming up your body and imagined for on a scale from one to five. This is a one no tension. This is like Oh, like completely isometric contraction to now you go up in the morning I do this. Where you start with left foot, you got one, two, three, four, five, five, four, three, two, one right foot, left calf, right calf left thigh, right thigh, gluten, gluten, lower abdat arm, neck neck. Okay, all of it. Release it one muscle group at a time, and just it took me years. Imagine going release here. Release here. I mean releasing this side this side of your neck so anyway that energy station exercise, which is something from a meditation technique that I learned through self realization has I'm called the Korea. ABBAN which is a certain type of Yo- Yoga and And? That's techniques. Now you take that technique and that's just body awareness. It's learning where your body is any in space and time. Where's your body licking listeners right now? Where's your body right now? Because have you fallen into that old person posture old, which is the aging posture or are you doing some? You know you know. Pause posterior activation on your. You know for your post, your chain activation. Are you doing something that pulls your shoulders back every single morning at least four times a day. Another shoe, you just even the little. Still. Doesn't have to be unnatural, but in general when people are sitting. Don't you know, think about sitting atop your SIP bounds and that neutral spine, and then that that back and you know that very natural way that everything, and then including what you talked about on your podcast you know recently with the whole time trick yoga, and that lower pelvic floor and that what you know what everybody thinks when your core you getting your plank in, you're working your core, which is fine, but there's so much down in the lower part of your an internally with Your core muscles that when you start to get that in Yoga, and some your other disciplines, you bring that back to your strength training so now you're in a cross stick class. You're not going down and letting that lower, you know lower part. Just hang out between Your Amos and your but China or your. Painter whatever that it? That is like that's the first thing. It's like lift. Go so anyway. It's all these things that become you know. Interdependent. Did I get off track, sorry. You know I don't think so. You're just incredibly enthusiastically curious and I think that's what's kept doing this. as to whether you know why you're that that curious. That could just be who you are, and how you are, do you? was there something in your childhood? Something that made you just more curious than than the average person because you've you are more curious and you've maintained your level of curiosity for longer than most people. Yeah, yeah, yeah, it's a good question. I mean I. Say the only thing that comes to mind I'm trying to think of a couple of a couple of things come to mind, but the one I was raised in the military. And my dad was air force pilot and I bring that up because there are been studies, and there's all kinds of talk about people, military kids, either become depressive at alcoholics, or you know kind of outgoing and And curious and successful type of people and the reason being that every two years you're transferred to another location and you have to. If you're going to succeed if you're going to be in, you know, be able to fit. You have to be able to go up and ask people. You know my name's Cathy. What's your name? And where do you you know? Where do people hang out at the school? And you know what there to do when you have to keep asking questions. If you are going to when you're in seventh grade, you're the newest kid and that seventh grade class and you have no friend in the. The world, and then again in ninth grade, and then again in eleventh grade, but starting from the time you were baby and I. Think I think that you you start to get rewarded for asking questions and I think in a way being curious, so that might be a little bit of it, and then the other side i. think there's just a bit of a adhd type of thing that You, know like I. My my mind I think that's why the meditation exercise is so good because I have a million I have. I mean lot of talk about this. I'm sure other people experiences, but I have lots of thoughts get up in the morning and I got four new products I wanNA create an or not even products, but ideas or people, and that gets my juices flowing, and I free flow I. Let things just. That's where my energy comes from I, don't. I meditate and I try to. I know when I need to calm the mind, but there is just a fun factor for me for just letting it run and finding out what comes up because I. do make some new connections during that time period. So it, it's just it's built in there. You're always creating and I find that there's. A personality type that's like that it's relatively rare. A lot of entrepreneurs to a lot of innovators do it, but they don't become entrepreneurs because they're so innovative that they can run a business or ask for help or something. And then there's certain states that are programmable through Yoga through meditation through neuro feedback through electrical stimulation you turn on creativity, innovation and someone who has forgotten how to do it but I also would hypothesize that for you because you've done such a good job on maintaining your fitness. That, your brains capable of doing that, so you have more knowledge and more wisdom, and you have the energy of a young brain in there like Oh look I have all this new. This knowledge play with which makes it easier to innovate because you've seen so much. And you can take that with whatever's new say. I've seen it. Now Of all of the fitness trends. You've seen over your life. What is the single dumbest one? I've been building new kinds of teams across my businesses in twenty twenty and everyone works remotely, and some of us are in different time zones, and it was really important that we had easy to use project management platform that made truly effective teamwork, real and Monday dot com was the answer for us. Everyone connected under a single source of truth. Now we plan, we track. We manage our work all in one place, and we always know who's doing. What by win Monday Dot Com. Let us map out everything visually that means. We're seen as the organized which. which frees up brain space for the really important thinking that has to happen no matter where you are and money, Dot com brings our team together and other ways to centralize communication improves coordination across every department, and our productivity went up a lot and more collaboration is good for everyone. Teams are happier work more closely together and just more innovation, so let Monday dot Com. Take care of what slows you down, so you can free up time to focus on the work that drives you to start your free fourteen day trial. GO TO MONDAY DOT COM All the Fitness Trans you've seen over your life. What is the single dumbest one shaker wait? Do a Shaker weights as it was just, that was the infomercial tiny, but as far as the I'm by the way sometimes gimmicks only because this is my entrepreneurial side, sometimes a gimmicky thing if it gets somebody doing anything like I'm Ford, so if somebody picked up, I don't. Did you have in Canada? The Shaker weight which is basically. American and so yeah Azra so funny lately like you couldn't not look stupid holding. Such yourself. And especially depending where they decided to put it. You're kind of going okay, but Shaker wait was steerable, I mean they sold I mean part of it because it was such a great gag gift. You know I think. It's not. I don't want to just any particular Movement style, but there are certain movement styles are people what happens is people get into a habit of doing the exact same thing, the exact same way, and it was especially when it is like a woman lying on the ground, doing leg lifts lifting your leg up and down thirty times, and then leg circles, and then circle the other way, and it's really it's really small muscles, and now I'm not against working. Working Stabilizing Muscles, and obviously it's all important, but it, but instead of being able to combine that with some functional workout full body. It's just like let's just come here and we're just GONNA, circle or short. We're just to do this and this and this and over and over and that soon, and they're paying money for that, and then they're wondering why they're not getting results, and so it's the idea that. Any anything that that professes to be the only answer I even with my own stuff I do not say this is the only way it's I found. This is the best way the best way for me. I'm trying to find the best way for you, but the only way, and when people really narrow it down to one particular form of exercise, and especially if it's functional, that's even fine, but even if you do weight training with no cardio or Korea with no stretching at one point, it's like okay. Get a balanced approach to this thing, but I'm trying to think of like really Gimmicky I. You know I I've There's just been I because I was on Hsen. I was on QVC I lot of stuff on all of these Home shopping networks and so. It's just mainly the promises it sometimes thing. Isn't that bad like taking Suzanne somers had the the little spring thing that was about this big and you went like this and you know you can make your bus bigger and you put it between your legs, and there was a range of motion about. Three inches squeezed, but the. Loved it, 'cause you got it home, and you put it between your legs, and you squeeze squeeze Boop Boop Boop if you felt it in your inner thigh, it was a small range of motion and it is, it is a Guinness. People Gimmick well. You know if it's one of forty things you're doing, and you're watching TV and you want to throw between your legs. Go forward, but what happens is people. This is going to be your fitness routine. So that's where the Gimme. The promises are the a lot of times just having a small device that might do one thing is fine. I actually have one of those devices I. Think it's the same one. It's like you stick your senior butt cheeks and squeeze it. That's the one. Believe it or not Chinese. Medicine like grandmaster in his seventies, who on along the lines of Montauk Chia, was just on the show was like debut. Should these gimmicky things like I kidding me and it's like pink plastic. It smells like a a cheap sex toy. It's like. Use it outside. I never heard putting it between your cheeks. This is one that it's like curved and it goes all the way up there. I'm GonNa try it like anytime. Like someone who has way more experience than me and has studies for for decades I am not that argument to say that's stupid, I it look stupid. But, I'M GONNA. Try it so. I did it and you know what you do it for like a week and I'm like I could feel differences in I'm just not really republic floor. It's like your lower ass for lack of a better word, but like this is weird, but what it did in the reason that he thought of us for me. It actually straighten my whole posture. Because I spent a lot of time at a desk and I mean you write books for living is was part of very small living, but you I a lot of time on it So you you, you tend to kind of get focused, so it did really change how I walk like my head. Move back like okay. That's kind of cool. WHAT'S THE GIMMICK I? Don't think it's entire fitness routine and you know I. Don't think most people are looking at the little curve on the inside of my but. But okay like. Well. No, that's perfect and I love to hear this. You're working on your shirt because that's the thing I mean it's. That is a big thing that people do not talk enough about and lower back you know Ron Boyd's. How do you get up and do that? Poster chain activation every single day? Like just something as simple as you know bringing your elbows down, and you know pulling them behind you, and just you know getting the the neck and the Chin up and I mean there's much more much more. More advanced things and things you can do on the floor, but literally at your desk every day. Take that break for that and you know to get up and just I know you know this already. Get that seat and get that nitric oxide also just like moving through your system and do something intense I mean I have people when I do speaking engagements, just get him up for two minutes and push, and really like push and the energy, and to your point, the brain function energy the room. After sitting for thirty forty minutes getting up and pushing with a you know Hainanese in and out jumping jacks couple. Push ups so I'm. I'm big in doing that throughout the day and to your point, we started this conversation off with is how do you get You know people that don't have the time. Just break it up. I mean there's the science is over, and over is out there and there's one science research paper after another about. Don't sit all day long. Get those hits throughout the day two minutes. Make him four minutes. Get a ten minute. One and anybody can do it then. It's a it's so cool. It's all very doable if you have the motivation and you have a system to make it a habit. And the habit part has been a big part of the excuse for for me and for a lot of people and my wife Lana said you know I'm going to do this. She read Bj fogs book, and on habit formation a tiny habits, and said I I'm going to try this. And she said every time she's blending. She usually makes like a macho in the morning and every time she's at the blender. blender she does squats so the whole time it's planning. She's doing squats in the kitchen. Which I think is hilarious, but that habit over the course of six months Mike. You could bounce a quarter off of Vermont side, and it wasn't like that before and it. It's funny. It's not that big of a of an investment. Because the time already spent holding the lid on the blender, so there's not all over the ceiling. But the difference of applying it, because it's a habit seems to overcome some of the excuse side of things as well. Do you make you've potty squad? He's right. Yeah Yeah Yeah. That's that's the other one just like every time you go to the bathroom. Just give yourself a ten air squats and you know that adds up in the course of the day also. Also discourages you don't go to the bathroom, so you save time. Now. You do some other stuff that is really cutting edge in the world, the biohacking. Is Awesome you're talking about nasal breathing. I've had the Boutique Oh clinic. Guys on I'm. Patrick mccown has been on on the show and I. Sometimes actually tape my mouth shut because what the heck? Why not? Tell me what you do with nasal breathing. Well I started because I had patrick, my podcast, and my my daughter turned me onto them the the athletes and she. started doing it. To increase performance, and so she was telling me about it i. read about it then. I listened to your podcast with Patrick Than I had patrick on him, and so how am I have! A slight very slight had through the years not now, but exercise induced asthma, and it was not medication, time or anything like that, but I would notice that I could. There are certain times where if I would go out for really hard run, and I wouldn't warm up that I would irritate my long so anyway I had that going for me and at the same time I live at altitude, I know there's a lot of benefits of living at altitude. And then, and then there was just idea of of when you hear the science behind it that in a were meant to breathe through our note and. What happens is that we become mouth breeders that changes that either has young kids. It changes the way that our phase are actually comp-, the the makeup and the proportions and your face, but literally it you know it's sleep apnea it snoring and I happen to be dating somebody also who was a big snore and snoring is a big problem for not only the sleeper, but the secondhand snore which you. You know some living with the sleeper is I mean that can be a dealbreaker. Almost in a relationship is because no sleep and I'm not happy puppy, so I started a playing around with it and I started with the bowl test, which is basically you know you inhale maybe a four or five count you exhale, hold it. How many seconds without an gasping for air can you hold it and I noticed that especially at altitude, and wasn't that great and really I mean twenty seconds twenty second hold is considered pretty average. Try to get up to like forty second hold I found I was like the first time was a thirteen seconds where I had to breathe, so I started playing around with it, and basically playing around means and the morning, going through my routine and doing everything, and just literally not anything you know nothing coming through here all through the nose. Then I started exercising I went to my first. I Bike I cycle with a group of cyclists, and I went to my cycling cycling group. And I. What I did this indoor during the winter and what I did is they started noticing everybody. Even the warm up was like this. There breath I. Don't if you can tell or not, but they're brings them out. and An and I'm thinking was just the warm up right now, so I would breathing through my nose. I noticed there was an uncomfortable feeling. Because what you're really trying to do is train yourself. You know oxygen hunger as well you know as well as carbon dioxide, build up and training yourself to deal with that carbon dioxide load, and when you do, it takes about a month for me. It took about a month, but when you do with exercise for instance, go on your hike or you go, whatever and maybe you pull the pace back just a little bit, so that you can stay nasal breathing for the entire time now I can stay a nasal breathing. I just did Are chairlift open over Deer Valley I'm a citizen, Sherlock Dope, and and so I hiked to the top, and so I started about seven thousand to nine thousand feet, and I goes, and it's only really at the end that I use mouth breathing, but I tried to do the whole thing doing nasal breathing. What's happened is just this kind of thing you're talking about the but this energy this invigoration this idea the stamina that you don't gas out in your workout. As soon you've learned tolerate that carbon dioxide load, and you've learned to use oxygen. More efficiently and get more oxygen in your system because. It's the correlation between you have to, you know. The carbon dioxide determines also how much oxygen is going to get into the blood cell into the cells into the bloodstream and into your cells so? Playing around with that balance has just been remarkable, and it really has helped my sleep. It's helped. You know complexion. It's helped energy. It's and mainly as I said when it comes to cardiovascular workouts, I'm not. Fatiguing. Yeah, you know as quickly so it's been. It's been really one of these things that I love playing around with and I. Recommend it to people most people. I talked to about it. They don't quite get the concept of quite understand. Why might be useful or it sounds like? How could you work out and not breathe through your mouth? And this? Cabin and if you're sprinting if you're you're, you're going to have to use your mouth breathing, but most of us don't have to be doing that, and then all of a sudden. When you know, start noticing those you're sitting on a plane. You're sitting anywhere and you see people with their mouths open. An everything like us? And then you think about the immunity side of this and you know Patrick talked about this on your show, but. Nitric Oxide, the biggest reservoir and our body is in our nasal in our nasal cavities, and so when you breathe through your nose, you start to release that that helps you know it's. It's an immunity booster. It's you know great for heart health. There's a lot of reasons, but especially during when you want to keep your immunity strong, there's so many other filters in your nose that help out the that can help prevent certain things from getting into your system as opposed to just dropping that mouth, open and breathing. You know mouth being mouth breather. So I'm I'm observant it now. I've made the same shift I run away when I interviewed. Patrick and then. took a while to really build the practice. Also catch herself mouth breathing sometimes, but even the changing your teeth, and if you just get it done at night. And blew me away. The most was like look. Congestion happens in. You Know I. Get some pretty mean allergies when the pine pollen is so thick up here in British Columbia. It's like a yellow cloud. You can see it from space. Sometimes, there's so much. And during that time breath, your nose doesn't always work, and he says just do it anyway and magically. Your body doesn't want you to die. So you're saying spatulas open up like really well. It turns out. It does work. You just have to be uncomfortable for a little while, and then it happens. I also find. It's tough if I'm like right now. I'm talking a lot and when you talk a lot, it's hard to close your mouth. Okay I'M GONNA say the rest of the things that I was going to say so. If you spend all day on zoom, and you spend all day talking, which for me, eight hours of talking in a day is pretty normal I'll do a couple episodes when interviews me and team meetings and Blah Blah Blah and that doesn't can. It doesn't help with that do. Do you find the same thing when you speak battling. That's that's why you have to. You know, find time for it at other at other times during the day and you're right during the sleep, you start with a now by bought the tape. You buy little tape and but it's not scary. It's tape that you will. It will fall off if you are. Need to really pull your lips apart. It's idea that you start to start to settle into this really Really also peaceful state so. You know there's there's a there's a technique and I know you know the breath of fire technique, but you. That brought the fireworks up. It, you know explosive inhaling exiling through the nose. Like before I WANNA. Relax. It's just like. And then after about a minute to to you know seventy five seconds at that. You know you just lie back, and then you just. You don't even feel like you need to take browse for a while because you have this oxygen, you're just full of this oxygen. And now you just sit there and you go into this very peaceful calming state so the breath breakfast I mean if there's anything if there's any big takeaway from. Like if he wanted to say, what would you sum up? Everything about pro aging and. Everything we've talked about. It's like learning how learning about your breath. Because your breath, you know controls your emotions, it controls. Your health controls so much of like how much how while you're GonNa Sleep? And if you can start to see that, your breath can make you inner feeling like if I'm feeling off one day. I get up. It's like things are off. What could have been what eat the so I go through? checklists wanted I e, but did I drink. What did I do? How much in training because some of my stuff will be Oh overtraining because if I and we haven't mentioned much of this but I think it's worth noting that as you get older you know that Exercise Causes Inflammation, so you WanNa do all the things to minimize that and the one thing is, but if you're an exercise. Junky and I love the feeling you love the high, so you WanNa, do one mountain peak, and then another mountain peak, and then bike ride. Then you wake up the fourth day and you feel like the truck hit you or whatever or you just feel not in the truck. Had you just feel what for me? What it feels like is just. And this is funny. It's like. I WANNA bite somebody's head off. You know it's like I feel there's kind of an anger. They're cranky. Get crankiest like. Damn. Why am I so cranky? I'm like scaring myself right now. That's one I know, and that's what you look. It's like okay now. I need to go into. That breath and they need to look at adrenals I need to look at you. Know Liver. I need to like just settle back a little bit. I need to do something that's going to help. Restore and if I do that, then I don't get sick and I. Don't break down, but if I don't listen to it. That's when I get hit. An I haven't done this in many many many years, but I would. I would get hit with such bad. Long stuff whatever like twenty years ago because I would just push. Learning how to sell my joints important. I'm I'm thinking about your common breath work. The number of incredibly. Many standards deviation, more energetic people than average as they age, who talk about breathing on here is amazing, so you just talked about it. John Gray about Montoc Chia talked about it. Berry mortgage talks about it a stand, groff, and hoping breathing I interviewed when he was in his eighties, same thing breathing, and it even showed up statistically enough across all the interviews unbel- radio that when I wrote Game Changers right analyze what people said made the biggest difference for them. It's typically popped up as something meaningful. So if you're listening to this and you're saying look, I'm thirty years old and I. Think I. Breathe Pretty Well. Thank you very much. Look at people who are two or two and a half or three times as old as you have figured this out over the course of their life, and certainly I know that breathing has been really transformational for me. you just heard it here from Kathy? Smith and If you, just look for those threads you'll realize you should probably probably figure this out and get on top of. It's not that hard. You change a habit so when you go to sleep, you sleep with your mouth closed or when you're breathing when you exercise, you breathe with your mouth closed. Really what's IT GONNA do. To make it really easy for you, you'll have better teeth there. That's great. We'll also. You'll handle you know what this the other thing you'll handle. Stress annual handle if you're running companies if you're wanting to be. Totally successful breathing. That is the biggest thing that I've noticed. You have to practice it when you're not in stressful situations, because then it becomes second nature, and all the sudden you're in. They're having a baby. Went I was having my two babies, the doctor coming. What are you doing exactly and it's different than llamas breathing. It's it's you know when you get into breath. It helps you handle pain when. When I was in a shootout in La is somebody I was my range? Rover and somebody dropped outside the car. Catch cops him. He drops behind my car with an semiautomatic gun, and they're shooting on both sides of the Range Rover, and some bolts are going through, but I'm with my assistant and we're in the range. Rover were like head on the console and My sisters have which we do I said. Breathe and you know it's just like. And then and then it just like because it keeps you very president. Because what are you GonNa do in this situation. You're in a really bad situation happens in business. You know something's going on now if I go I. You go to that place is like start yelling at people? Whatever's if you go into? I. You know how we're GONNA solve. This I used to when I was doing all my video productions and the video productions are expensive like when I started there quarter of a million dollars for each production, so I mean I have ten million dollars in in video productions. You're on the shoes and their long days and you're there sometimes till. Seven in the morning, and it's still two in the morning because it's not done until you get it, it's not like Oh, we're going to go home now. It's like we got it. We got to get this done. And so what happens is that something goes wrong and everybody's got you, did you? Who did it and I remember the director saying I don't care. Who did it. Just get it fixed. And now that's what the breathing does. It's like let's not go into like. How did this happen how to go wrong with like? How do we fix this right now? And more present and I do something on my speeches now. You've probably heard this, but this is really powerful for me I. It's called be l., T., breathing, listening, technique and So being the audience and I'll I'll be on stage in the I'll have audience so just say so. Let's take breath in for account of six months two three four. An exile! Now this time when you take the inhale, inhale up. Listen for sound. And name that sound in your mind. And Excel. We're GONNA. Do it one more time inhale. Find a different sound. And Sale. and. I lied I'M GONNA. Do it one more time. This time on the top of your inhale. Hold your breath. and. See if you can hear your heartbeat. And Excel? So what I do is I do that with the group and I do it like four or five times like that and I just show him. How in the? Matter of thirty seconds to a minute. You pull yourself out of the past. Not you're not thinking about the future you're here and now and when you're here and now and we're just like exchanging energy like we are now. This is where the power comes from, and this is where that mindset, just every single moment of your day of getting here and now and here now and here now, and that's where I just it just brings joy in my life. Because I just is just, there's no. Worrying about didn't happen or oh. My God whoops. What's going to happen? You know it's like right here and that's where I mean I. almost go into an emotional state with that, because that's where I'm really connected with Dave or the audience, or whatever now not wandering anywhere any which way and I just find that when I do that I get a lot more done in the day and I have a lot more time for myself. Wow, that's amazing, the power of breathing. We have. Time for maybe one more question for you and I'm pretty sure that breathing's going to be one of the answers here, but. If someone someone tomorrow, said like Cathy I. Want Your top three fitness recommendations. You've got forty years training people. You've created all sorts of cool stuff out there. You only get to recommend three things for somebody to do. What would you recommend I say consistency is the key to all of this so I just every single day of your life. Your body is meant to move. Find ways to to that. You enjoy doing that and. Gets gets sensual with it. I think people forget about the playful side like you know like you know like just I. Mean it can be I i. Get up in the morning and all. The morning I don Don and I'll start going and like I'm. Done. Bump bump. Up There it's thirty seconds you're. You're tease you. Walk Over I. Put my music on I. Do one like turn. Maybe you know like you were saying about your wife. I squat done three minutes, but it won't my body up. Do I call it exercise? No, I don't call it, but I do call that it's that synovium fluid I remember we have these bodies with all this lubrication and stuff. especially as you age, you gotTa wake. Those guys up I. mean you know you're seeing the top of the same thing you know? GET THOSE HIP smaller than don't forget to. You know okay. That was one consistency. Do something every single day. I mean I would say you know. Strength Training I mean I. I I'm just directing this to women, but obviously it's men also strong women's Day young. That's just my mantra. Strong women stay young without muscle and remember muscles everywhere in your body. So what your pelvic floor! It's your. You know the vaginal wall. It's all up and down. It's you know it's. It's the face I mean people go like Oh. How do I? You know if you don't do things that even create you know the college, and if you're not doing things that create muscle in your body, things, skin starts hanging plus. No more adventures in life, no more adventures in life, because all the sudden. It's like I can't walk. The camino that I did this year I went to burning man this year and I. Know A and it was a fun, my only my first time and Those adventures are I can hands as ventures because I. my body will tolerate whatever you know if you're not strong then all the sudden by the time you're forty five. It's like I go out with these now. I was rowing with a girlfriend of mine. Forty five years old. We were in Portugal. She we have to take our two to mankind, but they were heavy. She's got her side. She goes to pull it up because Kathy there must be something wrong. I can't lift the side I. Go okay, you take my side. Lifted, up, she couldn't lift the other side because at the age of forty five. This is not an old. Your muscle mass starts decreasing decreasing at the age of thirty, and so if you're not doing things to maintain it, you will not have the lifestyle, so that was strong. Say Young or strong people stay young, and then I. Don't know is enough for needed in other words. Move every day consistency and strength training. Yeah, yeah, consistency sort of move every day, but I think strength training I mean you know. Oh, no, that sounds, too. I mean I. You know it's You're wanting fitness because the thing about staying young, it's like. Steak, keep trying new things to stay curious. Stakes to keep trying new fitness things because there are so many fun things I mean, we mentioned blood flow restriction training to be strong, but there are just if you've never been on a boat, sue ball if you've never used a trx if you've never used, try all these things that each one and if you if you have. If you WANNA spend your money. On something depending where whatever income lovely you are keep. Increasing your at home little Chachi case that we talked about because you don't want to have to go to a gym all the time, because like Kobe might happen, or it's raining outside or you don't feel like. And besides you Wanna be able to do things throughout the day, I also want people to know that. Even if you're living in an apartment in a you know a city I mean I. I've I have written blogs about. How do you build your fitness corner with twenty five dollars? Or Twenty, five, thousand or two, hundred and fifty thousand, so I mean there's there's something for everyone out there. Kathy always a pleasure to speak with you. I prefer doing it in person in salt. Lake I like we normally do, but until this virus stuff gets handled. sounds like it's going to be a remote in view like this one to thank you for continuing to do your work. I'm still just having a hard time believing that you're sixty nine I think you're probably forty nine and you just change the birth certificate, so you could claim this. Keep doing whatever you're doing. your energy levels are amazing. You look amazing and I always learn stuff when I. Talk With You, thank you. Thank you. Thank you, thank you. Thank you, my hero. Your website Kathy Smith Dot Com. You're super well. Known people wouldn't have a hard time finding you at all and thanks for taking an hour of your time to share your knowledge with a whole lot of people. I appreciate I appreciate you.

459: Canada, Communications and a new decade

"This is a CBC podcast. Hi I'm Nora. Young welcome to spark through the holidays and well into the new year it can seem like life is about checking items off to do lists getting ready for parties. Wine check chips ups check and then they're all those New Year's resolutions that never really get checked off the list but still continue to haunt you all year long. Sometimes it feels a bit like being the chair of a telecommunications regulator. Hi My name's Ian Scott and I am the chairman and CEO of the Canadian Radio Television and telecommunications locations commission otherwise known as the RTC. Well what I mean is the chair of the. CRT SEE has a lot of priorities to juggle the CRT to see the regulatory RTC is responsible for overseeing the Canadian communications sector. which last time I checked has exploded on the broadcasting side hope to ensure that Canadian stories about broadcasting and Cancun sure but it's also about making sure telecommunications technology technology like the Internet our modern available to us and also play an important role in protecting Canadians from unwanted and unsolicited telecommunications communications? I'll talk about all that with Ian Scott and a couple of minutes but first a quick. Look at how the CRTV has changed as communications have evolved from the nineteen seventies lease to today. Today's been a pretty dramatic one for broadcasting in Canada so Thursday night has canceled at Sheffield Program. Look at the. CFCC proposals unveiled by its chairman. Pierre Juneau all this morning the emphasis is and Canadian content on Canadian radio and television stations. Nothing Judy knew about that except indication of this time. They're really minute. We believe that there is enough talent in Canada to Produce those programs. We believe in the ability of Canadian. Broadcasters how many Canadian Television programs did you watch tonight. How many would you watch if there were more on? During prime time these are questions. SOC- RTC is grappling with during hearings in Ottawa. This week just about everything on Canadian. TV and radio advertising time. Two Canadian content is regulated by the CRT but when TV and radio stations or anyone else transmit video or audio signals over the World Wide Web and onto computer screens. CRT hasn't been involved now after almost a year of considering whether it should be broadcast regulator has decided sided. It's cans off the Internet. Canadian wireless companies make a lot of money off you with some of the priciest phone plans ends and the longest contract terms in the world today. Canada's wireless regulator the CRT says it's heard your concerns this is making some big changes. The problem is huge. CRT says among all the complaints it receives regarding nuisance calls forty percent can't relate to spoof calls all heard stories of fraudsters spoofing the phone number of the Canada Revenue Agency or the M. P. or another official organization. Try to scam scam people in and steal their money the CRT to do list includes issues that hit all of us where we live. How much we pay for our cell phone plans how we can avoid falling for a scam email? L. Or text message. That looks legit. Does Canada have what it needs for the new digital economy or are we falling behind so we invited. CRT Chair Ian Scott to our studio before the holidays for a wide ranging discussion as we jump into a new year a new decade. Where are we at with the tech immediate issues that affect Canadians and along the way we'll revisit a few of the other conversations we've had on spark about these issues high in high? So can we started by talking about wireless in Canada. I mean I I think a lot of us have the impression that we pay a lot for our plans for mobile devices. How do the numbers stack up for Canadians in terms of quality and price? Let's great question in like you. I've heard a lot about wireless pricing and certainly We saw that in the recent election that Canadians have certainly expressed rest a concern. How do we stack up that? That's a challenging question There are lots of international studies and it gets difficult sometimes to make pick apples to apples. Comparisons just because of different plans things like subsidies for handsets but I will say right up front. That rates are higher than many of our major trading partners and clearly there. Too High consumers are unhappy You know it might might be an irritant for some people but increasingly mobile communications technologies necessity so that becomes really an issue for low income Canadians in particular. It is and the CRT ABC's tried to address that. I should note that in the last I would say two years. The rates for services especially the larger packages have gone down and about eighteen percent. So we are heading in the right direction. I'm also the CRT see a little more than a year ago ask the carriers to introduce use a data only plan that was less expensive So rather than all the bells and whistles and all of the calling It was focused on a a a minimum amount of data. And the idea. There was the people who might rely on in their house on their WIFI. And maybe at work on Wi fi but inbetween on public transit. They didn't have something So we tried to address that in the carriers introduced plans and that was a step in the right direction. But again I would say not. Quite enough The talks about innovative and affordable mobile wireless services so what would that look like innovative and affordable while affordable. I guess it's like classic question. That's in the eyes of the beholder and it depends on what kind of package you're looking at. I think what's important. Is that the wireless providers in Canada a hit all the nieces and I'm not sure that's the case. Today it's particularly problematic. I think for Canadians with the lowest incomes. We don't don't have if you WANNA call it a lifeline service a really really basic service and on the other side. People want the latest phones with a lot of data and they want it at a reasonable price that gets more challenging for obvious reasons if you want a faster bigger car. Sometimes they cost more but clearly. The objective is to have a wide range of services that meet the needs of all Canadians of course in addition to making mobile communication services affordable. They also have to be available in the first place. One of the things we hear about a lot on spark from our rural listeners in particular is the quality body of broadband or sometimes the lack thereof. Can you give us a bit of a status update on broadband in Canada. And what's being done to make sure that everyone has access who wants it I can in and again. It's a really fundamental issue. I mean broadband plays an important role in the lives of all Canadians. No matter where you live live it's a bit like the wireless story when I was saying there's good news and there's bad news. The good news is The CRT see actually looked in a very fundamental way about three years ago at this issue and in fact we changed the basic service objective used to be the concern was basic telephone service. We had to be sure that essentially all Canadians had access to basic telephone service. We changed that to be broadband service and we established an aspirational `rational target of fifty megabit per second download speeds as a a reasonable service in a modern economy As to what Canadian should have up. The good news is between twenty fourteen and twenty eighteen. I think the number went from about eighty percent to about eighty seven percent of Canadians. Etienne's today have access to a fifty megabyte per serving and about half of Canadians actually subscribed to that speed of service us. The bad news is that's not the case in rural Canada right it's a much much lower percentage and if you think about areas in the far north it's zero in the sense that no one has access to fifty megabits per second. It might be five or ten certainly not fifty so the CRDC created what we call the broadband fund which is a seven hundred and fifty million dollar fund that will be directed to projects that what will improve broadband service in the most underserved areas of the country and meanwhile the federal government and provincial governments are pursuing similar similar strategies to make sure that we get broadband at a sufficiently high speed to all Canadians? No matter where they live to have any sense of a timeline for that our target in terms of the use of our fund is to have a fifty megabits per second target Available to ninety ninety percent of Canadians by twenty twenty one okay. That's the easy part. The hard part is the last ten percent and the cost of getting to that last. Ten percent is in the order of eight billion dollars. The government last year announced its plans so to address that along with provincial and territorial governments and will continue to do our part as well but that will be the challenge. The challenge is getting to that last ten percent percents and we hope the combination of emerging technologies increased. Funding is going to get us there sooner than later but I would guess it'll certainly be in the second half of the twenty twenties okay. I'm Nora young when you listen to spark today I'm joined by Ian Scott Chair and CEO of the. RTC will hear more from my conversation with the in a few minutes clearly. Having adequate and affordable portable broadband access continues to have a big impact on digital literacy and Canada Nissan. Molly is a senior policy analyst with the Brookefield Institute for Innovation in an entrepreneurship affiliated with Ryerson University in Toronto back in two thousand eighteen she co authored. A report with annelies called leveling up the quest for digital literacy in Canada. So for your report you interviewed a range of people. Involved in digital literacy from teachers to policymakers people all across the country so just overall as a headline headline. How would you characterize digital literacy in Canada in two thousand eighteen? sopher this report. We were looking across Canada at the landscape of digital literacy education and training winning trying to get a better understanding of what programs are available in. What parts of the country at what skill levels and where people are falling through the cracks? And what we found was of robust but very fragmented landscape where if you are living in a downtown urban center and have disposable income you can pretty not much purchase any training you want but for people that are living in rural communities For people that are low income often there just isn't programming available all in their community. And that there's a significant gaps For people who are trying to build up those skills but but don't have the money to pay for it So there are a few different components. Here I mean on the one hand. There's just whether high speed Internet is just actually physically available in your community. Another is whether you can afford access access and consistent access and the third is your skill levels that you're able to acquire an upgrade. So can we start with the first of those. How much of an issue is it to access? High Speed Internet Across Canada so up about eighty six percent of Canadians have access to broadband internet in their home but the the speeds that they have access to the cost of that Internet Various drastically across the country in the Northwest Territories. It can be up to one hundred and ten dollars just for a basic internet package. The Sierra has set ah baseline fifty megabits per second which is a about the speed you need to load in our website without noticing a leg to to download a song or to or Artistry Video But many communities in Canada's still don't have that so fifty nine percent of people that are living in rural areas don't have access to two speeds that meets. CRT Standards Twenty five percent of Canadians across the country. Don't even have a ten megabytes per second which is a sort of a barebones speed that that they would struggle to to watch a video on youtube right okay. So what role does that idea of having consistent or persistent access as opposed to you know. I go to the library after school or take a class once a week. So consistent digital access both to the hardware the software the WI FI and mobile data is a foundational foundational requirement for being able to build and maintain digital literacy and confidence in using the technology as technology advances the the baseline skills the people need having change. We also need to be able to find information online to send an email but that the user interfaces and the hardware are changing constantly. So we're seeing more touchscreens. We're we're seeing more voice. Activated interfaces and without consistent access people are struggling to use the technology as it evolves and to maintain in their comfort level in their confidence using it. So what. What's the consequence of this? I mean why. Why does this matter so much? If digital skills and access to digital tools rules are not evenly distributed across the country it matters because technology is becoming pervasive much our homes in our workplaces but in our public sphere it matters because governments are increasingly providing online channels For people to access government services I and it matters to ensure that people have economic opportunity that they can engage in a digitizing economy and they can succeed so if there's already sort of an overlap between people who are lower income income Canadians and less access to the technology. What are the consequences of that? I think risk of of leaving people behind were particularly at risk of of leaving some of the most vulnerable people in Canada behind. So what do we do about this. How do we start to address the issue for starters? Insuring that that every school in the country has laptops available for students and has Internet access would be a great start for for our K.. Two students anywhere where we can be offering financial aid to ensure that paying for tuition for a private or a nonprofit program is not a barrier. What about the cost of Internet access? I mean people complain that it's very sir expensive Well and the cost varies widely across the country so there's some great advocacy Already in place to to insure that Cost is not a barrier at least to that that basic level of of Internet access There's been some really exciting Nonprofit and CO OP programs grams. That are trying to ensure that that Internet access is is accessible for low income households Nissan. Thanks so much for your thoughts on this. Now my pleasure that was part my conversation with Nissan Molly from twenty eighteen. She's a senior policy analyst with the Brookefield Institute for Innovation Entrepreneurship and the CO author of a report called leveling leveling up the quest for digital literacy in Canada. Now more of my conversation with Ian Scott Chair of the CRT see we talked earlier about the CRT's role in helping hoping make sure Canadians have affordable and available access to telecommunications technology but the CRT also plays a role in assessing the potential impact of new technology like five G.. Canada like a lot of countries is looking at upgrading to five G.. which promises faster access and is supposed to be Helping Paris as for the Internet of things world I know the federal government and some provincial governments are investing in five G.. Do you think the private sector's investing enough. who very much? So I think I think they are well on their way to prepare. There's a number of aspects to this obviously The real estate so to speak in the wireless business is spectrum. Spectrum and the government will be holding auctions of the spectrum that will be most used for five G. in next year and the year after but meanwhile the carriers are very much getting ready in particular they've been deploying fiber deeper and deeper in their networks and that will be an important step because whether you're delivering broadband service to individual Canadians at home or whether you're getting to a wireless antenna And back hauling the traffic. You need fiber if you're going to have the highest speeds so as we move into two thousand twenty you know when you look internationally. Do you think N- Canada is well positioned in terms of our Internet access. I think I always try. And look at the wireless industry a bit like a three legged stool and there's a few aspects aspects to it or at least three aspects of its three legged one is price and we've talked a little bit about that. The other would be coverage and the last one would be technology and the carriers do deserve credit the technology we have available in Canada today. Is that the most up-to-date we call it lt And it's available able to ninety eight percent of Canadians and we also have coverage of essentially all Canadians. Of course their areas and roads and places where wireless coverage hasn't been fully extended But they're working towards that. So unto of the three legs of the stool were doing very well on the third. There's work to do all the investment in Five G.. Sounds promising but the benefits of five G.. And that whole three legged stool of the wireless industry that IAN describes bribes can seem a little fuzzy in two thousand eighteen. We spoke to Amy Nordstrom. She's a technology journalist and news editor with I- Tripoli's spectrum. We invited her on spark work to find out what the Heck Five G. is and why we need it. Well there's a new generation of wireless technology that comes around about once every ten years and we're about to hit that point so twenty twenty as the date when a lot of telecommunications companies and mobile phone manufacturers expect to roll out the first five G. Networks and so that's why you're starting waiting to hear about it this year I see what's the matter with good old four G. Network. So why can't they handle things honestly for the average person I know myself. I'm very happy that I can stream. HD video on four G. L. T.. That's pretty much fine for everything that I wanNA use it for. But of course in the wireless industry you know the better networks to build the faster service you can provide by the more reliable your networks. Sometimes the more you can charge customers and the more you can find new enterprise clients who are willing to pay for that extra service so I don't know whether or not the average average person really needs five G.. So much as wireless companies are really excited to push it out and they figure once we have it will find interesting new innovative things to do with it. So do we know of anything that would be used for. Besides things like downloading movies really quickly. Yeah I hear a lot of ideas about this from the wireless industry. Because of course they're trying to to find that next big killer APP and their proposals are varying degrees of plausible. So depending on what you think about these technologies and and their uses they they may or may not catch on. They'll give you a couple of examples. One is robotic surgery. So there's this idea that if you have wireless networks that are super super reliable and have very very low latency. That's the name further delay that a signal takes to get from you to obey station and back you know you could do things like have a doctor in one place who's operating on a patient using a machine in a different place and I could see where there might be some demand for this particularly in rural areas that don't have specialists and in all these different areas of medicine but I don't know how many patients it actually sign up for that or how many doctors would be willing to rely on technology in that way And I get one of the things that I've heard people talk about is Autonomous Vehicles. Where you oh you definitely don't want any lag or latency sure yeah? There are autonomous cars that are being developed to rely on cellular signals for some key aspects of the driving. And and there's other things that Self driving cars are relying on. It's not just cellular networks. So there's this idea of redundancy right and if the cell network isn't very reliable in the place that you're at you also wants to them some sort of backup some other way that you'd be able to communicate so there's also a lots of radios and sensors installed in the cars themselves that would allow them to communicate directly with one another or with street lights and stop signs On the street so five G. might play a role in the future of self driving cars and again I think the Telco companies certainly hope. That's the case 'cause then they'll find a new business models for that but it won't be the only thing they self. Driving car is running on and so can our current telecommunications infrastructure accommodate all this no this is going to require really a a new kind of telecommunications infrastructure it will certainly build off all the base stations and infrastructure that telecommunications networks have in place right now for four G. L. T. E. but there's this big idea about what's called small cells which are smaller base stations. That telecoms are hoping they'll be able to install every you know two hundred and fifty meters or so throughout Cities and towns and that will give much more focused coverage and create a lot more capacity. They'll be able to use a lot more of the bandwidth that they're currently using To serve a bigger group of customers at once and so they're going to be installing potentially hundreds of thousands more base stations around the country. Four or five G.. So how much of this is driven even by the Internet of things the fact that we're just having so many more connected things than we used to have. Yeah that's another area. That's very very popular in terms of use cases for five G.. So there's is this idea that you know the Internet of things will be this massive deployment of sensors. They're going to be sensors in everything all over our cities. There's going to be sensors. They're monitoring things like road traffic and weather weather all over our homes. We're going to have devices that are online everything from our refrigerator to our pillows to our couches even Doing different things for us at home and then certainly in the industrial space. That's where I o t is expected to grow the most so you can imagine factories that have sensors installed to tell you when the equipment about the breakdown so you don't wait for that you go ahead and you know you do preventative. Tentative maintenance ahead of time is this is a very big idea in the wireless industry and it's driving a lot of five G. Investment and if this turns out to be the case I mean. There's going to be a lot of new business for telecommunications companies. I don't really know that IOT will catch on as much as people think. I mean smart homes if you think about it still haven't really gotten a lot of traction with the average person like it takes awhile for us to really want to replace our fridge with the connected fridge or sign up for that WIFI enabled couch so I'm not as bullish on that as I think. A lot of people are but it's certainly something that five G.. Companies are an wireless companies are really hoping we'll we'll be a a big thing in our future. I want my five G. Wi Fi enabled couch console when it really. So you could have it. You can have it soon. But connectivity for the sake of connectivity you know you really need something to do with that couch or to do with that thing so I think a lot of companies are exploring Iot but the degree to which they'll buy into it will be a big question so emmy what do you think will this five G. networks. Be Be worth all the hype for the average mobile user. You Know I. I'm a little bit skeptical. I think that it's exciting. And who knows what it will lead to a lot of people say you know we never would. I've had uber or lift until we had three G networks so I'm excited to see what people will come up with. But you know I think for the average person. The hype is a little over the top right now. Most of our cell phone service is going to be generally the same in meeting our needs for the near future. Amy thanks so much for your thoughts on this thanks Nora. It is a science and technology journalist and the news editor with I- Tripoli's spectrum. We spoke to her in two thousand eighteen coming up more of my conversation with Ian Scott the chair of the C- RTC. We're GONNA talk spam and scams no matter how many Geez you have nuisance calls and text and email. Scams are a big problem problem and in and I will talk. Discover ability sure it's golden age of peak. TV But in a world of choice. How do you find all the great programs out there? I'm Nora Young. This is spark from your friends at CBC Radio Today. We're spending some time with Ian Scott. The chair of the CRT well you didn't email that looks it's like it's from a friend with a subject line. You've got to read this. It's tempting to click on the link even if it's out of character for your friend to us four exclamation marks and spell the word read wrong or maybe you got a text message from the CRA because you owe money on your tax return with the Canada Revenue Agency. Really ask you you to pay it back with gift. CARDS SPAM SCAM calls phishing emails another malicious online schemes are on the rise and they're getting more sophisticated nothing that's a big concern for everyone including crt WanNa talk a bit about spam and phishing scams things. At least for me seems to speaking worse you know phone calls that look like they're from local numbers. Now we're starting to see these. Google calendar scams text. Messages was suspicious links. How first of all is it doesn't seem to be getting worse too? You yes is the short answer spam unsolicited. Communications generally is a huge problem. And and the CRT see takes it very seriously as to other government players and the carriers themselves to put put it in context a little bit. The government introduced the do not call list about a decade ago. And that really deals with conventional telemarketing where you can put your number on a do not call list. And then Registered companies or companies following. The rules won't call you and now there are exceptions to that and it raises some some problems and some concerns. Political parties are exempted charities surveys days so very often we get calls it the CRTV saying why am I getting a call from a political party. Why am I getting a call from a charity? And the answer is is because parliament exempted them from from that rule but generally speaking the telemarketing area has been working okay. there's about I think it's close to fourteen million numbers registered in the do not call list and when people break those rules the CRTV can typically identify them and proceed in finding them or do whatever is required to get them onside. That's the kind of legitimate side. It's the nefarious players. That are the problem problem. And that is an international problem. It's not just in Canada in fact the United States. Has I think almost double the amount of unsolicited. It calls on their wireless networks are still extraordinarily high. I think you could probably count on a quarter or more of the Times. Your cell phone brings it being an unsolicited call. And there's two kinds of these on the come from international sources one while we'll be dealing with it very shortly. There are some new rules coming into place actually December nineteenth of this year. And that's going to have carriers blocked calls were the numbers. I don't make sense. How so this is an international call comes in and kind of says area code one to three phone number four five six seven eight nine three and so now the carriers going to identify those nonsensical numbers and cut out the calls? Right at the source. So that's one part. The harder part is what you just mentioned. It's pooping is what we call it and this is where from all appearances when you have caller. Id and you look at your wireless phone. It says it's it's your mom calling or it says it's Canada Revenue Agency or your local police force and those those are generated via computer and it's so technology that allows that to happen and we're working hard as are other countries to try and reduce that and in fact there's something coming up in the near future. Stirs Shaken is what we call it which is a a system of call. Authentication is the best way I can describe it. And the FCC let's see see has mandated that US carriers get this in place by the end of the current year and we are scheduled to follow very quickly. Basically what it does is it will allow carriers to identify a call. That's legitimate and put sort of a call it a flag on on the call. So that when you received the call and it says it's from your mother and it has a notification that says this call's been authorized then we're ninety nine percent. Sure that's really from your mother and if it doesn't have it then it'll be a bit of a buyer. Beware situation where consumers should take care. Consumers should always take care these are essential their criminal activities. It's fraud And we have the same problem with unsolicited emails. Where they put militia software but these they're all criminal activities and we are doing our best to reduce crime but you can never eliminate it because I think the thing is just psychologically as individuals? We feel like it's our individual responsibility to and we feel stupid. You know I feel idiot. I fell for the scam. But do you think that we're getting closer to having these kinds of controls I mean. How are we doing this kind of at an escalating back and forth between scammers and the people who are trying to control it are we getting better at controlling I think so? And the carriers are working hard and governments and regulators and law enforcement agencies are all coordinating their activities. You may have seen in the news recently gently. There was a arrests made in India associated with a group of people who were making these exactly exactly it type of illegal calls spoofing Canadian numbers in Canada and it was shut down and that was a cooperative activity between Indian regulators laters and law enforcement and their Canadian counterparts in India. Police have shut down a call center where dozens of people tried to scam Canadians into handing over money. The police tweeted fake. International Call Center busted West District police during a raid arrested. Thirty two persons of Call Center on charges ages of threatening and so we are making progress The blocking of calls that source that I just mentioned will be another step. The stir shake and protocols another another and also individual phone companies are beginning to offer their clients. Sort of customized services where you can subscribe to a service that says yes S.. Please block anything. That isn't for example. One of these ten numbers right and carriers are are are trying to respond in a consumer-friendly way to offer services. This is so we're making progress but like any fraudulent or criminal activity just as we use technology so to the bad guys Are there things that are. Can I call them. Innovations in in scams are there new and innovative things on the horizon in the scam and phishing world or alternatively what are you most concerned they always innovate. I mean and some of them are very sophisticated. I think the calls we can educate consumers consumers about calls from CIARA indeed right now because it's coming up to tax season were working closely with Sierra to remind Canadians that. CRA will never call you on the phone and demand money or threaten you So there's a consumer education piece to this and we all play a role in that. I find the Moore. Nefarious ones are often in emails. Where we have malicious software attached various kinds of fishing exercises and some of those are incredibly sophisticated and clever? There have been some in government recently. Where where it appears that it comes from Minister's office and it might come to me for example as a head of an agency saying? Please see this asap or from me to my staff and the email looks like it comes from my office with my signature block at the bottom and it says to staff. Please pay attention SHEN ANSWER ASAP. It's from the chairman. People have instinct to immediately open it and it could contain malicious software and that's the social engineering strategy. That's being used as applied. The time pressure is from your boss Etcetera Etcetera. So you don't necessarily give yourself the time to reflect and think is this really real. Maybe I should check with my boss so it's an ongoing battle and as we said consumer education is part of it up inside companies might experience in my experience at the commission. Is We test our employees. We routinely send out our own fishing messages. And I can tell you. The results are surprising. You do fool a lot of if even sophisticated while trained individuals. I can tell you recently I almost got caught with one from my bank and it looked absolutely absolutely bhagwan accurate and was just before I responded I realized but they don't have my working male right. Yeah I interviewed a while while ago the global head of Cybersecurity for Microsoft who said something similar and I think if you're the global head of Cybersecurity for Microsoft and you're still still at risk of falling for scams that's that's they can be very sophisticated. I mean often the second phase particularly on that phone calls. It's one thing if you might be fooled into calling them back but often when the next request is to make payment in Bitcoin for example that sends off alarm bells for people. But the things were in it's malicious software contained inside of a phishing message. It's a lot harder and often. You don't even know no that something has happened. Yeah I'm Nora Young. You're listening to spark and I'm speaking with Ian Scott Chair of the CRT seat of course beyond helping deal with things like scammers and rising wireless rates. One of the CRTV longstanding traditional roles is to ensure that Canadians have access to Canadian media content on a variety of platforms and while there sure is a lot of great content out there that variety of platforms makes finding it complicated. I WanNa talk a little bit about discover ability on just a change cares of it but I know that part of the CRT's mandate is to protect and promote Canadian audio when video but of course now Canadian content is being produced in a media environment where we can easily stream content from all over the world. So what do you see as the the main issues around discover ability and the promotion of Canadian content in that context loud. That's a big lesson is indeed and I think government is if well aware that it needs to to deal with that. There's an expert panel. That's currently working in his due to report I think it's the end of January. That will be giving some advice to government on future legislative Changes or possible legislative changes and we will will be watching carefully as government. For example issues mandate letters to ministers to see what the priorities of government are but I think from the regulators later perspective. Our job never changes. I mean our job as you just described. It is two one help ensure that Canadian stories stories are indeed told that they're distributed and that they're found Canadians. You mentioned the tremendous amount of content. That's available today today. That's a good thing I mean. We should all take great pleasure in the fact that we not only have diverse programming from Canada eh French and English language and digits programming reflecting are indigenous culture But we have programming as well as news and current events from mm around the world. So that's a good thing. The challenges that the changes to the broadcasting system are undermining the fundamental regulatory framework. That's been in place for almost fifty years. We used to have for lack of a better term. A simple kind of walled garden the broadcast. If you wanted a broadcast license you came to the CRTV. You made certain promises about what kind of news and programming you would provide and how much Canadian in content you would provide and importantly how much money would be directed towards things like the Canada Media Fund and other agencies were funds that are dedicated to producing Canadian stories. But now much of the content is not coming from inside that Law Garden Garden. But from over the top as we call it. So the challenge for the regulator going forward is to find the best way to make sure that all of those companies binny's who are deriving benefit from the Canadian market indeed participate and contribute to ensuring the ongoing telling of those Canadian stories stories and clearly the public broadcaster plays an important part of that. But we need more than the public broadcaster. So how'd you find those Canadian Etienne stories now that the traditional walled garden of the broadcast system has shifted. This was a question. We raised in two thousand sixteen with Tessa sprawl. She's a CEO of a Canadian company which curates and distributes video content. She's also a former public broadcaster. Who was once the director of digital at CBC and while the Walled Garden still exists assists? Tessa sees it as more of a crine house. Since we can. Now see everything outside the garden the problem of discovery. No one has yet been able to to figure out how to crack it in the early days of the Internet discovery was through search. Then we moved to more of a social sharing element of discovery now. I think we're moving into this new space. A imagine the web as flocks of birds flocking from two to three and they're like eating beautiful delicious Berry Berry. That's the sort of open Utopian token version of the web that A lot of us grew up with and would love to to maintain. Then you start to have these walled gardens or I would even call them. Greenhouses you've got companies is that have created spaces that they don't want you to go outside of that space. They have beautiful trees in their bill. Berries and there were birds that are in there that are enjoying it. But there's such a big huge vast world there of many trees that have lots of varies. That are kind of seeking an audience and seeking discovery. What I would like to imagine as that yes we we'll probably have greenhouse when we will have platforms that ETA their business interest wants to keep that attention and discovery within their and they're driven to because of the business priorities of their of their companies? But it's important for us to figure out. How do we create modern media discovery companies that allow for a vibrant forest of trees so that the Internet can be the space of idea exchange that we wanted to to To me the conventional legacy media organizations need you to go to their heart figure. Who are we trying to reach? An how are we going to get to them. Do we have to have a tree full of berries like all kinds thousands of berries. Some of them not so tasty a couple of days or can we just do the one thing that we do really well and I think that's where some of the digital media organizations have really succeeded is is that they've defined exactly who they are. Vox Vox is explainer content. They take ideas and they explain complicated ideas and they've really defined that as their space and I think there's some awesomeness awesomeness in being limited in having sandbox that limits. You I think legacy media because it was built on we have to generalized appealing to. Everybody is massively problematic because the real strength is being able to target and figure out who needs to see this or here this right now. Tessa sprawl is the CEO of bubble. We spoke with her in two thousand. Sixteen all this points to how the CRT's role changes in a broadcast system that includes conventional legacy media and new over the top services. So what what. Now is the relationship between the CRTV and these over the top services like the net flicks of the world so the CRDC's approach to broadcasting regulation is based on licensing and the only other tool that we have is really to exempt someone from licensing insane. And that's the category that the Internet based service providers fall under believe it or not it goes back almost twenty many years the CRTV. I looked at programming delivered over the Internet twenty years ago. They reviewed it about a decade ago and in a less fulsome way about three or four years ago in the let's talk. Td Proceedings and basically the commission's determination was regulating services has delivered over the Internet. I'm would contributes significantly to the objectives of the Broadcasting Act and so you're always weighing maine is regulation worthwhile. Is it in the public interest and it was found that it wasn't necessary but I think now we've moved to another level. We have so much more. Content being delivered over the top and so many more people are watching Netflix or Amazon Amazon prime programming Amazon prime or apple or now Disney rather than conventional TV. It's really undermining the financial underpinning so broadcasting system so it is time to act and we have certainly asked government to give us new tools that we can use. So we don't only have licensing Jason or the absence of licensing that we'd have some more flexibility in how we might go forward and regulate some of these companies. I mean as you suggest we seem to be in the amidst this kind of streaming wars. Most you know it's not just netflixing crave Amazon prime. We've Disney plus we have apple. TV So how do you think that Canadian. In content providers and networks should relate to or connect with these services. Well I think you just mentioned one of the keys. Canadian companies are also providing over the top services on the CBC Jan is providing over the top services through through gem so I think both are going to continue to exist both conventional broadcasting television and radio and new over the top services. IT'LL BE UP TO CONSUMERS SUMER at the end to decide which ones they want or is it a better deal to subscribe to a cable package versus four five or six of these individual over the top players. That's one part I'm more concerned in. The commission is more concerned to make sure that the system is. Is there with the necessary financial support so those Canadian stories reflecting are bilingual and diverse culture. Continue to be told distributed and discovered Catherine Tate who's the presidency O of. CBC recently announced that It we would no longer be making King co-productions with Netflix. So I guess there are a couple of different models and options being Being tried out I think so and and these this is a complicated area. It's not just post about the productions about Intellectual Property Distribution Rights. Many of these large global players Require wire that Canadian producers give op international rights in return for Co productions and that may not always always sit well with the producers or content generators. It's an area that is becoming even more complicated in the midst of the current streaming wars where discover ability Lee seems at odds with exclusivity. Amanda lots has been watching this brew for quite a while. We spoke to her in two thousand sixteen. She's now a media studies professor at Queensland University -versity of Technology in Australia. Her latest book is called. We now disrupt this broadcast. How Cable Transform Television and the Internet revolutionized at all yes I think exclusivity is this next competitive strategy of of distinction? We're on the verge of a period where it's going to seem seem like there are a whole lot of these platforms. Launching and in some cases material may be exclusive or maybe exclusive for a period of time other content maybe exist on multiple platforms. It may take a decade for things to to shake out. And I think we'll come eventually to a more manageable array of services. I don't think people will be as trapped in an ecosystem in the sense that At least the business models that we're seeing right now. There's a flexibility in subscription and so the ability to add and drop services. It might not be that you have these ongoing subscriptions to a particular service in the way now that we've become accustomed to from a cable or satellite television model. Maybe you pick up net flicks for three months and you know you spend your time with their library. Mary and then you let that one go and you move on to another one so I think that's a coming challenge for the industry is what to do with Sort of the more mercurial Motivations of an audience once they start feeling like it's it's difficult to access all of the content that they want to watch so what's left for traditional broadcasters. Is there any any area where they have an edge in in this new world. I think one place is is the question of local. It's been a strange period This last decade at least in the states where we've seen a lot of our our local media in print form Going out of business and being eroded that does create an opportunity regardless of whether you're coming coming out of legacy television like a C print even in radio to really make a local mark because so many of these new businesses have been designed to have huge academies of scale and to to. I mean in case of Netflix. We're talking global businesses and it's great the kind of content that circulating now but in many cases I think the local content has largely been left behind and that seems to me to provide an opportunity. Amend laws is a media studies professor at Queens University of Technology Technology in Australia. Her latest book is called. We now disrupt this broadcast nor young. Today I'm in conversation Asian with Ian Scott the chair of the CRT see to wrap up our conversation. I couldn't resist asking Ian About Radio's role in the current media. Landscape in this may be a self serving question but how does the CRTV view legacy forms of delivery like over the air radio or broadcast. TV in a world of of streaming and podcasts and so forth it remains an essential part of the broadcasting landscape both radio and television and not just the CBC although the CBC is the public broadcaster plays a particularly important role. But obviously when you think about things I like news and current events we want as many diverse sources of news as possible radio And I'm sure this is important to you. In particular I think plays an especially unique role and parts of the country. Radio is the most important form of communications particularly in some of the more remote areas Where we have a community channels indigenous brand Radio networks that provide light absolutely vital community information. It's also interesting that in the face of various over the top services radio has fared fared slightly better. It's still being challenged by over the top services when you think of things like apple services or spotify but Radio has done a little bit better than for example television where the advertising revenues have moved largely from over over the air television to new platforms like Google and facebook. It's happened in radio too. But to a lesser extent because radio for lack of a better term is kind of hyper local. It's so relevant to the local community that I think local advertising has helped it so it's fared better than television but both both are equally important and will remain important moving into the future. But how concerned are you that that very challenging revenue so Landscape is going to actually collapse. The business model especially for you know really important things for Canadians to have like Canadian news for example so I mentioned mentioned earlier that going forward governments and the CRT see need to figure out a way to I'm trying to think of the best way to phrase this to bring all of the new providers the over the top providers or non traditional providers into to the tent and I don't mean that we have to actively regulate everyone in the same manner the government about a year and a half ago asked the CRTV. AC to look and report on what we thought were the key aspects of the future of the Canadian Broadcasting System and we we made a number of observations one. I just said that everyone who's deriving benefit from the system should be making a contribution. We also said that we need new tool so that we can find flexible ways. I don't think it's necessarily going to be one set rules for everyone because these are very different. Business Models Youtube or a facebook is a very different creature than a net flicks or Abell more quebecer or CBC in Canada. But we need to find ways where they can all make a contribution. That's the key. There is no doubt that financial support is required to ensure the Canadian stories continue to be told distributed and discovered. So the question is. Where's the money gonNA come from and our review is we think it should come from everyone who's deriving benefit from the system? Just finally in. I mean I know that you know. Crt He is very open to public contributions and hearing from the public about what their concerns are so what what is most on Canadians. Mind what are you getting. Your ears spent About from the Canadian public. I think we've talked about most of them Wireless we have a big wireless preceding going on right. Now and the wireless rates are very important. I would say broadband particularly access to high-quality broadband in rural areas. Is something we hear about a lot and believe it or not going back to the beginning of our discussion number one and number two on the list of issues that we get complaints thinks about at the C.. RTC If I do a top ten lists actually one two and seven Is Spam and unsolicited communications. Those are the issues that we hear most about from the general public directing their complaints to the commission. So those I would say are the big issues. Then they are all on our agenda and we are working diligently on all of those fronts in thanks so much for joining us of his pleasure talking to you. It's been a delight to be here.

Jade Life Coaches Chad

"Podcast. One presents the Chad Prager show your one stop shop for comedy, craziness and common sense each week. YouTube star invoice of the every man. Chad breeder brings his armchair philosophy and observational humor to the podcast world. Nothing is off limits and now for your host Chad career l. everybody welcome back to another episode of that. Chad. Pray Thurstan though. She had a practice at five. You should watch. She was screaming it in the microphone. I was like, that's what the microphones are four to pick up. I'll never say it again. This you will know us man ruined. Then you'll do want to tell you to do it girl. I had a guy who commented on the video that we posted last week of the Facebook intro or whatever the clip we did the social media. What am I trying to say that the podcast on Facebook, we did a little clip that maybe this is why you have to do the opening in a guys tell Jay to get the microphone out of her face. And I'm like, well, that defeats the purpose of the Mike. The whole reason of having it is, oh, it will be in front of your fall and we moved it around and try to show more of my face. Well, we, it's still the new is definitely the selling point. We have an ongoing battle with Jade and the use of the microphone which most folks using the microphone can be intimidating. It can be a little bit daunting. In a lot of folks don't know how necessarily to use a microphone in how microphones function, but it sounds easy, but it's not now it's not. You gotta get your lips right up there against it, and we don't record in a studio either. So that makes it a little more difficult because we're not sitting here with headphones on and we're not listening to ourselves as we speak that actually helps. I believe you, it helps because you know what you sound like. You know how loud you are, and then you know if you need to be louder or anything else. Right. I've never had that problem with needing to be louder now you have not know and never ever ever fact they have to choose to be quiet. That's why I always tell people, it's a life principle. I talked to quiet people sometimes. Well, I'm just a quiet. Person. I'm shy, introverted and yeah. Yeah, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Well, I'm extroverted and I'm loud and sometimes I have to choose against myself which means you have to choose against yourself to speak up because it's the only way you're going to get somewhere in life. People can't read your mind. You gotta speak up. So I had that little lesson with people who are talking about shyness and introversion and stuff like that. I mean, I'm a fantastic life coach your something. Ask all my best friends still tell you ask all my ex best friends from thirty years ago. Let you know. Yes, yes, yes. Yes. With scary world, we're living in the I know you never know what's going to surface. I've even been thinking back to my, let's gonna come back man. What's I thought about digging out my yearbooks. My high school English teacher, who's my good friend to this day, sent me a screen shot of what I wrote in her yearbook my senior year, and I was like, oh, God read through this. Yeah, so it was a little bit. Nothing's crazy world. We're living in, but hey, it doesn't matter if you're innocent, you're still guilty. I know that's the world. That's what I've heard boarding to Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey. That's the deal. Then it doesn't matter if you're innocent your cues and that's enough, which is basically what he says, this C-SPAN press conference. It doesn't matter. You're just accused you've got allegations will, then you know what we need to find somebody better who doesn't have allegations. You can create allegations for anybody, man, we added a second show in Lincoln, Nebraska. I didn't wanna do it why I didn't wanna do it. Well, this weekend after thanksgiving. And so we're doing Saturday night. The Saturday night after thanksgiving is oversold. So it's going to be a full show that actually expanded the seats. I think we've already talked about this last week, but they expanded the seat so we can add another fifty in there. But they went in at an show the following night, which is a Sunday night. I'm not a huge fan of doing shows on Sunday. We've had a lot of success with it. Sunday funday man. What time is it out on Sunday? I don't know. I don't have a clue. I gotta find out, but that is going to be November the twenty fifth, right? So the twenty fourth is practically sold out there. Still some tickets if you want them twenty. Fifth, we'll see. I don't know. I, I really, you can't tell Willie anything that's my agent LA will he's going to do it? Will he's going to do in God? Bless him. I love Willie, but what are you gonna do. It's funny that I named the dog for my agent. He did. I didn't, but they have the same name. It was a funny story. He's name for Willie Nelson. They share the same birthday. I really that you didn't know that? No, really unwilling billion Willie Nelson share the same birth. Both born on the same day. It was eighty two years apart. Oh, what I want to talk about it. We got some stuff I wanted to. I've got a list of things I want to talk about on this podcast. It's going to be a hodgepodge. We got a couple of things I want to bring up because some things I'm just kind of like bothered by a myth by a have issues, but that's nothing new. Now it's going to be little counseling session. I need you to life coach me. Oh, boy. I've been hearing you in your office. Have you what? What? Whatever it is that you do in there? I can hear you play in different parts of the news and then I can hear you on the guitar, and then I can hear you close the door. Then I hear you open the door and then close it right back. I don't know why I'm suffering right now because I have gal in my foot and we go, I haven't been able to walk. I know you've made me carry you everywhere, like a baby. No, thank God for medicines that they've put needles and injecting your, but I had two shots yesterday I could finally walk by the end of the day. I could walk again today. The pain is back a lot, but I can walk. It's inflamed. It's red. It's. Gross, it's nasty at hurts, Coutts rich man's diseases. What they call it from eating all that rich food. I wish you were rich and now. Well, I'm fat. From eating all the rich food. I prefer rich. I know you do. I know you do, but anyway, the gout, it really sucks man. That's a hard hard deal. Yeah, you're pretty tough. So when you started really getting upset and complaining, and then he started crying and stuff. I knew it was time. I've been trying to get you to the doctor and you're like, no, no, no. It'll be gone in twenty four hours. Sure. Enough thirty hours later. She's not walking. This is the worst flare-up overhead. Definitely the worst flare. It's one of the worst I've seen even clinic. Yeah, pretty bad, but it looks bad to nasty hole. Swollen, but I anyway anyway. Got it stinks. And of course everybody has to send you the message until you gotta eat cherries and I don't eat cherries gross. I don't. He really doesn't. Even when it comes on a Sunday, like from Brahms, nobody in the world knows what Brahms is you're speaking to the world. I'm sorry, there's a restaurant is an ice cream place that sells hamburgers and other things, but it's a big place in Texas. So Texans know about Brahms. Anyways, whenever he gets an ice cream Sunday from there, instead of asking the rest of us in the household, if we would like the cherry off of his Sunday, he always throws it in the sink. Nobody should eat the cherry cherries gross, and I apologized any cherry farmers that are out there listening to this podcast, cheers, gross cherries or not grossness and the farmers can send them to me. Well, Jade can tie the stem and the not with their tongue. Don't talk about her special skills now. I can't so, but cherry juice and other types of juice and don't drink juice. Juice drink real sheep's them Simon, you're going to be squeezing cherries, I guess. Oh, but no, that's just gross. I can't do it. Can't do it, but I don't drink beer. I don't eat a lot of red meat. I don't eat a lot of shellfish although I could eat shellfish every day of my life and just just not something that I do, but we do eat foods that are somewhat rich in wheat foods that are easy for thrill. And I swear, I think you and I, we need to. We need to write a cookbook. Oh, I would love that, but you don't cook. No, you would have to be from your side from your right about reaching out to my buddy. Lou Cramer. We, you know we had. He still has pork. You seasonings and rubs for the grill. And I thought I thought about saying, Lou, don't you send me all your recipes. We'll put him under my name. And market this thing, it could be a pork you cookbook? Yeah, we could put Lou down in the corner. We've lewd little face Lou face down there, but I think it about reaching out to Lou and say, hey, let's put together some recipes for the barbecue for the grill. Just, you know, a cookbook for men who live with women, like Jade and who the women like to eat the food and they like to complain about the food because let me Europe eater. No, I'm not God. Oh God. Oh, stop talking. She's a picky eater folks, and I want you to know that she will tell you in a heartbeat. That's why, what are we doing the restaurants and you can't decide what happens. Like, I don't know if I'm want this or I want this. What happens? Tell them tell them what happens. So I will order one of the things that I think I want and chadwell order the other one that I might want. And then when they get there, I decide that's exactly right. And sometimes I'm so sure that I want something. So Chad order, whatever he wants. And then when it comes. I don't like what I get, and then I sit there and look at his plate and he just switches our plates out the train amazing human being I, but there are restaurants like you don't wanna go to places you don't want to eat, but the stuff you do eat in jape. Let me tell you about Jay, her cooking skills. God bless you, babe. And I look, I'm not make fun of because you've done it. You know, you're not. You're not into all the cooking thing. Well, I just wasn't raised dinner for you could be like a bowl of oatmeal or Abol cereal. That's a whole thing or thing. And I'm just like, that's not comfort food. It is. When you were in a family of three, that's not comfort, fell cooking a big meal for a family of three. And then after my dad died, it was a family of two. So we did not cook big mills. I spent most of my childhood while my mom was cooking outside in the garage with my dad underneath the ranchero he was working on. My interesting cooking was was low, but it's getting higher show. We were out few nights ago a couple of weeks ago. She with. The party fell Steve and his wife, Tony, and we were talking about cooking chili. And by the way I make an award willing winning chilly that he's never made for me. I've made it. You just want to do yours. Mines involved. Now might chilly adamant in a while this involvement I out of out of fifty contestants. I won two years in row in a pretty major chili cook off Bragg Bragg, and it's a good chili. It's really, really good chili. You should make it. I'm yeah, maybe we'll see, you know to gift. I don't share it with just anyone. Oh, man, no, that you're about to share mine. Yeah, but that was talking about, you know, Steve started talking about his homemade chili that he makes with all nine thousand different types of meat, including bacon. And then Jade was like, I'll make a homemade Julie too. As you sit home is league not homering, you drink alcohol, and then you speak. And then you said I make homemade chili, and you said it has rotel tomatoes. So there's one. Can you open and you said this, then you said I do the beef and winning. Put the seasoning in there, and then I put in a can of wolf brand chili. And if you guys have never tried that, you totally need to and I and we use the hot rotel. So I have brought this Chile to work numerous times. I brought it whenever I was working with my precept errors in clinical and everybody loves it is simple. It's easy. It is and it's really good. Is it not really good? Yeah, it's good. It's good. It's simple. It's easy, and that I think that right there is the cookbook. We need like this shortcut. I'm not gonna say it out loud. I am short chain cut cookbook, the shortcut cookbook. That's what we're gonna do wouldn't shade and CHAD'S short cut, write this down. This is genius for the working class or for the for the working class and time lane. Got Tom, hey, what's her name? Paula. Paula, Deen, bingo. Mom, of course we were eating cereal. I will make elephants to are you gotta have one one big elephant. Some water pepper. That's right. Yeah. Let's see. Did you see this? I posted this article for my buddies.

Welcome back to the Chad braver show. So here's this minister on in Maryland, Maryland, Maryland's all about their soft shell crabs, big time, and you don't like stuff like that. I don't care for seafood. You don't like so Jimmy's famous seafood in Baltimore. Pita. Campaign that you know. To somebody asks me what's. People for the ethical treatment of animals. They had a billboard that said it had a picture of the of the crab there said, I'm me not meet, see the individual, go vegan. I'm sorry, I have to laugh. I just got a laugh at that. That. Jimmy's came back with another billboard across from him that had a picture of the crab pouring old bay seasoning on himself. And he says, okay, now I'm meet. Actually, that is funny. So let me tell you something at that point the the. The battle was on Jimmy's. He had a deal steamed with the IMI in steamed with Indian all kept steamed crabs. So that was talking about there. I'm mean not me. Oh my gosh. And so anyway, they, they cannot with t shirts and I was just the other night. It's like midnight is looking at these lobsters. I was looking at these crabs and you know, and I was getting hungry and hungry. I think we need to go to max for dinner tonight. As a matter of fact, I don't think it's supposed to be eating that right now without getting so either. But I don't care. I'm willing to take the risk because I'm just going through this article right now. But anyway, Jimmy's famous seafood. Pretty funny stuff so they became a little battle with pita. That was pretty funny that was going on some and they had a picture of Pamela Anderson wearing a pita shirt on Twitter. This here we have someone familiar with both. Now too much man too much. It's funny stuff. Gotta love Twitter. Twitter is a firestorm. It's a firestorm. I'm so frustrated back to frustrations. I'm so frustrated. Let's talk. I'm gonna talk about all the things in frustrated with frustrated with social media. Oh, I know because they're throttling me right now. They're really hurting my numbers in a big way. It's hurt the numbers of the podcast. I'm relying on listeners to tell other people about the Chad breakthrough show and every now and then I will see people who on Facebook or whatever they'll tag me because people say, what podcast should do. Next people say the chat, pray through show. I appreciate that. Thank you for doing that. Keep doing everything that we've done has not been telemarketing. It's not been telephone. Telethon telegram, television. It's Tele person. Tele friend, tell a friend that's that's exactly everything. We've built everything we've done. I wish I had a clip of Obama going. You didn't build that everything we've built at this point has been organic. It's been grassroots. It's been word of mouth. People sharing videos, people sharing the story that t. tell another. About, hey, you need to go see this show and things like that. That's what it's all been about. Social media has really throttled me. I think one of the things that has caused Facebook specifically to hurt me is the fact that I have a page call political cowboy and the fact that the word political is in the title hurts things. People go see political cowboy dot com. They read the articles that we post there and their conversation starters, we're not telling the news or just conversation starters, like Jimmy's crabs, famous crabs. We just start the conversation, you know, in some people get triggered by some people get upset. It is what it is, but the fact that the word political is in the name Facebook really throttles us on that. I know you've been saying that was hurt. Our numbers are numbers, have not been good on video views and video shares, and I understand the shares. I, what I look at it shares more than the views when I post video because in my rule of thumb is I want you know how you have the reactions are the likes, okay. What I want is I want to have more. More shares proportionately as a ratio. And I have more shares than reactions to me that tells me that people are telling your story that is the sign of success. That's what I want. The share ratio has still been good comparatively. There just haven't been as many because again, people aren't seeing the videos and I've done videos that that in the past would have you know, ten fifteen twenty million views, and these are struggling to ever get to a million. And so it kind of when that's your business that's kinda hurts and you're out of control. It doesn't make for the funnest chat. Pray, -ther, household. Yeah. I mean, you know, it's it's on JAL to bump it up. Okay guys because y'all don't have to be here with them. You're so funny. I don't over react to it. I do get frustrated with it though, because you can't tell me that something has that many views on a consistent basis where you cross over a billion to a billion and a half views. And then all of a sudden, then your view counts go off. And I know for a fact political couch. Oy dot com. October this time last year, September October. We were seeing seven hundred to seven hundred and fifty thousand visitors at day on political cowboy dot com. These days the I looked at analytics yesterday this week we had a couple of pretty good days at twenty thousand. So as of the end of January, we know for fact that Facebook which was the main driver to push people in the traffic to those pages, it all went away. Do you think that it might change after November? Nope, not a bit. I don't think it is. I think some things could happen. I think there's some things they want to happen. I know that there are things that are in motion by the president, his folks of saying, look, you're throttling back on a lot of you can't tell me that not just conservative voices, but a lot of political voices period. Anybody who's talks about politics or getting pulled back because I get that Facebook wants to be an entertainment industry. They don't necessarily want to be a place for news and they don't want to be a place for, you know, pundits in politics, but you know, you have to take. Those things. If you have something you want to say about politics, you've got to couch it in an entertaining way, which is what I've always tried to do. Right. It's people always. So if you want to market your business, if you want to sell something, let's say your real estate agent and you want to use social media to market yourself, you're going to have to learn to couch what you do in a an entertaining way or else is just a commercial and Facebook doesn't want to be inundated with your commercials. They want to get paid to put their commercials on there, but they have, you know, MSNBC and FOX, all of them are sharing their stuff. They're all they're all on there. But you know, I just know that you know, view counts, visitors all these things. For instance, the page political cowboy grew to a million followers between the space of July of last year when we started it to the end of the year December, it grew to a million. So that's what five months. Six month stretch, right. You grew to a million. All right. Then we've grown to eighty. We've. Grow added eight thousand new followers. This year eighty eight thousand and ten months. So that doesn't see the math on that doesn't compute right now it doesn't. That doesn't work on and I'm talking about on political cowboy. Now the new watch Chad, pray through Facebook watch page, which is where we post all of our videos these days. I, it grew to a million and a half in a space of two months, but now it's kind of been throttled on its growth as well. You know, even my buddy Graham Allen, his is kind of plateaued at one point, seven million Graham is still getting a very good view count on his. I don't know what grams doing. I don't know. I mean, you must be paying somebody under the. I don't know what's happening, but you know, God bless him. I hope numbers continue, but mine have been throttled in a big way in. I still look at my pages. I still look. They still have a big reach. I am big looking at what the reaches you take that one about the the crab, the steamed crabs place still reached one hundred fifty. One hundred sixty thousand people that I read that one actually the reach on it is still good. But anyway, you know, that's just me fussing about things. I- social media, it's a game for me. I don't know. We'll figure it out. I don't know that we'll ever figure it out, but we'll keep trying to figure it out. That's you know, there's just no shortcuts any of it unless you buy our cookbook. The shortcut cookbook made by Jada and chat break. Third, the shortcut cookbook learn how to add your wolf brand chili into your homemade chili. It's easy is good stuff, not bad. You put enough hot sauce on something. It all tastes good. That's true. I regretted eat and all that pepperoni and Hella Pino pizza the other day for lunch, man. And when did you have me sneak into the. Restaurant, Tabasco sauce. I had to bring a whole bottle of Tabasco with us. I saw dude yesterday who had a leather holster on his belt just Frist Basco. The bottle was in the holster that's legit right there. But yeah, social media, thank you. I just always have to think people for watching listening and sharing in the way they do it because we are very thankful. I am personally very thankful of you guys. Thank you for listening and following. It's it's really been wonderful. You've you've a lot to do things that we would not otherwise be able to do. It's been good and you know what? The future's bright. We have this project that's coming along with crtv that we're excited about. We're gonna be joined in a lot of our friends on their, you know, Mark Levin, Michelle Malkin, Andrew, Wilco, Graham Allen, as we've mentioned, Steven, Crowder, Allie, Beth, stuck easy, and just so many different ones. Deneen Borelli, John Miller. I'm a huge fan of John Miller. I love that dude. I love watching the White House brief and it's such a great guy in Crowder makes me laugh. Gavin, MC. Penis makes me laugh these guys that are out there that you know catch so much unjust hate from so many different ones. It's just interesting to watch Mark bowling has his show America on there. I love crtv and I have for a long time about a great relationship with those guys for a long, long time. We talked for a while about doing a show, and so we're going to start not only doing a show there, but they're going to start videoing. Just things that are going to help us promote this podcast, but you're going to be exciting as well and going to have a crew that travels with us around on the road. And we're going to kind of build a show out of our adventures on the road out there doing that. So you just have to look at things like that and say, it's a blessing. You know, it's a good thing, and I know people are gonna say, oh, you're still out for being on crtv. Remember. Remember every whatever, but no matter what you ever do to make any money, you're going to be a sell out to work. You have to go to work, and this is your full time job now, will it has been for couple of years? I mean, you gotta go to work, so what you gotta do and people call you all kind of names, but they don't pay bills. So I think people really enjoy that show your show. All of those shows you said, did you say Alexis? Don't you said, hey, Google. Did you say, hey, go because we just something, hey, Google started talking to us from across room. See now that's spooky. Now Trump sent out that, hey, Google, shut up. Yes. See how that goes. She started token. She wanted to be. She wanted to be a co co host on the podcast that scares me, man, the technology this going on in the world day cow Trump sent out the warning today. You heard it go off a little while ago, emergency warning that went off in the neighborhood, but it was just, no, no, we get them, but that's because they did a national emergency alert today. And what are we supposed to do with that? Well, they're just testing it all out. Of course. You know, of course. The Democrats say that it's it was it was a plot of Russia to make sure that that happened today. They wanted to send out that warning. It's from Russia, but whatever. So, yeah. So anyway, so now got Google talking to me over here. We got Alexa in house. We got Google, everybody's listening. That's true. Everybody's listening to chat break their show, whether they want to or not. NSA is monitoring. I put little piece of tape, bandaids over my computer screens may over the cameras in the computer. Yeah, scared who's watching me. We had to put one right here. Great man. He wouldn't be able to do yourself. That was funny I, it was funny. I don't know what we said because normally she doesn't respond unless you said, hey, Google, but she started talking. I did not say, hey, Google, or you keep saying, hey, Google. She started talking again unplug her. You can't unplug me, but I can plug her. I've seen you go to sleep like you've been on blog. Anyway. So we said that I per- pretty words. We've come up. Yes, they have. So I just got off the phone with my manager Arthur in, I'm gonna give you everybody update on things. It's been going on Hollywood because I don't know. We might give you guys a little called action here pretty soon. So as it turned out a year ago, my manager called me on the phone. He said Chad, right? A sitcom writer ninetieth for sitcom, and I did not want to do that. I was not interested in that. I said, there's no way Hollywood's gonna have any interests whatsoever. Anything I gotta say and of course, my manager, he's a TV guy. He's had some hit television shows. He's had a lot of success in historically on on TV, and he kept pushing me as Arthur Arthur pushes, Arthur likes to push. It's so anyway, I wrote this idea. Some people started liking it and then some bigger and bigger people started liking it. And then I started flying out to LA for thirty minute meetings and turning around and flying right back. It's been an interesting two thousand eighteen. It's been an exhausting, two thousand eighteen. I agree the death of my father. Two different surgeries, all these things, but in the midst of it, nothing has slowed down. We've just kept going. So anyway, went out there and we met with all the major networks. Everybody, except for NBC NBC said, we won't know part of it, big, shocker, big deal. We knew that we had some great meetings with some great people and had some great feedback and interesting things, and I did not lose a minute. You can testify to this not a minute sleep over any of it. If it happened, it happened. If something went down, I was actually a little more stress about stressed about it happening. We were because I'm thinking, I don't wanna go spend six, seven, eight months year in LA a Texas guy. I live on the road as it is. It wasn't scared of it. We'd do it if because I felt like, you know, have God opens up the door. I'm going to let my gut the judge in. That's, you know, I never had anything but peace about the whole process and learned a lot through it. So anyway, you know, we went out there, we'd met with them and and as expected most all of them. Well, all of them basically said, no, we're going, we're gonna pass for. Now we're going to table this thing. Get made the guys in LA my guys lot angry because they're pretty big guys out there in LA and and I think some of them and I won't say who, but some of them kind of thought it was going to be an open and shut thing. At least we're going to get a script or a pilot out of this thing and they thought, and I kept saying, no, gosh, I'm a little too conservative. I mean, I'm a little too outspoken and they said, Yep, but that's what they want. I mean, you had the Roseanne show that had twenty million viewers, and then you had the new, the resurgence or the comeback of the Tim Allen show the last man standing that just aired this past week that had like seven or eight million viewers, which was huge and they're thinking was, why do you wanna have one hit when you're gonna have to hits? Because if you wanna have, you know, because you want something, something noisy networks keep saying, give us something noisy, gives us something noisy, give us a new voice, gives us something fresh. Somebody that's gonna stir things up. They like, hey, we know this guy. Yeah, it's so I go out there and I picked him my ID and they're like, yeah. Great. Well, and it sounded like they were quite interested when you were actually out they were and they love the idea. I don't mean you know, I. I look, I got a reasonably high sensitivity on my BS detector. And I know when somebody's just giving inlet, we have some meetings where people just went through the motions. We had l. a. meetings where people are going through the motions and I knew it. And then I knew when there were people who are literally genuinely given it some thought it didn't hurt that guys, like rob long, we're writing it with me or guys like Eric Tannenbaum were pitching it with me. There's some pretty big guys out there and had lion had the power of Lionsgate behind me as a studio is a pretty big deal. So it's not like we just went out there. You know, some schmo who had a script in his hand and said, here we go. Let's let's write this. These guys. There was some heavy hitters that were pushing this thing. So you know, you go out there and do what they do and there you go through the things. I enjoyed the process. It was good, but you know, my guys look at it like the battles not over. I just got a phone with Arthur, as I said, and Arthur said, you know, we're just gonna have to keep pushing. We're just gonna have to keep pushing through this thing. You know, it doesn't make sense. Why are you have these guys that are conservative voices that have. Hit shows because it feels like half of America more than half of America's being under served in the entertainment industry. Why isn't more being done and why isn't more being offered to them to watch instead of this stuff that we have grown to see constantly. I agree because the last thing I need is another medical show that does it incorrectly. I've been in the hospital a long time and let me tell you I've hooked up with zero doctors. You know why? Because we don't do that. We don't have time for that all laws and it would be nasty, do not kill my fantasy. Maybe it's happening somewhere in the hospital, but pretty much I'm show where it's happened in the hospital. You work your butt off and then you go home, don't kill my fantasy woman. Go put on some scrubs. Things are going to give freaky. But I mean, even even, I think it was ABC even sit on a memo to its writers said, look, we don't want another hipster show about Silverlake. People wearing tight jeans. We want something America. We want fresh. We want a new deal. I mean, obviously they saw the success of Roseanne they're, they're going to try to do Roseanne without Roseanne. I mean, it's it's gotten ludicrous out there and I don't even want to speak to the failure that I believe that that's going to be, but hey, whatever to each their own. Keep trotting out this remakes nerve Murphy Brown. You know, now we're going to have a Filipino magnum p. I don't even know what's going on in Hollywood anymore. Crazy. They're doing a b witched with an African American and I don't care. It's just everything is remake a remake a remake. They're so scared to do anything. So Arthur, he came up with this idea. He said, look, you need to get the Chad pray third army to go out there and sit. We're going to give you an Email address in Email, some of these executives that are out there unless you know, let's tell tell them what America wants, and I said, but you don't understand my guys, my folks mine listeners for the most part, they hate Hollywood. They gravitate to a Tim Allen show because finally somebody's using their voice and they're like with gravitate to it and the Roseanne sorta did that. In the first episode, she really didn't do it in the rest of the season. But anytime they see something like that, they gravitate towards the ratings are good, but they've really kind of tired of Hollywood. They're tired of Hollywood wire. My people going to go out there, send an Email. Until Hollywood. Hey, make more money off of our guy Chad when we've already got him, what? Why don't we want to sell him to you in? So, but if you're going to be watching TV anyways, at least watch something you want to watch. I don't give me something that you can relate to. Right. Don't get me wrong. I still believe in the idea of doing a project simply because I think that there is such a platform in such a voice through Hollywood and trust me. I know there's folks who listen to this and they think you want to go out to Hollywood and get rich that I can't even tell you how difficult that is. Even when they start tossing around big numbers and big money and stuff like that. I can't tell you how difficult it is to truly get rich in Hollywood. I mean, even the even the the money, we negotiated for different things that we had going on. You and I talked about, it's like at the end of the day, we're gonna work our but off. We're still not gonna walk away wealthy from this, then it's less than what we have. No one, not one hundred what you thought it. I had no idea what I thought care to me and you walk away from it and you're going, you know, after you pay this and you do this and you have to do all these things. No, they're throwing around some big numbers, but the end of it, no, you're not walking away rich. You just not the way it is. I mean, you I can't tell you how it's one thing. I can't tell you how small your chance of ever getting a show on television is even if they want it even if they like it. It's still a one in one thousand chance. But even if you get it and you and your own for a season or two, you're still not making crazy money. You gotta have a hit and you know how small it is to ever have a Seinfeld or a friend or king of queens or or e r. or Grey's anatomy. I'm naming your hospital shows now or the was too. That was too good. They are. They what was my scrubs? This hit shows that are on forever. It's impossible. I mean, it's next to impossible a big bang theory. All of these shows that have been on have been on for such a long time and now they're in because first of all, television shows don't make money until they're in the rerun face till their syndicated in. They're out there. They're all deficit. They making money the networks. I mean, the studios go in debt in order to make sitcom, and you'll have one sitcom that pays for the other nine they make that year. Yeah, and that's that's the way it goes and it only pays for it. In retrospect, it has to get out there into syndication and make billions of dollars out there, and then it comes back. So anyway, you're not. It's not that type of deal, but I still believe that there's a platform, I believe in television. Although in many ways, cable in network, television is a dying thing because so much has gone to streaming. It's still a platform that I think in many ways can be redeemed. I think there has to be a way that you get that voice on there that you give commonsense. Erica that opportunity to speak what they believe in what they think. I don't know. I may be naive. I know that I'm very, very naive in so many ways and and probably overly optimistic, but I still believe in going out there and operating under the voice of America in saying, this is what Americans are thinking, blue collar folks that live with their head under a hood who are machine machinists, who are farmers who are ranchers, who you know, get out there and work on a line or they're in a distribution center somewhere or they're, you know, manufacturers all these folks. Their voices are being heard being heard. I was disappointed because it was, I mean a little bit. Yeah, because I was very surprised that there are like when when they weren't like that and then all of a sudden they were expected it I was. I was, I had no hopes up. I had no expectations in. I had several people who said, man, you got that news of them passing on it. You handled it so well, are you really? Okay? You know how people always want to psychoanalyze you and like I do think it would have been a mistake to just put all your exit one basket. No, God, no, luckily your baskets like an Easter egg basket ball kinds of a lot of different projects because I'm a hustler I go get it. That's true in. I don't believe in that, you know? So that's kind of the update on Hollywood. We're kind of in a holding pattern, you know, they had meetings again today about some things and the gatekeepers there. The networks are just said, no, we're not interested in. I mean, we're just not interested at this point in time, and that's fine with me. I trust the process. I don't think it's fine with Arthur, no Arthur's mad. Arthur's mad. He wants everybody, but he listens to us. He won't say, well, he's nice to me because he loves us, but I think he's these guys have created hit after hit in Hollywood and they, they brought them this idea in these in these folks said, no. And they were like, who the hell are you to tell us? No. We're telling you, this is another hit. We've given you, you know, we gave you two and a half men that was on for ten seasons that killed it. And Charlie Sheen hadn't gone crazy with all of his winning and his tiger blood, and they'd still be killing it. It's still be on. He might still be winning with the tiger blood probably is well. He's got some kind of blood and it tested positive. But, hey, they gave them hits and they still is what it was. So think it was an issue with the show or an issue with your background, all of the above all the above. I think obviously my background who I am my voice, you know, Arthur was like, and I kinda hung back. I kind of took the teeth out for a little while on videos. I was putting out and kinda got a little bit nicer in wasn't quite so political through the process and just trying to do because Arthur was like, well, let's just chill for a minute. Let's just get through. And I'm like, Arthur, they know who I am. I mean this, this whole look CNN has done stories on me. I'm on Fox News. They know who I am. You don't have to search hard to find my opinion on things and ultimately look. We're living in this rough political climate of people just losing their minds on both sides. And now more than ever. We need some common sense, and that's what I always try to deliver is common sense whether it's political analysis or or just looking at cultural situations and trends or just how people are living their lives day to day the end of the day. I just try to find some common sense and make it humorous and we go on with, I can't stop doing that. It's who I am. And if I and Hollywood's not going to make me not do that, I'm just not going to stop being that person. I can't. I, that's my soapbox and I'm not getting off of it. And that's just the way it's always going to be. I'm not going to change in order to get a sitcom in Hollywood. I know either you want me, I'm noisy either. You want me or you don't, and that's okay if you don't because I've lived forty five years of my life without Hollywood. Paying me a single dime. They haven't paid me a dime yet everything I've done working hard flying out there going out there on all these trips meeting with these people that. Most people who want to do this will never ever ever get to go into those rooms and meet with those people. And we tried to be thankful about that. I am thankful for it was a blessing. I learned a lot. I learned a lot. I mean, it was an incredible educational experience this year and who knows what's going to come out of it. You know, Arthur, we wrote a one sheet this past week or two on the idea of a talk show. It's never did what guys like Arthur out there. I mean, they're hustling, you know they're going. They're taking their work at the ticket straight to Rupert Murdoch. I mean, they got personal relationships with Rupert. I mean, they're wanting to go straight to Rupert Murdoch and say, and we saw Rupert Murdoch. I think I told you we were sitting outside of FOX after that meeting and here comes Rupert, Murdoch eighty years old. Worth seventeen and a half billion dollars coming into the office, didn't even have security entourage, just shuffling along by himself with his briefcase, you should ask him for five bucks going into the building. Going into the building, and then right after that was so or Salone sign, you know, it's crazy. Hollywood's nuts. It's surreal. I'm a fan of the movies. I'm a fan of television grew up on it. Interesting. Ooh, I got a call these guys back multi Georgia and who that is the largest. I gotta go this month to the largest a decline. They're calling call him back because I want to tell you guys about this event, and I'm going to go to. They asked me today, and I was like, Hickey I'm going. This thing is the is the largest friends of the NRA event ever going to be a multi, Georgia. Hank Williams, junior, Travis trip. He's a buddy Charlie Daniels, he's buddy and going to be live streamed over two thousand people there, and they want me to speak. So guess what I'm gonna go and speak for you. I'm going to bet altri Georgia, and then the following night this, these are the blessings. We've got the following night. We're going to Monroe Louisiana to hang out with Jason. Missy Robertson from duck dynasty, their friends charity. The family is the Robertson family, their friends of our, they've become friends of ours travelled out of the country with them in in, you know, good, good friends with our Robertson. The oldest brother and we're, he's working his production company. He and Zack drescher who's a cousin of the family. They're the production company is going to be doing my show for crtv. So a lot of blessings man. You got to look at what's on your plate. You can't look at the what if in the, oh, I wish I had that and why didn't I get to grasp that, and it was all an illusion. Now you gotta grab was tangible right there in front of your face, get it, which you gotta have. So we're blessed. I mean, I, you know, I just said, I just said Charlie Daniels is a friend. Travis trick is a friend. I just hung out this past weekend with Charley pride performed on the same stage with him. I was with Charlie pride. People were like, I thought he died years ago and I was like, he looks it. He's eighty four years old and can still seeing like he did twenty five thirty years ago. Incredible Neal. McCoy. As with Neal McCoy, which by the way Neal is is just past his one thousand pledge of allegiance, debt consecutive every day on Facebook live. That's incredible and built a huge audience onto that. He did that earlier today. No, he does it. He doesn't tonight. Seven PM seven PM tonight. So by the time we all are listen to this. He's already he's already onto one thousand one, but you know, guys like that you heard a couple of weeks ago. We called Terrence Williams and Graham Allen. We call Neil on the phone. We call Coffey Anderson who asked me to go to lunch today. He's in Fort Worth, couldn't do it because his gout and and just can't walk anywhere in all these people listening after name after name after name of people that we've grown in relationship with and businesses like nine line apparel, black rifle coffee and all these folks, we wouldn't have any of that. No, and not just celebrities either. Do I understand the point you're right, but the point I'm making is how many incredible incredibly neat people that that these doors like social media. And all these things have opened up for us and Hollywood aside. We've we've had such a blessing and you're right, because take all of those folks and put them in their own little bucket of influence. That's fine. The biggest blessing is exactly what you're saying is the people we've gotten to meet the huge, huge friends like, and I know he's listening to this Kevin way and I can go down just because you bring the whiskey and I, I know I can go down the list of people that we know. You know, again, I always talk about him Tyson Pfeiffer and Spencer James, Dan, Mary moon, and, and you know, all these guys that are out there that have been just a huge influence our lives, Susan Jones. And just the folks that we've worked with with the ride TV and the crtv folks and this huge projects that we work on and these opportunities of influence to go out there and do these things. It's a blessing absolutely blessing. And so I don't look at Hollywood and go, oh my God, I'm disappointed. I no, not an. What's there to be disappointed about Ivan, look at the social media numbers. I'm like, yeah, it's frustrating. I don't get it because somebody else in many ways is pushing the buttons that are in control of your sphere of influence or your reach and influence, but what are you gonna do keep on hustle, and I'm going to write the shortcut cookbook chat and Jade pray. Thor's shortcut cookbook, whose name is gonna come first on Jay. Do you said earlier? I I did. I was trying to be respectful. Yeah, but I can help. Right it to. I'm a good writer.

Ep 393 PODCAST | The Seven Deadly Worldviews

"The blaze radio network. On demand. Name. And the lower this is Steve days. The Steve day show. Greetings heavy Thursday, welcome to this day. Show here. Live on the blaze on demand at crtv. I Steve days Todd, Aaron McIntyre here with me as well. We would love it if you join us, let us know what you think about what we think Steve Steve day Stott com is the Email address you can like on Facebook and follow us on Twitter at Steve dais show coming up a little bit later on. We're gonna continue our freshman orientation week here on the Steve day show for our new audience of the blaze theology, Thursday next hour. We're gonna take a look at the seven deadly worldviews, the worldviews that are most in contention for the world view that established American exceptionalism in the first place that's coming up a little bit later on. Also later on in this hour, I had the opportunity to check out the new Gosnell movie yesterday. We'll talk about that and more, but we begin as we always do with a rundown of what happened while we were away. What happened while we were away brought to you by the mockery seems to be working pretty well. These days in Afghanistan to Americans, including general. Scott Miller were wounded after a firefight broke out between their security forces and the freaking Taliban. The gunfight left Afghantistan top police chief dead just days before elections, take place in the region. Here's a brief rundown of recent leftist meltdowns. I'm just gonna take him down if your property that is my property property. This is, oh, that's your property to neighbors property. He's a gun owner. I would watch be careful. If you guys shoot me over that, that would be great. That would be really like. This dude beat up Nevada, GOP gubernatorial nominee. Adam lacks campaign manager. It was working as a tracker for a George Soros linked group, Nancy, Pelosi, ladies and gentlemen. We owe the American people to be there for them for their financial security, expecting the dignity and worth of every person in our country. And if there's some collateral damage for some others who do not share our view while so be it to Twitter, nonexistent community standards, call me a hater. Call me an anti Semite. Stop it. Termite. And according to Twitter, Louis Farrakhan is more than welcome to continue using their platform to spew his antisemitic garbage. Remember this when you see people like Ted Cruz, getting chased out a restaurant by a mob. You're going to use the word Baldwin is here to explain. I don't wanna be the word police, and that was not my intention, but I also believe in calling out talking points and to hear him, bring that up. I had to. I had to say something. Oh, by the way, here's a handy running list of things you can't say on CNN and finally actresses cure nightly. And Kristen bell say they won't allow their daughters to watch certain Princess movies because patriarchy. And that's what happened while we were away in two minutes or less. Ward. Where to begin, you know, let's just. Like it says in my favorite, maybe my all time, favorite Rankin bass, Christmas special, which those are coming out soon. By the way, gentlemen, it's about seventy days until Christmas. Okay. On began. Yes. Twas the night before Christmas. All right. When approaching tall piece of cheddar best to start from the top. Okay. So let's go to Afghantistan. What are we doing. Dot go, isn't that the same question from like. Seven years ago. I mean, we just kind of sitting there. We can dust it off anytime and maybe officially answered, I don't. I don't know. I don't want to be too cavalier about it, but even the darkest of things alternately do have a punchline sooner or later and punchline might be the thing that actually saves real lives and stops bleeding. So yeah, this this is kind of becoming a joke. And this is from a guy who has publicly said before multiple times. I supported the original effort there and I did so unapologetically, but we there has to be an end game. It's been seventeen years. Do you remember what the original effort there was? Do you remember what it was killed? Osama bin Laden was well into depose whom to to Taliban killed those people yesterday Halloween. What did we say? What did we say on Monday guys? Foreign policy can't be dog Matic. What point are we going to realize and say, we people in the Pentagon, realize the worldview difference in that part of the in that part of the world. I, it doesn't seem to be getting that message does not seem to be getting through no. Well, in this case, the president is giving the right speeches and talking points on this. And then you just turns around in the minute that the, you know, the Pentagon, rattles, zipper, he shows up come here. They're like every other backstage groupie at a rock concert and shows up and says, yeah, time to make Handa har- time to make kinda hard. Great again, why do you know why? Well, I think I think ultimately they're still being there is an admission that you can't make it yesterday. Again. I think it simply say was never great and well, and it can't, but it can't be great whether we're there or not either we're not there and terrorism is flourishing or their where their ad infinitum and we in order to make sure the terrorists aren't flourishing either way though, I think we're fighting terrorists. I think that we need to simply come to terms with the fact that we and this is what nobody on either side of our political aisle and pretty much in the west anymore. We have an existential enemy and we are going to be fighting. Them long term, no matter what there's no little beer summit can can take care of that. And that's why it's going to be pretty damn Andy that we're talking about worldview today, Steve, because this is a fundamental existential worldview issue. Here's the thing we are. We are in this foreign policy no-man's-land that we talked about Ben Sasse being in terms of domestic politics yesterday where he wants to go out and talk like Bill Kristol, and then go back to the Senate and vote like Ted Cruz. And there's not a platform to build a base doing that. Because what happens is the Bill Kristol crowd, the max boot crowd gets all excited. Hey, this guy's got a cell everybody out just like we do, and then they watch your voting record like, well, wait a minute. This guy's in actual conservative. He's not one of us. And then what happens is the the Trump cult. Crowd forget there is the Trump called still exists. It's just not nearly as rabid now that he's president and he's got wider support than when we just saw this phenomenon in the primary, the Cheeto Jesus phenomenon. But the Trump called crowd thinks that SAS is out there undermining the president's agenda and votes for it about ninety percent. In fact, SAS is more for the president's agenda that apparently the president seems to be today's, but but but he has no base because he's trying to he's Ben Sasse trying to work within a world that does not exist. And you know, one of the things we talked about on Monday is you have to realism over consequential. You have to accept the world for what it is and if you want to change it, then you have to create tactics that create that change. Ben Sasse is trying to act like he's a third party politician as a Republican that's not gonna work and what will happen. If he continues down this road, he's ailing and everybody. No one's gonna trust. Him he'll get. He's already being build up as a rhino when he's got the second best voting record in the Senate. Pardon me next to Ted Cruz. In on the other hand, he keeps he'll never win over the. Let's all work at CNN for the rest of our careers fake David Gergen crowd because he he votes with for Trump stuff, which is what they really hate about. Trump see Bill Kristol and those people their issues with Trump are not. The moral issues were concerned about. It's that and we and that's what we've learned when Trump whenever Trump governs conservatively and they oppose him. You learn that their issue real. That's the false objection. The issue is not that Trump's profane douchebag ass. The issue is the profane douchebag ass who every now and then does stuff far more conservative than George W Bush ever did. And that's that's what the real offenses in other words, they the real offenses you. Yes, that's right. They don't hate Trump. They hate you. They hate his base, those of you, the voter form and not even just the Trump crowd, any of you that voted for him whatsoever. Thinking that there was a chance he might do something good because what happened is the people the crystals and the and the boots of this world that ran this party for so long. Long. There's only one group of people that hate more than Democrats you folks watching shows like this. They hate your guts, that's what they hit about Trump hate his base. Well, the same thing we're doing is we're doing the same thing here with foreign policy. Choose either were terra forming culture. Or we're going to do what the president said in Riyadh last year, not our job to tell you how to live. If you cross us, we will bomb you back to the freaking stone age. We will bomb you back to win. Muhammad was illiterate, which was his whole life that's we will do until then we don't care not our place to tell you how to live but shoes. One of them. Because if we're Tara forming culture here, which is the neo-con bushy system. Well, we're seventeen years into this and Afghantistan now seventeen years this month. In fact, it's almost seventeen years exactly. There's not one Christian church in Afghanistan. There are there are fewer Christian churches in Afghanistan now than there were when the Taliban was in charge. So there's no religious freedom there. We still have the Taliban is able to take out high ranking domestic infrastructure officers of the local provincial government seventeen years in the early one ever nearly one of our generals, yes. We are the worst case doors of all time. We are the worst imperialist in the history of the planet. So pick one either. We're gonna tear a form culture or we're going to say, you know what? If you guys let the Taliban back in we're gonna turn this place into a freaking parking lot in five minutes period pick one, but we are trying to do Confucius, say, man who straddle fence for too long ends up with his nether regions caught in it, and it's irks, and that's what our foreign policy is in the Middle East right now. What is it? Do you know what it is? No, I'd like it to be actually. I thought the president's speech in Riyadh last year was brilliant right on the money, and I'd like it to be that, but we haven't really followed up on that. He gives great speeches, and then what happens is when the Saudis turn around and try to try to push back on here and cutter. Rex Tillerson the secretary of state sides with the cutter lobbyists that are paying corporatist buddy seven figure salaries in DC. And then when he says, we need to pull. Out of Afghantistan and of people have died. He stands up there and gives a speech and says, well, the general say, we gotta we gotta go and make Cantu har- great again, which isn't, what are we doing here? Actually, I do have an answer. I do know what our foreign policy is it based on what they're doing, not what they're saying and it goes back to, they know, and that's why we're there that we have an existential there for our foreign policy is trying to kill us guys. They, they hate us to the point of wanting to kill us. That's the own, but they won't say that it allowed. They won't identify really what the day is. And that's my point when I say we need an endgame, we needed endgame of saying what the truth is, for starters, otherwise this wheel spinning will go on infinitely. We might have created Guantanamo Bay Todd. Well, there's that's US territory that because we don't even admit who in what the enemy I agree do something they create create a quantum obey their like we had in Cuba for years, and we say, you know what? We, that's our land. And if post Cuban missile. Crisis. If you try yet again to impose on us, we will make you rue the day, your daddy met your mama and then and then you know what? We don't care, how many burqas you wear. We don't care if you put berkers on newborns, we don't give a rip. It's not our way of life. It's yours. Just don't get in the way of ours because if you do, we got a fleet of beef, fifty twos, ten miles away, and we going to bomb you back to before Muhammad met the angel Gabriel in a cave. That's what we're gonna do. Then then pick strategy that defines what victory you can't pick a strategy if you will not honestly admit what the truth is their strategy. We just came away from eight years of saying, you know if we just had a good jobs program, we could really clean things up over there. No, no, no. And and we seen, I mean, remember your analysis of Donald Trump's foreign policy speeches before he came president more than any other speech are like, he just talked for five minutes. I have no idea what he said. We're still living in that despite the speech that you love very much from him, execution wise, we don't have a fundamental belief of. Exactly what it is they are in what they are going to do to us because of progressivism and political correctness. We can't say that it on any level. Islam is inherently what it is and what it's showing itself to be in. Again, we have to make this distinction all the time. It's not every single Muslim is a terrorist, but it's we've had this conversation over and over again. You look through their teachings. It is. It lends itself, and that's a really, really kind way to put. It lends itself to what we see from the Taliban and what we just saw from the Taliban and the last twenty four hours over and over and over again. Todd is absolutely right. We have to have an end game, but we can't have an endgame until we admit what the enemy is in what the opponent is, and and we won't do that because we have a bunch of progressives because progressives in their March through the institutions they took over the west points of the world is well, we have a flawed. We've. Have we have James. Madison's Mattis a progression is a bad ass, but he's also progressive. That is the problem, the fundamental worldview differences. And again, just one more thing. If you are a progressive again, we won't harp on this. This is Steve day one week here on on the show. If you're a progressive, you believe that human nature is basically good. So cultural Tara forming instead of just killing people. If they cross cultural terra forming is actually the preferable route because you believe human nature is basically good. So human nature is basically good. It can be made. Great. Again, we're good again or perfectible, and we're going to give you getting into that later on today's a good buddy of mine ran for congress. If you years ago and asked me if I would give him some advice, you know, just privately held him out any. He just hired this really respected consultant firm. And so I said, no, I'm not going to do that without their permission because here's what here's the worst thing that can happen for your candidacy is for you to take their advice. Nine to five every day, come home from dinner, get be frustrated and you call me. Up at eight o'clock at night and and I put a bug in your. I'm not there all day. I don't know what they're telling you. Okay. Dude, code. Go all in man. So unless you if they come to me and then I'm happy to help if you think I can offer anything is a friend, but you're better off even if I think their advice sucks. You're better off taking their bad advice consistently than having than calling me at night and having me undermine everything they were trying to do during the course of the day. That's what we're doing here at this point. At this point, I would if you force me because I know that's our new favorite religion in America, false binary choice America. We love that. So if you forced false binary choice on me gun to my kids heads choose, I would take, I'd rather do the progressive Neo Cantera forming cultural thing all in an by. Don't think that has a chance of working cake is I think, I think human nature is not basically good government can't force people to be good. Government is the result of the fact people are not good. All right, but I, we are better off doing what's wrong all the way through. We would have more success than we're having right now. Trying to walk have a foot in each of these camps. Where is it? Yeah, we're, you're, you're trying to cultural Tara form. Well, you're tear form and say, hey, the west, we're not. We're not your enemies. We're we're okay cultures hours, but you see that mountain that used to be there yesterday. Yeah, MOAB just took that out, but we're your friends. Everything's fine here. Our is not superior to yours, and yet we think we're going to help them stab, which a better culture. Do you know how that works? And I never will. Yeah, because what is euro times hero, gentlemen, what is your timeshare? It's. They're trying to prove it's less than zero. 'cause they're trying to prove it one hundred. I don't. So we're going to skip over the leftist mob thing because that's evergreen evergreen every now. All right. I want to go to the Farrakhan thing because it ties into what we talked about yesterday at this time. So. I think we need to have more of a conversation about the antitrust angle that we opened up in this discussion yesterday. And if you weren't here yesterday, the point was made will Aaron broached it, and then he kind of triggered, you know, my thought process to take it a step further because tire little older than Aaron. And so we were around when Ma bell was broken for anti-trust reasons. I don't think Aaron was even born yet 'cause I was actually in the eighties when that happened, but think about the antitrust reasons Ma bell was broken up for was mob l. determining who gets a phone number, not to my knowledge. I mean, when you went when you went to apply for a phone number to Ma bell, say, you know what your particular socio economic views are so offensive to us. We're not gonna give you a phone number where they doing things like that now. And if you had a number where they determining arbitrarily which causes yes. They did. They have an algorithm that screen the calls that you received, whether you got that call or not. Did they did they do anything like that. Did they determine what you could say their community standards were on what you could say on, said, call, was that determined? Let me check my cheat for codewords. No, there was nothing like that either. And yet we thought they were a an antitrust threat to the point that we broke them up and and I don't remember, you know, as there'd been one conservative group that's ever gone back in history and so that was a bad move and we should have, you know, not decentralized that utility. Can you think of? Is that argument ever been wages? I haven't seen that particular white paper. Okay. So I'm sorry. I don't mean it interrupted, but this this, this conversation we need. I don't need like it's not on here or something because this goes, this goes, I think, way beyond just antitrust for a particular social media platform. As I brought up yesterday, Google. I mean alphabet and Amazon, they own a lot of the web, the web surface that that we see nowadays and at the same time, the NSA if you believe Edward Snowden, if you believe Edward Snowden, the NSA is using companies like alphabet in order to spy on you. So I don't know if we're ever going to be successful even if we were able to broach antitrust or whatever on on legislative level, I don't know if we'd ever be successful because the NSA ain't gonna wanna break up these large platforms into smaller pieces as well. So what Ahrends talking about and I know you love these movies, this is fiction coming. These are the Frankenstein monsters. The real one. Created by us with good intentions along some lines and here and here they are and they're owning us and controlling us. We don't even and we know that on some level, but we have no idea. We don't know what we don't know about how much we are under that. I think Alex Jones of fraud in a fiend I won't. I wouldn't spend the salt in my tears, political capital doing anything to defend them on any level. I think he's a fraudster and if you send me links to info wars or gateway pundit, or politic act or snow, we don't even acknowledge them as legitimate on this show. They're kind of all bundled into the same pile of scam. But if we're good as say, if we're gonna give these these tech giants that now have the sort of reach Ma bell had particularly in the case of Facebook. Capturing data that Ma Belle never had because that's the problem is when they're capturing this amount of data, the your ability to create a competitor now is exceedingly limited. Remember the US fell when Trump lead that suit against the NFL for anti-trust, they won the case. Remember they won that the NFL was a monopoly. They won the antitrust case. It's just the the damages they receive only a dollar and that's why the US f. l. folded but actually won the case on the principle that the NFL wasn't antitrust monopoly. They won the, they won the case. So here we're dealing with with with an entity that has such a such a grip on data that is simply not realistic that you could create a full blown competitor to them in the next year or two because they can. They have. They have a grip on the customer base such a huge advantage over you. It's not fair. It's not a fair labor market or fair competitive market. So in what hand this, this is apparently going to be our theme today. No-man's. So we're gonna tell the social media giant's on one hand that you can have editorial bias in commentary like a journalistic entity like crtv or the blades or the New York Times, but but face none of the the, the libel or slander laws that that we have to get insurance against that we are up against, okay, you don't have to, but you can have that power without any of the responsibility in. And then on the other hand, we're gonna let you actually have more control and sway over mass media and communication than mob l. had as a public utility before it was broken up for anti-trust. That's that's not a recipe of liberty and freedom. You can't let them tiptoe between the raindrops all you need to echo yet again, and I won't. I paraphrase it back, but when I said there the whole notion that they're a private company, they can do whatever they want. And I said, well, yes and no, you said, well, it's, there's a difference between the people. So you have to serve and how you have to serve them. That's not even like some nuance gray area that is so fundamental to what you're talking. I mean, imagine if Ma Bill said for, let's say that we're having this conversation thirty years ago in mob l. said, Alex Jones can't have a phone number because he says, racist, fraudulent, conspiratorial, things that are bad for public and sunshine. But Louis Farrakhan can have a phone number that he can call you with with his racist. You know, fraud scam conspiracy things that's that's kind of in the in the realm of what we're talking about here. And if we're going to set those kinds of precedence, I think we all know how this is going to end right? And this is so you cannot have again force them to choose one. I don't believe they should have to carry content. They don't want to carry just like, I don't believe the New York Times should have to have a conservative columnist doesn't want one. And the blazin crtv shouldn't have to hire a leftist if it doesn't want one. Okay. But, but because in exchange for those exemptions. So that we will then practice some form of good faith than for in exchange for that public exception to our conscience, we then can't slander people. We can't liable people. And when when when Facebook and Twitter are saying your message is so offensive that we won't grant you the effect of a phone number, we won't air your political commercial that if they're not if they're not a full blown media entity, like we have in the right in the left, then they're getting away with what amounts to Lander slander and libel because you're letting them practice editorial comment without any editorial standards. Okay. That's the very definition of yellow journalism guys. Yeah. And you, you gotta get rid of this whole aspect of your business. That is a dark web. You talked about it all the time. Again, the fact that you have no real no true sense of the degree to which you have succeeded or failed via the social media pet form over how many years now that that that's fraud that is fraud. They either if they can't tell you which is incompetence or they won't tell you which is lying or the what they would tell you is a lie that they have in fact manipulated to be. So I, it's worse. Still the rabbit hole just keeps getting deeper and deeper and deeper. The the rabbit hole to keep harping on this, but say you break up a Facebook as violating antitrust laws. How are how would a competitor then come to the forefront. Google completely different entity as well. That's why this conversation is not just about social media, not just about Facebook, but it is about the entirety of of of the internet, honestly. And I just don't see this this needs to happen, but it is a rabbit hole in the further down the rabbit hole you go, the more you see where the power is and where it's going, and who is using that in, which is why brought up the NSA angle and why I don't think the government would have our government. Currently construed would have any interest in trying to break up anything having to do with large data because or big data because it actually works in tandem with their purposes as well for national security. I think we would all agree. We are tired of the scourge of fake news, but you don't get to determine what is fake news without yourself being held accountable for whether you're guilty news, right? So. So you we see a lot of other fake news as well is in the in the the healthy lifestyle market. When you look at super food labels, and you walk into one of these SuperFood market stores and say, hey, check out how healthy this is. We'll turn around the the packaging look at the label, and you'll see something called supplemental facts.

We come back here in a couple of minutes here, live on the blaze and on demand later today at crtv headed chance yesterday afternoon, wife, and I, after we show when out and saw the new movie about Kermit Gosnell and we're to break down, look at the way the movie tells the story and the quality of the film making is well, because we got to be good. We can't just have good stories. We have to tell our stories, well, talk about the movie and its messaging in the way it conveys those messages. We'll come back. Back here on the big show, live on the Blace on demand here at crtv, Todd, and Aaron is here are here with us as well art. So yesterday after the show had a chance to get out the wife and I wouldn't checked out the new Gosnell movie and. You know, I remember well, when that trial was going on, I was syndicated nightly with Salem radio network at that time and our first top ten market we ever landed. Actually was Atlanta was the top ten market. But the first top five market we ever landed was w NTP in Philadelphia. And this before you guys came to work here when Jenin Rebecca were here, and we were so excited to be live in Philadelphia and a top five market. In one of the things we were doing when we first heard about there was a guy named, I think his name is j. d. Melena if I remember right was the name of the blogger and there's a character in the film. She is kind of a composite of of the various bloggers that covered the Gosnell story. And this trial when the mainstream media largely wanted to ignore it and. There was a guy named JD Mullane who was sending out transcripts of the testimony that were just. I mean, it was a house. Describe guys, this was hell sponsor stuff. I mean, it was just like vile it. It's the kind of stuff. Like if you handed it to a two. Really dark Cora writer Clive Barker or an HP lovecraft they would be like. That's too much for us. You know. Like quite Burkard be like, I really can't see pinhead going that far guys. Okay. And so I started reading these at night. To our audience there on our affiliates across the country, but especially there in Philadelphia and the reaction we got it. First people like they could not believe this was real and it and it was actually going on and we'd get listeners in emails from people right there in Philly, who would then Email us and they were like. Why am I hearing about this? Why isn't this like in the inquirer, not the National Enquirer the Philadelphia Inquirer? Why isn't this the front page story in the newspaper? Why? Why aren't the nightly news crews there? And there's a great scene in this movie, and I am not using great cavalierly some of this movie. And I think because the temptation for us conservatives and or Christians, we make a film that promotes our themes or is overtly religious or faith based. The temptation is to overlook the lack of craftsmanship because we want to be kind of the message. That's one of the reasons why I've always been good buddies with Ted bear movie guide because Ted came from the movie industry. He was very successful movie producer and then he got converted. And so like if you make a bad faith based movie, Ted will say. So like if it's not a good movie like you can't just, you know, slap the pure flix logo on it, and God bless and we appreciate the work they're doing. But if it's it doesn't matter how many peer flicks logos you slap on it. If the movie sucks. Ted, we'll tell you that's not how you that's not a good movie. Okay. Because we actually think we gotta do like, I'm sure when Paul went to like Corinth Ephesus, you think you made crappy tents when he showed up, you know, hey guy. I'm the half ass tent builder here in in Galicia I'm guessing knowing what he was going to be up against. He probably made the best day tense. You probably built the best way to make right Maggie. Tense. The best scene. Jesus was like a carpenter. Knowing what he was about to embark on. Do you think he's like, you know what? Let me build up a reputation for doing really shoddy craftsmanship before I throw my messiah shirt on here in Galilee. You think that's what he did. The cornerstone, the cornerstone, come on, man. Yes, can expect us to buy your recorder stone. I mean, this doesn't fit into the corner. Exactly. Shoddy craftsmanship, you gotta be better than that. All right. So we got there's no excuse when we've got the greatest story ever told. There's no excuse for us not to tell it well, right. So we're big on not just having the right message but telling it well, this movie at times the direction, Nick Searcy is a conservative filmmaker in Hollywood. He's the director of the movie and the direction of this film at times is. Excellent. I mean, the way there there's there's a great scene in a set it up and you even know what's coming, but the way it set up, it's so well done, and this is where the district attorney there in Philadelphia. He's they're all in the black sedan and he's talking to the witnesses and council. It's the first day of live testimony and he's coaching them up. There's gonna be a wave, a mob of media here don't say anything at all. We don't want this to be a case about whether a woman should have a right to choose or abortion is murder. Don't fall for any of the story. And he's like, really, it's really intense the cameras right in his face, and he's really coaching them up, and then they arrive at the courthouse and the open the car door to the black sedan with tinted windows, and they get out and guess what happens. There's nobody there. There's one person with a student for life table over here, and there's one person over here says support a woman's right to choose holding a placard over there, and there's nobody there and they walk into the courtroom and there's nobody there and the way they set it up though, from cinematography standpoint, the way those shots are set up right on the money right on the money, some of the way that the movie is shot when they invade not shouldn't say invade when they have the warrant to go into Gosnell clinic. Into his home the way that those shots are put together. I mean, this is really well done. High quality filmmaking the writing for the most part of voids schmaltz. It gets a little schmaltzy at the end when they get to the trial. And it might just be me because there's cameos in there when the media finally shows up, there's cameos in there and I know several people, I didn't know they had cameos see my buddy Jason Jones. The pro-life activists to does movie to moment which essentially helps get faith-based filmmakers, you know, capital and distribution. They need to get their movies made. And he's one of the reporters that finally shows up and he sitting in the front row and my wife and I are like, that's j.. All right. And so we were just completely it could have if you didn't know who he was, it might not have been kind of like schmo like I'm kind of in kind of smile and talking about it now because it just was such a distraction for us that this is the heated courtroom scene. What's the jury to do? And there's Jason Jones just sitting there. Just totally distracted us. So maybe if you don't know who the guy is, the bushy blond hair and the perpetual tank is Jason lives in Hawaii. So if you don't know who that is, you probably won't pick up on it. You'll probably pick up on the girl next to me, like, isn't that Scottie Hughes? And yes, the female reporter with the cameo next to him is Scotty, freaking Hughes, okay. Yes, you must have been a roller coaster emotions we because we used to go to church with somebody who Scott used to babysit their kids when she was a teenager and I've known I've, I knew Scotty when she was pro Mitch McConnell, and then she became the the tea party darling. Then she became the Trump show now. She's actually she on Russia today. Now, is that right here waiting for her biography? And then she became, yes. So they shot this film awhile ago before, I think before her defrocking and she got sent down to Russia today for broadcasting. They've been trying to get this movie distributors. Remember they had to go fund me problems. And the distribution problems. So my guess is that this most of the principal photography of this film was shot before, because I think if they had like shot this movie in the last six months to year, they probably would have had Scottie Hughes b. the female cameo reporter, you know? And so for my wife and I and we were pleasantly surprised there were a lot of people in in the movie theater at the mall here. And when I say a lot, the republi twenty people in there, which for a one thirty matinee in the middle week. Yeah, for a movie. That's not an event movie, so to speak with a bankable star. That's pretty good agreed, you know? And and so the people around us are probably really annoyed because we were like it's kinda use which Jason. So once we got to the part with immediate shows up in the most tense moment of the trial, we got totally distracted by the fact. We knew who several we know several people that are doing the cameos. All right. So the writing may not have broken down into schmaltz at that point. It just may have broken down into into schmaltz for us because these are. We know well, and but the direction of the movie Knicks direction is really well done. Dean canes performance is really good. The the level of acting he does in the film compared to everybody else. And nobody else is really terrible. But I mean he is he's really good in the movie. Every scene he's in. Are the best things I mean lifts every scene that's in the film. So. You know, I, I don't think it's like as good as. And you know whenever people ask me what your favorite faith based on this is not a faith based film. By the way, this PD thirteen fill. There will be a few four letter words in there. This is more of a theatric version of a law and order episode. And I mean, it is it's pacing his almost exactly like a law and order the way it moves around between back and forth between the trial and the investigation aspect of it. It is very reminiscent of law and order episode of the lot bigger budget. Okay. And I think it was wise for them to take that approach to avoid the sermonizing because you wanna convey, there's there's conveying your message and then there's the ham fisted sermonising and what you're seeing by the way in mainstream Hollywood films is they're making this mistake more and more. We just talked about this yesterday with I the way they blew up their own branding, the they are. They used to be content with entertaining us with their propaganda so we would consume it and now they're getting. So over the top in your face that a lot of movie goers are just like, I, I don't want to be breached at, so I don't care if. Ryan goslings in the movie or I don't care. If Russell Crowe is Noah. And I don't care if Batman Christian bale is Moses. I'm not going because I can see what you're doing. You're propping me your pre European on me and telling me it's raining, right? And so there there's conveying your message without Silla Queen without sermonising and using that story telling divisive law and order episode because the direction keeps things going like this in really the pacing only slows down to the metronome only slows down about right here when we get to the trial. So it was wise to do that to avoid sermonising and you and you get the, you get the point of what is at stake. And there's little subtle things in there that they do fast that are potent. There's a scene where the the initial judge that gives them the the grand jury. Indictment, and subpoena is a judge that is adamant that this will not be a case about a woman's right to choose. She won't. She will not overturn reproductive freedom. And then when Goss Nells attorneys put forth an order demanding that his turtle's be removed from the clinic and cared for because they're an endangered species. The judge happen that happened actually in the trial and the way it's the way and the judge is adamant that she is a staunch defendant of the adherent to the Endangered Species Act and they don't like connected dots for you like the judge. Just five minutes ago, said, I'm fine. We're not giving a case that says, human beings our life, but we are damn well enforced. The endangered species acted defend turtles. Like they don't cross where they re crossed the line of preaching when you connect the dots for the audience where let the audience, the audience will connect the dots for themselves and they and Searcy direction does a really good job with that in this movie. So if you liked the way law and order, does it. You'll like the way this movie does it. They do it with a far bigger budget, dean, Cain is really good in the movie. The direction is really good. The writing, I think, kind of bogged down at the end, but I think maybe that's only because we were distracted by who some of the cameos are. Maybe if you don't know who those people are, it won't won't mean that much to you, but they overall, they did a really good job with it. I thought. I thought fascinating so far that the the major critical theme that I've seen from fans of the movie is that it wasn't dark enough. They don't quite put their finger on it. They don't. They just say it didn't quite go there to the extent that they wished. I don't know what they mean, but having seen it, you know what they mean? Yeah, I know what they mean. I think I think. I think, and this is the question we had with the falem macadear who is one of the co, producers and co writers of the movie who wrote the Gosnell book. And if you were listening to us last week before we crossed over here to the blaze as well is falem talked about how a him and his wife who worked on the original Gosnell book together for rectory. They were at Boertien agnostic. They kind of in general, we're pro choice just because they didn't believe in the government telling, you know an adult what to do with their own body, but they had never really thought deeply about the issue. Never really looked deeply into it and and he told us on the show last week you'll recall, I asked him about this. Are you guys get a go there? And they did, and he said, hey, we go there and in terms of the dialogue, but not in the visual. There are some horrible visuals. But probably not. As gut wrenching if you were, if you were hoping that they went to where Mel Gibson went with a crucifixion, where showed you about a third maybe of what really goes on with the Scourging and crucifixion to truly break the audience. They don't go that far. But the dialogue does make it clear of what was really going on. There does make it clear. They didn't put as much of the of the just. Horrid testimony, and you know my previous book, nefarious plot, Lord, nefarious. Glowingly quotes from the transcript of the Gosnell trial in order to spike the ball in the end zone about what he's done to our culture. They don't put as much of that in there as I thought was going to be in there. But the the part that's the most devastating about the baby that was clearly born alive. Now that Gosnell says, boy, this is a big one. And then he turns right around when he's sitting there, crying full, fully, developed baby boy, and he sits there to a fully developed baby boy in front of his nurses and takes a pair of scissors and snips the back of his neck. You actually see that you don't see the scissors connect with the neck or the baby, but they from the way that the camera angle is presented, but you are well aware of what is happening there with that moment in the film? Yeah. How did that actor to portray Gazal because people know him. He's done like Aflac commercials. Yeah, he's just a commercial. If you if you, you won't really know how we did unless you know if you saw the interviews with Gosnell after the fact for. Example. But if you saw the interviews with gusto after the fact he DALE'S it. I mean the his cavalier demeanor, I mean gusto when was literally while they were going through his home because he he kept trophies and remains at his house. I mean, these are really the market. He's real serial killer. Okay. And when they were going through his home for cash financial records and stuff, he was actually playing classical music on the piano the entire time. And they met, they do end up mentioning that in the closing credits. And so he does a great job of pointing that out. And you know what I should. I want to mention this before we run out of time. You remember Janine Turner? Yes. I really hot Schick on northern exposure, and we were, yeah. She has a small role in this movie. And one of the best scenes in this film. Is. They the prosecution calls her to testify as legitimate abortion, doctor quote, unquote. And they wanna make it clear that they're not trying abortion, but they're just saying the way Gosnell was doing, it was bad. And so she's the Planned Parenthood woman that comes and speaks as the as the subject matter witness, the expert witness for the prosecution, and she talks about how these these practices of snipping the neck and stuff Gaza was doing. They don't do those things, and that's not that's inhumane. And that's not what happens at a real abortion clinic and they. And then the defense attorney for Gosnell gets up and says. Ma'am. How many abortions have you consulted on or personally performed it? She says, over thirty thousand over thirty thousand. She says, and she said, he said you ever had a child when when you he, they she, he makes her describe with with the DA's vacuuming out the body parts. He makes he puts up a sonogram of a fetus and says, when you go in with your forceps to make sure that the baby is dead before you vacuum it out, where do you place the forceps? And he makes her show the jury and you see it on the screen that it's right there at the base of the neck. This is the defendant. The defense attorney is making the fence attorneys, and the defense attorney literally says, what's more you ever had a baby born alive? What did you do? If the and she said, yes, she goes, we give it comfort care, and he says, what is that? We give blankets and stuff, and then we, you know, until it expires. And he says, so you just have it there on the gurney and just let it bleed out, breathe out until it expires isn't what Gaza was doing. Putting it down, isn't that more humane? That that is maybe the best scene I would pay the full price of mission just to see that cross Janine Turner's, facial expressions as she's being cross examined in deconstructed are on point. Now that I think of that might be the single most powerful scene in the film, and it's worth the price of admission just to go see that Chris to go see that where where where the where the defense attorney does a better job, arguing the premise of our argument, then the prosecution against Gosnell was willing to don't. We see that all the time by the way, the left actually does a better job argument's premises than we argue for the premise of our own arguments. Perhaps this is why God is in fact long-suffering because this is how the truth can find. Our to the day show live in the blaze on demand crtv. And we are back with our to here live on the blaze today, on demand at crtv and for those of you that like podcasts maybe can always listen to us. Live watch us live or you don't have to ours every single day to watch the video at crtv. And so every now and then you gotta get this on demand, or maybe you've got friends out there that are looking for something new to to watch or listen to, and you know, hey, how do we give them a sample, what you guys do before we ask them to pony up for a subscription. You a great answer to both of those dilemmas is to subscribe to the archive. The podcast version of this show each and every day I tuned Stitcher, Google play Spotify. All of those platforms are available to you right now. And Furthermore, if you have some time today, if you could not just click subscribe, but leave us a five star review on the podcast platform of your choice, the more of you do that. The more people. Tend to check us out. I mean, I'm a podcast consumer, and so you know what I'm looking for something like, you know, I'm looking for a new football handicapping show when I'm working out for example that I want to listen to and go find out. I don't know who the guy is. Well, how many people like this, because chances are he's got a base of an audience that shows he's got some support some credibility. So I'm more inclined to check out the guy with fifty five star reviews and the guy that has three of them. Right? So that helps us get the word out. We greatly appreciate those of you that already done. So if you have time today to leave, it's one of those reviews. We would greatly appreciate you as well and don't forget. We love to know what you think about what we think Steve Steve day dot com is the Email address. You can like us on Facebook. Follow us on Twitter at Steve dais show. All right. Is time for theology, Thursday, and in keeping with our theme this week, sort of a freshman orientation Steve day show one. Oh one for our new audience at the blaze. That's joining our existing audience at crtv. We're gonna give you. Rundown of of where we believe the culture we're trying to reach is currently at and years ago I created sort of cultural diva Lucien chart. When a culture begins to break down Romans one style, when Paul writes, we exchange the truth for a lie. I think the articles that it uses their, you know, like a and member your grammar class. In the fifth grade, the articles us there I think are fascinating when he says they have exchanged the though would be an article that indicates singularity right specificity. Singleness, uniqueness, Paul writes, they have exchanged the truth for a why? Not your truth, right? There's no such thing as your true, you have no truth to tell. You may have the truth to tell, but your truth, nobody cares. Well, unfortunately way too many people care. Nobody should. There is no your truth. There is truth and maybe the truth of what happened to you or what you experienced, but that doesn't make a your truth that makes it the truth that you tell. So there's the truth, Paul writes, and then he says, ally, hey, can mean plethora eight signifies multiplicity. So there's a lot of lies out there. And then there's the truth. The sea of lies that we are swimming in in our culture today. That's a focus on here for worldview for for the Thursday, and we're look at the seven deadly worldviews. These are the world views that right now are most competing for the hearts and minds of the American people according to how we surveyed the landscape and and they and they break a culture down in the order. We're going to discuss on purpose because they have to set you up for the next scam. This isn't an isolated random set of occurrences. The devil is very good at what he does, and I'm not using that word cavalierly. And with the devil does basically, you know, Solomon writes, there's nothing new under the sun and then to which just add, there's just new people under the sun that haven't fallen for it yet. Haven't heard about it yet. The devil just does his greatest hits. He's kind of rewrites. You know, he knows there's a reason why even though the great Glenn fry has passed on, there's a reason why we keep going to eagles concerts because the music is still great. What's the point of being a putting out original stuff if they all these keep crushing? Yes. And you know, you've got to hear desperado and held hotel California and already gone, you know, and and Don Henley knows that the new stuff he's doing when he ought to be getting fitted for a rocking chair Mace. All right, but he also knows that even if he throws in some of his solo Steffi love, he knows like, hey, when they don't want to hear the new stuff, just run dirty laundry. Adam in the crowds totally back into it. And Joe Walsh, you know his, he was never a great vocalist. But now vocals are like totally shot now, but he knows he knows if he just bust out some. Rocky Mountain way like he could just sit there and miss nine courts because it's reflexes aren't what they were in nineteen seventy eight. But he knows if he does this. He knows if that opening riff of Rocky Mountain way kicks in the cougar crowds. Gonna forget all the time. He's messed up in board them in the last twenty minutes and they're just all in. Reminds me of what Trump said during the primary in two thousand sixteen I dunno, I just ramble on at these rallies and then sooner or later we're going to build a wall and everybody's board. And then when I say we're going to build a wall, the crowds like remember when he did that, that's what we're talking about. Okay. And the enemy when it comes to cultural evolution is really good at this. He doesn't have like he doesn't have like a a Abella check in playbook, like you go to the New England, Patriots. Hey, here, here's your playbook and you're like, I gotta do strengthen conditioning just to carry this thing around right then Bill and we need you to learn that in a week, right? The enemy understands keep it simple stupid. It's really not forty chess. No, it is not. And he knows he's got. He's got a, he's got a track list. He's got a mix tape, right? He's got a song list on your Amazon, and he knows there's five or six that he just hit. Okay. And he knows the siren song we will respond to. Okay. And so this diva Lucien chart has worked all throughout human history because there's nothing new under the sun all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. All right. And so we fall for these things and here's, but here's the most difficult truth we fall for them. Because we want to. We fall for them because we want to. That's why. You slept with that woman at the office that it's not your wife and blew up your family because you wanted to if you didn't wanna sleep with their guests, which you probably wouldn't done dot sleep with events. Yeah, that's why did you you you let that dude without a job in his mom's basement downing? You know, code red and you let him impregnate ya. When everybody told you he's a loser, don't date them. You let them become your baby. Daddy. Why did you let them do that? Why'd you let them do anything you wanted to you wanted to? That's why did because you wanted to you did that, but you didn't go smoke crack because you don't wanna do it smoke. That's he didn't do it. On the other hand, you went and smoked crack, but you didn't let that dude loser in his mom's basement because you're become your baby, daddy. In this case, did you want to? I don't wanna play this game anymore. It makes me sad to a half hour later. It's as a as a Catholic in good standing when Todd's favorite New Testament books would be James and James very clear that we only succumb to the temptation that we want, right? I'm not tempted by things. I don't like because now stay with me with is going to be really technical psychoanalysis here, deep probing, young psychiatry, forty chest. Yeah, this is forty chest right here. You're not tempted by the things you don't want because wait for it. You don't want them. I'm done guys. Lucky to have us play his. That's right to have you say. The best in the league for nothing. Latin, yes. In Latin Aramaic. How about pig? Latin k, it's nee on the do they. 'cause you want that. That's why. Okay, we do that. We do the bad stuff we do because we want that best next book title. For sure. He's not a close second. Yes, we do the bad stuff we want to do because we want it and we don't do the best stuff we don't want because we don't want it. That's that's it. All right. And so the reason why these messages appeal to us, some of you that are old timers, you like hot, damn, man. I I remember when we were, you know, beating the pinko commies back in east Europe and and Reagan was dropping, you know, threaten to drop 'em x missiles on them. And even Jimmy Carter was pulling out of Moscow Olympics, and now my kids come home from university and then like, hey, what do you think about shared wealth? And you're like, didn't we win these arguments? Well, maybe. But again, new generation enemy, bust out his greatest hits track and the silence songs begin all over again. Nothing new under the sun. It's just the enemy playing his greatest hits for a new audience who thinks this is the freshest dope rhymes they've ever heard. That's all this. Every era of human history until Jesus returns. That's what history is by there. That's why that dad should've said. You know what? If I was sharing my wealth, I wouldn't have enough money to send you tonight. Crappy university. That's right. That's where the dad's like the dead oughta be asking him. Why am I sending you to this crappy universe aid? That's daddy ought to be asked him to be asking it said it said, dad, Rippin the university dad ought to be like, why the hell it? I work thirty five damn years to send my kid to a university to believe a bunch of stuff that is is a is a line of bull. Why am I? Why am I going? What am I taking out a second mortgage to subsidize this? That's the question. Daddy ought to be asked him. Can I get an Amen on that? It is actually one of the fundamental questions of our times quite frankly. All right. So what are these worldviews? They break culture down in the order we are about to discuss them. These are the seven deadly worldviews that are the most in competition for the American heart and mine. And as we speak and they begin with this very first one Nostitz decision from the Greek word, no SIS or knowledge. It is the belief that the revealed truth in God's word are not sufficient either for salvation, justification or existence. Therefore, either there is knowledge that God has arbitrarily hidden from us that we are entitled to, or he only reveals this knowledge to special people so that they can truly know him and his ways. Now what we're saying here. Is not that the bible is the only source of knowledge. Can I learn how to become a cardiovascular surgeon by studying the scriptures? Gentlemen? Can I learn that? No, no, I can't because it's that's not it's point or its primary purpose. There are absolutely great sources of knowledge and truth. Not including the scriptures, but there needs to be an ultimate truth, the needs to be an ultimate standard so that when your cardiovascular surgeon who taught you, what the four chambers of the heart worm with the key arteries were and and and and you know, when to do a bypass and win, nod and win to fix valve and win, not comes back to you one day and says, you know, I kind of think I can self identify as a woman now and you're like, dude, you have a penis and your chromosomes haven't changed. Okay. You need to know win. Did he when did he abandoned science for SaaS, right. Okay. So what he's accepting the truth of human physiology as it was made by the creator in order to heal people. He is practicing science when he is determining what. Maybe I'll change that physiology to be what I want it to be. He's doing science because that same cardiovascular surgeon who may now decide that he can transition gender, I guarantee if you walked into the OR and you were as head nurse and you said, you know. You know, John or gen, whatever your name is now, I kind of think this order is transitioning into Medusa omlund Ghada that's kind of I think it's kind of identifying as a model avocado now as not an anymore. Good luck with probably gonna fire your ass and realize that you're gonna cost them a lot of money in in liability insurance. Right? It's funny how that works. Isn't it funny how that works? Suddenly, the guy, you know what you those of you that don't wanna believe in absolute truth. I promise you when you're on a gurney with your chest open or your your scalp exposed, you probably want some absolute truth about right then. Right. Are you saying that Harris's aren't internally consistent Steve? You're saying? Yes, yeah, yeah, because the guy who's usually responsible for those harasses names the devil, he hates you and wants to destroy you, and that's, that's why he teaches them to you. So you will destroy yourself with them and then he will laugh and get pleasure out of it. Yeah, good to know. And he is he is responsible for this very first deadly worldview shows up human human human kind is in a paradise. Adam and eve are in a paradise and the enemy slithering like a serpent shows up and he asks one simple question, but it's not really simple. He asked this question, did God really say. Did God really say. And the location of that question is, you know, are you sure that's what he said. And maybe the reason he said it is because he doesn't have your best interest at heart. Maybe trying to hold you back, maybe trying to deny who you can truly be. Maybe it doesn't want any competition. Maybe he doesn't want what's best for you. Oh, I know he made you from the dust of the earth and literally out of nothing gave you total vicar like control in dominion over his creation and his first commandment to you was go have a lot of sex. But I think when you stop and think about it, those are clear signs that he's holding back on. Yeah, and he's, he's got it in for you. He gave you almost total control in power and said, go get busy a lot. But I think when you really stop and think that's totally co for. Does it sound when you laid out like that? Just a little bit. Did I not accurately in my own way. Did I not accurately describe that chain of. Not when you when you take it outside of the temple moment and just put it in this Petri dish over here and remove all the emotion. This sounds like what a bunch of dumb asses, right? That's why you can't what's so great about this is starting with NASA. You cannot take on the truth head on out of the gate because it's it's so obvious what it is when you take it on head on, you couldn't take that, but you get around the edges. I've had to nine out of the gate hit that there's no truth, but maybe we need to reframe a little bit. We need to consider that conversation. We're doing your generation loves those right here. We just have this conversation. We're doing on the sharing ball. Let's see what you think. Did you beat your wife last night, Br Kevin, gang rapist. I mean, we're just asking questions. This isn't a character assassination. We're just asking questions. Do we gang rapist in the summer of eighty one. Just just wondering. Just wondering, you know. So once the problem with this is. The way we often respond to this challenge. Okay. Our nature tends to respond to air with air. And so when we fall for this initial, this is the Genesis of lies. The God is holding out on you and has chosen special people. He loves more than you to give more have himself and his love and his Karen, his truth to. When. When you which funny when you look at the scriptures, when God calls a profit. It is not because the prophet has special knowledge unless they're given foresight, but even when the prophet is given foresight, sometimes profits are just called to tell the truth. Sometimes they're giving foresight, but the point of the prophet giving given whether it's if the profit is not given foresight and it's just called to essentially like Jona called innovator repent. God is saying, I want you to return to my truth, and so I'm not sending this wizard. I've been some that sending Gandalf. No, I'm sending. I want you to come back to what I have state reserved in saved for you. I want you to come back to the special things that I've made and done for you. That's the point of sending you this profit. And then if you're given, if the profit is given the gift of foresight that again is to the point of calling God's people back to community with him, not to exclude. You'd certain people from others may even through the Old Testament, even at the points where the Israelites were at their most nationalistic fervor, God is talking about future mercy on pagan peoples, and and that his house will be a house of prayer all nations. So the point of even God gifting people with with, I wouldn't even call it special knowledge. Maybe advanced knowledge is to is, is for them to share it and not hornet with some exclusive community that if you do these rituals and these rights and you say these magic mantras and phrases you're in the lucky spirituality occult club, it's to bring more people to him. You said yesterday got his relationship. Yes. They meant thank God. Otherwise, the version of God we would have is one that looks far closer to his Lomb or no God at all. God is ultimately heavy. He he, he is the big tent. And it's the reason why the whole progressive lie of the big tent is been so effective because it isn't perversion of the truth. All all all of Satan's game ultimately is a perversion of the truth. All creation was good. Satan only starts picking a bit just like everything is, is some riff in we're going to get is some riff on, did he really say that's why I won one out of the gate just just some gigantic middle finger to the truth. And I got this one hundred eighty degrees. This way. It's never that ever and you see a lot of really trendy trendy Christians as well. Non-citizen crops up. I think in a lot of the other world uses well, this is I mean, there's a reason why this is this is the basis of it, but you hear you hear NAS to schism allot. When when you hear people say I'm a Christian, but one of those Christians a conservative. I'm not one of those conservatives as if you have some sort of idea what truly makes what truly makes you a real Christian or a real conservative. You have that special knowledge. You out there you out there in the cheap seats do not that present. It's presented self everywhere, but that's one example as you guys were talking that that came to my mind. It reminds me of the we've talked about this before the exchange late atheist. Christopher Hitchens had with one of the sort of progressive Christians. Aaron was just was just discussing and at the end of his life Hitchens did a series of debates with Doug Wilson past route in Moscow Idaho. I just spoke it Doug youth conference this summer and. And they essentially they did these written debates and Christianity today, and they did some. I think they did some events as well around the country and in response to these back and forth this progressive woman identifying a Christian sent Christopher Hitchens, late atheist note saying, I agree, I don't have to believe in a virgin birth, and all these and a resurrection to be a Christian or that the bible is God's word and Hitchens wrote back to her. He said, ma'am, might I suggest that if you don't believe the bible is the word of God that Jesus Christ was was dead buried and physically resurrected on the third day and that he was born of a virgin so that he would not be tainted with the sin that stains all of mankind. You may be a lot of things out of it, but a Christian would not be one of them, hey, man, this is why it's so important scripture when Saint Paul in his letters and he always introduces health as a slave to Jesus Christ. He's making this point. This is not the church of Paul and when he points out. To forgive me in that argument. You know, you guys keep saying you're Christians of Apollo's. He's making that point yet again, some of you say you're with Peter. Some of you say you're with me with Paulo. There's one Lord, one baptism, one church. That's what he says in response. So when we are confronted with error, here's the problem. We have a tendency to respond. With more air. All right. It's this leads us to the second world view that is deadly in our culture today. And this is the world view of legalism a religious system that puts more emphasis on a works based righteousness in the saving grace of Jesus Christ, which may also include the elevations of human traditions as evidence of a person's level of holiness or moral purity. So if we go back to the garden, now the enemy has shown up and eve is there. Being tempted by the way, what's her husband who is to be her protector and defender? What is he doing while this is going down? Not a damn thing is answer nothing. He's doing nothing so ladies. You wanna know why your man his initial inclination when confronted with moral certainty in the call to conviction to act so often is an initial passivity. This is why we're sons of Adam and daughters of eve as Lewis would put it in the chronicles of narnia. And so how does he respond? Well, did God really say this eve responds with an air? She responds with God said not to touch the fruit that is that what got no got said, if you eat this fruit, okay, then you will surely die. We're touch was never put in there. She responds with her spin on events. Her turn of events. And then what happens is Adam ends up instead of jumping in front as the head to defend his wife from calamity. He ends up taking part. And then later when God confronts them. After succumbing to his own self righteous standard rather than defending God's standard at and then turns around and says, well, this is your phone. Means the woman you gave me this plays out in our news media all the time. I've been on news media panels where I've literally said to the cable news. Do you want God to be in control or not choose? Because I mean, all I hear you guys sale the time is you want to behave the way you want to behave, not the way God calls us to behave. And then when God let you behave the way you want to be, then you wanna blame him for the consequences. You can't have it both ways. Choose one, do you? Do you want God? Because if you want God to be, if you want to be to blame than I, you have to give God control. I have to admit that God's God and we're not, God can only be accountable if he is got. So if he is God and he said, do this, don't do that. Do this. Don't do that and you and you don't do those things. Why is it his fault then? Why isn't it yours. Well, because again, we're daughters of and sons of Adam, and this is where you have to know what goes in your open hand, and what goes in your closed hand. Open and closed down. I did it wrong. Okay. In your clothes hand needs to be your convictions. These are the things that you know one day you're gonna stand before your creator and have to answer for. And you better be right about these things and you cannot bend on these things. You don't bend on these things even for the people you love. Because ultimately, when you stand given account for your life one day, it will not be too, or with the people you love. It'll be you alone with your creator, the most powerful being in the universe. And it'll be just you. Period. And in this closed hand of convictions, there shouldn't be a lot. The should be some, but but not the seventy six things in ear guys or pardon the pun shouldn't be ninety five season here. Right? There should be like five, six, seven eight when God introduced himself formulated humanity, when he introduces his his, his brand formerly to identity brand formerly humanity. He gives us ten statements guys. The great joke about seminaries define God to give three examples God to find himself, and he gave ten examples. Okay. So got thought he could define himself with ten examples. You don't need we. It's the joke. David Barton makes about how many more laws are on in the US code compared to vase that God gave to the Jews as like six hundred eighteen laws were given to the Jews right or something like that. Yeah, and there's like six hundred thousand laws in the US code. If God can define himself and his ethics in his brand in ten commandments, you don't need fifteen or sixteen things in here. Just throw that out there as a possibility. You're not more complex than God. You're not more nuanced than God, you're not smarter than God. All right. So because the more things you put in here, the more likely is your legalist. Actually over my shoulder, the more likely this year legal est and it's more about which you think, no, let me tell you what legalism is not legalism is not. I really want to follow what the word of God says, because we're doing that a lot in the in the church nowadays, like all say, well, what you're suggesting is actually not what the bible says the bible. Oh, your hair illegal. The Babylon be nailed this said Jesus cited as not very Christian essentially for the wages of sin is death, legalism. Yes, you know, when Jesus confronted the Pharisees about their legalism, he didn't say there's zeal to obey the law was bad. He said, hey, you guys tied then every ounce of of spice. That's great. You have a desire to follow the letter, the law, but if you're doing it at the expense of the spirit of the law, which is mercy and sacrifice, you should have done the former with the latter. He doesn't tell them to stop following the belong. He says the following in its proper context, if you follow it out of sight of God's context and your follow in your own and you're guilty of self righteousness. I get called self righteous all the time by quoting the scriptures. Now my my, my, my interpretation of the bible can be wrong. But if I'm using something other than myself to base, what I think is right and wrong on, guess what? I cannot be self self righteous. If I'm using something other than myself to determine what's right and wrong, I might be right, I might be wrong, but you know what? I cannot be by definition self righteous. Those of you that are determining this by your own opinions. You're the ones. So. Let's get back here to seven deadly world us here live on the place and on demand on crtv. It's the Thursday here on the Steve day show. So we talked about step one is NAS Tisza more. It's essentially the. The idea that God isn't God, but we are or if he is God, he doesn't deserve to be because he's not fair as holding out on us and gave us a really raw deal. He created us in his image gave us almost total complete control of his creation. And then his first command edict was to go have a lot of sex. But yes, patriarchy oppressive tyranny. Yes. And then the second step is we respond to error with our own interpretation, our own spin on events. This is legalism in the idea that we create a self righteousness, our own code of ethics. That we will enforce mercilessly rather than repented. Admit were wrong except the grace of God when it's offered to us. So. This creates our next opening for our next deadly worldview. And this is the world view of dualist them. Now, what is due Eliza do Eliza is the belief that evil and good are essentially two sides of the same coin. They've got equal preeminence, and therefore it's up to the human being to choose which one to align himself with. Do Eliza views the supernatural and natural world as one often existing in a circle or sphere called existence. Therefore, there are cult aspects of dual ISM that believe these co equal forces can be manipulated by human beings. You see these, this is this is the most the most popular religious view in in in some of America's most preeminent pop culture, Star Wars. The force the force ended of itself is not moral. It's transcendent, but it lacks moral clarity. It has white and dark, and it can be used in wielded and you know the prophecy of Antic and bringing. Balance to the force while at the time mannequin was was coming of age, the jet. I were in control and he brought balance to the force by destroying the jet. I, including all of the young links. He did bring to the force. The prophecy proved to be true. It was just he was really bad, then return to the and it can brings balance to the force again. All right. And he ends up casting the emperor into the abyss when he was primarily responsible for the emperor's rise to power in the first place. So the force the God like entity of the Star Wars universe doesn't really have a morality. It just exists and human beings decide how they're going to use it for good or for evil. Harry Potter, Aaron. This is your. This is a big, Harry Potter fans at our house too. But this is your Star Wars. Right? All right. And so Harry, this is preeminent throughout Harry Potter. All right. You have those who follow the one who shall not be named Lord voldemort. Okay. And then you have those who are in the Dumbo. Door can't that went to Hogwarts and you know, and and learn the proper way to use mat, which craft and wizardry of again, the light and the dark. These are themes and forms of do Eliza the old George Burns show, oh God, you devil or the commercial where the devils on one shoulder in the angels on the other and they're competing for you. God is God. There is no other. There is no one that can hang his jockstrap, let alone compete with him. The oldest written book of the bible according to most records is job. And how does Joe begin begins with the devil needing permission of God to tent job. There is, there is God and there is no other. He is holy and said, apart from us, there needs to be something because we live here in a fallen world because we have all sin, something must bridge this gap between him and us. We are incapable of bridging the gap ourselves. We tried it at Babbel and we saw how that turned out. And we've been trying on our. Own self righteously ever since before. Finally, and we're going to celebrate this event hearing about sixty nine days. Finally, when we couldn't get to heaven, heaven came down and made a way for us. It built the bridge to us through God's son Jesus Christ. That's what we celebrate at Christmas. That's why the chorus sings Hala Leah, hark the herald angels, sing glory to the newborn king peace on earth, goodwill toward men. You know God and sinners reconciled. Who did the reconciling is it centers and God reconciled or God centers reconciled? What's the first word there got? He had to reconcile us. We couldn't get to him. He had to come to us. Do Eliza just reject everything. I just said. Dulas rejects everything. I just said, now it does make for some very cool story tropes the light and the dark and those sorts of things. We don't deny that we're just telling you though, it's a false religious view. Your thoughts on dulas gentleman. I was going to comment on that. I mean, obviously there is a devil, so there's dark, but. It's Christian theology does not operate like a physics equation. That's what you're saying. Ultimately about the forest. This doesn't exist. I'm saying that it that it couldn't hold couldn't tug on Superman's Cape. That's what I'm saying. Yeah, this is why we as Christians as dark as things get this week, we can say the game is already one. Alternate victory is at hand in Indu Elisa. Well, teeter totters windows or and it goes up and down, right? Create a proper Christian understanding of the presence of evil in the world understands that we're really not so much at war with evil as much as we are the. We are the police action. We're the mop up action that goes in house to house door to door to do the last vestiges before the war is one because the neutron bomb was dropped at Calvary at the cross. That's where the that's where the war was one. It's not over, but it was one meaning are still vestiges and hideouts. There are still enclaves outpost that need to be cleaned out. Okay. But the war was all ready won. The war is not over, but it's already one. That's the tension of transcendence. God is imminent, but he's also he's also above us at the same exact time. That's the tension that the Christian worldview creates dual isn't rejects any of that whatsoever. And so what what would it when a Christian we have as much evil in this world as we are willing to tolerate. If God is sovereign and is a Christian, if you believe that you do believe that if you have a Judeo Christian worldview, believe that. So if God is sovereign and there is evil in the world, and really what that means, there's as much evil in this world as we are willing to all right. We do Eliza says, is that evil? Good. All of it's in a, it's it's, you know, it's a. What is which is brew, you know, and they all exist in this circle of life Elton, John. That's what do alyssum says. So I, we reject God is the ultimate source of truth. Then we elevate ourselves to a co equal if not superior source of truth or legalism. And then we say that essentially, evil is every bit as powerful as good. So now we're diminishing the power and sovereignty of God. To the point then now we're going to kind of reject the sovereignty of God whatsoever. And that's the next deadly world we're going to talk about. Now that is the worldview of Darwinism. The belief that the universe is the result of random chance occurring completely in the natural world and not the purposeful plan of creative in sovereign God, that humanity is a mere byproduct of this methodical evolution of natural substances and it's not the imago day the image of God that this materialistic world view. This notifies biblical doctrines like original sin, salvation, miracles, and instead sees the human condition as a result of simple natural selection. Therefore, humanity as species progressively evolves physically, mentally, morally, and relational. See Blaise PASCAL was right. We all have a God shaped hole in the heart, but what we decide we're kicked God out of that whole, the whole remains something transcendent has to fill it. We need a creation. Myth, we, we need something that tells us why we're here. We create it because even if we deny, we are the imago day. We are still the Mago day. You may deny your mail, but you're still one doesn't change how many times you tonight. How vehemently tonight you may deny your made in the image of God, but you still are. And so that craving for transcendence in the heart remains something fills, it Darwinism comes along. That's what it's called in our time. It's this methodology has had different names and other times, but in our time, Darwinism comes along and says. The only transcendence is within you. You won the you one natural selection. So eat drink and be merry for tomorrow we die. Darwinism comes along and gives you permission to do and be what you really want to do and be, which is your own God. And Darwinism gives you the scientific transcended science magic, not science, science, science has magic science. Now fills that hole in your heart and. As daylight. Soul wants wrapped do what you like. That's Darwinism. Does. I also think you compare that to what we just said about the previous in do do Eliza you. We Christians say, you're not basically good, but the best. But ever now oftentimes when you hear about you like, oh, no, this time it's but you but about God's. Got this. There is a beauty beyond compare in store for your entire life here though with Dr and that's where people get all my hand, what it what a Downer. I don't believe in God who what? What does Dr wasn't? Gonna is the tip of the spear now with what's being laid out. You're, you're an accident. This. This is really a nothing burger. There's not. I mean, you might get lucky and win some kind of a lot of rain, but that guy over there. God who I, I don't wanna believe a loving God would send people to help. So I wanna believe in a loving God who told me that I have no purpose for being here. What so ever and everything I do doesn't matter. That's inspiring up with people, right? They're fantastic. So I, this is where it's so important. You know what's? It's so important to be honest out of the outset. Hey, your center because that's the beginning of figuring out how you break the chains, man. The what? What Darwinism is doing. Actually, despite the little trinkets and oftentimes because of the trinkets, the unfettered, whatever. That's the key to putting you in chains forever and ever. So once we have established now that there is no original design or purpose for humankind. So so now we've kicked God out of the human heart. We have replaced it with a new transcendence, which is nothing. We need an ethical system. We need. We need something that still we can't just have chaos. We have to have some ethical system, and this is where the next the next spot on the flow chart of cultural evolution comes from. This is where we go to pragmatism utilitarian ideology that says, only something which works satisfactorily is true and or that the validity of a truth statement, proposition or belief is to be found in the practical consequences of accepting. It. I saw a one of those televangelist TD Jakes on CNN several years ago, and he was asked by the the reporter at why? Why do you believe in Christianity? And he said, I believe in Christianity because it works for me, that's not Christianity. That's utilitarian ethics. You know, I mean, I Bavarian house painter thought gas and six million Jews worked for him. If the standard is or the son of a Bavarian house painter, I should say. So if the standard is what works for you, I can justify just about anything I want, right. No, Christianity isn't true because it works for you. It works for you because it's true and those you may think that's a distinction that a difference. That's a distinction with the biggest difference and the freaking universe didn't didn't. We earlier on the show talk about what worked for Kermit causal. Yes, yeah, yeah. And with the utilitarian says, is the least amount of suffering for the most amount of joy? Well, I don't know. I'm certainly glad I bet you. There's a whole bunch of people that were cast out in India because of the caste system there that for for how many decades were happy that Mother Teresa decided that she was going to reject utilitarian ethics to be the hands and the feet of the gospel to them, and it kind of, you know, conveniently glosses over the whole thing about who. To decide what's good. Oh, yes. And that's seems a little bit problematic. I don't wanna be Johnny Darwinism. I so might makes right. Strong majority. Yeah, the smartest most enlight make all the decisions we since we Darwinism. First natural selection, whoever's prettiest smartest richest most accomplished day, decide who lives and who dies and who'd what is worthy and what is not natural selection. Thirty answered that force to be the sucks to be anybody on this road end of that sticks. Absolutely. It does in America. That's the supreme court right now. It is. Yeah, yeah, absolutely. So now that we have created a completely random, subjective moral standard by which to govern ourselves. When when when we have differences and arguments when people say, well, I like my subjective standard more than yours and we'll why can't mind might make right, make make right over here might make rights. How do we settle these disputes? How, how do moral subjective settle their disputes? While they pretend that they don't exist and gets us to our next spot on the cultural diva Lucien flow. Chart syncretism, the blending of two or more belief systems into an existing system with the intent of creating a new system or it can be a belief system or several belief systems becoming absorbed into another one considered more culturally popular or superior for the purpose of building consensus. Do you want to know who the number one syncretism in the world is right now pope Francis, he's doing this masterfully he'll spend weeks and months promoting progressive ideology, and then right when he's about to lose every totters and in the church hill, then tweet abortion is murder. You'll get one of those. Tell me I'm wrong tot, oh, you'll get one of the had the best abortion anti. Maybe f- I, I mean that recently, but now that you're back on the back on the bad butts set up a good, but before now the bad butts, you get three more weeks about to get rid of the internal combustion engine, virtuous signaling. This is syncretism is what this is, and this is the idea of creating something that is popular and culturally chic and cool that you. Essentially just coexist. Dan, why don't we think about that. Tell you what Jordan is considered the most modern era country in the world and their Queen is what's your name to our whatever she's gorgeous and king of dual seems to be pretty cool to okay and Amman is you know the state of the art jewel of the world. So here we are here here's much middle of broad daylight when a weekday walk down the streets of Amman Jordan, scream out coexist, and we all worship the same. God see what happens. Make sure your life insurance paid up. Find out if you can get kevlar through TSA and ask, ask around about what the second amendment policy is with, I think is self defense in Jordan because you're gonna wanna preemptively. No need to know all three of those things because home eight playing this guy. This is what we're doing nowadays, though. There's a, there's a religion that's that has been has grown some in popularity called behind you guys ever heard of it. And it essentially says everything is true, which means that basically insults everybody, it claims tolerance by insulting everyone. So the Muslim says that Jesus was an even crucified and was the son of Mary, not the son of God. The Christian says, my entire faith is predicated on the fact he was crucified and raised from the dead. But other than that, I think we have a lot in common guys, you, you're not worshiping the same God. Now the Christian Muslim can both be wrong. They can't both be right, both be wrong, but they cannot be right when one person's religion is centered on who Jesus Christ is, and the other person's religion is primarily centered on rejecting Jesus. Christ is not when the moors conquered Jerusalem during the crusades, and they built the dome of the rock over the Temple Mount. They carved words into you won't be able to see them because you're an infidelity can walk in there and look, but they carved something into the ceiling on the inside of the of of the dome of the rock. Do you know what the words are? An Arabic. God has no son. Those were the words carved. God has no son. But you're right, we're all worshiping the same God. Here we're not. Now we don't have to worship the same God to share a planet, but it makes it much harder to share a planet. If we don't acknowledge the truths that you know the planet ultimately that that we differ on, we can't find common ground if we don't admit where we actually disagree. Okay. But the point of all of these is to set the stage for the final stage. And I think we're in the syncretism world. Now we are going into the final stage of cultural diva Lucien which is secular humanism and. You can just basically choose and do whatever you want that that's kind of the short version. And here's the problem of secular humanism, though. It never lasts. It really just sets the stage for what the next transcendent worldview that will take over a culture will become. And in Europe, you've seen this. Europe has gone through western Europe has gone through this entire seven-stage process there. We're about a quarter of a century behind them. We're going into the secular humanistic stage. They're coming out of it and you're looking if you look across Europe, do you see what world is replacing secular, humanism, Islam, Islam, the next transcendent world view.

A call to govern media giants like Netflix, Amazon Prime

"This is a CBC podcast Hello Jamie Puzzle So I don't need to tell you that the way that we watch television has changed a lot. What in the last decade we now have apple net flicks crave but the thing is the rules that govern traditional broadcasting while they haven't changed I at all in a very long time and how to modernize them an preserve Canadian culture has been the subject of a lot of talk including sitting on this podcast but late last week? We got some tangible recommendations on how to do that. In the form of a government commissioned report our report is a roadmap for addressing the challenges of today while remaining flexible enough to anticipate and adapt to the unforeseen changes and challenges of the future taken together. They would represent huge changes to Canada's broadcasting and telecommunications sector from bringing online media platforms like Yahoo Msn the news and facebook under the scope of Canada's Broadcasting Act to making sure that streaming companies like Netflix Amazon prime are sufficiently promoting Canadian material. This marks the first time these decades old laws have been reviewed in such a comprehensive and integrated manner. There are a whopping ninety seven recommendations in this report. But don't worry only talk about some of the most interesting ones to this is front burner okay with me today is glasner entertainment reporter and film critic with the CBC ally is a pleasure to have you. Thanks how did you back. This is the first time that I get to talk to you time. You're here. I think someone else was hosting. Yes Matt Yeah. We've got to superheroes not Braga. Oh I'm so now we get to talk much more earthshaking. A regular regulation of the Internet and Canadian Broadcasting Ninety seven recommendations five pages of uh-huh Eurocratic me all right. Let's start with the big picture here and then we'll narrow it down to some of the specifics. What is this report are about? We are pleased to submit to government our final report and recommendations for updating candidates communications laws and regulatory framework work. I think essentially the report is about updating the Broadcasting Act We are talking about rules that govern how you insert Canadian content. WHO WHO GETS TO RUN which stations all of that good stuff and it was written in one thousand nine hundred ninety one? That is before netscape not even like before. Google news for netscape before. Dial up modem so you think of how intrinsic the Internet is now and how much of our experience spirit of the outside world and how much of what we watch and how we learn of news and our favorite programs all comes through data and will the report report. The Original Broadcasting Act doesn't speak to that necessarily and so there has been the struggle of do you bring the internet under the domain of the CRTV see and so a lot of things have been changing the content creation rules and structures and funding bodies. Haven't really been necessarily keeping up with the Times is because the way people watch stuff is changing and AD. Revenues are falling so this is an incredibly ambitious report trying to bring all of that into twenty twenty twenty okay. So let's try and pick apart some of this report but first who produced it just that people have a sense of so an independent panel of experts with experience in broadcasting and telecommunications of my name is Janet Yale and I am chair of the broadcasting and telecommunications mutations legislative review panel so these are people who know those fields have been part of those fields and certainly no how legislation and is written and the INS and outs of broadcasting regulations. And over the last couple of years. They've been getting all of this feedback right from stakeholders across the country who They heard from two thousand people either in person or People wrote in submissions. They were hearings all across the country. It took eighteen months. And so they they they did a lot of work and it was based on other reports. The CIT also did an examination on the challenges challenges that that regulator is facing. So there's been a lot of work done to get us to where we are now. Okay and we're not going to go over the ninety seven recommendations mutation that was a joke But some of them some of them are very controversial like getting the Internet to more rural areas with greater speed. A lot of people kind of agree about note that But let's start with this broad idea that the CRTV which regulates broadcasting in Canada has regulated traditional broadcasters. Astor is like bell and Rogers This idea that they should essentially start regulating a whole bunch of online platforms to an. Eli Explain to me. What is being proposed here in this report? There are a bunch of categories curation aggregation and sharing it is a new system of regulation that would now bring your Amazon is on Primes your net flicks any foreign media streaming service under the control of the CRT and so there are these new tiers of regulation. And I will go through them so i. The top tier is media curator's and so they defined this as a service provider that has editorial to`real control so they're sharing stuff but also stuff that they make their own certainly net flicks qualifies under that and as examples they Amazon prime crave and net flakes. And so they would be certainly regulated. They would be licensed and they would have to take a portion of their budget and spend that on the creation of Canadian in content then we have the aggregate irs and so this includes your cable companies which are taking American content and then sharing it in Canada also services like Komo News and Yahoo News and they would be given a Levy and so they would have to wait a portion of what they're earning again back into Canadian content funds and finally. We have the sharers. Your Youtube your facebook. Where they are their services are basically based on a mixture of Professional Copyright content media content and amateur content of course they too would have some kind of Levy called attacks and have to pay into those Canadian gene content funds. Okay so this is essentially all about trying to bolster Canadian content and yeah the system that we have right now in a big part of it is money that comes from your cable companies etc And just the way we watch. TV is changing and so the whole system that set up to encourage the creation of Canadian content and the very revenue stream will that's declining and yet you see more. And more of us are subscribing to services net flicks thanks excitability on broadcast regulations. And so this is an attempt to address that. And also I I think Find a new more consistent stable and modern revenue stream to ensure that there is a place to find Canadian content. Okay Okay so look. There are some people who think this is a bad idea right to regulate these big internet giants. We've talked about this concept on the show before and in including John Family Culture critic and I phoned him up earlier today and I want to play you a clip okay. Netflix has already producing Canadian. Content it has already exceeded its commitment to produce five hundred million dollars worth it or invest five hundred million dollars dictating content over five years and I think that this is. It's all coming at a time when Canadian content has never had a greater value in the marketplace the rate of production has increased something like six percent in two thousand nineteen alone when we read all these articles about Canadian content is having a moment. So what's the problem. I mean you know I. This is what I don't understand. It's like it's like if I owned a store and you came to my store all the time and you were a great customer at my store and then all of a sudden I said I know how to keep Jamie. Spending money at my store is by locking. The door are behind her when she comes in. It just creates this sort of weird attitude that I think will scare off foreign investment instead of encouraging it. But what do you make of that argument so I. I love John but I'm going to argue with his analogy. We're not locking people in. I think the system we have right now is that you're encouraging store owners to have have a place or even investigate the idea of certain Canadian choices right and yet. We're there's some wonderful. Oh Canadian success stories right now but many of them. Your Shits Creeks Year Kim's convenience the global success around the world much of a due to being on Netflix your letterkenny excetera. They were begun because in part of the system that we had that said yes you have to try and find new Canadian dramas and comedies to put on air to satisfy the regulatory burden making Canadian Ian Stories making popular Canadian shows is hard. It's really hard and there. Aren't that many successes. And I think if you took off All all the things that compel broadcasters try a lot of other ways to create content or just simply by content that would fill those slots. Let's stick for a little bit longer with some of these specific recommendations so netflix argument the Apple. TV argument another argument against this is that that this is going to cost me more money. We've talked about this on the show before did the authors of the report respond to this. And we do not think that this is something that would be passed on to consumers or result in higher prices. The argument is that if Netflix has to pay into this pot to create more Canadian content. They're we're just gonNA pass this cost onto me. May I read from the report. Yes we are going to read the report. He wanted to be clear that we are not recommending. That Canadian content be supported by the so-called net flicks tax charging consumers and extra levy on subscriptions to such services such as Netflix. It is more appropriate to establish a regime that requires online online streaming services that benefit from operating candidate to invest in Canadian programming. That they believe will attract an appeal to Canadian so that is their way of saying. Don't call the net flicks tax. It's our way of encouraging streaming services media curator's to invest in Canadian programming. Okay and hopefully that can even program would be stuff that their customers want to watch. So then it's win for everyone to them. According to that is their a defense. I think people will want to watch all of this Canadian content. You're going to lean gonNA make stuff that people would want to watch so then therefore You're making a successful successful program. And so why would you then want to pass. That cost onto Adams. Now I want to loop back back to something. You mentioned earlier how difficult it is to define who is a content creator. I feel like I'm like a social media. Influence are saying oh he's worth who's a content creator who is an aggregate or And there are people who were very worried in the wake of this report that it would also include news organizations in part because it seems to recommend that Mr Speaker yesterday. A government-appointed panel enthusiastically recommended that the government should control what news coverage Canadian should should be allowed to see under this liberal. Talk to me about this. Yeah I mean under the original language of the report it would seem to me everyone from Breitbart to See TV news. I mean the language is a service provider that has editorial content. So if you're a new site and you create create you're on a royal content will then you're media curator so you are going to be licensed you're going to be under the control or under the The provisions of of the CRT see. But I think more onerous for a lot of people across Canada were when they heard this is okay. Wait your licensing new sites and this. It's now falls under governmental control and this created quite the conversation from many people Such as Michael Guys. I mean anytime you talking about. Internet regulation Michael. Geist has something to say. He's the University of Ottawa law professor. And he's the candidate share Internet and e commerce law the notion that we would leave achieved the CRTV to a government regulator the power to dictate. What a trustworthy news site is to require that websites news Agra gators gators display those sites prominently how they linked to them strikes me as really fundamentally wrong in an open democratic society? I think it's can minister. The heritage appeared in parliament to clarify some earlier comments. Let me be clear. Our government has no intention Shen to impose licensing requirements on news organizations. Nor will we try to regulate news content at and seems to now say eight. Although I mentioned the language of the report originally that there is now an exemption and so new sites will not fall under the regulation or the license of this new structure like essentially a walk back from what the report is currently recommending we. We're not proposing to regulate relate the internet and we are not proposing to regulate news content on the Internet. I think you've misunderstood our recommendations if that's what you think So on on this topic of news that we should see what you're going to our own employer this complicated which is a little bit awkward for us to talk about votes Shit acknowledged we both work at the CBC. But let's Your best here to try and navigate all the different perspectives here. The report port is also recommending and add free. CBC We also feel that the need for advertising revenues in the commercial imperative that goes with that takes away from their public trust mandate so this is sort of protected to the idea of preserving Canadian culture and quality. do so everything that we've been talking talking about. And let's talk about why the authors of the reporter recommending now it seems to be another bowl work in Giving Canadians high quality Journalism that they can trust and there are other methods in the report in terms of more funding for new sources and like already we have newspapers. I'm getting support. And they're gonNA actually broaden that to audiovisual sources but CBC in particular they see as a great source of that but they want more and so the report talks about Reflecting Canadian stories reflecting regional stories reflecting local stories reflecting indigenous stories and indigenous cultures and languages And I think there is according to the authors of the report Their perspective respective is that because we are partially commercially driven that is affecting the CBC's willingness to be bold and take risks to our and so they see by unlinking us from advertising revenue. And by making this a fully funded publicly funded corporation and actually the budget would be a five year cycle. Oh so the government says. Here's your budget for five years. That way I guess there's less political interference and we have all the money we need to do what we can do. And then we don't have to worry necessarily but ratings but we can just do our best job as a news service and so they safe ad free within five five years beginning with the new service and that would be That would be a very dramatic shift. What is the argument for having ads on the CBC well first of all talk to people and when we asked them to respond to this reporting one something They would say and Catherine Tate actually said on stage is that they are already bold taking risks and she pointed to the upcoming. TV Show trickster. As an example which is an indigenous drama and this is a show with indigenous characters based on an indigenous novel I believe with indigenous directors behind the scenes. And were able to do this because we are the public broadcaster so we are taking risks and and they say they will continue to take risks but also spokesperson for the. CBC is basically basically made the point that many public broadcasters virtually all in their language have a mixture of commercial and public funding models and essentially. They're saying if you take ads away from the CBC you're going to need an extra three hundred million dollars or so and public funding and the CBC's position they'd rather just invest that in resources or programs they'd rather keep that revenue and just work on better serving their audience. Okay and the numbers just just for people. Listening are about a billion dollars in government revenue and about two hundred fifty million dollars per year in Adra. Vanu I've also heard the argument that the CBC BBC doesn't get as much money as other public. Broadcasters like the BBC well and it so advertising augment that again this is incredibly ambitious report and even even with their asking of the CBC and the real question is would the federal government be willing to fund the public broadcaster the way that the report art suggests so that it could really fulfil this new broader mandate And depending on what party is in power or who knows how sustainable that is okay. This is a lot of stuff stuff. And it's complicated and it's controversial and this is a government that is also in a minority position might not even be around. The Minister Minister of Heritage has said he wants to present a bill in parliament. I think by the end of June a this is something we want to move on quickly. Do you think that there. There's even the political will to get this done. I know the heritage minister is talking about it and wants to do this. But is this a priority ready for this government. I I do believe and what I am. Hearing from sources is that the the government does want to do this Is it achievable So that they can actually present a bill by June. I mean just given. Let's just think about everything we've talked about so far it is incredibly. We detailed stuff. That is going to change the very structure of regulation of broadcasting telecommunications in Canada. Can they solve those problems and write these new new rules that quickly that you could see a lot of fear mongering around this bill if other parties start saying well. This is going to affect their netflix spell. Exactly right and so it depends I think on the perceptions on what that bill looks like. Frankly I've talked to other people in the industry Such as the national president of ACTRA. Who he said look? I'm just happy this here. I'm happy that it's that the bill itself that the report itself is bold and his concern. is as long as they. They passed this while. They're still in power that it's taken so long for us to get to this point for these rules to finally be updated that if they miss. This opportunity doesn't have to be by June soon but if they miss this opportunity and then another the minority government the minority government could fall and then the next group comes in and then they hold more or hearings and then you know we'll be watching holograms before we finally get the laws and then we're going to need to update those laws but anyways Eli thank you so much we're gonNA keep keep tabs on the story. I I know we were joking. At the beginning of this conversation that this was two hundred and thirty five page report with ninety five recommendations. I was jealous that you talked about breaking up its superheroes but I actually find this discussion very interesting because it is about the regulation on the Internet Canadian culture and how they intersect and so thank you my pleasure the before we let you go today and update on the corona virus outbreak. The Chinese government has agreed to let permanent residents of Canada Canada with children. Take Part in an airlift out of Wuhan. The epicenter of the outbreak will allow this as long as one of the parents or the child holds Canadian navien citizenship. We'll be in touch with Guineans into one to provide them all the necessary details in order to prevent the viruses spread. Beijing won't allow permanent residents without children to leave the quarantine zone. Federal officials are now on the ground and Wuhan onto facilitate the evacuation of Canadians foreign affairs minister. Francois Affiliate Champagne said on Monday. That there are two hundred eighty Canadian passport holders and twenty four others who have requested to be airlifted out of the region. There's still no timeline on when the flight will take off them. Additionally we also need to consider the health and safety of Canadian Sierra thome when it does get here. The passengers will be quarantined. For two weeks at Trenton military re-based in Ontario as a precaution. That's all for today. I'm Jamie Zone.

3D Printing Today #335

"Three D. PRINTING. Today's show number three thirty. Five layer or shifting design trade offs. Tool changer in nimble updates. Welcome back to Three D. Printing. Today the podcast about all aspects of Three D. Printing Hobby professional industrial doesn't matter we covered all my name's Andy Cohen. An Amir. Mr Whitney Potter. Good pretty good Soul we do have some interesting stories to talk about rolling going to pick one. Save one the other one for the next week saw the makers of the very very popular printers CR ten and the ender three have announced via kickstarter of all places which I don't think is a bad idea. Their new three D. Printer the CR six and they give it the designation the CR six S E leveling free. Diy Three D. Printer Kit So if you go to kickstarter and I think we have the URL in the in our show notes. You could see this by the time this gets out. Unfortunately it will probably be too late. Of course any kickstarter story you here on this show. It's too late so don't get all excited although I think there's good reason to be somewhat excited about this three D. Printer on paper on the web it sure looks really really good in overall Shooting from the HIP overall without it in hand to me. It looks like it's basically in extremely well-polished productized I three Based on the I three design and it looks like they looked at every aspect of what we have out here today and polished it. So let's start with the bed. Which is one of my biggest pet peeves about the CR. Ten in the under three the bed and the plate it is not a flexible plate is a rigid. Looks like a glass backed plate that clips into place. Very nice and neatly very impressed with that right off the bat. That was one of the big weak points of the CR. Ten in the ender three which one can easily fix very very easily fixed. Well looks like out of the box you know longer will need to do that with the CR. Six another thing. That looked really interesting and improved to me was All the cabling the cabling stays. Everything is much much more sturdy. Everything's routed so it doesn't jumble and get stuck or you don't have to worry about getting a cable chain. It's it. Looks like a finished product now Adjustment of the belts are through knobs that are easily accessible. You don't have to worry about bolts. That wasn't a big deal to me. I never thought thought of that at all All of the the power supply and the on the controller boards are now neatly neatly arranged and positioned in a smart way. They use try namic drivers so it's super quiet The the feeding mechanism on the extruder is now. A lever is not spring mounted or if it is spring mounted the springs in a much much more reliable feeding mechanism on the shooter. It's still a very short Boden extruder except now the feeders. Been way improve. You don't have to go out and buy a modification to fix it the extruder itself We couldn't take it apart because we see pictures of it but it looks like there's some way that they're using the extruders hot end to get the probing information for Mesh compensation on the bed. So there's no need for beal touch and there's no I'm Ron Switch. I think that's one of the things you can do with the try namic drivers. If you're clever is you. Can you can read the current that the driver is supplying the new see the current spikes when it hits one it's pressing against something that is a movable and so they may be using that as their as their pro which we'll see how that works long-term or the with the nozzles. Well if that's what they're doing with the Zeolite then that's their limit switch and that would be the limit switches for x and Y as well sold. That's possible that is possible. In which case there will be problems as we saw problems with the tool changers use of the truck drivers and the reading the amperage on the motors. It worked but not all the time it worked. Maybe a two thirds of the time and that one third was a problem So we'll see how this machine works. We're going to see because I jumped in as a backer so that we can talk about it on this show and I'll probably give it to my son after we monkey with it and play with it but it looks like it. Looks like a really good move. And if I were P- Prusova I'd be a little bit concerned because at the price at least at the early bird price on kickstarter. It says it's going to cost three hundred nineteen bucks and now everybody's GonNa go. Yeah well the real price will probably be like three fifty but remember. This is a Chinese company and the real price may be lower. The real price may actually be lower than three nineteen at the end. So I wouldn't be all concerned about getting it right now via kickstarter. I wouldn't worry about it They usually fit their prices based upon market and not necessarily based upon profit margin. So we'll see what happens. Should be interesting interesting. Do Do you have any idea? If it's an all metal extruder path or what. The hot end is can't tell anything about one thing about how they released this three D. Printer which which they say they'll ship by September Yucky. We'll see it's kickstarter which means we'll probably see January February September on but one thing about kickstarter. Sometimes we saw this with Race Three D. They used kickstarter. Not as a as a way to kickstart for money but as a marketing tool and I think that it works really well as a marketing tool after all what they do they sent preliminary units to to Youtubers who are very popular. At least one of them is very pop on the other and they did their usual entertaining show based on based on their level of engineering. Which is basically layperson. There's no engineering opinions on their But they're they're fun to watch. Both of them are fun to watch And I do think they do a good Treatment of how complex. It is to put this thing together. The Final Assembly. Like to see our ten and the under three. Some assembly is still required. Unlike you know the the way it used to be where it's a full you after fully assemble it. These are partial assemblies. Which really not that. Big of a deal now. The ender three had a had a teflon liner correct. Yes it had an hot. It had a ptsd tube that went all the way down to the top of the nozzle mice. I suspect this is probably this the same or very similar. It's interesting that they that they say the nozzle temperature for the under three was up to two hundred and fifty five C and this one has a slightly more powerful heater on it. And they say it's up to two hundred sixty C. Which yes you can get a teflon lined hot end up to two hundred sixty. But YOU'RE NOT GONNA print with it at that temperature for very long. Yeah Yeah but still for a machine to PECI and PLA for a hobby level. You know you're if you're looking. Should I buy the CR ten the under three the PRUSOVA? Don't get me wrong. The process of brilliant machine. The if you're looking for quality components you go to the Prusova the PRUSOVA. You're less likely to need to modify it to change things because of the quality components. We don't know what this is going to be like at the CR six now my under three The only reason why I modify things because for my own my own fault I blew the Controller Board out of my stupidity But I didn't really need to swap out stepper motors. I didn't need to change the limits which is. I really didn't need to do that. So we may see that level of quality with the CR sets. We're GONNA find out but I did get reports on the under three and the CRTV that showed. That testing wasn't done at a system level prior to shipping they ship the completed parts without fully assembling them which means every now and then people got machines that had problems and that had to think. That's the the major selling point of the process is that there are just very well tested. You know the all the parts are three D. printed. So I mean there are three D. printed very well but they're still three D. printed parts versus the Kralupy are being made out of out of injection molded and metal parts. So I it's kind of a toss up as to as to which is the the the better quality I guess to to my mind what what really matters is which one is tested. Better coming out of the factory in. Are you going to get one that works if you buy? Aw I. Three that is fully. Assembled can tell you from experience. It's going to work perfectly out of the box Ryo because there's the one the one we have at the office that I work in was was bought fully assembled and it's been used for over a year. It's not in use to the same degree as I use my machines. It's used occasionally a print every now and then but it prince brilliantly and reliability So for those of you out there who think we're crusaders wrong. We are not crusaders We think the pursue research does brilliant job. We also think reality is a brilliant job So they're just different things at different things for different people for different needs okay. I think it's I think it's really interesting. That on their on their kickstarter that their goal was one thousand dollars in there now at one point. Eight million. Yeah but you know. They knew that they'd go way beyond their original goal. They knew that it shows you. The contrast effect. It's all marketing. They're all playing that marketing game. Come on and it's it's cute that there I I reward level is pledged without a reward. So you can give this big company. Thirteen dollars just because you believe. And they don't even send you a sticker or that gives you the right to be on their mailing list. I think you know. I don't think you you need to pay thirteen dollars to be on anyone's mailing list. Think so But at at the time of our recording those one hundred and thirty seven of these guys left at the early bird price of three nineteen. They have five hundred. Sixty eight at the KICKSTARTER special price at three thirty nine. And then after that they sell them do apax and triple packs and five packs and then you can buy ten packs. They're very. They're very sure of themselves. They really are. They're closing in on five thousand backers and they've been open for how many days I can't tell when they started but maybe a week but they're they're kick starter. I think we'll fly. We'll see any what's coming up on our show this week. Whitney let's see we start out Talking about layer shifting we discussed design trade offs. And then you give us an update on the tool changer and the nimble. Let's get this started. There's nothing like running a fourteen hour overnight print that uses a substantial portion of a spool and coming in the morning and finding that yes the print completed but that somewhere through it. One of the layer shifted. I'll get it happen repeatedly Yeah did did I was printing a large a case for an instrument. I'm I'm building and it was pet G and Yeah it was at a nightmare so so the question is what causes layer shifts. Okay so the first thing I ask of courses as does it happen repeatedly in Radin but if it's not and happens once or twice I think The spool may have crossover and it may have pulled a little bit And it popped off came loose but in that poll at knocked it out a register That's usually if it's only once or twice or part of the part of the print curling up and you crashing into that hard enough to knock it to skip step. Yeah I had to happen on the tool changer last night. Old Filament As it's unspoken from the spool retains its curves as as it gets close to the center and that curb gets in the way it's hard to control it using what folks are calling a reverse boden to basically a PT at the tube that leads to your carriage for indirect. Drive back if you use one of them with this kind of film and it presses up against the sides of the tubing which creates friction. It makes it harder to go through so older filament. That curling up like this commit problematic or could be it could be Pet G has a tendency to drop these big gobber and it could be something that I crashed into. But you'll see that you would see the Guber Well no because the print would be buried in the print in could happen in. The infant was just enough to Just knock it out of registered than it kept printing the next layer on top of the next layer was just know offset by a quarter inch could also the loose Set set set screws in your police. Yeah that could do it loose police. Yep Yep the other thing to look at is does it only happen in one axis or does it happen in both the x and Mike as it was happening in both the x and the Y. That's interesting yeah so a couple of other things to think of. We've covered all of the ones that are sort of standard for a well engineered Reliable Printer of course. This was one of those. This was happening on a printer that I've rebuilt myself. This is the the fusion right the fusion tech echelon idea maker that I that I redid redid the electron x Kept the the Kenna Matic's Redid? The extruder redid the the electronics. Because get a medicare they were maker over stalled maker style but it was. The machine was literally could take that machine and sell it to the metal recycler. There is so much metal in it so very sturdy. Very well built. Electronics weren't good at three mill. Boden extruder which was just a frigging nightmare yeah so scrapped. All that and put the put a better extruder and and better electron but the problem. Is You know once. You're you're doing that. You got other factors. That haven't really been well. Well tested and and explored so then. There's a question of The stepper drivers for instance right if the stepper drivers aren't supplying enough current. That's right then. Easi easily rose dollars right. Especially if you're going too fast going too fast or the other thing is your step drivers. Get TOO HOT THAN THEY. Start Dropping staps. I've never seen this. Oh Yeah well. Mo- most of your engineered meal production printers they have adequate cooling on it this one. I made myself so. Is that what happened? Well what happened was I ran the job on a different printer. So sick of you never really figured it out. I haven't figured I tried a bunch of stuff. I tried slowing it down the The LUPI LA Or pet G rather goober. There's not much I can do to control those But Although some extruder seemed to be more or less prone to produce those I've often wondered what those reform and I thought perhaps it's from the a defect in the orifice of the nozzle. If there's anybody out there that thinks they know why that she does that. Yeah don't hesitate send us an e mail. Let us know. But it's been a mystery to me and I've never seen the solution to yeah. I know that for better quality. Peci doesn't happen. It's only the super cheap. Peci data happening Well this is This the F. One hundred that I redid it has a what is it an e. Three D nozzle Johan. Those usually pretty good. Well sure it wasn't a usually the knockoff. Three nozzle no. This is a real one that I bought from. Did you Polish not Polish it to a friend of ours. Say We're supposed to take them when their brand new rubber on your genes kittle any the micro bearing away. I have done that. I frankly don't see a difference at all. Well it depends on how much you're Ruben. Your genes or not the most abrasive. But if it had a little borough on there maybe you could knock that off. I'm but anyway I just I put it on. Ran The job in a different printer and it worked perfectly. But it's it's enough of a pain in the ass to to think about you know what I hate it. When had all the different things that can go wrong? That's a good reason to have multiple printers. Sure as things to work on the tool changer or the one goes right into the race. Three D. in works perfectly or are you just have have a print that for whatever reason I it. Just a specific printer just doesn't take too well for seen that too so having multiple printers with different types of extruders in different types of kinetic says definitely worthwhile speaking of which. There's one type of printer which we have that we don't talk about much these days. Probably because we don't use it the on Ryan the Orion dot not that long ago. But but it's time it's time to revisit. Them Rivers deltas. I'm hearing from folks up there folks who I have great respect for la like this guy named Dave Dave Dave and he tells me he tells me that his most reliable and finest prince come from his Delta like Oh that's is that the case with its. Boden he goes. Yeah now I respect this guy's opinion also our friend Ryan He usually prince with Delta's It's time for us to revisit. Okay once tool changer. Your becomes a boring for and and and and I've got a long list of upgrades to evaluate input onto the under three in the future projects. Besides a railcar is going to be a large delta. Yeah try to find the most popular. Get out there. Okay and we'll have some fun with it. Yeah I I've I've always wanted to build the delta. That was basically you know. Be By you. Know eight foot long rails and build a delta that sits on the floor in your in your shop and that's my criticism of the delta. It might be great but the very very efficient build area is so weird that it doesn't mean enough of the use cases rise hit with well. It's a cylinder but you have to. If you're printing something square it has to fit within that Sillier But on top of that you have to have so much extra height to the printer. 'cause you have to you know your Z. Is Determined by how much space there is under your extruder when everything is is a retracted as high as it will go so you have to have so much extra high some compromise. So I'm GONNA take a shot here and I want you to either agree or disagree. Okay I don't think you're going to disagree on this one. Okay so there. There are a range of three D. Printer approaches design approaches. Delta's to Mendel and everything in between then in between we have I guess you call them Cartesian which includes I don't know how what you call the old rep one approach with loops versus H bought which requires an extremely strong enclosure and framer rigid. Very very rude assistant and then there is the fairly popular core x y approach. Sure there's there's many other approaches to but but we've got this range of it's either a Delta which is the three little arms moving around in a column and we've got a box with a bunch of different ways of operating but the main thing about it is at the bed moves and Z. And then we have the mendel where the bed moves in the Y axis right. It could move in the x axis. It's still a mental like the old printer bots used to go but it's still kind of a amendment x y just depends on which we are looking at it from right so now. I'm going to say none of them is better than the other. They're all they all can be have advantages and disadvantages. They all can be excellent they all can be poop. It all depends on how well it's engineered. How well it's tuned and how much the operator stands okay. Why would you go with one versus another beyond aesthetic or beyond social reasons? Your friends bought one. If you're kind of scratching your head going gee which one should I get? Let's talk about where they are in kind of a scale kind of arrange. Okay okay so let me take a shot at it. You want speed You need speed Delta Definitely Yeah. You need Low-cost wanted to be very inexpensive meant go mendel dip if you want the widest range of possible use cases you go with an enclosed a box shaped one. That's Kinda wear I would point a Meyer to Now if you're gonNA build it the kit build a kit I would go on the extremes either delta or because they're the most fun to build right they're the most popular kits and Yummy. The mental has advantage that the individual axes are kind of decoupled from each other. So you only have to engineer. One thing to move one way or another thing to move the other way Delta has the advantage of your. You basically build the same thing three times right. If as long as you you can build one actuator you build three of them and then them together and as long as the coupling is good l. works finds more importantly. There are lots of kids. Oh yeah sure. There's lots of kids and and even if you're not building from a kit there are for instance for Delta's there. These beautifully made little analyzed parts for all the corner sure of the Delta you can make us annual limited extrusion and let's face it a statically. The most interesting printer is the delta. Oh yeah it it. Adele does our mind blowing to to watch now we can you get a delta? That's a tool changer. Experiment with it. There's no reason you couldn't I saw. I haven't seen one. I did see one out there. I don't remember where but again if you go to the three D. printing tips and tricks Google Group and you dig through there. You will find the link. Somebody posted there a link on Youtube of someone who has a Delta so the delta when it wants the change change carriages change change change extruders kind? A centers itself raises the three arms all the way up. And then there's this kind of like a ferris wheel. Four spoke to a tool magazine. Instead of it's horizontal vertical and it kind of rotates finds into position and clicks the carriage. It is kind of interesting. So maybe someday there will be a tool changer. For Delta's dwell extrusion. No IDEX. No yeah you're not going to see that on a Delta right. Yeah the interesting thing. Is that a lot of the new. The the big serve bane of early. Delta's was was the joints in the arms and they figured that out and they figure that out and the best solution that I've seen is using rare earth magnets. That's pretty cool so you got sockets with our there magnetized than the and you've got these these perfectly machine chrome spears that that you know. Make your ball and socket joint and you can either have one side or the other be magnetic. There's different designs for it. But it when you've got that then you a tool changers. Seems like you have the ability to you. Notice pop one out up another one in possible Yup So remember if you're GONNA go Delta you're going to go with the Boden means you're driving timber for your extruders going to be off your carriage in a way off to the side now. The downside to that is off. Tpu You're going to have to go really slow. You expected to work and you have the disadvantage of you. Can't watch out for filament. That breaks for the brakes and Youtube. It's a hassle. You take the two apart and taking the TUBA PARTS PAINFUL. And there's no technical reason why you couldn't have a direct drive on on a Delta and people do you have them the it's possible but most of the time it's time the because then you get the speed right now if you're going to build a a a a mental base machine. They're actually pretty easy to make. And many of them is not a full kit. It's just simply some assembly required like Andrew. Three took me forty minutes to put all together the CNC. Max from what I understand takes a couple of days of time. Now if you prefer the box shape and you want to build. I've got my personal favourite. Just a my personal my opinion. The rail core. Wow that's a machine that I really enjoy that machine. You can get it with three lead screws that that automatically self love self level the playing of the bed on you. It's a beautiful core. X Y can be fully enclosed. You can add machined aluminum all over everything and make it this fine tooled jewel of three D. Printer on but that's just my opinion so it is possible to go through that entire range. Whichever one is best for you. That's the one you pick so the to change has four zesty nibbles on it and I've finally overcome. All the little hiccups and problems took me a couple of days. One thing after another as we've reported here and I finally started to get some prints It's a big improvement. But but it's still not there so let me give you some examples when I print when I print as a single extruder. That is a used one tool. At a time I used to get with the titans with Baudoin's pretty good prince not bad at all at forty to sixty millimeters per second print speed. When I went any higher I got after effects. Also with the BAUDOIN'S I had to compensate for Start and end of the tool paths and occasionally when the tool path was short that compensation was visible. And you'd see the effect in the tool path so you know it depending upon the object shape geometry's sometimes you had to bypass the what you had to tweak to get a clean stopper start with the Bowdoin as a compromise. It's something that you have to be aware of and work with all that's all gone. I don't have to worry about that any longer. So now I print at a minimum of eighty millimeters per second And no tweaking. I get a one point. Seven five retraction on P. La and on getting better quality print single single extruder. That I'm getting on my clone are one with the Bowdoin with the Von Tech. The context shooter or comparable. I I would say it's about as good if not better than what I'm seeing on. The clone are one which is also core x y with the dual Hobday gear. Bontoc extruder running at eighty millimeters per second. Now I haven't gone much faster on the clone are one. I've gone much much faster. And I start to see effects that I don't believe is from the hardware backed I think. It's from the the polymer itself. The molten polymer has its own momentum. That can't be helped and you're GONNA get effects that's just the nature of FDIC right. Not Always GonNa stay exactly where you wanted to write. But so so the. The the result of the Nimble lls is an improvement over the Titan. Baudoin's for single extrusion. Single extrusion now again just like before as soon as you go to multi material a multiple extruders multiple tools. The whole game changes everything changes and So I tried lots of different approaches even with the direct drive. Tiny tiny tool paths are still a problem. It's improved it's better. Yeah but it's not as good as I was getting with the palate. Now one can argue. Well you had a massive purge block right Palette and yet a direct drive extruder and I had a direct drive shooter. That was closer to my heart and remember. This is the V six with the Nimble or talking maybe four and a half five inches from the tip of the hot end to where it's driven. So it still has an link the filament in their Gotcha and there's compress and stretch the drive cable as well and there's the drive. Eighteen is will flop with. I am seeing some effect for when I do for retractions that are too fast and what I'm seeing is that it it sticks a little bit then goes real quick and so I took overcome that I just slow down my retractions tiny bit and it works fine now so I'm looking at the color print and I picked a mosaic a mosaic a company. That makes the Pallet. They put out lots of before. They came out with their canvas. That does the painting they had a whole bunch of samples on thing verse and I've grabbed them all thankfully and I try printing them and the one that I printed. I was one that I was never able to get enough reliability with on the pallet because the Palette would always start to fail on me is the totem pole. All that came out nicely. Yeah but it's not that great. Well it's not perfect. Yeah there there's some drooling and stuff now. The first mistake I made is. I forgot my speed a multi multi tool. You've got to slow down There's there's too much traveling. There's too much stuff happening. That's all at eighty millimeters per second. Okay so I'm not getting his clean and as fine apprentice. I was getting with the Palette which I was running on one extruder with a huge purge. Block right you're using a third as much material. That's true okay so I thought well wait a minute. What if I put perch block on nine? I've got the reliability for knocking the purge blocked off because my wiping. I got the wiping down. I I get I clear. Off The strands reliability is up to about ninety five ninety six percent in other words for a print the size of my fist. Maybe three strands might make it through. And you could see that on the beak of the Totem Pole. You can see a busy and wondering contrast in colors tiny bit of blue on the in there. Yeah so I tried printing the to lower parts of the totem pole again. And this time I used a purge block and I did see an improvement A very very small slight improvement slightly better quality not that high equality lot not perfection but a slightly better quality. Remember these are multicolor. Peel prints. Yeah as funny the their calls a totem pole tiki. Yeah so Is is the tool changer. Now these solution for doing multicolor objects multicolor multi material objects. No no it's not. It's not there yet so working. It's a work in progress. It's likely to get better. And better is the nimble the solution no the nimble was not the solution. It didn't fix it for reels on. It's still a challenge to get a multicolor print It's a lot faster than the pallet. It's a lot more reliable than the pallet. I can get a print successfully without a fail. The Palette would fail. I'd get a I'd get a bad splice. You get one bad splice. The entire yard go. I'm so it's a lot more liable. Which one do you go with while the pallets relatively inexpensive and if you can get one that's reliable least for a while because they're never going to be reliable permanently because you're using them and things start to go rad with them you have to tweak it and tune it and fix it? I don't know plus. We don't have a pallet on the new pal appellate to. I can't really address how reliable it is. Unfortunately I hear really improved it. I hear from folks out there that they get reliability. The question is is is your liability. Same as my reliability in other words how many parts have you printed in the last couple of days kind of reliability? Yeah when you think about know I mean? I'm sure you're familiar with the concept of nines of reliability. Right you haven't ninety percent reliable ninety nine percent reliable ninety nine point nine percent reliable right what NASA goes for ninety nine point nine nine nine percent reliable and there is still one back in this space shuttle program. There was still like thirty broken. Parts in every spatial launched just a day in many parts so think about how many spices you're going to have in one of those prints and if you're you know. Two Nines of reliability is probably optimistic for the technology that we were looking at. So how many splices can you reliably actually execute and have them all? Go perfectly given that as you point. Out A one failed splices equals failed print. Yes now I admit that. Like the spices. The more the spices the lower the reliability. It's the same tool change. The more the tool changes the lower the reliability the more complexity the system. Exactly the more complex things are happening but it's not as single. It's not a single point of failure right. Something may not be ideal. You may get a strand appear but but having A tool change fail is way less likely than having splice fail unfortunately for for mosaic on now as far as other kinds of multi-material prints such as using Apache print with PLA for dense support. I'm getting fantastic exquisite results. I'm blown away I'm ex. I'm getting comparable to dissolve -able support material on the Fordis- or the Mojo excellent of course it depends upon the the Geometry's and it depends upon the complexity of the part and how I done my support but comparing it with the Fordis- that they have where I work I'm getting it. Looks about the same About the same quality so with with multi materials. That are lots of changes. You've got slow the thing down. It's that simple isn't it? Isn't it a panacea? No not so far. No okay but we're going to try yet again. We have the HUMIRA. That's e three Ds new extruder and this extruder while it does add a lot of weight. The feeder mechanism is as close to the hot end of the nozzle as they could physically get it and theoretically the closer you are to some point to the beginning of your melt zone the better you should be able to control it with a dual. D- The dual hob gears driving it to hop drive. Assume you're able to keep the heat out of your geared era so we do have the parts all printed. I do have the camera. That's the next thing to try. And we'll let you know how that turns out Whitney another show shows written to our Dr Waiting for encoding uploading and commitment on our feed to all of our very supportive listeners. Thank you all for your support on Patriot Dot Com. Thank you for your good reviews on. I tunes we do appreciate those could use some written reviews by the way. And Hey thanks for listening. We do it for you. We don't do it for money. We do it for fun. We don't even talk or advertise about our own businesses. Not that I have one. I've I've ended all my businesses. I'm retired. Are you retired pretty much at least in terms of the? Three D. Printing World. I other stuff but it's not. I not advertising it to the public. Three D. Printing for clients but not really for money. I don't need it I charge them adequately. I don't overcharge you're under charge but I I still do it because it's fun. I still love to three print for people and help them with their products. So my clients still come to me. The side want to work with still come to me. Um So But we don't do it for. We don't do it to advertise ourselves. We're not like so many of the youtubers out there trying to get that advertising money we do it and And so the the the result of that is when we get something in it stinks. We're gonNA tell you it stinks and not worry about people being angry at us and so Hopefully by September when we get the CR six if it stinks. We're going to tell you that it stinks and why it stinks so. I hope it doesn't. It doesn't stick. It could be the Big Three D. Printer for Christmas next year or discount. We'll see okay so I guess we have Christmas next. We're going to have a Christmas okay. So thing of the week I picked the thing of the week this week. I think if you're at home as we all are with your kids and you want to do something fun with them. That's educational and they'll grow from it. Here's a great project to do together. It's called the Pentagon petted judge pedagogical pedagogy goal. I like to say pedagogical. Whatever optical Voltaire Pile You know why is it called pedagogical pedagogical? Why is it called? That pedagogical means teaching right. So so this is basically a a model of of Voltaire pile which is a very primitive sort of battery. It's probably the first sort of battery That you can put together with your kids with some relatively simple parts that you probably have sitting around your garage and you can demonstrate to them how you can build a battery sort of one. Step up from the potato battery you remember. What I like about this one is that this is the original invention by Allesandro Volta. The very first real workable battery And it's it's you can stack it so that you could increase the voltage and as you build your layers. You learn about how the negative ion the negative Electrons move how you can get them to move and what the word voltage really means and you get down and dirty. And it's a good way to really understand the very very first step in learning electrical engineering and the very that foundation is critically important. And if you got it down to the level that you G- rocket everything else will flow really nicely. There's there's a there's a pun in their everything else will flow really nicely but and now this this is a really Nice Three D. print the three D print sets it up. And you can use pennies that are copper and you can use Zinc coated washers. And it makes it easy to put together no liquids involved. No acids very cool. I I make this just for the fun of let's comes to us from from Malla zero four otherwise known as Sebastian Marsh from France. And its thing not the going there a thing number off four three four four four nine three and the only thing you need after you've got this all built and working as you need to go out and get yourself a FROG. It's gotta be fresh. And then gets some wires and connect your voltaire pile to the frogs light make it twitch that's what vaulted right or you could just get yourself light bulb or put it to you. Don't have to kill a fan era due to your enough voltage for your baby brother. That might be project right there. Maybe if you maybe touched it to his tongue like remember tasting.

Ep. 418 | What's Ben Sasse Doing? | What Will Happen in 2020

"You're listening to Steve dais on demand. And the low this is Steve dates. The Steve day show. Happy Monday, welcome to the day show that would be me tied and Aaron are here as well. If you'd like to join us eight nine hundred thirty three ninety three is the number. That's eight nine hundred thirty three ninety three Steve. It's day dot com is I can Email the program like us on Facebook. Follow us on Twitter at Steve day show, at least while you still can we are live on the blaze is the great purge is taking place on Twitter as they make their way up the food chain. We are live in the blaze on demand at crtv. Coming up a little bit later on today's show. Happened to Ben Sasse anybody know, what is he doing? Do you know, do you know, I think would Ben Sasse is always been doing? Because I I don't know. I don't know if he wants to be a Senator I don't know if he wants to be the next Pearl clutching managing editor at the weekly standard. That's what I was going to go. I'm not I'm not really sure what he wants to do. But he's kind of sending me the vibe of the guy who will hold their tunics while they're stoning us, and we'll feel real bad about it. And we'll say test this shouldn't be happening. But you brought it on yourselves. Don't you or we'll talk about that a little bit later on with a guest who actually knows him a little bit, our friend. Bob, Andrew plots will join us and then next hour, I'm going to save you two years of time. Anguish frustrating commercials ads polls skewed or otherwise, I'm going to save you all of that time. And I'm gonna do my two thousand and twenty presidential election analysis today, I'm gonna tell you what's going to happen right now. And a pretty confident. I'm right. Okay. I'm gonna lay that out next hour, and then I'm gonna let Todd and Aaron pushback with questions comments and insults after that. So to be clear thanksgiving is clearly over. This is payback to you for refusing. Let's let me celebrate Christmas until thanksgiving was over high like them apples. Right. All right. But first we begin with lots gone down. We've been gone for five days. So here's what happened while we were away. What's up with all those black men who voted for the Republican and the Georgia governor's race? Welcome to what happened while we were away, whereas zany hijinks will ensue. So when you do the new carriers as redo, and as we're thinking about doing would you go esteem, or would you go with electro-magnetic because steam is very reliable and the electromagnetic? I mean, unfortunately, you have to be Albert Einstein to really work at properly. What would you do? Albert Einstein to run the nuclear power plants that we have here as well. But what we're doing that very, well, the the I would go. Electro-magnetic cat. We do pay a heavy coffee transiting steam around the good, okay? I like to hear that. I'm actually happy about that answer. Because at least you know, they're doing what they're doing. But that's actually very good answer. Maybe Trump should get on the phone with the military and send the military back to the border yesterday hordes of illegal aliens of stormed across the US, Mexico border Tijuana, according to the customs and border patrol agency. Tear gas had to be used since several illegals were throwing projectiles at border patrol agents. Just another day that ends in y in a land with no borders. Tensions are heightening in Ukraine as Russia yesterday blocked and seized Ukrainian gunships in the Kerch strait Ukraine will vote on whether or not to Claire martial law in the area today. Why straight men hate astrology so much Twitter just banned another conservative pundit, Iraq war vet and former congressional candidate. Jesse Kelly says he was. Banned for literally no reason the Email he received notifying him of his banishments didn't say what rules he had broken them. Megan Murphy was also suspended for saying men are men and women are women also Twitter just updated its terms of service to include prohibition of dead naming. I e calling Bruce Jenner Bruce Jenner. Let's check in on Louis Farrakhan. Call me an anti Semite. Stop it. I'm anti termite. So maybe it's time to get off that infernal website after all repeat after me taxation is better than philanthropy. John casick, ladies and gentlemen, did run for president last time or any ran for back in nineteen ninety nine as well how seriously we thinking about taking it on this time. Very seriously. I'm considering Georgia. These are Ernest conversations that go on virtually every day men with muscles and money are more attractive to straight women and gay men showing gender. Roles aren't progressing drum criticized the ninth circuit court of appeals the other day, which prompted chief Justice John Roberts to write a strongly worded essay extolling the virtues of an independent judiciary which prompted then this tweet from Chuck Schumer. I don't agree there. He often with Jeff Justice Roberts, especially in his partisan decisions which seem highly political, but I'm thankful today that he almost alone among repub-. Stood up to President Trump and for an independent judiciary. And that's what happened while we were away in two minutes or less. I don't know guys that we're going to be able to wait until January second twenty nineteen. We come back after our Christmas break to launch the. Calling calling Bs theme of the year because. There was there was feces overflow which in that rundown. I'm fine. Speeding. I think our worldview year may have not taken. Tried. The year of the world view as an astounding success. That call. Signed survey VAR. Does anybody know what that was? I don't think Trump does what that was. Where are we building the Pacific railroad? Was that you listened grant. Picking the call to the railroad. Get some steam out there. Open up manifest destiny. What's that? But you know, what can we book though? So that's where it starts. Well. But then this is this is the frustrating. You know magnificent. Basf beauty of Donald Trump. He has the ultimate mala propped on a live, Mike. Acting talking like he's president grant to the western railway in eighteen seventy four. And then he turns around and correctly, hammers the ninth circuit court, everything he said was exactly right. And if I understand John Roberts rebuttal. Donald Trump was calling out the ninth circuit for violating supreme court precedent. If I understand the chief Justice of the land correctly John Roberts is upset that Donald Trump. Once the ninth circuit to acknowledge the supreme court held by John Roberts is supreme. My following this. Right. I think those I read everybody's comments. And I'm like, I believe. John Roberts is ripping Trump for telling the ninth circuit to obey the edict of John Roberts is that. What went down there? This is just a classic as of that old axiom or saying, whatever the brain has declared that the brain is the most important organ in the body. That's that's all this was this is just I mean, hey. Dare you. Stay in your lane mister president. How dare you what shirt my supremacy? That just goes to show you this this is beyond reform, and it's gonna take more than good judges. The system in and of itself is corrupt. The thing is so far gone. Chuck Schumer doesn't even understand his own scam. In a magnificent display of self ownership. He tweets out condemnation for John Roberts rulings while then ripping Trump for condemning lower court rulings. This whole thing is convoluted it's banana Republic, and we're beyond just we need better. Judges you need it you need to reform the system, it's not a Justice system. It's just a system. It is it's banana Republic, it's oligarchy ill. It is arbitrary. It's a joke and the president of the United States. How colossally embarrassing that phone conversation was is a one eighty percent one hundred eighty degree. I should say the other direction. Exactly correct on what he said about the ninth circuit. And the chief Justice ought to be backing him up. Years. The irony of this is what I'm trying to say Trump is actually accurately. Following the judicial system the judicial supremacy claim they believe in. But they don't believe in this system. They don't believe in story decisive. They don't believe in precedent. They don't it's the same scam. As as people on Twitter were saying over the weekend leftist were saying that that taxation is better than than charity and philanthropy. They don't believe that. They don't believe that. We're just calling people on all BS from now on all all Bs. Oh, and I cannot have this is all if I end this year with one this next year with one damn friend. I'm going to be disappointed. I didn't do my job. All will be called this to people in this room with you, which one of us. We're good have tried. Look at us, the trinity, then all right? That's kind of where we are here. Okay. Let us call out. All right. Who's the us? We're talking to ourselves. Little Genesis one joke there. So here's the thing. All Bs will be called. We are this next year is going to be the christening scene in the godfather to on a regular basis, like something nice ceremony will be happening over here. Here. It's just going to be mass assassinations. We're all family businesses getting settled all over the place. So let's settle some family business right now, there isn't a single leftist in America who really believes that who believes that taxation is superior to philanthropy and charity, not a one. Here's how you would know how many of them give more than they. Oh. Warren Buffett says things like this think Warren Buffett has accountants that help him manage his tackling is tax Bill. Think Warren Buffett keeps accountants around that that have him pay more than he does think he does that. I just assumed he had tiny little elves just giving it away in the streets. Yeah. Yeah. Nobody does that Mike Huckabee is still joke about how when he was governor Arkansas they added a box. You could check on the state income tax form where you could check the box, and volunteer to pay more. Would you like to know how many people did that come up like really low which like to guess zero? No one believes this anybody who says that is in telling the truth. The either don't know what they they're so far into the cult that they have lost. They've lost their damn minds or they're lying to you. Because what they really are into his control and coercion. That's what they're really with. They're really telling you is control in coercion. Is preferable than your individual. Tommy. That's what they're really telling you my control in the system that I'm part of control Inco in ability to coerce you into doing what we want you to do is superior to your freedom and liberty. That's what they're really saying. No one really believes on their face. No one really does. And here's how you can tell if you're if you've got somebody who's just giving you a social Justice where you're talking point because they saw. You know? Karl Marx is my homeboy on Twitter tweet this out, and they thought oh that sounds so cool and just ask them. Hey, pay more this January pay more next month. When the tax Bill comes pay. More fact, don't even wait we paycheck snakes pay period. And you look at what was held. Take some of your net and send it back. You want to be heartless? I mean, this is charitable, and you can hear how you can also tell in the Obama administration, we had more people on food stamps record highs. We more people on food stamps than the total population of Spain. How come they didn't have press conferences in the rose garden, celebrating all of the charity that the United the people of the states were so compassionate and doling out? Remember, those did you ever get any press releases along those lines, I know because that's complete and total bunk. No one believes that no one really believes that. And neither do judicial supremacists. Whether they're Republicans or Democrats really believe in the system, they claim to be a part of they've they've abandoned. That's why I don't even argue people send me emails now all the time because like while you do that. Because a lot of you are just being introduced to some of these arguments. So you're asking me questions about Marbury versus Madison stuff, I don't usually respond why because they're irrelevant. Because the people that believe in that really don't believe in that. We're we're way past Marbury versus Madison, we're not arguing we're not we're not arguing judicial review we left that behind the Warren court, we're arguing judicial supremacy. And that essentially means starry decisive in other words, the preponderance of precedent interprets the law. None of that matters. What it is what I want to be the law is the law. What I want it to be for any rationale. I want it to be. Anything I want I do. And there's a damn thing any of you can do about it. That's what the system is. Donald Trump was was telling the ninth circuit court. You are violating the US supreme court. The chief Justice of the supreme court sided with the people violating his own precedent. Why? Because how dare another branch claim it has any say in what we do here. We are supreme as not as a court as a body as a branch we can make you do until you what to do anything. We want. Most of your lawyers care which lot ninety nine percent of the law schools. They come out of having studied the constitution, certified Lee at all. But they've all been taught a court determines its own jurisdiction. They've all been taught that. And that's what you saw that exchange between Trump. And the chief Justice he doesn't even care about his own system. Cares about power. Power coercion control because he's a progressive. He's just too small P one. That's what all progressives care about is controlling coercion. Which is why even when they side with us on the stuff we care about notice. They almost always do it from the wrong premise have you noticed that they never ever actually assert like in the master cake. Shop. They simply said to the to the government of Colorado. You were just too mean to this guy come up with a way to make him. Do compel him to do things. It doesn't show. You're just nasty to. I'm sure you can make him violate his conscience. If you're nice about it, all you want. They never rule based on the precedent. We want even when they side with us. The president never is the constitution means what it says. And the people are supreme. That's never how they decide. It's always from a premise that grants them control and coercion every single time. Something else that needs to be discussed. We're gonna talk more about this on crtv. Today is what's happening with Twitter? Here's the thing. If you don't work in the media, you probably don't understand why this matter so much because less than twenty five percent of Americans have a Twitter account sound like Facebook over eighty percent of Americans have a Facebook account in the vast majority of Americans who have won utilize it at least on some kind of a regular basis weekly monthly only less than less than twenty five percent of Americans have a Twitter account. And who knows amongst those Americans that do how many of them utilize it on a regular basis. Here's the problem though. Just like in nineteen o five twenty five percent of Americans probably had a phone in their home. But the people that were the decision makers in the culture did in the telephone replaced. The the, you know, the messenger horse guy in how we communicated ideas. That's kind of what Twitter has become. Most of the narratives that get established or created in today's infotainment culture. Originate with Twitter. Even though the vast majority of Americans are not on it don't use on a daily basis. Those who form opinions. It's not just on the left. I mean, the Twitter is the president of the United States communication department. Wouldn't you say, yeah, that's a sensually? He's he's he's the first president ever really to be in modern times. Anyway, I don't know what things were like in. You know prior to, you know, indoor plumbing electricity and mass media, but in the modern era, he's the only president to really be his own spokesman, what is the that provides that opportunity Twitter. Twitter gives him an opportunity to to go around any false narrative any fake narrative. Get his own message out directly to millions of the American people all at once. And then most of what most of the liberal media reacts to from this White House that what does that content? Most of it come from Twitter. Does it come from his official statements? Does it come from press conferences, what is most of their reaction to the day from the White House come from from Twitter? And so we're looking at. The number one. This has become. The number one gathering place of design nice. We're we're seeing movie scripts changed and movie movies recast based on what the Twitter mob set. Thanks. So even though the vast majority of Americans are on it don't like it don't care. The vast majority of Americans who are involved in making major decisions that impact all of your lives are on it and are heavily influenced by it. Back in the eighties. We broke up mob L for antitrust violations. They were too big too dominant. But they never decided who got a phone line based off of what you were going to say well on the line was heavily offensive. Like, they never said David Duke when he was the grand wizard of the Robert Byrd for that matter when they were grand dragons of the KKK because you're racist. You can't have a phone number. Nobody would have ever thought of doing that. Nobody would have ever thought of saying Larry Flint because you pedal smut. You can't have a phone number. But Twitter is doing that. And they're not even in their doing it very selectively. The guy who runs it isn't a moron. He's in the media all the time. He's well aware of the fact that calypso Louis Farrakhan is on their dropping racist anti semitic bombs with impunity. While he eliminates all these people. And it was funny. I said on Friday, you can see. Now, they're beginning to work their way up the food chain when they banned lower Luma, and I don't know much about bloomer. I know she doesn't think much about people like me of her going tangents on Twitter about Christianity's foolish and dumb and won't save you and things of that nature. I don't know much about her work. I've heard her labeled. All right. I don't really even know what that means anymore 'cause everybody's all right now, and nobody is to to the to the new staff at CNN everybody at not at the weekly standard or four people at at national review are the alright now. Okay. So I don't know what that means. But. Alex Jones is a certified fraud. Crazy. They they started at the bottom of the food chain. Now there were they work their way up to lure allure. I pointed out on Friday on Twitter. You can see they're starting to work their way up the food chain now, and then I get home after taking the family out to dinner and a movie after we watched Zoe dance today, and I get home in the news is Jesse Kelly. Jesse Kelly's Ted Cruz guy was originally an anti-trump guy, and then kind of became only the only option we have other than Hillary. So I'll put up with guy. Serve this country's marine combat bet. I follow him on Twitter. I don't know what he could have said. I mean, there's a chasm between Alex Jones and Jesse Kelly guys. Jesse Kelly's the guy now where a lot of us have to start asking if he's gonna go. Then a lot of us are gonna go. So we're gonna conversation today on our roundtable on crtv. What's the proper conservative push back to this one of the most active influential conservative Twitter accounts, insta-, pundit, shut his down in protest. Fox News has not tweeted on Twitter for three weeks since they allowed their platform to be used to out Tucker Carlson's private residents. I mean, even the Meghan Murphy feminist, I wanna make sure audience understands who Megan Murphy is I only discovered her the last few weeks. She is a hard left feminist. This isn't like who's the mom from the staunch Catholic. Allie used to be on. Everybody loves Raymond whom. I think enough right. Who I didn't? Thank you heat Nisar name. Right. But Tricia, she she she identifies herself, basically as as a Christian feminist. I've heard identify. No, no, this woman is a gala -tarian third wave feminist, which is exactly why she's like. You're imposing the patriarchy on me by telling me men can now steal positions from women. I can't think of anything more anti feminist than giving things women have long deserve to have that have been denied them and giving it to a guy because he puts on eyeliner and gets a boob job. She's right. She's the one that's actually following her own a gala Terry view to its logical end. And she suspended. So. Conservatism isn't an ideology, it's an observational science. And observational sciences observe that certain things take priority. Okay. You have a right to keep in bear arms, for example. But if you have documented in your past you have exhibited violent behavior. Have you done something? Then that you've essentially forfeited that. Right. So you're going with this. Yes. Okay. And I think we it's time to start having this conversation because we're now to the point now where we're beyond the canary in the coalmine now as you like to say quitting Lord of the rings. This is we're open war is upon you. Now, this is very clear if Jesse Kelly gonna go if left-wing feminists who are like women Jonah's and men don't. But thank you if they go then then there's no subtlety now. And you're we're beyond Alex Jones kind of had it come into him. This is now essentially the meeting place for the American zeitgeist narrative is openly purging anything that will not line up with cultural Marxism now, and we need to have a conversation. It's conservatives about how to push back against that. We will today on crtv. John casick. If I was Donald Trump's political director. I'd be on my knees right now. Begging him to run. Well, Steve president who face primary challenges never win. And his dad was a mailman. I think this is this is different though. In the reason why I think it's different is because we've never had a president before whose personality played so well opposite another personality and so poorly when left to its own. Like when lift to its own you get moments like Trump on that phone. Okay. And you're just like crush with fingernails on a chalkboard. Or was was that the president of the United States? But when he has a foil, he is cash money, homey. And here's what John casick primary does he'll primary and from the left, and I mean from the way left which will rally Trump's conservative base nationwide, and it will allow Trump as well to dominate new cycles when these democratic candidates are going to be out there running for their open primary. They're going to struggle to get oxygen. Traditionally what we've seen is president's kind of almost go away for five months when they're in power and the other parties have a primary, you know, that unless and usually they only make news when something bad happens because they're the incumbent. He's going to be out there. The best Trump is campaigning Trump. The worst Trump has governing Trump when he gets to campaign straw, man. You know foil, he crushes people and case. Good to give him the perfect foil for the system every thumb Sukkur. You could imagine what come out of the woodwork. Trump will be able to rally is conservative base, and the Democrats and their primary won't be able to suck all the oxygen out of the room. In fact, they'll be sucking for oxygen because he's going to be in the room moment. Back here on this day show alive on the blaze on demand at crtv.

I mean, I was so we're shutting down major metropolitan airports closing parts of the border and. And beefing up border enforcement and the cause of all these things is. A mad rush by a force of non citizens at a border of a sovereign country. Traditionally. Those characteristics. Todd were described as a. Attack and invasion. Yeah. Yeah. That's. Typically, how we described those things as in invasion. Anyway, let's move on nothing there Zena. Yes. Yeah. I just read been Don lemon says it's fake news. It means more than when Donald Trump's just drew. I just read through story though. So finds patient actually, you're near xenophobes in the dictionary. Yeah. Okay. Okay. Great. All right. So. Been sass. What you doing? That's ever. Does anybody know he's just been sassy, ma'am? You know, what you said you thought he was doing what he's always been doing. Yeah. I do let me start with you. I'm gonna let you take the lead on this. Then what do you believe he's always been doing? He's that that guy that everybody likes. He and he is very likeable. That is just too cool for school. He does he I think he really doesn't want to be in anybody's tribe, but the pendulum swing so far the other way that he becomes really of. No use to anybody in the end. I think he like many people likes the sound of his own voice. And I think he's re he's unique in the accent that I really don't think he cares about winning or losing their on any level in Washington DC. I think he has he's a man of genuine principles. But I don't think he really cares about what can be done in Washington. DC has no no sense of pragmatism in that regard. So. So I think I actually think he we just got done talking about casick. I think he I think he might primary Trump. I think he just thinks it'll be kind of cool. We'll just have a conversation. He he won't lose any sleep at night. I think he he's he's he's just going to kind of dude. And I mean this like small D dude that big dude like we use it on the show in terms of dude code violations of. This is always what he's done. He's he's he's not really into. Messaging on any level. Now, there's propaganda and there's messaging I tweeted today like I just don't what what is he what heels are you is he willing to die on. How does he care about even making that clear just kind of he's just kind of there at the buffet tasting, and he'll he'll go like what he said on the courts how many weeks ago was that when he said that it was during Kevin. Two months ago, two months ago. Yeah. But is there there there in terms of moving on beyond that I so this is me doing stream of consciousness about him. But I think that's maybe the best way. I think that's what he does. He's just there. He's going to do a stream of consciousness thing. And then I think he's going to run because he thinks that's the best way to do that. And if he wins loses in just get on with his life biggies, the guy survivor who like I don't know ten or whatever weeks into the series. You're like he's still here. I don't know. I thought taunting answer was going to be one hundred percent when you asked them. So you think you you think he's just doing the same thing? He's always been doing. I thought Todd Zinser was going to be in. What is that? I don't know. Because I don't think Ben Sasse knows what he's doing this. But I I mean, we're in the context of him talking about global warming this weekend. I mean, he lives in Nebraska. I mean. If he does primary it's going to be the same result as John casick. But I don't think anybody really knows what Ben's asks is is doing because I don't think Ben's ASO's what he's doing. And he's it's clear. He's not stupid. But at the same time, I think it's also cleared that he just is he's not really fully thinking things through in terms of perception is not really there. There is an art to being a politician, and he's just not very well versed in that art. I think he's thought things through. I just think he's decided he doesn't want to do those things consciously. He doesn't want. What do you think he wants to do? I think he just wants to be Ben Sasse. See that's enough to just be who is that a guy. Who's a nice guy who likes to talk about things in a way, that's not to edgy. But just edgy an you've you've been in politics, so long you've you've met a lot of these kind of guys who just wanted their need it to all the time. Here's what I can tell you. Every time. I've encountered someone I thought was on my side. But I could never really figure out when motivated them or with their endgame was. They weren't. There's never been like there's never a time. They huddle in secret for policy, and then they come out with something better than you thought. It was going to be has can you remember ever having doesn't mean it'll never happen. Okay. But has it ever happened before? No. No. It might happen sometime in the future. But there's never been a time. They've all huddled together down there under that capitol dome in secret and came out with a policy, and you thought how damn this is actually better than I thought it was gonna turn out to be likewise. It's possible bench asked might be the first, but there's never been anybody in my career. I've encountered that when I thought they were on my side. But I couldn't understand what motivated them or what their end game was ended up in the end being on my side. And I bring this up because I got a text from a buddy of mine over the weekend. Who's who's really ticket s? And it's because of the global warming comments that you referenced Erin, all right and. I want to show something to our audience. This is the most up-to-date now. This is Ben Sasse is liberty score at conservative review ninety four percent. I believe I believe that's number two only, Mike Lee. Okay. Ninety four percent. And. I then in looked at his Twitter. I went back two weeks on his Twitter. And I found I would not know this guy was a Senator. Like, I don't know why he's in this office. I don't know. I don't know. Like there's nothing about policy. You know what I'm saying? Nothing is memorial stadium. Selling runs us. Yes. I mean, I don't know why he's a Senator. And there's only the only two things I found that he has talked about politically in the last two weeks, which in today's don't we talk all the time. How we age dog years new cycles that we were melting down about twenty four hours, then see my three months ago in two days. Right. We talk about that all the time. So I think two weeks two weeks wasn't fair ten years ago, but in this environment, don't you think two weeks a pretty good given how fast cycle moves and evolves? And how much goes on is. I want to be as fair as I can I want to be wrong. Okay. But I gotta tell you. I wanted to be wrong about pope Francis. A year ago, and I was telling you, my Spidey sense was tingling mine's been speaking a tingling all along as my Spidey sense. Is it it's Stingl right now. So is two weeks fair enough to just tell me why go there is a fair enough until me in the extreme. Okay. I think it's fair enough. I went back to weeks. You wouldn't always a Senator. I don't know what he did for two weeks, and the only political opinion. I saw him utter was that Trump could have chosen a better AG. Then Matt Whitaker. Oh, and then with this going on and with global warming. Here's the thing. I never see him. Address the concerns. Of conservatives ever. And I don't mean. I don't mean addressing them. Even in the framework that we want or that is the is the dominant talking point we violate the right? The conservative media talking points all the time. Don't we? Yes. Okay. But but we are addressing the concerns. Conservatives have because we're conservatives they may not line up with the partisan tribal Listrik talking points. Or the click Beatty. Trump's always the victim, and he's always been wronged, and he's never ever mala prompt. And he's Cheeto Jesus, we don't wind up with any of that crap. But on a given day, we're talking about many of the same things. Most of the other conservative shows are because we're conservatives predominantly talking to conservatives. We we don't we don't we certainly don't talk about them the way most of the other conservative shows do right. But we largely talking about most of the same things. We're addressing the primary why because we understand your audience. In for you to remain our audience as often as we can we need to address your primary concerns. I don't know who he thinks audiences. I don't know what game he thinks he's playing or if he's playing no game. And so now, we're gonna have this is like the coldest November of all time. It feels like in the mid west. We went out last night to the fan to took the family out to dinner and a movie the win. Here was howling. So bad. Fill like, mid January were even when you get inside. It takes an hour for you to warm back up. You know what I'm saying? And now, we've got we've got in terms of of media narrative, and and access to the culture the number one platform in America cracking down on conservatives. Mr constitutionalist. Donald Trump doesn't understand the constitution. Nothing to say about that. Nothing. But he wants to now speak up in the midst of the colder than a witches nipple November in the mid west. Let's talk global warming. You know, this isn't even Bill Kristol stuff crystals. Never been a conservative crystals. If crystal had been a Senator heat not having ninety four percent. Liberty score guys that's better than Ted Cruz. So I don't I don't understand what what the game is here. I don't even know what comes razor says. Because you could sit there and say this guy's all over the place. But then you listen to him talk. And you know, he's not unstable, you know, so I don't I don't know what's happening here. But we are approaching a time, and maybe are already there. I I'm the last guy to push back on someone for not wanting to join the tribalism. We defy that here all the time. We already have been on the air for fifty one minutes. We've already defied the tribalism already. But ultimately. When does this guy ever, even let's forget conservatives win. Does he addressed the concerns of his constituents? Why would you want him to be a Senator for you in Nebraska? Yeah. That's what I'm that's what I that's why I mentioned that from Nebraska who in the world cares about global warming. And we talked last week about regardless of what your view, the agree with Daniel Horowitz, and Mark Levin that it's jailbreak or the agree with Mike Lee, and and you know, freedom works. This is prison reform, regardless of which side you agree with. Go ask the average person who voted Republican in the for November the sixth and ask them is this the issue you want Republicans to spend their last few hours in the majority tackling. How many would say, yes? Zilch. We'll let me rephrase that how many not getting check from the coke brothers would say, yes. How many I think? Now, we know the answers I needed I needed to clarify that. Okay. So if you're getting a check from the coke brothers answer high. If you're not which is ninety nine point nine nine percent of us, the answer's zero. Okay. Nobody not getting a check from the coke brothers, regardless of what their position on. This is would rather have the Republicans spend time on this then making the tax cuts permanent repeal defending or defunding planned period. Right. Nobody wide. Nobody wanted. Similarly. How many people forget their party? How many Democrats in Nebraska? Outside of those on the faculty at the university of Nebraska. I'm pretty familiar with the state right next door, we go there a lot. I don't think there's too many people in Nebraska or d who are thinking, you know, I kind of want the number one priority of my Senator on November twenty six to be global warming answers fricking small man, so we've gone from. We're not even going to address the issues that matter to conservatives. When are you going to do that? We're not even going to address the issues that matter to my constituents. Oh. What is he doing? That makes perfect sense. In this age is you've always talked. What's the primary idol of this age? It is the self and you can you can still have ninety four percent conservative score with. But ultimately, not be a threat to progressive ISM. And not being is do you think he's going to be kicked off Twitter anytime soon, even with that score ask your we're gone. You bet you it's going to take a while to get to that point. What's going to happen is once once we're gone all the were not like those guys guys. Are we saw this over the weekend some left wing platform? I've never even heard of it. All right had some gave Republican operative. Tim Miller as they're never Trump conservative. He dared utter a conservative opinion, guess what they did his ass. They ran his ass right off that they kicked him off their platform. So when they're done getting rid of us. Yes. The Ben Sasse is of the world are. All gone as well when they're done getting rid of the guys like us. They were not like us guys. They're going next. I promise. Back with our to here. Live on the blaze on demand at crtv. IMC dais. He's todd. That's aaron. For the first time. It is now safe for me to officially say this without fear of backlash here on my own set. Merry christmas. Are we okay now right there -absolutely merry Christmas? Is it safe LEGO Christmas? Is it safe Laurence Olivier? Eight nine hundred thirty three ninety three is the number eight nine hundred thirty three ninety three Steve Steve day dot com is the number or is the Email address that just gave the number. Last name is spill the AC for those of you that are listening on the podcast on itunes, Stitcher. Google play Spotify later on by the way, while you're there if you could hit that subscribe button on your podcast platform. We would appreciate that. Leave us a five star review. If you liked the show don't lie if you don't. But if you do those five star reviews, though subscription numbers when they pile up more people look at that and say, hey, this show looks like it's popular let me give it a shot. So that's how you can help us help reach more people like you can also like us on Facebook. When they're not retroactively banning me for something. I wrote a year ago, and you can follow me on Twitter for now because they haven't made it apparently to my branch of the food chain yet. But I am confident that they will soon arrive at Steve day show. I like how bench? Piero was pushing back today by the way, seeing what he's doing. He's he is he's publishing on his Twitter account. Actual excerpts of a medical books. They can screen capturing pictures pictures. Yeah. So it's the actual screen cap of medical book books science books on gender and sexuality things of that nature and just taking the pictures and putting him on his Twitter account saying, hey, do you get banned from Twitter now for quoting science textbooks? So his is a Twitter following that would hurt if they were to lose that. That's one of the things we'll discuss in the roundtable today. What should be the conservative pushback to what is clear now crackdown? We're beyond canary in the coal mine. Now, the purge is on we will discuss that today at crtv. So to punish Todd for the last few weeks of humbug. I'm going to force him during the final hour of today's show to discuss the topic. He hates the most. The next election cycle. I do. You disdain this. I do. Instant replay or twenty twenty. That's a good question do choice. Yes. Binary choice, which one do you hate the most? I think instant replay. Wow. I do I do. I it's such a transparent fraud. You can kind of respect though, the get off my lawn aspect of, you know, the new fangled technologies technologically. You don't it's not even it's the poor use of the technology. I'm not afraid of technology. But this is why I said at the dude code. We are allowed to dig in deep. We have to respect one another on thing. We dig deeper that is so if you're willing to be a jackwagon on something, but you're gonna hold to that to the to the last dying breath. I've decided that that is price Rudy for me. I'm at the point where that that's instant reply. I'm in I'm okay with that. Now that thing if now you're going to double down, and you're gonna be like, you know, man. Yeah. I didn't get around to watch. I'm gonna like screw you. I can't I respect. There's there is something about not being a joiner, and I don't have to follow along. And I don't need to do that was kind of hoping you'd be ticked off. But I'm still going to do this. Here's the thing though. And I love that we're buddies, but mascot, like seventeen of those meeting that wall. You're only allowed like one. Okay. So Rudy's like your one instant replays. Yours you now can't come back and say the Beatles suck Star Wars movies are bad steak. Isn't that good? Okay. You know what I'm saying? I have to give up the year of the cat now. Well that should've happened. A long long time ago. Like, you're you're allowed your one KOMO Jinlie. A not joining your okay, do it every dude should have that. Ashley just just to show. There's enough vinegar still in the urine. If you know what I mean? So every do should have the one thing that's not bad and probably you should like. But just because just because something needs to be the object of my angst. I'm going with that one. And you're not talking me out of it. So tough cookie, I respect that every every needs something to be unreasonably criminally about yours is instant replay errands is. Rudy rudy. They can't him at Walsh twenty-seven of as. Okay, twenty-seven. Now. The fish gets bigger story. So you can have what I'm wondering what what's mind you think they do. I I'm trying to think if I if I have one same difference is that my thing you. That that that's not it's probably not much enough though. But. Here's the thing. I am so systemically criminally though. Knows like one thing. I'll have to think about that. Maybe my Cur- Mudge about being curmudgeonly. Now, it's getting deep. Yeah. Yeah. Now, we're curmudgeon shower shave about the election. Now, we're really share now. Our now, we're being real. What? Anyway, the twenty twenty election. Yes. I knew you could make that sound good somehow. So I think what is today. Twenty six twenty six I think today, November twenty six almost two full years. Before the twenty twenty election takes place. I think I can tell you right now. What's going to happen in Erin? I want you to save this tape. Okay. All right. Make sure you got it saved and. Now that's gambling. There's going to be enough people around here at the blazin crtv still goalable enough to give us a platform two years from now. Right. But if nothing else when they throw us out of here, make sure you take the tape of this segment with you k because if I'm right? Even if because I'll be I'll we'll all be banned from Facebook and Twitter by that, of course. Okay. Even if I'm right? The dude co does allow me. To completely own and brag about this. If I called my shot this foreign advance, right? Absolutely. Absolutely. Right. And so I'm gonna take full advantage of that. Especially if I'm unemployed it might be all I have left. All right. So I need to explain to you, though, why I think we already know. Into do that. I gotta go back to one of these books over my shoulder here that I wrote in two thousand fourteen rules for patriots. How conservatives can win again. Which was endorsed by Donald Trump. Well, it was although the way it went down was Trump told me to write the endorsement I wanted. I did I send it to Rona his private secretary. And he okayed it and that was the endorsement so I actually wrote my own endorsement from Trump which Trump than said was perfectly fine. I know you like that story. So I I I tell it as often as I can mix it in. But in that book, I laid out a path looking at the twenty twelve results and the two thousand and eight results I laid out a path for how Republican could win the White House in two thousand sixteen. And. There were three facets to it. Number one. They needed a higher turnout. Not percentage you're not gonna do much better percentage wise than what did Romney get like seventy nine percent of white evangelical or something you're not gonna do much better than that. And what I always tell you guys when it comes to elections. It's not about the slice of the pie. It's about the size of the pie. It's not about the percentage. It's about the turnout. Okay. Hillary Clinton still got an overwhelming percentage of black voters, but she didn't get the turnout rock Obama did. So what would you rather have ninety percent if you're Hillary Clinton and the black vote you have to turn out massively. Would you rather have ninety percent of pie that say that big or ninety percent of pie that say that big? What would you rather have the big big pie? Well, she got ninety percent of a pie. This pick ninety percent of a pie that bay amongst white evangelical 's Romney and McCain got seventy percent of a pie that big Trump got seventy percent of a pie that pick. But would you rather have big the big one, right? Okay. So it's not about the percentages. It's about the turn up. And so since white evangelical still remain, the largest and most passionate voting block in the Republican party. They need a mass turnout of that block. Not just the percentage the number the whole number number two gotta win class voters because since World War Two whoever has one middle class voters has won the presidential election with one exception. And that was the infamous Florida recount election. Al Gore one middle class voters by a couple of points and still lost. But to win middle class voters, I pointed out in that book the reform growth talking points. The isn't corporatism cool isn't gonna turn those voters. In every campaign. I've worked on or advised and keep in mind, if I'm working or advising, you you're going to be some form of a committed cultural conservative, otherwise, I'm not getting involved. Okay. And you wouldn't want me involved. If you're not. So our candidates the candidates that I've helped recruit our worked with or for. They've always gotten more pushback because of the GOP being corporatist than the GOP being pro-life. It's not even close, by the way, meaning the amount of doors. They've knocked on with voter was offended at them being pro-life compared to you don't like poor people. You don't like class people. You're one of those fancy fancy cat Republicans. It's not even close guys like ten million to one. Okay. Ten million to one. So via to middle class voters. You're not going to win them with. How big of a tax lien and incentive? Do you think we should give Amazon you're not winning with that that doesn't work even the middle class? People. Get a lot of the jobs that come from that that that doesn't work because the other side's gonna be over here saying they're gonna take away your Medicare. They're taking. So you aren't going to win that argument with them. You're going to need a more populist argument than what the GOP had ran on in the last two cycles with John McCain saying that, you know, shut down my campaign. John McCain was leading the polls right after Labor Day. The banking meltdown happens. He suspense his campaign and signs up for the tarp and gets blown out of the election because he lost middle class voters on the tarp class voters, eighty tarp. Scott Rasmussen when he used to run Rasmussen polling. He doesn't now GOP she'll firm when Scott Rasmussen was told me that the the most unpopular policy. He's ever polled in his entire career was tarp by far it was the least popular thing. Why? Well, most Americans make less than seventy five thousand dollars a year. And since that's most people who vote. I don't know why they'd be motivated to vote vote on. I think Lehman Brothers is too big to fail. What I'm saying? I mean when you're living paycheck to paycheck. When you're the earth and family losing your health insurance at your previous job in joining a for a time. You guys was at meta share one of those healthcare, basically. Yeah. How do you feel about bailing out? There's fell you feel about that that big on. It doesn't give you a warm fuzzy never that's not. That's not your get out the vote. Make you run to the polls that one no in fact, and I think this is often taken for granted. It's the kind of thing that people like me would John McCain something you'll bring down the whole system. We're kinda like kinda like to see what it looks like bring system because the system is why that's the systems. Why I don't have a safety right now. Damn system. Yeah. You can take your system and shove it, I'm fine. I'm fine. If it if it blows up, right? That's what you're thinking. Right. And you know. Every opportunity Romney had to appeal. To a middle class base. He put it on whether it was issues wouldn't even chicken sandwich. We've talked about that. So you're gonna need a more populist style of message. Okay. Conservative economic messaging doesn't sell the reason cell is because Republicans are credible. It's all twenty years ago, balanced budgets stuff sole twenty years ago. But people have given Republicans power so often now that they know basically all the Republicans are going to do is give the money to a different group of special interests than the Democrats will that the reform and growth talking points of nineteen Eighty-nine don't play anymore. You have to. That's why that's why Trump was never going to be damaged by we need massive infrastructure programs 'cause most people are used to Republicans spending much the same if not more money than Democrats. So they were actually anxious to hear Republicans saves going to spend the money on them for change rather than their Wall Street buddies. Hey, that's a new approach pretty tough to have credibility with your base when you continue to fund Planned Parenthood, but don't have enough money to build a wall. So and then there's that. Yes. The third thing I pointed out is they had to win tot Catholic voters. Since Roe versus Wade Republican is when the White House without Catholic voters. And one of the things I'll go into my next book that comes out in January truth bombs, which by the way is available right now on Amazon if you're looking for a Christmas gift that comes out January the fifteenth preordered, you can pre-order it right now. Yes, this is a shameless plug, but that's how we all get paid around here folks like you buying books, and hopefully, I wrote one you think is worthy everything January fifteenth. It's due out. You can get your you can get your preorder right now at Amazon dot com. And and I go in that book because I had I had you with me the whole way I think I did a pretty thorough job of explaining why this is such a vital issue for Republicans with Catholic voters and with the history of the Catholic vote was before and since Roe v. Wade, okay. But since Roe v. Wade no Republican is when the White House without winning the Catholic vote. Now, what I wrote in my two thousand fourteen book, you guys have heard me say before I'm not really. In a rigid. Thinker all that often. I just take a what what people have already established as really good ideas in help hone them. In message them in ways that might meet a new audience. That's kind of what I do. Right. And I've used the analogy before it's like the commercials when Todd and I were kids we don't make the products you buy buy we make the products you buy better. That's kind of what I'm good at. I'm good at enhancing your message on something. You originally thought of every now, and then we'll have an original thought. But most of the time my thinking is in line with how to make other people's original thoughts appeal to more people. So this this. Three pronged approach to a Republican winning the White House in two thousand sixteen. Wasn't radical. It wasn't revolutionary. All I did. No, wait for it. Ready for this show? You ready for this blow your minds here? Guys. You guys ready got it? But if your mind to be loners, always here's what I did. Back. And I looked. At what the coalition of every success Republican presidential candidate in the last generation was. And suggested. For Republicans to win. They needed to rebuild that coalition. What do you think? Well, that's not new coke. But it'll do it's like my favorite gift the guy when he goes. Once more in Spanish place. Yes. SMRT smart is my kids you say when they were little and you gotta get up pretty early slipped one past Mr. days. That's right guys. How you like that? My big idea was. Do what one four? So don't try to win in the way that you want to win do what actually wins? Yes. Ed nailed it the self doesn't want to do them. And that's what I was talking to vest color, man in the business for nothing Bob that was my point was Sasso. It's not really a this is what you and your. You're clearly have your Mojo back. You mentioned this last week. The combination of how you're doing with your your sports stuff. And the fact that you've got this last election, right? I mean, you are in the zone, but you just about listen, this is I'm just telling you one plus one equals two that people hate one plus one two they know like there. Oh, no. But this is how I'd like it teacher. We're all NAS ticks. Yes. They're all be some secret formula some secret sauce. Now, there's not there's there's not. Here's the problem though, you touched on it. In sort of sorted Aaron. They don't want to do this. There's a little bit. I love my coach Jim Harbaugh. He's a Greek coach better than. Eighty some odd percent of the coaches out there. And then there's just something that happens the third Saturday in November every year like what happens to your coach Andy Reid. He's a great coach it's better than eighty. But there's three weeks in January where something happens and. Winter's coming. Sea urban Meyer and Bill Belichick. Don't care. They're happy to be twenty-seven seventeen forty five forty two. Because they're just happy to beat you. There's great coaches that will do whatever it takes to win. And it can look anyway, it has to look provided where the guy at the end that has one point head of you. That's all about us to me. I think your guy Paul Chryst is another one of these kind of guys. Okay. But then there's other guys that love to win. But they love to win a certain way is not that they're not competitive, and it's not that they're not dumb. They're married to a paradigm. They're married to a process and within that paradigm and process, you're probably not going to beat them. But if you start making them color outside the lines and have to adjust. Pretty good shot. Now, the problem is most of the time they win because they could enforce their Mojo on you. But then there's those ten or fifteen percent of games you have to win to be the champion. When you're not able to enforce impose your Mojo on someone else because they hit back. And that's when they struggle because they don't have a counter. I don't I don't get to bully. You you punch back. Okay. Well, that's that was my that was what I had a bully when I don't bully you. Then I don't know how to win. Nick Sabin switched his defensive scheme twice. He's on his third different offense. He's got a new offense coordinator pretty much every year. He's been there. He's only been there eleven years and they're running. They've run the third style of offense. They've been running in the eleven years he's been there. And here's the thing. If anybody doesn't have to change its him because he gets the best players every year it even savings like. Yeah. You know, what I like even more winning my way? Win. Yeah. I like winning my way. But you know, what's even better than winning my way? Kristen Harbaugh are good buddies. By the way, they've been friends for years. I just think they're out of the school of I like winning my way are the guys are just like. The Republican party is in the school of we like winning our way they long they want to win. They need to win their way. And their way is we we get we promised the least amount to our base. So that we don't have to defend their talking points in the media that we don't really believe. Anyway. And then we don't oh them anything when we get elected. So that we don't end up doing something like read my lips. No new taxes. Oh, I just did the biggest tax increase of all time or fifty one votes to to get rid of ObamaCare. And now we have total power, and we don't because I know those things create backlashes so they want to win Mitch McConnell would rather have the bigger office. But if if it requires getting outside of this box. Happen. Now along comes at Trump. Trump to win it. Here's a it. Looks like if it looks like a blonde. If it's protected or unprotected sex or the porn star. If it looks like a brunette. If it looks like an heiress. If it looks like a tower looks like a hotel, it looks like a plane, if it looks like a golf course. Bankruptcy because city blew up on me. It doesn't matter. Does it matter? Trump doesn't care. Trump likes winners. And as long as if I can declare winning. Giving the Saudis their way or dropping the hammer on them. There's no ideology there. Then the ideology of win. That is Nick savings ideology that is urban Meyer's ideology that is Bill Belichick's ideology. I've got the greatest quarterback of all time. Bill Belichick says and some weeks. I only wanted to throw fifteen times. Most coaches, even great ones would say, why would you not have Tom Brady throw forty times? If you feel like you're limiting yourself not letting them early but village, I like I like win it. And right now, we need to win this game thirteen to ten. So Brady's gonna throw sixteen times next week. I might need fifty times. And if I do will since how Trump roles. Trump just wants to with. He's ruthless in the outcome. Not in the process. The Republicans their ruthlessness is not in the outcome. But the process. And this is why they did everything they could to nominate McCain in the oh eight in twelve cycles to have control of the process. One of the smartest things I've ever. I wish I could remember who wrote this. There was a conservative writer who wrote in two thousand twelve one of these smartest things I've ever seen anybody right in my career. He said the Republican party would rather lose elections to Democrats then lose control of the process to conservatives. Yep. Holy buckets. Is that? That's on on a on a stone tablet for Mount Sinai. That's so good that is the Republican party. And that is why they fight you and I- harder in primaries. And they fight them. And that's why there's entire organizations like natural national right to life. Who is completely designed just to lie to you. Yes. About their politicians. So that when they need when they need your vote, they can rattle the zipper and get you to come to the polls. Yes. See they don't hate Trump. Oh, they find him deplorable in distasteful, but he's written a lot of them. Big checks to really hate. You is base. And they can't stand the fact that he messages to you to get what he wants because one of the other smartest things I've ever heard in politics. This came from Daniel Horowitz, our conservative review, and he wants told me that Democrats inspire their base to get what they want. Republicans conspire gets their pace to get what they want. That's cash money, homey outrage right there. Right. So you need to know this. Because the Republicans weren't willing. John talked about Ben Sasse last hour. That's the campaign. John McCain ramp. He was more interested in making sure you did not that you were you needed to know you were a racist. If he used Brock Obama's middle name when addressing him you're racist. Then he was an actually pointing out Brock Obama was mentored for twenty years by guy who was an actual racist. That's the point. Millions of people lined up every Chick-fil-A in in the western hemisphere, and probably a lot of them actually are totally fine with gay marriage. They just didn't like the principle that we people's businesses down. We don't agree with their moral values. Mitt Romney is silent all day long instead of handing out voter registration cards and political runs to him that day and says, what's your view of this huge backlash? That's not a part of my campaign. But let me tell you about reform growth. That's why. Then the Romney campaign symbol this massive voter fraud detection bureaucracy called orca. And it was it was state millions were spent and they were going to go after voter fraud to make sure that they didn't that didn't happen to them. And just sat there doormen on election day did nothing, but Ryan's Priebus at the RNC a couple days after the election did send out a press release bragging that the Republican party still had millions of dollars left in the Bank from an election. They lost. Imagine your team the day after the Super Bowl head coach comes out and says guys got a really clean injury report. Right now, why the hell do you carry? You just lost the Super Bowl. You don't care who's hurt. There's not a game for nine months. Who cares? How much money in the Bank from an election. You lost? Who brags about that? So all you told me was you just let bullets in the chamber. This wasn't revolutionary. It just required. A candidate who is willing to do this. Trump was willing to do this. And here's here's you want. Your mind really blown if any of the other sixteen candidates that formally announced in two thousand sixteen at won the nomination any of them. They would have needed the exact same coalition too. Trump when the same way any of them were going to win. See because there's a big fallacy right now, you're being fed. And I think most of you probably believe. And I'm gonna blow this fallacy up. Come back. So the vast majority of folks that are watching or listening to us live on the blaze right now, we're going to be watching us today on demand at crtv or listening to a podcast, and I tune Stitcher Google play Spotify it cetera. The vast majority of all of you, no matter how you're accessing our show today. The biggest investment the you're gonna make in your lives is your home. Maybe the possible exception of life insurance plan, which in the event, it kicks in you won't of course, be able to take advantage of. So it would seem to make sense now that all of our home titles are online and more easily accessible to predators that this would be the new criminal trend, and these are people, you know, when they're looking to the've your home title. It's not because they're charitable, and they're gonna pay your mortgage for you. It's because they're going to liquidate the equity, which is the real value. And then when you go. Get that. He lock are. When you go to get that second or third mortgage, you go to sell your home, and that equity is gone surprise, it's because of this new trend sweeping the criminal underworld guys it's called home title fraud. Now, if you've got an identity fraud company that looks after somebody trying to your identity home, title doesn't apply? That's why you want to take a look at home title for pennies a day. They'll put a virtual barrier around your home's title, the instant they detect any sinister activity at all they're on it to help shut it down. And let me tell you who's really vulnerable here. If you've got retirees or your one aby, but if you're listening to us right now chances are you're somewhat technically savvy, but you know, a lot of us. It's funny when the new video game systems come out, it's odd, suddenly my son who's twelve who's going to be twelve in February like instantly is better at all this stuff than I am just happens as we get older. We don't adjust to the new technology as much as the younger generations to so retirees because their homes tend to be of more value and have more equity. They're usually paid way down if not completely off are especially vulnerable here. You wanna take a look at home title because your home might already be vulnerable. You can right now get a free title scan. And report if you sign up today at home, title, LOC dot com, that's home at title, LOC dot com. All right back to why. I think I already know what's going to happen in two thousand twenty. But first we had to figure out why what happened in two thousand sixteen happened in two thousand sixteen but Steve you might say I thought Trump went twenty sixteen because you got all these new blue-collar crossover voters in Pennsylvania, and Michigan and Wisconsin. That helped him win in two thousand sixteen. But see there's a there's a fallacy out there. And it's being peddled by people who don't wanna listen to what the American people said, you know, the reason I kept telling Todd I was not gonna make any projections. This year is remember what I said all along. I'm not sure if my model is broken or if I've just I just read the electorate wrong, and I'm going to let them tell me what I should think. Right. I was going to let the electorate tell me, what did they changed? Not. They haven't changed. See the reason I can't speak for why Nate silver was wrong or the New York Times. Upshot was wrong. I can speak for why I was wrong. I was wrong because I bought into this fallacy that Trump. Was the paradigm change? No, he wasn't the reason. I bought into it is because he violated all these norms groping comments that one Mexican judge. You know, we I thought that mocking a disabled reporter I thought because he had violated all these norms. The that the metric changed didn't didn't make Hillary Clinton any more popular or any or any more like. He didn't change anything. He reset the board as it was. He was not the the paradigm shift. It's just most of the analysts work in the mainstream or legacy or liberal media. And so you don't see it because they're convicting about triple day. And they like Obama personally or his politics or both. So they don't wanna see it. But here's the thing. We've learned okay? This is the most important thing. I'm going to say in this hour. Donald Trump was not the paradigm shift. Brock Obama was. Donald Trump was not the paradigm shift. Barack Obama was Brock Obama won Indiana. Something a democrat had not done. Pre. Eisenhower. He won North Carolina. Something a democrat not done. Pre. Eisenhower. He turned Virginia into a swing state something that hadn't happened since reconstruction. He was the paradigm shift. Yes, he won the traditional we now believe why do we now think Virginia Ohio and Florida are the three big swing states. We didn't believe that in two thousand and we had the Florida recount we had two big swing states. Now there were other secondary swing states, Nevada, Colorado. But. Before Aaron became a age. What were we always told the two big swing states dot Florida and Ohio? Now, it's three Florida Ohio in Virginia. It wasn't always three it became three. Obama turn Virginia into a swing state. It'd been fairly reliable Republican state almost all of our lives until labata. It's just the guys in legacy media wanna believe that the world is they see it is the world. And so they don't wanna believe Obama is outside of the mainstream of most of America. But he was. Trump just put the board back to where it was before. If Trump had not reclaimed North Carolina. Ohio in Florida. He could've still won Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan still would've lost the election. Pennsylvania, wisconsin. And Michigan don't matter. If Trump doesn't win North Carolina, Florida No-ho. Another words. Trump won this same way anybody else. The Republicans were gonna nominate had to run. Something you've heard me say already on this show. Your hear me say it a lot between now and election day twenty twenty. Because the frosting of the cake taste different. Doesn't mean the cake has changed. If I buy a cake mix, and it's chocolate, and I put Carmel frosting on the cake. Is it a caramel cake? Todd, no know what kind of cake is it talk. It's still a chocolate cake. And the sense of the cake is not any different. Trump didn't change anything. That's the lie. Obama did. Trump won the same way. Any other Republican was gonna have to win hired turn out of white evangelical wind Catholics win middle class voters bring North Carolina Florida and Ohio back into the fold now that wouldn't have gotten him to to seventy but we would have had the same conversation that he's got to pick off a Colorado, a Pennsylvania. He's got to pick off somewhere else. Right. But if he doesn't do that it's a little bit. Like, it doesn't matter. How you play in the final four. If you don't win your regional got to get out of the first and second weekend. I remember when you guys be Kentucky. Yes, they run defeated the greatest team ever where they're going to be better than the seventy six hoosiers. Right. Here's a problem. You got to actually get to the championship game. I if you don't beat those plucky badgers. None of this matters for three months, right? That's what I'm talking about. Trump won the same way. Any other Republican nominated was going to have to win. He's not the paradigm shift. Obama was. Obama was the one that altered the map not Trump. We even saw this play out in two thousand eighteen member. I started to say the last few months of the election. I'm not gonna go on the record. I'm gonna keep my word. But I'm starting to sense that we're going to sit here the day after the election. We'll get the same results. We should have predicted January one. Democrats win the house because there's too many retirements districts that Hillary won and Republicans are gonna hold on if not gain a cedar three in the Senate because there's too many states with open contest in states, Trump one, right? We talked a lot about that. The last few months, we got up the next day after the election. What did we say? Exactly that don't believe anybody telling you the map is changed. Trump is changed the game. He didn't do any of that. Donald Trump won the same way. Any other Republican was going to have to win Trump's personality? The frosting on the cake is different. And if you put a strong frosting on something it might cause people who might otherwise like your cake, not to try it. Okay. That's true. I could argue that smooth out some rough edges. Trump would have won far more convincingly. He left votes on the table. He should've won by more could make that argument cake doesn't change still the same Kate. The American electorate is the cake. They haven't changed. The candidates are the frosting. That's what changes. So here's what's going to happen in two thousand twenty unless Bob Muller comes back with I have this uproot or film of. Vladimir Putin injecting heroin into Donald Trump's feigns. Or there's something none of us would want like another nine eleven, okay. Barring one of those two kinds of events. Here's what's going to happen on election day, twenty twenty. Pardon me, the Democrats nominate a likable inspirational figure, you know. Within political record, not likeable inspirational figure within political record is that reminds of anybody you can think of Obama. They nominate somebody like that a likable inspirational candidate, why a thin political record because Trump will not shy away from the culture where issues that the McCain's in Romney's didn't wanna touch with a ninety seven thousand foot pole. Trump's in for culture, war issues, guys. He's looking for him. Why? Because Romney and McCain wanted to be president. You don't get to where Romney and McCain did in life. If you're not competitive, but they're my Jim Harbaugh. They want to win in this box. Trump wants to win every box. Doesn't matter. Does. It doesn't matter. If it's a box. He's fine of it's a hexagon octagon rectangle mangle sh- medium. He doesn't care as long as he's the one at the end with the finger in the air. Like Joe name running off the field and Super Bowl three. That's all. He cares about. And if winning the White House requires him to culture war the poop out of Elizabeth Warren. I can promise you. He's gonna trademark FOCA hana's dot com and have it directed to her official campaign website, guys. I can promise you where Mitt Romney would stand up and say on FOX to Chris Wallace on a Sunday. I'm really disappointed at Rush Limbaugh uses those folk Hanis jokes, and we decided to be above that tell me I'm wrong. No, he'll do whatever it takes to win. He needs material though, because he's not likeable on his own because the frosting is strong. Trump is like a chocolate cake. With like. Ah Lim burger cheese frosting on it. Okay. It's an acquired taste. All right. It's still a chocolate cake frosting, though, you're like I can only take a little bit of that. So he needs a foil. He needs to be able to say better than Hillary better than folk on us better than Camila Harris better than Spartacus he needs that. Better than little little Marco better than lying, Ted better than low energy, Jeb. That's what Trump needs. But Han now, Hannam inspirational likable candidate who begins with way, high positives and favorables so they never have to get in the mud with Trump. I think they will win regardless of what the economy is the price of gases with the job rate is. If the Democrats nominated likable inspirational candidate, give me some names, I'll give you some Michelle Obama Oprah Winfrey. Progressive progressive figure in corporate America, who's not anti-capitalist. Jeff Bezos, Bob under-, Mark Cuban something like that. I think a win. If they nominate one of these elected officials who has a record, especially once we're on the record on the bread cavenaugh thing. Like, Kamala, Harris Spartacus, they're gonna lose. Because Donald Trump's gonna do them like he did the NFL. And but he's gonna do worse. He's going to do with the with the church design Wycliffe like he's going to he's going to burn them at the stake. And then dig up the remains and light him on fire again like right before election day. Okay. Toss him into the river. And then toss him into the river. Yeah. Okay. He needs that he wants. That's why John casick running is the perfect foil for him. It's gonna let Trump while while the Republicans route here caving on everything congress he's going to be out here. Running hard right up against John k six fake virtue, signaling Perot clutching Republican republicanism. Everybody hates hindrance who's a figure almost nobody likes anymore. Either. Perfect foil for him. He's John cases could Dr favorables up. If I didn't know any better. I think John casick was a double agent here. Because this is the perfect remedy give Trump of foil for the next four months while the Democrats over here, ripping each other's lungs out. No, I hate the Christians more white males more than you promise. You no one hates white men. More than me. I promise you burn down the church while they're all doing that. For the next six months. Trump's going to be over here club in John casick little baby seals on National Geographic channel in those Greenpeace propaganda propaganda films. Perfect perfect strategy. They need they need someone who's a political outsider. Who's likable inspirational with very thin political credentials to attack? Anybody who has a certified will record particularly being on the record in the Brett cavenaugh thing of. Yeah. I do think the guy was a gang rapist. What day was that? Again in nineteen eighty two that happened those guys he's gonna fry them. And it's gonna help him those because those kinds of candidates will help Trump message to white evangelical 's Catholics Todd goes to Costa mass with who'd love excuse to vote democrat, how many of the people in your parish would love that excuse many. But the problem is when things like Brett cavenaugh happen or peddling baby parts, suddenly they're like, yeah. I can't. Hope to mass. That's what happens to he's gonna draw. The he's that's why Trump the number one constituency group, according to the or the polls were before election day and on election day. Do you know who Trump over performed with more than anybody else? Catholics. He was losing them in every poll the whole year he won by nine on election day. And then middle class voters. They don't care about the culture war issues by in large. They don't most of them. Don't feel real welcome. Where I go to church or at the cow, Berkeley faculty meeting. They just want to know is my house gotta be worth more next year. And we'll have job. He's going to win those voters again against those kinds of candidates, but against an Oprah. I guess to Michelle Obama a bee's OSA Cuban somebody we can project our hopes in and and worldly desires upon he will be in trouble against that kind of candidate. Now, Mark the date, and we'll look at this again, two years. From now, gentlemen, your final thoughts on that. Do just favorability ratings is that what we're using. Okay. Yeah. I I don't I don't that's what happened with Barack Obama. I mean, there are so I I remember coming into I was still in high school when when he was elected, and I remember coming in to do orchestra or something and some of the a few of the people who had turned eighteen, but we're still in high school were relaying their votes for Barack Obama. And and describing just I just feel good it. You're absolutely right. Somebody who people can just project because that's aside from binary choice idolatry. That's basically what we do nowadays. That's the second. Biggest idol just self rejection just projecting. Whatever makes you feel good. That's that's going to be the Healy's. He'll for anybody who the Republicans nominate if the Democrats put somebody like that, you know, it was just late last week when I was talking about Barack Obama. And and when he was stammering through that speech. He gave. An ended with him. Who did he throw under the bus some, mama? Mom, Yami issues racists. He was just kind of searching. He's not some great linguist. He's not I and this all makes Steve's point while he was the paradigm shift. It's not because he was that unique. He just gave total depravity the package. It was safe to jump into at the moment. I mean, they're still warning signs. This is Romans one stuff. I mean, you're made to know you, it's all around you you you can see right? You can see wrong and Barack Obama suddenly gave more people a chance to jump in the fool the pool the full there. There's some truth for you is forty year, but it felt good to jump into Barack Obama. And that's the point you're making. If it feel Donald Trump did not make in any way. Way eliminate that or negated. He just kinda put a time out on it. Let us know what you think about what we think. Steve. It's days dot com is Email address on Facebook.

My normal it hasn't really changed mine. Either I'm going to be on it as mild Jim. Thanks Jim Exact. Same Jim and currently I'm going to have to figure out something to do with my hair because it's getting to the point where I can't I can't really keep it up too much more in the style. I usually do cut it. D- please don't shave it either. No I can't touch until quarantine so I have to figure out what I'm GonNa like style. It is how you guys because I could absolutely shave head and I'd look fine that challenge all right. Give me a second please like it just it would never grow back. I'd be bald. I'd benefits of not having face. It's you don't have this moment to moment here with your girl at fourteen beard blue like like just letting are just shaved yesterday. But he's starting Cam. He's one day and I'm not going to be trained Lake Christian. I Trim there's no point in clean-shaven he's just going to grow back and also I don't really I don't know okay. This doesn't make sense to anyone but me but the more you save it the fast it'll go back right no rumor. I've heard it's like proving to be like I. I always believe that too but evidently like very recently it's been debunked apparently doesn't do anything. I mean there's no I look stupid when I fully shave so I'm not GonNa do that regard. I looked like a baby. I'll see when I grow up my facial hair that looked like the kid in fifth grade who at puberty just a little. You just kind of has like little trickles everywhere. Every Reality Reality. Is You have to really work on getting a beard in the first place. I- FRUIT THE AD fiasco work on that thing for like a year more than a year to get to the Viking. He is now. I wished reads. It is like what I see an old video of yours and you. Don't Nick Really Weird Amaze me look makes me sick plus. I tried that like I tried growing it out. Yeah it was He was just like September twenty eighteen months after I was Started working out is September October. If I'm GonNa get I gotta now. It's just one day like I just hadn't bothered to shave awhile start and I was like wow. This is like the most because usually I just didn't do it because it was never full enough or didn't connect but I let it go a little bit and I noticed like wait a second like this is the kind of work as it used to connect to your so. I was like all right. I'll give it like I'll give it until like no shave November and November's like it's come together screw it and I just kept it. Sounds okay this is GonNa be a stupid question? Because I can't picture your face for some reason. Do you have the part where it goes like this end this? So it's like around your mouth to okay. I just couldn't remember. I remember. It was just the bottom and you didn't have no mustache connect okay. I think he's connector. Pull off the non connection. If I didn't shave for a month dude I looked like a frigging Gremlin. I grow like the little like weird straight ones down here my bag. I hate the well. The good news is the reason to grow stuff out for a long time. Because I I have like a little bald spot under my Chin and like everything would grow. Accept this little patch under my Chin. But now everything's grown out around it. You can't tell anymore. Oh but it's still there but yeah I still have like a little like it's it's starting to finally grow in but it's not as much but you can't really tell you hide stuff in there. That's kind of tight not an office and like another world. Keep like an emergency band-aiding there and like when chicken badge. Wait it out. Oh yeah this is a little pocket cash or something. We'll pick me up. I will say though in In in this quarantine life actually today since we mentioned it about disrupting their normal daily lives. I got the first pump in since Since I started self quarantine because I self quarantined like two weeks before the official quarantine came out Christian. Roll like as to be that bad right now. The whole time here the whole time you were you were whistle blower house ahead of them amount now. We're anyway usually when you got serious about it. That's when it made me like self quarantine so it's been a month but after a couple of weeks and then the official quarantine everything is like. I don't know how long this is going to be so I got some equipment and put it in my garage and everything finally showed up yesterday and I got my stuff so today I did Chest try with some cardio and it was amazing. Can I need Mr Fruit pump videos? Maybe I- unsure. Let's pump. That's all want one pump trump. Because then I could get like in like maybe like I get my pump vicariously through you get that works. I wish otherwise I'd be I'd be the strongest man world So yeah that just felt good. So that's like helped return a little normality to the quarantine. Scheduled court teen is over. Are we gonNA? Are you going to not go to the gym anymore and just like no from home? I'll still go to the gym. Well the reason I never originally wanted a home gym was because then I would never leave. The House like the gym was the one thing guaranteed to get me out of the house. The half shows you sunlight and I needed. Yeah so now it'll be there because I didn't get to watt like I don't have any fancy machines have a half rack and dumbbells but that's enough to do almost every freeway. Yeah that's enough to do most freeway at stopping foreign. Do other cardio things or machines where you know maybe freeway doesn't effective and that thing. Yeah what is that called like your go like this? But you're not running but you're like pseudo running oh the elliptical people running yet they do that because of my resist. Ra- my knee problems all. That's right which so when I went to look gym equipment. Okay this is crazy all right. Well I'll look at like home gym places and I found one place like we serve the most places for gym equipment in North America. Okay three yeah. It's gotta be like kicking stuff out. I'm like Oh wow that I've seen that before. Oh that's my jam. So like picking stuff up. This is great. I gotTA GO. I gotTA check out. And it's like eight thousand dollars and I'm like and then but I was like I said that's a why hold on let me check and I go to the checkout and then they go Like enter your address for estimated shipping. How much does shipping was? I thought that was like with Shinno. That was just the equipment so just guess how much shipping was gone at least like to at least two thousand for shipping at one in front of that. And you're correct. Y'All thousand twelve thousand dollars for shipping. And there wasn't anything that was that was the only option. It was like three day freight only option. You had twelve thousand dollars. Why no idea how accord so I said all right fine. Yeah that's fair Let me call up a guy. He's like. Yeah it's now so I I go. Okay hold on. I go over to Amazon. Get pretty much everything I wanted to It came out to a fourth of the price originally and everything was free shipping. So Oh wow. Free Shipping Amazon prime. So I had to wait like a couple of weeks on some stuff But Yeah it went from twelve thousand shipping to nothing and eight thousand of equipment to like I WANNA say like twenty five hundred which is still a good bit but honestly for everything that I got a guy like higher quality stuff. I'm good I can't put a price on getting a good pop like what it does for your day and certainly put a price on it. Two thousand five hundred dollars. I think most people could certainly. In fact you did put a price on and But now always have it plus like If I have a busier day or something this way I can just go right down there. Get a pump in for that day if I need to or I've never had it before because of the elliptical I can do like fashion cardio in the mornings now and stuff which I was never. I never wanted to go to the gym for a separate Cardiova- Time but now I can fasting like doing cardio on an empty semi. Yeah Oh you did do cardio. You don't work out on heavy stomach before no. Oh No. That's all ever worked with is an empty stomach. If I work with a full stomach did as well you want to be full but you also empty especially when I. I do some heavier stuff just like pass out you need. You need some fuel. But anyway that's part of the quarantine that's how that's going and this review of the podcast is going pretty well. We have one from no. Don't play okay boomer episode okay from Vin True. He writes US neither. Half Stars think very much. That's another half. These guys are not your source for insight into geopolitics. And you'RE NOT GONNA get any useful stock tips. But they are hilarious. Relatable honest thanks. What is Rhode Geopolitics? Geo Seeming like like geo- geographical. Oh Yeah I was just I thought it was like g not no one for but right above it too because we're moving up in the world we have jet. Hecker with a twelve star reviews. Go go yeah well star home. Mike is this guy gives twelve so I got it. Yeah it's just this podcast. I have been looking for the perfect in between on topic. News and gaming would recommend anyone who wanted to have a good time. Help me get through work as well. Thank you Dream Team. Thank you Chad. Hecker you're so funny as when when fruits was talking about what he wanted for the new podcast he was like. I don't really I don't really want to do like current events or like you know like what's the now I kind of what you WanNa do something that you know like off topic but we're still talking about subjects and the podcast is quickly become the exact opposite of that gave up at this point. What are we good? I am shocked for one. I'm Cheryl originally wanted to do like a more like a guest kind of podcast but that just doesn't work one when you're not all in person in two when there's when the guest is outnumbered like normally you see it where it's like one on ones or more maybe sometimes too but it just didn't really make sense and then I was like all right. This is what we do best. We are well and then it'd be like well I want to add. Guess on here. But then it's like how do we do that? I want to. I mean it worked at the summit because we're all there. Yeah they were practically just a part of it otherwise it would be awkward like three people throwing questions whatever like but and then and then they kind of like. Do I belong here wind. Why do I tie Zeno? Really? I don't want like a Webcam podcast. Like I don't WanNa just had like old. Let's get by not by choice but by necessity So that's how are coronal life going and before we hop into it? Let's give a big thanks to our patron Producers stands way have Dustin wire itch Greenpeace? Benjamin Thomas Wayne and g Brandon Smith in seven Falco Maria Brenes and GP Hash. And of course we got our our big boys the stag big sexy Omega Art. Save you try not to sneeze or you're trying to sneeze a canal bright light. I'm not I don't have any. That's why your window. You want to know your windows bright right behind you like my Webcam makes that look way brighter than around the gates ahead. It's a window. Well how come out of that. Looks like a I'm Josh. I wish my office was in the basement. 'cause I tell you sweating buckets out did when I moved back like Cities where I'm moving in the Bait. I was like my offices in the basement was like that's not. That's how it is on the basement so I'm just GonNa take my office and move down So Nice in the basement. That's what I love about the basement. It's so cold down here. I always remember when I was a kid. I was like if I ever worked from home because again. This is just very works when we. I always remember this when I started working from. I was like okay actually on the lowest floor of to work and always in my head every single time I think about this. He rises he rises. He rises things ahead. Like oh if the bottom of the bottles were always colder than the top floor. And I don't know I feel like I have like mental trauma. Possibly from like one of my teachers were telling you. Oh yeah he rises and every time I think about something related to homes. I JUST. I'm just like Oh here is what what what what the. Fuck. What is okay he rises. That's like a dad like things to always stuck in my head. I but it's always has been so whatever I think about. Oh working from home groundfloor. He rises prices pro man. I'm ever wanted to be in the basement so bad like before like I had to sleep in an unfinished basement for. I think like five months while my dad was finishing it because I wanted to be in the basement so badly I had to play. Hail three in an unfinished basement for three years. Yeah it was dusty dark Dank and cold and I loved it and echo easily Mike. You'd echo through the whole. How well I mean at that point it does. Those mics are so bad. It no matter where you were what you have are like. I don't know looking back at those default three sixty Mike's with the one little styrofoam earpiece connect. Yeah to the front with just like the most garbage. I don't know how you could even hear people I don't know and I remember the day. Yeah I remember the day for Christmas. My like big president was Is like low end turtle beaches but to me going from the fault. Three Sixty Mike. I remember putting that on and hearing footsteps and be like. Oh my God like I was. I remember I was on the top of narrows bridge and I just heard someone like walking around the barrier. Oh my God this is it. I'm going melges. Like gaming. Is like Assistant Gamers? Mike and then you talked into your microphone and you could hear the rockies play by play. Oh my God dude. That was a whole other thing. That actually wasn't those headphones. When I got astro well it wasn't. It's when I saved up and got myself astros like two years later or something and that's when I was obviously that's when I was like all right now. I'm g you know like Dr Peppers by the boys do at Dr Peppers back to come to my house. I'm about to get that that gaming gaming room makeover. I'm winning sweepstake. I'm GONNA go see. T squared boy is. We hang out with straight ripping bro as can be sick anyway. I was waiting. I got the Astros. Finally and then we'll and behold what ended up happening was what exactly rob say I would. Would we just talk in the microphone? And while I was talking in the back just your sports radio nine times out of ten. It was like Someone Casting Baseball rockies. Yeah I was like. I wish it was just like a normal radio but it's baseball's like you're pissing me off like a all these things for it to be took me so long to realize too because I'd be talking. Someone goes somewhere listening. Someone like watching baseball and I don't hear anything so it what are you talking about? And then like it took like a couple of weeks until somebody that what is that. Oh my gosh my mic and and emailed after. They had no fix for me. That was the last time you used Astros fans. I'm pretty sure you and I use astros for the same reasons. Casinos Bro Astros wave. And what did we do? We followed our God. We followed our God. Well then I need to fall. Need to follow into the The housing market. Although not now now I wonder how he's doing right now because apparently use because for those that don't know obviously balloon. I know 'cause we're stand but areas are not Harry House Seniors last upload. Yeah she knew. Last episode was over a year ago. Now it's been a while it's been two years. Yeah it might. It's getting close. He just stopped uploading and there's like he hasn't made a video sensors no announcement. Nothing happened. He didn't die but essentially he was just like I'm Kinda over it. Apparently and now he just manages properties and rents them out and makes money that way. And you just chilling so for him. I feel like that's what I mean. Property is like the easiest way because so few people have the money to actually invest in property. So it's just kind of like yeah just kind of by some property and rent it out Like airbnb those kind of things. Yeah I mean if you're lucky enough to amass the money to own property than like you get more grabbed. Here's more money you want money. Here's more money I mean that's I mean that's how many worked you can't get more without investing more. May You gotta you gotTa play. That turned market. You don't those old like three sixty stores arriving of like being in the basement. Did you ever play when it was like? You're not supposed to be up at this time of players so like you playing since you're in the basement you hear stuff like you go. I remember I would go and then like I would literally like. This is my bed. I would be sprinting. Somehow lay in life as parents walking. I hear you say Oh. He must've just play sorry. Sorry sorry sorry like down five now. My bad don't see. The problem for me was while I was in the basement. My Room was second floor so fiber got caught. There wasn't really it wasn't there wasn't but then thankfully later in high school. I gotTA move. It was one of the CRTV to in the my bedroom. I remember helping. My Dad tried to care that the stairs dude. There's a reason CRTV died out. Jesus Christ Bro. May like may look. I'm surprised I'm surprised. Manley hasn't died yet because I figured those people must be tired of carrying around thousand pound. Tv's like it's insane see TV's dying. You can't find them. Yeah I mean for reasons. Jeez but once it got into my room is a lot. Easier to to be snicker snicker did you if you got grounded. Did they take away your xbox or like did they ever take away your gaming? It'd be like two months without experts. Who Safety and that's game over. I'm saying like for me like you might as well just told me like. Take it away for two months. I remember there's always some a couple of things here and there even though I was like I was like a super good kid never really bad. Yeah it was never like failing classes no Like I was talking to clear the other day because she had like some old book from her earlier childhood and she was an only kid and so it was like going through this. Oh my God I never had that. I never got to do this and it was like well. Yeah because I have four other brothers and she was like yeah like if I got like an for every a on my report card I'll get like x amount of money to and I'd be like if I if I got as they'd be like keep it up and if I didn't it'd be like what are you doing and if I never got to see because they're like if you get a see like your life is over Fox is gonNA be like forever and I was like man that must be for me. It was just like like you're gonNA get as bar and you're going lager mine was like just pass. Let you live in this house. There was. I've gotten one C. A. My life and it was like a call known as trig PRE CALC in Junior year or something and I was just lost and it didn't help one of my best friends was in the class So we would joke around then. The teacher was also just really chill so she like we just joke around during class and so obviously didn't learn as much as I should but I was like trying and it was so much show too. I don't know what I'm doing that that was the only class I've ever gone in for like extra hours. I went in for like teacher meetings. When could win? She'd have conference our whatever. Go in for that. I did extra work at home. I would try bro and it was mainly towards semester. And it's like I don't know what I'm doing and xbox because no I got I got like a seventy eight. I think at the end but my parents saw how hard I tried. Because it wasn't like oh you did it because you gave up or like no. You didn't try enough like they saw that. I was actually trying to apply myself. Seventy a you were but I was actually super proud. Yeah because it like the final was like twenty five percent and so I was like I don't even think I could have gotten a B. but it was super likely I was going to get a d. So I saw that seventy I was. This is the happiest I've ever been on like a great and it was a see as the one time one time. Otherwise it's seventy five parents are just beat my ass. You got a good parents. What are you doing if I got a d? That's when they would get kicked my ass but see that that's not good but like you're passing. Yeah exactly if I could still play soccer at the end of the day saw that like if I was as long as academically eligible dad. Here's my grade. And he's a design. You can still kick a soccer ball yet. All right good stuff's on pretty much dude. It was I don't think he ever I don't everything. I got my xbox or anything like that taking away maybe just like they would try and stop me from playing so much. I think one time he took remember on the xbox three sixty the the thing was on the top like the hard drive was on the top. Yeah I think what time he figured out what stored everything he took that but I was still like to play the Games but I will play like profile and then my parents were divorced to so if my dad took it away no chance. My mom was taken it away from me. It's order my video game and then that's when remember when in high school when we would play. My Dad had this shitty Internet. My mom had a psych Robert played them as I am on my dad's this week to do games all because I'd rather have like not play the video game. Then try and play it and just be red bar. Red Bar May Be God Red Bar Rob for even like the I like. Dream Team's is Red Bar rob when you go home. Yeah Yeah when I came for breaks in half the record here I was like Red Bar Rob for like eight. Remember that yeah. I remember even though we'd be like I gotta go to my mom's and then you go over to your mom just for Internet record or something. I got stuff over a quick. I seriously would my mom because my dad had like God. I forgot what centurylink but it was like trash. Centurylink is so bad and then and then so I if I if I had to take away. My Dad's changed. My mom ever took it away from me. The only thing my mom ever did though was fucking yell at me at like two in the morning like stop yelling at these video games. Robert R like see me. They'd be like s one gold two and well. Yeah for me see the thing is. I always had a bedtime up until senior year of high school. I had a bad time bedtime. Like what like nothing like like it's like you're in bed and I think it would increase by like thirty minutes every like seventh grade to eight. Pm Yeah Yeah and and it would increase by thirty minutes so by junior year I had a bedtime like ten thirty and yeah finally got decent late night TV and then senior year is finally like just yeah but so it was like it was rough. Weekends was the best though like Friday and Saturday. I can go to bed whenever yeah although they'd come in at like Ab like you should get off and go to bed. And I'm like yeah sure the May go to bed. Nice step away blue to shortfall. They would stop trying to punish creepy video games really. Yeah I would just try to move my entire set up but most I would mostly play hand-held when I was growing up okay. I'm excited because they couldn't afford like two game cube or anything like that so I mean eventually I'll start billing law and so forth but they're never taken away for the most part. I was really unproblematic until I got into high school. When I got like Super Board I got bored and then my parents are like why don't wear grades event like she's kind of boring mom at that point. They don't understand the at that point they would try to limit me but like they knew one way or another going to find out how to play. Video Games. They're like all right as long as you go to a good college and do what you WanNa do. Like you'll be Chilean fucking generate. You go you go save your Kanto region young. There are so strict when I was younger but I was like the good kids so I would. There was nothing to worry about with me. Good one and by the time I got to High School. There are a lot more lax. 'cause by sister was oh man. My sister was like the my sister was like the one who would like go out and party. And so they're super strict on us and then like by the end. When shopping she went to college and figure out what to do and I was about to go to college. They're like yeah. You know I mean you know I. I guess our kids can handle themselves so there are a lot more lax so by the time I was bad. It wasn't really getting anything taken away at that point. I mean. What can you do when your kids in high school like realistic? Like ooh video games like. Oh yeah that's going to work. We're little shifts in high school. We could figure anything out like but I never got punished. Like crazy punish. I don't think I ever remember like the big time got in trouble when I was a kid though. I mean I'm not GonNa say Mexican parents talking about when I was a kid. Oh Man I usually get a chance and my mom has this. I don't remember this but my mom has a story that like would I was a little kid. I was being a little shithead and I was like doing something I was like getting spanked in She likes to send. I looked at her nose like that didn't hurt. Who's like well okay? And then she thought about like what her dad did win like she was growing up in like she was like all right. Pull down your pants like got about maybe tell you. I said it never heard my momma has. I did the exact same thing when she was spanking me. I go like That doesn't hurt. And as you and Own fucked up but I got the belt couple times when I was a young kid. Because that's what my Ma PA PAS. Dad Did that would that would essentially be like Mom My mom would be like all. Just wait till daddy gets home and then as a. Oh no and then you just see like the booth don't and the minimum it gets in the room like Ben Takes off the belt. Yeah and then they eventually gave up because yeah Punish they figured out. That physical punishment didn't do anything to me but if they say Christian. I'm disappoint. We'll just a kid disappoint you. I would ball and is that what you want. We worry much and then they'll say things like you're the only one we worry about because you're such a problem but like they really don't like they actually were everyone because all they're just like. Oh if if he believes he's the problem child. Oh He's GonNa get his ass year. I did get my xbox taken away one time when I got my em Ip Pueblo. That was Free Funny Stories. That's a Pretty Party. Rob storey classical Well this isn't like rob started like I was I was a good kid was doing a lot of soccer. I just didn't have time to go out and party and do this if I didn't have.

He was like suck. I was pissed. My Dad was pissed at that guy that he actually showed up on a bunch of seventeen year old kids dis so petty that never like no offence to like police officers. Who like like hardcore about it? But I'm just saying tops when it comes to like small things like that don't even show up to their court hearings. Well yeah because they're just like wine or like yeah. It doesn't matter. I just wanted to make sure they like new is wrong. That's nuts for like some kids. Getting I mean. Everyone does that when I don't understand what that got caught. That's what my dad said he's like I didn't call on God. You didn't do it. I was GonNa say during your stories. It was like wow. I wasn't like everyone was around me doing it so I got him. I was wearing the exact. I can't tell you how many times in highschool people like dude smoke this dude. Let's go numb. You ever come on this person doing that. Yeah Okay and then they keep flag and I I go with you guys. I want you to know that your peer pressure makes me want to do it even less I'm stubborn. And that like if someone's peer pressuring me I get stubborn to the fact to them like I'm just going to prove them wrong. I'm not GonNa do it then. I don't do it so I never did. I didn't do any of that stuff mostly because I hated every single person I ever met leading up and die school so it wasn't until until college actually met friends. I liked that I was like. Yeah I'll try this try that it's it's a lot easier to do that stuff when you're around people who you actually want to do as opposed to just. Oh just do it. Because we're doing it. There's a time in a place for everything and it's called college star yet now. I didn't college either. I go to youtube just became a famous youtuber. Turn out too well. You were partying during college. I was becoming craft mainly I was just playing league Ungodly amounts and that was at least is pretty much my freshman year. I mean I guess I still went out and mingled in someone. Whatever those are all but you weren't drinking. No I mean I still. I'm twenty five now. I've still yet to order. Alcohol ever never ordered myself a drink ones. I think. Sins turning twenty one I have was it. I assume play Vikings. They loved alcohol. I know that's the one thing I just can't agree with him. I go back. It'd be like skull and I'd be like yeah and I do the ROB thing like dip it out. Yeah I bet if it came down to you'd be a good whiskey man. You seem like whiskey man. If I drink hard liquor I have to do this thing. I don't I don't drink hard liquor because I hate taste of it. Never have. I'd take a shower or anything with mom like. Wow anyone no one actually. No-one acts like I take a shot. And then I don't breathe for like thirty seconds. That's true I I take it 'cause then you don't taste it you don't taste it if you if you don't breathe thirty seconds after that my whole house with my nose not to breed them at six. So you know. I don't want to stand there at the bars like I. Just don't take my shot. He does like I. Just sit there and turn blue. Never have a big. I'm a big believer in Pukhan rally if you guys party. That's that's the best way to do it. I can't tell you how many times it'd be like you'll rob you good. That guy's got a p real quick elope real quick is that it was like in the bathroom long. Come back like a bomb. But I don't drink very often but when I do I do drink I did I did. Shot has gone up from three to four though on the Who Come I got that dinner. Yeah that's Inter- was fun. Areas said it all right. We're done let's do. I'm more than alright whereas some more and that you guys horse I said sure at the beginning of the thing. I think we briefly talked about this. But you like guys. Don't let me drink more than three shots. And then you like art fourth here. We Go Away Rob Rob and I was like words. Unspoken word yet. No just just no out their kids. Don't think you have to do that to to do step. I didn't do any. I still had fun high school and college all right involved with like sports or the arts. That was involved in no extracurricular activities until videogames until ice cream until high school senior. Yes I say you want like everything senior year did a. I did the announcements. Then he got banned not me. I did not get band. You got bad you off the announcements band with someone who got banned would say no. Okay have I not explain the story before podcast? Maybe I don't see us the hard part I do this in real life too. I'm like like I know I've told this to somebody but I don't remember who you know what I'm sane and so for all I know about Oh God mistress telling this story again but anyway senior. High School. I knew as real good friends with the computer teacher. Super Tight Lobby MRIs houser. Yeah she's Great. We're here we'll we'll get us now And so we just start. I think the year before doing like video announcements and it'd be like really short like every Wednesday or whatever during like fourth period for the first like five minutes. He just put it on the of all the announcements for the week. And that's it and it was your typical high school announcements like here like today is Wednesday like things like that. Spanish class will be meeting after school on Thursday at and like that was the announcements. And there's all my God so I told Ms Hey I can make these interesting and like people are going to fight this yes. I'll make him like people want to watch this. And so she's like all right fine so she made a class for me senior year. My first period was announcements. And you had a class called announcement said moustache tight and so I go there and we'd prepare Like during earlier in the week. And then we shoot Friday Thursdays. And then the edit Friday morning and it was just three of you right. That was me Matt aiden and I feel like I don't think so. No it might have been douse. I don't remember yeah might've Been Dallas. Anyway there's like three or four of us and she essentially give us the sheet that during the normal announcements. That's what used to be. They just verbatim like Nanu Nanna so I go okay. What did you like the gist? Okay great and then I would spice it up and then tell everyone and get out of you and so it'd be like all right so like we make a skit for like ever announcement and so we started and like they'd have ideas. Okay yeah sure. Whatever we'd like film em. We ugly green screen room to and stuff. And we do this whole thing and they would do some stuff and Yeah it's funny guys but then I'd go to the cutting room and just be that can't see like I'm not going to ruin their fun while we're recording. Yeah they're having fun. Whatever but then I gotta editing like yeah guys. That can't make. That's not going into the announcements. Well the one Friday. I don't come in because I was sick. And Yeah and so I don't go into edit like I have to come in later in that day and so I go in and fourth period comes or whatever and announcements. Come on and I haven't seen him. Obviously there's a new for me and my hanes yet you don't wear like. I got this and they start playing bro and I don't think my teacher finished him and thing. I really like remember at one point in the announcement. It's like Matt on a table and he's doing he sitting there like this and it's just like painting and it's like Nineties Porno Yeah. There was like red whistling roses and there was some where it got a little too sexual and then I think they made some inappropriate joke. They said I think he didn't. He didn't even take cuss words. Either I gue- yeah like it was just like. Oh my God this is I'm like show in. Td ON ABC in high school. That's I was. We're just sitting there and everyone's looking at me. I'm like this wasn't me? I like this. This is what you don't see this doesn't happen. And so the guy during the in the fourth period someone comes into class goes a Christian Miller. I might yet. They're like what should we call it? The whatever the fuck the principal. The principal needs to see you. I'm like Oh my God. Of course Oh call down to the principal's office and already everybody else. Was There Matt Corey and I think Dallas and Hayden Mike and I just show up. I'm looking at him. Like guys your point. Yeah like disappointed. Dad like you guys had one job and Hayden insured me. He's like no dude. Like I got this. And so he's like what you guys did like that wasn't Blah Blah Blah. So obviously we got cancelled and all this different stuff. And I lost that class and Blah Blah Blah. What normally would happen like people were like looking for the announcements break? Yeah great announcements looking forward to next I would have funny little bits always will skits and we would like we would. We would like skirt the line on like is this okay but like people go along with it and it's a laugh. I kinda have fun like like something better actually. Yeah showed that we cared and people are people that was funny and for the first time the lake I five. Six minutes of that class wasn't just like and then yet my friends just go and ruin it. Which is unfortunate. Only tall is all like trophy. French girl arrives you. Yoi On Bravo. That's I thought I had. I had a power. Wade's an on fourth period would announce going on and bully hated that we had to watch an Oscar. He already you hated the announcements because we would watch him and he's like this time that we're losing time lifting. We'd be done well because we watched the announcements. We get to be done early. So guys these folks and like I like it just got to that point with Matt. He's like all right. Everybody go to your stations like us the announcements to ask somebody to prom and I took like nine or ten minutes out of teachers times without announcement and bully rated Vanegas. You ever take ten minutes out of my class again. I'm making you run as a coach is really funny. Now we had we had like little skits. I think Before Christmas we'd had like got Carol Acapella. We did We did a little skit where we're like beards. I remember those files so but it would be funny like one of them for one of the Spanish class announcements. I just sat there and Read it off but then instead of my audio is dubbed in like the Buzz Light. You're speaking Spanish audio and then I just had a teleprompter like telling you. The actual news was great chef. Everyone this this is great. I do remember the one time. Though that is skirted blind it was Taco yeah where I was like We'll see if we get away this one We're talking about some like someone was like polluting. The waters your something some issue with the water and they do that and then in like pains to me and I go like thanks Matt Speaking of how Shit Mother Nature I go I go up. No thanks Matt. Speaking of health issues Spanish class because then I was like titanic dirty water. That was five now. The Mr Fruit. As Little Racist Buddy Edgy and but what do you expect? But that wasn't like that was probably the most whereas like I was editing. That was like I think we'll be okay but I'm not all the stuff I would have to start wearing Colorado. There's no Mexican see refined. There's actually quite a bit Monka. He's still a through ball is not borne. Anyway it was. Yeah as a lot of fun. We got cancelled but that was like one of the extracurricular things I did. And the MAC kind launched me into Mr Titan which was like are male pageant fashion fashion. Yeah I hadn't even thought about it but people voted me in because of or like wrote me. Whatever you're the announcement and the guy running for prom king. Why Your Prom King? Both no I don't think I'd ran yet. It was before the tickets were for prom. Like the winner. I think during that. I think it was prom king. I wasn't going to do because someone like was like Joe like Christian you should Mr Titan of lent. I only know what that is. I just do it so like signed up. But then that's when after Mr Titan someone wrote me in for Prom King I guess or something to light campaign and I never thought about that. And then they're like yeah but then so then. It was like four or five candidates and I was one of them so I was like all right fine. I'M NOT GONNA win but I'm GonNa have fun with this and that's when I did my whole campaign thing and we want and then the next year they They like my younger brother. Told Me Yeah they like they made it a rule. You can't cane gotta buyers average. I made the announcement. Yeah I got I got some of the announcements made like little. I showed it in my storytime vide- I made like little The commercials I went allow. I thought I wasn't going to win but apparently it was berry bear. Our Marketing was very close. I'm sure it was as the filed with the with the Prom Queen King. Dan She was like. I'm just GONNA go like no no. I told her. Yeah we'RE GONNA dance. Sounds like you can just get cody up here. You don't have to dance with me. Because cody was when there was supposed to win. They're going to be like the PROM. Couple all high school. Yeah so I was like they broke up. So that's my bad. I've ruined it. Did if he'd want Brown king. They have like kids by now pumping mouth. You're the reason there's a time you don't win prom king and end up happily ever after now. That was not that I didn't vote for me Robbed and vote for me very salty. Yeah Dude Cody was my locker partner dude and was like talking to me. How badly just wanted to win all the time get? He's like God. Do just wants to win so badly. Afraid Kirsten's inuit and I was like dude. I'll I'll deal with like hey you know. He wore the crown. Took pictures with her. Meek Destroy Right on INVESCO field baby. That's me let's go those pictures still somewhere somewhere. You've got little sash and everything I can't find my off but I did find this remember. Yeah Rob found the sixth grade yearbook. And that's Mu can't really see it why what's before blue. I for some reason I wrote. I put dots on all my friends like I was like. Oh He's my friend. There's one Dunkin I don't get it. You're permanently these guys are tight blue. Okay what is the nickname for sixth grade Christian NERD ASS? No it's pokey maniac. Oh my God that okay. Yeah I forgot. How could you sixth grade was okay? Come I sixth grade okay. Now I'm like okay but then it's like at the time. What is his favorite movie? Ooh Okay so since you're probably saying is great. This is probably the first time we've feeling any type of emotion so I'm going to say Love Actually Love Jack Black Right. Isn't that movie with Jiang? Blache they fall in love or something like that. I forget which no boots. A pokemon movie pokemon. Oh my God you actually lead told been poke around the first movie nope it's not the first one. Why Luhia two thousand? That was my guess what I did. I didn't even know myself dude. It might have been the I guess the only other one. That's partly the lattice ones I said. Oh my heroes heroes. Nope yeah hold on the ninth and I hate the ninth like on the ninth. Like he's like the nice movie. I go like that one. Why would you're probably just high on it because you were a kid and you will? Oh Man that movie was so tight I saw one though. I think it's I think I know which one program I hate the one. I want a weather man. It's pokemon ranger and the Temple of the sea so I was running off ranger. Yeah I was right on Ranger well. The lady asked was heroes. No I said Ranger because Manville is ranger trash. That's probably my least favorite one and no I don't it. Sixth Grade Christian loved it now. I was held hostage dude. I don't boys with someone who was like you're going to write the ninth and then you also create a cute little star at the end of your signatures. That still the case. No why did them pretty flashy. I was bordered dude No one actually even called me POLKA MANIAC. Thousand thing too. I remember putting that down nickname. I'll have one dog mania told me I don't have a nickname is that what heavy dua is that. When you were competing heavy in Pok Mon no I started then but then. Seventh and eighth were my main years. But I'd like to see six year was the first time I went to one that was with Matt when we went with our gist. Janke stacks like imagine some kids looking through the card collection like like I like Dragon. Yes like no trainers. I'm like why would I want traders so just like energy and bad POK Mon and then go up against like glue via E. EX Blasted all these e excess. And it's just like I just got short and that's was like all right I got you actually believe you're going to win because like you. I'm the hero of the story. Microphone is the strongest and the getting like you get an extra six. This is my draw. Engine Lougee now's the power to wipe out your entire fucking squad. My charges are poking quickly. Did pokemon quickly made me realize I am not the protagonist in the story? Yeah all right. Well anything competitive yu-gi-oh was like when I was like. Oh my God these people. These people really know they've really no. I was like the fucking idiot. Who was like? Oh I'll combine. I'll have dark magician and three blue eyes. I'll be on. Stop the stooges Detroit. My ads in tutor. Oh my God Wisconsin. Furry Dude Yeah I was GONNA ask Orange. He looks like a brown haired. Talmadge like he has like little clause use them like sacrifice always get sacrified that's whole like cardboard but that's career bustle. Archetype is quite him to get benefit benefits benefits. I'll sacrifice my credo. Yes crazy like crazy super wing and Kariba where it's like we're like okay. You buff him up and now like he Dick Punches your opponent based he's down Dick Dick Punch is P- yu-gi-oh your favorite card game blew. It was for a long time. I mean now it's T- mostly because pokemon go especially over the past. Five years has gone like has like they've upped their game on like the actual artwork. So I'm really just collecting the cars because the cards are tight. You always my favorite competitively for sure though like AIDS. We're GONNA cards. We're kind of like a continuously. Every single like three years just walked it up. But we'll talk about that. We're not GONNA mess up. They'd release an expansion. We gotta go okay. I gotTa Pee. I'm at a lot of water and we're back the overeating Christian. Look at Curry Bocar. Look at the tax and I look at like a newer yu-gi-oh card now Mike. It's like a small novel. Emperor the mighty master of Magic. His card reads about right here. We're turning the hand if you do garden. That's what happened to Pokemon. Tgif like there was never any band like any rotation because there's no rotating card list. It's just power power power power until you have small novels and your cards. That's terrifying cars somehow. Makeup stronger than the last. True Does yu-gi-oh have version of holographic. So now you get super graphics so they have like. You does the super type thing where they'll like released like super collector's edition. Versions of hollows like Rainbow. Rainbow is like holographic raiders. And like they like these secret is that are super have like scan lines on them and you has such tight hall graphics there Holography Game. Trump's poke montale graphic game early on absolutely no doubt but POKEMON has been on a different level of the past five years. Dude that like King Super I went to literally POK MON like trading card machine the I had never seen before it whatever the what I remember. I sent it to you picture. Yeah like the little pokemon Benny Machine. Yes that's literally in Fort Collins but the heck yeah it was literally like there. I was like what the Hell I'm moving back. These ever like. It was literally just bending wishing dedicated to poke Amman cards. I thought that was really cool. You're really cool. Thanks man you know who are also really cool. These people who ask questions on our patriots page. Whoa you know the best part is we had entire list of things to talk about and we have talked about literally none of them. Well here all. I'll read that. We had we had Valerie and hype. Let's get through them. Hey Yeah we're excited cool. Oh okay I have a key. God I'm normally like to swing my clout around the Brel. I'm Tryin I want. I want play Charlie. Trust me up slinging it boys. I'm trying yeah blue. We can just play trials in. Pretend I'm trying my hardest quarantines like she dances great. Please just let her dance. Thanks please court. We talked so bad. Quarantine we talk about. Quarantine tft. I'm addicted we've been grind. Yeah I've been grinding to we back. We back on the way back on that t train. But then I'll be. I'll be off in two weeks so well once probably around but then the thing too is probably find myself playing here in the air and then and then it's like as soon as I'm back into it I just go. I can't vr sickness and half-life. Wish I play. Vr because half life game dope Everything VR game last night doomed and I didn't really think thought I got VR sickness. In Pill I played this game for ten minutes and it was like Okay Puke that I wish I could remember. It was like in like it's like was literally all around me. I just I don't know and then like off Vr. Like when you move something you it. It's not able to move like this at least with the game. I was played like if you wanted to look on a quarter. Jolt you to that Corner. Like Yeah it was weird. I hated it and video games. Getting delayed feels bad. Mainly last of US did. They gave us specific day. She says a delayed indefinitely right now. And it's because I'm sure like they can't get to their computers and work on the well. No they said the game's pretty much almost done. It's just that economically. Wouldn't prove because he I think would really no one will be able to get physical sales. They'll get no physical sales physical such a big part of the market to you like this. Make sense it's so weird though. I had not bought a physical edition of a game in so long. Let's I I'm pretty sure. Like sixty percent of sale still physical right now. I guess I got. Here's the thing I bet you. Those sixty percent have never done digital. Because as soon as I did I was like I'm only physical. All right I have to get this digital and then I never went back. I mean a very personally I was gonNA last of physical because if there's like really important games to me that I know like you kind of collect it 'cause you know I have to collect it because I want to have our work and the final fantasy then Physical no probably not dodge products fun fantasies tight but it was never like my one of my main. I didn't know if you got it was always drag queens boy. We are here only knowing physical ones. I still get asked Pokemon. Yes it is the one I will always get. I was GONNA last was 'cause I was like I cried. My little baby can't be downloaded. Miss Miss Me. Collector's editions and sugar. Ammo crossing combat such a perfect time. Because it was they were shipping all their stuff regardless Ri- ri- with quarantine stuff start hitting. Oh Man Rabah crossing hit like I've never see like like like I had to do you think Nintendo fabricated this whole earthly guilty on. I don't know but if they did I mean they. They made a great choice. Because on that game for you guys over there they're making so many bells Yeah that was kind of list. We had obviously didn't go into any of death because we have patriotic questions I So this one is this one is in like a question so I thought it was actually pretty nice. Take on what we're doing here. Stevenson says thoughts on these hot takes. So these are thoughts on these hot takes. Ethan subway is the worst sub sandwich. Train I disagree. I think they're quiz. Knows is oh bro. Quiz knows would have that toast and then they had their special Italian sauce. You get a normal sub get it toasted and then on their little bar. At the end. They'd have Italian dressing is with knows gone. And then you're quite speaking to past tense. I mean I can't tell you the last time with a quickness. I'm just saying when I used to go. Which is like ten years ago. I have no idea I was tighten interest. There's so many different sandwich chains now that both of them are pretty. Also I think the taste bad taste like shit. I don't know if you guys know what tastes affiliates. But it's Kinda Gross. Oh what's what's the best sandwich chain? Firehouse FIREHOUSE BIGGER FIREHOUSE. In which which probably for me. Which which which. Which I used to like Jimmy Johns ally. But y'all got what they got. Yes I think it's just they're bred specifically that I love but I fire houses. They aren't officers just on a different level. That House wirehouse wins. Because they have their Cherry Lyman machine and firehouse undefeated which fun fact my flavors based off that Jerry Lineman. He asked me for inspiration as a free and fire. Ashtray Lime Bro. That and then they're -Talian Great. They have a wide variety as well. They got cold and hot subs but on rare occasions. I'm just feeling Jimmy Johns. I don't know sometimes Jimmy Johns hits different. There's a special sauce in there that they put that makes it different. I still think firehouse is definitely my favorite. Though the six six days out of the week I'd say the yeah I do. I do craving sometimes for just a specific Jimmy. Johns Sandwiches overshirt. That's why I'm saying Jimmy. Johnson which Italian Italians Pretty High? I don't even remember exactly what it is just any John Sandwich. They all of them have specific sauce in them. It just hits different limit. Let me also say this if the if the chips or does not have Miss Vicki's sea salt and video our I'm out. That's a dealbreaker. You know like Jalapeno Welford Vicki's I. Yeah well Miss Vicki's Jalapeno as long as they have misfit keys as long as yeah but if you don't the presence of quality right now be two saying. I'm out I This next hot take is Chris. Evans is hotter than Chris Hemsworth. Yes that is a hot taken. I disagree I think crims has Hemsworth is probably the most fine man on the face of the earth. I need to see back. Okay Chris Evans. Chris and I need to like a picture from Australia. I feel like we're going to be biased as Americans because Chris. Hemsworth is exotic so just naturally. We're going to be like ooh. He sounds different. I'd actually go. Chris Evans really ought to Chris Boardman. I mean Yeah but I personally Jones Aka I would if okay if I have to be wiped up probably Chris Evans but like if I'm just thinking like Oh fuck dude how China's Bryson you're trying to settle you go. Yeah but if you're like what the Fuck Holy Shit Chris Hemsworth. I look at Chris. Answer like I can fix him off. It's close though. Here's a hot. Take a new. Jersey is the worst state I don't think I never have either been to New Jersey. I guess but I will say fan someone in college who was hardcore New Jersey Person. She'd always talk about being from New Jersey like Miss New Jersey and this joy Z. Joys Isaiah missed. I can't get up. Okay George GAURAV LONDON. And that was it. Now Mind you. I don't think I've ever met more stereotype. A caricature of someone from Jersey. Then her she would smoke menthol newports. Oh drink every single night into handy beforehand. He was a thing I was like. I'll see what I was in college like. I use the Baz Bitch I've ever met and then as I got older. It was like their mind. She's just kind of dirty she's doing great. She's actually really nice. But like but you come up but I mean I mean. Everyone's every single person talk about it. There's there's dirty girls in college and you're like Oh and Kinda. I looked up. Were States to live in twenty twenty and according to this was a twenty eighteen survey Louisiana was ranked the worst and New Jersey was ranked twelfth. So I pretty much wealth best. No twelve best. Oh Twelve Beth. Oh you know whereas the worst it's fifty now so according to the top ten wars which would be forty to fifty be. Louisiana would be fifty Mississippi for nine New Mexico West Virginia Alabama. Arkansas Alaska Oklahoma South Carolina and Kentucky. And I'm not saying anyone here suck or anything like that. I'm sure they're great. People like to say I hate Florida is. This is this his heartache. Because I've never heard that take. I don't know I guess these are Ethan takes. I've never was APP against New Jersey on Jersey. What's the problem? Jersey hates choisy. This one is halo. Reach is better than Halo five now both or trash. You're saying like dog. Shit is better than cat. Shit at the end of the data folks. Shit like the matter. I would say hey. We'll find better pay. Both I hate hill was like one of the first. Halos I really gave it a shot and I don't think I've ever felt like more mediocre experience in my life. Yeah you're not so for that reason alone because reaches older I have to say probably made should be. Are we talking? Multiplayer campaign because campaign has a gain in general for the really played reach. I think I've played with you guys on on steam right. You missed like the the genuine like experience. Play no doubt but I've played hill. I'm like each this is. What is this halo g? Well I mean. Hails had an identity crisis for a while but I would still say five just because I still think it made some important improvements at least for me like it was more of a halo three than Halo reach Here sure this one. I don't think is very hot. Take Talk is inferior divine. I think if you talked to any of us. I think we would all agree. I feel like Tick Tock. His quickly become more influential than vine. Personally re really you still see so many. So many talk memes nowadays. I would say it's more influential. I think to talk. I mean purely because of how its managed to keep culturally PAC. Man Come on you guys. We disrespect that were ill. Brett guy came on all fours cut. Cut around you can't say don't do it. For the Bein anymore. But you know just take talking to bring back. What are we gonNA bring back the Daniel down or we're GONNA go over the means that come provider better than the tick tock. I mean because Terry out here stabbing oh I mean I think you I think you underestimate how many memes come from. Tick Tock now that you see. I think I'm more up to date because Claire is all in the tectonic so like every night. I get an update. Like here's all the tick tock. So I think I mean if as far as I can tell especially my little sphere. It seems Tick Tock has definitely been more influential but also take talk. Just I feel like has turned into like a dance. Fucking like everybody. Everything is on there that was vine to vine would go but like take talk more so for sure. I feel like drake came out with that to see song and which first of all is not that good drink so I think he just made that track literally for Tick Tock. It's like put your right foot up and then do the to see slide. It's stupid trade marketing. I mean you see 'cause you'll see you'll see the power of Tick Tock. If there's some song people started tick Tock it blows up. Yeah exactly I think tick tock is has rapidly become better than buying and I think part of it is. I loved vines. The fact that you had to get down to seven seconds but the fact that tick tock allows more than that does mean you get a wider variety of content. You get so many better skits from. Why aren't you guys? Take Talk you're done. I'm going to take talking playing fortnight. I'm out because we're we're youtube and twitch guys talk guys yeah being whatever whatever means happened was end up on twitter anyway. So so thank you thank you. I kind of like that hot. Take thing. Maybe we'll see more of those Is this from Alex Black What were you guys is first jobs? And what and what wasn't true story from that job that you guys had had My first job was a soccer referee for like P weekends but like I hate I only two months and then I got a job at a golf course here where I live and I- valid cars for about like three or four years until I started streaming and that was pretty much like my first job in an interesting story from that. I remember Dr Ridge. Expensive cars drive like porsches Angie any car you can think of roles role as some like some cameras and Dwi came raise some station. Wagons Mercedes We have a different idea of Nice So one time so this area of Colorado Golf of is it's like it's kind of like they kind of try and make it look like a prairie kind of a sense so there's a lot of wildlife there so there was this one bird. I forget what it is but they just fucking do birds do and just don't shut the fuck up there. Just because call the general manager Martin and there was one that had made a nest that was like right under the like. So like. Here's the valet circle. And like here's like the over part of it at the Overhang. I guess into the clubhouse so one time the GM comes out and he's like. I'm sick of this bird and he's like Robert. Can you pull up my car and it was Marshall. First of all martial tedtalk Robert Mugabe car. Yeah Marshall while you talk like that car also Marshall had like this in this infinity quattro dude and it was stick the only infinity. I've ever seen to have stick dude and that thing was tight pro like if you don't if you stick to. This clutch was literally. Like if I heard I I would literally have to go like like I if I like didn't like automatically like perfectly time cards all out and you don't want to sell out the fucking. Gm's car so anytime somebody wanted to drive Marshall's five and was like no. I'm not driving it you driver so like I'm bringing it up. Marshall's car and I was like your Marshall here. The keys like have a good day or I'm not even I was like what are you doing? He opens his trunk. Grabs like these pellet gun or like a shot like something to shoot like like I think quail and he literally like can I borrow like the desk. And he like he like props it up in his way and then it like starts fight away and use your these huge thing and the gun goes picks up the bird throws it away and then I had to go the shock away and then he got fired because of that. You're really swear to God that Pretty Wild Story. I loved that job. That job was one of the dope is jobs ever. If you've ever worked as a valet at a golf course do it. I loved that job. I miss it sometimes. Pepe I mean like oh I seeing like and then like what like? And that's the thing when you work at a golf course like that. Anybody that came there was happy because they were here to play fucking Gulf so there are always stoke unhappy to be there. I never really had to deal with people. Like oh how are you today? I'm mad 'cause I'm coming to my fifty thousand dollar a year. Golf club facilities. They're always there are always so happy blown up like I'm glad to be here. I pay too much and they were most of them. Were just old boomers. But they were all really cool and they all really liked me get to drive their cars. Yeah and I never I never. I never crash setting. I never crashed any to this day. Never did never messed it up one time though so you know when like new places are being built. They had those weird. Hey things like a a circle of hey and then. They had the spokes in him to hold him down. You know what I'm talking about. It's like for native for some I. Don't they had it so somebody had like backed the car up and it went over one and it went into the the spokes like a wind spoke was like now hang into the bumper of a car so when they parked it like that in the morning. That's how they parked it so now. They had three spokes of would like underneath the bumper car. So now when I was told to go pick up the car get the car. Turn it on. Start driving forward because at this golf course we had to park everything in reverse. So That's how we knew that like we parked this. This was parked in the a lot so he backed up into a UP. A win over three spokes. So I turn on the car and I'd never heard anything like drive. Fuck what I did was that I do and then like I looked at it and the bump and thank God it was like I say I say thank God. It was a really nice car it was like a lexus. Like some lays lexus. Nothing as I'm so fucked and then I was like. Oh wait a second the second ship. I depart this car. I've just I had to take it like this. So they had to find out who liked parked it in all that kind of stuff but no I never. I never messed up any of the cars. Thank God thank God booth. You have any interesting stories from your first job. And what was so? My first job was at McDonalds and McDonald's is not as nice as it is now back when I worked at McDonalds. They were still kinda. You can find some pretty ratchet ask McDonald's I don't really remember any I just remember customers being Super Shady General and I remember this one chick we didn't have the best. Donald's okay chief. I was probably the most reliable on the line and General. Cook there and I'm not reliable person so that doesn't that doesn't give you guidance idea so I just remember every single time there. Was this one chick who would always come with three kids. There were shits kids ever seen in my life and she would always make shitty fucking pond every time like she got her order on an order for some reason would always be wrong and she'd be like I don't know who works there. But they need to go back to hamburger academy and she would like look back at her kids for validation and start laughing with them and I'd be like so you fucking suck So you want a number two lady heads. Tell me what you want find. Here's some free fries. Just leave me alone. I will say by the probably the store I remember the most. I don't even remember these two chicks. They hate each other. They're both Not Managers but whatever's like right below manager busy like the crew managers like they'd be above normal employees. It'd be like their little red shirts and they think they're pretty hot chip because they're like. Oh I'm a manager guys today and we had two of them because I I would work overnight so like right before overnight to those crew managers who would be leaving the shift and want to be starting it. I remember one night. I'm pretty ignorant to drama and like people like being passive like I just went there to work and get the fuck out for me for a check. I'm here for my paycheck. I'm here to flip burgers and get the fuck out and I'm showing. I remember one night. I'm literally in the back. Just cooking up cooking up some cookies. Because we're we're long cookies and your boys got a nice fed. Yeah cooking cooking up in the back of the backseat in cleaning stuff up. I I come out to put the cookies in the front because they have little front display like right behind me. Just I'm so I turn around to the two crew manager just like being shared which other co fight. Yeah yes it was a girl fight and I'm just. I still have the cookies in my hand. I some still putting them in the hold on. I got a couple more worldstar. I swear I was like a shitty movie. 'cause I just sat there. I didn't even try to break up because I took a day. Like what am I gonna put this cookies away bro. So everyone was trying to stop them. And I'm sitting there like slowly putting the cookie to the oats are sorry doesn't Cook. This guy goes somewhere please what they were fighting about. I just I just I just remember that. Say those just the loudest right behind me. Did you ever work through blue? Yeah I mean I worked pretty much. Everything was that light. That's one reason why I knew. I could never food and because I could just not do the multitasking. Okay what else boop boop boop boop drive through or what about that? I could do give your car. That's that's a lot and looked at it. What do you mean you'd be great? It wasn't that bad. 'cause you'd have people who tell so so. Yeah I mean. Drive through. Is like a lot of multitasking. Where if you if you're the someone who is in the drive. You're not just doing drive through your cleaning trays for the for dine in. You're you're also washing dishes if you're driving through so in between when there's like not law traffic you're in the back washing dishes and then yet sometimes you'd have to go online to help out while taking order so whoever is on dry feel like respect your respect people in drive through because they were the hardest spectrum. I was surprised rub. You'd never worked service job for navy service in the sense of parking people's cars but that's it because I remember when I when I was in rob was like. Hey Man I hope you have a good night man and I was like. Oh you're you're the type of employee of the Food Service people love and he's like yeah. There were serious. Well I just want to be like asshole label on because I know I can. I can't do what they're doing. I know that for a fact so like and they're giving me food so I gotta be nice to see. I try to do that all the time but I don't think if I didn't work shop I would be that person I think people are just nice to or like I like to think that all more people home with that there is nothing that makes you question humanity more than working drive through people you the way. People's food hold my guy. People are shittiest. People I've ever met in my life have been through drive there. I don't think it's so funny because I don't think jobs Tommy more than McDonald's about like being a good person which is ironic. Because everyone's like oh you're GONNA Flip Burgers. But now you work drive-thru do treat people not nicer because watched humanitarian at different. Lynn's eighty when they're hungry and Bam people are dicks also. Mcdonald's taught me kindness like that is the thing I took my dad. Who is the still to this day in bear? Issing when you go through. This is my data the drive to stop. Ptsd okay just pull up a low no literally do but we just pulled in Rosendo. Hello yes sir. It'll just be a moment. Okay like dad please. Just go number two coke and then like he's just really just a worse in the drive. I was always in the passenger seat. Like thank you thank you. The worst is when you're like. Hey sorry one second quarter and they're like no you're going to have to. You're going to have to wait. No I need to order right now. I need to be somewhere Sorry Majesty One Minute and like literally in your ear while you're doing what you have to do like yeah I want to. I wouldn't have tuna number five. And then like they're like repeat the legit say their whole order while I just told him. Sorry man we're going to and then they think they're done right so they'll roll up and they're like. Yeah what's Total Mike? Ma'am sorry I couldn't take your order. I told you to. A and she's like well I told you order. I'M NOT GONNA repeat it and I was like okay. Well you're not getting your food so you might as well have you order again. And of course they want their food. So what do they do that? Either order again God people fucking so my dad goes. Hello my dad. There's six other cars in front of us right now. What is taking our order. Five seconds before you said Hello GonNa do six cars. I don't get it. I am people think like that. I'll just try to be so nice whenever I go foods like whenever people are like Sir. I'm so sorry after you have to wait for a couple of minutes and I'm like Oh that's totally fine. I'll be talking about no problem in like look man. I've been there. She's probably like she probably thinks fucking hater like I feel so bad. That's trying to like men. They're probably busting their is back. There I try and give them the benefit of that but then sometimes I have a limit though. If I'm like waiting for like ten minutes all right what are we doing here? Do you have any fun jobs Christian? You're a programming years yet. For Data Entry Show was basic data entry. So absolutely no interesting stories thing. What's basic data? You're like a like a tube between the one zero zero one knows what do they just. Here's a stack of like a thousand paper. Okay and then. Each one has like per page. There's probably like twenty five items. You sit there all right. Put to look at that while your on your keyboard okay. Seven zero dash nine seventeen dash tab. You're in an excel spreadsheet. Yo You do all twenty five and then you gotTa make sure you put everything in right because if you don't you didn't have to go through all thousand pages and figure out what you put in wrong but you next month. I'll write. This tap into Vince is that tap and as my life the only thing I found out about myself during this time was that I am a workaholic and now I know that. But that's when they first discovered it because I could work hours and so I just I go home from work or from school I I need to work. I work well. Yeah but then. I'd like to be watching TV and as I'm watching TV. I can just go do this. Data entry make money and so then it was a school based data entry school-based at Inter school based data entry and that. You bought a computer in the night in here. I am made some Gotham sitting posture videos. It's actually pretty good question It'll be our last one from a surgical. Sell a question for the podcast. Has There ever been a movie that has been so bad that you just turned it off instead of finishing it If I could have it would've been avatar the last heir bender but it was. I was in the movie theater with a group of friends otherwise I would've wiped out of that never walked out of movie. I have ever. My parents did when I was younger because like they didn't realize what movie we're in but that was about it otherwise I usually just stick through it. I don't remember Will Ferrell comedy but I was younger and I didn't realize I don't know I've only walked out of one movie in my entire life and it wasn't because the movie was bad is because it was making Sydney. And I sic it. Was that New Blair witch project and there's something about when the cameras like got. Outta here like it literally. I want to throw up. I've learnt I never saw cloverfield in a movie theater and I still haven't always like clips of it like I've seen cloverfield. I thought that would make me nauseous. But it didn't I loved chlorophyll but go keep going like just that New Blair witch project movie. I forget what it was called and it was trash it was trash and it made me so sick because they had a budget of Twenty Bucks. No the new one. It was the known as the twenty nine. I was at nine years old reasonable. That shit like actually. I haven't because like that. Sydney was like can we liked go and I was like I never thought you'd ask for me. Was the Dragon. Balmy drag above Aleutian. I'm sorry my dad took me and I was. I was so excited and my dad was oh I like dragon ball to you but I mean you know. He was just but he was. He's like watching watching but he was. He liked is obviously like dude in the fuck up out of Elian Dude like those tight you like. My mom was like Oh no no no. This show is terrible. Shows Kinda Kinda tight so he took me to because he was like yeah? It's cool show. I'll go watch it with you and I'm just sitting there and I see little look on my dad's face. He's just like my God. What Jeez I save over. You just look bad and I'm like hey go you know. It's just like yeah. Let's go literally walked out uses. It was a man seen it but I don't know how they put that thirty million budget into because that was like watching like a B grade porn. Movie with how bad that was it was home. I guide finger at that movie. I was so excited to kid when I went to go watch too man. I was so excited. Yeah live. Action is trump's cats just to see how bad it really was but I ended up seeing it. I'm good here's a question. What is the next time? We think we're going to be able to go into a movie theater honestly man like I'm thinking like October. Well here's the problem for me. I think what's probably going to happen. Is I think this is going to be one of those moments where people realize. We really don't need theaters for movies to succeed. I hope I feel like theaters are so movies though I still like I like the movie theater now but like enjoy that I. It's hard to tell because I think well as long as we're smart about it. It's like it's not going to go from quarantine to normal day. Yeah like we can swollen. We start to like open things up and then still limit. The amount of people at capacity in certain places like the movie theater could open up but like twenty five percent capacity or like X. Men and people were viewing but the problem is right now. We don't know how many movies are being finished because so many projects have just been postponed. Yeah so I don't know how many movies are going to be ready to be nice. Yeah I don't think we're going to be back to normalcy of crowds like that honesty for years maybe secur- normalcy the what we're used to that for like thinking about at least at least like no way it's going to be at least a full year from now. It'll probably next really like summer blockbusters might do. Yeah but yeah I would say so. Yeah it's got to be the case for sports then. One hundred percent yeah. He's one of the people that go are boomers and they I feel like they just a lot of them. Just don't care and I don't mean that in Lega disrespect away but it is a lot of people that go to games. You have younger but then there's also a really big older generation and especially for them to. It's like if they go to games. They've been doing it for years and years and years so these are people who take your whole biased right. They're like oh by Rona Corona. I went through measles I went through smoke. I went through. I would do all that I was fine. There wasn't nothing could go to a sports game. I'll be fine. Young Man on the bench taught me a lot. You know kept blue sitting on a bench. Find you on the Internet. Hey Man you could find me everywhere. Apelu ostler defied me everywhere in. Find me everywhere Mr Fruit. That has been another episode. G-o-v is quarantine addition. We do it every time.

Leah Charles-King

"Mentally owns. Focus on your mental health you show regrets mentally. Entity. then. Men Today. Thank you so much for joining me coming onto chat dementia. Yours really appreciate you taking time. Getting on during the pandemic and lockdown in general with the pandemic in lockdown I think as somebody who has suffered depression and obviously by now for a number of years. I'm so used to be an isolated so it's almost like on one hand. I feel like contrained for this. So when it will happen I, was just cool. Take some quite east being isolated and mainly because of my own doing however, they have been moments where it's just hit me out of the blue. And I felt quite. So panicked too anxious cheerful could be something that is triggered off the telly or something like that, and you just fight my gosh, this is really happening. Yeah. I. Found a quad roller coaster like even move cited than just just normally disorder that's a bit of a road effective. This felt like. That like an extra layer of rice, stress and everything but yeah. Okay I guess everybody should have been fitting a bit like that regardless of what they they have. Yeah I think. For the first time, they'll be a lot of people experiencing anxiety and depression. He would never have felt those feelings before. especially. Coming out vase I think it's the second pandemic presently. Let's talk about you more that you've had fascinating career. Could you please stop telling us about a Latte from cliche crtv up till today wow. Just briefly. Well, I go go band scientists say knees ache when I was about twelve years old my cousins and I, the three vessels together. We were discovered singing at a family party. We kind of decided to get into a girl band he was just very organic. And Rest Gateway of our childhoods for many as but loved it. Until we signs about the age of fifteen sixteen and we release some songs, snitch shots and we had a great time we told you flying Ritchie and we music videos and bill posters, and this was the days where there wasn't social media. Sorry. Is really difficult. Is such a shame to not to have all those videos and pictures and things like that that people have now they suits in the nineties wants the group. is about two thousand, one about yields so obsolete repented. Got Into TV I saw an advert full crtv the telly that's children's it and I was actually really depressed I. Didn't want to send a tape at done the tape at that point Sheryl Rail, which literally was vhs. And you know Cheryl's on East Coast to be a couple of minutes long. This was like half an hour forty minutes of me to to random stop interviewing people and just random things and. Sent tape off on the very last day. Just to push myself to do it really depressed because the Greek attended we'll start record sale. And that was the first time that Caridi remember suffering depression by sending the tape pain tonight was months later it fell at least I think get coal off gang final decision. So. went out to Birmingham condition and then went three weeks of you know like. X factor style will do. Things now and it was the very beginning of a very beginning of like reality. TV. So yes. So the kids the kids to me in and I became the first and only black female continuity presenter on cit in it's full forty history to date and which is a great accolade thoughts in two thousand, nine, hundred, ninety s no, which I'm sure we'll on seven and Bay botch. It was a it was a great experience. It was a really great experience, and then I go ahead taunted onto Disney and then from Disney I thin starting working for be in America's red carpet, and then I a launched B. E. T. International Kristine K., in Europe. So up in a lot I for a lot of things in and fortunately just over twenty as now I've been TV presenter Sherry it's a long journey and it should jenny. Has Come with a lot adversity, a lot of oppression. Sexism racism. The equally here I am and I'm still going and I'm grateful it comes with some great memories as well and great experiences. You some really sizing up like a assuming price because I mean, I've I've seen your instagram live everybody in as well. But. Obviously you know the it seems like you've kind of had several whole massive careers. You know like most of us hope for just one. Year. This whole big career in music and then yeah, we sorta sounds like riches kind of destiny's child type thing they were young. Yeah, it was. So you had all of that and then you. have to sort of stops again in terms of you, and then you go crtv do kinds of things. Radio MTV different. Yeah just I mean. Yeah. The coast of two, thousand, nine hundred, and then having mental illness between then being diagnosed with bipolar living up life the secrecy rebuilding, not knowing myself and just having to create a Lia two point. Oh so to speak while still trying to chase dream and still. Breaking down those barriers and still having. Does it someday my face but things I can't help like the color of my skin, all my gender. Leads to cover that I will shut you about what could we just by talking a bit about your bipolar disorder and when did you realize that you needed some help women you diagnosed because I know people always diagnosed for while yet I was diagnosed with bipolar eight years ago. But before that I was suffering depression consciously as I say because I realized that that point was depression and a few years before that but prior to that throughout my twin teens, i. And this is. During will. To go cit and things that actually know off cliche like I said, that was my first bounces depression. But whenever I experienced, it was always up and down jumping ridi depress seasons being really happy and high always funny always vaiciunas always the life and so then it could go down. The pathway I'm just totally depressed irritable. And all the things that come with it. But because of the night of my shop and the nature of my career, like he say, some people would hype for free and I've had several. So dying itself Meshes with your heads is equally as it's a great thing as well, and I never sounds ungrateful and bought. I always took that it was just and downs of the industry and it wasn't until. I had. Gone into a job where I was actually producing. And I was being bullied by a senior member of staff. That anxiety hit me and I'd never experienced anxiety had never experienced panic attacks I. didn't know what it was I. Got signed a flag. I was very ill. I was having panic attacks time and I was very depressed in. So I was given ons depressants and like that. But within a year or two, I became money just out of nowhere. Really. So it foul. And between suicidal and going through stuff. But when it became money suddenly you know yourself that echo from this really dot time to shut me everything is fantastic and you know ago I can even get up and have a shallow brush, my teeth or Ito at Eton and coming on. She, side on Tariam all over the place and then next minute I am happy and I feel free and I feel energize. But yet I'm not sleeping and I'm not eating over a period of time realize something was right. My behavior wasn't right I'm just not behaving as the person that I knew I was and the. And I actually remember an episode of Eastenders many years ago where the character stacey. Slater. Became by piles, start that showing those symptoms. And some way in the midst of this manic episode, I remembered that and I say, it's I don't have depression bipolar. So many ways. I. Diagnose myself and nobody would believe me my family was in you know it's very black Caribbean African and type an Asian culture as well that he's very much played down it's it's it could be shame or embarrassment and things like that, and so my family, which is no no, no don't say things like that and. My his went listening and nobody was believing really and I was really afraid. I was going to do something to myself. I was looking out the window every day I knew I could jump from. And I was concentrating how I was going to do this. But I was afraid of myself deep down didn't want to die and so I wrote suicide note to my gp because I kept visiting and they kept palm me off more antidepressants and on the serious I know I said, you need to help me today of a will kill myself and that was basically the story of how I I got diagnosed in the end and then how finale of is psychology see me he said straightaway the you'll bipolar. Machines, break and you've had a lot happening in your life. You've had many careers. You've had a lot of movement and a lot of ups and downs. And Just, way. And that's where I go to. That's how the bipolar started. So in the last eight years I've been rebuilding. REBUILDING MYSELF REBUILT IN MY mind. My. Career. Not even remembering stuff as well. I think that's trauma. We still block things out disassociate. I was afraid I was afraid of steak. Mom's afraid I full. The industry wants once work with me that people like me and in parallel to that I was winning awards people coming to my presented. Training Academy and. They showed me all this love and yeah inside I just hated myself still didn't know who I was but that'll change now thankfully in the last year since I've come out and started speaking about the so much. I mean. Can we guys? I mean. I'm so glad that you have the time to chat to me because I mean. At maximum Chris Britain's and everything, and I'm really glad we hamshaw. The you mentioned sort of about having to really convince your GP to get help banks you have to go to I mean I don't think any anyone here in that including medical stuff whatever united be quite horrified by that. Do you attribute that? Do you think to anything might the kind of the idea that the strong black woman that some GP's half or do you think this was just sort of you'll particular GP was just not very good with people in general with. Mental Health Issues I've found just generally with my experiences with GP's they are general practitioners. They know about depression they don't. They don't impede to know so much about other mental illnesses and let's they have a personal interest in it. So I've changed to so many times over the as and I tend to get the same treatment in terms of it being a race thing I don't think is a case of strong black woman was housed being seen but because I am very particular. Now, sometimes, a lot of the Times held against me. So because on not this, even though my can be non linear and I can waffle and I can speak can things like that equally when I am speaking because I'm usually quite coherent. And I seem to have a grasp on my emotions and things like that. I'm seeing it played down a lot and he sometimes don't realize how ill I actually am. They just saying she's being great because people prefer when I mean my high to win in my life. Thank my family friends they you know I it's the fun part as long as she doesn't it she's in. Endanger herself for anybody else. Then she's fine when I'm depressed, it's a different story but because I'm very good at expressing even with doctors, psychologists, therapists always the same thing and so I've always just tended to be forgotten and whether that's my career whether that's fighting for my mental health. I always had to fight. And fight and fight. The amount of times have been lost in the system for therapy eight years in fact, and I'm still waiting. Because I don't know but that adds to my mental health issues. ADDS to this feeling. This irritation of being forgotten and having to fight all the time whether it's fight for my career fight for why believe in fight for other people. Fight. For like I said my health just everything and it does get really tiring and I as a person whether that's as a woman whether it's also as as a black woman and what comes with it. I have had to be tenacious and dig deep at times when I didn't think I could because I ultimately I to not want to take my own life I. Want to leave and I, want to live. A good life and I want people to know that they can also live a good life if they have mental illness doesn't have to mean. That it's over for us because I thought that for many years I was over and actually there is life after diagnosis, we can make it but. It's so difficult and it's you don't always get support that you would imagine to get unless you are the. bumbling wreck who the stereotype of by bipolar running down the street half-naked. Know trying to kill people I don't know stereotypes that people think by polarize. Is What's difficult. You know when of as well at the moment we have. Health system where people aren't being seen all the time until they have reached crisis point said, the seducing talking about is when when. into quite severe Monica episodes will this offering slice psychosis of some kind right whereas when that earliest stages Where the going up with the other way round esser defending depressed you know they might be reaching out for help better not being seen young and especially I mean it does really warm. You mentioned this this dossier this anyway the fact that. it really worries me that people aren't ready being. TALKED TO THEM INTO HEALTH And can I can I? Interject quickly survey you we spoke at the beginning about the lockdown. Gino, I have once been checked on by medical professional not my k. cool. Tonight's is not my GP. They don't take my medication. They don't know if I k they don't know how I'm surviving in lockdown people are suffering just in general and you know GP's quite bake and there were loads of stuff and as far as I'm concerned, they must be a percentage. Of patients who are obviously Radi fungible and I feel like mental health patients were overlooked within this. You know I don't know anyone who's been called anyone that I know who is you know within the GP suffering mental health issues over the existing whether it survey or not so much. They have not had one call one checkup nobody's checks up on me, and that's my experience and I just think that is such a shame and again it makes you feel forgotten and it makes it Caridi. Make you feel more depressed more alone. And ultimately most suicidal for those who? Start going that way and it breaks my heart radio because there are loads of people right now is rerecord as he was suffering and he's just awful to to think about I feel exactly the same because I mean. Same experiences ready in well in many ways, I mean mighty P. knows about my boat disorder but I haven't had a single phone call I mean at one point I did have had been referred to a team but then apparently I was well enough I didn't need this teams. I. Had this left it through a while back basically saying that wash their hands which in I was just like, Oh, well, that's good. You know see well enough I. Don't need your support but at the Same time when the pandemic hit I really wasn't in a very good place mentally like I was ready to start with and I couldn't get hold of my meds and I was the one that was how much of that ring my gp several times saying I. Really need another prescription because the old one that you gave me the pharmacy I just couldn't get it because they you know they have programs with deliveries of the pharmacy that was beginning yet I have the same yet at the same. Can took a bit about county what's going on around him? Is Funny because I I've been speaking about team today some friends and stuff just speaking about the creative sides of bipolar actually in view of calm. Yeah. Because I know it's very easy to say people having a breakdown and I. I. Don't know. I don't. Know Him. Personally I I do know though. Is. that. How Hollywood scene there's a lot that goes on behind the scenes that we don't know about. But I also look kind. Yeah and I. Think to myself that. He is somebody and I'm not particular found with hades. I've never gone out and bought these. Things that I do like a few of his sons but that's about eight by do recognize that he is an absolute genius at what he does. He's. With, the like his music or not he's he's a very talented man. Also as a businessman who so with his his mobile church should also with his fashion and things like that and as a typical bipolar person he comes to the. and He. He's tenacious and he does his fain and equally what I recognize part of Connie myself in a way that when he gets passionate about things and when he gets reading reading believes in his point he he becomes incoherent in some ways and his thoughts go all over the place and. He's emotions come out as somebody who obviously suffers bipolar. We know that we get real surges of emotion especially, if we think back to some saying even in that moment. An I look at him and I think yes, he could be having an episode but equally, he could just be so convicted at what he's going through. And he's just hyphen ECON quite express himself I. IT happens to me all the time I'm not having a ten. I'm just in that moment say what I'm saying. And I feel passionate about it but my words and my brain. Working properly together now is my kind of shake. You know we can look the other way and say, well, all the contest it. Men, they've ever been waves. They've all had problems. They vote literally they all had problems right? Whether they tend to alcoholism or drugs or bipolar or. Whatever yeah. So there were people can eat like that. You could call that conspiracy the congestion, some call eight and the other side you could look at as he's having a moment all I kind of thing I don't know I'm a bit on the fence. Yes he is being he saved some wild things by usage think that actually reading to him in context I just think he he's speaking his truce, but he can't express himself as he should and it's just coming out like he's crazy. But that's my personal opinion. People might think I'm crazy as for. Just. So hard to to really sort of know what's going on isn't it because I exactly just because of the world that he lives in daily I mean it so alien to pretty much all of us. You know I mean it's easy if you because you've actually been in the music industry and you understand. New Sort of seeing those circles in the entourage of basically people that surround people. But I mean for some. Let me. Just sort of had fannie valuable life the idea of of of living that welds and. Also, but also being bipolar as well. So the thing is when I have an exciting creative idea on my notes about and I might tell. Think, but you know Kanye when he has an exciting Craig's idea, he can do. He can actually do it because he's got money to do it. You know. So he does all these amazing things but at the same time, but then he has his other ideas and you kind of think but actually. It's sort of I. Mean I suppose I I one of the same thing about myself. Sometimes, you know like how much is the bipolar disorder and how much is me with Kanye? Expos look at him and I think what how much is is just kind of any is just his personality and and how much. Should we worried about him and a move well more. Most of the point you know like how much should his family and friends we worried about him but it's just a it must be a really strange well to live in in the first base just because if you're surrounded by yes men in whatever. Doesn't matter what how outlandish you whatever you suggest even if you are actually not not very well, people are still going to say, yes, to you, we have a pimple serve very controlling in the industry as well, and you have to follow a certain narrative otherwise again, you speak out about things. It's very easy to be discredited, and if you have something like a mental illness, that is what people will use unfortunately. So. That is how I'm looking at it. He likes of us. We have found bases like Connie I have thirteen point, two, million followers. So if I have these. DIS lease nurtures lease. I can't go out. Well, I could. I have as many followers to God and do all that and I hope that I wouldn't either. But equally when you are in a position that I mean you mentioned that if we had audience fans follow wings who love everything that we do in a way you're in a safe place that whether you have a bipolar moment or not to go here my here, my it's because you have this this circle of love in a way of adoration. But equally, you have a flip side where turn on you very quickly to take the in with social media. But the industry can be very controlling and you have to follow certain narrative or when people joan the first thing. People trying to do is discredit you and if you've got mental illness, then you'll give they've caught soldier now to us, and that worries me about my personal life I think one day with people do that to me because we so easy and there were times where people have tried to do that to me and I have not been well, Gee, see what I mean. So I think if people could do it to me up my level, they could do at Kearney as level. Absolutely and I'm sort of word same thing. Thing play out I thought the same thing united. What if I? You know what if I wasn't taking seriously if something in my career because like, say you dismissed Because something has to do with your pipe bipolar disorder I'm in its own. In a difficult position, he's in Yeah I. Just hope that he does. Get the right simple regardless of what it is. Because it's not a nice place to be bathed seems to have a lot of people around him but yeah, whether it's he is having an episode or whether he's just in a moment where he's reading speaking his triveni feels like he's fighting for himself and I just wish him well in hype that he he gets whatever he needs because he's a human being after all and we tend to forget that with celebrities. Can we talk bits now about Experienced in terms of challenges in terms of racism and mental health issues throughout your career. Well. In in terms of my career, it has had a major contribution. To believe was the onset of bipolar. I feel like as my psychologist said, it would have come at some point. He said you you never have reached an old lady and not have. Become bipolar basically was what he said in a nutshell and I believe him. Eights. Invention. I have had this career in. Can have had these great time and as far as I was concerned that was it music was my life I was going to be a pop star. I was living not life at work to that life and I was up to know that if you work hard for something, you'd achieve it and you'll get it. That's not real. Life is life is in, is like that and and I wish it was, but it's just not like that as we know. So, when the music ended it was it was a shock and it wasn't great and as I said, I became depressed go into TV. And to be an institution like TV like wow. But then my pays were the the likes event in day can Steve Him or her new presented with United Free Day and? TV tess Daly Holly Willoughby. Because we will all on CRTV in some guys whether it's sm TV live crtv we used to work together and hand over and and things like that. So as you can see, twenty s on, they've become household names and you can look at me and say, why hasn't she? Particularly she's got. As, she clearly must have talent creedy someone must Leica. Still be going now in the beginning I didn't locate as as a as rice Feng Bay in those days. When you to kids telly, it was very much of that is how commissioners found. The presenting generation of tomorrow. So to speak. And so they would look at the case presented and they would develop them then into. Mainstream and Tamen. Saturday. Night Shiny floor type show presenting. And they were taking each one suffice void that in day can that is highly and then he was Stephen, etc and obvious made lot promises that will calm and carry on present in crtv for us and We'll take you next and Blah Blah Blah, and that just didn't happen. So a lot of promises and not messing with my head. But okay, cool. You pick up yourself and you move on I got headhunted by Disney and that was great disneywor- fantastic and that ended and then off to that that's when I started experiencing just out racism in the industry not necessarily nasty like in-your-face Nasi however is still not not nice experience when you are hosting TV shows for example so. Obviously I can after Disney hosting various shows and one example was that a show that I was presenting was. Launching a new platform on a big channel which was more mainstream and maybe a in reading the be modest and say one of the. Most. Popular presenters on the other one eight would have been a given. That would have been moved across the to the mainstream, the big audience excetera but my producer tents around and said to me that I was the best present they had on the roster and they did have good presenters however I'm black and so. People take the outside of London. Viewers don't really want to see black people on their TV, and you won't be accepted and therefore damage the show black doesn't sell. that. Was My first time in my face. Did he go your Black Blah Blah now? He did. Does that mean he is not racist well of course it is. But even when that happened, I remember going high soaping my heart out on the. Just because I thought, I can't do anything about the color of my skin but he said the untalented and I'm the best how does that work messed if my head and I thought well, he can't be true. So I'm going to go knock on the door of all the other executives from BBC TV and all the others and see what they have to say and I did and I got meetings of all of their mini. It goes to show that obviously they must have rated me in some capacity will know me because the average Joe bloggs conscious go rock up and get meetings with high-power exacts at main TV networks. They all say the same thing to be honest with you which was that doesn't sell. You'll black. You know the only way that you could really be accepted as if you become famous at the next question is, well, how do I become famous if I'm not given an opportunity to be famous and again remember social media was it radio round? Say It's not like had the tools that people have today and also fame wasn't something that spayed me on. It was something that encouraged me necessarily because other ready experience fame when I was in the girl band and I lost it I experienced fame on cat. Lost after that after Disney when they was downtime so the industry's fickle you could be famous one minute and non famous the next we all know that now. But Yeah I was being pushed that that is the only way to be except to be famous. My question was well, how do I do that and the ounces where data footballer and get yourself in the magazines whether you have to fall out of a cab with your? Fresh because whether you have to get in with the cool crowds who are in the magazines and things are that wherever it takes do it and once you've done that, we can then give you opportunities because it just means that the view is already then they know who you are every schedule. Bad. And That constitutes a breakdown because I couldn't quite get my head around all these exacts you could change my life saying, well, you are fantastic you brilliant but we cannot we we have to put the gloss overview because you are black and this will damage out the popularity of show. How does that work in my mind? Equally, I've got people saying that I'm great and my job and I know that I'm at my job. So yeah, that just come. To a lot of things run know linear with everything else so. It hasn't been easy. I mean as a pool in. And also the fact that people were saying that floss out to your face itself is interesting. Isn't it? Because we have a lot of people talking about now? Besley microaggressions, all sorts of stuff but the fact that you have people who had just literally saying ECON into we call for us because you're black is. Very menteur fact it was very matter-of-fact into them. They thaw in that moment they were helping me they were advising me annex genuinely I. Think that's a horrible pass and they will racist I was just confused I. Took me years to realize my gosh, that's racism. Bounced back from this in terms of times will that because it sounds like a will really difficult time I've to fight event. Like I keep going back to I do not want to die as mortgage or whatever's say just real. In my right mind, I want to live when I mean my bad mind. It goes all over the place and that's the pace I'm afraid of how I have coat to manage is because it really is will die sink or swim and I realized this is over the last eight years of battling. Obviously, you get to know yourself, you get to your condition you get to know the demon that you fighting. So to speak, you get to know the cross that you have to bear and it's not easy and every day is a learning curve. But Yeah I learned more and more about myself and what I realized owning the last couple of years that I wake up every morning I have to make that decision. Are you going to sink or swim today and some days ago I'm thinkin ACCAN- account do it's Day going along the Sofa, I'm not going to get dressed I'm just not going to do anything. I still have those days. I. Had that day yesterday the equally when I dropped down wherever I go I. have. To Bounce back up I have to have have to find it within myself. I just have not and there is some really dates I have I have to fight it neither is brilliant instagram lives which fantastic great following on that. You also have a training academy. Mariah. Won't circles red carpet Kadhamy. Yeah. The Red Copy May and that basically came about of me wanting to share platforms to that other people can share their stories and their voices. It came out time where I had had an operation. I was in the middle of my bipolar episodes and I just I was afraid I didn't want to use my voice but yeah, I wanted to help people even in my own mess I wanted to help people used as and it ended up just being a lot of business people and entrepreneurs but eighty percent women just seem to gravitate to me there was something about me and they didn't. Even. Know my story yet nobody knew about my bipolar nobody knew my battle. I will be there. You know with shiny bells on giving one hundred, ten percent and I do these workshops for day or three day course and I would go home afterwards and I would cry I would saw because given all my energy to these pinpoint goodhart and they take him they share you're so amazing and listen to their stories and they would inspire me think I can't even speak my story icon even it mates of who I am and why have what my struggles until a year ago. That's the star spoke about it and that's how now I, have these following and Had A lot more support than I. Thought I did. See Yeah. That's how the Recovery Academy came about and it's been great now I see. So many people that I've trained on facebook lives on instagram lives they ichi channels and they speak they truths in that interview, the People and eight brilliant that that came about a time of such darkness for me and I'm glad I did it.

Ep 398 PODCAST | Red Sox Miss Opportunity to Unify & David Limbaugh Joins the Show

"The blaze radio network. On demand. This is Steve dates. The Steve day show. Greetings, happy Thursday. Welcome to the show here. Live on the blaze on demand at crtv. I am Steve days Todd and Aaron are here with me as well. Let us know what you think about what we think. Steve. It's dais dot com is the Email address. You can like us on Facebook. Follow us on Twitter at Steve dais show. It's the Thursday next. Our buddy, David Limbaugh will be here. His latest book is right in the wheelhouse of the Thursday. We'll be talking about that. Also coming up later in this hour, you know, there's there's a lot of a lack of self awareness. I think what we think is hypocrisy is really self-awareness issues. And in light of all the bomb scares yesterday, which apparently have continued sadly into this morning talk about unity and common ground and come into gather. Well, last night one of the events that used to this time of year be a perennial coming together of Americana had an opportunity to do something along those lines. And instead. It did even worse than kick. The can down the road. Pete on us and told us it was raining. We're gonna talk about that a little bit later on. But let's first begin with. Here's what's happened while we were away. What happened while we were away brought to you by bombs. We still don't know for sure what's going on. If the package is being sent to various figures are actually dangerous or who's sending them. But so far the targets have been George Soros. John Brennan's care of CNN, Hillary Clinton rock Obama, Joe Biden, and Robert deniro, again, we don't know who's sending these packages. But what we do know for sure so far is Brown in color. The packages have a similar identical components and the packages all have returned dresses belonging to a prominent democratic official. That's according to NBC news that official Relator learned as Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Here are the reactions of the media and leftist politicians. There's no need. There's no reason to assume motives to assume anything at this point. But we do know what all of these targets have in common. These are all targets that have been criticised mercilessly by right wing outlets. CNN president. Jeff Zucker says there is a total and complete lack. Of understanding at the White House about the seriousness of their continued attacks on the media. This is political terrorism. This is American terrorism. This is red versus blow terrorism. Jennifer Rubin is correct. We've never seen a mass assassination attempt on this level before. And we have to do everything we can to bring our country together. We also have to elect candidates who will try to do the same. You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for Schumer. And Hello say time and time again, the president has condoned physical violence and divided Americans with his words and actions of support for the congressman who body slammed a reporter neo-nazis who killed a young woman and Charlottesville and his supporters at rallies who get violent with protesters dictators around the world who murder their own citizens referring to the free press as the enemy of the people speaking in Wisconsin speaking, quite hypocritically, I just have to say he talked about explosive devices being center former government officials he made no mention of explosive device sent to this building behind me the headquarters of CNN news organization, he routinely attacks. He calls reporters the end. Emme of the American people, it appears making Kelley as being forced out of NBC. She had to apologize earlier this week for these comments. Because you do get in trouble. If you are a white person who puts on the alleys or black person who puts white fatality like I was a kid. That was okay. As long as you addressing character NBC announced the rest of the week of her shows will be taped the so called experts on Trump over the New York Times wrote a long and boring article, and my cellphone usage that it's so incorrect, I do not have time here to correct it and have only one seldom used government cell phone story is so wrong. The Boston Red Sox invited members of their two thousand four curse breaking team to throw out the ceremonial first pitch during the World Series. They forgot one person though. That's correct bloody sock schilling. But don't worry. It's not out of spite, according to management, the national debt has reached over twenty one point five trillion dollars and finally the centers for disease control and prevention warns against dressing up pet chickens for Halloween, and that's what happened while we were away in two minutes. Or less. We're going to have some more thoughts on this around of bombing threats. The AP has reported here this morning that this suspicious device or powder that was sent to CNN was actually not a bomb. According to their source, Fox News research, just put out a summary of what's happened over the last couple of days, the package bombs have included PVC pipe fireworks powder glass shards as shrapnel small like watch battery digital clock bridge wire initiator slash detonator covered. Also with black tape all packed in envelopes wind with bubble wrap. And I liked this series of questions. Sean Davis at the federalist put out here. Just a couple of minutes ago questions that need to be answered here sooner rather than later did any of the devices contain more than trace amounts of explosives than any of the devices have a blast. Acting cap slash detonator were any of the devices properly wired. That's a really good question to get an answer to obviously. Because that's the difference that that speaks to intent. Right. That speaks to whether this is. You know, a prank that is sadistic or this is an actual attempt terrorism did any of the devices have the capability to explode. So we're gonna talk a lot more about this later today on our roundtable at crtv. As more details begin to emerge, and we're going to hold off giving any opinions on this for as long as we possibly can outside of those details, and again, you know, the the lack of self-awareness here from every side of this. The particularly on the media side of this is just. I don't even know what to say. Honestly, we've never seen a mass assassination attempt like this June two thousand seventeen. And I was actually on CNN the following Sunday on a panel on reliable sources, and what did we talk about that day gentleman? Eight honing down the rhetoric following a mass SAS nation attempt. So. The Megan Kelly thing, I'm not even a huge Megan Kelly fan. She's she's actually if you if you washed her show on FOX she's fairly progressive in many of us. She's just. I would say maybe more aggressive version of Jake tapper. She's just doesn't like or spunky that's description. I think I've never understood that conservative obsession with her. She's really opposed to numerous causes that we believe in. But I do think she has critical mind. And I appreciate that. I do think she is interested in in in dispensing with double standards. Did you? See the way along those lines. There's dressing up when I watched that clip. I think I I'm watching her describe dressing up as a black character. Who has a black face when I think of a black face think of Ted Danson that stunt years ago when he was dating we'll be Goldberg got trashed for. I think of, you know, racist caricatures like Amazon, Andy, you know, Al Jolson jazz singer from another era that kind of what you think when you think of that. Yes. Is that what do you when you see when you hear black faces a millennial Aaron what do you hear these? Okay. I mean, I don't actually think that. But that's the way the word is used now. So. My all time favorite Halloween costume as a kid one of the few. I can remember is I was ten years old nine hundred eighty three and we lived to or nine years old nineteen eighty-two and we lived in Orlando, Florida. Well. Kisa me to be specific. And the incredible TV show was you know, the big thing on Friday nights, along with dukes of hazzard. Remember those days and the good thing about Halloween in Florida is it's still eighty five degrees. And so my mom. Essentially handcrafted me an incredible whole costing. And she. We had you know, tore out the sleeves and the cutoff pants 'cause you freeze trick or treating like that at night and Orlando Florida, I was actually gonna feel pretty cool and she went and got face paint. And I mean painted my whole body. My arms were green my face was green. My legs were green. Every part of me that was not covered by shredded clothes green. And we dyed my hair, the Lutheran no kind of orange tint, you know. And I mean, I I I was nine years old. It's one of the very few Halloween costumes of my childhood. I can remember because of the effort my mom put into that. If if if I'm dressing up as somebody in a way that is honoring of a character that is of a different skin pigment. I'm trying to figure out why is that racist? It'd be if my kid came to appropriating, your culture and showing dominance over that culture. Steve. Okay. So if my kid comes to me and says if Noah comes to me and says, you know, I want to be Jon Stewart Greenland and for next year, and he doesn't wear a mask, you know? Do I tell him? You can't be because if he walks around in a green lantern costume, and he's white. Everybody's going is anybody going to for of of anybody knows the Jon Stewart Greenland, it is. But those who do who who know anything about the green lantern corps. They're gonna sumit's the how Jordan green lantern of our childhood. And if he insists when he goes to knock on the door. No, I'm John Stewart Greenland, and it's why I'm not wearing a mask in like who's the Jon Stewart Greenland, he says the black one. And like isn't more racist to be the black character when he's white? I can't follow all of this. I I wanna tell me what I don't know what any of this means let me let me educate you, Steve. It's it's like, I said don't show dominance when you when you appropriate another culture, especially if you're Anglo actually only if your angle Anglo when you appropriate and other culture like using black face or using any character or any customs or food or cultural norms or trinkets or anything from another culture, you're showing dominance over that culture because for centuries Anglos have oppressed, those of different colors, especially black. And so when you do that, you're fending some people because you're probably triggering them. And it brings back so many memories, and you just can't do that. Because because we don't want our feelings to get hurt. Steve. That's why that's why. So my knowledge -ment. That in this particular area your way of life is superior to mine. So I want I want to embrace it an emulated which is inactive submission, I'm embracing emulating. You don't think about it? That's that's a pressure. Don't think about it. You're just racist. Okay. Don't think about it. You just racist? I really I know I know on our side, we well, if you're just not a cultural Marxist. They just get to call you racist. No matter what. And I know that there's truth to that. I can promise you. There's very few people in conservative media with the platform our size or bigger that has done more panels on MSNBC the last seven years than I have. Okay. So you guys, I I don't I I don't need Maga Mago Maga forever on Twitter with their fourteen followers to send me an Email and explain to me how the game works. I was in the front lines of this long before Cheeto Jesus came down the damn elevator shaft. Okay. But there's gotta be more than that. Okay. If we asked them. What they seriously with their issue. Seriously was with someone saying, you know, I kind of really liked the way your culture presents this or cooks this dish, or or this particular ideal, and I kind of want to pattern my own self after it, why would that be offensive because they hate you is there's no reason other than that. No, okay. If that's the only reason I'm fine with it. I just don't want to we don't like Strom in on this show. We don't do straw, man. Now that doesn't mean by the way that sometimes the one dimensional argument isn't all right. We're not saying the one dimensional arguments. Never true. We're just saying it's real easy to jump to that. And you wouldn't want people win dimension -ly shallowly show in shallow vape add manner defining who you are. And what your motivations are? Neighbors. You love yourself. I wasn't doing that a few minutes ago. I'm actually giving you the intersectional argument as to why they will say back to you. What I just said if you minutes ago you can't win this game. The only way to win is not to play and then destroy the game. Because you are simultaneously being told all the time by the same people that, you know, movie theaters networks, they're racist. If they don't have enough of X Y Z people in their movies. So you have to make these things. But then you also can't dress up like them or look like them, or if you're doing show about a gay character that character can't be a straight person playing them. That's an this isn't a possible. I mean it impossible game to win the question. You should ask these people why why should Disney be even if you can't dress up as a character? Why why aren't you protesting? Disney for making these movies at all if the very act of embracing a culture on any level by the pale face is somehow a violation. Don't play this game. Don't over think. It don't think about it at all defeat it period. So based on what you just said, it appears Megan Kelly has made the mistake here that a lot of your progressive kind of Republicans make with these leftists in in the assumption that we are the radicals where the crazy people for pointing out who these leftist stars. You're just it and that they can be accommodated, and it can be met halfway, and they can be satiated and so-. Megan Kelly goes to NBC the ratings have not been good. But you know, what? Nobody NBC's ratings in their news department is good guys. Like, if you took the total viewership of all of the the three major networks morning shows the today show CBS news this morning. Good Morning, America. If you took their total total viewership, it would be something like twelve percent. The people that voted in the last election. None of these ratings or any good. None of mar. But but she was a big prize a paid what was seventy million or so. All right. So seventy million or whatever for her. They bring her in the ratings or bad, but but they can't she's a woman. And so in in way, the this intersection -ality standard, you guys are defining has probably protected her a little bit, right? So they can't get rid of her for bad ratings as a woman because every woman and man on the air NBC has bad ratings because they all do. Okay. So he can't get rid of her for just performance. So the kind of needed to step in it, basically, they need her to violate the rules of engagement along the lines of what you just described. She went right up to that line in the cabin on hearing should we sat here and watched at that day in the studio, and she was the only person on the panel. That was adamant you don't just you. Don't believe all women women can lie. All right. I'm a defense attorney. She's like, you know, you get you get to defend yourself number we wash all that. Right. So. She he she kind of went up to the probably what the acceptable line for critical thinking is permitted over there thirty rock by going there. And then it was just a matter of. She played in traffic violated the very laws of intersection alley that probably stopped it from getting cancelled a year ago when our ratings have been terrible this whole time. And that's just kind of gave him the excuse. They were looking for is that kind of what you're saying here. Yeah. I am. You know that Seinfeld episode where Kramer refuses to wear the ribbon, and that's no the mob of that was part of the the cause du jour who who will know where been this. This is where we live. She she made the mistake of thinking she could go in in there. And and that is on her and ultimately triangulating her way through this. Again, that's impossible when they hire somebody like her one of their hopes is that they get to alternately do this to her when she was going one second Aaron see that again when they bring Megan Kelly or other people like her on who in some way, shape or form can be legit. Identified with the things of the right? I think she can she came from FOX. She get some Street Cry from his. Yeah, they there are many of them who are hoping that sooner or later they get to do this to her. I wanted you to say that again one because it shocked me to hear you say it loud. But to I wanted our audience to watch you say again. Or if you're listening to the podcast, and I tune, Stitcher, Google, play Spotify, etc. Here you say it again because I wanna make sure they understand whether you agree with what he just said or not this isn't you're not thrown some click bait out there, your this isn't your hot take. They tried to do it to meet I saw this with my own eyes. I saw them tell me things that made it abundantly clear that they just couldn't flat out say what they were trying to do to me. But I've I've lived so they want to have scalps. This is who they Meghan Kelly's mistake. Therefore, in your mind was getting into bed with these people in the first place is that. That's one of them or going in there, and assuming she'd be treated professionally fairly if you're going to take this job just go in there. You can't give a damn you can't. And she I mean, she kind of took the edge off. I think she thought she could be fun and likable and dance. Every once in a while. No. Yeah. That that that that gives if she was she would have had the same would everything would be true about what I would said. But she would have a better chance survive longer if she appreciated who they were and just was flat out better at that than I I know you think you're bad. But now, you're not as bad as me. I mean, you're never gonna corner me. And they're gonna get me, you, that's the attitude if you're going to go in that's the attitude days like your full of it. I'm walking off your show live. That's the attitude. You have to be willing to go in with not that they're ever gonna hug you. And like you they even the ones with a smile. On my face. And I've just been around these people a lot it's I've just happened to work up until this point most of my life has been spent being the the right wing guy in left wing dominated things and the cult the personality is only getting more wicked. They hope that sooner or later, they get to do this to you. All right. I'm sorry. You were gonna chime in go ahead. Oh, no. I mean, it was nothing is eloquent as Todd. But it is the analogy. I mean, she sitting here on that roundtable, you know, why is it racist? This is the way things used to be when I was a kid and at that point everybody else on the panel is going all idiocy the doctrine idiosyncrasy. Why come you know, gotta tattoo. That's that's basically what we just witnessed there as well. And as far as what Todd is saying that is an incredibly incredibly salient point. We just talked on before you came in the other day. Steve we talked about Rhonda's Santa's during his debate gubernatorial candidate during his debate with Andrew. Zillow Gillam the other day. It wasn't the most recent one. But it was the one I think over the weekend. We're he was asked about whether or not Donald Trump is a good role model for children. He came out. Totally flatfooted started talking about Trump moving the embassy to Jerusalem. How are you not prepared for those types of questions, you're not prepared? If you're not going into that environment. Knowing who you're up against you are up against basically, everybody, probably if the media is at least an extension of the national media down there in Florida. How do you come out flat footed, how are you not prepared for stupid questions like those that is that those are the type of attitudes that we need to have when we go into this arena. Not that we always need to be paranoid all the time. But just be prepared that you're not going to get a fair shake ever ever. Ever ever gets it? So Megan Kelly's mistake, you're was she thought she could find a middle way. She thought she thought she could find she thought she could give them David Gergen's politics without David Gergen's or Ana Navarro's slavishly slavish devotion to their narratives and talking points and non critical thinking, right? And that have if she gave them a half offering. And should be treated fairly and welcomed into the tribe. And that's just not how this world. Well, she also kind of believed her own horse Puckey that she somehow transcended something by how big she got at five snooze. That she got big because of we live in the silos and echo chamber. She she had to be at Fox News to be which he became if if she came up through the ranks anywhere else. I she's she is smart. She is talented. She's clearly beautiful. So she has the package to be successful on some level. But she reached demi-god status because she was at I think that's an excellent point to her success at FOX, I think is because the audience recognize that she was more of a progressive, and therefore her willingness, you know, FOX has has people that you know, that all these networks hire people from the other side of the political aisle to essentially before heels, and sometimes they're hired to your you. Are you are there, and you can really give your company line from your perspective? And sometimes you're there so that so that you're the you're the Republican contributor on CNN. So that they can say they can trot you on to rip the Republican. Narrative that day when they need you to and you're the democratic contributor at FOX. They can trust you on to rip the democratic narrative day when they need to Kirsten powers you were talking on the spot yesterday. They used to be her role on FOX. That's when she wrote the book, you're talking about silencing Kirsten powers was brought it was was there her role on FOX was to be the former Clinton east who had had a Christian conversion and was there to to talk to her friends on the left about how they were going to far, right? That was a role. And yes, this stuff is scripted as orchestrated guys. I mean, I had a producer at a major Cable News Network when I went in there for an interview towards the end of the two thousand twelve election who literally told me that the direction they would take their channel would depend on the election results. She told me that right there to my face. This is all this is all pro wrestling. This is not new it's infotainment is done for your particular audience and the audience that they want to reach. It's not even done for a mass audience. It's for the audience they want to reach and if even degenerates no rating say CNN, there's somebody that CNN. Say sheeting, they're satisfying with with the driving into the ditch of their credibility. They're doing on a daily basis. And that's what this is. It's the term buddy, David. Yep. And us the other day. This is yellow journalism is most of what we're talking about. And for all the problems, we have with media bias in the cable news is the is the it's the eighth ring of hell, it's the it's the darkest of the dark. It's not darkness before the dawn and cable news. It's the darkest. That's pitch-black nothing. Nothing. It's a black freaking hole. And is that a racist statement now using that comparison? So her mistake was she misread her success. This the fact that she was sort of the Jake tapper of FOX conservatives like watching her because you almost felt like if our narrative past her smell test, and we were right? It's saying that was the role. She played. And. I think she thought she was going to get to this on the other side and present herself is more likable and that awful gift with her and Rhoda. That's her name is at rota, the gal that should that. She does that morning show with. I think is okay. But. The reality is when she began to think, this was her success was ever about an honest presentation of her intellect ability. That's when she. That's the mistake that she made. Right. Well, one of the mistakes, she made absolutely absolutely. So is. Given all the advantages, you articulated that she had I think this is an important conversation about media culture. We're having right now, given all the all the advantages, she brings to the table at you, articulated a minute ago talk could a case be made that if if she can't navigate the media culture, you're describing. There's almost no hope that almost anybody. That was that would not be willing to conform to the board would be able to do. So the media is just you just don't ask Todd media's just I it's it's an extension or maybe the mouth of the river of of the rest of leftist culture, you look at this. And academia, you look at this any other institution that the left at progressivism has taken over. It is not America Crecy. It is it is. It is. It is the totem pole of of intersection -ality it if there's a word for that. Inter sexuality Oxy that is what it is. You will only get so far as your status on the intersection -ality, totem pole will get you. There is no room for merit anymore. She is okay. Let's put aside the looks for for for now. She's just good. She's intelligent. She's she's I think objectively she's our ticket. She can deliver news cash. She can deliver a story. Really? Well, and then I add to that the fact that she's a woman that she looks good, which is which are important thing is a visual visual medium. She has all of the things that you just articulated in. I did as well that would lend itself to being very successful in that environment. If it were America Crecy, but it's not because it's just an extension, and or the mouth of the river of the rest of progressive culture, and that progressive culture. As no room, no room for honest assessments, no room for anything that resembles objectivity because it is a Colt as we've discussed numerous times. This is why we've had what you just said is why we you guys have worked for over two years now mount of times we've discussed Megan Kelly, ever, go. To gosh. The only time we've talked about it in any significant amount was after the initial presidential debate hosted I other than that. I have no recollection. And that's because if what you just described I really don't care what happens to making Kelly's career, it's not my business, and I'm not never been a huge fan of a work. Anyway. But it speaks. We're we're we're getting a window to the soul of left us subculture here. Now, the mainstream media cultures newsroom culture, it's one of the central hubs of the leftist hive mind, and we're kind of getting a chance to see how it operates how the sausage is made in the way that that she's being treated has reprecussions. I think for a lot of us if these kinds of people gain total cultural hegemony along the lines Aaron just said. Here's the reason. We dispense fifteen minutes talking about Megan Kelly, and I think you actually had something else. You wanna ask me about this topic? But here's why this is important for our audience in for us to have this conversation amongst ourselves as those who live in the other America, the what's left of America. Right. So our show position is there are two Americas right now, there's the left America. And then there is what's left of America? Okay. For those of us that live in the what's left of America. You know when we hear? We talked about the Catholic church sex abuse candle. And one of the reasons we talk about it is because it's in the context of this is this is an institution that the culture looks to forgotten healing Justice to to light the way in these matters. Right. And. When they are in a position of prominence and influence and power to to light the way on that path. You bet it's news when they send us down the wrong road. Or when we have know. Protestant televangelists pilfering people, you know, ladies out of their retirement and things of that nature. These are in in the what's left of America. The church is a is an institution of prominence and influence in in that American culture. And so you bet the rest of the culture tends to and should pay attention to how conducts its affairs internally and treats other people to kind of get a hint about whether if it's my turn to deal with that institution. How might they treat me? What might they offer me going with this in in the in the left America, the media, the mainstream media is one of those? Is is is is a church in kind of institution in that America. And. I think as you're watching them relate to somebody who attempted to bridge this divide between these two Americas who attempted to have a foot in both of these camps. And you're watching the way they're treating her right now. If in this was after they essentially would her seducer in a way in term. I mean, they would hurt to come hither to come to join us. She walked away from FOX to do to go into this. And so somebody that they targeted somebody that they that they looked at and said, hey, we think this is the person that can bridge the divide between these two audiences. If they're good treat her this way. Then I think for the rest of us it it's new it's noteworthy to pay attention to what they might do to to to those of us who who won't even attempt to meet them halfway who openly oppose them. What do you think they might do to you if they're gonna if they're gonna do this that they wooed and seduced to come and join their team, right? That's exactly right. And that's why I just wanted to at least get a chance to ask you a two part question. And it's alternately a rhetorical question. The first part applies to me you've known me now for a long time. I mean, at least a decade and a half, you know, my capacities in terms of a writer thinker things like that comes razor per day of this. Is there any way I could have a twelve year career at the divine? Register and still alternately be forget, not necessarily become an editor or anything like that. But still be at the same level as as I started at when I was twelve years into it. But you've worked there. So you know, is there any explanation of and the fact that they ultimately liked Pershing me like they purge merge. Megan Kelly, and part of this is there any other explanation for the fact, and you didn't get a chance to talk about this. But you should that a walking talking fricking statue named Curt Schilling was not throwing out a first pitch with his team. Is there comes razor on either front? Is there any explanation other than the fact that you are marked well for those of you that are new to our show here on the live on the blaze one of the one of the our our mottoes that we didn't get to during freshman orientation last week is that autumn's autumn's razor is always in effect. And for those that don't know what that's a reference to comes razor says wind out the the explanation or conclusion that requires the fewest assumptions as the most likely always true. Okay. And another words the one that takes the fewest leaps in order to arrive at I've used this analogy to explain. Razer before remember the show the x files, right? So moulder just looked at lights in the sky and and crop circles and decided to plus tweak was four aliens are among us Sculley didn't want to believe aliens were among us. So she would come up with seventy five different theories that required ninety seven steps to arrive at all right win by the end of the show. You realize it's just a lot simpler to believe in what agreement. Species the rube Goldberg machine. Yes. So OXFAM's razor on motorcycle. That's kind of what you're testing to. And if I didn't have my own experience and think to say, this is your friend, and you would say this to me too is. You can't allow what happened to you at any anger or resentment. You may or not may or may or may not realize or wanted to admit to cloud your judgment, which is why if I had a similar situation that the Moines Register where they came to me for years ago. Like NBC news came to Meghan Kelly, and they're managing editor literally came and took me to lunch sent me down. And look me in the eye and said to me, we just had an Iowa caucus Eichel and our readership was way down because Brock Obama was up for reelection. And so he wasn't challenged and Republicans don't read our newspaper. You've got a national name amongst conservatives in Iowa, we want to bring you in a columnist, and we've seen you interact, as you know, with MSNBC in the last election and stay conservative without treating people poorly and being respectful, and and you have a mass audience in our state. So we think you're a good bridge similar conversation right with Megan Kelly and NBC news. We think you're a good bridge to reach an audience at his turned us off. Off. And I sent them the first column which after they announced it on the front page of the newspaper made a whole big deal about we're hiring Steve days to be our New Sunday columnist at the Moines. Register and the first column I wrote was not even actually going after the left. It was attacking Republican governor for the right from the right for not keeping his promise to shrink government defined Planned Parenthood. They never ran the column never explain to the audience publicly why they never ran McCollum. And then when I finally got them on the phone, they they they basically lied to me in open themselves up to all kinds of potential legal action. I could pursue because we had a contract is. But I just it wasn't worth it to me to pursue it. And and frankly, their parent company Gannett USA today called and offered me a chance to contribute to them, which is a bigger platform anyway, and that that means more the the platform means more to me than winning appoint a lawsuit. So I just let the whole thing go. So if I if I didn't have that experience myself with them, then I might be more inclined to say boy, you sound like you still might be a little bit angry about what happened there. But since I have had that. Experience. I know there's if you do sound angry about what happened to you. There's justification for it. Because the same thing happened to me. And it's it's right along the lines of what is when on here with Megan Kelly. What you're describing my point. How else do you describe this? And I'm glad you brought up Curt Schilling. So for those of you that don't know we just started at crtv. We started a new sport show that Curt Schilling and I do every day. It's it's real simple. We talk sports, and it is just about sports. I mean, my my the number one thing when crtv asked me if I would do the show number one real I had I'm not I'm not doing right wing sports talk. Okay. And God bless those that are out there doing it that are kind of doing the end ESPN Jiang. But for me, I get I do politics. I've done politics fulltime for a living for fifteen years. It's never been more toxic than it is right now. I need a scape. So that I don't allow this to consuming. So I was willing to do this. If it would be an escape. Mean we're gonna talk sports if you want me to do the right wing fact, checking of ESPN, I'm out go get somebody else to do that. It'll probably have a huge audience. There's definitely a market for it. I just emotionally mentally spiritually. I I'm injecting enough of this toxin every day on the front lines. I don't need another outlet. You know, I don't need another main line of political talk city into my veins, go get somebody else. And they're like, no, no, no. We want to do just to show that just talk sports, right? Then we're going to do it. And so all Curtin, I do is for twenty five minutes every weekday at crtv dot com is I come up with a list of sports topics with his guidance, and we get to as many as Reagan when twenty five minutes is done. We're done. And even though Kurtz got a podcast with Breitbart and some other folks he works with where he is, hyper political and partisan and everything else he enjoys the heck out of it as well. Because he he loves sports. It's it's an escape. It's a lot of fun. I mean, yeah, Steve's just his analytical mind, plus the perspective that Kurt brings being world class athlete. It's a lot of fun. So I've gotten to know we've not yet met in person. But in this day and age, you can guess you get to know people out more because of the digital age in which we live, you know. So I've gotten to know Kurt a little bit over the last few months, we launched the show in July and him, and I built a really good report. And. It's just a great, dude, man. He's just if you never listened to his political podcast at all. And you sit down and talk to him about dude stuff and sports stuff and his sons and his family and stuff. You would just be like he's just like every other cool, dude you've ever met that's such an important point. Because all of us in this room. We have no problem putting politics down and just talking about. That's the big one of the biggest sake. Can't stop. Won't stop. And we heard a lot of talk yesterday from the former vice president Joe Biden and a lot of others about the need for more civility the need for more unit unity. We heard a lot of talk about that yesterday in light of all these bomb threats we dealt with in in our in our political culture. Well. Tell me a place where other than the military, and that's going away. Tell me a place other than the high end achieving clubhouse locker room of a major college or professional sports franchise. We're guys from literally all over the country. And in case of major league baseball nowadays. All over the world. Now are coming from multiple hemispheres, religions belief systems setting those things aside over the course of one hundred sixty two games for the common goal of getting to this point in the season right here the World Series. Tell me tell me where would be better example to set for the culture of carrying out those calls for unity, and and perspective than that. And last night. The Boston Red Sox had a chance to do that. And they had a ceremony to honor the oh, fourteen that broke the curse a bunch of came out there and through the remonial first pitch and a guy that just lives. A stone's throw from Fenway park. Kurt lives on a farm outside of Boston never got invited. And you didn't hear about it from Kurt. He didn't bring it up because he won't because that's just not who he is. In fact, I got a text room last night at dinner. He goes, I just got home with the family. I saw I'm training number one on Twitter. What did I do? Okay. Well, he didn't do anything. What happened is Dan Shaughnessy the great sports writer at the Boston Globe pointed out that of all the luminaries on that team. Who were who were there to throw out the first pitch? There was one glaring omission. And it was the guy that pitched arguably you could make the case since Don Larsen's perfect game. The only perfect game in World Series history. You can make a case the most famous pitching performance we have in the in the in World Series history. Since Don Larsen's person perfect game was crucial exploding. Is one of the singular greatest moments in modern baseball history. You're the baseball fishing. I don't tell me I'm wrong. I'm certain it's certainly it's at least in the conversation. You're I mean, you're downplaying it. It's it's it is the conversation. He is responsible. He literally he literally wrist fourteen million dollar a year career that night. Life changing amount of money is how he Mandel used to say deal deal. He literally risked that that night to pitch that game. And to win that game. And to get that franchise over the hump and to win that ring. And he was also involved in the post nine eleven World Series with the Diamondbacks and the Yankees when that did help to bring the country together after a cataclysmic moment. In for the Red Sox to leave him out of there. And then claim they forgot. It's so demeaning, so dishonest Kurt won't say this. So I will. When people are this dismissive of you that they won't even tell you the truth anymore. That they don't think you're worth saying. You know, we just your political opinions are really charged and we didn't want to risk getting booed out here. And we want this to be a great event. And that's why we didn't invite you. But when they when they think when when they when they think so little of you there beyond patronizing that they literally they don't even just pee pee on until you. It's raining. They hold your mouth open while they urinate in it, and then tell you it's raining. That's that's that's the level of playing you for a fool that happened here. And. If we can't if we can't set politics aside, if you know, Curt Schilling for five minutes the last thing he was going to do is run out on that field with a Maga hat. Okay. Or an infidel t shirt like he wears on his Breitbart podcast, he understands he's guys he lived. He lived for eight months out of the year for twenty years of his life in one of the most diverse one of the most contain combustible atmospheres. You could imagine a major league baseball professional major league baseball clip where these guys travel the country together and live together eight months out of the year from spring training until they go home in the fall. So the idea that he would not understand the occasion, he wouldn't understand that this is not the time and place to have these iron out these things he would have gone out there. Just like those guys did and I asked him today. So you're you had a forty man roster on the oh for Red Sox. You're the only conservative the only Republican on the roster, of course, now and just on. On Tuesday, we did World Series or you guys did your World Series preview and asked him what is favorite memory of the World Series was. Yeah, I think he understands the Cajun that it is because his favorite memory of the World Series was going and spending time with first responders, and and different law enforcement around New York after nine eleven and recognizing that baseball gave him that opportunity to essentially be unified. That was so, of course, he's not going to go out there and just abused the occasion. This was a political statement made by major league baseball. This was right back to autumn's razor. Let's that's all bad. It was period end of sentence. And that's the thing when when they won't even give you when left America won't even give you the courtesy of opposing you honestly to your face anymore and treating this is a guy that risked his career his future. Earning potentially played in the majors five six more years after that night. Treat them like a man, you know, what I'm saying? At least man up say to him Kurt. You're politically combustible were pretty blue state got an election in two weeks. And it's just, you know, meant you made your bed. You may you get you chose to get political that you made that adult decision now, we're gonna make an adult decision. We don't want to hear some of our fans Boone you at Fenway park. At least treat him like a man taught at least do that. But to to punk him like that when they when you go to that card. Screw your calls for civility. I'm not even a human being to you. I'm not someone even worthy of of addressing man to man and treating me like a man and being honest with me that you just think you can punk me like that. And then and then this is the seventh grade. Well, we forgot we just forgot about him. You know, what man screw every last one of you? And he won't say it. So I will screw every last one of you for that at least man up and be honest with him. He. You owe him that for what he did for your team your city your franchise history because not a damn one of those guys on that field. Last night would have a ring if it weren't for Curt Schilling in, you know, why they do this for one of two reasons why they do this the way that they did that to Curt Schilling. And this type of thing has happened before the reason why people progressives do this the way they do this without saying or just being on you and telling you, it's raining is either one true believers and progressivism, so they're willing to take a hit a PR hit after that or two they know that there's not going to be one. That's one of two reasons. Either one is chilling. I know you absolutely wanted me address this topic on it by needed it. Basically just by leading into it. You gave me the opportunity, and it's about what you said about if they do this to him. I mean, really he's a walking talking statue as close as we have to in major league baseball because of that event. I mean, there's nothing in sport that quite compares to that three. Oh comeback. That was impossible the impossible happen in the Red Sox did it and they're here in the World Series again, and to not be able to honor that in any way, again, I don't I don't know alternately what the players out on the field new. But if if they in fact knew that this was going down and showing wasn't going to be there. If they knew that ahead of time, I'm disappointed on all of them for stepping out there and not standing with their brother in arms, that's a shameful. That was my concern too. I asked her on our taping this morning if he's heard from some of his former teammates, and he said, yeah, nothing I wanna share. But. He's heard from quite a few of them that were supportive because I'm with you on that man that I've got to believe they didn't have a clue that that was going to happen. I have to believe that. And if if they did, and they still went out there and acted like, it was okay, man. I don't care that. I never made it to a major league bait that's dude code violation. I I don't care if it's literally there's a there's a brotherhood thing there, man. You don't you? Don't let them again. None of those guys would have rings. No. And there's a German new Dino Velten song, it's taking pleasure and other people's pain. That is at the heart of progressivism. And we've laid it out case by case today. Our to is next year live on the blades on demand, crtv theology Thursdays. Stay tuned. And we are back with our two of the day show live on the blaze on demand at crtv. Let us know what you think about what we think. Steve at Steve day. Studt com is the Email address. You can like us on Facebook. Follow us on Twitter at Steve dais show. Last name spell DAC. Well, it is a theology. Thursday, our weekly segment devoted to theology. Or the study of God because he's kind of important here on the show and David Limbaugh who has of course, written numerous near times bestsellers, but the last few years has delved into the theological room with a series of books in the latest was just released earlier this month. It's called Jesus is risen Paul and the early church and David joins us here today on the show. Good to see my friend. How are you? Great. Thanks for having me. I know I talked to you when you first started this series. But this audience hasn't heard us have this conversation yet. So let me ask. The question again, David what what was the prompt for you to sort of make this transition in your writing into the into these strict theological room. What prompted this? Well, when I became a Christian in my mid thirties. I was so excited about the Piff ni that the bible really is the word of God Jesus as son of God. I was raised as a Christian, but never really embrace the God of the bible, even though I believe in God. And it was just because I was negligent and getting around doing my due diligence more than having investigated it and rejecting it. But so once I did I was excited and wanted to share that passion. So I started a book on the Old Testament, and it didn't get anywhere. I didn't have a platform and then after writing fifteen years with columns and five books on politics. I thought I better platform. So I went back to this passion and started writing Christian themed books. I was about my spiritual journey than Christ. And the. Old Testament last book was about the gospels. And this is about the book of acts history early church and six of the puzzle Paul's thirteen pistols, so I've just really haven't excitement about the bible in one a help share that passion and hopefully night an interest in in readers to read the bible more themselves. Who would you say David somebody watching or listening right now? And they're like, you know, it's a dusty book and doesn't really relate to the stuff. We're dealing with today. And it's kind of a sobs fables with God talk. And I don't see how it applies to my life. Now, I think given the book you just completed in the portion of scripture that you just wrote about you might be the most uniquely qualified than you've ever been in your spiritual journey answer those questions because when I took a group of high school students that I was teaching world U2. last year here in Des Moines, and I took them through the entire book of acts, the the contemporary parallels to the conversations were having everyday in the culture. It was stunning. And you when you go through the book of acts, and then you hop on your Twitter feed and check out the headlines, you truly see which Solomon meant by. There is nothing new under the sun. These are the same arguments we were having two thousand years ago. Yeah. And that's so true. Someone asked me what what Paul would say if he wrote a letter to the churches today are if you had an opportunity to meet with some of the churches today and experience some of these problems. I said interesting question, you know, when he wrote these letters to address mostly local concerns of churches, he's he planted and he treated them as babies he'd given birth to if you were married. If you were given birth and that when I got off the path he he was correcting them and bring him back on don't follow the false. Teachers don't fall into this trap of being lured away from the true gospel by these false, teachers and these secular pay and people who are immersed in sexual idolatry with Aphrodite the sex goddess in the city of cork city of Corinth kind of like the the Las Vegas today. And I said, Well, Paul actually would do is he would give them copies of the letters that he'd already written. He made out of known. They were going to end up in scripture and have universal applica- -bility, but God knew and God chose him before the foundation of the world to make him his primary apostle to the gentiles. And these letters do have universal ability. And and as you said, Steve, it's amazing how these problems repeat themselves. No new things under the sun. Human nature has not changed in two. Thousand three thousand years, even though our science technology has advanced we have not as human beings, David. Let's chat for a minute about the selection, which you just alluded to the selection of Paul to be this apostle to me, I think it really speaks to the providence of God the sovereignty of God, I think some people have this notion that you know, they were they were just sitting up there any turn ity, and they they spun the wheel a destiny, and they flung a dart on the board and it landed on solid Tarsus. When if you look at the first century and the culture of the day, the amount of people who had two things going for them at the exact same time. One Paul is of revered Jewish scholar theologian and apologist. So he is he is revered throughout the covenant. People of God, he is therefore he's going to be welcome to the front door of every. Synagogue in the known world just on reputation alone. But he also had something else going for him. He was a Roman citizen. And so that meant he that he could go just about anywhere in the civilized world. He had a certain level of civil rights that the average Jew did not have because of his Roman citizenship. And we see him in the New Testament use those to his advantage when he's falsely accused and imprisoned. So I would imagine the list of people in the first century who were both revered elite level Jewish scholars thinkers, theologians and leaders. But we're also Roman citizens that gave them the freedom to go anywhere. They wanted to within the gentile or non Jewish world. I gotta believe that's a real small list of people there, David. It's this isn't a random coincidence at all that this is who got shows, exactly. And he was also fluent in Greek and he was learned in Greek and even recited Greek poetry and Greek writings when he was a meeting and arguing with the Greeks and Vangelis. To them because he is philosophy was that he would meet people on their own level. So he could relate to them. Never dilute the gospel, always keep the gospel, pure, but not sweat the small stuff. I'll be all things to all people when I'm around Jews all observe their dietary laws when I'm around the Greeks recite their poems. I can relate to them plus his other qualifications. He was extremely intellectual. He was passionate. He was relentless. He was steeped in the Old Testament laws. You said a Jew of Jews affair Assi from tribe of Benjamin. And if you'll read his arguments and his speeches when he's trying to set forth the gospel. He calls on Old Testament scripture as do some of the others, Stephen and Peter when they're writing these their books are giving their speeches, and he's able to explain how the New Testament is a completion of God salvation stories part to God's two part story is redemption history the bible. It also explains how g. Sus is the fulfillment of the law. Not the abolition of the law. He's the Gaza fulfillment of all the prophecies made through the Old Testament prophets Paul has an intimate understanding of that. And so he can explain how Judy is. How Christianity is not a perversion of Judaism does not totally destroy it. It just completes it. And he's able more better than anyone else. I think to make that argument talking to David Limbaugh, multiple New York Times bestselling author his latest book Jesus is risen Paul in the early church. He's our guest today on the blaze on demand at crtv. One of the great challenges that he had to deal with as an apostle as a messenger of the truth of a new way or the way maybe is a better way of describing it was the method of communicating to different people in different settings. And I think this is something that is unique challenge for guys like you. And I that work in the media, and whose opinions are asked for on a frequent basis, but really anybody who's watching us right now or listening to the. Podcast later, David if you have a social media account, you have the exact same challenge as a believer. That Paul had as an apostle bringing this truth to the places of Corinth, which you you reference. The fact that Corinth was so depraved, even by Greek standards. They were their own verb that you were Carinthian is even by Greek standards. They thought the Corinthians were a depraved bunch you emphasise where the entire economy of the community was based on worship of false God, for example. All right. So so we I confronted with us a lot, and I have to navigate this. You know, when when Paul confronts, the Judah is in Galicia who want to worship circumcision. He snarky tells them, you know, if you'd love circumcision so much cut your penis often be especially holy right. But then he also says, you know words of love seasoned with salt. And is he contradicting himself and one of the ways I've tried to reason through this and have it apply to the way. I do my job is I think you alluded to it. A few minutes ago, Paul as a parent. You know, I need my motivation is apparent whether when I'm correcting my son after a game. And I'm like, hey, your behavior in that game was not good, and I will not tolerate it is the same as I know you tried your best. It wasn't good enough. I'm proud of you. Anyway, the same motivation when I rebuke or when I lovingly support is is love I'm rebuking amount of love because I want to get his attention because that behavior just isn't going to be tolerated. And it's to his downfall. If he continues it, and I in my my motivation is love when I when I have is back, even if he failed at something by the world's standard. And I think rather than try and have this scorecard of how nice can be nicer than God. Can we be meaner than God? I think to have the motivation of God, which is love whether it is a harsh rebuke, like you're the your son of the devil, or whether it is words of love seasoned with salt. I think these are lessons of how Paul and his followers had to navigate that culture. Our great guide post for those of us living in this media and social media world today. I totally agree. And all you're right point out, especially like in first Corinthians where he is sarcastic alternatively, and then and then just totally intimate and and loving. But I think what you're saying. Correct. Try to find a balance be winsome about it. But but tell the truth in love and don't don't compromise truth is trying to be diplomatic about it. Don't try to turn people off and shaming him be Christian Skuld. But do tell them the truth that they need to know. And they need to understand. I think what you see in these letters of Paul somebody who's raw just he wears his emotions on his sleeve, and he's honest about it you see how intimate how how personally grieved he is. When these people that he in the churches, he planted fall away and follow. The Judy is follow the false teachers and he's pleading with them to come back. And he's also answering the people who the false teachers who accused him of building himself up and taking money skimming off the top in these in these aid packets for Jerusalem, which he was gonna take back to that. Of course, I didn't do that. But in his response, he sometimes as you say snarky sarcastic. But he doesn't in a way I think not to be a smart Aleck, but in a way to defend himself because he's not personally defending himself as he says, I'm not I'm only boasting in Christ. But it's important that he rehabilitated himself when they've not down because if he doesn't the whole gospel could fall because it lives and dies on his credibility. He has to stand up for his own thority which received directly from Christ. And he received the gospel. I believe super nationally directly from Christ. And so he he when he went when he wrote these letters he was issuing pure doctrine. And it was critical that they not dilute perverse that that gospel, but your point about meeting the people where they are. Our Ravi Zacharias when my favorite apologised today says in another way doesn't say I'll be all things to all people as Paul said he said, no the questioner as well as the question him where he is. Yes. And you see you see Jesus do this too in the gospels often you see him return snotty question with a snotty answer or snotty question. Because if you're coming at me from snotty premise, then there's the difference between not knowing the truth and not wanting to know the truth. If you're if you're a skeptic that is earnestly seeking even even if even if you think when I believe is full of bunk, but you're interested in an earnest dialogue, man, I'll sit there, and and talk to you Mercifully and gently as long as I possibly can as long as we're treating each other like adults the minute you come at me with one dimensional straw, man arguments and snark, you see Jesus in the gospels. You see Paul in his letters? That's the tap out. That's when these guys are like, we're just. Not doing this. I'm not I'm not dealing with. Trolls and haters today. See ya. In in our situation on Twitter. It may be a little different in that. It's out there for the public to see. And we have to be careful as Christians to be good witnesses. I'm so tempted to be snarky and unload on people, and I try to restrain myself because I think in the long run it really redounds to the benefit of the message. You're trying to convey, I don't say perfect at it. But I try to be nice to people even if they're rude to me. Although sometimes I'm not I don't deny. But overall, you've got people out there looking at you. And especially if you're a conspicuous Christian out there, you're going to be held to a higher standard injustly. So, but when we're articulating our political conservatism are Christianity, I think why we have to draw sharp distinctions not allow false messages to be to to stand. I think we have to try not to meet snark with snark as our first response if we can help it. One of the things you allude to in this book, and it blew me away. When I studied the New Testament really for the first time as a believer looking to have it trance renew. My mind used one of the New Testaments expressions when Paul's expressions, one of the things that just blew just knocked my socks off is how so many of the arguments I had against the faith when I was a skeptic, and so many of the arguments I was now facing from skeptics now that I'm a believer are preemptively deconstructed and just utterly annihilated. In often. I look I look at Romans in my opinion. I think Romans is the greatest single theological theological treatise ever unleashed upon mankind. It's like the apex of Paul's understanding with inspiration of the Holy Spirit. And I look at look at every theological argument against the faith and Romans hundreds thousands of years before some of them were brought to bear confronts them and deconstructs them almost preacher naturally. I mean. It's it's incredible. When you study these New Testament works just how critical thinking they really are. Yes. And you read them at curse to you that they were written in those in that case two thousand years ago, you're going just learning about this. Shame on me. That is me when I started reading these for the first time these arguments have been questions have been asked and answered as you say preemptively in one of the things Romans is one of the six books. I do cover in the, but Jesus resum I love Romans is description of the depravity of man. And also, I believe it succinctly states Romans one eighteen nineteen somewhere around there that the glories of God's creation are so pronounced and so self evident that man is without excuse to deny is existence. I just love that. Because I believe that everybody in Neethling knows there's God they actually nightly know that the God of the bible has got even if they have a primitive understanding of who he is. And may not understand that try you nature, but we all have God written on our hearts, and to the extent that we don't know what it's because I think we're an open rebellion. Maybe not consciously. But to some extent we are. And I find that just totally fascinating and air refutable when you compare it with your own experiences. I find you know, I know in our culture of convenience today. We like everything one hundred forty characters or less bottom line, everything for me and not everything in this universe. You can do that with. But I do think I'd like to get your take on this. Whether you agree with me or not and find if you don't because I could be wrong about this. But when I get people, I get questions all the time from people, you know, is this a good shirt. Join this church, and I leave this church. Like, I'm some kind of you know, inspector twelve into Moines Iowa. But one of the things I try to give people without knowing their situation or visiting where they're worshipping which your church. Hey as your church gone through Romans ever. And when they did how did they approach? Did they take it at face value? They skip whole chapters because Romans to me you can't water it down. If you try it is. It is it's. You can't walk into geometry class and say I thought we were here to do our timetable. See what I'm saying? I mean Romans is next level stuff. And I kind of think you can tell a lot about world pasture is at by their willingness to confront tackle this and teach this to a congregation as it was actually written. What are your thoughts? I can't deny it. And and on a broader more expansive base to answer your question. I think the the question with churches are whether they are willing to address him or only willing to talk about salt might the Joel Alstine prosperity gospel. The gospel doesn't promise us, by the way will the more faith. We have the greater our lives will be in terms of material benefits quite the opposite. If we if we're adherence of the faith, and we're faithful we might experience more persecution or more discrimination, or whatever but addressing sin and addressing the questions of homosexuality and all that. We have this this pressure in the modern shirt to conform to the culture. And it's always under the pretense that you have to get word out and expand the base because you want to open up the gospel to all kinds of people in the culture, and unless you do it on their terms change the music, even dilute the message, you're not going to get them in the door. And then they'll never find Christ. I real problems with that. If it goes over the line and starts diluting the gospel or starts running away from Sam our start are saying that anything goes in Christianity or gets away from the gospel of faith alone. And Jesus Christ for salvation if it crosses those lines. It's in big trouble. But I do think you have to strike a balance. It's okay to change the music and all that as Paul said, don't sweat the small stuff. But you've got to be careful. Not to dilute got a real snick. Learn on that and address the questions of sin. We have to address them because we're all centers we fight it the power of the Holy Spirit every day of her life. Is. One of the things I think that Paul does that maybe if you haven't really studied what he writes closely is he is unabashedly confronting sin as you just said, but there's almost a rhythm. You see this enrolments? But you see this is all of his pistols. There's almost a rhythm almost like he can almost sense when those of us that have already been converted those of us that are growing in our faith are starting to kind of puff our chest out and get a little self righteous. Yeah. Stick it to the pagans stick it to those skeptics, we're scoring points here. Baby. Right. You can almost sense. He senses it and then the symmetry of his writing he will then right win. He is. So reinforced the believer camp. And so good at us up in defending our faith that they can almost smell the self righteousness Innis, coming through our pores, he then. We'll turn right and put the and the double edged sword turn it. Right back on us and say now, remember, hey, you guys aren't absolved of blame. And responsibility. In this as well. And I think that's one of the true challenges of studying the New Testament is that dining, that's a very good point. And again, he says don't boast unless you're boasting in Christ. And he's aware that and he even talks about in chapter seven, I think of Romans he does the things he doesn't wanna do scholars debated. Whether he's talking about before he was saved or after I think it's clearly after it was saved because he wouldn't even care about it more. And so he's saying Paul the most ardent Christian now after he's converted still struggles daily with sin. He's that's that's really actually ironically are paradoxically reassuring to those of us who know we still have sin in our lives and combat it through the power of the Holy Spirit. But we've got a place ourselves before the Holy Spirit. We talked about this this paradox to between effort and no effort and grace everything's free. God does all the work. Yes. But I think we have we have a responsibility to place ourselves before the Holy Spirit. Practiced the spiritual disciplines and grow more in that way and be able to combat sin more effectively powerful powerfully than we didn't. But it was we start getting smuggling complacent. Not only will it hurt our own spiritual growth, I think it's a real turn off to other Christians. It's one of the things as before I was a believer in turn me off more than anything else. And I can relate to people who still say today who aren't believers how Christians act like skulls, and and holier than thou sanctimonious, we've got a really be careful not to do that. Because of all we recognize that we're centers, and we were given the undeserved gift of salvation Jesus Christ. And Paul all mix point he's the least of all deserving because of what he did before. But boy, he sure earned it back not back, but he should give back in in great measure after he was converted. Final question. David is you got as you were going through this book and the research in the like that you did for what? What was it? That impacted you the most as a believer going through the exercise of putting this book together. Well, when I as historian Paul Johnson says there's no way to learn a subject better than to write a book on it because you have to really studied intensely in this case like you. I've read the bible and the books viable several times many times. So the Renault great a pekingese in on a micro level. But overall what happens when I do these books and what I did this. Specifically, I read the book of acts and these six six of Paul's epistles missionary pistols, once he was believed to have written. I because I wanted to keep this in a chronological context, you read these in close Jackson position in timeframe, and you really feel it you really see how things fit together, and you really feel Paul's human humanity, and how authentic human being he is. And you see how these problems are so real, and they're so related to the things that we experienced today. So the more you read this the more. Relevant. You see it is to your life and the lives of other believers and non-believers as those you approach. So my my overall profiting from this book is just getting an intimate knowledge of the scriptures in the closer. You are to to the scriptures. The closer you are to God understanding who got is. And hopefully, the better relationship you'll have with him, David Limbaugh. The name of his new book is the fourth in his series delving into theology. Jesus is risen Paul and the early church, and it's going to see my friend. Thanks for joining us here today. Very much. You're welcome. Get some reaction. What we just heard from David Limbaugh time. Let me start with you. Because there's a broader there's a broader application here in that a lot of the notions. Not all I mean, some came from lock in Hobbs and. Basquiat and others. A lot of the things we take for granted as the foundations of American exceptionalism come right out of the stuff that David. And I we're talking about today. The idea that your rights come from God are dealt right? From the idea you're made in the image of a loving God. The fact that he sent his son to die for you. As an individual shows how much the the notion of the individual matters in the kingdom of God. And therefore, governments should should align their prominence that they that they on the rights of the individual in line with with what's been demonstrated by the creator of the world through his son a lot of this civic traditions. We have as Americans come out of the conversation that David, and I were just having a lot most actually, and this has been documented I've mentioned him in his book on the show before the the now departed, Michael Novak, Catholic writer and thinker. Who wrote a great book, you gotta. God and get it. It's called onto wings scripture, and the reason that was laid out again by a lock Mont skew and others and Novak uses researchers have done a deep dive into all of the writings of the founding fathers, including the the ones that weren't for publication their diaries, everything they wrote, and and it's conclusive by five that the the the thing that the pointed to the most as the foundation of the country they were trying to create hoping to create was scripture before lock before Monto skew vaber, there is the thinkers who ultimately accented that who in their own life's head rift on that. But it was alternate -ly. You couldn't have one without the other scripture has always been foundational end up a problem. We have these. Days. I like David live uses the term intimacy, not we don't have a intimate relationship with scripture very much anymore or with our founding documents. That's why we we kind of vaguely understand notions of rights where they come from or the or the stories laid out in Paul's a pistols, but we don't know them intimately anymore as a friend, and therefore we aren't prepared in moments. This is why Catholics have saints. I a Protestants had their own versions people. They've been inspired by they hold them tear. And when they come to the tough roads in life because of that level of intimacy they know how to act they don't have to stop. I don't carry the one. No, the math is inside them that is so important to get intimate with both scripture and reason on a level that can deal with this like eleventh hour stage of a crisis in. Cher- otherwise, we will not prepared. When our moment comes. We think. Great conversation. Always love hearing from from David Limbaugh and along those lines. That's why in Todd quotes often. But that's why John Adams said our constitution was devised for a moral and religious people, and it's wholly inadequate for any other form of people. If there if there was a way to devise a secular government from a secular basis that had the amount of prosperity that our country has in the short relatively short amount of time that we've been around don't you think we would have seen that by this time in world history. It's because that it's because the basis of our founding is in these principles not just out of not just out of the philosophers. But because the philosophers who who brought to light practical five shouldn't say, practical broader principles as far as government goes. They're basis is in scripture, and we talked about this all the time. While you bring up this. You know, the scripture itself is not adequate for figuring out what the speed limit should be. But that's in the grand scheme of things. Those things are not important. It is the roadmap every significant framework of how to live with each other on this planet, and the sooner we get back to understanding that the better awful, more theology. Thursday coming up here next. I have some breaking news here. He has no mind take a little time out from theology Thursday. But there's some breaking news that I want to address that. I just shared this link up on our Facebook page just look up Steve days on Facebook. You can read this letter for yourself. But Senator Charles Grassley who is the chairman of the Senate Judiciary committee from our neck of the woods here. And I. The Senator for life has sent a letter to the US department of Justice address directly to attorney general Jeff Sessions, urging the criminal prosecution of attorney, Michael vanity and his client. Julia sweat, Nick in this letter, which I was just reading through during the commercial break Grassley accuses. I mean, this thing is about ten pages with numerous footnotes. So a lot of prophecy evidence that the Senator offers for these charges, but he wants Evans and sweat Nick prosecuted for three felonies three they are conspiracy to defraud the US government material, false statements to federal officials and deliberate obstruction of a federal investigation. So three felonies. Now, remember, Julie, sweat, Nick. She was the one that claimed bread Cavin on is Georgetown prep buddies were targeting women for their marauding band of gang, rapists. And she was she did the interview on MSNBC which spectacularly face planet and MSNBC's reporter Ed to come on screen afterwards and say, they could not verify any of the claims she made in fact, everything all their reporting contradicted or claims this was after what was it assigned affadavit or deposition? And you'll recall that when Evan came out with a sworn affidavit. Do you? Remember what I tweeted ten minutes later. He's either going to get disbarred. Yes. Somebody's done here. Yeah. Yeah. Either bread Kavanagh's done here, or he's going to be disbarred because these are sworn affidavits guys. This isn't this isn't a news release. Pardon me. This isn't. Nicole Wallis former bushy who has a Anna Navarro esque, another journalist, that's permitted Trump to make them insane. This isn't what crazy talking point. Do. I have to give Nicole Wallace to get another booking on MSNBC today. Oh, no. No, no. You're now using the machinations of the law itself, you're not using your platform as an attorney to grandstand. That's called a day that ends in y in America. Okay. You're using the machinations of the law itself to advance your political agenda. So when you start lining up, sworn affidavits, this is not this isn't minor league stuff. Now, you're using the machinations of the law. She is swearing, and I read the affidavit she swears under penalty of perjury that her allegations are true. So either he's lying. I I there Michael eighties. Totally ambulance chasing fraud. And I think do use Todd's reference to autumn's razor from earlier in the show. I think we've got do we have is this an isolated incident for Michael Eddie air. And you wanted to say what I wanna see if Todd and I are thinking the same thing. I think we probably are his odds of being the nominee. Just went up by two or three times. Thinking the same thing. Todd. I'm with you, brother. I I disagree guys. I think he's gonna get buried. I think I and and I have you know. Jeff Sessions a couple times. I don't know. I'm nearly as well as buddy Daniel Horowitz does. But I was excited when he was nominated for attorney general I thought it was maybe the best cabinet higher. Trump is made. I don't really, you know, the whole Russia collusion, and he doesn't fire. This. I can't we have we have barely covered that story on our show because I just can't I I don't know what the truth is, man. And so when when there's been major things like the Nunes newsletter we talked about that and broke that stuff down. But I just I can't get into the daily. Our position on that stuff is I'm not gonna defend Trump more than he's gonna defend himself. So if he wants to release all of the Feis documents and warrants, and we can know the truth, and they and they back him up. I'm all in on on that. But until he does that I don't know what I know. How do I know what I know? And how do I know what I don't know. It's the the story is beyond confusing. So I'm not into run Jeff Sessions because he didn't fire this guy or that guy. I don't know what the truth of that stuff is. If Jeff Sessions doesn't follow up on this. I'm all in on fire is asking three seconds. Fires ass. Three. Freaking seconds. Second favored. Yeah. Say I and the is have it. It's unanimous at some point. You know, what is Shannon joy our contributor on our day group roundtable periodically. What is your? She's got this thing on her show there in New York where she won't get into these stories until there's actual evidence. Someone's going to be held accountable for once my is that kind of her position my paraphrasing it, I think so. Yeah, I think that's actually a pretty good rule of thumb. Yeah. Her kind of thing is against some of what we said about Trump in the wiretap, and he's falsely accused and everything how what why the case the president of the United States. It can declassified anyone's anytime he wants. So what good would me other than it's good for my audience to grow it other than that. But why should I spend any of my political capital or credibility ever little? I have defending him when he. All the power to release all the evidence that would defend himself far better than I ever could. And I don't know what that evidence says until he does right, right? That's sort of what Shannon is saying here. Well. These people swore under oath these allegations. They submitted these allegations to the US government. At some freaking point the American people need to see somebody held accountable for this crap enough. You don't just sit there if we're going to be at a point in time in history now. Well, you know, it's a sworn affidavit threat of perjury days. Everybody lies. It's just like a press release just talking point, you know, what? Then officially changed the stars in bars to fricken gaggle of bananas because this we are fishery banana Republic now if we're going to let this ambulance chasing fraudster use the machinations of the law, not just his title of lawyer to get on cable news, which is the blackest of black holes in a culture going dark it to spew more bile, but we're gonna let him use the Bischel machinations of the law itself to defraud the American people and assassinate the character of people and nothing will happen. No charges, no accountability whatsoever. When we know the guy just got a four and a half million dollar judgment on vixen judgment against late from his landlord from not paying his rent. He's got millions of others of fines and liens of the guy. Is a fraud and our cable news networks just allowed him a place of unfettered prominence in the culture for months. This went on every day. He was doing multiple shows a day MSNBC and CNN in the same day. This went on and on and on. And now we're gonna let him go to the point. You know what what's the name? What's the name of the children's book to give the mouse, cookie? Why are we shocked that we let a fraudster fraud his way into a national television gig one hundred seventy four million dollars over sixty four day period of worth of media? That is incredible. That's absolutely incredible. So we're going to let him gain one hundred seventy five million dollars a free media. And then we're gonna turn around and allow him when we didn't discipline him before. And now we're going to let them use the actual machinations of the law itself to fraud, the American people hell to the no, and if sessions in those people at DOJ, they aren't on this in in ten minutes tomorrow and coming on here fire. A all enough is enough is enough people need to be held accountable for their actions. And the American people are just freaking sick of this crap dot. That earlier in the week when I we were talking about Cory Booker, and he was dealing with what I still believe. I haven't heard anything to country were anonymous accusations of what he may or did in terms of a somehow a costing a another man back in two thousand fourteen I think it was going to leave with some sort of sexual advance my comment, then was we need to take Justice as far as it appropriate along the same lines of Steve's talking to stop this kind of thing. And then we should let mercy to kick in hoping he learned his point. In this specific case. I mean, arrogant help steep Nomer see for none will be offered to you you need to absolutely follow through on this. As a matter of pure Justice. That does not apply to democrat Republican slave nor free purple or green. Cavanaugh or not cavenaugh. This is about all of us now. Otherwise, TV is exactly right. You have become a slave to tyranny if you will let the very system of government that you are by definition supposed to be the boss of so easily put you under its thumb. I am so pleased. This actually gives me a degree of hope that people are waking up. This is everybody whose instincts right here is, you know, go tribe live in your silo. You've got it all wrong. Do not do this. Because you want to see the specific guy like avid sank, even though he is everything Steve said, it is either we do this or. I already believe absolutely be. The revolution is already had had. We have lost our system of government. But this is just if we if we do not follow through on this. If we're not successful in this run. We it's just going to be that much harder to recover. Yeah. If this is not followed up on immediately, James Madison, or anyone of the founder of the founding fathers is going to come back from the dead co over to Washington say cool constitution, bro. Also, I'm out of toilet paper that that that is that is where we will be at. I'm totally with Steve this is banana Republic we already well past the banana Republic stage of this. I okay, we're since we're already giving hot takes here at this point under our law and order president with one of the most culturally conservative, I guess you could say. Attorney general's at least of my lifetime. Probably the most of my lifetime. One of the most of you guys lifetime. If he does not follow up on this is a time for us to start kneeling during the national anthem. Because this is this is this is if this is if Jeff Sessions does not follow through on this. There's no. What are we what are we doing? What are we finding for the freaking attorney general who is supposed to be a culture warrior in a Republican administration? And he doesn't stand up. If he does not stand up the rule of law. What's the what's the point? Interview yesterday with Jonathan done who does a show here for the blaze radio as well. And one of the things that came up in our conversation is that. He mentioned that he did a tour of America last year, sixteen cities across the country, and you talk to people Republicans Democrats apolitical, and when when partisan politics was divorced from the conversation, and they just discussed principles. I mean how much and how often they agreed. And he asked me, how do we tap it? How does your country tap into that? And I said I told Jonathan that the problem we have is that right now there is not a vehicle in our culture for the kinds of people. You talked about to act on those shared principles outside of the partisan political process. And that all of the vehicles are founders gave us a free press, which we spent a lot of time talking about yet again with what's going on with Megan Kelly. How that's it ankle did in the first hour. Okay. So we have an abrogated church. Who right now, the church is going insane. Over Trump are we've we've got we've got people have previous virtue surrendering their virtue. She'll for Trump. And then we've got people have previous virtue becoming social Justice warriors and abandoned the gospel to oppose Trump, right? So right now, the churches abrogating its responsibility right now, the free press long abrogated its responsibility, and is now hostile to its original founding mission. I mean, many of the institutions that are found in create the church, they they gave it a place of freedom within the community and within the culture to transcend these partisan political divides to do its job. But it doesn't the church didn't want to do its job right now. Media doesn't want to do its job. Academe Lia is hostile to its founding. The founders did create the education system in the free media. All right. But the whether the what did they created the institutions like they did with academe Lia and the media whether they provided a place of transcendent freedom for those pre existent institutions like they did the fam-. Or the church the amount the public institutions that the founders gave us access to. To protect us from something. Like what's happening to our culture right now from happening. Are not available. And so you can have all the people you want that have shared principles if they don't have a vehicle by which to act on them. It's irrelevant exercise their blogging. They're putting a Facebook status up there. They're going out into the wilderness and screaming out into the Easter. And if it's the political version of if a tree falls in the forest. We need one of these damn institutions to do its job one of. One of them. And Mr. sessions, you're Mr. law and order show us. If an obvious fraudster like Michael ebony is so able to co op the system, we know the media so far gone, and it's so bad cable news is so bad the LA times and the Daily Beast had to take time out of schilling for Democrats to say guys, this is even beyond the standards, we should accept here. This guy is a piece of s this is a piece of PU he's the Greek word since we're citing Paul so often this hour, the Greek word Paul uses in Philippians to describe his thoughts on man made religion some interpretations. It's the Greek word for human Greek word for the slaying for human waste K. That's what Michael Eddie is. And now even others on the left. They're saying there's no way we're getting a bit with this guy. We we have to have some standards here. If you allow this knuckle dragging opera craven opportunist, Mr. sessions if you allow him to walk away. From this. And say all I got was this lousy t shirt and one hundred and seventy five million dollars and free media. The incentivisation for worse versions of ebony to come will arise absolute worse. Sweat. Knicks to come will arise. Know someone will someone in this country that that has taken an oath of office. Someone one freaking person with some balls in some power. Simply say, no, no, no, no, no. I'm taking my belt off bring them a foot off. We don't do that here and someone's gonna pay and it's going to be you people like you, Mr. Kennedy who do things like this. You're gonna pay for this. Because here's what will happen. Got in trouble for this one day. I came into work when I was still doing local radio and my general manager calls me to his office. And he's like do would you say yesterday? And it's when George Tiller got killed. He has been George Tiller was. Kermit Gosnell before Kermit Gosnell. It was the Kermit Gosnell of Kansas and. A fake pro-life activist because taking risking innocent life because he went into a church and just started shooting. Other people could have been killed or hurt that you're you're a fake pro-life activist when you risk innocent life to defend innocent life. Okay. So a fake pro-life activists went in there and shot him in cold blood and a church with other people in their kill them. And that was the news of the day. I was a dressing on my show. I made it very clear that's a wicked act that is murder evil wrong. Self defense is one thing. Vigilantism is another okay. But then I also made this point that the sad truth of Mr. tillers murder, and I called it a murder, meaning this was a wrongful king killing of taking human life. The sad truth of Mr. tillers murder. Is that there are babies today that are going to be born in Kansas who I would not have been born if he were still alive, and because the law itself should have shut him down from what he was doing a long time ago and win the law will not enforce itself, and those who are given charge to enforce the law will not do. So eventually John Brown. We just had this conversation yesterday. Eventually John Brown's will emerge take the law into their own hands. Or you create in a Petri dish in a vacuum. You create the environment that causes this. Infants infestation you seated the germinated the ground, you planted the seeds or at the very least watered them. And again, if you continue to allow folks like Evans to engage in obvious fraud to use the machinations of the law itself to further their fraud, and they walk away unscathed. You will not only incentivize worse worse fraudsters than Evans in the future. You will incentivize vigilantes who will eventually say. You know what man if you won't? I'm just take this into my own hands. When I do this myself. Tell me I'm wrong. No, no. Jeff do you're damn job.

MEDIA INDIGENA : Indigenous current affairs

1:16:45 hr | 9 months ago

Talkin Tech, Dabblin in Data (ep 221)

"Hello I'm rick hard. This is media and digital the summer of twenty twenty edition. On this week's collected connected conversations, we get down with data and tight with tech. And we begin in a space many of us know all too well. Social media specifically facebook the walled garden produces more than its share of ambivalence one. We can't live with one we can't seem to live without. A feeling Kim tall bear associate professor of native. Studies at the University of Alberta Echoes here in this January twenty eighteen conversation with myself and fellow round Taylor. Ken Williams System Professor of drama also that the. You, know I've been thrown facebook twice because my name is Talbert and they thought it was spank. So when they were throwing off while the. Drag performers with their quote unquote fake names they were also throwing off native people a couple of years ago I it was a whole bunch of rigmarole I had to go through to get back on facebook but what that issue taught me this one teaches me is that they really need to hire somebody frankly at facebook to do global indigenous relations because they do not know what they're doing. His facebook is huge and indigenous communities right I. Mean it's a it's a double edged sword for us, but it really has enabled. A lot of global indigenous networking and communication, and you know, and in one sense I was happy when I got thrown off because you know it's I spent too much time networking with people on the other hand. You know I don't know what's going on at home because everybody at home on my reservation is on facebook. I hear tribal news, I, share syllabi and information with junior colleagues. You don't like to use e mail. So there's a lot of real work I think that happens there as well. So it's you know we we need it I mean it's really become. So central in an indigenous lives and relating I think. Although, you know my mind it also goes to the place of why can't indigenous people just have their own social networks under their control I mean some people have tried to frame this as a question of sovereignty of course We don't necessarily have the resources to mount a social platform like facebook on the other hand. There's lots of open source options out there. Then dishes people could corral together and utilized for their own benefit can have you ever looked at it in those terms while you look at the other kind of social platforms that do try to compete with facebook and they just cannot it's It's so ridiculous it's become a monster unto itself and No. I'm not saying that that that's not a bad idea to some. You know it's just something that has been tried by other other entrepreneurs and other major platforms like Google like how many people use Google plus like to use Google, plus you got to get people to dump facebook and in that's the first thing and I don't think that's going to. Until something better comes along that the knee meets our needs and different way. But could you make a similar to to land claim? Could you make a a cyberspace based claim? We have claims to land. We have claims to airspace right I mean that's territory of. That does not follow maybe I. Just kind of through this abbey but I wouldn't say, no, I wouldn't say that's not a possibility but then you'd have to say, well, what is facebook would essentially does facebook do is. Service. Even. Though it's a private company are therefore you can say that it must do certain things can what the CRTV says that the cable companies have to do in Canada. I think it's I know it's fought regulation in a Lotta ways, and maybe that is something we have to look at that. When something becomes this massive has to become responsive to consumers in a different way. So I think it's in the realm of possibility I don't know how successful it would be, but I think it's possible agree with Ken to like when I got thrown off. FACEBOOK I. I had all these I was tweeting about it and I had a bunch of heck types on twitter respond back to me about what the other options were but they basically said the same thing. So ellos out there and I got on L. O. but like there's almost nobody on that, your true none of my friends are on its yet the Google plus I never use. It really was very difficult to meet facebook's like a nation, right? That's why some people call it a nation the only way it's going away when there's a revolution and it implodes and something else emerges from the ashes and I don't think we can purposefully designed an alternative but it but it does raise questions. Does it not about if something becomes almost that essential almost kind of like a utility like status, but it's in private hands. You know it because there are people who are saying access to the Internet is a human right or should at least be seen as such. Discussion that will be happening in the future because. Yeah you're right facebook. The Internet is absolutely essential. No, that's what we're seeing why the big fight is happening in the in the United States about net neutrality what it's going to mean to developments of anything because it is because become. An essential communication, service? From one platform to another week. Oh, now take wing to the so-called micro blogging site known as twitter. All sorts of people tweet all sorts of opinions, not least indigenous people. So. Let's go back into cyberspace and what some people are calling native twitter. In fact, there's actually a Hashtag Hashtag that frankly I haven't seen used all that often lately, but it did catch. Your eye can end. You wanted to talk about it. As. Something that was a something more than just a Hashtag. What what? What's giving you that sense what? What else might it be? What is represent for you? Well I. Think this is where when you're talking about. Sovereignty on in Cyberspace I saw a a It was I'm not going to say specifically who this was about because I don't know for sure of the information passing accurate than the person but the person passing it is pretty darn sure it is but it was one of those cases where of pretend Indians people who posed as indigenous people in this case posed as an additional person for the sake of movie and TV roles, and this is something that's been going on for quite some time. is a in Hollywood and Canadian television dwell unfortunately, and than. I saw the Hashtag native twitter and it was like it was a coal. It was like native twitter do this. This is something as a group we have to get ourselves involved in and I found it very interesting because it kind of reminds me a bit of island more for me I don the more was the continuation of a resistance has been continuing for ever and it was just it entered the twitter with a really great hash tag and now I think this is kind of like something more generic, but it's kind of I. Think it's a sense of community building. Is Well as activism. This is this where. Like you were talking about sovereignty in the sovereignty it broadband sovereignty in cyberspace. Is this what this is going to look like that we we take these claims and we identify our people this way and It was just something I found fascinating as an evolving kind of de issue about additions, people being more assertive about who they are and where they are. Now the interesting thing about twitter I suppose this may apply to native twitter as well. Compared to facebook it doesn't I think enjoy as much quantity of participation but of course, it does seem to attract certain types of professions like journalists, for example, Politicos and including politicians obviously people like that who almost make make a living trucking in opinions if you know what I mean oh. Yeah. I mean I. I would say the majority of the threads that I follow in the news that I pick up on twitter it's got to do with indigenous issues and so most of my favorite twitter accounts are indigenous people. There's also a few black studies scholars race scholars and science studies scholars I follow as well and then people involved in those conversations. So actual scientists journalists maybe indigenous up pipes I follow activists artists so. Yeah. I mean every morning when I when I wake up, literally pick up my phone and I checked my twitter stream and some mornings I get stuck laying in bed for an hour reading news and this is how I keep up on what's going on out in indigenous world's have you ever done what I do accidentally dropped the phone on your face lying in bed looking at tweets Yes. Yeah. Yeah Terrible but really it's like it's how I keep up. You know I in I'm really grateful to all the people out there especially women there's been a lot of indigenous women you know with the me too stuff out who really push back against things and I feel like we've got there's kind of this frontline defence of Indian. Country that that is. It seems to me it's disproportionate women to a few man, but it's mostly women that could just be my own bias but. That's my perception too. I will confirm that bias I will confirm it I don't know I I think it seems like women are have more of a stomach forgetting it that kind of fight in arguing these points yeah I think you're right I think it is mostly women at this point but my question is how can we say whether it's influence is actually felt off line as Opposed to simply being a case of tweeting to the choir. So I think you know just like anything else it's going to be who uses it who makes it, and who you find in her we follow, does it lead to great substantial change I think it leads to change different. I think it helps people mobilized and move and find things that they need to know and and Other happening off twitter that it's a great tool for organizers in addition to facebook live and all the other types of things that we use. I, think the other thing about twitter is it's for me. It is real life. It's not like separate from real life. So you've got to manage it in the way you manage your real life and so one of the images that always comes to my mind you know I could be having a really great conversation with some other indigenous thinker on on an issue that we both thought a lot about working out your. With your threat on twitter. Then some Bozo comes in who doesn't know anything about the issues in tweets stupidity at us and usually a white guy you know it's just like real life but you can have great conversations there and you can get a lot of group thank don and I for me. That's what happens on indigenous twitter and that's why it's so important that people are are blocking and getting rid of the people that are adding nothing to the conversation that are not ready for prime time that don't have the background inability to really be in the conversation. The other teams I find on the positive side of that is as well as that you know it's I've I've run into. A, bunch of authors never would have found about any in any other way and and people who are thinking and and really quite critically I find quite fascinating. I never would have found them if it was twitter with, it's Kim came on my radar. Now, would we say native twitter is a specific roster of people or is it? Is it a vibe? Is it? Do you know what or is it both I mean I? I'm just curious about the the contours. Now why you think about that let me answer the question I posed not not too long ago about the real world import mindful of of Kim's belief that that distinction is a false or shaky when. I would say the appropriation prize. Brouhaha. Started on twitter is a bunch of non indigenous intelligentsia laughing about appropriation and suggesting that far from being an actual thing that we should take series we should make fun of it. In fact, give out a prize for the best version of it and people came down fast and hard on and I. Remember like this was I I was up late one Sunday night early morning dropping the phone my face in bed a few times and saw this unfold in real time in front of my eyes. and. It was wild to see, and then then it became a story, right? Know I'm really happy that we had a largely positive conversation around this though said, there's so much. There is a lot of negative negative kind of impression of twitter I. Think I think it doesn't have to be that way as much as it turns out to be. I'm just glad none of us the word Twi. Bible. You just did you know what? Not At this does people use that all the time they to do? That I didn't even know that well, the more you know, Kim For all the good it can do that digitalization of life can. Just make bad things worse that includes punitive welfare schemes that stigmatize and shame poor people for the poverty and as well here on this roundtable from August twenty seventeen. Australia found a way to make such judgment high-tech. Dear again, Kim and Ken. Thirty second topic now, why critics say a new way to distribute welfare in Australia maybe reinforcing some old prejudices known as a cashless welfare card, the federal government wants to expand its use after testing it out at two sites, both of which it turns out our regions with significant indigenous populations, twenty five percent and seventy five percent respectively according to the government's own website. The debit style card is designed to limit people's access to cash withdrawals to just twenty percent of funds provided. Meanwhile, the other eighty percent can only be used at approved retailers and cannot be used to buy alcohol or to gamble. Former Australian prime. minister. Tony Abbott under whose watched the trials were launched recently defended the program saying quote if you're working age person on welfare particularly if you've got kids why shouldn't very significant percentage of your tax payer income be quarantined for the necessities of life End Quote but Pat Dodson the senator from Western stratum who also happens to be indigenous told The Guardian Australia newspaper that the cards are quote simply a public whip to make people comply. Through the Jakonen measure of controlling their income unquote Kim, some clear dividing lines there, and you know as usual it, it can be tricky territory who championed the state subsidizing people's drinking or gambling habits. But on the other hand really isn't poverty stigmatizing enough without the state paternalistically telling you where you can shop and what you can buy. I'm wondering how you come at this. Well, one of the things that struck me about that story was The nature of the local cash economy that clearly the people designing these policies don't understand because that's not how they live. So the. Way in which these communities also are cash economies in. So people actually would have to spend more money going to an approved merchant to use those cards to buy the quote unquote necessities of life versus going to a place that sold them more cheaply but only accepts cash right? Going to garage sales and things like that, and and in purchasing a lot on the second hand market that's how I grew up right garage sales. That's how we got a lot of stuff for for our house. Sometimes, you're going to have those cases I'm sure it's a minority of cases where people are spending a disproportionate amount of income on alcohol and so it it just strikes me that seems like a very blunt tool. That's not exactly right for the problem I. Guess You could. Say to kind of automates the whole process. It takes people out of it kind of offloads out onto the onto the card onto technology. Well, do I mean there's there's a lot of intellectual work though and policy work that goes into making those kinds of changes within those bureaucracies right so it may just this is not an easy change sure and I should say that I think the the handling of this card the administration of this card has been contracted out to a private company so. If I'm not mistaken well, it would it. Comes to mind is when the Hudson's Bay stores with the only place, you could buy anything in a lot of remote communities and when they would control the economic life of indigenous people. In the North this is the twenty first century version of the same thing. If this is only for approved store, you can guarantee those stores are going to ensure that those prices are maximized for themselves for their prophet, and if it's a private company running it, you know they, of course, they're gonNA WANNA see profit on how this works. There's not they're. Not Worried about people's personal welfare they're worried about how can they maintain profit on this on the system now a piece this week ABC News Shared Anecdotal and contradictory reports of on the one hand a decrease in drunk bodies lying on pavements versus an increase in binge drinking fueled by the growing sly grog trade. Now, Grog is their word for for alcohol and sly production and consumption of alcohol can clearly wrestling with this practical issue on the one hand versus important philosophical considerations. Is there a way forward that can help us knit together that? If it doesn't make everyone happy makes the fewest number people unhappy That's a big question I got time. You know I was I mean I. do think that that people do the best they can do in terms of coming from different perspectives about which policy or or rule is going to actually make a difference in the problem I mean I think everybody most everybody in indigenous communities can agree It's not our individual failures or pathological that are. Ultimately the problem I think everybody knows this is our I would hope they know this is a structural problem seems like it's really hard to get policy making bodies to make to attack the structural root of problems versus attacking the really egregious symptoms you know down the line, right? I do think people make the best policy they make with a set of The information that they have but then you kind of have to see how that's going to change what's happening on the ground right and then these other kinds of circumstances come up that you didn't plan for the the thing I want to add to the cashless welfare Cardiff cash what's needed for an addict to get their substance? then. They will find ways to get that cash yet or they'll find an alternative substance. It's not looking at the roots what causes the addiction EST it's they look at controlling the substance and not understanding why the addiction exist in the first place because an addict will find something else if it doesn't work as a way to help people, what does it work as? It could be mostly government politics two it's base of voters, and that's perhaps the most cynical aspect of all. Now, I came across an article from the Guardian from May of this year, the headline cashless welfare card trial costs up to eighteen point, nine, million dollars, and that's for fewer than two thousand people who are forced to use it. Oh my God are you go? It's caused the department two point six, million dollars in administration costs and the private firm providing the cards Indu- or Ju I. N. D U E. Is One. Hundred seven point nine million dollar contract holy smokes. This is out of control while. while. I did promise to get you some numbers in terms of what exactly is the welfare rate there in. Australia according to the Australian Department of Human Services Website. when it comes to unemployment benefits, most single people can get around five hundred and thirty five dollars and sixty cents every two weeks, two hundred and sixty dollars a week the equivalent of just under fourteen thousand Stralia a year put that in perspective though the median weekly rental for a one bedroom flat in Melbourne or Melvin. As they said, they're three hundred and forty dollars a week and in the northern territory. Median weekly rent three, hundred, fifteen dollars. So this doesn't even match your weekly Rent as you folks may know there seems to be a lot of back and forth in terms of inspiration if you will for policy ideologically inspired policy between Australia and Canada And I don't think it's a remote chance of the Conservatives could return to power. I would not put them to try and implement such a card one day at least for on reserve income assistance. Of all the APPS I use I'd say Google maps is up there as far as utility goes not least when I'm in unfamiliar territory. So for Google to add indigenous places into the mix of their maps with him, a slam dunk. But as we discover in this June, twenty, seventeen discussion such cutting edge cartography may hide as much as it helps something I explore with Karen as then executive director. ABC News and current affairs plus Lisa Girban Shimshon, broadcaster and podcast. Turning to our second story, some seemingly good news from Google because they've announced that more than three thousand indigenous communities in Canada have been added to Google maps and Google. Earth this from a CBC report which notes that the updated sites include first nations, reserve lands, but also treaty settlement lands belonging to indigenous communities they site, for example, and urban reserve in Winnipeg where often go to gas. Up My car but I know there's some places like they've had the google trucks up in some places in nunavut where they've started to take pictures and satellite map it are they just like plain map or they going to satellite map thumb but you can really see the diversity in reserves of they do that because you'll see the reserves that are doing really well, and you'll see the Reserves that are still really suffering under the third world conditions. Yeah. Well, that's what I thought too. Maybe for the first time, people can actually see what reserves look like. That could be real eye opening experience I think for a lot of people. But then that kind of asks the question what is the threshold like where where does it become an invasion of privacy for communities like would? People like essentially outsiders than see aspects of reserves that you are that you wouldn't find in a a quick Google search like do reserve communities want the public to see abandoned buildings on reserves should people be able to see the yards that are overrun with bushes? Do Communities want to share those images of rundown facilities or maybe even the absence of facilities on some reserves so I guess this Would be decided by individual reserve communities in thinking about Google maps and like in your phone basically that you can access. I thought it was interesting because like well, Google maps does outline the streets of luck lambs. Luck Williams, itself doesn't have cell service there's no three G no L. T. you have to really rely on Wi fi but even then it's really difficult to find reliable hot spots in the village, and so I think that's a hindrance to creating online mapping. That's reflective of indigenous communities because you can make the maps. But then how useful is it to the community that you're going to be representing in an online mapping system? So you know even if you have the ability to provide the services online I, guess the question is, can you use those services? Practically is the flip side to that while that segues nicely into a discussion I wanted to have in of who are these maps four, who and what are these maps for? This reminds me of how maps really are stories right and behind every story is a storyteller who works to impose a a narrative on reality and how that can play out here I think. Is is the choice that's confronting whoever maps out these indigenous communities. So for example. Have they just decided to go with the boundaries of just reserves or was there thought of including the boundaries of the traditional territories of I. Man. You'RE GONNA get into you're going there. Right well, we hear a lot about cultural appropriation presumably map. Sir There are a form of cartographic appropriation. Right? Have I coined a new fraser. I think. So right I mean why he? It's such. It's such a problem I. Mean we get asked the Salat in. Why we use the Canadian map with the provinces in the cities, instead of using like territorial map of the origins of our of our land and what the land used to look like an just refer back to my own nation of the land that we were on changed over time. And I think there's a lot of disputes between us and the haudenosaunee still over where that border is. So. Depending you're talking about politicizing things that's pretty political where we draw that line and. Whose territory. There's always been problems withdrawing that surround traditional ends even before they were electron Iq I. Think I totally agree with that. I. Think also if you look at it from particular indigenous nations, views of their own territories, like you can see within the Simpson territory that there are different tribes that have specific territory within that territory and that's contested all the time and that plays out in. Everyday interactions like whose territory you're on even though you're in the Shan territory, you could be on another host groups territory, which further defines where like whose territory you're on, and so how do you map that and you're you're asking Wrigley maps for and that's a really interesting question because the probably not for the people who live there because it's not like I mean everybody knows where everybody's houses and they know where the band offices already and they know where the school is like like people know their way around their own communities so. It's interesting. I might be really interesting opportunity for first nations to sit there and to some of the points that Lisa raised to sit there and say, yeah, we're mapping out our community. We're taking control of that and we're deciding what the outside world like what we're going to show them. About what we want them to know or in our community like it almost becomes a way for them to develop their own story and communicated using new technology. I see possibilities in it more than dangers. Well, it's not a possibility actuality people are doing it. They've given it a name, it's called the counter mapping movement. It's definitely been taken up by indigenous peoples. Still if a map is not drawn by us, it will be drawn for us and maps tool to power I. mean they're meant to inscribe power on the landscape. When it comes to indigenous rights most their sights set on the lands and waters they h
