Fighting Sin by Obeying God With One Another
"Deuteronomy chapter nineteen verses. Fifteen a single witness shall not suffice against a person for any crime or for any wrong in connection with any offence that he is committed only on the evidence of two witnesses or of three witnesses shall charge be established so this picture and deuteronomy is describing how god is calling his people to carry out justice and specifically here to ensure that sufficient witnesses are brought forward to establish a charge. Now we can talk more about this context in deuteronomy chapter nineteen. But the reason. I wanna read verse. Fifteen here specifically and lead us to pray. According to it is because of the foundation this lays for something. Jesus later teaches in matthew chapter eighteen versus fifteen to twenty there when he talks about church discipline and accountability and he talks about how when a brother sends against you or we could use the same picture from glacial chapter six. When brothers caught in sin her sisters caught in center sisters sins against you. Then jia says go to that person just between you and that person and talk about this and seek reconciliation ultimately seek reconciliation between them. And god you want to call them away from sin and certainly secret any reconciliation. That's needed with them. Between you and that person but if that person she says refuses to listen to you what does he say he says matthew chapter eighteen verse sixteen but if he does not listen take one or two others along with you that every charge may be established by the evidence of two or three witnesses. And as soon as i say that you realize what jesus is saying they're in matthew. Chapter eighteen or sixteen is based completely on what we just read. And god's law in deuteronomy chapter nineteen verse fifteen

The governor's to those guidelines that that has become very clear so right now for the American worker whose nervous about going back if they WANNA get tested to see if they've been exposed to the virus they can have access to both problem and hate you. You ask them about testing. You asked him about his own actions earlier in the year you asked him about the unemployment the real first of all those were just kind of what we are choices based on then. What are your choices based on now? Do you feel like you got an answer. Well I thought I got Some candor from the president. There's you know I've I've interviewed him several times now and I thought on the unemployment rate which you bring up. That's a prime example. Here have been forecasts. Fifteen sixteen seventeen percent one of your advisers projected unemployment rate of nineteen percent. That's nearly one in five Americans without a job. How bad is this going to get well? That is what it is a very interesting. Even the Democrats aren't blaming me for that. He is not one to go along with a measurement or a metric that that is that dire for the president to acknowledge that he said that that is the situation now. He quickly turned the conversation to what will the next quarter what we'll see next year and that clearly is part of his reelection argument. I think a lot of people share that hope Mr President but the reality for so many families that we've reported on is they can't afford to wait for the next quarter. They're just trying to get through next week or the next dinner they put on the table. Well we've done a lot for that We've done our small businesses you know or P P P A paycheck if you WANNA call it that whether or not people were feeling that pain can even wait until the next quarter You know that's what I pointed out if if they still have everything that they've got right now and I think exactly this question you ask them about the empathy and what he's feeling about. That pain was kind of revealing itself because empathy is actually been a big part of its discussion with the president and his team. I thought hearing the president use words like I love you. That's a tone that you don't typically hear from President Trump. We've lost more people now than we lost the Vietnam War. What do you WanNa stay to those families tonight? I WanNa say I love you. Want to say that we're doing everything we can. The death toll now is more than seventy thousand in this country and it's staggering. I always say you know. Every night I try to find another way to word it on the news because I don't want to become numbers I mean and to hear him say that and to the people that have lost someone. There is nobody. I don't sleep at nights thinking about it. There's nobody that's taken it harder than me but at the same time I have to get this enemy defeated and that's what we're doing. David. That's what we're doing. I don't know whether that's you know strategies. We headed to a reelection campaign. It felt very candid to me.

"Some gay kids in school kids because they did look at that like he's done that right now. You said you were closeted that point. What how old are you when you were like? Yeah I'm gay like before the Ra Sector Ding Dong. I'm trying to think like a lot of a lot of people have like mapped out. Like this was the day that I came out and you were like third grade. Nearly Oh man. I'm now do fifth grade now now because I didn't know it was like I remember like towards the of college. I had the realization. I was like I would watch porn. It'll be straight porn and you just watched it and I'm just watching the guy like all right and then I was like whoa active the watching gay porn so I was like okay. This is probably an indicator that I'm gay and then as you're psych towards the end of senior year I was like all right. I'm gay nine just hit it for another two years to three years and eventually it's so interesting when you say it like that because usually like you said people are like oh. I knew since I was like third grade or whatever but I'm now I'm trying to put myself in the mind of someone trying to even figure that out. How will you thirty so thirty years old? Same Age right so back in the day where it wasn't super acceptable. Everyone's like well. I'm not I'm not gay. I'm just like young. I don't really know figuring it out like because like you said fifth grade like you don't know if you're fucking blacked it out because it was too painful but I don't remember people ask by coming out all the time and I like vaguely remember but it was so horrific to do but I just don't even have told my Mama on the way to cvs so it was in a car and a car multiple cars. All I did was cars. I did want cars would be your net for coming out and car laws it. It'd be able to come out on my chest. I had my golfing anything. He wanted to all straight. I had my brother then my mom and my sister than my dad and then I was just worried about my buddies family. All right they'll be fucking fine but I was worried about my buddies because they're all just dirt Massachusetts dirtbags telling Kids Irish. It's like an. It's like well. Maybe it's not like where you guys are similar to Long Island Long Times. But they were fucking jetskis around jets budget gay bashers resenting abuse like fucking now not all you know what I had one friend my buddy you know my buddy dave the COP. This is like the most emotionally intelligent. He's a fucking dirtbag biggest SCUMBAG BAG. I know but who you attacking gay he would he is a he is so funny like he was in the Marine Corps out. He was just like this next level of social intelligence in humor and I remember like towards the end as I was getting ready to come out Daikyo Gay and I was like like my life just like flat from like no no no no no and then I came out do everyone else in my life. Not a single person new wild only one person and what's a statistical breakdown of how many people per I don't know five guys are Gay Right? Well it's one and four right now. I think I often try to think of I feel like someone in my friend. Group has got it going to be gay. Gay HAS TO BE RIGHT. That's the thing that's the thing that I'm interested in like. Most people have had some sort of fun experience. Or maybe that's just a gay fantasy now. I've had Gay Dreams. I've talked about on the show again. See I definitely think it's Aghanistan you've had again as you know I'm saying I think you're having Aghanistan straight dutiful like try it. One hundred percent probably like had hooked up with straight DUDES RIGHT. Yeah like when we were like but then you wonder if you're doing that when you're twenty four twenty five how many of these guys are straight fucking. Just don't know they're gay not gay. It's like all right dude. Whatever my Dixon your mouth I do another podcast show because all the peoples lives did this one episode where because we like anonymously call people and they like tell their story. Whatever there's this one guy that strictly for I mean for as much as he can will exclusively hook up with straight dudes who are like straight in monogamous relationships with Ryan and Hook up with them and I'm like is that something that gay dudes like go out of their way to be like you know what I'm GonNa go after a straight guy I think I don't like the trophy hunting analogy of just think that feels so predatory in weird but it's definitely a culture and like a thing but like I hooked up with guys who've had girlfriends who tell me they're straight and I'm like you're not straight we just had sex. Yeah you're not. I don't believe that straight guys hook up with other guys. You have to be a little bit gay to do that. We've talked about this last week. You have to be a little bit. You can't compartmentalize where I said the hypothetical. If I said to Joe I said well if I come to you and I was like yeah last night I got like messed up. I got a little tipsy. I let this suck my Dick I go. Are you going to think I'm gay? And he was like now think you were by. But that's the gay by definitely a little bit goodbye. Sure I'd I'd be like all right. Well he's not like fully like armed exclusively GonNa Hook up with women. I'm I'm open to the idea because like the act of talking to a dude like all night and feeling some sort of motion towards him enough to where you're going to leave in the same car go back to your apartment or whatever so it's like all of that is like whatever if you if you have like a gay experience and then you're like Not really into it or whatever the case may be or maybe you only have to your entire life. You're still let you know. Obviously they have like sexual spectrum. Like you're still like leaning towards straight more. I think it's just people are more open to it and it goes back to what we said before because it's less like stigmatized people. Do I go people who are on the fence tares ago? Who might not a few drinks and ban like talking to a gay guy now but like a lot of times on the show? We'll talk about the gay marriage as America game for for what I think is funny to see like dude who it's kind of ironic. How Super Masculine and like yeah like and they're afraid to even be like like Chris. Hemsworth is fucking hot and they'd be like fucking right. You're like but I think there's way there's way less of that than there used to be. There is but it's crazy that it's still exists because their times on the show. We'll we'll do that on the show like you are. You feel like you're holding back. I'll tell you feel like you're holding back to try and be to try and be respectful and I want you to let all the questions out now. It's like you know your cub. Find your hooded cut.

"All Roads Lead to Andrew Rappaport. Y'All all roads lead to Christian podcast. Well that's not. All the roads read to Romans road they host Rove road. And that's it well Andrew. There is an issue that comes up once in a while. While we're open air preaching and this is this is kind of one of those things that atheists sceptics a Lotta Times. This is like their atom bomb. This is the thing they throw out there and in their mind they think shows over. I just won this battle and this this Christian is going to have absolutely nothing to say and it is a it is a you know at face value. It's a pretty complicated thing. It's the issue of slavery and so even Christians Reading the Bible. We'll we'll see this these different things about slaves and we'll be like man. What is that doing in there? You Know God allowed slavery and different things like that. So so for Christians. It definitely takes some studying and reading the contacts and just figuring out. What exactly is this being what? What's being spoken of your but in an evangelism situation in an apologetic situation. It's one of those things that skeptics will. Just throw at us you know. Why are their slaves in the Bible? You wear your slaves deal any slaves. You're a Christian. The you like the Bible the Bible says you can own slaves so under. How do you deal with that? You know how. How are we to think of the issue of slavery in the Bible it actually is a fallacy the fallacy of equivocation. What they're equivocating on the word slavery. Okay so they're taking the word slavery and they're thinking they're implying. The African slave trade where people were kidnapped brought to other countries and forced labor. The they had no rights. They were property of another human being right. They couldn't make money. There is no chance of freedom and they were. They were at the whim of their master. So I've seen I saw the series roots when I was a little kid. And then what's the other one? There's all these different movies that just show African slave savory and it's horrible you know it could be they. They will often show the worst part of it you know. There's a book recently. Came out twelve years of slave and in that Solomon. He was a he was free. He was not a slave. He got kidnapped in Washington while performing. Who was a violinist? And he is performing in got kidnapped there and he worked for a guy for many years being an educated man he could read and write and he actually says in his own book had he stayed there he would not have thought slavery was so bad he worked for a Christian man who that would you end up seeing happen when he said he wouldn't have had a problem with it because he lived a good life and then he got sold to someone that just was the epitome of the worst of all evils and that's where he had problems and saw the worst side of it and so the equivocation you see people do is they're gonNa take with the Bible talks of slavery and say that's the same as what we're talking about with the African slave trade and they're not the same and this is the the equivocation they make their argument. Is that because we know slavery is wrong and the Bible endorses slavery. The Bible's wrong. Right problem is the Bible doesn't endorse the slavery of the African slave trade. One in the Bible is really clear that kidnapping a person is wrong. Yeah another thing you see in the Bible is that the slavery of maybe not the outside countries but the slavery discussed that God speaks of. He wasn't one of property ownership. It was one where if you have a cow that runs away and your neighbor finds it the neighbors to return your cow if your slave runs away. The Bible's clear that the slave does not get returned. Why because he's not property The other thing that people don't understand when they think of this slavery is slavery's case where you don't get you don't make money you work for someone and they make all the money. That's not the Old Testament Slavery Old Testament Slavery. You've got a half day's wage so you were paid. What was the slavery was an employment system? It was a way where people who couldn't take care of themselves. They couldn't manage their money. They would get themselves into debt and they would either sell themselves as a slave or they'd be indebted to someone and they work for that person as a slave to work off their debt. They would get a half day's wage and the other half day's wage went to paying off their debt and so they could still have family outside of of being a slave and pay them but the master had the responsibility of caring for them he had to pay for the food housing. And all this and so some people preferred being the slave because someone else took care of all the needs. They would get a small amount of money but they got paid the closest thing in our day and age. We can really examine. This would be Japan in the eighties because in the Eighties Japan. The companies owned everything. You work for a company. They own everything they take your education your housing your car your TV your genes. It's owned by the company. They own everything idea being if they own everything the better they do the better you do. So you'd want to work more to to make the company profitable but you didn't go switching companies and worked for a company for Generations. Your Kid's worked for companies you work for same with your grandkids because you didn't just go switching companies. It was almost like the slavery of the Bible. They had the responsible care for all of your needs and you got paid. But you didn't get paid as much as you could if you were out on your own. And that was the employment system. So that's more what we'd see when we see the the slavery in the Bible. It's interesting because you talk about people selling them basically selling themselves into slavery in order to pay off debt and this was during a time when we didn't have credit cards when we didn't have mortgages when basically if a person couldn't feed themselves they're going to die somewhere in the desert so for them to put themselves in the home in the household of someone who could afford to feed them and clothe them take care of them in an agrarian society where it's either life or death but based on whether you have enough to to survive or not you know it's it's You know not saying it would be a good thing to be a slave but it but it's a whole lot better than starving to death when you so much people. So many people don't understand because they don't take time to properly interpret descriptors. They don't try to understand the culture of the time they wanna read into the culture are Danny. Yeah and it doesn't fit. The they have such issues with are telling me if someone if someone race a woman the woman has to marry the rapist. What was her choice in that culture starving to death right it was. It wasn't that she had to marry him. He had a responsibility because he ruined her shoes. Knowing Virgin he ruined her. He now had a responsibility to care for her as a wife he had to love her and take care of her and take care of all her needs and show her the love. That's due to a wife. And that was now his responsibility he had to pay the the back. Then you get married you pay a dowry. He'd have to do all that well not too long ago. In America we have this saying the shotgun wedding. Where if a guy you know violates a woman or basically takes her virginity away before they get married here comes down with the shotgun and he's going to. He's going to make him be responsible for what he's done. And so yeah so. What I'm hearing is like every other thing in scripture. We'd just need to look at things in context context so the chapter itself book of the Bible and also the culture of just. What's going on at the time? Okay so you've given us the background. What is just kind of a quick way that you would deal with the heckler? You're open air preaching and along comes miss skeptic. And he's he's proud and he just yells out. Well you're Christian you you you think slavery's okay what's what's like a quick thing you say because obviously you're not Gonna. You'RE NOT GONNA they're not gonNA give you ten minutes explain all that you don't have the time on a box to to answer or things in detail like is needed. There's two things I focus on One is I'll ask the person when you speak of flavor. You mean we're one person owns another person and the person has no rights of their own. Yes you mean when you speak of slavery that someone who they don't get paid they work for someone else and they don't get paid. Yes and then I go okay. That's not to slavery the Bible because the slavery of the Bible. They got half days pay so they did get paid and they were. They were not considered property. So it's not the same slavery as you're speaking of by the way the slavery and the Bible you can only be a slave for seven years before you were set free in Judaism So it it's okay same slavery. Yeah you know now what I sometimes on the streets. He's when they bring up the slavery also. I'll get them to say so. You're saying it's wrong to say this is my property. And they'll say yes and they said well. Can I ask you a question? Do you support abortion? I did this a debate. Mets like was doing it to be with David Smalley and I. I ended up turning to him. The whole debate is over moral issues right and slavery was coming up and so David Smalley I get up. To ask. Accumulates Open Cuna? Get Up David Small and I just said Mr Smalley. Do you support abortion? And he knew exactly where I was going with news. Oh boy he goes. I'm glad I'm glad I'm debating him and not you because what ends up happening with that is what is abortion argument is. This is my body. But what's the difference between saying? This is my property. Mrs My body Nothing the will the real difference is this is. My property doesn't end in death. This is my body does. That's a great point. You know just like with so many other issues when you're opener preaching the opposition is throwing something at you that it just comes into. They just don't know what they're talking about. They don't know the context and quite frankly they usually don't care they just have this thing that they're throwing at you in order to shut you up in the hopes that that's what it's going to do now slavery one of the things that sadly is very interesting about that. A lot of people. Just look at it as an issue of the past but the reality is there's still slavery going on today. What do you have to say about the modern day? Slavery is also called Human Trafficking and the majority of human trafficking other human trafficking. That is where people are kidnapped and forced into Labor. The way we think of slavery unfortunately today the majority of human trafficking is sex slaves It is The Sex Industry. It is a hundred and fifty billion dollar industry with a B. This is the second largest industry in the world. This is these are women who are being forced into you know the pornography that all these people are watching. They're thinking that these girls want to do this. Most these girls are duped into doing this. Most girls are kidnapped and they have no way out of this when the sad thing is there's no way to get actual statistics because so much this is underground sure but the statistics say that there are there could be up to or well over a hundred million people that are caught and human traffic today and this globally. The one of the three largest countries is the United States. Philippines and Mexico are the largest areas for human trafficking people witnessed the majority of it or women and children the average age of women being were children really being brought into human sex. Slaves is between twelve and fourteen years old. They're runaway girls girls that that it's so sad because what it is a lot of it is people who are trying to escape their home would they think is a bad situation and they trust some person they they think they meet on the Internet and get into a far worse situation? It is point zero four percent of women that escape.

"Masterson. Today will look into a number stories and issues in the news. We begin with the widespread demonstrations across Venezuela by supporters of the opposition to the Madero government on the day of the anniversary of the nineteen fifty eight uprising which overthrew a military dictatorship. David small d a senior fellow at the Washington office of Latin America who has research Venezuela for the past twenty five years and lived there for fifteen years after discuss this article at the conversation Venezuelans reject Madera presidency, but most would oppose far military operation to asked him. We'll assess the impact of the president of the national assembly one way to declaring himself interim president of Venezuela and President Trump's move to recognize him as a country interim president which follows a number of South American countries that have already recognized way to as. Venezuela's legitimate head of state and since Trump administration officials met with rebellious Venezuelan military officers back in September. But decided not to support their coup plot. We'll explore what options there are for the vast majority of beleaguered and Venezuelans to remove from power the unpopular and incompetent Madero who has brought an oil rich country to the brink of starvation and collapse, then we'll examine Trump's led to house majority leader Pelosi vowing to deliver his state of the union speech from the house chamber spite of Pelosi's earlier request that he not show up on January twenty nine to deliver his speech. Elsewhere or in writing as long as the government remains shut down. John Lawrence, a visiting professor at the university of California Washington DC who worked in the house of representatives thirty eight years and served this house minority leader Nancy Pelosi chief-of-staff joins us to explain Trump. Cannot gatecrash the house to deliver his state of the. The union speech, but has to be invited by the speaker Madam Pelosi, then finally we'll go to Mexico City to speak with Dr John mill Ackerman, a professor at the institute of legal research at and the editor of the Mexico law review as well as a columnist for LA Hoya, NADA and the weekly magazine Proceso he joins us to discuss why the Mexican press downplaying is downplaying revelations that former president Theodore took a one hundred million dollar bribe from the drug Lord, El Chapo and Mexico's new president. I'm lows efforts to get Trump to deal with violence and corruption in Central America, which are at the root of why migrants seek refuge in the United States. And joining us now at David small d a senior fellow at the Washington office of Latin America, specializing in Venezuela. And a professor says geology at Tulane university. Professors mildly has research Venezuela for the past twenty five years and lived there for. Title of fifteen years during which time he taught at the university that central develops Waylon and the university doubt Catolica Andres Bello, he moderates, the blog Venezuelan, politics and human rights and has an article at the conversation Venezuelans reject Madera presidency, but most would oppose foreign military operation to oust him. Welcome to background briefing. David smutty. Thank you, David. Vice president Pence sent a video message. He spent he spoke with one way to the young president of the national assembly who's a number of South American countries have recognized this as Venezuela's legitimate leader. And then today, President Trump also recognized the leader of the opposition one way to as the interim president. So is this gonna have any effect on Madero? It does feel like the the outside world is closing in on him. Not to mention the fact that the vast majority of the Venezuelan people are just. Totally fed up with this incompetent unpopular alita. Yeah. The it's it's a really situation. That's developing right now, it's rather confusing is not clear what exactly is going to happen today. Newer massive protest today is the twenty third of January and Kennedy is important that national holiday in Venezuela precisely because in nineteen fifty eight is the Dan they overthrew a military dictatorship. So massive marches today and during the March on white all of the president national assembly declared himself interim president of Venezuela. And this was a step that has been in the works and has been. I am in playing for the past ten days. And he finally took this step immediately afterward to the United States candidat Columbia at a number of other countries in the region recognized him as president. And so now, it's a very unclear situations. The two presidents manure oh hell out prince earlier today. Very defiant attitude, and is basically all of his speeches about United States imperialism. I think US actions have facilitated that beam as focused, but it's it's very unclear what what is notable right now is that by giving a speech and the minister of defence is not there by his side. Like, the other ministers are suggestions that he is currently talking with the military high command, and it's not clear exactly what what's gonna come back. But that's all Madeira does though isn't it blame the US gives these ideological speeches while the country goes to hell in a hand basket. Well, he frequently that's one of his top themes. But sometimes he actually does have to deal with issues like the economy and inflation and food scarcities and migration and all those issues is much more difficult to deal with the opposition protesting. The fact that there's this movement is very event, that's that's gaining momentum in. So you know, whatever he can do. His his basic move instant try and make this problem. A problem of Venezuela versus the United States government versus of as well and people, and so sometimes it's more plausible, and sometimes it's less plausible moments like this becomes more possible. But you know, in the end, he he had a really big problem, and he's very unpopular president. And he is not seen by most as Whelan's nor most of neighboring countries around him. And so so it's it's a difficult situation. We'll back in August of twenty seventeen after the US slapped economic sanctions on Maduro. President Trump said the United States was considering a military option in Venezuela and that just clearly played right into Medeiros hands. Now, we also learning I think it would just back in September that a group of military officers met with Trump administration officials they were plotting a coup. Coup against Madero. But apparently, the Trump administration declined to support their plans. What do you know about that secret meeting between and who were these military officials from Venezuela? Do we know who they met within the Trump administration? I think the I think we do know who they met with. And we do know who the people were that were arrested later for being part of this new seem that these were the same people that met with administration officials the you know, that was a military conspiracy. That was cooking for about six months. I was pretty much disbanded last may I think, you know, the larger point here is that the administration and in general hawks in in the US government think that threatening military action or seniors military option is a good pressure technique. They think that that's going to make a government seed or change behavior or do something different. And actually, I it's not an effective pressure technique. What's happened since in a year and a half since Trump I send that is. Of course, it reinforces my message. But it also probably more partly is it undermines the opposition. Because the opposition it drives away to the opposition between those who might to act politically had mobilized, and those who think what we should just abstain stay home and let a foreign intervention happened because that's going to be more effective. And so a lot of the deterioration of that position in the past year and a half, I think can be attributed to that that military option. Now, the the United States had have had a did it. National street house phone call journalists today in which they emphasized time. And again that if anything happens to quite oh and this. And the other leaders in the national assembly would be held responsible. And that all options are on the team will sooner very, and they said that time, and again is very clear that they want people to know that have no one's hurry up because they think that's going to be effective. Effective threat. And I don't think that's an effective. It's actually counterproductive. I mean, the real problem here is that. You can certainly understand the United States and other countries have not recognize my election last may, and I think it was clearly deficient election, not meet standards. I don't think it should have should be recognized. And so what happens when my law? His horn in while they're not gonna recognize him. And now they're gonna recognize why why no as as interim president what this is going to lead to is not clear and the United States. This doesn't actually open up new crowd or open up. Any new interesting strategy for the United States is still has the same sort of sweet of unattractive options. Basically, there's no Terry option. And there's further sanctions. No, nothing is any any more broad any broader economic. Sanctions are going to end up hurting the people and just exacerbating the migration crisis this hour, you affecting the region, and those her option, of course, is is is undesirable as we know from from past US intervention in in recent decades. And so promising. There are no really good options at this point. And again, I'm speaking with David smile to his a senior fellow at the Washington office of Latin America's specializing in Venezuela and a professor of sociology at Tulane university. Professor smile research Venezuela for the past twenty five years and lived there for total of fifteen years during which time he taught at the university down central Venezuela. And the university Catholic address Bello he moderates, the blog Venezuelan, politics and human rights, and he has an article at the conversation Venezuelans reject Madura presidency, but most would oppose far military operation to oust him. So there hasn't been a free election in Venezuela. Since December twenty fifteen when the opposition overwhelmingly in a landslide as secure the majority. But then since then Maderas ruling United socialist party have come up with all kinds of tricks to essentially strip the assembly of any powers and Madeira controls the courts the. The one area that seems to be a little shaky in which sort of focusing on an today, David, I guess is the military because Madero, and apparently my understanding is that the Cubans are basically being in their kind of running the show behind the scenes, particularly in terms of the military and the intelligence services, but there are obviously cracks the fact that the minister of defense wasn't there today in Medeiros press conference how much can you make them? Well, I think this is this is the real issue. I mean, I think. For there to be any kind of transition. It's going to the military is going to end up siding. No. And so far. They've been quite loyal to him. Then he goes Milo, and it's not hard to understand. Why basically since he became president to thirteen. He's given them control or all kinds of economic assets television stations. They have a Bank they control imports and exports of food Inc. They now control the oil company mining. No, they have all kinds of economic interests and in show at allow them to lose that. But. At this point. No, he's officials can be quite pragmatic. They sort of think that the game is up. I have no doubt at at at a certain point. They're going to end up turning on a minute. Oh, I don't think that they're heavily ideological and the way that and and the people in his inner circle art. And so, you know, that's that's what it would take. It would take the military to say, you know, we're not going to go along with this anymore. We have to go into elections. And we'll we'll see what we should we should know in the coming day or two what an stances, but she only the military, particularly the rank and file have got relatives.

Warren's third touchdown run of the game and made a twenty eight sixteen USF answered or the twenty five yard touchdown pass from Ola Doke into mechanics to get back to within five. But then Michael Warren did it again. Another one yard touchdown run. Third. Touchdown run of the game. He scored a total of four touchdowns he established a new career rushing high as he finished with one hundred fifty one rushing yards in the game. And he as you might expect is our Kroger star of the game. It's brought to you by Kroger. Get savings on the items you buy most often with low prices at your neighborhood Kroger.

Very similar on the road. Like they were here last week puts points on him move the ball. So the Bearcats are going to be able to do that as well defense is playing extremely well. They help. USF today for one hundred eighty yards under their average eighty one yards on the ground that gave up day to a to an offense that was average at two hundred nineteen yards a game on the ground. So it's it's non-clean or is. Mistake ridden is the game was maybe for Cincinnati based on the way they played last week at navy. They still did a nice job of shutdown this offense, and they end a three year head to head losing streak against the US F balls back to you. All right, Dan.

Temple has the football facing a fourth and long, and it looks like they're lining up for a field goal, which would push the lead to ten with a one minute and forty five seconds remaining in Houston.

It's a memoir what it's like to rub the son of a weird kind of celebrity, a famous game show quiz kid. So his father was on this huge game show in the forties and fifties became an international celebrity and the. Turned his back on all of that and never talks about it. So the book is about his son's search for answers. Why did that happen and it? But it's really about how completely unknowable to us. Our parents lives actually are how the answers they supply us aren't nearly the whole answers and how that causes ripple effects that we have to just swim with. So that's the book I liked that I read earlier this year home after dark is a graphic novel, not a graphic memoir by David small and it came out September. Eleventh small is a big deal. He's written and drawn lots of picture books for kids, Caldecott winner. In two thousand nine. He wrote a graphic memoir about his own childhood, and that was called stitches, which I reviewed for NPR. There's a theme here. It's your through line, very, there's my very through its exact now. It's stitches is very dark. It's very harrowing. It is also gorgeous. It was nominated for a national book award which was kind of a big deal. His latest home after dark comes out September eleventh. As I say, it's a novel, but it's. Feels very autograph. It's about a kid growing up in the fifties and sixties who gets abandoned by his parents wanted to time and and tries to get by. Now, that's a story you read before. There are no shortage of white dudes who have kind of swim those waters. You got your Tobias, Wolff, your friend, Connor you, John Updike that doesn't invalidate it, but there's a very likely gay friend of his who story resolves in a way that feels accurate for the time, but completely familiar. And when you're reading it, if I told you this was written by seventy three straight white dude, you would not be shocked, put it that way, but the execution as as what matters and this art is beautiful. If you imagine gills Pfeiffer cared more about being like a technical draughtsman and kind of reigned himself. In more. These settings are just so alive. These characters are really expressive. And the thing about this main character as in many straight white male books, there's an interior already to this guy, but all of that is just splayed out on the page for you to see it is very emotional story in ways that are surpr-. Sizing and when you've read stories like this before and they can still find a way to surprise you, I think attention must be paid. So that is home after dark by David small. So Petra mayor hit me one time. Ooh. Okay. Well, so unlike Christina, I love historical romances because I am about the gowns. I'm about the gardens, but there are some contemporary series that I really really enjoy. And one of them is Lucy Parker's London celebrities series. Yes, yes. Good. It's called making up, I think, and it's these books are set in in London's West End and they deal with this rotating cast of theater people. So you get kind of, I don't know what Lucy puckers background is, but she seems to have a fairly comprehensive view of what it's like to be a theater person in the sort of unglamorous size of venue. And also if you're a tragic anglophile like I am, they're just fun because you really feel like you're there and so making up is about an acrobat who falls in love with a hot makeup artist. He's very well done, beta hero to. I like a good beta here on tired of like foot tall, slab of muscle with the chiseled Brown. Speakers, talking about romance.

He's super good at his craft, and you get to see that, which is really like, I, you know, competency porn is always hot Schrager. Sure. So so yes, that whole series just makes being credibly happy.
