What Is Roger Stone Doing in New York?
"Back. I'm talking to Roger Stone, roger. I live in New York City, I do not mug people, but I do live in New York City. I think it's overstated about the crime. That's here. We don't need to get into that. All I'm trying to say is, I live here, you rarely visit here. You visited here. I was out of town. I was very upset by that. I wish I got more notice when you're going to be around. But tell us what were you doing in New York and did you say antifa was trying to attack you? So I was invited by the New York young Republican club, which is the oldest, largest and most vibrant and active young Republican club in the country. Former members, governor Thomas E Dewey, attorney general, Herbert brownell, governor Nelson Rockefeller, former vice president, Richard Nixon when he lived all associate members. Verily a John foster dulles an associate member. Very Augusta and storied history. It is a really a vibrant club of young people and they invited me to come in for a martini mixer. This is where I spoke about the history of the martini. I reveal Richard Nixon's own secret recipe for the silver bullet. And then I move behind the bar and with the assistance of three bartenders, I mixed and poured over almost 300 martinis. By the way, The Daily Beast said they were margaritas, just to show you how to actually yeah, they're not big on mixology or theology, but that's the only two things of which they're totally ignorant. But at least call themselves The Daily Beast, so it's right out there in front, you know exactly what they are. I think they're corporate slogan is 6, 6, 6, as a matter of fact. But in any event, so with the way this worked is you bought your ticket on eventbrite. And then roughly an hour before the event, the club would send you an email telling you the location of the event. Otherwise you have an almost guarantee of violence and other protesters. But the location of this event in Little Italy evidently leaked and there were so many bomb threats and death threats to the Italian restaurant where it was going to be held. That they canceled before hours noticed.

The Right and Wrong Way to Teach Children
"Think truly the issue with American education and there's plenty, but the one that is most important for us to focus on is the people that have run our education system over the last 100 years started with Jude John Dewey Woodrow Wilson played a big role is they fundamentally do not understand what education is. We have a completely different opinion of what education is and what it should be. And so if you walk into any government school here in Phoenix or across the country, they believe that education is allowing students to choose what direction they want to go, presenting them with a bunch of options to liberate them from a very broken world and really having young people find themselves. That's a really bad idea. In fact, it's an evil one. It's immoral to say to a fourth grader, you got to start to figure out stuff for your figure out your own path. Instead, education comes from a Latin word, which means to lead forth. And the next question is, well, what are you leading them for towards? The truth. You're leading them forth towards a fulfilling life towards beauty towards truth towards goodness towards virtue. And so therefore you must know at the end in goal, the end goal is before you even begin the education process. Far too often teachers will get their fourth or 5th graders kind of sitting around a room and they'll ask them their opinions on the news cycle. A controversial thing that shouldn't be controversial to say is it's completely irrelevant with a 5th grader opinion is on the news cycle. That's not what education is. It's not about the votes of a 5th or a 6th grade. You can get their perspectives and guess what? You need to correct them when they're wrong.

"Found disturbing. There were pages and pages of variations on the term illegal aliens. This was the term had been used to categorize this particular book. That's Jill Barron in the documentary changed the subject. A group of Dartmouth students protested the use of the term illegal alien, but they discovered that the problem wasn't with Dartmouth. We didn't realize that it was like a national database that applied to every institution. It was, in some ways, our naive understanding of systems. So the students filed a petition with the Library of Congress to change the subject heading. And the revision was accepted. But this was 2016, a year when the question of immigration was at the center of a contentious presidential race. Republican members of Congress got wind of the proposed change and decided to block it. Cruz won a four Republican lawmakers to sign a letter urging the Library of Congress not to eliminate the term illegal aliens from search terms and cataloging. Here's Diane black, a then congressional representative from Tennessee. What can you believe that the Library of Congress would make a decision with a bunch of liberal students from Dartmouth university who sent a petition to them to say that this was a dehumanizing or an inflammatory term. And to make that decision on political correctness to change something that has been in the lexicon there at our Library of Congress since back in the early 1900s, it's just unbelievable to me. The change was successfully blocked into this day illegal alien is still an official term in the Library of Congress subject headings. But the incident breathes new life into a movement among librarians who want to reform cataloging. Even when that requires working through slow moving bureaucracies. It's an intellectual infrastructure. Emily drew pinsky. Most people don't even know it exists, much less, get exercised about it. It's an incredibly difficult ship to maneuver. In 2013, drabinski published an article called queering the catalog, queer theory in the politics of correction. She considers herself part of a group of so called critical catalogers, but libraries with their committees and careful processes are a poor match for the speed at which cultures change and evolve. You have a system that can not keep up with the rapidly changing language that LGBTQ plus people use to describe themselves. So that you'll have remnants of old language. And that will be the only language that's there. So gay men, lesbian. But there are many, many other words for people in the contemporary moment. And none of them are in the system. The language is never right. It's never correct because it's always delayed. If language could even be correct in the first place, which I think it probably can't. She points out that in the Library of Congress classification system, the one her library uses, the problem isn't only how things are named, but that some things aren't named at all. Another example of how bias is in the system is if I want to look up African American women's history, I do a search and it comes up. What if I wanted to do research into the history of white women? White is an unmarked category. It doesn't even appear. It's impossible to retrieve. So the normal is not named at all. For decades, proponents of critical cataloging have been showing the ways that library classification reflects systems of power that are at play outside the library walls. And also reinforces them. Some librarians critical of classification systems want to burn them all down and start over. But they're not in the majority. I always wonder when people say burn it down if they've ever built anything. It can be very, very difficult to build things. The interoperability piece is super important. And if we want libraries to be able to share, we need those systems to continue functioning. Part of the reason classification is so problematic is because it's inherently reductive. Numbers and language are always flattening the thing they're trying to describe. Shrinking big ideas into small codes that can fit on the spine of a book. Talking to library catalogers, I realized this isn't an exact science. It's a craft. One that's at bottom about making sure we have access to the ideas of others. The most magical thing that libraries do is share. I use OCLC and my records are there. And then I have colleagues on the other side of the planet who are using those same systems as well. And it means that we can go back and forth borrowing and lending between each other so that interoperability is really important. In a world without order, our classification systems will always be imperfect approximations. But the shelves of a library will always be a place that try to give our humanity some structure some sense. Or at least help you find the book you're looking for. Which will have a call number on it between zero and 999. For on the media, I'm Molly Schwartz.

"Stuffed in the 300s. And then when it came to the LGBTQ books and the women's history books and books on immigrant history, all of those were in the 300s as well. And I realized that women immigrants and people of color were all being pigeonholed in this very strange 300 section. So we just started moving them. She and her student interns decided to put president Obama where they thought he belonged. In the 900s. Next to the other presidents. And that was the beginning of changing Dewey of rebelling against Dewey. De corsi Hines wrote about her frustrations with Dewey in a New York Times essay called oh Dewey, where would you put me? There have been critiques of Melville Dewey and his system dating back to the early 1900s and recently some libraries have been ditching Dewey in favor of bookstore style organization. Public libraries are rolling out a new system where books are now organized by categories such as animals or computers. People don't come in and go, I feel like in 8 11 today, no, they think I want poetry. The Greenwood public libraries ditching Dewey for a shelf system they call subject savvy. For most the Dewey decimal systems 145 years in use, Melville Dewey has been celebrated as a kind of founding father of American librarianship. We're always searching for heroes and Dewey was an early library pioneer whose influence was very wide. Wayne Wigan is a library historian and the author of irrepressible reformer, a biography of Melville Dewey. He describes how Melville do we created the Dewey decimal system in the early 1870s when he was a student at Amherst college. The Amherst college campus between 18 70 and 1874 was a very white Anglo Saxon Protestant male dominated world. Do we pretty much programmed into his system the priorities of courts which brought also the biases and the prejudices of that world into his classification scheming tell us very easily in the 200s and the religions which heavily privileges Protestantism against all other kinds of religion. In fact, 9 tenths of the 200s are dedicated to Christianity. Like David Starr Jordan, Hulu Miller wrote about in her book, Melville Dewey was a late 19th century eccentric who loved to classify things. In fact, the lives of Melville Dewey and David Starr Jordan have some other eerie parallels. They were both born into strict Protestant households and upstate New York in 1851, and they both died in 1931. And do we also had views that made him, if not an outright eugenicist, at least eugenics adjacent. He was certainly sympathetic with the ideas that the eugenicists put forth. He did not see black people as equal to white people. He did not see Jewish people as equal to white people. Books by black authors were classified in Dewey under slavery or colonization. Even a book of poems by James Walden Johnson, a famous black writer. When LGBTQ topics get doing numbers in the 1930s, their categorized as abnormal psychology, perversion, derangement, and medical disorders. That system will reflect the ideology of the people who designed it. Emily drabinski is the interim chief librarian of the meaner east library at cuny. You can add new language and revise old language, but essentially you are always putting a new item into a preexisting system. The Dewey decimal system is like the original YouTube algorithm. Its power comes from the fact that it groups books next to other books on related subjects, so that when you're browsing the shelves, you're basically recommended other books you might like. Dewey wasn't the first person to think of this idea, but he was a brilliant businessman who found himself in the right place at the right time. Andrew Carnegie was donating millions of dollars to put up thousands of public libraries across the country and it was an a rare community that did not have a public library by 1920. And Dewey was poised to supply them with an organizational system and an army of librarians to implement it. And his scheme was there, and it was being promoted by his students and the library press and the library organizations. For Dewey, his classification was always meant to organize all the knowledge in the world. But of course times change, new technology gets invented, cultural norms evolve, geopolitics shift. So the Dewey decimal system is regularly revised. For a long time, those revisions happened within a kind of black box. But according to Caroline succi, who works at the Library of Congress, where she spent 9 years as the Dewey program manager, it's become more democratic over time. A lot of work has been done to really promote this community engagement aspect for the Dewey classification, which I think can only make it better and make it stronger. And have community members take ownership of it as well. Since 2019 proposed Dewey revisions are posted online and open to public comment. Librarians can even contribute to numbers back into the system. And of course, an especially frustrated librarian can always just go rogue. There's no library police that are gonna come out and tell the library they've done it wrong. Libraries are always free to arrange materials according to the way they want them and the more best serve their users. But that's easier said than done. Anytime there's a major change to a classification system, it could wreak havoc with the collection because that means that all the bibliographic workers have to be changed. But then all the physical items have to be relabeled and then resolved. And then signage has to change. And I mean, there's just a whole lot that has to happen in order to reclassify large swaths of material. Aside from Dewey, there are other library classification systems, including the Library of Congress classification system. It's one of the other largest systems in the world, and it's the brainchild of another white man that's beset with some of the same problems as Dewey. The Library of Congress classification system comes from Thomas Jefferson's collection of materials. The Library of Congress, the initial collection for Congress, burns down, Jefferson makes a donation to the state of his personal collection and the classification reflects his original order for his own materials. Instead of using numbers to classify books, the Library of Congress system uses subject headings. And in 2014, a student at Dartmouth college named Melissa Padilla was doing a research project on undocumented youth organizing. She went to meet with Jill Barron, a Dartmouth librarian to find resources. And they noticed a subject heading that Melissa

Most Conservatives Would Say Gov't Is the Biggest Threat to Freedom...
"You know, most people in the conservative movement would say that government is the greatest threat to our freedoms. It's hard to disagree with that. The FBI is going after pro life leaders all across the country. The Department of Justice is going after political dissidents, Steve Bannon, Peter Navarro and many others. They rated Mar-a-Lago and took documents way outside of the purview of what they were allowed to get. Now, I would say that people in the traditional right, people in the old right, they get government tyranny pretty well. They're able to describe it. They talk about how the progressives violated separation of powers and consent to the governed on how Woodrow Wilson and John Dewey and many others threw away the kind of promise of the American constitution and they tried to write a new constitution because they basically believe thanks to technology, a new era is here. I think all of that is great and it's important to remember it and to repeat it and to clarify that. But one of the things that frustrates, let's just say those of us on the new right, the maga right, the America first movement. Is when people fail to recognize and realize that it's not just government that is coming after our freedoms. We must recognize that the threat landscape is not just in the FBI the CIA the Department of Justice, the IRS, or the EPA, and the fourth branch of government. No, there has been an effort, a movement to create an extra constitutional method to take your stuff, to silence you and violate your rights. This movement has been at work for over a decade. Now, we talk about the woke mind virus. We talk about critical race theory, post post structuralism. We talk about all these different factors coming together and how they are able to be implemented into all major institutions in American society.

I will focus my mind and my thoughts and my affections. Let me share some of their personal with you. 5 years ago, I went through the most 6 years ago. I went through the most traumatic season of my life. Here's what happened one week, my godmother died. I was expecting that. The next week, my mother died. And didn't tell me she was leaving. Three days after my mother died, my best friend from college died. Literally, one hour after he helped me playing my mother's funeral, he had a massive heart attack. Three weeks after my mother died, my sister died. So I want you to imagine planning four funerals. Picking out forecasts and having to deliver four eulogies. For the closest people in my life, in less than 30 days. 5 days after being my sister, my brother had a message stroke. And the doctor said, it's because of something that's called broken heart syndrome. I never knew broken heart syndrome. Here I am the man of faith. Yeah, I am the preacher. The man of God. I'm the one who's always comedic always a clown, always joking. Here I'm the one who's always is hopeful. And yet, that's no hope. I couldn't even read the word of God. I couldn't even. I didn't want to hear it. I didn't want to hear people tell me your mother's in a better place. I want it to literally go taekwondo on anybody who told me she's done a better place don't cry. I know she's in a better place. I'm not hurt to close her where she is. I'm hurting me because of where she's not. Please miss me with that before I chop you right in your throat. I was so discouraged. I was so depressed, I was so stressed. I couldn't get out of the bed. I shut my calendar down. They said pass it when you come at the preach. I said, never rear it. I didn't know if I'd ever appreciate again. I was just so broken. I was so broken to this very day. My family, I still have my mother's messages. On my phone, I would never delete them. Every now and then I just want to hear a voice. And I just, it's an old message. I just play it just to hear a voice, and I had to eventually go and get therapy. It took me about 18 months to kind of find some sense of balance. And I'm still not where I want to be now. Mother's Day, I crowd there. My mother's birthday, I'm sick. I know she's in heaven. Holidays don't quite feel the same. And now I understand that grief is the price that I pay for love, but I was so broken so disheveled. So discombobulated and didn't know what I was gonna do. And the enemy kept telling me you prayed for so many other people. You seen God perform miracles for others. Why didn't he do it for you? Well, people believe in faith in you. I was so hurt and do me a favor. Do me a favor before you criticize me for my vulnerability. Don't you ever criticize a person's steps if you haven't wolfed in their shoes? I would just, I would just broken. I really was. I'd never been that broken in my entire life. But you know what? I've begun to get back out and push the word of God.

I say the N word say N word to transformation. It's right here in B not conformed to this world. But listen, but be transformed. That word in Greek is the word we get metamorphosis from. The word renewing is when we get the word renovation from. It's in the present perfect imperative in Greek, which means it's a continuous action. What it literally says is every day your mind and my mind must be in a constant state of renovation and metamorphosis. It's a beautiful picture. It's really a picture of a house. When a house gets old, it's subject to dilapidation. Termites, asbestos, other issues, periodically, would cause us to have to renovate house has to go through metamorphosis. Paul says the mind is analogous to an old house. There are treasury termites. Adversarial asbestos. That can get into your mind. And if you're not careful, it can strip your mind. Of everything that's powerful of everything that's stable. So the mind has to be renovated. Reminds me of Solomon and proverbs 23 7. Very interesting. Paul's stop and says this. For as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he? Now, in Hebrew, Polish trying to show how a Solomon is trying to show how the head and heart are one single entity. So etymologically, he's saying hidden heart want into it. As a person thinks in their hearts, head and heart are together in the Hebrew language. It's one. But in the English or in the biological, that's an impossibility. What do you mean? As a person thinks in their hearts, that's biologically impossible. Why? Because the heart doesn't think. How can you think in your heart? The purpose of the heart, scientifically, is to pump blood. Scientifically, biologically, our hearts don't think all thinking is in the cerebrum. The cerebral cortex, the thalamus, the hypothalamus, the pineal gland, the medulla oblongata. Scientifically all thought starts here. So what really is Solomon saying in proverbs 23 7? Here's what he's saying. Very important. As a person thinks psychologically. In their hearts, cardiologist. So is he or she anthropologically? As a person thinks that's your psychology. That's where it begins. In your heart, cardiological. That's how we behave. So is he anthropologically? That's what we become. As a person thinks, that's where it begins. In their hearts, that's how we behave. So is he or she? That's what we become. So we become inevitably, what? Has existed in our minds? That's why Descartes put it this way, cognitive ergo soon, I think therefore I am. And so the battle for us is not for your finances or your family, it's for your mind.

Come on and give God praise and give them glory. Hallelujah. So, we have to give God the upward presentation. Then we go backwards from conformation. Don't let the spirit of the age overwhelm you. But then, after the upward presentation and backwards from conformation, thoroughly policy says, in order to glorify God, that needs to be the N word trend transformation. I say the N word say inward transformation. It's right here in B not conformed to this world. But listen, but be transformed. That word in Greek is the word we get metamorphosis from. The word renewing is when we get the word renovation from. It's in the present perfect imperative in Greek, which means it's a continuous action. What he literally says is every day your mind and my mind must be in a constant state of renovation and metamorphosis. It's a beautiful picture. It's really a picture of a house. When a house gets old, it's subject to dilapidation. Termites, asbestos, other issues, periodically what causes us to have to renovate house has to go through metamorphosis. Paul says the mind is analogous to an old house. There are treasures termites. Adversarial asbestos. That can get into your mind. And if you're not careful, it can strip your mind. Of everything that's powerful of everything that's stable. So the mind has to be renovated. Reminds me of Solomon and proverbs 23 7. Very interesting. Paul's problem says this. For as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he? Now, in Hebrew, Polish trying to show how a Solomon is trying to show how the head and heart are one single entity. So edamame etymologically, he's saying hidden heart want into it. As a person thinks in their hearts, head and heart are together in the Hebrew language. It's one. But in the English or in the biological, that's an impossibility. What do you mean? As a person thinks in their hearts, that's biologically impossible. Why? Because the heart doesn't think. How can you think in your heart? The purpose of the heart, scientifically, is to pump blood. Scientifically, biologically, our hearts don't think all thinking is in the cerebrum. The cerebral cortex, the thalamus, the hypothalamus, the pineal gland, the Maduro, oblongata. Scientifically, all thought starts here. So what really is Solomon saying in proverbs 20 three 7? Here's what he's saying, very important. As a person thinks psychologically. In their hearts, cardiologist. So is he or she anthropologically? As a person thinks that's your psychology. That's where it begins. In your heart, cardiologic. That's how we behave. So is he anthropologically? That's what we become. As a person thinks, that's where it begins. In their hearts, that's how we behave. So is he or she? That's what we become. So we become inevitably what has existed in our minds. That's why Descartes put it this way. You told ergo soon, I think therefore I am. And so the battle for us is not for your finances or your family. It's for your mind. Because if the enemy can get your

Not confirmation conformation. Listen, what he says in verse two and B not conformed, he says, don't assimilate. Don't fashion yourself into the ion, which is the spirit of the world. Very powerful passage because at the time of the first century, Rome was considered to be the Citadel of the Caesars, Rome was the darling of the human race. When Paul wrote in the first century Rome was that home of Claudius and Caligula of Nero and Tiberius, it was a place where barbarity was celebrated. It was the darling of the whole world. And Paul's ultimate desire was to get to Rome because it was the Citadel. It was the darling. It was the empire. But there were some believers who had moved into Rome, but Rome had historically been paganistic and pantheistic and polytheistic and the message of Christ, Paul wanted that to be paramount in Rome. But the challenge was this, when believers had begun to develop and grow in Rome, the spirit of the age was so intense that you couldn't demarcate between the saints in Rome versus the ace in Rome. Paul was saying that many of the believers had been affected by this Roman spirit that did not prioritize Christ. It was about the empire and power and greed and selfishness and Paul says, in order to glorify God, don't conform to what's happening in the world.

"That you're responding to his mercies. And then Paul says it is a reasonable mandate. I have a seat you therefore my beloved brethren by the mercies of God that you present your body is a living sacrifice. A living sacrifice. That is interesting. I need to dig that for a moment. That word living is the word Xiao in Greek. Where you get the word zoology from. Zao through saya living zao through say a living sacrifice. And this is very, very interesting because they brought in the first century and the Old Testament with the Greeks would have called to God the Acapulco to say, which is a dead sacrifice. Some of you remember in the book of genesis chapter 22, gato Abraham. Abraham, take your son, Isaac. Up on mount moriah. To offer him as a sacrifice on the God. Abraham gets his son. Isaac, they go up on mount moriah. He builds the altar. He has a knife. He has the wood. He has the dagger. He gets ready to kill his son, to offer him as an oxycodone under Jehovah. And right before he gets ready to kill his son, to offer him as a dead sacrifice. God speaks to him and said, Abraham, lay no hand on the lad. Look in the thick, there's a ram there. Release your son and get the ram, the lamb to offer the lamb, the ram as a sacrifice, because in the Old Testament, God only accepted bed sacrifices. In the book of exodus, God tells Moses to go to pharaoh and tell Ferrell to let the people go. God sends ten plagues. And then got speaks to him and say, tell the people in Egypt that they should get a lamb. Kill the lamb and put the blood of the lamb on the door post. Because this night in Egypt, the death angel is coming through Egypt. And if the blood of the lamb has not been applied to the door post, the death angel will go into that home to kill the first born. Because in the Old Testament, they had to bring unto God pigeons, turtles. You lambs for the priest to kill to apply the blood to offer as an to say a dead sacrifice under God. In the Old Testament, they had to bring dead sacrifices. But Paul says, in this text, that since we no longer live by a legalistic milieu, that since we no longer live under the law, that God doesn't deserve a dead sacrifice. And I pop fish go through, say, Apollo says, God wants us to sell. A living. Sacrifice. And I don't know about you. But when God wrote by this morning, in his golden chariot, chauffeured by the invisible winds and dispatched his darling angels to touch our bodies with a finger of love. And our eyes, I think it came open to greet the virgin light of a brand new day. We rest under the Canopy of God's benevolence favor and grace. And since you and I are alive today, how dare us enter into this beautiful place or watch online and give God a dead sacrifice. God deserves a lie. Worship and a life praise and live glory to God. Lives giving lives service life, praise. The Bible says, let everything that hack breath, which means you're alive, praise Ye the lord and dip and do me a favor. When you come to worship, get your time enough to make sure you're seated by the right people. And here's how you know if you're seated by the right people. Just get on your raw and holla at your role. And if you holla at your row and nobody hollows back, that's the wrong road to sit on. No, when you come to worship, you ought to look at somebody and say, Halle. If they don't say Lou ya, find somebody else to sit by 'cause you wanna be beside somebody who has some life and has some energy and some praise. Is there anybody in this place who came to give God a live person a living sacrifice? Nothing dead, but a living sacrifice. Hallelujah. And so and so the upward, the upward presentation. It's your responding to his mercy. It's the least that you and I. It's a reasonable service, a reasonable worship. Then Paul says, listen, once we give God the upward presentation, secondly, in order to glorify God, listen, he says, go backwards from conformation. Say, backwards from conformation.

Come on, say don't get mad at us. We will bless the lord at all times and his friend. Continually. Be in our mouths. Listen. And see, here's the reality. Paul says for of him. And through him and to him are all things to whom be glory. That worked gore then the Greek is the word dark side. It means a place of preeminence. It means reverential adoration. It means to make God an audience of one. Because up in the heavens do the chair bums and serials bow. 24 hours a day. And perpetual obeisance to our God who sits on the throne. And the only time when God is most comfortable in the earth is when we create, when we create environments, that remind God of what he's accustomed to in the heavenly. That's why the scriptures teach us that God inhabits the praises of his people. And so Paul says for off him and threw him in two help are all things the home be glory forever our man. Literally this passage in the Greek manuscripts that were no chapters. It was one continuous flow. And so what Paul says is God deserves to be worshiped. And since God deserves to be worshiped, I beseech you therefore my beloved brethren. That were besieged and the Greek is the word paracale. Para meaning alongside the verb cala meaning to call. It is a military summons parallel beseech. In the first century world, whenever those generals were preparing for battle, they would issue a parallel for every soldier to come and engage in combat. He opposed uses a military term to call those of us who are soldiers of the lord Jesus, to engage in worship to our God, our warfare that is not colonel. And God says, through Paul, that if God is going to be glorified, because sometimes I think we've created different identities for what really brings glory. And unfortunately, sometimes I believe that the things that we think glorify God may not actually bring glory to God. So Paul says, if you and I want to give God a Senate glory is right here, I beseech you there for my beloved brethren. By the merchants of God, it is that you present your bodies, your soma, your essence, all of who you are unto God. And so the first thing that glorifies God get this, it is the upward presentation. Can somebody say the upward presentation? I present we present everything we are. Everything we have as a vertical act of reverence to God who sits on the throne and Paul says, here's why we should do this. God deserves the upward presentation. It is because we are responding to God's mercies. It is amazing passage. He says, I've been seat you therefore. My beloved brethren, here it is, by the mercies of God. I'm urging you. I'm compelling you. I am empowering you to give God an upward gift and upward presentation. Why? He says, you're responding to the mercies of God. Now, this is what blew my mind because all my life I thought it was. I thought it was mercy. So we say things like lord have mercy. Paul says, no, it's really not mercy. Mercy is really plural. The Greek word there connotes plurality. That's why it says Mercedes of God. Not just one, but it is plural mercies of God. Paul says, it is not singular mercy. Because God is too inexhaustible to be relegated by singularity. It is not mercy. It is mercies. Meaning anything that God has deliberately withheld from each of us. That we rightly deserved. It is a type of mercy. It is one of God's mercies, anything that God has deliberately and intentionally withheld from us that we deserve is one of his mercies. Okay, let me come this way. Perhaps there are some of you who are in town for the football game yesterday. The HBCU classic. And maybe some of you remember back in your college days. 25 or 30 years ago at North Carolina central ANT or duke or at Davison or at North Carolina state or the university of North Carolina. Some of you remember some of your college days before you be in church and 9 30 on a Sunday morning. Before you had given your life to God, some of us, football season, we'd have we have gone out on Saturday and all day long watching the game and some of us would have imbibed on some beverages that were not necessarily Kool-Aid iced tea or communion. Come on talk to me somebody, somebody remembers back in your BC days, you'll before Christ days, perhaps you can solve some things that you should not have consumed. And if you're not careful, you could have consumed too much of what you should not have been consuming and your college days. And even in your inebriation. And in your intoxication, when you got behind a wheel of an automobile, somehow some way in spite of our irresponsibility. God allows you to get back to your dorm room or your apartment safely. You didn't get a vehicle of homicide or a DUI. Can I tell you what it was? It was not because you are coherent driver. It is not because of the Dick's activity of your senses, the only reason you made it back safely in your inebriation and your irresponsibility is because God gave you a drunk mercy. Am I talking to somebody who can look back over your life and testify, I've been there, done that, but I'm thankful for its mercy. Okay. All right, maybe you've never had alcohol before. But maybe in 1985, when you were in love with Charlie or junebug, you remember him.

So we give God praise that I want you to get your bibles, and we're gonna jump quick into the word of God. I want to look at the book of Romans chapter 12, a very familiar passage of scripture that I want to share with you I don't think the praise team for just my God, the music ministry for confirming the message. A very familiar passage Romans 12 one you find these words. I beseech you therefore brethren. By the mercies of God, that you present your body is a living sacrifice. Holy and acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world. But be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable.

And through him and to him, are all things to whom be glory forever, a man for of him threw him into him, are all things to whom be glory forever, man. I want you to consider this thought this morning, very simply. Giving God the glory. Let's give God the glory. You may be sitting in prison or let's give God the glory. My elevation family I shall never forget one of my most recent birthdays. It is nostalgic for me even now because this was the last birthday. That all of my siblings and I spent together prior to the death of my baby brothers some years ago and my sister a few years ago. My two older sisters and my two younger brothers and I were gathered at my oldest sister's home in honor of my birthday. And when I arrived at my oldest sister's home, I was met by my older sister at the front door. And she met me with some intriguing words. She said brother, I said yes. She said, I did not get you a gift this year for your birthday. And I got to admit I was a little taken aback, particularly because I had just purchased her a gift for her birthday, you know. And so brother wanted some sense of reciprocity. And so I began to inquire as to why she decided to not get me a gift. And she said something that intrigued me. She said, I didn't get you a gift this year. I said, wow, she said, because I was struggling with something. Okay? Well, what were you struggling with? I was struggling with this. What do you give to somebody who's seemingly has everything? And I knew she wasn't struggling. She was just being trifling. So I responded with my own sense of facetiousness. What do you give to somebody who's seemingly has everything? You give them some more of what you think they say in hand. Pretty good answer would just say. And it was right there in that context that God sent me a fact straight from the holy ghost fax machine of heaven. And I thought about another relationship that I have, but more specifically, the relationship that we all share with the God who is sovereign. Because in light of my sister's question slash statement, what do you give to somebody who's seemingly has everything? I hear Paul say to us this morning that you and I ought to give God the glory. That we ought to give God the glory. But right there, my sister's question statement comes to bear. Because how can we as fallible and finite creatures give God anything that God does not already possess? I mean, can we give God glory? When the psalmist calls him the king of glory. Paul refers to Christ as the hope of glory. Another pussy writer refers to God as the God of all glory. So how can we really give God glory? If God has already king of glory, Christ is the hope of glory and God is the God of all. What can we give to God? Who does not seemingly own everything? But who actually already owns everything? And I thought about God in creation because God and creation knew that at times he would have periodic needs. So what he got do. God knew at times that he wouldn't need a word presented. A word. And so God created an archangel whose name was Gabriel, Gabriel was the word angel. Whenever God wanted to bring a word to his people, often he would use Gabriel. In the book of Luke chapter one verse 26, when he wanted to announce the birth of Jesus and Bethlehem of Judea, he sent Gabriel to Mary to make that heavily annunciation. Why? Because whenever God wanted a word, he would use Gabriel. The book of thessalonians tells us that when chapter four, when Christ comes back in the rapture, Apollo says for the lord himself shoved the sin from heaven with a shout with the voice of the archangel. Scholars believe that voice will be the voice of Gabriel's signifying the return of the lord Jesus because whenever God wanted a word, he would use Gabriel. But then God also knew at times that he would need warfare warfare. So God created an archangel whose name was Michael in the church say Michael. And Michael is the warfare angel. The book of Jude chapter one tells us that when Moses died, that was a battle for the physical remains of Moses. That battle was between the devil and his angels and Michael and the warfare angels from heaven. Michael and his angels won that battle. Took the body of Moses and buried the body in a place where only God is aware of. Why? Because whenever God wanted a word he used Gabriel when God wanted warfare he'd use Michael. In the book of Daniel chapter ten it tells us that Daniel prayed to God for instructions and for direction. And for 21 days for three weeks Daniel was waiting to hear from God. And three weeks after his prayer, Gabriel showed up and Gabriel says Daniel from the first time you prayed Daniel ten 14. From the first time you prayed, God heard your prayer. And God dispatched me Gabriel from heaven to bringing your answer. He says, but I was withstood from some demonic forces around the region of Persia. And I couldn't bring you your answer because Satan's chief demons in the Persian region had me hailed and bound. So God sent Michael. The warfare angel, from heaven to engage in combat, to release me to bring you your answer. Here's why, because whenever God wanted a word, often got what you Gabriel. And when God wanted warfare got what you, Michael. But then got all so new at times that he would need worship. And so got created archangel whose name was Lucifer. And Lucifer was over the praise worship and music departments of heaven. But then Lucifer wanted to be like God. And instead of glorifying God, Lucifer wanted to be worshiped. And God had to evict Lucifer from the heavens. Luke says that he failed as lightning from heaven. And when Lucifer got kicked out of heaven, God never replaced him with one individual who be responsible for worship. Because of that John chapter four says that the father is seeking. Worshippers.

The Plot to Subvert the Western Judeo-Christian Tradition of the US
"Folks, welcome back. We're talking to the authors of battle for the American mind uprooting a century of miseducation, Pete hegseth and David Goodwin. So we're talking about what amounts to a conspiracy to subvert the western judeo Christian tradition baked into the heart of the United States of America. And there's no denying it. People like Dewey, they were on a crusade, and they have up till now, succeeded. Yes, they have. And you know what? They didn't know what the destination would be, per se. They just knew where the destination was away from. So it was always progress away from the western Christian paideia, the biblical roots of our and free thinking roots of the nexus of Athens and Jerusalem. They wanted to move away from that. That was progress. So you say conspiracy, that's not a wrong term. We use plot or heist because they passed it off to the next group of radical thinkers who carried the ball down the field based on how much God and other basic values have been stripped away. So enter the Frankfurt school, enter critical theory, which where did it land? A hundred blocks from here at Columbia University at the teacher's college. And these are marxists who fled Hitler while our boys are fighting over in Europe and World War II. And they are greeted with open arms with their radical views soon to infuse into the teacher's college. And within a couple of decades, one third of teachers in America at elite schools had been taught by the critical theorists of the Frankfurt school. So how do you get critical race theory in your zoom classroom? It is in the curriculum and the pedagogy of how the entire educational industrial complex works. And when you unravel it all, it goes back to those early efforts and each step which we lay out the unions, which used to be conservative teacher associations that ended up scripture to teachers to use in the classroom, captured by the unions. Well, then the unions create the Department of Education in a giveaway to Jimmy

How Fox's Pete Hegseth Got Involved With 'Battle for the American Mind'
"Hey, welcome back folks. We're talking about American education, battle for the American mind, is the book uprooting a century of miseducation, David Goodwin has written it with Pete hegseth in that David. You're the head of the association of classical Christian schools. So you're like a brainy guy. Pete is just like a talking hit on Fox and Friends. We know he has nothing to say if it's not on a teleprompter. Pete, how did you get involved in this? I've always learned to join forces with people smarter than me. That's the key. Andy's humble, which makes me hate him even more. You went to Princeton, you went to the Harvard Kennedy school of government. What did you major in at Princeton? Politics. You did. I did. Political philosophy. As sort of a degree of that. But I'll tell you what I've learned in this project, how much I didn't learn. I didn't learn any of this stuff. My kids are in classical Christian schools and all I say every day is, why can't I go back to school and learn these things? Okay, you're singing my song. I have said this over and over in the last couple of decades. I learned something. I wrote a book called if you can keep it Franklin's famous line. And because of Oz Guinness, whose book I had read, I understood things, and all I could think of is how did I not get this? I didn't get any of this. So you obviously going through this elite schools, which like, Yale, they don't teach you this stuff. They teach you John Dewey on steroids, I guess. And they teach you now the latest manifestations of the Frankfurt school and critical theory, which is now we now see as critical race theory, and we talk about every day. But it was just the water in which we swam. I took social studies. We all took social studies who invented social studies. Yeah, why is it not history? Why is it social studies? We can't get into that. We can't get into that, don't talk about it. I didn't know where that all came from. David had done the research and then I was able to lay it upon the environment in which we live right now and realize we all got a progressive education. Yeah. Almost everyone watching guaranteed. Right. Got a progressive education that was started by atheist advanced by marxists who had their own agenda and it all happened subtly, and a lot of us think we aren't infected, but we are. And so you have to dig under the ruins of what used to exist. And that's what David did in this project. This is the way education our founders were educated, how free people and republics actually perpetuate themselves. Why don't we do

So we're going to hire a school teacher and we're going to get them to teach the kids in the neighborhood. And they're going to teach exactly what we want them to teach obviously. They're the experts, but we're not going to let them teach things that we think are wrong. And that's how we got public education quote unquote. When did that go crazy and wrong? Well, certainly you mentioned some of the star players, John Dewey, early part of the 20th century. That was the epiphany I had is I researched the book originally, was that this doesn't date back to the 1960s, which most of us think. That's when you see the manifestation of it. It dates to an earlier time, right? Between 1915 and 1930, when the progressives actually built the school system that we now know in America. Okay, and that is true of everything. Now, there's not just education. Like, we think, oh, the 60s. Well, the 60s is when it bore fruit, but you can trace all of these things back. Most of the things that we know are wrong, which end up being anti American and cultural Marxism. They did begin originally in that time, whether you're talking about progressivism in the Protestant churches or whatever. All of this stuff, the seeds were planted then by some key

Deborah Flora Discusses Her New Film 'Whose Children Are They?'
"I'm so excited that there are people like my guest right now, Deborah flora, making films and getting the word out about what is happening. Deborah, welcome back. Thank you, Eric. It's great to be back with you. I really appreciate it. Look, thrilled to have you and thrilled to get the word out about the film. I want to tell people right out of the gate. It's whose children are they. You can find it at Salem now dot com where you can find a ton of great films, Salem now dot com. We'll just go to whose children are they dot com. How is it, Deborah? Because you're behind this film and you're an expert on this at this point, how did it come to be? That teachers unions became radical leftists. When did it happen that they were anything but a teacher's union and worried about the wages are worried about teachers being treated fairly? When did they become a politically activist organization at war with the parents of the kids they're supposed to be teaching? You know, Eric, that's such an important question because the reality is this movie is pro teacher pro parent pro student, which used to be the golden triangle of education. But what got right in the middle of their teachers unions, which you don't represent teachers in fact, they bullied them most of the time. And our documentary interviews a lot of break teachers willing to stand up. But it's been a long road getting here. I mean, the reality is John Dewey, the father of modern education in the 20s. He was an honorary president of the teachers union, and his agenda was Soviet style school. So they had gone that way for a long time. Teachers unions now, many of them refer to parents as barriers or dissenters trying to push us outside. They bully teachers into submission. And really, their goal, there was a past president when the teachers unions who said, you know, when students start paying dues, we'll represent students, but they don't. So we don't care about the students.

Life Imitates Art With 'Wag the Dog'
"Everybody needs to go back and rent the 1997 classic movie wag the dog. In it Robert De Niro plays a political consultant who gets called in by a president who's been caught having sex with a campfire girl in The White House. So in order to the election is in two weeks, in order to distract people, they make up a fake war with Albania and then they film the war and they have Kirsten Dunst and they dress her up as a peasant running with a bag of Cheetos, but later they Photoshop it to be her doll. And they just, they manufacture this crisis out of thin air. That is exactly what they did with COVID. It's what they did with George Floyd. It's what they did with Jussie Smollett with Russia collusion, it's what they're doing now with the Ukraine and I guarantee you if that tragic war ends tomorrow, the very next day, we're going to learn that systemic racism lies behind putting things in alphabetical order. And that using alphabetical order is a continuation of slavery and it was invented by a slaveholders conspiracy and the Catholic Church is tied up in it and we all have to repent using alphabetical order. Now, you think I'm kidding. I just took that from a real headline that said that the Dewey decimal system is systemically racist.

The Similarities Between Terry McAuliffe and Horace Mann
"I don't know about you, but I like talking to John's mirror. And I was talking to him was a yesterday about John Dewey, Horace Mann, about education about what mcauliffe said before he went down in flames and John, I thought, let's keep talking about that because we had ten minutes here. And I said, this is actually so important. And that's why when he said what he said that parents shouldn't have the right to interfere in what the teachers teach I just thought that is one of the wildest statements I've ever heard. The idea that an adult running for office could say such a thing or even things such a thing, again, call me naive, but I was absolutely astonished. Well, it was a great moment of candor. Terry mcauliffe said in a debate, parents should not be telling teachers what to teach in schools. We have experts for that. That was very candid. And as I said last time, Horace Mann, the founder of mass compulsory public education in America, Horace Mann, school for teachers is associated with Columbia University. I remember seeing it when it would get off to Trevor bridge. He was a Unitarian. He kept that kind of quiet. He was a social gospel reformer, and he thought it was the job of public schools to save children from their parents. You had all these fundamentalist Christians who believed in the Bible. You had all these Catholic immigrants getting off the boat like my ancestors. And they had all these reactionary views. They were not on board with modern science with progressive ideas with eugenics with all the things that the progressive movement had in mind.

Woodrow Wilson, before he ran for president, wrote a book about how the constitution was this archaic obsolete rickety 18th century mechanism we needed clear it out of the way so that we could run the government according to the dictates of modern science.

John Dewey's Persepctive of American Education and Stalin's Education
"He came back to the United States and he wrote Uh, in a fairly popular left wing, progressive, so called magazine. Called the New Republic. Then he wrote in the New Republic. How impressive Russia's educational system was how it was unifying the country. How the instruction was the same from one classroom to the other. How the instruction had a purpose, not just to learn language and science and mathematics and so forth. But the support the commune that is the state that was being developed. Of course by Stalin. And he was the man who had the greatest influence in American education to this day. To this day, and journalists like Jay Rosen, who is a professor out of New York and teaches journalism and others. Point to John Dewey is the great hero. John Dewey, who destroyed American Education opened the door wide to what's taking place. Today. He is the founding father of what's taking place today. As people will learn again when they read the book, and so again, your experience in the Soviet Union is very, very important. People need to understand. That we need to listen to people like Tatiana. They lived under the iron fist on the other side of the Iron Curtain. And they see similarities and the reason they see similarities is because there are similarities. And the fact that the American media has let down the American people. For more than a decade, and especially now. Is the sort of thing that always happens because when push comes to shove The media. The American media is weak. Predictable.

If you really think about it you don't start it to just eventually folded or close it or give up on any of those things. I think the ultimate goal is to sell it.

‘Bachelor’ Matt James Dumps Show Winner Rachael Kirkconnell Over Racist Past
"It. What's going on with the bachelor? They're having a little ratings trouble. The bachelor had a lot of trouble last night. Um, For one thing, this is the end of the season for with the first black bachelor and you know that there was a big scandal that unfolded. Wind up round up, knocking out Chris Harrison, the host of the show, who was not on last night. He was replaced by another guy named Emmanuel Art Show, and Chris Harrison is probably out for good from the Bachelor world. Next fall. They're coming back with two seasons of the bachelor red. He's not hosting it. On. The reason is That the black bachelor Matt James chose as not to be his fiance, But I don't know what his winner of the final Rose Ah white girl from the South who had participated in Plant, a plantation party. I didn't even know apart. We don't know about this in New York, Dewey, a plantation party. They go. They rent out plantations and dress up like it's the before the civil war. And the governor's these southern governors with the black face from years ago or the sick? Yeah, And who knew that this was going on? I mean, we don't in New York. We don't know about this, but This was a shock that this girl participated in this ante bellum party and subsequent when the news got out in the pictures were published in all the tabloids, especially the English tabloids picked us up very fast. And what happened was Rachel Lindsay, who had been the first black bachelorette Interviewed Chris Harrison for extra and showed him these pictures and said, What do you think of all of this? And he defended it and said, Well, I don't know. Maybe this was okay a couple of years ago to be doing this. Well, certainly not ever OK? And, uh, Rachel Lindsey said Theo said to Chris Harrison on extra. We'll look at these pictures of this plantation party. What role would I play in this party? Well, obviously, the role would be slave. And this was like this stopped. This ended Chris Harrisons career cold and stop the conversation. And this woke this guy. I met James up to the fact that this girl that he had sort of proposed to, uh, you know, had persisted. Hated in this racist party. Well, of course last night on the show. He dumped her for good. And and she had Tonto try and explain, although very inadequately how she got involved in all of this and that, and she said she never even thought of it. If anything, She started dating a black man on the bachelor and didn't think to herself. Oh, you know, two years ago, I participated in this completely racist activity. It didn't even dawn on her. So, uh, you know, very strange stuff. The audience really tuned out during this conversation about race last night. They did not want to hear it. They only want to know about the bachelor and bachelorette when it comes to rose petals on the bed. And, you know, flying and hot air balloons. You know over Mexico, but they don't want to know anything bad that's
