I'm not sleepy and they ain't no place I'm going to It is the Jesus Christ Show. I am mister. Your holy host. Happy to be with you this Sunday as I am with you every single Sunday, right here answering your questions. And talk about the things that truly matter in life and the afterlife. I encourage you to be bold and brave. And go to the phone with your theology, question or life situation question anywhere. In the U. S of a dial 805 201534. That's 805 2015. 34 Let's talk to Jeff. Jeff, Welcome to the Jesus Christ Show. Okay. My main question is, and I'd like to ask a little something else if I can. But my main question is is that I deal with self hate. And I know God probably hates that. But the problem is I've learned that you know, the three fingers pointing out it always comes around and you turn in. Not blame myself for everything in my life, and that started. You know when I was young. Um, but it's still with me today. I don't I I do hate people, but it will eventually come around and I blame myself for my part. And so Just can't get over that hurdle of, uh Of hating myself. And because that's where it boils down to into, you know, depression and, uh, And the second thing was, is that, uh, it is. When did the disciples realize that you died for our sins? I mean, I know they realized that he was Lord, but, uh, And when he said he was that, uh, did they understand right then that they were Um, you know, forgiven for the sense, So the first thing is, uh, well, they're both as important, I guess. Okay. Well, let's take a look at those draft because we only have about a moment here. First of all, self hate has zero value. And the you quickly went over the old illustration that when you point at other people with your pointing finger, there's three fingers pointing back at you. Now that's usually Used to help people understand that judging others Has no benefit because ultimately people can judge you as well. But in your case, you kind of use it as putting things back on yourself. Um, what do you do for a living, Jeff? I'm a carpenter. Okay, Excellent. So you create you build for living. Yes, I love that. I think that's incredibly important. I'm going to give you some As far as you see, this is not a show about medicine or anything like that. So if there is something going on, um chemically Uh, with you dealing with depression. You need to see a professional about that that deals with that, But as far as finding yourself in this Donate your time. Go and help others. Is a great way to remind yourself what a piece of the puzzle you are and how you can play a part in this with everybody else that is very powerful. That will help you see things different. Um, So that's the homework you have is find a soup kitchen or something like that, that you can safely go and help other people for now. Get the focus off of yourself. You're focusing too much on yourself and not on others. That will be a powerful tool for you An imperative to your growth. The second thing is, the disciples knew they went through different things, the things that you see in Scripture or their humanity winning The humanity and doubt coming in and their faith wobbling. They knew I mean, it says in Scripture. Well, they misunderstood this. They misunderstood that about the rising of the temple. All these things, there was confusion. But they knew But they were fearful. And at the point of the resurrection, it all came together and they finally under understood. That dying was not Spiritual death on the cross. It was a physical death. And that their spirituality Would be eternal because of that payment. That's what they knew. That's what they learned and understood in its fullness. After the resurrection.

How Chaos In Afghanistan Emboldened Terrorism - burst 1
"Chaos in afghanistan upton as president biden withdrew military forces leading to a forceful takeover by the taliban today august seventeenth. We will dive into one of the greatest foreign policy. The buckles in modern history. Good afternoon. i'm meeting. Kim and this is the outspoken oma quote. Joe biden has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy national security issue over the past four decades and quote. Who said that not trump not a partisan congressmen or republican operative. That was robert gates. The former secretary of defense under president obama for three years and today as we see significant foreign policy the buckle unfolds in afghanistan that quote is once again reaffirmed now quickly dive into some basic background information as to what is transpiring in afghanistan back in mid april president biden announced immediate withdrawal all american troops from afghanistan by september eleventh. Twenty twenty one. Obviously september eleven was chosen dates because that was to recognize the anniversary of the september eleventh terrorist attacks and which led to the immediate was occupation of afghanistan because at the time afghanistan was harboring osama bin laden on august fifteenth. The taliban took over the capital of kabul effectively toppling. Afghanistan's governments later afghan. President ghani fled the country right before taliban leadership storm the presidential palace and thousands of afghan citizens fled to kabul international airport to skip the taliban. Now while oldest was transpiring. President biden was in camp david and he was strong criticized because he didn't have a strong message or strong immediate message in response to all of this so he traveled back to washington. Dc to address the nation from the white house one of the biggest elements that he was criticized for in the speech was the blame game in which he played and one of the obviously notable people in which she blames forwarded the buckle in afghanistan was trump and sort of implied some blame to bush and obama. He said quote when i came into office. I inherited deal that president trump negotiated with taliban on the his agreement. Us forces would be out of afghanistan. May i twenty twenty one. Just a little over three months after i took office. Us forces had already drawn down during trump administration from roughly fifteen thousand five hundred american force to two thousand five hundred troops in country. The taliban was strongest militarily. Since two dozen one the choice i had to make as your president was added to follow through on that agreement or be prepared to go back to fighting the taliban in the middle of the spring fighting season and quote. And but if you actually look at the deal that trump's state department may with taliban it's not what biden actually described in his address at a nation. Mike pompeo who was secretary of state under president trump said in a recent interview that the deal of the taliban was strictly conditional which meant that deal was was strictly predicated on the taliban committing to a peaceful transfer of power in order for america to withdraw after that commitment to a peaceful transfer of power appel said in a recent interview quote we would have demanded the taliban actually deliver on the conditions that we let out in the agreement including the agreement to engage in meaningful power sharing agreement some that which we struggled to get them to do but made it clear it was going to be required before we completed requirements to fulfil foley withdrawal and unquote. And you know there are some criticisms of the deal. Mike pompeo made with the taliban. Obviously the taliban actually pursuing a peaceful transfer of power from the afghan government was not going to happen. I mean we actually thought. That was being overly idealistic. So people had that criticism upon pales deal but even if biden did not agree with the policy that trump's state departments made in efforts to come to some sort of consensus with the taliban he kind of reversed it. I mean he was president for seven months. Which meant that. He'd independence day department and independence defense department and he could have used his powers as the chief executive to to reverse a deal that the previous administration made i mean for his entire time as president of the united states reversed nearly every single policy. That trump did while he was president. So this is no exception. I mean he should own up to the flaws of the policies in which he tried to pursue in addition to to trump he also blamed the afghan military. He said quote. The truth is but this did on for the more quickly than we had anticipated. So what happened. Afghanistan political leader escape up and fled the country the afghan military collapse. Sometimes we're not trying to fight if anything developments at the past week reinforced the ending. Us military involvement in afghanistan. No was the right decision. American troops cannot ensure not be fighting a war and dying in award. Afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves and quotes. This is honestly one of the most politically cynical things that i've ever heard biden say the afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves. Fifty thousand afghan military soldiers died in darndest entire two decades of us occupation of afghanistan. And the reason why they cannot successively defend themselves against the taliban was because biden himself pulled out a contractors and basically destroyed the afghans dependency on us military which are obviously undermined the ability of afghan military to counter act opposing taliban forces. According to the wall street journal quote in the wake of president biden's withdrawal decision the us pulled its airports air support intelligence and contractors servicing afghanistan planes and helicopters. This meant that afghan military simply cannot operate anymore and quote. Admittedly afghan leadership was significantly underprepared in the wake of the draw because as by afghan officials did not believe america will draw however according to andrew watkins a senior analyst for afghanistan and at the international prizes group research advocacy organization. There was no evidence that the taliban significantly increased their manpower and argue. The only reason why there's summer offensive was successful was due to a lack of us. Air strikes which meant that biden's administration shorter significant blame for the dismantling of the afghan government. What biden actually expect to happen when he pulled the entire the tire. Us presence from afghanistan if the afghan military dependent so much on the us occupation of afghan for the viability of their own independent military force. Then of course when they pulled out of afghanistan. The afghan military by itself was not sufficient enough to defend against the taliban if you're pulling out intelligence contracts that were vital for the dependency of the afghan military than have military is expected to fall when the taliban was advancing to the nation's capital and one of the other things that addition to buy actually blaming everyone except for himself for the marco afghanistan biden also discussed casualties in the in the afghan occupation. He said quote. Lemme ask those who wanted to wanted us to stay. How many more how. Many thousands more of american daughters and sons are willing to risk and quotes according to abc news. There's not been a single american combat death since february eighth twenty which was eighteen months ago. That's not to belittle the two thousand three hundred twelve american soldiers that lost life in afghanistan. But it is the suggests that thousands of stationed american soldiers in the lead up to the afghanistan pull out were not being bogged down by precipitous warfare in combat honestly by contrast more than fifty one thousand taliban fighters were killed by american armed forces which shows a major power imbalance in military superiority between taliban in american forces but aside from that by reportedly sent five thousand additional troops back in afghanistan to aid withdrawal despite his call for not putting sons and daughters at risk he just said that it was egregious to put american sons and daughters at risk for filled mission. So what is different about the five thousand additional troops. He sending back into afghanistan. Aren't those sons and daughters. Also at risk and to add insult injury tens of thousands of american citizens have been left behind it in afghanistan in the withdrawal according to the washington according to wall street journal an estimated ten thousand fifteen thousand new citizens remained in afghanistan so yes it is tragic. Every single american soldier died in. afghanistan is a tragedy. No one is disputing dance but suggests that afghanistan was a present danger to the current military soldiers. There from february twenty is simply not true and biden. Really closer to speech with i think when idiotic things that he said in his entire speech close with kohl's diplomacy he said quote. We will continue to support the afghan people we will lead before. Diplomacy or international influence in or humanitarian aid will continue to push for regional diplomacy and engaging prevent violence and instability will continue to speak out for the basic rights at the afghan people of women and girls just as we speak all around the world and quote and my question is just how. How can you negotiate with radical barbaric terrorist group that subject it's ethnic religious and gender minorities to brutal torture and murder. How can you negotiate with democratic for cystic regime. That is responsible for thousands of american lives. I mean honestly gonna ask nicely are gonna get on your knees and begged them to treat the afghanistan woman fairly. I mean i don't understand why biden continues to believe that's diplomacy instead of for actually using military forces is the correct way to go and this brings us back to. What was this for honestly at the end of the day with withdrawn. Us military forces from afghanistan he effectively reversed two decades of foreign policy and the initial mission of counter terrorism and preventing a staging ground for al-qaeda according to the pentagon united states government has been eighty three billion dollars in bolstering the afghanistan government and which is effectively gone to waste. I mean we spend easily billion dollars to bolster an afghan military but the afghan military is so reliance on the american forces to to help them to secure them. But when the american forces are removed from the afghan military to aid them than the billion dollar investment goes down the drain and now according to you defense and state department officials six billion dollars in military equipment including eight hundred fifty mine-resistant ambushed protected vehicles were abandoned in withdrawal which six billion dollars in. Us military equipment is now in the hands of taliban and other terrorist organizations additionally chairman of the joint chiefs of staff mark milley addressed congressional leaders and said that they will move the terrorist threats in afghanistan from medium according to axios which meant that. Obviously you're going to see a rise in terrorism and afghanistan and now that the taliban effectively controls its governments and to add insult injury the inside reports that taliban militants released thousands of prisoners from afghan prisons with links to islamic jihadist groups and al qaeda. So what has changed in the past two decades. We've tried to counter terrorism. We tried to decrease the the influence of kind of effectively imprisoning or killing al qaeda militants. We tried to decrease the the power of the taliban and we tried to effectively counteract attacks by the islamic jihadist groups. But it seems to me after this withdrawal after the dust settled what is going to be. The state of afghanistan will be similar to the state of afghanistan when we first invaded and his brings me to a new york times article which discussed heavier mackey. Who was a former first class army. Special forces soldier with several afghanistan deployments and will shot twice and he said in an interview with the new york times quote. I sacrificed a lot. I saw death every day every year. And the guys. I soaked with new would probably come to an end like this. But the chaos and made his andre after everything we gave. I just wish that had been away to leave. With honor and quote for people like mackey. There is a question that rang in numerous veterans. What was it for the situation. Afghanistan has become similar to america. I evaded two decades ago. All the bloodshed in lives lost in pursuit of counter-terrorism only define the terrorism revitalize. This president has trade the continuing efforts of veterans and committed a damaging dereliction of duty as commander in chief of the armed forces is devastating. What is happening in afghanistan and we can only hope citizens in afghanistan. Remain safe in this critical juncture. All right before we signed off. I like to extend a special.

"You've ever bought anything on the internet you know how important reviews can be. They tell us if a product is good if it works as advertised. If it's worth the money your about to spend on it.

Nicole new a nicole. Hi you've reported on. The economy of fake amazon reviews before. Tell us briefly. Why do some sellers do. This reviews are incredibly important. To sales and so sellers often Try to incentivize customers to leave very positive reviews.

And as in a the group most vulnerable to covid and still a pretty low vaccination rates. I mean scary times to have people coming in from all over especially a lot of countries that also have pretty low vaccination rates Yeah bad news. But i guess to answer the question. Where does the money go. I mean if you believe. The international olympic committee they say. Ten percent goes to operations at employee salaries and benefits and that the other ninety percent goes to the games and athlete developments development. That's like scholarships and training facilities and all those things. I have skepticism in my voice because decades of corruption scandals with the olympic committees. And it's unregulated. It's its own thing not accountable to anybody. So yeah

The White House says he'll speak in Philadelphia on Tuesday. The announcement comes as a Republican state lawmaker and staunch supporter of former president Trump attempts to launch what's being called a forensic investigation into the 2020 election. The president is also taking aim at Big Tech and Big Pharma. On Friday, he signed a sweeping executive order that cracks down on anti competitive practices and corporate consolidation. Rather than competing for consumers. They are consuming their competitors rather than competing for workers. They're finding ways to gain the upper hand on labor. Business and trade groups were quick to express opposition, arguing the order would stifle economic growth just as the economy is recovering from the coronavirus pandemic, another guilty plea linked to that college admissions bribery scandal.

Business Reputation Hackers Secrets With Objection Co. Founder Curtis Boyd
"Talk to me about some of the reputation. Hackers secrets our people building managing and monitoring their reputation. There's kind of two angles at this reputation hacker stuff the first is for building reputations positively even though all synthetic and fake at the end of the day it's positive businesses essentially saying. Hey i'm having a hard time. Getting my customers write reviews normally s because of the lack of intention about providing an amazing experience honestly like businesses. Who are really shelling out. Amazing experiences have no problem generating tons of reviews so for those companies who just don't wanna muster the reputation. Fortitude really are being intentional about providing amazing customer experience. They'd rather spend a few hundred bucks online and go buy some reviews and compete in the marketplace unfortunately more and more people who sell fake reviews. They're starting the sell one-star reviews for competitors. So when you place in order for twenty or thirty positive five star reviews. They're gonna start saying. Hey how about one or two or three negative one star reviews for your competitors in your local market on. We add that to the menu and they found out that they could actually charge a lot more for it so they only charge ten to fifteen bucks for a fake google review since i left. Check yesterday on twenty different sites. They're charging fifty to one hundred dollars for a one star review for your competitors because that's the equivalent of five negative reviews right if when you give it one star. You're taken off a star from four other reviews and anything under five stars looks bad. It's actually eleven to one. So for every one star review get e need eleven. Good wants to mitigate that damage all right so the bad guys the guys that are selling the reviews the synthetic content creators. they're charging a premium to help. You denigrated your competition. That's one secret a dirty one. Also not very good for karma. What are some of the other reputation. Secrets reputation hacker secrets. Well there's a lot of clicking going on just as you said like in podcast yesterday like you can enhance your rating by getting downloads. Because that shows engagement that shows interest the same thing is happening and local listings where people will sell packages that include like synthetic clicks and synthetic traffic to try and drive more engagement on even listing sites like google to try to push people up and it's more benign than fake reviews itself. But it's still interesting to see people offering these tertiary services to try and manipulate these search engines in their algorithms to say. Hey these guys are more relevant and these guys are maybe a better fit for what you're searching

We're going to settle on a poll question here, McLovin. Well, I want your opinion. I asked who's coming out of the West. Do you have a favorite who's coming out of the East? The Nets the boxes Sixers or the Hawks? Well, I said the box at the start of the playoffs, so I'll stay with that, even though I don't know what to expect from them. But I'll say bucks because that's who I went with the start. In the West. I thought the Lakers would come out. But, uh, if not, I thought the Utah Jazz. We're going to be the team to beat, so I'll stay with Utah right now. But what we've seen with the Phoenix Suns. I'd be hard pressed to go against them. I know the Clippers are the X factor, but you know, it's just a big question, Mark. I just I don't know what to expect there. Wouldn't want to bet on him. But it's one of those that you bet against them. And then they prove you wrong. You have to really good players. I just don't know. If they're going to. I don't know if Paul George is going to be a really good player, Great player consistently. I know co I will and then I don't know about the role players. I just have no idea at all. Right, Uh, let's see 8773. Dp show email address. Dp dan patrick dot com one of the great nicknames in NBA history, He's three D. Dennis Scott, one of the great Deep shooters in NBA history, part of Turner Sports NBA analyst. Who? Who gave you that nickname? Three D. Uh, down in Orlando. Paul Porter, P a announcer. Uh, we're playing against the San Antonio Spurs in the preseason game. I came down here. The three in the corner. He said. Great Scott. Well, that's what they called me at Georgia Tech and I came down and get hit another three made, said Dennis Ca. And then I made three threes. And I think in a minute in the head, he goes. Wait a minute. Three d d. I kind of looked over and I said, I like that. The rest is history. But when you miss those shots in the game, did you ever get somebody to say Oh yeah. Three D. Yeah, Of course. You hit you get that from a few fans on the road, and you love it. But But But then you've been known me a long time. All of us great shoes that are mindset. He missed two or three. We always believe the next one's going in. All right, Let's look at some of this action here. How much pressure is on Kevin Durant now given Kyra Rees availability and no James Harden. Would love his pressure. I don't know if it's desperation because we all know now, if you're not healthy in the playoffs, you don't have your best players. It's hard to beat people and Durant. We know how he wears his emotions on his sleeve. So he's gonna try to do everything possible to try to carry this team, which I think you need to take a step back and empower his teammates around him with leadership and say, Hey, guys. I'm not gonna try to get 60. Yes, maybe 40, but I need to get 10 15 assists like James Harden does get you guys involved. Let's play good team defense. And maybe we can hold on to carry or Jane target healthy. What do you think of the Bucks Defensive strategy. Are they going over the top with their physicality here? No, they're not. You have to take offensive players out of their comfort zone. We know Kyra reads a great player. We know James Harden your great play. We know Katie is one of the best scores. We ever see it. But you have to be physical with them and take them out of their comfort zone and take them and make them do. Things are not used to. Kevin Durant is not used to a guy named B. J. Tucker just all in his face. He smaller but he's stronger and that's the physicality. You're talking about Van. How do they let Kevin Durant's bodyguard on the court? I think the whole situation with the fans personal security. They're not on the same page, man. I don't mind players have an ex security. They deserve it. I don't mind arenas beefing up ex security for the playoffs. But we all have to be on the same page. You know who is who come to find out? Some people didn't know that. That was the red security with that James Harden security. We didn't know who it was. This knows that guy that was dressed the real big trying to do the right thing, But he didn't. I'm glad you go overboard. Did you ever have an incident like that? Where somebody is on the floor, And you don't know who it is. And why they're on the floor. It was one time in Phoenix because you're obviously playing with shot everywhere we went, some crazy would happen. And then just you know this guy around Fish Shack shack. I love you. And of course, Security said, get out of here. Check was crazy. The the stories I hear about shock. Young shock at practice. Like he would he would run out with just his shoes on is that Is that true? Just his shoes in his birthday suit? Yeah. You're not going to take a charge from him. No. You feel like, uh, I'm not taking the charge your birthday. Oh, what a goofball. Um, should would you have tossed the Joker? Would have not a toss the Joker. I understand the rules. I understand what Adam Silver and the brain trust is trying to do is to keep the game calm. But we know that Joker was not trying to aim for camp face. We know he was trying to a hard foul if he gets the ball against the steel where you were yelling. Oh, my God. Great. Steal about the Joker. He's trying to get back in the ballgame. Unfortunate situation. I don't want fans to put a you know a smear over his MVP season off one little small instant that it wasn't that serious in my opinion, Yes, I think it was how it looked, though Dennis and and he was frustrated. You got his coach who's calling out his own team, saying they quit. And I think it's probably the Joker's saying, Let me let me try to make something happen. My point is, you're the M V p. You can't be in a position to all of a sudden I have a hard foul on somebody. You can't risk that, and that's my problem with it. And what I have tossed him. No, but he put himself in a position where he got tossed, and I blame him for that..

"Is better than nothing. Anything is better than nothing or so. The story goes but on heater core. Nonsense and gibberish on that one. And don't get me wrong. I totally agree with the sentiment. The intent is give it a try. Have a crack drew do something try anything rather than just do nothing. But when the finished product of your attempt of you're trying turns out to be rubbish. Then don't release it to the world. Don't publish launch it. Because in doing that what you're saying to the world is i'm okay with this. I'm okay with rubbish. I m okay with this sub-standard product and a case in point. Every morning. i walk past the conference lobby of a five star luxury hotel.

But they've used graphics from before they've used the graphics and images that were formatted for a smaller screen. And so what happens now on the biggest green all those images are distorted and out of proportion and somebody has still decided that something is better than nothing better that we put something up there rather than put nothing up there. And i would argue that. That's not correct. They would have been much better off. Turn the screen off.

"Maybe on tiktok but any sort of broad advice you may have for him as his campaign looks to position him and his brand for his third election sometime this year or next year. My advice to all three is is basically the same as see when you're gonna take throw -til and sing too. Which is you. I need to define your accessible voter universe so not the people who always love you and not the people who always hit you with the people who you could persuade to vote for you or you may fail to persuade. That group is all that matters. And you've got to kind of cast the other two cy. You've then got a look at all of that work recommended you do on brand ahead of time and you've got to narrow in on that persuadable audience and say what are they looking for in a brand. And that's that's really what you've got to focus on. When i say what does the public wanted a leader because ultimately that is the public you were playing for. It's a much smaller subset of the population that absolutely everybody can ask clarifying question on that particular. Actually which is. When do you have to lock that. In what people want is that something you can have in real time that you're not saying responding to in terms of what people want. But but how do you lock that in and make a decision that saying okay. I think we've got a good sense of what people want. Is it six months before. Is there a timeline that you kind of lock it in or grapple with that. I'm curious that work never ends. You should be doing network in an ongoing basis watching how your brand evolves and you should be willing to adjust if if that makes sense now obviously the closer you get to an election. The more collateral that's built the more. The platform is constructed. You've got to consider that change costs there but you also need to know that if the if even if it's incredibly difficult for you to do but it's an absolute mandatory because of the way things have changed when you start tracking all of the your brand the reaction to the brand the environment overall the reaction to your opponents. Sometimes you've gotta make that hard pivot at the last minute. It's very uncomfortable but sale. Avi so assuming that you have looked at what people think of. You looked at what people think of. Your opponents looked at the environment overall. Come up with a group of people who you think you can be person four and then you say where do they live. Are they on twitter. Are they on tiktok. Are they getting all of their news from the newspaper. Are they getting all of their news from leaflets. That show up in their mailbox because they couldn't be fucked otherwise the care about politics. Whatever the answer is that's where you are and that's it. It's not hard. It's hard actually to stick to it but it's not hard to conceptualize or do carter same question for you. I i might just add to corey point package all three leaders together. If you've got standard advice top line advice that may apply to all three or then maybe more specific new advice to one or two of them. If you've got that as well corey's question but where does the audience live. Where's the audience. Got to get their information from. That is fantastic. That's and that is the open question for me. I actually don't know the answer to that right now because there seems to be a very huge sub sag segment of the population. That isn't getting their information from sources that we can track at all right like they may answer surveys that they're getting their information from From facebook they're getting their information on television..

We're we're in an environment where y- that's putting a chip on the board but the board is is it relent wheel and you're you're picking a number from one to thirty six and that doesn't always seem very smart. I'm gonna ask you guys some. You know advice for each of the three leaders in a moment. But i want to try to get a few political tactic questions. Out of the way. Stephen carter one of the big questions that i always get when when i have people asking me for advice. If they're running a campaign for a candidate is can staff manage platforms or delete. And i'm curious. The rules have been written on this. But they're flexible right and like in a two thousand and twenty one world. If the account is in the name of the person should they be running it or is it okay for staff to run it. Do you feel like the rules have changed. That's my first question. I wanna post both of you. Yeah i think the rules have changed. I think the rules have changed because of advertising so for example. Facebook facebook especially as an advertising vehicle for campaigns. The the stuff that goes up there. You know there's much less interaction that's not managed by staff. I mean comment comment fields. It's just such a fucking cesspool. No one's no one's really. You have to be part of your little group to get positive stuff. So facebook. I think is managed by staff a lot i think instagram is managed by staff sometimes but the better accounts are managed by the individual. I think twitter is managed by the individual because it is so reactionary and it is so dangerous You definitely don't want to be the staffer who who posts my life. I just hit all the who was that one fucked my life david swann. That was There was a blizzard in edmonton or something. Like that and david. Swann was the leader of the liberals who were the official opposition at the time and his. Ea woke up looked outside the very reasonable reaction of. Oh my god look at this.

"Two about my experiences are much more the former than the latter the the candidate may not even realize that it reflects them a little bit more than they think it does right because sometimes we have our own blind spots there or or more likely and maybe a better way to put it is. You've identified something that they're weakened and the public things weakened and they think they're strong like they are on the wrong side of mount stupid on that particular matter. Right with the dunning kruger effect. So that's been more my experience. I have worked with people either in political context or otherwise. Who are just phenomenal at being what they need to be in the moment. I don't want to pretend like. I've only worked with quite the opposite. I've been very lucky. I've worked with some very smart leaders in my time. But that tends to be more like moments of brilliance that are rooted in an attribute. They actually already have rather than them taking on something. That's not them at all. That's that's not really been my experience. Carter on either of the two sides a candidates rejecting brand you've developed for them or swim lane you've developed for them from a branding perspective or candidates saying sure. I'll take this brand on and surprisingly living up to it or making it. The focal point of there not just persona personality going forward and either of those experiences. Yeah i think that we've had both of those experiences. I mean alison redford is Pretty good example is someone who had a brand built for her that she rejected She absolutely did not want to be the The mother of a young daughter daughter of aging parents premier she wanted to be the premier that said the the the was the international premiere.

She's just got the ability she she's native too technology and she knows how to use it and be athetic on it Whereas an and she's the exception you know how many how many elected representatives in the united states. How many can actually do what she does. One right the same thing with So so trying to emulate someone else is by definition not authentic. You don't ask carter some branding principles. I'm gonna ask you a similar question. But just ed one one additional element to it. What are some twenty twenty one branding principles in your mind..

"Move past. don't give anything back. Don't admit mistake and everything will be fine. So i now ask every question risking pissing off corey but it's literally enjoying little italy at the segments title which is great carter. What should you're seeing these these numbers on board. You're seeing the vaccines come online. What should our friends in the conservative party. Consider doing right now. Step back leave it aside move on. Well no i think they still have to prepare for their election I would move to the economy as soon as people start to feel like. The vaccination issues is Going to be solved. And the and the pandemic is going to be solved We're going to move to needing to address. The high unemployment levels the economic uncertainty of individual families and the overall economy. And i think that those are all things it play really well for the conservatives in fact far better than bitching and moaning about vaccine distribution at same. Not same question to you. But i wanna talk to you about The trudeau government here. Because we've always talked about their issues management risk that they constantly have they take the victory lap before the races even done. There seems to be an element of that. Which is perhaps the reason why i keep bringing this topic up is not necessarily to track vaccine numbers but to track the political promise versus the political reality in this case. It seems like a good news story with one. Vaccine approved a second one perhaps coming online. Any advice you'd have to the trudeau government around their victory lap or how they message around the vaccination schedules and the vaccination timelines going forward knowing that it's probably better news than it looked even based on their their promise. Scheduled for march and september. Don't take a victory lap and if you're the conservatives don't don't let them take a victory lap in fact that's where trudeau is most vulnerable because we are still behind. We are still well back in the list of countries in terms of vaccination rates here..

"I'll just jump in before i let you speak overly long and drawn out. Senseless blathering was literally the premise of the show we began. Yeah and i think we've held consistently so your take i mean he's he nailed it. In fact i didn't i didn't corey. Take the l sat. once this rounding himself up to lawyer is exactly on brown. Brian me to be fair. They absolutely nailed my sentiments about this show so exactly convinced that it's not actually corey. Who's done this misunderstanding. Five source star staff strategy. He chose one start thinking he was actually giving a fight. Thank you got some senses blathering. He wants to interject with god. Thank you know me well enough to know. I would never put two spaces after period. This is that's the only reason. I think it's not him interesting. That's very interesting. I love this level of you know. We started off with the ambition to political podcast last week. We did a tight two minutes on butter this. We're doing some really interest forensic analysis on writing style and pattern here. I really liked this. Carter carter i need to ask you. They have given us one star. What are we giving the review. Oh it's a It's an f. Total fail go. Fuck yourself how this comes out in my mouth. You know like you. Hey i don't come to your workplace and your work. You might make probably like she she or he is probably like been fired from the law firm that they work at all they can do. Is this an old episodes of the strategists back to back to back fuck. You didn't talk to each yourself. Pardon me then you say you listen to three episodes today. I was actually talking to myself. Drunken as jesus christ carter. I give it five stars. I think this is excellent. I always appreciate a good sentence with double spacing. I appreciate that. They've nailed our brand. I just i just think they get it and they get us too bad here. She's not listening anymore. Because i feel like this section. I feel like while the strategy of the podcast in their mind was was low. The execution of what we wanted to do. We're killing and so thank you to all our listeners. Even the ones who who have left us let's move on to our next segment our next segment. Of course the check into piss off corey carter. We are talking about flaxseeds. This is the basic corey said to of course it does boldfaced text messages. He increased the size of his. I message fond just to make sure. I don't even know how you do that but he did. I don't know how he doesn't. He's amazing he's figured out a way. He's a loyal to me. We know we know vaccine here. We go do it. Stephen carter astrazeneca vaccine has been approved here in canada five hundred thousand doses on their way thoughts. Well you guys know that. I've i've been railing on this quite a bit. And the proof will be in the pudding but it looks like the puddings getting made and Looks like vaccinations are on their way. I think the johnson and johnson vaccination is going to common. Now we're getting to the place where people are saying. Which is the best vaccine for me to take and now they say they actually have to message. The one that you can get is the one that you should take. So i think this is. It's all good news. Obviously i'm very interesting in people that are close to getting vaccinated ultimately. I'm now like phase one by the way guys. Because i'm so fucking old so we have that going for me So you know that's good. I mean i'm just really excited..

10 Things Student Pilots Do Wrong
"What's up wally bobby. How are you doing great another week. Another episode we love doing these shows for. Y'all hopefully. You're enjoying them are. We've got a number of new five star reviews on itunes and other platforms. If you're enjoying the show please take time to Write us a review and if we should be doing something different or better don't hesitate to reach out and let us know that as well lots of good questions and ideas for the show coming in also and someone said something about Us covering some of the top mistakes that student pilots make and lo and behold. We found an article. And we're gonna we're gonna borrow this article and talk about our thoughts on some of these things in flight magazine. Which is the texaco flight. Training magazine from the ao pa. Still the one that i get imprint. I much enjoy it. has a lot of good things in it as a relates to flight training. So if you're not a member of the go register you'll get the magazine for free either imprint of electronic but way back in january of two thousand eighteen There was an article written ten things ten mistakes. That student pilots do wrong. And we're going to talk about those while the examiner. I know you see a lot of things that go wrong. let's jump right in. We've we've done some of these topics but we'll we'll go through all ten of them. What's number ten number ten pertains to checklists and lonely appalled. We have done a An episode on the usage It is something that is required to be graded or or evaluated. Rather i should say on a check ride Pretty much on on all the landings. All all the takeoffs and everything down there in in One of the elements that i'm supposed to be looking at as proper use of checklists and You know it's pretty simple. If if you don't use a checklist you're obviously not properly using it. So i see Occasionally on on check. Rides that that applicants. Are you know especially for our landing checklist. They're just using gump's and they're going through it and they're going through their mind. But there's not a checklist anywhere close And that's that's really a bad habit pattern I and i know Maybe a cessna one seventy two especially a fuel injected one where carburetor heat is not Introduced to the the scenario. There's really not a whole lot to do As far as landing. You know as far as Checklist items But it's it's a habit pattern it something that is required and it something expected When you get a job plan a big airplane especially at an airline. Checklists are are used. They're used every time You know. I fly big airplanes and some of our checklists. Only have three items on them. And i have a memorized. But i still pull out the checklist and i look at it and i read it and i i respond to it appropriately so it is a big item. You know you're not gonna fly the same airplane all the time. You may fly. An airplane now has cal flaps. You may be flying. Fuel injected one seventy two. And you're used to that but today you're flying an end model and you've got carburetor so you got carburetor heat to be considered and that's all on the checklist Landing lights Just just everything. That's on the checklist is it's there for for a reason so you know it's something that that We we need to do better with you. And i think as a student pilot when i was training you i did get lulled into this fact that i'm flying saint planes. They don't the school when i was going here. Only had one seventy two. So i was always flying a one. Seventy two all tricycle fixed gear aircraft. You could get lulled into that. But i've flown a lot of different types of aircraft. Now and if i only thought of those items on one seventy two n p models than if i did like you said flu anything else that i could get myself in trouble or hurt pretty quick right so number. Nine on. This list is poor weather. Planning i find that to be something that I find myself chasing people down talking about on a regular basis at the flight. School people learning how to fly. They wanna go. They wanna go And they just i don't. I don't think as much as we talk about it. I still don't think students understand. The dangers of what weather can do to us. And that weather as europe pilot and you fly weather is not necessarily the same three or four miles from here. We can see here. Might not be what. What's going on three or four miles away And it's it's shocking. I think i've told the story of trying to fly to brenham to see my dad. Not that far away didn't do a weather briefing or really understand all about the weather. Pass this airport and get out there and be a wall of clouds just five or ten miles away and have to do you know quote unquote a holding pattern out there for for a thirty minute time. They would burn off but they never burned off. And i wasted a lot of gaffes in a lot of my time Trying to get somewhere. That i could have solved for that. If i would've just looked at the weather

"Liked that environment. Let's talk about hallmarks I believe your first one was the christmas secret and twenty four. Does that sound right. I almost went yes I love that one. That's a good one Twenty fourteen is Like i feel like right as hallmark. Christmas movies were really starting to become a little bit more of a thing. Like two thousand fourteen fifteen. It's starting to rise and now you've been doing them homework for the last few years as well talk about how you got into the world and also what it's like not just as an actor but as someone who maybe watches movies to see hallmark kind of rise when the rest of cable. Tv is declining. Homework's still doing stuff. So what's that like to also watch and be a part of. It's a real testament to the fact that people wanna feel good. They wanna see stories that make them make the warm and I mean such an artist. I love complicated stories. I love Things that are on guard and that he worked to to think of what the story means to you But there's also such a place and me and and so many people where he just wants things simple and sweet we and something that's gonna you know is going to have a happy ending You don't have to work too hard for and Sometimes you need that. It's a balanced diet. Well what what's interesting is that makes a ton of sense To hear you say like that. I- i routinely say that you're the best at this i do. You can go and listen. I know you're huge fan of the podcast and you've listened all the episodes but I routinely say the this and the reason that you're the you're the best data is because you get the bit like you get exactly kind of this perfect Kind of reduction sauce of what the hallmark leading lady is supposed to be. And you you tweak that for each of your characters but you understand the beats of the formula very very well but it strikes. Me in looking at your. I'm debbie. i didn't not a huge one tree hill. Got him watch a lot of one tree hill but this strikes me as such a departure for you from what you were doing before hallmark movies so is it is the fact that even though the stories are simplistic and they're formulaic is. It is the fact that these characters are new to you and your career does that. Give it some sort of refreshment for you as you as you take each one of these roles on. Yeah it's totally. That's the major appeal of it to me is that i did on one tree hill have to do once one character for so long and to be able to now have an avenue can explore these different parts. I can play with comedy you again. And i could play really shy girl or a super bossy busy body or You know i don't know something. Would you call from royal matchmaker. I don't know she was running a business but still clumsy and just like the they wouldn't let me use my jersey accent but she was the most jersey girl but they would allow me to. But i that's the thing is like that's what i look for. When i look for hallmark scripts is. What can i do with this care to. Where i'm an actor and i you know actors. We sort of die without the opportunity to put on all these different costumes in hats and faces so my god. I'm so grateful. Somebody's giving me a chance to to just pick some scripts and find something. Yeah i wanna play a princess. Okay i to play a social media mogul and and the personality types the insecurities and the the personal struggles that go along with people in those positions It's so fun for me so interesting. So thank you for your compliment in noticing the nuances. It's something that i it's. It's everything to me i mean that's that's what i in what i do. It's you're more than welcome the idea. I have to ask you this. We're gonna take five-star. Christmas out of the equation because we will have some more specific questions about that aside from five-star christmas because everybody answers their most recent. What's your favorite. Your personal favorites. Maybe the memory of making it or just how it turned out. Whatever your personal favorite and your personal favorite of all of these that you've made hallmarks specifically you can throw lifetime in there as well. That's fine and it looks like what's poinsettias for christmas. What channel is that on. That was lifetime i would say. My favorites have been noted in christmas with andrew walker. I really love that one. I just thought we found some magic there and we had so much fun. Making it in winnipeg and Royal matchmaker go to romania and show my daughter around romania and filmed in castles and i was wearing ballgowns and it was. It was really fun because at least favourite. You gotta give me least favorite boy. Probably honestly christmas secret because it was my first one and It was before homer had been really booming with christmas movies in before it was an. I think i just i was in such a hard place in my life that that movie. I just had such a hard time with that one. We really felt like money job to me. And i wish. In retrospect that i had the appreciation and but i had gone into that job with just an excitement. Because there's no reason i shouldn't have. I was just like feeling sorry for myself and being stupid but so it was all my fault. That's probably why it was good political. Answer joyce really milwaukee memory serves to that character was like kind of down on her luck to like. It was like the kind of saturday there too. Yeah so kind of a kind of a bummer to do that let's Let's talk about five star. Because i just loved it. It was in both of our. It was your favorite of the year and it was my second favorite of the year behind delivered by christmas. Yeah it's so fun so difference Than a regular homework. Because there's just so much just fun stuff going on. It's very funny. I loved it so talk about the. It's it's very different so talk about. Its from kind of a traditional hallmark and what it was like going into a different storyline line for hallmarks. Different beats altogether beeps usa. Neal was there like any direction. Given from hallmark Upstairs has just like. Hey just have fun. Go be a little bit wackier. Do different stuff talk about that. Yeah so five star. Came to be because i have a good working relationship with brad krivoi. Who is a was our producer and he sent me the script and he said what he thinks..
