Why Did Meghan McCain Block Todd Starnes on Twitter?
"Chad McCain was a conservative. How dare you? Oh, really? Well, why would he hire a leftist like Steve Schmidt to run his campaign? Steve Steve Schmidt, the founding member of The Lincoln Project, a former McCain campaign manager. Also, a political analyst for MSD and C? That's exhibit a let's talk about exhibit B Nicole Wallace. A former senior campaign adviser, she was the one who handled Sarah Palin. She was the one responsible for literally bludgeoning Palin in the back with a political knife. And what is she doing now? She's one of the lady host on MSD and C. But the real reason she blocked me is because you see, we have a mind like a steel trap. Here at the Todd stern's radio program, ladies. So we don't forget anything here. And that's why she blocked me. You see, misses Dominic, Meghan McCain. Misses Dominick, she blocked me because I reminded the nation about her daddy's most egregious sin. Would he betrayed every single one of us. He had the power in his hands to kill ObamaCare. And while the cameras were rolling on C-SPAN, what did he do? He looked up at that C-SPAN camera, and he put his, he put his hand in the air. With his thumb exposed, and then he did the big thumbs down. A big blank you to America. That's what he did. All I was doing was asking misses Dominic to explain her daddy's political strategy. But you see, this is what the establishment thinks about all of us. You vote for Donald Trump, you're an irredeemable deplorable. You vote for Donald Trump, you're a Neanderthal.

Pastor Michael Youssef on the Rise of Misled Churches
"Folks, welcome back. I'm talking to my friend pastor Michael youssef. He's the author of a new book never give up holding fast to biblical truth in times of danger and despair. Michael, we're talking about a number of categories of people. I mean, look, there are some people that are flat out insane and we're not really talking to those people. But we see people that have gone wrong. They've made a mistake and they've decided in some sense to compromise to make peace with the spirit of the age, as though that were possible, we know that's not possible. So some people are assiduously avoiding politics. Again, as though that you could possibly preach the gospel and avoid politics, it's preposterous and they're misleading millions, but they're also some who are genuinely going woke in major churches around America. It's even more horrifying. I know that our friend Solomon password mcclain Bible church, whatever left in 2017, and that suddenly they have a pasture that's taking them in a different direction. There are people who come to these pews. They have no idea that suddenly things have changed and they're being misled. It's genuinely horrifying. Sure. In this case, actually 40% of the congregation walked out and left. According to their statistics and their numbers, their reports. It's all documented in my book. 40%, some of them are one of the founding members back in the 60s and they wanted to have a Bible believing church and non Solomon preached the gospel without comparable. Compromise for years and even the current pastor who initially had a zeal formation, but all of a sudden his zeal for mission and evangelism almost took him the way of rob bell, who says, oh, hell is stopping people from coming to Christ. So let's say there is no help. Well, what are you going to save people from? And you're going to save them too. And as soon as we just want to talk about the love of Christ, well, for how long for this life alone, Christ left heaven came to earth, died on a cross, so that he may save us from hell and take us to heaven. Of course, you make our life meaningful and so many blessings in this life, but this just the icing on the cake, the very reason why Jesus said he came from heaven to save sinners. And if we ever give up on this, we have given up on the Christian faith
Lewis and Como: 2 Christian Apologists in the Heart of Academia
"Folks, I continue my conversation with James como, COO, professor emeritus of rhetoric and public communication, founding member of the New York C. S. Lewis society, his books include many essays, long and short fiction, poetry, mystical peril ander, which I'm holding in my hand is his 5th book on C. S. Lewis, what does that tell you? It tells you that there are four other books on C. S. Lewis. One is called C. S. Lewis at the breakfast table. One is called branches to heaven, one is called why I believe in Narnia, and then more recently C. S. Lewis a very short introduction. So you were just saying that in the 60s, you read this Jeffrey Hart article in national review, and you bump into C. S. Lewis, but you bump into him, he was professionally an academic who wrote literary criticism. So this is not the popular Lewis that we know the author of all these popular books. No. But what struck me in Hart's article, was that this man is at the Pinnacle of his profession. He is the leading medievalist. In English literature, undisputably that. Correct. And a Christian apologist at the same time. Right there in the heart of academia. That's where I am. And I'm a believing Christian in the heart of an unbelieving, very hostile academia. I have to find out more about this guy. Which he struck me and has always struck me as a very, very brave man, which of course he was in World War I. You know, he saw combat in the trenches in World War I. But very brave. He takes on the hardest questions with the hardest audiences. Debate anybody, right? Route the field. And yet is this most respected English

And why she felt the way she felt and why she played the witch. I mean, we all shared things, and we were all helpful to one another. But because you have a different obviously perspective and you different dynamics here with players really having their own team, you know, they don't share at all. And I'm not saying all of them, there may be some that do, but we're not that privy to it because we're not really that close to the players. You know, that I kind of always complain about this to the WTA that as the original 9 as the founders of the tour, we should be able to go everywhere and anywhere, just like the NFL players can step put in the locker room or on the field and feel that they're a part of it. They've been a part of it. We don't feel that way. Certainly, let me speak for myself. I do not. And we know that, hey, locker room sacred. Would I go in there if somebody of today's are in there? No. Would I go in there later on when everybody's gone? Yes. You know, because we felt the same way. We've been there. So these kind of restrictions I hate. You can only do this. You can we should be able to go anywhere everywhere anytime, anywhere. Period. Well, let me ask you this, because you see a lot of girls on tour now struggling, whether it be emotionally, struggling with the balance on maybe they got married, and a baby, whatever, having to come back. Do you feel like there is this sort of gap, right? So we've got the original 9 and I'll let you all did for the game, right? If you think about now, somebody has 18 years old on tour. Who was born in 2004. You may not have may not be as connected to what you all did in 1977. Because it's been 30 years, they've won 30 years later. Because some of the same struggles with the player council with equal prize money with the coal gender tournaments and how sometimes the girls get a lower level hotel than the guys in Europe, right?.

I think I need to do this. I need to do that and finally, as you get older, you know, you decide to say that, you know, everything, right? You know, best. But I think once I started traveling and, you know, when I was 16, 17 and of course, you know, the game grew. I grew on not necessarily in size, but certainly. Yeah, I grew in knowing a lot more, but he gave me basically my strokes and, you know, all the things that, you know, the time that parents give kids, I mean, you know, there's so much slopping them all over to the tournaments. I work with some kids a couple kids now and you know, I know how it feels when you're getting up early and taking them to the tournament and God knows what, you have to hang out all day long and stop. So, you know, you got to have a parent like that who's willing to put in the time, so, you know, later on, we do thank them, you know, in ways of wanting to be the best. And of course, when I started to play, I really felt I could be. Now, you know, it's funny. So you talk about the time that your dad invested slept in you around.

He's a frequent speaker on critical issues facing medicare and medicaid programs. In in twenty eleven hank address the managed medicaid congress about principles for structuring effective long-term care programs as well as the medicare market innovations conference about opportunities for strengthening up plans. Five star quality rating is reviews on some of the challenges facing the healthcare industry were published earlier this year in payers and providers. So as you can imagine. He is a wealth of knowledge in this space hank so privileged to have you here with us. Thanks for joining now. It's my honor. Thank you very much forever me absolutely now you know. Is there anything that i left out of that bio you've done so much and i know that like we could probably have a five hour long. Podcast talking about that but anything you want to add. I don't think so salty. The opportunities that i have been fortunate to have especially recently is we kinda shifted in the early years of our firm you would have known all of our clients. They were national names. They were large healthcare providers systems moving into the healthcare health plan space in the last four years probably would have heard of almost none of our clients as we are moving rapidly into the venture capital and private equity market says. They are launching into healthcare. So it's a very interesting dynamic. Kind of change is fascinating and interesting and so from knowing all of them to not knowing all of them the markets big and it's dynamic soli is yeah and it's shifting the way you know. The players are shifting from where the dollars are coming from. And who's playing so. I'm very intrigued with your perspective. So hank what what would you say is what moves you. Why did you pick healthcare healthcare. Probably picked me almost by serendipity. But i've loved the work i have grown up in business as a developer. I've started health plans for the last thirty years and i just absolutely lucked into the healthcare space. At a time when it was morphing from sort of a fee for service model to more of a manager model i had the opportunity back then to be part of the strategic leadership of a couple of plans thinking about how healthcare had to change in order for us to improve quality for members to obtain some real deficiencies in the way. We ran our business so it really found me. I didn't find it nice. Well that's fantastic hank and You know what it found you and you answered the call and you've done a lot of great things so talk to us about the work that you're doing at strategic health group. What exactly you guys do in. How are you offering value to the healthcare ecosystem. That's an interesting question. We start from the framework that we are healthcare consumers first before we are advisers and so we take our knowledge of the infrastructure of the ecosystem and look crew ways to find new solutions to higher quality to more member engagement meeting their particular needs finding new solutions to some of the challenges of healthcare one of the ways. I think we bring significant value to to this is that we are not afraid. Even though we we've grown up in the healthcare system unafraid to challenge some of the status club when not afraid to look at new tech solutions. I've always been. I think regarded as a somewhat of a risk taker. I'd like to think it was as an intelligent risk taker. Just risk for risk sake but thinking through how we can challenge the norms and improve the system for those patients for those members who require healthcare services particularly those who are the most vulnerable. Some of our long-term care patients those with severe chronic illnesses. This so much more that we can do. And i think we help challenge some of those part of the way we've done this. We've started a dozen health plans in the last ten years and match of the work with the plans who were starting out. As ben round new people who are coming to the market with new ideas they are challenging conventional wisdom they are challenging what we have always thought of as healthcare infrastructure and how to approach it. And i think we're able to help them. As strategic advisors to implement and focus on some markets where they can expand those concepts into the marketplace. That's very interesting. You know you guys have have started many health plans so doing this. You're very familiar with the operations with the laborer with the markets. What would you say makes what you do different. And maybe better than what's available today. There's a ton of you know agencies out there that wanna help. So what is it that you would say is the difference maker of what you guys offer one of the things that i think that is most important is we bring only individuals to the table who have had cease. We'd experience so everybody on our team has been a member of the cease week. Ceo president chief medical officer chief compliance officer. So that's the level of talent that we're bringing in. I'm not trying to downgrade those organizations. Some really good consulting firms around the country but many of them during in untested unexperienced individuals to the table. And they're helping to learn not very bright but they haven't had the sort of the scars of mistakes and we have certainly made our share over the years as executives and our goal is to make sure that our clients don't make the same mistakes. It's a big difference maker. If you've been there and done that you likely have the scars to show for it and are able to help you know if somebody with an mba somewhere. That hasn't been in that seat. They likely can't tell you those little intricacies those those distinctions that your team probably has right even have to make tough decisions as a member of that cease week whether it's a clinical decision or a business decision strategy. And unless you've been there and done that it's tough to always assume that you know what you learn in a textbook is going to work in the real world i again. I'm not trying to downgrade or disrespect what those individuals bring to the table but for an organization who wants tested leadership. I think that's the key difference for us. Yeah and it makes a difference if you're going to do something. Learn from the best learn from the people that have been there done that. So i'm really curious. Thank you know you had this at the very beginning scan health plan a near death experience and you guys turn it around. I mean give me the high level on that because like i'm just really curious about what you believe was the problem and then how you put it together to to make it skyrocket so the situation at the time that a new leadership team came in and david schmidt was the new. Ceo who came in the organization was under voluntary supervision with the state regulatory authorities. It had i think they had taken their high audible in terms of managing the risk that they were taking that said dave brought in a completely mostly new leadership team..

I've never heard anybody play like that guy and I've never heard anybody sing that way, Robbie said. Do you guys have a tape? So I sent him a reel to reel and he called back. He said. Awesome.

right right and you you're going to church digitally and warm just kind of home schooling the kids again sort of going to church is the way is a new one for me that that one took a little bit getting used to air first digital further last Monday became the art there my youngest started kind of work at home stuff tomorrow and I I mean I know that their parents out there that haven't heard talking about your kid clean out the garage I know their parents out there that are doing stuff with their kids on and off I mean we're we don't even know what it is right now the scheduled all the front desk but raising it's quite yeah it is yeah we've it's not we've gone from from Tonya driving the kids around to you know play practice and and this the you know school and that they advance in all the time it's like she was a shuttle service and knitted to nothing like the kids are home and it's like well the who is this creature in the other room I I don't recognize them they're my children it's weird how fast things stopped thank god and I kind of I like that the home of my older went off to college for the evening our freshman year what the all the fun all right so that was that was awful and I'm actually the phone the phone very bad but I'm actually kind of grateful for the time I feel like you know we get a little bit of extra time because I'm sure the world going to ship back into high gear Europe then but I'm you know I'm happy that we can have the gold I just I am with all of them awfulness that happening when the virus and everything I just I feel like we're supposed to kind of take the time together and we are a family and and do stuff and we play every play all kinds of stuff with the games and yeah I do my stuff and then we have the first nine we play hide and go seek acceptance a new version is called hide hi okay and then you're going to find us nope just go hide so your your your book is about grace which is seems really timely especially with there's there's absolutely no grace extended to people anymore there's no grace especially extended to this president everything he does he's ahead of the rest of the world and he'll get bashed for it and then you know when Europe today they're making all kinds of announcements that Europe is closing all of the borders and they're canceling all flights and you can't if you're you're being called home late that's what he did and he was called all kinds of names for it now with the rest the world is doing it they're brilliant they're all brilliant we should be more like them well we work last week yeah what we gotta talk to me a little bit about grace in this in this time period well I and I and and I think that's right it's not just great that that has nothing at all so the ability for society to for gas there is a cancellation of forgiveness and an outright refusal of redemption and I think I mean that I can't believe that work were even doing there during a pandemic I mean that seems to me that that would be the time that you would exhibit I'm afraid your fellow man that you would try to do the best you could to be a good steward and instead of a very plain politics and they're really worried about what communist China as it relates to their responsibility in writing a pandemic but it isn't it I hate when I started writing this book and there were a couple of things that contributed to the idea of it the person was the way my kids reacted to the parkland town hall and the second thing was a norm macdonald interview because he I absolute median of all time I think he's one of the smart media Dr Eric all and he had made a good point that you wouldn't be spending more than bars he was saying okay she did something wrong and she apologized and she can try and where is the forgiveness isn't that kind of how the closing the company wants to apologize anymore because nobody wants to forgive anybody I thought that's exactly right and that it contributes to the whole of tribal invasion because it's not about persuading people to vote early destroying then it's more of an act politics now is more of an exercise in ego then it is actually trying to move the ball down the field and advocate for one issue and sell back that's how the book started and I I get it all they talk about the death of you want how political conversation is incredibly stupid now and of course they're being looked at that and rage mob chapter and I get into the media's role as well so if there there's a lot in it and I usually I didn't want to write it but I ended up writing I if it was something that I think is that I came up with and I regretted it like you know two thirds of the way and by all the promises being tested and I was mad about it I didn't want to write I will I will I actually and a couple of different points consider Jack burning it all down and I wanted to write a ridiculous hello all and shoot it all into the stratosphere and just let the fire burn burning bridges by my path that's all I wanted to go we need a lot at the rate this book all the more yeah it's really it's really hard because you all you want to do is pay people back really all really yeah you give me the thought that was funny I thought that was funny mmhm now you're sitting in a hot speed off the hot seat look what's coming your way it you just want to pay people back but it's not good when you do now you know that as well as I do how great for people can be and how relentlessly gracefully they can be and I I you know and I think that that it can it's a choice I mean to give grace the someone and I think that there are some people who are like minded that think it is I thank them or that it is complicity or it is just you're just going to go along with it you're going to accept that that's not a great this operation simply on merit I know and the people who deserve it the least and in fact when you really need to take it and again tomorrow and but it is a choice and it's not my first choice I mean for crying out loud you know me I mean come on let's not not no no no this is not anybody's first choice right I mean come on it is but it's really not anybody's first choice it is I mean it goes against what I would call the natural man the natural man defends himself the natural man swings back you swing at me my instinct is to swing harder and and you know the natural man is an enemy of his enemy is an enemy of god my we are supposed to rise above that animal exactly where and and and that's it really and some of the way that that that it's a form of what and I have to say that I feel that in terms of First Lady because you know I've asked myself too especially as my kids started getting older my older son now wanted on a constitutional law he did the baking he get a hall all over it and I was actually kind of discouraging him from five hundred and a great parenting but I did not want him to think that yeah the only acceptable way to respond or handle discussion in the country and in culture wise you have to be so it'll work so hard for and be completely emotionless and I believe that any kind of empathy or any kind of you know anything if the volatility graces in a vulnerability and I you know I really was was very cognizant of that and I I I realize if if I get anything I need to model it for him better than expected the political culture care because that's not what happened so at least you know if you see me modeling it for and then you know maybe that's at least something that the FIFA point that you know that and then I'll be happy but I I really think this is a very hard and I know that him and his friends is that really a lot operating for them than it was for me when I was their age and I I really wanted them to have that I know that was highly important for so let's go back in and talk a little bit about the the media and the way they're and doing all of this what do you see coming you know we're we're sitting in a time where the media has so discredited themselves that because everything has been a way to get Donald Trump on our side of the aisle or or less willing to accept that corona virus is a big deal and it it is a big deal it's not that we're all gonna die it's just that we all have to do what we're all supposed to do and you know there was an article where was it maybe in the new York times a camera where it was it was in a lefty paper in it and it was talking about how there will be more conservatives that die from this than liberals don't know if that's true or any way to even prove that however their point was because liberals are taking this seriously but I think this is because of the press if the roles were reversed the exact same thing would be happening in the opposite yeah do you agree or disagree I think that's something that I mean I I think that they have made it the waiter came over and over and then I have I'm not surprised that they've done it by I don't know that and I'm at the point where I don't think I could ever it universally speaking I don't think I could ever recover my respect for so many and that industry I think it's I think it's it's just something that the level of all time and the way that they have banned so gleefully warning and then a medium between what China is is in fifteen they're they're trying to they're engaging in a propaganda war we have people in the media that are actually in them with that I thought headline thank you for mac yeah and they were they were going after the United States Senate no they they will help organizations without calling it the Chinese qualifier Republic of pulling back the Republicans including a pregnant with me yeah well you know what China also bans the World Health Organization over a barrel and that the date for Taiwan from international meetings about a pandemic and and they also had the World Health Organization praising and just at the end of January for everything that they've done really essentially the help desk so I'm really not going to take in the tourism authority on that and it's insane to me there are cracks you should just be watching out for the best interest of the voter are instead actually walking up at the entrance of communist China so it's like about the full the full formalization has happened now I mean what we there there there at where there were there but they've been having this entire time elated and handle it is that you're responsible and cost people to even question the question that they should have to work that it calls into question the recommendations and the guideline and back that's absolutely a responsible you're responsible reporting can get people all Dana thank you so much for being who you are and taking

did not want him to think that yeah the only acceptable way to respond or handle discussion in the country and in culture wise you have to be settled what so hardcore and be completely emotionless and I believe that any kind of pain or any kind of you know anything if the volatility greater than a vulnerability and I you know I really was was very cognizant of that and he I I realized if I get anything I need to model for him rather than expecting the political culture care because that's never happened at least you know every single model in that form and you know maybe definitely something that the seed planted you know that and then I'll be happy so I I I really hit the driver hard and I know that him and his friends is that really a lot operating for them than it was for me when I was their age and I I really wanted them to have that I know that was really important for so let's go back in and talk a little bit about the the media and the way they're sanderling all of this what do you see coming you know we're we're sitting in a time where the media has so discredited themselves that because everything has been a way to get Donald Trump on our side of the aisle R. or less I'm willing to accept that corona virus is a big deal and it it is a big deal it's not that we're all gonna die it's just that we all have to do what we're all supposed to do and you know there was an article where was it maybe in the New York times I can't remember what it was it was in a lefty paper in it and it was talking about how there will be more conservatives that die from this than liberals don't know if that's true or any way to even prove that however their point was because liberals are taking this seriously but I think this is because of the press if the roles were reversed the exact same thing would be happening in the opposite yeah I agree or disagree I think that's something that I I think that they have made it the way that they are handled and then I had I'm not surprised that they've done it by I don't know that I'm at the point where I don't think I could ever it universally speaking I don't think I ever will cover my respect for so many and that industry I think it's I think it's it's just something that the level of all time and the way that they have been so gleefully pointing at the intermediate between what China is in fifteen they're they're trying to they're engaging in a propaganda war we have people in the media that are actually assisting them with that I thought headline thank you for mac yeah and they were they were going after the United States Senate no they they will help organizations without calling it the tiny core buyer Republic of pulling back the Republicans including the president Whitney yeah well you know what China also bans the World Health Organization over a barrel and the date for Taiwan from international meetings about economics and and they also had the World Health Organization parading and just at the end of January for everything that they've done really especially the help desk though I'm really not going to take and that the source of the forty on that and it can change any that are cracked you should just be watching out for the best interest of the voter are instead actually walking up at the entrance of communist China so it's like the the the full the full formalization has happened now I mean what they're they're at we're there we're there but they've been having this entire time elated and handle it is that you're responsible and it cost people to even question the question that they should have to work that it calls into question the recommendations and the guideline and back that's absolutely a responsible you're responsible according to get people all Dana
