Graham Krizek Talks Voltage, Lightning and His Crypto Journey

"All right, Graham, welcome to the breakdown, sir. How are you doing? Great, how are you doing? Good. I'm very excited to have you here. We were talking just a little bit about how lightning is this fascinating thing because even for a lot of bitcoiners who sort of have a vague broad kind of ideas about what lightning is or why it's exciting. They're not necessarily kind of clued into what's going on in the moment. And so I thought it'd be really fun to have you on to talk with about what you're doing and also kind of lightning more broadly, but let's start by just introducing you so how did you get into the Bitcoin space? How did you get into lightning and then what is voltage and what are you working on? Yeah, for sure. It sounds sounds great. I'd love to chat about that stuff. So my name's Graham cruise, I'm founder and CEO of voltage. What voltage is is where a Bitcoin infrastructure provider. So we help companies. They want to adopt Bitcoin in their technology or what they're doing. And then we also are very focused on the lightning network side of things. So when people are trying to incorporate the lighting network into whatever they're building application services exchanges, whatever it is, we really help them understand the technology, teach them how to use it, and then also provide tools and services to make that integration and that adoption, much easier, faster than having to start from scratch over and over again. You know, my Bitcoin journey started about 2012 and I've just worked kind of in the traditional infrastructure space for since then, or since about the same time, and then one day I just really realized there's this big gap in infrastructure robust infrastructure services for Bitcoin and lightning. You know, I just took it upon myself to kind of create voltage as a project and then it just kind of evolved from there and a company and just that snowball that never stopped. Amazing. One was voltage founded. We launched in October of 2020, so almost two years ago,

What Should Be the Right's Top Issue? Larry Elder Weighs In

"No matter whether it's Trump, or it's elder, or it's desantis, or what do you think needs to be that top issue that Republicans are moving forward with? Because there's been a lot of controversy about whether or not we got the messaging rate, I feel like we did. I don't know how you can say that talking about people's pocketbooks and their safety is wrong. But what should it be? Well, it's pocketbook issues, but I do think we underestimated the power of a couple of issues. One abortion. The other one is this phone issue of so called election denied. When roe V wade got overturned, I wasn't terribly concerned about it, although there was a flurry for a while, threat on the part of conservatives, it's going to energize the Democrats. But I thought it was going to go away. I thought it had gone away. The polling suggested that it had, but the exit polling suggested that the polling was wrong. It was the number two issue after the economy and well ahead of crime. And so we got that wrong. And I think a lot of Republicans failed to convince people that the reality is all the reversal of growth did is put this issue back to the states where it was for the first nearly 200 years of our republic. What's wrong with that? And I think a lot of Democrats believe that rogue reversal romantic abortion was going to be illegal. And I think it was a bad move on the part of Lindsey Graham to suggest that there's going to be some sort of national legislation to codify restrictions on abortion. It should not be a federal issue either pro choice or pro life. It should be a statewide issue. And I think that scared a lot of people. Regarding the election denying nonsense, you know, Carrie Lake, I thought Hanley pretty well when she informed her voters that Hillary has been denying elections for 5 years and Stacey Abrams denying elections for two years and Al Gore to this day believes that the Supreme Court put George W. Bush in office Vinny Thompson the chair of the January 6th committee tried to overturn the election first week of January 2005 by claiming that the Ohio debo voting machines have been tampered with, there's no evidence that that my point is for 22 years Democrats have been denying elections. I think a lot of Democrats are unaware of that. The reason I know that is I was in Dallas at an airport just a couple of days ago, Jen, and I'm talking to this moderate self described moderate, professor, and he was talking about how he felt that election denying earth the Republicans on Tuesday. And I told him what I told you about Hillary denying election for 5 years. He said, and I quote, I never heard her do that. I said, professor with all due respect, you are part of the problem that

The Ongoing War Against the ‘Disinformation Police’

"Story is remarkable. Somebody said Charlie, we knew this all along. No, we really didn't actually. We did not know the depth and the complexity and how blatant they are. So look, here's the big takeaway. We created a vast national security bureaucracy. And they're always going to try to justify their existence. So people like Lindsey Graham and senator blumenthal and senator Murphy that kind of uni party defender defense of the national security state, they're always saying, well, you know, terrorists could be around the corner. The problem is, what happens when you have a supply and demand problem with terrorists? Well, then you have to go find new terrorists. If all of a sudden, America doesn't have as many terrorists as you think we do, and ISIS and Al-Qaeda are not as strong as they used to be, but then you've got to go find new terrorists. And those terrorists just happen to be right wingers. So terrorism has faded in the traditional sense. And thanks to left wing politics, we aren't allowed to care about our border, so they've turned on the easiest target. Imaginable. DHS, by the way, should we focus on the invasion of our country 2 million people coming into America? Not worried about whether or not someone is challenging that we send aid to Ukraine or wondering, hey, are we really systemically racist? Policing free speech, monitoring speech, spying on the public and targeting etern internal American dissidents is the new focus of this regime. So the only fix to this is admitting an acknowledging we made a mistake when we passed the Patriot Act, we made a mistake when we put the DHS into power. We need to tear down these organizations quickly because we never needed them in the first place.

Yes, everybody's talking about it except for senator Hassan. He avoids the subject at all costs. You know, yesterday, she precluded New Hampshire journal, Michael Graham from being at a press conference and he is press, they let everybody else in that was going to write positive things about her or in her camp, but not other news outlets. I mean, this is what is being done, hiding the truth from granted status, avoiding the hard facts that Americans and granite staters are hurting in every way, moms and dads making choices about eating and heating, eating less so that kids can eat more, skipping meals so their kids can have three meals, our education system is a complete disaster and she receives the second highest amount of money from the teachers you

What Should We Do About Kevin McCarthy? John Zmirak Weighs In

"You do? I don't know if you know enough about politics. I don't, to know what to suggest. In other words if Kevin McCarthy becomes Speaker of the House, is there anybody who could be a better speaker? Is there a movement to find somebody who's a little bit more of a freedom loving patriot who understands we're facing evil? Either one of my beagles would make a better speaker. I have shoes that would make better speech. But not all my shoes, but several of them. I think probably the Republican Party is run like a sorority. Remember, Bob Dole got to be our presidential candidate because it was his turn. And he waited patiently, and it was his turn. Nobody thought he would win, but it was bob's turn. So bob got to run and got to lose. So I think there needs to be a rebellion within the Republican Party. And they need to purge people like Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy. Ideally, I would like to see them defeated at the polls. I would vote for any Democrat against these people because once a rhino was in office, he never leaves he never leaves. Lindsey Graham will still be senator from South Carolina in 400 years. His mummified body will be will still be holding that sentence. So like a Jeremy bentham. Like Jeremy bentham accept, he will still talk. And he'll still have his head on top of his shoulders. And Lindsay, you have always with you.

"This is just such a huge point in its a shame that so many people miss it. The January 6th was many, many times worse than 9 11, but for a totally different reason. This is where a political party was able to take all our three letter agencies set up all these misdirection, please on January 6th entrapment and a whole bunch of things. And then wine that into all kinds of abilities to go after everybody that was supporting the other political party Trump. All his people that would work for them help them abandon and just think about all these people languishing in the jails and everything with no kind of American justice. No nothing. Listen, this is the greatest attack on our country and damn history. And I'll tell it people are missing it. This is, you can probably understand. I started through.

Can I ask you the complete idiots question as a non medical professional just a PhD in political science Emily? We do not affirm any other psychological issue. If you come in to a medical professional a psychiatrist or a psychologist and you say, I have, I think I'm fat and you weigh 70 pounds or I think I'm Napoleon or anything else that is psychological or psychiatric. We don't affirm that condition. Why are we affirming why are we affirming somebody who says I'm not a boy I'm a girl? That's a great question, Sebastian and the only answer I've come to is that it's a huge industry. It's a two over $2 billion industry and it's projected to increase to over 5 billion by 2030. So usually if something doesn't make sense, you always ask yourself to follow the money.

Have the 'Thatcherites' Died Out? Mike Graham Weighs In

"There enough decent real I would call if I were in the UK now? I call myself a Thatcher ride. At the saturates died out, are they living a good life in the private sector? Are there enough to have the back of the next prime minister if they're a real conservative? Well, do you know the ex Home Secretary, Sue a brave man who basically resigned her job because she wasn't being allowed to run the immigration policy and to stop the illegal migration onto the shores of our country from France. She wasn't allowed to do that so she resigned, the accusations made against Liz truss was that she was a far right leader. I mean, incredible stuff. This was coming from inside the Conservative Party because it is unfortunately has always been driven by the European question. And people have started to say that they want actually to make sure that there is still a relationship with the European Union, which is absolutely a basket case. I mean, inflation in France is worse than it is in the UK, having blacked out in Germany. You know, it's absolutely horrendous over any has never been a better science and lead the European Union. Donald Trump said Germany was too reliant on Russian gas. And so it proved. So we need to get to a return and there's plenty of thatcherites who are voting conservative and they're not getting the conservative government. They're asking for.

She got off the highway, a record 44 days in office, shortest serving prime minister ever, gone, goodbye, Liz truss. What does it all mean? How did it happen?

Our good friend across the Atlantic, the man who speaks truth and common sense on the fastest growing channel there. It is talk TV. It's our good friend. Mike Graham, welcome back to America first. Sebastian, thank you very much. Indeed, well, it's been quite a day. It's been quite a week. It's been quite a 44 days. You might say, as you said, the shortest period ever, some think this has been a remainder plot. There are those in this country who still can't take the fact that Brexit was a success and that we left the European Union. You know, we now have Jeremy hunt, who's had Chancellor, who voted to remain in the EU. Let's trust was a remainer who changed into a brexiter and is now out. Boris Johnson, however, is the big name on everybody's lips tonight because but hang on, hang on, hang on, didn't you just get rid of him, Mike? Yeah. We might be getting him back. It could be the greatest political comeback of all time. You know how he's very much like Donald Trump. They're trying to get him every single step of the way. They are terrified of Boris Johnson coming back because he is the one man who can unite the Tory party who can win an election against the Labor Party and who could actually restore everything for them. Nobody's quite sure if he's going to run, but he's already in the lead in the polls and he's already in the league in the House of Commons as far as MPs is supported.

Why Jason Pye Identifies as a 'Classical Liberal'

"Preface this conversation by saying, you know, Doug, you said a buzzword earlier that I was trying to get a word in, but you mentioned the term classical liberal. And that's largely how I identify my philosophical views these days is classical liberal, which is not modern liberalism, is actually more in tune and more in line with what the founding fathers believe and so I would refer to myself as a classical liberal. We don't have everybody heading to Wikipedia on this. Yes, we are. But which the modern day, the classical liberal and libertarian have been somewhat intertwined. I am not, I am no longer a member of the Libertarian Party. For precisely this reason. And it's because the Libertarian Party does not take itself seriously. And I'll get to just give me one to indulge me for a second here. Okay. There are two very good libertarian candidates who are running. And if I were still a registered voter in Georgia, I would vote for them. And one of those is Chase Oliver, who is the nominee for U.S. Senate. And the other one's Ryan Graham, who's running through lieutenant governor. Both very good guys, both very smart guys who are talking about issues from a classical liberal libertarian perspective that I tend to agree with. Shane hazel should not be in this race. If he had any dignity, he would drop out. And the reason reason for that is, is be precisely the things you said. He's belligerent. He says random stuff. He is not a serious candidate if his goal is to throw this into a runoff, then why are you running? And you're right. It's going to cost taxpayers in Georgia millions of dollars statewide. Because in these counties, some of these small counties who are already facing budget crunches are going to have to find the money to do a runoff and this is fundamentally my issue with libertarian candidates. They don't run to win. And because they can't win. And

Hello, I'm Minnie Driver. Welcome to the mini questions season two. I've always loved priests questionnaire. It was originally a 19th century parlor game where players would ask each other 35 questions aimed at revealing the other player's true nature. It's just the scientific method really in asking different people the same set of questions. You can make observations about which truths appear to be universal. I love this discipline and it made me wonder, what if these questions were just the jumping off point? What greater depths would be revealed if I asked these questions as conversation starters with thought leaders and trailblazers across all these different disciplines. So I adapted Proust questionnaire and I wrote my own 7 questions that I personally think are pertinent to a person's story. They are. When and where were you happiest? What is the quality you like least about yourself? What relationship real or fictionalised defines love for you? What question would you most like answered? What person place or experience has shaped you the most? What would be your last meal? And can you tell me something in your life that's grown out of a personal disaster? And I've gathered a group of really remarkable people, ones that I am honored and humbled to have had the chance to engage with. You may not hear their answers to all 7 of these questions. We've whittled it down to which questions felt closest to their experience or the most surprising or created the most fertile ground to connect. My guest today is the polymorphous wonder that is Graham Norton. Graham is perhaps best known for his chat show the Graham Norton show. For the 8 books he has written for the radio shows he presents in the UK and on and on and on because the thing for me that makes him so known is this extraordinary wit and spirit that just runs through every single thing he does. I can't tell you how many times I've been on his show over the years, but it's quite a few and I will tell you that chapters can really be a bit uphill. But I long to go on his show because I have never laughed so much in my life. After you've listened to this episode of my podcast, please just Google funny race horse names, the Graham Norton show, and you will see me genuinely crying with laughter at the hands of a merciless Graham. It's quite hard to become a national treasure in the UK, but Graham is one, and everyone knows it. I always feel better for having talked to him and this interview right now proved to be no different at all. Where and when were you happiest? I do know this, but I always kind of think I remember when I was a kid, there was a peanuts cartoon. I loved peanuts when I was a kid. But it's kind of weirdly deep for kids. I think it's Charlie Brown and Lucy, maybe talking, trying to balance someone else talking, somebody saying, you know, in every life, one day will be happier than all the other days. On the other little child is going yes. And then the first child goes, what if you've had it? And as a child, you know, that sort of blew me away. Because that's just seemed the saddest thing in the world that if you're 11 and you've had your happiest day, the rest of your life is lived out not as good as that. So I think you've got to live your life assuming your happiest days to come. I think that's very smart. Oh my God, it's so existential peanuts, isn't it? Yeah. That is so deep for a little children's cartoon. And it hit me to my core. That just seemed like meaning of life level of revelation. Happiest day might have happened. The answer to your question is I had a wedding weekend this summer in Ireland. Your wedding. My wedding. Yes, my wedding. We got married already, but we had this weekend. And you know, there were party planners and there was this going to happen. This is going to happen. People were flying in. But of course, then the airports were all messed up, COVID was still around. You know, I picked these party planners basically out of the phonebook. So they're telling me, oh yeah, we'll do this and you're thinking, I hope you do, because I have no idea. Anyway, the weekend could not have gone better. We got amazing weather. The moment I was happiest was with my husband just as the party was drawing to the close, on the Sunday. Where we were surrounded by our friends still, it was a beautiful night, the lights were all in the trees, the music was playing. And it was just, I didn't need to worry about how the whole weekend was going to go anymore. I didn't need to worry about the catering or the performers or the weather or people getting there. In that little, probably 15 minutes at the end. I could just be happy. In that little tail end of all the anxiousness and the planning, I felt supremely content and loved and loving and all those good things. And all the anxiety and the worry actually qualifies and probably has a huge amount to do with how happy

How Church Leaders Aligned With Fauci to Discredit Experts

"Exactly did he do? Because I understand he has a lot of connections with many evangelical leaders some were even within the Southern Baptist convention. Yes, so early this year, I had released a report on all of the evangelical leaders, including people like Christianity today, editor in chief Russell Moore, Billy Graham center, director at stetzer, Tim teller, a lot of other big Rick Warren. Some other big names who had platformed Francis Collins to come on their podcast to do interviews with him to run stories, advocating for him basically saying he's a Christian brother, we need to listen to him and you can go back and find that old report. But that was the first story. And then this week, what popped up was that this organization that Francis Collins founded put out a statement called the love your neighbor get the shot statement. And this went even further because it was essentially a pledge that a variety of Christian leaders, including people like NT rights, very famous theologian, Christian author, Philip yancy, that one breaks my heart, Christianity today, CEO, Timothy dalrymple, some seminary president, veggie tales, creator, Bill Fisher. They all signed this document. And in it, they promised to actively promote accurate scientific information from trustworthy consensus sources and they promise to help counter misinformation and conspiracy theories from non consensus sources.

But it's impossible for any Democrat to answer because Democrats, I would submit, favor, late term abortion, listen to Rafael's answer, Raphael pastor Warnock's answer and tell me if you don't agree with me. Do you believe there should be any limitations on abortion set by the government and you have 60 seconds? I think that the women of this country and the women of this state woke up one summer morning and a corporate protection that they've known for 50 years. Was taken from them by an extremist, Supreme Court. There it is. Where's the non answer? There's the answer that is a no. There's no limitation. They will not say it because we all know what's true. They favor late term abortion. There's no other way to describe this.

"Mickey Mouse, clocks, and you know, like your kids are named like Aladdin and all of a sudden, I'm calling the police, like immediately, like there's something. It's the same thing for rednecks. Look, I love rednecks, but if I go in your home and you've got every bucket of collectible Kentucky fried chicken on your shelf and things like that, I'm calling the police, something's wrong. You know what I mean? I just can't do it. Morgan, your thoughts. Yeah, so I would say in general, I just don't like to support any more bless you Graham. I don't like to support companies that don't like us. They've made it clear that they think differently than us in pretty substantial ways. And so that's one thing. But another part of it, taking the politics out of it, have you guys seen the evaluation of the shows that Nickelodeon and Disney and stuff are putting out for kids? Because I love childhood development and looking into the science of it and children really learn mostly through imitation. And so the behavior of your parents is so important because you then mirror whatever your parents do. So when you see kids swearing and doing like really aggressive stuff, that's unfortunately their home at life. That's what they're seeing at home behind closed doors, and that's why you're seeing these kids act like adults. And that's really sad. But then take that into the kind of bratty snotty behavior, the characters they're seeing on Disney shows. I think it's crazy. I look at those shows. I don't watch them because I don't have kids. I'm 25 and I don't ever see them, but sometimes they pop up on my screen or on my phone and I am shocked by the weirdness of the show in terms of the standard behavior of the main characters. And I'm like, this is not the kind of thing I want my kid who learns through imitation to be seeing and think that that's normal societal behavior. Yeah. It's Halloween. And so, well, it's October. Which makes it Halloween. And so like, you know, I'm a scary movie fan and so the first day of, well, not the first day because we were at freedom of the range, but October 2nd, did you watch Halloween? No, we watched Ernest scared stupid. I haven't seen it. Oh, my God. Is that a new movie? You haven't seen it either? No. Harness has been dead for 20 years. I'm so sorry. Wow, okay. Anyway, we ruined that one for you. I'm sorry. Artist is an hilarious, back in the day where you could have hilarious stuff for kids, right? He's just this idiot that ends up saving the day every time his Ernest scared stupid, Ernest saves Christmas. It's all kind of stuff. We watched Ernest scared stupid. It's just hilarious. And so, but hocus pocus is like a really big kids movie back in the day. And they just had hocus pocus two come out.

You Can Be Tough on Enemies Without Supporting a Proxy War

"Be very clear. You can be very tough on terror and tough on China and tough on our enemies while also thinking and believing that a proxy war against Russia and Ukraine is madness. That it is not in America's best interest that in fact we should be using Russia as a temporary ally in the fight against the Chinese Communist Party. Churchill understood the need and the significance of Russia. It was Churchill, who brokered Stalin to come together with FDR in America against the Nazis. Russia right now could be a trading partner could be an ally, this entire war in Ukraine could have been prevented. It wasn't for Lindsey Graham saying we're going to play offense against the Kremlin. All I should have been on Beijing, we could have used Russia as an energy partner understanding that they are thugs, but guess what? I'm going to say something very controversial here. Vladimir Putin is a lot more, let's just say he's a better person than Joseph Stalin. Vladimir Putin is not a good person, but he's a lot better than Joseph Stalin.

"Has to help when you get an opportunity like riding snap decision, I guess. Yes, snap is definitely a horse that likes to travel. You know, he doesn't he's a gutsy hard. He tries very hard. So when you get stuck into him, you know, he's already giving you a 110%, so he's definitely harsh that likes to sit and travel and jumps a lot better when you're keeping a whole of them, you know, riding with plenty of leg and keep your hands as quiet as possible. He's definitely a horse that likes to do that. Did you ever get an opportunity to ride a horse like snap decision in Europe or that he's the best you've ever been? He's a different type of horse. I've never good harsh that I've had in my career was a formal chaser. I mean, I've only ridden two big winners in the UK when was the either chase, it's a foreign a quarter mile chase with 28 phases in February. It's bartlet ground. I think it took like 9 minutes, you know, and different type of harsh, slow, like I said, portion of the tree mile. My order biggest winner was the summer culprit you talked to, which is one of the biggest jump races in the summertime in the UK and again that's four my one and the horse I won on that was a dropout Joe. He ended up going on to the ancient grand national the following season and again, that was like 25 fences, you know, I never had a horse like snap that, you know, a sharp two mile or two and a quarter mile harder and a traveling jump, you know, but he's a different experience. And for the anticipate question of the day, who is your biggest fan in your career now or growing up or in your career who's been your biggest fan? I don't really want to say because I'm riding against him tomorrow. It's Davey Russell. He's one of those guys, it was just a funny scenario for me where I came to America and kind of forgot about him. I always idolized him always loved him and he's an absolute gentleman as well. He's one of those guys that those interviews says whatever is on his mind, a big controversial, but then when you meet him, he's the exact same person. But I remember idolizing a whole career and then kind of forgetting about him a little bit when it came to America because the style was a little bit different. And then he came to fire hills, and I remember going down to the first hurdle and he was on my insight and just looking across and just kind of getting this flashback of how good was he, you know? And he's definitely a writer. I've always idolized. Yeah, he's one of the great semis so quiet, so patient, that empathetic, unbelievable style when you see you can go through a race watch out and you kind of pick out Davey Russell and judge the race on where he is in the race as far as the pace goes. Yeah, definitely. I mean, look, I've been obviously studying chosen mates form all week and looking at him when he went on and the rehearsal chase and 2020 od runners at two miles owns very, very sharp and to see how much he has in a hard sitting sitting four for 50 last and traveling still 9 or ten coming down the hill and you know, instead of four or 5th jump in a second last, you know, and just a very, very cool rider. He always knows how much he has underneath him. You know, very, very clever guy as well. He's been through a lot through a lot in his career in terms of he had the number one job for gigging town and he lost it and, you know, he didn't. He didn't show the toys out the pram. He kind of kept plugging away and ended up winning all the big races for gigging down even though Ryan Cooper was choosing the wrong horse and he said, you know, there's a lot of things like that, I always look to him and in his career and take a lot away from it. And I think you can apply that to any sport. What was his line? Don't get bitter, get better. Exactly. That's Graham water's I'll tell you what, if you went to for me tomorrow I'll be your biggest fan. I'll be trying, don't worry. That's grand.

"Head of folks here. Contacts is shown talking to ruth graham. The book is transforming transforming loneliness deepening. Our relationship with god and others when we feel alone ruth. It is an amazing thing. You said that forty seven percent of people polled said that they were lonely. That's is an astonishing amount. Really sure that that's accurate. I think it's higher than that because people are ashamed to tell people they're lonely and there. There's some sort of stigma they feel to that so. I'm not sure that that's accurate. I think is probably higher than that. Which is really sad. Well look there's no question that the simple answer to this is to forge relationship with the lord and you're never alone if you're alone you're alone with the lord and you can talk to him and that's a beautiful thing but part of the epidemic of loneliness has to do. I think with what's happened to the culture. Social media is only the sort of most recent iteration of trend where where people have had the convenience more and more to avoid having to mix with a with other people. You can have everything right there. You can have your tv and your computer and and in a way it's a blessing until it becomes Sad and i just feel like we've built a world where it's just you. You don't have as much community happening. I mean the church of course is one place but there used to be a lot of that in american life and we have much less of that we do. And that's that's a shame and said but we can build our own community you know. We don't have to just let the culture you know decide for us what we're going to do. We can build our community. We can joining a church. We can join a book club. We can join any sort of group to be Connected with other people. But that's the choice that we make. And i often use. My mother is illustrating. Most people would not have thought that my mother was lonely but my mother was lonely She was a woman who was on the public stage and she couldn't don't anybody and share her heart because it might be on the front page the next day so she was very alone in. She made choices. she made. Choi the that christ would be her center. That christ would be her purpose. That christ would be. Her confidante and mother gave her life to christ and he transformed her loneliness. And as i travel around the country even now i run into people who were him her sunday school class in the seventies and they tell me what an impact she had on their life. She she was allowed the lord to transform her loneliness into touching other people's lives and we can do the same thing. It's an amazing thing you you grew up in extraordinary family but i imagine growing up in that family. It's it's a it's just a family for good and for ill just like most families are and i think a lot of people would think. Oh my goodness child of billy graham. What a magical existence you have talked about this to me and you've talked about this publicly that it wasn't a magical existence. It had a downside dysfunctional. Just like everybody else but when you have a father who travels that much. You're going to find some dysfunction in the family. And certainly that was dysfunction in my of my life in the family life but you know god is faithful to us and i'm not going to be critical of my mother or my father. They were unique people for unique time for unique purpose and i know people upset them up examples. They are not examples. They're exceptions. And i think that mother and daddy were so faithful to god and we're such wonderful examples to us as children and i'm very grateful for the family that did have as dysfunctional as it was. It's funny though. Isn't it when you become a parent You have a lot more grace for your own parents because you realize that nobody gets this right. Whoever's apparent is apparent for the first time You you just do your best and then you kind of repent and you know acknowledge your fault. But now it's too late because the kids are grown up. I mean it's an amazing thing that every generation has to go through that. And i'm sure that you know as a in some ways magical and extraordinary as your parents where they they were just people doing the best. They could And then you have to pick up the pieces in your own life and then you have to make sure you don't pass on those problems as you raise your kids and so it's not. It's not easy is it. it's not easy. Being a parent is a very difficult job. And it's a time job in even found out now. My children are grown. That it's even harder now two grown children but i am just grateful for example that mother daddy gave me but my children have been such a blessing to me and they have been with me through the ups and downs and The they live in my neighborhood My sons-in-law want to live near me. And i thought what a blessing that is that my sons-in-law would choose to live next to their other law so we have a wonderful town and during the pandemic. We had let sunday lunch every sunday. So that cure my loneliness that is that is so wonderful so you you live alone as you say but have family around you which seems a pretty wonderful It makes it a lot easier. If they're not you know a plane ride away What do you do when when you're alone do you do. You read much. What books do you read. I'm always curious what people read or whether they read if they have a place to do that in their lives. Read loved blow mysteries of good. Who done it but right now. I'm reading philippians. New book His life story. Where the light. When like phil and very excited to redraft and read your books so it some might mother was a good example. Bet she always on her side table. She had a bestseller. She had her boggle. She had a book about china and she had a devotional book and someone civil one. Have all those books. Widens our to those want to finish one before you start another and she said no you never finish the all the peoples before you open something. I'm afraid we're out of time. Ruth graham just makes me happy to see you. God bless you. congratulations folks. The book is transforming loneliness deepening relationships with god and others when we feel alone.

Show talking to my friend pastor jack graham prestwood baptist right here in the dallas area Wait what part of the dallas area dallas area doubts area. No but your churches specifically in plano plano. What and prosper. So you have multiple campuses saying that. Publicly is pride. I condemn you okay. So the suppressing the book is the book has reignite. Actually i wanna say this too. Because i don't know if i've ever said this on the air there are times when i've been so depressed i cannot read the bible cannot pray and god has allowed me eventually to get to a place where i realize even there. He loves me. This and i remember reading. You know richard form brand. He wrote a book called tortured. Christ he went through living hell in communist prisons and stuff and he talked about being so debilitated that he couldn't pray he couldn't do. This was just because of what he'd been through but he said i would just inside be thinking i love you. Jesus i love you. Jesus in other words even when you can do nothing mentally you can battle this just by saying what is true and that can be a powerful weapon so even if you don't feel what is true because when you're depressing feel truth you feel these lies but your brain still knows no matter how i feel. Jesus loves meat. Nothing can can mess with that. My emotions mean nothing compared to that truth and my emotions can lie to me. But if i could just lie here and say jesus i love you. Jesus you love me. if that's all you can do. That is powerful. You don't need to be you know a rare work getting up at six. Am and hitting your knees and it because sometimes you cannot do that and if you literally. If you can't do that you need to know. Not only is that okay. That's okay with god and get people who you trust to be on your team to pray for you and people that love you who thank god for deb grey. I'm me. She walked with me through this and she'd never seen this in may of any dumped her for a younger wife. Didn't you know not at all is definitely she's beautiful and i would we just past fifty one years of marriage. You guys listen. Praise god right. We're at a point where we should say this. You know having someone by your side. Who loves jesus. And who's i mean. There's no substitute for that and i. It's sometimes the simple things you know when when for me. I don't know how others field. But i kept saying to death and my closest friend am i gonna be okay because that whole thing is no your broken. You're you're totally and completely broken. You're never gonna get well. And i would say am i gonna be okay and just to hear somebody who loves you. Say you're gonna be okay. you're going to make. It was very very important as you know. I wrote a biography of luther preached about him in your a little bit about depression and bring him up. Because i remember him and this is so cool right away when he was going through hell and i think he had anxiety and depression and obsessive compulsive disorder. I'm not even kidding. I think he had that stuff. It would attack him viciously and to say it's a satanic attack. Yes it is. But it's a combination of things and we don't know but he would have people pray for him and he would say and this is brilliant. Their faith was enough for me in other words. God is so gracious that that even if you have no faith you're just dead and you get people to pray for you. God response to that. It's not like oh it's on you. It's on you it's on you. People can pray for you and that can just magically lift you out of things or at least be a comfort to you intellectually that god is. God is with me through their prayers. Even if i don't have the ability to believe anything right now. I'm just here exactly and in in the book Move from this story. Sixty pages About this story. And how. I got through that too talking about enduring faith and so. The bulk of the book is is about enduring times. Tough when when whether you're depressed or whatever mental or spiritual anguish may be facing we all suffer. We know that. And so. I talk about a lot of basics. And how over the years. I've learned that you can trust god. In every season of life including seasons of suffering and the god of all comfort the bible says comforts us and with the comfort that we are comforted. We comfort others. I remember going into the pulpit. Very quickly when i could barely get up there to speak so i just took promises of god that i've memorized and i just you know scribble some notes and talked about the various promises of god each week and i thought these are really terrible sermons because i could barely concentrate to prepare and when we put those on television and radio later they became the number one requested sermon series on those promises when i was so weak when i could barely crawl up there and preach the number one thing i. It's that truth that when we're we got strong and in our weakness is sent our broken ness that we're built back stronger than ever. That's why call it reignite. Well reignite is the book jet. Graham is the author pastor friend. Jackie the scripture that. I remember when i am really the most down the one scripture that i remember and i feel like i can't think of anyone that's been more important for me but where it says all things work together for good for those that loved the lord and are called according his purposes all things depression debilitate in other words. No matter what you're going through we have a god who is able to take the worst thing in your life and to work together for good standing on that. Promise it just. There's nothing else that you could say. I'm lying here. I don't know if i'm going to get better and you know. Even that doesn't matter because god says all things work together for good. It's just an amazing thing that god put someplace in scripture very clearly that so that every single thing there is including the worst thing you go through works together for good for those i love him and that's a comfort and what you just said you know you comfort those because you've been through this now you can sit here at this microphone with this book and minister to people. You would not be able to do that. The lord is using you because you allowed him to take you through that season and that is our prayer the other scripture that you know i i really want people to hear because some people may be watching listening to this right now who are just hanging by threat and you're wondering year believing some of those lies you're gonna be stuck. I'm gonna be like this forever and guess what there may be. You may be going through this a while longer. But the god of all hope may the god of all hope fill you with peace and joy in believing that by the power of the holy spirit you may abound in hope hope israel hope is not wishful thinking hopes the sure and certain confidence that our future is in his hands. Well that's a great place to end my friend jack. Graham congratulations on fifty. One years of marriage combat is the most beautiful thing. Congratulations on the book. Reignite folks we're talking about something that's very important. The book is reignite jet..

"Six months to a year to get through this and again you know my personality. I'm going no no. I'm jack grandma. Don and a couple of weeks. And i just couldn't pull myself up. That was the craziest thing. I've never been able to pull myself up and to get going. And i felt like a dead man walking now. The funny thing is now. I'm assuming there are people listening to this program who have struggled some kind of depression so many people have and the problem is you know it's not like i lost a finger. Look there's no way to show anybody what it is. There's no no way even to know yourself. Is this depression or is this some new kind of reality. Is this reality. And so when it hits you even responding to it. I mean again if somebody stabs you you don't say well who knows. Maybe that's just something my body is doing. You know like okay. I need to get stitches. I need to get to a doctor. But depression is so insidious the a lot of times you kind of think. Well maybe i need to just pray harder or maybe do and then guilt can come in where you're beating yourself up. What is wrong with me. And i don't want to tell anybody because they're gonna see right through me that this is this is baloney this is not a particularly insidious and so you just to get to the physical peace now. So so you were you. Having some kind of treatments was was there. Any physical component as this happened or was this after. All that happened was where were you in terms of your physical health when you went into this season. Okay so the fiscal health was was good. Though there was you know concern. That maybe i would need further treatment which i ended up getting some further treatment and now here we are twelve years later. I'm happy to report. I'm cancer free. And we'd beat. We beat the cancer a so it was the year it was the emotional side that not down. Not the physical side. It was the fears. I here i am a pastor. I remember writing in my journal before going into the surgery. Lord don't let me flinch in the fire. So i really wanted to be strong and didn't flinch and i did flinch but to use the story of chad rack. Check in bendigo. You know christ was with me in the fire. The son of man and i will say like we preach like we teach adversity brought greater maturity. i'm a better pass drama better comforter of people having experienced this. I understand this If somebody tells me they're having a mental health issue. I get it a lot more and so It's it's very real. You're right it is not something you can see from the outside. It's not a wound. It's not you know you're you're not limping except in your soul. Well it's just wonderful to have you talking openly about this. The book is reignite fresh. Focus for an enduring faith talking to jack. Graham the nasdaq part of the problem. I was talking to voting outcome earlier. Certain things are so insidious another words if somebody says. Hey you've got depression. You need to pray more or listen to more worship music or what way that could solve certain kinds of depression which is why you really do. Think like it. Could it could be me because there are people who are doing the wrong things if you're not exercising if you're not any number of things that can contribute right but it's been my experience that you could do everything right and even the depression can make it difficult to pray can make it difficult to read scripture so you need to have discernment about that kind of thing. One of the things that happens. Is you start believing lies. And because depression lies to you and the the thing that i dealt with so much was you're stuck like this forever. We're gonna. I wanna come back and talk about that. Depression is unique. Think you're gonna be stuck with forever that is that is a major major piece of deep depression. We'll be right back talking to jack.

"Least for another few years. The fledgling graham made a name for himself prosecuting. The impeachment of president clinton and after eight hot and heavy years in the house. He was finally ready to settle down for a long term. Commitment with the us and no wedding would be complete. Without the best man. Graham and senator john mccain were the best of friends. United by their shared love of fiscal conservatism. Straight talk and a desire to bomb the middle east. Back to the stone-age. I believe those who are calling for draw have the obligation to tell us what we do. In the region. When it descends the chaos is my friend. Lindsey graham just said well i think senator mccain nailed it. They went searching for wmd's but they found their bff with iraq solved permanently. Graham in his political spouse were finally ready to co ascend to the most powerful office in the land but when they were foiled by an even more radical hussein. Graham became despondent. He knew that he would treat power so much better than that. Cat obama so he made his. I'm lindsey graham. And i'm running for president of the united states. Yes lindsey graham was single and ready to mingle with voters. He turned the white house into his bachelor pad. Firstly numbers this president. We don't drink more and the media was fascinated with his roguish light style. So it's date mary or make disappear forever. Hillary clinton carly fiorina for sarah who you marrying carly 'cause she's.

African americans would come in and buy the beer to go. And i remember asking my parents while was it. They said that's just the way it is. That was another lesson. When you see injustice anywhere at any time you can just say whatever and move along then in his teenage years like most voices age linzie developed strange new urges in uncontrollable lust political power. Classmates remember him saying. I want to be governor and also let me out of this locker. After becoming the first in his family to graduate college graham joined the armed forces where he would serve six and a half years in the air force as a lawyer in a lot of ways. Graham charted a path similar to american icon. Tom cruise bartender lawyer. Member of the air force but as a lawyer and all with the grace and style of a southern vampire and of course. He secretly very short during his time. In the air force graham fell into a love affair with a lufthansa flight attendant named sylvia but sadly it was not to be. That was probably the best time in my life but You know at the end of the day. Everybody's got a story. A lot of people had it worse than i have. But check it out. Lindsey graham dot com.

"So thanks for joining me for this podcast. Welcome franklin back to harvest. Welcome when you look at the old archival footage. That was a pretty cool little motorbike. You had there by the way. What are you writing. I had saved up greg all for two years. My parents went by for me as a called. A little by a company called rupp out of mansfield. Ohio and i remember the day that it arrived after i had worked two years for it. That was a big bay in my life. When you look back at those old videos what comes to mind. Is it sort of like going back in time to you. Were those days that does that make you sad happy. A mixture of both of those emotions graduates thankful. There was just thankful for the home. That i was raised in for the parents. Godly parents. that love god That shared not only christ in the home but they lived it the ruth and graham that the world saw on television They weren't different people at home. It was the same people. And so i've just thankful but look at those pictures for many people. Your father billy is like a larger than life figure. Would you ever come into your room in the middle of the night and say something like. Do you hope or something like that with that. Every he gave us a lot of space. I can't ever remember my father coming into my bedroom. He just figured that was my room. That was my space and Not my mother. That's different Got daddy. I can't ever remember a time where you came in. There was on the road a lot listening in. He was gone quite a one time greg. He was gone to australia for six months and people would say well how. How could somebody do that. Well you have to remember after the second world war when we had soldiers that had been gone for three and four years fighting in defending our freedom and my father was just starting his ministry thought. Well how could go halfway around the world and just go for two weeks now He felt that they were being a bad steward of the lord's resources. So they now had to do it over again. He wouldn't do that about back then. Under those circumstances he does the right thing. I've actually heard him say. I think in an interview with greta. Van susteren a big change. Anything he would probably spend more time with his family. He would spend more time studying and less time Speaking not preaching he would get invitations all the time to come dedicate this or go speak at that and he wishes now he had not done all of that. Go back to that photo that they just had up there. You see that photo there. You see her expression. You still have that expression today and this expression of franklin. This is when he's about to do something naughty. He's gonna say something or do something. You really haven't changed that much. Well thanks pretty good. Look we've known each other a long time. Okay so christmas. And the graham holmes what was it like. Would you get up in the morning. Open the in the morning. would you open them. Christmas eve founded at work. Their christmas eve we of course of By father would read the christmas story tally. every year he would every year then. A christmas morning We would have time of prayer and Before we'd open up any gifts with normally open up have. My mother loved christmas. She got a big kick out of this so the house was always decorated to the hill. We had the stockings. And i remember one year. I got ashes and switches in mind you ashes and switches switches. So why did you receive such a gift. Because i deserved them kind of coming back to that expression it's kind of a a little euro trouble making little boy. Weren't you how troublemaking. I had three older sisters. That just brought it from the cops in your car so the gate would shut behind you. That's troublemaking. that was a long time. I can't remember that from so looks like your dad's giving you a little talking to you. That's your brother net. He's talking to and and then there you are holding the football listening in. You know it's funny your boys so much like you look of course and that graham resemblance goes to the family okay so he would read the christmas story to you. What kind of a meal would you guys have like christmas dinner in the graham. Hope for at that time. In my mother was born in china her parents were missionaries to china as a missionary surgeon and somewhere along the way the developed a this. I don't know why they did this stew for christmas morning. I mean i don't like waster stu period and and and having for breakfast So my mother would have this student. Nobody ate it My father ate it because he had to. We just rolled up our noses but for lunch. You know it was a turkey and ham and all that kind of stuff but that do business if for families out there that want to try something. Different have oyster stew. This christmas and just see how it goes over good. So what was your favorite christmas gift. He received as a child. We lived in a rural area. So our gifts were probably a little unconventional. We use the got a gun for christmas and we'd go out in the backyard and shoot at squirrels and those kinds of things. So that was kind of christmas at the graham. Yeah so as you grow older. You did have your time of rebellion. We've mentioned and you did make a commitment to christ to follow him and you took over an organization called samaritan's purse that was by bob peers and the ministry began to grow. But did you have sort of apprehension about being a preacher because your father such a noted preacher did you want to maybe run this organization and not be a guy who preached the gospel or. Were you comfortable getting up there in preaching right away. No i never felt in those early days that god was calling me to preach. Because why would i want to put myself in a situation where i'd be compared to my father could never be billy graham and so why even be in that position so i was comfortable running samaritans person and doing the work I listened desire is always been to lead people to christ but to stand up on a stage or platform preached the gospel and give an invitation. I didn't feel that calling really until about. Oh i guess it's about twenty years ago. And then i just felt that was something odd. Was calling me that disappointed somebody. Or if if i didn't measure up there is is tough. You know if. I was going to preach the gospel because i believe the gospel is the power of god into salvation to everyone who believes and so i wasn't trying to be my father wasn't trying to imitate him is just simply preaching the gospel. Because it's god's word and it's his gospel. What would you say in a nutshell. Is the gospel. Define the gospel. Well that god loves us and that he sent his son from heaven to this earth that take our sins that he died in shit has blood for our sins on cavernous cross. He was buried for our sins and god raised to life the third day and he will come into your heart. If you're willing to accept in trusting the that's the gospel you don't one of the things. I appreciate your about. Your franklin is not only. Do you preach the gospel but as we collect these boxes. This isn't an evangelistic ministry. There are relief agencies out there humanitarian organisations then. There are even christian humanitarian organizations. That maybe they do it in the name of christ but they don't necessarily present christ in their work that they do but what. I like about samaritans purse as you are a great humanitarian organization. You provide relief for people all around the world but always with a view to bring the gospel. I think that's because you're called isn't evangelist and that's so important. Isn't it great. We can give gifts to children all day long. Put a smile on their face. And what have you done for them but when you can give a gift and we asked people when you pack a box to pray for the box and you just pray for the boxes that are coming tonight but we also ask people put your picture in there and put your address on the back. We won't not only to pray for the children. We want children. Who.
