"Work for you trust takes to a whole `nother level, and so when you're able to be open and honest with your children and they can be opening honest with you and then you can share your desires. You wishes in this type of thing, but it should not be too far off by you raising your children because they know you because there are things Marcellus does and my children do. Yeah my son that they are doing now they said, dad, you remember used to take us to a hotel in the wintertime and we were playing the indoor pool right and so the other day he said after we leave you all here. At your home, we're going to go to a hotel in the kids. My grandkids were so excited. And looking at me blinking his out like. The tradition continues you touched on this I wanNA get into this for a minute, the idea of fatherless-ness and by definition grandfather looseness in the culture. What is the impact you're coming from the African American experience although now you know what? It's forty percent of kids almost twenty seven million children black white. Latino doesn't matter at this point higher incidents in the African American community but we're all going in the same direction. And that is fatherless homes and speak from your heart about that. 'cause you mentor. So many young people your football background fellowship of Christian athletes the National Center for fathering and father's dot com I I'd like to know how you got that. We get domain. That's a good one but. How do we cope in this culture that seems to be cracking? Well bottom line when you talk about the family of what Y'all have done for years as I stated earlier. That's the crisis, the family we can bounce the budget from the White House to our house but if we don't have strong families and as you stated Jim from your background, didn't know your. Your grandfather, your natural grandfather and all that. But every child needs a father grandfather or father figure right need to have someone. That's GonNa play check with you. That's going to encourage you the kids right next door to me I. BELIEVE I share this before here family with three. Boys Dad. Hasn't been there since breath was too. But I'm their father figure the but now they see grandkids running into our home also. So I am modeling this they are going to watch you people would know that you're Christian by Your love. So after love my grandchildren I have to encourage and love others that are in my sphere of influence. So true and that's the thing we have to realize his Dr Martin Luther King share years ago what effects one directly affects all others indirectly around them if we really want to make an investment in American say what is it that I can do? Love. God. Love Your family you natural children. But then you grandchildren the folks, our listeners today that are just said, hey, give me some handles but I get up every morning. The greatest thing I can do is to visit with God and to pray give me wisdom give me the piece that I need and he says I'll supply your knees also, and here I am been in nonprofits all my life our needs are met our grandchildren think we're the richest people in the world. You know what I love is sending the boys like a scripture verse on their phone. And they're at school I do it at school when it dings the first time I did at Troy said to me dad that's buzzing in my class I said, well, look at it when you get out of class but I want them to know him thinking about grandparent ing that doors wide open for grandchild to know that Grandpa knows who I am cares enough to send me a note and I. It's just a great thing Jim. Let me say this real quick. What you just said disparate mar heart to know in in the reason why? Do. You Know How many children? Would love to hear their phone buzz. From their father. Yeah. I'm proud that you do that. They are children that would love to hear that buzz in the have affirmation a look at John Children that he has yourself they would love to have that affirmation and one thing we do as well in our family for years as I choose a psalm of the week, every Sunday night and I text it to Melanie then she texted to all the Childr- grandchildren will be able. To receive that dude as well. But that's a good thing for everyone to do just think of that little thing you could do that takes very little time Carey in your book championship grandfather and you had an excerpt of a little boy named Jordan. He's nine and this to me really begins to sum up our time together here. Let me read it and you can respond to it. Jordan wrote four months before I was born my real father left my mommy he took care of her until I was born when I came home from the hospital there was a cradle that grandpa made just for me. Someday my kids will sleep in the same cradle. He rocked me to sleep and he was my first baby sitter now nine years old and GRANDPA's my best buddy when I was four, my grandpa spent a whole summer building. Me Play House with a big sandbox underneath it. Now, he spends all his extra time building new rooms on her house so that Mommy and I will have our own apartment. After he spent all day mowing our big lawn, he is really tired but he will still hook my wagon up to the lawn more and drive me all over the place. My GRANDPA isn't my father, but I wouldn't trade him for all the DADS in the world. Is that say it and that's the power grandfather that's the power of a grandfather and even in our culture it when we talk about the father deficit and Das-, that are not stepping up to the plate some of them didn't have someone to help to model for them. We talk about in championship. Father. Loving coaching modeling. That's what a dad does. We found through our research but a lot of children today. A being raised by their grandparents in this great country. So. Very thankful that they grandfather stepped up and every child needs a father grandfather I figure. Yeah and so there's that grandfather that stood in the gap for the young man and let me point out. There are a lot of grandmothers. Yes. Holland the load on that and I want to tip my hat to those grandma's GonNa. They're doing such a great job out there. Hey, Kerry a little bit ago you mentioned. Your prayers, your morning prayers are your grandkids on your list and if so what kind of things do you pray for them because it it occurs to me that a championship grandfather who was a man of faith is one of the greatest things you can do is pray for those grandkids and. It's just like even today we have what you call thirty one virtues to pray for your kids and so we use that in what pray for my children and grandchildren is to have a servant's heart that they would serve each other and serve those at their school in all of this and where they are employees but I was convicted about. Ten twelve years ago. In my war room as we say. Is the Carolina Room but the Lord said you need to pray in this room he led me to do something that is so therapeutic for me. In that is to write down. All of their names every morning because guy can do more than I ever could if I had all of them around me every day. But the things that are coming against us today we have to realize is coming to take strong spiritual force in the way of the Holy Spirit in. So I have found as I write down the name that can be very intentional in pitcher them. As I pray for them and we have a greater opportunity and I just love their prayer called to pray for them to have courage today prey on the thirteenth for their purity lower my grandchildren they don't even know how well they are smart. They know how to spill sex, but that they would remain cure and wait for their spouse when they're Mary depre- intentionally in that way in God is honoring that in a wonderful way. Do being attacked in ways that I never could imagine. Yeah. So I have to be in prayer for my dad for the heritage I received in for the legacy that will lead and I, think it'd be great to post. Those. John Online for folks to go to. We'll look at those virtues we may come up with a few of our own, but will create something there that people could pray over their grandkids and their kids I'm still thinking in the dad moved here and it will help the grandparents. To relax the teams that win the Super Bowl would be the ones that keep their poise. Don't lose their minds even when it's tough. I, love that. Of course, you played college ball and You know it's just wonderful to see that Championship attitude and you've done this in your book humbled to be able to do on.

"Preach better than most folks. and. That's in my DNA that's a legacy that you've not perfect nine of us but. That's where I came from and it gives you something to aim for. Your heritage. That's it. Now, where you are Jim you have cut off the curse. In. Your family. That's the deal in. We didn't mention it but GRANDAD'S DAD's everybody is dysfunctional. We are. We have to draw that line in the sand and say this is how I'm going to carry myself now. Right you see. And you don't have to do with a lot of words although you tell the next generation, but the way you live. And a few months ago half a year ago, received a letter in the mail from a lawyer in Radford Virginia and it was stating that some property is going to be sold by my art the last. Living on I, have on my mother's side and Grandad and nineteen, forty, two pastoring a church bought a home in some property and then. The Lord took him home in nineteen, forty five and sold property naturally in grandmother's name, and then all the children. But all of them passed my mother and her siblings Passo, it went to the I didn't WanNa, take care of the property. So she sold it. So all of us grandchildren believe it or not I wish I didn't have so many cousins. At that moment at that moment but the point of making is it talks about how you know the grandparents, the inheritance that they have received from their parents well but then what they would leave and so he made an investment I'm an African American gentlemen. I'm so proud because they talk about how messed up our families are. But here it was none of us ever met Granddad but we heard how great preaches but. Bottom line is he did something this biblical even as we look at Psalm seventy eight and he did something that was biblical naturally living in out he made investments even back then before there was Larry Cat Dayton, and all of our great people that really helpless today but it's not rocket scientists in the Bible right? It's so good when you are looking at the current generation, as Grandad with nine grandchildren now. Is it a greater disconnect because of technology? Is it tougher to be a grandparent today because they're so distracted to not sitting there on the porch with you much anymore man sometimes even at the restaurant, they're just doing phones at the table I've watched that thankfully genes been a stickler God bless her I mean we nobody has a phone at our table at the daily household when we're eating dinner together, how proud of y'all doing? How do you? Yeah what do you do as a grandfather in this high-tech distracted? Grandchild Environment. How do you connect with them? I do believe this though biblically of how God made us. I look at my grandchildren I ask the questions like so who is Your Dad's dad? Who is your MOM's mom in you're asking them questions and you get answers but Melania Ni- and I believe all grandparents we must be intentional We must focus ourselves even when they have their phones don't belittle them lay down all the laws, but make it. So exciting in with such great depth that they want to get to know you and that's comes to asking questions. You given them rewards and things and I'm finding out my spirit is deeper in better now with my grandchildren than our was with my children, sure this is focused on the family with Jim Daly and Kerry Casey's our guest today I hope you'll request his book championship grandfathering we've got the details in the episode notes carry a lot of grandfathers may have the goal of relaxing and playing golf and enjoying entertainment. Later in life, how do you become intentional as a grandfather when the grandkids come to visit it's an investment and Go to work. We make money that's wonderful but the investment in your own children, my children will be my children until I go to glory. Lead before them but there's another part of that great investment. It's called grandchildren and that's the investment in the KC family that I must make I cannot just coast put on. Auto Palette. These are some of the greatest years that I will have to continue to bill my parents the heritage that I receive from them and then continuing their legacy you look at our Christmas card it well, Christmas time we make home alone look like a joke. I mean on. But thinking about when I'm gone, it seemed like yesterday there. My Dad Mom were here dad and coach Tom Landry the cowboys I used to work there. They passed on the same day February twelfth two thousand but I have to work with the. That I've received that investment in you mentioned the word model young people need to see the culture needs to see it today. No matter how dysfunctional a whack we say this America is we have some great great option. Yeah, and that is the family in what you have been doing for years. Yeah. But that grand parenting it's going to a whole, `nother level for me with those nine. Bambi. One of the things I didn't have grandparents I never knew my grandparents but I remember the hope family who led my mom to the Lord they were surrogate grandparents I. Remember we'd go over there, Christmas time. They didn't live far from us. We were taken in as part of the family and they treated us like that. They had two sons that were my oldest brother's age and so but I remember some of the fondest memories going over there to the hopes and. GRANDPA, hope we've been called him. GRANDPA. Hope he was sitting in this chair out in his he loved having a kind of an atrium with a garden in it and he had a big recliner sitting there with checkers and we'd come over and we'd sit there and he would just take everybody on checkers including me the little five year old. You know he taught me how to play checkers I'm sure he lost on purpose a COUPLA. Build me and but that's what a grandparent does. Especially grandfather you totally because those grandkids are looking for that affirmation all kinds of ways but even just playing checkers walking to the park together maybe playing catch if you can still do that physically. It seems like a grandfather has even more impact than a dad. In that way you have that wisdom that's what he had. He took something as simple as a game of checkers to literally help up raise up the next generation and that's wisdom and he knew that and you said he had to recliner he's just chilling still. Sitting there with the beautiful plants. Yeah..

Eleventh two, thousand one in the terrorist attacks here in the United States in New York, Fire Department captain j Jonas, and twelve men rescued a woman and survived inside the collapse of the World Trade. Center's north tower. Here's Captain Jonas reflecting on that day. I think most people were. Appreciating. The small things in life right after September eleventh and. I. Think we've gotten away from that. You know. New York City became a small town overnight everybody was helping each other out near the end. That's kind of died down. It's everything's kind of settled out but. You have no guarantees. And Everything, you have could be taken away. At a moment's notice. So you really.

Carey has an inspiring message today for the growing number of men who wants to be championship. Grandfather's your host is focused president and author Jim Daly and I'm John Fuller Ajan. Here's an interesting stat ninety percent of Americans over age sixty five who have adult children are grandparents. A good thing, but it's also challenging to be a grandparent most men become grandfather's at about age fifty and with people living longer children should have more opportunity know their grandparents that could be several decades of relationship and so today we want to talk about being intentional and making the most of grand parenting while leaving spiritual legacy for your grandkids and Carry Casey published a book with focus on the family. It's called championship grandfathering curious the CEO of championship fathering and is a pastor and motivational speaker, and let's go ahead and hear that conversation recorded a little while back on focus on the family. Kerry. Welcome back to the microphones. Thank you on. So honored to be with you. Carry when you came last time to focus on the family, you had grandchildren you've had a productive couple of years you have four grown children, and now you have nine grand children. We have five granddaughters and four grandsons. Their ages are pretty tight, right? Yes. They're growing up together is really exciting to see and how God worked it out that way. So we have nine grandchildren nine and we have two that are two years of age. Okay. So here's the big question. What's the difference between fathering a child and grandfathering child other than maybe not as many dirty diapers? Well, one of the exciting things is that. They can come over and spend the night. And then we can send them home. Yeah Right. So do you are you the you know that absolute spoiler of your grandkids you're totally right Jim I'm the spoiler believe it or not.

I can have time with CEO or ambassador for fathers and all of that. But when it really gets down to it, I have to model it and I, have to leave that legacy to have that testimony you mentioned your grandfather how did he do that for you as a grandson? What did he do that? Caught your attention growing up? Well, I never met my mother's Dad, my grandfather who was a pastor but. One time I was preaching the debt Grandad's own church.

After 2011 Disaster, Fukushima Embraced Solar Power. The Rest Of Japan Has Not
"Before the earthquake before the NAMI and the nuclear disaster Japan got nearly a third of its energy from nuclear power. But after the Fukushima nuclear disaster in two thousand eleven, the country took all of its nuclear reactors off line, which has led Japan to increasingly rely on fossil fuels and also solar power. NPR's cat ORF continues our series on recovery and Fukushima. She only endo is saying a final goodbye. To the home she once shared with her husband and three kids and for Cosima it's less than a mile from the Daiichi nuclear power plant where three reactors overheated and exploded in two thousand eleven. They left fast only taking what they could carry.

The thing is pretty unceremonious though in reality she only says, she said goodbye to this part of her life. Disaster when her family piled into a car and drove as far south as they go to the southern tip of Japan on the island of Kyushu. Here, she's a single mom to her bubbly ten-year-old son Cagey who was just a baby when the disaster happened, he doesn't remember Shema at all her other two children are grown and live nearby, and she only has found herself within unlikely job running a small solar farm. On a big hill overlooking the tropical landscape Ma hidden is yet. She never imagined. My life would be like this guy when we first moved here, I was in my late thirties my husband was in his forties unanue issue we were like, okay. Do we get new jobs? So we decided to do this. We saw as investment for the future month on her husband worked at the Nuclear Power Plant for over twenty years and for him, the switch to solar was purposeful. He felt that nuclear power had betrayed him do on didn't He grew up really believing nuclear power was safe and then he lost his home to come see today the energy collected by these panels has allowed her to build a new life. The power is sold to the local utility company and brings in thousands of dollars a month when her husband died suddenly a few years ago she only took over the work and the family placed his grave in the center of the solar panels show me walks over to tall marblestone.

We can't deal with that kind of wasted drivers go. Joey's wish might not come true though her family started their business at the right time. The price was so generous and also delegration was sold loose. So anyone can register. Naida is the executive director of the Institute of Sustainable Energy Policies. In Tokyo, he says in the early years after the disaster Japan pushed renewables to help fill energy gap left after fifty four nuclear reactors were taken off line the. Government offered big incentives, new investors, lots of people like me and her husband jumped on board to build smaller operations. incorporations rushed in to build massive solar and wind farms but also the liberation was more strict compensation dropped. It got increasingly harder for alternative energy producers to connect into the power grid edith says, this was partly due to the big utility companies trying to maintain control and the government allowing. It to happen the sitting kind of a body of to north to Laputa increase anymore, the institutions make a big difference that's Jennifer Sclerosis of George. Mason University she studies energy policy in Japan, and she says, there is technology an interest for renewables in Japan, but the bigger power companies in government need to commit if people in place do not watch to implement policies to empower the economics and the. Technology innovation then it can't happen regardless of how advanced technologies earn regardless of how good the economics look many of the major utilities as well as the Japanese government are still waiting to see if nuclear power can make a comeback and renewables just aren't that reliable yet.

It's a real turnaround for a place where nuclear power ruled only a decade ago especially in the former exclusion zone near Daiichi, there are solar panels everywhere from small ones on roofs and hillsides to massive mega-farms along highways making use of land available after the disaster some of these panels are run by big developers and others are not. Lake the solar panels on farmer. She get Yuki Corneau's field. He's seventy four years old and this land has been in his family for generations he gestures around it. This is all my land, but it's nonsense. Nonsense because it's relatively useless the wind carried radioactive material here after the disaster and the government has scraped off all the topsoil in decontamination efforts. The farmers here can't really far much anymore. So small local power company came and asked sugar. Yuki if they could rent land for solar panels, he said, yes could you go I was really worried after the nuclear accident how would we get power most of his neighbors also agreed but that means everything is different. Now he says there were Rice patties all around here with tiny frogs that created a kind of soundtrack for his life now it's quiet. He misses the frogs a lot and he says, and he doesn't make nearly the same amount of money as he did farming. But She Yuki says he sees this as a necessary change. He has nine grandkids they all live far away now but they were just in town the other weekend for visit running through the fields. Suze my grandparents farmed here my parents do.

But anyway have you been Roger I mean it's It's crazy times in the world and deep purple is such a global touring band.

You've got a young one you gotta young onto don't you? Too Young well, eleven and nine that's pretty young. That's a that's a that's younger than mine.

Having sitting on a new album beside long without getting released. He's like old hat to us now and yet everyone tearing it for the first time. Yeah. I was GonNa ask you used to that I was GonNa ask you about the time line on it because if I'm not mistaken when we were traveling together and we did run through Mexico together, I remember some rumblings at that time from some of the guys in the band about the idea of. Doing a new record. So at that point, it was still in the talking stages I think and then I'm assuming you wrapped up touring everybody said Yeah let's go for it and you once again connect with the Bob with Bob. Ezra talk about the timeline and and given that you guys are short of winding down. was there differences in the band as to whether you should do new record or not? No. No wasn't actually it was. Quite organic. We'll wanted to do it. I think the thing is since probe. we've done three albums with him now and there's I think there's a feeling that our age seventy S. This is the Korea and we we've got three Amazing albums. showed a sort of a late flowering of abandoned Korea if you like. Very happy about that what what is it? What is it about the connection with the Bantu Baba's your and you know I've talked Alice Cooper about this and he's got a long history with them and a few other artists and I've actually talked to Bob and interviewed him a timer to what what is it for you?

We didn't meet him that night, but the next day we had. A breakfast meeting with him. And he said some great things. He said he really loved musicianship in Swanton Ahe of the band. And He said. Should forget trying to you know, right. Songs to get you know. Parades forget sixty s just be yourself some stretch out. Not Keywords because we started writing. whatever immagination took us. and. I think we had a whole news of the writing experience lost three albums of Philip songs we could never written. Back in the seventies. So the the nineties so so You know. S Precious that connection. We get along with them really well, he looks very efficiently in the studio he encourages. Spontaneity. Encourages. freshness of all recording at the same time, we will go in the studio at the same dominant record the. We don't allow things on you know.

Former Hewlett Packard CEO Meg Whitman also spoke Republican and a longtime CEO. And let me tell you, Donald Trump has no clue how to run a business, let alone an economy. So members of the Illinois congressional delegation have their own virtual meeting to talk about issues facing the country, a little U. S Senator Dick Durbin says when it comes to the middle class. It's time to get back to the base and whether we're talking about a living wage. Whether we're talking about card check membership efforts for protection in the workplace, time and again, we've got to come back to basic principles. Mayor Lightfoot was part of a round table discussion yesterday on social justice with Biden. She says economic empowerment gives people a feeling that they have a stake in their own future. And that will create a lasting change.
The Most Quoted Verse in the Bible - Character of God
"This exodus thirty, four, six, and seven. Yala. Yala a compassionate God and gracious slow to anger an abundance of loyal love and faithfulness keeper of loyal love for thousands forgiving of Iniquity Transgression and sin yet he will surely not clear the guilty visitor of the iniquity of fathers upon sons and upon the sons of sons upon the third and the fourth generations in that seer translation, your notes stem Yep. So maybe I'm guessing our listeners have probably heard least some of these lines before but John, can you remember back when we first started talking about this and before we took a deep dive into these verses what they mean what your perception was? Yes. So the first verse is really. Wonderful. Compassionate and gracious slow to anger abundant and loyal love and faithfulness like that's what you want. Any friends Those attributes are really lovely and so. No wonder it's requoted so much by biblical owners and in different ways, and then the second half of the verse it starts out really lovely to reinforces that God's keeper of loyal love for thousands and forgive her of Iniquities, transgressions and sins, and then it just all of a sudden takes a turn. Yet he will not clear the guilty. He will visit the iniquity upon the fathers and the sons and on their sons and their sons, the grandkids. To the third and fourth generation. And so it just ends with this like whoo. Guess Scott is after all what is this deal with like punishing grandkids for? And it's like you know when when you're writing something out in when I think of writing a memorable paragraph, I'm going to end with the thing that is I want the listener to really go away with and just like the last thought is the thought I want them to becomes a central thought. And the last thought here is about visiting iniquity generational. Yeah, which is intent. Yeah. Totally. And all those other thoughts like of being faithful and all those things like all center in the background. Yeah. Yeah I. Think when I've quoted this verse Or said Oh I, love this verse I stop after for Giver of Inequity Transgressions. Yeah because then you've. Got The goodies all the gods goodies you know. Before that point. So you're saying it's kind of like a bait and switch almost feel like I. Love You. I, love you. He's wonderful and he's going to punish your family you know. But that's interesting to think about it from that angle John, where from a modern communication standpoint you end with the thing that you really WanNa make sure they take away for long-term Seems to be a different communication strategy here. Where if there's a balance? It's almost like the first half of the statement is about God's compassion and generosity but then. The second half. is about how God's generosity is not licensed for people to go do whatever they want. There's judgment and accountability I. Guess the Balancing Act is more important than the final word. I just think that's interesting different communication strategy. And you showed Tim. We we've really dissecting days two verses in terms of their literary structure and our first video here on. This is GonNa be highlighted. Yes. Those two items happening here and there's all the symmetry and it's in the cemetry that I'm supposed to kind of walk away with appreciating the tension but also appreciating how much more highlighted God's attributes of faithfulness and and slow to anger and gracious. How much more these good attributes would we would call hatch abusive Are. Supposed to stick with us in terms of of being more important. Yeah. Even though there is attention but you only get there when you kind of appreciate all that literary design whereas a Western modern reader I'm just like well yeah it feels like ends. Big, punch.
Should I Let My Little Brother Move In With Us?
"It's of Tuesday and this is the Ramsey call of the day part of the Ramsey networks. Lincoln Nebraska Dylan is Pie Dylan what's up? So. Excited to talk you. Know. I'm calling because I'm currently in baby step two with my husband. And we originally started at twenty, five thousand and we're down to about sixteen thousand. And my parents are going through a really bad divorce and my sixteen year old little brother would like to move in with me and my husband We're kind of at odds about it because. I want to let him move in but my husband. Wants to stay get intense and he's concerned. It will be too much of an expense if we let him move in. Are. You do you live near where he lives now? No they live about forty, five minutes away from Moscow I guess not too bad but he would stay in his same school community as a car. no she would transfer to school here in mine town. About forty five minutes from here. And what is the financial condition of your parents? Very poor they've filed bankruptcy and they are still even after the bankruptcy twenty, five, thousand and. What's your household income? Sixty five, thousand. What costs are associated with bringing him in food. food he would be would have to help him get a car because he doesn't have one and with daycare with my son Conflict with school scheduling. Bus Doesn't run front of Your House. You sorry. There's a bus not run for the school in front of Your House. No. But he he could. He could walk for a while it would just be hard one turn you really cold. How Far Away is it? About, a mile here That's not bad as nice little hike. uphill both ways and snow right You could tell his grandkids about it some day. It sounds like things are pretty miserable for him I want to help him. Me Too. So how is he miserable enough to? Take on some other forms of misery in order to get out of there like for instance, when he moves in with you, he starts he starts a job immediately and I saves up right quick and gets him a thousand dollar car. And he pays for it. He would be willing to work I I'm just concerned it would affect his grades. I'm concerned that he's living in a cesspool and he needs to get out. I'm not, concerned. About his range. He needs to work. If I'm your husband and you came to me and said, look, he'll take a job and he'll work this many hours and make much money He'll pay US fifty bucks a month for food and he'll save up to everything else and beyond a budget the way we teach him in order to save up and pay cash for his furlough thousand dollar car that we're going to help him get. We could be saving his life please let's do this for my brother. I think that's a regional thing. But if your little brother wants to move in there and sit on the couch and eat Doritos, all afternoon and suck. And play video games and sit on his butt. And then gripe because he ain't got a car that you gave him that he's entitled to because he breathes air this is different animal you following me. So I'm just I if he is as desperate to get out of that mess as it sounds like he is then he's desperate enough to do some crap. When he hits the road overture housing, it's get his life straightened out. I'm sorry for him. It's a tough road. He's at such situation. He's in his parents are both completely unplugged. Basically emotionally have abandoned him financially of abandoned him and he's sixteen years old. Let's talk. I'm. heartbreaking. But. If I'm your husband, your husband, he doesn't WanNa take a project on. He wants to bring in bring in someone that he can be a blessing to. If I'm your husband that's what I would be sitting on and so I think you can lay out some guidelines and then talk to your little brother and say these are our conditions if you will meet those, you're welcome. And of course, when you live under my roof, you live by my rules to. Come home drunk at sixteen years old. You're not doing dope it sixteen years old you're not doing you know out I just fill in the blank right? On Sunday. We're going to church or this is what we do at our house. Okay. If you live in my house, you do what we do at my house. You don't WanNa live there. It's okay. You don't like that that's live somewhere else. But when you're under my roof, this is high works. That's kind of old school. Should we did have a basic savings account for the car? Yeah. Just help him. I don't care if he puts it in a fruit jar. Just won't even I just wanted to sixty hours a week and go get him thousand dollars. Right? Quick. Okay sounds good. Just Bust I. Mean I just want him bust his butt man I want he's got a lot of emotion. He can burn off a bunch of it working. Yeah I agree I think that he's definitely willing to do what it takes anything more I just had reservations about forcing him to work so much I don't I don't have any reservations about it at all the best thing ever happened to him. He he won't die from it when you're working really really hard right before you pass out, she went to worry about work killing you won't kill you. So it's okay. You're going to be. All right. That's going to be the best thing ever happened to him. You're giving him safe emotional environment to live in someone that loves him and actually cares about his well being you're a good person. You're good sister. Well done. Just put some guidelines on it. So your husband feels like he's participating in. Process it's helpful and not enabling a bunch of crap.
Chaotic start to school year
"Well, we have a very odd school year. It's underway in some parts of the country. Other places won't even be underway till after Labor Day, but it is haphazard and. To call it, weird would not encompass it. Producer Joel has to school age kids and what's your kids story as far as their school. So they pushed back the start date for for two weeks of school in the first nine weeks are going to be virtual learning. And your kids are young young. So virtual learning at. Their age five, seven years old. That's right. Yeah. It's GONNA be. It's GonNa be Kinda hard to do the virtual learning thing You know we did my my five year old was in pre k. last year, and you know when they when they stopped going in person, we basically abandoned the online learning pretty quickly because for four year old to try to learn in front of a computer is is darn near impossible. Unless, it was a cartoon video, right exactly and I have a ninth grader, a high schooler who for now is going back into the classroom and they have a color coded system that I talked about a few weeks ago, which is yellow orange and red red is online. Only yellow is in the classroom four days a week in person orange two days a week in person, and they're starting off at yellow four days a week, and they are doing extreme distancing of the kids hundred percent mass compliance. And it is. Everything, they could do to try to deal with the public health side, my daughter, who is a college junior. Her school. Is Online, only all the way at least till January and I. Can tell you, she hated online march, April and May. And It was a terrible way to finish her sophomore year, and now she's got it all fall long as a college junior. They did cut the tuition though four percent. Still a crazy amount of money. But they gave a small tuition reduction. For the fact that is online. and. So this is something all of us are going to experience. It's going to keep changing. A suburb of Atlanta, that was much in the news nationally actually internationally for starting back school with no mass required no distancing required and immediately ended up with an outbreak of corona virus, and now is online only till they figure out what to do next. and. So this is hard for parents. especially, anytime, family lives in a multi generational household with grandparents living under the same rule. Roof is a school age. Grandkids is an intensely dangerous thing. If GRANDKID BRINGS CORONA virus from school and gives it to a grandparent in the house, the fatalities from Corona virus overwhelmingly had been among older Americans, and so the schools will benefit the most and the kids benefit the most from being in the classroom. But the teachers many of which may have a pre existing condition or endanger, and that's why having public health protocol for the kids is so important, but it's also important because. Preventing an outbreak in the school allows the school potentially to stay in person where it cannot otherwise. So. I. Hope that. We're able to keep our kids in school people like me who are fortunate to have at least one kid gets to go back in the classroom, but for this to work going forward. The safety protocols have to come first. So teachers staff. Administrators. Are, as safe as they can be in the school environment and that the kids coming home. Keep their. Family, members safe. That kids are not just like Joel's. Young, child, was not able to. Hang with the online thing, a lot of kids can't, and then other kids don't even have Internet access and can't do so.
Your Pursuit of a Better Body and the Perfect Diet Is Never Going to Make You Happy
"Welcome to the show folks I have today. Actually, an old family friend of mine Doug Wilson, who is the Minister of? Christ. Church in Moscow Idaho, Church that I attended through much of my childhood and also during college and still visit quite frequently whenever I'm down in Moscow Idaho which is only about ninety minutes from from my home in Spokane, and so I've I've known Mr Wilson for quite some time and he actually had a stint in the US Navy for a while. and. Then he attended the same university that I did University of Idaho ever while I got a glorified personal training certification he studied philosophy, and since then went on to do quite a bit notably, he he helped found and now serves on the board of Logo School, the school that my wife attended, which is a classical and Christian K through twelve school down in Donna Moscow he's also the senior fellow of theology at New Saint Andrews. College. In Moscow Idaho, which I would consider to be One of the better liberal arts institutions in the country actually end quite close to the coffee shop that my mom actually runs down in Moscow. Idaho and so I'm familiar with a lot of the students that go to that university as well or or that college as well a he has authored many books Mr Wilson is a prolific author and and his books are fantastic. He has A. Books on marriage on on child rearing on on I absolutely love his his titles on raising boys just because I have twin boys myself some excellent books on Christian Education his son Nathan Wilson. You might also be familiar with as as a as a well-known fiction author and all a link to to all of his books as well as everything else that we talk about if you go to Ben Greenfield fitness, dot com slash Doug, Wilson and. Doug also has about a metric ton of grandkids spread across the planet with what seems to be rapidly increasing frequency, and so he has a he has a lot of a lot of children out there bearing his name as. and so it the the topic that I really wanted to get into today is related to a book that Mr Wilson wrote called confession of a Food Catholic. I'm also going to link to that in the show notes as well because I I really really love to get. Your perspective. In by the way, I seem to be going back and forth between Doug and Mr Wilson, what do you prefer for for the show on Doug is great. All right. That's GonNa that's GonNa shorten the syllables I gotta us. All right. So so doug, you wrote this book called Confessions of a Food Catholic and and I know that you've also done quite bit of thinking about how we tackle this. the this relationship between health and fitness and pursuit of a better body and caring for our bodies and carrying for God's Temple but at the same time. Not kind of a sliding into into a selfish obsession with with our bodies and with health or with longevity or anti-aging at all costs, and this is certainly something that's been a a topic on my mind quite a bit lately and so. the this book confession of Food Catholic that you wrote with you say is dedicated all those at church dinners. I noticed didn't have enough protein on their plates and tried to cover it up by noticing I didn't have enough Greens on mine. Let, let's start here what what is a food Catholic and how would you describe yourself as a food. Catholic. Great. Thanks for having me on. This is a great opportunity afoot. Catholic is someone who believes that all foods are acceptable for us to eat with regard to our spiritual condition. In other words, I cannot put distance between me and God through anything I, put my mouth or I. Can't be put right with God through anything that I eat what I've noticed, and the reason I wrote the book is that many people feel they eat they feel a spiritual guilt either they feel if they eat poorly, if they missed the regimen that they assigned for themselves, it's not like, Oh, I failed to do the extra push up. It's there's a spiritual guilt that many people feel. And what I wanted to do was go to war with that sensation of guilt with regard to what you eat now if someone said yeah. But if someone had a a diet of deep fat fried twinkies and that's all. That's all they ate wouldn't that be bad for them or yeah it'd be bad for them. It'd be bad for their physical wellbeing is not healthy, but they're not corrupting their soul by means of the twinkie. Now, they may be corrupting their soul by means of their lack of discipline but that's a different issue. It's a different category. So we have a tendency to blame when we have a moral failing or. A spiritual shortcoming, we want to blame the stuff instead of addressing the root spiritual issue, which is your relationship to God i. think it's far worse to be fighting with someone over what they you go out to lunch with a friend and you spend the time quarrelling over what they ordered instead of just enjoying the time with your friend, right so so you're saying basically, is that sometimes the the legalism or the Self Righteousness That we get with with a lot of these laws that we set up for our self regarding food whether it's you know I'm going to be gluten free or I'm avoiding carbohydrates or I'm I'm not consuming vegetable oils because those aren't good for my body. What you're saying is that is that what you would care more about is not whether someone eats organic or processed food but why they're actually making those decisions exactly. So if What somebody else eats is frankly none of my business they're the one asked to eat it is their lunch they ordered it e if you want a a meal that's higher in fiber are lower in fiber or you need gluten not there or you maybe earth counter countering you order extra gluten. Right. Fixed. Diluting powder but we actually call that soy sauce. So. So you use this term in the book called the Food Pharisee, which is great. The P. H. O. Food Pharisee. And you describe these food pharisees as those who who would be unwilling to bring their food laws before the Bible to be examined and and said, that's a topic that Christians really need to think through biblically and when you get into this whole concept of a food fairs lifestyle, what I'd love you to do if possible is telling, you told me what you would describe a food Baresi. And then get into some of the issues regarding I. Think you break it down into into five different issues that this food pharisee lifestyle could be described as. So if you bring your food if you. Say Okay I want to compare how I eat to the Bible I to bring my food choices in the Bible. There's good news and bad news well, good news and bad news for the Food Pharisee. The good news is that whatever it is you're eating is fine. That's the good news. The bad news is whatever it is. Your neighbor is eating is also fine and the food pharisee is someone who wants to feel superior. They want to look down on someone who's making sub optimal choices right
'Better America': Biden's Campaign Launches New National Ad
"In one thousand, nine, sixty, four Lyndon Johnson ran a now iconic campaign ad against Barry Goldwater where a little girl counts daisy pedals until her counting becomes the countdown to nuclear explosion idea being present goldwater has become elected and started a nuclear war because he's a madman. said. It. there. Is, are, the stakes. You'll make a world in which all of God's children can live. Aren't to go into the dark room, we must either love each other. Or we must die. Vote for President Johnson on November third, the stakes are too high for you to stay home. The stakes are that you're adorable daughter gets nuked. Now. Even though we're not living through a nuclear winter, we are living through a version of disaster. I mean a a national disaster resulting in thousands and thousands of deaths day after day after day and a new Joe Biden goes against the grain in many ways the opposite of the grand life and death scale the daisy at. The new the biden relates what a bummer. This current disastrous doesn't focus deaths, evictions, closed schools. It says, this virus is ruining the little things like seeing your grandkids. have been gifted with two beautiful grandchildren. We try to see them as often as possible and it's been six months. And it's way too long. And while I don't blame Donald Trump for the virus, I blame him for his lack of action and because of that, we're sitting here zooming or facetime ing with our grandchildren instead of hugging and kissing them. And that's hard. Joe Biden knows every moment is precious I trust you Biden to get this virus under control? I'm Joe Biden and I approve this message. Seems like a really real smart relatable ad for a portion of the population that Joe Biden is trying to focus on. This is for all the people who were sold on idea that there was some normal around the Ben. During the trump years because there is no normal during trump that was false join me. Now for more on the different approaches, the two campaigns are taking is Adrian Shropshire. She's a veteran democratic strategist and executive director of black pack had a lot of experience in politics community organizing and ads as well and I just I was so struck by this ad agent because it's so understood in. So many ways given how terrible things are and given the kind of micro targeted median voter. He's trying to reach you know elderly couple or senior citizen couple in Florida. Yeah I mean the reality is that. Voters understand where we are. They understand the crisis that we're in. They do not. WanNa see campaign after campaign ad reminding them of our national. Right. I've said he focused move after folks. And what? The message that voters say that they want to hear is one of national unity. They WanNa hear message about a path forward how this mess is going to get fixed and I think the brilliant thing about that ad is that. while. It appears to be targeted at one segment of the electorate. The reality is that that is all of us, right? That is my entire family every Sunday night sitting zoom call, right so it is it is. There is a moment where the multipronged crisis that are facing the country are literally touching every single one of us and what's brilliant about the ad is that. You know it's it leads toward that unifying message right? It is it in every message quite frankly every ad I would hope to see that comes out of the campaign on is a way to unify to tell a message to tell a story that connects people about the moment that we're in. It's really if you think about it in this in this way having a national unity being a campaign strategy all by itself.
6 Ways to Survive Survivor Guilt
"Have. You ever made it through something awful or survived a disaster and instead of feeling good, you felt this heaviness in the pit of your stomach. When. Tragedy befalls those around us. But leaves US unscathed. Some of US feel really guilty. Welcome back to savvy psychologist I'm your host Dr J. Woo. Every week will help you meet life's challenges with evidence based research, a sympathetic ear and zero judgment. Today we talk about how to understand and cope with survivor guilt. Survivor. Guilt happens when a person perceives themselves to have done something wrong by surviving catastrophe or injustice while others died or suffered. Its intensity can. Shoot from bittersweet to all out despair. Survivor guilt is conventionally associated with large scale catastrophes like the battlefield or a plane crash, but it can actually pop up in more common situations to. For example, one study found that about sixty, five percent of cancer patient caretakers, experience survivor guilt. Anyone who has participated in a cancer support group will recognize the many layers of grief after the group loses one of its members, the survivors ask each other. You know, why did she die while we're still here? She was so kind and giving in behind to kids and grandkids. Why are we the lucky ones? In Two Thousand Twenty, survivor guilt might be even more salient than usual. For example of CO, Grad student from Florida despairing over the fate of his family and country while he studies physics and Germany watching the coronavirus number. Sore at home. He, says, I didn't do anything to deserve being safe. How can I sit here and play with equations all day when my community back home suffering? And what about survivors of economic devastation? A employees who keeps her job while her equally qualified co workers laid off in a large scale. Corporate rightsizing might feel uneasy about her unjustified privilege. Why not me? She asks, do I really deserve to have this job more than my co workers did? Finally and tragically. Survivor, guilt has been a well-known experience among war veterans for whom this experience can be Ashley a significant risk factor for PTSD and even suicidal thoughts and attempts. In a research study interview, one veteran recounts. The only thing I've really had issued dealing with was when I got wounded how I came away. Relatively Scott free. If you will, whereas the guy on my right died and the guy, my left can't lift his arm higher than this anymore. and. There are scores of examples, but in general survivors have some of these themes in their experience either alone or in combination. Theme, Number One is guilt about surviving. This is what we classically think of ask survivor guilt. If you remain safe while other suffered in an accident in a war and the covid nineteen pandemic by being granted asylum, you may feel you don't deserve your safety believe that you should have succumb to. Question, the wisdom and fairness of the world. And theme, number? Two is guilt over what you should have done. You might feel guilty that you didn't do enough. You should've known. You should've tried harder. You should've worn them, maybe try to rescue someone from addiction, for example, but failed, there's an over exaggerated sense of failure or responsibility. If only I had done something differently. Another theme number three is guilt over what you did. You may feel guilty for things. You did instead of feeling guilty about things you should have done. You may feel guilty for things you Ashley, did do for example from running without looking back for your friends while escaping the burning building or escaping poverty by leaving your family to go to college. Or. You may feel intense guilt for things that you did. That were mere coincidence. On the day, the music died in one, thousand, nine, hundred, thousand, nine, country music star Waylon. Jennings. was supposed to be on the plane that killed musicians buddy holly, the big bopper and Ritchie. Valens. When Jennings told Buddy, holly, he given up his seat as a fever to the flu stricken big bopper and was going to take the unheeded tour bus instead holly joked that he hoped Jennings, froze on the bus. Then twenty year old Jennings joke back while I, hope you're all plane crashes. In an interview decades. Later, he said God Almighty for years. I thought I caused it.
HereAfter with James Vlahos
"Hereafter is uses conversational ai to help people save and share their life stories interactive way if this is something we've been doing in older technologies for. Since time began practically I by oral history than recording in books than photos, videos, audio this anyway, we can sort of capture the essence of people and passed along to the next generation. As the idea of hereafter is, will we have haven't new canvas have a new medium we have boys computing. That's a way to. Get People's voice and then share their stories memories, dreams, songs, jokes, wisdom all of that in a back-and-forth manner. So it's non new longer just you a nerd experience of reading somebody's biography or memoir. It's even talked to Avatar of somebody a legacy Avatar. Hear their voice talking back. So. That's the the essence of the company as the inspiration was very personal. It was back a few years ago. My father had been diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. And we knew right away that he had a matter of months to live, and the first thing that happened was I did a district conventional oral history project with him, recording him talking all about his life and. Had these hours and hours recordings got them. All professionally transcribed had a binder full printed out as his words at great resource for this inert resource and that was right at the time that I was getting more involved with conversational AI and researching the book and realizing, Hey, you know there's a new way to. Share this information, and for me, there's a new way to sort of you know I was I was desperate like had Michael Hold on I'm losing my dad do I hold onto him in this? Admittedly, a very incomplete way compared to having the real person, but but some way to capture some part of his essence and keep it around. So I did that I created this conversational agent that you could access on Facebook Messenger. Messages with it, and you could get little videos and audio clips as well and I called Bath The dad bought, and that's really the. Basis that for everything discounts sense. and. So while I mean. Obviously. It's a very personal story. I'm just I'm just trying to think all the questions that come to my mind about this. What did you think about this? When you when you shared this idea with or did you share this with them? I did. It was very important for me to get his permission for some foremost but also the permission of other people in the family because I knew right away like I think this is a cool idea. I can see that it's a little bit of a weird idea. So I wanted to talk to everybody about it. and his own feeling about it like this was a man who was staring down data in some ways didn't care either way. Because you had bigger concerns. But he and he didn't get it either I was like a chat wechat by I don't get it But when he finally kind of came around to it, and when I finally demonstrated an early version to him. He really got it and he said I while like. Sounds like me those are things that actually would say or have said. And I like this idea that it could be shared with kids and grandkids in the future.

But we're told he is in grave condition. Love your city Councilman Curtis Jones was at the scene and says kids should feel safe. Play in their own neighborhoods have grandkids. That boy's age. And if you're not safe on your own ports, Where are you safe? No weapon has been recovered.
Charlie Kirk: Coronavirus stimulus
"And you have Schumer Pelosi. In Biden one hundred twenty five years, Charlie Kirk of failure, unmitigated failure, swap failure and I. Think of my kids. You met my son. He's twenty one years old. My daughter's eighteen and I would think about your America their America and when I say you know, live free or die, American, the world on the brink I'm not joking. And very specifically will be probably the biggest choice election by far in my lifetime, and maybe since eighteen sixty, and there's a lot at stake We can go through the issues if you want, but it's. It's there's there's not one issue we agree on that. I can think of for the most part yet, and you wrote this, and it just really sent chills down my spine. You wrote this book to sound an alarm as a warning. Warning to my fellow patriots about the left's undying commitment turn America into a land, our parents, founders and framers wouldn't recognize it. It's perfectly put, and that's the direction that they're headed on page twenty seven. You have a great part about how Ben Franklin says we ever republic. If you can keep it, can you talk more about how this truly is? A referendum election in some sense and the left is trying to do to our country. Well the the story about Franklin's interesting, because it's, it's the constitutional convention and somebody says he comes out one days, says, is it a monarchy republic republic? If you can keep it Reagan, I quote him off. When I give speeches, said Freedom Charlie and you know this is but one generation away from extinction. And you know when if you want understand if socialism is adopted if their stated goal is adopted America as we know, it then becomes unrecognizable look, I can understand psychologically. There's a component of maybe people that that have been indoctrinated in schools, and you're great at this because you're going in to hostile environments every day, and you're saying you know what there's another way of thinking here, so maybe the idea that people think Charlie that some things are oh, everything's going to be free and they're gonNA forgive my loans at I'll have a guaranteed government job guaranteed government food. How did obamacare workout now? We're GONNA have Medicare for all or or double down on the stupidity of Obamacare and guaranteed retirement. Guaranteed vacation sounds great. But simple math shows you that you'll never get there. And that's why in the Fourth Chapter of the book did this whole history of socialism which is a history of failure? The point is look at the issues. If if we're talking about law and order. They've cited in Portland in Seattle and new. York and Chicago with the radicals. Joe Biden his yet that I know of said one good thing about the ninety nine percent of cops protect and serve and put their lives on the line for us every day. You're right. Okay, so law and order taxes. He's pledging to raise your taxes through the roof. That will destroy the economy Then they're gonNA just add all the bureaucracy. The Donald Trump spent almost four years. Eliminating that'll be gone. That means nobody's GONNA WANNA DO Business. That's why the Biden Obama economy was so bad. Then you look at where now energy independent for the first time in seventy five years with a number, one producer of energy in the world will lose that for sure We'll shut down coal fracking. Oil Gas exploration production those tens of millions of jobs high paying jobs career jobs for people. Then it's about amnesty. Or the United Sanctuary states of America versus Border Security and law and order of never mind foreign policy. We haven't even touched that part yet, so. There's a lot at stake. If those plans stated plans are implemented. America will go down the past you know. The Trash bin of history as Reagan, said Freedom One generation away from extinction we will. It I shudder to think what will happen the three you and your children by kids, and and maybe one day grandkids. ARE READY FOR THAT And I love the framing, because as the founder said either we're GonNa live free and defendant right now, or we're gonNA. Have a country that you know. We don't WanNa live it, and that's really the framing. That is so important right now, and you talk about and I'm really pleased about this. Shawn because I think we have forgotten about the Russia hoax too quickly in. In the conservative movement, you have been the leader on this every night. You were covering it. You didn't let us forget you help. Muller Accountable, you had investigative journalism and it just seemed that an Oxana names, but other conservatives just kind of drifted away from like Oh. That's what happened happened. You have two chapters on this in the book. Can you talk about that? Yeah I mean I call it Charlie, the the biggest corruption abuse of power scandal in history and the Ukraine was oh. Okay, we failed with Muller after three years. We won't. We won't even bother with a special prosecutor not to I'm going backwards here but to get to Ukraine. You? Know they're talking about quid pro quos, but you have to ignore their presidential candidate on video saying you're not getting a billion US tax payer dollars unless you're fire. That prosecutor is named Shokhin. WHO's investigating my son Hunter who went on a and said? Do you have any experience in oil? No Gas, no energy, nope, any experience in Ukraine. Nope, why are you being paid millions? No, because you dad, so there was a quid pro quo and millions of dollars for the Biden I call crime family. That's exactly right, so. Listen and China's even worse. You get to this whole thing what we now know and I believe what's coming. It's like, and this is where the media's corrupt because. They're just the propaganda wing of all things democratic. Socialist. We now know and have all the evidence that we'd ever need is that they protected their favorite candidate. Hillary Clinton. For things you and I and everybody you know that follows you and you have a massive audience would. Literally never get away with. If you had subpoenaed emails Charlie Kirk and you decided to delete them, and you decided to acid. Wash your hard drive with something. I had never heard about bleeped bleach bit and bust up your devices with hammers. You'd go to jail. If you violated the espionage act, you'd go to jail. They protected her. Then the narrative began we now know began in August. We know crossfire hurricane representatives actually went to brief. President Trump General Flynn. Flynn on national security, but they were there to try and get information on trump and Russia, the most amazing part of this, because the Democrats and the media live for all these years is that they knew and they said and they wrote, and they even testified. There was never any evidence, but there was a dirty Russian dossier. And now we know even the New York Times acknowledged full full of Russian disinformation and that was used. And they were warned not to use it, but high ranking people abusing their power, wanting to take out candidate, trump, transition, team, trump, and then deep into the Presidency Donald Trump. They use the dirty Russian misinformation dossier to ruin Carter pages life and roomed his civil liberties and constitutional rights, but more importantly to spy on candidate trump, and then they had their insurance policy. The fact that the mob in the media ignores it is beyond comprehension. I have so I have two chapters. One is on the Russia hoax, and the other is on this whole impeachment witch hunt. And I want everybody in your audience to understand one thing here if I can get one point across. Yeah, they hate Donald Trump, but they hate us more. They think we are as Peter. Struck, said the smell by the way I probably shop at Walmart say money. Why not you have a woman I love Walmart I love COSCO's. I Love I love it all. And I've shopped there my whole life I mean people always stopped me when I'm in a grocery? So, what are you doing here? Shopping? Wa I like to eat a cracks me up. So but think about that. smelly Walmart Shoppers while irredeemable deplorables, wow! Bitter Americans as Obama said that WANNA cling to their God. I'm guilty their Second Amendment Rights Guilty Bibles and religion I'm guilty of that, too. But. It's contempt for your audience. It's contemporary my audience. It's because they knew better. And they will ling. This was an attempted coup. Now do I think there's going to be arrests and prosecutions I? Do spend much slower than any of us would have liked, but the evidence is overwhelming. It's incontrovertible sad actually that this could happen. That was going to be my follow up. Question Sean because when I travel and we get thousands of e mails a on this topic. When are people going to go to jail? And can you give me insight on this? Can you give us any clues any crumbs that we're starting to see from Durham? It's I call them. It's funny. You say crumbs because call them the the Attorney General Bar breadcrumbs. It's like Hansel and Gretel. Remember. We're we're trying to follow and see the trail exactly yeah. He did say that the president was spied on. It did happen illegally. The. Think about this. If you go before Judge Judy I wouldn't WANNA lot because Judge Judy I. I've met her once she'll eviscerate. You I watched her show. You. Don't go before a court. The information that you have not verified. It actually said at the top of a FISO Warren Charlie. It says verified. Okay. We now know the dossier was unverifiable. The sub source we now know, said this this bar talk. We were making this up. This was never meant for anything and again Hillary paid for it funneled money separate issue. And so, what is going to happen I don't have a crystal ball but I. do know all of the facts that are in the public. Are Enough to indict many of the names that your audience is most familiar with. I would argue. Komi McCabe struck page. I'd like to know a clapper. Brennan's role in all of this ends up being and and others. The more fascinating deep question is. Will they get to that January fifth twenty seventeen meeting inside the Oval Office? This is when member Biden said George Stephanopoulos Oh I. Don't know. Anything about this, you know this whole impeachment Russia thing. He was the one same. Bring up the Logan Act fifteen days later Susan Rice in that meeting did the Cya memo the day that Donald Trump was inaugurated. Obama in that meeting shot Sally Age by saying a He. He knew everything about the Kislyak Michael Flynn call. If we look. To sum it up. I think we're GONNA get there because the evidence. Is that overwhelming? If we don't. I fear for the country? Because of you. GonNa Raid Manafort's home predawn raid and you're going to raid Roger Stone's home. For lying to Congress by the all many of the names I mentioned were referred for the same crime and you're gonNA. Pull it twenty nine guys in tactical gear, frogmen and tip off CNN cameras and. Have a biased jury for person. We won't have equal justice and equal application of our laws, and worse than that Charlie is. We lose our constitution. Yes, all our laws are are predicated on next great document and some `perfect, but it creates the path to perfection at a more perfect union so. Long answers. I'M GONNA talk. Show I love it. No, this is what our audience needs to hear, and and thank you for that and look I I completely agree because if we do not have people and I, say this as carefully as I can in handcuffs for what they did Donald Trump then I I will lose faith in the American justice system I. Don't want that and I don't want revenge I don't retribution I want people to be held accountable and I would want the same if someone did this to Barack Obama because it should never happen to a leader ever. Yes. and. They've gone after every single trump friend confidant, and yet if you oppose Donald Trump you get different treatment, talk a lot about the constitution in your book and the founding of our country, Sean going to be honest, I've been very let down by some of these supreme. Court decisions lately Can you comment on that and the importance to get more people like Kavanagh? Who's actually ruled brilliantly? Unlike John Roberts. I! I'm a little. I don't know what's happening. Roberts I have my theory I guess I have my sources people that. have their own ideas based on some knowledge? For whatever reason and I think this goes back to the obamacare decision. He has allowed. How the court appears to influence his decision making. I also sense with no evidence whatsoever. You're not a big fan of president trump, but that should not come into his thinking. Now. If getting rid of bureaucracy and lowering taxes and energy, independence, and securing our borders, and law and order are all part of this election. Let me tell you another big part of it. And it's you know we're taping this ninety. Whatever days away from the Election Day, I what about and we got asked. What about the Supreme Court? Yes, I go through a whole list I. Forget what paid maybe sixty seven I forget. A. In the book. Of. All the things Democrats would do if they're getting power one, is they? WanNa, stack the courts. Get rid of the Electoral College. And I. What, they're saying they. WanNa do is scary. They used to hide it Charlie. When I every single Liberal Democrat running for office, they would run to the left in the primary. They race back to the center, but you knew they wanted the left. There now openly embracing the most radical elements in the country and you know. Unfortunately we're watching it all. Play out nightly on TV and and that sad what I see happening when I think we have to remind a trump supporters that these are not trump appointed justices, a gorsuch I think ruled incorrectly on one ruling. That's it besides that gorsuch and cavenaugh have been tremendous and terrific verses Roberts. I just think we have to give the audience a sense. Sense of continued conviction that the trump appointed justices will continue to rule correctly and Clarence. Thomas and you know the the Thomas Family. They get no credit at all. I mean what he has done. And can you comment on that? 'cause I, E, you've actually been you open my eyes to that like eight years ago and I never learned about Clarence Thomas as a high schooler until you I mentioned it just as a quick aside on his incredible career. I like to do on TV and antidote on radio, too. Sometimes I call it the Hannity history, lesson 'cause I lived through all of this. I know this is going to see. You're not even thirty three, but my radio journey started in nineteen eighty-seven crazy right. Now on my twenty fifth year of Fox, I didn't think I last two. So I feel very blessed. As a side note if you haven't read my grandfather's son. Which is about Clarence Thomas is life. It's amazing. But. You know it's interesting because him and Scalia. To my opinion, my to most favorite justices in my lifetime. Scalia this incredible wit and genius and understanding and. They got a little acerbic side to when when he was questioning Clarence Thomas always set by quietly. What they called a high tech lynching at the time, the more modern. Let it. You gotTA. Remember Yeah. And you know. It was then Senator Ted Kennedy you know Robert Bork's America the borking of America. That was Clarence Thomas. Now we see it more recently cavenaugh. It exposes. The, who is Joe Biden? Who is his team? Because Clarence Thomas and Justice Scalia or the people we need on that court. We call them constitutionalists or originalists, the original intent, not people that would sight foreign law as liberal justices have done or not people that feel that they can rule by judicial Fiat and dictate or legislate from the bench. Democrats always wanted the court to do that which they could never. Do legislatively or win at the ballot box and that's why they want. We call them. Activists Justices Clarence Thomas. has shown a fidelity to the Constitution at the Antony Scalia. That is beyond enviable And the differences styles always interesting, too because Justice Thomas will always be quiet. That's very few questions. Anthony Scalia was in there in a wrestling with people. I don't know about John Roberts. I can't get into it, but I do believe the next president United States is a very good chance. You have a lot of older justices may want to retire. And I think that the next this election in just three short months. That's on the ballot and that's that's generational now. And Sean I think we have to pressure the Biden campaign to do what trump did and release a list of justices I mean president trump was so transparent and Joe Biden hasn't done it yet. Intentionally, of course, because he'll probably put repeated to lieber something on the United States Supreme Court I mean as horrifying as that might be so in two two quick closing question Sean and thank you for being so generous with your time anchorage, everyone you know. Know go by live, free or die. the first is this. Can you just talk about? We are heading into the election. A lot of trump supporters. They're failed. They're falling victim. They suppression pulse I wish that wasn't the case, but it seems like the memory of two thousand sixteen as faded where people forget. We were down by double digits. Can you just give a little vote of confidence to some of our listeners out there? That think we're just losing. I WANNA. Give the vote of confidence, but I want people to feel this way. I want people to think I'll use a football analogy that our mutual friend Linda that you know. Who's your biggest fan? My radio producer? He's amazing. Amazing, but she doesn't even know how many points you get a touchdown, so I'm giving these football analogies. I, want this election. I want people to feel the way I feel which is. We're on our own twenty. Two minutes to go. We have no time outs We're down by six. We got a cross. The plane marched down the field, cross the plane and hit the extra point to win. So if people feel a sense of genuine urgency and worry and concern, I'm cool with that because fear often as a great motivator, not irrational field fear, but if people do not vote, you will get the government that they're telling you. They're going to give you believe. That that is their agenda. To be a Republican and win. You GotTa always use this analogy got to run the table I gotTA. Get Florida Georgia North Carolina can't win without Ohio. No Republican's ever become president without it right? You got hold Iowa then you got pick off Pennsylvania Wisconsin hopefully Michigan maybe MINNEA- Minnesota will be play. Maybe the city of Arizona will be in play. By Joe Biden reference for those of you. That didn't get. We got a hold Arizona Gopher Nevada New Mexico. New Hampshire and Maine's second congressional district. If every single mom, this is a battle cry. You started out this interview with this. I wrote this book not because I like writing books. My last book I donated every Penny I made to charity I don't care. It's not that. This is a tipping point. Charlie this is I, don't. See if these policies are implemented how America recovers. Irreparable harm the to the rule of law to our courts to our economy, they want to wipe out the lifeblood of of the world's economy. This this promise of socialism and I go into such detail about how it's always failed. Here's a quick socialism of example. Member obamacare. Keep your doctor keep your plan. Save on average twenty five hundred dollars a year per family right? Okay. Millions lost their doctors. Millions lost their plans. We're all paying about two hundred percent more and add to that. Forty percent of Americans almost forty percent have only one obamacare Biden Carriage James Choice now. How did they do with that promise? Medicare is going broke. How did they do it? That promised social security. Charlie hate the break this here. He paying into it. You probably won't get it I. Barely Skate through, and they might give me ten cents until they means tested and then take it back, How does it? How did Liberal government work in New York City with all the anarchy cutting a billion dollars, so please? How's IT WORKING IN CHICAGO? All. These liberal cities have where the violence we've been talking about takes place. They all have one thing in common. They've been run by Liberal Democrats for decades right. Most of these states have been run into the ground by Liberal Democrats for decades. If you WANNA know what America will look like if Biden Bolshevik Bernie. Pelosi Schumer and Bozo. That team gets place look at new. York state and city look at Chicago the City Illinois. The State Look at California. Look at Oregon. Look at Portland, the city. Look at Seattle. Look at the state of Washington. Yes. And I. Love this country too much. You know it's an all hands on deck moment and Every everyone of you've got this connection with younger people in this country. You have this incredible. A credible platform you built, and it's become powerful and meaningful and transformative to the country, and you're going out there, and you're fighting on these college campuses and you. You know it's not easy to be in the middle of a I call it a shift. Show all the time, but let's well put, but you do it. And it's freedom works. Every time you give up freedom for security, you lose your freedom because the security that they're offering. These promises that can never ever be fulfilled. In America. The land. I'll close with this unless you want to go further I can keep going the. Barry Farber who was a mentor of mine. Just recently passed away like ninety ninety one. And he always said there's never been a country in the history of mankind that has accumulated more power and abused at less than the United States well I add. A country in the history of mankind that has accumulated more power abused at less, but used it to advanced human condition. The reason America is great and exceptional. If I can say that today, it's not perfect, but it's great. An exceptional is because of its people, and because of the fundamentals of liberty and freedom. So that? Natural rights versus government or rights, natural rights come from God doubt by our Creator. Life Liberty pursuit of happiness while you can't pursue happiness these days in Chicago New York Moreland Seattle. So there's a lot on the line. I love your audience. I'm so thankful for all you're doing, and you've got a great team that you building review and you're out there fighting the fight and I just urge you guys. Just fight like your country depends on it. Because America's, we know it. It's all hanging in the balance. Yet was Sean. You've been so generous the last quick thing I defend the president all the time personally as a person. Can you comment on that because I've had the opportunity to meet him? not as much as you obviously and get to know him, but a lot of people here misrepresentations in lies about who he is as a human being. Let's close on this note. Can you just mention one or two things that that people can take away from that? You know first of all. It's interesting. Nobody seems to understand Donald trump yet. They don't want to understand. I mean Donald Trump. The Dog Bites the beasts, things you feeling sad or get cancer. You Complain Trump. I mean that's how saying the leftist. But here's a guy that is so unique he this guy is like a soon nami force of energy like I've never met my life. The most distinct and unique quality he's had is as president. You mentioned the Supreme Court. He put those people that he said he put. He cut the bureaucracy as he said he'd caught, and he cut the taxes as he said he'd cut. He did the North Dakota. A keystone pipelines Anwar Likey said he would. He's building the wall or almost four hundred miles. A wall by the by election will be over four hundred miles. He found a way it was. It was an uphill climb He said he wanted to pull us out of foreign conflicts, but not back away from evil defeated. The Caliphate took out. Baghdadi and Associates took out Sola Mani took out the Al. Qaeda leader in Yemen. So? What makes him special and unique in terms of presidency is that he is who you see is who you get. The guy that's fights on twitter is the guy that's fighting for a better trade. Deal the guy that fights. Against Liberal Democrats and the media mob is the same guy is fighting to keep his promises that to me makes him the most unique transformative political figure in our lifetime. And Right now. The. We tip the scales. You have a choice. It's never been a bigger choice. He will keep his promises. Coronas been a little bit of a curve ball to the world, but even that ten days after the first case, the only guy that I know of thought about a travel ban will be donald trump. They were teaching at the time and Joe Binder Biden was call them Sinophobic, so he's a man of his word. He's a man that will fight to his last dying breath for this country and the promises he made, and that makes them in my view very transformative. Men will.

"grandkid" Discussed on WSJ Your Money Briefing
"Leaving an IRA to your grandkids seems easy enough not anymore now. That uncle Sam wants to get involved and it could cost the younger generation dearly a yearly when they cash out their inheritance and Wall Street Journal Tax Reporter. Laura Saunders is here to discuss so Laura what are the current rules regarding. IRA's that are left left to heirs. Well it there are several rules as you might imagine us always complicated. But it's one thing if you leave an IRA to an air like a spouse but if if you leave it to a non spouse air a grandchild then they're these really favorable rules. They've been in effect for maybe twenty years that say the younger air could take the money out over his or her lifetime. So if GRANDPA dies and leaves an IRA array to his six year old grandson. Then the child might have another seventy or eighty years to take out that money and meanwhile it it can grow tax free now they have to take out a little bit every year but it can go on for a very long time and this is a wonderful benefit so now congress is stepping in in in the house and the Senate wanted to change those rules. Each bit is a bit different. The has bill has passed with bipartisan support. So it has the upper hand in this and we don't I don't know what's going to happen with the Senate but the Senate misuse me. The House would say that. If you're not a spouse and you inherited an IRA you would have to take the money Out In no longer than ten years ten years so it would not only forty or whatever the the child's projected life span banias but over ten years. Ten years tax-free Well it depends a roth. IRA withdrawals are always tax free and they would stay. Tech's re a traditional. IRA The money is taxed but you see it compresses. Either of the time you have to let it grow tax free or perhaps if you're leaving it to a grandchild ranch in the grandchild has to take it out in ten years that would raise the tax rate UNA traditional. IRA because so much money is coming out every year. Now critics of the current rule all that allows a grandchild or an air. That's not a spouse to take money out over the course of sixty seventy years essentially the the life of that person. They've said this this kind of tilts toward benefiting very wealthy. Well yes it does and most of us or are going to need our savings from Iras and Roth Iras to fund Dr Retirement. This is for people that have access funds. The you know and people have charged Mitt Romney and people like that we know that he had one hundred million dollar. That would take advantage of this rule but congress allowed it in the first place. It was not something that people are just doing. Outside the law and what Congress Giveth Breath Congress can take us away. Yes that's exactly right and one of the things here. Is that what you're doing is you are lessening the lifespan of tax. Free Dollars. So clearly Congress wants to cash in here and and take share. They have other things they want to do with the money in this would raise a good bit of revenue. I think it's about two billion dollars over ten years now. This will be quite a shock for people who have been putting away diligently for decades with an eye on their grandchildren and the next generation all of a sudden rules change at the last minute. Well exactly we talked to a man named Mr Folk who was a middle manager at a railroad and Mr Foch was a very good investor. Astor and very very good saver. He calls himself a cheapskate and he managed to take care of his his wife and his children and to have a roth. IRA worth more than a million dollars projected for each grandchild and he's very eager for each four four grandchildren and so he but he feels that Congress has changed the rules in the middle of the game. This is just really not fair. And and there are other experts who worry because retirement planning and and saving a such a long game that It could discourage other people from saving in various ways because Congress could just do anything at once and now the house rule calls for the change to go into effect on the first of January next year. Well under it's called the secure act and it would take effect for deaths after January one twenty twenty but this is bottled up in Congress right now. We don't quite know where it's going in the Senate that is not acting in their slightly different rules in the Senate The problem is that if it's after January one then people who die before January one in her get full advantage of the current system. But I don't think you'd WanNa die in order to take advantage of that that's a whole different conversation. And for the air's this can result in significantly less money they would inherit over time. We worked with an accountant to figure out what the cost to. Mr Folks. Grandchildren would be and we looked at a ten year stretch versus a sixty year stretch if you took the money out at the end of ten years. And then you reinvested in pay taxes on it for the other fifty fifty years the accountants calculations indicate that that the difference for a twenty three year old. WHO inherits a one million dollar Roth? IRA would be receiving twenty three million dollars over sixty years with the stretch rules as they are currently and versus twenty twenty three million versus sixteen million about thirty percent less over the same sixty year period. Wow seven million dollars comes off.
