A highlight from Joseph Arthur (continued)
"Welcome to The Eric Metaxas Show. Do you like your gravy thick and rich and loaded with creamy mushrooms? If no one was looking, would you chug the whole gravy boat? Chug! Chug! Chug! Chug! Stay tuned. Here comes Mr. Chug -a -lug himself, Eric Metaxas. Hey folks. Welcome to hour two. I'm talking to Joseph Arthur, singer, songwriter. We're talking about so much. But one of the things that intrigued me was I realized when the Nazis, the thought police shut you down, you were really, and are, you're well known, especially in the music world. You've worked with everybody. Peter Gabriel championed you early on, like 25 plus years ago. I was good friends with Lou Reed. He was my brother. I loved him a lot. And you obviously lived on the Lower East Side. Yeah, we would hang out every day. I mean for a time, not every day of his life. There was a period there. I've been in bands with Jeff Ament from Pearl Jam, like you mentioned Danny Harrison and Ben Harper. Also Peter Buck and I have a band, Arthur Buck. But the thing is, me speaking outside of the narrative, that would frighten most people in the music business. It's so strange because I don't care what other people think to the degree that I could possibly have an emotional reaction from it. It just doesn't strike me that way. So I don't understand that in other people. I could disagree with you, but it wouldn't make me say, okay, I no longer want to go bowling with you because you think something different. You could tell me I love Biden, and I'd be like, okay, I think you're not seeing things clearly. But that would just be my opinion, and who cares? We can still be friends. Seems like you're a big -hearted person, and I think that those of us who would say we're Christians or whatever, we're supposed to be big -hearted and open and understand that there are going to be people that are going to disagree with us, and we're supposed to love them and whatever. But that's what's so interesting to me is that when we're talking about this kind of stuff, how people wanted to cancel you or cancel me or tons of people that I've had on this program, they're just like, we're going to crush that person like a bug. We do not want them to have a voice. So they took this, you know, the air taxi show was on YouTube. We had a huge following, and it was completely wiped out because I had Naomi Wolf on to talk about the vaccine. Love Naomi Wolf. I've had her on my show before, too. She's amazing. And she's been on the show many times. But just the idea that we had a conversation about vaccine mandates, not even the vaccine, but the mandates, and they were like, And you thought, okay, who would do that? Would nice people totally shut down a show because we had a conversation? No. And also, nice people shouldn't hate you for having a different opinion. But this is a media invention, and media keeps doing this and keeps influencing people this way. Like, for instance, if you take something like gender reassignment surgery for kids, say you think that's a bad idea. Like, you don't think 12 -year -olds should have gender reassignment surgery. I personally think that's a bad idea. I don't think kids are ready to make that kind of permanent decision about something like that. Because they're not. At that age, that's my opinion. But then somebody would say, oh, that means you are intolerant of gay and trans people. And that is not true. That's conflating things that are not true. And it's happening now. But what's happening with Israel -Palestine right now, too, the same thing and a different thing. If you think, you know, Israel's response to what they're doing to Gaza right now is not right or not what they should be doing, that means you're pro -Hamas and that you hate Jewish people. And those things don't mean the same thing. You might think, hey, I don't think that's the right way to respond. That doesn't mean you hate Jewish people. I don't think kids should have gender reassignment surgery. It doesn't mean you hate gay people. But that's what the media does. They go, this means this. And then you should hate. It's all very black and white and extreme. There's no room for nuance. In some ways, it's not necessarily even the media. It's social media. Really what you're talking about is a mob mentality. It's a mob mentality without nuance. And I see both sides doing it. It's like, why are you doing that? Like, we are sensitive beings that can think deeply about things. These are complicated situations that require a lot of nuanced conversation. And it's not this black and white thing. Well, OK, you know what I mean? It's crazy. I mean, it's so interesting because in our lifetimes, we haven't seen this. And so suddenly a few years ago, I mean, talking about the election, like, I mean, I just saw clearly, I said, wait a second. This looks fishy. It's fishy to say the least. Even if I'm wrong. Right. You're not going to tell me I can't talk about it. I mean, you can't say it looks fishy. You can't say it looks fishy. Biden got more votes than Obama in his heyday by a lot like that guy. I mean, that looks fishy. You know, I'm sorry if you're like crazy because that looks fishy. I want to tell you, this is this is to me the worst part of it in a way. Right. Right. Is what is it? What this kind of stuff has done is it has made people cynical. In other words. Yeah. There are people who say like, well, yeah, the election was stolen, like whatever. Who cares? And you think, who cares? How emotionally dead are you that you don't care that, you know, the greatest nation in the history of the world that has freedom where every person is supposed to have a voice. It's this beautiful idea. And you don't even care if some people just said, well, not this time that, you know, Trump is Hitler and we're going to do whatever it takes. And you think, well, no, that's that's not really that's up to the American voter to decide. And they said, well, we don't we no longer trust the American voter. We don't care. It's wild. So do you still you still like Trump, right? Do I still like Trump? Should we not talk about that right now? I love Trump. I mean, I think he's he's he's amazing. Does his vaccines stance bug you out? Well, look, just because I would vote for somebody or like somebody doesn't mean I agree with them on everything. And there is zero doubt that on that issue, I would disagree. I don't know where he stands on that now. In other words, because a lot of his base, I think, has given him a ton of pushback so that he's but, you know, he's not the kind of guy to easily say, oh, yeah, I made it wrong. It's a beautiful, beautiful job. Yeah. No, listen, I almost find it funny because he's not he doesn't seem capable of saying like, oh, yeah, I got that wrong. Which he should. Obviously, he should. But no, I mean, I think that I mean, I said this before, but I think, listen, people can can think what they want. But I, I do think it's true that Trump is a very different person than he was in 2016. In other words, the stuff that has happened, he was very naive. He came in like, OK, I was elected president. Now I get to. And it's kind of like when you think of Lincoln. You know, he wanted people that opposed him politically to be in his cabinet because he thought, you know, I want to get along with everybody. So Trump did that. And he invited in naively some people who were running. Yeah, well, thought he's just one of the worst examples, but there's many examples of people that he just said, like, you know, you know, come on in and we can all reason together. And he didn't know that they were not there to reason together. They were there to take him out. And so I think he's been so relentlessly attacked that I think he's kind of awake to this stuff in a way that he was not at all. Let's hope so. Yeah, well, I mean, we'll see. But I mean, that's my that's my sense. But but it's just it's interesting because we were talking about the vaccine, talking about election fraud. Trump is another one of those triggers for people that they can't have a conversation. They just go crazy. Yeah, it's nuts. And I'm not interested in, like, arguing with somebody. Again, it's a media invention. You know, it's it's the media. We're finding out how susceptible humanity is to propaganda in ways that I don't think we could have fathomed. There's a story of like Russian people coming over here and going like, oh, yeah, like your propaganda is so much better in America than in Russia. Yeah. And the guy goes like, oh, well, wait a minute. Russia is famous for propaganda. It's like, yeah, the difference is in Russia. We all know it's propaganda. Wow. Right. And and we got to we got to go to a break. We'll be right back. I'm talking to Joseph Arthur, singer, songwriter, radio host. We'll be right back.

Fresh update on "harrison" discussed on WTOP 24 Hour News
"Breaking news on WTOP. A 17 year old has been arrested for carjacking an FBI agent last month in DC and we now know more information about that attack. Devante Lynch is being charged as an adult for carjacking a woman FBI agent on November 29th. According to court documents, the victim says she parked and exited her vehicle in the 100 block of 12th Street Northeast when two men knocked her to the ground. She then reports becoming oriented and seeing a man pointing a gun at her while she laid on her back. The suspects then demanded keys, her phone and drove away in her car. About 15 minutes later, the car was found less than mile a from where it was taken. Lynch was arrested at his home on Monday and is being held without bond. Police are continuing to look for the second person involved. Cheyenne Corrine, WTLP news. All right, more details coming are out tonight as well about what took place inside an Arlington home moments before it exploded last night. The duplex on North Burlington Street blew up about 830 after nearly a standoff four -hour between police and a man inside. Based on the preliminary investigation of this incident, we believe that resident the of the home, James Yu, 56, of Arlington, is the involved suspect. The Orange County Police Department does not have prior documented interactions with the suspect at this address other than two calls for service for loud noise over the past couple years. That's Arlington County Police Chief Andy Penn. Police say Yu is believed to be dead. The standoff started just before five yesterday afternoon after police say Yu fired more than 30 flares from his window over the Blue Mont neighborhood. Police say officers eventually broke down the front door and that's when Yu started shooting a gun. Officers deployed what police call non -flammable chemical munitions and a short time later the home exploded. Several Arlington County Police officers were hurt. They have minor injuries. Police and federal agencies are investigating what led to that explosion. Neighbors in Arlington, meanwhile, tell WTLP's Nick Iannelli something that always seemed a bit off about that house. The house that exploded had a strange reputation says Melissa Hernandez who lives right down the street. It was always the house that you know no one ever saw anyone go in or out. and she says the windows were always covered with paper. It was just white paper like butcher's paper almost over all the windows all the doors and then a no trespassing sign. Where was the no trespassing It was in the front yard. Arlington County Police say they don't know much about the man who lived there, James Yu. Only neighbors that had called police a couple of times in recent years complaining about too much noise at Yu's house. You had a history posting of paranoid rants on social media and the FBI says Yu contacted the agency numerous times through phone online calls tips and letters claiming that he was the victim of fraud.

It is a beautiful Wednesday afternoon here outside Chicago, and there is a lot to talk to. Of course, I am Matt Verderam, and I am joined, as always, by Gilberto Manzano. Gil, how you doing? I'm doing well. A lot of blowouts, I seem like, in week four of the NFL, but, you know, other than that, another terrible Monday Night Football game, I'm okay. I feel like I would start that way. I don't know why. Yeah, the Monday Night game was a travesty, and the Giants, um, I don't know, at some point, how you don't just max protect the rest of the game. I mean, they couldn't block anybody. It was unbelievable. The Seahawks looked like the 85 Bears in that game. 10 sacks on Jones, 11 overall. But, yeah, you're right. I write that column in real time on Sunday where I'm updating throughout the day. It was funny the first couple of weeks because, really, very few blowouts happened, so I had to wait right up until the end to write a lot of those, and it was kind of a fire drill. Last week, that was not the case. Last week, I wrote a ton of them about halfway through the third quarter and then just updated the stats, although I did get burned doing that with the Bears and the Broncos because the Bears are the Bears. I almost got burned doing that with the Rams and the Colts, but the Rams held on to win, so all's well that ends well in L .A. But, you know, look, I want to steer, we're going to get to the five best games of the week, as we always do, and we're going to talk about the biggest story, which involves the Dolphins for a second straight week, and we're going to get to all that stuff, including some stuff here about the Broncos. But I want to lead off here with some of the week five storylines that I find interesting, I think are probably things that we're going to be talking about here for a while, and one of them is, C .J. Stroud last week played really, really well for Houston, and he's played well throughout the year. They're 2 -2. They just plowed Pittsburgh, 30 -6. Stroud was aggressive. He went downfield. He threw on the run. He did a fantastic job. Conversely, the Panthers are one of two teams that are 0 -4 on the year, and Bryce Young, coming off the injury, didn't play in week three, didn't play in week four. He struggled against Minnesota. It was probably the best game he's played to this point, but still very much everything underneath, everything short. The offense only accounted for six points. How pumped should Texans fans be about Stroud, and then on the other side of it, how worried should everybody in Carolina be about Bryce Young? Yeah, for Houston, let's put it this way. If you would have asked me a month ago, hey, you, Matt, telling me, we're going to start the show off with C .J. Stroud and the Texans in week five. What do you think about that? I would have laughed at you. So that shows you that the Texans are in the spotlight. They have a good quarterback, and it's funny how when you find that next quarterback, that star quarterback, you tend to get more eyeballs, more attention, more headlines. So if you're Houston, you're excited. You're ecstatic, because we all remember what happened with Deshaun Watson. That got ugly. That got messy. Now you can maybe somehow move on from that. It's still kind of a similar regime, right, different head coach, but still front office people, same owner, stuff like that. But now it feels like a fresh start. D 'Amico Ryan is doing a great job. So no interceptions, Matt. That is amazing to see. He's averaging 300 yards per game passing. So if you're Houston, you're really excited. Now with the Panthers, you're wondering, did you do something wrong? You traded up. You had the first pick. You had dibs on anybody you wanted. Anthony Richardson doing well at the same time as C .J. Stroud. And Matt, that race for Offensive Rookie of the Year, Pukunukuo, Anthony Richardson, C .J. Stroud, it's going to be tough. But if you're the Panther, you're probably asking yourself, what did we do wrong, or is it us? And you see reports about the Panthers going all in, the trade deadline, getting a wide receiver. They get some offensive lineman back. Maybe they're not panicking, but you're probably scratching your head wondering what did we do wrong here? Is it us? Is it the quarterback? Who knows? I mean, yeah, going all in for Carolina at this point is crazy. The only reason you wouldn't do that is because you don't have your first round pick. It belongs to Chicago anyway, so you're not gaining anything by being awful. The Bears are hoping they don't do that. The Bears are hoping they sit tight and have the worst pick in the draft, or the number one pick in the draft. Look, to start off with Stroud, okay, he has been everything Texans fans could have possibly wanted. As you mentioned, no picks. He's got six touchdown passes, which ranks him tied for 10th. He ranks fourth in passing yardage with just over 1 ,200. He's only behind Tua, Stafford, and Cousins. He is averaging eight yards in an attempt, only behind Tua and Brock Purdy. His QBR is 15th, which is okay, that's fine, but he's been fantastic. He's doing this with a bad offensive line that's been shuffling pieces. Tunzil's been in and out of the lineup. This is a team with Nikko Collins and Tank Dell that he's strong to, and Dalton Schultz. With all due respect to those guys, we're all good players. None of them are number one guys, guys who are going to take over a game. And he's doing it with a new coaching staff. D 'Amico Ryan is what I think has done a hell of a job. He's defensive -minded, right? Sloake comes in as the offensive coordinator, and this is his first time in that seat. The coming Texans into this season had won 10 games in three years combined. The last three years, they've won 10 games. I don't know if they're going to get to 10, but I've got to tell you, if you're the Texans, this is by a mile the most fun you've had in a long time, whether or not it was on the field or the off -the -field ugliness with Deshaun Watson. And I've got to tell you, if you look at the Texans' schedule, and part of this, of course, is the division they play in, it's not exactly Murderers Row here. Falcons, Saints, Panthers, Bucks. Next four weeks, you'll get the four NFC South teams. You win any of those games. Then you play at the Bengals, which normally you'd go, that's a brutal game, but who knows right now? The Bengals, what the hell is going on with them, right? Who knows what brothers you can play in that game? Then after that, the Cardinals, the Jags at home, the Broncos at home, the Jets, the Titans, the Browns, the Titans, the Colts. I mean, does any team in the league have a more favorable schedule than that? So I love what I'm seeing. I love what they're doing. They look great. I'm really happy for the fans in Houston. On the flip side, with Young, I think it's fair to say both. You've got to be patient. It's three games into his career because he missed a one. On the other hand, yeah, there's definitely cause for concern here. He is averaging 4 .9 yards in attempt, which ranks 33rd in the NFL. There are 32 teams. He ranks 33rd. And he is almost a full yard behind Gardner Minshew, who ranks 32nd. He is dead last of all quarterbacks who qualify for QBR. 33 qualify, he's dead last to 24 .9. He has two touchdowns and two picks and yardage per game, not just total yardage because that would be unfair to him, obviously. Yardage per game, you'll look at him and he's way at the bottom, man. The only guys he's ahead of right now are Anthony Richardson, Gardner Minshew, of course, both on the Colts, and Dorian Thompson Robinson, who played essentially one game. So you'll look at this and go, okay, we know the line hasn't been good, but Frank Reich should be a good coach for him. He's a former NFL quarterback. He's coached a lot of different quarterbacks in his recent years with the Colts. It has not gone well. The offensive line has not been good. I'm not ready to push the panic button yet on Bryce Young, but I think it's fair to say that this has been ugly to start. And if you're Carolina, you're looking at Richardson, you're really looking at Stroud going, did we screw this up? Because it doesn't look great early. Yeah, man, that's a good point about the coaching side. You thought that Carolina Panthers bringing in so many well -known coaches. Josh McCown, former quarterback. Thomas Brown did good things with the Rams and Sean McVay. And like you mentioned a couple of weeks ago, they keep putting the training wheels on this guy. Let him go out there, let him learn from his mistakes and getting a better flow. And it does suck having the injury. You miss a game. You're trying to come back against Minnesota. Brian Flores doing the safety blitz with Harrison Smith. I'm sure that could fluster you a little bit. But then you mentioned it with Houston. It's kind of the same thing. The surroundings are not ideal for Houston either, and C .G. Stroud is doing well. And the thing I'll end here for the point on the rookie is like, are we seeing C .G. Stroud just being the most prepared quarterback because he's so accurate, a bigger size? You just get the ball to your playmakers and let them do their thing. Or is this like the beginning of Joe Burrow? Is it more like Dak Prescott? And I can't tell with C .G. Stroud because he's so good at the fundamentals and being accurate. With Anthony Richardson, you see a higher ceiling, but he's not quite there as C .G. Stroud. So I just wonder, does the ceiling get higher? Is this Joe Burrow kind of level of accuracy? Yeah, it's going to be very interesting to see it all play out. But Stroud has been absolutely fantastic.

Plus, Eddie always has a few opinions on everything else that's going on in the world of boxing. We'll get to that a little bit later. But it was a busy weekend in boxing. Canelo Alvarez successfully defended his 168 -pound titles. What's the future for him? What's the future for Jermell Charlo, who quite frankly didn't show up in this fight? I thought it was an embarrassing performance by Jermell Charlo who talked a good game, made us believe or made some people believe he was going to win or at least compete, and then just moved around the ring for 12 rounds to survive a decision. We'll talk about that and much more with Keith Idec, senior writer with BoxingScene .com. He was out in Las Vegas. Keith, let's just start there. Compare your expectations for Canelo Charlo with how the fight played out. Chris, what did you think of the way that fight played out in the ring? Chris, I'm not in any way surprised that Canelo Alvarez won. Of course, Charlo was moving up two weight classes. Canelo, although he hadn't looked all that great in his previous three fights, said repeatedly that he would look better because his surgically repaired left wrist was now 100 percent. He could train with it, et cetera. So I felt like Canelo would win the fight. But I did think honestly it was going to be a competitive fight. And the thing that really surprised me more than anything, Chris, which I think you just alluded to, is Jermell Charlo simply did not come to win this fight. He seemed to come to go 12 rounds with Canelo to avoid getting knocked out. And the reason that surprised me more than anything, Chris, is because that's not who Jermell Charlo is. That's not who he has been throughout his career. He has fought and promoted his fights and done interviews with a chip on his shoulder that never goes away. And it has served him very well because he's always been defiant and disproving sometimes imaginary enemies. But, you know, he has always used that to motivate him. And in this case, he really didn't. I thought that he would be able to flip that switch on fight night, although throughout the promotion he sort of behaved the way that he behaved once the bell rang. Like he didn't really believe that he could win the fight and that, you know, this might have been too much for him in the sense that he was moving up two weight classes and fighting a big puncher and a dangerous guy. And that's the way he approached the entire fight. You know, Derek James was on him between rounds. Hey, you're losing this fight. You need to do more. You need to pick it up. And he just never really responded to that. And again, I can't really emphasize enough, Chris, how surprised I am that he didn't try to win. Because, you know, this is a very prideful guy. This is a guy, again, who has repeatedly proved people wrong or tried to prove people wrong and used that as a way to drive him to great heights. Because, Chris, he's the undisputed 154 pound champion, the first one of the four belt era. He has avenged the two blemishes or the two previous blemishes on his record. He's avenged both of those. He knocked out Tony Harrison in their rematch. And although in his first fight against Tony Harrison, I didn't really think that he lost. It was a very close competitive fight. Didn't necessarily think that he lost. But he came back and avenged it with an 11th round knockout. You could certainly argue that he'd lost his first fight to Brian Costanio. But then came back and knocked Costanio out as well in his rematch. So he had taken care of the two blemishes on his record. This is just something that's just going to, you know, it's a blemish on his record that is never going to go away. And it might, unfortunately, be for him, the fight that people remember him for most. Because he just did not come to make this a competitive fight. And there's really no excuse for that. Unless he was hurt and he's not using that as an excuse. Unless his left hand really wasn't 100%. Because it was his first fight since he broke two bones in his left hand last December. Unless that was a factor and he's just not using that as an excuse, which would be commendable to hide that if that is the case. Just didn't look like he came to win the fight. And there's really no two ways about that. I don't really see how you could have seen that any other way. I spoke to Tim Zu yesterday. Did an interview with him for his upcoming fight with Brian Mendoza. And he echoed, we basically agreed on everything that Tim Zu said. And he felt, he was less harsh on Charlo than I thought he was going to be, honestly, because they have this rivalry. But he said the same thing. He was just surprised that we didn't get the A -level Charlo that we've gotten in most of his fights. And the kind of, you know, tenacious, ferocious guy that we usually see. Yeah, Charlo wants credit for going the distance. He doesn't get it in my book. He wants credit for not getting knocked out. He doesn't get it in my book. If you take on a challenge like this, I don't care if you move up one -way class, two -way classes, three -way classes. You have an obligation to try to win. Like, people are paying money to see you try to win. People are buying, spending 85 bucks on pay -per -view to see you try to win. He didn't do that. And I agree with you. When his career's over, you know, if it's corrected tomorrow, this would be the fight he's remembered for. For going up two -way classes and, quote, challenging Canelo Alvarez, but not really challenging him. I'm not surprised that Canelo dominated. I'll say that, Keith, because I've been saying that since that fight was made. I never believed Jermell Charlo could compete with Canelo because, and I say this about every Canelo opponent. To be competitive or to beat Canelo Alvarez, you have to throw with him. You have to be willing to let the right hand go. And since like 2018, when Canelo became this sort of middleweight and above destroyer, only two fighters have done that. Gennady has Golovkin done it, and Dmitry Bivol has done it. Both those guys have been willing to throw punches with Canelo. They have not been fearful of the artillery that was coming back. But every opponent other than that, that I've seen Canelo go up against, whether it's Callum Smith. Billy Joe Saunders had a different game plan, but eventually Billy Joe kind of succumbed to it. And now Jermell Charlo, they just, you know, they were trying to, Caleb Plant, I put on that list as well. They were just trying to jab and, you know, move and try to outbox him from the outside. You can't do that. You can't beat Canelo Alvarez unless you're willing to throw something big back against him. And, you know, Jermell Charlo was kind of an oversized example of that. You know, just the way he fought was just, I thought, just awful. Just a really weak performance from Jermell. But a kind of a continuation of guys that, you know, show up believing they have a game plan to face and beat Canelo Alvarez. But they just don't. And that kind of brings me to my next question, Keith, of who does at this point? You know, I think we'd all agree David Benavidez, at least on paper, is the most competitive option for Canelo Alvarez. I don't know if he's a realistic option for May of 2024. Terrence Crawford's out there saying he wants a piece of Canelo. I love Terrence Crawford. I think it's a marketable fight. But you're not going to convince me Terrence Crawford's going to stand in the pocket and trade with Canelo Alvarez. I just don't believe it. Jermell Charlo, don't get me started. There's no market for a Jermell Charlo -Canelo Alvarez fight. Less so after watching Jermell, the smaller brother and the more active brother, lose to Canelo. What is realistic right now for Canelo Alvarez as we look to the second fight of this PBC deal? Chris, the last time we spoke about this on the podcast, I remember telling you that the people who wanted to see him fight Terrence Crawford next, better hope that the Jermell Charlo fight is at least competitive, because then how do you sell a fight against an even smaller opponent in his next fight? And here we are. I'm not saying Terrence Crawford won't go in there to win. He certainly, based on everything that I know about Terrence Crawford, yet I also thought similar things about Jermell Charlo. I would think Terrence Crawford would go in there with a real attempt to win the fight. He's got a lot of pride. He's a very talented guy. He's one of the best pound -for -pound fighters in the world, coming off an incredibly dominant, career -defining win. But like you said earlier, Chris, when you get in there and you fight Canelo and he starts touching you in the beginning of the fight, people tend to realize, well, this is going to be harder than I thought. Canelo said that throughout Fight Week last week. He said watch when the fight starts and then you'll see Jermell Charlo realize that he's in there with a guy that he hasn't, the type of guy that he hasn't been in the ring with before, and that obviously played out. The same thing could be true of Crawford. Now, it is a marketable fight, Chris, and I think the public reaction to it, to me, has been somewhat surprising because it's been relatively positive. People want to see this fight. I can't stress enough. This guy would have to move up 21 pounds to fight Canelo because Canelo has repeatedly said, I am not doing this in a catchweight. It's not going to be at 164, 162, something where you might then think that Terrence Crawford has more of a chance to win. I really don't see as great as Terrence Crawford is, and as much as I commend him for wanting this challenge, I don't see this as a fight that he can win.

"All right, all right, all right, all right. Welcoming you guys to another lovely episode of On The Record Podcast. I am DJ Intense, your host the most. And to the left of me, I have I am Walt. What's up, Walt? I'm about to say another word, my guy. If you guys heard earlier, you know, we were just doing some things off cameras. They're off the record. Things we don't, we're not going to bring on the record. And if we are, you're not going to get it. Unless you paid for it to Patreon. You know? Yeah, me too. That voice you hear right now, but there's no other than Ceddi said, what's up Ceddi? The infamous C -E -D. What's up people? How you doing people? I'm doing all right, I'm doing all right, man. You know, we took some time off. It was Labor Day weekend. Yeah. And then the final weekend, which is work weekend. Dude, we were work, work, work, work, work. Nonstop. Dude, I just figured they don't. Almost 90 hours of work. OT, OT. Man. One day was 20 hours of work. That's the state job. I can't wait till you quit that job. You and I both, brother. I need to make some money, but working like a slave ain't it, man? Nah. Bob Brock just said it. You think that you can get by with this hard work alone? Nah, you're fooling yourself. You're fooling yourself. Used to do that, but now you're doing that. It's a lie. It's a lie. It's a myth. All people is you do hard work, and you'll become a successor, that's all. Listen, reality is in this country, in America, you have to do a lot of grime. You gotta do a lot of collaboration. Depending on how you wanna do it, but most of the time, all those people who are billionaires and trillionaires are the ones who did the most foul -ish humanly possible to get what they're at right now in life. Listen, right now we're at over 180 days in the writer's strike and the actor's strike right now. And it could have ended this right now. This thing should have been handled already. $50 million for both unions. And now they're gonna get a loss of over $300 to $500 million because of this strike. And you have people like Drew Barrymore's punk ass. Well, she reneged on it though. She had to, because dude, she was getting the business with the WGA and the SGA. And it's separate, you know. Even... Bill Maher's bitch ass too, man, was... I didn't get the damn thing off the running. Was, oh, I don't need no writers, I'll be our show. Look, dude, your show sucks. The Seddie Swear Counter is in full effect. There you go, you have one. You can do like a ding sound from now on for my swears. I'm gonna keep it calm. I'm gonna keep it professional. Seddie the Sailor Man. I can't swish, come on. Listen, man, I'm just telling you, when Seddie get that spinach boy, man, we poppin' ice today. Oh, yeah. Little bird watch out. Now, but on some real issues, like dude, Bill Maher, the guy who said, I'm not a field n -word, I'm a house n -word, and who crapped on Stan Lee after he died and stuff, and says a bunch of other ridiculously retarded things, says he's gonna do a show. Stan Lee who? Marvel comic Stan Lee. Oh, Stan Lee, oh. That's what Bill Maher said. Yo, he be going extra heavy trying to relate to us blacks. You're a not house n -word. You're at the table, bro. You got the good chair. You got the good piece of chicken. He used to be down by the dam, but nowadays, man, it's horrible. He's just, you know, he's trying. What the legend Paul Mooney said, everybody wants to be black, so it's time to be black? Listen, you think Paul Mooney is trying to be black and competent? Hell no. I want to be in a gated community area. What's wrong with you? Like he says, everybody wants to be black. He listen to King Koon, so he know what that's about. Yeah, but Bill Maher is doing his show still, which I think it was crap with writers. It's going to be crap about writers. And then, you know, you're going to have to hire writers who are not non -union writers. We're going to be scabs. We're going to pretty much destroy their any chance of them getting actual work when the strike is done. If you get caught. Well, if you are what you say you are, then have no fear. Even if you're on YouTube and you want to get a chance of being in the industry, you can't do no reviews. No, no movie reviews, no TV show reviews, nothing. There's a strike. You doing that? You will be known and accounted for when you want to get your membership. And trust me, you don't want those problems. But my thing is, if there was already YouTubers like successful already doing movie reviews and being credible and stuff like that, that won't affect them. Is it already locked in like a partnership or whatever with certain movies? Then they could do it. As long as they get the permission from their respective union. OK. If they do something brand new, if we're coming out with The Exorcist coming out next week, they can't do no review for that at all. Oh, wow. Wah wah. Listen, I can't go into it because I want to become in that union because I want to be a voice actor. You want to sell out. I get it. So I can't speak on it at all. No, no, no. He's not selling out. No, he wants to. He wants to. No, he doesn't want to sell out. You want the Disney money. No, I want to buy in. He wants to buy in. Oh, yes. You want to buy in, you got to sell out, right? No, the license is fucking me, bro. I'm just saying. The license, the thing to get a SAG card, it's over $3 ,000 to get a SAG card. And you have to get that SAG card in order to get some work and residuals and all that stuff. That's just what it is. Listen, man, listen, Harvey Weinstein's in prison, bro. He can't get to you, my guy. He can't get to you, my guy. Listen, man, don't take that hotel meeting, bro. Am I Rose McGowan? Shoot it. It's either a Zoom call. I'm actually Judd. It's either a Zoom call or a posh Beverly Hills restaurant or a Permell Studios, wherever that super creep was out here making his rounds. But you don't got to worry about that no more. Filthy behavior. One of the girls was saying like, yeah, when I said no more hanky panky, you know. He felt a way. Yeah, you want that rolling letter to there, don't you? My guy, how could he feel a way? You've been imposing your will on these ladies for a long time. Speaking of entertainment, you had a concert this weekend, right? Yeah, yeah. I was, you know, I was like. This guy was really outside. I was like, I was like, I was like. What concert was this? I was like. Let me tell you. Go ahead, say it. I was like from the acting sheriff up north, back to back out here, you know. Yes, so for all the first time, longtime listeners, and you know, last time listening to how evidence goes, I had a couple of shows. This past Thursday, I went to an event that was sponsored by Spotify for up and coming artists. I saw three, three very, very talented artists. The main artist I went to see goes by Kamari. He's an artist that I discovered around COVID. He has a lot of like influences. He reminds me of like a Frank Ocean. He's really that, you know, artist type dude. And he put out this great, incredible album called A Brief Nirvana, which I advise everybody to check out. His name is Kamari, K -H -A -M -A -R -I. Highly recommend him. And I also saw these two other artists from the UK, St. Harrison and Elmin. That's my boy. And overall, it was a great experience, very, you know. It was at SOB, Sound of Brazil in New York City. Very intimate setting, great turnout, great energy.

A highlight from Crypto 2023: Even Vitalik Is Getting Hacked
"Welcome back to The Breakdown with me, NLW. It's a daily podcast on macro, Bitcoin, and the big picture power shifts remaking our world. What's going on, guys? It is Monday, September 11th, and today we are catching up on everything in the cryptosphere from last weekend, including the founder of Ethereum getting hacked. Before we dive into that, however, if you are enjoying The Breakdown, please go subscribe to it, give it a rating, give it a review, or if you want to dive deeper into the conversation, come join us on the Breakers Discord. You can find a link in the show notes or go to bit .ly slash breakdown pod. Hello friends, hope you had a great weekend. Like I said, today we are doing a grab bag, catching up on just a ton of news, and let's start with the weird one. On Saturday, Ethereum co -founder Vitalik Buterin's Twitter account was compromised. The attacker used the account to tweet about a time -limited NFT promotion. Users that followed the link that tried to mint the NFT instead had their wallet drained. Around 700 ,000 in crypto tokens and NFTs were stolen. Now, the attack followed a similar pattern to many SIM swap attacks which have plagued high -profile crypto figures recently. An attacker fraudulently obtains control over the target's phone number and then uses two -factor authentication to gain access to Twitter or other services. The attacker then posts a link to a poison transaction for victims to sign. According to Unchained Sleuth's ZackXBT, there have been more than 53 SIM swap attacks over the past four months which have led to the theft of over 13 .3 million in crypto assets. Now, at this stage, we don't know exactly how the attacker gained access to Vitalik's Twitter account. Some assumed that Vitalik would be using more complicated security design than simple phone number based 2FA. If so, this attack speaks to much more sophisticated attacks targeting crypto figures. What was particularly insidious about this attack was how believable the fake communication was. The attacker's fake message was promoting a Q &A on a forthcoming Ethereum feature known as proto -dank sharding. Numerous high -profile industry figures were taken in by the fake message and signed transactions with their wallets. The highest profile NFT that was drained was the very first crypto punk to be claimed, valued at around $250 ,000. To some, the attack demonstrates a clear change in targets for scammers. DC Investors said, Still, others pointed out that it could have been a lot worse. Coin Bureau tweeted, Putting it more simply, CL207 tweeted, While Mac's short ETH, dude would have made $100 million, not $1 million. Still to others, this was just an example of how difficult it is still for normal people in the cryptosphere. Harrison at PompPunk on Chain wrote, Next up, staying in and around the Ethereum ecosystem, consensus -owned blockchain infrastructure firm Infura have announced plans to release a decentralized version of their service by the end of this year. Infura provides a range of blockchain infrastructure but are most well known for their Ethereum RPC nodes. As much as 50 % of Ethereum transactions are routed through Infura infrastructure, making their centralization an ongoing risk. As regulatory efforts move from enforcement to compliance, it's anticipated that regulators will look for intermediaries within the crypto ecosystem to deputize. And to many, a centralized Infura would be a natural fit for compliance enforcement. Indeed, we've already seen multiple instances of Infura being used as a tool for compliance. Last November, the firm announced that some 20 million Metamask users would have their wallets and IP addresses tracked using Infura. Consensus pushed back on the controversy by noting that Metamask allowed users to opt out by switching to a different RPC provider. In March, consensus blocked IPs from certain regions in an effort to comply with sanctions requirements. Also, in March, consensus blocked IPs from certain regions in an effort to comply with sanctions requirements. Users from Venezuela and Iran were among those who complained they could no longer use Metamask through Infura. At the time, consensus were criticized for restricting access more broadly than the sanctions called for, including blocking some U .S. residents who had emigrated from sanctioned nations. Still, it appears that consensus and the Ethereum ecosystem at large have grown increasingly uncomfortable with the censorship risk of RPC nodes. And Infura have been working on this decentralization project for over a year now. Now, the project will be rolled out in a number of phases. Infura refers to the first stage as the quote federated phase, where trusted partners will be brought on to run redundant versions of key infrastructure. Tom Hay, decentralized infrastructure product lead at Infura, said in a statement, We're looking to launch something later this year, and that is going to be a federated phase. The federated phase will last at least six months and will provide the network with the insight on how to build a sustainable model before introducing further decentralization. Now, according to the team at ConsenSys, aside from censorship resistance, adding more diversity and redundancy in RPC infrastructure could also improve the robustness of Ethereum in general. ConsenSys head of strategy Simon Morris said, If you have different people setting up their infrastructure in different ways on different cloud providers using different node software, then you can start to build antifragility into the system. Next up on this breakdown, a regulatory roundup. On Friday, the SEC filed their response in the Ripple lawsuit, arguing that the case should be allowed to proceed to appeal. Ripple had previously objected to the appeal, stating that the regulator had not made a sufficient argument to ground an appeal. The SEC is filing hitback, stating that, quote, The defendants themselves say that the issues have industry -wide significance and are of special consequence. They claimed that this pivotal decision should be subjected to the scrutiny of an appellate court to ensure a clear precedent is made. The SEC is filing hitback, stating that, quote, The defendants themselves say that the issues have industry -wide significance and are of special consequence. End quote. They claimed that this pivotal decision should be subjected to the scrutiny of an appellate court to ensure a clear precedent is made. The SEC noted that one judge has already rejected the Ripple decision as a persuasive precedent, opening the door to contradictory rulings. The regulator further argued that halting the rest of the Ripple case to deal with the appeal immediately would, quote, preserve the resources of the court. They even went so far as to take a swipe at Ripple, claiming that the firm was deliberately dragging out court proceedings. Speaking of the SEC, Republican House Whip Tom Emmer has introduced an appropriations amendment to rein in the SEC's crypto enforcement agenda. In a tweet, Emmer wrote, "...Gary Gensler has abused his authority to grow the administrative state to the detriment of the American people. Congress must use all our tools, including the appropriations process, to restrict Chair Gensler from further weaponizing taxpayer dollars." The appropriations amendment would limit the SEC from utilizing funds to pursue digital asset enforcement until comprehensive rules and regulations are put in place. Now, of course, Emmer has long been critical of the SEC's approach to crypto regulation. In June, he supported fellow Congressman Warren Davidson's SEC Stabilization Act proposal which would limit the authority of the SEC chair by introducing a sixth commissioner to require bipartisan support for regulatory actions. Gensler is scheduled to appear at an oversight hearing before the Senate Banking Committee on Tuesday. The House Financial Services Committee, meanwhile, will hold their SEC oversight hearing on September 27th. So we should get a chance to hear more about whether there has been any shifts in the Gensler -SEC attitude since some of these court proceedings have gone through. Now, moving over to the Fed. In a speech given at a fintech event on Friday, Fed Vice Chairman of Supervision Michael Barr made a number of comments about CBDCs and stablecoins. When it comes to CBDCs, Barr emphasized that the Fed is still firmly in the quote basic research phase and is far from making any decisions. Barr said that quote, Investigation and research are very different from decision -making about next steps in terms of payment system development and we are a long way from that. By way of detail, he explained that the research is currently focused on system architecture and tokenization models. Barr continued to reinforce the idea that the Fed won't make any decision on CBDC issuance without quote, clear support from the executive branch and the authorizing legislation from Congress. On stablecoins, Barr said quote, I remain deeply concerned about stablecoin issuance without strong federal oversight. If non -federally regulated stablecoins were to become a widespread means of payment and store of value, they could pose significant risks to financial stability, monetary policy, and the U .S. payment system. It is important to get the legislative and regulatory framework right before significant risks emerge. Now, Barr has recently spearheaded the Fed's Novel Activities Supervision Program, which requires banks to obtain a written non -objection before they can interact with stablecoins. He claimed that the safeguard was in line with previous guidance issued by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency. Barr argued that strong federal oversight of dollar -backed stablecoins was in the Fed's interest, arguing that the tokens quote, borrow the trust of the central bank. Now, of course, federal oversight of stablecoin issuers has become a line in the sand for establishment Democrats who sought to hold up the progress of stablecoin legislation back in July. Barr also reflected on the July launch of FedNow, which is the new instant gross settlement system operated by the Fed. He said that FedNow has been made available to depository institutions of all size, but quote, while current volumes on FedNow are small, I expect that participation will grow over time. Now, next up, one we talked about a bit in the weekly recap, but giving the details just for completeness. On Thursday, the CFTC announced enforcement actions against three D5 firms — Open, 0x, and Derridex — all settled lawsuits for offering unregistered derivatives products to U .S. customers. The fines were relatively small — $250 ,000, $200 ,000, and $100 ,000, respectively — but the message was clear. CFTC Director of Enforcement Ian McGinley said in a statement, Somewhere along the way, DeFi operators got the idea that unlawful transactions become lawful when facilitated by smart contracts. They do not. The DeFi space may be novel, complex and evolving, but the division of enforcement will continue to evolve with it and aggressively pursue those who operate unregistered platforms that allow U .S. persons to trade digital asset derivatives. Now, while both Open and Derridex were offering derivatives trading, the situation around 0x was a little more complex. 0x is an Open DEX platform which allows anyone to list tokens. They attracted the attention of the CFTC by simply having derivative tokens with embedded leverage listed. The CFTC claimed that simply retaining the ability to draw fees from the trading, though not actually profiting from the platform and having access to shut down the platform, was sufficient to be held liable for how other developers use the platform. Now, one CFTC commissioner offered a scathing dissent to the enforcement action. Commissioner Summer Mersinger wrote, Although each case presents different facts, they have been lumped together for commission consideration and vote, presumably for messaging purposes, as quote -unquote DeFi cases. She added that, I am concerned that the Commission in these cases is taking another step down the path of bringing enforcement actions when we should be engaging with the public. It is important to emphasize that Enforcement First has not always been the CFTC's default position. These cases are especially concerning in that they represent a significant shift in position on the merits of engagement with DeFi market participants. Finally today, over in the UK, the United Kingdom Financial Conduct Authority have pushed back the commencement date of some elements of strict new crypto advertising rules. The core rules will come into force on October 8th. They require advertisements to be clear, fair, and not misleading. In addition, risk warnings will now be mandatory in incentivizing platform use with both monetary and non -monetary rewards is prohibited. Other parts of the regulations could be pushed back to as late as January according to the FCA. Individual firms would need to apply for additional time on a case -by -case basis. The regulator explained that firms are running up against technical issues implementing some parts of the new rules. In particular, a 24 -hour cooling -off period which would allow customers to ask for full refunds is proving difficult to comply with. It would require programming changes to platforms at a minimum, if not an overhaul to business models. Lucy Casseldine, Director of Consumer Investment at the FCA said, As a proportionate regulator, we're giving firms that apply a little bit more time to get other reforms requiring technology and business change right. We'll maintain our close eye on firms during this extended implementation period. Now, the FCA's strict new rules have been criticized for their broad scope and draconian punishments. Foreign firms that advertise to UK customers would be covered by the regulations, which capture social media posts, websites, and in -app advertising. Influencers would be held liable for their promotion of crypto products, and the failure to adhere to the new regulations could result in criminal charges. The maximum punishment for breaches includes an unlimited fine or even jail time. The FCA has said that the strict rules are designed to Prevent harm to consumers from investing in crypto assets that do not match their risk appetite. The regulator added that It is up to consumers to decide whether they buy crypto assets, but they should do so based on fair and accurate information that helps them make effective investment decisions. So friends, this is the other side of the prepping for the next bull run. It is going to be a much tighter environment, certainly for any types of promotions. Although whether that will end scams given where we started this episode, I think that remains to be seen. However, that is going to do it for today's episode. I appreciate you guys listening as always. Until tomorrow, be safe and take care of each other.
Why Election Integrity Needs to Be a Priority at the RNC
"I'm going to play cut 16. Then Tyler, the floor is yours. 16 Asa Hutchinson says RNC rules will prevent Donald Trump from being the nominee. Then I'll let you go play cut 16. And over a year ago, I said that Donald Trump was morally disqualified from being president again, as a result of what happened on January 6th, more people are understanding the importance of that, including conservative legal scholars who says he may be disqualified under the 14th amendment from being president again as a result of the insurrection. This is something that could disqualify him under our rules and under the constitution. And so obviously I'm not going to support somebody who's been convicted of a serious felony or who has this is disqualified under our constitution and that's consistent with RNC rules. Tyler Boyer, very popular take in Arkansas. So, uh, so I will tell you this. So this happened at the RNC. There's two, two big issues. The rules are what are the bylaws of the RNC. So anytime that you hear this, people use the term RNC rules, those are the bylaws. So that's what governs the RNC. Those can only be changed in a certain amount of time. And so the way that's been laid out for how we nominate a president has been laid out. And it's been the same for basically for a long, long time with minor changes here and there. And so no one can change those rules at this point, moving forward. Now there are rules that aren't get it, get it established at the convention. That's a totally different deal. So right now, Ronna, so part of the reason why a lot of people like, you know, explain to me why you think Ronna isn't the one, right? Ronna McDaniel, Romney McDaniel. Well, you can always tell how good a chair is by who she selects as her chairs for these committees. Right? So the current chair for the RNC committee, you actually interacted with in Washington not too long ago. He was in the audience, absolutely dislikes us, because he's a, he's a toll rhino. His name is Jeff Kent. He's the chair of the rules committee right now. He is an absolute hates Trump, hates conservatives, you know, loathes conservatives from the state of Washington. And he's the chair of the rules committee. So there is some substantial concern that who becomes the chair of the rules committee for the convention, for the convention rules is also going to be bad. Because if it was a guy like Jeff Kent, he's like Asa,
A Father's Fight With Harrison Tinsley
"One of the more disturbing trends happening in America is how the courts are either neutral, indifferent, or against reality when it comes to this gender stuff happening in our country. This is a very chilling story. Joining us now is Harrison Tinsley. Harrison, welcome to the program. Thanks for having me, Charlie. So your story is really striking. You have a three and a half year old son. Correct. Born as a biological male. Correct. Your former partner, ex -girlfriend, wants to raise him as non -binary. Is that correct? To the best of my knowledge, yes. And it has started this massive court battle. Tell us about it. Well, so it starts a few years back. I met a girl in the Bay Area. We started dating, we fell in love. We never agreed politically. I always thought, you know, that was something we could get past and just agree to disagree on some things. Unfortunately, the country's become so polarized. I'm not sure you can do that anymore. But shortly into us dating, she became pregnant. And we were both very happy about that, thankfully. And we basically, she suffered with some mental illness problems, like borderline personality disorder. It's like, it's pretty serious. And it was just super up and down relationship. And as her pregnancy went on, she was constantly threatening me that I wouldn't see my son if I wasn't exactly who she wanted me to be, particularly politically. And she would bring up things like, oh, what if our kid's transgender? Why aren't you at the woman's March? Things like that. And it got to a point where she sent me a cease and desist letter. It's about halfway through her pregnancy. So I respected it. And I didn't find out my son was born. I found out about one week after he was born from social media. And it was two months after that I filed in court. It took 13 more. And this is right during COVID. And so I met my son finally when he was 15 months old, even though I was aware the whole time. And then there was this idea of the gender confusion, right? So tell us about that. So it goes on a little bit. I moved to the Bay when half custody, then it's right around the time I went half custody. It's a little bit before he's two years old that she starts, or at least to my knowledge, seeing pictures and stuff, calling him a day, putting dresses on him, makeup on him. There was a time she took him to Disneyland. And my son told me a couple months later, he's like data. When I went to Disneyland, I couldn't go on the rides unless I wore my princess shoes. I didn't want to wear my princess shoes. I wanted to wear boy shoes. I was super heartbreaking, just as one example of the things my son tells me. And so that happens. There's a lot of defamation of me on social media, et cetera. At the same time, I get granted a restraining order on a temporary basis. It's violated. Bring all of this to trial. Get granted a trial by the court, because his mom was also arrested for child endangerment and placed on a 5150 hold while he was in her custody. She ended up getting let off the charges, but she was charged originally. And so I get granted a five -day trial, which is a super long time in family court. Usually you get a lot, you get like 30 minutes. And so we have the trial. I'm super confident about it. There's witnesses, 850 pages of evidence on my side, almost nothing on the other side. And I'm super confident about it. After the trial, about two months later, I get a decision from the court. They decide they're going to keep custody the same. They won't rule on gender. And my son had to continue to see the doctor that the mom preferred. And the doctor was open to the trans thing, right? Yeah. The doctor admitted on the witness stand that she transitions kids as young as 12 at her clinic and that a place down the street does it to kids as young as six.

The Tampa Bay Rays used a 7th inning RBI ground out by wander Franco to break a ten ten tie and defeat the Los Angeles Dodgers 11 to ten. Both starters got hit around as Gavin stone allowed 7 runs in two innings of work, while Josh Fleming allowed ten runs in 6 innings, including 5 home runs, Tampa Bay finishes at ten game home stands 7 and three, while the Dodgers complete their longest road trip of 2023 with a four and 6 Mark. The Yankees used a 7 run third inning to defeat the Padres ten to 7, Aaron judge and Harrison Bader hit home runs to support winning pitcher Garrett Cole, who is now 6 and zero. This was a good team win today for sure. I mean, being able to kind of subdue them through the middle innings and keep the momentum.

Should Trump Fear for His Life? Dick Morris Shares His Thoughts
"Mentioned Kennedy a few times. You mentioned RFK junior who's running on the Democrat side. It seems to me that JFK was onto the same forces that we are now again onto he understood the wickedness. The power of the FBI, the weaponized FBI and the CIA. And he was aiming to do something about it. And it seems to me that that is why they killed him because he was that kind of a threat. Do you not fear that there would be an attempt on Donald Trump's life? I'm surprised there hasn't been. Well, I worked for Clinton and I worked for Trump. He got to trust the Secret Service. They do a hell of a job. And they're very efficient, very effective. So I don't want to speculate about that. I will tell you something about the Kennedy assassination JFK. Robert Caro in his biographies of Johnson takes it right up to this point, but then leaves it off. Apparently John Kennedy had decided to dump Lyndon Johnson from the ticket in 1964 and had told his secretary Evelyn Lincoln that he did. And the front page article on Life magazine, the week of the assassination, was to have been a bad Lyndon Johnson being indicted. In the early celestial and in the Harrison Williams investigation, senator from New Jersey and those investigations were going to lead to an indictment that Johnson and Kennedy was killed right before he could act on that.
"harrison" Discussed on Veteran on the Move

Brad also has a deep experience developing concepts, including co authoring three patents in search, geotagging, and personalization. Brad Harrison was scout ventures is up next on veteran on the move. Welcome to veteran on the move. If you're a veteran in transition, an entrepreneur wannabe, or someone still stuck in that JOB trying to escape. This podcast is dedicated to your success. And now, your host, Joe crane. Have you tried navy federal's car by an experience? I highly recommend it. You won't have a better car buying experience. Check them out at navy federal dot org slash carbine. All right, we're talking with army veteran Brad Harrison with scout ventures, Brad, you've done some amazing things in product development and building companies and patents and it's a lot of really cool stuff. Looking forward to that before we get into all of that, take us back, tell us what you did in the army. Yeah, so, you know, I grew up with my grandfather who was a navy jet watching John Wayne toro toro every Sunday. So, you know, when I started to think about college, I was from New York, so I'd been up to West Point as a kid and kind of saw the cadets and kind of fell in love with it. And so wound up going to West Point, which was great because, you know, it was the structure that I needed. The education that I needed and I happened to be strong physically and militarily. So allowed me to kind of thrive there. And why you're today, you get to bang out things like airborne school and some deployments. So that was pretty fun. And then I commissioned as an infantry officer went to ranger school. For any of the rangers out there listening, I was in class three 95, which was the last four phase ranger school, but it was also the class where for my classmates died in the swamps. So my army career started off with this really stark reminder of how dangerous it was. What we were doing, you know, I think we sometimes forget about that when I was when I was a yearling at West Point, you know, we were on a training mission and two of the bradleys crashed at night, and a whole bunch of people got injured. So I think sometimes people forget, I know, you know, you were a helicopter pilot, right? You know, there's a lot of things that can go wrong. I mean, I know three guys that died in flight school. What was going through? So I think that really changed. This seriousness, which I looked at every one of my deployments in terms of my priority was really bringing all of my soldiers home. And I think that that experience and ranger school really hammered that in, what an awful experience and then I wound up getting out in 99. So I missed the last 20 years and transitioned through grad school at MIT Sloan, which kind of set me down the path I'm on now. Yeah. So what was your transition like coming out of the army? Were you prepared for that? Was it smooth sailing? Well, I would imagine that for any transitioning vet that's listening, the two pages of a thousand URLs that they handed me when I walked out the door really did not provide any resources. The SBA and their patriot express loans, you know, I've never been able to access any of that stuff. The one benefit I was able to access that was really amazing was because I came out and I was 30% disabled when I originally transitioned I qualified for vocational rehab. Which helped cover the cost of graduate school. So that became the path that I went down because there was some funding from the VA. And I really thought that it would allow me to transition into a role that valued my experience. I found when I was trying to transition directly out of the army into these roles. Nobody actually knew how to translate my experience into what I was applying for. And one of the things when we mentor veterans at scout is we really spend a lot of time talking to them about developing their own narrative, telling their own story, thinking about how to craft that story into the sales or biz dev roll or whatever they're trying to do. And then I would say for all transitioning veterans, don't get discouraged, just keep banging away and keep trying to work the veteran network because I think that's a pretty strong network for us. Absolutely. Great advice. Now when you first were transitioning out and you were starting to go to school, where did this entrepreneurship thing come from? Was that what your intent was when you get out of the army? Yeah, you know, so I grew up my dad was an entrepreneur and from as long as I can remember any time I asked for something, he was like, all right, if you want something, you better get to work. So by that time I was 16, I had a painting company, a landscape and company, and I was running the local little league. Hey man, a $140 on a Saturday. Now up a couple of third, fourth and 5th graders. I'm in. But you know, I

But most warm, blooded American, you know, red, white, and blue bleeders are like, uh oh, I'm giving this, you know, my last dying breath. And I think we're going to need as many of those spiders as we can get. I just can't believe in 2022, you know, you see two years of what just happened, how anybody, anybody, could want government rule over everything you do. After the last two years, it's mind boggling. I don't even have words to explain it at this point, right? I mean, you wonder, again, are people brain dead? I'm getting I'm getting to that point. Their brainwashed their brain dead. There's something in their brain at all. Yeah, I had this really fun conversation where honestly, if I wanted to get kind of nerdy and start talking matrix, I think a lot of the left are non non role playing characters or what is it called when you ever see free guy? Yeah. You know, there's the characters that are just programmed to be there and do things and then there's us who are actually role playing characters that have to interact with these characters and it's like you're saying the same thing you're programmer must have cut out some extra deep dialog or not giving you that same program because you're only saying the same thing over and over again. And so I think we're living in a matrix and there's some type of glitch and now all of a sudden all these different characters are just stuck in saying the same thing over and over again. But that's just weird. I mean, I'll tell you too. I've said this a lot recently because people still live in COVID. Like you walk outside of your house and you just pass away on your front porch. You know, I think a big problem is obviously you or I are free thinkers. We're thinking outside the box. We do our own homework. We actually look at data and don't listen to Chuck Schumer's point of view or Joe Biden's point of view or we do our own thinking for ourselves because that's who we are.

Is Vladimir Putin still on Twitter right now or any of these people that the people, whether it's a lot of your Putin or legitimate terrorist groups in all around the Middle East, they're all, hey, open arms to come on in to Facebook to Instagram to Twitter to wherever you wherever you want because at least you're not pissing off the left.

You're burning down businesses, you're burning down the police stations, I would consider that a government building in Seattle. What do you mean government buildings weren't burned down? Right. So these people and then you have the Kamala Harris as you have the LeBron James. And again, I'm not condoning January 6th. I wouldn't have been caught dead there going into the capitol. I want to stress that first off. That is not who I am and I would never have done that. However, you know, these people Kamala Harris, you know, funding a bail fund for BLM supporters. Like she said before the election, right? You have people like LeBron that put out tweets of ripping that police officer and things of that nature that actually save somebody's life. It looked like that day. You know, why are there no repercussions and where will there ever be? Well, the boogeyman get those types of people because obviously money fixes a lot. And to use one more example, you know, we canceled Donald Trump, we cancel other people like him, yet we're okay with Jeffrey Epstein still, right? We're still okay there. Nobody involved with Jeffrey Epstein, Bill Clinton and others, has been looked at, right? Yeah. I mean, the double standard, the hypocrisy is. Impressive, almost like it is so disgusting that they can get away with this and but to answer a few of your questions or to go back to a few of your things, government building or not. I mean, government statues very historic things that mean a lot to a lot of people were destroyed. What about our feelings?.

And I think that's a great point too because for a lot of people myself included even I've been involved with a political firm for 5 years now, but I really didn't care as much until a few years ago and then COVID really made me get even more vocal about it. And I think for a lot of people an event like that will absolutely change how you think about things or, you know, it's not that bad. It's not that bad. Okay, this is terrible, right? And I think that's where we've gotten to on the, oh my God, they have way too much power. I mean, our accounting executive and Buffalo New York still has emergency powers. Still, it's march of 2022, right? I mean, how much longer do you need? And to be honest with you, yes, is COVID still impacting people, sure it is. But it's a very small population of people that it's impacting number one. And number two, how are we going to get over this? If we're not over it yet, we're never getting over it. Yeah, it's part of life now. Absolutely. It's unfortunately here to stay. I mean, just like any other virus or, you know, it sucks. But we don't shut down the entire world because of all these other viruses or ailments or illnesses that unfortunately become part of life. But the real pandemic is the ding mental health that is taking a toll on because of the, you know, attempt at less lowering the curve, you know, 14 days turns into two years and I can't remember who said it, but you know the cure can't be worse than the what is it, the diagnosis and the virus or whatever. And that's what it's become. I mean, there is more suicides, more addiction and drug abuse and all these other types of deaths than necessary. And unfortunately, I think it's the next wave of the true pandemic. And I think that's what's, you know, we already knew this, but it's going to show itself out more and more over the next few years, probably. A lot of people get depressed or have suicidal thoughts or sadly commit suicide because when you're so stuck in doing nothing all the time, right? It's the same reason I'm a big believer in, you know, shaving welfare a little bit and making people get back to work and making people do things every day because if you get caught sitting at home doing nothing over and over and over again, of course you're going to go nuts, right? I mean, of course you will. It's not, it's not shocking to see, and it's really sad to be honest with you, but you see these people and kids, especially, right? Kids, the best part of your childhood is not having any responsibility and going on hanging out with your Friends, depending on your age, going to party with your friends or going to play basketball or whatever it may be. And this is, this is not a real number on kids, and it's really, it's really sad..

So I'm excited to speak to him again. Harrison Rogers, the CEO of the anti woke movement. I love that so much, Harrison. He's also got a great event coming up at the end of the month, so we're going to talk about that later on. But Harrison, welcome, and thanks for coming on. Thank you for having me again. It was a great talking last week and so I'm excited to hopefully be able to get into a little bit more detail of all those different topics. Yeah, we won't have any commercial breaks today, so that'll be fun. We can just rifle right through it. Can you tell our listeners, I know some people heard you last weekend, but can you tell our listeners a little bit about your background where you came from and why you're so involved in this movement now, especially as you said, the anti woke CEO? Yes, absolutely. You know, one of the first things I like to tell everybody is that up until about two years ago, I was completely politically agnostic. I wanted to stay away from politics, you know, mind my own business, leave politics to the politicians because my business over here doesn't have anything to do with politics. I don't want my name to be associated with corruption or immorality in so many of my great business colleagues, great people, felt the same way. You know, it's like, you know, let's just, mind our own business over here, let them do their thing. Well, if 2020 taught us nothing else, it's that your business might not care about politics, but politics cares about your business with how they are able to come in and decide who's essential who's not, who needs to abide by Fauci.

Like, you know what? I'm just gonna buy this part of land. What are you gonna put on it? Yeah. Who can visit it? It's abstract in that way where you're like, this doesn't make any sense, but there are so many smaller companies that are trying to get in on this before the quote unquote brands get in on it IE a Facebook slash meta. Well, I think Nike or Adidas is actually they're launching their own concept of a metaverse. So it's already starting to happen. Yeah. It's already starting to happen and it's definitely at a point where like I said, I can feel like we could be left behind in that so I don't know. One thing that I'm gonna try to do this year on the show is bring on some designers that are doing NFTs to just to try to get the audience and listen to this show up on like what is it and how can we get involved? Because I see it like I was in this conference and I was just like, I can see the future and we could very easily be left behind because the fervor around the metaverse reminded me so much of early like late 90s early 2000s Internet before Internet advertising really became a big thing and companies tried to figure out well how can I conduct business on the Internet? Now it's like, how can I conduct business on the metaverse? At the same conversations you just swap out Internet for metaverse. How are we going to work on the Internet? Email, what is that? And that was like, how are we going to work on the metaverse? It's the same conversation, different times, and I'm just like, it reminds me of that, I don't know if anyone's seen it, but there's this old clip of Brian gumbel talking from The Today Show.

Of course, with that with, I think, one with being sensitive to just the general overall global issue that we're going through with the pandemic, but also it's going to be a different kind of thing when you meet them in person. The other places I've admit, I've not met a single one of my coworkers in person in over a year. Yeah. Yeah. I think it's truly fascinating that social component. You know, I think on the show, I don't know if I had gone to this point yet, but a lot of the engineering team that I was working with was based in Poland and so I think we hadn't developed ways to communicate like technology wasn't there, right? So the ways to communicate were extremely difficult. So then you really kind of had to see and visit somebody to understand their body language. But I think now we're so good at communicating with each other. I think seeing each other in the flesh it's sort of like, oh, how do we compute this now? Yeah, I'm sort of running into that a bit now because as a place where I currently work, we're split between San Francisco and Paris, and so like I'm working with Europeans in the morning, working with the U.S. folks in the afternoon, like trying to, and it is all, you know, very much async.

No, it's been longer than that once I have been at LinkedIn for like I said almost 5 years. So it's almost been like 7 years. Yeah, you're at base when we last talk, which is now part of Zendesk, I believe. But yeah, it's been a while. So we definitely got a lot to catch up on in terms of your career and everything.

How has 2021 been for you? What did you learn about yourself over this past year? You know, look, if 2020 was rough, right? So I think I'm a glass half full kind of person. So I will say that 2021 definitely felt sort of like a bit of emergence out of that, you know? I think in just kind of looking back, I mean, a few things, right? And so I think really being unapologetic in terms of just like turning things off and making time for myself. I think making time in the space for yourself is super important for that. I think additionally, we all know this, but your voice matters. And I think probably it's a bit of a reflection in terms of where I've grown and the position and the role that I have within my organization within the design community.

"Them to only do one thing would just share that spring video with every single person there network. That's it so it's literally a copy paste on every on facebook if all fifty thousand did that with thousand people each that's like five million people like right off the bat. Seventeen percent of them convert to spring members holy crap that's immediate billion spring members. Ride to win. That solves those problems case. That's three got what fourteen got us your two or three other top ones that you think. Let's move the needle right. Because what i love about this is this could apply to anyone doing anything right. It could apply to business. It could apply to somebody else who runs a nonprofit. It could apply to somebody that wants to support charity water and wants to think about how they can help. So and i love the idea of levers that you could pull when lever is go to all the people that are already familiar with the cause that are already investing get them to further their investment by raising awareness through their own networks. Okay so what else. Yeah i would say the next thing is pick your top hundred influencers who have donated who have raised the most money for you for charity water and have them always promote thirst. Whenever there another person show something. I do when somebody asked me for a book recommendation. I always said that. The number one book. I've ever read thirst by scott harrison. I do that for two reasons one because it is. It's my top three but the other reason is because i would rather promote that book that's actually going to do something for the human race than promote the other two books in my top. Three that people can just before. So that's another thing i do. Well left lewis house. Did that at every podcast attended. Imagine how much traction that book would get would-be absolutely crazy. And the same way that most of his copies that got sold was because of jerry vs community gary. You promoted the crap out of scott when he interviewed him. I'd just wish everyone else would do that. Because everyone needs access to clean water so that would be. The third tactic would give and the fourth tactic. I would give is making sure that everyone who's liking the charity water. Facebook pages also bought a copy of thirst so one strategy. I gave him the book launch. Actually to the rest of the group is. I told them on shirty water and see who in your friend group has already liked their facebook page. So you see on facebook. This person has liked whatever and them personally and say there's a book out. Most people idea said oh. I didn't know there was a book and they bought the book right away. If every single person did that we would sell easily hundred thousand copies of thirst and that would really increase the personal brand because we would have that in every household read the book there inspired. They feel connected. They want to be a part of the mission. Okay so for somebody. That's watching or listening right now to this. What would be your advice to them clearly. It's read thirst. What else and become a member of spring. What else could they be doing. Proactively to support scott in his mission and or could they be doing to to study scott to learn more about him. Like you've done right and here's the principal. I want to show that everyone is find your scott right fine..

"So they'll raise hundreds of millions of dollars a year and they'll be able to solve this thing before scott harrison. You know god forbid dies or retires. The ceo of charity water. That's the idea. So now the question is how do you scale from fifty grand to a million. So what i would think about and i would do this with scott like we'd spend our couple of hours doing this over some lunch or something is we would go through. All of the influencers. Steady currently doesn't have relationships with gay. I want to emphasize doesn't and make a list of all the big podcasts. And then my responsibility and the people that. I know who are big in the spaces. What i'm going to do in five years. I guess i'm giving giving my master plan on live but it's to people are watching. Let's okay then what's going to happen is through. Every single person does have a relationship with. I'm personally going to dive into my own network to make sure he gets intros to all of the other big shows after i get on them. That's the big play and then going to live events or communities of people who have very high networks for example. He's not very involved in the tony. Robbins community. nobody knows who he is. All those people are multimillionaires. A lot of those individuals are. And i'm the one who's doing that for him. And you know that. Because i'm going into that community and i'm promoting charity water so it's also about thinking about quarter the members of your well and what communities especially in the personal development space that you can enter and quickly get them aligned to what your brand is and what your viciousness dowd. Probably be the second thing. Okay well yeah and it makes perfect sense right if you have influencers that you're untapped at this point getting them to obviously believe and support and be advocates brand basser for the mission of charity water would be valuable and then to your point your first point which is prepare and give people the knowledge to be able to effectively share the reason why they are part of charity water why they are so passionate about mission and then they could then obviously helped spread it and i think that goes with anyone. That's brandon ambassador for the organization soon. Now that you've done those two things what else would you suggest because to your point to go from fifty thousand to a million. That's a big delta. It's a big gap and you could do it with influencers for sure. But i'm sure there's another thing up your sleeve..

"That scott harrison has done exceptionally well. That i would argue. No other nonprofit executive in the world has done at the level he's done it is understanding who is core customers and where they're coming from so most people right in the nonprofit space and i'm generalizing row bid right. They don't focus enough on their top clientele who are the richest people who are funding most of the revenue right. So let's say somebody's worth five million dollars dir donating to a nonprofit because they wanna give back they wanna do something important so there needs to be a big accountability piece there which is what are you actually doing with my money. Play by play. And what level of empathy showing for that scott takes to a whole the level where he calls it the well but the well is a lot more than just a group of people who give money to charity water. It's an accountability group. It's a community group. Everyone in the world knows each other. He he gives them special gifts and things like that special status roles it's like there's a certain status about being in the well because a lot of people in the well are extremely impressive. I'll give you a couple of names right now. Daniel the founder of spotify. Reid hoffman founder of linked. Dan gary viner chuck. There's some examples of people core in the well and what's interesting is the way it how he markets a very exclusive..

"That i was meant to solve one problem too. And that later ended up. Becoming master talked two years later. When i had the idea for it for public speaking but basically what this does is it. Gives a blueprint for any change maker in the world who actually wants to make a difference in the world to know exactly how to do it. Play by play dots. what scott. Harrison's book is for so for anyone who actually wants to make a difference that's must read in my opinion. Do you think the change maker who this would apply. Four is someone who's solving a problem for. Let's call it. You mentioned people who are in the lower ten percent from just a standpoint of financial wellbeing. Is that who it's meant for anybody that wants to solve a world problem. Great great follow up. This is more of a personal opinion. I think it's relevant for everybody whether you're tried to build the next test or whether you're trying to build next nonprofit you definitely want to rereading scott's book and i'll tell you why whenever we think most of problems in the world. It's very depressing. Billy you're like oh this is happening. Everyone's always complaining about everything that's happening in the world and it's just bad energy bad. You don't wanna do it. You don't feel you could accomplish it. Scott harrison is a textbook example of someone who wasn't supposed to change the world and who did at a at a level that is unfathomable for the world. So that's why. I'm a big advocate of what he does and also the principles that he teaches in. The book was Entrepreneur or someone who's trying to solve a problem for the bottom ten. Got it okay. So let's talk about some of those principles you call it a blueprint. What are some of the key tenants of the blueprint that stand out. Obviously somebody needs to read the book to get all the the nuance in the detail. Let's use broad strokes here. What are some of the key elements that stand out yes. So let's summarize a couple of points that touched on earlier so people have a nice clean bullet. Los number one is storytelling. Your ideas in a way that includes everybody not just yourself. That's probably the biggest insight. I got from thirst. So for example and this is good feedback for even me introspective as we're talking when i started master talk whenever i would communicate. It was always. Hey billy. I'm starting this youtube gentle. Because i want to make public speaking videos to see what i can do to show. What the expertise. That was the word i would use and today that messaging has changed dramatically from the i to the league where hey master talk us for the seven year old girl who can't afford any part of the world. I'm creating videos for them. That they grow up watching my videos and become much better much better. Communicated that was so notice how my languaging has changed from. I two other people. And that's something that scott harrison does not just from a messaging perspective but also from a branding and marketing perspectives. Like the example..

That people in the church are canceling me. I'm not gonna mention the name but gigantic christian retailer to all the independent christian bookstores has said that they are going to not carry my new book. Is atheism dead now than is atheism dead. It's pure apologetic. It's evangelism they're not going to carry that because i'm too controversial. My statements about our forty fifth president. Something like that. They are jumping in bed with the marxist cancel culture and cancelling this book and i thought this is hard for me to believe this is like an overtly christian bookstore chain kind of thing again. I'm not going to give the name until i know. This is one hundred percent official. But i it just breaks my heart. That people who are overtly christian are doing things like this. So i'm asking you if you're able to do this folks because we're going to need your help. This is a weird battle. Please preorder is atheism. Dead they'll give you the best price between now and when you actually get shipped the book so you won't get charged until october but if you pre order it it helps a lot We're in a strange battle. There is nothing political or controversial about what is in the book. Is atheism dead. But this chain. And i will be mentioning them if they if they have decided to go through with this. I think they have. But it's going to be devastating for journalism essay. The same thing. I wrote this down on the train on the way and i said we're supposed to wash feats not lick boots and i think that's what's happened to the church a lot today. Wow well that's that's kind of. Yeah the in other words. You think there are scared of something and so they just pull mexico anything controversial. We're gonna step away and step away from what from a book. I mean again. It's atheism dead. It's gone it's looking into proof of god proof of the the veracity of scripture and biblical archaeology and then it looks into and i thought to myself this is this is meant to be a blessing to believers and non-believers to say.

"Folks. I'm talking to the head of promise keepers can harrison promise keepers dot or kenneth the heart of this. I wrote a book a few years ago. Called seven men and the secret of their greatness sequel called seven more men and the secret of their greatness. Why because i sensed that in our generation there is huge confusion about what it is to be a man. in god's idea of what it is to be a man so being man is not about being tough guy. It's about being a strong man who uses his strength for others. That's the gop. A love of jesus and that idea has fallen on hard times in the culture so when you see strongmen people say this toxic masculinity because they've seen so much broken they associate strength not with protection and love but with abuse or whatever it is and that's kind of the culture has kind of You know baked a cake out of that. They really are focused on that idea. And god's idea and there people that just they. They don't believe god's idea they think it's it's baloney they just don't think they're any men like us who really care about women at were children. They were about ourselves now. You know we can't convince them but we can live differently and to me that's a promise keepers is. It's about helping men to live differently so that the people in their lives at least see that difference and see god through them so to me. It's just the most beautiful idea. And it's a cultural moment because we particularly need this now in the culture so i just want behalf of my audience to say. Thank you to you for stepping up and doing this. 'cause lives are going to be changed and i i. There's just no way to know. Think about the families that are going to be touched. Because i remember you know in the nineties when promise keepers was going on people's lives changed men came to god and their lives have been different for twenty five years so it's It's just beautiful. I'm so excited that this is finally happening in dallas stadium. And we're going to be pretty bold one of the things. The promise keepers did not do in the nineties that we're doing now is stand for life so we are adamantly antiabortion pro-life which promise keepers wasn't and i said if you can i tell men to be men be courage courageous if they're not doing anything about the one and a half million babies being murdered in the womb right now but part of the way that we fight that is by getting mended. Stand up to the responsibilities and take responsibility for the baby. They conceived because the majority of women say they had an abortion because the man took off being. Leon man say that again because very few people know this. This is the key. Please say that they're true. The actual Surveys that have been done. Fifty five percent of women and i suspect it's much higher. Say they had an abortion because the man who fathered that baby left. Okay so men are the ones that from abortions and my wife who's been working in that world for quite a while she has told me over and over that the statistics show that if a woman is has an unplanned pregnancy if anyone and especially the man will step up and say i will walk with you through this time to have this child. I will help you. everything changes. The media doesn't cover that they don't cover that and they keep portraying it as this beautiful wonderful thing for a woman to kill her baby and to ruin her life. But you can't talk about the wounding because you're supposed to celebrate this. That harms women folks. It harms women. Men get off scot-free they walk away and the fact that you guys are dealing with this promise keepers. That's good news. That is thrilling. We're not going to shy away from these issues. We gotta get that. The other thing is we will take on racial reconciliation from a biblical worldview. Everything starts with repentance of sin on the grace of jesus you know what is what is racism ultimately. It's just image spiritual immaturity to look down on anybody for any reason. Class education race denomination. It's all spiritual immaturity or taken that onto. Because i've seen the results of this when i was a cop in south central los angeles we had ninety. Five percent of the people. Were really good. People's is compton watts. For for new yorkers don't know but the really really high crime area these were ninety five percent of good people that were held hostage by five percent of what fatherless boys a macho attitude boys never learned self control it was all about violence and sexual promiscuity and that culture is now spreading like a virus across america. We need to bring fathers back to teach their sons self control respect for women and but that's all sort of symptom the core getting right back to it since the great jesus being filled the holy spirit. Those are the things that changed people from the inside out. So we're gonna tell men you are not a lustful creature that can help yourself. You're a guy living in your flesh and when you start to live in the spirit those things change from the inside out so we're not gonna tell you. Hey try really hard to be a better guy. Try really hard not to lust after women are try really hard not to look at pornography or going to tell men you need to change from the inside. I was talking to a famous Spiritual leader who tell me. Can you gotta stop telling guys to repent of pornography to stop looking at it. They need counseling. They need a whole process. And he lectured me for a while. And i said so. You're telling me that. What i shouldn't say is if you're i causes you to stumble cut it out of your head. It's better to them with one item and with too. 'cause that's what jesus said i'll how about if i go with what jesus said in you preach your little stuff doesn't mean guys don't necessarily need counseling. Jesus said repent. And i'll change you from the inside out. Jesus didn't say go find counselor. That's the kind of humble but direct talk. We're going to have man-to-man in the stadium in a few days. And so i'd say by the way in the nineties. Forty five percent of the tickets sold the promise keepers result of women descend their husbands and their sons ladies. Get your husband's there. Tell them the best thing you can do for our marriage. At and t. stadium because we're going to run up some real talk with your that see. That is a fact. I know that and i and i know men whose lives were changed. Their families were blessed. Their wives were blessed. So you have to be careful. I really say to anybody listening yesterday. Careful not to give a ear to these detractors. In a funny way that is the enemy using that situation to distract us. Just blow it off. That's like you try. You know it's like to you're trying to put out a fire and save lives and somebody says hey you know i. I don't like something about you are. You're not listening to them..
