How Democrats Rigged a Presidential Election with Mollie Hemingway
"But kind of walk through some of the things that you found in researching this because this is one of the most under research topics in the history of news. You have the entire news media just not just uninterested, but they're invested in making sure you don't talk about it. Exactly right. So one of the things that I think is very interesting is that the same democratic operative who ran the Russia lie. That was the lie that Donald Trump stole the 2016 election by colluding with Russia. His name is Mark Elias. He was at Perkins cooey which is this big democratic firm. He recently left to start his own firm at more money and have more power and control. And he was the one that funneled the secretive Russia lie. That was where Hillary Clinton paid for opposition research. It was just inventions, lies, that Donald Trump was planning to steal the 2016 election and that he did steal the 2016 election. They actually have kept it going, this entire time. His name is Marc Elias. He's also the guy who ran the democratic operation to change all voting laws leading up to the 2020 election. And that meant different things in different states. So that could be about watering down the integrity of mail in balloting, that could be expanding the period of time in which you vote so that you're not really sure how many people voted or when they have to get their ballots in by. And he has this array of different groups that he works with, whether they're democratic operatives or nonprofit nonpartisan groups that are actually just kind of arms of the Democratic Party, who would have them file lawsuits. And so it was just this wide ranging operation to weaken the integrity of the election system. And because of COVID, you know, this is something that he had been wanting to do for decades, but because of COVID, suddenly all these judges or other people were more amenable

If You're Not Prepared to Think Biblically, Be Careful
"And if you're not prepared to really think biblically in the power and the wisdom of the Holy Spirit, be careful because the enemy wants to use scripture against God. He did it when he quoted scripture in the wilderness to Jesus. So I just want to challenge my fellow Christians and conservatives. Be careful because people's real lives are at stake, whether it's the Jew that's being hunted by the Gestapo, whether it's somebody like Sasha, suffering in a Ukrainian orphanage or whether it's the innumerable Americans and people around the world who are suffering horribly because Biden is ostensibly the president of the United States. Be careful. Let's use a real example Eric. For example, French, again, David French, a writer formerly of national review, and now with the dispatch, here's a guy who postures as a conservative Christian who's who's arguments in his articles are rooted in scripture. This is the claim. He of stated very clearly that he hoped Biden would win the election. And then recently, he wrote an article to comfort Christians who are concerned about the very real possibility that the Hyde amendment, which prevents an additional 50,000 abortions a year that the Biden amendment is excuse me. The Hyde amendment is now imperiled. And so you're going so on the one hand, you have you have told the Gestapo that you have Jews in your basement. And now you're ringing your hands and saying to everyone, now listen, I know that this looks really grim and it looks bad because heading into the basement with their machine guns, but hey, God is sovereign. And this kind of stuff is simply
Andy Surabian on 2016 and the Power of Trump's Appeal
"Back with my former White House colleague, special assistant to president Trump Andy Sarah. We've talked about 2016. We've talked about how you got involved in politics. When he talked to us about the last four years plus 9 months, talk to us about the political landscape has the GOP actually internalized what happened in 2016 and where is the stop laughing? And where is the maga movement today, Andy? I think there are aspects of the Republican Party that have internalized why president Trump was so successful and why does appeal was what it was? I don't want to name names because some of these guys, I like and I'm Friends with, but you can certainly see certain senators and congressmen who have kind of alter how they talk, what issues they focus on over the last several years. And there's a reason for that because I think there is an element of the Republican Party that has figured out his appeal and understands it. I also think there's an element a big element, unfortunately, the Republican Party that either a never understood his appeal or even worse be understood as appeal and hated him for it. And those are the Paul ryans of the world who were ideologically opposed to Donald Trump on issues like immigration in trade. I mean, I think Paul Ryan probably understood Trump's appeal, but he just hated
How Mark Zuckerberg Bought the 2020 Election
"A new story from the federalist says the 2020 election wasn't stolen, it was bought by Mark Zuckerberg. This is a true story of the account of how Mark Zuckerberg privatized the government's voter registration and vote counting for Democrats in 2020. The founding fathers always believed that if there was power there must be a check and a balance against that power. What is our check and balance against Mark Zuckerberg, spending $400 million during the 2020 election, Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, spent hundreds of millions of dollars to turn out likely democratic voters. But this wasn't traditional political spending William Doyle from the federalist rights. He funded a targeted private takeover of government election, operations by nominally non partisan, but demonstrably ideological nonprofit organizations. This was done through the center for technology and civic life CTCL. We've talked about this in great detail on the show, but this new story from the federalist is shocking. We talk we are always under, we are always accused. You are a threat to democracy as we did on the show previously, just type in threat to democracy and then go to news the Pandora papers are a threat to democracy. Trump is a threat to democracy, Bloomberg, how to save democracy. New York Times had a Conor how to counter pro Trump extremism and threat to democracy. Now, we are a republic not a democracy. But if you read this story, who's the real threat that democracy? The guy playing golf at Mar-a-Lago? Or the $420 million spent by Mark Zuckerberg, who put money into local government official races, and it came with strings attached.
How a Texas School Board Tried to Silence Minister Jeremy Story
"The larger narrative it seems to me is that as a result of what's happened in the country over the last couple of years, we are noticing that school boards are not what we thought they were. They are places of tremendous power, local power. And the people who run them are not doing the job that they're hired to do. This is a particularly horrific example. It's an amazing example. You have 7 kids. You've got skin in the game. You care about the schools in your area. And you are doing your duty as a father and as a minister to try to bring some light to a monstrous sounds like criminal situation. And for that even gets worse. You go ahead. I went to another school board meeting after they carried me out of that one. Which they had no right to do. They literally carried me out while I was making public comments. And before I even got to the stand, the board president tried to keep me from speaking. This is a normal public comment period where they had called me up. And I was testifying and they literally drew me off the stand. The video is all there. But the worst part is I went to another board meeting a month later. And they had stationed police officers outside the doors of the board meeting to guard the doors and they were not letting parents in, which is a violation of the Texas of a meeting Zack. They had taken a 375 person seat auditorium, taken all the seats out of it except for 18 and told people if you did not sit in one of those 18 seats. You were going to be

What Ever Happen to Teaching the Common Core?
"About a decade ago our government and I guess the Department of Education all of that might be a bit of a press came out with a thing called common core And they hired the experts and education on the subjects at hand that they were going to educate on and every one of those guys that they hired as an expert quit in disgust when they found out what they were going to be trying to teach the kids And this is a fine example of what you're always talking about How these people pay no attention to the people who they are supposed They are representatives and they work for us but yet they pay no attention to us more No this is what was pushed and indoctrinated into a lot of people starting about a 120 years ago with the so called progressive intellectuals They're not much interested in democracy voting representative government they say all these things They're interested in this massive administrative state where so called experts are in charge I don't know why people are considered experts just because they're bureaucrats or just because they're members of the teachers union or just because they get elected to Congress What makes them experts They're not experts Most of them are hacks Many of them are tenured Many of them can't be touched for their touch for their stupidity and they're incompetence And this is what we're dealing with This is in a matter of expertise It's a matter of power and control but you're exactly
Can a Nation Survive If Its Elite Hate What the Nation Stands For?
"Professor Hansen canon nation long survive if it's elite hates what the nation stands for? Is that a too obvious a question for 2021? No, you know it can't. And we all know what can. It's even it's even more troubling. It can not exist unless what the Greeks call the meso or the middle people do not exist in numbers. And by that, I mean, you have to have a check on the power and the inside leverage of the wealthy and you can not be dependent on the government as the poor. But the middle class is what topical said that's what the federalist papers show. That's what Eric going back to Aristotle. You have to have an independent economically viable middle class. And that can be an independent truck driver or a small business person a teacher, but they have to have property. They have to be engaged politically and they have to be immune from the enticements and the threats of government and the

Arizona on Trial With Attorney General Mark Brnovich
"And so one thing I respect about you, you're a real person, which I respect a lot because everyone in this business seems to not be, but you're also not like letitia James where you're trying to abuse power? And so I know you have to be careful the way you talk about these things. I just want to say that for our audience. But I want to ask about it because it is a big issue so you sent these two letters out regarding the voter registration list maintenance and the notice of submission to review findings and a request for written response to the Maricopa board. Tell us about these two letters as like we still try to kind of figure out what happened, post 2020. I respect the fact that you mentioned that you're limited. In New York and I always say to folks that, look, I'm not like the clowns in New York. I'm not going to reach a conclusion and then try to find facts or conjecture to support it, which is total of you. Because because at the end of the day, and this goes back to what we were just talking about. When you're the government, when you're a prosecutor, literally there's statutes and ethics that you have to abide by. And unfortunately, sometimes the courts and, you know, they take a different view and you have liberal or democratic EG's or prosecutors doing something versus when we do it. And we can maybe talk about that in a second, but I do want to say so that any prosecutor worth their salt knows not only because the ethical legal limits, you have to be careful what you say because if you say too much in the front end, then either a judge or even a defense attorney in front of the jury's going to say, aha, he did this or she did this and they did this case or charges case this way because they had said this or their bias or their prejudiced or somehow you get in a position where someone's going to try to have you recused or say that there's a conflict. So you have to be really, really careful what you say. So let me just say from the very beginning, our office supported the right to set the Senate to the audit. We literally filed paperwork we filed formal documents in court saying they had the right to do the audit. And the court agreed with us. And when the county was not turning over information, you may recall that we literally sent the county formal notification that if they did not turn over all the documents requested by the Senate, they would lose $700 million of state funding. So what the Senate is doing with how they did the audit what they're doing with the audit. What they did with their settlement county, that's their business. Because I believe once again, separation of powers and there's only certain things, you know, the attorney general prosecutor
Getting to Know Arizona's Attorney General Mark Brnovich
"Kircher with us today is the attorney general of the great state of Arizona, Mark brnovich. Welcome. Thanks, Charlie for having me on. So I can't wait to get into what I call the cartel of the colleges because you have some things that you really want to dive into that your office has been working on about corruption and higher education. Those are my words you can be more precise because you diplomatic? Yeah, that's right. But I don't have to be and I also want to kind of talk about some of the new things your office has released in regards to voter registration material and some other things regarding the Arizona audit and the election. But first, I just want you to introduce yourself to our audience. I think that would be really helpful. Tell us your story how you became, you know, attorney general of Arizona, and also I want to say that attorney general Burnham is running for U.S. Senate, which is a very important Senate race. So please introduce yourself. Well, thank you, Charlie. I always tell folks that if you want to know about me, you probably should know about my background in my history. And so I'm a first generation American, my family fled communism. And when your family has not just studied history but live it lived it, you have this great appreciation for how unique freedom is. And, you know, we know that folks like Ronald Reagan used to talk about freedom is never one more than one generation away from extinction. And, you know, my family live that. And that's why I'm so passionate about the constitution and our liberties. And so much of my career has been spent as I was raised that we have to protect freedom and we have an obligation to give back because this is the greatest country in the world. So, you know, I'm a public school kid. I still live in the same neighborhood. Neighborhood I grew up here in Arizona. I was a gang prosecutor at a law school. In fact, I met my wife there and she's now actually on the federal bench. So, you know, anybody was anything about federal judges. There's an old joke that what's the difference between God and a federal judge? God was wrong once I'm kidding. No, no, no, no. Hey, you're gonna get struck by lightning. Don't be saying that. No, no, God doesn't think he's a federal judge. But anyway, no, she's amazing, but then worked at the AG's office, a bit of federal prosecutor. Served our country in the army reserve. I worked at a think tank called the Goldwater institute where I wrote a lot and wrote briefs on the importance of property rights and individual liberty. And so I had never thought I was going to ever run for any office and I was brought up this real strong sense of that when you're the government, when you can take away people's livelihoods, their life, liberty property. You have to have the most highly qualified, but also the most ethical people in those office and people that understand how much power you have when you're the government.

What We Know About Covid-19 Vaccines for Kids
"This focus on getting children vaccinated should send a chill to every single person listening to this. Children are not at a serious or significant risk of getting seriously ill from the foul virus let alone dying from the virus. Children are statistically in more danger riding as a passenger in a car then contracting and dying from the chinese corona virus but instead this is about a couple of things the two. Ps that dr f- ouchi power and prophets. This is not about trying to save children's lives. in fact we have more evidence to show. According to a new store at california of two children that had adverse events to the chinese virus vaccine other countries are pulling the vaccine for children. Many scandinavian countries are saying. We're no longer going to use the vaccine for children. Too many adverse events that are happening.

"What without giving away trade secrets here. What's the next ten years. Oh wow that's really hard. Because covert his change some things you know anybody who who had a ten year roadmap. It's not quite not quite the same as it used to be right. And so i feel as we're kind of coming out of it but we've been at a crossroads of digital photography for quite some time where we're watching manufacturers go more to murless bodies. Our lenses don't dsl orleans by scientific nature physically cannot mount without destroying censor because of the way they're engineered and consumers don't always understand that it's especially when for all these years it takes year nikon shooter. For example nikon has allowed all these older mounds to be used on modern digital cameras. And now we're finding that it's going to be a little more difficult going to full frame merely situation. So how do we address that. How do we innovate put out new glass. That people want without upsetting the people who are not getting on the train with us yet and it's hard for every manufacturer. Everyone is going about it differently. And you know trying to trying to make their own way through that i mean for us. The last me see. I mean even during koga dive released a good amount of lenses but they have all been meritless lenses full frame and a couple a pse style lenses. And so. That's what we're starting to see now is an actual need for or desire from the consumer for an abc meritless lens which was a little unexpected in the entertainment. World i can mount a full frame lens on crop sensor or full frame and vice versa. So even if i put that crop lands on a full frame i can deal with my beautiful black circle. I might have an artistic use for it or nowadays with these modern Full frame airless cameras. We can dumbed down our sensors right. I don't ever have to see that. Black around it. If i don't want to or sometimes the camera will auto handle that for me. So we're seeing that lenses new orleans maybe even becoming a little more versatile. Some things have held true. This one fifty to five hundred. That i finally released. I've been asked about something like that for people for a long time. Just because you're deals are birds. Shooter doesn't mean there isn't a murless bird shooter out there too. That's looking for that same style. I don't think we're going to get too much longer than what we've already had five hundred six hundred occasionally at eight hundred millimeter.

"Choose from you can find the right moment. As cartier brisson would say the decisive moment of win. Is it really calving. Or as i had its calving and then all of a sudden seagull decides to fly right in front of my camera. And i could catch that again. Thinking of video is it's done and going back to autofocus. How much of autofocus the cameras responsibility and how much of. It is the lenses ability to respond right. So and that's this is a little technically tricky. So the cameras responsible for all the battery power of autofocus so we got to think about that way without without the cameras power. The lens isn't gonna do it. There is communication that has to occur back and forth and it has to occur extraordinarily fast rate of speed to know where it needs to go. Or when you've pushed right if you have pressed that button and you want that bird. Fat manufacturers camera doesn't hit that bird you're not gonna like their cameras so much so it's the ability to lock on whether on censor af as we see with murless cameras af points which is technically just almost impossible. We've kind of figured that out a lot in the last five years or whether it's something as a mirror box where we have a separate dedicated sensor just af sensor that has our points in it is the motor itself can be in the lens. It can be in the camera or no so the lenses so the motor drives are always in the lens if if the camera has auto focus and as where sometimes a motor drives. I'm getting a little confused in my mind. They are always going to be in the lens when we talk about stabilization. That's where i was getting confused because that's a motor drive as well to a degree. Some of those are in lens and now we're seeing manufacturers. Put them in body instead. Why is the in body image stabilization so popular. It isn't that much better than vibration. Reduction confused me in the beginning because if you think back to the beginnings of af and stabilization and stuff like that nobody ever chose to try and stabilize an a frame of film right when we're moving something around inside of a lens to stabilize. It's pretty lightweight i would think as compared to trying to move a whole sensor module but i don't i don't know that for a fact because i'm not an engineer. People who run ibis are passionate about it and they're passionate about i think because it gives them more opportunities to use creative lenses. That's where we start to get into all these extra accoutrements that you can put between the lens. And the and the camera body to make things matchup like i can put that pets ball lens on an eighty seven three or or a fuji system or something like that..

"And that's because this is how we've always done it and then it gets were polishing down to micron sizes and then after we've got these things polish down. We then have to pair them with different shaped lenses to get the optical formulas that we're specifically looking for utah optical formulas. Tell me what the differences again physically between thirty five millimeter prime and a thirty five millimeter macro lens. I mean i know what they do. But but physically. What's different in the lens right. So it's the it's the ability for the optics to give you the one to one representation. That's where it is. All lenses by nature are going to give you a you know roughly a lotta times twenty five percent magnification even though if you go to my website. You're never going to see twenty-five percent magnification. There is a magnification ratio. And you can read into that if you want to just like a one to one ratio as an example if i look at your ten to twenty four right now. It's a maximum. Magnification ratio is one to five point three. So that's what it's doing. It's the ability for a lens to not only let light through clearly but in large slightly. Because why well because that's what true macro would be whatever. The dime is the same size on the sensor as it is in real life and so very okay right that. So that's that's all we're doing. As an example. We have three primes out. Right now for sony gear. That is their half macro. And what are the benefits of that is is well. What if you don't know a lot about macaroni. Just want to get started. Well you can buy two hundred dollars prime lens and see if you like this or you can try and use it creatively and know that it's already a little sharper in the center because half macro and so if i want to do something portrait wise or if i want to shoot the flowers outside a mardi gonna get something slightly different than what that normal prime lens would do didn't have any kind of macro feature as compared to jumping immediately into a one to one macro situation where those lenses regardless of who makes them are going to be two to three times. The price initially just to get started talking about price. Really do fret over lenses and do lots of research. When i read something like you know my my lens has a high low torque modulated drive i you know i'm glad it does Should i care well. I believe that you should only in some very specific circumstances. That might shoot. That might suit you for what you shoot these days. What we're seeing is videography with the advent of throwing ten eighty and four k. into digital cameras. we're now seeing videography. They think they want this lens. It's great and then they realized that the motor drive in it is just causing them to hear all kinds of useless sound in their video cards. Yeah they don't like that. The other reason i would stay in this goes to my background in photojournalism. A little bit is there are places where i don't wanna be hurt. I don't want to be seen and i have to be a photojournalist to have that happen. What if on the nature. Wildlife burder shooter. That's you know in a very specific quiet place.

"You've got to zoom lense. Let's say it's just making this up now. Twenty two seventy and you have a fifty millimeter prime when the zoom is set at fifty millimeters. What's the difference right. So my guess right off the bat again is going to be price and weight but also it's not completely apples to apples. Say you i manufactured that lends and you bought the sp version of it and my prime fifty millimeter prime. If i manufactured that would be an sp as well. I would expect there to be as long as they were manufactured created in roughly the same timeframe like within five three five years. I would expect the technology to be pretty similar. Pass that why you gave the caveat in the beginning was you did. Is you know there's still plenty of Out there in the world. And i love them dearly. Who believe it. A prime lens has fewer moving parts. So it's easier for the light to transmit through it's always going to be sharper etc etc and we know all those aspects and so i've been in this side of the industry for almost a decade now and i spent the first half being a prime shooter vein very specific and and these days i see zuma's for multiple manufacturers that just have high quality to them and i feel as i can trust them much more than maybe i ever could sometimes in in the film world so you would argue on a standard day. A fifty millimeter setting on zoom in a fifty millimeter prime are indistinguishable if they were both. The high quality optics. I'm not gonna. I'm not gonna compare an sap lens to say you know like an eighteen to four hundred for example right which is a great all around lens. But that's what it's made for. It's made for all around. It's not made for immediate sharpness. Okay tell me about glass. I'll tell a little story here. When my son was in cub scouts we went to a pepsi manufacturing or bottling plant and they talked about the filtration of the water you know. Why is it that every can of pepsi all over the planet tastes the same and there was a lot of thought put into the manufacturing of the water before the syrup and all that was added i would imagine in the lens industry. The manufacturing of glass is half magic in half technology. Tell me how glass for ron lens comes to be so it would be the same as it is for everyone else as as i understand it. There's very few at least photographic glass foundries left in the world a. Do believe there's a big one in germany which is where a lot of zeiss things come from. And there's one left in in japan which is kind of shared around. I don't know if it's still owned by fuji. Or if it's hoya who's got that so we'll get a blank which could be square could be circular but it is coming out of block that we can already guarantee has x. amount of quality to it before it comes to us then depending on the lens it's going to go into we will have it machine-polished or hand polish and that's where it gets really amazing. There are some lovely little japanese people hanging out that this is an art form for them. You know there's ten people in the country that can do what they do kind of situation or we know with any given company..

"They're low dispersion extra low dispersion floor elements than there the coatings which now in the industry. We're starting to see quite a few more of but what we're also starting to see and this is really the catch if i can tell you a funny story for minute. I said at dinner after a small trade show in baltimore one time and the. There's a very large repair facility here in the us that we're visiting and doing cleaning checks and at this dinner after the nights over he looked at myself and someone to other people from other manufacturers and got mad at us and he said you guys want to get in this sensor war but you you don't realize how difficult it is to put out glass to keep up you know these size sensors that we have and the way we've come bout. That is the ability for the user to make adjustments in camera because as we try and mass produce anything if you think about mass producing a sensor and having shinned correctly for any given lens that gets put on it it can be a little difficult so when we allow any kind of customizable adjustment inside of a camera or inside of a lens such as we have tapping console which mounts on the back and i opened a small piece of free software and i can adjust certain focus issues and things of that nature that if i do find it i i don't worry about having to call a customer service hotline right. I just adjusted myself. And those are the three big ways the the lenses inside the coatings and self adjustment. Does the lens really care. What kind of sensors behind it. No not one. Well okay. no it doesn't but to your question. The consumer should for the lens the consumers should think for the and one of the ways to think about it. Is you remember the first time you ever saw ten. Eighty p thought. Whoa that's too sharp. I remember seeing myself. And i thought i don't need that..

"The same thing happens with that very front element so even though we put tools on fraud or we have them built in such as like a fifteen to thirty situation where you have these more robust lenses with built in hoods to protect we have that large element there and some molded plastic around it. And then we're going to start getting into what we would consider groups of lenses. Now every lens is going to be different all equal and they have as example. I pulled up. Just because i knew that was your favourite lens. So let's just talk about it right now for this one specifically we are looking at sixteen elements so sixteen lenses in eleven different groups inside of that lent and all that tells you is the groups and the quantity of elements. They have to work in tandem to provide you whatever that lenses doing. So that lenses either giving you super wide angle or aperture and that's kind of what helps determine that For us now depending on the type of lens as we work through you know there's three or four different types of elements that could be in there and then many times. There is a what we call a tam world a vcr vibration compensation and a nikon world. You know it is vr. A canon shooter would know it as i 's image stabilisation so there's a module inside of there which has a really awesome little donut shape circuit board and some magnets and some ball bearings etc. And things going on that actually stabilize a very very small element inside of their. You know we're not trying to move around big pieces of glass because we would need more battery power for that so then as we work through that and get out the back and we deal some more specific elements usually we hit amount and that amount is in our world. it's going to be a nikon canon. A sony there. We still produce one micro four thirds and unfortunately i love the fuji systems but we do not manufacturer fuji lens at this time brought all sorts of questions..

Well hello everyone and welcome to another podcast from frames magazine. My name is scott olsen and today folks today. We're doing something that the frames podcast has never done. Not once not ever. We're going into new territory. We're talking about gear. We are talking about technology. We're talking about probably the most important thing in a photographer's bag and that is lenses and the reason we're talking about lenses is because i've found myself looking at new lenses reading technical descriptions marveling at over all the things they promised and not understanding a word of what seem to be inside a lens so today we're not so much talking about this lens versus that lens or or what to buy we are going to dissect lenses we're gonna take them apart. We're going to try and figure out what's on the inside and we have probably one of the most well informed and articulate explainers of lenses in the world jared power who is a technical representative for tamraz is is with us today. Jared how you doing today. I'm doing all right sir. I'm glad to be here looking forward to this. This is going to be a lot of fun. Jared you represent a company that makes lenses for the main camera manufacturers. Tampons does an awful lot more than just lenses for cameras. So just here at the beginning. Tell me a little bit about tamra. How big is the company. Tell me what it scopus sure so. We were founded in nineteen fifty. This is our seventy first year.

It's been three years and i say that being a jumper is the best superpower ever and he says he wants to be able to freeze time. What do you mean being jumper like. If i like close my eyes i could be in hawaii for lunch real quick. And then. Okay right yeah. There's a movie about it called jumper and that's why to me. It's jumping but he thinks that it's way better to be able to pause time because then you can have whatever amount of time you want to do anything but to me. That doesn't account for travelling or traffic. No i don't know if any of you probably watched heroes. Did you guys know peter.

"At this age I. Think is frankly the US. It is. Look at you you. You are absolutely stunning in your loan your yet and I believe that so listeners if you want the anti aging secret is. Toxins let's talk. I think removing the toxins. Connecting things with rejuvenate and revive you and that includes relationships and an advocate of learning to tap into your intuition, because your intuition can help you with identifying what's helpful. What's not you know? What to do, when not to do and I think that's so key because you know, it's very difficult sometimes to. Learn from society. For example, it's actually be good because there's so much convoluted information whether it's about chemicals or politics, or you know whatever. When you learn to kind of TAP. Into your body has a lot of the way that our intuition of through our body. They learn to. Understand. What is our body? What is our higher self? What is our deeper south trying to communicate with us? So powerful! I can't agree more on that. So how can people get a hold of you see? Somebody wants to work with you. is there. What's the best way? Sure say for my psychic work, because I also do a lot of creative work of wealth and my psychic work website had healing powers dot net. The power thought net, and I have a podcast healing powers podcast, which is on all the major powers where we talk about all these things mind body spirit I feel like you.

"So I had to eliminate eat. I was allergic to wheat and Sway with another trigger for me an sugar. To eliminate sugar, and as I eliminated these things, my body shifted. It also helped me tune into my abilities I. WanNa bring that up, which is really important because. There's a very strong connection between what's happening physiologically in her body in our ability to intuit and use our psychic abilities so two major parts of the body actually three. There's another one that the guy they're telling me to talk about that. We use for our abilities are got. And the brain, the third is believed to be in the pineal gland, which isn't a brain, and then we've all familiar with that idea of like gut, feeling the gut intuition, so if your gut is. Literally messed up or having her gender gestion. If you have pain, if you're you know, have slowness in terms of your digestion. You're congested either in the sinuses or the got you know by the way there's this got action so like if you feel something what like if you have sinus problems guaranteed, you have got issues right there so connected, and then the third place says your heart. So we feel a lot from our heart center, obviously and anytime we have health issues in any of those areas. It's going to impact our ability to connect into it and feel what's going on the for me. There was a huge process of going through releasing. You know kind of dietary toxins and things like that, but after eight cleaned up, okay cleaned up my relationships that cleaned in my diet. The next thing that I was guided to shift were toxins, and it was interesting, because by the time this showed up for me, I'd already. been hosting my health podcasts for while and I thought I'm pretty healthy like I know what's going on, but there's so much greenwashing that happens that I have Roddick's that I thought were clean and Green Ed, but then I was I was starting to develop like really strong physiological symptoms. So when when you first get a message about something, you might just get intuitive feeling or just they need to ship, and then when the longer you don't pay attention, the stronger your body reacts literally like Your Body will start, so what happened is I was starting to get like. You cleaners and thing in my eyes would start to water like horribly like it was just a constant.

"This happen very often. Spirits that are afraid to cross over or maybe they just aren't ready to let go. It could be sometimes. They just loved their life, and they just feel like no I'd like to hear. I don't WanNA leave, so it's not always something traumatic, but but most of the times when you're thinking of a haunting, it's usually series that are not in a good place kind of mentally emotionally. And maybe they had a about end or traumatic circumstances in their life, and they're still emotionally mentally in. In that space, and then you, that often feels very intense when they're around just like. If you were to be around a physical person gone through a lot of trauma, you know it's hard to be around that. You feel that as well and then when you add the element of not being able to see your since then, but sometimes you can, or they're moving things around, or and by the way you want to mention that aspect of spirits moving things around, and this is a real thing like I have seen physical objects move from spirits. Incredible stuff, but the profound implication of that is if a spirit can do it, and they're simply a person without a body. We could to I mean it's really wild when you start to really think about this. Yeah? Because what is reality, he no I mean really kind of opens yourself up to a whole nother realm and I love how you talk. Thank you for bringing in the the idea because what I don't want, I always try to think of those things and I I'm not talking like Xer, systems and demons, and that type of thing. You know I don't think it has to be scary. I don't think it has to be something to be fearful of or are scary I really do think that this is a lost soul trying to to get a message or finish you know something I. Don't know, but you know for. It has to be scary. I don't I don't think so either, I definitely one of the big things I'm trying to do is help. Alleviate fear about you. Know the spiritual Raum. Certainly. Are Part of that I? Think it goes it just important to think events like a person without a body, and you know they are going through their emotional aspects like they would've before, but also just keep in mind that you know people are people, and just because someone doesn't other body doesn't mean they're nicer, not nice automatically. So like there's not Nice People That doesn't mean you should be in fear of them all the time, but still recognize so so unfortunately with goes ones that tend to be the most infamous in that people know about are the ones where they are kind of intense and kind of scary and the other piece about that is that we see from our perspective, so for example once I was in West Hollywood at this is before I lived there, and I was at a bar and I i. just had the. Definitely having moton emotionally triggered evening I was with a friend and I glanced over..
"j powers" Discussed on The Toxin Terminator
"It wasn't chosen college that a family friend described ghost that I'd seen, but told no one about any described. This goes in detail that I recognized. This isn't my head like someone else's seen as I've and told them they volunteered the information you can't be. Be something. That's my hallucination. We don't end up like a joint hallucination. And so that was woefully comforting and kind of terrifying at the same time, because at that time I hadn't learned yet. How to have energetic spiritual boundaries of what I was experiencing was was pretty dark. It was intended that wasn't like a a positive loving thing that I was experiencing and it was pretty scary, and that's actually what got me to close it out to try to block it out as as like. Wow, this is real. This is scary. I don't know what to do. I'm just going to ignore it Right, right, we're very commonplace or people with these abilities. And and so do you the ability then to to only take in the positive are if he got it, you got it. You're going to get both the good and the bad. So. I think it's very much like a garden. The analogy I use in terms of. I feel our lives are this way as a whole, and it's just this way with this sort of spiritual aspect and energies in the non-physical realm as well. You know if you just get a plot of land, and whatever's going to grow, there is going to grow, and it's probably going to have weeds and things that you don't want there, and then you have to remove those things plant what you want to have in your garden. Lowers or fruits and vegetables or trees, or whatever that is and so. The thing most people just have not learned to do that. We haven't learned that we need to do that or how. So basically I didn't have any kind of set expectations, and I, wasn't doing anything just sort of manage or cultivate my energy, and what I loud it would be. A really weedy patch of land. Speaking. I just had to learn how to do that and it's not that simple I actually work a lot with angels. I know you resonate with angels and up one of the key tools that I used to help. Keep things clear so I. Think obviously there's going to be you know even when you have cultivated garden. They're still going to be wheat crop up here and again, and you have to weed them out, but once you do that big weeding..

Are there, are they? Are we just intertwining words for the same thing? Are there differences in those? Yeah, no there. They are different, but they're often conducted because you can have one person more than one so. Clear.
