"Well, listen, I mean, I say it over and over. The reason I have written these biographies that I've written in my book 7 women and 7 men and 7 more men, why? Because when you look at a life, you understand that how a person lives his life. Affects others. When you read about a Mother Teresa, when you read about any of the people that I write about, you say, I want to be like that. I want to affect people for good so that when I die, which I will, I will have done God's will during my years on earth. And how every one of us acts, not just the people in those books, but whatever you do and whatever I do and whatever everyone listening to my voice this minute, what you do and what you don't do and what you say and don't say will affect people around you. It's time to get busy to get part to become a part of what God is trying to do through you, but he won't force you. You have to open your heart to him and say, God, lead me, show me, what do you want me to do today? He wants us all to do something. And I want to tell you folks, there is joy in it. This is not some chore. This is not some works righteousness earning your way into heaven. It's being a part of God's story in our time. It's why we're on this planet. Do not miss it. Jason Jones, we love you. Thank you for your time. Folks, please go to the great campaign dot org. Thank you, Jason. Thank you. Folks, welcome back. In our two today, I'm speaking to our friend Kevin McCullough, some of you know him as votes, votes for damas. Who knows who prognosticates about politics, unfailingly, just in the way that Nostradamus did predicting Hitler and he's asked nation of the kennedys. So votes drew domus welcome. Hey, Eric good to be with you. Now listen, I want to have a substantive conversation with you today in our two. Some people already listen to that substantive conversation. But before you and I have a fun free willing substantive conversation, I have to say in our one today, I spoke to Jason Jones, folks. I'm asking you to share these programs if you're signed up at Eric metaxas dot com for my newsletter. We send you the rumble videos. And I'm begging you to share this stuff. Because we are being boxed out, the truth is being boxed out. We need your help, so please go to Eric metaxas dot com, sign up for the newsletter. Sign your friends up, let them know. We need to share the kinds of things that we talk about on here. What I just said with Jason Jones tomorrow, I have John samira con talking about something very, very important. Well, a lot of important stuff. I also want to let you know a couple of things. We are desperately trying to raise funds for people suffering in Ukraine. As you know, because of the malfeasance of this horrific pseudo administration in The White House, everything is going wrong. And human beings are suffering. And we are commanded by God to care for our fellow man to do what we can. So I, in this month, we've been partnering with food for the poor, whom we value tremendously. They are an extraordinary Christian relief organization, food for the poor, has partnered with other relief organizations, and they are bringing food to starving families who have fled their homes in Ukraine because of the war, which I think I've already said. Was made possible by Joe Biden at Al. So I'm asking you, please, please go to metaxas talk dot com. You'll see the banner. Now there's a lot of stuff to see there. I hope you visit there regularly. There's all kinds of stuff there. But I'm asking you to go there specifically today to metaxas talk dot com to help those who are suffering. When mothers can't feed their kids, can you imagine? Can you imagine what that's like? I know what that's like because my mother has told me the story. Of when she was a little girl, similar situation. After World War II, there was no food in Germany. People were starving. My great aunt, whom I write about in my book, fish out of water. Sent care packages. If it weren't for her care packages, my mother and family might have starved. We are being asked to do that. We are able to do that through food for the poor. Because there are mothers who can't feed their kids. It's that serious. So whatever you can do, go to metaxas talk dot com, please do it today. Anyone who can give any tax deductible gift, we put your name in a hat and we will give all kinds of grand prizes to any of you, whatever amount you give. We just want everyone to participate. Anybody who's able to give $10,000 and I know many of you are, we need your help and I'd be privileged to spend an evening with you will work it out in whatever city and the details. I also want to give you a phone number to call 8 four four 8 6 three hope 8 four four 8 6 three hope 8 four four 8 6 three hope. We desperately need your help. There are people suffering. I just can not imagine what it is to be unable to feed your own kids. That must rip a parent's heart.

We're in a Spiritual Battle, So What Can YOU Do?

"At the heart of all of this and you get this very well and it's important we say that we're in a spiritual battle. People say, what can I do? What can I do? I would say the first thing you can do folks is read the Bible every day, give your heart to Jesus and ask him to lead you and guide you. Things are so bad that I'm being very clear about that. If somebody says, what can I do? Do that first. Do that first. Read the Bible. And open your heart to the God of the Bible, ask him to speak to you. I promise you he will, not maybe in the way that you think, but it doesn't matter. You will see that he wants a relationship with you. He made you for that. And really, only then can you be deployed effectively for his purposes because there's so many things to be concerned about. So many things that we might do. Question is what will you do?

We, As a Nation, Have Drifted so Far of Course

"It's just astonishing that we as a nation in America have drifted, drifted, drifted so far from governing ourselves from being responsible for electing leaders that we know are doing what is right, what it is the will of we the people to do. And we now have a deep state, a bureaucratic state, an administration that seems to me to be working against the founders view of America against we the people, it is the kind of a nightmare none of us thought we could see in our lifetimes. But we're seeing it before our eyes. What happened a year ago, August 15th in Afghanistan is just one example of a level of wickedness, evil, against suffering people. So what do you think we can do politically? I mean, there are many people that are serious Christians who don't vote. I just want to say shame on you, folks. If your theology led you to that, your theology could lead you to do every kind of sick thing. That's between you and God, but I'm here to let you know that is unacceptable and you're wrong. You're not just wrong. You're harming people.

"And so that is something else that we're doing as an organization. What's the website, Jason? How can we find you and the website? It's the great campaign dot org, the great campaign dot org, the great campaign dot org if people want to help you, they can go there. And we need help. Yeah, if they want to help us, they can, you know, their donation will go to the supportive safe houses, delivering food. We just rescued a girl Eric this week. She's done her way to the European Union. The European Union country this week, she had been hiding, we codenamed her aunt because she'd been hiding in an addict since August of last year. She was a young woman in her mid 20s from a wealthy family, but had been left alone in Afghanistan. They got out without her. And she had been very vocal on social media against the Taliban and was literally hiding at an addict where we had food delivered to her. Can you imagine if Anne Frank had a smartphone? And this young woman found me on LinkedIn. So then we had to vet her. It's pretty funny if you see our taxes early on. I'm saying, are you a Taliban troll trying to capture my team? She said, I don't know if you're the real Jason Jones. Are you a Taliban troll trying to find where I'm hiding? And we had to gain each other's trust. My team surveilled the house and eventually went in and found her and we've been delivering her food. We moved her to a neighboring country. Where she emailed me that is a little girl, her father taught her how to ride a bike inside their house, but girls can't ride bikes on the street outside. So she'd always dreamed of riding a bike on the street. And now she rides her bike every day to a store to get her groceries and she can't imagine being so happy. This was a girl who just 6 weeks ago had been hiding for her life in an attic. So we support folks in hiding. We support safe houses. We support the evacuations. And the resettlement process. And beyond that, I sent you some videos, Derek, we just were given permission. We have armed security guards to protect girls schools that are left open, private girls schools, we now have armed security guards, closed captioned televisions, guardians, last girls schools from ISIS attacks, ISIS is attacking schools every day, and we just built our first women's medical center. Women are no longer allowed to go to the same hospitals as men. So in a lot of communities, that means women don't have access to basic healthcare. And I'm not talking about gender reassignment surgery and third trimester abortions. They can't get antibiotics. They can't see a doctor for anything. And so, you know, all those big aid organizations that were there when the U.S. government was throwing around billions of dollars. They've just evaporated Eric. It's just veterans groups and small Christian organizations. I say in humanitarian work, there's always palm Sunday when we change our profile picture and we have the frame with the flag and we all care so much and we go to the pet store and you can give an extra dollar for the cause. There's always palm Sunday and it passes pretty fast, but when these communities are nailed to the cross, like now in Afghanistan, you see Christian organizations and veterans organizations. And that's all that's left. Okay, the great campaign dot org, I have a very generous audience, we are raising money for food for the poor right now and has to be our priority because they've come to us to help refugees from Ukraine right now. And so I need people to go to metaxas talk dot com and to help food for the poor do that because suffering people are suffering people. But if in this conversation with Jason Jones, God has put it on your heart to help. I just want to say folks, we are such a wealthy nation in the United States. And most of us in the west, we have money to spare to do God's work. The great campaign dot org, the great campaign dot org is where you would go. Jason, what do people find if they go to that website? Are there videos there? Yeah, you can see videos of our latest school, our schools, our school security program. We just put a water system. There was one community we came across in the winter, our team, and 10% of the village had already been, we're already dead. They would go into the homes to check on them to survey their food needs. And they would be as if the whole family was sleeping, but the whole family was dead. It's very remote. So we really wrapped our arms around this community at the time we delivered four months of food for every family in this village on Christmas morning. And now we're putting in a well and a water system. You can see the video on that. Also our work in Ukraine Eric, just yesterday our anti mine teams in Ukraine removed 60 landmines from the farms. So we have an anti former green berets who are now in Ukraine and they're demining the farms because these tractors are hitting these anti tank mines..

"Relief factor dot com or call 800 for relief to find out about this offer, feel the difference. Folks welcome back it's Monday. Today is the anniversary. Of one year ago, the horror, the disaster. When the Biden administration pulled out of Afghanistan, leaving our friends behind just one of the most wicked monstrous moments. If it doesn't enrage you, if it doesn't move you, if it doesn't move you to do something for your country for what is right. I'm surprised you're listening to this program. Most people at this point listen to this program understand that we all have a duty to do what is right. And to prevent our country from doing things, such that it's done over the decades. This is not the only time. This is just the most recent and one of the absolute worst examples of America betraying America. And when we do that, we betray truth and we've betrayed vulnerable suffering people. I'm talking to Jason Jones. Who is the head of the vulnerable people project? I want to hear more about that and how people can find that website. And I also want to let you finish. You were just going to say that there are a number of things that you all are doing. And we were referencing Trump just as we went to the break. I hope we didn't lose people. I was obviously being ironic. You know, under president Trump went on to Biden in the midst of the collapse of Afghanistan. The processing of SIVs collapsed to 10% of what they were in the previous year under Trump. Okay, say it again. Under under who under Biden, the processing of special immigration Visa people. And we're going to be collapsed. So who are those people? These are Afghans who fought and the war on terror side by side with American soldiers, marines and sailors. And so we know they were especially targeted. As we saw in the days after the United States left Afghanistan, our Friends were hanging from lampposts all over Kabul, they were beheaded. They were set on fire, their children were killed, and this happened, Eric. And so my organization began moving as many of them as we could to safe houses. And one other organizations were looking to use planes. We realized that was going to come to an end when the U.S. left. So we began doing overland routes to all of the neighboring countries. To get these folks out. But under Biden in the midst of the collapse of Afghanistan, these SIV visas were processed 10% of what was done the previous year under Trump. You know, you see this with Trump, the JV team of ISIS, which was the JV team, committed a brutal genocide that was quickly put to an end, Obama seemed utterly confused and helpless to put it into the genocides in Iraq and Syria. Trump shut that down. And then what do we see happen? My staff laughs because I was on a call with a hundred people on Zoom call with the State Department and I said, well, you know what happens when Democrats come to power genocides erupt. So here we go. But that's sadly what happens. And so now we see the hazara facing genocide. We can't evacuate 39 million people from Afghanistan. But what we can do is, well, we are doing as an organization as first and foremost, resting on American citizens and green card holders and their children and their spouses, then we're moving on to SIVs where we're working to evacuate and then resettle SIVs. Those are the brave men and women that fought alongside of us. Something else we're doing, Eric. You know, I find a disorder. I founded VPP 20 years ago to work with communities facing genocide to show them how to run influence campaigns. How to have their voice heard. How to get publicity, how to recruit celebrities, but evacuating people from a country and collapsed. Is something is something new for us, but what I have learned what was really driven home by this for me is, what does it mean to care for widows and orphans? I always look at my organization as we help fathers help their families and impossible situations when they're facing genocide. And we are caring for widows and orphans whose husbands were killed because they fought alongside the U.S. armed forces. And if you go to our website, there's a beautiful video that one of these families, these young boys made honoring their father and his sacrifice fighting the Taliban. While they were left to starve last winter, when our organization our ground teams came upon them. So here is a woman and her children who were starving to death last winter because her husband fought side by side against the Taliban with us..

Jason Jones Joins Eric 1 Year After America Pulled Out of Afghanistan

"On our very, very dear friend, Jason Jones, Jason, welcome. Eric, thank you for having me on your show. It's always a joy to have you. There are so many aspects to you that I won't even have time to get into right now, but let's give my audience an overview. First of all, I know you in many ways through John's mirac, you and he have written things together, have done a lot of work together. And he was the one that suggested to me having you on today for this extraordinarily grim anniversary. So you are a man who wears many hats. Your film producer, you're a writer, you were involved in the movie Bella, the pro life film from 15 or so years ago, but you now head up something called the vulnerable people project and you've been helping some of these folks suffering in Afghanistan as a result of this wicked regime's policies. Oh, no. I don't mean the Taliban. I mean, the Biden regime who have no excuse for what they did and many of us are still trying to process how such things happen. But tell us the good news. Tell us what you've been involved in over this last year. Eric, well, the good news is we all haven't forgotten what happened a year ago today. So we at the vulnerable people project have been evacuating people out of the country. Every week since August of last year and but beyond that, we began to resettle folks that we've moved to countries. We've moved folks over the border to neighboring countries and began working with every country in the world that we could to begin finding our former Afghan allies who fought shoulder to shoulder with us against some of the worst terrorists in the world. And then we're left to die by the Biden administration. Now we are having some success resettling them to other countries.

Don't Miss What John Zmirak Has to Say About the FBI Raid

"John, you and I need to process what we couldn't process yesterday. Something unprecedented, something that I still am having a hard time making sense of, at least on some levels. But what happened the other night, why don't I let you tell the story? It is one of the most bizarre things certainly in my lifetime. I don't know what to make of it. I was on the phone with our good friend Jason Jones, wonderful human rights activist pro life back to this. And he told me the FBI has just rated Donald Trump's house in Mar-a-Lago. And I tell you, and I have a column about this coming out today. I had a feel. I had this experience. I had the feeling I had when I heard that news. Was the same feeling I had on 9 11. When I heard that the towers have been attacked, that The Pentagon had been attacked. We didn't know who did it. It might be Russia. It might be China. We had no idea at that point. A feeling like I'm in an elevator with a cable has snapped. I had that feeling one other occasion. The day in 1990 one when the hard line communists in Russia tried to overthrow Gorbachev and reimpose hardline communism. I had that same feeling of absolute vertigo. Like I was leaning out the window of the Empire State Building, looking down on an abyss. And I'll tell you why. That day, I realized that for most of my life, I assume that I knew how I would die in a nuclear war. There are nuclear explosions. I would not have grandchildren, but not of children. Nobody would remember me because all my Friends would be dead and everything I had ever known would be destroyed. That's how I grew up assuming I would die. And I had nightmares about it, where I would see my body get burned up by a blast wave or see myself dying of radiation in the wake of a nuclear war. And I was just that was the endgame that I assumed for my life and the life of everyone I knew. Until Gorbachev and Reagan worked out sort of ratcheted down the Cold War, I realized that on some level this dark certainty that had hung over my life had gradually lifted. And on that day in 1991, when the look like the communist generals were bringing back the Cold War, it all came rushing back. And I had a sense like I was falling. Same thing on 9 11 and the same thing yesterday. When I heard that the president of the United States was using the FBI like the secret police in Honduras or Guatemala or Venezuela or Liberia or Congo. We are in a lawless regime that will do anything to cling to power.

Tracy Robinson Shares Her Journey on the Matter of Abortion

"It's hard to overstate how monumental this is, how magnificent how important this is. Talk about that for a minute because your journey, talk about your journey with regard to this subject of abortion. You've been in the film business for some time. Yeah, it was just really surreal. Jason Jones, my friend Jason Jones posted a photo of the Supreme Court yesterday and there was a big rainbow over the Supreme Court. And it just blew my mind. It was just another you don't mean a cheesy mylar rainbow or a plastic. You mean a genuine, it was a genuine rainbow. It was a real thing. We love Jason Jones. And he's on top of this stuff. So this is true. There was a rainbow yesterday. Check it out on his Facebook. It's a true story. Well, so my journey began back in 2016, I am I was always in video and film production and primarily as a documentary video editor. That's really my specialty. That's been my career. And back at that time, I had been commissioned on and off to do testimonial videos and promotional videos for a pro life pregnancy resource center. And I had never heard of a pregnancy center before then before being commissioned by them. And I started to see the wonderful things they were doing to help women and help them in their time of crisis. Pregnancies and I met just some amazing people that had abortions in their past, but now they were healed and now helping women helping other people heal from their abortions. So I just thought, wow, this is a really loving center. There's a lot of good stories coming out of this. But I was essentially in the mushy middle when it came to abortion. Even as an evangelical Christian, I thought it wasn't a big deal in the grand scheme of things. I was apathetic at best. And I think if I were to be honest, I would say I was a pro choice Christian. I would probably say, I'm personally pro life, but who am I to take away that choice for

Well, Jason Jones and I co authored another piece at the stream called first China came for the Uyghurs and the Vatican said nothing. I don't know if people following China news. The most prominent Christian in China has just been arrested. Cardinal Joseph zen, 90 years old, he's the cardinal of Hong Kong. So he's from the part of China that was free until 1998 under British administration. And then was turned over to communist China. On the promise that it would retain its free political system. Of course, like all promises made by communists, that turned out to be a lie. And there have been crackdowns and arrests and China put into place a law that anyone in Hong Kong violated the Communist Party's authority could be shipped to Mainland China where the courts and the juries would be much stricter. Cardinal zen helped set up a charity fund that would help fund the defense of people against such extradition orders. China just arrested him and everyone else involved in the foundation.

Is Abortion Equal to Murder? John Zmirak Explains

"I'm talking to John samira. What's there to say, John? What's on your mind? Well, thank you, Eric. I collaborated with my friend longtime pro life activist Jason Jones on an important piece at stream dot org. It's called once the law protects unborn kids. Should we seek legal penalties for women who abort them? That question has actually come up. The left is saying that we pro lifers want to send women to prison if they have abortions once we have granted legal protection to unborn children. They're saying we don't just want to lock up the doctors and the nurses and the entrepreneurs of the abortion industry. They're claiming that we want to send women to prison. And pro lifers, some prominent ones, are struggling with how to answer this. If we say abortion is murder, well, if you hire hitman and you get caught, hitman isn't just go to jail, you're going to jail. So if your logic is the abortion is murder, don't you really intend to lock up women who've had abortions once you can get away with it politically. Catholic once posed this. This is in the back of the minds of the suburban women voters who the Democrats think will rescue the Biden administration from the wrecking ball come November. And so we pro lifers have to have a principled answer to it. Typically the answer was always, well, we think the women are the victims. So we would never prosecute the victims. That doesn't quite cut it a 100%. Because first of all, yes, it's true. In many cases, women are coerced to pressure to abandon into having abortions. But not all of them. They're not all innocent hapless 14 year olds carried into abortion clinics by their parents.

I didn't read it because I love your voice and your humor and I thought I had to hear it. And then your most recent book, my men's group is I'm in a men's group and we're studying your most recent book is God dead. Close enough, close enough. Is atheist and dead. And this is what we're called to do. Promote the truth of the dignity of the human person, point people to their creator, inspire solidarity with the vulnerable. There's no more beautiful way to live. And as Christians today, we're surrounded by people who are vulnerable. Our children are addicted to pornography before they're even they even go through puberty just out of curiosity on their phones, that before they've ever held a girl's hand at the roller rink in the 7th grade, they've seen things that sailors wouldn't have seen 20 years ago. And so from our own families and our own communities and then we look at the disaster that our foreign policy is causing around the world. So as members of families and communities and as citizens in this republic, we're given amazing opportunities to stand with the vulnerable. It's astonishing.

We really need your help. We don't do this often. We work with organizations that we have vetted. And we're asking you to do whatever you can if you can give monthly that's better, you can give much less monthly and it really adds up, but $88 feeds a kid for an entire year. That is how good they are with our money. They can stretch it that far. It's just powerful stuff and I'm asking you, please help. But as I sit here with you, Jason Jones, you are also trying to raise money to help kids and folks in the Ukraine right now. I mean, you've been all over the world before you talk to us about how we can help that. How is it that you've ended up being all over the world in these danger zones? I mean, it's just amazing to me. You know, it's an 18 year old soldier. I decided that I wanted to spend the rest of my life living between the vulnerable and the violence, young infantrymen, thought about going into special forces, then I thought, you know, I would like to do what special forces does, but harness influence harness influence political influence for these vulnerable communities. I had this idea as a young soldier and I just left foot right foot left foot right foot now for over 30 years. And that's what I've been doing in Afghanistan. Our goal was we heard there was going to be a million children starved, so my little organization set out to try to reduce that number. And now we've delivered to over 350,000 vulnerable people in Afghanistan four months of food and coal to get them through the winter. Now the same thing is happening in Ukraine and I say that like I was last in my class in high school, I've dyslexia, a dropped out the day I turned 17, joined the army. The people that I'm working to rescue, you discover their doctors, their lawyers, their engineers, their very decent, they're very moral. People are my betters. The vulnerable are not weak people. They're strong people that have been placed in impossible situations. Here I am as an American, I have friends like Eric metaxas, Benjamin Watson, and that I should leverage these opportunities. I told my son, you know, we're at NRB when we're at NRB. The Christians in Afghanistan are here, the hazara are here. The Assyrian Christians are here. We're at NRB the child in the womb is here and we're here to be the voice for the vulnerable. You know, speaking of vulnerable, you've been a big voice for the unborn. I'm holding in my hand a DVD of the film called divided hearts of America. Tell me, what is this a story about divided hearts of America? Benjamin Watson seeks to find a what are the roots of our disunity as a country and first you have to ask, what's unified us? It's that declaration principle is Abraham Lincoln called it that Apple that work of art that constitution is just the frame to protect that we are endowed by God with inalienable rights. So the only country founded on anthropology were the only country founded on a division of the human person, the founding fathers called it self evident. It was self evident to them only because they lived in Christendom. So that Christian vision of the human person is what's united us as a people, not race, not ethnicity, not tradition, religion, so our divisions have been caused by slavery, segregation and abortion, all of our disunity because those slavery segregation and abortion, which all have the threat of race through them, by the way, have denied our founding principle. And so Benjamin Watson sets out on a journey to find out what's divided. Where can people find, this is the film, it's called divided hearts of America. You've produced it with Benjamin Watson and Kirsten Watson. Where can people find divided hearts of America? Wow..

"You know, the question is, how do we how do we change this? How do we get how do we get out of this? I think we need to order our lives and our families and our communities and as citizens of a constitutional republic to serving to serving the vulnerable. I brought this Yazidi woman on your show several years ago who had just been freed from ISIS. When I first met with her and some other representatives from the Yazidi community in Iraq during the genocide, I'd ask them. This was during the Obama administration if they had met with the State Department and they did. And I asked, well, they met with them once. I said, well, what did they say? They said, well, we're not focused on ethnic issues. We're focused on LGBTQ issues. And I was thinking of that because my organization has been rescuing LGBT activists from Afghanistan. And we reached out to their western aid agency and former employers for former employers that we get these form letters from they're no longer work for us for absolved of all responsibilities. They don't care about those people either. And I rescued somebody to work for a population control organization. Of course, our dear friend John samira said, you should have just sent some condoms and morning after pills. Yes, that sounds like something John would say. But what you're saying. But we rescued him. Is that there is an ideology. It's certainly not a biblical ideology. It's really not an American ideology, but it has taken control of much of America. I mean, the Department of Education, a lot of these American pieces of the American government have a worldview that is just radically different from that of your average American voter. We've become a nation governed by people who really don't represent us. I mean, it's a staggering thing to see, but every now and again, you see it clearly as in what has happened to lead us to this place where Russia feels emboldened to jump into the Ukraine. And of course, I wouldn't be surprised if China decided to do something with a weak president like this. They would be foolish not to, because these are bullies and monsters and they don't really care about right or wrong. Yeah, they're poisoned by ideology. You know, I've been studying Alexander dugan. We're hearing a lot about him, but really what is the difference between dugan and Klaus Schwab? I mean, it's a nihilism. They're nihilists. And they look to power and they deny what we understand, which is there's a transcendent moral order. And when we look out and we look at human beings, we see God in the mirror. We see this beauty and its dignity that is only explained through our revealed faith. And they don't have that. And when I was in Sudan during the genocide there, I had I met with Al-Qaeda, Sudan, the janjaweed, I remember just pitying them. I thought I was going to hate them. I was going to be angry. We met for tea. In the middle of nowhere. And as I looked at them, I just pity them. When you meet with a Taliban, you know that they have been indoctrinated from a very young age that they were victims of a brutal war, the Soviet war of aggression, they grew up in these camps. And they never had a chance. They've been slaves in their mind. They've been enslaved by this ideology. And you know, you looked at the Davos, the party of Davos, and their.

Folks I'm talking to my friend, Jason Jones, who has, among other things, written for the stream, go to stream dot org and you can read his piece, his piece is there, there's a recent piece he wrote on Ukraine.

I was going to say, this is what's so horrifying is that when I think of the America of Ronald Reagan, it means to be a shining city on a hill. That cares about people all around the world. When I think of the America of whatever you want to call it, the deep state, the actors at Davos, these are people they don't have the same vision as Reagan did even as Trump did as when I think of the founders. They have a kind of anti American globalist vision and while we've been sleeping, they have taken over much of our government, many federal bureaucrats are coming from that point of view. We have many judges coming from that point of view. And we're now dealing with that. And in other words, we are represented on the world stage by people that certainly don't share our values. And,.

"Com. Folks welcome to the program. This is crazy. I'm at the NRB in Nashville. People wander by some of them I like very much. One of those that I like very much is Jason Jones who's sitting next to me right now. Jason Jones welcome. I admire you greatly and it's so exciting to hear you like me very much. I was getting nervous. Thank you. You know I was getting nervous. I was about to I like you so much that I almost said, I hate your guts. And that's my ultimate love language when I insult people publicly. But you I met you, I guess sort of through John's mirek, didn't I? The great John. And that's one of the reasons I love you, 'cause you love John. And but I realized you're one of those people, I'm not sure how to introduce you to my audience. You've written many pieces for the stream, just like John, streamed out org stream dot org stream dot org, you had a piece out this past week about kind of giving us context on the Ukraine. So I want to talk to you about that. Sure. But before that, how do you describe yourself and don't be falsely humbled because we don't have time for that? Well, I run a human rights organization, our mission is to defend the vulnerable from violence and through that I make movies. Here's my latest movie divided hearts of America on Fox nation with the great Benjamin Watson. And so people will describe me as a filmmaker. I write with John smyrk and write at the stream, but really my obsession is to stand between the vulnerable and the violence. I'm addled by the thought of children from the child in the womb to children in east turkestan suffering violence. So right now my organization since August, we've evacuated thousands of vulnerable Christians and hazara and other minorities from Afghanistan, who distributed food, four months of food and coal to over 300,000. Minorities in Afghanistan and for the past two weeks, we've been also we've added Ukraine. So we've rescued 5000 Ukrainians, and we have caravan. We've now owned about 50 vehicles that are traveling 24 hours a day with volunteers switching off, taking time to sleep. So if people want to look you up, where do they find you? Our organization for the vulnerable people project is the great campaign dot org and you can see all the work we're doing from east turkestan in Afghanistan and sadly now in Ukraine. The great campaign dot org dot org. Now the piece that you wrote for stream dot org. It was very helpful. I posted it on social media because I thought to myself, you're giving us a perspective on how we got here. So tell my audience who didn't get to read that because this is people need to understand what's been going on for the last 25 years in this country. How do we get to a place like this? We're Russia decides, hey, I'm going to invade Ukraine. How did this happen? Yeah, it's really quite sorrowful. You know, when you and I grew up and I grew up studying the speeches of Ronald Reagan and reading Barry Goldwater, I was at strange kid. And you know, president Reagan would say over and over and over again, we're going to save the Russians from totalitarian socialism. Our goal is to defeat the USSR and free the people of Russia, free the people of Eastern Europe. But sadly, after the collapse of the Soviet Union, it's as if we never stopped a war on the Russian people. Isn't this a little bit like when the Civil War was over and rake in and Reagan? And Lincoln is killed. He was not able to do many things. And so in a funny way, a lot of that racial division continued by other means. It seems to me that, okay, we win the Cold War, how terrific now we can invite the Russian people into the community of nations. We can help them to practice self government. And deep state actors, people who did not have that vision, people who did not think like Ronald Reagan, people who thought like George Bush, the 41st president and his coterie, they had a different view, and so this tremendous promise and opportunity was essentially squandered, which is what leads us to where we are now. What squadron. And I want to be clear, this is Putin's war. It's an illegal unjust war of aggression, but we can not deny that NATO set the table. NATO laid the tripwire and Putin tripped it. And when I wrote this article for the stream, you know, I'm working with Ukrainians. I have teams of over a hundred Ukrainians working for me and I sent them the article, and I was really worried about the responses that I was going to get back. And everyone agreed with what I had to say. And it was a hard thing for me to write, and I wondered if it was prudent to write it as I was in the middle of this operation. You know, we've been rescuing, we've been emptying out hospitals. We rescued a school for the blind and orphanages, and I thought, do I need to say this right now? And I thought, you know, the truth needs to be said. Russian boys are dying, Ukrainians are suffering, and the people of Ukraine are suffering because NATO and Russia, Putin, they see Ukraine as a means to their security. They don't see Ukraine as an end in itself. The people of Ukraine are an end in themselves so that yes, so the point is that NATO used Ukraine very, very cynically, and it led to this. So we know that Putin is the villain, but NATO did not act well toward the Ukraine. They effectively, as you said, they kind of set them up for this nightmare. Yeah, we poked Russia. And when it was like we kicked a rabid dog and hopped a fence and left them alone to deal with the dog. And it is quite sorrowful. I mean, there are all sorts of horrible reports that we're getting directly from our volunteers. War is catastrophic. You have this Alexander dugan that has influenced Putin greatly that says that God's last words will be in Russian as the Russian people bring about World War three and the annihilation of mankind. So we have a very scary situation. And where are the statesmen and states women who are working to alleviate human suffering. That's really what a statesman is. A statesman is one that looks to ameliorate human pain, but instead what I'm hearing from really all corners is rhetoric that is thoughtless to the consequences of children, a family. I took my son to the grand Ole opry last night, and I hope he didn't see like, I'm thinking about my staff in Afghanistan and the hell and the war and the rhetoric from dugan and others in Russia and heidegger about the thrill of war. Actually,.

"We could make it worth. That's a completely different question. I think of a house, right? Nobody's lived there in two years. It's like, well, you know, if you mow the lawn, you can get a lot more money for it. Think about your agent. Think about your agent, that's a great example. If you brought an agent to your house and you said, what could I get for it right now? Yeah. You don't have an agent that says, I will take care of fixing your house for you. Yeah. And then we'll sell it and I will make a little with you as we said. No one does that. The agents just, and it's nothing wrong. It's just their model isn't to say, hey, yeah. All partner with you and grow it and help you exit for more. They just say, well, you should do this. You should do that. You should do that. And if you're lucky, they'll refer you to somebody. If you're lucky, they'll have a list of like, well, you could maybe call this person or you could call that person. But what we do is we actually can partner with those companies. So we do cells where we actually don't do the renovation. That's not required in our transactions. But a lot of times, they're not quite ready to go. And their financials need to be cleaned up, they need to have operational systems put in place. Even just putting in ERP systems and CRMs, systems for running enterprise management and customer tracking, we deploy that, all of a sudden, the buyer knows, oh, they've got systems. They've got data. They've got analytics on this. They know who they are. They know what they're doing. Otherwise, they look at it and go, well, they don't have a this. They don't have that. They don't have a this. Oh, will they do a discount? Right. So it's not just owner dependence. They look at all the work they're going to have to do to try to flip it or how to do it themselves to get the right value out of it. Did you find yourself just because of your interest, getting becoming an expert on this? I mean, because you've done a number of business, but I'm just fascinated how you kind of look at this globally. You're not just looking at your businesses. Answering your skills to others when I started I did startups back by 8 years ago. What I was annoyed with myself is that I was in the middle of a software startup and I didn't understand how the startup world worked. So I was behind the 8 ball. So all these things I was learning about the funding, this growth, and what people are looking for. I remember we were trying to raise one and a half $1 million. Nobody wants to give you one and a half $1 million if you're a startup. They either want to give you a 100,000 to 200,000 or they want to give you 10 million. Because the people that are going to give you millions, the amount of effort they have to put into, it's not worth their time. So we thought we were like, well, let's just not ask for too much. We should have asked for more because that way we got the I needed to know that ahead of time. So I got burned by that. And I committed to in business, developing what I would call what I call internally, the reach muscle, where we're always venturing into something a little bit unfamiliar, but not getting totally over our skis. So once we had a variety of companies and we sold out of them this last year, which we've talked about, and we've left, and we love what we've done, but we were looking to do something new. I wanted to do this kind of stuff. This is it. So I got really focused on what's the landscape. Who's buying companies who's selling companies and how does this world work? And so that's, I think, where we provide a little bit of unique value is that these small business owners and I've been there. This is why I want to help. Is those lessons of why didn't someone tell me this? And a lot of times it's because when you're successful, no one wants to share. And I get why. But they don't want to share what made them successful. And when you fail, very few jump online and write up a post mortem. Right. So what I found is that just in kind of the way I'm wired, I wanted to share with people what I learned so that they don't have to go through. That just was a way of people can come to the Talbot group to learn from your failures. This is absolutely. It's kind of funny, but it's true, right? Absolutely. This is absolutely in our sweet spot. This is because it's what we love to do. And we've done it. A few times. And you've had enough success. You've had so much success that it's embarrassing to me. And I don't even hear in this silly. But you guys have been so successful, but you look, you have the relief factor is an insane level of success. I saw that, okay, I want to tell people if you're interested, you want to go to 8 6 6 Talbot, TLB OTT, or go to Talbot group dot com. That's on.

I love when people ask questions that are non sequiturs. I do not have any custom shirts. So I don't even know, I don't know what that means. I don't think I've ever had a shirt custom made. And I don't know, so I don't know how to answer that question. I don't know why somebody would think that my shirts are our customers. That looks like a Charles tyrant, by the way. Well, it might. But actually, you know, it's a great place to get shirts, kamakura. Kamakura dot com. Roger Stone, the Beau brummel of the conservative set, tipped me off. Kamakura dot com. They have great shirts. This is a kamakura. By the way. You and I are both wearing polka dot ties today. And that's the most important thing that we get every day at any time.

Don't forget to follow me on Instagram and all those other places. Thank you. Feelings lifting lift that baby right up off the ground. Oh hey folks, I've got to tell you a secret about relief factor that the father's son owners Pete and Seth Talbot have never made a big deal about, but I think it is a big deal. I really do. They sell the three week quick start pack for just 1995 to anyone struggling from pain like neck shoulder back hip or knee pain, 1995, about a dollar a day, but what they haven't broadcasted much is that every time they sell a three week quick start, they lose money. In fact, they don't even break even until about four to 5 months after if you keep ordering it. Friends, that's huge. People don't keep ordering relief factor month after month. If it doesn't work. So yes, Pete and Seth are literally on a mission to help as many people as possible deal with their pain. They really do put their money where their mouths are. So if you're in pain from exercise or even just getting older or to the three week quick start for 1995, let's see if we can get.

What Advice Would Eric Give His 28-Year-Old Self?

"What advice would you give your 28 year old self? Get a haircut. Yeah. What advice would I give my 28 year old self? That's a good question. Yeah. I struggled a lot with health issues in my 30s and 40s. And it was very hard. And I think I always would want to give myself the advice that the scripture gives us, you need to know that God is real and he's with you. And when the scripture says be anxious for nothing, but in all things, by prayer and supplication with Thanksgiving make your quest not to go. God is trying to do us is trying to bless us. And he's trying to say, listen, I know the big picture you don't. So I see the future I see things, and I'm telling you, trust me, do not be anxious. Do not fret. No that I am with you. No that I have a plan for you. I could go on and on and on. But that really, I can't stress enough that taking the Bible seriously and taking the promises of God seriously, God won't force you to do that. But if you don't do that, you will suffer a lot more than he wants you to.

"Go, okay, this one's off. Two parter, where do you go to church in New York and where should I go to church in New York? I'm assuming this person lives in New York. It seems that way. So are they saying that they don't go to church? There's a lot of churches. Well, I find myself in a strange situation almost every weekend now. I am traveling and speaking this weekend I'll be in Tempe, Arizona, I seem to be in a different church around the country every weekend almost. So my church attendance in New York City has fallen off dramatically when I am around I go to visit my folks up in Connecticut and so I'll either go to church with them or go to church up there. So the New York stuff, I mean, there are a number of good churches. So let me simply say that if I were you, I would visit, it kind of depends on what you're looking for. Central Presbyterian, which is on 64th and park, fantastic church kind of traditional Presbyterian evangelical, wonderful worship, really a delightful church. We went there for many years before the COVID. But central players paying just a terrific church. There's a church downtown worth the trip. King's church, our friend David englehart, is the pastor there. I have actually been there a couple of times in the last month or so, but king's church, downtown, is fantastic. And then my goodness, there's so many other Times Square church where I met my bride as we say, and where I've had the privilege of speaking many times, Times Square church, how do you come to New York and not visit Times Square church? I don't know. So I'm going to leave it there. Question number two, any tips for how to get my boyfriend to stop reading The New York Times. He's a bright guy. I don't have enough information to ask that question because the reason I stopped reading The New York Times was that it had become insufferable propaganda. It was always before becoming insufferable propaganda. It was propaganda, but it wasn't quite insufferable. And I felt an obligation to see how the folks at The New York Times were thinking and covering things. Before it became propaganda, it was left leaning journalism, but it was still journalism. I think in this day and age, you need to know that a lot of the institutions of journalism that we once took for granted as basically doing their job. Are no longer doing their job. And when I say that, it's kind of like saying, you know that doctor you used to trust, he's trying to kill you. You might want to think twice about visiting that doctor. I talk to people, all kinds of people, various ages, and I am myself not less than astonished at how ignorant, good people are of what is going on in the news because their sources are The New York Times or CNN or Yahoo news. They think they're getting the news and I'm here to tell you the news no longer covers the most important stories of our time. The Durham investigation and the it looks like. Criminal treasonous behavior of the Clinton campaign, there is no bigger story than that. And the mainstream media isn't even covering it, folks. You don't need to agree with me politically. But if you're not aware of this story, you're not living in reality. So at this point, I don't know what to say to your boyfriend. I'll leave it at that..

Should Lindsey Graham Be Censured for Putin Assassination Comments?

"Right now, we're talking to John's Merrick John's mirror. I want to remind people, you write pieces that stream dot org and there's a piece by Jason Jones at stream dot org, which I put out on social media, helping us understand the context of where we are right now. But let's go back to your article. You say that Lindsey Graham called for the assassination of Putin in a way, I guess for United States senator to do that. It is tantamount to what happened that kicked off World War I before there were nuclear weapons. Yeah. 1914. And that this is at least extraordinarily irresponsible, and he should be censured. Senator Graham, because we're talking about millions of people could die because of him being so foolish in his position as a senator. That's right. And I think the U.S. and I should act as censure Lindsey Graham. So that, well, first of all, because he deserves it. I mean, he's tweeting like a 17 year old Iranian terrorist in some safe house in the suburbs of Paris. He'd be insanely reckless, irresponsible, criminally foolish and criminally reckless. It's wrong. He's encouraging someone's murder. He's encouraging a revolution in a foreign country where there's no way to know how it would turn out. It could turn out far worse. You could have communists come back. Actual communists come back. He doesn't care. Lindsey Graham doesn't care what happens in Russia. He doesn't care what happens in Ukraine. He never cared what happens in Syria. These neocons don't care about the people of foreign countries. They don't care if they all die or are all in slave by Islamic

Well, I have a piece I did with our good friend Jason Jones and the title is the Ivy League doesn't just train tyrants for our oligarchy. Harvard is churning out commandants for Uighur concentration camp. Okay, not a joke. This is serious. Jason Jones is a hero, what do you say in the article about what I believe is doing? Well, the Financial Times reported and the daily caller reprinted. Two officials who oversee detention camps accused committing genocide against Uyghur Muslims in Zhang China previously received fellowships from Harvard University, the Financial Times reported. They studied at the Harvard University's center for democratic governance and innovation while pursuing a doctorate. We were asked center. Yes. ASH center for democratic governance and innovation. Doesn't that sound like a nice, happy, clappy thing, democratic governance and Internet innovation? Well, when you hear happy phrases like that, on the lips of Harvard people, what they really mean is genocide camps in China for Christians and Muslims who won't tow the government

North and south bound on high five. No real trouble As you travel through the Seattle area, you are going to find still that little bit of slowing picking up right past Madison Street on and off of today, anyway. Otherwise, though, looking pretty clear, North bound high five coming out of Tacoma and no delays at all as you head up on your way to Seattle if you're headed south bound from ever Either Seattle or Bellevue on the five or four or five. It's not gonna make really any difference. Plenty of elbow room, you could just travel it regular speeds and comfort all the way down to your destination, looking around at the other side streets, not really seeing any accidents or incidents there, either. It's a pretty decent looking commute.

Remember him from the NC Double a tournament with Virginia hits the three he finishes. 20 on six of 10 from three was very good. So let's get into that. What Jason Jones observed at Mr Underscore Jason Jones, the athletic They joins us, courtesy of the guests on Jason, How are you? I'm doing good. How's everybody doing? They were hanging in there. You may have one of the I like your Twitter feed because wrestling is one picture and you and Jack is another. Those are both winners. In my book. I try to be a little try to have a little fun with it. I like it. Give us give us your observations. Obviously, the last time I remember seeing Kyle guy who was winning the national championship with Virginia, But at times last night he couldn't miss and he hits that final three for the winter. Well, he's a guy that they really go the two way player. They're pretty much all last, even in the league, and the main thing with Kyle was that they drafted him. He's a He's a kind of the point guard. But you really have been a shooting guard in college for most of his career, so the matter of him getting first, getting bigger and stronger because he was so small and him work on his point guards killed So they knew it could score and even when they called him up in time, the last season the whole idea what if we put Carl in the game? We wanted to shoot the ball, so that part's not surprising. He just looked so he looks like he's more physically ready to compete now. Chase. It's good to hear your voice. Good to catch up with you. And I want to ask you about Obviously, Kyle was the story later in the game, but Buddy healed came in stroking the ball, buddy buckets, buddy Love and he went in the starting lineup, and Luke was you wanted them to check Andrew Wiggins. So tell me where his game is at. And how do you see this working? Tyree Sala Burton obviously is an exciting young player that kind of fell into their laps to 12. But how do you see it? Working with Halliburton? Dearing Fox, buddy. You got HPD could slide up in play four. Can all five place simultaneously. What? What's the best fivesome Lucas, do you think Jason Depends on who is going to use its center. But I know what he likes. He would like to do with the use Harrison at the four and ideally Marvin Bagley as a five and then put the three guards with them because if he thinks back That would be a lineup that could give them no offense. You're big enough just to which you know on the perimeter, and he really liked the idea of the three guard lineup, and they use that bit last year. With a set of it being Halliburton. It would have been Bogdanovich. But they really like the idea of having multiple know another ball handler with the air and because the air in life's plan off the ball, then we get the ball is in this attack. So I had some point. That's the lineup. Luke would love to get to. He really couldn't get to it last year because they didn't really have Marvin it all last season. So You never really saw it, but that's the line if he wants to get to where they can go small and your small ball center is actually a 6. Ft. 10 forward exactly. You mentioned you mentioned Bagley. And every time he's mentioned, everybody talks about Luca and Trey Young, but I love them it Duke. So a lot of people complaining, But he was great. At Duke. He gets number two after 89 points, four boards. He's had injury issues only 75 games in a couple years, he came down with covert. So where is he at? And what is the expectation level with Marvin Bagley? Right now. He's like, feels good, and he felt everything. He's spent the whole offseason trying to get strong and get his body right and e mean No. One Marvin. As long as I've known him now, he just really been frustrated because the injuries he had last season. We're just the first one was a like a fluke. You got hit on the hand in the game and broken stuff. Miss 20 plus game. There's any spring 1 ft. Ad for the summer. He sprained the other foot Mr rest of the bubble, so he's feeling good. He wants to show that he can shoot the three. He wants to try to expand his game a lot. But their main thing right now with Marvin if they get him on the court, because a lot of the things they want to do or depended upon Marvin being healthy offensively defensively, they feel like he's a guy. He's healthy. You've got it. You've now got a big photo ball into and get points, so I just really want to see him stay on the court, and he had on a minute restriction last night. He didn't like the minute restriction. He wanted to go back in the game, but they're gonna be really cautious with him. But they're still excited about him in his talent. No, even with Luca traced up, you know. Out there. They're excited about Marvin. Yeah, You wrote this morning. I would try to sneak back into the game. Little sneaky, but and he is kind of a sneaky player. The way he gets that left hand jump hook off so quickly, and he's really good around the around the basket, and there's no question he's a five and Harrison obviously, when he made the transition of the You know, death line up before When Luke was here, That's where you want him to be. But you've also got a son White side. One of my favorite, says Son shop, and he had four blocks last night. And so could you play. Bagley could look play Bagley at four. And Whiteside at five and get the two bigs on the floor simultaneously. Is that just too big? I think they're going to do that. They think Marvin's athletic enoughto where you can play him on the perimeter against, you know, stretch for so what they want to do defensively, perhaps in situations where you can have Have a song back there on that back line, and they could be a little more aggressive on the perimeter. No one that they've got a guy who have is three blocks last year, this waiting and they felt last night. Some of the guys some of the wars was driving into him and Hassan is just so big and he can move. So you know, it's just like, OK, What do we do once we get in the paint against this guy? They definitely want to play Marvin. It's um before he started before last night. No, but the goal is to be able to use both of them together At some point that this both of you know Hassan was hurt as well for the first part of camp, so they really haven't had a chance to get them together. Last night was the first time either one of them..

She was in an episode of the detour starring jason jones she was also also in season eight episode five of snapped killer coppell's which is one of minnie's favorite shows depend and also yell at so welcome amanda hi thanks for having me you are so welcome and thanks for coming on our show just a little bit of background. You and i used to work together in chicago. You were acting in chicago for a while and now you're in north carolina. Can you tell us why you moved to north carolina and how is the acting scene in north carolina compared to chicago. <hes> it's kind of a total fluke my husband who has my boyfriend at the time. He got a job teaching at u._n._c. W university university of north carolina wilmington and so we thought okay. Let's try this out and i had no idea that the film scene in wilmington is so huge sh <hes> they call it the hollywood of the south and now it's since moved a little bit more to atlanta but i can say there's way more jobs here in north carolina jonathan in chicago <hes> chicago's great but it had a ceiling for me which was also why it wasn't so hesitant to move i think when you knew me i started doing stand up and improv shows at the time and was just doing whatever the colleges were putting on but probably like the year before i had moved. I was on t._v. Twice a week i was auditioning all the time i had a modeling agent and i was still on food stamps so i was like this is not cutting it at all <hes> because because the sad secret about big cities is that they just don't pay some probably gonna get a lot of trouble for saying oh well. It's one of my big eggplants like as an actor though is like i always get extremely honest with people about that stuff. I have no issues with that because i'm kind of like broke his bro. Click what else you want and also in big cities you you have more competition for roles insanity yeah. When we went to see lala land my mother-in-law took me and it's such a diversion from this. I swear so bad but it's such a horror movie. It kind of was i hated it but there's like a part of it where she goes to an audition and there are all these women that looked just like occur and they're all going in to say the same thing that is chicago. We had an audition to be the wendy's girl and it was every crazy quirky redhead in the city and we were all in one room room and i thought i thought that would be a good horror movie.

"Summer of two thousand fifteen he's only making seven million this year. So he can get up to that ten point six. I don't know how he's feeling about unrestricted free agency he'll be the he'll be age twenty eight this off season. So this is really probably his last chance for significant contract and signed what? Ended up becoming a value contract in two thousand fifteen just because that was the year before everything went crazy. Well, would you? What would you offer them? If you're Portland, would you give them the full of the four forty seven. Would you make that offered him? So I don't think I would do for years. But I would do something similar. Well, I would do three years maybe something like Dinwoodie, but I would not give him a player option on that last year. Maybe some sort of maybe I would do the fourth year. But it would have some guarantee protection, you know, whether it's injury or just maybe it's like a third guaranteed or something like that. You know, he's another one of these guys young what's going to happen to these role players. We saw last off season obviously is role players were getting one year deals. Nobody was getting even fifteen million a lot of them. I mean, even JJ Redick was one year twelve point five billion last year summer twenty sixteen obviously, you know, someone like me new his slow performance probably would have gotten seventeen million. Look, whatever Turner got it. I mean, he's been better than Turner to me is over been of. So where's the sweet spot going to be for these guys who have been established starters late twenties? Maybe not just blowing your socks off or even into the early thirties would. Ten million a year for a larger number years? Be good enough for them. Are they're going to be shorter term like three year deals, but it's going to be sixteen million a year. What is the trend? It'd be very curious to see that. I don't think anyone really knows the answer to that. And then you throw in to just how many agents there are who are the guys who are going to really get a lot of love or just the guys at the top of the market not gonna get four year deals for fifteen million a year because there's so many other regions where you feel like well rather than give out this premium contract for a guy. Why don't we see if we can replace them for someone making seven million a year for two or three years? Instead, they're non union equivalent. We'll we'll probably see some of those this year. And also, my my kind of quick thought is that we could see sim disparity within this group like guys that strike early. Getting a lot more than the guys who who miss out on the first round of money like that could be a really big disparity. And then those teams are going to be the teams that went earlier, it'd be kicking themselves up like, oh, man. We could have gotten player x for five million cheaper per years. Like that Jake Lehman. I think it's kind of a similar story to some of the other guys we talked about restricted free agent super low capital. We don't know exactly what Portland is willing to pay with him. We don't know what his market is. So I would be shocked if we saw an extension was especially with them in the tax me certainly would have to establish himself as a rotation player between now and the end of the season take a look at Sacramento, Sacramento. Now, interestingly is the only team that still has cap space about eleven million. It seems the direction that they are going Jason Jones reported over the weekend that they'd had some discussions about auto Puerto we'd previously floated the idea of them maybe taking on porter sending back a low enough salary for the wiz together of the tax, but are playing okay. And right now, I don't know that there's that much noise now that they're going to want it just dump porter. We'll see though really the only interesting extension candidate. As of now is Iman Shumpert the kings. Couldn't theory use that money to renegotiate extend someone upward as well. It gives them more money. For this year. But they don't really have anyone who falls into that category. I really the only eligible guide for them is a Shumpert..
