"And I'll close with this and I thought it would be a really fun way to kick off the year with our host, Luke Barnett, and I just to kind of explore his amazing so many bit over this last weekend and talk about this further. And also the kind of the blessing of fasting, which I think would be particularly fun as Lucas fasting right now. So you're not supposed to tease people as they fast, so I'm not going to I promise. I know a lot of you are fasting as well. But if I'm going to have a direct ask that I think we should fast monthly every year, every month this year, as we head into this very important year, for our country, we're going to talk about that in a second. But I'm going to close with this, which is that the founders believed, and this was explicitly written in Alexander Hamilton, John Jay's, James Madison's private journals, that only God should be able to have the executive legislative and judicial authority. This is why they intentionally separated everybody. They separated it because they believed that no person on this planet should have that much authority. But they realized that the true immediate authority needs to be invested in all of you. This is one of the great dangers of these independent regulatory agencies of people that are largely untouchable that run these bureaucracies in D.C. of which you've never met them, they're unelected, unknown and have almost unaccountable power. But the trajectory of 2020, that were on, if we keep it up, if you keep on praying, fasting, showing up to events, showing up to school board meetings, running for office, if you feel so compelled, consuming news and information, knowing it's happening around you, even though it might be slightly depressing at times, is that you're about to live through the greatest, most unexpected citizen movement in a generation. Let me say that again. You're about to live through one of the greatest cities that all of a sudden they're going to look back and they're going to say when it seemed the bleak and it seems so negative and so dark and it was led by the church. I really believe that's where it all comes down to. And I remember the first thing that we said at this at this gathering was that it's always been the church that has been the one like a trust fall that has caught America and brought it back into posture, right? At every single awakening. And you're seeing that. You're seeing that in a very special way. But here's the takeaway, though, is that in no way whatsoever is it time to disengage because you think you got everything all figured out. Here's the time for us to put the proverbial foot on the accelerator for liberty and for righteousness because we are in a much better stronger position a year from a year ago. I don't know about you guys. A year ago on the calendar year, it was pretty dark for me personally. I was not really sure. I thought people were going to give up. And we tried to do everything we could to try to keep the stamina going and keep the velocity moving. And you're all playing such a phenomenal part and big role in that. So just remember that you're living through what it truly means that it says in the Bible to be a citizen. That is so rare. If you look right now in Austria, Spain, Greece, and Italy, they do not have citizens. If you leave your house in Austria without a vaccine card, you're in violation of the law. That's not a citizen. That's something else. You could fill it in. That's a subject that's whatever it is. And so reclaim your rightful role as someone who, as God wants you to be a citizen of this great nation, it's going to take action. It's going to take prudence and it's going to take faith and that's the role that church needs to continue to play. No better segue than to invite great way to kick off this calendar year,.

"In fact, in America, one of the most important days of the year for getting together with friends and family. Also used to be the most mischievous. It originated in New York City around 1863, a new national holiday had just been established by president Abraham Lincoln and it gave children all over the country some much needed time off from school. In New York, where impoverished immigrant children were often left to their own devices. That meant time to goof around. You see, these kids would wear costumes, often dressing up like hobos and tattered clothes, fake mustaches, and even wigs. Then they would go around the city knocking on doors asking neighbors for treats. And they weren't just after candy, either. Any food item was acceptable, apple's vegetables, cake. And in some cases, small toys were happily taken as trophies for their efforts. As the years went on, their costumes became more elaborate, masks bought from local stores were introduced as were new themes for their costumes. Some kids dressed up as business workers, while others were made to look like animals. They also didn't shy away from raiding their mother's closets for inspiration. Old dresses and shoes became prime costume materials for both boys and girls looking to go all out on the most fun day of the year. For the most part the children who participated did so without incidents, but there were many who went beyond simply asking for goodies. They would throw handfuls of flour or confetti at people on the streets, or sit on the fenders of cars driving by to catch a quick ride up the block. The more dangerous children weren't above damaging property, either, especially if they had been denied food or money while at someone's door. And it wasn't uncommon to see a bonfire in the middle of the street. Kids laughing and tossing wooden scraps into its roaring flames. This tradition carried on through the 1800s and well into the early part of the 20th century as a holiday called ragamuffin day. Eventually, so many ragamuffin day revelers were participating that their march through the streets became known as the ragamuffin parade. Adults would come out of their homes to stand on the sidelines and watch the kids walk by. Admiring their funny and often unique costumes. Of course, not everyone loved ragamuffin day. In the 1930s, for example, The New York Times started running hit pieces on the yearly pastime. As The Great Depression raged on, it seemed in poor taste for children to mock the homeless and the less fortunate by dressing up and begging for food from people who didn't have any to share. And the smear campaign worked by the mid 1950s, ragamuffin day had run its course. But not to worry, it wasn't a race for good. We just celebrated it differently now as Thanksgiving. That's right, ragamuffin day started as a result of the Thanksgiving holiday. Outside of New York, it was known as Thanksgiving masking, and the parade with its silly costumes and crowds of people, well, that was overtaken by the department store Macy's, as their annual Thanksgiving Day parade. But ragamuffin day wasn't gone forever. In the 1940s, the concept of wearing a costume and asking neighbors for treats was rolled into a different celebration held one month earlier. Halloween the Greek philosopher heraclitus often is quoted as saying change is the only constant in life. And he's right. Holidays change all the time. But dressing up and begging for candy from strangers, well, I hope that never goes out of style. We call them the founding fathers because without them, America wouldn't be quite America. In the 1700s they united the 13 colonies in a revolt against Britain's oppressive king George during the Revolutionary War. We're familiar with one of the most famous, a general who lost more battles than he won, but was successful in leading his men across the Potomac. That man was George Washington, the first president of the United States. There were others, of course. Depending on which list you read, there are 7, maybe 8 who make the list. Over 56, if you add every signature on the Declaration of Independence. Though there's an odd fact, Washington, John Jay, James Madison, and Alexander Hamilton did not sign the Declaration of Independence in 1776. Of course, an additional three other documents helped create the United States. The treaty of alliance in 1778, the treaty of peace between England, France and the U.S. in 1782 and the constitution in 1787. Regardless of many founding fathers you choose to consider, they work together to create a new government. I suppose you'd say that there was a lot of firsts that came from that list. One sat on a committee of 5 that helped draft the Declaration of Independence. Only one member signed all four documents that helped form the nation. Many were highly educated coming from Harvard, Yale and Oxford, but only one held honorary degrees from all three schools, despite having only two years of formal education. There were the inventors in the bunch too. Mozart once wrote music for a glass harmonica, one of the men created after noticing performers using glasses to create a musical sound. A particularly talented founding father also played the violin, the harp and the guitar. There were writers as well as artists at just 16, one founding father wrote a popular newspaper column under a pseudonym as a widowed woman. The columns became so popular that he received several marriage proposals from Boston's most eligible bachelors before confessing his identity. Then there's the avid swimmer, who once swam London's Thames, believing that all children should learn to swim, he later started a swimming school. And because of this, he was posthumously inducted into the international swimming Hall of Fame. The very first United States postmaster was also a founding father, as was the ambassador to France, dubbed America's renaissance man. There was the fashion trendsetter whose fur hats spawned a fashion trend overseas. America's first celebrity also signed the Declaration of Independence. Whenever he visited Europe he had no shortage of female admirers who followed him everywhere. That one public appearance, his fans placed a crown of laurels on his head and kissed each cheek. In France, the French National Assembly declared a day of mourning when one founding father passed away. Today there's a statue of him in Yorktown square. Count mirabeau said that he was able to restrain thunderbolts and tyrants. There were abolitionists, too. One kept fighting against slavery until his death, even including a provision in his will that his son and daughter wouldn't receive a penny of their inheritance if they ever kept slaves. And speaking of wills, consider the gift left by one founding father to Boston and Philadelphia. He left the city's £2000, with an unusual request. The money had to stay in a trust fund for 100 years and used only to provide loans to local tradesmen. That money became worth millions by 1990. That's a lot of amazing history, but the most amazing part, it was all the work of just one founding father. Not many. A man everyone's heard of. But knows so little about. Benjamin Franklin.

"The voice which generation that still has the will to believe in the greatest country in the history of the world. This is the Charlie Kirk Show Buckle up. Here we go. Hey, everybody. Charlie Kirk here radio stations across the country Honored to be with you today today. Is a day that every single child in school should take pause. And be led through and told the Great American Story of how we got here. Today is a beautiful day. There's a lot wrong with our country right now, and I want to take a pause to Remember what happened on this day and 17 87. September 17th 17 87. Was one of the most significant days. In human history. It was definitely one of the most significant days in political history. Almost never before. Had this idea of self government been tried. The Romans tried it in Some capacity and failed and eventually became an empire. The Greeks tried it and city states but never before did a people. Attempt to Embark on a form of government where the people were the sovereign. An idea of self government, independent judiciary. The ideas of freedom and equality and the rule of law. That are the ultimate principles to build that society. In today's time. It's easy to Feel disconnected to the brilliance of the clairvoyance or the wisdom. Of our founding fathers or the framers. September. 17th 17 87 was the last day of a heated constitutional convention that lasted almost The entire summer. It went from May 25th to September 17th 17 87. It was held in private and secret. George Washington presided over the chair as the chair of the constitutional convention. Now we have some notes from the constitutional convention, but most of the back and forth the debate in the commentary. We will never know exactly what was said. Alexander Hamilton, John Jay James Madison. They were going at it. You see the articles and confederation at articles of Confederation. Which were written After the successful revolution or separation from the British We're posing problems. There are Shay's rebellion. There was inability to commerce between states to mint currency, It became more and more clear that some form of a federal government was necessary. The question is, what kind of government do we want to form? Now a sloppy way, too. Talk about the American stories to say we had two founding is 1 17 76 and one in 17 87. That is not true. There is an divine connection between the truths of the Declaration of Independence. And the laws of the Constitution of the United States. In the Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson. It starts with when, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth. The separate and equal station. To which the laws of nature and nature's God entitle them. A decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to separation. Laws of nature and nature's God. The founding fathers and framers built a civilization on eternal truths. This is one of the most significant developments in the history of our species and the history of human beings. Now the founders before The American Revolution before the French Indian war. What did the pilgrims bring with them to the shores of America? They brought a civilization with them the beginnings of Western society. They brought faith knowledge of the classic Socrates, Plato and Aristotle, Qantas Augustine. The whole meaning of a civilization. They brought almost everything except the aristocracy. They started new. They started something from nothing. Thomas Jefferson continued by saying, We hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal. Human equality is an idea that civilizations today still reject. This idea that the type of being that you are a human being The speaking being. You are being rooted in reason that you desire To be as you are. You have a yearned to know. The founders knew this ancient wisdom. And they also knew the Developments of the Enlightenment. They said. How can we build a system build a compact build a contract? That will balance all of these things together. And allow for self government allow for the pursuit of virtue, which is liberty, put licentiousness and check. Have a system where tyranny and the potential for tyranny. Is put aside so that people are able to able to live quiet and peaceable lives. In the United States Constitution. It begins with we, the people. That's you. It's not we, the Tony Fauci It's not we the lowest learner, not we, The Mark Milley. We, the people of the United States now of the United States is very important. It shows that it's not We, the people of Nicaragua. We the people of the world. Now it's we, the people of the boundaries and the borders and the tradition of the United States of America. In order to form a more perfect union. Establish justice. That's pretty important. You see America's divided right now divided into two different ways to view justice. We as conservatives and constitutionalists, we view justice and the traditional sense. A man gets what he is owed. You have your own agency, your own ability or inability, your capacity to make choices and you'll be held accountable to that. The founding fathers rejected and since ancestral justice, blood guilt, justice They rejected tribal justice. They said. Who are you as a human being? What do you have? What have you done? What are you going to do? Today we are now told about social justice, racial justice, environmental justice, redistributive justice, The founders and the framers. Would reject that completely, They said. That diminishes the soul of a human being. A de emphasizes the agency. The choice the ability for that human being. To be all that God wants that person to be. Ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare and secure the blessings of liberty. It's a beautiful statement. Liberty is not man's idea. It's God's idea, and the founders knew that which is why they call it the blessings of liberty did not call it the benefits of liberty. They did not say the enjoyment of liberty. They did not say the luxury of liberty. They said, the blessings capital B of liberty to ourselves and to our posterity. Now, what does that mean? They're looking intergenerational. The founders knew, as Edmund Burke did that there's a three tied not every successful and functioning civilization. What comes before you matters what is happening now matters and what's going to happen Matters. The founders realized that any government that is only worried about sending stimulus checks to people now and not worry about the price tomorrow is not a moral government. A government that will print money into obscurity because who cares? We're all dead in the long run. As John Maynard Keynes would say, there's not a moral government. Instead, they said, we must make a contract to compact promise. An obligation to people that are not yet born. This idea of looking forward to the unborn to the future generations was unique to the American system. Not just worrying about Sustenance and momentary pleasure. Instead, the founding fathers embraced ancient wisdom..

"On this beautiful Monday night. I want to get to some audio cuts from Andrew Sullivan, who writes a sub stack and he has an indispensable Blog. I guess you would still call it. But he's one of these rare freethinkers in a day and age where tribalism rules. He often surprises people with his perspectives on Covid, Afghanistan, race relations, social justice. It's hard to peg him any one way he is, I would say a classical. Liberal. I find his views so refreshing, um, host of topics, and he sat down with Bill Maher on his show Friday and spoke a little bit about his firing from New York magazine. Talked a little bit about social issues. And more about this moment in American history and actually Just how big of a miracle this country has been. And what a blessing. It has been to the world. We've lost sight of that. It seems in our public discourse and thank you, Andrew Sullivan for clarifying so many of these issues for us. Here's the first cut. I want to play, and in it, he talks about why and how he was fired from New York magazine and what it says about the state of journalism and traditional media. Don't know why so terrible to have someone in a magazine or in a complete a mix of things Have someone a dissenter in the magazines? Fun, right? I mean, that's the whole point. I grew up wanting to debate wanted to argue. I had a big Irish Catholic family. We fought about everything. What was the problem? Afterwards we got together. We had a nice drink. We were totally cool about it. It's the editors are responding to social Media, social media Twitter, right? Is what creates these online mobs that create this pressure on the editors to fire individual right is even if the editors are fine with the rider and the real problem with this is not so much the work in the online media because they are awful, and they should be ignored. But they aren't It's the point of the people running these institutions, liberal institutions, universities, magazines, newspapers, They don't have the balls to say no. We will. We do believe in a plurality of views. We are going to defend unpopular writers. We are going to defend free thought and free speech. We're not going to couch out to the Internet Mobs mob mentality groupthink. We're going to allow for dissent for differing views. That really is what America is all about. Go to Afghanistan. Go to North Korea Go to China. One view is accepted one. That's it. And humanity flirts with this notion of uniformity, and it always leads to disaster. Read the Founders, Federalist Papers written by John Jay, James Madison and Alexander Hamilton. They often talk about if you try to get everybody to think exactly the same. You either have to course it or you have to brainwash people. It's imperative we allow for differing views to be expressed openly and not have to fear consequences of being fired or cancel and too often that is not happening. In journalism, media education and in the corporate world right now, and Andrew Sullivan brings up a great point he goes on. There are two ways to think of of looking at the world. The one is to see it as individuals coming against each other, regardless of their race or sex and having a compensation, using reason, persuading each other or not persuading each other. Deliberating the common good for democracy. That's what it's about. But when you start defining people not as individuals, but as members of a race or agenda and then saying that some races have to be given more precedent over other races, some genders have preferred to other agendas. And what we can't have this conversation without having all of that set out in advance. This started in the universities. It becomes obsessive in people's minds. And then the newspapers and magazines in journalists actually were desperate for money brought in a whole bunch of very young. People straight out of these colleges and didn't have the balls to put up with him. And then all of us are in this current climate in which things like due process, finding out if something is true or not, Before you condemn somebody had taking up a person's whole body of work into account instead of thing, one single thing you're going to get damned for forever. Lot of these concepts seem so basic, but they were not instilled in the current generation that holds most of the power at the very institutions that Sullivan is talking about right now. Different ethos. A different zeitgeist has captured the imagination of this generation. And it's a troubling one. Sullivan goes on to talk about how we teach race in schools a very hot button issue right now, I know you've you've written a lot about how we seem to have been giving up on the idea of a color blind society, which used to be the goal. It is the goal. It must be the goal. But it's like humanity matters more than the part of humanity were from an America. Of all places. The most multiracial, multicultural society on Earth will not survive. If we are constantly in warfare between groups or genders. We can absolutely should acknowledge that this country has a racist history that needs to be confronted directly and talk it and taught in schools, of course, and and the point, But you can do them. What they want to do is say that is the Single meaning of America. Racial oppression, Nothing else matters. The country was founded in 16 19, not 17 76. Because slavery is what this country's about. Well, you know what it is about that we are, but we're also about so much else. We're about religious freedom. We're about freedom of speech were about the empowerment of minority and things have changed greatly since 16 19 its look and anywhere in the world. Do you think the Chinese less racist than we are? You think the Russians of It's a miracle what we do in this country. Music to my ears. Bravo! Here here. Amen To that. We need more messaging like this full of truth and, yes, nuance and complexity. Andrew Sullivan there on real time with Bill Maher. All right, moving on pivot, sounder time..

They did with warp speed and everything else but they said until we get the vaccine and reach herd immunity. You're going to have to wear these masks. And then once the vaccine was available to encourage more people to get the vaccine they said by the way if you are vaccinated take those masks off unvaccinated you keep them on now here. We are today and we're still supposed to be so terrified of this disease or virus that has a ninety nine and a half percent recovery rate. John w whitehead.
