Dr. Robert Jeffress: Biden Administration Is the Ungodliest in American History
"A good friend of this program is causing a big stir out there. Pastor Robert jeffress on Sunday made the following pronouncement that the Biden administration is the ungodliness administration in the history of our country. I don't care how many rosary beads they rob. A doctor Jeffers. Well, welcome to the show. You just really have a way with words. And by the way, there's nothing anti Catholic about that. If Joe Biden were professing baptist, I would say I don't care how many times he gets dunked. He is the ungodly head of an administration. We have ever had if you just look at his policies. Yes. And let's talk about that because again, you're catching a lot of fire for what you had to say. Why is Joe Biden the ungodly as president? Why is this the ungodly administration in American history? First of all, understand the context. I was not just popping off in the pulpit about Joe Biden or politics. I'm preaching through the book of acts and I was detailing the first Christian martyrs Steven and how that happened and how persecution began against the church in the first century. It didn't happen all at once. It happened incrementally. It started with the marginalization of Christians, then the isolation of Christians that led finally to the extermination of Christians. And I said, we shouldn't expect anything less. Jesus said in this world, you're going to have tribulation. And I believe that the Biden administration is starting a persecution, not against all people who call themselves Christians, but against Bible believing

David has an infectious personality and in spite of the challenges he's faced due to his injuries, he's been able to completely switch careers and become a sound designer while juggling also being a husband and dad. Aside from the obvious questions like how does he work? I also wanted to know what it was like for him to face this. What was going through his mind in the days and weeks after the accident, and how did he discover a talent for sound design? This conversation is going to inspire the hell out of you and lord knows it inspired the hell out of me. So let's give it up for David Jeffers. Right after we hear from one of our amazing school of motion alumni. Hi, my name is Ignacio Vega and I live in San Jose Costa Rica. School's motion helped me broaden my perspective and see motion to sign not only as a tool in my job but as an art form itself.

He sent me this spot that they had just completed for the paralympics. And he mentioned that you did the sound design for it and that you were quadriplegic. And so my first thought was like, how are you doing it? How does that work? And I wanted to talk to you, so we don't know each other. I just emailed you and I was like, hey, you want to come on a podcast and here you are. So why don't we start with that project and you're involvement with this is Ben? How did you get hooked up with them and ended up working on this? Okay, well, it actually goes back several years. You know, I've actually known Ricardo since 7th grade. Oh wow. Yeah, we've been great friends. We've had record labels. We've had production companies. We've done all these different kind of businesses over the years. And then, you know, he went off to do the motion design stuff and this is the short abbreviated version, but you know I got hurt and you know he's always looking out trying to find different things that I could do for the company because I actually started out being a disability consultant for them. And then one day he was like, man, we need some sound design help. You work on music all the time. You've done the label stuff..

Yesterday she had a blast and and then maybe getting to talk to. You was the icing on the cake. After the after the after the speech or whatever it was because the cova we went outside and took pictures for awhile and while while i was talking to a number of young students your granddaughter Told me about you and your your loyalty to us. And so we said well. Let's call her so we we had a chance to say hello to you. Well it was neat. It was neat for her. And me. And i i just appreciate any help. You can give her in in her future. 'cause she she's a go-getter as you can tell you are i remember. I remember talking to her. Obviously i remember talking to you but what what is she studying it alabama. I think she's studying journalism. But i'm not positive on that we are. I was just curious because yeah they were all journalism. People just put their various degrees whether you go into print or social media public relations speaking. I just could not remember which one she was interested in. But i i'm sure we'll we will be talking to her again. I'm sure you will and thank you so much. For your time powell. And for for taking time with her she really enjoyed it. It was a great day for her boy under you. Take care of yourself. And i enjoyed talking to you as well. Thank you so much i right. Thank you bye-bye and it really was fun. It's much like what we're doing here with all the student reporters it's just to To get a chance to and without you know in the last year there has not been Any opportunity or very little opportunity to to get the campuses and it was just so great to To be on that campus Which i know so well You know so. Many aspiring journalists and communication people so Thank you for the call. We will talk a little bit more about that. Later on ian is up next in south carolina. Hello hey call how you doing today. We're doing well. Thank you Before i get started. I'd just like to say i'm a really big fan. I've been listening to your show for a long time. And i know all of us Not only do. I agree with a lot of your opinions but all i know all of us appreciate your passion for the game So thank you for what you do. Thank you very much I just said One one quick question so i live in greenville south carolina. I'm in upstate. So i'm kind of about forty five minutes away from the clemson campus about two hours away from the south carolina campus. So obviously i'm surrounded by a lot of clemson tigers however My question is this. I was curious to get your thoughts. Not only on the shame higher in general. But how you feel. He's doing heading into the season you know. I kind of feel as if he's saying all the right things. I love his passion for the school. I'm sure you know this. But he was actually a part of steve spurrier staff he. He recruited a lot of our really good players. When we were having those eleven win seasons went and got the more experience at oklahoma. So i know he's he's very passionate and he loves the school and he does seem to be saying all the right things Now is it too much of a gamble to hire someone who's never actually had head coaching experience before in the sec. Because what. I'm hearing from a lot of the people in upstate is this. They're drawing comparisons to daboh swinging. Because he's young he's charismatic and he doesn't have that head coaching experience but the school is betting on him. And i was curious to see if you saw that. That was maybe too much of a gamble or if you think. He has a large upside because he is having some recruiting success. Thus far and i think the davos tweeting model is going to be used As long as it can be used if you if you follow me. He's done about everything you can do right. And now the lights come on. And i don't have any earthly idea what's going to happen. But unlike some coaches who have been about exciting to watch as paint drying Shane beamer who has has won the off season in many respects. And i think that's admirable and you hope that it helps in recruiting. Because that's what he has to do to to be dabbled sweeney and to be competitive in the sec. He needs better players in there. He needs type players in there now that he helped get in there ten years ago..

"Right now. yes there in. Thank you so much for having me on today. I'm really excited to be here. We'll thank you a lot of things. Want to talk to you about. But first i want to start with lane kiffin. We just listening to the auburn coach. Talk about covert and vaccinations. And i don't know if i'd seen her coach. Get more attention. Positive attention than coach kiffin. I saw him on one of the major network shows the other day. Where did i think it was in the wall street journal. This week there was a there was a big article on him. Talk a little bit about his influence. Not only on his football team but on that campus. Yes sir as you know lane. Kiffin did have almost as the first. Sec team to reach one hundred percent vaccination rate and so. I think he's really just set an example for our university and for the city of oxford in general just to push that vaccines are here and his team is a hundred percent vaccinated. So they're ready to play. They're not gonna forfeit a game because of cova well and speaking of the season. It's it's around the corner. And i want to get to the grove in the second because i know you've done a lot of reporting on that but Just describe on that. Campus catherine the optimism for this on this football team. Yes sir. everyone is so excited to get back in bought hemingway and just to see the second year of lane. Kiffin squad this offense a strong where powerful under mackrell and we're ready to win and we're ready to play and interestingly the critics agree as i'm sure you know a lot of people are giving the rebels a chance to to have a really strong finish. Well you can't talk about ole miss without talking about the grove. And i it is just one of it may well a lotta people think it is the best game tradition. I know you probably agree with me on that but take take us a little bit deeper into a little deeper dive into this because that was not really a big part or any part of college football last year this year. What is going to be like on the grove correct. So last year we did not the grove and we didn't have trash can fridays. Which is one of the students favored things here. Almost every friday they put out red and blue trash cans thousands of them covering the grove in the circle. Just to get ready for the tends to set up that night so one's really looking forward to that and just there is no atmosphere like the grove. I actually grew up in auburn tigers. Fan so i to experience the grove until i came to this so being able to experience it for the first time. There's nothing like it. So i'm so excited for these freshmen. And even the sophomores to experience it for the first time. Okay catherine I've been to The grove many many times even on that friday. And and and i'm gonna ask you to describe that in the mid but but but auburn fans as you know. We'll talk about the tiger walk as as a religious experience. So i'm not trying get you in trouble with your with your countryman here but how would you describe the difference between the two because they want one is Football team coming in another one is more of an experience all weekend long. But they're both pretty cool. I would say so yes I do have a heart for the grub though in a harvard. Welcome champions. I think it's there's something a little extra special about it Being able to see lane kiffin lead his team for the first time this year through. The of champions is definitely going to be exciting. He's such a personality and a great exciting coach to watch so i'm excited to see his game day outfits to those are really popular on twitter on instagram and there. There's just nothing like the grove. You have to be here at least once in your life. If you're any sort of college football fan to be able to experience it cares. What i'm gonna let you describe it we We've been there many times For the saturday. Show and on friday while we're doing our program all of a sudden i'm looking behind me. I have no earthly idea. What is going on but people are running like it's the california goal rush for those who have never been there. Could you describe what you alluded to a minute ago. But what is this all about yes so the grove is our home game day tradition. It's a huge patch of grass really in the center of campus and every friday every year. Every home game. We sat out thousands of trash cans to kind of to to serve service trashcans for the tents that get setup so friday night there's a race to set up your tents and once you wake up saturday morning. The grove is covered. You can't see anything except just red and blue ole miss tents and you just kind of mingle in linger before the game There's some food there's some drinks and then our spirit squads do of grove show so our cheerleaders are rebel. Ads are banned. They kind of send us off before The of champions and then lane will lead his team into vaught hemingway and get ready for the games catherine I've always wondered Matter who you are a whether you're the most influential ole miss alarm or or just plain old folks like us you're not there's no reserve spot. It's every every person for themselves so there are some season passes in season reserve spots. There's wanting specific The zebra tent. That's a pretty famous ten on campus. And so you you pretty much. If you buy a season ten you're gonna have you're gonna have a spot but there are lots of students that actually get paid by people to go set up their tents for them at night which is really funny without revealing any campus secrets. And what kind of money can can A young student make on On a wealthy alarm. Gosh i think i read somewhere. That students will get paid anywhere from around two hundred dollars to get there at seven pm and wait for wait for the ten spots to start opening up so a couple of hundred bucks on a weekend. It's pretty good for a college student. Maybe more than i had in my entire four years of college. However let me ask you this. Are there particular spa. Aside from where the high the high end people camp out at the grove is not that big. I know people think it's just a massive place. So is there a. Is there a position on the grow that you want to be locked down on. I think any in the grove is a great spot. Like you said it it really. Isn't that big. Any ten is walking distance within one. Another so you can start on one end by the grove stage and walk all the way towards the edge of the grove in and you can make that walk in probably three minutes pretty small. let me Ask about Your ascendancy in in communications and what you're doing now as the campus sports editor How where where did you. Where did you grow up to your an auburn fan. So my great grandparents grandparents and my mom and dad all went to auburn but i grew up in orlando and i've eventually decided that almost was the place for me pretty much after you visit at once. We do call it. The velvet ditch. You're stuck so if you don't wanna come to almost don't visit it because you'll end up coming here. Say yes so i am. So how did it go over with your family when you When you pull the trigger on this. I think they were all expecting me to say i was going to go to auburn so it was definitely a surprise. But they're so supportive. My parents love coming to the grove. They're coming this year for the first time in two years. So they're so excited to be back and not to sound like one of your parents but what Ultimately would you like to do with your degree in your experience At the school paper. Yes sir so. I am a journalism and marketing major here with minors in english and business and ultimately i think my goal is to work for professional sports team in the.

So far out in the future. That i don't think it will have an immediate effect. And there's no way of really being able to predict with the vagaries of college football where this will be in five or ten years so i i do not agree with your basic premise.

Will giving Happy the elephant human rights actually make her happy?
"Elephant at the Bronx Zoo named Happy the elephant, All right, who was in court last week? Well, actually not in court because they didn't bring happy into the courtroom, But there was a group called the Nonhuman Rights Project. That brought a lawsuit against the city of New York actually state of New York to have happy declared a person to give happy personhood. 49 year old female Asian elephants been living by herself in conditions that have well they're not wonderful to say the least. And so here, the appeals court determining whether animals or people pita Has been making these claims and filing lawsuits for years. Pita you know that bread that Mideast earner so eat? No, no, the people for the ethical treatment of animals. I always get the two confused and There. It's case after case that's filed last time. I think they did one with a chimpanzee, arguing that the genetics of chimpanzees and humans are so close. They should be. They should be both considered human beings and the court said Now I don't think so. And then there's been some really crazy ones that Richard the durable, for example, was once The plaintiff in a lawsuit to be declared A person and so here, the justices looking at this and they're actually looking. There was an appeals court decision. The loss course low record and kicked it up, and I guess the court wanted to hear it. Because the appeals court could say no S o. The judges were a little skeptical, and one of the joint justices said. Isn't this better suited for the Legislature to act on legislatures can actually deem animals People, uh, pursuant to a legislative act now that if that holds up in court, no one knows, But if anybody's gonna do, it's gonna be the Legislature and then the Justice said, I'm not so sure we're equipped to even handle these kinds of matters. And what the group argued is that happy's living conditions at the Bronx Zoo was effectively solitary confinement and arguing she's been mistreated. Now, think about this for a moment. And there's some practical aspects of this because right now animals you own their property. It's that simple. You buy. You sell animals and your that's it now. What if the animals were people? I mean, think about this legally. This is not one of those. He What if animals were people, Then we start to, you know, flying off on fantasies? No. Legally if animals repeated were people you can't own a dog. You're not allowed to own people. They call it slavery Abraham Lincoln and 14th amendment in all that stuff, Actually 13th amendment and so it has been an ongoing fight. So practically speaking, Of course, there's nowhere to go with that aunt. Legally speaking, there's nowhere to go with that, although do you remember Mitt Romney during the run for the presidency, he said. Corporations are people. And that may have cost him the race. He was nailed for that well, corporations are people for purposes of shielding liability. That's what corporations are about. They are an entity. They're not people. But they have Ah, lot of the same shields. And so they've bean s o the animal rights people of this you using that a lot Hey of corporations to be Dean people than certainly non humans, animals, hamsters, durables so happy the elefant. Can be named people. So anyway, of course, is going to go no place, but it's just kind of fun, man. I love these lawsuits.

Why White evangelical support for Trump goes beyond his policies
"Faster in front in front of the presidents who is also its virtue. Advisor to presidents and big supporter of them is Dr Robert Jeffress. He may very well be tomorrow night in the White House with the president in their war room, watching election night coverage or wherever they're going to be. A Z was four years ago. Let's continue to our discussion with on our pre election night coverage with Dr Robert Jeffress. Dr Jeffers, Thank you for continuing to step. Stay with me for a little bit longer tonight. Appreciate that. Great to be with you. Tell me this. I gotta lots. Lots of things I want Teo continue to ask you about one of things. I want to ask you. Why should Christians vote? You know, Chris of theologian, Pastor Jon Piper wrote of s a couple of weeks ago. That's gotten a lot of notoriety and basically, he said. Yeah, Biden's guilty of being pro abortion. But Trump is arrogant and being pro abortion and arrogant are both deadly sins. So he's not voting for either one of them and went on to suggest that, you know, staying home and not voting is an option for Christians because nothing in the Bible that mandates that we vote. Well, I mean the arguments absurd. I mean, yes, Arrogance is bad. It's a sand but 40 million People haven't died because of Erica sounds like they have from abortion, the most marginalized group in ours. Society, the unborn, But beyond that, the fact is, we are, I think, mandated to vote and be sure it's true. You don't find voting in the Bible In biblical times, you didn't vote for emperors or rulers. They and their policies were imposed on you. But, you know, John J. The first chief justice of our Supreme Court, said. God has given us the privilege of choosing our leaders. And when you think about it, Chris, that's an amazing thing. We get to choose our leaders. Our leaders choose the policies we live under and buy. Policies. They choose whether we're headed in the direction of righteousness or un righteousness, and if we're really Christian, gentle, Jesus said. Love your neighbour as yourself. We ought to be concerned about the policies not only that we live under, but the policies that others have to live under. We also seek policies and labors that will do the most good or at least the least amount of harm. And that's why people auto, though we have the power to determine the direction of our country bar vote. Dr Jeffers. What has the president done from your perspective? And what will he do if given another four years from a perspective as a in evangelical leader? I'll slash citizen of the country. Well, first of all, you know, evangelicals are Americans, So I mean, we all have some common interest. We're interested in the economy east. I mean, evangelicals like to eat, just like anybody else. We liketo have money that we can give. And so we care about the economy. We care about the national defense, and I think this president has a tremendous record with the economy is well is securing the protection of our nation. But of course, the things evangelicals are best known for carrying about Didn't pardon me or the sanctity of life. Nobody's been more pro life than this president. Yes, we care about the religious liberty. I mean, he cares about religious liberty, not just Americans, but for the entire world. He was the first president. You don't barred me tohave a symposium at the United Nations on religious persecution I attended. It was just unbelievable. And then what he's done with the judiciary. 200 conservative federal judges confirmed with Lifetime appointments. Three now conservative Supreme Court justices. I mean, Chris President Trump has delivered like no other Republican president. The history when it comes to the specific issues. You know what else I was reading Dr Jefferson. The weekend was remind me of one of my friends. Shane Prude who you know whose always speaks in our church is a friend of mine lover man and he's a friend of yours. He came on once until the White House regularly and I read about this and I go. I know someone who is part of this regularly invites. And this doesn't get publicized evangelical leaders young like Shane, and more seasons will say it nicely, right? Very you and other great leaders in the area like Dr Gramm it Ah, in Plano. Etcetera. But, um, e. And behind the scenes invites them listens to them. Ask them what they need. And what their concerns are. Have you ever seen this before? Obscenity of the last four years? I mean, no other president has done this. I mean, I know I have friends that worked at the White House. They worked under Bush, both bushes. They worked out there under Reagan. They said Never has this White House been is open, not just the evangelicals, but people of all faiths. I think the last thing I saw was like 5000 faithful years have been to the White House in the last four years, and he's just unbelievable. Unbelievable. You're one last thing here. Dr Jeffers for let's go and let's get some rest for possible travel to the White House again tomorrow. Your prediction, which whatever you do, maybe you don't want to do it at all. It's find me but just as a personal thing that your prediction and which states do you think are in the bag for trump or or or wants to be concerned, But just from your personal of Thoughts. You know, I'm going to leave that to the pundit. I'm just going to leave it a political expert you I just think it's hard to say I will tell you you have been in communication recently with the senior campaign officials. They feel good about Texas and so well that we'll see if that is well founded, but that some people thought they ought to come to Texas. But they felt like yeah, it will be good, but Let me just say this, Chris in closing. If you're a Christian, a person of faith you need to pray like this entire election depends upon God. But you need to go out and vote tomorrow. If you haven't as if this entire election depends upon you. There you go. And there's there's ah, the Houthi pastor up in D. C. Who, Ah, price praying circles. He's Ah, Forget his name now, Diego Mark Patterson wrote. I read his book, and he talks about his prey like a depends on God and and work like a depends Son used to do both. And that's exactly what you summed up right there. I could not agree with you more. I know the Battersea degrees DEA and Dr Robert Jeffress. Thank you very much. Look forward to your next instalment on the courageous Siri's thatyou're doing, which is fantastic. Check him out at first Dallas dot org's watch online all over the world. Dr. Jeffers, Thank you for coming on tonight.

"Jeffers and he's the one that wrote those felicitous lines happiness had this public quality to it in addition to the private one and happiness was closer to what we might call national security mmhm that we had to happiness as a nation and they called it public happiness or social happiness we had that kind of happiness when our leaders consulted human reason and looked at data from the world in which we live in our front end using our five senses to try to make sense of that data and to protect the polity however defined a Republican empire from threats whether those threats were external invaders or internal you know civic a civil war right internal enemies public happiness than the pursuit of that happiness was going to come through the enlightened rule of enlightened leaders and you know we forget that public quality of those words in the declaration of independence but there are some of the most kind of profound distillations of the words of the in the convictions of the enlightenment that is if the future is ours now as humans and and we sort of we deserve it we are entitled to to feathering our own nests using the you know the most glorious quality that we have which is our reason and our imagination so I wanted to write a book about those people you know they said all those things right and we we hear that we think yes so that just seems like the normal way of of running something but we have to remember the world and all these people were coming out of this was a world of kings and of popes and of authority that was based on things that had been done in the past papacy and monarchy these are genealogical ways of of articulating the right to power why should you be the King George because my father was the king at center at center and there's the apostolic says succession of the pope the enlightenment tears away at that justification based on the past and instead it it sort of says no what matters is now for our political leaders the only thing that matters is the most recent election and that's why the presidency of the United States is such a profound political innovation in seventeen eighty nine is that they have to re imagine a powerful executive they don't want a week executive because they're still in a world of monarchies with their big arm it's right in Napoleon is yet to come up with is even bigger armies so they need a powerful executive but they need to somehow justify that executive power on the basis of enlightenment reason and they put that reason into the hands of the people and they say you know every four years we're gonna consult these people here and so there's a way in which American democracy is always renewed its constantly now it's constantly modern and we now take that for granted but compare that to the papacy or monarchies that are you know as the lions the king is dead long live the king right behind us that part of the justification is through this internal line into the past and you know the American enlightenment is so vertiginous it in some ways because it cuts the United States loose from that in the little craft sets single into this new future you know that we hope is going to be happy but the only thing that is standing between us and disaster is is reason three I think this one of the great things about history is to let us know what the decisions were like by the people at the time in the context of the time because it's easy to say these people were terrible because they didn't do this correctly other than to backtrack Lee according to the way we do things now but they were moving things away from the way it was done to the way we do it now and it seems that each step of the way our society our culture needed to gain enough confidence to say yeah that's that's okay we can do that without ruining our society we can extend the vote to every every male that has you know a hundred thousand dollars worth of value in their land or whatever something like that well that works we can extend a little bit further because a little further I think it's the cultural overwhelming cultural confidence that America had after World War two because we had succeeded of everybody else doesn't fail this in our own minds and now had five some of the world's population but fifty percent of the production going on here and I think in that heavy confidence in spite of the fact that the Cold War was scary and other things for scary that that finally so many ancient prejudices were broken down against the Jews against Catholics against other groups and then against women and then again for racial reasons and that now then for L. G. B. T. reasons that that these things are based on the confidence of the culture to say we can live culture our way and still tolerate all kinds of other cultures and to me this is a profound thing that we need for the world because at the end these things take a long time as you've written about into terms of how long it took America to go from the idea of a Republic based on democracy in in the eighteenth century until we finally got the vote you know in nineteen twenty for the women and finally you know other things and we're still fighting for for smaller and smaller groups but you know sometimes the idea everybody who's an adult you know should be able to this equally will will have sat hold and there won't be any just you know ideas about the different groups who can camp although by then our children will pop the same way we have to wait until we're eighteen well that's actually a good question it's the enlightenment that tells us that human reason doesn't fully kick in added civic capacity until we're adults but you know kings in queens were ruled obviously with that region as children so it is one of the features of the of the enlightenment that once you say that human reason is the entry ticket to participation you have to do and we can kind of get into the dark side of the enlightenment here is you have to then begin defining people out of out of it lightened participation and so a great modern racial hierarchies ironically are born during the enlightenment because you say well okay everybody who has reason can vote and that but we don't want all our slaves you know of which there are a million you know around the time of the American revolution in four million by the eve of the civil wars so none of those people get to vote and the question then is on what grounds and then the new grounds is that they lack the full capacity of of reason like children and like women blah blah blah blah so one of the legacies then that the enlightenment has given us is to wrestle with its contradictions once we've elevated reason to this pedestal we have to to to to deal with that mmhm and to to come to terms with its contradictions and the new problems that it generates for us you're one of the things that the people who call themselves enlightened believed was that there was a thing called progress no Americans take this for granted today and some people get really angry with me when I point out to him that progress is a mess and so is decline they're all narratives that we place upon history but the ideal of progress that that it was our god given you know trajectory to to move ever upward ever forward in that when we don't it's a form of decline that that way that framework for understanding history was put into place in the eighteenth century and we again wrestle with it today when times are hard we say well what about the progress which we were promised what happened and what is the opposite of progress is it decline and when we have to call you at center so we've we tie ourselves a new different kinds of knots but they also said and this is a corollary that we don't often remember is that they thought that they were never done that that enlightenment was not a state that anyone could achieve it was an ongoing process in fact the book closes with a quotation from Jefferson on his deathbed the last letter that he wrote in eighteen twenty six and he said essentially you know all lights are opening to the rights of man but they're not all the way open yet we're not there yet and this again leaves us with this open ended legacy of enlightenment we never know you know are are we like kids in the back of the conference are we there yet are we even halfway there and then what is the goal what do we do when we do get there the second thing I would say about the comment that you made about how you know it's easy to look back at people in the eighteenth century and and say well they warning light at all yeah you know they held slaves they didn't let women vote the the number of atrocities committed were huge and there were more to come but what I always say to my students is that you do you know the the goal of the historian is not to judge that's the role of politicians is to look about us and it's our role as citizens to look around ourselves and to say this is not right we must change this and so I will go to the voting booth I will run for public office because I must change this thing that is wrong in my society now that's a very different activities then the role of the historian the role of the historian is is a very modest journey humble journey to go back into a time for which we have almost no data and to try to understand without judging because to understand that you know as we all know it with one another is far more difficult than to judge and then try doing it with almost no data and and we really really have to be modest and careful about what we can do in the past so what I you know I counsel my students you know we're gonna look at these documents together we're gonna look at these images together and we're gonna try to just sort of meet these other people half way at least if we can and to try to understand something when there's so many traps that await us one of the greatest ones being language itself as I you as we saw with the example I use of the pursuit of happiness some of the most famous words in American history that we routinely miss recliners the misunderstanding because words change their meanings over time yeah it's fast in and I was wondering when you're talking about earlier that the pursuit of happiness that phrase which is as we say we take for granted now and we take it personally and not publicly how common does that does that have a history does that go back a lot further than Jefferson and and it does go back to ancient times or does it or it is that perception that we can make the public happy rather than just the king happy with a fairly new thing yeah well as you can imagine there are versions of happiness that extended to the ancient world inert of Greeks and Romans had these ideas about contentment ten and happiness of various kinds and then of course there's the more religious version of happiness the happiness that awaits us in the after life at center of the eternal happiness but what's really new in the eighteenth century is to harness the concept of human happiness a secular happiness to the very meaning of the polity itself that the purpose of human society which actually itself now if we had a four hour conversation we'll do that next week we you know society itself is a new idea but but the new idea in the declaration of independence is that that's really the whole point of the exercise is to be happy in society together mmhm and we a wrecked human governance governments.

Trump Says Trade War With China Could Drag On
"President trump sent a shockwave through the markets after announcing a trade deal with China might make more sense after the twenty twenty on election then early this morning as we started squawk box the markets reversed course and indicated to open higher on a Bloomberg report. That people familiar with the matter said the. US and China China are getting closer to agreeing on the amount of tariffs that would be rolled back in a phase one trade deal. This is all happening while. President trump is in London for the seventieth anniversary of NATO's founding and let's get back to Becky I guess there's a lesson from the last twenty four hours. It's every trade headline could swing things in one direction or the other markets gets are watching this waiting to see what happens as we get closer to that December fifteenth deadline for win. Additional tariffs are expected to go on. If there's not a trade deal that's reached yesterday. Yesterday was A little bit of a rough session for stocks the Dow at one point following more than four hundred points before closing down by two hundred and fifty points. That's just worst day since early October. And that tells you a little bit about where we've come in these markets the idea that a one percent pullback. We haven't seen that in over two months. How are we hitting new highs for two three months up to thirty one day or so on the SNP? But I think a lot of that was built on the assumption that you would see if not some trade deal that was done. Additional tariffs on our back to that. We're back we're GONNA supposedly according to this person who knows which persons which campus which we're going to have something by December fifteen th and there will be additional tariffs anyway anyway when it was all said and done we have a two day. One wasn't caught call market trauma. Let's at one point. One point nine percent point nine for all time is one percent for the year one point nine percent down from all time by the way much needed needed it. It's good thing overall. I need more Shaka tree is a what is this. This is not even a I don't know this is like a hangnail. Look equity even psoriasis. Equity exposure exposure has been optimistic for the entire year. You have a friendly fed. That's underneath the market. That's supporting the market. Anytime cautious optimism evolves into extreme stream optimism which over the last couple of weeks. It seems to have. It's good if you temper. That enthusiasm have a little bit of a pullback in the market because that leads you to the next road higher. Let's get the latest trade buzz from Jeffers in Washington who was it. Amen was up from our side and it was at the the more Eh wasn't Navarro. Probably have you think it was Mnuchin or something the source for this Bloomberg piece that we're all talking about this morning yes you know. There's like three senior administration officials who do tend to talk not sure I can name exactly which senior administration officials Bloomberg but they're saying. US China move closer or to trade deal Despite heated rhetoric so that gives you a sense that we might be getting halfway there but a lot of these reports have been giving you the sense that we're getting halfway there and halfway there and halfway there as you know you can go halfway there forever without actually getting there so not clear what this necessarily means. The president is in London then where he has been making headlines about trade during the course of the week a lot of complexities on the global stage here for the president to sort through in London and will watch for those relationships during the course of the day today as we see these further bilateral meetings between the president and European leaders and whether we get any indication from any of those where any of these trade negotiations between the US and the European countries or the US and China where any of that is going to land. Joe There. I guess ascribing some some of president trump's comments or not ascribing but describing them as not necessarily policy but sort of speaking just off the top of his head. That's what we're hearing about the COP off. The COP does a lot of off-the-cuff does he does. And you know in in the way does it. You gotTa Love It. It's like I'm thinking that but I'm not going to say but right after he said it. which is it's just? It's kind of funny question yesterday. I don't want to answer that question. And then he answered the question he did Eh. Makoni is pretty funny to you. GotTa admit where he goes. That was the biggest non-answer you know your. That's why you're such a good politician because you really don't say tense meeting between Emmanuel Macron and big handshake Sanchez to write a squeezy handshake from down to one hundred percent taxes on two point. Four billion worth of French goods will make a relationship a little still thinking thinking about that. Can you still get. I still get French onion soup without without a terrorist. We're so we're GONNA in front of. Ah French fries. Though I saw another potatoes are getting smaller. I saw that today. I don't know whether it's climate change whether it. Hey Ain't you really concern me with getting getting halfway there and then halfway the halfway there because that's asymptotically analysis you will never get there. You realize that you can see where you're you're trying to get and you get closer to eat within a millimeter of getting there. But then you're only by two. Yeah you'll never ever get there. Let's just hope you're wrong about that. I mean that's the question is are we getting. There does indicate some underlying reality or are these just officials sort of talking to reporters on the on the sly one thing that's obscured scared with all the back and forth the Mnuchin wing that Navarre wing is. Is there a deal on the table for the taking if we wanted it right now is there takeoff on the tariffs and buy some. You'll score is that. Is that deal on news. That skinny deal on the table right. I mean it seems like the Chinese would would agree to buy something from the US in exchange for the US holding off on tariffs the question is how many what tariffs and which which of the tit. For Tat responses responses during the course of the year will be rolled back at what time that is much more complicated negotiation but you could imagine that the US was willing to roll back all of its tariff. Eric increases the Chinese would buy some goods call today. But that's not what the president got in this for. That's not what he wants. But let's get to Eunice you in Beijing for the trade bus from China just outlined launched in a bid on what you guys were discussing with aim on that Bloomberg report just based on on versus in China has said they are already thought that they we had an agreement on Tariffs Robak over a month ago. Our about a month ago. I know that's when the commerce ministry if you remember had said that there there is going to be a phase out of these tariffs and said it quite quite a proudly then the next day president trump head backed act away from it. So I think it's probably worth taking this latest report with a grain of salt until the until we actually we see hit

"Saturday afternoon everyone thank you so much for tuning in I'm C. Jeffers this is this chapter show I just want to touch a little bit on the impeachment really you can listen to any of our national shows and or or Monday through Friday shows they talk about impeachment all the time so you get all kinds of of opinions on on the impeachment but I just want everybody to know that this impeachment is exposing the Democrats for the partisan hacks that they are it is so embarrassing I am just I am just shocked that they keep plugging away with this he will have to realize that impeachment is the most important power tool powerful powerful tool that the legislative branch has and now the Democrats are using it as a political weapon and let me tell you something other than the hard core Democrat base on it everybody knows that everybody knows that and it I mean it it is so frustrating the first day they heard from two guys who had heard from another guy who heard from another guy who heard from another guy I mean I don't I don't even know what that was Democrats should be embarrassed of what's of what's come out in the last couple days day to we heard from all my god what a whiner that lady yesterday was so so the Democrats are claiming that trump has to be impeached because of a phone call that was made on July twenty fifth he released the transcript people read the transcript read the transcript and I don't care what anybody says the big part of this to me is is Joe Biden corrupt to the core Hillary Clinton the Clinton foundation hunter Biden all of them I I want all of that to come out that's why we elected Donald Trump was to drain that swamp and that it is just so this this impede these impeachment hearings are are exposing this for exactly what it was LAT yesterday that was on the ex ambassador from the Ukraine trouble is right to fire her she's a whiner she's a whiner she even admitted she didn't know anything she no she hadn't hadn't didn't have any evidence that trump had committed a crime didn't didn't have any evidence of of anything and the dems called her a patriot all I can say as a help desk I hope trump keeps firing these creek career bureaucrats and we've seen what this impeachment process it has has has done the Democrats failed on process they failed on substance substance and it's just so ridiculous that it's disastrous its secretive sometimes it's below and behind closed doors sometimes it isn't yeah I know the whistle blower no I don't know the whistle blower and nobody can say the whistle blowers name but yeah the whistle blower never heard anything anyway they just heard it from somebody who heard it from somebody else and in the meantime we've got a video we've got a video of Joe Biden the former vice president bragging about getting more in getting a foreign official fired and and that's it that's just absolutely shocking hunter hunter Biden getting paid over three million dollars to to sit on some board and I want all of this looked at I want the former vice president I want a bomb I want Hillary I want the Clinton foundation I one button son I want all of them I wanna mall exposed all of them exposed and then I'm happy to say that the independence and the non affiliated voters still oppose impeachment thank goodness I heard I saw on Twitter one immigration lawyer said I'm not a trump voter and I oppose many most of his policies that said anyone with any intellectual honesty can see that this hearing is a sham devoid of any semblance of due process go ahead Democrats vote to impeach you've lost any chance at this independence vote and and that's I mean that says it all right there Rasmussen said it a pull out last week seventy six percent of the Republicans forty eight percent and unaffiliated voters and even thirty six percent of the Democrats said most reporters are trying to help impeach trump yeah that's not what they're supposed to be doing but whatever so I'm not my not my circus not my monkeys but it's an embarrassment Democrat should be embarrassed for the partisan hacks that they are I don't think it'll do enough keep it up dams trouble when by a landslide keep it up keep it up okay I want to jump in now because I want to I wanna this his irritated me since the election so since November felt fifth and I am I I've had a couple conversations with people who live in new Brighton they don't really consider themselves political or well they might think they are but they really aren't but it's like wake the hell up people I I am so frustrated at people who don't pay attention and who don't care more about politics because it impacts every single aspect of your life the election a couple weeks ago November fifth I was shocked at how many complacent people there there were out there I was absolutely shocked I was working at the food volunteering at the food shelf last week and this lady came in and it was snowing outside this lady came in and she didn't have boot Sir Hannah and she said I've stopped watching the news because I don't everything so crazy I just I just can't listen to it anymore and I looked at her I said it's snowing out you've got to pay attention it you've got to pay attention to the weather because we live in Minnesota but it's your job as as as a United States citizen to pay attention to what's going on and this complacency the it it it's it's soul frustrating to me that people aren't paying more attention I just got my property tax statement Ramsey county had announced they were mailing out the property tax statements and so I got mine yesterday I think it was and if on November fifth well the stupid people in my district will talk a little bit more about that in the next segment the stupid people in my district came out and voted yes for a huge school levy a school levy that will increase people's taxes over a thousand dollars a year and it will continue to increase every single year for the next ten years and you had people who who either said the children are worth it or no that doesn't impact me it will it does impact you and my next door neighbor has to have a garage sale every summer so she can make money so that her children can do fun things over the summer now she's going to be having that garage sale so she can take that thousand dollars that you can earn from the garage sale yes she has a good garage sale this is gonna take that thousand dollars he's gonna put it towards taxes because she was dumb enough to think that that that that was a good idea we're gonna talk about restaurant fees and and how businesses tack on these huge fees whether it's to fix global warming to help pay for and should health insurance costs to help pay for regulatory things or minimum wage regulations any of these things that's it folks think a Democrat you wanna see anti small business policies that hurt small businesses look at a Democrat and and these things like like the minimum wager like any other labor intrusion Ortiz restaurant fees that are being tacked on the is not only hurt businesses but they hurt the employees and they hurt the customers to you and it's the same thing yeah people don't pay attention and their local entities are banning plastic forks and straws they're adding plastic bags on there I don't know what it's going to take to wake people up to realize the Democrats make your life harder and more expensive that your money can go further in another city that these local nanny state politicians trying to Mike micro manage every single aspect of your life for your own good of course are exceeding in what we want them to do you've got at the same time all this impeachment stuff was going on did you know the United States house Judiciary Committee just passed legislation that paves the way for the ratification of the equal rights amendment that is not your mom or your grandma's equal equal rights amendment folks this is a gender equity equal rights more so if you want boys to keep winning and girls sports if you want if you want that then you go ahead and vote for that but that is one step closer because people voted for Democrats we're whether whether you're talking about light rail transit or row diets or round about they fail to understand these local politicians fail to understand that that roads were built for commerce and people commerce and people we don't want to sit in on this congestion congestion wasting time and money and gas you've got statewide politicians here in Minnesota who want to close down perfectly good power plant to build unreliable expensive renewable energy projects they drive I got some stuff later on and that we're gonna talk about in in the Minnesota segment that we're gonna do talking about the Xcel energy rate increases these are unbelievable we live in Minnesota people we can't live without affordable energy we we just can't you've got you've got then the Democrats especially talking about amnesty you've got them talking about eliminating I use you've got them talking about open borders you've got Democrats who in bureaucrats who are in the IRS in the DOJ in line for in the intelligence agencies who are targeting conservatives targeting Americans where is the outrage people you have a government to spying on you a judicial system who has one set of rules and another set for for other people it's just it's it's so insane nobody speaks out to talk about the Democrats push to to focus on him income inequality income inequality that's income redistribution people and it's not an economic growth plan it's not it will hurt our country it'll hurt our economy it'll hurt the very people that they promise they're going promise that there there attempting to to help so you know what if you're not mad it you're not paying attention and I don't know what it's going to take to wake people up but I am so frustrated and and you know what to get this over and maybe it's because I wasn't on air for for her three or four weeks the there but on that November fifth election that election was just absolutely astonishing you know what the Democrat machine one again they turned their people out where the hell were you people where were you do you know I was out there let trapping every single day vote no on the mount view school levy I was out there like dropping every single day with a lady who needs a knee replacement and where were you other people where were you we had some great helpers Stephen barb and Arlene Arlene in Zimmerman thank you for listening to my show I I appreciate you sell so so very much and other people who helped but the people who are the most mad about this where were they when we were out let dropping in the snow in the rain in the cold where the hell are you now I give this is Nixon myself so much credit I give us so much credit because we lost but we moved the needle and we moved the needle a lot and it just tells you that we are waking some people up and I would also like to thank the one thousand one hundred and forty six election judges that were out there helping to make sure that that these were going on on election day here on November on November fifth Bernie who had just been in town a couple days before that Bernie said on election day Republicans all over the country are trying to make it harder for people.

"Everyone here's good Saturday afternoon everyone this is sue Jeffers of the C. jabber shelf love that name right they can never take it away for me is that near brilliance thing ever well yeah yeah yeah I know I'm having a little trouble today because I'm just so happy with my with my with my news alright I'm going to remind you once again I harp on this over and over and over and over and over and over again a top down one size fits all minimum wage is going to produce lots of unintended quant consequences it's going to provide lost jobs it's gonna provide fewer work hours and it's going to provide he were few higher consumer cost for the rest of us it is a stupid idea it's a bad idea and government should not come in and drive up the cost of labor this past week we saw Angie Craig dean Phillips Betty McCollum ill Han mark and Collin Peterson all voted yes to the raise the wage act this would raise the federal minimum wage to fifteen dollars an hour by twenty twenty five this is just absolutely shocking to me are these are these people do they want to kill small businesses if you need any more proof that these Democrats are anti small business look no further than the vote on this minimum wage increase I will repeat a one size fits all minimum wage is a bad idea and it is a job killer it is a job killer do you really think the people in New York can afford the same minimum wage that the people in Minnesota that people in Missouri that the people in Florida that the people in California that the people in Nevada that the people in Nebraska do you think they should all have to be paying the same wage no hell no and it just makes me furious I want to thank representative stopper representative amr and representative Hagadorn or at least having some common sense and not voting in favor of this we saw last week the Congressional Budget Office released a state up a study titled the affects of employment in family income of increasing in a federal minimum wage we saw how many jobs it would lose and and and they were talking about a range of a minimum wage increase I think somewhere from ten or twelve dollars all the way up to fifteen dollars the raise the wage active twenty nineteen introduced in January would set a minimum wage of twenty at a minimum wage of fifteen dollars by twenty twenty four the trade offs from this legislation are are are even worse than we anticipated the CBO found that a minimum wage would pull one point three million workers out of poverty at the cost of one point three million jobs and at the worst end of the scale possibly up to three point seven million jobs in a worst case scenario so to put that differently three people could lose their job for each person that this might pull out of poverty people just don't understand the ramifications you know that legislation sounds good it sounds so good until you have to put it in practice Bernie Sanders Bernie Sanders this past week they were pressuring him to get a fifteen dollar wage for his employees for his campaign staff but guess what when the price a labor went up Bernie bought less of it and the workers were no better off welcome to our world Bernie welcome to the reality check welcome to the lesson of econ one oh one Bernie wouldn't pay a staff staff fifteen dollars an hour so he told them okay if you're gonna pay us fifteen dollars an hour if I'm gonna pay you fifteen dollars an hour guess what I'm gonna do I'm gonna cut back your hours I'm gonna send a message that they aren't worth fifteen dollars an hour because they aren't worth that or into their work load and there's lots of with technology now there's there's a place I like to go down the road here and the some of the folks in there aren't particularly of the bridges balls in the world they're not worth fifty I go to this little machine a push three little numbers that I get a text message and out pops my pizza and I go on my way so yeah it's unbelievable it's it's unbelievable that people don't understand that you know what you have to be worth the money a you can't run a business if you don't have productive workers and when you have government coming in and saying guess what we're going to harm a whole bunch of citizens just so just so the people who are the least skilled or an entry level employee just so they can maybe get a job we're gonna give them more money what what do you think's going to happen people what do you think's going to happen the idea that the state should purposely intervene and harm some of its citizens to favor others is just it's just baffling to me it's just absolutely baffling that they think they that they think they know how to run businesses that they know what the cost of labor per hour should be and there are lots of Devon devastating way is that a fifteen dollar an hour minimum wage would hurt besides of course being a job killer I mean it's just a huge job killer the minute the minimum wages go up we've seen this in Minneapolis people layoffs staff they raise prices and and they hire people who have more experience for jobs rather than the than the new people who who might really need one it really does create a survival of the fittest labor market and stands right it increases the automation people are going to automate you sell more restaurants now that they don't even have cable service anymore you go up to the counter and you say here you know here's your order Orin Stansky's you press the three buttons and boom there it is you don't even have to talk to a person if you don't if you don't want to and people underestimate the impact of of the fifteen dollar an hour minimum wage businesses have no choice give me have no choice but to raise to raise the cost of their goods to raise the cost of their of their service and that means you pay more money of so you might be making fifteen dollars an hour but guess what your money doesn't go as far it absolutely doesn't go far and I I can't I cannot think I cannot think of any any business when we saw a minimum when I on the bar I cannot think of any business that didn't raise their prices and cut their staff I do I didn't see any of it it's also really bad for the economy it's a really bad for the economy and I have when did we get to be such an economically illiterate society that people just couldn't even couldn't even understand this I think it's absolutely holier yes that that Bernie Sanders said guess what I'm going to have to lay off people and and you know what folks I'm gonna tell ya I want you to send an email or call Angie Craig dean Phillips Betty McCollum ill hano Marin Collin Peterson and say what a what a horrible the idea that is to have the federal government come in and determine what the cost of labor should be per hour tell them no tell them we don't want a top down one size fits all minimum wage that that clearly they don't understand economics and that we we the unintended consequences from there feel good legislation is going to be fewer jobs fewer hours to work and higher consumer costs Tellem no no no hell now makes me so mad it makes me so mad okay I will rail about the minimum wage anymore if you want to do it because if you wanted to weigh in on at six five one nine eight nine five eight five five six five one nine eight nine five eight five five I did also want to tell you that we have some good news out of the United States Supreme Court this week the United States Supreme Court granted the trump administration the the approval to use two point five billion dollars in military funds to construct a part of the wall on the US Mexico border no surprise Ginsburg so to my are in cake and where the dissenters it was really interesting to watch to to watch the Democrats you know you talk about the minimum wage but this past week they were holding hearing after hearing after hearing two in particular where they were talking about the treatment of migrant children in the meantime you have the Senate yeah the Senate United States Senate at zero hearings on illegal alien sex of benders or sanctuary cities or cartels or drugs or gangs or what the border patrol and ice are up against and in the meantime Congress now went home Congress now when I went home they're they're off work for the next forty five days you should be seen our local art Minnesota house reps you should be seen them around you should be able to get office hours with them and you should be able to go talk to them whether it's about the minimum wage whether it's about the crisis at the border don't let them tell you there's no crisis at the border because there is a crisis at the border last year I use arrested one count one hundred and fifty eight thousand five hundred and eighty one illegal aliens in twenty eighteen sixty six percent of them had criminal convictions twenty one percent of them had pending criminal charges we should be thankful that they're taking these criminals off the street yet our local Minneapolis and Saint Paul mayor if they want to have nothing to do with that you're seeing a little bruh how going on up in Sherburne county Sherman county made over ten million dollars last year from detaining illegal aliens and now they want more ice once more room at this Sherburne county jail this is a big thing folks this is a really big thing yeah and when you vote next time you vote remember the Democrats want Americans to pick up the tab for illegal alien health care to you we can't afford our health insurance premiums but they want us to pick up the tab for illegal aliens it's just shocking is it and that's why I'm so excited for the upcoming debate let's take a quick phone call Mike on the line he might welcome to the show no the fifteen dollar an hour minimum wage business a little deceptive on many Democrats part we're here to help you but want that push them over the limit or what they make so they'll get bounced off of any I don't even know what the heck it's called anymore welfare or whatever yeah and while in all of this government we're here to help you and they make it worse right right but but you know they give me fifteen dollars an hour but then we're gonna bone job your welfare and now then now or were you going to be I know it's just crazy Mike they think they're helping and they're not that's why I'm so excited for the upcoming debates you know the fifteen dollar an hour minimum wage increase is going to be a topic for the presidential candidates next week so you got twenty of them you got twenty of them out there saying they support fifteen dollars an hour if if there is any small business out there you better know the Democrats are as anti small business as they come not only will people at the lower end of the economic spectrum not be they'll they'll be pushed off some of their benefits but at add to that too every up well you know the Democrats will come back in one increase those benefits so they can qualify for it but they'll be fewer jobs for people who want to get out of that higher hi there we want to get out of that lower income bracket it's crazy Mike greasy part of the deal is that you're you're mistaken they know what they're doing they they know they're going to hurt these people and they don't care I know but it sounds so good Mike they sound so compassionate yeah I'd just like you know who was the one that got it what party got rid of Jim crow what party manage created the slaves go on and on and on it was the Republicans not the Democrats but the Democrats Lauda twist every word you put out there and make it sound like it was the best idea they ever yeah you know the the thing about Democrats is they lie and if you think back to the last election Mike do you remember how the Democrats lied and lied and lied again and you know what they lied about they lied about health care and I think that's how they won so many seats in the last election and people believed them that they were the Republicans were gonna shove grandma over the show of grandma over the cliff and take away pre existing conditions and no matter what the debt what the Republicans said the Democrats just kept lying about the Republican so either the Republicans better get a whole lot smarter and a whole lot aggressive we can take some lessons from from president trump for sure because the Democrats are going to play fair and they're gonna keep saying things that sound so good you know whether you're talking about Medicare for all whether you're talking about the minimum wage whether you're talking about education whether you're talking about.
