Across The Threshold (Pastor Jeremy Foster)

"This is Stephen Furniture on the pastor of Elevation Church, and this is our podcast. I wanted to thank you for joining us today. This inspires you open builds. Your fate hopefully gives you perspective to see. God is moving in your life. Enjoy the message. Well. We welcome you today into the into the presence of God. Really shouldn't say that way. It's not like. God's presence came because we started singing God has been with you every moment of every day this week, and this year and I just want to remind you one more time. If. You don't know this already that a true worshipper can worship God anywhere. Anywhere. But Napa. If you're one of these consumer Christians then you can't worship God unless you have the perfect conditions unless you have your coffee. How you like it unless everybody in your life as being nice to you, but one thing we are learning in this season and I think I think I. Speak For so many of us is that we have learned that? God's presence is so much more than goosebumps. At least that's what I'm learning anyway. And just wanted. I wanted to make sure that you know that our our church our church. Family are church, staff and me, and Holly, specifically we are continuing to pray for all of you are connected to this ministry all around the world you know this is. A special weekend in our nation, the United States of America but also this global ministry, and I never want us to just get limited to thinking that God only works in one way, and so that's why I'm so thankful for our FM. We used to call. It extended family. Now it stands for. Doesn't stand for extended anymore stands for everybody because we're all in the in the same situation together. So I just wanted I wanted to welcome you. I hope that things are going well for you. I hope you're having some semblance of a summer. A summer maybe set off a sparkler or something like that I don't know. Put a floating on. Give him a floaty praise. Have you ever had? Have you ever had the flu by Faith Chris? I thought about doing a message one time about floaty faith and I was GONNA come out with Floata's and talk about how sometimes in the in the mail. I'm the see this is. Why didn't I it? Because I can't even get it out without laughing, but I was gonNA talk about sometimes. You have to be willing to look foolish. In order to have faith. And I, thought I preach the whole message with floating on, and not say anything about it, but just talk about how sometimes God God, gives you the grace to float in a situation even when you can't swim even when you can't see the other side. So I know that's been the case for a lot of people this year, but One thing that God gives us. He gives us others. He gives us other people in our lives that can stand with us, comfort US and encourage us, and he gives us his word because the grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of the Lord stands forever. Is One thing that will never expire is one thing that will never go. Stale is one thing that will never lose relevance and I'm so thankful for his word and today I'm thankful that we have a man of God to preach God's word to us today. The Pastor Jeremy Foster. I WanNa tell you a thing or two about him before he comes first of all, he's no stranger to our church. He has stood in this pulpit. Many times ministered the word of God to many of you oh. Yes, he is made you laugh. No doubt but he has been insightful at the same time has any, hasn't he? Not many people can do both at the same time. You can't even take somebody and watch Netflix at the same time. That's how bad you are at multitasking. You can't even follow plotline on the Netflix show while you're texting somebody back, but Jeremy Foster he can make you laugh, and he can cut you wide open and do surgery on your soul. Soul at the same time I've seen him. Do it also the last time he was here, the building was full I walked around the corner today and I said man I feel like the church, split or something. Since the last time you came, but they're really still they're just all over the world. And in fact, the Church has grown over these last four months. Isn't that just like God? So I told Pastor Jeremy Foster. Bring your wife Jennifer get the Charlotte where we're. Has Matt Suit Get on the airplane helicopter torpedo get to Charlotte because the elevation church. Family needs to hear a word from God, so let's put it right now with a chat. Everybody say welcome Pastor Jeremy. The word less thank God. Fred City in Houston Texas. Type so much. Ovation awards right now. Go right there on your power right there and you're carrying your favorite recliner. Magnify the Lord with me man. It feels good to be here and I gotTa tell you pastor Stephen like right now i. know what you're feeling i. know what you're feeling. You're watching this and I could feel it. Feel it right now through the camera, a your collective disappointment. Because you started preaching Pastor Stephen, and then you stop, and you can preach floaty faith right now. Actually while he was talking about floaty faith well I would have a problem. If you wanted to preach floaty faith, they wouldn't be able to find floating big enough for Yo. biceps come on somebody. All right. I honor you and your workout regimen. I eat a why we're big shirts. I'm honored to be here. Man and I'm so glad that each and every one of you are with US tuning in from all over the world. Hey, just in case you don't know man I become a member of the FM now through all of this situation I'm like my wife and I watch every week. We are blessed every week on in fact sometimes. She watches me every week. She watches you whatever. We'll talk about that later aside to come here to get her to watch me I love you babe. Look at me, It is an honor to be with each and every one of you. I know that those of you guys. Watching online, you are already seated, but those of you who here in the room? You could be seated and thank you so much for being here. You and your socially distanced self. You guys look great and so honored to be here I can tell you this. This season has been strange. It's been strange I know it's been strange for each and every one. One of you I know it's been strange for those of you watching all over the world. In fact, the one thing that has brought us all together literally all over the world right now is the strangeness of the Season It's just been weird like we. You can look in China. You can look in Africa. You can look across all of the continents everybody. Everybody feels the strangeness of the Season and. When you're in a strange season cannot sell you. Every season has a soundtrack. If you'll figure out and you guys in the middle of the season said we're not just gonNA walk through this hard place. We're actually going to sing through this place, and you produce an unbelievable album that literally has become the soundtrack of. Of the season it has begin. It's become the score of the struggle and I'm telling you when I first heard. Rattle on I. Think it was Easter weekend you released it. You kicked over the podium. Whatever I mean. I was just like I wished I worked out I pulled a hamstring trying to do a price break. It was weird and then Zeke saying. What would you do when he walks in the room and just lifted the roof off the room, and then obviously graves into gardens, and all of the other blessing. Literally it has been listen. If you're watching right now, can I tell you this right now? Especially in the season that we're in and our world, your struggled needs a soundtrack because the enemy will try to play a tune for you, and if you're not careful, you'll listen to something that God never intended you to listen to cannot tell you this. We're not just going to go through this. We're GONNA grow. Grow through this and we're GONNA. Come out on the other side stronger I wish my Taipei man. I wish somebody type broke through this right now. Because that's what God has called us, so do is so weird man. It's just weird to preach with you. Sit and you realize this is the first time that I've preached at elevation that you've actually been here. Which is which is actually an honor like that? You would trust me to preach when you're not here and now it's just strange because I come here and you're still not preaching. It is what it is. I'm honored to be here. I love you and Holly so much. She had one of the most powerful sermons throughout this whole season I love that it's not just you, but it's her and your family and this inter- and entertain. Come on, let's give him an ovation. Love you guys love the team camera crew, production, same and I know I. Speak for everybody watching right now this watching online. I feel like I feel like preaching. If that's all right, I just feel I rare back throwing down in preaching because I believe that in this season you are on the threshold of a promise now a threshold literally like. Whenever, Jen and I used to flip houses, and we flip houses. I learned something from a contractor time he said. Don't step on the threshold step over the threshold. Because of the threats, sometimes, the threshold is made of wood or especially. If you have a wooden threshold in between rooms in your house, if you step on it enough, you can actually cause it to be loose. And it was a threshold was never designed to be on. It was designed to be stepped over. It was never designed to be stood on one side of it was designed to be walked into a threshold. Threshold denotes the difference between one environment and the next time we preach about that literally. Your brain is designed to win. You walk into. This is so weird now we to explain the science of it. I'm so off my notes right now, but I feel like I'm in the word right now I feel like I'm in somebody's living room literally in your living room right now. Your brain when you walk into a room. You your brain leaves the things that it doesn't need to remember on the outside. The problem with some of us is we're on the wrong side of the threshold and I'm telling you. I WANNA walk through this season. Change I WANNA walk through this season growing. Here's the word for you. You Will Not die in your dilemma God has called you to grow through this thing and you're. You'RE GONNA. Find Destiny through this dilemma. You'RE NOT GONNA die in the middle of it. How? How what are you sprinkle up here? Man Like I'm screaming and spin and this a good thing y'all are like twenty five feet away. Because I had to wear a mask. Not and I'm honored to be here and I believe that God is going to do something great ns, but we stand on the threshold of a promise. And it cannot tell you this right now and this season. Whatever season a life that you're in because I know so many people that are going through so much right now. In fact I was talking to some authorities in the city of Houston Pastor, a church called hope city in Houston Texas I was talking to some of the forties, and they said that they had received more domestic violence calls in the month of April than all of last year. People were walking through pain right now. People are walking through heartache right now but I want you to understand. We have hope on the other side of heartache. We have help all the way through our hurt. We just got to trust. God is able to do it seating abundantly above all we can ask or thing according to the power that's on the inside of us, but you actually have to stir up. What's on the inside of you? Your obedience to God's word. Well either walk you. Out of his favor. How many on the room were raised a? Strict parents reunion register as it's almost everybody. Hey, in fact, just give me a little. Give me a little wave. Don't give me a wave EMOJI. Give me the big motion. Give me the big I. See Right now like I know my mom is crazy. My mom always crazy. She full on like and I love you my I though you're watching because she wash Pastula to I, love you, mom, but come on. Let's be real real. How many y'all had a crazy Mama like she like Dad Dad's was Mama. You never knew Mama's can talk through clenched teeth. You understand every word they're saying. Your buddies like what. She said. I'M GONNA. Die and You keep standing there you going to. We got together my dad. Sorry. Mama love you. My Dad used to say this to me. My Dad used to say if you don't straighten up like we were getting ready to go somewhere else. Dad, ever say something weird. How many of you just in the room? How many Y'all your dad said you better straighten up. Put put it on a chat. If Your Dad said you better straighten up. Put on a judge's Reggie you better straighten up and then my dad would add this and you can add this to. Because somebody like not. Everybody had this but I had this. If you don't straighten up and then he would have and flowers. I don't even know what that means like. If you don't straighten up and fly rights, we're not going to do whatever it was that he had promised. We were going to go to the park or go to check a cheese or whatever we were your behavior. Essentially what he's saying is your behavior. In this season. We'll either walk you into my favor. Favor and the blessing that I had planned for you are keep you where you are until your behavior. Become such so that I can bring you where I have designed for you to go now. Here's what I want you to understand right now. Preach good on a Sunday. Here's what I need to understand. It didn't make me any less of a son. Didn't make me any less of a cell. He didn't kick me out of the House. He loved me right through bad behavior. He loved me right through bad decisions and I love you. Thank you for that, but it speaks so much to our relationship with God. He'll love you through failure. He'll love you mistakes. He'll love you through a hard season, but I want him to do more than just love me I want him to favor me and bless me, and oftentimes my obedience will bring the blessing or hold it back. God has a plan for you in all of this. Don't you think God's all this come? Like, he never has an Aha moment. God never sat down to Oprah's couch and had a ha moment like Ooh. That's one thing God, never done got us never gone. What like I didn't see the he knows and he has a plan through all of it. As is exemplified I promise, I'm GonNa. Get to Texas in Joshua chapter, one before we get there, if is chapter, two verse ten says for we are his workmanship created in Christ Jesus for good works. God's got a good plan for you. He's got a good design for you. It says this which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them. What does that mean that means? God's been messing with your time line. He's been up on your time line. He's been planning all kinds of things, and it's your job to keep walking into the good things that God has created for you to do. He has a good plan, but you have to. You actually have to prepare to follow his plan. I can tell you this when you walk into what God has for you. When you walk into the Authority that God has for you when you do what God has called you to do. It opens up things that you can't open up on your own. I travel a lot and obviously haven't traveled a lot in the last few months. So when you guys call and it was like Hey, can you come up, so yes, please let me just get out of the house and and so here. I am so honored to be here, but a few years ago. I was I was traveling somewhere and I remember I was stand. In the TSA line and I'm just standing there and let's go to preach a conference. And was this, I, was in the line, I was just always a long line. I'm just standing there and I'm just like you know here we go. A long line and I remember seeing one of the TSA agents, and if you're TSA aged couple issue, we love you blue shirt you'll bypass. She's standing there. She was looking hard. She was looking hard at the line and I was like Oh. Man, this is intense and she was like hey. Somebody's and She was like Yo sir. You serious did she was like in the black. And she was like. Yes, you come here. Jose, but I didn't like it I'm like I started arguing within myself. Like what have I done? Am I hold myself like threatening or something like? Somebody else I to hear me pre real purchase. Be Back next week is okay. This is what it is. I'm standing. Right, now come here and people are looking at me like backing up I'm like I ain't got no bombs except he's holy goes bombs. GonNa be dropping at this conference later. Somebody so. How roll up I'm like how I like I'm nervous. What's going on and I get closer and right? When I got like three feet from her whole face changed like she was looking real mean and gruff, her hope they changed got like three feet from she was like pastor. It's so good to see you come on through the. Daughter of the Lord. God Has Blessed You holiday favorites. She got me through the line coming through security I had access of which I did not know I had. Because! I had a relationship that I didn't even know. I had some of us. God is saying Hey, come on, I'm calling you out of darkness into my marvelous life. Don't argue to stay where you are in this season. Let's go where he's called us to go. He's giving you. Says Somebody Oughta type that I have access we saying I have already you have authority that is not sure on his on loan from heaven, and he's covered. You and you can go into places that others can go, and you can show things that others can't show why. Because we have authority. I had a relationship. That even know I had. She knew me. I didn't know her. But, she was calling me somewhere. I wonder if some of US would just start listening to the Voice of God. Do you know where she called me? She called me straight out of the crowd. She called me straight out of the line. She loves to color inside the lines. You just WANNA. Stand in line. You don't want to be noticed and got saying. Hey. I got I gotTa get you notice because I want to do something I want to accelerate you and some of us are going to accelerate through this season while others are sitting, still I want to be one that accelerates the only way you accelerate us respond when God calls, I ain't even preaching you. All right I am I am. Joshua. Chilling into my tax now Joshua chapter one turn in your bibles to Joshua. I love the whole book. The whole book is good Joshua Chapter One now. I want you to understand the context here Joshua chapter one. Moses has just died. He led the people on a wondering journey for forty years. In the desert. The entire generation. Dies, off with Moses is the last one there's only two left is Joshua and Caleb the entire new generation has been stuck on the old stuck semi type stuck. So I'm stuck to my say I'm stuck in here. Somebody else so stuck. You couldn't even say that that's okay. I'm stuck. I'm stuck I'm stuck. They were stuck and Joshua issues. Instructions I feel like preaching this right now. Now Joshua issues instructions that for forty years they'd never heard. They hadn't heard what he's getting. Ready to Thomas Real simple. What told him here's what he said Joshua Chapter One then Joshua issued instructions to the leaders of Israel to tell the people to get ready. Somebody say that get ready semi type that in the chat right now get ready. I want you to get ready from wherever? Wherever you are in the world. Get ready because we are on the threshold of a promise, he says get ready to cross the Jordan River in three days. He tells them three things that I just can't even preach about, but as powerful he says in three days we will go across. We will conquer, and we will live in the land which God has given us notice God had. had, already given them the land, but they still had some things across. They still have some things to conquer, and they still had to establish living. Some of us just wanted all handed to us, and that's not really how God works. Sometimes we. We won't appreciate what we didn't have to fight for. God knows that's some of us. Listen someone you were wondering. Why am I fighting you? Go there everything, go through, because some of you are better in a battle, and when you're in a battle, you pray and when you're in a battle, you ignite your faith, and you stir up the gift that's on the inside of you. Tells Them Hey. Get Ready, Get Ready. He's saying he saying essentially I'm going to do something. New God loves to do new things he loves to do new things. Read revelation chapter, twenty one verse five a couple of reasons why I love this versus scripture. How fired up and there's something on you sprinkle something up. Here passes Steve Us. He sprinkled. Preach all over this place right here and it's been a minute since I've preached with. A decent amount of people in the room. There's like what forty thirty people in here that. You typically I'm pre to hope city I'm preaching with like six people. Screaming my head off. Feel God. I'm actually get some heavy. Man's come on some. Revelations Twenty one so I can't even keep up with the chat. I love y'All. Make me happy revelation twenty, one five, one seated on the throne, said behold I make all things new. Denny said write this down. For. These words are faithful and true I love this for two reasons one. Because it, rhymes. And it sounds awesome. John The revelator wrote it little John. The revelator road behold i. make all things new. Okay never mind so. Write this down for these words, a faithful and true. Thank you I. Hear you laughing over there. I'll see you okay all right. Some of these folks are like. What are you talking about Google? Don't Google John. Okay let's just stick with the second reason I love, it is because it's the last book and last chapter in the last book and God saying Hey you know all that stuff. I did I'm going to do something new. All that stuff that I've done and look. How you did that if he did it before, I think this House Sang Assam. That said he can do it again I've seen you move. You move a mountain and I believe that you can do it again, but here's what I want you to understand. He's not always going to do it the same way. He's going to do it new because he loves. New Things here. Have you ever studied? You guys ever studied. The first miracle recorded that Jesus did. Has she been on? You've studied I've heard preach on it before you way smarter than me series. Not Fooling. That's not like self-deprecation. You're like when I hear you preach. I hope Church doesn't listen to you because I'm like I'm afraid. And I have I changed it up a little bit. Dumb it down, but I I wish I wasn't so honest. But but but I took guys like you to help me understand the water into wine, because if you if you really study. Just cannot tell you like. How felt about in the beginning like? Kind of. Bad, but it's kind of a dumb miracle like. I, know the church people. You'll have a lot of church. Jersey people if you're offended, just listened. Okay, but but no. No, no think about it like. Though like what was he doing? Like Jesus goes to a wedding with this mom, because apparently he hangs out with his mom and he's at this wedding. He hasn't done any miracles yet. He's with his mom and his mom gets all freaked out because they run out of of wine and she's like Jesus. Jesus Jesus Jesus he's like Mama. What are you praying or what? What are you want like Jesus? You have no idea they have run out of wine. Like it's not that big of a deal like if you study and studied, it is not that big the biggest thing well. There's a couple of big things number one. It's just an embarrassment to the groom's family. Because they were supposed to provide the wine for the wedding, and the wedding lasted several days, and they just didn't plan well enough for the crowd that they had the worst thing that could happen. According to Jewish law is the bride's family could sue the groom's family. That's probably not going to happen. It's just an embarrassing moment and she comes to Jesus and Jesus. And, Jesus looked CETERA woman. I. Let me. Tell you the difference between Mary, the mother of Jesus and Paula, the mother of Jeremy Because. If I had been the son of God and I've been like woman, she like. Hold Up Little Sun. Let me. Tell you something right now. Who you call a woman father God. You better get your boy I'm GonNa kill him. You'll have to raise him twice. Play what you Jesus. That's. I love you. You know you watch. I love you. Then Jesus she. She does seem respond when he says woman. My time has not come yet sheet Azeem response. He's like okay, Jesus, she goes over and she tells some service. She says you see him whatever he tells you to do. You do whatever he tells you to do. And that like okay, and then Jesus goes, and he gets a ceremonial washing costs for cleansing, and he says fill these, and he says bring it to the Lord of the fees. Feast, the governor, the fees to give you gotTa know that was a weird job, fielded up with water and bring the water to the governor of the guys like. and. He does that and it's water into wine. The governors like you say the Best Salah and it's unbelievable, but it's really still just kind of like. I guess water to wine. It's not that big of a deal as like the lady who's driving down the interstate, and she had a big bottle of wine in the frost issues driving down and state trooper pulled over 'cause. She's kind of wavering a little bit. He's like I. Use weaving she's. Would you pull me over? Weaving all over the place he's like what's that there in your hands? She's like Oh. This is just a bottle of water. And he said well let me see that, and he takes it out, and he smells it, and he says smells like wow, he pours it out, says ma'am. I believe. This is why she said Jesus did it again. Bar that's that's not even part of my sermon. Let me give it. A real bridge will be back next week got come on. Come on, let's get serious. Come on, guys. Come on, stop it in the liquid quit. Let's be serious. But if you really dig down and you. Look at what Jesus did. You can't overlook the vessels. Because Jesus was the miracle. And he used people to help produce the miracle. Look at the vessels, if you and I were God, we probably would have never. I know I wouldn't have got some of the dirtiest pots in the room to use to turn water into wine. He got the ceremonial cleansing. Lots and theologians disagree and argue over what they were used for, but at the very least they were used to wash camps. Theologians believe that we're used to wash feeding and head, but way you look. Look at it. That ain't the pot that you want to be drinking out of. It's not the pot that you would have chosen and Jesus said Hey I want the dirty ones. GimMe the ones that are messed up. Give me the ones that nobody else would choose. And he gives us his entire purpose in his first recorded miracle. That I can take things that are broken and make them beautiful because that's what he does. He makes all things new what he does. He loves. New Mercy's new parts new life hold things. Pass away, behold. All things have become new. Wrought read Psalm Ninety six in one singer new song to the Lord. Let the whole Earth seen to the Lord. Sing a new song, not love singing. How many? How many on the chat just hold your hand up you? Don't put your hand on, like here's what I want you to do. I want you to like. Put the law. Emoji that has the like the little thing. Come out just a little voices like I want you to only put that if you can sing, but that if you can sing, remember some of your friends. They chat right now, and they're watching because some I'll try it out for elevations worship. And, you shouldn't have God bless you. I love because somebody all K sing. It's just not you gives you like. My mom is saying. We love you and you are. We like we all almost everybody likes to sing right? We all liked them whether you're a shower, singer or singers like we like to sing, and in this season man I've been seeing I. Don't know why pass receiving. I went back to some of the old songs by the way rattle just rattle is like a perfect fusion of of progressive. Rock and eighties hair metal. I mean it was made me want to kick something over in my rockface. I I literally did that. On instagram, I won't even show Y'all, but I got crazy out through. French, fries all over the truck. Don't listen to route a while. You're driving dangerous to other people but I like I like singing. I like I like to say and you like songs through their songs buried in old songs that if I started singing a song, you would be able to sing back. We're fixing to sing right now. Halfway. You did so much better. Kristen anybody out here with the excessive has received, but she got it, but we know like Sweetie you care Lon. Good. Abba looks good. And, that's the club version, so we know where you guys have been an for you. But we like those old songs. I like the old Song Sometimes I. Don't WanNA learn all the new songs because I like the old song, says they remind me where I was. They remind me of a different time and some of us. We love the old song so much that we're trying to walk into a new season singing, an old song and God's saying Hey I need to change your mindset. I need to rearrange the way that you're thinking. I need you to start decreasing and declaring what I'm going to do not just what I've done. Why because God's changing everything in this season? Don't you feel it? Can't you see it? Out could we miss this I? Don't know how people can walk through this season. And not be changed. Did you realize there are people who are going to come out on the other side of this four or five months, and they're actually going to be worse off than what they were when we went through it because they're not holding onto the hope that we have in our heavenly creator, who said I make all things new? We've got to in this season. Come on a preaching to the church right now. You've got you gotTA. Hold on. cosies up to something. Him May not look like it. There may be a fight in the middle of this. This is why Josh was talking to. The children of Israel is talking to the Hebrew children because they had walked food captivity. And they got stuck in the mentality. And when they got radically delivered from hundreds of years of slavery, I mean and it was epic the way God delivered them. I, mean the plagues. They, walked across on dry ground. They saw incredible things, but for some reason. They got comfortable in a place that they weren't called to. Can I tell you change is inevitable, but progress is optional. And we have to decide. We have to decide whether we're going to follow listen. We have to decide whether we're going to follow God into promise whether we're just going to stay in provisions. Because for forty years, he provided. Got Got God God loves us so much. He will provide right where you are. Even if you don't go where he's called you to go, he'll provide for you right there. But I don't WanNa live under his provision. I WANNA walk into his promise. I WANNA. Go boldly into the place that God has called me to go, and yeah, there might be giants there and yeah. It might be hard, but God equipped me to do things that I couldn't do on my own. I can't rely on my own streak. I have to have the yield my weakness to him. And when I am weak. Then I'm strong. They turned. If you look at the maps in the back of the Bible, most theologians believe they turn what? Should have been eleven to thirteen fourteen day journey into a forty year way of life. Here's why because they couldn't see. The promise? Some of us are just accepting whatever we can. See. And because we're in a situation where we can't. See away out whether it's your marriage, whether it's your family, or whether it's who turmoil and strife and depression and fear and anxiety all around you just grabbing whatever you can see a lot, a lot of kids I'm blessed with a lot of kids, and and when we go on road trips I have a lot of. Two sons. They're the caboose. They came on in and we're just grateful. Because those girls, they can make a trip long I'm just telling you right now I. Love You Babe I. Love You so much, but man they just they all have to use the restroom at different times, and when we're on a road trip, I don't know about y'all how many dudes and a lot of ladies here, too, but how many? How many y'all? Whenever you know you're going on a road trip like I look at Google. I look at allocate waste, and if I if I decide them, look apple maps I'll look at that, too, but I trust Google and waste I. See how long the trip is GonNa, take me and then I'll try to break a land speed record getting there. Okay, because that's what I do and I. I, don't know why I like. Crown Myself I'm like I did it. We beat the record and then I had daughters. I'm like I'll never be another record ever again ever in my life because we all had to stop at different times, and we were on this little road trip, and the Tom Eight year old shoes, probably three or four, and we stopped at this gas station and Jennifer's like just just just running around inside, just run out some of the energy cook, so I took her inside and I was like college go. Go to restroom. She was like now that I had to go to the restroom. What she was saying is in like thirty or forty minutes I'll have you pull over again, so we're running around the gas. They should, and as we leave the gas station I noticed. She had something pastor. In her hand. The she did not have. When we went in. And I didn't bring in to buy or anything. I just brought her in there to around. And why look down all help Jeez right now? The spirit of shoplifting his daughter. And I was upset and then I got real upset when I realize what was the she is, so she is. She is still potted meat. Potted meat like I mean. If you like potted meat, that's fine. You can put I like potted meat, but that's a little embarrassing. Because I was upset I was like look. If you look, don't you ever shoplift? Get, don't you evidence and if you do get a stickers or get something good man, get can break me off some of that. Don't get me. You got potted meat, not because she likes potted meat because it was the only thing she could reach when she was holding hands with the one who had the ability and the authority to give her anything the she could ask or think all she was doing was using what she could see I? Wonder how many of us in this season. God is waiting to give you a blessing, but he's waiting on you to have sport. He's waiting on to be open for us, but you're just trying to satisfy yourself with whatever's available. I'm GONNA give you. Three things before are closed down. We'll give you three things that are going to help you. Step across this threshold from provisions into the promise and the first thing that I want you to write down if you're taking notes on what you to write this down. This won't be easy. This won't be easy and then what? You calm when she put, but it'll be good. Won't be easy. Garden Call US too easy. I love your preaching pastor because it's not easy. You don't just tickle our ears. You challenge us a told you this. You've challenged through this season. You've helped pastor pastors through the season and we're grateful for that, and that's not me appear just pumping you up. I'm telling you the truth, and there's so many people that are watching. You blessed, because because you don't just let us sit, challenge us. It won't be easy put. It'll be good. Nothing good was ever easy. God challenges us to go after it. Got To want WanNa do what you've called me to. have. You ever come home hungry like like you got home and you real hungry because you forgot to stop and get something to eat and you're like. I! Don't want to get back out I'll just see whatever's in the Pantry, and then you realize that nobody in your life Baas groceries ever. And go in there, but you don't want to get out, so you just grounds around I'm add so I never can just snack on one thing. I'm like stacking awesome pretzels as some still potato chips and. Coca some Halloween Candy, and you pop some popcorn and Barnard and eight that anyway and before too long you find yourself fool, but not fulfilled. Because you wanted what was easy, not what was good? And some of US want a hot pocket blessing when God only specializes in Crock pot anointing, and if your weight and say God I'm going to trust you. I'M GONNA. Fight through this. I'M GONNA. Struggle through this I'm must struggle with faith in this season, but I'm gonNA. Keep moving forward I'M GONNA deal with Maddow in this season and I'm going to keep pushing forward. Yeah, it looks. Looks bleak. Don't look like anything. Good is happening right now, but I'm GONNA. Trust God is still in control. I'm prophesying that somebody right now. God is still in control. God is still able got still on the throne type that right now God is still on the throne as a declarative, not to anybody else puts remind yourself God is still in charge. God is still on the throne. Yar country may be an challenge. Might be a challenge. But the last time I said I'm not just a citizen of a country I'm a citizen of Kingdom and King Jesus is still on the throne, and he's still doing what he's always done, and he's doing new things in you and in me but I've got to declare it. Not Wait for somebody else to declare it over. I've been declaring it over you I've got an entire prayer team praying for you right now today. They're praying for you in this moment there praying God. Help them to see that those that are with them are greater than those against them, but at some point I've got declare myself. I've got to see it myself. Sweating up here fired up. Hope y'all fired up. Second thing. Second thing number one. This won't be easy, but it'll be good number two. You can't stay here. You can't stay here. You can't stay where you are. Please don't stay where you are. Please don't say in the mindset that you were an please. Please don't say in the sin that you were in. Some of you don't need to stay in the relationship that you're in. Just talking to somebody right there like Dang. Hello how? You can't you can't stay here? And if you're not careful, you'll get so distracted by something. That you'll stay somewhere too long. When God's saying, I'm ready to move on and you're saying. I'm just waiting on God God's GonNa Nana Knob, and waiting on you along on just waiting on the door to open, and when the word all the time says, behold I stand at the door and knock. He's knocking on your door. You've gotTA. Stop being distracted and opened the door and not be distracted by everything. That's going on around. You look at what's happening on the inside of you. Know on the here in Charlotte. You'll have traffic in Houston. We have traffic. We got literally countries from all over the World Watch and now and one of the things that is just unique to all of us. We all have. All deal with traffic. We all we deal with bad in in Houston. Right, out in front of our churches, right out front of our church is the Katy freeway, and it's the largest freeway system in the world as twenty six lanes wide, and it's it's over million people go through a day and it's just crazy i. mean just crazy. How much traffic and I have been stuck before on that? Thank you, have you ever? Ever, driven over just you just go over the edge. You're just having a good day. You crest over the hill, and then you just see all of traffic and you were having a good day and all the sudden. You're like God. Why Right now traffic start getting frustrated? Getting aggravated should be listening to a podcast pastor station because help you get to. But he's frustrated, used aggravated, and then you see blue lights up ahead, and then you feel Kinda bad for being mad. Lord Help Him God. Just give them strength because you're Christian and then as you get closer, you realize. Chunks. Did it. It ain't even in your lane. It's the opposite side of the interstate, but air body in front of you is slow and down looking around rubbernecking wonder pets, anybody I know, and you're like Gao, and the you get up there and use loading. Wonder if that's anybody. And we get mad at other people never underestimate your ability to be distracted by things that don't matter. Not even in your lane. Somebody type. Stay in my lane. Not stay in your lane. Stay in my lane because you ain't talking to somebody else. If you're talking to yourself, we're good at judging other people. You better stay in your life. You better stay in your lane. When's the last time you said I need to stay in my lane? And keep going. We're God is called me to go because I can't stay where I am right now. David was a man who understood this yet a singular focus. Love Psalm Twenty seven to four one thing have I desired of the Lord. That will seek after one thing one thing one thing somebody type it one thing. What's your one thing you ought to ought to search your heart and say what's my one thing. What's my thing? That's my one thing you'll know because this is the thing that makes you angry or it's the thing that frustrates. Frustrates you thing that pushes you to action? Please just let your one thing. Be the desire the one thing if I desired of the Lord, and that will seek after that I may dwell in the House of the Lord all the days of my life to behold the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple. What is he saying? He saying it's not about me. I'm a king, and it's not about my kingdom. How in charge and it's not worth about what I'm in charge of authority. Miss not about my authority. I yield to you, God let the one thing be whatever you want it to be oh. God help us as the church right now to yield so well to you in this season. The we truly pray let your kingdom come. Let your will be done on earth as it is in heaven because he has a will. And he has a plan. Number three. Play Church music back there for me I, see you have their. twinkle those avarice that be three come on, somebody I should've had y'all play in the whole time, but I never finished preaching OUGHTA. Just a price break that out of shout at all, over the spot, probably fell off the stage number three. I want you to remember this and somebody needs to hear this. Remember. You have a promise. Remember not you have a promise. Remember. You have a promise because you knew one time that you had a promise. You, you understood at one point that you had a promise you. You knew one day I have a promise, but somewhere along the line. You've forgotten about the promise somewhere along the line. We've been distracted from the promise, and you need to remember that no matter where you are no matter what you've done, no matter how bad it's been no matter how great the struggle remember, you have a promise. A Love Deuteronomy. Chapter Four. Verse Twenty. Nine one of my favorite verses description. For so many reasons. But if from there by say they're. Type it in the chat there. If there, there's now a thousand. There's going up there from their their if from there. You seek the Lord your God. You will find him. If you seek him with all your heart, and with all your so. If from there where they're. Where's there? Wherever you are? There but you don't understand pain. That I've been to you. Don't understand the heartache. You don't understand the ended I'm stuck in. You. Understand the mentality. You understand that old song that I've been seeing you understand how many times I've tried and failed and trout. And Phil and it's a cycle in my life right there from dare. Dare wherever you're there is. there. If you'll seek him, you'll find them. I'm talking to somebody right now. You've been watching. You've been filled with doubt and depression and fear and anxiety, and now it's leaned over into despair, and you feel hopeless, even from fair. You have a holy God who has promised you will seek me. You will find me I will not let you be alone. I will not let you be your yourself. I will be with you even to the end. Work. there. From there. Even when you walk into a place where God has called you to go, and it's such a struggle. It's such a hard place. Joshua had don't wait. He had already been there. And then he had to go back out. You ever been into the promised, but because of the people that you were around you able to actually receive the promise you had to get back out and wait on the people that are with you to walk into the promise. As a hard place to be some of US need to make sure that we're around the right people so that when we walk into the promise, we can actually receive it and don't have to wait a long time, but God bless Joshua and Caleb. Because it didn't give up. calebs crazy. He's an old dog. He's like I'm in my Haiti's me my sword. Give him a mountain. I know there's giants. That's my mountain, a loved mentality. We some gray hit at people. Is All wolves just. Ready to fight hail. Let's go. In the. Mark but I did that happened that really happened. There was a guy standing right here. He just sat down. I'm sorry I lost literally lost him right then. He was like I'm with you. You barked about. Joshua Man Joshua looks at people because this is the day that he's been waiting on for a long time. Why because he's already been there? Make sure you find somebody who's already been there. Make sure you get around somebody who's already been there. Who are you following in this season right now? Make sure it's somebody who's been there. Make sure it's somebody who saying all right. Come on. We'll take you where God is. Call the Sigo it and listen if anybody ever promises you easy. They're not in the word. It's not going to be easy Jesus never said, take up your couch and follow me. He said, take up your cross and follow me. It's going to be hard, but it's going to be good, because God has called us and he's given the promise. Joshua said hey tomorrow three days, said prepare yourself because in three days. We're going to cross the river. We're GONNA Cocker. And we're GONNA, live. And once you have to understand. Is the Jordan River and I'll have time to exit all of that and get into details, but the Jordan river at flood stage was little over one hundred and eighty feet wide. In normal season. It's about four miles per hour. In flood season. It's about ten miles per hour. Why is it that God always calls us to move? In the hardest seasons. God, we wait till it's not flood season. Can't we wait until everything settles down? No, no, no, no, no. Because this is when God shows off. 'cause, this is when there's no way you can get the glory only God can get the glory and the season like this whenever we see not just revival. Awakening happened why? Because God saying now now now, let's go. Let's go. It doesn't look. I'll be with you now. Know now the first thing that he told them that what they're gonNA. Do is probably one of the hardest things we're going to cross. The Jordan awesome appreciate that Joshua let's go to be great where we start building the boats now we need to floaty fate. The Pastor, Stephen or actually some blow. These have been invented yet. How are we going to get across? This river had looked at it. Joshua! Ridiculous because faith usually. Involves ridiculous things. If you want faith, you're going to have to embrace impossibility. They go hand in hand. It's not an oxymoron in possible faith, it sounds like jumbo shrimp or act naturally. I'm not going to tell you I told you. So those are all oxymorons. Impossible faith is not. because. You have to have faith to deal with the impossible. Penny says. Here's what you're. GonNa do. You gotta take the priests. and. They're going to carry the anointing. and. They're going to step in the water I. Say Yeah, but I've tried to cross before, and here's the problem. The reason why you got swept up in the river is because you tried to cross the before you didn't allow worship to go I. You didn't you didn't allow God to go before you? You'd listen listen. God be for us. Who can be against us? If another way, you could read that if God before us if I put him before me, there's nowhere that he leads me that I can't go, so if God is for us, who can be against us? Stepping, the water step in the water step in the water, worship goes I. I don't understand it I'll worship in the midst of the storm, how worship in the midst of pain hot praise in the midst of trials and tribulations in priests. Weird, it's weird. It's a weird thing. They hold the art. And when they still not before they step, and they prayed and declared and wipe their foreheads with their handke's instead right now in the name of Hey seuss Christo. Pan, this river and I. Tell it to stop. It's not what they did. And did that. Stopped. And it stopped. Somebody type that they stopped. And it stopped. You're waiting on a stop and God's waiting on a step at some point. I've got to realize he's ready to do a miracle. That's waiting on me and the only thing that stronger than the will of God. Is the choice that he gives you? To abide by the word of God, because he won't go against his word, he wouldn't have stopped it. He wouldn't have stopped it if they had in this stuff. He wouldn't have stopped it. But because they stabbed. He stopped. And it was the beginning. Of An incredible series of miracles. Still talked about today amongst God's people and it started. With a step what step is got asking you to take? Right now, you know what it is I. Don't know what it is. Maybe it's a step of absolute surrender. Saying God that I cannot do this without you I trust you Lord. I don't know what to do, but I'm going to trust. You I don't know where to go, but I'm going to trust you. My marriage is falling apart. My finances are destroyed. I'm sick and my body I'm hopeless. I'm dealing with despair, doubt and depression. What do you do when you're dealing with all of that? You worship, and step you worship, and step you worship and step and trust that God will stop whatever God wants to stop because he has a plan. Don't just live in the. Plus walk into the plummets. Want to pray for you right now. Wherever you are in the world I'm praying for you right now got up pray for each and every person watching Jan. every person tuned in got up. Pray for the person who's watching live in this moment. Who watched the whole thing? A preview of the people that have to known in the last thirty seconds got a to the person. That's watching this. Listen to this. This six months from now I pray that right now God you would begin to encircle them and rapture them with your love, and your mercy and your Christ and let them know that it is not over. You will not die in your dilemma. Your dilemma will define your destiny if you will step into whatever it is, that's creating the fear and the anxiety, and the worry and the Dow if you'll just. First step is Scott a step of faith, a step of faith trust. The you've got us a right now in Jesus name.

Can I share with you guys? Is it? Okay. If I'm just honest good because I was going to be anyway, when pastors even call me, it was like can you come? Yes. Yes. What an honor? But on the inside secretly. I was like. I need more time like six months to go to cross fit. Of ready man aids and donuts and. Fell better. My Manley outfit today put my boots on put my plaid shirt on. I just caught a look at myself. Look like the brawny paper towel guy. So whatever do my best up here, man.

So don't build a house where got said build a tent make sure that your mobile and ready to do what God is call John preach up in here on a Sunday. I want to thank God for you guys. Because we're looking to you find somebody that you can look too because God will use them, and they will help you look through to God is taking you to someone think pastor Stephen Hollywood more time. Give them a great big hand. What an amazing honor. This week. And we're going to jump in Matthew chapter eleven and I had a complete moment of freak out yesterday because I've been on a little spring break vacation have five kids it feels like eighty seven. But it's only five and they range in ages from seventeen all the way down to two and so have three girls seventeen sixteen and six and two boys three and two. So it's all hormones and diapers in the house. It is what it is. So I came prepared. But I was I hadn't had a chance to listen to the podcast because like most of you. I'm also podcast listener listed about even every week. And and yesterday in preparation final prep for the weekend. Art had what I was gonna say they called me on March fifth and said, hey, we want you to preach. Pastor Steven preached a message on March third called invisible prisons by remember invisible, prisons powerhouse and use this exact same text. And so yesterday somebody just said, oh, that's exactly what I said yesterday in the hotel room. I was like all right. I'm fired up on fired. I'm ready to go. So I'm playing pastor Stephen. And I listen to pastor Stephen Tom and a half, you know, you can turn it up like one and a half spe- superfast while preaching, and I'm like, yeah. And as preaching I slowed down. I was like, no, no, no, no. No. No, no, no, no. This is present the same thing that I'm gonna preach and like typically preach his notes. And now he's preaching mine. And this is weird. And I'm like. Freaked out. And then I felt like the Lord spoke to me and said, no, I need to make sure that they get it. Because there's too many people still locked in an invisible prison of expectation, and I'm trying to help you you got to get around the right people. You got to expect gone to amazing things because the enemy will constantly challenge. You, and if you wanna know, why the enemies challenge you every acre of kingdom territory will be contested. But last time I checked we serve a God who has crater. He's able to do exceeding abundantly up of all we can ask. Thank according to the power. That's at work where in us. So where does the enemy try to build the prisons in us not around us in us in our minds and in our hearts and in our relationships through our expectations. So we end up with wrong expectations. That's exactly where we pick up. Matthew chapter eleven John the Baptist. I two says he was in prison in he heard about all the things the messiah was doing. So everybody says so for those of you who are educated. That's a coordinating conjunction. It means what you're getting ready to hear is based on what you just heard. He heard about what Christ was doing. What was Jesus doing? He was healing. The sick blind eyes were being open deaf ears being unstop, John the Baptist. Here's this. So he questions Jesus identity. He says are you the messiah we've been looking for are you the messiah we've been expecting? Or should we keep looking for someone else? Isn't it weird? When Jesus is actions calls, you doubt, his often to city. John expecting? We know that it was out of line with what Jesus was doing. And Jesus was doing everything that was prophesied. So who's wrong here? John jesus. I must say it. Hey sues. Sousse, why? Okay, come on body. You ever expected something, and it just didn't turn out the way you wanted it to turn out like thought it was going to be and it's gone off. And you're like that was not awesome. A love being able to pass in Houston, Texas. Come from a family of Cowboys. Highschool sport was boring road goals. Saddlebronc courses broke my ankle. My risk. My shoulder piece. My back toward ligaments in my jaw my left leg off ribs fingers. Tailbone tailbone not a cool break on no way. You can make that cool. You know what I mean? And so so I love I love whole cowboy life and Houston has the world's largest indoor rodeo, it's called the Houston livestock show and rodeo and for twenty one nights about seventy eight thousand people gather in NRG stadium where the Texans play and they watched some of the greatest Cowboys cowgirls in the world compete and also at the end of that rodeo segment, they push a stage out into the middle of the arena, and they put on some of the best concerts, and you can watch every this year, they have Cardi B and George strait. So like you can watch. Wherever you want to see for me is short straight. I'm just going to say for me. But so we love going out there. The problem is that the good seats are really expensive like up to three or four hundred bucks and the scalpers get those seats and sell them for three grand ninety how you boy roles. So I by the nineteen dollars ticket and not just sit wherever I won't. Because the Lord said I could have wherever I go, and I'm like I'm going into c three right here. Very embarrassing for my wife, especially when somebody walks down the aisle, and you could tell that you're in their seat. I'm like girl, look straight ahead right now in Jesus name. And the reason the reason those shoot seats are so expensive the front row seats are so expensive is because they take those six rows of people right after the rodeo when the clear the floor and push stage out, and they bring them out down on the rodeo floor, and they get to watch the concert from right there in front of that stage. And if you know, this is going to happen, then, you know, they're six rows of seats that are going to be open, and you can position yourself at the top of the stairs and walk into a blessing. That has been vacated by somebody you got to align yourself last year alignment determines assignment. You got a line your sign even preaching. I'm telling the story. All right. So so we were at the front we were at the front of the line. And it gets intense, though, some elbows pastor people where do you pass elevation church North Carolina. Stephen and grew a beard immediately. Sorry, pastor, Stephen. I love you guys. That'll be my last time here. Let's make it awesome. So that that that night? Heard of the worship leader Keith urban. He was leading worship that night. Because there's a new win Boone lack of never own Asaba key breathe in deeper ever done. And it sure feels good finally way out and who my wife watching the service. That's why I keep saying why don't you saw this for you, girl, friend? Scoring points up on the stage elevate again my last time here guys, let's make it fun. Right. And my wife loves Keith urban. And so a slum elbows. We ended up on the front row and Keith comes out hairless armed his guitar put his little hair around and he jumps off the stage and he's playing and he's walking away from us. And I'm like Holy Spirit. Help them to come this way. And here's the Holy Spirit comes out the Holy Spirit. But it started coming to any gate right in front of us. I got a picture of Keith McLeod right in front of us. Look at this right here. He's right. That's your boy took that picture. He comes right up. And at this moment, he hands the microphone over to his security, and he starts coming towards us. And at that point, my wife, lost her mind. She's dead eye Monday. He won't he should have put a ring on. But when he when he goes Argo when he comes when he comes across heat uncomfortable higher. He comes wars your boy, some wife hands me her phone. She's like. Like, and I got a video of Keith Arben right up in my grill. I brought my video y'all see my video roll my video. Tried to get on the videotape here allegation. They're like, no. We relieve she was like let me see the video. And there you go. You're a moron. I don't know what happened. She said. I do right. When he got over closer. You're like. Security had to move him away. Did not turn out the way I expected to turn out now. It's funny when we're talking about a concert, but it ain't funny when we're talking about your marriage is not funny when we're talking about what's going on in your life, and your finances your kids, and you're sitting here acting like you've got it all together. But you expected everything to be different than what it is. And you're saying I thought I was going to be further along than this thought God was gonna come through. What happens when God's zig zag, and you're out here kind of left on your own, and you've been declared faith, and it doesn't work out the way that you want it to work out. What happens when your expectations for God? The do something for you are off and you've expected to God you've expected to do something. He never said he would do. Wasn't. Here's what I want. You to understand? God may not always live up to your expectations. But he will always live up to his word if he said he would never leave. You'll never leave. If you said he would never forsake. He'll never forsake. You. But you gotta make sure your expectations. Right. Some of us believe also we'll say, he'll never leave you. He'll never forsake you. And then we just throw some of the theology. And there you'll never put on you anything more than you can bear wrong. Now that was scheduling what it is. But it's out of context he said, I'll never allow you'd be tempted beyond what you're able to bear. But I'll provide a way of temptation, not life. Listen, it's appointed undermanned wants to die. You can't bear that look at the apostle Paul. They cut his head off care that God will never allow you to have a life that makes him on necessary at some point. You just have to learn to trust him. God. Whatever happens. I just trust you. But it's hard. I was raised in church. How many raising church all camps regime raised church come on look at that. Well, I'm gonna test you right now. We'll find out if you raise a real church. You boy was raised in real church. We never had chairs she helped. We have we we were way more sanctified than that. We had pews. And we had chart so long you boy could get a two hour nap onto they're still get out and get two good hours of word come on. We've seen the song was when I was a kid. I I'm gonna test your charging us right now. A check check if you an OG over gospel. I'm gonna check. All right. So we'll sing the first part. And if you know it you're seeing the rest of it. Okay. Ready? He's an all Tom God. All sixty eight people are saying. Rushed y'all. We're going to give you an ultra call in a minute. You say. Here is an all time God and the church say, yes. We're gonna try it again. And you say, he's an all Tom. Doll white people. You got some guests. No, no. You gotta hold years. He. Yeah. Who you gotta you gotta go. You gotta bring it out. Okay. We'll give you another chance. He didn't old time guy. Somebody else even tricking. There's a lady over there doing the Mariah. Carey handles like you go girl you can't be on the worship team. But you share look. We would say this. He may not come when you won't him too. But it be there right on town. He's an old time. God. Yes. He. Well, here's my question is I got over if he's an time God whose time has gone. Because he. And there are times when you think he was gonna come through. And you think he was going to do what you wanted him to do. And he doesn't do what you thought he was going to do. And it creates doubt. And now, I'm a man of God. A love Jesus. But I'm doubting him. Just to be very direct and very open with you doubted. Whether God was gonna come through, I've doubted whether he was even real or not. Now that might disqualify is probably not good for job security. Because I'm a pastor. But it's the truth. And it's an invisible prison that you better deal with or it'll tear you up from the inside out. Says he's able to exceeding abundantly above all that we ask according to the power that's at work within. And that's where the prison gets built. And we can look at somebody on the outside and everything's fine. But on the inside be crumbling, and that's where you are this weekend where you're watching whatever campus at your where you watching I want you to understand this word is for you. Because you just joined the very elite club. If you if you're doubting God look no further than job now job. His time is the greatest believer of his day. And we talk about the faith of job though. He slay me yet. We'll trust yet price. But nobody talks about job chapter fourteen verse nineteen here's what he said as waters where away the stones and is floods wash away the soil of the earth. So you oh Lord destroy the hope of man. Thanks job, so positive nobody's making destroy the hope of man, bracelets. You get them on the way out destroy the hope of man, plus you. Chris is not back. They're working on you destroy the hope of he's not working on this new song hell of Asian worship destroy the hope of man, it's great get it. Put it so real moment. See sometimes we act like these guys were just bastions of faith and there were moments when they were just going through it. Jeremiah powerhouse man of God. But he says this Jeremiah fifteen eight why is my pain perpetual, in my wound and curable which fuses to be healed without the all together unto me and this wall to fail. Why did you read it in that stupid accent? Because I won't God to note that was Jeremiah. Jeremy we different people did say that. That's me. I read it in context. I tried to find a way out the whole chapter. He's calling God a liar. We'll be a liar. Hey, man, easy member. God. If you're mad at God, you might as well tell him right because he already knows it ain't like you're like me and God ain't talking right now. He knows all things. Right. You don't get you. Don't get more powerful than Elijah was when Elijah prayed stuff happen. He prayed that it wouldn't rain. It didn't rain for three years. And at the end of three years, he said, we're gonna have a showdown Throwdown with the prophets of veil that the people have got have been worshiping. Why don't you bring your profits to the mouth, and I'll come to the mountain you build an altar? I'll build an altar. We'll pray to our gods. Whichever got answers by fire. That's the one true. God that's not a good way to handle inter office arguments. Straight Old Testament. And they build an altar and they pray to their God. And they scream to their God. If you don't believe that the bible has a sense of humor, you need to read this story because the lodge is hilarious. He taunts them. He says did you schedule it with your God? Maybe he's on vacation spring break. He's gone with the kids. I mean, like just funny then he goes on. He taunts them even further. He says, hey scream louder napi, your God's a heavy sleeper. And you just really gotta wake him up. I can't wait to meet a lodge. He's a straight thug. That's funny, dude. It's so disrespectful areas. And then they're like, all right. We're done all day. They were done. It's your turn. It goes much on your shirt, I can go I can go. He builds an altar. He puts a sacrifice on he digs a trench around. He finds water from somewhere had in three years. He pours water over until as such rates all through that saturates stones it feels the trench. And then he prays one paragraph prayer and fire falls from heaven and laps up all of the altar all of the water, and then he turns and he looks at the profits of bills. How you like me now? Drops the mind that didn't have. But it's something like that. And then they slay all the prophets of bail. He turns any looks at the king. And he says you'd better run because I hear the sound of rain, then he goes back, and he gets down in the dirt berries faces in the sense any praise until it rains, and then he out runs the kings chariot on the way down the mountain. This powerhouse man of God. I mean, I'm talking awesome. And then he gets a letter from the Queen. Paraphrase Elijah, comma. Don't love what you did to my profits. Exclamation point means ice emoji. I'm gonna do it back to you. Come going to kill you till you're dead ellipses. Sincerely, the Queen hashtag sleigh all day hashtag you've been run stucco. It's not just like, but on the new international journey versus talking about think about this. He just prayed down fire from heaven. I mean, if I got I'll be like little girl, you better watch out. I mean, if you could can you imagine being able to pray down fire from heaven. So glad God didn't give me that gift that have been all kinds of people barked up junior high school dudes walking around with no our browse. But like he playing. So you would think he would respond powerful. But yet we find in I kings chapter nineteen births three lodge. It was afraid and fled for his life. Man of faith is responding in fear matter, how strong you've been the enemy will find your weakness. He went to shibo town Judah to be left to starve there. Then he went on alone by alone. And this is why we continually talk about e groups and small groups, and you gotta get into group. And if you're watching online find the people around you connect in the online community connected. Your camp is getting a group getting getting a group because you were not designed to do life alone. It's the first thing that God said was not good. He looked at Adam. And he said it's not good for man to be alone. The first thing that Jesus did whenever he started. His earthly ministry was started group there were twelve of and one of in his group was a devil. So everybody in your group ain't gonna be good. But it's okay plan. Don't laugh at stuff like that. Don't go to her group. You never know who's in the. But he's alone. You don't you're not designed to go through the desert alone. But he's alone travels all day, and he sat down under solitary broom treaty prayed that he might die. Remember, this is a man of powerful prayers. But now he's praying of how he said take my life. I'm no better than my ancestors have already died. This is a man who's now dealing with comparison comparison kill you. Remember, he's a man of prayer, but the content of his purse changed and now he's asking God. The God who draw fire down the God who brought rain down. He's asking the God, whom he serves killin. This is a prophet of God, dealing with suicidal depression when lost a lot of times talk about this. But here's the beautiful thing about this. He doesn't bring it to everybody else. He brings it to God. He's frustrated. He's doing Zayed's. He's going through frustration and depression, and he doesn't know what to do. But he's still keeps his eyes focused on God. Even his prayers are wrong. They're going to the right place. So make certain that even if your prayers aren't even powerful prayers not strong just keep talking to God. And at some point he'll. Now, I studied this. This man has been threatened most of his life. There's only one difference between this threat and the other threats and this one this this this threat comes from a lady.

So I lived in Winston Salem for thirteen years, shutout Winston, Salem campus. And I was there and and about fifteen but the age of fifteen we had small church youth group thirty forty kids in group, and we had a youth party one night. And and after the party, the girls had a slumber party and guys had not slumber party because you don't want to. I mean, high myself party. We had we had we had a hang out. And so so the goal of the girl's slumber party is hair and make up. Let's talk about boys. It's gonna be fun. I think gonna go ahead and the goal of the guys hang out get to the girl's slumber boring. And as the son of the pastor and a natural leader. I felt it was my God given responsibility to lead this effort like is my job to lead these young men to where we are supposed to go. So I'm pretty direct. I went straight to the lady in charge of the girls. And I was like what if we come over tonight and scare the girls. I literally thought she's going to be like, you lost your mind little boy. But she was like that is a great idea. I'll eat the garage door and the door unlocked, and you guys come in have them around the fire guys scared. It'd be great. And I was like you've lost your mind. I can't believe we let you watch children. But yes, we're in. We went to WalMart.

Wasn't that scary? And the girls are like lane. They had no idea it was a setup and we crept in. We had all the hand motions. And when we jumped out on three we jumped out, collectively, it was awesome. Yeah. And they're like great this something different happened. Because I forgot to tell you my father passed very diverse church. When white girls are scared. They're like, oh my God Decky. Oh god. Oh, Sabrina Bethany. God help us. I'm going into circle. I don't know what to circle I'm going to circle down gonna son co help us. When African American girls are scared. It's different. Girl, named K K San. True story. I jumped. Yeah.

Do you ought to grab the sort of the Lord and starts swinging say get the behind me God whose grey to sit down not even went on. The. Thought it was. Oh, that was gonna go totally different. It did not. Sometimes that's exactly what happens to us. Got it all planned out blows up in your face. This is a very unique story in our text Matthew chapter eleven because you don't get more proof than John, Bob. This had that Jesus says he is he'll get more proof. John. The Baptist is a cousin of Jesus you? Go back. Go back and listen on the podcast, pastor, even sermon. Invisible prisons, you need to hear it. It's a much better. Exa ex-general sermon than this one. Go back in here. And he and he goes through the expectation of John had powerhouse man of God. He baptize Jesus when Jesus comes out of the water. Here's here's what happens the Holy Spirit like a dove, and the voice of the father says this is my beloved son in whom on, well, please you don't get more proof than John had that Jesus is who he says he is yet in Matthew chapter eleven we find John squarely questioning the identity of Jesus. And John the Baptist was in prison. And that's the problem. See what he was in the waters of baptism powerhouse awesome. When I'm in charge mazing moment. Two hours later two weeks later, two years later, I'm going through pain. I'm going through heartache I don't understand why I'm dealing with the situation. And now all of a sudden I'm locked in invisible prison. Write this down prison. Perspective will always calls you to doubt your destiny see on the outside of the prison filled with faith, but all of a sudden everything falls apart in my life. And I'm scared to death that God's not going to do what he said he was going to do. And I don't know what prison you're in. Maybe it's it's your marriage, and you thought the marriage was going to go different than than this. You guys were so in love, and it was working perfectly. And now your whole world is blown up. Maybe you're looking at your life, and you're in your thirties forties. And you're saying this is not where I thought I would be thought it'd be further along than this. Maybe you're in your fifties. You're dealing with the midlife crisis. You're kinda wondering what's happening. I thought it was going to be perfect. And it's not your kids responded. Wildly finances. Have crumbled the business didn't do what you thought it was going to do or maybe it did. And you're not able to handle the success. Maybe you were hurt by somebody. Maybe you were hurt by somebody in church. Well, let me just tell you. This view heard by somebody in church and your backing, but you're kind of keeping your distance. I don't know if anybody's ever told you this. But I'm sorry. If they've never said, it let me say it. I'm sorry for the hurt and the pain that you were caused, but please don't judge the heart of Jesus based on somebody who was supposed to represent him. Who did not? He loves you. And. Maybe it's just your own sin and your own mistakes and your failures and you're sitting here going. Yeah. I understand what you're saying. And I appreciate it. But you don't understand the secret sin that is in my life and the habitual sin. That's in my life and just can't seem to start to make away. And there's no way that God could forgive me. Because keep making mistakes. Here's what I want you to know your God loves you. And every time you make a mistake bible says he makes mercy because this mercy endures forever and every morning. His mercies are new great kids. I want you to understand. And if you don't know this your faith is more important than your failure. God is more interested in your future than he is in your failure. Because he can overcome your failures long as you continue to trust him Simon. Peter's powerhouse man of God Jesus selection. What a great guy. He's wild some Peter Kertu cut your ear off and commit faithfulness. Jesus. All at the same time. We would not even higher him here at elevation. He could not be a campus. Pastor. But he's he's one Jesus top guys, and he's always walking around with swagger like he's got it together. Like he'd like Jesus on your rotter when all these guys leave you who's going to be here. Jesus says. Luke chapter twenty to thirty four and the Lord said Simon Simon indeed Satan has asked for you to sift you as wait. But I have prayed for you. Now, I want you to notice his prayer Jesus. Prays very non religious pre said, I have prayed for you that your faith should not fail. That's weird. That's not the kind of prayer that we would pray. We would prey Simon Peter. I have prayed for the vow will not fail and continue to be an embarrassment to the family of God. But he doesn't pray that in fact, Jesus Jesus actually tells him when he's going to fail and how many times he's gonna fail. You're going to deny me three times before the end of the day. But when you have returned to me, strengthen your brethren you keep writing yourself out of the story and God keeps writing you back in. What does he say? Your failure does not define your future. If you'll continue to put it in my hands college for purpose. And you're paying will not negate it trust me. But it's hard. It's hard to trust him because we do without don't we? Young father brings his son to Jesus he actually brings them to the cycles. I he says can you pray for my son? Can you pray for my son? He's going through all kinds of stuff, and there's vexed, and there's all kinds of stuff police price and the disciples are like, yes, we'll him and nothing happens when they pray. Hate when that happens. So he brings him to Jesus kind of last resort brings him to Jesus says, can you son and Jesus says Mark chapter nine if you can believe hall things are possible to him who believes and immediately the father of the child, very, honestly cries out and says with tears Lord, I believe, but help my on Billy because I got believe got under leafing there in the Lord looks at him and says oh. You're gonna walk up in here. You you're gonna tell me that you don't believe go to the back of the line, build your faith, and then come back up here in stop and bearing everybody as not what got us make sure that you don't just trust. What you hear read it for yourself? Jesus straightway hills. The boy you mean in spite of unbeliev-. Because that's how much he loves you. He's looking for a way to save you not for a way to kill you. He's looking for a way to redeem you not for a way to curse you. The Lord is good and his mercy endures forever. So here's what I want you to know if you taking notes write this down, even when you doubt, God still shows up. Even when I'm an invisible prison. God can show up in the midst of the invisible prison. John chapter twenty first nineteen says that Sunday even the disciples were meeting behind locked doors. Locked doors see their expectation after the death of barrel, and the resurrection was not what Jesus said Jesus said I'm going to rise again. But nobody was at the tomb when he did except for the guards you and kind of thing that we would have stronger faith than that. Right. Like, a tomb tailgate party that had the BG's their thing is they stay on Jesus come walking out. Was in guys real be back next weekend? So let's just keep focused. But that's not what happens Jesus comes out of the tomb, and they are hiding in the room scared as they're locked in for fear of the Jews. They're afraid that same thing is going to happen to them that happened to Jesus and Jesus appears in the midst of them, suddenly any standing there, and he says peace be unto you, which is awesome. Because it doesn't say that he used the door or he used a window. It says the doors were locked and suddenly boom, Jesus appears which tells me no matter what invisible prison that you are in when you get out. He can always get in we serve a God who can reach into deep dark black hole. Grab a door. Knob that doesn't exist and open the door. That's not there and make a way where there is no way. You just gotta trust. Not even the awesome part of the story. The awesome part of the story happens verse twenty four now Thomas called the twin we've all heard doubting Thomas. Most of us have if you knew to church he's called doubting Thomas. This is where he gets the moniker. He's called the twin. He's one of the twelve. So he's decide. And he was not with them when Jesus came and the other disciples therefore said to him we've seen the Lord and it was. Oh, some. And Thomas get sick of it. Do you ever miss the party? Like, you find out about the party on Instagram? You're like oh Kuku cocoa cocoa. You guys had a party. Okay. Like, unlike make sure, you know, unlike. Awesome service elevations pasture Stephen up here preaching walking in his leather jacket. Supercooled finish shoes. Does cola shoes? I've got. Breaching? Somebody tells you, bro. You you missed it. It was on the hazards hazardous Bridget. He levitated. It was about. Sorry. And you're like I wasn't there. Hush. Stop talking. I had to work. This is where Thomas's he says actually little scary. He gets sick of it. And he says this unless I see his hands the print of the nails and put my finger into his side. I will not be leave. Now, we have a conundrum because we have a disciple who's declare strong believer declaring his unbelievable. Putting the caveat on his faith. So what is Jesus going to do about that? I love it because we find out earth's twenty six and after eight days eight days after eight days is the Cyprus were again inside and Thomas was with them. It is important that when you are in a lack of faith than you were dealing with invisible. Prisons, you stay around strong believers because sometimes your faith is not enough. But the faith of people around you will bring a powerful thing in sight of you. And he's with the other believers and Jesus came boom, the doors were shut and he stood in the miss it. He said peace be to you. Then it turns the Thomas. I love this part. Is thomas. Put your finger here. And here don't be unbelieving believing and Thomas cries out, my Lord, and my God, here's the awesome barred about this look at me. Look at me. Here's the awesome part about this. He had already come for everybody else. And the one guy who didn't have enough faith at all. Who would put a caveat on his faith Jesus shows up for him because that's his purpose? He's the one who will leave the ninety nine and he will go for the one loss and out of all the thousands of people that I'm preaching to this weekend. He's reaching for one. We can't thousands. He counts by ones, and you know, who you are Chipper us. Joe? San with across all of our campus. Nineteen eighties in the country of Armenia. There was an earthquake killed twenty five thousand people immediately millions left homeless in that morning. A young father had dropped his elementary age son off. As school and said, the things that fathers say, I love you. I'll see you this afternoon, and he left a mile down the road. He watched as the road rippled in front of his car building swayed side by side, the tear that only father feel he turned his car around precariously made his way back to the location of the school and to his shock. It was flat rock upon rock. Grieving lost in horrific painful grief. You leaves the car running? He leaves the door open, and he crawls across the rocks and the rubble to the approximate location of the sons class, and he begins to take. People. Come and say, listen, it's futile. There's no way anybody could survive that he's leave me alone. He digs for hours upon hours upon hours, twelve hours fifteen hours twenty four hours finally people realize he simply digging his grief away. So that later on he can live with himself because he'd tried. But in the thirty six hour, daddy, hears a noise and he screams for help. And they come in the help him remove a rock unearthing, a cavern and inside of that cavern is thirteen students and a teacher and one of the students is sun. And he said daddy kept telling them, you would come. And here's what I've come to elevate church to tell you. That's a human story about a human daddy. My bible says if you being able no advocate good gifts to your children. How much does your heavenly father give good gifts to you? I don't know what doubt depression and. Zaidi is covering you and visible prison. Yorio put out though, you got a holy God releasing you dig it rock rock saying hang on. I'm coming. Father. Thank you right now, pursuing your one and only son to die. Life snuffed out on the cruel cross. He went to the cross, but he didn't stay there. He went to the tomb, but he didn't stay there your rose alive and victorious so that we can live three. So in this moment we declare when I can't get out. You can get in. So I invite you in dramatic invisible prison the visible power. God. Thank you for setting me free. Can we give him an ovation of worship that only? A key is worth the right now. Lift up.

And that's is. When I saw ambassador Bolton Stiffen I was sitting behind him in the chair and I saw him sit back slightly like this and then he looked up to the clock on basically said? Well it's been really great to see you. I'm afraid I've got another another meeting. Bolton left the room and he'll says Salman then reiterated the condition Asian. What had to happen for that White House meeting to take place? He said that he had an agreement with chief-of-staff Mulvaney in return for investigations This meeting would get scheduled. She went to tell Bolton his reaction he had some very specific instruction for me. I had to go to the lawyers to John. Eisenberg a senior counsel for the National Security Council to basically say utilizing Bergen busted a bulletin. Told me that I am not part of the this. Whatever drenthe deal mulvaney in sunland cooking up? Republicans tried to attack his credibility Dr Hill. You have provided me. Probably the greatest piece of evidence evidence. That's before us to illustrate the problem with your safe but hill pushed back We're here just to provide what we know what we've heard. I understand that for a many members this may be hearsay. I've talked about things I heard with. My own is. ABC's Mary Bruce David Holmes diplomat at the. US Embassy in Ukraine recounted a phone phone conversation. He overheard between John and the President for Foreign Service Officer David Holmes there was no mistaking president. Trump's voice on July twenty sixth phone call with embassador. Gordon wouldn't sunland homes testified. It was loud and recognizable. I've heard president trump. Ask so he's going to do the investigation Vassar Song. Lynn replied that. He's going to do it. Adding the president's Alinsky will do anything. Ask them to do home. said he later learned. There was a demand. Presidents Alinsky commit to investigate a political rival of president trump's during a cable news interview Aaron Katersky. ABC News earlier in the week. Lawmakers heard from two diplomats who were on that July twenty th phone call with the president and Ukraine's president the one that it led to the impeachment probe one of them Jennifer Williams was a national security aide to the vice president. I found that July twenty fifth phone call unusual because in contrast to other the presidential calls I had observed it involved discussion of what appeared to be a domestic political matter. And then Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vin men. Who was the National Security Council's Ukraine expert and has been a lightning rod for criticism from the president's allies? He told lawmakers he reported what he heard on the call right away or is concerned by the call what I heard was inappropriate. Republicans call their own witnesses this week. Who admitted they didn't think the contents of that July twenty fifth phone call were appropriate but also said they didn't think it it was illegal? Here's the president's former. US on void. Ukraine Kurt Volker I did not know of any linkage between the hold on security assistance and Ukraine pursuing doing investigations. No one had ever said that to me but as compelling as the witnesses testimony was this week Republicans on the House. Intelligence Committee spent their time. I am casting doubt on what the witnesses heard. And whether or not the president's alleged activities were illegal or tied to the hundreds of millions of dollars in military aid to Ukraine Ukraine when questioning Lieutenant Colonel Republicans like Jim Jordan of Ohio suggested that vitamin leaked information to the press. So you never leaked information. I never did never would that. Is that is preposterous. That I would do that. The tension continued with House. Intelligence Committee ranking Republican. Devin nunes serving. You testified in your deposition that you did not know the whistle blower Ranking member exile. Lieutenant Colonel Lieutenant Colonel Women. Republicans begins also criticized Democrats on the committee especially Chairman Adam Schiff for keeping the identity of the whistle blower confidential ranking member. New News does the full extent of the Democrats prior higher coordination with the whistle blower. And who else did the whistle blower coordinate. This effort with Veneman said he didn't know the identity of the whistle blower whose report about a July twenty fifth phone calls spark the impeachment inquiry when ambassador Gordon Sunland was being questioned. Republicans pounced and said he couldn't decisively conclude that Ukraine military gary aid was tied to the investigation of the Biden's. Here's John Getting grilled by Republican congressman. Michael Turner of Ohio really have no testimony today. The ties president trump trump to a scheme to withhold aid from Ukraine in exchange for these investigations. Other than my own presumption which is nothing sunlen. Admitting to Democratic Council Daniel Goldman it was a conclusion he reached based on his work with Giuliani and other administration officials you understood the Ukrainians received achieved. No credible explanation is right. I certainly didn't couldn't give them one. So this kind of two plus two equals four conclusion inclusion that you reached pretty much the only logical conclusion to you that given all of these factors that the aid was also a part of this quid pro quo yup but ranking member. Nunez called that funny math are not going to hear about what actually happened with the foreign aid. What does that? I made it a lot easier for you to testify and said a guessing seeing and doing little funny math problems up here. Two plus two equals four. It's great for all the viewers to hear that wouldn't it be easier if you just knew knew exactly why the foreign aid wasn't given. It would have been easier to testify if I had a totality of the record sauna and said he was banned from existing documents related to the impeachment inquiry by the State Department Committee. Chairman Adam Schiff likened it to obstruction. We can see why Secretary Pompeo and president trump have made such a concerted and across the board effort to to obstruct this investigation and this impeachment inquiry. And I will just say this they do so at their own peril one in Maine. GOP argument if the military aid was eventually released and no investigation took place. There's no impeachable activity. The President committed congressman. Jim Jordan of Ohio who sat on the House Intelligence Committee for the impeachment proceedings relate a conversation ambassador son Liu said he had with the president to make his case. The president was as is clear as he could be. I want nothing I want. No quid pro quo alinsky to do what he campaigned on. I want him to do what he ran on. Committee Chairman Schiff had a different take republican colleagues. All they seem to be the upset about with this is not that. The president sought an investigation of his political rival not that he withheld White House meeting and four hundred million dollars in aid. We all passing passing bipartisan basis to pressure Ukraine to do those investigations. Their objection is he got caught. Republicans also argued about the president's intentions and said he was trying to promote moat reports. That Ukraine had a hand meddling in the two thousand sixteen election congressman. Jim Jordan explains we all know that Russia meddle in the election. But that's not to say Ukraine ain't didn't try to influence the election. That's the words. We have used all along but Fiona Hill warning lawmakers. It's a theory the Russians. Want them to believe what we're seeing in here as a result of all of these narratives as this is exactly what the Russian government was hoping for if seed misinformation. They see doubt in the end committee. Chairman Adam Schiff compared the proceedings to the Watergate scandal. No quid pro quo. What do you want from cry? No no quid pro quo. This is the I'm not a crook defense. You say and I guess that's the end of it ranking member. New News questioned the procedure. Republican members transmit our request two convenient minority day of hearings. Today you a-block key witnesses that we have requested from testifying in this. Partisan impeachment inquiry. quiry shift ended the hearing slamming Republicans for their arguments. And reminding them about what the late Congressman Elijah Cummings want said in the words of migrate colleague. We are better the that adjourn and the president reacting to it all week he told reporters the proceedings were a sham. It's a disgrace embarrassment to our God country. Nancy Pelosi has done a terrible job as speaker. This never better speaker. That's done so little and she's totally incompetent and Egypt Egypt. He stands up and he tells lies all day long and the president told Fox News. Friday doesn't think there's any reason for him to worry. I think it's very hard for them to impeach. You have absolutely nothing. The House Intelligence Committee now expect to draft a report from there. It goes to another committee. Well they tell us that we're done number over one congressman. Andy Biggs says the intelligence committee when I'll send their impeachment report to the House Judiciary Committee on which he sits likely after Thanksgiving. Then it's almost impossible to tell what chairman chairman Jerry Nadler's GonNa do that committee. He may he may say well. Let's bring a few witnesses. I don't think he's GonNa go there because the last thing in the world that he wants his brings a witness is to basically been open the door for us bring witnesses and he doesn't want to do the pigs.

Tom Brittney Is More Than Just Another Dashing Vicar

"I'm Jay Sleigh COBB and you're listening to ABC Apiece Studio Good News. There's a new vicar in the sleepy bucolic hamlet of grantchester and it's not Leonard Finch wills is bidding farewell to the city center. He's going to be the new vicar of gun chester much to Leonard Chagrin will Davenport the young and handsome village newcomer has been installed as the new vicar and his arrival to the Green Cambridge share meadows isn't embraced by every member of the well-run vicarage. Mrs Chapman on William Davenport well speaking sent me to introduce myself is the perspective new victory of Grantchester did he now. It's a real pleasure. I've had so much about you well. You can tell the ARCHDEACON GEICO positions already been taken. Thank you very much for actor. Tom Brittany stepping into the ranks of a popular series. After three beloved seasons was a hefty challenge but the famously tight-knit cast and crew of grantchester welcomed him with open arms arms look at any scene where is looking lovingly me. There is a metal stick with a sausage right behind my head now. He's he's. He's the biggest David I've ever worked with. My God Britney offers a glimpse into his burgeoning career a preview of will still still unfolding journey in the village and his own secret tricks for winning over the most hard to please member of the GRANTCHESTER vicarage Dickens <music> and this week. We are joined by Grantchester Star. Tom Brittany welcome. Thank you we meet. We'll Davenport in the first episode of the season in the script is described as quote note late twenties affable energetic a strong sense of right and wrong. What were your initial impressions of the character where it was quite good because when I was listening for normally when you're Disney for role you get maybe like a line line of some of that to describe the character but when I went for the third round daisy coon the rights of written like three page character biography which gave pretty much every facet of this character ultimately what will was was all that and instantly connected to the the his drive for good and his is passionate his strong opinions? I love that but also the the darkness in him. The darkness drives him as there was something that I connected to in that and just yeah really really wanting to pay the character more than anything else in my life. How familiar were you with grantchester before getting cast nautile? I knew of our new. How much of institution was how well loved? It was by by people I've seen the first episode years ago when it came out with with my mom and I never cooked series off towards and then when I got the role I made a purposeful effort to not watch it so the I I was coming at it with fresh eyes and and not accidentally replicating James Did because I'm a big fan of James Aims No. I didn't want to watch go because I knew how daunting was anyway to step into his shoes and actually watching the first couple episodes of the first time I saw him play Sydney and I was like I've got a big job. He's he's a dime good Vika. You said you wanted this part more than anything. What was your reaction? When you were cast grind on the bus to sit go see my girlfriend in town and I cried on the bus because I spent the last few weeks weeks after I'd Matt Robson Green at the chemistry read Spanish from the first tape I I really really wanted and I didn't realize in the first type actually the character was the new lead? I thought it was it was the villain I thought because it was <music> saying that the interrogation seen I thought that the character was the villain of the thing now until you anything not about the thing that's really is. Who gave you the knife chaplain? I'm not going to tell you that no. I'm not gonNa tell you that either today confessed to the murderer Charles Todd should probably stop you there. I'm not going to tell you anything at any point about any of it so I didn't realize it was taken him Gyms Norton and then when I found out I was I oh yeah I mean I wanted to anyway but <hes> yeah especially then and I mean Robeson I just kept calling my agent every single day and this guy plays of you hide anything and then there was good news it was it was looking good and then it kind of you you know you never know costing can be such a long process and then you have two to three weeks later. I found out as one and I thought they might terrible mistake. I said the wrong name. What was the first thing that you shot on grantchester? It was the first thing might you or your introduced to mcadoo when I when I made a yeah exactly when I meet Leonard Lemme LemMe Sydney that was my fest and set which was a good date you know to sometimes when you feel me film known chronologically and I could have been sucked into one of the heaviest scenes which is fine I used to that it was really nice to have that ease in and have the first day onset was my first day in the shower that was that was a nice way of doing that. <hes> what sort of preparation did you do. In terms of playing the part of a young modern nineteen fifties vicar. Did you talk to any vickers or parish priests who might might have been around at the time I did do fair research a main little sort of research book about what was the cut the historical context in the fifties and and and the life of a vicar I I did go to check name me an Anglican Chechen disorder Zia Simon but it it didn't work it wasn't it wasn't the vibe that it would have been religion is very different to how it was in the fifties. The role of a vicar is very different in the nineteen fifties and as now when you researching Vika it's Vicki's have their backup of going like Oh. Oh everyone thinks we just went one day of the week but I'll show you we work every day and that would seem to be like a great that will Vikas had the people didn't understand that they would much more to their role in life and that was something that I I never realized in an especially like I said in the fifties in a village to victories more than just even religious advice would pov everyone's life people went to them for every sort of problem during this handover. Did James offer you any advice he did. He didn't three pieces device. He says have fun. Just you know you're part of the family. Now at keep your phone in your pocket of your of your costumes and then we can say when you have only Anna said when was pretend like you haven't heard ropes and drain stories one hundred three times when he tells them and that one was the most useful piece of advice will is new to grantchester. He's an outsider. I mean did it help with your transition that the shows characters are themselves wary of will that he yes to earn their trust as Sydney's replacement yeah we 'cause he made it sort of life. Imitating are was the the nervous new act on the block in Williston. The novas eager to please new victim blocking freezes during my first sermon and the most of the background autism saw villages from grantchester and they're you know you can see when I when I first cameras set their own kind of looking in this way on the new boy and Customer Cup go big shoes the film they went doing they. They meant well. They went trying to get in my head but they would. There was an anticipation but that helps me in my performance of sort of being I've got I've got to be a damn good victim. GonNa be good actor in this in this moment and and so it was nice to be out to replicate nothin Ya if Sydney Chambers is whiskey and Jazz Will Davenport is rock and roll motorcycles boxing and cake do you see wills representing different sort of vicar than Sidney coming from a different generation totally think our age differences isn't massive in terms of the age but it means a great deal in the generation that we all he fought in the war. I didn't and affected his relationship with Jordi that they both shed that common ground and I didn't I represent the use this sort of Americanized use of the late fifties with Elvis coming over broken Rolin the leather jacket and James Dean kind of things it also informs the way that I think and I think we'll idealism comes from. I don't know maybe that American dream kind of thing the movies that he seems to for that and rather than the morbid time of the war of death in this is coming out of that now. I think we'll does represent that <hes> we have a platform to say something one thing we have a boat why not rocket both will in Sydney used the pulpit as their platform for change does will embody the sense of change in the air of Nineteen fifty-six. Yeah I think so I think you going into the sixties which was when allow people became more political and Grantchester has that thing in the first episode the political aspect with racism and and I we finally agrarian that's wonderful talking about consciousness shying away from from social issues that were around at the time I think the use is starting to become more aware of that. Maybe they were and I do think will although he's in the church which you know is traditionally has a way of rules. I don't think will likes that I think he wants religion to be better and not to be in a UH stuffy old saying you know can be used for professional. Hatred has to be forced for good. I mean he's already trying to make it more accessible on. Mrs ceus shocked by the fact that he says call me will that he's sort of pouring his own t I mean it seems he's like he wants to be the approachable vicar. Mrs Bennet has that line of <hes> of Zia Communist because it's just you don't have people that is that's not how the Church Wax. That's not an that liberal. That's not as alien to these people in this villages that is always go one way and we'll comes in disrupts that in last week's episode <hes> Leather Clad Will Davenport barrels down a Cambridgeshire country lane on his motorcycle without a helmet. How integral is that moment into understanding? Ending his character the sense of freedom on the road I love doing that scene because it was just him just on his blank driving into this village where he's always wanted to be in this this road and he's just living the dream as far as he as far as he thinks before he gets there and realize that not other people on board with his Dream Yeah. Did you have any experience driving motorcycles before that no I did not and I never in my life though I get on the back of one but the produces forced me to Thailand now I love being able to it's a wonderful thing is being at a do skills and grantchester. I think I met four or five different skills. I never thought I had to pick up the I had to do for the character which is great and it was gotta do but most of my writing was one look I was. I was petrified when I go on the back of the bike for the first time and I fell off a few times. It was because you've you're in anything goes. Powerful metal base between your legs is trying to throw you off in a way Oy and I'm very scared death in Jersey myself I don't I'm not ashamed to say I wish I had that part. I mean that was a bit crazy and didn't cab I do and so it would took a while to get over the hurdle but then once did I loved it. I I really after I've been on the back back in you know this is a couple shots wear. I'm you know it's not business. Obviously stop man 'cause they have to. They have to protect the the actor in on you WanNa give them credit for that but once I done a few scenes on the on the bike I studied loving and when I go back on the actual motorbike I was probably going a little fos initiative but yeah so I really didn't enjoy it. There's a rivalry between will and Leonard particularly over the position of Vicar grantchester why does will offer to step aside and let Leonard have the position initially initially because I think it goes against his as much as he wants to job more than anything it would go against his morals. You can see he can see in Leonard everything he says is true. Then it is ready for it has good will wouldn't want to take that away from someone else have against who he is and he could could be a Vika somewhere else. I mean grantchester would be lovely but if it's not his time as nice time will is brought an Italian Espresso machine with him. He tries to win Mississippi and Leonard over with a Cappuccino which is too bitter <hes> for Leonard and and ends up on his own with Dickens Dickinson's. That smell made you Cappuccino Coupla Italian coffee with wisdom milk strictly authentic but I like it. I don't type trust that forum Mark Matisse from don't take it personally. She's like that with everyone cheese most we part of the family. It's it's nice to have you realize to better. I gave him suga if you like no. Is there a sense at this point that he sort of on the outside looking in differently. I think the fact that they're saying who showed shows any interest in him as dickens is very isolating he's gone from yet right writing and said the village on this bike couldn't be happier to being met with with nothing but you know I think this is cold reception and that wasn't how he sore happening. He wanted people to come in and be like this new Vikrant he goes. Please call me well and everyone embrace him and that's not how it's worked and I think that breaks his heart a little bit but he's he's on his own that he can't share it with anyone number one on the call sheet of course Dickens Diva D._v._d.. Have Grantchester I did your classmates offer you any pointers or or warnings about working with the the always professional Dickens Test Pay Jones suplies Mrs Mrs Chapman that she said Oh dickens lovely one tank Dickens one take Dick and she couldn't be more wrong. I Love Dogs with all of my heart. I never speaking of a doctorate. Dickens has an ego problem and a sausage addiction fiction <hes>. Let's look any scene where Dickens is looking lovingly me. There is a metal stick with a sausage right behind my head so don't before now he's he's. He's the biggest deavere when my God at the start at this week's episode we do come to that opening image. <hes> the grease or images definitely brought to life as will works on his motorcycle looking as the script indicates <hes> quote sexiest Hell <hes> which might be the only time anyone has said that if a vicar vicar is will the embodiment of modernity coming into this picturesque English village to shake things up yeah I guess he is like I said you know he represents that the the new use both at the end of the fifties and and and then he wants things to change the traditions have to China's one him and Georgie kind of clash because Jody's views and Mrs Chapman's and a lot of people in their villages views are old fashioned they they must they must change because since moving forward society is moving forward and if if you can't move with it'll be left behind on the note of sexiest hell. How comfortably do you wear the mantle of sex symbol? Yeah you get Austin a bit because oversee James's. He is sexy floppy had scheduled man it. Was You know he's is James Norton and having to step into that go she like the you you get that kind of nerves that you're not going to live up to him and it's not bound not really it's. It's about the performance in the new hope but obviously share that these people do like to look at guess looking vicar so I'm sure at one point I will have my James Norton topless boats in at some point in play that up <hes> <hes> I it's not something that comes naturally to me. I look I played a play rose. Fortunately sometimes you know then being attractive is written as the character thing that makes it harder. I think sometimes because I'm with you have insecurities by the way you look and so forth is it's odd to have your looks be a focus in that way. There's a great moment when will puts on his vestments and looks at himself in the mirror with an easy smile <hes>. I've never been more certain of anything in my whole life. He says during his institution service why is he so sure of his vocation and his faith because I think he was searching for something that took him out of the place that he was in the likely had and religion seemed to fill that whole completely <hes> like I said to still parts of religion that he is he's not completely blinded by this thing to the point of not being to see the flaws in himself for the floors in what he represents but religion religion and the cooling you know I that was something as one in the research that I that I read. I didn't realize that the the cooling was a real thing in that sense that a lot of the VIC. Is You know I was reading. The research talked about they just one day found this cooling and they had to follow it. My calling was wanting to be an actor. That was my I never was more sure of anything else in my life and I don't know what that was at a new. What one day made me feel it? That's what I had to do but yeah. It's the same for him. Before this next X. Question a brief word from our sponsors Viking Vikings New Ocean fleet is designed designed with all Verandah state rooms for just nine hundred thirty like minded guests by river and by see more at Viking cruises dot com. I love the dynamic between will end Robson Greens Security Keating <hes> it does seem almost paternal in a way that father son dynamic. What do you make of of their relationship now? I'm glad you picked up on it because it was something that we didn't realize until later if something I've seen around under the lights are episodes we kind of analyzed what was going on in the way that we were working and it was like yeah. You'll like the father I you know. I wish I'd had an away. I'm like the sunny wishes he had him him in Sydney didn't even more on a level maybe because they experience have yeah because of their experience in the war and when they interacted and I and I love our relationship of we were the head in the heart of different different times and we bounce itself each other in that way that sometimes I go with got emotional things that Jordi will go with the logical way and they don't always match up and but that's useful to be able to look at that I am the same as a person. Sometimes my emotions can get better of man an lose my head in in that one having someone Jordi for well I was is useful. I think they work off each other any well and how easy working relationship was that with Robson draw. The chemistry that you hopefully say is exactly what it is. He's he's genuinely. I never thought my life O._B.. Article robeson green like a close friend and he is missing terribly when I'm not filming and he made going to work if you can call with everyday just a joy will is reluctant to get to get dragged into Giorgis world world. I know how this works jody the real men in the next thing. I know we done of the police station doing your job instead of mine I needed him sitting in my office is a young boy covered in someone. Else's blood is refusing using to speak Shuli. There's no greater need the night which are words to live by a what is it about this case that changes his mind about assisting Jordi. There is <hes> it's it's it's the element of Adam Adam the child that's it really he would never have got involved if it went for that and you see it when when Jodi tells him about this child covered in blood coming in the U. C.. We'll go when I I have to I half day. But because of his own passed that resonates in him and he has he has to see this case through because if he doesn't then he'll never ever forgive himself if it doesn't you know and when when it starts to win the case starts to go against I thought it was it breaks him slightly as as a person and yet he does he does he does put his duties as vicar assign unfortunately which he would never think that he would do but he's cooling his taking him here. Cake is so important to will that it appears almost symbolic in this episode <hes> it's an emblem of friendship and goodwill <hes> while the cops keep shouting at atom. It's will who brings him cake. <hes> what is this moment reveal about will's personality. I love that you're able to analyze that to put the cake down as an object of course it is. I never thought of it like that. I did realize that I probably talked about K.. Quite a bit and I wonder what is <hes> thing was with that but I guess it's just that yeah that connection. He wants to have with everyone making adding everyone round. Please call me will making them cake. He wants to connect with people. We just have to have some cake in his pocket and probably knows that it would make a child feel a lot happier in that stressful situation. I think that he wants to make people feel better. Cake helps cake always <hes> we'll realize that Adam is deaf and begins to sign to him. <hes> we later learned that will learn to assigned from a girl who will refuses to name <hes>. Is there a tragic love story in his past there there are many there are many he's he's had a pretty tragic post in general and I think with women as as well and that's led him to choose a life of celibacy. I don't think he wants to drag any women or anyone into his into his life or his mess until until he sat in because he's had trouble with them before and yeah people are born with nate goodness will says how they turn out as a choice <hes> Jordi maintains that will is an idealist which he denies. How do you see wills worldview? Is it closer to idealism than pragmatism I. I'm not sure because I'm sort of torn about it will is very opinionated. He believes that is how is and I know that there's a part of him. The is saying that because he has to believe that because he has to believe that people are good otherwise if people are born evil than than hopeless you what you do but then he does realize that some people just might be and that changes his worldview some people com- be saved that he can't help everyone and that that's hard to hey because he wants to help everyone. I mean that seems an outgrowth of sort of the philosophy. The show is embraced along which is sort of hate. The Sin loved the center <hes> to certain reach out to people in need <hes> but the notion that for some of these people there isn't salvation ovation that they can't be saved. I think would be tough pill for will to swallow it completely rocks foundations that he's he's built up his his life on but I I'm the same it I think you know I think the world can be horrible. Place in the can be people in new. You like to hope that there's some way that you can change that but more and more. I realized that just isn't there. Some people just born evil. I guess I mean that notion is echoed in wills fury Syria Carter. There's only one person blamed for Mariam's death nuts out of the ball. You know mischief Choi. Oh the devil enemy of all righteousness who will answer inspector Keating's questions we drank kicking working and screaming down to the station and every person in the towel. No you're under suspicion beginning your wife you excuse for a father. Should we feel that this pushes wills buttons for a reason that perhaps he was abused in some way by his own father very astute view that yeah that's yeah that's part of part of his pastas is going into too much <hes> yesterday with his family and his father and yet and seeing the treatment of Adam I mean it would to anyone regardless of whether they've been treated by Leonardo in particularly in him and also using scripture as an excuse for what he's doing that that is <unk>. You cannot tolerate that because you can't use those words to to hut someone in that way it is will perhaps less placid than he initially seems very very much always underneath the surface there is there is an anger the you know it's not it's not a is. He's not a thug. He's not hooligan doesn't just WANNA hurt. People are completely opposite but I think there's this some self hatred and stuff that is you know the Pasta's made him an angry person at the world and he's trying to direct the anger into being at a a force costs for good. There's a beautiful moment in the wheatfield where Adam signs it was me and will hold Adam tears in his eyes. What was it like filming? This incredibly emotionally loaded seen it was a very upsetting episode in May not not abnormal the actor played Adam go along really really well in and that would that made it easy to to do that because January really liked him and not I wouldn't matter it are the way but it makes it easier and then not that moment of of knowing that fearing the worst that this boy that you you've you've come to sort of almost love in this very short space at time because you empathize and understand him that he could be capable of something that again puts him odds with with my beliefs I could forget him. God could forgive him but he's potentially mud at someone. That's that's a terrible thing to have to come to realize the anger that sort of bubbles up within him I think comes to the four in the boxing scene which does underline that sort of need for physical release numb within him. There's a sense that he is definitely struggling with. Some demons is boxing and emotional release <hes> for those of pent-up ended up feelings as much as a physical one yeah absolutely I think I mean I di do it myself. I've got books in buying the I also use this like that very very similar to the more. I realize it's unwise but it is. It's it's it's I think payments to stop him. Becoming more self destructive destroy being destruct outwardly destructive in a way he's very close to hurt Encarta terribly he's very very close and he has to stop himself from hurting this person and that anger has to be released somewhere in boxing <music> outlet and because he can't be destructive person he can't be that anymore. He's actually really good at finding clues together. Motive I mean what are his skills as vicar lend to him here his his ability to talk to people people hitting that that's the difference between me. Enjoy Georgia's much more blunt with it you know and well can can speak to people in a more likable way. You know the scene with the grandma I've seen a little way that she moves and realizing that she wasn't a Mennonite on her life and he does start to piece together that there's things wrong. Not everyone was in the market in the morning mother died but GRANDPA's Oh this frame she isn't she's just treated that way. You'd had enough of being contained in patronized and if your son control his wife then you would. You've already denigrated our mother. Please leave the rest of us in peace. You did if around him didn't you. I couldn't measure her too. Many more core is ability to watch the way that people interact with each other or talk to him. That's I think is his skill. This is connection with human beings and is that sort of in his role as observer as outsider does that sort of make him more attuned to the nuances of human behavior absolutely absolutely yeah I think I think he wants to think he's a man of the people and it's made made him more aware of how people on I think yeah definitely gives them a keen keen sense of well the crime solving abilities yeah he does. He just take that very quickly. It's calling a no. We'll give his first first sermon to the congregants at the end of this episode. It's about fellowship. Fellowship is a constant comfort a source of strength in a well that can be complicated complicated frightening to are better than one fifty four the one will lift up his fellow and I hope in the days to come that we can lift up each other. I'm here. I'm your friend particularly. If there's cake involved is this wills mission statement ultimately it is he wants to he wants to help the world in the grandest way in microcosm you can help people have grant eastern. He wants to be on that level. He doesn't want to being again this stuff in his posse. He's trying to get away from the maybe we'll put him. In odds three people class thing for instance may be in. He wants to be down with best. Mrs Bennet Probably Khouzina Communist because he socialist kind of idea of the world would be quite good where people help each other out I mean the world is a horrible horrible place and it can be lonely and isolating we will go through terrible things and if we can live this life with how at one another that can make it easier. The tension between will and Leonard hasn't dissipated at all and the mood. Dude vicarage seems particularly fraught. How does the Will Leonard Dynamic continue to play out the season? Why don't give too much away? There's there are some ups and downs and a very very big down at one point which which which is is horrible it was horrible to do and for us to go through because because Lennon's having a tough time they series he's having a really tough time so as well and not really they're not know helping each other as much as they should be and that's because if Leonard Situation and he did want to be the vicar and he did want to solve crimes Jordan and I've come along and wreck that and we'll couldn't be more guilty about that fact and he knows that and he wishes a Leonard could understand that he doesn't want wants to be at odds with him but I think ultimately I think ultimately a workout how does will approach Leonard's rather delicate embrace of his homosexuality is he more accepting of Leonard Sexuality Than Leonard himself might might be absolutely well is completely liberal with the idea that the goes along with is for him to be to him to take on the Churches Homophobia would be that's. That's what I'm saying about his him being religious but he he understands the flaws in the church the fact that people have used Christianity to four four homophobia and for sexism and things that don't go along with who uses a pass now. He's a very liberal of money person. I think hopefully it will help Leonard embrace himself a bit more as as always nine hundred fifty cent grantchester delves into stories that feel particularly relevant today whether it's racism homophobia sexual assault I mean is the series as socially minded as it is crime focused in your opinion. You know I was thinking about this today because because I think in a way although it's a mystery and that is the show is at his heart I think the mode it becomes secondary to the to the lives of these people in the world that they live in this series. You know I think guard Chester's sisters as far as always never shied away from from issues but it's not as they're not put in for any reason other than that's the world grantchester inhabits I mean when the episodes came out you get people kind of having a bit of a pushback act to who kind of didn't like the idea of seeing racism portrayed in in the way it was as if the fifties were some wonderful in glorious time that didn't happen and you you think my God crazy of course it was it was one of the worst most racist times in photographic memory would pictures of people being lynched. That's the whole thing of you know then you'll talk coming over from his country and talking about miss this boy being lynched for for for buying a white gun ice cream. That's that's terrible thing that we that happened within. All with many of the view is lifetimes and I love the conscious. It isn't shy away from that he now it's it might be cozy mystery at times but it really can be hard hitting with the issues. You talked tobacco. You're calling as an actor win. Did you get that that sort of vocation wanted the calling come to you. It was very early. I always I was always a bit of a class clown. You know a Suave Bunka Puncak losses to going in mess around with some nights and so opponent plays together. My Mom was my elementary school drama teacher which kind of probably should we put should've put me off the whole idea of being an actor because she was she was a you know a stand teacher Mrs Brittany but <hes> but she always encouraged me she she did acting herself in the UNDREAMT society in my village and she she writes plays herself so I always had that around me seeing it and she was the one that helped me see that acting wasn't just hobby or something fun to do that. It could be a career which I didn't realize until I was about sixteen I kind of Tho- in my head to Brad on a day jump I couldn't understand something so fun could be career and my my my high school unfortunately didn't look acting as being being career. They saw you went down into normal thing. He became an accountant or a lawyer. You went to Oxford Cambridge funny enough. That's what you did become an actor. Thank God my mom and support him in that. You played poor doomed red coat. Lieutenant Jeremy Foster UN's nerds. It's hugely popular outlander. What was it like being a show with a truly obsessed will say fan base? It was an experience I mean I owe a tons outlander without that exposure to to the American market which enabled me to come over here and and get jobs in and then you know vice versa give back to Brittany eight apple tunnel does but it was it was quite <unk>. Frightening was my first time I was only in two episodes but because it was the first red coat that was an evil people really took to me and yeah I started getting bottles of sake sent from Japan Biz from Sweden not a lot of alcohol which she's grind me well and just presence from all over the world from people who seeming a couple of episodes and somehow love me. I mean did that help. Prepare you for fan reaction to Grantchester it did because I think they share a similar fan base of very committed fans which means it can go the way and that was people who loved the Jamie and the books and Sam might not have matched up with what they saw others did but but when people don't like you they can hate you especially on the Internet where people don't feel free to say whatever they want so I was prepared for that like a sort of barrage of hatred. I wasn't James Norton and I was replacing that much. Let character. Luckily that never happened. I mean when I come onto that I saw when we filming grantchester because people find out that we're filming there and there there were fifty people are waiting to see Robeson and James and may because they knew about me but luckily they were very very nice to me. You've talked about the fact that huge fan of Tom Hanks you play. Tom Hanks's right hand man in Greyhound. I did you fan boy out at all about hanks when you were filming this. I'm I'm unabashedly Accra cry. I'm very emotional person but when I got not cool I was in the middle of Soho out in London. Just having some friends and I just broke down like I broke down you never in your I remember auditioning for you. I I go dishing films reunite. Okay I could play this pop and then there I'm. Tom Hanks Film. Never GonNa get arena to get a cool thing. Tom Hanks once you in his film. You never know many news thing. You'RE GONNA hate on your life and then yeah when we got to sat and I saw him. I cried again because I always like you know you grow up watching this guy. He's the reason I'm an actor saving saving private Ryan. I remember vividly washing that filming going. I I would kill to be a film like that and what fifteen years later I'm. I'm in a film like that. I'm in a World War Two phone standing next to Tom Hanks looking in the I talking in an American accent with my hair. I still can't quite believe that something been able to your also an avid photographer. Would you like to shoot. I really into sort of people I really like taking photos of people go into doing protests photography a few years back and I go to human rights processes stuff that I on your about because I'm a member of Amnesty International and I start taking and and and you know so sending them to two newspapers and giving them to amnesty. I love doing that taking dramatic photos of of people in these of dramatic situations and I'm inspired by people like you know Don McKinnon in Steve McCurry love whoa photographers I mean I genuinely if I wasn't an actor I I would love to have been a war photographer. That would have been the dream. I was very close at one point. I was watching this documentary about Tim. Hetherington died in Libya. What was taking folks and I was like I need to do that? I need to do something better with my life act. He's not enough. I need to help people out but I'm too much of a count to do that going to stick with the acting I think most people would be not okay compared with the people who had just willing to put their lives in the lines to to you know get those stories out there too. I was watching a documentary the plan over here about Marie Colvin <hes> who was killed in Syria and just watching that and go and there's these brave people who are willing to put their lives and again. That's why like well by passion to help and I want to try and in some way through if I can Tom Britney thank you so very much. Thank you so much. In this season of grantchester. It's not just inspector Jordi Keating who has new colleagues to deal with his wife Cap has entered the workforce and found the experience both thrillingly modern and stark reminder era of how far women's still need to go. Mr Hubs is a man or woman. Maybe you gave him the wrong idea. It sounds to me like you've made it very clear him that you're not interested anymore anymore anymore. I never that's the end of the matter then put it down to experience actor Casey Ainsworth who plays the acerbic and steadfast calf loved her character's expanded arc in this his current outing of the show she realized that she needs to have a bit more outside influence and also like a lot of women in the fifties they had gone through the war a night done jobs that traditionally male jobs. They wanted bit more out of life. I think when you get to this stage in the nineteen fifties Ainsworth joins US next week August fourth to discuss cats surprising and timely plot turn the season and why her character is just as much vital part of the village as her husband and his rotating hating crew of religious crime solvers masterpiece studio is hosted by me Jas lay COBB and produced by Nick Anderson at least by e to our editor.

You were there to greet her and address the thousand thousands of people who are in the New York harbor waiting for her. You're from beacon high school. Why did you get involved with us so my my story goes way back and I would say a lot of climate activists. Today didn't know we were climate activists until someone else called us that I think that I personally I've always cared about the environment and I've always done my best but it wasn labeled until recently and for me. It was the power area that I thought an individual voice which was inspired by credit tune breaks message and I also suffered the climate crisis myself so when I was thirteen years old in Mexico in my town my town suffered from heavy rainfall and I'd also cost our river there to overflow which had heavy contamination the nation because of the factories that are near there and so that was the first time that I saw the climate crisis firsthand and he didn't really hit me that this was was such a global issue until I came to New York City and I saw the effects that can sandy had had a long island and that was a moment where I realized that it climate crisis not only you can follow you everywhere but it's happening everywhere and affecting low income communities and communities of color must so what did you start doing so. I became aware of my environmental club school. I started taking kids out to Albany and City Hall to listen to hearings and love your elected officials and then when we heard about the climate strike that was when I thought you know this is what we need to do to tackle this crisis as emergencies and for the first global climate strike on March eighteenth I got six hundred of my peers to walk out to Columbus Circle for the first comment strike and what do you here right now about activists in Mexico where you come from from. I'm actually very happy to see the activism that is going on in Mexico in Mexico City. There is a large presence of Friday's for future Mexico and actually chilly one of the activists there and moved to New York City and he was one of the elite organizers and now he's marching with us and he is updating us about what's going on in Mexico GEICO which is part of a global movement and has an indigenous young woman talk about the indigenous leadership of the global climate movement. Even though you said you didn't really think of it as climate activism might as just being an activist for the sustainability of the planet yeah for Indigenous People taking care of the Earth is not a movement is a culture and that's what I want to see out of these strikes and our pressure This shouldn't be a movement. It shouldn't be something something that has momentum. It should be something that we live with every day and indigenous peoples cosmology is that you take care of the earth because you're takes care of you and you arrested property. You need to give back and Rhino. I'm seeing a lot of indigenous voices being lifted up including today squabble strike and we're saying all that knowledge all it of taking care of the year for thousands of years is so important because the environmental movement didn't start sixty years ago. It's always been here today before the massive acids gathering at Foley Square which will then head to battery park where the major talks will be first indigenous young people will be speaking out and then international students. Yes we're going to have a land acknowledgement for to open to strike and part of the global youth who are going to be at the front end of the March are GonNa include indigenous people from Brazil who have come and visited us to talk about. What's going on in Brazil. Will you be a part of that. Yes we're going to break and then when when we come back oh we're going to Washington. We're going to Minneapolis and we will break the sound barrier with a student who applied for a visa Leeza to come to the United States fully paid by the United Nations. Seven thousand people applied he was chosen his from Afghanistan though he's he's studying in high school in Phuket Thailand he had to fly from Phuket to even apply from four his visa and he was just denied but he'll speak to us as well.

I'm urging all of you to take part in the global climate strikes on September twentieth and twenty seven the and just one last thing see you on the streets was very speaking Monday night see on the streets sites and those streets will they are filling up all over the world today. Young climate activists are taking to the streets for the global climate strike inspired inspired by Greta and her weekly school strike for the climate protests already underway in Australia and Europe Asia and Africa.

Member Ilhan Omar also in Minneapolis Jawara Jawara Jammeh is with the US climate strikes and is the coast state lead for the Minnesota Youth Climate Strike Your Hersi. I want to start with you. You talk about what's happening in Minneapolis so here in Minneapolis. We're actually having a strike start at a park where we're going arching toward state capital in Saint Paul and we're starting at eleven thirty and we're going to be having speakers starting at twelve thirty with speakers there's from Environmental Oregon in the state of Minnesota as well as students and then we're expecting to have booths and then escalated action later after the speakers are done and he's how did you you get involved with this whole with the whole movement How did you become executive director of? US youth climate strike as a high school school junior yeah at the time it was actually a high school sophomore and in late January of this past of this year I was contacted through instagram to organize for the climate strike for March fifteenth because nobody was organizing nationwide and so from there I decided to help organize and helped co found this group with two other individuals and then from there. I ended up on being able to become the executive director of this group. If you could also talk about what activism means you certainly come from a legendary line of activists. Your mother of course is Congress. Member Ilhan Omar did her activism inspire you you yeah on as a at a really young age my mother and my father took me to protests starting in the first grade are the gut me involved with campaigns and I we continue going to protest as a family. activism has always been part of my life. I wouldn't necessarily say that. I've I've been entirely inspired. She probably say that I've inspired her. but you know being in a family where activism is really valued has definitely helped shape to wear 'em today you. Aria Gianna you're sitting next to Istra Youtube with the US youth climate strikes your coast state lead for the Minnesota youth climate strike explain. How Oh you got involved why the climate why sustainability is so important to you yeah so I recently got involved in environmental activism and climate Emmett in the climate justice movement this past year after witnessing the effects of climate change on my own community. I currently live in like dominantly African American and low income community where we are right next to on intersecting highways and also pollution by fossil fuel factories in Minneapolis and a lot of that has affected the health of the people in my community and it's affected myself and my family directly and being able to witness these effects have gotten me inspired fire to get more people involved into get more people to understand the effects of climate change in how they've disproportionately affected people of color and how we need to change the narrative have focused on people of Color and continue building this movement and power. You are both Somali Americans talk about the effect of climate it change of global warming on Somalia yeah so in the past few years small yes had extreme amounts of droughts on twenty seventeen hundred extreme severe drought where thousands hundreds of thousands of people were affected and were becoming Shimmy food insecure for and these droughts happen very constantly in Somalia and those impacts have impacted both of our communities and our families that live out there and these are continuously happening because of the climate crisis and would like to add that go ahead jewelry. I'd like I'd like to add that especially like me. Being I'm from North Minneapolis. I've seen the effects in both Somalia and also in my community at home. I've seen the way in which air pollution has affected my health but also also the ways in which these droughts and food shortages as as you mentioned affect our family back home and you worry what do you say to the president of the United States dates. You were born in Somalia. You came here to the United States as a refugee. You're deeply involved with the climate movement right now now president trump is a proud climate change denier so I was actually born in the United States but my parents swerve immigrants from Somalia and I would say especially talking about the Climate Justice Movement and climate change that President really needs to act for US enact for the people that are being affected we need president and we need lawmakers are interested in really making change for people that are directly affected and not doing money any laundering and for people in power and your message Istra to to the president who as one of the most powerful people people on Earth occupying the presidency of the United States his cold climate change Chinese hoax yeah so president trump. Your actions are actually harming people. Millions of people across this country are being impacted by the inaction action that you're taking and young people are not going to stand down and allow this inaction to continue. We will continue to be on the streets until we see some change from your office office unless and from there. You're going to vote in you out because we need. A leader does actually go in and take action on this incredible crisis. We're also joined in Washington. DC by two more youth climate organizers Jerome Foster the second is the White House climate strike organizer Ganizers founder and Executive Director of one million of US also in DC Kelsey Juliana. She's the lead plaintiff in Juliana versus the United States the landmark youth climate lawsuit against the US government Kelsey. Let's begin with you in Washington. DC Explain Lane this lawsuit. You have been a part of for a number of years. You're the named plaintiff. Thanks for having US amy. This blessed is a constitutional channel climate change case against the Federal Government filed by twenty one Chris Young Individuals in two thousand fifteen at the time. The youngest was eight and the oldest myself was nineteen. This case looks at the actions of the federal government for the past several decades of helping to perpetuate wait the climate crisis by continuing to fund the fossil fuel economy endangering the lives of all citizens but especially disproportionately harming the lives of young citizens and future generations so we're looking at the ways that the federal government has very knowingly and willfully funded this climate crisis and the way that they are continuing continuing to stall and delay our climate case shows you exactly their priorities their priorities of their own self interests and continuing this greedy fossil fuel economy enemy rather than ensuring the constitutional lights rights of life liberty and property to all citizens especially young. You spoke in front of the Supreme Court Award Kelsey Juliana on Wednesday. What did you say in front of the Supreme Court. You know the message edge that I that I felt was actually a message of morning. I'm twenty three years old and I've been calling myself a climate activist. Since I was ten years old over for half my lifetime I feel like I've been trying to make an impact to make an impact and it's incredible that right now in this moment where three hundred thousand people in One Nation Malone have marched for climate action and there followed by the world over who are really taking to the streets and saying this is our time and and our rights and our lives matter her but on Wednesday you know it is a period of mourning that we are having to do this. We're asking children to literally beg for their lives to to to you have to fight for the security of a future. is is a huge shame on all political leaders president passed and it's unfortunate that young people on that children are having to be in this position but today it's also very exciting that we are feeling that fire not leaders the school board of New York and others are allowing young children to champion their lives. I want to go to seventeen year old. Youth climate activists Jamie Margolin the Seattle teen co founder of the Climate Justice nonprofits zero hour one of the group of youths who sued the state of Washington. I and governor Jay inslee over greenhouse gas emissions on college applications. I keep getting asked what do you want to be when you grow up the media pop culture businesses and the whole world tells me that I and my whole generation will have something to look forward to that. We just don't you're promising. Eli is everyone who will walk up to me. After this testimony saying the I have such a bright future. Ahead of me will be lying to my face. It doesn't matter how talented we are. It doesn't matter how much work we put in how many dreams we have the reality is my generation has been committed to a planet that is collapsing the fact that you are staring at a panel of young people testifying before you today pleading for unlivable. Earth should not fill you with pride. It should fill you with shame youth. Climate activism should not have to exist. That's the seventeen year old climate activists Jamie Margolin SEATTLE she's based in Seattle interestingly unleash e sued the state of Washington as well as Jay Inslee who's the governor who ran for president has dropped out now but he's he's the one who demanded a climate debate that the DNC the Democratic National Committee refused to commit to in fact Tom Perez the head of the committee. Eh anyone who participated in a an non-sanctioned debate and they weren't going to sanction a climate debate would be prevented from participating in in any presidential debates Kelsey Giuliana talk about how her lawsuit fits in with yours and in your lawsuit against the United States dates what you're demanding yeah so you know I'm also suing the state of Oregon and I've been on that case. I was fourteen years old. It's nine years old and and we have young people taking legal actions against their their states as well as people here in the United States but all over all around the world who are taking action against their governments because the time for talking is over and we're not willing to wait around for someone else's timeline to dictate the trajectory of our lives and what what we're asking for is courage courage from our political leaders and from these judges because we're asking for an end to the system as usual allows. Young people are leaving their classrooms. You know we're asking for a PAS a breakaway from the system as usual that is harming young people in the planet and so from this federal lawsuit lawsuit. We're asking for a court ordered climate recovery plan phase off of fossil fuels invest in carbon sequestration and also a constitutional right to stable climate system capable of sustaining human life. I WanNa Bring Jerome Foster the second into this conversation when when Gretchen Berry arrived in New York soon afterward she went down to Washington. She didn't lead the strike in front of the White House. She joined the strike in front of the White House and Jerome Foster the second. You are the White House climate strike organizer and founder and Executive Director of one million of US talk about this project you have and the corporate media. We rarely see these protests. But what have you been doing there. And what high school did you attend so I attend Washington Leadership Academy based out of Washington. DC ratify Catholic University what isn't execute to school which really centers itself around the future and preparing students for their future but really at any school in any time in the world. We're seeing that education is really not prioritizing -tising featured because we're actively destroying our future and that's the work that I've been trying to do at the White House is trying to call attention upon world leaders to take climate action seriously in the the three demand that I've been having is to have a call from moral clarity and for people that have political courage in for them to have intergovernmental unity and that's that I'm wearing right now is to have a call for international national international collaboration this time of the climate crisis because it is only in the cracks division that corruption can seep in pollution's can spew out and that's really will. I'm calling the White House climate strikes when I first started earlier this year where I mobile is there on four hundred young people from all across the DMV to come in really show the power our young people and show world leaders were action looks like and my work at one million of us is releasing mobilized young people into have generation on a unity across the US to to educate young people around the issue of climate change gun violence immigration reform gender equality and racial equality working with March for our lives in black lives matter and women's March international and with the Fraser Future Movement to mobilize young people around educating into vote and making sure that politicians don't see as young children who don't have an impact on our political awesome but as a strong united political force as part of the going growing movement one of us to have chapters on colleges high school campuses and also in community centers to educate them around the importance of their vote and why they should vote so you are involved with the DC Clean Energy Act. Oh you help to pass it. Explain what it is the cleaner energy. DC Act was really when I first started being climate activists. It's really being involved on which is about a year ago in February and I've heard about the clean energy. DC actresses and climate lobby DC chapter and this cleaner really reinvented DC's energy usage in nature prioritizes renewable energy through having one hundred percents electric buses to making sure that we phase out all forms of of carbon dioxide increase rebates for people that are by panels or by an electric car and that's really it's been the most aggressive climate bill in the nation ever since it launched in two thousand eighteen in it was really because of the testimonies of myself many other young people that were mobilized from the White House climate climate strikes indirectly after the White House climate strikes it was the third week we went to testify in front DC Council and make sure they understood the impact that has on so many kids that are in the DC area that really don't really understand the the skill scooper speed of the climate crisis in really don't understand how we can make an impact and that really showed us that we do have the power to change political system and there is a way for young people to effect change and that's really where it started and that's really what motivates to continue to to mobilize oh Blah and continue to strike every single Friday so jerome you hold these protests outside the White House every Friday your yards from the president of the United United States. He disagrees with well over ninety. Five percent of the world scientists and says climate change is a hoax. What message do you have for him. And why does it matter to you what President Trump says and thinks my message to to him. My message to president trump would be that. There's no more time to continue to accept money from the fossil industry. There's no more time to continue to be bought off in paid for because because this is our lives that we're fighting for we're fighting for our children are fighting for our sisters and brothers. We're fighting for people that are drowning and around the world war seeing for example in in and we're in Iowa ways documentary human flow. He talked about how millions of people are being displayed from the communities and that's really what I want. President trump to understand is that this isn't just happening in the United States in the work that we do here affects everyone on this planet we must act as such we must act as one united family and actually take action and not ignore the people that are dying around the world and the people that are burning and drowning and going through a massive amount of suffering for us to have the luxury that we have in the US and in Europe we must act when people bought and we must be accountable those people that we are allowing to die on our hands just for our luxuries. You're also jerome. You're also the founder Karen Editor in chief of the climate reporter. A youth led Climate Change Journalism Organization which has writers from all over the world explain what it is and why you think media is important here yes so I started the climate reporter in the mid. Wait through my tenth grade year in high school. It was really out of the fact that no one was covering climate news and no one was talking about the climate crisis. This was about eight months before grettenberger burke started her climate strikes and I really didn't know any other climate activists young climate activists that were in the movement so I really wanted to reach out to them and create a platform for us to talk about these issues that we're facing that no one's talking about so I started with my English teacher die we she helped me write articles about the importance of young people being united in this movement and being at the the forefront of it and I wrote about one hundred sixty seven articles and the span of a year and after writing my thirty Second Article I reach out to people that were in Australia in an article in Asia Africa for online communities to make sure that they are at the forefront of this movement and the climate reporter was really an outlet for communities around the world world to be able to share what's happening to them and for us to not just have a person that goes into their community and tell their story but giving him the power to tell their own story to tell their own narrative not of a narrative of suffering of his narrative of resilience in a narrative of being empowered by the fact that we even though we're we're suffering through all of this we are still trying to survive and that we're still trying to innovate interview people that were in the circle the council who were invited to the cop twenty four but when allow to sit at the negotiating table even though they have thousands of years of experience. I also went to the Lower Ninth Ward and interviewed people that were that were there that never had their homeless rebuilt while communities that are surrounding are primarily white had their had their homes when you go to any money giving back to them but that's really what the workday the climate for doing centering those those voices and making sure that they have a voice to the table Jeremy Foster. We're going to break and then we're going to bring someone else to the table for all of you to speak to because he's not here because the US denied him a visa despite the fact that thousands and thousands of students supplied from around the world to be part of the UN climate summit on Saturday before the climate action summit at the UN on Monday. He was chosen but he didn't make it because the US denied him visa will break the sound barrier with his voice. Stay with us friendship spy Paschal little blond. This is democracy. Now I mean he goodman today is global global climate strike inspired by sixteen year old Swedish Climate Activists Credit Tim Bery on Tuesday youth climate leaders visited Capitol Hill to lend their support to the green new deal cosponsored answered by Massachusetts Senator Ed Markey and New York Congress member Alexander Cossio Cortez Barbosa Ribeiro and indigenous activists from Brazil traveled to the the US from Brazil for today's climate strike actions note. They thought zero fico say had my territory in Brazil is in the dry highlands of the Saito. You can see this highland disappearing and are native plants are dying due to lack of water. If it goes on like this twenty years from now my homeland will become a desert. My people will be at risk of becoming history right now. The Amazon home to millions of my relatives is burning new our roundtable discussion with youth climate activists where joined by Chivas Tito organized with Friday's for future here in New York and Katie eater founder of the future coalition where she's currently executive director in Minneapolis assist Rehearsing Executive Director and Co founder of Youth Climate Strike and Jawara Jammeh Co state lead for the Minnesota Youth Climate Strike Washington.

Thanks for having me on democracy now. Also on the August Twenty eight Utah or without the date when I got up imitation later from the United Nations that I was invited to participate in the under eighteen participated in the United Nations Climate Summit on October. I applied the US visa on September nine I had my interview in the US Embassy in Bangkok early you don't lie to Bangkok from Phuket just to apply yea. I flew off from book to Bank with a US citizen teacher from school. He accompanied me there to Bangkok. Drop live for the result in my interview. Attribute Parliament must seven. Am of pretty early and I so in order to give their we spend a night there in a hotel and then are doing the an Tribu the wease officer in Investi of didn't ask me much Christian with a few questions on what I'm doing here in where my family lives in. What did they do in what what I'm GonNa do in the future and then made a really quick look at my documents which was Super Greg and told me that I do not qualify for the visa and so you were how many students apply to be part of the UN Youth Climate Summit all the information that I hi hat from the United Nations organizing team of the Climate Summit I don't really know about the exact number but they said that a over seven thousand applicants had had applied to be a to participate. I was and you were the one who was chosen under eighteen applicant. Tell tell us about your home country of Afghanistan and why you're so concerned about it right now. What has made you a climate activist. I saw the climate activism of started when I win last year not last year but like last year I would consider in two thousand nine hundred the floods hitting the western Afghanistan and more than has families were evacuated in most of those family. Were the nomadic people gun Stan who heavily rely on the host economic source have ladylike on livestock. All their livestock were lost their festival lost. All according linked associates lives were lost and that made me concern without the reason is because of the floods 'cause I was not the one agreeing the traditional. It's not view hold by the people about the flood and taking environmental are the one of my subject was another factor that helped me not just to understand understand how the climate the climate words and how sustainability works but it made me even more inspired in to have a wise about the about the this issue that's happening that hitting my country and the poor people they are waiting by the affected in a situation that they really have much carbon emission in really low ecological logical footprint like without having scientific tools just by Arab your had their data the wizards I had to local aid as in values in Afghanistan by by the way the primary information I said that their ecological footprint any carbon laws will the way load in one whereas the sources online sources to send its zero point seventy eight but what I presume is even lower whereas in the duleep countries. Let's take some European counties have more than for teams with United States having more than eight but when it comes to the arc it's mostly hitting those four people in those areas that they really contribute to this problem and that's why I started the started to to have a wise into actors of climate activists invitation. I was really happy that and finally I found an opportunity to have ice on a global stage. Weiss could be here by by different. The people who are really responsible early was just more than enough with unity was an opportunity to to go to deal with other climate actors than to the UN was going to pay for your trip here and also your stay here. The the denial you got wasn't even send I was listening to a report in Thailand. They land about the denial and they said somewhere on that denial was the date two thousand fourteen not signed and date from years ago. Honestly I really thought I will get the exact cause. I knew that specifically got the financial issues of the United Nation. I think was not being like it for the flight. You know one of the green ticket winners as I was under eighteen but the school was having the financial assurance today. NBC saying that all the in trouble associated costs will be paid by as much as needed by the schooling also United Nation was riding accommodation there. I did not have any financial issues you should at all. I have supported document to totally and completely supported although I want to give you a chance to talk to some of the students so you can't do it here. Dear Katie eater is with us in New York. One of the lead organizers of this mass climate protests today Katie if you'd like to directly address Nassar to they meet you. I think it's so amazing that were part of the same movement and started part of the same fight even though we're on totally separate sides of the world so I'm so sorry that we won't be able to in person but glad we're able able to connect this way. and I'm really curious to know you know one of the things that we really talk about in the US is that so much of the narrative around climate change is what we're fighting against and often now. We're fighting eating four and so I'm curious. What are you fighting for. And what's your vision for the future. Definitely we let let me change. Is afternoon mostly after problem. I don't really see it as a more future problems in a current problem I see the kind of the the problem that currently some of our Mo- hated by the Fox as an example of my counties and optimistic that situations situations get better 'cause the the you look at the the previous protocols like iota or either that the idea of the car the Carbon Carbon French trade whilst proposed the carbon tax proposal was not fully implemented at Multi-national Corporation. They just kept doing they. Were doing on. I think I I think if if the situations go like that I don't really feel optimistic and it's gone on them with wider. We're GONNA end with Gretchen. I'm very she just tweeted the climate strike demo passing the house of Nobility Stockholm earlier. Today I want to turn to her clip from being hang on democracy now the hour we spent with her. I asked her message to young people by message to to the young people of the world. Is that right now. We are facing an existential crisis. I mean is the climates and ecological crisis and it will have a massive impact attack on our lives in the future but also now especially in vulnerable communities and I think that we should we should wake up and we should also try to wake the adults up because they are the ones who their a generation is the one who who mostly responsible for this crisis and we told them accountable when he told the people in power accountable for what they have been doing to us and future generations and of the living species on earth breath and we need to need to get angry and understand what is at stake and then we need to transform that anger into action action and to stand together united and and just never give up so that's sixteen year old all Credit Union Berry who will be here in New York as one of the leaders of the climate strike here as we also talked to leaders all over the country that does it for a round table but certainly not our coverage coverage that thank you for joining us here in New York and Katie eater drone foster the second as well and Washington who together with the threat threat here see all of you will be at the youth climate summit on Saturday.

1997: Calling An Audible

"I listened to the Black Guy who tips podcast because Rawdon Karen Hans calling in generous. Because it shows you're not giving up on someone somewhat but it can also be an act of self care you're saving yourself emotional energy that comes with giving into anger. I could have easily gotten angry with that woman at the party. And I've had every the right to do so she. She had been disrespectful at Baston races at worst but I knew that calling her. Our digital racism would have done both of us more harm than good. I would've spent the rest of the conference. Philip sat and guilty and no one wants to network with someone who's distracted in angry plus make it make it a scene would have made me look really bad. So let's say you WANNA call in your childhood best friend or cousin. How do you start? Let's go back to the tech generate but now instead of Eric Peterson the random guy. Who Convict you sprain for the full blackout shades? In your bedroom the transphobic garbage is coming from your partner and your favorite uncle or close friend. Suddenly only cut ties us to the viable option and effective Colin is honest informative cautionary indirect. Hric hit sorry. There isn't a better acronym believe believe me I tried. You can remember this because there will most likely be hiccups throughout the difficult chat. Hey podcast your house right. What an Kennesaw Sipping Cook? Oh it's okay it's okay I know how it is. It's been a long day but yeah we are live on a Tuesday. Ray they do some podcast and then of course. Experts from Francesca. Ramsey's book well escalated quickly. Talks about you know how to do a call in Versa Carl out and why colony is more effective in certain situations in the collar now and what it means. I do think calling. People out does effectively when you're done with the person and and also it is a lot of emotional energy together to call out and there's a lot of performing formative two so four audience so I do think that I don't know why looking at some of the sheet that happened like this week. I was like there's a lesson a lot of these phone calls and direct messages and Shit but people don't do that no more. You know what I don't know if there's a generational thing away and so I know for me. This is why I know I can't book with everybody generational thing because you know it's people we handle it and we kick it with and I just want. The conversation is between us. If we do things and have a good time those things to stay between us. You know there are some things you don't mind I sharing. Don't get me wrong but there are some things where you draw my like. You've seen shit own social media all the time they go gurgle booked up they recorded. Ha Ah that's not funny. That's not funny not booking friends. Somebody gets high or something like that. You're recording you laughing at y'all not friends you know Ma- maybe because looking. Oh but you know. I'm like how everything me for the fucking Internet Ya think would call an outburst is calling in. I don't know this generation rationing. I think Social Media Kinda changed people. I think there's people our age de do this. You know like I just. It's something that I think. The platform form of twitter facebook instagram. Whatever it gives you a power that you didn't have before so things that used to be calling by nature because they had to be because audience is limited? You had a problem with your cousin you just talk to him now. You have a problem with your cousin and you know you have their facebook a tag my cousin. What the Fuck Blah Blah Blah? We see it all the time so I think we kind of lost because I mean these are the ways I think. Social media has changed our brains giant society. And we won't talk about it for years until they really studied it but we won't have the numbers for we'll talk about it but we don't have a number but I think that's what change agreed read and also I think to the is not an art but I believe is the art the art of face to face conversations the art of because. Because I'm and I say I think changed his eye of. I want to hear your voice. I want to see your face. I want to see how. Oh you respond to me where its main things. And when people read things they can interpret it any way they want to interpret it and take any way they want to take it versus. If I see you you say things. There might be things in context clues I can pick up on. I won't to see you know so if you're crying I want to see your eyes like like like I am the old school of a less. Talk this out a we can think this a you know. I'm not a fuck you list. Oh you're way because we don't agree and and we don't get along you just. I'm not of that generation. That was it was also just as people you can reach the people you think it's situational glad certain people you do write off. You know if I'm on twitter and somebody calls in Nigger I'm not gonNA be like okay. Let me call you in you know. Let's have a face to face conversation. You know situation. Some people like she brought up the thing. Like there's some people that you go okay. Okay I don't really notice trying to get the fuck away from me and then there's people that you care about you invest in and you better them and better because you care about them and better your relationship let ship if they understood you know I think one of the things now though. Is that with social media. We each have our own public figures. I yes and people kinda treat each other celebrities right when you have a problem with West you don't think you can reach us so he just tag him on twitter and talk about it. He's a coon right. But we also do that with just random aim gown internet random person that you know a friend or somebody or just person in your facebook group is like it's kind of changed now how people interact then now. We know for a fact that people don't really learn as often and as well from ridicule from the ridicule and at Modest Mitch inch shunning and harassment that a lot of the Internet is for but most people only care about that when they're on the receiving end of it or someone they like is on the receiving even end of it right any other time. It's okay so you know I just I appreciate it talking about that so much because it's just something I see every day now right and and and and because. I think that you know that is to say about this. Our generation is of the degeneration integration. Where we've been online shorter period of time? We've been outlined mortar. We've been online but you have a whole generation where this is normal to them being online being. It's like this is normal to them. Well You keep making a generation on. I don't necessarily agree is generational I think. At this point we are functions actions of the tools we use correct. So it's like if you give an old person gun or young person. A gun channel's awesome. I getting shot. You know because we all got guys is now and I think that's what a lot of this is. I don't I don't even think it's just like well. If you you know these millennials or whatever like I think like it's fun because that's forty five years old ninety years old whatever for if they are using these tools. There's a chance that they're you know using them in the way that they see them us because we're off off creatures of social interaction so if I go on twitter and every day I see somebody in a fight or every time I see people disagree they go at each other's necks. What is my turn? I'm more likely to do the same thing that I see everybody else doing so. I don't know that it's necessarily age. Okay now that part I agree with and and also I think a lot of it is personality like Ma the way my personality functions I began again to pick up habits of being allowed time like and I slowly did and I remember. It was something when when I used to lie tweet the walking dead and I think I misspelled. Oh something in or something like that and somebody came at me being snarky and I kind of you know kind of open over between over them and was like we'll we'll fixed you know block quotes right and you know you thought I was. You know being funny and everybody's different but when I did that I got high I never got before from that tweet and I said Ou know like like everybody's different but but when I got that when I got that Ooh I was like no. No no this is wrong. Everybody's did but I'm saying how responsible no no no. I don't like this feeling and this can take me down a dark path and I stopped at you. Know stopped at interacting with people. And things like that. But you know I realized that this this was was satisfying sodomy that I knew if I fed enough it would overtake my rational mind. Like Stop Live tweeting this shit too though. Oh so you Kinda Kinda let it take away something you enjoy to. Isn't that weird whine of like do I fight for the things I enjoy or do I have to deal with this annoyance. You know you chose the ladder. Not I mean he chose the former and not just said. I'M GONNA stop enjoying this thing online. You know so it's choices that people make but I don't like I say I don't think it's generational I think is situational. I think is personal. It is personal too because also everybody has different experiences online and I think we know way too many people in our group that the act. Oh Yeah Yeah. so that's ad Astra nineteen little kids and Shit and I think we do a disservice to the kids now because that generational instinct of of shitting on a generation behind you. There's a lot of like. Oh these these kids can't even talk. These kids don't know how to do face to face. Your kids are kids. I see them. They they still go out. They still do stuff. They still have friends they still you know like network and Hook up and yes a lot of inter actually takes place online but that's where everybody is pointing great. You know a lot of interaction takes place in your phone. That's for everyone at this point. Go to a restaurant sometime. Look around at the different tables not to our. But everybody's pulling the phone out every couple of minutes like everybody you know. I think one of the things with adult though. Is that a lot of thinking it's been. They're facing the phone because the adults give them the fucking thing they distract them. So you're here. Is You know when you're around. A K yeah. They might be a tablet to use a thing to distract them. That you don't have to worry about it and he will lie. Yeah back in the day they used to be playing with. Your toys are playing a TV like that. She hasn't changed but I just feel like I just like for everybody. We're getting closer and closer to an it'll come up in the show a few times today life. We're getting real close to like everything's a call out a call in and a lot of these folks have each other's numbers. Yeah and I think the idea is if you don't have my number that's one thing but if you can reach me I would prefer for you to reach. Speak to me because you have my phone For a reason why I felt comfortable enough to give you this number and I don't give my number to just any and everybody and you know some people do but I I don't and you know there's also this thing where people like. Well if someone fucks up you shouldn't have to reach out to them personally about our blah. Look Man I think people have gone too far with with the lack of like we don't offer anyone grace I don't tell them police quote unquote. I don't like there is an expectation actual relationship uh-huh to give somebody a benefit of doubt if relationships. Yeah if not the new me I'm like you can do whatever you want to do. What you are letting me know where I stand so have you you? You know if you call me on the phone I'm like well let's talk about this and you're like fuck you is talking to you all right. Well Cool I. I'M NOT GONNA force myself on you but now I know Dan. Thank you for the clarification and go about your life like. That's the kind of thing that I think about all the time now but Yeah but like I said I appreciate that book Because of that a reading rainbow reading I was getting to the news. A lot of stuff has happened. Oh buoyant Aug. News needs to issue two corrections to yesterday. Show okay the first one is apparently. Actually actually Graham is white not Latino. Oh okay I thought she was Latina. 'cause she was on the cover of Latino magazine in two thousand six so my hit me up and said she's a regular white woman so everything is still stands. Second Correction is somebody said that lady's like US podcast is not necessarily fit cabinets girlfriend it's two other knob black. POC women whose name Starwood in so. That's a huge correction okay. I don't WanNa get anybody in trouble over that. So that's my bad all on me My child yeah now. I know why people wasn't twitter. Try and make a big deal out of that podcast. 'CAUSE I was like the number one thing I am. I don't really have a lot of mercy they can get you. An agenda is happening so I was like man and talk about it now. I know why wasn't her walking. Ah Black Update. Nobody waved at me again today. Although I do I do I do make sure to smile and neither I know because I do think about the idea. I want my neighbors because familiar with my face. 'cause they might fuck around and called the cops because then I look suspicious. You know I'm not a member of A. What is it next door or something like whatever the the neighborhood websites audit tell people about you know the Brown people around it is? I'm like I don't WanNa be somebody thing I- casing the joint when I'm just trying to lose some weight and get some exercise and all that type of shit so but I did go walking today and I think one do meadow spoke to me and why one was her dog. It was so crazy like I seen that she cmih from way around the corner but then we got light on opposite sides of the street area. Whatever like probably ten feet away from each other she just suddenly he needed to look all the way to the right for about ten seconds straight? Just I don't know so it must have been happening over. That was real important. uh-huh into saying Aidid Commute. I'm not gonna Bob the funniest one I I saw her she had a dog and then she took her dog. I'd like to area what she had are back to me towards hours. Okay well maybe the dog had to prove or some guitars is like okay. This is purpose so I don't know 'cause I don't know people scared of people like like an in a bad way like they. I think they are scared of big black man and I happened to be one so I talk a lot of it up to that. That's true too and also I think nowadays people just get the people to in addition to that. Maybe I don't know I had to pay attention. They speak to each other. But I don't know Of course this is a blackout tears official weapon on show so is potato an unofficial support. What about we'll abolish stream are now can get it to see what everybody's talking about? What should we start? I Guess Cabinet Day to is I mean 'cause more news. We'll get more details Rosen. Shared yesterday. We'll talk about stuff and I had a lot of light. I heard this. I think that I don't know more concrete stuff. And as the only person fucking social media reading these articles as article 'cause if I see one more motherfucker semi son because the headline look right and then I'll be like yeah. Remember when he said Disney. We like Right you didn't read this shit. Why are you sending us out? Everybody you know what it is they send out headlines they agree with right. That's see I've been guilty. That yes that's it. Nobody likes the fucking article. V from two thousand wind. They don't give a fuck. I grew headline but you know what I died five years ago. What so apparently? That was the one into a big things kind of became clear according to sports illustrated is that there we're to waivers not to waivers provided by the NFL it seems according to Michael McCain. At sports illustrated that Cabernet team had their own waiver and it was about physical injury only the NFL had their waiver as well and it Had Additional language in there that was about. You can't sue US based off of this out based off of this workout and this is not a promise to employees employees and Blah Blah. What I have not seen yet and I'm still waiting to see and I'm still without in a little bit of judgment? People are saying that language language in the NFL waiver was special for cabinet. It is in everybody's waiver and the NFL would would not at the last minute agreed you to change to sign a waiver that his team came up with and then they don't sign the NFL waiver. Right so I I need to see or someone needs to do the research I don't. It's been a two or three days now. How to fuck has nobody isn't Monday? I'll say to this show. It's Monday right. I think it's my dad. How come nobody's got just like a regular waiver every athlete that doesn't work out so doesn't it doesn't have the normal Weber leaker? Don't nobody got a copy of it. Apparently yeah like can't we can't. Isn't this a question. We can actually get a definitive answer is if they were trying WANNA set him up with a special type aware that nobody gets so. I think that's a big one And I think that people should look into that and come come back because to meet a huge thing if he's if they if his team rejected a regular waiver but and say well we got extra language in well. We're not really. We wanted to sign away. y'All setup cool the other thing was apparently it was not an impromptu switch of of of location in a way that It was advertised. It was a calculated related switch. And it's looking more and more like cabinet and his team never planned to do the NFL workout in the first place Because the location that they switched to they already had and William C.. Rhoden wrote this article so before anybody. They come biased against cabinet or some stupid shit like that because I know I need in state now though blackness in front of Spokane lose their minds we'll see wrote is not no motherfucking. Kuhn or any of this shit okay. He wrote a fourth fourth the fourth and a mile. If you guys WanNa read about the history of black quarterbacks and racism Well he wrote a piece for undefeated And and it was called cabinet called an audible and beat the NFL in this game and it is a great piece in this kind of puts. I was feeling into like into like full context The NFL try to play cabinet. Cabinet played them back and the only people that really got quote unquote quote hurt in a situation. Are People that actually did WANNA see him play quarterback in the NFL right now. Not Saying that you're a bad person if if you know you're GONNA go back person if you are rooting for him to not play or you're rooting for him to you know to do this. Steno his I don't know whatever I'm not saying that but I'm saying if you were legitimately hopeful this weekend nat some sort of work out with go on within the NFL would have approved moved He would get an. Nfl Job is probably not going to happen. But yeah I I read this piece. It was good Colin Kaepernick provided proved beyond any doubt on Saturday that he belongs in the NFL during our long workout on a high school football field in Riverdale. Georgia cabinet all things NFL personnel would expect to see from the League quad caliber quarterback. He threw out right. Routes on a rope pinpointed slants connected on a medium or medium and long routes once cow on site said he believed cabinet still had an arm. This is not why cabinet proved he allows housing league Saturday. He showed the maturity a tactical acumen of an elite. NFL field. General Cabinet outmaneuvered the NFL. No matter what the League had in mind nine it failed last week the NFL accused by critics says twenty sixteen are Black Cabinet put together. A hastily convened workout at the Atlanta Falcons trying facility and flowery branch Georgia while the workout had trappings of legitimacy with low level scouts. In attendance it had the smell of a sham. The workout came out of. The Commissioner's Office. Not My offer cabinet a trial in three years. Why now that it does? This is all the stuff that I was thinking like. They every team could have invited him in the last three years the while I do think sync with January thirty Roger Goodell and Jay Z. Do want this due to be playing for different reasons but up mostly both of them can agree. They both took a black eye over this. Do not plan in a in a lot of public ways and any look any appearance of making a means for them would come out personally as a positive even if they still lost a lot of goodwill but I still going to be like fuck all y'all oh blah to them. It's like well now. It's Kinda worth it that being said if the fucking front office has to be like hey guys we won't like like take a look at this guy you're also saying the teams won't do it on their own right and if you feel like you have to provide cover for them Mike at some type of job exhibition the you're also saying that the teams are too scared to fucking get a better quarterback than the ones they haven't roster bringing them back with broken broke leg like they bring him back people that ain't got no Panama fucking money too and so a lot the MAC and nations of the Li. I think colonnade and his colleague Abir Nick and his camp probably found insulting right. You call me on the Tuesday K.. Hey you workout on Saturday you got two hours to do it No media a you know. Some of the details have been. I can't tell which details are true about the negotiations because Certain people are reports stuff and they got sources with the NFL. Other other people are reporting the exact opposite so I don't know which one is true so last week the NFL accused by critics says. Oh yeah say that part no media will be allowed to watch. The workout cabinet team would not be allowed to videotape it. The NFL will be the judge jury and it became the executioner the League league with videotape the workout distribute to all thirty two teams and make a determination or cabinets NFL readiness or worthiness invariably were would leak out about the myriad myriad of his cabinet workout the cabinets workout reveal the NFL as often does would determine the narrative right and so I was thinking about this overnight. You can't really blame cabinet for not trust in the place that black bottom for three years and play. I paid them in a colluded in a lawsuit because they knew that they would possibly either lose or have dirt expose and depositions ingred. You can't really blame him in a workplace grievance for being like I trust these people to be on up and up about my ability ability to play now know that well it into the Up and up aside. Play a game Blah Blah Blah. I get it but is it really beyond your imagination at the. NFL could be lie. You know what the he missed. Some throws he's special you know and you don't have any proof to back it up or even worse if he gets played and then all the people online and support him start. Start talking about what you should never take up there. Did that work out. You know he played itself. Because you know everybody's one fucking thing for mayor by turning on us so he goes from. We support you. May You stupid you fail for that. Bullshit man you know wander they. Are you know that I can see that. And if you're his his lawyer and if your cabinet team you do have to consider the worst case scenario agreed you'd like to go in with positive faith and all that stuff but I think from the time he he was offered this he was like. Nah I gotta look the worst. Yeah Saturday at the last moment cal cabinet called an audible. He canceled a workout at flowery. Branch switched to Charles drew chops. High school an hour's drive away. I was in a car. Outside the Falcons Training Facility when the worst bread that plans glance at change. Yeah like I think someone told me. He announced a change to the media to thirty. I don't know if that's true or not. We're supposed to take place or something like four. So that's not even if you knew you had an hour to change venue. That's not a lot of time you it had to be there all right. Let's go right now. Yes so people started being like teams wanted to see him. They'll make the drought they'll show up but with the change of time did mess up some. You'll schedules there. Were people that are like I gotta catch playing Shit Era Green. Who came under the support him ended up having to leave to go get ready to play for the panthers so it did change some things? It seems Because not everybody was in on this Let's see. Oh Oh yeah. This was not some hastily drawn up a plan understand on a playground. This true well organized move took everybody by surprise in Ottawa. They caught the NFL napping the workout was executed with efficiency and coordination. By the time of media. Shifted from the Falcons training camp to the high school cabinet. Security team was already in place. Ace there was security at the entrance to the high school. Checking off names security at the interest to the field lined up by the media checking bags Vincent and media personnel through to be shooting shooting. Everybody is supposed to be here is in here. Not just that but think that means he had it planned from from from four. Wow that's not a last committed thing. Your team shows up in vets. Everybody in time for everyone to see you do your work out that you recently switched to four. Yeah y'all Yabu y'all executed this shit. That's why when I hear Stephen Smith today because I had to see I had I knew. ooh Oh yeah it was so good. I don't know I know I know you. The coup de main was so mad. They it was so good. I even watched a little bit of. I Hate Yeah Michael Eric. Dyson no near allergist oil. So good y'all outta be worse was being used. Wouldn't it was Stephen and Michael. Eric dyson begins Max. Kellerman Nice Keller. He couldn't he. Can you can Gordon Max Kellerman fighting the good fight now with all the all the The vocabulary and allowed this hand Iran. I just found this extra. I just find this especially preposterous on a day like today. I wanted to be absolutely ridiculous. It's the height of Ludicrousness Christie's then Michael as late. Great to pot secure fit this laureate and scholar. If ain't no oh fun. If my home is can't have that was actually snoop Dogg. Calvin broadus with them all confused. He know how to respond. Raveling as Coleman was fighting the good fight down a Golden Ali. Ali Frazier all day. I know you love boxing. Ah Max that why Tuesday he put on work today with a long shift on. I tape yeah to let them get off the respectability Bosnia awesome. He come back and blatant batter. Don't matter what thirty had on none of it he he why to. You got to keep it like not racist right with his like bars like you gotta be like. He can't look like he's running down onto black men about race so he he was walking that line. stowe good boy. He was good today. Anyway I missed a great show and I only watched it and show but I had Agassi was Stephen today and you know he just got eight million dollars from new contract and do twelve shows a day now. Everything like I woke up. He was a a guest. Somebody else shown on the phone. And they're gonNA get eight Million Dollars Hill daily I take and then he did his radio L.. Show I say God. He really went in. He was mad as radio. Radio searches him right so he ain't gonNA bounce off of. I heard I didn't watch obviously the interview. He did on the brakes but I heard on the breakfast club. You got asked Bobby called Koon. And he said don't bother him well. Let me tell you some right now. It bothered him. I'm it bothers him. This man boy some some them argues I make no says because he was so seven. Thirty Airdrie Mukalla him out his name. You say he was mad for Real Ya'll lives and I haven't seen I heard he went on. Twitter order made a new video after he got off the air victim. That man is mad as hell. I mean because it was a gang. Hang on twitter light vernay even put a tweet out about him and you know able only stay out of it with these these these black folks you know Oh do this shit able put out a tweet that him on that. Sheriff Clarke took Salvi together and she was This man locked up so many black people say black lives matter terrorist. Organizations red. Black people died in his custody. In jail You know about him she wanted to know. Do you want that smoke. An answer is no. Nobody wants to smoke. Doc Graph But yeah the smoke growth. It was how good it was. It was anyway all right. That's a complete tangent it was it was so the army was he made against Airdrie was one of them. was like you play with an organization that you claim his the white supremacist powerball. I'm like yeah I feel you but it's also a workplace this view so labor dispute if you who fell. ESPN unfair to you and was doing something. Unfair to a colleague of yours and you spoke up and Y'all went to trial and you settled and. You're still able to job and you got to do the job again. And let's say in this case is Jamaica Hill. Did they decide. We're not hiring her or we're going to keep box box freezer out of the industry and you spoke up for your home girl. I mean you're not wrong for that. Yes you have a job. But you're not saying you know a UH no one should work organization you're saying like this organization is nine on up to not treated somebody fairly and I have I have Ah. I feel an obligation to say that that being said obviously angry takes off the insoles in some of the things he says about the. NFL is like I get why people would be confused because he will take it to the woke and they play football and they hit people for a living is not align then not necessarily the most fucked in like. I don't know if I were to you know what I mean. It's not. They haven't thought all the angles out yet. None of was there. Today is still pretty young news and while they might be righteous they not gonNA always get it right and you know a lot of the stuff that they say is stuff that it is almost like either they kinda just arrived these conclusions or they just feel this feeling and they haven't they don't really say articulated as well or they don't really seem team to to to speak on the issues from a place of life scholarship and stuff but that's okay because you know where the heart is you know anyway. Oh Tair but he was so mad airy man. It's like the whole show. He's just keep coming back to life not home and is just lie. Oh own anyway. Back to this Even the site selected for the workout with symbolic Charles drew high. School was named to honor birth the brilliant black surgeon who pioneered methods of storing blood plasma and innovation save thousands of lives during World War. Two in retrospect is likely the cabinet never intended to work. Out at the Falcons facility agree. We we show up at Yoho squad there. Yeah yeah they was there while we was while we was on our way he it was only where they're preparing key remind they wanted us. They're like people have like the cabinet shirt zone light. It was a protest rally essentially essentially does I can Can we get an. Id like they tried to. They tried to play him And he basically deep him and his team played them back and that seemed to be the plan from from job which like I can't really be mad at it man? I know you know I know I. I'm not saying just believe everything coming out of his camp. Because I really do think some of the stuff was embellished. The waiver was special. Ed Need to know that for sure you know. They didn't mention that. They had their own waiver that they want signed. That's a pretty big deal. Yes it is you know they know which elements to leak out that will get you on their side as opposed to make you be like well Nigga that's never gonNA work So you know. Even the media little session rushing he had to end where he said like a minute. Twenty second rant. No questions taken no explanations. Anything else why you know they. They're good at playing the game I from cabinet is probably the best sports figure activists quote unquote for the social media a DSP is he just just like he doesn't say much so you can't cancel him He doesn't do much other than you know. Workout workout and then occasionally he'll show up for some charity thing which We we'll get to this but we never charity checkout. Just keep that in mind So yeah in retrospect is likely cabinet never intended to work. Out of the Falcons facility. Why would a man who meticulously constructed the image? The football activists shunned by the League validate a sham trial by participating in it Cabinet Colorado on Saturday and took back the narrative. The reason for making the switch cabinet. We'll tell us later. It was making sure we had transparency of what went on if the NFL hastily the NFL's hastily arranged workout was a publicity stunt. Cabinet responded with of his own one. That was far more effective secure in his impromptu. Sure as a man of the people he laid out the new rules the workout would be open to the public and to the media at the workout worse bread he would address the media albeit in one way polemic in a one way to limit. Meaning he he. He didn't let them. Let's say for the first time in three years. The workout was as much of a protest rally as it was a football workout designed to solidify cabinets bays as and cement his reputation as people champion. He's been as much time England with fans as he did. Working out. Finally Cabinet came over and address the cluster media. I've been ready for three years. I've been denied for three years. We all know why says Saturday. y'All been attacked last three years. I continue to be attacked. We appreciate which I'll do. He approved. We appreciate appreciate you being here today. We appreciate the work you do for the people in telling the Truth Gavin extent of mistake the presence and persistence of media as a sign of support. Not The to nasty follow the news and report it. Yeah that's the common. Is that for the fan for the media because the media is not there ear because they support you. They're literally there because this story is never mistake surveillance for support because these will watch you. Burn yourself alive to report every every second of it come on either way. The truth is in pursuit of the story. The media allowed itself to be manipulated by the NFL Amber Cabernet. I support cabinet am. I admire the courage. He showed a twenty sixteen however the narrative is now shifted it is no longer about being blackballed no longer about not being given a tryout. What is he going to do move before likely without football? I think it's just a little Saturday. Captaining made a statement that let me know he had no intention or interest in ever plan in the NFL. We're waiting the thirty two owners. The thirty two teams Roger Day. All of them to stop running. Stop running from the truth stopped running from the people before he left Cabinet added. We'll continue to give you updates as we hear here we'll be waiting to hear from right to the NFL and the thirty two teams. We will let you know if we hear from the Bosnian networks. They're likely will be no return rally the NFL l.. One cabinet one and media one cabinet gated. Nfl Out that it needed and antagonizing NFL cabinet gave himself the multibillion dollar NFL enemy. The people that he needs. Yeah this is like a no offense to him offensively supporters. But this is why I I feel some reticence to just all in all cabinet like that because everybody's essentially playing the people watching one one way or the other right at the same way that I'm just not I'm not caring for the NFL. Light Moore no issue. He'll need to be an elite. He loves TANNERIES PRISONERS AND LIVING Games. Like I don't say one thing. We could all agree on is that he's good enough to be in the NFL. And if you agree on that then everything Kinda China becomes bullshit because they find us to get everybody else back in the league. Don't they know so why not this. Why is him being politically literally conscious about blackness about police overreach and oppression? Why is that the one thing? NFL CAn't fucking stomach. You know what I mean that's S. was killing me about this shit. The only losers are anyone who wanted to see cabinet and get a chance to play quarterback in the NFL their cabinets NFL. Exile exile many speculated that teams simply did not want the Media Circus and distraction that comes with having a moment team however the real reason many. NFL teams won't cabinet has nothing to do with distractions. Surrogacy is saying what Michael Sam right many. NFL teams do not want a player cabinets vision insight and influence in locker room full of impressionable young black players who might have their eyes open but what cabinet has to say as a young player Cabinet beat teams with his arms and his legs. Today at thirty two cabinet can win with his mind. Mind as well. That is what he did. Saturday that's what frightens the NFL. We'll see road and Who wrote forty million dollar slaves and so forth and a mile? So yeah that Kinda sums up how I feel about this shit where I can admit those games would there's games we play I think the NFL was playing a capping. It you know went ahead and said listen I. I'm playing a different game. Then and everyone needs to get comfortable with the idea to do is okay if he does it plan. NFL here the ones that are his tires. Turns are not at all and there's nothing wrong with that. Everyone can do this. You can do the job. It doesn't mean you're going to get the child but you can say hey I don't get a sixty thousand dollars salary. I'm probably getting. I don't want this job. You can do whatever demands you want them. Yeah they don't have to hire you but you can. It's just more weird because the NFL has a monopoly on this skill. Set really if for people that want to make serious money doing it. So it's just you know is is more pressure took conform to this one company essentially but yeah cabinet in my opinion. Play them as much as they play or like more than they played him and yeah and Afars language in the waiver and stuff. The only question I really have is is that standard or not someone someone please if you know if if you see a link to to to confirm it let me know. 'cause I've seen Mike Florio pro football talk and they I would deny real like that. You know what I mean. People just kept sharing the same article over and over but that's really just kind of his opinion on the article other lawyers have looked at it and say well. It's never been used this way but someone I guess you could use this language to try to stop Another lawsuit but then why has it never happened before four so like I say I need to know if that's an everything or if that's what civically for cabinet because that will go a long way for me and be like. Oh Yeah comp- like I see the whole. Oh point now because if that's only for him then fuck them right like what else. There say like the Open K. isn't make no sense. It was a complete set up to get him to signed. Signed is right away if it's something that's an all the fucking things and here's people just are particularly sensitive because he might be someone. NFL again at some point I understand understand that too. I'm not saying he's going to work out but then I also understand how the NFL would be like. WHOA WHOA Well yeah it was all it was all Think that's all the new details that I've learned over the last however long okay. Did you have anything else. 'cause I don't stay on top of it like there. Yeah yea check out Stephen Smith. y'All get a chance man damage. We all agree so so. Good luck man. I you know I. I don't know how gonNA work out. I just I think everyone can stop trying to advise him away way he should have said. Do you accept that. He seems to be comfortable. Not Plan a right right except that you start you relax. Everybody's so picked picked up because they think the ultimate goal is getting back in the NFL and like someone told me today. Well you don't have any leverage if you don't do to work out I said Nah uh he does have leverage the leverage in this case is he's okay if he's not playing he's he sees himself as more than a fucking football player. That's leverage coach. That's power you can't take that away from you know so. I think people should consider that shit only if he really wanted to get in. The League should've went out that through a bunch. Taking picks in air completeness Shit I feel like they thought he was sorry they put back in the league right away immediately. I put Disneyworld sway these. Let's put these niggers in their place. Look out there throwing these wildly balls. That's what you guys wanted. Black lives matter. No one took me sorry I write the real. Most shocking part of this is that he hasn't changed his name. Because you know whenever black athletes get real controversial has changed. Muhammad Ali changing Muslim real quick. Mohammed Ali Kareem abdul-jabbar. Mike Mood I'll do by the fact they dismantled changes the Khalif X.. Right now I'm looking. I'm looking at suspicious. No you might. He might not be bad about it. and I saw everybody talking about the way I always. I know if I was signing away. y'All niggers use the face age in Russia. Now I saw y'all all Yada right to the. NFL THE SUBARU NFL. All the same boat. You know what that was in that long gas forum where you're just like. Oh actually it was in that for the NFL. Oh now I facebook Russia got my face. Unlock my phone. Thanks people people say that the waiver you know every time you or your God damn computer at work signed a waiver because your company says we will mind to your Joe. Emails phone calls text anything associated with this job. People sign waivers all the time. What did they talk about I would assign that should've cabanillas Neil Yano better shit. He's going to sign it and they're not GonNa do that as far as like. Oh Shit but anyway luck to everybody involved And hopefully you know chill out keun holiday time. Because I'm tired.

Not Houses sounds very own opera talking to twitter last night. He tweeted the Flyer for the event. What's your take place November? Twenty four th Hollywood Blow Epa Theater in Los Angeles and by artwork. Wait why Nick Knight he wrote the name of the production never tied Nazar. which is it never concern sir? Is that what it is which is never okay. I've heard that before I just. I've never seen this bell. which is named? After an ancient Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar Looking Nazar ruled from six zero five to five sixty two eighty is mentioned extensively throughout the book of Daniel in the Bible. This announcement comes just. A Makarios spoke about the Babylonian king for his latest album. Jesus came speaking of deejays. Alo Said Never Could Naser was king and a he looked at his entire kingdom and said I did this guy say oh for real you did. This sounds kind of familiar right outstanding on the tip of the mountain talking about Jesus say I did they do that. I'm a God and I would. I could talk to Jesus at the end of my show at a guy dressed up as Jesus at the end of my show he said okay. Ed Hey man like I hope. He's okay all I got. y'All I don't even really have I. Did I see the video of him talking about Joe Church did you see Yeah Man I don't like I know people got I joked I don't know that he okay. That's not me being funny. I liked just some stuff. He's doing and saying it just reminds me when people Spiro specially the religious part of the spiral and then you know him bragging about being on and off in the past stole all the good producers the devil stole all the good musicians all the good artists on a good designers off good business people said you gotta come over at work for me and now the trend the shift is going into Sh- to change. Jesus is one victory from the greatest artists that God is every exist created. It is now working for him. I would like for everybody to be completely us. Oh Yes oh God flow through me as I speak to you today protecting your kids from the indoctrination of the media the thousands and thousands of images that are fed head to children by the age of six or seven and within those images there are images mixed in that we don't know about as Paris Garissa purposely mixed into lower the kids superpower and esteem. So that they can be more susceptible to Consumption and feel that they need to consume and become a part of the robotic numeric system that control host so many so much of the media. Because if there's an advertisement for a strip club that advertising sex trafficking because at the end of the night when when they closed up the the manager says how much traffic do we have so if it's a a man that's going through veins with his family are going through things at work and he feels he has to go there. We all ended up participating. This spirits that get advertised to us all the time alcohol is they call it a spirit so we get constant advertisement for spirits. Just into the CL- last clip just rambling. It makes no sense. What you just said is one of the most insanely idiotic? So I've ever are hard at no point in your rambling incoherent response. Were you even close to anything. That could be considered a rational all five. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you know points and may God have mercy on on yourself. What D- won't let drowning his church but he got Cayenne stay? They like a spiritual which affects the people. What is happening? I have no idea and you know what's scary about it too. Is that you know. I know the reason. He's being allowed in these spaces because he picked very all right White Christianity version. Like that's why you know all these black people in the choir it doesn't matter is because we know his politics are all right and white. Evangelical Christians are the biggest fucking constituency of evil motherfuckers. That will pay people to be evil. Ever you know like they he. He's all the way God damn none of that was really making a lot of Senate. No you know was like you know. It reminds me of when you're fucking a freshman in college and sitting around the dorm because I have baked out of Mr and they're using work correlations to make it seem like they're saying something deep asthma centers. Yeah it's like so you know. They Alcoholics Beeri. Because what I'm saying so you've got spirits inside it was like the fucking you talking about. No I won't stop talking like that. That's like Y.`all like applaud initiate. Isn't it saying what's happening right now. All these people why he was made a couple of work correlation agent and I get it See Sex trafficking because they ask. How much traffic did we have? You know what else they say restaurants and they sure do so. How much traffic did we any business? That is I fucking brick and mortar business. They say how much traffic foot traffic does that mean on. It put traps cars. Driving sued to today have highways in the building late. Do this this is not. I hope. He's okay he gets to help that he needs. Yeah 'cause the the thing is he's so big and such a celebrity. I honestly don't think anyone could check him if they wanted to agreed. And the sad part is it seems that nobody wants to and I'm not even trying to blame for this shit. This is like people outside of camera now right like cameron them at put out stuff. Why we don't know about this? We tried to talk only. We're trying to get them into this and that it it just what you do when somebody's mega mega rich. And and and do whatever the fuck they feel. I don't I I don't know I just hope this doesn't end at some tragic shit because every time I see him now I just like I try to avoid them. Because it's just saying makes me feel fucking. Yuck inside this. Wow this yeah and no Marley here is not always been this way is. This is different like like one of the reasons that I think so many black people are hurt by what he's doing is because he literally had direct opposite politics this I I've done it before on the show. I went through his lyrics. Eric's before and just start doing like. He said this. He said this he said this. And now he's literally send opposite of those things. I don't know what it is. It's literally the opposite opposite. is how he feels about things. He started saying like you know he used to talk about you know racism his music talked about systemic oppression in his music instead. Now he's candidates on inside. That's not the same. Maybe people might have felt. He always has mental health issues in some eagle issue. This like it hurts for a lot of people especially people that maybe misguidedly but I think it really hurts for the people that like kind of empathize with him when he lost his mother and Shit because I remember a lot of people making a lot excuse for his behavior at the losses Ma. Aw we lost his mom. It's like you know a lot of people losing malls kayakers. He's doing extra stuff you know and I think it took a a long time for people to come around on that Shit. A lot of people still hate Taylor swift mostly because they ran up on stage Dr. Yeah she just happened to be the one you know I like. I don't I'm now man. This is this is sad to me man like I. I don't know him. No personal level to to speak on like how could handle this tragedy and all that stuff but but it's been a long time now. Says he lost his mom and I don't I don't know he coming back quote unquote man. Anyway I would make jokes man but I'll say this if to me it feels like to TMZ video by everybody was roasting in outside Tad doesn't seem stay will. Yeah you know because you know he has always been confident and cocky saying yeah you know but but being being confident and cocky and actually to the point where you go are you okay because there's a lot of confidence caucus people that got common sense. I think also we as we don't always had a worse for like what mania looks like diagnosis. This finish it. This is like is mortar. Confidence is more than arrogance is like. He talked about his diagnosis. He's also talked about going on and off mets because he thinks it makes them more creative. You know I'm I don't know I'm assuming talks about being bipolar. Like it's a science to this shit is not just People feeling a certain way and the thing is with mania like the higher. You go when you're bipolar. The lowered depresses side of it is and it could get bad man. People just seem to be entertained or even entertained by being outraged at the him is still a form of. I'm getting my entertainment from him. As opposed to you know being concerned about him and maybe he's just rich and famous people. There's a disconnect where we can't be concerned about him and people feel like what he's doing is dangerous but I don't know man let's use it bothers me out. Oh yeah because this is one of those things where I look at him as a human being. I just wish him. Well like I'll I'll go. I wish you well. I hope you get the help that you need to the in a in a healthy space. Yeah I feel like maybe I don't WanNa say a black thing but it's definitely a knows what's the church thing for sure but as day whereas like if we say there's not a problem always say all you just be acting is kind of like our being like no no. They just don't need any like metal medical intervention type stuff. You don't need any like therapy. Psychology type shows. No no no no so he just he and it's like man we will watch somebody the extra all the way to some tragic happens. OUGHTA will the extra all the way to breath like I was scared for him is is how I always feel and I know that's not a popular thing to say because people are more just coonass that that's just what people people feel now and I'm not I'm not even saying he doesn't believe the stuff he's saying I just I just don't feel like even if you believe that shit way he shares it and talks about it doesn't it just don't seem it seems very weird especially knowing his past is very fucking weird. I don't know man man I don't know oppressively just called for criminal decriminalizing sex work. Due Out Thursday morning Massachusetts Representative I honor Presley introduced the resolution California overhaul of the US criminal justice system the resolution titled The People's just guarantee includes proposals to combat. Mass massacre ended the death penalty act bills system and minimum sentences. Let's do it also tucked inside. It was another one other major proposal. Call decriminalize the last X.. Work for far too long those paying have not been close to the power was gonNa Racist Xenophobic Rogue and fundamentally flawed or criminal Justice Justice System Presley said in a statement announcing the resolution resolution calls for a bowl of transformation of the status quo devoted to dismantle an injustice started. The system is smallest. Safer less punitive and more you may according to Presley. The resolution is the result of working more than twenty grassroots. With more to twenty grams. Organizations Does Asians are individuals negatively affect about a US legal system the first eleven paid outlet outlined the REP discrimination behind the cars behind the corporation in the US where a concentration race out of highest in the world. Yes it is it is amazing. It's countries the population doubled tripled is in their percentage of people in jail is lower lower This watching my favorite crew. y'All y'all y'all can have. AFC is cool and she straight but live cold saw by Presley though that's bay. The resolution also acknowledges the way sex work criminalization has targeted low income income communities people of Color and the disabled other marginalized groups come on directly calls on federal the federal government to address the structural inequities that impeach the safety dignity and well-being of individuals. Especially those most vulnerable to discrimination on the basis of race gender identity or expression sexual orientation disability socioeconomic canonic status and citizenship status last week she endorsed Senator Elizabeth Warren for President But neither Warren nor Senator Bernie Sanders widely considered the two most progressive presidential candidates. Today's that fully endorsed the decriminalization of sex work. That's one of the reasons that people try to sing. Allow Kamala Harris on this year. I'm always like which candidates are fucking walking decriminalizing sex work right. You can't just throw she at one person and leave it there. If everybody got the same like I don't know about that in fucking can policies who are going to be the vote presidential candidate to do that because if not is an issue that's on the back burner for all the candidates right because not thing you know what Ah Fuck you know. They'RE GONNA pay for sex like okay and my thing is once you do this. You make it safer. People can go to the police if they agate assaulted you. Don't you don't have police. Actually hunting him out in abusing their things where it has to be decriminalized only because as we know that criminals criminalising it has not stopped at curtailed. It at all and it's put a lot of people in fucking prison that they really really don't have any business being there and we have places in America where it is legal so we know that like Reno Nevada you can get. There's a fucking bunny any range like so we noted this is possible and the only thing stopping us at the same religious right people listening to the West Talk about messages to the children and all this shit like now and also just one of those things where you know. We talked about six traffic. And everybody get scared. And they pearls this cartel that bullshit. If you D if You do this this would stop a lot of that you you can lease cut down on it and it is right now is I'm not saying legalize the stakes were boom all the problems. Go Away No more patriarchy. No more no men men are are are being regulate are being charges pinups and shit like. I'm not even saying this all the problems. I'm saying we know for a fact that not doing doing anything is ineffective right no facts. We know people are like sex trafficking has because we don't regulate shit you now now is because we don't there is no legal version so all of the same people you know so I also I think a lot of people that are against it. They have the problems with with six people fucking period. If you're not married why you fucking okay okay. Like they're gonNA fuck there's nothing you can do is human nature. There's nothing nothing you can do to stop it. Yeah it's like the criminalization of we'd like the book our locking up our own this year. It's like Mike People kept thinking. Well if we fucking scared a black kids out of doing we 'cause you know they get caught. We they have less of a chance of making so what we do is we put the fear of God in them and make not smoke we by throwing the book at them. And what you do you put out a black kids in prison. That's what you did now. The black kids are in prison. The talking about not having a second chance that you claimed and putting a heavy legislation fear into it was going to give them. People aren't scared of penalties in this way when it comes vices normally people have abby the Dixon's or something like that or you actually have literally two different fucking worlds of crime for for America. There's is why people getting caught with weed slap on the wrist or no trouble and black kids getting caught. We going straight to prison. Why you were not talking in a vacuum here Um so Presley's latest resolution appear to signify to congresswoman hour shift to the left on the issue of sex work she previously supported to stop enabling sex? Traffic Goes Act and allowed states in victims to the allow states victims of by online sex trafficking widely known assessment foster a pair bill signed into law in two thousand eighteen advocates argued jeopardized sex advocates argue. Jeopardise worker safety and livelihood in the name of curb extravagant. Yeah and the thing. Is She the evolved on this now. A lot of folks will let her evolve nece because they haven't told her yet right and she's a black woman so everybody the black people would. I know we'll give her a chance. But if you're hoping for Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden. All these people come around on it too. There's going to have to be a certain amount amount of allowance for them to shift their fucking views. Because what we do now is we. You should have used we hop on you twice as hard as when you were resigned to a negative view so so you say I'm not with this extravagant extravagant and then you go. Well actually you know what some people hit me. They talked to me about this. I will consider a decriminalizing sex work. We can't be like fuck. You were twenty years. I've been asking you to do this. No now is the time it does how it starts. It started out in times would not be shocked. I don't notice what factors I'll speculation but oftentimes people like Elizabeth Warren People like Bernie Sanders. They float ideas like this through surrogates so the same way that Obama floated out marriage equality via the Biden so a like. I'm I'm for marriage. Equality you know and I think the President I talked to him. He'll be down to. That was a wink. Wink nudge nudge. Like hey guys. We can get president onboard. He's already award. That's kind of what this could be that. This could be a field in this out for Warren or some. Why a you I know the stakes work thing we should legalize it and then I also endorse it and Elizabeth Warren so maybe we can get in roles of somebody that has her ear via this and somebody Barbara interim it'd be a good stream of revenue like it's almost like they is like we don't we want to regulate it but fucked revenues so our legalizing weed? Though great. A lot of a lot of a lot of places didn't want to do that. Even though there was quite obvious that it would have alleviated a a lot of the you know a lot of stuff all right. Let's see what else can we talk about. let's do Uh well actually do this on real quick. I really only have one or two articles to talk about in this segment. Okay but but they do need to be talked about. Yeah I WANNA ask you and how abby tell me eight to blow outs. It's now you along with me all right.

You know things of that nature where maybe you haven't hit that yet or maybe you didn't think about it or whatever you know maybe you thought consulting glad was good enough. You know I like I can't. There's always something more that people are GonNa want right. You know ain't always a bad thing you know. Sometimes it can be frustrating and irritating. Don't get me wrong but it's not always a bad thing. If People's intentions are like good like a like include me do better like that thing where they go it called is slowly slowly pushes you to the left.

Kirk Cousins, Packers, Kaepernick's shoe, Kyle Lowry + Isaiah Thomas

"Hey Yeah Jimmy here and you speak for yourself. You're forced to think for yourself and when you think for yourself. The sports world looks in order to enjoy this podcast. This show you need to have the courage to look at the world from alternative points of view and not be offended when you disagree. Speak for yourself. Isn't your twitter. FACEBOOK instagram feed. SF Y tells you what you need to hear and not what you want. So welcome aboard buckle love and enjoyed. We start with Monday night football. I can. We please quit paying these mediocre quarterbacks like their franchise quarterback ooh leave. That's my takeaway from Minnesota quarterback kirk cousins falling to Owen Nine on Monday night football last night cousins in the vikings handed ended Aaron Rodgers and the packers the NFC North falling twenty. Three to ten at home cousins was terrible. He completed half of us. Thirty one passes for one hundred twenty twenty two yards and one interception big game big bust Kirk. Cousins is a fourth-round quarterback. That's what he is. That's what he'll always be same DAK Prescott cousins and debt can quarterback super bowl winning teams same as Brad Johnson and Jeff hostetler. You don't have to be a first round round pick to quarterback a super bowl team. Hell you can be a late pick and develop into Tom Brady or Joe Montana. But you can't develop kirk cousins and and Dak Prescott into Brady Montana. It's not going to happen. They're not franchised quarterbacks. They don't have the arm talent the know how or quite frankly Gli the balls to be elite. They're solid NFL starters. And that's how they should be paid. There are small cut above Andy Dalton the longtime starter in Cincinnati and a small cut below Jimmy Garoppolo and Carson wentz young guys with the potential to reach franchise status but cousins is being paid twenty eight million dollars a year by the Vikings. The Washington redskins wasted to franchise tag seasons and salaries on cousins. Hoping he would turn the corner improved hooved more than a solid starter. Let's stop the madness. I was against cousins giving paid in Washington and I didn't like the contract Minnesota gave him. I had the same reservations about Los Azazel. Is Jared Goff another overpaid solid. Nfl Star Conventional Wisdom says. It's smart ways huge salaries on solid NFL quarterbacks quarterbacks why that money could be spent on great linebackers terrific lyman. Outstanding tight ends big play safeties hell kickers why why is the escalation of mediocre. QB salaries seen as being inevitable as the fall of top running back salaries. Todd girlies contractors a cautionary detail. Why isn't kirk cousins or galls? We act like. There's a law that if a quarterback holds a starting position for three or four consecutive years he must be paid a franchise quarterback for quarterback. Is the reason you win games. Pay Him like a franchise player. The Mark Jackson Patrick Mahomes Russell Wilson Aaron Rodgers. You can't pay those guys enough overpay for drew. brees Tom Brady. But that's it there six franchise quarterbacks in the NFL there. There are three guys whence Garoppolo Shawn Watson with a chance to be franchised quarterbacks. Everybody else needs to be paid. Fifteen to twenty million a year and and give the extra cash to the Bobby Wagner Stefan Gilmore Travis. Kelsey is of the world it beats blowing it on cousins and deck are joining. The desk. Now are Fox sports. NFL analyst Lavar Arrington and Bucky Brooks Marcel. So I'll start with you. Please do this kirk cousins. A franchise quarterback yes. He is a franchise sized quarterback last night. Did you did you and did it. Remind yourself there did remind me of Aaron Rodgers when he came to California both of those games. Oh it did kind of did it. Remind me talk radio when he was going against this and that little bitty but honestly they don't have the same equity a resume. So I'm not going there but what you're describing as a franchise quarterback you're actually conflicted into hall of fame quarterbacks. All of the guys who named Our Future Hall of famers are on a trajectory to be in the hall of Famer. But there's another tier here which is between let's say all pro status or pro bowl status and a guy that the franchise could sell hope and hope that they can win with that is the criteria for franchise quarterback. So if you look at Kirk cousins what is he the leader of a ball club. You're talking about last night with one arm behind his back without his top two running backs he would out there a lost the ball once again on Monday night but if you look at Kirk cousins in totality he he is a guy that you can hang hopes on that he can win and hopefully get you into the postseason and make a run so for your criteria hall of fame quarterback back then. Obviously you're not going to respect his his body of work but he is a French. No I love your definitely appreciate the hope quarterback. You're right and you don't all pay hope quarterback like a franchise all really rich Gannon late Minoan. He was a franchise quarterback he not at that age. I don't pay more. I hope the franchise man I'll take I'll take because this is the one one instance where I'm GonNa agree with Jason with I'M GONNA agree with him because I've always believed that. The quarterback pay scale has been out of line. Here's the deal you pay quarterbacks Deccan elevate your team on a strengthened the right arm you pay those guys that you're one money so when you talk about Lamar Jackson being in there drew brees Aaron Rodgers. Tom Brady forever. Those guys are worthy if they can't elevate the team if they need all the pieces around him to be correct. You can't pay them thirty plus million dollars that has always typically been handed it did did. I've gone because why am I paying you franchise money. When you can't elevate the franchise and you need all the assistance elevated? To what level is the conversation satiate Brady last night at home with the division. Also we're telling my regular season winslow. I'm just talking about doing your job. Elevating the tea. We keep putting Brady in a conversation with Juba reason Aaron Rodgers and others. Those guys have one super bowl and you know why they only have people because they don't have all the pieces around them at certain time. Tom Brady didn't always have old if he's exactly so if we go say say franchise quarterback and put Brady's name in it everybody else's something different. Got No Radi you just you change. The definition to winning super bowls buggies talking about. Elevate your team on a consistent basis. And they'll ask. We should call it elite. So let's just say the elites so it's only a handful at least at least the top ten Dan percent so we'll say the at least the Pat Mahomes that grouplet those guys up there but there is a group of guys who their contract comes up and we're paying them like like guys that can elevate that he didn't know just speak thank you. Can you remember Washington before a new table is a stable. Elevate stabilize him as a five hundred quarterback guess what I'm paying for why pay for average. I'm just telling you he did stabilize the team. Okay we'll say no. He's not a franchise quarterback. I will disagree in saying that. He does have the potential to be. I think he does take off a lot of boxes. Says you can't undervalue. I know you. Respect is you cannot undervalued character and the leadership of a guy. That's an that Li role kirk cousins. He's the legacy of quarterback in France take our leadership. I'll take a leadership is money when you look at the money. The money is based upon what what the economics of the position is required less. Changed the air using this. But we can't base that off of Kirk cousins. You gotta based off of what. These franchises are paying in that position. It's the position that's dictating them. And I and we need to look at it differently your position used to pay the money back to the most in the NFL. It doesn't anymore the different. That's still a different conversation. You're moving the goalposts and distracting conversation. Here Kirk cousins has the ability to be a franchise quarterback until well he gets there. Don't let the economics of the position says if you have a defense like the Vikings ad and they've gone as far as they've gone in the the playoffs before getting him. I made that mistake before won't do it again. You still are looking at possibilities. Are there for this team. Came by putting him in that position and they pay for what they thought. They were getting now vert if he isn't that yet. He isn't that yet but does he have the capabilities he certainly has. There's this amazing there. Forget that the Washington redskins were three in thirteen before kirk cousins got there and he took them all the way into nine but he wanted to go up when he hit the field. You WanNa see go for always nine wins. Eight wins every downhill from three wins the winning team winning teams record in spotlight games. That's not translated average guy kid. It's pretty strong. What is he has his thirty two? There's only thirty two jobs out there where you could be a starting quarterback. He's thirty you too. He's relatively average. See above the average. He's not a top ten quarterback he's above average. He's he's right in the middle all of the pack. Come on average. But we're paying later. So the whole thing is the skill is out of whack. Because with the quarterbacks any quarterback is getting big time money did highest paid guys on the team. We've all said and locker rooms and we've looked across there and we've seen the average quarterback make more than everybody else and we know that he's not the reason that team is winning or losing and so if tease would just make it like it was at the port I got. I pick who they won't give me more cells instead of saying. Hey the quarterback the gotta takes to snap every play is the most valuable guy is wrong. We all know what you know. Why because all the quarterbacks old TV talking about how important the quarterback position in everybody talks about how important a quarterback no no no no? Don't tell everybody all of your different dimmer than the one you are. All the system has way so it must be just say he just said. I don't know what your saying. Oh Damn bulkier science. They say they need to evaluate these guys based off their contribution to the team. 'CAUSE Bucky just made a hell of a point. You're Nick foles making twenty three million dollars and we need Iraq the economics driving the position. You guys are putting it on the player's name put it on the player's name. It's the economics that surrounds. How's the position and I'm going to start talking about those same economic? Take it when we talk about the cat that is wind up ten plus million each year for the last six years will justify the money he makes but what would justify Nicole. Public opinion will be the numbers. He is the quarterback of the ten win franchise charge possibly eleven. He is the fourth rated quarterback in terms of quarterback passer rating. He is fifth in touchdowns. But he's not top opt-in so where do you WanNa go to show. He's not top ten if this performances and the most important column win loss column shows. He's a top ten quarterback the bank CAIXA. 'cause 'cause what's going to happen. Argument is going to flip in. We begin to talk about Dak Prescott because then everything that you're talking about is with passing yards and quarterback and all that so I mean so then it's GonNa flip because then he is right behind Tom Brady with the wind since twenty. Sixteen in Audit and other. Yeah yeah so what happens is when we made the quarterback out to be the endo beal we end up overpaying for the position as opposed to evaluate and guys strictly on on their talent performance and production and contribution. That's how it's always been buck. Yeah you're right you're right though Lavar Lavar I mean honestly good. We'd have to go deeper than that's how it's always been because we let me. We just kept with. That's the way it's always been. We wouldn't be on all four of us. We went on this so yeah I don't care that that's the way it's always be what we're having a conversation about. Aw is what's right and to me if I'm an NFL player in these locker rooms. And I'm playing these other positions and I'm damn this do can keep going out out here with his average but he's GonNa get this major major a pay raise. Nick Foles GonNa make twenty three. I'm on May eighteen million. Even though I'm a pro bowl ever made plenty million last. Sorry if I'm a NFL player. I'm Elliot is making dangle money it only got thirteen fourteen. Let's go if I'm Ezekiel earned. That donors year. If I'm in the locker room talk girl who has no games yards is your. You Ain't earning Nedeau. So why are we keep picking it at the war okay. But I'm okay. I'm okay with also hold people to task. They look right. Compensation Station and production have to match his does is this his. Here's my forfeit quarterback passer rating. Let's so okay. So then we go James. It's up there Jamie's got like five thousand dollars his money. We're GONNA talk about here. In thirty minutes talking economics position. The position is driven by those those echina- whether it's been that way all along or not the NFL wanted to understand. American used to have a business model. Okay that I can call. That had us in a position where your position pays you nothing and so we might as well. Just keep it that way because these these people are valued at a higher robot of all. I'm saying is with the NFL. If I may. NFL player plays any other position the quarterback. Why don't we keep sin? In an all. The money to the quarterbacks how come more McCain come on is the rule making fourteen million the reason why. He's not catching much. He's making fourteen million if they were painting thirty five like they're about to pay that he would be catching major. He would have to justify touching the ball every single play which you can never do what his position most important position and position. And let's be real all play different positions in the locker room. You can focus singularly own gesture or position and ball out in the NFL tale except one and quarterback everybody else if you tackled men out what they doing back in the back end. Don't you don't even know what a quarterback after no all eleven you guys including themselves and then he has to know what the defense is doing in disguise and then projecting that to what is going to be in reality moment job unscrewed around Bucky Brooks back. We're joined now by Fox. NFL analyst Tj. Who's been Zodda time now for big story? Let's return to Minnesota where Aaron riders and company had no problem taking care of kirk cousins in the Minnesota Vikings last night to clinch the NFC north. Green Bay is now twelve and three and while they haven't gotten as much attention as other teams in the NFC like the saints and the forty niners. They can actually clinch homefield advantage with a win over Detroit and a forty niners loss to the seahawks on Sunday. Aren't the question. Here's our the packers. Will they be the team to beat if they have home field advantage. Oh absolutely if you talk about their homefield record right now being seventy one and then you introduce a team that can travel which play defense run the football but they get to stay at home introduced a real twelve man which are the elements all those coast with a team that run the football and play defense like Eh is going to be tough in the NFC wide open because you fear no team at the top. You don't fear San Francisco. You don't fear New Orleans you don't fear Seattle you. You don't fear Minnesota so if you're a green bay you say bring 'em all through here where we've only had one loss this year playing our style of football and then the extra condiment of Aaron Rodgers going back to vintage year Rogers instead of playing within the system era Rogers which I commend. But if he goes out there and has his individual performance with this team gene. Oh they're going to be tough to be absolutely not. They won't be the team to beat and I say that when play the forty niners earlier this year they lost thirty seven eight. There wasn't even a game. They got destroyed an earlier in the year. And that is not the same thing. If I know the defenses in the same for the packers either because the packers have H.. Inc Threat Nathan nate play well in spurts. But they're not consistent. You're not a consistent defense in you the way. They played last night against Minnesota. If they could do that every week then they would the team to beat but if they're eighteen obviously they cancelled. If you're asking me I believe the saints can go in there and beat them and I believe the forty nine can go in there and beat them. I think this is a weird team for the Green Bay packers because because their record suggested there wanting but I don't think they're dead because I don't know what they're seeing that you win is what does win the missile. Because that's the signature win in con we're talking about the division sixth-seeded sixth seeded team is the signature win. That you have. Yeah I mean like So-so just think when you're looking at the Green Bay packers. I think they have to play a certain way to thing that makes makes them dangerous is number twelve can go off at any time but if you ask me if they're better team than the San Francisco Forty niners no. They're not better than the New Orleans Saints No. I think they're a team that could just necessarily be a one and done out team than a team. That goes all the way. I think right now on Christmasy. They're better than the forty niners. Because I think the forty niners have backed up Jimmy still loose with the football and San Francisco's defense is backed up the best team in the NFC in my opinion is the New Orleans Saints Sean. Payton drew brees their their defense on a mission. However if the Dome team has to go to Lambofield in January that scares me and concerns me as someone that thinks the saints are the best team in the NFC so homefield advantage? I would be critical. Drew brees at his his aide out in those elements. That's a tough scenario. Yeah the forty niners have certainly come back to the pack. Look they're still. I think a tier two team in the NFC in the early star. We knew the record was going to change the week. Eight idiot and they have responded less than compared to their record. So if you look at with the signature win is beaten Casey. Okay whatever you want to say thank you said you'd be Minnesota okay. See I know what you're saying. Okay but TJ. Mr The eighteenth and defense not not really their ninth in scoring defense. That matters more than yards. I'll give how many points we give there's takeaways so this is a defense that stingy at the right times and make sure that they stop. You wanted to get into the red zone. And they're great on running the boss Betsy I down so they're gonNA have a lot of second shorts. What Aaron Rodgers sitting there at home and it's freezing baby snowing? Oh that's tough to beat that. Like the forty niners defense obviously hasn't played as great. But when you look at it they're still the second ranked Defense League shrink offense in the League and so for me you can play. Hey Bat all you want but when the numbers say your defense is the second ranked defense in your offense is a six rain offense. The numbers speak for themselves and their winning games. You'RE NOT GONNA go undefeated to the six rain offense the second best team to beat. It doesn't matter how they play as long as you win a game. That's the team. Jay Don no please he. You're here because of your expertise on football. Oh Bob Yeah not your analysis of numbers now and so again when we're talking about the forty niners. I'm talking about what we've seen here lately from their defense from Jimmy Garoppolo. Look all your VAL Games. You're not every deep. It's a reason why when you don't play well okay. The office will take care of defense in vice versa. That's what happens. I played on a team of Cincinnati. Two Thousand and six. We led the League in forcing turnovers on defense when the playoffs come. You're not gonNA force as many turnovers you. You can't rely on it. You have to play style defense. You can't rely on your defense getting turnovers you gotTa play style. Defense stopped guys. Three and out you you. Can't we now turn. That doesn't happen. I just don't know if I don't know if they can consist in the play this style that they're playing because they've been able to get away with whipping up bad teams with their defense heavy pressure but when teams run it right at the light the San Francisco Forty niners did early in the year. They had a tough time stopping it. I just don't know if those teams New Orleans and San Francisco if they see that they have to travel travel to Green Bay if they're scared to go to Green Bay deal you like though I'm going to ask Kyle Shanahan or Matla fluid couch Shanahan. But luckily he won't be putting on E. Palo for coming up so La Locking Wiley Lavar Arrington TJ. WHO's been Zodda are back? Let's move to Colin. Cabinet still isn't any closer to realizing his dream of returning to the NFL. But it looks like the former quarterback has still somehow how managed to have a merry Christmas anyway with his new signature shoe from Nike reportedly selling out just minutes after it was released yesterday. All right. The question here is a are the new kapernick shoes Nike shoes. Is this a good look for Colin Kaepernick. Oh Man I am torn. I would say it's a bad look because of the road travel like one off top. I am happy for anybody that has their own signature shoe. If you're Marbury in China to all the guys who've tried and some who have you know I'm a big supporter of the triple B. Big baller brand. I am in support of someone doing that. And Free Enterprise for profit but when you use the calls to gain the popularity and the martyrdom and to one resurrect your Nike. The deal which was about to be off the table before this level of popularity and then more importantly use your workout. That was supposed to be for skills instead of four marketing and profit where he first introduced issues to get to this. That's when I have an issue with it. Look all with the proceeds going to the calls because the call is certainly got you to the point where you have the signature shoe. I need to have that answer. I need to know a lot more of the detail of what goes into this. And what comes from this to what got you in this position which is the cause. I say it's a good look because of what you just said I. I kind of looked into it. In his to retailers are going to donate a portion of the proceeds to two of the causes that he supports and disclosed amount. Yeah so so. We don't know the amount in he's in his position because he has people obviously a ton of people that support them. That's why shoes sought out as fast as they did. But if a portion of the proceeds Rosie's are GonNa go to a cause that he supports then of course it's a good look. He's not planning anymore. He has to be a businessman he has to earn a living. And for that. I'm all for it. I think it's a great look. I think it's a bad look and I think it just further drives home. The point of a selfish approach something that maybe didn't start off as being selfish it it was selfless to begin with has now turned into a solidification of it's not about social injustices. It's about capper Knicks agenda. I don't know where the strategy with him and Nike has began or begun where it starts where it finishes but no one likes to play a fool. You know you might have liked liked cleft low dollar or a couple other people out there that that have preached Gospel and have Created Movement and and has solicited funds and have sold a product to further. What it is that their agendas but I just look at this and it almost seems like you're exploiting the very thing that the purity of y you became such a polarizing figure represented? Hope I it just seems like there's too much of an agenda connected to what's going on now the whole thing i. I think it's a bad look. I I can't stand it I can't stand the I'm fighting the power but I'm doing it. On behalf of Nike One of the largest global corporations on the planet Nike is worth twice the amount of the NBA and the NFL combined. They generate far more money than the NFL. They are a global entity that profits off awful of slave labor in Asian whereas and and and Colin Kaepernick again is fighting the power on behalf half of Nike Nike's bigger than the NFL bigger than the NBA. And somehow people being sold the belief that he's fighting the power he's working on behalf of the power at its highest level by branding himself as some kind of freedom read them fighter for Justice and equality with all he really is is a brand in the again. Why it's a bad? Look I think of love any other athlete that perhaps authentically wants to take a stand for some calls. That's controversial and polarizing will now look just like another Colin Cabinet. Because this is I've said from the outset and I stand on it. It's always been about building a brand Colin Kaepernick. That do was at his happiest when he was making beats by dre commercials and he was the coolest thing going and football and then once he lost awesome job and became a second or third tier quarterback in the NFL. He threw a Tantrum. And then it spiraled into this whole I'm going to build a brand randazzo martyr. And now he's playing to the bus and TAP. Dancing for Nike is bad luck. It's disingenuous role disingenuous. US road things come to mind like oh now I know why you were dead. Set on filming and televising that workout to the World Nike. He probably had them string. Say Man we got shoes that you're going to wear it this work. That's going to be part of this launch campaign. Be Dead set on making sure that part of this marketing not for scales deals but for brands. One that makes me think question cabinet. You Go Alabama. If you've got a different user. Dole missed missed opportunities messed up opportunities tweets racist owner Blah Blah Blah players coalition saying why is capital difficult. All I say is Claire's coalition was able to extract ninety million in dollars from the owners. I wonder if these shoes going to be able to do it. Because if it's about like you said some of the proceeds going to the calls. The players coalition was sitting there saying we got ninety million directly for the call. Why would you not take that? I know why you won't because it's about you. It's about you flipping the cost to coin for your own self gain. While you're going out there and patronizing everyone disabilities because everyone is going to be endeared by the cause so I just look at the whole situation man just see fraud about a lot of the elements and when he has no response to that. I get tired of people defending someone who even defend themselves. You could finance a presidential election. Why not find find your dollars? They probably a naked probably approach with Nike. Being a part of what capper nick is doing. You could probably approach the numbers. Where's that could finance a presidential race? So you're talking about putting some money here in this community center saying this will put a couple of dollars here we'll don't know talking about you truly a freedom fighter and you working with a company that makes generates that type of money that Nike generates show us. I WanNa see who you are putting in a and putting out there to go on Capitol Hill. WHO's going to go into the nation's capital and start talking about all of these social injustices when I start seeing that intensity connected to that that with the dollar connected to it? Then I'm okay with it. That's not a hustle. He's a hustle when he started this hustle and he'll he probably won't admit it he didn't didn't understand the magnitude and the gravity of where it was going. It was unplanned. Obviously but when you give your own money which he did in I don't I'm assuming blooming. This is not going to be a lot of money. That's being donated right. But he's doing something in that's you can't I hate the the standard Well he's doing something because that's a very low bar. We have a very low bar of what we there's a lot of people that are doing. Aw That's why here the support but there's a lot of my as but again. There's a lot of people incapable of making that kind of huge impact. True because again all you can really do is start with the man in the mirror and control your actions and your behavior and I give all praise to any individual no matter how poor wealthy this doing what they can individually but when you become wealthy in my opinion to whom much is given much is expected this dude dude is wealthy has a large platform. The Standard has to be higher. Well he's doing something. Well you know what my little cousin Josh. That's a nice day but usually do more than what you'd benefit from it. It does what you basing it off. No mass if if you're basing what you're doing off the process an ideology of what it is that he has built his. He did not built this reputation as brand off of being a football player player super bowl champ or MVP. He's built it off of off of Trayvon Martin off of a Mike Brown. He's built it off of tragic situations that have happened between interactions with the police and regular pedestrian civilians. Walking around if you are basing what you're able to do offer that belief and and it's a foolish. Following is a foolish following. I think that's super dangerous. Nobody likes playing the fool. So if I am generating these sales off this product doc. Then yes just like the church. If you pay your tithe and I'm coming to church and I'm coming for Jesus and get this tenth because I'll go to church but I see you pulling up in a fifty five. Am G kitten all your chance. Look good here's my. Here's an undone. My kids here is undone. But I'm sitting in this Pew I'm trying to get Jesus you gotta justify what it is that you're doing why you're doing nothing that this is the situation. That Colin Kaepernick is found themselves here and he put himself herself this position because of his voice cause his platform for his election to be this poster child for the cost. So when that comes to play the responser office's responsibility is great. I got a couple of things to say one. No matter who you are you can give. It's called it three ts time. Talent treasure you figure out what you have. Everyone has one of those streams so figured that out one too. I get tired of the whole narrative of police. Brutality howdy is what's destroying our community at most bother numbers you could say is to six leading cause of us at most and they say that's even a stretch but you the top five is accidental deaths including drownings heart disease cancer D- homicide and you talk about suicide and we pick tough. The we skipped top five to six so we can sell something and we're selling something. That is agitating now. Only those who we encounter in the police force which a lot of them are us but more importantly it puts us it puts our emotional state in a place of trigger so that we go out there and we that close to the edge because we believe in the ghost in that blue uniform. I get mad when all of that culminates until you put some damn shoes and saying what am AH safer. Streets put shoes out and I must say in the streets with a cabinet shoe. But there's still an agenda it does. This is agenda. We're out of time. TJ But. Here's what I think and I said this at the outset at the very beginning to this it was always about cabinet. Yes and so whatever sponsors out of that. And what has this the shoe deal and again. That's still all about capping Bernice. Did he know what was going to lead to a shoe deal. No did he think it was going to lead to something. Good for cabinet. And his brand being celebrity and being able to profit off of being smarter who allegedly stood up for his people. Yes he did. I don't like it. I want him back with locking Wiley. LAVAR ARRINGTON is back with us. We're joined now by Fox. NBA Jim Jackson time now for Dardanelles Question Today Takeaway Homeboy Sarah the NBA where some players. If fans haven't been in the holiday they spirit this week yesterday. Cow Larry Guy with a patriots fan who reportedly told them to stop whining and Thomas actually just got suspended. Two Games for going into the stands to deal with the seventy sixers fan over the weekend feels like player. They're getting into a fans more than ever want to ask you. Guys players are being senses. Yes I do but you all expected that had. I'm an old fuddy duddy my long. I think they're being way too sensitive. I'm saying no I'M GONNA say they're dealing with conditions that none none of us dealt with in our plan careers obviously us being up here talking broadcaster. They're all first generation social media. Now why is that. Come into play when we play all. You had to do your doorbell. When the neighbor came by with begging ask cousins is trying to get autographs and then that Sunday you check the paper order to highlight show and it was like five channels and that was it so we were inundated with negativity now? They're embarrassed they have their there misteps for millions billions to watch too mean to laugh at so when they walk into the arena when they walk into the stadium. They're not like us. We were empty almost all my name's eight neighbors tell you drew my law wrote off police coming in. I don't need you over here ever because I know what that comes with but now when you walk Aug. Stadium over four and you see somebody do some. Don't push me because the eight and social media got these etch which so what I'm seeing right now is not sensitivity. We all have a reserve tank. There's is just getting filled up before they even step into arena. I'M GONNA say it is overly sensitive you you still got to be able to deal with the fanatic which makes the fan but I'm a little step further with your social media example because I think that this is what's playing being a major part from this perspective is the desensitize decertification of the fan to the player. The barrier of entry has has changed. There is no real reverence when I see oh my gosh. There's Jim Jackson right there. Oh there's Marcellus Wiley like you see them out but there is no a real contact. There's no like I know who he is. I know what he's got going on. I know everything about right. There's no history so whenever these guys on twitter and instagram. Doing all these different things. Those phase can hit us up right now. Boo in-between brains this other so there is no that level of respect or reverence or even fair or intimidation it doesn't exist and now these athletes have to deal with that barrier being there anymore. What let me take it a step further that you took its yes? They are more sensitive but young. People in general are more sensitive in today's world so this is a microcosm microcosm of what's going on in society with social media. Okay especially driving but if you look at the NBA in general. We've had instances of this happening before four. Okay and when I was in the league ninety five Vernon Maxwell went up into the stands in Portland okay with a fan and punched him in the face. Not A fan. said he didn't say anything but at the time Varona said his wife had abortion. She lost her baby and the Fan said something. He went up in their K.. We had it Madison Palace in two thousand four. Okay now we've had here so what I think happens now especially with young fans they feel they have a voice and that's in society is not just in the sports arena. They feel they can say whatever they want and get away with it now players like I remember when I was planning to play it up in Seattle fans has something I went on. I didn't understand but I was frustrated at the time. Okay we were losing and he kept running off at the mouth and I said something so. It's not anything new to the industry but but we were able to see it a lot more right now in real time and what it is because of what's going on in society was a little bit different for basketball players. This is the intimacy level as well you can put your feet on the court like you had that amount of access on in a football stadium. Interact were hockey or baseball. Glass up in hockey a little dangerous for basketball salvo. Give me something to think about Mars and I'm usually obsess about social media. But you made me think about this social media aspect of it that I hadn't considered in terms of these guys are on it and it's because of their addiction in our diction the social media and there's less patience and tolerance and the attacks all now seem far more personal in the arena China because the attacks on social media are often very personal. And so you when you hear those voices now it triggers you back to things you've read over social media that a very personal but I will say this to the athletes. They have to be careful here. You're making millions of dollars because of the fanaticism and fanaticism leads to people being extra that the people in that arena are fanatics. And they're going to say something you've got to remember the money you're making. What solve the quote from Isaiah Isaiah Thomas saying you know? He was re protecting his dignity. ignity I'm like how some jackass in the stands. Have any control over your dignity you know. Here's the thing for you go. Oh Yeah I ah. I don't agree with going into stand. But here's my here's what you take the power back you go right to usher or somebody in their sort of this. Would you say. Get Him out now. That's frustrating as it can be at time depending on what that person says the power now lies within you to get the Monitor because the minute you cross that threshold and going to the stands but some GonNa Happen to you but I think with most and I'm sorry we're out of time ever with most NBA arenas to me. There's only a handful of sections that are really in shouting dislikes and they you should have ushers hire five people police that and run the people out of the recent players. Don't even have to get involved joined again. You by Lavar Arrington Jim Jackson time now for the most fearless discussion today are yesterday. ESPN's Jeremy Foster published a story detailing the dilemma facing using exiled all pro receiver Antonio Brown. The story paints a troubling set of circumstances that could prevent Brown from ever returning to the NFL. Fowler's reporting suggests Brown's abilities as a football player allowed him to escape the consequences of bad behavior since childhood and that in recent months Brown has sought counseling lead to correct his self destructive behavior follows pieces thorough and well worth reading. It confirmed my belief. That Brown is the todd bridges of football a child star ruined by the fame fortune and privilege of modern American sports. The NFL is no different from different strokes the TV show that made bridges. Gary Coleman and Dana Plato wealthy and famous all three of those child stars eventually spiraled out of control in their personal lives. Wealth fame and privilege shower. Our on young people creates delusion dysfunction and antisocial behavior. We've seen this scenario play out with Hollywood child stars for decades. The phenomenon is now starting to play out in professional sports. Modern American Professional Sports Leagues are nothing more than TV shows the NFL is the most successful show in the history of television the actors actors in the NFL NBA Major League Baseball the PGA Tour and the fight game are now much bigger stars than traditional TV stars of yesteryear and today. Hey we should not be surprised. Antonio Brown is meeting the same fate as Lindsey Lowe Hound and the cast of different strokes famous a drug worse than crack cocaine. Hey when famous lace with performance pressure and a mammoth contract the same reaction is to do with Dave Chapelle did escape two Africa. Ab He's not taking the same route. He's falling deeper and deeper into social media abyss the ESPN story said ABC. Two thousand seventeen sixty eight million dollar out of contract extension was a turning point. Fowler wrote quote. That's when some friends and ex teammates say. The superstar behavior became more frequent. The distractions unavoidable the ability to hold time commitments. More Flimsy Brown's brother Desmond said all the fame and money can get to your head. I guess like many Athletes Athletes Blessed with unique God given physical talent Brown according to one source and Fowler Story sees himself as a business. Mogul this is the real delusion of athletic politic fame and fortune in the modern TV era it fools Brown and a bunch of other athletes into believing that there are far more than an athlete. You're six foot nine. I can dunk a basketball. Like no one has ever seen. And before four. And then you conclude you're a top-flight TV executive a thought leader on political issues and inventor of glass football helmets and educator someone who can limit eliminate humble beginnings and Emmett till's mother because someone scribbled something on your garage door at your second home because the American media is broken. Eventually Brown's problems will be blamed on. CT The truth is Brown is not hard to understand a dysfunctional childhood coupled with fame fortunate privilege in his twenties created the Milton meltdown. We're witnessing on a daily basis this the meltdown of athletes will soon be as commonplace as the crash of young Hollywood stars. Our Guys Marcellus Rolling. Yes we'll television vision for fortune and fame caused more athletes to flame out like Antonio Brown no because at the core of this is not the fame and fortune is a broken heart that came from a broken childhood which we're just seeing now example by Antonio Brown so I understand what you mean. And there's a lot of me agrees with what you're saying because you're porn cosmetics of fame and fortune to give fresh new body to his bed engine. And that's that's what we see when you see guys flame out like this but you got to also understand the people from the liberty cities of the world the comptons the Pittsburgh Bird Sales East hills of the world don't usually crash and burn because they usually don't even get up in the air. Most of those people are in that situation. And it's going to be attornal situation so for the one in two million that gets out we're going to see some flame and we're going to see some that don't and I have friends who don't everyone calls him Urkel but you know yeah that's normal well adjusted individual. But he's everybody else but didn't flame. My point is this. I don't blame the riches or fame because guess what that gives your only chance to actually fix that broken heart through. What is he doing? Antonio Brown therapy what does Antonio Brown doing now actually providing value to his life into his children's life now hopefully he can direct that in a more positive nature but the point is there's no fixing if he doesn't get from the situation that he is actually actually coming from now. He's trying to fix that. But it's it's a tough place for him to be when he doesn't have the proper guidance and direction and I'm not blaming aiming to fortunes and I'm blaming broken hardee's still trying to build over. I'll say this I I do think more players are if there isn't a better better approach to preparation of success. For these these youngsters there will be a ton more flameouts that take place I can recall so just having a a distorted vision in view of how the world worked and reality because of how gifted I was Keflavik From the time I was in high school you know which is interesting because a little bit before then you know. I couldn't get a cute girlfriend girlfriend but I wasn hand so the thing about girlfriend wasn't wasn't wasn't one of the cool kids. This another next thing you know they figure out that I'm running ninety yard touchdown. I got a forty two inch vertical. You end up being the a parade player of the year. I had all this success in in high school then it carried over into college and it gets worse in college because at least you you at home home and some of the things that take place in college or way different than what took place when you were in high school so you begin to due to really be developed in a way where you're kind of invincible and then you start adding different things to your resume based upon what. Your accomplishments are on on the court on the playing field. So I started thinking Matt. I was good looking because I had stardom in my dating dating life. I started thinking that I was a businessman because I had the finances to finance business. I started thinking a lot of things outside of what I was supposed to think of. It was taking your eyes off of the prize because you thought you had the prize and then before you you realize. Your eyes were not focused on the prize anymore. Now your career was over and that's exactly how my career I want to go back to in and that's a great point for you talk about here dysfunctional childhood. Because that's where it all comes from personal story because my sister rest in peace. She's she was five and a half years to me when she was younger in school. They thought she was slow but she was she just had ADHD but my parents never diagnosed diagnosed it because back then going to the hospital and doing things like that was kind of not with black families did so she had to struggle with that our whole life sometimes. It fluctuated up and down. She couldn't keep a job but she's a great person but because she didn't control this when she was at a young age it manifested itself once she got older when I see what. AB We're not talking about the physical part. We're talking about the mental things that he continues to do. The up and down is it by wholesome. I'm not a doctor. But it's something there from his childhood. Okay now you couple that. With the fact you come from Central Michigan. You have your own issues there but you not big time star. You come to Pittsburgh you behind hines ward then. All of a sudden stardom stardom grows. I've always said the camera and you talk about. Fame is as addictive as drugs. So now you start to do things because now you're more famous. You feel you're untouchable so you you couple that thing with the money okay with having maybe some issues from childhood football sports a lot of times. Can't separate the two Josh Gordon Sometimes. It's better that you get away from the game because if not you're still being able to do the same things so giving football back to some people is not the answer. Healing basketball is not the answer. Sometimes you need to just get away. Go get the help desk need it because to your point the money honey is great because he's taken care of his family but the money is not solving the issue that deep within Antonio Brown and that's the problem he comes from a broken home that led to the broken. How hard that I'm talking about which you're talking about a situation that once it starts to build on itself off and you have a fracture foundation? We all know is gonNA sooner or later come crumbling down. This is just the way it's doing it. Because of fame and fortune agent for our own visibility but imagine Antonio Brown's still stuck in liberty city with these same issues is shows itself in different ways we're just now privy to knowing on it like this. What if Frederick Douglass say? It's easier to build strong children to repair broken men and look. I'm a broken man. But for whatever whatever reasons and grace's mercies I was able to put myself in enough positions word at four in a row kid who I coulda went wrong. Actually he did a lot more right. But I still live with those moments in brokenhearted moments when you were growing up because what you expect and what you desire is not not sure reality and I love I load affected. You say how your career actually comes crumbling down because of you not fixing. This same thing happened to me man I I got. I got to a place where Mike Boyle world renowned trainer said. Don't come to work on a red carpet and I started to come to work on on the red carpet because I was playing through every injury. Every situation next bruce miffed so ball and bowling bowl and then one day you got hit with it and when you got hit when it was hard to come back from it because I was fractured for me here trying to prove value out here. I had so many friends of the opposite gender. I have so many parties. These are DJ. Everything still getting w sex living a life and I was only trying to cover up what was broken in here. We're seeing it right here and that's why I'm too when you gotta gotTa give him football back to fix the love your points. The only thing I think we all to some degree or broken You know things had no one has people. You'd think have the perfect childhood. They really don't everybody has issues then when you throw on to young people fame Amen Fortune. It creates a deal because most people that have success initially reached the conclusion where everything. I'm doing must be right you you why would I be having a success and then if you throw in a spiritual person and this will sound contradictory to ABC. Probably but he's a spiritual person talks about God all the Tom. Aw and the way he interprets thing. I've seen a lot of people. My God. I got no way. God would bless me like this if I were in the wrong things. These were wrong with me. There's no way and particularly when you say from what I came from. God bless me this way and see to see Lebron making the same mistake. Oh my my talk came from all. There's no way I could be wrong. I was blessed and so all this fame and fortune and adulation and all the corporations and because because the Pittsburgh sees the NFL those are major corporations that are patting you on the bat. Pat You on the back. And you're a Big Star and social media tells you a big star and all of it it just delays you ever fixing the problems that we're all born with into this world a sieve and for people like me that WHO's athletic career ended at twenty one twenty two and then started out with a five dollar an hour job out of college. We have to start addressing being the problems within ourselves earlier early which is in order to have success and to move up and again. That's why I'm saying. I think a lot of guys has in professional sports but in football football to me and I say this with affinity. It's a sport for the broken. You have to be desperate to me to play football at the highest highest highest. You have to see that as the only thing a and e even someone as talented and from a privileged family like Peyton manning he we saw himself as a football player and that's why he had so much success. Ray Lewis right the way to give for football. It's for the desperate people like me. It's like well hell. I may go work for my father and hard. I may go be sports. Writer is ease but but these football players. It's direct parallel boxers. Yes same thing though. Because if you chart a lot of the boxers whether they're international national do they come from Central America central city a lot of the same stories. You know they mirror each other. Okay this was my only only way out. I had to be able to get the fight my way onto system and because all that trauma that they've had when they were younger when they get to the big states again we're not categorizing all of them but we see a lot of the same stories in boxing that we see in football particularly from minorities who are in these situation that they flame out. Something happens during the course of their career over and over again and you can't pinpoint why and T- circle back to around to where they the bill tell you the story to tell you because it's on full display. Sometimes we don't WanNa hear it because we look at you up here and we don't see that you've I've been telling us. We had a problem all the time. Nobody cares to look back. And that's the biggest issue that guy like Antonio Brown has to deal with and why why this is something that can be prevalent or is prevalent with players. Is that once those wants. Those cracks begin to show once those issues begin to surface. Nobody wants to hear about it. They're going to replace you with another player. They're going to cut you your roster spot is gone. We're just not going to deal with so dealing with the issue is rebuke removal. It's not dealing with listening to where the problems come from. And that's what makes it a volatile with locking wildly TJ. Who's been with us? Let's move to urban. Meyer future has become a subject of intense speculation in recent weeks. According to Stephen a Smith Myers Interested in the cowboys head coaching job. The coach also has a close relationship with browns owner. Jimmy has lem and reportedly. There's a strong possibility. He ended up as the browns coach. If Freddie Kitchens gets the boot the questionnaire is better job for Urban Meyer browner cowboys browns to one you say. First browns lower we're expectations. This was a seventy nine ball may win six games this year seven games Max and the expectations are low but the roster talent is pretty hot you go to Dallas. They are a couple of years and move in at thirteen and three teen and everyone is sitting there talking about what you have to do. Super Bowl of bus and Jerry Jones ear. For what what you get more bang for your buck. If you're a Cleveland Brown coach and more importantly if you do fail this Cleveland Bella. Check even failed dear so you can fall back on. `Soft Masters this no brainer me. Go to Cleveland Man. I can go both ways with this. But I'm going to Cleveland Browns as well Clean Bambi into the playoffs as two thousand two and so so. Their expectations are as such. We haven't had a winning season or been to the playoffs in such a long time that we would take anything in you. You look at the roster unbelievable skill players top to an elite defensive line top two or three in the League secondary very good. I'm running backs top to run I. They're the best running back corner. League would Chub and Kareem Hunt and so I'm not a fan at offensive line I and I'm not a fan of Baker but would a coach like urban Meyer. Maybe that changes were Baker. Well I probably lean y'all's way but I'm going to argue the other side For the sake of being interesting look. TV Marcel is loves to say pre pass behaviors the best indicator of future behavior behavior. Yeah the browns behavior over the last twenty years pretty much says that's belichick failed. Deer check failed. Their Bella check failed their urban. Meyer can fail there now. Obviously the last twenty years the cowboys behavior. But if you go jason it just got nine years nine years I think the in that same time span. The browns are probably has seven coaches. And so you got a very good roster Dallas. I think you can run out. If it doesn't work Jerry Gotten Away Jerry screwed it up and so I think again I said here and heard him on cowherds couch a month ago. Two or go. He didn't say the browns or the call. You have to take aac said the cowboys were the call. You had to take any said that for reasons. Yeah a look. I'm going to be completely honest which I really want to know where he's going to the right guy. Don't don't forget and I couldn't say this fully when I was at my former workplace at. ESPN y'all know who total everyone. Where Jim Harbaugh was going yours truly? I knew that I have a friend. And who is a recruiter. And he works high level recruiting. These things are handled behind the scenes. You guys all know before they're made public they have to work out the deal. Deal the dentist of the world have to get involved with recruiters to make this happen. So if you really WanNa know you look at the right guy and I will make that phone call call to try. Give us a lead up before when I did it and I told her Jim Harbaugh was going people were like. That's not. That's not what you do. But I know the Intel that goes with this. If you WanNa just look at what a recruiter want out of a situation. I think that there's more power to pool for Urban Meyer without resistance in Cleveland Dan in in Dallas in Dallas. I think it would take Jerry Jones to concede some power. Is Jerry Jones. Don't do that. I doubt if he hits rock bottom was to cowboys. Having the only thing about Cleveland that concerns me is and it's a big concern. You gotta play Pittsburgh twice and you gotTa Play Baltimore twice. They're going to be good every year for years to come and you go go to the. NFC You get to play wash then you get to play the giants and you gotTa deal with the Eagles in so from that perspective division with that the Browser in an AFC. North is a lot more complex quarterbacks. NFC If you really want to Botch Jek three and build another march axes in the AFC won. Go go after that then rothlisberger coming back at thirty eight the dealers about to drive versus anywhere but the steelers are always good on defense and so. That's tough sledding. AFC Norton. Jimmy's here to help us talk about our approval. Ratings for Kirk cousins. I give me a Christmas. Was President. Marcel big dummy of the day. Man I show hate to do this but you've got to get that work Douglas. You say you'll want to show up to work. Look you showing up on the red carpet. Show up like you lay in the carpet. Highly walking down the red carpet. Play board what he said all right. Let's talk kirk cousins. who was terrible last night fall into own nine on Monday night? Football as the vikings loss to the packers even still Minnesota sold has already clinched a playoffs bar ourselves. you think cousins and the vikings make any noise in the postseason. I do actually Dow Cook coming back from that shoulder injury. Their running game. I'm just going look. They play last night one hand behind their back without doubt and cook. So you get them into the fold and they get some of that Mojo going on defense. I think her cousins enough. I think he's a franchise quarterback we're back who can they beat in the NFC poile postseason Seattle of them. Nobody Shit adult check me. Check Momento and banner you. Oh I know. I don't think they make any noise. I think you'd be in the first round of the playoffs. The vikings and kirk cousins or bolt overrated. All right uncle Jimmy. I've gotta take gonNA Kirk cousins and the Minnesota Vikings play nicotine. Let's see what the problem is. This is the reason we get on. Jimmy pay because you always trying to sit in the value of what somebody else is worth. Nothing I the way I figure right about now. You'd only person work at Fox. There's getting paid what they way. The word meat for pennies on the dollar log lists. He's GonNa put the franchise tag on. No he put the crew clears tag on. We all know you had him on as cold. Oh Jimmy the show really now have we have we all we. All we not suitable steel steel. GotTa work there night. Yeah but you know what you keep it up. Just wait till ages to get here and got them pockets. Let me tell you he. You don't like your nearly as much as you'd think he. How does this sound for? How does this sound Colin Joy? Jimmy in my case goes Vikings got. Just what the hell they paid folk you know when the to find sisters has gone. AWW livers the cousin and you heard you had a kirk cousins song. Look at the I know how to bike and France let me Teyat Kirk nuts or roasting on an open fire. Vikings lost another other gay. Minnesota had giant thoughts and their eyes. Were all aglow and now they find it hard to sleep too because they know that sad zone on his way. And there's no more quarterbacks or goodie zone is sleigh show every vikings likings fan is gonNa cry because they know the Kirk cousins will be here until the day they die. And so I'm off reading this fray you too. Vikings ran from one to ninety two. Although it's been said many himes hi many ways kirk cousins dogs to be Christmas I agree with Kirk cousins at a scout team. I drop his job performance all the way down to wait thirteen fifty two scout team. Kirk cousins I got love for since last time. We did edible love. His job. warmers huge prime. Time win over the Dallas Cowboys. Forget about that so element of role player quarterback Internet agrees with me forty nine thirty five percents dumpster fire.

"You're not necessarily catching people who are flagrantly. Driving through lights you're really trapping. People were just doing normal driving like I actually have a red light camera outstanding right now and I tried to appeal it and they came back with a big fat denial and had an easier. Time getting out of Some parking tickets trying to appeal them anyway but investigations by the Chicago Tribune. revealed a massive kickback scheme for the Chicago. Red Light Camera Program There was this. Australian company called Flex and you know. Several people went to prison. Actually after several long years of investigations and federal indictments coming down on these people So there are undoubtedly unpopular however suburbs have the city of Chicago and suburbs have come to rely on them for revenues. Didn't even though you know the argument is always. Oh well it's about safety. You know really the. It's because so much of some of these very small suburbs. A budgets have come to rely on this revenue and so in early January Controller Susana Mendoza. She announced that her office would no longer be acting as a debt collector for those suburbs of the city of Chicago does not actually rely on the controller but the cultural ever had for years been basically acting as a debt collection agency For people who were delinquent on paying their red light cameras and she said this was something that her offs could do to kind of curb the the programs. Obviously it's a total ban but she says she's doing her part and total ban bills like Brian said Unlike this sweeney bill they are coming down the pipeline And so I think momentum is building but these red light camera companies are pretty powerful and you know especially the pressure from suburban mayors. I think that's going to play a big role in whether or not we actually do see a ban this year. I think it's also worth noting here that you do here. The public safety argument however as the screws have been put to potentially these municipalities. They are being a little more open about the idea that this is a money issue for them as well and it's interesting Represented McSweeney pointed out in debate. I think it was a tribune story. From a number of years ago now where they had worked with a professor at Texas A and M and found some twenty two percent off to help my head Increase in rear end collisions. And I can tell you from personal experience when you're coming up on these intersections there well labeled there's a big sign and you can see the camera sitting up there and it does make you. Try to be hyper vigilant. But apparently people are slamming on the brakes to avoid crossing that white line and getting the ticket and therefore creating an increase in rear end collisions at these intersections. Shirley we heard the Susana Mendoza mentioned. There she's a Democrat David. Mcsweeney Republican Bipartisan effort may be against these To some extent and that's not surprising. This is this is the type of thing. Lawmakers loved him to get on because the fact that they aren't popular among the public. Anything you can you can do to show that you're you're doing something on the public's behalf at least you know that's the point they're trying to make your is bring. It'd be a popular one as I recall it. I think the vote in the house was eighty four. I four no now. There were what a couple dozen people either voted or didn't vote at all but the fact that we're only four no votes Shows how politically popular. This is. Now if I'm not mistaken it. It doesn't the red light cameras aren't approved for state wide use. We don't have any insane Makoni. For example it's just the suburbs near but causal and metro. East the the to Illinois counties across the river from Saint Louis and they were originally sold. His hand has said as a safety measure. This is to Catch a WHO runs through yellow lights in here in Springfield as you approach a intersection and the light is changing. If you you just stop and wait because you know somebody who's just getting a red light is going to go through on. I confess I've done that too. It's I guess. Part of the culture of driving in Springfield but in many instances and as matter of fact I believe one of the allegations against senator former senator sandoval was that he pressured people at the Department of Transportation to okay putting these red light cameras were. There was not the documentary evidence of traffic safety as being important in that particular intersection hand. I let me go back to one argument that I have heard made in support of these in the past. And that is that the free up officers for other work that Maybe there's limited resources on the police department and they can always have somebody sitting at every intersection just making sure people follow the law. So you know that that there is that in some ways that they help in public safety in an overall way. Well I mean a lot of things A lot of technology a lot of automation They CLAIM TO FREE UP HUMAN CAPITAL. And of course paying someone To be an active police officer and of course later on paying their pension that is extremely expensive. But if you'RE GONNA IF YOU'RE GONNA SAY WE'RE GONNA improve public safety by doing this automation thing. I would hope that someone is on the other end actually reviewing the footage and calling balls and strikes in a fair way because again like a a lot of people are just ensnared in In the regular course of driving like normal people like people. You can't always stopped right at the white line. I think maybe my dad would disagree but things just happen things. Come out of nowhere Sometimes the lights. The timing of the yellow light is off. I think the Tribune also had an investigation about that. Several years back but yellow lights. Yeah exactly yeah. This goes to a point I think is you can look at. I think there's a sort of almost a broader philosophical issue here and I'm reminded of that episode of Seinfeld George Costanza is driving and there were birds in the road and they're supposed to get out of the way. We have a deal with the birds. When you're driving up. They fly out of the way. That's the deal. And they didn't and he ended up hitting a bunch of these birds and I kind of feel that is why we don't have a big brother traffic system. I mean with the smartphones. We have with the GPS technology. The I pass toll collection. It could be that if you get from one toll booth to the next or toll sensor. They don't really have as many booths anymore. But you know you could automatically get a ticket because you're not supposed to go from one hundred fifty nights straight one to the sixty third street one x amount of minutes and you know it could be that we could have these automated devices just issuing tickets left and right everywhere but that's not the deal we have in our society. There's expected that most people will behave safely most of the time. If someone's doing something crazy or agree GIS like that. Spate of hundred mile an hour plus tickets. We heard that the state police was issuing think. We talked about that a few months ago. Fine that that's something that should be addressed. And that is worth investing the human capital of an actual state trooper police officer going out there to enforce that but I think that you know. There's a reason don't have a sort of totalitarian surveillance. State that monitors every every moment of driving compliance with the law. Just because as we were all saying I think that you know you have to allow just have a little more allowances for the ebb and flow of of everyday travel. And it's just not the society. I think any people wanna live in but when we all have autonomous vehicles we won't have to worry about it and let me let me move on. We did mention corruption involved with red light cameras. And there's a broader look at ethics in state government right. Now Hannah. There's a commission that's been formed has a lot of People who have been around government a long time who are involved with this commission. They've met met again this week. Anything going on with that at this point as far as we know of you know we're GonNa see legislation or are they singling out any type of area that they want to try to improve on. Yeah we've seen I think it's been five meetings of this drank commission on ethics and lobbying reform. They face a march thirty first deadline to present a report to the governor on in legislative leaders on suggested changes to state law to kind of root out corruption and tighten up other areas of ethics law This the latest meeting. This week was mercifully of lot shorter than the other five. Almost five our meetings we've seen it was about like it can hold elective office at the same time. I think especially those of us who are not a super familiar with like some of the tiny southwest suburban towns like when the FBI raided Cook County Commissioner. Just Topolski's town In September everyone kind of learned that. Oh not only. Is He commissioner a Cook County? He's also the mayor of this tiny little town called summit similarly state Senator Steve Landeck. He's the mayor of Bridgeview and then we also have a newish state reps. That was sworn in last summer. A Republican from Rosemont Red Stevens. Who has been mayor of? Rosemont for about the last decade or so in his father had been the original mayor of Rosemont Donald Stevens. Donald Stevens Conventions are Rosemont for fifty years. And so they're basically. The commission heard like is it is inherently wrong is inherently bad and the Constitution and most of Illinois Statute has a pretty lousy fair approach as long as those two offices don't conflict than it's fine but of course it's what does conflict mean are their contracts to be had. Are there any number of things can come up? And so no one's really watching this thing. I think there was a question too representative from the attorney. General's office like. Are you guys being proactive. And the answer was will hay with eight thousand units of Local Government Illinois by far the most of any state in the nation. We can't really be watching all the time. There's just it's impossible and so this is the latest hearing. There's been one touching on other areas of government ethics laws and. I guess we'll just see you. There's another month until that report is due and then I guess Legislation will have to come out of it. Let me move on as well because there are some other legislation with that. We've been following this week and I call it sex education at the start of the show. Brian but They've been giving it some different names and there are a couple of at least i. Don't WanNa call him competing Bills out there but there's some different legislation that would try to accomplish some similar things. Yeah and they they refer to it as health education but I think that you know the emphasis is on what I think those of us who grew up a decade or so a plus would call sex education and what is different about. What at least one of the big proposals. That got a lot of attention this week. Because of a news conference in the capital it's called the reject and won't get into the acronym but basically it would mandate comprehensive age appropriate sex or health education in public schools for Grades K through twelve and a couple of things are interesting about that one. If the idea is making it mandatory currently there's language in statute that says schools may have this. This would change it to schools shall have it and the idea of making it in all grades is something different and again. The they do emphasize there's age appropriateness so for kids in kindergarten through grade to it would be looking at things like personal safety. Identifying trusted adults the children's can go to and respecting each other as you get a little bit older grades three through five. There's more talk about healthy relationships and bullying and harassment Even getting into puberty body image sexual orientation gender identity gender expression things like that and then the as children really grow into young adults grades six through twelve. There's more talk about things like consent and harassment abuse violence as well as Contraception and medication and Sexually Transmitted Infections and how to prevent them so it would be comprehensive. There is another version of this legislation out there that would be all ages but would not have that mandatory component to it and I should add that parents at least under the first one would still have the right to opt their children out of this education if they did not want them to participate a charlie anytime you use the word mandatory. Even if he does have that opt out provisions. It's always going to be controversial. Yeah and I think that was one of the arguments raised by representatives of school districts. Who said you know? We don't disagree with the idea. We think this is very good and children should be educated in these areas in inappropriate way from the time they start school. But WHO'S GONNA pay for it is another unfunded mandate in school districts have? Lord. I don't know they. They have probably hundreds of them out there to teach this. Teach that do this do that. And the state lasers on them and then the state says. Yeah but we'RE NOT GONNA pay for you figure out how to pay for you gotta do but we're not going to help you financially on it and Brian I I would imagine. A lot of schools do similar types of Curriculum right now but it may not be laid out the way that that this bill requires at and it again. It does not have that requirement that all the schools offer something. Yeah in some schools may but there we certainly heard about some that. Don't think that one of the voices we used at the top of the show was a high school senior named trae. Graham who identify as Queer in the news conference this week and said that they did not get any of this sort of education about their sexual identity and healthy relationships and that sort of thing so There may be schools that are doing parts of this but the aim here is to make it standardized and comprehensive across the state but school districts would be able to tailor their own curriculum correct. Yeah I don't have the language of the bill in front of me. I think there would be some of that but there is a lot of there are a number of things that are sort of like this shelby will include in touch on these various things. So I I think the idea is that you know if if for example hypothetically if there's a more you know conservative area the state where these issues are not discussed as much in public discourse. I think that that you know the aim is to make sure that education and Instruction is getting even into those places where people in the community might raise eyebrows about it. We've been watching the presidential race. Hearing a lot about prescription drug prices. There is a renewed effort at the Capitol to try to tackle these prices as well as medications and some lawmakers I believe they may have held a news conference on that this week right State REP WILL ALREADY CHICAGO. And our local state senator from Springfield. Andy Manar around Springfield should say. They teamed up last year to do a bill. That basically kept insulin crisis and They're teaming up again to try to create a new state board. That would basically say to drum companies. Hey this is the Max the upper limit that Illinois will pay for you know x drug and go through a list of drugs that People depend on and You know they say it's not like mandatory that the drug companies would charge less than that. But you know there's a certain element of the the power of shame saying like okay we are. We're saying that Illinois are not going to pay more than this and if this drug company does indeed charge Illinois that much then the public pressure and then also part of their bill would be Creating some sort of commission that would study the issue like we see all the time. We're GONNA have a blue ribbon panel to study the issue but this is really a big deal and I i. I've heard about a couple of other bills. Coming on the pipeline. That would try to reign. In the cost of prescription. Drugs will already tried to do similar things last year. But you know we were already doing a whole lot in springfield and but this is a perennial issue. It especially as the debate over Healthcare in general redesigned in the president at Democratic presidential race. This is just a hot topic because it really really does affect people's lives and really only about a minute here left handed but I remember in the past. There was discussions about drug buying clubs. Where maybe the state would negotiate drug prices? All of that type of thing. We're not they're not talking about getting into things like that at this point I've heard of an importation bill that would basically legalize formalize away that the state could buy drugs from other countries like Canada but there are safety concerns with that and even some of the groups that you would think the onboard with that bill are really not because I got safety concerns. Let's go to our notes from the Field Shirley. Let's start with you. The Attorney Registration Disciplinary Commission is moving to Disbar Rod Blagojevich. Now you might think we'll didn't he lose his law license when he was convicted No because the way it works is his law. License was suspended until all his appeals. Run out and his appeals ran out and the commission which oversees the disciplinary actions involving the legal profession is now moving to disbar him and it's likely that occur although takes several months after they have they had a hearing this week and after the hearing it takes several months ago. You know to make the decision but not to worry because Blagojevich is now offering videotaped messages for sale through a website. And if you WANNA pay fifty bucks seventy five bucks one hundred bucks. You could get rich to Lucia happy birthday to one of your best friends or maybe one of you were standing. Me's if you're looking for gift idea and Hannah it's kind of a legacy thing now but of course. A political organizations especially in Chicago Thrive on Legacy so the Thirteenth Ward Organization. Which of course is House Speaker Bike? Madigan's longtime organization put out a palm card. Which is kind of like a piece of campaign literature that you hand out near polls saying like these are our preferred candidates it off. Cook County State's attorney Kim Fox and also a Metropolitan Water Reclamation district commissioner Kim dupleix who was also former state rep and so the palm port essentially left else. Two of the three black candidates black female candidates that the Cook County Democratic Party had slated and so people were left kind of scratching their heads. Unfortunately people were eager to talk to me about this earlier in the week. And then some They clammed up yesterday which I thought was very interesting and Brian as there has been more attention to getting a diverse range of people serving in office the Illinois Senate took a step this week to codifying. The idea that campaign funds can be used for childcare. As long as it's well someone who's doing governmental or political work Spokesman for the State Board of elections says when it's been asked about this in the past it said it's okay to use campaign money in this way. This would just make sure that that is put into law. That's our time for this edition of State Week. Our panel included Charlie Wheeler Brian mackey. And Hannah Meisel of the daily line.

Provocative antidote to the self contained opinion bubbles that dominate political debate. It is the fourth week of January and this week the impeachment trial of Donald Trump got underway. The first day was devoted to procedural questions would witnesses be called to testify and when the house? Democrats leading impeachment argued with the President's attorneys Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer moved repeatedly to seek witnesses and documents. Each of his motions was defeated on a party. Line basis a handful of Senate Republicans say they are opened witnesses but they want to wait until after the extensive presentations from the house and the President before they decide whom to call and how. This order of events has precedent. It's how witnesses were handled during bill. Clinton's impeachment twenty one years ago before we get to that stage. The senators are supposed to sit and silently. Listen to forty eight hours of presentations spread over succession days a structure that is keeping the Senate quite unusually in session six days a week and on Tuesday well past midnight talk about the trial. Let's bring in our left right and center panel has always. Your Center joined by rich lowry editor of National Review on the right on the left. Elizabeth Brunner Good New York Times. Hello Hi Josh Josh. Liz have the Democrats been making a compelling case for the president's removal so so Democrats have been making the case that they have and I do think they've been making the most of the evidence that they've been able to pull together. The Republicans obviously are not cooperating In fact finding which means that there's limitations on what? Democrats are able to marshal in their favor and there are other reasons that Democrats are maybe hesitating to pull as much testimony as they could but that being said Removal is a really high bar and I think the Democrats are going to have to demonstrate a bit more than they have so far to really put that case over the top. I think the case they're making a compelling but it's not new. It's the same case that we've known in broad strokes since September and October. The president misappropriated the foreign policy of the United States for his own personal purposes. He sent his own personal attorney over Ukraine to make demands that were explicitly not on behalf of the United States but on behalf of Donald Trump. Personally and he used resources that are at his disposal as president. The ability to host meetings A resource the technically was not even legally at his disposal withholding aid that he was legally obligated to disperse to them because Congress had appropriated it. He nonetheless did that. He did it for a personal purpose. And so I. I think we know this but the case the house managers are making maybe necessarily duplicative because these facts I mean we filled in a few details here and there but mostly this is stuff we've known for months so I think it sort of foreseeable that this is not going to change a lot of minds right I I would say Adam Schiff but I don't have a huge regard for as really been quite effective. I mean he's a really good prosecutor is head and shoulders above all the other house managers and if they just had six hours to make the case involving Adam Schiff. I don't think they would have lost thing. Maybe gained a little because the rest of his pretty numbing. I think they've been strongest making the case for the witnesses they've been weakest Making a case for why they didn't try to go get the witnesses themselves or strongest saying that this happened in this was wrong. Week is saying that the the only way all them accountable is to remove him. So it's it's a process that doesn't really have much drama at the end of the day because we know what the ultimate outcome is going to be which is why the media is focused on this subsidiary. Question of witnesses where. There is a little drama. Because we don't know what's going to happen with that and you can count at least three. Republicans you can see voting for witnesses next week but you need four is hard to know who the the fourth would be so. It wouldn't shock me. I don't know how it's going to the witness questions. Turn out but it wouldn't shock me if he's acquitted by the end of next week. Do you have a sense of what those internal politics are among Senate Republicans because I mean the four names if they're going to be four. Republicans who demand witnesses presumably is going to be Susan Collins. Lisa Murkowski Mitt Romney and Lamar Alexander and Lamar. Alexander is sort of talked about is the biggest wildcard. He's you know. He's very senior politician as Senate `institutionalised he's also closed with Mitch. Mitch McConnell do you have a sense of I mean because when Susan Collins Talks about this she basically says she wants to hear from witnesses but she wants to follow this process? To what extent is that sincere and to what extent does that really have four? Republicans behind it because it sounds. I mean the White House appears to be acting like they expect that. Republicans may force witnesses to be called. I don't know how sincere is the way it's set up. It quite possibly could have a very senate result to this. Which is they'll just be a vote on whether they should have witnesses and it's possible you got four. Republicans for that. Certainly Susan Collins is going to vote for that. But then you'd actually have to have a vote that can be amended on which says you can have. And that's where you can see. Poison pill amendments to say a a measure saying we're going to hold we're GonNa have John Bolton you know calling for Hunter Biden or Joe Biden. I would think Democrats should take hunter. Biden John Bolton trade in a minute I mean Hunter Biden sort of a sad sack but only knows about Ukraine is that he got paid a lot of money for not really good reason but we know that plus people probably feel sympathy for Democrat suit matter the most for Joe Biden at the moment we're whereas John Bolton was at the center of this and his What he says will be played up as one of the most explosive You know a piece of testimony last ten years and you can easily guess he's GonNa be very harsh about what the president did hear. What have you made of this trade discussion with Joe? Biden ended up shooting down later in the week. I mean I I understand the logic of what rich lays out there but I think if this were a court trial you wouldn't call Hunter Biden because Hunter Biden is not relevant witness. He doesn't know anything about the president's behavior. And so I think that you know the to the extent. Democrats are taking this seriously as a trial to agree to that. You know for political reasons. I think you know it it. It creates a sideshow which is one reason not to do it. It does create a side show. But I feel like the Biden's are in a position at this point where there's no way not to have a side show because it also creates aside show To refuse to address What's going on with Hunter Biden? And what has happened with? Hunter Biden specially as trial. Where's on Along with the Democratic primary more and more questions about Biden corruption are gonNA come up. They've already come up. People do have questions about Hunter Biden and the Biden sort of resolutely trying to suffocate this by refusing to address it head on I think only adds fuel to the fire and the sense that there's not a lot of transparency around what's gone on with Hunter Biden. So is it a sensible to have a Biden Bolton Trade You know I don't really think so for the reasons you point out. It's not going to add a lot to the impeachment proceedings but holding Biden back and refusing to address. These issues around corruption directly is also going to have An inflammatory effect. I think in the long run I I don't know about. I mean so Liz's your first call him at the New York Times. I congratulations Is is on these these issues and I think you lay out a number of of of good arguments about things you know. Hunter Biden getting appointed to the Amtrak Board when he had no apparent expertise that was related to that except that his father was the vice president And there there are these issues. The problem is that the stuff that president trump has accused. The Biden's of doing is completely separated from anything that the Biden's actually did. It's basically made up account of what Joe Biden was up to pressuring people in Ukraine to shutdown investigations when Joe Biden was actually pushing for a more robust anti-corruption push in Ukraine. And so the problem is the well. I think you're right that there are real problems. Surrounding under Biden's lobbying activities. And then you know you can. We can also talk separately about stuff related to to Delaware banks and that sort of thing When when you see allow that discussion to be combined with the president's essentially made up discussion about what the Biden's are up to a grand legitimacy to conspiracy theories and nonsense that the president is throwing at them. I certainly understand why the Biden's are unwilling to engage in that. I understand that as well and I think that You know Joe Biden has good reasons for not wanting to go down this road but I think the issue is that it's difficult for voters to distinguish between the good reasons for not wanting to discuss and discount accusations of corruption and potentially bad reasons. That's one of the successful parts of this campaign of trump's against Biden is that it has introduced the issue onto the record and the issue of Biden's corruption as you point out does have ridiculous and unfounded aspects to it but then it also has aspects that are much less ridiculous and much more worrying so for the Biden's it's going to be a matter of Trying to address this. I think in a way that helps voters distinguish between those two and at the end of the day. I don't think there's An answer that the Biden's can give that's going to clear the whole thing up rich. Do you think the president's getting this to stick. I mean it seems like an effort to replay the Hillary Clinton playbook the differences that you know Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton had a four decade track record to build on that sort of made it easy to stick accusations of them. I think it's harder with Joe Biden. I think that's right. Yeah Hillary had Thir- thirty years of being radioactive there that that made it easier for people to believe the worst certainly for Republicans to believe the worst. I do think we'll hear more about this and I don't think Joe Biden himself as his corrupt or fired. This process pressure to fire this prosecutor corrupt reasons but he does represent the worst aspects of our public life which is people around famous and prominent people get rich for no very good reason and this is true of hunter. It's true of other people around Joe. Joe Biden on on the question of relevance. I think there's enough relevance for public to hang their hats on to to say they want hunter because it's become an issue was there any legitimacy in wanting to investigate Barack Obama and house manager. Say No and the White House team says yes. So Hunter has some relevance to that but it seems to me the question is not could there have been relevant reason to task the Ukrainians to investigate the issue. I think the answer. That is still no But the better question is did. Donald Trump have a valid reason for wanting them to do that and so the idea that Donald Trump did this out of a concern about foreign corruption. Donald trump is literally out there saying that the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act should be repealed because it is an unfair disadvantage to US businesses. That they are not allowed to pay bribes abroad. So even if even if you could and I think it would be extremely thin to say that you say that it was an appropriate. Us policy priority for the US to to to push the specific investigation of corruption in Ukraine. That was obviously not Donald Trump's priority. If he was making that claim it would have been an obvious pretext because the president is objectively pro foreign corruption and he focused on this because of Joe Biden. That that's obvious but the the what the at a White House team is making the case. I think they're wrong. They're saying it has to be crime involved in teach me can't impeach over piece of power that's wrong but they're making the prudential case. I think is stronger when they say. No presidential impeachment ever has not involved a bright line violations of criminal law. And that's not here and then when it's not there you do get into a murkier area of subjective intent. I I read your column on this this week. You said that removing the president over this would be insane and it seems to me. Your argument here is self limiting. Basically say that you know it would be insane to remove the president in part because of the public opinion about so close it would be incredibly divisive and poisonous to our politics but those of course are also reasons that the president will not be removed the because the public opinion is so divided. You cannot Marshall Republican votes for his removal if Republicans voting to remove him it would be because he was extremely unpopular and it would no longer be so divisive. And so you know I mean you and your colleague Ramesh Pinero at at National Review is split on this and Ramesh says that this you know the the political fact that the president won't be removed as actually a reason to be more inclined to impeach over these issues to say you know. What is the risk here? Do we want more elected officials to go on the record to say that using the resources of the federal government for these personal is improper or do we want fewer saying. That's I mean what do what do you say to the fact that because of this this exact political limitation that makes the impeachment a more reasonable choice because it sends a message about what the president did. I think it's reasonable everything. Ramesh believes is his very reasonable On any given issue I disagree on this. I just don't think this is the only way to hold him accountable or the only way to get people to say it was wrong. In fact by upping the stakes of it at the margins you might have even fewer Republicans are being willing to say. It's wrong because they fear the consequence would be you know a slippery slope to moving him but his you expose what happened. You make a case it's wrong. They're all sorts of other things you can do. I may be the only one in the country. Believes it's bizarre to invite. The president who thinks is such a dire threat to the public interest and to the nation that he must be removed tomorrow to come into your chamber for a majestic setting for to give his view on on the state of the world. Why it seems to me you would I not invite him then? Try to step escalation laterally trying to remove them so there are all sorts of interbranch comedy. You can deny them and you can censor him without getting yourself in the ridiculous position of really saying you want him removed ten months before the election and this will be the the backstop like for next couple of days. We'll hear the only way to hold them accountable. Remove him when he's never laid out removed. They'll say oh. You held accountable because he was impeached. Because it's a form of censure so I think the lesson of the Republican impeachment. That was very similar and a lot of respects. You know had an a no hope impeachment in the Senate and this one is that this isn't a good model and it's it's better if you want to censor a president just to censor them. Well Liz I mean one difference between this impeachment and the Clinton Impeachment. Twenty one years ago is that while the polling is not strong enough to actually lead to the president's removal here. It's a lot stronger than it was. Then you know you pulling in the high forties Saying that the president should be removed and instead of closer to thirty. And so I'm wondering. Do you think that this has been useful exercise? Do you think That it acts as a significant center of the President You said that at the outset of this discussion That the Democrats would need to do more to push their case over the top. What else is it that they could or should have been doing that. You think would've moved. More of public opinion made this more effective accountability measure for the president. I mean it's difficult. Because it's a protracted process as you pointed out it's taking place over several hearings and many hours to it's difficult for the average voter on to sit down and watch it in its entirety. I think Nancy Pelosi in her handling played. It pretty smart. I think in general the public is well ish informed on on what the core issue is. They're probably could have been a little bit more effort on on that front at clarifying. What trump is actually guilty of in the ways in? Which isn't isn't distinct from the other bad things. Everyone already suspects him of but in general I mean. That's the challenge. The Democrats have here is sort of getting across the average American Not only what happened but why. It's a big problem in how it fits in with the democratic narrative about trump being in general a sort of corrupt self serving leader whose putting American foreign interests It at risk with those habits. Let's take a break. I'll be back with rich lowry of National Review and Elizabeth. Burning of the New York Times to talk about public opinion and the twenty twenty race. You're listening to left right and center. You're hearing from our left right and center and we want to hear from you to tweet us at L. RC KCRW and download the free kcrw APP to listen to left right and center on demand back again with left right and center. I'm your host Josh Barrow on the right of rich lowry editor of national review on left as Elizabeth Brunette columnist at the New York. Times when I say I don't think the impeachment proceedings have changed many minds. I'm not just making an anecdotal observation. Polling on impeachment has been remarkably stable. There was one big move in October when House Democrats said they would proceed with impeachment. That move coalesced. Nearly all democrats in an increased number of independence around the idea that Donald Trump should be removed from office. And since then not very much. The fivethirtyeight tracker shows support for removing trump. Hasn't budged from forty seven to forty nine percent range over the last three months to talk about public opinion on impeachment and also the State of the two thousand twenty election race we're joined now by RL Edwards Levy reporter and pulling editor at Huffpost high. Aro I so do I have that. Characterization broadly right that this has been very stable since we started this process in October. Yeah absolutely I mean. I think when we saw the real movement on impeachment was way back when the Democrats in Congress finally decided okay. This is an action that we're going to take. And at that point you did see especially among Democrats but even outside of the party opinions swinging toward impeachment and since then basically it's sort of ossified on very familiar partisan lines and at this point you have this fairly what looks like an immovable status where Democrats basically are wholeheartedly for impeachment and removal of Republicans are against it and many of the people who might still be persuadable which there are those people but they're also the least likely to be paying attention at this point in the process. It seems to me like this is part of a broader trend that the president's own approval rating has been remarkably stable throughout his presidency. Most presidents really have significant moves up and down and approval. The president has moved in a very narrow band. He's been unpopular but he doesn't get a lot more and less unpopular. Do what the reason is for that. Is there a structural change in American politics? That means that people don't change their minds as much as it's something specific to Donald Trump. What's with all this noise and our politics? What what is this? What is with this sort of weird stability in the political situation? I think that there are a couple of reasons for that. One is I think something that underlies even Donald Trump or you saw this with the Obama Administration and even a few administrations before that which is that increasingly opinions. Are Polarized. There was a time in American history. Where a president could have majority approval among the opposite party? And it's very very very hard to imagine that happening. At this point you know. The last election was the first time in a very long time that we'd seen who unpopular candidates running against each other rather than two candidates who are generally liked. So there's this sort of real partisan stasis it's hard to work off of the other thing beyond that is so I don't think we've seen any of the sort of events that might actually Cataclysmic shakeup the president's approval. You know there hasn't been a gigantic Economy crash there hasn't been a gigantic foreign policy Event or some sort of you know. God Forbid Act of terrorism. Something like that so you haven't seen anything. That's sort of capable of breaking through that stasis. I mean there was a scandal that was significant enough that it led to the president's impeachment. I mean I think with a normal president. Wouldn't we think of that as the sort of cataclysmic event that might move these numbers? Yeah that's true and I think maybe one way of characterizing that would be to say something that breaks through that partisanship. Where's this is something? Where your opinion of scandal about President trump I think is going to depend a great deal on what your opinion of trump was before that. And you know maybe that itself is a sea change in American politics. But I think that's where we are right now. This stability strikes me as missed opportunities on both sides. I mean I rich to look at the Republican side. The president presides over an economy that is objectively quite strong that subjectively people in surveys report. Unusually high level of satisfaction with the economy. It's remarkable to me that over three years. The president has failed to seize opportunities to turn that integrator popularity and some of the things you know. Sometimes when Democrats will talk about this. They'll propose things that would be very unpopular with Republican base. You know it's it's not that he should have embraced obamacare or that he should have you know. Done some comprehensive immigration reform. Not Not that he should have done those things as a political matter. I mean but there are other things he could have done some big infrastructure package right. Now he's talking about as as always does about. Maybe we're GONNA have another tax cut package and it's going to end up. Being something that will be with Democrats in the house. He could instead attach himself to something like the the Romney Bennett proposal to further expand the child tax credit. That's something that you could conceivably get through a divided Congress that you could then wave at voters as a as a tax cut for the middle class that has improved their lives. He seems to have no instinct at all to find these ways to to get the Democrats on the wrong side of wedge issues. Do things that would be popular with more than just the forty percent forty two percent of the country. That says they like him. Well the first key to a budging. His numbers would be acting more presidential. Which is not capable of and doesn't have any interest and doing and then it would be taking advantage of his his Heterodox as as you say to pursue some interesting altar legislative alternates with Democrats or at least a wrongfooting them by making proposals or Republican usually wooden and he does have an instinct towards doing this in theory. He just doesn't have any idea of how to carry out and practice in the only the only initiative that that really qualifies is. He did get a lot of democratic votes. We talked about last week for the US MCA. But otherwise he just hasn't been able to carry off anything. And then the flip side of this for for Democrats. Liz Is that I think that they sort of look at trump who they see. Is this obviously horrible? President in person and yet they can't seem to get his approval rating under forty in the last two years. Yeah and I mean that's a signal of something that's going on in American politics writ large. I think it probably has a lot to do with the ways in which Democrats have approached. Trump voters I think that those efforts Wile well intended by Democrats have kind of produced. Irwin increasingly strong resistance So every as sort of overture Democrats make to try to diminish trump's support Ends up kind of inoculating Trump supporters against further modes of persuasion. I think another problem is intimate Kratz. Themselves are torn on how to handle trump supporters. I think some Democrats feel like we Democrats we. The left ought to try to win them over and convince them to support left candidates but other Democrats feel like these These trump voters are just reprobate centers. And we shouldn't be trying to win them over because incorporating them into a dim base be toxic another area where we're seeing this unusual stability I think is Democratic presidential primary. They're different polls will vary here and there. But if you look at the polling averages Joe Biden has not at any point given up his lead in the polling average Area what do you think is the state of that race right now? People are talking about a Bernie Sanders surge and has moved up in the polls although he is still in the fivethirtyeight trackers seven points behind Joe Biden in the national polling Yet you have prediction markets that give Bernie Sanders. Nearly as high chance of winning the nomination as Joe Biden so is this. Is this a stable race with Biden. Comfortable lead the hallway or is or is it less stable than it looks I mean prediction markets will never be by choice for looking at Sort of where to start measuring the state of the race. I think what's happening right now. Is We're in a place where it's very hard to tell what's going to happen. I think you know Joe Biden. The majority of polling still shows him up ahead. There's a lot of polling especially in Iowa indicates that it's very very very close in that. I don't think you know any of the top tier of candidates there which is Biden Sanders and then Warren and Buddha judge anyone pulling that off. I don't think it would be a total total surprise. What you do see I think in that the one thing that pulls have been consistent on is that this is a race with enormous potential for volatility. The you what you see is that people are considering multiple candidates. A lot of people are not completely locked in and so I think you know Iowa look this point like it could really go at any number of directions. I think once we see what happens in Iowa others lost potential for things to reshuffle. You know I think Biden comes in with the advantage of having been some degree of a front runner for a very long time now and not really seeing. His numbers budge that much but at the same time. I think it's pretty easy to imagine a scenario where you know. He's not a strong enough front runner for that to actually carry through once. People Start Voting Luis. Do you think Bernie's position is stronger than than the national polls would indicate. I think there's a chance of that I think that the national polls are You know I'm cautiously optimistic about them. let's put it that way. There's always concern about a candidate of sort of peaking early on of but I think this is actually pretty good. Timing Bernie running up to Iowa. Things are looking good in New Hampshire on California And so you know. I think it's worth being optimistic about Like Ariel said. There's a lot of potential volatility. Here you can see Biden is ramping. Up Attacks on Bernie He's going to. I think pivot next record on guns And also Bernie is ramping up attacks on Biden where it comes to corruption entitlement cuts At the exact moment that those issues at least corruption are central to the impeachment trial. So there are a lot of open questions here. Rl another way in which the polls are moving as that Mike Bloomberg who spent like a quarter billion dollars on national advertising so far has been moving up in the polls as a result of that. He's he's taken fourth place in the five thirty tracker outpacing Mayor Pete Buddha Judge. What do you make of of the growth of that support? What does it tell you about the way that at money matters for polling and does does it add up at all in terms of a strategy to because he's not running in the first four states To to somehow overtake the other candidates on Super Tuesday. It really is fascinating and Bloomberg Toms Dire. Also it almost seems like a readymade science experiment on the impact of money in Running in these primaries and it does show you that you know in a primary like this where getting your name out and getting a slice of the public attention is so crucial that you really can buy that to some extent. I think you know at the same time. Look I'm never gonNA count anyone out especially after you know. Going through the twenty sixteen primaries. It's hard for me to imagine that strategy being something that gets you not only at the table but actually carries you through especially once people start tuning in earnest which is just starting to happen now for I think the majority of primary voters are only now really starting to very seriously consider their options. So I don't know if that's enough of a strategy to actually win especially if you're not competing in early states. The races in the national point is quite stable at the top in terms of Biden. But there's been significant shifts underneath them and the ones happening now is Bernie's clearly on the rise. It's entirely plausible to see him. Winning Iowa and New Hampshire and in which case that's enormous step towards winning the nomination of the internals and some of these polls show that Democratic voters crucially View him now is kind of a normal Democrat. That's one of these polls that had Voters exactly what voters saying. They'd be basically exactly as cited and or concerned about Bernie winning the nomination as they would Joe Biden winning the nomination their CNN national poll might be a little outlier had Bernie actually ahead in the horse race but Also had him ahead narrowly among non white voters Over Joe Biden. He's strong among Latinos. You strong Young African American voters. So if our Liz. I would be very optimistic about what might might transpire here. What do you make of the the Bloomberg phenomenon rich because the president has been reacting to it Mike Bloomberg Baden Baden add on Fox and friends in his campaign manager was on Fox and friends and the president got on twitter to attack Mike Bloomberg? And you know th th there. There's two things here I mean one. Is You know Mike. Bloomberg is Richard Than the president. maybe it annoys him to be tweaked by him at the other is the. Bloomberg has signaled that he's going to keep spending money even if he's not the nominee So this could be a key part of the strategy to take down the president with any candidate for Democrats. Yes I think people tend to overestimate Just how much get from needling trump and the Bloomberg line? The other day is some people say you know. They'RE GONNA be to New York billionaires in the race. Who's the other one besides me which is another great line to get under trump's skin that's the end of the days in doesn't get you much but you know five hundred million or whatever would be the number of negative ads Counts for something. I have to say if Bloomberg is still real factor. Come Super Tuesday. And it's a Bernie Biden race. I would think Bloomberg's effect would have to help Bernie right. I mean you'd think he's a Bloomberg would be taking votes from Biden rather than Bernie and another thing about the Bernie scenario you know. He doesn't get fifty percent. You just need to have a couple more delegates and some more votes than anyone else if it gets to a contested convention as can be difficult or impossible to take it away from him. Liz rich mentions Bernie being perceived as basically a normal Democrat by by Democratic voters. It feels to me like there's a big split there between the electorate and the professional class of the Democratic Party People who are Democrats for living really care about whether you're a member of the party or not in a way that that ordinary voters may not care and of course. We saw Hillary Clinton deciding to speak up here and saying Well first of all declining to To to commit to support Bernie if he's the nominee and saying nobody likes him which is a manifestly untrue claim But it seems to me that she speaks for some fraction of at least the party. Institutionally and maybe some fraction of the electorate although certainly not most of the electorate as as rich notes there yes and she was I think being as truthful as she ever is when she said nobody likes Bernie which is true in a in a certain respect None of the super rich people That the Clintons associated with socially like Bernie. That's all true and those are also reasons that ordinary people do like Bernie And so I. I don't think it's going to be harmful for him ultimately To Have Clinton go on the record like that what could be difficult for Bernie Is If Obama decides to go on the record as having a serious reservations about Bernie There's been some reporting that suggests. Obama is contemplating that we know. That Bernie isn't really the kind of candidate. Obama seems fond of and that he probably would prefer somebody else Be that JOE or another Democrat in the running But if Obama decides to come out of and and sort of Publicly push back on the Bernie ascendancy. That can be a real issue because I think rank and file Democrats do favor Obama quite a bit and and do respect his opinion quite strongly. So that's an outcome that. I'm a little bit concerned about in terms of Bernie's chances but Hillary's issues with him and trying to fire up ordinary Democrats about Bernie having been an independent. I think those are dead ends. I'm skeptical of that reporting about Obama thinking about coming in with a warning against Bernie and that came from Charlie Gaspar. You know at at Fox. Business Charlie is very well sourced with people on and around Wall Street including with with Democrats who who are on Wall Street and activist. Democrats but the sort of people that he would have been talking about that. I'm not sure that they're reliable. Narrators of what Obama's thinking maybe a little bit of wish casting. I'm sure that there are Democrats on and around Wall Street. Who wish that Barack Obama would do that. I don't necessarily take that as a as a as claimed that a lot of thinking about doing that. I also think if Obama wanted to involve himself in the race. There'd be no reason for them to do it on the terms of I don't like Bernie stay away from Bernie he would just endorse. Joe Biden is former vice president. And I think it's sort of telling that he has chosen not to do that so far. Well there's the split you ask Liz about between the establishment and and actual voters goes to Y. A. A desperate stop Bernie campaign if it comes to that. Say if he wins Iowa New Hampshire. It was perfectly possible. Biden Biden Goodwin. Both but might have the same effect of the Stop. Desperate stop trump campaign in the republican primaries. Which didn't work In part because there was a split and average voters didn't view trump with the same alarm that The elites in the the establishment did another analogy is. You'd think there's all like a lot of material to work with. And the kind of Democrats I attended to see our former office holders and he's establishment types and they just they just think he's GonNa be nuked by Super Pac with all the stuff you know honeymooning in the Soviet Union and all that but we thought we had tons of material against trump as well and Voters just didn't want here. Yeah what do you? What do you make of that when people talk about electability and they sort of they try to figure out the strengths and weaknesses of these candidates based on where they're pulling in the primary right now? Is there any way to adjust for a tax that haven't been aired in a primary? I mean because there are certain things like you know Bernie. Sanders is for decriminalizing illegal. Entry into the United States that is not a flash point in a Democratic primary. That's something you'll hear a lot more about in a general election. Of course maybe they're also things about Joe Biden. You will hear more intense attacks related to two hundred Biden and some of the corruption issues that that Liz islets than you've heard in a Democratic primary where people are playing nice. Is there any way to figure out which of these candidates are actually in the stronger position for a general election that I think that's so hard and I think you know it's plausible to make an argument for pretty much any candidates Either positively or negatively at this point I think any sort of general election polling is kind of blunt. You know what it can tell us right now is that it looks like General Election. Matchup is going to be closed especially in battleground states. It tells us you know that there might be some variation between different candidates. Play out but you're not seeing something we're one of the top. Tier candidates is just notably notably running like consistently. Like thirty points ahead of everybody else or thirty points behind everybody else well when pitted against Donald Trump so. I think it's hard to look at that. And say you know we can price in what attacks are going to work. If people knew how to do that. It would be a whole lot easier to run campaigns and I think when you look at the electability question among Democratic voters. It's also a little complicated because on one hand Joe Biden is consistently had an advantage. If you ask who is the most electable candidate on the other hand? I don't think most Democratic voters see electability as zero sum. Game when we've asked them this in surveys. What we found is that most people think that there are multiple candidates who have the ability to win. And you see something like about a quarter saying that. They're voting for candidates who they think is going to be more electable over their favorite candidate but the majority saying now. I'm going to vote for the person who I like. And they may consider that person to be the most electable. But it's not clear that which way causalities running there when they make that claim still with me are on the left Liberal New York Times on the right restorative national review and also Ariella words Levi of Huffpost. And now it's time for tweet of the Week. Sometimes it only takes one hundred forty characters. Or maybe two hundred and eighty to distill the spirit of the week Liz Brunner. What's your tweet of the week? After Hillary Clinton went on the record with the Hollywood reporter savaging Bernie Sanders. Nobody likes him and she just feels bad that everyone got sucked in by his Baloney. My colleague at the New York Times Rostow at tweeted. Nothing learned nothing forgotten rich. Lowery tweet struck you. My tweet is from a guy named Alex Griswald and he is tweeting about a report that to Mitri Medvedev and the entire Russian government was resigning and Alex commented. Wow the astro scandal is bigger than we thought. Arlit was Lee. What's your twitter? The week my tweet is from a reporter Ben Walsh and it's a rough three tier power ranking level. One there are people familiar with your thinking level to you have a you have close associates. This may also mean you've been indicted level three you have upon and upon a misquote world. My twitter comes from Joe. Protocol of the Bullpen Strategy Group in Washington. He says it might shock. You given the current political climate but this is the single dumbest thing congress is doing right. Now it's bipartisan effort. He's talking about an effort by Jim. Risch Republican senator from Idaho and Tammy Baldwin. The Democratic senator from Wisconsin to crack down on things called milk and butter that are not actually dairy products because apparently people are confused about whether soy milk is a milk product or not. This is what the government is working to protect you from. I've been talking with Liz Brunner. The New York Times rich lowry of national review early of Huffpost. We will be back to talk about whether the presidential candidates are being too nice listening to left right and center. You're hearing civilized yet. Provocative opinions all sides. Now we need to know what you think tweet us at LLC KCRW stream all episodes of left right and center and our companion. Show all the president's lawyers at KCRW DOT com slash podcast were from the KCRW APP back again with frightened center. I'm your host Josh Barrow. On the right as rich lowry editor of national review on left is Elizabeth Brunette columnist. The New York Times and Earl Edwards Levy pulling editor at Huffpost is also with us So Liz we previewed your time calling a little bit earlier in the show that I had intended But as we noted your column relates to certain attacks that you think that Bernie Sanders ought to be making on Joe Biden about his record of coziness with certain business interests and about You know activities that his son seems to have gotten to do because of his association with Biden. I WanNa talk about the the broader point in your column which is basically that you know. Bernie shouldn't be pulling punches and you know when we compare this to some past presidential campaigns. You can look at what Obama had to say about Hillary in two thousand eight One of my favorite examples from two thousand twelve Mitt Romney sent a cake or at least said he was going to send a fifteenth anniversary cake to Newt Gingrich celebrating the fifteenth anniversary of his citation for ethics violations by the House Ethics Committee. It seems like this has been an unusually nice Democratic primary campaign and. I think you're arguing that that means we're not hearing all that. We need to hear about the differences among the candidates right and in particular. I mean so I do think it has been an unusually nice Democratic primary I think you can measure that even by the money People are not spending a lot of money on negative ads. I think so far there have only really been to that you could argue or negative ads. you know that were paid and produced advertisements not just clips. People tweeted out of. And that's a pretty big change from. Oh eight where? Hillary and Obama really fought it out Quite viciously With ads on the radio and TV. But I think there's a big desire because trump is in office of for Democrats to kind of take it easy on one another and not commit to tax. That are so brutal. They could compromise Whoever ends up going to the general against trump because there is still a lot of belief among Democrats. I don't agree with us But there is believe among Democrats. Institutionally that Bernie's attacks on Clinton which were also very mild in sixteen are what did her in against trump in. The General Clinton certainly believes that herself so I think everybody has kind of walked on eggshells And that's a little bit ridiculous because as you point out and I I agree and positives in my column of there are really concerning issues You know with a lot of the front runners In the Democratic race with Biden those are issues of coziness with donors in the financial industry. The credit card industry specifically Also issues around Sort of corruption or at least questionable at the gold dealings Regarding his son and if those are not breached in the primary and tested in the primary then they're going to be brought up in the general because these are known issues we know trump knows about them so we can either see how voters are going to respond to that now or we can see how voters are going to respond to it later But I think now is the time and Bernie. You know he doesn't like going negative. He's a vision. Issues oriented guy doesn't like talking about personalities or individuals but he's going to have to because the very things that he's against our manifest in his opponents here well so arial I I'm interested in your thoughts on on the last bit of what Lewis said there which is that. It's it's not burnings personality to want to go negative here so I'm wondering is you know. Has He pulled punches because of his personality or is he pulled punches. Because it would be a strategic mistake to punch. I mean and my senses from the polling that the Democratic primary electorate is actually unusually satisfied with this field of candidates. They tend to like a lot of candidates across the field. And so as that may be why we've seen a less negative campaign. Because there's there's little appetite for that among voters. They like a lot of these candidates. They're trying to choose them on good choices and if somebody starts talking about how bad somebody else's that will just re down badly on the person making the attack how we have seen That Democratic voters generally are very happy with the state of the electorate and they generally lake multiple candidates. You know you'll see that somebody who likes Biden and likes Warren and like Sanders. I think another factor here is that it's still a pretty crowded field so we're not yet at that stage where you have two candidates digging it out and when you have something with this many candidates. I think that there's sort of an idea that the effects of negative ad might be a little unpredictable. You might end up with you know two people go head to head the end up damaging each other and then a third person ends up taking advantage of that so. I think that when the dynamics of how that's going to impact the race become sort of complex with so many people still in the running that might add up to some hesitation as well. It's funny rich this a little bit differently in Republican primaries and I you know especially as I watch on twitter and the sort of bio sentiments of. Why can't all the candidates get along as as a former Republican? I find that kind of weird and this is a fight. They should fight but on the Republican side. You had this different dynamic in two thousand sixteen where people didn't WANNA fight trump. Not because they were afraid that fighting would look bad but because they were afraid that trump would just hit them back too hard. And then you've got all this stuff with like Chris. Christie viciously taking out Marco Rubio ahead of the New Hampshire primary Which does no good for Chris Christie But you do see what what. Rl identifies their multi-candidate field dynamics where it can be. You know it would be good for someone to attack the front runner. But no one wants to be the person who's going to do it right in a multi-candidate field. A war between two candidates often benefits someone else besides two candidates. I'm with Liz and deary and the abstract. I have no problem with a politicians attacking one another in fact I enjoy it. I think negative ads usually add. Add despite the bad reputation. Add important things to the discourse but with Bernie in particular just personally. This isn't who he is especially on any extraneous issue that doesn't have to do with substance. So it's not surprising he apologized for op. Ed Wasn't written by him or his team calling Biden and it had echos of that famous debate moment with Hillary said. I don't give a damn about her emails which might have been a good tactical position for Bernie to take. But I'm sure it was also really sincere. So if Bernie wins this thing is going to be by being Bernie and doing it in a really unorthodox way so I know him and his team. I'd I'd be really hesitant to get them off brand anyway. Well so I think to Richard Pointless Bernie's seems more comfortable taking a different line of attack against Joe Biden which is questioning his record on social security and saying that at various points in his career. Biden has been open to cuts in social. Security Biden has been pushing back very hard against that and and Bernie. You know I think again just by disposition and having this wearing this around negativity has also I think moved off of that a little bit. In ways. He shouldn't have His campaign released clip of in two thousand eighteen video of a Brookings Speech That Joe Biden gave in which he appeared to praise. Paul Ryan's efforts to cut social security and Medicaid Joe Biden's campaign called the clip doctored. It wasn't it was just truncated in that particular Statement it appears Biden might have been being a little bit sarcastic or something like that but in the very next breath in the very same speech he argues for quote adjustments to Social Security and seems to suggest means testing it according to his own economists. Jared Bernstein those are cuts. Those are euphemisms for cuts And so- Bernie's campaign shouldn't have backed down Bernie should have said in this speech. You were talking about cutting social security as recent as two years ago and that's absolutely true. I think there's a big chance that those attacks will land With voters in Iowa especially older voters that Biden has been really successful with in? They should Because Biden does have this history the Wall Street Journal's ED board Has praised him for it as recently as this week And that should be concerning so. I think the history of this is interesting. I mean this is one of these issues where Biden's been around in Washington for more than forty years and so there's a lot of history and there were times when there was bipartisan energy. For entitlement cuts. I mean in the Reagan administration. There was a big bipartisan package. That raise social security taxes and cut benefits by raising the retirement age. That had a lot of support across the political spectrum You had an effort by Barack Obama to look for so called grand bargain on fiscal issues. Where Obama was willing to do entitlement cuts but I think the key difference between the nineteen eighties and two thousand ten is economic conditions. You had a different interest rate environment. Where interest rates were very low. There was there was political pressure for deficit reduction but there wasn't the true economic pressure for deficit reduction. You had in the eighties or the nineties and that was why in the eighties or the nineties. It was possible to bring Republicans and Democrats together to to cut entitlements and also to raise taxes and a lot of cases and so while Obama was in theory willing to do entitlement cuts in practice. The reason deal didn't get made was because the price was too high the things that That Obama was demanding in exchange for those entitlement cuts. Republicans weren't willing to give up and vice versa. So I think you know I think the lesson here about the difference between Biden and Bernie. Is that if we had a big shift in economic conditions where there was real economic pressure deficit reduction. Biden would be a lot more willing to go to entitlement cuts in that case then president Bernie Sanders would be so. I think that's where you could have real daylight between them. I don't think if the economy continues as it is the you're likely to see differences in policy that gets made around social security between the two of them because Sanders won't be able to get an expansion scurry through Congress and Biden won't face the pressures that would lead him to be willing to cut it. But I think you know it's it's an interesting theoretical case. If you're president for eight years things could change a lot a book before we go. I WanNa talk about Comma Harris. Kamla Harris is in the New York. Times this week Because the time reports that she's thinking about endorsing Joe Biden but she hasn't decided yet. The Times says quote Democrats close to Miss Harris. Say she wanted to carefully consider. The potential impact of her. Endorsement was mindful the two of our female colleagues senators Amy Klobuchar and Elizabeth. Warren were still in the race and was uneasy about the prospect of backing a candidate only to see him or her lose in California unquote so first of all the calculating nature of this like trying to figure out. You know what what what endorsement will do. Best for me politically. And then the fact that that calculation ends up in the pages the New York Times. The people close to you are talking to the paper about the fact that you're making this political calculation. It sort of seems to go to me to like everything that was wrong with. Harrison the campaign sort of lack of any core of ideology that ended up. Not only showing her to be you know willing to go wherever she wanted But it it. It undermined her political appeal. People didn't know what she was and so I guess the question is if she was going to do this it'd be because she's trying to get on the ticket with Joe Biden which even be a good running mate for Joe Biden. Would she add political value? Given all the political misstep she took in the campaign. I don't think so I I think she's highly overrated as a political figure. I think what you say about this. This episode going to our weaknesses in the campaign is is absolutely right including that it showed up in the newspaper and we had these just jaw-dropping leaks prior to her dropping out in race about the internal divisions are campaign. It was really the kind of the death rattle so I think she would be kind of a check. The box choice for for Biden in terms of of demographics. I think that's right. I think that Pulling Harris Onto Biden's ticket from Biden's point of view. It'd be a positive insofar as it could be an inoculation around some of the negatives he has With women he already does pretty well With black voters So I I don't think that that's what you would be looking for but there's no question That Harris campaign was was quite a inexpertly. Run on a variety of levels But on the other hand I do think that she's a good fit for Biden in that neither of them really appear to have principles They just kind of move around In terms of whatever is going on at the moment That's going to keep them Where they are comfortably. Arial Duva since do vice presidential picks matter If if you are a US senator trying to position yourself to pick for vice president or if you're someone who thinks are going to be the nominee trying to pick a running mate. How do you figure out what what move actually helps you win the general election? I think this is one of those questions. That's always a little tricky to answer because it ends up being something like it doesn't matter a huge amount it can matter at the margins and if we have something like two thousand sixteen. It's an election. That's going to be decided at the margins. You end up in this place where everything matters a little bit and I think potentially you know the thing is probably not as big of a deal as people want to think. It is what you can see. An effective is. The vice presidential candidate is vastly more popular or a more unpopular than the person at the top of the ticket than they can be. Either you know something of a bomber they can drag down which you know something like Sarah Palin. Maybe in two thousand and eight this time around. I think you know you're GONNA see candidates looking for someone who can sort of balance out their weak points. I could see a case where that could matter at the edges but until we know you know obviously who the nominee is and sort of what they're needing to balance out to face to face against trump. It's a little hard to know whether that's going to be. You know the game changer of the election or something that adds onto all the other factors that are going to go into this Orioles Levy reporter and pulling editor huffpost. Thank you for joining us. Thanks thanks so much for having me. We reached that time once again for famed left right and center rants featuring pepease from across the political spectrum. Rich lowry at your soapbox neither Nancy Pelosi or Mitch McConnell or shedding any tears over this. But it's kind of crazy that with less than two weeks ago before an Iowa caucus that made you much define our national politics over the next year and perhaps beyond three plausible candidates have to sit all day in Washington drinking water or milk listening to an impeachment trial that everyone knows the outcome. Love Liz Brenick. What's on your mind this week? Popular podcast Jose Joe Rogan endorsed Bernie Sanders or Lee said. He's going to vote for him now. A lot of people on the left side of things. We're distressed by this. Because Bernie cut an ad with the endorsement and thank Joe Rogan for it. Joe Rogan who's an intimate commentator in? A lot of his views can probably be seen as pretty right wing. Bernie should lean into these endorsements and he should readily accept the support of people who are not typical Democrats. That's what it's GonNa take to win for my rant. Unlike Joe Rogan. The New York Times was not able to settle on one candidate in the Democratic primary. They endorsed two candidates. They endorsed Elizabeth. Warren and Amy Klobuchar. I don't think that newspaper editorial board endorsements serve important purpose. To begin with a disembodied editorial board is not who voters look to tell them how they should vote at least in very high profile elections like presidential elections. Voters have a lot of opinions of their own. Think it's great when newspapers endorsed for who you should vote for on the municipal water board things like that or maybe you're not paying a lot of attention and they do all the boring research to figure out who's well qualified but for president. I don't think people are really looking to the paper and they're especially not looking to the paper to say. Hey we are in a disembodied board of many people with diverse political opinions. Who couldn't agree? Yeah no I mean that's that's how groups of people with diverse points of view are. You can't settle on one endorsement. Maybe you should make zero. That's the only time for today.

I like her Monica to emissary for those that don't know emissary always travels with the purpose of delivering a message or a gift. The cool thing is is to deny an emissary the opportunity to present what he has to bring forth would in all cultures be considered extremely impolite. So I like I like that part but juicy though I feel like Dave Chapelle major life hell for a week without whole justice for juicy thing now I mean I'm definitely going to use that. Yeah I mean especially if you get incarcerated the justice for juicy t shirts with. She's got the biggest house in Texas. Oh Shit but I guess I guess juicy the White Wordy Southerner just doesn't have the same ring. I suppose gadget yes. I'm not too far from you. I'm I'm close to Austin Their Kaleen in your you grew up. There is this by like Cooper Creek Net Schultz. Part can run. Their name showed Yemen. Well let me ask you. Is You know down the street from where I lived? There was a fucking Kmart at I. Don't know if K Mart Texas thing it was it was big in my area especially when Martha Stewart endorsed Texas thing. It was every man it was so shitty you know. How do you know how warmer feels dirty after you walk through a target? You know what I mean like K. Mart was worse than Walmart was always like the worst like they had. They had layaway in two thousand thirteen. Still Promotes layaway. In the modern age. Man I don't even know but yeah are we had one K. MART. It was you know honestly. The Walmart was on the same level as a K. Mart in Denton. At least because I was before like that was before Walmart or at least you know back in the day. That was before Walmart you know became the the. Monolithic is now ours. Had like a ghetto is how little CAESARS. Inside of it and it was just it was the worst I hated Kmart. So you the best to you from Kmart Radio Cam Marty. You know to prepare for this interview. I listen to one of those tapes man from nine hundred ninety two and if anyone is listening manage the craziest Shit ever. They are the mix tapes that played in the store. Attention came argument. And this one that I checked out at everyone from like Wilson Phillips Katie. Gee and then it transitions into donny. Osmond and George Michael. It's like the most ninety thing I've ever heard in my life. Yes it's a bunch of I mean it's like there's a bunch of Pop music on there. There's also like elevator versions of pop songs. It's it's really interesting to listen to. I listen to all by nearly sixty tapes. I think and just scouring for whatever I could use. It's funny what you blind now. It's funny what you find like what they decided. So you know put on the table. There was a stream of consciousness when they were streaming that together and it wasn't just a mix tape of like just whatever I imagine. There's probably a lot of politics involved. Just like everything money's involved you know big contracts and all that attention kmart shoppers the country by storm. But it wasn't until later that another young recording artists took his turn at coughing. The music recording artist. Whose name some guy who worked at. Kmart between like eighty nine and ninety nine. First off you worked at K. Mart for ten years you Jack. The Mix tapes you upload them on the Internet sixteen years later held onto them with the hopes that they would be you someday and it gets millions of downloads. How did you find out about what? How did you even begin to create a project from hundreds of hours of archived? Said you listen to like what sixty tapes? Yeah I think the dude like could up. I think it's fifty nine tapes but some of them were like four hours long because they were like reel to reel. I came across it man. I can't remember honestly because it was. It was one of those things I think like. Av Club wrote about it in probably vice wrote about it or something and everybody was posted on social media. So when I heard about it immediately I was like this is perfect. How long did you spend on going through all the stall the tapes or like the project are going through? The sample is listening to I. Just you know spent two days just listening to it in slow chopping out things and putting them in and that kind of thing I mean you could have easily spent six months if you limited all to like a day's work. It seems less daunting. I'm really I spend a Lotta time going through music and choosing in figuring out what I wanNA use and what I know. I have a little bit of foresight just from experience to know like what is going to work. It's not gonNA work. What might be like feel like it's GonNa work but could probably end up into a trap in that kind of thing. Was the intention for Mark Davis to hear it all that ever on your radar and not really but it's awesome that we were able to get in touch and he enjoyed the record Honestly I'm never thinking about that you know when I'm sampling. I'm not like I hope this person. Here's this it's cool. If they do buzz I wanna hear it. You know that's really what it is. Well I know this is all several years. Old View May or may not have told the story record. But thank you for indulging me. It's just it's crazy the degrees of separation from a teenager at K. Mart in the Eighties Jack and tapes then twenty years later with the birth of the Internet and your interest in Music. It leads how shoes to hearing it and now you have a new tape for preorder almost like inspection. You know Yemen is pretty cool and this guy came out of it. I got a note this came out of Naperville Illinois. You want to know how important of a city that is the drummer from Hootie and the blowfish is from there. That's it that's just a crazy series of events and crazy is when reading the backstory of all this. I thought you were bullshit. And I didn't think this Kmart backstory real. You really have to investigate it. Hear it to believe it is kind of a you know. It's kind of a quirky story. You're not the only one some people I just laugh it off but it's like some people like you know. Is this story real are you? Did you make that up? I'm like Bro. You can google it. You know growing up your data center Ron Miles Rudy. Royston he likes jazz. He's listening to jazz. While you're growing up was that kind of kind of influence that puts you in the music. Did you naturally gravitate towards you know the hard early age had have that chain of events? My Dad Plays Guitar. Sings definitely immersed my life in music or helped to in Denton. There's a lot of really good musicians in a lot of really good music for being such a small town. I don't ever remember wanting to do anything else. And that kind of led to it Los Pathos Poros which is mighty ducks in Spanish. That was five six years ago. Maybe like a friend and I discovered proven Columbia and I just had to like you know. Find all of it and we started a band here just to basically cover that music and that's with a group of so what happened. The Joe CRIPS. Joe Crips I you know Kinda. Just disappeared He moved to Arkansas and nobody really knows man. I guess sometimes you gotTa do that as a as a man you've gotta disappear. The assumption is is that at least. I'm not expecting to see him again but he was a friend in he really started the group you know he was the one who introduced us to prove in. Columbia because you know guitars instrument choir depending on where you are in Texas not so cool. But obviously it's paid off in dividends for you but was being an acquire a scenario where you had to like constantly defend yourself growing up you mean getting like picked on. Shit I went to high school in Texas man. I know I know how it is man. Honestly I don't know I. I guess I got some jet I should because it was never a problem with me because I mean I was in marching band because I didn't play sports and I needed a PE credit so basically. I played trumpet in school. Because it was quote unquote the coolest instrument accepted by my peers. So I was a tool. Perhaps I didn't have the courage to pursue something I really wanted at the same time you know. Everybody respects music. People that can do music of any kind you know. You can connect with any bully on that level at that age though if you tell people. That voice is an instrument. I don't know if that connects you know what I mean. I think that's something that you. It's like a realization. As you get older I think really no matter what age. What's more important is just actually connecting with what you're saying like. I don't think there's any particular concept that a child is not going to be open to it okay. Well let's expand on that because it was a great experience because you actually taught at Frisco school music right so you kind of got to see firsthand. How kids respond to the things that you're putting out there. Yeah that was a that was a good experience It definitely like honestly taught me more about stuff that wasn't about music. You know just being able to like. Be There for somebody that wants to. That's interested in something you know it. It could be music or whatever really on this level but I don't know I you know I feel like I learned just as much as my students from that experience. Is there anything that kind of jumps out? That's one of those like shape things you hear teachers say but I guess you really can't learn from kids especially teaching for a group having to deal with like you know several different humans at the same time hit. It teaches you about communication and like relationships. And because if you don't learn that immediately like you're GonNa get locked on is just human nature around the time after high school was at around. The Vortex is crew. Was that kind of time. Where that kind of flourished more Texas is actually later in college. Although it was pretty much all like people in new high school I I was making beats and homies. Come back in the summer and we would do like house parties and just like you know play beats and people with Brat until after a few years would get out of hand too many times we gonNA ride worldwide slipping and sliding through your galaxy on magic carpets scientists defying. Gravity spirits spacey. Meditation CHASED WITH PRECISION. So they when they said for the League. We take even make a decision was taken from the tip of the expert got called Bernie inches running the evil. Senate has been some interest helmets. AGAIN. Come in this little bitty like morphine. Germany 'til they think that is in the fake titties. Take pity on these silly bitches I. They've richest vicious buildings. Attention IS FICTITIOUS. Like this now. What Saint Louis Recipe Mundane Hilton? Take you fight. The polls confide controlling the rights of the meal much right hold defines Texas the center abruptly Parsons Birth. The emissary emissary. Meanwhile while Houston was busy with Swisher house a little flip UK. I mean you guys had Guillotine the Casino Champs Solomon an Infinite Dula FAB dues Ricci flow. You know man. It was very cool. Yes that was. That was a good time man like it was still a lot of everybody was still young and you know had some time and. I'm glad we got to do that. New Renaissance Records. That's what you're talking about. Yeah and I'm glad you brought it up that you guys are all young you up on Ricci flow and like in current times because he couldn't make music his full-time Gig so he pays the bills being magician will. Yeah Richie is the only like Definitely one of the more amazing humans. I've ever met Ricci flow. Y'All check him out. Yeah I just I get a little lump in my throat when I find out that people talented people good people can't make music fulltime. I'm glad to see mark. Spitz is still making music. He has a new video with guilty Simpson and he reps Dallas hard. So it's I didn't even know that that's tight. It's manages it warms my heart to see people that are just doing something for a long time and it's cool if you have a day job and you want a day job but if your heart set on music and you know men of a certain age they gotta go get a job so so so real quick. Are you from Kaleen Roper? So you've been around for a while. Oh yeah born and raised here. So if there's anything Texas rap I know about it Coleman right on the WHO else was big in the day where I lived fucking Josh Wink. I remember being in the Josh Wink. I mean he was huge with that. Are you there joint? Then you know I don't know if EMC but screw looks went and kind of destroyed the whole genre from a mainstream perspective so it is kind of pulled back a bit. Now I feel I feel like it was done before. Screw licensure he he just you know. Yeah I mean I I. I saw Josh wink somewhere in like I can't remember. It was like two thousand or something but it was. It was some good times. It was a different scene out there. And you always in Texas. You lived in New York and one point right. Yeah moved to New York for. I was only there for like a year but I love New York. If I if I had an opportunity I would move back in a minute. We'll see what brought you back because I know Texas can kind of be like a black hole. That sucks you back for sure but Ran into a bad roommate situation. You know I'll be real with you. I I moved to the East Coast and I had the exact same thing and came right back but I was in Maryland. I wasn't in New York in a outliving with craigslist remains the whole year. In like you know one of them went bad so you still enjoy going to places like change as Pizza Green Elephant. Andy is an honor and the Green Elephant. They it's crazy that's still around. I haven't been in years yet. Jj's every once in a while. I do a happy hour gig on Tuesdays Dan Silver Leaf so I'm there every week. Andy's is a frequent spot. I haven't been green years man. That's crazy it's still. Oh boy if I told you the music I like. I can't tell you why I like it but I can recognize it. Well I think a lot of people with you. Say Hey you know. Why do you like the Song I think? A lot of people can't tell you why but they can recognize it and you're you're a creator of your music. Every minute is a cohesive project. There was thought that went into it. There was calculated decisions into what vocals or instruments used here. Let me let me say something that could maybe help you better clarify you take someone like miles. Davis the majority would say kind of blue speaks of because it's a good entry point in the jazz but yours was in a silent way. It speaks to you. How do you determine that? I don't know that in a silent way was the entry point but it was more of Maybe almost a distraction from what I thought was jazz because by the time I heard in a silent way. It's like a very different miles Davis record from what I was used to. And it reminded me actually of some electric music especially with the drums. Just doing the same thing and letting everybody just meditate on it and the vibe was just great of that record as far as that record and these it was kind of a departure from jazz in the way I felt like you know. Can you characterize I guess your music and kind of the same way or are we or are those types of albums important because your personal associations with it special? Yeah for sure. I mean any any record like that. I'm not gonNA say like there's certain records. I don't know that that's miles Davis best record but it's my favorite one. You know what I mean and it and it just has to do with my own experiences with it but at the same time like it holds up. It's good it's good work in what I mean. And that's really that's really all I can like hope to achieve I guess Because that being my favorite miles Davis record has nothing to do with necessarily what they put into it or what or whatever you know. It was just right time right. Place in the sure side is is very lazy they want they want what will help their bottom line. But they're formula it's outdated it doesn't really create anything repackages. The same sound and pretty wrapping. Do you pay mind to the business side of what you do or do you just create releasing. Let the universe take it from there. Yeah I pretty much just you know make what I WANNA make. You only live once so the Times that I have done something to make some money or whatever. It's cool but really what I WANNA do. My Mile like goal is just to leave something behind that represents me you know like a full body of work whatever you know whatever that means a full body of work you know. It's I guess it'll be a full body when I'm dead. Yeah I mean that's the mindset I have with this podcast if I die our archive of these interviews. That would be my full body work. If you're an author you have all these books that would be your full bunny work so this is kind of your lane and sometimes it's just one one record so is whatever full body of work means. That's what I did. You can listen to it and you can expect like you can experience it You talk about something maybe thank. Those won't won't talk about. I guess the industry side those end of the year spotify things that flooded social media. I'm convinced that spotify built that or came up with that. Just because they know that millions and millions of people will see it so it's basically a billboard for their brand and sell you on a notion that social media gives artists power to reach their audience without a label. But it's it's all just Kinda. I Dunno industry stuff. Well it's the name of the game now. I mean it's unfortunate but it works. Everybody puts shit up. They're just pushing people's buttons. You know I wanna you know and people want to put those up. 'cause it's an opportunity to like you know talk about. It's a campaign you know for their brand and spotify is found a way to co OPS. That is it smart. It's smart as foot. I would definitely and rare are the careers in the music business that are defined by altruism like when how shoes reaches out to you that was all organic he flew out to. Texas to meet you all from a soundcloud track rooming Jerry true. Yeah how shoes is a rare. Do Shadow taxers. I love stories like that. Like did you know that? After serving a brief jail bid in the late nineties there was a producer. Name the forty five king and he needed to make some money guys jail so he was shopping. His beat sue all these people. I don't think anybody was was buying what he was selling. So one day he was sitting on on his bed because doing girls and a trailer for the film sliding doors on TV with Di those thank background and he was so enamored by her vocals. He tape the song directly off the TV brought it to his studio. Luke did added drums. And somehow it made its way to Eminem and it became stand and you can be in your boxer shorts cheeto dust on your shirt of watching judge. Judy and the next thing you know the Aha moment it can change. Your Life can happen so I I love it when things that come into place. The Best Ideas. Come with cheeto dust on my boxers. I mean I didn't even know soundcloud Relevant but you are smart enough to like you know I got some Lucy's let me put it up there. Well no actually. That was the timber joint house shoes. Got It at a good time because that was definitely a joint that I put up. Just very briefly. The original release of timber was hidden on my website. The whole point of the of the project was to be like in a- If a tree falls in the forest nobody years. It doesn't make a sound so I wanted to make an album. That was like that and hide it on my website so I basically made like a is basically like a riddle. You know you had to solve the riddle to get to the link to download it but ten percent of the people would solve the riddle so every once in a while I would put it up on soundcloud or somewhere so just kinda you know revive interest but it was. It was fun like I eventually. You know. Obviously we're putting it all out now but it was just you know here in their people would get to hear it from a business standpoint though like man. Hey in order to hear my music you've got to solve the Vinci Code to get to it. I don't know if that's advantageous but I guess it does reveal who your true fans are. Yeah in it's not even about that. It's like you know I just feel like it's too easy to get music now. At the point now is not the point I feel like looking for it and getting it like finding the music right now. People feel like it's so easy to discover whoever but they're dependent on these algorithms. And you know that's shaping their musical path in a certain way and I don't think people are thinking about that. Let's just say I want to take my hard earned money. I want to support you. I go to fat beats and I appreciate your album. But I'm the three hundred and first customer out while your vitals limited to three hundred now. I can't get your music. This is what's the what's the balancing act on that. Well you know if somebody wants to get music they can get. My Music is the twenty first century. Like there's nothing stopping anybody from getting anything so I'm not really I don't feel like I just WanNa hear some more music like I just feel like it's like you know people are like I can get music anywhere you know for free. I don't know the way that we release music. I feel like needs to be revolution. So I'm just trying to explore that and how people created I know. J. D. R. J. diller of would hear something he would take his headphones off Closes is start nodding to himself beat boxing? Little Drum patterns like headphones can get in the way when you're creating music to honestly I don't I don't really like using headphones When I'm making beats but you know I know people that do it and it's all just what you used to think it molds to the person so I guess the last thing I wanted to bring the actual tape itself because timber the full vision of that project like you said it was like from two years ago and now here it is at present day. So it's it's kind of a full circle project But tell the people about it yet. It's pretty cool. So yeah the release. The secret release on the website was just like the a side and I I had always intended on doing a B side to it. But you know when she was hit me up and said. I need a B side for it. It was like yeah tight. I'm going to do that but obviously I had I had just finished. Kmart project at that point so I sent it to him so this is kind of you know the record that was made before and after kmart shoppers. So it's Kinda crazy so when you when you're hearing it if you buy this record here it's Kinda like two mindsets went into this kind of the Jesse from two thousand sixteen now for sure. Yeah I like how it turned out like that too. We we've made like the cover and the back cover correlate with that You'll see record comes out but it's definitely like two different universities on each side. Some that will ten years ago. You were putting out music at payroll price now. Your art will never be discounted so unless you got a time machine. Pay This man so with that said I know your time is valuable and I really appreciate you sharing these jewels with myself and my audience and thanks for being here.

Are you fire me here in Saint Louis? We know about Snow Days Right. It's like hey a wake up and snow and even suggesting in Saint Louis is like. Oh it's no I don't have to go to school. It's a day off. It's like a free deal just feels good to have a day off. Here's my question to you. How long has it been since you had a technical day off? I know that you work so many days. Then you actually start doing your real job. Now you go home and Cook and clean and clean the gutters and clean the car and run the kids around how many I'll work a whole lot. Raise your hand if you work a lot. How me I'll look at your neighbor and say you should take some of my chores for me. We work we work so much. We're always working and we really don't rest our soul. We're tired we're aggravated. That's why people are so mad at the traffic light. People are always honking at me. By the way because I get caught up on deleting the spam in my email at a red light I haven't seen a green light in twenty years. I don't go until I hear the hawk. I'm that guy come on but we're just everybody's so aggravated because their soul has not found rest. The Bible said this in Matthew Eleven twenty eight. It says coming to me all you that are weary and heavy laden coming to me and you will find rest for your soul. He says learn of me because my yoke is easy and my burden is light. Feel yoked up like I work. I work I work. I'm working all the time. Where where where gwen technology was work? All Work and no play makes Jack del Boy. How long has it been since you went on a date? Let me ask you a question. How long have you been on since you went on a date? And you didn't bring your phone with you. Let's get quiet in this Presbyterian church in fact every time we sit down does not have when you go out with friends and we all take your phone on the table. It's like a Western movie with Clint Eastwood. It's like here's my gun at any point during this conversation that it gets boring. I'm getting instagram. Hey hang on. I'm getting a text right now. Get Soup Soup. We're always tied to this and I'm preaching to myself because I can't live without this phone think too I can't live living is with you. Okay I even have charges that I bring with me. I have battery packs for the battery. Pack that come on Mytalk I wanNA see the show of hands all campuses that you and if you know it's not you but it's the person next to you you want to judge. Just look at go down because we're tired of it and I'm all for technology but the problem is we're so busy our soul. Does it find any rest? Got said come learn of me. We got to be confident to realize that we need a day of rest now. God said this it says in the word of God. Let's go to. Genesis is beginning. Genesis means the beginning chapter two. It says does the heavens and the earth and all the host of them were finished so there needs to be a Finnish and on the seventh day got ended. His work got ended his work on the seventh day. He ended his work. There must be an end to the work. My works never done. There has to be an into the work. If you don't do that you will drive yourself crazy. I was just talking to one of the doctors at our church and he was telling me how a thirty five year old recently was working eighty hours a week. It's almost impossible to do that to work. Eighty hours a week in fact. We did that ourselves time. Look we're going to work all the time so we actually put a top clock at the church if you work at the shirts even if your salary do you have to have a time clock because the people thought I'm working but because if you do get there at nine you don't leave the five do that every day. It seems like you're working all the time again. It seems to quite Lord. I told you this system is steak I knew it. They like to hear quick work out. Some believe he told you this would not work. But they weren't working as much as they not that they weren't working but they thought they were working more so guy literally was working eight hours a week and at thirty five they found him dead of a heart attack. He literally worked himself to death. Now the people here you never ever going to risk that because like never worked day. A Lot. Don't pointed anybody but there are people that you never ever shut down. GotTa gotTa gotTa get it done because you find your worth in your work and you can't find your worth in your work. You find your worth in your worship and the worship happens on the seventh day. We've come into the House of God and you say Lord here L. Resting in you. Do you remember the story in the Bible where it says that? Manna fell out of heaven. Every member of this story the man in other words chick-fil-a is closed on Sunday. Which is a real bummer. That means on Saturday. You got to go get an Chick-fil-a to last Sunday adult. Forget that chick-fil-a starts. Can I get a man because Conway told US closed on Sunday Yamaha? Chick-fil-a closed off Sunday. Look like I've never heard this on. You need to get into today's culture. Stop working so much and download the Konya album. Jesus King Okay so anyway. Every day they're dropping out of the sky and the Bible says everyday only take today's Amana. Because if you take enough for tomorrow then it'll turn to maggots. Let me all hate that when that happens so but but he said on the last day of the week preparing for the Sabbath Day because going to be the around he said take enough for tomorrow. It will not turn into maggots. It will be enough for you to have provisions in the day of rest in other words was saying. I'm providing for you every day but there needs to be a day that you do not go to work under the law. He kept saying stuff like don't work. Don't your lambs work? Don't have your Cadillac. I've never seen Cadillac. I don't know what they do. Maybe it's like. Don't make them on Sunday. I don't know all I know is is that God is saying you have to have a physical rest and a soul rest or you will be arrested by fear anxiety short temper. Wonder why you're like man.

All camps sold art. Look at your neighbor and say. Don't mess with me. I'm chart it's the way we extract information from people who are enemies of the United States. We actually interrogate them. And you sleep deprivation. It's also called single parent and can. I get when this we'll go to sleep. You're like losing your mind by the way guys unless we talked on Mary Chummy L. Enjoyed that a lot of wrestling going on at our church this week. A lot of wrestling events noticed bruises on people all kinds of stuff because a whole lot of wrestling going on but the guy is supposed to help with that baby. She carried it for nine months. Now you need to carry it. This is why the side note today. Serve but Nicole says to me when she's has actually she's like I think I'm GonNa breastfeed so much healthier and I'm like I don't have to get up in the middle of the night. I really feel good about this in my spirit. Say Guys go breastfeeding now. Finish the work that he had done and now he rested Verse Three Says Chapter. Two verse three is then. God blessed the seventh day sanctified it and he rested from all his work. He blessed it sanctified it any rested from all his work on it again he blessed it and he sanctified it any rest from his work in other words the sabbath is like the top five got said that is why it is holy sanctified. It don't touch it. In fact sometimes people think they can do more without God than they can with God in other words nine dollars goes better with God than ten dollars without God so every dollar out of ten every dime out of a dollar goes to God. He said that is mine. It's a way that you prove to me that you don't love money that you love me and you trust me. He says on the seventh day you go to church and you worship God. You seized from your own labors. It is not even a day where you go home and clean the gutters cleaned the car. Clean the laundry and do all that you have to trust. God come on somebody give God price today and he will help you. You GotTa See from Your Labor. You have to tell you. I'm preaching to me today. I'm not an alcoholic. I'm a workaholic. I love work found value and work. I like to work working a my wife flex to work my wife out more me every we look at people that only works so much and we go like. Why are you sleeping you come on? Let's make this up because we were both workaholics. Before we got married then we got married. We went in business together. We had those businesses and then we started having houses the flipping houses then. We started rehabbing in flipping apartment complexes and we still own nature accomplished apartment complexes in Arizona and Oklahoma and we. We were blessed in rich in favor and we worked all the time. We still have those things that other people run for us because God said I'm calling you to give this information and irrelevant humorous manner and build a church called faith church. You don't have to stop doing that but you have to do it in a different way. Come on somebody give God. That's why we're one of the biggest givers in our church. We give back fifty percent not ten fifty percent of our income every year. Because we're blessed. I'm a home schooler. That lived in a trailer but I trusted God and he blessed me and I also trust God with the Sabbath now for me. It's not on Sunday for you. It's Sunday okay. What does it have to be a certain day? It doesn't have to be during day. But how many all work Monday through Friday? So you can't be that that you can't go. Hey call unknown to work tomorrow and tell them. Hey God told me to tell you that. On Tuesday two days must sabbath. I ain't gonNA work. How many all know he'll be like you ain't got job. It's about to be a quick. You're out of work quick. You're broke right but on Sunday. The Lord's Day. Everybody's shot that Sunday. Talking to Ferguson floor associate hills are steady welded. Shut it again. Sunday is Lord's so you're saying as for me and my house we will serve the Lord so you need to serve in church. You need not just go to Church. You need to serve a church. Church is not just bless me. Feed me help me deliver me. It's all about me a worship me. No no no no. We need to worship God trust him with a Sabbath and trust that Jesus finished the work right. He finished the work on the cross of calvary so no longer. Do we have to measure up? He measured up for us so that works done but the work of our physical rest in our soul has to rest. Sometimes I just have to rest. I'll tell my team I don't know I can't. I can't think right now taking a break because I have say like last weekend Earth City and I'll be there again this weekend. I'll preach there Saturday night. Then they'll come get me at my house at eight thirty. And then he'll take me to earth city then they'll tell me to sunset hills our city since that heels are city since it hills or city since it hills hills by the end of that. I go we gotTA figure out streaming before I die because this works. I can preach longer communicate better plus to them in Florida. Where seventy degrees in. God is waiting for me in my car. I'm just here to tell you right now. That is part of the rhythm. Guide called me this. I didn't come to Florida for the weather. It was just a perk. Tell my friends in Ohio. I don't know why God doesn't love you. I don't know why but I am telling you that you could come to the revival in Boynton beach on March twenty six Komo. Somebody ought to help you get the border. Here's my point. I have to have rhythm because I work on Sunday so to meet Sabbath Friday. I'm not supposed to work on Friday. I'm not supposed to create on Friday. I'm always creating even this right here. This right here. This is all created in a room about first week as a rhythm of revival trump then the rhythm of we could call it. The rhythm of wrestling remember that one day you'll go and then now we're talking about the rhythm of arrest next week. We're already I'm already in next week. In fact I this week wanted to show you because I thought it would help illustrate for you like I'll bring creative teams around me and the Saint Louis. We went to lunch and I said Hey. I wrote a song in my prayer. Tom And I want to include it into my servants. So I'm already creating. I'm already done with this week sermon. Nf Gun with next week's sermon. I've already put it in here. So my brain gets tired. In fact I WANNA take you in my car just for a minute and see a little bit of what next week would look like how to create here in the twenty days of prayer. God gave me this song and it was like And I think I WANNA do a sermon about it but while we're on the rhythm so it'd be like when like I want to. I don't want to power the climactic. Ooh What if we had maybe three or four guys on stage and we're GONNA like start off with some chairs or something like that they can. They can see I one God. I Want War guy on the bow down to look at your neighbors like that. Come on. I like that again. I create in my brain now when I got this sermon Thursday. I had taken off because we did the twenty days of prayer and getting ready for the revival right so every day I was getting it but six creating content. We're praying we're doing everything and I felt like I needed two days. Because here's what happens when you violate the Sabbath. I mean will it to me in a public setting that you have violated the Sabbath more than once guy so despite the way. It's the command. God says there's ten commands right before Dave Letterman. Got A top ten list. It was doubt. Shalt not kill all even though we're under grace. We're probably supposed to not kill. I would be careful St Louis in that. Come down there's a lot of murders here. I didn't know it till now. Try that God still says thou shalt not commit adultery. I'll believe God says you shouldn't take the Lord's name in vain. We all the Lord said there is the savage to keep it holy. How many y'all have broken some of those commandments? In which we talked about a really want to know which one it is. I'm just curious. You're actually very likely to break a lot of those. The reason why you murder is probably because you're not taking rest. Shall I go for adultery? The reason why you're doing that because you're so mad when she makes you hot pocket you're like man. It's not because it's horrible. It's cold in the middle. Are Hot lava hot. Can you do anything right? And then all the sudden there's this spirit that comes on the woman and she goes you know why I believe the best place for you as heaven. And now she takes that hopkins she starts ramming it down your throat. Come on help me right now. I feel like it's a word analogy somebody. But why did you say that about our budget? Somebody's crying thank God. Send me made me a hot pocket in your griping about it. Somebody's pray God. Give me a man it's my. It's my banner. Here cannot believe as my jubilee country needs to do a quick work. I was thinking it was going to happen in January but it didn't. I thought it was going to happen in February. But it didn't got we coming up on March so now you you're you're like I got hurry. I gotta go out and work every day of the week so I got more money and then I looked better so I can have more talks and I need to suck it and move it up. Come on somebody to go out clubbing. I needed and I need to go to church. Growth Track might be a great place to meet a man and then you go and look on my gosh so that kind of looks good. He didn't have a ring on his finger. This might be the all my my gosh. She's got a tesla that means. He has a household electricity. Calm down look at you. They come out. You can't do this in the flesh. God can do one day of favor that could do more than a thousand days of labor. He's saying learn of me. Take my yoke upon you. You're you're better than you think you are you trust in the Lord. You worry about stupid stuff. Call this last week. She's in the kitchen. She says just finished wake spray sleigh and I'm almost out of T T von. I don't know if you know this or not but tvos went out of business probably but it was a big deal and this was a day that was bad. This lack a meltdown for her. Anybody not so she goes to Wellington Mall buys everything she goes to Chesterfield Mall and Saint Louis about everything so we had the last two years when they went out of business. We have loads and loads of tea. Bonna tubes these cylinders in everyday. She's having a good day. She just realizes this week that she is running out in. It's almost over in so she starts on. I don't want I'm GonNa do because the tea it's actually gone. I'm thinking you know why he's been around for a long time. They've been drinking tea. In Great Britain we got a thing called the tea party. Come with somebody ought to help. I don't understand how this could be such a big deal but in all of my wisdom because I've taken my Sabbath I said honey. I'm so sorry I didn't go. Are you kidding me? That's the wrong wrestling again in your life so I looked at her and said honey. I'm sorry you're tedious. That's bad but I guarantee you there's more T. out. We're going to find you some tea. I told a story last night at the Royal Palm Beach Story and guess what a lady came up and said she has two cylinders of tea. So God's already doing a quick work in her life that gets me two weeks more of being alive lever. But I'm saying we get stressed out. I'll guarantee you the thing you're going through right now. It's a big deal. I'm not trying to belittle. I'm just saying if you go through rested if you go through refresh. That's how great athletes win. Is THEY GIVE THEIR BODY ARRESTS? They give their solar rest in. God's telling me to tell you this might be the most important message that you've got you. GotTa Labor to enter into rest and trust God. He's GonNa do what he said he could do. He'll do it exactly when he needs to somebody out. How are you okay? I'm going to rest. God better do quick because I need a million bad bad. You don't need a bad man and you don't need a bad job trust in the Lord with all your heart. Lean not to your understanding. Acknowledge him in all your ways and he will cause all things to work together for your good have no fear the Lord is here. He said your bliss coming in. You're blessed going up separate you for the love of God. Hot death thanks presidents. Thank you know what you to write this down twitter and instagram. Come on our city. You're always good about instagram. And there's a difference between ready being fruitful and being busy fruitful is. You did the work. And it was fruitful busiest. GotTa go gotta go. I gotta get this done. I gotta go now be fruitful to me preaching up here. I don't try to memorize everything. Just start flowing sometimes. It's good sometimes. It's not so good it depends. I don't try to over. Think it again. My lane allow the happy medium come forth and then I watched the stuff. That stresses me so I try to be the cultural architect my life. Listen to this Ferguson. Be The cultural architecture of your life so you can say hey. God called me to do this. But God's not going to be putting something on me. That totally wears me out. Now you're jobs going to be difficult. Not Saying there's going to be hard days but if you practice the sabbath the reason why you're in the mess right now is you. You didn't go to growth track. You're not in a small group and nobody's there to help you in your time of trouble. I was on a boat this about a week ago in key. Largo and went on a motorcycle ride to me motorcycles. Refreshing please if you don't ride motorcycles. Don't they're bad idea especially now with everybody? Texting and driving is a horrible idea. But for me I go out there and the Holy Ghost and say God please all anybody right now I drive right in some ride. My motorcycle and it refreshes muscle. It's what I've always done for you. It might be croquet why that came out of me. I've never seen anybody play croquet but it might be tennis. I don't know what it is for you but you got that thing. Anybody got that thing that you do that. You need to do as long as it's not illegal immoral or fattening. You rocked actor but now I'm doing that but I'M A. I'm still thinking about problems. Driving down the highway except hits my mind at eighty miles an hour. What are you going to do about that? What are you GonNa do about this? Cast it down. Cast down imaginations. It's my day off. I don't have to do that in the middle of the night and nobody ever done this in the middle of the night. Have incredible clarity of thought you like. I need to sleep then. You start doing the math on the sleep. Did you gotTa let anybody? If I went to sleep right now I'd have three hours major hand. Come on anybody ever done all my God. If we wouldn't sleep right now I'd have an hour and a half got screwed. I might as well get out. Then you fall asleep for thirty minutes and then you wake up and go. Oh God I wish I could sleep because now I can't sleep. Thank you what that is too much. Ti- I didn't mean it could be just say don't but we need to Labor to entered arrest when you rest. Your mind and I was doing that. I decided okay. We're here now. My friend Jeremy Foster from hope city church. He's there got some gas around me and I have a bright idea in my smart ideas by the way. Surrey decided to try to explain what I'm saying right now. So he said I'm smart idea. The Way Surrey decided to try. I really couldn't say just want to let you know what sorry senior right now. There's a rabbit so I decided you know what a great idea. We're hearing the ocean. Let's run a pontoon boat. Bad Idea Pontoon. Boats waves bad idea right now on trying to rest but I'll just show you what happened. your own good enough to give it up for that. Guy. Mccabe land plants from Florida. Okay let's talk about what happened. I was expecting a tidal wave of breakthrough him out life. But I don't WanNa drown and they were just making fun of me because I was listening into Kaanai but I had been listening to Merle Haggard and beyond say i. His wife had just said his. I'd never been around his wife. She was on the trip and she goes. His music is like him. It's just very interesting. All over the place and then all of a sudden now notice the first thing. I thought it was not saving my phone. The first thing I knew was exactly what Pets Jeremy Was. We got to get to the back of the boat. He was closer to the back of the boat. That's why it's important to have people in your small group that help you in the time of if he would have froze where he was. We were going up. Capsizing and going into shark-infested waters. I could've lost an arm I need. That aren't come on somebody up here. God's about to do a quick work of your life I'm scrolling. I lost my phone but I got a new one. Come on about it but his wife got mad because she saw Jeremy. You need to try to save me. I'm about to. He goes honey. I really did try to save you. I get to the back of the boat she's starts. He's yelling climb over because he knew everybody in the front of the boat needed to get about even when it didn't make sense to them and his wife. He knew he had to do what was good for the good of the order. That's why you need people around you and a sma- grew when your boat is flipping over somebody that knows you and somebody that knows you preaching good right now. Our city ought to say man. I know they're going crazy all the way in the back. I can see something hills knows you and knows you. What's that mean? W I know you. I know you and I know you haven't been to church in a while and I also know that you're being weird because you're not texting me back so now that I know you I'm GonNa know you in. Oh no no. I'm not going to let you go into the path every time you stop calling me. I can tell you're back with that guy again every time you don't text me back. I can tell that you avoid in the path for two years and you keep going around the mountain because you keep taking guys. That are a basket case. Somebody ought to help me run preaching good so you have to realize that there are people that have a lot of baggage and baggage and you have baggies but we need people in a small group that no us and that can know us. No you may not because people have to help you. The Bible said that iron sharpens iron. So does one French sharpen another one? That's why this church is big but it small. If you're in a small group you need people to say I haven't seen you in awhile. I told the guy recently I said I saw so and so and I could tell that his spiritual health had declined. You Ever See People. You have seen him a long time. You're like man. They don't look healthy like cancer. Something's wrong it's like their physical health declined. I can see that in the spirit. Sometimes and I'll look at people at Church. Indigo men their spiritual health decline. You WanNa look energize. You want to refresh and the only way you do that have people that know you know you if you haven't went to track. Today is the day here in West Palm right through that door right there. At all campuses growth track is how you connect with got you know you need to connect God more. Raise your hand. If you need to connect with God more you probably need to raise your hand because guys probably looking at right now and if you WanNa keep that elbow it'd be a good time to raise your hand. Let's try it again. Wave your hand and the like. Just don't care. Thank God God. Can ever people discover your purpose? Make a difference. You keep working like crazy but you haven't discovered your purpose sure. I made a lot of money Nicole. You're Nicole made one hundred thousand dollars. Every thirty days I was she would win. All the awards. We'd go to place and they'd go. What do you do and I'd go? I'm a go getter. I'll take to work and then I go get it and they're like I like you. Everybody else is trying to suck up to the you know the president of the company. I didn't care because I knew Nicole knew her purpose and I knew what my purpose was. I was her man. I'm made our mix tape. Pause the sermon and talk about a mix tape. If you have not watched last week's sermon go back and watch it because it'll fix your marriage johnny. Gill will help you. Johnny Gill wasn't very lyrical but he wrote songs that were repetitive. But there were good one of his great songs is my my Mama Mama. You should look good tonight. My my my mom I you look good and then he got to a point where we got stuck anywhere my mom Mama Mama Mama Mama Mama Mama I show a good and I'll is so off Mama Mama. In other words he was in his rhythm. It wasn't a lot of lyrics. It was is like my my my my momma. You sure look tonight. I'm here to tell you that sometimes less is sometimes less words. You ever seen somebody. Launched just goes talks nonstop this hard for me to say right now because I've done all the talking here today to you guys have been kind of a twenty minute period which I'm supposed to talk but I've seen people that would be on a date and I would be kind of on a date with them in the sense that we're at Chick-fil-a in their next to me and it's like she's little. Sometimes you just need to be pretty. I'm coming through that camera all camps. Sometimes you need to go but I need you. Tell them everything that I needed. A man got some people here in West Palm just for the record that are like I got a word for you need to smile. Because if you don't you're never gonNA hear my my my my. Mama Mama you sure. Look good and you're gonNA hear bye bye bye bye bye bye bye bye Miss American Pad Shah which I think God saying that to us today shirt. He say be quiet. Just come before me was seeing come with. Dancing goes through growth track Guinness Small Group come to Church on every Sunday and say us for me and my house. We're going to serve the Lord. I'm going to do what's right because it's right. If I do that long enough it will catch up with me if you do the wrong thing long enough. It'll catch up to you. You might get by with murder. You might get the second barter. You might get bad with the first adultery. You might get the first one but eventually the Bible says your sins. We'll find you out. God's grace is sufficient but we need soul rest. We need to learn that the Sabbath was made for us to rest our soul. Don't you find it interesting that you're exhausted and you're you feel like you just can't go on and say hey just shell and rat because the fear that you're seeing is real. I WANNA take you to video. Second you're going to see a little boy that he thinks he's drowning losing to offer. Look it is. It is for instance do the whole thing.

Now they open it up and I see everything. That'd be like well if I take this tennis shoe out will will at work. We'll take this out with at work again. A lot of people go through life with a lot of unnecessary baggage recently at the airport. I literally saw this. Open it up. And there was a guy and he had a coffee maker. And I'm like what in the world really y'all know wherever he's going in America there's four starbucks and five hipster coffee shops within two minutes. Komo wave your hand right now in fact even if you go to heaven. There's coffee shops in heaven because there was a whole book in the Bible called Hebrews. The Guy I've seen this guy had a blender. He was a big muscle. Guys gotTA have protein. We all know you can go. Downstairs at the Holiday Inn and get a blender or you could get one of those shakers. You don't need to take this. It's also a weapon. This would really took the cake. I saw a woman with a dustbuster. You staying at a Gross Hotel. If you gotTA BE GOTTA clean this place up this is such roaches right out of the bed when I get in there. You don't need a dustbuster. You need a better hotel your hand at me.

We think I'm not qualified to do that or I don't have time to do that today. On insight for Living Chuck's Gwendal reminds us that God appoints the most unlikely an unqualified people to undertake. What appears to be impossible. This is message number. Six in the thirteen part series called wise counsel for Troubled Times Chuck Title. Today's message taking responsibility Aws Oser who said may not the inadequacy of much of our spiritual experience be traced back to our habit of skipping through the corridor of the kingdom like children in the marketplace. Always chattering about everything pausing to learn the true value of nothing. Take through your wheat to be quiet and learn in that stillness again that he is God. We're looking today. In the ancient book of Nehemiah among the less known of the truth of the scriptures unfortunately is the story of Nehemiah a man who took responsibility all on his own before God to fulfill a mission that no one else was taking care of. I'll be reading for you. Several sections of this book verse one of Nehemiah One. These are the memoirs of Nehemiah Son of Academia in late autumn in the month of Kids Lab the Twentieth Year of King Art Exerxcise rain. I was at the fortress of Su Song. Kanani one of my brothers came to visit me with some other men who had just arrived from Judah I asked him about the Jews who had returned from captivity and about how things were going in Jerusalem they said to me things are not going well for those who returned to the province of Judah. They are in great trouble and disgrace the wall of Jerusalem has been torn down and the gates have been destroyed by fire. When I heard this I sat down and wept. In fact for days mourned fasted and prayed to the God of Heaven Chapter Two Verse. One early the following spring and the month of Nissan during the twentieth year of King Art Exerts. He's rain over serving the king his wine. I had never before appeared said in his presence. So the king asked me. Why are you looking so sad? You don't look sick to me. You must be deeply troubled then. I was terrified but I replied long live the king. How can I not be sad for the city where my ancestors are buried is in ruins and the gates have been destroyed by fire? The king asked. Well how can I help you with a prayer to the God of Heaven replied if it please the king and if you are pleased with me Your Servant Send Me To Judah to rebuild the city for my ancestors are buried? The king with the Queen's sitting beside him ask. How long will you go? When would you return? After I told him how long would be gone? The King agreed to my request. Verse Eleven so arrived in Jerusalem. Free days later a slip out during the night taking only a few others with me. I had not told anyone about the plans. Got It put in my heart for Jerusalem. We took no pack animals with us except the donkey. I was riding after dark. I went out through the valley gate past the jackals will over to the Dung Gate to inspect the broken walls and burned gates. Then I went to the Fountain Gate and to the Kings Pool. But my doggy couldn't get through the rubble so through. Though it was dark I Kidron Valley. Instead inspecting the walls before I turn back and entered again at the valley the city officials did not know. I've been out there or what I was doing for. I had not yet said anything to anyone about my plans. I had not spoken to the Jewish leaders the priests the nobles the officials or anyone else in the administration but now I said to them you know very well what trouble we are in. Jerusalem lies in ruins and its gates have been destroyed by fire. Let us rebuild the wall of Jerusalem and in this disgrace told him about how gracious hand of God had been on me and about my conversation with the king one other two verses in Nehemiah six versus fifteen and sixty so on October to the wall was finished just fifty two days after we had begun when enemies and the surrounding nations heard about it. They were frightened and humiliated. They realized this work had been done with the help hard. You're listening to insight for living to search the scriptures with chuck swindle be sure to download his searching the scripture studies by going to gin site world dot org slash studies and now the message called taking responsibility. Words are important. They're not just the building blocks of our language. Our sentence structure their important. They means something they give life shape and meaning definition. Significance has significant at times is just one word. Just one years ago I was invited to Caracas Venezuela just outside there for missionary involvement and I went alone and and was there for a little over a week. It was a wonderful time of cross cultural involvement being with people of another language and seeing a geography completely different from what? I was familiar with and a registered to be taken to to the little room where I was to stay. They said Oh. You're the speaker and I said. Yeah you get your own room and bought. And how nice is that was a corrugated iron shack outback? And you got there through a long series of paths and and I said I'm alone and the another person sitting near the register said well almost back the power of one word so I get there and I walk in and it was a naked light bulb at three in that on a sit down to cheer is a little table. They're single bed. They're very small. It starts to rain. I can hear it hitting on the car gated iron roof above me and I had the distinct feeling I wasn't alone I wasn't alone vote and I'll look off on. This looks like a four six. That was a part of the frame of the of the shack. Where I was staying in here was a hundred foot long Iguana. Well it seemed like that it was maybe maybe two and a half feet long. If you've never been close to an Iguana you haven't known what loose stool is all about. So I figured I might as well say it and I look up. I'm like Whoa okay. And then I had a conversation with him because I are her and I realize that We were going to be sharing this room and it was. It's rude. I woke up the next morning but little pellets across my blanket that had crawled on me through the night. I'm alone well almost another occasion. I was not seon in Guatemala outside Mollah City and and read the rugged surroundings and when I checked in there I was given a very nice stick like a walking stick. I thought boy is great and you get to walk around with with a stick. I use it to push the grass aside as I find my weight little check or I'd be staying and I said Oh that's nice and the lady said no it's necessary. I thought it was just a little walking tick realizes every time you shower. The Scorpions come up out of the drain. And they share the shower. They enjoy a shower or two before they sting the snot out of you and you have to. You screened your time with that lovely stick. I got twelve one time and it was kind of a record in our group. We all sharing those things so all all the time. You're showering it isn't just nice. It's necessary to have stick power one word speaking of words in the beginning. What God good for you? I four words of the Bible that most people have never really stopped to think through or the significance of them have powerful or those four words so significant that the skeptics cannot stay away from them continuing to shoot their barbs doubt and criticism against them even questioning whether they are true or not especially when you add the verb the fifth word in the beginning God created how powerful is one word one word just one think about if he's the creator then that means all of us are the creativity we're the creatures meaning. We're not in charge. It isn't about us. We didn't create anything. We can't to create as God created this world. This earth means you are on different. You have no area of weakness your omniscient you know all things your omnipresent everywhere at once you will return. You're transcendent and on and on I could go with the character of God. One word created means while I may have responsibilities. It isn't about me. Most of US spend a lifetime learning that some of you have still not learned it. You still think it's about you. Which is why you handle your money. It's your really your money. If I understand the word correctly bussing that it is God who created. It means. He's the center. There's nothing he isn't in the center of and that also means he's the owner. Whatever you create you own you own it. And since he created this earth and all things pertaining to it he owns it all let that thought sinking in a moment of solitude. It'll change your whole perspective. You don't own your money you don't own your children you're not your own you don't own your life. It is a temporary period of existence. And then you're gone and the one who owns you will determine where next which is sovereign right. This is not. We don't own what we have been given. We don't the rules for what he's created. We don't have a vote when it comes to the purpose of our lives. You're not making your choice about your future. Your determining from the center of Your Life What. He wishes what he has planned. And then you follow suit you get in step you take your orders from him and that brings up two words. We have no business ever using and we often put them together. They're neat little tidy categories. We use to help separate the difference between what is spiritual and what is unspiritual. They're called sacred and secular not biblical terms terms from the Bible. Their man made distinctions. You say well wait a minute if you're in ministry if you're involved in the church or you're praying you read and believe the Bible and you're studying or you're in the choir or you sing anthems or you're an architect design certain sacred architectural designs or you're involved in religious activity. All of that is sacred. All of that is spirit. But but if you're an engineer you're at a white or blue collar occupation or you have money or you play sports. You're involved in a wide variety of the arts. You do construction or you're engaged in sexual intimacy with your marital partner that that is a spiritual secular really. Where'd you get that idea? You're forcing upon the words. Something that was never meant to be forced there and as a result you have your life in the midst of this false dichotomy. This is Sunday. That is Monday through Saturday. Really so Sunday's different. What happens to be the day? We worship it's the day Christ was raised from the dead significant in that sense but different from the how we live different from Tuesday morning or Thursday afternoon. Our Saturday noon no different. Why because all of his spiritual listen to me. I'm not making much ado about nothing. I'm making much ado about everything when you really latch onto this concept your whole work world changes nothing you do is then considered secular even though you may wear different hats all of them or your God given responsibilities. You're a mother of six. That is your hat to wear God given you have no children that is your God given role. Why are you frustrated without children or with a house full of them? Because it wasn't it isn't what you plan. It isn't about what you plan. You didn't create anything you you were born. You really had nothing to do with that. One day you're here and so you spend your life involved in stuff by the way speaking of words a good time to pass along something that I was told by very competent businessman years ago. He said Chuck. You know what I discovered. What's that I found that the one who knows how will usually have a job? I've also learned that. He will usually work for someone who knows why. That's profound knowing. Why is the leader's job? Knowing how is the job of those who carry out the task knowing how we worship is all of our involvements knowing why that's my job that's the job of elders. That's the job of leaders in this congregation. We're we're responsible to know why you see knowing how the practical part of life knowing why is philosophical. It's much more difficult to identify. But I won't go there but I'm not going to stay there. What is always have to do about. Nehemiah everything everything. What a remarkable man. So few people I've ever so a few people's a bank yesterday and the day in the lead said to me shepherds to no. I'm I'm a preacher. She says well you're going to enjoy a great weekend. Forgot you work on the weekend. I said well I do. I love it she really. You're ready with your message. Normally my wife has that question for me but she asked me and I said well yes matter of fact I am. She's really going to talk on us. Said Nehemiah I could have given her a land site on Mars and it would not didn't it less to her a great. You know my yeah unbelievable man. Incredible man a man who three hats all of them god-given anyways so responsible with three terrific god-given responsibilities remember he's a contemporary of Ezra the priest we meet him as he's engaged in the capital city of Persia called sue. Saw as you as A. What's he doing well? I'm glad you look at the last part of chapter one and you'll see the hat that he wore in those days. I was the king's Cup bearer. No-one today we'll tell you they're a cup. Bearer is not an occupation. That's extent in our times. What does it mean Merrill longer in? His excellent Dictionary Defines Cup bearer burst by giving us the Hebrew Word Mesh Mash Means. One Who gives drink to one who gives drink to under continues? He was an in the household who tasted wine and passed it to those at the table. His role was a person of rank and importance from the confidential nature of his duties and frequent access to the royal presence. He possessed great influence. Isn't that interesting to learn that this Cup bearer to the king his personal aide which means what he knew the king like nobody else years ago. Cynthia and our involved with the flag officers Pentagon we were invited to the home. One of the admirals. He was a top gun in the days that he flew and now that he was a three star he was no longer flying of course but a wonderful man and we came to the home of Admiral. Johnson invited this he and he and his wife were there in a number of other officers from the record in the Navy and Army. Were there and with a chance to have dinner with him. It was wonderful military protocol. You didn't just walk in sit down. Eat Hot dog. I mean you have certain arms you take that are yours and you sit down to certain order and Cynthia took the admiral's arm walk along look back and then I have the wife of the admiral on my arm and and we noticed something in the home that we didn't even think about standing down. The hallway is a marine captain. Ramrod attention looking directly at the wall. Not Looking at us. He's called the admiral's aide the aide. What does that mean well in military parlance? He's involved in the admiral's dress his attire the placement of his medals the the cleanliness of his clothing. He knew the admiral schedule. He was very aware of the admiral's home and the wife and the Family. He knew all of the secrets of the admiral's life. Nehemiah is the kings aid just getting started in this message.

How are you running Andy Doing very well thanks. How about you can't Complain Another Day in Paradise? It's not as funny as it usually is. But I'll tell you what I'm not complaining about. Seventy S and eighty degree days and being out on the tennis court as much as I am. So you're never going to hear me complain about much Before we get into the actual stuff that's going on on the on the ice. I want to ask you about which city may actually be getting a hockey team coming to them real soon. Well that's an excellent question. I guess Seattle is the obvious one. Because it's already been granted an expansion franchise to begin the two seasons from now so. I guess that's the obvious answer. And whether there's another one coming. I think we have to be a relocation because thirty three teams would be very awkward number to work into a schedule certainly would create a tremendous imbalance between divisions conferences and the League so Seattle is the obvious answer I always think the Quebec City is in line for another team. Should there be an eastern conference team? That already to relocate Carolina and Florida. Being the ones that's always seem to come to mind because of attendance issues but to Seattle. Obviously top the front and foremost at the moment. That's pretty interesting. I think that he's Seattle's a great option. Obviously but I'm GonNa Steal Marquette's thunder here because I'm going to ask you because of what you said in your statement it kind of makes sense to me. If they're going to because of the imbalance would they need to have two teams a right away or is that? Is that not possible? I mean how would you do it to make it balanced I guess is the question Mike my answer would be. I wouldn't do it. I think. Thirty two is kind of the Maxwell you want to be. I'm not sure there's that many markets still available. That could support a team and I really think anything that moves at anything that moves from here on in. It's going to be An existing franchise. It's going to be within. Its own conference We've talked a few times about the coyotes. Precarious Situation I still think hockey doesn't fly in the desert in the next two or three years that that's the team that's GONNA wind up in Houston Houston would be another candidate if they do decide to expand but once again would have to be a western conference team and to your point I think they would like to to keep the conferences balanced although we have an imbalance now with the addition of Las Vegas is the thirty first team a couple of years ago. So it's a bit of a balancing act. I think thirty two is the number that they've always wanted to get to and hopefully they want to stay at and frankly we have to wonder if there's enough challenge keeps talking some of these teams. So Hey John. How's IT GOING Well thanks Marco. But you doing well. I want to ask about red hat. Flyers man tell me about coming well they. They're one of the bigger surprises to be very honest with you I. That was a team that at the start of the season. I thought we'd be touching goes to make the playoffs and here. We are thirteen games. Left with thirteen or fourteen games left in the season and they're tied neck and neck with the Washington capitals I came with a great history in recent years and a team that most of us thought had a real legitimate chance at the Stanley Cup. Certainly a very good chance of representing the Eastern Conference in the Stanley. Cup final. I I'm quite shocked. That's a team that they've turned around very quickly. I shouldn't say very quickly. They've been building it for a number of years but the progress has been slow but this year they seem to a really taken that big last final step and they've taken it one giant strife and to be better than the Pittsburgh Penguins and tied with the Washington capitals and pushing the Tampa Bay lightning all the lightning or in the other division of course Lightning at only two points ahead of Washington and Philadelphia. So I have to say that Philadelphia has at a pretty good job putting that team together. And Allens Avenue. I think deserves a tremendous amount of credit for his coaching skills. He'd been away for a couple of years when the flyers took them on this past season and and I kinda wondered if he had just recharged his batteries and was gonna come back in top form as a coach and he has Philadelphia Great Hockey town always has been one of the original expansion teams in nineteen sixty seven Great Hockey City legacy by guys like Bobby Clark Bernie Avant Owner Ed Snider Not Big Philadelphia Fan because Toronto in Philadelphia had some pretty nasty wars in the in the late seventies in the playoffs. But gotta give credit where it's due. I I think The flyers have had a tremendous season and no matter what happens something. They should be very proud of. I agree one hundred percent. That's the voice of John. Pulled to professor sports breaking down. Nhl Hockey at this point in to mark. Let's point the flyers winners of nine straight So they're the hottest team in hockey right now but with that being said the second highest team is the Los Angeles kings who have won five straight and they're obviously in the cellar which is going to bring me to my point here about the desert and the Arizona Coyotes I. I'm sad because I really feel like this unbelievable effort that they've put out all season long. John is going to have them fall. Just short of making the postseason. What say you? It's a great possibility You know looking at the standings this morning I would have to think that Arizona is definitely on the bubble in terms of getting into the playoffs to me. They would be the last team that looks like they have a chance to get into the playoffs In that conference seventy four points. Chicago them at seventy I think Arizona's probably the cutoff point For a wildfire that that whole Pacific Division was pretty tight. There was five points cover- covering I think six or seven teams maybe five or six teams in that division. We've got it down now. Edmonds and Vegas are also on a pretty good streak at eight and two both with eighty two points That all of a sudden the coyotes find themselves eight points back with seventy four equal and games at sixty nine. Coyote had a great run. I think if they can continue to play at the pace they're playing a chance to get in but I think they're looking at getting it as a wildcard now. Well Yeah. It'd be wild card and I want to ask you this real quickly looking at the point when you when you just go across the League obviously the bruins way ahead of everybody else kind of in a class of their own with ninety eight points and then you know the next closest to them would be the lightning who's in their same division. Obviously at ninety one points you got the the flyers capitals both at eighty nine on top of there's the Blues Avalanche Nine Hundred Eighty Eight. And then you go to the Pacific and my question is is it just lousy hockey or are these teams. Just kind of battling each other out and and it's better than it looks. I think feels story It's mediocrity and it's very misleading because team that loses in overtime or shootout gets the point so you got a lot of games that are worth three points and you've got a lot of games that are worth two points and I think it has a bit of a negative effect on the standings I can see why they do it because in the old days if you tied the game you each got one point. So they don't want penalize a team for tying a game and then losing it in a shootout overtime but those three point games can be very concerning You know you could almost play five hundred hockey and And make the playoffs which I think is a little bit of a tough sell. I'd like to see it a little bit. Better defined by the way that the NHL operates The only league now that doesn't operate on straight wins and losses so I have my concerns about it But I don't think it's going to change we have to live with it That's unfortunately the way it is. I agree all right. It looks like we gotta take a quick pause for the cause. We're hanging out with our professors sports. John pulled talking. Nhl Hockey on the other side. We're going to switch gears John and we'll talk some major league baseball as my man Christian. Yelich just got paid to stay in Milwaukee and believe me that makes me extremely happy.

I'm sorry John but that that just speaks volumes to me. Man Oh I it is. I mean it's to me IT'S A. It's a great story for all the reasons that you pointed out. We read so many stories about Superstar players that want to play in their home. Ballparks are home territories and in baseball that would be San Diego Los Angeles Angels Los Angeles dodgers for the southern California kids. I think it's a great complement to the city of Milwaukee. I think it tells us an awful lot about Christian Yelich says and individual obviously feels that. There's a job that has to be done on can be done in Milwaukee and to see him commit for That length of time. I believe that will take into two thousand thirty before. He becomes an unrestricted free agent when obviously his best year so will most likely be behind him. I believe that the deal came with a full. No trade no movement clause so he's basically Setting setting his sticks down in Milwaukee and I think the Milwaukee native as you are but I think it says an awful lot for any player to do something like that because all of these young guys now you know they all talk about signing the Yankees the dodgers the cubs so all the glamour teams'll teams the red sox with the big payrolls. I think it's a wonderful story for a guy to commit to a team that has historically and I don't mean this disrespectfully but historically has been deemed a small market town so from that standpoint. I think it's great I hope a lot of other players do the same thing I don't think the salary that they gave him was unreasonable. Either I think the average is about twenty six twenty seven million dollars a year. I mean that's twice the money that he's making now so let's not say that he took any kind of a discount to do this but I think to make a commitment to a team that is not in his geographic region. I think that says an awful lot about Yelich and individual now John. I hate when people do this but I'm GonNa do it right now. Are Your favorites to win the world series in B. Two teams? Well Hey I have to say that you know people are going to hate me for this and I'm not a fan of the team I gotta say looking at it on paper Marquette You know we're we're looking at the dodgers and the Yankees and I'm saying that strictly because of the talent that's on the field and the fact that both teams Have Their checkbooks radio open and willing to sign if they need to fill in a spot because somebody gets hurt or they have a hole in the roster unfortunately baseball getting very much to be a sport. Now where it's the haves and the have nots and the Yankees and the dodgers will always be in the have a category. I think there's a lot of other good teams out there. That going to give them an awfully good run for their money. But you're asking me today Six months before the world series seven months before the world series What I see on paper the Yankees and the dodgers are probably the odds on favorites. Let's not count out the astros talent wise. There's certainly there what's going to be the big question with the Astros is What the emotional issues are over. This scandal that they've been through whether that affects them off the field or on the field is another story. I'm not sure the red sox are going to get back into it. I don't think the cubs are going to get back into it. I think they're both going to be very close. But I think that's a couple of teams that are going through a bit of a tooling process. I won't use the term rebuild because there's still an awful lot of base talent there but Yankees dodgers on paper Would have to be the favorites but we all know they play one hundred sixty two games on the field. Not on paper so You know who knows? Maybe I'm wrong. But that would be my gut feel and once again the Yankees come in to the equation a little paying up so once again Aaron Boone is going to have to figure out ways to to win games with guys that are injured right away so I if I'm not mistaken. Their win total was at one hundred point one or something Or or one hundred point five and one hundred one hundred and one hundred point five and that's the largest The most games predicted to win by anybody in the history of baseball as far as it goes so they are supposed to be a really really good baseball team. And I don't know I just was curious if you happen to catch the Bellinger and Yelich little the little inside scoop thing that they did. Did you happen to catch that Jon Allen? So it's pretty cool. There's like they have this little video and it's about and and Bellenger were there they. They're in a bar and they're just kind of hanging out and they're just kind of talking like like guys do and it's just about how similar they are on the field but how different they are off the field and I thought it was pretty cool so if you can check it out who are some players that maybe have to have a comeback year. Have something to prove the season John. Well I guess the the one that sticks out in my mind is Felix Hernandez. He's the one that comes front and center Fresh start with the braves he. He's been sort of mediocre in the two or three spring. Training starts that he's had the braves obviously giving an excellent chance because I think he he pitched the opening spring training game. That's a that's a candidate I Guess Chris Davis in Baltimore is another one that Needs to make a comeback. I mean here's a guy at a long term contract no trade making big big dollars playing for less than good team and had a terrible season last year so I guess those would be the two that sort of jumped out at me and he always got the guys that have to come back from injuries and then of course you've got the issue in Houston You know as we talked about earlier. How does that situation affect those guys on the field? Is there a mental challenge there as well as a physical challenge to have to to to sort of take the taunting which I think we all know is coming and we talked about that many times but I think how the players handle that Will be a challenge and might sort put them in a bit of a comeback category. And then you've got all the young players that feel they have something to prove Including Mookie Betts. Who is to somehow live up to that great publicity that he got by that trade to the dodgers and the fact that he's playing on a very good team in a contract year and you know obviously wanting to to walk away with a ton of money at the end of the season. So you've got the young guys with teams like the Blue Jays where there's three or four guys that are sort of a young cor Base if you will that need to prove that they can do this over a full season and not suffer from a sophomore jinx. I think there's a lot of guys fall into that category but Short answer to your question. I think. Chris Davison Felix Hernandez would be the top of my list. Now what guys do you feel are only declining share? 'cause I'm watching and see some guys. They're doing okay. But what guys do you feel are on a declining share. Well that's an for me marquis. That's a hard question to answer simply because you kind of have to. What what we're looking at this year as we have to face on spring training and we all know that the the real good guys. Don't don't play that much in In spring training so I. I think I'd rather answer that question. After the first week of the season when we see the regular lineups on the field because spring training doesn't really tell us an awful lot. You don't know whether you're getting your hits against the guy that's GonNa be starting in double a or whether you're getting your hits against the guy that's going to be in the major league rotation that is working on a new pitch or something along those lines and the same thing with pitches at works the other way is he getting a strike outs against patiently hitters. Or is he getting strikeouts against guys that are going to be utility players? A triple A. Obviously the situation changes from week to week but I I can see probably two or three. That would fall into that category but who they would be at the moment I'm a little hesitant to say so real quickly John. Before we let you out of here are you buying into the San Diego? Padres a little bit. Obviously they've gotten out of the gates pretty well what about the Philadelphia Phillies Do you think that they can rebound a little bit? And just just with a couple of the other teams like the. Rangers are up top right now that that's somewhat surprising. Would the MARLINS are not going to be there but with let's happen? Initially what are your thoughts? Well my thoughts are out on Philadelphia. I was thought Philadelphia's better team than they show in the last couple of years Sitting at the top of the Grapefruit League right now at eleven and four Miami and a half a game behind ten and four. I think the stability from Joe Girardi is going to be digging Philadelphia San Diego in Texas. I just think that that's an anomaly. from Spring Training. I think when the real game start will see those teams fall back to a level better than last year but not championship caliber. Great stuff as always John. We appreciate your time. We'll catch up next week. Five pleasures always guys take care. We'll chat next week. Great stuff from John Poulter professors sports. I keep a close everybody on the other side.

Mark Sutton because my man. Mike Wilson is on assignment in Las Vegas hanging out watching some college hoops tough life. The Guy Lives honestly really really tough life. He lives but somebody's gotTa do the job. Right one question. I appreciate you hanging out with me today and obviously You heard the the highlight there and that. Was Tom Brady talking about the last Super Bowl victory that he had which has been a couple of years now but the rumors that are out there. I know you're not excited about because I know how big a forty niner fan you are and I know how big of a fan of Jimmy G. R? So make some sense to the rumors that Tom Brady. And the forty niners are talking to each other a little bit. Tom Brady Fan through and through. I love Tom as you said. I'm a forty niners fan but we don't need Tom. Brady right now if you look at what Jimmy G. has accomplished while being a niner. He's very successful. High winning percentage. And let's not forget. He took us to the Super Bowl people. He took us to the Super Bowl. I feel that this Tom Brady. Rumor was definitely planted by some Dallas Cowboy fans. I'm not gonNa Tell. Ya know that but Off Speculation but. I'm just not feeling that Andy again. This was five years ago showroom with it but again. I know Tom Likes to be driven by you. Know some negative publicity and people dig on him but he's too old right now and we just don't need him at this point all right so with that being said if you are in the market for quarterback and I don't think the forty niners are in the market for a quarterback. I'm with you one hundred percent. If you are in the market for a quarterback where do you think might be a good landing spot for Tom? Brady I think at this point. You know you and I we spoke. It will be Tennessee. Tennessee would be the destination that he can succeed. They have they have a very good team. Have a good team around him and I think that he can help that. Young Court out so Tennessee would be the ideal spot for if it's not the Patriots but I would love to see Tom Brady with tire patriot. Because again living in New England you WANNA see at least one of these teams when because it is in jets. They not getting down right now man. I'm with you I'm with you and you know so I kind of had a little bit of a thought about this since you and I spoke about it because I think Tennessee we we both agree. Tennessee might be a good spot. Also mentioned to you that I thought potentially the chargers because they have a pretty solid running game now that they got back there they re signed him for four more years twenty four million bucks or whatever he's getting right and then you look at their wide receiver core Keenan Allen a bunch of those guys that can they they can ball man and if you think about what were they kinda missing. They were missing that steady quarterback Philip rivers was all over the place. You know so at the end of the day. The chargers have some weapons. They could use a quarterback that may be an option. And then I got to thinking Kinda crazy here okay the Tampa Bay buccaneers man. Like they're to me. They're not that far away. I'm sorry but that's one of the best wide receiver cores all football. Okay we there's there's no there's no debating that that's one of the best wide receiver cars in all football. So I guess the question is is. Do you think James can see that that that maybe they don't need to go anywhere or Tom Brady. Maybe be a decent option there. Tampa man you know what now that you mention it. I think Tom would be a good option but they would have to keep James they have to keep James and say hey. Listen whatever times one you need to do that. Replicate that you can't bring in the older guy and there's no young guy to take lead so. I think that if Tampa is going to do that they need to keep a young guy so they can put us. Just because as you know Thomas forty-three only had about what a year and a half after that. Who's GonNa take the rain but Tampa would be interesting? It would be interesting. I would like to see that. Yeah I I think that's an interesting one. You Know Bruce Arians. That guy is known as the quarterback whisper guy. That has great report with quarterbacks. And you know He. He's done some fantastic jobs. He he wasn't able to get Jamus over the Hump but but with that being said man. I'm I'm sorry but there's something about James that I do like. I like the competitive fire. I like the fact that guy can go and throw five interceptions but still go out there and threw five touchdowns to me. There's something about that. So if if if there's a big man if the guy can see and if that was the problem look out because he he might actually be pretty good. If that's the case right well you know. I know why you like him because he had breakfast. Even matter. What Brett will throw five interceptions. But guess what he's leading the team and James have to go get some contacts corrected Lynn Surgery. Then so be it. But I'm like you. I Love James and I know people wrote them this year but for a guy to just go out and just keep going. That's what we need in today's game and you know I don't have a problem with James. I just want him to get a veteran presence to help him and Nashes what he needed. Maybe Brady can bring that out of him. I totally agree it. I actually think that could be something that that's really interesting. And it would be really interesting to see what Tom Brady would would want to go there. You know so Who knows where. We're obviously just speculating. And there's all kinds of rumors and things like that or they're out there and speaking of that. Let's move onto the next question. Dak Prescott what do you do with this guy if you're the Dallas cowboys because truth be told you and I talked about this as well. Man I if the guy gets Max money then it makes it more difficult for other guys to get paid as well. So what's the problem with taken a little bit less money as far as your salary and then going out and figuring out a way to make money in endorsements and things along those lines and I think you and I are on the same page so with that being said? How do you get this deal done? Because at the end of the day man we all know Jerry is GonNa Pay Dak Prescott Man. Why if I'm Dak and if I'm the leader of a team I'm saying hey jerry this'll I need you to do? Give me some money. Leave some meat on the bone. I get some guys around me because they need help in that secondary the guy tried to keep. Amari also got to try to get you know tied in you know because Jason Witten you know he's looking into but the key here is. Dak saying give me something but also give me something to work with so I can have a team around that would be true leadership and that what needs to happen but if he goes near and take the Max you can bet your bottom out that the cowboys will continue to be the bottom team in the NFC east like they have been for the past year so look man the. They've been irrelevant for twenty five years and Cowboy. Fan thinks they're relevant every year. It's crazy I. I'm with you one hundred percent and let me ask you this. You know Ezekiel Elliott wound up getting paid and then look at what happened to his production on the field so I I guess what I'm trying to say is I actually feel like Dak. Prescott is an extremely hungry and driven individual. And I'm sorry but I don't feel the same way about Ezekiel Elliott. I feel like Ezekiel Elliott. Is that guy that wants to get his numbers. He wants to be a guy that obviously is a huge part of your team. An integral part of what's going on but I don't see him as a guy that that's willing to go and make a hit so that somebody else can can make a play. I feel like he's the guy that wants everybody else to have his back. I'm not so sure Ezekiel has everybody else's back. What say you? I have to agree with you but you also have to look at the average lifespan of a running back. Ezekiel Elliott was like listen. I need to make my money. I need to show that on if I can get it done. Unlike a quarterback you have a few rough seasons and then you know have one great season. Tannahill and everyone. What but unlike a running back you have to be here now and forever or you don't get paid so I understand where people say. Well he's not you know helping not much of a leader but he needs to also get those numbers so he can stay in so he can continue to get paid. But I think if Jerry Jones listening to me he will say. Hey I need you to be to be together that and and just bring a good team together. Bring a good team together. Keep some money but let's get some player than back in and that's what needs to happen all right so with all that being said this is the real question. Is Mike McCarthy? The guy that you think can lead them to the promised. Land at this juncture. Yes and I know you talking from Packers Fan. You probably have some other fillings about that. But I think Mike McCarthy can wrangle that young team and get it done it. Listen if he can do with Anne Rogers I mean he definitely can do for this man. I think when we're talking about those two guys and their skill set that they're they're a little bit different I'M NOT GONNA put back in the same category. I'm GONNA put Aaron Rodgers at And that's not. I'm not disrespecting back because I love Dak. I mean he was a top five quarterback man. And I'm I've got his back. I think the guy should get paid but with all that being said man here. Here's my take on Mike McCarthy in it you can take it for what it's worth because this is obviously free. The guy gets stale after a while and I think that that's what you have to be worried about it. A game that is evolving in a world that is evolving in time. That things are changing. So you have to be able to adapt to what's going on around you and I think that that's where Mike McCarthy really failed with the Green Bay packers. So did he get some time off? Did he get some time to clear his head and get refocused absolutely so does he go. In with a a new motivation. A new inspiration. A different mentality. I really hope so more because otherwise I'm telling you it's GONNA go bad in Dallas real quickly for him he'll be in and out of there before before. Gerry knows what to do with him so I I look at guys that Jerry brings in quite frankly I I feel like they're they're weak individuals there guys that he can. He can continue to control and again. I feel like he's got Mike McCarthy. This guy that he's going to be able to control I agree. I think that you know Jerry wants to be the end. All be all and he has been in Dallas and again. It has not led to success. Mike McCarthy we will see by week three if he knows what he's doing. He has young talent and if he can't get that talent to be productive. Then I'm like what are you doing but one thing I will say that when you have a running back and quarterback like that. Rpo is your friend the RPO needs to be your friend because you have to be able to run past and have different options. And that's what I feel. That in Zeke brings a Dallas if utilize the proper way. But I agree with you. Jerry loves yes-men. He loves guesstimate and but again they aren't equating to win. So hopefully Jerry would get it right this year. Hopefully so speaking about the Rpo how things are kind of going with the with the NFL today. All these column Murray Lamar Jackson. Everybody man tastes them hill. What are your feelings on this guy? Can he be an NFL starting quarterback and always Drew brees is back. So it's not gonNA happen there right now for him. But could this guy be a starting quarterback in the NFL? In your opinion. I think he can. I think teams like Miami I think you know if you look at what he says doing. I think that even again you know. I'm coming back to the Raiders. But he can be a starting quarterback as he has so much potential but also as a weapon he can catch the ball he can throw boy he can run the ball. He can deliver popcorn. He can do everything if he gets into correct system he will be delivered popcorn. You anything man. It's kind of like a potato man. Mashed Baked Fried homes can do anything with that guy. No he right man. He's kind of like a Jack of all trades man it. That's a really really good way of saying I like that. I keep a close everybody We're GONNA come back and we're going to wrap up our number one hanging out with me today. Marquette certain he's on the East Coast Dorfman on the West Coast and Phoenix.

"In your comments you'll like this is this is more likely to get a steep platform than just saying the say the N. Word and get it done. Get it over with already. Took the Kuroda virus to Harlem then That's called planned parenthood planned payroll does. Yeah that's that's they're they're trying to eradicate black folks not us. Yeah so so this okay. So how about this? I want to get off of your GYP. Seidel PART OF THE CAUSATION K. It'll come back Alan. I mean I'm I'm sure it will so a lot of people are really perturbed because not necessarily about the panic of Oh. I'm going to get corona virus. But more of they because corona virus exists the Dow went down to two thousand more points. Day The economy's tanking. It's all because of the corona virus. So it's time for political and economic upheaval and the Fed should do something in the president should do something and then whether he does something or not we should vote him out and get a new one and let him do something to and all that and all that and you WanNa talk about. You brought up like using like making use of a catastrophe whether it was intentional or otherwise. There's all these people on twitter who are talking about how well you know. Trump has based his whole presidency on. Look how good the market is. You should think guys now the market tanks and oh he's going to blame so he's gonNA use Corona buyers. Say It's not his fault. It's corona virus and vice versa. Other people are going to say. I don't care if it's corona virus or not the the markets tanking their for trump's the worst person who ever lived because he's a failure and the real answer is is that actually the entire system is just rotten to the core Raga Corona virus. Like I I want to be very clear with people. The Corona virus is not the potential cause of this. I mean the the the bubble may have bursts. We may be on the precipice of the huge market crash between newest coming. If we're creating corona virus is not why the market will crash. It was just the pin. That poked the bubble. Naturally yes and I have a little wager with a friend of mine who believes that the that trump is gonNA lose in this election and I just. I'm like there's there's no way you're crazy. So we have a little wager. And then today he was saying. Oh see the. It's the economy's about the tank. This is going to happen. I'm like wait a second. What month is this? This is March. Then we got a long news cycle and the constituency has a very short memory if things if if people are not suffering by the time the election rolls around. I guarantee you the trump administration's going to do everything to put. They can't put a chicken and everybody's pot he's. There's no way that that he's going to lose this election. And barring just some catastrophic thing that even trumpers can't deny and guess what they denied just about anything I I saw. I sent him a picture of a Lady. I just found just as I'm scrolling through twitter. I see some chick that says I don't care. What if the sky is actually falling trump? Twenty twenty like these are the people we're dealing with. It does not matter they. They've personalized this man. He is a deity in their religion of state ISM. He's their brand and their behind him. It doesn't matter. He's A- who he is that that's true but but when it comes to national all general elections if the economy tanks trump loses period into story. I mean that's just historical fact mad. Just don't think it's GonNa it's GonNa play it off if the bubble has burst than the bubble has burst. And he's done so if the bubble if the bubble can be prepared. Then they'll do what they always do which is kick the can down the road by continuing to cut rates continuing to print money more stimulus. And they'll it'll it'll put it off until the next trigger right. That happens in that. And so we don't know for certain. I don't think we know for certain that the bubble has popped. I've had this conversation with a few economists. Already who have said? And I've I've just point blank asked okay is this. It has the bubble burst. And and the general consensus I heard was I believe so but one we don't we don't know for certain for a little while and to the financial sector goes to shit before it hits the rest of the mainstream economy and so we're right. Were I mean the election staring us right down the barrel? So it's it's Kinda weird timing. I mean it's you know I mean in some sense if you if you if you had if you had an Obama that was running who was the presumptive nominee from day. One trump would be in serious trouble even if they could put a band aid on it right but since the Democrats bury the Democrats are running a dementia patient as their presumptive nominee. They they might be able to so this thing back together but I mean it's it's but still though it's bringing this back around full circle to the corona virus. I'm not living my life any like I'm doing everything. The exact same hands I I. I'm I and I would be a bit off. Put by people around me. That would be taking very strange like life altering precautions. Like not going out like not like I. I actually read that. I read a thing that target was having I mean you know target is a a big chain store and they sell lots of products because they have their megastores just like Walmart and they're actually having a hard time feeling filling some ships because of people that are just point blank saying well if I can take a sick day all sick day if I have insurance I'll use that if I'm too low of an employee to have sick days or insurance I'll just call off or you know whatever like people they're actually they're they're lose. They're losing lots of shifts and having to call a lot of part time because people won't go out now. I think that's the best mind. Yeah that that's a bit silly. And a mean even like in the states like states who they have three cases so they declared a state of emergency. That's ridiculous like the those people should drag their governors out of their mansions a sewer but they won't because that's ridiculous stretch had a project he was doing recently and so he went to the he works at a grocery store so he went and bought a to get a can of Lysol. So you need to sterilize them things. And he's this other sterilize. The anyways he got the last can on the shelf like really people like I mean. It's so it's so crazy to me. I just a Mike and why people like like. This is my wall of toilet paper because I shop at Costco so I normally have like a butt load of toilet paper because I'm by one of their big packs and so I'm like seriously I'll sell you some dollar paper. I I do have a question for you though. Roca earning the oil situation. Because I was just nothing I was just looking all the oil situation is it. Is it oil is it all or is it depends on what part of the country again from? I wouldn't probably normally say all but so anyways this you know all this tanking going on I was. I don't know a lot about it. I was listening to the little snippets of News as I'm walking around the house today and they're talking about how OPEC was having a meeting or the Saudis were meeting with OPEC and they were trying to like. They're trying to buttress the oil industry of course like because this is not good for them or whatever but now there's this war that started between Russia's trade war price war started between the Saudis and the Russians and people are like they were making it out to be like so many people could lose their jobs and well why not. I'm thinking well that might be possible. But isn't this good for the consumer is like the isn't the whole reason? They have OPEC to kind of make. Sure that prices stay high so that I mean maybe I like said. I don't know a lot about it. So there's something a little backwards there so lower prices are better for the consumer or any time and in OPEC is terrible because that allows that part of the world's oil conglomerates to form effective monopoly hurt other countries with their policies what what would help consumers ally and would lessen the effects of any trade war between any OPEC nations in anyone else but at least referring to Americans would be if we got rid of domestic regulations that made the domestic mining and oil distribution so hard to come by. If we didn't have those if it wasn't all the tree huggers that that got all the laws passed so that we couldn't go drill in other parts of the country Jill Drilling Alaska drill in the Arctic or whatever then you would have more domestic product which by the way it's not like we have zero and a lot of people have a lot of people. Have this weird I I. It's kind of like when when your knowledge of something is only skin deep. You're kind of going by the Cliche of okay. So all the oil on her is literally in the Minority Arabia. No one has any like non like you can't you don't even have cooking oil if it wasn't for your body and so that's why like that's why we don't just like that's why we haven't turned the Middle East to glass. Right is because because literally it would literally be the walking dead and there would just be broken down cars in the streets owners if we if we didn't have that so that's not true but it would be even better if we had more domestic product that is also true. Now it doesn't mean that we need the US government to subsidize or nationalize it. We you need the let the market function. But you need to in a weird way. We're actually doing the worst like nationalising it. It would be technically the worst but in a weird sort of bizarre away like allowing allowing domestic corporations to drill for oil but then putting so many boundaries so many barriers on them that there's not a lot of competition and that you're still you're still dependent on subsidising foreign oil than that that puts you where you are in the market. It's just it's just a shame that of course in his self inflicted two in the same way that trump pass tariffs to because he wants to try to quote him. When a trade war with China for our tax yes so not only are those taxes on the consumer including domestically but that's but that's also engaging in a trade war with a country that you currently have a massive debt to because our debt is so ridiculous we have other nations who own it but but then then when other countries so it's like trade wars get trade wars right so then other countries who say I mean theoretically if other people have tariffs. You still shouldn't have them because they're still a net negative for the conservative even domestically. But because it's like we live in this weird era where maybe thirty forty years ago people finally figured out tariffs were bad. And now we're back. It's just like select socialist socialism. That people had kind of figured out that that was it was less than ideal. And now it's back right and now tariff world is back as well so it's it's really a shame for people. It's a shame for people that I get it. I get people feel like things that are out of. Their control are negatively affecting them and it makes them angry and I totally understand that. Unfortunately a lot of people believe that the answer then is to go to big daddy. Government has. That's in its in. Its big daddy government yours or someone else's or the ones who made the bad odds in the first place having them tweet the odds as just furthering their ineptitude to tweak said odds and then and then and then again at again coming around full circle with corona virus. It's it is a shame that things happen that can cause ripples in the marketplace and it adversely affects you and you see people running on toilet people paper and pure L. and all and in not covering ships and whatever and yeah I mean. That's a shame it's the real shame is what affects the market more than you getting sick the chance of you getting. The Corona virus is nearly zero percent. But the chances of as as people were bitching on twitter today the chance of your 401k. Taking a hit because of the krona because I explained it's really just a but triggered by the corona virus that is much more likely than you actually receiving illness yourself but again the unfortunate thing for people like you and me is that people will be upset and totally rightfully so. But they're going to be upset in government in the ball park can take. This never goes away. That pays the next crisis. They've got more so I. I just wanted to make sure I'm glad you explained that but I I was like I felt like I was on the right track with that but and wasn't sure so because they were making it sound like you know all these jobs often. I'm thinking well people find other jobs but if you if consumers can buy more stuff that means there's more money in the economy and more incentive for people to produce so you know it's just the way that that they spin stuff which I think is really of course. They're not they're not the friend of the people. The media the last point I'll make is that you know. Government intervention begets government intervention and a lot of people. Make the unfortunate decision of thinking that the way to cure corona virus is with AIDS. You know like inject yourself with a worse agent to see if it'll kill the corona virus. I mean it's like Chalumeau right like I mean chemo. Unique yourself to hope to kill the cancer so I mean you. We would like to think that in a hundred years we'll look back on that and be like good Lord Apple it'll be like doing When the bottom back in you know like why would they? The the real unfortunate thing for people who believe in limited slash. No government is We talked about last last week and the week before that you know they government passed federal government passes an anti lynching bill that makes it a hate crime and that's not a power delegated to it in article one section up to Shen. The problem is is that like like ninety eight percent of people wanted. It passed. Eat a weather whether they know it's unconstitutional and don't care or don't unconstitutional. They wanted to pass and win. A handful of people said I'm going to vote. No because it's wrong. They got lashed out at their their their their seats. They're running the risk of losing their seats in Congress because they did the right thing. And so you are disincentivising political leaders doing the right thing and you are incentivizing. The worst among us to take chairs that they'll give it to get they'll give it to you. Good heart is making said and this is the same thing. So if Corona virus kills somebody you liked then there's going to be a parade down your street of everyone saying government ought to do something even if government even if government a is is not is not appropriate to do anything or would flat out them. Doing something makes it worse. If people want it government will give it to them and then the next time anything like this happen government will say well you remember back in twenty twenty. We ended the president of doing this. We'll do that next time. The president and therefore we can and that that was one of the things where I was enjoying the some of the comments that people were making to one of the things that I agreed with and sort of thought with trump being. Why is anybody taking? What a President says about this seriously at all like? Why is anybody even listening? Why is he even commenting on it? It's not something a president can control or he's not a doctor. He has no idea and so people getting mad because he's like you know. Just take some vitamin C. Bro Like who cares what his opinion is. He's just another dude. He's not in a position to know about these things. So why like? It's just so funny to me that they they want to kill him over this or that when when nobody should be looking to government to solve this problem in the first place so this I mean it's it. This is the horrible cycle that repeats itself so everyone who knows anything about government knows that the CDC Center for Disease Control and the FDA food and Drug Administration are just horrific. They're just gawk wicked. They're just God awful by metric you convince and but if you if you throw up your arms assay Laudi Laudi help us. The Corona viruses. Here it you give the in you. Give the power to government to step in. That's who step in the CDC and the FDA will be one who will those will be. The governing bodies will determine what to do what drugs to administer what approve and the fat cats are. GonNa get richer because they're gonNA. They're only going to work with their buddies. If you and me had the cure in our hands they tell us to fuck off. We don't for one of the doctors that was talking about. This actually made that point. He was talking about specific drug and the company that makes it the only drug that really is available for this disease right now. Is All crony with the government and therefore there's really not an incentive for them to find another drug right this minute like they're not really looking for better alternatives. Nothing's Ha who? There's so much that goes into this. That's behind the scenes and so many working parts but the to look to to a president to know what he's talking about on. This is like the worst thing you could do. And he's he's basically everything that they're doing is proving to you why you don't want government in charge of your mocking healthcare like this is. This is the most brilliant case to be made. They make it on their own. They shouldn't be in charge of it. So you know we have a pacman machine here at the studio are you GonNa. Are you gonNA play Pacman when you're here? Sure he'll let me. I mean I mean it's here it's old people. Yeah we'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA Wheel Sheri's chair over to the Pacman seen play. Yeah get my. My hand is permanently stuck like this. This is how I'm getting so I can play with the little claw like player. Stich the ball whatever thing show but And push the button actually. It's more like this but you get me some serious rheumatoid going on. I mean they're gonNA find out if you have arthritis. You can't get corona. Then I'm safe. I'm name wouldn't even worry about it. My daughter has been sick this week. Yes yeah so yeah. You're all dead right that she's getting better. She's a carrier though we'll die she'll just live on without us in ferrol in our house.

Hopefully sometime on Monday march ninth twenty twenty now. Technically the time change on Sunday but that doesn't really matter that much for most people because let's be honest. You don't really feel it till the next Monday until the next day unless you happen to be. Someone unlucky enough to have a job where you go to work on Sundays. So if you're hearing this only a day or at most just a couple of days after the so-called spring forward took place in two thousand twenty. Then you're probably feeling it pretty viscerally right now the effects of this time change and all I can say is I feel your pain. So we're GonNa talk about where this idea came from how it evolved historically. We're GONNA talk about some of the with the practice of springing forward. In particular we're GONNA contrast this with some other aspects of the modernization of time which have been less harmful than less controversial and hopefully by the time. I'm done if you're not already on board I will have made my case a that. There should be no time change and be that the permanent setting should be what we call standard time. So where did this idea of seasonal time change? Come from this idea that you should have just your clocks Ford part of the year in backward at another well as many people know perhaps the earliest proposal for something like daylight savings time or I'll use those terms interchangeably for the rest of the episode. Possibly the earliest record of you know a written source from history of someone proposing. This came from none other than Ben Franklin in the seventeen eighty s when he was living in Paris in an essay. He wrote suggesting that by adjusting. Their clocks forward Parisians could save on lighting costs by extending sunlight further into the evening. Some sources think Franklin was serious in this proposal. Others seem to think that he may actually. You're listening to the heartland news feed radio network. Broadcasting live coming for seminar.

Engineering the arts and Mathematics Peter Midland reports in a recent training that showed teachers how to stay on the cutting edge of classroom tech. A group of teachers hold their phones in front of their faces and using the camera. They're looking at the classroom. They're standing when suddenly a Zombie appears then a warning that they need to reach a safe house or they'll be eaten alive with that they face a series of locked doors and to open them an escape. The dead's grasp they need to answer series of vocabulary questions. Wait what this is. An augmented reality game about zombies. Yes but it's also a language arts lesson for middle school students. This session was part of the steaming. It Up Conference and Northern Illinois University. And if you don't know what augmented or virtual reality means or what the differences. Here's a breakdown. Virtual reality is when you put on a headset or glasses that drops you into a new. Three dimensional world. Augmented reality is when a device or APP alters your perception of your world think of the Popular Mobile Game Pokemon go where the pocket monsters you want to catch pop up on your phone screen. Scamper across your yard or wherever your phone cameras pointed hell. Brinson is an undergraduate researcher. At and I you helped present on a are sometimes uses technology. Besides like Oh. That's cool especially in education like what our students actually gaining from seeing the ocean. Have Your headset. Like what can we measure about? What can we create? That question is the crux of this conference. Stacey Oh Daniel teaches business education and technology at Genoa Kingston High School. This her first in the classroom after years as an education administrator in the private sector. Oh Daniel No. She has some catching up to do. Especially when it comes to new technology and she hopes conferences like this one can help her learn more to keep up with her students shell so attended another a RV our workshop in the fall. I took it back to my students and they taught me. They like to research what was out there. And they brought those applications back to me and that's how we move forward with it so it really was a student led project. She first started integrating the Ar Vr lessons with her school's Computer Club. So they really like the science ones where they can look at the human body and focusing on different parts and see what each part does and how it relates to another part just being introduced to the concepts and platforms is useful especially as a are and VR become more mainstream and while Genoa Kingston high school students explore that surgeons at Stanford University Medical Center. You Three D models in VR to simulate surgeries they can use images from their actual patient to map their strategy before they even break any skin. The education system has to change and we have to meet these kids where they're at for example the. Ar Kids are learning through this and we're meeting them where their skill sets are instead of trying to put them in our box but collaboration isn't limited to conferences. It's also online. How Brinson says metaverse? The augmented reality APP. The teachers were using is a great example. Another reason we chose metaverse. It already has an existing online teacher community so you can look and browse through different games. Matthew Sweat is an undergraduate researcher studying applied mathematics at Nyu in another session gave educators the basics of Unity. It's a software. Engine used to build video games defying. Go through it a bit so that you're not completely overwhelming. Sweat built a makeshift catapult in the software. Three D space. Then he dropped a weight on it and launches a ball across the screen. The software gives you the tools to learn how to build video games with little to no coding experience. Luckily like metaverse. There's an online ecosystem in place to help you learn. Students and teachers can find step by step tutorials quick recipes for simple games as a high school student. You would handed me this software a bunch of videos and said this is how video games are made. I went to even needed a classroom. Setting and Stacey O. Daniel hope to inspire that kind of curiosity when she takes the tools back to her classroom for the next generation of programmers engineers and artists. I'm Peter Madeline there's early voting Illinois. Primary begins next month states. Automatic voter registration system is under scrutiny. Elected officials from both parties. Say They want answers as to how more than five hundred non. Us citizens were registered. Matt Dietrich a spokesman for the State Board of elections says only a small portion of them actually voted. There were only a total of nineteen ballots. Cast over three different elections by these sixteen individuals. You have certain individuals who voted in multiple elections secretary of State Jesse White and his office have taken full responsibility for the error and say the glitch has been resolved automatic voter registration available. When people get a driver's license or state ide- some Republicans have called for suspending automatic registration until more details emerge. Democrats are planning legislative hearing to find out what went wrong. And what can be done to prevent it from happening again? Listeners may have heard some of our series on Illinois students being sent out of states many for behavior modification programs one response we got was for Marcus Chatfield. He's currently working toward his PhD. At the University of Florida he studied total listrik programs for teens and he spoke with our education. Reporter Dusty Rhodes. I have been interested in this topic since the nineteen eighties when I was placed in straight incorporated as a teenager straight INC was a massive drug treatment program that operated forty three centers across eighteen states until nineteen ninety-three. That's when it shut down facing investigations. Documenting abuse and multimillion dollar judgments in several lawsuits are experimented with marijuana as a teenager and I was having trouble at school and the program trained me to believe that I had the disease of chemical dependency and trained me to believe that the other kids in the program had that disease to and needed to be treated as well and I believe it was treatment time now back. I wasn't treatment in any sense of the term straight operated in warehouses and used marathon rap sessions to force residents to confront each other about drug. Use chatfield reconnected with some of his straight peers as an adult and three thousand four I discovered online. There was a lot of discussion from people who were in straight and people who were in I don't know hundreds of different programs and there was a lot of people who'd had a really similar experience to me as a graduate student at the University of Florida. He decided to study their experiences. Were his thesis. He distributed a survey to adulthood experienced therapeutic boarding schools residential treatment centers and wilderness programs and sorted their responses into two groups based on whether they rated their experience as good or bad. He didn't interviewed fifteen from each group. And you know I worked to give a balanced representation and I can tell you that some of the feedback. I've received a it's biased with a positive slant because in my sample the vast majority of people who completed this questionnaire how to really negative experience and in order to represent you know the more positive perspectives. I ended up interviewing every single person. Who had a positive experience but because the vast majority had a more negative experience? I did a random sampling from people. Who kind of more negative experience notice that. If it's like to get fifteen and the highly positive group and fifteen and the low opinion group you had to take all comers for the high quality and just a random sample of the vast majority Yeah I was struck by the fact that some of the people who found it beneficial were conflicted about that. Can you give me remind me an example of that? There were several adults who after they got out of treatment. Their substance abuse got worse or addictions got worse. Their lives really went downhill but now looking back on the program they even though it was hard even though some of them described it as abusive their strongest feeling or the most prominent feeling was that they were trying to help or that. It did plant seeds that eventually were beneficial. Even if it was twenty years after the fact I think you said that a state license is no guarantee of the quality of program right. A lot of the program start with representative on my study. Most of them were state. Licensed do you see any common pattern? Among places have more positive outcomes versus places that that don't I mean. Do you have any way of telling parents or school? Districts look for these signs. Avoid those signs well. I did a statistical analysis of sampling data. And it's not in my thesis but I've submitted it to a journal. It's under review. But the strongest predictor of low quality of experience is the total listrik nature of the program. So the more total Listrik the program. The lower the quality of experienced total listrik programs are designed to change the whole person to do that. They control all communication imposes strict system of rules and punishments in provide a ladder privileges to inspire teenagers to conform. They also harnessed the power of peer pressure. Often using group sessions in which teens are encouraged to confront each other many programs use these methods although they refer to them by different names and my study did not look at you know I didn't explorer will. What program is the best. I didn't do it like that but what I can say is that when I analyze these sampling data. The more total Listrik program the lower the quality of experience but that's by individual. That's not making generalized claim. It's just in my sample. That's what was reported. Did you take survey? Did you come out with a score for your experience? No I didn't I didn't I didn't that's funny. I didn't do it myself. No well if you had to Ballpark. Where do you think he will fall I don't know I have such a complicated relationship with my program experience because on the one hand I'm grateful for it because it really opened my eyes so many you know really important issues like it helped me to communicate but on the other hand it's almost inappropriate to feel gratitude for the program that I was in because so many young people were destroyed by the treatment design. I mean right now. I can count thirteen peers. Who have committed suicide and most of them committed suicide in the first few years after. Getting out and You know you can say well. These kids had problems so they're more likely to commit suicide anyhow. But that's not really true like the program I was in. The parents were expected to recruit families into the program so it wasn't just that these kids all were so messed up that they were predisposed to suicide. It's that you know by today's standards. It was literally torture. Was The intentional infliction of physical and emotional pain in order to produce a response loud. There I mean the number thirteen out of how many peers straight was a big program. So I don't know how many peers had over that sixteen month period of time we've been in the hundreds but I'm not in touch with all of them by any means so just through the grapevine. I've heard of thirteen suicides just as the kids that I knew. And that's just suicide that doesn't even include. You know all the other forms of harm with that was something that harmful it's like it's not appropriate to few grateful for it or to really describe it in positive terms for me. Personally it's because I explored it and I asked people I learned about the harm. I mean if I hadn't done that I would probably feel comfortable saying yeah. It was treatment. You know I'm I might even believe effective treatment if I had stayed insulated from the amount of farms it. 'cause that was Marcus Chatfield speaking with our education. Reporter Dusty Rhodes. You can find out more information about his research link to his thesis. That's at our website at statewide. Show DOT COM starved.

Women's marches were held across the country including here in Illinois Rockford held its fourth the rally and March were cut a little shorter because of the bitter cold but the message of unity was stronger than ever and reporters from Wniu. Were there we start with this report from Connie coons? Cold temperatures didn't stop a diverse crowd of marchers at women's March Rockford. More than two hundred people gathered to express themselves support each other and peacefully march. Jennifer stock held a sign. That said voting is my superpower and I feel like voting by superpower. It's all of our superpowers.

I'm Suzanne Stevens member station. Wbz produces a regular series called curious. City it takes questions from listeners in investigates to find an answer this week curious cities. Andrew Mirror weather tracked down the origins of the term Midwest. Nice curiosity listener shining. Li Lives was twelve housemates in Hyde Park and went the dishes pile up in the sink. Shining just bluntly asked people to clean up their mess. But she says the not Oliver housemates are so direct especially those from the Mid West. My House May at growth this sign and put it above the sink and it says hey. Did you know that if sponges are left like soaking they'll develop germs and be stinky? Oh No it was like and there was a need be like a little sponge and it had like a smiley face. It was like running around with Chinese describing reflects a common stereotype about midwesterners that they're just plain nicer and maybe a little more passive aggressive than the rest of the country. It's called Midwest Nice shining is a Chinese immigrant who grew up on the east coast and moved to the Mid West at the age of nine and even at that young age. She noticed that people acted differently in Delaware. Like you go to grocery store and like no one talk to you and then I moved to Ohio and like people wave at each other on the street and it just it felt more welcoming but as she got ordered she had this nagging feeling that it was all an act so shining ask curiosity to investigate whether Midwest Nice was actually real or just stereotype. If you haven't heard of Midwest Nice maybe you've heard of Minnesota Nice. It's basically the same thing you may have seen it in movies like this scene from Fargo. Where marge played by Frances mcdormand ever so kindly tells a man not to sit next to her. No why don't you sit over there? I prefer that sorry I can see. You don't have to turn my neck or take the church lady from Saturday night. Live who has a very mid Western response to think she finds unpleasant bash obviously th. This is a huge generalization about millions of people. But I learned that there's evidence. Mid West Nice Israel and stems from the region was settled and today it raises important questions about racism and inclusion in the Mid West. I'll get to all that in a minute. But first we need a working definition so I reached out to someone who's thought and written about it journalists in Iowa. Native Paul Kicks. Here's how he defines it. Mid Western Nice. Is this understanding that you should be kind to people regardless of the circumstance and that you should suppress any urge to speak ill of anybody. He says it doesn't mean that mid Westerners don't have negative feelings or thoughts they just don't express them directly but they do communicate them with a kind of code subtle. Sounds I rolls and long silences like his mum back when kicks was in college and decided to grow hair out? This is what she said. Oh that was it with just one sound Paul understood. She hated it. But I mean this is still anecdotal. It's not the kind of thing anyone has data on right. Yeah it'd be based on the data that we have for approximately one point five million people It would appear the it is real so there is data. That's Jason Renfro a psychologist at Cambridge University and twenty thirteen. He and his colleagues crunch data from personality surveys. They found three distinct personality. Profiles each associated with the region. One of them was the midwest which we labeled friendly and conventional which was marked by high levels of extroversion agreeable his conscientiousness and low levels of neuroticism and very low levels of openness so mid Westerners are extroverted agreeable but not open renfro explained it this way someone high in extroversion and low and opens would be somebody who's very sociable talkative but maybe isn't particularly curious or Are Open to new ideas now. Remember that this is an overall trend. Certain places such as big cities like Chicago and many individual. People won't conform but still this idea of Midwest. Nice this outward. Friendliness but internal close mindedness is more common here than in other regions so mid was nice is kind of a thing but how did his westeners get to be this way? Historian John Locke has a theory. He says it comes from the late. Eighteen hundreds when the midwest was settled by farmers or one of the things that is a key component of agrarian society is a high level of cooperation or what the historians call mutuality or to put it in plain. English having a barn raising culture. Have you ever tried to raise a barn? Yeah me neither but I bet it's pretty darn hard to do by yourself or with a bunch of jerks for that matter. So being nice was Keith. But he says there's more to it than that niceness also help people get along and a diverse region in fact the most diverse region in the country now they were racially diverse but unlike earlier settlement on the East Coast where people clogged national origin or religion. Midwestern communities brought together people from lots of different places they came from the South the Northeast as well as Ireland Germany Scandinavia. So you had all these different languages. Cultures Religions in the same place and at the time those differences really mattered so to get along it helps to be nice and friendly but not too inquisitive or critical if there was a disagreement a mid Westerner. Wouldn't say you're wrong instead. They might something indirect like fashion but over time those differences became less important and today most of the descendants of those early settlers are just considered white Americans and this brings us back to question asker Chinese experience in Ohio. She was a first generation Chinese immigrants and a predominantly white suburb. And she said people seemed welcoming but you can never tell if it was genuine. Was that partly due to racism. Dr Sue Vega says yes. She studied the experience of Lat next immigrants and Lafayette Indiana for her book. Latino heartland the white families in the neighborhood. The midwestern families wooden outright be negative towards them and some would even wave and say hi. You know how you doing Or welcome them but there was almost like a superficial to that vigorous that some of these people simply didn't know how to behave around people from different cultures but they had the sense of. I'm uncomfortable while your presence. I'm afraid of what I might say I I'm uncomfortable with your presence. Because you're different and I think that plays into the mid western Nice Because people want to be nice but there's also a lot of awkwardness when it has to do with race politics and that squares with what Jason Renfro found in his research on the Mid West agreeable but not open minded and instead of acknowledging their awkwardness. Midwesterners are just well polite and that can provide kind of cloak discomfort and in some cases even racism but Vega doesn't think the mid West has to stay this way. We want to embrace our differences embrace the fact that we're not comfortable with each other and then move forward in that conversation by then keep avoiding it because it's not comfortable of course to do that would require confronting discomfort and maybe even being a little more open and direct like shining in other words. Redefining Midwest Nice now. Wouldn't that be special tree? City is supported by the Conan Family Foundation. I'm intermarry weather. I just WANNA be happy. I don't WanNa feel curious city as a production of member station. Wbz Many farmers are wrapping up their first year of growing hemp. The twenty eighteen farm. Bill legalized the crop. But left regulation up to the states while nearly all states of allowed it there have been a variety of approaches to the rollout of him here in the Mid West Indiana Cronin with harvest. Public media has been talking to some Illinois hemp farmers. She has this report. The building at the Illinois State fairgrounds was buzzing in mid December as the twenty nineteen Hemp Summit Got Underway Illinois Department of Agriculture's Jeff Cox welcomes the crowd of more than seven hundred including hemp growers processors scientists. And really anyone interested in the Crop Cox. Is the bureau chief of medicinal plants and helped put on the summit. He says the point was to bring everyone together to talk about how the first year of hemp farming went. There's a lack of expertise Just a general lack of knowledge to how to how to grow hemp the best way and we wanted to bring everybody to the same room so that they understood that everybody struggled. He says you're one was undoubtedly turbulent. It's of a good way to start in a way And that that's about as bad as it can get knock on wood. Farmers generally agree. It was tough for many different reasons for one. There are a lot of regulations associated with growing hemp. And that's because hemp is derived from the same plant as marijuana the cannabis sativa plant but hemp and marijuana are more like cousins hemp has much less tetrahydrocannabinol or THC which gives marijuana it's psychoactive effect so to grow hemp. You need to apply for a specific license and then be sure that your crop stays under point three percent. Thc If it's over that legal limit your crop will be destroyed. Ten thousand or thirty South Stocks on suits depending on army. That's like worried about Charles. Brown grows Hampton Virginia Illinois. We caught up a couple of weeks after the summit which he attended in part to learn how to properly test his crop to avoid so-called hot hemp. He says he was Lucky. This year and that none of us hemp was over that legal. Thc lament but once he harvested it. He said it had nowhere to go. Five thousand pounds of biomass taking up a stall of the two stall garage. He says he also went to the summit to meat processors who are licensed to take the hemp off his hands and prepare it for the consumer. But he couldn't find anyone. The issue is common among hemp farmers according to the Illinois Department of Agriculture this year. Six hundred forty four growers licenses were issued but fewer than two hundred. Were licensed to process the crop. That's leaving many growers with nowhere to turn. Once they've harvested other farmers came out just to be able to talk about helping the open. Jared April Peyton grow in Wayne City Illinois and although older generation of farmers here him and they just think marijuana. I think all the you know the bad things that come along with that. They're not interested in in learning anymore about it. You tell them it's not pot they said. Oh well it is. It's the same thing they see. There's a stigma against growing and that's made it hard for them to find others to talk to and collaborate with despite the tough year Jeff Cox says he hopes farmers stick with it he says with corn and soybean prices lower than they once were growing Hump and Illinois helps the state diversify its cash crops. I received several dozen email. Probably from folks that said my crop was a bust this year. But I'm doing it again next year Which is what we want to hear. According to New Frontier data a research firm focusing on the cannabis industry in twenty eighteen sales for hemp based products in the US totaled about one point. One billion dollars that's expected to double by two thousand. Twenty two cox says we won't know exactly how much hemp was grown in Illinois for a few more weeks but either way. He says he's already planning next. Year's Hem Summit Dana Cronin Harvest Public Media. They went away governor. Jay Pritzker signed a law.

Just ahead a conversation with the no one way professor about the history of lgbtq individuals in American governments devender scare in various state elected officials wish soldiers of the Illinois National Guards Safety and success during their deployments earlier. This week in Carbondale from member station W. SSI AMELIA. Blakely has more silence and buzzing of the arena. Lights where the only sounds in the band terrorist center as four hundred soldiers part of the second one hundred Thirtieth Infantry Battalion walked in for the deployment ceremony but the silence and the soldiers were two thousand people including families and veterans. Hoping all of these four hundred soldiers come home safely. Al-ansi Vietnam vet says. This deployment was much different than his when he was deployed to Vietnam while stationed in Germany.

And I hope I don't have to bury these guys when they come back. Enc says the soldiers are honoring themselves. I'm Amelia Blakely University of Illinois Springfield Political Science Professor Jason Pearson's Encyclopedia of Lgbtq Americans. In the political system was recently released he talked with our reporter. Maureen mckinney about the two volume addition and recent roadblocks faced by the community. When I was in graduate school the Movement for same sex marriage was just starting to form and there are a lot of interesting court cases and I primarily studied public law and the courts so I focused on that issue and that turned into a broader research agenda on. Lgbtq lawn politics. What made you decide to do the encyclopedia? I was approached by the publisher to edit the encyclopedia and I thought about a lot because it was a major project We'll have a lot of work but I realized that would be a good resource. For Educational Institutions Universities Colleges even high schools to offer students resource and then the jump public resource on the history of take your rights movement various prominent activists and elected officials court cases organizations so. I thought there was a need for a resource like the third been similar resources but there have been out of date so this was a chance to brings up to even have a resource. That would be useful for a lot of folks. What would you say are some of the most interesting or important pieces of information? One of the most important parts of the work is that it highlights elected officials before Harvey Milk. That were elected. He's often seen as the first but he's not the first openly. Lgbtq person to be elected to public office there were two women that were elected in. Nineteen seventy four three years before he was elected Kathy Cozy Chanko and noble so they're profiled as well as unsuccessful candidates who ran much earlier than than they did in nineteen sixty one. For Instance Jose. Saria is the first known openly. Lgbtq person to run for office in the United States and he ran for the Board of Supervisors in San Francisco. He lost but he finished well enough in a citywide race that it put the issue. Lgbtq curates more on the agenda and it showed that there was voting clout in San Francisco from the Tq community. And that that set the stage for Harvey Milk's success in nineteen seventies about a decade later. Dick and a half liter. Tell us a little bit more about Harvey Milk. In case is listeners are familiar absolutely harvey milk was one of the first. Lgbtq folks elected to public office. He was elected to the Board of supervisors the same legislative body. That is the city council essentially of San Francisco. Jose sorry I ran for nineteen sixty-one Harvey I ran in nineteen seventy-three loss men again. I can seventy five also ran for the state legislature in nineteen seventy six. He lost that race but eventually won the board of Supervisors race in nineteen seventy seven. And during that time he became probably the most visible national to Btcu. Right's leader. He was very active in the pushback to the religious right resistance to lgbtq writes that was rising as reflected by the miami-dade Ordinance Repeal Nineteen seventy seven. Then he needed Brian spearheaded and there was a a law in Miami County that protected from discrimination on the basis of orientation that was enacted by the local government was repealed in a popular referendum and and their their religious right by the nineteen seventies was increasingly using these popular referenda. To Undo advances allergy to cure rights. Harvey Milk was a part of Trying to oppose that opposition. Lgbtq writes in fact he famously was involved in a similar initiative in California that was defeated given his leadership. So I think he's important because he was one of the first the first but one of the first openly B. Q. elected officials but he also had a national profile and had a unique brand politics. That was a reflection I think. Of the new left progressivism. The nineteen seventies is very much focused on the grass roots. He didn't like insider politics and he really fought in some ways the insider politics of emerging gay democratic establishment of the time. There were some of these huge fights between he and other. Lgbtq activists over that and in fact they actually ran a candidate against him In in at least one election so he has unique brannagh politics in that. He was very focused on intersection. -ality working with other groups in San Francisco finding coalitions and the grassroots level and focusing grassroots politics. And they made him a unique transitional political figure in the nineteen seventies and then he was assassinated tragically year later and Became an entire political issue itself. Because the person who assassinated him got a very lenient sentence and most scholars attribute that to the homophobia of Ero. What about the women you mentioned who were elected before him? What did they run for and get elected to yes kathy. Coaching Koshi was a student at the University of Michigan. When she ran for the Ann Arbor City Council and she was elected she was a member of this local Socialist Party. She was a radical student of the time and had very radical Marxist perspective on politics. She ran on student. Issues like affordable housing things like that and was elected a in some ways out of the blue but it was. It was notable for being the first. There were a couple of other city council members in the city who had come out after the election earlier so she joins him other out open People on the city council but she was the first openly. Lgbtq person to be elected in the United States in nineteen seventy four. A few months later Elaine. Noble was elected to the Massachusetts legislature from a district in the Boston area and she had been ineligible. Secure rights activist locally in Boston. Had had a radio show and was involved in local. Lgbtq rights organizations and women's Rights Organization. So she'd been an activist and put more plugged into LGBTQ politics at the time. Then can't because the champion was and that led to success for her in the legislative level although she faced enormous backlash personally and politically all. She held her office for a couple of terms. And then there was a redistricting issue and she tried to make a run for the US Senate from Massachusetts and she finished pretty poorly statewide primary. But she's notable for being the first statewide office elected official Harvey Milk was from the City Council essentially but she was from a state legislative seat in the had a seat at the state level.

What are your thoughts about what's going on now? With the trump administration I think that relates to one of the big themes of encyclopedia and several of the articles and entries and that theme is partisan divide on this issue. That persist to this day. We just look at today. The number of elected officials in the country only about three percent of all the openly Lgbtq Q. elected officials in the country are Republicans. It's about twenty three out of seven hundred fifty six and that's not typical for other similar countries. There are conservative parties in Canada in the UK in parts of Europe where there are a lot more openly. Lgbtq members of those parties elected to office. The United States is unique in that its conservative. Party is probably more anti lgbtq than other comparable countries and that has to do with the connection between the Republican Party and their religious ride. That goes back to the nineteen seventy so we discussed earlier. The trump administration is responding to a very powerful constituency in the party. The religious right that doesn't see. Lgbtq writes in any way as legitimate not just disagree with it but they're trying to roll back the very existence of policies on a wide range of fronts that they can control through administrative decision making and bureaucratic policy-making as well as trying to shape the courts in a more conservative direction to push back on advances that have been made and we're meeting the Obama Administration previous administrations in previous supreme courts to expand. Lgbtq rights and that fight is not going away. I don't see Publican party in the near term changing that very strong anti lgbtq position there are individual Republicans who are very supportive of lgbtq rights. But they tend to be a minority in the party right now and I think it's it is quite striking there so few elected officials that are Republican. Lgbtq partially that's because cats make self selecting decisions when they decide to run they think themselves to have a good chance of winning is a worth. The time is a worthy investment is worth of personal cost and calculated that their party will not be receptive to the candidacy based on their identity. Probably won't run so there are a lot of reasons why we have this huge imbalance on a partisan level between openly. Lgbtq elected officials who are Democrats most of them the vast majority and a small minority who are Republicans. I think there's been a widening name Knowledge I guess of transgender people and I'm wondering if that has been good for that community or not I think it's been both positive and negative. Because on the positive side there have been more openly. Lgbtq people and Trans People in particular running for office. And we we've seen more recently denic. Arom for instance in Virginia who was Fritz elected in two thousand seventeen to the legislature would just reelected. Recently a few weeks ago there were folks from Colorado transgender people elected to state legislature city council members in Minneapolis in two thousand seventeen. So we start to see more openly. Lgbt Q. People in particular transpeople running for office and even been elected. That's much newer. There's more visibility on transgender rights issues with his alter pretty significant backlash of those issues. So if we look at the range of LGBTQ RIGHTS ISSUES PROBABLY L G B issues or more supported these days than t issue than transgender issues. So it is a situation where it's been almost progress particularly recently and we've seen many more transgender candidates running for office and being elected but there's still a tremendous stigma and a lot of social anxiety about transgender rights issues trends issues in particular have been a poking point four the trump administration. Would you agree with that? I think so folks in the religious right who control a lot of Republican party policy-making these days don't see transgender people as having a distinct identity or being valid Lee recognized and law the increasingly backlash. The transgender rights has denied that transgender people exist or they should exist and that is a fundamental religious view that some people use scriptural passages to site but it is a foundational view of the religious right that transgender folks. People don't exist shouldn't exist. It's this whole debate is unnecessary and particularly legal. Protections are unnecessary and those are grounded in very essential views about gender and gender roles that also laid the movement for lgbt rights. But it's being more pronounced these days. I think in the context of transgender rights. What are some of the policies for the Lgbtq community that you would support? I would support gently support a range of pro. Lgbtq policies image of transgender rights. Some issues are very important. Like gender. Marker changes allowing people to change their identification driver's licenses birth certificates relatively easily when they transition Nondiscrimination laws laws that allow people students access to facilities based on their gender identity. There are a range of policies that are being enacted in more progressive states. Oppose them or Conservative states are being contested. A Federal Court and state courts. There's an ongoing conversation about that. But those some of the most important issues I think they're facing particularly the transgender community stays Illinois is one of those progressive states. Would you say yes? Yes recently has been and that wasn't always the case in the last decade so five or ten years it's been a more progressive state on a range of lgbtq issues than it was early and that's a reflection of the demographic changes the Trans Toward Democratic Party control the presence of openly Algebra TQ state legislators and local officials. All those things have I think contributed to Illinois being more progressive state on LGBTQ issues. They were outnumbered out-equipped. They had no chance of winning but they had one huge advantage general George Washington's of unborn millions will now depend under God on the courage conduct with army.

This is State Week. A program of analysis and commentary on the events that made news this past week in Illinois state government and politics at a Speaker House bill. Three twenty two is a bill that was passed in two thousand fifteen would ban red light cameras for nine units of government. We all know what happened to my bill now In two thousand fifteen we have a senator who is Obviously under federal indictment now and we also have a corrupt Program rather cameras at a single reason. I got involved in politics. One went up in my neighborhood and this has not done anything for safety yet. It's been a simple money. Grab for the pouty and many miss. A pallet is just like that these red light cameras have been a crooks in the black and Brown communities for years a lot of individuals have lost. Their cars like cameras have not helped anyone in the communities. We have a lot of work to do on reform and ethics and how we conduct ourselves in this building over the next six weeks and this is not the right start to do it. Our young people need and as representative Willis said they want age and developmentally appropriate comprehensive and inclusive personal health and safety education and they need this education at the earliest grades and a clear young person in southern Illinois. I learned nothing at all about people like me about diverse sexualities gender expression and Gender Identity Illinois lawmakers strained tackle red light cameras in the wake of a corruption investigation and sex education in schools. That's back on the legislative agenda as well. We'll talk about that and more coming up on State Week. I'm Shawn Crawford with me in the studios of NPR Illinois on the campus of the University of Illinois. Springfield is Charlie. Wheeler is an emeritus professor and former director of the public affairs. Reporting Program you. Is He's also a longtime statehouse reporter and observer with us from the State House is our State House editor Brian mackey. And on the line with us today is Hannah. Meisel the daily line could have you back on state week. Thanks for having me and I will start with you. Brian on this Red Light Camera Discussion. Let's go there first It's been in the news a lot in the last several weeks and months It's not always been a popular topic. Among many people. Many people think that red light cameras or urban onerous on motorists to begin with. And now we have some corruption that has shown up or regarding this industry as well. What are lawmakers trying to do this? There are a number of different efforts on red light cameras ranging from well let's just work around the edges and clean up some of the bad things that have happened but but still keep them largely. They are all the way to. Let's just ban them? This is failed experiment. We thought it was GONNA be about safety but it's really a cash. Grab this bill that passed out of the House. This week is somewhere in between Sponsored by Representative David. Mcsweeney is a Republican from Barrington hills. And it's a partial ban. It only applies to about half of the municipalities. That can have red light cameras and Illinois and they're not the big ones so Ah Illinois. Has this thing called home? Rule which is basically gives a local government more power to set its own laws particularly around taxes but in an all kinds of different areas Its own ordinances. I should say. And it's any city with a population of greater than twenty five thousand. I think the threshold is or it could be smaller towns if they opt in so the certainly includes Chicago Naperville big cities like that but there are a number of smaller suburbs where the voters have given you know have voted to have home rule power there and so what this re red light camera ban this limited one that passed the house it would apply to non home rule municipalities in Illinois. What is particularly notable about this? Bill is that it's one that has come up in these. As you mentioned Sean. These recent Federal Corruption Investigations And it's apparently the one that that states senator or former state Senator Martin Sandoval Killed because he was as he has pleaded guilty to he was on the payroll of a Red Light Camera Company. Brian not everybody in in all of Illinois knows what these red light cameras are there certainly more prevalence in the upstate. Area Chicago in that region. you know. Just give us a quick explanation of what they do. Yes so this is a. It's a it's kind of camera with computer device that sits up there next to on a red light and as a car comes into an intersection if the light's yellow and then that moment it turns red. It kinda takes a snapshot of the Intersection. And if one's vehicle is anywhere even over the white line you may not you know the. I think this was pitched originally as well. This is going to be for people who kind of bolt through the red light ignoring it because you know. They think they're more important than everyone else. But what it's done is in snared people who are maybe making a right turn on red and they don't come to that full complete stop fully behind the white line would be like most of us learned in driver's Ed instead. You know the reality of driving is if you're in the middle of nowhere or it's the middle of the night and no one's around maybe kinda come to You know two mile an hour role as you kind of look around but the camera does not forgive and the camera what it does is. It takes a picture of your vehicle. It gets your license plate. It gets your face. Apparently human beings somewhere review this footage. But there's not a lot of forgiveness built into the system and then a ticket is mailed out these can be very expensive tickets and some lawmakers were saying people have lost their cars. They've lost the right to drive over these red light camera tickets down the hand of these. Are you know I mentioned? We mentioned the corruption ingle. That's happened here more recently but these have been controversial from really from start right. When red light cameras were first legalized in two thousand and three? Chicago was the first municipality to get them and then they were legalized for the rest of the state. A few years later I believe like thousand seven but you know pretty much right away. There were issues with the cameras like Brian mentioned you're not necessarily catching people who are flagrantly. Driving through Red Lights. You're really trapping. People were just doing normal driving like I actually have a red light camera outstanding right now and I tried to appeal and they came back with a big fat. Denial and I've had an easier time getting out of Some parking tickets trying to appeal them anyway. but investigations by the Chicago Tribune Revealed a massive kickback scheme for the Chicago. Red Light Camera Program. There was this Australian company called Red Flex and several people went to prison. Actually after several long years of investigations and federal indictments coming down on these people and so there are undoubtedly unpopular however suburbs have a the city of Chicago and suburbs have come to rely on them. for Revenue Sin. Even though you know the argument is always oh well. It's about safety. You know really the. It's because so much of some of these very small suburbs budgets have come to rely on this revenue and so in early. January Controller Susana Mendoza. She announced that her office would no longer be acting as a debt collector for those suburbs of the city of Chicago does not actually rely on the contrary. But you know the comfortable ever had for years. Been basically acting as a debt collection agency for people who were delinquent on paying their red light cameras and she said this was something that her off could do to kind of curb the the programs. Obviously it's not a total ban. But she says she's doing her part and total ban bills like Ryan said Unlike this McSweeney bill they are coming down the pipeline and so I think momentum is building but these red light camera companies are pretty powerful and you know especially the pressure from suburban mayors. I think that's going to play a big role in whether or not we actually do see ban this year. And I think it's also worth noting here that you do hear that public safety argument however as the screws have been put to potentially these municipalities. They are being a little more open about the idea that this is a money issue for them as well and it's interesting Represented McSweeney pointed out in debate. I think it was a tribune story from a number of years ago. Now where they had worked with a professor at Texas A. and M. and found some twenty two percent of my head Increase in rear end collisions. And I can tell you from personal experience when you're coming up on these intersections there well labeled there's a big sign and you can see the camera sitting up there and it does make you. Try to be hyper vigilant. But apparently people are slamming on the brakes to avoid you know cross in that white line and getting the ticket and therefore creating an increase in rear end collisions at these intersections. Now Shirley we heard the Susana Mendoza mentioned there. She's a Democrat. David McSweeney Republican Bipartisan effort may be against these To some extent and that's not surprising. This is this is the type of thing. Lawmakers loved him to get on because the fact that they aren't popular among the Public. And anything you can. You can do to show that. You're you're doing something on the public's behalf at least that's the point they're trying to make here is going to be a popular one. Yeah as as I recall it I think the vote in the house was eighty four. I four no now. There were a couple of dozen people eat voted. President didn't vote at all. But the fact that the ruling four no votes shows how politically popular this is. Now if I'm not mistaken it doesn't the. The red light cameras aren't approved for statewide use. We don't have any in sanguine. Coney for example just the suburbs metropolitan area. Yeah but METRIC CAUSAL AND METRO EAST. The the two Illinois counties across the river from Saint Louis and they were originally sold. His hand has set as a safety measure. This is to Catch people who run through yellow lights in here in Springfield as you approach. A intersection and delight is changing. If you just stop and wait because you know somebody who's just getting a red light is going to go through on. I confess I've done that too. It's I guess. Part of the culture of driving in Springfield but in many instances in his matter of fact I believe one of the allegations against senator former senator sandoval was that he pressured people at the only department of Transportation to okay putting these red light cameras were there was not the documentary. Evidence of traffic. Safety is being important in that particular intersection hand. I let me go back to one argument. I have heard made In support of these in the past. And that is that the free up officers for other work that Maybe there's limited resources on the police department and again always have somebody sitting at every intersection. Just making sure people follow the law so that there is that in some ways that they help in public safety in an overall way. Well Y- I mean a lot of things. A lot of technology a lot of automation they claim to just free up human capital and of course paying someone to be an active police officer and of course later on paying their pension that is extremely expensive. But you know if you're GONNA IF YOU'RE GONNA say over we'RE GONNA improve public safety by doing this automation thing. I would hope that someone is on the other and actually reviewing the footage and calling balls and strikes in a fair way because again like a a lot of people are just ensnared and in the regular course of driving like normal people like I. People always stopped right at the white line. I think maybe my dad would disagree. But you know things just happen. Things come out of nowhere. Sometimes the lights. The timing of the yellow light is off. I think the Tribune also had an investigation about that several years back but they were shortening the yellow lights. Yeah exactly yeah now and this goes to his point I think is you can look at. I think there's a sort of almost a broader philosophical issue here and I'm reminded of that episode of Seinfeld George Costanza is driving and there were birds in the road and they're supposed to get out of the way. We have a deal with the birds. When you're driving up. They fly out of the way. That's the deal. And they didn't and he ended up hitting a bunch of these birds and I kind of feel that is why we don't have a big brother traffic system with smartphones. We have with the GPS technology. The I pass toll collection. It could be that if you get from one toll booth to the next Or Toll Sensor. They don't really have as many booths anymore. But you know you could automatically get a ticket because you're not supposed to go from one hundred fifty nights straight one to the sixty third street one x amount of minutes and you know it could be that we could have these automated devices. Just issuing tickets left and right everywhere. But that's not the deal we have in our society. There's IT's expected that most people will behave safely most of the time. If someone's doing something crazy or agree GIS like that. Spate of hundred mile an hour plus tickets. We heard that the state police was issuing. I think we talked about that a few months ago. Fine that you know. That's something that should be addressed. And that is worth investing the human capital of an actual state trooper police officer going out there to enforce that but I think that you know there's a reason we don't have a sort of totalitarian surveillance state that monitors every every moment of driving compliance with the law. Just because as we were all saying I think that you know you have to allow just have a little more allowances for the ebb and flow of of everyday travel. And it's just not the society I think people want to live in but when we all have autonomous we won't have to worry about it and let me let me move on. We did mention corruption involved with red light cameras. And there's a broader look at ethics in state government right. Now Hannah. There's a commission that's been formed has a lot of People who have been around government a long time who are involved with this commission. They've met met again this week. Anything going on without at this point as far as Do we know of you know we're going to see legislation or are they singling out any type of area that they want to try to improve on? Yeah we've seen I think it's been five meetings of this drank commission on ethics and lobbying reform They face a march thirty first deadline to present a report to the governor on legislators on suggested changes to state law to kind of root out corruption and tighten up other areas of ethics law. This latest meeting this week quiz mercifully a lot shorter than the other. Almost five our meetings we've seen It was about like Ken to people. Hold Elective Office at the same time. I think especially those of us who are not super familiar with like some of the tiny southwest suburban towns like when the FBI raided. Cook County Commissioner Adjustable Skis town in September. Everyone kind of learned that. Oh not only. Is He commissioner to Cook County? He's also the mayor of this tiny little town called summit similarly state Senator Steve Landeck. He's the mayor of Bridgeview and then we also have a newish state Rep. That was sworn in last summer. A Republican from Rosemont Red Stevens who has been mayor of Rosemont for about the last decade or so In his father had been be original mayor of Rosemont Donald Stevenson Donald Stevens Convention Center Rosemont For fifty years and so they're basically. The commission heard like is it is inherently wrong is inherently bad and it seems like the Constitution and most of Illinois Statute has a pretty lousy fair approach. You know as long as those two offices don't conflict than it's fine but of course it's a what does conflict mean are their contracts to be had are there any number of things can come up in so no one's really watching this thing. I think there was a question to a representative from the attorney. General's office like. Are you guys being proactive? And the answer was will hay with eight thousand units of Local Government Illinois by far the most of any state in the nation. We can't really be watching all the time you know there's just it's impossible and so this is the latest hearing there's been Wants touching on other areas of government ethics laws and. I guess we'll just see there's another month until that report is due and then I guess Legislation will have to come out of it. Let me move on as well because there are some other legislation that we've been following this week and I call it sex education at the start of the show Brian but They've been giving it some different names and there are a couple of at least. I don't want to call him competing bills out there but there's some different legislation that would Try to accomplish similar things. Yeah and they they refer to it as health education but I think that you know the the emphasis is on what I think those of us who grew up a decade or so plus ago would call sex education and what is different about. What at least one of the big proposals. That got a lot of attention this week. Because of a news in the capital It's called the reject won't get into the acronym but basically it would mandate comprehensive age appropriate sex health education in public schools for Grades K through twelve and a couple of things are interesting about that one it. The idea is making it. Mandatory currently there's language in statute that says schools may have this. This would change to schools shall have it and the idea of making it in all grades is something different and and again the they do. Emphasize there's age appropriateness so for kids in kindergarten through grade two would-be looking at things like personal safety. Identifying trusted adults that children can go to and respecting each other. It as you get a little bit older grades three through five. There's more talk about healthy relationships and bullying and harassment even getting into puberty body image sexual orientation gender identity gender expression things like that and then in the as children really grow into young adults grades six through twelve. There's more talk about things like consent and harassment abuse violence as well as Contraception and medication and Sexually Transmitted Infections and how to prevent them so would be comprehensive. There is another version of this legislation out there that would be all ages but would not have that mandatory component to it and I should add that parents at least under the first one would still have the right to opt their children out of this education if they did not want them to participate. Charlie anytime you use the word mandatory even if he does have that opt out provisions. It's always going to be controversial. Yeah and I think that was one of the arguments raised by representatives of school districts. Who said you know? We don't disagree with the idea. We think this is very good and children should be educated in these areas in an appropriate way from the time they start school. But WHO'S GONNA pay for it is another unfunded mandate in the school district's have Lord? I don't know they. They have probably hundreds of them out there. They have to teach this. Teach that do this do that. And the state lasers on them and then the state says. Yeah but we'RE NOT GONNA pay for you figure out how to pay for you gotta do but we're not could help you financially on it and Brian I would imagine. A lot of schools do similar types of Curriculum right now but it may not be laid out the way that that this bill requires it and it again. It does not have that A requirement that all the schools offer something. Yeah in some schools may but but there we certainly heard about some that. Don't think that one of voices we used at the top of the show was a high school senior named trae. Graham who identified as Queer in the news conference this week and said that they did not get any of this sort of education about their sexual identity and healthy relationships and that sort of thing so there may be schools that are doing parts of this but the aim here is to make it standardized and comprehensive across the state but school districts would be able to tailor their own curriculum correct. Yeah I don't have the language of the bill in front of me. I think there would be some of that. But there is a lot There are a number of things that are sort of like this shelby. You know it will include in touch on these various things so I think the idea is that you know if if for example hypothetically if there's a more you know conservative area the state where these issues are discussed as much in public discourse. I think that that you know the aim is to make sure that education and Instruction is getting even into those places where people in the community might raise eyebrows about it. We've been watching the presidential race. Hearing a lot about prescription drug prices. There is a renewed effort at the Capitol to try to tackle these prices as well of medications and Hannah Some lawmakers I believe they may have held a news conference on that this week right State REP WILL CHICAGO. And our local state senator from Springfield. Andy Manar around killer should say. They teamed up last year to do a bill that basically capped insulin crisis and they're teaming up again to try to create a state new steep board. That would basically say to drum companies. Hey this is the Max the upper limit that Illinois will pay for you know x drug and go through a list of drugs that people depend on and you know they say it's not like mandatory that the drug companies would charge less than that. But you know there's a certain element of the the power of shame saying like okay. We Are we're saying that Illinois are not GonNa pay more than this and if this drug company does indeed charged Illinois that much than public pressure and then also part of their bill would be creating some sort of commission that would study the issue. Like we've see you know all the time we're going to have a blue ribbon panel to study the issue but this is really a big deal and I've heard about a couple of other bills. Coming on the pipeline. That would try to reign. In the cross. Prescription drugs will already tried to do Similar things last year. But you know we were already doing a whole lot springfield and but this is a perennial issue. It especially as the debate over Healthcare in general redesigned in the president at the Democratic presidential race. This is just a hot topic because it really really does affect people's lives and really only about a minute here left handed but I remember in the past. There was discussions about drug buying clubs. Where maybe the state would negotiate drug prices? All of that type of thing. We're not they're not talking about getting into things like that at this point I've heard of an importation bill that would basically legalize formalize away that the state could By drugs from other countries like Canada but there are safety concerns With that and even some of the groups that you would think might be on board with that Bill. are really not because. I got safety concerns. Let's go to our notes from the Field Shirley. Let's start with you. The Attorney Registration Disciplinary is moving to disbar Rod Blagojevich. Now you might think we'll have. Didn't he lose his law license when he was convicted No because the way it works his law license was suspended until all his appeals. Run OUT IN. His appeals ran out and the commission which oversees the disciplinary actions involving the legal profession is now moving to disbar him and it's likely that occur although it takes several months after they have they had a hearing this week in after the hearing it takes several months ago to make the decision but not to worry because Begovic is now offering videotaped messages for sale through a website. And if you WANNA pay fifty bucks seventy five bucks one hundred bucks. You could get to Lucia happy birthday to one of your best friends or maybe one of your worst enemies. If you're looking for gift ideas and Hanna. Kind of legacy thing now but Of course at political organizations especially in Chicago Thrive on Legacy so the Thirteenth Ward Organization. Which of course is house speaker? Bank Madigan's longtime word organization? Put Out Palm Card which is kind of like piece of campaign literature that you hand out near polls saying these are our preferred candidates It left office CA. Cook County State's attorney Kim Fox and also a Metropolitan Water Reclamation district commissioner Kim who was also former state rep and so the palm port essentially left house two of the three black candidates black female candidates that the Cook County Democratic Party had slated and so people were left kind of scratching their heads. Unfortunately people were eager to talk to me about this earlier in the week and then they clammed up yesterday which I thought was very interesting Brian as there has been more attention to getting a diverse range of people serving in office the Illinois Senate took a step this week to codifying the idea that campaign funds can be used for child. Care as long as it's while someone is doing governmental or political work spokesman for the State Board of elections says when it's been asked about this in the past it said it's okay to use campaign money in this way. This would just make sure that that is put into law. And that's our time for this edition of State Week our panel include Surely Wheeler Brian mackey. And Hannah Meisel of the daily line.

This is Josh Barrow. And Welcome to left right and center. You're civilized yet provocative antidote to the self-contained opinion bubbles that dominate political debate. It is the fourth week of January and this week the impeachment trial of Donald Trump got underway. The first day was devoted to procedural questions. Would witnesses be called testify and when the house? Democrats leading impeachment argued with the President's attorneys Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer moved repeatedly seek witnesses and documents. Each of his motions was defeated on party. Line basis a handful of Senate Republicans say they are opened witnesses but they want to wait until after the extensive presentations from the house and the President before they decide whom to call and how. This order of events has precedent. It's how witnesses were handled during bill. Clinton's impeachment twenty one years ago but before we get to that stage. The senators are supposed to sit silently. Listened to forty eight hours of presentation spread over six session days a structure that is keeping the Senate quite unusually session days a week and on Tuesday well past midnight talk about the trial. Let's bring our left right and center panel has always. I'm your center joined by rich lowry editor of National Review on the right and the Left Elizabeth Brunette The New York Times. Hello Hi Josh Josh. Liz have the Democrats been making a compelling case for the president's removal so so Democrats have been making the case that they have and I do think they've been making the most of the evidence that they've been able to pull together. Republicans obviously are not cooperating In fact finding which means that there are some limitations on what? Democrats are able to marshal in their favor and there are other reasons that Democrats are maybe hesitating to pull as much testimony in as they could but that being said Removal is a really high bar And I think the Democrats are going to have to demonstrate a bit more than they have so far to really put that case the top I think the case they're making is compelling but it's not new. It's the same case that we've known in broad strokes in September and October. The president misappropriated the foreign policy of the United States for his own personal purposes. He sent his own personal attorney over to Ukraine to make demands that were explicitly not On behalf of the United States but on behalf of Donald Trump personally and he used resources that are in at his disposal. As president. The ability to host meetings A resource the technically was not even legally at his disposal withholding aid that he was legally obligated to disperse to them because Congress had appropriated it. He nonetheless did that he did it for a personal purpose and so. I think we know this but the case the house managers are making is maybe necessarily diplomative because these facts. I mean we filled in a few details here and there but mostly this stuff. We've known for months so I think it's sort of foreseeable. This is not going to change minds right. I I would say Adam Schiff but I don't have a huge letter regard for as really been quite effective. I mean he's a really good prosecutor head and shoulders above all the other house managers if they just had six hours to make the case all been Adam Schiff. I don't think they would have lost thing. Maybe gained a little because the rest of his pretty numbing. I think they've been strongest making the case for the witnesses. They've been weakest making the case for why they didn't try to go get the witnesses themselves strongest saying that this happened in this was wrong week saying that the the only way you can hold them accountable is to remove him so it's it's a process that doesn't really have much drama at the end of the day because we know what the ultimate outcome is going to be which is why the media is focused on this subsidiary. Question of witnesses were there. There is a little drama. Because we don't know what's going to happen with that and you can count at least three. Republicans you can see voting for witnesses next week but you need four is hard to know who the the fourth would be so. Wouldn't shock me. I don't know how it's going to the witness questions can turn out. But it wouldn't shock me if he's acquitted by the end of next week do you do you have a sense of what those internal politics are among Senate Republicans Because the four names if they're going to be four. Republicans who demand witnesses presumably is going to be Susan Collins. Lisa Murkowski Mitt Romney and Lamar Alexander and Lamar Alexander. Sorta talk about is the biggest wildcard. He's he's very senior politician. A Senate `institutionalised. He's also close with Mitch and Mitch. Mcconnell do you have a sense of I mean because when Susan Collins Talks about this she basically says she wants to hear from witnesses but she wants to follow this process? To what extent is that sincere and to what extent does that really have four? Republicans behind it because it sounds. I mean the White House appears to be acting like they expect that. Republicans may force witnesses to be called. I don't know how sincere it is. The way it's set up it. It quite possibly could have a very senate result to this. Which is don't be a vote on whether they should have witnesses and it's possible you got for Republicans for that. Certainly Susan Collins is going to vote for that but then you actually have to have a vote that can be amended on which regions says you're GonNa have and that's where you can see kind of poison pill amendments to say a measure saying we're GONNA hold we're GonNa have John Bolton you're calling for Hunter Biden or Joe Biden. I would think Democrats should take a hunter Biden John Bolton trade in omitted. I mean hundred sad sack but only knows about Ukraine is that he got paid a lot of money for not really good reason. We know that plus people probably feel sympathy for Emily's Democrats that matter the most for Joe Biden at the moment we're whereas John Bolton was at the center of this and his What he says will be played up as one of the most explosive You know piece of testimony last ten years and you can easily guess he's going to be very harsh about what the president did here is. What have you made of this trade discussion with Joe Biden? Ended up shooting down later in the week. I mean I I I understand the logic of what rich lays out there but I think if this were a court trial you wouldn't call Hunter Biden because Hunter Biden is not a relevant witness. He doesn't know anything about the president's behavior here and so I think that you know the to the extent. Democrats are taking this seriously as a trial to agree to that. You know for for political reasons. I think it creates a sideshow which is one reason not to do it. It does create a sideshow. But I feel like the Biden's are in a position at this point where there's no way not to have a side show because it also creates a side show To refuse to address What's going on with Hunter Biden in what has happened with Hunter Biden? And you know especially as trial wears on Along with the Democratic primary more and more questions about Biden corruption are gonNA come up. They've already come up. People do have questions about Hunter Biden and the Biden sort of resolutely trying to suffocate this by refusing to address it head on I think only adds fuel to the fire and the sense that there's not a lot of transparency around what's going on with Hunter Biden. So is it sensible to have a biden for Bolton Trade You know I don't really think so for the reasons you point out It's not going to add a lot to the impeachment proceedings but holding Biden back and refusing to address. These issues around corruption directly is also going to have An inflammatory effect. I think in the long run. I don't know about your first. Call Him at the New York Times. The first of all congratulations is is on these these issues and I think you lay out a number of of of good arguments about things that you know. Hunter Biden getting appointed to the Amtrak Board when he had no apparent expertise that was related to that except that his father was the vice president And there there are these issues. The problem is that the stuff that president trump has accused. The Biden's of doing is completely separated from anything. The Biden's actually did. It's basically a made up account of what Joe Biden was up to pressuring people in Ukraine to shutdown investigations win Joe Biden was actually pushing for more robust anti-corruption push in in Ukraine. And so the problem is the well. I think you're right that there are real problems surrounding entre. Biden's lobbying activities. And then you know the you can. We can also talk separately about stuff related to to Delaware banks and that sort of thing when you allow that discussion to be combined with the president's essentially made up discussion about what the Biden's are up to a grants legitimacy to conspiracy theories and nonsense that the president is throwing them. I certainly understand why the Biden's are unwilling to engage in that. I understand that as well and I think that You know Joe Biden has good reasons for not wanting to go down this road but I think the issue is that it's difficult for voters to distinguish between the good reasons for not wanting to Discuss and accusations of corruption and potentially bad reasons. That's one of the successful parts of this campaign of trump's against Biden is that it has introduced the issue onto the record and the issue of Biden's corruption as you point out does have ridiculous and unfounded aspects to it but then it also has aspects. That are much less ridiculous and much more worrying. So for the Biden's it's going to be a matter of Trying to address this I think in a way that helps voters distinguish between those two and at the end the day. I don't think there's An answer that the Biden's can give that's going to clear the whole thing up rich. Do you think the president's getting this to stick. I mean I it seems like an effort to replay the Hillary Clinton playbook the differences that you know Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton had a four decade track record to build on that sort of made it easy to stick accusations of them. I think it's harder Joe Biden. I think that's right. Yeah Hillary had Thir- thirty years of being radioactive there that that made it easier for people to believe the worst certainly for Republicans to believe the worst. I do think we'll hear more about this and I don't think Joe Biden himself is is corrupt or fire this pressure to fire this prosecutor corrupt reasons but he does represent kind of the worst aspects of our public life which is people around famous and prominent people get rich for no very good reason and this is true of hunter. It's true of other people around Joe Biden on on the question of relevance I think there's enough relevance for Republicans to hang their hats on to to say they want hunter because it's become an issue was there any legitimacy in one eight to investigate brisman and house managers. Say No and the the White House team says. Yes so. Hunter has some relevance to that but it but it seems to me the question is not could there have been irrelevant reason to task the. Ukrainians to investigate. The I think the answer. That is still no But the better question is did. Donald trump have valid reason for wanting them to do that and so the idea that Donald Trump did this out of a concern about foreign corruption. Donald trump is literally out there saying that the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act should be repealed because it is an unfair disadvantage to US businesses. That they are not allowed to pay bribes abroad. So even if even if you could and I think it would be extremely thin to say that you say that it was appropriate. Us policy priority for the US to pursue push this specific investigation of corruption in Ukraine. That was obviously not Donald Trump's priority. If if he was making that claim it would have been an obvious pretext because the president is objectively pro foreign corruption. Yeah and he focused on this because of Joe Biden That that's obvious but the the what the a White House team is making the case. I think they're wrong. They're saying it has to be crime involved Impeach me can't impeach over abuse of power. That's wrong but they're making the the prudential case. I think is stronger when they say. No presidential impeachment ever has not involved a bright line violations of criminal law. And that's not here and when it's not there you do get into murkier. Area of subjective intent. I I read your column on this this week. You said that removing the president over this would be insane and it seems to be your argument. Here is self limiting. You basically say that you know would be insane to remove the president in part because you know the public opinion about is so close it would be incredibly divisive and poisonous to our politics but those of course are also reasons that the president will not be removed to the because the public opinion is so divided you cannot Marshall Republican votes for his removal if Republicans were voting to remove him it would be because he was extremely unpopular and it would no longer be so divisive. And so you know I mean you and your colleague Ramesh Manure at at National Review is split on this and Ramesh says that this the the political fact that the president won't be removed as actually a reason to be more inclined to impeach over these issues. Say you know. What is the riskier? Do we want more elected officials to go on the record to say that using the resources of the federal government for these personal purposes is improper or. Do we want fewer saying that? What what do you say to the fact that because of this this exact political limitation that makes the impeachment a more reasonable choice because it sends a message about what the president did? I think that's reasonable everything. Ramesh believes is his very reasonable On any given issue I disagree on this. I just don't think this is the only way to hold him accountable or the only way to get people to say it was wrong. In fact by upping the stakes of it you know at the margins you might have even fewer Republicans of being willing to say. It's wrong because they fear the consequence would be you know a slippery slope to moving him but his you expose what happened. You make case It's wrong there are all sorts of other things you can do. I may be the only one. The country believes it's bizarre to invite. The president who thinks is such a dire threat to the public interest into the nation that he must be removed tomorrow to into your chamber for a a majestic setting for to give his view on on the state of the world. Why it seems to me you would I not invite him? Then try to the next step escalation laterally trying to remove them so there are all sorts of interbranch comedy. You can deny them and you can censor him without getting yourself in the ridiculous position of really saying you want him Removed ten months before the election. And this will be the backstop like for next couple of days. We'll hear the only way to hold them accountable. Remove them whenever they not removed. They'll say oh. He was held accountable because he was impeached. Because it's a form of censure so I think the lesson of the Republican impeachment. That was very similar and a lot of respects. You know had no hope impeachment in the Senate and this one is that this isn't a good model and it's it's better if you want to censor a president just to censor them. We'll lose. I mean one difference between this impeachment and the Clinton impeachment twenty one years ago. Is that while the polling is not strong enough to actually lead to the president's removal here. It's a lot stronger than it was. Then you know you're you're pulling in the high forties Saying that the president should be removed and instead of closer to thirty. And so I'm wondering. Do you think that this has been a useful exercise? Do you think That it acts as as a significant center of the president you said at the outset of this discussion That the Democrats would need to do more push their case over the top. What else is it that they quarter should have been doing that? You think would move. More of public opinion made this a more effective accountability measure for the president. I mean it's difficult. Because it's a protracted process as you pointed out it's taking place over several hearings and many hours so it's difficult for the average voter on to sit down and watch it in its entirety. I think Nancy Pelosi in her handling pleaded pretty smart. I think in general the public is well ish informed on what the core issue is. They're probably could have been a little bit more effort on that front at clarifying. What trump is actually guilty of in the ways in which is and isn't distinct from the other bad things that everyone already him of but in general I mean. That's the challenge. The Democrats have here is sort of getting across the average American Not only what happened but why it's big problem in how it fits in with the democratic narrative about trump being in general a sort of corrupt self serving leader whose putting American foreign interests It at risk with those habits. Let's take a break. I'll be back with rich lowry of National Review and Elizabeth. Burning of the New York Times to talk about public opinion and the two thousand twenty race. You're listening to left right and center. You're hearing from our left right and center and we want to hear from you to tweet us at eller see KCRW and download the free kcrw APP to listen to left right and center on demand back again with left right and center. I'm your host Josh Barrow. On the rich lowry editor of national review on the left is Elizabeth Brunette columnist at the New York Times. When I say I don't think the impeachment proceedings have changed many minds. I'm not just making an anecdotal observation. Polling on impeachment has been remarkably stable. There was one big move in October when House Democrats said they would proceed with impeachment. That move coalesced. Nearly all democrats an increased number of independence around the idea that Donald Trump should be removed from office. And since then not very much the fivethirtyeight tracker show support for removing trump. Hasn't budged from forty seven to forty nine percent range over the last three months to talk about public opinion on impeachment and also the State of the two thousand twenty election race we're joined now by RL Edwards Levy reporter pulling editor Huffpost High Rl. I so do I have that. Characterization broadly right that this has been very stable since we started this process in October. Yeah absolutely I mean. I think when we saw the real movement on impeachment was way back when the Democrats in Congress finally decided okay. This is an action that we're going to take. And at that point you did see especially among Democrats but even outside of the party opinions swinging toward impeachment and since then basically it's sort of ossified On very familiar partisan lines. And at this point you have this fairly. What looks like a movable status where Democrats basically are wholeheartedly for impeachment and removal of Republicans are against it and many of the people who might still be persuadable which there are those people but they're also the least likely to be paying attention at this point in the process. It seems to me like this is part of a broader trend that the president's own approval rating has been remarkably stable throughout his presidency. Most presidents really have significant moves up and down and approval. The president has moved in a very narrow band. He's been unpopular but he doesn't get a lot more and less unpopular. Do you have a sense of what the reason is for? That is there a structural change in American politics? That means that people don't change their minds as much is something specific to Donald Trump. What's with all this noise and our politics? What what is this? What is with this sort of weird stability in the political situation? I think that there are a couple of reasons for that. One is I think something that underlies even Donald Trump or you saw this with the Obama Administration and even a few administrations before that which is that increasingly opinions. Are Polarized. There was a time in American history. Where a president could have majority approval among the opposite party? And it's very very very hard to imagine that happening. At this point you know. The last election was the first time in a very long time that we'd seen too unpopular candidates running against each other rather than two candidates who are generally liked. So there's this sort of real partisan stasis that's hard to work off of the other thing beyond that I don't think we've seen any of the sort of events that might actually cataclysmic shakeup president's approval. You know there hasn't been a gigantic economy crash. There hasn't been a gigantic foreign policy You know event or some sort of you know. God Forbid Act of terrorism. Something like that so you haven't seen anything capable of breaking through that stay safe. Well I mean there was a scandal that was significant enough that it led to the president's impeachment. I mean I think with a normal president. Wouldn't we think of that as the sort of cataclysmic event that might move these numbers? Yeah that's true and I think maybe one way of characterizing that would be to say something that breaks through that partisanship whereas this is something where your opinion of a scandal about President trump I think is going to depend a great deal on what your opinion of trump was before that. And you know maybe that itself is a sea change in American politics. But I think that's where we are right now. This stability strikes me as missed opportunities on both sides. I mean I reached out to look at the Republican side. The president presides over an economy that is objectively quite strong that subjectively people in surveys report an unusually high level of satisfaction with the economy. It's remarkable to me that over three years. The president has failed to seize opportunities to turn that into greater popularity. And some of the things you know. Sometimes when Democrats will talk about this. They'll propose things that would be very unpopular with the Republican base. You know it's not. It's not that he should have embraced obamacare or that. He should have done some comprehensive immigration reform. Not Not that he should have done those things for us as a political matter. I mean but there are other things he could have done some big infrastructure package right. Now he's talking about as as he always does about. Maybe we're GONNA have another tax cut package and it's going to end up being something that be dio a with Democrats in the house. He could instead attach himself to something like the the Romney Bennett proposal to further expand the child tax credit. That's something that you could conceivably get through a divided Congress that you could then wave at voters as a as a tax cut for the middle class. That is improve their lives. He he seems to have no instinct at all to find ways to to to get the on the wrong side of wedge issues do things that would be popular with more than just the forty percent forty two percent of the country that says they like him. Well the first key to Budging numbers would be acting more presidential which is not capable of and doesn't have any interest and doing and then it would be taking advantage of his his heterodox say as as you say to pursue some interesting altar legislative alternatives with Democrats or at least Wrongfooting them by making proposals or Republican. Usually wooden and he does have an instinct towards doing this in theory. He just doesn't have any idea of how to carry out and practice in the the only initiative that that really qualifies as he did get a Lotta Democratic votes as we talked about last week for the US MCA but otherwise he just hasn't been able to carry off anything. And then the flip side of this for Democrats. Liz Is that I think that they sort of look at trump they see. Is this obviously horrible? President in person and yet they can't seem to get his approval rating under forty in the last two years. Yeah and I mean that's a signal of something that's going on in American politics writ large. I think it probably has a lot to do With the ways in which Democrats have approached trump voters I think that those efforts While well intended by Democrats a have kind of produced Irwin increasingly strong resistance So every sort of overture Democrats make To try to diminish trump's support Ends up kind of inoculating Trump supporters against further modes of persuasion. I think another problem is democrats themselves are torn on how to handle trump supporters. I think some Democrats feel like we Democrats we. The left ought to try to win them over and convinced them to support left candidates but other Democrats feel like these These trump voters are just reprobate centers. And we shouldn't be trying to win them over because incorporating them into a dim base be toxic another area where we're seeing this unusual stability I think is is the Democratic presidential primary You they're different polls will vary here and there but if you look at the polling averages Joe Biden has not at any point given up his lead in the polling average Area what do you think is the state of that race right now? People are talking about a Bernie Sanders surge and he has moved up in the polls although he is still in the fivethirtyeight tracker seven points behind Joe Biden and the national polling Yet you have prediction markets that give Bernie Sanders. Nearly as high a chance of winning the nomination as Joe Biden. So is this. Is this a stable race with Biden and a comfortable lead the whole way ors or is it less stable than it looks I mean prediction markets will never be by choice for looking at Sort of where to start measuring the state of the race. I think what's happening right now. Is We're in a place where it's very hard to tell what's going to happen. I think you know Joe Biden. The majority of polling still shows him up ahead. There's a lot of polling especially in Iowa indicates that it's very very very close in that. I don't think you know any of the top tier of candidates there which is Biden Sanders and war and Buddha judge. Anyone pulling that off. I don't think would be a total total surprise What you do see I think in that the one thing that pulls have been consistent on is that this is a race with enormous potential for volatility. The you what you see is that people are considering multiple candidates. A lot of people are not completely locked in and so I think you know Iowa look at this point like it could really go at any number of directions. I think once we see what happens in Iowa potential for things to reshuffle. You know I think Biden comes in with the advantage of having been some degree of a front runner for a very long time now and not really seeing. His numbers budge that much but at the same time. I think it's pretty easy to imagine a scenario where you know. He's not a strong front runner for that to actually carry through once. People Start Voting Luis. Do you think Bernie's position is stronger than than the national polls would indicate. I think there's a chance of that I think that the national polls are You know I'm cautiously optimistic about them. let's put it that way there's always concern about a candidate of sort of peaking early on But I think is actually pretty. Good timing for Bernie running up to Iowa. Things are looking good in New Hampshire on California And so you know. I think it's worth being optimistic about Like Ariel said. There's a lot of potential volatility. Here you can see. That Biden is ramping. Up Attacks on Bernie He's going to. I think pivot next. Bernie's record on guns And also Bernie is ramping up attacks on Biden where it comes to corruption and entitlement cuts At the exact moment those issues at least corruption are central to the impeachment trial so there are a lot of open questions here arl another way in which the polls are moving as Mike Bloomberg. Who's spent like a quarter billion dollars on national advertising so far has been moving up in the polls as a result of that. He's he's taking fourth place in the fivethirtyeight tracker outpacing mayor. Pete Buttigieg what do you make of the growth of that support? What does it tell you about the way that at money matters for polling and does does it add up at all in terms of a strategy to because he's not running in the first four states To somehow overtake the other candidates on Super Tuesday. It really is fascinating and Bloomberg. And you know Tom Steiner. Also it almost seems you know already made science experiment on the impact of money in Running in these primaries and it does show you that you know in a primary like this where getting your name out and getting a slice of the public attention is so crucial that you really can buy that to some extent. I think you know at the same time. Look I'm never gonNA count anyone out especially after going through the two thousand sixteen primaries. It's hard for me to imagine that strategy being something that gets you not only at the table but actually carries you through especially once people start tuning in earnest. Which is you know just starting to happen now for I think the majority of primary voters are only now really starting to very seriously consider their options. So I don't know if that's enough of a strategy to actually win especially if you're not competing in early states the races at least in the national points quite stable at the top in terms of Biden. But there's been significant shifts underneath them and the one that's happening now is. Bernie's clearly on the rise. It's entirely plausible to see him. Winning Iowa and New Hampshire and in which case it's an enormous step towards winning the nomination of the internals and some of these polls show that Democratic voters crucially View him now is kind of a normal Democrat. One of these polls that had Voters exactly Democrat. Voters saying they'd be basically exactly as excited and or concerned about Bernie winning the nomination as they would Joe Biden winning the nomination there's CNN national poll might be a little outlier had Bernie actually ahead in the horse race but Also had him ahead narrowly among non white voters over Joe Biden he strong among Latinos you strong among Young African American voters. So if our Liz I I would be Very optimistic about what might might transpire. Here what do you make of the Bloomberg phenomenon? Rich because the president has been reacting to it Mike Bloomberg Baden. Baden add on Fox and friends and his manager which was on Fox and friends and the president Got On twitter to attack Mike Bloomberg. And you know the. There's two things here. I mean. One is Mike. Bloomberg is Richard Than the President Maybe it annoys him to be tweaked by him but the other thing is the Bloomberg has signaled that he's GonNa keep spending money even if he's not the nominee So this could be a key part of the strategy to take down the president with any candidate for Democrats. Yes I think people tend to overestimate Just how much you get from needling trump and the Bloomberg line. The other day is some people say you know. They're going to be to New York billionaires. Who's the other one besides me? Which is another great line to get under. Trump's skin ended the days in doesn't get you much but you know five hundred million or whatever what would be the number of negative ads Counts for something. I have to say if Bloomberg still real factor. Come Super Tuesday. And it's a a Bernie Biden race. I would think Bloomberg's effect would have to help Bernie right. I mean you'd think he's he's a Bloomberg would be taking votes from Biden rather than Bernie and another thing about the Bernie. Scenario DOESN'T GET FIFTY PERCENT. He just needs to have a couple more delegates and some more votes than anyone else gets to a contested convention and it's going to be difficult or impossible to take it away from him Liz Rich mentions Bernie being perceived as basically a normal Democrat by by Democratic voters. It feels to me like there's a big split there between the electorate and the professional class of the Democratic Party People who are Democrats for a living really care about whether you're a member of the party or not in a way that that ordinary voters may not care and of course we saw Hillary Clinton Deciding to speak up here and saying well first of all declining to To commit to support Bernie if he's the nominee and saying nobody likes him which is a manifestly untrue claim But it seems to me that she speaks for some fraction of at least the party. Institutionally and maybe some fraction of the electorate although certainly not most of the electorate as as rich notes there yes and she was I think being as truthful as she ever is When she nobody likes Bernie which is true. A in a certain respect None of the super rich people that Clinton's associated with socially like Bernie. That's all true and those are also reasons that ordinary people do like Bernie And so I. I don't think it's going to be harmful for him. Ultimately to have Clinton go on the record like that. What be difficult for Bernie Is If Obama decides to go on the record as having a serious reservations about Bernie There's been some reporting that suggests. Obama is contemplating that we know. That Bernie isn't really the kind of candidate. Obama seems fond of and that he probably would prefer somebody else Be that JOE or another Democrat in the running But if Obama decides to come out And and sort of Publicly push back on the Bernie ascendancy. That can be a real issue because I think rank and file Democrats do favor Obama quite a bit and and do respect his opinion quite strongly. So that's an outcome that. I'm a little bit concerned about in terms of Bernie's chances of Hillary's issues with him and trying to fire up ordinary Democrats about Bernie having been an independent hiding. Those are dead ends. I'm skeptical of fat reporting about Obama thinking about coming in with a warning against Bernie and that came from Charlie Gas Perino at Fox business. Charlie is very well sourced with people on and around Wall Street including with with Democrats who who are on Wall Street activists. Democrats but the sort of people that he would have been talking about that. I'm not sure that they're reliable. Narrators of what Obama's thinking maybe a little bit of wish casting. I'm sure that there are Democrats on and around Wall Street. Who wish that Barack Obama would do that. I don't necessarily take that as a as a claim that allows thinking about doing that. I also think if Obama wanted to involve himself in the race. There'd be no reason for him to do it on the terms of I don't like Bernie stay away from Bernie he would just endorsed. Joe Biden his former vice president and I think it sort of telling that he has chosen not to do that so far. Well there's the split you asked Elizabeth between the establishment and an actual voters goes to Y. A. Desperate Stop Bernie campaign if it comes to that say if he wins Iowa new after it was perfectly possible Biden Biden could win both but might have the same effect of the Stop. Desperate stop trump campaign in. The Republican. Primaries didn't work in part because there was a split and average voters view trump with the same alarm that The elites in the the establishment did another analogy is. You'd think there's a lot of material to work with and the kind of Democrats I attended to see or you know former officeholders in these types and they just they just think he's GonNa be nuked by Super PACs with all the stuff honeymooning in the Soviet Union and all that but We thought we had tons of material against Trump as well and voters just didn't want to here. Yeah what do you? What do you make of that when people talk about electability and they sort of they try to figure out the strengths and weaknesses of these candidates based on where they're pulling in the primary right now? Is there any way to adjust for attacks? That haven't been aired in a primary. I mean because there are certain things like you know Bernie. Sanders is for decriminalizing illegal. Entry into the United States that is not a flash point in a Democratic primary. That's something you'll hear a lot more about in general election. Of course maybe there are also things about Joe Biden you will hear more intense attacks related to two hundred Biden and some of the corruption issues that that Liz islets Than you've heard in a in a Democratic primary where people are playing nice. Is there any way to figure out which of these candidates are actually in the stronger position for general election that I think that's so hard and I think you know it's plausible to make an argument for pretty much any candidates either positively or negatively? At this point I think any sort of general election polling is kind of a blunt instrument. You know what it can tell us right now is that it looks like a general election. Matchup is GonNa be closed especially in battleground states. It tells us you know that there might be some variation between how different candidates play out. But you're not seeing something. We're one of the top. Tier candidates is just notably notably like running like consistently like thirty points ahead of everybody else thirty points behind everybody else when pitted against Donald Trump. So it's hard to look at that and say you know we can pricin what attacks are GONNA work? If people knew how to do that it would be a whole lot. Easier to run campaigns. And I think when you look at the electability question among Democratic voters. It's also a little complicated because on one hand Joe Biden has consistently had an advantage. If you ask who is the most electable candidate on the other hand? I don't think most Democratic voters see electability as zero sum game when we've asked them this in surveys. What we found is that most people think that there are multiple candidates who have the ability to win. And you see something like about a quarter saying that. They're voting for candidate who they think is going to be more electable over their favourite candidate but the majority saying. I'm going to vote for the person who I like. And they may consider that person to be the most electable. But it's not clear that which way the causalities running there wouldn't make that claim still with me are on the left. Lisburn of the New York Times on the right lowery of national review and also earlier words of Huffpost. And now it's time for tweet the week sometimes it only takes one hundred forty characters or maybe two hundred eighty two still the spirit of the week. Lisburn. What's your tweet the week. After Hillary Clinton went on the record with the Hollywood reporter savaging Bernie Sanders in. Nobody likes him and she just feels bad that everyone got sucked in by his Baloney. My colleague at the New York Times Rostow at tweeted. Nothing learned nothing forgotten rich lowry. What tweet struck you? My tweet is from a guy named L. Griswald and he is tweeting about a report that Dmitry Medvedev and the entire Russian government whereas resigning and Alex commented. Wow the astros scandal is bigger than we thought. Ariella was leaving. What's your twitter? The week my tweet is from a reporter Ben Walsh and it's a rough three-tier power ranking level. One there are people familiar with your thinking level to you have a clue. You have close associates. This may also mean you've been indicted level three you have upon and upon a misquote world. My twitter we comes from Joe Protocol of the Bullpen Strategy Group in Washington. He says it might shock. You given the current political climate but this is the single dumbest thing congress is doing right. Now it's bipartisan effort. He's talking about an effort by Jim. Risch Republican senator from Idaho and Tammy Baldwin. The Democratic senator from Wisconsin to crack down on things called milk and butter that are not actually dairy products because apparently people are confused about whether soy milk is a milk product or not. This is what the government is working to protect you from. I've been talking with Liz burning of the New York Times rich lowry of National Review and Reo Edwards Lee of huffpost. We will be back to talk about whether the presidential candidates are being too nice listening to left right and center. You're hearing civilized yet. Provocative opinions from all sides now. We need to know what you think tweet us at L. RC. Kcrw stream all episodes of left right and center and our companion show all the president's lawyers at KCRW DOT com slash podcast or from the KCRW APP. Back again with left right and center. I'm your host Josh. Barrow on the right is rich. Lowry editor of National Review on left is Elizabeth Bruyn Commerce. The New York Times and Oil Edwards Levy pulling editor at Huffpost is also with us. So Liz we previewed your times. Call it a little bit earlier in the show that I had intended but as we noted your column relates to certain attacks that you think that Bernie Sanders ought to be making on Joe Biden about his record of coziness with certain business interests and about You know activities that his son seems to have gotten to do because of his association with Biden. I I WANNA talk about the the broader point in your column which is basically you know. Bernie shouldn't be pulling punches and you know when we compare this to some past presidential campaigns. You can look at you know what Obama had to say about Hillary in two thousand eight One of my favorite examples from two thousand twelve Mitt Romney sent a cake or at least said he was going to send Fifteenth Anniversary Cake to Newt Gingrich celebrating the fifteenth anniversary of his citation for ethics violations by the House Ethics Committee. It seems like this has been an unusually nice Democratic primary campaign and. I think you're arguing. That means we're not hearing all that. We need to hear about the differences among the candidates. Right in particular. I I mean so. I do think it has been an unusually nice Democratic primary I think you can measure that even by the money People are not spending a lot of money on negative ads. I think so far there have only really been to that you could argue or negative ads. you know that were paid and produced advertisements not just clips. People tweeted out of. And that's a pretty big change from. Oh eight where? Hillary and Obama really fought it out Quite viciously with ads on the radio and TV. But I think there's a big desire because trump is in office For Democrats to kind of take easy on one another and not commit to tax that are so brutal. They could compromise Whoever ends up going to the general against trump because there is still a lot of belief among Democrats and I don't agree with But there is believed among Democrats. Institutionally that Bernie's attacks on Clayton which were also very mild in sixteen are what did her in against trump in. The General Clinton certainly believes that herself so I think everybody is kind of walked on eggshells. And that's a little bit ridiculous because as you point out and I I agree and positive in my column there are really concerning issues You know with a lot of the front runners in the Democratic race with Biden. Those are issues of coziness with donors in the financial industry the credit card industry specifically And also issues around Sort of corruption or at least questionable at the goal dealings Regarding his son and if those are not breached in the primary and tested in the primary then they're going to be brought up the general because these are known issues we know trump knows about them so we can either see how voters are going to respond to that now or we can see how voters are going to respond to it later But I think now is the time and Bernie. You know he doesn't like going negative. He's a vision. Issues oriented guy doesn't like talking about personalities or individuals but he's going to have to because the very things that he's against our manifest in his opponents here well so reo. I I'm interested in your thoughts on on the last bit of what was said there. Which is that. It's it's not burnings personality to want to go negative here and so I'm wondering is as he pulled punches because of his personality or is he pull punches because it would be a strategic mistake to punch. I mean and my senses from polling that the Democratic Primary Electric has actually unusually satisfied with this field of candidates. They tend to like a lot of candidates across the field and so is is that maybe why we've seen a less negative campaign because there's there's little appetite for that. Among the voters they like a lot of these candidates they're trying to choose among good choices and if somebody starts talking about how bad somebody else's that will just re down badly on the person making the attack how we have seen That Democratic voters generally are very happy with the state of the electorate and they generally lake multiple candidates. You know you'll see that somebody who likes Biden and likes Warren and like Sanders. I think another factor here is that it's still a pretty crowded field so we're not yet at that stage where you have two candidates digging it out and when you have something with this many candidates. I think that there's sort of an idea that the effects of a negative ad might be a little unpredictable. You might end up with two people go head to head. They end up damaging each other and then a third person taking advantage of that so I think that when the dynamics of how that's going to impact the race become sort of complex with so many people still in the running that might add up to some of the hesitation as well. It's funny rich how this plays a little bit differently in Republican primaries and I you know especially as I watch on twitter and the Koumba sentiments of. Why can't all the candidates get along as as a former Republican? I find that kind of weird and like you know this is. This is a fight. They should fight but on the Republican side. You had this different dynamic in two thousand sixteen where people didn't WANNA fight trump. Not because they were afraid that fighting would look bad but because they were afraid that trump would just hit them back too hard. And then you've got all this stuff with like Chris Christie viciously taking out marco. Rubio a headed Hampshire primary Which does no good for Chris Christie But you you do see what. What Arial identifies there the multi-candidate feel dynamics where it can be? You know it would be good for to attack the front runner but no one wants to be. The person is going to do it. Right in multi-candidate field A war between two candidates often benefits someone else besides the two candidates. I'm with Liz in theory and the abstract I have no problem with politicians attacking one another in fact I enjoy it. I think negative ads usually add. Add despite the bad reputation. Add important things to the discourse but with Bernie in particular just personally. This just isn't who is especially on any extraneous issue that doesn't have to do with substance so it's not surprising he apologized for op. Ed was written by him or his team calling Biden corrupt and it had echos of that famous debate with Hillary said. I don't give a damn about her emails which might have been a good tactical position for Bernie to take. But I'm sure it was also really sincere. So if Bernie wins this thing is going to be by being Bernie and doing it in a really unorthodox way. So if I were him and his team I'd I'd be really hesitant to get off brand in any way. Well so I think the richest pointless Bernie's seems more comfortable taking a different line of attack against Joe Biden which is questioning his record on social security and saying that at various points in his career Biden has been open to cuts in social security. Biden has been pushing back very hard against that right and and Bernie. You know I think again just by disposition and having this wariness around negativity has also I think moved off of that. A little bit and ways he shouldn't have His campaign released a clip of in two thousand eighteen video of a brooking speech That Joe Biden gave in which he appeared to praise. Paul Ryan's efforts to cut social security and Medicaid Joe Biden's campaign called the clip doctored. It wasn't it was just truncated in that particular Statement it appears Biden might have been being a little bit sarcastic or something like that but in the very next breath in the very same speech he argues for quote adjustments to Social Security and seems to suggest means testing it according to his own economists. Jared Bernstein those cuts. Those are euphemisms for cuts And so birds campaign. You know shouldn't have backed down Bernie should have said in this speech you were talking about cutting social security as recent as two years ago and that's absolutely true. I think there's a big chance that those attacks will land With voters in Iowa especially older voters that Biden has been really successful with in? They should Because Biden does have this history the Wall Street Journal's Ed Board has praised him for it As recently as this week And that should be concerning so I I think the history is interesting. And this is one of these issues where Biden's been around Washington for more than forty years and so there's a lot of history and there were times when there was bipartisan energy for entitlement cuts in the Reagan administration. There was a big bipartisan package. That raise social security taxes and cut benefits by raising the retirement age and that had a lot of support across the political spectrum. You had an effort by Barack Obama to look for so called grand bargain on fiscal issues. Where Obama was willing to do entitlement cuts but I think the key difference between the nineteen eighties and two thousand ten is economic conditions. You have different. Interest Rate Environment Where interest rates were very low. There was there was political pressure for deficit reduction but there wasn't the true economic for deficit reduction. You had in the eighties or the nineties and that was why in the eighties or the nineties. It was possible to bring Republicans and Democrats together to cut entitlements and also to raise taxes and a lot of cases and so while Obama was in theory willing to do entitlement cuts in practice. The reason the deal didn't get made was because the price was too high. The things that That Obama was demanding in exchange for those entitlement cuts. Republicans weren't willing to give up and vice versa. So I think you know I think the lesson here about the difference between Biden and Bernie. Is that if we had a big shift in economic conditions where there was real economic pressure for deficit reduction. Biden would be a lot more willing to go to entitlement cuts in that case then president Bernie Sanders would be so. I think that's where you could have daylight between them. I don't think if the economy continues as it is the you're likely to see differences in policy that gets made around social security between the two of them because Sanders won't be able to get an expansion and social security through Congress and Biden won't face the sort of pressures that would lead him to be willing to cut it but I think you know it's it's an interesting theoretical case. If you're president for eight years things could change a lot book before we go. I want to talk about Kamala Harris. Kamala Harris is in the New York. Times this week Because the Times reports that she's thinking about endorsing Joe Biden but she hasn't decided yet. The time says quote Democrats close to Miss Harris. Say she wanted to carefully consider. The potential impact of endorsement was mindful. The two of her female colleagues. Senators Amy Klobuchar and Elizabeth Warren. We're still in the race and was uneasy about the prospect of backing a candidate only to see him or her lose in California unquote so first of all the calculating nature of this like trying to figure out what what what what endorsement will do. Best for me politically. And then the fact that that calculation ends up in the pages the New York Times people close to. You are talking to the paper about the fact that you're making this political calculation. It sort of seems to go to me everything that was wrong with Harrison the campaign the sort of lack of any core of ideology that ended up not only showing her to be willing to go wherever she wanted but it undermined her political appeal. People didn't know what she was and so I guess the question. Is You know if she was going to do this. It would be because she's trying to get on the ticket with Joe Biden. Would she even be a good running mate for Joe Biden? Would she add political value given all the political misstep? She took an campaign. I don't think so I think she's highly overrated as a political figure. I think what you say about this. This episode going to our weaknesses in the campaign is absolutely right including that showed up in the newspaper and we had these just jaw dropping leaks prior to her dropping out in the race about the internal divisions are campaign. It was really kind of the death rattle so I think she would be kind of a check. The box choice for for Biden in terms of of demographics. What do you make those? I think that's right. I think that Pulling Harris Onto Biden's ticket from Biden's point of view would be a positive insofar as it could be an inoculation around some of the negatives he has With women he already does pretty well With black voters So I don't think that that's what he would be looking for But there's no question That Harris campaign was was quite a inexpertly run on a variety of levels But on the other hand I do think that she's a good fit for Biden in that neither of them really appear to have principles They just kind of move around In terms of of whatever is going on at the moment of that's going to keep them Where they are comfortably situated Arielle. Do you ever since do vice presidential picks matter if you know if you are a US. Senator trying to position yourself to be picked for vice president or if you're someone who thinks are going to be the nominee trying to pick a running mate. How do you figure out what what move actually helps you win the general election? I think this is one of those questions. It's always a little tricky to answer because it ends up being something like it doesn't matter a huge amount it can matter at the margins and if we have something like two thousand sixteen election that's going to be decided at the margins you end up in this place where everything matters a little bit and I think potentially you know the homestate thing is probably not as big of a deals. People want to think it is what you can see. Ineffective and is the vice. Presidential candidate is vastly more popular more unpopular than the person at the top of the ticket. Then they can be either you know something of a bomb or they can drag down which you know something like Sarah Palin. Maybe in two thousand and eight This time around. I think you're GONNA see candidates looking for someone who can sort of balance out their weak points. I could see a case where that could matter at the edges but until we know obviously who the nominee is sort of what they're needing to balance out to face face against trump. It's a little hard to know whether that's going to be. You know the game changer of the election or just something that adds onto all the other factors that are going to go into this oriented words. Levy reporter pulling editor huffpost. Thank you for joining us. Thanks so much for having me We time once again for famed left right and center rants featuring pepitas across the political spectrum. Rich lowry soapbox neither Nancy. Pelosi or Mitch McConnell or shedding any tears over this. But it's kind of crazy with less than two weeks to go before an Iowa caucus that may do much to define our national politics over next year and perhaps beyond three plausible candidates have to sit all day in Washington drinking water or milk listening to an impeachment trial that everyone knows the outcome of Lisburn. What's on your mind this week? Popular podcast host Joe Rogan endorsed Bernie Sanders. Or at least said he's going to vote for him now. A lot of people on the left side of things. We're distressed by this. Because Bernie cut an ad with the endorsement. Thank Joe Rogan for it. Joe Rogan. Who's an intimate commentator in a lot of his views can probably be seen as pretty right wing? Bernie should lean into these endorsements and he should readily accept this report of people who are not typical Democrats. That's what it's GonNa take to win for my rant. Unlike Joe Rogan The New York Times was not able to settle on one candidate in the Democratic primary they endorsed two candidates endorsed Elizabeth Warren. And Amy Klobuchar. I don't think that newspaper editorial board endorsements served an important purpose. To begin with a disembodied editorial board is not who voters look to to tell them how they should vote at least in very high profile elections like presidential elections where voters have a lot of opinions of their own think. It's great when newspapers endorsed for who you should vote for on the municipal water board things like that or maybe you're not paying a lot of attention and they do the boring research to figure out. Who's well qualified but for president? I don't think people are really looking to paper. And they're especially not looking to the paper to say. Hey we are in a disembodied board of many people with diverse political opinions. Who couldn't agree? Yeah no I mean that's that's how groups of people with diverse points of view are. You can't settle on one endorsement. Maybe you should make zero. That's time for today. I WanNA thank rich lowry. Liz Brunner Oriole Edwards.

I appreciate it Ammon Monica to emissary for those that don't know an emissary always travels with the purpose of delivering a message or a gift. The cool thing is is to deny emissary the opportunity to present what he has to bring forth would in all cultures be considered extremely impolite. So I like I like that part but juicy though I feel like Dave Chapelle major life hell for a week with that whole justice for juicy thing now. I mean I'm definitely use that. Yeah I mean especially if you get incarcerated the justice for juicy t shirts with the biggest house in Texas Shit I guess juicy the White Wordy Southerner just doesn't have the same ring. I suppose. Gadget yes I'm not too far from me. I'm I'm close to Austin I'm there Kaleen and you're you grew up. There is this by like Cooper Creek Net Schultz Park around there Nettie Scholtz yet. Let me ask you man. You know down the street from where I lived. There was a fucking Kmart at K. Mart is Texas thing. It was big in my area especially when Martha Stewart endorsing them? It's not a Texas thing. It was everywhere man. It was so shitty you know how like Walmart feels dirty after you walk through a target. You know what I mean like K. Mart was worse than Walmart was always like the worst like they had. They had layaway in two thousand thirteen. Like who still promotes layaway? In the modern age man. I don't even know but yeah we had one K. Mart it was you know honestly the Walmart was on the same level as a kmart in Denton. At least because I was before like that was before Walmart or at least you know back in the day that was before Walmart you know became the monolithic is now had like a get held little caesars inside of it and I it was just. It was the worst. I hated. Go in the K. Mart. So you the best to you for you know. Kmart Radio Marti like to prepare for this interview. I listen to one of those tapes man from Nineteen ninety-two Jacob and if anyone is listening. It's the craziest. Shit ever. They are the mix tapes that played in the store. And this one that I checked out had everyone from Mike. Wilson Phillips Kenny G. and then it transitions into donny. Osmond George Michael. It's like the most ninety thing I've ever heard in my life. It's a bunch of amine it's like there's a bunch of Pop music on there. There's also like elevator versions of pop songs. It's it's really interesting to listen to. I listen to all right. Nearly sixty tapes I think and just scouring it for whatever I could use. It's funny what you wind now. It's funny what you find like what they decided to put on. It tastes like a stream of consciousness when were stringing together and it wasn't just a mix tape of like just whatever I imagine. There was probably a lot of politics involved. Just like everything money's involved you know big contracts and all that attention kmart shoppers the country by storm. But it wasn't until later that another young recording artists took his turn coughing the music recording artist whose name ohs some guy who worked at Kmart between nine and ninety nine first off you worked at Kmart for ten years you Jack. The Mix tapes you upload them on the Internet sixteen years later held onto them with the hopes that they would be used someday and it gets millions of downloads. How did you find out about you? Know what how did you even begin to create a project from hundreds of hours of archived audio? You said you listen to like what sixty types yes? I think the dude like could. I think it's fifty nine tapes but some of them were like four hours long because they were like reel to reel. I came across it man. I can't remember honestly because it was. It was one of those things I think like. Av Club wrote about it in probably vice wrote about it or something in everybody was posted on social media. So when I you know heard about it immediately. I was like this is perfect. How long. How long did you spend on going through all the all the tapes or the project going through like the sample is listening to it? I just like you know spent two three days. I just listen into than chopping out things and putting them in folders that kind of thing I mean I mean you could have easily spent six months. I guess if you limit it all to like a day's work. It seems less daunting. I'm really I spent a lot of time going through music and choosing in figuring out what I wanna use what I know. I have a little bit of foresight just from experienced in though like what is going to work. What's not going to work? What might be like feel like it's going to work but could probably end up into a trap in that kind of thing was the intention for Mark Davis to hear it at all that ever on your radar not really but it's awesome that You know we were able to get in touch and he enjoyed the record Honestly I'm never thinking about that you know when I'm sampling. I'm not like I hope this person years this. It's cool if they do but I want to hear it. You know. That's that's really what it is. Well I know this is all several years old. You may or may not have told the story on record but thank you for indulging me. It's just it's crazy degrees of separation from a teenager at K. Mart in the Eighties Jack and tapes so then twenty years later with the birth of the Internet and your interest in music. It Leads House. Used to hearing it and now you have a new tape for preorder almost like instruction you know. Yemen is pretty cool. And what does this guy came out of it? I got a note this came out of Naperville Illinois. You want to know how important of a city that is. The drummer from in the blowfish was from there. That's it that's down just a crazy series of events. And you know what's crazy is when. I'm reading the backstory while this I thought you were bullshit. I didn't think any of this. Kmart backstory real. You really have to investigate it. Hear it to believe it. Yeah it is kind of a winner. It's kind of a quirky story. You're not the only one some people I just laugh it off but it's like some people like you know. Is this story real are you? Did you make that up? I'm like Bro. You can google it now. Growing up your data center Ron Miles Rudy Royston. He likes jazz. He's listening to jazz. While you're growing up was that kind of a kind of influence. Push you in the music. Did you naturally gravitate towards the Qatar early age? Have that chain of events why Dad Plays Guitar and sings in. Definitely immersed my life in music or helps to in Denton There's a lot of really good musicians in a lot of really good music for being such a small town. I don't ever remember wanting to do anything else you know. And that kind of led to. Who's at Lowe's PATHOS poros which is mighty ducks in Spanish? That was five six years ago. Maybe like a friend and I like discovered proving Columbia and I just had to like you know find all of it and we started a band here just to basically cover that music you know. And that's what so what happened. The Joe crips Joe Chrissa. You know kind of just disappeared. You know he moved to Arkansas and yeah. Nobody really knows meant. I guess. Sometimes you got to do that as a as a man you gotta disappear. The assumption is is that at least. I'm not expecting to see him again but he was a friend and he really the group you know he was The one who introduced us to prove in Columbia because you know guitars equestrian choir depending on where you are in Texas. Maybe not so cool. But obviously it's paid off in dividends for you but was being an acquire a scenario where you had to like constantly defend yourself growing up. You mean getting picked on Shit. I went to high school in Texas man. I know I know how it is honestly. I don't know I guess I got some jet. I should 'cause it was never a problem with me because I mean look I. I was in marching band because I didn't play sports and I needed a PE credit. So basically I play trumpet in school because it was quote unquote the coolest instrument accepted by peers. So I was a tool. Perhaps I didn't have the courage to pursue something I really wanted at the same time you know. Everybody respects music. People that can do music of any kind. You know you can connect with any bully on that level at that age though if you if you tell people. That voice is an instrument. I don't know if that connects you know what I mean. I think that's something that you. It's like a realization. As you get older I think really no matter what age. What's more important is just actually connecting with what you're saying like. I don't think that there's any particular concept that a child is not going to be open to you. Know Okay. Well let's expand on that because it was a great experience because you actually taught at school music right so you. Kinda got to see firsthand. How kids Kinda respond to the things that you're putting out there. That was a that was a good experience It definitely like honestly taught me more about stuff that wasn't about music but you know just being able to like be there for somebody that wants to. That's interested in something you know it could be music or whatever really on this level. But I don't know I you know I feel like I learned just as much as my students from that experience. Is there anything that kind of jumps out? That's one of those. Like Cla. Shaping view hear teachers say but I guess you really can't learn from kids especially teaching for a group having to deal with like you know several different humans at the same time it. It teaches you about communication and like relationships. And because if you don't learn that immediately like you're GonNa get walked on is just human nature and around the time after high school is at around. The Vortex crew was at the time or that kind of flourished Texas is actually later in college. Although it was pretty much all like people do high school I was making beats and we'll come back in the summer and we would do like house parties and just like you know. I've played beats and people with Brad until after a few years it would get out of hand too many times we on a ride worldwide slipping and sliding through galaxy on magic carpets right and scientists defying gravity. Free spirits in my space in it through meditation chasing visions with precision so vivid. When they said for the Sake Lincoln. We'd take it must be the not make. A decision affects your full off. The tracks got hold Bernie inches running. The Evil Son has been some interest again. Come in this little bitty like morphine nominated until they think that his which are in fake titties. Take pity on these silly bitches. Digits with the richest but they vicious attention is fictitious. Like this now what Sane Brennan Wrestling Mundane Jolson? Take you the polskin. Feigen Sean by Neil much right holding. He defines all me taking Texas the center of the universe birthday emissary emissary while while. Houston was busy with Swisher House. Little Flip Dude. Uk and you guys had Guillotine the Casino Champs Solomon in Infinite Abdulah Fab deuce Ricci flow. man it was pretty cool. Yeah that was. That was a good time man like it was still a lot of everybody was still young. And you know had some time and and I'm glad we got to do that. A. New Renaissance Records. That's what you're talking about right. Yeah and I'm glad you brought it up that you guys are all young. I mean are you up on Ricci flow and like in current current times because he couldn't make music full-time Gig so he pays the bills being a magician. Well Yeah Ritchie's now me like a definitely one of the more amazing humans. I've ever met Ricci flow. Y'All check him out just you know. It's I get a little lump in my throat when I find that. The people talented people good people can't make music full-time man. I'm glad to see mark. Spitz is still making music. He has a new video with guilty Simpson and he reps Dallas hard so long. I didn't even know that that's tight. It's manages it warms my heart to see people that are just doing something for a long time and it's cool if you have a day job and you want a day job but if your heart set on music and you know men of a certain age they gotta go get a job so so so real quick are you from Kaleem. Yes I grew up there. So you've been around here for a while. Yeah born and raised here. So if there's anything Texas rap I know about it cool name on the I mean you know who else was big in the day where I lived fucking Josh Wink. Oh Yeah Yeah. I remember being in the Josh Wink. I mean he was huge with that argue their joint then a Texas had DNC but scripts went and destroyed the whole genre from a mainstream perspective. So it's kind of pulled back a bit now but I feel I feel like it was done before scrolling. Sure he you know. Yeah I mean I I. I saw Josh wink somewhere in like I can't remember. It was two thousand or something but it was. It was some good times. It was a different scene. That out there and you weren't always in Texas you lived in New York and one point right Yeah I moved to New York for. I was only there for like a year but I love New York. If I if I had an opportunity I would move back in. What brought you back because I know Texas can kind of be like a black hole? That sucks you back. Yeah for sure but Ran into a a bad roommate situation. A I'll be real with you. I I moved to the East Coast and had the exact same thing and came right back but I was in Maryland. I wasn't in New York outliving with craigslist roommates. The whole year and like you know one of them went bad so you still enjoy going to places like range as Pizza Green Elephant. Andy is on the Green Elephant. They it's crazy that still around. I haven't been in years yeah. Jj's every once in a while. I do a happy hour gig on Tuesdays at dance silver leaf on there every week. Andy's is a frequent spot. I haven't been green. Allison years. Man is crazy. It's still open or if I told you the music I like. I can't tell you why I like it but I can recognize it. Well I think a lot of people if you say. Hey you know. Why do you like this song? I think a lot of people can't tell you I but they can recognize it. And you're a you're a creator of your music. Every minute is a cohesive project and it was thought that went into their was calculated. Decisions into what vocals are instruments. Used here. Let me let me say something that could maybe help you better clarify you take someone like miles. Davis the majority would say kind of blue speaks of because it's a good entry point in the jazz but yours was in a silent way. It speaks to you. How do you determine that? I don't know that in a silent way was like the entry point but it was more of a maybe almost a distraction from what I thought was jazz because by the time I heard in a silent way. It's like a very different miles Davis record from what I was used to a and it reminded me actually of some electronic music especially with the drums. Just doing the same thing and let everybody just meditate on it and the five was just great as far as that record at least it was kind of a departure from jazz. In the way I felt like you know can you characterize I guess a your music and kind of the same way or are we or those types of albums important because your personal associations with make it special yet for shirt any record like that? I'm not gonNA say like there's certain records. I don't know that that's miles Davis best record but it's my favorite one. You know what I mean and it and it just has to do with my own experiences with it but at the same time like it holds up. It's good it's good work in what I mean. And that's really that's really all I can like hope to achieve I guess Because that being my favorite miles Davis record has nothing to do with necessarily what they put into it. Or what are whatever you know. It was just right time right place you know. I think the industry side is is very lazy. They want they want what will help their bottom line. But they're formula it's outdated doesn't really create anything just repackages. The same sounded pretty wrapping. Do you pay my into the business side of what you do or do you just create released. Let the universe ticket from there. Yeah pretty much just you know. Make what I WANNA make. You only live once. Oh the The Times that I have done something to you know. Make some money or whatever. It's cool but really what I WANNA do. My whole my whole like goal is just to leave something behind that represents me like a full body of work. Whatever you whatever that means a full body work you know. It's I guess it'll be a full body when I'm dead. Yeah I mean that's the mice that I have with this podcast if I die it's like oh I have our our type of these interviews that would be my full body work author. You have all these books. Be Your full bodywork so this is kind of your lame and sometimes it's just one one record so is whatever full body of work means. That's what I did. You can listen to it and you can expect like you can experience a Talk about something that made me think like those won't won't talk about. I guess like the the industry side those end of the year spotify things that flooded social media. I'm convinced that specified built that or came up with that just because they know that millions and millions of people will see it so it's basically a billboard for their brand and then they sell you on a notion that social media gives artists the power to reach their audience without a label. But it's it's all just Kinda. I Dunno industry stuff. Well it's the name of the game now I mean and it's unfortunate but it works. Everybody puts it up. They're just pushing people's buttons. You know I wanna you know and people want to put those up. 'cause it's an opportunity to like you know talk about. It's a campaign you know for their brand and spotify found a way to co OPS. That it's smart. It's smart is definitely and rare career in the music business that are defined by altruism like when how shoes reaches out to you that was all organic he flew out to Texas to meet you all from soundcloud track Jerry True Yeah. How shoes is a rare. Do Shadow traffic. I love stories like that. Like did you know that? After serving a brief jail bid in the late ninety s there was a producer. Name the forty five king and he needed to make some money after guys jail so he was shopping. His beat sue all these people. I don't think anybody was buying what he was selling so one day he was sitting on his on his bed. He was doing his bills and a trailer for the film. Sliding doors comes on. Tv would die those thank playing the background and he was so enamored by her vocals. He the song directly off the. Tv's brought it to his studio looped it added drums and somehow made its way to eminem and it became sand and you can be in your boxer shorts with Cheeto. Dust underserved watching judge. Judy and the next thing you know the Aha moment it can change. Your Life can happen so I love it when things like that kind of come into place. The best ideas come with cheeto. Dust some boxers. I didn't even know soundcloud was like re relevant. But you were smart enough to like you know. I got some Lucy's let me put it up there. Well no actually. That was the timber joint house shoes. Got It at a good time because that was definitely a joint that I put up. Just very briefly. The original release of timber was hidden on my website. The whole point of the of the project was to be like you know if a tree falls in the forest and nobody years. It doesn't make a sound so I wanted to make album. That was like that and hide it on my website so I basically made like is basically like a riddle you know you had to solve the riddle to get to the link to download it but ten percent of the people would solve the riddle so it would every once in a while. I'll put it up on soundcloud or somewhere to just kind of you know revive interest but it was. It was fun like I eventually. You know. Obviously we're putting it all out now but it was just you know here in their people would get to hear it from a business standpoint though man. Hey in order to hear my music you've got to solve the DAVINCI code to get to it. I don't know if that's advantageous. It does reveal who your true fans are. Yeah and it's not even about that. It's like you know I just I feel like it's too easy to get music. Now is not the point now is not the point I feel like looking for it in and getting it like finding the music like right now. People feel like it's so easy to discover whoever but they're dependent on these algorithms. And you know that's shaping their musical path in a certain way and I don't think people are thinking about that. Let's say I I wanNA take my hard earned money. I WANNA support you. I go to fat beats and your album but I'm the three hundred first customer. Oh well your vinyls. Limited to three hundred now. I can't get your music is what's the what's the balancing act on that. Well you know if somebody wants to get my music they can get. My Music is the twenty first century. Like there's nothing stopping anybody from getting anything so I'm not really. I don't feel like I just want to hear some more music like I just feel like it's like people like I can get music anywhere you know for free. I don't know the way that we release music feel like needs to be revolution. So I'm just trying to explore that I had how people created I know. Jd When R. J. diller of would pure something he would take his headphones off. He would close his eyes and start. Nodding himself beat boxing little drum patterns. Like I think sometimes headphones can get in the way when you're creating music to who honestly I don't. I don't really like using headphones When I'm making beats but you know I know people that do it and it's all just what you used to. I think most of the person so I guess the last thing I wanted to bring that was just the actual tape itself because timber the full vision of that project like you said it was like from two years ago and now here it is at present day. So it's it's kind of a full circle project But tell the people about yet. It's pretty cold. So yeah the release. The you know secret release on the website was like the aside and I I had always intended on doing a b side to it but you know when how shoes hit me up and said I need a B side for it. It was like yeah tight on do that. But obviously I had I had just finished. Kmart project at that point so I sent it to him so this is kind of the record that was made before and after K. Mart Shoppers. So it's kind of crazy when you're hearing it if you buy this record and you hear it's Kinda like two mindsets went into this kind of the the Jesse from two thousand sixteen in now. Fiche sure yeah. I like how it turned out like that too. We we even made the cover. And the back cover correlate with that suit. You'll see it when the record comes out but it's definitely like two different universes on each side some different problems. Shaw love that man. So ten years ago you were putting out music.

Let's get to it today. I WANNA talk about rest. Have you ever went to work and your boss gave a day off? You're like hey you're not just take the day off how we all looked a little crazy leg. Are you firearm here? In Saint Louis. We know about snow days rights. Like hey a wake up. It's snowing even suggesting in Saint Louis is like. Oh it's no I don't have to go to school. It's a day off. It's like a free deal just feels good to have a day off. Here's my question to you. How long has it been since you had a technical day off? I know that you work so many days but then you actually start doing your job. Now you go home and Cook and clean and clean the gutters and clean the car and run the kids around how me I'll work a whole lot. Raise your hand if you work a lot. How many I'll look at your neighbor and say you should take some of my chores for me. Go ahead we work. We work so much. Were always working and we really don't rest our soul. We're tired we're aggravated. That's why people are so mad at the traffic light. People are always talking at me by the way because I get caught up on deleting the spam in my email at a red light. I haven't seen a green light in twenty years until I hear the hawk. I'm that guy come on but we're just everybody so aggravated because their soul has not found rest. The Bible said this in Matthew Eleven twenty eight. It says come into me all you that are weary and heavy light coming to me and you will find rest for your soul. He says learn of me because he said my yoke is easy and my burden is light. Zippy feel yoked up. You're like man I work. I work I work. I'm working all the time work. Work work work work work. All Work and no play makes Jack del Boy. How long has it been since you went on a date? Let me ask you a question. How long have you been on this since you went on a date and you didn't bring your phone with you know it's getting quiet in this? Presbyterian church in fact every time we sit down. Does this not happen when you go out with friends? We all take your phone sitting on the table like a Western movie with the Clint Eastwood. It's like here's my gun at any point during this conversation that it gets boring. I'm getting on instagram. Hang on I'm getting right. Now get soup soup. We're always tied to this and I'm preaching to myself because I can't live without this phone I don't think too I can't live living with you. I can't I even have chargers bring with me. I have battery packs for the battery. Pack that come talk I WANNA see this show of hands all campuses that you and if you know it's not you but it's the person next to you want to judge them. Just look at them Dan because we're tied and I'm all for technology but the problem is we're so busy our soul doesn't find any rest got said come learn of me we gotta be confident to realize that. We need a day of rest now. God said this. It says the word of God. Let's go to. Genesis is the beginning. Genesis means the beginning chapter two. It says does the heavens and the earth and all the host of them were finished so there needs to be finish and on the seventh day got ended. His work got into this work on the seventh day. He ended his work. There must be an end to the work. Well my works never done when there has to be an end to the work. If you don't do that you will drive yourself crazy. I was just talking to one of the doctors at our church and he was telling me how thirty five year old recently was working eighty hours a week. It's almost impossible to do that to work. Eighty hours a week in fact we did that ourselves. Look we'll work all the time so we actually put a top clock at the church if you work at the shirts even if your salary do you have to have a time clock because the people thought. I'm working all Doug but because if you do get there at nine to five do that every day. It seems like you're working all the time again. It seems to quite Lord. I told you this mistake. I knew it. They like to hear quick work. Come Home League banner told you this would not work. But they weren't working as much as they do not that they weren't working but they thought they were working more so this guy literally was working eight hours a week and at thirty five. They found him dead of a heart attack. He literally worked himself to death. Now the some people here you never ever going to risk that because it's like you never worked a day no point at anybody but there are people that you never ever shut down. Got To get it done. Got To got to get it done because you find your worth in your work and you can't find your worth in your work you find your worth in your worship and the worship happens on the seventh day we come into the House of God and you say Lord here you know resting in you. Do you remember the story of the Bible where it says that? Manna fell out of Heaven. Everyday. Remember them up in other words. Chick-fil-a is closed on Sunday. A real bummer. That means on Saturday. You got to go get an Chick-fil-a to last Sunday. Don't forget that chick-fil-a stocks can I get a man because Conway told us closed on Sunday. You chick-fil-a closed off Sunday. So you look like I've never heard this on. You need to get into today's culture. Stop working so much and download the Konya album. Jesus is King. Okay so anyway. Every day. They're dropping out of the sky. The Bible says every day only take today's Amana. Because if you take enough for tomorrow then it'll turn maggots. Hate that when that happens. So but he said on the last day of the week preparing for the Sabbath Day because it's going to be the era he said take enough for tomorrow and it not turn into maggots it will be enough for you to have provisions in the day of rest in other words. God was saying I'm providing for you every day but there needs to be a day that you do not go to work under the law. He kept saying stuff. Like don't work. Don't have your lamps work. Don't have your cattle work. I've never seen Cadillac. I don't know what they do. Maybe it's like. Don't make them on Sunday. I don't know all I know is is that God is saying you have to have a physical rest and a soul rest or you will be arrested by fear and anxiety short temper. Wonder why you're like man. I can't stand this my husband. He's horrible kids. Come downstairs like what do you want a wanted serial? Anybody ever felt like you're just like your soul is tired. Come raise your hand all campuses sold. Look at your neighbor and say. Don't mess with me. I'm tired it's the way we extract information from people who are enemies of the United States. We actually interrogate them. And you sleep deprivation. It's also called. Single parenting can get amen. This kid we'll go to sleep. You're like losing your mind by the way guys unless we talked on. Mary Chummy L. Enjoyed that a lot of wrestling going on at our church this week. A lot of restaurants noticed bruises on people all kinds of stuff because a whole lot of wrestling going on but the guy is supposed to help with that baby. She carried it for non months. Now you need to carry side. Note is another day sermon. But Nicole says to me when she's has actually she's like I'm GonNa breastfeed so much healthier and I'm like I don't get up in the middle of the night. I really feel good about this in my spirit just saying guys go breastfeeding now. Finish the work that he had done and now he rested Verse Three Says Chapter Two Verse Three. It says then. God blessed the seventh day sanctified it and he rested from all his work. He blessed it sanctified it any rested from all his work. I want to say it again. He blessed it and he sanctified it any rest from his work in other words the sabbath is like time got said the five is my. It is holy sanctified. It don't touch it. In fact sometimes people think they can do more without God than they can with God in other words nine dollars goes better with God than ten dollars without God so every dollar of ten every dime out of a dollar goes to God. He said that is mine. It's a way that you prove to me that you don't love money that you love me and you trust me. He says on the seventh day you go to church and you worship God sees from Your Own Labors. It is not even a day where you go home and clean the gutters cleaned the car. Clean the laundry and do all that you have to trust. God come on. Somebody gives off price today and he will help you. You got to cease from you Labor. You have to now. I'm telling you I'm preaching to me today. I'm not an alcoholic. I'm a workaholic. I love work found in work. I like to work working at my wife. Flex to work my wife will out mark me. Every we look at people that only works so much and we get lazy. Why are you sleeping you you still broke come on? Let's make this because we were both workaholics. Before we got married then we got married. We went in business together. We had those businesses and then we started having houses the flipping houses then. We started rehabbing in flipping apartment complexes and we still own nature accomplice apartment complexes in Arizona and and we we were blessed in rich in favor and we worked all the time. We still have those things that other people run for us because God said I'm calling you to give this information and irrelevant humorous manner and build a church called faith church. You don't have to stop doing that but you have to do it in a different way. Come on somebody give God. That's why we're one of the biggest givers in our church. We give back fifty percent not ten fifty percent of our income every year. Because we're blessed. I'm a home schooler. That lived in a trailer but I trust to God and he blessed me and I also trust God with the Sabbath now for me. It's not on Sunday for you at Sunday. Okay what does it have to be a certain day? It doesn't have to be certain day but how many all work Monday through Friday. So you can't be that that you can't go hey calling them to work tomorrow and tell them hey. God told me to tell you that on Tuesday. Two days must habit. I ain't gonNA wear. Yeah he'll be like you ain't got a job. It's about to be a quick. You're out of work quick. Yo Bro but on Sunday. The Lord's Day. Everybody shot that Sunday. Talking to Ferguson. Florist Sunset Hills Earth city welded shattered again. Sunday is so you're saying for me and my house we will serve the Lord so you need to serve in church. You need to not just go to church easy to serve a church. Church is not just blessed me. Feed me help me deliver me. It's all about me a worship me. No no no no. We need to worship God trust him with the Sabbath and trust that Jesus finished the work right. He finished the work on the cross of calvary so no longer. Do we have to measure up? He measured up for us so that works done but the work of our physical rest in our soul has to rest. Sometimes I just have to rest. I'll tell my team I can't I can't think right now taking a break because I have say like last weekend Earth City and I'll be there again this weekend. I'll preach there Saturday night. Then they'll come get me in my house at eight thirty and since it heels in love to city then they'll tell me to sunset hills our city since our city since it hills our city since it heals our city. Sunset Hills. By the end of that I go. We gotTA FIGURE OUT STREAMING BEFORE. I die because this works. I can preach longer communicate better plus to them in Florida. Where seventy degrees in. God is waiting for me in my car. I'm just here to tell you right now. That is part of the rhythm. Guide called me this. I didn't come to Florida for the weather. It was just a perk. I'll tell my friends in Ohio. I don't know why God doesn't love you. I don't know why but I am telling you that you could come to the revival Boynton beach on March twenty six Komo. Somebody ought to help you get the border. Here's my point. I have to have rhythm because I worked on Sunday so to meet. Sabbath is Friday. I'm not supposed to work on Friday. I'm not supposed to create on Friday. I'm always creating even this right here. This right here. This is all created in a room about first week as a rhythm of revival trump then the rhythm of we could call it. The rhythm of wrestling remember that one. Some you looked at you personally. You Know Ula tooth went and then now we're talking about the rhythm of arrest next week we're already. I'm already in next week. In fact I this week wanted to show you because I thought it would help illustrate for you like I'll bring creative teams around me and in Saint Louis. We went to lunch and I said Hey. I wrote a song in my prayer. Tom And I WANNA include it into my servant. So I'm already creating. I'm already done with this week. Sermon Anna Gunn. With next week sermon. I've already put it in here. So my brain gets tired. In fact I WANNA take you in my car just for a minute and see a little bit of what next week would look how to create the twenties prayer. God gave me this song and it was like And I think I want to term about it But while we're on the rhythm so it'd be like I went like I want Guy Power John Real `climactic yeah we had maybe three or four guys on stage and we're GONNA like start up some chairs or something like that. They can get a chance I want. I Want War guy on the ballot. I want to look like that. Come on tell us I like that. Again I create in my brain now when I got this sermon. It was a Thursday. I had taken off because we did the twenty days of prayer and getting ready for the revival right so every I was getting at six. We're creating content. We're praying we're doing everything and I felt like I needed two days. Because here's what happens when you violate the Sabbath. How will it be in a public setting that you have violated the Sabbath more than once the guy so this by the way? It's the command. God says there's ten commands right before Dave Letterman. Got A top ten list. It was thou shalt not kill how the all even though we're under grace we're probably supposed to not kill. I would be careful. Saint Louis in that come down. There's a lot of murderers here. I didn't know it till now. Let's try that. How many how believe God still says thou shalt not commit adultery. Believe God says. You shouldn't take the Lord's name in vain and we all the Lord said there is the savage to keep it holy. How many all have broken some of those commandments. In which we talked about a really WANNA know which one it is. I'm just curious. You're actually very light late to break a lot of those. The reason why you murder is probably because you're not taking rest. Shall I go for adultery? The reason why you're doing that because you're so mad when she makes you a hot pocket you're like man. This is horrible. It's easier cold in the middle are hot lava hot. Can you do anything right? And then all of a sudden there's a spirit that comes on the woman and she goes you know what I believe the best place for you as Heaven? And now she takes hot pockets she starts ramming it down. Your throat cut helped me right now. I feel like it's a word analogy somebody. But why did you say that about our budget? Somebody's crying thank God. Send me a woman to make me a hot pocket in your griping about it. Somebody's pray God. Give me a man. It's my it's my banner. Here cannot believe as jubilee count. You need to do a quick work. I was thinking it was going to happen in January but it didn't. I thought it was going to happen in February but it didn't we coming up on March so now you you're you're I got hurry. I gotta go out and work every day of the week so I got more money and then I looked better so I can have more Bo talks and I need the suck it in move it up. Come on somebody. I need to go out clubbing. I needed and I need to go to church. You don't growth track. Might be a great place to meet a man and then you go and look on my gosh so that kind of looks good. He doesn't have a ring on his finger. This might be the law. Oh my gosh. She's got tesla that means. He has a house with electricity. Calm down calm out. We got to. You can't do this and the flesh God can do one day of favor that could do more than a thousand days of labor. He's saying learn of me. Take my yoke upon you. You're better than you think you are. You trust in the Lord I gotTa get it done. You worry about stupid stuff technical this last week. She's in the kitchen. She says just finished wakes previously. And I'm almost had a t t Jonah Keyvani went out of business. Probably don't know but it was a big deal in a cold. This was a day that was bad. This was like a meltdown for her. So anybody not so. She goes to Wellington Mall and buys everything she goes to Chesterfield. Mall and St Louis about everything so we had for the last two years when they went out of business. We have loads and loads of tea. Bonna tubes right these cylinders in everyday. She's having a good day. She realizes this week that she is running out and it's almost over in so she starts on. I don't know what I'm going to because the teas actually gone. I'm thinking you know what has been around for a long time. They've been drinking tea and Great Britain. We think called the tea party. Come with somebody. I don't understand how this could be such a big deal but in all of my wisdom because I've taken my Sabbath I said honey. I'm so sorry I didn't are. You kidding me. Have we all know? That's the wrong. You're not wrestling again in your life. So I looked at her and said honey. I'm sorry you're tedium that's bad but I guarantee you there's more T. out there we're gonNA find you some tea. I told a story last night at the Royal Palm Beach Story and guess what a lady came up and said she has two cylinders of tea. So God's already doing a quick work in her life that gets me two weeks more of being alive but we get stressed out a dirty and the thing you're going through right now is a big deal. I'm not trying to belittle it. I'm just saying if you go through rested if you go through refreshed. That's how great athletes win. If they give their body arrests they give their Sola arrests. And God's telling me to tell you this might be the most important message that you've got you gotTa Labor to enter into rest at Truscott. He's GonNa do what he said he can do. He'll do it exactly when he needs to. Somebody count okay. I'm going to rest quick because I need a job that you don't need a bad man and you don't need a bad job trust in the Lord with all your heart. Lean not to your understanding. Acknowledge him in all your ways and he will cause all things to work together for your good have no fear the Lord is here. He said you're blessed coming in. You're blessed going up. What shall separate you for the love of God. Hot Desk thanks presence. Thanks no now. What you to write this down on twitter. Instagram about instagram. And there's a difference between ready being fruitful and being busy fruitful. Is- you did the work and it was fruitful busiest. I've got to get this done. I gotta go now be fruitful to me preaching up here. I don't try to memorize everything I just start flowing. That's why sometimes it's good sometimes. It's not so good it depends. I don't try to over. Think it again in my lane allow the happy medium come forth and then I watch the stuff that stresses me so I try to be the cultural architect of my life. Listen to this Ferguson. Be The cultural architect of your life so you can say hey. God called me to do this. But God's not going to be putting something on me. That totally wears me out. Now you're jobs going to be difficult. Not Saying there's going to not be hard days but if you practice the sabbath the reason why you're in the mess right now as you you didn't go to grow track you're not in a small group and nobody's there to help you in your time of trouble. I was on a boat this about a week ago in key. Largo and went on a motorcycle ride to me motorcycles. Refreshing please if you don't ride motorcycles. Don't they're bad idea especially now with everybody? Texting and driving is a horrible idea. But for me I go out there praying in the Holy Ghost and say God please anybody so now I drive right and some ride my motorcycle and it refreshes myself. It's always done for you. It might be croquet. I don't know why that came out of me. I've never seen anybody play croquet but it might be tennis. I don't know what it is for you but you've got that thing that you do that you need to do as long as it's not illegal. Immoral Fatmi Iraq actor. But now. I'm doing that but I'm still thinking about problems driving down the highway. Oh hits my mind. Eighty miles an hour. What are you going to do about that? What are you going to do about this? Cast it down. Cast down those imaginations. It's my day off. I don't have to do that in the middle of the night. Anybody ever done this in the middle of the night having credible clarity of thought you like I need to have sleep. Do you start doing the math on the sleep that you've gotta if anybody if I want to sleep right now I'd have three hours major hand. Come on all caves anybody ever all my God. If we'll just leave right now and having an hour and a half got screwed I might as well get up. Then you fall asleep for thirty minutes and then you wake up and go. Oh God I wish I could sleep because now I can't sleep thank you. You know what that is too much. T- I didn't mean it could be just saying don't know but we need to Labor to enter the rest when you rest. Your mind and I was doing that. I decided okay. We're here and my friend. Jeremy Foster from hope city church. He's their got guys around me and I have a bright idea in my smart idea is by the way Surrey. This decided to try to explain what I'm saying right now. Sorry said I'm smart idea. The Way Surrey decided to try. I really couldn't say will let you know right. Now there's a rabbit so I decided you know what I got a great idea. We're hearing the ocean. Let's run a pontoon boat. Bad Idea Pontoon. Boats waste bad idea. Write that down now. Trying to rest. But I'll just show you. What happened. Bath lasted tomorrow. Give it up for that guy to land lance from Florida. Let's talk about what happened. I was expecting a tidal wave of breakthrough. Him Out Laugh. But I don't WanNA drown. They were just making fun of me because I was listening to Konya but I had been listening to Merle haggard a beyond say so his wife had just said his. I'd never been around wife. She was on the trip and she goes. His music is like him. It's just very interesting. All over the place and then all of a sudden now notice the first thing I thought of was not saving my phone. The first thing I knew was exactly what pets. Jeremy was we gotta get to the back of the boat. He was closer to the back of the boat. That's why it's important to have people in your small group. That helps you in the time. If he would have I wear he was. We were going up. Capsizing and going into shark-infested waters. I could've lost an arm I need. That aren't come on somebody it'd be up here about two quirky your life. I'm scrolling with. I lost my phone but I got a new one. Come on somebody but his wife. Got Mad. Jeremy. You didn't even try to save me. I'm about to die. He goes honey. I really did try to save you. I had to get to the back of the boat. She's starts yelling in her climb over because he knew everybody in the front of the boat needed to get the back of the boat. Even when it didn't make sense to them and his wife he knew he had to do what was good for the good of the order. That's why you need people around you in a small group when your boat is flipping over somebody. That knows you somebody that knows you. I'm preaching good right. Now are steady. Oughta say man. I know they're going crazy all the way in the back. I can see it in something hills knows you knows you sent me W I know you. I know you know you haven't been church in a while and I also know that you're being weird because you're not texting me back so now that I know you I'm GonNa know you. Oh no no. I'm not GonNa let you going to pack every time you stop calling me. I can tell you're back with that guy again every time you don't text me back. I can tell that you're avoiding me in the go down this path for two years and you keep going around the mountain because you keep taking guys. That are a basket case. Somebody help me. Prejean good so you have to realize that there are people that have a lot of baggage and baggage. And you have baggies but we need people in a small group that no us and that can know us. No you may not because people have to help you. The Bible said that iron sharpens iron. So does one. French sharpened another one. That's why this church is big but it's small. If you're in a small group you need people say. I haven't seen you at church in a while. I told the guy recently I said I saw so and so and I could tell that. His spiritual health declined. If you ever see people you have seen him a long time. You're like man. They don't look healthy like cancer. Something's wrong it's like. Their physical health had declined. I can see that in the spirit sometimes and I'll look at people at our church into men their spiritual health decline. You want to look energize. You Wanna be refreshed and the only way you do that as people that know you know you if you haven't went to track today's the day here in West Palm. It's right through that door right there at all campuses growth track. How you connect with got you know you need to connect with God more? Raise your hand if you need to connect with God more. We probably need to raise your hand. Because God's probably looking at right now if you WANNA keep that elbow P- it'd be a good time to raise your hand. Let's try it again. Wave your hand in the air. Just don't care thank God you wear on How can discover your purpose and make a difference? You keep working crazy. But you haven't discovered your purpose. Sure I made a lot of money. Nicole Nicole made one hundred thousand dollars every thirty days. I was when she would win. All the awards. We'd go to places and they'd go. What do you do I'd go? I'M GONNA go get her. I take her to work and then I go get it like I like you. Everybody else is trying to suck up to the you know the president of the company. I didn't even care because I knew Nicole knew her purpose and I knew what my purpose was. I was her man. Made our mix tape gonNA pause the sermon that talk about mixed tape. If you have not watched last week's sermon go back and watch it. Because it'll fix your marriage johnny. Gill will help you johnny. Gill wasn't very lyrical. But he wrote songs that were repetitive. But there were good. One of his great songs is my my my my mind. You should look good tonight. My my my my mind. You should look good. And then he got to a point where we got stuck and he went my Mama Mama Mama Mama Mama Mama Mama Mama show good. I'll show you got me thinking Mama Mama. In other words he was in his rhythm. It wasn't a Lotta lyrics. It was just like Mama Mama Mama you sure look tonight. I'm here to tell you that sometimes less is Beth. Sometimes less words you ever seen somebody launch just goes talks nonstop hard for me. Say Right now because I've been done all the talking here today to you guys have been kind of a twenty eight minute period in which I'm just talking but I've seen people that would be on a date and I would be kind of on a date with them in the sense that we're at chick fillet in their next to me. And it's like she's got little over. Sometimes you just need to be pretty coming through that camera at all camps. Sometimes you need to go but I need to tell them everything that I needed a man. I some people here in West Palm just for the record. That are got a word for you. You need to smile. You know what because if you don't you never gonNA hear mine my. Mind Mama Mama look good enough you're gonNA HEAR. Ya Bye bye bye bye bye. Bye Bye back. Bob Is American Pie. Shah. I think God saying that to us today shirt. He's saying shh.

Chuck's went all told US hidden asking God to provide just the right illustration for his upcoming message on respecting authority to his surprise. His prayer was answered very clearly and somewhat embarrassingly when a police officer pulled him over for speeding in that awkward encounter chuck was reminded to pay respect to those who enforce our laws no matter the consequences well on today's program. We'll resume our study on this important topic. Searching The scriptures for clear instruction on Respecting Authority. Chuck begins this program with prayer. What a statement. We have just heard in music. Her father this prayer of consecration. We all commit ourselves to the things that are eternal rebounded by a world that has long since lost its way. There is every temptation every test. Every trial design to bring us to ruin and to cause us to stumble is dark world in which we live but there is no reason for us to think we are existing only in darkness for you have brought light and life and love. You have a plan for us. We are to shine as lights. We are to be as salt in a rotting society. May we qualify for that Lord by your grace the US each one of us in a special way for Your glory? I pray that you will use this morning to stabilize and strengthen us as we realize the value of your AF- already over us and our submitting to the authority of those. You have given to us for that purpose. He's offerings are yours our father and we give them with great joy and gratitude in the name of the Lord. Jesus we pray everyone said Amen. You're listening to insight for living to search. The scriptures with chuck swindle be sure to download his searching scripture studies by going to insight world dot org slash studies and now the message called Respecting Authority there scriptural statements woven through the fabric of the Bible that that could take the rest of our time to turn to them. So allow me simply to state the reference. And give you the gist of it. In Exodus. Twenty verse twelve. We're told honor our father and our mother. Do you do that? Many of you have begun to sneer at that because after all those wrong things. Your parents did please. It says. Honor Your father and your mother if you don't you're disobeying Scriptures when you get to the New Testament Jesus words in Luke. Eighteen fourteen. Those who humble themselves will be exalted. Hebrews thirteen seventeen. We were told. Obey your spiritual leaders for their watch over your souls. I would say that there are some of you who resist that that that council. I'm to obey my pastor. The elders obey I may send really what the word me it really does. And if you do you are resisting AF- already that has been given by God. We didn't ask for the Authority we've been called to. It is our responsibility. I answer in many ways for the reputation of this church. That is my responsibility. I Peter Three one says wives submit to your husbands. You ladies knew I was going to get to that. Didn't you? How easy to forget it. If you had my husband you'd Jays that tune actually if you check the context this is even with a husband who doesn't deserve and before we husbands began to feel arrogant and proud verse. Seven says Murtaugh honor our wives honor. Them is a very significant word. Give honor to that lady. What a difference it would be in the whole if why truly listened to win paid more attention to her husband than to her pastor and if a man gave more honor to his wife than to his boss under her first feeder five versus five and six. We're a humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God that he may exalt us in due time casting your cares on him knowing that he cares for us. God is called into being his representatives. They are not necessarily your choice or mine that they are his representatives God places in uniform those who watch over our city God is involved in the responsibility of their lives. I know summer corrupt in many cities. I know that I know there are some leaders that we would not choose to respect. I just can't get around the statement in Romans. Twelve and Romans thirteen especially than I am not to rebel against my rebellion. Goes all the way back like yours to the story of CAIN versus God. Where is your brother? Abel? You're asking me you as an impudent manner and my my brother's keeper am I watching? He had just murdered him and he has the death penalty to Mao back to God saying in effect. Who are you to call into question who all the way back to that ancient day when that happened you see? This is nothing new and I delivered today. A strong word to all of us. Respecting Authority is long overdue. God must be. Tired of hearing are excuses. Well before I go to I Samuel Chapter Eighteen. I want to add a thought here that you may not have considered. Would you please teach your children and your grandchildren the importance of respecting authority? Would you still teach them the value of the words? Sir and Ma'am. Will you still encourage them to step aside and let a lady go I? Would you still hold fast to some basic courtesy rules? That keep us kind and considerate and living in harmony. Because if you don't have to deal with your rebel offspring and it's an ugly scene more often than not I find a classic example of one who did respect authority. Even though the Authority didn't deserve it in the man named David his story is told in many places of the Old Testament but I'm looking at first Samuel Eighteen through twenty four. We all know about David and Goliath. We could tell that story quickly. Young Shepherd boy coming under the battle site Goliath of gaffe the giant felicity defying the armies of Israel and the God of Israel and saw the king of the people is now intimidated and though he is himself tall. He is no match for Goliath in size or stature. He's hiding out in the tent. And the people who are under his command retreated and their knees are knocking in the low incomes. David and of all things. He asked the crucial question. Is there not a cause? Is there a reason to fight this giant he's defying the armies of the Living God? He's defying my God himself? David Sling Stone. Kills the giant. We all knew the story but most people don't know is what followed. David stepped into a living. Hell on earth the very man whose neck he saved King Saul turns on David. Now why would he do that? Look at Chapter Eighteen. Beginning at verse. One we'll move rather quickly through the early part because it's the latter part that reveals David's real character. After David Finish talking with Sali met Jonathan. The king's son there was an immediate bond between them for Jonathan Love. David Stop this adds to the Dilemma Saul Son. Jonathan becomes a close friend with David. They become bosom friends intimate friends. Jonathan loves him it says elsewhere as he loved his own soul and David the same but Jonathan is the son of the king read on from that day on Saul kept David with him and wouldn't let him return home. Jonathan made a solemn pack with David because he loved him as himself. Jonathan seal the pack by taking off his robe and giving it to David together with his tunic. His sword is Bo and has built wherever whatever saw. Ask David David. Did it successfully look at this young dating remember? He's only a teenager. Shaw made him a commander over the men of war. You who have served in the military you have never served under a teenage officer served in the Marine Corps and we had a number of officers some of whom were young. None of them were in their teenage years. David's a teenager yes no military training except killing bears and giants and watching over the sheep and soul realizes this is the man. I'll want to command my troops. So we appointed him he'd he pre promotes and please notice and appoint with that was welcomed by the people and souls officers alike. They'd love to serve under a man who has the guts to kill a giant. I WanNa follow that man with that kind of courage. When the victorious Israelite Army was returning home after David had killed the Philistine women from all the towns of Israel came out to meet King Saul. You know how they come back. And that March in that victory parade down the dusty road and the women were on both sides with tambourines and symbols and their instruments and singing and dancing with joy. We read in verse six. This was their song. Solis latest thousands. David is ten thousands. Look at that song is. It's like a like a folk song. It got to be known all across the land. In fact a little later we will take the time but the people of Felicity knew the Song I was in my study and I went over the song enough to give it a little tune. But you don't want to hear that to the poor knee is it's A. It's a song that that Exalts David and tells the truth about soul next verse. This made saw very angry. Why well look at? What is imagination does it goes to a realm of unreality. But this is what suspicion will do to you. What's this he said they credit? David with ten thousands and me with only thousands next. They'll be making him their king from the time on Saul kept the jealous. I on David. Stop right there. Look at me. Some of you serve people who are like that. That may describe your boss. The that that may describe some superior in your life to whom you're accountable sorry response and you know it and I know it how how how small minded of Saul. Why does it so sit back and say you're exactly right? That is a hero not me. It takes a big man to do that. Solves a little man in a big body. So US David with a jaundiced eye. The next thing they'll be making him their king so from that time on kept a jealous by on deed did he ever is putting it mildly the very next day get that a tormenting spirit which was allowed by God to overwhelm all that. He began to rave in his house like a mad man. David is playing the harp as he did. Each day. Saw had a spirit his hand and suddenly hurled at a look at that attempted murder. And all Dave is done is Joel giant. Be promoted to commander in the army. This begins twelve to thirteen year. Fugitive Life for David. He runs to keep from being killed because Saul is out to get him the fact that he escaped sword look at their response from Saul. Find this curious verse. Twelve Seoul was afraid of David. Little later on Verse Fifteen. When Saul recognized this he became even more afraid of him. Verse Twenty Nine. Sol became even more afraid of him. Oh man solves food. I can't even. I mean this thing is going to happen. I can't even stop it ended. The Chapter David's name became very famous. This is the dilemma. This is an issue that David has to live with. Now get it. He answers to the king who is an acting very kingly but he answers to a king who would murder him but he is. God's annoyed did this King and David realizing how dangerous it will be in his presence decides. He must run for his life. I've failed to tell you that. In the meantime Saul Son. Jonathan and David had become fast friends. Jonathan is really in the middle because he sees David and all of his strength. He knows it. David would never take the throne from Saul. But he's got a father who now begins to despise his own son. Jonathan because of a friendship with David. This is a difficult difficult thing we would say. That Saul is spooked. He's spooked by this. He's got a man on his hands that he's promoted. Who is seen in? The eyes of the people is everything they should have seen him. As as a hero Saul is so filled with jealousy. He can't find room in his life for promoting David and standing behind him and giving thanks for him and so David's life becomes a life of escape at this point saw makes it his. Life's ambition to find killed David David Moose. From About Age Eighteen. Nineteen all the way to age thirty running for his life because of this madman named Saul David. Jonathan share precious words together in friendship. David reaches an all time low when he gets to the town of nob Chapter Twenty one. We're fast forwarding. David winds up in the Cave of adult from chapter twenty two. Were six hundred men. All the malcontents around that are in debt troubled and needing a leader find their way to the same cave. David David and these men are living together and finally the news reaches Saul Saul begins to pursue in in the hills of Giddy. When you go to Israel be sure the guide takes you getty. It's one of my favorite places to go. It's the Hill Country of Judea. And you go up and along the goat trails very narrow trails some of them with a drop off. You can look to your right along the hill. You'll see caves. David hid in caves like that. He lived like a like an animal from one to another dodging. Saul's spear look at the end of verse. Fourteen chapter twenty three look at this saul hunted him day after day. But God didn't let solve finding take close calls time that saw me and walked by the mouth of a cave. David Shush keep keep it. Keep it quiet quiet. They hear the boots school by Saul never catches him all this time. Remember this. David doesn't deserve it. All he did was kill a giant command the troops kill more for listings. So has now such a focus. He cannot think of anything else. He's not really leading the people any longer. He's out to find David. He's got his minions three thousand of his troops working with you. Get the check twenty four. There's a humorous scene that maybe we need for a little break here since we're getting kind of kind of tight in what we're seeing. This is a point where Saul Becomes Pretty Vulnerable Chapter Twenty Four Verse One. After Saul returned from fighting the Philistines. He was told the David Gone into the Wilderness of Giddy so saul chose three thousand lead troops from all Israel. You wonder if he's afraid three thousand and one people going after one man. He chose him from all over Israel. They went to search for David and his men near the rocks the wild goats mother weighing in getting means a spring of a wild goats and so there are beautiful waterfalls up there. When you take the journey. You'll you'll see them. It's a great place to hang out if you will for an hour so I wouldn't want to live there. Twelve years verse three at the place where the road passes some cheapo solvent into a cave to relieve himself up so you can picture it maybe not for long but take a moment. I call that being vulnerable saw is looking out to the mouth of the cave on his haunches did happen. The David and his men or hiding farther back in that very same K. You know the first thought is. It's amazing how the Lord makes it possible for me to finish off my enemy. This is my moment fact. That's what the man wanted him to do. Look at Verse Four. Here's the Council of people around you when they see that you're being mistreated knows your opportunity. Today the Lord is telling you I'll certainly put your enemy into your power to do with as you wish kind of helps to toss the name of the Lord into it. Doesn't you know. Look David Wake Up. I mean there yes. That's him so David crept over a love scenes like there any sliced off a piece of the him of Saul Robe. Great moment so all done no it. David's got this little this little piece of his robe. I five. You're GONNA see the greatness of David right here but then David's conscience began bothering him because he had cut salts road. The Lord knows. I shouldn't have done that to my Lord. The king. He said he was meant. Lord forbid that I should do this to my Lord. The king an attack. The Lord's an order one for the Lord himself has chosen him. David restrained men and did not let them kill Saul.
