Was Terrorism at the Root of Recent Car Explosion?
"That's been filed is what New York's governor came out and said. So Kathy Hochul has come out most and recently said, and this is a quote from her, there is no evidence, no evidence at this time that this was terrorist activity. And that's what I want to make very clear to the public. OK. Nobody else been has very clear to the public in such a demonstrative way. The FBI, who is the lead investigator in this, they have not said about this activity. What is Kathy Hochul's rationale for coming out and saying there is no at evidence this time this was terrorist activity? And I want to make that very clear to the public. Well, she's saying that was it a local guy, or I guess if there are two local guys, but she said a local guy. What is this? Oh, that John. He's really done it this time. Gosh, you know, he he shot up those bombs and he ended up going straight at Border Patrol. Bob Not silly, but don't mind him. Just say he got carried away this time. It'll be the last last time, obviously. I mean, seriously, is that the place we're supposed to live in mentally and intellectually here? I mean, look, you got to let the investigators do what they do. But if you have a massive explosion to the point where you can't even identify the people that were in the car, and that's what we've heard so far because of of how massive the explosion was. You have a car that is driving erratically and is speeding towards Border Patrol. Well. That isn't a terrorist attack, even if it is a local guy. I don't know, maybe somebody familiar to Kathy Huckle. I mean, it just you can't make this stuff up. You can't make this stuff up. And by the way, we had to talk about things like this. In part, not just because New York once again did not make sense and Kathy Huckle is her governor, but also because Joe Biden is president of the United States and he makes the entire world less safe. And so you have crazy people to get ideas from all over the place and bad people are acting out more regularly, whether you're talking about terrorist organizations like Hamas, or I don't know, Bob and Johnny from somewhere in New York. If that's who this turns out to be. Because Kathy Huckle wants to make it very clear. Hey there. Happy Thanksgiving -ish,

Jared Asch Talks With Chris Whitmore of the Richmond Promise
"I am joined by Christopher Whitmore of Richmond Promise. And Chris, first, tell us a little bit about your background and how you came to Richmond Promise. And then tell us, what is the Richmond Promise? Absolutely. First off, thank you for inviting me on the podcast. Really great to be here and have this conversation. So I was raised here in the city of Richmond. I still live in Richmond, and growing up here in our community, like so many other young people, I wanted to enter into a career pathway and build an adult life in which I could support the Richmond community and try to make this city, this community, the kind of place that I always envisioned it to be, which is a place where everyone can thrive. Everyone can feel welcome here in Richmond, feel like they have opportunities from the city, from the community to be who they want to be, to contribute to this space and to make this city better for everyone. And so with that really broad, general goal in mind, I decided at a very young age, elementary school age, that I wanted to be a public official when I grew up. I wanted to work specifically in the mayor's office of the city of Richmond when I grew up. And my godmother, Erma Anderson, was mayor when I was in elementary school. She was the first African -American woman elected mayor of the city of Richmond. I grew up with folks like John Gioia, who's our county supervisor and has been our representative for several years on the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors and several other folks who really inspired me to want to build out a career in public service. And so with that in mind, I went off to college. I went out of state to Webster University in St. Louis, Missouri. I studied political science with an emphasis in public law. After graduating from Webster in 2014, I moved to Washington, D .C., where I was accepted into a congressional fellowship. And through that fellowship, I worked in the office of then U .S. Senator Bill Nelson's office of Florida. I moved back to Richmond in December 2014 and got my first job, first full time job working for Congressman Mark DeSaulnier, who at the time was the representative, newly elected representative for California's 11th congressional district. I had the privilege of working as an outreach coordinator in his Richmond office, which is actually just down the hall from where my current office is today. A year later, 2016, I got to accomplish that childhood goal of mine of working in the mayor's office. I worked for Mayor Tom Butt, starting off initially as his director of community engagement, later promoted to be his director of policy and strategy. After about two years in that office, I went over to the city and county of San Francisco, where I went to the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission and worked on their policy and government affairs team. And for about a year and a half, I wrote, along with my supervisor, all of the water, power and wastewater legislation for the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. And I'll speed up the story. So about a year and a half later, I came back here to the city of Richmond and served as Tom Butt's chief of staff for exactly two years. And two years ago, October 4th, 2021, I started as Richmond Promise's second executive director. And it's been a great journey over the last two years, and I was really inspired to make the transition from the mayor's office to Richmond Promise. Just thinking back on my experience growing up in Richmond, having a goal to go to college at a young age for the sake and purpose of really accomplishing my career goals. And just being reminded constantly that there are so many other young people in Richmond who have educational and career goals for themselves. And those young people also deserve to have really strong support systems in our community to help them go off and do the things that they want to do. And I came over to Richmond Promise to strengthen that support system for our entire community.

First Responder Wife Daniela Shares Her Family's Harrowing Hostage Nightmare
"We have Daniella T from Ontario, Canada with us today. Daniella is a first responder wife and mom to two girls, as well as a full -time staffing coordinator at her local hospital. Daniella's life changed forever when her husband was taken hostage during a shift when he was working as a correctional officer. Four of the longest hours ensued not knowing what the future would bring. Thankfully, through the hard work of the negotiating team, he was released with minimal physical injuries, but it would be the invisible injuries that would have the most profound effect and that would end up testing them as individuals and as a couple. While her husband recognized he would need immediate help facing the challenges that would come with PTSD, Daniella pushed the need to reach out for support for herself in dealing with the trauma and focused 100 % of her attention and care to him and their two children. As time progressed, Daniella recognized that she too finally needed to truly process the ordeal and the injuries she had been enduring as a result. So she started a blog called The Often Unseen and that was a major step in her healing journey. Welcome, Daniella. Thanks for coming on the show. Thanks. I'm fangirling a little bit here because I've been following you guys for over a year now. And when I saw you guys kind of put a call out to, you know, people who might want to be a guest, I was like, Oh my God, pick me. Thank you for having the courage to come and talk about your healing journey with us today. So based on your own comfort level, walk us through the incident. Yeah. So it was September 14th, 2018, and it was a Friday afternoon. I'll never forget that date, but it was just a regular day. And if you ever hear my husband tell the story, he always starts with, I wasn't even supposed to work that day. It was an overtime shift that he had picked up, but it was a regular day. I was out running errands and I had gotten a message from the superintendent of the jail. Our town is a very small town and everybody knows everybody. And I knew this gentleman through other community things that we had been involved in. And he sent me a Facebook message saying, Hey, it's Steve, call me when you get this. And I thought that's weird, but whatever. So I called him when I got home and he started it by saying, where are you? And I thought that was weird. And I said, Oh, I'm at home. And well, where's home? You guys moved, right? And we had been in the process of, we had sold our house and we were living with my in -laws while we went through the process of buying a new house. So I said, yeah, we're here at the address. I said, what's going on? And so now I'm kind of thinking, you know, like I should preface this because I'm guessing probably a lot of your listeners are American, but up here, the jail that my husband worked at, it was sort of like a minimum security. And so really the only weapons that they carry to protect themselves were pepper spray. So I'm thinking, Oh, he had to use this pepper spray. He got some in the eye or, or something along those lines. And then he just said, I'm sending someone over to the house. And then that was when I sort of started to panic. And then he said, there's been an incident and they have John. And I just, I had like an out of body experience. I fell to the floor. I couldn't breathe. And I could see myself like sitting on the floor, trying to process this bomb that had been dropped. And it was probably one o 'clock in the afternoon. So my kids were at school and daycare. And so I thought, I didn't know what to do. So I called my mother -in -law who I was living with. And I said, where are you? In my calmest voice that I tried to, you know, where are you? And she said, I'm downtown. And I said, I need you to come home now. And again, we live in a small town. It takes less than 10 minutes to pretty much get it anywhere. And she said, okay, is everything all right? I said, I need you to come home now. And so as she pulled up the chaplain from the jail, as well as the police officer were pulling up. And so she kind of was like, do you have the right house? And so they were like, yes. So she came in and I had to tell her, I couldn't even really talk. I sent a text to my mom and my dad and my sister who all lived here. And I said, I can't talk. This is what has happened. I know nothing. And so my dad was retired. He came over, my mom left work. She came over and we all just sat around the table for like, you know, it was probably a total of three hours, but again, a small town. I started to get text messages from people saying, I heard this is going on at the jail. I hope John's not working today. And so the first person, a good friend of mine who texted me that I said, oh, where did you hear that? And he said, well, people are talking about it in the staff room at work. And so it was at that point that I said to my mother -in -law, we have to call my two sister -in -laws who also live in town. I said, they're teachers. I said, we have to call them. They can't find out that this is going on, you know, at school through word of mouth. So my mother -in -law called them. They came over and we all sat around the table. And then I finally got a call from the superintendent saying that John had been released and that he was taking him to the hospital to get checked out. So we went there, we waited, we met the ambulance. I've never known a relief like that in my life. And we were there for a couple of hours as they ran some tests and x -rays, but you know, he was lucky that there was just some bruising and, you know, a black eye. He was pretty sore just from, you know, they had him handcuffed and things like that. So, but no broken bones, you know, no open wounds, anything like that. So that we were probably back home by, I'm going to say 8 30. So all in all, it was about a seven and a half hour ordeal. And then, and then, and then life kept going on. Yikes. That's a lot. Yeah. It's, you know, if you're, you know, if you're a corrections spouse or in that corrections world, you know, that's sort of your worst case scenario, your worst fear of, you know, a riot or something like that happening, you know?

What is SCUFAR, Christians United for Israel? Here's their mission statement. It's the largest pro -Israel organization in the United States with over 10 million members Christians United for Israel is the foremost Christian organization educating and empowering millions of Americans to speak and act with one voice in defense of Israel and the Jewish people. CUFI's diversity across political, ethnic, generational and denominational lines maximizes our impact media, in communities, on campus and in the in our nation's capital. CUFI is committed to confronting a difference in combating anti semitism in all its forms wherever it may be found. That's very different than Hamas's mission statement which I don't believe has been read by any news operation from beginning to end. Number one it's quite long but number two it is self threatening. And here this group founded by Dan Abrams is trashing one of the foremost leaders in the Christian world. Defending the state of Israel. Trying to tie him to Hitler. This is really shocking. But I guess it's really not. Benjamin Netanyahu himself has been the Jewish leader of the Jewish state. By the radical left in his country and our country. Kufai was created in February 2006 as a grassroots movement designed to unify Christians across all denominations and cultural boundaries in support of Israel. was media founded? Why God knows why.

"Is some good stuff, isn't it? You know him, you love him. He's a good friend to the show and a great friend to this country, the conservative movement. Country singer John Rich from Big and Rich and he had a great solo career himself. John, welcome back to the show. So good to have you. I love, love, love that song. It's called The Man. I heard it when we did our show for your album. Tell us about the song. You're launching it. You just had a big event with our buddy Cat Turd, by the way. You got so much Tell us about the song. Man, thanks for having me on, Dan, and for always having my back. As know, you I'm an independent guy, so I have no no big companies that I work with on my music. I'm just me and a guitar and the people, and that's it. This song is about my granddaddy who fought in World War II. But the broader message is it's about your grandfather, your father, all the people in your family. We all have those pictures that hang on the walls of our homes that we've seen our entire lives that are of our predecessors, the ones that went out and saved the world, saved our country and saved the rest of the world, too. And I just thought it was time to put the song out and remind people of what true American greatness really looks like, what it is really all about and what Americans are capable of doing. have And they the spirit and the drive to do it. And that's what the song is about, the man. I hope everybody that hears it remembers

A highlight from Q & A on Headaches, Sourdough Bread, Ozempic for Weight Loss, and Varicose Veins
"Did you know that as you age, your natural production of collagen declines? This results in fine lines and wrinkles, joint pain, dark circles under your eyes, and more. You see, collagen is like the glue that holds your body together, and luckily, there's an easy way to feed your body additional collagen. It's bone broth. Studies show consuming bone broth protein can boost metabolism, support gut health and digestion, reduce cellulite formation, can help grow healthy skin and nails, support joints and more. But if you've ever made bone broth, you know it's time -consuming, and who really has the time to simmer bones for 48 hours? That's why I like to use bone broth protein powder. Simply mix a scoop with hot water, add to a smoothie or even a baked dish, and reap all the benefits of collagen -rich protein in just 30 seconds a day. While most companies use the hides or the skin of the animal, which are less nutrient -dense than the bones, I always prefer using bones, and that's why I love Paleo Valley bone broth protein because they use 100 % grass -fed beef bones from cows that are never fed GMO grains or any grains for that matter. They even test for over 40 pesticides to ensure this is the purest bone broth protein on the market. These bones are slow -simmered to extract as much collagen protein as possible. They don't use any chemicals or solvents, just good old -fashioned bone broth that's then gently powdered. Now when we think about bone broth, again, we think about the protein collagen, and there's several key amino acids in there, including glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline, and those help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and help reduce cellulite. They're also critical for anti -aging as they help regenerate bones and help muscle and support heart health. Studies have shown eating bone broth soup on a regular basis can increase fullness, reduce your calorie intake, and lead to weight loss over time, and the amino acid glycine is really important for good sleep. In fact, a 3 -gram dose of glycine improves sleep by lowering body temperature and boosting serotonin levels, which is a key precursor to melatonin, and it does that without causing daytime drowsiness. Each serving of 100 % grass -fed beef bone broth protein contains 15 grams of collagen protein and 3 .4 grams of glycine, so you get that critical amount.

Wonderful. Easy. Yep, easy, simple. Yes. All right, and you're working with a number of complex cases all around the world, and so definitely reach out to Dr. Yvonne. If you're looking for a great health coach and she'd be happy to walk you through really the process that it takes and go through that with you guys. And so with that said, let's jump into some of these questions, Dr. Yvonne. Thank you so much, Dr. Jockers, for that wonderful introduction. So yes, let's start with a question posed by John on Instagram. He says, my wife seems to get headaches whenever she gets stressed or doesn't sleep her best. Are there any nutrients that she is missing or that may help her? This is a great question. So your wife, John, is getting headaches when she's having trouble sleeping or when she's stressed, and you're wondering about what nutrients are involved in headaches. Well, when it comes to headaches, there are certain nutrients that are top of mind. Number one would be magnesium. Magnesium is to the body what oil is to a car, meaning the more that we use our body, the more stressed we are, the more we're using up magnesium. We need a lot of magnesium on a regular basis. It helps calm our neurotransmitters, helps balance our excitatory and inhibitory neurotransmitters. It helps calm and stabilize our blood sugar, our adrenal hormones. It helps calm and relax those. I think of magnesium like an adaptogen. We hear about adaptogens when it comes to herbs like ashwagandha. An adaptogen acts kind of like a thermostat. So if it's 80 degrees outside and you want it 70 in your house, the air conditioning comes on to bring the cool air in, to bring it down to 70. If it's 40 degrees outside and you want it 70, the heat will come on. That's kind of what magnesium does. It's a great balancer. It's the ultimate balancer when it comes to nutrients. And so that is the number one nutrient that I see associated with headaches. Another one is dehydration in general and a loss of electrolytes. Magnesium would be one of those electrolytes, but just drinking enough water on a regular basis. A lot of times people have headaches because they haven't been consuming enough water, and particularly water and salt. So getting a little bit of salt could be some sort of good quality sea salt or like Celtic salt, pink Himalayan salt, something along those lines, a little bit of salt and some water. A lot of times people feel a lot better. A lot of times like for me, for example, I know when I was dealing with a lot of health issues in my early 20s, I craved pickle brine, pickle brine. So what is that? It's a lot of salt and water. And so I had adrenal hypo function. So my body really needed extra salt and I would get headaches. I would get dizzy at times. I'd have very low blood pressure. And when I would drink the pickle brine or just kind of a salted water, I felt so much better. My energy came back. I had less head, you know, the headache went away, felt significantly better. So that's another really common one. And then outside of that, I want to think about certain B vitamins. In fact, we know that headaches can be associated with higher levels of homocysteine, which is an inflammatory protein in the bloodstream. And so basically homocysteine is part of the glutathione production cycle or the methylation cycle. And so it's taken from an amino acid. Methionine gets metabolized and should result in the production of SAMe as well as glutathione. But we also produce glutathione or master antioxidant, but we also produce homocysteine in that process. Now, normally, again, it gets converted. But for some people, they're deficient in certain nutrients, magnesium being one of them, as well as in particular B12, vitamin B6 and folate all play a role in that conversion process of homocysteine into glutathione and SAMe. And so when we are deficient there and some of these B vitamins, homocysteine goes up.

"What do you mean that America couldn't defend? You mean America couldn't help them do this? We can't. We will not be even able to justify. Israel is going to need to do things. It's going to need to forcibly evict people. And we're going to say, oh, that's ethnic cleansing. That's genocide because we broaden the term genocide to mean virtually anything. Now, culturally appropriating someone by wearing a sombrero on Chinca de Mayo is genocide adjacent. The things that were done after. I'll let you complete this in our final segment. Coming up, folks, you're talking to John's mirror. Don't forget. Go to Eric Metaxas dot com. Sign up for the newsletter. We will send you this video and other videos. I hope you'll share them. Thank you. Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, welcome back. Talking to John Smirack. John, you have an article at Stream dot org. Really important article where you talk about what Israel is going to have to do and how America is not going to be able to help, that America, according to your advice in the article, America needs to step away. Israel needs to basically take off the chain. It should tell America, no more military aid. We don't need your money. We don't need your advice. We don't want you meddling. Don't come over here and start brokering cease fires when we're trying to catch terrorists. Don't tell us about humanitarian concerns. Just back away. We won't take your money. Your money's no good here. We're gonna do what we have to do to save our country and we can get back together in five years and be friends. But if Israel continues to rely on American money and allow American scruples and American prettiness, and frankly, American pro-Hamas sympathy in the Democratic Party, if Israel continues to allow America to have a veto power over what it does to preserve its own survival, Israel will be destroyed. The way Britain and France are on the track to be destroyed, having brought in all these Muslim refugees, pseudo-refugees, many of them there illegally, are now marching the streets of London, spitting on war veterans, and these countries are powerless. We can't do anything. We can't do anything. If the Israelis don't do something to stop these people, it means the West is dead. It means ultimately we're gonna let Islam conquer us.

"Talking to John's Mirack. John, keep going. This is important. We're talking about the film Police State. You wrote a review at Stream dot org. Yeah. Police State sums up everything I've been writing for the last seven years. It does so brilliantly and powerfully. Maybe the most powerful part of it is the interview with the aunt of one of the peaceful January six demonstrators who was falsely charged with terrorism and goaded to suicide by federal prosecutors with the charges they knew were fake. This is a guy who walked around the rotunda, looked at some historical statues and left. He was charged with terrorism and hanged himself. That is what they want for us. They want us either cowering in our homes, stupidly, timidly obeying them, or they want us dead like Jake Gardner. They want us dead the way they wanted Kyle Rittenhouse dead. Police State is an indispensable movie, an incredible act of patriotism by Dinesh D'Souza. You have to see it. You have to force your friends to see it. If you have any friends who say they're pro-life, say they're conservative, but I don't like Trump. His tweets aren't wistful. They impugn my Christian witness. Make them watch it. And if they won't watch it or if they watch it and are not moved by it, I would stop speaking. I would just say, OK, we're done. I know you're my brother. I know we've been married 20 years, but if you want tyranny in America, I'm sorry. We're done here. I'll see you in the next life. I hope in the right sheep on the right side, not the left side. One of the things, again, about what we're going through is we are seeing more and more and more evidence of the evil. And so people are waking up. This film is going to wake people up. I hope that whoever is listening to this program right now will drag a friend or will pay for the ticket for a friend to watch it online. When you see it, I don't know how you can fail to be moved and fail to say, I miss something. I miss something. If you've been looking for a way to force feed a red pill down the throat of a friend or family member, this film is is the way to do it. No, no good sane person could come away from this film. I moved. I hope that's true, John, because I think that there are people that they somehow you know, it's like when words go in one ear and out the other, they just it just doesn't. I'm saying this is the litmus test. Any American who could watch police state and be unmoved, you should get them out of your house and bring in the biohazard cleaners and make sure that none of that person's DNA is left in your apartment.

"I'm only slightly exaggerating the obscene, insane terms of her gag order. Again, if the Soviets, if the Polish government, the communist Polish government 1978 had imposed conditions like this on Lech Wałęsa, the US would have been imposing economic sanctions and boycotting Olympic games over it. But our FBI and DOJ will do this to the opposition political candidate in the United States. That's how we have to start thinking about it. There is a regime, I call it the Bidenist occupational government or BOG. There is a regime and we are the dissidents. We are the democracy forces. Unfortunately, I know that what you're saying is true. By the way, our connection is a little bit weak. So folks, if it sounds like John's breaking up, we'll try to fix that in the next segment. But I want to say, John, people, well, at least I, speaking for myself, always wonder, what can we do about it? Like we need to know what's happening. But then the question is, is there anything we can do about it? I'm not a fatalist. I want to know what I can do about it. I know we can pray. And folks, if you're not praying for America right now, you should do that. You should do that. Prayer is real. If you don't believe in prayer, you're wrong. It's real. And I'm here to say that that's something that we can and must do. But when I hear this litany of horrors, I do always want to know what is the way through this. I know that God can act miraculously in history, but it's never quite that simple. We're not the Israelites against the Red Sea, literally waiting for it to part. It's more metaphorical. The details of how we get through this are a little bit more complicated than that. And so I would love to touch on what you wrote about Sidney Powell or rather about the news of Sidney Powell. So I want to talk about all this stuff. But the larger question is, what can we do? What can we do? Is there anything we can do? Well, one thing we can possible that Donald Trump can get elected, that we can get a speaker of the House worthy of that position and actually deal with some of this stuff. All right. So one thing we can do is see if our local congressman is, if it's a Republican, are they voting for conservatives for speaker or are they cutting deals behind the scenes with lobbyists to get an interim speaker who really works with the Democrats? Steve Bannon reported on his amazing show War Room, which everybody should watch every day. He has spies all over Washington hanging around in the fancy restaurants like the Capitol Grill, you know, just friends of his show. And Bannon said, congressmen, Republican congressmen whose votes were up for grabs were being taken out by the most lavish, wealthy arms contractors, other lobbyists who are urging them not to vote for Jim Jordan because they want more money for Ukraine. They want more money for more wars. They don't want money to control the border. The whole Jeb Bush, Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney, John McCain, fake controlled opposition sock puppet unit party is trying to hijack the one branch of government, the House, that the people still have our fingers clinging to our last lifeline before we simply sink beneath the waves and are eaten by sharks. And so find out if your congressperson voted for Jim Jordan. If they didn't, let them know you will be voting for someone else in the Republican primary. And even if they win the primary, you will sit it out or vote for the Democrat because you'd rather have an honest Democrat than a Democrat in drag pretending to be a Republican with bad lipstick and shoes that don't fit the whole Caitlyn Jenner thing. I'd rather have a straight up real woman than Kate Bruce Jenner in drag. I'd rather have a straight up Democrat than a Reiner. Well, that's what you say in the article and in a number of the articles that you've written at stream.org. And I have to say, John, it is the you know, the hope of having Jim Jordan as a speaker would it would be so wonderful if he were the speaker, it would be so wonderful. So it's fascinating that we're having to go through this. What is wrong with our system? You don't see the Democrats agonizing and fighting to get a pro-abortion liberal Democrat as their head in the Senate. They seem able to let their political party stick to its principles. They seem able to get their zealots and activists to believe their party. They're not behind the scenes controlled by corporate money that keeps pushing them away from the perceived interests and views of Democratic voters. Only the Republican Party, only the Republican Party is being pulled by strings like a little marionette. And so however you vote and whatever the candidates say, whatever they campaign on, I mean, there's this woman in Fort Worth, Granger, this Republican congresswoman who won't vote for Jordan. When she was campaigning, she had pictures of Donald Trump all over the place. You would think she was stalking him. Now she won't, she, she, she voted to impeach Trump and now she won't vote for Jordan. Will, will the Republicans in her district- You voted to impeach Trump? Yes. Will the Republicans in their, in districts like this hold these people accountable? If you don't vote out the rhino who represents you, you are as guilty as Jack Smith. I'm sorry to agree, John.

Hi, Eric. It's good to see you, though it was better to see you in person a few days ago. Well, I know, I can't believe that you're a real person and that we got to talk. People have something to look forward to. You and I did a Socrates in the studio.

We're partnering, this program is partnering with the Fellowship, International Fellowship of Christians and Jews. And you have to go to MetaxasTalk.com, and we exhort you to go to MetaxasTalk.com to help. We really need your help. They need your help.

You'll see the banner, MetaxasTalk.com. Israel at War is the banner. John Zmirak, we can talk about Israel, we can talk about other things. You've written a number of articles at Stream.org. Yeah. The first piece I did in the wake of this horrendous attack on Israel was the left favorite rioters, Black Lives Matter, Back Hamas's Slaughter, Are We Next? And that was a response to some posts by chapters of Black Lives Matter endorsing Hamas in the wake of the attack in Israel. And looking at it, I thought, well, what these groups did in America with the George Floyd riots was one or two steps short of what Hamas did, but it's in the same ballpark. Violent attacks on cities, terrorizing people, almost two dozen Americans were killed in the George Floyd riots. Anyone who tried to defend themselves like Kyle Rittenhouse or Jake Gardner, God rest us all, was demonized as guilty of genocide or genocidal hateful racial extremist. And I thought Black Lives Matter founded by Patrisse Cullors, who calls herself a trained Marxist, who in 2015 called for the destruction of the state of Israel, said that it's a colonial enterprise in the same spirit as the slaveholders who founded America. I realized these are the same people with the same kind of ideas. One is more Marxist, one is more Islamist, but that's an issue they're going to sort out between themselves as they sit on the corpse of the United States of America. That's how they see it. They'll figure out their differences then. It is so wicked. We have to say, just because it happened last night, I mean, this is just so classic. This is so classic. And I think people are waking up to the lies, right? But a hospital in Gaza is bombed. The missile hits a hospital. A Christian hospital, by the way. I didn't know that. So something like 500 people die. Hamas, you know, being in league with their father, the devil, immediately used this to just, you know, more victim status. Oh, look what Israel did. Look what Israel did. And of course, Israel did not do it. It was a failed Hamas rocket that killed their own people. And to be perfectly honest, to be clear, they don't care about the civilians in the hospital who were killed. What they care is whether they can use this for their evil, propagandistic efforts to wipe out Israel. So whether they're lying, whether they're telling the truth, they really don't care. Truth is utterly immaterial to them. Their goal is to kill every Jew in existence, which, you know, kind of tells you where they're coming from. But I'll go further. Yeah, they actually want to maximize civilian casualties. Because first of all, they said, we you love life, we love death. Every one of us who dies in this jihad is a martyr. And every one of you is going to hell. So we're happy. And these are like direct quotes from Hamas. We're happy to see our children die because they go to heaven while we send you to hell. They are counting on Western guilt. So they want to increase, if possible, the number of civilian casualties among the Muslims. They realize the more Muslim civilians die, that's more effective than killing Israeli soldiers and Israeli civilians. In fact, I think the reason for the brutality and Nazi style cruelty of this attack was precisely to provoke Israel into a radical overreaction that would sour the West entirely on Israel and leave Israel alone and friendless. They're counting on America, and Israel and American supporters in Israel, to become more like the Christians in Germany and France, who are caught up in a kind of cultural suicide and self-hatred. They don't believe in Jesus, they don't believe in Christianity, but they have a leftover strange sense that they should nail themselves to the cross. They don't believe in sin, they don't believe in redemption, but they do believe in crucifying themselves, and the Muslims are happy to provide the hammer and the nails. Well look, what we're talking about is true. And it is interesting when you begin to understand how this has infected the Left in America to the point where, now you and I saw this at Yale in the early 80s. We saw this then. It has increased and increased and increased. Yale is as bad as it gets, except for Harvard. I think Harvard actually is worse. You have people in these elite institutions, imagine, they're paying a zillion dollars a year, their parents are, to send their bratty kids to these places where they're being indoctrinated into, how can I put it politely, Jew hatred. And communism, and transgender lunacy, and they're doing it all while living in palaces out of Brideshead Revisited or P.G. Wodehouse novels. Let's remember, you and I don't know anybody probably as rich enough to live as well as we did as students at Yale. I will never again live as well as I did as an undergraduate with 12-foot oak ceilings, a functional fireplace, stained glass windows. These people are living in Buckingham Palace while reading the Communist Manifesto and Hamas literature. That just puts a little tweak on it. Well, okay, folks, we've got John for the hour. I want to remind you, Israel needs your help. We need you to go to metaxas.com. This is urgent, metaxas.com. You'll see a banner there where you can give. It is urgent. Israel at war is the banner, metaxas.com. If you prefer to call, some of you, perhaps you have a phone, you can dial 800-235-7775. The need is urgent, 800-235-7775.

"Welcome to the Eric Metaxas Show. They say it's a thin line between love and hate, but we're working every day to thicken that line, or at least make it a double or triple line. But now, here's your line-jumping host, Eric Metaxas. Hey there, folks. Welcome to Wednesday, October 11th. We have John Zmierak right here. John, you're right here. Hey, Eric. We're in the same state, but I'm in San Antonio. I'm flying, theoretically, to Dallas later today. Tomorrow, in Fort Worth, we have a Socrates in the City event. You're going to be there. Right. I recommend you walk instead, though. Texas is so walk pedestrian friendly. You could probably walk from downtown Dallas to Fort Worth in, I don't know what, like about nine hours or something, right? It'd be more like nine days, but I keep forgetting that Dallas is the size of all of New England, like Camden in one state. Well, before we talk, John, about all the stuff that you and I are going to talk about, I just have to tell my audience, this is actually very important. Salem Radio, okay? We're on the Salem Radio Network nationally. They made an executive decision. As most of you know who listen to the program, we've been doing a fundraiser with the Alliance Defending Freedom, who are stinking heroes. But they made a decision yesterday, along with the Alliance Defending Freedom, that because of what is happening in Israel, starting today, when you go to MetaxasTalk.com, the banner you see will be for the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews to rush emergency relief to Israel now. So I apologize for switching horses midstream. We've been talking like crazy about the Alliance Defending Freedom. I believe you can still give to the Alliance Defending Freedom through this radio program if you want to. But the folks at the Alliance Defending Freedom asked me to tell you that they would prefer, given the circumstances in Israel right now, that you give to the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews. And so, again, the website is MetaxasTalk.com. This is a real emergency. I hardly need to sell you on the details. This is a huge emergency. So I'm so grateful to our friends at the Alliance Defending Freedom for working with us on this, because it's a very strange thing when you're in the middle of a campaign for these heroes in America to have this thing happen in the Middle East. But it seems like the right thing to do. And once again, we're relying on you to help to go to MetaxasTalk.com. It's desperate, so I will simply say that up front. John Zmirak, you always have a lot to talk about. What in the world should we talk about first? Well, I have a new piece up at Stream.org that I hope everybody looks at. The title is The Left's Favorite Rioters, Black Lives Matter, Back Moss's Slaughter. Are we next? OK. These are always long titles. Essay-like.

"Hey, folks, welcome back. Talking to John Smearak, remember him, Z M I R A K. Everywhere I go, I meet people and they they they start talking to me, but they're grateful for my books and for the radio program. And pretty quickly, they veer off into how great John Smearak is. And I'm sick of it. I tell you, it's my show. I don't want to hear about Smearak. I'm done. John Smearak, we're talking about a lot of crazy stuff here. I mean, it's serious, but it's also crazy. You were just we're talking about the idea that I want to put out there for people to think about logically, if it's possible to think about what it means when someone says I am a woman trapped in a man's body. It doesn't really make any logical like it's it's an idea that has been thrown out and people go, oh, OK, and you think, how is that different from saying I am three women trapped in a man's body? I am two women and a Jaguar trapped in a man's body. I'm four butterflies and three women trapped in a man's body. I don't understand where this idea comes from, but we've kind of accepted it like, well, yes, this is a thing and we know. But science has nothing to tell us about this. Well, Eric, again, you're giving people ideas and I think it's very dangerous. But, you know, it's really there are two things going on. On the one hand, there is the tragic reality of people growing up broken and wounded, people being subject to sexual abuse, being exposed to pornography, having to witness their their their moms, having all different boyfriends, being shuffled from foster home into foster home. There are all sorts of things that happen to make people deeply unhappy. And we want to take that seriously. And we want to be kind and compassionate towards those people who are tormented. And when you're profoundly tormented, you reach around for explanations, you grab around for explanations. And what could be a more fundamental explanation than. My body and my soul are mismatched. That's a very basic thing. And if you are profoundly unhappy because of the results of other people's sins and the fact that you were mistreated as a child and maybe you have some biological issues as well, but the fallenness of creation and the sins of your fathers and your mothers have really afflicted you. So you're like one of the you're like the possessed person that Jesus encountered by the gathering slope. You know, you almost have devils. Maybe you do have devils. And so you look for an explanation that is powerful enough to explain to explain why you feel this terrible. And maybe in school, your counselors are misdiagnosing the fact that you have mild autism or ADHD or something, and they're shoving you into into this transgendered ideology, which is a in itself. So on the one hand, we do as Christians have to take really seriously and compassionately the fact that a lot of people are really messed up right now, especially in the youngest generation. And that this is that's this is the world we created. Love American style. The Playboy Playboy revolution, the sexual revolution has produced not just millions of aborted babies, but tens of millions of thwarted, messed up, confused, angry people because they as children were paying the price for adults who wanted to live like 16 year olds well into their 50s. So that, on the one hand, is something we as Christians have to take very seriously. But the false answer, the snake oil, the demonic insanity of the transgender movement, it's like the people who are running around in the 50s with trucks doing lobotomies. They claim that was a cure all. All you have to do is snip this part of your brain and you will you will be OK. You will be compliant with hospital staff. You will not cause problems. Well, now they're telling young girls you cut off your breasts, boys cut off your testicles. We can we scientists can solve this existential crisis that you're facing. So, John, I want to I want to just help my audience here, because what you're saying, this is so important. In the past, folks and John and I are old enough to remember this. Some of you will, some of you won't. But the fact is that science, just as John said, science in the 50s and 60s said we have a cure for all kinds of problems. It's called a lobotomy. And many, many people were subjected to this surgery where they were effectively turned into vegetables. The Kennedys did it to one of their daughters. I can't remember which one, but this is what science did. It was very real. The inventor of it, the inventor of the lobotomy was awarded the Nobel Prize for medicine.

"You could say the grimest things and make me laugh, John. That's a talent that God has given you because of natural selection, by the way. I just want to say that's right. It's only natural selection that created John's Mirack. Ladies and gentlemen, it had nothing to do with God's plan. John, a good God would not create someone with a name that has a Z and an M without a vowel in between them. I was going to say, what kind of a demiurge are we talking about here? OK, so but I mean, it is interesting because. The idea to go back to this idea that what we accept, right, like you keep hearing people say, oh, I'm a I have a woman trapped in a man's body. Right. And I think on what level could that conceivably make sense? In other words, in what universe do you live where it would be possible for a man to be trapped in a woman's body or a man to be a woman to be trapped in a man's body? In other words, on the surface of it, it's a preposterous notion. And yet somehow we're being told, no, no, no, just just go along with it. And I just thought it I can't even imagine, you know, in other words, even if you don't believe in God, even if you just say, well, I just believe in science, on what scientific level would it be possible to identify as one sex trapped in the body of another sex? How could natural selection give us that? How could anything? All right. This is complicated. But OK, let's say you're actually just a Darwinian. OK, let's say you really take Darwinism seriously. If you did, you would say, well, all these transgender people are just misfits. They are they are bad mutations. And we should not spend time and money about thousands and thousands of dollars helping these people sterilize themselves in ever more elaborate ways. We should just sort of cushion society from them, segregate them, make sure that they don't mess up children and make the next generation less likely to reproduce. In other words, you would act like the Nazis and the Darwin, the Nazis were being consistent Darwinists. They were the only really consistent Darwinists. And when they put Darwinism into action and when Planned Parenthood and other groups in America put eugenics and Darwinism into action, the results were so ugly that the world recoiled and said, well, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, we we we we don't want to believe that that's what Darwinism actually teaches. But in fact, it does. And if you read Richard Weikart's terrific book, The Religion of Adolf Hitler, he shows how Hitler was to Darwin. What Lenin was to Marx, what St. Paul was to Jesus, the person who takes the abstract principles and puts them into effect in the only way they really can be put into effect. So there is no abstract Marxism that generates good outcomes. But Lenin corrupted it. There's no abstract Darwinism that generates human humane outcomes. But Hitler corrupted it. These ideas have consequences. I think your great learning has made you mad. We'll be right back with John Smirack. Tell me why Relief Factor is so successful at lowering or eliminating pain. I'm often asked that question. Just the other night I was asked that question. Well, the owners of Relief Factor tell me they believe our bodies were designed to heal. That's right. Designed to heal. And I agree with them. And the doctors who formulated Relief Factor for them selected the four best ingredients. Yes, 100 percent drug free ingredients. And each one of them helps your body deal with inflammation. Each of the four ingredients deals with inflammation from a different metabolic pathway. That's the point. So approaching from four different angles may be why so many people find such wonderful relief. If you've got back pain, shoulder, neck, hip, knee or foot pain from exercise or just getting older. You should order the three week quick start discounted to only nineteen ninety five to see if it'll work for you.

But if you wait right here, in just about two minutes, the bus to point C will be coming right by. And now, here's your Ralph Kramden of the airwaves, Eric Mataxas. Hey, folks, welcome to the program, I like to call it. John Zmierak, you are such a special guest on this program that we were willing to just do a phone connection. Normally, we have to have our guests on video, but you're such a big shot now that you can demand only phone if you if you choose. So welcome to the show. Thank you, Eric. I'm sheltering in place in an undisclosed location. Well, the weird thing is we're both in Dallas. And I was at an event last night. Now, of course, I want to talk to you about the news of the day. But I was at an event last night where a guy claiming to be your landlord came up to me. And I just thought Dallas is such a great place where where where, you know, people like John Zmierak live, there are landlords that that that actually, you know, think the way that we do, it really was. It was a very encouraging event for me, I have to tell you, and I'm sorry you couldn't be there. But I know that you've got you've got a busy life. What I've got is dozens of an open boxes, I'm moving apartments into the house of this wonderful new landlord is really good guy and a fellow believer in America and in Christ. And but I've got two beagles who have to be taught that this new apartment is not a place to go to the bathroom because it's all new to them. And I just am moving everything I own from one place to another. And so we're not doing video because if we did video right now, you would think I was actually Hunter Biden at a Motel six hiding from my Chinese handlers. Yeah, we don't want to look like that. I do not look my best because I do not have any of my toiletries. I can't I have one toothbrush. I can't find any soap. It's not brushes. Do you need, John? I know you got the two beagles, but you really need one toothbrush. I want you to downsize. At this point in life, you should be downsizing to one toothbrush and maybe one and a half beagles at most. No, my God. I look if I my girlfriend would allow it, I would have nine beagles, but nine beagles. OK, negotiated. We negotiated. I told her I have a two beagle minimum. So I rescued two twins together and brother and sister. And they lick each other's faces and they play fight. And they still act like seeing them. They're so you could die. You could die just looking at them. All right. So what shall we talk about? There's a lot in the news. We could talk about any of it. What are you writing about, thinking about? Well, I took a few days off of the moon, so I don't have as many columns. But I did. I did have one that I I spent was actually inspired by a conversation you and I had here. And then I talked about it with the great Charlie Kirk for a full hour. And it relates to my new book, which is coming out in a few weeks. No Second Amendment, no first. The title of the piece, the stream is called Liberal Christians see us as pets who need to be declawed. And this is a theme we've talked about before.

"Even her local sheriff said he wouldn't enforce the order. Her own attorney general said he wouldn't defend it in court. The only public figure who supported the governor of New Mexico in repealing the Second Amendment unilaterally was John Onwester, the Catholic archbishop of Santa Fe. That's right. When everyone else abandons you, the low IQ lavender Democrat who Pope Francis made bishop will be behind you. Unbelievable. We'll be back more with John's Mirack. I don't know where we've been. Could you tell me? Ladies and gentlemen, I'm still talking to John's Mirack and you get to listen. John, what else? So in my piece at Stream.org, liberal Christian CSS pets who need to be declawed, I have a segment from my new book, which is available for pre-order. No Second Amendment, no first. And that book, which you are kind enough to write the forward to, it's all about how our churches once were the sea beds of liberty. They were where the colonial militias would practice so that they could fight the Indians, fight the French, and then later fight the British for America's independence. And if you look at those sermons from the preachers in colonial era, it was all about the duty to risk your life, to lay your life down for your friends, to defend your community, to fight against crime and disorder and foreign invasion. There was no pacifism. There was no winsomeness. They weren't told to be winsome. That was muscular Christianity. That was strong. Winsomeness is one of the Ten Commandments. Are you sure about this, John's Mirack? You win some, you lose some. In fact, if you're winsome, you lose them all. Well, there's a place for winsomeness. It's just not a commandment at all times. That place for winsomeness is when you're dating and when you've done something that upsets your wife, then it's time to be winsome. Winsome is when you're apologizing because you did something wrong. Preaching the gospel is not something wrong. You should never apologize for it. Apologetics should not be apologetical. Sorry. When you are an apologist for the gospel, you have nothing to apologize for. That's better. So, I explain in my books, no Second Amendment, no First, which is available for pre-order from the publisher, Kalamo Books, how our churches have drifted away from the Christian worldview, from the Christian view of the person as this awesome creature, a little lower than the angels, made in the image of God, free but fallen, redeemed, responsible, worthy of freedom, with many duties, many responsibilities. Instead, we are the sad sack trousered apes that Charles Darwin described in his theory of evolution. And all the churches that have accepted Darwinism have accepted this sad sack pitiful view of man that really we're just kind of slubs who can barely grab our butts with both hands, who need to be protected from ourselves. We shouldn't have sharp objects because we'll put out an eye. And we need the government to protect us from ourselves and keep all the sharp objects safely locked away. And all we have are crayons because we are all permanent children. And the only adults in the room are the government and maybe the pastors who are in bed with Caesar and Mammon and Sodom. So, Archbishop John Wester is just the Catholic example of this kind of neutered veal calf pastor whose job it is to explain slowly using small words to the people why they don't have any liberties and they don't deserve any liberties. And Christ did not die to set them free. He's just our buddy up in heaven. He's made of nerf. He's inflatable, so you can fold him up and put him in the back of the minivan and take him with you to defeat. So, to me, the loss of gun rights, which is the most fundamental right, it's the final backup against tyranny that our founders put in the Constitution as like break an emergency, break glass. Okay. They want to take that away so that we can all be as helpless and neutered as the people in Australia who are locked in their homes during the whole COVID panic.

"The Republican Party from George W. Bush to Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush was the Washington Generals. It was their job to lose gracefully to the Democrats the way John McCain lost gracefully to Barack Obama. They were the designated managed opposition. It's like in communist Poland, before the fall of the Berlin Wall, there was one opposition political party permitted. It was called the Agrarian Party. It was allowed to get 2% of the vote every year so they could say it was not a one party state. That is the rise. We'll be right back with John Zmierak. Ladies and gentlemen, I'm talking to John Zmierak. John, literally yesterday I was with a group of people who were raving about you. And I said, you don't know the real John Zmierak. He's even better than you think. I brag on you everywhere because I'm just so honored that I get to talk to you every week on this program. But I want to let you know that there are people out there. This is a couple from Alabama that I was with yesterday, delightful couple. And they were going on and on about you. And I'll talk to you about that later off the air. But you and I are talking about Ken Paxton and what just happened. Now, you cracked a joke that I shared on Twitter, which I guess you got part of it from the lawyer for Ken Paxton, but that the Bush era in Texas is over and they can all move back to Maine. I said to Maine and Greenwich, Connecticut, which is even more bushy than Maine. I want to dump them in New Haven. They'll be so scared. They'll be hiding. Well, I actually even have a better idea. I think Governor Abbott should put everyone who voted to impeach Ken Paxton on a plane to Martha's Vineyard. That's good. That's that's my joke and my theory that this is what he should do. Put them all on a plane to Martha's Vineyard response. The locals respond. My response was to knock them all unconscious and dump them all in quinceañera dresses in Juarez, Mexico. But that's because you're a nicer person than I am. Yeah. Well, no, I think Martha's Vineyard would be cruel enough. But anyway, so here, let's move on. Let's just say Ken Paxton has a great political future. My hope is that he finds somebody who could be a great successor and then runs for Senate and knocks out that stuffed taxidermied rhino, John Cornyn, who is, you know, unbelievably useless for a Texas senator. He is like the kind of Republican you expect to get maybe from Connecticut or Maine. But we have him, you know, uselessly occupying a chair. He's like Mitt Romney, you know, or like, I don't know, Governor Weld of Massachusetts. That's right. Just pathetic pseudo-conservatives. But yes, that would be amazing. But what's the what's the takeaway here? In other words, the takeaway is they went after Ken Paxton, but the takeaway lost this badly is kind of interesting. It seems to be a lesson here. The takeaway is never let the elites scare you. Never let them call you in the backing down. Don't go out quietly. Go out like Scarface. You want a piece of me? Say hello to my little friend that go out like Scarface. That's but I mean, it's just interesting to me because obviously the Bush rhinos in Texas really believed that they were going to do this. And so you kind of see this where they overreach dramatically. And then it goes very badly for them. You see this with Trump in a sense. They keep trying this and this and this and his poll numbers keep going up. It's it's very interesting. These are not very talented people who've been overpraised and overrewarded all through their cosseted, privileged little lives. And they they simply cannot believe that they can't just coast to victory and people won't just fall down and prostrate themselves before them as they walk down the street. My goal is to is to get these so-called whistleblowers who who were working essentially for the Bush's and make them unemployable. I want them making smooth smoothies at Cracker Barrel for the rest of their lives. So that that's my project. But I'd like to talk about another political victory. The governor of New Mexico attempted to repeal the Second Amendment by personal decree. She decreed that gun violence is a public health threat like COVID. When you hear the words public health, you should check your wallet and count the fillings in your teeth because someone is trying to steal from you. Someone is trying to tyrannize you. The words public health are a golden calf.

"Folks, welcome back, talking to John Smirak about mind blowing news. So John, you have an article on this subject at stream.org. Folks, I hope you'll go to stream.org, find John's article, share it, please take this video, share it. We're on rumble, we need you to share what we do here. Obviously YouTube wiped out this program so it's hard for us to communicate. We'd appreciate your help. So John, what else? Now my next column is gonna be entitled. Thanks a lot, Tucker. You just made Michelle Obama the next president. And what I'm going to do is explain how when the left, when they can't lie anymore, when they can't pretend, oh, Barack Obama is a church going Christian and family man. Okay, okay, actually it's not a church, it's really just a Marxist organizing hall. And yeah, okay, he was on the down low, smoking crack and having sex with men in limos. But you know what? We only had to lie to you because you were so bigoted. Obama said he opposed same sex marriage. He was lying, but he was only lying because you were such bigots. And it took the Supreme Court shoving same sex marriage down your throat for you guys to then accept it. And now that you've accepted reality and you overcome your bigotry to some degree, now we can admit the truth that of course he was for same sex marriage. Of course he was having sex with strange men in limos. That is the norm. You are the bigot, you are the freak. And here's a pet minister, here's a pet Catholic Bishop who's going to come and say that you are the Pharisee and you are crucifying Jesus if you condemn Barack Obama or Hunter Biden for smoking crack or having sex with strangers or selling access to the White House to the dictator of Kazakhstan. Okay, so let's review. I'm a Christian, John, you're a Christian. We disapprove of sex outside of marriage because the Bible and the church teaches that any sex outside of marriage between a man and a woman is not God's plan. And because reality shows us the results of that in all the fatherless children in the ghetto who are on this fast, a lot of them are on the fast track to the penitentiary, young girls getting pregnant at 14, therefore they are statutory rape victims, but we won't talk about that. Kids growing up fatherless, the real world effects. This is not some taboo, like not mixing two different kinds of fabric that existed in the Old Testament. This is something that the necessity of families for children, of parents and stability for children, this is something that can be proved just by pure reason and statistical evidence. But the larger point that I wanna make, and of course what you just said is true and important, but the larger point I wanna make is that if I vote for Donald Trump, I don't change my position. I don't start to say, listen, adultery is a reality and we need to get over our taboos against adultery or sleeping with porn stars. We condemn that because it has always been wrong. The teaching of the church, the Christian belief has always said those things are wrong. What's happening now, of course, though, as I said earlier, is it only works one way. So they want to show what a hypocrite and a bum Trump is so they find something he said on a hot mic, which is now what, 18 years ago or something, and they make it sound like he gave it at a press conference or he gave it to both houses of Congress or something like that. Which would have been really funny, you have to admit that. The media is selective in that. And I think that's, to me, the bigger story here is that when you wake up and you realize, boy, oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, have we been lied to and we bought the lies and we need to wake up and understand that we're living in a country that is no longer our own. They're not even giving us the basic facts to make decisions. I think the bigger story is that the Republicans knew all this stuff in 2008 and wouldn't use it. John McCain- You mentioned that before and that's pretty scandalous. John McCain wanted to be the Washington general who lost gracefully to the Harlem Gold Trotters and he humiliated Sarah Palin, his staff treated her like garbage, that he basically spat on his base. He refused to point out that Barack Obama was part of a communist church run by an anti-American, anti-Semite lunatic, Jeremiah Wright, for like 15 years who married the Obamas and baptized their children. Imagine if Donald Trump had belonged to some white racist cult. I think it might've hit the newspapers at some point. But the Republican establishment preferred Obama to telling the truth about Obama, the way they preferred Biden to Trump, the way that they preferred the Democrats to the Republican base. Okay, and I have to make a point that I've not made on this program. Everybody is all concerned that Mitch McConnell is no longer fit to govern because he froze up. I prefer the frozen catatonic Mitch McConnell to the Mitch McConnell who can do anything. Because- I think that was a glitch in the matrix and the programmers have fixed it. Yeah. So he will not glitch again. But the idea that people are upset that he looks infirm and that he's freezing, I mean, I'm much more upset when he's not frozen. I'm much more upset when he's doing the evil things that he's doing. So the point you make about these establishment Republicans, they're part of the Uniparty, they are not friends of American working people, they're not friends of We the People, they don't share the founder's vision for which patriots have died. And you're quite right, without the complicity of John McCain, Barack Obama would have never gotten past this kind of stuff. So it's- The real enemy to me, to me, the real enemy is not the Democrats, it's the Republican traitors. They are the ones, they are the real enemies. It's like, if you have a noisy neighbor whose dogs bark all the time and he plays horrible tinny music, that's one thing, that's bad. If he moves into your house and asserts squatters' rights, that's a heck of a lot worse. The Republican Uniparty, the establishment, they are squatters who have taken the master bedroom and they're raising chickens in your house. And you wrote a piece about this concerning Ken Paxton in Texas, which we've only got 30 seconds, but say what you want about that. Okay, yeah, yeah. Right now, Ken Paxton is being on trial for made-up ethics charges in the Texas Senate. Basically, his crime was to defeat George P. Bush, who is a dumb leftist dilettante, to defeat him for attorney general. So the Bush machine is pulling in all their favors, going to all the Christian leaders in Texas and doing the whispering campaign to try to get Ken Paxton removed. If he is removed, the Democrats will steal the Texas elections, the way they stole the Michigan elections. Texas will flip from red to blue, and there will be no large state in America that stands against pornographic textbooks and abortion and open borders.

"That was a scary Frank Gorshin level impression of Lindsey Graham. Thank you very much. If I really try to impersonate Lindsey Graham, it would be just too mean. It would just be too, too mean. It's not- I know, and you'd have to put on a dress like Marlon Brando in Missouri Breaks. Yeah, I call him Aunt Lindsey. And I think Lindsey Graham missed his vocation of handing out the hymn books in a flower print dress in the back of the Baptist church. Instead, we have him in the damn Senate. All right, so this will be a teaching moment about our racist drug laws and about the toxic nature of homophobia. And both Barack and Michelle's, both their daughters will be going to college campuses and getting cheered and getting standing ovations and getting $250,000 speaker fees for talking about dad being on the down low. And thank God now everybody can be out and proud about their lifestyle of doing crack in limousines and having sex with strangers. That will be the new normal. This is how this is gonna be played out by our media. And remember, this stuff was all known back in 2008. During the campaign, you know John McCain knew all about this. The way he knew that Jeremiah Wright was a communist who probably doesn't believe in God, that the church Obama attended, where he said in his memoir, ghost written by terrorist bill layers, he said, Jeremiah Wright explained to me how I could identify myself as a Christian by joining an atheist Marxist church, a black liberation church that was explicitly communist that simply utilizes the gospel as toilet paper for the revolution that uses Jesus Christ as a cheap substitute for Che Guevara. So John McCain definitely knew that Obama attended a communist church and he stopped people in the Republican party from talking about it. He probably knew about this. Certainly by the time of John McCain's funeral, which I think still may be going on, but the days that were televised of McCain's funeral, Barack Obama, you have Michelle Obama and George W. Bush smooching and holding hands with Barack looking on. This is the American establishment all gathered together. So your average Republican will mock up. We're gonna continue going to a break. We'll be right back. More with John Smirak. Hey, rain and snow on everyone.

"You take hold of my hand. But I. My. Let's walk back talking to John's Merrick at stream dot org. You've written another article, another great article. Folks, go to stream dot org. Share these articles, please. They are just that good. John, it's called Christianity is not just another suicide cult. Go. Christianity isn't a suicide cult is the title. And it's basically a fundamental principle of how we understand Jesus. When we when we hear him say things in the gospel that we can't wrap our head around. How do we make sense of them? The answer is we listen to what the historical church and wiser people in ourselves have said about it. Because otherwise, if you just listen to the words of the gospel taken out of context, the way the left wing red letter Christians urge us to do, what you will come away with is self-contradictory nonsense, because when Jesus talking in different contexts to different people, he said things that seem to point in different directions. The most obvious example is there's a place in the gospel where Jesus talks about being eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven. If you took that literally, absolutely literally, you would go to the doctor and become a eunuch. Let's say you took it a little less literally. You would say Christians are called to universal celibacy. Marriage is unworthy. Christian, we're called to celibacy. That's the purest route. Everybody has to do that now. On the bright side, that would solve all our social problems in 70 short years. We wouldn't have to worry about the future of the church because there would be none. But if Jesus was really saying that he would be contradicting his father who told mankind, be fruitful and multiply. So if you're reading of the New Testament, radically contradicts everything that was said in the Old Testament, you're the one that's wrong. If you read the New Testament to be pacifist, then you're saying Jesus contradicts God who told Joshua to fight. If you think the New Testament calls for open borders, then it contradicts the places in the Old Testament where they're told to build walls and to keep the foreigners out of their cities. The temptation to treat Christianity as an entirely new religion, unconnected to the old Old Testament God, the temptation to demonize and attack the God as revealed in the Old Testament. It was the first heresy in the Christian church, the heresy of Marcion. The first and worst heresy in Christianity was the one that went against Judaism and attacked Judaism in the Old Testament. And ironically enough, it's the heresy that the Nazis resurrected in the 30s, cutting off the Old Testament from the new. They said it was too Jewish. They said the Old Testament is too Jewish to be to be part of the National Socialist, you know, way of life. And they they they kind of had a point. It was pretty Jewish. It was pretty Jewish. More progressive, aggressive Christians today think the Old Testament is too private, too capitalist, too ethnocentric, too homophobic, too patriarchal. It is all those things because God is those things. God is patriarchal. God wants border walls. God wants us to fight in self-defense. We know things like the landing at Normandy. God is not the sniveling Rainbow Dashiki woke loser that is reading Christianity today right now. Not that we're saying anything negative about losers. We respect you, whoever you are, even if you're on the editorial board of Christianity today. John, I want to be clear that people really do need to share these articles. These articles, the ones that we've been referencing today, one of them is a civics lesson about how America works. The other one is clarifying about what actual Christianity is. These are public services that you have done. And I want people to go to stream to find these articles and to share them again. Folks, you always say, what can I do? What can I do? You can do that. You can share these videos. Please do that. And finally, before we go, please go to Metaxas talk dot com and give generously to food for the poor. People are suffering. They need our help.

"Maybe Jeb Bush. Hey, that was that was another good one, John. That was another good one. Thank you very much. I don't know who your joke writers are, but man, they are on today. You really you really need to to post. Chris Christie was hangry because that is so it just it just says it all like like the best jokes they say so much. But last night, last night, my girlfriend called me up and read me Michael Kinsley's, I think, 2013 column. Chris Christie can't be president. He's too fat. And and and I really and Michael, she was reading the hilarious lines from Michael Kinsley. And I realized, wow, I'm the only person around still getting away with writing like Michael Kinsley did. Well, I tell you, I you know, recently, as many people know, I was on Jordan Peterson had me on his podcast and he asked me some question. And I want you know, I quoted the Walt Whitman line from The Song of Myself. You know, I am large. I contain multitudes. And I jokingly said I said to Jordan, I said, you know, you know who said that, right? Chris Christie. And I moved on. You know, I started out with just a cheap, a cheap joke. But but the fact of the matter is that what we're talking about, we kind of have to do dumb jokes because it's very painful to think that we have people like Chris Christie, like Mike Pence, who just a handful of years ago, I thought, you know, they're basically on the good side.

"Every morning at the mine, you could see him arrive. He stood six foot six and weighed 245, kind of broad at the shoulder and narrow at the hip. And everybody knew you didn't give no lip to Big John. Big John, Big John, Big Bad. Hey there, folks. I warned you that if you stay tuned to this program, nobody was going to get tough. We are at that season right now. I have as my guest waiting in the wings. His real name is John's Mirack. But we will just call him we'll just call him John and no one will know who it really is. As you know, in our two, we've got a brand new guest. We got lots of new guests this week, some fun guests. But right now we have our tried and true friend John's Mirack here to talk about everything. John, welcome. Hey, I get to talk to you. John, you seem very unenthusiastic. Is everything OK? No, no, no, no, no, no. No, I'm just thinking you have some fun guests. I think I am sort of the strong look here by definition, the most fun. So just the strong enough. No, you're the you're the most fun and the strongest medicine. I am the syrup of Ipecac that makes you Ipecac, Ipecac, Ipecac, the worst baby name in history. Ipecac. OK. Was there a Saint Ipecac in the Catholic Church? No, but there can be some day. Yes. OK, John, you wrote a piece at Stream.org. Let's let's why don't we start there? This is some tough stuff. Let's go there. Sure. It's called The Left is using the Nazi playbook for taking power. And now hold on a second. Yes. Why is that interesting or any kind of news? Like, don't we already know that? Like, where's the news in that? Like, that's a fact. We see it every single day. But you have some new take on how the left is using the Nazi playbook to take power. Yeah, very detailed take. The thing is that fascist and Nazi and racist are all words that have been drained of almost all meaning. It's like if it's if it's raining and you're really depressed as it's raining, you'll say, oh, this weather is so racist. I mean, it's just a term. It's an empty, meaningless term for something you don't like. Take back these fascist mashed potatoes. They're undercooked. Well, it's kind of like the like the F word. Everybody uses it just as a modifier. It used to be, you know, people would say damn or people would say darn or people would say now it's really it's kind of gross. But you're quite right. Calling someone a racist or a Nazi or a fascist, whatever. This is sort of it has no meaning anymore. But I want to do I want to use it in the literal sense. OK, this is fascist in the negative sense. This is genuine, real talking about the actual real Nazis, not moms for liberty, not little boys reading Bible verses at drag queen story hour. I'm talking about the actual stormtroopers in brown shirts who beat up Jews and Catholics and socialists and and labor union members in the streets of Munich and Berlin. OK. OK, well, what is happening with our Department of Justice and with the left in America is that it is following the Nazi playbook. The Nazis started out in 1923, trying to seize power by force in that comical beer hall push. It failed completely. And Hitler had committed treason, he should have been put up against the wall and executed. He wasn't. Instead, he got a very light sentence from a sympathetic judge. He got a cozy prison cell where he was allowed to have a typist. And he wrote Mein Kampf. That is literally what happened. He got he got a slap on the wrist from a sympathetic judge. He wrote Mein Kampf, came out of prison and became a political activist. The left in the 70s in America went from just opposing the Vietnam War to favoring the victory of North Vietnam, to favoring communism. The radical left in America tried to gain power by violent force, too. The weathermen, the There were numerous acts of horrendously violent terrorism by people like Bernardine Dorn and Bill Ayers, who, when they were caught, got very light prison terms, came out and wrote books. Bill Ayer wrote Barack Obama's books for him. So you've got people who try to use violence to gain power. It backfires. They go to prison. They come out. They decide they're going to use a different means to get to power. Hitler decided no more street violence until we know we can completely get away with it, until we control the police. Then then our street violence will be untrammeled and unpunished. So as the Nazis gained support in city after city, the brown shirts would be able to beat up their political opponents in the streets. When the cops arrested everyone, they would punish the the the the socialists and the Catholics for defending themselves and let the Nazis walk free, which is exactly what the Democrats did in the George Floyd riots.
