Even the Pope Disagrees With Republicans

"Right, Supreme Court denied a religious liberty challenge to New York healthcare workers who were fighting against the state's vaccine mandate. But not without a descent from clarence Thomas, they claimed that COVID vaccines developed using aborted children, he argued that healthcare workers had legitimate injections to use in the vaccine, which he said were developed using stem cell lines from aborted children. First of all, in fact, COVID among many, many vaccines have used, yes, from they were frozen more than 5 decades ago. Yes. Right? Even the Catholic Church does not believe there should be legitimate religious corrections to using the vaccine. And the COVID vaccines have zero aborted fetus. Cells in them. And the Pope just gave communion this week. The Nancy Pelosi. Thank you. Because the Bible's not against abortion and the Republican Party is not pro life.

Jesus overturned I for an eye in sermon on the mount, he commands you to forgive 70 times 7. He stopped an execution and said only the sinless can execute. Do you have access to what we call a Bible? That's just one of the many bits slapping. John people think does daily with his Bible. Well, I finally did a 50 tweet thread last weekend about all of this at about how stupid this is about how on biblical this is. The Bible's not against abortion. Wait, wait, let me say that again. Hang on. The Bible is not against abortion. God makes it clear a fetus is property and exodus, and that he values a woman's life more than a fetus. The Bible, not against the Jesus against the death penalty. So all of these guys can fight to make poor women poorer, which is what these red states are doing. They're going to have all this life, and they don't want to have their taxes raised to pay for it. They're going to make poor women poor. They can fight to force women to bear their rapist children CDC says there are 3 million women in America who have become pregnant because of rape, so they can fight for that.

If Not for Donald Trump, Roe v. Wade Would Still Be Intact

"John zamira. You were just making the point, which I've made in the past. If it were not for Donald Trump, roe V wade would have not been overturned. If it were not for Donald Trump, Kavanaugh would not have made it through, the nonsense, the evil lies that they put up against him. He would have been forced to withdraw his nomination even though these were totally unsupported lies. They would have said, well, it's the good of the country. That's what the Republican establishment, the rhinos, the so called moderates. That's what they exist for. They are surrender buckets. It is their job when the Democrats start cheating at basketball to lose gracefully to the globe products, like the Washington generals used to. It is the job of Republicans like George Bush and McCain and Romney and Adam kinzinger and Liz Cheney. Their job is to turn over our institutions and our power and our wealth in our country to our enemies in a gracious way. They are the Vichy government that Hitler put in charge of France. They are there to pretend to represent us and pretend to protect us while in fact enforcing the Nazis will on us and making us feel like they're on our side.

"Okay, so again, let's review folks. Their gutless. They admit sort of that, yeah, roe V wade is made up. And I think I want people to understand John how extraordinary that is because the Supreme Court has one job. It's to interpret the constitution in 73, they misinterpret the constitution, deliberately, which is an amazing thing. It's a power. Yeah, it's a coup d'etat by 5 lawyers as justice Scalia once said that the Democrats gave up on a menu with us too. The old fashioned way, like the equal rights amendment because it's hard and they'll fail. So they just decided to have the Supreme Court do it and be like a sitting constitutional convention, 5 guys ruling the country by decree. If you're not comfortable with that, you should be happy with the overturning of roe V wade. Regardless of how you feel about killing children for sexual convenience, even if you're for that. You should be happy that 5 guys are not running the country like it's a mafia family.

Caller John: Why the Left REALLY Supports Planned Parenthood

"John. Welcome to the outside of the show. Hey, Brandon. First time caller. Then listen to your show ever since it came on sale and I love your show. One of the things that nobody seemed to talk about is the Democrat party, why they're supporting Planned Parenthood. So strongly. And it's because they're taking tax dollars and they're funding Planned Parenthood and then Planned Parenthood in return is then sending money back to the DNC and all these people that are Democrats. So all these Democrats are getting funded through our tax dollars, whether we like it or not. And this is a big problem. And then what ends up happening is once these people decide that they're going to go out and retire because we've got a bunch of Democrats and even some Republicans that have decided to pull the plug and leave, they get to keep all those tax donations. Those donations that people have sent into them. And they get to keep that free and clear as if it was just money earned. We've got a problem in this country. And some of these laws that these politicians have created to benefit themselves personally is what's destroying this country. John, thank you so much for the call and I couldn't agree with you more. These people are crooked. I think that Donald Trump exposed that. If Donald Trump didn't do anything else, he exposed how crooked these people

But to know that this decision immediately after this decision came down, states started to act to ban abortions, shutting down abortion facilities. Within one day we knew of over 400 children that had been spared the violent death of abortion. And this is really a turning point for our entire culture and our entire country.

So I remember I was in Chicago and I drove to Grand Rapids, Michigan. That's not an easy drive for those of you that have done it throughout the night because the next morning we are starting our door knocking for a certain candidate in western Michigan. I got up very early and rally the troops and told everybody that in western Michigan, we need to put our forces together to go get a certain person elected by the name of Peter Meyer. Now mind you, I don't know why we endorsed Peter Meyer largely because I thought it was a flip district or something like that, a way to kind of gain ground. But what an incredible disappointment and let down. Peter Meyer in western Michigan has become. He has become a camera seeking attention grabbing self righteous congressman who voted for the impeachment of Donald Trump was like one of the first things he did right out of the gate. He sprints to try to go on cable television at every single corner imaginable. And he's someone I have very little respect for. And he's got to go and he's got to go right now.

"If. Listening, real quick sorry John I don't want WanNa. Job. Can You? Can You repeat that? You show me a relationship truths. That's treatable. That's quotable. You might want to jot man wanted. Just sang that showed me your relationship true and I'll show you your relationship with yourself. Because the reality is is if you're playing the game where you're lying to people manipulating than telling them half truths, it tells me the relationship you have with truth in. It says while you're in bondage to a broken image of pain in your life. It tells me why you're tormented. But if you have a relationship with truth where it's solid in truth is put in front of everything that you do. Then you're going to develop through the course of time, a healthy identity because your absolute is the truth show. If you're someone who dealt with paint, I'm just listen. We're talking talking hypotheticals right now. Right? In your insert your issue, but if issue is rejection. Will what is the truth? Yeah go ahead. At some point you have to stand on your feet does it matter that someone is rejected you? Well if it does, then let's take time to heal from that pain and talk about it. But at some point, you have to be a whole person where you can stand on your own two feet and if you have people where their ejection is so painful because they won't give you space maybe you need to find new space with New People. Because the truth will make you the truth will make you whole. And so you know again, your tweet a statement here show me your relationship with the truth. And I'll show you your relationship with yourself. Yeah I. think that's powerful because you know until we're confident who we are. You know in Christ and as people you know we're were never really going to begin to develop that new life that that the scripture promises us and the transformation you're going through that process of identifying our relationship with truth but then taking on the mind of Christ. As all set and beginning to renew our thoughts. And being transformed by the renewing of our mind but that only. Happens once we embrace. Oh so here's the the second part of that. All throw in. New? People. You're putting truth in the forefront of everything that you're doing. And then this is what happens sometimes in the process of healing and maybe you go through different incremental seasons, right? When you encounter truth that is painful. This is where some people get lost in addiction. They do real good for a moment, but then they encounter truth it becomes painful and hurts. That is where you've got to have the right people around you because your old crew is going to take you to old places and this take you down the old ways you used to go down. But if you surround yourself with a new crew, new friends, New People, the right people they're going to help you process the pain anytime you put truth in front of you did hurts it's going to. You're going listen there's going to be paying. If you stay in addiction, there's going to be paying if you heal the differences is that healing has an end date? and.

So I'm driving home from work one day pursuing this deal as though I've got the money to close to Bill I didn't have enough might abide his company but all the sudden it's getting close and I'm like. Wow. I think this thing GonNa Happen what the Hell GonNa pull this off. Right wasn't a the sheets and he's talking about. Buying money with no money are buying real estate with no money down by basically leveraging the the sellers asset, take equity out of it, getting them to take a second lien on their real estate and you can get in. That's how you can get the deal too I. thought will. They know these grand on this building is worth about four hundred, thousand I call banker at the time I said, hey, at there's a building I'm trying to buy. It's worth four hundred would you lonely two hundred and and he said Yeah will but I'm GonNa have to take Earth position on the note and I can't imagine any seller doing that, and here's the thing John I would like to see if you've got any stories where you can Kinda backed me up on this. It made really anybody out there. That's listening. That would hear the story about me buying an individual's business with the equity from their office building because that's what I did I convince this seller. Hey. If you will do this, I'm going to borrow two hundred thousand dollars of equity out of your building I'm GonNa give you the fifty, six thousand pay off your notes. Now you don't owe anything on we get that out of the way. I'm. GonNa Make GonNa take portion of that two hundred thousand and make a down payment on the franchise I'm buying from you and I want you to owner finance the difference between that down payment. And the what on the franchise as well as finance the building on a twenty year note, would you do that and if I said, I can't do that absolutely not I'm giving my building away if you don't pay then the bank gets their money but I'm left hanging. But here's the deal John. First of all, it showed me that there's more than one way to in a cat, a lot of people that are listening to this podcast. Think there's some magic formula for buying a business of he's real estate or whatever. Also. This was a seller that was ready to get out. His father was getting out of business after fifty six years. He never intended to run his business by himself and so after I guess, it was three months something like that. I don't remember he calls me up he said fine I'll do the deal exactly the way you want to do it in. So essentially what I did is I leveraged his asset to acquire data set as well as the business with with it. So I bring that up just because you many think about that when you were willing to exchange your services for some equity. Talked to the listeners about the about your experience with. If you've got a great idea and you're passionate about it not leading capital be a limiting factor. Jason. That's a that's a that's a great story Real estate lends itself. To that, because you've got I mean real estate's its own asset class people love real estate you know it doesn't tend to walks it doesn't tend to deteriorate in value. Are It Relatively stable compared to you know what we've seen in the market for the last four weeks that kind of thing. But there are other. Pieces to this and really what you're talking about is.

kind words of Barbara in San Jose four one five eight zero eight zero eight ten a let's go to let's go to what moves in order here gene calling from Sacramento gene welcome to KGO hi John thank you for bringing this up because I think there's a middle ground that I would just like to put out there and it's from my own experience even though I went to school back in the dark ages before the turn of the century we had a volunteer actually it was one of the students dad he was retired from the airforce and he walked our halls and he kept us under control but we you know we still have the police there but this guy I was kind of a kinder gentler person managing us it fast forwards when my son was in school ten years ago there was a police officer that was more partners so my son got into trouble he helps me guide him the other way so I see that the beauty of both of them and so there's probably a middle ground where there's parents or grandparents or community members to come and get involved with the school and it doesn't it won't work for all school districts obviously but you don't bring the community and making it a community issue to help raise the children I remember Mr Reynolds finally but I also remember you didn't skip class if you copy and he walks you to the I remember those days but see that's the key it's the familiarity and having that relationship and let me emphasize not being afraid and that to me is so quick right all right you're right thank you thank you I'm I'm flooded here Leslie who has been a school teacher for many years says I don't see any reason for a school district have police force or to contract with police departments to patrol schools police have more important things to do than watch kids in an environment where they should already be safe it's it's unseemly to have armed police officers walking around on public school it is a responsibility of people who work in the public schools residents of the neighborhood around the schools and the parents of students in the school to provide safe environment more people need to get involved with what is happening in their neighborhood schools I agree with everything you said Leslie except the advantage was not to have police there twenty four hours a day if you will or during the school day but to let kids establish a relationship with police officers I think that's a good thing because it it lessens the concerns of the tensions this comes from Jerry I have a degree in law enforcement administration of justice I also took police classes when I was in college John what we need in terms of the police in schools we need them as teachers not enforcers I've met some great teachers that were saucers look that may be true too but see I just want the kids to be used to sing a police officer and not be afraid I know that's what I'm looking for am I wrong let's go to if that calling from Concord event welcome to KGO hi Josh I would rather be honest you have no idea how much we are on the same page so our work with our allies are working here hearing insurance and I work with women that was formally charged that's something that I realized in working with underserved populations why would we expect for them to do anything that we actually do some follow any process which we have not taken the challenge to build trust and value in a relationship I see nothing wrong with police officers they are ships are seen walking while the police officers knocking on the school grounds that they are to have the price edge let's see some mixed with the police department yup let's see some softball games but the police department specially from customer service let's see them outside of their normal school last let's engage with them outside of a policing for next is that if I if I were a superintendent of schools I would hire you that is exactly what yeah it's it it's not that we take police officers off the streets is it we let kids know the police officer who is there is there to help them not scare them to death right no yes it's very easy most common strains you know it's not raining surgery for cancer do not charge the officers they're trusting you with their friends children's and what they'd seen on TV hello let's show them something so they can figure out something different so they can respond you're you're exactly right I even remember although I was not a great sports person the police athletic league where the police formalized schools with athletic programs I'm a police will not in uniform where the coaches and they were the ones who supervised the games and it it reduce tension because all of a sudden exactly what you're saying it was human being human being well I'd like to know what are they going to replace the police force at this point because we're gonna have to change something yup what officer friendly needs to change his destination in a safe harbor collective approachable a cultural attitudes rather after school or image to lease contest and had an asset that's what all this boils down to what is the psychology of economics a particular officer becoming an artist yeah I heard he main what is it one question of Jackson well one of the arguments being made is exactly the argument you're making the object of a good police officer is to know where he or she is to know the people in their area and to have a reputation as somebody who is trustworthy and I think that's good public relations when I was when I was in high school we have something called the police community relations task force I was on the police community relations force when I was in high school as a whole and that was after the the riots they were really riots but the disturbances are white and JVM the whole point was to bring us all together and you know what solve the problem but it sure establish trust and that was what we were absolutely yeah listen I I want you to know that I have a high regard for your point of view not because you agree with me but because you put what you are saying at a practice and more power to you absolutely all right here thank you thank you Steve emails so do we now want to demonise police departments across all fifty states clearly use of force really does need to change reform is in order we all agree on that but if school districts decide says Steve to sever their relationship with law enforcement and having on site police presence what will we do when a disgruntled sixteen year old student decides to shoot up a classroom and teachers with no police in sight that sounds frightening you know you're right and that's the whole point I don't want to condition a kid to think they're gonna be attacked at school but every school now has some plan and that the teachers and the students on the police should work together said the kids just something happens god forbid although I can't mention Gautam school okay heaven forbid I don't know if I can mention having but whatever it is that we have a method that we have a way of relating and we have people we trust who can help the.

"Limited on time there for you or you slip it on time John of Pennsylvania John I can give you a couple of minutes what's your question what's your comment okay well I have two questions for making quick the first would be what the doctor Lee's response is to the study published two days ago in a new internal medicine which led to the study of the lactic effective control support when we was that's where was that study from let's make sure we're talking about the same study John university of Michigan's public to date published thirty years ago okay are you familiar with that study Dr leads Minnesota and it's not a prophylactic suddenly it was a post exposure early treatment study and one of the one of the problems with that particular study it was kind of rushed into production but and the study design they didn't have the time they started they didn't have good test availability so we don't have documentation that the people in the study actually had called at nineteen and the authors talk about that is the weakness of the study there are several other weaknesses in that particular study we don't know how long people had symptoms in retail for example the study showed that you had this treatment within the first five days of the element and the symptoms and they used tighter criteria in the university of Minnesota did so while I think it's okay it wasn't really the best designed to answer the question and that we really need to know who are we trading cove at nineteen now that we have better tactical ability and the point of care test that's available in five to fifteen minutes then we would be able to have better diagnosis at the time the treatment is started out that with the limitation at that particular studies that study John is not a university of Michigan university Minnesota started right with a sort of my my apologies no problem and what's your second question if you can quickly very quickly does your station still hold the contrarian viewpoints that HIV does not cause aids and that vaccines to have a causal link to autism because those are not backed by scientific evidence that is not an organizational stance it's a it's an individual medical opinion by some doctors not all doctors in the organization hello to anyone view and those are not organizational that really misrepresents but the organization stands for we have always been since nineteen forty three the organization that promotes independent medical thinking and evaluation and we advocate for patients and for doctors to be able to treat patients individually so I think that the mis characterization of the organization number one and number two there isn't anything I've been through all of their meetings for the twenty five years I've been a member I've never had any one position held by every member of the organization hi John procedure call thank you very much Alan soggy she gonna wrap it up first go ahead L. very quick comment well which is it is it money or politics if Donald Trump never said those words I can't even pronounce it hydroxy quark when would we have had this out here on the market dating lives and what is requir more views that like he did use the ship much you didn't use that other call I believe I believe Cuomo has used it correctly correct me if I'm wrong doctor blade Andrew Cuomo issued the most restrictive order in the entire country okay for Quinn he restricted it to hospitalized patients and they had to be on a clinical trial not every hospital has the staff and resources to ramp up a clinical trial in the setting of a major emergency when they were small yes you heard the nurse money politics eight both it is a political opposition to the president and it is money behind a vaccine coalition algae and the CDC and NIH all of them stand to gain on financial patent hold that they have loyalties that they stand to gain on and Gilly add pharmaceutical company is supporting many of the nine of the people on the expert panel at NIH that were making the treatment recommendations and instead of recusing themselves date condemned I dropped the Cork went and pushed one best of the year which has not been FDA approved for anything except this emergency approval and if they stop the clinical the one clinical trial early it's truly egregious and it's unprecedented that there has been such a orchestrated both political and financial incentives behind the scene that the public doesn't know what is going on that is biasing the information against this drug that has been safely used worldwide for sixty five years it's unprecedented hello preset the question that's a good a good question I think was a great answer presage a call I'll talk to you soon good way to wrap up that is the bottom line and what Abu organization is trying to do is put the decision between doctors and patients where it belongs get the governors get that bureaucrats and get the medical board out of it let's go back to the FDA regulations that allow off label prescribing the whole continuum of patient care outpatient nursing home in patient whatever the doctors and patients think is necessary let them have the freedom to use that and if we can't get that then we need to push for the president to issue an emergency authorization under the defense production act put that decision making in the hands of patients let them buy it and let them have it over the counter eight the safety comparison relative to Tylenol and and shades and curtains open headquarters is actually better than most classes of drugs we did the research on that going back to nineteen eighty two looking at safety data on current over the counter medicines and I got the gore Glen doesn't have the risks that are associated with many of those I just can't talk to police thank you for your passion thank you for your your efforts in this area again a folks want more information they can go to the website of the American Association of physicians and surgeons and and that organizations been around for how long by the way I think forty three and by the way Dan I'm slowly their listeners with their spot I had no financial incentive to anybody except I serve my patients so I don't have any ties to pharmaceutical companies or political parties or health systems I don't say that because I really do speak as an independent physician and patient advocate and that's what our organization has been since it was founded in nineteen forty three so that's that's an organization's get very in very close to being eighty years in existence and if you'd like to get information on that you can go to a a P.

This is our style and her pretty happy with it. Absolutely you said before. We started John that you wanted to taste. Actually the Zinfandel before the Merlot Cabernet. I would never have guessed that I would have always said Os in. Probably the most vibrant flavor. Let's put at the end. Otherwise the others are we usually you taste as infidels right after the Quila but our styling is much more restrained for him hats and I'll hurry not is amazing all the way. Yeah absolutely so I do have Zinfandel here. Just since we're naturally on that topic and you've got seventy nine percent concussion over. Yes you're allowed. You don't have to ask permission to taste your minds. John I seventy nine percent. The ZINFANDEL nineteen percent petites route. Eighteen Percent Carignan which is really interesting. That kind of bland. But of course you know to be labeled Zinfandel in California or any other varietal. Espy seventy five percent or higher. So you can put other grapes in the blend.

can't restrict the kinds of weapons people can own you can't buy a bazooka you can't have a flame thrower the guys who make these arguments are the people who say the tree of liberty is watered with the blood of patriots we need the protection against the government we didn't have fifteen for that you need something well beyond whether or not you're going to have an assault weapon I am coming from the Sault weapons meaning that the horses **** that's full of was correct great job Joe all right let's get your busy phones eight hundred nine four one show on you want to be a part of the program Gino Florida Gina hi how are you glad you called and thanks for being with us will be watching Florida in two hundred and thirty eight days it goes fast absolutely and I'll be voting so first thank you and your wonderful staff or just think informational trickle I always use news of the springboard not as a starting place not an ending place primary resources are are where it's at but thank you for all that you do thank you a man on a cliff sure whether the comment on the clip that you played last week from the view and this is not just coming from if you're coming but just all over the place from the other way to those that don't know you're talking you're talking about that hard hitting award winning news broadcasts the view with joyless Behar that one okay absolutely where they said that trump and the Republicans want to take your health care it's common they're gonna take your healthcare and they're gonna take away your pre existing conditions lies lies lies anybody that you can play clip after clip after clip of trump saying in a lot of Republicans out there saying in Congress that they are not going to take away pre existing conditions one and secondly I'm one of the ones that's already happened thanks to the Obama Kerr thanks Obama Biden to Lucy in the Democrats I was priced out of the my affordable health insurance I have been self employed actually I'm twenty one years between my kids I had a family of three at the time before lawn care the only three now and are self employed I was able to provide that insurance for my family before obamacare for about three hundred and fifty Bucks that same health insurance when I got was self employed again back in twenty eighteen and stayed for cost me one thousand five hundred ninety five dollars with only one choice and I'm I'm middle America so they're they're not talking about that those people that have to now go on and share program which isn't technically insurance they're not talking about those people that are walking shirts because of on the care I'm one of many isn't it sad that they only buy one thing I can say is at least you don't have to pay the tax for not having it as insurance on the one hand on the other hand I'm sure you want health insurance I'm currently in and trump trump thanks to trump that mine is now zero dollars right you couldn't get rid of that that Sir that that tax but he it was you could recall in a way that we you know you're not penalized so then the sense but look I have family members he he'll even can't afford it with the obamacare system subsidy they still have four I have a sister live brain cancer and she couldn't afford fifty dollars doesn't sound like much right but that's a lot of money and nobody care they can talk about some of the people I know one person that can help out because the pre existing condition again art work nobody is starting to take that away so pharmacy one thing I will say listen this is not a minor thing but it's all part of the president but in this economic package unveiled today which I'm glad he did and that is look the cruise ship industry if you're on the cruise ship industry you're dead right now and so they're putting together an aid package those industries that are being impacted the most are going to give federal relief I agree with that it's fine it's it's totally understandable through no fault of their own whatsoever the same with hourly workers they're afraid if they take off a day they're gonna lose their jobs those protections are put in place and similarly if you're gonna get tested for corona there will be no copay needed necessary for anybody to get their their test all of that is important frankly you know it's it ought to be like to be honest you know the type of thing we now that the tests are being manufactured so rapidly that if people want to get a test I know when I get a flu shot every year I go to my local right aid and I get you know get my shot there I didn't bother going to my doctor for that right again I mean bottom line is that when you have socialized medicine it it it is not compatible with capitalism or the market that we have so what they're gonna do is essentially and this is my fear with the Democrats plan Wetherby Sanders or Biden is that they're going to force us in a position like they forced my family to harm to rely on the government I don't wanna have to rely on the government of joint find and I'm here to help others and like you I will tell you what but I'm just happy to be blessed in my life that I have all my friends so many of them are doctors and and they're great at what they do and all of them complain about the very things you're mentioning from their point of view they didn't they really become doctors and do you know medical school first colleges and medical school and then residency fellowships and then get a job and then when you try to open an office you know there I mean it's just that they didn't do it for the money they did it because they love it and so in a sense I have access to concierge service because I'm home my friends that are doctors at three in the morning and I got to pick up the phone and say what's up and I need help they'll be there for me that's a blessing but it's like guys like you know Josh number at atlas MD who we've featured many times on this program is proven for fifty Bucks a month you get unlimited care twenty four seven concierge care like just like I have all of the users always a doctor on on on duty they take care of pretty much everything they they actually by the pharmaceuticals the rack so you you walk out of your doctor's office paying ninety five percent less for your prescriptions are because that's the discounts he's getting even on some cancer treatments like breast cancer they're covered with Dr Burnett was empty and he's duplicated this you know almost a thousand times now around the country and he's become an expert on it you couple that fifty Bucks a month you pay with a catastrophic plan if god forbid you get cancer or have a bad accident or god forbid you have a heart attack and bam you're covered you got everything covered there's better ways to do this Republicans weren't ready it's the biggest thing that they've blown we're waiting on a Supreme Court decision again on obamacare will see that brings us to where we land with that but the end of the day the way to fix this if you really want to fix it isn't two hundred thirty eight days vote for if you go to vote for president trump and shock the world again you might want to bring along some Republican congressmen and senators with them because if we get the majorities in both houses while the investigation madness ends and great things can get done that we could cement in that will make good to make us a freer better country because you're right you said Hey I don't want the government provided me anything they don't do anything well yes that's why this whole new green.

"Work from home eliminate that long commute work just two or three hours a day and earn a full time income or for most of us honestly much more than what you would think it's a full time income I used to be part of corporate America I work for a big company in middle management and I worked a ton of ours and yeah the pay was okay but you know it never seemed to be what I really wanted out of life it certainly didn't feel like the American dream that's for sure I was just honestly working for the man and it was a grind now John I work from home I make more money than I ever imagined and more importantly I have more time to spend with my family and my friends so let me explain how I did it and how you can do the same thing if you've ever heard of short term trading you know it can be very lucrative short term trading simply means getting into a stock trade and getting out of the trade the same day so it's very different than your typical long term stock investment many people have become millionaires from short term trading there's big money in it but most people who try this on their own fail why is that it's because for the average person trading stocks is complicated and it can take years to learn what you're doing well while you're learning you're losing money with trial and error and people don't want to lose money so they give up folks here's what we've done and it's actually pretty simple.

"On your mind today Hey John I was just sort of say amen domination and you previous caller that I would like to also express is a little bit better than than they did basically what happened with this these Amy Goodman reports last week because we were we were subjected to the biggest news story of a really big news week because under prodding underlying problem that prevents the public from reason really addressing all issues is this technology a lot of the technologies incentivize by widely dividing people so first we're stuck in a polarization for profit world and tell that's this is fixed we're gonna get know where all these things you talk about Tom Brady that because we can't figure out what's going on now I'm reading it correctly wrestle hearings is what they recommend it because we need to get to school it's gonna have all Iowa election a couple weeks and so people who really need to know we can can somehow without the help of lawmakers are legislation do something about the selection because I guarantee a man from what I heard in that in that series reports it's going to get so much worse this year there now hundreds of called companies like Cambridge analytica Facebook is a crime scene for hiding all the information and how trump was elected and what he described in the reports last week is that they specifically targeted no Roddick's category world yeah they taught in the Roddick's in Wisconsin Pennsylvania Ohio and Michigan and that's how our question will president and crank them up yeah they they they they crank them up the of you found the lever to freak people out you find people who are already so I freaked out and you find the level of double freaks them out and and you totally freaked them out and yeah I'm I'm with you yeah they're doing that now one city commissions we're doing on state wraps it it it's gonna be like falling off a log because DJ team a comma grammar all going to get reelected we're gonna see fascists or state governments and I am just so worried I've been studying and teaching about who's in college you're in Great Falls for almost ten years teaching persuasion athletes media manipulation mind bending movies is the way this the class started out because I noticed a an epidemic of mental maladies with the students today you know close to half the students are really can have a gate to modern world are surrounded by screens nobody in this country's been taught film history right so good so Doug given how given how essentially psychopathic he you know conscience free and skillful these guys are on the right how should the left respond we gotta get congressional years because we have a public house we have the people's house we need congressional hearings to start as soon as his impeachment things done and she S.

"Morning John I was calling well first of all I read your book at your rival the richest and it it's it's really remarkable book I mean that I read read it twice I mean it's just unbelievable that the amount of research looks like went into it so I'm I'm really looking forward to reading the only occurs ebook it's it's it's right up my alley because I was I was bullied in high school let me if we just because I had better grades and I've you know I'm not you know a lot of the girls like me in high school because of the way you know my looks or whatever you know whatever young people like and I'm like my thirties right now and now I'm in a corporate setting and I'm I've managed to climb up the corporate ladder despite the bullying and I realize that the higher up again at the the more bullying becomes prevalent in order to keep the the the underlings I guess in their place and I was wondering there possibly be something in a purse in it not only themselves but another person the the the victim I guess you would say of the bullying that attracts the actual bullying behavior in triggers the bully in T. into attack mode on that particular person much like the way you would say a lying and takes out of his al in an entire herd that perhaps you know wouldn't otherwise be picked on you know I had good grades of the top of my class C. many university I was never popular though so I really think that the fact that you touch unpopularity being a factor that really got me interested you know really got me interested in your book and I I just can't wait till it comes out but how do I get transferred into corporate setting because I've seen the pulling happen where I've actually had people come to me with with video of of them being bullied by upper management and I said well you know let's let's go to the upper management and we'll we'll look at the video together and and I want them to explain themselves for this video how did that go over well what happened was we we I called in to my office it was someone that was that was below me but they were still under management but I call him into the office because I've been a victim of bullying too so I know how it is exactly like you're describing where you you can tell somebody an important figure most of you know because then they won't a lot of the times they will take action and to fight with right when you confronted them with the video Michael how did they react okay well what happened was I said welcome to my office so what happened was they both within the both within the office but when I said you know this person is saying your bowling alley our naming names and you know this person says you're you're you've been aggressive towards them and undermining their work and if you're undermining their work you're undermining organization so we need we need to discuss this in and put an end to it and I said I need you see a video and the bully flat out refused to see the video they refused to even look at it literally the first of their their their eyes walked out of the office reported me for harassment told me that I was I was harassing them in the workplace and surprisingly I was reprimanded for making them uncomfortable there you go John the exactly what you were talking about that happens in school yeah well it it's like a whistle around so you know you're blowing the whistle on the like it's the same kind of thing and that we see with the kind of reception the most popular whistle blowers get for the most of the people are you know mostly certainly there these doubts does like to but I thank you for the kind words Michael and I hope you like the book as much Canada no I don't believe that I certainly know what the victims of going to blame themselves of the something in them but I think there is probably a well perceived weakness for and people that are just decent and calling because those are not the kindness and empathy and charity towards others are not qualities that sociopath staff I don does it work I mean in your research and was talking to victims in the experts and so forth does it work to stand up to a bully to challenge them and two if need be bloody their nose I think that's that's that's probably does work most of the time it's certainly if you're successful at it I don't know the worst with all beliefs but yeah if if you if you can successfully points the boy in the in those again run away now that you're you're suddenly begin to become popular but I wanted also tell Michael that there is a a large section of the book it detailing bowling in the workplace which is also very prevalent on the wildcard line Lynn is in Vancouver Canada Lynn good morning welcome to coast so much Richard for taking my call and don thank you so much for writing this book now I have a just a couple of observations and also to wrap it up in a question and then take my answer off the air so I just wanted to give you a quote from a primary school principal who said and would tell her teachers that students always know when the teacher doesn't like them that's a flat statement and I've always believed that there these lawless zones because we have laws in society that of by and large most of us actually follow and but there's these lawless owns like schools like work and of course now rental housing is a huge problem so then I want to go to the place where when we see kids of any age torturing animals we take no because pathologically this is a sign of a possible future serial killer and of course in the criminal code it does include you know cruelty to animals so here comes my question why is bullying yeah like why is it not considered in any of these places schools work rental housing wherever you may come across bullying of any kind why he isn't it considered like criminal harassment criminal slander assault and battery and over time of course why isn't it a hate crime you know and so I will take my answer off the air thanks all right great questions Lynn are done yeah thank you you certainly were not so great points and I don't have a concise answer other than the one I speculate about this book I would Richard I talked about earlier is that I think that a large number of people in authority figures were either police at one time themselves or were popular kids and it made out pretty well this is people that are that are rich and successful well this is the week of this this is been good to them so that if the social hierarchy was good to them database see no reason to go against it and I think I think it's this this in in a thing in people unfortunately and it whether they're you know it's just because they're an actual blue like the people that Michael talked about that would even look at the video it's the same kind of thing we see in schools where they will look at the examples where they will look at video so and it it's a complex situation but I think the only conclusion I can draw is that they're a lot of believes in positions of power or people who admire police right in and we as a society review review we reward them for their behavior don't way absolutely and they're they're considered there's a there's a thin line again between that just outright bullies and winners you know these their win because you know the face of bowling is we we we we don't often discourage I talk a lot about again in sports coaches cheat their quotes about you're not cheating you're not trying things like that is it it's it's a good sportsmanship is not respected as long as you win is is for Marty said wings and everything it's the only thing and that was the greatest coach maybe in history so I think there's a lot of people that go by that credo and there's nothing like winning let's say hi to Jack is in California jacket morning welcome to coast to coast for taking my call I agree with your guests tonight I was an only child and the first time that I was exposed to violence was being in school and you were just talking about sports I want to know your opinion on what people idolizing these UFC fighting is doing for kids and bullying excellent point Jack thank you don what you make of the ultimate fighting absolutely and I I I I used to say that I the only reason I thought boxing had was not outlawed at some point was because so many minorities real successful at it and and we're making money in the best ones that I thought maybe political correctness they wouldn't do that but USC yes I would be a much more extreme version a I don't know how anybody can watch it I I I I don't but there's a lot of people that like you know the hockey fan but there's a there's a segment of the public that loves to fight for that I've never understood that I don't like watching fights and that's not necessarily bully that's not bowling not good but it's it's it's it's again it's it's a it's they like the fighting I mean people like finance I mean I've I've heard you know yeah you know they're very ESPN reporter so I love watching people get hit in the face and stuff I don't understand I don't like it I well I did watch boxing when I was young and it but some point I realized what why am I watching this I I you know I don't I don't understand that it's what it's like but it's I think it goes back to you know tell antiquity when the people in the Roman Coliseum you know watch Christians being thrown to the lions right again that's sociopathic behavior and there was a lot of that in the Roman Empire certainly let's say hi to James in Rochester New York James on the wildcard line good morning and welcome to coast good morning thank you quick well maybe a quick question you did a lot of research I was wondering if you did any research maybe outside the United States for example like hockey if you maybe in Canada or yes Germany or France or any other country maybe do some research on bowling or things like that nature me with kids or even American kid might be gone to play hockey in Canada how he was treated things like that and and if you see like severe hazing or bowling with that bring the people together closer together with more severe hazing actually if he's found any studies with that for example like securities and things like that and would have also be associated with the military well that is I I did for them in some cases specially in the U. K. and Canada because their systems are school systems and then work places are very similar to ours it is prevalent in those countries most of my cases there are from America but it does.

"What do you do with that? How did you get to rage? I didn't realize you were boiling already. Your someone who is in control of your emotions you do not. Oh I I'm in control of its because I can't afford not to be in control control of its because I know what happens if I get angry. You can't afford to get angry. And so what I have to do is focus on the science focus on the research. Focus on the kind of work that I can do in the organizations. I work with to see if I can make a difference without making me the focus because I know that when I'm the focus people can use me as a distraction so the work that I do tends to be in the background at tens nowadays not necessarily be beat me berating somebody from a pulpit or writing a an incendiary head but rather working inside. I'd government inside organizations to try and make change but putting my energy sources this this well of gently swirling McNamara. John I know people like to Come at you by saying you're too outspoken. For someone who wasn't that good at basketball used the fame and basketball to become an arrogant gas bag who opined on everything that you weren't really good at basketball but you made it to the top one percent of the one percent to play professional basketball and I don't think people have any earthly idea how hard that was coming from where you were coming from the year that I certainly began in the NBA in ninety-five was near where where they were just so a tiny number of foreign players and they were eastern European for the most part Petra in a vacuum people have got ilk And I was a fat bookish British kid. I mean I've told you this before my my life at that point revolved around consuming cuming books and eating pie. That was that was really where I was. Most comfortable. Sweating was not a fun thing for me and I was people mistake. They think I I I found basketball and I thought here's a route to international fame and money and that was nothing nothing to do with it. I I started basketball because I walked into a gym wearing my rugby kit because it was all I had and I walked into this German and I looked at the faces of the twelve or fifteen people in there and they ran towards me. Grab my mom's I'm was saying he's on our team they. They framed every terrible. Thing I did and everybody knows what it's like to be a total novice unable to catch the ball unable to get within six feet of the basket. Not a clue about what you're supposed to be doing on the floor tactically and every mistake. I made they framed as a pathway to my future greatness an I just knew as these people looked at me and all I could see reflected in their faces. Aces was my potential. I just knew I would never leave the space that I needed to find a way to stay in this space as long as possible. And that's why I wanted to play in the NBA. Because I thought if a SMELLY JIM in some random part of the north of England I if I could find in this space my potential. I'll how amazing might be if I could go to the home of basketball whether it's the best coaches and big gyms that that experience would be magnified a thousand times and that's what made me WanNa play in the NBA didn't your initial backboard Wasn't it against a wall so God so usually in my ankles so many times so many times you go for a layup one of your feet would be on the wall. The other of your feet would be like in the crux of the of the walls of the floor. And and it would just be a regular part of our of our sessions where you know at six or ten minute intervals. Somebody's gone in for contested layup. Somebody comes down down in the crack in the ice that crooks in the wall and his twisted ankle and we're just gonNA take a breather and they walk it off and then we'd go again again but it was partly because because England and really have basketball right. That's how that's it's almost. It seems like we're speaking of ancient primitive times but that's why it was. The basket was against the wall because nobody playing new any better. Oh yeah well. The thing with with with dusk is nobody played. It was super expensive ends. If to get the the proper backboard so very often they were pieces of plywood with with netball hoops and netball hoops are smaller Half the size they a- basketball only just goes through them. I played on one of those for the first six months of my career I certainly have had a home. I had a netball hoop. That's what I practiced on. It had no backboard. Basketball is not was not a part of our infrastructure infrastructure. It is much more now in the UK but But the boys still not particularly evolved but back then it was it was like a tiny cabal of people. You you would you. Would you would know once you play for you. You've pretty much everybody in the country who played basketball. That's how small it was. And so how would you explain into people how how difficult it was to go from that. How bad you were at the beginning? You didn't pick up a basketball too late right. Yep Seventeen years old. I picked picked up a basketball. That whole experience of meeting. Those people was when I was seventeen. I play for one year in the UK. I was very fortunate to have a coach who sadly sadly he passed away. This year. a guy called Dave Mcclain. Who who who told me I had to go because there was nothing more that I could learn in the UK? Hey and that's when I I. That's when I made that that venture to go to America and I did that by writing to American high schools by I found a book from the Fulbright Commission which is an organization that facilitates international exchange. And it had this of high schools in it an I simply found the spoke and went through and put a pin every once in a while in a page until I had about three thousand names of schools and I wrote to the coaches of those schools and invited myself onto their teams. I mean the the letter was not nuanced and I'm embarrassed about it now. But essentially he said dear coach whatever. Your name is My Name's John H E. I'm six foot nine black in English And I would like to play for your team If this is of interest to you please get in touch. Six nine is of interest the sixty s the six nine and the black. I thought both would be of interest. I thought this is. These are key pieces in English. You throw in the English. I'm not sure what you were trying to accomplish there. Well I just didn't want them to to to have some idea that perhaps it was an An American already knew the sport and it was a ex-pat family on a on a on a military base or something I wanted them to realize no. No Raw English equals equals. I'm terrible right now. That was really the key and I and I sent off three thousand letters because this was before email and I got three. Replies one from a famous School in New Jersey which I will always remember because it says that they sent me a letter back saying we of the winningest inist team in the history of New Jersey. We don't need foreign talent and I'm always amazed by that the fact that they wrote back. That is now that they wrote back. But not just to put you in your place with a go. bleep yourself is amazingly cruel. It's amazing league rule. What does anybody WANNA? Why I'm pompous? It is that email that let let the sorry that caused it because I remember reading that and thinking well. I don't want to go to this school anyway. I'd winningest is not a word. Why did you why did you take time to write? That and I mean you took the time to write me back. Just write me back in that same. Do what the other two thousand nine hundred odd did an ignore this as some nonsense but instead you want to tell me that you're the winningest school. Not a word anyway so and then I got a letter from to dig up. There is nobody who does not realize this already. But I'm a principal Dick that's important And then I got got a letter from a school in Toledo Ohio and and I was back actually. I was back this year to see my school corps get named after coach at Hainkel in Toledo Ohio and he was the one who who kind of really accelerated my development. He understood very clearly that I had one year to to go from being abjectly terrible to being good enough to get a scholarship and he and his assistant coach Michael but fell Haber. They dedicated themselves and forced me to get dedicate myself To becoming the kind of flat who get a scholarship remarkable this the thing about success. It's it's it's all in them a new show it's in the mundane my success in my willingness to write three thousand letters knowing that a thousand wouldn't do it my my success S. is knowing that I'm never going to be the best at doing everything but I'm tough to be going left. I can't do much else but I was tough to be going going left. I just that that minutia is what gets it done. Did you give me the third letter. Did you tell us what the third letter was that you got there. The first ones memorable the second was memorable. What was the third one the third? Let's it was a school in Virginia And it's only memorable because I did not go. Oh there because my mother wouldn't let me because it was Virginia. My mother had had a white woman married to a black man in Boston in in the sixties And she would not let me go to Virginia. She was afraid. Wow so you had had the scholarship offer if it if the other one doesn't come through that would have been your only opportunity and your mom wouldn't let you she wouldn't have let you go chase your dream Not In Virginia That's interesting I did not know that I did know the story though involving your mother and I've reminisced over the years with you about this because of how it hit me when you told me I found I found the words bit haunting and sad Because you told me that on her deathbed she said to you after that that life that she lived she said I. I have not lived a fun life but I have lived a full life. Yeah Yeah I that it doesn't haunt me. It's aspirational for me. I need my life to be fun and I want to be clear. I don't think she was talking about never having moments of joy. I don't think it's rose tinted glasses to say that. I know that her children as we grow up my two sisters and myself. Oh for what. We're part episodically. If at least of moments of joy from my mother I know her friendships. with with colleagues and and her friends throughout her life were joyful but she has incredibly tough life and I and I think that colored the equation for her. This is the woman who fought in the Biafran war this this woman who jumped out of planes and eight grubs in the jungle in order to five and was on the losing side of a wall where a massive swathe of ethnic cleansing took place so there was nothing surprising when she said to me before she passed passed away that her life hadn't been fun to say but what was reassuring to know that what was important to her is that it was full and when she set that would I knew she meant purpose meaning value that she'd done something that made a difference. An void is she. At what time did you feel the most sense of purpose. Now I continue to it. It rises it. It continues to rise every day. You see something else and if you really apply in your brain and under willing to add a little bit of effort you realize that there are some things you content packed and to focus on them and and and try and be a Hashtag warrior with them has only a minimal impact and then there are some things that you really can make a difference in so I realized there stuff going on in sports that is really damaging and you and I have talked about the Penn state debacle The thing that really wounded clearly my relationship with with not with Penn state as as an entity but with with other Penn staters the dusky debacle. But even before that I was aware that there are non optimal things going on in sport. And now I'm in a position to do something about that because I can join in this in this country. We have a different in a parliamentary system..
