J.P. Mac Isaac Tells Us What He Found on Hunter Biden's Laptop
"Us now is John Paul mcisaac, John, welcome to the program. Thanks for having me on the show. So John, tell us the story for those people that haven't heard. How did you come across Hunter Biden's laptop? Well, on April 12th, 2019, hunter Biden came into my shop with three liquid damage laptops. I was able to check in one, two, I left with him. That one laptop when I checked it in and performed a data recovery. That's when he came in for it. He didn't come in for a repair. He came in for a data recovery. So I was kind of forced to recover the data manually recovered, verify it. That's what I realized that there was a lot of homemade porn and drug use. But I also saw some other documents that were kind of a concern. It showed a lot of exchange. And the exchange of a lot of money and then ultimately I would discover that that was a lot of money in exchange for access to the office of the vice president. Now, there are some speculation that on the laptop there was illegal forms of pornography. Can you speak to that? You know, I've never felt really comfortable about talking about the actual contents of the laptop with anybody other than people of authority and the authorities. I can say that the 80,000 images of CP that were reported to be on the laptop, that's false. There is some, there's some disturbing images that are revolving family members, and I'll just leave it at that. Okay,

James Carafano and Sebastian Discuss the Wisdom of Margaret Thatcher
"We were the first country. To attempt and to succeed in rolling back the frontiers of socialism, which is the first cousin to come in. No one else tried it. We were the first to do it. I remember some politicians saying, well, what's your very careful misses Thatcher? To see if you're succeed, we did. I just played that because my guests looked at that clip. We had in the show them and just said, can we have some more of that DNA? The iron lady. The woman who took the UK from literal piles of trash, you know, winter of discontent with the refuge piled up with the coal miners on strike. The defeating, the Argentinian junta in the Falklands, and along with Ronald Reagan and bless his St. John, Paul the second defeating the communist threat in Eastern Europe. And I think it's appetite to play it because I do believe, is there not a Thatcher center at the heritage foundation. No, it's not 8th acid center. It's the only Thatcher center that she would allow. To be named after her so it's the Margaret Thatcher center for freedom. That's the only one in the world. And she actually provided the initial endowment.

"There's always reasons to be demoralized and to want to give up and to be discouraged. But somebody like John Paul the second, we look over at his example and we realize him as many reasons there are to be demoralized. There's even more reasons to have confidence in the work that God is doing in us and what God can bring to completion, the good work that he has begun. And when we cooperate with it, when we have confidence in that when we believe in it, it really does make a difference in the world. People's lives really are touched. Miracles really can and do happen. And the greatest of those miracles being the conversion of those we love. John Paul the seng gives us hope in the face of all those things that can be so discouraging. He reminds us that God's love is greater. Pope Benedict XVI he said at the funeral mass for John Paul the second, he said that in John Paul the second was kind of a sign for us that the mystery of evil, the mystery of human misery, has a limit, and that limit is the limitlessness of God's mercy, and John Paul the second now from heaven is an important advocate for us of that divine mercy. So that the more we see evil, the more cause we have to believe in the greatness of God's love and his power to overcome evil. What do you suppose it was like? This is going to seem like maybe even a silly question, Anthony. But what do you suppose it was like for him to see and to experience that communion of saints and in particular that exchange of love with a little French nun from Dijon? Well, we can only imagine, you know, and whatever we imagine that encounter with the lord and with all his angels and saints was so much more and will be the same for us so much more if we persevere in the good work goddess begun in us. His last words were that among his last words before his death, he spoke about wanting to go home to the house of the father. Whoever he met has he arrived in the father's house. His he arrived in his heavenly homeland. The true country where we belong for here we are only pilgrims. When the pilgrim Pope finally came home, all those angels and saints, including the lesser Elizabeth of the Trinity and other saints like tres of Charles and brother Adam, Mother Teresa, a padre pio, saint he knew whom he met. That homecoming that awaits us that he, he is now tasted. There's a joy in it in a fullness in it where your heart can finally rest in the joy that you'd always hope for you discover is completely surpassed. It's the joy of being being in the bosom of the father being held by the father. It's the joy of having Jesus look you in the eyes and tell you, will done faithful servant. He knows that joy now, and he longs for us to share it with him. He longs to greet us when we come into our heavenly homeland, and so he prays for us praised for us that we might know that joy to. How wonderful. Thank you so much, Anthony. Thank you and thanks for this opportunity. And thank you John Paul the second and St. John the 23rd were counting on your prayers. Amen. Amen. Thank you.

What's Next for the UK After Johnson Resignation?
"No, mister secretary, you spent some time in the United Kingdom in the run up to the announcement by prime minister Johnson that he will be standing down. And the launch of the UK leadership election. Now, the prime minister of the United Kingdom matters a great deal to the United States. And you've known a lot of their foreign secretaries, your counterpart when you're at the CIA at M 6. You know, a lot of these people, what do you make of the needs of Great Britain in their next prime minister? Toughness resolve. Candor. Most of all candor to the people of the United Kingdom telling them that this is a tough honorary world out there that they are an important player. And now that they are no longer part of Europe, they need to step up and continue the kind of leadership that they had when president Reagan and Margaret Thatcher and Pope John Paul two worked so closely together. I was there. I was in London for a three or four days. Just before prime minister Johnson stepped down. And I saw a great generation of next conservative leaders from Tory party. Not every Tory is a conservative, but every conservative is a Tory and I think they will find a good leader who moves the country forward in a way that engages in the world economically and lets lending continue to be a massive, important, massively important financial center, but provides a level of understanding for other European nations about this is the way forward.
Conservatism Is America's Last Best Hope
"Hello, y'all, Dennis prager here, great to be with you. I am back in Los Angeles. I was in Minneapolis for 24 hours. Exactly to the best of my knowledge. Midnight to midnight. Maybe midnight to 11. 23 hours. Whether it was beautiful, have a very wonderful time with some of the great conservative leaders in the country. I told him something that is important for all of you to hear. The United States is once again alone. In fighting the left. I say once again because very often the United States has led, for example, in the fight against communism, we weren't alone, Margaret Thatcher was phenomenal. In Poland was phenomenal. The Pope, John Paul the second, was it John Paul the second or John the 23rd. His John Paul the second year. And so I acknowledge that there have been others, but at this time, we are largely alone, the most vigorous, no comparable opposition to left wing tyranny, like there is in the United States, and it's driving them crazy. They have every reason to expect that they will roll over everyone. If you own the Senate, you own the house, you own the presidency, you own colleges, you own high schools, you won't elementary schools, you own virtually every major. All major mainstream media and virtually every major medium. You own every elite profession like medicine. You have very good reason to be confident that you will be spectacularly powerful. And they are spectacularly powerful, but they're not fully in charge.
Ronald Reagan's Best Speeches Against Tyranny

Joseph Pearce Reflects on the Life of Pope Benedict XVI
"Talk to you about the life of Benedict, the 16th. By the way, how old is he today? Now, last week, he celebrated 95th birthday. So he's had a long, long arduous life. That's hard for me to believe that he could be 95, my goodness. Now, so let's talk about his life. Obviously, German, his last name, ratzinger, I assume in your book, you go through his life from the beginning. Yeah, basically that the book is a part of the fee and an overview of the legacy. So it's not a conventional biography or Benedict the 16th, but it does tell the story from the beginning from his childhood where of course he grew up as a child under the tyranny of Adolf Hitler and the Third Reich. So he knows what totalitarian secularism is. Because he experienced it firsthand. As did of course St. John Paul the second with his experience of communism and the Nazis are both. So these men know the dangers of the absence of God in human affairs because they experienced it firsthand as young men. And
Why Joseph Pearce Wrote 'Defender of the Faith' on Pope Benedict XVI
"Decidedly literary person and a man of great faith. His name is Joseph pierce. He's been on the program before talking about many books. His books on Chesterton and souls and eats it in so many others. He has a new book out about someone you may have heard of, Benedict the 16th. I think you can tell from the name that he was Pope. Remember, Benedict the 16th, a biography titled defender of the faith by our friend Joseph pierce, Joseph pierce, welcome back. Great to see you. The greatest year again, Eric, it's been some time. Good to see you again. It has. And I just have to say, congratulations on the book. It's a beautiful book. I may not be a Catholic, but I am a Christian and I have been a huge admirer of so many Catholic Christians through the years. Obviously, Chesterton at the top of the list. But Benedict the 16th. Always, in awe of him, his leadership, his intellectual abilities, his fierceness as a defender of the faith. So it seems appropriate to me that you titled the book defender of the faith. What was it that led you, Joseph, to write this biography? Well, like you, Eric, I've been an admire of Benedict XVI for many years since time when he was cardinal ratzinger prior to that. We need to remember that as well as the relatively few years he was poked. He was St. John Paul the second's white hand man for a quarter of a century prior to that. So this man was basically the most powerful man in the church apart from St. John Paul the second for a period of a third of the century. And he's a time I think of a restoration for the church after what we might call the madness and miasma of the modernism of the 1970s where the world where the church or at least certain members of the church were seduced into trying to become like the world to sort of follow the world and you and I both had my chance to turn and Chesterton said we don't want a church that will move with the world. We want to charge that will move the world. And I think this St. John Paul the second and Benedict the 16th moved the world rather than moving with it. And there's a crucial difference. I think you're quite right. And I

"Of due to their own motives which are usually like compelling. Because we're sort of you know the the actions and decisions that we make in life. They all have a lot of reasons behind them. And i think in acknowledging that it just happens to create a very empathetic view of other people. When i write it so when i'm talking about being bullied in middle school by people who were afraid would wanted to fit in people who had their own problems going on. That's not me sort of being kind to them. I think that's just me telling the truth. Which is that people can be horrible to you. But their reasons for doing so could be on. Its stays very empathetic or very understandable B because you're via because they didn't want it to happen to them. Something they were dealing with in their own lives is definitely not me saying like these are good people bad people but they're just people and we all kind of act um in similar ways and of course there's agency involvement or there's some things that can't be forgiven her. Excuse me. i'm not really doing that either. I'm trying to or tree a reality. The way i experienced the world the other people's actions sort of being motivated in the reason why they happen the way they do the reason they articulated where they are that being said there were a lot of pieces in the books. Amy very nervous people to read about Primarily the title chapter the How to come out to your boyfriend long parking lot because that was a very intense prolonged period of my life and i knew that i could just not right about it was fortified years of my life. Spent with this guy doesn't haven't read the book it's a chapter about on my classmates in my broken down a high school where we really didn't have enough books or up deaths in this guy named corey. He was part of this christian youth pulse and he made it his mission to convert me into it and he was very persistent about it up to the point rows. Okay fine with taps in conversations about religion. let's talk about it in over the course of talking about it. Not only did i sort of fall in love but also he sort of fell out with the church. So was a tug of war but also Over time we started getting physical. We started being romantic. A little bit. And i was so terrified for him to read it because i was like. He's gonna think exposed him or he's going to think that i was untying or that. I'm spilling his secrets. And then yesterday. I get a text from him in my heart just stops some like no he read a what is he going to say. And so with dread. I open it up and i read it in hebrew every like that chapter about me. Remember when we used to check off together a ha- cartoon you fool So i had no reason to be nervous that whole time but it was really eating my heart and then he was just like yeah pretty good. I mean i'm relieved. But also i have so many much. He literally calls me bro in it which i was disliked. There's just no way i like. It's sort of bits but but still like just. Wow okay i those who haven't read the book yet. You can sit with that information and very differently than i processed it and. I'm so glad you chose that as the subtitle for the book because it is such a pivotal moment in in the it's a it's a. It's a beautifully written moment and that fat answer to that is how i want to remind everybody that at some point. I'm going to switch to questions from the audience so please leave your questions where it says. Qa not in the chapel where it says a and i will get two questions So do not be shy. So what i get a lot when i talk about being vice calm about technology and it's usually very blanket. Statement of like is technology. Good or bad for dating or four brains. And when i'm always like well there's some good some bad but there's obviously no clear answer to that but i found myself asking that question a little bit because you have an age difference enough that some of your so many of your formative experiences include technology that i mean you know the negative of that is that i had so many gay friends would no community online because there wasn't online right length. They only had like three people to look at that. Was it on the other hand. There was new instagram. There was no cell phone photo. There was no you know you talk about the validation that the book starts with us idea of sort of the the attention you can get online and i. I sort of wonder when you're asked that very general question about your relationship to technology advice and sort of what it can do to a person like you know. What did you think about with that while writing the book and and even in your column just you know it. It came up a lot for me as something to go with. That is that is very different and has as even now so much more different for much younger people. yeah Ola pop is definitely a product of the internet in brander is itself a fascinating technology inasmuch as it exists around so much of the world and you can sort of through this columbine push through. The app connected me with equal in countries and cultures that i have had zero contact with my life Which was wild to think about. Because it's just like wow someone grinder in like india could read my column in asked me a question. And that is such a wild exchange to take place in the media landscape and i kinda come from generation. Where like. I just can't truly remember what life was like what the internet is just always sort of around and the technology has only been refined over time and so to me. It's one of those things where like if it was happening. When you're editors feels like that's what normal is and so it makes perfect sense to me that over time. Our phones getting faster. Internet keeps getting better at keeping more sites In our brains or discontinuing to rob as a process that it's it's so hard. Because obviously i wouldn't have any of the things that are not wasn't for technology Career sort of Resting on the idea that there was an internet publish on because meeting into a form of publishing. I always knew a tough road even with the internet. Because i was just like you know i wasn't born into connections. They wasn't able to go to an internship on the coasts. Anything like that. So i was like. How do i find my way in. And it was very much through social media. It was through refining a voice that i could use and writing on topics that remedial available to me and think that those two things have really colored this book and a lot of my work but at the same time Ice spoke with a lot with many aspects technologies social media being the primary one. Because it's just like sometimes. I worry that i negotiate too much of my work with really bad face. Critics that exists in social media. Who maybe don't even have a face or a name. Because i'm just become very accustomed this idea that there's this rampant culture of happening on the internet where it's just like people can just be horrible to you and you have very little to no recourse in the something like that. And it's it's terrifying. So i think like you said there's just no easy answers there when it comes technology but when it comes to my little piece of the puzzle. I do think that. I have a really interesting life. That's been shaped by really unique sort of relationship to the internet technology and social media. Partly i wanted to allow them spoke to put it out. They're not on the show. People wiggins wildlife that. I've run out world due to being on the internet. No it's it's it's so interesting on. I want to talk about what you don't share. Because you do agree having this adult context of a lot of things from of you know portraits of family and even in your column yard so generous with saying you know. I think everybody worries as right. Writer like people care about me and if you ever wonder i desperately care about you like the the more you give me a view the more i love the right there is a a you know. It's a process to figure out your own boundaries. And has that something that's has evolved over time you know just your comfort level. I've had become very keenly aware. That when i'm on the page i can definitely be over share in as much as i really. Don't care that much if i'm talking about something vulnerable or deeply intense emotionally for me because if i'm writing about it sort of means that i've settled on my narratives about like not one of those writers who admire lot who use writing as a tool for illuminating in understanding. Something that happened to that. I know some people who in the process of writing through inexperienced. They had kind of gain new understanding of that experienced ten of us. It as therapy in a way they sort of work it out on the page. If i'm writing about something. I tend to think of it very much like i know what i wanna make to have a very specific shape in my head for how i want this to feel in looks and then it just sort of go about doing it because it's materials me that way That being said if. I'm not reading about something that means. It is too much active. Living thing in my brain and sawyer him to avoid those. Until i have figured out a way to think about it makes need deal okay about it And it really lends itself to this book because this book is very much out like John for these really intense moments in my life and here i would like to ten of reconfigure them or reshape. Them in how you could do that with some of your own stories that you tell yourself. It's very much a book about s- narratives in how we live in the house. Humans just need narrative as a tool for understanding ourselves in the world around us So yeah there's a whole lot. That i'm just not ready to write.

There's one right there on campus surrounded by student housing student apartment buildings.

"Did still. They allow us to discover in his actions shrouded in silence as they are an aura of deep contemplation. Joseph was in daily contact with the mystery hidden from ages past and which dwelt under his roof. This explains for example. Why saint theresa of jesus the great reformer of the carmelites promoted the renewal of veneration to saint joseph in western christianity. The total sacrifice. Joseph surrendered his whole existence to the demands of the messiahs coming into his home becomes understandable. Only in the light of his profound interior life it was from this interior life that very singular commands and constellations came bringing him also the logic and strength that belong to simple and clear souls and giving him the power of making great decisions such as the decision to put his liberty immediately at the disposition of the divine designs to make over to them his legitimate human calling his conjugal happiness to accept the conditions the responsibility and the burden of a family but through an incomparable virginal love to renounce that natural conjugal love. That is the foundation and nourishment of the family. This mission to god this readiness of will to dedicate oneself to all that serves. Him is really nothing less than that. Exercise of devotion which constitutes one expression of the virtue of religion the communion of life between joseph and jesus leads us to consider once again the mystery of the incarnation precisely in reference to the humanity of jesus as the efficacious instrument of his divinity for the purpose of sanctifying man by virtue of his divinity. Christ's human actions were some vic for us causing grace within us by merit or by a certain efficacy. Among those actions. The gospel writers highlight those have to do with the paschal mystery. But they also underscored the importance of physical contact with jesus for healing and the influence jesus exercised upon john the baptist.

"The oft repeated formula this happened so that there might be fulfilled in reference to a particular event in the old testament serves to emphasize the unity and continuity of the plan which is fulfilled in christ with the incarnation. The promises and figures of the old testament become reality places persons events and writes interrelate according to precise divine commands communicated by angels and received by creatures who are particularly sensitive to the voice of god. Mary is the lord's humble servant prepared from eternity for the task of being the mother of god. Joseph is the one whom god chose to be the overseer of the lord's birth the one who has the responsibility to look after the son of god or deigned entry into the world and accordance with divine dispositions in human laws all of the so-called private or hidden life jesus is entrusted to joseph's guardianship the census journeying to bethlehem for the census in obedience to the orders of legitimate authority. Joseph fulfilled for the child the significant task of officially inserting the name jesus son of joseph of nazareth in the registry of the roman empire. This registration clearly shows that jesus belongs to the human race as a man among men the citizen of this world subject to laws and civil institutions but also savior of the world. Origin gives a good description of the theological significance by no means marginal of this historical fact since the first census of the whole world took place under caesar augustus and among all the others joseph to went to registered together with mary. His wife who was with child. And since jesus was born before the census was completed to the person who makes a careful examination it will appear that a kind of mystery is expressed in the fact that at the time when all people in the world presented themselves to be counted christ to should be counted by being registered with everyone. He could sanctify everyone inscribed with the whole world and the census. He offered to the world communion with.

Through christ the word made flesh in the holy spirit and become sharers in the divine nature together with mary. Joseph is the first guardian of this divine mystery together with mary and in relation to mary. He shares in this final phase of god's self revelation in christ and he does so from the very beginning looking at the gospel. Tanks of both matthew and luke one can also say that joseph is the first to share the faith of the mother of god and in doing so. He supports his spouse in the faith of divine annunciation. He is also the first to be placed by god on the path of mary's pilgrimage of faith it is a path along which especially at the time of calvary and pentecost. Mary will precede. In a perfect way.
