Krystle Matthews Wins SC Primary Runoff Despite Crazy Leaked Call
"Support. James O'Keefe hits home run after home run, and he recently has an amazing one from his project veritas action as well, and yesterday I think was his birthday. James, welcome back to Charlie Kirk show. Great to be with you, Charlie. What a big story this isn't South Carolina. Tell us all about it. Well, this is a democratic candidate for the United States Senate, running in the primary, the primary was last night, June 28th, which is also my 38th birthday, so quite a bit. It's also Elon Musk's birthday, by the way, June 28th is quite a day. And this is the crystal Matthews using racially charged language while encouraging illicit campaign tactics. She was caught on a, in a she was talking to someone inside of a jail. And it was a recorded line and a whistleblower provided this to us. Some of these quotes are pretty incendiary. This is the candidate. And by the way, she won last night. So now she's going to face Tim Scott. The South Carolina U.S. senator in the general election. She said, quote, where's my dope money, my duffel bag boys? Give me that dope money. Honestly, and I'm an N word at heart. I love black people. We need folks that can wear black at night and take down their effing yard signs. I mean, just this is just some of the most shocking things you'll over here. Now, just this week, yesterday, the house legislator in South Carolina has put together an ethics committee to investigate this woman who has just won last night the primary in South Carolina. And a lot more to say, but that's the
Conservatives Won the Roe Narrative War Thanks to Drew Hernandez
"Won the narrative war that we were supposed to lose on Friday Saturday Sunday Monday is because your footage. And by the way, this is not just speculation drew. So we were told by everybody the following. Rove versus wade comes down and it's going to hurt our midterm chances. You heard something similar to that, right? Well, a generic congressional ballot before versus after roe versus wade, where on June 21st, Republicans were leading four on the generic ballot, and now we're leading by 5 on the generic ballot. Wow. You know, I think part of that could be the response as well. The violent response to this. I mean, you see this kind of footage. You see the way that these people respond to this type of thing. And I think a lot of pro life organizations that have been putting out a lot of education and media and social media informing the public just exactly what this is and what it looks like. And then you see people, yes, but then the other part is the other part is when you see a picture with a woman who's fully pregnant and she writes on their not yet. Exactly. And it all comes together. I don't think that's persuasive. I mean, a person is come on. I mean, it's not science. It's not science fact. It's evil. Listen, Charlie, when a regular person is like sitting on social media to go to your point and that pops up on their feed, they immediately say to themselves, that is, that's not the side I want to be on. That's right. At all. So you got this cut
Why Drew Hernandez Is Becoming One of the Best Frontline Journalists
"And this is why we're so excited to have you and partner with you and do things, which is this kind of grassroots you frontline journalism. Because it's hard, right? I mean, you get sweaty, you don't get to sit in an air conditioned office, right? And so just talk a little bit about that because you're kind of becoming known as kind of one of the, if not the best front lines journalist where, you know, when the sparks are flying and antifa comes out, drew Hernandez is there, but talk about the hours, talk about the Gritty, gritting the side of it, right? Yeah, I mean, you know, shout out to the team though. The front lines team, they really helped me with booking the flights and getting me where I need to be. The logistics. The logistics, right? But like the actual on the ground when you're on the ground, it's a lot of instincts. You have to know what's coming. You have to know what you need to film at the right time to kind of have to kind of have a feel of the crowd. I mean, it's a difference environment. I mean, I view it kind of like, I don't want it to put it this way, but every kind of arena is like a different level, like a video game. Like that's how I view it. I don't treat it that way because you could get really different challenges. Different challenges, you know what I mean? There's different levels. There's like expert hard, medium, easy. It really is. I mean, for instance, if you go to Portland, you go undercover with antifa. That is probably the hardest thing to do right now is going to cover and get that kind of footage with them. But you go to like a protest somewhere in Arizona where it's not that hard. So you kind of have to what I always encourage people is not everyone can do what I do. I think a lot of people try to. I mean, you can. You can just run out there with a camera and film something, but to consistently keep doing this on like a monthly, weekly basis, it does take an amount of skill. Precision has involved precision because you have to be able to see things. Like when you see people like Savannah Hernandez or Julio Rojas with town call Julio is great. Julio with town hall media or Jorge Ventura with daily college. There's also a lot of these people are extremely talented. They're very talented. They know what they're looking
From the Frontlines to the Clandestine with Drew Hernandez
"I'm joined with the great drew Hernandez, drew, welcome back, man. I want to brag on drew here. Drew flew out to Washington, D.C. and anticipation of the roe V wade ruling. Drew, you kind of camped out there waiting for it and drew got some of the most compelling footage right as the roe versus wade ruling was announced, both positive and negative footage. And you also got into that kind of altercation with one of the guys there in D.C. doing some great front lines reporting. Yeah, Charlie, I mean, I mean, it's a team effort. I know you and I were coordinating on when we should go. And I think the best decision was to just kind of like stake it out and wait because it's a monumental. This is American history. Yes. It's huge. This is something that we didn't want to miss if we did. I think we would have really regretted it. But I was kind of like running some of the numbers. And this is, this is grassroots type of stuff right here. This is definitely God's work moving through us and what we're doing being in the right place at the right time. That's always been my experience. God directs our steps. You always end up in the right place at the right time because God is real and he's leading you. And I think in totality, our entire front lines on the ground just my Twitter account alone, the viewership was 7.5 million crazy. That's just Twitter. Just Twitter, and if we add the Tucker hit that I did, which is obviously our row coverage. That's over 10 million views. And we don't even know the re postings on Instagram and other
Live Reactions on the Ground as Roe v. Wade Is Overturned
"I want to get to drew Hernandez. He's right outside of the Supreme Court building. Please excuse the background noise, but it's important we hear from drew, drew, what is the vibe on the ground right now? You're right outside of the U.S. Supreme Court. Well, Charlie, this is a historic moment in the United States of America worldwide overturning of roe V wade. We were able to capture votes, sides, both reactions in real time. Here on the ground, when it was announced, the second it was announced on the pro life side, there were obvious cheers, jubilation, people just celebrating because of this historic overturning to save the lives of babies, even though it'll go back down to the states. Moving forward is still moving forward for the pro life movement. And for the pro baby movement, but then the other side immediately was figured and erupted into tears where crying, calling the court illegitimate right in front of the Supreme Court. And just moments ago, I don't know if you've seen the video Charlie, I just put it up maybe about 5 minutes ago. Congresswoman AOC did come out here and join the pro abortion protesters and was literally accusing the Supreme Court's decision and the Supreme Court of being illegitimate themselves as sitting U.S. congresswoman out here doing that and calling for people to take to the streets. That clip is going vital right now on Twitter, but we're going to see what happens. Charlie, I know you and I have been talking about the past week and a half. I mean, for a while now that we're going to see probably some violence tonight, we know that James revenge has been threatening a night of rage and night of violence the night of decision like this was to be made. Some antifa accounts on Twitter have already been announcing they're going to be here tonight in front of the Supreme Court at 5 p.m., but I wouldn't even only have eyes on D.C.. I would have eyes on Los Angeles, Seattle, Portland, New York, across the United States, because like I said, this is huge. It's historic. Not only has America been watching Charlie, but the world has been

Update From the Frontlines of the Southern Border With Drew Hernandez
"A new project at turning point USA frontlines with drew Hernandez and drew Hernandez has been a frontline journalist for years, testified in the Kyle rittenhouse trial did a wonderful job. And the whole idea was that we want to go tell the stories as we see it, not through some sort of filter. And drew is bold and he has courage. You are also doing the pro choice stuff recently, all the abortion stuff, right? Yeah, we were at the Arizona state capitol and capturing all the psychopaths. Some people were throwing up signs that said a fetus equals a good snack. It wasn't a troll. I mean, but this is what we do. We just capture the psychos and just basically put up a mirror to who they are. And show the world. You did Kyle rittenhouse, I think, was a free man largely thanks to your testimony and your footage. Also, of course, obviously you did some wonderful work and have been doing some wonderful work. Throughout Texas, you did some interesting work last week, but what happened last night, I think of some of your most noteworthy work recently. So tell us about it. You went down to Yuma. Is that right? So yeah, we were just filming for frontlines, the past couple days down at the southern border, Yuma here in Arizona. It was a little slow because we showed up yesterday during the day and obvious for obvious reasons the heat is rising like crazy here. Hundreds of 105. It's up there, especially down there. And so some of the border patrol agents, they were very nice. They're being really cool, being very joking and funny with us. And they're like, you need to come back around midnight if you want to see something. And I was like, really, and he's like, yeah, midnight. So maybe around 5 in the morning. And so the team and I, Jorge and Turo is with us too with the daily caller. He was helping us out. It's a great reporter. He's a great reporter, put out viral footage as well. You guys need to go follow him at Ventura report on Twitter. We were like, let's just pull a night shift. Let's just do it and see what happens. I love it. So we shifted gears. We were going to film the next day and hopefully try and film something, but we just took the chance. We showed up at midnight and we started to see some apprehensions. I mean, you've been down there, right? You've been down again. I think I've been right to this very sector. Okay, that's it. That's the get into the exact same place. Right near the Native American reservation. Okay. I know precisely where you were. So we were kind of watching the sequence happen, right? So a little further away from the Indian reservation where there's the actual gap in the wall. I know what you're talking about. That's where the runners were all the men are being sent. Sometimes they'll run drugs through there or sometimes that's kind of where the single men will try and get through. But then further down by the Indian reservation, that open part two is where the family units come, where they're just massive

How Parents Can Become Great Teachers With Kirk Cameron
"I mean, a lot of parents say, oh, my kids will become socially awkward. They want, but also other parents say, I can't possibly become a teacher. Talk about how you navigate that through the film and how parents actually they're able to teach more than they think. Yeah. Well, first of all, I'd like to say Charlie that I love teachers and teachers have such an important job. They make a difference in the lives of children and God bless all of the good teachers who are devoting their lives to teaching kids. In fact, my father is a public school teacher and so is my grandmother and my grandfather and teachers have made a great difference in my life. However, as we know in the public school system today, it's not like it was when we went to public school or our parents went to public school. Teachers are not choosing the curriculum. The government is and they've got the good teachers have got their hands tied. So with regard to homeschooling, you don't have to be an advanced physics teacher in order to teach that subject to your kids, you're just, you're the coach. You're the quarterback. There's some things that you can teach. And then there will be other people in the homeschool community in your area, no doubt who are qualified to teach these more advanced subjects that you're not comfortable with. And then of course there are online teachers with PhDs, fantastic curriculums that you can take as part of colleges, universities, private schools. There's even sports programs that you can be involved in, if not within your homeschool community sports leagues, but the schools that are in your community, private schools, and even public schools. A lot of people don't know that. But all of these things are available to you, they are to me and I live in California. So if you live in a state that embraces this more than we do out here, I'm sure your options will be even more
Kirk Cameron Talks About His Latest Film 'The Homeschool Awakening'
"Homeschooling has exploded since the lockdowns. We've seen nearly a doubling in homeschooling and the movement is growing and the public government schools. They are getting very worried about it. A man has a great American patriot, a man that I know has a new documentary about this, called the home school awakening June 13th and 14th in theaters, and that is the brilliant Kirk Cameron Kirk. Welcome to Charlie Kirk show. Hey, Charlie, great to be talking with you, ro. Nice to see you. You too. So tell us about your movie. Well, for the last couple of years, I've been working on this documentary. I'm calling it the homeschool awakening. And there really is a great awakening that's taking place, a parent led movement that was really sparked by the pandemic shutdowns of public schools. Now, homeschooling has been a thing for quite a while. In fact, my wife and I, homeschooled our 6 kids, but the sending of children home from public schools to learn in their bedroom and living room gave parents this front row seats, they saw what their kids were being taught. They were horrified, homeschooling doubled, many of the parents didn't send their kids back to school. They're looking for new options. And now there's this, there's this explosion of parents who are looking for hope, they're looking for options, and I want to give that to them by giving them a front row seat. And being part of the everyday adventures of about 17 different American homeschool families who are on mission to put faith family and freedom back into

"Already buster bleacher tweets for a Tuesday T Jones is up first at T and J 6 two 9 T Jones writes and buster does losing two of three in Baltimore over the weekend foreshadow a tough year in The Bronx or is that just baseball Susan? I think you can draw something out of it. Look, in the Yankees playing against the Orioles, there is a special type of pressure, it feels like for any team playing Baltimore, you know, calling bikinis, talked about that last week. About how the Orioles will effectively potentially determine the winner of the American League. And the Yankees last year, I don't want to use the word struggle because they took what 12 to 7 or 12 out of 19 or 11 out of 19. But it turned out to be the difference in the division because Tampa Bay won 18 out of 19. And when you look at the lineups, it's kind of mind boggling. Wouldn't you say Taylor? Absolutely. It makes me think, I think I put a rundown last night. Do the Yankees have an Orioles problem. I feel like that's gonna be on sports talk radio. They do today. Yeah, they're lined up definitely feel stagnant early in the year. That's for sure. Billy flanagan at Billy Flynn is up next. He writes, and how many games at bats innings pitched or whatever can we stop saying, it's a small sample size. It's too early to tell. We praise the players that start out hot, but give a pass to the players that play poorly to start a season. Well, Billy, we can make a decision as reporters and fans, how much we want to react to, you know, last week we had a lot of fun with Stephen Kwan and his great start to the season, for example, for the guardians. I will tell you front offices kind of look at it as, you know what, we need to see about a week. Excuse me, about a month to 6 weeks of action before we start to determine actions on teens, rosters, lineups, players, that sort of thing. Our guy, Matt at kayaking Smith, quote, tweeted the athletics Dave O'Brien. Here's the tweet from Dave. For those wondering about the argument at the end, ump told Kenley Jansen, he was out of time and couldn't keep warming up, snitch said that was BS because they stopped him coming in to check for sticky substances as they do all closers and he needed to throw a couple more warmup pitches and then Matt writes in integrity of the game is important and the pace of play push is key for the league, but player health should be a priority, right? Shouldn't the league ease these rules, especially with such long bullpen walk distances in some parks. You know, I can do both sides on this. On one hand, yeah, I did what snits and we had the braves the day after that incident happened. And snicker felt like, look, give him a warning, do something different than the way he handled it right from the get go. And on the other hand, the rules of the rules, right? I mean, if the umpires are going to bend rules for one player, what happens the next time he comes up with another player. And the players know the rules. And Kenley does take time to get out of the bullpen. He takes a little bit extra time. So maybe by doing it this way, the next time he'll speed up. But it did feel like in that moment that Bill Miller could have handled a little bit differently. I like that we're analyzing the pace of these guys walks from the bullpen right now. This is awesome. Well, you remember, as an Orioles fan, you remember Lee Smith. Yes, I do. The clothes are of the Orioles who they would put a clock on him and how long it would take and to get from the bullpen to the moon. I think it was sometime like three minutes Taylor, does that sound about right? Yeah. That sounds about right. Damn, that is a long time. Speed it up, guys. Come on, Adam wolf at Adam wolford and writes, and hey guys, buster, in your time covering the Padres, could you have ever imagined the fan support the team is receiving right now, specifically their home opener the other night. Adam I had a great conversation the other day with the owner of the Padres Peter seidler and I said to him, he said, I never could have imagined the support like this. It is a great atmosphere in San Diego. The fans are responding to this team. I think the leadership of the team in terms of marketing the club and they've done a great job and, you know, Peter was very positive. He, of course, the grandson of Walter O'Malley and there's been someone who's done a great job. I think in terms of engaging fans since he took over the Padres. Max Moreno at max Moreno three is up next. He writes in hunter green throws 39 pitches at a hundred miles an hour plus, while awesome to watch, I can't help but think the human arm is just not made to withstand this kind of stress. Maximum with you like these days when you see radar gun ratings like that, you know, part of you is excited and part of you cringes a little bit, I hope he holds up the one thing I would say in watching hunter green throw. There's an ease to it. It's kind of like when the first time you saw her all this chap and throw. He just looks very comfortable throwing it high velocity. Last one for today, PK Steinberg writes in, dug up about two dozen dandelions today. What my GAR gardening above replacement. Yeah, what do you think buster? Yeah, I think it's like a plus 6. I think 18 dandelions a day in April is a pretty good ratio. So if you're doing 24, I think that makes you an all star gardener. That's awesome. I knew you would have a good answer for that. That's bleacher tweets, everyone. Hashtag bleacher tweets on Twitter and please follow rate and review this podcast wherever you're listening to your podcasts. That's it for today, my thanks to Tim, Sarah Sarah and Taylor, have a great day, everybody. Thanks for listening..

"Boy, you know, if the Yankees have to play in Toronto without him, that would be a huge story considering everything that has gone on. Go ahead. Yeah. Another COVID season buster one way or another. I thought we were kind of past it, but this Toronto issue itself makes this a COVID affected season. All right, Jake arita announces yesterday he's retiring from baseball. What's his legacy going to be? Well, he had one of the great Cy Young seasons ever. He had a stretch there buster. I'm going to be close on this from like July until April of the following year where he allowed he hit more home runs free than he allowed to think about that for a second. He was so dominant during that period, it was absurd. You remember those that year buster when he struck everyone out. He didn't walk anybody. He gave up no runs like all the time. It was unbelievable. And to come from Baltimore where he had performed poorly, they questioned all sorts of things about him, including his manhood for him to go out there and be great for that stretch of time and pitch for a World Series champion is pretty cool, but I will remember the day I was in spring training with the Orioles and Brady Anderson, the mischievous Brady Anderson, you know him well, buster said, hey, Jake, Tim's here today. Why don't you show them how you can walk across a room on your hands. So Jane Carey had a guy on his hands, walked across Clubhouse on his hands. I don't think whitey Ford was doing that in the early 60s. I'm not sure I've ever seen a pitcher do that. That was pretty darn impressive. Man. He was. And I got to be there when he threw his no hitter against the Dodgers. We had that game on Sunday Night baseball. That was a fun broadcast and remember seeing his joy after that game. And I remember, you know, as that game is going along after two innings, I told Tom archer because it was a play early in that game. You remember, it was like a chopper hit to the second baseman, and it was scored an error..

"COVID. The candidates protocol is the visitors are not allowed into the country unless they've been vaccinated. Among those Tanner hauck, who's the one who's acknowledged, the one player to this point who's acknowledged that he's not publicly acknowledged that he's not vaccinated. This is going to be an issue all year, Tim. I don't see because the COVID numbers are well, they're not, you know, they're not necessarily spiking, but they're also not going away. And I think all year, the Blue Jays who have all their players vaccinated, all their guys, when they come and go from the United States, they're free to come and go because they're vaccinated. They're going to have competitive advantage against these teams. The Red Sox, you know, anytime they play the blue chase Tanner in Toronto, Tanner out can't be part of that. He's got some of the best stuff on that team. Yeah, imagine being a young guy with his stuff and the Red Sox need him and he can't pitch there. And you know, it's his choice. That's not a good situation, the Red Sox are in. It's a great situation that the Blue Jays are in. But by the way, the blue Jay people will tell you, we don't want to hear about this competitive advantage, okay? We just played in dunedin for two years. We played in Buffalo. We have people dressing under a tent outside the center field fence. So don't tell us about going through hardships. But this is even more of a hardship. If that's what you want to call it, then players are not allowed to come in there. So they either should get vaccinated or this is going to go on the rest of the year. And my guess is this is going to go on for the rest of the year. The Red Sox are not the only team with multiple players who won't be able to play when they go to Toronto. Yeah, and I think the player who's going to draw the most attention on this issue is Aaron judge of the Yankees because he's their best player and he's a leader of their team. He was not vaccinated last year. He tested positive for COVID..
"k. hernandez" Discussed on Baseball Tonight with Buster Olney
"Just another reminder, way off target here, how good the really good teams are and how bad some other teams are. The braves won a couple games in San Diego and then they lost on Sunday Night baseball. They lose the first game of the series against the Dodgers, but there's good stuff on the horizon for them. Ronald lacuna junior starts his minor league rehabilitation assignment now. He's expected to play home games. We're going to next week and then the following week, he's likely returned to the major leagues and Tim. I think based on what I saw in spring training, how good he looked, how confident he seemed to be coming back from that knee injury. I think the impact from Acuna is going to be immediate. And I look at the braves and I know they're kind of slogged along a little bit here. I look at the braves and I'm like, this is a great team that's going to be maybe upper Ashland, we're going to have the Dodgers and the braves at the very top. There was a great stat going into Sunday's game that the braves were number one in baseball and hard contact from their lineup. And their pictures were number one in allowing the least amount of hard contact across the major leagues. All of that, with the return of Ronald lacuna junior, portends of good things to come for them. Absolutely. I mean, they haven't gotten going at all so far other than Matt Olson. I mean, Eddie Rosario last I look was like one for 26. Adam Duval had 38 homers last year when his first 35 at bats and not more without a Homer this year. Danny Swanson has struck out in all 12 games that he's played so far. This is all going to change. Those guys are all going to produce and then they're going to bring in the best player on the team. Now, Acuna junior, I saw him this spring two buster, I watched him take batting practice. It was ridiculous. If you didn't know he was hurt, you would swear he's a 100% healthy. The doctors naturally would not clear him to play. And even if he comes back just as a DH until everything feels right, then that's a tremendous bad to add to that team. And with the way they pitch for the most part this year, there's no reason not to really like where the braves are going to be going this year. Now, you said he's the best player on the team. I tend to think of him as being the best player in baseball. Not for you, where would you have him at this point? Well, I still can't put him ahead of Mike Trout, but let's not forget. Let's not forget what Ronald lacuna junior was doing last year when he got hurt. I mean, it was ridiculous how good he was, and he gets better every time he steps on the field. But I just need to see him play every day in the outfield before I'm going to proclaim anything. And let's face it buster. This is one thing the braves are not very good at right now as their outfield defense. That needs to be sure enough. And that can be done when Acuna junior gets healthy and can play center field right field left field wherever they want them anytime he wants. So give us your line about going to the ballpark every day. Give us that well, this is not exactly revealing, but I've said it a million times and I believe it. I was saying it when I was ten. Every time you go to the ballpark, you might see something that you've never seen before. How many people buster in their professions go to work saying, you know, something might happen today that I've never seen before. Something might happen that hasn't happened in a 120 years. And I'm going to be watching it tonight. To me, that's the ultimate beauty of the game. It's things happen and you go like this. I do this about four times a day every day during the baseball season. That's how beautiful the game is. And we had that the other day in the game between the angels and rangers, bases loaded, Corey Seeger at the plate for Texas, Joe Maddon managing for the angels, and this is what happened. And the.
Toby Harnden Shares a Story From on the Ground in Afghanistan
"You mentioned this story, the prison uprising, Mike spann, a former marine CIA paramilitary. For those who know nothing, give us the story of that incredible event and what that man did. Yeah. It is incredible. And so November 25th, 2001. Two CIA officers walk into this fort called calla jangi, which means literally like fort of war outside mazar I Sharif. Now, backing up a little bit mazarin Sharif had fallen to northern alliance forces, aided by our allies. Our allies aided by the CIA green berets and air force combat controllers and the awesome might have U.S. air power overhead on November 10th. Now, less than a month earlier, Mike spann had been one of 8 CIA officers who landed in the Darius souf valley, aboard two Black Hawk helicopters that had flown in from Kashi Khan about K two, a former Soviet air base that Uzbekistan government had given over to the Americans for this post 9 11 mission. So October 17th, 2001, they land at dropped into the unknown. First Americans behind America. So we are barely barely a month out since 9 11. Yeah. First Americans behind them enemy lines. Now there had been a CIA team called jawbreaker that had landed in the pantry of Ali on September 26th, but that was, you know, relatively speaking safe territory controlled by the northern alliance. But this was enemy territory, Taliban controlled territory. So 8 of them, four of them were paramilitaries, one of those was Mike span. So when paramilitary is somebody who's been seconded, usually from the military and is working in the CIA using their skills for the CIA. Yeah, usually they actually in the CIA sometimes their contractors or people who've been seconded and on some of the other teams that were actually serving members of the Delta force and seals. But the four paramount trees on team alpha were serving CIOs special activities, division. Scott spellman, who was on the cover of the book, he was later became very senior, it was the senior CIA guy on the National Security Council during the Trump administration. He became station chief in Kabul, but then a young officer, but already battle hardened he had been wounded in the battle of Mogadishu in Somalia in 1993. It was a guy called Alex Hernandez, who was the deputy chief, who was a sergeant major, gone full career in special forces and then joined the agency and two case officers, JRC, who was the chief who'd worked with the CIA out of Islamabad in the 1980s against the Soviets for the supply and stinger missiles to the mujahideen and David Tyson who you mentioned at the beginning who was with Mike span on November 25th 2001. So they're in unfriendly territory. This is the Ford of war, walk us through that event. So David was a case officer based in Tashkent and spoke Uzbek almost fluently. And so he's the linguist and the main linguist on the team, although JR, seger also he spoke diary, which was the sort of lingua franca in Afghanistan. But on that day, the team split, there's a big fight, a hundred miles to the east. It expected in Kunduz so the bulk of American forces are there. But the night before 400 Al-Qaeda prisoners had arrived on the eastern edge of mazarin reef to surrender, and it was extremely murky why they were there. They should have been surrendering in Kunduz. And basically, I mean, what I was able to establish almost beyond doubt is that this was a Trojan horse operation. It was a deliberate trap. Yeah, it was a Taliban Al-Qaeda operation to put pretend that for these 400 fighters had surrendered, but in fact they were made up remained armed. They sort of exploited Afghan custom to keep their weapons with them and they were planning an uprising. Because you can have lots of people surrender at once if it's a regular army during the Gulf War, we had thousands of Iraqis surrender at once. When it's irregular fighters, you don't usually get hundreds of them surrendering at the same time. It's a little bit

Charlie and Trial Witness Drew Hernandez React to Rittenhouse Verdict
"We the jury find the defendant, Kyle H rittenhouse, not guilty. As to the 5th count of the information gauge grows cores. We the jury find the defendant Kyle Edward Kyle H rent house not guilty. Members of the jury are these your unanimous verdicts? They are unanimous verdicts. Yeah, that makes me want to cry, bro I mean, I'm getting emotional because being directly involved with this, you one thing I will say is when I was test when I was testifying I don't want to make this about me, but I want people to understand the evil that's involved with this. When I was testifying Charlie on the stand and the prosecution, I don't know if the tape caught this, but when the prosecutors, every time I would say rioter vandal, Luther, anytime I would say the truth, they would just laugh at me and shake their head. And during the middle of that while I was testifying, it just dawned on me like this is this is evil. This is evil because I know what the truth is and these people are laughing at me like I'm lying. When in reality, it's them laughing at the truth. It's inverted. It's backwards. And people need to understand this is the reality of the evil that's in the justice system. And today it's Kyle rittenhouse, but tomorrow it could be you. And that's right. And what Kyle represented was a test of the integrity of our system. Which is our system still one that allows due process, the rule of law, cross examination of witnesses, checks and balances, and some people say no. Some people's our courts are all rigged. They're still a remnant. And that remnant, he happened to get a good judgment. He could have got a university Wisconsin Madison, young radical, right? I mean, absolutely. The judge was

"k. hernandez" Discussed on Serve to Lead | James Strock
"Need to remind people how successful this pattern of Reducing pollution and protecting the environment has in fact really worked how successful. It's been Over the past years and and and stop already with the doom and gloom That you know unless we end capitalism which is not hyperbolic statement You know we can't solve global warming And and that's you know it starts with wait a minute in a you know in the nineteen forties. We already had error in southern california. That was so bad. People thought it was a gas attack from the japanese during the war and it was. It took us a little while. If you're out actually know this weird thing that happens in sky with he and and particulates from combustion and and my goodness who knew and certainly who knew that. A bunch of weird where earth minerals could be assembled into something called the catalytic converter and now this region is in attainment of the goals that we originally sent over the clean air act when there were there was talk about having to depopulate los angeles. Get rid of cars Once we figured out it wasn't the japanese and the gas attack so we have to be a little more humble. I think about what we don't know But also about the importance of continuing to respect all laws including civil rights laws in weighing what the appropriate environmental solutions could be. You know in in during the drought which california's has quite regularly Families are asked to reduce water consumption. Without question our household could most easily deuce water consumption by exporting. Our teenage son would've done it in a heartbeat. That's a ridiculous concept and no one really part about it or suggested but when you think about california climate policy and the she choi- would or a ton of cement imported from a dirtier coal based grid has zero. Ghg it's just a laughably absolutely absurd metric so let's just you know. Let's hold the climate accountability you know rally and call for honest math. Let's start with that and let's go back to a little bit of cost-benefit ranking. What are we going to get right now. Every forest fire season we're emitting krislindahl. Nearly ten million cars of pollution of rehouse gas into the air and we're also by the way strangling people from smoking. Relation and killing. People in fires is our more urgent public health prices. Then getting a handle on fires in california other than covert force. And and so okay. Fine we know. We need to do things differently. We we forested we you know. We cut timber for years and then we just stopped and we didn't do anything really manage for us. And now we gotta get rid of a lot of dead dying trees and yet we can't get our act together to allow those trees to be turned into pellets and burned for power which in europe counts as a zero greenhouse. Gas renewable technology but in california is considered a dirty technology. And that's just a matter of the prejudice and bias of those in environmental leadership positions on climate. Who find the idea of burning a tree even dead tree. it's otherwise than exploded. Caused far more pollution and even death but burning that tree or cutting it down. Even if it's dead is a nightmare just a horror of values based horror and that may be true that data's not environmental stewardship. It's not environmental leadership. And it certainly is counterproductive from a climate perspective We we we simply can't keep pandering to the lowest common denominator in the environmental worlds. That simply say we have to stop raping mother guy. There are too many of us and make a most of us miserable while leaving those wealthy enough to have home generators and solar walls of of batteries With the lights on and everybody else can just go to bed at eight..

"Bike lane which is overwhelmingly going to be occupied by a white male relatively wealthy individual and in fact I i liked by many people like to bike But most bike lanes are used much more often for recreational purposes then as a substitute for the daily trips we all need to make Including you know not just to work getting kids to school and Taking care of doctors appointments and Dealing with elderly relatives all this stuff normally just need to do Becomes almost impossible to do if you don't have a car and And the car has long been targeted by the environmental movement as kind of the root of all evil And various efforts to ban cars locked cars limit car us Have been a stalwart of environmental movement for a long time. The trick though is it turns out. Cars are really really important especially to low income families In order to keep kids in school get to work on time. Go to those. Doctors appointments get healthier food At lower cost in bulk it and and and lower income californians and predominantly communities of color consistently spend their first discretionary dollars getting a car. And you can get to you know. Dozens more times of jobs in a car then trying to ride a bus and Answer in the environmental community is where we should just have more buses and the answer in the nation as well as in california even pre. Kobe is that low income bus. Ridership has plummeted. It continued to plummet during covert emergency They'll always be a place for buses on high traffic urban streets And they never ever ever pencil in Most of california and And they're frankly quite discriminatory to tell folks who and buy a car for three thousand dollars. pre cove it. That would last for another five years. typically a lower emitting You know ten year old Car of You know reliable vintage The last much forever And serve all kinds of needs and yet you know we're telling people to ride the bus or or you know or or ryan bike and you know those bikes cost a couple of grand to so it's just a remarkably willful Rejection of years and years worth of studies for example after the clinton reforms to the welfare program when gingrich was and congress And folks were really concerned about what families who no longer received welfare assistance Would do and how would succeed or not. And it turned out the car. Ownership and use was a huge indicator of a family's ability to you know stand school. Keep a job. Vance and job Maintain housing And yet we have this war on cars regardless of The fact that people most in need of cars often by the way not working. You know in offices or keyboard. Economists having to be physically present that we paid And often working shifts where you know transit services either non existent or almost non-existent These tend to be people of color.

"Ever been with did accept seen. So we'd have excuses anymore. I cannot say laurich. Do that idea. And i did it as a man. A hundred percent men so you can do it so right now looking forward. You're gonna graduate through the. Do they call it graduation ordination or excuse me of course nation. Yes so you also get a degree right. Yeah you get a degree so information we are actually a getting a degree through university of saint thomas so we are in a program with universe sir. Thomas right Because the theology school right of university of saint. Thomas saint mary's seminary so we are actually forming ourselves to get a degree however we had two choices. You could do a master degree in pastoral care or you could get a certificate. Okay your call. Whatever you wanna do. I had to make a conscious decision about time. Did i won the certificate which basically means i will become a deacon and i am officially taken yes or a master where i am deacon board. I could also do other things because they have a master degree. I could have done that because the only record that you need it to have a bachelor's degree so i could have done that. But i made a choice because my own family. The master degree demand demands more time. A choice it. That's what i want. I want to get a certificate just to serve the lord as a deacon and were never once i will go back and get my master degree and their way series. I will then get a masters degree in in the whatever the real need is because now master the could be in the elegy and what you know something specific yes a. Maybe the church needs me about time. I would love to do that. Some type of psychology perhaps crate. Vino something they may say we really need. We have a desperate for this. Would you consider doing a master's degree in that. And i might say yes so. I will get a certificate from the university of saint thomas. So we're going through a curriculum. As i ain't thomas university for the certificate. Okay now let me ask you a question. Because when i was living in the philippines i noticed there weren't deacons in the philippines in venezuela's the same way tamera aren't any deacons. What now. I'd i don't remember knowing any deacon administrator venezuela colombia there my brotherly flare very close to venezuela no. Don't remember that i. It's just a wonderful program to have. We have here in the united states. You ever think of yourself eventually. Becoming a deacon when you first moved to the united states and found out about not at all not at all as i said at first time that when when a deacon mentioned that to me is when i can see that this is something i could do but i think rudy was not the right recent. It was more the active role. Right okay how can. They continue to be so active. Yes But i didn't have an understanding really at that time. What what a deacon was all about I do appreciate it away. How well structured information for each year in the united states and in texas in particular data. Que did well structure on so You know with a lot of sacrifices but a lot of thought behind the program though. Yeah maybe at this point that now i know and understand more i could say okay makes sense makes sense for me back in the days. I did a half an understanding where deacon was about Well let's face it. It is quite recent that we re energize the the echinacea the catholic faith right off the bat against hiking. So that's true. Even those being in the in our tradition since the beginning of the first apostles For a while it was a it had a dark. H if you will but he was not active adult looking forward to your ordination giving the certificate and all of that. What do you look forward to the most serving servant. I think that you know. I heard my my sponsor and the information wants explaining. What a deacon was all about. He said we're experts rushing feet. That's a good way to put it. So i envision myself mean in front of people serving them washing their feet. So what what which means getting close to their needs as possible. They could actually see. Jesus when i am watching their feet So what i'm trying to say rudy's. I'm note after the recognition because if. Nfl washing feet is not good for those that i was listening to me. I may say. I want to be a so. I could be recognized right. They see me out. Blair you ready to be an expert washing feet. If that's why you want you are welcome. So that's what i what. I'm ambition in his. How can they be close to the people to show them. There's always hope. And there's always a loving god. They're waiting for us. That does come standard with padding. Knife have been nothing but fuel you'll or a sainthood because we're we're here is to to become saints. So how can i be part of that journey and helen and they held me so together. We can get to heaven. I you know. I'm excited at this point and other same time so grateful to say lor. Who am i to be cold to become deacon a servant jesus himself what's the best deacon ever get ganea means service he he put himself on the services. Everyone how can they call myself a deacon knowing that my role model is jesus himself saint francis of assisi. look at. that's that saying. It was a deacon so it is the responsibility but he's our responsibility knowing that i don't deserve that. He was god's call. God's will god's mercy and i just need to trust leading he a lord according to your will whatever you want. I'm here for you. i'll do it. The one thing i i wanna. I wanna make sure that that he's clear that i love my fate. I am here. 'cause i love jesus with all my heart and i want to share the treasure. I want people to to get the joy of loving jesus and he's true but we will find so much obstacles to achieve that goal. Because there's a there's a purpose of you know you. You know the devil has a very you know well plan a strategy to to to deviate that attention from you either. Want us to be to be joyful. But i want to be able to be joyful. Wanted people to see jesus right and here. Jesus he my boys but mostly cds in my act in. How do we again. We we go down on our knees and we wish those feats fade and and when we tell them lord and he forgives doesn't matter what you did there's always hope what the advice do you have for somebody who might be considering going into the good question so you know you being.

So they come to us. meaning dino. don't don't care mine who is coordinating debt. By by the way a wonderful. He's an angel. He basically coordinate. I make sure that people that come thrown ready that okay because you have to be ready. Yes to renounce. Do you have to be ready to accept that you need to repent and you are willing to forget so they come to us so we will go there and they'll say okay these are the least. How many can we do today. Depending on how many volunteers we have. We do two or three sessions when we go there so again. Meaning that we had any was wonderful but for my daughter rookie. That's one example that my daughter would say my dad is not here. she is helping the person She she may not have noticed base. But i've heard my daughter talking to her friends and saying you talk to my dad because he held people in imprisonment so he would understand what you're saying. So i know that she knows that i have not been around that often. And she sacrifices and sharing time my time with all this but i'm sure she's proud because she's part of that story so the people in the prison they're prepared for you when you get there. It's not one of those things where you walk in. And they have no idea that you're coming however experienced happened that we go to the chapel And isa isa outside but they were doing some repairs one. Did this happen in a couple of times. We had to go through the gm and through the main person to get to that top. Okay so now. You're surrounded by hundreds of inmates. Yes no tense. Dot is a moment when you realize it's the holy spirit acting i. I was not afraid at all really out all honestly.

"Is not a meeting where you get out. This is exactly what they want. They're gonna scare you today. What did they say to you. Oh they they say for the case specifically because they had young tile. You cannot do this how you going to be able to. You know they bbc agenda work agenda. You have traveled a lot of you. Have a child. You in a writer for this you can you need that. Was the purpose of the meeting to scare you into the purpose. Plant the a lot of doubt saying yes because asa mentioned to you the idea is your call it. He's got to call. Yes and if he's got cold here will take care of it but if it is about you then those those things will scare you out okay. That's your that's your excuse not to do. That's excuse and let's face. it wasn't very valid. Excuse yes i can i can. I better wait So in that meeting we get out of that and we asked ourselves they were they trying to recruit beholding trying to keep people out. Now we understand what the whole purpose was. It was was with with care to make sure that you really you were sure that he was gonna call not yours and you were willing to sacrifice a lot of things because the reality is that these comes with a lot of sacrifices. It is not that. Oh you're going to do this on top of every else whenever you have time. No you need to sacrifice these formation. Stop this is something you have to make the time for. Not doing whatever extra time you have ask correct and in the quality time that you need to put in here is not so much. Say i'm gonna dedicate these two hours per week because a lotta reading is alert. Brain does discerning as a lot of reflection. A you need to put next to. This is a lot of sacrifices because you know Maybe my daughter had an activity school and had to go to a two formation. I remember these. These just came to my mind. That meeting that i mentioned to you first meeting i was not in the formation. He was about to discern and decide what we want. Yes dale the singer was come into houston big fan of that. My wife is a big fan of dale. We bought the best tickets. They were soling ten minutes. We went on line that we go to tickets. You got lucky enough to give those lucky enough to go. Guess what it's on that night in that call is in god saying okay. What do you really want to do so we had we had the choice. You know what s go to that counselor. We're not ready for these in two years. We may decide to go back because we two years are you. Can you can make the decision but we talked about. It said now if it is got to call we cannot say no well. We didn't go to adele's concert and it's so easy to do that. Just say okay. I'm going to go to the concert. You will put this aside for now. Absolutely because again he was not not a big deal with just a meeting to to inform. If if this is what you wanna do. So but of course i mean for us. He was obvious right. Three hundred sixty five days a year. How many times they'll come to houston right and he had to happen that meeting to go to do the economic formation so we had to take it and say in a lord where he and dc serious. We want to do that so after that and with everything we heard in the meeting with said well lord we we're in we're in you are in charge but we're in and then you have your is at a whole year of discerning. Well depends on when the coal happened for you right. In our case it was september. Two thousand and sixteen The feathered that talked to me a meeting a was november. If i'm or october november. Something like that so we had only a few more from the moment. Father talked to me. And i talked to my wife and then the meeting we went to the meeting. Both of us have to go because she has to be on board. Not only on boy. She has to be committed to this from october november onto january. We only have two months because we started formation in january two thousand and seventeen other people how they call the into fifteen or sixteen so they had a full year and one or two meetings to decide. We wanna do that. Oakley class started. We did a half that so again like like the lower saying. I'm not gonna give you time the realism. No i'm going to challenge you. I'm gonna put so mom some temptations gear sometime stations to happen to really test if you already But we did have much time to decide only only a few months okay and then what happened was the next step after the next step is well. You entered the formation s in two years of discerning period Those two years is the the information team. Deacons that would teach classes. Okay and so you're learning but at the same time you've been evaluated in your also await any is what you really want so you have a lot of background check and test and psychological testing in mary task and they will talk to you and both together to make sure that it is your call that you're ready Because it they don't want us they always say your marriage is your main ministry. Yes the the echinacea formation cannot destroy your marriage and if they feel that he say week marriage then they will immediately say. You're not ready for you. Gotta work on your marriage first before you can do this make sense. I say this if you have a strong marriage the information would clue that forever gorilla glue like nothing will separate it but if your marriage is weak the information will be a disaster for that couple because of the sacrifices because that much time you need to spend because the moment that people know that you're in the formation a degan what i'm saying that is going away for six years. They're ready. They wanna talk to you when i only been two month information because we're so much need people are desperate for help. Yes and that's the beauty about the deacon deaconess the horizontal connection if you wanna see a simple way about the that that clergy it is the priest. Vertical connection is the altar connection. A deacon is the horizontal connection with community both have to be together right across. But he's that connection with people because we are parents because we do have works because we are husband so we can relate with the problem with the community very easily. We have teenagers. We have young kids right so we can actually relate to anything that has happened with the community. So there's much need. So what i'm saying is the moment they know that your information all it's going to be like you're the already people coming to you for advice and all of the also from to my wife because she is my my wife so they assume you're ready also the she go to the classes with you as well. She goes to formation the.

"The lord is asking me. Your first main street is at home. Yes as to be hospital to be a dad. Anything else we'll wait. So i had to learn the hard way. You are spread too thin. That's what it wasn't. Yeah and the and the problem is the determination is going to be there to make you feel. You're doing great people. Yes keep doing that. Because you're star. And you'll believe that i believe that. And then he was through the formation by the way thought. Oh this is gonna be the end if you add defamation on top of everything else that i'm doing this is going to be really bad for my family. All it was the opposite. 'cause lord in charge what's going to take care of everything and make sure that your first ministry was going to be intact so once. The academic formation came in at. It really helped a lot really helped you weren't spread as thin is actually i. Now how the oldest support to really say no too many initiative and say their formation is my priority right. Now i keep you know being active as much as i can keep doing unbound here and they on for example a in in my work. I work every other friday off choice. They called nine hundred. Eighty four nine days and you can relate. Yes well that friday off. I never had off. Because i was always booked a session or book a talk with someone book you know helping people. Yes data spending that friday with my wife for example having launch were her strengthening. Your marriage yes. So but but thanks be to god you know i. I learned a lesson. He taught me the lesson and he gave me a wonderful for opportunity to learn that lesson in information to become a deacon to be able to help but at the same time healing. If i can use that word my marriage threatening my marriage and making sure that together we are strong as ever and i can tell you these ready and i was talking to my wife the other day because we have to attend saturday's formation together with never been so close and so good as a couple You know as we've been after which dot whether the echinacea. So i'm i'm forever grateful. That's that's very similar to what deacon ray said when he when he came in how it strengthened his marriage. So you so we talked about. The healing ministry talked about unbound. Is there anything else real connection so there was a group of a group of man that we wished i'd this journey thinks six years ago. An interesting off. A friend of ours lost haste boy. Us five years old through cancer. So i do know another friend of mine. Came to me and say khaderah Help us help us to get back to a faith in an innocent. Why what's their motivation. Here well this random hours who lost the baby. The child he talked to him and said don't wait to be my position to give back to. God don't wait to suffer. What suffering to get back to your fate. So i said okay. Let's do it together but you will. You guys will lead the pack and by the way this is not going to be a sect meaning is not my interpretation or what you would like to hear. We're gonna learn the real catholic church doctrine. We're going to go by the catechism. Oh we're not gonna be emitted interpreting by ourselves and saying where we like to say. No we're going to learn the real church. And i'm very proud to say that most of those guys are now serving steen. That's all very active. Because they all you know we're committed to learn the real faith into put it in practice so that was taken a of time because know every other monday we met with the men and then of they said we want our spouses to also delays. Help in this post as well. It was the monday as well that i had to do with the spouses. Plus again the that had in the in a in a. I mentioned to you that i had that rosary weekly basis so i do have a weekly rose ray with my family and friends that reconnect virtually and have been doing that. Since that kid in ill yes wished out of the rosary and we have predicted that rosary. So every single thirsty you know in the last six years we've been meeting element. Put it this way. Go to a point. Where he that. I needed not a commitment. I need so. I could be in day or this side of the world with twelve thirteen hours difference and i will call because it is. I need is like if i if like for me. Oh i'm gonna decide. I'm not going to eat today right. Yeah the same thing. I cannot keep that so it was the real connection. A was rosaries. A was the unbound who was the healing ministry and on top of that it was talking to be because reality has this or marching eat. And when you start being deface right because you are rating or you are talking or you. Are you know in a session here. And they were. You found the the church when you are in the healing ministry people will come to you and then so what do you say. Oh you know what. I'm too busy thought on hold. Well i was not ready to say no other time. I mentioned you're saying yes yes to everyone but my house but my family. I had no for my family but not for all this. So how do you. How can people look into this. This group that you were talking about with the husband's well you know we have. Is it open. It is open for anyone but at the moment with the pandemic is being we've been we've been having the stations now got often. We never made it as an ministry because we do believe there are many minister scheme independent We've talked eventually we while ago with father. Deacon randy see how we can actually make an official group But it was about a time where the information they told me you need to put things on hold. We've been very careful not to out to do too much things. That's why at the moment. I think it is a need for something like that. Yes because the purpose of real connection is to for people to get back to their roots right. Nah those catholics. That they have not even been sunday. Catholics catholic because were baptized. But they're being ten years. Oh the last time they came to mass. Or they're like ceo's christmas and easter only lucky. There will be those but we have a lot of men a hurry successful man you know that are not in our church anymore and they're catholic so i do definitely feel. There's a need out there for that and eventually the lore will Will make sure that we we get we get there okay. So this was just a group of guys that got together and wanted to learn a little more bats. That's awesome so you that approach. You thought you were going to be light and they told you. Oh we think you're good for the deanna. So what happened next then. Then i talked to my wife and we we discerned and you thought she was going to say it's was completely sure she was going gonna say you're crazy. You're you're you're the divorce she said no. She said we're going to do it. So what happened next as you go to a meeting with the and information is a meeting where they will explain what is all about. And i'm sure that the rican ray mentioned this is not an easy. Meeting.

"I don't mind to talk about my church my faith but let's go back to the evidence and the facts. I know exactly what you're saying. I'm going to open that letter for you. Uh-huh i've been able to review the letter together and then you can ask me any question. Look actual source and not the spin the because what they were referring these any interpretation that someone made yes. I can give this letter to my daughter. She will have a different interpretation. That founded that myself you a great opportunity to educate each other What happened after that. They came to me with real question. I really wanna learn. Why the catholic church does this. Yeah why the position on and you can imagine almost charlie divorce. Nfl all those problems that we deal nowadays and referred to the catechism i said is whether says and then of course we can't. We had that debate about well. But that's not what i experienced. I saw a pristine okay but this is where the catholic church says this. Do i accept that. They are about practices. Absolutely i am the first one saying. I'm i failed. I don. i've made a mistake. We all feel we all fail less used. The evidence is to have that educated the conversation it was wonderful to have the opportunity to those people that are the beginning. Wanted to you know. Bring you down and humiliate you. They were next to you. Wanted to learn so they first came to try to challenge you trying to say okay. I'm gonna put this guy in a in a spot where he can't answer me. I'm going to embarrass him. And then you turned it into an opportunity to open up. A discussion does evangelization right. Yep that's what it is. And and i'm not saying that they were converted. I don't know. But i've seen that one of my mic leaks. He before he left he said i am going to marry. I didn't mention this to you. I've been in preparation. I'm going and married in the catholic church said okay and you planted some seeds to what it is dice. It and that one is going to help authors. It was john. John guy right In the in the high twenties wonderful opportunity so two thousand fourteen is when they left the netherlands and the brought me to houston texas because of work because of work so you company moved you from the netherlands. And how old was your daughter at that point She was five and a half almost six years problems with english. Now be now. She wasn't an american school of hake dot time and she's brilliant. She's very smart. Alava two still speak. No no no no none. She lost that unfortunately. What is not going to lose as the accent. Because what happens is any acts any language you develop before seven accent is the one that will remain the vocabulary. Gone her whenever she decides to go back to dutch she's going to pick it up really quickly. with a perfect accent so my that time. She speaks perfect spanish and english because as a rule at home speak. Spanish at school was english and antiques. Was starch so she was trilingual trailer. That's pretty cool trailing moving here houston. What year was that. That was two thousand fourteen and your daughter was held at the time. Sorry i can almost almost six so she started going to school. Yeah houston and that's when you found saint faustina. Well actually i just that started in. Saint joan policy can okay and the energy corridor. That's eldridge We moved here to Filter so we actually moved to terra. We bought a house there. Guess what we had the school. Yes so i was very close to san tina. But i didn't go to san jose ca said. Did they know that. San francisco was there. You don't know that we were having mass. The school yes. So i started going to follow mu. That was perished that. I i started working with so it was a lecturer over there Of course when they moved here. I wanted i want to help. I want help you know i. I've always been very active. I'm so i wanted to help. And i started working follow me. Yes electric for my role my job. I traveled a lot. Woody so it was very hard for me to really have a more active role in in any ministry So but somebody thought him you one that opened their for me but why refer the distance because when before we moved from the netherlands here there was one thing. It was a mosque for me. It was a catholic education for my daughter in the netherlands. We couldn't get that an and the reason is even though there might be catholic schools not a catholic curriculum really so but but that might be a conversation from for another time but what it was very important for me because even though hair school was great academically american school of was fantastic and he gave my daughter the opportunity to work with people from around the world Different faith in different. Believe or not believe. I was missing s. I mentioned to you that support from the school. I grew up with so i talked to my wife and we we agreed. She's going to study in a catholic school. So i did my homework when it was in the netherlands in and we decided jump aldo second eastern school that we wanted to go there was what is far away doesn't matter we'll commute. We will sacrifice whatever she's gonna she gonna go there so she started in preschool in saint john. Paul defected to the second catholic school. And she's there nowadays so after six years or so cool and you're in the formation program right now and you're four years into it. How did that get started. Oh that's the best question. Okay so this. This was a second call the first call. I got to to consider becoming a deacon happen when western orleans make sense right public. you know. Everyone knew who. I was on that radio. Show so one lewis came to me and said you should consider doing this. Let me tell you something. Woody i i was. I was ready to be the i wanted to be. I would have loved to be a beacon and they told me no really and they told me no. Because at that time i had a working visa. Okay and which was meant to be for a period of time and the the diocese said you move so. We don't think that you have that commitment to complete the program until you have more permanent residency. A things like that they then we could go see that dan ten years or something after that Bomb palomares who was also new formation. Here told me. I told father that that That you want it to be an an act so we made an appointment so you're gonna talk to father that to become an accurate. Ah chai came here. Ready to talk to her that become an and not quite so when a said sat down and talked to other that he said okay godless. I'm i'm so thrilled that you are considering to become a deacon.

Yeah he's been preaching all over latin america. I do have examples. We went on a pilgrimage to europe to italy. We were in a in a park or a mass at a church and people would come to him like. He's a celebrity well really when he came to. Houston you know. We had to have bodyguards and things like that around him he was that. When did he come to use well. T- comes Quite often dominic center when he came So we had a lotta people that wanted to touch even get a picture with him. He has come here to sound festina twice. We have invited him for the healy masses I think the first mass. I was april two thousand and eighteen or something like that he came and then and then two thousand nineteen. He came again in a lot of people came from from a texas just to watch him. I remember hundred. I remember a couple of bills healing masses being really jam packed. Well a lot of a lot of hispanics know who who his so. That's why we're going back to that radio show. He gave me that opportunity in an and i always try to go back to that moment to to be humble to remind myself that it is the holy spirit acting and not me because the problem really and these these world. We argue knowing the dna from asia. And when you call gaul day right and you preach and people say why. What a wonderful wonderful reflection. You may forget that it's not about you. Yes so always go back to those moments. Where west seating sweating scared to death. And i pray and i watched the holy spirit acting through me at this is it. I will always remember that. It's not about me. I'm just an instrument because it's easy to fall into that it's a slippery slope like human beings. Yes exactly. i'm not gonna come here. Lie that i don't like people coming to me and say i don't wanna miserable life but but i wanna make sure that at the end of the day i down ipod and i said okay laura saw about you. This is yours not mine now. Now tell us about your moving to europe. Yeah so i moved there. Don eleven when my wife and my daughter Dutch is the main language. So i never learned. I'm gonna be on my daughter who flew in my wife. you know. learn more way more than me. How old is your daughter. She was two and a half years. Okay so it's easy to pick up a language. She was international school. American school of the hague. We live in the hake which is the capital of the is political capital of the netherlands. The graphical capita senate The hake It was a wonderful opportunity rudy. Work why it was great because a headquarters on my company are there. Maybe people already know where where i worked for mckay. The headquarters are there so he wasn't wonderful opportunity but personally a family. We got closer than ever really. We had no friends moment. Yeah the church was not as active as it is here so i had to reinvent myself and my evangelisation a lawyer if you you brought me here what do you want from me And and i don't know if people think that the law is going to pick up the phone and call you and tell you or text you okay cadre cici's exactly what i want from you does enough of that so you need to be very active in search in. What do you want from me. You need to be knock endured. So i know the door. Santini's does anx. that's the name of the parish. I joined very poor. very poor parish. Know many people going there. Woody but the priest was from bolivia so spanish speaker. Larry flew in dutch. So i tried helping that priced so high. They particularly rudy to to work with prostitutes. It goes s. legal in the lunch to work with people that Sale in negotiate. We drugs it goes at some level. Let that leader was. I completely different. Ballgame what parish was this saint inks santana's as a name in the netherlands. As when i realized the divine law i deceive the law is really really really evident in the netherlands because the law the civil law you could be is legal to be a prostitute way of living your life. It is legal to consume and use trucks in whatever whatever measurements. So how do we. How can i explain to them. Otherwise i divine law was way beyond anything else How could i explain them and work with them without judgment boating pasture away. Yes showing care to say your salvation is more important than anything else. But at the same time recognizing their keats were hungry. They had someone needed something to eat. So then i understood. Thank you laura. 'cause you brought me here to face. The reality of the challenges we have as catholics because catholic means universal. Scaffolding means that we need to go and see everyone. We don't go out and ask you catholic. How how often have you been going to mass kushner. I help you know but hey you yes are you are you. It was a great opportunity. Those were almost four years rudy that expand their in different ways. I had to be creative to go out and and help and talk to people individualize Because we didn't have all the ministries in all the structure and infrastructure that we have here in the us was a different story. But i couldn't use an excuse. I wa- brought there to vandalize. That's that's what i knew. Bender lower left me. Now you do it so most of the people there are av ests eight.

"We agreed we want to change. So tell us a little bit. Just a brief Since forgive my ignorance about who are low. The political situation back. Then what will. What was the situation so there was a guitar in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight hugo chavez a west elected as the president And you know. He's tide bringing socialism communism. Those ideas right are very light in the simulated then. Very open and with no concern. Whoever these are we gonna do. And i was completely opposed to the communist idea that socialism that because they didn't understand whether we're saying it was only that scraped to make the the people to embrace that in support so In two thousand and two there was a nationalist strike against the government and national company was leading that my wife was part of the national company and sr we sold half of the population of the company. Where fired wow. She was one of them. Wow dad was the beginning of this journey because she was not able to find a job while she blackballed lakota. Everybody who was fired. Everyone was blackballed work. Could not find work. It was so opened. It was an internet your name so he was that obvious just because he worked for the company yet because you decided to go and data strikes boy that is strike then desert. So you you're gonna you're gonna be Kicked out that's crazy the company so that was the beginning of our thought process. Well this is not what we want. What are we going to do So we started exploring options and in a many options. One of them was to come to the united states to continue my education so i came to united states to enroll in university to get a masters degree. Okay that's what i did. And what university and the new version of oklahoma or you saw sooner so i understand he in texas. I should now be saying that. But i am sooner That wasn't university that Well to me Norman oklahoma so in two thousand and five. I had to make probably one of the first in decision tough decision in my life. I had a fantastic job rudy in these international company Good salary good good future great but but he was not an offer me it was because for me it was about being in a place that i felt i belong and unfortunately not buying that ids. I mentioned to the companies and socialism's. This is not what i want for my kids. I want to do something else. So i find this opportunity to come to the united states. Get a master degree and the beauty. It was that the company worked for. They supported me so they gave me a partial rents good night and they gave me a list of options so to come here with a job and they hate me for the first semester. This is an bryner. I need to do it. Yeah so definitely. The lure was in charge of every decision because he was naughty to get that support at the moment. Yes so probably one of the first ones in that company that left and there was beginning of two thousand and five okay. I went to to oklahoma to get that degree. And the best part is that we do that. You go through the legal route. Yes then you get your degree and then you get a permit to work a temporary or permanent to work but you well because they had a permit to work in had my connection. We my my company. Yes i was able to join or rejoin the company in new orleans so we moved from oklahoma to new orleans. So your wife was with you. My wife would meet all the time so you you brought while you were in university. Yes able to find work in oklahoma yes actually. Ict worked for that year. And a half. That i was starting and i was watching tv. And you're studying right. That i had worked for five years and he said i'm going to take a break. I'm going to study so she was the one work She was working in I know it's a great opportunity for her. It was not in the oil and gas industry but he was. She was working in asset manager of a complex of apartment. She's very into the details very organized so he was a fantastic job for her but the fact that she was blackballed that didn't affect her when she came here it was only in venezuela only There was no connection whatsoever He and the in the us so she did have any problem to do that. So you went from oklahoma to new orleans and how did you end up in texas. Well not yet so interesting in new orleans we moved just after katrina so late self. That's no us a wonderful opportunity for us. to grow. As human beings we were so close to the desperation. They need that disaster. Yeah i know. Many people were moving back. We were a where the brave ones that decided to to go there to move back to oakland to excuse me norling from from oklahoma tune yards where nobody was moving there right because the the condition where.

"We are having a conversation today with Jose Hernandez and we started talking before I started recording for our official conversation. And I asked you where had gone to law school, assuming because we're talking about Lord Fairfax Community College. I live in my own bubble and assumed you were a local guy and that is not at all the case. So Jose tell me a little bit about what you were doing in high school. And what brought you to Lord Fairfax Community College. Yes, to be honest. Like I was in high school in 2000 from 2013 to 2015 at the high school in New York City in Far Rockaway Queens. I saw earlier because I came first the United States in 2013 when I was sixteen years old pair of my family was giving in Queens New York my mother and father. So I came from Salvador that is a Central American country. And then I have to learn you know English I had to learn wage. Culture and traditions that this beautiful country offers that is the United States and so I was there in New York City, but I also have like family here living in Winchester, Virginia. It came full circle. Yes. It was where I did my high school in two years and and have something like that and so at the high school in New York and they've finished their and because my parents are from El Salvador and we have like this like feeling or inclusiveness and we try to keep the family united. So that's why we moved. We just a beginning because parent my other family was living here. I cannot even begin to comprehend how complicated it must be to come to a brand new country where you don't speak the language and have to start school. What was that experience? Like it was a little difficult because of the language and basically this one thing that is very difficult. Also because there is like I was living in a city so the difficult part of sometimes living in a city when it is a big city, like for example to try continue the summer After High School, sometimes it's difficult because to be honest with you I learn English in high school, but when I came to try to like more than high school because I had the home in fate to continuing my education to go college to go university. But at the same time I was a first-generation student. I was you know, the first one that you went to high school and not the way try to go college so it was difficult because you don't know how to do things sometimes and that's a lot of pressure. Yes. It is. I went to a school in a suburb home idea, you know my Elementary School my middle school thing. I even did my high school over there. So the thing it is like While it was it was a I got support from my family and I have support from the population the Latino population around in your city and I have so many friends over them and they held me even to other school because basically I wasn't at school. I was studying in an adult learning center just learning English because we don't even know how to sign out to the school and anything because I was the first one in game my parents they didn't have, you know, the opportunity to put a kid in school. So basically one afternoon that I was playing soccer with my friends, they asked me because they were wearing the same age as me. Where are you going to in which high school are you in and I just explained it to them know. I'm sorry, but I don't go to high school because I don't know what it is. So they say no we have to take this guy so he can play too with us in the soccer team and that's how we win. That's how to getting in high school by friendship Sports Club. Sports they don't inspect the sports. Yeah, so that's how I went there. So, like I said, it was difficult because of the language but it made so many friends from all over Iraq war and at the same time I have the feeling of supporting from the teachers and everything. It was a really good experience, even though I sometimes was really frustrating because I'm in the first year. I knew I understood a lot of words that I wasn't able to speak for my teachers and things like that because I don't even know how to respond in the English language and that stuff mm imagine because you have the answer. You know, what the answer is you just can't verbalize the answers so that she knows that you know, yeah, so it's very difficult. But you know that there are a lot of transitions in life. So you're not you need to like try to stay like humble and try to do the best because sometimes you have to pursue age. Buildings in order to reach. So what brought you to Lord Fairfax Community College because I moved here to Winchester Virginia. And I remember that came and looked for the school's it was a teacher on mobile device or that I talked to in Henry High School that she taught me about Lord Fairfax Community College and other schools there people are more Fairfax Community College did a job for me because at the moment my English is not in at the college level at the moment. It was a team that I needed because to be honest if I still being in New York and tried to go school there. I know that I may be wrong or something like that. But because they were a lot of students like a hundred and fifty students for in a classroom, but in still here in Northwest Community College have classes life with Thirty thirty-five twenty. It was the right spot for me because they held me and and like I said, like I even have to take ESL classes when I was there some people Can say like maybe that was a still I still back because I explained one year just learning ESL classes, but it wasn't because without a year in all the health on the home from the program. I was in be able to be at the college level you needed to have one in order to get to the other. Yes. Sometimes we want to run and do the things quickly but thighs it is not a way some people, you know, they have like, you know, they live here they were here the so they have like more opportunities and they have the time and the language all those things but you have to be perseverance and have patience. So I understand you are attending JM you you're at James Madison University. Now, did you graduate lf-cc and they'll go on to JM you.
