RINO Billionaires Are Now Coalescing Behind Nikki Haley
"Wants you to know she's up for the fight. She's told us over and over again that she's a woman. Why does she have to tell us over and over again that she's a woman? Isn't that what the Libs do, or at least used to do? Okay, got it. She's a woman. Perfect. But she's not Margaret Thatcher. Let's be honest. The problem is Nikki Haley's not a conservative. I've said it before I'll and say it again. She's George Bush in a dress. Obviously what I mean by that is ideologically. This is why Karl Rove is getting behind her. This is why others who horrific have losing streaks are getting behind her. Billionaires getting behind her. There's a report out now, I think it was Axios, that said that she was meeting with the. No, no, there's a report on Axios that says Mitt Romney's big money guy has now moved over to Kelly's team. What? Oh yeah. Romney's guy. And there's more. Remember this guy Fink at Black Rock? I wrote about him and The Democrat Party hates America and we've talked about him very often. Black Rock? Remember he was pushing ESG, that is, he was pushing hard this woke agenda and trying to impose it on all the other companies that he helps finance or invests in? A one -man wrecking machine, this guy Fink. Well guess who she met with a few days ago? Him. Why would she meet with him? Ron DeSantis. May I use his name, Mr. Producer? Is that okay? What drew $2 billion from Black Rock because of what they were doing? Yeah. Thank you. Iggy Haley And Iggy Haley was the one who said she said it herself. I know this to be true. I checked with my stepson, Mr. Producer. And that is that Disney, she said Disney can come to South Carolina while DeSantis is fighting Disney. She invites them to South Carolina and I can go on and on. And it's not just her versus DeSantis or her versus Ramaswami or versus her Trump, it's her versus us. Us. So you're seeing, if you were to ask Mitch McConnell who he liked, Nikki Haley. They'll all like Nikki Haley. In Washington D .C., Republicans. the That's who

A highlight from How Bitcoin Fights Tyranny with Erik Cason
"If I'm not wrong about Bitcoin, then I believe that this is the most radical apparatus that has ever put its hands in humanity, and that is the only thing that can save us from the potential annihilation of total war that we are eking towards closer and closer every day. Hello there. How are you all doing? Hope you're doing well. A few things to update you on. Firstly, travels over the next month. We'll be heading out to Fort Worth, I think it's next week, two weeks, I can't remember, for the North American Blockchain Summit before we head out to Ghana to attend the Africa Bitcoin Conference in December and to make another film. It's going to be very busy. We've also announced our conference in Bedford in April next year. Please do go and check that out, cheatco .co .uk. Anyway, welcome to the What Bitcoin Did podcast, which is brought to you by the legends at RS Energy, the largest NASDAQ listed Bitcoin miner using 100 % renewable energy. I'm your host, Peter McCormack, and today we have Eric Cason making his debut on What Bitcoin Did. Now, Eric has been around in Bitcoin for a long time and recently dropped his book, Crypto Sovereignty, in which he expands upon a lot of his writings over the last few years. Now, I absolutely love this show, but not as much as our boy Danny. We've made a few more philosophical shows over the past couple of years, and they are among some of my favorites. I love getting into the wild stuff, especially with someone like Eric. Now, he claims he isn't a philosopher, but have a listen. I think you'll disagree. And all I know is Danny absolutely loved this. It was his favorite show, I think, this year. So I hope you enjoy this one. If you've got any questions about this or anything else, please do get in touch. It's hello at whatpikwondid .com. Danny is like all week, he's like, all right, I cannot wait for the Eric Cason to come on. It's going to be completely fucking nuts, but you're going to love him. That's a pretty good - That pretty much sums it up. Yeah, it's a pretty good synopsis of who I am. Well, look, welcome. Good to finally have you on the show. It's been a long time coming. Do you know what's funny in the last one? So we do notes for the shows, and sometimes I don't even refer to them, but sometimes I do. But I'd opened Eric's notes, and I was looking. So I had Mark Masson, and I was like, so you just dropped a book? I was like, has he just dropped a book? Did you have - No, I did switch it around, but I did have the wrong notes. Anyway, Eric, how are you? I'm good. Strung out from the concert, but you know, or from the conference. Well, in the conference, I went to a concert last night too. Who'd you go and see? Tinlicker. They're part of the Anjunadeep label. They're like a big, they're pretty big in the UK, actually. What kind of music is it? Deep House. Yeah, that's not my thing. Yeah. Yeah, I listen to Slayer and Megadeth and shit like that. Congratulations on the book. I haven't read it. Thank you. It's been a long time coming. I've read some of it, but. Danny usually gets them read in time, but yeah, congratulations. Tell me about the book first, and then we'll get going. Well, the book, it didn't start as a book. It just started as a series of essays that I was just kind of writing, exploring philosophical and sociological content of Bitcoin. And sort of as I got deeper and deeper, I was like, whoa, there's like all these threads sort of connecting. So the book I can really say is more of like a constellation of a greater incomplete work that I'm sort of working on now, that's trying to essentially do an entire philosophical approach towards, I guess what we call it, called like the sociology of cryptography or something like that. We did consider doing mushrooms for this episode. Well, I mean, it would be really nice, but then I got to get on my flight kind of all weird and stuff. I'm just not sure how that would go with TSA. I've had some close calls like that before. I don't really do mushrooms as well, so I'd be completely lost. I don't do acid on planes anymore. Oh, anymore. Yeah, there was an incident once. So I decided I was like, it's time to throttle back on that. Really great way to pass eight hours on a plane. Yeah, please tell me. There's not much to tell you. Cause everybody's always like, you're going to take it, you're just going to flip out on the plane, right? No, like you sit down and you're like, I'm going 600 miles through the air, 330 ,000 feet in the air. Like this is amazing. And if the plane just burst into flames, I'm going to meet God now. It doesn't matter, I can't do anything. So I'm just going to look outside and see all of the amazing mountains and the clouds and how incredible and extraordinary it all is. Did you see that guy get dragged off a plane recently? It was going to Ibiza and had to do an emergency landing, I think in Marseille and they dragged him off the plane cause he was off his nut. No, I didn't see that. Absolutely off his nut. Probably like a weekly occurrence from there. Yeah, I was thinking, what are you doing, doing drugs on a plane? Yeah, yeah. So, you know, I decided that I was getting it a little too close. So we're not doing that anymore just for me and everyone else's safety. Just the gin and tonic will do. Exactly. So what's your philosophy background? I don't have one. You don't have it, even better, okay. But you are a philosopher. No, no, I'm not a philosopher at all. I eschew when anyone tries to call me a philosopher. Maybe I could pass for a thinker. I always say I'm a strategist at best, so. How do you get class as a philosopher? Isn't that a choice? A class? Well, no, essentially like this was all compelled by, when I got into Bitcoin, I had this moment that I was like, how is it possible that this piece of technology can keep its oath to itself in a way that like no man, no institution, no government, no organization seems to be capable of? And it was like a splinter in my mind. And I was like, all right, really smart people have thought about this before me. So like, let's do some Googling about the oath and the philosophy. And I came across this philosopher, Giorgio Ambogon, and I got a book of his called The Sacrament of Oath, The Archaeology of Language. And it's really, really good. It's like the fourth book in like a nine book series called Homo Secur. And now I've read the whole series. And essentially in it, like he's doing a whole archeology of like, what is the oath? How did it function? How did it come about? And he kind of like goes all the way back to pre -Roman times. And he was like, the oath really is like this object of language that fuses magic, religion, and words into a singular that actually has nothing to do with the content that's spoken, but it has to do with the actualization of what's been promised. And so this then marries up with an individual called Homo Secur, who's like the forsaken man throughout human history, who all legal systems have always given themselves a right and a decree to destroy these people, but it's not murder. And most interestingly is that these people can't be used in sacrifices ritualized either, because it's about putting them outside the purview and the protection of the gods. So like they can't have anything to do with religion. And what's pretty interesting is that like, essentially there have been these like non peoples throughout human history that could always be destroyed by the state because of the way that like they're the other bad people. And they pose a threat to the entire system. So like they must be destroyed. And so following the lineage of that person, I kind of like connected that up to modernity and seeing how like now we live in a constant state of emergency where like any of us can be labeled as a terrorist or any enemy combatant. And not only like, do we just not, not only are we in prison, but like access to the law itself is fundamentally impossible. Like we can't even get habeas corpus. So yeah, it's been a pretty interesting journey. And then there's like 10 other philosophers that like on the concourse of it, he like mentioned that and I have to like go on the journey to read them. And I'm also dealing with like a lot of, like a lot of these thinkers you can't approach in academia because they're like solely with backgrounds either in like communism or like radical fascism or other things. So like the moment that you start reading them, people are like, you got to get out of academia. Like you're not welcome here. Why? Specifically so like Heidegger for example, Heidegger is really solely because not only did he belong to the Nazi party, but it seems like a lot of his philosophy actually deals with trying to like actualize a political party that explicitly can identify friend and enemy classes for like the evolution of that political ideal. And so in my opinion, dealing with Heidegger and understanding him very intently so that you can make a criticism of him is essential. Like if you actually want to make your way through the course of phenomenological philosophy and like actually like make your way past Heidegger. you So are saying there's like a whole class of philosophers or philosophy that is essentially kind of censored? Absolutely. One of the guys that, a more contemporary fellow, his name is Michael Norman. He was from the University of Toronto, but brilliant, brilliant scholar. He was studying Heidegger like pretty intensely and he essentially got canceled from the University of Toronto and was intimidated and sort of forced out. It is Canada, it's not surprising. We're ragging on Canada a lot recently. Have you registered yourself yet? We don't have to yet. Okay. Yeah, because we don't make $10 million in revenue, but if there's a bull market, yeah, no, it's the platforms and if you make more than $10 million. I don't know if that's podcast in Canada or anyone. What do you mean as in based in Canada? Like, do you have to be based in Canada or if we want to disseminate our content in Canada? Don't know, probably based in Canada, I would guess. I would have thought the latter actually, because otherwise how can we control you? Well, we don't make $10 million yet, so. Yeah, we're close. After this pod though. Nine and a half million. Okay, so what, the background is they're seen as dangerous words? Yeah, I mean like another floss for I deal a lot with is Karl Schmidt. And so like Schmidt was like a, he was a member of the Nazi party and specifically what I think is the most damning of Schmidt is he actually wrote the legal defense for Hitler during the night of the long knives that essentially justified why that state of emergency was used and that really sort of solidified from a legal perspective that like Hitler's decree was the law itself. And interestingly enough, like Schmidt was actually arrested and in prison for like three years to go and trial at Nuremberg, but they just eventually felt like he didn't have enough evidence. And the biggest irony is that Schmidt actually wrote in, I think it was in 1931 on the concept of the political. And this specifically was talking about like the crisis that the Weimar Republic was facing and that essentially if Chancellor von Hindenburg didn't use the clause of article 38 in the constitution to declare a state of emergency and banned both the Nazis and the communists, that the Weimar Republic would be in crisis. So ironically enough, this didn't see its way into the hands of the chancellor. And so when he was ousted and Hitler came to power, it turned out Hitler was actually kind of a fan of Schmidt's work and Hitler read it and he was like, ah, that's like clause 38 thing. Like this is what we use to destroy the Weimar Republic. Okay, so what do we lose by limiting the kind of scope of books that are studied? I mean, everything, like that's sort of the contextual space that we can have to actually criticize these works. So like look like Mein Kampf should be read not because it's brilliant, but because it's absolutely stupid. Okay. Like it's just an idiotic framework. And like, as soon as you read it, you go, oh, like this Nazism thing is actually like really stupid. Like there's not really much substance to it. I mean, even in the Nuremberg trials, when they asked Schmidt about Hitler, he like sighed and was dismissive. He was like, I can't even discuss his ideology because I find it so superfluous. Well, what is the TLDR? Cause I haven't read Mein Kampf. I doubt, have you read it? I know. I doubt I will. The TLDR is essentially that like Aryan individuals have a superior place in the world because they lead German culture and German culture has helped develop the West on a whole. And that that needs to be defended against all the individuals who aren't part of German culture that are invading Germany. And we need to get lunch in Rome in order to expand German culture and people. And that we always need to be aggressive and warring against the other people that are trying to come into us. And so like, we need to expand the Aryan people as much as possible, make as many of them and destroy anybody that tries to threaten that. So it was elitism. Elitism fused with a general nationalism that then wants to try to create a hierarchical order of people. Right, okay. And so how have you picked the rabbit hole for you to go to that eventually gets you to crypto sovereignty? It's pretty interesting. Well, so like after the Occupy Wall Street movement, like I was exposed to all of those things and it was very clear to me that money was substantially broken. And it was also very clear to me that we couldn't use the political system to make that operable. So for me, I just fell into a crushing depression where I was like, there's no conceivable way to solve any of this problem. Like, how do you neutralize this money problem that's so endemic? So like in my crushing depression, I was just like, well, like maybe, maybe that's it. Maybe I just need to like end it. There's like no good. We can never make anything happen. So I had like, somebody had essentially like whispered to me at Occupy about Bitcoin and how this was like the answer. What year was Occupy? Was that 2011? 2011. Okay. Yeah, so this was like early 2012 that like all this stuff was percolating. And so I like looked up some stuff about Bitcoin and I was like, oh, like this was really interesting and kind of let it percolate a little. And then I came across an article about people that were essentially like doing money laundering in between China and Singapore, like using Bitcoin. And I had wrote my senior thesis at university on the East Asian financial crisis and capital controls. So I was like really intrigued. I was like, capital controls are really powerful. And if you can get around the Chinese communist government capital controls, like pretty that's essential. So like now the Bitcoin thing had really sparked up for me and I was getting into it, reading a lot more about it. But there was all of these like lingering questions about like, how is this even working? Like I get it technologically, but like why, why can't I make a money when like no government can adequately make a money? Like, and then I did the research on the cypherpunk stuff and I was like, oh, okay, this is making sense. And then from Occupy, I'd really gone from being like a far left socialist or communist to like a full on anarchist. And that's really kind of the change that I went under Occupy. And so for me, anarchism was like a sufficient inoculation to be able to like explore both radical communist and radical fascist theory and be able to kind of pick and choose what works for me, what doesn't work for me. And I think that that piece of being like inoculated vis -a -vis anarchism, because to me it was like, I admit that the state is an apparatus of violence and we can't use it at all. And like both fascism and communism see those as key components, but like what else can we maybe learn from these theories? Like, is there anything of value here? And in my opinion, there's a lot of valuable stuff. It's just understanding where all of the pitfalls are and then how it essentially becomes a violent apparatus of destruction vis -a -vis statism and the authority that it tries to decree to people. Okay, so that shift from radical socialism to anarchism, was that like a, was that an actual shift or was that an evolution of your ideas, your worldview, where you actually realize what it is you, the issues you have in the world or complications the you see or the problems you see with the state, actually you thought socialism was a solution, but it really is anarchism, potentially. Yes, and like the actual like point of change was when I was in Philadelphia, like the Occupy National Gathering, and we had assembled at the Peaceful Assembly monument that's on the National Monument Mall, and the police told us to like get lost. And we're like, no, you don't understand. This is like the freedom to assemble memorial. They're like, we're telling you. And I was like, but you don't, then they got the tranche on that and started beating the shit out of me, right? Right on top of the memorial too. And I remember like, as he's like hitting me, like I have this thought, I was like, oh, like the state is not my friend. Like these people aren't gonna help us ever. And that was kind of like my big radical shift in understanding that like the state wasn't actually this thing that was gonna help us out. So what brought you to radical socialism then? What is it about you? So I grew up in the Western United States in California. So I grew up in woo woo, liberal California with everything feels really good. And like one of the really important things about socialism I wanna honor is like, it feels really good. Like this was like a really great idea that we want everybody to understand and get on board with. We should like share stuff that's like important. And there's like a common in community. I think the problem is that all of those feel good feelings, those are ots as opposed to like what is. And like what is is as good as we have those feelings, like there are very real limits to what we can provide. Like as much as we do centrally plan something and saying, we're gonna provide this for everybody, there is actual corruptions and limits to it. So I think for me, that experience of getting beaten was understanding that as much as this shouldn't be happening, it is. And why is it happening? And why do things like this happen? And for me, it was realizing that like, oh, this like apparatus of violence where people decide that like, hey, if you don't do the thing I tell you, I'm gonna hurt you, which seems like a really basic thing. But I really realized like kind of starkly, I was like, oh, like, this is the thing that like runs the entire world is like this entire module of punishment and discipline and trying to create an orderly world, which it does really, really well, but there's all these tertiary issues that come out from it that aren't really well connected to it. Such as? Well, such as if we want to look at the largest polluters in the world, like it's the US military. And so like, there's this endemic problem of that. Violence is a very real and endemic problem, but violence on a state -based level is a whole nother game. And that's one that we all comply to and act like it's a totally normalized thing that if somebody just doesn't comply, that using violence to get their compliance is good. Well, it's slightly different where we're from because we don't have guns. So they might hit you with a truncheon, but it's very rare that a police officer shoots someone. It's a big deal when that happens. Yeah, it's a huge deal. It usually leads to some form of protest. We had riots in South London a few years back on the basis of it, there's a massive investigation. There's actually a situation at the moment recently where a marksman shot somebody and killed them. And he's now being tried for murder. And a number of the, cause we don't have many cops with guns, we have some, we have like armed response or at the airports, a number of come in and handed in their guns because they don't want to run the risk of having to use their gun in the line of work and risk being tried for murder. Well, are you held accountable, just like a normal citizen who chose to shoot somebody? It depends on the situation, but every shooting will have an investigation. But this one, I don't know the details of it, but I just know he's now going to be tried for murder. And that's particularly rare. I couldn't even tell you the last time that's happened. I would say most of the time they're not treated the same way. Okay. Cause like here in the United States, like police officers get certain immunities for when they use their gun, particularly if like they say like, I felt like my life was in danger. And I think like there's only been like 21 officers like convicted throughout the history of the United States, like being put on trial for murder, like using their gun, like while in action. And so like, that's like a massive imbalance. And so to me, again, like the problem, the state is essentially saying, hey, there are people out there that can use their firearms. They're going to get special protection under the law. And they're also going to have a very cozy relationship with the prosecutors when they do come to do that. And to me, like this is a pretty gross abortion of justice. And it also communicates very clearly to police officers like, hey, if you shoot somebody in the line of duty, probably aren't going to be held responsible. So it's the monopoly and violence that, I listened to a podcast, I can't remember who it was. It might've been Sam Harris, I know he won't be popular. And I'm sure he was arguing that the monopoly of violence was the best thing we gave the government because it leads to net less violence. That's, I'm just telling you, that's what I read. But when I heard that, and I thought in terms of the United States, I thought actually that might be less true. I think it's potentially more true in the UK. It's interesting that there's that dynamic that sort of exudes itself. Because we don't have guns. Yeah, and I think that that's a pretty interesting example because yeah, the monopoly on violence, we could say in theory is working out pretty well there. And when we look at the United States, we'd say, ah, not having a monopoly on violence here doesn't seem to be working out so well. But I'm purely guessing. I could be entirely wrong. But one of the main problems is that like, all right, that works for a specific limited duration, but now we end up getting ourselves into Germany in 1930. We disarm the whole population. Like, hey, this is really great. There aren't any more firearm deaths. Now we have a population that we don't really like, that we start bullying a whole bunch. Turns out we really don't like them and we want to steal all their stuff. Turns out we actually hate them entirely and we don't even want them to be German citizens and we want to extinguish them. And so now we're talking about the wholesale murder of 2 million people.

And then obviously our football stuff, all our culture stuff as well. And we're gonna have a big announcement on this podcast on Thursday about an upcoming show you might not be expecting. Coming up in this pod, I'm gonna talk about the Clippers trading for James Harden at the top and why I thought it was a huge mistake. And then our old friend Mike Lombardi, we're gonna talk about the trade deadline in the NFL as well as what team that seemingly looks like their season's almost over might actually jump in the second half of the year. And then last but not least, we're gonna talk Italian movies and Italian TV shows because why not? This is a fun podcast. First, our friends from Pearl Jam. ["PURL JAM"] All right, I'm taping this on Tuesday before the Clippers game on Tuesday night. The Clippers traded for James Harden late night. They tried to do this as late as possible at night when the most possible people were asleep because they were embarrassed by this trade. And they should be because they're the Clippers. They haven't made the finals ever in the history of the franchise, dating back to Buffalo in 1970, talking five and a half decades of bad luck, terrible injuries, mismanagement. We had the Donald Sterling piece of it. We had load management. And in the last couple of years, they've had some of the worst playoff losses of the 21st century. And now they're trading for a guy who's quit on his last three teams. So they decided, you know what, we'll do this in the middle of the night on the East Coast at least. So we'll take the least amount of slack. They were bidding against nobody. There's 30 teams in the league. One of them had James Harden. 28 other teams were like, we're good. And the Clippers said, you know what, we need this guy. We'll still be not nearly as good as Denver, but if we do this, maybe we could lose in either round two or round three, maybe? I just feel like they don't have any draft picks left for the rest of the decade. So they basically traded three picks for James Harden. The worst one was a 2028 unprotected first. Why do this now? Why do this for a team with no other offers? Why bid against yourself? And why not just wait? If you know you're trading basically two and a half picks plus all these expirings they had, why not wait? The league, I don't know if you've watched it the first week, the league is more talented and more loaded than it's ever been, probably in 30 years. And there's a really, really, really good chance that a couple teams that thought they were gonna be good are not gonna be good. Like for instance, Memphis is 0 -4. Or is Memphis gonna go 25 and 57? Probably not. But there's gonna be a couple teams that are just way worse than they expected. And guess what happens after Thanksgiving and in December and in January? Those teams panic. Guys become available. Like what if Toronto is bad? What if they're like, you know what, Pascal Siakam, this just isn't working for us. What if Chicago, who's already had two team meetings, I think, in three games, what if they decide to put Zach Levine on the table? Like you just don't know. What you do know now is that there was only one team bidding for James Harden and the Clippers ended up with him anyway. The other thing, if you're giving up this much for one guy, I better know that I have a chance to actually win the title. And I just don't feel like they do. I went to the game Sunday night. Kawhi, he looks fine. He looks fine. Does he look like the Kawhi from the mid -2010s? No. Does he look like the guy from 2019 Toronto? He does not. He looks like an older playing himself back in the shape version of Kawhi. And if that's your best player, that's just not gonna be enough this year. The Celtics are too good. Denver is too good. Milwaukee has Giannis and Dame. Phoenix has a ton of scoring. Golden State's gonna be really good. They're still not in the mix. So that was my first issue. The second one, who are you getting? Who are you getting in this trade? Where you're getting I .S. Quinn on three teams. You're getting the most disappointing playoff star this century, literally this century. And there's no other person you can put in there. There's nobody who has even half of the qualifications from a playoff disappointment standpoint that this guy does. Zach Lowe came on the Book of Basketball podcast, I think in 2019, we did a James Harden podcast. And in that podcast, which was four years ago, called him the Karl Malone of guards. And I was immediately the most jealous I've ever been of a comparison. Since then, he had the 2020 bubble flame out. Then they had in 2022, the Miami series, which he sucked in. And then in 2023, the Celtic series, this guy, it's an all time resume. And the Clippers who are just playoff futility through and through for the entire franchise history were like, that's the guy. That's the guy that can take the lovable loser Clippers over the top, James Harden. He slows you down. He needs the ball all the time. The Clippers now have Paul George, who succeeds the most when he has the ball. Koulai Leonard, who has perennially succeeded the most when he has the ball. Russell Westbrook, who loves to either have the ball or crash the boards. And now Harden, who needs the ball. See four guys who need the ball. Then Norm Powell comes in, he needs the ball. Bones Holland comes in, he needs the ball. Are we playing with three balls now? No, we're gonna still play with one. James Harden can't guard anybody. That seems relevant. He hasn't played defense in four years.
A highlight from Diversity Disaster
"Welcome to the Dennis Prager Show. I'm your guest host, Karl Jackson, sitting in for Dennis Prager. The number to call into the program, one eight Prager seven seven six. That number again is one eight Prager seven seven six or one eight two four three seventy seven seventy six. All right, I want to thank first off Dennis Prager and Sue for allowing me to sit behind their microphone and then entrusting me behind their mouth. I've got my back right here at AM 950. The answer Orlando .com right here in Orlando, Florida. Sean McConnell is in my ear. I want to thank Alan Estrin as well for allowing me as well to sit in and contacting me. Who do we have watching the lines there, Mr. McConnell? Tony is on the line. Thank you, Tony. Good to see you. All right, the number to call in one eight Prager seven seven six, one eight Prager seven seven six. I'm going to do things a little differently today. Of course, we'll touch some of the hot topics and some of the leading headlines of today, but I'm going to go I'm going to go somewhere else today and and and we'll bob and weave throughout the throughout the program here. I think I want to start here. I want to make some emphatic comments, and I know a lot of people might not be comfortable with these comments, but by the end of the show, I hope and pray that you will be and you will understand just how important they are, because there's a war that is occurring not just against Israel and Hamas or, dare I say, Israel and Iran, a war, sadly, that the United States government, under the leadership of Joe Biden, has helped to cultivate. And I say that, sadly, but I believe it to be true with all of my heart. But there's a war that's taking place right here in the United States, and I believe that it's already begun. We're going to talk about several issues, and honestly, we'll go throughout the entire three hours. They're not necessarily going to be broken up, but we're going to talk about crime right here in the United States. We're going to talk about the border problem. We're going to talk about the problem that is Islamist, Islamicism or Islamism or Islamic Jihad. We're going to talk about all of these issues because I think they're very, very important. But first, let me say this. Let me start off with this. Many of you in the audience or many of you in the listening audience have been taught to believe that diversity is our strength when it comes to America. That is a damn lie. Diversity is not our strength. Diversity will be our downfall. Now, if you're talking about diversity as far as the brain is concerned, that would be one thing. But unfortunately, when it comes to DEI, that's not what we're experiencing today. DEI, diversity, equity, inclusion, CRT, all of that racist bullcrap, that is taking us down. That is identity politics. What that has caused us to do is to divide on issues that we shouldn't be divided against. Let me say this. Even if you are an anti -Semite, even if you are an anti -Semite, even if you're a bigot and you're a despicable person in that sense, in my opinion, we all should be able to agree that when it comes to, let's say, listen, I'm not going to hold any punches. So parents, for those of you parents that are listening in, I'm going to describe some of the things that we know took place in Israel at the hands of Hamas. And so I just want to brace you. And this might be a recurring theme throughout the show. So if you have little ears around, I want you to brace them. I am a Christian, so I will try to watch my mouth, but I'm going to shoot straight with you. I'm going to shoot straight with you. And I believe that you deserve nothing less than for me to shoot straight with you. But we used to believe at least that when it came to, let's say, rape, killing women and children, beheading people, that should be a line that I think we all can agree that we should not cross, right? I think we, at least in the United States of America, we used to believe that those things were evil, right? I mean, anti -Semitism is evil, but we understand that there's going to be bigots if you don't act on your beliefs when it comes to that. Okay, listen, it's a free country. I can't stand you, but it's a free country. But now we seem to have quote unquote Americans that are Hamas sympathizers, that are terrorist sympathizers, and they don't belong here. They don't belong here, in my opinion. They're anti -American. So I'm here to say diversity is not our strength. That's total BS. It's going to be our downfall. And the left is specifically and intentionally focusing on issues that will divide us. This is dangerous. Let me tell you some of the things that should happen. I'm going to talk about, man, I get so much, it's insane. But I'm going to talk about the 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act, how stupid that was and how that's coming to bite us in the butt. Another thing that the Democrats embraced because they were losing the vote, that's part of the reason and why they finally embraced or they tried to leave their racism in the past and tried to project it onto Republicans. So we'll talk about that a little bit. I want to talk about the warfare that is immigration. A lot of people are thinking of war in conventional ways, and we should be, right? We should be on our guard. But I'm going to talk to you about the warfare by immigration, the warfare that is our immigration system, the warfare that is our open borders. Also, I'm going to talk to you about popping caps. We're going to talk about the Second Amendment. We're going to talk about the lies that the Vice President Kamala Harris was spewing last week when she was in, whatever, the press conference that she gave with the Australian Prime Minister. I got some numbers for you, and the numbers and the things that she were saying were just a complete and utter lie. That lady, I hate to say it because I don't want to be mean, but the truth of the matter is that lady is dumber than a box of rocks, and she has no business being Vice President of the United States. Now, Joe Biden is almost equally as dumb, but I don't even think he's as dumb as her, despite the fact that, in my opinion, the man has dementia. This is one of these left -wing people and Vice President Kamala Harris that has literally, I believe, been trained up in some of her thinking without really thinking about it, if you will. Let me tell you where we should start when it comes to immigration, and we'll get into this, and we'll get into the war by immigration. We'll get into this nonsense about the Australian buyback program and how it allegedly saved lives and reduced the numbers of gun ownership. All of this is a complete and utter lie. That's all the left do. They lie, they lie, they lie, they lie while they destroy the country. And if you hate America and if you're pro -Palestinian, which means pro -Hamas, I can't stand you behind, and I hope you leave the country. Move to Gaza. I hear there's an excellent fireworks show happening there right now that you could be a part of. All right, so merit -based immigration. I want to talk about that. Merit -based immigration. We need to move back to a merit -based immigration, and this is very important. This is crucial for our survival. Sadly, I don't think any American president has done it effectively in quite some time. We had a moratorium, and then with the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, we destroyed that, and we began to destroy America. Democrats began to destroy America. Here's where we should be. Here's what we should be doing. All right, so currently, as it stands right now, we allow 1 .1, approximately 1 illegal, .1 I'm sorry, legal immigrants into the country annually. All right, we're going to have to change that makeup due to what Joe Biden has done, the open borders, because I'm telling you, guys, there's a war of immigration that is taking place. And while we sit here and we watch for, we wait for the beheadings and we wait for the mass shootings and all of this kind of stuff, I'm telling you, we are already at war. And China is at the helm. A lot of these countries in the Middle East, exception being Israel, are useful idiots for China. They don't realize that yet, but they will someday. They will someday. Russia also, they will someday. They'll realize it that they're useful idiots for China. But currently we allow in, again, approximately 1 .1 legal immigrants into the United States. The makeup of that is going to have to change. We'll talk about that. And I'm sorry, I think there's going to have to be a moratorium on that. At the very least, I believe we're going to have to cut those numbers in half until we can control the immigration process that doesn't seem to exist right now. I mean, these open borders are absolutely scary to me. This is the biggest threat. This is the biggest threat hitting the United States of these things. I've talked about how the left is trying to depopulate America. Perhaps I'll reintroduce you to that to some extent, but our open borders is a war that is being waged on us. And sadly, we have a United States government under the leadership of a Joe Biden that is participating. And it's sad. So that's going to have to be cut down. I want either that number cut in half, or I want a total moratorium for seven to 10 years. We'll be talking about that after the break. I got some other recommendations that need to happen right away when it comes to the border, if we're going to start saving this country. But we need some strong men and women that are willing to do it. Carl Jackson and for Dennis Prager, we'll be back in a few. Gold dealers are a dime a dozen. They're everywhere. What sets these companies apart and whom can you really trust? This is Dennis Prager for AmFed Coin and Bullion, my choice for buying precious metals. When you buy precious metals, it's imperative that you buy from a trustworthy and transparent dealer that protects your best interests. So many companies use gimmicks to take advantage of inexperienced gold and silver buyers. Be cautious of brokers offering free gold and silver or brokers that want to sell you overpriced collectible coins, claiming they appreciate more than gold and silver. What about hidden commissions and huge markups? Nick Grovitch and his team at AmFed always have your back. I trust this man. That's why I mentioned him by name. Nick's been in this industry over 42 years, and he's proud of providing transparency and fair pricing to build trusted relationships. If you're interested in buying or selling, call Nick Grovitch and his team at AmFed Coin and Bullion, 800 -221 -7694. Americanfederal .com, Americanfederal .com. All right, welcome back to The Dennis Prager Show. Such an honor to be sitting behind Dennis's microphone. I mean, I adore the man. He's absolutely brilliant, and we all should look up to him, frankly. Hat tip Breitbart, the Pentagon says the U .S. military launched airstrikes early Friday on two locations in eastern Syria linked to Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps. So the U .S. strikes Iran linked sites in Syria in retaliation for the attacks on U .S. troops earlier or last week. Isn't this amazing? Isn't this amazing? So the U .S. military launched airstrikes early Friday on two locations in eastern Syria linked to Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps, the Pentagon said, in retaliation for a slew of drone and missile attacks against U .S. bases and personnel in the region that began early last week. Man, I wonder if they could have afforded those drones had Biden not paid for them. Isn't it amazing how we've come full circle with the disaster that was the Afghanistan withdrawal, with the Taliban now running Afghanistan, $85 billion approximately in military equipment that we left behind that could be reverse engineered by China, were the Taliban to sell it to China, and let's assume that they did. I mean, it's phenomenal. It's amazing. We wouldn't be in the predicament that we are in were it not for Biden and the Democrats that voted for Joe Biden. And yes, I'm going to say that often. I'm going to say that loudly. If you're wondering what's happening around the world, if you're seeing what appears to be, I mean, the beginning steps, Lord willing, I hope that I'm wrong. I hope this does just end up being a move between Israel and Iran and their proxies in Hamas and Hezbollah. But let's not be naive. There's going to be a lot of leaders around the world that are looking at this decrepit dementia patient that are in the White House and they're saying, now is the time to make my move. And we have to wonder if those moves are not only going to reshift political allies and adversaries around the globe. It's insane. We simply don't know what's going to happen. But I can tell you what we need to do to start protecting our own border and to get ready for the fight. By the way, we'll be sharing as well, if I can get to ways that you need to prepare for a terrorist attack, because it's going to happen. And again, I think there's a war that is already being waged. I want to be clear, an unconventional war of sorts, where the ground troops are amassing their soldiers around us. And we have an administration in the White House that is fully complicit. Either they're stupid or they're complicit. Either way, we're very, very important. There's a piece, too, that I'm going to want to share by Ann Coulter. She wrote a fabulous piece last week. But I do want to get back to this immigration issue, because I believe it's important. Girl, are you a racist? Are you a bigot? No. No. I'm an American. I'm an American. Guys, we're not a nation of immigrants. This diversity, equity, inclusion, bullcrap. We're a nation of diversity. We're strengthened by diversity. That's all bullcrap that a lot of these college elites that have taught many of their students that have come through that don't have real world experience. That's just total bullcrap. All right. I'm sorry. Diversity does not make America stronger. Diversity makes America weaker. Diversity and thought and thinking, sure, where we can debate, go back and forth. That's not what the left is talking about. They love their people groups. They love the LGBTQ barbecue community. They love dividing men and women. You name it. They love dividing people because the left loves chaos. And what happens is, and sadly, we're starting to see this occur within the Republican Party, too. It's gotten so divisive within the Republican Party. I'm not even sure that we can win 2024. A lot of ignoramuses within the Republican Party. I'm so tempted to leave. You cannot believe it. But I'm not even convinced that we want to win 2024, to be frank with you. But said having that, we've gotten so divided, so divided that we're giving the elites exactly what they want. And so I'm like, can we at least unite here? We need to seal up these freaking borders. I'm sorry. I appreciate that there's a lot of people that want to come to America legally, but you're going to have to be punished because of the sins of the Biden administration letting people in illegally. So we've got 1 .1 approximately million people coming into this country. Every year, I want to ramp that back. I want that cut in half or I want a moratorium. And frankly, I would prefer a moratorium on illegal immigration, 7 or 10 years, whatever it takes us to make up this amount. And I want the people that have come in in the last couple of years deported. Full stop. Full stop. All right, for the Ilhan Omar's and all these people that think America is evil, why the hell would you want people to come to this country if it's so evil? Except that there's a plan. I want the visa overstays. They need to be deported. That's something that a lot of people don't consider. But even visa overstays, that's a way in which a lot of people come into this country. They stay in this country. We don't search for them in places like Australia, New Zealand. If you're there on a visa, a work visa of any sort, the day that your visa is up or perhaps the day before, they are knocking at your door, making sure that you're packing and ready to leave. We need to do the same thing. I really don't give a flip what your skills are at this point. I really don't. I really don't. Merit -based job -related reasons. When Trump was in office, this is one of the things that Trump said he wanted to do, unfortunately. And I got to find the quote. He literally said at the time, this is something we could work on after the 2020 election. Unfortunately, the left beat him to it. That is why when you have power, when you're in office, you better use it. You don't wait for jack crap. You use it. You use it. We can never make those mistakes again. The executive orders, great. We need legislation. And you use that power and you twist ankles, you twist knuckles, you twist elbows, you do whatever you got to do to use power. That is the difference between the right and the left. The right is willing to wait for elections, but the left, even when they lose elections, they seem to win because their agenda always moves forward. It's amazing to me. But at the time, Trump said, listen, this merit -based thing, when it comes to job -related reasons, let's grow that right now. 12 % of the people come into this country that's merit -based, job -related reasons. Let's jump that up to 57%. And I do appreciate that. We didn't get it done. We should have gotten it done. Family -based immigration currently makes up two -thirds of all immigration. That would need to decrease sadly, maybe to one -third. And again, I would prefer a moratorium, but at least we got to start somewhere. When it comes to asylum or diversity visas, they would have to be decreased by more than half. Right now, they stand at about 22 % of immigration. That's legal immigration, by the way. That needs to be cut down to 10%, again, with the caveat that I would prefer a full -out moratorium for the next seven to 10 years. It just has to stop. We've learned what diversity is. And unfortunately, what these elites have been telling our children that are going to these elite colleges and universities, and not even just the elites, I don't care if you go to community college nowadays, the stuff that they're teaching in these schools are just loony. And these people are graduating and running our country. This is Carl Jackson in for the great Dennis Prager. We'll be back in a few pretty soon. I got so much more to get to. It's insane. Stay tuned.

A highlight from Michael and Thomas Pack
"Welcome to The Eric Mataxas Show. Have you heard that some people have a nose for news? Well, Eric has a nose for everything. That's why this is called The Show About Everything. Now welcome your host, who definitely passes the smell test, Eric Mataxas. Hey there, folks. Welcome to the show. It's The Eric Mataxas Show. I play the role of Eric Mataxas. In this show, which is nonfiction, I interview people, usually on subjects that are close to my heart or that I think are important. Today I'm talking to filmmaker Michael Pack, who's been on this show before, who is responsible for a brilliant documentary called Created Equal, Clarence Thomas in his own words, and other things, and also Michael's son, Thomas Pack. We are going to talk about something that is as close to my heart as anything could be. It's the idea of bringing, let's call them conservative values, although that's just a fancy way of saying truth and reality, into media. It is crucial. People of faith, people of Christian values have dropped the ball on this for, I don't know, about 100 years roughly. So whenever somebody is getting into this game, I want to do everything I can to get to know them and to bring them to you, the audience of this program. So Michael Pack and Thomas Pack, welcome and thank you for being with us today. Thank you for having us on, Eric. It's a pleasure to be back on your show. Well, as you know, Michael, I am hot to trot on the subject of what I just mentioned. Now, you just wrote an article at Real Clear Politics. I want to talk to you about that because you sort of summarize what I was just getting at or you explicate what I was just summarizing. Talk a little bit about that and you can mention upfront as well what Thomas is doing. So lead us into the conversation. Well, you're right. The Real Clear piece, which is a bit long, so I guess I explicate rather than summarize, but it tries to lay out what's happened in the culture war over the last at least 50 years, maybe you're right, closer to 100. And what we can do about it. I mean, the fact is, as everyone knows, the progressive left dominates the culture. And they have at least since the 60s where they announced a long march for the institutions and they said they were going to work to take over first the university and then other cultural institutions, and they have succeeded. But I say, Eric, that it is to their credit. This is a battle of ideas. And especially in the area of film and television, they're fighting for the ideas they believe in. You are quite right that we on our side have failed. They're to be commended for succeeding. They're fighting for what they believe in. I agree with you that what they believe in isn't right. So that's a negative, but they're commended for fighting for it. And over those years, they've built up institutions that supported and defended and make it possible. So I lay that out in the real clear piece, which people can also find on my on my Twitter page, Michael Pack underscore. But so I try to give how so over 50 years, the left has poured tens of billions of dollars into this process, and it is their right to do so. And we ought to say that they have allied themselves with a very powerful ally in the form of Satan. We don't need to we don't need to get more specific than that. But people need to understand that, you know, you're very gracious by saying, oh, they're fighting for their ideas. Their ideas are harmful to human beings, not to conservatives, not to people of faith, to human beings in general. And so you're right that they believe in these ideas. But I just have to say, speaking to you as a Jew, you know, Hitler believed in his ideas. So because somebody believes in their ideas, they get, oh, well, they've got their ideas. We have our ideas. I agree with you 100 percent. I know. No, of course, I know you do. And you're being gracious. So go ahead. But but the but but that's right. I mean, one way of looking at their ideas is they have a negative view of America just taking that one slice of it. And we have a positive, upbeat view of America. I mean, we we are documentary producers, and I think this is this left takeover of culture is both in drama, fiction and nonfiction and in the nonfiction realm. It's clear as a bell. The 1619 Project, which began in print, was now a multi -part Emmy nominated Netflix series. And and on like that is America based on racism and the defense of slavery, or is it based on the principles of the Enlightenment? Jefferson laid out in the Declaration of Independence and it matters for the country and the world which side you're on. So I agree with you. But their ideas are wrong. But given that they're wrong, they're right to fight for them. So we need to fight for ours. But but we have we have the model of what they have done and we need to just do it, too. It is not that hard. It's not that complicated. It was not a conspiracy on the part of the left. They announced they were going to do it. It's their right to do it. And they did it. I mean, I mean, even in America, communists, for example, have every right to promulgate their views, which I think is appropriate, given the First Amendment. It doesn't make their views right, but it does give them the right to promulgate them. And it's well, think of the irony, though, that the left is increasingly I mean, just to be fair, that it is because of biblical values, it is because of the values of the founders of this nation, that people on the left. On the wrong side, have the right, which we have given them to promulgate their views, it is why Nazis could march through Skokie, Illinois. It is right, so we believe in free speech. We believe in this kind of stuff. But the irony is that we're now living in a time where we're seeing the left having gained power, use it to squelch and censor voices with whom they disagree. So in other words, they were willing to ride the train of free speech as long as it helped them. And then now that they've gained the upper hand culturally and in other ways, they're suddenly deciding, you know what, free speech was nice. It was nice for a while. But now we don't want those conservatives to have a voice. So there's an irony here, which ought to be mentioned. There is. They're now the enemies of free speech. And in part, it's because, as you say, it's no longer convenient. But in part, it's because of the radicalization of liberalism, the sort of left liberal part of the Democratic Party. I mean, it used to be since the 60s, the new left has been an enemy of free speech. Herbert Mercuza and company never believed in free speech. But that was a minority view on the left. And now, as you say, it's increasingly popular under other rubrics like stopping disinformation and misinformation. And it is. Do they get that from Stalin? I'm always trying to trace these ideas back. I believe it was the Moscow School of Stalin. In any event, I think, you know, legally, you know, Karl Marx did not believe in human rights and individual rights. And he his whole worldview is opposed to that. If you believe in historical determinism and you know which way the world is going, why encourage freedom of speech? So both left and right, Hegelianism, Marx being left Hegelianism, was not really in favor of these kinds of freedoms, these Enlightenment freedoms. And in a sense, they were a reaction against it. I'm not an expert on this, though. Eric, you're going to get into topics too deep for me pretty soon. Well, obviously, we're not here really to talk about this exactly, but it's worth touching on. Well, look, the good news, the headline to me is that you and Thomas, whom we will let get a word in edgewise momentarily, are creating award winning, fabulous documentary films and trying to encourage others to do the same. It's it really is a wonderful thing, as you and I have discussed. I'm getting involved in that a number of media projects and yours have been done with such extraordinary excellence that, you know, even those on the left have had begrudgingly to honor you when we come back. I want to get into everything and I want to ask you, Thomas, about this kind of conservative incubator film project that that you're putting together. Folks, it's the Eric Metaxas show, ericmetaxas .com. Don't go away. Folks, have I told you about Moink? M -O -I -N -K. That's moo plus oink. I get all our meat and our salmon from them. M -O -I -N -K. Moink delivers grass fed and grass finished beef and lamb, pastured pork and chicken, sustainable wild caught salmon straight to your door.
A highlight from John Amanchukwu (Encore)
"Welcome to the Eric Metaxas Show. We'll get you from point A to point B. But if you're looking for point C, well, buddy, you're on your own. But if you wait right here, in just about two minutes, the bus to point C will be coming right by. And now, here's your Ralph Kramden of the Airways, Eric Metaxas. Hey there, folks. Welcome to the show. We have a guest on who, man, I don't even know how to start. First of all, I'll try to pronounce his name correctly. John Amanchukwu. I got John correct. I think I got Amanchukwu correct. John Amanchukwu is someone I've come to admire tremendously. He's in North Carolina. He is he's been a pastor for years. He is a brave voice in the midst of the madness, one of the bravest voices. And it's my privilege to have him as my guest for this hour. John, welcome. Hey, thank you so much, Dr. Eric, for having me on your show. You can't call me Dr. Eric because I'm not a doctor, but you can call me whatever you want. Could you call me the Commodore or Admiral? I'd prefer I really prefer that. But no, seriously, you you have been such a brave voice and people have seen you, you know, probably on Instagram reels or whatever. Tell my audience, because this is it's always better when my guest tells the story. But you've been a brave voice speaking out against the. What would be a nice term for it, satanic lunacy of. Profoundly sexual material being given to children in our schools, very tough for most of us to believe that this is happening, but it has been happening. You've been exposing it and you've been bravely speaking against it. So let's just start, John, with how did you get involved in this? At what point did you say I'm going to step up and start confronting these crazy abusers? Because that's what they are, abusers of our children. How did that start for you? Well, I've been involved in this kind of work for the past 20 years. I joined a church in college called Upper Room Church for God in Christ. I joined at the age of 19. And the senior pastor is Bishop Patrick Langwood and senior. And he says that our church is a cause driven church. You know, we believe that there is a cause in Christ. There's a cause in the marketplace for us to bring our biblical world view to it, to engage the culture and to fight against evil and wickedness. Isaiah 520 says, woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness. And so we've just been on the front lines on the abortion clinic issue, fighting against fatherlessness and the black community. And now even with this indoctrination in the public school system, now, some people call it indoctrination and some people call it grooming. But I like to call it mental rape. That's the best way for me to define what has taken place in the public school system. I call it mental rape because it assaults the soul. It stains the brain and it robs children of their innocence. When you put pornographic material in a library and make it accessible for kids, K through 12, a child is going to pick that book up. And I went out to Asheville and spoke about a book entitled It's Perfectly Normal. That book is for kids 10 and up. It's hardcore porn. It's not soft porn. It's hardcore porn. That book gives Hugh Hefner a run for his money. When you open the book, it depicts images of heterosexual sex and homosexual sex. Why do 10 year olds need to see and learn how you should have lesbian sex at the age of 10? That's disgusting. That's evil. It's mental rape. There's an assault taking place upon children, and there's a critical point that's being left out of the equation. And that's the church. The church is not engaging. We need some modern day Karl Barth. We need some modern day Martin Niemol. We need some people who are willing to engage the culture and tell the church, listen, we are not supposed to be co -opted by the state. The state is not supposed to run the church. And when we go into a public school, we have this thing called parental choice. Some call it rights, but I call it parental choice. I call it parental choice because our rights come from God as parents. But choice parents have had the choice and the knowledge of being able to assess and know what's going on in the public school system and to have the freedom and the liberty to push back when there is an assault upon their children. Well, listen, everything you say, I mean, I agree with it violently. I am in churches effectively preaching what you just said in a little different way. But what basically this is called, what you are advocating for is called the technical term is Christianity. This is called Christian faith. If you do not do what what you're describing, if you're not pushing back, if you're not being salt and light in the culture, if you're not being a warrior for truth and speaking against evil, then you are not living out your Christian faith. But there are many, many churches and you and I know about that that do not do this. They don't get involved in this. They say we don't want to be divisive. These are the same people that would say, you know, we don't care if there's slavery happening, as long as it's not happening in my church. That's right. It's complete hypocrisy. And as Christians, we are called to step up. And I keep saying that the Lord has allowed it to get this bad to wake up those who are still sleeping, because what you just described is very tough for me and most people, even to hear that children would be exposed to this absolutely evil stuff. What do you call it if you don't call it evil? This is evil for children to be exposed to these kinds of things. And it's shameful that they're just a handful of brave souls like you speaking against it.
Marxism Exposed: The Destructive Agenda to Abolish Religion
"Genesis 11, Nimrod wanted to create the city of Babel to create a one -world government. The aim of the Marxists is to get rid of any differences. Diversity is not the strength of the Marxists. Conformity and elimination of differences is the strength of the Marxists. You must understand, it's the exact opposite of what they tell you. And isn't this true? They don't want any dissenting opinion. They don't want any differences or any dialogue, only uniformity, conformity. It's very totalitarian in nature. And so Karl Marx writes basically this idea that there are people in charge of society and we'll call them the bourgeoisie. You know, one, two, three, go after the bourgeoisie is with a chant. That's not what they say on college campuses. They'll use swear words, right? And the rest of us are the proletariat, the everyday man, the worker. Now, he came after this mostly through economic lens. That this was people owning the factories and people working in the factories and it's not fair. Now, this was basically him equipping the everyday rank and file with a playbook of how to criticize and how to attack any power structure. So fast forward, an obscure writer from prison in Italy, many of you know him, Antonio Gramsci, wrote this whole idea that we Marxists, we can't just have economic struggle, revolution against the factory owners, we need to have cultural struggle. That what Marx laid out was a rebellion not just against the rich, but a rebellion against anybody in power, including God himself.
The Demonic Influence of Marxist Ideology
"Karl Marx in the mid 1800s wrote a couple books that many of you may or may not be familiar with, Communist Manifesto and Das Kapital. Karl Marx also had some involvement in the occult. There's a whole great amount of literature there. But basically, Karl Marx took demonic ideology and ideas from the enemy that all that God created must be challenged and must be criticized. In fact, direct quote from Marxist writings. You must engage in the ruthless criticism of all that exists. Said simply, Marxists are trained, and this is what happens when you send kids to college, to deconstruct, to pick apart, to complain against anything that exists. And that includes the natural law and the natural order. Now, you're probably starting to connect some dots. Like, oh, well, that makes sense. That's why they're always trying to go after why what is a man and what is a woman. Now, I believe that if the American church spoke more about the first 11 books of Genesis, we'd be in a much better place. I believe that there are eternal answers to so many of our problems in the first 11 books of Genesis that the modern cool kid, the skinny gene church, does not like talking about. They say, oh, it's allegorical. It's the word of God. It's the truth. Now, in the first 11 books of Genesis, the distinctions that our entire existence rely upon are set up. I mentioned this briefly yesterday. The distinctions between God and man, the distinctions between holy and profane, the distinctions between man and woman, the distinctions between good and evil, the distinctions between man and nature, the distinctions between God and nature. So let's focus on that one. Every ancient false pagan religion before Judaism, before the Torah and eventually Christianity, God was in nature, not above nature. You worship the river. You worship the sun. You worship the mountain. This idea that God spoke nature into existence was unheard of in the ancient world. Now, these distinctions are important because that's where we get very basic morality.
A highlight from Our Only Hope and Comfort
"Please be seated. Our scripture lesson from this morning is from 1 Peter chapter 3 verse 8 through 7. Finally, all of you be of one mind, having compassion for one another, love as brothers, be tenderhearted, be courteous, not returning evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary, blessing, knowing that you were called to this, that you may inherit the blessing. For he who would love life and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit. Let him turn away from evil and do good. Let him seek peace and pursue it, for the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are open to their prayers, but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil. And who is he who will harm you if you become followers of what is good? But even if you should suffer for righteousness' sake, you are blessed, and do not be afraid of their threats nor be troubled. But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you. With meekness and fear, having a good conscience, that when they defame you as evildoers, those who revile your good conduct in Christ may be ashamed. For it is better, if it is the will of God, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil. This is the word of the Lord. Thanks be to God. In the history of theology, you had the birth of liberalism somewhere in the 1700s, where the it became search of the theologian to find what parts of the Bible were the word of God and which were not. According to liberals, the Bible was the record of man searching for God, not God's revelation to man. But in there, somewhere, there were legitimate truths, and you had to kind of ferret them out and find them, and so you had a canon in a canon that they would give to you. They would tell you the parts of the Bible that were inspired, and not surprisingly, it was the parts that whatever spirit of the age was, those were the parts that were inspired. Then there came a man called Barth, Karl Barth, who dropped a bomb on liberalism with his commentary on Romans, and he seemed to be saying that all of the Bible is actually inspired by an actual God, and it's all true. His new theology was called neo -orthodoxy. Orthodoxy means right glory, and it refers to when you rightly believe what God has given you in relation taught you in the word. Barth was called neo -orthodoxy, new orthodoxy. The reason it was called new was because Barth wasn't quite what he seemed. Barth used theological language that comes directly from the Bible, but Barth would fill up the language with other meaning, so that when Barth talked about the resurrection, you weren't really sure if he actually meant somebody came out of a tomb, or if he were talking about a philosophical or intellectual kind of concept that didn't have anything to do with dead bodies actually coming out of tombs and such. Flash forward to some 30 years ago, and I'm sitting in a seminary classroom studying the history of the evangelical movement, and the professor is talking about theology, but he's doing it from a Barthian kind of perspective. As I halfway listen, because quite frankly at this point I'm kind of zoning out and thinking about other things, but as I'm halfway listening, it occurred to me that this word game he was playing, this using biblical language but filling it with other meaning, could be a rather dangerous kind of thing because I'm actually alive, I'm an actual person, and I actually kind of care about what's going to happen in the future, especially concerning me. As the professor continued to drone on, I raised my hand and I asked a question and said, if I'm not mistaken, you're defining these things in psychological terms, really. Sanctification is not divine influence on the soul so much as it is growing in maturity in a much more natural kind of way. Conversion isn't really a change of the soul, it's maturity. Well, what about death? And the professor went, ah, what about death? Death is the leading psychological concept that is driving the evangelical movement. Evangelicals are a reaction to coming death, and I raised my hand again and said, yeah, but what about death? I'm actually a living person, I think, therefore I am. Some would say I sort of think, therefore I partly are, but I do, I think, I am, I exist. There's going to come a time where my body will cease. So what do your concepts have to say to me? And the professor said, well, really nothing. We don't actually know what happens when a person dies. There might be some sort of supernatural reality. There might not either. Theology can't really help you with that. This is all psychological constructs in the mind. Death is a symbol, and I said, I'm not a symbol, I really kind of care what happens next. Will I be or will I not be? With such language, we have entered into the realm of the definition of the Bible's word hope. Hope is an interesting quality. It's one of the big three. If you know that famous passage from 1 Corinthians chapter 13, you know that now they abide three things. They continue on forever. These three things are faith and love. But in the middle of them is hope. These three things remain, faith, hope, and love. They seem to be the big virtues into which everything else can be plugged, and you find that trinity of virtues several places. The apostle Paul, when he talks to the Thessalonian church, the first thing he says to them is, we give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers, remembering without ceasing your work of faith, your labor of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ in the sight of our God and Father, knowing, beloved brother, and your election by God. So Paul would say to the people in the church at Thessalonica, I know you're chosen, and the reason why I know you're chosen is because you have faith, love, and hope. In fact, when he writes to the church at Colossae, he again brings up this big three, and it's interesting where he places hope, writing to the Colossians. We give thanks to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you, since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus, and of your love for all the saints, and this is the interesting part, because of the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, of which you heard before in the word of the truth, the gospel. So, if you go looking for it all over the New Testament, the apostle sums up the Christian life in these three terms, and here, where does faith come from? Well, it seems to rest on hope. Where does love come from? It seems to rest on hope. Faith justifies, you're saved by faith alone. Love is said to be the big one of the three. Now there remain three things, faith, hope, and love, and the last of that verse is, but the greatest of these is love, so love is certainly the highest. But in Colossians, hope is generative. Where does faith come from? Well, partly, it comes from hope. Where does love come from? Well, at least partly, it comes from hope. What is hope? It is not what we mean usually when we use the term. In English parlance, if I say, I hope it won't rain tomorrow, I am not conveying any sort of major assurance, I'm expressing a desire of the will. You know, it'd be really nice if the event we had tomorrow wasn't rained out, so I hope it doesn't rain. The biblical word doesn't have anything to do with that at all. It's kind of like when we've taken the word grace and turned it into, she moves in a very pretty way. That woman has great grace, which usually means she's a good dancer. Doesn't have anything to do with the biblical term. Well, here, hope is an absolute assurity. It is something that in your spirit, you are convinced of and it lays hold of everything you are, and you're kind of built on this assurance. One might ask how this is different than faith, and if you do, you find out that faith and hope are deeply related. It becomes hard to pull them apart as a concept, but they are not completely synonymous, and the difference seems to be when you boil it down, faith looks back. There is something that has happened that gives you an assurance and a trust, and you look into the past and you say, I know that happened, therefore I am trusting. Whereas, hope is looking towards the future and saying, because of my assurance, I can have assurance that the future is going to be good. This hope fires forward in time, and it really doesn't have an end point. Hope, if it is hope, has to pass every end point we can muster. This week in my classes, I asked my students to define the term nihilism. Not many of them could. In fact, many of them had not heard of the term, which is surprising, because most philosophies that govern our current society are in fact nihilistic. Nihilism is a philosophy that says you were eternally not present in the past. There was a poet when you were born, yes, but there's going to come a time when you die, and when you die, since there is nothing but the world of matter, when you die, it's going to be like when you didn't exist. You're going to not exist again, and effectively, it is infinite into the past, and it is infinite into the future, and you have had at most maybe 70, perhaps 80 years to do and be and feel and think, but honestly, it don't mean nothing, because you're nothing in the beginning, you're nothing in the end, and really, nothing you do lays any significance for anything or anybody, so therefore, there is literally no meaning to be had in the world. If meaning exists, it has to be something that you invent as your own construct, because there is no objective meaning. Nihilism is kind of all the rage in academic circles. If you have only naturalism, then you have nihilism, logically. Nihilism is the opposite of this hope. Christian hope is an assurance that things will get better in the future, and it does not stop at death. The apostle Paul said, if we had only hope in Christ for this life, if Christ had not been raised and death was the end, he says, and he is a writer of Christian scripture, it is written in the Holy Covenant, if that was the only hope we had, we'd have no hope at all. We would be of all men to be most pitied. That is not what Christian hope is. Christian hope is that in coming future ages, infinitum, things will get better because there is an assurance that God will make it better, or in the words of the scripture that I read just a moment ago, there is stored up for you something in heaven, something in the eternity of eternities that will be yours forever. You will exist beyond your physical death here. Things will get better in the future. That is hope.
We're Still Here After Many 'Government Shutdowns'
"On a plan budget that would start from zero zero -based budgeting he called he had problems from Democrats and he shut down the government a lot total of 60 days out of four years that then the great Ronald Reagan comes in Congress wants to spend money everything on but defense 1981 he shuts down the government for two days in November 1982 he shut down the government for one day September 30 to October 2 again 1982 December he shuts it down three more days 1983 shuts it down three days 1984 shuts it down two days 1984 again later shuts it down one day 1986 he shuts it down one day 1987 he shuts it down one day Here we are America. The federal government's been shut down about 80 days until that point can you imagine? Clinton George H .W. Bush shuts it down for three days 1990 in Bill Clinton shuts it down for five days in 1995 95 facing 1996 Clinton off with Newt Gingrich they shut it down for three weeks Guardians George H .W. Bush advised by Karl Rove the other lightweights never vetoed a spending bill never shut down the government and spending went through the roof you
A highlight from He's Fired!! (We Had No Choice)
"So, Ryan said that if we were one second late for the morning call, then you're kicked out of the research group and you basically can't ever come back. There's no redemption. Wait, am I allowed to swear? Yeah, I'm allowed to swear. This place is full of shit, bro. You ask and if you ask, there's no way back into the call. There's just no way back. It's finished. So if you get kicked out on the morning call, you're not coming back. So I don't care who you are. I don't care whether you're the host or not a host, we're now making this call live at quarter past. We expect everybody on at quarter past. If you're not on by 20 past, you're out and if you're out, you ain't coming back in. We need to show up on time. We need to show up prepared and the one thing I'm not going to tolerate is people arriving at the morning call as passengers. People arriving at the morning call with no alpha and no value add, just thinking that they'll sit there and comment. I don't accept that shit. If you're not here at quarter past nine, you have five minutes to get on and get the legs. If not, you're out and if you're out, you ain't coming back. We are all there at a certain time every single day and we expect that everyone arrive on time and prepared. So, I mean, I made a rule now because people kept coming late, certain people, I'm not going to mention names. So the morning call is the whole team jumping on in the morning and preparing what's the top news, what's the top coins and I think a lot of people work here just to be on that morning call and this is because of me. I couldn't find the link, I was seven minutes late and now I am in shit. That's it. If you're not there five minutes after the call starts, you're out and once you're out, there's no way back into the call. Don't tell him, but I was 14 minutes late today. I don't think he noticed, so we'll see. Thank you if you are. Thank you if you're Kyle, Sheldon, Rand, Miles, I don't give a shit if you are. Anyway, let's carry on. In the military, there are people getting on. You see a few NBA players, you see a few pretty big gamers. It's too hard to use. I mean, if I lost like $20 worth of ease trying to do it, believe me, people have lost a lot more. Yeah, there's problems. We have major technical issues, as usual. I don't know what to do. I'm serious. Do I just go live like this? I'm luminescent. What else am I supposed to do? This is fun. It's important. We've got to do it. I don't know what to do. This thing is like we already meant to have started two minutes ago. And now Alistair's frothing here with excitement that there's problems. Look at him, salivating like a bloody Kardashian cameraman. Hi, Rand. We're having trouble with the green screen, getting it set. We're doing that thing where it's either the host or the green screen. Can I be adjusted your colour, your green for the preview? Yes. Preview. Wait, there we're back. We clicked preview. It worked. Now, on the black magic card, press the find button. On this thing? Yeah. That one? Yes, press that button. Okay, I'm there. It worked. Well done. You're a genius. This is why you own this company. He's not impressed. He's having his breakfast and matcha and we're late. What can we do? Guys, let's just quickly close off over here. Remember, we do have the morning call as well, which is right now. That is on the Banta Bubbles chart, the newsroom. You can go there. Sign in right now. The call has just begun. It's capped to, I think it's 500. So make sure that you jump in. I see someone says that Karl's going to be late. Yes, I'm going to be late. I'm still on the show. I'm paranoid if I'm late. I'm out. That's where you can hear Rand shouting at people. So if you find that a good time, then make sure you join. There is also a lot of alpha in the group. I've got a problem with it. The problem is that you're not accountable in any element. The language is done. I don't get my translations. The influencer campaign is two weeks old. I can't get involved in it. I just need results. Just need results. I can't get involved in the process. Can't get involved in managing the resources. That's what you need to be doing. So I've given you four things. Now you need to focus on those four things. One, the tech must work. No bullshit, no downtime. Make sure the tech works. You've had millions to know on this tech. No bullshit, no downtime. The ability to patch guests in seamlessly during the show is important. Can't carry on in the middle of the show, interrupting the show, not being able to share screens, audio is not coming through. That needs to be fixed like now. Your responsibilities are very simple. The tech in this office must always work. Must be seamless. I called me in, gave me more work and less time and layered through the deliverables and just basically said that none of the tech should ever give a problem ever again. And it's quite hard to agree to something like that because that's not how tech works. I don't need to know the process. I don't need to know the issues. Everyone else here gets their job done. They manage the resources to get the job done. I'm expecting the same from you. Okay? If I risk doing it and I mess it up, it's a big thing. So I need to get someone who's got the knowledge and has the experience to do it. It's a nice statement, but it's not possible. In some situations it's not. All I do is kid -shadow them and how hard I push on both sides. Is that just the reality of life? It's the reality of life. I don't hear it from anybody else. I don't hear it from you. I don't take it personally. I find as a teacher it's fascinating to learn, but if you're looking for compliments and you feel uplifted in your life, go somewhere else. 100%. And when we're doing this, is our life a reality show? Yes. Seriously, I'm going to be on a weekly reality show. Give them cocktails. You're going to do good stuff. You're going to get compliments, bro. No. Once a year. Give them cocktails. Life will get bad on you. James has had a very tough day. Nothing that a good cappuccino and what we call in South Africa, I've been here for a long time. I've been driving shows. I've been doing pretty much whatever. My job has evolved into pretty much everything here. I'm bored of driving shows. I've finally been off shows. I'm doing projects now. Projects for Cryptobancer. So influencer marketing, translating the languages, moving our broadcasting system over, then not only that, I've been keeping up with all of my stuff, following up on everything every day, but I've also been getting knocked out every day. Also getting a little bit of shit every day. But I also know from being here a long time, sitting here and arguing and making excuses doesn't help either of us. Long -term portfolio. Long -term portfolio. Yeah, it's more higher time frame for your stuff. Yeah, fair, fair. So long -term stuff, bro. So I'm going to help them build the ultimate portfolio. You know how I do that soldier sort of mechanism of understanding the different levels that your altcoins should be inserted into your long -term portfolio. So it's higher time frame portfolio plus strategies and you're preparing them mentally for the bull market and how they're going to act on it and what they're going to do when it comes, et cetera. Okay. Thank you. How long are you going to be? Not more than an hour. No more than an hour. It never stops, no? Working on the run is like, it is really, really, really hard. Some people can... If you don't do something right, you don't stay in your lane, you're going to get hit on hard. A lot of people can't take that. A lot of people will leave. I've seen many people come in and out of these doors that can't hold the pressure. He is a top businessman. He is a man that's savage in his industry and you've got to give him respect. There's a very small percentage of the planet that's got a nice vibe he has. JAMES' TROUBLE James, are you in trouble again? When am I not in trouble? James is always in trouble. Always. James is trouble. We had the disco moment, remember? Last week when Ranz Lightz went on and off five times. It happened again this morning for Kyle's show. But yeah. He didn't shit again. James is going to get fired. Look, I know it's tough here. This is a high performance environment. But if we're going to achieve our objectives, we can only have a high performance environment. But it's my responsibility to make sure that we are executing according to our vision. And our vision is to build a billion dollar business in less than three years. And to me, as I say, culture is the most important thing in a business. It's what separates good businesses from bad businesses. And I won't let the culture of this place decline. It's just not something that I'll do. I won't compromise on culture ever. It took me 17 years to build a $150 million business. I've done it before. This time it's actually about changing people's lives. And if you look at every single person that I work with here, they'll tell you their lives have changed. I don't think anybody's going to complain in three years when they're sitting on their yachts sipping on margaritas. They won't complain anymore. It's a single swim. That's all. So, Rand always striving for success. I think that's very, very good. That's the perfect leader that we need. Yeah, he's an incredible human, incredible business person. And his work ethic is unparalleled. So, I look up to that. I see him as a mentor. Because, I mean, I thought I worked hard. He has four kids and he still works harder than me, which is just mind -blowing. It's insane. So, yeah. What are you talking about? Yeah, so, obviously, Do's been under me and, like, within the business. He's been running the live training sessions. He was very, very afraid of being behind camera in the beginning. But I just had this feeling that he had to get his ass behind cameras. And I think he's more than just doing my charts on Discord. I think he should have a show. I think he will annihilate in the pool. Like, he's really good. But I feel a lot of our hosts are going to struggle in the pool. I think they do well in this market. I don't think they're going to do well. And I think we've got a channel that we're wasting. The fact that we don't have daily shows there. I think we're going to rebrand the channel, the other channel. I think I'm actually leaning towards Banter Plus. Because I think Banter Plus just says everything it needs to say. It's like, it's the better channel, it's plus, it's additional. Plus, it's the better channel. Yeah. If it says Banter Plus, if you're making a step -style channel, people aren't going to watch it. People don't watch the second league. People don't watch Formula 2. People don't watch. People want to watch the best. I promise you, bro. I'm going to move my show. I'm going to move my show to another channel. Soon. Rebrand and move. It's too much of a move. I'll do it when there's movement in the market and there's a full cycle. I'm going to jump. So you want two main channels? Sure. Why? What do I gain if I don't do it? I've got a channel. I've got two amazing channels instead of one. We'll rebrand a channel. Then you can try another show there. But you know, if you get onto the show, you sign a contract, because we don't want to build stars here that don't compete with us. Wait, you know. You know where my loyalty is. I know where your loyalty is. You know what they say. When you marry your wife, you're marrying your best friend. When you're getting divorced, you're getting divorced from the wicked witch of Eastbeck, bro. You can't even talk to her when you're getting divorced. That's what you've got to plan for. You know what I mean? We do have one. We do have one quick problem, and I need the banter fans' help with it, okay? Especially this sniper army. Run is considering his maybe, because we have a second channel coming up. Maybe Dylan should have his own show. So what I want you to do, I want you to go to Run's show today, and I want you to spam the shit out of the comments and say, Dylan must get a show. Dylan must get a show. Dylan must get a show. I love these altcoins. I just love these labels. I love these foods. I mean, I'm doing this stuff every day, and I'm so happy to share it with you every day. We're going to basically park there to pay, so you're going to have two powerhouses driving to one run. Yeah, that's the difference here, because a lot of people aren't there. What you do in the background is your deal. You guys are going so much at the end of it. You're not going to come... I just want to make sure that he has a show and that you... For as long as your show is growing and you have a lot of community... You think I'm good enough to have a show. I don't want to come here and sell one. more So, exactly, this is my point. I was always a reluctant presenter. So Ryan pulled me into the office. We were talking about the show and everything and the possibility of me getting one. It's not something I was always pushing and chasing myself, so it was quite strange to me when he told me I'm potentially not good enough. So, I mean, there is a difference between show business, obviously, and the content work that I do. I know my content is 10 out of 10. I'm not the most exciting or charismatic presenter, but I think I can get better. And I think I can prove him wrong. Yeah, so people want to know if I'm good enough or not. You just need to come look at my charts, really. I mean, look at this tweet. When everyone is getting all depressed, I said to them, Pump town coming for render even though there's a death cost, okay? Look at this. Bang. Perfect. Absolute perfection. Into the trend. TP time. We're out of this trade. Look at this one. Oil. Everyone was so bullish on oil. We got the short lie. We traded this oil completely live on the channel. Look at Rune. Called a short on the live into a banging resistance zone. I mean, there it is right there. Look at this camp. Looking so sad. Rune's coming down right to this zone here. At least 1 .4. Maybe even down there. So, it's all happening in here all the time. Just come look at my charts. They're here in the Discord as well. Look at this. Look at this DYDX. We said it's breaking through resistance. It was a big resistance zone. Looking for support to develop. Look at that. Bang. Now we're going to short this thing. So, you decide. Is my work good enough? I don't know. We'll find out. I like Dylan. Dylan I've known for a long time. In fact, Dylan's wife and my wife are actually very good friends. That's how we met. And when we moved into Banta, I brought him along for the ride. Because I just knew we'd find a spot for him. Now, the ball is in his court. We're giving him the screen. We're giving him the platform. And now he has to perform. And it's kind of cute to see how stressed he gets. Because Dylan's skin -haired beard. And now he's shitting himself in front of the camera. So, it's actually quite fun to watch it happen. We'll obviously support him. I want him to succeed. When you get to 50 shots, that's a lot better if you didn't have to have a phone. You want to embarrass him? Let me show you how embarrassing my first shoot was, bro. This is the first time I ever did fucking live. Live fucking TV, bro. I do really love you. Good luck. Good luck to 50 years. Welcome to Crypto Trader at the World's Best. How bad is this? How bad is this? This is basically true. I am Crypto Man Ryan. And I'll be your host. How bad is this? I'll be your host. You're a mess. I want you. I want you. I want you. I don't want you. I'm so bad. Just for everyone, I know how tough it is making content at this time when shit's happening. And when it's getting more and more and more boring. I'm starting to get my momentum back, which is why I think I'm going to cancel my career trip because I just can't afford a disruption in momentum. I think we need to use this time to build because you're like two green candles on Bitcoin and you know what happens, everyone's going to rush back. When that happens, a lot of changes are going to happen in this business. So the first bit of content we're going to do is Dylan's going to have a show. We're going to finalize all the agreements here, but Dylan will have his show.
175 Years Ago, Five Women Brewed the Women's Movement
"175 years ago last month, five women or four Quakers and a Calvinist Presbyterian had tea together. They talked and sipped tea. Then they talked some more and sipped more tea. The hot topic was their freedom from the absolute social, economic, and political iron cage of the patriarchy the good women found themselves in. This urgent dialogue arose contemporaneously with the emerging global theories of German sociologist, historian, jurist, and political economist, Maximilian Karl Emil Weber, and what would later become a body of work on theories of rationalization and the question of individual freedom in an increasingly rational society. And as the good women came upon the bottom of the final pot of tea, the pitch of the dialogue led to a resolution. The good women would establish a public convention of women and men to address the serious matter of inequality women faced around the world and around the country. They knew that their first step would be to gather a critical mass. Inside of two weeks, the good women took out advertisements in the local newspaper inviting the public to assemble to discuss and debate the social, civil, and religious condition of women. And then they held a two -day convention to take up the issues concerning women's rights. This moment borne the formal genesis of the women's rights movement in the United States. On Wednesday, July 19, 1848, in Seneca Falls, New York, much was discussed the first day among the female -only invited audience. The critical mass of good women met in the morning and again in the afternoon. Through a democratic voting process, they accomplished an agreement, draft, and revision of the document Elizabeth Cady Stanton authored called the Declaration of Sentiments, modeled after the Constitution of the United States. They held a spirited debate on the propriety of men as signatories of the Declaration, and they formally debated and adopted the following resolutions. Here is a close paraphrase of the 11 resolutions. Where the great precept of nature is conceded to be that man should pursue his own true and substantial happiness, Blackstone and his commentaries remarks that this law of nature, being coval with mankind and dictated by God himself, is of course superior in obligation to any other. It's binding all over the globe in all countries and at all times. No human laws are of any validity if it's contrary to this, and such of them as are valid derive all of their force and all of their validity and all of their authority immediately and immediately from this original. Therefore, we resolve that such laws as conflict in any way with the true and substantial happiness of women are contrary to the great precept of nature and of no validity, for this is superior in obligation to any other. We also resolve that all laws which prevent women from occupying such a station in society as her conscious shall dictate or which places her in a position inferior to man are contrary to the great precept of nature and therefore of no force or authority. We resolve that woman is man's equal and tended to be so by the creator and the highest good of the race demands that she should be recognized as such. We resolve that the women of this country ought to be enlightened in regard to the laws under which they live that they may no longer publish their degradation by declaring themselves satisfied with their present position, not their ignorance by asserting that they have all the rights they want. We resolve that in as much as man while claiming for himself intellectual superiority does accord to women moral superiority, it is preeminently his duty to encourage her to speak and teach as she has an opportunity in all religious assemblies. We resolve that the same amount of virtue delicacy and refinement of behavior that is required of women in the social state should also be required of man and the same transgressions should be visited with equal severity on both man and woman. We resolve that woman has too long rested satisfied and the circumscribed limits which corrupt customs and a perverted application of the scriptures have marked out for her and that it is time she should move into the enlarged sphere which her great creator has assigned her. We resolve that it is the duty of the women of this country to secure to themselves their sacred right to the elective franchise. We resolve that the equality of human rights results necessarily from the fact of the identity of the race and capabilities and responsibilities. And we resolve that being invested by the creator with the same capabilities and the same consciousness of responsibility for their exercise, it is demonstrably the right and duty of woman equally with man to promote every righteous cause by every righteous means and especially in regard to the great subjects of morals and religion. It is self -evidently her right to participate with her brother in teaching them both in private and in public by writing and by speaking by any instrumentalities proper to be used and in any assemblies proper to be held and this being a self -evident truth growing out of the divinely implanted principles of human nature any custom or authority adverse to it whether modern or wearing the hoary sanction of antiquity is to be regarded as self -evident falsehood and at war with the interests of mankind.
A highlight from 222: Stay Engaged, Show Mutual Respect, Stay in the Picture
"Dr. Alan Laika here and I'd like to welcome you to how to live a fantastic life show where we will be discussing the important aspects of your life. We hope to inspire you to live the best life you can. Get out of your comfort zone and explore the awesome world around you. Break through your barriers. Take inspired action. Use the difficulties in your life to achieve the best version of you. Ladies and gentlemen, my next guest is Karl Picard who is a noted psychologist, speaker, parenting expert and now he's retired from private counseling practice. He received his BA and MED from Harvard University and his PhD from the University of Texas at Austin. He is a member of the American and Texas psychology associations. He writes a popular parenting advice column for Psychology Today and has written some of the most practical and helpful books about parenting including The Connected Father, Stop the Screaming, The Future of Your Only Child and Why Good Kids Act Cruel. He's a prolific author and he continues to write three distinct books about illustrated psychology, of coming -of -age fiction and of non -fiction parenting advice, Holding on While Letting Go, the 17th of three parenting books. Welcome Karl. It's good to be with you Alan. So how did you get interested in the field of parenting? Well, like many of the major changes in my life, it came about through happenstance. Many, many years ago, the job I had, I lost my funding for that job and my wife with two little kids was at home and I had to figure out what am I going to do next and I had some friends who were in private practice so I talked to a number of them and I thought well that might be something I could try and I, one of the guys, Tom said you know if you're going to do that you need a specialty and I said really? I didn't know you needed a specialty. He said yeah that helps identify you. I said well like what kind of a specialty? He said well you know parents are going through a lot of trials with their teenagers you could do something about that and I thought well that sounds good. It sounds good to me and so then I actually I sold a weekly column to the local paper the Austin American Statesman Parenting the Teenager which I wrote for a couple of years and that plus giving parenting talks kind of got me started and I've been exploring the common and coming of age passage ever since then both in the non -fiction and parenting books but also in fiction because I write I've written some novels too and I love the coming of age story and it never gets old and it's always interesting and there's always more to learn so I feel very lucky that happenstance looked my way. Now recently you know I hope to prepare parents for the coming of age passage with their child and that is you know what we call adolescence. It's that 10 to 12 journey from the separation from childhood and late elementary school to the departure and independence sometimes during the college age years and over time a lot of changes happen. This in no way says that parents are destined to go through some kind of agony when their kid enters adolescence that is simply not so the you know the quote terrible teenager is largely mythical however that said there will be changes because you're going to have the young person doing two things over the course of 10 to 12 years and one of the one of the ways they're going to be growing is they're going to be detaching for more independence and they're going to be differentiating for more individuality so that essentially by the end of adolescence during the college age years they are able to say I can take care of and support myself and I know the individual who I am and it takes a lot of effort to go through that redefining process and what I believe is that if parents are prepared for what that journey of development looks like they are more likely to respond in appropriate and not over reactive ways and they're less likely to be surprised. They can say I didn't want this to happen and didn't look for it to happen but since it did happen I thought it might happen and so now I can just deal with where we are. So essentially what the book is about is helping parents figure out where they need to keep holding on and when how they decide to do more letting go because adolescence is a gathering of power and the name of that power is freedom and it's freedom to make your own decisions for yourself about your life and parents have to decide when to hold on and to say no not yet or I think you need some preparation for this and when to let go and say all right you've shown enough responsibility I think you're able to you know take the next step we're willing to risk letting you do that.
A highlight from Week in Review - Episode 17
"Welcome to the Week in Review podcast, a presentation of The Mike Gallagher Show and what a wild week it has been. The ups, the downs, it started out with the Biden family and then, of course, it culminated with the indictment of Donald Trump again. A wild week. I hope you're buckled in and I hope you're ready for the ride that we are on. Former Hunter Biden business associate Devin Archer's congressional testimony has confirmed that Biden is a bald faced liar when he said he had absolutely no knowledge about his son's business dealings. In closed door House testimony yesterday, Biden's close, dear former dear friend and business partner, Devin Archer, said Hunter Biden put Joe Biden on the phone with business associates 20 roughly times. Remember, Joe Biden has continually denied that he knew anything at all about Hunter Biden's shady business dealings. Here is Karl Rove yesterday on Fox News Channel. There was corruption right from the get go and the fact that the vice president, then vice president, now president thinks that it's his to advantage to say I never talked to my son about his business. He should have talked about him and said, son, you're involved in a corrupt company. I'm in charge of the policy of the United States government to discourage corruption in Ukraine and you're embarrassing me. You and Devin Archer ought to get the heck out of there. And instead we had this mealy mouthed explanation by Goldman that, oh, we never saw him talking about business deals. Well, what the heck was he doing on the phone? What do you think Hunter wanted him on the phone for? To say, remember, my dad is the vice president of the United States. I'm a big dog. He's a big dog. Do business with us. That's exactly what it was all about. We all know what has been going on. The Biden family has been selling its name for money for years. Some could argue that when you're the vice president of the United States, that's, that's an un -American, perhaps even traitorous thing to do. To use your name and sell it to foreign adversaries like China in order to line your family's pockets. Of course we should be impeaching. And when my friend this morning admitted that the impeachments hurt Trump politically to some degree, maybe not fatally, I don't know. It couldn't have helped. You think an impeachment helps a president? You think it would look good for Joe Biden to be impeached? Let the Democrats dismiss it the way we dismissed the Trump impeachment. It doesn't change anything. Doesn't change a thing. 1 -800 -655 -MIKE. Welcome aboard. It's Tuesday. We're in the Relief Factor Studio's first day of August. Can you believe it? August the 1st, 2023. We're in for a ride here. We are in for a ride. Devin Archer is saying that Hunter touted the Biden brand. It was all about the brand. Ron DeSantis, governor of Florida, presidential candidate, in an interview with Bret Baier last night pointed out that if this were anybody else but Hunter Biden, they'd already have this guy behind bars. Well, this is why we say there's two standards of justice. If Hunter were a Republican, he'd be in jail by now. You look at all this smoke and yet the FBI, where's the search warrants? Where's the grand jury? Where's the aggressiveness that they've shown going after some Republicans? You just don't see it. Including former President Trump. Including former President Trump. I mean, compare how they handled the Mar -a -Lago. They went through everything they could to get any piece of information. They are not doing that with Hunter. Of course, they didn't do it with Hillary back in 2016. So we look at that. But look at all the possible corruption. I mean, Hunter, he's selling paintings for over a million dollars. My six -year -old daughter does better paintings than him. Maybe we'll put ours up and see what kind of things she can fix. I don't think you're going to get a million dollars on it. It's just, it's amazing. The point is, you can't outdo this guy. No matter who you are, you're not going to out -Trump Trump. There is only one guy. And it's this guy. The Speaker of the House, Kevin McCarthy, has said that he is, he believes that we're on the verge of opening an impeachment inquiry into President Biden. What do you think about this? I mean, obviously you've gone through it twice. Do you think Joe Biden should be impeached? They impeached me over a perfect phone call. This guy's stolen millions of dollars and done worse than that. I mean, look at what he's done to the country with the inflation, with the energy, with taking away people's rights, with the DOJ, weaponized DOJ. No, I mean, they impeached me over a perfect phone call. And here's a guy stolen millions of dollars and done other things that are so bad. Our country is in a position where it's just, it's so sad to see what's happening. I mean, is that, you think they should proceed? I don't want to comment on it, but you know, I think people understand. Nobody's ever seen anything like it. We'll see what they do. Let them make their decision. But they should do the proper thing. Let them make their decision. Meanwhile, the political wheels keep turning and turning and churning away. There's a narrative that has emerged that Ron DeSantis is too unlikeable to get the GOP nomination. Now, it's not a secret that I'm a Trump guy, but I'm also willing to support whoever the Republican nominee is determined to be by the voters. Why is Ron DeSantis having this narrative emerge? I talked about a back and forth I had with a friend of mine who happens to be a never Trumper. I mean, here's a headline at Axios. Trump is looking really hard, looks like it's really hard to beat him. I have a back and forth that I've shared with you for years with Pete Wehner. Pete Wehner worked for the Reagan administration, the Bush administration, speechwriter, policy guy. He's a really good guy. He's a spiritual man, happens to be a never Trumper, hates Donald Trump with the heat of a thousand suns, the heat of a thousand suns. But here's what Pete's assessment is of the DeSantis campaign and these new polls that just came out. My gosh. I mean, here's the headline from Axios, new poll Trump looks hard to beat. Trump crushes his GOP rivals, leading Ron DeSantis by a landslide 37 points nationally among likely primary voters in the first New York Times, Siena College poll of the 2024 campaign. Trump's at 54%, DeSantis is at 17. Here's what Pete says about the state of affairs. I don't think he'll mind if I share his comments with you in an email. He said, the problem is that people aren't buying what DeSantis is selling, most especially himself. He's intensely dislikable, Pete believes, and not particularly talented politically. And I don't see that changing. As I've said from the beginning, he was hugely overvalued. It's possible Trump collapses, though highly unlikely. If he does, I'd expect someone other than Ron DeSantis to emerge, but it would be a chaotic scramble to be sure. Now, do you think Pete's right? You think his assessment is correct? See, here's my disconnect about Ron DeSantis. And I admit it. I admit this. I don't feel the contempt for Ron DeSantis when I see him interviewed that others apparently feel. You know, a lot of people have an agenda. You know, I've got an agenda. It's an America first agenda. I want this country to win. And under the Democrat leadership, we're losing. We're losing big time. But I want, I'm going to be behind any Republican who gets the nomination. But ultimately, I don't know who that's going to be. What I know is Ron DeSantis has been an excellent, exceptional governor. Ron DeSantis checks every box when it comes to domestic and foreign policy. So maybe Pete's right. Maybe Pete is, I mean, Ron DeSantis is unlikable. I saw a video clip over the weekend. He was talking to a little kid about eating a slushie or an icee. And he says, there's a lot of sugar in that, ha ha ha. And then he was mocked by a lot of people saying he's awkward and he's phony and he's not likable. And listen, he doesn't have the charisma or the bombastic personality of Donald Trump.

I was watching the other day I'm actually not a huge Martin Luther King fan or whatever super flawed guy But I was watching the last the audio was listening the audio of the last speech that he gave the night before he was killed April 3rd, 1968. He was killed the next afternoon And he gave this speech and he had just been like cheating with a bunch of different women. Okay. Yeah He had a tendency. Oh my gosh. No, he was like a ridiculous out of control But he gave this speech in which he clearly predicted his own death Like there's no doubt if you listen to this that God is speaking through Martin Luther King and I and I get I don't like Martin Luther King's program. I don't like his behaviors a lot of You know worshipping Martin Luther King is absurd to me, but I gotta say if you listen to that speech God is speaking through Martin Luther King. There's no other explanation for that and you're like, well, that's kind of consistent with what we know We're all flawed the people in charge tend to be more flawed But it doesn't mean that they're not capable of greatness So let's just be honest about it The second you have to feel the need to pretend that you're perfect you become a liar and you become paradoxically even less perfect Become a member members dot Charlie Kirk calm buckle up everybody here we go Charlie what you've done is incredible here Maybe Charlie Kirk is on the college campuses. I want you to know we are lucky to have Charlie Kirk Charlie Kirk's run in the White House folks.

I trust Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific mortgage at Andrew and Todd come One of the things I don't like is how these this primary is Ruining some people's friendships. I'm not gonna let that happen people know where my loyalties personally lie and I Got to tell you there's there's some really great people that are advocating in different camps We need to keep those bonds strong for those buying strong for just no other reasons and it's the right thing to do Great American and one of the sharpest minds in the movement Dave Rubin joins us Dave. Welcome to the program Dave How's this primary treating you? I'm sure that it's it's been uplifting fun You know, and I'm sure you just want it to go on for another two years Well first off early I want to say that no matter what happens in this crazy circus that we are all endlessly sucked into and cannot get out of the orbit of You and I were friends before all of this and I will be friends after this even if temporarily We're on I don't even want to say opposite side It seems that we're both I would say in different camps or but we're on Team America Dave We're just wearing different jerseys in the primary Is that fair to say that is fair to say and that's also why and I think you were kind of getting to this in That intro there. That's why it's been so disappointing to see the level of Craziness, I would say coming far more out of one side than another which is defending itself for the most part Because I've really really been trying it and for the people for your listeners and viewers that watch my show I have really been trying to stay above the fray to the best of my ability I am not perfect at it. Just like you are not perfect at it and and often politics brings out the worst in all of us But I think the best we can do right now is fight for the things we believe in and the people that you think And accomplish those things at a political and cultural level. That's what I'm doing that's what you're doing and and that's what many other people are doing and and hopefully if you do it with a Degree of honesty and integrity. I think you'll survive either way and I think a lot of people are kind of putting that aside And Dave we've done a lot of fun stuff together and we're gonna keep on doing it I mean we went to UC Berkeley together and you had your briefcase robbed from you in the early days of San Francisco Well, you didn't tell me I couldn't leave a bag in a car outside of Morton's That's right. It was in it was in a security car outside Morton's near the Transamerica building and Dave lost everything So Dave, I want to actually give our audience a fair opportunity here and this is not a gotcha in any way Just make the case for Governor DeSantis is policy agenda how you think the campaign is going Obviously, we've been you know voicing my personal opinions on President Trump's agenda what he's doing I want our audience to be able to hear all sides of it. You know, you're a very articulate I could say spokesperson for I don't not officially but obviously advocate Kind of make the case especially to our conservative audience. And then secondly, how do you think his campaign is currently going? Well, first off just to be clear I'm not a spokesperson I am not paid for you know By the campaign or anything like that. I would not even if they offered me money. I wouldn't I'm doing what I think is Right. I tell people what I think for a living and my life Literally my life and the life of my family and my employees who are in this room and them who work remotely But many of them who live in Florida and the two companies that I moved to Florida is all enriched by the things that Ron DeSantis has done here in the great state of Florida. I left I don't know that anyone in the entire country left California fled California more publicly than I did about a year and a half ago to move to the free state of Florida I would say and I'd love to hear your thoughts on this if you are a I would say right leaning person meaning you are Let's say a disaffected liberal or you're a traditional You know religious conservative or you're a libertarian something in that or you're just I said disaffected liberal But you're just sort of an old -school liberal who's a little confused about what time it is say like an RFK type You in essence should be loving every single thing that Ron DeSantis has done. I don't know one thing that Ron DeSantis Has not done that we would have wanted him to do Florida is safe. Its economy is absolutely booming We fund the police here. We're getting ESG out of our institutions We've done that which that's actually perhaps the biggest issue that people don't talk about that often because it's kind of in the weeds on How corporations are putting wokeness on all of us? I know you talk about it, but the average person doesn't and they certainly don't in corporate America. He has fought Disney He has fought the endless racialization of our children by getting rid of this AP African American Studies course That was in essence going to teach gender theory. We've gotten some of these books that are sexualizing our children out of schools He has done Literally everything that anyone right -leaning could believe in or could possibly want to happen I would say he's done one or two things that are a little bit more like right -leaning then then I will they're perfect for me Dave I got to say I love that stuff No, absolutely. So for example, Charlie, I'll give you one that you agree with DeSantis more than I do Which is the abortion one for me, Florida had Florida had 15 week Abortion ban and I've been to every Republican event in the year and a half since I've been here and I never heard anyone complaining About it DeSantis often said that he personally was pro -life And by the way, it's it's completely within his jurisdiction as the chief executive of the state especially when you win by a freaking crazy 1 .6 million vote landslide 20 % to do what you think is right and he has the Supermajority in the state Senate to make that happen. So he switched it six now I think it's possible that will hurt him in the in the general election I think at the primary it probably a little bit works to his favor But but I know he did what he thought was right and that's what he believes At he should use his power to do as the governor So I have a disagree with disagreement with him on that, but I think that's fine But I would ask you what is there anything that Ron DeSantis you're you're at least apart Oh, he's America's greatest governor. I've said that and I and by the way, I just I've said that repeatedly and some people say oh You're anti -de Santis. I said I'm not anti -de Santis. I've said he's America's greatest governor, but let me ask you Dave Is there anything can you what would what would you say would be your biggest my biggest complaint is the last six months? He's allowing consultants and Chamber of Commerce folks to run his campaign. He doesn't sound like the Ron DeSantis of last year I'll just be very honest. So so give so we can talk about the Ukraine give me like a specific example The Ukraine language, right? So the Ukraine language he was kind of dilly -dallying and flip -flopping on that at first. He was great His instinct was territorial dispute. Then he's talking about, you know more weapons for Zelensky and all that But honestly, it's also just kind of a vibe and a tone Dave where you know, the base for example I'll give you another example his miss handling of the Trump indictment I said that Ron DeSantis should have went down to Miami done a press conference showed that hey, this is my state Hey Vivek Ramaswami did it he ascended in the polls and now Vivek and DeSantis Vivek is working with Trump and everyone knows hold on a second But you're not gonna win the primary unless you understand Trump has a bait, you know has a built -in 50 to 60 percent But but hold on but if you listen to what DeSantis his words were related to the indictment He said he would not on the first indictment He said he would not extradite him and he's gone out of his way saying he's gonna destroy the very agencies I think has been more that's fair. No his policy fine But let me tell you how the base heard it Dave the base heard this and it might not even be fair I'm just telling you how the base heard it right because remember the base is like a lover scorned They hear one thing from a politician like Paul Ryan or Boehner and Lindsey Graham So they have a heightened sense of distrust and they love Trump and that's not going to change They heard Ron DeSantis go out of his way the first time to say well I don't know really what goes into payoffs to You know play boy. I'm not even saying that's fair That was just a joke and Trump makes silly jokes and sex jokes about everything like that The laws of Trump don't apply to everyone else Dave, you know that we're in this it's a different primary, right? The laws the guy is levitates. He's a once in a 200 -year, you know He says I'm gonna shoot somebody on Fifth Avenue and he goes up in the polls. He attacks He's not a politician at this point. He's something beyond a politician, which I also think there's a certain demagoguery That's somewhat dangerous related to that. But oh, by the way, again, you know, I you know, I voted for Trump I like no, I know No, and I just so that was another thing and then finally I know that I'm a little biased when very biased when Ron DeSantis Didn't show up at our event that bothered me, right? It wasn't some sort of gotcha or trap I think he would have done very well I don't think he would have gotten booed or anything But here's what I would like to see out of DeSantis, you know When we go to a college campus you say hey if you disagree go to the front of the line I want to say I want to see somebody get in the arena and say hey I'm willing to throw out the script. I'm willing to just take any question. I'm willing to kind of just fight It's more kind of total and attitudinal Dave your reaction sure So look if in essence and we'll pick it up after the break if in essence your your point is oh I agree with Virtually all of the policies and nobody has accomplished more than this guy and done everything I want to do But but there's a little bit of a marketing issue here All right, I'll go with you on that and I think that can be dealt with but we'll pick it up on the other side Well, look, I will say this the base the base is very smart and they're constantly Looking in a way of who's gonna betray me next This is the advice I'd get I gave the DeSantis privately and publicly and right now the Rubicon has been crossed where they think DeSantis is gonna betray. I'm not even saying that's fair, but but I'm not saying it's fair. It's honest I mean Trump Trump has done far more to betray the truth and and in a certain way the Respect of the base every time he lies about dissent, right? So when he lies about kovat in Florida who was the best governor for kovat in Florida kovat in the country DeSantis 100 % But who has more who has more in who has done more work and more praise for Paul Ryan Is it Ron DeSantis or Donald Trump for Paul Ryan? I can't I can't either way but at the same time we could talk about getting after the break I can't speak either way. I mean I could show you plenty of videos of I'm gonna tell you this this line of what you're getting at is not persuasive to the base and I'll explain why after the break Because I'm telling you the truth. I'm not trying to persuade anybody Okay, but no lecturing the base is not how you win a primary That's that what you're doing is why he's losing because they want to hear well Not necessarily the little things Trump got wrong. They want to hear a vibe of a fighter that's gonna go crush the unit party in DC Hey everybody Charlie Kirk here every day we heard about another familiar brand selling out their companies and going woke Americans are sick and tired of having left -wing propaganda jammed into every product they consume woke mobile companies are no different for years They've been dumping millions in the left -wing causes and we had to take it because you need a cell phone and probably thought there was No alternative.

That's patriot mobile comm slash Charlie Continue with us is a good friend of mine Dave Rubin We've done a lot of stuff together about the years the Rubin report David. I didn't Dave I did not mean to cut you off. Please finish the argument. Yeah No, it's all good at Charlie really like this is we would do this over drinks I want people to understand that like there is something that transcends politics here Well, let me ask you something because one thing that I've been confused sort of going off what you said right before the break Was that he's sort of that DeSantis has like handed this off to that glass of people or something Do you is it your position that that Ron DeSantis has anything to do with Karl Rove or Paul Ryan? Oh, no I because Donald Trump does that I don't think he does does that repeatedly and that's what all the people but Dave I'll be honest He's acting like he does He's acting like he might as well because he's acting and talking like Karl Rove is running his campaign. No, no, no No, hold on Hold on you do you have any evidence or any reason to believe that Karl Rove or Paul Ryan have anything? No, except for the fact that Fox has been very favorable to DeSantis and Paul Ryan sits on the board But that seems like a reach and and so what I'm not gonna do Dave is I'm not gonna go through every Truth social and go through all that with you know Trump saying But sure we don't have to go through all of that except but it is important I think to some degree because I agree with what you're saying about The base in that in their passion for Donald Trump and why it's important and shouldn't be ignored and by the way When I'm frustrated with some of the the surrogates let's say or some of Trump's behavior lying about Florida and kovat that sort of thing That's that's a direct frustration. It's not a frustration with the people that support him But for example, I mean I have the exact quote right here from DeSantis about a month ago I actually did a little research before I joined you today. This is a direct quote from DeSantis I have not spoken to Paul Ryan since I was elected governor and I've met Karl Rove won I really think it's important that your viewers who are the base understand that because if you listen to any of the surrogates and Donald Trump himself They're implying that he's somehow working with these people and that they are in charge of his campaign and everything else and it's simply not Okay, and I think that that's important. That's important to know but know that that's that's fair. I'm glad I'm glad we cleared that up DeSantis has gotten favorable treatment on Fox and Paul Ryan as a board member there, but let me let me put that aside Let me just say though the type of campaign Trump was on with Brett Baer what two weeks ago? Fair enough. I would say though That was a that was a mostly peaceful interview as we would say But let me let me just put it with the type of campaign I want DeSantis to run is like the vague which is there needs to be a sign of respect towards Trump But I don't feel with this from DeSantis. I'll be very honest DeSantis is a governor Thanks to Donald Trump that primary was not going well for him, right? So he's challenging the alpha beast, right? He's challenging the guy that did kind of Anoint him to win the primary and eventually the general the vague is smart The vague is reading the room that these indictments the amount of criminalization of Trump really Increases people's fervor of the injustice towards him. So DeSantis has a choice Do you run kind of a policy technocratic campaign? which is what he's running and I don't think it's going very well or do you read the room and you realize the base has an attachment to Trump and I'm going to respect that it seems as if it's in some kind of murky middle. I guess my question is Dave How do you think the campaign is going? Right. Well, I would say that first off just quickly on the Vivek things I don't want to spend too much time on that I mean It's fairly obvious to anyone paying attention that that Trump and Vivek are coordinating right Vivek is doing all Endless attacks on DeSantis no attacks on Trump and all of the Trump surrogates online, you know who they are They're always pumping up Vivek because Vivek is going after DeSantis Also, if I was to believe any of the polls and national polls, by the way mean absolutely nothing We're also seven months away from the first primary I mean really think about that like the first primary isn't until January of next year and Everyone's going crazy as if oh my god on any given day. Like the whole world is gonna spin out of control The you would never you would never if you were so confident of your lead you would never spend all day Attacking the number two guys. So that's just a little insider political jockeying However, I will agree with you that in terms of some of the strategy of the rollout They probably should have been more aggressive. I do see that changing. Look DeSantis just went on Russell Brand last week He just went on CNN for the first time last week I think he's doing Megyn Kelly this week if I'm not mistaken and she's been very very critical of him Russell's a lefty. I mean he certainly isn't you know, no one that you would call a traditional conservative by any stretch I would love to see him go on the view sit directly with those women and call out their endless lies about Florida, you know Anna Navarro who lives in Miami who rails against Florida every day He should sit right next to her and call her out so if you want if your question is really do you want to take some of the Anger that the base has because of the way Trump being treated and he's being treated horribly And I completely agree with righteous. I agree. I agree There's probably some way to do that But I would also say to some extent if you just want to view this if you just want to view this in the political lens Maybe this is why Trump should stop lying about DeSantis every which way and you know, he is Everything he says about DeSantis is a lie. Everything he says Dave. I'll be honest It's also a lie when DeSantis goes after Trump and says he was pro Fauci and all that. That's just not true But but and it is what it gave Fauci an award on the way out. We're out of time Dave Rubin.

My PhD weight loss calm Okay, really important discussion we're gonna have here It's a sensitive topic and there's some pending legal challenges around it So we sent out this tweet and it's gone totally viral. So joining us now is Preisha Mosley Who is a D transitioner and attorney Josh Payne who is the attorney for Preisha? And I sent out this tweet both of you by the way, by the way, welcome to the program I said this tweet up Preisha Mosley is a 25 year old North Carolina woman who is suing the doctors who aided her sex change According to Preisha these doctors approved cross -sex hormones and a double mastectomy after consultation as brief as two minutes They also told her taking testosterone shots would allow her to quote grow a penis in Reality Preisha was just a 15 year old batter battling depression anxiety anorexia Her parents fought against her transition, but were steamrolled by enablers posing as medical professionals Preisha and Josh. Welcome to the program I understand there's some legal sensitivities around all this and so Preisha tell us in your own words your story and Why you're pursuing a lawsuit? Um, so my story is that I was a very troubled teenage girl I had a very sudden hard and strong puberty and Basically, my body grew faster than my brain. I Started receiving attention from boys and men who just wanted to touch me And Then at 14, I actually experienced a sexual assault which led to a miscarriage and totally divorced me from womanhood and then at 15, I was online in the pro Anna community and that's a self -harm community where people have anorexia and enable each other and Transgender adults came into the community and started telling us that we couldn't eat because we were born in the wrong body and we were boys and Eventually, you know after hearing an onslaught of this for so long and proof, you know I I ended up believing it and I was desperate for a cure. I was suicidal and had attempted And I just wanted to feel better. So I Was met by medical professionals who said the same exact thing You know you you have a disease you were born in the wrong body, you know you and so on and so forth Um, and I'm bringing a legal case because I've come to realize that I am not a boy I wasn't born in the wrong body. I I was mentally ill I needed therapy I I needed someone to care for me. Um But that's what happened it's a very powerful and by the way courageous testimony that you have Josh You're the attorney for Preisha Josh. Can you fill us in on who Preisha is suing and what is the complaint? basically detailed That's right, Charlie as we allege in the complaint Preisha is seeking justice because she feels that she was deceived and misled into a Medicalized gender transition being placed on what they call cross -sex hormone therapy which in actuality is injecting large amounts of testosterone the male hormone into her female body and also having her healthy breasts removed by a plastic surgeon at age 18 after she was put on the testosterone at age 17 and Doctors and the counselors who were involved in leading her down this path and the the tragedy of it is that It happened and Preisha was left with her mental health issues unresolved Contrary to the promises that were made that these medical interventions would in fact cure her mental health Problems and issues and that they were a treatment for those mental health Issues but as alleged in the complaint that did not happen Preisha was left with her mental health still untreated and unresolved and with additional significant mental and emotional injuries and of course the physical injuries That were brought about by her being on testosterone for years and without her body parts So I just need to editorialize for a second There are thousands if not tens of thousands of other young people that are now walking into the same circumstances that Preisha Was nine years ago.
Karl Rove Is Dismissing Both Donald Trump & Ron DeSantis
"If you want to know where the latest rhino position is then you want to listen to Karl rove and read his materials Nobody knows rhino ism better than Carl I have to give him that He's the king of the rhinos 20 years So he's out there telling everybody that Trump a desantis are fighting over just a little tiny percentage 2025% but you really need to look at Nikki Haley and Tim Scott And of course the Hindenburg in New Jersey you know people like that And he's all over the place telling America that You know his record is a disaster A disaster whether it's the midterms whether it was bush's second term actually before that in 2006 where we were blown out of Congress And he took down good men like Rick santorum a Pennsylvania and others I don't know I don't understand it I really don't I don't get it He's like the biggest establishment guy You want to know what Mitch McConnell's thinking Listen to him You want to know where the rhinos are Listen to him He want to know it's just the same thing So he dismisses both Trump and desantis and you trumpet desantis supporters better start paying attention to this Because what's really happening is they're fielding all these other candidates because they want to take out Trump and desantis They've figured Trump is going to be destroyed by the Democrats and the prosecutors They figured desantis will be destroyed By some of the media
Did Trump Bail on Rally Due to Bad Weather or Low Turnout?
"Karl rove summed up, by the way, I want to play this. Donald Trump did not go. They were going to have dueling rallies. Donald Trump canceled his allegedly because of bad weather. A lot of people thought he might have looked at the crowd and didn't like it, but there was bad weather. There were tornadoes, and you don't hold outdoor rallies in tornadoes. So Ron DeSantis showed up at an Iowa restaurant in Des Moines about a mile from where the former president was a no show and repeated that basic message cut number 23. Republicans have lost a lot of elections recently. You've had disaster on our border crime. An administration that's totally festival and people think that the country's best days ahead, but I think Florida and Iowa source of hope because we show you can get it done. Requires leadership requires commitment to principle requires some courage, but if you're willing to do that and you're willing to deliver results, the people are there. They'll follow because they just want to see a better future. So we've done that in Florida. They've done that in Iowa. You know, we're going to have a chance pretty soon to make sure that's done in every state in this type.

"And you've got, like you said, it's not a small deal that your coach is reported to want to resign or considering resigning, he never also, by the way, answered directly whether he had considered that. From his answer, it actually sounded like he had considered it. And just was like, we all at the end of every season we all think about whether we want to come back. It's like this isn't the end of the season, man. So Nate McMillan has often had really good starts to his ten years with teams and then just kind of fizzled out and that kind of looks like this might be what that is. So we'll see. I'm interested to see what happens, but it's not looking great right now. The best you think you can hope for right now is that Trae Young just plays better offensively and then maybe some of the stuff becomes a little bit less valid. And then real quick the wolves. Is there anything for them to do? I don't know that they can move off Gobert. They're in a weird spot. It just is, you definitely can't move up him this quickly because you would never get unless you're just happy with like ten seeds on the dollar, yeah. I'll use the quick analogy. You know, I love my now fiance as we talked about earlier. And when you're going ring shopping and you know, maybe you get cold feet for a moment or maybe you just are like, it's not even copy. It's like, is she gonna say yes, which, you know, frankly, if you have a really deep question in your mind about that, you shouldn't probably be buying one. But I'm more interested in like, what's the return policy here? If I decide I want to push this back, if she says no, whatever. And they're like, buddy, you're not kidding. Look, unless there's something wrong, you're not gonna get your money back for what you're paying for this. It just doesn't work like that in the industry. So then your resell value is extremely low because a car stones depreciate after you buy them. That's what Rudy Gobert is right now. Nobody's paying for him what you just paid. Maybe you can find a straight team or two out there that really needs his skill set. Again, I would probably have to look to see which team that even is. The funny thing is that it probably would be Utah. In terms of needing a rip protect sector because they don't have one. But you're not getting anything near anywhere near what you paid for them back. So I think because of everything you just laid out, it would probably be a smarter question of like, what could we get for towns to ask that question? I don't think that they're going to do that. I think it would be too big of a concession that they effed up this deal to begin with to even make that deal. And everything they mortgaged on that deal. But I'm not sure where Gobert could go would go, I think it would be more of a question of like, where would tals go? Because the entire league would be interested in that deal if they had the assets to do it. So but I don't know what there is for them to do. I think they're only real responses like wait for towns to get back.

"You could make the argument that Toronto would, but like Toronto's not trading their best guy for him or their best guys for him. Toronto's got link. So maybe play around him, but I also think they kind of thrive on being a little bit of a democracy with that team too. And I also think that they've got a young player that they like having the ball in his hands a lot and Scotty Barnes. You know, the team that came to mind that I started thinking about, I don't think that they would do it, but Dallas would be interesting just because I feel like it would be like a new look Houston with harden and Paul. If you had, I don't think I would do it. Again, I don't think they would do it either. He's coming in saying the rockets with the rockets trade for Trae Young. Well, I mean, they do have a team that I don't think there's anybody on the team that's like so clearly a superstar going to be that maybe you take the gamble. You take the chance. It seemed that already doesn't play much defense. I mean, but that doesn't mean you want to be that way forever. They also made the really hilarious comment on inside the NBA yesterday of like, you know, like what is Houston doing or why are they playing like this? And I think Charles just said women Yama. Which is essentially why. They kind of do look like they're trying to do that. Should we throw out the wizards too? I don't think the wizards, I think the wizards would rather tank. You got to figure out what you're doing with Bradley Beal first, I think. Also, I think shout out to a name that we have not mentioned in a while unless maybe you've done it on one of the pods I was not. Is porzingis has been really really fun. Completely. He's been really good. Good defending the rim too when teams have tried to Shelby also threw out Orlando enough. No, the magic or not. We're not touching the ground. We're not touching the Orlando Magic, okay? Our beautiful, perfect Orlando Magic. We're not touching them now. They've been really even yesterday I was watching them in that game against Memphis and it's just like they've got, I would say three guys right now that it's like and maybe more than that that you look at them and you're like, yo, this team, if they just don't F this up over the next two, three years with Franz Wagner and obviously Bon Carroll, Bon Caro had a 20 point quarter yesterday and just dunking all over the place on a pretty good defense.

"You were kind of expecting him to get hurt. I mean, I remember that first, was it the first season that he had in Phoenix that I was stun I was like, why is this guy not sitting out games? Missing games. And I think he had done pretty much the same thing when he kept Oklahoma City afloat and got them into the playoffs too. But you just kind of expect Chris Paul to miss games like he'd had a lot of injuries over the course of his career. He's getting older and was able to kind of fend off father time for a little bit. But they consistently had the lineups that played the most. So all the stuff we talk about with the Clippers and the pelicans and everybody else in gelling and getting time to develop a rhythm with your lineups. The sons had more of that than anybody, as far as they're starting 5, as far as their foursomes and bridges and Booker and Paul and ayton, they played so many minutes together for years. On some level, almost should have been like law of averages. If you're able to stay healthy for two years with your top guys, 'cause granted, there were other guys, Shara edge and what have you. I think Kaminsky also got hurt at one point or somebody. Granted, you were going to have your starters, you know, get banged up at some point. And it's kind of crazy to think about the whole Crowder thing now, because one, no one's traded for them. Two, the sons have been really banged up at exactly that position between Kim Johnson and obviously Chris Paul, Booker now is the big one for them. An 8 and always misses a little bit of time here and there normally. So it was bound to happen at some point. I mean, number one, you have one of the oldest point guards in the league, but number two, your team had kind of skated by without major injury in anybody. And these granted, you know, what the exception of camp Johnson, none of these were really major necessarily. But it was kind of time for something to happen. You figured that something was going to happen. And now that it has, you're seeing the results of it. The positive thing here is, again, no one's really running away with the west yet. It doesn't mean that the suns aren't going to be a potential factor in the playoffs. But it does all of a sudden look a little bit different when they're struggling with the same things that most teams struggle with. Yeah, they have had a rough go of it with the injuries. As good as luck is they've maybe had the last couple of years. This is a harsh overcorrection that they've had with cam Johnson. Almost everyone except Mikael bridges, one of the league's best Iron Man is miss time. Poor Monty Williams, I can not imagine how stressful that job has been room this year.

"They have spacing and shooting. They've got one of the best rebounders in the world on the offensive glass. Zion is maybe the most physical player in the league or at least the most feared. Maybe in some ways, in terms of once he gets ahead of his team, I put him right up there with Yanis. You've got Ingram. Again, you've got McCollum, it's a team that's well coached. It's a team that's athletic. I don't want any part of them. So I'm not overly concerned as long as they can, you know, get healthy enough. And again, similar to the PG kawaii conversation. As long as they're too top guys, get an opportunity to play enough off of each other and gel as teammates and top scores, that's a team that I'm definitely not worried about if anything I'm actually worried about who's going to play them because how do you attack a team like that and are you athletic enough to hang with them? That's very interesting. Yeah, I think we both kind of first of all, I think we both assumed the warriors were going to go into the tank a little bit. Not literally tanking, but we're going to have a tough time. So shout out to them. I do think you lay out some interesting points. They do have some more combinations to play, which is interesting. You're probably saw me looking at my phone. I was looking up some of their lineup stats, like their bench lineup has been fantastic. Obviously that lineup was going against typically other bench units. But they've been really good there. We love all of our auto. It's crazy how they made that big Devante Graham signing a couple years ago. And he barely plays. He barely plays, but I think he said Daniel shout out. Dyson Daniels has been really solid. The pelicans have had one lineup that's played ten games this season. Isn't that crazy? They've got one lineup that's laid over a hundred minutes. And they're one game out of first. They're right there. I mean, there's a lot of reason to be really excited about them. And I think there's a lot of reasons. Obviously to be excited about Memphis who just recently started to get all their guys back too. Memphis has taken the step already that I think New Orleans would love to take this year. Maybe they'd like to go even further and kind of fashion themselves as finals contenders, but there's really no reason that the pelicans can't be what Memphis was last year.

"And I also kind of trust like I was saying before I'm a little bit jaded by the Derek rose stuff of when he was here in Chicago and the way that people ragged on him when he wasn't playing when he'd been cleared to play. And he'd had the one major injury at that point. He sat out after he was cleared, including a playoff series, which I think was no different than essentially what happened with Jamal Murray last year. It just didn't get as much attention. You know, I don't think that these guys don't want to play. It's Kawhi Leonard, who's won two finals MVPs. You know, clearly at times it's been at least a top three player in this league. If not the best. And I know that there was a time. And I think this tends to happen, I think, more or less people always kind of take the player that just lifted his team to a finals run in the finals win. They always find a way to include that person in the conversation, whether it's stuff right now or Kauai after he won the raptors title. I think people kind of do that or find a way into that conversation, but Kawhi was in that conversation. I don't think he's like all of a sudden lost a competitive fire. Like whether he's a motive or not, he clearly wants to be out there. So if for whatever reason he's not, after he's been cleared, to me what that shouts screams is like, this guy doesn't feel like he doesn't trust his body right now. And stuff I would imagine has to be pretty bad for someone to not trust their body at that point in their career. When they've accomplished that much and rose had done stuff similar to that. And then when he did come back, he hurt himself like ten games, 12 games in. So I trust these MVP caliber guys to know their bodies better than we do as fans. Better than maybe even the team doctors to some extent about what they trust or what they don't trust or maybe if their body is still compromised on some level. So I'm trusting the clippers doctors I'm trusting Kauai to kind of know where he's at enough. For him to be able to make one healthy run, even if it's just a play out run along with Paul George, maybe I'm just hoping that that will be the case, but I do trust at some point. They will have that. I would hope that they can run this back until they get an opportunity to do that. And they have had one playoff run together where they just kind of blew it. Let's be honest too. And I want to say that last night was one of the poorest performances I've seen between the two of them. It was apparently the first time neither one of them had scored ten points. In a game together, but again, they were cut short. So I think that part was interesting too, is that maybe that signals Kauai wants to be out there more. It doesn't surprise me that he would want to be out there more, but maybe that's a sign that, look, I'm going to throw a little bit of caution to the wind and play longer minutes, play more games, even if I'm not feeling great all the time because we need to kind of we're not progressing as a team if I don't play. And maybe that's a realization that he's come to him as well. You know, yeah, on one hand, it's impressive where this team has given all the injuries, but they have now lost four games in a row.

"Method works based on offers. Process is that you don't prove conjectures because an order to prove something you have to have all the information. But you can falsify injectors and so the of used to prove once they don't detect everything and then now you falsified their statement. Which is we catch all the attacks. That's just the idea that i always bring to. The problem is like We should be thinking pasta ballistic which is like what's something that could happen whether or not we observed it or not. That doesn't matter because we haven't observed everything that could or has happened in the past. Dust like we're making decisions. We shouldn't work from probability because probability's inherently limited Perfect data if we think pasta licitly than we ultimately have that seventy four five log example that i gave. which is. We're assuming right now. The seventy forty five is going to identify every service that's ever created but is it possible for serbs be created without a seven five. When you ask that question you may not know the answer to that. Think about whether it's possible and now you can try to prove with the ability this can actually happen. And that's not really it's the whole processes identify something that might be possible. Tried it through the awfully concur. Falsify some conjecture may earlier or some assumption this a very philosophical answer to these kinds of questions. I don't think any guests have brought up. Karl popper i don't think anybody's brought up falsify ability to this extent but people live with that without being aware that it's kind of happening so i i think jared has an excellent point that these are the laws that drive our domain in people's kind of unawareness of them doesn't save them from their impacts. Now you can argue against gravity. But you're still gonna be falling down not up right the sideways those you're still going to have your coastal real estate. Thanks to ask ticket this false positive thing a little bit more though. What can organizations do practically. And i love karl popper but i don't think he's going to help my sock. Analysts have fewer sleep interrupted. So what can organizations do practically to deal with. Being by false positives there is an aspect that also houses are kinda hedged on false negatives You can't quantify false negatives and so you have to have hedge on them to some degree the threshold by which you alert on. Something is very And that may be comfortable some people but the idea that you can tune a detection means that the detection is arbitrary. Concept is in perfect. Really what we're doing whether we're doing an explicit earned -plicitly is. We have some constrained and out of resources. Let's just like analysis hours. Maybe not all analysts are as efficient as each other. but we'll just kind of attracted to allen's hours. One of the main key focuses is can we improve. The efficiency of our analysts. Units are our one way would be to hire more analysts they have more analysts hours that seems to be not the ideal solution for most people as the idea would be can't be made those analysts hours that we have more efficient so we can deal with more false positives right or more alerts. In general anton has really great Certainty any kind of proposed three difference strategies and after they're not comprehensive foot one is improve alert triage which is kind of like the idea of. Can we make this process more efficient than what we're doing now. Rice does become more efficient. Which means you could handle more alert..

"That was hornbach. The mgm c. o. Talking optimistically about the opening of allegiance stadium to full capacity time for for this season talking to to the raiders. There obviously optimistic as well. Knock on wood no question. They're you know they're they. They have to adhere to whatever the state. Regulations are at that point But but you know their hope is that allegiant is going to be open You know a restriction free. Come august when when season comes around. Preseason comes around and i know that There they understand especially with the feedback that they're getting from fans How everyone is it up the bit to get inside legion stadium and really make it the home field that everybody envisioned here in las vegas. That stadium was going to be An and you know we've talked about this ad. How many times sitting the empty stadium in an important parts games and we're all sitting there wondering wow what would it be like if sixty sixty five thousand people were were in this building. I want to get your thoughts on that. But also and Mark between the president of the raiders brought this up as well You know when you think about allegiance stadium As fans they're thinking about getting in there and make it. A great environment for the raiders. Making a difference as we've seen other stadiums difference makers and key parts of the game just because of the atmosphere that creates and all of that is true But when you think about allegiance. Stadium the stadium. This deal this partnership between the nfl. And las vegas and the state of nevada There's financial implications as well and the stadium is expected to be a driving force Here in las vegas and not just for the stadium. Not just for the raiders. Not just for you know The people that run the stadium. But let's be honest about it. You know people like bill hornbach over at mgm. And and you know the the sands corporation everyone that has a vested interest in the hospitality. Business here in las vegas having a stadium like allegiance stadium open full-throttle throughout the course of the year. This isn't just a football stadium. This is going to have super balls in final fours events and concerts and you know we could go on and on about what is going to be in there. What's what's what does that mean. That means people are coming to las vegas Yes obviously the locals are going to be supporting a big time. But throughout the state of nevada throughout the western part of the country and really even nationally people are going to be coming in on weekends for big events and staying up hotels and eating at the restaurants and gambling and drinking and do all those things at pump money into this economy were coming off covert teen And you know everything. All all siser are pointing up as far as getting back on our feet here in las vegas but this place was going to be a strong i of financial influence as it is but even but now coming off covid nineteen and the importance of getting really getting back to two strikes hereafter. What was really tragedy. People losing jobs. The economy being obviously affected because the tourism Industry took a big hit during covid. Nineteen that as well is an important part of this is not just what is going to look like in their on sundays which we all can't wait But what it means to this. Local and state is huge as well right. Do you survey the landscape in. The pandemic was devastating for everybody. That's not that's not breaking news like it was devastating for everybody. But this vegas like you said this. This market relies on tourism and hospitality. That's a majority of the economy that more people work here into in hospitality than anything else and part of hospitality. Part of like you said why people come here for entertainment for shows for what they thought would be football games for concerts for offensive. Elisa's stadium was really a game. Change right we'll beyond say would go on tour before there wasn't a venue in vegas that she could go performance. Now there is right and now there are now the mega fight like canal. Alvarez billy joe saunders down eighteen stadium in dallas. They considered allegiance to you but at least stadium was already to have a full capacity of fans yet. So you think about the marks events boxing. Ufc concerts like you. Said final fours wrestlemainia. Whatever you name it. This allegiance stadium opens the doors for all those possibilities to come in vegas and It's going to be we're gonna get this year. What we thought we were going to. Have you know last year. Going into the season. And i really. I think it's even going to be amplified even more because think about the excitement or the energy that people who raiders fans in general of different events build up cheering on team from the couch the entire year when they thought there would be at the game. So the i-it's is the perfect timing. I mean really. I mean it kind of needs to happen and i'm really excited now. Like you said we got to see where the pandemic set. Obviously were all really optimistic. We want this to happen. But we're gonna see where everything's happening. It feels many living in vegas. That things are starting to turn a corner here by. Hotels are starting to back up. The cases are it. Feels like it's getting to be more manageable vaccine is being more and more distributed and it's like there's a glimmer of light at the end of this long tunnel that we as a country we as a community vegas. Musil world have been just driving through waiting for some kind of end in elision stadium in the nfl. Like i if if the raiders adding their full season here in front of fans if that's like the metaphorical sunshine at the end of the tunnel. I'm all for it right. If if it can safely happened than it needs to happen you know some of those games last year right like the really competitive fund ones were. Were going to be competitive fun nonetheless foot like you really felt in absence of a crowd like football spectators when you have sixty five thousand strong making noise a being into the game like it makes the experience more fun for everybody involved including us as journalists. It feels like there's more of an event on as opposed to just a game being played for tv audience so It's it's here will say that. Very optimistic still still cautiously optimistic. I guess characterize it but there's a light at the end of the tunnel in vegas news is more than ever in the really looking forward to it absolutely And with that we'll wrap it up. I want to say thanks to all our listeners. The numbers have been great. We really appreciate the support So tell your friend If they're raider fan.

"karl" Discussed on Voices of Search by Searchmetrics
"Kathy let me start off with you. Gimme the update in the lay of the land. Where do we stand in terms of the out of core web vitals. So you got it exactly right. We are anticipating that the core web vitals will roll out in may twenty twenty one. And it's going to be part of the larger page. Experience ranking factor that ragging factor includes lots of other ranking factors. That are already employ such as https mobile friendly and penalizing intrusive ads in mobile. But what's new is the core web vitals of course so most of our clients are busy looking at their google search console. Report to see what. Google is telling them the corwin i need to focus on and make better and yeah we're just waiting to make better and waiting for the rollout in may so interesting to me about core web vitals. It is really the start of google talking a little bit about what their ranking factors are not specifically from a content ranking but from a technical perspective when we think about what core web vital actually are. Help me break down the difference between the core web vitals. We're talking a lot of detail about what each individual acronym means but overall what our core web vitals. What's the utility for them. Yeah the other thing. I wanted to mention is. It's kind of unusual for google to pre-announce changes. I mean usually we have these four updates or changes at gonna get just roll out or we don't get a lot of notice about the with the vitals we've gotten almost a year's advance notice or where vital so that may give you a clue on how important google thinks. These are the core web vitals. As i mentioned are part of an aggregate raqi factor called page experience. And one thing. I think is kind of interesting as we know. Google has been telling us like you need. Make your pages more performance. They need to be faster. A lot of people listening to this podcast probably know about sap which is the first content full paint so you need to get something on the screen fast or your user will abandon your side and never come back. What i find interesting about. Page experience in the core web vitals is that it's not just about speed it's also about. The experience of the page. Does the page jump around. Does the page respond input and in fact. That is the three core web vitals. There's largest tempur paint which is a measure of one. Something meaningful appears on page. There's f. i d. Which is i input delay. And that's a measure of how quickly the page response to any input. Like a click. Or scroll and then finally we have cunard layout shift which is a measure of how much the page jumps around as rendering. So it's almost like a more holistic view of the page experience and not just about speed but it's also about having pleasing experience as you get the page loaded and interact with it. I think it's also important to say that a lot of your user experience and or technical staff of bharati heard of these terms in the past and maybe are already tracking them before this was announced. But there's a lot of little intricacy to worry about with how google is calculating them that you wanna be careful to take into consideration so that you don't rely on non google definitions of those terms one of the things that i took away from some of google's announcements last year and the rollout of core web vitals that they are actually talking about what their ranking factors are. Carl as you mention. Google is essentially assigning values to how they're figuring out what they consider to be a good page experience. It's one of the most important ranking factors that at least they've publicly stated and there's https and some of the security protocols and some of the other things that google on the technical side of said. This is how we evaluate pages. Kathy you also mentioned that. Normally they don't give us an advance notification of when something is rolling out normally they roll it out and then tell us to me the separation of church and state here is when it's a content ranking factor. How do we figure out whether something is relevant to the audience. We're going to do it and then tell you when it is a tactical ranking factor. They give us a little bit more notice so that brings us to the conversation about making the business case. What the business. Impact of the rollout of core web vitals. We know that some of our clients are having a pretty easy time of getting the organization to focus on some of these court web vitals and with some of other clients or some other organizations. We've talked to. They've had to beat the drums a little bit to get upper management or other departments to really pay attention because it takes a while to really diagnose problems with your poor web vitals not like updating a title tag. It's definitely more involved than that. When i think core web vitals. I know it's kind of in the seo bucket because google made the announcement and it definitely is going to impact your ranking. But it really shouldn't be thought of just benefiting seo a pleasing page experience at loads quickly response to input and doesn't visually jump around is good for everything. It's good for your conversions. It's good for your bounce rate. And if i'm in an oral at have to help make the case for allocating the appropriate vestment for working core web vitals. Those are the arguments. I would make and google's actually published quite a bit of studies as well as some of the science had behind the four webb vitals. One of the comments. I'm going to quote this directly out of the google article. We found that when a site needs the above thresholds in these thresholds. They given us for the poor web. Vitals users are twenty four percent less likely to abandon page loads by leaving the page before any content has been painted. So it's just not an seo thing to be good for your conversions. It's going to be good for people not abandoning shopping hearts. So i think that's the business case you really need to make mean yes. Of course we all want higher rankings but it is all about making the experience so good that all your other core. Kpi's are gonna benefit as well. And i think if you have a department they're gonna be your best friends in selling the impact of it. They're going to have very very similar goals to what you want to accomplish. So i would definitely get together with them to make sure that you explained from an seo perspective and most of the time they're going to agree with you and that you can join forces to sell it. I think the business impact here is. There are potential ranking impacts. That are going to be significant. That google has said a year in advance. These are the metrics that were going to be evaluating for some of our technical ranking factors. If this was not important. Google would not have given us so much. Lead time to be able to optimize our site for these metrics. They pulled his was going to happen. They provided the metrics. And now they're actually giving a general sense of the timeline of when it's going to roll out my feeling is that this is gonna be something that will heavily impact. Seo performance. I think that the case that you to have mentioned is hey. This is good for the overall experience. This is going to impact business performance and we should take it seriously because google has given the search community a long time a long leash a lot of leeway to be able to implement changes to optimize towards these metrics. Am i wrong to think that this is going to be a big deal when it rolls out of any sense of the type of impact that core web vitals might have when it actually comes alive to market well. Of course the big hundred thousand dollar question is how much impact will either good or poor core. We're vitals. i think it's important to just make the point. That content is still important. I mean if you're pages not a great match for the searcher intent and it doesn't satisfy the surge even if you have great core web vitals you still going to struggle but there are plenty of market and niches especially like an ecommerce where the differentiation between the different pages is not that big and at that point. Google's got to pick someone to rank in position one and if most the pages are just product pages and they're kind of similar you can bat that four by bills will have an impact on who makes it into position one.

"Defense. There is a strong likelihood that more than 17 Republicans will, because essentially, that argument is this was justified. The attack on the capital in the attempt to to end the congressional hearing on certifying the election was justified because all these charges are true, and frankly, they aren't they have given been given every opportunity to prove him in a court of law, and it failed to do so. So I think it really boils down to what's the defense that the president is gonna He's gonna make it If it's Rudy Giuliani's defense, I think there's a raises the likelihood of more than 17. Republicans voting for conviction. That's the problem with our side. Karl Rove that little clip of Karl Rove on Fox News Sunday. Is an encapsulation. I mean, what was that 36 seconds. That is everything you need to know about the swamp on the right. Hey, Karl Rove. Rudy Giuliani. Did not. And nobody on the president's team has said that the violence on Capitol Hill was justified by election fraud. You lying hack Oh, she's so angry. So angry. And secondly, The idea. But you are Providing a scenario In which the president would be convicted in the Senate. Is more view wishful thinking than anything else. Hate Showing clips of people like that except to illustrate a point. Karl Rove. You made it by lying about your fellow Americans. You any relevance as a deputy chief of staff under the Bush administration, and today you're actually An impediment. The conservative movement reforming itself. And you have no idea why we elected..

Seven bear was born to a german jewish family in eighteen eighty five and after his delivery the midwife said to his mother something along the lines of congratulations on the birth of your lovely daughter but the midwife had a different conversation with carl's father saying that this newborn babies body was ambiguous and that it wasn't clear whether she should call the baby male or female today we might have described him as intersex so the family went to see a doctor and added that when they registered carl's birth they would register him as a girl and give him girls name. But as carl grew up he had a very clear sense of his own self. He later described himself as a boy who was being raised as girl and his own writing he said quote one may raise a healthy boy in a womanish manner as one wishes and a female creature as manish never will. This caused their senses to remain forever reversed and his growing up was not easy at all. He was expected to play with girls but he didn't feel like a girl and the girls also seemed to suspect. Somehow he wasn't one of them not only did he not like most of the pastimes that were considered to be appropriate for girls but the girls in his community excluded him from playing with them his behavior and his interests and as he grew into a teenager his appearance and voice were more in line with what was expected of boys than what was expected of girls in one thousand nine hundred four at the age of nineteen he moved to hamburg.
