THIS Ruling Makes Prosecuting Voter Fraud in Texas Impossible

"I had a rather disturbing conversation with Ken Paxton the attorney general of Texas on the podcast. We were talking about election fraud and I've talked about the role of the attorney general in prosecuting election fraud. And he talked about candidly, the Texas court of criminal appeals, blocking him, Ken Paxton, blocking the attorney general from being able to prosecute such cases in effect saying that they have to be prosecuted. It has to be by the local DAs. And by the way, the local DAs are typically democratic DAs in democratic precincts and democratic cities. So the net effect of it can Paxton was saying, is that it becomes more difficult. In fact, maybe impossible to really go after voter fraud in Texas and you are listening to all this and you know a number of the people involved and well, you know, I actually, I was instrumental in two of these elected officials because they are elected officials, the court of criminal appeals are elected judges and two of them were actually running for this court for the first time back in, I think it was 2013 time frame 2014 somewhere around there. And as you know, I was the head of a Republican women's club called spirit of freedom, and I had them come to my meetings. I help promote them, all those things. And we became friends. I became friends with two of them, one of them is Kevin Erie. And the other one is David Newell, and Kevin was the only what do you call it descending? And I praised him for it. I said, thank you, thank you, thank you. David Newell, I'm very disappointed that you did this. This ruling because, you know, I'm not sure that these judges understand that we have a very, very, very bad election fraud issue in the state of

Why Ken Paxton Set Up Texas's Cold Case and Missing Persons Unit

"I'm back with attorney general of Texas, Ken Paxton. Ken, let's pivot to this new project or new thing you've set up. It's the cold case and missing persons unit. Talk about why you set it up and then let's talk about a specific case in which which I think is really quite remarkable and also quite moving. But talk about first, why did you set up this unit? Yeah, so I set this up because I had heard from people around the state. They were frustrated, particular cases I could name of cases just not being solved. People not having the resources to solve and there's really no repository for these cases. And so we had a prosecutor leaving the Travis county DA's office who was going to be allowed to stay there anymore in prosecute because that's not what they do in Travis county anymore. So I hired her and I said, look, I don't have any real resources, the legislature and provide a, I want you to start this cold case unit. You have a passion for it. You know how to do it. Use the resources that we have existing and hopefully if you're successful and we can start solving some of these cases to provide justice for people, then we can have an opportunity maybe to increase the size and give you some more resources because there's literally thousands of unsolved cases in

Texas AG Ken Paxton Reacts to Bill Barr's January 6 Testimony

"Guys, I'm really happy to welcome back to the podcast Ken Paxton, the attorney general of Texas, Ken great to see you again. You're looking good and hey, let's talk a little bit about elections. Did you happen to catch attorney general Barr yesterday? He was talking generally about voter fraud, but he specifically also talked about 2000 mules. Any response or thoughts about Barr's testimony? You know, I didn't get to hear very much of it because I was traveling, but the part I heard, he was pretty much discounting that there had been any election fraud in correct me if I'm wrong. I couldn't have disagreed more given the fact that my state was involved in so many lawsuits related to them trying to use mail in ballots like they did in other states and you'll notice in 2000 mules Texas wasn't in the show because we were able to we were able to win 12 lawsuits to stop it from happening here in

Elon Musk Threatens to Walk Away From Twitter Deal

"Kara, first of all, I got some breaking news that came to me in my ear before we joined and I want to talk about this. Elon Musk and Twitter. Now we all know that Elon Musk was scheduled to acquire Twitter, but now with the bot situation, the pretty much what happened is that there have been deceitful. They claim that it was worth more than what it really is because bots do not count for success and it does not count for involvement and engagement. So he may walk away from this. Can you talk a little bit about this and give us your thoughts on Elon Musk potentially walking away from the Twitter deal? Yeah, there are a couple of schools of thoughts here. Well, one of them thinks that, okay, maybe Elon is just trying to get himself more favorable terms for this deal. Oh, he is a businessman after all. The richest man in the world doesn't become rich by spending all his money. So there is an idea that, okay, he might be trying to negotiate for a better deal. And he actually might still be committed fully to the acquisition. He said as much a few weeks ago when all of this consternation about Twitter's what they're actually saying about their bot levels are started roiling around. This seems to be the most serious step that he's taken in order to potentially extricate himself from the acquisition. You know, lawyers sending letters around, it could be sort of gamesmanship, but it also could be very serious. And what I think is really interesting in this regard is more breaking news. The attorney general from Texas Ken Paxton, he basically said that if this is true, then we are going to take it to Twitter and he filed what's basically looking at Texas deceptive trade practices act to protect the Texan consumer. So he's taking what Elon is saying very seriously in his statement. He targeting Twitter. He basically said, they said it was about 5% in their public documents, but it might be as much as 20%. So it looks like Elon is creating a little bit of a snowball effect when it comes to Twitter's woes. So, you know, I've heard the Elon Musk take over touted as the free market solution, you know, this is why tech companies don't have to be reined in because we've got billionaires, you know, waiting to buy these platforms. Not true. Whatsoever. Look how difficult this has been. So in my estimation, it's a little naive to think that we're going to have white knights riding out of the woodwork to save us conservatives from censorship and the abuses these big tech companies are visiting upon the American people. And I don't think it's a replicable strategy. I hope Elon prevails, but it's looking really sticky at this point.

"I'm a conservative, but I do have to disagree. I mean, since they've already drugged millions of immigrants up here, which I hate and don't want ever to happen, we've got them trapped and we've kind of have to keep them fed. Who's got them tracks? I would say. Who's got what does that mean? We've got such a small percentage. Wait a minute, wait a minute. Wait a minute, wait a minute. Wait a minute. What does that mean? We've got them trapped. Who's got them? Pretty much got them up here with their kids and everything. We can't send them back now, unfortunately, I wish we could. But if we are more bound to stay focused, how did we trap women crossing the border illegally who are pregnant or who have children? What do you mean we've got them trapped here? Look, I think we should have left them across the border like Trump had. I'm all for that. But now that they're in our facilities, we have the moral, we have to feed them.

"Julie Kelly, welcome back to America first. Thanks for having me. I wanted to say I concluded my lovely Mother's Day last night by watching 2000 mules. It is just mind-blowing. You can not conceive that this happened in America that has been covered up this long. And I encourage anyone who has not yet seen it to take the hour and a half and sit down and watch it. I'm going to watch it again. Because I'm sure I've missed something, but great work there. Thank you, Julie. Salem now, dot com, watch the movie stream. It ordered the DVDs you've got to watch it. Okay, so The Washington Post gets a Pulitzer for its coverage of January 6th. This weekend, we saw against federal code and against Virginia code justice is being harassed outside their homes. Nobody arrested nobody a charge with sedition and insurrection. Would you give us an update, Julie on the latest developments with the political prisoners here in D.C.? Yes, first I want to say something about The Washington Post. Aside from other hyperbolic coverage and editorializing, they did a three part series about January 6th, which is a trove. Of little nuggets of information as to how certain lawmakers and officials in Washington, D.C., Avi knew so much ahead of time what was going to happen on January 6th. I've actually relied on that quite a bit, for example, Liz Cheney bringing a Secret Service agent retired Secret Service agent to the capitol that day and some other kids. Hang on, hang on, hang on, hang on. Liz Cheney had special protection on January 6th, so how did she know? Well, that's a great question. No one will ask, but that was a little tidbit in The Washington Post extensive investigation. It's what happened before during and after we also found out that Adam kinzinger told his staff not to come in that day, and I believe the reports that he brought a firearm, I believe that that's what The Washington Post in this series

What Happens Now With Roe v Wade? Ken Klukowski Weighs In

"We are back with Ken kowalski, a man who we rely upon for our legal advice here in America first. We're talking about the Supreme Court decision. What happens now? I've heard a lot of theories that the left screwed up here. They sort of wait until June and then the nuclear bomb effect of this dropping in June, closer to the elections would have been more useful to them. I've heard theories today that now nobody can back down the 5 justices can not back down because then it would make them look as if they were weak and gave into the mob. You've been watching the Supreme Court for years now. This is truly unprecedented in the modern age. So what kind of scenarios are we looking at until June and the official vote? Well, for one thing, Seb, I'll be putting an article up today, urging the justices to get the opinion out as quickly as possible. I mean, the draft that we saw was from February 10 that they would have continued to polish it and edit it since that time. So I think the opinion could be could be in good condition to actually be issued as is right now as in like this week. Now if there are other justices who are still writing concurring opinions or dissenting opinions, none of those have the force of law and they can just issue that whenever they're ready to do so. But the justices in the majority have the authority whenever they vote to do it, to just go ahead and release the opinion. And I would recommend doing so as quickly as possible. So that we can all move forward. So this is an official opinion. It's on the clock. It's in the books. And let me segue straight from that to another point you mentioned. And that is that, yes, I believe that every day, every additional day that transpires. Between this decision becoming official in November's election day is that tens of millions of Americans are going to realize that the left has lied to them for half a century about what the effect of overruling road would

Ken Klukowski: 'Roe Was a Horribly Written Opinion'

Ken Klukowski: 'Roe Was a Horribly Written Opinion'

"Roe was a horribly written opinion. Arguably, there's not a single paragraph in that opinion that is actual legal reasoning where you unpack the law and then apply it to facts. You get philosophical musings in there. They talk about ancient Greece and whatnot. Stuff that has nothing to do with how you interpret the American constitutions. And so when the court in 1992 by a 5 to four vote, it shows not to overrule roe V wade, which was from 1973. The court threw out everything in roe. It's trimester framework and all of this other stuff had done. Because Rome was just an embarrassment. I forgot to mention, and the trimester framework was just cut from whole cloth. They made up this trimester framework where the state has an interest, the state doesn't have an interest. And there was no legal justification. They just made it up. That's right. That was justice blackman who just was who said looking back on his life that he would rather have gone to med school than to law school. And so, you know, read into that what you will. But that's right. Understanding that that was a legally indefensible framework they threw that out and then Casey brought in what was a viability standard that instead of three parts of a pregnancy, there's only two. There is before a child is viable outside the womb and then after it's viable and the issue of whether something is an undue burden on a woman seeking an abortion before viability and but that too proved to be a completely unworkable framework and that was a, that was a big part of justice Alito's opinion

Sebastian Chats With Ken Klukowski About the Impending Roe Decision

"We have somebody who I trust for legal advice who's worked in the Trump administration at the DoJ practicing lawyer breitbart contributor, you've got to read his latest pieces at breitbart dot com. His can clockhouse can. Welcome back to America first. Great to be with you. Thanks for having me. All right, I'm going to just say what I think about the Supreme Court draft decision. Because I'm not a lawyer, but I read all 70 pages recently. And you know what shocked me and maybe I should read more of these documents, it was a fabulous historic tour de rizon. It was a treatise. It wasn't full of mumbo jumbo that a layman couldn't understand. First it was this amazing historic review of how the law treated abortion in western civilization going back to the 17th century in the UK, the concept of quickening. And then basically this conclusion that until roe V wade, it was illegal in America, and then it was a segment by segment dismantling of both roe and Casey saying it's just bad law and analyzing started decisis in other concepts. So Ken, give me your illegal professional opinion, is this an unusually good pre decisional draft, or is this because it's a Leto who's riding it? Well, first of all, justice alita was a brilliant justice. His opinions are uniformly wonderful. But what you just described in as I read it as well, it reminds me of the late justice Scalia's opinion in District of Columbia versus hello. Yeah. Which held that the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms is an individual right from 2008. That opinion was also almost exactly the same page length. That was a little over 60 pages. And what you saw there is what a well written Supreme Court opinion is supposed to look like. This is an original list decision. One that looks to the text, structure, and history of the constitution, and in this case, in terms of looking at the history of a purported right to abortion, showing why. This is in fact not a right found in the U.S.

Why Is Watergate So Misunderstood? Lord Conrad Black Explains

"Lord black have to discuss. The first things first in the break, you mentioned the reputation of The Washington Post. You've written a work on Nixon, could you just give us your historic understanding of the reporting of Watergate and why so many people misunderstand what they actually wrote and why the conventional wisdom on that reportage is so wrong. Of course, complicated subject, but to be fair, but if the contents at a great deal, there has never been one shred of probative evidence that a serious court in a dispassionate atmosphere would accept as conclusive. That mister Nixon himself committed any crimes. He certainly didn't know anything about the break in of the Watergate. First entry before it happened and was horrified when it didn't happen. And that his people at anything to do with it. And the so called cover up consisted of his admittedly not telling the truth to the public several times. That is true. But the presidents do that to me sometimes. And he wasn't under oath and it wasn't a crime. He squandered a lot of political capital as he himself admitted that it wasn't a crime. And the case against Congress essentially on the theory that money was advanced by the Republican National Committee with his approval, the pay for the legal bills of attendance in the Watergate affair. And he did do that. But he didn't do it. And he did authorize him, but not under any basis of altered testing, not to get them to tell anything other than the truth. He was paying the money to them. So that they would have the legal fees paid, be able to take care of their families while the trials went on. And wouldn't be absolute sitting decks were prosecutors saying, all right, we'll do a plea bargain. We'll let you up lightly, but you denounce the people above you and take it straight up to the Oval Office door, which is the way the prosecutors work, particularly in the District of Columbia, which is, you know, that was a 90% democratic voting electoral

Do You Trust Elon Musk? Chris Buskirk Shares His Thoughts

"Where do you stand on the whole Twitter Elon Musk war? Do you think he's a good actor? Do you think he can bring changes or is this just a catamaran to the pigeons that we watch for entertainment as the blue check mark commentary at go insane? Here's my sense of this. And I'm not privy to any information that other people don't have in his public. But I kind of feel like this is one of those moments that could be like when president Trump came down the escalator in 2015 and a lot of people were wondering is this guy for real? He's flirted with running for president before. Is this a publicity stunt? And of course, it was very much real. And some people got that very early on in the summer of 2015 and others it took a while and my sense is that this there might be a parallel here with Elon in Twitter. People wonder is this just Elon being Elon and does he have some other agenda here? Elon has a long track record of being very much in favor of free speech. And you don't believe that that is essential to any type of representative government. And so I think that he is a good actor here. Again, we'll see over time, but my sense is that he's really trying to do something that would be a blow for free speech. And we'll just see how that plays out, but my sense is that this is actually a good

Okay, so much to discuss, especially with my old boss endorsing JD Vance at the weekend, but first things first. You haven't seen the movie, but if we have footage of mules, stuffing bags of ballots into Zuckerberg drop boxes, in states where ballot harvesting is illegal like Georgia. And this gets released now as a shrewd political observer, editor of this website. Do you think that can be swept under the rug? Or do you think that could have an impact in the midterms, Chris? I think it will have an impact in the midterms. You know how the progression of these things always goes is it didn't happen. It's a conspiracy theory. If it did happen, it was good. It's this whole thing that we're living out in real time right now. But I have actually seen some extended clips from the movie and some of the work that the nation has done and through the vote is done. It is, I think it is shocking. I mean, it's shocking in the sense of being appalling. And the video evidence, I think, is very, very strong. A lot of people are going to see this who kind of felt like something went wrong, but they couldn't quite put their finger on it. They just had that intuition that things didn't smell right. And they've got, they've got a lot of evidence in this movie that is very, very powerful. I think we'll have a big impact on the elections on the way people think about 2020. And yes, there will be a conspiracy of silence in the corporate media about this movie about the evidence it presents. But this is exactly the opportunity for prosecutor, maybe the attorney general in Georgia to do the right thing.

And the title of the call is Black Lives Matter was 5 hours and 26 minutes long. The title of the call. Black Lives Matter. MBA referees. Yes. Because you were going to referee the George Floyd trial or what? You know what? I don't know what kind of critical role. What precipitated the call, all I know is it was one of the worst experiences I had ever experienced as a professional referee because when one or two white referees tried to say something that was very one man said, gentlemen, I'm with you. I understand your situation. I don't understand your plight because I'm not black, but I've been with you for 30 years, 40 years.

"And welcome to Asian America that can find podcasts where our mission continues to be to invite Asian American culture makers and shapers to share their stories with us. And as always, I'm your host, Ken fong. Welcome to episode number 348. This is the first the toucans collaborative episode of 2022. Ken Kemp is Ken camp is a former pastor like myself. He used to be my clergy text prepare for many, many years. And he is also currently a podcaster. So we have lots in common, especially when it comes to thinking about life, faith, and the political landscape. Our main focus this episode our fossils, time, and the evolution of faith. We get to it eventually in the second half of this conversation. But before we get there, we have an honest and thoughtful conversation about how recently discovered 72 million year old dinosaur embryo fossil can actually make us look at ourselves and human history in a very different way. But before we get there, we talk about how sometimes not always surprises can show up in the very midst of being disappointed. We also talk about the new hit TV show, the cleaning lady on Fox, which has been a mainstay of how I ended the last year and started this year. It's really, really good. And it was great to hear how Ken, who is an older white male, how he and his wife connected to the story and really enjoyed it. When we finally do shift into our main area of conversation, we get into how both of us have de compartmentalized our faith in God and our belief in real science. I think it's a rich and rare conversation between two old friends who start this new year extra grateful to have rediscovered each other because our journeys have been separate, but parallel in so many ways. These two can episodes really give me a chance to share a little bit more about my own thinking and my own journey, then I typically do when I have a guest, which is normally what I do. So even if you have a different perspective on faith and.

I think this inner conflict of you know how to deal with this and how to progress and You know like you described someone earlier. He comes across his contrite. Really wanted to see people healed. And i think he would love to do it over again. I think he'd be happy if he had never written that bestselling book. I think sometimes though when you were one of the main forces in causing so much damage that even though you're genuinely contrite and you wish you can have a major do over. It can come across as clueless. Yes so it's just better to say you know what. I'm just gonna eat humble pie every day. The rest of my life. I'll be out of the spotlight. I don't need a microphone. I don't care if someone wants to write a book and gives me this huge advance. Like they can camp. It's better for me to just disappear into the woodwork. That to me is the real test of whether they really are contrition israel. Yeah and it again. It kind of goes to this This rock star status that we give to religious leaders in this culture were and it's very hard to resist know even if you kind of switch teams it yes. It's really hard to resist. I'll tell you what. Can i love these conversations. This has been so good to unpack some of this stuff. It's so real.

Or you're going to go on your hero's journey and are going to start living and being the way that you know in your heart it's better for you and for everybody so i would say it's a choice.

"Welcome to asian america. They can find. Podcast are ongoing. Mission is to identify invite asia break and culture makers in culture shapers shared their stories with us and as always. I'm your host. Ken fog want to welcome you to episode number three hundred twenty two. This is the latest addition of the special and recurring the two cats episode. And this is where instead of a guest. My longtime friend and fellow podcast or ken camp and i get to interact around pressing issue. This is an example of kind of cross podcast pollination. His podcast has been around for a little more than a year. We have different audiences. Were good friends. And so this has been great because when you have a guest you don't really get to get into issues so much personally. But without a guest and with two hosts. It's a lot of fun. This particular episode. We are talking about a netflix documentary. That's been getting a lot of attention. Recently called pray away and it's all about the harm done to gays and lesbians by conservative christians to coerce them into thinking that they could just quote. Pray away the gay but that particular topic as usually happens directed candidate to examine why so many of us choose to join groups or organizations and this includes religious groups that require us to repress something about who we really are as always. It's a great conversation that i know you will really enjoy before we get to that episode. I want to follow up on last week's conversation with writer and director bow His martial arts flicked. The paper tigers received a rare one hundred percent recommendation from rotten tomatoes. And just a few weeks ago was listed. Among the ten most watched shows on net flicks not too shabby right well. Afterwards i received a lengthy comment on my podcast. Facebook page from very ticked off listener. This doesn't happen too often. And this is what he wrote. Bow tran why did you have asians say. And then the n. word. I turned it off after that. You have no respect for black people. What have you learned from that. And i don't think cancel culture or your black friend is something you can hide behind or this that i don't really care about a condo unless it's a commitment to not do that going forward but i doubt you're open if it made it to the final cut even if bill maher apologized for using it no excuses and i'm black by the way so this was a little jarring I do appreciate the fact that this listener took the time to actually leave this comment on his facebook page. I happened to be shampooing. The carpets in our house the next day and so rather than quickly respond. I've done that in the past and it usually. It's not a good idea. I actually spent the time while. I was shampooing. The rugs thinking about how it was going to respond now. There was an option not to respond. And i felt like no response when this person took the time to actually let me know that they're upset that would have been bad for so. This is ultimately. What i responded back. You know. i remember being jolted when one of the street pumps in the movie called the old washed up. Asian american martial artist the n. Word but for reasons. I can't explain. I failed in my job as the host. When i didn't ask tran why he chose to leave the n. Word in the script. I promise you that. I will email him and ask him this question and if and when he responds i will share his response and this listener very genuinely thanked me for doing that. Well so i emailed bow and he was nice enough to respond the next day. It was pretty apparent that this is a question. He's been asked before when talking about this film. This is what he said. Hey cad those punk characters are young and brash an offensive. In contrast with the old tigers s filmmakers we are certainly not condoning but we wanted to reflect it. Yes there are asian americans who use that word free the is it appropriation. Is it offensive. Those are the questions we raise. And you'll see that play out in the rest of the scene where there is eventually a begrudging apology. I hope that people can give the whole movie affair. Watch and pay attention to what is actually happening in the story. Now i get where my listeners coming from but i also get where trend is coming from as well he wrote. This script directed this movie to be realistic which obviously was risky but having viewed that particular scene two times i can appreciate that. He also had the punks apologize for using that offensive term. I'm not sure that if the listener who wrote to me head watched the entire scene. If he then would've agreed with trans decision he did say that he reflexively turned off the movie as soon as he heard them utter the inward and. I'm not sure if that listener is going to be satisfied with trans response. The use of the n. Word might simply be a bridge too far for him. And i can appreciate that but i'll tell you one thing on kicking myself now that as the host. I didn't think to delve into this during the interview. That would have given trenin me much more time to talk about why he chose to take this kind of risk. And i wanna finish this introduction by talking about the importance of taking big risks whether it always works out or not over the past seven years. The majority of my guest came to my attention mostly mainly because they are risk-takers. Here's a few examples. Dan kuramoto founded the first asian american studies program at a major university when he was basically a fine arts major just kind of hanging out in the park playing the flute and he also founded here shema the first asian american jazz fusion band that just celebrated its fortieth anniversary in twenty twenty. That was a huge risk there. Also a former air force. Captain pete son who was handpicked for a special ops team to hunt down osama bin laden right after nine eleven and he and his team actually located where bin laden was hiding in tora bora mountains but they couldn't call the army rangers.

The encampment homeless don't want rules. They don't wanna live under antibodies requirements. And he goes to shelter people. They were more into the fact that well. I know i'm here temporarily. i'm trying to get my life back together. Says night and day and that's where he said the encampment people. Do you have to be tough on them. Because this is who they are.

I don't know if you've heard this story but last thursday night. And we know this well from san francisco but it certainly happening all over the state. Thanks to prop forty-seven a worker at a rite aid. English sell park thirty six year old man. He apparently decided to try to stop some shoplifters. They fatally shot him. Yeah oh you can't do that. Two guys came into the store. Try to leave the store at the case of beer each and i guess he just tried to do the right thing and say you can't do that and they turned around and shot him. This is about nine o'clock too bad day night. I i guess didn't understand. He lives in a city with the people who run the city like our city Don't care about life property they don't care the everybody's got free rein to take whatever they want and you try to step in. You're going to get the bullet. Miguel penalty loza was his name. They're doing a go fund me for his family and they're still looking for the killers who by the way these people. No i mean. Now they're talking about there's organized crime groups that go out there and do these shoplifting. Nouns baba and the cars drove up during the looting last year and they loaded up. They're still doing this. But you know it's morse based out basis. They just hit certain stores like that neiman. Marcus video exactly. Yeah that's right so this is this is gaskins. Law prop forty seven. You could still almost a thousand dollars and you're not going to get arrested anymore for it. So that's what they're doing. They're walking in taking what they want. You can't get in the way they will kill you. It's like the guy who chased the homeless person that had santa. Monica place guide stolen car when he got run over twice. He did. These people are crazy and and they're gonna kill and they know there's not going to be a consequence you down with workers are asking that they start adding security remember in san francisco. There was a security guard but the guy just modem over with a bicycle and kept going out the door unless the security guard can shoot to kill. Shoot to kill a case of beer. It's that's the thing all goes back to the law. The law says. Oh it's demeanor if you steal under nine hundred fifty bucks the shoplifters no this it's like all right so what even by get caught it's a it's a citation care you to have the police aggressively policing neighborhood and then this guy feels intimidated. You actually have to have. The police presence intimidate these characters and if he gets caught you throw them in prison forever but they don't wanna do that now so he wins and the employee is is dead. He's in the dirt.

"Story guard agreed to do this. Some story about caroline. If you share your story about absolutely snoopy. I i'm ready the good and You know i. I think i think they're ready for it and i do want to answer it but i wanted to. Just start by affirming what you said and you know as i. I don't know that. I've thought about russell moore and beth more but i can see in both those cases that for the spouse. It's really about friendships. And it's also about watching their spouse attacked by their former friends. And that is that is deeply deeply hurtful. It's traumatic it's it's trauma and You know i. I don't know their marriages So i i would only speculate. But i i i. It seems to me like they're working through this together. That's an and i'd like to say that's been true for us too but also want to say that we being around this conversation about deconstruction has exposed me to more than a few people whose marriages have blown up. Because of this. I mean you go to you marched down the aisle and you put the rings on the finger and you make a promise in front of all these people and you think you know each other and a lot of the assumptions you make about each other are are pretty firmly in place but then as the years go by we change we evolve. We learn we grow and Thankfully i've got to say that after all these years caroline. I have really really grown together. But that's not to say that that are Marriage hasn't been strained over this You know. I know there are some people even in my family who think that because caroline i are still together on most of these issues political theological and other and we're not totally in sync i mean caroline caroline's concepts and ideas about things that are not the same as mine. Were not identical. We're not cookie cutters on those issues but But people will say and they think that all caroline is just a wonderfully submissive and and she just devoted to her husband and she loves her husband so she's just kind of because she admires his brilliant since intelligence and everything. She's just kind of going top. Yes that's obvious. But that could be further from the truth and i tell you what it was for caroline for care for me. It was having a rough experience in a church job that i had that threw me into the dark night of the soul and raising lots of margins and a lot of people On my podcast know about that For caroline it was actually working for a christian university where she was exposed to all sorts of things. I mean there were political debates among the phd's and a lot of the assumptions were challenged and she encountered different lifestyles. We had an underground gay and lesbian community. At this christian college. She ended up befriending a wonderful couple. That actually lost a son who came out as gay to suicide. That was a long story and it was a you know it was actually involved in exodus in reparation therapy and blah. She's dealing with a parent. Now who's filling all this guilt and grief over. Having bought into this notion that she could not accept her son for who he was and now he's dead and You know those things really really shook the foundations for both of us and And and and she has been learning and growing and reading and tuning into podcasts and following you know people who are on this journey of Of trying to shed the old stuff. That just doesn't work anymore and trying to discover something new that is even more energetic and vibrant and alive And so we're we're kind of on that journey together but it has been painful because we have family members it just do not understand appreciate can't even engage in the conversation with us. It's not easy. You may be all you're saying that may be in a wolf. what if it was a different scenario. So what if. Ken had never deconstructed was just right in the pocket of white christian nationalism without the tags and labels right and it was your wife that actually had that experience at the university and had started this deconstruction journey and then the word started filtering back to your parisioners that you know almost the opposite of what you said. People wrongly assume why caroline still with you on this is like ten reeling. Your wife light. Yeah like maker submit like she. She is becoming a problem to you. I mean that happens to happens to it. Happens to it does and And i've seen that and you've seen that but this is the this is the whole business of the tribe. This closed exclusive tribe that writes all the rules and rights the narrative and if you step outside that narrative you become one of them you become one of them. You're no longer one of us now. How that's gonna and that's where that's where it really starts to sound like a cult. Yes yes yes it does and i. I'm afraid that a lot of religious experiences. Is it sadly cultish it. It is sadly cultures. Okay cancel how about you. You know you've made some pretty fundamental changes in your perspective you you pastored a baptist church for many many years Ten years before your retirement you changed your mind about. Lgbtq in your community Paid a price for it but it opened up a whole new world of connection and ministry for you..

And i listened to asian america that kim fong podcast regularly as well can and you know what i've said it before and i think if you've been listening to my podcast you know i talk about you now. And then because you adult even in the asian american community that i've tried to transfer into my tribal community and that's kind of what emerges and i deal with. Folks who are are are are finding themselves asking really big questions and they have trouble finding a place where they can be open about it. you know. They're they're accustomed to raising some of these questions and then either being shut down or been been given some kind of a simple bromide. That doesn't work you know. And then the subject to change and we just talk about something else but here. We're trying to just open the door to those those bigger questions and you have. You've really set the pace for me bro. On that one well. It's not because of a positive big questions. they're everywhere. Read it right right. Well i mean you. You're the one that kind of Stimulated what we're going to really focus on in a big way. Which is this whole critical race theory. Which is really getting a lot of airplay everywhere now. And yeah and you send me an article by an asian american professor of from new york who who's also christian who basically had put out a public challenge to a policy american politicians who identified as christians right of whom are are members of certain churches or or temples and was basically saying. It's not enough for you to Well it's not his way say he's saying it's not enough for chris. Christian groups to condemn anti asian racism. I need a we need to hear. And i'm one of the undersigned. We need to hear self identified christian politicians who've been fomenting anti asian. Racism confess this sin and to repent of this and if they fail to do it that their pastors or denominational leaders will actually take action. Because this is sinning against asian-americans what you know and and i love that because that that really is where the problem is i mean i. I mean i. I've read a couple articles. Usa today washington Has done article new york times And they they're talking about this critical race theory and how much play it is getting in the conservative media. Like i heard a statistic that like in the last thirty days. The phrase critical race theory has appeared on fox news over fifteen hundred times. They're just hammering and hammering it and hammering it and they're making it sound like this is like the end of america because critical race theory has gone wild in all our universities in the liberal media. And what the democrat party and blah blah blah. It kinda hits me personally can't next week. Starting my next table talk. It's the third one. I've done now and we're talking about the history of whiteness in america. This is a serious issue. But according to these guys who were attacking Attacking critical race theory that nobody should sign up for my class. And i probably ought to be exiled for even giving the class. hear that. fox's is already bought you your tickets you move to communist china yes. i'm waiting. No brad brad the onofre inbred onishi has been attacked by the right. Now you know in public. I'm i'm not quite there yet. I'm the beach. White male hasn't quite hit that higher profile. You don't feel the sting of that. I guess but it could be coming to me. It could be well. You know that's gonna be our main landing point but there's a related more personal way to start this two cans episode can and that is you know as i'm thinking about Like let's say some of these politicians senator marsha blackburn senator ted cruz the doctor calling names you know. I think most of them are married. They are and and typically the people that any of us. Mary tend to if the marriage is gonna last. Tend to have pretty solid alignments on worldview primary value for. So let's just say for the sake argument. That ted cruz. Holy spirit convicts him. And he's like you know what i am going to publicly confess that i have sinned against all people of color but especially asian americans and i repent of this. I will no longer right. What would mrs ted cruz be thinking. Because they're in their two peas in the same pot. Okay yes and so. So before we get into the critical race theory Landing this this kind of tension issue in a little bit more of the christian realm not too long ago to christian leaders named more not related to each other right. That's name more. Both of them left the southern baptist convention when the largest protestant denomination in america very conservative and also tied up in the whole condemning of critical race. One was beth moore who has built this empire of teaching a bible study and she's still been very quiet about race the racist history of the southern baptist. But she finally had had enough with the patriarchy as as as a profoundly anointed female leader within there and so she left on thinking so what does for husband thing. 'cause for her to leave that tribe i mean when she was hunky dory with it then he kinda gets the benefit of her being so well regarded so lots of friends lots of connections. You know if their community. So what about that. And then dr russell moore who was ahead of the southern baptist ethics division here's x. vocal critic of trump and he was didn't slam for that but finally he he he had enough to and so he's left and he's now being condemned by the baptist leadership. But what about mrs russell. More yes like i did. She have any say in what. He publicly declared. And i'm just thinking about this ten. Because you and i have been on our respective journeys as we have to do point. We've talked about it here. So i want to start by asking you the question. What what has it been like for. Mrs kim kim caroline your wife as she his bible grad what the trinity seminary work on the staff of the chuck. Swindle back in the day head all these ties with world vision. What have you. She says sale right along. But then as you started becoming more and more open and comfortable with your own deconstruction. Were she in all of that did she. Give you any pushback. And how have you landed today. Okay all my listeners. Know that i'm married to caroline and and i think your listeners know that you are married to sharon are we like to call her. Snoopy snoopy so i'll tell you what can here's the deal..
