Joe Biden Lies About Dallas Shooting
"On my column this week on the evil hate filled speech of Joe Biden, a bad human being is our president that is my belief. I never said that about any president, my 40 years of broadcasting. So he said in his speech, and it's in my column about his speech, he said he listed a number of. Listed a number of items. That were examples of white supremacist murder as if that is the big thing, and I'm reading I'm reading to you. About that about the lie of I'm typing in here forgive me. That's the reason for this. I want to get this up right now. There we go. So he said in his speech, gave a listing of examples of white supremacist mass shootings. And I analyzed each one of them, one of them had nothing to do with white supremacy only one of them blacks killed. And said, this week in Dallas, Texas, so I looked up what happened in Dallas, Texas. This is the president of the United States, giving a speech. At the in the city of the terrible mass murder of blacks. And he said, last, this week in Dallas, Texas. So I looked it up. There was a mass shooting, three people, three women of Asian descent, were shot. But they were shot by a black man. And the president of the United States, who was a liar. Not one who, on occasion lies, he's a liar. And he said, which is quite remarkable, somebody fed him the lie. I didn't expect him to check it out. Somebody fed him to lie could have been easily ascertained. It was a black man who did the white supremacist, the alleged white supremacist killing.

Biden to sign policing executive order 2 years after George Floyd died
"AP sources say President Biden plans to sign an executive order on policing tomorrow Wednesday is the second anniversary of George Floyd's killing by Minneapolis police Three people familiar with the matter say the president will sign the order alongside Floyd's relatives It would require federal law enforcement to review and revise use of force policies restrict the flow of surplus military gear to local police and encourage limits on choke holds and no knock warrants The order does not go as far as the president originally wanted bipartisan police reform talks stalled in Congress last year The new steps are the results of months of talks between The White House and civil rights groups and police organizations
American Values Can't Be Preserved Without Religion
"By I'll the way, I was going to raise as atopic of our podcast today. Of the issue of God and the Bible ironically, which you just perfectly led a segue to and that you have come to take them seriously. I just interviewed yoram has only an Israeli and American moved to Israel many years ago and his family's obviously Israeli. Hebrew speaking, they also fluent in English. And he's one of the leading conservative thinkers in the world today, and he just wrote a book on conservatism. So he summarized, I always ask people to summarize their ideas. And summarize them, you're not going to win any, anybody over. You need to be able to say things concisely. Not tritely but concisely. So he said, yes, so fine. Here's conservatism, and he said, let's see. It's religion, nationalism, and economic freedom. And I said, that is exactly what I have argued with the American Trinity. E pluribus Unum in God we trust liberty. And he said, that's right. In other words, so he had put in his words exactly what I had been saying for decades is the American value system, as you know, from still the best hope. And so he said religion, I said in God we trust because I took it from our coins. He said economic freedom, I said liberty. He said bash of and I said E pluribus Unum for many one. That's nationalism. What is the one? The one is the one nation of American. So that's, that's what we stand for. And then I developed the discussion with him. The catastrophe of America and even of many conservatives is that they thought that they could preserve these values without in God we trust. Without religion,
Democrat Pollster Suggests Bloody Midterm for Biden
"Don't know if you've been talking about it. Have you heard about this new memo from Doug sosnik? No. Doug sosnik being very senior respected democratic pollster strategist was in the Clinton White House. That's where he became well known and in the 90s. Written this new memo to Democrats. And it's incredibly pessimistic. It says, look, basically, unless we can make something huge about a Supreme Court roe versus wade decision, unless we can pull a rabbit out of our hat. We are toast. And what he does was he lays out the mistakes that the Biden administration has made to bring Democrats to this point and I'll just the real short version is he starts off with a Biden honeymoon. Then July 4th of last year, Biden holds this Independence Day, freedom from COVID event in which he kind of declares the pandemic over and of course we know what happened then. There was a delta variant and then there was omicron. Let's just say COVID wasn't over. The next month is the disastrously bundled withdrawal from Afghanistan and people begin to question these are independents, some Democrats obviously Republicans, whether the Biden administration can confidently handle issues. So when inflation becomes really huge, Americans are worried and Biden suggests that don't worry, we're in control, we're in charge here. We know what to do. They're very skeptical about this because they have already seen what happened with COVID, and they've seen what happened in Afghanistan. Now they're watching it with the economy and they just have absolutely no faith in Biden or democratic efforts to handle things now. And he also said, do not think that voters are going to make their decision in the last couple of weeks before the election. They're making their decision right now. And as a matter of fact, it may already be made right now. This may already be said in stone. It's one of the more pessimistic democratic documents I've seen in quite a while.
Conservatives Fight Back Against Corporate 'Wokeness'
"With this whole corporate wokeness thing, I think a lot of conservative share my view that if you are a corporation who embraces this woke agenda who, among other things, subsidizes an assault on children and parents in public schools, which is what this gender bizarre nonsense really is. You are my enemy and I want to use all our political power to hurt you in retaliation to ensure that you don't do this again. It's not just live and let live. If you cross us, we're going to crush you. And that's what Ron DeSantis did in Florida. And frankly, I don't understand arguments that say corporation can use their culture and political power against us to achieve bizarre and damaging cultural goals. Yet I am we are somehow restrained from using our political power to defeat them. What do you think of that theory? Because I think a lot conservatives are beginning to subscribe to it. Well, there's been a long history of activist groups using boycotts to change the behavior of corporations. I mean, Jesse Jackson in the last 40, 50 years has spent most of his time doing that sort of thing challenging boards of directors, pressuring them, threatening boycotts. Companies do respond to that kind of stuff. And there's no reason that conservative groups couldn't do the same sort of thing. When you see something like this State Farm stuff and I think what we've seen is kind of a lot of business operates on fear, right? I mean, you've seen other businesses get swallowed up when some other company comes in does something better has a better idea, et cetera. So they will respond. So I think that this is actually kind of a healthy thing that we've seen after State Farm did this ridiculous thing that they've boom. They've completely 360 because they got some public exposure and pressure.
Which Republican Will Hold Pennsylvania Senate Seat?
"Look, it's going to be Doctor Oz, or David McCormick. And they're going up against John fetterman. And the conventional wisdom is that either one of these guys can take him. Am I reading that right? I think the conventional wisdom is correct given the political atmospherics and just how competitive it Pennsylvania is in the year 2022, let's say versus the year 2002. Right. So 20 years ago, Pennsylvania was always just competitive enough for Republicans to challenge for it. Let's say in presidential contests. And it did send Republicans to Congress as a part of their Senate delegation. But the state really has become super competitive and the atmosphere for Democrats is just as bad as an atmosphere I've seen for a political party. I guess it's 2018 when it was that almost that bad. Well, look, but that's why I think Oz or McCormick is very likely to win the general election. Well,

Proving the Link Between Egypt and the Hebrew People
"Back. I'm talking to doctor Douglas, petrovic, who is putting forward a thesis with a lot of evidence that, in fact, the world's oldest alphabet is Hebrew or what eventually became the Hebrew alphabet going back so far that it's almost incomprehensible to the 19th century BC. If you know anything about the evolution of language and alphabet, and we're going to get into that, it's gigantic news. And it proves the link between Egypt and the Hebrew people. So a lot of what you've discovered doctor petrovic, and by the way, thank you for being with us today. The reason it's so controversial is because it supports the Bible as history and there are a lot of people deeply invested in that not being right. And so you become their enemy and what you're putting out there. They want to debunk it. When did you in the course of your studies begin to see that you had something here that you could make this case? It goes back to 2012 and 2013. It all started when I was studying for my comprehensive exams for my PhD at the university of Toronto, which by the way, the major of my program was serial Palestinian archeology and the first minor was Egyptian language ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic language. And then the second miners ancient near eastern religions, but all goes back to 2012 when all of a sudden out of nowhere I fell into evidence for Israelites in Egypt at the time of the exodus. I already knew the right time frame for this that it's the middle of the 15th century BC that they exit has happened in 1446 BC. And I knew the right place, which is the site of a virus. And what was discovered there were animal remains consisting of four different animals that you read about in excess 11 and 12, the time of the first Passover, the tenth plague on Egypt, dogs, cattle, sheep, and goats, and most of them were sheep and sheep and goats, and almost all of the sheep and goats died in their first year of age, which is exactly what the Hebrew Bible says was a requirement for the sacrificial animals. So in studying this in falling into this, you know, I consider it kind of like a gold mine that I fell into.
Douglas Petrovich Has Uncovered Fascinating Archeological Connections
"Now the headline here, and I should have started with this. Is that, I mean, this is so fascinating. It's always the more fascinating something is that more difficult it is to sum up. But this has tremendous implications with regard to the historicity of the scriptures. The stories of Joseph. Again, going way back, talking to the 19th century BC. It's amazing. The 19th century BC so far back, the time when Joseph would have lived. But we didn't really know this until fairly recently and you've been at the forefront of showing this. There are a lot of directions to go in, but I think isn't that the most controversial aspect of what you're putting out there that there are people that just don't want to believe that some of what the Bible says is true. It's history and by discovering this language, this alphabet I should say so far back long before we thought there was an alphabet, you make it difficult for those who don't like to believe that the Bible is history. Absolutely Eric and you would not believe the amount of flak that I have received in light of all of this because it is giving credence to the history of the Bible and if you think about it and I don't know, you are academic background, but in most colleges and universities, both across the United States and around the world. Professors have been using their platform to kind of mock the historical view of the Bible. And one of the greatest mockeries that's used is, hey, the Bible says the Israelites were in Egypt for 430 years. Why do we have no proof of that? And for all of this period of modern history with archeology and the study of ancient inscriptions, epigraphy, we have no examples that show us that the Israelites were there. And that then becomes a springboard to creating disbelief within our kids and our
Douglas Petrovich and Eric Discuss the First Ever Alphabet
"The first alphabet in the history of the world is Hebrew. This is the more you learn about this, the more fascinating and strange and amazing it is, he has a new book out, doctor petrovic called origins of the hebrews, new evidence of Israelites in Egypt from Joseph to the exodus, a previous book is called the world's oldest alphabet, Douglas petrovic, welcome to the program. Thank you, Eric. It's great to be with you today. I am really so fascinated by this. How do we start? I mean, if somebody knows nothing about this, and most people really don't think about this kind of thing. If somebody had asked the question ten or 20 years ago of some scholar, hey, what's the first alphabet? What would they have said? Well, they would have said it's clearly a semitic language that's behind it. And so all scholars agree with that. And it's clearly a script that evolved or derived from Egyptian hieroglyphics, so there's clearly a physical visual basis or foundation in hieroglyphics. Everybody would agree on that. The question would just be which is the semitic language behind the world's surface. I've just learned something
2500 Years Ago, Aristotle Articulated What We're Living Through Now
"So Aristotle, 2500 years ago. I think better articulates part of what we are living through right now than even most commentators in the media. So Aristotle talked about things that do not change. So knowledge of things that do not change is wisdom. There's practical knowledge, and then there's knowledge that is eternal. That is rooted in the natural law. That is one of the reasons why when Aristotle was rediscovered and kind of restudied, if you will, by Thomas Aquinas and many others, there was kind of this constant through line of the classics to the Bible to practical judgment or prudence today. So Aristotle writes in the politics. He says, tyrants aim to break the spirit of their subjects. They know that a poor spirited man will never plot against anybody. A tyrant second aim is to breed mutual distrust. This is 2500 years ago. He was writing. Tyranny is never overthrown until people can begin to trust one another. And that is a reason why tyrants are always at war with the good. Tyrants feel that good men are dangerous to their authority. Not only because they think it shamed to be governed, despotically, but also because of their loyalty to themselves and to others and because of their refusal to betray one another or anybody else. The final aim of a tyrant is to make sure that subjects are incapable of action. Nobody attempts the impossible, therefore no one will attempt to overthrow the tyrant or the tyranny when all are incapable of action. So let's just kind of summarize some of that as we talk about the World Economic Forum and the world health assembly and Joe Biden, who is a tyrant. That's kind of just recap that first they want to break your will. The second is, they want to breed mutual distrust. And then the third is that they want to make you incapable of action.
Dr. Naomi Wolf Outlines the Unconstitutional WHO Treaty
"This is a guest I've wanted to have on for quite some time. Someone who has just been one of the most articulate and courageous communicators during all of this nonsense that we lived through at the last couple of years, as she is the author of an upcoming book, the bodies of others. The new authoritarians COVID-19 and the war against the human. It comes out in just about a week, and I want to ask her about all sorts of different things. It is the wonderful doctor Naomi wolf, doctor. Welcome to the program. Thank you so much for having me. Thank you. So I want to just dive right into it. Something's happening rather consequential in Geneva in the coming days. Tell us about what's happening with the World Health Organization world health assembly. Is this an attempt to try to usurp our sovereignty? All the warnings you just heard are absolutely correct. They're not exaggerated. And we need to be extremely, extremely worried. No alarm is too great for what we're facing. She was incredibly out of summary of the danger, but basically I've got a chapter in the bodies of others explaining that the nation state is the one thing, a nation state with secure borders, you know, I'm pro league of immigration. I'm the daughter of immigrants, but the globalists absolutely love dissolving national borders and they love weakening people's allegiance to their local or national identity national language, national culture, erasing national histories. And the reason they love it is just what we're seeing with the World Economic Forum. It makes people weaker at the grassroots level and empowers these oligarchs. And so it's a 1000% correct that if the U.S. becomes a signatory to the World Economic Forum proposal treaty, we can expect to see mercenaries on our shores or we can expect to see as miss bachman pointed out U.S. Military doing the bidding of the

"last year" Discussed on The Doug Collins Podcast
"Again, the court is now and in an interesting determination. There are many who feel that roe V wade was one of the worst decided cases in the annals of supreme courts up with plessy and dred Scott and just so many other cases that were wrongly decided by a court. And it is needed to be changed. The Dobbs case makes this premise a very real because the Mississippi case with the exception of a life of mother set this at 15 weeks. It said it below the threshold of what is determined the courts abuses viability. But then the question became, is it an undue burden if you said it at 15 weeks? Now there are many who, you know, frankly for the prolonged community are not crazy about 15 weeks, it allows 15 weeks in which states could allow abortions. But if they kept under the rogue concept, I think what is more being pushed here and what Stewart the attorney general from Mississippi is saying is now it is time just to start over. It is time to get the courts out of this decision making process. It is the time to get the courts out of this process. And send it back to the states in which you will then have the discussion of elected officials representing people that they see and know every day to decide is this where we want our state to be. Do we want our state to be a part of allowing abortion? Do we want to be a part of it and how much do we want to allow how far do we want to allow it? You know, even going back into you want to allow just as Colorado and the District of Columbia and some recently have passed laws that say that abortion is legal up until the before birth. I mean, I'm not sure very many people really would believe that it's okay to kill a full term child in the womb at 38, 39, 40 weeks. It's hard for me to believe that. But yet you do have those on the other side that says, well, it's not a matter of viability not a matter of choice. It is a matter of the woman having this right founded in row of this Phnom part of these rise a shadow rise to come from other rise and form this ride of privacy. The burden of a pregnancy, Amy, just the same, you call me Barrett, the case is done. Do not de proliferation of adoptions and adoption option, relieve the burden of carrying our caring for and carrying a child. Again, these are the questions that we're asking this Dobbs case. It makes it very interesting. Now, if you look at it, what's going to happen? I don't know. I'm not here to say that I believe that this court, even on a 5 four basis or a 6 three basis is going to come back and say, we are determining that after hearing these arguments, that rho is no longer valid law that we are overturning row we're sending this back to the states and allowing the states to determine how they want to handle this. Or will they say, take a more moderated approach and say, we agree with Mississippi. This is not an undue burden. We agree up until this point and sort of, in many ways, taking the argument that justice Roberts and many others have said that this trimester exclusion was something that was a fiction made up and randomly gave is this something that will now be thrown out, but then they're replacing it with another random number, random weeks 15 that would then determine when abortion could be illegal in winter could not be legal. I'm beginning to believe if you read the transcript that Roberts is struggling mightily with a, what he would consider, I believe a false construct of 15 weeks. You know, the reason why 15 weeks was used, the reason why any of these time frames, even some of the terms of viability. I think so when he's struggling with that, we'll see how that comes out in his voting in this case. I lay all of this out because I want you to understand what's at stake here as you go forward. Now there's been many on the liberal commentator side that say that if roe is overturned, they use the old quote from justice Scalia that this is not the end of it, so to speak. If they overturn roe, then you're going to have cases brought on everything from interracial marriage to same sex marriage to others. I think Stewart answered that question pretty succinctly when he said we're not dealing in life in death here. This is not, this is daily in life and death in the life and death of that child in the womb. I think you'll see that that will not be the case. And especially in like same sex marriage and others, there's other legal tied to very legal precedents of legal protection that have opened those gates up that would not be tied to this ride of privacy or this others that although used in those cases were not the predominant.
"last year" Discussed on The Doug Collins Podcast
"As we go. Now, over the years, courts have and states have been pushing this envelope. And it's undue burden test, and it's been building. Up over the years in the spring court, we're seeing it more and more over the past 20 years. And during that time, you have seen the activism rise more and more into which there was not state solutions because they felt bound by roe V wade. They had to go through the court route. So you have the same prolong community for a number of years been looking for opportunities to challenge roe V wade. You saw that, you know, coming through the 90s with Casey. In those cases, it came forward. And then continuing on to make sure that the Supreme Court so in a presidential election, again, abortion conservatives would always come up and because the appointments of the Supreme Court to the Supreme Court by the president. The court now sits at 6 to three on the conservative scale with most will tell you that there are 5 votes now for if not overturning row all the way, at least curtailing it a great deal. And possibly as many as 6. Now, the reason I say 6 is they're using Roberts is the up and download here Roberts in these questioning recently in the case. Question the trimester system. I think he, if you look at his years prudence, it would be very hard for him to do a construct that is not grounded in some ways that he feels in law. This is the problem with Rowe. Rowe was not constructed out of the constitutional enumerated ride. It was constructed out of what was what we understood from Douglas justice Douglas as this Phnom or the shadow. In other words, that they existed in the edges of these known rights of speech and assembling in all these things that the other numerated even that we had some justice in the 9th actually talk about. So you're seeing a court now that is sharply divided. Ginsburg no longer on the court again Ginsburg had a great deal to do with the original cases that led up to the roe V case. Very strong advocate of the pro choice side is no longer on the court. You now have a 6 three court 5 of which pretty much assumed that you can sort of tell it in their questioning. Will at minimum vote to restrict a rollback row in many ways. There is a strong determination now that you could be seeing this Dobbs case actually roll it back completely because of the aspect dealing in viability and dealing and the, just this artificial construct of the trimester system that was put in and understood under this undue burden. Now, what the first, what are we talking about here? What is the dobb's case and why is it important? The Dobbs case is out of Mississippi and where they banned abortions after 15 weeks. And this was the determination of drawing the state legislature passed this meal. They have one abortion clinic in Mississippi. This was the Jackson health case. And so this in essence banned most abortions in the state after 15 weeks. This way outside of the viability Sanders that were set up, the undue burden standards. This is one that directly on his face attacks roe V wade. It's the interesting that the Mississippi case is the one being heard. There are other cases that you may have heard of in the last little bit out of Texas and other states that basically did a complete man on abortion or a much shorter time frame. 6 weeks, fetal pain, those kind of bills that were not taken up, the Mississippi case produced the hardest case, I think for the pro choice community to have to deal with and presents a case in which the conservatives could either take what happened in Mississippi, bring it back to that standard and still leave parts of roe V wade intact, but say that after certain amount of time you can restrict abortion. Interesting quote came out of the Dobbs oral arguments justice Roberts, who is again conservative, but they're not sure that if he's willing to go against precedent of roe enough to overturn it, made the case. He basically had a question, he said, is it 15 weeks enough? Don't you, after 15 weeks, is that not enough to decide if you want a child or not? Now, approach was argument is saying that's not the determination of a government or a justice. That is the determination of a female who is having this child. Again, a lot of angst back and forth in this case. So you have to understand it that it is one now that the very viability of roe, the very viability of the press and cases after that. From a pro choice perspective, very much in jeopardy from us on a prologue perspective for the first time, it is a chance as Scott Stewart, who's the attorney general in Mississippi, argued, he said that this riot was not grounded in the context of the text of the constitution, but it was an abstract concept. It was something that he was acknowledging the arguments that have been made by both liberal professors and conservatives that the row case was basically a made up case. It was a case made up on abstract principles that were not directly tied to the text and the language of the constitution and the constitutional rights there of. This is where he also brings it back says, let's take this back to where it should be..
"last year" Discussed on The Doug Collins Podcast
"Roe V wade? Here's also a start of the I need to tell you. If you listened many times to the conversations that go on around the court's picks and the president's picks on the court over the last 50 years, they have determined that roe V wade is the ultimate litmus test. It was not as bad necessarily in the 80s and 90s. It was still there, but it has grown tremendously in the last 25 years. Here's the interesting fact for you. The court takes up maybe, maybe Supreme Court. One to two cases every ten years in abortion. Maybe. It's so important, however, that people put all of their determination on who should be a Supreme Court Justice on how they actually interpret roe V wade and would they be willing to overturn it. I think in many ways, this has become a disservice to the court. I think it is something with the court that deals with all areas of our life, not just this one, which is so vitally important, which I believe they got wrong to start with, and I'm freely cite that in this podcast. I think when you deal with it, it is made the court impose its judicial activist will own a nation that was already dealing with this in the political realm. If you take this out away from the people, if you take this away and say that the court is going to imply this, especially in this instance, when you were actually moving forward, this is what is called. Now you can agree or disagree, but you can't disagree with the facts. This states and we name them all from 1967 home through 1970 other for continuing it, even up until the passage of the court decision roe V wade were adding to abortion rights in this country. Much of the Sagan of those in the pro life movement at the time, which was when nacy and which were really nonexistent because he'd never been a need to at this point, but as they were making progress in legislatures, they chose to take it and hopper speed it up into the courts, courts made it applicable to the country. Then you have the problem in which we face today in which everything surrounding the United States Supreme Court typically starts and ends with what is the justices view on abortion. And this is really where we come. Now, since roe V wade, there was a couple of cases that began to roll back some of roe V wade strengthen it in some ways also take away from it. Casey Planned Parenthood case, this was instituted what will be known as the undue burden test. And that is, if a state could number one state could begin to put restrictions on the access to abortions, whether that be through access to clinics, access to hospitals, access to ultrasounds. I mean, you start building on this progression, parental consent, all of this that would be weighed into this. The question was after Casey, Casey uphill the tenants of roe V wade, but then said that if anything was to affect any of these parts in any of this time of the pregnancy, so to speak, the viability issued these other things that it hadn't made the undue undue burden test. Was it an undue burden on the person, the female to enact her right to terminate a pregnancy? Now, over time, you also had court cases that ruled that the father right or was they had no rise in the choice of abortion and others. Now, before though, I do need to get back a twin decision that also opened this up a great deal on roe V wade with dovey Bolton dough was the same day. It doesn't get the attention that roe does, but it's very important because it defined health of a mother is including all aspects of health psychological mental physical spiritual all aspects. So that basically opens it up for anyone when you say that you can have an abortion based on mental health or anything else, this is where dough comes in and says, look, that's a valid reason to restrict it because that you then run up later in the Casey case, the Casey Planned Parenthood case has to undo burn and how does that affect how someone would get an abortion now when you understand that for those this becomes a semantics exercise on how you actually define life of a mother? Is it health of a mother or life of a mother? Those are two distinctions. Dough made it very clear that health of a mother, it would include anything. Even if they just basically were depressed and wanted to get an abortion, that was a valid grounds of health of a mother. Life of a mother being a different story. So I needed to go back and pick that piece up.

"70. And this is coming in a sense of what we see as the courts agreeing with this, but the state legislature's dealing with it in their own way and their own sites. And I want to emphasize why this is important because it gives you a hint of what could be happening in the future, but also why I believe that the roe V wade decision one of the worst decided constitutional cases that we've ever seen decided both liberals and conservative jurists and scholars have said this forever. Own the roe V case because it actually was a judicial solution to a problem that was beginning to be handled at the state level. And no matter what side you fell on, it was beginning to be addressed at these levels. And the controversy was real. 1971, USB Butch, virtue TCH, actually D.C., Washington D.C. allowed abortions and this was hailed by the courts in that. So you're starting to see the courts actually running on this as well. Now, that brings us to 1973 on the Pinocchio case of the ending case of roe V wade and also dovey Bolton. Now both of these are together, the roe V wade emphasized in what became of the trimester selection of when a state can do anything, you know, the first trimester they can do nothing master, only maternal, if you dealt with internal health, third trimester, they could ban those. But this was the interesting position of roe V wade that built on a previous case. Now, again, liberal activists Proto us pro abortion activists had been fighting in these states, you know, state to state to make it legal or to show it to be legal. And certain stages to get an abortion and he says, we already saw this happening. This was not a new occurrence. It was a discussion, but it was being played out in the proper federalist doctrine if you would of the of our country. And that is each state deciding for themselves what their value of life was and how they determine the def abortion was going to be legal or not legal. But that one going fast enough. So jurists such as John lawyers such as Ruth Bader Ginsburg and many others began to push cases testing the limits of these abortion laws and finding a new and frankly creative doctrine under which to find the basis for approving of abortion in roe V wade was the I guess if you want to say from their perspective of getting judicial activism into this was their crowning achievement. Now, why is this important? I'm a believer that if it had continued through the states that you would have had a patchwork of laws throughout the country that this would be a state issue, this would be an issue that would be very real for those of us on the pro life side, we would want to remove it from any state in which it was for the pro choice. There would be wanting to expand it to wherever they could. And this would be where it would be followed. It would be fought in the elections of the legislatures in these states to taking the feeling of the public in which they represent and implying them into the states of which they govern. By taking this out, it was not going fast enough. And if you read some history about this, you will say that the activists were saying, you know, in essence, this was not going fast enough, we need to challenge this in court and get this tournament as a right for a woman to have the right to an abortion. Now, a case that was the forerunner of roe V wade actually was the one that set the parameters for this right of privacy spoken of in the roe V wade case. Now it's been used in other cases as well. I issue of ride a privacy, but for this one, in particular, it goes on bills on what justice Douglas called and signing the Bill of Rights and the number of bills that's Phnom or shadows is what penumbra is actually in the shadows. In other words, this is the ride, but that shadow of that right gives rise to these other enumerated rights that would give rise to a what would be known as a right of privacy. And it would be included to include a woman's right to choose to have an abortion. And this is how the whole case developed. So it's really understanding why you need to understand that a case out of Connecticut, the griswold case was about contraception. Now think about this for a second. How they were going to enforce this case was always one that was always, you know, presented some interesting arguments to those of us in law school, but griswold case was about contraception and the states banning of the use of contraception. Out of that case, they developed the right of privacy that you would have in your home to use contraception and this is where this whole case sprung from. Out of this became the writer privacy out of that became then the decision in roe V wade, which using the rider privacy to have a right that that rod a prophecy extended to health decisions that rotten to privacy extended them to a woman being able to choose to terminate a pregnancy. Now, the reason this is important and the reason this was such a decision that his calls every court justice of the Supreme Court now in their confirmation hearings to have to answer their question on their determination of roe V wade will they uphold it? Will they not uphold it and we've seen that a lot here in the recent weeks and months onto the end of the Trump administration and under the Biden administration and under the Obama administration, I mean, it has become the most dominant question many times in these judicial confirmation hearings is the determination of wild there. What is your judicial philosophy in concerning.

"Time. I mean, for when you look at your excited about what God, you believe God had given you as your first child. And we were struggling with this and didn't know what was happening, but we did know one thing that no matter what it was, this was God's plan and we were going to have a very special child. During this time, Lisa went back to school, she was teaching school in one of the teachers who was teaching with her, came up and was, you know, in her best to try and comfortly, I guess, was saying that, you know, Lisa, you got choices to make. And of course, we were in the process. They end up choosing new doctors, a new hospital to have Jordan because we had to be closer to a pediatric ICU unit, and so we were running a lot of hidden Jordans and laser said yes. We're making these decisions and we got to go down to Atlanta and find out she's a no, no, no. She said, you got choices, but you don't have to do this. And then finally, it clicked in with what Lisa was saying. To Lisa what she was saying, and that was, is you don't have to go through with this pregnancy. You don't have to have your child. And Lisa looked at her and said, you're talking about my child. We're going to have our child. And about 6 weeks later, Jordan was born. She had a lot of issues. The first few years, but God saves you through it. Life is precious. It was his to give. It was not for us to take. And I could not imagine a moment without Jordan in our life. Has it been easy? No, is it easy for her? No, does it break my heart to watch some of the things in life that she has to go through that's not normal. Yes. But also the gift of life that God gives is so important. So from a perspective that is personal and I share this, this is why abortion has become such the flashpoint that it is. It's something that's not policy wise. There's something that is very visual on how you look at life. So as we start this conversation about abortion, I bring this up because this is going to become a very much of an election year issue. I'm predicting it now. It's been very quiet. You don't hear a lot of people talking about it, but I wanted to hear on the podcast. I wanted to get ahead of this a little bit because when this decision is dropped in the end of June, it's going to cause a lot of stir on both sides of this debate, whether you're pro abortion or your pro life, this is, this is going to cause a lot of start depending on how they come out with this. So in this, it's also going to end is just like everything else, just like inflation, just like war, just like the things that we talk about the other day. And the election episode, this is going to affect how campaigns operate. This is going to affect how campaigns deal with turnout on the right and on the left and it could be a determinant factor in some of these closer races. So I wanted to give you just sort of a history. Many of you know abortion from seeing it on TV. You hear about it. You've talked about it. If you go to church, you've heard about it, if you're pro choice, you want to keep that, the woman's right to choose, the whole argument. But let's just sort of go backwards. We didn't always have a constitutional right as if you would through the roe V wade decision. Right to abortion. And as we look at this, there's nothing more polarizing than abortion. And the interesting part about the Dodd K Dobbs case here is that the Dobbs case is going to possibly put it back to where it was almost 50 years ago. Plus and I think that's going to be an interesting for federalism in this country. You may say, well, what does that mean? If they overturn roe, then there's no abortions, no. That's not true. In fact, it's simply sends it back to the states. And that's where the states were working in many states, some were approving it some were not, and that was sort of the basis of where you were looking. So historically, let's look at this. In the 1967, the first night was Colorado to actually approve or liberalize this abortion laws and it would approve abortion for physical disabilities of the child and the mother right incest in these things. California, North Carolina, Oregon followed suit very quickly. This in 1967. So you can see that from what was a man in no abortions in the United States being performed. You're starting to see the states individually start taking on this issue and then liberal would be known back then as liberalizing their abortion laws to allow for abortion. Now, in 1970, New York abortion on demand up until 24 weeks became signed into law, Rockefeller signed this into law. Alaska, Hawaii, Washington state, followed suit. So as you can see here, we're building up 67,.

This will be an opportunity for all of us. One of the issues, and this one, this episode is going to be very personal. And I'm going to share this as we get started. This episode is I spoke of the other day is we were talking about the elections. And one of the things that I said was a wildcard in the elections is a court case that just was set up last fall. It came out and it was argued in November as Dobbs V Jackson. This is out of Mississippi. This is the abortion case. This is the test if you would of roe V wade. This is deciding, will there still be the setup from a federal level of over reach of roe V wade and a legalized abortion and the things that have been litigated for almost 50 years now is coming to a hit. And it's interesting that this is going to be part of this election cycle. It's been something that's been looked at by the pro life community for years. Now we're here. This is the challenge, and it's going to be interesting to see and we're going to talk about that Dobbs case here a little more in day up here in just a little bit. But for me, I want to just lay off and we'll start this with a story and many of you know my family and I've told this story many times before Jordan is our least and I's daughter. She's 30 years old. She is a wonderful lady. I wish I had the half of the patients and love and kindness that she has. But Jordan has spina bifida. Jordan is handicapped. She's paralyzed from the waist now. And she has been since birth. When lace and I first found out we were going to be parents 30 years ago this year, April 1st is a matter of fact, is when Jordan's birthday is. We found out in February on a regular routine ultrasound. I had rushed back for it because I had missed some of the ultrasounds. Now, for those of you who are parenting now or your grandparents and you're seeing your kids start to have babies ultrasounds of changed and there's so much better and back then they were doing ultrasounds and to just to test my lab, but they put one off and I was going to get to come back and see it. And I remember rushing back and getting back to the doctor's office, they're doing the ultrasound, the nurse leaves the room, says she needs just wants to go see the doctor. And I remember Lisa looking at me and tears in her eyes and says something's wrong. And I said, no, it's not anything wrong. I mean, I'm a guy and he's like, everything's gonna be fine. It's our first child, everything's going well. And come back in to the doctor came back in and kept looking, kept looking and pointing to this little black and white grainy screen and said, we have a problem and he used these fancy words. Myelomeningocele and in other words to say that Jordan had spine a bifida. In other words, she had an open spine as the way that the doctors portray it. We didn't know what that meant. I mean, this is before the Internet that we had access to and we went to the library. We saw these horrific pictures. It was a really troubling time..

They've rebuilt this roster. I happen to believe they are a well, not a contender, a better team than what they do. Our last year. They were a better than 500 team, which is what they were last season. Do you agree with that? Or do you think that they are? I agree with the ground. I agree with that, especially when you start thinking about their bench right now, I think that is is to me is going to be the key last year when you had, you look, start looking at your bitch. And you know, you said, we're going to probably get the schruder in a minute. This is a player Young. They look at the other pieces that they're trying to add in with done and guys like that.

"They brought a challenge to that which is still working. Its way through the courts. But as i say our state supreme court which has the final word on this has upheld refunds and and we believe With very great deal confidence that the insurance companies will not be allowed to retain five point billion dollars in overcharges minus of course whatever. They have paid back already. Which is you mentioned earlier carmen. It's kind of hard to figure out what they've repay. But we know that they have refunded only a small portion of the five point. Five billion dollars. I mean in sort of rough estimate of what they always right now for twenty twenty alone. It'd be about three point six billion and so the the the point here is what will the insurance commission do it. He's asked as you said is asked them nicely politely. Four times the most recently telling them all to repay everything by april of twenty twenty one. And they haven't done that. And so the it's it's going to be the commissioners move now. He has a not just a not just in a has a responsibility to the to the public and it's a legal responsibility duty to to go back and make sure there's refunds are paid to every motorist who was overcharged in twenty twenty twenty twenty one and so the question will be Because the ball is really in his court now Will he do that. And i think you from from everything you can see from the press releases. It looks to me like he wants to get people's money back but he's e can't ask nicely anymore now him and his agency. The staff of the department of insurance has to come up with a way to give people their money. Get people their money back well. And i think the evidence from a lay person's perspective of that. The commissioner has not only the authority but the responsibility to order these refunds comes from the very fact that the auto insurance companies have even refunded as much as they have already in california. Which if we're being Looking at this from a ten thousand foot perspective insurance companies in california have returned a lot more in california than they have another states. And i think that is the evidence from. The insurance industry's point of view. That oh the commissioner can come back it can come in and order to refund this money. Let's trickle out some refunds in the hopes that he doesn't make us open the books and return the whole shebang. That's a really good point. Carbon exactly that. The law in california is so strong that the company is voluntarily gave back around a one point nine billion. No doubt as you say hoping that that he will leave them alone on the rest of the three point six billion that they didn't get back and i don't think he will and like i said he has a legal obligation..

The odds on that soil having picked up enough fungal disease or other trauma. are pretty small in that one year now The briesen those baskets grew well last year because they were not full of garden soil. They were full of potting soil. Yeah all kinds of organic matter plus fillers and so on the odds are because there is degeneration. Well bacteria and fungi. Eat that stuff so to speak. There will be a matter of reason to add new potting soil not garden soil. I would think that for one year carryover. Yes then if you're gambler enough in terms of most plans you probably use them for several years in a row so there's no reason to throw him out the basket itself would be good if you want to. I'd say go for it. There is risk. But i know what they cost. I know i. I know that i have an excess other right now because i feel him the second year and then i keep them because i might need them again. Well my might need pile is way too big. Do you add a little at a little fresh with mixed up meals mark and i meant to to indicate that by some potting soil and add that to the old material. So you're going to use a hand trolley or what have you to go down in and and Loosen it up pretty much thoroughly. then you'll find. There is a degeneration in the a month. Now you will fluff it up a little bit but would still add to. I'm going to call it basket height of of totalmente material. The old and the new blended together. So that when you plant and you start to water that having been fluffed up we'll settle so that you're gonna have an inch well nearly an inch at the top later on..

"That's a symbol line. It's three words. There's no visualization no real world life behind them see the difference. The same works in our professional lives as business owners employees and self employed hopefuls. Now while you have that clean slate not only for today and tomorrow but for an entire new year. it's important to take the time. Now to be introspective.

"last year" Discussed on Caffeinate & Conquer: The Podcast
"Twenty twenty one and despite predictions from such reputable sources as the jetsons were still here on earth. Living our lives without robotic maids or flying cars. Although i will say the roomba has definitely been a giant step in the right direction. Instead of excitement and shenanigans that usually accompany the start of a new year. We've all been stuck at home. Inundated with the countless seemingly never ending memes and gifts flooding our facebook walls on instagram streams. Since that's how we communicate now new year new you boo welcomed level. Thirteen of jumanji. Fuck off twenty. Twenty bring it on twenty twenty one. I want to refund. The images may differ slightly. But they've all got the same route message. Hey sorry you're last year with shit but as soon as the clock struck midnight and the calendar page flipped. Everything is better now. I'll apologize in advance for bursting your bubble and raining on your parade. But that's not how this works. Yes it's a new year. It's twenty twenty one. A new set of twelve months which for most of us restarts the cycle of seasons tax records and grand workout.
"last year" Discussed on The MMQB NFL Podcast
"Coach told me not too long ago Gary that the worst thing that could ever happen for a backup quarterback is you have to play because then as Gary Kubiak say when they ask Kubiak. Does it bother you that you'd never played behind elway? He's still no because then they would have found. I couldn't play and I wouldn't get to be there at all anymore. So not there are not thirty. Two quality backups in the NFL there might not even be eight. Quality backups in the. Nfl jets found that out the hard way last year. At least with flacco you can still run. Probably your whole offense all right and the other one. We got Okay there's a proposed rule. It's sort of come up a little bit in the past and now it's being considered basically replacing the onside kick teams down the option twice a game. Instead of attempting an onside kick to retain possession after scoring drive they would have a fourth and fifteen situation at their own. Twenty five if they don't get the fifteen yards than the opponent would take over at the the spot of the spot of the ball their fourth and fifteen I look I think it makes a ton of sense we saw with the new onside kick rules which were put in for player safety concerns. They have made onside kick so difficult to recover. That it's sort of you know it. It's just it's it's not an interesting play anymore. It's probably not a play. That's really worth until absolute desperation at that point so I'm looking here Sixteen point three percent last season but that was a big uptick. It was ten point five percent since the new rules in in twenty eighteen so This four Hundred Fifteen. We had teams on third and fifteen and four thousand fifteen. This is according to profootballtalk were successful. Fifteen point nine percent of the time last season. So you're looking at a sixteen percent play. Obviously some teams are going to convert that more often because their quarterbacks in their often are better but overall Andy fire off your take take is I love the idea and regardless of what the stats for onsite. Kip recovery would be. I think they ought to implement this. And my reason for the take is kickers are getting paid. The good ones are getting paid three baby. Four billion a year Justin Tucker's the best. He gets paid five million a year. And Your quarterbacks are making twenty five to thirty million a year so those fourth and fifteen plays a lasagna kick plays those are coming at critical junctures in the game. If you're a football team who do you want to be relying on that instant it's It's really it's a total crapshoot play. It's not I don't WanNa say it's not a football player doesn't involve about the tightening your sidekick sorry. Yeah it's it's just you know it's it's a dart throw it you plan for it to an extent but yeah it doesn't really. Yeah no I don't. I don't like the balance of the ball. You know bound lucky. I don't like any of that stuff. I want the people who who out scheme the other people in the players who out and the other players. That's who I want winning the Games so I I don't like it when this stuff comes down to kickers field goals. I understand. That's fine. That's a field position thing. And you need your kicker and if I get that extra points I told her years ago. Get rid of them. Made touchdowns automatically seven. You can go for eight if you want. If you don't get it. Then the touchdowns were six. I think kickers if you can replace kickers with quarterbacks and the plays are fourth down or plays for points that's to me is an absolute no brainer in a league. That's built around the quarterback yet and look when they pushed the extra point back. It was supposed to be this whole lag. It's GonNa make the extra point interesting. Nope and there are more. There are more missed extra points. But it's still not interesting. Yeah and it's all frustrating. Then because a touchdown needs to be worth more than two field goals otherwise to some degree. You're incentivizing field goals. So it's I don't find any of those extra point plays interesting in the least bit less. They get return like a blocked. I guess what an interception return can be two points for the defense now on a two point but I do like that. That's the one spot college. Football was better than the NFL. A lot of years. But let Gary. And I'll tell you this I. I've admitted to coach just like I admit to our listeners. Into YOU I. I don't follow special teams because they don't respected human. Those sounds like I don't. I'm sure right here. I just not time to follow it and keep up with all the offense and defense. There's just not time. And the head coaches. I told that I have had some some are big name had coaches that have said yeah. I'm the same way I don't i. Don't follow special team down aware of it. I know about it but I just want our guys to if we can break even on special teams. I'm all for that. There are some that was see. Well Bill Belichick attitudes very different. It'll how's that gone for form. The point is not kickers are not quarterbacks over tickers. That's the broad point and offense over special teams defense over special teams. I like it. I like that you arrived at a campaign slogan to yet Well if you don't get the second temple the kickers comma. No I mean quarterbacks kickers. That's not a great bumper sticker. But if we can get it down to just quarterbacks over kickers that could that could work yeah there. We go Coup singlehandedly. Sort of skewed. Those onside kick numbers last year. Too and I. I don't know if you would look the Falcons and say boy. They got a real weapon their way coup with his onside kicks what a what a what a smart addition to the roster that they made halfway through the season. But Yeah it's look to me. It's not only all the stuff we just said. But also the whole point of changing the onside kick was for player safety and you improve player safety even more if you go to the fourth and fifteen place so why why not do it. I wouldn't mind if they did away with kickoffs over all and came up with some way to to do this. Whether you you know basically you have an option to punt or go for it Coming off a scoring drive. So yeah all right Andy. That's GonNa do it for now. We will have the mail bag next week if indeed. Andy is our special guests. Will you have to tune in and see who it is might just be?
