Bill O'Reilly Describes the Radical Left's War on American History
"It seems that the American people remain in a place where they want you could call it common sense, but they just want real results for themselves and it's been an obviously very turbulent and chaotic last couple of years. There's also this massive war on American history, which I do want to get your thoughts on. You wrote a phenomenal book killing Lincoln, killing Patton, the whole series is incredible. What is your personal opinion or your analysis of when you start to see public high schools in San Francisco renaming schools that have Abraham Lincoln on it? Where do you rank the kind of deletion of American history on the hierarchy of things we should be concerned about? So what happened was this once the progressive left, the far left elements who want to destroy the fabric of traditional America. Once they realized that the corporate media was going to enable them. And that became clear after the George Floyd situation. So once the progressive left said, we can take this to the limit to quote the eagles. And nobody's going to criticize us in the mainstream media with the exception of Fox and a few of the conservative outlets, talk radio. So we can run wild. So what we're going to do is we're going to brand all the founding fathers, all of the Titans of American history as racist, who do Abraham Lincoln. They're all races white supremacists and they exploited people of color and that's what America is built upon. I'm not built upon freedom, not built upon pursuit of happiness. It's built upon racism.
The Case Against Cancelling Lincoln With Brian Kilmeade
"Stuff. So I want to start with your book, Brian, because your books are always so historically compelling and important. And I have a real soft spot for Frederick Douglass. I think he's such an important American figure that people don't know about. The book is the president and the freedom fighter, Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass and their battle to save America's soul, tell us about the book and then tell us about the interesting relationship between Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass. Hey, you know, I've had a chance to talk to your group too, and they're most intriguing people around. It gives you great hope for the next generation. But what I think this is, is fortunate is the timing. I didn't do it for this reason, but it was one of the reasons why there was so much interest in the book in that we're all talking about race again. We're talking about history again. We're talking about 1619 project again. We're also talking about CRT. All right, we don't talk about that we're looking you and I are trying to look to whitewash history. Don't say that fox looking to say, don't talk about slavery. I'm telling you right now. You can not talk about Frederick Douglas and not talk about slavery. He was born as slave. And do we soft better? No, it's in his biography. He wrote it 7 years after escaping freedom. He said, if you just busy, I could speak well and he had a great vocabulary. People started doubting that he was actually a slave he took his shirt off. Look at my back. Got whipped up beat, never knew his birthday, never knew his parents, but still there was a thirst to learn. So again, education is in the news. Frederick Douglass thirsting for it. Lincoln, but his dad would yell at him. What are you learning for? That's not going to help you work the field. This guy had a thirst to learn one year formal education. What are we talking about? This guy studied the founding fathers on his own. I did Frederick Douglass. And the more that they learned, the more they wanted to learn and just think about this. We're learning in school that America is inherently erased this country when these two people are in a very rough and rugged America without any social safety net without any, I don't know social infrastructure to bail them out. And they couldn't wait to make our country better. They weren't judging our country. They were involved in our country. And I think that's what the big message is.

In 1862, Abraham Lincoln Met With Black Leaders on the Idea of Their Own Country
"So Liberia was an attempt to do what Malcolm X later wanted to do. But in the 1850s, a group of blacks went to Abraham Lincoln and Abraham Lincoln was like, look, if you guys want your own country, we can arrange that. If you black leaders want your own country, we can help you with that. And they deliberated amongst themselves. And of course, deliberation comes before a decision according to Aristotle, deliberation is one of the highest forms and contemplation. I'm sorry. Deliberation leads to contemplation which locally will lead the truth. And they came back to Abraham Lincoln, what they said? They said, this is our home. This happened on August 14th, 1862, Abraham Lincoln did something unprecedented. He met with black leaders all free black clergymen. And he said, we're happy to support a new black country. They were even talking about South Africa, South America, I'm sorry. And Lincoln mentioned Liberia because this was a suggestion before. Now, this movement didn't really gain much traction until Malcolm X resurrected this idea before his assassination. Where Malcolm X basically said that blacks can never be free in this country. We have to go back. And you could say a lot about Malcolm X, that actually is the logical conclusion. That is the logical answer if you think America systemically racist. Leave. Now, I don't think America systemically racist, so I'm not encouraging people to leave. But if you believe that like tah anisi Coates does, then why are you still
Jonah Goldberg and Stephen Hayes Resign From Fox News
"Know there's a conservative crack up going on inside the beltway as Jonah Goldberg and Stephen Hayes have departed from Fox News. There's a story at the American spectator about addition by subtraction at Fox News with which I disagree. Molly Hemingway quotes from it approvingly. Molly is a good friend as his mark. Byron York works with both Jonah and Steven Jonah longtime friend of the show, Stephen a's used to be. He drops a nuclear bomb on my head a couple of years ago that I didn't see coming, but I don't know what that's all about. Byron York works with everybody and apparently amicably like I try to do as I quote tamale Lincoln's first inaugural. We are not enemies. We must not be enemies, but friends, Byron, what is going on? Well, good morning you. My official position in all of this is that I wish everyone well. Yeah, you and I pretty much adopt the same view on beltway, penda tree. Yeah, well, what can I say? You're a Fox News contributor. Do you have a conflict? I don't want to put you in a bad spot. No, I am a Fox News contributor. I have been since 2006. And I've been happy to be Fox News. So I think that that's my story right there. And by the way, I am an NBC News contributor though I've been exiled and they're about to breach my deal. I don't know why, but I've been exiled. So who knows what's going on inside of network executives trying to figure out their audiences? I think this all comes down to trying to find your audience and keep them happy. Well, I mean, there's always been this a lot of commentary about thoughts about having almost being like the old broadcast entertainment networks. In the sense that they had the news division and then they had entertainment programming. So people said, well, the prime time program on Fox is kind of like the entertainment programming and the special report and approximately Sunday in the whole daytime, really are all about the news division. I think that's unfair because a lot of news is made during prime time on Fox. But clearly it's opinion driven and clearly Steve and Jonah became increasingly uncomfortable with the prime time programming. So I am not sure what to say beyond
Rep. Jim Jordan: Are We the Third Generation to Do Something Big?
"We're in a culture war They run the colleges and universities They run the media They run academia I mean even at the lower levels with the unions et cetera And we're going to have to start figuring out how to get involved in these aspects of our society The parents showed us what the school boards we need to get into the shareholder meetings with these corporations We need to claw back funds from colleges and universities who are producing and giving tenured to true outspoken marxists In other words we have to go on offense don't you think Yes It often speaks deep into my background in the sport of wrestling You stand around the sport of wrestling you don't get your tail kick You have to go on the offense That's the only way you win anything So look I look at history Someone said this Maybe we got this from New York I can't remember but someone said every third generation in this country has done something big Who had the founders who started this experiment freedom we call America Three generations later Lincoln held the country together We got rid of the evil of slavery three generations after that We had the greatest generation beat the evil of Nazi Germany and imperial Japan and now here we are Three generations later and maybe the way the good lord has it it's our turn to do something big and start to stop this march to communism that we see the left putting us

Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass and Their Battle to Save America's Soul With Brian Kilmeade
"I'm talking to Brian kilmeade, author of the president and the freedom fighter, and you just shared something that I really was I never thought about this. So when Lincoln is elected in 1860, a number of states had seceded. First South Carolina 6 more. Okay, and so that's before his inauguration. Before he gets to The White House. Okay, so he's elected. They secede. And then on the assumption he's going to free the slaves and they're not going to deal with it. And he says to get them back into the union, he says you can have your slaves. Thirteenth Amendment could be yours. Okay, so that's the freed slaves. You could be enslaved. And so exactly how did that go? So obviously you said that Frederick Douglass feels betrayed. So it took him some time. I mean, it's kind of funny because you get this with Lincoln. He takes off everybody and at some point, right? And a real conservative today would say suspending habeas corpus. I don't know. You know, it's like it's very interesting that real leadership will do that. It will take off everybody in a way. But so for a while, it seems to me that Frederick Douglass must have not been very pleased with him. Absolutely not. And then when he brings up colonization to solve the problem of the African Americans in America, he say, listen, we made a big mistake. It happened before we were born. So can we send you back? So he invites newspapers, all the press with him, like selective members of the press. And he brings in African American leaders, doesn't invite Douglas. And he says, made a big mistake. Obviously, blacks and whites can't live together, and it's part of this part of the reason this is the reason for the war. So I would like to make you an offer give you plenty of money to go back to Central and South America or wherever you want to go. Douglas, everyone in South America or Africa. Africa, too. He said you could go wherever you wanted to go. We will send you. So we will free you and let you go. Absolutely out of the country. Out of the country. And this bothered Douglas. Beyond by these, I'm an American. I don't want to go anywhere. Where am I born? I'm born here. You got to send me elsewhere. Since when camp blacks and whites get together, remember, and I haven't brought this up yet, but they have another similarity. They both read this book called the Colombian orator. The Columbian order teaches how to speak publicly, teach how to hold yourself and also has great essays from these people like Cicero, Socrates, George Washington, people in our past, and they're thinking big and grandiose. So you wonder why that speech worked at 28? Lincoln's been reading every day since 7. That's right and envisioning himself on that level without the cockiness and ego with the humility to know that it may be what he was capable
Fox's Brian Kilmeade Discusses His New Book 'The President and the Freedom Fighter'
"I'm talking to Brian kill me, you may know him from fox and friends, but he's written a lot of books. This one is called the president and the freedom fighter Abraham Lincoln Frederick Douglass in their battle to save America's soul. America soul could use a little saving right now. But we're not going to talk about that. What made you want to write a book combining these two figures? Well, I was looking for the last time I was here. You kind enough to interview me about Sam Houston, the Alamo Avengers. So I try to find an angle not plowed and the Alamo is, but San jacinto isn't 9 months later he ends up taking him out as San jacinto beating Santa Anna in 17 minutes because Texans know it, but the rest of the world. So I go, what's next? The Mexican war, I didn't think had enough. My opinion, I'm sure there's a lot there with Lee in the quartermaster grant and the fact that these generals fought on the same side and then years later, they'd be trying to kill each other and a lot of them successfully. I said, all right, the Civil War. What could I do that's not plowed ground from Ken burns a series to the remarkable book, David blight wrote about Frederick Douglas Scott? I think the book of the year, 5 years ago. And then what about Lincoln? I literally you and I gave the same situation. We get books about linking to our desks all the time, and they're all great. I'm waiting for nobody who's written been written about more. It's like maybe three people like who've written about Napoleon Jesus, Lincoln. I mean, I don't know how many books have been written about Lincoln. So yeah, what do you do for a fresh angle on the Civil War? So what I wanted to do is also I didn't mind tackling race, but I wanted to do it through quotes, not opinion. And racist never left the news, Black Lives Matter is raging at the time. And then you have you have a situation where as late as Condoleezza and rice Condoleezza Rice on the view, having to defend herself growing up in a Jim Crow south who knew all about racism, but grew up as his conservatives says, don't ever let it be an excuse. So I said, what have I talk about their parallel lives to the degree in which they read a lot of the same books? Did they overcame incredible obstacles? Nothing like Frederick Douglass. I get it. The guy was enslaved until he was in his 20 years old, two tries, got out in the second time within 7 years has a biography. It's a bestseller, and then starts a world tour and becomes famous in Scotland, Ireland, Germany, and England. This guy was a slave ten years before, but decides to come back to America because his 4 million enslaved 350,000 slave owners and he sees potential in this guy Lincoln and the Republican Party that we're finally ready to do
Brian Kilmeade Knew Fox News Was Special 25 Years Ago
"And today I get to talk to the author of a book called the president and the freedom fighter, Abraham Lincoln Frederick Douglass and their battle to save America soul. And the author of the book is someone you may know, named Brian kilmeade, Brian, you look very familiar. Eric, thanks so much for your support over the years. Every time I have a book out, you always say come down to this cathedral. And this place is the nicest studio I've ever seen. Period. Thank you very much. Look, this, I think I told you this. And by the way, people, if you're just tuning in, this guy has been on Fox and Friends for how many years now? 25. Radio show for 13. Well, hold on a second. Did you just say 25? Yeah, I started doing it in junior high. I thought so. Yeah, it was crazy. Playing pop Warner football and they grabbed you. It took me 12 years to be to get to Fox. And then once I got there, I realized how great it was, even though no one had heard of it yet. So when it started, I started filling in as a sports guy, and then it evolved and things started going crazy from the war from the election mess to the war on terror to the Iraq War. First election mess. Failure to a 2000 Chad hanging chads. Yes. So you are the youngest living institution in the country. Seriously, that's amazing 25 years from the beginning. Yeah, I mean, I knew when I walked into that place who was going to be special, they were all about winning. They're all about substance. They're all about getting things done completion oriented. Every time they would be a negative story out, they would put their headline on the wall. I'm like, wow, they're not running for negative stories. They would laugh at being laughed at. These guys, this is like Bill Parcells. And the Giants before they were even 500. Until recently, I'm talking about the build ourselves just 25 years. Good
Where Are All the GOP White Supremacists the Left Keeps Talking About?
"Where are the white supremacists that we keep being told about Jennifer? I wish I was out. I don't know what they are. They're at the Glen young in rally paid for by The Lincoln Project, pedo protected. Oh, hang on. I just connected two things. Isn't that interesting? Lincoln project protects pedophiles like Jack Levi, with 21 young men, children as well who had inappropriate sexual relations with. That's The Lincoln Project white supremacist problem with Rick Wilson and his wife cooler with the south shall rise again written on the cooler with the confederate flag. Oh, and then there's white supremacists like Charlottesville, so I think there's a connection here, isn't there, Jen? Yeah, you're absolutely right. Everything that the left calls us is exactly what they are. We've seen it from conspiracies. We've seen it to what they call the people on the right. It is just them trying to shut people down and to try to deflect from who they really are, and it's disgusting. We have got to do a better job of spreading the message. I know talk radio does it. Thank God for that. But when is the news media going to wake up? When is the left going to stop trying to brand the right just because they can't articulate facts because they don't have any to bring to the

Brian Kilmeade Explains the Relationship Between Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass
"What was the relationship with Lincoln and Douglas was Lincoln intimidated by Douglas Douglas was a powerful figure Was it the reverse I mean what was the dynamic between the two Sadly link you never wrote about it but others said he talked about it Douglas was a overpowering figure in the time wanted an immediate Emancipation proclamation wanted to let blacks fight for their freedom He didn't do it And in the beginning he was he was given and said on his first inaugural hey guys come on back in We lost 7 states We need you back We can compromise what we've slavery for now Whatever you do come on back to wood and Douglas Are you kidding me You want them back This 4 million slaves there's 350,000 slave owners We have to end this now That's what you talked about in the Douglas debates do it But he knew Lincoln that if he did it you have no country you preside over because the north was exactly ready to fight for slavery either but gradually both things happen when they finally meet at The White House He realizes what winning was how sincerely was how deep he was and what a great listener he was And together the brief period of time they rallied with recruitment they rallied on issues getting equal to whites in the war and the respect that they had was enormous And I'll just share with you the last interchange He walks into the inaugural ball after only Yorkshire Greek and looks like she's delicacy of my friend Douglas What did you think of the speech We look back at this mister president Don't worry about me Look at all these people around us There's nobody's opinion that I care more about What did you think of the speech He said mister president a sacred effort And that was their last exchange So tell me how more they came and how important they were I mean to me I read that and I get

'Glenn Youngkin Worshipped at the Altar of Donald Trump'?
"Now let's get the left wing interpretation from the fake news industrial complex, and MSNBC's Nicole Wallace cut to. I watched Glenn youngins interviews on Fox News, and he did nothing that Claire did not mean he worshiped at the altar of Donald Trump on Fox News. He flew an insurrection flag at his rallies. He simply didn't you play dumb about a zoom rally. He did not really put much distance between himself and Donald Trump on the big lie or the deadly insurrection in which police officers were maimed by flagpoles. So I think that the real ominous thing is that critical race theory, which isn't real, turned the suburbs 15 points to the Trump insurrection endorsed Republican. I'm not going to waste time here doing it. But I'd like to read to her from the Virginia Department of Education that quotes critical race there in white must be taught the thing that she says doesn't exist. Jennifer Glenn young can worship the altar of Donald Trump. I mean, are these people smoking crack? Anything he wasn't trumpy enough. That was one of the things that he talked about, but he walked this line of not alienating Trump supporters and bringing in other people. I think in my show, I said, are you the Mitt Romney of Virginia? And he said, well, it's not maga, but it's Virginia, make Virginia great again. Which is, you know, skillful. It was not quite wrong. Fairly skillful. Right. And someone who is not a politician and let me remind Nicole Wallace of a few things that I think people may have forgotten. One of the things is that the person who is currently sitting in the governor's mansion couldn't remember if he was the guy wearing the KKK costume or the guy in blackface. The current lieutenant governor of the state of Virginia was accused of raping some incredibly very credibly accused of raping somebody. The group that was trying to push Terry mcauliffe into this election, The Lincoln Project, pretty rich that they were trying to take aim at critical racer because their record with little boys not so

"Senator I want you to listen to this It's 11 mister producer These is a Montage of Democrats saying we won't force anyone to take COVID vaccine Hat tip gradient cut 11 go We can not require someone to be vaccinated That's just not what we can do Needless to say the right of women to make decisions about their own bodies is not negotiable No definitely not You don't want a mandate and try and force anyone to take a vaccine We've never done that Our interest is very simple from the federal government which is Americans privacy and rights should be protected It is a matter of privacy to know who is or who isn't We don't want to be mandating from the federal government to the general population It would be unenforceable and not appropriate Perhaps the federal government should step in and issue mandates and if not are you putting the needs of unvaccinated people ahead of the needs of that community I think the question here one that's not the role of the federal government No I don't think it should be mandatory I wouldn't demand to be mandatory First we must increase vaccinations among the unvaccinated with new vaccination requirements So what happens senator Lee I mean did the constitution in the underlying statute for osha change three four months ago I guess their own enlightenment came about in this moment when all of a sudden they started treating government as if it were a deity as if it were the entity to which we could look and live It's not that It still doesn't have that power as Abraham Lincoln said if you rename the tail of a dog a leg it's still the dog that just has four legs not 5 And so it doesn't have this power It doesn't have this authority I believe that in time this will be smacked down by the Supreme Court of the United States The question is how much pain and indignity what the American people have to endure in the
Brian Kilmeade Analyzes Frederick Douglas' Journey in 'The President and the Freedom Fighter'
"Now Frederick Douglass tell us a little bit about him He was clearly a brilliant man way ahead of his time Yeah brilliant in every way and determined And here's what I mean back then If you taught a slave to read and write you go to jail They knew If you give African Americans in equal shot on some level they knew there's no difference as we know between races So they said okay we need these guys and they got to work for us and we need these family break up These families is as brutal as you can imagine in the south and the north is only 1% of the African American population there They don't relate to slavery It's not part of their society But in the south it is and they were born into at these generations from Monroe to Jefferson to Washington They didn't invent it was happening on 7 continents All right hold your hold your thought The book is called the president and the freedom fighter Abraham Lincoln Frederick Douglass and the battle to save America's salts Fantastic book as are all of kilmeade's
"lincoln" Discussed on Lincoln Park Church of Christ Sermons
"Our country and learn about all the rising percentages of depression, suicide, sin, crime, volatility in society, towards people who think differently than you, it becomes very clear, very quickly what the world needs and his name is Jesus. But it begins and ends. Not only in the word of God, but it begins and ends with you. Every single one of us hear this morning have a role to play. Every single one of us in this building this morning are integral to the furtherance of the congregation here at Lincoln park, but more than that, the universal kingdom of God. We all have to do our parts. And it starts with stepping out in faith. By sharing the word of God and by living out your faith and doing some of the things that I set forth as an example here this morning. Brothers and sisters as disciples of Christ we must all take the living word of God out into the world because God has said, go. And share. And teach and preach. And so I leave you with this this morning. When's the last time you've went? And you shared and you taught, when's the last Bible study you've had? When's the last time you sat down with the family member or a friend and had a Bible study? I know that most of the time people are going to say no. But that's why living your life as a Christian is so very important. But when's the last time you made an offer, I know many people will say no, but when's the last offer you made? With a family member, a friend or a coworker. I'm not talking about going out and talking to strangers. People you know. Ask yourself that question. Along with the last time I had somebody in my home with the express purpose to build a stronger bond with those individuals. Because brethren, that's where it begins. We are the living representatives of Jesus Christ. And he needs us to go into the world. He's done his part. Now it's time for us to do our part. Are you willing to stand up, share your faith in lip sacrificially for the kingdom of God? If you're hearing this message this morning, brethren, there's a challenge that has been set forth. And I pray to God that each of us accept that challenge. Because our eternal destination hangs in the balance. We will all stand before Christ Jesus. It tells us, and second Corinthians chapter 5 verse ten. And it says we will give an account of our lives. What do you want that account to read? You get to decide what Jesus sees. Brother, sisters, if you hear this morning and you need the prayers of the church, you can come forward this morning. We'll pray for you. It will help you in any way that we can. You may be may have been away from the church for a time. And you wish to be restored because you know you haven't been living for God. We know you haven't been living the Christian lifestyle and you want to make today the day that I start moving forward. You can come forward this morning and do that. We'll pray for you. And you may have not been a child of God. Yeah, you may have not come to Christchurch. You may not have been washed in the blood of the lamb. Well, you have an opportunity to be baptized this morning. For the forgiveness of your sins to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit and God himself will answer to the kingdom as we come in as we stand and sing..
"lincoln" Discussed on Lincoln Park Church of Christ Sermons
"Because the word of God gives direction to our lives and the word of God is that guide that light to our path that gives that makes the crooked past straight. So every one of us has an important role to play in the kingdom of God. For the furtherance of the Lincoln park congregation, but for the furtherance of the kingdom of God. If too many people don't fully understand that you have a role to play, and showing up here on Sunday, really isn't part of that rule. We show up here on Sunday to give thanks for the sacrifice. Do this and remember to me that Jesus made on our behalf. So as Christians, we come together to worship God sing songs appraised to his holy name. To lift him up in prayer. It's a gift thanks to encourage one another. But then we are to leave this building, go into the mission field of the world and do what? Share your faith. Teach and preach and allow your changed life to be what sets the example. Brethren, noticed the first passage description here this morning. As we look at this first pass as a scripture in a first Peter, brother, we need to understand that by living out our faith and by living changed lives, people are going to see that something is different about you. Where does that concept come from in the scriptures? Because the scriptures are what guys are lives. It all begins and ends in scripture. First Peter one, 14 through 16 tells us this. As obedient children do not be conformed to the former lust, which were yours and your ignorance. What does it mean that we're yours and your ignorance? It says you didn't know what you didn't know. You didn't know what righteousness looked like. You didn't really know what sin was because you haven't read the word of gajah. You haven't been directed in holiness. And so Peter tells us that as obedient children, we're not conformed to the world, like we used to be in our ignorance, but like the holy one who called you, be wholly yourselves in all of your behavior. Why? Because I myself am holy. Brothers and sisters, you look at this passage description here this morning. And when you think about it, prolong sent in our lives has a way of defining us. Does it not? If you have consistent prolonged sin over a long period of time, when people see you, what do they usually see? The sin in your lives, they know you're knowing by the sin in your life, but that same concept is true of righteousness. You could change your past doesn't have to define you. It doesn't have to define you, and you can allow a new found righteousness and holy living to be what defines you. But it's gonna take time to change the perception that they have of you from years gone by. That's why Jesus says it's hard for a profit to be a profit in his own hometown. Because many people aren't willing to let go of the past. What they think they know about you. And so brothers and sisters. We know that righteousness has the same effect that prolonged righteousness over a period of time consistent, holy righteous living will then change the perception that people eventually have of you. And when you allow your soul, when you allow your attitude when you allow the sin problem that you have in your life to be brought into subjection to the word of God, a beautiful transformation begins to take place. And it's like a budding flower. That's opening slowly. But as it opens slowly, it gets more and more beautiful every day. And that's what our Christian faith our Christian walk is like. Brothers and sisters, when you allow your life to be washed by the blood of Christ, a marvelous transformation takes place. Why? Because it says at that point, you become a new creation. God says, stop dwelling on the past. Stop dwelling on the sin. Stop allowing people to find who you are based on past actions. You're no longer that person. You buried that person. He's dead in God. And now we understand that when we've been washed in the blood of Christ and we're a new creation, rather and gossip stop dwelling in the past because I remember it no more. He says, why are you still dwelling on that garbage? It's like it never happened. But we have to allow that concept to sink in. It stopped dwelling on what used to define us. A fees chapter one number 7 tells us, in Jesus, listen to this, and Jesus, we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace. Brothers and sisters, we need to be a people that immerse ourselves in the word of God. Why? Because we're now a new creation, there has been forgiven by the rich, graces of God, and now you look at the next passage description. And I think of what young what Paul told young Timothy who was an evangelist. And this is this concept in this thought process is for all Christians that we are to be diligent to present ourselves. What? As a proof to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, who accurately handles the word of God. Brothers and sisters. By doing so, we could teach others. We could go and share our faith and teach others about the love and the grace of Jesus Christ of God the father and the Holy Spirit, which we lived out, which as we transform our lives, we live out the sacrifice of Christ. Because now while living sacrificially because we buried the old man of sin, we're living a new, and now we're living sacrificially, not for the desires of the flesh, not for the sins that we used to enjoy, but now we live a sacrificial life in service to God and service to the kingdom. And we can confidently teach others how to be freed from bondage is sin. You know why? Because who else here has been freed from the bondage of sin? Anybody here have been freed from the bondage of sin? What freed you from the bondage you said? The blood of Jesus Christ. Don't you think it might be helpful if we let other people know that they too can be freed from the bondage of sin? That they too have a hope for a better tomorrow and that's your past doesn't have to define you in that there is hope in that God's great love and grace brethren is waiting for them. We look at the scriptures here this morning and we need to remember that as we teach people about the golden rule, we need to make sure we're living it out. And you think about Matthew chapter 7, you think about verse 12. This is where what we oftentimes and Christian them call the golden rule, right? It says in everything, therefore, treat people, the same way that you wish to be treated. For this is the law. This is the profits. How you treat others will say a lot about your faith. Remember what I said? You may be the only Bible that somebody ever reads. What is the impression that you want to leave with them? What's the impression that you want to leave with them of God and of his people? That were just like them. That we send constantly that they can't tell a difference between us. I've often said, if God looks out over the sea of humanity. And he can't tell a difference. Between his people, the church, the bride of Christ and the rest of humanity,.

"I don't know if i could have a better introduction. Thank you matt now. The pressure's on. I wanna share with you this morning. The theme for walker water this year. And then we're gonna take that from talking about walk into. I think a thing that we can all relate to we. We talk about the word change. That's a scary word for some of us change but before we get into this morning for those of you like what in the world has walked for water. Well if you haven't been here for the last twelve years that your new than this being the thirteenth walk for water. Maybe this will help understand so last year and this year we've gone with the theme chains the cycle and you'll have shirts in some of your wearing the shirts and on the back or four icons and that is what to look at those real quick because when you wear the shirt you blast questions. I don't want to be like. Oh i don't know where to shirt comfortable. There's four logos on their done. What you like. The first one is the need for those who struggle to have water hunt daily basis that little person silhouette with the bucket turned over. Just a daily struggle that those around the world go through the don't have access easy access to clean. Water the icon is it comes down to the little of point you to two little silhouettes walking and that's what we're doing today. That's what you all have done for thirteen years including today. The nikon breezy around that water dropped with a nice little squiggly lines and that represents clean water. Which is why we walk for water. And then my favorite is. They're choreographing in the church of christ but the celebration the dancing that takes place at the will but also when we rejoice. So maybe this afternoon. When you're walking you get done. Walk in your four miles. You might still have energy to celebrate the fact that you're making a difference but ultimately that is and i've countless times when i've been to haiti in other places and i've seen someone at a will when the water pumps for the first time or if it's been repaired and flows again i've witnessed cure joy in that kind of celebration and then the aero. Obviously the cycle is changed. Now that cycle that we're talking about is a cycle that they get up every morning every afternoon. They'd take their journey that get dirty water. They get sick in the cycle starts over and over but with you all everyone else helping to change the cycle the cycle is broken and subtly. Thus who here this morning obviously here for common purpose we give the credit to god. And that's where the arrow points up. So that is what your shirt icon means and that is what we'll be doing today but i wanted to show you this for those of you have not worked lie. We walk could you imagine that is your water source. There's a lot of words that can be described but difficult insane dangerous but guess what's in there something. We need for life water. That looks yummy. I mentioned this class this morning. Kind of we kinda laughed. Because i know you guys experienced rainy and dry season but around the world. There's literally rainy and dry season. That is a riverbed in dry season. It'll continue. The water will continue to go down that a river bid many in the rainy season. Where you see brown is full of water is a river bid so the struggle is real but last year we worked together but we were still together and i just wanted to share a couple of memories last year. Madness had this deal still detention pitcher. But you all still found a way to walk for water in various locations. It looks like you walk in december tennessee. With all the geared murray. I don't know i. I usually look like that in october. When i come up for the ball and you guys are short. So i don't know must have been miller chillier and there you go just a flashback to show you it helps you remember the fine even though we're apart you still made that difference and that is what you walk for my favorite pitcher. We don't usually get that high quality photos back but in ghana there was a professional photographer taking pictures at some well. So so that is why we walked for water in the theme is change the cycle and this morning though. We're going to go down a different kind of theme with that. We're gonna talk about changing the cycle in our lives. I'm just gonna leave that up to the rest of the time you can see that in the background. But let me ask you this. When jesus came to this earth. Why did he come. You may very well say. He came to change the cycle in the gospel of john throughout the gospels. We read many accounts where we encountered jesus going into a situation and bringing chains do not specifically in john chapter five. Where we're gonna go to our story this morning to look if you want to go ahead and flip there. John chapter five but right there the chapter before john chapter four jesus encounters woman at the well bring change to her life change to that community then a chapter eight. Is you go on down. You see another counter where jesus brings change with. The woman caught in adultery when jesus encounters us change must take place when jesus encounters us. We have to ask. Are we willing to change. Now i'm gonna tell you this do do you like to change. Do you like change. No i want you to know and don't raise. Your hand confessed this morning but how many of you did not like the fact that some of your parking spots were blocked off. That is frustrating. Who is blocked. My how many of you come into church on a sunday morning. You look at somebody in your seat. I've sat there for twenty years. That's my seat. I don't change by sitting on the left side of the preacher looks different. We do not like change. So when we encounter jesus did he asked us to change our cycle. It's tough john chapter five. Let's go ahead and flip in our bibles they're fitting at a guy who works for an organization that his job is to talk about. Water would take you to the scene of water. John chapter five. We're gotta read versus through nine. Then we're going to focus on one part of the story now. There is in jerusalem by the sheep gate a pool. An aramaic called bethesda which has five five ruth colonnades in these lay a multitude of invalids. Why lane in paralyzed. One man was there who had been invoked. Kim it for thirty eight years when jesus saw him lying there and knew that he had already been there a long time. He said to him. Do you want to be heal. The sick man answered him sir. I have no one to put me into the end of the pool when the water is stirred up and while i'm going going another steps down before me. Jesus said to him.

"lincoln" Discussed on The Thing About Pam
"We knew we'd be back was only a matter of time. Some stories are like that. Especially the one about pam. Last time we told the story. Rust for rio was fully vindicated watching events in something like astonishment pam up would pointed the finger at russ in the killing of his wife. Betsy at just been sent to prison erc crime murdering man just for the purpose of removing suspicion from herself her victim an innocent never saw what was coming for him that man was louis gothenburger whom she lured into a bizarre scheme to make russ for real look like a violent man so prosecutors alleged pam took an alford plea god light behind bars but it wasn't the end of the story. There was still no justice for betsy. Faria stabbed some fifty five times horribly murdered. The case started this. Whole thing and ross. He'd been convicted of her murder. Also sentenced to life than finally acquitted in a second trial after nearly three and a half years behind bars even after that then lincoln county. Prosecuting attorney leah ascii continued to maintain. That russ was guilty that he killed betsy. He filed a lawsuit over his case in received a two million dollar settlement from lincoln county though no one admitted any wrongdoing in two thousand eighteen. A new prosecutor was elected on the vowed to reopen bet. Geez case and new sheriff took over to at the beginning of two thousand twenty one in fact an entirely new team of investigators was brought in to take a fresh look at the murder case which brings us the monday july twelfth. Two thousand twenty one. I'm pleased to announce that we have some significant information to give in the investigation into the death of betsy. Faria prosecuting attorney. Mike would held a press conference. Lincoln county historic courthouse russ sat near the front surrounded by family and supporters. His defense attorney. Joel schwartz stood in the back all eager to hear the news. I'm here to announce that we have filed murder charges in the first degree. Gets pamela hub in the stabbing. Death of betsy faria there. It was come up charged with the killing authorities. Say she tried to pin on betsy husband. Russ prosecuting attorney would said. The circumstantial case is very strong. The facts in this case are quite simply indisputable. Pamela help was the last person to see betsy alive. Cellphone records indicate that she was added near the home at the time of the death. She knew that betsy is husband. Would not be home that night. She lied about her whereabouts. She lied about the details. And lastly she murdered an innocent man in cold blood to prevent herself from being considered a suspect. The motive simple. He said greed in the form of betsy. One hundred fifty thousand dollar life insurance policy which had been changed to make pam sole beneficiary four days before the murder lincoln county. We'll be seeking the death penalty. I do not take lightly the to pursue the death penalty but this case stands alone in its heinousness and depravity such that shocks the conscience. But that wasn't the only news said prosecutor would as they review the original investigation. He said something troubling became quite clear. Sadly all of these facts were available to prosecutors at the beginning. Even while betsy is husband was twice prosecuted for her death. This is one of the poorest examples of investigative work that i as well as my team have never encountered driven largely by ego working toward an agenda rather than truth. And because of this. I'm also announcing today that we are launching an investigation into the potential prosecutorial and police misconduct in the faria investigation. Mike would did not mince words. It's clear to me that investigators made up their minds early into. Betsy is death and that they never once considered pamela up as a suspect. Despite overwhelming evidence the prosecutor jumped to an initial rush to judgement and came to their conclusion too early. That investigation was mismanaged from the beginning. Most concerning however is that information came to my attention from three separate and independent sources. That witnesses were asked to lie on the stand by the prosecutor in that case. It's more their investigation uncovered. Something else at a destruction order have been drafted by the sheriff's office shortly after the acquittal of korea which would have destroyed all the physical evidence in this case. This is very troubling to me. I believe in transparency and the citizens of lincoln county needs to know that no one here is above the law not prosecutors not police officers the prosecutor said he expects to complete the internal investigation by the end of the year and by the way we reached out to former prosecutor. Lee asked for comment but she didn't respond. Meanwhile prosecutor told us pam already had a long chat with investigators detectives from the lincoln county sheriff's office went down to chile gothi Department of corrections to me with bam hub To interview with her Wasn't sure whether or not she'd be willing to speak with us i think. Obviously she must have known that We were working this investigation. But she did she. She sat down spoke with detectives spent about four hours with them and probably would have spent more time if they didn't have to leave. Detectives also asked pam about louis gothenburger. The man she's doing life for killing and she said I unloaded the gun on him in self defense and i would do it again and one more thing set pan. She did tell us that She had been framed. On the death of louis. Gothenburger which i found curious afterwards announcement we caught up with joel schwartz. The attorney who defended russ in both murder trials all along joel had been telling us the evidence leads to pam and frankly there's never been a question as to who was involved in this and it wasn't russ as far as the acknowledgement by finally bringing. Charges is a bit of relief. And i feel much more relief for bessie for his mother and russell for and the rest of her family. And hopefully we'll get to a conclusion here and i'm sure it will be satisfactory in the end as for the investigators and the prosecutor who worked on the original murder investigation. I've always had the belief that there were behind the scenes. Inner workings going on between the prosecutors and the police. The fact that that has been mentioned today is a bit of a surprise that it's now public and the fact that they're investigating prosecutorial as well as police misconduct confirms frankly unfortunately my worst fears but it also confirmed my beliefs in this case. We asked betsy family what they thought about all that. And here's the gist of a statement from her mom and sisters quote for nine and a half years. We've been praying for the truth to come out about bet murder. It is impossible to move on to live in peace. Knowing betsy never received justice. They were sickened. They told us when they heard. Mike would say that might have been misconduct in the original investigation by grateful that his investigators are finally getting to the truth. So now quote. We await the upcoming trial of pam hop and true justice for betsy will hopefully prevail once and for all and russ russ told us he is relieved at the very least after.

I really do think we did a good job at telling the stories of what happened on my tenure with the raiders. How i got their time. They're playing for gruden Playing against gruden. I mean all those things like that. So i think we conquer that chats and i'm i'm open a fence feel the same when it comes out. Paul has been very reserved about letting any in the nuggets from the book. Getaway number two talk with him and media rooms but he's very tight lipped online. Any of the nuggets outside.

Alcott's mine coach talking with him a few years back any kind of put other on my radar. He told me about him. His plane in alabama. And i was one of the things that i love about.

And that's that's what you want out of an offense alarm you know. I don't care about anything. I just want to beat people up. I just want to beat you up. I just want to beat everyone. That's wearing the same uniform as you up. i want. i want to do it and have fun doing it.

Let's appalachian they took everything else. They had where you went ahead. Rob you hudson.

"lincoln" Discussed on This Day In Esoteric Political History
"This was of course about five years. After lincoln and bitter sassine needed and mary todd. Lincoln had spent a fair amount of that time. Lobbying for a widow's pension national was that her husband had effectively served his country during wartime and paid the ultimate price with his life. And so in much. The same way that any soldier or officer's widow gets a pension. She deserved one as well. there is a lot more to this story beyond just a fight for a pension. It is also i think a chance to talk about mary. Lincoln's troubled life The way that she was portrayed in the public imagination her troubles with money for sure So here to do that as always are nicole. Hammer of columbia and kelly. Carta jackson of wellesley. Hello there hey jodie. Hey there So kelly maybe let's back up a few years from this pension fight just to lay out a little bit of context and there's a lot we can say about mary. Todd lincoln. I suppose we should start with with money. Because i do think that a lot of the scandals And ginned up and real around. Mary toddler and do seem to involve her her spending habits. Yeah yeah she had extravagant tastes. Let's start with that. She liked to shop. She had a crude quite a bit of debt. Not just in washington dc. Beverly all over the country and she needed income to not just pay off her debtors but to survive until when we think about how much president lincoln was getting his salary. The time was about twenty five thousand dollars a year Which seems like a lot of money. It was a lot of money back then but she needs substantially more than that. She's about twenty seven thousand dollars in debt. So that's not going to be sufficient in order to pay off her debtor so getting this pension was away for her to try and sustain her. Self it's still doesn't not allow her to pay off a good portion of her dead but she would have guaranteed income. Coming in and three thousand dollars was still significant. Most widows are not getting that kind of money when i think about hearing tubman pension from her husband The mountains only two hundred forty dollars so this is not a lot of money but it is also symbolic equally to being substantive to show that the federal government is going to take care of. Lincoln's about three thousand dollars and eighteen seventies about sixty thousand dollars today just to add some context there But nikki i mean. Where do you come down on this narrative of mary. Todd lincoln as bad with money extravagant spender. A lot of. It seemed to be related to improvements to the white house. Which cost a lot of money but you know it was something that the press really liked to vilify her about and so it just strikes me as this combination of yes there might be some truth but it also seems to me to be a narrative it is absolutely imperative that has a lot to do with her being a woman You know it is true that she spent a lot of money. She had a lot of debt. You know who else spent a lot of money and had a lot of debt. George washington Thomas jefferson right debt had been kind of the people especially elites lived very differently. I think in In the seventeenth and the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries but in her case she had grown up in wealth and in marrying abraham lincoln became part of a middle class more than an upper class of course until they enter the presidency and lincoln himself had this kind of homespun man of the people image and she really cut against that and the press leaned into that that she was a harvey that she was a spendthrift that she was. What's that word. What a heartbe rb that. She was tag. She was the she was somebody who were just like browbeat lincoln. Somebody who Was lose with money who was frivolous. But also domineering like they just. They didn't like her and they made it very clear in the way they wrote about her both before and after his death because the stuff that they right after his death is Times even worse. Yeah and it's even worse because there's no compassion. There's no empathy. There is no trying to understand a woman who not only witnessed her husband's murder at at close point range but also lost several children as well and so she gets labeled as sort of hysterical or crazy or a lot of her pain gets dismissed. We'll put it that way and it's unfortunate. Because even if she was this you know spin thrifty person. She still deserved quite a bit of care. Especially after lincoln's assassination. And we should say that. She lost three of her four sons and the second son that she lost was an eighteen sixty two. It's the middle of a war. Her husband is president and under a great deal of stress as you might imagine and she's just lost a child and that is an incredible burden an incredible trauma and then she loses her husband and then a few years after that a third son dies like she is somebody who was dealing with quite a lot and so she had health issues. Like it's it wouldn't be surprised that she had them to begin with but that they were exacerbated by. This is super understandable. What you're getting at is incredibly deep important and complicated. I want to get back to. I do want to put a couple of little tidbits out there about the more sort of ridiculous scandals. I mean for instance. There's one the old clothes scandal Which is you know. they don't they don't they. Don't make them like they used to. The old clothes scandal was was basically. She tried to sell some of the clothes that were lying around the white house at thrift stores and she actually went to new york under an assumed name and try to to sell off some of her dresses and was discovered and certainly the tabloids. I think loved this. Yeah i wanna stay with that for a second because this is actually an eighteen sixty seven so it's a few years after lincoln assassinated and let's let's tell that story a little differently. Here's this woman who has just been widowed husband. That state hasn't been settled yet. Who isn't dead. Who has lost her children and she has these frocks laying around and she thinks i can sell my dresses so i can have some money. And she's so Embarrassed by this. She doesn't want to be caught out so she goes in disguise to try to sell them. And then it's revealed that she's doing this and instead of people treating her with compassion there lake Look at her the money grubber just wanting to grab more money by selling her dresses but can i say that mary lincoln ahead of her time. Because let me tell you. jackie kennedy. Hey i've got some dresses. People would be painting for these items. I mean painting so again. The cultural sort of precedent of having a state sales or selling your old belongings was not there culturally or was not something that people did. But if you think.

I also one of the the big analytics of a lot of these Internet sites Internet sites okay boomer Ali just okay. Boomer himself is daily active users. So I don't know if there's a metric out there that punishes people for for if there's an existing account but it's not being used if that makes your percentage I don't know the a lot of the analytics. These companies surged strange to me in a lot of them are fudged too. Yeah I did not your Internet. Ads are not working. They're not getting nearly the clicks they're telling you for instance radio that's where it's at and that is true Oh boy I'm going to get to this story. Great Story in The Wall Street Journal over the weekend. The end of America's era of military primacy written by military guy. Oh absolutely WHO's at the medicine here? I it's probably fairly obvious. As China's advanced arsenal grows the Pentagon must focus on emerging technologies not traditional weapons platforms. It was an an OP. Ed piece argument being made by You know a military expert In two thousand seventeen we had just left a briefing where we'd asked to arrange everyone in conversation about China's growing arsenal of their precision strike missiles there long range sensors the counter space capabilities. All this other stuff. Every senator was invited to the briefing about a dozen showed up because people born interested. I guess and they got a depressing dose of reality Pentagon officials in the Obama Administration. One named David Nick. I think I remember that person. spoke publicly last year saying when we do war games when we fight China or Russia the US military gets. It's ASS handed to it. We lose a LOT OF PEOPLE. We lose a lot of equipment. We usually fail to achieve our objective by preventing aggression Through projecting power. Wow you have the great. Crackdown giant protests going on Hong Kong. Right now making the salt more real. Yeah making we wouldn't lose award. It's not like we're getting. You know. We have to surrender and our part of China. Whatever but we would learn to speak Mandarin but we would not We would not prevent it a being so clearly dominant or Be Able to avoid losing a lot of men and material right and you know probably have to come to some sort of an agreement. Okay you get that island if this ends you know that sort of thing right yeah. Well that's clear. Yeah which is not the way you know. Most of us have in our mind about America. Well that's that's because as long as I've been alive and most people listening Ben Alive Right now we've been able to just avoid a war just out of we would just we'd just destroy you. We would lose nothing and you would be obliterated. Yao stay away. Yeah with some notable exceptions the whole limited warfare proportional thing anyway Maybe I'll get into that more coming up later. I'll tell you what I realized. This is unconstitutional. But I would love to see some sort of moratorium on congressman. Lobbying for unnecessary outdated weapons systems. Let's have you know. The generals are the joint chiefs and independent commission. Figure out what we really need to be spending on and just do that. So what does a human value human life worth? This has come up a lot in the last couple of weeks. People usually throwing it around like a like a weapon but some rhetorical win. Somebody talks about opening the economy. How many points on the Dow is worth one human life secretary of the Treasury And I think I think remember Mnuchin saying that's not a fair question Well there actually is a value. The value of statistical life that the government insurance companies never puts on a human life they use the ESL at most federal agencies developed over several decades. And it's about ten million dollars value of human life. Had No idea is worth that if a new regulations boost to myself esteem if a new regulation is estimated to avoid one death a year it will cost about ten million dollars and still make economic sense. Now I read this article in a minute. More interesting is that went along. The dilemma is how do you value reducing? The risk said this economist. At the think-tank is involved in this sort of thing Advisers studied the topic. The economists answer is to ask people what they think. A human life is worth and then observe the behavior on whether or not it lives up to because most people say Human life is the invite. You know you can't put a number go. We do put a number on it with our with our actions in the way we live. Economists use public opinion surveys on mortality. Risk they look at how much more dangerous jobs pay. They study. What. People are willing to spend for safety devices such as bike. The information is then all put together to try to come up with a number they. They calculate how many people are willing to obey for instance various speed limits. I mean we are kind of making a decision at that point. What we think you know life is worth and it'd probably be safer to drive the speed but I'm gonNA drive this speed right. I was running late this morning. I might speed limit was the limit of the engine in my car. I kid of course my friends in the law enforcement community. I would never do that. I think it's interesting. I got to forty and one MAX's out at one zero five and the other one will just keep going until the engine can't go anymore. Oh yeah yeah and I don't know why that is I mean it's got the one has a limiter on it though. The the engine clearly has more but the car won't allow itself to go any faster by the way forward. Is there any way to do something about that? A different chip or I will pass along. The e mails we will inevitably get. I was driving in Germany. I took my car to Germany over the weekend on the auto exact embarrassed but I did. They changed the laws or something no. They're both they're both the same year really interesting. I wonder is it the same model? No I wonder if one is. I mean for instance. My car that I commute in is kind of a bloated old man car It's like It's a rolling living room and it is not built it. I the handled. Well I call it a the whale because it handles like a whale and you would not want to be going very fast and cards just because you couldn't control it but in the right car place hundred but anyway so the government insurance companies have back up one hundred miles per hour when they When they calculate these things society apparently has come up with around ten million dollars the value of a life from the way we react on what we do safety wise. How much how much job has got to pay if it's this dangerous before we'll do it. Right they factor. All this in. It's interesting is that so interesting. Yeah we've we've made this determination without even realizing that we've made this determination ten million dollars. See I'd throw off all my principles for five. I mean I'd sell out to anybody for five million dollars so ten. Maybe I've been pricing myself too low. I figured no takers too high. But I don't know maybe I just need to find the right buyer like real estate. You're still alive in all these scenarios right now. I'm just saying well with five to ten million dollars okay. Okay so I would have to die to get the ten million. Oh all boys. So we're talking about my wife. Have that money so I suppose they have a numbers on there for what a leg is worth or an arm or that sort of stuff. Two Hundred Bucks. Right now are your what. Are you going to do it? But I I'll give you one hundred and seventy five for two of them because I think I deserve some quantity discount prices of your business. You can't have my arm. I don't care what you're offering.

"Bob of Obama's habit of Ado among. And in this guy, this country, my point this this. Make all the stuff I said forget it. I'm idiot. Food Service workers are making significantly more. With the cares act than they were janitorial workers. medical assistance a said that when you get to sales and retail, it's a little bit less But yeah, their way to they my understanding this graph. Estimated percentage. Just just. Say So. Yeah, sales and retail transportation construction teachers are all making more. That's a tough situation Yeah, yeah, it is I don't know how they work that out. Well, it's temporary. It's worth remembering that unless Nancy Pelosi gets away and she wants to extended to twenty twenty seven. To get more people dependent on the government. Because once you're dependent on the government. You will never vote them out or vote out your benefits and she knows that. So again, it would seem to be if you look at it.

"Doing NBC News. The reporter during the STANDUP. It is the only person you can see for miles. Got The mask on our who protected. That's been that's become a big political Symbol Bo. It just has a virtue signal absolutely now. I have to wear a mask in my county and in a lot of situations that I don't I don't mind wearing a mask at all. No we're not a militant anti massacres like me. All I am I'm happy when I see other people in masks not breathing on me doesn't bother me But it has definitely become a political symbol of the. The whole trump didn't wear mask over the weekend Biden. Did wear a mask And that's the clear. Divide in how seriously they take this or whatever But I want to get off on that topic. I am confused when I see people in their car with their mask. That seems like a step to confuse. I feel like that's going too far. Who are you protecting? I But we missed a controversy because we are off on Friday. Yes and Joe Biden the vice president if you follow Cable News. I realize you've heard this already. So hopefully we bring some interesting entertaining angle. Too for it was there will be mockery. It was heavily covered by your cable. News channels mostly. Just your your non trumpeting channel. Cnn almost covered it not at all. They've they almost left it completely out of the cupboard short of there. I think they got beat up enough that they finally decided they need to do address. It a little bit But Anyway Joe Biden was on a A radio show that I'm unaware but apparently has a lot of political heft in the black world. Yes it does indeed. It's a well known. Show in club or the morning crew or the flakes or something. The breakfast club based out of New York good name. Hillary made some headlines when she ran on their. During her campaign it's become kind of a an obligatory obligatory stop for a lot of Democratic candidates and Joe Biden. Was there listen. You gotta come see when you come to New York. Vp by a long way until November. We got more questions. You got more questions. Turn if you have a problem figuring out where you're for mayor trump and you ain't black it don't have nothing to do with trump. It has to do with the fact. I want something for my community. I would love to see my record man. I extended the voting racks. Twenty five years. I have a record that is second to none then up. Acp's endorse me. Every time I've run the world I mean come on take a look at the REC. Wow the if you can't decide between me and trump you ain't black is getting a lot of attention but his angry blast there at the end. About how dare you I? It's not good politics. I know this makes me bad talk show host. But I'm not sure if I heard that that would even stood out to me that whole you ain't black. Oh my God it would to me. I don't think you would have but So look before we get to that. I just want to throw this in That N. double. Acp thing they've put out a statement saying we have not endorsed Joe Biden. Yeah never endorsed Joe by wolves. I think that's worth point but anyway back to the Black. Well wait a second getting back to that. Cnn when they finally did cover the the story edited that part out of the Biden quote the N. double ACP thing so even when they admitted. Alright Old Senile. Joe Is said something completely unacceptable. They edited out the N. Double ACP thing which is just. I mean they're liars professionalize. Both why I don't think it's a big deal. Then you can blast me way. I'll make it all about you. What would the people tried to turn it into a or did turn it into? I shouldn't use prejudicial terms people turned it into or took it as he's saying you know as a race you're there certainly you have to vote. Yes the Democratic Party is felt that way for decades and has expressed that message and every one hundred different ways and both parties both parties knowing how black people are GonNa vote because nine out of ten black people vote Democrat for president every single time. They put that into their polling. So it's just it has been true it is true it's saying it out loud. I guess you're not supposed to but it's just it's just what it is. I think Kanye West and you come out and you're a Republican you get killed. Ride the black community right. Yeah well I think you're being cynical though for a couple of wine. Apparently being cynical about the black vote does vary somewhat. It's a fairly narrow band with the elections are often fairly close So it's it's worth getting more of the black vote. Oh yeah getting. Eleven percent is better than getting nine percent. Because it's a lot of people secondly I think one of the great failings of American politics in last sixty seventy years has been consigning Black America. Whatever that means because you know. I hate a group any group of people together. HAS BEEN CONSIGNING BLACK. America to what a lot of people are calling the government plantation of dependence and defeat and blame in the rest of it and the Democratic Party has has subtly and cleverly pitched that plantation as a good thing. And I think it's incredibly important to individual human being's lives that they understand that those policies from from Lbj On have been disastrous for Black America. I think this conversation is incredibly important and Joe Biden. Went ahead and he said it out loud. Y'All only get to vote one way to shut up and vote than what you're supposed to somewhat of the the premise of Charlemagne's line of questioning our Democrat have. That's been taking the black vote for granted for too long absolutely. Yeah so they're going to continue your a cynical man you've given up on humanity not me. It's absolutely worked. We'll get the black vote no matter what so we don't have to worry about that has has worked for years. I'M GONNA come in pander to you a little bit but you you look this man. Use Dizzy mind miraculous man. What are you kidding? Me Quest is four. I did think that turn at the end was was strange within the like got aggressive. They're diabolic for that. Yeah I know it so well. He did apologize for that. So biking does a reminder my so originally the witness blew up particularly on Fox News. Cnn didn't cover all When it blew up on Fox News than he did issue an apology. We can play that in just a second. I suppose I'd hear how he walked back. Initially he was a Joe. Tried enough initially. He said I was just joking. But that didn't work. I guess some black leaders came out horrified that he'd said that so he had to go further with his apology. We'll play that for you. And then Joe asked the important question did I. Is He a contrite enough? Okay we'll find out. After this brief message from our friends at simplisafe the best overall Home Security System Twenty twenty it is better than the other ones and will cost you less. Not just according to us or to them of course simplisafe's going to say that.
