I hope you check that out as well. Hope you're checking out theringer .com. And on this podcast, gonna talk about the dame trade at the top. We're gonna bring in Ben Thompson from the Techery newsletter, which he's been on this podcast I think four weeks ago. And he's a huge Bucks fan. He's gonna give the Bucks fan side of things. We're gonna do million dollar picks. And then old friend Seth Meyers talking about a whole bunch of stuff. So really good podcast. It's all next. First, our friends from Pro Jam. What's up? All right, I'm taping this on Thursday afternoon. Normally when there's a big MBA trade, I always do the emergency trade reaction right after the podcast. But we just put up a podcast on Tuesday. So I decided to play it a little differently this time. I wanted a little distance, I wanted to listen to stuff, read stuff, and try to form some big picture opinions coming out of this. So I have four smaller ones, then one big one. First one, I thought Portland did an incredible job with this trade. I really liked this trade, especially everyone was trying to bully them in June and July about, oh, you got to take Miami's offer. You just got to. It's where he wants to go. It's the only offer you're going to get. And guess what? They waited. They played it perfectly. They stared Miami down, and they got a much better deal. First of all, they get the Drew Holiday piece that they can flip into a bunch out of their stuff, which we'll talk about in one second. I love the DeAndre Ayton gamble. As you know, on this podcast, I am a big DeAndre Ayton guy. Not in the sense of I'm the biggest fan of his in the world, but I'm a fan of the asset. I just think I love the valued assets, no matter what it is. Whatever market we're talking about, DeAndre Ayton, 18 and 10 for his career, 60 % field goals percentage, 25 years old. He's played in 45 playoff games. He played four rounds in the 2021 finals. Last year, he got his ass kicked by Jokic. Oh, sorry. Like, that never happens. And Phoenix just sold on him, which I can't wait to talk about. But just from a Portland standpoint, they not only get Ayton in whatever they get for holiday, they get the 29 first, they get the two swaps, and they dump Nurkic. Nurkic hasn't had a healthy start to finish all the way through the playoffs here since 2018, which I'm positive was a long time ago. He's basically 12 and 8. He's, you know, a 50 % shooter. I made a list of the top 30 centers. I encourage you to do this at home, because what's more fun than making lists of NBA centers? I can't imagine anything. I made a list of who I thought were the best assets of the center position for talent, contract, everything. He was 29th on my list. The only person I had ahead of him who's technically a starter, unless you start talking about the Detroit or Charlotte guys, was Zubats on the Clippers. I thought he was the 29th best center asset in the league. And Phoenix, you know, just quickly to go to them, they're trying to win this year. They got worse. They turned Ayton's money into Nurkic and Grayson Allen and Nasir Little. Grayson Allen, we already know with him, he can't play in playoff series. We saw him 22. We saw it last year. I heard and read in some places like that, I got two rotation players. Did they? Is Nurkic a playoff rotation player? Is Grayson Allen a playoff rotation player? Because I'm positive he's not. So for the same money that they were spending on Ayton, they got three guys that I don't think are going to help them. In 25, the money comes down a little bit to 23 million just for Nurkic and Little, which is 7 million less than Ayton. And then in 26, that money goes up to 25 .5. But I don't understand what Phoenix was doing. Why not wait to see if Ayton clicks with Vogel? Vogel has such a good history with centers. He rejuvenated Dwight Howard on the 2020 Lakers. He basically created Roy Hibbert's career in 2013 with the defense verticality thing. I thought he was going to do a good job with Ayton. I'm stunned that they gave up on him. I'm almost waiting for one of those, now they tell us stories when, you know, that's where Brian Curtis calls them, where like a week after something happens, there's this kind of notebook dump where it's like, here's seven terrible DeAndre Ayton stories. So maybe that'll happen. But for Phoenix just to be like, cool, we locked this down, man. We got Nurkic. You're trying to win the title. You have KD and Booker and Beal. And like, what are you guys doing? Anyway, from Portland's standpoint, I love the Ayton thing. I love that they didn't get bullied. And I know they're going to turn Drew Holliday into something. So this to me was at least an A minus for them, for where they were two months ago, where Dave's like, I want to go to Miami. That's it. And if you don't trade me there, that's kind of fucked up. And they made this work as it got reported that, uh, I think in the athletic, that he expanded his list to Brooklyn and to Milwaukee in the last two weeks. And that's what Portland was waiting on. You know, they were banking on the fact that he's a competitive dude. He's one of the best 75 pairs ever. He wanted a situation settled. So, you know, you wait, you wait, you wait, they expand the list and then you go. Uh, there's a Drew Holliday piece to this. That's awesome. He becomes a contender prize. I wouldn't call this a Drew Holliday sweepstakes. I reserved sweepstakes for the superstars, but it's a mini sweepstakes. This is somebody that could have a huge impact on the playoff race. You know, not only the usual suspects, everybody's talking about Boston, ironically, Miami is a really good fit for him. And in some ways, um, I'm a little more scared of them with Miami than Dame in some ways, especially at a much cheaper contract with giving up less and keeping some of their assets. Philly, if they could pull it off, they have to be in there in Golden State, Minnesota. I think I have to mention Sacramento, I think is a team that if they could figure out how to get Drew without giving up their core, which is basically Keegan Murray and Sabonis and Fox, like that's, you know, could Davion Mitchell be in that trade with some, with a salary and some picks, who knows. The team that I love for Drew Holliday is OKC. I have OKC, you know, I started doing my MBA research for the over -under spot and I haven't landed on a number for them yet, but to me, they feel like a high forties team with Chet and with the growth of their young guys. And if you just like, let's say they traded Lou Dort and a bunch of their picks, maybe two firsts and two of their lesser picks or three firsts and a second, whatever it is. And they just say, fuck it. And they get Drew and you put him with Giddy and SGA and Jalen fucking awesome Williams and Chet Holmgren and all these other dudes they have, that might be a top three team in the West. I mean, that, that's starting to give me some early 2010s OKC vibes. So where he goes is going to be important. I just feel like there was so much Drew Holliday slander the last couple of days. You know, he's one of my favorite players. Even Haralabob, who was the chairman of the board of the Drew Holliday fan club for years and would have the benefit dinners there and, you know, just did a lot of yeoman's work on that front. And even he was like, yeah, yeah, Dame's better than Drew. That trade makes sense for Milwaukee. I was hurt, Haralabob. I was 100 % hurt by that. But you know, Drew got his ass kicked by Jimmy Butler in the playoffs last year. I get it. It happens. Jimmy was unbelievable. I feel like he would have kicked anybody's ass. By the way, why is Drew Holliday guarding Jimmy Butler? That speaks more to some of the issues with Milwaukee. He was never supposed to be a point guard and a creator. I think he was always better as an off -the -ball guy. We saw that with Rondo and New Orleans and just in general. I want to see him with a point guard. I want to see him just being unleashed, not having the ball a lot, just worrying about hitting threes, being an occasional, you know, make -shit -happen guy and being like the third or fourth best guy on a team without having the offensive responsibility to have. All their half court issues got blamed on him for the last couple of years. And I get it. They weren't like an awesome half -court team, even the other one in the finals, but I really value that dude. I had him, even I did the trade value list in August and I had him 37th and I had Dame 23rd. I think he's one of the best 30 players in the league still. He's 33 years old, which, you know, I'm going to talk in a second about when guards hit their mid -30s, but just in general, I think he's a real asset. If he goes to a team like the Celtics and they can keep Derek White and Tatum and Brown in the center, it's like, look out, man. So little mini sweepstakes, rarely do we get the trade, but then we still get another asset to talk about. Thank you for everyone involved in the trade. And then the fourth small point is just that, you know, not rocket science, Milwaukee bought some Giannis time here. They have one of the best 20 players of all time. They were staring down the barrel of a situation that was not good. I was talking about it on this podcast in late June and early July. I thought he was going to put them on the clock. I thought Mark Lasry selling his stake was a really bad sign for all of this because that dude is smart. As I laid out in June, that guy is really smart. And if he's feeling like, you know what, it's time for me to sell my buck stock, that makes me nervous. And then all the stuff that Giannis said and did, which I thought he did really fairly and really smartly. And I think that dude's about titles and that's it. And I know we say that about players, but I think in his case, I don't think he cares about, you know, what's my legacy, how do I compare against Dirk DeWhisky, any of that stuff. I just think he wants more rings. I mean, think about the guys who have won two rings out of the best 35 guys on my list of my pyramid. Those are all guys in my top 35 that won multiple wings. You go to the one -ring side, Jerry West, Oscar, Moses, Dirk, Jokic, Giannis, Pettit, Garnett, Kawhi, Rick Barry. That's the list he's on now. I certainly don't think he's looking at that list going, I got to get away from these guys, but it's a slightly different list. I think when you win multiple rings in multiple situations, it elevates you in a certain way. I think he fundamentally understands that at least a little bit. I want to be the best player since LeBron James. I think that's a thing that he wants. How am I going to do that? I need more rings. I need more finals trips. He knew from last year and maybe even the Boston series that they just weren't good enough. Whether this trade is going to be the thing that propels them, we'll find out, but he's been in the league 10 years, two MVPs, five first teams, two second teams, and now we have this little two -year window. Kawhi and the Raptors was a one -year window. This is a two -year window, I feel like. With Giannis, he's got two years left in his deals. So does Lopez. Middleton has two in a player option. Dame's got two, and then this crazy $120 million player option extension thingy that he has that just keeps going and going. It's probably two years. There's a world where this could go terribly this season, at least for what the expectations are, and then maybe it becomes Kawhi, Raptors. Maybe Giannis is like, you know what? That didn't work. Trade me. And the Bucks, who have no picks left and no future, they look at it next summer, and they go, all right. We tried it. Giannis, what can we get for you? Dame, what can we get? And they just do a reboot, rehaul. Remember, they won in 2021, which just takes so much pressure out of this. It's so much different than the Clippers situation, where they went all in on Kawhi and Paul George. They give up all those picks and SGA, and they've gotten nothing out of it. They haven't even made the finals. So it's got to happen. I think they at least probably have to make the finals. If they get bounced in round two, do I think Giannis is going to stay because they made this Dame -Mower trade? Probably not. So that leads to the big question, is how good of a trade was this? So there's a big picture angle on Dame, and it's going to sound negative, but I really don't want it to sound negative because I think Dame, I voted for him for NBA Top 75. I think he's been one of the best guards in the last 15 years. I think there's a ton of great things you can say, and there's a chance that he goes to Milwaukee, and this thing is fucking awesome. I know any Celtic fan I've talked to, including Isaiah, who's helping produce this podcast today, the Giannis -Dame pick and roll is just terrifying. Other than Jokic and Murray, it's going to be the single most unstoppable offensive play in the league. It is. We are conceding that point. The spot Dame is in right now, big picture -wise, it's weird. He's a superstar, but he's not, and we've seen guys like this before. I judge superstars by, do you have the resume statistically, and is your team succeeding consistently at a certain level? You can't totally say that about Dame. He's never been on a 55 -win team. He's missed the playoffs completely four times in 11 years. He said three first -round exits. He made the Final Four once in 2019, which was really lucky because Golden State and Houston were the two best teams, and then they got smoked. He's never been on a true contender ever. Instinctively, you go, well, that's not his fault. Who's he played with? Well, he played with LaMarcus Aldridge and CJ McCollum and a couple other guys, but not really anybody. The reason I'm putting this up is there's a success element that he has not had yet that for somebody with his resume is actually kind of unusual. I went and I looked up how many guards in the history of the league averaged 22 points a game for their career and played at least 700 games. I thought the list would be like 20. I didn't know. I didn't know what I was walking into. Only I think 75 guys have averaged 22 a game. So I went and I looked up the list, and it was 10 guys, 700 games, 22 a game for their career. There were some guys who came close like David Thompson, who I think is one of the best guards I've seen in the last 45 years, but had a short career and had some drug issues. He didn't make it. He didn't play enough games. Pete Maravich, 24 .2 points a game, but he didn't play enough games. Kyrie hasn't played enough games yet. Bradley Beale is five games away. I'm actually kind of glad the cutoff's at 700 so we don't have to talk about him. And then Mitchell and Trey Young aren't there yet. There's only 10 guys that made it, and the 10 guys are all fucking awesome. And again, I mentioned this in the context of Dame, who we think he is versus the success he's had. So the 10 guys, Michael Jordan, 30 .1, Jerry West, 27 .1, Allen Averson, 26 .7, George Gervin, 26 .2, Oscar Robertson, 25 .7, Kobe, 25 .0, Harden, 24 .7, Curry, 24 .6, Wade, 22, barely made it, and Russ, 22 .4, and then Dame is at 25 again. All right, what does he not have that those other guys have? Well, MJ, don't need to talk about him. Don't need to talk about Jerry West, who's the freaking logo. Allen Averson, pretty good comparison, right? Big stats, really memorable player, but not a ton of success. Here's the difference. Averson made the finals once. He won an MVP. Dame has done neither of those things. George Gervin was the best scoring guard of the 70s. He made two final fours. He had some bad luck. He really, in 79, really should have came close. And some of it's on him, right? He could have come through. Bobby Dandridge is the one that ended up coming through for the Bullets. They lose. But two final fours, he had four top five MVP finishes, five first teams, four second teams. He was just unassailably the best guard in the league until MJ. Oscar Robertson, don't need to go through him, but he won a ring and an MVP. Kobe, five rings and an MVP. Eleven first teams for Kobe, by the way. James Harden, three final fours, an MVP, six top five MVP finishes, six first team MBAs. And even though Harden has never made the finals as the best guy, he made it with OKC as the sixth man, you could build a contender around Harden. We saw it. We haven't really seen it with Dame. I think that's a fair thing to bring up. Curry, four rings, two MVPs, you know, the Curry thing. Dwayne Wade, three rings, two top five MVPs, two first teams, three second teams. He's more in the Dame waters a little bit, but he had the 2006 finals and he was the second best guy with LeBron on those heat teams. And then Westbrook, who you would say, well, Dame had a better career than Westbrook. Did he? Westbrook made the finals in 2012. He was second best guy on that team. Almost made the finals in 2016. He won an MVP. He had two first teams and five second teams. It's at least like a real argument. And I think when you look at Dame, he only had that one 2019 round three, got bounced. He's only had one top five MVP finish. He's only had one first team MBA and four second team MBAs. Really, really good top 75 career. But the piece that's missing is, have you been on a really good team? Have you made a real run at it? Which is why, you know, I think this Milwaukee trade is so much fun. This is his real chance. I get nervous about a couple things with this trade. One is that, you know, if you look at the 33 and older guards who average 22 points a game in a season. Jordan did it twice. Curry did it twice. Still going. Kobe did it three times. Jerry West twice. Sam Jones once. Hal Greer once. That's the entire list. Now the NBA is different. We have more three -pointers now. It's easier to score. Scoring is the easiest it's ever been. Guys can play at a longer age. So I'm not ruling out Dane being good for the next three years. But just pointing out, history is saying, be a little nervous. In general with guards, like Chris Paul, we saw from age 35 to 36 to 37, like it just dropped. But that's two years older than Dane. Maybe it's fine. I just worry about guards. We have not a lot of instances with guards in their mid -30s of them either peaking as players or being able to sustain whatever success they had during their prime. It always starts to go down with really no exceptions, except for Steph Curry. He's the only non -exception. So if your case is Dane's as good as Steph Curry, or Dane can be as potent as Steph Curry on a winning team, like, you know, Steph Curry is better than Dane, but I'm not going to argue that he couldn't do a lot of the stuff that Curry did in Golden State. The bigger issue for me, the age I'm definitely worried about. Dane has not been healthy the last couple of years, and we have not seen him play nine straight months at playoff basketball with a big bullseye on his back. Everybody coming after you, you're the best team. We haven't seen him do that ever, much less than the last couple of seasons. So can he stay up? Can he stay healthy? That's one thing. The defense with Dane just got kind of swept under the rug the last couple days, and I don't really understand it because there's five categories of defensive player I feel like. There's excellent, there's good, there's average, there's not so good, and then there's bad. And I think Dane's a bad defender. I think the stats back it up. Like, his defensive rating last year was 245 out of the guards. He's the 245th guard for defensive rating. You know, 117 .4 individual defensive rating is 483 overall. Portland's team's always defensively, it was the Achilles heel for them. Partly because of Dane, because he couldn't guard anybody. He's too small. And, you know, think about what we saw from the playoffs the last couple years. I think about the 2020 bubble Celtics playoffs, not infrequently, because I think that team had a chance to potentially win a title. What happened? Everyone hunted Kemba Walker. It was hunting season. It's like, where is he? Got to get a switch. Got to get Kemba Walker guarding somebody who's bigger, or got to beat him off the dribble, and it just became a hunt session with him. And basically, he got played out of the league. He's not in the league anymore. You know, we had this with Isaiah Thomas, too, in the mid -2010s. I think it's been an issue with Kyrie Irving. The Celtics certainly went at him in the playoff series with Brooklyn a couple years ago. Curry, you saw, who I think is a better defender than people give him credit for, but the And he's a much better defender than Dame is. Jordan Poole is somebody that got hunted in playoff series recently. Chris Paul, obviously, is a big one. Jalen Brunson, remember what the Heat did to him? Mitchell, when he was on Utah, this was a huge issue. And then Trae Young, obviously. My fear with Dame is he's a DH, and I think in Portland, part of the reasons he was able to put up the stats he did was because he wasn't playing defense, right? It was just, how many points can I score? My team isn't very good, and I'm just going to do my thing. He's an incredible offensive player. But how much of a trade -off is the defense, right? Well, you think, all right, well, Milwaukee, they're really good defensively. They'll be able to protect him. Here's the team. Giannis, Dame, Lopez, Portis, Middleton, Conaton, Beauchamp, Crowder. Who's guarding Trae Young on this team? Who's guarding Jason Tatum? Here's a partial list of guys that I don't think this team will be able to guard this season. Devin Booker, Tatum, Butler, Trae Young, Kyrie, Curry. Who's going to be chasing Curry around the screens? Dame lowered? Good luck. SGA, Luca, Mitchell, Murray, Edwards, Brunson, Ja, Garland, Fox, Halburn. Are they going to be able to cover Derek White? I don't know. The way this team is constructed, they are not going to have the ability to guard other guards at all, which means they're just going to have to be in a shooting match with them, right? It's going to be not much different than what's going to happen with Phoenix, where they're just literally going to have to outscore the other team. I've just watched too much playoff basketball over the last couple years, where it's like, if you have that weak link on defense, and you're playing a team that's smart enough, they're going to go after that weak link. Like, think about them against the Lakers, right? The Lakers figure their crunch time. Let's say they make the finals. It's Milwaukee and the Lakers, and Lakers crunch time. They're going to have LeBron and Davis and Austin Reeves and, I don't know, a shooter and a point guard, whatever. All they're going to be doing is trying to find where Dame is on the court and going after him. What about when they play Boston? Boston puts out White and Brogdon and Tatum and Brown and a center, and all they're going to be doing is trying to make sure Dame is covering somebody who has the ball who's now torturing him. I think it's a real problem for them. And what's funny is they gave up Drew's defense and, you know, they, what they gave up on defense, which is significant, and they gained an offense, it might end up just being a wash and they might just be a different version of the same team where they still have a huge flaw. It's just on the other end of the court. I'm just shocked that nobody brought up the defense. I agree he's an amazing offensive player and what's cool about this trade and what I'm excited about as a basketball fan is, can he go up a level? Right? A lot of these stats he put up, especially the last couple years. They didn't mean anything. They were, he was on bad teams. Like, who cares? Ultimately, Bradley Beal scored 30 points a game on the Wizards. Who cares? I think most really good offensive players, if they're on a bad team, can get between 25 and 30 a night. Can you do it nine months in a row? Can you do it when you're getting hunted on defense all over the place? How much can Milwaukee protect him? And what does he have in the tank at age 33 with 900 plus games on the O 'Dominor already? I'm still afraid of the Bucks, but people have, like, FanDuel had them as best odds in basketball and I think most people feel like they're the favorite now. I don't feel like there's a favorite. I think you can go through every team. Boston, I could, I'm scared of Porzingis. What's going to happen with Jalen Brown out there? He has contracts. Can Peyton Pritchard, all these different things. Philly, God only knows. Miami, they're unquestionably worse. Yeah, Milwaukee is going to be really good, but depending where Holiday lands and how this all plays out, I just think it's still wide open. And the other piece, so if you're just talking Boston, Miami, Tatum kills Milwaukee. I have no idea why. Boston is kind of built to at least stay with Dame and, you know, Derek White is about as good of a person you're going to have to try to keep Dame in check, at least. And Boston's done a really good job of guarding Giannis over the years. They don't have Grant Williams this year, but I just don't think, I think there's as many ways this goes wrong as it goes right, I guess would be my final thought on this because for what they gave up, especially with that 29 unprotected and the two swaps and, you know, they are all in on this team. And you know my theory, when you go all in on a team, you better think you can win. Not positive, but it's an awesome trade. It really is. It makes the league so much more fun. Dame and Giannis together. I'm going to enjoy watching Portland. I still have my eating stock. Watching Phoenix fans slowly realize that Derkiszna isn't the answer is going to be fun and then we'll see where Drew Holliday goes. So really fun trade. We're going to talk about it a little bit more with Die Hard Bucks fan, Ben Thompson in one second. Let's take a break.

I'm Josh, and there's Chuck, and this is Short Stuff. And we are going to talk about something that has been overlooked for far too long, which is the origins of the plus, minus, multiplication, division, and equal symbols. I thought this was really cool, by the way. You put this together with help from FASCO, Caltech, Science ABC, among other places. And I had never thought about this stuff because I'm not a math person, but I love origin stories. And so I thought this is really neat, especially the fact that these symbols came about to begin with because people, before they had these, you wrote out a math problem like this long word problem. But not like, you know, a train's traveling in this direction kind of thing. It's more like I have divided 10 into two parts and multiplying one of these by the other. The result was 21. Then you know that one of the parts is thing and the other is 10 minus thing. Right. That was an excerpt from a 9th century algebra book by the mathematician Muhammad ibn Musay Al -Kharwazmi. I'm pretty sure that's his name. Today, you would take that same formula and write it out as x times 10 minus x equals 21. Yeah. So simple. That's it. And that reveals why these things were so important. It just saves you so much time. So not only did it make writing an algebra book that much more attractive, it made teaching it that much faster. You might not have necessarily learned it any faster, but you definitely could teach these things faster with these notations rather than writing it out. And I also saw, Chuck, that some of those sentences that they would write, some people would put it into verse, metered verse, like poems. That takes a lot of time and it's unnecessary. Yeah. And especially at the time when you're writing with an eagle's feather and an inkwell. Sure. You know what I mean? That really drags too. It's not like you're just dashing this stuff off with a pencil. Nope. So some folks came along and changed all that. According to the VNR Concise Encyclopedia of Mathematics, hot read, the origin of the equal sign goes like this. A man named Robert Ricord, or Ricordae, was the royal court physician for King Edward VI and Queen Mary, and very influential mathematician in Wales. And he got tired of writing out equals over and over. So he thus proposed the equal sign because it is two little equal lines, and that's parallel equal lines. And I never thought about it, but it's brilliant. Yeah. He said a pair of parallels or twin lines of one length, and then he shows what he's talking about because no two things can be more equal. And there's a lot of extra vowels in those words, but he gets the point across. And he was saying like, this is such a great time saver. I'm so tired of saying is equal to. And he wrote it in a book called The Wet Stone of Wit. And of course, a wet stone is what you sharpen things with. So it sharpens your wit to read this book. I love that title. And it actually became very influential and well -read as far as 16th century math books go. And Robert Ricord is credited with coming up with the minus symbol and introducing it to his people back then. The equal sign, you mean? What did I say? Minus sign. Oh, just wait, Chuck. All right. Well, we're there. Plus and minus are what we use to indicate adding something and subtracting something, as everyone knows. The terms themselves come from Latin, where plus means more and minus means less. And the other thing is the plus symbol itself is also from the Latin word et et, meaning and, like this and that equals that, which is pretty great. So at one point there was a French philosopher named Nicole Oresme from the 14th century who used that plus sign as a shorthand for et, which is what they used to write. And at first it didn't take, right? I think like people weren't universally accepting this. Yeah, it wasn't until like the 16th or 17th century that it started to really kind of take off. I think the 16th century. And apparently there was competition at first too, that it wasn't just the plain old plus sign, that equal cross, that there were other crosses in the running too, including the Maltese cross. It's a great looking cross, but it takes a lot more time to write the Maltese cross out than it does to make a plus symbol. And the whole point of these things was to save time. So everybody said, yeah, Maltese cross, we like you, but we're going to go with the plus sign. That's right. So that's plus. We got equals, we got plus, minus now. In Europe, there was an Italian mathematician named Luca Pacioli. And Luca was using the symbol P with a little line over it for plus, an M with a little line over it for minus. And no one's exactly sure, but it seems to be that the M was just dropped, right? And then the minus sign, because we already had a plus sign, became the minus sign. Yeah. So you don't need the plus sign. Forget you P with the tilde over it. We're going to take the M instead. And it wasn't Robert Ricord who came up with that, but he was the one who introduced it to England.

Yes, I would have had another 22 ,000 votes. Are you saying you needed those votes in order to win? Are you acknowledging you didn't win? I'm not acknowledging no. I say I won the election. When we ask people how they feel about getting this rematch, they said that they think that means politics in the U .S. is broken. Now from the ReliefFactor .com studios, here's Mike Gallagher. Boy, we live in a broken world, don't we? The weekend was chock full of bad news. A Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputy was apparently ambushed as he sat at a red light. Somebody assassinated him. They pulled up next to him and shot him in the head. A video was released of two kids in Las Vegas murdering a retired police chief, a guy on his bike out for his morning ride in Las Vegas. These two kids thought it would be funny to mow him over to kill him and they did. According to Charlie Kirk, one of the two perpetrators is right now free. They don't even have both of them behind bars. The two punks, the two cowards, the two monsters who murdered this guy in cold blood. And also, of course, we might as well get this out of the way. We got President Trump with an answer to Kristen Welker on NBC's Meet the Press and her debut as the new host, which gave a lot of ammunition to Trump haters who want to hurt him and try to wreck his chances of becoming the nominee in 2024. This is an interesting dilemma that Republicans have. Here's the dilemma. Pro -life is a centerpiece, is a foundation of the Republican Party fighting for the sanctity of those unborn babies, the sanctity of their lives, the sacredness of the innocent. That's a centerpiece, that's foundational for the Republican Party. And whether we like it or not, this particular debate that we're having in America is over abortion crushing us at the ballot box. And Donald Trump, I believe, was trying to address that with Kristen Welker on Meet the Press. Let's get it out of the way. I've been dreading this all weekend. Well, it wasn't all weekend. I mean, this first broke, I think, Saturday. They gave a little preview of his answer. I don't love his answer, but I also don't love the way Trump critics are pouncing on him, claiming he's not pro -life. I got into a big knockdown drag out, as I expected I would with my friend Mark Davis in Dallas, because Mark is now hell -bent on proclaiming that Donald Trump is not pro -life. And he's saying that because of this exchange with Kristen Welker yesterday on Meet the Press. So for the first time in 62 years, I'm not going to say I would or I wouldn't. I mean, DeSantis is willing to sign a five -week and six -week ban. Would you support that? I think what he did is a terrible thing and a terrible mistake. But we'll come up with a number, but at the same time, Democrats won't be able to go out in six months, seven months, eight months and allow an abortion. Now, there are people like my friend Mark Davis who took that answer and that proclaimed Donald Trump is not pro -life, like it's important to proclaim or make some kind of declaration that he is not pro -life. And here's what Mark tweeted over the weekend. The heartbeat bill is, quote, a terrible thing and a terrible mistake, unquote. Mark said, I loved every day of his presidency. Thank God he beat Hillary. And if he's the nominee, I'll walk through fire to help him beat Joe Biden. But Trump is not pro -life. Now, as expected, Mark and I had a pretty solid disagreement only because I believe it's ever a ten the march for life. The guy who promised to get Roe v. Wade overturned because that was terrible federal. That was a terrible federal ruling and appointed Supreme Court justices who did just that to claim that Donald Trump is not pro -life is preposterous. It's absurd. It's virtue signaling. And perhaps it's just the opportunistic way you chalk up some points for Ron DeSantis, because clearly Team DeSantis is pouncing on Donald Trump over this remark. I believe two things can be true at the same time. You can be pro -life and you can acknowledge that this issue is killing us at the ballot box and we're losing elections. And here's what Mike Cernovich, who's a conservative influencer on social media, here's what he tweeted or posted on X. He said, if you want to be pro -life, no exceptions, good for you. Lose every election, have no political power, then see what life looks like in a Bolshevik hellhole. Will you feel good because you didn't compromise as your children starve? That's the alternative. And I really do appreciate his point. I am pro -life. I'm proud to tell you every day about Preborn. I want you to support an organization like Preborn. I want women to see ultrasounds and see what that baby inside their womb looks like, because the chances are that woman is going to choose life. I have fought and represented the life movement for many, many years, but I'm also realistic enough to know that if we lose election after election after election because too many women are turning against the GOP over additional abortion restrictions, we're never going to have any Republicans in office to prevent more carnage against the unborn, because we may never win another election. And that's the dilemma. I truly believe that Trump was answering the question on Meet the Press with that in mind, that the reason he thinks it's a terrible idea is he thinks it's costing us elections. Is he pro -life? Of course he is. Was it a clunky answer? Perhaps. Should you want to score points by declaring that Trump is now somehow some wild -eyed pro -choice Democrat? I don't think that's fair and I don't think that's reasonable, but I'm going to turn it over to the smartest audience in America. That's you. Here's the PhD weight loss and because you probably followed this controversy over the weekend. I want to get your take on it. I want to get your reaction. I heard from my pal, Joey Hudson. A lot of people in South Carolina were shocked at what Trump said, very disappointed in his answer. Do you feel that way or do you recognize he is trying to navigate the challenge of winning elections so that we can continue to have the kind of pro -life presidency that he delivered?

A highlight from Shallow
"Hello, my friends, and whoa, let's see here. Adjusting. Haven't been here. I've been on the road for a week. Things need to be adjusted. Here we go. All's good, everybody. Dennis Prager here, finally back. Four time zones in five days. I do have a sense of my country. Many different countries in this country, but really two different ones, left and right. There's something that I need to stress aside from the moral character being so low on the right, but many of them are fine people otherwise, but the intellectual shallowness of the left is something to behold. There is no day that has passed in the last two months that some major medium has not attacked me and or PragerU. The attacks are so, so revealing about the intellectual shallowness of the left. You can't be deep and a leftist. It is not possible, literally not possible, because leftism is foolishness. It's like you couldn't be a communist and deep. Your perception of the world was so flawed as to enable you to do immense amounts of evil. I'll give you an example. To show how bad a person I am, they take one of my essays, which says that just as men have to be taught to control their natures, otherwise they end up engaged in terrible acts of violence, so too women have to be taught to control their natures, otherwise just as in the case of men, where their passions and appetites, etc. would rule them, women's emotions would rule them if they're not taught to control them. So across the board on the left, I'm called a woman -hater for saying that, but why am I not a man -hater for saying that men have to be taught to control their natures? Because they're so intellectually shallow, and because they believe that a criticism of just the nature of women, just as the criticism of the nature of men is important, you can't criticize anything about women. They are apparently, according to the shallow of the left, perfect. They don't have to be taught to control themselves or their nature. I'm actually called a misogynist, a woman -hater. And the comments of leftists also give you an idea of the intellectual level of these people. Here's one. He probably writes that because he doesn't get sex. This is a typical comment. There you go. That man knows my marital life. He probably believes it. Or she. I have no idea. They never put their names in. Your children are being taught not just often by sick people, truly sick, not always by any means, but often, who truly do believe that sex is not binary and that children should be exposed to drag queens at the age of five. But these people are intellectual midgets. That's the other part you should understand. When they attack PragerU, they are attacking an intellectual achievement that so dwarfs that of the people who attack us as to be laughable. I could literally read to you for three hours attacks on us because Oklahoma, Texas, and Florida are considering allowing teachers to use our materials and classes. God forbid children should be taught to love their country. Literally God forbid, well, they don't believe in God for the most part, which by the way is something I am going to share with you later. There was a piece recently in the New York Times about the decline of religion in America. I need to read to you the comments. I'm sure you didn't see this, my dear, dear producer. The comments of New York Times readers about what a joyful day it is in America that religion is dying. Those are the most very rare for a one article to get 2 ,895 comments. This is from a sweet, usually foolish, not always man, Nicholas Kristof. America is losing its faith. So I will share that with you later on because a new story is out of another young person mutilated by the left, literally mutilated. If you don't understand that the left is morally vile, then you don't have a functioning moral compass. I distinguish between left and liberal all the time. I wish liberals made that distinction. There's another story about another mutilated young person because of the sick people who are called doctors and therapists. At 16, I was diagnosed with gender dysphoria in under an hour. This is from the Daily Mail. Is this from today? Yesterday, yep. And given sex change surgery after just two appointments, I am suing the doctors who permanently mutilated me. Is there anything in American history in which the medical profession has participated? And this is an open question. There might be. I mean, eugenics, would that be an example? Would be the use of blacks for the Tuskegee experiments? But this is so much more widespread, I believe, is it not? I don't know. I don't know enough about the, you know what I'm referring to with the Tuskegee experiments. It was very hard for me in life to acknowledge that doctors could be evil, partially because we so venerated doctors in my home. Doctors are close to God in Jewish homes. And my own brother is a distinguished doctor. So it's very hard for me to, just as it's been hard for me to acknowledge that religious people could be evil, because I think of a Bible -based religious person as almost inevitably inclined to goodness. That's not the case always, to say the least. It's very hard to guarantee goodness in this world. A woman who claims she was rushed into transgender surgery is suing the doctors who gave her a double mastectomy as a child. Wow. Boy, do I hope. The lawsuits, that will be the issue. I hope these people are sued into bankruptcy. I hope they are financially crushed. And the despicable children's hospitals, again, to think of the word despicable in the same sentence as children's hospital, can you think of a more beautiful place than a place that treats children? And look at what the left has done to children's hospitals, because the left destroys everything it touches. Say that when you wake up, when you walk by the way, when you go to bed, when you stand up, when you sit down, and you will understand what is happening in America. The left destroys everything it touches. Luca Hein was given the irreversible operation at 16 and says the surgery has left her with daily pain, while the hormone drugs may have robbed her of the chance of becoming a mother. The Minnesotan, now 21, suffered a traumatizing few years as a teenager when her parents went through a bitter divorce and she was groomed by a man she met on the Internet. Poor thing, poor thing. Yes, there is such a thing as bad luck in life, my friends. Religious people are annoyed at me for acknowledging that. It's hard for me to believe this was God's will. She became increasingly withdrawn and spent more time online where she began following trans influencers and became convinced she was born of the wrong gender. Luca claims she was diagnosed with gender dysphoria by a therapist within an hour during her first session and was referred for top surgery after her second appointment. Top surgery. The left comes with great euphemisms. We shall return. I'm Dennis Prager. Gold dealers are a dime a dozen. They're everywhere. What sets these companies apart and whom can you really trust? This is Dennis Prager for AmFed Coin and Bullion, my choice for buying precious metals. When you buy precious metals, it's imperative that you buy from a trustworthy and transparent dealer that protects your best interests.

A highlight from Commemorating The 22nd Anniversary Of The Sept. 11th, 2001 Attacks
"It's funny how people lie about actual real world events, even as we witnessed them on video, like Trump's visit to the Iowa football game. And he just got a resounding welcome. And they were trying to pretend he was being booed. You know, because there might have been a smattering of boos or a few people that gave him the middle finger, they wanted to pretend that he didn't get an absolute hero's welcome at the football stadium. And the video showed he did. Even CNN acknowledged it. Screaming, USA! USA! Trump! Trump! Trump! Man, oh, man. Republicans need to focus on Iowa and New Hampshire to try to stop him. I guess that might be their firewall if you're Ron DeSantis or Nikki Haley or one of the others. I don't know how they're going to stop him. We shall see. It's September 11th. We're broadcasting from lower Manhattan. It's been 22 years since the September 11th attacks changed our world forever, changed our way of life, changed the way we view, oh, things like freedom. Freedom is on my mind today a lot. And I want to start with a difficult question about 9 -11. You know, 9 -11 spurred the Patriot Act, where the government felt that steps needed to be taken in order to be able to thwart terrorism. And the Patriot Act essentially took away the freedom that many, many Americans had enjoyed. Now, I understand we've got to try to figure out how to battle terrorism. Totally get it. But what I'm not too clear on is when the door got cracked open, where today the government is criminalizing speech to such an extent that they want to lock up the 45th president of the United States. The New York Times did a huge piece. Trump's indictments, key players in the 2020 election effort, it is quite the quite the article. They call out just about everyone in Trump's orbit and essentially accused them of being co -conspirators in a crime to overturn the 2020 election. It's insane. It's insane to witness the absolute destruction of speech in this country. And I want to ask you a difficult question. I want to start with it. Did it begin with the Patriot Act? Did this begin with 9 -11? Because my hunch is it might have. And if so, then Republicans are culpable as well. I think the more immediate place we're at right now is due to COVID. COVID cracked open the door to say, hey, if you question anything about the vaccine or about masks or about lockdowns, we're going to destroy your life. We're going to get you fired. We're going to deplatform you. We might even put lock you up. If you dare, I know a guy who lost a job, a good job, because he expressed a belief on social media that he shouldn't have to wear a mask because his coworkers were triggered by him. Now, he has since sued the employer, and I hope he wins. That's still winding its way, I think, through the legal process. But that's just one example of many. Everybody has an example. Everybody knows an example of somebody who paid a heavy price for daring to open their mouth. It used to be that America is a place where you were allowed to open your mouth. You were allowed to question authority. You were allowed to question any narrative you wanted, and we weren't going to lock you up for it. Democrats in 2016 questioned the election. All of them did. I've played that montage for you 100 times. Hillary, John Lewis, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Jimmy Carter, they all said Trump didn't win. The New York Times isn't doing a big expose on them. The New York Times isn't calling them out. But now they're calling out, and I mean everybody, Ronna McDaniel, Ted Cruz, Mike Lindell, anybody within—in fact, I saw in the comments section of this shocking article in the New York Times, somebody said, well, shouldn't Fox News be next? What about talk radio? Yeah, that's right. The left wants to lock all of us up for daring to express opinions. When did this terrible, dark chapter begin? Was it COVID, or was it 9 -11 and the creation of the Patriot Act? Let's start there. I want to flood my phone lines here on this Monday in the Relief Factor studios with your phone calls. Right here in the Ph .D. weight loss and nutrition phone number, it's 800 -655 -MIKE. That's the way for you to join us. I want you to tell me where you think it began. Did it begin with 9 -11 and the Patriot Act? Because we're in a bad place right now. I just read that New York Times article three or four times in a sense of shock. Could not think they can get away with weaponizing and criminalizing free speech in America. And that's a bad place to be. Let's get your take on it. And again, you're smart. You got the smartest audience in the world. Where did it start? Did it begin with 9 -11? Did it begin with COVID? Did Republicans do enough to stop this? Give me your take on tyranny Democrat Party style 2023 America. 1 -800 -655 -MIKE. 800 -655 -6453. Press 1 to come on air with us. Press 2 to leave a voicemail.

A highlight from FULL INTERVIEW - Dr. Ashley Lucas, Founder of PHD Weight Loss & Nutrition
"Have you noticed we started calling our call -in line, the PHD weight loss and nutrition line? That was from me because I'm so committed to telling everybody who hears my voice that you can say goodbye to the unwanted pounds that you've been carrying forever. I mean I've I've fought weight for my whole life. And then my friends Joey and Peg Hudson in South Carolina started raving about something called PHD weight loss and nutrition. And I want to take just a couple of moments to bring back to the show one of my favorite people in the world. Smartest, one of the smartest people I've ever met. And she has quite a life story. Former professional dancer. There's a lot of demands on professional ballet dancers and ballerinas and what their body has to look like. And Dr. Ashley Lucas put together years of education in nutrition and metabolism to come up with PHD weight loss and nutrition. And I gotta brag on it some more. Dr. Ashley, welcome back to the show. I see you're in the Dr. Ashley show studios. Your YouTube channel, the Dr. Ashley show is doing great I hear. It is. It's been so much fun. I've helped with the YouTube channel and now we are pulling that into a podcast template forum so that people can hear it while they're driving or wherever they might. You know, Dr. Ashley, when I talk about PHD weight losses taking the country by storm, it's true. We're going to Israel this fall and there's a bunch of people from the upstate of South Carolina who are going. I think there's 15 or 16 people just from the upstate who are going to go on the Prager Gallagher trip. Of that group, four of them just began PHD. It's so neat to hear people who are enthusiastic. I meet people everywhere I go. Last event I had in San Diego, a guy walks up to me and he says, Mike, thanks to you and PHD weight loss and nutrition. I lost 67 pounds and the guy looked great. He was about a 50 year old man. He looked absolutely fit. It's amazing. The beauty of PHD and that's why I can't brag on this program enough and I want to keep talking with you as much as you're willing to come on the show. First of all, you're not hungry so there's not a severe caloric restriction and you don't go through crazy exercise routines. I know people who literally wipe themselves out trying to exercise their way into significant weight loss and that doesn't really work, does it? No, it doesn't. We've talked about this a lot on this show, but the body is much more complicated than calories in and calories out and really what we want to do is target the belly fat. The belly fat, those fat cells that are in your belly secrete these hormones and there are these hormones that cause inflammation in the body, which results in joint pain and skin irritation and type two diabetes and cardiovascular disease. All of these negative health consequences and these fat cells also make you crave and make you hungry and weight gain really isn't your fault. It has nothing to do with you. It's all dependent upon this hormonal situation that's occurring in the belly fat and so when you think about dropping weight and exercise and calories really and what we want to do is we want to target a way to change the metabolism so that your body is fat. And so through that, when we look at the type of exercise that create impact, it's really not that chronic cardio, the type of exercise where you get on the elliptical machine and you just keep going and going and try to burn as many calories as possible. When you're looking at exercise, it's really about the functional way that the movement is working in the body and how it's tackling the fat cells specifically. So we want to focus on lifting something heavy resistance training, not enough to cause any type of injury, but enough where it really gets the body burning fat. So lifting something heavy, whatever that means to you and then some kind of intensity interval training and this doesn't have to be lengthy. It doesn't have to be anything too strenuous for sure. Dr. Ashley Lucas, the founder of PHD Weight Loss and Nutrition is joining us from the Dr. Ashley Studios. You're not going to want to miss her podcast, her YouTube channel. You can find everything by going to drashleyshow .com. Dr. Ashley show .com and I want to do something. I'm going to throw you a little bit of a curveball Dr. Ashley, but I know you can take it. I get questions all the time about my journey on PHD Weight Loss. I want to open up our phone lines to anybody who has a question for you or me about the program. So 800 -655 -MIKE because after all it is now the PHD Weight Loss and Nutrition phone line. Thank you very much.

"Saludos, saludos to all those who have listened to this. It is a pleasure to be able to be here with you to simply discuss the book, the book, the book, with the point of view or the way in which each one of us we interpret the book, and today we want two things, first of all, we want to thank Emmanuel for not being with us because of the fact that he was a member of his team, and, as always, with us, it is our pleasure to introduce David Lopez, Andres Marin, Alejandro Pizarro, and one of our executive producers, Paola Reyes. And this is very special, because we have with us the author, Hernán Dálvez, the author of the book, Mission, Gracias y Libertad, and the author of the book, the reform of the IAEU Argentina Uruguay, director of publications, Juan Uno Uno Publishing House. The author, Hernán, welcome to the show. Yes, it is a program where, when I met Hernán Dálvez, I said to the group that we invited Hernán, we wanted to discuss it, we wanted to share with us the impact of the literature and the context in which it was formed, and it is a place to be. Thank you very much. Thank you very much. I hope that you have enjoyed it, and with the help of the book, I would like to thank you. I am the author of the book Mission, Gracias y Libertad, and this book is another author. I am the author of the book, The Hero of the IAEU, which is the book that is used in the United States in the country of Uruguay. I have a congregation called San Lucas, which is one of the largest congresses of our church. We are talking about the book, Galatas, and we are in the capital of the U .S. No, no, we are talking about Galatas, I just wanted to comment. I think that the first time we had one person, Hernán, was relevant during this program because he did not want to be able to express the love of the pastor, who is also a pastor, Hernán, obviously. But I think that the work of writing, literature, alternatives to Latin America, has been much more relevant than the mission of a pastor. But I don't know if I would want to be able to express the love of the pastor, right? But I... The love of the pastor, Hernán. It has been a lot of love, but I think that it has been more than that for the rest of the day, because in the editorial, Hernán is one in Latin America. Wow, that's great! Thank you very much, Hernán, that's great! No, no, Hernán. Hernán, well, at the end of the day, Hernán, we are fans of the idea, we are the ministers, we are the leaders who are really trying things that are not one other editorial to introduce. Well, Hernán has done a lot of things. Well, Hernán has done a lot of things. Because I would like to test this idea of this monopoly of theology that existed for years in Latin America where it was only introduced by theology, because the other is inconvenient. And, God help me, thank you, Hernán, for the work that you are doing, there are so many things that are really alternatives. And one of the most important things is that Hernán... Warren, for example, there are so many things that don't exist anymore. I don't know, I don't know if people, I don't know, I don't know if people are more savvy and with the realm of, I don't know, psychology, there are so many people who are doing excellent work but they don't have the strength that the famous pastors have. And the famous pastors are not interesting. It's true, for the world. It's true. Well, thank you very much. I mean, it's... I don't know, I don't know, I don't know. If it's not for the mind, not for the theology. If it's very interesting, what we do in Spain, it's really the aside of us. And also, there are so many things that don't have anything to do with the air in Spain. One of them is the control of the society. If you are in a city where the confectionary is appropriate, if you are publicly, solely, you are not allowed to talk with anyone, you are not allowed to talk with anyone. Nobody is an authoritarian person. Also, I would like to publicate the right, which is an Anglican, I would like to publicate Richard Rourke, who is a Roman post -apocalyptic person, because we are in a conversation about the origins, about the people of the world, and of course, one of the things that comes to mind about their own national or doctrinal space, or their own ideology, which is what I have to say about the land, is that there is no material there. And of course, I don't have to talk with the people of the world that we have to publicate, but we have to publicate the necessity of having a conversation about it. That's a very good question. The question is, why do you have to do something to be able to work on the pen? Why do you have to do something that no one wants to do? do I can the work of my sociopaths, I can do the work of my time. But to be able to do these things, I don't have to talk about the pen, no? Well, of course, but we hope that it will be more. Yes, yes, more, more, more, more. For this year, it's three. It's three. One, I would like to say, the day that I was born here, in Gueses, the day that I was born, in Gueses, I think it was in the academic collection, and it was a dictionary of the same words about the sexuality of Renato Linz. So, in Spanish, as in English, the same words about the sexuality that in the book define a dictionary. These are the words that are in this year. We'll talk about some of them later. How do you like the books? Ah, well, I've had a lot of conversations. I've always thought that the first function of the book is pastoral. The first book that I published, I didn't know it was central to Marko's book. And as I started to ask some questions about the pathetism of the dead, or about the substitution of pen, including with gala, the book that's written in gala, for the first public book that I read, that came out of the space, was very evangelical and very fundamentalist. It was a book that allowed me to exchange a cost for the middle class. We had a book for the last 20 years of the reform, that was made in the core areas, where we participated in different South American parties. There was nothing in Latin America, without nothing, except for the five souls. There were many books that were promoting the reform, but nobody was talking about the five souls. So there was a distinct thought, that we would write about one of the souls. There was also the man with a christological name, a non -Christological name, and we said to the public, this is what I want to say, this is what I want to talk about, and for me, it was a book that had more rights than what we have known for a long time. And think I it's like... The perception? One of the ones in the middle, no? Like Pivote, or one of my ideas, or the other one. What is the meaning of the Christianism? And the friend of mine, I think, that he needed to take care of his behavioral level, for the sake of Chile, in some way, and to support the institutional revolution. It was the first four years, when one of the religions came out here to do something more. And they gave us two letters, two letters and some were written in the name, to what was the third letter. The first, Patrick, is very local, he doesn't have a lot of sense in Latin America. The third one was written all over the world. It's not a bomb, in the name of the reform of sexuality. We had some corridors, but not in the same world all over the world. And the most successful was with the we had to go there, and with this letter we had a lot of sense. It was a very difficult problem. A lot of problems. What? In the end. And this letter was, as I said, when one wrote it, the last letter. Yes, it was a letter from when one wrote it. From when one wrote it. Not too much, but it was written by the people of the city. Fair. But it didn't exist properly. Well, the first letter was written by Richard Rohr, because if it was written by Richard Rohr, we couldn't have written it in the editorial. It's the event, event, event, event, that is universal. Fair. All of them were succeeded by Richard Rohr. We wrote a book, that has been written for 30 copies. In two years. And how did you write it with him? With his book? With Nadiya? No, with his book. The book at the moment of Jesus. Well, the first letter, thank you, was given a nomination to David Cameron Cyrus, and we were at a scene of the recognition of S .E. Sanchez, who was also at the New York Public Library. And it was this invitation, because there was a Congress of Vibilistas, there was a section of the book, and it was written, it was, well, thank you, thank you, thank you, but S .E. Sanchez, Robert, Vibilistas, Vibilistas, and we decided, and we told them, as two years ago, to do it, so we decided to do it, and they asked us to publish this book, that they wanted to show us, and they said that it was written in a book that was always written and they told us that they wanted to publish it. So they told us, they didn't know what it was, they told us, they told us a copy of the book that they wrote, and we proposed that there would be a book that would be that you wouldn't be able to read, and they told us, so they wrote the number, as well. So that's what happened with the book, it was a good one. We'll see. So, and it was a very interesting conversation, it was, It was. It was. I am trying to read the book that will be released in the future, in a book I can't read. In the future, dude! No, but, but in theory, it's really interesting that they told us, and thank you for all the support and for allowing me to do it, I had no idea how much they would allow me to do it, and I was like I can't read it, but But thank you for maintaining yourself and for continuing, Hernan. I want to thank you for the invitation and the desire to receive a message that, in the conviction of the Corazón, the truth is that if others have access to the land, there will be a difference in life. And for that, we thank you very much. So, how do we start? I thought you said you were going to be terminated. No, no. It's only in vocation for the conversation that, as I said, it's my pleasure to talk to you in our conversation, so that people can know the best and know what is important. That is what is important.

I was watching the other day I'm actually not a huge Martin Luther King fan or whatever super flawed guy But I was watching the last the audio was listening the audio of the last speech that he gave the night before he was killed April 3rd, 1968. He was killed the next afternoon And he gave this speech and he had just been like cheating with a bunch of different women. Okay. Yeah He had a tendency. Oh my gosh. No, he was like a ridiculous out of control But he gave this speech in which he clearly predicted his own death Like there's no doubt if you listen to this that God is speaking through Martin Luther King and I and I get I don't like Martin Luther King's program. I don't like his behaviors a lot of You know worshipping Martin Luther King is absurd to me, but I gotta say if you listen to that speech God is speaking through Martin Luther King. There's no other explanation for that and you're like, well, that's kind of consistent with what we know We're all flawed the people in charge tend to be more flawed But it doesn't mean that they're not capable of greatness So let's just be honest about it The second you have to feel the need to pretend that you're perfect you become a liar and you become paradoxically even less perfect Become a member members dot Charlie Kirk calm buckle up everybody here we go Charlie what you've done is incredible here Maybe Charlie Kirk is on the college campuses. I want you to know we are lucky to have Charlie Kirk Charlie Kirk's run in the White House folks. I Want to thank Charlie's an incredible guy his spirit his love of this country He's done an amazing job building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created Turning Point USA Embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries destroyed lives and we are gonna fight for freedom on campuses across the country That's why we are here Brought to you by the loan experts. I trust Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific mortgage at Andrew and Todd come One of the things I don't like is how these this primary is Ruining some people's friendships. I'm not gonna let that happen people know where my loyalties personally lie and I Got to tell you there's there's some really great people that are advocating in different camps We need to keep those bonds strong for those buying strong for just no other reasons and it's the right thing to do Great American and one of the sharpest minds in the movement Dave Rubin joins us Dave. Welcome to the program Dave How's this primary treating you? I'm sure that it's it's been uplifting fun You know, and I'm sure you just want it to go on for another two years Well first off early I want to say that no matter what happens in this crazy circus that we are all endlessly sucked into and cannot get out of the orbit of You and I were friends before all of this and I will be friends after this even if temporarily We're on I don't even want to say opposite side It seems that we're both I would say in different camps or but we're on Team America Dave We're just wearing different jerseys in the primary Is that fair to say that is fair to say and that's also why and I think you were kind of getting to this in That intro there. That's why it's been so disappointing to see the level of Craziness, I would say coming far more out of one side than another which is defending itself for the most part Because I've really really been trying it and for the people for your listeners and viewers that watch my show I have really been trying to stay above the fray to the best of my ability I am not perfect at it. Just like you are not perfect at it and and often politics brings out the worst in all of us But I think the best we can do right now is fight for the things we believe in and the people that you think And accomplish those things at a political and cultural level. That's what I'm doing that's what you're doing and and that's what many other people are doing and and hopefully if you do it with a Degree of honesty and integrity. I think you'll survive either way and I think a lot of people are kind of putting that aside And Dave we've done a lot of fun stuff together and we're gonna keep on doing it I mean we went to UC Berkeley together and you had your briefcase robbed from you in the early days of San Francisco Well, you didn't tell me I couldn't leave a bag in a car outside of Morton's That's right. It was in it was in a security car outside Morton's near the Transamerica building and Dave lost everything So Dave, I want to actually give our audience a fair opportunity here and this is not a gotcha in any way Just make the case for Governor DeSantis is policy agenda how you think the campaign is going Obviously, we've been you know voicing my personal opinions on President Trump's agenda what he's doing I want our audience to be able to hear all sides of it. You know, you're a very articulate I could say spokesperson for I don't not officially but obviously advocate Kind of make the case especially to our conservative audience. And then secondly, how do you think his campaign is currently going? Well, first off just to be clear I'm not a spokesperson I am not paid for you know By the campaign or anything like that. I would not even if they offered me money. I wouldn't I'm doing what I think is Right. I tell people what I think for a living and my life Literally my life and the life of my family and my employees who are in this room and them who work remotely But many of them who live in Florida and the two companies that I moved to Florida is all enriched by the things that Ron DeSantis has done here in the great state of Florida. I left I don't know that anyone in the entire country left California fled California more publicly than I did about a year and a half ago to move to the free state of Florida I would say and I'd love to hear your thoughts on this if you are a I would say right leaning person meaning you are Let's say a disaffected liberal or you're a traditional You know religious conservative or you're a libertarian something in that or you're just I said disaffected liberal But you're just sort of an old -school liberal who's a little confused about what time it is say like an RFK type You in essence should be loving every single thing that Ron DeSantis has done. I don't know one thing that Ron DeSantis Has not done that we would have wanted him to do Florida is safe. Its economy is absolutely booming We fund the police here. We're getting ESG out of our institutions We've done that which that's actually perhaps the biggest issue that people don't talk about that often because it's kind of in the weeds on How corporations are putting wokeness on all of us? I know you talk about it, but the average person doesn't and they certainly don't in corporate America. He has fought Disney He has fought the endless racialization of our children by getting rid of this AP African American Studies course That was in essence going to teach gender theory. We've gotten some of these books that are sexualizing our children out of schools He has done Literally everything that anyone right -leaning could believe in or could possibly want to happen I would say he's done one or two things that are a little bit more like right -leaning then then I will they're perfect for me Dave I got to say I love that stuff No, absolutely. So for example, Charlie, I'll give you one that you agree with DeSantis more than I do Which is the abortion one for me, Florida had Florida had 15 week Abortion ban and I've been to every Republican event in the year and a half since I've been here and I never heard anyone complaining About it DeSantis often said that he personally was pro -life And by the way, it's it's completely within his jurisdiction as the chief executive of the state especially when you win by a freaking crazy 1 .6 million vote landslide 20 % to do what you think is right and he has the Supermajority in the state Senate to make that happen. So he switched it six now I think it's possible that will hurt him in the in the general election I think at the primary it probably a little bit works to his favor But but I know he did what he thought was right and that's what he believes At he should use his power to do as the governor So I have a disagree with disagreement with him on that, but I think that's fine But I would ask you what is there anything that Ron DeSantis you're you're at least apart Oh, he's America's greatest governor. I've said that and I and by the way, I just I've said that repeatedly and some people say oh You're anti -de Santis. I said I'm not anti -de Santis. I've said he's America's greatest governor, but let me ask you Dave Is there anything can you what would what would you say would be your biggest my biggest complaint is the last six months? He's allowing consultants and Chamber of Commerce folks to run his campaign. He doesn't sound like the Ron DeSantis of last year I'll just be very honest. So so give so we can talk about the Ukraine give me like a specific example The Ukraine language, right? So the Ukraine language he was kind of dilly -dallying and flip -flopping on that at first. He was great His instinct was territorial dispute. Then he's talking about, you know more weapons for Zelensky and all that But honestly, it's also just kind of a vibe and a tone Dave where you know, the base for example I'll give you another example his miss handling of the Trump indictment I said that Ron DeSantis should have went down to Miami done a press conference showed that hey, this is my state Hey Vivek Ramaswami did it he ascended in the polls and now Vivek and DeSantis Vivek is working with Trump and everyone knows hold on a second But you're not gonna win the primary unless you understand Trump has a bait, you know has a built -in 50 to 60 percent But but hold on but if you listen to what DeSantis his words were related to the indictment He said he would not on the first indictment He said he would not extradite him and he's gone out of his way saying he's gonna destroy the very agencies I think has been more that's fair. No his policy fine But let me tell you how the base heard it Dave the base heard this and it might not even be fair I'm just telling you how the base heard it right because remember the base is like a lover scorned They hear one thing from a politician like Paul Ryan or Boehner and Lindsey Graham So they have a heightened sense of distrust and they love Trump and that's not going to change They heard Ron DeSantis go out of his way the first time to say well I don't know really what goes into payoffs to You know play boy. I'm not even saying that's fair That was just a joke and Trump makes silly jokes and sex jokes about everything like that The laws of Trump don't apply to everyone else Dave, you know that we're in this it's a different primary, right? The laws the guy is levitates. He's a once in a 200 -year, you know He says I'm gonna shoot somebody on Fifth Avenue and he goes up in the polls. He attacks He's not a politician at this point. He's something beyond a politician, which I also think there's a certain demagoguery That's somewhat dangerous related to that. But oh, by the way, again, you know, I you know, I voted for Trump I like no, I know No, and I just so that was another thing and then finally I know that I'm a little biased when very biased when Ron DeSantis Didn't show up at our event that bothered me, right? It wasn't some sort of gotcha or trap I think he would have done very well I don't think he would have gotten booed or anything But here's what I would like to see out of DeSantis, you know When we go to a college campus you say hey if you disagree go to the front of the line I want to say I want to see somebody get in the arena and say hey I'm willing to throw out the script. I'm willing to just take any question. I'm willing to kind of just fight It's more kind of total and attitudinal Dave your reaction sure So look if in essence and we'll pick it up after the break if in essence your your point is oh I agree with Virtually all of the policies and nobody has accomplished more than this guy and done everything I want to do But but there's a little bit of a marketing issue here All right, I'll go with you on that and I think that can be dealt with but we'll pick it up on the other side Well, look, I will say this the base the base is very smart and they're constantly Looking in a way of who's gonna betray me next This is the advice I'd get I gave the DeSantis privately and publicly and right now the Rubicon has been crossed where they think DeSantis is gonna betray. I'm not even saying that's fair, but but I'm not saying it's fair. It's honest I mean Trump Trump has done far more to betray the truth and and in a certain way the Respect of the base every time he lies about dissent, right? So when he lies about kovat in Florida who was the best governor for kovat in Florida kovat in the country DeSantis 100 % But who has more who has more in who has done more work and more praise for Paul Ryan Is it Ron DeSantis or Donald Trump for Paul Ryan? I can't I can't either way but at the same time we could talk about getting after the break I can't speak either way. I mean I could show you plenty of videos of I'm gonna tell you this this line of what you're getting at is not persuasive to the base and I'll explain why after the break Because I'm telling you the truth. I'm not trying to persuade anybody Okay, but no lecturing the base is not how you win a primary That's that what you're doing is why he's losing because they want to hear well Not necessarily the little things Trump got wrong. They want to hear a vibe of a fighter that's gonna go crush the unit party in DC Hey everybody Charlie Kirk here every day we heard about another familiar brand selling out their companies and going woke Americans are sick and tired of having left -wing propaganda jammed into every product they consume woke mobile companies are no different for years They've been dumping millions in the left -wing causes and we had to take it because you need a cell phone and probably thought there was No alternative.

Go to free activation code with offer code Charlie. That's patriot mobile comm slash Charlie Continue with us is a good friend of mine Dave Rubin We've done a lot of stuff together about the years the Rubin report David. I didn't Dave I did not mean to cut you off. Please finish the argument. Yeah No, it's all good at Charlie really like this is we would do this over drinks I want people to understand that like there is something that transcends politics here Well, let me ask you something because one thing that I've been confused sort of going off what you said right before the break Was that he's sort of that DeSantis has like handed this off to that glass of people or something Do you is it your position that that Ron DeSantis has anything to do with Karl Rove or Paul Ryan? Oh, no I because Donald Trump does that I don't think he does does that repeatedly and that's what all the people but Dave I'll be honest He's acting like he does He's acting like he might as well because he's acting and talking like Karl Rove is running his campaign. No, no, no No, hold on Hold on you do you have any evidence or any reason to believe that Karl Rove or Paul Ryan have anything? No, except for the fact that Fox has been very favorable to DeSantis and Paul Ryan sits on the board But that seems like a reach and and so what I'm not gonna do Dave is I'm not gonna go through every Truth social and go through all that with you know Trump saying But sure we don't have to go through all of that except but it is important I think to some degree because I agree with what you're saying about The base in that in their passion for Donald Trump and why it's important and shouldn't be ignored and by the way When I'm frustrated with some of the the surrogates let's say or some of Trump's behavior lying about Florida and kovat that sort of thing That's that's a direct frustration. It's not a frustration with the people that support him But for example, I mean I have the exact quote right here from DeSantis about a month ago I actually did a little research before I joined you today. This is a direct quote from DeSantis I have not spoken to Paul Ryan since I was elected governor and I've met Karl Rove won I really think it's important that your viewers who are the base understand that because if you listen to any of the surrogates and Donald Trump himself They're implying that he's somehow working with these people and that they are in charge of his campaign and everything else and it's simply not Okay, and I think that that's important. That's important to know but know that that's that's fair. I'm glad I'm glad we cleared that up DeSantis has gotten favorable treatment on Fox and Paul Ryan as a board member there, but let me let me put that aside Let me just say though the type of campaign Trump was on with Brett Baer what two weeks ago? Fair enough. I would say though That was a that was a mostly peaceful interview as we would say But let me let me just put it with the type of campaign I want DeSantis to run is like the vague which is there needs to be a sign of respect towards Trump But I don't feel with this from DeSantis. I'll be very honest DeSantis is a governor Thanks to Donald Trump that primary was not going well for him, right? So he's challenging the alpha beast, right? He's challenging the guy that did kind of Anoint him to win the primary and eventually the general the vague is smart The vague is reading the room that these indictments the amount of criminalization of Trump really Increases people's fervor of the injustice towards him. So DeSantis has a choice Do you run kind of a policy technocratic campaign? which is what he's running and I don't think it's going very well or do you read the room and you realize the base has an attachment to Trump and I'm going to respect that it seems as if it's in some kind of murky middle. I guess my question is Dave How do you think the campaign is going? Right. Well, I would say that first off just quickly on the Vivek things I don't want to spend too much time on that I mean It's fairly obvious to anyone paying attention that that Trump and Vivek are coordinating right Vivek is doing all Endless attacks on DeSantis no attacks on Trump and all of the Trump surrogates online, you know who they are They're always pumping up Vivek because Vivek is going after DeSantis Also, if I was to believe any of the polls and national polls, by the way mean absolutely nothing We're also seven months away from the first primary I mean really think about that like the first primary isn't until January of next year and Everyone's going crazy as if oh my god on any given day. Like the whole world is gonna spin out of control The you would never you would never if you were so confident of your lead you would never spend all day Attacking the number two guys. So that's just a little insider political jockeying However, I will agree with you that in terms of some of the strategy of the rollout They probably should have been more aggressive. I do see that changing. Look DeSantis just went on Russell Brand last week He just went on CNN for the first time last week I think he's doing Megyn Kelly this week if I'm not mistaken and she's been very very critical of him Russell's a lefty. I mean he certainly isn't you know, no one that you would call a traditional conservative by any stretch I would love to see him go on the view sit directly with those women and call out their endless lies about Florida, you know Anna Navarro who lives in Miami who rails against Florida every day He should sit right next to her and call her out so if you want if your question is really do you want to take some of the Anger that the base has because of the way Trump being treated and he's being treated horribly And I completely agree with righteous. I agree. I agree There's probably some way to do that But I would also say to some extent if you just want to view this if you just want to view this in the political lens Maybe this is why Trump should stop lying about DeSantis every which way and you know, he is Everything he says about DeSantis is a lie. Everything he says Dave. I'll be honest It's also a lie when DeSantis goes after Trump and says he was pro Fauci and all that. That's just not true But but and it is what it gave Fauci an award on the way out. We're out of time Dave Rubin. Thanks so much All right, you've probably heard me it's actually now 25 pounds that I have lost and I'm sure some of you say Oh Charlie. I've tried everything.

My PhD weight loss calm Okay, really important discussion we're gonna have here It's a sensitive topic and there's some pending legal challenges around it So we sent out this tweet and it's gone totally viral. So joining us now is Preisha Mosley Who is a D transitioner and attorney Josh Payne who is the attorney for Preisha? And I sent out this tweet both of you by the way, by the way, welcome to the program I said this tweet up Preisha Mosley is a 25 year old North Carolina woman who is suing the doctors who aided her sex change According to Preisha these doctors approved cross -sex hormones and a double mastectomy after consultation as brief as two minutes They also told her taking testosterone shots would allow her to quote grow a penis in Reality Preisha was just a 15 year old batter battling depression anxiety anorexia Her parents fought against her transition, but were steamrolled by enablers posing as medical professionals Preisha and Josh. Welcome to the program I understand there's some legal sensitivities around all this and so Preisha tell us in your own words your story and Why you're pursuing a lawsuit? Um, so my story is that I was a very troubled teenage girl I had a very sudden hard and strong puberty and Basically, my body grew faster than my brain. I Started receiving attention from boys and men who just wanted to touch me And Then at 14, I actually experienced a sexual assault which led to a miscarriage and totally divorced me from womanhood and then at 15, I was online in the pro Anna community and that's a self -harm community where people have anorexia and enable each other and Transgender adults came into the community and started telling us that we couldn't eat because we were born in the wrong body and we were boys and Eventually, you know after hearing an onslaught of this for so long and proof, you know I I ended up believing it and I was desperate for a cure. I was suicidal and had attempted And I just wanted to feel better. So I Was met by medical professionals who said the same exact thing You know you you have a disease you were born in the wrong body, you know you and so on and so forth Um, and I'm bringing a legal case because I've come to realize that I am not a boy I wasn't born in the wrong body. I I was mentally ill I needed therapy I I needed someone to care for me. Um But that's what happened it's a very powerful and by the way courageous testimony that you have Josh You're the attorney for Preisha Josh. Can you fill us in on who Preisha is suing and what is the complaint? basically detailed That's right, Charlie as we allege in the complaint Preisha is seeking justice because she feels that she was deceived and misled into a Medicalized gender transition being placed on what they call cross -sex hormone therapy which in actuality is injecting large amounts of testosterone the male hormone into her female body and also having her healthy breasts removed by a plastic surgeon at age 18 after she was put on the testosterone at age 17 and Doctors and the counselors who were involved in leading her down this path and the the tragedy of it is that It happened and Preisha was left with her mental health issues unresolved Contrary to the promises that were made that these medical interventions would in fact cure her mental health Problems and issues and that they were a treatment for those mental health Issues but as alleged in the complaint that did not happen Preisha was left with her mental health still untreated and unresolved and with additional significant mental and emotional injuries and of course the physical injuries That were brought about by her being on testosterone for years and without her body parts So I just need to editorialize for a second There are thousands if not tens of thousands of other young people that are now walking into the same circumstances that Preisha Was nine years ago.

Dr. G and Mr. Reagan Draw Parallels Between "Dune" and "Star Wars"
"Travel to any part of the universe without moving. That is the emperor's daughter. She her diary at a kind of diary or letters performs a similar device in the original book at the beginning of each chapter trying to explain exposition what's going on thousands, tens of thousands of years in the future, which is the June universe. Let's put the original book up published in 19 65. It was a series of books by Frank Herbert 6 of them, then his son, with a co author took over after his passing, and we've got some photographs of the great Frank Herbert, who was on set and who was happy with lynch's production, then his son, authored another 16 novels based upon dune and massively massively successful. Chris, one of the problems with doing this and that's why the remake has split the original book into two parts, two different movies, is just the amount of information, you know, if you're doing science fiction, you have to do what is called world building. And here, there was a lot of world or universes to build, right? Oh yeah, George Lucas had a lot to steal from in this in this world. Arrakis is very obviously has been turned into tatooine. I have a list here that I've written. It has twin moons, even. They even stole the twin mates. A desert planet with twin moons, right? Then there's the spice, the spice doesn't feature heavily in Star Wars, but they do talk about the spice mines of kessel, I think. Telepathy with using the four, the Jedi mind trick is something that's featured heavily in this. Although they use their voice, obviously. There's like a voice trick. They say in this film, may the hand of God be with you, right? And then, of course, in Star Wars, may the fourth be with you. The sand worms became the sarlacc and Star Wars. Evil empire. I mean, there's just so many things. And then, of course, there are a couple of things, as I mentioned before, that Star Wars, I think, did better with harkonnen being disgusting and Vader being cool, voice guns being a little silly, lightsabers being cool.
Sebastian and Chris Kohls Review David Lynch’s “Dune”
"Just say this about dune. I did not expect it to be good at all. I was dreading watching this film. 'cause you never seen it, right? I'd never seen it. I have seen the first half of the new film. The remake that's split the story into two halves, right. And I fell asleep like 6 times watching it. It was terrible. And I thought, oh God, I got to sit through this again, right? So I watched this one, and I do have to say, it's a lot better than the new one. And there are like these little hints of genius throughout the film. I have to say, there are moments of genius in this movie. And I can see why some people love it and why some people hate it. And maybe through the course of the hour, we can figure out why some people love it. Some people hate it. The reason I think maybe a lot of people hate it is because those moments of genius are fairly inconsistent. Do you have moments of genius and then you have moments of kind of tacky, weird stuff, and the thing that I want to compare it to a Star Wars. Because Star Wars very obviously ripped this story off from the novels, right? This is a novel originally. And I think for film, Star Wars did it better. Star Wars everything was very real and naturalistic George Lucas tried to make everything as realistic as possible. Whereas dune kind of feels like I'm going to see a Broadway show a little bit. Interesting. All right, look, this is where this is where it gets really fun because I watched this as a kid. I was 13 years old. I think it has been unduly maligned. Yes, there are issues with it, all the exposition, the voice-over stuff. I get it. But some aspects of it, I mean, the battle sequence. They had some battle sequences where they had 3000 people in the Mexican desert. I mean, just stunning. Is that true? Yeah. They had 6 Chris, they had 6000 costumes built by hand. 6 thousand costumes made for some of those costumes are amazing. Oh, my gosh. I mean, just the still Suits alone
Dr. Steve Turley Has Had So Much Success With PHD Weight Loss!
"Somewhat disappointed with my team. I asked to bring back a good friend of the show and clearly he's too busy. He can't make it, and they sent me his younger brother. Doctor Steve turley, where are you and who is this person that is half of the man I know? Yeah. Younger and slimmer. And I think I'm talking to doctor Seb's younger and slimmer brother as well. I do tell our listeners who don't know the backstory of her. Recently. I got to give a shout out. Absolutely. So I was on your show, what was it? Like 6 months ago, 7 months ago. And you were doing a plug for this amazing company called PhD weight loss doctor Ashley Lucas. And I think at the time it lost about 40 pounds, 30 or 42 pounds. My wife lost 36. And yeah, and some other yet a producer. I think he is. No, I had a colleague. My Gallagher, who lost 50, he beat us all. Now he had more to lose at to begin with. You know, credit to my Gallagher. Credit to Mike Gallagher absolutely, and I listened to that and I said, you know what? I mean, I'm a small guy. I'm 5 5, but I was 220 pounds. And I was like, and you know, my wife and I were talking like, what am I gonna do here? I mean, I can't nothing I'm doing is trying. Nothing I'm trying to work. And I heard I heard the ad that you gave and I said, you know what? I'm giving them a call. This sounds what I really like is the accountability that you have. You get a personal kind of not trainer, but a kind of counselor. You got to you got to check in every week. And it's tough. It's like being back in school and you got to talk to the headmistress. It's like, that's exactly how I felt when I met doctor Ashley. I was like, I feel like I'm going in front of the Chancellor of the university or something, you know. Anyway, here we are 6 months like. How much? How much did you lose? I was so far. I just clocked in at 50 pounds. I'm one 68. Wow, dude, that is amazing. And
Doncic, Irving get 1st tandem win as Mavs rout hapless Spurs
"The Mavericks roll to a one 42 one 16 rather the spurs. The first win for Dallas with Luka Dončić and Kyrie Irving in the same backcourt. Provided 28 points and Irving added 23 as the mav stopped the three game losing streak. Dončić also had ten assists and 7 rebounds before taking a seat for good after three quarters. Mavericks coach Jason Kidd. Anytime you can score a 142 points and Luca doesn't have to play in the four if that's pretty good. Irving scored or assisted on 13 consecutive points early in the fourth quarter as a ten point lead balloon to 25. The spurs extended their team record losing streak to 15 games and have dropped 20 of 21. I'm Dave ferry.
The First Time God Prompted Pastor and Author Lucas Miles
"At a very young age, I felt like the lord called me in a ministry. I was probably 15, 16 years old. After my freshman year of high school and, you know, I think we have time to unpack the story. So I'll tell you, 'cause it's powerful. I was at this youth event. And I'm sitting there with this guy's preaching and thousand kids, one of these things that, you know, a high school thing at a college campus over the summer. And he says, you know what? It was a Wednesday night. He says, I'm going to pray right now that God puts a name on your heart. And when you get home, that you're supposed to call this person and tell them about Jesus. You know, and I mean, I'd never had like God speak to me or, you know, I mean, I was in church, I read the Bible, but I'm sitting there in this girl's name pops in my head. I didn't know her that well. We had a class together. She was very kind of alternative. You know, back then, it was goth was the thing. You know, that's how I would describe her. She was kind of goth. And dressed in all black, the whole deal. And I get home. And I'm 15. I'm still scared of girls. I mean, I'm kind of still scared of girls today, but at that age, especially. And I call her and, you know, didn't have cell phones. It's the rotary house phone type of deal. And I said, hey, I said, I know this is going to seem weird. And I knew she was an atheist. She was very open about being an atheist. I said, I know it's going to seem weird, but I was at this thing and this guy said this and your name popped in my head and I just want to know if there's any I can pray for you about. You know, I stumbled through that somehow. And she just gets quiet. She goes, what day was that? And I can hear like a little bit of a quiver in her voice. And I said, it was Wednesday. She just loses it. And, you know, I don't know what to do. You know, I got somebody the opposite sex on the line crying, and I have no idea how to fix it right now. And I said, I said, what's going on? She goes, what time? And I said, I don't know, there's probably 8 30. And it's just silence. And finally, I go, what's going on? And she goes, we got to call it 8 30, Wednesday night, that my brother killed himself and jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge.
How 'Blade Runner' Fixed Special Effects Errors After 40 Years
"The story of this scene here? The woman you're seeing right now is a stunt woman, okay? And they put a really bad wig on her and you could see it wasn't her face. So for the final cut, they bought the actress back. They bought Joanne Cassidy back 2030 years later. Filmed her face and CGI did back onto the stuntwoman so they could fix it 40 years later and they did the same thing with Harrison Ford when he goes to Ben Hassan's fake snake shop in the original cut. I think you saw the theatrical one through the window, you see his lip movements and the lip movements don't match the sound of the dialog. So I did notice that and I thought it was weird. Right. So her face. I didn't notice her face. So watch the final cut and it's all fixed and you're going, how did they fix Harrison Ford's lips? 40 years later, they brought his son in, who looks like Harrison, did a 360 computer scan and imposed his lips and face onto Harrison and that's how they fixed it. That forget what George Lucas did to Star Wars. George, you're screwed the pooch on that one. This is how you fix it in real movies. All
