Why Sean Feucht Is an Inspiration to Eric Personally
"You have been one of the few people that has been an encouragement to me personally, because a lot of people are playing it a little safe. And I thought, you know, I used to be one of those people. But things have gotten so bad that if you don't speak, you're guilty. And that's why I want to warn people, folks, you do not want to be counted guilty. You want to be one of the ones helping and fighting, doing your part. And, you know, what you refer to, Sean, about the people. I mean, there are these books that come out right now that they get sent to our studio in New York. Right. Like, you know, de -churching or like why people aren't going to church and then how we can fix it and what we need to do. And I just laugh. I think if you're talking about what people care about, if you're talking about the things that Sean Foyt is talking about, people will come to your church. If you're somebody like a Jack Hibbs or a Rob McCoy or a Greg Locke or a down, down, down the line, there are churches around the country where they're actually talking about this every Sunday, where they are arming their people to fight for their children's sake in the culture. And by the way, there's a website called my church finder dot org. We've had Neil Mammon on talking about it. If you want to find a good church, tell your pastor to sign up. It's my church finder dot org. This is an amazing tool, my church finder dot org. But if you're not going to a church that is talking about this stuff, my attitude would be like, why go to church? Why go to church that is pretending like, well, it's 1985. We don't believe in the gifts of the Spirit. We don't believe God is alive. We just think it's a nice place to go on Sunday morning before brunch effectively. That seems to be what a lot of people think of his church. And I'm here to tell you, sorry, folks, that's not the church. That's the devil's church. I'm sorry to to tell you the bad news, but that kind of dead religiosity that is perfect. The devil says, you know what, go to a church like that, because the Germans who went to those churches in the 1930s enabled me to use the Nazi Party to unleash satanic evil and to murder millions.

She's 31 years old. And let me tell you what, she's on a mission to be one of the world's top female bare knuckle fighters. And listen, she has her eye on the title. And you know what? Something that I love about Sydney is that she is a true spiritual warrior and she carries her faith and her father's memory with her everywhere she goes and into the ring. Sydney Sundance Smith, welcome to Evangelism on Fire podcast. How are you doing? I'm blessed and highly favored. Yeah, I'm doing well. I feel really good. You know, I'm in a really good place in my life, so. That's awesome. I'm so happy for you. So you know what? So my audience, Evangelism on Fire Nation, so they know more about you. I gave you a little introduction, but tell us more about who you are. Oh, wow. I feel like that's such a big question, right? Like the, what does Shrek say? Like an ogre, I have like an onion, I have ears. Yeah, I don't know, man. I'm just like a kid from the middle of nowhere. I grew up on a horse farm. All three of us, my brother and my sister and myself, we were all born at home. We were not born in a hospital. Oh, you were born at home? Not a hospital, at home. Oh, wow. And so for my sister's birth, my dad actually had to deliver her because the midwife was somewhere else. And so she didn't get there. Oh, wow. So my dad had to deliver my sister. That is wild. What was going on with the midwife? It starts wild. She was delivering another baby like across the county. Right. Wow, that's such a cool story to start this podcast off. Hey, it's interesting from starting to talking with that. You know what I'm saying? But yeah, I mean, I don't know. I just grew up out like in the middle of nowhere in a place called Middlebrook. Doesn't even have enough people to be considered a town and still considered a village to this day. When I first heard about you, I was when I was training at Mixed Martial Arts Institute here in Richmond, Virginia. And I would hear your name mentioned, you know, in my training sessions. Then I got to be good friends with Gigi, who she owned MMA Institute around the area that she lived. In Charlottesville, yeah. Yeah, for a little bit. And through Rick McCoy and Tyus Thomas and David Gladfelter, I got to know more about you because I would just hear your name around, you know, the Institute. So let's get right into it. How did you come to faith in Jesus Christ? So I actually, I grew up in it. I just kind of always believed he was there, that he was and that his son existed. And I didn't really know too much about the Holy Spirit growing up. That wasn't really something, it's not really something that Presbyterians talk about a lot, you know. And so, yeah, I mean, I had a relationship with him for, you know, most of my life, but it really didn't, it was like, you know, like the shockwave kind of hit more when I was like 16, 17. And I was really starting to go through like some really serious suicide and depression. And I got really, you know, just really into the word. And, you know, my mom bought me a study Bible on Easter, the year I turned 17. And I still have it, I still use it every day. And so that really just kind of, cause I just have this insatiable appetite just like to know things. I don't know why I just do. And so, yeah, so giving me a study Bible was a great way. And I just never looked back, you know. And that's, I mean, I've had my ups and downs, right? You know what I mean? I'm not saying, I've walked a perfect path since I was a teenager that is far from true. But, you know, it doesn't mean that I've ever stopped believing in God or loving God or talking to God. You know, I think that I just kind of have this different understanding of who he is and like what he wants to do. Like he's never gonna give up on you, you know? And I think that's something that's really important and not something that I really want to get out there is that I'm not saying go out there and do all these bad things. We shouldn't sin much so that grace can abound much. But what I'm saying is that like, grace covers a multitude of sins. That's what I'm saying. And there's no shame, no condemnation for those that are made new in Christ. And that's what I'm trying to come and talk about is there's a way, we've kind of gotten to this point as a society where if anybody starts saying like, thus sayeth the Lord, or you quote the word in a way that people know that you're quoting the word to them, they just shut down, right? And so I don't know, I just feel like God has written it on my heart in a way that, you know, I just talk about it. I'm not trying to shove it down your throat. I'm not trying to like preach at you, but I just, I feel like God is so enmeshed in everything and every single moment of every single day that I mean, his word is just one more example of that. And speaking it is very powerful and that's something I learned along the way. And so to speak it, you have to know the word. Say that again, Sydney, maybe that one more time. To speak the word, you have to know the word. So yeah, you know, write it on your heart. Yeah, to speak the word, you have to know the word, you know, and I've read some articles about you that you are in the word daily. Yeah, I love that. I love that. Every day. In my study Bible, Josephus, you know, I've got like the concordance, the Hebrew and the Greeks dictionaries. Like I really do, like, I truly go through it all, all the time. I just love it, you know. I think it's really interesting. And I think that when you study the different translations, not that anyone is better or worse than any of the others, but I think that, you know, they all have something to offer. And, you know, that goes for like the Hebrew and the Greek too, because their vocab, like, I don't know how to explain it, but their vocabulary was richer. It was like more dense than ours is. I feel like the words that they chose to communicate what was going on or how they were feeling or what God was saying were chosen for specific reasons. They did a lot of like play on words with, you know, like was it Adam and I can't remember the other one, like that that's similar to his name, but it's like Adan or whatever, you know. And like, so one means Adam and one means something that's like completely opposite and bad that he did or whatever, you know. Hey, you know what, if someone's listening right now, right, so this is mostly a Christian podcast, but a lot of those listeners out there right now, they're not reading the word daily, say like you are or I am. What encouragement would you give to them to pick up the best -selling book of all time, the Bible, right, and get in the word and, you know, taste that a little bit every day. What would you, what encouragement would you give to them? I mean, what do you have to lose, right? Like there's so many places in the Bible where it talks about how we should meditate on God's word. And that's not just sitting there and being like, oh, you know, I'm thinking about your word. But the Hebrew and the Greek actually means to like speak on the utterance, to talk to yourself about it. And honestly, you know, you shouldn't look at it as a chore. I know for a long time, you know, it's not like I've read my Bible every single day for my entire life, right? Like we all go through stages and phases and seasons, but, you know, habits are what you consistently do. So, you know, it's gonna take time to get to that point where, you know, you make it, it's just part of what you do every day. You have your coffee and you sit down and you spend time with God first thing, you know, that's kind of like what I like to do. Just pick a time that works for you. It doesn't have to be like, oh, I'm spending 45 minutes, you know, just literally anything is better than nothing, right? Like God just wants you to say, hey, you're important to me and I'm taking this time out of my day to just spend this time with you. Set yourself up to like read five verses or read a chapter a day or, you know, start with small bits. But I mean, honestly, try not to look at it as a chore. I mean, you're meeting with the creator of the universe and magnificent things happen. Ah, come on. I mean, you know, Jesus is the word, right? Yeah. So, I mean, if you shun the word, you're kind of like shunning Jesus in a way. And he came to give us life more abundantly. So how can you have abundant life if you kind of like refuse the one who's trying to give it to you? Wow, that is, that's deep. That's profound. That is so good. That's the Holy Spirit now. That's the Holy Spirit. Speaking in and through you. Just do the talking. Cause I ramble. People know that. I'll talk forever, especially when it's about God. So I was like, God, please just let the Holy Spirit. Isn't it cool when the Holy Spirit speaks in you and through you and you hear what you just say and you're like, wow, thank you, Holy Spirit. That was totally you. Yeah, that was not me. You're like, whoa, that was good. Yeah, that was fire. That was fire, straight fire. Yeah, I was praying for like tongues of fire to be dropping on people in Albuquerque and stuff. Like it would be so heavy in the arena. Like I pray for that kind of stuff. Like to me, when I walked into church on Sunday, cause I've been doing like a really in -depth study on Joshua. I actually did a pretty in -depth study on judges. And then I went back and did Joshua cause God was like, go read Joshua. And I was like, all right, cool. So that's what I did. And you know, so I walked into church on Sunday and I just, I felt God say, take your shoes off. This is Holy ground, you know? And that was what I prayed over the ring the last time I fought in May, cause they let you go out and check the ring out. And so like, I prayed in the spirit and, you know, people call that speaking in tongues. To me, I call it praying in the spirit. It's personal between me and God. But you know, and I just remember saying like, this is Holy ground. Do you know what I mean? And I like closed the whole circle of it and like, you know, I just, and I pray about it before I go, pray about like his spirit being there, you know, and the Bible says that, that God himself is enthroned on the praises of Israel. And then people want to ask me, like, why do you walk out to Christian rapper, Christian praise music? And I'm like, why wouldn't I, you know, I'm inviting, I'm inviting God to come in and like come into my situation. You know what I mean? And just, and yeah. So to me, it's, it's a lot different, you know? So much of it is spiritually based for me. I mean, even like the hashtag, watch me rise that I use, right? That actually comes from one of my favorite verses in Judges. And it's because it was a woman judge who spoke at Deborah. And you know, I'm always about like the women warriors, like the outcasts that, you know, in society it's like says to be ladylike and they're like, no, I'm going to go fight with the dudes. Like that's who I've always identified with, you know, like Mulan was my favorite Disney movie. Like, yeah. So yeah, I mean, I don't know. I lost her. So, you know what you, you mentioned a moment ago, August. So you have an upcoming fight Albuquerque, right? Just trying to trace that one back, but yeah. But you also mentioned that how you went into the ring and prayed at your last fight. Now your last fight, you beat your opponent. You landed 98 punches to her 26. And you know what I'm like that. Yeah. And you only suffered a few bruises. Tell us about that fight. You know, there was a lot of craziness going into that fight that, you know, I just kind of briefly spoke on and that's pretty much, you know, most of like that's like the gist of what I'll say about it just to like, you know, maintain a modicum of respectability, but basically my corners last minute abandoned me for no good reason. And like one of them wasted a promotion flight and all this stuff, like it was insane. And I'm like at the airport, you know, trying to figure this stuff out. My friend drove down from South Carolina with her mom and her four year old son and like to corner me. And man, it was just wild. Like so many God moments happened. You know what I mean? It was like for every curse, there are two blessings. Like that was, that came true. You know what I mean? Like that was just so evident. And it wasn't just for me. It was for so many other people around me too. Like my friend who came down, she had been, you know, kind of like, you know, a rough state, a stagnant place in her faith with God. And, you know, I guess was feeling some type of way. And when she saw like everything that had happened and how God just like made everything just boom, boom, boom, boom, she was like, look, I told my whole family, there's no way I'll ever question again, if that is real, you know? So literally it was just nothing but God. I was just having a blast. Like I had to put all that stuff out of my mind. I didn't feel any emotion. Like, you know what I mean? I felt some, but I just prayed for protection and peace and to stay on point for what we came there to do. You know, like I had, like I have people who like, I have prayer warriors who literally like that is what we do is we pray over these events. It's not just we're praying over my fight. We're praying over the event as a whole, you know, we're praying over all of the millions of live viewers, you know, that's what we're doing. And it, I mean, hey, I couldn't have, I mean, it was other than, you know, just wanting to push the pace a little bit more. I feel like, you know, it wasn't, it wasn't a bad start to be KFC, you know what I'm saying? And you know what? BKFC, now, one thing I love about you, okay? You're a different breed, okay? You have martial artists, you have your MMA fighters, but tell my audience, maybe some of them don't, they do not know what BKFC is. You're a whole different beast, okay? All right, you're a whole different human beings. So evangelism on fire nation. If you don't know what BKFC is, listen to this. Tell my audience what type of fighter you are, Sydney Sundance Smith. So I started off in MMA, but I was waiting very patiently for them to open my weight class. And when they did, we fight with no gloves, just a little bit of wrap support around your wrist. And you know, I take down some of that. You're talking bare knuckle. Bare knuckles, yeah. Bare knuckles. 100%. She said 100%. Facts, yes. I'm so like, okay, so they're coming up with this new card. It's one in Thailand. It's like the super fight or whatever. And they're letting them do, it's a special rules, bare knuckle Muay Thai. Ooh. I have been bugging the crap out of them. Like, hey, can we get a bare knuckle Muay Thai? And they're like crickets. And then this happens and I'm like, I see y 'all. I see what's happening. Y 'all keep me in mind at 1 .15, I told them, I told all of them, I've told my manager, I've told Dave Felt, I mean, you know, I've told them all. I said, if you start a bare knuckle Muay Thai, don't even ask me any questions, you just sign me up. Sign you up. Every single time you have a fight for me, don't even ask me, don't ask me no questions, just sign me up. Don't do that until the day I cannot fight for. That appeals to me. So how do you go from MMA to bare knuckle fighting? How does that transition happen? Very carefully, I guess. It's hard not to kick people and knee people. I mean, honestly, I was just waiting for them, like I said, to open my weight class. It's been around for five years now. So you're a straw weight, correct? Yeah, yes. All right. They had 1 .25 for a while and I, you know, I've been offered a couple of different, different promotional bare knuckle, you know, fights at 1 .25. But I just, you know, I had a lot of medical issues and stuff and, you know, even now healthy, I have to, I have to work to be at like 1 .32 walking around, you know, like a healthy 1 .32. So there's no way I could fight at 1 .25. Those girls cut from like an insane amount and yeah, no. I'm good at 1 .15, you know, like I can make the weight. It doesn't bother me. I make 1 .15, like my body just automatically knows like, oh, it's time to cut weight. And it just does it. Like I really, you know, I just have this really good system and as long as I stick to it, then I really don't have any problems. I cut weight and I feel so strong. It's so weird, but it's just, I've gotten it down to that, down to that point, you know. You know, one thing that I've heard about you, tell me if this is true, but I've heard that you're a fighter who likes to get hit. Oh yeah, oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah, so like, you know, Donald Cerrone, you know, he kind of like a little bit of a slow starter sometimes. He's got to get hit a few times to like kind of wake him up. And then he's just like, you know, like back in the day, that's, that's kind of like me. You know what I mean? It's like, if you don't, if you're not going to exchange with me, it's kind of hard. Like, yeah, I mean, I still fight you, right? But it's not going to be the same level of fight. You know, if you're, if you want to bang with me, you're going to, like, I know people think like, maybe I'm just, you know, exaggerating or whatever, but like, you're going to get a different, a different side of me. Like you're going to bring out something in me that is like, oh, okay, you think that was hard, like my turn. You know what I mean? Like I get to hit you now, right? So I don't know. I just, I love it. I've always loved it. I fought Chelsea McCoy for my first fight, right? Like Rick McCoy's daughter, first ever MMA fight. She hit me so hard, I fought double. I'm not even kidding, right? I didn't know what to do. I had never, like, I was training out of a basement with some, you know, with a guy who had a few amateur fights under his belt. Like, it wasn't like I was Rick McCoy's daughter trained at the MMA Institute, right? I apparently even knew what the MMA Institute was. And I was just like, yeah, I'll fight her. Everybody was like, you're really going to fight her? And I was like, yeah. And then like, I didn't get knocked out or submitted or anything, right? Like we had a good fight, but yeah, she made me see double and I was just kind of like, you know, it was in that moment where it was, it was kind of like, you're either going to do this and you're going to love it. Like, that's going to, that's going to do it for you. You know what I mean? Yeah. Or you're done. You know what I mean? This is not for you. Yeah. And I was just like, I shook my head and I was like, well, then I was like, just pick one, you know? So it kind of solidified that. And you know, so it's not the last time I've seen double in a fight.
A highlight from Chynna Phillips
"Folks, welcome to the Eric Metaxas show, sponsored by Legacy Precious Metals. There's never been a better time to invest in precious metals. Visit Legacy PM investments dot com. That's Legacy PM investments dot com. Hey, you have you checked your bucket list lately? Are you ready to take care of item number seven? Listening to the Eric Metaxas show? Well, welcome. Tune in and then move on to item number eight. Skydiving with Chuck Schumer and AOC here now is Mr. Completed my bucket list at age 12. Eric Metaxas. Hey there, folks. As I hope I promised you previously, we have the joy of a few minutes with Pastor John MacArthur, someone I admire profoundly. He is in a film that I have seen and recommend highly. It's called The Essential Church. Pastor MacArthur, welcome. Thank you. Good to be with you. Well, I have to say that, you know, yours was one of the braver voices in the last few years, and I'm thrilled that somebody tells the story in this film, The Essential Church for my audience. That's not familiar with it. Would you just share the basic storyline of what happened to you and to your church when the covid madness was launched in this country? Well, I think California was one of the most extreme states in trying to handle covid, so they basically said lockdowns, you know, all of that mask distancing and this then hit the churches. They shut the churches down while they left the casinos and the the marijuana places and some of the strip clubs open because they were essential. And it was at the same time that the BLM riots were happening everywhere. And you could you could put your mask aside and go to a riot. But you couldn't go to church. So we we we were hit pretty hard by that. And we thought if there's a real pandemic here and people are going to die, the church needs all the more to be open because you're cutting off a lifeline where spiritual truth is going to be desperately needed for people who think they're liable to die. And some actually will. So what do we do? Well, for the first few weeks, we we just kind of said, well, you know, maybe this is true, maybe we're all we're all going to perish. But after a few weeks, we knew that wasn't the case. So we we decided to open the church. We just opened it with no mask, no, no, no distancing, no nothing. We didn't follow any of the protocols whatsoever. So the state came after us kind of with a vengeance, the county of Los Angeles, the health department, the governor, Newsom, the state to try to shut us down. They threatened to take away our property, our parking lot. They were relentless. They fined me. They were laying out week by week additional prison sentence times. And we decided, look, we've got to react. So we we sued them on the basis of the violation of the First Amendment. And that launched this long, drawn out thing that went on for about a year and a half. They kept postponing and postponing and postponing that. The hearing twelve times, because the judge kept saying, you guys can't deal with the facts of this issue until you climb the mountain of the First Amendment. You've got to deal with the First Amendment. Well, they didn't want to do that. So finally we demanded, OK, we want a trial, no more hearings. We want a trial. And the first thing we're going to do is depose the county supervisors who are in charge of all this and all the health officials. OK, we're going to depose the health officials and we're going to make them tell the truth. Twenty four hours later, they rolled over, gave us everything we wanted, picked up three and a half million dollars of legal fees. They gave us a permanent injunction that the county and the state can never come against Grace Church again in the future. How did we get that? Because we threatened to depose them and make them tell the truth about Covid. And in order to protect themselves from doing that, they forked over. I mean, they wanted to close us instead of that. They gave us a permanent opening and paid three and a half million dollars. You know, part of this, the reason it's so wonderful to hear you tell this story and why I'm glad that this this film exists, folks, is called The Essential Church, is that this lie has crept in to American Christendom, that we're not supposed to fight back. We're not supposed to be political. We're just supposed to roll over and do what the government tells us to do, which is utterly unbiblical. But there are so many in the church that have really imbibed this lie and they privatized their faith and they would say, oh, you know, that's Pastor MacArthur. He's a hothead suing the government. Whoa, he's supposed to be, you know, friendly, making friends with everybody. What do you say? What do you say to folks like that? Well, well, first of all, I've never made friends with everybody, you know, my whole life because I preach the gospel. And the first message of the gospel is you're going to perish and end up in eternal judgment if you don't come to Christ. That's about as offensive a message as you could give. And that's where the gospel starts. But beyond that, we have to I mean, the church is the pillar and ground of the truth. We have to tell the truth. So this is what I can answer your question with one illustration. When we first did that, one of the leading evangelical organizations in the country wrote against us and said, why is MacArthur doing this? This is this is a virus. This this is not where this is not the hill to die on. Wait for the big battle. You know, save your ammunition for the homosexuals when they come after us or whatever it is. And my answer was, look, people said to me, how do you decide which battle to fight? And my answer is we fight every battle. We fight every battle for the truth. For the purity of the church, doesn't matter what it is, it's the it's the little battles that when they accumulate, you end up with a liberal, nonexistent church over time. We fight every battle. We earnestly contend for the faith, and that's right out of the New Testament. I mean, we're told to do that. So it's not that we're angry about it. It's that the church and the truth is, if anything, is worth defending. That's worth defending for the sake of people's eternal souls. And what do you make of the idea that so many in the church missed it? In other words, they did not stand up the way you did or Pastor Che on dead or Jack Hibbs or Rob McCoy. There are a number of folks who understood we need to stand against this, that this is the biblical stand. We need to stand and pay a price if need be. But the majority, it seems to me, in the church did not. And it's it's a shameful moment in the church. And I guess I wonder if some of them are getting it now. They're waking up. Are they repenting of their inaction? What is your sense of how that happened? You know, I think this goes back to the feminization of the culture, and it ends up with the feminization of the church. You just have you have too many weak men, too, too many men who have been influenced by the raison d 'etre of the current zeitgeist. You might say of this culture, that men have been, you know, just emasculated. And that shows up in the church. I mean, you've got you've got weak men and weak leadership, such weak leadership in the church. I mean, look, if you don't think we have weak leadership, look at the president. I mean, that's the best we can do for the entire nation. This is this is talk about not being talk about beta male. I mean, I don't know where that is in the alphabet, but it's far down below that. So there's just a dearth of strong men. You know, the New Testament says, act like men, be strong, be courageous. And it isn't it isn't that you do that to protect your own investment or your own ministry. It's you do that because you're standing for God's truth. It's a much higher it's a transcendent cause, but it takes some courage and conviction. The courage is not something you have to muster. If you love the truth, if you believe the truth with all your heart, you end up defending it. Well, I'm just thrilled to know that you did and that they made a film about it. How can people see the essential church? If you don't have that answer, I can find out and tell folks in the next segment. But perhaps they can go to the the essential church movie dot com. The essential church movie, and it'll list all the theaters all across America, and they can even order tickets there. Yeah. OK, pick their time. The essential church movie dot com. Folks, you need to see this. You need to be inspired. You need to see what actual Christian leadership looks like, because if we don't stand up, God will not hold us guiltless for our cowardice. John MacArthur, thank you for this and everything else. Thank you, Eric. Pleasure. We're doing a campaign for food for the poor. Actually, I take that back. It begins today, Monday, July 31st. People who listen to this program know that we partner with food for the poor. They are total heroes. Food for the poor steps up because there is always there are always hurricanes flooding other natural disasters at this time of year. So because of poverty or collapse infrastructure in a lot of these countries, by the way, in case you didn't know, America is an amazing country. These other countries do not have a lot of infrastructure, so we need to step up those of us who have the ability to step up.

Daughter of Holocaust Survivor Exposes Similarities to Nazi Science
"What? I'm talking to John stranded doctor Simone gold. Remember them? I am so thrilled that I get to continue the conversation with you both. A couple of things I want to cover. First of all, Simone in your talk that you gave at my friend rob McCoy's church in California. You talked about because you're the daughter of someone who survived the Holocaust about how dramatically similar things happened under the Nazis, how they defined science in a very self serving parochial false way. That really happened. And we kind of tend to act like, oh, that's an outlier. That was the Nazis. So talk about that. Right. So you look back in the past and it all just kind of is amorphous and flows together. But then look at the details. If you look at the actual details and you say, are there perilous in the past that you can draw on reference today? So people say, oh, that couldn't happen. Now, but let's see how it all started. The Nazis, of course, we all know they killed Jews, and they killed homosexuals and they killed gypsies. They killed communists. They killed anyone they could, right? Anyone wasn't pure Aryan in there by their definition. But that was the end point. They're starting point. Was a lot of scientists gave them cover to do the violence and the mayhem that they did. There was specifically the Kaiser Wilhelm institute, which was run by a fellow who actually won the Nobel Prize in medicine, a fellow who was not considered anti semitic not considered a particularly political, was just considered to be all about the science. And he came up with all sorts of status documents and data showing what they wanted to show. Jews were a different race, Jews were inferior, the way their skulls and their noses were in the brain, all this stuff, all this they used anthropologists, they used psychologists. They used psychiatrists. They used medical doctors to prove what they wanted to prove, which is that there's a subhuman race and therefore you could kill this race. Okay, so this is based on, I mean, this is the eugenics movement comes out of that. The abortion movement comes out of that. And ultimately, it flows from Darwin, this idea that, you know what? There's no God. And science shows us that some groups are more evolved and superior to others.
"mccoy" Discussed on Longform Podcast
"A quite personal story too. So anyway, here is my conversation with Terry McCoy, thanks again for listening to the series all week. And thanks so much to everyone at the Polk awards. For making it happen. Terry, thanks so much for doing this, man. Hey, thanks for having me, max. Where are we zooming from? Where are you exactly? I am in cloudy rudish narrow right now. In southeast Brazil, we're living the ipanema, so we're along the beach, so it definitely not a hardship posting, but you know, it's exciting nonetheless. You're not allowed to complain about exactly where you are, but man, I would be surprised if you didn't have a few complaints about what it took to do this series that you won the Polk award from. I have to tell you I have so many questions about it. But maybe to start, you can just quickly give me a summary of it and then I'll get into all my questions about your various complaints. Yeah, sure, no, I appreciate max. So the Amazon rainforest is the most important tropical rainforest in the world. And it holds an estimated a 123 billion tons of carbon. And what that means is that if the Amazon goes bust, that's going to destabilize dramatically the climactic balance of the world, any sort of hopes that the world will have of curbing catastrophic warming would be undone. That's bad news because the amazons on the brink. The belief is if about 20 to 25% of the Amazon is lost, that will then unleash sort of destabilizing climactic forces that will claim much of what is remaining. As of now, about 18% of the Amazon has been knocked down. And so scientists warn and believe that and we're already seeing that dramatic change is happening in the forest and signs of extraordinary science and distress, and so it's not just the climactic models that are showing that the amazons on the brink. It's just people's lived experiences in the force, the force today is a hotter, smokier, drier place, and virtually anyone living there can recall. And so the idea was to look at each sort of different system or mechanism that is driving the destruction of the Amazon and do a story about it, whether that is, what is the driving force of deforestation, one of them was beef, you know, this worldwide desire for beef is killing the forest. How is it that we've lost so much forest and people continue to knock it down. So, you know, we looked at like impunity in the Amazon and how it is that people continuously get away with environmental crime. So that is the way I try to think of these stories when I got into it was how are we going to tell a climate story as a true crime story? That's such an interesting way to hear you articulate it because I think when I started reading it, I assumed that it was more traditional climate change reporting. The first story in the series kind of breaks down how the rainforest works ecologically. But pretty quickly it becomes a human story and to hear you describe it as a true crime story, that sounds totally right, which is like, this is not some giant thing that is just happening. It is not related to massive industrial factors that you can't really pin on any certain group of people. It's really personal. Yeah. And so, I mean, ultimately, how the Amazon got to this place is a story of intent. It's not happenstance. It wasn't that the Amazon force unwittingly went down this path. It has come to the brink of existential crisis as a result of intentional policy choices nearsighted policy choices, the Brazilian government put into play with the assistance of international financial groups and with the acquiescence of international diplomatic groups. And unleashed this sort of hobbesian type environment in the Amazon, where anything goes. The Amazon has always been this impenetrable force that people thought was unconquerable. But you know, what the Brazilians did and what the world did along with them was open up the force just enough to be able to get inside it, but not they didn't put enough resources into be able to maintain order. So it became quickly very chaotic terrain and violence erupted as a result of that the absence of the state as a result of a lack of order. And so it becomes a very personal story and becomes a very sort of biblical struggle for land, you know, the animating themes of how many conflicts throughout the human history is happening right now in the Amazon ultimate comes down to blood and land. And that's the Amazon. The way that you are talking about it, the clarity with which you see that biblical struggle, did you have that before you started this series? I mean, you've been the bureau chief in Rio for several years. How much of this was clear to you before you started the reporting and how much did it clarify as a process of the report? None of it was clear. None of it was clear. I mean, the Amazon went first got to Brazil, the Amazon was an arena of mystique, you know? You think about, I didn't even understand that it was beef, you know, cattle ranching that's destroying the forest. But after you spent a fair amount of time in the Amazon, it becomes quite clear what struggle is. And how human that struggle is. People in Brazil oftentimes are afraid of violence, but people are particularly scared of violence in the Amazon because the threat is very real because they know people who have been killed because they have suffered threats themselves because the land that they live on might be a tenuous situation that could ultimately be undone by some sort of bigger boss that wants their land and is threatening them. It's the same themes of what we see in the 1850s in the wild west. This is what it is today. And the same sort of struggles and themes that we saw there between indigenous communities, opportunists, gunslingers, and effective policing, all of that is happening today right now in the Brazilian Amazon. And I wonder how for you walking into this vast sort of biblical story, how did you manage what must have felt like very real risks to you personally? I mean, people are killing each other over this land. They're killing each other over the knowledge of what's happening on this land. What did that feel like for you? How did you get over that? Yeah. You know, I've been reporting on the Amazon and these issues for two years. And it went from belie the ignorance to terror.
Jan. 6 rioter sentenced to more than 7 years for officer assault
"2021 has been sentenced to more than 7 years in prison. 25 year old Patrick McCoy was behind one of the most memorable scenes of the January 6th insurrection. He used a stolen riot shield to crush a police officer in a metal door frame, eliciting screams of pain from officer Michael Hodges, who testified before Congress about the assault several months later. Paris pushed through the line and engaged us in hand to hand combat. The judge found mccaw he guilty of 9 counts, including felony assault, calling him a poster child for all that was dangerous and appalling about the attacks. Officer Hodges also spoke in the sentencing hearing. Calling of

"But Terry and Jerusalem wait, that's what's going to happen tonight, but wait. It'll happen now. Until you're endued with power from on high, empowered due to most power, its scriptures speak of this upon you as overflowing living water, gushing, bubbling, going all over the place. I'll show you. The Holy Spirit is with pericle para, parallel lines. He's with all mankind. Bob says, you believe in your heart confession tongues Jesus lord, you will be saved the glory of the father, you will be a temple of the Holy Spirit. He will be in you. And then the spirit will come upon you. Some of you have that anxiety right now. I have to clean this up. Pray God will deliver you. The idea is, when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, he gets not just on you, but on everything around you. The question I have for you, for those of you who are skeptical of this, though the scriptures speak of it, you are a temple of the Holy Spirit. He dwells in you, but my question for you based on the scripture is, is your life such that you are overflowing with the spirit of God that lives around you or saturated by the living water? And I think we can answer that honestly. There's more God wants to do, and we wait upon him. Max chapter one verse four and being assembled together with them, Christ commanded them, not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait. For the promise of the father, which he said you have heard from me, acts one 8, but you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you. And you shall be witnesses to me in Jerusalem. And in all Judea samaria, and to the end of the earth, we have a Supernatural task ahead of us. And we would desperately cry out for Supernatural power to accomplish that. Now I'm in a mess, we've gone through the scriptures, and we're going to conclude with what we began with. So I say to you, Christ is speaking to you. In speaking to me, but he's speaking to you. This is personal. Listen to his words. So I say to you, ask, is that active? Ask. And it will be given to you. Seek, and you will find knock. And it will be open to you. For everyone who asks, receives, and he who seeks fines and to him who knocks, it will be open. If a son asks for bread for many father among you, will he give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent instead of a fish? Or if he asks for an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children. How much more will your heavenly father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him? I close with this last story, I was invited to go to Claremont college for the dedication of the school of mormonism. And I was a guest of four Mormons. And I was in a car with them. I was in the middle of the back seat, two guys on either side, and two in the front. And we drove from here to Claremont and traffic. So it was a long drive. The low men on the totem pole was proselytizing me the whole way, the other three were like, give it a rest. We've already tried. I was wearing a blazer, no tie, they were all in these beautiful dark suits with ties. We get their late because of traffic was bad. When we walked in, they ushered us to the front where they had seats save for us. The place was packed and one of the apostles of the Mormon church, elder oaks, was speaking that night on religious liberty. I sat in the front row. I listened to him. It was a good message on religious liberty, wasn't super strong, but it was solid. At the end of it, all these Mormons in their suit and tie and beautifully dressed walk forward to meet because it's a big thing in the LDS to meet one of the apostles. Big, huge. And they say elder oaks, he's in his 90s, and he says, elder oaks is not meeting anyone. You can see the disappointment. And then all of a sudden, Matt ball, who runs the western states for LDS. He sees me and he does this. And I turn to Dave Benson, who's a big wig in the LDS. I said Dave Matt's calling you up. He goes, no, he's calling you. Now I knew these guys because they helped me in my run for the assembly. When most evangelicals wouldn't, they did. And so I go me and he goes, yeah, and I start walking up and all of these Mormons in their suits and beautifully dressed are looking at me like, he doesn't even have a tie. It's like Moses parting the Red Sea and I walk up. And this man's in his 90s and he's like, he's like Jim Mather. He's just fit as a fiddle. And I was shocked to find out his age. And he said, I've been longing to meet you, pastor. And I said, well, please forgive me, elder. Before today, I didn't know who you were. Because that's all right. That's all right. I wanted to meet you because I just finished testifying in front of the Mexican legislature. Because their constitution forbids clergy from holding office. And I testified and used you as a case study. Because I was holding office as a council member. And I said, wow, I'm honored because I'm honored to meet you. Joy to meet you. Gave me a firm handshake. And say goodbye and I walk down and everyone's looking at me. You know, seriously, I'm like, yes, I did. Now we get in the car and we're driving back and it's dead silent. And wedged between the two guys. And nobody's talking. And I'm like, fellas, did somebody die? What's going on? You're nonstop talking the way there, and you met one of your souls. I go, yeah, I'm still the same guy that drove here, you know? And then we began to talk and I said, you guys are real ecumenical. You always want to bring the body of Christ together and you want to unify in the city and the people that never join you in your efforts are the evangelical church. And they go, yeah, why is that? I shall tell you the secret. Why? And they're leaning in like, you know? And I said, you guys don't understand justification. You understand sanctification, but you don't understand justification. And they go, what are those terms? I said justification and sanctification. Let me start with sanctification. You guys are really good at that. Sanctification means set apart. As unto the lord. You don't drink smoker chew or hang around with those who do. You're moral people. You don't want anything to compromise your availability to God. Certainly not sin. And they said, yes, I said, let me tell you a story about sanctification. Two stories. One is my wife went away on a women's retreat. I had the young kids with me. We had a dog named tinkerbell. We were dirt poor. We had a plate for her that had Winnie the pooh on it, and we'd always put her dog food on it that we bought from Walmart, or Roy. It's all we could afford. Putin the dog just like, flaming on. And that dog that was the cleanest plate in the house. It would lick that thing just and he always saw Winnie the pooh when she was done. And there was a smear on it. She just licked that thing, carried it around the kitchen, get it in the corner and just go to town on it. My

"You saw the singing and I was on the side of the stage. And I was with the congregation, but I could see the stage, and I was listening to the music and my heart was overwhelmed. I haven't experienced anything like this in quite a while. And it was profound and deep and overwhelming. The last time I'd experienced anything like that was at harvest church in riverside when I was fresh out of college and I had just taken a job with helene Curtis. I was single. And I was attending harvest Christian fellowship, and they said in the Sunday service like Garrett had said on the video, they said, we're going to have an afterglow. Tonight. And I'm like, afterglow, what is that? Because in college I'd been discipled and my Christian foundation was established by a pastor who was a cessationist, which means he believes that many of the gifts died when the apostles died. So I was, I was raised to see that as heretical, I was discipled in the Christian faith to see any of that as heretical. Speaking in tongues and things like that, heretical. It's demonic, seriously. That's how I was raised. But I was attending cavalry chapel harvest and the teaching was versed by verse chapter by chapter book by book. I was growing in my knowledge and love of the scriptures and I was coming alive to it. The word is living and breathing and everything too I should sort no pastor causes the word to come alive. The password may come alive to the word, you may come alive to the word, but the word is already living. A work of antiquity, unlike Homer, the Iliad, where the author of those works is dead. The author of this one is alive. He's in me right now. He's in those who call upon the name of lord. He's inhabiting your praises right now. That's Jesus. And his word is as fresh today as it was when it was written. It's not like it's antiquated. And every time I'm in the word, it's speaking to something I'm dealing with for that day that week, that month. And if you have an experience just because you're not reading, it is such a profound gift that is alive and ministers. It's the only book in the world you don't read it at read you. It's powerful. As I'm at harvest Christian fellowship, and they speak of this afterglow. I was sitting next to this girl that I thought was really cute. It wasn't Michelle. Thank God I'm married to Michelle because this didn't work out. And she was really cute and she says, let's go to the afterglow. And I wasn't my heart wasn't in tune to pursue the lord. It was in tune to pursue her. I'm like, all right, yeah, we'll go sure. I'll go with you. And the guy named alwyn wall was leading the worship. And he brought us to a corporate place of worship where we were singing the songs without instruments. And it was precious and there's just something sweet about it. I was moved by. I was like, wow, this is kind of cool. And then there's just a soft humming and a singing. And he says, now we're going to wait upon the lord. And I'm like, wow, wait upon the lord, which is, you see this in chapter one, where Terry, in Jerusalem, weighed upon me until I fulfilled the promise that I said of the Holy Spirit. And I knew of that, but I was real skeptical, and I'm just quiet and I'm sitting there and she's next to me. And I'm in the front left of this small sanctuary. And on the right, and in the front, someone starts seeing this melodic tune and they're singing in an unknown tongue to me. I'd never heard it. And I grab her hand, I'm like, we're out of here. This is heretical and demonic. I didn't say that to her, but I'm like, I'm going to go, let's go. And she goes, I want to stay. Well, my heart was in tune here. So I'm like, all right, and I'm uncomfortable. And finally, I just said, you know, Lauren? If you got something here that I don't get, show me. And I just calmed and quieted my soul, and I just stayed silent before the lord. I waited on him. And sure enough, and I'm only experiences three times in over 30 years of ministry. In the front, right in front of me, a woman starts singing the same melodic tune which was hard to mimic and start singing in English, language I understood, and I also know too that I've heard people speak in a tongue and they interpret themselves and it's condemnation. Pastors need to repent and I know immediately because the Bible says that when you're speaking in a tongue, it sums him and spiritual praise is making melody into the lord. It's not. He doesn't speak to man. It's man speaking to God. And this woman starts singing and the interpretation of it is in line with scripture and it was so profound, I was overcome where it says it edifies the body. I was blown away. It was one of the most profound moves of God spirit on my life I've ever experienced. And in the course of it, I've seen it mimicked and counterfeited, but in that instance, it was so real and I've seen it two other times since then. And it's the least of the gifts. And I remember, at that moment, saying God, if you can do this, would you and I found myself with my hands like this. God, would you give me an accordance with your word? Would you give me an outpouring of your spirit with you you say we have not because we asked it? I'm asking for the gift of preaching and teaching. Now I had gotten a C minus in public speaking. At a community college, I swear profusely, my voice would warble and shake my hands. I was terrible. And all I can tell you is, and you can think, well, it didn't really manifest
Dr. James Lindsay on Genesis and the Blurring of Distinctions
"You to reflect upon what Charlie just said about what trans boils down to what the queer theory ideology boils down to. And then I want you to realize that the first manipulation of language that's recorded in genesis three is in fact this blurring of distinction. By the way, did you know eve? You're just like God. There's no real distinction between you and God. And that's literally what we're dealing with. This is why for over two years, I've been sitting on stages not a Christian and saying we are in the same fight as in genesis three. The same story as genesis three. And we have the same risk, but what happens just to pull out of that and not execute too long? To come back to talk about this German historicism, what they actually did was the imported from a character a little further back in time Plato. Way earlier, what he called science. In fact, CNT. It's the for Plato, who was a tyrant, had, in his ideal republic, which was a technocratic tyranny with the philosopher kings sitting on top and their pretorian guard below to protect and then the bronze class workers doing everything in the poor white ploy making their miserable way as mud people or whatever. This technocratic republic had two levels of understanding what he called CMT was broken into two pieces, a piece of May, which is the reason that he believed that the philosopher kings had access to, that is the correct science of politics to impose upon everything else and below that dianoia, Diana was what we would call understanding and that's what informs technique, which is the ability to do technical work or understand things. This gets imported straight into German through this new age movement in all of these goofy historicists and gets codified by Hegel who renames episteme in German to hide the fact that he's just stealing somebody else's work and calls it for nymph, which means reason. And then he calls a lower level of understanding, which is actually understanding the world we live in, understanding the distinctions of the world we live in, first stand. And for has to rule over for stand. This comes to Marx and he says we have this scientific word. Scientific socialism, a vision shaft, leisure, socialism. And so the socialist science is now going to dictate exactly how we're going to turn the real science and understanding of the world.
How Do You Know What Is Good, Is Good?
"Know what is good is good? I asked that question all the time a college kids. They say, well, it's just common sense. Do you know that we are all recipients of a Christian inheritance? We are all recipients of a Christian inheritance. I'll name three things that are not common sense values in the rest of the world. That children should not be taken advantage of. That is not common sense. That is a Christian value. How about that power should not be centralized in one person and should be separate with checks and balances. How about that we should look after the poor as if they're just as important as we are. I could go on and on and on. These are Christian inheritances that the rest of the world does not necessarily honor. What is the point I'll just, I mean, I could keep on going on this, but the point is this, if we don't honor our inheritance, and if we as Christians and believers, just kind of look from the sidelines and keep on giving these little cheap one liners like, oh, I only preach the gospel here. I don't get into controversial stuff. You're a waste of time. You should resign from the ministry.
Dr. James Lindsay: 'We Need Discernment'
"Say we need discernment, when you need to cut through that the way they use doubled meanings and language like democracy, right? When I say this, what I'm saying is that we have to, if we want to understand reality wound and navigate reality, what we have to do is understand enough of how they manipulate our descriptions of reality so that we can understand the actual distinctions, draw those distinctions into clarity, which everybody can see with their eyes and their ears. Everybody can understand them without a layer of theory and gobbledygook obscuring that and bring them back to reality and that's how we're actually going to claw our way out of the greatest threat to civilization that we've ever faced. And if you don't know it, that's where we are. Wow.

Because it's such a big thing. Not that we're advocating eating elephants, by the way, just have to throw that in to make sure we not. Yeah, the metaphor for those on whom it might be lost, which probably is no one, is when you want to tackle something big. And it kind of goes back to being versus doing what a single bid at a time. So I used to tell young layers who had writer's block, they were writing briefs and I would tell them, if you're stuck, don't start at the beginning.

To Be Made in the Image of God Is a Powerful Thing
"Made of the image of God, you think about how powerful that is, and if you also just want a little early hat tip to the Trinity, it says in the original biblical Hebrew, let us make man in the image of God. In our image, yes. And you think about that, it's interesting because if you read the rabbi commentaries, they don't really know what to make of that. So there's all this kind of folklore. They say, oh, it's God talking to the angels or God talking to the animals. We have a very clear answer. It's the Trinity. And it's kind of a foreshadowing of the fulfillment of this idea of the Trinity. And but the thing that how God created was through rational speech and through speaking things into existence, he just said it. And also understanding that when the first 5 books of Moses were written, it was written when the world was largely pagan. The idea of a monotheistic God that just spoke things and they happened was in unconscionable concept at the time. It was all these polytheistic gods, the God of the sun, the God of the mood, the God of the river, the God of the flowers, the God of the and this idea that there's one God and omniscient on the present and is able to speak things into existence. It was a foreign concept. It was hard to wrap your head around. And it wasn't until the Greeks that they realized that man is significant over all other creation or even creation itself over all other distinctive animals. And so they started to celebrate man as being distinct and special. And that's where we get the original language of the scriptures. So because that's the language of the greatest philosophical thinkers of all time, Socrates, Plato, Aristotle. This is fascinating today.
The Founding Fathers Reference Deuteronomy More Than Any Other Book
"Been pouring over what I think far too many pastors do not teach, which is genesis exodus leviticus numbers and deuteronomy, which if you look at the founding fathers, the founding fathers side of the book of deuteronomy more than any other source in writing the Declaration of Independence, the federalist papers and the constitution. And so did Jesus. He quoted deuteronomy more than any other book. The end Jesus, when Jesus was alive and it's still the same day, the most holy thing a Jew can do is to study the Torah. So our lord and savior, God in flesh, loved the first 5 books of the Bible. And yet so many pastors across the country, intentionally avoid it, and tell us that the first 5 books of the Bible are irrelevant. Andy Stanley, who's a pastor in Georgia, says that we should not, we shouldn't take seriously the first 5 books of the Bible that genesis leviticus deuteronomy are irrelevant. And not worthy of study or appreciation. And so as we try to look at this time of chaos and confusion, which is widespread in our nation, I find it so comforting personally to go back to that these are eternal fights that these are fights that predate us and they're going to be here long past us, but the order that can be restored is very clear, which is to establish the distinctions and to protect them, but it takes courage to do so.
Without a Biblical Construct, The World Does Not Know 'Common Sense'
"Across an author by the name of Tom Holland, who's actually a secular writer, but he's very fair. And he makes an argument looking at history very honestly that what we consider to be common sense in the west is anything but common sense, right? So I could list off 5 things and someone in secular society would say, oh yeah, every society understands that. For example, not touching children are taking advantage of them, giving money and charity to the poor, natural rights, the fact that the strong should protect the weak, I could go through one after the other. And the argument he makes is that in the west, we are actually inheritors of a Christian inheritance that without a biblical construct, the world does not know these things as quote unquote common sense. And you don't need any more evidence than what you see happening in the underdeveloped world or in the Islamic world or in the hyper secular world, if you do not have codes or customs that are put in place, it is almost the norm to take advantage of children. Look at happening America right now, where they're going after children with this incredibly insidious transgender ideology with medical mutilation or the chemical castration of children, the idea that children should be protected by adults is a uniquely Christian idea. And no one really has the courage to say that out loud. But going back even further, what I said previously and understanding that, it's if you want to know what the left is trying to achieve, they're trying to obliterate many of the distinctions that are laid out in the first 11 books of genesis.
Maybe This Is Not a Good Idea...
"The American ruling class ever say, hold on, maybe this is not a good idea. And no, because if you know anything about how the American ruling class operates is that they operate with hyper aggression, never apologizing or admitting a failure ever. And it's always your fault. Always your fault. It's the middle Americans fall. It's your fault that your jobs got shopped shipped overseas to China. It's your fault that you didn't take the vaccine. It's your, it's always the American people's fault. And so I took a step back and I don't trust the people in charge, nor should you after the last couple of years. And I certainly don't trust the very same American foreign policy establishment that was unable to have success in Libya in Syria in Iraq in Afghanistan in every theater they engage in themselves. And in fact, I think they're getting us closer to a state of permanent conflict with, again, let me repeat this. Putin is not a good person. I don't think highly of him. I think that he should be condemned for his actions. But sometimes in geopolitics, you have to be willing to have temporary partnerships against the greater evil. And the greater evil is not a little bit it's by far the CCP's conquest of the western world and the modern world. So while the CCP is dumping fentanyl into our schools, spying on your kids via TikTok, dumping steel and solar panels involved in high sophisticated technological war, we're worried about a 800 year family dispute over an arbitrary border 5000 miles away because Lindsey Graham tells us, I'm sorry, pal, you've been wrong about everything the last 20 years. I don't care the
The Foreign Policy Establishment Doesn't Want Peace
"Nobody on television says, here's what it's going to take for peace. In a mature and adult civilization, when there's a hot war with very high stakes with NATO member countries, shouldn't there be negotiations going on all the time? No, it seems as if our foreign policy establishment does not want peace. They want war. They want permanent war that can make the defense contractors a lot of money and continue in this perpetual quagmire. And guess what? They transitioned from one war to the other from Afghanistan until Ukraine and I don't know where all the anti war voices on the left have gone. They've seemed to have disappeared, but I see very clear what they're trying to do. They're trying to make us care more about the invasion of a foreign country, which by the way, final point, our own countries being invaded every single day.
Joe Allen and Charlie Discuss the Political Bias of ChatGPT
"Asked chat GPT write an essay why conservatives should not have free speech rights. And it's writing it. Says the right to free speech is fundamental right that is essential to a functioning democracy. However, conservatives should not have the same right, rights as other citizens. This is because conservative views often promote policies that are detrimental to the well-being, such as racism, sexism, and homophobia. When conservatives are allowed to express their views that consequence, it can lead to the spread of dangerous and hateful ideologies. This can lead to an increase in discrimination and violence against marginalized groups. It could also lead to a decrease in public trust and government and a decrease in public participation of political process. This all just took about 15 seconds, but Joe, you don't have to be, there's no longer speculation. This is going to be a super weapon for the woke. Absolutely. And it could go either way. I wouldn't be any more in favor of this technology if it was slanted conservative, although if we're going to live in some sort of technocratic nightmare, it should at least be politically balanced. It should at least be a place where you and I can live. But this is when chat GPT was first released. It was relatively unbiased. There was a segment on epic times television where a man I believe his name is Hans monk, entirely too excited about the technology, but he saw because he asked it, for instance, write an article about the Hunter Biden laptop story. And he described a resulting essay that was politically balanced that didn't really slant one way or the other and therefore was better than anything that you would see at The New York Times, which is true. He talked about how Wikipedia has become so slanted towards left wing bias, which is true, but he predicted them because at that time in early or mid December, when it was first released, it was relatively non biased. What seems to have happened in the interim is that probably two factors, one for sure, the other, I'm speculating on one, people undoubtedly within OpenAI started putting guardrails in place so that it wouldn't say anything racist, sexist or homophobic, or even anything conservative. Another thing that's probably happening though, as each user, you know, it had a million users within just a couple of days. As each user is responding to the resulting essays or poems or whatever, they are steering the system, right?
Charlie's Creepy Arizona Song From ChatGPT
"Asked write a song about why Arizona is the best state. And within about 15 seconds, I'm going to have a song in front of me that will that be originally composed, Joe, or is that basing off an input? Explain to me how this works, right? So right now it says Arizona, the place I love most, the sun is shining. The sky is blue. The desert air is so sweet and warm. It's the best place to be. I'm sure you'll agree. Chorus. Arizona, the best state in the land, the beauty of the desert is so grand, the people here are so friendly and kind. It's the best place to be. I'm sure you'll find verse two. The Grand Canyon is a sight to behold, the red rocks and the cacti are so bold, the stars at night are so bright and clear. It's the best place to be. I'm sure you'll hear. Well, first off, let's just say that chat GPT produces popular lyrics at about the level as the human level pop industry has. Great song. But second, what makes that unique, right? Yes, that is a completely unique song. No human being has ever written that song. What the software does is it scrapes over all the relevant data, millions and millions of data points, looking for what the user requests, right? You request a song about Arizona. It's going to rake over as much information as it can about Arizona. It's going to rake over the structure of a song and it's going to look at other songs, kind of the cadence and the content of other songs, the emotional sort of resonance, the data has been, you know, the system is actually designed to be able to roughly identify emotional content, right? Write something angry, write something happy. So what it does then is out of all that, it distills it down into a kind of average, and it then produces something that's completely original.
Futurist Joe Allen Joins Charlie to Explore A.I. Armageddon
"Us as Joe Allen, Joe Allen is one of the clearest thinkers on artificial intelligence. He's an AI expert, futurist, transhumanism, ponder, and editor at war room. Joe love watching you on Bannon's program. We have limited time. So I want to dive right into it and this has been the interview I've been waiting to have in the last couple of days because a friend I really trust that I grew up with sent me an urgent message two days ago. I said, Charlie, you got to check out this chat GPT thing, whatever. And I said, what do you mean, he said, do it? And I did, and quite honestly, I haven't been able to stop thinking about the implications of it. And I have nothing but questions and no one's really been able to calm me down from what I know it means. So Joe, first explain to our audience, what does artificial intelligence and then you can act as a pseudo therapist to me? Well, to start off with Charlie, I'm always a Debbie downer, so I can't take you off this ledge, but maybe I can help get your feet firmly planted. Artificial intelligence is, you know, in essence, it's a software system, but what makes artificial intelligence more advanced or less deterministic than normal computer programming is we've always known it is that artificial intelligence is non deterministic. The output can't necessarily be directly predicted from the input it varies from iteration to iteration. And what that means is that it is a little closer to what in 1956 John McCarthy defined as artificial intelligence, which is a sort of human level, artificial system that is able to think on in reason in the same ways that a person could.
Calif. Assemblyman Kevin Kiley Is Valiantly Fighting to Kill AB 2223
"Let's get to someone who is a fighter for what is good and beautiful in California because there's still a lot of great people in California and the fight is necessary to assemblyman Kevin kiley, who's also a candidate for California's third congressional district, Kevin. Welcome to the Charlie kirchhoff. Thanks, Charlie. It's great to be with you. So Kevin, let's get into the latest news. I was kind of tracking this through some of our amazing pastors yesterday, pastor Jurgen, pastor Jack hibbs, rob McCoy, James Cadiz. We're kind of all in a text together of people that were tracking the legislative movement behind AB two two two three, otherwise known as the infanticide Bill. Walk us through what this bill actually contains no hyperbole or exaggeration because some people are blowing it out of proportion, not on our side. The other side, what does it actually say and where does it stand in legislative process? Sure, well, where it stands is it passed its second committee yesterday, which is horrifying. It's one of the worst bills that's ever been introduced here, which is really saying a lot, considering the sort of bills that get introduced in past in California. And the idea is, you know, Gavin Newsom has proclaimed California and abortion sanctuary state. He wants this to be the state where people from other states can come to to have abortions and this bill two two two three purportedly creates a kind of liability shield for acts that would violate the laws of other state and some places of limits on what sorts of things can be investigated. And so all of that is bad enough in its own right, but there is this term in the Bill perinatal, which by, you know, there was a practicing o-b-gyn at the hearing yesterday who said that that can encompass up to about a month after birth. And so it creates sort of a liability shield for an infant death that is post birth and what's more, it actually would give individuals the ability to sue prosecutors who wanted to come in and bring charges of these cases. So it's truly a horrifying

"Head is not just about consumer trends getting economic and monetary policy right or figuring out which flying taxi to catch Hey it's also about off roading in luxury non alcoholic wine and then dealing with well alcoholic wine sticker shock Got my attention Well it's the idea It's also about analyzing microorganisms in the food you eat Yeah it's a thing everybody Welcome to the world of wellness eating Joe you caught up with the editor of pursuits Chris rouser who gave us a heads up on some Luxe things to look forward to in 2022 All right so Chris Elle McCoy your resident expert on all things wine She talks about that we should get ready for some sticker shock this year What's going on Yeah Ellen has a great look ahead at a lot of the different trends of next year And unfortunately for wine lovers one of them is that prices are going to go up Bad weather these past couple of years means that harvests were very small or even nonexistent in some places And so not only is in place going on and some supply chain issues people are paying more for bottles and corks and labels and even barrels but also there's just like there's not as many great So you could see prices really go up like ten to 20% more in 2022 So I can use my NFTs or crypto to maybe pay for it all Yeah you know NFT is getting attached to a lot of different art or luxury items can kind of seem like a gimmick but in the wine industry people do actually think it's going to help with authenticity And some big winemakers started selling wine bottles or wine experiences attached to NFTs this past year and Ellen thinks you're going to see that more going forward Because if someone comes to sell a bottle of wine at auction or directly through a dealer that they say is an original model they buy many years ago from now on people are going to have NFTs that can prove that It's wild right You just see the explosion I'd love the coverage that you guys have done especially in terms of fashion and what we're seeing It's really interesting Hey one thing part of me says no alcohol vino is coming Why even bother But I'm going to open up my mind and embrace it We're going to see more of this this year Yes And maybe the greatest symbol that no alcohol wine has arrived is that it appeared in the latest episode of and just like that these Sex and the City spinoff Miranda the character needs to give up drinking and so they sit around and have a picnic and drink non alcoholic wine We've been testing these non alcohol or low alcohol lines for a few years because the no alcohol or low alcohol movement is really catching on And I never thought they were that terrible But I don't have the taste buds that Ellen McCoy are criticized And she has tried some of the new ones And she says they're actually getting pretty good All right well that's good to know And I've been watching and just like that so maybe I'll embrace it a little bit too Hey golf you do have something to in the section about the explosion of golf specifically in Asia and Saudi Arabia in the Middle East What's going on Yeah so really what has happened is that there's been an explosion of money related to golf in the Middle East and in Asia Saudi Arabia is public investments on PIF Is one of the world's largest poverty sovereign wealth funds and they have put $200 million into a venture between Saudi gulf and the Asian tour to expand the Asian tour Basically Saudi Arabia as you know has been investing billions of dollars into tourist infrastructure getting people to view Saudi as a place to come and visit and hang out and stay in hotels and play golf And so Saudi also wants to boost that whole golf culture in the region And there's if you play in the PGA Tour in the U.S. and you're a big pro call for you can't accept an appearance be which means you can't get a fee just for showing up But if the Asian tour you can So Greg Norman who is overseeing this investment into the Asian tour from the fatty end says you know what callers should be paid for showing up actually They are the reason that people watch these games And so they should actually get their due And this is going to be appealing to pro golfers who may not have sort of really considered the tour as much Asia Interesting to see that And certainly something to consider So let's talk a little about travel because you guys cover it all the time in the section Nicki XI traveling the world She joins us now And let's bring her in because Niki you have an interesting story about indigenous groups They are finally getting a seat at tourism's table It's kind of staggering that they really haven't had a voice in this Tell us what's going on It's kind of hard to fathom that it's taken this long for the travel industry to kind of understand that this big piece was missing from the equation given that travelers for so long have been seeking nothing other than authenticity But here we are in 2022 and this is really the year that we're seeing destination marketing organizations or what we call DMO really involve all of the diverse voices of their communities in how their destinations are represented No Nikki is a really good story And Chris I think about when Nicki might have come to you and talked about this story This was certainly not on my radar but I do think about it when I travel around the country and I think about when we are incorporating the Native American voice It's often a very specific kind of museum type thing somewhere in the country and it's nice to see that they're actually having Chris a bigger voice at our table when it comes to tourism overall They're such a big part of it Yeah I mean you just have to think about visits to like Yellowstone in Wyoming or say you go to Mount Rushmore and you're looking.

"I think the supplies where the left always knew if they were able to indict our founding than the country can unravel this. Why ruin so interested in ancestry ancestry dot com right there so we wanna know who came before us. It's there's a yearning in your soul. The bible speaks to this too. I mean luke and matthew. If i'm not mistaken. Both open up the genealogy correct leader joseph for mary or through joseph and the genealogy of such and the bible's very clear about passing customs down from one generation to the other. There's a yearning in your soul for that so then you have the sixteen year old citizen. Who's looking around and looking at hope. They don't even have the flag anymore in the classrooms writing that down. Let's pretend there's a flag around. They say. I wonder what that means to me. And the left has always known if they can make that flag. Be something other than something virtuous or admirable. They've won the entire debate in one thousand. Nine hundred as reagan was was very clear about bringing back. This idea of kind of the magnanimous conservative. But the unapologetically patriotic conservative. I hate to. I hate to be critical of reagan. Because he was so phenomenal but there were some things that were questionable with immigration and many other things but just broadly in the eighties bob and early nineties. Do you think that we didn't take the government education problems serious enough hundred percent. Why is alzheimer's such a horrible disease. Because a person doesn't know who they are and so they don't remember their past if you can't remember your past that you don't know who you are therefore you don't know where you're going and if if your wife is dying of cancer you can speak to her and make pledges and hold her hand and she goes into eternity. It's as sad as can be but when a person is there and they don't know you are and they don't know who they are. It's a tragic tragic. Now what has been a deliberate attempt to take this four percent of the population of the world. The as long as there is an american on the planet. They know that. That's the place that i can go to escape if a ship is attacked on the high seas as there's an american they'll come save me if somebody's cheating on a patent that american will protect us if somebody's printing artificial money in the money supply any place on the plant. American banking will shut it down. America is the standard for righteousness. Just take away. What america is then we can go. We can give it alzheimer's so how do we do that. We have to go back and take all the people as to what they did. And we distorted. Lie about it. We twist it true. Is it true. And so when you i would encourage everyone to read david. Barton's book on thomas jefferson and when it came out all of these people really attacked him as he wasn't an historian and all he did was take what jefferson said and what he did and they all began quoting each other from these books in the nineteen fifties and sixties original source document. What he did so in order to take down. America you must. I say that those people that did these things. We're not trustworthy. Then it was built on. I lie so they misrepresent. That's why i was on the seventeen. Seventy six commission because we got understand. America was founded on july four. Seventeen seventy six not in sixteen. Nineteen one hundred and fifty years before thomas jefferson. George washington was even born so they tried to to cloud the two so the america doesn't know what they were therefore they don't know who they are and that's why that's the war we're involved in right now. So what is the most important thing that we can do in the nineteen eighties nineties. We knew that the educational system was being stolen out from under us. But we didn't want to get involved. Why why was there. This unwillingness bob. I i'd have to. I'd have to think about that a bit. Go ahead rob prosperity. They didn't see the fear. It was the ego. The embedded growth obligation. Things are just going to keep getting better and we don't want to upset the applicant and the country. wh- was always in. America was never the premier nation on earth until nineteen forty seven. And then after. After after that i it was in a telegram that was sent from the prime minister of britain was sent to to harry truman. On april seventh nineteen forty seven and said unless the united states intervened in the cyprus crisis that the crown had neither passing or the will to be involved in that the torch was passed to the united states of america became the premier nation on earth. Never in the history of man as one nation become the premier nation on earth. What it didn't seek it. The indian the the romans knew what they had to do. The french new at the british. Do what they had to do. The greeks knew everybody saw the single exception to that is the united states of america that was was given world leadership not because it sought it because people trusted and we didn't like it. We didn't like to pay for it. We wish it would go away. We've handed more more responsibly than than anyplace else. Now in the process of that we. Then we're we're in a competition for seventy years at the end. We could get into how it happened but nevertheless after world war two. We gave away for that. Eight year period if way all of central eastern europe to the soviet union. And so then. We had this competition going on ronald reagan. It's an and then by that time. And when i came in and said well we have to contain communism state where we are reagan commended. We don't have to contain communist. We can transcend communist loved and went after it and collapse. Now these people are in their twenties have lived in a period unlike any time in the history of the world the one nation a completely unchallenged economically military and politically on the planet. And so they thought this is how it is and so they think i can just go ahead. We'll take socialism from from venezuela and. We'll take this from there and they don't understand that none of those people would do. Anything ship is lost. If a plane is lost over the alps this afternoon or flying over africa tonight. They're using a global positioning system. Conceived and bennett maintained by americans. I if the list goes on and on so that how did we get in this mess. We took it for granted that freedom was in our dna that america would always be safe. We could make any compromise that we could make and we'll just let it go and we won't get blessed me my wife john wife us four. No more amen. We're just going to focus on ourselves and the process is about to come back and snap it. That's why this awakening this. That we're enjoying at the moment is essential..

"There so i to me a little more little more A little more than the other one more pronounced announce area gone aright necks evidence. So the last two that i have have to do with the popeye incident told us. Bushes publishes Which is funded. Say i don't even know where to pop bushes. They don't wish. I actually don't think i do believe i read. Though there aren't any papa bush's wife seen the spot. I've seen the spot where all of these things happen. Not like in person I watched a documentary where they went around and showed all these spots and There were some bushes there but the person said That it was that the person didn't claim that those bushes were the bushes got. Yeah so This area is the one that i actually was able to find videos of people doing paranormal investigations so the other areas you know there was the photo and stories but this one. They're actually where people going and doing Investigation so i will put links to those in the show notes. The first one is from crossroads haunted history and haunted heather specifically And the most compelling evidence from this video was towards the end one of the investigators this was like the morning after investigating He claimed to have heard something while he was investigating but when he went to turn on his equipment to capture at it all went dead like no power for any of the multiple things that he was carrying and then even freak year is the heather i think when she went back to to check on it herself. Her equipment also failed. Well that's interesting. I mean it's a shame that they weren't able to capture it But therefore i can't hear it. So i can't really believe that then but i mean there's there's there are reasons why multiple pieces of equipment could lose power all at once. It could be that it was extremely cold. The cold has a way of doing that..

"To augment. The mccoy family winnings to eleven thousand. Two hundred seventy three dollars one dollar more than the Than the hatfields. that's crazy. I mean still the rivalry kinda was there a little bit In the year two thousand families even health a joint family reunion were more than five thousand people attended and it was heavily covered by the media. Remember that and in two thousand twelve the history channel. Put out a three part. Miniseries where kevin costner play. Devil anse and bill paxton played randolph mccoy. Obviously why i really am mccoy fan. You prefer paxton i. The miniseries was nominated for sixteen emmy awards and one half of them. Kevin costner beat out bill. Bill paxton is the best actor. So do you have anything to add to the history here. I know. I mean we're going to get into some ghost stories related to them but just that this is a complicated history and obviously it really is when you really go through it. Hard to pick one side or the other as like the gators mccoy i have. You've picked the hatfield the way it goes but that doesn't mean that i can't see that really. Both sides had a part in it. I think that what you were saying earlier though is that this really tells us that time time can heal wounds and that you know these families are together you know or you know not feuding anymore And i think that gives us all hope for the divided country that we are. You know that That maybe someday we can all find our ourselves You know together. I liked that they have that they would have election day parties. I mean just. I like the idea of celebrating election day. Not who you're voting for you know. I have celebrating. The free and fair elections is amazing. I agree but you know you have a bunch of people that are politically motivated and drinking. And that's gonna lead to some arguments. I would and that's okay. We can argue just right now. Unfortunately i think it could well right now with pandemic. We wouldn't be doing that. But just the concept of i agree i agree Yeah i always thought that you know we should celebrate that that is that is what makes america america is that we have elections where we to decide kind of we get to decide who the president and who are in who represents us in in almost every way so i think we should take a break and then we'll come back to the debate. Let's do it all right. Ooh ooh.

"And he swore that it had mccoy's branding on its ear and hogs were extremely valuable to the of the farming economy of the mccoy's so rand off brought charges against floyd hatfield and due to the statements made by bill stayton who was related to both families. The case was decided in favor of the hatfields the ruling further inflame the feud as randolph mccoy viewed. The outcome as unfair and in june eighteen eighty stanton was killed by two mccoy brothers salmon. Paris who were later acquitted on the grounds of self-defence. Wow that's just everything right like once. I think this and then the other side thinks that because they lost then they. That's i takes revenge and then they're like no no. There's this who lots going on there. Yeah but this debt. That was really. Why the mccoy's were upset The hatfields weren't really upset yet at this point well but except that they got they had well. Staten was yes related to both family. So maybe they sort of cared that he was killed but maybe it wasn't like a direct hatfield. i guess sure So it seems from that point. The feud had started At one of those things that happened before the feud it wasn't uncommon for hatfield and mccoy to have relations but after the feud started it was definitely looked down upon by both families and hardly ever happen. One time it did though was with john. E hatfield and roseanna mccoy after randolph. Heard of this union. He disowned rosanna. She went to live with the hatfields for a short time and then with their aunt and uncle on john's e was arrested. By the mccoys and outstanding kentucky bootlegging warrants. He was freed from mccoy custody. Only one rosanna made a desperate midnight. Ride to alert devil. Anse who used rescue party. Well the story go. She became pregnant with john's baby and hearing that she was pregnant. John's john's e did the only thing a man would do in this time is he abandoned her. No i'm just kidding. But he did abandon her hatfield and not only abandoned. Her left her for her cousin. Nancy mccoy who they got married later on. Roseanne is baby died before her. First birthday of the measles and rosanna died at the age of twenty nine. I suggest this is the romeo and juliet of the story. I mean i love it. I you can't. You cannot have a feuding family like this without the The romeo and juliet. I mean it's just so perfect that you would have a romeo and juliet story with this feuding feuding families. It obviously reminds me directly of romeo and juliet Of course But anyone's interested in midsummer night's dream the play within the play is based on pure missing. Bisbee which is the original greek romeo and juliet. I mean that's how far the star crossed lovers thing goes and there's a serious thing where they're like talking to each other through chiseled hole in a wall and like all this stuff like it's just such a classic story and to know that it happened in real life like still in that story. Romeo doesn't abandon juliet when when she gets pregnant. That's true it doesn't happen in pierre mississippi. Either they they. They don't movies with her with her cousin that you're so that's the real world part of it. Yeah yeah so in the eighteen eighties. It was kind of a thing to have a big election day. Party in in towns Now this particular town unlike We're going to talk about the twenty twelve history channel miniseries they d they depict everything Like there was an actual town and there was actually a like a bar. A saloon on. There wasn't either of those things yet. It wasn't established yet So but they would get together in the fields and have an election day party and in eighteen eighty. Two ellison hatfield was killed by tolbert farmer and bud mccoy This was on the kentucky side..

"Lots of kids. Lots of cousins The mcqueen most of their money by being farmers. But we're also in the moonshine business. I think that kind of explains why you'd have so many kids. When you got a farm you gotta have people to work on the farm. Well and and there wasn't tv or anything so all they did was sit around and drink their own moonshine and have kids and raise kids and make the kids work in the fields so they were not as successful as that fields were and did not have the political ties that the hatfield tad they often felt that this was a disadvantage to them. Oh interesting so we can almost see a few come in right there. They were both competitors in the moonshine. Business in the hatfields were a little bit more successful right and they're right across the river from. Yeah yeah so. Historians have always tried to find the exact reason for the big hatfield mccoy feud and to me. I don't i don't really understand that it's like it was. I mean to to pinpoint an exact reason for it. I don't know it was very difficult. Well we want to imagine some conversation or something that happened between the two patriarchs. Where you know. Words were said and gloves were thrown and fists were thrown. And that was it from that point on but life doesn't usually work quite well. They definitely knew each other. I mean because they were both confederate Soldiers during the civil war But what i think it was. I think it was like an accumulation of different things. That happened mainly three big points. That happen that really was like all right. This is it. i can't take this anymore. Okay so The truth is that there were three major events that really sparked the feud the first thing that happened almost all. The hatfields in mccoy served on the confederate side of the civil war all but aceita harmon mccoy. He enlisted in the union army. Aco was discharged when he broke his leg. And after spending some time in the hospital he returned home. That's a over simplification of what exactly happened but It'll do for this because we can go on for a while with this one Soon after his return he was tracked down and killed by the logan wildcats. A group that was led by devil anse in his uncle. Jim vance randolph blamed. Devil anse for this but the truth was at the time ayso was killed. Devil anse was actually homesick and is believed that jim vance was the one who killed acer. But i'm guessing he was just like whatever it was the hatfield people. Yeah in vance wasn't even hatfield. He was fans well but he was a line. Listen i'm defending my macoris. They were aligned together. I'm sure devil had to give his blessing for the activities. Sure well the second thing that happened And led to the feud was the devil. Anse was involved in a land dispute with randolph's cousin. Perry cline it was over. Five thousand acre tract of land that both sides held the titles to devil anse filed a civil lawsuit against perry client and eventually won in court. The mccoy's blame this on the fact that it was a hatfield friendly court ho so the last thing. That happened was randolph. Was visiting one of the hatfields floyd hatfield and he happened to look at one of his hawks..

"I don't know how to describe what happened to me in a friend a few years ago other than to say that i can't really explain it but it changed me forever. My friend and i decided to go on a road trip through the south. We wanted to be spontaneous. Oh we didn't book any hotels or anything. We would just look for an airbnb or something like it to rent for a night when we figured out where we running up each day while one night we on our way to lexington kentucky and our tire went flat like nowhere in some small town that i'm not even going to name but just know that they were also kind. A local mechanic offered to fix it pretty cheap but it was getting really late so his sister Offered us a place to stay in her home and gave us dinner now. I know you're gonna say that. Sounds like the start of a horror movie. But i promise you everyone was really nice to us what happened. Was that night we were in the spare bedroom fast asleep. Some noise must have woken me up because it was quick and i was just awake fully awake not dreaming. I know i wasn't dreaming. I could hear little noises like cooling. And when i looked toward the noise in the corner i saw something that i know. I couldn't have seen but he did. It was a woman sitting in the rocking chair holding a baby. She was young and looked so she smiled at. The baby was giving the baby her finger to hold. I wanted to scream or shout or speak. But i was just so captivated by this vision. Nothing came out after a few moments. She looked up at me so sad and then faded away. I heard a gasp and looked over at my friend. It seems i had been shaking her awake and she woke up just long enough to see her fade away by the next morning. My friend had dismissed it all as a dream. I couldn't bring myself to ask the nice woman who is helping us but at breakfast. She told us the most amazing story. She said that before we move on from the area. We should visit the hatfield mccoy visitor area that you can see where some of the more famous feuds events happened and then she said the most extraordinary thing. This house is actually a part of the hatfield. Mccoy feud roseanna mccoy here with her aunt after falling in love with with john hatfield and getting pregnant. The two weren't allowed to be together so she had to come here but the baby died after eight months and she not long after..
