"Idea. It's God's idea. Yes. And so it'll be three days August 10th, 11 12th, anyone wants to come. In coronado, California. My birthplace. Yeah, it's TPUSA dot com slash casters and it's for pastors only, right? So a lot of congregates want to come say sorry, this one's not for you, but if you are a pastor, you could apply to come and maybe there's someone listening right now that needs to hear that. Absolutely. And granted, it's still enough if it's not full already. It might not be full, but I might be able to make a couple. Yeah, and there will be attrition. There'll be some dropouts. So you need to come to this. And you know, Charlie, I've done pastors events around the country with different organizations. We barely advertise this and it filled up so quick because I know people are hungry for this. The pastors need this. It's jam packed. We have some amazing speakers I'll name them off. Pastor Al McCoy, Bill Federer. Yep. Bob mckeown, Chad Connelly, David Barton, who's special, doctor James Lindsay. Now let's talk about this for a second, doctor James Lindsay is not a Christian. No, he's an agnostic. And some people are not some people small, angry people are fired up. Why are you having agnostic speak at a pastor's conference? My take is one thing. I'll let you go first, so rob. I got a letter from folks that were reaching out because they'd heard a thing on CRN. And I said, look, do you hold the same kind of judgment on the pilot who flies your plane? On the surgeon that works on you to demand their faith because he's coming to speak about one issue critical race theory. He knows he's not going to venture into anywhere he doesn't, and he's respectful of our face. Remarkably, remarkably curious. And curious. And he's going to be surrounded by passwords are going to share with him. And he spoke in our church and he talked on critical race here. Nobody knows it better. And his comment, if I was an angry atheist, I would use critical race to destroy the church. He is a great asset to protect the church in America. So I don't know what they're talking about. Well, I think it's silly. By the way, we have worshiped we have praised. We'll have pastors Perry beginning and end. Very clear about what we believe. But also, again, just to kind of, if the best brain surgeon on the planet, let's say you need a brain surgery and an availability came up and you found out the brain surgeon was an atheist. Yeah. Would you not? Same thing. You get on an airplane in the pilot, you trust your life dude, you want them to, you know, is there a religious test for that? Do you want someone competent? And especially since there are no other experts in the field like James Lindsey period. No one even close. And password votey bakam attributes doctor James Lindsay that's worked to his book false. Yes. And those are all, they're all phenomenal, but his full-time scholarship is this work. It is postmodernism. He was just on the show. He was just rattling off stuff. He goodness. He gives me stretch marks on my brain. And he footnotes everything. Everything. And he's charming and all that. So he'll be speaking. Frank turek, great apologist. He's unbelievable. And gracious. I've never seen an apologist who's so kind of that guy. I don't know if that's a combo to Frank or indictment of apologist or both. Yeah, you know, yeah, yeah. So obviously doctor Larry aren't from the wonderful hillsdale college. Charlie for hillsdale dot com. Matt staver from liberty, liberty, first look pretty no, no, that's Kelly shackleford. It's a liberty council. Liberty council. Micah beckwith. Faster from Indiana. Fearless, faster than he's wonderful. We have passed through the engelhardt who's right there, turning point you say board member, sweet man and runs a church in Manhattan. New York City of all places. Amy Chen is going to be part of our educational panel with doctor Lisa Dunn, pastor Gary Hamrick. Who will be at calvary chapel, loudoun county. He's the one. Loud and county. I think corners cornerstone. That's right. Cornerstone cavalry chapel. Jack hips. Tabby Chappell Chino Hills. Yeah, he's the 5 star in California. Rebecca friedrichs, talking about education as well on a panel there. Pastor John, I'm a cool. Yep. Great man. It's a tough name to pronounce, but solid preacher. Pastor John Randall, from calvary chapel, San Juan capistrano. Ken graves from Bangor Maine. Congrats. He's a cross between leonidas and Shakespeare. That's right. We have coming out of our turning point with pastor summit, Luke Barnett, great man. A dream city church phenomenal man blessed by him. Lila rose is going to just come talk about abortion. One of the leading advocates on that pastoral Reese pastor Rick Brown pastor Steve smotherman from legacy church in Mexico one of my all time favorite people in the world. Bob Tyler. Tell us about bob Tyler. Bob Tyler is my attorney. He had your back legally. Everyone else ran for the hills, right? Yeah, when they ran for the hills, bob Tyler was there. I remember telling him, you know, bob, I know you can't counsel me to break the law, but I'm going to violate that restraining order because they named me in a thousand congregants or visitors if we opened our church during a lockdown. And he said, I'll defend you and he's never left my side. And he's been successful. We won. Rick green? Patriot academy? Patriot Kevin. And that's the biblical citizenship classes that we're seeing across the country is a direct result of Rick green in the contact we've got. And he's just killing it. I love it. Sean Foyt, Sean foy, that man started worship protests on the Golden Gate Bridge during lockdowns and he's traveled the country. He's been so charming. But he's been in Portland. This guy was in North Korea, Iraq. There's nowhere he won't go. There's no fear in this way. I love him. Victor marks, obviously. Fan favorite. And then Walter hoy and Laura hoy. Yeah, those two talk about the Holocaust and the black community. She's a statistician for the Golden State Warriors. The only black female in the NBA in that position. And the work she does to point out the destruction of the black community. He's a statistician for the Golden State Warriors. Why didn't know that? Yeah. And for her for speaking at our deal, two Walters been in prison for defending the unborn. Really? Yeah. How so? He was in Oakland protesting, they came after him..

"All right, so we'll do one more question, but first, just first, I want to do a selfish plug really quick, everybody, if you'll go with me. So as I mentioned, we do three podcasts a day, three hours of radio day. We are under constant threat by Google and Facebook to kind of kick us off these platforms. So one way you guys could bless us. It's totally free of charge. Is you guys can subscribe to our podcast and just if you take out your phone, it's free of charge. It's really easy. I think there's a lot of you, right? Now if you did it the other church, that's great. The other location, which is if you don't know what a QR code is, where's malachi? Malachi can walk you through that. Let me tell you why this blesses us really quick. We are this is a free of charge way. We could stay in touch. If we could be maybe become your daily news source, maybe once a week, we would agree, Micah, we spent a lot of time on it, a lot of research. So thank you guys for considering it. Once you go to that page, you hit the subscribe button, which is the upper right hand corner, or you can just take out your podcast app type in Charlie Kirk show. It blesses us. We had over a 127 million listeners last year and we are the number one podcast out there that regularly talks about the gospel and brings people close to the lord. So please consider doing that. Thank you, and we'll go to the last question. I think we got Amelia there. Yeah, okay. Awesome. Yep, one last question. Well, my name is Amelia, and mine's kind of a two part question. So I've been interested in how to passion for freedom, pretty much my whole life since I was a little girl, and I've had other Christians actually tell me that Christians shouldn't be involved. Yeah. And I would watch a Ronald Reagan's speech a few weeks ago, the evil empire. That's what it's called and he was talking about how Christians that think that it's actually a pride issue. Because they think they're above it. They're above politics and things. And I just wondered what you thought of that and also what a young conservative like me can do to get involved because you know I post on social media and all those things, but you only can reach so many people like that. Well, first of all, I totally agree. It's a pride thing. I also think that it's twofold. I think some people don't want to get involved because they don't want the annoyance of it. They wish it didn't exist. You know, people say all the time. Politics is messy, like so is the church. What's your point? Anything that involves human beings is going to be messy. But politics is important. It's very important. The type of government we have matters a lot. I'm not saying it's more important. Remember first things second thing. But we have to push back against that nonsense in every single every single possible way. Your second point, what can a young conservative do? What can conservatives do? This is a great final question, by the way, because I was going to get here. So many of you came here tonight and you laughed and you got excited and you're wondering, all right, Charlie, what do I do? The odds seem overwhelming. Like I've done everything that's been asked of me. I watch Tucker Carlson. I bought the pillow. I have piles. Which is funny. I've actually do both of those things. I did actually buy a pillow. I was like, I gotta support that guy. He's amazing. I got piles of relief factor. I reverse mortgage my haul. I have this weird chair that goes up the stairs. I don't know what it does. What else can I do? I'm gonna give you some marching orders, everybody, which is we have to change our attitude to an attitude of courage. And that is from the lord. And all that we do, what is courage? Courage is doing the right thing when you do not know how it's going to work out. Courage is committing yourself to the good above the expedient. Kurt moral courage is the most necessary yet absent characteristic in men. And the cool thing about courage is anyone can be courageous. You don't have to be smart, you don't have to be rich, you don't have to be well connected. Anybody can make a choice to be courageous. You just have to make that choice. The courage, the courageous person, says I don't care what will be done to me. I care what is good and what is true. So we as Christians are called to do more courageous action. Number one, number two, we got to build more stuff. We've got to build bigger families. We've got to build bigger churches. We have to build bigger businesses. We are made of the image of God as creators. We had to create more stuff and build more stuff and we have to take more risks and my personal opinion and the marketplace and building bigger churches and bigger communities and doing all that. We have to stop this cynical nonsense, which was alluded to earlier. Charlie, everything's falling apart, or it's falling into place or whatever. I'm not going to do anything. Reject that. Time in the hours unknown. We have to think bigger, more ambitiously. We're up against the most unhappy, the most kind of foolish and quite honestly like degenerate political movement ever. They're always negative all the time. We could be the positive. We should be that we have the true answers. So we should always be spreading them with joy and compassion and magnanimity. And the final thing I'll say with this, which I think is really important of what you can do is you've got to keep on bringing it to the lord. Fast and pray for your nation. Daniel did this. And I encourage people at least once a month. If you're worried about your country and again, you've got all the accessories around your house, right? The relief factor in the pill and all that, I'd say your time would be better used. Fasting and praying for your nation, the lord will speak to you. Ask God for wisdom and he will give it to you generously is what it says in James one 5. And so keep on bringing that to the lord. And I think God will speak to an amazing way. He might whisper in your ear, run for office. Whisper in your ear, support that ministry. Whisper in your ear, Micah's family needs some help and support, pray for them. So be constantly engaged and involved, and it's a posture change, which I know is hard for some of you, where we have to stop being a spectator and start being a participant. In the arena, it could be something as simple as getting involved with a TPUSA faith group that we have at life church. It could be something like, hey, I'm going to help the local Republican organization. I'm going to bring them cookies once a month. Whatever it is, you're going to get more engaged and more involved. I'm going to be a princess committee man. I'm going to go help register voters. All these things matter. But that changes with the attitude. An attitude of optimism and of joy and of asking God God use me as your vessel, wherever we possibly can, to fight for liberty to set the captives free. God bless you. Appreciate it. Yeah. Well, can we just thank Charlie for being here? This was incredible. I mean, you are, you are such an encouragement and thank you guys so much. God bless Indiana. Thank you, brother. I appreciate you. Thank you so much for listening, everybody. Email me your thoughts is always freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com. Thank you so much for listening. God bless.

"So people ask me all the time. Charlie, are you pre trib? Are you post trib? Look, I'm pantry. It's all going to pan out in the end, okay? Never in the gospels. Does Jesus say to stop fighting evil or proclaiming truth if you think things are all of a sudden going to be going towards never does it says occupied till I come. We salt and light. So look, people say all the time. Charlie, the house is on fire. I just want to get the kids out. Jesus coming next Thursday. We're all getting zapped up. I say, you're using your eschatology as an excuse. Jesus has the time in the hours unknown. You look at the signs of the times, but if you're in action, is correlated to an apathy, then I'm going to say something provocative, you're no different than Greta Thunberg. How dare you? Seriously. How dare you let's think about it. Read a fun burg and people that don't act because the rescue are doing the same thing for the same reason. The world is going to end. So why does it matter? And that's nihilism. That is not Christianity. Christianity, we should be trying to proclaim the truth. If you think things are falling apart, you should be accelerating. Your attempt to try to spread God's goodness, not the opposite. So the answer I would say is reject your friend's cynicism and excuse the nihilism, to try to say, well, we know how the book ends and we also know what we're supposed to do. We know that the persecution is supposed to intensify, but we lean in. We know that the lies in the slander are going to increase what we lean in. And we know that God will bless us or judge us based on how we do that at that period of time. So challenge your Friends, but not allow their eschatology to be an excuse for their inaction. Wonderful question. Thanks for being here. Thank you two more. Okay, we'll do two more. We'll do two more. Here and there. Okay. Hi, Charlie. My name's Amanda tokas, and about a year ago I started kind of a grassroots effort in my school district getting involved and recently decided to go ahead and run for school board and thank you. One of the things that I'm already tackling is trying to identify sexually explicit books within our schools and I tapped into that and the media and a lot of people, of course, have gotten the national library association involved in, of course, they're attacking me. My question to you then is do I engage or do I disengage? So are they attacking you for trying to there are labeling me as a book banner and racist and homophobe? Okay. Well, if it's harder for you to do your job, then I'm always okay with responding and all that. I think you should fight lies wherever they come across your life. That's my own personal opinion. And so kind of, let's talk about this kind of idea of book banning is insane. So the protection of the innocence of children by definition requires standards and restriction. By definition, I mean the innocence of children is something that Jesus himself went out of his way to say that we have a moral obligation to try to protect. And so this is where liberty goes wrong if you don't understand what liberty is. Liberty is the pursuit of virtue. Liberty is not doing what you want to do whenever you want to do it. I'll prove it to you. The least free person that all of you know is an alcoholic. They are the least free people in the world. They are a slave to their flesh. The flesh is always telling you to do what you want to do when you want to do it, how you want to do it. Liberty is restraining yourself towards virtue, because that's actually keeping you free. And you as a parent or guardian have to do the restraining. So you're not a book banner. No, no, no. You're implementing virtuous books and good things, but you will prevent nonsensical garbage, and yes, satanic garbage from being put towards ten, 11, 12 year olds, stuff that is pornographic by any other objective measure. So I just want to encourage you first and foremost, you're doing the right thing, national library association, all these maniacs, whatever they're doing, whatever. So I think there's something really sick and twisted about this growing pervert movement in America that wants to keep on trying to go after people's children. We're on the side of parents. They're on the side of perverts and the innocence of children is something we must defend unquestionably no matter what. Thank you. Yeah, yeah. Yep..

"It. The final thing that I would say, boy, at age 11, kind of just a really good kind of go to reference and go to book. For anybody of any age, is kind of the timeless work of our founding fathers, anything that they wrote from the federalist papers or their private journals are just great to go to. But I gave you enough references. So dive into those, be a lifelong learner, and find out here's something I wish someone would have told me at 11. Find out the best way you learn. If you read books best, do that. If you listen to audiobooks, do that if you're a visual person, do that. And I wish someone would have told me that earlier, because I'm the best at listening. I listen to books all the time. Some people aren't that way. I'm an okay reader. I just love consuming information audibly. I just remember it better. God bless you, malachi. Thanks for being here. Appreciate it. And I think we'll do, I hate to cut it short, but I just want to respectful of everyone's time here, but I think we'll maybe do two more questions if that's okay. Does that sound? I know. I could stay later. Whatever you guys want, I mean. Your team is going to kill me. They were like, okay, hey, he said, he said, it's still light outside. That's true it is. And it's summer. I want to be respectful of your time, but look, I also want to bless you guys in any way I can. So I'm here to stay. We'll do maybe a couple more. So we'll see what that is. All right, Connor, what do you got? Hi, my name is Mackenzie, and I was thinking about your topic of the three churches in the three cs. And I was speaking to actually a few of my Christians and my fellow circles, ones, especially my age, and I was trying to ask them, why don't you stand up? Why don't you fight for things? Why do you see this as an issue? And two of the reasons they give me is they like to quote Romans 13 one to me. Let every soul be subject into the higher power so there's no power, but of God, the powers that be are ordained of God. And so they like to say, well, we're supposed to be subject to them, God obviously put them in place. So we need to respect their leadership. And then they also like to throw the argument out there. Well, we know what's going to happen in the end. We're told how the end is supposed to look. So anything we do is not going to stop it. So Wi-Fi now, because we ultimately know how it's going to end. How should I respond to that because I know that's not right, because I know we're still proud to fight. How should I respond to them saying, well, we need to be subject. We also just need to, I guess, be okay with it because it's not going to matter in the end. You just asked a great question, but I'm going to involve you in the answer. All right, so in Romans 13, it says we must submit to all rulers and those in authority, right? So I'm going to ask you and there's no wrong answer, but let's kind of learn together. According to U.S. Constitution, who are the rulers. We the people. Right. Boom. So the politicians have to submit to us. Yes. You know how many do you know how many pastors it is amazing? How many pastors in this last two years have said to me? Micah, you're not submitting to the authority got raised up. I'm like, who is that? It's us. What are you talking about? And that's the amazing breakthrough the founders are able to accomplish. The sovereign is with the people, not the king, not the bloodline, not the pull up bureau, not the bureaucracy. So the rulers actually, if they read Romans 13, and they're elected, they must submit to our will. Which is the people. And we submit to God's will, hopefully, okay? Number one, number two, you asked about eschatology. The study of the end time..

"This though, which people ask me all the time. Charlie, you pessimistic, are you optimistic? And I refuse to answer the question, because if I tell you I'm optimistic, then you're going to go home and do nothing because you say, oh, we're going to win because Charlie said we're going to win. If I say I'm pessimistic, you're going to go home and say, I'm going to do nothing because Charlie said we're going to lose. So the way I'm going to answer the question is, is what are you doing about it to make sure we win? That's the answer, which is it takes all of us in how we purchase goods and where you send your kids to school in what you buy and where you travel and all these things that matters, reviving citizen government. And I can tell you right now from the World Economic Forum to the people of the world health assembly to the people in our government. They're super paranoid and nervous. That the everyday citizen is rising against their regime. They don't understand why we have not given up yet. They don't understand why everyday Americans are more hopeful. They thought that we were going to give up and raise the white flag. But guess what? We as Americans are tougher than that. We're not the French that run away when things get bad. We're not the British at complain about everything all the time. So we're Americans. And it's going to take a lot more than an interfered with election and this joke of a president and all this nonsense that have us give up, not after the history we have, not after the greatest generation, not after the founding fathers. We got a lot, we got a lot of fight left in us as Americans, and they don't get it, and that's why we're going to win. Thank you. I appreciate it. It's awesome. All right, Jared. Hi, my name is malachi, and I was wondering if you were going to add any middle school content soon? If you want to start a middle school turning point USA chapter, that's right. You want to do that? Yes, so we have a great question. We're working on curriculum. We're working on some things through turning point academy. We're going to have some big announcements soon. Actually, with a church in Phoenix, Arizona, that's going to be really exciting. We're going to have Christian biblical curriculum Christian biblical economic teaching that if the lord decides to bless it, can maybe be outsourced to schools across the country. There's a lot of people doing curriculum. We're not going to try to duplicate anything. But I think that there is a unique need for Christian based civic education right now that really makes a good defense of America and from a Christian and biblical worldview. And that includes 6 7th and 8th grade as well. And I tell parents this, look, our podcast and we'll talk about our podcast at the end of this conversation. Never a swear word, I always kind of warn parents ahead of time if they're sensitive topics. 6, 7th and 8th graders, I think should be listening to our podcast. You can learn a lot. News of the day. And I think it would actually make you more informed and better understanding what's happening in the world around you. So awesome. God bless you, malachi. Yeah, it's awesome. Thanks for being here. As a follow-up. And I just turned 11 today and I'm wondering if you have any books besides the Bible that I are good for me to read? That's a great question. So 11 years old. I'll give you a couple of good books. So when you're 11 to 15, parents should be getting their kids to read a lot of biographies because kid needs kids and these heroes. Biographies are great ways to be able to get kids to believe that their life can have meaning and to rep because at that age of life they really need someone to kind of look up to. Find a good biography on Winston Churchill, who's the greatest man to live in the 20th century, a story of pure will and we all live freer today. Thanks to Winston Churchill. For 11 years old, if you can get through it, mere Christianity is a great book. If you can get, I think you're smart. So you could do that. And then I would also recommend the founders Bible, which is a phenomenal Bible that my great friends gave me, which is a way to read the Bible and also have some historical knowledge throughout. If you're willing and able for it and your parents are okay with it because there are some sensitive and suggestive scenes, 1984 and Brave New World, but those are a little bit more adult books at times, but they'll teach you a lot about tyranny and I'll turn you into an ultra patriot, very, very quick. And ultra mega patriots. Ultra mega open. That's right. It's not the craziest thing. Oh my goodness. I was like, yeah, that's what I am. That's what I put that on a shirt. I love.

"Truth. And I could tell you that your question is so good because Republican politicians take you for granted. They think they can kind of raise a bunch of money and wink and not be like, yeah, I'm going to say the right things to the grassroots, when in reality, they're so distant from your actual values, right? And so I think that it's beyond necessary and it's time that the grassroots gets the information. So you guys can make the best decisions. And the final thing I'll say is get involved in your primaries, everybody. Your primaries are so unbelievable. You guys just had crimes. I don't know. I don't know how they worked out. I hope they worked out favorably, but okay. Cool. Jared. Hi. My name is Laurie. And I am a hoosier who moved North Carolina. So how do I find my courageous church? Because I can't find one. So I'm sorry. I need that courageous church. How can I find so you live here in Indiana? No, now I live in North Carolina. I know where to go. I was gonna say like, hello. I'm sorry. North of Wilmington topsail island. I can't believe you. Okay, I don't know anyone in that specific area. I have some great ones in Charlotte, some great ones in Boone. We'll connect to those. So this is part of that's what I want so we're developing, we haven't been doing a year, Jared is doing a great job with us. And so at TPUSA faith is we want to have just a directory of vetted churches that you could find. And people are messaging me. And I respond really quickly on my podcast where they say, what's the great church in Albuquerque? Steve, some other man's church. How about Phoenix, Arizona? I got a long list, and it's amazing that sometimes they live 5 minutes away and they had no idea. And so we'll definitely get you connected with one. I don't know one off the top of my head in that particular area, but we have at least ten good churches and other parts of North Carolina that I know dream city has won an Asheville. I know that's quite a ways. That's the other side, right? Charlotte, we have a couple in Raleigh. But I know I'm just saying that we're building that work and we're strengthening it. But we want to be able to make sure you know the good churches so you could support them with your tides, your time and your offerings. So God bless you. That'd be a good app. Like if you had an app on your phone, like a turning point app, like a church app like your church, yes. I know, right? Yeah. Love it. I'm gonna make, okay, you're higher. Connor, yeah. Okay, because then my understanding of the history and how this country was founded and the sacrifices and the blood that it took to get liberty and justice for all do you believe or think that it's going to be able to be kept or brought back to us peacefully? That's my prayer, and that should be your prayer too. The other side doesn't want that. And so I denounce violence in every form whatsoever because the other side continually tries to provoke us towards it. And I want you to think about it. It's almost as if they're trying to trigger a reaction that the men can trigger a counter reaction to really take our freedoms and liberties away. You can see that with how they react to the January 6th stuff, which they want to create a whole new kind of superstate. I'm going to kind of connect it to the moms for liberty. My celebrity, wonderful organization, where they literally go and show up at school board meetings to complain about curriculum. And they said in the memo, the national school board association of America memo. They wanted Joe Biden to use the military police and to go send in the National Guard to school board meetings because they were so worried that parents were complaining about curriculum. Now, if they want to keep things peaceful, why would you want to bring the military police to school board meetings? Go a step further. One of the leaders from moms for liberty, was it wasn't you. Okay. No, okay. I want to make sure I get okay. That was literally spied on by the Department of Justice, is using threat assessment tags because they showed up at a school board meeting. So there's very, very malevolent and pernicious and dark activity happening in the top levels of our government. Let me tell you what, the other side, I think, wants to try to provoke us so that they can use force against us. I believe, though, that our greatest asset is what God gave us, which is our ability to speak, to have dialog in the beginning, there was the word the word is actually rational speech and the word was God the word was with God and the word became God. I believe that our greatest hope is to win people over using our capacity to persuade and to convince and have better arguments. They're the ones that continuously have to use force against us. We're the ones that could win people over when they hear our arguments and our ideas. So you ask me, do I think it can happen peacefully? Yes, I do. In fact, I believe that I don't want it to happen because no one wants that, okay? In any way, shape or form to happen any other way besides that. At least they won final point on this.

"And gratitude. I love it. I have a feeling you're going to be a Professor of hillsdale college here pretty soon. So that's a professor that didn't go to college. I think it's amazing. It's amazing. All right, hey, let's start here, Connor, who do you got? Is it Adam? Hey, Adam, what's up, buddy? Good, good. All right, this is what my color do you have? The yellow one? Okay. Is that yellow mic on there, Carl? Yep. Can you hear me now? Yep. My question is, in a state like the one you grew up like Illinois. It's very, very clear who the people who are fighting are values are. They typically have a D next to their name. But in states like ours, everybody likes to call themselves a Republican. So my question for you is, how do you tell the difference between a rhino and a patriot? I feel like that's a joke coming. I don't know how to tell a difference between a patriot doesn't go to Davos. Yeah. You should. Yeah, so look, there's a checklist, right? So they'll talk a good game on guns, which by the way, I just want to say what an unbelievable horrific tragedy in Texas ruined my day, honestly, the last 24 hours. For such unspeakable evil. And just the immediate political Robert Francis o'rourke starts interrupting the PRES. I mean, these people are so despicable, honestly. Like that's basically they're giving a eulogy and a funeral and they interrupt it for political purposes. And so it should be a time of national morning and they immediately go into a political posture. It's so disgusting and so good. But yes, I mean, Republicans will talk a good game on guns. They'll talk a good game on these things, but there are certain issues. Well, they'll really kind of go back. And a couple of them that you kind of spot check on is, you know, how do they feel on mandatory vaccines? How do they feel on lockdowns? These are ways to flush out the rhino, right? To get them from behind the brush. Oh, now I see you. Will they admit that there is a globalist force trying to squeeze the American way of life? Do they pander to every need want and concern of corporations? Or do they just kind of give you open ended platitudes and one liners that always kind of sound good? Are they willing to say that when it comes down to it, they will defy the federal government and Joe Biden to protect their voters? Or they're just going to kind of go back to cushy type of sound bites. So this is something that our political vehicle, again, we have TPUSA faith here, which is a 5 O one, but we have a political vehicle, turning point action and turning point pack, where we're going to be heavily involved now in the vetting of candidates. And I think this is very necessary where I was there are some great and this is not a slide against any organization. They do wonderful work. But I think better work can be done of giving you the information of the good candidates. And because I have no I have no vested interest, I don't go to D.C.. I don't lobby for stuff because a lot of these organizations are always lobbying. It's weird, right? They rate the candidates and they lie. I don't do that. I don't care. I just want to make sure you guys can make good decisions. And give you the honest truth..

"Okay, we are going to, we're going to open it up for some questions for Charlie, because Charlie, I mean, one of the best on his feet kind of thinkers in speakers in this nation. So we want to kind of just give you a chance to come down and share ask a question, let Charlie share his heart on that issue. So not all at once, but if you would like to do that, we got Connor down here. We've got Jared right there and they're just at some point just come on down and we'll get to questions here so you can start doing that now. While they're doing that, hit on this point real quick for me. We hear all the time in the media Charlie that America is a fundamentally racist nation. I love how you defend America and her history and you make a great argument for what has happened to racism since America was founded. Yeah, I mean, thank you for saying that. I spend a lot of time reading history of our founding fathers, and I get really defensive of them actually. They were unbelievable people. We're the least racist country ever to exist in the history of the world. That's right. We have a supply and demand problem with racism in America. We have an incredible demand to try to find the race, the race crimes, hoaxes, which they are hosted. But yet there's such an unbelievable low supply that there's kind of a cottage industry of creating your own race hate crimes and try to make them popular. And what world do you have a problem with racism where someone like Jussie Smollett tries to come up with their own race crime? Do you think they were doing that with the KKK and the antebellum south where they were coming? There was plenty of actual legitimate racism at the time. So let's kind of go through all of their kind of accusations. First of all, let's realize I'm recognized what we have. The fact that we're a multiracial, multi ethic, ethnic, multicultural society, and we get along as well as we do in our country's unbelievable. The fact that we've been able to bring people from every corner of the world and we get along really, really well, despite what you kind of see on CNN and on television is a remarkable accomplishment. And so let's go back to the founding fathers, common kind of incantation that they'll say is that the founding fathers were super racist. They own slaves, therefore they're not worthy of study or appreciation. Well, something we all have in common as human beings is you're all born into a world you did not create. And every single one of the founding fathers was born into a world where slavery was everywhere. And then they had a couple of choices to make. And they started to think very deeply about this. And thanks to the writings of the Declaration of Independence, the movement of the abolitionist slavery began. Vermont about slavery in 1777, the first state to do so. In 1775, it was the first antislavery convention ever held in the history of the world chaired by Benjamin Franklin. By the time the constitution was ratified in 1787, 9 out of 13 of the original states or colonies had already independently abolished slavery. We right here, believe it or not, where we're sitting is in the northwest territories. Well, you speak about the northwest territories. What I mean by that is there was a there was an act of Congress in 1787 called the northwest ordinance. It had several articles. Now article 6 of the northwest ordinance said the following that every single square mile or acre of the northwest ordinance would be free of slavery, and it was passed by every single state. 13 to nothing unanimously. When they were thinking about expansion of new lands, they knew new lands must be free and not slave. Now, think about this. If you're expanding new lands, isn't that a projection of your values? A projections of what you believe get 13 colonies agreed that the northwest territories have now what is Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Minnesota would be slave free. Not to mention Thomas Jefferson signed a moratorium of importation of new slaves in March of 1807. The practice of slavery was starting to be decoupled. It's such a great extent thanks to the abolition movements of William wilberforce in Britain that the British Empire actually used their own troops to enforce the abolition of the slave trade by going on arresting slave traders all throughout the 18 teens and 1820s. John Quincy Adams, America's 6th president only served one term. He was such a focused abolitionist that after he lost the presidential election Andrew Jackson that he went to go run for Congress so they had to come up with a new rule in Congress that you could not introduce the same bill every single day, which was a bill to abolish slavery. He was so focused on it. Now, of course, we had a Civil War. We fought a war to end slavery, hundreds of thousands, 600,000 Americans died to be able to abolish slavery, but let's just kind of take a step backwards and understand where we're living today. There are more slaves right now on the planet than any other time in human history. The fact you end slavery is a big deal. Why did we end slavery? We ended slavery because the courage and the heroism, the bravery, and the moral clarity of the founding fathers. When they were born slavery was everywhere. When they died in the 1820s, slavery was largely on the way out and was abolished in the vast majority of the population in North America. That's something that's worthy of study, appreciation,.

"Tell you this, college can be the right solution for some young people. If you know why you're going for an affordable way and you really know what you believe and you're not going to be susceptible to all their indoctrination. But let me tell you bad reasons to go to college. My parents are making, that's an awful reason. Like, oh, I'm going to figure out along the way. Why? What are you going to figure out exactly? If you go to college, you try to find what you're going to study, you're going to lose something along the way. You're going to lose those kind of values you're raised with. And so people say, well, Charlie, what would you do to replace it? Well, I took a gap year. It's been a gap decade now, and started an organization. God blessed it along the way. It's been amazing. But for parents out there, I just want to try to challenge you to try to not make your child going to college about you. If you're afraid to turn to your neighbor and say that, hey, Johnny's not going to college. If you're afraid to say that because of the social stigma or the looks or the people like, huh, then it's more about you than it is about the child. And I could tell you this, out of all of our we have over a 100,000 donors at turning point USA. Most of which are over the age of 50. And the letters I get daily from parents saying I wish I would have never sent my kid to college. They won't talk to me. They don't share my values. They don't believe in God. They're unhappy. It's happening every day, everybody. So just be very careful. And I'm afraid people aren't talking about this enough. It's like this automatic almost we must send them no matter what. And then so we need more trades, we need all these sorts of different things. But there's also there's also just kind of this idea. I mean, there's like two good schools left in the country. Hillsdale is one of them. It's good. I grew up in hillsville by the way. Did you really? Yeah, yeah. The great hillsdale college, they did an amazing job, they did. Even though schools that used to be good, like growth cities, no good anymore. They've gone totally woke. What was the second? What was the second college? It depends. Liberty's pretty good. That's pretty good. I'm sure I'm forgetting when someone's excited. But I mean, there's a couple once peppered across regent. You're right. Your region's good. That's right. Michelle bachmann's there now. She does a good job. And so besides that, though, it's a vast minority of schools. Let me just kind of close with this, which is you must know why you're sending your kid to college, how you're educating them, but understand it starts even younger. The indoctrination starts in high school. It starts in middle school. It starts in the fundamental value shaping of social media and all that. And so look, my first immediate goal. If we had 20 to 30% less kids going to college, America would be a much freer and better place to live. And so the goal that I would have is having a lot of people not go to college and to learn to actually do something useful because we have a whole generation of young people that borrowed money they don't have to study things that don't matter to find jobs that don't exist, and they say, hey Charlie, you know, I got this degree in lesbian archery. And I don't know. I don't know why I can't find a job. Okay, okay, hold on a second. I have to ask, is that come on? Is that really a thing? Come on. Is that like underwater? That you can't immediately dismiss. Oh, this is why China's winning. So yeah, okay, well, okay, what we're going to do now though on that note, that was amazing. I love that. I'm going to use that one..

"Okay. So about education, right? So let's start with college. College can be a great thing for some young people. It could be a terrible thing for some young people. This is the third rail of American life that everyone kind of gets really nervous about that no one wants to say out loud. But it just needs to be repeated. College is a scam for most young people. It is a scam. And let me be very clear. I prefaced at saying, I love learning. That's one of the reasons why we need to be honest about college. Let's start with one. The national graduation rate is 59%. 41% of people that go to college do not graduate. All of you know at least a couple people that went to college and dropped out. They never should have gone to college in the first place. Meanwhile, we have a record deficit of Carpenter's electricians, plumbers, welders, entrepreneurs, police officers, firefighters. Why? Answer. It's because most suburban moms don't want their kids to work with their hands. It's true. It's considered you failed as a parent and an upper middle class society if your kid ends up working construction. It's a stigma, and you know it's true. We ask our high school seniors, hey, where are you going to college? Not why are you going to college? If most parents even understood in iota, a fraction of the kind of Russian roulette with the values that will happen when you send your kid to college, they would be flabbergasted. The number one piece of reaction I travel, as you mentioned 330 days a year, I meet a lot of people. They say Charlie, I have four kids, half of them share my values. I said, where do they go to college? And they said, oh, I thought that Purdue was this great school. I thought IU is another thing against them, you know, as an institution, but their indoctrination factories. They are. And you will play Russian roulette with these kids. These values, Notre-Dame and as well, Michigan, U of I, the University of Illinois. And so the question is, what is the redeemable value of these colleges? It's increasingly less. People say, well, you need the piece of paper because it was, oh, so it's a credentialing exercise, which it is. I mean, you want to know why colleges are so devoid of wisdom, well, because there's no God. But God, there is no wisdom. The beginning of wisdom begins with a fear of the lord. And so let's just, and by the way, this is the title of my upcoming book, which is very vanilla title called the college scam. If I was a college professor, I would actually use that book in my classroom. Which they're happy to buy a bunch. So all proceeds, by the way, the book go to turning point USA, which is great. That will really bother him. So it's a ten count indictment. But let's just start with one that's every bad idea that you find to be reprehensible start of the college campus. Men can become pregnant, college campus, no difference in men and women, college campus, defund the police college campus. Critical theory critical race theory, critical theory, college campus. These are the incubators and the validators of every single bad idea in society. Why is this the least church generation in the history of America? Because in college campuses with evangelistic zeal, they tell your children and grandchildren not to believe in God and pleasure is the ultimate pursuit. Now, I didn't go to college, so people say, how dare you talk about all this? Well, look, on the best and worst person to be able to talk about college, because I could talk about how you could actually do something in your life without having to go to college. But also, I'm a little bit of a subject matter expert because I've spoken over a 150 college in the last decade. We have an organization on over 750 college campuses. And I've spoke from Berkeley to Boulder to Stanford at UCLA to Brown to marquette and live to tell about it all across the country. And so, but let me.

"The man, I love it. So you're an academia a lot. I mean, that's kind of your Wheelhouse. You seen colleges really push this left leaning agenda. You've seen it now trickle down into high schools and even middle schools in elementary schools. What is going on? We've got a lot of young people in the audience right now or watching over at this is being streamed over at our life church Noblesville campus as well. And we know that there's a group of students over there watching, they're getting ready to step out into this. What would you tell them saying, okay, this is what you're going to hit when you go to college, or maybe you're in a high school right now, even in Hamilton county in the central Indiana. We are seeing radical nonsensical ideology being pushed down the throats of our children, totally void of their parents, okay. And students or parents are being told to get out of the school board rooms. Don't tell us what you think mom and dad, this is not your job to teach the kids. Let us do whatever we do with your kid for 8 hours a day and you don't get a right to say what you want us to do. And what would you say to the students that are getting ready to step out into the parents that are in that situation right now? How do we combat this, Charlie? Yeah, so let me just first make some positive and then I'm going to indict college because that's kind of what I do. So just be a lifelong learner. Okay. You don't need to go to college to learn the amazing part of where we are and the world is you can listen to podcasts, take online courses from hillsdale college, read books, to be a lifelong learner, the more quote, which many of you know, the more I know, the more I realize how little I know when I thought I knew it all. And that's something that we should all embrace, which is my favorite part of my day is when I turn my phone on airplane mode, and I do my two hours of learning. Hillsdale course is Victor Davis Hanson article. Whatever it is, I love diving into there's two types of knowledge, right? There's practical knowledge, and then there's eternal knowledge, practical knowledge is who's the governor of Michigan, who's the governor of Indiana. These are things that can change. Eternal knowledge is knowledge of things that never change. They'll be true today. They'll be true 200 years from now, and they are two to a hundred years prior. You turn on knowledge is rooted in the Bible, which of course we call wisdom. Eternal knowledge is wisdom. Our schools almost never touch on eternal knowledge and they're hyper focused on practical knowledge, okay? So I just want to just first say, please, for the students out there, the parents out there, the lifelong learners. If you want to fight for liberty, and I see the great moms for liberty shirt up front, they do a wonderful job. Such a good job, by the way, they're targeted by the FBI. That's how good of a job. And I'll get to that in a second. It's unbelievable what's happened is that if you want to protect liberty, you must make learning one of your top priorities. And this kind of surprises people because like, oh, Charlie got it all figured out. Like, do you know everything about the world health assembly and the World Economic Forum? Do you know everything that they're doing? The World Economic Forum, our governor just went there two days ago. And just so you know, yeah, there were a lot of people like, what the heck is Indiana's governor doing? I didn't know that, but I didn't. I didn't know that he vetoed the transgender Bill. Oh my God. Which, by the way, they overturned his veto, I believe. Which is awesome. And he's a Republican. I have gone after your governor. He's a waste of time. And so you go to the World Economic Forum, you're whining and dining amongst some of the most evil and terrible people to planet has to offer. And it's just unbelievable. Davos, Switzerland, these go read the great reset. So your governor, I don't even know that. It's amazing. Is rubbing elbows amongst people with their stated goals are saying you'll own nothing and you'll be happy. America will no longer be the world's superpower in western values will be to a breaking point. Those are the goals of the World Economic Forum. And so can't quite imagine what that would be all about. But to the point is that I want to kind of go a level deeper, which is you want to protect liberty, you have to learn..

"Hey, this is summer for us here, man. Okay, this is awesome weather outside. I'm being completely stereotypical and accurate by the way. So, but if that's more important to you. Oh yes, go on. Go on. Micah aside in those people. Should leave the ministry. I mean, which is that you are not in the ministry to get Instagram likes or social media followers or to go sell books, you're there to proclaim truth or that will bring people closer to ultimate meaning. And I'm afraid that the church far too often has become this kind of celebrity contest of people that are always trying to joust what the world thinks and not what the word says. So the complicit church requires in my personal opinion, direct challenging from the body of Christ and asking these pastors. Wow, wow. It'd be better if you said nothing than you said all this nonsense. And I could go through the names of these pastors and there are these national pastors that do this. And it's so disappointing. And unfortunately, so the most amount of churches are cowardly, then complicit, and then courageous. And so my heart at TPUSA faith is try to make the courageous more empowered and to grow more courageous pastors and more courageous churches in any way we possibly can try to shrink the complicit and try to shrink the cowardly because courage begets courage, right? But here's the thing. Here's how I know that we're trending the right way. The last two years lockdowns, you know, all these different things, the churches that have taken stances on these issues. The ones that have decided to proclaim the truth and not care about the cost in an ironic paradoxical way, their ties have gone up and their membership have gone up, and I could tell you, it is the rule in every corner of the country. We've seen that at life church. It's been amazing. I know pastora McCoy has seen that. I mean, God has blessed our church in amazing ways, ties gone up the membership has gone up. We've seen churches are closing their doors right now in our community, and we're looking around and be like, this has been an amazing season of growth for us. And I think it's because pastor Nathan just said, I'm not going to sit idly by and stay quiet because the world's telling me to be quiet. And that's what's driving, gotta spirit is being poured out on those types of churches. Amen. And the church has to be the place where the body goes for answers. So when the church is cowardly or quiet or silent, then the mom that is right here in this audience right now that gets the question from your 15 year old that just saw TikTok videos saying, hey, why is it wrong that you can choose your gender again? And you go to your pastor in the past, sorry, we don't do that around here. That is a failure to your congregation. Church needs to have the boldness and the ability and the knowledge to go to that mom and say, let me tell you what. Let me tell you what the scriptures say about gender, let me know what the scientific data shows about gender dysphoria. Let me tell you about how just because you feel something, it doesn't mean you are something about how it says in the scriptures your heart will actually lead you astray and so this is where I think the church has an opportunity and if the mom who goes to the pastor doesn't get it from the pastor, she'll go somewhere else. She'll go to some weird like Oprah Winfrey self help book or something. Seriously, some sort of like eastern Buddhist meditative podcast or something. No, seriously. Or she'll go to the view. Yeah, exactly. And. Which is a very real thing, which is they're going to seek counsel somewhere. And so look, there's an intentional spirit of confusion that is trying to come across our land right now. And I think pastors and churches are seeing one of the great opportunities to lead the lost and lead the confused towards truth and towards the natural law and anchor them to reality uncertainty..

"I love your understanding of the American church because you've really traveled this nation. I mean, every corner of this nation, you go, I mean, 330 days a year. You are on the road going to places in America. You said something in one of your podcasts, podcasts, not too long ago, about three types of churches. Yes. And I want you to hit on that because you're seeing this, I think I felt this as a pastor for many years. I'm like, oh my goodness, when you laid it out the way you did I said, yes, that's exactly what I noticed ten years ago was happening. And for you to kind of put words to it, it made my heart leap out of my chest. Could you explain to us about the three churches that you're seeing? Yeah, so there's three types of churches. It's the three C's and we'll go through it and I'm going to say this rather bluntly and plainly. You know my heart. If I offend you, sorry, I guess. We're not going to be honest. We're running out of time. It's political correct stuff's a bunch of garbage, okay? So look, number one, let's start with the good, the courageous church. Good pastors like Micah. He's doing amazing job pastors at our standing up for truth. Now, the courageous church is willing to stand up against government lockdowns and tyranny. The courageous church is willing to instruct their congregation about all the decisions they have to make. How do I marry? Who do I May or marry? How do I organize my finances? Who do I vote for? Is it a good or bad thing that I'm gambling? The church must do equip the congregation, the flock, with answers about all of these otherwise confusing issues. The courageous church does not care what The New York Times says. The courageous church does not care about what the activists say. The courageous church doesn't care if people walk out of sermons because you might have said something they don't like. A courageous church does not look at success through budgets and buildings, which the most of the American church does, by the way. Instead, they say, how many souls are we winning? Are we proclaiming truth? The courageous churches the vast minority of churches in America. And just like courage in general is very hard to find. The courageous church is a growing but small community and we're trying to help grow that at TPUSA faith. The second type of church is the cowardly church. They're the church that knows what they should do, but they don't do it. And they'll say the following couple of excuses. We only do the gospel around here. So do I. And I believe the gospel is about creating disciples, not converts of all nations. And discipleship goes deep. Discipleship means you're going to quit people to make good decisions in every arena of life, including what kind of government you're going to have. Don't tell me it's unimportant. Don't tell me it doesn't matter. More people have died from bad government last hundred years than anything else. So if you don't care about government, a lot of suffering can happen as we as Christians to try to limit suffering. We should care for the least amongst us. If you have bad government oppressive government tyrannical government, look what happened in the last couple of years. The lockdowns, the suicides, the mental health issues that are all byproducts of bad government policy and the type of system that we had. The cowardly church and here's my call for a lot of you. If you have a pastor, if you are a pastor here in this audience, that refuses to speak out at all about these issues. I want to challenge you because you can make a decision immediately to go from the cowardly to the courageous. And for those of you that might be on an elder board, you might be tithing to a church and you're like, man, I'm not getting it out of my pastor. They're quiet on this. They say the Bible doesn't say anything about abortion. They haven't mentioned roe V wade. They don't communicate about this stuff. They won't do what July 4th service about the brilliance and the magic and the exceptional nature of how God gave us the gift of America. They won't even dare do anything to honor our veterans, then you got to go challenge that cowardly pastor. Do it lovingly and directly and compassionately, but ask for a coffee, ask for a meeting and look that pastor in the eyes, and you can listen to our library of podcasts and videos to give you the information necessary. But have the conviction to do it and be like, hey, why don't you do a July 4th service, just to say thank you, lord, we live in the free as greatest country ever. Why don't you do that? And don't give me this whole thing about, well, you know, we only do the gospel. It says Philippines for it, whatever is good, whatever is true, whatever is beautiful. Think on these things. America is good. And it's worth you appreciation and praise. And thanks to the lord, because we're stewards of this nation. The cowardly pastor cares more about the budgets and whether or not he offends a vast minority of people rather than proclaiming truth to the body that's so sorely needs it right now. And I just want to just kind of challenge that cowardly pastor and say, where is your line? Because there are 1415 year olds right now in high schools that are being taught. There's no difference in a man and a woman. There's 11 year olds that are being prescribed puberty blockers that will do irreversible damage because of these lies that are being pushed forward. If the church won't say clearly what a man and what a woman is, why do we expect secular society to do that? The church must lead on these issues. Not to mention, as we are now knocking on the doorsteps of a goal that would have otherwise seemed unreachable, which is the reversal of roe versus wade after the slaughter of innocent life over the last 40 or 50 years. Passengers need to be leaning in to this issue and educating on it properly. So that's the cowardly. Now, believe it or not, there's an even worse category. Which is I yearn for the cowardly over this, which is the complicit. The complicit church is the one that has the LGBT flag outside of their church. You all know what I'm talking about. It's the church that has the BLM flag. They were quick to go mobilize their congregation to fight systemic racism, whatever that is, but they remain quiet when it comes to the issues of the transgender or the unborn. Or they won't take controversial stands unless it's been approved by all the right media members. They're the ones that say that Jesus would want you to take the vaccine. You've all heard these sermons. They're complicit with the narrative and the agenda. Now these pastors, I'll be very honest. I'm working on this. I'm very honest about my shortcomings, okay? No, I'm not sure. We all deserve forgiveness. I have very little patience for these people. And so patience is not one of your spiritual gifts. I do stuff, okay? I've got to be honest, right? Which is like the gloves kind of come off. Like if you're in the ministry, like just outwardly spreading lies for Instagram likes because you're some kind of weird like skinny Jean wearing like TED Talk pastor. Okay, I was gonna say it. Okay. All right, you're fine. No, no. I have some skinny. They always give me a hard time on Sunday. Skinny legs, not skinny jeans, okay? I'm sorry. He passes the test tonight. It was right on the line. And the no sock thing is very questionable, but that's okay..

Charlie Recaps the Three Types of Churches

"You explain to us about the three churches that you're seeing? Yeah, so there's three types of churches. It's the three C's and we'll go through it and I'm going to say this rather bluntly and plainly. You know my heart. If I offend you, sorry, I guess. We're not going to be honest. We're running out of time. It's political correct stuff's a bunch of garbage, okay? So look, number one, let's start with the good, the courageous church. Good pastors like Micah. He's doing amazing job pastors at our standing up for truth. Now, the courageous church is willing to stand up against government lockdowns and tyranny. The courageous church is willing to instruct their congregation about all the decisions they have to make. How do I marry? Who do I May or marry? How do I organize my finances? Who do I vote for? Is it a good or bad thing that I'm gambling? The church must do equip the congregation, the flock, with answers about all of these otherwise confusing issues. The courageous church does not care what The New York Times says. The courageous church does not care about what the activists say. The courageous church doesn't care if people walk out of sermons because you might have said something they don't like. A courageous church does not look at success through budgets and buildings, which the most of the American church does, by the way. Instead, they say, how many souls are we winning? Are we proclaiming truth? The courageous churches the vast minority of churches in America. And just like courage in general is very hard to find. The courageous church is a growing but small community and we're trying to help grow that at TPUSA faith. The second type of church is the cowardly church. They're the church that knows what they should do, but they don't do it. And they'll say the following couple of excuses. We only do the gospel around here. So do I. And I believe the gospel is about creating disciples, not converts of all nations. And discipleship goes deep. Discipleship means you're going to quit people to make good decisions in every arena of life, including what kind of government you're going to have. Don't tell me it's unimportant. Don't tell me it doesn't matter. More people have died from bad government last hundred years than anything else. So if you don't care about government, a lot of suffering can happen as we as Christians to try to limit suffering. We should care for the least amongst us. If you have bad government oppressive government tyrannical government, look what happened in the last couple of years. The lockdowns, the suicides, the mental health issues that are all byproducts of bad government policy and the type of system that we had. The cowardly church and here's my call for a lot of you. If you have a pastor, if you are a pastor here in this audience, that refuses to speak out at all about these issues. I want to challenge you because you can make a decision immediately to go from the cowardly to the courageous.

"Can you tell the story real quick? I didn't know this until you were speaking tonight over at the church. And the meet and greet and you said something that blew my mind, you liked Indiana so much that what did you do? Yes, so it's interesting. On a technical basis, this is true. If you just look at any of our turning point USA, 9 90 forms. So Illinois was becoming increasingly oppressive and authoritarian. And I wasn't really trusting who was running the Illinois government for good reason. I think you would all agree. And so I started to see some behavior from people across the country targeting groups like project veritas or targeting the pro life groups in California from state based attorney generals. And I was like, I don't want this to happen in Illinois. So I called one of my board members. I said, we need to go and change our headquarters to a friendly state. And he's like, all right, where I said, well, Indiana obviously, right? So if you look at our turning point USA 9 90 forms, we're headquartered in crown point Indiana, if anyone's asking, actually. So amazing. And it was because of attorney general Curtis hill because it was a sane constitutional defender that actually believed in the rule of law. And so it's great to be home, I guess. So how cool is that? And our offices are in Phoenix, Arizona, but like many people, I was like, I don't feel comfortable in Illinois. So we got out pretty quickly. But Indiana's always had the hardest working people, Midwestern work ethic, amazing values, very, very well run state, and I think that Indiana needs to continue to push back against Washington, D.C., this woke nonsense that's happening in our country. We'll talk about that. You asked about kind of why I do what I do. I gave my life to the lord in 5th grade, and it was the most important decision I made in my life. I have always had a heart for liberty, and I've never liked bullies, and especially I don't like tyrants that have a lot of power. That people then give them. And so I've always kind of been trying to push back against that my entire life. When I grew up, I was told in the church that politics and religion must be separate. I'm sure a lot of you have heard this or go to churches where this is kind of taught. And that's okay, because I believe that for a long time, I always had my political views when I started turning point USA on June of 2012. I was a Christian, but I always made sure to make it separate. Like I would never blur the two things together. I would never mention them. And I really kind of had all of that challenge when I met my now pastor rob McCoy that you mentioned, where I realized that if we're talking about what is right and wrong, we're talking about morals. We're talking about values. We're talking about truth. How is that separate than our faith? In fact, it's in harmony with our faith. Because our faith instructs what is good, what is moral and what is true. And so then I was told by many pastors before, you know, nowhere in the Bible, does it say you should get involved in politics nowhere in the Bible you should do this? And that's just not true. And Jeremiah 29 7, it says, you must demand the welfare of the nation or the city that you are in because your welfare is tied to your nation's welfare. That's the lord speaking to the people of Israel. And some pastors will say, oh, nowhere in the Bible, are there people that got involved in politics? Well, then what do you do with Esther mordecai nehemiah, Jeremiah Daniel, or Joseph, just to name a few all throughout the scriptures. There are people that are God's chosen people trying to influence secular government for his purpose. And in fact, we as Christians are called with salt and light in every arena. And that includes whether or not we're going to talk about government. And so I'm very clear about what matters most. We must always, we must always prioritize our time, our treasure, our resources, in a series of hierarchies. We as Christians believe in that. The ultimate most important thing, the most important thing we can do in our life is accept Jesus Christ as our lord and savior and get other people to do that as well. That's the most important thing we do. And so, but my day job is the second most important thing. What I do my three podcasts a day on when I do my radio show and I visit college campuses so you don't have to. It's about the second most important thing. Which is to make sure you could do the first thing. That if we act as if politics mean nothing, we act as if government means nothing, then we're all going to be sharing our theological opinions from prison. And that's not an over exaggeration. And all throughout the scriptures, there is a theme where God's heart for his people is to set us free. Liberty is not man's idea. It's God's idea. He does not want you to be a slave to addiction. He does not want me to be controlled by a tyrant. Jesus came here to set us free and God's heart for us here on earth is not to live under despotic tyrants or authoritarians that are telling us how to live our life, how to worship how to make choices or decisions. Liberty is the pursuit of virtue. And so I believe at this time, this all times are different. This particular time we as Christians have a moral obligation to fight for liberty against tyranny and rise up in a must start in the church. Amen. Hey, do you want to come to our church on Sunday and just preach for me? Because I feel like you can do an amazing job. I'm like, yes. Yes, this is amazing. Okay,.

"The tragedy of all day, we're going to learn more as the days progress and Joe Biden is such a he's such a bad person. He really is. I don't say that lightly. I wish he was just a buffoon. But he, he's got something in him and that motivates him that is just about power and is about. It's about something that isn't about being president of the United States. So he had an opportunity to unite the country and to mourn and not overly politicize. Yesterday. Instead, he went right into DNC talking points, anti gun grabbing kind of sound bites. And I mean, I was traveling yesterday. I was doing a couple of things. We're going to be in Indiana tonight, by the way. And so I didn't really have I've watched zero cable news. Zero, since yesterday, and I encourage you to do that in times of mass tragedy like this, let's go to talk radio, listen to podcasts. I think it'll actually give you more clarity because cable news is just really trying to provoke a reaction with these things. It's life church is what it's called in Indiana, life church will be there with Micah beckwith. But Joe Biden went right in. Joe Biden said, look, I now we need to pass gun laws. We need to pass the assault weapon ban. Joe Biden did not miss a beat or an opportunity to try and resurrect his plummeting poll numbers to politically capitalize on the blood and the suffering and the tragedy of what happened Yuval day. And yes, I am accusing Joe Biden of politicizing this immediately. There is no other interpretation of it. The beginning of his speech was just fine. It was standard boilerplate, presidential speech, trying to be magnanimous, fine, no problem with that. But then when you start to go in and you start to recite one by one by one, trying to all of a sudden broaden this to be something that it isn't. That like the deer and Kevlar vests talking point, which they think sounds really good, but they just make fools of themselves when they do it. Hear it for yourself. Play cut 61. I am sick and tired of it. We have to act and don't tell me we can't have an impact on this carnage. I spent my career as a senator and a vice president working to pass common sense gun laws. We will prevent every tragedy, but we know they work and have positive impact. When we pass the assault weapons ban, mass shootings went down when the law expired, mass shootings, tripled. He's doing everything he possibly can. To demagogue the issue. Now, those numbers are incredibly, let's just say. Untrue and blurred, we'll get into all of the facts. So, I mean, I don't like this, but we're gonna have to do this every couple of years after MSD marjory Stoneman Douglas, in Parkland, Florida, after sandy hook, we have to go dust off all of the arguments that we make to try to push back against the gun grabbers. I wish there was a moment where you say, wow, that was really terrible. That person was basically the closest thing to a demon you're ever going to see. That's evil. It's something that you can't even comprehend. Can we have like a couple days to maybe just mourn and to process this? No, I have to immediately now go back into a gun control debate. Fine, I just, I don't do it willingly, I do it reluctantly because I feel as if that's not the way human being should process tragedy. But if that's the case, then Joe Biden, then we're going to get back into the debate. We're going to defend our Second Amendment rights. We're going to add prudence and we are going to add reason and cross examination of actually where the majority of gun crime happens in America. The majority of gun crime actually happens in urban areas in gang related activity and even if you look at all the gun crime in America 33,000 gun deaths on average a year, 66% of them are deaths by suicide that are counted as gun deaths were the only country in the industrialized world that does that. If this is now what we have to do, which it looks like we will, then buckle up everybody, those of us that love the constitution, we're going to now get back in and I want Joe Biden to answer why $40 billion to Ukraine was a higher priority than hiring armed guards at schools and having single point of entry. Why, why is it that we're sending $40 billion to Ukraine, but no one thought, hey, maybe our schools are sitting ducks for maniacs that can go in and lock themselves and kill 19 children. And some people say that's a red herring, two things to run related. They're not. We have said repeatedly on this program. Politicians prioritize with urgent precision what matters to them. And Kyiv has mattered a lot more than elementary school protection having armed guards or having single point entry..
