Has Trump abused his presidential powers?
"Democrats and Republicans think President Trump overstepped his authority this fast weekend when it's an executive orders on extending Corona virus relief after Congress failed to agree on a bill Well, CBS News White House correspondent been Tracy Talked about this this afternoon with anchor Michael Wallace would do. A couple of things are released. The president says they will do a couple of things. He says he is protecting people from eviction, deferring student loans extending for $100 Federal on unemployment benefit and also suspending the payroll tax. But we should say that there are major caveats for all of these for eviction protections. He simply is telling his agencies to review whether or not They should protect people from eviction for the unemployment benefit that $400.25 percent of that has to come from states and we're already hearing from governor saying there's no money to do that. And then on the payroll tax suspension. This is really just referring that tax. You still have to pay it back down the road, and it doesn't help you if you don't have a job, because if you're subject to the payroll tax That means you're getting a paycheck. And then there are many in Congress who are saying they claim this isn't even constitutional. Some of these orders Yes, You basically have a Democrat, saying that across the board, saying, this is unconstitutional. It's Congress that gets to decide funding levels and allocate taxpayer dollars. But you do have some Republicans, including Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse, who came out and called this unconstitutional slop. The president did not like that. He fired back on Twitter, saying that passes a rhino, a Republican in name only and accusing him of going, Roque. Lord of these orders on the constitutionality question. Leave us when it comes to Ah, Corona virus relief. Is there any other talk of trying to get a bill done? Got a question here is if these will be challenged in court, which obviously would slow down any aid that would come of these. But almost everybody in Washington, especially on Capitol Hill believed that at some point they all have to sit down again and hammer out some sort of legislation because even if what the president has done magically works It still doesn't address the issue of funding for schools. It doesn't address any more funding for small businesses for states and local governments, and also the direct payments to families that President Trump And the Democrats. Both say they want by the way, Ben, What are you hearing about the President's plan for his acceptance speech at the Republican Convention. Where is that going to be? Do we know yet? Well, the president has tweeted out again. Ah, kind of teasing of the location of this, He says he has now narrowed it down to two locations. One would be the White House. That's something he has talked about. In recent weeks. The other would be Gettysburg. Pennsylvania, the site obviously of a very famous civil war battle, So we'll see you the president's doing a briefing this afternoon. We'll see if he shed any more light on that. All

The Philippines Becomes Coronavirus Hot Spot In Southeast Asia
"Philippines has over taken in Tunisia as Southeast Asia's Corona virus hot spot even though Indonesia has twice as many people. The Philippines now has more than 136,000 confirmed cases of covert 19 and critics say no coherent strategy for defeating the virus, Michael Sullivan reports. Like other countries in the region, South Korea, Taiwan and Vietnam, For example, the Philippines recorded its first covert case back in January. Those neighbors acted swiftly. They started locking down when they had a few 100 cases and the timeliness of the response was key to the success of Vietnam, Korea and Taiwan University of the Philippines. Covert researcher Ranjeet Rai. They decided to do something significant when they only had relatively few cases, and they were successful with racing and with the isolation very different from the Philippines, where we already had a case in January, and we decided not to do anything about it until March, and it wasn't just the Philippines lock down. That was late health workers say, Dr Tony Luchon. Is a former advisor to the government's covert task force. They started Lee with the AH building up of the health system capacities in terms of testing isolation. And quantum tracing. We wasted so much time about two months instead of trying to build up our infrastructure's adequate testing and contact tracing are still a huge problem, but the lock down that went into effect in March 1 of the longest and most severe in Southeast Asia. Did help reduce the number of new cases until it was lifted in June, when cases started to skyrocket. Over the weekend, the country's medical front liners issued an urgent virtual plea to President Rodrigo did to reimpose the lock down to allow them to regroup. Medical Association president Dr Jose Santiago Jr. Our health care system has bean overlong our head workers are burned out would seemingly endless number of patients trooping to our hospitals for emergency care and ambition. We're waging a losing battle against carbon 19 President Duterte. His initial response was less than empathetic, accusing the health workers of inciting a revolution against his government. You will give me the free ticket. The state's a counterrevolution. How I wish you would do it. The next day, he retreated and ordered a new 15 day locked down. But it's not a stringent is the first public transportation has been stopped. But businesses and retail outlets Khun operated half capacity in an effort to both halt the spread of the virus and allow some economic activity in the country that's now slipped into recession. But critics say this 15 day locked down light won't stop the spread of the virus. If it goes only 15 days, it will start increasing again. And the problem is that our health Care is now a full capacity. We have two cities in Metro Manila, which are at 100% occupancy. So that's a real problem. That's University of the Philippines.

You That small window opening lives and livelihoods would suffer at the disruption will become greater and my sense if we prematurely opened, it could be catastrophic for us. But he acknowledges extending the log down will be a tough sell for both the politically powerful business community and the everyday Filipino who's going to suffer because of these extended lockdowns.

Learning curve: Higher education during COVID
"But we're going to start off right now, with the executive director at Wisconsin Virtual learning, Michael Leech. So many schools had to go through a major transition and learning curve this spring due to the Corona virus, and they'll likely have to do some sort of hybrid learning this fall. If not all, virtual, you being part of a virtual learning school for quite some time in your experience, What do you see as the pros and cons of online schooling? I think, I think certainly some of the pros of online learning or that this pretty flexible model that online learning sort of Adopts and that students can learn anytime anywhere for the most part, but also offer students the opportunity to work at their own pace. Um, obviously, within some parameters, but I think a lot of students would like the opportunity to challenge themselves and try to explore content and in a different way. Some of the cons. I mean, it's not. It's not for everybody. That's a model that students in W. D. L have had a chance to choose. Unfortunately, this last spring, a lot of people didn't really I have a choice, and they were sort of thrust into this online learning model and and again, but it not being for everyone. Sometimes students maybe don't have the independent motivation or Some of the ability to have a structure schedule on their own. That could be a challenge for students to try to maintain connection to their learning connection to their peers. I was just going to ask you about that. How do you make up the structure? The socialization aspect when you're learning online because We all kind of forget how important it is to develop friendships and relationships and notice social cues, and that's all a part of life learning, and we we do learn that in schools, too. Absolutely. I think you know, social media has helped us quite a bit in the realm of trying to help cannot, kid kid. They're connected. More than ever. Andi has found ways to connect more than ever electronically, so Social media actually is a huge way. The students cannot both in brick and mortar and on virtual in virtual settings on the TV l we offer social opportunities we way provide the community with outings and field trips. A cz well as we do have gatherings where sometimes students will meet When things aren't obviously in quarantine or sent home. We'd have opportunities for students to meet on campus. Sometimes we have study sessions in person of people. Students specifically needs some connection time with each other. A lot of students really maintain a social buzz with their peers quite naturally, now on their own, despite your efforts in the Gulf, and so it's important, obviously the monitor and connect with students, you know in person whenever possible, because interpersonal relationship is still really important to learning. But at the same time, I think it's you know, kids are sort of working around this whole inability to be together all the kinds you know, Mike, I think you bring up a good point. I think when I think of school, I think about what it was like for me in my head Being 41. We didn't have social media and things like that. So I guess kids are a little bit more flexible when it comes to online learning at least some because of Social media. What piece of advice would you give school districts around Wisconsin that air trying to implement maybe Ah, High bred format. Or maybe they're going to all virtual learning for short period this fall. What? Some advice you would give them while they're doing this? I think recognizing that people's technical skill even though they may feel confident with certain things. The technical skill is not all there even in our learners, so doing whatever they can to get students to be consistently proficient in their technology skills, trying to trying to level the playing field by having students with similar devices. A lot of times it's a real challenge for teachers. I also happen to be married to a teacher was working through this very issue right now in her district. No, that's hard when you have to believe that that offer a variety of devices. So then teachers have to create lesson plans for a variety of platforms. So whatever the district's khun do to standardized, the platform of students are using Like I said, check for that proficiency and make sure that everybody is clear on what the expectations are and really, you know, the partnership between home and school has become more important than ever. It's really a partnership where you know we're trusting the parents are gonna be able to help students they connected to their learning. Keep on top of their work and do what they need to do to be successful, and it's sort of on their own And so parents, really the role of parent is really an area that I think this should focus on two out of support. Parents, You know, as soon as you have never had parents are finding ways through. You know, small online communities to try to support kid do this online learning thing while they have to go to work and try to live there, there lives an adult as well. So again, just trying to work with students toe Develop, develop individual proficiency to then also teaching adults parents learning coaches, if you will have the skills
Public health expert: 50 percent effective coronavirus vaccine would be 'better than what we have now'
"We hit five million US cases yesterday for some perspective. The first nineteen case in the United States is believed to have occurred on February six. We hit one million cases on April Twenty, eight, eighty, two days later. It then took just forty three days to hit the two million mark on June tenth. We hit the three million mark on July seven that was twenty seven days later then just sixteen days later we rich four million US cases and July twenty third and again it took us just sixteen days to hit this five million reported case number right here in the United States joining me now is Dr Tom ingles beans, the director of the Center for Security of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Dr Ingles. Be Welcome back to meet the press. WanNa get a little big picture here. You know last week you were you put out a lengthy list of ten recommendations. You guys didn't call it a reset, but sort of like how do we get control of this virus? Now another one of your sort of colleagues in the larger sense Michael Star home is an op Ed. He's basically calling for a reset of some sort New York Times today editorial page calling this. It feels though as public health officials are all calling for some sort of reset. Partial. lockdowns things like this and yet we are not having that conversation at all on the political side of things. Are, are we doomed to sort of live with this virus now if we're not GONNA at all look at your recommendations I DON'T THINK WE'RE DOOMED To this fate I? Think we we know what to do. Other countries have done it. I think the purpose of these resetting reports these for a kind of a reestablishment of the basics. Is that we know that another country's universal masking fiscal, distancing, avoiding large gatherings. Those kinds of things have worked. If we look at countries like Italy and Spain and France, they have a total of about seven or eight deaths today and we have thousand, but it's not magic what they did. We know what they did. So I think if we act together in national unison, we can get there and that's what the purpose of these many of these reports are I want to bring up the issue of masks there've been some people that said if we had ninety five percent compliance unmask wearing, we could get rid of we could sort of get this fires under control. Is that unrealistic and we do need to do more than just mandating masks Do. Not, alone. Not by themselves or alone the solution, but they are a critical part of it. We know that physical distancing makes a big difference. We know that large gatherings are places where super spreading events occur and people have the opportunity or the virus has the opportunity to get around quickly and for. Many people at once. So we have to do a number of things together in terms of you know simple things like diagnostic testing results coming back much more quickly. It's it's unacceptable for the country to have to have testing comeback a week or even two weeks later it's not useful at that point there's no point even doing the test. So a number of that we have to do, but they're not they're not complicated they may be hard, but we have to do them kind of in unison. And all of those, they're not hard except when you when the word politics gets involved, it makes everything a little bit harder and I wanNa keep you out of the political space here. Let me ask you a question about that scenes and to sort of set expectations doctor Fauci implied that the first vaccine that we get, he hopes it's seventy five percent effective. The FDA has said they will approve any vaccine that's at least fifty percent effective. Can you explain to the public what that means what it means and what it doesn't mean and what our expectations should be for the first vaccine Well, we know that many of the vaccines that we use are not perfect. They don't prevent every case of disease but if they prevent a substantial portion of disease than that can help us get to a point where most of us are protected, the disease can spread quickly between people anymore a concept that is called her immunity. Herd immunity doesn't mean we will won't disease anymore. It means it's not gonNA efficiently as efficiently spread in an epidemic form. and. Is there a percentage figure in your mind that you think will sort of give us a huge? Huge step in the right direction is at a vaccine that is at seventy five percent or does fifty percent do you fear that could be a false sense of hope. I think we would take fifty percent because it's fifty percent is a lot better than what we have. Now we've we've no tools to no no vaccine tools or medicine tools that we can use to slow this down. So fifty percent would be would be far better than what we have. Now of course I think we all want something that is seventy, five, eighty, five. Ninety percent effective. But we'll have to see what we get and I think for the amount of time has passed since the beginning of this pandemic to have a vaccine that's even fifty percent effective in in the coming months or the beginning of twenty twenty, one would be phenomenal. But again, we hope it's better but fifty percent would be better than what we have now. Tom ingles be from Johns, Hopkins One of our experts that we have on here regularly, really appreciate you coming on and sharing your expertise with us. Sir.

"Of mine was on the show. Actually, during the protests and riots going on in ST Louis, you might know Mike Duke from Missouri Gold buyers. He has another mission in his life. And I want to share that with you because it really moves my heart and I think it'll move yours as well. But Mike is ah has recovered from throat cancer.

And what the price of gold and silver right now we are extremely good for you. Good for me because it allows me to work on my rescue and let's talk about that's we are officially a five, a 13 C organization with Max's second Chance Express and Rescue And this is something that you've been doing. Ah, for a while now, but I want to go back to the the original thought you have in your head You shared with me a couple of weeks back of why you started this. Tell me the conversation you had with God. Well, I went I was sick. I was diagnosed with stage four cancer. I am a gentleman who never used a tobacco product in my life. I had a drink in 20 something years. I went to the doctor thinking I had strep throughout. And I had stage four Tillman's well cancer. I spent over 42 days and the ice who I was actually dying about Trish because a cooking it nutrients because of my damage to my tongue. But by that time that I was in there as I tell people you don't You don't you're not sick. As long as I was as bad I was without having a couple conversations with Jesus. But in one of those conversations I thought to myself that you know, I've been pretty plus that business. I'm very blessed with my sham. They have a wonderful family. And the one thing I realized I was slacking was giving back and I made about a God that if I got through this if you help me do it because I only added 20% chance to live. And if you help me get through it. I promised him that I would give it back. But I made do it, You know, help. I was looking for stuff to help the community and what I did was, I went down to chair ST Louis, which is pretty much the same Polis animal control and I started volunteering there walking the dogs taking care of the dogs in the cages and like that. To give back and Bo I swear you God showed me what my true calling is. I've never had anything Make me still is because I do. When I take a stray dog who's been abused. Oh, who's been neglected and show it love and training, and by the time we're finished? They are a pack that that is a would be adopted and have you up in that community. Capture that had problems with the number one problem for rescues his transportation. You know what I mean by that? If you go to southern Missouri, and you go to these dog pounds like popular Bluff and Sykes and Daphne, they have Children that are 65. 70% you said, kill rates. That means that if they can't find a home or getting adopted, they've gotta put it down. Yet. So for a while you've been running Max is second chance Express and rescue and you physically you're personally running around and picking up these dogs to the tune of how many a week so far. Somewhere between 30 and 40. And what I'm doing is taking up these dogs from these actual shelters, and I'm bringing him back to ST Louis to the know Choe Rescue's out in a 60 rescues and samples. I probably deal with 25 to 30 of them, right. I bring them the dogs. That we're going to be Children and southern Missouri. And I bring him up here so they can get him adopted. And they have they have a knack to do that. They have a way to find out people that are looking for dogs. So you're doing that. And now Max is second chance Express and Rescue is legitimate. You're a 513 C organization so people can now financially help you in this progress. Yes, at this moment for the last year. I have been driving my own personal and I'm putting probably $2500 a week on it or something of that sort. And I pay for the gas. I paid for everything. When I'm looking at doing is getting a I would love to be able to get a Yeah, absolutely it up with metal changes, and you know it, then that small bus You know, one of those like they use at the airport?

It was just like stopped trying so darn hard. You know you got so much to offer and so much to give me. That's that's to me. was like the ultimate. Ultimate and I'm GonNa care for you, no matter what. It's kind of like your kid now. You got three kids right now. I mean how much how much do you love your kids? How far will you go to prove that you love them well? If you love somebody, you'll go as far as you have to go to the end if that whatever. Whatever? And so that you know that's. That's the commitment that I think it it. It is there for us to jump on, and it makes you a vulnerable you makes you look bad why this guy doesn't belong to be here anymore. He's let it get out of here. No, you know I'm going to hang myself. With it because I know this guy could make it if we don't give up on you, that's that's the kind of commitment to care in I. Think it really shows you know. You'd give to others, and you give them an opportunity to really do something special. They might not have done otherwise. I think it's the way you do it, you know sometimes there are. There's harsh news to deliver, and that's the difficult part of the businesses that everybody is in, but some it's not just the word sometimes you do. Sit him down item. I know sometimes with my kids. If it's difficult, conversation out outgun lower and then have them in the chair, so they feel a little bit more in control. I don't know. Maybe that's crazy. You just want them to feel not threatening love, even if it's bad news, even if you are grounded. For whatever and I think that's the part I Michael I think I told you before obsessed with with failure right now and fear those two things pushing through when you are scared to death, you know, and and whatever way because what comes on the other side of it is pretty cool because you're gonNA, survive it and I feel like that's something that can also be thrown in there with leading and guiding as well, but it's again. It goes back to the culture of knowing that none of knock you make this mistake. You're not cut. In fired. We're still going to bring you back in. What did we take from? What did we learn only if only if you make it twice? So fear, failure are a temporary in imprinting credible motivators, their bit dangerous. And they are on the other side of it and I'm not advocating for him and just saying that sometimes people will do work harder longer. Whatever out of fear you know and. And failure and fear also great constrictors the fear of failure. Fear of looking bad the fear what other people are great constrictors of authentically living, and so you know that's why the mental skills for me are so important is like okay. Let's actually get some skills boards. You can manage this runaway train. Sometimes negative train of thought this fear based train. Of thought you know, so you can actually get off that train if you want to. This will take his kind of down a different road here, but. What we have come to face right now. And what's going on in our communities right now has brought to light again for the thousand. Millionth time. How important it is for us to to take care of the people in our communities and we. We have an opportunity to make a choice that we're going to do about how you going to do it and or if you're going to, you're not and I don't think that there's ever been a time. That's more ready for us to show. How much we? We love the people around this wherever they come from whatever colours their skin is whatever their background is, and I know that there's there's a lot of work to be done and a lot of ways voting issues and legislature issues, and but I don't know that there's anything more important right now, and I'm a stay with what what I know I don't know. How do anything else? But loving the black people that are in our that are close to us that we can relate to, and we can't have the opportunity to connect with is so crucial. It's so crucial that we understand without that willingness. We're not gonNA feel their pain, and we're not going to understand the story, and we're not going to make the right choices on how to show to care and I. Don't know that there's any time more important in our lives than than to love the people around us and right now. Black lives are so important to to love and we should have learned it. It hundreds of years ago, but now more than ever, let's that's love our way back through this this situation and turn it so that all people understand how much black lives matter and and that's it's more of a challenge in in in the white world. Then then then the white people think, but it's there to be done, and it's not a hard process. There's all kinds of work to be done, but there's nothing more important than just downright caring eleven th the people around us just because they're. They're just because they they need it. Deserve it just like everybody else and so. That's. Why I think the a lot of the things that we feel strongly about now in our work. Just continues to show us why we should stay with it and keep working at it and make sense of it and see if we can help people be. Better at what they WANNA. Do whatever it is, and in this case in particular because we have you on you, but that it's not sorry. I don't apologize for that that just it's so important and It's what we find so much with our players we've been. We've been going through this off season in in really in zoom world and we've heard from so many kids, and as we've always heard from kids, but not not like now even more than ever. Because you can feel. You can feel the newness people say oh, really I didn't get it that way. I didn't see it that way I wish I would have seen that earlier. I wish I would have known it earlier and. It's A. It's a really rich time to rich time for people have the heart in so. Anyway so I. I'm not sorry. I take that back. Tag Sorry? Not Sorry, that's the thing. I will say this. I think so many conversations that need to be had and that that's the key word is conversation. It by the way goes. Across the board and I think one of the things I I've missed recently from the pandemic on front when we all started to quarantine, which for me was on March sixteenth.

When we're through this has to be rewarded in all sorts of ways. But we can start today as I'm sure some of you have just Expressing our love our absolute love and devotion to them for helping for struggling so that we could have time those of us who get to sit at home and think about how we're going to fix this world we can fix this world. We owe it to the people who have had that struggle and that suffering. We owe it to those who've died everyone who has died so far. Let Their deaths not be in vain? Let's two years five years down the road. Look back and say it was awful that we lost this beloved person. This family member this friend of ours. This neighbor down the hall but then we picked up. We picked ourselves up and we picked up the Mantle. And we said we're going to create a better world in their name so that when we when we have the things we have and we live the way that we want to be living and we're treating each other the way we should be treating each other we can say this all began out of a massive a massive death and despair but instead of singing instead of wallowing in a instead of building. False memorials to it. The Living Memorial was that we all got off her ass and we got busy and we fixed it and we the people literally became we the people. Maybe we wouldn't have done that. Had you not died or you had not died or you or you or you. Your deaths were not in vain. You know we're going growing up going to Catholic school. Good Friday. They tell the story of Jesus being nailed to the Cross and hanging there for three hours until he passed away and the his is seven last words or seven last things that he said that are recorded. And it's it's your little kid and you're there reading this. The alternates pretty frightening thing. Because it's clear the guy hanging on the cross didn't WanNa die that he was in such pain with the nails through his hands and that that's how he's being propped up on that cross the nails in his hands and his feet in however. I'll say whatever else they did to him and he's going through the most awful pain and begging God to take this away. Take this job away from me. Please don't let me go like this. He says his last words to his mother. He asks his friend to take care of his mother in that moment. He's not a believer in whatever. The thing is that he's supposed to be the son of God the afterlife all this other stuff. He's just wanting to live and he's not going to live. He is in a slow death and three three days less than three days later. He rises from the dead. The resurrection and the story has this happy ending. I'm not being sarcastic. I'm just saying folks. We can have that happy ending in spite of all the death and destruction that we're having to go through right now instead of being paralyzed with fear and terror because anyone of us myself you any one of US could be next. Many of us will be next. If it's me I don't want to have lived and died in vain for no frigging reason and if it happens to you. I don't want that to happen to you. I don't want you to be forgotten. I don't want this moment to be forgotten. I want to do something. The majority of people did not have to die. Had We all done this differently? Had We had our unelected leadership doing its job. None of this. None of the tragedy Sir are about to occur. None of those half to happen. So that's my commitment to you to you to your loved ones to anybody that you know that has passed away during this that will pass away. I will not let this be forgotten. I will not let them have died for no reason whatsoever. I will look back with you in a few years. Not long and we will feel a sense of pride in some ways that that we rose to the occasion that we did not just let this happen and ignore it that we did not just when we didn't have to stay at home in November that we didn't stay at home or if we are at home we have fought for to make sure that our voice gets the legally be heard. I'm GonNa do this I'm going to do. I'm I'm asking you to join with me. I'll join with you. You can ask me. We none of us. We don't have to take this anymore. This is it this is it. I've seen enough. I really seen enough and I with you. We will resurrect this this country this world this planet to be something better than what it's been and I can already see it I can. I can hardly you can already see it because I already see. The evil doers are already trying to do it. trump yesterday making the pronouncement. That Young People. You do not have to pay your student loan. That's for the next six months. Wow Okay so really see. This is what they're all admitting with all the things they're saying. If you don't have to pay your student loan debt now or for six months. How buffer the six months after that or six years? Why are we even forcing our young people into this virtual debtor's prison it's wrong we know it's wrong and when the back is against the wall what do even the bad people say People you don't have to pay your mortgage this month Landlords you can't pick people farmworkers. We hate you. We hate you. Illegals your essential. They're releasing nonviolent offenders out of the prisons they shouldn't have been there in the first place. Don't have come back and don't put anybody else in prison again unless they're you know. I don't even want to say this but because the concept of even prison is wrong. We're smart enough to be able to have a system set up to protect us from people who would do us harm. I get that. But when they're they're already releasing the so-called nonviolent offenders where were they in prison in the first place. You see what my point is. Is that that the people the haves the one percent who have benefited greatly at the expense of everybody else now realize that they can't quite keep it going. Even the moderate Democrat who's going to be the nominee for the highest office in the land felt like he had to do something this week so he's going to lower the free health care for all that we already have for Medicare for people sixty five or he wants that he's GonNa lower to sixty years old. I'm not laughing. That's a good thing. It's a step okay. So you see so. He even see we take by the hand. We help them see that. That's just not enough but you're in the right direction. You didn't raise the eligibility age from sixty five to seventy. You went the other way. Good for you now. I know you can do even more. They know they know their system is wrong. And they know that when we come out of this after having lost so many people after Gone through it. The essential workers who are not at home.

This question comes from amazing subscriber daryl who says dear serb motto from a catholic perspective active. Do you believe that there is a point of no return wherein god decides that he has had enough of a person sending and ceases to extend his mercies will so for some people. I think you know mercy would be ending all right now. You're the sweet. Media of death might be a mercy to some people in so much as you know. If you die in a state of grace you get to go up to heaven. That's pretty really good whereas for some people very very long life doesn't seem merciful at all for people who are frittering away their life and an end sort of <hes> self-destruction certainly the bible we see god losing his patience with certain cities and but that also is in part a function of of human will will because when god is preparing to destroy cities they'll say all right if i can find forty righteous people then i won't destroy it. He can't find those forty can't find twenty right if i'm gonna find ten righteous people but they can't because people get so rotten so i'm not too worried about the sweep meteor of death i i have great love for providence i have great trust in god and great faith and russell kirk writes about this the guy who wrote conservative mind and when he in his read of edmund burke says that providence the trust in god's plan the trust that this world makes sense is fundamental essential to the conservative point of view and even if you think that you're an atheist or agnostic or something just the idea that this world makes sense. There is a purpose. It's not just random craziness that doesn't mean anything tale told told by an idiot full of sand and fury signifying nothing just just that belief is central to conservative and on the left right. Now you see chaos this idea that there is no sense to the it's not going toward anything. I always see these articles. You know a meteor hurled past the earth. Thank goodness. It didn't hit us. I didn't think it was gonna hit us. I i you know it just. It doesn't seem like it's our time just yet <hes> that's a fundamental distinction. I'm not worried about that meteor of death coming in crushing us when we don't know the time or the hour we don't know when it's going to happen but when it does trust it'll be the right time and i'm sure we'll see some sweet meteor of death twenty twenty bumper stickers like continue the steam whenever came up with that is making some good money right now.

You're <hes> you know. It's your life so it read whatever good books people recommend to you but i i would practice.

Jerry says his company released a guide of correct language regarding gender in the realm of healthcare with phrases like biological sex being band. I wanted to keep my job but this is crazy. Any advice depends what your job is. It depends how you have to use that language. I mean i would never use that language and now i work here. You know it adds now. I'm not working at morgan stanley or something or someplace that would insist on that kind of ridiculous orwellian language so it it depends if they're saying around the water cooler. You can't use the word sex you have to use the word gender which is a term that refers to grammar not to human people. I mean there's not supposed to refer to humans and then i would just avoid the topic at the water cooler. If in official company missives you're not allowed to use the term sex. You have to use the term gender for something something that is going out publicly from the company. It's their company. They can put out whatever they want now. If what they're saying is that in your interpersonal communication. You're just kind of your your your emails. Your text messages your the way you think because that's what it ultimately comes down to not just speech codes speech codes or thought codes. If it comes down to that i certainly wouldn't be able to tolerate that. I mean all i've got is my consciousness. All i've got is what i think of the world the faculties that are mine and if i were told that i'm not allowed to think what i think or have the opinions that i have or even use my own speech which is the human <hes> ability what right that's what separates us from the animals then i would maybe start start looking on ziprecruiter dot com and start looking for a new place because that that is so oppressive i don't.

There would be ways to expand access to healthcare. Innovation innovation is wonderful. We're the greatest driver of healthcare innovation in the world. Obviously we have the best health care system in the world. That's a true answer a leftist hearing that wouldn't find anything objectionable about it except the last one that no.

Oh julian wants to know. I don't know this might be allie. Beth study using a fake name as a daily wear subscriber name julian who wants to know what are your biggest criticisms of calvinism. How much time do we have left in the slash. Say that because alley is obviously really an advocate for calvin discussed this at length in this she talked about on <hes> ben episode of the sunday special that she was on which everyone should go check out as well without without going too far into it and i'm no scholar of calvinism. I'm a catholic the the big the big criticism of calvinism is that is it is a form of fatalism so it <hes> denies the will in many ways and it sort of surrenders <music> humanity to sort of mindless fatalism now. This is the response to that would say you darn catholics or pelagia aijun heretics. You have a work based theology which is not true and we could get into that at some point but if if calvinism is only focused on grace and denies the role of the will and then certain harasses like which were declared harris's fifteen hundred years ago the pledge in heresy deny grace and <music> only focus on the role of will what you need to have is true religion which is the marriage of grace end will dancing as though they're doing a formal dance at the ball and you see this most clearly in the annunciation so in the angel comes down to marion says hail mary the lord is with you you will conceive a child of the holy spirit and then all of heaven holds its breath because the angel weights. Mary says i am the lord servant his will be done. So that god comes all the way down the mountain all graces there in that scene and yet so as mary's will marry a sense to god's will and and we may turn away from god's will we may turn away from our own salvation that is for us to do and this is denied by certain <hes> more modern christian <hes> integrations rations and including calvinism and so that would be i think probably the most glaring error all right says. Would you be friends with someone who had an abortion. I am friends with people who have had abortions multiple abortions and multiple people who have had abortions christians and i'll even expand that to the whole pro-life pro-life community who tend to be conservative. At least i think christians conservatives pro-lifers. I think we are the most judgmental people except when we are the least judgmental. The people i had a guy barely knew him.

If if you you only had to do one or two if that was all you can fit in. It certainly would be aristotle or plato. I mean that would just if you're right. If you teach aristotle and plato that would so correct act some of the <hes> many of the academic problems that you see <hes> there are many other philosophers who should be taught or theologians as well or people who kind of blur the line like saint thomas aquinas that would be great to do that. We tend to have this focus on the enlightenment philosophers it just in america and in in this world but i think that's kind of a mistake or other great philosophers dating back to antiquity and we should probably read them. We should also probably read the ancient historians like through cities. I think that would correct a lot out of educational problems and then most importantly we should read the bible in school. This is not my <hes> theocratic fascism like some of the leftists wanna call a bible thumper autism not a bible thumper on. It's not what i'm saying. I'm just saying it's the most important book that has ever been written and it singularly shaped western civilization and the the rest of the western canon that you read after that <hes> makes no sense if you like none of it makes any sense if you are not biblically literate so the fact that we don't teach the bible in school because of some stupid supreme court decision fifty years ago to appease some aggrieved atheists is just absurd. I mean it is it is not possible to have a serious education. If you haven't read the bible and so <hes> even before the philosophers i would say we need to get some biblical literacy back in schools as well so here's a follow up question to that. Would you say that the average american that you know might be middle class and just work a nine to five job. Every day should read all the things that you said or do you think because you you and andrew klavan have defended jeremy. Naina are kind of like anti college. I'm a lotta screw that up and you're very pro. Liberal education drew talks about about this a lot of course he spent a lot of time at oxford in england and has a love for old history and all that stuff. Do you think that that's something that is only for the. I guess the elite educated educated people or do you think that is the philosophy for everyone. Well college is not for everyone and <hes> these days probably for no one but you know in nineteen forty nine hundred forty thirty five. I think we had about five percent of americans graduated from a four year college. Now sixty percent of high school seniors going to go on to a college. Many of them won't graduate. They'll go into debt and not graduate but i. I don't think that a liberal education is necessary. Refer your liberal arts college is necessary for everyone. I suspect there were a whole lot of farmers in the nineteenth century who knew a whole lot more about our western.

"But he would have expected to win right because he's cheating. He ends up cheating with no less an adversary than the government of Russia to fix the two thousand sixteen election. You can't have both of these things. You can't have Donald Trump never desired or intended to be president. And Donald Trump both desired and intended to be president so much that he cheated fixed the election with Russia and therefore expected to be present. You can't have that those don't both work. So why would Michael Cohen say it Michael Cohen is throwing spaghetti at the wall. He's not here to tell the truth. He's not here because he's now reformed. He's seeing the light. No Michael Cohen is trying to garner public sympathy. Probably wants to get out of jail little earlier than he's supposed to because he's a broken weak man who has betrayed his benefactor. That's what it is. There's no I don't understand what the other explanation would be. This is what happens when you get the squeeze put on you is people just start saying anything, even if the things contradict themselves, which clearly he's done right here. So okay. Now, Michael Cohen has even less credibility than he had when he started because somewhere in there. He's lying not he didn't only lie in the last. Congressional testimony lies in this one one of those conflicting statements has to be alive. So next up Donald Trump is a racial bigot. Now, this is the greatest evidence that they've got nothing on Russian collusion. If they've got Donald Trump if they've got evidence that Donald Trump conspired with the government of Russia to fix the twenty sixteen election broke, presumably untold numbers of laws made him made self a traitor to his own country. Why would they bring up that? He doesn't like black people. It doesn't it seem a little weak. I mean, you've got you've got the president of the United States committing treason. That's the allegation and also he said a mean thing about a black person one time. No, the the reason that they're going and trying to portray Donald Trump has some sort of racial bigot is because they don't have evidence of any crime and racial bigotry is not a crime. But in the court of public opinion, it hurts them when you're looking at the twenty twenty election with which is what this is really all about it hurts them. And so he says Michael Cohen goes does a little dance that the Democrats want him to do he says Donald Trump's a racist? Mr. Trump is a racist. The country has seen Mr. Trump court white supremacists and bigots you have Hernan call poorer countries pulse. His private in private. He's even worse. He once asked me if I can name a country run by a black person that wasn't a whole this was when Barack Obama was president of the United States. And while we were once driving through struggling neighborhood in Chicago, he commented that only black people could live that way. And he told me that black people would never vote for him because they were too stupid. And yet I continued to work for him. Why? Oh, gosh. Michael Cohen must be a pretty bad guy. If he's going to not only work for someone like that. But he is going to. Pledge undying fealty to him say take a bullet for him. Wow. Michael Cohen must be a real dirtbag. Well, we already knew that. But the stories that that Michael Cohen is telling the stories are hard to believe hard certainly impossible to corroborate. But then even the insinuation he's making or bizarre. We'll get to that in a second. But first selectquote, you know, I love.

"And they're saying he's not lying now. It's like the they're a victim of fraud. Who? Cuts a con man and other check. It's like it's like an abused spouse. Who says no, no, he's changed? His he hasn't changed. They don't change. Even Michael Cohen admits this credibility problem. A free agent. That was reporting back to the president what he had done correctly frequently reached out to Mr. Trump, and Mr. Trump was very happy to take his calls. It was free service. Roger stone says he never spoke with Mr. Trump about WikiLeaks. How can we coop corroborate? What you are saying, I don't know. Oh, that's pretty rough. So in all of this testimony says, yeah and stone, Roger stone was talking Wicky leaks, which is really a front for the Russians and then the called Trump and Trump took the call and yeah. Yeah. So Debbie Wasserman Schultz. She's so excited. Oh, yes. And how can we corroborate? What you're saying? Mr cohen. Oh, I don't know. I don't think they expected that answer that he can't corroborate any of this. And you see it throughout the whole testimony the the whole testimony. He makes these outrageous claims and really they're just insults. They're not even that one was a particular claim that he can't defend but mostly it's just insults. Besmirching his character. He's a racist. He's a visist that and say, okay. How can we corroborate is? I don't know. Michael Cohen back when he was Trump's flack couldn't corroborate those rights that Donald Trump is the best memory of anyone I've ever met is the most dignified man, he has the most integrity is the greatest that ever walked the earth. Now, he couldn't corroborate that either. And now because he's the same guy because he's the same lying dirtbags always been he can't corroborate this. He's just saying what people want to hear. He's just dancing for the Democrats now used to dance for Trump. Now, he dances for the Democrats to try to limit his time in prison to try to get a little public sympathy. So let's go through these assertions these the these claims Michael Chona's making this testimony because what the Democrats are relying on is that it's just gonna be this cloud of fraud deception collusion. Nobody's gonna look into the specifics. Let's look into the specifics. Let's knock everyone down first specific I claim from Michael Cohen, Donald Trump never. I really wanted to be president. He never expected to be president. He didn't want. This is one of the main democrat attack lines on Trump. He was only ever after his own personal advancement making more money. Building more hotels getting his name out there branding. That's all. He was interested in. He never wanted to be president ever thought. He was going to be president. Heck he might have been upset when he won the presidency because it hampered his own business career Michael Cohen opens his testimony with this line. In a million years. Did I imagine when I accepted a job in two thousand seven to work for Donald Trump? That he would one day run for the presidency. To launch a campaign on a platform of hate and intolerance..

"Michael Cohen dirtbag. Lawyer convicted an admitted liar a went to Capitol Hill today to testify to congress, which he previously had lied to the GOP came out with a little ad before this happened. You'll remember Michael Cohen used to say, I love Trump. I'll take a bullet for Trump. I'll never turn on Trump. Now, he goes to Capitol Hill to say that Trump is a liar and a racist and a cheater every sorts of terrible thing. So in advance of this ridiculous testimony that has zero credibility the GOP released an advertisement that just contrasted. Well, Michael Cohen is saying with his past statements now I wanna to tell you about the real Donald Trump. He's really he's a unifier. The words the media Choubey using to describe Mr. Trump are generous. He's going to do everything that he promised. He's gonna bring success and he's going to make America. Great compassionate principled. Donald Trump speaks from the. Heart and pathetic kind. He's going to stay true to who. He is. He's gonna be an amazing president Humboldt on this and genuine Mr. Trump's memory is fantastic. And I've never come across the situation with Mr. Trump has said something, that's that's not accurate. Donald Trump wants to do is make this country. Great again says have fun in prison there at the end just sort of smelling those Michael Cohen, tears that dirty disloyal rat. This is a great ad people are mocking this ad right now because Michael Cohen was the personal lawyer to Donald Trump. They're saying man if this guy is such a dirtbag liar. If he's obviously flipped so significantly. Why did Trump Hiram doesn't show a lot of good judgment? Why do the put him on their board? Make he was deputy finance chairman. Why did they do that this ad actually requires humility and it demonstrates humility on the part of the GOP? It's an ad that admits that Donald Trump hired freight. Oh to play Michael Tom Hagen rather to play the smart put together lawyer ends up hiring this buffoon. It emits that the RNC hired schmuck to be its deputy, finance chairman is worth it. It's worth admitting all of that this is in the old school before Donald Trump before reality TV before social media really took over politics to the degree that they have in the old school..

"Even now, president still pay lip service to Christianity, even though we've had many post now, I think to post restraint presidents Barack Obama of didn't seem to be terribly Christian. I think he said he was Christian. But he also drew on the face of all religions, he criticized Christians for the crew Salines their gun image and clinging to guns and religion. Brooke Obama strikes me as the spiritual, but not religious type, you know, very interested in himself, but not too concerned about the nature of metaphysics and the divine, and obviously Donald Trump is a thrice-married lapsed Presbyterian. But he does at least that one. He's excellent four Christians and for pushing of the things that Christians want, and he does pay lip service to it as well. We may be in a post Christian period, we may have the the fast religious groups in the United States or the nuns, the religiously unaffiliated, the spiritual but not religious. So we may get to a point where we're electing practical atheists or practical acne. Sticks. But if we were at the point and some person might call himself Muslim who really is a practical atheist. We ought to the point the America where we had a serious practicing Muslim elected president. I just suspect that the culture of the country would be so so different. We wouldn't recognize it when it could potentially be. I mean, you see studies. How so many millennials are unchurched? Yes. No. I think I mean, I think perhaps it's it's just as likely we get a Muslim president as a practicing Christian presence in the future. I'm not. I'm really not discouraging Muslims. I'm just saying it seems that the culture is trending in an atheistic direction and were probably going to see that reflected in our politicians. All right. Sam has a very important question. He wants to know Michael white has been hate you. What have you done to incur the most terrible wrath of our future? President. I think I received the applause of our current president. I think that was part of it the the real issue, and I say this as a as a bestselling off, Ben. And I you know, he, and I are bestselling authors and. Then you have how many books I will. I how many books have I sold as the real question. Yeah. I of Ben made this point when I became a bestselling one that he was little upset because he has written a dozen books or something ally. And and but I sold more copies of not a book. Then he sold of all of his books with words, and this is very difficult. You know, obviously among us bestselling authors. There is always a little bit professionally where you go back and forth, you bounce ideas off one another. But I've tried to teach Ben my secrets which is to stop doing all that research. Okay. For for one stop putting all those hours in. I mean, the guy works like a dog. He's got two kids. He's running multiple shows stop doing and his wife's a doctor. 'cause I heard his wife's a doctor in our. That's gotta be trying and to stop putting all those words in the book's. He hasn't taken my advice. Once he takes my advice. He's gonna be so happy. He's not going to be angry at anybody the world. But I think he's gonna keep putting words in them. He should right. A comprehensive guide to writing by Michael known. That's what it'd be more book for Michael Knowles and his by Ben Shapiro. But this point confide that's going to be might. It's like Strunk and white. That's going to be the guide to writing the principles of writing. By Michael Ryan wants to know is the GOP better. Wore off a I'm sorry better off or worse off with never Nancy as the speaker of the house for Democrats or would Republicans be better if they found someone else to be the democratic leader, this is a confusing? What you phrased it? Because when I think of never Nancy, I think of Alexandria, Casio quartet, I sixteen congressman that were against her of others ANSI being the speaker. We are way better off with Nancy Pelosi is the speaker. She is superb speaker for Republicans, we have spent zillions of dollars vilifying this woman. Not that we really needed to. She's done a good job of it herself. She's a she's a week adversary. I mean, she's a she's a good adversary. But she's a weakened leader as she doesn't have a ton of support within her own party..

"You're listening to inside of you with Michael Rosenbaum. This week's guest is he'd liked to be called this a bad ass. Rob. Would you call Michael? Rooker. A bad ass. Yeah, he was pretty tough guy. He pulled a knife out at the end of you had a knife on the podcast. He didn't whip it out right away. So much shit happens in this podcast. We learned so much about this guy. I think at first he was a little bit. We we know each other, but he was a little bit like, what's this going to be about? And we went everywhere, and I think I became a little bit of his therapist today as he became mine, that always happens with gas, but you know him as Merle from the Walking Dead yon do from guardians of the galaxy we worked together. I was Martin ex, I'm gonna have to throw that out there or how about Marcus Wexler from TNT's hit TV show Las Vegas that you watch that rob. I'm seeing a little bit of that. You're a liar. We talk about how crazy was as a kid, how he played chicken with a knife in his feet, getting paddle by his teacher in the first grade, knocking himself out. Out with a steel pipe was the only time he's ever knocked out and breaking every vertebra in his neck and his huge threshold for pain inside of you is brought to you by policy genius. What's policy genius, Michael. Well, let me just inform you that September the month that we're in right now. Rob yet it is national life insurance awareness month. Most people aren't even aware that like you had no idea and they have a month for everything. Now we'll heck. Yeah, they do, but I think life insurance is probably one of the most important things don't you. Like Bacchus reminds pretty important while that I'm yes, that's true. I think people's health and insurance is also up there. It's up there. It's below black has. Okay. In fact, most people aren't aware. They need life insurance, rob forty percent of people don't have it, which is kind of sad, isn't it? I don't have life insurance. You really don't. I don't..
