"Destroy their It's Ronald Reagan's approach to the old Soviet Union. How cause uprisings?

Fresh update on "nazis" discussed on C.G.Jung Helpdesk
"They're getting back to Barbie Land, and Ken is already there, and he overturned society and started a kind of a cute bro culture, and he brainwashed all the Barbies. Barbie with the woman from the real world, Gloria, and all the cast-out Barbies that are in Barbie Land had a plan to make the Kents fight against each other to bring back some stability again. They succeed. The dude bro culture gets dismantled, but Barbie realizes that she does not belong in Barbie Land anymore, so she decides to become a real woman and go into the real world. I want to make a disclaimer. As I mentioned in the beginning, I don't see Barbie as a Jungian movie. It's just a great way to show some Jungian concepts, but what is my bridge to bring in Jung? There's a very strong reason for that. The layer that connects all human beings, it's a collective unconscious. We have our individual life, our individual journey, but if we go low enough in the psyche, we have enough that connects us with other people that we have the same experience as they do, even in dreams or in visions or just in life. When we have art, works of art, when they are able to talk to these deep layers, they are able to talk to a huge group of people, up potentially to everybody on planet Earth, today and in the future. This is now the most successful movie of the year, and there's only a handful of movies that earn more money than Barbie. It's popular, so we have to assume it's archetypal. This is why I want to talk about it because the archetypal things show us how our psyche works deep inside, and when we experience something like that, a great piece of art, just as an example, it talks to us on a very deep level, and we're engrossed by it, and we want to spend time with it, and we want to understand it, and if it happens to enough people and they're willing to spend money, then movie studios or song makers or whoever can make a lot of money. My personal view on the movie is it's rather a satire in the sense that there's a huge, huge disconnect between what is said and what is shown. So very often the things that are said don't make sense in the context where they are presented, and that makes it a difficult movie to get a hard grasp on it, but I will get to that later in the end. So to analyze that and to bring this now together, the concept of Jung and Barbie the movie, with the summary, we have to look at Barbie Land, which is this fantasy land where the first act of the movie is taking place, and the most important thing to understand there is that it's not the real world. It's not even comparable. It's sterile in that sense. There is no flowing water. There are no living animals. There is no birth. There's no death. There's no aging. There are not even relationships. The cars don't have motors, and very often they don't even need to drive the cars. They have nothing that really breaks. Nobody gets sick. Nobody gets ill. It's every day the best day, every day, and nobody is really concerned about it. I don't know if you've seen the movie Groundhog Day with Bill Murray, but he's also reliving the same day every day, and it takes him just a couple of turns that he tries to kill himself all the time because real human beings, they can't do it. They can't stand it to have this constant repetition. It doesn't matter how great it is. When it's always great, it gets unbearable anyways. It's the same as trying to lie down on the most comfortable couch that you can think of or the most comfortable bed. Even after a couple of minutes trying not to move, it becomes agony because human beings have to move. They have to change. Something has to happen, and this has to be kept in mind because all the things that are happening there and people are doing, it's all pain. It's make-pretend. It's a charade. They drive around with trash cans, and I'm pretty sure there's nothing in it because nobody is eating anything. The container with milk or what it is, it's empty. There's no waste. Nobody goes to the toilet. There is really nothing. In that sense, it's incredibly, incredibly sterile, but it's not only that Barbie Land is strange and in a kind of heightened reality. The same is for the real world. The real world also is more like a parody. When they go there and they interact with the people there, they also act very strange. It's just the opposite of Barbie Land. The opposite of something very strange is, again, something strange. They go to the construction site, and immediately it's just one sexist sentence after the other, and no real person will talk like this, especially not in this situation. It's a comedy. It's heightened reality. It's more similar to a Wes Anderson movie, where it's also childlike. The Barbie Land is childlike because it's a fantasy of small children. Thus, as we learned during the movie, it's not only the fantasy of small children, but rather of guys running a company thinking of a place of Barbie Land. The whole board, they're all men, and they think about what this female society could look like. If you checked out the quote for this event, I reference this, where Jung says about the problem with men looking at women and trying to understand the psychology is that they're projecting their own inferior femininity into that, and they see that. That makes it then complicated to find the right interaction. This is why nobody thinks about Ken, because the little girls are not grown enough to think about boys, and the guys, of course, do not care about the boys in that lab. This is why the Kens don't have any homes. This childlike quality shows itself in the people, as they have no filter. They just say what comes to mind. They are very naive. In Barbie Land, it's okay, but in the real world, they would get into trouble because they're thinking, okay, you don't have to pay. You can't help people, whatever. It's outrageous, and that's what's funny. It's a kind of fish-out-of-water story. The things they do are outrageous, and it makes it a common medium. Also, in Barbie Land, they know things, but it's only book knowledge. It's definitions. That's enough because it's make-pretend. People pretend to be a doctor. People pretend to be president, but there's no need for a president or a doctor, so it's enough when you wear the right clothes and talk in that way. This is one of the funniest situations when Barbie is accused of being a fascist, and she just says, people think I'm controlling the railways and the flow of commerce, because that's one definition of fascism, but this is, of course, not meant, and this is completely beside the point. This idea of you have this completely disembodied knowledge that is separated from a strong underthing that's not connected to anything. She maybe knows the textbook definition of fascism, but certainly she doesn't know about Nazi Germany or fascist Italy and the Holocaust and all those things. This is an important point to understand that the Barbies and Cans, they're not really men and women. In their minds, they have these things, but bodily and everything else, there's no need for such separation between men and women because there's not really a problem to solve this. This is not nature. It's completely unnatural. So this is the state of Barbie Land in the beginning of the movie, and this is a place where Barbie grows up and exists. The way how her story starts is by having these thoughts of death, and this is the interesting thing when you want to look at it from a Jungian perspective because when we say she has a female psychology, of course the logos part would be inferior in her, and this would be the things that come through the unconscious, and the logos is associated with words. This means she's having thoughts of death. This is her logos coming up and presenting us something from the unconscious, which is completely strange and foreign to her, but she's so naive that she does not realize it and blurts it out in a party, and everybody around her is mortified by what she said. It's only then that she realizes there's something wrong, and this is when things start to fail for her. All the things we have seen before, one of those perfect days, suddenly she wakes up, has bad breath. The water has the wrong temperature. The milk is old. The toast is burnt. All the things she never had to think about. Suddenly they become problematic. Suddenly she can't live her normal life anymore. She falls from the roof, and this is what makes her concerned. One of the coolest things that I realized is that her feet are flat. The feet are always like this. They're always suspended in the air because of the high heels, but once the unconscious comes up, and like the bodily comes, she gets into contact with the full earth with her feet, and she does not know how to deal with it and how to walk. This reminded me of something that Jung said about patience. He had British soldiers who were stationed in India, and he said, if you go to a completely different culture from yours, it's kind of your psyche trying to protect itself and becoming more stereotypical in the way you are and where you're from, and this is an effort to not touch ground on the foreign soil and not let it infect the person. He noted that very often people, for example, went to Africa and India and were there for a long time, that kind of the psychology of the soil sweeps up in their unconscious and starts influencing them, and people are trying to shut themselves off. So this image that he had of the feet of the soldiers or other people kind of hovering above the ground, this is now what's happening to Barbie. She's full feet on the ground, and it's her body trying to bring her more down to the earth view, out of the abstract, the sterile and dead into the nourishing and also re-euveraging, renovating earth. What does Barbie do? And this is something that happens very, very often in movies. Normally, also in fairy tales, people go to a witch. They don't know what to do, so they don't turn to normal society. They go to the outcasts of society and ask, okay, what's wrong? In this case, it's weird Barbie. And weird Barbie has special knowledge because she got through the wringer of the real world. The real world interacted too much with her, and now she's damaged goods. And this is why the society puts as an outcast outside of the city, and even her house looks weird. And she has superior knowledge above the other Barbies because the other Barbies, they just shun her. They ignore her and talk behind her back, and she has to live alone in her house. But if things are serious and people can't function normally anymore, they go to the witch and ask her for advice. And she tells Barbie that somebody is playing with her and something's wrong with that person. And that's why she's having problems. And this is so cool because Barbie does not know that somebody is playing with her. And it's this idea of psychoanalysis. It's one of the staples of psychoanalysis, that you are not the lord in your own house. There are also other guests, and they push and pull you and influence you. So it's her unconscious acting up, and she realizes, oh, okay, I have to now go into the place and through the dark of the unconscious to find out what is wrong. So it's, of course, an outward journey. I think she goes to another place, but it's really an inward journey to find out more. All she has is the thought of death, and her life is not working anymore. And she wants to find out why. Well, basically, she does not want to find out why. The reason why she's doing this is because she does not want things to change. She only wants to interact to the point where it's gone, and she can ignore it and live the life again and have the best day of her life again and again. Coming back to a primal, ideal state, I mentioned already that she's incredibly childlike and naive with the people around her. She thinks that this girl, Sasha, is playing with her because she has the visions. She's turning inward. She does a little bit of active imagination, trying to find out what she sees in her own unconscious, and she sees that little girl and thinks, okay, this is the person I need to talk to. But, of course, she does it in a completely wrong way because she does not know how to interact with real people. And this puts her completely in a disarray, and she cries. But something very interesting happens when she's in the real world and when she's sitting alone on that bench and trying to think, using her, let's say, inferior functions of the unconscious to come up with a solution. She sees all the different people, and she sees an old lady. And the first time that she's seen an old lady, she sees death and decay and ends coming because in Barbie Land, everything is plastic. Everything is fantastic. Nothing really ends. It's the best day every day. But there she sees people crying, people laughing, things living, changing. And this has an influence on her, and she cries, and she cries for the first time of her life. She explores new, different parts of herself and her experience, and she likes it. And this is a very, very important point. Especially for the end of the movie. How she tries to interact with Sasha is in this very relation-based mode of being. She's friendly with everyone, right? And so she goes there as she's her best friend. But it doesn't work. It's her superior function failing. The ways and the tools that she has are failing, and she doesn't know how to deal with it, so she runs away crying and being upset. If we fast-forward, I'm just talking about her own psychological journey, when they're back in Barbie Land, and she realizes that Barbie Land now has changed in something completely different, completely foreign, and she even lost her house. She doubles down on this idea of, okay, I just want things to end. I don't want any of this. I'm just going to lie down and play dead. I will become unconscious. I don't want to be awake for this. I just want to wait till it's over, and I don't want to be any part of it. And there's this fairy tale of the girl who spins, and she pricks her finger on the spindle, and she falls asleep, and she has to be kissed away by a prince. She's in a castle, and around it, there's all those fawny plants. I forgot the name, but you know what I mean. One interpretation was that her parents, for her 16th birthday, did not invite, evil or something like that. So she did not have experience of the whole psychology there, so she becomes unconscious. And sleeping and death, symbology-wise, are with this unconscious state. So she tries to shut herself out of everything. It's their consciousness blocking off everything and not be any part of it. But what happens later, when Gloria gives her speech about how difficult it is to be a woman in the real world, it's then a reminder of the complexity of the world. Barbie Land is very simple. It's incredibly simple. Basically, you don't have to do anything, right? But in the real world, you have to do everything. And when Barbie sat at the bench and saw the real world and saw the interactions and saw what variety is there, and she liked it, when Gloria explained how it's difficult to be a woman, and Barbie gets help, this is her realizing what her journey is and where she has to go. And this comes out then in the end, where she talks basically to herself, the inventor of Barbie, but also the woman who gave birth to the real Barbara. So like the bodily Barbara and the spiritual Barbara. And she's put into this decision what she wants to do. And this is the first time that she actually wants something before she only does not want something. But then she wants something. And this thing is to become a real woman and get into the real world. So the whole movie is like Pinocchio, but Pinocchio finds only out at the very end of the movie and decides to become a real boy. That makes Barbie a little bit of a tough protagonist because she's not pushing so much the story forward. It's the second half taken over by Gloria and Ken. But her experience is from thoughts of death to, oh, no, this is only death and decay, I have to stop it, to, oh, my God, nothing I do does not work. And realizing, okay, there's more, there's promise, there's not only death and decay, there's also life in there. And basically trying back to getting to an earlier stage of consciousness which is not possible, it's like leaving the Garden of Eden in the Bible. People were cast out and there's no way back. And this is the stages of consciousness. You can't go to a lower way. This is what Jung spent his life on by saying, okay, we have this ancient wisdom of the psyche and mythology and fairy tales and religion and all these things, but it's not available for us anymore. We're too removed. We now have other conscious needs, so it's not there for us. And we have to explore it new. And his idea was that psychology was a way to explore these things again and to bring them back into culture. But you cannot say today, okay, I'm going to go back into Christianity and live it the same way how it was 500,000 or 2,000 years ago. It's just not possible for us. We have to find a different way and move forward. It doesn't mean that it's useless, but it has to be rediscovered in a new way. The old worries, the symbols, the dogmas and so on, they don't work anymore. So we need new ones. And this is the journey that Barbie is taking, and I can't believe that I'm talking like this about a movie about it all. It's being sold to little girls. Parallel to that, you have Ken's journey. And this is also very interesting because you might remember what I said about you have Barbie and her thing coming from the unconscious are the intrusive thoughts. What Ken is is intrusive feelings. It's the Eros function. It's the relation function. But the same way how Barbie can't deal with the thoughts of death, he can't deal with feeling because he gets an obsession with Barbie. And he is completely focused on her, and he only wants to be with her. And she does not understand it. He also does not understand it, but he just wants to be with her all the time. So in a similar situation, there's something inside them that starts bugging them, and they have to find a way how to deal with it. The problem for Ken is at least Barbie found a real person in the real world, like an ambassador, who can explain how the real world works and what it means to be a real woman. Ken does not have that. And this is very interesting because he's in the logos sphere. He's in the world sphere, right? He's in the separation sphere. So he gets into the real world, and what does he do? He walks around alone. He watches people. He watches people in a gym. He sees some advertisement. And the next thing he says, like, I want to learn more, I'm going to a library and get books and read about it. I'm going to read about horses and trucks and all those things. And he's not well enough, worse in the real world to understand what all these things mean. It's all really just words on paper. It's only abstract again. And there's not one male person that he really builds a connection with who can explain to him what is necessary. He would have needed a father to explain what it means to be a man. But rather, he is a naive child, goes out into the real world, sees all the flashy things, the big cars, the fur, the loudness, and just wants to copy it. Like an adolescent boy who does not understand what it really means to be a man. It's because it's all show. It's all charade. He then thinks this is really the thing that he's projecting his insecurities into the outside world, sees those and thinks this is real. And he thinks, oh, all you need to be is to be a man, and suddenly you get everything. But he finds out, oh, no, you read all those stuff. You need to change. You need to get education, certification, training. He says, oh, no, that's way too hard. I don't want to change. That's so difficult. Okay, I will set up a new society somewhere else where I have all these great things that I just saw and that I think are amazing, but I don't have to do really the effort. So rather than confronting his own soul and own being and questioning that, he tries to change the world. In Jungian sense and Jungian concept, that's possession and inflation. So there's certain forces in his unconscious that are taking over and bringing him to force himself onto other people with his views and his ideas. And he's shaping the world. There's this quote of Dostoevsky that fits perfectly, that people rather change the world than confront their own soul. A simple reason why he is amazed by horses is he's never seen real animals. There are no real animals in Barbie land. So the first and only animal that he sees is a horse. And you have to get into the mind of somebody who has never seen any animal and then suddenly sees one. Of course they're amazed. Of course they're completely transfixed about it. And that's why he thinks, okay, they are sharing the same space as human beings, so they have to be as important and as involved as everybody else. But this is, again, his complete misunderstanding about everything of the real world and just bringing selective, very shiny things is engrossed by the aesthetics, but he does not get the meaning and the underlying things. You can't work out how society works by watching people training in a gym. But then you have, again, this heightened reality where they call themselves, you're the man and man, man, man. So that's the funny aspect of the movie.
Mark Levin: Reminder, Vladimir Putin Is the Criminal
"And that's a fair point. But why is it, why is it that if you have the view that the Ukrainian people and the country of Ukraine and the, the criminal here is Putin and his deletion of his army against the people of Ukraine and indiscriminately killing tens of thousands of and citizens kidnapping tens of thousands of children and bringing them into Russia to be taking them from their parents? You can understand, I think, why some people would say is that absolutely repulsive and unconscionable. So, what is this effort that constantly character assassinates Zelensky? First, to call him a neo -Nazi. He met with every rabbi, leading rabbi in the Chabad Orthodox Jewish from movement every community in Ukraine two weeks while the Jews are fleeing Russia, the rabbis are fleeing Russia. So, to call him a neo -Nazi when he lost, as well, family members in the church, it is just sickening. It is sickening. That is number one. Number two, if you stand with me, and if you don't, that is fine, but if you do, all then of a sudden, you are taking the same position

He asked Merrick Garland a really hard -hitting question yesterday he said do you support more crime for the record the Attorney General said no Then he said that he was really concerned about something else he said there is a world naked bike ride in Madison Wisconsin and went on to say that he had sent a letter to the Department of justice two months ago concerning reports that young people might be naked bike riding along with the adults oh my god and he said do you think there's a problem why didn't answer you our letter two months ago and Merrick Garland says I'm sorry I'll have to ask the Office of Legislative Affairs get to back with you about this naked bike ride that's something you really need to know about from the Attorney General of the United States. All right back to your calls. Marilyn in what's I up just wanted to let you know about move on has a banned bookmobile and they're buying up the banned books and then taking them out and passing them out free at places where DeSantis is and some of the other Republicans. Oh isn't that great. Yeah I think it's wonderful and they sent me a little bookmark that said a banned book is a book worth reading. There you go. And I'm going to take that down to the library and they're also supporting the librarians. I like the fact that they're asking for money to buy more banned books so that they can pass them out free. Oh that's marvelous. Good on MoveOn .org. Yeah the latest outrage was a teacher got fired in I believe it was in Idaho. Might have been Oklahoma but I think it was in Idaho this week because she recommended to her class that they read the diary of Anne Frank. I mean like it's how dare a teacher teach children about the Nazis and what they did. Just incredible. Marilyn thanks for that information. That's great. Brian in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Hey Brian thanks for listening to KTRC. What's up. Hey good morning. I've heard you say that you're a fan of Fareed Zakaria on CNN and I am too. I think he has a lot of intelligent people on his show. I don't agree with everything he says. I'm not a fan of his liberalism but beyond that yeah. Well over the past couple episodes over the last month he's made a editorial or stated opinion on immigration and how if progressives don't modify their position and get a handle on it it's going to be rocket fuel for the American right and I think he is and I wish progressives would take a more holistic perspective economic on immigration for example we have a housing shortage These millions of immigrants need to live somewhere. Where are they going to live? Nobody talks about it. I think it's possible to have too much immigration. If they have too much immigration it has a negative effect the on labor market and it helps to hold wages low. You know high levels of immigration and illegal immigration benefits the wealthy because they get a servant class that for works very little money. It hurts the impoverished Americans that grew up in this country. They get hurt the most by illegal immigration and high levels of legal immigration. And all we hear out of leading Democrats is the humanitarian argument nation of Americans. I get what you're saying Brian but let me just lay down a couple of the simple realities around this. One is that we have such a tight labor market it right now. And you know there's a lot of speculation about why that may be. I think 11 % people of who get COVID end up with long COVID and have to drop out of the labor market. We had a million Americans die from COVID. But anyhow we've got this really tight labor market right now. We're absorbing about a million immigrants a year which is America what has been historically absorbing all the way back to the 1930s and 1920s. You know around a million a year it obviously varied a lot you know 30 or more years ago. But that's been the general trend. And that doesn't seem to have any impact on our labor markets. But you are right that in those states red that have essentially you know that have passed right to work for less laws and thus essentially banned unions that a large immigrant presence can drive down wages. Democrats have tried to address this. You know I spoke earlier about E -Verify. Republicans refuse to have anything to do with the conversation because they're demagoguing the issue basically. But yeah, I think that Democrats need to get a lot smarter around this issue. I had this conversation with Ro Khanna on the air about a year ago. You know that we don't have an illegal immigrant problem. We have an illegal employer problem and employers willing to hire people who are here illegally are a giant magnet for people and it's wrong. President Biden just legalized about 500 ,000 Americans

A highlight from Larry Taunton
"Ladies and gentlemen, are you ready to listen to a man of grace, sophistication, integrity, and whimsy? Well, so are we, but until such a man shows up, please welcome Eric Metaxas. Welcome back, folks. This is Eric Metaxas, and welcome to the show. It's hour two. I continue talking to John Smirack, and after this segment, we'll bring on Larry Taunton to go over the news of the day and other things, but the news of the day being Tucker Carlson's mind -blowing interview with Larry Sinclair. Absolutely insane, insane that we're hearing about this for the first time 15 years after we should have heard about it. And the country's a different country because the media and the Republicans just squashed this information because they think you're too stupid to be able to process it on your own, so they have to censor it for you, scandalous. Okay, John, you were talking about something else. I was saying that Winston Churchill had a lot of flaws. He had been a warmonger in 1914. In 1923, he was hostile to the Germans, even though they were the Weimar Republic. He was an anti -German jingoist, but in 1940, he was the indispensable man, the only man who would stop the British from surrendering after France fell and cutting a disgraceful deal that let Hitler essentially run Europe. He was the indispensable man for all his flaws. And there were people in his party, the British Conservative Party, who wanted to push him aside and make a deal with the Nazis because it seemed like the prudent and sensible thing to do. That is exactly when you hear pious Christians condemning Donald Trump saying, well, he's got this terrible moral character. And he says, he puts out mean tweets. They wanna shove Winston Churchill aside and make a deal with the enemies of freedom and surrender to them because they find things unsavory about Donald Trump. And that's what's happening potentially in the Texas Senate right now with Ken Paxton, a heroic defender of religious freedom and the unborn and America's borders and election integrity. He's being savaged from the left by people who hate all those things and attacked from the squish center by the Bush family, which just resents him for beating one of their family members, George P. Bush, in an election. So you've got the most disgusting squish rhinos on the one hand and the far left cooperating the way they cooperated in the election of Obama. So that is my latest political article, but I've got a much more important piece I'd like to talk about. Sure. It has to do with our Lord and savior, Jesus Christ. Was Jesus a sinner? Do we get to say that Jesus was a sinner too? I can't wait to hear where you're going with this one, John Smirack, what do you got? This is a theme I've seen first in mainline Protestant preaching and then in some woke evangelicals. So now of course it eventually filters down to the Vatican. One of the closest advisors to Pope Francis is Father Antonio Spadaro. He runs the semi -official magazine at the Vatican, La Civilta Cattolica. So he is like Pope Francis' right -hand man. He gave a sermon just recently about Jesus' encounter with the Canaanite woman. And I think we all sort of remember that story, this Canaanite woman whose daughter is possessed by a demon starts basically pestering Jesus for a miraculous cure. And Jesus makes her jump through a bunch of hoops. He tells her, look, I've only come to preach to the lost children of Abraham. It is not fit to give to the dogs the bread that is meant for the children. And when we read this, I think we're all a little shocked by it at first. Jesus doesn't sound very nuts. And we're like, wow, what is this? What is this about? I think it is one of those hard sayings in the gospel that we have to think through that challenge us. Jesus was not acting like Oprah here. He was being kind of a hard guy, kind of a tough guy. He makes the woman, basically she gets to the point of saying, but even the dogs get the scraps that fall from the master's table. Then Jesus praises her for her persistence and for her faith, and he heals her daughter, just remotely, heals her daughter. A happy ending. Well, Father Antonio Spadaro, Pope Francis's right -hand man, gave a sermon recently where he says Jesus does not care. He calls Jesus angry and insensitive. He says that his hardness is unshakable. He said that Jesus replies in a mocking and disrespectful way towards that poor woman, because he's apparently blinded by nationalism and theological rigor. But - Hold on, hold on, hold on. You're telling me that one of the top priests at the Vatican genuinely publicly disapproved of the behavior of Jesus of Nazareth, our God. He said that Jesus is giving in to his own racism and nationalism, but by the end, the woman, through her persistence, heals Jesus. He says, quote, Jesus also appears healed and in the end shows himself free from the rigidity of the dominant theological, political and cultural elements of his time. So in other words, the woman heals Jesus instead of Jesus healing the woman's daughter. Jesus's racism is rebuked and repents Jesus for his sin of racism. This is what Pope Francis's right -hand man is saying, but don't take comfort in the fact that you're Protestant. This crap has been around. Protestants have been preaching this for years. You would see it if you go to Woke Preacher TV, you can see videos of Protestant ministers saying this five years ago. Well, first of all, the word Protestant is meaningless because the Protestant church has been in the tank, since Dietrich Bonhoeffer was at union in 1930. I mean, we've had liberal, progressive Protestantism for about a hundred years, so - These are self -described evangelicals. Right, that's the difference. Some of these folks would be described as evangelicals, but they are woke and they're doing the same thing you're describing. But somebody that close to the pope to be saying this, unless you're exaggerating - No, I'm not exaggerating. I was quoting directly from the translation. So let me unpack what's going on here, okay? This is an attempt to put ourselves above Jesus to where we can judge Jesus Christ, because we're so enlightened and we're so intelligent and we have made so much progress. This is the ultimate rebellion, the ultimate new gospel of the Antichrist. And this is what is being preached in our churches where we can judge even the behavior of Jesus Christ. John, it's the clearest mercy I've ever heard. I mean, for somebody to be criticizing Jesus as having sinned even slightly, that goes against every doctrine of the church from the beginning. I can't imagine that this could be - That is what the Vatican is now preaching. So really what happened in this story is this woman is a Canaanite. She's a member of a fertility cult that used to sacrifice infants. So she basically is in a religion that worships demons. She comes to Jesus. The daughter she raised in the demon -worshipping religion is, big surprise, possessed by a demon. She asks Jesus for a miracle, a miracle, a suspension of the laws of nature. God is not some water tap. We turn it on and off. Oh, I need a miracle. Okay, thank you. She's asking for a miracle from a God whom she has rejected her whole life. He makes her jump through a few hoops to show her sincerity and then gives her a miracle. And yet these progressive Christians are so proud that they want to condemn Jesus so that they can feel superior to Jesus. That is the essence of liberal Christianity, where you are the ultimate authority and the secular culture around you are the ultimate authority. George Soros, Microsoft, Facebook, Harvard, Google, they are the authority. They judge even Christ. We have less than a minute left. It's just hard for me to believe that things are that bad, but it seems like they are that bad. I don't know how your average faithful Catholic could make sense of this. This is very, very disturbing. Well, we've had terrible popes before and we've had heretical popes before. We now have one who's probably the worst, most heretical in the history of the church.
A highlight from Marriage as Commitment and Priority
"Welcome to Gospel in Life. When it comes to marriage, we often use words like soulmate or the one. These words can reveal an underlying belief that to have a good marriage, you just have to find the perfect person. But the biblical vision for marriage is starkly different. It's a way for two imperfect people to help each other become who God intended them to be. Listen as Tim Keller explores the meaning of marriage. The title of the sermon tonight is Marriage 3. I figured this is the summertime. At the end of the summer, you see a lot of sequels. There's Child's Play 3, there's Terminator 2, there's Rocky 85, and there's Marriage 3. I figured you'd be in the swing of it. Please turn with me to Ephesians 5. Those of you who have come to the evening service know that this is part of a series that we started 18 years ago or so on the book of Ephesians. And we're moving through the book of Ephesians at the pace of a geriatric slug pretty much. It's very, very, very slowly through the book of Ephesians. And we've come to maybe the classic text, the longest, the most famous text in the entire Bible on the subject of marriage. So let me read to you again from Ephesians 5 verses 21 to 32, and then we will take it from there. Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. Why submit to your husbands as to the Lord? For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now, as the church submits to Christ, so wives should submit to their husbands in all things. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it just as Christ does the church, for we are members of his body. And for this reason, a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. This is a profound mystery, but I am talking about Christ and the church. However, each one of you must also love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband. This is God's Word. There's a lot of stuff to say about this passage, but here's how we've been dividing it. Let me remind you of where we've been. Let me give you a quick recap of the headings. We're looking at marriage in this passage under five headings. We're looking at the power of marriage, the definition of marriage. You know what? It's six, isn't it? The power of marriage, the definition of marriage, the priority of marriage and the purpose of marriage, the structure of marriage and the mystery of marriage. We mentioned that last week. I won't tell you what all those are, but that's what we're doing. We're moving it through it. So far, we've only looked at the first two, and tonight I want to get to the third. And the first two are the power of marriage and the definition of marriage. Quick recap. Remember what the power of marriage was? The power of marriage is in verse 21. 21 is actually a bridge. For those of you who are here in May and June, when we were looking at the verses of chapter 5, verses 18 and following, or what it meant to be filled with the Spirit, verse 21 is a direct link from the passage being filled with the Spirit to the passage on what it means to be married. What is a good marriage? There's a link. The one assumes the other. You know what the link is? The link is cause and effect. The cause of a good marriage is being Spirit -filled. So verse 21, which is the end of the passage that we looked at, verse 21 is talking about the fact that when you're filled with the Spirit, there's a Spirit -created unselfishness, a willingness to submit to other people, a willingness to serve other people, not to be defensive, to have a servant heart. And that is the basis for any kind of healthy marriage. Now, we talked about that, but let me just, let me make a couple observations to make sure those of you who weren't here know where we're going, where we've been, and those who were here have it clearly in mind. There is a spirit of servanthood. There's a servant heart, which is the foundation for any kind of decent marriage. That's why verse 21 comes before everything else. Well, some people have asked me, what do you mean? What is the servant heart? What is that? It's kind of vague. All right, let me give you at least three critical aspects without which a marriage will not run. These three things, which are really just constituent parts of a servant heart, are like the oil in a car engine. Try to run an engine without oil. Just try it. Don't put any oil in there. No lubrication. What basically happens, of course, is that the friction, the tension will destroy the engine so quickly. It'll get so hot, it'll overheat so quickly. There's got to be something in there that in a sense acts as a buffer, because obviously friction is what an engine is all about, motion and movement. Something has got to absorb that. What absorbs it? What absorbs it is the servant heart. And let me give you three constituent parts to it. The ability to hear criticism without being crushed. That's a lack of self -defensiveness, see. Secondly, the ability to give criticism without being, without crushing, without crushing. Thirdly, the ability to forgive people without residual anger. In other words, to forgive people and really let it go. That's what I mean by a servant heart. The ability to take your mind off yourself when you're giving criticism, when you're receiving criticism, when you're forgiving. Where does that come from? As we said last week, well, we can't go back into all the spirit -filledness, but what it means to be spirit -filled means that the Spirit of God is illuminating your heart and making very real to you the work of Jesus Christ. And if you remember that from June and May, when Jesus' work for you becomes very real. The example that always comes to my mind is when I talked to that 16 -year -old girl years ago in my church and she didn't have any dates. Nobody was asking her out. And she says, yeah, I'm a Christian. I know I'm going to live forever in heaven. I know Jesus loves me and cares for me. I know he died for me. I know he gave himself for me. I know he lives in me. I know that I'm his child. I know that I have his ear. I know that he comforts me and will take care of me, but what good is all that if you don't have any dates? Now, she wasn't quite that eloquent, but you see, at that moment she was saying intellectually, yeah, I know what Jesus has done for me, but right now my heart is overwhelmed with the beauty of, with the beauty of the prospect of being a desirable woman. That's what she was saying. Whereas when I think about the fact that Jesus loves me, cares for me, that doesn't thrill me. Being spirit -filled means you're in touch with reality. Reality is who cares what a drippy 16 -year -old boy thinks about you when the king of the universe says, you are mine and I will stand with you and for you for all eternity. What kind of absolutely insane person could possibly put those two things up against one another and have the pimply faced 16 -year -old win? And yet, I mean, there's nobody in this room that hasn't been through that. What does it mean to be spirit -filled? It means that your head is on straight, you're thinking, you're in touch with reality and you realize what Jesus Christ has done for me is everything. The Bible says that there's actually two, that every human being is religious. It says this in Romans 1, that there's actually a system, there's a systemic structure, there's a systemic religious structure to everybody's life. Every one of us down deep inside has a way in which we think that if we behave, things that if we get to them, then we'll be fulfilled, then we'll have nirvana, then we'll be saved. Every one of us says that I will be able to accept myself if I get this. We've talked about this before. Every human being, Romans 1 says, has got something, some form of religion, something they worship, something they say if I get that, then I'll be all right. The gospel says not your performance, not success, not relationship, not love, none of those things will ever satisfy you. You can know who you are, you can be secure when you realize that Jesus Christ has died for you and you're resting in what he's done for you. When that happens, and when you see the work of Jesus Christ for you, when you're spirit -filled, that gives you the ability to submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. You see, when it says in verse 21, out of reverence for Christ, literally out of the fear of Christ, you can submit, you get this unselfishness because Christ is so real to you, you're continually in awe before the reality of him. So how can you receive criticism without being crushed in your marriage or anywhere? The way is because in your heart you're thinking this, well, Jesus is my priest, Jesus is my friend, Jesus is my king, Jesus is my brother, I can handle this. He loves me, he cares for me, he'll show me. And so you can take criticism without being destroyed. You've got a cradle of security for your moment of great vulnerability. Or how can you give criticism without crushing? Well, you think like this, you say, I was a sinner, I am a sinner, I should be cast off. So you're using the gospel on yourself. You say, I should be cast off, but Jesus, gentle, gentle Jesus has put up with me for so long and he continually shows me the truth and I continually turn my back on him, but bit by bit he's coaxed me and he's been patient with me and he's brought me along. How then could I be any harsher with this person than he has been with me? Now, somebody's out there saying, sure, sure. Yet your wife yells at you and you're sitting there thinking about Jesus Christ as your brother and your friend and your cradle of security is one of the greatest of vulnerability. Well, look, in the beginning, when you're trying to reorient your life, when you're seeking to live your life and have your relationships, living it out of the matrix of servanthood, out of the matrix of the gospel, you do have to talk to yourself like that. But I want you to realize that this is not a mindset that you can turn on this week right away. You better get started now because it takes time. I tried to refer to this in the sermon earlier, one of the earlier services. It goes like this, most of you realize, I guess, when I'm prepared, I quote from all sorts of people. When I'm prepared, I quote. Why? Because C .S. Lewis is somebody that I've read, I've read everything that he's ever written, over and over and over and over again, ever since I became a Christian. Now, some of you are like that. There's a couple of books that you just, you master an author. You know what it's like to do that. Another guy is George Whitfield, that I've just read his sermons and read his sermons and read his sermons. Now, what happens after a period of time is that you not only get to master the person's works, but you actually begin to understand how that guy's mind works. You know what he thinks, even though you've never read anything he said about the subject, you know what he would say, right? I mean, you meet a character and you say, I know what he would say about that. I know what George Whitfield would say about that in a sermon. Why? Because I've read thousands of his sermons, not thousands, but I've read his sermons thousands of times. What happens is you can get an author that really speaks to you and you just read the stuff and you read the stuff and after a while you've gone beyond just the words of the book or the sermons and you've come to penetrate to the way the guy's mind works. That's what happened in my case with a couple of these authors. And that's the reason why when I'm just speaking extemporaneously, when I'm just speaking out of my heart, he comes out. Why? He's in there. Now, that's an image. Most of you know how that works. A lot of you may have people like that in your life, authors, people that have just sunk down so deep that you know how they think, you know how to look at life through them and their ideas and thoughts are in there so deep they just come out spontaneously. Do you realize what would happen to you and what would happen to me if we started to relate to Jesus like that? If we were so saturated in his promises to us and his summonses to us and his encouragements to us and what he says about us in his word. If that had sunk down as deep as what I'm talking about to the place where not just the words but the very way his mind works and the very way he thinks about you becomes intrinsic, inherent, spontaneous, reflexive, instinctive to you. That's when you develop the servant heart. When somebody gives you criticism, of course you're not consciously thinking, Jesus is my brother, Jesus is my friend, he loves me. His opinion matters more than anything else. I don't have to be scared to receive this kind of criticism. This is not the end of my life. This isn't the end of the world. I know who I am in Christ. You don't think that consciously and yet you're thinking that because what it's doing is it's giving its cast to everything you do, everything. There's a stability I keep talking about. There's a poise there, a deep kind of cosmic spiritual poise, a sense like I don't have to be afraid of anything anymore emotionally. It's sunk down in there. It's part of you. You're thinking like he thinks. You look at yourself through his eyes. You look at the world through his eyes. It's only when you've taken the time through prayer, through Bible study, through coming to worship, through reflection, through meditation, through fellowship of other Christians and continually talking about these things together. As time goes on, it sinks and it sinks and it sinks until the gospel dwells in you richly and eventually, eventually that will become the power in all your relationships and the power for marriage. The ability to submit to one another, to really forgive, to give criticism without crushing, to take criticism without being crushed. Only possible if you believe in Jesus. But I don't just mean believe in Jesus, but that you're thinking about him and you're thinking through him and you're thinking of him continually, almost unconsciously. Otherwise, otherwise, otherwise, your heart, my heart is so hard and we are so prone to disbelieve anything Jesus says. Even though intellectually you do, you reject it at a deeper level. Then I'm afraid 16 year old pimply faced kids are continually beating Jesus out in our hearts. You understand what I mean. The power of marriage is an unselfishness which is created by the spirit. Secondly, we talked about the definition of marriage. The definition of marriage, and you know, since I spoke on that last week, I can give you a little concise thing. The essence of marriage is a covenant, a legal, legal commitment. Somebody afterwards said to me, but that still doesn't tell me, what is a legal, what makes a marriage a marriage? Is it a minister? Now, there's a difference of opinion on, between Catholics and Protestants on this and I'm absolutely, absolutely believing, believe that the Protestant approach is right. Catholic Church will say, only a priest can marry somebody. Isn't that right? Protestants will say, a priest can marry, a minister can marry, justice of the peace, marriage is marriage. It doesn't matter whether it's a captain on a ship, it doesn't matter whether it's a justice of the peace, marriage is marriage. Why? Because look in the Bible where marriage comes up. Marriage pops up. Originally it was given to Adam and Eve. It wasn't given to only Christians, it was given to human beings as human beings. And therefore, it's not a church ceremony that makes you married, though it can. It's not jumping over a broom that makes you married. It's not stamping on a glass that makes you married. It's not the rings that make you married. What is it that makes you married? What makes you married is this, a permanent and exclusive public legal commitment to share your lives together, all aspects of it. It's got to be permanent and it's got to be exclusive. Some people say, it's time to have renewable contract marriages. You get married for three years and you have an option for three more. You've heard that. Now, that might be interesting, but that's not a marriage. By the Christian definition, even a prenuptial agreement, to be honest with you, radically cuts at the root of the Christian definition of marriage. The Christian definition of marriage is a permanent and exclusive promise to share every part of your life with somebody else. It's got to be a public legal commitment, a permanent exclusive public legal commitment to share your life with somebody else, every part of your life. If you say, no, it's not permanent, it's for three years, that's not marriage. If you say, it's not every part of your life, just here and here and here, because prenuptial agreement, you don't get this or that. All those things get at the root of marriage. The Christian definition of marriage is permanent, it's exclusive, it's a legal public binding, permanent exclusive commitment to share every part of your life with somebody else. Now, how you do that, whether it's with a minister, whether it's with a captain, a justice of the peace, whether you jump over a broomstick, whether you exchange rings, it makes no difference. Therefore, even in this culture, which is deathly afraid of obligation and commitment and responsibility and discipline, it all likes to talk about self -realization and self -actualization and growth and potential, but it hates to talk about discipline and submission and obligation. Therefore, this is the place at which the Christian understanding of marriage has a head -on collision with the society. You should not give yourself to somebody unless you've got that kind of promise and unless you're willing to give them that kind of promise. See, if you're not willing to make a permanent and exclusive public legal commitment to share your entire life with somebody, then you don't really love them enough to really be married. And the Bible says you should not give yourself to that person until that person is willing to make that promise to you and you are willing to make that promise to that person. That's why I must tell you that a number of people question me about it because, see, the implications of what we said last week, the implications of this idea that marriage is a cleaving, that's in verse 32, it's that public commitment, and that essentially love is a commitment therefore. Well, somebody says, you've de -romanticized marriage in my eyes. So what does that mean? Well, what did I say last week? I said that therefore the essence of love is a commitment. Love is an action first. It's a commitment to invest yourself in another person and meet their needs. And it's a feeling second. One of the weird things about becoming a pastor is that when you become a pastor, for the first time in your life, you are bound and obligated to be friends with all sorts of people that you really wouldn't choose to be friends with. I don't know of anybody else who's obligated, you know, doctors, for example, have to treat people they wouldn't ordinarily like, but they don't have to like them. They don't have to be friends with them. I don't know of anybody else who basically suddenly gets a body of people and the job description is you have to be friends with a lot of people that you would not ordinarily choose to be friends with. Therefore, in a sense, pastors have a kind of unique experience to talk about. You would be surprised at how you don't spend time with. You don't invest yourself in them. You don't give yourself to them. You don't listen to their problems. You don't go to see them at 3 a .m. in the morning. Now, one of the things that I found interesting in my earliest days, you know, Kathy and I moved into a new situation. I got a job as a pastor. I had basically 100 to 150 people and I started to pastor them. And there's a good number of them or people that if I was just living as a private individual in that town, I would have chosen as friends. And there were a lot of people that would never have chosen as friends. Not so much I didn't like them because you don't have that much in common. You're not quite the same. You don't have the same interests. You don't have, there's no spark, you know. It doesn't matter if there's no spark. This person is a member of your church. You're the pastor in a small town. This person's got a problem, you're there. This person's in the hospital, you're there. This person's got to talk to you at 2 a .m. in the morning, you're there. This person's son runs away, you get in the car and go chase him. This man's this man wife has run out on him, you get in the car and go find her. And that's the way it is to be a pastor, especially in a small town, in a small church. You invest yourself. You give. You do the actions of love for people that you really have no particular affinity with. And then after a couple of years, a big surprise comes to Kathy. You know, our day off, which I took every couple of months, I take a day off. And on a day off she would say, what do you want to do? What do you just want to do socially? What do you just want to do for fun? And I would say, well, let's have, let's have John and Mary Doe over. And she would say, why? Why in the world would you want to have John and Mary Doe over? I mean, that's work, isn't it? The reason you see John and Mary Doe, I mean, everybody knows all the problems they have and how obnoxious they are and the difficulties they have and why when you don't have to be with John and Mary Doe, why in the world would you choose to be with John and Mary Doe? And I realized I'd come to like them. I was the only person in town that liked them. But I really did like them. Why? Is it just because, oh, obviously as a pastor, of course, you just have this natural ability to like people and love people because you're more holy, you're more godly. That's why you're a pastor. It's your job to be more spiritual. That's not true at all. It really happened. You know why? Because I'd been loving them, even when I didn't like them. And you see, you don't have to bother, whether you like somebody, that's not what a Christian worries about. What a Christian does, if you love people, eventually you come to like them. It works in reverse, too. Remember I told you the one thing I once read where it said at first the Nazis killed the Jews because they hated them, but then after a while they hated the Jews because they killed them. It works the other way around, you see. What happens is, in the beginning, you love somebody just because you have to. The more you love them, the more you love them. The more you give yourself, the more you make a decision to invest in them, the more you find your heart tied up to them. You know why? Because the Bible says where your treasure is, there will your heart be. Where your treasure is, there will your heart be. When you invest in somebody, you're putting your treasure, you're putting time, which is tremendously valuable. You're putting emotion, which is tremendously valuable. You invest and you invest in that person, and of course, you may still feel a hostility if that person absolutely tramples you and is very cruel and harsh. That's not usually what happens. Usually you find that people that aren't terribly lovely, if you love them, you will come to love them. Now, I'm using the word love in an equivocal way. The way the modern society thinks of love, you're thinking of a feeling, but that's not the way the Bible ever uses the word love. You love them and you come to like them. You invest in them and you find that they get more and more lovely to you. I'm trying to tell you this. You don't go ahead and get married to somebody who you don't like, but I can guarantee you this. Whoever you marry, you will fall out of like with. It is an absolute necessity. Not only that, you will start to fall out of like with that person in most cases before you marry them, in the courtship or in the engagement, and that's where most people say, I guess I shouldn't marry this person. I've fallen out of like with them. Well, friends, your emotions come and go, and if the essence of marriage is a covenant, a commitment, then you will find that in spite of the fact that you kind of love this person, you feel a lot for them, you might be attracted to them, you're great friends, the fact is your emotions will come and go, and at a certain point, a marriage will not work, or even a potential marriage will not work unless you make a decision to invest in that person, and when you find that your heart gets dry and you look at the person and you don't feel any particular like, you invest in them, you give to them, you love them, you are tender, you are cherishing, you listen, you serve, and what it does is it gets you through those dry times. Not only that, it begins over the years to eliminate the dry times. That's not the way most of us do it. When the dry times, when we fall out of like, when that happens, we start to say, I guess this isn't the one for me.
Jonathan Greenblatt Advocates for Censorship on Social Media Platforms
"Matters where's this guy jonathan greenblatt he is obsessed with elon musk and twitter listen to this guy talk openly about colluding with a bunch of social media companies to police what he thinks is hate speech and conspiracy theories which are conveniently anything involving a non -liberal listen to this the adl our center for technology and society works actively with all all the kind of companies of silicon valley from apple to zoom if you will from amazon to microsoft to meta and indeed to twitter we've dealt with them for years helping them tackle the challenges of hate speech on their service we point things out we share information but what we've said again and again and and i've had the privilege to speaking directly to elon a few times the reason why we are so concerned is because we think twitter is such a consequential service and again allowing people who created the toxicity on the platform that led to real world violence keep in mind that the theories dominated that on twitter for so long exploded in places like pittsburgh poway el paso and of course ultimately in washington dc on january the sixth conspiracy theories leading to violence you mean like the massive threat matrix profile going on against donald trump right now because people out there call him a fascist and a nazi are you talking about the the conspiracy theories that got people attacked and beaten for not wearing masks although their talisman businessmen like powers don't exist at all what are you talking about conspiracy theories like hands up don't shoot which never happened and led to a bunch of riots what are you talking about conspiracy theories like trump colluded with the russians to steal an election what about that what about the violence in 2017 january when trump was
A highlight from Jacqueline Fritschi-Cornaz
"Welcome to The Eric Metaxas Show. Would you consider yourself smart, insightful, precocious, astute, clever, wise, beyond your years, and good at checking a thesaurus for synonyms? Well, then you've come to the right place. Here now is the handsome, attractive, striking, gorgeous, and quite frankly, breathtaking, Eric Metaxas. Hey there, folks. Welcome to the show. I like to call today Tuesday. Hello and good morning. Because yesterday was Monday. Yesterday was Labor Day. And so if I look confused, it's a sign that I'm confused. It's hard to get back in. So it's nice. It's a nice, you know, you get, you know, it's almost done. We're almost done. We're almost on Friday. So listen, we have an exciting guest. Well, two exciting guests. First of all, in a few minutes, I'm speaking to Jacqueline. I think it's pronounced Jacqueline. We're going to find out. There's a new film coming out called Mother Teresa and Me. I'm going to see a screening tonight of that film. But we have the woman behind the film, not Mother Teresa, the other woman behind the film with us in a couple of minutes. Very exciting, honestly, to get her here in the studio. We also have Father Pavone coming in today. That'll probably be our two. He is the head of priests for life. He's a hero. And I want you to hear what he has to say. We've got a lot of other crazy guests coming up this week. I won't mention it. Chris. Yeah. I do want to say. Oh, yeah. Thank you. Right. Two, three things, three things before we get to our guest Jacqueline. First of all, our food for the poor raised. Thank you to all of you who gave because without you food for the poor couldn't do what they do. And you didn't need to give just because I hectared didn't need to to respond. Most of you didn't respond. There was some congratulations in resisting my siren song to give food to the poor people in our hemisphere. But it really is. I just want to say I'm grateful to those of you who stepped up. God bless you. Thank you very much. I want to say that even though I'm tan, don't don't let that fool you. I've been working. Really? You have a you have a rating writing deadline. I'm working on a sequel to my book letter to the American Church and writing books. And really, even the last part is very hard. And so even though I look tan and rested, it's a lie. Well, the tan part technically is true. Yeah. But I I feel it's not as easy as they say, huh? Well, you can just put it in chat, GPT and say write a sequel to my last book. Yeah. No, it's so it's been it's been I ask your prayers, those of you who pray, because it's it's hard. And letter to the American Church, by the way, is, you know, I say it is I say it genuinely humbly, like I know it wasn't my idea. And so you have a particular burden when you feel like God wants me to say something. And to some people, that just sounds crazy. But here's the irony. Those people are crazy. But the fact is that it's the book has been resonating tremendously around the country. I get notes from friends who say somebody sent me the book, you know, and I want to mention two things. First of all, letter to the American Church. There's a study guide. If you order it, you can see whether it's through Amazon or Socrates in the city. There's a study guide that goes with it. If you want to do it in a home group or something like that, continue the conversation, because people will read the book, they get motivated, and they say, Well, what can I do? What can I do? And they're usually doing it in a group will help you kind of figure out some things you can do. Secondly, there is a documentary film. Now, I know I've mentioned this before, but it's true. A film. documentary I shot my part in LA at right at the end of June. Directed by Michael Bay. And there were exploding churches in the background, slow motion. It's doves. It was beautiful, right? Yeah, yeah. It's kind of kind of Transformers kind of. No, it's it's a documentary. You did shoot in Hollywood based on letter to the American Church. And with this documentary, we're trying to get the message out to people who don't read books. And you know who you are. And shame on you know, but seriously, the idea that this is being turned into a gorgeous documentary. It's gorgeous. You've seen parts of it's like it's so so beautifully done. It's really exciting. And it's going to be screened in a few churches as a kind of a promo. So I'm going to be traveling around the country. But it's it's very exciting. And it gives me hope for the country. Because as you know, if you know, the thesis of the book is that the American Church is in the same place that the German church was in. At the beginning of the Nazis rise to power, we know the German church did not stand up and do the right thing in time. And as a result, evil took over that nation. And I really believe that we have an opportunity in this country, if we're willing, if we're willing to step up and understand the gravity of it. So I'm hopeful. Um, I should say also, Chris, before we get to our guests, I'm going to be traveling like crazy. Yeah, you have a really, really big skill. It's a little frightening, actually. Yeah. Thank goodness for air travel. Yeah. I'm going tomorrow to Miami. Hmm. I was just I was just there. By the way, it's terrific. It's terrific to have the Cuban coffee. You ever get those? I would love to say I would love to see you on a on a colada, which is sort of the double espresso. I'm happy to try it. I'll do it. So I'm going to Miami tomorrow. I'm speaking at a thing. By the way, everybody who wants to know my schedule to want to know if you can come to one of these events, go to Eric metaxas .com. Eric metaxas .com has my speaking schedule, or if you want to invite me, whatever. But so I'm going to Miami this week. Next week. I'm going to California. Um, there's a TP USA faith pastors conference in San Diego. I'm gonna be speaking at that. Then I'm doing a big event at the Nixon library. Uh, very excited about that. So I'll be there in California next week. And then it gets really crazy. I'm going to Iowa. I'm going to Dallas. I'm going back to Los Angeles. I'm going to Michigan Grand Rapids. Just it goes on and on and on and on. Wow. So So people say to me, Hey, Eric, what do you do for fun? The only thing I do for fun, probably is at the end of the day, when I'm exhausted, we, we what we tend to watch classic films. Oh, yeah, yeah, those are good. And Suzanne and I discovered I mean, this is the good news with like Apple TV. It's like you can find some stuff because a lot of times Turner classic movies, which I recommend, does not have something that I want to watch. They'll sunset that's the term they'll sunset movies and titles sometimes they'll have licensing for a little bit and then it kind of goes away. So it might have been there at one point. Yeah, you know, well, Turner classic movies, I mean, generally, I recommend it. But if you can't find a classic film there, like last night, they were running, you know, in the eight o 'clock hour, they were running a documentary about, you know, maybe with Fred Astaire, or Bob Hope. So and he tended neither of those great actors tended to appear in documentaries on coal mining. So you're stuck. It's hard to dance. So what did we do we found? We found some really cool stuff. But I guess I don't know where you how people find stuff. But we with Apple TV, we were able to discover just a just a trove of films we wanted to watch. So we watched, I don't know that I've ever seen the whole film. But it's one of Hitchcock's earliest films is it's 1935. It's called the 39 steps. Yes, it's a classic film. It's a classic, and it's wonderful. And so we watched that the other night. And all I can tell you is I want to watch it again. Because there's so much good stuff in it. Is it a is it? It's a thriller, right? Well, it's it's a it's a Hitchcock film. It's like a classic Hitchcock film.

A highlight from Back to ASU
"We get it. You're busy. You don't have time to waste on the mainstream media. That's why Salem News Channel is here. We have hosts worth watching, actually discussing the topics that matter. Andrew Wilkow, the next D 'Souza, Brandon Tatum, and more. Open debate and free speech you won't find anywhere else. We're not like the other guys. We're Salem News Channel. Watch any time on any screen for free 24 -7 at snc .tv and on local now channel 525. Hello, everybody. Dennis Prager here. Thank you, Julie Hartman, for sitting in for me. I feel good hands. Needless to say, I was in Denver for the day. I was lucky that I was spoke for my radio station. One of my favorites, the Denver station. 96 degrees in Denver. By the time the evening comes, Colorado, or at least Denver, I assume Colorado generally, gets cool at night, unlike Arizona, let's say, where the only difference is no sun. It stays quite hot, as it does in Texas and other places as well. I am returning to Arizona State University on September 27th. So, that's 27 days from now with Charlie Kirk. You may recall a big controversy. The white nationalists as the professors, these lowlifes, these fools, these intellectual midgets, these liars. 37 professors. I've offered to go and debate any of them anywhere, to have them even come on my show. Of course not. Among their many awful traits is cowardice. People don't realize, because we're so used to it, we're inured to left -wingers hurling epithets of the worst variety. I mean, calling me a white nationalist, which is essentially a Nazi, a practicing committed Jew. I mean, calling anybody that, unless they are one. But they do that, because that is all the left has. Its entire weaponry is smear. That's it. Smear and lies. So, it's been announced that we're returning to Arizona State University, Charlie Kirk and I. So, listen to what some of the professors have to say. Michael Osling, a Barrett honors faculty professor. Wow. It sounds so distinguished. Honors faculty professor. You think of a person committed to intellectual honesty and truth and dialogue. I mean, isn't that what comes up when you think of honors professor? This time around, Prager and Kirk will not be speaking in my name or the name of the college to which I belong, said Michael Osling, a Barrett honors faculty professor in an email. This lessens my responsibility to speak up against them, but not my responsibility to stand in solidarity with the people that this group of trolls so delights in bullying and vilifying. Did you see that quote? You know what he's talking about? I assume he's talking about people trolling him, concerned he's trolling him. Oh, oh, oh. So, we're not trolls. He's being trolled. Yeah. So delight, wait. So, it does not, okay, I didn't understand that part. It does not lessen my responsibility to stand in solidarity people with the that this group of trolls so delights in bullying and vilifying. The trolls are people who have vilified him? Well, no, you see, that's what's not clear. Oh, you didn't say it was clear. Okay, I can't charge you with that. That's true. So, I thought I'm a troll who delights in bullying and vilifying. I'm not. Okay. Since the first Health, Wealth, and Happiness seminar, many of the Barrett faculty who signed the petition to distance themselves from the event have been put on Kirk's professor watch list. It sounds like you're on a list to be assassinated. I mean, it's a watch list. That's all it is. Beware, these are left -wing, radical, anti -intellectual liars. That's what it generally means to be on Charlie Kirk's professor watch list. If you send your child to this university, beware that this faculty member could not care less about truth, craps on this country, et cetera, et cetera. So, the left -wing professor should be allowed to say anything, no matter how irresponsible. And we're not allowed to say, gee, that's irresponsible. And parents and students, be aware that this professor is incompetent and is morally challenged, to put it as kindly as I can. In the months since the uproar surrounding the initial Health, Wealth, and Happiness event, said Alex Young, a Barrett Honors faculty professor in an email, since the uproar, well, didn't he create the uproar? Okay. Just want to make sure that I haven't entered the Twilight Zone. Surrounding the initial Health, Wealth, and Happiness event, it has been made abundantly clear that Dennis Prager and Charlie Kirk are attempting to use ASU as a stage upon which to promote their broader anti -inclusive and anti -intellectual agenda. May I say that it is obvious I run rings intellectually around people like Alex Young, whoever the hell he is. And I prove it because he would never appear on the same stage with me to debate. Okay. So why don't you, you know, I'm pretty prominent. Wouldn't you gain a tremendous following and tremendous gratitude from your fellow left -wingers if you simply demolished me intellectually? Why don't you try that, Alex Young? Because you know you're lying. That's why. You know that there's nothing anti -intellectual about us, but there is something profoundly anti -intellectual about you. That's why we're going back to Arizona State University. It's about the most interesting. Yeah, Health, Wealth, and Happiness. That's really bad stuff, isn't it? That's true. Charlie Kirk, when we were there last time, devoted his entire half hour to speaking about the benefits of keeping the Sabbath one day a week, shutting off his phone and social media. He's a Christian who's does it from Friday night to Saturday night. I don't even try to contact him. Not that I'm particularly contactable either. People know that. So it's a quiet phone on the Sabbath for me. That's what he did. There's one of the 37 signatories to begging people not to come to our talk. Does one of them even know what we talked about? The state of the professoriate is so low in the United States as to be worthy of weeping. And these Barrett Honors Fellows at ASU are just examples of that. They're no worse because you can't get worse. But there's certainly no better. One of the many, many revelations of the last few years for me has been the sheep -like quality that is built into most human beings. I've always heard, we've always been told the famous Japanese saying, the nail that sticks out should be hammered in. In other words, don't stick out. You'll pay a price for not marching with the herd. And so much of my life, I thought it was a Japanese or perhaps Asian characteristic, but it's a human characteristic. These are sheep, these left -wing professors. They're the people who teach your children to the extent that they teach. What else did I learn? I should write an article, what I've learned in the last four years or confirmed, either learned or had confirmed, the weakness of the conscience. This Alex Young goes to bed with a clear conscience. I have lied about two individuals, utterly lied and smeared, and I feel great about myself. So much for the power of the conscience. 1 -8 Prager, 776. this I trust man.

A highlight from Trollhunter
"And welcome back to cinema vino, but it's good to have you guys here with us. That's good to be here. We got Sean Jordan, but it's your boy. And my name is Todd Wofford. And it's good to be here. Summer chaos continues. We're down on our home stretch wrapping it up. We just got a couple more movies to go. Yeah, we don't have long to go. We're almost at the Labor Day weekend. It's almost through September. It's time. Put away all my white outfits and just move on with life. So yeah. Do you put away the white album too? Do you stop listening to it? I do. I go for the gray album after Labor Day. So I go with Jay -Z. DJ Danger Mouse. I go Black Album. DJ Danger Mouse. DJ Danger Mouse. DJ Danger Mouse. Jame Judy Dench. Jame Judy Dench. If I hear Yamo be there one more time. So beautiful Michael McDonald. That's a great baritone by the way. Grace Baritone and all the rock. You know all the words. I hate Michael McDonald. Yeah. What about the Doobie Brothers? I like the Doobie Brothers pre Michael McDonald. Okay. I had like the best of Doobie Brothers CD and like disc one. Awesome. Disc two. Awful. Yeah. Okay. So anyway, so we are drinking Riesling and we're talking about Troll Hunter. Oh, this is lovely Riesling. Yeah. German Riesling. Yeah. It's just German. Couldn't find a Swedish Riesling? They're out there somewhere, I'm sure. Norwegian. So obviously Summer Chaos to bring guys up to speed. We spin a random wheel or we picked random movies and then we spin a random wheel and pick a random wine to go with them. So this is all just. Or spirit. Or spirit or beer. It's willy nilly. Anything goes. Or Todd gets bored and just makes it some seven sevens that are like oddly strong. We don't actually see the process of Todd picking booze. So sometimes it's just like you guys are drinking rum. Sometimes you're not meant to see how the sausage gets made. I think he definitely has put like a finger in every single drink that he's given to me. A hundred percent. More than one. Smells like a sweaty hot dog. Yeah. Sometimes I go full bowling ball in there. So it adds to the three fingers. Three finger profile. That's a bad name. Tastes like Todd's fingers. We all three finger profile. Tastes like what Todd's fingers have been in. That's going to be the first line of my autobiography. It's the terroir. It is the terroir. So we're going to talk about the wine a little bit from the start. I got my notes right here all ready for you. Riesling is known primarily as a German rattle but you'll see it grown in a lot of other places such as Australia, France, the US and Canada. Australia is actually your second biggest rower of Riesling. Rieslings have a reputation as a sweet white wine but you actually got a pretty good wide variety of between dry and off dry. Pretty much any kind of flavor profile of white wine there's a Riesling in that range somewhere. Alsatian wines tend to be on very dry side from France. And then... This one's a little off dry, right? Yeah. This one definitely falls kind of in the between area. And then you go all the way up to Trokenberne Auslese which is going to be just sticky sweet. I mean just like... Hot sticky sweet. Yeah. I'm hot. Sticky sweet. From my hand to my feet. Yeah. Like Todd's fingers. So for food pairings you're going to put this with Asian foods, Indian foods, any kind of spicy dish. With the sugary sweetness of the wine will definitely kind of balance things out for you. Rieslings are coming usually at a good price point. They can be anywhere from $10 to $25. They don't tend to be crazy expensive. You drink them obviously very chilled but any kind of a bold spicy dish you can do a Riesling with. But you can also do them with holiday meals, kind of lighter cuisine. So like... You're actually going to get to do a Riesling tasting in Germany in November. Ooh. That's right. You're going across the pond. That's right. Pinkies up. Pinkies up. That's going to be fun. Yeah. I'll be able to taste it straight off the vine. You have to take lots of pictures. Yeah. Lots of pictures of Zavino. If I come back with Wiederhosen I'm going to be so happy. I would be disappointed if you don't. Yeah. In a big old box of shrooms. So this is going to be... Let me see if I can pronounce this correctly. Correctly. This is A .C. Chrisman, Faltz Riesling. Yes. I'm working on my like great escape like Nazi Gestapo for... accent Sandre. It's really about Bono. Weingutzeit. Yeah. Weingutzeit. That's like the quality. This is like a high quality Riesling. I think in German that literally translates to wine good. Yeah. Good wine. Yeah. It's like this is one of the top quality Rieslings that you can get. So about 25 bucks. And yeah. This one's going to be definitely kind of in between off dries where I put this one. It's definitely not sticky sweet. It's definitely not bone dry. But yeah. A little scale for you. If you're shopping for Rieslings from dry to sweet, you've got cabinet, which is K -A -B -I -N -E -T -T, spätlese, auslese, berna auslese, trocken berna auslese, and eiswein. So that's what you're looking at on the shelf. That's from dry to sweet. And this one's trocken, right? Yeah. Well, yeah. This is going to be... Well, that's a trocken berna auslese. So this is going to be kind of in between. So this is not quite the berna auslese. So this is going to be more towards the cabinet spätlese side of sweetness. This will be... So go for cabinet if you're looking for dry. Go for auslese if you're looking for pretty sweet. And then once you get up to berna auslese, it's going to be just hummingbird feed sweet. So this one definitely has some good solid like sugar to it. But I do give Riesling to my hummingbirds. They fly sideways. And then they have a great afternoon. Those wings slow wading. When they get drunk really fast and then they also sober up equally as fast. It's that heartbeat that just goes 100 miles a minute. But they can't hit that feeder once they get drunk. They can't get that beak in there. They self -regulate, you know? Yeah. Well, nature does that for them. They flap one wing at a time. They just got to... They're going to leave edibles out for the squirrels. Oh, that's great. Don't give me ideas. So Trollhunter, a little background on this one. This is your pick, Drat, right? Yeah. Sadly, I didn't know I was coming tonight. So I never got... Long story short, I'm watching my niece this week. She's two and a half. And I woke up at 5 .15 today. So that's, you know... Where am I? Yeah. So sadly, I didn't get to watch this again before this, but I've seen it twice. Lovely young lady. Yeah. I can't remember what happens at the end. I was going to say, when was the last time you watched it? Not too terribly long ago. So this may be... It's educational for you. In the last two years, I want to say. Okay. So a little bit about Trollhunter. This was released October 29th, 2010. So long ago. That was almost 13 years ago. Gross. Yeah. Actually, I got to say, I think I watched this probably in 2011, 2012. So it had to have been pretty recently after it came out. Because this was a magnet release, which they did a lot of straight to DVD stuff, picked up stuff that was on the film festival rotation. I don't think this ever had a theatrical release. I mean, I'd heard about it. Well, stateside maybe, right? Yeah, probably. But I mean, if it's small enough, it probably had film festival releases with no actual theatrical. I'd say that's probably why the worldwide box office gross. I couldn't find it. It probably wasn't there. That's why. There you go. Budget of 3 .5 million. I don't know if that's in Norwegian money, and I don't know what Norwegian money even looks like. So it's called a skribu. Two very different answers. Did you make that up? No. Run that about me one more time. What was that? Skribu. That's very Swedish chef -esque. So on IMDb, it has opening weekend of $5 ,585 in the US. That's US dollar. Okay. That's probably like 40 or 50 million in Norwegian. And the budget was 19 .9 million nock, which I think is Norwegian kroner. That's beads. That's the larger denomination, but the lower denomination is skribu. Skribu. So it's like cents. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. This grossed over 2 ,000 matroska dolls or whatever. Well, it's like two cents. Yeah. They did a good box office in those little dolls that you get another doll inside and another doll inside. It brought in a lot of those. You got dinks, then you got skribus, and then you got sickles, and then you got nuts, and then you got galleons. That might be Harry Potter. So 515 is doing you real good, isn't it? We just lost our Norwegian listener base. Now, I like that guy. He's got good comments. I can never read them, but they're great. Yeah. They're all related to skribu. Well, I Google translate all of them, so I get the gist. So this had a budget of 3 .5 million skribu. This a is found footage fantasy horror film. Vaguely in the similar vein as Blair Witch Project. That's the vibe I got a lot of, a little bit of Cloverfield, that kind of vibe too. Found footage. Yeah. It has some elements of Jaws. It also has some dark humor, moments of dark humor. I mean, very dry humor. This has become a cult hit over time. So very simple plot, has two film students and their camera person trailing a man they believe to be responsible for bear poaching in the mountainous Norwegian countryside. He is Hans, played by Norwegian comedian Otto Jespersen. Otto Jespersen. He is part Quint from Jaws, part Ahab, part Unabomber. Yes person? Maybe. Yes person. It's like having a yes man. You got a yes person. Now I'm going to have to work on my Norwegian. I don't know. I don't know nothing about that. In their attempt at fledgling expose journalism, the students stumble onto a wild story that Hans is actually a troll hunter who attempts to manage and contain the troll population all while also participating in a government project to keep the story buried from the general public. He's more like a troll ranger, really. He's like a park ranger for trolls. Yeah, because he obviously has, and I have like a kind of a weird shambling respect for the trolls, like he has a weird, you know, healthy fear of them. Respect your enemy. Yeah. Well, it's more like a, you know, a naturalist who, yeah, you don't want to contend with bears, but you respect that bears are a living thing that deserve to coexist. But you don't want them to get in your Mazda 6. No. No. Is that a car? That's a Mazda. Yeah. That's a smaller, it's a sporty, very small, I don't think a bear could fit in there. I don't think I could fit in there. Good mileage, though. The Mazda 6? Yeah. I think you're going to get high 20s, and that's not bad for a... The red ones are faster. Yeah, for a sportier sedan, especially because they have that rotary engine that gives you good speed. So... Yeah, that's right. You have a Mazda now. That's right. You're a Mazda. We're part of the Mazda. You know all the specs. Positive traction. Exactly. You've got quadraphonic. Hans hunts the trolls with a massive UV apparatus, which exposes them to their greatest weakness, which is sunlight, either real or artificial sunlight. This either turns them to stone, or it detonates them into a big, hairy pond of goo. The two students attempt to document Hans' story before they either get eaten alive, or the government confiscates their footage or silences them altogether. So that's what I've got for description. So, Trav, this was your pick. Yeah, I'm going to let Sean go first. It's been a while since I've seen this. It's been a while. I love this movie because it is so off the wall. It starts off kind of slow, and it's sort of a slow burn early on, but then it ramps up pretty fast, and you just get into it. For the budget that it was, it's a very good movie. Good -looking movie. Good -looking movie? I mean, with a budget of $19 .9 million, you know, you've got to have some assets being put into it. But the nice thing about doing the found footage is you don't have to dedicate resources to good writing and editing. You can just sort of have these real shoddy jump cuts and things just kind of go all over the place. You don't have to actually end it that well. Spoilers, because you wanted to remember how it ends. Basically, the main reporter guy ends up getting rabies, finds out he got rabies from the trolls, and then ends up running away with the footage. Takes the cameras because the government folks are coming to take the footage. Which the government folks are not like dudes in suits with sunglasses. It's just like a guy in a parka. Oh yeah, we're going to take your footage, okay? Hey, you can't have footage? I'm going to take that from you? We'll give you 4 ,000 scuba for your footage. We've got to put that joke to bed, guys. I'm sorry. You opened that can of worms. You created a monster. I apologize to all Norwegians. But, I mean, it just sort of ends. It just sort of like he runs away with the camera and then there's, you know, some text on a black screen of exposition of this is what we think happened. This is unsubstantiated. Faux exposition. Yeah, faux exposition. Multiple experts have analyzed this footage and determined it's authentic. It's like, okay. But it's fun. It's a fun movie. It's goofy. It's a little, I wouldn't even say like sci -fi or horror. Dark comedy? Yeah, I get a lot of comments about that. I guess. Yeah, because there are really comedic moments, right? Like they hired the Muslim camerawoman and they're talking about whether or not her fact that she's a Muslim will attract - Does she believe in God? Is she? It's Christians? I don't know. We'll find out. Whatever. Yeah. It's a little bit like Gremlins 2. Like, wait a minute. They can't eat after midnight. I mean, it's always midnight somewhere and it pops out. It reminds me of the scene in Clue where they find the dead body again after finding so many dead bodies and they're just like, go to the other room, see the dead body. It's like, she's Muslim. Does that count? We'll find out. We'll see. We'll see how hungry they are. We'll do it for science. But yeah, I just love, I love the lore building of like the trolls are, they follow all these old rules. Like he's putting tires under bridges because trolls live under bridges, obviously. Yeah. Yeah. You know, and it's like, oh, they eat the bones of, or they smell the blood of a Christian man. It's like that's what sets them off. And then he comes walking into the big, like the, the bear suit that's like a suit of armor. I think, yeah, when he's under the, yes, because he has to take the blood from the troll. And so to do that, he has this giant, ridiculous syringe. Yeah. Just goofy. Yeah. Just goofy. I can tell they had a lot of fun making the movie, but it's, it's good. It's a romp. Yeah, it is. And yeah, it hits on all those, to me, I mean, I put the word Tolkien -esque in my notes of like, it hits the Tolkien -esque tropes. I mean, obviously it goes further than that, further back from that, like folk tales of trolls, but you also, I got to put like the Hobbit vibe, you know, the trolls turning into stone. Turning into stone. Yeah. But with like a tinge of bureaucracy. Yeah. There's a little bit of like that sort of, I don't know, pseudo X -Files thing of like, we've got to cover this up, you know, the government's got to step in and never happened. But, you know, of course that's exactly what it would look like if the government did have a troll hunting agency is he would have to fill out this form of like troll extermination. Yeah. But yeah, it's not some guys in some bad -ass car in black suits, it's like some guy in a Saab with a vest on like, oh yeah, let me see your footage over there. I'm going to have to delete your camera. It also reminded me somewhat of Blade where they're like fighting some old, you know, folkloric beast with like all the tech of today. It was just like, but on a shoestring budget, like Blade and Whistler where they're like, we're not exactly the March of Dimes or Hellboy. Yeah. We're just grabbing stuff. Well, no, Hellboy had a whole, you know, like a group behind him. I don't know, Blade had some cool tech though. Blade did. And a bad -ass car. But they were, you know, just a shoestring budget trying to, they're upset that their department doesn't get more funding. Right. They're like, this is what we got. He's just, he's like, I'm tired. I don't get vacation. Like, I just, I don't care. Yeah, you can film me. I don't care. I go where I'm needed. Great weather. I have that in my notes. I was like, I feel like Travis. I'm watching Sun and like in for my like rating, it's like, this is good weather. This is like good, foggy, rainy weather. I love it. And you know, they cut to like the mountains and the kind of cool, misty, you know, again, like Lord of the Rings vibe, the cool, misty mountains. And it's like good weather, you know? Yeah. I felt right at home in this flick. And I love, like you said that. Yeah, I've been saying that for years. You said like Quint from Jaws. That's exactly what I was thinking, too, is that when they have to, when they were filming him from afar, you know, found footage films are kind of difficult to do ever since what Blair Witch Project, obviously quintessential. Cloverfield also did it well. I love a giant kaiju monster. Paranormal activity? I have never seen any of the paranormals. Well, maybe I'm kind of a giant pussy. Come on. OK, well, hey, we got October coming up. That's true. But I think there's oh, I might have seen the end of quarantine, the one where there's like zombies. There's like a fire or something and news crew goes in there and they have to close. They have to quarantine the building or something. They're like, shit, there's something in here with us. I think I've seen that. Maybe. So I've heard good things about that. And it was a remake of a foreign film, I think. But those Quarantinos. Yes. But I hadn't seen a found footage from Robert Rodriguez's band. Yeah, I hadn't seen a found footage film in a while. And this one was actually the reason I got Netflix, because I was stealing my brother's Netflix. He was trying to watch something at the same time. And I was like, ah, fuck it. Fine, I'm going to buy it. So I watched this whenever it was on Netflix and I had heard good things about it. Which it's not anymore. Yeah, it's not. Couldn't find that anywhere. Bastards. Yeah, but I love the the fact that, you know, with not a huge budget, they're able to do more with less. I mean, all their money obviously went into the special effects and the trolls, which looked damn good. They looked really good. Yeah. You would think with this on paper, you're like, this is not going to be great. But it. Yeah, it looked lovely. It's a huge, giant fucking Godzilla troll at the end. First of all, where the fuck is he sleeping? Like how is he in the mountains? He's in the mountains. Yeah. But God, that thing's dick as big as a 40 foot long school bus. I don't know. I'm at school. I just said bus. I don't know why I said school bus. But yeah, I loved Hans in it. He was just fed up and was like, fuck this. But I was very pleasantly surprised when I saw it. And then there's a pseudo, not a sequel exactly, but kind of along the same vein, a movie named Just Troll came out in 2022.
A highlight from M.W.A.E.P.
"Hello there, Dennis Prager with Julie Hartman. Dennis and Julie. Best time of the week. That was sweet. That's true. I love it too. Isn't that something? Okay, we won't wax about our enjoyment of what we do together. It can start grating on people. And for some it has. And we know, we're aware. Well, for those of you who don't know, this has actually preoccupied me. So very recently, and I'm sure all of you, certainly in the United States, are aware of the once in 80 something years, in other words, not since 1939 was there a tropical storm in Southern California or maybe California. We don't get that. I mean, Florida gets it. The East Coast gets it. Other places. So people, namely the National Weather Service, the state of California, the county of Los Angeles, it was like COVID. Schools were shut down. Government offices were shut down. People were warned, constantly stay home unless it is an emergency. This is life -threatening. I have a picture of the notice on my phone. Well, I attended a wedding that weekend. The warnings were for Sunday night. That Sunday night, I was to attend a wedding, which I did. The groom told me, and to his great credit, he was not engaged in self -pity. He just noted 40 people. And I would say the entire number of people there was 100. So there would have been 140. 40 didn't come. Because of this hurricane. Right. So now what everybody listening and watching needs to understand is Sunday night, it rained in Southern California. That's all it did. There were no winds. Not lightning from my part of town. That's an interesting point. Right. And regularly in Southern California, there are heavier rainstorms. It was just raining. That was the entirety. Now, there were parts outside of LA County where people were knee -deep in water. That's also very common. When there's a heavy rain, there's some flooding. It's part of life. So I was thinking, oh, I was very angry at the 40 people who didn't come to their wedding. It's so sad for the bride and groom. I mean, God bless them for enjoying their day. Even if zero people show up, you're getting married. It's a sacred, beautiful thing. But that must have been difficult for them. I would be sad and upset if 40 people, a large percentage, didn't show up. I got to tell you, I would pay any one of them money, good money, to come on my show and explain why they didn't go to the wedding. Well, in fairness to some, maybe they were flying and their flights were canceled or something. But do you think it was primarily local? No, no, no. They were in LA. No, no, no. And some had already arrived a day earlier. Nobody flew in that day. And the flights were not canceled. There was no reason to cancel a flight. Nothing happened. That's true. I actually was going to visit my sister on Sunday. She lives near LAX and I was watching planes take off and land in the rain. Flights were resuming. Resuming is not even the right word. They were going on. Resuming is fine. But they were never paused. Oh yeah, that's correct. So it's not the correct word. Okay. I was trying to bail you out. I know. Thank you. I appreciate it. I know you do. They closed the schools. I know. That's absurd. Truly absurd. How many parents won't complain? Well, you said on your radio show 1%. I would agree, but I actually think a lot more would write emails if they didn't think that they or their children would be penalized for doing so. I think that a lot of parents would fear that they would be labeled as climate change deniers, complainers, not trusting of the government and its supreme wisdom and authority. These parents would be seen as being hard on teachers who may not have access to transportation to get to schools. I mean, that's honestly what I think would prevent the parent more than anything else from sending an email to the school. And that's a whole problem unto its own. Yes, that is. So my very, very dark conclusion is one I wrote about. I actually read it on my radio show. You read my book, Think a Second Time, my book of essays? Of course, yes. I've read all your books. Yeah, you did. Okay. Except Deuteronomy. Except Deuteronomy. Yeah, I haven't read that yet. So I have an essay in there. I mean, I'm very proud of this fact because I wrote this in the late 1990s, a long time ago. And I wrote an essay about an experience I had. And in a nutshell, I was to give a speech in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, which is a suburb of Philadelphia. And so I arrived the day before in New York City, stayed overnight at a hotel in Manhattan, had a rental car. All night and when I woke up, do not drive blizzard storm conditions unless it is an emergency. Do not drive. I looked out the window of my hotel room. I remember this so vividly. And it looked to me like there was about one inch of snow on the ground. So I remember thinking, because I still had not yet realized what I now realize, people are so influenced by media that it is more influential than their own experience. Yes. This is critical. This is why it's so dark. So I thought, oh, well, I guess it's in New Jersey. It's horrible. Of course, it was a stupid comment because how far is Manhattan from New Jersey? You know, one of the tunnels or the George Washington Bridge. So I left three hours early and I got there three hours early. There was no traffic. Everybody listened to the radio and TV. And that awakened me to the ease with which people can be brainwashed. You are experiencing the opposite of what we're saying and you believe us. Well, that's the comment that I made. I remember on Dennis and Julie while I was still in college. I one remember day walking in Harvard Yard and this hit me like a lightning bolt, a real one, not a government fake one that may or may not have occurred during a fake hurricane. Anyway, I remember walking in the yard and going, what people are fighting against, what occupies so much of their time, the money that goes to grants and research projects and theses at this university doesn't exist. I mean, not that I shouldn't say doesn't exist, obviously. Small amounts of racism in the United States exist. Climate change does exist. Is it the existential threat? But think about that. This whole complex of thought and money and energy and time and it is given to these boogeymen that aren't real. The average student at the American college or university who says that they are fighting against racism has never seen it before a day in their lives. Isn't that amazing? And so you're right. People can be brainwashed so easily against what they see, against what they see or I mean, in the case of racism, don't see racism is totally rampant. I've never seen it. Wouldn't you think if the United States were as systemically racist a place as the left makes it out to be, don't you think we would have met one racist in our lifetime? I have never met a racist in my entire life. Literally not one. Well, I've lived a lot longer than you. The only one I knew was my grandfather. I know you told that on the air. Which was somewhat of a joke. Right. Because he treated, you said you treated black people beautifully. I have never in my life, not only have I never met a racist, I've never even like seen, I've never seen a neo -Nazi holding up a Nazi flag on the street. I've never, I've never even, I can't name one. It's absurd. Well, tell everybody what you pointed out to me. It's brilliant. I think we said this last week, but it's worth repeating. So when I worked for Dennis one summer, one of the things that I helped him out with was going through his massive volume of mail on email and flagging the most important things. And in all of my days and hours spent going through your mail, which by the way was riveting, it could be a show onto its own to talk about the messages you get. I never saw a singular racist email. That is amazing because as I think I said last week, you're a public figure. Forget that you're a conservative public figure.
John Zmirak and Eric Unpack the Latest GOP Debate
"Have the emotional strength. I didn't have the emotional strength to watch the debate the other day, principally because it was almost like seeing the the the the former Soviet Union, the Politburo or something like that. People that are just. From another era, and they they are unable to see what we're talking about right now, that we are on the edge of the abyss of tyranny. The only one who had the guts to say it was Vivek Ramaswami, that that. And when you have people like Mike Pence, I mean, it's mind blowing to me that these people, it would it would it would be like you're you're in the middle of a thunderstorm and they're trying to tell you it's a sunny day. And you are they crazy? Are they like what is going on? Eric, in your book, Letter of the American Church, which I can't recommend highly now, you talk about how did the Christian church in Germany let the Nazis take over in the Holocaust happen? And the answer is very simple. Mike Pence, the Christians in Germany were like Mike Pence. Mike Pence is so proud of the fact that he certified fraudulent electors because he followed all the rules of the Constitution as his high paid lawyer told him was the safe thing to do. Mike Pence didn't do the constitutional thing. He did the safe thing. Mike Pence has done the safe thing his entire life. If the early church had been like Mike Pence, there would be one very safe Christian neighborhood on the in the suburbs of Jerusalem and nowhere else on earth. Christianity would exist in one gated community with a nine hole golf course and a very nice little social club and a very good school system. And it would it would still it would be the most obscure little religion, this little suburban cult compound on the outskirts of Jerusalem. Christianity would not have spread to streets over because I heard that streets not safe. If Mike Pence represents Christianity, it's the biggest joke in the history of the world,

A highlight from Trump Mugshot Merchandise? with Rudy Giuliani and Kane
"We are representing a second whistleblower from the FBI, Marcus Allen. Due to whistleblower retaliation by the FBI, I've been suspended without pay for over a year. Because of you, ACLJ donors, you get the best attorneys in the world. Hey, everybody found the Charlie Kirk show. Rudy Giuliani and Citizen Kane join us. Rudy Giuliani is going through a tough time right now. We have to back him. Email us your thoughts as always freedom at charliekirk .com and subscribe to our podcast and get involved with Turning Point USA at tpusa .com. That is tpusa .com. Buckle up, everybody. Here we go. Charlie, what you've done is incredible here. Maybe Charlie Kirk is on the college campus. I want you to know we are lucky to have Charlie Kirk. Charlie Kirk's running the White House, folks. I want to thank Charlie. He's an incredible guy. His spirit, his love of this country. He's done an amazing job building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created, Turning Point USA. We will not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries, destroyed lives, and we are going to fight for freedom on campuses across the country. That's why we are here. Brought to you by the loan experts I trust, Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific Mortgage at andrewandtodd .com. We have a tendency on this show to ignore all the chatter from the Vichy French Republicans. When somebody is under attack unjustly, they always have a place on the Charlie Kirk show. We've done this over the last couple of weeks, especially, and we're going to keep on doing this. And America's mayor, a decent man, an honorable man, is under attack in a disgusting way. And I think we all have to rally behind Rudy Giuliani. Rudy Giuliani has done nothing wrong. Rudy Giuliani is under attack because he was loyal to Trump and loyal to the country. And he joins us now. Mayor Giuliani, thank you for taking the time. First, how are you doing? And your response now being booked in Fulton County, Georgia. Well, thank you very much, Charlie, for that introduction. And I respect you for doing this, not only for me, but for all of the other people that are unjustly charged who maybe don't get as much attention. I have the benefit of getting a great deal of attention for what's been done to me. I have tremendous experience in this area, and I've been through far worse than this. There are a lot of people going through it for the first time, and it's terrible. But it's almost impossible to describe if you were brought up like a normal American. I wake up mornings thinking I'm not in America. I wake up mornings thinking I'm in what used to be described as the Soviet Union or East Berlin or maybe even Nazi Germany. The idea that people can be charged based on politics, even if you just posit the following. Right now, we have under indictment based on the indictments of four different Democrat district attorneys, all very questionable different attorneys. The strongest and most powerful candidate of the opposition party for president, who was the prior president. Now, that never happened in America before because we're a democracy and a country of laws. It does happen in communist countries, fascist countries, Nazi countries and totalitarian states. If that doesn't frighten the hell out of us, nothing will. So, Rudy, walk us through, I mean, you in a different time, you were one of the top prosecutors on the planet going after actual RICO cases, actual gangsters. And for doing nothing wrong now, they are coming after you for the same sort of similar charge that you once prosecuted. They don't know RICO if it hit him across the face. No, they don't. I mean, they've made unbelievable errors. I wish that the professor who wrote this, Professor Blakey, could be here because I think he'd give him an F minus. You know, missing from the RICO case is the extortion. People say, well, is it organized crime? And actually, it's crime by a very large organization over a very long period of time that has at the core of it very serious extortion. For example, if Trump had called the AG and said, get me 11000 votes, which, by the way, the president meant out of the 200000 that you and I know was stolen. And I know that for a fact, because that AG had sitting in his desk a report that he was hiding that virtually says that. Now, nobody tells you that, but it came out eight months, eight months later with a John Solomon request. FOIA But in any event, it would have to have been magic words there, words like, if you don't do it, I'm going to break your legs. If you don't do it, I'm going to shoot your wife. Those are the cases I prosecuted, not cases where people are persuading, people are debating, people are even arguing. We're all entitled to do that because of the First Amendment. What we're not entitled to do is to threaten harm and we're actually entitled to threaten harm as long as we don't have the means to carry it out. But we didn't even get to that stage. So this is a ridiculous RICO case. It's a ridiculous case to start with. And the worst part of it is it's a frontal attack on the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. It will deter other people from contesting elections that may very well have been stolen from them. And the only way they're going to find out is to go to court and aggressively argue their position. And this is in order to ensure a single party state. That's exactly right, Mr. Mayor. So I need to ask you, do you think that part of the reason they went so wide on the RICO is to try to get you to turn against Donald Trump in a multilevel kind of gangster type indictment? Do you think that's what they're trying to do here, Mr. Mayor? Yeah, I mean, they could get me to turn on Donald Trump and Donald Trump would turn out to be innocent. I mean, people say to me, are you going to cooperate? I'm happy to cooperate. I don't know a single damn thing that suggested Donald Trump committed a crime. You want me to tell you what happened? I'd be happy to tell you what happened. And look, I've already, Charlie, gone through my house being raided, my iCloud account taken for three years and spied on. And the day they took my iCloud account was the first day that I represented Donald Trump. And the day they gave it up was the day that I stopped representing him. So they took it in order to spy on Donald Trump. And then about eight months ago, they wrote a letter to the grand jury after costing me three or four million dollars in my law practice that there's no evidence over 20 years that I committed a crime. And then this Fannie Willis comes up with this garbage in Atlanta, which is me being a lawyer as well as Professor Eastman and the others. We were acting as lawyers. I mean, you used to think you got some protection for that. But Donald Trump has no First Amendment rights. Donald Trump has no right to counsel. I mean, they raided my law office. When I was a prosecutor, which I did a lot better than they ever did, I never raided a lawyer's office. Yeah, and I had lawyers representing the mafia, terrorists, Nazis. I had a lot better reason to do it than in an election dispute. So this is an assault on our Constitution. No one is exaggerating. And the president certainly isn't. When he says to people, it is very likely this administration continues. This can happen to you. So, Rudy, you're going to have to defend yourself. And in this particular venue, how can people help you with your legal fees and the costs associated with that? I'll get for you the exact place. But we have a legal defense fund, which they can help out with. It'll allow us not only to defend ourselves, but to become more aggressive and to go after them and try to get the information that they have. Because the strange thing is, Charlie, the crimes being committed here are being committed by them. I mean, this is Chapter 7. This is Chapter 7 in a book that begins with a Russian collusion. So that book has a conclusion, right? That conclusion is Democrats lying, Trump, Giuliani, Republicans telling the truth. And then there's another book, Improper Conversation with Ukrainian President Leading to Impeachment. That has a conclusion also. Democrats lying, particularly shifty -shift, Trump, Giuliani, Republicans telling the truth. Then we got the hard drive for which, if you go back and pick out the last debate, you see Biden accusing us, the president and I, of being Russian pawned. In fact, he calls me specifically, Rudy Giuliani, a Russian pawn. Well, that ends up 16 months later with Democrats and Biden lying, Trump, Giuliani and Republicans telling the truth. Now, I go on and on. There's no reason to believe that these aren't going to end up the same way. The sides didn't change here. I mean, the lifetime criminals, the Biden crime family didn't all of a sudden change and become honest. Believe me. If you could get that link or whatever for us so that we could promote it. I'll get the link for you. OK. Yeah. I just want to reiterate here on The Charlie Kirk Show, we are proud to be a place of political asylum. If you're under attack, you're going through a crisis and you're a good person. You are welcome on this program. Most of the Vichy French media run away. Oh, we don't want Rudy. We don't want that's not what we do here. One of the reasons why the left is taking over the country is we turn our back on our own far too easily. We're here to change that. Rudy Giuliani has done great service to this country and he is welcome anytime.
Dennis Talks to Marissa Streit, CEO of PragerU
"Have the CEO of PragerU on the line, Marissa Streit. Marissa is one of the five top arguments I have for God's existence. Is that fair? And my fellow religious believer agrees with me. Marissa Streit, hello. Hi, Dennis. It's good to be here. You ever been introduced as an argument for God's existence? I do humble me. I'm glad the video can't pipe in through because I'm very red right now. Is it true you have news? I have amazing news, Dennis. Are you ready? I am. So our education initiative, which is making videos, magazines, and turnkey lesson plans for schools, we announced a few weeks ago that we were approved in Florida. And today, it's my pleasure to announce that we are making it into Texas as well. And so we now have another state by our side. The great state of Texas is now going to introduce PragerU kids in school. I have the chills. I really do. So you know what's going to be interesting to me? Well, the New York Times, Washington Post, Miami Herald, Chicago Papers, LA Times, NPR, CBS, CNN, will they all go on round two of the same attacks on PragerU? And that's probably all they can do is these ad hominem attacks and lies on us because, you know, truth is not on their side. I don't know if you caught the New York Times op -ed from last week, but one of the claims they make in there is how upset they are that PragerU is undoing all the supposed great work of Howard Zinn in teaching American history. Right. Howard Zinn, for those who don't know, Howard Zinn wrote a popular history of the United States. And all of my life, I have characterized it as a proctologist's view of America. America is seen through the anal cavity. It's a despicable work. He hated the country. I had him on my show. To his credit, he came on. People can actually hear of this interview. Marisa, I'm just letting all of my listeners know this. And I asked him, did America ever enter a justified war? And he wouldn't answer. He just, you know, something to the effect it's difficult to say. He said, what about World War II? He said, I'm not even certain about that. How's that? That's the Left's hero. He couldn't even say that the war against the Nazis was a moral war. Yeah, I mean, the sad thing is that people believe this stuff. And so the attacks against us have just been vicious. And they're, I mean, I want to use the word unfair, but that would be an understatement. It is unbelievable what we went through since we announced Florida. And I do anticipate that it's not going to get any easier with Texas. But, you know, we're here to help save America's mind. And we're here to keep going no matter what attacks we experience. And, you know, Dennis, I'll just share with you a little from my heart. I truly believe that this is a spiritual battle. It's been an emotional and spiritual battle over the last two weeks. I've seen attacks come from all directions. And I know that many of your listeners have been very supportive of us. They've been writing in, you know, telling us to keep strong. And it's thanks to, you know, it's thanks to the support that we've received that we're just going to keep
A highlight from Season Finale #12
"And really America's the bad guy. But who knows? I personally believe that a lot of the Nazis, they got into very, very powerful places in government right? And slowly over time instilled people, certain people with their ideologies all around the world. So Britain, Russia, America, Germany. And that is how certain things, that's how certain types of groups formed. You there? Do you think America will split? Yo, what's up? Not much. I didn't think you would get in. Oh, yeah, no. Yeah, I had to do a couple things too. You know, today, I'm not going to lie. Today was pretty much not my day. But you know, it is what it is. When's our day? Let's talk about how we can be compressed and how we can take over the White House. All right. I'm going to show for once. I'm going to be specifically careful what I say. Because I'm not going to lie, there's still things I want to do before we make this happen. I know. In life. I know. Be careful what you say. We all have plans. Yeah. I have plans to build a bloody monopoly. I'll just say that. I'm kidding, of course. But anyway, so you said something about taking over the White House? I mean, by running in 2040. I mean, taking over by running. Yeah, no. I think we need to run for government. I think we can do a lot more better things. We can basically help the country to an extent more than what Biden can do. But I'm not going into it that I've asked. I have no power. I don't have no power. The President has more power than you when he makes on. But yeah, let's dive in. Anything you want to say, Eric? All right. What happened? Anything you want to say? Nah. Nah. Not at this moment. Not at, like, right now. I can't really think of anything right now. Just one more time. Who do you think will win 24? At this point, I'm thinking Trump will win. Do you hope? Yeah. Yeah, no. Yeah, I wasn't saying that in like a negative. Oh, Trump's going to win. Like, yeah. I would hope. But... The ideological crazy left seeing how bent on fucking getting this guy arrested. Even if he's done fucking nothing wrong. If you're going after him, you need to go after Biden. There's evidence... They're not going to go after him. Eric, there's a partly document saying that he apparently had a secret email. Really? Called Peter something. Peter, right? Why is he called Peter? Why is he called himself Peter? I think it was Howson or something like that. Do you remember the photo where it said, you know, Peter? Yeah, yeah. Peter. Wow. I wonder what he had on that email. My suspicion was he probably was doing certain type of deals with people. So that was probably the email that he probably used to talk to his son about certain deals with China, Romania, Ukraine, Russia. He did deals with a lot of people. Was this when he wasn't... This is when he was vice VP. Oh, VP. Okay. And for God knows, this could be when he was president as well. For all we know. Apparently Obama has a brother. Does he? I mean, I saw it on Illuminati, but he said his brother said he sold his soul. He sold his soul pretty much, which he did. But, you know, it is what it is. I'm pretty sure everybody that is in Hollywood... I'm pretty sure we would have to sell our souls. We really want to get off their power. Yeah, we would. But I'm not sure I really want to do that. Yeah. Yeah. We would definitely have to do that. I'm going to shoot the Pope sold his soul. Clearly he was almost trying to suck the dick of the Rothschilds. And the Rockefellers. It's unfortunate. But now we know who he battles down to. He was kissing the ass of world leaders and they were just getting very fancy with those guys. Okay. Do you think at one point his intentions were genuine and they got something on him and now he's doing that? Yep. They probably got dirt on everyone. The ones that watch him. I've realized long and long ago that every agency, every thing, they don't work for the people. They work for the deep state. They work for the people that actually control the world. They keep us in line. We've got to watch what we say because let's be real here. Some bastard will take out contacts and probably we could get raided. We'd put past them. I think we could do some very good things in the White House and I think we'd make a very good team. I think we could make some positive changes alike. So let's run through some bills we want to do. Number one, we want to investigate. We don't want to invest that way. We want to prosecute big pharma for COVID. We want to prosecute them for literally doing zero trials on COVID, tests on COVID. We want to prosecute them on literally drugging the entire population of America. We want to basically, we want to go after these companies to make healthier foods and have less carbohydrates, certain things in it. In the food that basically puts so much chemicals in food and makes people fat in America. Yeah, and it makes men grow and it makes men get titties and lose testosterone too. It wouldn't surprise me. Number three, we would like to reaffirm the constitution and make it and basically undo any of the bullshit that is going to get pushed through by the Joker administration. Number three, Walter, how are we going to lower the debt of this country? I don't, I'll be honest, it would take... Yeah, it's impossible. We would objectively have to restart the whole thing. It is what it is. I mean, we could try and pay it back, but it would take... So what would happen in that aspect? Would everybody lose their money and would everybody lose their shares? We would probably try and put it in a way where people don't lose their money. We would just say like, you know, look, you know, you can't use your money. You can't use your money for a couple of days or a week. We'll try and make it a week. What if we backed it by a... Actually, no. We would tell them to take out a good amount of money that you can live off of. Take out most of your money. Basically take out all of your money. We're going to back it. What if we backed it by something else? What if we backed it by Bitcoin? Yeah, that's a great idea actually. Back the currency by Bitcoin and basically for everyone... Basically one dollar is backed by one Bitcoin. So for every one Bitcoin and basically the money would stay on the ledger, right? So basically it could be backed by Bitcoin or we basically make a hash or we basically make another version of it or we basically make a separate version. That basically follows Bitcoin, right? But it's not 100 % backed by it but it's 80 % to 90 % backed by it and it's also backed by movie reserves of maybe like silver or gold.
A highlight from James Lindsay (continued)
"Welcome to The Eric Metaxas Show. Do you like your gravy thick and rich and loaded with creamy mushrooms? If no one was looking, would you chug the whole gravy boat? Chug, chug, chug, chug. Stay tuned. Here comes Mr. Chug -a -lug himself, Eric Metaxas. Welcome back. Can we continue our conversation with James Lindsay? I didn't say earlier, but you, James, are the founder of New Discourses, which is a journal, like an actual journal, where maybe people would want to read what you write or what is written in New Discourses. And you've written a number of books. So this kind of blows up and you and your colleagues become famous for having pulled off this brilliant hoax on the insane academic world, woke, super woke academic world. So the Wall Street Journal got involved. We cooperated with the journalist there pretty much from the beginning. And she ends up breaking the in story early October of 2018. The New York Times put it on the front page, believe it or not, on October 5th. They actually gave us, I have a copy still to this day, they gave us fair treatment. They didn't exactly give us a glowing review for a recommendation for what we had done, but they gave us quite fair treatment even in the New York Times. And it ended up blowing up all over the place. I think it made the print edition of newspapers around the world in over four or five hundred places. Even the South China Daily had us with a photograph of us in their newspaper, which is from Shanghai mainland China. And they had talked about this. So it really made worldwide headlines for about a month or so and ended up, we were on just about every show in the world, maybe except yours, just teasing you. But for a while, I mean, Joe Rogan had Peter and I on and that got a ton of attention. And, you know, we ended up doing media, media, media for like six, eight months. And that turned out to be interesting and fun, but as it is a bit of a distraction. But one of Peter had another project he was working on, so he kind of diverted. But Helen and I sat down and decided we needed to tell the world what we learned doing this, but without pointing back to the thing itself. So we wrote a book that's got a lot of attention since that's called Cynical Theories, which outlines that there are deep postmodern theory roots to like, how did we do this? What did we understand? In the book, we never talk about this grievance studies, fake articles, hoax thing at all. But we talk about what we learned about what are the roots of gender studies of critical race theory, post -colonial theory. And we traced back not the entire historical register, but back through the postmodern philosophers of Foucault and Derrida and Baudrillard and Lyotard and so on. Well, so, I mean, I think we're in agreement, obviously, that this stuff is nonsense, but you are trying to dissect it to determine how does this nonsense work? What occurs to me, you know, as you've been talking is that the humorlessness that you see whenever you're dealing with these strident ideological movements, you saw it in the French Revolution, you saw it in the Soviet Union, you saw it with the Nazis, you see it in China, the Chinese Cultural Revolution, that you are not permitted to joke, you're not permitted. I mean, but that is interesting to me, because I think most people would know that there's something fundamentally human about joking, about laughter, because it's allied with truth -telling. You know, we know that that's what the court gesture was. He was a truth -teller. And that oftentimes humor is simply truth -telling in an environment that's maybe a little bit uncomfortable, so people laugh because you said what they're all thinking.

Today's guest is Anita Pausch, Bitcoin educator, founder of Bitcoin for Fairness and author of Learn Bitcoin. Welcome, Anita. Hi, Laura. Thank you very much for the invitation. I'm honored to be here. I'm excited to have you. You work on so many different things related to Bitcoin. Why don't you just give us an overview of your work? I guess it's almost too much sometimes for my personal life. So, yeah, my main focus is on Bitcoin education, and I founded a nonprofit initiative called Bitcoin for Fairness, which brings knowledge or shares knowledge with people on the ground in the global south. And the last year I spent around eight months in southern African countries to support local initiatives with building Bitcoin communities, meetups, and of course, to share knowledge there and build knowledge on the ground. And two years ago, I published a book called Learn Bitcoin, which is a book for beginners, which basically speeds you up from zero to a self custody Bitcoin holder. So a real Bitcoin holder. And yeah, and besides that, I'm part of the C4 cryptocurrency certification consortium, Bitcoin Professional Committee. So I also help there to establish standards of education and knowledge of Bitcoin for people in the professional space. And at the moment, I'm just building a online learning program. Maybe we can talk about that later. So I do a lot of things. And also I'm testing wallets, for instance, in rural areas in Zimbabwe and see if they are working or not. And yeah, so I try to contribute my part to the Bitcoin adoption and Bitcoin education. And yeah, that's what I actually spend every day on almost. And how did you get into Bitcoin? That was early 2017. And I was working in web development and web platform development and online products for about 20 years, online marketing and build little businesses. I was an entrepreneur and I always had the feeling or I was looking for something that I'm really, really, really interested in. I mean, internet marketing, et cetera. I liked it. I loved it. But then after 20 years, it felt boring. And I also, we built online platforms for designers, for people who have small businesses. So we had something like Etsy in Austria when Etsy wasn't even in Austria. And when we built that tool, I realized how difficult it was back then to let people pay over the internet in your shop. And we had to pay upfront like 3 ,000 euros or something just to get the possibility to do that. So I learned how complicated that is and how much permissions you need, basically, and how much friction is in that system and how expensive it is. And so in 2016, I thought to myself, oh, I want to do something else and something that really makes more sense for the world than just sell stuff. And then I stumbled upon Bitcoin and I was drawn to it because very early, I think I understood because I had a great teacher in Andreas Antonopoulos, for instance, that Bitcoin is a tool for freedom. And it gives people like me, for instance, I'm a lesbian. I was born in Austria, 53 years ago already. And the first 30 years of my life, I didn't have the same rights as all the other people. And also my grandparents came from Bohemia, you know, they passed borders, they became Austrians. We had hyperinflation a hundred years ago in Austria too. And also they told me a lot about the Nazis in Austria and how life was for them and how shocking the change was suddenly when the Nazis came to Austria. And all these kinds of things, I think, came together. My life story, what I experienced so far, and that Bitcoin can be one of the solutions for people who are disempowered, who are outlawed, the misfits. You know, basically Bitcoin is for them because no one can take it away from you. It gives you the freedom to interact without anyone that can hinder you. And that's what I saw. And that's what I thought is a life -changing tool. Basically, we didn't have that in hundreds of thousands of years, an invention like that. And so I was greatly drawn to that. And that's, I think, where I take my energy from, from that discrimination that I felt here. And I think that for many, many, many people in other countries, life is much worse than for me. And so I think even more for them is a tool for liberation. And that's why I work so hard. And how did you, like, when you first got into Bitcoin, like you said, you had been doing web development. And so how did you go from that to Bitcoin education? Because I think your initiative in Africa, I think it only started in, I don't know, 2021 or 2022. Yeah. I think you just started it when I met you in 2022. That was Bitcoin for fairness. I just started that half a year before. Okay, so from 2017 on, I had to learn myself. That was the first thing. So I still did the marketing stuff and the web design stuff. And at the same time, I taught myself and I learned a lot about Bitcoin. I did the University of Nicosia online curriculum and course to learn more. And I very early started to write my first book, my first learn Bitcoin book, because I thought you can learn the most. If you have to understand everything to write it down for other people to learn it. And also I had a lot of good feedback. I asked people who were much more knowledgeable about it back then as I was and they helped me. And then one of the first things I also did was I translated Andreas Antonopoulos' The Internet of Money to German and learned a lot with that, of course. And I very early in 2018, end of 2018 or something like that, I did my first Bitcoin seminars in Austria and then also an online course in German. And then I took on the podcast because that was actually the first bigger thing where I think people in the English speaking world got to know me. So I did like 160 interviews with all sorts of people from the Bitcoin space, Adam Beck, Andreas Antonopoulos, James Loeb, yeah, on and on to learn myself. The Anita Pausch show, which you apparently have suspended or paused or something. It's paused because I was in Africa and in Zimbabwe, I didn't have internet. I could not record something like this. It's just it's not possible. So I stopped doing it, but I want to start again. And so and in 2020, let me go back a little bit. Like I said, in 2017, 2018, everyone was talking about how Bitcoin can be a tool against hyperinflation, a hedge against inflation, for instance, in Venezuela or in Zimbabwe. And I always was like, aha, that's interesting. And I have a friend who is living in Zimbabwe. And then I thought, OK, so if I think that Bitcoin is a tool of liberation for people in these countries, for people who are living under authoritarian leaders and against inflation. Then I have to go there and see if anyone is really using it because the Bitcoiners are talking about it. So I focused also in my podcast on the global south and on Argentina, Venezuela, I had guests from these countries. And then in early 2020, before the pandemic started, I visited my friend for four weeks in Zimbabwe to understand the problems there in real life, because, you know, we're always talking about it. And it's like, if you're not there and if you don't really see it, if you don't feel it, if you don't have to calculate each day the price of goods again and the next day, it's different than the day before. If you don't feel that yourself, I think you can't really understand the problems of the people. And that was the first time I went there. I also went to Botswana to meet with Alakani Etireleng, who founded the Satoshi Center in Botswana, I think, as early as in 2015 or maybe even earlier. So she's a real pioneer also. And then I went back to Austria because I still had my place here, my apartment and everything. But I knew that I want to go into that direction. And after the travel bans were lifted, I started traveling again to El Salvador when the Bitcoin was introduced there. And then I realized, podcasting is all good and fine, but where is the real education happening? I mean, podcasts are great for education, but there are so many now. I think it's even also difficult to get to have an audience there. And when I saw in Zimbabwe that there is some sort of adoption, yes, some people are knowledgeable about Bitcoin and are using it, but the vast amount of people is not. And there are so many scams down there. Everyone knows Bitcoin. Really, you can ask anyone, they know it, but everyone will ask you, but is it not a scam? Because everyone has been scammed or at least knows someone. And when I was there the last time I was living in a house and the maid, there are still people who have maids there, came to me because she saw a Bitcoin flyer on my desk and she said to me, can you tell me what is this Bitcoin? You are doing something with it. And I said, yeah, I mean, imagine it's like cash, only digital and your government can take it away from you. And she said, uh -huh, uh -huh. And I said, why are you asking? And she said, I'm in a WhatsApp group. And suddenly someone sent me a message saying to me, give me $50 now and in three weeks you get $100. And she said, yeah. And she said, that can't be right, can it? And I said, no. Yeah. So people are bombarded with emails, with messages like that. And I have seen so many people who've lost money and that's really sickening. And I think that's also why I try to get more and more and more education on the ground there so that people can share the knowledge with their own peers and things like that. And so is your sense that the efforts that you are making are, I mean, you know, obviously I'm sure what you're doing is true Bitcoin education in the sense that you're educating people about this technology and like understanding what this is. But is your sense that a lot of the activity in those places is, yeah, more of like using it to perpetrate scams? I mean, yeah, that can be. I mean, but I can't estimate that. I mean, using the name Bitcoin to do scams, of course, yes, they are all using that name. But it's not Bitcoin what they sell, of course. I definitely also a big amount of like exchanging dollars into Bitcoin because people who have dollars and know Bitcoin know that Bitcoin is a hedge against inflation of their own Zimbabwean dollar and also the US dollar also has inflation. But I also saw that a lot of people want to get hold of Bitcoin as a sort of a small investment for themselves. And of course, the rate of usage as a means to be able to send money in and out of the country is going up as well because Zimbabwe, for instance, is a country where you have very strict financial exchange controls. And also, you can't easily send money in and out of the country. I mean, first, no one wants the Zimbabwe dollar. I mean, I wouldn't want it, you know. The US dollar is mostly in banknotes. They only have banknotes. So, I mean, that's the next thing. You only have one dollar notes. And when you go into a shop and something is like 30 US dollar cents, you don't get 70 cents back. You get a small goodie or something. Yeah, so they are using like in the war times in Austria when people use cigarettes as money. You don't get any cash back. So I know people in Zimbabwe, for instance, who have freelancers in other African countries, and it's not easy to send money in and out of the country. And they told me, you know, when I send my freelancer in, I say, Malawi, three or four times money via mobile money or other providers, the government comes and asks me what I'm doing with that money. Why am I sending that money out? And with Bitcoin, I mean, she immediately could send the money from her wallet to the guy's wallet and no problem. Yeah, less costs, less friction, can't be censored. Nobody's questioning why she's doing that. And another big story in Zimbabwe is foreign exchange control also means that if you, for instance, a business in Zimbabwe and you want to buy goods from South Africa or another country. You can't do that with Zimbabwean dollar. So you need US dollar and then you have to go to the central bank of Zimbabwe and say, I would like to buy, let's say, 10 ,000 US dollars because I need them to buy the goods from South Africa. And every week is an auction in the central bank where the central bank decides on the value of the exchange rate from the Zimbabwe dollar to the US dollar. So it's decided it's totally controlled. And then when you get your US dollar granted, so you are allowed to exchange it. It's not that you as the business owner get the money and you pay your partner in South Africa. No, the central bank is paying you on your behalf.
"nazis" Discussed on Stuff You Should Know
"To see my parents. Burger and dash were spared the death penalty because they basically had a hard time proving in court that they didn't, you know, fully intend to betray the operation. Yeah, exactly. Right. So they did not get electrocuted. They were sentenced burger to hard labor for the rest of his life. Yeah. And dash was given 30 years. But president Truman commuted their sentences, released them and deported them, had them shipped to West Germany. West Berlin said don't come back. Nope. Get out. And the other guys are buried in a Potter's field, by the way, and outside Washington. Yes. Which is now the D.C. municipal water treatment plant. Oh, really? Yeah. Where they were buried? Yeah, just right. Now they're part of the system. I guess. And so dash and burger go back to Germany. And burger starts feeding the media, the story. Basically 5 years later. And blames dash for the deaths of these other 6 German patriots. Who were saboteurs, right? And dasch tried to publicly clear himself. He first saw it a pardon in America so that he could come back. Yeah, he really wanted to get out of Germany. Yeah, I can imagine. And America said no. We're not going to do that. We're not going to pardon you. We're still mad at you. Germany said, we're mad at you too. And so he just kind of faded out of the public spotlight. Yep, he ended up dying in 1992 at the age of 89 and I didn't see any follow-up for burger for burger. I think he wasn't quite as vilified as dash was. Right, for sure. But that was not the last time the Germans sent the tours ashore. There was at least one other ill fated attempt in 1944, another German submarine. These are expensive boats, man. Yeah. They are really taking a massive risk to drop off a couple of saboteurs. Yeah. But they did it again off off of Maine. Yep. In a snowstorm. And two former American residents, German Americans, were sent off under the main coast in a snowstorm. They were seen by a local boy scout using a compass during the snowstorm on the side of the road, and the boy scout was suspicious so he'd traced their tracks all the way back to the shoreline where they come out of nowhere and he's like, I'm going to call a police so these guys boy scouts actually caught these guys. Yeah, that's pretty cool. What's ironic is one of these German American saboteurs was a boy scout himself. So it was like boy scout on boy scout handling. Wow. And they got picked up immediately and as far as everybody knows, that's the last time Germany ever tried that. Yeah, I think the idea was that Hitler was like this is embarrassing. Yeah, let's just focus on the rocket program. Yeah, we can't keep sending guys to the United States who immediately get there and start doing stupid things. Right. Giving themselves up, going to see mom and dad. Seeing in movies, playing peanut goal. So that's it. That's the story of the time the Nazis invaded Florida and New York and Maine. If you want to know more about that, check out history net, check out damn interesting. Check out all sorts of stuff. Yes. To search it. You'll find all sorts of cool things on it. I would not look for the movie coming soon to a theater near you. No, the third act nonexistent. No, not really. No, it's just kind of a letdown. Doesn't end with a bang. No. Hands with Germany being mad at them. And America too. Let's see, I think I said Germany's mad. Which means it's time for listener Mayo. I'm going to call this a cute or cutest youngest fan. And it includes an audio clip. Hey guys, did you hear this? Yes, it's pretty great. Yes. My son archer is two and a half years old. Just two and a half. We listen to podcasts together while I rock them to sleep at nap time in bedtime. Anytime he's tired, he says mommy, let's go archer's room and listen to podcast. I usually rotate between stuff you should know in other house stuff works podcast. He's never seemed to have a preference until about two weeks ago when I put another podcast on. He said, no, mommy. Not that podcast. Just stuff you know, the red one. You guys are his favorite, which is fine with me, and I have even attached a voice recording of him requesting your podcast. It was not rehearsed, mind you. It's just me asking him, before his nap time today, and that is from Shawna and Shawna gave his permission to hear from archer. So let's go ahead and play that clip right now. Okay, are you ready to take a nap? Yeah. Do you want to do one to listen to a podcast? Yeah. Okay, which podcast? Stuff you should know. Yeah. Okay. Aw. Wow, pretty cute. Holy cow. Kid knows his stuff. Unbelievable. So archer. If you can understand what's going on here by the sound coming out of the speakers, we know you don't yet form memories. But hopefully this episode will be a documentation of it. That's right, archer so good luck in life you are off to a great start and now take your nap little buddy. Nice. Well, if you want to share with us how your cute kid loves stuff you should know, we love hearing that right chuckers. We do. You can tweet to us that that's why SK podcast.

"Go back to the others. Right. And the guy was probably like, what others? Wait a minute. And so Josh's story was that they were fishermen, stranded fishermen. Yeah. And before he got really suspicious, the guy from the coast guard said, well, if you guys are stranded fishermen, that's my job. Yeah, we have a coast guard like house. Party house. Right up the beach. We just ordered some pizza. Come with me. You guys can eat some pizza. And chill out. And dash is like, well, we don't have any idea on us. Yeah, we don't fishing permits either. Right. We don't want to get in trouble. So it comes like, well, you're telling a guy from the coast guard that. So you're in trouble first of all. But secondly, that strikes me as weird. About that time, burger comes up, S is questioned in German. And dash sees the writing on the wall. And tells colon, well, he says, do you have a mother? And Cohen says, yes, he goes, do you have a father? He says, yes, and dashed as well, then I wouldn't want to kill you. Yeah. So how about I give you some money? You can forget that this ever happened. And he tries to give him a hundred bucks and Collins says, nope. Yeah, he says no, thank you. And he said, he ends up giving him $260 in Cullen basically realize that something was going down and I just need to just take this money and act like I'm down with the take and get out of here. So he does so. He does. He's got adults and then, oh, but not before. This is very key piece, actually. Oh yeah, it is. Josh grabbed his flashlight before he left. And shined it on his own face and said, you will be meeting me in east Hampton sometimes soon. Do you know who I am? I think I was like, no, I don't know who you are, and he said my name is George John Davis. Which was a lie. Well, it was his real alias for the mission, though. So he actually gave him his real alias. And he said, what's your name? And Cullen said Frank Collins, which was a lie. Which was a lie, pretty quick thinking. And basically, he scrambled back and dash came back over and was like, little scene there, guys. I totally took care of it. Right. Should not be a big deal. Don't even worry about pay the guy 260 bucks. Yeah. We're good. So everybody finished bearing these boxes, which they did. And Colin ran off and went and grabbed some of his fellow coast guardsmen. By the time they got back, team Einstein had left. Yeah, they went and called a train. But apparently, and this is another thing so the U boat that dropped off team ice had grounded itself on a sandbar and was sitting there like trying to get back out to sea because dawn was just rocked back and forth in your chair. Was that what it looked like? Was that the method they had all the guys in there? Yeah, just moving to the left. To the right. Right, exactly. Yeah. And finally, the tide came in just enough for them to dislodge themselves and go back out to sea just in time, but apparently colon and the other coast guardsmen who came back caught sight of this U boat heading back out to sea. Yeah, not good, right? Yeah. No. German, U boat off the coast of Long Island, just ran into some guys who are speaking German and tried to pay you off. And then now all of a sudden in the moonlight, you can see the ghostly outlines of four freshly dug holes in the sand, let's see what's in there. Yeah, I wonder if I couldn't find I saw that about the boat being stuck, but I couldn't find if that was like if they could have gotten away, you know, it could have all changed. They might not have been that suspicious. I think that Cohen was he was on it. Appropriately suspicious. Yeah, he was definitely coming back. But seeing the U boat was just icing on the cake. Exactly. Okay. So the other dudes had hop date. Well, they dug up the holes and they found the stuff and said, okay, this is a huge deal. Yeah, we just found a trove of explosives in German military uniforms, buried on the beach, like 60 miles from New York. Yeah, so toots sweet by ten 23 that morning, those boxes were in the office of New York City, police captain John Bayless, who then promptly got in touch with the FBI and by noon that day, 13 hours after they had arrived. The FBI had all that stuff in custody and J. Edgar Hoover said there's a we need to get a blackout on the news. So these guys don't get wise to this. And we need to get the largest manhunt in FBI history underway. And they did, and we will explore that in all the ways the FBI got some lucky breaks on this right after these

So check tell us about the smiling faces on team survive. Well, Josh. Teams 5 was led by a man named Edward curling or edvard, I guess. Who is I take it as the only competent person in this entire mission? Yeah, he seemed like it, right? Kind of. A little more than the rest? Yeah. Comparatively speaking, he seemed like a criminal genius. Yeah, that's a good point. So he was also one of had gone to America in 1929 to work, married a German woman there, and then they worked together as butler butler and cook for a little while and then he said, you know what? I don't like you anymore. I think I want an American woman. So he did that. And then when the war broke out, he tried to sail to Germany. So I'm not sure if he was a mastermind either. Now that I think about it. Well, he showed a lot of initiative. Well, good point. And he was turned back by the coast guard, but he finally made it to Germany in 1940. And he ended up working at the ministry of propaganda. Yeah, I guess with goebbels, huh? Yeah, sure. And when he tried to sail to Germany that one time, he actually had a guy with him named, was it Herbert newbauer, I believe? I was new on his boat. Yeah, he was on that crew. And so he would have been turned back as well. So he was a natural fit. Right. Didn't know each other. And curling actually recommended Herman new Bauer. To be part of the team. He's like, he can hoist a sale. Yeah. What else do you need to know? He was in the boon, who cares? That was the youngest member of his crew at 22 as Herbert helped. And he moved to the U.S. when he was just 5 years old. And so I don't know that he was a great choice because he was practically American. Yeah, and you know, he was also not so smart. Or put it this way. Experienced he was not experienced. A little green. A little wet behind the ears. Sure. And then the last guy, varner thiel, he surprised surprise as a member of the boon, and he was working in a war plan. So just this weird hodgepodge ragtag group of guys were selected. Only two people out of the whole original 12 were, had been in the military. Yeah, this sounds like a movie in the making. Oh yeah. But it just, if it would have had a great third act, it probably would already be a movie. Oh yeah. You know what I'm saying? Yeah, it is lacking a third act. I imagine if someone had tried to develop this or this sounds great so far, it's going great. And then that's how it ends? Yeah. Shelf it. Yeah. So these guys are put together. They're sent to the school to learn jiu-jitsu. And the oldest guy, George dash, is like, low kick, low click. Ah, my hip. Yeah. You know? Yeah, they were also studying explosive techniques and wiring, not just explosive jiu-jitsu techniques. But real explosive. Right. Wiring detonation, timers, all of this stuff. They got to go on field trips to power plants and bridges and canals and see where the weak points were. And all of this took place over an intensive 18 days of training. That's it. They got 18 days of training. Yeah, and apparently Josh, the leader of team Einstein wasn't even a red one account that said he basically kind of snoozed through most of it. Which would go on to explain a few things later. It's hilarious. Yeah. 18 days and you can't even stay awake to learn how to blow something up. Seriously. All right, on May 23rd, they were given their assignment. And these were, I mean, this is pretty smart. The assignments were. They had a good plan in place. Small teams of dudes, dasha's team was assigned to destroy quite a few things. Hydroelectric plants at Niagara Falls. Makes sense. The aluminum company of America, the factory in Illinois, Tennessee, New York, three plants, and the Philadelphia salt companies cry like plant, which apparently supplies raw material materials for aluminum. Right, and the reason they wanted to go after aluminum was because aluminum production in the United States, the output was greater than all of Europe's. Both sides access or no, I'm sorry, all of the axis aluminum production put together. And aluminum is a very, very valuable thing during war. You just to make aircraft frames. Oh yeah. You use it to make the interiors of ships. Apparently you use it for everything from MREs, like the field ration tink hands or walnut tin cans aluminum can. But all of this stuff comes in handy. Pinwheels. If you can, sure, pinwheels. Like the good ones? Yeah. But this man, you can cut your finger off of one of those things. If you can cripple aluminum production, you can put a serious in the wartime effort. Yeah, it was a smart play. And then they are also told to bomb locks on the Ohio River between Louisville, Kentucky and Pittsburgh. Yes. So disrupting transportation that would have been a huge deal. They would just strap a bomb to a pack mule that was supposed to be pulling a boat along the canal. And kaboom. So that's team heights. Team spy. Curling's team. They said, all right, you guys, we want you to concentrate on railroads. Because we saw during the American Civil War destroying railroads is a great way to cripple an army. Sure. And I don't think that's where they got the idea. It's long been a wartime thing to destroy railroads. I see. Pennsylvania railroad station at Newark. The horseshoe bend section of railroad track near Altoona, Pennsylvania. Chesapeake and Ohio railroad, parts of it, the New York central railroads hell Gate Bridge. Locks and canals in St. Louis, Cincinnati, Ohio, and the water supply system of New York. Right. And they were also told the carrier acts of general terrorism to scare people in general, bombing Jewish owned department stores, locker rooms at train stations, just basically just foment like real fear and make Americans feel like, wow, America's being struck. Yeah, we're vulnerable. Right. And so the guy said, okay, let's do this. And the shipped out on two different subs from lorient France. U boats, baby. This is Germany. Yeah, okay. You boats. Yeah. They left on U 5 84 and U two O two. And they had each team had four boxes, three of dynamite and other explosives, and then a fourth box of things like timers and detonators and wiring and all that stuff. Sausages. Sure. Just in case they got a little hungry on the trip. Yeah, it was Germans, after all. They also had a lot of money. Roughly about a $1 million today. At the time, each group had 50 grand and they needed this to travel and to live and to bribe people and pay folks off. Right, in cash. So they had oh yeah. What's equal to about a $1 million today in cash on them in nothing greater than a $50 bill? That's a lot of money. Yeah. Like physically a lot of money. Each member was given 9005 of which was his very funny. Team leader is going to hold on to this. And you can keep for yourself and your money belt and only carry like 450 in your pocket. And that should be enough dough to carry out this plan was the idea. Yep. And then the team leaders also got handkerchiefs. That had the names and addresses and things of contacts. Friendlies. In invisible ink written on them. Yeah. So this is like a bona FIDE spy terrorism operation. Again, great movie in the making. So far. So again, I think you said before that Hitler was planning on sending several waves or wave after wave, apparently the schedule was every 6 weeks they were going to send one or two teams to the United States. Yeah, I mean, it was a really smart and scary plan. Because catching a tiny team of four guys who can assimilate as Americans, or at least good German Americans, that's chuck. Yes. You two O two. Which actually left two days after U 5 84 showed up, off like 50 yards off the shoreline of Long Island. And that's just frightening to think about. Yeah, there was a German U boat 50 yards off of the shore of Long Island. On June 12th, 1942, it showed up about 8 in the evening and it belches out its cargo of box of explosives and saboteurs and the dudes as they're rowing to shore. They are wearing like German military uniforms. Yeah, I didn't fully, this didn't make a ton of sense to me. Oh, well, if you were caught in playing clothes behind enemy lines, the rules of war state that you can be shot on site. But if you're caught as a German marine, your prisoner of war. And you have to be still say that was taking a chance. I would address as an American. No, I mean, like, I think that was smart. I would have addressed, I would have tried to assimilate, not being like, I'm a German marine. You're supposed to take me hostage. Right. But I think it would have been. Come on, let's go. I'm taking you hostage, whereas if the guy had been like, you're a spy. I am allowed to kill you right here and now. Yeah, I don't know, I don't agree with that one. But hey, everyone has their own rules when it comes to cyber touring. Okay. So sabotaging. Right. Yes, sabotaging. That was just kidding anyway. And I've learned recently that that was of that word is of recent Providence. Did you know that? It didn't come into use until the beginning of the 20th century. That makes sense. I would have thought it was a fairly old word. Yeah. Nope. Did we just think of sabotage or do we just start calling it that? Like did they not used to sabotage back in the day? Yeah, I think they just started calling it that. Okay. So this is Josh's team. Team, teammates. And they show up on the shore, and they're wearing, again, German military uniforms, which they took off really quickly. Very quickly. We got on shore. Yeah, once they saw that, you know, okay, we made it. Yeah. The operation has begun. They changed, right? Yeah, they changed clothes and they started, I guess they put on there. I love New York shirts, and they started digging big holes in the beach to bury these munitions. So they could come back as needed when they wanted to blow something new up. Yes, they can't just carry that stuff around. No, and they needed to just stash everything and go and cool out and make sure that no one was onto them or anything like that. And then come back and get it, like you said, is they need it. Yeah, the plan was to meet up for the two teams to meet up in Cincinnati on July 4th. Right. For a baseball game is what I'm imagining. Yeah. The reds versus the braves. I don't know where the braves were then, probably Milwaukee. Sure. Okay. I don't think they would do Atlanta until the 60s. Yeah, but I was trying to think of Boston, but they were long before. So team Einstein was changing. They just landed. They were in the midst of changing when they were discovered by a coast guardsman. Yeah, well, one of them was that dash climbed over a dune. And while the other guys were still bearing and changing their clothes and he walked up and there was a coast guard, dude, John Cohen, standing right there, and he was like, hey, what you doing? Basically. And the guy was like, oh, nothing? Yeah. And he apparently was kind of handling things when burger comes over. And burger thought that so the team eins had been road to shore by two German sailors. Yeah. And I guess burger lost track of the German sailors and assume that they were still there and that for some reason. It was only dos four guys plus the two. Right. And the dash had climbed over the dune to talk to one of the sailors. So burger comes up and asks the question in German and the coast guardsman, John Cullen is like, why are you speaking German? We're at war with Germany. What's going on? Yeah. And at that point, Josh tells burger to get out. Yeah, he said, you fool.

"Yeah, so he found some blue collar dudes. All but two of them had been Nazi Party members, which was a good start. Ford dropped off right off the bat and that left him with what would be 8 dudes which they divided up into two teams of four, one leader on each side and three dopes below them. With cap at the head of the whole thing. Yeah, even though he didn't come over to the United States for the operation. He was just sort of running the training initially. Yeah, and he was watching him do. I guess so. So here in the hilarious Germany is doing jiu-jitsu in the Woods. I don't think so. It just seems a little like, you know, neighborhood ninja camp kind of stuff, you know? Well, they had to train in some sort of hand to hand combat. No, they're saboteurs. They don't need to know that. They're supposed to know how to blow up a bridge. Yeah, but what if they get caught in the middle? They got to turn and run away. Jiu-jitsu somebody down. No, you just run if you're a saboteur. Well, that's some foreshadowing right there. So here are the players on team one. We'll call it team ice. How about that? Is that one? Sure. Okay. On team I and two had the leader George John dasch. And he was 39. He was the oldest guy. And he was so old. I know. 39. And he was picked because he was, he was a smooth talker, and he was apparently just seemed very American, which was you're going to stick some Germans over there to be saboteurs. It's probably good if they can pass themselves off as just regular good German Americans. Right, plus also you have the added benefit of not having to teach them to speak colloquial English. Sure. And they already know the terrain. They know the culture. Where is Coney Island? Right. I want the hot dog. Exactly. Yeah, so they were all good. Right. Yeah. Was that Count Dracula? No. That was my German. Saboteur. Hi, guys. So that's why they went with the guys who had already spent time in America. Plus they, it also showed a pretty significant loyalty to your homeland. The fatherland, in this case, where when war breaks out, you go back to where the war is being fought. To support it. Yeah. You know what I mean? Yeah. So selecting from the Oslo's institute roles of emigrants who were also boon members. It seemed like just a knock it out of the park, a group of guys. Yeah, so Josh, he was, he actually did, like you said, served in the German Army in World War I, came to America, worked as a waiter, and then in 1939 said, you know what? Duty calls and going back home. Right. The second guy on the first team, Ernest Peter Berger, he was supposedly a smart guy, and he had an interesting story because he was, he had long been a Nazi since they said, you know, as long as Hitler himself had been a Nazi. Yeah, he was part of the beer hall. Yeah, he was what you call a early adopter. He was of nazism. He really was. And he actually had fled Germany for the United States because he was afraid he was going to get brought up on brawling charges. That's right. He liked to fight. Yeah, and he stayed there for about 6 years and then worked as a machinist in the Midwest, he even joined the National Guard. The U.S. National Guard. And became an American citizen. Yep. And then he went back after Hitler gained power, right? Well, he went back mainly because of The Great Depression. Oh, is that right? Yeah, but I mean, it coincided, but he was like, yeah, this place stinks now. Yeah, and Hitler's in power. I'm going to go become a brown shirt and rough up people on the street, which is what he did. Pretty much. 'cause he really did love to fight. And the brown shirts were purged in the night of the long knives by Hitler and his cronies. And burger was, it was burger, right? Yeah, he managed to not be killed during that purge. Yeah. So he was working with his buddy, Ernest room of the stormtroopers, like serious business. Right, in Rome was actually killed during the purge. Oh, he was. Oh yeah, they put apparently they put a pistol in his cell with them and gave him ten minutes to kill himself. Yeah. And he said if you want me dead, Adolf is going to have to do it himself. And they came back and with Hitler. And Hitler is like, what is going on here? And the guy was standing there with his shirt off with his chest Baird to him. Yeah. Supposedly and they just shot him in the chest point blank. And the head of the brown shirt went down. So that didn't work out for him. No, but burger did survive this. Yeah, he did survive and went off to college, but then he wrote a paper about the Gestapo that was not too favorable, and he got sent to a concentration camp. For his efforts for 17 months. Right, and then when he was released, they said, you can come out, but you have to go off with the army. Yeah, they harassed his wife. I don't know that he was the best pick. Right. Now that I think about it, we've antagonized thrown in prison and then forced into the army. Sure. We also killed his boss. Yeah. Harassed his wife. We'll trust him as a savage. As a team of one of 8. So burger is the right hand man to dash his team on team teammates. Einstein. Okay, cool. And then there were other, there were two other dudes, Heinrich heink, right? That's a great name. And Richard queering. Yes. And they were a couple of machinists who were a couple of machinists. They've been in America for a while. Came back and were selected for this team. Yeah, basically they went back to Germany, started working at Volkswagen, and you know, I guess we're probably eager to leap on a top secret job like this. Sure. It's probably appealing to these guys. Right. You know? So that was team ice. We'll talk about team, that's fine. Right

"People will be talking about in. This episode. played no active role in the third reich. They just had the misfortune of being born to horrible parents. They were children during the event of the second world war. And we're really responsible for anything that being said how. These children responded to. their parents was extremely varied. Most of them did as much as they could to distance themselves from their parents but a few actively embraced their parents ideology. Let's start with the top guy himself. Adolf hitler as far as we know. Hitler never had any children however there was a rumor that he had an illegitimate son in france in nineteen eighteen jean-marie laurey was born in san quentin france. You never knew his father and his mother only told him that his father was german soldier in nineteen forty eight just before his mother's death. She told him that the german soldier in question was named hitler. The story was kept a secret but it was eventually leaked to the press in the early. Nineteen seventies hines. Linke was hitler's valet during the war in his memoirs. He noted quote hitler's belief that he had a son born in nineteen eighteen. As the result of relationship he had with the french girl as a soldier in world war one in northern france and belgium unquote. There is no hard evidence to prove this claim and no genetic testing has ever been done. Laura had nine children so they're still might be potential to do genetic testing in the future. If paternity could be proven that hillary's descendants whatever claim on the income made from the book mein comp. Hitler did have relatives. However healers father was always hitler and he had a son named alex junior. Who's hitler's half brother. He migrated to britain. Had a son named william patrick. Hiller who also fought in world war two against the germans. It was a great. pr coup. William patrick moved to the united states and had four sons. The family changed their name. From hitler to stewart. Houston for obvious reasons. The remaining sons have never married or had children and they have made a pact amongst themselves to never have children because of their bloodline with adolf hitler. Hiller was a legitimate german surname and there are still people today walking around with the family. Name hitler there is a documentary. Released several years ago called. Meet the hitler's that tells the story of people with the last name of hitler. Although they are not necessarily of any relation they just got stuck with a crappy last name. There are literally emily hitler's and doug hitler's and bob hitler's out there. In the world other nazi leaders did have children. Martin bormann was the nazi party. Chancellor any private secretary to adolf hitler he had a son named martin adolf bormann junior and adolf hitler was his grandfather. He was the oldest of ten children and he was fifteen. When the war ended his mother took the family to surrender to the americans and she died of cancer. Soon after martin junior sought sanctuary in a monastery and there. He converted to catholicism. He became a priest in nineteen fifty eight and then left the priesthood in nineteen sixty nine to get married to none. He became a doctor of theology and travelled around germany and austria speaking about the horrors of the third reich. He also went to israel to meet with holocaust survivors. He never however personally condemned his father saying it was up to god to judge. Joseph mangla was known as the angel of death and ran horrific experiments on prisoners auschwitz. He had a son named ralph who was born.

"No anyway so then. Yeah by forty three. He's an elderly italy and leading The two commando leading. Yeah he's no longer and he's not number two number three number one number two figure out and lead them from their landing site in at catania in sicily with his trademark klay martinez longbow arrows around his neck and his bagpipes underarm which he also did Landing at salerno that is in italy. Not the selena's pizza around chicago. That leeson i love so much. And i was wondering i was wondering which one you meant right if he had landed at at salerno italy during world war two or if it had been a fast food pizza place in chicago land. It's a sit down restaurant. thank you very much. Don't call fast food. you know. okay. I'll give you. Qsr quick service restaurant is the best they have. They have a large gathering areas in. What are the the. Why am i blanking on that word with the i've just go to go out and links anyway. Once in salerno brent. He was ordered to capture german observation. Post and you know what he did he. He collected his entire garrison owing no no he didn't. He took one dude with him literally. Two dudes total against an outpost. My dick if it gets too heavy you're coming with me boy slinging one over each shoulder and you know he thought no problems we infiltrates. The town captures the post and takes forty two nazi prisoners We're having crowd tonight. Boys in here's the best part of this story. A allegedly supposedly according to laura according to legend according to every the piece of research. We could find. He did this all with his clay more as his primary weapon. Eight took forty two nazis with a soul of course military stories do get tend to become tall tales. But at least some of this has to be true which is really cool. The way these things read. It's like he definitely did. This definitely went and captured. An outpost undermanned The question becomes. Did he actually just walk up with a stored and say get down on the ground or did they have a machine gun or pistol with them or two and then took four people. And then you know i. Well the best part. Though i mean for regardless of the prisoners are ready to move. The german prisoners pushed the carts carrying the wounded british soldiers that they had already captured bear for themselves. Bring them back to him like we say bad ass and because he did this like the distinguished service order for leading his actions at salerno now practice. I mean. I love that like like now. We're not gonna torture the soldiers but they are going to literally carry are wounded. Because they wound up later in the war he's finding yougoslavia and he's captured and the story goes with this when you play the bagpipes. He's one and they say he was playing william. No come back again anyway. I it said a grenade landed next to blast or close to him. You knocked him out. He comes to us. We captured by the nazis and he's sent to Chacin housing concentration cap. And i believe that's how you say it. I'm not i. Hopefully i am saying there is no problem though. What do you do if you're capture by nazis and your name is mad jack escape not once because the capture. Can you do it twice..

"I guess He's he. He was known for bringing a scottish claymore to battle in world war two. It's part of the reason. We like him in. Scottish claymores like a two handed broad long or heavy unruly. It begs the question that i thought we needed to get to. If you were going to go to battle in the middle ages in the middle ages not world war two like this bad ass. What would have been your armament of choice. Oh like so not like my gun but something crazy well like middle ages so i mean a of gunpowder existed but guns weren't prevalent in warfare. it was swords and lances spears. Axes maces crossbows. Long bows daggers. Yeah no or or the long game attributed or something like that. Oh okay so the one that. I always think it looks cool. Opole arm and a sword. He put together get a grave. I think was kind of an awesome weapon. 'cause some of them almost have like a sword link of blade on the end of opole as a glade you can fight from both sides. I think that would have been at least until i died. I would've tried to wield one of those. I dig dig the idea. I also think like wow. How much training red need us this as well. Same thing with a broad sort of you know a clay more you know you. You're trying to lift it up especially where we're tune the shot you three times. Maybe i'm over thinking it. But i was thinking of is like Like not only what. I need to know how to defend myself with the regular sword. Part stab at the regular sword part but it also need to learn the other tricks to go the curve part and use them have to have occur. It's just like a bo staff with blades on the end of it that way. Oh so so essentially the. You're talking about darth maul lightsaber with blades. Yeah except for way. Less deadly go the other direction i go i and a longbow and stuff like that or you know are fun crossbows just unless you're standing up on a hill somewhere shooting. Those are hard to to reload back then even now so you know but yeah yeah i so okay. So i've got to. I've got one. I've got one kind of trustee companion and the but these can be used in tandem as well. These could be used in the one that always gets overlooked. Amir cal drops.

"Been things in the sky that were of alien or egyptian back then even if it wasn't this far it for me to say never about because that's a wide sweeping crowd question even if it wasn't this was there anything in this guy i i i don't know maybe yeah definitely say whether they were not certainly some interesting. I think. I think we should eventually do the topic. The firefighter reports certainly interesting. Couple of things going back to one of the questions. You posed in there you know with you mentioned reports from government agencies. And just that phrase. I think is something we could pause on. Government agencies can control the narrative they can that's inherent in the idea of disclosure. They have the information and they're choosing when to disclose it. We hope they have the version. At least i hope they do another reason that we know so much about all of the shit that fucks to hitler was up to is because their government fell. Apart their government died their government was torn asunder at post world war. Two we grab half of it and The russians grab the other half so every document was analyzed what the us didn't want to keep themselves in the russians. In the key from themselves they made public. Every nazi was interrogated like that. That level of scrutiny has never happened to the american government right like so it. My point is like if the american government fell apart tomorrow and every person that worked in the american government was interrogated and it was all made public. We would learn a lot more shit that they were experimenting with in the background. Oh of course and probably that the nazi shit didn't stop when the nuncio but yeah exactly But i think that goes to help. Explain why we Why we associate the nazis with so many things because we know what they were working on. We don't necessarily know what other governments are working on. And then to your question about could it have been out there. Sure i just. Don't think that the stories that we hear around the nazis and all of this fantastic bullshit whether it be the spear of destiny whether be the nazi bell whether it be the black forest ufo craft. I think all of it is horsh it. I think that people have glommed onto these. These these greater ideas of just hitler being into forty and topics and they're like. Oh hey i'll play my mad libs game here and that's what. I was kind of alluding to earlier when i talked about the nineties That a lot of the people were just write books and go. Yeah i think this happened..

That quoted us uncalled historians. You know and the the nazi bell we were talking about whatever the historian version of scientists and then then we got into Pepperidge farm to hitler allegedly faking his own death and we spend a lot of time in the car.

I'm angry and i'm sad. I d like that. Why you so. There is development of a god like superman race of the ancient fucking atlanta's the through which believed that supposedly impera psychology in mystical electricity. Like thors hammer literally created white people. That's what they say is like a lecture type of godly. forced like thors hammer created. Why people that's what they're theories was and it landed was destroyed by icy moons crashing into earth. Refugees of superman established buddhism. So this is what is weird. That nazis are super boot. Is shit like weirdly. It is weird to me. Obsessed with to bet and buddhism. And i think that's why hitler believed in hall the worth in why this one hundred percent true for talk about this before. They had boring machines and they were drilling into south and artika. That is a fucking fact that they were doing that. For what reason most people don't know they're going to hang out with tilles man. They want to smoke a bong here with the rep chilean's bergen. No they weren't too fucking in. We'd we have fifty year old man going to sit there. Yeah but and hinduism in tibet in the and and japan to and. That's why. I've always funny. That in the first world war. Japan was on our side. The japan was on our side and then the second world war the second war. They're all like yeah. Hitler is seems like a good guy. You beat the germans in the first will work strange. Yes it's strange. So jesus christ was a white area of atlantis descent. Atlantic jesus god damn christ wasn't inland eighteen. And that's why they believe like. Oh jesus christ. I gotta fucking put like. He's he's the all mighty. Jesus christ was not a fucking lancien. As we're the knights templar. What the fun did you just say. They believed that christ was in atlanta and and that he was part of all the shit and that which is crazy why even though he was born in jerusalem carnival the bible. He doesn't. He's not a typical. I'm not convinced. He's a real person. Eastern that is lighter only because there are so many tales skin can. We've talked about the so much da this texture with everything the only fucking literal fact if you wanna call anything fact that if anything is that he existed yes when he may no hundred percent it there are jomie as blood there are way too many handsets drink about him specifically yes true. I've just think this way too. Many people say yes he existed but this is what he did he was just look now. Turn turnaround real so the believed it was more or less that the ancient they believe the holy grail for the holy grail was the aryan blood. That's what a lot of belief is goes on very different cheeses blood. Yes which is k- religion in general especially catholicism. Hugh fucking eat the flesh body of christ.

"Of your divinity so despite several allegations speculation to the contrary yes there's no evidence that we don't know but ninety one john simon's he wrote a book but fuck donald shkreli essentially the medusa heads or conversations between our crowley in adolf hitler which he definitively has shown an literature fiction so we don't know if it's true that the addition of the book was limited to was limited to three hundred fifty so he only he only sold three hundred and fifty fucking books so it is weird that it mentioned in this book the contact. Suppose between crowley and hitler without any sources of evidence but we like to dive into the mystique is also made in a letter by rene union to jews vm. I can't fucking literally wish we just go this whole podcast mentioning names so dated october. Twenty ninth nine hundred forty which reached a broader audience. So they're saying there is speculations. That hitler could have been in contact alister crowley but nobody actually fucking knows. It's just a pretty much like we're live at the member. So when we talk about crowley he was supposedly born member of those hairs around his chest that shaped swastika airs on his heart and he was like around his heart that a swastika remember that i think he might have shaved them like he was a child when he was born so he was born hairless. He had supposedly hairs on his chest. They're shaping us west iga fucking weird. He should it be a buddhist instead of a not see that he was in the buddhism to alex. Kroll you loved anything supernatural and a call to him. He believed in all these different shows. Learn about some fucked up. guy that actually influence spirituality. Two hippies were in the sixties was taken from. What else did a lot of fucking and stuff like that. I say that point for point there. So when. Hitler came to power. He had. Nazis use dowsing rod to look for cancer is death rates so funny gay newer does. Is you know those guys penis housing. It's literally it's a piece of metal. That's a triangle and then it goes into a longer stick and you hold these two sticks of the end. I suppose we can bring you to water shape or some shit that and you can bring you the paranormal type of device like tarot cards and all that stuff and ouija boards where you thanked making those and selling them as found money of this fucking shit in the late nineteenth century. It was so easy. Like you take this and you rub it on your skin annual hill you of everything and then like a year later. It's like fucking ripping on you for your house scuff disease. It's just it's just something fucking ross. Picked up on. The side of the pioneers used to ride those things for maya before flooding to scotland. Rudolf hess had his horoscope drawn up by personal astrologer. And to get into this. Nazis loved astrology. Like i do not see but they love the strategy. They were so into that. One astrologist actually supposedly predicted on assassination attempt on hitler and then they didn't really believe it there was no and then it happened and he got away from the by the skin of his teeth. I think it was a theater. They planted a bomb or whatever and this astrologer predicted so there has always run up the astrologers we need them most caught off guard. Happening at theater believed them motherfuckers. Alone there joining the show. That's how you them after the theater when they're talking fucking watch him. They're back research. On the actually the holy grail and the medieval devil worship for worship which is lutheranism and stuff like that which goes way deeper. But we're supposed to be sent an ex s s expedition by explorer dr ernest shafter to bet in nineteen thirty eight shafter to in to investigate ancient indo german aaron origins of buddhism. So you're kind of reason. Germans are interested by buddhism. Yes it literally. Yes yes exactly. It was actually a sign of peace and hope and shit. And then we're gonna we're gonna turn turn fucking tilted fucking kill every it's a saab lead you see you spin it around everything you don't like him were also founded. It's better than these says. Which is division. We were the witches division ss with which is division which are collected at rainbows. Sex ryan team is literally. So i wanted like craze. They would like going to get to later. But if i do whatever but the fact that they would they would actually round up on people that were astrologist and mystics. At the time they would bring them in and this is crazy they would have like say in concentration camps they would find people that are specifically mystics or philosophers or just even like people who believed in just talking about zodiac symbols psychopath a on in zodiac symbols and astrologers they would actually take jr even jewish people out of the concentration camp feed them well and them to try to predict what was going to happen and they would give them a special armbands kate. You're a good. Don't burn this one. I gotta get some use out of so. Hitler also found which which is division which was collected evidence and eastern europe in the second world war with supposedly quotations wise women. They plot against the german culture supposedly the blood of the area and race and all their chips. So in nineteen thirty nine. Goebbels goebbels goebbels is of we'll talk about turkey's gogol saw because he was a famous assess officer horrendous that will probably get into other episode.

That's i face fuck. Let's say that we do. We need to stay on topic. Was like i was listening to you guys. I forgot we guys. We've even talking about. But he's not so far fucking. Stay so strange bruise. Yeah we're drinking man season before hitler himmler was particularly attracted to willie god's brand of paganism as he disliked the druick originate origins of christianity and after world war. Two hitler believed that the old german god's will be restored like before when before his any of the ones we win. Oh fucking ancient greece. They wanted ancient german guards. Were almost like roman gods same kind of shit where a guy the same gods for like did they a mountain. It's just a bunch of different gods. Just like how romans and fucking greeks have all these like hercules. And what. i'm saying we're one of those as well does some roman gods or did they just make their own. I don't know that far back. But i know that they had never heard of german. God god's it's it's weird. I'm sure that one it was going to say. Yeah i. I've said this before. But i remember saying when i was in cuba and i was drinking and talking to a german guy was from germany. I said i'm sorry that hitler ruined everyone's idea of your country and he's like i. I was so drunk. I remember i remember talking about. Yeah it sucks man. He's like one guy comes in and everyone thinks germans are evil. He's just like staring at me. Yeah say the same thing for the middle east and americans think of them. Yeah it's true so do per fine people a lot of them. No they're all fucking way more than have. I didn't mean to actually say yeah we have listeners. Ask not everyone is everyone. Everybody loves everybody right. All right everybody except for doyle rules. I should fuck up. So leveraging his influence and his his boss desire to see german paganism willie got attempted to stamp out the competing. Philosophies there are some wackier theories out there that were about their about the rule of the call to played in nazism. Most of which were there's little evidence to support them but we're gonna get into them. Perhaps the most extreme in a way comforting example. It's comforting would be the idea that hitler was possessed by a demon. So it's like comforting. That human couldn't actually think are capable. Yeah fucking so. This is a little bit worse. A theory yeah. He took kill six billion. That was actually lie. Actually kill six million kids six. You do it with his own hand. Six million. that was appropriate last week. It was like this pope. Six hundred thousand people. I was like what did he killed them or to the fucking people. He said he was just in charge. Yeah that doesn't mean he saw in that logic. Then obama is evil piece of shit because he just was like kay we're gonna there's certain parts of the middle east just like feis jearl yet. Norfolk started dropping hospitals and shit. Yeah can't do that jerry. Jeudy you don't fucking kill the hospital. People man oil yaffe the wrong person. Call a duty like fucking kidding me in these new back at start the lake. You are fucking guard. Go learn your morals. So this theory of hiller being possessed was mainly off of a passage. Hitler underlining a copy of a book titled magic history theories and practices reading here who does not carry demonic seeds within him will never give birth to a new world so they think that he was possessed by some sort of demon. How many people are giving birth to new worlds millions of worlds. There could be a simple. Did they all live on her now. All the people giving birth to new worlds now. Maybe you don't know trying to. But maybe stopping them. There has also been rumors of an occult society based on the real. Which is this is some super d- day could be in who episodes own a magical substance describing the book the coming race. That's the iron scraping coming rates. Nice this tonight. This nineteenth century work of fiction describes a traveler. Exporting cave who becomes lost in discovers a subterranean civilization people supernatural beings called the real young which is actually what. Madam vasco talks about two. So it's just like oh. This book is based on fiction. But it sounds true. So so it's like harry potter harry. Potter's a fucking real thing. Billy we discussed. We talked to in the novel. These beings made up fluid called real which they could telepathically manipulate to. He'll destroy change their surroundings. All of the existence of an occult society focused on a supposed real version of the real are unverified. It's not difficult to imagine that the such a society coulda found. I think in whole hole in the colt obsession of nazis in this society that they were doing like. Oh there's a liquid that can destroy your. He'll usually it's like why it like three hundred thousand dollars to get verified probably further speculations about some some content contend that hitler and the society. We're together secretly found a secret toll. Ian government is where we're going found.

Obsessed with you. Cope has been popular one amongst the public. There are surely some bizarre theories out there about nazis. Such as hitler being possessed by demand or that the nazi conquest of europe was powered by a magical spear of destiny. There's many different ties between the call. Society's racist thinking in nazi during the nineteenth and twentieth century when other crazy theories. oh we'll get into. It just weighed. Did you know that. Hitler had micro and one tesco sure. Why didn't everybody know that. I guarantee i almost want to say this. Not fucking true. Just just because the ball is true. Just because every single fucking person knows it makes me making life killed herself pena. She had those good vibrators quotations. she killed herself with him in the bunker.

Called sky to facts coming race isn't a movie you know i live my life like die hard by fucking spiderman so if my talk green for the right one. We haven't heard of alex before you can go back and listen. The black plague episode that mubarak plague. Alex is on that show. You play people give you booboo like black plague. Let's get a black guy on the phone. My act as it turns out the nazi party inc cultism from the very start the political group that would eventually become the nazi party. The german workers party or adapt was founded entire by individuals from the thule society and esoteric group of data dedicated to the study of mythological origins of the adian race which alien race air off. I'm very confused to begin with several. Prominent nazis were either members or active in this society including rudolf. Hess who would become the deputy farrar to hitler albert rosenberg the head. Mr that oversaw nazi germany occupied territories. And weser are eastern europe and dietrich egg heart. Who founded depp. Who founded the german working party like in a way to get into a little bit like those on that list. Put dill gildo gouda. We're getting there jumping ship on people. Don't know too much about hitler. He fought in world war widened. He wished one of the front-line messenger. Peace prize get nobelpeaceprize. Did so it'll break. Obama and brooke bond was a terrible person jerome striking everyone keepers. Probably more in rural. No he got. I don't know if you're thinking right. Because i feel like someone's going to shout at me a fucking. It's not right but he did get like the iron cross twice and sounds could fees it. We could be right. Yeah the call i. What was it the fast austrian or something like that. He likes us. Don't worry is a jew and all right so the throw society primarily focused on the study of oil if he got a nobel peace prize not makes us way more funny because he's definitely one he got it and he's like you know what even better fuck all these people did he get. It is a guy who was nominated but it was canceled awarded in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine to anyone piece because there was no be august on that note. There we go. So he's got a word. He was doing his little fucking bow tie in the mirror and then he's like the canceled it. I just think it was a whole nother. One craze that war one was the war to end all wars and then literally within ten years. Another fucking more aphids pissed off the wrong yeah and he got fucking into power because everyone was funding him for all different size. The catholic church was fucking funding. Hitler and being like we like your ideas. Man gotta get rid of those those choose. The catholics didn't jewish people whatsoever. Lunar eva pope episode. Did we remember. So so the era of safi referring to the wisdom regarding the arians founded by colt is gay though von list and lonzo bond leak in leeann bells lincoln these individuals talking family room in this one back in the day of your butthole was liike like that. Meant like you know these. These individual beliefs would come to Inform significant aspects of the nazi state such as von list belief in the power of magical ruins which are ruined stones.
