Guest Host Kevin McCullough on the New Way the Left Operates
"Had kind of this rolling conversation about this general idea of the new way that the left is operating. When I was a kid, 150 years ago, crawling around, I remember that my family, my father, grandfather on my mother's side, grandfather and grandmother on my dad's side too, all were registered Democrats. Grew up in North Texas, and Democrats at one point in my childhood had not taken a stand on the abortion issue yet. Roe v. Wade hadn't been decided yet. But as it did, and as the kind of fissure started in the country, I noticed that in my family it started happening. And it took my grandparents the longest to convert from being a Democrat to a Republican. I remember when I was, I don't know, nine or ten, my parents took me to volunteer at a local candidate's office. I helped stuff envelopes and stuff like that for someone who was running for our, I think our House Assembly seat. His last name was Bradshaw. I don't remember the first name, but I remember that. And I just remember that campaigns were always something that was a little bit of an excitement around our house. My dad would perk up a little bit when it was election cycle, and he would talk more about what was going on. And as we delved into the issues of our time then, I remember a voice coming on the radio by the name of Rush Limbaugh. And he had said at that time, for the longest amount of time, that Democrats could never tell you openly what they would actually hope to get passed and actually vote for. Because if they did, they'd never get elected anywhere. Think about it. I want to raise your taxes. Oh, okay, sure, I'll vote for you. I want to make our national defense weaker. Oh, okay, great. Why don't you open the border and let everybody in at the same time? I mean, this is the kind of stuff that if they went out and actually spoke about it honestly on the campaign trail, Americans would reject
A highlight from The Mike and Mark Davis Daily Chat - 07/31/23
"Well, we missed each other for a couple of days. I feel like I haven't talked to you in a month. I know, it's been a while. I mean, you had your dental surgery. And by the way, memo to self, because I got some coming up too. Do it on Friday afternoon. Yeah, no. You can't do it on a weekday and then think you're going to be able to bounce back the next morning. That was, silly me, that's what I thought, a Mr. Work ethic. I got my quote given back to me on the Patriot mobile text line. Didn't you say to Mike, I don't need no stinking day off? I think I did. And as it turned out, it was, yeah, so. You feel better though? Absolutely tremendous. I remain fascinated. I'm fascinated by anesthesia. I'm absolutely fascinated by it. They said they put the IV in me. Said, time to go night night. Fantastic. Boom, woke up. What was that? It's the craziest, craziest thing in the world. But all good, down one tooth implant to come. All is well. How was your Friday, South Carolina visit to celebrate the life of your former junior? That's right. I got to catch up with, of course, Peg and Joey and celebrated the life of the guy who gave me really essentially my first radio gig in 1989. So you think about that. I mean, we go back quite a ways. Well, first, big time. You were doing talk shows when you were 12, weren't you? Well, 1978 in Ohio, but then really I got started in South Carolina in 89 and Jim Burnside was the guy that hired me and he passed away. Really, really brief battle with cancer. He didn't realize he had cancer until like mid -June. He had some pain in his chest area, went off to the doctor and they said, whoops, we found spots. Which, of course, is why the message you have every day about those body scans. Early detection. So important. Early detection. I'm about to embark in the same kind of campaign that you've got in North Texas with an early detection body scan company here in the Tampa Bay area. Anyway, it was about a month. And you know, there's a blessing to that. He was 80 years old and it turned out he had a lot of cancer and he had pretty considerable pain, sadly, in the last few days. There is a blessing, I think, when you're at a point where you have a lot of cancer in your body, that can go for months and months and months. And I've seen people who have, thankfully, thank God, the people in my life, Denise didn't have a lot of pain. She didn't wither away or anything. But a lot of people lose tons of weight. They're in agonizing pain. It goes on for many, many months. And Jim didn't want that. He told his family and his friends, listen, I don't want to linger for a long, long time. So he's 80, gets the diagnosis. Did they offer him a long regimen of chemo? I know that he said, look, I'm 80. I'm not going to do that. No, they did. He was ready. They started with chemo. They said, listen, we've got new kinds of chemo, radiation. But then it was really too late. And within about two weeks, they were putting him into hospice. And so it was quick. It was about a month, month and a half from the diagnosis. And you know, look at Denise, it was a year, you know. And so sometimes it happens faster than others. And there are also amazing treatments. And for people who are in the battle, don't lose hope. Keep the faith. There's lots of innovative treatments they're using.

Thanks, Ian oh boy, an awful lot of accident scenes already this early morning, please drive carefully folks. I can't say it enough. Northbound side of three 95, trying to get into D.C. from Virginia. Halfway across the 14th street bridge you will notice an awful lot of flashing lights. We're going to want you to slow down, be very alert, pay attention to how many vehicles there are around you. There's an accident scene blocking the left hand side of the 14th street bridge as you make your approach there towards the case bridge looks like just based off of this perspective. It looks like the ramp that normally will take you over towards 12 street is more than likely blocked off. You're going to want to follow the detour there, just continue on to three 95, unfortunately you're going to have to find the next exit to get where you need to go. Here's the deal. As you continue on three 95, stay towards the center of the roadway because soon as you make your way into the D.C. across the case bridge on your approach towards route 7 there, got the right hand side of the roadway blocked. I'm counting at least 5 emergency vehicles there. Blocking at least one lane on the right actually looks like two lanes on the right hand side, so see that the far left to get by. Interlude with the beltway northbound four 95 as you make your way up towards two 70, the ramp to the two 70 spur is still partially blocked over on the right hand side of the roadway. They moved the camera, but they were in the process of putting a vehicle up onto a tow truck. It's very likely that they were able to pick it up, but I'm still seeing at least one flare there. So do proceed with caution and see towards the left. That's where lane was getting by. I would live at the beltway, the ramp to northbound 95 has the single right lane getting past the crash cleanup northbound BW Parkway also right side blocked with the accident seen near Maryland 100, according to Maryland Department of Transportation, the ramp to 100 is also partially blocked.

You're the executive director of patriot mobile action. Tell us about the great work you're doing on the ground. So Peter mobile action was formed by four executives actually who are at patriot mobile. We did this last year and it was our first launch year in 2022. And we took on four independent school districts in tarrant county, Texas. As you know, Taylor county is the largest red county left in the nation and in the bullseye of the turn Texas blue. So we took on four school districts. It was 11 seats. We won all 11. They weren't slam ducks. One of them went into a runoff. We had to work very hard, but ultimately what that means is over a 100,000 north Texas students who before May 2022 had liberal leadership on their school boards. After May 2022, had conservative majorities on their school boards.

Halle was brutally massacred along with three of her classmates at a Christian school in Nashville. This is a spiritual battle. The greatest weapon we have in a spiritual battle is prayer. Take a heartfelt moment today to pray for this morning scruggs family and for an end to demonic evil in our country. My heart breaks for this family and for our broken nation.

"My guest. Today is mr pat. Boone pat boone. My friend welcome to this program. Lets me it's radio so feel free to talk and listen pat. I gotta tell you. I got to tell my audience just to set them up for what we're gonna discuss. I had the privilege we were in dallas together at the are a couple of weeks ago. my daughter and i had the joy of spending some time with you At that dinner there was a special dinner and Then album and i might producer. Were in the room The next day. I think it was two days later when you got a very special award and that got me thinking about you and your career and i said i want to have you on this program to talk about your career. Talk about anything you want. But that evening was so special pat. I was sitting there watching. They had put together a beautiful video. Package introducing you and your career before they brought you up on the stage and to be reminded of all the things that god has used you to do over the years. It was overwhelming. I said i want my audience especially younger folks. Who don't know you to know about this stuff. And then when you gave your speech i thought this is getting more ridiculous because it was one of the most moving beautiful speeches pat. It was amazing what you said. So we're going to put that on my youtube channel my personal youtube channel so people can watch it but let's just start there pat. How do you. i mean that that was. That was an amazing evening. What was your response. Or what were you feeling that evening to get this lifetime. Legend award well. It's ila mixture of feelings. Erica of course Happy that i was given being given an award and singled out amongst a lot of other people who i feel sure more worthy but very emotional because as you heard me say and i won't say at all is my life was getting underway in my late teens. I was asking god. This was personal just between me and him to use my life and some way that that would please him that would serve his purpose. We're up in the attic. You were sixteen years old or something like that. Yeah yeah about sixteen. I had claimed this raw unfinished attic. Full of kinda junk. That's everybody's excuse at my penthouse. Because my brother he was younger than me. We'd been sharing this double bid and our modest home in nashville for years and of course we were. We loved each other. We were brothers but each of us would like to head the bed and the privacy to himself when you hit sixteen. You're a man you want your own room so you head up to the attic. I understand so. I asked mom and dad if i could have the attic. And it's well. It's just an attic and i said yeah but there's room and i can put caught up there and it'll be my place and nick can have the double bed here downstairs and in the bedroom. So that's what we did. And i will say that being up there alone lot of the time i could study up there had light. It was raw. It was nobody people would have felt. Sorry for me. I guess but i enjoyed it because it was mine and i was. I had the privacy. So i used some of that time as a young christian to talk to god and just say i. I don't know where this road. I'll look out the window up this curving road out the window of the advocate. It went up the hill and around and around the bend and it was like a an assembly assembly or a parable to me about my life. My life is going around a bend. I don't know where i'm going. But god please use me in some way that will serve you and will bless all the people. It was a simple prayer. And i didn't know what i was asking but but i met it and i repeated it and and then i'd come down and have breakfast and go to school and I just never forgot that. I had pledged to myself. That what i didn't know what i didn't tell you i didn't mention that night because i'm the oldest of four kids and i've been blessed than many ways beyond my brother and two sisters. I love him and they love me. And we're very close. But i was singled out and i asked my mama since i was the first born. Did you ever do when. I read about little samuel. And and and his mom who he couldn't even have a child and god miraculously gave her the child then she raised him to heaven and and gave him to god. I said. Did you ever do anything like that with me. And she teared up. She'd never told me she said yes. On when you were just an infant Do before the lord and said he's yours lord using for your purposes. She never told me that until i asked her. As a you know in my fifties. I never knew she had taken her. First born son and like hannah and samuel just raised me up and said take him lord. He's yours so with all of my failings and faults and mistakes all through the years and i made plenty of people who know me know about him. God is blessed in us and directed my life and i've had that sense that That he had a purpose for me. Well it's it's just overwhelming and again you know for for people especially younger people tuning in who don't know when i mentioned to my cousin in greece Who i guess he's just seventy this year that That i had become friendly with you. He couldn't believe it. He thought pat boone. What he's in greece. But i mean the whole world of certain generations knows you knows that you were a recording star hitting every every bell that could be wrong top number one hits everything movies everything and of course younger people. Today they would. They would have no idea about that. So i said i wanna go over your career because you talked about this about giving your life to god having no idea. Let's be honest what what lies ahead. And what lay ahead for you. You met the queen of england twice. You met everybody. We can possibly think of Elvis you're friendly with all these people. Every bob hope whoever it is it is a staggering career. That you've had. And i just wanna go backwards and let me just ask you said you know the queen of england so you met the queen of england twice it's hedge. It's an embarrassment. It was because i met her twice. The second time was when i was deeply deeply embarrassed. the first time i was in college at at columbia university had transferred from north texas state to columbia was having hit records and my career was taking off an astonishing way so in college.

Well, you know, you left out the Von Air should probably the most famous resident family out of Texas. And even over the entire, you know, Genre. Professional Russian monarchs were superstars. I'll never forget when I was a junior and senior at North Texas State, 1 30 miles from Dallas, Texas, so I would ride down to the sport of time on Friday nights. The live show on Saturday mornings on the TV tapings and me and my buddies were sit out there and drink Baird yell at the restless and throw stuff out of it. God. A man with a Texas put out.

No doubt about it Straight up. Steve Austin Season number two is back on U S. A. And it's a really cool serious because you talk to celebrities, athletes, etcetera, but you don't do it in a normal standard. Sit down scenario, like on a couch. You actually go out to do activities with them. And so you're in the You're in the feel of doing things and then you're kind of exploring their life and career. Do you like that? That kind of project better than the traditional sit down on the couch and do a one on one. Yeah. You know what I do kind of a traditional one on one with my broken skull sessions that are doing the deputy head of the network, And I love that. And I love that format. But because I love being outdoors so much I love hunting and writing my side by sides and stuff like that. I love driving vehicles. I love to be behind the wheel of something, whether it's whether it's on land or in the water, So this show was right up my alley and you get a chance to do some kind of driving thing where you're talking to him and in some type of activity, what you're usually turn into a challenge. When you get something, you know there's a lot of things going on. You're trying to facilitate a conversation, Get their story and doing activity, man. Your your mind just going, But you know you're just relying on instincts and you're flying by the seat of your pants. That's what I like. I don't like to remember anything. And that's what I love about this show. I ain't gotta remember anything. I just have to put it out there and respond accordingly. Yeah, you're reacting right? You're getting information and you're reacting to it and Maybe it's a bit of an obtuse connection, but it's kind of like playing. Football is kind of like playing sports. You're just reacting to whatever you have, and you're gonna be on your toes. That's gotta be exhilarating at times, right? Well, it is. I was talking about 30 yesterday and we were. He was asking me about it. I said, you know what Booker's just kind of like, because you remember Booker T from Texas as well, you know. Uh, I said, it's just like having a match. You're going out there. You're doing something to elicit a response from our crowd. In this case of response from the person I've been I'm interviewing and As they say, kind of it in London and the comedy world or the the World of Ad Lib. Yes, and so hopefully always I'm there with something to say, too. You know, When I give me an answer, I could respond accordingly at all times together and make sense. So there's a lot of things that go into it, and they surrounded with an outstanding team and the show takes takes all day to film. And it's the pastor's half hour show on TV, and I have an absolute blast making it and you could tell me thinking it because I'm laughing my ass off. That's awesome. Coming up straight up.

If you're fan of like the Karate kid movies from the eighties, which I saw many, many times there is this Cobra Kai Syriza's started on YouTube red a few years back.

They show him on the actual screen every day, and it was number one for like a week, and it was the top 10 for over a month. So a lot of people looking forward to this, you know such a big hit. In fact, it was renewed for 1/4 season in October before season three even premiered. That's almost that's always my barometer when a new stream show like the flight attendant a few weeks ago, and if the first season finishes and it's already been renewed for the next season, I'll watch it because that means okay, The critics have seen it in the executive scene, and they love it so It's got to be pretty good. Right. And you know the one thing when season two ended was a lot of talk about Elizabeth. She possibly reprising her role of valley within. I haven't seen anything about her being in it.
