Education is collapsing in America as it collapses in Washington state. It is collapsing. And people in Washington state will remember that I was 11 years old when patty Murray was first selected. She ran as the mom in tennis shoes. Oh yes. She was a preschool teacher and she was on school board and she was going to fight for our children. So under her policies, our education has gotten worse. And we were a 44% average in public school system prior to the pandemic. You could imagine how those scores of considerably gone down. All through my boys are in the public school system. And here in Washington state, our kids were out of school for almost two full years. And not only that, we have to get back to teaching math and reading. We have to get back to competitive quality education.

That are now telling pollsters. We're one out. We don't want to be in league with good because we don't want to be in league with you gavin wax. It almost feels like the gop finally realizing it's true power decided to man up. Nope don't be fooled. There are largely symbolic actions. Should only make all markelle. I demand more from the outset. We should be clear that any and all state and local pushback against the vast saying vaccine mandate is welcome. Even symbolic action can strengthen popular support and morale the real point however is that without the rightful and duty-bound exercise of power on top of. What's already in motion. The traditional american way of life will die. And we'll never come back. Now what is he talking about. The vaccine mandate is a historic test for our federalist sistema government. It's not a test for the federal courts or a federal midterm election. Nope this moment is about answering the question of whether or not the last amendment of the bill of rights to the constitution means anything anymore. Now if you're a member member from the spirit of seventy six my movie about the constitution and the follow up which you some of you may have a copy of the spirit of seventy six story continues. If you remember what amendment patrick henry and george mason say was the most important one and all and all the bill of rights the tenth. Thomas jefferson said without the tenth. There is no morroco. there is no union. Ten amendments powers not delegated to the united states by the constitution nor prohibited by it to the states are reserved to the states respectively or to the people.

"So but anyhow we had to get another helicopter and then we went out again. Later in the day brady had to land a minefield to rescue. Wounded servicemen. the dangerous were obvious and the detonation of one. Mind would add to the casualties. But once again brady's ingenuity resourcefulness made completing the mission. Possible the interesting thing about the minefield was we. Were not on that mission. Nother dust off. Aircraft had that mission and as we were coming over the top there a lot of traffic about wounded in the minefield everybody was apparently dead or wounded and a mind went off beside the helicopter was sitting on the ground the desktop and it left the area and so i saw that helicopter was sitting. I knew just about exactly where it skid marks were so i knew that if i could hit those skidmarks i wouldn't set off a mine when i landed two things landing one if you if you land on a mine or is command detonated. That's a problem but the other thing was the rotor. When you change power the downdraft can set off a mine. So i hit the spot right on the mark. Things are going good. Nobody will move. Mike mexican crew chief. I turn to him and i said go get him. They jumped that helicopter and they started dragging people to helicopter through the minefield. Nobody would help. Nobody would move and so on one of the trips they set off a mine. Blew him up in the air filled. The aircraft was shrapnel. Lights came on they landed. They had a patient on litter. And i think he took most of the shrapnel from the mine although some people think it was command. Nato i don't know But in any event they got up they got the rest of the patients loaded. Got him on the aircraft. We took him to the hospital. Including my two crew members were wounded and then we had to go get another helicopter. Brady was decorated for his actions that day but it would be many months later. He learned he would be receiving the highest possible award for valor. I was I got a call from westmoreland office one day and he said congratulations major scott -gratulations. You're gonna get the mental honor now. I had already gotten my second distinguished service cross which is second highest award and had a ceremony and everything. I didn't think anything about the medal of honor. But what they did.

"In that forty man detachment or twenty six purple hearts. That means twenty. Six people were wounded out of the forty man detachment in that nine and a half month period. Despite all those adversities we carried over twenty one thousand patients that was more than we're carried by helicopter in the entire korean war and is just one unit all the other dust off units. Were doing the same thing. Thousands and thousands of patients saving thousands and thousands of lives. When we come back. General brady will tell us about january.

Our guest in this edition is retired. Us army major general. Patrick henry brady who served two tours of duty. As a dust off pilot in vietnam on january six nineteen sixty eight brady's dedication to evacuating those in need. Above and beyond the call of duty would result in him receiving the medal of honor. The conditions were very difficult that day fog shrouded the area midst the mountains and of course the enemy was lurking and firing as usual but brady was ready for the challenge because he had figured out how to navigate these conditions on an earlier mission. I was scared to death of the weather and the mountains and the fact that they were going to start killing our pilots because we were losing more pilots to accidents at night and in whether than the enemy was killing. So i got a call one day from a young trooper who is on a mountain topped and he'd been bitten by a snake in in the afternoon. The clouds were come down over the mountains about halfway down so complete zero visibility underneath it clear visibility but in order to get to the kid. On the mountaintop we had to go into the clouds. No radar control no letdown facilities. No nothing and so. I came into the clouds knowing. I could fall out into the valley and would be visual. But i didn't have any idea how i was going to get that kid out. The meantime praying like crazy asking the good lord. Do show me how to do it crews nervous. They're screaming at me on the ground. He's going into convulsions. Desktop please please. I told him we got to try it. One more time so we went back around. Backup the mound into the soup and i was blown sidewards. That was breath of god. And i looked at my window. I was looking for a hole in the jungle. I thought we were going to crash. And i see the tip of the rollerblade and i could see the top of the trees. So guess what i knew i was right side up so i turned thank sidewards up the mountain into the area. Got the kid. Got him to the hospital and i think he lived. That was technique from that moment on low valley fog afternoon. Build up to reference points sidewards. And you can get in. They can't stop us. And so the day of the medal of honor action..

Chances were greater than if you were in a crash on a highway in america. That's how effective. That helicopter was in that war and brady says the legacy of charles kelly is alive and well with medical evacuation pilots to this very day his his by the way his dying words when i have your wounded set the standard for dust off to this day and you will not find one.

This week is retired. Us army major. General patrick brady. He served two tours of duty as a dust off. Medical evacuation pilot in vietnam as we mentioned earlier flying. These helicopters took a great deal of skill and coordination and the north vietnamese and viet cong made that job much harder on just about every mission. We were under fire every day every day that we went into an area to pickup patients. We were picking them up on the battlefield after kelly came. He's he opened the gates for the vietnamese patients so we no longer sat on the ground and waited till american was wounded before we went on kelly was the forty ninth american killed out of eventual. Number would be fifty eight thousand so they didn't fly much before that but once we started picking up the enemies from the battlefield. We flew every day every night. And we were under fire most of the time so the key then was to find a way to stay alive and so we developed different flying techniques approaches and signals with the people on the ground to figure out how we can get in there and get the patient out and stay alive and so one of the initial things very simple thing was the guy on the ground would say dust off red smokers out and you look down there from about two thousand feet and you see three or four red smokes. Guess what the communists were listening to us. And when they heard red smoke they pop smoke hoping we would fly into their area and then happened a few times too so we should listen to it. this way. You pop smoke. I'll identify the color. And then you confirm that. I have the right smoke in the right color. And then we'll come on so that's one simple example of how you learn as you go to keep alive on the battlefield and then after that we developed different approaches overhead spiral as fast as you could fall as quick as you could get there. A low level fast approach over the terrain to use. The terrain is covering concealment..

Members usually under heavy enemy fire for his tireless dedication to rescuing are men under fire on january six thousand nine hundred sixty eight brady was awarded the medal of honor. Patrick henry brady was born in south dakota in nineteen thirty six but he mostly grew up in washington. State in highschool brady was a standout athlete and was field in college. Scholarship offers but he had a very different goal on his mind and that led him down a rather tumultuous road as an rotc student at seattle university. Well when i came out of high school. I went to an all boys catholic high school and i had scholarship offers to play football at different university around the north west. But at the time. I was stocking this foxy chick and she was going to university that jesuit university. That did not have a football team so rather than lose her. I decided that i would go to the same university she went to. And when i got there i found out they had rotc and it was mandatory. And i hated it. It did not like the idea that they could force me to wear a uniform and say sir to these kids around the campus. And so i didn't do well and in fact they booted me out. They told me go to summer camp one summer. And i decided i would go to alaskan instead and so i went to alaska turns money to go back to school and then i married the foxy check and so she talked me into. Should you need to go back and finish. Rotc and they actually took me back a great great leader. There guy made your snyder. He said we'll give me a second chance brady and so they took me back into. Rotc and was commissioned and went into the military. Did my basic training here. My first assignment was in berlin germany. Brady's time and berlin would have a major impact on how he viewed our nation and the world while he was stationed there. The communists erected the berlin wall and he saw firsthand. how many lives were thrown into misery. Well of course. I remember most the fact that i was there before the wall and i was aired during the wall and they built a wall and after the wall the most amazing thing about it was that before the wall was free access to all sectors of berlin or four different sectors of berlin eastward controlled by the russians and the east germans..

"Down the road in my opinion i. It reminds me of the introduction to the book about patrick henry that i read where i was shocked to find shocked accusations. That were supported well supported. I thought that thomas jefferson went out of his way like winston churchill did to craft his own image for history but what he did also was. He tried to diminish the image of patrick henry. So patrick henry is my favorite founder and he might have been considered the greatest. Thomas jefferson as if it weren't for thomas jefferson's intentional craftiness. And i'm thinking that this idea of writing history in real time cre- fabricating history in real time is probably as old as writing itself. As old as the first history they have i history was probably written to glorify someone. It makes you really question some of the official documents that you look back to from fifty s or sixty s or even before then when you see how the official documents are being created right now. Oh i'm thinking about the contemporary writings from before the constitution and then even back to hammurabi. I'm wondering if they say that writing was created to keep track of taxes. So i wonder if the next step was simply to to explain the the divinity of the king. Yeah he's written by the storytellers. People who tell the stories that make the most lasting impression in people's minds and hearts yes. That is true. So i know i said i was going to talk about the neo. Reactionary thing heard about. But i think that is a. I started to look into that and i could. I think i need some time to wrap my mind around that one. That's going to have to be an exploration. I'm absolutely and here where people have to say about it if they want to contribute to my thinking but i believe it's the guy michael malice i never listened to. That's kind of thing. I don't listen to because i don't want to have original slots and molester. Yeah i know he's very smart. That is for sure. But cam are frank. Cam told me. I was talking about it. Like i noticed that academia politics and the media are three places where they absolutely do nothing. There's no real feedback or consequences to their view of the world. If it's wrong or not yet. They're the ones who want to tell us how to look at the world and what and what to do and how to live and he said oh you just invented the cathedral. That's what michael mouse calls cathedral. Well michael malice got it from somebody else. He got it from this guy who i trying to find a book on it. Don't have a book for anyone has a book of this neo. Reactionary guy and it gets into the mechanisms the tactics that they use really behind the scenes. And i think it's going to be very interesting. But it's going to be a much bigger project than i thought so. Let me let me take a little bit of rain. Check on that one and remind. And i want to remind people that if you do have an event that you think propaganda report listeners would have fun at or benefit from even if it's just a farmer's market let me know i'll shout it out and i'll send you t shirts so send that to the propaganda report.

The talent talents kind of a given is the tenacity that kind of separates people. What do you what do you think when you hear that. I used to spend them very similar. said The talent also will succeed with hustle without talent succeeds beyond talent without hustled. I used to hear that. So it's like the examples of people that weren't necessarily the most talented in the world. The thing that they did but they hustle and they were everywhere with their thing and you saw them succeeding. You know i mean. I live in an era of soldier. Boy is eligible is not the most talented rapper. He was really the one that solidified for me. Like wait to say soldier boy can make all this. Money is not the the most talented rapper. however he made he was everywhere. he hustled. Like no one else you know.

Give me liberty or give me death. When you don't have freedom on the biggest freedom is freedom of speech. You are biological creature. You are not a human If you can't say what you think. For fear of retribution. You become. A man eating and drinking and relieving. Being but you you have lost. That which truly makes you human, the ability to express yourself. I visited Communist countries. That's what I was struck by the Relegation of human beings into this Basically biological status. They woke up. They went to work. They didn't get paid based on excellence. Just, um, equality. They went home. They were monitored for speech at all times. The streets were very quiet. Just there's really not much to say to anybody in a totalitarian state. I was struck by that by the number of people in the street in Moscow. Let's say And the lack of banter. Certainly the lack of smiles. Because you're not. You're not human. So it's one of the reasons. It's always been a problem in Russia the drinking problem, but it's one of the reasons that it was exacerbated. Terribly. The amount of alcohol consumed in the Soviet Union. Because there's nothing else to do. This is what the left does whenever it takes power. It ends freedom.

"Patrick Henry. And providential. Don't you think that none of those three were there? Yeah. Jefferson had Odd ideas he wanted at about this time. He's recommending to Madison that every law in every contract should sunset every 34 years because the earth belongs to the living. That's quote and you should start over. Uh, Madison, right? Sandbag. Madison was very good for Thomas Jefferson and vice versa, and Madison writes him back and says, Well, that's brilliant argument and true in every respect, except it is, in fact, the purpose of laws and especially constitutions to prejudice the actions of the next generation, and this one on, Jefferson writes pregnancies. All right on down Jefferson and Adams were abroad. A massive goring and there and Adams was just a cranky guy. At times he would have, he would have stormed out too often. Well, he helped to write the Massachusetts Constitution, and that's a thing of very high quality. So I actually regret his loss. But they did pretty well. Patrick Henry, you do not regret his absence. I do not know he Opposed the Constitution. And, you know, people of very high quality opposed the ratification of the Constitution. So in Virginia, the very great George Mason opposed George Washington. And suffered the fate that such people do and the very great although I think wrong about this and some other things, Patrick Henry opposed both Washington and Madison in Virginia, reminded of Jefferson's letter to Madison about that opposition. We shall just have to pray that he die. I'll.

"Eight four eight nine two two two now the quote that it may Patrick Henry's famous is give me liberty or give me blank now how do we fill in that blank is it with a Florentine on healthy people that's mandated by the government and no that's not the answer it's give me liberty or give me death because liberty is what we have to fight for and we should be willing to put our lives on the line for that liberty now this morning as I was preparing for the show and just being cheeky I was looking at some quotes from G. K. Chesterton Catholic philosopher from late eighteen hundreds early nineteen hundreds and he says they and in this case I'm talking about Liberal Democrats but he says they suffer from the modern and morbid weaknesses of always sacrificing the normal to the abnormal and I was like man that that is he struck by a O. C. all out crazy right she's willing to do the green new deal she's willing to work super hard to sacrifice the normal for the sake of the abnormal because that's what progress is about right there theory of progress which is flawed and there's a whole other quote on that maybe I'll get to it later is about changing the status quo claiming that the status quo doesn't work for example capitalism she says capitalism is no good so we need socialism meanwhile capitalism is what really makes this whole engine go around but that's not the point I want to make I want to talk about restaurants and yeah that's someone on the topic of capitalism but more so is to eat or not eat that is the question and what we have right now is you know ninety percent of restaurants are closed and just a few of them are starting to open up so yesterday somebody tells me listen America is dead no one's ever going back to work ever businesses are adapting to the new social distancing standards they're only gonna survive temporarily he couldn't help but sigh housing man now he can't be that America's debt one example that you know we talked about was how bars are going to have to be eliminated because you can no longer be belly to belly like Curtis Lewis says that the bar because you got to be six feet away so just imagine you're leaning on the bar you like you're sure you're shorter you which avoid you like it was up to and they're six feet away from you you're like salute air cheers right you can't even clink glasses so this is the example he made was we got to eliminate bars because you got to be six feet away so they're just not going to have a bar there'd be table service and these tables would be six feet away from each other so I'm like I don't know I don't know about any of this stuff so I thought to myself let me take a look what's out there and I find this article about a restaurant that's re opening in Texas and they're opening and they're following the six feet social distancing standards and under the Texas state law you don't I have to wear a mask to work in the restaurant or to even go in the restaurant like the master not required in public so the owner says to the people that were laid off Hey listen I got some forty hour work weeks available and I want to ask for them to you guys here's the thing nobody that comes in the restaurant is allowed to wear a mask since they're being consistent that you don't have to wear a mask in Texas with the public law and I thought to myself interesting there is a debate there some people may say well look obvious I can't eat I'm going out for steak I can't eat with a mask on my face right stakes not going down so how do I feel about being served by somebody that's wearing a mask do I feel like it's clean or do I feel like hold on do they got the cooties are they not give you so the owner made that decision for everybody said look if you want to work here you want your job back no masks so what I want to know mask or no mask if you go to this restaurant in Texas or anywhere else around the world I want to know what it bother you if your server wore a mask and gloves we're not and you think it's right or wrong for the owner to do that one eight hundred eight four eight W.

An Introduction to the Life of Samuel Davies
"On this episode. I'm on location in Virginia and we're here to talk about the missionary or possible to Virginia's he was known Samuel Davies. Samuel Davies was born on November the third seventeen twenty three three as a young man. He was educated at Blair's log college. This is Samuel Blair. This is in Chester County Pennsylvania Blair's log college. It was modeled after the original log college of the tenants over in the shamanic Pennsylvania that of course became Princeton University but this is Blair's log college. When he was finished with his education he was ordained as a minister in seventeen forty seven at the age of twenty four and the presbytery sent him to Hanover County Virginia George Whitfield had gone through Hanover county in seventeen forty five and so are they sent along Samuel Davies to help some of those seeds that had been sown grow. The ten years that Samuel Davies was there from seventeen seventeen forty-seven through the end of seventeen fifty seven those years are known as the years of the Hanover revivals was during that time that Davies I started seven churches and he pastored those seven churches he taught many not only of the whites here in Virginia but also African Americans some slaves freed African Americans he taught Indians he wanted to establish a college log college like he had been trained at but he just wasn't able to all of those seven churches so we had a college on wheels he would carry along in his wagon books and he would just give out books to various students young men who showed promise in the church to be trained as he would go from church to church well in seventeen. I'm fifty three for two years. He took a hiatus from his ministry here in Virginia and joined Gilbert tenant to go to England on a fundraising tour for for the College of New Jersey which would come to be called Princeton. It was a very successful fundraising tour and they were able to raise enough money to build Nassau Hall aw there on the campus of Princeton and when it was built it was the largest building an all of the American colonies and Samuel Davies helped raise the money seventeen fifty nine year before the death of Jonathan Edwards as president of Princeton the trustees of Princeton invite Samuel Davies to come and be the president. He arrives sometime in the fall of seventeen fifty nine. He serves there for about eighteen months and he dies in seventeen eighteen sixty one of consumption as we look at Samuel Davies Life. We can see five things that marked his life. I was his oratory. Sorry he was quite a speaker. Patrick Henry would come in here. Samuel Davies preaches often as he could because he was just so impressed by his rhetorical skill skill and how he could just hold an audience and how he could be so persuasive with the spoken word. Secondly is religious liberty. This was an Anglican colony. He was a dissenter he was illegal here in Virginia and he constantly had to petition for his presence in for or these churches that he had planted to be established he would argue in the capital at Williamsburg based on the sixteen eighty nine act of tolerate that there should be religious freedom here in the colonies. Thomas Jefferson used his arguments to later argue for religious liberty. He was committed education should not only training students here as he pastored these churches but also as president of Princeton. He was a poet he wrote many poems. He wrote a hymn who who is a pardoning. God like the or who has grace so rich and free and finally he was a preacher he preached for the conversion and the salvation of men well that is Samuel Davies the apostle to Virginia born on November third seventeen twenty three died died on February four seventeen sixty one and I'm Steve Nichols.

Virginia, Charlottesville And Two Years discussed on The Von Haessler Doctrine
"This month marks two years since the deadly unite the right rally in Charlottesville Virginia this was a governor of Virginia at the time he told a state of emergency is those protests got out of hand he's out with a new book called beyond Charlottesville but she reflects on that day and the response from president trump a long conversation with him this week which will air on next week's show this week we talked about president trump's behavior his most recent attacks in Baltimore and Elijah Cummings when this all happened in the two years since then where do you think things have gone when you look at now with congressman Elijah Cummings in and the city of Baltimore rat infested we had you know criticisms of of the four democratic women in Congress nothing is out now saying it is that it is race but where do we stand when it comes to race two years well it is Russian people as well time is the present a racist and full disclosure I've known him for twenty years yes he's a racist because you can't say and do the things that he does I mean his coming out party was Charlottesville I mean that was you know this is a defining moment in our country in who we are as a nation I mean we're mosaic tile of immigrants which makes a strong and he just he came out and showed us who he was that day he was a supporter of in white nationalism and he continues to say that he about the squad telling them to go home we don't three of the four were born here in this great country I think he wants the nation of white nationalists it is sad for our nation put politics aside we're stronger when we're together the thing with the allies you Cummings you know you know I think the guy you like slip signed faxing news in apparent that morning they'd had a story about well the more and you know he's such a simpleton he watches says he's mad Elijah because he's going after his daughter of aka and you know always mad because you going after the CBA custom border patrol he sees this on facts and he tweets away it is scary for the country it's sad for the country that's why we're gonna beat him coming out but is bad is Charlottesville was I was very sure one of the good things actually came out of it is it ripped the scab off of racism I think for far too long in our country we believe that we had dealt with racism and everything was okay you know people have their reconciliation commission that's a waste of time to me that's a bunch of white people sit around talking make themselves feel good we have been in a quick inequities in school today is governor I work hard in Richmond to Norfolk in Petersburg Virginia we have been for your schools inferior facilities we don't have the same quality teachers and all of our schools and this racism so my point in the book in the last chapter I work with John Lewis who does forward for me and where do we go from here but until we deal the inequities in school and housing and healthcare delivery and a horribly racist criminal justice system races this year it is going to be prevalent and I think we need to face as a country what do you think it's taken us so long to have these conversations about race I mean when you look how long ago the civil war was it and then you look at you know Jim crow following that but still you know since it's been a hundred hundred fifty years why is it taking us so long to have these discussions good question and I go back to point I think people feel comfortable people don't like to discuss race I think until trump in the words racism you hadn't heard it has some high H. calling people racist I'm obviously we dealt with the horrible situation that we had in this country during massive resistance in the Jim crow laws but since their point I think people wanted to be comfortable they didn't want to have these conversations honestly is I saved Charlotte's feel ripped that scab off and people realized it's here it's prevalent now for me in in the last chapter of the book where do we go from here I just don't like to you'll you'll find the book fascinating known how we lead up to it and what I did with the state police and my National Guard and all the different stuff but I think you'll find it fascinating listen we'll horrible history in Virginia we were the capital of the confederacy we had one of the worst slave trading facilities in the United States of America we still have three hundred and fifty eight monuments in Virginia you know we have a handfuls of the revolutionary war started in Virginia member in Saint John's church give me the money give me death by Patrick Henry it ended in Virginia the battle Yorktown we have a couple statues we've a couple to World War one the war to end all wars we've a couple to World War two three hundred nearly sixty statues to the civil war you know in many of them sharing this is a second part many of them they weren't put up after the civil war they were done during mass resistance this is a direction not if the African American community to say no we are supreme we are white and in some has to be
