Ned Ryun: We Have to Beat Democrats With Early Voting, Mail-In Ballots

"Here's one of the challenges. About early voting and mail in ballots. The founder of American majority, Ned Ryan, is a great, great voice in America. I see him pop up on Fox News all the time. He's often on Tucker over the weekend. He said this to Pete hegseth on Fox News channel. And states where we know early voting and mail in ballots, it is rife for corruption and fraud, where we have the ability to outlaw, we must. And where we can't. And I have to tell you, Pete, after Tuesday night's elections in Michigan and Pennsylvania and other places, we better play by the rules of the game that have been laid out for us. And if they want to have early voting, universal mail in, ballot harvesting in those states, we better figure out how to beat them at their own game. He's right, of course, we got to beat them at their own game. I don't know what that means. Because here's the problem with Ned Ryan's argument. Florida. Lots of early in person voting. I was one of them. Thank goodness. I wound up having COVID election week and was working from home and was scheduled to travel. It was supposed to be in South Carolina, so I did something I don't like to do. I went early. I hate early voting. I want to go on election day. I'll stand in a line. But I went early. There are plenty of mail in ballots in Florida as well. Why does Florida have no problem? Counting the votes.

A Reorientation Around the Education of Your Kids With Pete Hegseth

"Feel like protesting at school boards today for the most part is like charging a fortified machine gun nest with a nerf gun. I salute your efforts, but you're probably going to die. Because it only fortifies their position and their belief in their own power and strength and lack of accountability in that position. So I recognize there are a lot of people that can't leave their current educational situation. And in that case, fight, fight with all your might for your kids and give them every single opportunity in your home to, but that's going to be a full-time job, unwinding the indoctrination that they're facing at school. And I know my 12 year old, my 12 year old is not capable of being salt and light right now. Not yet. My 6 year old still thinks he has a legitimate shot at being Batman. Okay? They're not ready to take on the culture wars. I want to fortify them before I ask them and prepare them to be salt and light in the world. So what we argue for in the book is a radical reorientation of your life around the education of your kids.

Removing School Prayer Was One of the Worst Modern US Decisions

"The prayer that was in schools was a theistic prayer. It was not Christian. It basically said to the God of above, we thank you for today and we pray for my classmates and my country. It was very simple. And I truly believe as soon as we removed prayer from schools, that was one of the worst decisions that has happened in modern America. I really believe that in more ways than one. And

How Were the Founding Fathers Educated? Pete Hegseth Explains

"Are the founding fathers educated? So don't you think every single kid in America to date deserves the type of education that brought the brilliance of 1776? And it wasn't complicated. This was a 2000 year lineage of western civilization of judeo Christian values. The marriage of Athens and Jerusalem of faith and reason that was the great books that was biblical wisdom that was Latin. It was Greek. It was theology. It was philosophy. It was actual history, it was those ingredients that they grappled with that they debated about that brought about that brilliance of the greatest human experiment we've ever seen on the planet. It was not an accident. Churches had a great deal to do with it, who were many of the leaders of our revolution. Ministers and reverence. Who is the who is the top I'm not trying to get into a tangent here. Do you know who the top what would be reverend, I guess, at Harvard University is today? He's an atheist. It's true. It's an atheist. We're so far gone from what our founders actually engaged with it. They would not recognize it at all today. It was a classical Christian education. It was the way, and none of it was, it wasn't perfect, but they understood that teaching people to think critically, created free thinking people who couldn't be captured by demagoguery. And when you can think critically and think freely whether you're a mason or a blacksmith or a farmer, do you think people in the 1780s or 90s had more use for a classical education than we do today? Absolutely not.

What Happens in the Classroom Is More Important Than the Ballot Box

"Focused on the election. Great. But the people that are actually going to control the country are not control the country. It's actually more important what's happening in the classroom than even the ballot box right now. It's actually a lot more important of what values are you passing down. How do you view the world? Do you believe there is a God? Do you believe America is a good country? That's the most important thing in front of us. And Pete did an amazing job researching this book. It was a bestseller all across the board, and I look forward to exploring it, not just talking about the problem, but also the solution, because we in Arizona, we need to be on the front edge of we already have great school choice legislation, thankfully, but starting new micro schools, hybrid schools supporting dream city Christian, turning point academy, sending your kids there and understanding the threats that every single kid in government schools right now in the state of Arizona is likely being propagandized by this progressive venom. And we have a duty as Christians to care about that and go about solving it. So

It's Not Enough to Be a Spectator, You Have to Be a Participant

"Of your own political leanings or your own kind of wishes coming this Tuesday. The most important thing is this is that in the next 5 or 6 days, you have to understand that it's not enough to be a spectator. It has to be you have to be a participant. And by the way, this is a nonpartisan thing to say if you are not yet signed up to be an election judge, I highly recommend you look into that so that we have fair and free elections coming this Tuesday. There are a lot of open election judge positions still, Maricopa, I think, has all of them filled except for a couple areas. If you don't know what election judges, it's just an election observer, someone that's making sure the process unfolds. And I hate to break it to you. It's probably going to take a couple of days to find out whoever wins whatever race here in Tuesday.

But let's dive right in here. When everybody, if they wish to and it has nothing to do with the laptop, this was a hack of an iCloud account Hunter Biden's account. Everybody can hear the voicemail Joe Biden left his son saying, I've seen the article coming out in The New York Times tomorrow. It's okay. You're in the clear. Shouldn't that be something that any press secretary should have something to say about Ari? No. Because when you're Joe Biden's brush, what she's really saying is, this is a topic that's off limits. It's taboo. I won't talk about it, and I know no one other than Fox News will ask me about it because all the rest of the reporters in this room are soft and easy on my boss. So therefore, I don't have to. As you get away. So perfect answer because she knows how the mainstream media would

Pete Hegseth and Doug Discuss Confronting the Local School Board

"The things that bothers me the most in our political conservatives, I think we're we get isolated on thinking top thinker. And I say this in this way. We're oscillating on the president, the Senate, the U.S. Congress, maybe a governor, but we fail to see that in our, even in our local communities where we just don't want to think these things are going on. It's the local school boards. You know, if you talk about this, because there'll be some who can't make that option. But what they can do and we've seen over the past year and I've heard you talk about this as well is confront the local school boards. And understand that at the same time moving the children giving that ability to turn. But I've been very disappointed at conservatives. Republicans in particular. There are areas of criminal justice reform, education reform. We as conservatives don't feel like, I mean, what it looks like. I hear other members of Congress and others, they don't all, yeah, I'm for school choice, but I don't want to lead it. I'm for this, but it's like, when did anybody it's almost like we've lost our willingness to realize our history of the buckleys and others that you go out and you confront as an intellectual superiority, the conservative movement. Well, you're precisely right. We have the principles, but they have the positions. And so we think by voting every two or four years, we're going to vote our way out of this problem. And the book thoroughly disavows the reader that this is an effective strategy. It's exactly how we got where we are. And yes, running for school board is a part of the solution. If you don't have an alternative or your lifestyle doesn't provide an option to homeschool or find a classical Christian school, and they are in that public school, then you better be all over it. Or run for those positions to oversee it. But don't go there to be a placeholder and think you're just going to vote and solve everything. You got to be aggressive. You got to be an activist. You have to be involved.

Pete Hegseth on the Journey of the Teacher in the Classroom

"In the navy, our friends in the neighborhood, they always like to joke that the ship at sea, the captain is God. I mean, there's no other place to go as long as she upset sleep. In very similar ways, the college professor, and then in turn their teacher that they're teaching, but then that teacher getting in a classroom. This is what I see and I've heard from you several times a teacher college explain what that link is important. The teaching of The Pentagon, the audiology and for the teacher quote, teacher college into the classrooms and elementary schools and hostile. It's so important because that pipeline is what insulates a lot of what is taught from what we say is conservatives all the time of local control. So you might, you might live in a more conservative state where you've got a Republican governor and school boards that are watching it. But more or less, and there are more or less the educational pipeline of teacher accreditation, what they get taught, the new types of teaching methods that they are the unions that they confront. All of the aspects of how they land in the classroom are controlled by the hard left. And so even if especially today, I think they're consolidation is even more powerful today. So by the time you reach it, reach the classroom as a new teacher today, you've gone through an education college and accreditation certification, all of which. During which you have to engage with these diversity equity inclusion concepts. And if you don't engage with them as gospel, you're not allowed to pass or you have to quietly, you know, you can't dissent from it. So once you get into the classroom, you've already gone through that. And then you're, if your local school board or school district is saying you can or can not do that, it conflicts with the curriculum and the pedagogy that's still in the classroom. So I always always a believer of local control and I still am, of course, but I'm trying to disavow parents and grandparents of this view that I can just move to the right zip code

"Let's talk a minute about Marxism, right? Because I think I was always raised. It was an economic thing, right? It's like the haves, they have nots. But now we realize that it's a philosophy that basically divides people one way or the other. However, we can divide people and create resentment. And so now it's cultural Marxism. Now it says if I'm transgender or I'm lesbian or I'm a woman or I'm a whatever group I can identify with that can say we're oppressed and we're against our oppressors. So the names and categories have been changed. But it's the same context and it was brought in by the Frankfurt school. You mentioned gramsci, marcuse. These people in the 40s, whenever that was, they brought Marxist philosophy, which is atheist philosophy. It's not neutral. It's seriously atheist, philosophy. They brought it in to the universities. And William F. Buckley, when he was at Yale in the late 40s, he saw this. Now, imagine in the late 40s, he writes a book called God and man at Yale, uncovering all this stuff. That was the late 40s. So by the time I was there in the 80s, political correctness had already swamped the campus, whatever. Now, of course, it's pure madness. But it's amazing to me that we're not teaching the evils of cultural Marxism. Most people don't know what the Frankfurt school is. And most people don't even know how to react because they don't know, they still don't know what's happening. One of the things that Pete and I were both surprised at is that, you know, I did my colonel of research in the early part of this and of course I know classical Christian education. Pete did most of the work in the 20th century. And the puzzle pieces fit together like they were hand in glove to mix metaphors a bit. But it was unbelievable. Dewey's at Columbia until about 1930, the Frankfurt school shows up in about 34, 35, you see this develop, you see the cultural revolution, talk about cultural Marxism in Maoist China in the late 1960s where he realizes that you can not make economic Marxism work without cultural revolution. And it just, the whole thing flows together. And I think what the book does is provide a sweeping narrative of the 20th century to show us how we got where we are and then, of course, it prescribes a solution. We try to simplify it. You know, it goes from western Christian paideia to the American progressive paideia, which lasts all the way up to basically 9 11. So think of the collective response we were able to have at 9 11, even with a progressive padang. Yes. Now we're about to have a culturally marked, what in the world could we respond to? We're internally an extra. We're going to go to another break. We've got plenty more don't go away. Hey there, folks. I'm bursting in from my vacation because I'm so angry at a certain injustice that I learned about yesterday. I'm not kidding. As you know, we're talking today. We're talking to Pete hegseth, talking about important classical education in our two. We got more with Pete hegseth and we have Andrew Giuliani. I recorded some extra stuff with him by the grace of God he will be the next governor of New York. So there's hope. But I want to say there are ugly things happening. Yesterday, some of you know about this, Walmart. Walmart canceled Mike lindell and my pillow. What does it mean? Perhaps Walmart discovered that Mike makes his products in America and they want everything that they sell to be from China. Maybe that's what it is. Or maybe they're just political cowards. Maybe they don't know that most of the people who shop in their stores love America, love Mike lindell, love people who make their products in America. So I was upset by this. I said, I want to get on the air today, even though I'm supposed to have this day off, but no, I said, I've got to tell my audience, please support Mike lindell today. You can support this program as well by using the code Eric, but Mike lindell has posted a bunch of crazy discounts today to encourage people because let me tell you, this is a huge hit for somebody like Mike lindell. And if we don't stand up for him, this is, you know, whether my show was a sponsor of his or not. This is really important as Americans that we stand with those who are doing their best, we stand with those who are speaking the truth when everybody is being told shut up, don't talk about this, don't talk about that..

"That's the key. And let's be honest. Okay, we're talking about freedom, right? And so if you're teaching somebody to think for themselves, it means you have an innate assumption that you can trust people to find this thing called truth. If they're honest. But if you don't believe that, then you have to do propaganda. Or you're exactly right about that, or you make an excuse, which is what we're entering an industrialized economy now. Not everyone needs those skills. So we'll have an elite few who think about things like philosophy, but the rest of you really just need to learn a hard skill. And we see that still today and the idea of stem education. Stems fine. But that becomes the focus. It's one step away from metal shop, okay? No, but I mean, that's kind of how I see it. It's like you can learn to think, or you can get a trade. And if the trade is science, it's like a more of a highfalutin trade, but it's still, you need to be taught how to think. Everyone does. Correct. So it's a wise welder, as opposed to what woke welder, which we have now. I mean, everyone deserves the ability to think critically. And as David points out, that was a no more useful thing for a farmer or a blacksmith. In the founding generation that it is today for someone else. But if freedom of a republic is what's at stake and the ability to think through the propaganda, they want more people educated that way as opposed to liberated. I'm just so glad you wrote this book, battle for the American mind. Do you so where do you start in the book at what is it? Well, we start with the problem identification. I mean, we start with the COVID 16, 19 moment. So here we are in zoom classrooms and you're watching what your kids are learning and suddenly the 1619 Project and CRT and gender obfuscation is right there in front of you. How did this happen? And meet people where they're at and then start to walk backwards of well, here's precisely how it happened. Okay, and again, we've got to remind people what a blessing, the nightmare of COVID turned out to be because if it hadn't been for that nightmare and the overreach of the radical left, most parents would never have known. Decades pass and you don't know. Suddenly, millions of parents woke up and said, wow, wait a minute. Hold on. All right, we'll be right back.

'Battle for the American Mind' With Pete Hegseth and David Goodwin

"Hey folks final segment talking with Pete hegseth and David Goodwin battle for the American mind uprooting a century of miseducation. So Pete the headline here is that you're not just an empty talking head on Fox and Friends. It's not like they say he's smart. He could do things. It gives me such joy to know that you not only get this stuff but that you've joined with David and written a book about it and that you're using your platform to get the word out to the American people about what is happening. I think part of this has been as a father, a journey of discovery myself as a parent. And that's how we've treated this book and how we treated the film series at Fox nation as well. David, I call him my Sherpa, you know? He's leading me through and I'm discovering in real time very much like most of our viewers are right now. Oh my goodness. I knew there were some problems. I didn't realize it was this big. And hopefully, because I've only more recently made some of the choices to get my kids intentionally into some of these schools. So all of us are behind the curve. And I feel this ticking clock in my mind of every moment they're not in that education. I'm not doing what I should be doing for them. Yes, I need to be doing it in the home. Yes, I need to be doing it in church, but to not have the third part of that of the classroom reinforcing the things that I believe. I'm just losing time. And so I would urge the same thing to parents, do the research, take a look, it's not enough to feel like your principles are nice guy or you've got two members of the school board. That's wonderful. We should fight those places. I don't think we should give up any space. But right now we're in a knife fight. We're in the kill zone. And they've got to surround it and you've got to act when you're in that spot.

"Com. Hey, welcome back folks. We're talking about American education, battle for the American mind is the book uprooting a century of miseducation, David Goodwin has written it with Pete hegseth in that David. You're the head of the association of classical Christian schools. So you're like a brainy guy. Pete is just like a talking hit on Fox and Friends. We know he has nothing to say if it's not on a teleprompter. Pete, how did you get involved in this? I've always learned to join forces with people smarter than me. That's the key. Andy's humble, which makes me hate him even more. You went to Princeton, you went to the Harvard Kennedy school of government. What did you major in at Princeton? Politics. You did. I did. Political philosophy. As sort of a degree of that. But I'll tell you what I've learned in this project, how much I didn't learn. I didn't learn any of this stuff. My kids are in classical Christian schools, and all I say every day is, why can't I go back to school and learn these things? Okay, you're singing my song. I have said this over and over in the last couple of decades. I learned something. I wrote a book called if you can keep it Franklin's famous line. And because of Oz Guinness, whose book I had read, I understood things, and all I could think of is how did I not get this? I didn't get any of this. So you obviously going through this elite schools, which like Yale. I mean, they don't teach you this stuff. Not they teach you John Dewey on steroids, I guess. And they teach you now the latest manifestations of the Frankfurt school and critical theory, which is now we now see as critical race theory and we talk about every day. But it was just the water in which we swam. I took social studies. We all took social studies who invented social studies. Yeah, why is it not history? Why is it social studies? We can't get into that. We can't get into that, don't talk about it. I didn't know where that all came from. David had done the research, and then I was able to lay it upon the environment in which we live right now and realize we all got a progressive education. Yeah. Almost everyone watching guaranteed. Right. Got a progressive education that was started by atheist advanced by marxists who had their own agenda and it all happened subtly, and a lot of us think we aren't infected, but we are. And so you have to dig under the ruins of what used to exist. And that's what David did in this project. This is the way education our founders were educated, how free people and republics actually perpetuate themselves. Why don't we do that? As opposed to what we're doing now. I have to say to people need to understand that if you don't get this stuff, if you don't really understand this, you really can't combat it because you don't know. This is why I think so many people are cowards. I mean, so many Republicans are cowards. They don't really understand it. And they're kind of afraid of being questioned. So they just go like, well, what do I need to say so that you don't come after me? I'll just say whatever you want me to say. Because they don't really understand what is happening. And so what you're talking about when you talk about John Dewey signing the atheist humanist manifesto, we need to understand there's a worldview, it is an atheistic worldview. It is at war with the biblical worldview. And we couldn't have America without the biblical world. You don't need to be a Christian to be an American, but you need to understand historically speaking, you do not get American style self government without the Israel covenant of the Old Testament or whatever. It's just not you can talk all day you want about the Iroquois system and people kind of throw this stuff out there. But it's historical fact, isn't it? I mean, you can't really argue with it, but you can ignore it. Well, you know, in the book we talk about the liberal arts and how they were originally developed by the Greeks to enable a republic or a democracy. And we, in this day and age, we think it's just a natural thing. One of the things Pete talks about in the book is his time, pizza, a veteran, and he talks about his time in Afghanistan and the differences that you see in the paideia of the different parts of the world. And we're taking for granted this critical thing that's liberal art tradition. Where people can are trained to think for themselves. That's the key independently minded..

"Amazing. But what was the animus of folks like do we against God in the west? Where did that come from that they were dedicated to getting rid of western values and principles? Well, Dewey was a primary signer on the humanist manifesto as you probably know. And that sounds like an okay thing, right? Humanist manifesto. But what it really was was an atheist manifesto. Of course. It was a man is going to become the new God. And that is what they were set out to do. That was the mission that they set out for. And as Pete pointed out, they had to take it through the path of, well, let's make America the God for a while. And then Pete picks up in the book and the destination that they ultimately ended at was the cultural Marxist paida. Yeah, they moved from a progressive once they had opened the vacuum by removing God. And they were atheists. They were effectively atheist, and there was a belief that man was perfectible. And the human condition through. Where did that idea come from? Ye shall be as gods. Who said that again? Ask a wild or no Satan, sorry, with Satan. It's kind of amazing how you have reality, and then you have anything else. In other words, no matter how you go away from God's reality, it always ends up being the same lies over and over in different guises. But how fascinating that the idea of the perfectibility of man is utopian impulse, you see it in the Tower of Babel. You see it in the French Revolution. You see it now. It's over and over and over again. And one of the reasons I was excited to talk to you guys is to educate people that there's nothing new. There's God's reality and truth, and then there's however you try to get away from it. It always ends up being the same thing ultimately. So we've got plenty of time to discuss this folks. The book is battle for the American mind Pete hegseth and David Goodwin will be right back. In case you haven't been paying attention, the Biden administration has caused a financial crisis and they have no clue how to fix it. Oil prices have skyrocketed and when oil prices go up, the cost of transportation and shipping spikes leading the prices of goods to rise. And when we're already seeing record inflation, that's the last thing we need. Our economy is in trouble and you need to take steps to protect yourself. If all your money is tied up in stocks, bonds and traditional markets, you are vulnerable. Gold is one of the best ways to protect your retirement, no matter what happens, you own your gold.

"Folks, I am really excited right now because we're talking about something in this hour and I hope in the next hour as well that's at the heart of my concerns for the nation for the culture for the world. Something called education. I have in front of me, a brand new book called battle for the American mind, uprooting a century of miseducation, the authors are in the studio Pete hegseth and David Goodwin welcome. Thank you, Eric. Now, I know both of you sort of because but from different worlds, you're mister Fox and Friends on the weekends, or my confusing you with another Pete hegseth. No, you're right. You're right. And we met in multiple iterations. Here and there. But the problem is when you see somebody on TV, you don't remember, did I actually meet them? Or did I just see them on YouTube or something like that? But David Goodwin, you are the head of the association of classical Christian schools. Yes. Devotee and fan of classical Christian education and of homeschooling and I am thrilled to see you again. And thank you for writing a book because we need to talk about this. So where do we start? First of all, I think most people want to know, hey, how did Pete hegseth meet David Goodwin? How did you come to write a book together? Well, I met David Goodwin. You mentioned Fox and Friends. It happenstance to that. I was at a diner in rural North Carolina. Talking about the news of the day as we do on the morning show. And a family approached me two cute little girls in uniforms and a woman pulled me aside and said, you know, what do you know about classical Christian education? Because we were talking about it. And we got to talk in and she said, you got to meet this guy, David Goodwin, and she put us in touch. And I had kids that had been in classical questions so I was familiar with it, but I didn't understand the larger movement. And we just got to know each other and he shared some early manuscripts that he was working on of research that he had done. And I kept reading it and saying, this is amazing. Everybody's got to know this. This is the key right here. And over months and then years, we kind of joined forces and swap notes, and then we decided to embark on a Fox nation film called miseducation of America, which is where, and then this book also came out of that project as well. So it is a genuine partnership of two people coming at the same issue with passion and David's David is the expert. He's the man. Well, I think as things unravel at the speed of light, people are waking up. And, you know, there's a famous scripture Romans 8 28. You don't have to believe in the Bible. Just pretend Ben Franklin said it. It says all things work together for good for those that love the lord and are called according to his purposes. In other words, even when things are in a nightmare where you have cultural Marxism being shoved down our throats and all that, the good news for us in America is that it's waking people up who otherwise would have remained asleep. They're thinking, wait, wait, what? You're teaching my kids what I had no idea. Because, you know, in 1975, when I was in fourth grade, it was not, so this is good. And then of course, people want to know, all right, now what do we do? Now where do we send our kids? We know we're not setting them to those schools unless we get on the board and fix that. So, but I do love the idea that in this book, you tell us how we got here. So let's start, I mean, do we go to John Dewey? Do we go before John Dewey? How did we get to a point? Let me just say this. In America, we're free. So we say, we're going to educate our kids. We're going to have a one room schoolhouse. I've got to plow the fields. My wife's got stuff to do. So we're going to hire a school teacher and we're going to get them to teach the kids in the neighborhood. And they're going to teach exactly what we want them to teach obviously. They're the experts, but we're not going to let them teach things that we think are wrong. And that's how we got public education quote unquote. When did that go.

Hegseth & Goodwin on the Battle for American Education

"Back folks, we're talking about education, American education. Remember that? It's the book is the battle for the American mind uprooting a century of miseducation, Pete hegseth and David Goodwin, the authors. Again, the good news is we're waking up to this. The good news is there are solutions that are still possible. But we are in a battle. I mean, the teachers unions, for example, we now know, are just leftists. They are just marxists. They don't even believe that we should have a say in what our kids learn. I mean, it's kind of like we skipped backwards to Mao's cultural revolution, and we're suddenly in China in 1965. And the parents are being demonized by their own children. I mean, it's like, you just didn't think this could happen in America. Not only did they not think parents should know, they think parents are the rubes over here who are poisoning their kids with yesterday's dogma and it's the job of the school to give the correct education to hide the gender transition that's going on at school from the very parent. This is a war. We chose that intentional. I mean, I guess I have a military background. It is a war for the future of our country of ideas of our faith of the things our country was founded on. And if we don't, but education has just been this secondary issue for too many people.

"Charlie. The archeological evidence for the gospel, the life, ministry, unfair death, burial and resurrection of Christ. It's amazing when you look into the archeological evidence for it from the inexplicable record of female witnesses to how close Matthew Mark Luke and John was written to actual events themselves to Jose Joseph as the extra biblical reinforcement just had to add that little fact in there to push back against the Harvard and Princeton lady. And I had to find that truth in the dark corner of the basement on dusty books inside an institution formerly founded as you pointed out to train Presbyterian ministers. That's where you had to search to find it. One other thing on these lead schools, though, I think many people in different parts different industries in our country are realizing they don't want a bunch of highly first very woke activists who think very highly of themselves and don't think they should have to work hard, often many of which are produced by these institutions. You can and not to mention the standards that have been reduced based on the attack they've made on the SAT at college board. I mean, they common core has turned into the SAT. They removed reasoning completely now it's just a test you can study for alongside all the other ways in which the engineer who goes to these schools. They product their creating has been so wildly diluted. There will be a point where the return on investment is far less worth it when you hire someone who they allowed in the gate of these institutions. So in closing here, again, it's Pete Sega success amazing book, battle for the American mind, action steps. You mentioned building new things, what else? What is the solution agenda for the American grassroots? Okay, the first thing and you're doing it and I'm doing it with this book is it's a word of the left raising awareness or getting rid of implicit bias that parents have toward their public schools. You have to understand the depth of the problem to get to a solution. And that's what is going to be ongoing and will continue doing that. Then as a former counterinsurgency instructor, I turn to what's the tactic that's going to work the most. First, it's tactical retreat. We retreat from the government schools because we can't win in that fight. And what's the form of warfare? Ideological warfare that's most effective when you have the have nots against the haves or the weak against the strong. It's insurgency. The Mao wrote about insurgency, we studied it in the military. It was very effective for insurgents in Iraq and Afghanistan. You have to your phase one is to identify your networks and your allies and start building robust networks and institutions. You don't pop your head up too high because you don't need to. You start building schools, you start exposing the corrupt nature of the educational regime and you start encouraging people to find an alternative. Once you've built enough of those schools and that capacity, then you really ramp up the awareness effort to the point where there's a flood. There's such a demand that it starts and then you start to build the ecosystem that supports it. New teachers colleges, additional curriculum, higher education that supports it. Ecosystem of everything else. And then you get into the policy realm, which is universal educational tax credits. The idea that the dollars follow the parents and they can go to government schools if you so choose or to vote vocational schools, parochial schools, Christian schools, whatever you want. That's how you break the back of the educational industrial complex. They believe they have a monopoly because they have a monopoly on the money right now. So we've been yelling about vouchers and school choice for years ineffectively as conservatives. We have to take the action first and not expect some policy to change it because if you can have a choice to go to just a little less folk school, that's not really a choice that's going to change the trajectory of our republic. So we lay it out in the book through 5 chapters. What these phases look like, what classical Christian education looks like. And other forms of education that are going to save the republic. The battle for the American mind by Pete hegseth, Pete, thank you for being so generous with your time. I encourage everyone to pick up a copy or two. You will learn a lot about how they were able to capture American education and how we can reclaim it. Also a small plug, the miseducation of America on Fox nation is terrific. It's great. I've heard so much feedback from people on it. So Pete, I'm sorry. You're making this season two. We're making another season and you're on the hook. I will be honored. Thank you, Pete so much. I'm so glad education has become kind of your primary crusade right now. I love it. Likewise. Thank you. Thank you so much for listening to everybody.

The Conservative Struggle to Think Generationally With Pete Hegseth

"Pete, I want to talk about an issue that conservatives have. You could call it temperamentally. You could just call it, as we are. We are not long-term thinkers. This is something that do we had though. This is what the German historicists believe in is long-term projects, the long march of the institutions. You argue in your art your book that we need to build new things, but we also have to think generationally. We just can't think for immediate gratification. Why do you think conservatives have difficulty grasping that? Do you think it's changing and what if it's not changed what would be required to turn that around? It is changing. I think our founders suffered from that. If you could fault them for one thing, it's making a bit of the assumption that the idea is that they landed upon that would be self perpetuated. They knew they would not, but that they would be effectively the default. And that has been, as we've seen our culture wars and political wars erode, I think we all felt like, well, at least the stop for the longest time, at least the fallback line is, you know, America is a good place. Capitalism is beneficial. And basic freedoms will be preserved. Now those are under siege. I think the wake-up call is indeed right now. There's absolutely no doubt about

"So Pete, I want to ask you about one of the things you mentioned, which is the unprecedented approach that the modern left is taking. It's very risky, and I think it actually presents great opportunity for those of us that love the country, which is they think they can get a citizenry to give them power while they say they hate the country they want to get power from. This is something that the Bolsheviks didn't even try to do, where I mean, for example, and saw linsky warned about this for leftist. He said, hey guys, if you're going to try to take over a country, burn the flag after you control everything. Don't try to do that while you're trying to get power, meaning the symbols matter and the pledge matters. And the national anthem matters and the statues matter. And if you try to go to war against those things, you might make it harder for you to be able to take over all of the mechanisms of power. The current left believes the opposite. They think they're going to be able to get more powerful by convincing people to hate themselves and hate their nation and hate their home. I think that presents an opportunity for those of us to actually say no, we love this place because I think deep down in our spirit is a yearning to actually be thankful for where you're from. What's your thoughts on that? I agree with you. We've been, however, we've been living off the fumes of that appreciation, truly instilled on the hearts and souls of young people through proper education. I mean, the residue that brought about make America great again, this guttural scream that all it really was is America is good and we should love her and appreciate her. Was basically built on the backs of an educational system that no longer exists. I think politically that continues to present opportunities. You're going to see it in 22, and I think you'll see it in 24, no doubt. But the reason they moved to the burning of those symbols or the rejection of those symbols by the way, they put many of those symbols in place in the first place as placeholders and we can get into the history, including the Pledge of Allegiance, which originally did not say under God and was written by a socialist to create allegiance to the state above allegiance to God. And they wrote openly about that. We revere the pledge and we should, because we reveal the founding ideals of this country, they wanted it to create to cast the eyes to the flag in front of the classroom instead of the cross, which had traditionally been at the front of the American classroom. So they used symbols until they don't need them anymore and then they disregard them. Politically, Democrats still get elected by feigning or shallowly showing appreciation for what this country represents because their old school Democrats there aren't many of them left. Culturally, they've moved beyond that and certainly in the

"With us right now is a great American patriot can't wait to dive deep into his book and why he wrote it and how we can fix these problems. It is Pete hegseth and he is the author of the fabulous book, battle for the American mind, uprooting a century of miseducation, Pete, welcome back to the program. Hey, Charlie, thanks for having me. Appreciate it. So tell us why did you write the book and we'll go from there? Well, I wrote the book for the same reason you've done what you've done for the last ten years of turning point. We are at a moment in this country where we are in completely unchartered territory. Our schools across the board, government schools, not just public, which should be known as government schools, but also elite schools, private schools, most Christian schools are teaching students to be self loathing activists who know nothing about God and who believe America is a evil place stolen land and only built on the backs of slaves. And as a result, it is an experiment that's never been tried. Keeping a country while educating its citizens to hate the very country, they live in and not believe that it represents anything good. If you look at the scope of the problem right now, it's utterly demoralizing. If you really, really take a look because COVID-19, as you know, gave us a glimpse inside the classroom. We call it inside the book the COVID 1619 moment. It was the moment parents finally got a look. And what they saw was not 1776. They saw 1619 and they saw gender pronouns and they saw critical race theory dressed up as diversity equity inclusion. And they were mortified because the assumption their biases were toward the belief that the public schools, they're just fine. Maybe there's some bias in there, but they're just fine. And they looked for alternatives. And Hemingway once wrote, things happen gradually, and then they happen suddenly. And what we're seeing is the sudden consolidation, and that's what parents

"Let's talk a minute about Marxism, right? Because I think I was always raised. It was an economic thing, right? It's like the haves, the have nots, but now we realize that it's a philosophy that basically divides people one way or the other. However, we can divide people and create resentment. And so now it's cultural Marxism. Now it says if I'm transgender or I'm lesbian or I'm a woman or I'm a whatever group I can identify with that can say we're oppressed and we're against our oppressors. So the names and categories have been changed, but it's the same context and it was brought in by the Frankfurt school. You mentioned gramsci, marcuse. These people in the 40s, whenever that was, they brought Marxist philosophy, which is atheist philosophy. It's not neutral. It's seriously atheist philosophy. They brought it in to the university's. And William F. Buckley, when he was at Yale in the late 40s, he saw this. Now, imagine in the late 40s, he writes a book called God and man at Yale, uncovering all this stuff. That was the late 40s. So by the time I was there in the 80s, political correctness had already swamped the campus or whatever. Now, of course, it's pure madness. But it's amazing to me that we're not teaching the evils of cultural Marxism. Most people don't know what the Frankfurt school is. And most people don't even know how to react because they don't know, they still don't know what's happening. One of the things that Pete and I were both surprised at is that, you know, I did my colonel of research in the early part of this and of course I know classical Christian education. Pete did most of the work in the 20th century. And the puzzle pieces fit together like they were hand in glove to the mixed metaphors of it. But it was unbelievable. Dewey's at Columbia until about 1930, the Frankfurt school shows up in about 34, 35, you see this develop, you see the cultural revolution, talk about cultural Marxism in Maoist China in the late 1960s where he realizes that you can not make economic Marxism work without cultural revolution. And it just the whole thing flows together. And I think what the book does is provide a sweeping narrative of the 20th century to show us how we got where we are and then, of course, it prescribes a solution. We try to simplify it. You know, it goes from western Christian paideia to the American progressive paideia, which lasts all the way up to basically 9 11. So think of the collective response we were able to have at 9 11, even with a progressive paid dance. Yes. Now we're about to have a culturally Marxist. Yes. What in the world could we respond to? We're internally an extra. We're going to go to another break. We've got plenty more don't go away. You run out your dancing and you never see a show. Folks, before we continue the conversation today, in our two, we've got way more with Pete hegseth and David Goodwin and then we're going to be talking from Zürich Switzerland. He is the head of CSI international talking about what is happening in Ukraine with refugees. I just love to talk to people who are directly involved. It's a profoundly Christian organization. Yeah, and you can go to metaxas talk dot com right now and you can donate on taxes. There's a lot of stuff you ought to do. I hate to put it on you, man. Yeah. Hey man, but go to metaxas talk dot com and you'll see the banner. I also want to say I have a piece at the stream. I've been getting emails from a lot of people because I read something in Christianity today some weeks ago that so shocked me. It's no different. I'm writing about this in my next book letter to the American church. How the comparison of where many in the church are in America today to where many were in the churchyard in Germany in the 30s, it is horrifying the parallels are astonishing and in this article in Christianity today, Russell Moore essentially does what the German pastors did in the 30s. Before they had any clue where it was leading, but they're sort of demonizing a certain group or certain groups. They're the problem and we all know they're the problem. And the parallel is chilling. So I write about it in my upcoming book, but I write about it. You can read about it at stream dot org. It's an article that I wrote rebutting what Russell Moore wrote in the pages of Christianity today. I still can't believe he wrote it. I can't believe they published it. What I wrote about it, as I said, a lot of people are emailing me and thanking me for writing it. But I could not not write it. It was just, I said, I have to respond. A couple of other quick bits of business do not forget. Socrates in the city, May 31st, if you know anybody who can get to New York City on May 31st, Tuesday night, union league club, we haven't done this in a long time.

"Tell me Eric, why is relief factors so successful at lowering or eliminating pain? I'm often asked that question, the owners of relief factor tell me they believe our bodies were designed to heal. That's right, designed to heal, and I agree with them. So the doctors who formulated relief factor for them selected the four best ingredients, yes, 100% drug free ingredients, each helps your body deal with inflammation. Each of the four ingredients deals with inflammation from a different metabolic pathway, and that right there approaching from four different angles may be why so many people find such wonderful relief. So if you've got back pain, shoulder neck hip knee or foot pain from exercise or just getting older, you should order the three week quick start discounted to only 1995 to see if it will work for you. It works for me. It has for about 70% of the half a million people who've tried it and have ordered more, go to relief factor dot com or call 800 for relief to find out about this offer, feel the difference. Somewhere. On the sea hey folks final segment talking with Pete hegseth and David Goodwin battle for the American mind uprooting a century of miseducation. So Pete the headline here is that you're not just an empty talking head on Fox and Friends. It's not like they say he's smart. He could do things. It gives me such joy to know that you not only get this stuff, but that you've joined with David and written a book about it and that you're using your platform to get the word out to the American people about what is happening. I think part of this has been as a father, a journey of discovery myself as a parent. And that's how we've treated this book and how we treated the film series at Fox nation as well. David, I call him my Sherpa, you know? He's leading me through and I'm discovering in real time very much like most of our viewers are right now. Oh my goodness. I knew there were some problems. I didn't realize it was this big. And hopefully, because I've only more recently made some of the choices to get my kids intentionally into some of these schools. So all of us are behind the curve. And I feel this ticking clock in my mind of every moment they're not in that education. I'm not doing what I should be doing for them. Yes, I need to be doing it in the home. Yes, I need to be doing it in church, but to not have the third part of that of the classroom reinforcing the things that I believe. I'm just losing time. And so I would urge the same thing to parents, do the research, take a look, it's not enough to feel like your principles are nice guy or you've got two members of the school board. That's wonderful. We should fight those places. I don't think we should give up any space. But right now we're in a knife fight. We're in the kill zone. And they've got us surrounded and you've got to act when you're in that spot. Well, I got to tell you, that's a fact what you just said. And there are lots of people that don't get that. They don't have the urgency. They think, oh, you're being hot heads. How I wish that were true. How I wish that were true. I mean, look, Chesterton was talking about this stuff in the 1920s. Some people saw this and they've been talking about it. C. S. Lewis was talking about it in the abolition of man. This has been going on and on and on and on. And all along the bad guys will smile at you and say, we want to help your kids in the new world here that we're creating. To me, it's the level of urgency that needs to be communicated. And I know you do in the book that what is the website again for the classical Christian classical Christian dot org. Classical Christian dot org. There's just no way around it. You don't have America without these ideas. In other words, the west, the Greek tradition, the geo Christian tradition, come together to make real freedom possible and people died for this. And when you remove those things, it's a Brave New World. It's China. It's def camps. But people don't believe that. They don't seem to understand and how close we are, basically. Well, before, I mean, we tend to see what's closest to us, obviously. If we go back in history before Christ and before this form of thought and education, it was an ugly place. It was pretty brutal. People thought we did not want to go back there. People don't realize. I mean, look, because my mother grew up in East Germany and my father came from Greece where the communists were trying to take over. They raised me to love this country and to understand how horribly bad it can be. But I think most Americans think like, how bad could it get? Maybe the economy will down, it would go down or gas prices will go up to ten bucks. So okay. But you know what? It can't get that bad. They don't seem to understand that when you pull these things out, it becomes a satanic nightmare. They just won't believe it until they see it. But I think people are beginning to see it. I think American exceptionalism comes with a dose of feeling of America inevitability. And as a result, people say, well, yeah, it's bad, but there's no way we can be that. And things will be okay. And my kid is going to be just fine. And so there is a complacency inside all of us. And when you start to realize the depth of the problem, you realize how small you are, which is a wonderful recognition actually, but that means you can affect something. You can choose where your kids go to school. You can choose where your grandkids go to school. And that's the beautiful message of the.

"Is the book uprooting a century of miseducation, David Goodwin has written it with Pete hegseth in that David. You're the head of the association of classical Christian schools. So you're like a brainy guy. Pete is just like a talking hit on Fox and Friends. We know he has nothing to say if it's not on a teleprompter. Pete, how did you get involved in this? I've always learned to join forces with people smarter than me. That's the key. Andy's humble, which makes me hate him even more. You went to Princeton, you went to the Harvard Kennedy school of government. What did you major in at Princeton? Politics. You did. I did. Political philosophy. As sort of a degree of that. But I'll tell you what I've learned in this project, how much I didn't learn. I didn't learn any of this stuff. My kids are in classical Christian schools and all I say every day is, why can't I go back to school and learn these things? Okay, you're singing my song. I have said this over and over in the last couple of decades. I learned something. I wrote a book called if you can keep it Franklin's famous line. And because of Oz Guinness, whose book I had read, I understood things, and all I could think of is how did I not get this? I didn't get any of this. So you obviously going through this elite schools, which like, Yale, they don't teach you this stuff. They teach you John Dewey on steroids, I guess. And they teach you now the latest manifestations of the Frankfurt school and critical theory, which is now we now see as critical race theory, and we talk about every day. But it was just the water in which we swam. I took social studies. We all took social studies who invented social studies. Yeah, why is it not history? Why is it social studies? We can't get into that. We can't get into that, don't talk about it. I didn't know where that all came from. David had done the research and then I was able to lay it upon the environment in which we live right now and realize we all got a progressive education. Yeah. Almost everyone watching guaranteed. Right. Got a progressive education that was started by atheist advanced by marxists who had their own agenda and it all happened subtly, and a lot of us think we aren't infected, but we are. And so you have to dig under the ruins of what used to exist. And that's what David did in this project. This is the way education our founders were educated, how free people and republics actually perpetuate themselves. Why don't we do that? As opposed to what we're doing now. I have to say to people need to understand that if you don't get this stuff, if you don't really understand this, you really can't combat it because you don't know. This is why I think so many people are cowards. I mean, so many Republicans are cowards. They don't really understand it. And they're kind of afraid of being questioned. So they just go like, well, what do I need to say so that you don't come after me? I'll just say whatever you want me to say. Because they don't really understand what is happening. And so what you're talking about, when you talk about John Dewey signing the atheist humanist manifesto, we need to understand there's a worldview, it is an atheistic worldview. It is at war with the biblical worldview. And we couldn't have America without the biblical world. You don't need to be a Christian to be an American, but you need to understand historically speaking, you do not get American style self government without the Israel covenant of the Old Testament or whatever. It's just not you can talk all day you want about the Iroquois system and people kind of throw this stuff out there. But it's historical fact, isn't it? I mean, you can't really argue with it, but you can ignore it. Well, you know, in the book we talk about the liberal arts and how they were originally developed by the Greeks to enable a republic or a democracy. And we, in this day and age, we think it's just a natural thing. One of the things Pete talks about in the book is his time, pizza, a veteran. And he talks about his time in Afghanistan and the differences that you see in the paideia of the different parts of the world. And we're taking for granted this critical thing that's liberal art tradition. Where people can are trained to think for themselves. That's the independently minded. That's the key. And let's be.

"Site. And then the churches, as you talked about, Eric, did the work for the left at that very same time, which is a huge section that David wrote about by splitting itself. I mean, today's evangelical movement has basically given up the idea of education at all, and that became Sunday school. And the progressives, we have a couple of quotes in here, openly mock it. They say, what can one hour of theistic training on Sunday do against 5 days of progressive training during the week? They knew once the God was pushed out. They had the advantage, which is why the name of this book was almost the 16,000 hour war, because it's 16,000 hours of public instruction that your kids get from K through 12 when that's nowhere near the amount of time they would spend inside a church or a church group or with religious instruction. I mean, this is jaw dropping stuff. This is absolutely jaw dropping stuff. I marvel at the genius of the wicked. In other words, the idea that they thought this through and that they were so dedicated to getting God out. And again, there are many people today. They think they're conservatives. Don't understand that without virtue and faith, you can't have freedom. You can talk all you want about the free market and we believe in free. Your version of freedom is like Dewey's version of patriotism. Ultimately, it's hollow, and it will, there's nothing there. And you're going to find out, you will find out if you don't understand that at the heart of what you think you value has to be some kind of virtue. You're going to have to teach virtue and virtue comes from faith in something larger and whatever. But if you're teaching nihilism, you can't do that. So it's this sleight of hand. And the proof will be in the pudding. We're talking to the authors of battle for the American mind, Pete hegseth, and David Goodwin don't go away.

"I didn't see you. Folks, I am really excited right now because we're talking about something in this hour and I hope in the next hour as well that's at the heart of my concerns for the nation for the culture for the world. Something called education. I have in front of me, a brand new book called battle for the American mind, uprooting a century of miseducation, the authors are in the studio Pete hegseth and David Goodwin welcome. Thank you, Eric. Now I know both of you sort of because but from different worlds, you're mister Fox and Friends on the weekends or my confusing you with another Pete hegseth. No, you're right, you're right. And we met in multiple iterations. Here and there. But the problem is when you see somebody on TV, you don't remember, did I actually meet them or did I just saw that see them on YouTube or something like that? But David Goodwin, you are the head of the association of classical Christian schools. Yes. Devotee and fan of classical Christian education and of homeschooling and I am thrilled to see you again. And thank you for writing a book because we need to talk about this. So where do we start? First of all, I think most people want to know, hey, how did Pete hegseth meet David Goodwin? How did you come to write a book together? Well, I met David Goodwin. You mentioned Fox and Friends. It happenstance to that. I was at a diner in rural North Carolina talking about the news of the day as we do on the morning show. And a family approached me too cute little girls in uniforms and a woman pulled me aside and said, you know, what do you know about classical Christian education? Because we were talking about it. And we got to talk in and she said, you got to meet this guy, David Goodwin, and she put us in touch. And I had kids that had been in classical questions, so I was familiar with it, but I didn't understand the larger movement. And we just got to know each other and he shared some early manuscripts that he was working on of research that he had done. And I kept reading it and saying, this is amazing. Everybody's got to know this. This is the key right here. And over months and then years, we kind of joined forces and swap notes, and then we decided to embark on a Fox nation film called miseducation of America, which is where, and then this book also came out of that project as well. So it is a genuine partnership of two people coming at the same issue with passion and David's David is the expert. He's the man. Well, I think as things unravel at the speed of light, people are waking up. And, you know, there's a famous scripture Romans 8 28. You don't have to believe in the Bible. Just pretend Ben Franklin said it. It says all things work together for good for those that love the lord and are called according to his purposes. In other words, even when things are in a nightmare where you have cultural Marxism being shoved down our throats and all that, the good news for us in America is that it's waking people up who otherwise would have remained asleep. They're thinking, wait, wait, wait, what? You're teaching my kids what? I had no idea. Because, you know, in 1975, when I was in fourth grade, it was not, so this is good. And then of course, people want to know, all right, now what do we do? Now where do we send our kids? We know we're not setting them to those schools unless we get on the board and fix that. So, but I do love the idea that in this book, you tell us how we got here. So let's start, I mean, do we go to John Dewey? Do we go before John Dewey? How did we get to a point? Let me just say this. In America, we're free. So we say, we're going to educate our kids. We're going to have a one room schoolhouse. I've got to plow the fields. My wife's got stuff to do. So we're going to hire a school teacher and we're going to get them to teach the kids in the neighborhood. And they're going to teach exactly what we want them to teach obviously. They're the experts, but we're not going to let them teach things that we think are wrong. And that's how we got public education quote unquote. When did that go crazy and.

"Right. And that's just a lot. Once they're out of the womb, let's be very clear. Only then, before that, your trash. Yeah. If I could add though, I mean, you could define because you could say it properly. And the phrase paideia, paida the inculturation, the development, the vision of a good life for the youngest, right? So we assume college education. What the left focus on was four, 5, 6, 7, 8 years old because that is when who you are is imprinted on your heart. And if you can control that, that's why they're so obsessed with early childhood education as well. Get them in the hands of Uncle Sam as early as possible. They realize that's the key. That's where paideia is formed. That's where the trajectory of their life is formed. So while we were focused on the lunacy of higher education, it's not lost on you, closing closing of the American mind is similar to we've been focusing on K through 12 for higher education for a very long time. When the real work of progressives was to get into our youngest of classrooms, because that's where the real transformation. And what they said they were doing was industrial education, as you pointed out earlier, which is what? The pursuit of a good life is tied to material goods. Right. We'll get you job. We'll get you some bread, some vodka. You can live in the center block building, shut up. We don't want to know what you think. I mean, that's communism, except it's wrapped in a different paint. Because the marriage, the family, kids, the real joys in life were cultivating a young generation that just doesn't appreciate the real joy. The good, the true and the beautiful. You know, you keep hearing that phrase. And those are the kinds of things, look, we know that the whole 20th century was a war on the good the true and the beautiful. Art got ugly. What happened? What happened to the beautiful rhyming poetry of longfellow patriotic and beautiful and whatever. Somebody, you know, and this is when I was at Yale, I learned this, right? If it rhymes, Norman Rockwell, like all that stuff is for the rubes in Middle America. The elites, we're going to read, I don't know, Wallace Stevens or whoever we're going to we're going to, we're going to read this stuff that nobody wants to read and we're going to go to the museums and look at stuff that nobody would say is beautiful. And we're going to persuade ourselves that this is the way the elites. This is the way we want to go. And it's the exact opposite of what made this country great. And by the grace of God, we are still able to even talk about this. It's not over yet, but we're in a battle. It's not over yet, but I'd say the darkest time in American education was the 1970s when classical Christian education was completely buried. There were no classical Christian schools at all. The progressive paide had completely taken over. Today you could enter over almost 500 over 400 classical Christian schools in almost every state across the country, a huge homeschooling network of millions. They tried to outlaw homeschooling, as you know. I mean, there was a big effort to end all Christian education on private education. They didn't succeed, though. So we have our chance in light of this new moment where we realized what the marxists have done. We just have to get at it. Now, if somebody says, I'd like to know if there's a classical Christian school around here. Is there a website they might go to? Classical Christian dot org. Classical Christian dot org. If you can spell that, you didn't go to a classical Christian school. Classical Christian dot org, you know, I just can't say enough about how centrally important this is. And you're right, Pete, when you say that, I mean, we know that in Europe, Europe is always a few steps ahead in terms of the lunacy. And they are persecuting Christians who want to educate their kids and whatever, they are openly persecuting them. Of course, it's come here now, but enough people are waking up. I hope people listening to this program are waking up and will send this video to their friends and understand that we're in a war. We're going to keep talking about battle for the American mind with Pete hegseth and David.
