Ep 724 | Rand Paul CALLS OUT Rachel Levine's Stance on Child Sex Change | Guests: Stu Burguiere & Pat Gray

"Today senator rand paul presses. Dr rachel levine. On capitol hill and Progressives threatened to abandon covid nineteen relief if it doesn't include minimum wage hike. You may be wondering what one has to do with the other. Well so are we. We've got a lot to get into and it starts right now. Welcome to the news and why it matters. I'm sarah gonzales reporting to you from the arctic tundra because whenever glen just leaves the set it is in fact freezing in this building We're going to try our best to get through this program without actually freezing to death. I'm joined by schubert of soon as america. I had my heat ninety in my car. The hallway here to warm up from the radio show. I just got warm and then we can come into tack great background. It's cold outside to texas cool time not like cold today jackets. I'm from montana. we All right so we've got a lot to get into I know you guys were thinking before you walked onto the set that you really wanted to talk about the issue of Genital mutilation and finally. Finally we're going to discuss it. I got a six part documentary coming out on. I can't wait to catch that. Senator rand paul Today pressed joe biden's nominee for assistant secretary of health On whether the government should override appearance consent to allow a gender dysphoric child to begin taking or pursue sex-change therapy. Now this comes because as we know. Dr rachel levine. Who is from pennsylvania. who is of course a transgender woman so a biological man is the nominee and in the past. She's even tweeted about it. If you go to her social media She has a tweet in which she expresses support for puberty blockers for children. Young children being able to change their gender And not just like hey. I think i am a girl or boy but taking these medications In order to do so so rand. Paul went back and forth with the doctor did not get a straight answer from her and but kept going in this club. Watch for most of our history. We believe that minors don't have full rights. The parents need to be involved. So i'm alarmed that you won't say with certainty that minors should not have the ability to make the decision to take hormones. it will affect them for the rest of their life. Will you make a more firm decision on whether or not minor should be involved. In these decisions senator. Transgender medicine is a very complex in nuance field. And if confirmed to the position of assistant secretary of health. I was certainly be pleased to come to your office and talk with you and your staff about the standards of care and the complexity of this field. Let it go into the record that the witness refused to answer the question. The question is a very specific one. Should minors be making these momentous decisions. For most of the history of medicine we wouldn't let you have cut sewn up in the er but you're willing to let a minor take things that prevent their puberty and you think they get that back you give a woman testosterone enough that she grows a beard. You think she's going to go back looking like a woman. When you stop the testosterone you have permanently changed them. Infertility is another problem. None of these drugs have been approved for this. They're all being used off label. I find it ironic that the left that went nuts over hydroxy corcoran being used. Possibly for covid are not alarm that these hormones are being used off label. There's no long term studies. We don't know what happens to them. We do know that there are dozens and dozens of people vinter. This who regret this happened in a permanent change happened to them. And you know if you've ever been around children fourteen year old can't make this decision in the genesis for your clinic. In england ten percent of the kids are between the ages. Three and ten. We should be outraged. That someone's talking to a three year old about changing their sex senator So a tense. Moment between senator rand. Paul and dr. Rachel levine beautiful. You ever seen a more beautiful woman an incredibly beautiful once alabama because her arms okay the arms but in general the mo the perfect woman would-be. Rachel levine with michelle obama's. I think we could agree on that. So i mean it's uncomfortable to watch and it's like all right but i mean this is one of joe biden's nominees for a pretty important position i get. It's assistant secretary but if we have people in charge of the department of health and human services who think that three year olds should be able to consent to sex changes. That's a big deal. Knowledge that the only reason this person has this job. Because of the the their transgendered and they wanted to set this new. I step on transgender rights. Or whatever there's no reason to say in fact we've seen terrible handling of health issues in pennsylvania throughout the last year. you can. I just say this is the same person who enacted the same policies similar to andrew cuomo and removed her own mother from the nursing home so that her mother wouldn't be affected. I mean this is a bad nominee no matter what they look like or no matter what they're saying in this particular hearing when you go to this point. It's there's something that like we do when we argue points where we take the most extreme crazy thing to set a sort of like baseline of the argument and for years and years and years. I mean there was always a back and forth from the left and the right about gay rights and gay marriage and transgender rights. Or whatever but you should be able to say look. A three-year-old is the the most extreme example. He us should not be making the decision about changing their gender. Which by the way you can actually do. You can have surgeries and take hormones to simulate change of gender but you can't actually changed under gender but there's this idea that like a three year old can make a decision like this when we all know a three year old literally make any decision on their own. I mean there's not that's not what they do are three ten year. Old is the same thing i mean. I have a nine year old and like he's not like he would be capable of making a decision like this that would alter entire life. That's what parents are for. So you know it is. It's a remarkable that this you know. Rachel levine will probably sail through with every democratic vote because of her identity the the fact that she won't answer he won't answer. Whatever will not answer this very simple question like come up right kids we're talking about. I understand they're all this other stuff. We're talking about kids. Should they be making their their decision without parental notice. We're like so far down the extreme thing and they won't even say that it's like when you ask a liberal like what about abortion one second before birth and they won't say no. Yeah right well because this is a. This is a a position that you hold to be morally superior. Why not say it at. I have kids at every h up to thirty eight years. I wouldn't allow my thirty eight year old to make that decision no capable capable of making then it'd be like no. You can't make that decision and help out status okay. Well i mean it. It's kind of what not at thirty eight but it's kind of what parents are designed to do stupid pointed out. There's a reason why we are the ones who are in charge of our children's lives until they are at least eighteen. It's the most absurd thing. Maybe that i've ever heard because we all know the as stu said you. They're they're incapable of that. They're incapable when they're teenagers of making decisions like that. They really are. I mean there are there but stupid until they're like twenty five years old and even then even then it's a little iffy. Yeah even then. They shouldn't vote till they're thirty. Five be president. You can't vote for president right right. That's just ridiculous. Now look. I mean this goes on. The back of police came out yesterday which talked about The breakouts of of you know how many people are gay. How many people are lesbian. How many people are bisexual transgendered and it did it say how many people are spirit did not. They didn't even ask that what jimmy was how. I thought it was hateful very offended. There's no plus q it was just. That's it was really bad. They lost both cues on. I'll so anyway the poll. I don't have it in front in front of intersex. They had of now. Why it didn't have that either. They did have pan sexual. They asked how many people but it was printed out the poll and it was on the outside of the paper. I don't know what the result was is. It was like eighty percent or pan sexual. But i don't know it was outside of paper. I printed it landscape on on on the trip by mistake. Which is a problem. it's my it's michael naipaul really. Is the pants actual folks who happened to be tuning it he apologizes. I apologize for everything. I've ever said patent including the about to say which is they found. The poll found that of all this. Zoom zoom are generation z. Whatever they're calling zuma's which is just awful they. They found that eleven point. Eight percent of them were bisexual. Levin point eight percents. there's one point. Eight percent was Was transgendered it was like one point. Six percent were lesbian. Two percent more gay so now. We're up to to believe right. Now that there are more transgendered people in this upcoming group then there than there are certainly bisexual but even lesbians like there's just disappearing apparently and when you look through the the age ranges what you see is per for bisexual. It's like eleven percent of generation z. And it's slowly steps down the percentage until you get to older people and it's like two percent of older people and it's like well if you're gonna go by the sort of lady gaga thesis here that everyone's born this way. Why are those percentages so different. I think there is a fair argument to say that. It's become more acceptable as we've gone through time in like more acceptable to come out of the closet but the people we're talking about are alive like they're like forty years old now in a period where they're alive and they could come out of the closet and they could certainly answer a an anonymous poll accurately at this point in their lives. But like we're it just like there's another part that is it's eleven point eight percent of the population generation z. Is bisexual when you look at that. They broke it out a little bit and they said well you're bisexual. Are you having a opposite sex relationship or same sex relationship pretty interesting question. I thought they did a good job with this full. What they found is that it was like ten times as many people in the bisexual group were having opposite sex relationships. That's just straight right like. I think there's this thing that you can do and i've heard people say this by their right there straight but they're trendy trade which is legitimately this thing that is like somewhat tied to politics and to be open minded where people will say to you look. I don't care what they are all. Whoever i fall in love with i fall in love with and consider that to be bisexual. They just always happened to fall in love with someone of the opposite sex. I mean that's always just been straight these definitions all the time. It's hard to track these numbers but it's a fascinating thing to watch in that like you know what is what is causing that. It is a dramatic change. We're talking four five and six times as many people that are young. Are doing these things. And i don't think it's a coincidence that they've grown up in the era of these things saith the good the bad you can toss that around all night but like the idea that this is just some like you wake up when you're zero years old and you are this thing forever is at times probably false. Some people decide to go different ways with it overtime. So it's a tough discussion because you know it's the type of thing they get you thrown off social media. Luckily i'm saying on your show. So i don't care what happens. That's not forget it was it five years ago the ama. Maybe it was ten years ago. I don't think it was even ten years ago. The ama said the trans gender ism was a mental disorder. Here can music awards. Yes why would this. I don't know what they were doing in a weird segment. It's really weird. It's really weird. Strange i mean it just what business i don't know i don't know it's weird. But now but now they've erased that yes and it says if i believe if i remember correctly you remember how long it's been. I think it was. It was finance go. American patients said it was a mental disorder. Now all of a sudden. You're perfectly healthy now. You have the mental disorder if you don't accept that to be the reality. Yeah i mean. We talked to ryan anderson From the heritage foundation among other places. And he will. He wrote a book in two thousand eighteen. Those cult when harry turned into sally and it was about transgenderism. And just the science on it and like you know. Obviously he's a conservative. So it kind of comes off as like you know. This probably isn't a good thing. And i mean the science you know like look. This is widely supported over time. That what what people believe that that. Are you know. We've talked to several doctors about this. That you know the research basically shows that trans people who are transgender who have who have gender issues or early in life If they don't have the transition they wind up usually took being gay and if they If they do have if they don't have the transition the overwhelming majority of them are thankful they didn't have the transition and that's just you know just these are just numbers in various studies have shown the same types of things. So like your legitimately taking the. You're you're replacing the g. in the l. With the tea. And i just feel like it's one thing if you want to do that as an adult you can make mind up. I again like i. It's it's a very complicated situation. There is some truth to that. But it's not complicated when your kid. It's would make terrible decisions all the time. My children would eat skittles all day. That's all they would eat skills That's not a healthy Healthy to eat. And i'm not a healthy person. Either and i can even know that. It's all skittles all the time. It's not a healthy way to eat. You need parents need to be there to be able to guide them through especially life changing decisions. You make when you're young. It's insanity and in a way rand paul's giving her at out here by saying here's the lowest hurdle to clear kid young kid. Does it tell their parents about it. Can they do. It all helped your office and i'll talk to you about it later. The car i mean. I i don't know how you even how can even have a conversation with somebody who that it's it's it's so crazily over the line that i think you'd pull that question and you'd find ninety. Five percent of americans would be like okay. Wait a minute. That's two four down All right we've got more to come. I wanna thank our sponsor built bar so Which i think pat ni- can speak about do is like this. Vegetarian thing that he has going on the deliciousness. But i bet you hear from your wife a lot. Say no one at this table. Spent more on. Bill barr in fact in this audience. So no one in this country than my household. So i can say a lot about it. There's about fourteen thousand of them in my fridge and all times. Yeah my wife your role of her at the location of bill. That's how much our family bill barth pretty. So yeah i. It's almost like oh well she could try. Because there's gelatin which there but like it's a you know it is one of those things where like all these flavors come out. I'm like gosh. I really just want to take god you i mean i i would love to tell you. You're not missing out but you're actually missing out. You should feel really bad about it. Their low calorie low sugar They're really good for keto diets. If you're on kito diet like i am if you have some weight to lose or maybe you don't like the fact that you're going to your you know your home For covert protocols. You're working from home in you're going to your pantry every ten seconds and eating all of this food that you're embarrassed about leader bill maher here. Not that i'm talking about anyone at this table also had weight to lose. Why do you would you bring that up with us. I don't understand the bill. Barr its way tastier than whatever protein bar you're eating now and it's covered in a hundred percent chocolate and it's actually like one hundred thirty calories. A lot of them aren't they. Range like one eighty depending on what you buy delicious high protein. You gotta get it in your pantry. So that you're snacking on something healthy you can go to built bar dot com. Use promo code news twenty. You'll get twenty percent off of your next order. They've got the chocolate Cookie dough chunk right now. I'm telling you you're not gonna want to miss out on this. It is built to bar dot com. Use promo code news. Twenty back in a minute Guys we finally We have solved discrimination hasbro the company. That of course makes Mr potato head. They have decided to give the toy a makeover. It is now going to be gender neutral and they're dropping the mr they're just gonna go with potato head. The change will appear on boxes this year Thankfully i mean we've got a lot of issues plaguing our society right now. But i think none as important as making sure that no toys have genders so i want to get your thoughts on this gentleman but just i just really quickly I have a couple of things that i would like to to say about this number one being. I think it's really root of them. That brian stelter obviously identifies as male. I don't think it's right of them to just assume that he wants to be gender neutral. Now i just think that that's kind of going against the discrimination that they're saying that they're solving Number two mrs potato head. I think matt might have something to say about this because as we know there wasn't mr and there wasn't mrs although i do think that they already were interchangeable. Okay so i think that was already the solution. And i don't want to know what happens in their bedroom but they had the ability to interchange that now all of a sudden mrs potato head is left in the win i guess and also the fact that it's a fucking potato geez. Well it's not even actually take with a toy potato. Technically right thank you. I do think that you did You know look it was not even a real potato which makes me very upset about it. So your problem if that you can't you can't you can't eat. I've tried. you cannot mr mrs or just potato head. you can't do. You'll choke. I mean i i. It's i'm joking sort of but it's completely ridiculous. Kids are not gonna be able to play with toys anymore. Not just like well is this. Is this girl or is this a boy while we we can't really say i know it's stupid. Look i mean and of course they're gonna still have. I would assume the attachments that make them look like a boy or a girl like this just seems like hasbro wants to save on printing packages. Like you're just going to give one data you can make it a man or a woman however you want right like i. It's pretty silly. I will say that there are other priorities though. It's i know you're kind of joking by saying that. Like you know making sure potatoes have no genders is not really the top issue the top issue is taking all black people off of packaging. That should be. We've got cream of wheat. We've got an trauma we've got uncle. Ben i want no african americans on packaging. I think that's the top goal of our country. If not i mean. I know the we gotta get the names off jeep cherokee. We get off the car. Do you think that what we should do is just named all of our products after boring white people so you have the jeep stew and then the chevy pat right and a little too. You've got a little bit too much flavor here spicy spice a little spicy. Sarah will work. I mean sarah seems like a white name. Yes i think you're white you're white passing. So maybe maybe. Maybe i've innocence. Just it's absolutely ridiculous win. The will we get barbara bush off the quaker oats package that will that happen would be soon or i mean are you. I mean i think that's okay so this goes along with another story right now. a proposed bill would assess thousand dollar fines to retailers who don't create a gender neutral space in their toy sections so in their toys and a section they have to have a gender neutral section literally talking about finding businesses for not going along with this nonsense. And i just can't breaking anymore there. I got myself. I can't do it. i mean. Mary have to bleep it out. You might as well just us Yeah i mean i. It's so hard. I think the thing i keep falling back on and i don't know maybe i don't care about this nation i don't about what's going on here but like i don't have enough energy to care about all these things like i legitimately care that your kids are growing up in a society where you're trying to do all of these things and you're on is is supposed to feel just feel bad that he's a man also white so he's got those things against him. I think what i'm saying. I'm looking at it from their perspective for a minute though right like can you imagine if every day you woke up and looked around the toyo for something you might find defensive if you look around where pancakes and rice or sold to see what character is a is on the front to see if you should be offended that day and then to go on social media post post and post from write letters and like you've accomplished nothing like the fact that enter my is not on that pancake box accomplishes zilch except for the fact that african americans can't buy their favorite pancakes. Anymore i mean in a racist black people. If that's what you're trying to do and it does seem like. I mean it does seem like that's part of it doesn't it really does seem like you know when when when a native americans come to you and say you know what ninety percent of us are not offended by the washington redskins name we think it honors us and then just take the name away like what have you done. You're you're you are white splitting essentially like a win. African americans or native americans or whoever should be offended and that should be what people are offended about japan but apparently apparently not then in california was california where they're going to find stores for separating toys in boys and girls sexual. You're going to find a store if they put toys in different sections dollars are you. I mean the insanity is just so out of control money. If you played until currency i'd be okay with it would be like the line because i mean if you're a retail store you've got people shopping in and out of the isles. What if someone has a toy and takes it to a different aisle and leaves it there we interest but then does the store then have to pay that fine. I mean how is this even police. Who's enforcing this. And this is all being taught in our schools to our kids. You know you mentioned the we. Were about rachel levine and the whole transgender thing. This is all being taught in the schools. Kids can go and get this stuff done. And i will say this just to expand on on on all of our previous conversations. Many over many of these years. I keep coming back to this. It's like we sit here. And we had these conversations about how inane this is and how poisonous it is a so much of it and the fact that is being talked directly to our kids at school and then we will go on the next break say opened up the schools. And it's like well. Maybe we should keep a close. The schools closed it was against a private school or any other place. Maybe under a bridge to be taught by lie homeless vagrants instead of these people. Because what they're doing is really dramatic less wimmer. Yes i i understand taking my tax money. Open up the dam schools. Yeah oh totally i mean. Look they should be open. It's a separate argument. But i think that yes. I agree conservatives. I think are missing a great opportunity here with these schools being closed and with people being so frustrated about them being close to say. Hey there are better options because not only. Are you pissed off at your schools. Not open and your kids are with you because they have to stay home and have nowhere to go but in addition to that when they go to the school they're going to teach them poison. Yeah so i mean we really need to make a. I think a bigger issue about trying to figure out ways even for people who can't afford it will be able to take their kids out of these schools. Learn from seeing people occasionally. Yes yeah homeschool. Year children i did. I'm really really busy. And i still find time You gotta find the right curriculum. I can promise you it is out there all right. We've got more to come. I want to thank our sponsor bambi if you are a small business owner entrepreneur You probably know this already but hr issues can just like totally decimate your entire business You've got wrongful termination suits that you could be liable for.

I'm telling you guys it is worth it be a. m. b. e. dot com slash matters back in a minute progressive. Legislators like our good friend. Good friend of the program alexandria. Ocasio cortez threatened to bolt on the covid. Nineteen relief bill if it does not include a hike in the minimum wage said that They're going to abandon it if they do not Pass through with reconciliation and the fifteen dollar minimum wage attached and She's taking a stand against it she. It's a small technicality. But i do think we've got every tool in our toolbox here Whether it is reconciliation whether it is ultimately reforming the filibuster. We're going to need to deliver on our promise to raise the wage for twenty seven million americans. It's i mean it's good but that the democrats aren't playing games aren't playing political games with you. Know americans paychecks. No that's definitely not i mean. Look she she of course does really want this but she will also follow line if she is needed for a bill. That's going to spend one point nine trillion dollars on other various wishlist items for for democrats the fifteen dollars minimum wage. I don't even think honestly can be done this way. I think it makes sense. I mean we haven't had a matter now. I don't know. There's the senate parliamentarian who's going to give this ruling we have. I don't think it's come down. He had had If it came down today. I missed it. But they're going to say. Hey yes you can put. A minimum wage will through reconciliation. I don't think that is within the rules. Now you're right. They could change the rules and they can say well. You know what now you can. They just have to get the votes. They need man should cinema but again when when needed all of these guys will come around. All of them will come around when needed now. I think there's a chance that like something where you know. Joe mansion might say i'll only gonna do twelve fifty an hour like he'll get you. I wouldn't be surprised to see something like romney and someone else wanted to ten dollars an hour. They want to do ten. I think it was seven twenty five now so they raise it up to ten. I mean look. There's overwhelming support in the population for these bills to raise the minimum wage. It's not it's not a close it's among the least popular thing the Three belief. I tell you if you want to say about like two eight and nine dollars. You're talking in the eighties and ninety percent type of approval over these things. It's like a conservative libertarian. Economic point that we are one hundred percent right on but no one agrees with so you did they. They're going to get that through. They can get that through during another bill. Fifteen bucks those really stretching. And i don't think so because i heard a report. What was it yesterday or the day before That we talked about on the program that joe biden had even said the minimum wage deal is dead so you think he just meant if it's fifteen dollars. I think the fifteen dollar thing is such a stretch. And i think they know it's a stretch. I think it's the type of thing they know they're lose. I don't think they can do it the way they're trying to do it. So because the fifty votes think is very specific with the types of rules. They can again change the rules. They can go after and get rid of the filibuster. There are things that they can do. But they're extreme. And i wouldn't put it past democrats to put them through fashion but it's a it's a pretty big step now if they jam in a twelve dollar minimum wage into a bill that they they wanna pass later on. That's very popular like military support. Bill right like that's the type of way. I think they could get something like that done. I don't think rule wise they can get it done this way and i think you probably will cinema and mansion saying look we said we don't support fifteen dollars an hour that's why we only supporting fourteen eighty five. That's the type of thing or it'd be phased in over a longer period though. They'll play their games. But i think you know when it comes down to the democrats will get their fifty votes for this thing and and joe biden knows that everybody knows it. So why would they bend. Why would they bench to romney's ten dollar plan or twelve dollar plan. They don't need to. I just don't think they can do it. This way and pat. I'm going the other. Russian fifteen is good was and fifty dollars an hour. Better not one hundred one really rich. Yes yeah why. Not a million dollars an hour. Let's just make everybody millionaires every hour. Mckee three right. She said like like twenty seven million. This would support all three every thirty million sports. Everybody yeah really really wanted. Why don't kiss right. They should give it to me that they can then afford their sex change operation right which they should get for yes. I thought chris chris hayes tweet out something along the lines of well there's there's absolutely no compelling substantive argument against raising the minimum wage with it doesn't mean that there's no scientific arguments substantive argument against it. It's going to hurt small businesses dramatically and not to mention. It's going to hurt the minorities and the poorest of the people that they that. They claim that they want to help. They're gonna force out of a job and look. The minimum wage is just that it's a minimum wage. For when you're just getting into the workforce that's what it's designed for. It's not designed to support a family of twelve. I mean nobody says you know what. I'm gonna retire on that twelve dollars an hour retire and then i'm gonna make up whenever retiring all probably only make ten dollars an hour but i'm going to retire on this. That's not what it's four and it's for teenagers. who have no skills. Who are working at mcdonald's. Get into the workforce and you make a minimum wage just to get you into the workforce and understand how it all flows out. Works gets a few dollars in your pocket so you can put gas in your car and go crews the drag or whatever these wacky kids do these days that's that's what the cruise drag drag and so but it's been completely flipped around supposed to support a family of or ten because what because they get to use the term livable wage and make not supposed to be a liveable way. We'll we'll what does livable wage even mean. Can someone please define it for me. what is livable wage. Because something that someone can live on in. New york is a lot different than something. Someone who on even in our new york teams not a luke. Labeling like okay. Is this living with a roommate. Is this living without having children before you're ready. Is this living without a really nice car and taking the bus. I mean there are a lot of things in here nuances in here that we're not even discussing because you think you have a right to say i just need a livable wage. So you have to pay whatever the hell i want. It's one of those dumb things they make up. That can mean anything right. I mean we all know one hundred percent of people making minimum wage are living they somehow made it livable. They may not like that light supposed to chip in a way. You you you earn money early on get experienced build your career as a soul. I believe it was said you know the the actual minimum wage is zero when when the minimum wage gets raised. Fifteen dollars. those people get zero dollars per hour and they stay at home and they're on twitch all day right like so. What do you do with that. I mean like if you want a society that is dependent on government for their entire lives of group of young people who grow up with no no ability to learn a trade to actually have a work ethic and build that work ethic. Then you're a democrat and you want this to go on right you know. We know it will cost millions of jobs. It may help some people in certain circumstances but the amount of people who are trying. We've got these numbers before the amount of people who are on minimum wage who are trying to support a family to make it a livable wage. It's such a small amount. You basically rounded two zero. It's almost no one. Almost no one is in this situation. Most of the people are either very young. Or you know maybe in retirement just trying to do something. It's is a very small percentage of people who are in prime earning age who are working to support a household on minimum wage. You're right pat not designed for that You know look. I would be Of the opinion to get rid of the minimum wage entirely So that's just it's just not a sensible thing. It doesn't help people it hurts but again there's only so much pushing you can do on this. We can win this argument and our think tank worlds in our talk show world but when you have a policy that's eighty eight percent approval. They're just going to do it. I mean they're going to find a way to do this. I that we'll get to fifteen but they're gonna find a way to raise it all right. We've got the latest on andrew. Cuomo coming up next. Andrew cuomo is Surprisingly shocking landau sit down for this one denying allegations. This week that he has used his position Too little and bully critics and opponents sexually harassed an aide and suggests she plays strip poker now. Of course we brought you this story yesterday. The allegations from lindsay boylan. Who is a former cuomo aide. Who i think it was last december. She came out and she said he sexually harassed me. Basically he's a slimy sleazeball. Go into the details now. She has and I for one. I'm shocked that he is denying it and also shocked to hear that Multiple women on the left including kirsten gillibrand outspoken of women's rights and You know blasted al franken himself All of a sudden have nothing to say not responding to comments asking them how they feel noble. Leave all women coming from gillibrand on this one. I'm i'm shocked. i'm shocked. Maybe she didn't get the call democratic luminary that spoke out very much this way and advocated for individual immediate and Independent investigations with someone. You might know yeah. He also said there's another guy who had that name no. It's the same person when it was someone else. All we need independent investigations immediately. Now it's supposed to deny his. Denial was amazing to. I don't know if if you happen to see it. But i don't have the exact phrasing in front of me. But basically he. He did one thing he did was take something she didn't say in her piece he she described the the the strip poker situation and said like i you know one person was sitting in front of me one person who was behind me and she names who they are and he responds in his denial to get out of this. We have the flight manifest. That was she on a flight with just those people at no point. Did she say with those people. And then it says you. Can you can attribute this statement to any one of these four people and lists for people and then just says we never heard. We never heard that conversation took place so we'll did. They say that are who. Why are you attributed to four. People did they say it in yours was at a song. They sing at all to get like. Are you just writing words of jamming it into these. These people's mouths because they're subservient to you like you wanted lindsay boylan to be and that's why of course andrew cuomo is awful. Oh my god that amongst us. That's exactly what it says. well And despicable and i will say this as well. We have not heard word one from his brother. Chris chris cuomo or anyone on cnn. That's because there a ban on chris having andrew on the show with him wanted to he'd love to have him on. I think right now there was a man and then they cleared declared it difficult really needed to do the interview with the giant cotton. Swab would have been really at that. One was really. It was hard hitting journalism. I've always found that comedy is much funnier when thousands of people are dying in nursing homes. It's just a rule of comedy So yeah no no no commentary from cuomo which is for andrew. Cuomo is awful dot com. And that's why of course. Also chris cuomo is worse. Dot com dot com. You can get either of these there But they are both true statements. Very you might say what. I don't know maybe chris cuomo isn't worth hasn't killed thousands of people but he's worse than almost anything so it works in every even if you don't think he's worse than andrew cuomo if you just hold it up really really does almost every these like good his and hers cups or his his. Let me make one that. Says don lemon is worser amazing But it is. it is hard to pick though pat. I wanna know if we've gotten so picky now. Where a governor of one of the most populous states in this country can't ask a few employees to strip poker on a flight. You know. I don't think so. We got this picky now where that is a bad thing. Yeah i wish out was it. Just that also touching the leg on the live. I should say what i read. Yesterday there was one that i gave him a pass on which was sending flowers on valentine's day to multiple female aid workers. I was like ok. I was just a case on that was all of his direct underlings. That were women got flowers and one person outside of the direct underlings which was her got flowers on another floor. The only woman on the floor got them so if the car and said like hey baby do you wanna know. The email said that the emails didn't they say he listed One of his former girlfriends and said that she looked like his former girlfriend extended prettier sister and and he told again through multiple layers of management. This is not cuomo saying directly to her. she's saying to lindsay boylans supervisor. Who then communicating. Hey you look like my hot girlfriend's Sister and also You know that. I i have a crush on you so again. Like none of this was. We should be clear number one. Even though andrew cuomo is among the worst people on the planet he's still innocent until proven guilty and number two. None of this was harvey weinstein level. Stuff i mean it was. It was bad and In really creepy but it was not and as much as a legitimately can't stand legitimately he's responsible for thousands of people being dead that being said he still deserves all the protections that That everybody else. And i ain't process. I still believe in due process. It'll be consistent. Even with the worst human beings on earth. i will still say that that's true By the way andrew cuomo awful dot com back in a minute. Don't forget to Go to apple podcast.

The Frontlines- The Regimes Shadow Looms Over The Country, Heres How Catholics Can Move Forward

"Who picked pro-abortion. Rachel levine to be assistant health secretary. Okay so now. It's one thing that that this guy. Yes you heard me correctly. This guy rachel levine. What's what what his real name is. I have no idea usually in an article. They'll put rachel levine. Born john right levin ray levin something like that but i did want to say because this is a perfect segue into into this segment is that we have bosses joe and i okay. We bosses at work. King dudes are boss all right and when king dude says something you gotta listen. We work for dude. Okay now we have a producer for our podcast up again right now. He makes more suggestions. We work together. He's not really our boss but he makes them suggested. So you guys got good. You'll get a kick out of this. So he's doing the analytics for our podcast. Okay and he's breaking a few things down and he says this is what you did on spotify this. What you did on apple females sixty two percent in males thirty eight percent. I guess two chicks like joe. I'm just throwing that out there. But here's the here's the funny part he says guys. Nonbinary is at zero percent. I want you guys to focus on getting those non-binding non binary gender views up seriously. What the hell is that. Not not been dead serious because the heck is now the best. I could ascertain binary means what it says by two male female. That means normal. Okay that's with a capital m. a. l. normal binary male female. That's the way god made it. Okay nonbinary means you don't recognize that now whatever you do identify because i don't know if anybody told you biden says there's three genders but who else hundred thousand see. That's my grandmother would say. I don't care what you recognized. My mother would tell you. Get out of here all right. We have to get our nine. Jonathan up in candidate tells us that he's our producer that we have to get our non binary numbers up. Well guess what that ain't going to happen when joe and i are covering important stories like this guy. Rachel levine. But in all honesty. About rachel levine. I'm gonna be charitable. He sick he's sick. Per and i'm not saying i mean he needs. He needs help and not too long ago. The medical profession would say that publicly not too long ago not too long ago you could not change your sex in america. You had to go to like a rogue country like sweden. I used to go to like a bible study with this old irish guy god rest solely was a saint patrick fahey. He's joe their dirty people in squeezed their dirty people and this is the truth. You couldn't do that in america. By the way i've never heard sweden referred to as rogue so i think that's actually i. I think you might be a i vogue nation. I mean they always had like an odd way up there. I think it's too damn cold. They drink too much vodka. But that's another story but at the same time. Let's talk about rachel event and well sary's in the chat room. Let's call him. Richard fair enough. I could live with that well. Richard in all honesty. He has a problem he sick and the sad part is we're accepting this. We should be respectful of richard clearly. But this is not my beef with him. My beef is this richard faces. Basically during the pandemic he basically ordered nursing homes and other assistant care facilities to make covert patients. Meanwhile local news outlets discovered that levine had moved his ninety five year old mother out of a personal care home right around the time when the order took place of problem with that. Did you get that brian stelter. I have a criticism is not because richard has a problem. Okay and doesn't know gender confused or the fact that he's pro killing brian but the fact that he took his mother out of the facilities that he ordered covid patients to go into to protect ninety five year. Old mother and fake goes like you will never report on. That fake goes like jake. Tapper would never report on something like that your network bastion of free speech that it is okay it's laughable. You're not going to report on this guy and what he did. You're not going to report honestly about this. That he protected his mother while he was while he was passing regulations. That potentially killed other people's mothers. And that's what i mean about this country why we don't get up and start fighting against these people they'll get away with not reporting on that joe and it's disgusting that they don't report on that. I also have a problem with richard. Because pro-life leaders in pennsylvania accused levin of putting women's health at risk by stopping the inspection of abortion facilities during the pandemic whereas the conversation about that. I'm sure everybody in the crusade chat room and everybody who's listening to us always on and always online at crusade channel dot com. I everybody remembers the movie gosnell and the story about kermit gosnell by by my dude who by son kermit. Let's charitable towards kermit's but listen.

Ep. 708 - Beyond Okay To Be Gay

"The data are in. The science is settled. America is getting super duper gay. I'm michael knowles. Is the michael knol. Show welcome back to the show my favorite comment from yesterday from matt. Who says that for breakfast. Joe biden loves muffins because muffins spelled backwards is sniff them and got him. That is true. Joe biden does love smelling people's hair. And when you shave your facial hair. You should check at harry's razors harry's delivers a close comfortable shave at a fair price. Only two dollars per refill. How do they do it. Harris team combined a simple economic design with five sharp blades. They source their steal from sweden and manufacture their blades in their world. Class blade factory. Harry's jeremy factory is one of the select few manufacturers in the world that have mastered the technology to create a arch the gold standard for razor blade grinding. They stand behind the quality of their blades so much that they have one hundred percent money back guarantee on harrys dot com. I really love this razor. it is simple. Nothing it's minimalist. It's just very simple. It's very intuitive. And it's just high quality. It's just about the blade gives me best shave. I've ever had for a limited time. Harry's has an exclusive for listeners of my show new customers can get a harry's starter set with free body wash for just three dollars and harry's dot com slash not. That's over a sixteen dollar value. For just three dollars you'll get a five blade razor waited handle foaming shave gel travel cover which i really love and a travel says body. Wash terrific deal but act fast supplies last go to harrys dot com slash knowles to redeem your offer. Go check out. Harry's razors. There is a gallup poll out that shows you know what great respect i have for science and data Gallup poll comes out and shows that america is getting extremely gay specifically i. That's not specific enough. America is identifying much more as l g b t and you know this is a little complicated because the ellen g presuppose that there are biological sexes and you know men are men and women are women and gay guys are men who are attracted to men and lesbians or women who are attracted to women but then the tea comes in and confounds all of that because the t. presupposes that there's not really any such thing as men or women and women can become men and men can become women and you're not really born this way you know. Everything's kind of fluid and changing all the time. So it's very very confused. But the number of americans who identify with any of those letters increasing pretty dramatically the traditional percentage of americans who identified this way about two percent. Maybe maybe goes up three percent by twenty seventeen that number rose to four and a half percent rose pretty significantly and then in just the last four years that numbers risen again very significantly to five point six percent so it's getting quicker and quicker But the the more curious number is when you drill down into the generations because for americans born before nineteen sixty five. The number of lgbt identifying americans is around two percent a little bit less than two percent. When you get to millennials that number jumps to bat nine point one percent that is Pretty pretty high then when you get to. Gen z that number jumps extremely high that jumps to fifteen point nine percent of americans. I have to believe that there is some biological basis for sexual desire. You know. there's this kind of debate or you born this way or this culture do it. You know. I don't think that you just sort of freely choose your sexual desires. So i don't think for instance that liberace was ever going to end up married to a woman. That just does not seem very likely to me. However i don't think that sixteen percent of zimmer's just so happen to be born this way right with with all these sort of ever expanding alphabet identities. I don't if the numbers were increasing that dramatically. I i would have to assume. There's something in the water if the numbers were purely a biological thing one hundred percent and the numbers are increasing. That weight alex jones would have to be right there. They're turning the fricken zuma's gay or not. I guess more t or g or be your way you know it kind of gets very complicated. Which is kind of my point. I think human sexuality is just a very complicated thing and they're all these different factors in here but surely surely politics and culture plays some role in this as well. The you know i. I did a book club episode. Not that long ago with spencer cliven and we were discussing. Plato's symposium and plato's symposium is very strange for modern readers to read because it's basically a big gay dinner party and so a lot of modern sort of conservatives or christians will read. This is what what's going on here. And there's a huge cultural factor apply in these sorts of behaviors. The reason this poll. I think matters is because right. Now if cultural and political factors have some role here the cultural and political factors are all pushing in one direction namely away from sort of traditional understanding of the sexual questions toward a much more radical one. For instance we talked about my friend. Ryan t anderson and his extremely hilariously titled book when harry became sally. Nah now that's kicked off amazon amazon use to remove products that were politically incorrect. But they had this exception for books. They were not going to remove books. So you can buy books. By hitler on amazon right you know you can. You can buy any sort of book that you find distasteful and you can buy books that express mainstream conservative opinions like men cannot become women. They sort of under the radar. Got rid of this exception the other day so now. All of a sudden ryan anderson's book which is very academic work on the rise of transgenderism is an ideology. That book is gone. Now you're not allowed to say that amazon private company. This is in the field of culture. But they've got a lot of political power to they are now limiting the scope of a reasonable and acceptable. Thought on the sexual questions specifically on the the gender question. Because i think most of the way the culture and politics or pushing in recent years is pushing in the direction of the tea in the direction of gender ideology. This is now being considered. Hate speech can you imagine what this means for other sorts of conservative books that in any way touch on these sorts of questions. My book coming up speechless. This book is going to be out in june speechless. Control words controlling minds. No doubt it's gonna fall afoul of the amazon policy. If ryan anderson book is gonna fall of alabama certainly minus two and probably many others as well beyond just that kind of cultural business realm. The government is pushing in this direction. There is a A bill before the california state assembly one of the most insane legislative bodies in the country that is going to require department store chains to make their children's section gender-neutral. They want this to be in effect by two thousand twenty three. This is called california bill. Twenty eight twenty six from assemblyman. Evan low you'll be shocked to find out that this person is a democrat This would apply stores with five hundred or more employees. So if you go into target or something right and you say oh i want to buy a little Little outfit for johnny knew. What do you do you go in you. Go to the children's section than you are the boy section. What this bill would say is no. You're you're not allowed to have a boy sections basically just going to make it a lot more time consuming to pick out outfits and toys for your children because they're not you're not going to be allowed to label anything. Why because the premise here is. There's really no such thing as a little boys and little girls. Little boys and little girls are not different underscores why the gender ideology is so at odds with kind of traditional homosexual activism because the homosexual that there's actually there's a huge difference between boys and girls and and don't make a boy attracted to a boy go date a girl gender stuff gets rid of all of that but this is being pushed at the governmental level then in this kind of middle ground at a at a school in minnesota. That's not quite the government but it's of is the government and its public. Education is coercive. There's a middle school teacher who's teaching children who are eleven to thirteen years old. Who who is basing at least one of his lesson plans around praising a transvestite prostitute. Take a look now that we have zoom school now. That people aren't really going into classrooms. You can watch some of these lessons. Take a listen to mr peru coz person of the day with very long wait for arson gesture but group careerbuilder for rupin. Her goes person of the day. Is marsha p. Johnson said you don't know much about marsha p johnson. Big were known as years advocate for gay rights and aids as as activists and a self identified a drag and addition to all of their advocacy. Marsha was also well known for their president in for their prices at the stonewall uprising and the subsequent demonstrations throughout greenwich village protested. The police raids. That had been taking place at local gathering places. John's work paved the way for a louder and more prominent voice in injustices that were being done in community. The interesting part here is that johnson themselves was actually discriminated against by the community for being a drag queen nineteen seventy-three the committee in charge of the pri- rate said that they were not going to allow at the bar because they felt that they were giving community fad. That's actually very telling aspect. I mean first of all. This lesson plan is obviously not suitable for eleven year olds. You should not be paying tax money and sending your kids to schools so that your eleven year old can hear hey geographies of transvestite prostitutes. That's crazy but what he says there at the end is he says you know actually The gay community in the seventies didn't didn't really like this guy because They thought it was. It was like kind of just too weird. It was too out there i kind of activism. They were doing and and you see the same this same kind of issue today. I mean all of us have gay friends. No gay people and I have yet to encounter one of them. Say yeah this this whole transgender movement where you're Forcing kids to learn this crazy ideology in question their sex and sometimes gone puberty blockers. That's great. oh yeah man. I love that. That's terrific no. Of course that there was that tension going back to the seventies but right now the left the mainstream left schools corporations. The government is pushing this kind of ideology on children and it actually goes up all the way to the federal level. Even moderate joe biden in this return to normalcy administration is appointing people to very high level positions in the department of health and human services who do not just embrace. This gender ideology themselves do not just You know take this premise. And by the way when you're in a position of power and you're embracing these kinds of premises. It is inevitable at least in this day and age that you're going to force those premises onto your work and unto society but there are people in in the administration who are supporting this ideology for children. Puberty blockers for children. Not doesn't seem very safe to me. One great way to keep your house safe. Checkout ring ring makes me feel safe it makes everyone else. Who has it feels safe to.

Dr rachel levine is named rachel because he identifies as a woman a man who believes himself to be a woman is in a leadership role at the department of health and human services. Just gonna leave that there. That's actually. I don't want to speak that broadly today. I wanna get into a very specific aspect of what assistant secretary of. Hhs rachel levine. Believes rachel levine does not just want to force gender ideology on our national self understanding. Rachel levine also supports schubert. Blockers for children fundamentally screwing with children's biochemistry because johnny decides to pick up a barbie doll or jane decides to play with a toy truck in january of two thousand twenty so not that long ago. Rachel levine tweeted out quote. New study has found that transgender youth with access to a puberty blocker have declined chances of suicide plus mental health problems now and in the future by the way these studies are few and far between and their methodologies are very questionable so one ought to be cautious with these sorts of new studies. That just conveniently happened to backup up. People's deeply held political views on. This study is important because it's the first to show the specific sociation. There you have it. It's i obviously you've got to look into this more deeply. But the argument here is people who suffer from gender confusion sexual confusion Are depressed and anxious and in the case of transgenderism can be suicidal and therefore what we need to do as a society is embrace ideas even if those ideas are manifestly like the idea that men can become women in order to reduce this rate of suicidality and we even. It's what's so important is we need to push this kids. We talked yesterday about how the reason that the left focuses on. Education is because education shapes the way we view the world. When we're young we are much more susceptible things that's why we have a rating system for movies and tv shows because if an adult is exposed to certain material it's going to be much less influential on their thought one way or the other than if a little kid is exposed to certain material. It's why we have rules around where we used to have rules around Pornography for children. That are different than for adults. If if you wanted to go by playboy down the street you'd have to show an i d right. Kids don't get to do that but adults easier. you're a little more formed. The ideas theoretically you. You can handle it. This is the argument behind age of consent laws. The reason that it's creepy when an old guy dates young teenager is because the young teenager or younger. They're not really free to consent. The idea here is that through education specifically through liberal education education. And make sense of your liberty. You taking your base passions. You've taken your appetites. You develop your high higher faculties you develop your will and then you can exercise your freedom right now. The left in pursuit of gender ideology. And really they're using gender radiology as a way to get more. Power is throwing age of consent was out the window if it suits their yala. They're willing to pump kids full of a bunch of chemicals and stop them from going through puberty. What happened to age of consent. It's a really bizarre ironic phenomenon too because we talked about the marilyn manson sex scandal a few weeks ago. How was evan. Rachel wood is accusing marilyn manson of abuse. And what's interesting about the story. Is that evan. Rachel wood consented to this relationship. I think she was engaged to marilyn manson for a long time. She consented to all the weird depraved sexual acts that he was performing on her. I maybe with some exception by it seems as though consent was a big part of this and yet what she says. I couldn't really give consent. Even though i know i consented. You know. we're in this relationship. But i wasn't really giving consent because he groomed me. When i was eighteen years old and he was older he manipulated me. He brainwashed me. I wasn't really in control of my liberty. I couldn't really make a free choice so at the same time that the left is questioning the ability of certain adults to give consent they are now embracing the ability of three year olds to give consent or ten year olds to give consent to stop going through puberty. Make life altering decisions. That doesn't make any sense except in the pursuit of power. What's funny is the kind of evan. Rachel wood and marilyn manson of it all gets back to a much more conservative understanding of liberty. Which is that. Liberty isn't the freedom to do whatever you want pursue whatever desire you have that true liberty is the right to do what you ought to do. That's what we're in. Acton thought to our founding fathers thought it's what old uncle aristotle thought. It's what christ teachers in the gospels. But somehow we've just completely lost our minds on this sort of thing so you've got the culture pushing in one direction and the reason that the left focuses on sex is because sex is very important. The left often accuses the right of being obsessed with sex and the and more broadly speaking the culture wars. But you'll notice in all of these sort of sexual specifically but cultural more broadly debates. It's never the right. That is addressing. Right it's never it's always the left. That's pushing this crazy stuff. So what what the left does is they go in and they say. Hey we're gonna pump your kids full of puberty blockers because we think that boys can become girls and then conservatives will say whoa man that's weird. Oh no don't do that. And they'll say why are you obsessed with sex. Stop come on. Stop obsessing about that. It's not it's it's totally normal. Don't don't be weird. We're just gonna go pump your kids full of puberty blockers. Don't but don't be so obsessive in weird about that and say. I think you're the one. That's pushing a cultural agenda. And you see this clearly in the statistics here. I'm sort of half joking. When i say america's getting super duper gay. What i actually suspect is that maybe for some people who some people probably you know they. They know their sexual desires from pretty young age. And these things are have maybe more of a biological basis for some people. It's more of a margin call and you know. Maybe they're confused. They have lots of different desires human sexuality and then for some people. I suspect they're just identifying this way because there is social cachet to it in the same way that or culture now discourages people from being white. Right you have. Hr trainings in corporate america. That say be less white. So what are you get you get white people pretending to be black. You get people like rachel dole. You get people like that. Nyu professor you get people all sorts of people who are pretending to be different races. It seems like these stories crop up every couple of months in the same way. I suspect you're getting people who have basically ordinary sexual desires. Were now saying no i'm other. I'm trans i'm gender non conforming. I'm a Homosexual that's a new one. That's where you don't put a post modern. And i just don't want people to know your sexual abuse so it means like you're a straight guy but you you wanna sound like really cool. There's one i read called new twat this is in the list of the hundred genders new trois. I believe is when you are sexually confused but also french. So you just become newton twa and was just renuka boo boo. Shoo sipa You get people who are identifying that way because it carries social currency in the way that being able to claim membership in any aggrieved minority at converse social currency today so too can be true in the realm of race that can be true in the realm of sex and it's obviously true in the realm of sexual desire as well so as you've got the culture all pushing this direction this does have real world consequences as real world consequences in for instance the discouragement of the forming of families. And when i say family. I don't mean the sense that we all have different kinds of families. That's i mean specifically families that have children that is declining a lot I think some sort of squishy conservatives. Were celebrating a story that came out a while ago. That divorce rates are hitting all time lows will. That's great but you gotta read read the second part of the story. Which is that marriage. Rates are hitting all time lows too and what happens when people don't get married. Birth rates are hitting lower and lower numbers. The united states right now is a dying country in the sense that we are not replacing ourselves. our birth rate is below replacement. Is it possible that cultural and political factors have have a role in this as well. Is it possible that on the cultural front. This idea that you are discouraged from forming a family discouraged from forming sort of the traditional nuclear model. Does that play a role in it. Does the economic front play a role in the idea that you're encouraged to delay having kids delay getting married pursue. Your career work work work. Everyone in the household needs to go work. The kind of the. I guess i'm sending a little left wing here because this is in a way critique of modern capitalism but i suspect that too is discouraging families and specifically discouraging people from having babies. And now you've got some republicans. Some very conservative populist republicans and even some squish like mitt pushing back and saying wait a second if our public policy has ordered toward not having kids and not having families maybe we should just rework our public policy to encourage those sorts of things one great way to preserve memories of of your kids when they were little of your parents of your grandparents paint your life paint your life dot com will get you a world class painting.

It is the the family is the bedrock political institution if that collapses as it has collapsed. Look at marriage. Rates look at birth rates that poses an existential truly an existential threat to the country. A lot of are other hot controversial political issues. Come from that because when you have a country that's below replacement when you dying country you people who want to keep the economy going going to encourage mass migration which is what you're seeing people are going to. Obviously mass. Migration involves lots of questions of assimilation. What the character of the country is who americans are. What does it mean if they sort of native born. Americans don't wanna have kids than other people are gonna come in. How do you assimilate those people lots and lots of questions mitt. Romney can't believe. I've got to say nice thing about mitt romney but i do you know i try to play fair i. I've said many. Tough things about mitt romney for a at least a decade now but he is seeing a problem. Ronnie end tom. Cotton are proposing a minimum wage plan. This follows after mitt. Romney proposed a plan of direct payments to families who have children. Now i don't know that i love romney's proposal on the direct payments to families but i liked the idea of it. I like the idea that our public policy is not just neutral or public policy for a long time has been discouraging. Family formation has been discouraging people from having kids and so now we shouldn't just throw our hands up in the air. We should try to fix that policy. We should try to govern us the political power that people give us to try to turn that back a little bit more in the other direction. So romney has that plan and he's also pushing this idea of a ten dollar minimum wage now generally speaking at least. The more libertarian minded people among the conservative movement hate the idea of minimum wage and minimum. Wage is a dangerous thing because there are a lot of problems that can result from that. But i actually think this proposal from romney and cotton is a pretty good one. Which is that right now. The left is pushing for a fifteen dollars minimum wage. It's almost certainly going to happen. So how can conservatives mitigate this and also make it work for us well fifteen dollars. Maybe it's a little high. Maybe that's too radical away to increase the minimum wage. So what if we did it. A little more gradually a little more conservatively. You brought it to ten dollars per hour you also had a carve out for the youth minimum wage so the youth minimum wage would increase more gradually four twenty five an hour to six dollars per hour. So you're not having young people totally booted out of the labor market in favor of the if everyone's going to get fifteen dollars an hour you're going to go for the person who is more qualified. Who's older who has more experience. This would also Have some corvettes for businesses with fewer than twenty employees. But then here's the key. The legislation would require e-verify it would it would so you so. Democrats are pushing this fifteen dollars. Minimum wage republicans are saying gosh. There's no way we're going to totally avoid this. But what if we kind of make the minimum wage part of at work a little more for us and then use this. Minimum wage issue to get verifying. E-verify is a way to Discourage employers from using illegal foreign labour. That would be very good for families. That would be very good for american workers one of the reasons that there are economic pressures that have discouraged people from family formation from having kids namely used to be able to support a family on the wages of one american worker. The other the other spouse would stay home. Now that's really very difficult and part of that is because a lot of especially lower. Wage workers are competing with this flood of cheap foreign labor. This is something that conservatives have been talking about a longtime but even old school leftists like bernie. Sanders had been talking about who's been saying. You know unlimited immigration is really good for zillionaires. Wanna pay low wages. But it's really bad for the american worker. The people pushing it. It's this weird kind of dynamic of left-wingers in corporate america and even the sort of libertarian right-wingers. Like the coke. Brothers for instance famously. Very in favor of much more immigration so. I think this is a a decent enough plan. I like the big. Win of e-verify. Kim i also can't believe i have to say another nice thing about mitt romney today. There's a lot of debate over the future of the republican party and trump's role in the republican party. You've got people like liz. Cheney whose in house leadership who hates trump got to her in a second romney also obviously hates trump. he was true never trumper. he didn't vote for trump either time. He doesn't like the guy at all. But but romney was asked about twenty twenty four. Hey you know mitt. Do you have any thoughts about twenty twenty four. Do you think trump will run and romney calling it like he sees it. He says yeah i. If trump won't does run he's gonna win in a landslide. We'll president trump continue to play a role in my party. I'm sure willie. He has by far the largest voice in a big impact in my party. I don't know about his family members. They intend to do that. But but i expect he will continue playing a role. I don't know if you'll run. Twenty twenty four and a half but if he does breach sure he will win the nomination. You think he would win the nomination. Oh i think it win the nomination. If he runs. I mean that can happen between now in twenty twenty four so And i'm not great at predicting. I subscribed to yogi. Berra's us in that regard. He said i don't like predicting particularly if the futures involved so i am I don't really know what will happen there. But i look at the polls in the polls show that among the names being floated as potential contenders in twenty twenty four if you put president trump in there among republicans wins in a landslide wins in a landslide. So what mitt. Romney is saying here and he actually. He goes on to say this pretty explicitly. What he's saying here is. Trump is the leader of the republican party because mitt then goes on later in the interview and he says you know look i represent a very small portion of the republican party And trump represents the republican party. That's why he would win the nomination in a landslide so romney. It's very actually a very good interview. Because he also touches on part of the trump phenomenon. Which is this idea of. Populism and a few people would accuse mitt romney of being a populist. Except if you look at some of the policies proposing these days. Maybe there's an argument that you could be made but mitt. Romney makes a simple point. It's it's a plain truth. A self evident truth that populism is popular populism is successful up because it's popular Such as part of its name Populism has disappeared where it tends to get an installed whether italy or argentina or peru and and And so there's a populist movement on the right in our country and on the left and those movements i don't believe are going to be going away anytime soon although i think over time that policies that that endure and that really helped the american family will be more successful. So i remain if you will more traditional conservative than than some of the populist rhetoric within my party mitt romney as such a tragic figure. Mitt romney it's too bad because he's saying a lot of smart things in here and he's actually doing a lot of smart things right now but he just doesn't quite get it he I don't know. I think for a lot of people trump sort of broke them and i think he doesn't he actually doesn't understand what is meant by populism and his role in all of that. I think it's just because romney's been running for president for decades at this point. He's just kind of skewed as perception. You remember when when romney was running for the senate against ted kennedy. He said He basically ran away from the legacy of reagan. He ran away from being called a conservative. He said i wasn't a conservative. During the time of reagan bush. I was an independent during the time of reagan bush. I'm i'm not that conservative. He ran news sort of pro-abortion right when he when he ran for senate and then he pretends when he runs for presences. I'm severely conservative. And now he says. I'm a traditional conservative. Well all these terms are kind of useless. I wanna i wanna bring them all down to earth. What romney is saying on his bike by intimating that we should have a pro-family sort of policy. That's a populist idea. Whatever populism usa's motivating trump. i think a lot of it has to do with overthrowing the old ossified conservative political order of the last twenty years and saying. Hey wait a minute why are we just serving zillionaires who hate our guts. Why are we schilling for hedge fund managers in wall street moten. The majority of them don't like us at all. Why are we supporting trade deals. That are bad for the american worker. Why are we the kind of blue collar base of the republican party. Doing these sorts of things that are really killing us in breaking up our families and breaking up our society and breaking up our american way of life. Let's not do that. Let's break these old sort of silly ideological maximums. That i don't think made very much sense. Even when they were were popular and let's focus on the family. The worker the nation american sovereignty. Getting out of this sort of globalist regime that is not really serving. Most americans and certainly not conserving our way of life. Romney's kind of saying the same thing saying yeah. We need a very active policy to support families. Yeah we should maybe raise the minimum wage but only in a way that will curb immigration. These are very populous things. If any other politician were proposing where romney's proposing right. Now we would say oh. Yeah this is someone part of the maga- movement you know part of the trump movement but because it's romney because romney's often very distasteful in the in the way he presents things we we don't like it very much. But i wish romney would embrace his inner populist i think he actually would be much more successful and some of the wisest stuff he's done in his whole career all right. I've said to many nice things about generally squishy republicans. So i gotta get back to knocking the swishes. This debate that that romney's talking about recess. You know yeah. I like these kind of populist ideas. But i hate trump. I would never vote for him. the question is what is trump's role in the future of the republican party. And you saw it split almost perfectly yesterday on c. span where you had the republican minority leader. Kevin mccarthy answered a question about trump's role in the party in a pro-trump way. And then liz cheney this lady who is sort of in leadership you know with the minor leadership role but she is she totally smacks trump down president trump. These missy again. The that's up to see fact. I've been clear my views about the president trump and the extent to which sentiment fell in january. Sixth i don't. I don't believe that he should be playing partner. Countries that pat mccarthy pretty funny here and what's amazing after you can see the cringe sir creeping on him as liz cheney and she goes yeah i hate trump. He have any role in the party and role in the country. Unless cheney and. I approve this message mccarthy. Just think and then once she finishes and he makes it a little joke. They walk in opposite directions. Of course he goes one way. Cheney goes the other my question listening to this is why do republicans tolerate this woman. Why on earth is liz. Cheney leadership well. There's a practical reason. She's in a technical reason rather leadership. There was a vote on her leadership. She's in leadership because they made it a secret ballot. If this had been a public ballot she would not be in leadership because everybody knows that the republican base voters do not think this woman represents them because this woman doesn't represent them even mitt romney's willing to admit that he says yeah. I represent a small portion of the republican party and donald trump is. The leader of the republican. Party is effectively what he's saying. So i'm not saying. Kick liz cheney out of the house though. Probably she should be primary and probably she would lose. I'm not saying. Kick mitt romney out of the senate actually kind of more on mitt side here. Where mid saying yeah. I represent the small portion but trump's the leader. Okay if he if trump is the guy who represents republican party. Why on earth is liz. Cheney in the leadership what is the point of it. I'm saying you find disagree. Big ten party. I'm cool with that. I have no. I really have no problem with that. But in leadership this woman does not represent the party. Now shockingly i've gotta get back to some other never trumpers and kind of squishy republicans saying some good things. Never say on this show. That i am unfair. Or i'm only carrying water for certain politicians rathers i I'm willing to complement. The kind of never trumpers in the squish is when they when they do and say good things. Because i don't i actually don't want to cast them into outer darkness all the time. Sometimes i do i. I actually wanna bring them over to our way of thinking. If if mitt romney would just actually listened to the very things that he is saying and get over his deep seated hatred of donald trump. Who's a polarizing figure. We all grant and if mitt romney could come on over more to the conservative side of things. I think that would be great. He's obviously an intelligent guy. He's inarticulate guy. He's a good looking guy right it just as a retail politics matter. He looks good if he could come over to our way of thinking thinking great i welcome him in. This is true of a number of the other kind of squishy are republicans who've gone squishy in the age of trump guys like Ben sasse for instance who i thought yesterday had a terrific performance grilling joe biden's nominee for the department of health and human services. Not the fellow who thinks he's a lady the assistant secretary but the actual Nominee for secretary of hhs. The sarah ben sasse who has invoked the ire of many conservatives in recent weeks and months because he's he was a never trumper and he often tax members of his own party and he was censured by his own state. Republican party sas had a great performance yesterday. Going after xavier becerra becera was the former attorney general of california and a real real radical. The sarah when after nuns tried just like the obama biden administration. Becera went after nuns because he wanted to force them to pay for abortion drugs and contraceptives so sas grilled him on this point. Guy tried to say to senator grassley. I understand that. Americans have different deeply-held beliefs on this particular issue. And i absolutely respect that by the way i have never sued the nuns any nuns. I have taken on the federal government But i've never sued any affiliation of of nuns old up point point that there before we really get into what's assez. It is technically true that sarah never sued nuns. What he did with cnn crazier. He wanted to sue nuns. The federal government under the trump administration would not let him soon ons and to try to force them to pay for abortion drugs and contraceptives so bizarre sued the federal government so that he could get his right back to sue the nuns and try to force them to pay for abortion and contraceptives sas. Totally knocking gonna take his lame excuses. You know well you're incredibly smart man you know well that what the federal government did was. Make sure that you couldn't target the nuns. So you sued the federal government because the federal government said the nuns didn't have to buy contraceptive insurance. You can put seventeen layers of you following the law to go after the federal government for administering the program. We're doing extra why that made it difficult for you. To for california to administer the program but it was just about nuns buying contraceptive coverage. Was there something else. The federal government did that. You were suing them for when when the case called california vs little sisters of the poor senator. The case was not again. That was not the name of the case. And i will tell you is that our actions were based on trying to follow the law that when the federal government took action which we believe did not comport with law at that point we took action and our action was based on the line. So as i've said we we may disagree on how we see this. And i respect the differences that we may have but my action was to follow the law. No it wasn't. Your action was to attack the law you to dispute the law in court because the federal government interpreted this federal law. And you didn't like it because the government's interpretation said you couldn't the so stop. Please stop this ridiculous posturing ridiculous procedural as posturing and get to the heart of it. You wanted to sue the nuns to make them pay for abortions and contraceptives and the federal government didn't want you to do it so you sued them. Speaking of trying to grow the american families speaking of trying to reverse this course of national death and decline one good way to to reduce that is to stop killing our babies and to encourage a culture of life rather than a culture of death but is a good politician. Know is a is a shrewd guy. He knows how to portray this. Where if you didn't know the facts of this case and you just watch this exchange. Maybe you'd say oh they both got good points in but sas sas gotta give it to him. He won't let what about the law as the federal government's conscious conscience exemptions applied. In the case where you sued the federal government. What about the law applied the anybody except the nuns and other similar situated religious institutions You were targeting religious liberty. a what what. What about the law. I know we're talking about the. What about the law. Though what were you trying to do with the law bow and this this is the big issue right now. Under moderate joe biden's administration. You've got the leader of hhs pushing politics toward encouraging culture of contraception and abortion. This is the issue you've got this world in which the the government right i think the concern is for too long have a kind of embraces libertarian. Idea that there's the government and the government can never do anything then anything. The government does is bad and get you know. We can't political people give us and This has given the left the opportunity to completely transform the culture but politics and culture which is a little blurry line in between those things they can encourage things one way or the other and by the way when they say one thing. They exclude other things. So getting back to what. We're talking to at the top of the show if you have a culture and backed up by political regime that says that it is simply a fact that men can become women women can become men and it's bigoted to say otherwise and you drill this into kids heads from kindergarten onwards and then you use the law to say we. We should pump kids full of puberty blockers. If you know. Jane likes to play football at thanksgiving or something. And we should fundamentally changed their biochemistry. What you're doing is you're saying this is the way the world works. And all of those incentives are going to be compounded you know conservatives used to understand how incentives work when you incentivize something you tend to get more of it when you disincentivize something. You tend to get less of it for a long time. The left was focused entirely on transforming the culture and the right was focused on getting more tax cuts and that was it and the the right completely gave up on these cultural sorts of issues and left aggressed and digressed and digressed on issues of race on issues of sex. We're seeing that all today. The result of this has been a politics of division a- politics of confucian a politics of hollowing out our institutions and our tradition and we got some tax cuts and look. I like tax cuts. I love tax cuts. But there's much more and if conservatives whatever the conservative movement and the republican party is going to be in the future if it does not focus on preserving the american family than up from that the american local polity in a local towns thriving communities and up from that the american sense of nationhood the american sense of our way of life.

Feminist Utopia E 62: When will femme politicians get a break?

"Welcome to feminist utopia. I'm benita. And i'm debbie and today we are talking about Utopia where men and women in politics are treated equally and there aren't any double standards suggesting that women have to work harder and be nicer exactly so in our feminist utopia Women can get in there and throw those sharp elbows just as much as the men. Can i know. I can turn sharp elbows. Oh yeah marching on twitter twitter place for it. Oh wait a minute near attendants finding out the deck can get back in. But you but we'll get to that later exactly. But let's start out again with tots in pairs. And i want to throw out some tots in paris for john get hurt. He is the former. Us olympic gymnastic coach. Who worked with disgraced sports. Dr larry nassar and john get hurt. Killed himself on thursday hours after being charged with his michigan jim into a hub of human trafficking by coercing girls to train and then abusing them. This is truly tragic and it is traumatizing again for all of his victims and sarah klein was a gymnast who trained under get hurt And was assaulted by nassar. Said the coaches staff was an escape from justice and traumatizing beyond words and his suicide was an admission of guilt. Yeah i get why he killed himself because there are no other places to hide right right it was are gonna come out and i just hope that the girls that were involved that are now women. The women that were involved when they were girls. Let me put it that way eventually. Find peace and that this in and of itself provides some sort of closure. I think that. I mean if they can feel like they've been heard and seen and believed and know that we stand behind them. That's probably about all we can hope for at this point at this point yeah and Women have been. Girls have been abused in the american gymnastics program not just sexually but emotionally and physically going back to bell karoly and it was part of the bella. Curly was romanian coach who came to the united states and also revitalize. The american women's gymnastics program. Mary lou retton was one of his athletes one of his athletes and he was known for telling them they were too fat or being emotionally abusive unique to try harder or whatever and hopefully these women get some peace. All of this stuff. Larry nassar went to jail thinking he didn't do anything wrong. And at least the shame of it got to jog entered. I mean 'cause larry nassar it doesn't feel ashamed at all. He had you know all of those women testifying against him in court s. I mean he really must have some cognitive dissonance going on there to not have any of them penetrate his consciousness so that he would feel guilty. Predators rarely feel guilt for their actions. The other person somehow deserved it and get. It was a predator. Nassar is a predator. He probably is a predator even in prison looking to manipulate and use people so we need to move onto good vibes because this is getting a bit heavy yes so let's give some good vibes to hasbro. And they are making sure all feel welcome in the potato ahead world by dropping. The mr from the mr potato head brand name and they're trying to promote gender equality and inclusion and. I really love this because you used to have to buy two potato heads to all the accessories. My oldest is really the potato head thing because of toy story and So i really love that. Now there will be a potato head that has all the things so so. Has i walking away from some money. Probably on this and the other thing that i thought was interesting in some of the pushback that i saw you know people are up in arms about you. Know the 'gendering potato. Like i don't know how the downfall of society is going to happen now because mr potato head is no longer mr you know in it. Just points out how the construct of gender is taught. Yes yes so now. There can be a potato head with the bowler hat and the earrings and the the made up lips and the is with the big eyebrows and kids are just free to use their imagination and create. Which is the whole idea in the first place. Yes and so the people that are offended they can pound sanded. Good vibes to hasbro for doing the right thing. Yup and along the same lines. Good jobs for the equality act. That was passed in the house by a vote of two twenty four to six. Actually it was a bi partisan vote. Three republicans joined the democrats and the act amends. Existing civil rights law to explicitly include sexual orientation gender identification as protected characteristics that the protections extend to employment housing public accommodations and other things in. It's long overdue long overdue. They've been trying to do this. Three executive orders and so as we saw when obama made an executive order And then along comes trump who makes an executive order revoking that executive order. It's important that they're really working to make this a law. The president no matter who that person is cannot dismiss a law with an executive order. Right the the frustrating part about is they passed it in the last congress with unanimous democratic support and the backing of eight republicans. But it wasn't even considered in the senate. The thank you mitch mcconnell. Thank you moscow mitch. And now i mean they're still looking at needing a super majority of sixty to get it to pass in the senate and unless we abolish the filibuster. It's not going to get past this time either. I swear we need to do a whole episode about explaining what the filibuster is why it needs to go and who do we lean on to make that happen okay. There's a whole episode yet but yeah the filibuster every. Yeah but the filibuster dear god. We need the Joe louis voter voting rights act to and we're gonna get there without a filibuster. Busting the filibuster so advice to the house for doing it. And good vibes for the republicans that had the intestinal fortitude to cross the aisle in shame on those who didn't exactly and let's just kind of put out some good vibes to the senate because we know it's at least going to be taken up it'll make to committee legis further than it did last. Yeah i came across this news healing needed to shout out because it. It's from china and a beijing. Divorce court ordered. Amanda compensate his wife or the housework. She did during their marriage. So there's a new civil code in china which came into effect this year. Under the new law a spouse is entitled to seek compensation in a divorce if he or she bears more responsibility in child raising caring for elderly relatives and assisting partners in their work. This is a way for women to kind of compensate for all of the work that they do. That's intangible the bad news about this was she got like pennies but hey at least in china. They're recognizing the value of women's work. They're recognizing it deserves compensation which is more than what we're doing in the united states So i know we're spending a longtime good vibes but we got a lot of good vibes. Do you know who zendaya is. My son's do yeah. I'm would not really familiar with her. But she had a recent interview with vanity fair and they asked her What is the quality you like. Most in a man and she balked at the phrasing of the question said How about what i like. Most in a person how about that. She was in spiderman. I had to go look up a picture of her in one of the spiderman movies. Yeah his love interest and what a way to be inclusive and just you know positive. It's a push back to the patriarchy in such as subtle easy way. We can all do that in it. Doesn't sound like much. But it's those little conversational tweaks that we can all do. We're not getting interviewed by big time while journalists but when we're having conversations with our friends and family I think that kind of stuff's important. I've now My my younger son. Especially he's very good at reminding me to rephrase things. It's a constant journey of learning. And i think she took this moment to be part of that journey for somebody and for a bunch of us. Were reading that. I think it's it's wonderful so good vibes vibes and big good vibe. Hugs to rachel levine. Who is the current head of pennsylvania's health Who is now up for nomination by in the by the biden administration to be the assistant health secretary. So it's one of those slots that you need to have confirmation that the senate and rand paul just head to paul. During the whole damn thing. I swear for doctor. This man is utterly clueless. I think he got his degree from google. But anyway rand. Paul tried to keep in mind. Rachel levine a a transplant. So you have to start with that She's very accomplished huge background in public health. Overqualified for the job. If he asked me she should have been the secretary. But no one asks my opinion but rand. Paul berated her during her nomination harry by trying to draw connection between genital mutilation which is considered a human rights violation in many countries and transition related surgery and medication for children now. He implied that like kids as young as eight or doing it. No but when a quote child is seventeen there are many things or they might do puberty blockers anyway. Also but it isn't like rachel levine. Is out there trying to convert kits to being translated like isn't she isn't out there promoting the the the sort of stuff she's a public health official and right now she's probably more concerned with cova than anything else but anyway so paul took this opportunity to verbally abuse a trans woman. He also complained about lean for children. Who make the decision to take those hormone blockers children. What age we talking here. They're not doing it eight. They're doing when they are older and need to stop being having their bodies change on them in create greater gender dis- fauria and remove your these children. I mean they're not deciding to do this on a whim either a lot of times. They know that they're transgender. Win there well before they know the word for it. They understand that their body doesn't fit their mental image of what it should be. It doesn't it doesn't fit who they are and so having growing breasts when you really know your ah boy is traumatic Growing in adam's apple when you know you're a girl is traumatic and so it isn't like a gp Here take this. I mean there's a lot of stuff that goes into it. Rand paul nordahl. That and blamed. Rachel levine for it. I'm rachel levine. Behaved super nice and response. I'd have just given him. Double middle fingers walked the hell out but a recent i'm never going to be a nominee for anything But levine responded very kindly by saying transgender. Medicine is a very complicated nuanced field. That is constantly changing and she'd be happy to discuss this issue. Further with paul after the senate confirmed appointment. Bam good her mic drop. It was i remember. I was watching this on c. span. Because i'm a weird that way and i'll put it on when i'm doing something else on the computer and the look on her face. It wasn't discussed or anchor. It was dismay it was hurt. Yeah and of course. He's not gonna apologize. It was she was blindsided by it by this a barrage. It wasn't like he asked kindly. It was like he was blaming her for every child in america who may or may not be trans and it was her fault it was it was awful and This kind of double standard. I don't think this would have happened to rachel. Levine if rachel levine had been had been born a woman transition to be the man that she is so i'm saying if it was like female to male. I don't think we would have seen the same conversation that we do as male to female. I think a lot of anti trans people are also misogynous and quiet on earth would transition to something lesser like that that offends them on an even greater level and rand. Paul is just a national embarrassment. I'm still offended on her behalf. Yeah but i mean it's just illustrative of the misogyny that is happening in politics in the political arena There's definitely an additional penalty for being a woman and democrat. I mean looking at biden's cabinet. There are ten on twenty three that have actually passed through the senate and the women have had a harder. Time of it i. It's it's been extraordinary to watch in real time for me. We've done an episode about women in politics but is really from a thirty thousand foot view about threats and stuff like this but watching this microcosm you can see how little has changed Yellen who was the who is now the treasury head. The woman was paraded for making money off of wall street. But if she hadn't had a close relationship with wall street they said she was a radical. Who was going to destroy capitalism right in art men like celebrated for making money off of wall street. Yes jane yellen was trashed for it and then we you know we have a one of my personal favorites is linda. Thomas greenfield who has over thirty five years of diplomatic experience. I cannot think of another american. The level of experience with international diplomacy the connections with other governments and she was nominated to be the un ambassador. Did i mention. She's also a black woman and she only had seventy eight. Senators vote for her now. Granted some republicans across the aisle but but sell. Several of them said she just wasn't qualified. What the hell else is. She supposed to do to be qualified right. Have a penis. Maybe yeah and a jennifer granholm former governor of michigan. Two time governor of michigan former attorney general of michigan very close ties to big auto industry. There she's now. The energy secretary replacing rick perry who had an animal husbandry degree and he hit were glasses to make himself look good. look smarter. Many senators attacked her saying she was going to destroy the american economy. Because she she supportive of creating green energy infrastructure and by the way biden campaign creating your green infrastructure and was overwhelmingly elected on that. And why would he nominate someone for that post. That didn't share his vision for what he wanted in what people voted for in president biden's vision includes having partners like the auto industry would jennifer granholm is supremely tied into. She is a ivy league-educated attorney and again So this mouth. Breathing senator. John barrasso from wyoming. Gosh i disliked this man. President biden has declared war on american and energy in america energy workers. I cannot in good conscience vote to approve his nominee for the secretary of energy like she's going to abolish i'll fossil fuels or something and here's this woman. She is tremendously qualified. She only got sixty four votes. It's insane meanwhile. And i know i keep banging away at this mayor. Goddamn pete sorry. I shouldn't say that. Mayor mayor pete kinda skates through his nomination. Hearing right this confirmation hearing very smoothly. Nobody said he wasn't qualified granted. I don't know why nobody pointed out that his major experience that the transportation industry was filling potholes in south bend. Is there like literally he did. A photo op. He's out there filling bottles because northern indiana. There's going to be potholes all the time. And he got eighty six votes for his nomination. No one ever said he wasn't qualified ever eight. You have to laugh because it is so infuriating. Yes it is so infuriating and averil haines who a lot of people on the left. Don't like and we're going to get to near attendant. Who a lot of people on the left don't like myself included have to defend it. I feel really dirty. But we'll get into the anti actually helped obama roll out the drone bombing program. This is five people on the left. Don't like her And republicans were wondering if she was going to be tough enough hawk. Being head of intelligence she only got eighty four votes. Yes because this woman literally had a record for bombing people and they're like but is she really going to be a hawk. What can you do to prove how hockey she is. So we've got two more in the pipeline. That are two more women that are getting beat to hell right near tandon and deb went near. Tannin is biden's pick to head up the o. M. b. the office of management and budget and it. Most people don't pay attention to the o. m. b. as much but it's it's it's really one of the most powerful positions you can have. I would much rather be that position than like the secretary of energy because this is the person that implements the big vision through the executive branch. They do oversight of agency guidelines. They make sure all the agencies Rules and are fulfilling the vision of the executive branch they set the legislative agendas in many ways. They arrange agency testimony provide legislative proposals. It's a huge huge job in your tan comes along. And she's a longtime clinton ally she she worked with bill clinton. I mean longtime in rumors that she helped bill clinton get through that welfare reform bill. She says that she didn't okay But she also worked for the obama administration is for the. She worked as an assistant to the secretary for health and human services since obama. She has been taking part in a think tank that she helped form in two thousand and three called the center for american progress. Which did like these little bs. things like. we don't want medicare for all. We want our own version which is medicare extra for all which was really just kind of like a slightly expanded obamacare. So between her support for the welfare reform. Bill clinton in this kind of stuff the left really kind of an and so in two thousand sixteen. When trump won her group the center for american progress yeah center for american progress wanting to be the center for opposition to trump so she started throwing some sharp elbows on twitter. I kind of like to do and it wasn't even really stuff. That bad in my opinion. Believe me when. I say i've done worse but she would say things like calling susan collins senator susan collins of maine the worst and i can't argue with that susan collins goes around being disappointed to the point where in my house we now call it. Are you disappointed or susan collins disappointed. Meaning how much do you want to do about it. Comparing ted cruz. A vampire which i think is kind because everybody else knows. He's a lizard person and using the nickname moscow. Mitch for mitch. Mcconnell comparing to lord volta more. okay. I mean this is not even unique. This unique this is what i mean. Do better no. I mean she is. She didn't come up with moscow. Mitch she sat the only one to call him that the same with you know. She's not the only critic of susan collins so to think that this disqualifies her from being nominated to that position or to being appointed to the office of management and budget. Make sense especially like the ted cruz stuff. You've got lindsey. Graham who is a senator who's going to vote against her said someone could kill ted cruz on the floor of the senate session in. No one's going to testify against the killer. That's how much the senate hates. ted cruz. I hadn't heard that. Oh yeah i'll put that in there. I mean it's one of those that keeps popping up every time. Lindsey goes full trump So lindsey graham actually talked about the potential murder of ted cruz calling ted cruz of vampires beyond the pale so we come back to joe manchin of west virginia who is a republican caucuses with the democrats. I don't think he can call himself a democrat. That's for sure in joe. Manchin says that she does not embody the part the bipartisanship that this position calls for because she said she had mean tweets. of course. joe manchin voted to confirm bill. Barr and more importantly voted to confirm jefferson. Okay i have to say jefferson beauregard sessions name correctly because ginger in houston shadow. It who taught me to save properly jefferson. Bo regard sessions okay. Reagan thought was to racist in people. Forget this spec in one nine hundred. Six jeff sessions was up for an appointment to a federal judgeship and he was in the nomination process and basically a bunch of stories came out about racist racist things to he had said to his own employees including thomas figures who was a former deputy black man who was told by sessions to be careful about what he said. Quote to white folks after figures got into an argument with a white colleague. Also jeff sessions called him boy. A multiple occasions rude In sessions allegedly also joked about the clan. Thinking the members row k. Until he learned they smoked pot. He said this to a black man. And a justice department lawyer testified that sessions described the end of lacey pe- in aclu is unamerican and communist inspired and so what happened the judiciary committee which was republican led republican majority at this time refused to move him out of committee his nomination died on the vine because frequently so appropriately so so many years later joe manchin votes to make this guy this this racist garbage individual at the attorney general. But you know calling tekere's vampires bridge too far. I feel like we haven't come far at all. You know. I mean as far as we are going in the wrong direction. It's gotten worse. I everything feels like it's gotten worse you know but how much does has gotten worse or how much we were paying attention to ways. We didn't i mean i was sixteen with jeff sessions was up. I don't remember any of that. Until i read about it when he was up to be the attorney. General and i'm like oh wow. I think the republican party has moved so far to the right people on the right talk about the far left and the communists and stuff like that. I don't think the democratic party's moved much at all right thank the. Gop is moved so freakishly to the right So you end up so freakishly right. Roll into the The next nominee. Deb highland I'm sorry if i mispronounced. That i'm trying. How land is a democrat congresswoman from new mexico. And she's also a a native american woman and she was nominated to be the secretary of the interior. The interior department takes care of a lot of the native american programs. The bureau of indian affairs right and land use energy development. Yes yeah all these things that are very tied into that. So what is senator kennedy from louisiana collar left of lenin wack job at this point are we surprised no but what a joe manchin do said. He had doubts about her. I don't understand how insecure these men must be to be threatened by strong women in the positions. And then you watch. The women like deb holland. And rachel levine charted. Nice way out of the situation. I didn't think anybody that has been raised as a woman in the united states knows that feeling It's someone making inappropriate sexual comment. It's your boss getting mad at you about something you know isn't your fault. It's all sorts of things. We've all been there and watching these amazing qualified women having to put up with this in to those same nizing techniques so so when joe manchin expressed his doubts about her. What a deb do. She spent like a couple of hours with him on zoom. Call trying to make him feel better. I just want to set a mom tire. I just getting off on his power. I mean he's got an incredible amount of power within the democratic party now by opposing them. Yes and it's not just us and two former senators. Tom and mark udall both I think once from utah ones from colorado wrote an op. Ed for usa. Today in which they said that said it's hard not to notice that rep holland has been called out as radical for taking these normal positions. Were either of us the nominee to head up the interior department. We doubt that anyone would be threatening to hold up the nomination or wages scorched earth campaign warning about radical ideas. Her record is in line with mainstream conservation priorities thus the exceptional criticism of representative holland and the threatened holds on her nomination must be motivated by something other than her record. It's the fact that she's native american in the fact that she's a woman how dare she not be more deferential to these white men right so our call to action is pick up the phone. I want you to blow up joe mansions office line. I don't care if you're not one of his constituents tie him up. I am up. Let them know that you find his behavior repugnant and bigoted misogynistic racist. All the things exact. Because because obviously he doesn't hold white men accountable but on that note i wanted to add a little Poetry uplifting moment of uplifting end on a on a little bit nicer note this is. I'm just gonna presented a new can interpret on your k- the palm is called the peace of wild things by wendell berry when despair for the world grows in me and i wake in the night at least sound in fear of what my life and my children's lives may be i go and lie down.

Ep 384 | Sane Solutions to America's Insane Problems | Guest: Sen. Rand Paul

"Hey guys welcome to relatable hope. Everyone has had a wonderful week. We made it to thursday. Tomorrow is friday. So congratulations on getting this far all right today. I'm super excited. Because i get to interview. Senator rand paul. We're going to talk about all kinds of things in about ten minutes or so. That i have him. We are going to talk about his victory in making sure. That ppp money into covert. Bill does not go to planned parenthood. We'll talk about some of the concerns that we as pro-lifers still have with the relief. Bill i will also talk about that viral exchange that he had with the hhs assistant secretary. Nominee rachel levine and why parents white people of all kinds need to be concerned about that radical pick and the other radical nominees That joe biden that joe biden has selected. And we'll also talk about school choice after that conversation. I think we'll get into a little bit if we have time. Some of what's going on at border. I know we talked about that with representative chip roy as well but there are some more details that i think i want to cover and then there a couple more things that i also want to talk about so a packed episode and i really wanna leave you today with some encouragement. There's a lot of craziness obviously going on in the world but there's so much to rejoice over and to be thankful about as well so first. Let's talk to senator rand. Paul senator paul thank you so much for joining. Is there a few things. I want to talk to you about today. The first thing i want to talk about is something that happened last week. You claimed victory in the fight over. Ppp money going to planned. Parenthood in the senate cove relief. Bill can you talk a little bit more about that how that was accomplished and what it actually means the ppp money was intended to go to small businesses so big enterprises like planned. Parenthood were too big to qualify but being devious like they are planned. Parenthood decided to apply for it by breaking themselves down into individual entities by city and they did actually get like thirty eight million dollars. We've found out about it and we contested it and then they were gonna fix this. It wasn't legal for them to do it but they were going to fix this in this covid relief bill and make it legal for them to do what they had already done. We went to the parliamentarian and said hey this does not have a budgetary impact. Doesn't mean what they call the bird rule and so we had this discussion. A free willing discussion with parliamentarians parliamentarian ruled in our favor and the democrats headed to take it out on the bill so it was a small victory since we lost almost everything else with the democrats but a big victory in the sense that we're hoping it will prevent planned parenthood from getting government money other votes on the hyde amendment which should prevent government money from going to abortion and the democrats voted lockstep not to invoke the hyde amendment. And then on this though we did have a victory that we think will prevent planned parenthood from getting tax dollars. Right and that goes into what i was about to ask. There are still concerns and maybe a little bit of confusion about whether or not any restrictions. Four abortion funding actually made it into the bell so do prolifer still have reason for concern. with our federal tax dollars supporting abortion through this bill yes because i hide protections were were not explicitly put in the texans were named after henry hyde who was a congressman from illinois. Who many many years ago. It used to not be as controversial even democrats would support. This was that no matter. What your opinion on abortion was people came to an agreement that government and tax dollars shouldn't go to paying for worship now. No democrats boards that and we tried to put it into the cove bill and it failed. I was able to strip out some language which we think would make it easier for planned parenthood but we let our guard down. No i've told my staff. Let's watch him like a hawk. I'm on the small business administration committee which oversees this program. So we're going to watch the michael hawk and we will be vigilant and we'll let you know if they try to get tax payer money we're also going to be watching them to see if they try to claw back the thirty eight million. That had already got right a couple of weeks ago and your exchange with the nominee. rachel levine. You voiced a lot of concerns that a lot of parents have probably whether they identify as conservative liberal or moderate in that became a viral moment. Obviously you got pushed back from from people on the left side of the aisle. How likely is it. That rachel levine will be confirmed every every democrat will vote for and maybe a few republicans so unfortunately she'll be confirmed. It is now normal in the democrat party to believe that a child can choose to take hormones to change their sexual appearance and can even choose to have surgery without their parents. Their parents consent or even to override their parents lack of consent. So imagine at ten zero wants to take hormone blockers. I don't ten-year-old even knows what that is but annual wants to do that and the parents say no these people are so bizarrely radical that they would let the ten year olds decision override or trump. The decision on whether or not this child should have this. They also lied to us when they say. Oh it's all reversible. The the puberty blockers may be reversible. And probably are at age fourteen. They started giving large doses of hormones. They give testosterone two girls estrogen boys and the changes that happened to the body at that point in time reversible and you can give enough testosterone to a fourteen year old girl that she grows a beard. She doesn't go back to looking like a girl or having the appearance of a girl when you stop what you've done is permanently altered her body and this should not be done to a fourteen year old with or without parental consent but absolutely shouldn't be done to override parental lack of consent. And what do you think if you're able to speculate is behind trying to subvert parental consent when it comes to this we've all been fourteen years old. We all know teenagers. We understand the frontal lobe is not even developed. There are a lot of ramifications that we don't even know when it comes to these kinds of processes. Rachel levine even said that there should be accelerated process for. I think what we're called strea- kids why. Why are we trying to y trying to go around what seems to be only buffer between these kids and procedures. That could have lifelong negative consequences. I think it shows you. There's nothing mainstream about the biden administration. He ran on this concept that he was class. Joe he had middle class working class values. While i tell you what you go to union worker in boston that he thinks he represents or a union worker in kentucky and you ask them should. Your little girl are lured. Boy be given hormones against your wishes. People are going to kick you out of their house. They wouldn't talk to you. They won't be associated with you if you believe that. So the democrats are over reaching here. But biden's the people by zero or the far left. This is an extreme view. There are not very many democrats in the country. Frankly who think that a child at ten can make this kind of decision or a job at fourteen can make this kind of life changing decision so i think the democrats are making a mistake here and this is a a very very extreme position. These people also advocate when a ten year old goes in. Actually the ages are even less than that. Ten percent of the kids go into these clinics are between the ages of three and ten. They go win and they say they get psychological. Counseling and my question is who gives them the counseling. Well other people who've already decided to change their sexual appearance through surgery hormones. You think they're getting advice from anybody who says hey wait a minute. You don't need to be doing this. This is really extreme now. They're hearing only one side. Because who works in these generators forty clinics people who are advocates for this kind of thing and so you know the child get sort of groomed in a way the child is you know everybody says. Oh you're so brave and everybody loves the child for making the decision. The child just sees all this attention in once more and who are left alone. American college of paediatrics has looked at this about ninety percent of kids who are left alone not given medical intervention. And not given all this firming. All these people telling them that this is a great decision. Just leave the kid alone. Let them grow up. Ninety percent of the kids end up saudi. It was just a phase. Well we've certainly seen not just in this area. But in a lot of areas especially over the past year the exchange of actual science for scientism this kind of ideologically driven pseudoscience to back all far left policies and agenda items that this new form of the democratic party has the last thing that i want to talk to you about. We talk a lot about education. The public school system school. Choice on this podcast. You just introduced the school act. Can you talk a little bit about that. What this does is. There's already federal money to goes to poor kids. He goes to the school district where a poor kid goes to school. What i'd like to say is the money goes to wherever that child or their parents choose to go to school so we have a lot of failing public schools particularly in urban areas particularly for poor kids. They've been failing not just last year. The year before for decades generations of kids are growing up in the inner city and getting a crummy education and never getting ahead in life. I'd let the parents to take the kid out of a failing school. Go to another school and then this money would follow them. What would happen is either. The school will get better or they'll go out of business but the thing is i've seen the results of this. I've been two boys. Latin school in philadelphia up into girl school in chicago where the kids come from poor broken homes from neighborhoods infested with drugs. And guess what when you give a good education. They thrive they look in the. I shake your hand. These are the kind of kids that it boys. Latin school virtually. All of these young men go to college whereas the public school. It's probably a five or ten percent level and probably half of those flunk out these kids go to college. It works education's the great equalizer but not gonna work just keep saying go to the crummy school that Democrats are willing to provide for you and they keep you poor and they keep you Unsuccessful but we have to do something better. And i'm a republican who believes it. Everybody should get a choice on where they go to school. Yes and amen. We agree with that on this podcast. Thank you so much. Senator paul for your time. I really appreciate you talking to us. Thank you all right before we get into what i want to talk about next. I do wanna mention something. So you might have noticed that. Senator paul did use female pronouns for i. Rachel levine as you may know since we talked about this a couple of weeks ago. Rachel levine is a man who dresses as a woman. We've also talks about the use of pronouns as christians. We do not believe in bearing false witness and we also believe in genesis one they got made them male and female that he made us male and female in a purposeful in a loving and a wonderful intentional way that we think him for and that there's not any gray area when it comes to that and we believe that loving our neighbor and loving people who identify as transgender is something that we are absolutely called to do but god defines what love is the same god who defined gender insects are in genesis. One one which is male and female is also the god that is love. The bible tells us so if that god who is love a says something is true says something is then agreeing with god and proclaiming. What god says is good. And what god says is true. And what god says is right is also love so it is not love to simply take on the definitions of what the world says his love when it comes to preferred pronouns and when it comes to so-called gender identity ideology but rather it is the most loving thing that we can do to agree with god to speak the truth in love gently and as kindly as we can continue to be hospitable to continue to be selfless service minded to all of our neighbors no matter who they are how they dress We have talked about this. I'll put a link to a past episode on in the description of this the biblical loss of gender where we talk about all of these very complicated issues from a biblical perspective. So i do encourage you to go back and listen to that if you have any questions before we get into the rest of the episode. I am so excited to tell you about a new sponsor. This has been a few months in the making. And i finally get to tell you guys about this awesome company and that is currently gene los angeles so currently do in los angeles is an la based capsule clothing companies. They sell really wonderful. Timeless staples and their style. Cartilage in los angeles is my style. They sent me a whole bunch of clothes.

They've got all kinds of stuff dresses and love the dress that they sent me all weird that one soon in thankfully what they said me i can. I can wear while. I'm pregnant. And after i'm pregnant everything that they have is just so adaptable so flexible for really any kind of style. I myself i'm a simple gal. I don't like a whole lot of loud colors and patterns and things like that nothing against that. That's just always how. I've been into carly los angeles really is my exact style. I love them.

They've got great customer service as well as if you have any questions or any issues or anything like that but go to carly gene los angeles dot com use promo code alley for twenty percent off anything in store. I i want to do this. Funny story. I wanna talk about this pastor. Who who his sermon kind of went viral. Because he was telling people That as as a woman that you have to look hot that you can't look. I think the word he used was butch and that you need to be a trophy wife for your husband and so. I think it's really important for you to not. Just listen to this but to get on youtube. Actually watch this because it just makes it even funnier. I'll play it for you now. Then i want you to know a need. That a man has he won't ever tell you built. But since i'm the preacher man i'll say it. Your man needs an attractive. I'm not saying every woman can meet the epic the epic trophy wife of all time. Like mulanje trump. I'm not saying that at all. Most women can't be trophy wise but you like her. Maybe you're maybe a participation trophy. I don't know but all i can say is not. Everybody looks like that a man. But but you don't need to look like a butch either. There's no you know this man have a need for their women to look like women. Right ye yes. I do. See how men have a need for women to look like women. I think comparing comparing our value or placing our value in our looks and comparing people to melania trump in holding milania trump up as what women should strive to be. But if we fall somewhere under that like it's okay. I think that that is so superficial. I do not think that's any kind of message that the church needs today. Like i just think that there are so many other messages that women need to hear from the bible and according to the gospel and that is absolutely not one of them. Let me read you. This passage from i peter three three through five do not let your adorning be external the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold or jewelry or any clothing that you wear but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit. Which in god's sight is very precious for. This is how the holy woman who hoped in god used to adorn themselves by submitting to their own husbands. So it goes on to talk about the godly nature and the godly attributes of a woman of a wife. Ultimately this is going to be what attracts a man to you is going to be the godly and the gentle spirit within you. Of course. I don't think gentle says you can't have opinions obviously am very opinionated person. I don't think it means that you actually have to be. You actually have to whisper when you speak that. You have to be soft spoken in that way. But a form of humility and submission to the lord desire to live a godly. life is going to be ultimately. What attracts the husband. If god has called you to be married. What attracts batman to you. Now that said do. I think that it's wrong to to wear makeup and to get highlights into brush your hair and put your hair up to want to look pretty for your husband now at all. I do think that that is a form of love. And of course we do know that men that they are more visual than women are and of course. It's wonderful to feel beautiful to feel attractive into feel appealing to the person that you love that something that we all desire and i do think it's important for us for men and women to put in to put an effort when it comes to simply making sure that we are properly maintaining you know fitness and hygiene and things like that because we know that our bodies are a temple and we do so to glorify god not to earn the approval of other people. I do think that the priority needs to be placed though on external beauty. The fact of the matter is is that we're all going to age. That are weight is going to fluctuate that our ability to keep up with the trends are even look good in certain trends Is going to change. And what lasts is that abiding love and companionship and covenant commitment that a man and a woman have that doesn't mean that physical attraction goes away or that it should go away. I don't believe that it should but women don't need to be focusing on melania trump or being any kind of trophy wife and quite frankly if you watch the video. I think that this guy is a little bit hypocritical for trying to call out women for how they look. Women also care about appearance and fitness when it comes to mend to a certain extent too but the bible is clear that what is most important. What last the longest. What pleases god. The most is not anything external. But what's going on in our hearts are godliness. Our our holiness our submission to the lord our love. Our gentle spiritedness are selflessness. Those are the things that god approves of that. God loves that. God delights in whether or not we meet worldly standards of what it means to be beautiful and so i just think it's important because i think it's so easy to listen to a sermon like that and to be discouraged because maybe you don't like how you look when you will marry like maybe you make a lot of efforts to to be attractive and to feel beautiful and you're still insecure and your self self conscious you hear something like that and you wonder well. Am i ever going to be able to attract someone. Like am i ever going to truly be able to be seen as beautiful by anyone to guy even think that i'm beautiful and god is so gracious and and so loving merciful and so tender towards that he tells us look it's not about the external adorning. It's not a doubt that. I created you as someone thirty nine says so beautifully so wonderfully so intentionally and what i care about is that you're cultivating the spirit of christ likeness inside you by the power of the holy spirit. That is so encouraging and so much more edifying than this stupid superficial sermon that this pastor gave so i just wanted to clear that up if you were a woman who saw that and you were discouraged by that you felt put down by that. God has a different word for you in scripture like he has something different to say we can look to jesus we can look to god the father to see the gentleness and to see the love and attention and care that god that god shows in particular towards women and that's why the church has for so long. Been a refuge for women. That's why the church for so long has been the place where women can find solace and women can find the kind of security. they're trying and failing to find in the world and it should be that until pastors should create churches that way ministries should create places that way that make people who are looking for clarity who are looking for true selfless godly love. Who are looking for actual value. That comes from their creator. The people who are looking for those things and they can't find them in the world. The church needs to be a place that offers that alright. There's a couple more quick topics that i want to talk about. Maybe i'll just have a chance to get to one of them. But i want to tell you about another sponsor that i've talked to you about once before and not is ray con. So if you are someone who has you have not made the jump to wireless headphones like you're still using those dangling wire headphones you'll understand what you are missing out on and i know i'm going to sound hyperbolic but it really is.

And you get fifteen percent off your entire recon order so go to rake by recon dot com slash alley by recon dot com slash alley for fifteen percent off your entire order all rate that was once object. I just wanted to make sure that it covered this week. And then there's one more that i want to end on. It'll lead us into our final bit of encouragement. And so i the bad news you guys. We've talked about james coats. We've talked about the pastor from alberta being placed in jail because he refused to limit the capacity of his congregation to fifteen percent. He allowed anyone to come in. Who wanted to come in here. The gospel and here expository preaching in person and for that he was arrested. They have tried to get him out of jail but unfortunately he's in jail at least until may had his wife on the podcast. Last week we talked about all the details of this before. That is well so go back and listen to those episodes. We also talked about. I think it was monday. How there was a child. Sex predator in the same city that was released from jail without any without any conditions to speak of. He had been guilty several times of preying upon molesting sexually assaulting six and ten year. Old kids in this community he gets put in jail and because the laws are so loose. When it comes to this in the name of criminal and social justice he's just been released into the community with nothing except a tweet warning from the police department. While there's been another sex predator that's been released in the same city i without any conditions and so this is yet another convicted child sex predator that the edmonton police service issued a warning about his name is russel. Saikia i don't know how to pronounce his last name. According to this report he's a history of breaking into homes. And sexually assaulting women he also has a history voyeurism and breaking into the homes of women including minors when they are sleepy into this person who has been arrested. He's been put in jail now. He's been released without conditions because as we talked about on monday. The process for getting out of jail has a bunch of different factors. That don't actually have to do with protecting the community or protect potential victims are pass victims at all. It is all in the name of compassionate in the name of social justice and we talked about how social justice fails us. It's not god's definition of justice and we have to be so careful about this. This is also evidence that elections matter politics matter politics matter policies matter because people matter policies affect people especially the most vulnerable. And you'll remember something. That aaron coats said the pastor of james code last thursday's that she didn't really know how the political processes worked like. She wasn't completely aware of all of the all of the charter rights in their area. And what they all meant in so whenever we have the temptation to bury your head in the sand. Because we don't want to think about politics and we just politics is just a losing game and that it doesn't matter look part of loving. Your neighbor is making sure that their policies that are in place that aligned with god's justice that allow them the freedom to provide for themselves that work in the way of their security and because these policies affect them these policies affect them policies matter because people matter which means politics matters so we can't just bury your head in the sand and pretend like politics. Don't matter they do. They do matter now for all of the people who have been saying. This is not really persecution. James coates just needs to limit his congregation to fifteen percent. He just needs to bow down to caesar and to say okay. Sorry you guys can hear the gospel in person today. You're not allowed to hear the gospel. Oh you need to in person counseling. Asari we just hit are we just hit our capacity for fifteen percents. Oh you're lonely. you're depressed. You're struggling with alcoholism. Your husband just left you. You're a single mom. Sorry we've reached our capacity. You can't come in our doors today. That's what the state expected him to do. And there have been christians in the united states. Who have said yeah. That's what he should have done. Amazing to watch and by amazing. I mean severely depressing. They just say well he. He violated these restrictions. He violated these regulations. Are you going to change your to now that we have seen in the exact same city that to sex predators have been released into the community without any conditions. Are you really going to tell me that. He's not being treated differently than anyone else. Because he's a christian or if that's not persecution than what is like. what do you consider persecution. Do you have to live. In iran to to be persecuted you have to attend in underground church in china to be persecuted second timothy three twelve to thirteen indeed all who desire to live a godly life in christ. Jesus we'll be persecuted while evil people and impostures gone from bad to worse. Deceiving i'm being deceived Thankfully it doesn't matter whether or not people on twitter and christians who desperately wanna lick the boots of of state officials. It doesn't matter whether or not they think that this is persecution. I think our definition of persecution should expand. No one is saying that what's happening to canada. Canada is the exact same as what's happening in the middle east to christians was happening in china. No and say that. It's the exact same thing. And that's It's the exact same danger in the exact same payroll in the exact same kind of suffering. No one is saying that. We're just saying they're different. Forms of persecution. Second corinthians four sixteen through eighteen says this so we do not lose heart though our outer self is wasting away. Our inner self is being renewed day by day for this light momentary affliction is preparing for eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison as we look not to the things that are seen but the things that are unseen for the things that are seen are transient but the things that are seen are eternal. And i have heard john piper preach on this and he says whether it is whether it's slander criticism or whether you are actually becoming some kind of martyr whether you are tortured or arbitrarily imprisoned for sharing your faith all of it all of it counts as something that is building for us. An eternal weight of glory that far outweighs all of the heavy or light afflictions that we are enduring here on earth. Why are we quibbling over whether or not james coats is enduring are definition of persecution. The fact of the matter is he shouldn't be in jail. He shouldn't be in jail. Because it's not god's definition of justice and what we're seeing is corrupt social justice. What we're seeing is people taking god. And his definition of justice out of the picture giving grace in nuance to child sex predators by releasing without any kind of conditions but keeping the pastor in jail because somehow he poses more of a threat. I think we've seen something like this before. It's almost like the corrupt human heart does not change and yet we do have hope matthew five ten says blessed are those who persecuted are those who are persecuted for righteousness sake. Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness is sake for theirs. Is the kingdom of heaven james. One two three four count it all joy not just be okay with it not just tolerate it but count it all joy my brothers when you meet trials of various kinds for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness inlet steadfastness have its full effect that you may be perfect and complete lacking in nothing so again we see that persecution build for us good things like how gracious and good and wonderful as god that he doesn't just say okay endure it figure it out tolerate it for a little bit. It'll all be over soon and then you won't have to deal with it anymore. He says no. This is actually productive. It's doing something it's doing something eternally not just something but it's doing something good and glorious beyond your wildest imagination and you have hope and you have join knowing that every time. You are persecuted every time someone slanders you every time someone mistreats you because of your faith or mistreats you because you are following the lord that it's not for nothing that it's doing something for you. It's doing something. For god's glory in the bible tells us that we get to rejoice over that and so in the midst of all the craziness that's happening right now as we are seeing christianity being categorizes. Something that it's not being condemned as harmful in violent and wrong even in the midst of all that even in the midst of hostility which the church has always seen by the way since its foundation we can rejoice and we can know with confidence that as jesus said the gates of hell will not prevail against the church. The word of god is not going to fail that the gospel is not going to stop advancing. I mean there's one thing that i do agree with when it comes to john. Macarthur stance on religious liberty is that we can have all of the restrictions on religion in the world. The church is going gonna stop. We're not going to stop and let us rejoice over the testimony of james coats that he is willing to persevere and that way let us pray for him. I hope that some of you who have been so hard hearted in this situation are beginning to soften and at least that you would open your heart to pray for him praying for his family but let's rejoice together. Let's rejoice in. What's happening that god is going to be glorified that the gospel is going to be shared. That god's kingdom is going to be advanced. Jesus christ same yesterday today and forever is going to prevail that one day he will rule imperfect peace. There will be a new heaven. There'll be a new earth. There will be no more evil. There would be no more wickedness. There will be no more earthly governments. There will be no more manipulation. No more sickness no more sorrow. We rejoice over that. That's our hope that's victory that we can no absolutely for sure and we can have complete and total confidence that what we are called to do right now is to love god. With all of our heart mind strength to love our neighbor as ourself to pray without ceasing to wait fervently impatiently for the coming of our lord and until then we have joy. Alright that's what i want to end on today. I will be back here on monday.

I think that was because we made that with. Our jokes still stands up very hilarious. Here's the one thing that i remember. Nbc this is on msnbc now but people used to defend him in earnest. No he's one of the finest broadcasters we have. This is real journalism brian williams and conservatives like myself back in two thousand nine with a blue bedsheets if now listen if you think that brian williams is my god actual journalists you probably think the same about walter cronkite people bought wholesale and now that he's msnbc. He's free to peddle. His opinion lies and conspiracies. That are allowable big tech. That's unbelievable so. I don't know i just remember. We were supposed to that. He was national journalist until he got caught in a lie. That was so agreed. They doing knowledge it kind of like chroma which will get to the helicopter. Lie which is a lot to live. He didn't even start small. He's saying you were like in the towers during nine. Eleven years ago. I was there man. I was there you geraldo me jumping out the window. What i just did a somersault right. When i hit the judo break falls you ever seen that phone. Men cliff was shot at over iraq. It was about to say something. About ron johnson statement like he was reading a statement from somebody else. He was just claiming that the crowd was made up of a diverse cross section of people. Some people were unhappy. Some people were very happy that translated from russia. Yeah much like watching. My young daughter performing depraved sexual acts on the worst series age because ever seen. I can't even describe it because it's so disgusting girls girls. Yeah oh that was his daughter. And i can't even tell you what she did on it by the way you can follow the instagram dimitra. The best thing you can do is just as a show you tune into Monday through wednesday ten am eastern because you know algorithms and all that all the rap We wanted another one. I guess with twitter since we've been back but you can support us at my cluttered. It comes that's michael fight like hell is the promo code. You get thirty dollars off last day so we have a lot to get to. I do want to know why you guys think that. Even the media's turning on cuomo now that's kind of the question of the day. I guess is it because they don't have a common enemy and trump anymore. It is surprising how quickly they're acknowledging just the depths of his. It is playing with their grandparents. That could be it. They think he murdered. They missed me mom. You know what's happening right now. The lesser cuomo on. Tv is like this is my chance to supplant him. He's going to break this story. It my brother was wrong. He's not he's going to have him on with a giant doing gallagher stick. Did you ever see most harassing seattle. All news but before we get to the ears again this a cavalcade of former presidents and current president's and reporters and they've all worked together. It's an incestuous relationship. Because now barack obama. And bruce springsteen oh have a spotify podcast and this is so rogan's jr according to spotify the show called renegades who hold on. Friday renegades called watch in the usa. Look barack obama was a junior senator about whom we know nothing. We don't even have his college transcripts. Likely a diversity. Admission okay who has never worked in the private sector his entire adult life. I don't think you could find a more inappropriate name then renegade well also lorenzo lamas had a show renegade. Let's just chips. I think that might called renegades. Or and. And bruce springsteen yet barack obama and bruce springsteen who's biggest hit the big adversity selling mentally that he had to overcome his dad unplugging his guitar when he didn't wash the dishes he's been famous since he was sixteen years. Old rain huppert middle class family. Yeah from a smile. No you're not even seen a folk in four years. They both had a tough life. Stephen so according to spotify the show called renegades born in the usa. We'll discuss race fatherhood marriage and the state of america. This press release with the first two episodes premiering today for free and then premium spotify us. I guess get it ad free and we actually have exclusive audio of one of their episodes recordings. Yeah you can listen to exclusive on spotify now not now. Where did you get the inspiration for a born in. The usa in the usa was quite a bit more than that. You wouldn't get just nigerian france. It was born in kenya. Hawaii fighting scarver. You want to go. I can't believe you this drunk ofo one white cloth right. It's time for in not up now. That's not bruce even to fund the police yet z. Call well disaster. Sounds interesting. they started it before. Some of the recent press releases yeah cheap. It'd be pissed with immediate. And now he was acquitted though charges were dropped. I don't think that's an acquittal. I think it was just dropped. Had many and bruce springsteen apparently had very few. That's the saddest part of that story. Either that he only had one shot or that. He lied about having one shot. You have an image to upkeep. Boss should if he's by the river drink and he should have been like. I hit thirty years ago. He's a renegade renegade never shot walkman renegades like one man. You teenage daughter could drink me under the table. Seagram have cooler off dizzy. Seen those commercials back in the nineties bruce with us for the wine coolers i lost job to him that he believed that man. yeah Before we move onto cuomo. It's black history month. We appreciate your brothers and sisters. This is the last show of black history month. I won't be able to do that when you are talking about raising the roof Give us your give us your Some information black issue with one. We'll give you a little history fact. Here he changed his voice. I was ill and i did not. That's not how genetics work up just so that you can shout. The words hot sauce sauce. Wasn't that her catchphrase. When hillary did it will end up. It would do a joke and then go. Kamala harris say i work at mcdonalds. Cream screen reload. Yes those are two things at macdonalds. Also ask cream machine similar around in other words that people can identify. So you don't have to explain your checkered past fish. Fillets to pocket nineteen seventy s. He was big in the seventies turned around. Joe biden. don't worry. I won't talk that a bunch of why it's not not listening to black man. He tried some fast transient. Okay give us information. Keep it keep it all right. Islamic slave trade actually lasted one thousand years longer than the european slave trade. That's true and muhammad is very racist to my black brothers extremely racist. He wasn't prolific racist and a slave trader. Also people say he was very white. House ability brings us You know because there's a convergence here black history month two of the day show dave's face 'cause there needs to be some buying for him to your almost forty three. I heard a strategy. I heard the. I heard the apostle say whoever wants to see satan should look at nob tol. He was a black man with long flowing hair inflamed eyes and dark ready cheeks. Nine sixty one. Gabriel came to muhammad and said. Oh my god. This is bad for even meter read. If a black man comes to you. His heart is more gross than a donkey. Wow wow what else is nuts. Whole little richard. If he goes up up a lou bop screwed go jerry carols and mustache. He's satan y- the color of candy and possibly boys much like a lot of us. You know what. I'm talking about as you made me this way. You boys pledge. Let's move onto andrew. Cuomo surprised how quickly they throw him under the bus. Hopefully it has been great. Hopefully it happens with whitmer. Hopefully no one else has. No one else has talked about or cuomo before we really were and no one else has been talking about whitmer. that's just because michigan's our home state. I wonder how long it'll take for for it to catch on their because whitmer is worse than any other governor. You could also argue. Were gonna get to rachel levine. A little bit Track record in pennsylvania almost as bad as cuomo but inverted penis. And we don't talk about it. So in december this is romo now. Now komo's accused of sexual harassment and i wanna be clear. We don't know this. And i'm not saying that he's not saying that he's guilty. I wanna want to To the same standard idea when people come out with false allegations with anyone else. But it's it's but it's funny so i'm going to cover it so lindsay sleeping sexually harassed by governor cuomo for years and what's funny. Is you have a cuomo. This is he responded to it recently. There's more to it afterwards. Because part of his response only actually accidentally corroborated her story. Which is why. I think it's probably true but i can't make that claim just like the election. No foul play. Here's cuomo responding. Yeah i heard about the tweet and what it said about Comments that i had made. And it's not true zach Look i fought for. And i believe a woman has the right to come forward and express her opinion. That's about his defense. Is the old santa from miracle on thirty fourth street with a cane back for all. All i did was tell her. I make a nice sausage in my pants down also. My penis was hoagie roll. But i'm governor perks so boylan then wrote a very detailed article. Yeah on medium. Let me give you some of this information. She included an email. That was center relaying. Cuomo's message to look his former girlfriend. Lisa shields because she and boylan could be sisters and then cuomo started calling her lisa in public. Oh then boiling. Suggested they play strip poker on his private jet. That's funny games. Yeah come on boiling then said that cuomo quiz kissed her on the mouth after one briefing in his new york city off. He's italian yes no with his brother. Yeah he also sent out a tweet. I don't know if you remember during the break cabin investigation saying that. We should trust that. We should coming for that age right. Well here's the thing i know and i and i always say look. This doesn't need to be taken with a grain of salt for example like we've talked about the brian cowen situation. Of course then. They worked together for four years so young. Okay well listen. This is a very long time ago. There's no proof. And if there's there are no receipts. It is very difficult to just take it on. Faith and his people are innocent until proven guilty. She wrote these articles and she included some information. Some corroborating information. Like i said the texts like i said some of the emails but as far as receipts those were provided by governor cuomo. Because then he tried to deny these galaxy brand man by releasing the flight logs saying look the flight logs earn. I weren't alone and she just wants i second. I never once said that. I said that we were in the flight at that time. So all he did was confirmed her time that she was on the plane. So it's just it's just a horrible defense. Look at our activity board for that flight dinner. Yes strip poker straight. Yeah where he just lost in was naked the whole time which was awkward. Rain fully clothed governor. Why'd you have to buy three hoagies. We had to do dress rehearsal a river. Can you imagine being his publicist right now. Doing damage girl like no no no. No no. don't really at least fifteen. So i tend. I tend to believe it. Also here's why and this is totally your say. Let me be clear. I tend to believe it. Because he's a lying piece of shit and because he didn't really. This is the kind of action someone who didn't know that they were actually corroborating story of someone who has had no accountability in public. Office has been sort of coronated by the media. You see what happened with cove until the only reason we know about the cova scandal. The only reason the left us media covered it is because one of senior. Staffers admitted it again. The the defense there think about that for a second the defense was we were scared. It would be used against us somebody in his corner that wants him to go down ice ready when i was a kid. We heard some kids say to his parents like as an excuse when his parents parents about the discipline them. Yeah same was jeffrey and he said dad. I didn't do it on purpose. And we misheard it and so for about four months because my dad didn't want to let us know because he thought it was funding. He's bank is harder. We would say. But dad i did it on purpose. He's goes. that's what i thought over my night. We didn't hear the didn't that's from cuomo. We thought it would be used against us that we killed a bunch of seniors on necessarily what now we have to use it against you. Hopefully kill all of you figuratively right. Now if you're widmer are absolutely counting your lucky stars that you have california and new york governors. That are worse than you. You're shaking your long stockings at roll up under the house. I'm lucky stars. You mean elderly. People she yes. Well that's euphemistically. yes referring to. When she was worried she can't sleep. She counts dead gramma instead of. She sleeps upside down like a bat. Yeah he looks like she looks like she might demon with fiery demon in the sack. Wait that's worse trying to cover up. Because demon could be considered some kind of regis accusation. She killed old people in cold blood. How about that yeah. That's yeah that's better even might show up that thing from pan's labyrinth might be like. Ooh that's a bit much mitch. Mcconnell supposed to carry all of these. I'm gonna need another hand. Trend down here is go small. This is the worst way to see. Where's your crematorium touched yourself with hands. It makes more sense to just keep them where they were slow news. What you get were you about to say the. I'm not surprised. this is happening. Tacoma the evidence is just overwhelming. What i am surprised it took this long. The evidence has been there the entire time and writing a book about him and saying that. He's you know time's man of the year. Something like that for his handling of. This wasn't enough. Make you go away. Well here's the thing is is. They have to screw up. That's what happened like angela. Right they were about to cues. Andrew breitbart with the anthony weiner. They have to screw up and let a picture slip out. A staffer has to screw right. Just say well we would be used against us. Cuomo himself has to screw up and provide receipts that he sexually staff. And then you have people like to lasy. I'm not saying that this guy is all sudden a man of stellar character. No but he feels that he has some cover from the media that him and called for a full investigation now into the nursing home policy so they didn't want to call the investigation in nursing policy when it was happening but now that gives them the cover they feel like oh okay. Well now we can now. We can actually do our jobs well. They see a sinking ship. And they're jumping off like good rats. Do right yeah also stay and said hey wasn't able to handle covert patients and you turn it away was another one hold on a second busy playing. Grab ass cuomo sounding. I don't even know what's going on here. She i don't know the voice. I just know that he wrote a book while people were talking about how great he did. Who do you like in the middle of a pandemic going how. I beat the pandemic. You didn't but that's the only reason the staff that's the only reason we find out. He wrote his book called it. Mine counts you're like this is just the name. And they're all talk. Eighty lots of pages and senator ron. Kim suggested that cuomo be impeached. After the nursing home deaths by the way hit notification bell really quickly subscribe because subscriptions. Don't mean a whole lot right now Cnn there is tug on the capital actor. And there's not a whole lot going on. So i wanted to talk about because i realized i think has happened when we were on. Break the official. Pick for this person you know. Don't hit the third rail. Okay youtube z. Doctors doctors doctors e doctor z reverse a penis hating degree. That that's fine. That's fine say. Just don't use biologically accurate terms. I was being serious. You have to know where your heads add. Let's try and go. Let's let's try some real momentum and banana okay all right so it's time now for The diversity higher the week you may not know a whole lot about rachel levine. Because we don't know a whole lot about assistant secretaries to anything ever. I don't even know that they've officially picked the actual the actual secretary for the department of. Hhs have they picked the actual one. They've the assistant secretary. I wonder why which isn't a secretary and assistant. How does the secretary getting assistant. That's why i don't think you understand. Where does saucy dawn. Who drinks too many martinis there. So rachel levine. Biden's assistant secretary for the department of health and human services of course wednesday's not moonlighting as senate minority leader. We know that that is all come on now. that looks. Well rachel levine. Mitch mcco if mitch mcconnell were a battered wife with to shiners vigneault. You work doing dairy alright. Bake it meredith baxter mcconnell. That's tell me it doesn't okay. I'm a child. But tell me i'm wrong. Dinner must have been freezing. So here's the thing. it's not that levinas trans. I wanna be clear because this is something. We've people used to give us like this. Why why do you focus so much on the trans issue. Because at one point they were really pushing it hard. I think actors for the first time we have more people identify as trans than lesbians. Real one point. Eight percent of the population seth. I don't have this at the right. But i think you can probably find at some point or someone in the control room. One point. eight percent of the population identifies as trans. And i think it's one point two now. Identify as lesbian. So you know what's happening there. People are just confused. They're being told to transition because it wouldn't it wouldn't be so disproportionate with the increased number of gay and lesbian which have been relatively stable from millennial generation's yeah and now it's just booming explosion of trans and it's not that levinas trans focused on this for a long time. I know day we're both around. I just couldn't no cuomo joke if it was a joke. Just put in your back pocket. I'm sure it's gonna come in handy off and put it in the back and we'll talk about that for senator. No we'll talk about the procedure a little bit so we explain it for you can go wait Say why do you spend so much time on this. When they're look we've spent time obviously on voter fraud. Big tech is the most important issue. I think as it relates to certainly our job in the travel of information however more important than president is if if men and women cease to exist if we as a society no longer say that there are mothers and fathers daughters and sons sisters brothers and that there's a different way to rear them that there's a different way to treat them that they serve different roles in the family in helping their children that they can serve complementary roles in the community that we are inherently valuable indifferent. Which is as a christian what we believe fearfully and wonderfully created if we remove the idea of men and women if we make them fundamentally interchangeable i do believe that western civilization will what will cease to exist. I really do. That is the foundation. It's the bedrock. you cannot have a free country. You cannot have a country with minimal to no government intrusion without having smaller centralized unit so this is why all sorts of people. So why government. The mayor joining business. And i understand. I'd rather we have civil unions. The government at church out marriage. But this is why because we understood that with this country. And they made it to. Rachel levine. In the inverted pearson. A minute we understood even a five guys and got the hot dog and they cut it off stop. You're ruining the hothouse. So they understood. They understood that before. Federal government before state government. You had to have the family. You had to have a nuclear family and that these people had to have some kind of self governing principles and that means commentary. That means a mom but it doesn't mean that single parents up no look. There's obviously one parent is better than none. But we're talking about the ideal the foundation upon which we built society. And i do think that that matters more than anything else and especially when we also talk about speech laws and if you can be silenced or jailed and places like canada or the uk for using what is undoubtedly one hundred percent scientifically the appropriate biological term and was the appropriate term in the lgbt community. Until four years ago free speech ceases to exist. So are you starting to get the pictures to white matters to me. So much and Were you to say it's under it's under attack from every single angle too right now for. The nuclear family is the bedrock of civilization. You can look back to ancient rome and see why they started to fall with similar situations going on there and now the nuclear family. It's not saying like hey there's an alternative saying that's actually bad. We don't want that anymore. We want people to be on their own now. There is no fam. Let me take a step further here this. This is why this is so scared because what we used to talk about that. We're really relegated to pieces from. Vox vice or slate. Just go back through the history of this show. Now you have someone who's the assistant secretary to h h ask. Who actually is coming for your children. What do i mean by this. This person is as radical as radical can be and is the first publicly announced sort of. I guess you would say pseudo cabinet pick from biden because it was a rush to say look. We have trends. they want you in. This will become policy. Become hate speech to speak out against it. Rachel levine dr advocates. Putting your children and allowing them to on puberty blockers remember. Puberty was fun. Wasn't it wasn't that. Wasn't that a lot of fun going through the wrong if you're a young woman meaning male to female and and now you're getting your voices dropping. You're getting bigger you're getting hair everywhere and you're growing those tentacles and what if you're transgender young man. And now you have breast development in periods. It can be terrifying. Yeah so here's two examples so seventeen year old young man that i saw in clinic retreated treated him. He was given to muscular testosterone. He is now in his twenties and he's doing great sixteen year old young transgender woman. Even sprung lactone estrogen and transitioned and now is in graduate. School in early twenties ended absolutely fantastic. Oh well there you go. Yeah that's a man having a period. It's not go to the hospital. Your diction be believe. I'm sorry i think i hope don't get thrown off for that but if i look down in my splitting i'm rowling nine one. Yeah yeah and also the beauty is that it's an external organ so you have to go is blaming on the outside you know razor cut or figured kidney or could be some kidney damage or what. It's actually just an anal fissure or maybe it's milady parts coming in who knows and this is going to be taught to your children alongside. Hey remember we talked to. Hey you're gonna notice some changes. You're going to have here where there wasn't here before. And hey your voice is going to change being attracted to women also by the way your dick may bleed which mars will just be a vagina and you may be a woman and it's all the same and it's not okay and that's okay. That's not okay. But that's okay. It sounded like to me she was describing what the body was designed. Yeah i know but you understand what was wrong. Yeah totally wrong. Tentacles also confused because the hair. Obviously look at rachel levine. Look at the doctor too long you you will turn to stone. That's a scientific fact number four move onto blockers and why they're bad. This is just something that in the same clip. That i want you to see. This is how on ironically radical this person who is going to have a say in what you can and can't do with your own in your children's health as a legal parent this is how on ironically radical doctor levin is so if i said lgbt. I think that almost everyone in the audience would know. Would i need qa. How many people know what i mean. P p coming pan sexual polly sexual pan gender policy gender and there are lots of other terms to spirit and to one they spend the entire talking about different alphabet soup. Then that's the point. I could spend the entire forty five. I can spend the entire year trying to lay down. Land mines i walk backwards in regards to pronoun and the rest of society. Just wouldn't get anything done. We'll know exactly. It sounds like a plan. I now understand the points to all of this Tom foolery bullshit. I don't know the scientific nomenclature. I'm just doing my best z. Doctors as october. So let's go to the puberty blockers. I just want you to see that because people have actually tried to do. Take down to the channel going straw man liberals by saying lgbtq q. A i literally elliott. And i say i would say lgbtq a ip. Because i saw it at a film at a feminist film festival and two gay pride parades and now through this added to cues to la is artificial intelligence and this is clearly very real intelligence. Skynet sending their best. The sky net is not sending their best. Wait for version. Two point out. It'll be better sky that has fallen flash it okay. So let's explain why puberty blockers are bad. Okay let me explain. What the scientific literature. Lest you think. I'm committing hate. Speech like dom nighter opened a bakery adolescent got the lessons don't transition let's be really clear because they say oh puberty blockers. They say the kid realizes that they're not trans. You can just go off. The puberty blockers adolescents. Don't get on puberty. Blockers don't go through interests adolescents and children who claim that. They're trans ninety. Eight percent of them grow out of it. Ninety eight percent of them grow out of it. I know some saying single. Why you're acting like it's a good thing. Yep now greg. Here's why let me explain to you. I it's a numbers game. And i'm not even a we don't even have asian here now for those who do undergo puberty blockers so ninety eight percent if they don't undergo p blockers or hormone therapy for those who do zero percent zero percent dorada but now i understand. You're saying well that just means that clearly. The person who is on mind altering and i do mean mind altering when we know what we know about the doco system with hormones and neurotransmitters how often they are one and the same okay. So in order to be who they truly are the mind altering hormones are needed all right but let's still use that argument. Let's get to the real to the physical because people who are transgender are nineteen times more likely to attempt suicide. We know that. And it's about forty two forty. Three percent attempted suicide rates. Do you know what it is. After they transition about forty two forty three percent suicide. It doesn't get any better so you go from a ninety eight percent chance that your children will not be in the nineteen times suicide rate demographic to a one hundred percent if you put them puberty blockers chance that they end up in that one thousand nine hundred suicide demographic and i know you'll say no if people say the suicide thing well. The suicide thing is only because of how society history them. Well not according to that article that we talked about with fifty plan college female basketball because e said when i came out to my teammates they were shocked so it would change after transition right. We're not just talking about barely passable. it would change. It doesn't change. Yeah well and we've we've done several shows on this a not. Just talking about somebody in their teens. She brought up these two examples. Somebody who's seventeen or eighteen years old and they're now in their early twenty s. We'll give it time. I hate to say it that way but give it time. And let's see what happens when they're in the thirties. We're talking about five. Six nine year olds being celebrated being encouraged to be trans. Like it's just another thing to do right. It's like a toy you buy at the store. Just get that toy et. Be trans go for it. You can't halt somebody sexuality that's what puberty is growing into your own sexuality to take that away from them and tell them what the are before it makes absolutely zero sense understand. It's my opinion. no i understand. I also understand why. They advocate this before the age of consent. You can't consent to sex but you can make decisions that permanently alter and or damage your sexual function you the rest of your life. Well look somebody who's been suicidal like myself. And even more so as this conversation goes on i have to honestly say it. Depression is depression. You can't just put a label on it and go. It's the way society treated you. Depression and sadness are two very different things. Depression is a mental illness. It's one that i have. It's something that will make you kill your. It has nothing to do with it. That's not even a fair. It's not fair to say that that's how they were treated because everybody feels fought inferior. Certain way and you are boosting it up by doing that. I've talked about this before to someone who struggles with depression. Which maybe we shouldn't have the you and i in the studio together and there's a lot of ford's around american slaves didn't have an attempted suicide rate of that level. Wow jews holocaust didn't have a higher attempted suicide. Well let's be clear about that. The only group that does paranoid schizophrenics. Now you can't say it you say that it's similar for someone who believes something that is in direct opposites antithetical to their biology. By the way you know what happens. I know this is something these the same people who drink from epa free plastic. Which now isn't enough so they have to drink from glass right in anytime. You're at the gym. They have a glass bottle. And you're going to get the bottle. Don't bring it to the gym asset. Okay don't bring glass right. you're not going to grow tits because you're drinking from a bottle it'll be okay. But here's the issue what to avoid. Epa's to avoid zeno estrogens right in the atmosphere. People talk about chemicals. They say we know that it's cancerous when injected directly into a nine year old boys however well the scientists and yet we know what mex- estrogen does to the male body. It's not good. It's actually not as harmful as more testosterone for women but that's not good either because excess estrogen is banned for women. It is fatal cancerous ferment. We know it. Let's not act like the science in just say look. This is our agenda and we don't care if we put them into a very shallow suicidal or cancer. Ridden grave and try and then see if people believe. It's empathetic. i hate that. We are now turning a generation of kids into basically a study group right we have and we have a generation of parents who have basically said. I have no responsibility to help. My kids go through a difficult phase. Way okay fine. You're trans you. Feeling that way okay. You're you're you're whatever right you were just born this way. That's okay we'll just we'll just deal it instead of saying. Hey i love you. Let's work through this. The most caring thing to do would seem is to say. Hey let's let's make sure there's a ninety eight percent chance that things work out and guess what if it doesn't out by then fine if you're a liberal and you want to still let them do something when they're of the age of consent at sixteen fine. You can drive a car. You can chop off your pain. Yeah i say. But i would support my kid over absolutely anything. But just because he's six if he goes yeah. Hey i'm superman. I'm not going to throw them off a room. Yeah well let's see if that's true. Let's start by wearing some kryptonite courts. Work out how do you feel in the cape and your mother's. He'll by the way. I have this number of asking for gal from twenty twenty. Gen z and millennials Identify more trans and lesbian transgender. To one point four for lesbians for gen z and one point two point. Eight at eleven point. Five percent identifies bisexual. Which means that if it's equipped for both male and female that ends at eleven point five percent of the female population is trying to arouse some guys at a college. Frat party eleven point. Five percent of the male population is gay. So why are those numbers going up. Is it because they say it's because society and he's fifty six fine ninety s. Not even trying. I know. But i'm saying like two thousand to come on people like all of a sudden gone. We'll hell that sounds like a great idea. No of not in the nineties. I remember being in high school and them reprimanded me for single. Isn't statistically like if i don't do drugs and north america aids kind of gay persons disease and the eighties. That's what they told us. We grew up with that idea. Where like look if magic johnson skins knee. We gotta get them right off the court right. There could be mosquitoes that give it. You ignorant desire things political correctness. Don't say the gate saying don't say it now. There are billboards. I remember sitting in austin Not long ago. It's our disease. Let's take care of it because now they need. What's the new the new pill. The new pro commercial. Let me check. My bottle is just now. Every couple is gay right so listen. Let's just be honest about it. We're going to be honest about the science. Let's be honest about the science. Let's talk honestly. And i don't know why some people this is. This is where some people come to the right of attila. The hun you tell me. What comment calm you. Guys just comment. It's the best thing you can do to help out this algorithm slow news day. But this is something that really grinds my gears. Is it really more radical. When people are people say anti-science my position on climate. Change has always been consistent that you know what we don't know exactly what the climate pattern is. It is possible that humans are contributing to abnormal or atypical climate patterns. We don't know how catastrophic it will be and i certainly don't believe that Has the solution. That's more anti-science to you. Then penises are figment of your imagination. Come on let's. We're not no one's nine climate science. We're saying that we don't believe the five page green new deal that took me six. Sixteen minutes to read is actually going to fix the problem if we really are going to end up with skynet apocalypse and a skeleton hanging onto a chain link fence all i'm saying here. Is you know what i actually do. Think that there are exceptions. There are people who are intersex people who have climbed filters who by the way push you guys aside because they want nothing to do with the lgbt few a. i. e. p. according to your health secretary here they don't want to be associated within a well and by the way we're now saying okay. That's all that's well and good but we're going to give people who can't even determine their old bedtime the ability to legally be allowed to change susan kid and they asked me what i wanted to do when i grew up. I said i wanted to become a woman. So that i could be roomies with my brother forever because we lived in a bunk bed saw that my parents were opposite sex and i was like everyone who lives together our men and women like but how am i going to live with my brother. When i'm forty five. I know get the heels. Someone get the stilettos mom this day and age dave. You heard it here right. Stephen just came out as transgender should encourage it. he just came out as balcony bartok. So by the way. Here's a here's a doctor levine's Thoughts on psychological evaluations for children. Transitioning not needed. It still does recommend a psychological evaluation That's the science you want other types of hormone treatment if you want a need hormone treatment for menopause. You don't need to have a psychological evaluation a man in their forties fifties or sixties. And you need to stone Or viagra recommend psychological evaluation. Maybe they should but they don't And so and if you wanna nose job you don't need a psychological evaluation but if you want gender confirmation surgery you do. Okay i off. We're saying the same thing. Only your crazy so i just stigmatized. E d thanks for that does love a pearl necklace strategies though maybe they should. Okay hold on a second. I understand where you're coming from dixie. But let me you think. It's more unreasonable. For a man who has been sexually active his whole life and let's say is in his seventies and still wants to be intimate with his wife but because of age even though he sexually arouse the hydraulics don't work to take clinically trialed medication to assist him and his intimacy with his wife. You believe that should require a psychiatric evaluation but not somebody who wants to cut their penis and half like the five guys hot dog. I said i would fit in there and invert it and take ashtrays which of course would create brittle bones in cancer for the rest of their like. Am i hearing that right. Yeah i think one requires a psychological evaluation dismissive levinas by the way of the dsm five because keep in mind dsm. Four had gender dysphoric has a mental illness and then they change it to the. Dsm five so it's still not enough of moving goalposts. The dsm five now says it's not a mental illness. Gender dysphoric are the symptoms of someone born in the wrong body. But it's still not enough because they say because sometimes similar traits with other body. Just morpheus we recommend a psychological evaluation. Dsm five which really was running over backwards and not be hate. Speech is still hate speech. Wh oh no hot. it's inside. The debt should catch up Dorm don't worry. Part of the birds talk now. You would not get a nine year old nose job first of all right. So that's what she says is in comparison. That's not a comparison. You would not get facial reconstruction in. It was absolutely necessary right. The problem is as right. Now we're living in this culture where being a victim is the number one thing and parents want to seem like they're the most tolerant person in the world. So they're using their kids. As what i consider to be a form of munchausen by proxy at this point and i think people need to be open and honest about that being born gay being born. Whatever it is that you are is not the same thing as forcing your children to not be able to have a normal puberty normal sexual experience in a normal childhood right. I can't believe that this is even acceptable. And we all have to sit there and go yeah. She's dr hers right. Like what a great assistant secretary more she does. She gets straight coffees. She thinks people wanting a boehner the same people wanting to drop it off. You ever seen her operate a fax it just as transcendent. did you. Magin her hands fast. Forty two worth the minute sometimes palms mash the keypad. Here's my impression of somebody looking at effects at a christmas party that she made hanes five guys open. Can you imagine a rewind the like two thousand. Can you imagine us looking at this like in a movie. we'd be like now there's no way surge. Well no there were there. Were plenty of people like this in the movies like in the eighties in the seventy s. They were the truth right a bill. What bill whatever is now gave buffalo. Bill came out today. The entire theater would be like brave. So brave. Urge me joe. Yes we have to say that right. Yes we have to say. I as well would. What would that i would yes again. Beautiful tutsi from nebraska puberty blockers in the skit in the barrister shooter group. person okay. That was a little far. The guy with the great brings fa tax but around into a suit dr suess. Lgbtq q p. p. s. shoot maker. Can you believe we can talk. Well it's not my thing. But i don't want to be accused of hate speech. So why don't we go to your wealth Little arab by the way because this seemed free radical blockers puberty blockers but obviously go. Hey assistant secretary. There must be a resume. There must be recent. That dr rachel levine has been hired. Let's look at the resume. Funny buffalo bills airbnb sooner room. Or the whole. Oh you mean like room of the whole house down to a whole. There's a whole shows the water. So but how much of the whole house is. You could end up phrase before the word. I don't understand before bill are ever going to hear it. I'm really uncomfortable. Should be as one should sign the gisborne her. Did you hear from being a student. Turn housing and urban to role. What's in search in lee ratings secretary. It's the weirdest imitate rent control So let's go to the redmond. The resume of levin doctor levin. This is the reason that someone like. This is in the position to push policies. Right in coming down the pike were. You won't be allowed to prevent your kids from going on blockers. The resume of doctor levin well really all we have is worked in pennsylvania and in pennsylvania as a doctor opposed a bill that implemented a twenty week. Limit on abortions and band dismemberment abortions. We have see from a physician. My duty to my patients is to provide the most appropriate medical care. This legislation undermines that trust limits the ability of doctors to exercise their own judgment with regard to their patients. So we're talking about what's that somebody is that bryce bracewell's bryce calling bryce. Oh hey steven has it going. Why are you calling now. I must've Accidently dialed you. Were something but it's on your attention. We're in a show stunt for brendan's new stunt channel. We're starting to flip it around. And i'll show you show you what we're doing here is that i don't all right. Yeah but show and clear for we. This is a problem. This nice gentleman early on a show. I'm gonna brennan. Explain the stunt brandon channel I think a good debut would be this idea. I had where instead of using gramps. I'm gonna use a car. Don't know that's a bad. That's a horrible idea brandon angle to jump up on it and i don't have time for a stunt channel. You messed up an edit this morning. We're almost ready to go ready. Bryce stop them from doing it. Can you hear me. I don't think. I mr lee. You're all good to know. Stop let this happen on air. Bryce stop bryce. I have this has got no. Oh he fell asleep. didn't he. brennan brennan running you do all right. We can brandon. It's it's nothing. Oh my god come over here. Well i'm not primarily concerned with your employees causes damage. What do you do how you pay for it. Well the bus. I don't reimburse your car insurance should reimburse that mr conscious how can i get the cotton students. Okay well this is actually. It's perfect because our sponsor gabby actually. You're gonna gabby dot com slash crowder. You can compare your insurance plans and save a lot of money Gabby dot com slash credit in. Most people say nine hundred dollars on average is this are they. Are they still there. I don't like okay the point is with. Gabby i appreciate when i told him. I wanted to take initiative and do their own thing and can't do that no not anymore. We have a lot of indians. We need more chiefs gabby dot com slash crowder and people save like like. Did that with my car insurance. 'cause bank on all these car commercials they say. Hey save like fifteen percent and you're like how can they all say that because you always save money if you switch plans because all right. Let's go back to rachel levine. And someone check on brendan. Yeah asian drivers. Let's yeah idea. That's just my politics. The idea of abortion right twenty weeks so something. A little nutty. So let's go to rachel levine. Doctor levin has done in pennsylvania. How rachel venus helped their citizens pennsylvania by the way one of the worst covid rollouts in the country right as far as vaccine rollouts look at their plans and levin actually instituted a covert nursing home policy much like professional sexual assault or in chief andrew cuomo that force nursing homes to readmit positive patients. So so that's a bad thing to do right. as far as what's been under z's watch but dina what's really crappy is behind the scenes z. Doctor living removed dr rachel zone mother from a nursing home before. So it's kind of language or trading with demos. Yeah wait a tick thinking about this policy. Nursing homes are going to have to take into nursing homes will all have to take in sick patients. I don't want my mother nursing home okay. Can we take her out. Yeah exactly wow now just to tell you that you have no say in your children using puberty blockers. And they don't need a psychological evaluation if they want to have gender confirmation. Did you see the naming on very true cut funding to make puberty blockers like a scout leader. It was just really scared away. I can keep these this way forever. Annapolis supported it heartily. And what is the. I'm sorry. I don't mean to be bluntly honest honest and we left before and i agree i think about it. What would be the appropriate use like. Maybe if it's one of those kids with progeria whom. I don't know some sort of accelerated aging disease. Charlie brown special that was wildly unpopular. You have progeria charlie brown. No one watched it. There's some good dancing and if a little repetitive. So just more history. This isn't necessarily super relevant but We have a photo here of Rachel as a man with with went back then. Because i can say this his wife and children kinda hot kinda kinda you know. And then you wonder he was pete holmes slash jona hill slash welfare when he gains a lot of but now as a beautiful and brave Senate minority leader. I understand the transition now used to perform in musical theater. This isn't really relevant. Just thought it was funny. Transitioning picture last role was dr scott in the rocky horror picture show which we have an overlay here from the washington post It doesn't really matter. I just thought it was funny. I see no longer z. Has moved on to bigger. And better things you wanna hear from you guys. Where are you saying. What you think is most important. What you think is most important as far as the issues look. Let me be really clear with this. As far as it relates to the united states being singularly unique from other countries look first amendment second amendment. No other country has not like us. That's pretty important as it relates to the most important issues. I do think the idea of family being central building block before government is necessarily that means nuclear family Tech is a problem. People who control the entire sphere of information online. And then after that you know. Get the dementia patient out of office but those are always been my top issue. It's not it's not necessarily about state district lines. I think that the idea that men and women are actually thing pretty important and even if you don't believe it even if you don't agree with it you should. At least to take jordan peterson position. In believing that people shouldn't be compelled to use unscientific language. Yeah we've been doing this show. We've been doing this shaft to to make sure we don't run a foul of any guidelines. The third rail that are not enforced. Beautiful and brave beauty z. Was a bad idea. Speaking of guidelines the chief of the cherokee nation has now said that. It's time for jeep to stop using the name after nearly fifty years on the road. Jeep was pressured by the chief. The guy's name is the chief of the cherokee nation. Chuck host junior Junior we just had to. The car doesn't come in red. Yeah chuck hoskin. Junior is the chief of the cherokee nation. Probably only has one word for snow. Chuck hoskins junior chief. I love how he's the chief of the cherokee nation but using the word chief is. Hey what's your role chuck. Well many people call me the chief but you can refer to me as you may have seen me before at the end of the signing. That was dad so chuck hoskin junior year. I cry for labor pressured to change the name of its popular jeep. Grand cherokee suv. Because so they actually are doing it because according to the ho chuck chief of cheer host chuck have you met. Have you met the. Have you met the chief of the apaches bob. Don't get me started on comanche. Larry the arapahoe car who along bone tomahawk runs chunk so host junior. This is actually from car and driver. This is why he demanded it be change. It does not honor us by having our name plastered on the side of the car and by the way to the credit chrysler heard the first nations community And apologized and made amends with coming twenty one four by four jeep grand scalper so it seems a little bit. It's a slow news day. Air dynamic the blood splatters like an add on or does that standard where it no longer. It no longer comes in red and the stickshift will be replaced by a slot machine. You got to pay him back something we don't wanna run afoul of sheaf shock junior like the first time around you guys get made fun of for chuck being chief to girls it'll be one sixteenth cherokee forgot about the story she chuck. I mean look. Look look i on either. This is one of those one sixteenth cherokee. Who just you know elbowed an actual native american out of the way to become chief or it's a native american who changed my name to chuck because the white man makes me live this way with the chief changing back. If you're the representative from shock you're the head guy go lead. It's like having a chinese man. Who are our ambassador to china named. Note or larry to the chinese name makes americans feel better about themselves spotting in pants from puberty blocker boy would make them american named what are you. Keep to rachel levine. We can't weaned. Dick we're not allowed because our names are descriptive and we'd be banned from youtube. We it is one who rides with me. Ma who's been removed from the nursing home or not big fans of levin here But by the way we are doing an order for the nation drive. What would you like from five guys. Achy ghost if you smoke. This will appear in talks. Could you imagine by the way people just love that example. Where you have the left you. Rachel levine right these health secretary and they're constantly looking for victim class right. They also keep in mind. They also side right with his llamas. What do you think the first nations people would do with. There's no no no. No nan took. I'm not raising any san francisco queer guy. I should be a girl. I think you meant to say that you should walk up and slap the bears test of manhood. Go do that kick back. Take peyote first. yeah by the way. Hey assistant chief. Bob replaced the trained bear. Let's go a wild one out there. It's making a fair. All right chief assistant secretary. Brian who can we get Assistant chieftain flanagan here to make sure that we're just chuck and everyone just goes on here chief. Chuck norris cnn right now along with this Catfish with a goatee on the right. Or accountants chief highland berg. They would just be like yeah a first nations chief. Chuck may call you. Chief chuck chuck. Can i call you chief. Thank you chuck. I appreciate say don lemon stop blowing guys not feltler. Chuck let me ask you the peace pipe is it tobacco or is it. We'd at once. It was the fire leaf but we switched to windex. We have many paint. What my favorite clips ever. This is i knew. And then look we're gonna. We have a whole thing on hunter biden. We'll do that. We'll do that on my club only muslim but this is when i knew i was conservative. People say well you change you grow up. Maybe i'm just stunted. I'm pretty much the same. As far as how i see the world i've matured more experienced as when i was a kid. This is when. I knew that i was conservative. Okay i was raised in a christian household and so i tend to have those traditional morals right in that i guess now you say tomato men. Women are thing but i would watch. Tgif and i'd always trying you know. Skip sabrina the teenage which rose melissa joan hart talk about. You talk about depression. My i struggle suicide was then. They shoehorned that into tgif melissa joan hart every reactions to everything is what i like clarisa. She explained it very well. Clarisa explains ghost penis boy menstruation very this all might need to be updated. It's a little bit too much of an umbrella term. I don't know what the nielsen going to say about that. So i knew that i was conservative. Because after tgif twenty twenty to come on yes was it. Phil donahue and ed barbara walters. It was barbara walters Sure barbara walters and john docile. His give me a break segments k. The best and i didn't even know what a conservative or libertarian was. And i've had him on the show and i don't think he'll come back his pick last time we said. Hey mr styles would like to be in the show answer. no okay. he's that kind of it doesn't mean he's mad. You just very blunt so phillips. Sorry she did a segment. Did you used to watch. I did i did. Yeah he would talk to them like they were children and he did one on native american tribes and he was interviewing and i think the i don't think it was. This was this was pre chief chuck and he interviewed him and he said but hold honest he said but you are living with electricity running water. Well i do that. Because i'm not saying that. Everything from the white man is bad but they still have displaced us and changed our way of life and he goes what. You're wearing jeans as a kid. I was trying to catch my breath so hard. it wasn't an intellectual response. But and i remember we had the wrangler brett farve when he's not sending pit jeans. What you're wearing jeans. The cameras should like i wanna be. I wanna party with that guy. That's what i am. I don't know what this is. But i need more of that and i bought his biography. And that's how. I knew. I was a conservative. And you know what before. We go comment comment comment as you tell me what your moment was. When did you actually find out that you were sort of leaning right. I guess sometimes people use the term right red pill. yeah. I don't know but You know you can leave that blowing up. I'm hearing before we go before we go to youtube that we actually have exclusive audio okay. Yeah and here's the problem now because we get the right. Sometimes we don't get what we pay for a podcast with barack obama and bruce springsteen yeah women exclusive for next week. They're already scraping the bottom of the barrel. It's it's just it's just as dui tape he on your window please sir. Keir roll down the window. Mad got defies wrangler. Can you unzip your window police. What you wanna back to bloom. Bruce springsteen yeah. I was the you said. Okay i just need to see your license and how you re clegg. I just had one shot. There's just mean how many did you have.

GameStop and transgender rights: The privilege and cost of courageous compassion

"This is the daily article podcast published by denison forum or culture changing christians to receive the daily article directly to your email inbox. Week day morning. Visit the daily article dot com. Now here's today's news. Discerned differently occasionally in the daily article. I dress in issue. Only because everyone else's the game stop fuhrer is an example without getting into financial explanations about shorting stocks. That i barely understand. I'll point to the part of the controversy that is especially captivating interest little guy. Investors are making huge sums of money while large hedge funds. Are losing huge sums of money. You may not have a personal interest in the game's top story but this probably feels more relevant. According to cbs news us intelligence officials say chinese government is collecting americans dna. A chinese company called bgi. Group is the largest biotech firm in the world. It has offered to provide covid testing services in the us however they would collect dna from us as part of the testing protocol according to one counterintelligence officer they wished to do so in a race to control the world's bio data from the frightening to the tragic nursing home deaths from covid nineteen in new york. State may have been undercounted by as much as fifty percent prompting widespread criticism of the state's handling of the issue. Here's what these stories have in common. They point to our god given passion and compassion for the individual especially those who are marginalized and mistreated by those in power such compassion forms a backdrop for one of the more controversial decisions in the new biden administration ahead of his inauguration. President-elect biden made sweeping promises to lgbtq activists among them lifting the trump administration's ban on military service for transgender people. Barring federal contractors from anti lgbtq job discrimination creating high level lgbtq rights positions at the state department the national security council and other federal agencies reinstating obama administration guidance directing public schools to allow transgender students to access bathrooms locker rooms and sports teams according to their gender identity. President biden has stated that transgender equality is the civil rights issue of our time supporting legislative efforts to ban so called conversion therapy for lgbtq minors ensuring that lgbtq rights are a priority for us foreign policy by using pressure tactics including sanctions against foreign governments. That violate such rights providing healthcare coverage for gender confirmation surgery. He has begun acting in several of these pledges among them lifting restrictions and transgender americans who wished to serve in the us military. He's also nominated pennsylvania department of health. Secretary rachel levine as assistant health secretary. Despite criticisms of pennsylvania's failed covid performance. Doctor levin would become the first openly transgender federal official to be confirmed by the us senate for my book seven critical issues. I wrote a chapter length examination of the transgender debate. You can read for today. Let's focus on one reaction to the biden administration's actions the tasha's chartres is executive director of the women's liberation front which she describes as a radical feminist. She focuses on the government's order giving biological males who identify as women a- pathway to compete in female sports and enter women's only spaces such as bathrooms and showers. I encourage you to read her interview in its entirety. She raises concerns about the risk of injuries to females competing with biological males and girls being forced to shower with biological boys among other issues then she warns. This is an emergency. We know parents are losing custody of their children for failing to affirm a gender identity. We know that minors are being sterilized. We know that girls and young women are losing out on athletic in college scholarship opportunities. We know that women in domestic violence shelters in homeless shelters in prisons are being terrorized by men who've been allowed to identify as women and by officials who say. Hey it's out of our hands. He says he's a woman he has to bunk with you. We think this is an emergency and we would hope everyone in politics would support women's side in this. I appreciate the american impulse to protect and support the rights of minorities in this case the transgender population. And i want to state clearly that god loves all people whatever their sexual orientation or gender identity. We are all broken people. We are all loved by the god who is love at the same time. Transgender americans constitute only zero point six percent of our population. How do we also protect the rights of the majority scriptures clear. God made both men and women in his image women and men are equally loved by our lord across scripture. We find women serving his prophets judges evangelists and leaders. Children are loved and welcomed by god. Women and children must be protected from anyone who would harm them. It will take courage to stand for the rights of those at risk from the consequences of transgender legislation. In rod. dreyer's latest book live not by lies. He states that in our secularized culture the great sin is to stand in the way of the freedom of others to find happiness as they wish as a result we can expect to be labeled intolerant bigoted and worse will we pay the price to declare biblical truth and to defend those victimized by our secular society. Dreyer notes relatively few. Contemporary christians are prepared to suffer for their faith because the therapeutic society that is formed them denies the purpose of suffering in the first place and the idea of bearing pain. For the sake of truth seems ridiculous. By contrast jesus was clear. In luke nine twenty three. He said if anyone would come after me let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. There is a daily cost to following in serving our lord for the sake of all who need our biblical witness and courageous compassion. Let's pay that price today.

"Great show today stews here to tell you all about it. Yeah it's true. We've got a new sponsor dates spoon style later on. The is not here to tell you about that. That is going to be edited from this. Podcast he will not hear that. Portion of the podcast. Here's the good start. Here's all the good stuff. Oh yes i saw show today Bill o'reilly's fantastic is a great show. I will remind you. However take this last moment to remind you that blaze dot com slash. Glenn is the place to go. Today is the last day to get your thirty bucks off if you wanna get that Thirty bucks off please. Tv dot com slash. Glenn i would also encourage you. To of course subscribe to this podcast rate and review and click over to. Stu does america to get my podcast every day. Sick subscribe with rand. Paul and we have an appearance of andrew cuomo. Don't miss it boy. Do we ever need rand. Paul and some libertarian thinking in our country more than ever. Welcome to the program. Dr rand paul. How are you sir. Very good glenn tax revenue. You bet yesterday during the senate let me. Just play the clip of Paul with rachel levine. And her confirmation. Hearing listen genital mutilation has been nearly universally condemned. Genital mutilation has been condemned by the who. The united nations children's fund the united nations population fund according to the w. h. o. Genital mutilation is recognized internationally. As a violation of human rights genital mutilation is considered particularly egregious. Because as the who notes it is nearly always carried out on minors and is a violation of the rights of children. Most genital mutilation is not typically performed by force but as who notes that by social convention social norm the social pressure to conform to do what others do and have been doing as well as the need to be accepted. Socially in the fear of being rejected by the community. American culture is down normalizing the idea that minors can be given hormones to prevent their biological development of their secondary sexual characteristics doctor levin you have supported both allowing minors to be given hormone blockers to prevent them from going to puberty as well as surgical destruction of a minor shannon like surgical mutilation hormonal interruption of puberty. Ken permanently alter and prevent secondary sexual characteristics. The american college of pediatricians reports that eighty to ninety five percent a prepubertal children with gender dis fauria will experience resolution by late adolescence if not exposed to medical intervention and social affirmation. This statement of yours ran is responsible for headlines like this rand. Paul tried to derail. Rachel levine historic confirmation hearing with transphobic. Message information You know the interesting thing is none of it was directed towards her personally or who she is directed towards the question of whether children can consent and this is an intellectual question. It's not a You know inflammatory question. It's a question of of serious consequence. Can a young girl Twelve years old or fifteen years old. Can they consent to an abortion and the consent of the ears pierced. Can they consent have Surgery to change their their sex. I mean these are important questions and most people would argue. That children can't really make an informed consent. You know we have laws against you. Know a man having sex with a twelve year old even if the twelve year old says yes because we don't think a twelve year old is capable of consenting. They just aren't old enough to make the difference. But see it's even worse than this. In one of the clinics in england one of these gender dysphoric clinics in england ten percent of the kids that are coming in or between the age of three in ten. My goodness people talking to three year old trying to tell them it's fine that they really are of different sex. See most of the stuff would be you know. Three year olds. Think they're liam. Sometimes i mean they have no conception of any of the importance of any of these Incredible questions but to let rewrote participate in that or a five year old and eight year old. And then you've got these looney toon left wing parents encouraging this and reaffirming it and this is what the american pediatricians have said. Is that if you don't medically do anything and you don't reaffirm and you just kind of let the kid grow up. Most people grow out of this and understand that it's an aberration. Not something that they really desire is. She's going to be confirmed overwhelmingly. She's a special category now. So the democrats vote for. I suspect a couple of republicans who want to somehow you know. Send some kind of signal for two. But it's alarming and it isn't about who she is. It's about the idea to my mind that a minor could make the decision and see a lot of this stuff is irreversible. You give a boy girls. Hermansen the ages of fourteen to sixteen. They don't come back. You give a girl boys home and you know once. A girl is given enough testosterone to grow a beard with their face. Doesn't go back if they change your mind so now to too many here just crazy to me. It is a little bit about who she is and it nothing about her sexuality or her trans Transition to a woman. It has everything to do with her mother. She took her mother as she was the secretary of health for the pennsylvania. She took her mother out of a nursing home as soon as cova restrictions without warning. Anybody else hey you know maybe you should do that She also during covid had a report out from her on official health department stationary. About how the cove it scare should affect your orgies. And she put rules out. Our kids can't go to school but her priority was if you're going to go to a place where you're going to have sex with several people. Here's what you have to do. I mean the world is a clown show an absolute clown show. I think this is why she wouldn't answer my question. She refused to answer the question and came up with some empty pablum but she didn't want to answer it because she truly is an extremist. She is so far out there. That most of america recoil in horror if they knew what she was four. But you're right about the practicality of it other people ask that question that was why didn't dwell on the idea of what she did. Bring her mom out everybody else too. I absolutely that's disqualifying. That's most pertinent to whether she can do the job. But there is this big issue of normalizing this idea that a nine year old can want to change her sex and you start giving them modes and if the parents say no. That's child gets to decide at nine and that's just wrong and children just aren't cable making life changing decisions and there is a permanence to this at some point when they started giving 'em cross hormones. Meaning that you give boy girl or hormones are a girl boy when you start doing this. And they do it. Between the ages of fourteen sixteen as miners era versus changes you become sort of this Inbetween your neither boy or girl. But you can't go back a book that came out three years ago. That basically says the same stuff. All science science and scientists Warning about how detrimental this can be on. Children was pulled from amazon. It's been out for three years. It was pulled for hate speech by amazon What sunday. I believe This also goes right into the equality act. Which if you don't buy into this stuff if you don't call people by the right pronoun if you don't affirm the new sexual norms in general ed gender i'd ideology urine trouble and this is this will affect small businesses. This will affect charities. This will fa fact churches and it appears to be written in a way where there is no recourse. You're not going to a court and having this reversed on you. I don't think i've ever seen anything this bad. That has a chance passing pain. It's insane where we are. I mentioned the story of a young woman in england by the name of cure a bell and she just read on the internet. She was a confused young woman. She says she was confused psychological problems at the time. She didn't know who she was was trying to discover her identity and she Read on the internet about transsexual. I was cool. She went in after a couple of appointments. They were very encouraging into her. There was no other side. Presented jenner taking cross hormones and then having a double mastectomy now she regrets it. She's worried about whether she she knows. She's a woman now and she would like to have children She's fearful that she will be infertile and She ended up having a you know a body transforming double mastectomy and she's just regrets it and They've changed some of the rules in england on this now but this doctor levin has said that most of the time she's not for surgery before eighteen but she is for street kids so she's for poor kids who don't have parents who you can imagine if you're a homeless fifteen year old. There's a lot going on that either. Your parents have been rotten parents or you have psychological problems or you might be schizophrenic. Or you might have other problems for the reason why you're homeless. But to take those people and prey upon them and say they don't really need consent and we're gonna get the state to sort of approve their hormones. I mean this is really a grotesque that they would a poor child and You know put their infused their beliefs in their extreme views on these on. These children is just obscene brian. I know you have to run. I i want to ask you I'm not sure if you're aware of what's going on with the world economic forum in the great reset but you're already seeing it happen in companies there. Is this merger if you will between government Ngos and and corporations these public private partnerships and all based on What are called. es jeez Or yeah es g environmental social and governmental mandates. These big companies are are already adopting these things like the equality act and then critical race theory and they're jamming it down people's throats in it's an enron around the constitution. Let me let me ask you as a libertarian. We complain a lot as conservatives about big tech in what they're doing. But i believe and i know you believe private business should be able to do what they want to do. It's right in the free market but when these companies are aligned so closely with a party And the government specifically and they're doing an end run around the constitution. What should we do. Use them by their stuff. You know coca cola you know. Both my wife and i are credibly upset with them right now. They came out with his woke thing about. You need to admit that you're white. You're a terrible person. You need to admit that you're aggressive. You're opinionated and yo you apologize for being white. And that's the most grotesque sort of racist thing i've ever heard that is the world economic forums. Espn yeah and then you had bill gates out there promoting that We need to have critical race theory in math and there was a great professor from vanderbilt african american woman. Who said you know. That's the most racist thing. I've ever heard that bill gates things. My kids can't learn because the color of their skin and they we're going to dumb down math and showing your work or having too much emphasis on the correct answer is somehow racist. You know that whole concept is racist. But that's where we live and you got black lives matter extorting. Big corporations who are now paying for black lives matter people to go riot in different cities. It's obscene i. I know a guy works for one of the big drug companies. He says oh yeah. They're there if i give a hundred dollars. My company will match three hundred dollars to black lives matter. And i've seen a big. The people were in the george washington hotel in the willard hotel. Five hundred dollars a night with plane. Tickets all paid for by big corporations black lives matter to get people to riot in d. c. The people almost killed my wife. And i were a four by big corporations. Big corporations paid their way. There so are is are there enough. Republicans that are are at least feeling some sort of responsibility to stand up for the constitution. And you know it and do something. I guess the the danger is that you have to have some put spa. You gotta have some guts some courage to stand up because it is a culture out there where even by me everybody's saying i may transphobic comments yesterday. All i did was asked was whether a minor can to this kind of dramatic surgery. Nothing i ever said was hateful. I said nothing hateful about these people had nothing hateful about adults who choose to do this but the culture is out there. That is so strong that so many people in office are afraid to speak out and it's getting worse there's a handful of us that will speak on the senate there's a handful in a house and We just have to grow our ranks. But we have to resist or the. It's just gonna roll over us and we're gonna live in this terrible cancel culture a world where nobody speaks out and everybody's afraid to say anything. Silence in the face of evil is evil itself Dietrich bond hoffer Ran thank you for being one of those people who will stand up We will help you in any way we possibly can and that goes for anybody left or right. That will stand against this this nightmare. That is happening. Thank you so much. This is the best of the glenn beck program nicole. Malia case is the congressperson brand new in the In the house from new york she joins us now to give us the details on the one point nine trillion dollar covid nineteen relief package. Nicole how are you great glenn. Great great to be with you. I appreciate you having me on expose. What's actually happening in the spill. Yes so i read. I read a lot of stuff The media is spinning this. Of course as this is all going to help those states that are really in need and all those people that are really in need. I don't read it that way can you. Can you fill us in with the facts on what is in this bill. Sure well first of all. I think what people need to understand that. There's a trillion dollars leftover from the previous package. So congress didn't take the time to really identify where the need is where we could potentially be shifting resources and ensuring that we came out with something that was tailored specific to the needs of struggling americans and small businesses. way way. Way way. I i wanna make sure i understand this. There's a trillion dollars in you know some fictitious bank account that they've already approved that hasn't been sent out that is correct so And that's education sponge spending to reopen schools. Some of it is p p p money for small businesses so so so the interesting thing enough with the education funding is that the cdc said it would cost twenty five billion to reopen school safely across america yet. They put sixty four billion dollars in the previous package with the majority of it. Unspent and as you know many schools including those in my city Remain closed and on top of that. They wanna put another hundred and thirty billion dollars in this package. Ninety five percent of that funding not being able to be spent until after the after the show so over so the estimate is that to reopen schools. It cost twenty five billion but between the unspent money in the last bill and the new bill they are sending our schools. Two hundred billion dollars that is correct. And so what i say is only under mismanage government or when democrats are in control of things end up costing eight times as much as originally estimated so so what exactly is what do they say how. What is the response on two hundred million dollars for schools. Well there's been no response as a matter of fact They keep insisting that. This is for a reopening america's schools we know that's not the case number one because The estimates were an eighth of what they're putting into this fund. The second thing is that The money is restricted to be used for over ears so it's not emergency funding unless that they're not going to reopen schools for a whole other year So give you an example in new york state. My state governor cuomo did receive for billion dollars for school yet. Many of our schools remained closed throughout state and just reopen middle schools in new york city. And as you know the schools chancellor just resigned about an hour ago And it's because i believe really because he hasn't been able to successfully roll out the opening of these schools and like the catholic schools have in our city. Yeah may i just recommend For anybody who is struggling to figure out how to open schools. The first thing you have to do is Teachers you're to report back to class on monday. If not you're fired that would be the first thing to do to open up schools. Maybe it's just me you also in this bill Are are We are we are finding now That there is a eighty six billion dollars of our tax dollars to rescue union pension funds. Yeah i mean that's in there. There's a lot in there. Which is why we call it. The pelosi payoff bill. Not the actual covert relief bill. So it's not just You know bail out for pensions but you actually have a three point. Five billion dollars going overseas internationally for the global health fund for aids tuberculosis and malaria. You know good cause but the thing is why is the amount of the american people. Picking up eighty percent of the town for this international organizations expenditures. Because that's what three point. Five billion dollars equates to and this is at a time when even our diplomats overseas haven't even had access to the vaccine and the other thing to show you how bloated this package is less than one percent goes to vaccine production and distribution and us any democrat or republican local leader or national leader. And they will tell you that. The vaccine development distribution is the number one thing to get us back on track. So the fact that. It's only equating for nick less than one percent and i had to use siri by the way to figure that out because you know calculators and go up to one trillion to one point nine trillion dollars but when you calculated using siri or alexa you'll find out that point Something like point. Seven percent of the entire package is going to what is said to be the number one priority that that is how loaded the bill is. Nicole is there mean you're new to congress so let me ask you are you. Is it worse than you thought. It would be or better or about what you expected. Well unfortunately it's it's a very polarizing and My i wasn't great very polarizing first month. I'm i'm you know the fact that we lost. The senate was not helpful because there's no balance anymore They change the rules in this procedure. So that way. They don't even need any republican votes. They they changed it from the sixty. Vote requirement They change it to fifty one votes using What's called the budget reconsiliation And so you know. They've basically shut us out of this process. And now we know why because they wanted to jam all this pork into this bill And as a new yorker. I can say look i. Of course i want my city state to have money but he also want accountability. And i don't trust this mayor or this governor I believe that they'll take the federal funds and they still will increase the taxes that are driving new yorkers out already talking about imposing higher income taxes and stock transfer tax mayor de increases the property tax levy every single year me just increase tolls on our roadways And so they're taking the money and still gonna take from the people and what's interesting about the way the democrats set up. This formula is that they changed it based on population to now based on employment rate so governors like governor cuomo and gavin newsom are actually being rewarded for shutting down their economies and driving people out of work so it's very disheartening. To see how. This is playing out. But i was a member of the new york state legislature. Also in the minority. And so i'm kind of used to this. These types of games being played But i'm hopeful that we'll be able to actually work together in a bipartisan fashion. On some things like the president said he wanted to do even though he hasn't tried yet. So i was just talking to bill o'riley and he said what was happening in the new york house An assembly was that The democrats are going after cuomo. Not because of any of the scandals but because he's not radical enough. Do you believe that's true or is is is the are the democrats in new york waking up to cuomo night. Think the democrats in new york Are getting a lot of pressure from their constituents who are demanding answers and families who are demanding justice The governor made a bad mistake by implementing this order that mandated the nursing homes except covert positive patients. Then he under reported it to the public the number of deaths that as a result of that and then he stonewall legislature When they try to get answers And then his own chief of staff admitted that they were covering up the whole thing simply because they didn't want the department of justice to gain access to this information then he bullied one of the democratic assembly members who stood up to him because his uncle died in a nursing home. So i think they're getting very tired of the governor's antics Thousands of new yorkers are actually join me in adding their name at at at enough cuomo dot com to send a message that they want the governor to resign And and this has only been exacerbated now by the fact that Young woman who is part of his administration has come forward with sexual harassment claims So i think the democrats really are starting to get tired of the governor You know he's been governor for three years three terms. He does use a bullying tactics to get what he wants. He is indicative They think that he's out doing his welcome. Both with the other democrats in the state but also with the people which is why poll numbers have just been dropped so much of it last month so with him and de blasio are and i i would love to know this in california as well but you you are from new york so you might have a good handle on new york with cuomo in de blasios. The wreckage that has been done with these policies especially because of covid Are people just wanting to get rid of them or a tying them also to the policies. That are so damaging. Well i they are. They are tying them to their policies because they're the ones who put forward these arbitrary restrictions These and deeded shutdowns that have heard our local economy that has led to thousands of people losing their jobs that have put small businesses people's livelihoods Out in You know schools. The parents teachers and students they speak to you. Want to go back to school. And that is very upsetting. Children don't have school athletics anymore. Which is another big issue And there's not a lot of a lot of these restrictions that they put in place lacks common sense. You can go to the gym but you can't go to the yoga studio you. Can you can enroll. You can ice skate. And and you know you can go to an ice skating pavilion escape. But you can't have hockey leaks. Make any sense And so there's a lot of frustration. A new york city were being treated differently than the rest of the state. The rest of the state is at fifty percent capacity for indoor dining Was shut down for so long and finally we got twenty five percent. It kept pushing. We got up more now. Thirty five percent inching up toward fifty but why are we being treated differently than the rest of the state so people are upset about this. They see the governor and the mayor had way too much power. And you know. The governor's power needs to be rescinded. I've said that Repeatedly and saying that for months and the democrats keep dragging their feet but they finally to go and do it and take back their power as a co equal branch of government and and work to just reopen the economy and get children back to school and get people back to work. I have to tell you. I think between What companies are discovered with zoom and and virtual work it cetera et cetera and the absolute devastation. That has been done to manhattan and and your district in southern Brooklyn and staten island. I don't and i. I know you won't agree with us. I'm sure but i don't see new york city ever recovering to the con- the the city that it once was at least for a decade How how how how're you. How is that area going to pay for all of the services that it needs and have promised when everybody's moving away companies are shutting down. You're absolutely right about the policies that have been put in place that are driving people out. I do have hope that new york city will recover that We do have a mayor's race hoping that somebody Who will be You know really really try to roll back some of this stuff that the mayor did. I mean look whether it be defunding. The police which was completely ridiculous. Idea is led to his crime skyrocketing We have a lot of mismanagement a lot of mismanagement of our tax dollars. Which is why. I'm so concerned with billions more coming to new york But i do believe that It's up to the people. The people have to vocal. They have to complain. I ran for mayor of new york city in two thousand seventeen I think we'd be in a better position how they won that election Unfortunately this mayor spends more and more money and the problems get worse and worse so That is the definition of mismanagement I think there's a lot of things we could be doing differently to tackle are homeless crisis to make sure our streets or safer to make sure that our trains are running to make sure that our children are getting a good education in person You know the these are the things that i think Unfortunately government has just strayed from the basics of what they're supposed to be doing right. People expect you keep them safe. Give their kids a good education. Be sure traffic is flowing. The trains are running on time. Making sure that there's an environment where jobs can grow. And unfortunately they've straight into all sorts of areas they gotta get back to the basics. And that's what i'm going to be pushing for speaking out for both here in washington and went on back home in new york city. Thank you so much Congresswoman nicole maili takas from new york. Thanks for checking in with us. I appreciate this is the best of the glenn beck program and don't forget rate us on. I two welcome to the glenn beck program. It is friday. Wanna tell you about the podcast comes out tomorrow with tulsi gabbard. It is really fascinating. It really is yeah. It is fascinating. But i think it's important that we we cover something that you said. Why do you. Sometimes you say these things are so profound in the moment or what are use them because of just you're so rapid fire with great moments. We miss a jam. And i think the audience may may have missed the gem just a few moments ago and i think the audience wants settled in. Clear your mind. What do just contemplate this. Brilliant analysis by glenn beck sausages desserts really yummy cut with a spoon style forks. You'll save fifty. What exactly is a poon style fork. That is the copy says cut with a fork with the actual term for four stakes is cut with a spoon and i was thinking for a hottie spoon. Not for could. I forgot about the word steak right now.

You know it's so weird. I am more comfortable with this. Then if you are actually heaping praise on me. If you say you're a great. I would rather have you point this out. That's how sad my life is surprisingly enough. I'm more comfortable. You feel awkward when when people say positive thing which is really nice because it doesn't happen very often. I've remove myself from that position throughout my entire life. Well here's a great thing. You're standing in my shadow for just the last twenty five years also say what does that say about me. No it's sad. It's depressing when i think about it so i try to drink a lot. Well i can't drink anymore so think how i feel.

Paul and some libertarian thinking in our country more than ever. Welcome to the program. Doctor rand paul. How are you sir. Very good glen. Thanks for having me you bet yesterday during the senate let me. Just play the clip of Rand paul with rachel levine. And her confirmation. Hearing listen genital mutilation has been nearly universally condemned. Genital mutilation has been condemned by the who. The united nations children's fund the united nations population fund according to the w. h. o. Genital mutilation is recognized internationally. As a violation of human rights genital mutilation is considered particularly egregious. Because as the who notes it is nearly always carried out on minors and is a violation of the rights of children. Most genital mutilation is not typically performed by force but has who notes that by social convention social norm the social pressure to conform to do it others do and have been doing as well as the need to be accepted. Socially in the fear of being rejected by the community. American culture is down normalizing the idea that minors can be given hormones to prevent their biological development of their secondary sexual characteristics doctor levin you have supported both allowing minors to be given hormone blockers to prevent them from going to puberty as well as surgical destruction of a minor shannon like surgical mutilation hormone no interruption of puberty can permanently alter and prevent secondary sexual characteristics the american college of pediatricians reports that eighty to ninety five percent a prepubertal children with gender dis. Fauria will experience experience resolution by late adolescence. If not exposed to medical intervention and social affirmation this statement of yours ran is responsible for headlines like this rand. Paul tried to derail. Rachel levine historic confirmation hearing with transphobic misinformation. You know the interesting thing is none of. It was directed her personally or who she is. Who directed towards the question of whether children can consent and this is an intellectual question. It's not a You know inflammatory question. It's a question of serious consequence can a young girl Of twelve years old or fifteen years old can they consent to an abortion and the consent of the ears pierced. Can they consent Surgery to change their their sex. I mean these are important questions and most people would argue. That children can't really make an informed consent. You know we have laws against you. Know a man having sex with a twelve year old even if the twelve year old says yes because we don't think a twelve year old is capable of consenting. They just aren't old enough to make the difference. But see it's even worse than this in one of the clinics in england one of these gender dysphoric clinics in england. Ten of the kids that are coming in or between the age of three and ten my goodness people talking to three year old dry and to tell them it's fine that they really are of a different sex. See most of the stuff would be you know. Three year olds. Think there. sometimes. I mean they have no conception of any of the the importance of any of these Incredible questions but to let a three year old participate in that or a five year old and eight year old. And then you've got these. Looney toon left wing parents encouraging this and reaffirming it and this is what the american pediatricians have said. Is that if you don't medically do anything and you don't reaffirm it and you just kind of let the kid grow up. Most people grow out of this and understand that. It's a an aberration. Not something that they really desire. Is she going to be confirmed overwhelmingly. She's in a special category now. So the democrats will vote for. I suspect a couple of republicans who want to. Somehow you know send some kind of signal will vote for two but it's alarming and it isn't about who seniors. It's about the idea to my mind that a minor could make the decision and see a lot of this stuff is irreversible. You give a boy girls. Hermansen the ages of fourteen to sixteen. They don't come back. And you give a girl boys home and you know once. A girl is given enough testosterone to grow. A beard with. Their face doesn't go back if they changed their mind so now to just crazy he to me it is a little bit about who she is and it. Nothing about our sexuality are her trans transition to a woman. It has everything to do with her mother. She took her mother as she was the secretary of health for the pennsylvania. She took her mother out of Nursing home as soon as cova restrictions without warning anybody else. Hey you know. Maybe you should do that. She also during covid had a report out from her on official health department stationary. About how the cova did scare should affect your orgies. And she put rules. I can't go to school but her priority was if you're going to go to a place where you're going to have sex with several people. Here's what you have to do. I mean the world is a clown show an absolute clown show. I think this is why she wouldn't answer my question. She refused to answer. The question came up with some empty pablum but she didn't want to answer it because she truly is an extremist. She is so far out there. That most of america recoil in horror if they knew. Choose for. But you're right about the practicality of other people. Ask that question that was. Why didn't dwell on the idea of what she did. Bring her mom out. Everybody else to die. Absolutely that's disqualifying. That's most pertinent to whether she can do the job. But there is this big issue of normalizing this idea that a nine year old Can want to change her sex and you start giving them roads and if the parents say no that's a child gets to decide nine and that's just wrong and children just aren't capable of making life changing decisions and there is a permanence to this at some point when they started giving 'em cross hormones. Meaning that you give boy girl her hormones or girl boy when you start doing this and they do it between the ages of fourteen sixteen as minors. there changes Do you become sort of In between your neither boy or girl but you can't go back a book that came out three years ago. That basically says the same stuff Medical science science and scientists Warning about how detrimental this can be on. Children was pulled from amazon. It's been out for three years. It was pulled for hate speech by amazon What sunday. I believe This also goes right into the equality act. Which if you don't buy into this stuff if you don't call people by the right pronoun if you don't affirm the new sexual norms in general gender. I'd ideology you're in trouble and this is this will affect small businesses. This will affect charities. This will affect churches and it appears to be written in a way where there is no recourse. You're not going to a court and having this reversed on you. I don't think i've ever seen anything. This bad That has a chance passing pain. It's insane where we are. I mentioned the story of a young woman in england by the name of cure bell and she just read on the internet. She was a confused young woman. She says she was confused. She psychological problems at the time. She didn't know who she was trying to discover her identity and she Read on the internet about transsexual was cool. She went in after a couple of appointments. They were very encouraging onto her. There was no other side. Presented jenner taking cross hormones and then having a double mastectomy now she regrets it. She's worried about whether she she. She's a woman now and she would like to have children She's fearful that she will be infertile and She ended up having a you know a body transforming double mastectomy and she just regrets it and They've changed some of the rules in england on this now but this doctor levin has said that most of the time. She's not for surgery before eighteen but she is for street kids so she's for poor kids who don't have parents who you can imagine if you're a homeless fifteen year old. There's a lot going on that either. Your parents have been rotten parents or you have psychological problems or you might be schizophrenic. Or you might have other problems for the reason why you're homeless. But to take those people and prey upon them and say they don't really need consent and we're going to get the state to sort of approve their hormones and mean this is really grotesque that they would take a poor child and and put their their in infused their beliefs in their extreme views. On these on these children is just obscene brin. I know you have to run. I i want to ask you I i'm not sure if you're aware of what's going on with the world economic forum in the great reset but you're already seeing it happened in companies there is this merger if you will between government ngos and and corporations these public private partnerships and all based on What are called. Es jeez Or yeah. Es g environmental social and governmental mandate these big companies are are already adopting these things like the equality act and ben critical race theory and they're jamming it down people's throats in it's an enron around the constitution. Let me let me ask you as a libertarian. We complain a lot as conservatives about big tech in what they're doing. But i believe and i know you believe private business should be able to do what they want to do. It's right in the free market but when these companies are aligned so closely with a party And the government specifically and they're doing an end run around the constitution. What should we do use them. Don't buy their stuff. You know coca cola you know. Both my wife and i are incredibly upset with them right now. They came out with his woke thing about. You need to admit that you're white and you're terrible person. You need to admit that you're aggressive. You're opinionated and their yo you will apologize for being white. And that's the most grotesque sort of racist thing. I've ever heard that is the world economic forum. Cbs jeez yeah. Then you had bill gates out there promoting that We need to have critical race theory in math and there was a great professor from vanderbilt african american woman. Who said you know. That's the most racist thing i've ever heard that bill gates thinks my kids can't learn because the color of their skin and they we're gonna dumb down math and showing your work or having too much emphasis on. The correct answer is somehow racist. You know that whole concept is racist. But that's the world we live in. You got black lives matter extorting. Big corporations who are now paying for black lives matter people to go riot in different cities. It's obscene i. I know a guy works for one of the big drug companies. He says oh yeah. They're there if i give one hundred dollars. My company will match three hundred dollars to black lives matter. And i've seen a big the people who were in the george washington hotel in the willard hotel five hundred dollars a night with plane tickets. All paid for by big corporations through black lives matter to get people to riot in dc. The people almost killed my wife. And i were A four by big corporations big. Us corporations paid their way. There so are is are there enough. Republicans that are at least feeling some sort of Responsibility to stand up for the constitution and Know and do something. I guess the danger is that you have to have some put spa. You gotta have some guts some courage to stand up because it is a culture out there where even by me everybody's saying i may transphobic comments yesterday. All i did was asked was whether a minor can to this kind of dramatic surgery. Nothing ever said was hateful. I said nothing about these people. I said nothing about adults who choose to do this but the culture is out. There is so strong that so many people in office are afraid to speak out and it's getting worse so there's a handful of us that will speak on the senate. There's a handful in the house and We just have to grow our ranks but we have to resist or the. It's just going to roll over us and we're gonna live in this terrible cancel culture a world where nobody speaks out and everybody's afraid to say anything. Silence in the face of evil is evil itself Detroit hoffer Rand thank you for being one of those people who will stand up We will help you in any way we possibly can and that goes for anybody left or right. That will stand against this this nightmare. That is happening. Thank you so much rand. Paul thanks clemson. Yvonne and her husband live in california. They're both in their seventies. And you know lifetime's worth of aches and pains kind of catch up. Yana and her husband were not immune to this started. Slowing them down bit by bit. Dade day after day they were less and less able to get around live the active lifestyle that they wanted. They tried a number of things but nothing really worked. Fortunately yvonne and her husband listen to this program and heard me talking about relief factor and help it how it helped me get my life back. They were desperate and so they'd listened to a clown like me and they took it and you know the rest of the story after just a couple of weeks. They found freedom life without those aches and pains. They got their life back with relief factor. So did i so. Could you relief factor. Try it seventy percent of the people who try go on to order more. You'll know within the first three weeks which is why they have the the three week trial period. Just try it for three weeks. If it's not working most likely not going to relief factor dot com call eight hundred five hundred eighty three eighty four eight hundred five hundred eighty three eighty four. It's relief factor dot com ten seconds station. Id this equality. Act that passed the house. Yesterday is truly game. Changing along with the The co vid bailout. If you will those two things alone will change america forever. What's in the covid relief. Bill will get into here in a little while is terrifying last night. I was fortunate enough to be able to have time with W rv listeners. There in richmond. Virginia i think it was supposed to last twenty minutes and the program greg was. I think a little pissed at me by the time we ended because it was like two hours. And it's because. I wanted to talk to the i wanted to hear them And i wanted to hear how we can help them in what they're facing and it's It's amazing i think There were twelve years. And i think what i heard. There was just a strong determination and an understanding of what is headed their way but they won the the main topic i think was probably The equality act. What is that going to do for me. If i refuse to have my kids being taught that they can gender reassign. What does that mean if we say no. They can't and they go back to school and report that. What does that mean. If i won't allow Transgender people just to switch bathrooms or people who are in transition even even better people who just say identify as a woman yet. It's me. I got a cool cigarettes and i'm looking for some tampons You know not right now. I'm just i just this morning. Decided i'm going to be a woman. I'm identify as a woman. I don't want you in the girls bathroom. What happens to churches who say gender is specific gender is assigned divinely assigned what what happens. What happens if you run a small business. You're not going to be able to survive this. You don't have if you stand up against it. The lawsuits against this against you will put you out of business for sure. So there's no fighting anymore. What happens. I talked to these people in virginia last night And and maybe on. Monday we just do a full show of just phones. Because i i i want to hear your voice. I listened to these people last night and they were determined but it was a change. There was a change in understanding. And i think people are starting to realize wow real religious persecution real persecution for people who will not conform is right around the corner and i fear it is but you win in the end and you become a better stronger person. Stand now stand. Now this is the glenn beck program american financing. Nmls one eight two. Three three four www dot nmlsconsumeraccess.org. Making your money work for you is one of the best feelings in the world. When you start to get to the point where you can actually save some money Back i mean it's you feel yourself getting out ahead of that eight ball just a little bit because you've been constantly behind. There's just nothing better than that so it begs the question. Are you doing everything you can in your financial world to make sure that that's happening. What kind of percentage are you paying on your mortgage. Do you have debts especially with high interest credit cards Or any debt. Like a timeshare at fourteen percent. What if there's a way to lump all of that together in a refinance a mortgage and produce one lower monthly payment. That will put you on top of all that debt instead of underneath it there is a way and the people that will help you find that way american financing. I want you to. Don't don't put it off.

I'd like to tweet back to oreo cookie. So trans fats. And you're an expert on trans. I love that. Does this thing where there's another story that just came out the other day. That was the it was the same thing it was like. It was a complicated story but basically a fake accusation of racism by a young very wealthy student black student against a very non wealthy white janitor and her mom she said if i was i was criticized for eating wild black and it it it it took. They question whether i even existed as a person of color. Everyone knows you existed. They wouldn't have said anything about you. Being in the room existed know you exist. That was the problem you existed in the room. That was banned the language. They just turn these words glenn into things that don't mean anything we are officially in a clown show we are in a clown show nothing. I'm telling you right now. I'm an alcoholic okay. I know clown shows my life was a clown show where nothing made sense. I could say or do whatever i wanted. And it all worked for me and my crazy head but at some point you're going to be forced to wake up you're going to be forced if you don't die which we might if you don't die i you will realize we have got to sober up and when you start going back to reality you're going to be so ashamed of what you have tried to perpetrate on on truth truth on math on science which you have perverted everything into i wanted. I want to go over the covid bill. The relief package k. Some say it's nine percent kovic related the it probably closer to fifty percent. If you're giving them the benefit of the doubt. And i'll explain why fifty. Eight billion dollar bailout. For the union pension funds. The left would say that is that absolutely is four co fed. The unions have really suffered because of kobe. No i saw. I told you in two thousand ten. I went over the pensions of the unions. In all these blue states. They couldn't afford them then. And i told you they would come up with a way to get the united states to bail them out. Well here it is thirty. Four billion dollars in expanded obamacare subsidies four billion dollars to off loans for socially disadvantaged farmers and ranchers. This one is absolutely on believable. If you are black and you own a farm you can go to the federal government and the government will pay off your debts mortgage all of it. One hundred percent no-strings-attached because you've been disadvantaged because you're black whites need not apply so this this package is going. I mean joe biden said it. He said i'm we are going to concentrate this package on the disadvantaged in communities of color so if you're white you don't get that four billion dollars to pay off loans a billion dollars in world food assistance now. I don't have a problem with this. I don't have a problem. Being charitable. But i believe the united states government is going to pick and choose who gets it based on their environmental social justice bullcrap. They're going to give it and waste most of that money and a billion dollars in food assistance. What about all the poor starving children here. The doubling of the federal minimum wage was in it but it looks like the parliamentarian said. You can't do that in this bill. Eight billion dollars to expand broadband access. They say that's for covid. If i'm being charitable i'll give them the benefit of the doubt that's one of the stretch ones. Though right is more people are on zoom calls and and everyone's working from home better communities impor- communities they may not have broadband access with school for school. Also it's again. That's a stretch but at least tied to covert now. I'd like to see how stretch stretch. Armstrong can go on this one. Two hundred seventy billion dollars for the national endowment for the arts and humanities. Now that's covid you know why because those theaters are struggling. Those theaters and those artists have not been able to work or have an audience. What are they going to do. I dunno get another job. But isn't we have all sorts of unemployment insurance built into this bill so we're adding right and we have well. Nature loans upkeep on on You know these these big beautiful buildings like the kennedy center which is why they have all these loans and in two hundred million dollars for the institute for library and museum services. Now let me just say this as a guy who is working on a library and museum and building one. You can get some of this money. Maybe i can get some of this so my expenses could be zero except for rent right now. Because i can't let anybody in. He can't come into a museum. You're you don't have these museums in these libraries in washington open. Wh why do you need extra money fighting. A fifty million dollars for environmental justice grants you have ten million dollars for and this is covert related ten million dollars for native american language preservation. So does i know cova does a lot of damage. It kills. Languages kills languages. Native american language is only native. American language regressive autism is killing the english language but cove it killed the native american language a third round of relief checks. Fourteen hundred dollars for americans adds up to four hundred and twenty two billion. That's what i think. People think kovic bill real relief. Bill is right. I think that's what they think it is. You're out of what it is getting money right. Yeah that that that would make su some stimulus sense until a lot of. That's what people think of this right. Except four hundred and twenty two billion for everybody affected in the united states. Covert four hundred and twenty. Two billion is what you get but the states the blue states on top of that because they you know andrew cuomo has been struggling to i mean. The cupboard is bare people. Moving out of state right. I mean how are we going to deal with all these empty buildings in empty offices they get three hundred and fifty dollars in bailouts now. Not the states like texas. Not the state of florida south. Are you kidding me. Only the states. That did the right thing and really shut their state down. They get three hundred and fifty billion dollars. While every individual in america is only worth four hundred and twenty two billion one hundred and twenty twenty billion dollars to open schools. I can do that one for free. Teachers get your ass in the classroom or you're fired on monday. That didn't cost anything. Somebody should try that forty billion dollars for higher education because you can't expect yale to dip into their trust funds thirty nine billion dollars for cheryl child-care here's one one point five billion dollars for amtrak fifty billion dollars for fema ninety billion for mass transit because let me tell you something. There is nothing. American needs more than that. Maintenance work on the bridge between new york and canada And the of course the hundred million dollar metro a tunnel the the extension the six point five mile extension in silicon valley because those poor guys in silicon valley. How are they going to get to work. I mean sure helicopter you know hover board Just a bunch of their employees carrying them into the office. They of course need that extension of six point five miles for one hundred million dollars fifty. Sorry fifteen billion dollar Payroll support for airlines. And this is good two hundred and forty six billion dollars. It's four hundred dollars a week more. In federal enhanced unemployment benefit fits through august. Now the cbo has said this increase of money will now increase the unemployment rate well as decreased the labor force in job participation since unemployment will be more profitable then finding a job. There's your economic stimulus bill. There is what's gonna fix the country there my friend along with all of the The equality act which is going to help the small business man and the churches coulda helped them so much. It's going to be so good for your children. That is just the beginning of the consequence of your neighbor or somebody down the street that yeah i believe in the constitution and didn't get there fat ass out of the chair. I want to continue this conversation after this blood pressure. My doctor said the other day you have any stress in your life now. I've just remodelling my entire house while living in it. I've got two teenage children. That are still not back in school. Have you seen the news. No stress at all. If you're selling your house. May i recommend real estate agents. I trust dot com. You know they don't believe it or not. They're not about balloons in gimmicks You're going to be turned down. Offers left or right up the every who come see the house. Because all the blue that i've tied to Street sides All around the house. I got bob for blocks. Who'll size house. It's going to be crazy. I got a little tap dance routine. Say hello body hello baby. It's great if you don't want that singing frog as your real estate agent. May i suggest real estate agents. I trust dot com.

Their customers are happy afterwards. They get you the most money they can sell your house on time as fast as anyone else can or faster preferably it's real estate agents. I trust dot com. These are the people in your neighborhood in your area that have the right connections to get the job. Done you do an interview. After real estate agents. I trust dot com. If you're looking for the best go there free service to you real estate agents. I trust dot com glenn What can we do. what can we do. We know the problem. I contend most people do not know the problem They know a portion of it but they have no idea of the reality of the world. They're living in now. They think they're living in the world Of even year they are not living in that world. It's completely different in my job. Every day is to describe the world you now live in so you wake up by It's a little like the matrix. Wake up it's no longer the world you think it is. It's entirely different. And that means your strategy has to change and people ask me. What do i do. What do i do first of all. I really appreciate the fact that you would think that i have a solution. I am just like you. We are in this together. What do i do get with your local community. Strengthen the bonds with your neighbors talk to each other get on your school board. Get into city council. Stand up in your business. that's what you do. There's no grande solution to this. It's individuals standing up and and saying i'm not taking this course. I'm not taking it. Because i yes i'm white but i'm not a racist and i won't hear this racist talk of categorizing a whole group of people. We didn't do it with with islam. I won't do it with christianity. I won't do it with blacks. I won't do it with waitz. it's wrong but the most important thing you can do is just find the courage and know what's worth fighting for. No what's worth being alienated for last night. My son and i watched saving private ryan. He had never seen it and he's a yapper man. He's talking to me. Is i mean you think i'm bad. He's like you know what the real fact is on this and i'm like shut up. Just watch the movie we got to the end of it and they say private ryan but at the end of it. What tom hanks says to private ryan rings fresh and new. He says earned. This earned this just watching the beach scenes knowing what people have sacrificed for so long. Have we earned this. Are we living a good life. Are we living a decent life. Are we contributing. Are we building this up. are we honoring their sacrifice. Earned this gross glenn beck program.

They're not stupid little sticks that stick out a years. I hate that Also they're comfortable. They don't fall out when when you're walking. I mean some would say they fall out when i exercise. I would know anything about that. But they don't fall out of your ears when you're you're moving. they're comfortable.

The acclaimed author of killing crazy horse and Also his new book is coming out. Killings the mob. The fight against organized crime in america. And of course we will be talking about that on most of this channel with a a very gracious grant from the macarthur foundation. Meanwhile let's slum it and talk about today's news with bill o'reilly fill back. What's the most important story of the week. I think the border On on reported On bill o'reilly dot com. You spend a lot of time on it last night on the news so it's happening on the board of the southern border is going to Influence the Vote coming up in less than two years for the house and the senate and what people don't understand. I didn't even know all this. But i put my super sleuths to get real now. The micro stuff and essentially doesn't know what's happening in mexico. He doesn't know he doesn't really care either. If you look at his history about immigration. He's never been a guy. That's been proactive in that area. But what's happening. is that mexico itself now. That trump has gone because mexico feared donald trump. they feared him and they basically cooperated by seeking asylum seekers and letting them stay in mexico. That was the trump program you can't come to the united states Asked for asylum and stay as soon as you ask we put you across the border and you gotta stay in mexico. Everybody remembers that right. That's done so oberdorf. Says you know when i going to do this anymore. Even though the united states is essentially paying for it over door you know i. i don't really want to speculate but He's told the united states we're not gonna cooperate and cartel narcotics investigations Gonna stop the migrants coming from central america. And we're not gonna keep them here on the northern border While you guys Wait to hear their asylum cases. So that's a that's a trifecta right there right. What news organizations have covered that Outside of the outside of the conservative media i would i would gather none. None of the corporate media covered it. So then you gotta yourself why. Why wouldn't they cover this. When this is probably the most important national slash foreign news story. There is that in the space of thirty seven days. Joe biden has totally totally. All right turned around all the things that donald trump did which pretty much stopped the caravans and the mass Trespassing on the board of wh why wouldn't you report that. okay. So i may. I offer a theory. I remember at Fox news when we were working together. There were things that you would cover that. I thought were really important. But i didn't cover them And it wasn't that they weren't important it was because you were taking care of that base and it allowed me to talk about something else because it was so important. And i think there are two other stories that fall into this trifecta of destruction of america and the one i think most americans especially If they are christian if they are religious and if they have children is the equality act. Yeah that is terrifying. But it's not gonna get through ever to send senate any of that gets through. I just talked to rand paul. He said he thought it would. Well you gotta get sixty. 'cause filibuster it so i don't see how it's possible. Did rampal explain. No he didn't okay. Well trust me so the reason that i'm not hopping up and down about this because essentially this is Two paragraphs story. I think most americans will want protections for gay people. Don't want him to be bullies. When i taught high school. I saw that firsthand where kids were effeminate. Boys were feminine Will really really bullied. And it was horrible and no one wants that and the federal government can easily extend protections in the workplace. That you can't be fired because you don't think anybody's gonna pose that but what this bill does if you're baking a cake And a gay guy comes in and says i want your get my wedding and you go well. I can't really do that. Because i don't grieve religiously with Your al optionals you have to or you or the feds prosecute you right. So that that's the issue and that issue Is there isn't i. Don't think there's anybody Outside of the murkowski and well. But there's more there's more to this there's also the compelling of speech you know why can't we just all get along and just use the pronoun that they are asking to use you remember the high school teacher. Yeah i again. That's not gonna it's not gonna rise so if this law were passed pretty much essentially same law that protects Skin color and Political persuasion that kind of thing. No no no no well. If the component that you would have to cooperate with gays even if you didn't believe that it's it's not just it's it's not just that it is. It is the bathroom issue. It is the People who are in transition competing in in girls sports it's Medical professionals not being able to say. Hey this you know this is not necessarily good for your child to do this It is the fact that it doesn't matter if you're a church or a charity if you won't have you know a transgender person working at your church You are in deep deep trouble. I mean it's it is Well that's why. I'm telling you is not going to get in. I do it. they're not gonna pass it. Republicans will block it. You need sixty votes. Because he'll filibuster it that's why they wanna do it. The filibuster shocked if this thing gets passed into law the way the way the house wrote it. You know what happens. I know that's what i is. Negotiations broke out. They take out all the stuff and and And then it goes around and around and around and around But i don't think any of its gonna get in tokyo. So let's let's go with the other story. The covid relief package one point nine trillion dollars which includes fifty eight billion dollars. Bailout for union. Pensions i how about the four billion dollars to pay off loans for socially disadvantaged farmers and ranchers now i would claim that that's me there is no i'm rancher and there's no one more socially disadvantage among ranchers than me thank you get the first right No but i. If if you're white you need not apply The the billions for the national endowments the billions of baid bailouts for blue states. The ten million dollars for native american language preservation fifty million dollars for environmental justice grants. It looks like it is the beginning of What do you call that When you're getting paid to do nothing but write poetry for nancy pelosi They send a check. no no. it's not welfare. it's a basic minimum income lewis labor's universal basic income. It looks like that is also in here. I mean it is. It's a mess a mess. That's why hasn't been passed you know. Then then they'll take another mcconnell Delaying another four or five months and meantime then they'll hope that this vaccine is kicking in which it is by the way if you look at the stat is From christmas eve to last night we we put those stats up last night The number new cases as declined. I think it's sixty seventy percent So look i'm not a guy that spends a lot of time on proposed legislation once it comes up for a vote and i get in because these kinds of things have a way of being delay their way change watered down all of this stuff the psychological thing though is if you look at the polls that most people go me old enough to my chair kokomo because they don't take the time to understand you know how much insanity is in the bill and how much of a waste of money A lot of this stuff is because they don't you know people are selfish. People want their money. They're they're hurting And so it's a propaganda tool as long as it's held up for the democratic party but that's the country we live in again. You go back to the media the media. You're gonna just say what you said. Are they gonna tell people well. This is a bill and this is a waste of time and why they're doing. No no and that really is the essential problem that we have in this country. Right now is that we're we have a news in america we have a news blackout. I mean people don't know what to do is going on because you look when you have a misbehavior. Accusation against governor cuomo and none of the network news covers it and the cable the to liberal cables. Don't are you kidding me. how do you call it. The cavenaugh affect so they're willing to rip up cabinet And destroy his family and his children and they won't even mention this and always the same day with biden. I mean everything about trump any accusation against trump. Bang everywhere right. Oh the the women were on tv. Your credibility and you're on tv absolutely biden gets the same thing and it's Well put it in the hunter biden capsule and not mentioned it so to me. I mean i stay way from all of this stuff. Because i don't know what happened. No idea what happened. I mean. I can't point a finger at anybody. I'm not saying anything let's wait the blackout of the news Yeah absolutely unbelievable. All right hang on. Lemme lemme go to the facts of covid. And what's happening on the ground in new york with governor cuomo and because stu and we've had this conversation maybe it's just wishful thinking but it looks like there's a beginning of a movement in the democratic party to eject him. I wanna talk about him. I also wanna talk about the The the new assistant secretary of health. Rachel levine. Who went through her confirmation hearing yesterday. I don't wanna talk about the the trans part of it. I wanna talk about what this woman actually believes. And how radical she is and i after. Correct something Ran didn't tell me that it would pass that. The bill would pass. He said she will be. She will be confirmed because there's going to be a lot of republicans that want a position that they are not haters. It's not about who she's chosen to be. It's it's her policies that are so bad back in just a second with bill. O'reilly our sponsor. This half hour is American financing today is the first day of the rest of your mortgage How's that for a friday me upper.

I still believe in them. I didn't when they first called. I turned them down as a sponsor because it was right before two thousand eight. And i said i don't trust any financing company. They're like no no. No we listened to you. We agree with you that these banks are screwing people. We don't do business like that.

Bill o'reilly Governor cuomo in much trouble on so many things I saw that. He has a job. Opening in the communications department. For the governor i i would imagine people are scrambling to get that job. You tell me what you think is happening in the democratic party. Politically and i'm talking about the new york. Democrats with cuomo. New york is now trying to get to the california radical left status desperately. Albany is trying to be sacramento there. You have to understand the dynamic of the state so the republican party is totally blown up here even though. Donald trump competed outside of new york city fairly well in the state The no leadership on republican a lot of their former leaders imprisoned I mean they're just. The republican party here is just the worst so The democrats know that now they have a open field and they can. You know impose crazy stuff And try to get it in forever. Cuomo's not radical enough them all right. Yeah i know wait so so. The pushback is not because he killed a bunch of people nursing homes naidoo about it made money on it. No no no no. Don't care about that. These people were waiting in the weeds. Cortez is the leader of this crew. Guy named andy. Kim from queens is a local guy they were waiting for cuomo To screw up. Wait so wait. Wait on andy kim. Do you believe that he was telling the truth about that phone call. I yelled at any kim the other day. Call them up into the such the guys just so everyone yells at andy and he walks out of his house and get back in the house. All right. nobody likes So yeah cuomo cuomo's it. Everybody in cuomo. I mean people. Don't even care. I mean yelling. And he's running around and we we go. I just standard you know. Come on Anybody stunned that and cuomo hills point phone komo threatens people or or uses mob tactics. I'm good but you do that. Kill you okay. Andrew fine The ketchup So this is all a bunch of crap And andrew cuomo though is so arrogant and he saw unlike But there are people who really like him. Very very much yeah. I don't know whether you knows. But he's the godfather to billy joel's two young daughters. They're real close and cuomo can be very charming and he's got a big social set here on long island. I mean he shows up in michael. Corleone was very charming as well. Not michael. wasn't you know sunny was but anyway The plan on the part of the far left in new york is to get him out and put even further left. Lunen there so whereas komo's signed the no bail law. Okay this one would sign the no prison law. You see what. I'm talking about That's what these people are doing. It couldn't care less about the poor nursing home deaths. They don't care about you. Know if he is yelling at people or or whatever else. The accusation is the got him on the ropes. They don't like him personally And they're gonna try to take him out and you know what they will he's done i think i don't think he comes back From any of this. I think to there'll be a new governor I think you'll probably eke out his term. We don't have recall here in new york New some. I don't think newsome's gonna survive the year but here. I don't think you'll impeach him. They'll censure him and censure is airdrie reduces. that's what center right. so tell me about gavin. Newsom what do you think happens in california because that is not a movement to get someone more radical in no no. So here's is going to happen They got the signatures so they have to validate the signatures and then it has to go anyway. Wait do you believe that. There's going to be any problems with the validation process. Because they're going to have more than two million. They only need one five. I mean everybody hates newsom out there. That french laundry thing and the hair mousse. They're just tired of it. They they want ball governor in california. That would tired of the ceremony. Just re Renounce yesterday One point eight to five million at ready. Yeah and and look they can get as many as they want so then it gets put on the ballot in the summertime. Probably august in there and along with do you want get newsom out or not. You have to answer that then. There are Other people to replace him on the same ballot all right and then you just choose one. I'd like to further Our conversation on just who do you think they're going to choose as well as some of the other stories that are happening this week. The story on the navy now doing critical race theory training that all white people are bad. What's happening with our military. The troops the stand down and schools with bill. O'reilly going up.

They're talking about richard grenell as possible candidate in california. Have you heard any names that you thought could replace gavin newsom. Well the guy in san diego The former mayor there He's gonna ron got him. Cox who Newsom beat last time. He's a republican stalwart. He's gonna run Is there a big name out. There that You know like arnold schwarzenegger he got in because for recalls you'll remember they booting gray davis out and then on was on. The dalit voted for him. Yeah but are they gonna. Are you going to see a. Is there a a conservative lean at all. I can't say it's a wave but is there a lean at all now is california or is this. Just about gavin sucks. Well the folks are. The folks are angry Because you know muslim shut down the entire state putting all the gyms out of business in the restaurants and they're angry about the homeless and they're angry visually angry they can see the deterioration is this. Is this something that the average person sees and goes you know. Maybe that's our policies. Or the i don't know if they're lincoln and into liberal philosophy. I don't know if they're doing that That would have to be done with the study or something but the folks are angry. And you know the french laundry thing. Where mr moosehead. When to the most expensive restaurant and didn't have a mask and you know did everything. He pulled everybody else not to do that. Pretty much did him. And but is the philosophy of irresponsible liberalism under fire in california minority state And i'm not saying that with any disparagement toward minorities but it's a minority state now and so people are voting well was going to get me And again. I'm not everybody but people or am i gonna get one of my gonna get okay and then you know. What party does that so. I don't know if ideology is going to change out there Let's talk a little bit about cpac. President trump is coming to see pack. He's going to be speaking on sunday. Right what do you think he's going to say well. Miller is guy just came out and said he's not gonna look back and he's not gonna relitigate the election which would be smart for him Not to do that. Do you think he's got that he'll get a few jabs in okay but what he should do and you know if you listened to me he would do it but he doesn't listen to me back which is just so. How could someone not listened to know about half. The country is made a very good happy life for themselves. But i i'm not sure about that but i would open up with. Here's the kind of election reform. We need in america. Okay and then five bullet points. Here's what we have to do to ensure that the next election is rife with controversy. Now that would engage the people who believe that he got hosed right there screaming for he wouldn't look like Just some guy who's bitter and he's advancing solutions to. What is legitimate problem for. Most americans not the media but most americans and so he should open with that and then man. He's got the border. Just as i said in the beginning of this conversation he can roll on that. Just roll on it and the stock market is imploding. Could use that Because by the end of today that market is going to be down this week and then he can say biden is in his jammies. He doesn't know what he's doing and get away with it. Because you got you know. Stop now the market might be back next week but now it's pretty painful week So you know the essential thing is that whether you like trump or not. He was engaged in the presidency. This is the most important point for everybody listening right now. The guy was engaged in it. Okay is your reader is an analytical guy like obama no but every day i mean he was there and they were discussing how to make america great again and that's what he did. Biden is not engaged at all in problem solving. He's just doing what they tell him. How do you say that with authority. Because i know people i know very high ranking people and there were already worried. They're already worried because they know it's such a short time between now and the midterms that if you get a one two punch chaos at the border and a listing economy and the also know that americans are paying fifty to seventy cents more for a gallon of gasoline. Thirty seven days after the guy was inaugurated. I mean that's just a fact and that's gonna go to a buck and a half by summer because the fossil fuel industry goes all right mr biden. You're gonna you're gonna hurt our business and you're gonna do the x. y. z. And we're gonna have to spend all this money to transition so we're gonna hold the folks down raise all the prices which is exactly what they're doing and this goes back to my analysis that americans don't know any of this they certainly know they're paying more at the gas pump right after know that i'm yelling at sei he'd down here in my town. Oh what are you doing. Two dollars and ten cents for any looking at me going. Hey mr ody's pay. what's on the pump. I sort of But they the media's not telling you any of this it's like oh joe's the greatest guy. Look at joe and jill chill ngo late. You know what they had. They had lasagna tonight delicious. So and they had a log in the fire. Let me. I know i loved that story Let me let me ask you About a big change. And i don't hear any Republicans and honestly. It doesn't bother me but it is a huge change. One that only obama really seemed to break. And that was when your president. And you're a former president. You shut up about the next president but that's gone. That is gone is gone and is that a good thing or a bad thing. I don't care adamy. I mean obama's on doing a podcast bruce springsteen and i used a clip last night on a bill o'reilly dot com broadcast and clip. Boys obama's changed as reparation stance. A little bit. It was well thought out. But he's talked for about a minute and thirty on. And bruce springsteen did not say a word. I don't know if bruce knows what reparations are. i'm not quite sure he was there. I was there this blank. Look on his face like oh what is this But anyway so obama's got the podcast You know he's going to go in and he's gonna say what he wants to say because he's making some money doing it so is if you were at cpac and you are speaking to the republicans. Yes i know. I thought today that the thing that i would Say you must now organize in your states and strengthened the states and make sure your passing all these laws to make sure that your state is solid on the on the election to every fan. Absolutely what would What advice would you give the republican party. That seems to be ready to host the trumped. Twenty twenty four flag and and and just start heading down that for the next four years. What advice would you give them. Well i if number one. The republican party has got to Have a sense of humor i i. It's and that sounds trite. But it isn't so right now they have. The independent block is growing in. America and people are bailing out of both parties. They don't wanna be republicans to democrats. They just want to be able to both for whoever you know they like. But you've got to kind of bring it down to a basis where everybody understands it. You can't do audio. You know ideological stuff so if you oppose the the bill of the transgender gays and all of this you gotta you gotta say look. We don't want to hurt them. We want to protect them. We understand that particularly children get battered But look at this. This arose a huge part of religious freedom but just keep it contained. Keep it so everyone could understand it. So i would say you have to be the party of logic. Okay that's what you need to be And then you have to have a sense of humor about your presentation so if you're gonna criticize biden you don't bring a sledgehammer you just you know Criticize him in a in a gentle way. That gets the point across that. This guy really is not engaged in solving any problems. You are gonna make. He's gonna make it a lot worse you're describing ronald reagan. Yeah but you know. Reagan was an ideologue And i think those days are over. I you know reagan was a firm conservative. Ideologue that the soviet union was evil. Those days in america are gone now. It's all presentation who can present the best and that's why trump won because he presented so much better than his republican opposition in sixteen. Okay let let me ask you one final question. Let's say and this is never going to happen Certainly never on a purpose. let's just say. Donald trump is hit by You know Joe biden's amtrak one day Complete coincidence who else is there besides donald trump that could pick up the mantle at this time kristie nome. The governor of south dakota love her. I knew it back see. Yeah what about Yeah florida governor. Rhonda's fantas ask but he you know. The republican party needs a new look and governor. Noem would present. That would you young. I might. I might put the santa's on the two and have known dissenters to santa strong. And you know. He did a good job in the kobe he did. He got battered. Probably the two best governors in covet. So you might put those two together but you need a new look if you're not gonna go with trump and and by the way if the economy does collapse then trump has got a lot. I think so too but if it doesn't if it just waivers and people are mad but they're not desperate man you might go for a new look and no one knows what's going to happen and trump. i mean he's so so volatile situation surrounding him. It just never ends. Yeah bill o'reilly thank you so much anything you want to talk about your new book. I mean if you preorder killing the mob and we talked about it last night The because it was the anniversary of mohammed ali who was ancash. Clay beaten sonny. Liston fight was fixed And we go into great detail and kilo. it wasn't one of the gambino crime family.

Trillion dollar in nineteen relief. Package we talked to a member of congress who has been shouting from the rooftops In sixty seconds. It's friday so if you've been living with pain and you wanna get your life back. I'm here to tell you. I understand firsthand what it's like i understand Getting up every morning. i can't do it another day. i get it. I've tried everything everything i mean. I i mean chinese best chinese medicine. I did that You know the poking needles in your ear lobes and all of your back. Yep done that Gone to the mayo clinic. Don knapp Gondolo two or three days at You know another other big hospital in new york on that nothing. Hey how about some really strong drugs. My rather not do that. But i've done that. And nothing worked. Until i tried relief factor. Some of it would work and would make me into somebody. I didn't want to be or it would work and then it would stop working. I've been taking relief factor for three years now. And i have to tell you i am back to my old self. I don't have that kind of pain anymore. and i i have relief factor to thank for it. Relieffactor dot com eight hundred five hundred eighty three eighty four eight hundred five hundred eighty three eighty four. It's relief factor dot com nicole. Mallya takase is the congress person brand new in the in the house from new york. She joins us now to give us the details on the one point nine. Trillion dollar cove nineteen relief package. Nicole how are you great. Great great to be with you. I appreciate you having me onto expose. What's actually happening in the spill. Yes so i read. I read a lot of stuff The media is busy spinning this. Of course as this is all going to help those states that are really need and all those people that are really in need. I don't read it that way can you. Can you fill us in with the facts on what is in this bill. Sure well first of all. I think what people need to understand that. There's a trillion dollars leftover from the previous package. So congress didn't take the time to really identify where the need is where we could potentially be shifting resources and ensuring that we came out with something that was tailored specific to the needs of struggling americans and small businesses. Wait we we wanna make sure. I understand this. There's a trillion dollars in some fictitious bank account that they've already approved that hasn't been sent out. That is correct so And that's education spun spending to reopen schools. Some of it is ppp. Money for small businesses. So so so the interesting thing enough with the education funding is that the cdc said it would cost twenty five billion to reopen school safely across america yet. They put sixty four billion dollars in the previous package with the majority of it. Unspent and as you know many schools including those in my city Remain closed and top of that. They want to put another hundred thirty billion dollars in this package with ninety five percent of that funding not being able to be spent until after the after the show so over. The estimate is to reopen schools. It would cost twenty five billion but between the unspent money in the last bill and the new bill. They are sending our schools. Two hundred billion dollars that is correct. And so what i say is only under a mismanage government when democrats are in control. Do things end up costing eight times as much as originally estimated so so what exactly is what did they say how. What is the response on two hundred million dollars for schools. Well there's been no response as a matter of fact They keep insisting that. This is for a reopening america schools. We know that's not the case number one because the estimates were an eighth of a what they're putting into this fund. The second thing is that The money is restricted to be used for over a year. So it's not emergency funding unless they anticipate that they're not going to reopen schools for a whole other year So give you an example in new york state. My state Governor cuomo did receive for dollars for school yet. Many of our schools remained closed throughout state just reopened middle schools in new york city. And as you know the schools chancellor just resigned about an hour ago And it's because i believe really because he hasn't been able to successfully roll out the opening of these schools and like the catholic schools have our city. Yeah may i just recommend of for anybody who is struggling to figure out how to open schools. The first thing you have to do is Teachers you're to report back to class on monday. If not you're fired that would be the first thing to do to open up schools. Maybe it's just me You also in this bill. are are We are we are finding now That there is a eighty six billion dollars of our tax dollars to rescue union pension funds. Yeah i mean look at. That's in there. There's a lot in there. Which is why we call it. The pelosi payoff bill. Not the actual covid relief bill. So it's not just You know the bail out for pensions. But you actually have a three point. Five billion dollars going overseas internationally for the global health fund for aids tuberculosis and malaria. Good cause but the thing is why is the amount of the american people picking up. Eighty percent the tab for this international organizations expenditures. Because that's what three point. Five billion dollars equates to and this is at a time when even our diplomats overseas haven't even had access to the vaccine and the other thing to show you how blow to this package is less than one percent goes to vaccine production and distribution and us any democrat or republican local leader national leader. And they will tell you that. The vaccine development distribution is the number one thing to get us back on track. So the fact that it's only equating for less than one percent. And i had to use siri by the way to to figure that. Out because you know calculators and go up to one trillion two point nine trillion dollars but When you calculate it using Siri or alexa. You'll find out that point Something like point. Seven percent of the entire package is going to set to be the number one priority that that is helping loaded. the this bill is nicole. is there any. You're new to congress so let me ask you are you. Is it worse than you thought. It would be or better or about what you expected. Well unfortunately it's it's a very polarizing and my first month wasn't great. It was a very polarizing first month. I'm you know the fact that we lost the senate was not helpful because there's no balance anymore They change the rules in this procedure. So that way. They don't even need any republican votes. They changed it from the sixty vote. Requirement They changed it to fifty one votes using what's called the budget reconciliation And so they've basically shut us out of this process and now we know why because they wanted to jam all this pork into this bill An as a new yorker. I can say look of course. I want my city and state to have money but he also want accountability. And i don't trust this mayor or governor I believe that they'll take the federal funds and they still will increase the taxes that are driving new yorkers out they're already talking about imposing higher income taxes and stock transfer tax Mayor de blasio increases the property tax every single year. Me just increased told on our roadways And so they're taking the money and they still gonna take from the people and what's interesting about the way. The democrats said this formula is that they changed it based on population to now based on employment rate so governors like governor cuomo and gavin. Newsom are actually being rewarded for shutting down their economies and driving people out of work. so it's very disheartening. To see how. This is playing out. But i was a member of the new york state legislature. Also in the minority. And i'm kind of used to the this these types of games being played But i'm hopeful that we'll be able to actually work together in a bipartisan fashion. On some things like the president said he wanted to do even though he hasn't tried it. So Was just talking to bill o'riley and he said what was happening in the new york house An assembly was that The democrats are going after cuomo. Not because of any of the scandals but because he's not radical enough. Do you believe that's true or is is is. The de are the democrats in new york waking up to cuomo. I think the democrats in new york Are getting a lot of pressure from their constituents who are demanding answers and families are demanding justice The governor made a bad mistake by implementing this order that mandy the nursing homes except covert positive patients. Then he under reported it to the public. The number of deaths that were as a result of that and then he stonewalled the legislature When they try to get answers And then his own chief of staff admitted that they were covering up the whole thing simply because they didn't want the department of justice to gain access to this information Then he bullied one of the democrat saying assembly members who stood up to him because his uncle died in a nursing home so i think they're getting very tired of the governor's antics Thousands of new yorkers. I've actually join me and adding their name at at at enough cuomo dot com to send a message that they want the governor to resign And this has only been exacerbated now by the fact that Young woman who was part of his administration has come forward with sexual harassment claims So i think the democrats really are starting to get tired of the governor You know he's been governor for three year terms. He does use a bullying tactics to get what he wants. He is indicative They think that he's out doing his welcome. Both with other democrats in the state but also at the people which is why his poll numbers have just been dropped so much last month so with him and De blasio are and. I would love to know this in california as well but you you are from new york so you might have a good handle on new york With cuomo and de blasio the wreckage that has been done with these policies especially because of covid Are people just wanting to get rid of them. Or they tying them also to the policies. That are so damaging. Well i they are. They are tying them to their policies because they're the ones who put forward these arbitrary restrictions these and deeded shutdowns that have heard local economy have led to thousands of people losing their jobs That have put small businesses people's livelihoods out and You know schools. The parents teachers and students they speak to want to go back to school. And that is very upsetting Children don't have school athletics anymore. Which is another big issue And there's not a lot of a lot of these restrictions that they put in place lacks common sense. You can go to the gym but you can't go to the yoga studio you can you. Can you can ice skate. And and you know you can go to an ice skating pavilion and skate. But you can't have hockey leaks. You know it just doesn't make any sense And so there's a lot of frustration and new york city would being treated differently than the rest of the state. The rest of the state is at fifty percent capacity for indoor dining new york. City was shut down for so long and finally we got twenty five percent and kept pushing. We got up more now with thirty five percent. Inching up toward fifty. But why are we being treated differently than the rest of the state so people are upset about this. They see the governor and the mayor had way too much power. And you know. The governor's power needs to be rescinded. I've said that You know repeatedly. I've been saying that for months. And the democrats keep dragging their feet but they finally have to go into it and take back their power as a co equal branch of government and work to just reopen the economy and get children back to school and get people back to work. I have to tell you. I think between What companies are have discovered with zoom and and virtual work etcetera etcetera and the absolute devastation. That has been done to manhattan and your district in southern brooklyn and staten island. I don't and i know you won't agree with us. I'm sure But i don't see new york city ever recovering to the con- the The city that it once was it least for a decade How how how are you. How is that area pay for all of the services that it needs and have promised when everybody's moving away companies are shut down you're absolutely right about the policies have been put in place that are driving people out. I do have hope that new york city will recover that We do have a mayor's race. And i'm hoping that somebody who will be You know really really tried to roll back some of the stuff that the mayor did. I mean look whether it be defunding. The police which was a completely ridiculous idea is led to his crime skyrocketing We have a lot of mismanagement a lot of mismanagement of our tax dollars. Which is why. I'm so concerned with billions more coming to new york But i do believe that It's up to the people. The people have to be vocal. They have to complain. I ran for mayor of new york city and twenty seventeen I think we'd be in a better position. They won that election Unfortunately this mayor spends more and more money and the problems get worse and worse. So that is the definition of mismanagement I think there's a lot of things we could be doing differently to tackle are homeless crisis to make sure our streets are safer to make sure that our trains are running to make sure that our children are getting a good education in person. You know the these are things that i think. Unfortunately government has just strayed from the basics of what they're supposed to be doing right. People expect you them safe. Give their kids a good education. Make sure traffic flow in the trains are running on time Making sure that there's an environment where can grow and unfortunately they've strayed into all sorts of areas. They get back to the basics. And that's what. I'm going to be pushing for speaking out for both here in washington and went on back home in new york city. Thank you so much congresswoman nicole maleeha takase from new york.

In nineteen twenty seven american socialist said the american people would never vote for socialism. But he said under the name of liberalism. The american people would adopt every fragment of the socialist program one of the traditional methods posing state design or socialism. Been by way of memphis easy to disguise a medical program as a humanitarian project. Now the american people if you put it to them about socialized medicine and gave them a chance to choose what unhesitatingly vote against so with the american people on record is not wanting socialized medicine congressman durant said if we can only break through and get our foot inside the door then we can expand the program after that. Let's see what the socialist themselves had to say about. They say this nation will be provided with a mechanism for socialized medicine capable of indefinite expansion in every direction until it includes the entire population. Well we can't say we haven't been worn in this country of ours. Took place the greatest revolution that has ever taken place in world history the only true revolution every other revolution simply exchanged one set of rules for another but here for the first time all thousands of years of man's relation to me a little group of men. The founding for the first time established the idea that you and i had within ourselves the god given right and ability to determine our own destiny. Write those letters now.

Surely as the sun will come up tomorrow and behind it will come other federal programs that will invade every area of freedom as we own it in this country until one day as norman. Thomas said we will awake defined that we have socialism. And if you don't do this. And if i don't do it one of these days you and i are to spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it once was like in america when men were free. How true Done by Nick daily our production guy That's ronald reagan. Obviously welcome to the glenn beck program. It is friday. Wanna tell you about the podcast that comes out tomorrow with tulsi gabbard. It is really fascinating. It really is this fascinating but i. I think it's important that we cover something that you just said. Why do you. Sometimes you say these things that are so profound in the moment or such what are use them because of just you're so rapid fire with great moments. We miss A jam the audience may have may have missed a gem just a few moments ago and i think the audience wants to settle in. Clear your mind. Just contemplate this brilliant analysis by glenn beck sausages desserts really yummy caught with a spoon style forks. Say fifty sort exactly is eight cut style. You know what that is. The copy says cut with a fork actual term for for stakes is cut with a spoon. And is i. I was thinking for a boon. Not fork and i forgot about the word steak right now and it's an omaha steak commercial. So why would you not really. But i just want to hear. What are you cutting shot up. Are you cutting the fork with a spoon. Yes one more time. I'm sorry with a spoon style. Is it a is it. A fork cuts like spoon. Cutting you know you. You did nothing i mean. Just there's a reason they gave that to you. Twenty just holding the hall of fame a word radio hall of fame members of the table. Bring that one out Hold on let me press this with the spleen style for that part of your acceptance speeches. You cut us spoon with h luck. I don't know how i got this job. I don't know how i keep this job. I really don't listen to other shows. I know how talented everybody else is. I listened. And i'm like they don't make any mistakes. They don't say ever would never say they've never say this hot with a spoon style for listen. I don't know how they do that. I know i must have had pictures of somebody that i never took nor did i know i have bought something and it was in like a pocket of some used jacket or something and errors. Like he's got that jacket you should put him on. The air are going to use it. I don't know what was in the jacket. I don't even know what jacket it was. I just don't understand why you would need as spoons for it. Jus- uses yuck shut. Why would four cal rights fool. All right different utensils separate your cutler is always trying to say. What's that. was that award again. Radio hall of fame. Wow i mean that's Again you had pictures of somebody in a jacket. I don't own. Here's the here's the thing. Could we go back to the show. Please cut with a spoon style forks. You talk to folks you know. It's so weird. I am more comfortable with this than if you are actually heaping. Praise on me. If you're saying you're a great they would rather have you point this out. That's how sad my life is surprisingly enough. I'm more comfortable. i know what you made. You feel awkward when when people say positive things really nice because it doesn't happen very often myself from my entire life. Well here's a great thing. You're standing in my shadow for just the last twenty five years now. Does that say what does that say about me. it's sad it's depressing when i think about it a lot. Well i can't drink anymore. So think how i feel Hurry tulsi gabbard yesterday. First of all oh my gosh. It was the most beautiful picture we've ever received. We're doing things remotely now. Because of covid and she was in hawaii and is she comes up on my screen and just like tulsi. I feel like. I'm doing an interview with a movie star. It was just so beautiful turns out. Her husband is a cinematographer and so he set up the little zoom call between us. You could tell it. Looks like he's on a movie set. Yes and of course she just is in hawaii so everything looks and she she's beautiful she's really beautiful But we had an honest conversation. The first thing i asked her was are you. Are you like a bernie sanders person. Who is saying stuff. Just to dupe. People on the other side are you. Are you a bernie. Sanders person that now has woken up. And like wow. That was crazy. What who are you. Because i can't put her in any box and she talks about you know it's the box thing. I'm not in a box. She she's interesting. I don't know what she's going to stand on every issue shrink. She has different reasoning again. I there's a lot of her policies. That i think are really really off the wall but in fact i don't even know what her feelings are on spoon styled forks for example she just seems to be completely however She she legitimately can't paint before on her. Why i didn't call him and say hey you should drain your sprinkler system. She can't pay for bernie sanders state chair. I believe for his own pain in two thousand sixteen. It seems totally disconnected from this person. I find myself agreeing with way. More often than i should. So i talked to her about principles we spent about an hour and fifteen minutes and it was really a great conversation between people don't really agree with with each other on some really important dallas And i. It's really a model for the way people should to should be able to come together And talking to her about principals not policies just principles. I would vote for her based on her principles and i would vote for her if that is indeed who she is and i think it i think it is certainly doesn't seem like she has a problem standing up to her party correct which i'd like it on both sides do to. We don't see a lot of it anymore on either side. I like somebody who's going to stand up and say you know what i thought sucks. I might be a democrat but this is dumb. Yeah i like that. Yeah i want someone who's going to be able to challenge that because let me just besides the fact that i think it's good for the country to have people like that. Yeah it's also not boring. It's it makes these things a little bit more interest. By the way you can see the tulsi gabbard interview at dropped yesterday on blaze. Tv you can watch it today as well or listen to it on Blaze tv dot com slash glenn Or you can get it wherever you get your podcast tomorrow. And it's worth watching. Because she's beautiful but she also you can in the eye and judge jury she lying or not. Does she really believe these things. Because i i put her into the first amendment I talked to her about the military What was going on how she felt about the all the federal troops there and and how you know during the during the inauguration. Should we have done that now. What happens to those people. She said some things that she was very clear on that. I have not heard really anyone willing to say About the military at least on the other side No way she's really fascinating. i think. Really really like this I think she has her priorities right. So what a spoon style be a hot coon style. Point to you plan that again. They have the combination and it gets a sport would be you're talking about. I mean it. You could've just said cut with a sport. Would you said a spoon. Styled fork caught with a spoon style forks. I have i have to make some money to keep paying your salary. Could you shock at the high for a waste of money hustler turf. If you have a lawn to mow the thing. I like about hustler. Turf is these lawnmowers for the industry. They were made for people who are cutting football fields. And you know the median in the middle of the road that you work really hard on and then some golfer drives across it in wrecks the whole thing It is it is a great lawnmower made for professionals and now after fifty five years after inventing the zero turn lawn more. These are available to you. They are made for your size lawn now but they have all of the. They're tough enough. Let's say you have. I don't know Quote friend comes over. And he's in you just say hey i'll meet you out front and his back is turned You can come up right behind him and that thing will chew that guy up in katamon do i. Don't know how many pieces and it will still give your lawn. A great look really really will copy. I don't really will know. But there's a spoon cut fork in this copy and a producer. That ends up dead in really. Don't buy some other more but before you do do yourself a favor find a hustler dealer and just test drive hustler hustler turf more. They're fantastic go hustler. Turf dot com hustler turf dot com cut with a spoon style program so the fifteen dollar. Minimum wage is is out of the Cove it bill. It was in the covid bill. There's so much in that bill. It was in the covid bill but the parliamentarian said gicc can't toe that right. I mean it's revenge of the nerds. Blatantly can't force through a minimum wage increase through reconciliation. That's not a thing. They i think they knew it wasn't a thing. They decided to give it a shot and they can now blame the parliamentarian for not getting it in. But they're going to try to get some hike in this. Don't think here you know you can do that. He's a monster exactly but like how. What is the percentage of that. Make the minimum wage. What is the percent i mean. What are we talking about here. What makes the minimum way make the minimum wage. Do you know the number. It's i'll give you a hint. It's been falling over the past few years. Ten percent ten percent would be. I guess it was ten percent about in one thousand nine hundred eighty one. Oh my but then it's been falling a little bit hurry me. Percent did fall below eight percent in one thousand nine hundred three five percent. It did fall the low five percent in nineteen eighty-seven two percent. It did fall below two percent in two thousand seven one percent it did fall between one. Below what percentage thousand nine hundred nine the actual percentages zero point. Eight percent of workers make the minimum wage below. Like i guess that means like maybe like illegal immigrants lanes getting paid on the minimum wage zero point eight percent make this and again though biggest thing at saying the in the world and by the way in that time if you look at the entire time and they've been complaining all like they haven't raised the minimum wage in all of this time. And it's it's only seven dollars and twenty five cents. It's been that way for many many years now however the entire time it's been at seven twenty five an hour. The median wage has gone up and up and up and up and up. Why why have to right. Why would these evil corporations all want to do is pay their workers nothing. Why do they keep raising this. And over and over and over frigates frigates the free market because they have to compete. So what is the average wage for people who are working a wage. I have clicked on at this time etienne wage. Which as i know you know is is a little different than average however the average is much higher than this but currently the average wage is fifteen dollars and thirty five cents fifteen dollars thirty five cents an hour so again. They're already over the. Yeah the one that the they wanna raise it to now. That's the median. The average is up over twenty dollars an hour now but still. It's not even close right and it's gone up and consistently up regardless of the change. No minimum wage changed in all this time it keeps going up and up and up and up and up. I wonder why. I wonder why they just don't tie a minimum wage to inflation tied to the cost of living. Why not because they need the argument. You need us or they're bad day. Set you on fire you starved. You need us. The glenn beck program.

Ep. 736 - The Mark Of The Fleeced

"We have some good news from dr fauci. I never thought. I would say that. But dr fauci just appeared on my pal alex michelson show and she said that he does not predict that there will be a vaccine mandate take listen. The fact is from the standpoint of practicality there is merit to that there are a lot of concerns and objections about discrimination for people who don't or big brother looking over you and giving you the the right or not to enter into a theater into a restaurant. it's a very controversial issue right now but you can understand that. There may be individual independent entities don at the level of the federal government. But there may be some school districts that would say unless you're vaccinated. You can't get in or some places of employment that say unless you're vaccinated. You can't come in. That's apart from abroad. Umbrella concern or control by the federal government. I don't think you're going to see a federal government mandate about that now. That is at least something of a good prediction. The problem for anyone familiar with dr fauci predictions is. They've all turned out to be wrong. So that's not great but even taking the answer for what. It is what that means that now. This issue of vaccine passports is up. To the governor's. I'm michael knowles. The michael knowles show. Welcome back to the show. My favorite comment yesterday from seeker finder.

The issue of the vaccine passports is up to the governor's the good news on this. As more and more republican governors seem poised to come out strongly against the vaccine passports governor tate reeves in mississippi is now joining ron to sandisk in saying no we oppose these covid passports. Do you think private businesses Should be banned from requiring vaccine passports. What what's your take on this. Well i don't support vaccine passports i. I don't think it's necessary. And i don't. I don't think it's a good thing to do In america great answer and tate reeves has been really good on on. This issue is good governor general. But he's been really good on this issue in particular But we're gonna have to get more specific here because jake tapper question was very specific he said. Do you support the right of businesses of private organizations to require these vaccine. Passports and governor reeves gives this broader answers as i do not support vaccine passports so certainly that would seem to imply that he doesn't support them at the state level the state mandating than to access certain government services. You need to show a vaccine passport and it would. I think he is saying that. He does not support at private businesses. Doing that either but it is a slightly different question. And i think that. We're gonna need to get real real specific on this. Because i i could see all the republicans being against the state mandate but i could see some wishes going in for allowing private businesses to require it but we cannot permit that folks if it is the government. Telling me that. I've got show my medical history and get injected with this thing in order to participate in civil life or it's a private business doing that i don't really care. I just don't wanna do it. I will not support any republican in the twenty twenty four presidential primary who does not vigorously oppose the vaccine passports. I think this is a good rule that the good news for a people in the senate and people congress is it seems to be a non issue for them if i thought she is right and this is not going to be a federal matter but this is going to affect governors because governors are going to have a whole lot of save or whether or not they are going in and people in state houses and state senators and that sort of thing presumably state senators and state. Assemblyman are not going to be running for president. But the governor's really might. This is a total line in the sand issue. There are many reasons why we should all oppose these vaccine passports and some parts of the right are going to gravitate towards certain reasons. Some of the right are gonna grab gravitate toward others. So you can. You can imagine the real you know. Get off my lawn libertarian. Right they're going to oppose these vaccine passports as a matter of liberties. You don't get to do this folks you don't get to demand not only that i get injected with the shot but that proved that to you everywhere. I go just to go buy a cup of coffee for the maybe less libertarian more traditional conservatives on the right this is a complete upending of our political order. This is an upending of our political institutions. Are traditions our american way of life for the rest of our ethical questions about these vaccines which vaccines were developed using old stem cell lines from aborted babies. Lots of bioethical questions here. I don't care which argument you gravitate toward this is the issue rhonda santa's down in florida has been. I think the leader as far as governors. Go on this issue. And it's why the left is going after him. Did you see this yesterday. i. I hope you saw this. I know that very few people who listen to this show watch sixty minutes because very few people generally watch sixty minutes anymore And hopefully it'll be fewer and fewer moving into the future sixty minutes total network news hit piece on rhonda santa's sixty minutes played in exchange between one of their reporters and rhonda santa's on an issue. Not really the only tangentially related to the vaccines. It's about an allegation of corruption and weather. A supermarket chain donated some money to run scientists in florida and so two santa gave them a special contract on the vaccine to total bs. It's completely bogus which we'll get to in a minute but just listen to the exchange as sixty minutes presents it we wanted to ask governor to santa's about the deal but he declined our requests for an interview. We caught up with them. South of orlando public says you know donated one hundred thousand dollars to your campaign and then you rewarded them with the exclusive rights to distribute the vaccination but first of all that what you're saying is wrong that's a fake narrative and that with the county mayor. I missed the administrator. I met with all the folks palm beach county. And i said here's some of the options we can do. More drive through sites we can give to hospitals we can do the public's and they said we think that would be the easiest thing for residents melissa mckinley. The county commissioner in the glades told us the governor never met with her about the public's deal the criticism is that it's paid to play. It's wrong. it's a fake narrative. I just disabused you of the narrative and you don't care about the facts because obviously i laid it out for you in a way. That is your refutable. It's clearly not isn't there no. You're wrong you're wrong you're wrong okay. Wow if you were to listen to that exchange. I think you'd say maybe there is some corruption because he didn't lay it out in a way. That's your refutable. He didn't take through anything he just made. This claim that he met with some mayors and county people and then some other county person said they did and then and there were some really good shots of the reporter loose smirking to santa's and saying this is corruption. Okay right. that's interesting. Thankfully we have the full footage of that exchange which went nothing like what that clip would suggest to play the whole exchange. Just take a listen to the first part of the exchange and compare it to what sixty minutes or so first of all. What you're saying is wrong. That's that's a fake narrative so first of all. When we did the first pharmacies that had it were cvs and walgreens and they had a long term care mission so they were going to the long term care facilities they got vaccine in the middle of december. They started going to the long term care facilities the third week of december to do ltcb's so that was their mission. That was very important and we trusted them to do that. As we got into january we want to expand the distribution points. So yes you at the county's yet some drive through sites. You had hospitals that. Were doing a lot. But we wanted to get it into communities more so we reached out to other retail pharmacies. Public's walmart obviously cvs and walgreens had that mission. And we said we're gonna we're gonna use your surgery done with that for the public's they were the first one to raise their hands say they were ready to go. And you know what we did it on a trial basis i had three counties i actually showed up that weekend and talk to seniors across four different publics. This goes on for like a minute. And a half. in addition to what we've already heard where he's laying out. Step-by-step exactly the plan. Say we didn't give this exclusive contract public. We started at cvs. We start then went to walgreens than we opened it up. Publicly was the first one that could do it. We did polls of the senior citizens we found out. Most senior citizens live within a mile of public. It's proven very popular. It's why we're leading the country in these goes on and on and on and on the reporter has nothing and then she keeps coming back and say well. This is bad and he says okay. Well i've disabused of this narrative. I guess you're not paying attention but i've just laid it out for you. Absolutely people should lose their jobs over what just happened in sixty minutes whatever producer or reporter quote unquote with that thing together should be fired and should never work in reporting again if they want to become leftist commentators on msnbc. That would be more honest more understandable but what they what they just did on sixty minutes is why they committed fraud on sixty minutes. Why are they doing this to disentis. They're doing it to him because they're afraid of him because they think that he would be a formidable presidential candidate and twenty twenty four. It's the same reason they're going after cruise for cancun i the whole time. Maybe i mentioned this at the time. When when the cruise in cancun story was the biggest story in the world. Why why was everybody going after cruise all the time because the left felt that he would it be a formidable candidate in two thousand twenty. Four they're doing it to santa's because he also would be a formidable candidate in twenty twenty four. They only go after people that they're afraid of. You're not gonna see sixty minute hippies. On john casick frankly if the left is not going after a republican politician. I am skeptical of that politician. I'm probably not going to support that politician. And i think You know i. I don't anticipate that. There's going to be some big expose on mitt romney it. Let's put it that way. Okay dissent us right now. Is one of the big targets. There are two or three big targets on the right. He's one of them and he stating with clarity. This is not just about government mandates on the vaccine this extends to pry that businesses as well.

Two six four zero zero zero. I wanna be crystal clear on this vaccine issue. Because i think that the vaccine passports it's an actual line in sand issue. I think that republicans who do not oppose this vigorously should not be taken seriously for twenty twenty four. This is going to come down to the state houses. So i'm really talking about the governors here. This is first of all at the bare minimum. These these guys need to come out against state mandated vaccine passports. But they need to go further than that actually. They need to ban businesses from demanding vaccine passports. But michael that's an incursion into the free market Not really it's just a basic defense of justice and our constitutional order and our rights. The santa's has been good on this. He stated with some clarity that he would not tolerate companies requiring vaccine worth. He says that would seem to extend beyond a private issue. And of course this is the case. Of course this is the case you know at least for the past twenty years or so republicans and conservatives have deluded ourselves pretend that there's this perfectly neat distinction between the public sphere and the private sphere. You know the private sector and the the politics and culture that there's this perfectly needs separation but there isn't obviously politics and its most basic sense old. Uncle aristotle taught us. This is how we all along together. It's what we all do together. And in our political tradition we carve out broad spaces where the government is not or at least. The federal government is not really expected to intrude even though from the very beginning of our country. Local government is that a huge about supposedly private matters. But someone wrote into me. And i thought it was a good question michael. How can conservatives support legislation that would prevent businesses from demanding the vaccine passport but also defend the baker in colorado. Who doesn't want to bake a cake for a gay wedding again. You know i. I don't even know what terms we're supposed to us anymore. There is not a contradiction here. The reason that there is not a contract on the surface. It seems like there's a contradiction were saying in the one case in colorado that businesses should be able to do whatever they want. But we're saying the case of vaccine passports. Businesses should not be able to do whatever they want. How is this not a contradiction because politics has both form and substance so there is the question the the really abstract question should businesses be able to do whatever they want and then there's the substantive question what are the businesses doing in the case of the baker in colorado. You have an artist. Read a a cake artist. A man who is using his craft and his skill and the question is can you or should you compel him to do something. That violates his conscience and specifically that violates the traditional view of christianity. And i think the answer to that really specific question is no you. Shouldn't you shouldn't force a christian baker to adopt the religion of them not just because of the abstract principle but also be as christianity's better than woke him and it's more in keeping with our actual political traditions in this country with regard to the vaccine passports and private businesses. The question is should businesses be permitted to demand your medical history therefore demand that you show your medical history too big tech companies. Who are developing these. These vaccine passports. Should they require. Should businesses be able to require you to get this. Very hastily developed vaccine was developed in the last six months or rather within six months within the last year. You know a vaccine has not by very definition doesn't has not been tested for long term consequences should on that particular substantive question should businesses be able to do that and i think no but michael if you start talking about the substance if you start talking about the actual practical issues at play why then you're better than the left No i don't think so. I think conservatives are really good at defending very abstract principles over the last twenty years sometimes. They're defending principals. They shouldn't even defend by the way but there they've gotten really bad at defending anything practical. Anything prudent anything no conservative. They're not they're not really good at the santa's has this right. A lot of other people have this wrong. Where are the other governors on this by by last count there were twenty seven republican governors right now. So far i've seen to santa's and tate reeves come out pretty strongly against the stuff where the other ones i wanna hear from all the other republican governors. I just saw the governor of arkansas. This guy aco hutchinson. He just vetoed a transgender bill. It's a there was. There was a bill that was passed through the arkansas state house. That said that little children should not be pumped full of cross sex hormones and hutchinson. The republican governor. Republican governor of arkansas vetoed the bill. This guy asa hutchinson thinks that little kids should be pumped full of cross sex hormones. Something tells me governor. Hutchinson could benefit from the attachment of a few biological structures that he apparently lax. But while we're waiting for that medical procedure to take place. He should be removed from office. He has no judgment. The the reason that issue in particular matters is because if if you do not pay it ties in with the question of substance more actual more arguments we're talking about if you do not possess the judgment to know that you shouldn't pump little boys full of cross sex hormones to make them look a little bit more like little girls before they go through puberty. If you if you don't have that judgment you should not hold any public office be elected dog catcher and i think that republicans should move as swiftly as they possibly can to remove acer hutchinson from office in arkansas. Absolutely ridiculous stuff because they're all living in fear. They're living in fear of being called a bigot. Or this or that is what hutchinson said was. He said this transgender. This is just a product of the culture war. so what. You're going to concede the culture war a cool. Thanks buddy good grief. I i hope that president trump lives a long life very long life and then i hope when he goes to his eternal reward. I hope that he donates his body to science and his spine to republicans. Because it's pathetic. What some of them are doing of instilling fear Black lives matter is threatening to burn down the country again. If they don't get the outcome they want in the trial of derek. Chauvin the cop who was involved in the death of george. Floyd there is a a woman. I've never heard of her. But apparently she's popular on social media my eccles. She's a model and black lives matter activist and she just took to tiktok and threatened to burn some stuff down. If they don't get the outcome they want in the trial. If george floyd murderer is not sentenced just know the all hell is going to break loose. Don't be surprised when buildings on fire. That woman is a terrorist. I'm not using hyperbolic language here. Terrorism is the targeting of civilians to achieve political purposes. So i guess she didn't specify which buildings would be on fire. But if you can infer from the way that. Blm torched the country last summer. If you can infer from that and deduce that there would be private buildings private businesses on fire as well as government buildings then. What she is doing is making a criminal threat to burn places down if we do not subvert our justice system to give her what she wants. Why are we tolerating. What is the most basic definition of terrorism. Why why are people going along with this way. Mitt romney marching with blm terrorists. Why is he doing that. Why are these ripon. I never wanna hear another word about the capitol hill riot so long as people like this lady can get away with making criminal threats and in the case of blm and antifa actually carrying up threats as they did for six months in the united states. I don't wanna hear a peep about it about the trump est insurrectionists. Just i just don't wanna hear it because it's so disingenuous. It is in such bad faith and it's not just some lady mouthing off on tiktok. I mean she identifies herself with the organization that she identifies herself with the blm movement. But it's not just it's not just some mouthy millennial making idle threats. This sort of thing is supported by the most powerful people in the democrat liberal establishment. How many democrat politicians voiced their support for. Blm last summer. They burned down the country. Kamala harris sitting vice-president raised money to bail these people out of jail. She wasn't bailing the peaceful protesters out of jail. The peaceful protesters weren't in jail. The arsonists and the criminals were in jail and she raised money to bail them out and then she went on national television and said this shouldn't stop. This should keep going. Joe biden staff members raised money for these criminals and yet we are supposed to. Clutch are pearls. Donald trump's tweets. Or something give me a break. Gosh it makes me so tense.

The mainstream left defends embraces sometimes directly joins the fringes of the far left and then they run away from responsibility when they get called out for it so jen psaki just had to do some damage control joe biden joe biden came out and he effectively called for a boycott of georgia for the major league baseball for the all star game. Now the all star game is leaving georgia and they're taking away lots and lots of money and economic opportunity now. People are very upset about this including democrat politicians in georgia. So jen psaki was asked about this. Gosh does joe biden. Regret what he did and and she just denied his statement outright so he was not dictating. What major league baseball should do that. That they should dictating. They should move the all star game That was their decision. They made that decision and as he stated earlier. He certainly sports that we've not Not asked corporations to take specific actions. That's not our focus. Here are focused is on and continuing to convey that it's important that voting is easier not harder That when there are laws in place that make it harder. We certainly expressed an opposition to those laws and we all believe private sector entities are going to make decisions. And that's their Their role to do so what. I'm conveying what i can speak to is what our focus is on and what our role is here from the white house and what his energies will be directed toward. Joe biden never said that that. Mlb should pull the all star game. He never said it okay. That's a conspiracy theory that he would have said that. stop it. stop accusing him of saying things. He didn't say. joe what. Say you mr president. What do you think about the possibility that baseball decides to move their all star game out of atlanta because of this political issue. I think today's professional athletes are active incredibly responsibly. I would strongly support them doing that. People look to them. they're leaders. Look at what's happened with the nba. Is well look what's happened across the board. The very people who were victimized. The most are the people who are the leaders in these in these various sports. And it's just not right. This is jim crow on steroids. What they're doing in georgia. Mr president would you support the mlb pulling their all star game at of georgia. I would strongly support them doing that. I would strongly support them doing that. He never said that. Oh according to jen psaki joe biden said what we just heard him say and why would he support them doing that because he says that. The new georgia law is jim crow on steroids. Now there's an irony here because one of the places that mlb could move the all star game would be new york except There's a little snag here. New york has more restrictive voter laws in georgia even after the georgia awful jim crow law so if georgia is jim crow. What does that make new york if republican georgia is jim crow on steroids. The new york must be the antebellum south. But it's run by democrats. Weird is that i guess like the antebellum south was run by. Democrats isn't georgia now. Sort of right. it's there. There's a republican governor but two democratic senators not the first time that a biden is tried to avoid responsibilities responsibility for his mistakes. There's a an even clearer. Example than joe that would be hunter hunter biden who everyone's talking about his sex scandals right now because he's got lots and lots of sex scandals in their gross and some of them are probably criminal and lots of them were just immoral and creepy and weird. But he's got lots of criminal issues to drugs and the possible materials on his laptop anyway. The real scandal is that job. Joe biden's son. Hunter leveraged his father's name to get oodles and oodles of money at a foreign governments. Joe biden with making policy on at the time ukraine china. He was a leveraging that name to get very lucrative deals and in some cases he succeeded. So because joe biden's son is in legal trouble. He's being asked. If you're gonna cop a plea deal. Is he going to try to get out of this federal investigation. These under and hundred biden says absolutely not gonna cop a plea deal. He's going to maintain his innocence because he is one hundred percent. Certain that the doj will clear him. There's a current department of justice investigation into your finances. What is it about. can you say anything like it. But i can say this. I'm cooperating completely. And i am absolutely certain. One hundred percent certain that at the end of the investigation that i will be cleared of any wrongdoing. You're one hundred percent. One hundred percent. Certain of it and all i can do is cooperate and and trust in the process. Of course he's one hundred percent. Certain i'm just about one hundred percent certain to that he'll be clear not because i don't think that he committed crimes. I think it is pretty clear. That hundred biden committed crimes. But he's he's a biden. He's about he's been getting away with this for years there. There have been reports that other peaks into his private life and his finances and possible crimes by federal agencies have been covered up over the years. He's been getting away with this for so long. Why would that change now. Are that changed now that his father is president. I just don't buy it. The federal agencies have been covering up for the democratic establishment for a long time because in many ways they're captured by the democratic establishment. The other you know watching that interview of hunter biden. It also reminds me. Don't do drugs don't you. I know it seems like a simple thing to say. you know. it's it's like i'm a. I'm an instructor in deir. Don't do drugs kids. Not not even once. This is your brain on drugs. That interview reminded me of charlie sheen interviews from ten years ago. Remember when short. Charlie sheen came out. He was talking about how he's he's got tiger blood and he was all crazy and it looked like he was all coked out all the time that kind of jittery awkward. It's not the way you want to be. It reminds me that vice warps. You not just the drugs but all sorts of vice warp. You hundred biden is a handsome guy who was born with virtually at some sadness in his life obviously but basically every privilege that a guy could have and he turned out rotten just about as rotten as gets because of ice and now he doesn't look good. He looks ugly. He has been contorted and corrupted by vice and sin is a real things and these are real things that we think about during holy week and during easter. Don't do it. Don't do not end up like hunter even though he's probably going to get away with his crimes at as a matter of the laws a matter of law enforcement but you can see them on his face. He doesn't look good. He has not aged very well. Why is he going to get away. Wise hunter gonna get away with this stuff because there's two sets of rules in this country. There's one set of rules for the in crowd. Call them the elite skull them. The establishment called whatever you want and there's another set rules for everyday americans and that's just that is one set of rules for illegal aliens who are being used by the democrat establishment to gain political power. And there's another set of rules for americans so americans for a year of untold. Kenley house cannot christmas. Kenneth thanksgiving don't see your family can have a funeral for your dead loved ones now. If you do leave your house you need to test negative for covid. You have to show a passport to prove you've gotten the vaccine in the variants and whatever but if those same people. They left their house and they immediately went to mexico and then they ran across the border. Legally it'd be fine there. There's an estimated ten percent of illegal aliens entering our country right now having covid ten percent one in ten of the record number of foreign nationals flooding into our country and even when they do get caught very often they're released have covert many of them are released without even being tested as the. Da secretary admitted a couple of weeks. Ago that's fine that's okay. We don't need to worry about covid when it's involving people who might give democrats more political power. We just need to worry about covid when it's people who might challenge that democrat hegemony two sets of rules speaking of dubious public health policies. Rachel levine mr dr. rachel levine. Is the assistant secretary of health and human services. Rachel levine is a man who pretends to be a woman and we are all impelled or compelled to pretend that he is a woman as well. There was a question raised by rand. Paul when rachel levine was up for his position at that was whether or not rachel levine would have any sort of objectivity on the question of giving little boys cross sex hormones to make them look a little bit more like little girls and fundamentally damage their biology their biochemistry at because rachel levine has this psychological disorder whereby he thinks that he's a woman very much wants to be a woman and he pretends to be one and read no absolutely. I can be totally objective. It's totally fun well. Now rachel levine. Who speak on these matters. Because he's the assistant secretary of health is coming out and supporting. I guess not really all that different from the republican governor of arkansas. Whatever he's worth at. Rachel levine is now supporting giving little kids the cross sex hormones here. He is describing the the reasoning many states across the country are considering and passing bills. That would outlaw puberty blockers and hormone treatment for transgender youth. I mean you worked in pennsylvania as a pediatrician. You stand adolescent medicine. Well how do you view these bills. Well i think that they're very challenging. I think it's really challenging to st state. Legislators and governors targeting. Lgbtq people particularly Vulnerable transgender youth. And so i will do everything. I can to advocate for transgender and lgbtq youth to educate people and states about lgbtq and specifically transgender issues and and work towards a fairness and equality. Well see. I don't think this is a political issue at all. This is about fairness and equality and about specifically health equity which is part of my portfolio. This is not a political issue at all. Wow how brazen that is whether or not we should have laws that allow perverts to pump little kids full of cross sex hormones. That's not a political issue because it's so obvious that we should. That's that's what he is implying here. He's so that we should pump these little kids full of the wrong hormones and delay or prevent their puberty and utilize their bodies. It's so obvious that it shouldn't even be a topic of legitimate political debate. We should just go right ahead and do it. This is the progressive view of politics. Which is that. Everything is political except for politics. Ever your sneakers or political your tacos or political your baseball as political but politics is not that's going to be decided by experts specifically scientists specifically in public health. You know experts who are clearly have a lot of expertise and so wise like this man. rachel levine. Who calls himself a woman that we need to basically outsource all of our politics to them and then we don't need these crazy debates anymore. It's just a matter of equity. It should go without saying that in no healthy country. Would rachel levine. Be the assistant secretary of health. It is obvious it. It should go without saying now. I think it must go without saying. I'm not sure that i'm allowed to say that. Am i allowed to say that. It is objectively disordered. That this guy is the assistant secretary of health. Not just because of what he says on this one issue. But more broadly my. I don't know that i'm allowed to say that anymore. Because social media companies have gone full in on this. Everyone seems to be going and be be. I mean not the majority of i think the majority of the american people don't think you should pumped little johnny full of hormones to make them look like little jane so then. How is this being advanced even by some squish republican governors. Like the guy in arkansas. Because as i described in my book speechless controlling words controlling minds then left has engaged in a century. long wharf position whereby they don't need to make the arguments individually. It's not like a normal. It's not like a war of maneuver where they just lobbed their argument and their refuted and you go back and forth. They've engaged in a position where the attain positions of influence throughout the society not just government but in universities notably big corporate america big tack elsewhere and then gradually then. Suddenly they exercise that power and the people are overwhelmed. The common sense is overwhelmed. The the radicals who developed this kind of call. It woke and political correctness. Or whatever it is that prevents me from saying that. It's weird that rachel levine. Is the assistant health secretary. The people who develop this described what is going on right now in great detail. They predicted it and they called for this is this is what i outlined in my book and and republicans and conservatives have been utterly feckless at stopping because they've fallen for the trap that these very very clever political thinkers on the left laid out. I do think there is a way out of this But suppose you'll have to read my book to figure out what the trick is because it's a little bit of a lengthy argument. We'll we'll talk about it more on this show but i do. I do lay it out there. There is some good news though on this big tech censorship. Front which that one of the last great supreme court justices clarence thomas has given conservatives at least cause to hope that we might be able to win. Clarence thomas was just the court. Broadly was just a presented with some cases regarding big tech. They did not make any big decisions. It's not like there was some big landmark case. That just came out on big tech actually. The court decided not to hear a couple of cases. But in making those decisions clarence. Thomas fired a shot across the bow. And he he endorsed a pretty strong conservative argument to stop these big tech companies from controlling our speech and censoring everybody. Thomas compared big tech giant's not to a little private companies and should build your own twitter if you don't like he compared them to common carriers and public accommodations good argument because they control the flow of speech in our public square and in a republic speech is politics and politics his speech he wrote quote even if digital platforms are not close enough to come carriers legislatures might still be able to treat digital platforms like places of public accommodation. Although definitions between jurisdictions vary a company or narrowly as a place of public accommodation if it provides lodging food entertainment or other services to the public in general he added that twitter and other digital platforms bear resemblance to that definition now some conservatives are going to recoil at this argument because thomas is basically saying look if places of public accommodation stores hotels e sorts of things if they are not permitted to discriminate than twitter shouldn't be able to either some conservatives are going to say no. I don't like that argument because actually you know. In my really abstract view of things in my ideal world the places of public accommodation they would be able to have freedom of association to and this is not a conservative argument. That's why we need to lose with dignity. What thomas is doing is bringing us back to reality the not the way that our government should work in. The wonderful perfect abstracted minds of some berry. Eric thinkers some very Out of it theory thinkers a better way to put it but how the government actually works how society actually works and he's saying look. The left is maybe distorting or perverting law. They've been doing it for a long time. And they've been using it to their advantage. We need to use the law as it currently works the political regime as it currently exists to our advantage to. We shouldn't just see the ground to the left. I think he makes a great point. I don't i don't think. Republicans should schill for big corporations as a matter of religious principle anymore. Okay we should should reward good corporations with our business and we should. We should treat corporations fairly. We shouldn't just wield the power of the state arbitrarily but we should wield political power when it is just give me an example of an out of control corporation spirit airlines just punished some travelers a young family. Now some people say that traveling on spirit airlines is punishment enough. It is in itself punishment. I've traveled on that airline quite a bit because it's pretty cheap. There was a family young woman. Seven months pregnant. Got young kids. Special needs kid. They're all wearing their masks. The little little kid was not wearing a mask and some crazy stewardess at spirit airlines demanded that they leave the plan. Take a lesson from. I didn't want to do on saudi. Were maybe we're living in our very own invesco circle this david trailers. Everything's i'll make sure the special role unit on sorry mark. Run noncompliance boo. Make the baby in the special needs kid. Wear the mask beep boop boop boop noncompliance get off now. Now i don't think so. I don't think corporations should be allowed to do that. I don't think that spirit airlines is a private company in this very abstract that we like to think of this firm distinction between public and private. I think there is a lot of government regulation of these airlines and and the governments are bringing up the mask mandates but in some cases the corporations are pushing more than the government. And i care. I care about the practical effect of this what what happened on that. Airline is unjust should not be permitted to happen in a just society. Speaking of justice is less to my. I flew on spirit thankfully with some some years ago. Now i was when i first visited. La right now l. a. is calling for homeless shelters effectively. Mental asylums is so many people on the street or just complete lunatics drug addicts and people who have who have psychological disorders prohibit them from living a normal life especially if they're not taking their meds so la city council member. Mike bonin has proposed. Sheltering the city's homeless population at local beaches on the pacific ocean ocean. Front property for free sounds great. Sign me up where we're gonna. Why do i do that. Obviously elliot residents very upset about this a very recent. La resident. I was there you pay a lot of money to live in. La and most people. Don't get to live anywhere near the beach. you know you. If you're lucky. i lived. Maybe i don't know five miles from the beach. I was cool. But i certainly wasn't touching ocean front property now i guess i just need to become a heroin addict and live on the street and then get ocean front property No this is a very bad idea. But i'm not opposed to the idea of building homeless shelters or really more specifically mental asylums. This shows us a lot of what we've been talking about the limits of liberty. We closed down the insane. Asylums about fifty to seventy years ago in the united states out of a misguided understanding of compassionate liberty. We said it was wrong for these people To be locked up in these places and we need to let them go free. And you know we've got some medications so they can take that and then they'll go free but they wouldn't take the medication and letting them go. Free basically led them to living in squalor on the beach. We have mental asylums in the country. It's just under overpasses. it's just unregulated. It's just in parks on sidewalks. We still have them. They're just unsafe and ugly and we get to delude ourselves and pretend that we're so compassionate letting these people be free. No we're we're committing a grave injustice. We need to have a much more serious understanding of our liberty. Not these bumper sticker slogans that the leftist pushing but which the right has indulged as well. We need to get a little more down to earth a little bit more practical. Stop stop allowing ourselves to be pushed around. Stop stop giving more and more power to an increasingly bizarre liberal elite because they're retaining more and more power each day they're not giving any of it up and the more we let this go on the longer. We'll let this go on the less likely we will be at stopping him. I'm michael moses. The michael knowles show samar if you enjoyed this episode. don't forget to subscribe.

Waiter busboy. things like that. I one of my most famous ones is scraping gum off the floor and Grocery stores just to keep my web development business alive did that for many years and then moved to florida and just really leaned into the web development business picked up small jobs here and there twenty grand thirty grand forty grand. Did that for about ten years. was successful at it and just started yelling into my phone about the frustrations about what was going on and make an instagram videos. Never really thought much would become of it and one day a video went viral. That was back in august. And i was like all right. This is something that could have macro impact. That would allow me to be anywhere and everywhere. And i saw that it could do good and full support me financially. And gimme the places like this and allow my life to really blossom into the potential that i thought that had being a web developer was like i can only get so far and i. I didn't feel like it used my magic. As i like to say i would say you got some magic bro thanksgiving. Yeah that's a fun place to be in life. When you figure out that you can actually make a living and survive and do well not just survive but thrive with with some just thoughts that we have that we have exacts really cool. Can we order to make that happen. It's hard to make that happen on your own. Like i didn't set out like all right. I'm gonna be influenced her. I was just doing what i was doing building up. The skill sets necessary so that i could survive no matter what and this was just one of many things that i throw at the wall that just so happen to catch at the very right moment with a very right thing at the very right time and i was like all right. I'm gonna lean into that you know it's got to be honest with me here so you start a fourteen years old web development business. It's really so instead like trying to be on the casting couch where you taking the approach of like i'm gonna be the web developer to develop by pornhub on the back end fourteen year old. No it's actually because the internet when you're when you're i mean you don't see commerce. There's only one thing on the internet. That's right yeah well. The way that the story went up in a small town we used to. We used to ride our bike to the town pool to like with people lived in a like. There's only a couple of kids in my neighborhood. So i was riding my bike to the town pool announced thirteen and i crashed and broke my collarbone and i had no way to interact socially with people over the summer solid. Just like i need something. So i started on geo cities this old web development to and i would put like memes and funny gifts and just message it to my friends and that was kind of how my social activity going and then when i got back to school people like i saw your website. That's hilarious so. I realized that if i put in work on the weekend or at night i could go to school in a gal like social cloud funny without having to hand to hand prove that was funny so it was just like the more and more than i built. It was like. I saw your post this morning. I saw your picture this morning and there was no facebook. there was no. I don't even know. The mice was really being used at the time. And i was just like. This is my instrument. I can use this. I can write. I can type take photos. And i can show up at school and people like that dude's hilarious and it just like built the social cloud and allowed me to do something one time work really hard and then had it ripple throughout my socialized and that was kind of how it all began. I wasn't just like all right. I'm gonna build websites again then. I was When i was a senior in high school one of the football coaches was like. Hey we're building adirondack chairs in the In the shop class. He's like we really need a website for it so i built a website form for free. 'cause i wanna impress them. Get more playing time on the football field. And a couple months later i was like. How did you guys do with that is call. We sold hundred and seventy-five chairs. I'm like hundred and ten dollars a chair by one hundred and seventy five dollars mike. Holy shit. that's that's real money. I was like. I could really turn this into a career. So after i finished high school i was like i got really. Lean into this and try to monetize. That was really the key like that was the first thing that kind of let me know that it was a real thing so dude so i found you from dude your video like the first video i saw like i just got to be real. I smoked a little bit of The dow's lettuce as i've attended you and bro. I watched a video. Fucking almost pissed. My pants. I'm like this hilarious. And i remember i was sending it to tommy and a a smith. We will cause this whole year. We've all been talking on the back in about all the fucking crazy shit shit you and i talk about and you're talking about your video of what's going on and did what i liked about. It was that it wasn't like everybody else at all. it's not just bitching. It's not just this fucking wrong. We all know it's fucking wrong. E you know but taken that common-sense approach. I feel like people here a little bit different when it's presented in a humorous way as opposed to like you know taking it so personal like everybody right now. They're so they take it all so personally bro. Like it's not an attack on you. Someone has a different belief system. Right you know what i mean. And we've got this culture now in the world where where. We can't have conversations. Were guys hate to break you but if we can have conversations enough is getting fixed. You know what i'm saying. And what i appreciate most about what you're doing. Is that do to your making it light. You're making it funny. You know it's It's true you know. But it's i think people here that and see your videos and at least they think a little bit. Yeah you know what i'm saying. It opens them up. I say that it's the trojan horse for for real information is comedy. Yes like if. I can get you in of me. Run around or dance around in my driveway or whatever it is. I'm doing it's like you can find some humor in it. Even if you don't agree with me. And i just say like trojan horse of comedy bringing that type of information like i used to watch the daily show back in the day. That was my first introduction to real. Political commentary was watching. Jon stewart and i thought john stewart was hilarious and naturally as a young person. It's like everybody kinda starts out democratic you kind of start out left leaning like peace and love and unity that makes sense that free college for everybody all get free college. Sounds like i started on that direction. Then it's like as everybody started leaning into trump was like. Why does everybody hate this dude. I really got a really investigate this morning. I had i had been into ron paul and saw trump come along. I'm like all right. I should really focus on this. Because this is kind of a key to be more free being more financially free being more aware of how the world ebbs and flows and just kind of like drew me into it yet dude. it's funny. We were talking in the gym earlier. It's like the more it's like. The media has done such a hit job on this dude that that they're almost like killing themselves now because like they keep going keep going keep going now even people on the left or like whoa hold on what the fuck is going on. We just one election okay. Our guys in an why the fuck you guys still talking about this dude right you know and people people are starting to seat at and then they're starting to see all these promises that have been made that are not being kept at all you know and is rising right. It's affecting people on the street. Which you know. I don't want to say i told you so. I told you so motherfuckers like this is going to affect people and the story. That's been told about this person this the last president. We've had the things that people criticize him on are just not fucking true and people are starting to see that you know. They're starting to see that. This kids in cages shit is actually being perpetuated by the guy who they just elected. We're starting to see that you know What real racism actually looks like when you say Hey guys black. People in hispanic people aren't smart enough to use the computer. Yeah like bro. that's fucking racist. If you know what. I'm saying and people are starting to see this shit on fold and now they're starting to look even more at trump like wait a minute. Do we just fucking berry this dude for you know. Yeah i know it's just that like the senate part about trump. I know you guys have alluded to before is like the guy can't get out of his own way sometimes strike. He said it's on his own day says thing gets opened himself up for shots and it's like if you didn't say those things that wouldn't have been open. It's like you do so many things so well and so well executed in such a well oiled machine but then it's like you stumble on these little things. It's it's unfortunate like nobody can be perfect. Obviously but it's unfortunate that he was not able to get out of his own way. Sometimes i acquaint that in my and i'm sure you know a lot of people are gonna shake their head. Yes and a lot of people are going to say no. You're fucking wrong. But this is just how i see it. I equate that to a doctor with bad bedside manner all right so like. I'm sick right and i wanted to go to the best fucking doctor and i go to the fucking doctor. He's like Andy your fattest fuck You fucking smoke weed almost every day You you know like he starts telling me all this shit right. Yeah and i'm like fuck this guy but it's all true and i'm trying to get healthy and and fix it. So what do i. What do i want someone to sit there and tell me i'm okay. Even i'm not or do i want the truth. And that's how i see what's going on with him and a lot of people just don't want to hear fuck effects you know. It's it's unfortunate. I'm nervous about what's what's going to happen. Move our i. I don't know if i'm nervous. Because i know i know what i'm willing to do to protect my own personal freedom my people but i think a lot of people fucking of shit. It's kind of like politics. Yeah it's kinda like we understand off line before is like when the pendulum swings. It's like it can violently swing back in the other direction. Because it's like this guy saying things that are like blatantly compartmentalizing people by race like yahoo. These people don't understand. How are you going to make a statement like that. And no one cared no big statefarm. We'll do it in an at personally. You know. I don't subscribe to the Identity politics. i don't subscribe to critical race theory. Those aren't things that i believe in it all like i don't believe in them like you. People want to have a discussion. I'm just like i don't believe that shit at all so there's no point in talking about it because i believe in things like you know what we were taught growing up. I believe that all men are created equal. I believe that color shouldn't matter. I believe that character should matter. Those are things. Dr martin luther king one of the greatest americans of all time tot and all these things that are being taught now are contradictory to that and so we have to decide. Do we subscribe to the shit that they're putting out now or do we describe our subscribe to the thoughts of one of the greatest. Humans has ever fucking lived. You know what i mean and we. We can't because it's not. It's not both know 'cause they're they're contradictory. And so i don't really i think you know as americans we a choice to make because do driving people crazy because people are like well. How can we say this when win. How can we say that everybody's inherently racist or evil or this or that when we're supposed to all get along and love each other and and not see color and help each other progress like it can't be both you know and so we have to make a decision. What are we going to be about here in this country. I know what i'm going to be about. I'm gonna be about the same shit i've always been about. Which is dude if you're fucking a human. I'm a treat. You like a human. If i don't care what where you come from or what you'd like to have sex. I don't give a fuck that. Yeah i care if you do your fucking job or if i mean contribute yeah or if you know. The two plus two is four. Yeah ooh the legal say anything. Dr martin luther king believed the two plus two is four. I bro literally saw that video. And i thought to myself. There's no fucking way. I just saw that right yeah. There's literally my interesting watching them on notice. Who said that to. I wasn't a black person so that was a far left crazy. Purple hair fucking white person and like dude. Here we allow. She's not white. We can't clamor. Or i would or not why technically we're fourteen percent irish. We're all kinds of seven percent on. Dj's team yeah. I mean look dude. Here's the thing we we have to understand that this country is no different then writing in a fucking boat. Okay half you. Mother fuckers want to drill holes in own boat that you're in and you're not realizing it and if we continue down that path this will not continue to be the country that all of you enjoy and enter proud of but i'll take a step further to okay that boats signal water. I think if we move on this the the path that we are the boat's going to sing right. Which means everybody fuck water. The problem with that is is that guess. What is people that can swim. Yeah people they gonna fucking drowned. Yeah and that's the way i like. There is between like that. That's going to be the ultimate him that we're going to be facing here shortly. Either you're going to be able to swim and some people are gonna be able to swim just fine and get on and they move through the bullshit people to drown out of people that we lose because of this bullshit paddle when in reality people need to be trying to find fucking duct tape and buckets to get this water off the ship while negate news is. We're gonna figure out about that whole you talking shit about swimming thing. I can swim fine. I've seen him swim. Is good much better swimmer to me. I looked he stayed in my house for a few weeks In the guest house. I got in the pool. This my fucking bathroom water out your mouth. Say the cartoon these like. That's him right in the pool. One big fucking hippo in late but it was beautiful now. but it's the reality of it. You know i personally do. I'm i'm tired of seeing the race. Bantering gas lighting bullshit. Like i'm i'm over dude. It's fake eight division. So you've asked yourself right like so like two plus two four. That's racist to say. But what evidence like like or why people inherently racist. What evidence like like what is the real like whatever yet zero well the and the real the real. The real problem here. Doing this is this. Is the real problem that nobody's fucking talking about it. All is that by over like by calling everything racist. You're making nothing racist and what's happening now. Yeah the actual and so. How do we identify who the fucking real racist sar. Yeah when everybody's racist and everything's racist the other thing too is people forget that like the world is a competition and and the united states is competing against the other nations of the world and the easiest way defeated opponent is to get them to fight amongst themselves. Yeah it's like you get us going at each other. We're not paying attention. The land that's being grabbed up all the resources that are being brought up all the other people that are advancing right along on their merry way as we all bullshit about nothing about inconsequential things that let us not succeed in the world. And meanwhile everyone else is eaten our lunch quietly. Yeah we don't pay attention and we're gonna wake up right and she's going be gone. We're not going to be number one anymore. And then it's going to be real hard to get back up there especially after we've done all this and shipped all of our manufacturing overseas and all of our ip overseas and all these varieties of other things. It's like we're not paying attention to the other teams competing against us. And it's tragic. And what's fucked up bobby. Is that the though all those countries they don't see us as black white hispanic rhianna asian americans. They see us as fuck americans. I would try to say this for fucking ten years this this race division is a waste of everybody's fucking time everybody's energy it's fucking fake division. If you go out in the streets and you talk to a person that looks different than you. Ninety nine point nine percent of the time it goes really fucking. Well you know. I do but by time is gonna go better than expected. I'd say that dj people don't fuck like i don't. I can't fucking understand it. Like i can't understand it. This is one of the most diverse countries readily of any country in the world. it's like a few. It'll look even look at like china. For example the vast majority of people in china are chinese. If you look at the united states like we're one of the most racially diverse a were races. Yeah that doesn't even add up and it's a perfect example of all of the things that they that they pump it out to us or explain to us that are just blatantly not true but if you look deep beneath the surface then you're just like yeah. We must be resolved. Dude what we have to follow dude bro. What we have to figure out is that is that it's dude. It's them selling us that bill of goods and then uh un fucking hating each other and then profiting. Yeah like guys. This is not black white police this that the other this is five hundred dollar fuckers in washington dc versus us and how they can gain from us having disruption amongst ourselves. That's it and and dude to buy into anything else is ignorant. It's just ignorant. You don't understand what's going on. That's how i see. Why the asab. We're watching a clip. And i think it was last night when i saw the two plus two thing and was talking about you. Know the Why people are inherently racist. There was it was kind of in a similar thing. And yeah and i wrote it down on my brain. 'cause it's like wrote donna. My brain that also caught on love. Dj whatever internal therapy. But i thought instantly thought to myself you know my kids on a playground at school. They they don't care if the kids black or chinese are they don't care if he's muslim. When i enter. Goes the baseball practice on saturday. Muslim children there and they you know they have their little head garment on or whatever it's called and guess what he didn't give a fuck fuck you know why because he doesn't give a fuck so it's like understanding that amen. Maybe we actually do get along. Maybe we actually all do like each other. Because i've never gone. And i go in all the time to places and say hello. I would say the only thing that the news is made. Is that initial conversation with somebody who doesn't look like you. They make the initial movement. Were just a little bit. But i would never stops fucking it up right but it's real and it's like well wait a minute. I'm buying into their shit. Yeah that's never thought like that. Before i never ever ever shows you the power of the nation and especially if you're thinking about it is learned behavior. That's the thing that really that scares me. A lot is like when you look at the fact that they're teaching this to children that otherwise wouldn't even think that racism was a thing and a lot of the things are generational to. It's like you see your grandfather your great grandfather. Whatever and it's like now that generations past and then it goes less and less and less over time and unfortunately that's how it that's how a lot of things go but the fact that they're teaching racism to someone that to a young kid. That doesn't even know a racism. Even is at all as i understand how they're getting there but you're not just inherently racist. Just like your kids like they don't they would never know or care or know the difference anyways like you watch. Tv as a young person. It impresses on you. And you're like wait. Everybody's very wait. I am racist. then you have to. You have to over. Correct the racist that racism that you didn't even have yeah unfortunate how you can take that step further. I don't know what his or her whatever he doesn't bring people together right. Yeah well. I don't know what his or her. What's the medical director Rachel levine rachel levine. Have you guys watched any of this shit. Yeah on okay on the on the slow roll here. He's getting quicker than better learning to pay attention to bit but man listen. I can't watch this shit. My fucking account i. It's it's so it's so frustrating that it distracts you from actually doing what the fuck you gotta do or because fucking into reality because you hear all the shit on the moment you step out your fucking house not like that and it's like what the fuck is happened. Rachel levine was giving a talk. And i believe it was dated like twenty seventeen and it was talking about hormone blocking and how you should delay onset puberty puberty because maybe the female wants to be male and we should block puberty from happening. Because something about like you know. She wants to wear a dad's tool belt. Then she should be given. I'm sitting here thinking my fucking son walks around my wife high heels. You know what. I'm saying like i did that when i was young. Young interesting way man riding my car. I'm not going to do that because he was being higher now. But it's fuck fucked up and she said it's finished i close. I should said that. Just what you wanna make sure that they don't go through the wrong puberty what. Yeah the way this lady's god. That's what i thought my brain so what you will play. Okay that's pretty territory. Man like the minute that we start fucking with nature and the way things are all trying to pretend like things aren't the way they are like dude. Look i don't care who you wanna be with. I don't care if you're gay. I don't care if you wanna dress up as a man or a woman but there's man and woman it's biologic. It's chromosome chromosome chromosomes dude at science. You know you guys all want to say fucking loose little bay the science. Well that's fucking science here right and there's no science that says otherwise and like do we kiss selectively choose which facts and a real problem people understand when a fucking fact is a fact is a fucking truth that has shown to be true evidence. And whether you like it or not. Yeah well that's right and we cannot as a society selectively. Choose which facts were going to say are facts and in which was just going to pretend are. We just can't right dude. i'm sorry. This is my personal belief. And i do. I have friends that are transgender. People my friends and my family that are fucking trains Like in my my direct family. I love those people. Good fucking people. And but i doubt it's fucking it is what it is like and dude we now work. We're creating the scenario in in our society where we're taking out pronouns and taking out this and changing fucking this and fucking cia. Mr potato head is no longer mr shit you know. Mr potato has no longer misprint. he's just potato head. That'd be about mrs potato. Oh dude a woman we all fuck it saw it. Yes a man and a woman like bro. Listen you do. Do you guys listening like you're thinking like oh. Yeah that's fucking crazy. That's where most of this confusion is coming from that segment of the world and we and that's less than one percent of the people and less than one percent of the people are dictating the policy. And the fucking facts for the rest of the ninety nine percent dude. Listen somebody has to fucking step up and draw fucking line in the sand saying no. It doesn't mean i'm bigoted towards you. It just means this is the fucking facts like dude week. This the united states is no different than a business. I'm not gonna make the business. You and i are not going to sit here and look fucking report and say well that fucking that says says this but fuck that true. We're fucking lose you know. And that's what we're doing as a country right now for people's feelings yep and like dude. Why can't we just have a conversation. Like that's exactly what i was. Just say is thoughts sauce and the free exchange of ideas and conversations are how human beings evolved. That's how we all get better. Learn by being able to talk about it. The huge problem in the hazard of all this stuff is that by taking out the ability for us to talk about it in an open forum without being demonized. It's like you're slowing down our ability to evolve in learn because we can't talk about it so it's like well you can't talk about transgender because you're not transgender. You can't talk about a black person's life because you're not black. You can't talk about this because you don't fit into that area and also by the way that's offensive. And now we're gonna shut you down again. Just slows the evolution of all of us learning and being better all those mother. Fuckers can talk about white people right. But they ain't right. I'm just saying like whoa dude. If we're gonna have rules in society. I think the rule should be equally applied. Everybody goes back a couple of weeks. The the double standards. What's ruining this entirety. I mean double standards and ethically wrong. It's ethically wrong and a lot of you guys listening. Participating by being passive about it silent majority the reason. The world's fucked up right now because the word silent in majority you know all these guys who are going out these guys listening right now and i've been telling you this all year you're going out in public. You're wearing your fucking mask. You're doing the dance. You're going home and bitching about it. Your bishop by freedoms get dude. You guys write those people. I'm talking to you right now. You are the ones costing the country. The fucking freedoms period. Because you know what's wrong but you don't have the courage to live it or up for it and that's a problem. We could get along with the fucking the silent thing but look where that's gotten us now. It's gotten us to a point. Where where like dude. There's legitimate fucking coca cola like we started the show doing a fucking campaign in their company to be less white. Tell me how that's okay. It's not okay okay. No it's not everybody will. Nobody wants a target on their back. And that's the thing is just like everybody. At least the mainstream media and the general the general zeitgeist is like. If you say the wrong thing we destroy you. Destroy your ability to work your ability to make money. Your ability to disseminate free thought your ability to have any any stature whatsoever in society. We're going to destroy you if you say the wrong thing. So it's everybody's just like. I don't wanna to put a target on my back alley. Go vote for trump and get exactly. That's the thing is like this is counterproductive to human evolution by not allowing us to talk about this shit conversations how evolved. That's how everything is better. That is the solution to any and all problems in my opinion conversations and the fact that we're limiting them on social limiting them in the public square. It's like why don't have the right skin color to talk about this. I'm not the right. Whatever to talk about this. It's like this is so counterproductive and we're going progress a lot slower and other nations and other competitors aren't doing that and they're they're gonna they're gonna down. Oh yeah yeah they're gonna take our fucking shit exactly and do not only that It's interesting you said that because when we did the show We did a show right after george. Floyd happened in the black square controversy and everything and it was funny. Because what i found out which i didn't know Beforehand i it never occurred to me doesn't make perfect sense now but nobody likes to talk about race. Nobody do when we talked about. Dude i got so many messages from black people that were like bro I don't like to talk about race. Either uncomfortable and i never had never really occurred to me right like i never like it makes perfect sense like and you mean we're alike yet this is like we. I just hadn't thought get like nobody likes to talk about. Were the only people that likes to talk about race. Are racists logothetis magnum. Think in terms of race exactly great point. I'd look at it like this. The same we've been saying like those who are who are accusing of all it is bullshit. They're the ones that are typically. Do i the only people that are so fucking concern with race are fucking races. That's that's my dude. I kinda like the guy says. I never steal from your never steal from never steal from you. Who the person the says. Oh i'm not lying. Got no you're probably the one fucking line. Okay yeah exactly got to tell you the truth. You just gotta listen. Yeah absolutely and they have been for fucking years. We'll just time to start being aware of. Yeah that's a fucking point. I you know because dude we have a lot. We have listeners from every segment on the show you know. It's an entrepreneur show at heart so we get you know we got men women All differences all different sexual orientations You know and guys we gotta figure out a way to get along man like this shitting fun. I'm not having fun you guys. You know what. I'm saying. Like i have phone every day but i mean i'm not having fun in in that room. I i don't know i also feel like there's some young leaders need to step fuck up. You know we got all these old motherfuckers and washington trying to hang onto their power by any means necessary. I think it's time for us to vote these motherfuckers away if we can still vote. I mean we don't even know if the voting is going to be okay The fact that we can't have you know verified voting in two thousand and twenty one you. There's no reason there's zero fucking reasons. Zero zero fucking reason. It should not be completely controlled with an id and there's no this is a i can other reasons racist honestly but they want us to have the real. Id so fucking fly state to state. That's right so do anything funky over packs passport into fuck. Fuck you a fucking. Id card vote. yeah. I'm sorry that's a right thing to do. A fucking countries early and until we have that a lot of people and i would say i say a lot of the left to. They understand that like if this turns bad for them. They're not going to count either. Because i get a lot of people hit me up. And they're like. Yeah bro my guy one but it does make me really fucking nervous. If she doesn't go to you know like it should. I've never heard one. You know a lot of these lousy controversial topics are a lot of these scenarios. You're gonna leave like maybe here some signs of the other side right kind of like you know. We actually makes buchan sense. Get that the voter. Id thing i've never like. Why would why would course it makes sense. It makes perfect sense. They could fuck and do whatever the fuck they want. If there's no fucking id so wouldn't we all be on one team together unless okay. We should all agree on that because they sold us a bill of goods. That it's fucking racist will talk about her exact justification was that will you know people in urban areas. Don't know how to vote. They don't know how to go to the dmv jars rice house so they can't vote fucking racist. That thought is fucked up. You see what i'm fuck like. All the standard yeah exactly to say an whole nother race or group of people is not capable of going to get a fucking driver's license and go to fucking vote is totally racist. The whole fahd's races. I mean couldn't you just right before they vote. Have a machine right there. That is their idea. That checks on card. Okay if they're going to go by. We could find a million solutions. They are purposefully. Not solving the problem. So that they can still keep doing the fucking they want. And until we all figured out the fuck out and agree on it and stop saying. We'll you're fucking white supremacist. Because you fucking one build a business and make like this ridiculous shit until we stopped that. We're gonna continue to get fucked right to ask by those motherfucker. So that's my that's my point is like hey might fucking lube. You say we got it all come together his true with a baseball bat like a moment one us on the walking dead. That's more like it. What did you smile that. Like a little tangling worked out by. Yeah yeah yeah yeah no. That's my point is like okay. You might not agree with everything but we do agree on this. Say like you might not like right. Left-center whatever but if your vote matters which is your matter on both sides of the fucking i don't i don't care who you exactly fucking really care. Their accounts sit home. Run all right one nothing years and that's the point. The point is that so obvious that that should be a fucking. The wait is and we're not doing it. And until it's done do maybe. This is the point of bobby. Beaner what's gonna be called verify. Vote dot com. Yeah sounds like a pretty good one. I think the other thing too is just like the fact that we have we have silent jets. That can travel faster than the speed of sound. We could shoot a missile from hundred miles away. They could hit a target perfectly. But we can't figure out how to count paper without stopping in the middle of the night dude. What the hell is wrong. Just tried to run asleep. We'll come back in the morning. It's like fucking joking. We're gonna we're gonna we're gonna shut it down you see that. They're passing the lot of fucking extend that time frame now. Great so not only. Are they trying to not sell the problem. They're trying to pass a law. Right fucking now gives them fourteen more days to count votes dude. That's fucking wrong. Is and i don't care who the fuck you voted for. That's wrong and it's going to cost us fucking freedom you guys think all well here just bitter because trump no. That has nothing to do with it as if you listen to. What the fuck. I've said a million times. I have plenty of problems with donald trump. I just thought he was the better fucking solution to our problem. This time. If i could hand fucking selected kennedy and building from fucking scratch it would be different but guess what. We can't do that so but i think we can all agree if i common ground. That fucking bro. We're we're we're americans. It matters that we are competitive in the world. Economy in the world society We've all enjoyed the freedoms that this country has been fucking built upon all of us all of us. Everyone of you have enjoyed it. If you don't think so go to fuck in haiti for a fucking week go to fucking somalia for fucking week. Go to fuck in europe dude. It's talked to those people. We have plenty of bosnian people here at work at our business. That are like bro. You americans are fucking dumb like you don't even understand what the fuck you guys are doing real by the way. I hear it every day from our bosnian people. Here they're do. You guys are fucking stupid and you know when at what point are we going to say like i'm just. Here's my my concern. The reason i've been so vocal guys. I love talking about making money. I love talking about balling out. I love talking about business. I love talking about wins for fucking love but the reason i have been talking about this shit for a year guys. 'cause i'm fucking very nervous that we're gonna lose the ability to all of that. What's like a duty. It's almost like it's almost like it calls. Because it's like you look around like this is all fucked. And i'm tired of complaining about it. Yeah i have to. It's like it's like kind of why. Like i imagine people go to war like after nine eleven like we'll final step up who's stepping up. I'm stepping up. Its that's the type of thing it's an information war. And i i feel a duty even though it's like i'm making comedy videos. And whatever but it's like this is changing the discourse in us very small but meaningful way. So it's just like if it's like that duty calls to to step up and try to do something and just complain about it all the time. Yeah it's unfortunate. But that's what i'm sure you feel. The exact same thing is like this is fucked. And if i don't i don't at least do something to broadcast this doodoo. It'd be much easier for me to just talk about the same old shit right. You know what. I'm sayin' and not disturb anybody in anybody angry but you know like dude. I gaza whether you understand it or not. I'm saying what i say. Because i care about your fucking future yours even if you disagree with me you know what i'm saying and i don't know all the shit every answer but i know this i know we're all getting fucked with right now. I know i'm not. I'm smart enough. That i swore enough to know that we don't actually hate each other. I'm smart enough to know that we have a lot more in common than we fucking think we do and honestly i am old enough to know that the last three or four or five years eight years maybe ten years we have regressed in terms of our ability as a culture to get along as americans. We have regressed for ten years straight and that bothers me man because that makes me feel like you know i'm forty fucking years old. It makes me feel like this is my responsibility and i fucking drop the ball like on and i know that sounds silly but that's how i feel about it. You know i remember those nightmares about dropping. Football's yeah well. That happened quite a bit. I remember. I remember when i was younger. I remember having this conversation with my parents. And i'm dislike. I feel so disenfranchised in two thousand eight when it was just like. I'm supposed to be in my core years now. I'm supposed to be able to go out and get a good job and and live the american dream as it were and it's just like oh the banks went to shit. Oh you can't get a job. Oh everybody's destroying those like. How could you guys let this happen. And i remember in two thousand fifteen. I remember just thinking to myself like wait a second. I'm about to be in the core vocal years like these are the now. It's me now now. I can't turn fifty and complain about how. Because i let it happen like i have to do something. If i'm gonna be able to complain about it later it's like i have to try to do something now because if not now then when it's like. This is the time that i had the ability to do it so while there has to speaking of that you know i asked you earlier and i like you to repeat what you said. How much hey did you get when you started doing this. Yeah a lot. Less than i expected i would have okay and do. That's what people that's why people will not do it. Yup because you're afraid of some shit that doesn't really happen right like you hear these stories of this cancel shared bro guys. Most people most people want the same shit. They don't like that. That cancel shit comes from that far left five percent of the people. Like the fucking fucker which you begin with. Yeah right. they're not they. Don't they fucking hate you anyway. So there isn't a make whether you stay quiet or not. Yeah you know. I think i forget the quote. I wish i could repeat it verbatim but it was something along the lines of like if you wanna cause no stir if you wanna 'cause no No issues say nothing. Do nothing be nothing and it's just like if you don't expect to take shots like the only way to do it is to just be silent and be nothing. Yeah so it's like you're going to get that no matter. What but the overwhelming outpouring support. That i got was just like it seemed uncommon. It seemed like that. I wish somebody would have let me know that. Yeah i would have stepped out in front a lot earlier. Had i known that it wasn't going to destroy my entire life. Yeah and that's what that was like. I remember crossing that bridge and being like you know what i work for myself. If anybody could take a shot it's me. I'm going to be good. Like i'm good enough on the inside that no matter what anybody says to me. I'm going to be fine. No matter what. I'm still gonna be able to create an income. I'm still going to have a roof over my head. have a car. Have parents friends that care for me. No matter what else like. I could take some shots. I'll just go and cross this bridge and it was just like the other side of it was so much overwhelming support. I would have never anticipated. And i wish that that message would get out more so that people understand like that is the silent majority and that there is a lot of support on the other side. And there's there's a lot more good there than most people think do. It's interesting because a lot of people won't say anything but they will support those things. Yes you know. And i wish i. I wish you guys who are doing that i we. I speak for both of us. 'cause i know we both appreciate those people autonet. Yeah but it would be nice if you guys can join us like say for sure. Yeah yeah it's needed. It's a requirement. Yes like remember like when i first people start asking the like. What's your van. Mullets event marijuana. Donate your money to support. The cause. And i was like never fuck and million years. Thought somebody would just fire me off van mo just thanked me for what was going on. People seem like sixty dollars on minimum. Like i've never been mode somebody to thank them what to do. I'll buy a product. I'll get something in return but it's that type of shit. You could never see that until you're in it's like until you cross that line you would never understand what good there is another side and like you said it is necessary. This is a requirement is no longer this is no longer optional. This is a prerequisite to success. I for sure yet especially for the country that we love. That's done so many things. i like. We have to do this. It's not just like d that step out if you can like you must do this. Yeah we're we're or we're going to be toast. Yeah it is what it is man. It's the truth. I believe that to be literally true. Yes yeah it's it's interesting man. I never thought. In million billion fucking years that i would even consider ever ever even like one percent chance of like that i would go do politics. Yes an but like now. I hate these motherfucker so much that is when to go in and fucking rackham. You don't saying. Oh for sure. Because i do the fucking selfishness and the greed and the the the fact that like some of these people a lot of these people are willing to sell the rights of american citizens down the drain for some money. It did it just fucking irritates. Fuck me i thought. I think it's still resorted country. I think it's so outrageous. How the political sphere is not dictated or the success is not dictated in the same way that businesses if you guys cut some corners consistently for a couple of months you would get noticed they would cut you. You lose that distribution you lose all those other stores just toppled down on your shortcuts whereas these guys can slap you in the face of this in plain sight and then raised their own income. And just like yeah. We're gonna sells more women. Give ourselves more time off. They can literally do it right in your face and because political whatever is so like i'm just gonna live my life because nobody wants to think about it. They're able to get away with. It ran in plain sight whereas business you would be destroyed because the market dictates whether nice succeed whereas with them there's no market. It's just like up. I don't wanna pay attention and there you go now. There is no free market competition. Exactly i think that was my like you know. Trump no trump like trump trump. I think that was honestly why i liked. The man is because he really had nothing to gain. You know the humidity the whether he's an asshole you don't like him or whatever that is i don't share that emotional belief because he lost fifty percents wealth by being present. Everything's a loose. And so like i don't look at like the emotional side. He can act like an asshole but the principle in which the guy operated. I i actually respected a great deal because he go head to head with china he tells fucking foreign car for you. Ain't fucking piss. My people in i get down with that like i can foc- bro. That's american like dude. You that the left dude. Listen those people. China they have so much influence on our media system and our movies and everything that we do that they invest in those companies and then they have power over those companies to put the message that they want. Otherwise the money gets people average fucking human thinks this is conspiracy theory. It's not these people. Pay these people to say certain shit to us to get us to do shit and people think is fucking crazy that no that is what's happening. That's fucking happening. And so you have to understand that when you're watching a movie or when you're watching the news no matter what it is that yes. This country is wealthy and not this country that want or there is wealthy enough to fucking pay. It's no different than a company running influence or program they're paying all the influencers to fucking shit. It's it's the same fucking thing except they're doing it with the fucking mainstream people that you guys. All assume are untouchable and her are doing their job. And so do these people tell us this and this and this and this and this and what they tell us is that we should never go to wish. Why the bro. Of course we should go fucking be be strong with other countries bro. They want those people are not a fucking france and what they do. Is they send a message downstream through the all these channels to the average american citizen that we should not be. We should be friendly with them. We should be this with them. We should be that with them when they're not here to hurt us will share. What the fuck would you think they're gonna pay them to say he's not to think of it like this. Like are the bully on the playground. Just because you try to make friends with the bully doesn't stop you from getting your ass wolves just because i took it fuck dude and just because he fuck it tells. You ought dj. I'm i'm your body next to me a lunch. That don't mean here can eat your mother fucking french fries like dude rule number one. That's rule number one. Modern fries fucking thought to like when people say well how can say up. No obligation to budget will listen. You understand the president. He has remember the this. No knock commentary on on that. I don't think people understand how much like information at his hands. That guy had so he's not to just make like comments or statements about something and not be one hundred percent fula knowledgeable about what he's talking about does happen doesn't happen so he's not just it's not like he's just talking out of his ass like no. He's been briefed. He knows something that none of us in this room probably know you've got to trust him. Yeah you to trust him. I don't know man it's the biden's going to call them. Their friends were friends right. There's just haven't cultural dude. You know the average the the it was like eight now. I don't know i remember. The stat was a strong majority. I'm saying like seventy to eighty percent of people had not even heard of the hunter biden. Laptop china scandal About the mattress about the pictures and the crazy shit. I'm talking about the money. The money being transferred to him. Yeah next people didn't even know that it was two weeks before the election. The only fucking new source that covered it was fox news and the media had done such a good job at discrediting fox news. That people thought it was bullshit and dude. It's not bullshit. There's a federal investigation going on right now into the president of the united states. And his fucking son about taking fucking money from china. And we're talking about billions of fucking dollars. Yeah or even just coverage the acquaintanceship average fucking human doesn't even think that's true right it is true right will like like you were saying before it's like if you can if you if a country for a fed idea can have you if they create financial reliance on them like for example. Let's say that you buy up all the advertisements for particular tv station. I gets to the point where all the other people are now out of the market. They're not buying those same ads. Then if you say hey we're gonna pull our ads now. You're relying on them financially. So now you kinda shot. You don't have to say anything you can just be like. Oh you know you probably shouldn't. I'm not telling you what to say. But like you say that. And that's what they're doing like they create all this financial reliance where all these things are intertwined by like. Hey i'm your buddy i'm your friend. I'm your pal. Don't worry but then they create this reliance so that if they were to pull it out you would really lose and that's why everybody's just like kind of covering it up without even being told to cover it up because they're just like we don't want to lose those advertisers then use any business for that example. Yeah exactly what. Detained financial reliance and. Then it's like you take it away. Were gone yeah. I bet you fox news ain't sellin another mother fucking pillow commercial to a different company for expensive money. Boy he's got. He's buying up cheap as nobody else's advertising. Roman i know a little bit about ads and how they work on our end. Good haven't gotten you have one. Did you buy one dude fucking one my fucker think about it all four people that do the right number but is it a good pillow like i to like i do. Honestly i don't even know continent of the chain of diesel like go through the whole fucking commercial row. It's it's a is the the sacred area of visa. Yeah yeah just. Everybody is aware. This is the the pillow king on fox news. I mean literally the guy. The guy buys every fucking advertise slot. To bobby's point on fox news. I mean it's like it's like his commercial after commercial them back. Have mrs ads for like his his bible like he's bible. Let's hear heroes as spread. The word of god. Yeah like it seems like a pretty great dude. I saw him speak at the turning. Point event in miami and the guy is a really crazy story now and like he is. He's very thankful it gives back. I mean the guy contributes a lot of money in the end. He tries to do right in the world. Can't can't slight the guy. I i like him by his pillow. Since because you said that. I'm kidding. I mean i don't have much dude you on. I won't you bill. I think coke national my sleeve of cola really fucked themselves noon on the means by the polar bear fired. A polar bear to apologize sitting there. And he's like he sees the news article where he's just like what the fuck that's the other thing man in lot. Zik passing the board broke. Because it's a fucking whoa culture man and like deer. I really am. I think about it again. It's like imagined the decision. That's made i mean. These are smart people right. This is a financial decision. This is not a weakness decision. It's like more people than agree with this ideology by this soda. We have to do. This can really that. But i bet the vast majority of people that by coke probably do and that's the thing is like this is a financial decision in my opinion saying the people that by code think that people need to be less white. I think that. I think it's opposite. I think i think it's the. I'm just saying that a massive business like coca-cola. I'm just making an assumption. He's saying they're making a decision based off of this and this is the decision. They came to that that they would that they would be. It would protect their business. More to be woke than to not be woke. See price with wrong. no. I'm not saying i disagree with you. I'm saying i disagree with them. Don't send that was the conclusion that what he's saying is a bunch of smart people. Got a fucking room and said hey man well is the we need to go. Mind fucking bong if seen time and time again. That cancel culture does not work. You've seen it with. Goya you see like all these businesses that have tried to ban attack. They do better enjoy for example one thousand percent better like be after fucking happen like no no no that you can cancel people by you. Can't cancel companies. That's the that's the thing. So what happens. Is these people. They go at big companies and the companies. Then everybody hears about it. And everybody's like fuck. I'm supporting them. Coke got fucking diko. What i'm saying like pepsi but the other thing is to do is like you know if the call the other point to this like cancel culture is gonna end. We gotta stop fucking being like them. Yes you know. And so. That's why i'm not like. Hey for coke right. I make a joke out of it. You know what i mean like. Hey you guys are fucking idiots. But you know. I'm still gonna drink cokes. Don't say i'm not going to be like this high now. I will go out of my way to support people. That are getting fucking hammered. But you know we want to end the shit. We gotta be bigger than it. We'll see there's the thing is like you just said it right there. It's like okay. You're going to continue drinking coke because you don't believe in the cancel mentality. Well all those people that are on the other side that would cancel coke would stop drinking coke. So they're like all right. No no position means that the woke people go away. Yeah going woke means that we get the woke and the people that don't care on the other side. They don't believe in cancelling stay to. It's the financial decision. That's what i'm saying. I don't know if people fucking agree with me. I think most people most white people. I talk to your like fuck coke. Yeah yeah. I'm just saying my personal opinion. I don't contributed things. I don't believe in. I don't know that. I would see me calling people out and shit i. I'd bet the vast majority of people don't try not to make those types decisions about individual things like the soda that they drink with. They're like whatever soda or they or they are not even aware of it in the first place but the point is like by being woken getting all that. Good press you. You prevent those people from leaving because you're not being woke. Yeah whereas all the people to the small population without pissing off the big and well and as far as we're concerned it's the majority at least it certainly is out in the mainstream so it's positive press that is true what it's the actual majority. No i don't either. No i just think that. It's i think that it's the most. It's the it's people. It's the people that are the most vocal. Yes but it's like there's a lot of people that just sit in like i don't care soda soda like i would say i would say most people said there but the people that are the lower the people that do care. Let's call it forty percent. The woke ones make up a whole lot. More of the ones that are talking about seated at. I'm under the. This is just total speculation but i actually think that there is not as many of those people out there as what they try to make us believe. There is an because dude. If you look like how hard the media cells that fearmongering of you better get in line refund. Cancel you it it just. I don't see. I don't see in real world like i don't see it like when i go out in public when i go to differ cities i i don't see the things they're saying are true. I see a lot of people who are fucking fed up with america. And they're like dude. You know what this is bullshit. And i feel like they're trying to sell us a bill of goods. There's there's this group of people out there that are so fucking happy and they believe in all this progressive shit and these are the majority. Do dessau true that. And i personally believe. That's a huge reason why he didn't see biden. Try to have a rally. I think it's y you don't y they had in the military fucking now. I white house. I think they're trying to create the perception that these there's this group of people that there really isn't right. Yeah we'll because so that so everybody else shows fuck up yes also all of the people that are in different whenever they get challenged on it. They just go to whatever they heard. Yeah most people said fries. It's mob mental. Nobody wants to be on the losing team. Everyone wants to be on. The winning team just inherently tribal by nature. So it's like you wanna be on the good side so the the eighty five percent of people that don't care or have no position. They're just like you. Challenge him on it. Though i got on the woke side on the. I'm with the team. Yeah with team. I'll follow whatever they say but really really don't care what you say when you go out into nature people are not talking about this. They're not thinking about this. They're not acting this way but they control all the ways that they disseminate. Yeah that's if everybody just turned the tv off. Imagine how the discourse. When i did it would be insane. Wear like this. Make fun of me on a watch them. But i don't fuck and watch your guess and this is the other thing. is you know. These people woke people. The alzheimer's thirsty people's they're just craving for fucking attention and they never fucking got it anywhere else and now their opportunity to get under little fucking white horse races to get under neutral horse. Spotted horse blind. Lack rhino could be tan. White and black dyke davonte tan. Only davey. tony sorry. I didn't you know three nine. Three post ninth grade different damon date. Dj is gonna be wanna borrow my last night. Tv only for seller bad motherfucker. Your for celebrate. You'd have to extra points to los angeles for two extra points that i got fucking badham sidetracked bro. You can't tell this story My student it's now so we'll tell later i we'll talk later. My boy being knows these thirsty people who have never really for the most part done anything in life. They've never made their way on social because they've never stood for fucking anything built anything made anything and unfortunately they're usually white people they fucking champion this fucking rally around but it and then they go out and just try to scream and yell and everybody and all the little fucking nerds together and in her little nerd campaign they all fucked go mob mentality go after everybody like. These are the same mother. Fuckers who two years ago. We're on the bullying campaign and now they're the bullies of the fucking internet and the rest of us are like okay because justified. That's show the actress. Yeah fuck you. I have empathy. Yeah see i don't. I don't buy that man either. They think that they have the least. I think that's the thing is like. I genuinely believe that they just believe like the ends justify the means with absolutely anything so just like we will destroy you because you're a tyrant or euro. Whatever we've labeled you something that's evil therefore we can do anything. We could cheat. We asked at the election because well he's a. He's a fascist dictator. That's what you would do in the face of a fascist dictator and they sell that up down the line and the like all those people that were in those counting rooms notice. Look i'll just slip an sean. I'll do one for my grandma doing for my uncle. Whatever read like it makes perfect sense because that was just the general disposition of the population as they sold it. That's what they wanted you to believe. So it's like someone in a mail truck is just like throw that in the trump. You know you can't quite quantify part. Yes they're contributing to saving america. We have to fortify fortified. That's the thing is like that those are all the things it's like you can't prove it in court that it really happened. That's the type of shit that i went down in the glove fit. I i had people telling me now. That fucking article that you just read. The article in time was time time magazine. Yeah or was a new york post. No time time. We talked about a couple of shows ago. So i had people literally arguing me and tell me that that was fucking part of a conspiracy theory a key brother fucker. What is it not everything. Disagree with is a fucking conspiracy theory. That's what they use tan horse. I already know that. And not every not every fucking view that goes along that goes against yours is cunanan like you mother fuckers. Don't get it like you're killing america. Dude you're killing it not to mention that we hold on liberty hill at. You're killing america. Which is your fucking boat that you fucking ride in cracks and you don't get it eventually. These people that you fucking champion are gonna turn on youtube motherfuckers. And then you're going to be like what the fuck is going on. And then i'm going to be like. I told you people are going to have to get to the fucking. They're going to have to get punched in a fucking dick to realize how serious it is and for those. Don't have dick's it. Yeah doesn't feel good. I'm just saying you're gonna have to fucking. They're going to have to feel themselves because right now. The problem is not enough. People fucking feel the pain. Yes you can believe in you. Believe in optimism and want to believe that the world can be a better place like we. We made it this far right. We've got we've come through all this adversity even get here so it's just like it's good is gonna win like gonna rise the surface. The question is is how many people are willing to not pay attention while they're taking shots in the back until they all star kind of like moving that direction on for unfortunately like we were saying before is it's like it's like unless it must have been on your back door. A lot of people just casually. Don't pay attention. Yeah it's interesting too because like you see some of the states now like i think it was. South dakota have been. North dakota passed a law that banned mandatory masking. And do that should be the fucking rule everywhere like this. This fucking shit of like you know fuck you. You're wearing a mask bro. ain't help. Nobody certainly not helping the pandemic most of the people who died in fucking pandemic of nineteen of spanish flu die from bacterial. Pneumonia from fucking mass. Okay you guys aren't reading the fucking science. I told you dude. I had so many people hit me up. Where's your proof motherfucker. I told you where to go. Get it you didn't go. 'cause you're too lazy to go. Look you go spend two hours in the cdc website. All the shit sir. Yeah it's all there that's the thing that's it's like. How obvious does the shit have to be. That's what's so obvious anymore bro. It's about what they've chosen to identify with. I'm on this side. You're on that side so now it's a battle of ego it's not a battle of fucking data or what's right this is this is people are doing this now because they've been indoctrinated and forced to do it and it's part of their identity and most people won't give up part of their identity very easily even when they know they're wrong and that's what we have going on right now. There's a lot of fucking people out there that know that this is bullshit and are continuing to comply with it and be quiet about it. And that's what's costing us fucking problem. The i don't. I honestly. I don't know what to do about it. I think slowly but surely were seeing turn right like so. So i know the harder they push. The more people are waking up like now. it's double mass mass and so juice doesn't do it. Actually keep you save and you gotta keep whatever is that. I don't know so i'm gonna go fuck it. Take a vaccine. it's not study. Not proven fucking rush to market already causing all kinds of side effects people dying. I'm gonna rush. Take the shit. So i continue to live the way that i had lived before the vaccine. Fuck you. I'm sorry right now in that. It doesn't protect anybody. It dude. this ain't about health. It's never been about right exactly but but they they don't want you to weigh in. Because will you're not a doctor so you your opinion can't be trusted therefore you have to be silenced. You can't talk about it. And we know the conversations are gonna help us. Evolve began have those those are not allowed. And it's only the doctors but these doctors say it but you can't listen to those doctors doc. That's right it's just like it's just one fucking dot or the same all the way across. It's about every single thing that they do is it's just like its narrative. Follow the line. That's what it is all the way through about everything no matter what it could be so blatantly obvious but it's like no this is what it is but it's again it's all of our responsibility for not being able to for not talking about it for not making it happen for not standing out front and being willing to take shots in the public square otherwise going to keep changing because they are slapping us in the face of the. It's more than obvious but people just they don't want they don't want to go against the tribe. Nobody wants to not be on the team through. That's the problem grow like people.

That's fucking sandy like. That's not enough reason to go. Stand your ground. We're spoiled in that rivera. What people have to understand that date they have a duty to fucking stop it and you have to stand up for yourself. We're gonna find out. How about america's spine. You know what. I'm saying like impressed right now while you know i think about talked about the t mobile store situated. We talked the whole lot about having those uncon- uncomfortable conversations and shit. I'm where you're at like four now like every single like situation i have. I m probably the biggest asshole you have ever met ever met so is similar situation right with the target this last sunday. Or whatever and i love target. But i have a love hate relationship going there for one thing next thing. You know. it's fucking four hundred dollars right there. Good at that very very good. Fuck they do that. I love magnolia in the fucking pleats like just like lose my shit right. So we're in there for three fucking hours is me alex and in the baby cry. I don't wear masks. I've stopped having those entrance conversation with people at the front door. I walked right past them. Moving we're there for three fucking hours. Okay we're literally in the fucking checkout lane. Were checking out. Ryan starts losing a little bit. I pick her up holder. he's a baby. No mask right. I fuck fuck this now starbucks down. I'm or something to drink. So i go to starbucks is inside the fucking target. Okay i've been here for three hours. The whole fucking window The whole counter shabat is nothing plex by two small holes. Then pick up drop off right so go up their order holding fucking five month. Old baby in the laid looks musar. You have to have a mask on the order. And i looked at her. I said listen. I've been in the store for three fucking hours. Have a four month old here. That doesn't have a fucking mask gone. You have this plexiglas as protecting you. Order my fucking drink. Let me pay for now. Leave the fuck along like made it so in the fucking do poke his head out the back. He's like what did you like. I said a large fucking mango from great. Thank you very much bro. You got to be away. No but it is and you know what you're going to have to get uncomfortable a little bit here. I mean dude. What about like the people who say dude. I like to hear you guys. Take this when i think dude. She's a fucking mask. Swear to fucking mask we you say to them I that's a good question. I think that it's like what evidence i mean. Again it comes back to the tribal thing whereas just like nobody wants to just be the person that steps out away from it. So i don't know what the i don't know what the right answer to. It is other than like. I've done a lot of research about this. I've spent a lot of time looking into whether or not this is actually a thing and all available evidence that i've seen suggests to me that this is not doing what they're saying that it's doing and that these are these precautions are not solving anything or not doing what. They suggest that they are so to me. It's just like all this research that i'm basing this on if that's what you wanna do. Okay but they're all just they're all just on that tribal nature. It's like no one wants to step out and take shots. No one wants to create an uncomfortable situation so they just comply and that compliance ripples through. It's like everyone sees everyone. And then we fall fall in line and then nothing happens. I do look at it like this. Well what's fucking necks thing like. This is just one. Hit of a crack pipe. Bobby what i'm saying like what what's next. Limit climate lockdowns one hundred percent. What's next you can travel hundred hours a week. I think i said that like a month or so ago. On a fucking podcast. You're one hundred percent right. That's what's gonna happen is exactly what's going to happen. Yup they're going to try to pivot this from kovin into fuck environment on reciting live the same way because it's less impactful on the environment. Yup and look how it wasn't that bad that we live like this year. We keep living like this because it helps the planet garment. You hate environment. Yes i do mother hydra so mess. I fucking do if it means. I have to live like that fucking hate it. I'm sorry i got diesel trucks. Just in case to take one. I'm just saying dude it's fucking it's already prepare for. You see what gm's doing electric vehicles by. What is the twenty thirty four. You know you know there's already technology that has fuel and combustion engines that burn as clean as fucking water. yeah tack. They don't want it to come out because they wanna push this other thing lines all their fucking pockets. It's real shit. Yes evidence motherfucker. Go look at you look it up. I'm tired doing all your mother fucking research. And i have an only works on when it's in your behalf that's right you know what i mean like whenever you want to and this is what this is what my argument i had entire career though is dedicated around arguing science like our company science who had been talking with career about that you correct but i mean like we will go. Nuno are on whose match was better and it was like my company. Science was better than your company science and really what the funny thing about that is. My company was more corrupt in lining the pockets of the surgeon. Your company or you're arguing against their company was better at it right so there's for every piece of pubmed that all you fucking rocket scientists can read. There's another piece of pubmed that would argue the fact which one is and this is. This is my personal struggle sex. When did we get away from just being adults like. Why can i not just make the best decision for me and my family and the best decision is for you and your family stay. Home will the new style. I don't want to stay home. We're being ruled right now. Correct and you don't. They don't want to critically think i want you to question. Anything was a fucking article that came out like no. Yeah you said though critically think we got to control the adult like fuck you how dare you say that headline literally said something to the effect of critical thinking as we know. It is actually going to hurt you now. Like what the fuck are you guys talking about. Yeah like this is ridiculous and if you're buying this shit and shoot it up dude. You're you're wrong yeah Your duty are like your dog. we're gonna. I'm sorry like you're going to have to fucking get less dom dude how do you how do you become less. Dumb is a great great lesson my hand conversations about and you got to go out and be willing to be wrong and having educate to educate yourself you gotta talk talk to people in a reasonable way that you don't necessarily agree with the find out. Why the fuck. They think the way they think and maybe go read a little bit right and likely what we've learned at this point is wherever you read. You're going to see some type of bias information. The one that you're probably lean closer to the one bills closer to your soul. Then you arm yourself with these things called facts and information and then we put them out in the battlefield of life we have conversations and guess what sometimes you lose as far as fucking deal or you gotta have the humility and when you lose this fucking take my ball and go home mentality on the fucking tan horse. These stupid motherfuckers ride on they scream and yell and kick and scream when they lose. It's like no no no. That's kind of part of this deal like when you compete life. We're going to go out here. And there is a winner and a loser. Not everybody wins. I can't bucknell that whole nother conversation. I can't wrap my brain around where this shit started bro. Start dude motherfucker. Podcast to rid when it was called the nfc. Oh project the reason it was called it. The project was because this fucking everybody wins. Mentality is ruining america. You go back and listen to my show. Two thousand fifteen sixteen is all fucking talk about. Now we're here now. We here now. We're here with the people who got trophies for seventeen fucking place and we're dealing with. What happens when they don't get what the fuck they want. That's it and and what happens win. Even get what they want. I think what's so amazing about what you do. And what you guys do. Bad cast does is that you talk a lot about mindset and how that that's kind of where all things really begin and originate and it's like if everybody was in control of their mindset in that way then all of these other things would be positively affected as a result of that. I think that's so important about this message. This thing that you guys are broadcasting out there this is like make sure that all this is right and then all of these things would seem would not be as hard to get your way through. You wouldn't be as afraid to go out and step out and take shots. You wouldn't be as a for because you know that you got it all in here. Yeah you know that. You're internally got your game right so that nothing can. Nothing can hurt you. And that's the thing that's so important about this. Cast what you guys push out is that like the mindset is the is the core of all these things and not enough people talk about how important that single thing is to all other things and all of this stuff that we're seeing represented externally is happening because people aren't taking care of what's inside they're doing it reverse exactly what they're looking for the external to take care of them so that they feel better when in reality you've got fix yourself and the external materializes yes do self-reliance yet it's like that's the thing that i feel like is so powerful about this about this like i've been listening to for for weeks. Just like absorbing information just for today. And i'm just like every single thing you're talking about is just like in your mind. I is where all things are controlled and then all of the rest of it. Like good ambani yaks good bad and you have to learning learning that process of self awareness is knowing when you're on knowing when you're off right knowing when to attack knowing when to sit like that's what you have to learn that about yourself and going through your self process. Yeah that's a huge thing about life. In general like man lies fucking hard. it aims thakin. Easy and ain't gonna fix your problems. You gotta finish your fucking problem right. And that's a hard conversation conversation. It's easier to buy the idea that someone else or some government or outside. External body of people can fix your shit other than you know twitter. I never thought about it like that bro at that sheet that perspective. Because i never really. I am not seeing that. Cause i'm in it all things. All things are co- come from that as the rue and it's like every other problem solves itself by simply focusing on the internal i and that's what's so important i think about this. That is the case. It's like if you look at all those things it's like. Self reliance is not promoted like would you talk about about like controlling the inner voice and battling with your self defeating that voice to do the thing that's right so that you can have aggress. That is so crucial. In explains all of the problems that we have is just like no one's fighting and winning that internal voice. There's like yup. it's wrong. I'm a victim. Okay who's gonna who's going to help me. We'll do what's going to satisfy this need. I'm gonna drink something. I'm gonna get something i need. Oh it's because of this is because of that. They're just not looking on the inside. I and that's why this is so important. Because it's like if everybody did that. And they thought about self reliance and self control on how all things go outward from you. It's like all of these problems would fix yourself by just that alone. Do in my opinion. What's crazy too is all the shit that the people you like. I love this. This is track. Ron was crazy. I when i took me a long time. Alertness myself dude. Because i used to drink four nights a week party all the time. You know when you're when you're when you're in that in that in that frame of living right first of all you can swish anytime you want. You've just got to become aware of it. But when you're in that frame of living you know and you're doing like the the alcohol or the fucking weed or the the whatever it. Is that the things that are trying. You're trying to like put this in me. Because like obviously they said. I've got a fucking problem. It's okay so i can now justify living below my own personal standard which i know is right in my heart. That's the cancer. That's eating this country. A hundred percent ro and you know. I never really thought about it. Like like how you just put it out there but man you're spot on dude you know it's nobody's gonna your life dude right. Nobody personal responsibility is like the most important phrase whatever ever. If you're still responsibility horton it is. It makes sense as to why they removed. I in the fucking 'cause due date this this get my tin foil hat but do this is a twenty five year play. Why do you think that they stopped giving out trophies for first second and third and start getting them for ten or twenty or everybody. Why do you think they did that. Why do you think they remove the pledge of allegiance out of the school. Do you think it was because they just didn't like the pledge of allegiance as offensive. Or do you think maybe they're trying to instill a lesser pride in country in an entire generation of people. Yes i mean guys and your family. Yes and yourself and personal liberty and personal responsibility. How do they destroy that. I they destroy i by by removing it from your vision. Removing it from your life you know under the guise of offensive fuck offensive. Some things are offensive. If you're offended move to another country for real like dude. This is america. We should be proud to be fucking americans. I don't give a fuck color. You are what race you are. Were fucking You know who you like that live with or sleep with or whatever as long as kids. You know what. I'm saying like bro. This shit is america. It's a place for all of us and now we have these these tech motherfuckers now who've decided that there's gonna go ahead and control everything that we fucking say and do bro. If that continues on we're we're in deep shit. Yeah we'll the the self reliance and the personal liberty is like the is the key component of why america's great in the first place is the is our liberties our freedoms. That's the thing so it's like how do you a it is like you demonize anything. That's outside of it. You do everything for the good of the group. It's always groupthink. A population is much easier to control. If they're not self reliant right and it was a group of people's easier control for not self reliance detroit's exactly so it's like you. You slowly just take away each thing that's is individuality personal responsibility and liberty. And if you just eroded each of those things before you know it you can control large slice of people and it's just like the people that are doing it at the very very top even the people that have a lot of power that are pulling those strings. They're just trying to fall in line so they can keep making money cheap rising up in their position like the social like i bet you. Those guys are not necessarily various. Maybe they are. Maybe they're not but they're just like this is what we gotta do to keep our business ally the sweater to be in the social square. Just fall mine. Meanwhile the whoever's really orchestrating it is just like personal liberty. That's no good. You can't have people blessing. Let's road that over your group. Think everybody for the good of everybody. Let's install for generation and now we have an entire generation of those people literally like. It's fucking scary dude. Yes like they don't believe in they don't believe in You know work hard. Get the reward up. They don't believe they. That's bad like dude. These billionaires are evil. It's like do you know how many people you had to help to make a billion dollars. Allie jobs how much positive products of services that people bought with their own. Free will that you had to produce in order to earn a billion dollars the whole fear the whole theory that like these people are evil because they have a billion dollars. it's just like being racist or gender. it's all the same. Problem is bro. They don't the villain is the billionaires villain is the people in the middle right the regular dude Like myself has literally started from fucking nothing. It and dedicate dude. I haven't done fucking anything for twenty three fucking years and motherfuckers come at me and talk at a guy yesterday yours. Some lau mouth fucking entrepreneur. Fucker i built this shit. This is not gifted us this we and the people in this building fucking built this shit Okay i that used to be what people in america be proud of. Because you could do it now. They've the narrative and the media has become villain is those people and it's weird because like the actual billionaires are not the ones that people fucking hate on. Yes it's the fucking people in the middle. That's the strength. that's right. Yeah that's the strength though. You know what i mean. That's the one that they have to dismantle in order to get where they want to go because through that there's a primal instinct in that winning middle you know what i mean a it goes back to like you talk about to the billionaire fucking in those. I mean there's a you know. Self reliance right. Will you go back like we're humans. This has been going on for years and years and years and thousands of years. I in order to be self reliant couple of hundred years ago and you had be fast you being good shape you had to fucking hunt you had you know what mean like there is an ability to that was dismantle. Have you seen the movie. Wally like i feel like what fuck yet we're moving. we're moving towards wally. That's what you started saying. And i'm like we're living a fucking on zeppelins floating around in the sky fucking hundred years you know like have you ever seen it. It's fucking good. It makes me think that we're gonna be fucking living on zampa symbol like guys like riding around on the cards. We don't talk to one another float around find one plant now. The whole mission of the robot can create sustainability again. Dude i saw something on one hub. Now prager you lose prager you. I got some good shit. Pray good and i feel like they're you know they get labeled as like a fucking far right. They're not far. I'm sorry moderate. They think they're very. I think they do a good job. At showing the truth and i was watching this thing about how most people who bought into the the racial narrative this past year in two thousand twenty with the george floyd thing on the police brutality of black people they were asked. How did you see that. we'll win it and it. It was a they were asked. How many people do you think were killed by the how many black people don't think were killed by the police in twenty twenty and mo and the average answer was over a thousand and the actual answer was like nine thousand nine hundred and it just shows you how much the media misinforms people because these people on this video believed it. They're like thousands thousands with mckay. Reassure yeah no. And he's like well. Did you actually know that more far. More white people are killed by police than than black people and they were. They were like no and he said. Do you know the actual number was only like whatever it was nineteen or eighteen or whatever. Fuck it wasn't And if i'm misquoting the number you can go video on prager you They were just like no. That can't be true well as just another another video to like about about money in in the wealthier right like well. What do you consider to be. Top one percent of income earners in the country. All i saw that billion dollar billionaire hundred thousand. What's ten percent. What do you think that is millions dollars. Millions one hundred thousand dollars. You make one hundred fifty thousand dollars you the top ten percent well. What about taxes. Who you think well. Did you know the top. Ten percent take care of over seventy five percent of the taxes for america. Oh wow then like they do it very very those are the question was is this because that was a great video. Great was again. I think it was the same guy will and and The question was he was he. He's he said Do you think the rich pay their share. The fresh air. Yeah and they were all everybody was like no no fucking weapon power and then he comes back and he's like well they actually pay seventy five percent of the tax in this country and most people were like afa holy. Shit dude. Problem isn't that people don't pay taxes. The problem is those mother fuckers that make a hundred billion dollars exhaust figure out ways not pay tax if everybody paid the same amount of tax. Let's just say we all pay the same. We pay less tax but not everybody pays and it's not the poor people that ain't paying. It's not the middle not paying and it's not the quote unquote wealthiest not paying. It's the ultra ultra ultra. Rich aren't paying. Yes and that's where the whole comes from an average human. Thanks that's bullshit. It's truth the other thing too is like i think that people underestimate the importance of an how and how pervasive the media is and how really everywhere it is and people think of the media they think of like the the ten channels on tv what they don't realize that the media is the newspapers the magazine's the publishing house that publishes the books and decides which books get published and they take those books and they put him on tv. They put him on. talk shows. Daytime nighttime these are all intertwined so then when you consider how much of human thought is controlled by all of these media. All these eighty six major company right. It's like that's that's every newspaper. That's every book that's every magazine. That's every movies. Then that's every single thing bought anything and it's like if you wanna get financing to fall in line so it's like when you think about how this thought then controls the conversations of the people that are watching. Tv or aren't reading. Those books are aren't reading those newspapers. Those are the conversations that are had in the town squares. You see that on the news. I read this in this book. So it's like they really have a stranglehold on the distribution of free thought which is why again it comes back to the personal to the mindset's like i need to be able to look at thought any thought and say well. Maybe this thought is a right. Just because it's in this book or because i saw it in this place it's like you need to be able to fight that battle and know that you can't take anything as one hundred percent back until you validate no matter where it comes from people books media whatever it is. It's like if you have this taken care of all the way through all the time. Then you can defend against those things but people forget that. It's like literally all media. It's all thought everything that's why the the very best conversations that happened in my life happened in a closed circuit of people close circuit of people who are educated who. I trust who. I actually liked the battle at time. I mean i had the best conversation fucking ever with with with Tyron woodley yesterday now. Tyrants good buddy mice from st louis different political lines and we know it because we kind of tiptoe around it right like like. He's believer in what he believes. And i'm believing when i fucking believe and do fucking awesome conversation yesterday. The do fucking league do we gave each other like five. Hogs like bro. You get closer to people by having those conversations not further away you know. It's just you're not depending on how you go about it right. Go about fucking normal human or exactly. That's my point. People go talk to you you know. And i don't know man like the media thing is very scary because these are. I almost feel empathy for people who who watch the media and believe it right because we should fuck and believe that we should be able to look at the tv and and here this person who's paid the tell us the what is the news. We should reasonably expect them to be telling us the facts. I personally think. That's a reasonable human expectation. And so you can't fault someone for believing the shit from someone they're supposed to believe and so it's hard conversation. It's almost like you wanna put your arm around and be like bro. You know this folks will share right but like how do you do that in a way without being right there to like showing him. You know what i mean. And that's we've we've this is due. Both sides of the aisle are really guilty of this. Because i see this shift from the left and the right where you know go immediately to insults right insulting someone. Sokol him fucking asshole or fucking this or that or this and dude. I'm guilty of it too right on the show. Say you're dumb. Well that's because. I literally mean it like if you i i'm being literal. I'm not trying to insult someone you care of low intelligence. it's also affect. Yeah yeah. But i mean we have to get away from this this fucking. You're my fucking enemy. Fuck you you fucking. If it's liberals you know you fuck in karen actually. It's weird because now they're calling the fucking conservative snowflakes. Yeah they were. I think has a good flip. I an appeal. But they're also calling themselves patriots and the conservatives like erist the fuck is going on mine. It's mine games. I mean the thing that i think the thing that's important to remember. Is that if you wanted to. Let's say that let's say that the world is a battlefield which in a lotta ways it is. You saw people just going through the front door and it's like they know they trust. They rely that whatever comes through. The front door is good. It's like you're just gonna slide something through the front door if you build a reliance on the media. Well that's how that's going to be the easiest way for us to slip you the poisonous through this thing that you rely and you trust so people need to realize what is what i think is really important going forward. Is that every piece of information. Every fact every word that comes across your mind now you have to battle as to whether or not. That's true or false. There is no trusted source. There's nothing you have to be able to independently validate every piece of information. That comes into your life no matter where it comes from otherwise you're gonna lose the battle because they know what you're going to trust and that's where they're going to infiltrate because they know that you have that reliance on it being true so it's like you have to every single thing no matter what there is no trusted source. You're always just taking a tidbit independently. Validating take a tidbit independently vowed. That's why like research is so important. And yes it's a frustrating and yet it's a pain in the ass but it's like you lose if you don't do that if you don't protect the back door just as much as you protect the front door and the side door like someone's gonna find your vulnerability income in the only way to defend against. It is like a perfect dome around yourself which is self reliance self awareness complete and total control of your mind set all the time not not taking any piece of information as pure fact independently validating and researching it and it's a pain in the ass but it is a necessary prerequisite for us to all move ahead. It's like you have to just trust nothing like literally question everything and all things. Otherwise we're gonna get clapped. Yes it's just like there is no choice. I wish it wasn't that way. But that's the way. Yeah as far as i see your no dude. You're spot ombo. I mean that's it like every fucking thing and dude. I've even had to find myself. Doing that was shit. That like. I wouldn't like i've started to realize over the course of the year like nobody's telling the truth. Yes well nobody really. And and yeah. That's what they want. they want confusion. They want cloud so that you could fucking not figure out fucks going on so the that's been a realization. I think for for a lotta people. And i think that's also why it's taking so many people to realize how fucked up this really is. Because they they know like like dude. It's wrong it's wrong like it's wrong to watch the news and and and you lied to fucking wrong but they do it every day a lot and it's not just a little light. It's not a stretch to the truth. It's like no seriously the evidence of it that it's not like you know i. It's not a fish story. You know i was here but insist. They're they're fucking not nineteen people and the most people think it's thousand right. That's easy manipulation. That's that is. That's a different thing. That's different thing like if the stats were literally thousand. I think everybody would say hey. Fuck these cops dude. Let's get some new cops. Let's start this whole fucking thing over. But ain't it's fucking this you know and that's not being addressed fact other the other thing too is like once you realize ok. Well why would they lie. 'cause that's why that's the next question. Why why would the news item you right but once you realize that your eyeballs and that tv being on his dollar signs. Orion all things are that they're making money not on you necessarily believing it but just simply watching it. Just you simply watching a u downloading that app for that new shit like that's money for them. You know what i'm saying. So why wouldn't they lie. Well i think bobby made it. He made a good statement earlier about you know we are in the state of an information war though and you look at the prime the old primal instinct of superiority ripe mental physical. You know these. The skill set to hunt feed your family. Maybe the new prime lasette is education. Like you have to be willing to put the work in for your family so that you can survive so that your family can be better off so that you can be better armed to go. Fight that battle. I mean literally. I'll just jot down. You're saying i'm like how my brain works not very efficient at times the size a free good. But i'm sitting here thinking like it's it. Is you know you start talking about primal instincts and you know. We're in a technology era will. This is our opportunity. Then you need to go. Educate yourself much less like a physical attribute from two hundred years ago. Better not be throwing a spear using a bow and arrow mega use your brain. Yeah and and maybe both have points on. But you're i think the problem with that is the laziness that's inherent insider society right now. We want to be told what to do. Easy fix and unfortunately there is like you said that research is kind of a pain in the ass. Because it's not the first click on google. You gotta go digging a little bit right gotta read you gotta read. Then you gotta do this thing called converse you gotta go out and be like all right to use my weapon against their weapon and see who's weapons stronger. Maybe he's got good points. I can learn from it right. And that's humility humility motherfucker right now. We're seeing it. This is why all these people on tan horses run around screaming and fucking. We'll take an ball and run home. They can't express humility through a loss. It don't understand that so because they think their education is cracked because they they read one pa beds right now. They're the fucking day or the thought leader in the industry and they're gonna kick and scream their way fucking home. It's like wait a minute. You're fucked up here. We are fucked up and we can only fixed that through learning rx education on how to arm ourselves to go have better conversations of facts you willing to accept. I think one of the best things that my parents instilled to me is like. They didn't tell me what to think. They taught me how to think. And that's again to keep like keep coming back as it's like the mindset's like if instead of telling people what to think we teach them how to think and we say hey. You should go and research this yes. It's a pain in the ass just kind of like going to the gym pain in the ass. It's like if you think you can just liposuction your way to not being overweight. It's like all right. That's not that's actually not the right way to do it. So how to think is the most important thing in everyone on tv and everyone in school and all these indoctrination zones. It's like this is what to think. This is what you have to think in one member dates numbers and all these things that are going to be inconsequential to your life. Instead of how to think. Hey maybe i'm not rife. Hey history is written by people that want it. Do you know what actually happened. That's just what this book says. Who wrote this book. Who published this book. So it's just like when you when you had that realization life when you're like wait maybe this wasn't the truth you like it's like you level up in the video game it's like you reach the next level and you unlock and you're like wait a second question everything this superpower because now all the sudden not only does the world exponentially bigger but sorta the opportunities because now you're seeing the real shit. You're not watching the matrix anymore on your see numbers you see in the fucking green ones and zeros going and you're like oh fuck yeah. Hey hold on wait. What and now all of a sudden you now it's different game and you start to realize will fuck. That's why i was struggling. Or that's why. I wasn't winning. That's why this always happens and dude. It's this is such a bizarre it is. it's just like maybe that's a blessing. But that's the thing is that's exactly what it is and like we were talking off line about like i said we were talking about. How like a single thought can change your life. And i remember when i first heard tony. Robbins say it's that life happens for us not to us. I was just like oh like my head exploded. I was like wait a second. You mean this is all for me. You mean this is all what has to happen. This is how it's supposed to be. This is a prerequisite to learning how to get through the next step. This is the back up against the wall in the moment of pressure. The things that you do an all the all the bullshit is out of the way and you just focus on the thing that really matters. That's what's happening and it's happening at a macro scale and as long as people like us continue to tell about that and speak about that and then we keep having these conversations. It's like that is. That's how we saved the world's like you want to save the world that's how you save the world conversations. I don't mind this moment. You're talking about it. You know happening for you and send it to you. I was mowing my grass. And i've we've struggle the waiter whole lot. It's kind of interesting. We're in the weight loss business fitness business. But it's because we understand struggle. You know four and remember mow my grass mac and tell you vividly and i share this on our inside app on. I forms that we talk about stories because there's a and purpose and i when i die. The first question mascots do. Why did i get the fat gene. You know what. I mean like i want to be on. The fox can eat mcdonald's ten times a week and be shredded with fucking apps they look like and it. That moment clicked math. Thought i wouldn't be able to share my struggle my struggles my strength and so now i've been able to build an entire opportunity for my life and career for my family over being able to share my struggle which is also my strength tapping for me but i was too close minded to see it that way and then literally at that moment it clicked in my head. Fuck i've been thinking about this whole thing wrong right head. Above the clouds level up whole thing changed at that point for me and you know i think we all have those opportunities whether we choose to see them or not right get outside our own little bubble. Fuck look around like oh fuck. Maybe it's not happening to me. Maybe i'm not the victim. Maybe this is my opportunity. Yes it has to be that way. It's it's needs to be that way in order for you to learn. Do that's how i see what's going on in the country man. I see it as an opportunity for all of us to get our heads fucking asses and create. what. America really should be together. That's how i see it. You know and i think if we go on the street level and we asked hundred million americans. I think most people are fucking see it that way. The problem is we've got six five hundred eighty-five motherfuckers in washington dc. Don't and until we figure out how it's going to correct on fox dude you know. It's it's because it's because there it's because the topic in and of itself is just like the resources like we don't want to do the research. Just turn on the news and tell me what happened and then tell me how. I'm gonna hire a trainer. Tell me how to get in shape. I don't wanna have to figure it out myself. I need to hire a business coach. Tell me how to run this business. Which is the whole. That's the whole problem. It's like dismissing it to some external think that needs to solve the problem for us and it's just like we have to solve the problem. Ourself all the way through dude. I think that's a. I think that's a good thing for the show man You know we'll be going almost two hours some wrap it up. I dude first of all awesome to have you on the show my ear. Where can people find you at.

We want to hear what you guys have to say. You can also help us. Bill community by becoming a patron on a patriot dot com slash. Mars played by contributing to this podcast. You help us continue our power for work to culture one episode at a time. So let's get started. I saw ninety canyons by wherein new can bela brand new day. Trump is out the motherfucking news out. The motherfucker is in years so excited about this She twelve down to stay again. She told her she got look for all. That means where it was trauma. Like in photoshop in a picture like marge simpson. We're a hand over his shoulder and capsule was. I'm need you to clock out right. Oh they tried fide world. Who got shot was the cop the got you and people that got killed. Anybody people do well. You know the girl that got shot. That was trying to jump through the window to get to the congress. What that you say minutes you know. Place to begin winds supervisors along. What i said we. Can you know if you just listed. Sick complied tiny comply. You wouldn't have been so they're trying to give love. I i i was this whole day. I got a real early not intentionally. But when i woke up they were recording him. Leaving the white house getting into the helicopter go and walker lead to To the helicopter gal and They had on black funeral malania. Yes the death of your presidency earlier but The negative is that now our tax dollars of gonna have to go to protect Down food because he's a he's a former president and there's a certain amount of money that goes to the detail of him having secret services around here just because he the president and so now our checks dollars is going to deal with their unless this impeachment goes through the. Maybe i don't know how that's working now. But he's not the president. But i don't know how that's gonna work. But we albright if they eat it with the head that will be huge for them out. Do get impeach. we don't have to take care of. That'd be so nice parting gift for fighting kicking type. Baby come on new things. We've seen him to watch the health for years. We deserve i give enough especially the way he would either trace community the fucking bag you when you got us. Give the first league. You sex workers got rid the baggage and win. The super bowl was here in houston. Mahar had way talented. Well no there was people who started that shit before him but the fight in the set sets the staff there was other people that was involved in that but it also built the trans band in the military. I than the health stuff was really trying to get us together and he did. But that's why you that's my because you got controls up. We advocate you. Now we got allies advocating for us and you just mean whack so now you get the he complaining about how you complain about it. But you create the gaps in the hor- in vegas play with us in our face saying he for the people you actually create policies undefined. Thanks for us out in. We've never remember early in his campaign when they asked them questions about the back on wheel we was like he was on our side on that on that shit but over time you know how he got a ride with republicans because other those the folks who got him in office so you know not to give him any kind of leeway. I think that you know he he just a narcissism was just trying to ride. Wherever you're ri- he douses base eleni do what they want me to our new to game. Because that's one of the really. Wanna do i wanna be made mcafee man now. I find it interesting. His spiracy thieves sale his home. They a complaint pile liberals investors and stuff and they talk about the. The media has the media has created out his division to say Even further apart from everybody to basically crucify him quote unquote and then turn around and don't believe that many people will vote for him. I actually vote for by late you. I don't give yesterday what i'm trying to say like. Basically basically they're saying the media has allowed power to manipulate people in then turn around and say the results were faked election was also faked that that many people didn't actually vote for him with the media is such a big propaganda machine which they can't be then. Would you not believe that people were manipulated so voted for buying that much on that grand skill. Does that make sense. It makes sense but the thing about it is there they did what we d around hillary time we under estimated the power of the racism in this country underestimated. We thought oh of course. Donald trump can't be cannot work impossible and we got gary pain. We dads and now this time around. They got gag. They thought they underestimated our side. Both times we won the popular vote. So let's let's make decker but now during the in the swing states they got gang. They definitely got gag about fucking georgia because georgia you know has been really since was a. I don't know when it was. It wasn't super super long ago but it has been rare for a while and so has no. It's been blue. I can't remember rix. I think it was clinton or gore. I can't remember. i can't remember when it was. It wasn't long long ago. It wasn't like texas been blues a reagan in eighty but But yeah it. They really got gagged. So we gotta make sure this time around this time around when we come in on the next four years to win twenty twenty four communist time for to raise would. We can't be thinking that these rednecks came win. He's still got it. it'd be just having. It's not even rednecks. His it's like people now is black because their home their people are starting at fuck were democrats and performance. They performative and they year performance. Sunday like okay. Will trump came out with the he can't eat. The president actually came out with a black plan and blah blah is on the actually came out with eating low run. He parted kodak. lay low. Wayne you see it's like the same performances to me is like the same performed. Donald trump does is the same as joe biden. Does to me for me. Is that deep. But i do think that these four years now is gonna be the saving grace which are gonna do. They can't got the house in our favor. The presidency favor and the senate in favor. Y'all like y'all got to do some stuff for the people that got shot in office. Y'all got to really step up and show us that because they're not in the same. Well yes they. They're in the same situation that Obama was in the beginning of his of his elect of his first time right so now the job got the power. Y'all gotta be more aggressive than obama was beginning now. I gotta be more aggressive. Y'all gotta be you know for the people at the see them if equal voting for ya i mean this is what it is like i gotta i gotta do what you gotta do but then we in which i which i going to do Vote for republican. That's what i'm saying. Is that we also in a situation is if they don't do it they're gonna which are going to vote for republicans right voted off or usually what it means that we don't vote at all and that that on the harms every night especially all this work that we've done to boost up people voting anyway so many years with by where people were so uncertain up have their vote counted. Thank president obama was like a good a good way of seeing that nar voest With finding being definitely elected that showed a lot of people that we could come together because there was a lot of history that was made as as far as like red blue yellow mustard. Remember not just on our side either. There was a there was a record number of votes for their side to. We just came out on tops but that usually works in our favor. We'll the more people to come out and vote is usually vote in towards democrat this year less that means only the older people who are guaranteed the vote who are invested in voting. And you the older you get. The more republican linens were. Everybody was more ambitious than more paying attention. Because we're in a pandemic so they're going to focus on it more and also like all slogan everywhere like everybody like big companies like it was everywhere. I've never seen it like that awfully. They they step up and do what they need to do. To keep us excited about this administration and i said this on twitter earlier that honey. I'm gonna be i'm ready critique them just like i was critiquing trump. I'm ready to call them out when they doing wax. Shit i do love You know that they are starting with the sheets. So let's talk about that. Uh oh my god. I want to thank all of our new patrons this week. Thank you thank you. Yes so not only. Are you helping to sustain this particular. Podcast you know.

You know that's just the kind of amp community is so thank you. I really really appreciate you. And if you have not become a patriot. Why have you not you can donate as low as a dollar a month. It doesn't matter anything helps please do. Have to play sir mclaughlin and show you puppies. Like what have to resort to what people do get you all righty anyway. Thank you and the patriots and pay. Lincoln said about back to show so. I just want to talk about the things up by supposed to be doing. He's elected or as many thinks he's trying to do so what he wanted to similar things trying to do for the community specifically is under the policy which is the ban for trans of the military than he has also elected. Rachel levine. which is Assistant health secretary of state she is. That's a rachel levine. She is to serve as assistant. Health secretary issue will make history as the first out. Transgender federal official to be confirmed by the united states. Senate what would you think. Nameless is a transplant. Think that's that's very progressive. And then she just to give you a little history of higher. She comes from pennsylvania. She was one of their one of their top officials in pennsylvania to she has been doing the work even responds i. I learned about her because during covy because she was setting these rules about. Wear your masks and staying in place. Because she was one of the people who was a part of that regime to handle covered in there were there. Was this article that was out about people would be under her comments under the officials pages white her men and being transphobic in being shady and the her boss the either the governor or whoever our boss was would be the same one defending her. Like you just really have her back so for me. That's how i learned about her. She already been doing big things in the state of pennsylvania so for him to see the the work of her through colder and then promote her to this position in his administration. I really think is is just a great thing you know is it performance. I just i think she deserves a lot of things i think. She deserves based on her work ethic in what she's been going through You know so. I mean i just performative for not doing it. I don't care great. Thanks i appreciate it now. I do just the fact that we eat wine Bike us whether they be our skin color not in office in both positions we know that he still opens the door for a person of color That trains of trans experience if there including They're supposed to make it easier to get your ibm changed In one of the ways they're trying to do that. It's like illuminate the process. Where you have to go through your your doctor in order to get the change. I kinda i i like that but then i also i'm kinda like weary about the reason why is because of my with that eliminate the process of ub determined trends a order to change documents because it does eliminate it than anybody can get. It changed not necessarily. Because if you think about i'm pretty sure depends on the state and also when we did the process we still have certain requirements. We had. We had to go to the doctor go to it. They're they don't have to. They could see gender marker in texas we get our gender marker or name change on our actual birth certificate because we have a had any Sterilizing procedures so either way. I can track. The mouth makes sense to those intricate part of like pay. You can get your your your change on your Birthday typically unless you get like surgical things now remember. That was just how you couldn't even get the effort the emory idea to have sex chains. And they were doing that in texas though. I'm pretty sure that that worley. Being very good as a trans person like does it matter. What matter does it matter that they eliminated that like you just asked. Does that mean anybody. Can this changing. So where are what so well. Oh well why would then happening. Would there be people like her net. That's what i mean. We'll cares longest. Whoever long as us the people who need much rather it be easier accessible than ardor. What i'm saying. I'd rather be on this side of easy. You're a if you're gonna make it harder like oh you make people have to have sex. Changes have to have this and actor have that. that's when it gets inaccessible. I much rather be on this side of easy where we'll may have somebody. I don't know what you think they would do. But i i. I rather have it easier for us to do it. Then it'll be harder. I just wanted to be more accessible to people. Some people donald because they're keeping my. There's some people don't actually want to medically transition even more nowadays. I've seen more people have to lesson interested. Even you haven't been on hormones for some people just are like you know what i'm saying so i could see you on the medical side while it will be like. It's not necessary that dagan state necessarily psychiatric dominated being from a different but book. Diamond has like different surgeries like. She's she's more further her transition to wear like her. Not being one dollars is not going to make her the car. That's not the point. The point is would have qualified for the qualifies. Trans women wish that something. They normally goats got this initially for delays to get on hormones. I'll go our merely. Let me give let me give you a. Maybe they dislike this. This is really not necessarily. Because some people on a medically james bodies any and that will be good for people who are just transitioning like when you were you first transition in you probably that how your parents and you do not answer honestly state like get out on your own still wanna like save up for surgeries and things or not even just surgeries. Stay up for things before you go out there to live with conservatives of family members mike you once you say you're trains and you kinda wanna druid underneath the table that it would be easier to like. Get your name changes legally before you sal had been boo. I'm good and i'm hitting on my outside. I do that eliminated those arbitrary reasons like like our just talking about. Just if i haven't been on hormones for this amount of time i can't get my fucking My name or whatever. If i haven't been on. I gotta be on home for more than six months. All these arbitrary silliness reasons. I i just want folks who are of trans experience to get these things done in a more accessible as lou it anyway. You might have liberty. What i want have a i'ma do have f. Oh my id. I don't think that's happening. No currency birds frames going. Be just like the man on whether you now go give. I put the. I thought that. I really like the republicans do not way. I must say that we need to stop the excess. No i'm not saying that. I'm just i'm just saying there could be some county butch That the like they won't pull. And you know then. I grant you anyway. Softballs will get snatch so like non binary people so been. They gotta do what i wanna do. That'll be interesting. That generations of people could be really interesting to of that. Amanda if he gives me body b. in a way that's under the transplant relatives. He's transitioning that's excel to a different size. How are you going to accept that. And you're trying to tell people they randomly game you want to be got one of those okay so you re a county which when you get up either you want to have a little one two three. But i'm seeing ed. How does that put you on. Meet the trans umbrella. Identify as the mayor. Just because you guide via. I'm not saying no i don't believe that now. It put you on the to burrow outlives if he could identify ways he he wants i. Did you say about that saying in a way. 'cause i it's the same way i felt about like a word to her. Breasts often awareness transitioning to the issue. No but she she believes in being a woman in let me so how would just because that is a gender affirming surgery for trans person this the automatically put them underneath the trans umbrella because they don't even if they don't affirm themselves things that being affirmed that as being a transitioning type of stategist alexander traffic. I'm alex how. How does it because if you are. That's a good question. So water asking is if say i must in i get the surgery that transmit get because i don't want my teams to be b but but does that because they don't want them to be they wanna be flat chested does that make gender affirming. Think so if i'm not doing it to be a transition and i'm just doing it for just smaller breasts still want identify as a woman. I don't think that that's gender. Affirming i don't think judah farming for a chance of umbro to me i wouldn't but i get how the i get how. I don't think i think it's based on what they're they're What their identity is. But i get how it could be like. Oh what if you just did everything that that that makes sharply ambiguous but she identifies as trance. That's again the flame identifies as trans. I'm talking about somebody is describing the two dozen identify so when you don't identify me. No that's not go. i'll what are you get like. There's this women who have breast cancer and they have to get the but they don't have to well. No some baked used to get their homes. Some of them have to they. Don't want to. It would be the best choice to get the removed. You've got earth survey. I'm not to. I'm not saying mccarthy's chance and almaz alabama be like. Oh yeah you're trans which we wouldn't be trained does but i in my mind. I'm still going to take. This is under the umbrella. Because you're listening your body to the opposite gender or a defender are more feminine the opposite of what you would you reward. Opposite of where your najafabad he will go into the different two different. Think like is s up to interpretation too. Because what if. I think that you'll be beyond doesn't give make you look like the it just make you look like a dick boy. I'll know thinking about these. I've of you guy did breast implants because you wanna make more money. Avid drag queen. And he's had taken off the plate in high. Were dead hottest nicholas song. You decide he wanna get breast implants so he can just be like jami accuser. Roy as a. Because i'll be able to do more tricks in my allusion being more sick in my mind. I'm a thing this is. He's his body. So that's under transplant bra. Even though i might added advise the gameboy boy. That's the gay man as a gay man with tv. That's why picking my head you know about. Also things it's is under. This is me. Maybe that's by. He does what if he doesn't see if you know if he doesn't identify with transit on. I just continue. This is so random and so small gonna be no gay me out here. But i'm no. I i do believe the i have seen one unique person. I'm trying to think they are Only pricing come closes slammed but we can't counseling. We us up to be trained. Now we're in would like silicone in the hips in a break in and they face. Yeah i'm seeing boys do that but they still not trying to be. They're not identified as women. They're not wrong. They're not living full time as women they there. They transitioned a look. How more body but but does that matter. That's the problem with labels. That's the word they don't wire because this is. Why do we print you video here. Now for the over the air is so you can really just i in a and this is a perfect example because don is back to where we always say. This is the work of what nonbinary people are doing they are. They want people to be able to be wherever they want whenever they are physically on the spectrum an identifying how they want to identify so you know what else what else is on your loan okay style. I was not bring up jason them but then like i. I don't want to bring tie tired. Because he did like a little one. Two three thousand nine. I don't think that's really not. I think as if a i just a little. One tuesday adored They're trying to do too Athletic community in those above the poverty and purchasers more but those are some of them while just to let you know from the this day one. This is the inauguration. This is day one already the first day undead son. Some of trump undid some trump orders already in regards to call a in regards to financially for american.

But he's the he's the he's the commander edge and immediately. No right no bans on smoking. That's what i that should be emailed new. I'm not rushing now within a month. Funny tomorrow you need do it today tomorrow was saying how are you know. Let let me be. John joined the navy navy yet at thirty. Plus last thing. I need to live. Military will not meet. You only need to be audited worried about me. Mcvay cloaks i remember. I had duck walk making without room. Fuller girls duck wild naked duck without a on. But the doctor had to look under our gallant at our. Why did you read the story. I forgot the army know when you said walk outside and thinking about below night down no way owner maybe dull by what we in the military i i. I don't like authority led by yellow dubai. I don't want to tell me what i do for demand. I want a little bit more freedom. I appreciate Our military men and women in everybody. In between. But i cannot be that. That's not that is not my ministry. I will not be anywhere. That's why it was funny. It was asking me as the firstborn child to sign up when you know you get drafted when you gotta sign up for the draft and eighteen. Oh i come in their vulgar honey duck doubt that but came up at a time. When you know you don't ask don't tell you tell everybody gay. I don't want me here. I'll go in there and speaking Either on them hoes real gay and flamboyant what see where the negative Looking for a military husband up here. I'll be so gained. Him just will not draft me non just sound friends. Maybe have media ban back there again. It's a level that i no where to put you do. The women were rounded honey. I worked for for a little bit. Just a lock in for my implant. Now now you can't call me. Land which bans and she Let's talk about. Mississippi yano went to college. Mississippi lived there for a couple of years. Not a couple of about five years. Total more than that So this uprising. In conservativism has called has inspired a lot of people to do dumb shit. So let's talk about senator state senator. Angela burke. he'll a. Republican has proposed what is called the transgender twenty one at which would prohibit certain medical procedures from being performed on a minor and it will penalize anyone that tries to advocate for trains you to seek health. Ric healthcare related any service regarding their identity even if his non-surgical or harm mmono under this. Act it it is not a you are not able to actually seek gender affirming care. Medical professionals could be punished for even bringing up their gender identity without the console or express permission from the trans youth arens. They actually are legally required to out trans you if they are trying to receive gender identity care about this they also will face civil punishment. Even if you are a employee of the state you are barred from trying to protect transgender youth. And trying to protect their identity by not telling parents and their gardy. It is to prevent anything. Medical that would address discord in individuals sex or since identity even if you are born with a genetic order or development order you have to go through specific tests to brew that you are medically verified to have abnormal chromosome structure. This would allow people to still get breast enhancement and reductions as minor teenagers which but restrict other things for gender specific so wind. If longer don't have nothing to do with your gender identity you can your to these dive under the age minor as if you wanna get some big all boobs at fourteen fifteen sixteen seventeen. You can get some big belongs. Don't have nothing to do with your gender identity then has something to do genetic you can't get it so this is being proposed in mississippi. But what's advance. What's crazy is this. is someone you. This band will be geared towards anybody twenty one and under but the crazy thing in mississippi you can enlist for the military eighteen. Because they're saying that let me read what they're saying one second they're saying that at twenty one you are not able to understand or comprehend anything under twenty one. You are incapable of comprehending the negative implication in life altering difficulties of these decisions. That's why they saying in twenty one. That's when you're able to do anything under that you're not able to do it. But the crazy part in mississippi you are able to enlist in the military seventeen. You can get cosmetic surgery and on a gun at eighteen. You can vote at eighteen teens. As young as fifteen can get married with parental consent and at eighteen you can consume alcohol with parental consent. Well so all of these things they are saying that person between fifteen and eighteen can comprehend all these things that could be detrimental to your life and like life altering difficulties. They can bring all of that when we talk about alcoholism when we talk about risking your life in the military getting married to some dude at fifteen not even love at eighteen so all of these life the things you can do between fifteen and eighteen years old but when it comes to train stuff you can't comprehend until you're twenty one isn't that crazy turned up the heat they was like oh the kids can be now can you they. Allies cain advocate work. Here you bar from here. You can advocate for them. No nothing you can't. You're gonna be paying allies in trying to talk to us in wife's than texas intern toe sea time he but do you think is okay so did this has or something. Gay presented in on january eighth But this is the thing about it. The mississippi senate currently has a republican majority thirty six to sixteen so if it passes it will be effect july. The first of twenty twenty one. So i'm kind of pushed pushed them away pushed out but stuff like that. Even okay saint frances. You know we always make it work so you can to We was making a while before we had some both got away but the thing is when those things. Those bills are stopped by past even with people reading shit like that especially on the other like fuel. My thank yous there but that makes them gives them inspiration. It'd be like okay. I'm already eight. So the government is even on my side. I'm really gonna make out. I feel like when gets actually example of when the conservative people are ten people when they start to gain information on us and we do destined outside of educating he gives you so they'll try to cover all the grey areas. That could be possible. Look they won't be allowed. You travel do your doctor and you try to make this happen outta here. You ally out of here you. The child at he wanted that are you. You sound like this is the cost of visibility and be in more exposure because they know yeah the more they know the more they'll used against you. Say i mean without people who stream like that they feel very much social security. How they built their people just culturally like that. They they lebron people they want people who think the same way they do and uplift. This ain't values and guy on Online the other day on biko just doing my my my daily hours saying how he was trying to get back to the community. He lived in brooklyn so he's talking about Gentrification and what they're doing about it and then also about the use case so you're working with the youth see while working with the seventy percent or more of gay you two are becoming homeless and he was like gay. You know just folks on the stray. They can't comprehend They can't they can't hop their comprehension level in is is very long so we don't work with them and i thought he was junking busy. Nobody's ignorant that fucking instagram. But he was actually serious. I'm he was like a way. You're talking about this trend of stuff. Are you grants. And i was like. Yeah he was like you lying. I can't see no adams. Or and i was i i was like. I'm not lying lies about that. He was like. Did you see this flag. The at like a jamaican flag in his username using the flag. I will. I'm about their life about this call. Will i will blow your fucking head on. And this is supposed to be somebody who's a legal aid so indifferent organization but that goes to show you that there are so many people who were that far last that are needed that have access in that have leadership roles in these communities in a Impact and affected community in horrible ways of worse. This is another big example of that. Definitely i i but that i don't i think the example. You just lose more This she's a republican. She's way over on the right keys. Far-right the example. You just gave us also just an example of how somebody who made on the left in regards to their politics around race could easily on the right far right when it comes politics around gender identity in such lousy. You know email particularly you know black man. I'm not always but it's black. Women that are like that to where they they are progressive. Only when he comes to race they're not progressive. When it comes to any kind of social issues they bay light patriarchy when it comes to you know how the family structure is supposed to be how you're not supposed to act how women are supposed to act they just don't like white supremacy they are okay. We you know the rest of the oppressions. They just don't like the rates or perchance they want they want white supremacy in black face. They want that they wanted in that kind of way. So i don't know i just was gonna end up happening is when these conservative states. Start doing stuff like this adding things in their specific state. Vn what's gonna happen. Is the same thing to happen with. The workforce discrimination saying in june. We're going to end up. Having a case that goes all the way to the supreme court that protects trans kids and if we have the supreme court on our side doing they're gonna they're gonna pass it in protect trans folks but they just made girl. I mean before he left he put somebody in a Yeah emmy emmy comedy. That's amy comic comic breyer barrett. But it doesn't matter because sometimes we they could aband- us just in in that court case. That was the happening june. They had the majority in that time. They could have got us together but they didn't they ruled in our favor. So is still going to be possible. And then we don't know who's going to die within this for years who's gonna retire. What's going to happen In regards if they could they could go to court could get some more judges on on the on some more on supreme court appointees instead of it being the amount that it is now they make more and so in my mind i feel like i feel like it's just it's going to have to be another case that comes out of that comes out of one of the more progressive states that goes to the federal level to make a whole federal rule because once it's a federal rule those low level state court rules don't mat so that's probably what's going to happen. It's just kinda like gay marriage. Once it was once it was federalized. All those rules texas had all those rules. Mississippi had those rules alabama. Add about same sex marriage. Just get thrown out the window because now it's federally legal. So blue like tennessee. Now that of stuff probably have to be something as bad as much recent where. She was fired this she passed away. Yeah you never know awfully but this is. This is an ongoing fight. This is this is. This is just like the o'hare to was fighting for protective back in the day. And now we're on a new level of fighting for protections. This is off future. Children are for future community. Future people going to be coming through coming along doing deal with some of the same things that we are doing. We gotta keep fighting. That's just what it's about. That's that's just the nature of politics here in america. We just gotta keep fighting. We keep going. It's just like this inauguration just like this this year the trump set us back sure absolutely on a social level on a moral level on all levels when it comes to politics and what's going on in our country but but we step back now now we got a little bit more power political power. Now we gotta step even further just so the next month we're gonna come along doesn't push us that even further we just two steps forward one step back to step forward once. They're back tuesday for once. I just that's what i. That's how i visualize it. I just hope that We just keep getting harmony. Parmanent strongholds on political power. And i think is going to happen because the younger we get the younger generations. A younger generation the more progressive. We are so it's it's inevitable once the heads gets dying we. We're going to have the power. I miss a lot of prevention. Like as far as where people are are asking for. Because now i'm starting to sneak marches for reparations. Now like though that is starting to give series more series. So i could see what you're saying bhagwan own. I wanna job advice for my topic so since you asked home but Basically when we had episode if you know if you listen to it the first hey auntie episode on the podcast. The i i was talking about mayor has the way he like last week. In basically i don't know how to go about it like the terresa. My family light how to approach situation in it. I don't know in people always ask me. Ask us why. How could talk about personal stuff like talk about family situations like that but as the transportation the things you go to a family are unique is not like ordinary like give sofala out with my grandma not say like systems don't have very complicated situations family members but as transportation in a way it makes me talking amongst other people other transport wild wild makes me a intake on entrepreneur. Any right to so basically Asset my grandmother flowers because her first bore pass away in super say and You know think about it from a parent's standpoint which houston just thumbs for remember. Remember but i said i'm flowers. She enjoyed her shoes. Happy about on and you know was been helping her club from what i understand is being around family and i know that everybody warns differently. How amorn. I kinda like to keep my distance zam saying like i don't wanna beyond people phase will come into yeah. I'm naturally introverted so Tensions could be high and especially if you around people where you know that certain things to spark even more attention in unresolved things cancel comfortable in. So y'all probably don't notice marshes play. I made up with that. Ed told her on facebook. Irish downturns say you know. I never lied after. Forgive you know what i'm saying the you it was for me but it also was at felt like They will come to a point where we wouldn't be on the terms that we were before really weren't that close even before but it was unlike accomplish favor. Auntie t. year it wasn't a complicated fallout. So this situation makes me fall back from somebody when they when i felt like they heard me in that big of way so Basically my grandmother. She wanted me to come over in making me very hesitant. Because i don't feel. I don't want to be there in comfort. Somebody they want me to be there. When athlete they might not affirm me and then she says she don't want you to be there. She didn't why you've ever come to her house with me together in that affects me in a big way. Because that's what. I simply flowers. Because i'm like you know what sending my love you know like. He's really kind. That's really cut is like sending out. Because i don't know how to approach the situation. I'm ago when i'm ready. That's what i know. So i i wanted to know like in also taking consideration where she's older she could be passed away so like for me. You'll feel better to give some type of closure. But i feel like as like to ask y'all as trans people. In that situation by edgy. No you're going to be miss gender and your partner and you are now fern in the house will be know. This person loves you still and they want you to be there for them. You want to be there for them but you know you know as a transfer say could be a lot seed house you deal with that situation mia okay so i'm ago mumble like if i'm in the mood where after like okay. I can put some stuff to decide. Just to reich showy comfort to one of these times and after probably i could put aside but then also if i'm feeling like now i i don't wanna be a knee in an environment where everybody is michigan Already done set your boundaries. Really as far as isn't as not not respecting me in saying that you're going to disrespectfully are not specifically saying that. But you just don't give us do. I wanna put myself through that type of toxicity and order to try to help you do in in five. If i do if i if assigned okay. This is a time where. I don't want you to commune around her nose. I'm going to correct you. Each time is that. Is you know feelings of someone passing away going to override the more disrespect that you have for me. Because some people when they're going to things that revealed to their Which i really. I'm really kinda over right now and you already know about stu. So i'm back to give you this rat folk so i can kind of let that out let them. If it's much to battle juice egypt. I guess it depends on how best you are Island i don't think she'll be our. I just noticed. She saying ways in bed If you're to accept it or you're not going to accept her athletic aesthetic time atmosphere clinton also. Is this the time free. Okay personally do you have reflecting okay. This is time for meet to try to to correct somebody pronouns. For rogers from to be there for emotional support ended after work. It's like gather you. I could see that. I could see that. But that's okay. So that's how i could see that as soon as far as my experience at austin through the need to prove that i'm a good person proved that i'm a bigger person perks yet. Through you now being able to affirm me in you know. Let me try to came. I respect to their by showing how google person i am also don't want to lean on that old way of high handles stuff in sometimes that's gonna put my plate bows at my boundaries of a thousand. I want to take them too far in the. You also don't wanna be triggered in a whole episode like. He was on christmas a couple a year ago. I'm still thinking about their exactly. So how does she handled it. So i feel like because of this is a specific situation. You actually are in a perfect situation to get to do both of what you're talking about so i would not go over there with a bunch of family learn. It used to be with where it's just you and higher guy. If and the end the purpose of you going over there is to see how she was doing and to give her condolences for her loss. Were my grandmother. I am here To give you condolences and boom once that happens. Our response is gonna be well. Thank you baby indebted out of that now if the trend if the in that moment if the ms jane during the dead naming in that moment that may start right in that moment and what you say is y'all i just came over here to give you condolences but i you don't accept my transition and i don't like people calling me my own name like people calling me. She and all that kind of stuff. So i really can't stay here and in Not necessarily deal with it. But i can't stay here and accept that. But i'm just coming alley. Came for your dollars is now that i've done dat. I'm ahead out. Here's some flowers. Or here's whatever i am to give you. I'm going to give you a hug. And i'm gonna be out you came and you've been the biggest person but you all also said a boundary. That said. i'm not going to be disrespected while i'm here. I didn't bring my girlfriend because she told me that she didn't want my girlfriend to be here. Because you don't accept our relationship because you don't accept my transition. I give respect. I respect you setting those boundaries but my boundaries is. i'm not going to be disrespected. But because this is a special circumstances with your daughter dining a know you care to her on just coming over for these little bit of minutes that you allow me to give you a chance to give you condolences and then wanna disrespect our head out because my purpose here has been served. I came and gave you the flowers. Like aiming gave you the condolences. And i'm gonna give you a hug. Then i'm gonna be out just don't have to sit in the disrespect. 'cause i know you don't accept me but i'm just gonna be the bigger person until you dollas for your daughter dancing daughter dying somebody out so have a great day. You did what you wanted to do. You gave her the Condolences but you also set the boundaries. I don't wanna be disrespected. And then before you leave say if you wanna see me and i stay longer i really want you to. I just really want you to use my right pronouns calming by my name. If you can't do they're in you know it is what it is. I see the next answer by really bad state for what it may feel uncomfortable. But you are still the person who is sending the the your boundaries and also saying because just going over there and dealing with the name the name calling. That doesn't serve you. It doesn't serve you at all so but if you set the boundaries you are telling her. I care enough about you to deal with you for a second. You might call me my own name. When i come in writing the beginning but i'm gonna let you know that i don't really like there so i can't just sit in it because it's uncomfortable for me cars and i'm not trying to change our mind. I'm just here to give you my condolences. And that's what i'm gonna do. But i'm ahead out and you know if you do change your mind and feel different about me bringing my girl about me about using the right pronouns. I wouldn't even consider me because i wouldn't. I no longer would bring me around him until around right but wouldn't even bring that up definitely ios. This is my name. This is what it's gonna be. I did all the things. I need done do what i need to do. And is good. This is a permanent thing. This i'm not playing around. I'm not joking. This is who i am and i'm not going to accept it but i'm coming to give you condolences required to be respected if i'm not going to be respected. I'm gonna just give my condolences. Leave like really just really set that boundary. I just still being the bigger person by even coming. I could see. I could say fuck. Forgive not give condolences anyway. She didn't like me no way that she didn't like my girl or whatever but because we had some type of makeup or whatever you want however you describe it. I come and give you respect due condolences not respecting your opinion about my transition. Because i still don't like that giving you enough respect to give you condolences and if you let me stay without the disrespect. I'll stay whether you spec you're still going to be going on then. I'm going to be mad and customer by the hour. I'm gonna give you condolences. I'm gonna have to head out really simple like that. I'm out because my name is this and you know. I don't wanna be called anything else and understand your position on it and i'm not trying to change position but i can't sit in here and be disrespecting. I just came to give you condolences now that i've done that i'm hate out resume. Be looking to where. 'cause i already i was like. Yeah i'm gonna just wait it out here by challenges go away.

Joe biden pulled a trick playwright out of donald trump's playbook and he put his vice president in charge of a seemingly unsolvable problem or at least a very challenging one like one pence was made the corona virus czar or whatever was put in front of the charles if the is good for one thing. It's toscano a grenade bus running over it. I mean anything like that. I need that they gotta do something for us. Your life is easier that's the vp so for kamala harris. It's to lead all efforts at the mexico. Us border tough one. That's a tough one. So she's in charge of the current kids and people in camps or centers or whatever cages at the border as well as the record number of people that are seemingly just continuously showing up and they're wearing wearing biden. Please let us ensure it's it's really funny. What's funny about this. In the corona viruses at the crow virus was at least something that couldn't be controlled like this was biden signed in these rules to fuck up the situation and then he puts kamla on it. But yeah i would say ironic or or like. He know he's proven wrong. I don't know how funny it is not great and then throws her on the grenade. Good luck with joe. Their harris will be the. Us liaison from mexico and central america's northern triangle nations of honduras. Guatemala el salvador where they will try to Get the bottom of what the hell is going on with the record migration and i'm pretty sure honduras. Guatemala going amal el salvador mexico. Probably say i don't know maybe it's the fucking promises of a better life carlo right. It's the let joe by. Let us in squaring but started in their case close. You don't you don't hear honduras running their mouth bragging about how they're the best and the richest and have the most roads and the most schools no and we're gonna let you in because you deserve it. Biden had this to say this new surge. We're dealing with now starter with the last administration. Come on come. But it's all responsible to deal with the jack humanely and to stop what's happening. Here's the this increases been consequential but the vice presidents agreed. Come on come on. Come on come on among among the multiple other things. I have her leading. I appreciate it. Jacket agreed to lead our diplomatic effort and work with those nations except the returnees and enhance migration enforcement at their borders. No questions come on. I mean look trying to make light of this a little bit hard but it's fucked just like it was last year and the year before and it's actually just getting worse because so many. Yeah it's worse because of the surge because of in because the things he did. Well you've said this four times. Yes yes yes agree. Here's an image. That was released tuesday by the biden administration of the sleeping conditions of the migrant. Children this one's in donna texas. So i mean it's very sad at. I hope they start figuring some shout down there because these kids are not avenue. Good time good at base camp right though like look spacesuits from hell rest camp of everest. They're wearing literally wearing tinfoil. Yeah that's what they got. Good look hobby. Give you a nice tinfoil blanket. Would your this. This might be a punishment for kamla Come to think of it as this has to be a joke the sas to be joke factcheck friday this someone harris scheduled to appear in a one on one conversation with ex president bill clinton at like At a college about how not a joke. Speech to give a speech about how cove it has affected women. And we'll talk about empowering women around in the us and around the world through the clinton foundation jr. Nobody likes women. Nobody loves women more than bill clinton. That can't be true. Nobody that has raised some eyebrows. The fact that clinton's giving a speech in that harris's going to do one on one with maybe show rip them to shreds and call him a sex offender will see but some of the eyebrows raised from people like john juanita broaddrick a woman who accused clinton of sexual assault back in nineteen seventy eight when he was attorney. General let's take it to the internet where juanita broaddrick this to say on twitter. Is this a fucking joke. This pervert who raped me is going to talk about empowering women with a woman who spread her legs for power ou crust. Both of them. She continued shuki crossed. The if you haven't looked it up you could look kamala. Harris history and people do claim. She slept her way to the top. She can she can rest. She continued saying juanita to inviting bill clinton to speak on. Empowering women is like asking jeffrey dahmer to host a cooking class. It's apt paris cottam.

You know to three shows a week but always wednesdays and fridays afternoons for sure a clip at the end and now our interview with brad palumbo. Welcome to heart factor. Brad palumbo editor at the foundation for economic education and a conservative journalist. Brad we're hoping that you have a lot of information about economic policy because we have were completely illiterate and all that so well you know. That's what i do. All day is try to explain. Explain this stuff to everyday people in simple and accessible term. So hopefully i can do that. We got the right guy. Good good were We're probably stupider than your average reader just to be fair so just to warn you what you're getting into. I was a finance major way back in the day. But i drank a lot in college. Podcasters so right. I'm back to zero. Yeah okay the blade gets a little dull gets a little dull. I start to begin with it was like a two point eight. Gpa there's something like that so your expertise is going to be very welcome here at heart back your brad. Speaking of i promise everybody i've been asking a question on the podcast out loud lot like modern money theory. Can you just real quick before we dive in everything else. Can you just explain to us. Why money isn't really more deficit. Spending is limitless. And it's just because that's modern money theory right. We can just do what we want. Ryan tom so the ideas popularized by a left wing bernie. Sanders advisor named stephanie. Captain it's modern monetary theory okay and it basically says that because the us is the global reserve currency and because the government can print money that deficits do not matter. You can run however much in deficits that you want because you can just print more money to pay for it. So essentially the idea is that the government has limitless resources and deficits and debt and spending should not be viewed in any way as an obstacle to what the government can do. We can all have everything. And i think it is a fantasy and a dangerous one. Extra gist of the idea. Okay did alexander hamilton. Believe in that. What's what now i. I certainly don't think so. He believed that some things that didn't make sense but that this is a new idea. Or so what. What pitfalls are we going to run into like for example. I guess we might o our own federal reserve money. They might call that in. And then we we ever gonna pay china back. No right like we don't care about how much we will china do. We like. what's the deal. Well so the first thing just to just as a principal. The government can't create wealth. That's the first problem right if you think about it. The government can give people money but it has to get that money from somewhere. The government is re distributor. It's not a creator so the idea that it has unlimited resources without costs fails just at the very premise. Let's total power over everything though brad. If you're not gonna just you know. Consider that money yours all of it. I guess that. I like to consider my money mine but i people who believe in modern monetary theory would believe it all belongs to them all right and so the other reason that it fails just more practical is that debt does have costs. That does three things one. We have to pay interest payments on the debt every year taxes and with interest rates. Going up even a little bit were expected to start having to pay trillions of dollars in federal taxes every year just to cover the interest we have to pay that money even if the debt never gets called even if we never pay it back you have to pay the interest and it will actually soon. We'll be spending on interest than we do on national defense. That's incredible it's like what i personally have with my credit card debt where i'm paying too much interest but on a much larger scale. Yeah and for all of us in for our grandkids and it's inescapable and mostly to what federal reserve banks of different countries. Like our own and others. So actually yeah. Basically china doesn't actually own that much of the the debt think it only owns a few trillion off the top of my head. But it's not all owed to china. That's fed fed right right. A lot of it has to do with the federal reserve by lizard. People just well. That's the other problem right. Is that this idea that you can just print money. Well it's have. They ever heard of inflation. I don't know if people know this but inflation. We just print money. I mean that's what has happened. In venezuela in greece world work was for the world wars as famous pictures of germany where people have like dollar bills in wheelbarrows. Right right my friend my friend. Cassie doan posted a tweet today holding venezuelan bolivia ours and the equivalent of two dollars and it was a stack miss big that she had to hold with two hands in so the point is that that inflation is actually a really bad thing. It destroys people savings it. It's a stealth tax on people. So this idea that you could just deficit spend forever without having to ever pay for it or have any costs. It's belied by the fact that inflation is attacks itself. It hurts people at strangles the economy. At rhodes your savings so the whole thing is really dangerous. But this is the bernie sanders. Economic worldview increasingly the joe biden economic. You too. I mean you hear about it. A lot and affects every single industry. Like your gas prices like explain. Explain the relationship. It doesn't it doesn't affect every industry equally okay for isis in some industries rise. More faster than others but the overall price level averaged out across a bunch of these different industries through consumer index is what we talk about as inflation. There's industry-specific inflation to where the price of certain goods or certain industries really goes up out of control and This is my libertarian. Speaking but the three biggest ones are healthcare education and housing which also happens to be the three industries with the most government red tape and subsidies and intervention in the market. So it's not a coincidence. It's not the important industry sunnis healthcare and housing and right. Yeah i guess. Defense is the other big spender on top of those three right account as a big spender. I'm extra someone who believes in cutting the defense budget which isn't super popular among conservatives. But when you look at the long-term drivers of the runaway debt it's more much more to do with social security and medicare and these massive enrollment programs defense is a part of it but it's relatively small compared to the rest. Okay we we pulled up the debt clock the other day just a freak ourselves out so like zimet depressing so basically if you had to pay the interest on all of that that owed like i forget the. The amount is incredible. It's like is what's the word for it. I don't even know. Jill your mouth never like one hundred fifty to the twentieth zero stocking to happen though writers. You're saying that is so you're never going to have to pay. We're never gonna have to pay up all the money at once right. That's not at all. It's that the if interest rates go up or even if they stay where they are we're going to have to pay more and more every year just to pay the minimum payment like you say on your credit card rent So that becomes a bigger thing. The other thing is the debt itself. Just existing drags down the economy slower growth lower wages less investment in businesses. If you think of a slice of pie that's how much capital is available when the government borrows money. There's only so much money that's available. That is less money that could go to private sector investment so there's some very real consequences of the debt. It's not the kind of thing where you can just go. I know the memes are funny. Right but money printer for is not a actually a good way to govern a country. Will you mentioned okay. So we're talking about our country a little bit we talked to venezuelan. Grease a little bit. Is there any country that doesn't have debt at every country has to have debt right. I you can. I'm sure there's some with with no or low. Every country has debt most countries do but they have different levels of debt. What matters is the debt relative to the size of your economy right so the same way. How much debt you have on credit card debt is pretty relevant to how much you earn whether it's a bad level of us way over its head even though we have a giant economy but still like still so much in debt. So we're over one hundred percent. We actually own more in debt than we produce an entire year of the economy. And we're going to. We're rapidly approaching a point where we'll be one hundred and fifty or two hundred percent within a couple of decades. A debt to gdp ratio and that one hundred percent debt-to-gdp ratio is a red flag for communists. Really start to go south and we actually just crossed it during the covid spending binge So i have a couple of questions one is. How do you suggest we fix it to. It's like if if we do start fixing it isn't the fed gonna find some other way to get money because they're not really looking out for us right. They want money. Correct like hustle. Like what if you start fixing the debt problem when the fed just find some other way to fuck us well so the fed is separate from congress and congress is ultimately who would have to fix the debt problem and that's not really up to the fed But you have to do spending cuts. It's really that simple. And there's no political will to stop giving free goodies so my pessimistic view on the debt is that intel. There's a fiscal crisis or all of a sudden were paying trillions in federal taxes just to cover the interest and people are really like crap. We gotta deal with this until there's a serious problem. No one's going to address it. It's really we're just gonna get through oak. It's going to be like when everybody knows the train is heading down to the track is broken. But they're like oh we'll wait till we're right there to pull the emergency stop lever. That's when we go to. That's when we go to mars brad last night so we're just gonna do the roaring twenty s all over again so we'll just need along to have built his up space station on mars that we can all go to is actually. It's perfect timing because you can sell yourself into servitude for life on mars or the moon. Probably either one by then. You can't afford it. You can just work in a. Hey you could work it off. So that's the perfect time this next decade. Okay all right right. That's sound financial sounds bleak. Well imagine if you so. I like to put it this way right. Imagine if you were a parent you were a set of parents and you wanted to spend a bunch of money sort of like you know what let's take out a credit card in our kids name and run it up with forty thousand dollars a year and then they can deal with down the line. That's basically what congress does to us every out everybody does. I don't think you're very good data. If that's up shit i'm all right. Thank you for that explanation. That was i was very illuminating. Some sort of speaking of all the freebies the most free time ever right like is there ever been a more freebie the stimulus and then now with what's going on with tax credits and stuff on the other side as well. There's no such thing as a freebie so right. it's a spendy. you're listening well. Yeah it's a spendy their give there's a lot of swag being given out right now saying right so important point on this. Is that anything. The government gives with one hand has to take from somewhere else with the other right. If kim create well it prints money than that takes from other places through inflation so it is not a freebie. it's a give out an take somewhere else. And what interests me. Is this if you did out the map. We've spent six trillion dollars now. Cova relief now. That biden's latest bilas. Hit the books if you split that out. That is forty two thousand dollars per federal tax. Payer that's what will ultimately oh and have to pay in the form of higher taxes. Now think about it like this like yeah exactly so they could have given every federal tax payer a forty two grand check with the amount of money they spend on covert. Do you know anybody. That's got that much benefit. I don't know even close. That's what i was gonna ask you the so like abbie dangerous. Imagine everybody getting forty years. I'm sensing you're not. You're not a fan of the large packages like the one point. Nine trillions etcetera. The six mentioned but it is such a horrible time. Like are you favor in favor of the individual checks getting sent out to people that i think the programs that spend that give the money directly to people are the best of the bunch yet because the other money go ends up going to blow your center or whatever right like chuck schumer got a one point. Five million for a bridge. He wants built in his home. State the blue state bailout for state and local governments has three hundred fifty billion But there's no actual revenue drops. The revenues are flat this year. Twenty twenty they were all they have eighty six billion pension bailout in the last covid bill hundreds of billions for teachers unions in public schools. That's actually for twenty twenty three twenty twenty four twenty twenty five and twenty twenty six. Redistribution like you said right thing. Yeah i what i would say is that i don't think they should have done much less. Whatever they did. Do give directly to people that need it in terms of cash. So you'd like a female female program you're like emergency areas people. Just go out. Literates cut checks right of speaking of like giving directly to the people another. I i saw on your twitter talking about minimum wage. Like what are your thoughts on minimum wage. Fifteen dollars and stuff like that. I mean i certainly like shared goals that people that support that in terms of wanting more workers to earn more money but the fact is the real. Minimum wage is always zero dollars right. If you're not worth your heart real it isn't always zero so if you if you set a minimum wage that's more than they're worth to employers. They're not going to get the job. It is very clearly documented that says minimum wage would kill millions of jobs right. That seems high since there has been Minimum wages historically in the united states. Would you be in favor of something that was like a calculation something that like the could just slide with inflation or whatever. I think there should be no federal minimum wage abolish ages. Get rid of leave it to states so leave it to states because i was gonna say because there are also different people. Sure sure different so we just have. Heroin costs significantly different state to state. Yes we're decades though so it's just something that we've had it but it's so low that it's almost irrelevant right at seven fifty. Now this point it is so low that basically no one earns that basically no one earns seven fifty because almost every state has a higher minimum wage than that at the state level also even in the states that don't the average rate that they earn in the market is way above seven twenty five so i've run the numbers on this lincoln. A tiny tiny tiny slice of america mostly teenagers earns the federal minimum wage of seven. Twenty five an hour right there probably under the parents roof. This is an example. Though right of how disparate our country is a fifteen dollar minimum wage in puerto rico adjusted for the cost of living is equivalent to a sixty eight dollars an hour minimum wage in washington dc. Yeah i mean. I i agree with you that the cost of living is a really important factor state to state. I see no reason to do it on a federal level at all. It shouldn't be completely up to the state and local level. Speaking of states' rights Marijuana legalization do you think that we will see the more actor in equivalent past before twenty. Twenty two twenty twenty four. Even do you think that that that could happen. That would be good for the economy out. Imagine yeah absolutely ending. The drug war would be great for the economy. 'cause we're spending a lot of resources. Turn brad rocking people up for not hurting anybody with and making blackmarket jobs where you could have safe legal job. You could tax them right taxes but well right. Markets are the government's not part of that deal though you're gonna have some taxes on it like an like on anything right tax people still the question of when it will pass. I can't say like it'll pass by this year. But i can say everything's moving in the right direction. Republicans young republicans. All support marijuana legalization. Even congress people like matt gaetz. Who's kind of bozo in. Some ways is totally warning really puzzle or booze hound l. but so he is totally pro legalizing marijuana. He's one of the younger republicans so are most young republicans. So i think there's going to be anyone left opposing this ten years from now right. Even biden is a dinosaur on this issue most democrats and progressives totally down with it. He obviously still is firing employees who smoke weed. Fires biden was growing up during the reefer madness. Right like he was like. Oh yeah i watch that. Yeah well. He was one of the prime architects of like the drug war nineties right. He's i'm don't get me started on. Carmela she or both like lock them up. They're both heads. yeah i mean. She locked people up for marijuana then laughed admitted that she has smoked it so this was funny. The story last week about how the biden administration Up fired or demoted. A bunch of few employees who had admitted to having smoke marijuana in the past comma harris has admitted to smoking marijuana in her fire so brass while in her case just on the ticket. I think we're all in agreement on pro legalization weed. Knock it off with the drug. Were a little bit. But what about automation coming into play. Like that's going to really fuck us up. Isn't it like taking jobs. The economy are we all prepare for. What's about to happen with automation. Like yeah so. I guess i'm not i. I'll say it is different but i guess i'm not as alarmist up about it as a lot of people because if you look through history every every innovation people said it's gonna be a net job killer right. They said this about the car instead of the horse. Strong people adapt. And then you have. It's like the economy is not a set in stone pie that can only be divvied up or reduce the amount of work that needs to be done. It can actually expand outwards right so automation say that it replaces a ton of the jobs that we have but it also in doing so increases productivity where the overall economy in the amount of things we produce is much much much bigger so then there are more jobs in that even if there's fewer jobs were output i the scariest part about automation est like you know obviously automation for for the time being is going to be people need to automate the need to code and working on a mission. It's when the automation can automate itself. And then the coder. And that's when it's like second turns into battle star galactica the second level of automation. That's i think that's coming in in the next twenty years. Where auditing automates itself. and through. You don't need the designer that robot terrifying we all agree on when that robot though the dog walk robot romance uses those on the launch pad instead of people. Well i'm telling you if that shows up in my backyard breaking open my gun safe right can probably rally bulletproof when the bolts related related technology thoughts on crypto for. Oh i'm a big bitcoin Supporter for sure. Because the thing about bitcoin i mean i wouldn't say it's obviously volatile. Don't go through all your money in it but the dollar is not lookin' hot right. They're printing money like crazy. They're devaluing it this. The debt is going to affect the currency so bitcoin is really a hedge against government screwing with the dollar. If you store your money elsewhere That that can be smart. I think it's i think it's good crypto as a whole is promising. We're all getting into that but if everyone gets into cryptic. Where's the ceiling is. Is there a possibility that becomes a problem. I don't think it becomes a problem. Maybe it has a ceiling in terms of not being. It's unlikely. Bitcoin will ever catch on for everyday usage and the government could regulate it away. Well exactly elizabeth. Warren could come in with her wrecking ball and smash bitcoin two pieces. So that's probably the biggest threat to it right. Moore's actually dips but actually mark the more people that get involved with bitcoin. The less volatile. It will be so it's very volatile but like if it becomes really people in in mass investing bitcoin. That's actually the way that it works. It will become much more stable. Okay so will we get there. The bigger concern is the regulatory hammer because the feds want to protect their monopoly on cash. Right that allows them to stealth tax people. The government offered their own version of crypto wrestling. Right or the proposal while yellen talking about shoes like they're talking about. But i mean if anyone who's been to the dmv can tell me how far they'll trust that. That version of crypto right like the obamacare web sites crash on the first day the government is not particularly good at providing. Technology is oxymoron. Yeah when it comes to like providing to the past so get hacked right so i wouldn't be switching over to that anytime soon but yeah brad a lot. A lot to ponder there. You know maybe you could come back on and teach us dummies some more economic stuff in the future Yeah we're always looking for. Yeah i mean. I i've now probably infinitely smarter on economic policy than i was before this discussion definitely better than it was before the discussion oxycontin brand new information to one hundred percent of it and also the one thing. What about what's going on with that. Oh sure so. The government has put in place in a moratorium which basically says like even if you stop paying rent. Your landlord can you. Which obviously i have a lot of sympathy for people who can't pay their rent during covid screwed up solution. That's like saying okay. You can go to the grocery store. Take as much food as you want and walk out without paying. And that's fine if the government wanted so it's causing havoc in its screwing over renters and landlords right so if you are renting or paying a mortgage or whatever can you just not do it now just like okay. You might so. You'll all the money whenever this eventually last. Not the problem. I think that i. I haven't extreme sympathy. I don't want anyone to get addicted during this time. It's it's not fair. In my opinion it does welcome the landlords. But this isn't a get out of jail free. It's all like no. It's not because you're going to. Oh like all the back rent zooming that they ever let it expire which is unlikely if they never let expire than yes but what they let it expire. You're most likely the government will battle it out. Yeah they'll be like they'll bail it out. That's the mark so you're right technically the way it is now. You owe the bills right lakewood. They can't force you wolf for having paid my mortgage interest. I actually interviewed landlord on my podcast last weekend. And she told she was telling me how. She has multiple rooms that she rents out. And she's not renting them anymore. She's letting them sit empty because putting someone in them is so high risk because you can't collect the investment that it actually makes more financial sense for her to limit closed on landlords allowed to like charge like six months front like right. You can work out individual contracts right like technically. She could probably do that all time. Loophole i don't know so. I don't know the specifics of that. But my whole thing is like if they wanted to help people who can't afford their rent give them the money to pay their rent like you do with food stamps right. Don't give them of a basically get out of jail free card to steal. Yeah all these. Spending packages are like scammers paradise. It's incredible all the fraud stories that we've been covering lamborghini dreaming. Aw man like we. We're all like in the wrong business. You should have business scam in this whole time pussy. Should i responded. I reported on this fraud. Did you know that. Actually they lost. The federal government lost five times more fraud than they spend on. Vaccines i believe it. Fuck it believe it.

Ep 379 | Texas Is Open, Cuomo Is a Creep, and Rand Paul Is Based

"Hey guys welcome to relatable happy wednesday. Today we're going to talk about a few stories. We're going to talk about taxes opening up completely after the announcement of governor greg abbott. We're also going to talk about these. Andrew cuomo allegations and we're gonna talk a little bit about rand. Paul and his exchange with a person who who is called. Rachel levine and the theme that we are going to tap into is the idea of the government being on the in under the moral standard of god himself in white so important to view government as an institution. That is in submission to the god of the universe to the ruler of the universe. As we've said on this podcast. Before actually i think it was a guest. Who said this on the podcast. That jesus is king is very much a political statement. So we're gonna talk a little bit about what that means first. Let's talk about taxes opening up. So greg abbott the governor of texas. He's a republican a. He announced on tuesday of this week yesterday. That effective next wednesday. So i think that's march tenth. All businesses of any type are allowed to open one hundred percent. The governor said this this is according to the blaze at a news conference announcing the into restrictions imposed to slow the spread of covid nineteen abbott said declining hospitalization rates across the state and increase distribution of virus. Vaccines were reasons to end. The corona virus restrictions. So this is a very good thing now. Obviously most conservatives are very excited about this. I would say there are probably some people who are moderate and even liberal. Who are secretly excited about this. But because covert and covid restrictions have become so unnecessarily partisan. They're they're worse some negative reactions. I take a lot of negative reaction to particular on twitter and of course. Cnn regular suspects coming out with fearmongering headline saying that. This is so irresponsible gavin. Newsom the democratic governor of of california tweeting to greg abbott. That this is completely reckless. This is totally irresponsible. Now mind you gavin. Newsom is the same governor of california who has caught maskless several months ago at this very elitist restaurant the french laundry in california and so he has been hypocritical. I think a few times. He's been caught doing something similar to that while he has locks down. Shut down his state in a way. That doesn't actually correspond to any kind of science or data gavin. Newsom does not have any kind of moral standing any kind of authority whatsoever to be criticizing any leader of any other state particularly the state that californians are moving to try to flee his tyranny. So as i said on twitter when tax in start moving in droves from texas to california then maybe gavin. Newsom would have a place to be able to criticize governor app. it now. The reason why some conservatives aren't exactly jumping up and down and saying thank you so much governor. Abbott is because of the belief that this should have always been a choice like the mask mandate for example or closing down your business. A lot of conservatives assert should have always been a choice or it should have at least been made on the local level wearing a mask should have been made according to a lot of people by businesses themselves by local authorities or even just by individuals. A lot of people have argued that there really is no constitutional power for the governor or four state authorities to be able to kind of enforce something like this in so there are a lot of people a lot of conservatives who have been disappointed in governor abbott. And of course we know that he has been in a very difficult position because of course liberals are never going to be okay with what our republican governor dies and they are saying that of course he's killing people that like gavin newsom said. This is completely reckless and irresponsible. And i'm just going to let you know like really understand that mentality. After all of the data that has come out about how economically this is harming ball and consequently how this harming people mentally and emotionally how this is putting a strain on children being locked down in some places. How people can't celebrate this at the same time that hospitalizations are going down and the vaccine rollout has been going very smoothly and places like texas and florida and west. Virginia other red states. Why isn't this. Something that is applauded. Did you think that we were just going to lockdown indefinitely like at what point did liberals think that we were going to open back up when the virus just went away completely. Because what from what i've seen from. Scientists from doctors from the data is that we don't actually know if coronavirus is ever going to go away completely. It might be something like the flu. Which is really unfortunate but that means that we are going to have to figure out how to live life pretty regularly and pretty normally at some point and now seems as good a time as ever to do that. And so i think it's. It's good for governor abbott to make this decision and look if you still wanna wear a mask if you still wanna wear your cloth masks plus your surgical mask plus your face shield plus your gloves andrew hand sanitizer on top of the gloves and your scrubs inside your house along with the has matsuda. Go out and check your mail. No one is stopping you from doing that. You are totally free to continue wearing a mask. And of course i understand that not. Everyone fits the hyperbolic description. But if you are someone who is hyper weary about this or maybe you live with vulnerable person you can. You can wear a mask or you can keep ordering your groceries or you don't have to go out in public or go out and crowd or anything like that. You can make your own decisions. And i guarantee you that most big businesses most corporations are probably going to keep some kind of mask or at least strong suggestion and place either hard time believing target or kroger or any of these. You know these big stores are going to allow people inside their stores to not wear masks. Probably hospitals are going to keep asking their patients to wear masks. I'm guessing that this is going to be in place for a while. Ccording to what the businesses want to do stores want to do even communities want to do and districts want to do something that i don't understand about the liberal mentality is the idea that anything that is possibly good needs to be enforced from the top down. I don't understand the absolute resistance to any kind of localization or any kind of choice. Even if you think wearing a mask is you know a sign of virtue in a sign of loving and caring for your neighbor. Why can't you allow that to be a choice. Among individuals or choice among families communities and businesses. Why do you believe that has to come from the governor even more than that. Why do you believe that has to come from the president like why does all power in why to all decisions according to so many liberals have to be centralized in from the top down. Why can't people in areas be free to make the choices that are best for them based on the information that they have. That's always kind of what i've said. Not that the virus can be taken seriously but people for the most part should be trusted to make the decisions that are best for them and a for their family going back to what they said about conservatives. Not exactly being you know jumping up and down and copied about this because they actually felt like governor. Abbott went too far in the restrictions in the first place. The conservative mentality about all of this is kind of what i just described the freedom of choice. Not that the virus doesn't matter but individual freedom the freedom of businesses to do what they want to and that is because we believe that rights come from god not from the government and therefore they can't arbitrarily taken away by the government either and we believe the ability to provide for yourself and to provide for your family by keeping your business open and continuing to serve people and make money so you can put food on. The table is a god given right and we see the infringements on that right As something that is in has been disastrous for the past year and so of course from the conservative perspective. We are very disappointed. In how unfortunately so many people's lives have been ruined by the government because we don't think that that's the government's place the government can only do so much to keep you safe. I'm not against all government restrictions. I'm not against the government's place in everything. i think. The government has a very important role. And i think it's it's debatable. What the role of the government is in all kinds of things including in pandemic response. But i'm not going to be on the side of compromising our constitutional rights especially or even or especially when it comes to times of crisis. I just don't want to see people's lives and livelihood devastated by this kind of thing again so good job texas. I'm sorry. I guess to the texans who were disappointed in this move to new york. They seem to be doing great under the leadership of andrew. Cuomo were going to get to in just one second. I i've gotta tell you guys about a sponsor and that is built bar so if you guys are looking for a protein bar that tastes really good and that is healthy. And it's not filled with all kinds of sugar and additives and preservatives. And all that kind of stuff. Then you need to check out a built bar. The bars are low calorie. They are low sugar. They're high protein high fiber which means they're going to keep you fuller for longer so each bark contains only about one hundred ten to one hundred and sixty calories about sixty to twenty grams of protein. Which is really good for a small. They're pretty small little bars but they pack a punch and about three to five net carbs. So for example. If you're doing kito or something like that this could be a good option for you. Anthony tastes really good. All eighteen of their flavors are one hundred percent chocolate flavors. They're covered in one hundred percent chocolate. You can choose from caramel brownie cookies and cream. If you're a fruity person you can choose a raspberry or a similar flavor. They're all really really good mid brownie peanut butter. Those are two are really good so if you wanna check it out go to build bar dot com use. Promo code relatable. That's the name of this podcast. Go to built bar dot com use promo code relatable for twenty percent off your next order that is built bar dot com promo code relatable for twenty percent off your next order all right. Let's talk about governor cuomo. I'm kinda tired of talking about governor. Cuomo i've been talking about him for the past year a lot. Because of how center stage he has been in the media coverage of the virus and put a link in the description to this podcast from last to last. Monday's episode. Where i interviewed fox chief meteorologist janice dean and her her fight to try to raise awareness about the corruption of andrew. Cuomo as the governor of new york and how has nursing home scandal led the unnecessary deaths of thousands and thousands of elderly new yorkers. But it's not just that scandal that we are now talking about. We're now talking about him. Embroiled in a scandal so there have been several former female staffers to have come out and said that they were sexually harassed in some way by governor andrew. Cuomo the new york times reporting on this. The title of the article is cuomo must admit to his predatory behavior accuser says. The time says this in a series of interviews with the time. Smith's bennett twenty-five said that mr cuomo had asked her questions about her sex life such as whether she was monogamous relationships and if she had ever had sex with older men do miss bennet who had served as an executive assistant health policy advisor before leaving state government. Last fall says that the governor had also inquired if she believed the age difference in romantic relationships and it said that he was open to relationships with women in their twenties comments that she interpreted as clear overtures to a sexual relationship. I am just like holding back my gag. I feel so bad for this girl. There was this picture going around and we can put it up on on the screen if you're watching on youtube of his interactive andrew cuomo andrew. Cuomo interaction with one of these accusers. He's got his hands like kind of behind her head and he's looking at her and smiling and she just looked so uncomfortable and of course. We don't know the full context of the picture. We don't know exactly what was going on there. But that in coordination with some of these accusations that have been made by multiple women. You just kind of get a sense of what kind of person andrew cuomo is this in addition to former staffers and state legislators who have said that he's a bully like he just bosses people around the mayor of new york city. Bill de blasio hates andrew cuomo and loves to talk bad about andrew cuomo and is very excited about this whole scandal. He is probably helped fan the flames of all of this because they don't have a good relationship. Yes they're both democrats and they're both totally incompetent by the way so they have a lot in common and yet maybe because of that is just too much incompetence for one st. They just don't get along very well. So bill blasi. I think is probably loving this at this new york. Times article goes on to say that bennett's lawyer said he was not acting as a mentor to her and his remarks were not misunderstood by. Miss bennett said ms catz washington based specialists in harassment in employment discrimination he was abusing his power over her for sex. This is textbook sexual harassment. I understood that the governor wanted to sleep with me. It felt horribly uncomfortable and scared misfit and was wondering how i was going to get out of it and assumed it was the end of my job after reporting her her interactions. The new york times says with mr cuomo in early june to his chief of staff miss bennet was quickly transferred to another job in an office on the opposite side of the capitol from the governor. No disciplinary action was taken against mr cuomo. Who has ruled new york for more than a decade until i agree with the warriors assessment. I'm not a lawyer but this does seem to be tax book sexual harassment if her account is true and of course like all accounts all accusations. We don't know for sure what happened. We don't necessarily have any reason to disbelieve this person. But just like i would. I would say to anyone who is accusing anyone who is being accused. We have to look at the testimony. We have to look at any witness testimony in corroborating testimony kind of other factors any kind of consistency among other accusers. And i think that there is a lot of consistency among other accusers. Which means these. These allegations are probably very credible. They're probably very true. So i do think that we have to kind of sift through all the details to ensure that we're not just latching onto some kind of witch-hunter some kind of gossip but just like we would do for any republican politician. Just like we would do for any other scandal. We listen to the testimony. We kind of we. We look at the details. We listen to the witnesses we listen to what the lawyers have to say and then we make the best decision that we can now is. Your cuomo has already come out with a statement saying that. Oh you know. I'm just kind of like a personal guy thought that i was just having friendly interactions with these people but now i see it. It went too far and of course. Governor cuomo has championed or says he's a champion of women's rights. He says that he is for women. Within the metoo movement and all of that and it's so interesting how male feminists are men who described themselves as feminist so often end up. Being these kinds of creepy does. And i think it goes back to what we talk about a lot that people use liberal activism or their support of liberal policies liberal issues to try to insulate themselves from future criticism or condemnation of things that they are guilty of and so they kind of think that they can shield themselves by being a faithful democrat or being a loyal leftist. And really it ends up. Never being enough like you can't be you can't be woken off when it comes to this kind of stuff it's going to end up fighting you out of finding you out. There was another accuser lindsay. Boylan she worked for the state economic development agency from two thousand and fifteen two thousand eighteen. She published an essay on medium dot com talking about many of her uncomfortable. Interactions with governor. Cuomo that he would go out of his way to touch her on her lower back her arms or legs that he gave her an unsolicited case. After a one on one meeting in his manhattan office which is really crazy disgusting. There is anna rousch. I don't know if that's how you pronounce her last name. She said that she encountered mr cuomo at a wedding. They attended in september. Two thousand nine hundred nine. They began talking about a toast. The governor had given but mr cuomo put his hand on her bare lower back. She said that he seemed aggressive. And that she was just made uncomfortable in the midst of all of this. And like i said cuomo said you know i never intended. These interactions to be anything more than anything more than friendly. But you can certainly see how these women would be made uncomfortable by a man and this kind of position of power tree them in this way and then thinking that they can't say anything about it and i know the question is always why. Now why did these women wait so long to come forward while the first lady that we talked about as she actually did report this remember to the chief of staff and she was transferred. Some somewhere else. I think that's also detail that is in her favor. As far as credibility goes. I also think that people are just scared like we can't discount the fear that people have in coming forward and reporting allegations. I really don't. I don't like when people dismissed accusations and allegations of just because a certain period of time has transpired a lot of people depending on their jobs depending on what position they're in depending on the scenario that occurred depending on what power there. The accused still has in their life. Depending on just a lot of personal factors may be too fearful to come forward. The same thing is true of the ravi. Zachariah stuff like people were asking well. Why didn't the women at the spa ever come forward if this is if this is really true why wait until after. He's dead because they were probably scared. Like i think that the accusers are probably very often worried that something is going to happen to them. Maybe something's going to happen to their family. Something's going to happen to their employment and so they might not feel like they actually have the cover to be able to come forward until they're the person that they accusing ms embroiled in some kind of scandal. And they know that they'll probably be protected in some way if you come forward and when one person comes forward i think it also gives protection and empowerment other people to come forward as well so that could very well be what is happening here now. There are also some cynical theories out there about why the media is just now choosing to come out and criticize governor cuomo after for the past year. Flattering him saying that. The i think it was molly jong fast of the daily beast saying that people are crushing on cuomo. There was a cnn article. Saying that cuomo should run for president. There were all kinds of complimentary articles about governor cuomo. And it's because like we talked about last monday. he served as a foil to president trump. Affoil as you guys probably know as a literary device to compare and contrast to another character and so the media likes to be able to hoist him up as the competent and the confident alternative to the buffoon of donald trump. that's why they saw him as useful but now he's not useful anymore because president trump is in an office so they can put up this facade of objectivity can put up this facade of impartiality and they can report on him as if they're valiant and if there as if they're brave as if they are on the frontlines of truth telling when in reality i guarantee you. A lot of this stuff was known by people around governor cuomo and was known by the media for a very long time. I guarantee you that people sat on it until president trump was out of office. I have a very hard time believing that if president trump was still in office that all of this would be coming out now. That's just my opinion. That's just a theory but conservatives have been talking about this nursing home scandal for a very long time and we were told that we were just conspiracy theorists about it. We had an episode on all of this last april when he was still denying it in the media was still in denial to conservatives have been talking about the nursing home scandal and his incompetence in his corruption for for months now and the media just ignored it and it continued to flatter him and they continued to point to him as the example that all governors and even the president himself should follow until. I think it's perfectly justified for some of us to question the motives of the media. Now here's another theory. That i talked about last week that i again. I do not know if it's true. This is just my opinion. This is a theory. I heard political insider. Talk about this. And that is the idea that the democratic establishment the media are actually trying to take cuomo down because they do not want him to be a presidential hopeful for twenty twenty four and apparent. Leave some of the same people again. This a theory are behind their recall. Gavin newsom movement. That's happening in california. And apparently the purpose of trying to get cuomo out of the running. Try to get gavin. Newsom amount of the running is to ensure that kamla harris is the presidential pick for twenty twenty four because she is going to be the vessel for every single policy that the the obamas and their ilk wants to want to push and so apparently she is what the democratic establishment want. So they're trying to elbow out andrew. Cuomo they are trying to elbow out gavin newsom. Anyone else who might consider running on the democratic ticket in two thousand twenty four to make the way for kamala harris. I don't know if that's true or not. I think it's an interesting theory. Also the age of new york. She probably has her eyes. Set on being governor after cuomo is out until there's probably some selfish motivation there because she is conducting an investigation into all of this is the new york attorney. General letitia james report the washington post. She will name outside. Investigators to had the probe of cuomo's alleged misdeeds involving two women who worked in his administration. The letters signed by beth. Garvey special counsel and senior advisor to the governor was disseminated in a news release later in the day and that was reported that was reported on monday. And so there's some politics going on here like within the democratic party. There is something going on here. There is a reason behind why they're suddenly being honest. Just because trump's out is it because they don't like andrew cuomo's at some secret reason we don't know but i'm not believing that this is just a matter of integrity. I'm just i'm just not. This would have happened a lot earlier if it was a matter of integrity. This is a reason this whole this whole scandal is such a good reminder to us of why we do not put our hope in the government like why we do not idolize politicians whether they're on the right or the left because they are going to fail us they are going to be bit a disappointment to us at some point and this is also what happens. I think when power gets to your head when media flattery gets to your head. And you think that you are insulated from these kinds of accusations. It's kind of amazing. How many men in particular have thought for so long that they were going to get through this whole quote metoo movement completely unscathed and just moved forward in their predatory behavior. I guess ego and pride and power just does that people at blinds them to reality. It prevents them from being able to hunt humble themselves to resist hypocrisy. Unfortunately for andrew cuomo his pride has gotten the best of him in all of this the kind of swagger that a lot of people were attracted to a year ago is now turning out to just be playing all arrogance and it's ugly now. I wish that we were society. Who could remove partisanship from these kinds of accusations and that we could just look at the standard of objective morality. That got his place before us and that we could have been having this conversation several months ago when some of this stuff was known about nevertheless i am always glad when it's on the right or the left when the truth comes out and when justice is served i pray in this situation. That justice is served remember as christians. We believe that justice is impartial. It's truthful it's direct in its proportional. That's what the bible tells us. That god's justice is until i pray for all of those characteristics to described the kind of justice that is executed in this case. But this is what happens when we when we are tossed on the waves of partisanship when we have to wait for cultural moments like me to to do the right thing. And to hold a certain leaders accountable. What happens is released. Sketchy timing what happens. Journalists sitting on a story until it's politically expedient to them What happens is people denying that their guy is guilty of things that they say. They abhor so as christians. What we have to do is we have to stand in the gap of all of that and we have to say no matter if this is a republican or a democrat politician. I want the truth. And i want justice. That is our responsibility in all of this and unfortunately we're just not in a day and age in america where we can expect most of our elected officials to operate under that kind of god. The impartiality but that doesn't stop us christians from doing so we believe is romans. Thirteen tells us that the government is instituted by god. That chapter also says that we are to submit to the government. Christians understand that in light of all of scripture to be To mean in so far as the government does not cause us to send or does not tempt us to sin so we are supposed to submit to the government but in that context in chapter the government is also to submit itself to god. And we see what happens win. An elected official winner governor which this has happened a lot especially over the past year when their power gets to their head. The bigger they are the harder they fall. And i think that's what we're seeing with andrew cuomo okay before we get into that i do want to tell you guys about a new sponsor and that is start mail so free email services like g mail or yahoo or probably whatever you use aren't actually free because they are paying with your privacy and so you might get the service for free but they're taking your privacy. They're taking your data. They're selling it to the highest bidder. Which means that they are looking through all of your emails and all of your information to try to make money off of you. That is how you get these free services. You were actually the product. They are making money off of you and your privacy and so that is why start. Mail is such a good alternative to these big tech companies. They keep email private every email. You send encrypted. Even if the recipient doesn't use encryption which means big tech companies or even start male cannot read scan analyze or sell your personal information ever not even big brother can snoop around in your email start. Meal also prevents government agencies from spying on you like dragnet operations with start. Male deleted actually means deleted forever. It doesn't go into this secret digital cabinet or archive where big tech can still look at it. When you delete an email it is actually gone. Start mail uses. Its own servers. Not amazon servers. Which means they're not going to be put out of business like unfortunately happened with parlor. It's also backed by the most stringent privacy laws in the world. You get unlimited anonymous. Aliases this feature protects your main email address from spam and phishing attack. So when you're giving your email to accompany but say you wanna protect your identity. Start male can generate a sharable alias. Emails so people cannot sell your information and it can be deleted at any time. So if you don't trust big tack if you don't want them looking through your emails that you should secure your email privacy with start mail and if you go to start meal dot com slash ali that start mail dot com slash alley. You get fifty percent off your first year so that start mail dot com slash alley for fifty percent off your first year that is start mail dot com slash alley all right so last week. We didn't get to cover this exchange between rand. Paul and biden's h h s assistant secretary pick. We talked about executive sarah last week with lila. Rose will put the link to that podcast episode in this description. Who is the. Hhs had pick by joe biden and is very frightening. How rabidly pro abortion and anti pro-life he has been When he was a of california for example we talked all about that. You really need to know who sarah is. Go back and listen to the episode from last week but another nominee that has been tapped by the biden administration is a person who goes by the name of rachel. Levine rachel levine. I think that's how you spell her last name. Maybe levin is transgender. So the phrase that is used is trans woman. This is a biological man who dresses as a woman. Rachel levine. And i. I don't know what the original namus i'm gonna say rachel levine. Racial levine is binds. Pick to be assistant. Health secretary senator rand. Paul brought up the issue of giving puberty blockers to minor. So i'm gonna play you a little bit of that. Exchange american culture is down normalizing the idea that minors can be given hormones to prevent their biological development of their secondary sexual characteristics doctor levin you have supported both allowing minors to be given hormone blockers to prevent them from going to puberty as well as surgical destruction of a miner's genitalia doctor levin. Do you believe that or capable of making such a life. Changing decision is changing one sex. Well senator thank you for your interest in this question on. Transgender medicine is a very complex and nuanced field with robust research and standards of care that have been developed. The specific question was about minors. Let's be a little more specific since you evaded. The question do support the government intervening to override the parents consent. To give a child puberty blockers cross sex hormones and or amputation surgery breasts and genitalia. You have said that you're willing to accelerate the protocols for street. I'm alarm that poor kids with no parents who are homeless and distraught. You would just go through this and allow that to happen to a minor. What i'm alarmed at is that you're not willing to say absolutely miners. Shouldn't be making decisions to amputate their breasts or to amputate their genitalia for most of our history. We believe that minors don't have full rights and the parents need to be involved. So i'm alarmed that you won't say with certainty that minors should not have the ability to make the decision to take hormones. It will affect them for the rest of their life. Will you make more firm decision on whether or not minor should be involved in these decisions. Senator transgender medicine is a very complex in nuance field. And if confirmed to the position of assistant secretary of health. I would certainly be pleased to come to your office and talk with you and your staff about the standards of care and the complexity of this field. Let it go into the record that the witness refused to answer the question so doctor levin did not want to answer that question which is really troubling. Grandpa asked a very easy question. A question that should have an obvious answer when he asked. Hey do you think that doctors should be able to bypass parental consent to give puberty blockers to kids. And when you're talking about puberty blockers you're talking about kids. That are eight to eleven years old. So you're talking about kids that don't even know what they want for lunch. And they can't even make any kind of decision outside of what is right in front of them now. Kids are very smart and obviously they are valuable and they have their own inherent rights in. Everyone believes in that. Of course we believe in that but we believe in protecting them and conservatives believed that the family is the best place for that child to be protected and that parents are the only people who really have the best interest of that child at heart. Their teacher might really like them. There might be friends parents that like them. But i guarantee you sold this bureaucracy. Random doctors do not care about the best interest of child. There's a really really troubling movement coming from the far left the they guarantee you will become more mainstream to try to strip parents have any kind of parental rights to say. That children belong to themselves that they should be free even at this young of an age to be able to consent to life altering hormone treatment that could end in sterilization that could end in depression that could end in unnecessary anxiety and is not backed by science. By the way we've talked about on this podcast most kids who are actually gender confused. Who actually feel uncomfortable in their bodies grow out of that discomfort by by puberty and so going ahead and trying to stop their puberty is only going to causes irreparable harm to their bodies and also to their mental health and they're also so many contradictions to this nowadays. Apparently a little boy who wants to play with the barbies or who wants to dress up and his sisters. You know princess dress in crown. Apparently we're supposed to tell that boy that he's a girl and that he was born in the wrong body. When i was little. I never wanted to wear dresses. I didn't want to wear a bow in my hair i wanted. I wanted to jeans. I wanted to wear a white t shirt. I wanted to read books out of the library about snakes. I wanted to play with worms and bugs. And i am so glad so glad that i wasn't raised in this day and age where i would have. Maybe been questioned by a teacher. Questioned by a pediatrician or child psychologist. Whether or not. I really was a girl of course. Of course. I've always loved being a girl at the same time that i was doing all of those things that i had met the man that i was the boy that i was going to marry when i was in preschool. I had a boyfriend from the time. That i was two years old. And so we have to allow kids to be kids and the fact that we may have a person in authority in health and human services who believes that parental consent should be bypassed to give kids cross sex hormones before they go through puberty terrifying. It's terrifying that we've gotten here. I mean this is a person who thinks that they're the opposite sex anyway so of course we should be troubled by all of this. Why is it as i say so often. That children are the subjects of these progressive. Social experience actually. I know why it's because they're vulnerable. It's because they can't consent because they are convenient lab rats for these progressive. Who want to be able to prove their their theory about something like gender identity. This goes back to where gender identity came from. Which we've we've also talked about on this podcast which i will include a link to the biblical. Tell us of gender in the description of this podcast episode. John money the doctor. In the nineteen sixties who performed sexual experiments on onto twin boys to try to prove his gender identity theory gender being something or being something separate from from sachs. Those twin boys ended up committing suicide. Like his theory has been debunked this idea that gender and sex or these two separate entities and that we should be able to change a mutilate our bodies according to what we feel and think on the inside like there has never been any data. Never been any science whatsoever to prove that. That's actually what human nature tells us and yet we're pushing it on vulnerable children who cannot consent. They cannot consent and i'm very troubled by this nomination of levin. I'm very troubled by the nomination of sarah. I applaud rand. Paul for infusing sanity into this situation so often. Republicans don't want to have these conversations like they're willing to talk about religious liberty and protecting institutions. They might even talk about protecting the privacy of young girls or the the competition of girls who ran track in high school in college but they're unwilling to say they're they're unwilling to actually talk about the merits of the issue like so many are just unwilling to say sorry. We can't become a girl girl. Can't become a boy and so we shouldn't be even having a conversation about changing the hormones of a child. I mean we can have a conversation about adults making a decision to be able to dress the way that they want to or to even have the surgeries that they want to have. Of course morally. I'm going to disagree with that choice but legally that's not necessarily something that's a fax me but we're talking about children and when christians especially believe that it is the responsibility of other christians to protect the least of these that we have actually been charged with that responsibility. We can't just stand by and say yes. It's totally fine for the state to bypass parental consent or for parents to consent to a child irreparably harming their body a decade or more before their frontal lobe is even developed. I mean it's insanity that we're even having this conversation. It's insanity that this is a pick by joe biden once again all the evangelical for biden that thought that he was going to be a moderate pick that he was somehow going to be morally neutral as if moral neutrality even exists. I just wonder what you're thinking or are you even paying attention. Are you even paying attention to any of this. Even have you considered what this means for your child. Have you considered what this means for parental rights. What this means for your school for your for your pastor this equality act in these nominations. These picks by joe biden's administration. It's really troubling. It's really troubling in good for rand. Paul good for rand. Paul for infusing reality into this conversation for not being afraid to speak up about this. Speak up about this. Of course the media was very angry about all of this saying that it is so transphobic that he even asked these questions. A apparently he compared it to genital mutilation and people were very angry about that. But i don't know what else do you call it. When you chemically castrate a boy before he goes through puberty or when you have a minor who is fifteen sixteen years old who decides that she wants to have a double mastectomy because she now identifies as a boy and she can sometimes do that without parental consent. That is genital mutilation. It's not just genital mutilation when muslim countries. Do it. it's genital mutilation even when it is approved of by the state and by the democratic party. It's still genital mutilation. So people were very angry about that. But that's because they're angry at reality. They're angry at biology. They're angry at human nature. They're angry by the truth. Of course the more that you insist that two plus two equals four. The people who insist the two plus two sometimes equal five are going to be very attitude. They're going to be very frustrated. They're going to gaslight you they're going to tell you that you're the crazy one for believing what humans of all cultures have believed for thousands and thousands of years and by the way. This is a very western american problem that we're having it's so interesting. How the people who say that. They're on the side of their anti western anti white anti privilege. Anti rich will. This is a very western white academic elitist rich issue that we're having you don't see this going on in other countries and to the extent that you do see this going on in non western countries it is because of the influence of western countries coming into those countries insane. Hey by the way. Did you know a boy girl and girl could be a boy. So talk about colonization imperialism by spreading these kinds of insane ideas to countries that want nothing to do with him. It is absolutely disastrous. Parents have to push back on this more people than rand. Paul in the republican party have to push back on this argue on its merits. Do not see any ground. I saw some representatives. That were mad at marjorie taylor green. Who look i have my own issues with. Marjorie taylor green. But she put up a sign outside of her outside of her office saying they're only two genders men and women. I even saw republicans saying that that was bigoted that that was wrong. That was are you telling me that. It is the official republican line that there are more than two genders. tell me conservatives. What do you think that your conservative conserving. If it's not that. I mean this is very very disappointing. I am thankful for the people who are willing to speak out about this very basic reality. I am even more thankful for the people who are speaking out in protection of our children. Who like i said are always the unconvincing teen subjects of all of these crazy dangerous experiments on them. There was representative from florida representative. Greg stupi. he spoke out against the equality act and he did exactly what we've talked about arguing this on its merits. He says it's not clothing. Her personal style. That offends god but rather to use of one's appearance to act out or take on a sexual identity different from the one biologically assigned by god at birth and his wisdom got intentionally made each individual uniquely either male or female true when men or women claim to be able to choose their own sexual identity. They're making a statement. That god did not know he was doing when he created them which is absolutely right. Good job for him for invoking the name of god in this goes to the theme of this episode that the government is an institution that was instituted by god. God is the transcendent supreme moral giver. He says what is right and what is wrong. What's good and what's bad. What's true and what's false. What's male and female. He is the one who dictates reality to us. He is the one who defines all of these things and so it is not theocratic. It is not christian nationalist for people to acknowledge what god has defined as good in right and true. The founders knew that politicians for the past few centuries have known that remember. Secularism is not an neutral ideology to say that we shouldn't invoked the name of god because jerry nadler rep jerry. Nadler said in response to soobee speech. God's will has nothing to do with what we're talking about here. Goswell has everything to do with what we're talking about here. Of course it does and for people who roll their eyes and say. Oh that's just the aquatic nonsense. That's christian nationalism. No no no you believe that. Your religion of atheism agnostic progressivism. Whatever it is. You believe that your secular ideology your so-called religion should be dominant and so you are just as much of of some kind of religious zealot as you are accusing me of being. The fact of the matter is everyone has a world worldview. Every law speaks to a set of moral principles. People say you can't legislate morality. Every single law has to do with morality. The question is who says what is. Morality says what is right and wrong. My argument is that god the transcendent moral law. Giver is the best person to tell us what is good and what is bad. It's going to come from somewhere. Our ideas of right and wrong ideas of who is in charge and who is not where our rights come from. All of those ideas are going to come from somewhere. The people who tell you that it's dangerous to save it. Those things come from god. They don't realize that they also have their own ideology their own religion their own faith their own value system competing against yours that is not neutral. I mean as we've seen throughout this episode secularism is it neutral secularism. According to the person who is called. rachel levine. Means that parents don't have any authority over their child before their child's decides to take cross sex hormones at the age of ten years old. That is a secular idea at a secular ideology. that's not neutral that has tangible consequences on people's lives into good for greg stupi. Good for rand paul. Good for the people who are recognizing that there is an authority higher than them. That is important in all of our individual lives but so important for the government if the government is not tethered to something that is bigger than them to a value system that is bigger and better than them then their own pride in their own authority in their own elitism in their own self righteousness it ends to the kind of corruption and tyranny the kind of infringing upon the rights that we have seen so prevalent over the past over the past year and so we continue to pray for our leaders. Let's pray for wisdom for the biden administration and that they would be making better decisions than their. hhs picks and nominees. Let's pray for governors as they start to hopefully recognize the constitutional rights of their citizens again. Let's pray for governors and leaders that are caught in the same kind of perverse temptations that we have seen governor cuomo fall into and let us pray that these leaders would start submitting to god in his authority and his moral definitions his scientific definitions when it comes to things like gender rather than inflating their own egos in falling into a kind of corrupt leadership that unfortunately has negative repercussions for all of us. All right we will be back here tomorrow.

Michael has NO uncertain words for Biden voters...| Yesterday's PM Show (blame Johnny)

"It's time time time mocking loaded. Michael berry show is on the air. President trump left the white house today and entered marine one for very likely the last time he and malania exited with their heads up not wearing masks their faces to be seen so that history will record what to be a very famous picture and so begins the next presidency as joe biden. Daughter'd up to take the oath of office. I don't have anything to say about. Joe biden more that woman who is his vice president. I don't have anything to say about. This moment am not happy. I'm not proud. It is not historic and those people trying to say that it is historic because this woman is the vice president are simply pointing out that absolutely. Nobody cares for joe biden and those people were not cheering for the newest supreme court justice when she was confirmed to the senate at a time when they called her the worst of names and worked so very hard to prevent from serving in that august roll. My thoughts are that this is a sad day and a wakeup call gets a wakeup call to a lot of things. It's a wakeup call that we have a lot of work to do. It's also a wakeup call. That there are bad people around us. The policies of the biden administration will not be surprising. They will not be out of character for him. They will not be shock. It's going to be a madhouse. I liken it to a really inept substitute teacher who can't keep the class under control and there are going to be spitballs. a flying the democrats are going to have their way. It is going to be one of those moments. I don't know if you've ever been in the middle of a melee but if you have it is head on a swivel because the strongest are going to do much better than the weakest. But you don't know who the strongest in alexandria ocasio. Cortez has the ability to use her skill at headline grabbing to drive an agenda. It's a very powerful skill. Indeed she has the ability. Don't underestimate the woman. She's not as dumb as you think as many people think. Oh she's dumb. Don't get me wrong. But she's very adept at using the media to share her words and her ideas and keep her in. The news and celebrity is in and of itself a power in this country. Don't underestimate it. Kim kardashian has it. Connie west has it. Donald trump understood the force of that power of celebrity. He was a ubiquitous brand. In this country everybody knew donald trump. You could love him or hate him. Most people just kinda thought he was the guy who was really famous. They may have thought he was financially successful. They may have thought he was brash. But everybody knew who he was. The power to be in movies on tv interviewed everywhere. All the time is a very powerful skill. Joe biden doesn't have it. he's not interested. He doesn't command the attention of an audience. That's when nobody goes to hear him speak is not interested. He's boring nothing he has to say. That's new the man's been in the senate for as long as i've been alive he's swamp creature. He's it'd be no different. From bob dole or john mccain meant you know we we see these people mitt romney. We we know these types of people. They've been around a long time. They they have nothing new they. Just they speak platitudes and sort of political speak. I must admit. I enjoy biden. Because he goes off script he wanders off. He says the dumbest thing ever. He's he's like the grandfather at Oh what's the will ferrell movie. The racing movie where the kids says. Shut up grandpa talladega. He liked the grandpa at the at the dinner. Remember when when he gets upset at the kids and the kids tell him to shut up. That's what this is going to be and you're going to have to focus on finding a way to cope a. My way to cope is to laugh at joe biden because to take him seriously will only make you angry. It will only make an it would be like the ugliest girl at the pageant winning and then being told that she's actually the prettiest when we all know that's not true but in this case there are real consequences and there will be real consequences to our economy to our liberty to are standing in the world. Joe biden will take us to war. I suspect by june first. That's my. that's my deadline. It may take longer than and many of you. Who are yourselves warmongers. Because we a lot of neo cons republican party law folks that love war. Oh they won't admit they love war. They'll say that we're keeping america safe. They'll tell us that we have to fight them over there so we don't have to fight them here. Which is operatives because the very people who loved to go to war also tend to be open border types. The very people who loved to go to war thought the muslim ban as it was called was a bad thing. And i'll remind you because now we begin. The trump legacy. I will remind you to know what happened and be able to answer what happened for instance you're going to hear that donald trump was a bad person and there was a muslim bam. I hear that not true at all. There was a ban on visas immigration from countries where terrorism has run amok and. They can't keep records on who these people are so that we know when they come here what we're dealing with as a caravan of of terror in the president put a stop to it. I believe it was only six countries. But it's it's been a few years now. We begin the process of writing the history. Don't leave that to the left. Don't forget the good that was done. The battles that were fought the accomplishments that made our country better because in time they will be forgotten and it will be important that we remind them. Southern fried southern fried the michael berry show third. That was chris. Taper off something it was talking some crag along me Watching most black just don't know was an every year stapleton to see whiskey again written by david allen copay but this i'd rather go blind i think etta james wrote a positive etta. James died on this day in two thousand twelve at age. Seventy three from complications related to the media gushed over the last few days over. Joe biden's choice to be his assistant secretary of health of pennsylvania. Health secretary rachel levine. She is supposedly the first transgender nominee to a senate confirmed position. Our our the media is oh ramon. Please don't ever do that again. That is not a pretty person. They are ignoring the fact that she imposed cuomo type policies on nursing homes after. She got her own mother out tucker cart but she was born a man and now says she was a woman. And that's really all that matters to the media. How very exciting. For america tucker. Carlson spoke to pennsylvania state senator. Doug must know who described what happened for the rest of us when that person was the What was in pennsylvania. Here is that in pennsylvania and new york possibly in other states nursing homes were told they were required to admit patients. Infected with the krona virus outbreaks inevitably resulted. Thousands died leaders didn't care in pennsylvania in perhaps the most shocking offensive example of all illustrating. Just how little government cares about you. The health commissioner of the commonwealth. Rachel levine moved her own mother out of a nursing home before she could fall victim to the resulting death trapped as many times as we tell the story. It's hard to believe that it's true. Your state health director moved her own mother out of a nursing home and then force nursing homes to admit infected patients. But that's true. Is it not it is in. You can't make this stuff up. So last monday called for levine's resignation. Yeah and then. The next day we find out that the secretary of shenanigans with the secretary's own mom evacuating mom to a safe secure location at a lodge of deluxe suite. And so what about the rest of they get. Parents grandparents aunts and uncles. And this sort of thing you just never magic's going to happen in america especially pennsylvania the birthplace of independence and freedom. And there. you have it. But it's a man who says is a woman that's all. The media cares about a report today. That joe biden is expected to restore the iranian nuclear deal. That obama cut and that quote israel will have nothing to discuss with him. Our key relationship with israel being put aside as biden scurries mac to the welcoming arms of the iranian terror. Mongers because that's what democrats are now. They'll han omar will cheer. Israelis will be scared. The obama backers will be thrilled and the world's jewelry will understand that we are less safe than we were before. These are the natural consequences of a biden presidency. If the safety and security of israel is an important issue to you but she voted for joe biden because donald trump tweets things. Then you are an idiot. A complete and utter unmitigated idiot. You are unbecoming of american citizenry. You have wasted the franchise that so many fought so hard to give you. You did nothing to earn. The consequences of the biden administration will be dire and people will be. I know this because people who were so proud to tell me that they were going to vote for. Joe biden because trump tweets mean. Things are now going to want me to join in with them. 'cause i'm the place. These people come when biden does something stupid. I'm the place. They come like their confessor. Where where they they come and tell me how angry they are biden because surely michael will be glad to hear them. I don't wanna hear it take it elsewhere sleep in the bed. You made each your crap sandwich. You should not be surprised. You're getting exactly exactly what you should have expected. There are no surprises. Biden will not surprise me on his first day on his first afternoon. He signed sweeping orders to re engage with the international organizations that seek our destruction to re-engage with the world health organization that on january fourteenth of twenty twenty said that the chinese virus could not be spread from human to human how many people contracted the virus and spread it to someone else. How many people died because of what the world health organization said. They knew better the chinese new better but they did it because the chinese told him to a report coming out on monday of this week that the chinese economy grew more than any other economy in the world last year. China had a banner year and it needs to be said in large part because america suffered at the hands of a virus that china infected us with it came from their very own labs. They won't let us go in and see what happened. There are consequences to us pretending that china was not involved in all of this. There are consequences to the selling of america's influence to chinese entities. These are not people who who seek to coexist with us. The chinese communist party seeks domination at your expense and joe biden will be a willing instrument of it. I just hope biden gets. I just hope hunter gets paid.

You'd think that germany would have enough sense. The uk's telegraph reports quote. Germans who repeatedly refused to enter quarantine after being exposed to corona virus will be held in detention centers under new rules drawn up by regional. Legal experts say the detention centers are permitted by emergency powers granted to german authorities during a pandemic the eastern state of saxony where hospitals have been struggling to cope with one of the worst corona virus outbreaks in the country has confirmed plans to hold quarantine breakers in a fenced off section of a refugee camp new york post notes.

Sorry grandma and grandpa. i know you're old and old. People are the ones most likely to suffer and die if they contract corona virus unlike young people nevertheless athletes are first class citizens. And you're just not the nba commissioner. Adam silver says that the nba has discussed giving players the co vaccine. Now you might say to yourself. Well that's pretty crappy. Basketball players are young. They've got good cardio. They're running up down the court all day they're healthy they're strong they're not the people co morbidity who could die from this thing why would you give them the vaccine before the people I know how we fixed that instead of saying we're given them the vaccine because the owners have got a lot of money tied up in these people. I mean you think about it. You're paying a guy three five seven ten million dollars a year if he up and dies or even just gets really sick. Cost you a lot of money right. He's an entertainer. Can't just replace him. Don't think you can just replace him. Not the elite you look at what the loss of linney bias cost the celtics when their top draft pick collapsed on the court and died that franchise suffered for a decade or so as a result of that because they were pinning their hopes on him being the next the next big hope for the team right. So here's what we do what we do is we claim that it's a public service. As a public service the the players are going to agree to be vaccinated so that people will see them and since they're such influencers other people will agree to take the vaccine did. Did we not have people agreeing to take the vaccine at this point. Why are you giving vaccines to the famous people who are allowed to hang out with no masks on when the people at home who have to wear masks need the vaccine. You're oh you're doing this to show us why we should be willing to get the vaccine. That's not available to us yet. We got it. We're stupid sure.

Swale will was sleeping with the chinese spy and taking actions to aid and the chinese communist party and he's had no consequences. I actually feel sorry for this. Little traitorous bastard. He probably didn't do anything compared to what hunter biden and eric swallow did. He's got to be thinking to himself. Wait a minute. Hunter biden got paid millions and millions of dollars and he hadn't had to do anything eric. Swale will has never even had a slap on the. He didn't even lose committee assignment. He wasn't censored he wasn't even really criticized by his own party. This is a guy who forwarded live on national tv. Like a straight barney frank. He's never had anything he smelt. It dealt it and and nobody has done anything about it. Old my yop in going man. This can't be right. The chinese are so determined to infiltrate our government steal our secrets sicken our people and dominate us and we catch him every day and yet the president of the rochester new york n. double. Acp texted pictures of his penis to a young woman and then after he was busted claimed that the pictures were actually four guess who he claimed the pictures were actually for his wife his wife as if we're supposed to believe his wife is sitting at home cooking dinner. Hey honey hours just making some egg plant and cucumber salad and it reminded me of your if johnson could you just real quick take a picture and send it to me what that i might be spy it whilst making your dinner for this evening because i cannot wait until you get home to take a gander at your little special friend.

Good because we got the photo here. There's no doubting you send photo. That's good all right. Intended for my wife to an individual i was working with. Oh so you you send it to the nineteen year old girl. Who's an intern in your office. Accidentally thought to your apparently he has been harassing her for some time and she says i'm writing this so you are all aware of the type of person he is. I'm going public will be asking for his resignation. Oh honey i'm sorry resignation. He'll get a promotion. he's a democrat. Did that time time. Time locking load. Michael berry. Show is on the air. We begin with a story of migrant caravans. There are between seven and eight thousand hondurans who have crossed over into guatemala on their way to the united states. Now that's not to say those are the only folks coming to the united states illegally. That is to tell you that they're doing so publicly their daring us to stop them. And do you want to know why they're doing well in the words of one of them what i want for my people want patient and pass that we can get to the us because they have a new precedent. Where's he going to help. All the russ he given us a hundred days to get to the us and legal to paper so we can get a better life for our kids and family. That's right joe. Biden has announced. that aren't day one. He will make those in the country who illegal legal so folks who are not yet in the country are saying well. I better get there fast. This is a rare opportunity. And so we're going to see a lot of folks coming across borders in taxes california and arizona. We're going to see folks showing up in all sorts of different ways. There is an unintended consequence to an announcement like what biden made. That is an incitement for seditious action. An insurrection of illegal aliens to invade our borders. That is exactly what it is. It is an inducement to people you are basically ordering them to get into the country as fast as they can so that they can have all the benefits that you have that you paid for that others paid for now if you walk into the capitol today you will be forced to show a valid id credentials. Why are you here and approve. Approved passage through a predetermined checkpoint before you can enter the nation's capital. You have to do all those things as an american citizen to get into the capital of the government. You pay for you served. Your family members died for but those who are not citizens of this country. Do not have to do the same in order to get into your country. What kind of people think this is a fair and just system. I can't make peace with these people. I can't agree with these people. There is no compromise between us. If you wish to give to people in other countries that which only belongs to americans and you wish to take away from americans that which rightfully belongs to us then there is no middle ground. There is nothing upon which we agree if that makes me a radicalized middle american so bit. Those are just words. I think you're a radicalized bicoastal elite for thinking this is okay if unlimited free immigration across borders was a good idea. Then surely there would be one nation in the world that allowed for it if it made your country so much better than surely china would do it or north korea. What do they have to lose people. They're trying to get out if anybody was actually trying to get in. Surely you'd let them play that clip again. What i want for my people are just want patient and pass that we can get to the us because they're having a new precedent whereas vitamin you're going to help all the russ he give us a hundred days to get to the us and legal men to paper so we can get a better life for our kids and family. Is that guy a bad guy. i don't know. Do i understand the sentiment. Of course i do. Whose heart doesn't go out to somebody. Who was unfortunate enough to be born in honduras or guatemala. Instead of the united states of america. That's sad it is. It is sad but is the answer to let those individuals come here. Because if it is there are regions of the world poorer then honduras and guatemala. But they're not lucky enough to live in nations contiguous. If you want to look at the it's sort of or whatever you wanna call the the central american passageway without having an ocean inbetween. I've been to parts of africa that are far poorer and the people love to here. I've been to regions in india where people are suffering and there are plenty of other places in the world. So how did we decide to let these individuals come in in this manner. How did the democrats decide that. Our laws don't matter. They're not they haven't changed laws they've just kept from enforcing them. Imagine the border patrol agents in how they feel. What are they supposed to do now their job. Oh we heard. The capital cops are heroes. One of them even died at the hands of these radical trump supporters. How many border patrol agents are killed by illegal aliens every year. How many of them are beaten. How many of them suffer bottles thrown at them. Bullets fired at them. How many of their wives and husbands go to bed every night hoping they'll come home in the morning because some of these people are real savages trying to get him not all plenty of people just want a better way of life but if i want a better way of life and that means bread for my family john version and i bust the window out in your restaurant or home. It's still a crime. It's not defensible. These people are imposing a radical agenda. Media will call you a bad person for opposing it so when they call you and your neighbors a bad person don't do like the establishment republicans and keep an open mind join in because they're ways of manipulation are clever they are deceptive headland washington post forty one minutes of fear a video timeline from inside the capitol siege. That's the capital siege. Have you seen with those hondurans or doing to the hundreds of guatemalan officers. Who were assembled to stop them coming in. Have you ever seen what our border puts up with every day. There was a blm protest. Yesterday they got out in the middle of a freeway and lay down thank. God it wasn't congressman that were inconvenienced We can always do these. Interviews live on the air because often we can get the guest for the window of time. When we're live on the air. So i will often pre record an interview And then air it now. We're always very careful that we don't edit anything to change what someone said or to alter the conclusions they came to but sometimes we have to chop off a portion of the interview because i get carried away these conversations and i become interested in what the people have to say. And we'll go too long so if you ever noticed that an interview sounds like there was more to it than you heard you know went longer if you go to the podcast. We don't edit them down. We play at link. Well one of those occasions where it. I spoke to our guest for longer than the time i have for this segment and he had some very interesting conclusions that we won't be able to get to throughout including having served in the trump administration is to chief economist for the council of economic advisors He had thoughts on that and on what are called deaths of despair. We're gonna talk about that but the interview goes longer if you'd like to hear it in its entirety again. Go to the podcast and listen there wherever you get your your podcast. Each of our interviews by the way is a standalone podcast. Also so you don't have to listen to the entirety of today's show. You can go just to that interview if a guest was of interest to you and you want to see what was the name of their book or who was at person again so there we go. Let's get to that interview. We are focusing on the effects of lockdowns and what has happened. Over the past year there are economic effects businesses. That have been lost. Many jobs with it there have been layoffs. There's been financial pain for many people myself. And many of you included. There has been a loss of freedom. There have been many losses this past year but one of the things i think that is not received sufficient attention and we're about to rectify that right now is what are known. As depths of despair. Working paper by kacie b mulligan entitled depths of despair the incidents of excess mortality in twenty twenty says that deaths of despair are often defined as deaths involving drug overdose suicide or alcohol abuse. Kacie b mulligan is an american economist and author professor in economics at the university of chicago and interestingly served as chief economist for the council of economic advisors in the trump administration. This is not what we had you on to talk about. And i'm not even sure if you offer opinions on this. But in case you do as chief economist. For the council of economic advisors in the trump administration from september eighteen to august of nineteen. Did you have any thoughts on the decisions. The administration made as it relates to economic policy economics. Generally sure yeah. Big change of that president. Trump promised You know he. He was not came from the outside. He was not beholden to special interest groups unions trial lawyers and those things so he had a lot more freedom Any actress hype that and he. He lowered prescription drug prices. First time in forty six years for example He did Internet prices came down because he Allowed more competition among the big companies. They had gotten pretty privileged position He brought cheaper health insurance So he did all kinds of things that really upset special interest in washington. Because he's favors. The government had been giving them over the years and he took them away and let the consumer becoming in charge again. Very interesting stuff. What an interesting thing that had to be for you to get that experience a lifetime of stories to tell no professor depths of despair for you to be talking about this and the incidents of excess mortality must mean that it's more than we would have assumed 'cause i'm guessing you otherwise wouldn't have taken up the subject i'm in is more than we would have assumed this is a subject i've been working on for a while President trump was Quite interested in and there's a high priority. He wanted all his agencies to be giving thought to this because the Especially the drug overdose. Overdoses part of that had gotten way out of hand over. The interest was related to his brother's death from alcohol abuse That's probably that's part of it. But i think he When he campaigned in twenty sixteen and even when he was kind of doing the groundwork before that he heard the pain of a lot of people families who lost members to drug overdose and he thought it was time to start to give it serious attention who had been ignored for more than a decade. He's not overly sensitive man. I've never met him but you obviously know him. But he doesn't appear to be overly sensitive man but on this particular issue. He has offered a deeper sense of himself in his private views and emotions than on some others and an has said that. That's why he himself doesn't drink an interesting choice for his personality type. It does appear to be something that that has a lot of personal meaning because of his brother's death. And i think this administration deserves a lot of credit malania worked very hard on the issue of of overdoses talk if you would about the depths of despair and the excess mortality and to what extent that can be linked to the lockdowns in the la- the lack of fellowship. If you will. Yeah there's it's one thing that we're we're seeing. We have enough data now to to know that this Twenty twenty was a year when more people died than normal Many of those were out elderly from covid That's clear but they're also quite a number that were Not elderly and they were not from covert in fact among the extra deaths among working age people a little more than half of them are not covert so for sure. There's something else going on. That's causing high mortality among working age elderly people. That's for sure the other thing worse getting bits and pieces of evidence. Now is that The drug overdoses even though they were high in two thousand nineteen eighteen seventeen and sixteen. They're even higher in twenty twenty especially After about may march or april there was a big increase in drug overdoses to the. We don't have the data from the entire country yet for those parts of the country. We have the data very clear. Big big jump in drug overdoses In april and then another jump up in may and continued through the summer You know what did that come from. s something to do with the pandemic. I think the timing. You know april's not an accident of drug overdoses are usually a seasonal thing I don't think they've ever been a seasonal thing. So what what happened. In april well the was really starting to affect our lives Did from people being alone indirectly or directly that that's a factor for sure You know there was also been a lack of police I know i live in chicago. Quite a lack of policing This spring and summer. And so maybe that kinda let the illegal markets kind of run free and that that might have been a factor another thing. That happened is very unusual in april and may and through. The summer was people lost jobs which a lot. But just. but that's happened before and we didn't see drug overdoses when people lost jobs. This time people lost jobs anymore. Giving a lot of money And you know somebody needs to ask the question you know. How many dogs can you buy with six hundred dollar bonus so we This is not something. The normal person does what they're six hundred dollars but maybe there are enough people doing that. To tattoo became the comes a factor. These are things will learn in the next year or two as we get more. Data b mulligan american economist and author professor in economics at the esteemed university of chicago. Thank you for being. Our guests are my partner joining us yesterday. This is the michael berry show Joe biden wants a national lockdown but to the lockdowns even were our guest phil. Magnus a senior research fellow at the american institute. For economic research author of numerous works on economic history taxation economic inequality the history of slavery and education policy in the united states has written a piece that caught our attention entitled twelve times. The lockdown owners were wrong and in case. You wonder what. I talked to the guests about before we start the interview. I often ask people what they had for breakfast. I find it very interesting to see how people started their day and Phillips answer was that he had french toast and he seemed a little bit embarrassed because that was somewhat indulgent but he said he was off today. So that's why he did it. Did i get that. Right is crystal feels really indulgent on a wednesday. Whether or not. I have to tell you. I'm kind of jealous. Ramon and are both on diets. So we're really just haven't eaten for twenty hours right now so anyway so twelve times. The lockdown were wrong. How did you go about this research. And did you go into it with the expectation that the lockdowns don't work. And what main. How do you determine whether they worked or not so fascinating thing about this whole ordeal we've had for the last I guess we're going on ten months now of fighting the coronavirus pandemic with a very blunt instrument of lockdown strategies is. It's a topic. I started to research back in the spring as most people. When this first onto the scene in one of the first things that i noticed going back to the old epidemiology research really anything that had been written about him dimick's prior to about everywhere your march twenty Took a tone was was actually very skeptical of whether these walk down instruments work There was court that came out of johns hopkins university One of the top medical departments in the world in september two thousand nineteen and they basically said You know there was a pandemic mitigation measures. We use but walk downs. Have a poor performance record. They haven't worked at times and try them in the past This is a really bad instrument that has a lot of costs associated with it. Also noticed that if you go to january's as january two thousand twenty just or just a year ago now. Anthony sow cheese. Gave an interview with cnn right. After the wuhan region in china enacted its first lock downs and he basically said this is a politics never work in the united states. I can't ever imagine shutting down new yorker los angeles and. He says that the reason that he couldn't imagine this is because when you look historically when you shut down it doesn't have a major effect on the pandemic. What happened two months later anthony. He was leading the charge to walk down new york los angeles and the rest of the united states. So you're seeing this track record in how it's performing played out over. The last nine months has been eye opening and what it tells us about the expertise that we put our trust in with our government. You know what's so frustrating about that. Do you have a sense of wife. Ouchi gravitated toward lockdowns and then embraced them. Well the main thing we hear from the narrative coming out of washington was right after That report was published by imperial college. One and this was the epidemiologists. Neil ferguson they happened around. I think it was march sixteenth of last year that really kind of the political scene in both the united states in the united kingdom by giving them this projection. If we did not walk the on two point two million americans to die doomsday scenario. And that really drove Everyone that had dust far been fairly reasonable. On the mitigation efforts the into a frenzied walked down mode and they rushed through the open policy in just a matter of days. Next thing you know We were operating under two weeks flat and the curve which candidate few months which is now extended to almost a year so they don't work from in terms of They don't work in terms of the spread of this very content of this relatively contagious virus. But let's talk about the economic impact because that's why it's not a well. Who really cares if they work or not. Let's try everything. But i you start with the loss of freedom. But secondly as an economist. What kind of damage did we do. There is massive. Almost historically unprecedented damage in spillover effects of blocking down there was a study. Just came out Last week it estimated the toll of shutting down the economy the poll with unemployment from the year. Two thousand twenty if they spread it out over the next fifteen years there. Estimating almost a million excess deaths will occur from poverty and unemployment related causes. We also have Queer evidence compact recessions and economic on whenever the economy goes into the tank substance abuse. Though is on the rise suicide. Start to go up. And the early data we're getting into the cdc right now shows an unprecedented spike in opioid abuse. Jeff happened coincidentally right in march two thousand twenty and point out at least through the summer. Which is the most recent data that we have so the economic impacts of this are are not only pronounced in immediate sense and the packets that i had a huge unemployment crisis over the summer. Take place these are things that are going to be with us for years maybe even decades to come yes and and i worry about the trend. The precedent that we've set that folks the folks who become fearful Want the government to give them a sense of security reminds me of the old. It was ben. Franklin line who said those who seek What was it those who seek security those who seek and security from the government. Our freedom will get neither what was the. I just lost it just as i started to say. But the point. Was you sacrificing your freedom in exchange for a sense of security in your point is it's a false sense so for all the negative effects it also doesn't stop the spread which is the part. That's really irritating. Infuriating and you know the the classic line is the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. For what have we been doing for the last year. It's locked down after. Walk the on after down. Not just in the united states that we saw in europe and the uk other parts of the world they keep using the same policy instruments over and over again and it doesn't what it promises it doesn't defeat virus it doesn't flat curve And it's made basically no noticeable guests on the pandemic's course itself compared to other locations that did not lockdown other states. It did not walk down so he started to have asked the question of yourself. Why are we in this. Horrendously costly policy response to know effect. Not only doing it just once. We've done it now. Three or four times in repetition states and it seems like there's no end in sight. Michael berry show won't take you see guest phil. Magnus senior research fellow at the american institute for economic research has written a piece that caught our attention entitled twelve times. The lot downers were wrong. Item number seven on your list of twelve times. The lockdown has got it wrong. Scientists suggested that ocean spray spreads covid. That was as late as april second. They were saying such nonsense flesh that one out that was one of the odd stories. Some of your Your listeners may remember back in. The spring of the state of california was arresting people for walking alone on the beach. The worst example was the guy that was out paddleboarding on his own in the middle of the ocean in malibu and they sent out the police boats and arrested the guy and find him and people. Actually why is this. the case. we'll there had been a a claim published allah the one of the epidemiology department california This crazy theory that storm water runoff washed coded out of the air It into the streets into the gutters out into the ocean and then ocean waves would stir it up was like a spray and spread it across the beach and that was how a big transmitted. There's a major story on this. La times papers out there and no one really ever investigated whether this was true with kind of like a crackpot kyrie but You know within a couple of days of this This claim being made police departments around arresting people on the beach because They themselves thinking ocean spray is is spreading. Cova here my goodness one of your points is that new zealand and australia have declared themselves cove free. They've been very successful in combating cove have new zealand and australia. But that the reason is not because of the lockdown the reason is their unique geography and how they've walled themselves in. Can you speak to. That is absolutely the case so Prior to kobe coming on this with a well-known feature of yet to be the all literature that it is possible to at least for the short short-term contains if you have a geographically advantageously namely in island that has few entry and exit points. If every visitor to that. I wind comes through One or two airports. It's relatively easy to seal off the borders if you do it early and you do it. Before the disease is really taken root New zealand and australia where somewhat fortunate in this respect and they did not get an earlier undetected reliable. So good we know this disease popped up in. Europe probably is as as early as december last year it probably arrived in the united states around january last year australia new zealand. We'll later on their rival day. They didn't have nearly as much undetected spreads to when they shut down their borders. Basically worked as a at least a short-term and effort the problem is you cannot replicate that for most countries in the world Give an example. There are single. Airports in the united states like new york. Jfk or london heathrow in the uk to have more traffic Going through that one airport and given year in the entire nation of australia does so. It's really not a valid comparison to say that we could copy. What australian museum and did the other twin to this is even know. A border closure does keep viruses out In the short term. It's a very fragile so we should. It can't work definitely 'cause you know it's simple matters of human error mean that case what's through undetected or maybe a a border agent wasn't enforcing quarantine and the right way on that day or or Maybe there's an undetected or waibel that comes with someone that didn't really know the habit and this is what we've seen is a recurring pattern in both australia and new zealand over. The last year is even though they successfully Gonna down on the pandemic and he kept cases though They keep coming up with these political decorations. So so you stand argon The prime minister of israel new zealand over the summer had this ceremonial cleared. The country had one hundred days without pay and then two days later on day. One hundred and two an undetected case. It's through the border wall and suddenly they were backing lockdown again Same thing is happening in australia. On numerous cases where they They declared themselves being victorious over in and then a couple of days later and undetected case comes through even shut down an entire province there because there was a misreported case that was connected to a pizza delivery driver and then they went back and investigated and found that it was at error but What keeps showing is that. Even though acquainting victory over codes time and time again The fragility of their strategy is such that victory. Is it not a permanent solution. Something that's really difficult to maintain Some not only does it not apply to the rest of the world because of geographies. It's something that internally and movie on an australia's caused both of their governments and a lot of Embarrassment by claiming victory. You note that anthony fauci pointed to new york to the line in the wall street journal. He said of new york they did a really good job of keeping things down and still their level is low compared to the rest of the country and say new york did not do a good job with their policies and they probably made it worse. You speak to that new york state if you look at the number of kobe. Guess per capita. They're not only one of the worst locations in the united states there. One of the worst patients in the entire world with new york and new jersey are gonna neck and neck and the number of desperate capita and this comes out of just completely bungling and botching. The covert response From the outset in the spring the most agreed. Just of this was Now infamous order from the governor cuomo of new york several other states around there also copy it said that nursing homes have to readmit kogas. Positive patients That basically come to their doors and the idea behind this order was that they thought the hospital system was going to be overwhelmed. So you build track capacity by Patients to transfer back to the nursing. What turned out the hospital Overwhelming really never occurred the way that they predicted. But what we did see was that Thousands of coated positive patients were transferred into the nursing homes and they ended up being carriers into the nursing home facilities and suddenly the next thing you know covert his spread to the entire facility One of the most vulnerable segments of our population. The elderly and shocking. It has a A a massive astro afterwards associated with the latest statistics. Nationwide say about forty percent of all cova deaths in the united states have come from nursing homes alone. This is a segment of the population. Less than one percent of the population accounts for forty percent of tobin and new york is one of the worst Areas for basically ground zero for botching the nursing home policy so knowing that It that anthony. Any time could look back at new york and say wait a minute david at right and he not only did this over the summer when they were coming out of the first things were finally increasing. The number of cases the number of us repeated themselves Just last month in december when he was asked this question again says well who did it right and he answers new york state get it right or look at our stat of new york state in the fall what happens they had a second wave again and that second wave was more severe than other states with similar. Large populations compare new york and four. The side by side ford is open. New york is not new. York has a higher death rate in the falls for us. Philip thank you for being our guest. I don't know if you're smarter. Not but you sound smart and you know what that counts for a lot. You come back and talk to us anytime. Thanks for this good research.

The Age of Remote Work: Arianna Huffington and Karen Mangia on Managing Burnout While Working From Home

"She welcome back to blazing trails. I'm michael reba from sales for studios in today. I'm joined by my podcast partner. Rachel levine. Welcome back to the show. Rachel good to be here. Michael pretty excited about today's episode because you got to speak to none other than arianna. Huffington career highlight. That was cool. No doubt but even more exciting as you're back from your vacation tell me about What you did. We haven't had a chance to talk yet. The well i mean you know it was the first vacation in over a year at an and that we got to leave the barry and go to the beach and it was just yeah mind blowing. I mean it was really important to take that time and be outside and kind of do something normal and you know of course we were safe and stayed in an airbnb and kept our distance etc. But just that feeling of doing an activity that you've always done and enjoyed and taking that time was so important for the mental. Oh well that's what. Our episode is all about today which is wellbeing mental health and bringing that to work. And how you can make that a part of this new hybrid world that we're going to be in and one of the key ideas that is in the episode. Today is about this idea of steps these little small things that you can do. Sixty second kind of reset moments that you can do. Throughout the day that really help with this really ambiguous situation where all in figuring out this new way of working yeah. I think it's so important. Because when you try to change behavior and kind of do it in a radical way. It's overwhelming you know. In a lot of times you say you know. These are my habits. It is what it is but if you look at it in these tiny little bite sized chance i think it does. It makes it a lot more doable. So yeah that was really useful information for me. I can tell you you know. And there's a lot of science behind this which is behind a lot of the work that thrive global doing right now so we get some great insight into these micro steps and how we can think about using them in this new hybrid world definitely. So let's get right to it. Let's hear your conversation with best. Selling author and ceo of thrive global arianna huffington and karen mongia vice president of customer and market insights at salesforce. It's great to be here. Lovely to see you arianna. And i love your dress. Thank you love your top address definition whenever nowadays exempt greater. I appreciate that arianna. I love the latest book from thrive global your time to thrive and burnout increase. Well being an unlock your full potential with the new science of my kristaps so many good takeaways and especially loved what you wrote about waking up in the morning and the first thing that you did was check your cell phone the impact that that had on you. I'm guilty of doing the same thing. And i bet many of our listeners are so tell us why. This was such an aha moment for you. Well how we start our day and how we end. Our day are sort of pretty critical to the day we have and seventy two percent of people start their day by going to their fall before they're fully away before their feet have hit the ground. So what we recommend. That thrive and this is kind of one of my favorite out of hundreds of micra steps for behavior changes to take sixty seconds. Before you got your fault to be very intentional to focus on your breath to remember coach. Grateful for to fame. Ply- get ready for the day and as you said my call be clear about what your priorities are as opposed to what the world wants to view which is what i've found is for love absolutely starting the day setting your intentions versus what others expect from. You is a big mindshift when we have so much pressure to be productive karen. How is remote work. Changing our definition of what it means to be productive and successful. I think sometimes we get our relationship with success a little bit wrong you know. We have these myths and misconceptions that six asses the result of being always on and working all the time or that success. You know we just work hard enough. It will show up or it's the result of this perfect plan. And what this pandemic has offered us all is the opportunity to ause and to consider how we define success now as lots of extra activities and navy business busy work and some fringe friendships. Maybe have kind of faded away during this period of time. I think our opportunity is just to pause and consider what does success mean to us personally and professionally now so that we can put the routines rituals in boundaries in place like arianna referencing to help us access that success and what i hear so many people sharing as they're discovering that it's not chaos that they're valuing that leads to success it's really connection in creation and making sure we make room for that and arianna. How do you think this is going to change. I know you've been doing so much work. Around both from a company level and individual level had operate in the world and think about that from an empathetic point of view. How is it going to change now. In a in a hybrid work world where is individuals. We're going to have to take so much more ownership of how we conduct our day to day work life so they one good thing about the pandemic and you know this was a period and it's ongoing of incredible losses you know. Losses of loved ones financial losses uncertainty anxiety. Which the one good thing is that at the stanford economist date crisis is a terrible thing to waste. So we have an opportunity to use the crisis as constantly to redefine productivity based on all the latest science and also to redefine as currents said what success is our other hall book on that thrive which was about the fact that we've reduced success down to the metric of money and status and we've identified status so much with business and being always on and of the badge ivana we need to go back to ancient wisdom that defined the good life as and being about much more than that and seventy about including our wellbeing wisdom offensive wonder about the mystery of life and giving back so that as a complete life and the forest vase of the pandemic has led to many of us looking at our lives in people away and looking at. What is it that we want from life. What is it that we've value. And what is it that we can say no to and a lot of it has to do also with our addiction to device center so some of it is work-related. And what is the hybrid world where creating at work. Some of it is personal. How do we set boundary ourselves because even if you have the past working environment if you get back to your own life whether you've been working with him out or not and you end up continuing to doom. Scrawl on social media. are binge. watch netflix. On night you're going to wake up and get into that cycle of barrena. Speaking of burnout. Arianna talk a lot about the science of micr steps and how they are key to avoiding it. Why are you optimistic about micro steps. And how can they help us achieve more balance when verizon. Why i'm up in. Mystic is because we know from all the latest science that we all have displays of peace and wisdom and strength and resilience venus birthright so these migra steps help us reconnect with it. You know nobody that. I know leaves in that place all the time. That's not the goal. Maybe there's a sane somewhat in the himalayas but for the rest of question of. How quickly can we cost. Correct and get back to that place and that said you know frankly. I would be a top this hall library of my stabbed hundreds of them. Who had them to make them as we call it too. Small to feign. Very small actionable steps that lead to healthier habits and when we know that we give people not just the awareness of what they need to do but ways to get there and frankly i left the huffington post to launch strive. Because i wanted to help people go from knowing quadra due to actually doing it because now increasing you have more and more people know that foundational out in unity and our mental health. Who know you know that eating too much. Sugar in processed foods is terrible for our health. That moving is important. John chapter at petra but the question. I was giving. It's hard. why do i know that's important. How do so micra steps are really a way to get that. And that's as you had. We are breaking down into very small steps in the morning. We don't say they twenty minutes to meditate. That may seem overwhelming. We say take sixty seconds before you go to your phone. You can build up to your twenty minutes but if you say twenty minutes you may do it for the week and then you stop and it's hard to get back on the right and do you find that that sixty seconds it's shown in the science but tell me a little bit more about how such a short period of time can be so impactful because it feels like it's not enough time to get take make something. Yeah we have fallish neuroscience that shows that take sixty sixty to nine hundred packard's for that stress hormone cortisol to leave the body so if you look at our lives stresses unavoidable cumulative stress is avoidable. And that's really what we are focusing on having this what we call relief that sixty second resets throughout the day also between zooms our team so our Behavior change job thrive comes preloaded with the sixty second reset reset gratitude re said that breathing reset but also with the opportunity to create your own. That so car ran. Who is a trained chef. For example car nut love to see every sad from you of all the things you love to cook which probably will bring joy in the middle of a stressful day. Are michael or whatever it is that you love could be kids. Fads quotes newsy in sixty seconds. It can really an amazing me. Cheap was from the steam pathetic pathetic nervous system and remind us of what we love about our life carrying. You have an idea around this five minute fix so. This is a little longer than sixty seconds but not a lot. Tell me about the five minute fix. When i think about the five minute fix it that microsoft step taken to another level and i think about it as in any given moment personally or professionally we can pause and just assess just ask ourselves what's working what's not working in. What's the smallest thing we can give ourselves permission to adjust and what i love about. What arianna said referencing food. For example as a passion. Mean as i love to host dinner parties i love to prepare food for family and friends and i can spend three days preparing an elaborate dish or i can prepare an appetizer. For example that has three ingredients and takes five minutes to make an people will always prefer the simplest dish it fascinates and quarter In those moments in maybe we need you know five minutes snacks in the snack reset and i could share some tips. But what i've noticed is sixty seconds or a five minute. Fix feels doable. We can all do the doable. And i like this in observe it in the context of teams. What happens at work when we say could we take five minutes and give it back to everyone at the end of the meeting so we can have a break. Could we take five minutes to have someone share the sixty second reset. They're doing and how it's working mean. Everyone can participate in sixty seconds or the five minute fixed because the barrier to entry is low and it's easy to adjust the positive new diseases we build momentum right when it feels good and it's working we've created upside will be feel that upside or motivated to keep going and if it doesn't work as well we all feel that it's easy to give ourselves permission to adjust something and try something new when what we've invested is somewhere between sixty seconds for micro stepper reset our five six and that takes us to what companies can do you know so much of our lives are given to work. And we're so plugged in to our companies and company culture. And how that works are any you've talked about taking this time to seize the moment to rethink productivity which is really tied to companies. How do we think about that. What is that look like to rethink productivity and how should companies be organizing differently around that we have since really the industrial revolution. Been living under the collective delusion that in order to be really productive. We need to be on with on it. Really frankly goes back to becoming kind of enthralled with machine and the goal with machine is to minimize downtime and the same with software and debt. The truth is we know now from all the incredible science downtime for the human operating stage is a feature not a by so we need to bay i- redefinition of productivity on that fundamental fact. You know we all are so data driven. But we've got the data wrong when it comes to how to be really productive and we know that are diminishing return when we're always on would become mass productive less creative less than pathetic and all the additional kill you know just wrote a piece about the scale for a hybrid future because the truth is that all the skills that are more important now about empathy team building collaboration. I'm the first to disappear when we are running on empty when we depleted an exhausted. Productivity in this big way of building a new hybrid workplace has to include all the values and practices that almond humanity as well as performance yet. And i see that you're building a mental resilience. Dashboard at thrive right now and I'm curious what that's gonna look like. What's it gonna measure. Were always interested in dashboards at salesforce so tells a little more about the well. Actually it mark. Benny ups idea he and i were talking. And he said the next thing we need is a mental resilience dashboard and as we are moving to make the employee experience so central to whatever company is doing you know the way jails far of course made the customer success experience south central. The ampler e-experienced is going to be more and more central in terms of the bottom line and business metrics but the scituate doesn't have one dashboard to look at. Where are there people in terms of baron out in terms of productivity and thames over really and so we have building stash bar to be able to give nasdaq the hr department but these tweets and boards and immediate look into where the most valuable resource there. People are at any moment and be able to compare john reid john department with department and take steps to improve quite often still time you know. I love to think of everything in their preventive play and then five time thriving mind program on mental health that we launched a failed or is all based on identifying stress triggers before they become depression anxiety. It's obviously important where they become depression and anxiety but the earlier we can catch them and bring in micro steps to correct the better. you know. it's interesting. I wonder if we're heading coming out of the pandemic into a period. I think jamie diamond just released that letter that talked about. Hey things are going to boom. This is going to be a boom time coming up. Are we going to see a commensurate boom in happiness. Wellbeing d think that this will sustain or is this more of the moment now when we're thinking about it and as things change that it may become less of an imperative while it's have to our michael. That's a very good question you know. We have people who often change their lives after a at terrible health diagnoses. They're going to remission the call these promises how they're going to live their lives differently and wayne a few weeks or months that back to and how they're living before i think we need intercept each other. That's where community so key. At thrive i very important part of behavior change account ability but it and community days of france family to support each other otherwise we can go back to everything that has not worked. Everything that has led to. Where we were skyrocketing increases a diseases like diabetes and hypertension mental health crisis. So we don't want to go back. We want to go forward right. You know and karen you've written about the idea of teams thinking about individual ownership and outcomes both individually and within teams within organizations. How is this going to be different in a hybrid world. I think the way that teams are going to interact and the way that that's going to happen is in the way you're going to be heard is going to be really different. How should we be thinking about that. We have a perception. I think that we're holding that when people can't physically be together in person that we're getting a weaker signal about what people care about or how they're doing or what it takes to stay aligned. I think we need new tools and new language and a new mindset about how to stay aligned and to borrow phrase from arianna about how we can all thrive in this. Time and outcomes are such a powerful to anchor your team and the people that you work with in the expectation in in. What's possible with out getting so caught up in that productivity loop that says success is ding always on which theoretically means you're productive and the question. I would raise this to what end. I could spend all day like anyone. Listening could attending podcasts or responding to email messages or tending to social media posts responses. Is that an outcome that my boss might team is counting on me to deliver is that migrated value and when i think about stepping back and speaking in terms of outcomes what can come with that is revisiting the line on ownership when i think about bosses that i've had over time that have said things to me like you know. Were really trying to build a new way to listen to our customers. That's the outcome. We're going four. And i trust you to own that. Come back to me in a few weeks with a plan. you know. i feel empowered. I understand what i need to deliver. I know i can access the support if i needed and drawn people around me. But i'm clear that the outcome migrated value is what i'm going to deliver relative to that outcomes of the team for the company and for the customers and that's so critical along the way that arianna highlighted about the power of data and tools is for us to be able to hear from our employees on a real time basis about how they're doing not just waiting for that employee poll survey that might come out once a quarter or every six months. I think i've found in working with my team. During this time. That had to be much more intentional and deliberate about conversations expectations and clarity around that. Because you feel like you're out on an island a little bit and you're not gonna get those sort of hallway conversations and the stuff that happens in an office see just have to say. Here's exactly what. I want to talk about right now. Because the time is so defined. And i feel like that's been a positive overall in terms promoting the kind of conversations. You're talking about karen. Do you think that's going to continue in in terms of how managers relate to their teams. It's all about being an orchestrator of outcomes and also a connector right. People are at their best when they feel a sense of belonging and community. You know in our having the opportunity to try new things. And so when i think about what these manager employee and team touch points bike i think they're evolving right. This can be less about the immediate project. Update right that might be something that we can handle it a different way than in a meeting and really those times we come together as team or an opportunity to do some innovation to check in on. What's working what's not working. Maybe launched something new. And it's really just rethinking how we relate to one another at our most human level and how we can know an arianna. You've talked about companies needing to embed wellbeing as a foundation and to developing these human skills inside of organizations which is is so important in something we have thought a lot about. I feel like how can companies start to be more human lead and think about that where everybody in the organization is acting that way. You know there's a lot of information about people. Don't leave companies. They leave managers. They leave individual relationships. How can companies help set up each one of those relationships to be more humid lead and more successful. Well i think it starts with recognizing that wilde the pandemic has dramatically accelerate the digital transformation to the point where digital transformation are now table stakes. You can't be a thriving. Company who is out clear technology infrastructures workflows et cetera. Quad we realizing now is that you can't also be thriving company who is allowed foundation of human values. That are and batted in your culture. And that's much easier said than done and that there are a few elements that we bring to all the companies we're working with for example around big ding equator. That we call bay noon system of the company and it starts with a number one cultural value. Which is compassionate direct as one of the hardest things in companies is people have a hard time being direct a back channel grievances and complaints. And that is. The stocks exchange can do in a company because when people see on complaints and frustrations and grievances which are inevitable in any company. There is no opportunity to solve. The fell compassionate direct mr key that combination the connection between being and a culture of diversity and inclusion is also very important because diversity and inclusion. It's not just about numbers it's about a culture of belonging and to build a culture belonged in you have to start with people and you cannot mandate that and in order for people to be able to be more giving and martin pathetic. They need to have renewed and recharged themselves. They're not running on empty. So this action are now key. And that's why we are recognizing that the human i going to be the most important part off the new hybrid world. We're building the human skin. I have to become part of any reskilling whenever i read about reskilling rescaling skilling and it doesn't include skills of resilience kings of empathy. I feel that really missing the point if you are jazz statement people. It skills are coding skills. And you don't teach them how to deal with what constant unprecedented change that she And that's continuing. How would be with obstacles. How deal with the uncertainty of our times. It's going to be very hard to be. The most productive and the healthier employees bet you need to create a thriving culture right. I mean i think if you're thinking about skills in that way it's taking it back to industrial revolution type thinking you know. This is how you operate this machine and need to produce this many widgets in this much time. That technology and automation is going to take care of a lot of that. And and i think it's going to be so much about how we relate to each other and how we can help each other be successful. And i think this idea between taking it all the way down to an individual relationship between team members or manager and a team member and expanding that through a whole company culture is fascinating and is that sort of where thrive is living right now in trying to break it down all the way to that level that goes across the whole company. Quarter the idea. Yeah absolutely and i think the whole companies that very important. We're working with walmart for example who there to find two million associates. Both those who have the privilege to be able to work from home right now but also who the majority who are frontline workers who i came from stores. I think this whole wellbeing conversation has to be expanded to include worker in stores workers in factories and this is going to be also very important element of our healthcare conversation because we have found that tweeted micro steps this better choices that we bring through the up to the star associates at walmart. We have had medical resigns like reversing diabetes people no longer having to take a hypertension medication. Even though everything we're doing is behavioral intervention so. I think that's really what we're learning that a lot of them diseases that are plaguing at the moment like diabetes and hypertension our lifestyle diseases and being able to deal with stress and burnout is going to have a huge impact on these trajectories and turning that around karen we were talking prior to the interview about being heard and contributing in this hybrid environment. Which is is going to be different and and challenging. Tell us a little bit more about the idea of how to get your attention across and how to send that message back to management or to your colleagues in this environment for just like we've been talking about kind of the accountability partner as being key to a lifestyle change. Like arianna was sharing earlier. I think about what happens when we tap into our skill to sort of co create and share our voices together and sometimes it can be a little bit frightening right. We get a little bit stuck when we think about speaking up for something that's important to us or saying something that we feel might be countered to the status quo. And you know a couple of things. I think make a really big difference. First of all is managers asking some new questions like who have. We not heard from yet. What might be missing from this conversation right inviting people to have an opportunity to speak up. I think this is also where the tools are so powerful right the opportunity to hear from people not just in a live team meeting or conversation or in a one on one but tapping into some of those tools and collaborative documents. So that we're making space for everybody to have an opportunity to be heard and seen. And then i think the extension of what we've been talking about is is all about the power of choice right deciding to speak up and advocate for. What we need is a choice right. Designing what mixture of what we're gonna allow with people being in the office or working from or you know what's going to happen with the lifestyle changes that were choosing to be well. Those are choices and those choices exist in this present moment not in the way we used to do things or punishing ourselves for getting into the place of not being well to begin with which happened so often and not worrying about the future but really working together right now to create choices and assess. What's the best choice that we can make individually and collectively. That moves us toward either the outcome. Perhaps we're trying to deliver his business or the outcome. We're trying to realize as human beings right to live well and work well and do well. There's that moment when you feel like okay. I can contribute to this conversation. Maybe you're sitting in a conference room and you will be in the future or you're on zoom call but you're just unsure and you're feeling a little bit unsure about putting yourself out there. I love this idea of taking it in the form of a question and asking for others input to bring in those ideas and i think that speaks so much to the empathy there on the active listening of being able to take your idea. Put it in the form of a question. Put it out there and let others respond. That's gonna move things forward. So that's a great tip. Well thanks so much for joining us. Karen and arianna. I hope we can do this again. Soon funny thank you son lives. Thank you mike. Thank you karen gregory. That was arianna huffington. Bestselling author founder of the huffington.

Ep. 682 - Status Quo Joe

"It is inauguration day. I'm sorry to say. And i'm sorry for a number of reasons not the least of which is certainly now. We're going to see a lot of violence from those insurrectionist. Terroristic republicans who just a few weeks ago committed an unprecedented shocking historic coup-d'etat. Type act of violence at the capitol. I i can only imagine that as a matter of unprecedented historic unprecedented violence. We're going to see that kind of awful terrible stuff. Today at the inauguration about everyone gathered here in washington today came to celebrate. President trump's inauguration protesters lying part of the parade route at in some parts of the capital neighbor confrontations with police the anger reaching a boiling point in the nation's capital after president trump took the oath of office police in riot gear facing off against the protestors just six blocks from the inaugural parade of leaching pepper spray concussion grenades all to disperse the crowd burning cars and smashed windows a small group of protesters dressed in black. Their faces covered armed with hammers and bricks facing off with thousands of officers on site many in riot gear confronting them with flashbang grenades and pepper spray. Before the swearing in ceremony even began. Protesters tried to block. Checkpoint entrances during president trump's speech. Several demonstrators were escorted out of the area. Several officers injured during the protest. Today and one hundred people arrested more than one hundred people arrested for things like setting cars on fire stores on fire assaulting countless people. That was the last one now. Wasn't this one. That's so weird. that was at the inauguration of president trump. And we're not talking about that today because no one cares about political violence or lawlessness or any other insanity when it comes from the left because that's just the status quo and if joe biden's inauguration means anything it means a return to normalcy returned to decadent degraded normalcy. I'm michael knowles. This the michael knowles show back to the show. My favorite comment from last week was from joe man who was referring to the daily wire movie which just came out. He said without even watching. You already know that run. Hide fight is good since the audience gave it a ninety eight and the leftist critics gave it a seventeen on rotten tomatoes. That is true. That is one of the keys to it. the left Sort of critical. Hollywood establishment is furious about this movie but the audience to really like it so thanks everyone for coming out hanging out with us. I guess that might have been the last time. We were all hanging out together. Because i took a couple of days off. You know. I am genuinely very very sad about president. Trump's leaving office you know and There are a number of this For this but i wonder if it is. I really want to be prepared You always want to be prepared for the worst things that can happen. And but luckily i m prepared. And that's because i have a ready wise ready. Wise makes being prepared simple and affordable orderonline and have nutritious meals shipped directly to your doorstep ready. Wise products are proudly made in the usa.

The president trump is leaving office. It's been so fun. It has been the most fun. Political experience of my life that i've ever lived through a conservatives. I think of accomplished more certainly than we've accomplished in my life and probably for many decades before that so i'm genuinely very sad on inauguration day however i'm not that said generally because the reason i've been out the past couple of days just had a kid i was you. I thank everybody for sending in the well wishes my My son has now already. Mastered expressions of bemused dismay and droll self-satisfaction. I posted some of these photos over the weekend. That means that he now has mastered the entire breadth of conservative emotions. The that's pretty much it. That's pretty much all you can get to So we're all very excited about that. It is helping to temper our sadness. That president kafi is leaving office which is genuinely sad thing we can now say we have at least one new conservative american future voter of for good things on on this earth and in this country one new conservative american soon to be joined by. I'm a far from frayed. To say eleven million new overwhelmingly left-wing americans. So you see one thing. I was really happy about with the birth of my son. Is that obviously many many things very happy about but not the least of which was he is not a biden. Baby you see. He was due on the eighteenth for a first child. It's it's typical for the kid. Become later than the due date. I thought no biden becomes president on the twentieth. This is going to be a biden baby. He's going to miss out on all the fun but he got in on time so he got in two days before the biden presidency and We're very excited for that All all the more reason that i haven't slept in a few days. I fall asleep at the desk today. That's you know perfectly fine. Just have someone come in and poke me. Because we're we're gonna fall asleep. Unfortunately not not today. We're gonna fall asleep for the next four years and it's not going to be because everything is perfectly fine in hunky dory. It's because it's going to go back to the radical status quo that we had in effect before trump came into office before trump came into office. Things were happening very very quickly. I mean just just to give you a quick example. We went from a on the issue of same sex marriage. Whatever your views on same sex marriage that's actually not my point right now you had one definition more or less of marriage for all of human history then with burger fell at the insistence of obama. You had a fundamental redefinition of marriage and then a year after that you had the apparently fundamental right for men to go use the women's bathroom and for men to go into to use the the girls changing room at the public pool. That's how that's how quickly this sort of thing can accelerate. When barack obama ran for president two thousand eight key opposed gay marriage in in very strong terms. Hillary clinton to right they said this was marriage is a sacred union between a man and a woman and they have no intent on over overturning it then obama in two thousand twelve. It wasn't until right around the second term that he changes his view on that within a couple of years. You now have this sort of fundamental rights transgenderism and all of these kind of radical sexual ideologies. The acceleration was really really quick. We went from barack obama saying that it would be unconstitutional to give at executive amnesty. Just to the dreamers right in the dreamers. Actually there now. Oldest forty four years old but at least the image of the dreamers is that they're supposed to be like six years old and they're really cute and you know their parents brought them over and it's not their fault and we gotta give them amnesty. We went from. Barack obama saying that would be unconstitutional to it's so f- in effect that even donald trump can't overturn it. He tried court. Shut it down now. Were at the place where joe biden says. We're going to give amnesty to eleven. Million people path to citizenship future democratic voters and that and that is just a fact by the way i i'm not i'm hoping that somehow these voters will become conservative. Republicans i hope reagan's right when he says that a lot of these voters are republicans they just don't know it yet but the the public opinion polls don't really bear it out it would seem that that Recent immigrants from latin america identify with the democratic party. Overwhelmingly you're talking about eighty percent plus and of course the reason why democrats are so keen on on pushing for amnesty. That's a radical policy right. But we don't we don't feel like it's radical because we're like the we're like the frog and the hot water we as things continue to heat up and heat up and get more radical and more radical. We're just not paying attention to it. And there is the full force of the media. Higher education lower education for that matter. Big tack specially now big tech. We'll get to that in a second Bureaucracy everybody is pushing for it and so ordinary americans who have institutional power and certainly have zero institutional power now that trump is leaving. they're going to look up and say wait a second what what is happening. You're you're going to legalize eleven million people and then you're going to upend the voting system or you're going to keep the ended voting system that we had in two thousand twenty at this doesn't this doesn't look good guys and there's not going to be very much to do about it because the entire way to the establishment is behind the way we know about this eleven million illegal alien policy by the way is because it's being reported on by the mainstream media and this brings me to one point that i think people sometimes forget when we've got a republican administration and then we have a democratic administration. We beat up on the meal the time where we say. These reports are unfounded there ridiculous. It's the fake news. don't believe it. So why should i believe a report from whether it's the new york times or nbc. Or whoever that says that biden's going to legalize eleven million. That's what's being talked about when the media report on a democratic policy that is fundamentally different thing than when the media report on a republican policy and the reason for that is that the media are the democrats and the democrats are the media whereas when it comes to the republicans they are adversaries right. The republicans hate the media the media hate the republicans so the media are always looking to try to antagonize the republicans and they don't have particularly good sources whereas with the democrats. They do so when something like this is being leaked. You know it's being leaked by the administration you know. They're floating out there to see what the reaction is and you know they. They know that they're gonna get good press coverage so it's it is going to be more reliable. You're actually going to have to change how you look at the media from where you have been looking at them for the past four years and the other the other evidence of radicalism. You don't even need to look to the new york times for you. Don't even need to look to nbc or washington post because some of these nominees are already coming up and they are really really radical and they're radical on matters of education and they're radical on matters of public health certainly public health is become the big issue twenty twenty and joe biden has an historic public health nominee which will get to probably get censored if we even talk about it. But we're going have to talk about it anyway. And they are radical specifically on this issue of immigration. And maybe the most surprising thing you're gonna see even just in the next. Few weeks is not that you can believe the media a little bit more when they report on democrat policies because the media based press secretary's one of the most shocking things is that Heretofore squishy republicans are going to seem to grow a backbone. They're going to seem to grow a spine even guides. Like i can't believe. I'm saying this guys like mitt. Romney are about to seem like strong tough conservatives who want to defend the country and don't want amnesty not only. Are you going to see if you're already seeing a huge huge surprise you know.

Didn't knowles in the. How did you hear about us box so that they know that we sent you. You know how much i love them. Go check out. Rock auto mitt romney mitt mitt romney the most liberal republican in the senate certainly in the top three just came out to grill the joe biden department of homeland security nominee He came out because the is going to be dealing with caravans of people that are coming up to. The southern border is going to be dealing with a lot of immigration issues and mitt wants to know. I can't believe i'm saying that he wants to know if they're gonna turn those immigrants away or if they're gonna flip the law. What is your intention with. Regards to that caravan That is coming to our our border as your intention to allow them to come into the country. Will they be stopped. What what's the what's the plan senator. We are a nation of immigrants and are also a nation of laws. And i intend to apply the law in the execution of my responsibilities as the secretary of homeland security. Should i have that privilege. I understand that. And what does that mean in this in. This regard is that be that they will be interdicted and rejected from coming into the country. Evaluated one by one. What's the what's the plan senator When people present themselves at our border we apply the laws of our nation to determine whether they qualify for relief under our humanitarian laws. Or whether they don't kind of uncertain there g you don't say i'm it i actually got to tell you i appreciated this. Grilling that he gave him. The nominee is alex. Alejandro my orcas. He's obviously going to give all of these people. Amnesty his boss. Joe biden is saying i want to give amnesty to eleven million people and then mitt romney is coming in. You're probably very confused. You're saying why is mitt the squishy squishy in the senate. Why is he trying to fight against illegal immigration. A couple of reasons. One this is. This is like the top level reason you know the the most obvious is maybe mitt is thinking about running for president again. I think very few people would expect him to win. And probably a few people even would expect him to run but the guy has run for president on a number of occasions he got the nomination one time after the trump era things are going to change. Maybe romney thinks there's going to be a way for him to recapture the kind of squishy moderate route or something. So maybe that's it. But i think it's actually deeper than that. I think the reason that Romney is doing. This sort of thing is because there's no longer a republican president. So it's not just this this grilling here. Romney is actually having a moment. You'll recall during the reporting from the capitol hill riot. There was a report out that mitt romney turns to ted cruz and said are you happy with this ted or you happy with what you've done something like that different versions of this going around the internet. Is it turn out. I have no idea. But this was being reported in real time. And it obviously fits with romney's character as a squishy guy who who didn't want trump to be president wanted to be president. Wanted to move on. But now cnn is reporting cnn. Manu raju is reporting that Mitt romney told him that crews hawley should not be punished in any way for objecting to the electoral certification on january six so the democrats want want crews in hawley to be booted out of the senate or at least censured for raising objections to the electoral vote. Because of the irregularities let's call them in the twenty twenty election. Romney just came out and i. I don't do a very good mitt romney but but he just came in and said i think they raised. They raised questions which are legitimate within the senate not something i supported but i think i think they're entitled to raise those points i. It's a very bad mitt. Romney impression so if you want to do a mitt romney it sort of like you have to do a reagan. But then make it lamer and i don. I haven't haven't succeeded at it and probably never will the point. He's making though is very good. Because i agree with that. I can't believe i'm saying. I agree with mitt romney especially on an issue like this he saying of course crews and holly had the right to raise those objections they are legitimate objections and we're not going kick a senator out for pursuing legal process. Excuse me sir. What has happened to mitt romney. Have you done. Who are you imposter. And what have you done with senator romney on the one hand great. I'm glad that he's having this moment. I'm glad he's been more conservative. I'm glad he's going to grow people's burnt gonna do very much but okay wonderful on the other hand. This is frustrating because of course mitt. Romney is good now. Of course he saying the right things now and doing the right things now and behaving in the right way now because he's about to be in the minority and mitt romney and republicans like mitt. Romney were built in some factory at establishment. Gop headquarters to be in the minority. They're meant to lose with dignity they're meant to put up a big fight and put up a big show but not actually do anything you know when it would have mattered would have mattered under the trump administration. That's when it would have mattered. Put up a big fight. And there are lots of people up up to and including the president perhaps could have done more best president of my lifetime but sure there were missed. Opportunities and some unforced errors and lot. Lots of problems. Okay fine where were you. Where were all of the real tough sounding conservatives when it mattered when it could have mattered. You are all fighting the republican presidential administration. And now that it's nice and safe and you don't need to risk anything and you know that nothing you say is gonna matter then you can mouth off and say oh good. I'm going to be a big tough guy now. And i'm going to support the conservatives and i i hate illegal immigration and yeah i totally support cruz and all okay fine. I'll take that over. Nothing i take that over romney completely defecting to the democrats. but it's week saw skies. When when hillary got the nomination and trump got the nomination in two thousand sixteen be conservative. humorist. pj o'rourke. who i've always really enjoyed. Pg or works writing. He came out and he he endorsed hillary clinton and he said i endorse hillary clinton and all of her evil works and oliver empty promises. He said she's really really bad. But she's bad within normal boundaries and it was it was a actually a brilliant because it explains what a lot of people thought they said. I hate hillary but hillary's normal you know trump is not normal so i prefer the devil. I know to the devil that i don't. We're going back into normal and mitt romney mouthing off when it doesn't matter that's normal and pretending to care about illegal immigration for a lot of republicans when they don't really care and they're actually secretly sort of supportive of it. That's normal and not caring about abortion raising a big ruckus about abortion. But then not being able to do anything about it. That's normal and the radicalism that we're about to see at the border and in education and in health policy all of that is actually normal within the boundaries of our politics. The problem is our politics has gotten so completely insane. That in two thousand sixteen people voted for this guy named donald trump who is a complete outsider to the elective office and national political scene. But he talked like a normal person in his views were ordinary views totally commonsense. Yes secure the border yet. Defend america put america before other countries when you're crafting a national policy yet. Make american workers get a decent get a decent wage slave labor in china right that that that donald trump would appeal to ordinary people. This like eccentric new york shows you how crazy the political scene has gotten. But now we're back to normal and normal is really really radical. we've got radical nominees. We talked a little bit last week about this. Radical floated nominee for the department of justice is a civil rights division. This is an enormous this after the civil rights act sort of civil rights offices took on enormous power and influence the the doj civil rights. Division has a lot of power in this country. And the person that joe biden is reportedly going to nominate for it his written the craziest kookiest most radical racist sort of things Some of which have come back from her days at harvard. She had these theories that melanin is what gives people mental physical and spiritual power and. It's why black. People are mentally spiritually and physically superior to white people and white people part of the way the brain functions. Involved this melanin. And that's why white people are dumb or something and black people really smart. Well this kind of racialist nonsense that you'd seen out of the radical left in the seventies and eighties. I'm i'm thinking of wacky professors leonard jeffries who talks about how black people are the sun. People in white people are the ice people. I'm thinking of guys today like nick. Cannon remember the actor nick cannon got in trouble because he said melanin is what gives people their power and white people are like savages. Well the the biden nominee or reported nominee for this very powerful posted. The doj civil rights held these theories at one time and may well hold those theories today. That's completely insane right. But it's insane within normal boundaries because of how wacky or boundaries have gotten and it's not just at the doj it's also at the education department it's also at health and human services which is the perhaps wacky as one of all before we get to that. Last thursday was a very day for the daily wire. We made our entrance into entertainment content with our first feature film. Run hide fight a runoff fight. Who is really terrific. I got screen the movie when we were considering acquiring it and i thought wow man. This is pretty cool. What a great way to open up our our entertainment portion of the daily wire. We'll have a new movie right in the new year. This was a movie that it did well at venice film festival. But it wasn't totally politically correct. It's not a conservative propaganda. Movie by any means. It just has conservative values in it. Was it broke a few politically correct rules. And so it couldn't get distribution. We thought our we'll distribute it if you missed it head on over to daily wire where you can stream it on demand from our website mobile or streaming apps on apple. Tv and roku if you're not a member yet what are you doing. Use promo code r h f for those of. You were a little slow this morning. Because maybe i've slept in a few days like me. That is that's renai fight. You will get twenty five percent off and is h f for twenty five percent off head on over the daily wire dot com. We'll be right back with a lot more So joe biden's reported nominee for this very important post in the doj holds a ton of extremely racist ugly views similar us being held. Apparently by joe biden's choice for deputy educa- education secretary so joe biden announced that he wanted to pick The san diego unified school district. Superintendent cindy martin for deputy secretary of education deputy secretary of education. What what does the education department even do. I guess not all they don't. They're not empowered to do all that much by law or there's obviously doesn't appear anywhere in the constitution but they do have quite a lot of power to craft the direction of curriculum the united states. One way they do. This is through things like dear colleague. Letters look basically strong recommendations from the federal government that you know if you wanna keep getting your money if you wanna keep getting all these goodies from the federal government. You have to do what we want you to do. On various sort of social engineering policies of the famous dear colleague letter from the obama administration had to do with transgender ideology will hear this person who biden wants for deputy education secretary l. holds very racist views. She's a white lady but she holds these very sort of What do you call it. i guess black racialist views the same kinds of things that we have just been talking about so she believes that schools quote spirit murder black children and wh- white teachers should should undergo quote anti-racist therapy anti-racist therapy so you've got now the announced biden pick for deputy education secretary calling for the reprogramming only of white teachers who are not anti-racist enough meaning a they could be not racist but that's not enough you've got to be antiracist meaning you've got to be racist and the teachers are are not Focused enough on how terrible the scourge of white supremacy as an schools quote spirit murder black children river that means and so they've got to go to reeducation camps that's not even just being reported that has been announced moving over to the department of health and human services. I've got to be very careful with this one. Because i think we could all be censored for this and there were major calls right now for conservatives to be censored so i'm just going to present the facts. Okay and you tell me something. Seems a little strange. Joe biden has selected the pennsylvania health secretary. Dr rachel levine. To be assistant secretary of health and human services. Dr rachel levine that That was not his given name when he was born. A dr. rachel. Levine is a man who thinks that he's a woman He's being nominated to be the assistant secretary of health and human services a man who is under the impression that he is a woman in some deep metaphysical way that his true identity is a woman even though all of the characteristics that he has our man manly masculine He is now to be the assistant secretary of health and human services. Does that seem a little strange to you. That seems a little strange to me. I know i don't want to step out of line. I don't want to Seems a little strange doesn't it but it doesn't but it doesn't. It only seems strange to people with even a modicum of common sense left because we are back into the normal scope of this liberal political regime and the normal kinds of politics that we see here. That's normal compared to objective standards. That's not normal compared to historical norms back decades and decades but it is normal today and what is also about to be normal. I mean i've. I'm joking a little bit as i'm tiptoeing around this issue. What strange about this that. A man and address who believes himself to be a woman is assistant health secretary. I'm sort of joking. I tiptoe around it but there's a lot of truth to it. Which is that. We are now at a place. Where if you come out and say a man is not a woman and a woman is not a man and a man can't magically become a woman by wishing it so and putting address on you will face professional consequences for it. You will face social consequences for it. You can currently be kicked off of social media. If you do it in a specific way which i hope my elaborate choreography here has allowed me to walk around but you you cannot say that you feel as though you're the last sane person on earth when you scream to the wind and say a man is not a woman and a woman is not a man and there's actually such a thing as sexual difference but that that's over because now we're headed back into the biden administration. Which is it's the same thing as the obama administration which is just kind of the same thing as the establishment left by the way what you're going to hear specifically with regard to rachel levine's appointment you're going to hear that. Oh no this has nothing to do with him being a transgender person. This is just because he's so qualified and he's just the best pick for the job. I don't think that that is likely to be true. Here's why there is a quote from robin gonzalez. The victory institute which i suppose. Lgbtq sort of lobby says quote. I think there is a value and giving visibility to doctors like doctor levin who are kind of unique in their field. Not just because of their demographics and who they are but also because of their expertise. We also know that when people know. Lgbtq people it makes them more open to supporting our equality so he. He made three arguments here. He made three three reasons as to. Why rachel levine. Should get this job. It's good to give visibility to doctors like levin visibility. What does that mean means Because he's a man who thinks he's a woman not just because of their demographics but also because of their expertise. Okay so he's saying it's not just because he's transgender. It's because he is really expert at something what we don't know he doesn't specify how that expertise is completely unique and has nothing to do with the gender thing but he's so much more expert than anyone else in the field are. He doesn't explain that. And then the third one is. It's good when people see. Lgbtq people's lgbtq is when you lump in everybody so a man who comes and says i'm a guy i'm attracted to other men that is now supposed to be considered part and parcel of the same thing as a man who says i am a woman right there obviously not the same thing and they actually contradict one another but one is of sexual desire which anybody can understand and say yeah. We people have sexual desires. You're not pretending that by biology and reality is different than it is. You're saying i'm a man. I have this sort of unusual sexual desire but you know a bunch of people. I have a two and that's the way it is completely different than a man saying hi Because you might be confused looking at me and all my physical traits. I want you to know objective. Reality is not true. You shouldn't believe your lying. is i. m a man actually a totally different things and of course we've talked about this on this show before but if you're if you're going to promote lgbtq altogether you're going to run into a problem which is that the kind of modern concept of homosexuality is based on this idea that there are men and there are women and homosexuals are men who are attracted to other men and women who are attracted other women. And you're you know it goes along with matas like we're born this way you know. And you can't change who you are and sexual orientation is not changeable. Okay fun totally got it. You cannot then also say that there is no such thing as sacks and that all of these things are changeable and not only sexual desire changeable but but my sex itself is changeable. So i can become a man i. I can be a man of pretend that i'm a woman and then it really become a woman can't have all of those things at once. But you can these you can i. Actually i actually explain how this This ideology has arisen in my upcoming book. I've never plugged a book on this show. That had any words in it. But i can do this now because in addition to this kind of crazy forty eight hours of had with My wife going into labor and kid coming and it was a very long labor and so we were awful time. By an active either cosmic poetry or cosmic sadism. My baby and my book were both due on the same day. I had to get this manuscript into the publisher and it's got a lot of words it turns out it's harder to write books with words but the book is available for preorder announced called speechless. Controlling words controlling minds and it's a history of political correctness has been completely misunderstood for decades. And it's why we've completely lost and that's why now. The realm of normal politics is so radically left wing. Because we haven't fought back against that but what political correctness does fundamentally is. It replaces traditional moral codes with new speech codes. That's that's the main shift that happens with political correctness and political correctness thereby attempts to redefine reality. But it's a it's a purely negative mission. And what i mean by that is the the radical left i don't think the radical left particularly cares about homosexuals and i don't think they particularly care about people who are confused about their sex. I think they are using these groups as a means of destroying the old order so if you can destroy the old order with one argument used that if you're gonna destroy the old order with the opposite argument you'll use that but either way what you're trying to do is destroy the old set of standards and this is why this is why the tactics have changed over the years. This a lot of it comes back to align from karl marx. Actually which is at that mark set out to a to exert the ruthless criticism of all that exists from that you get familiar terms critical theory right From these kind of western marxists who later on came and applied marks more to cultural matters and kind of melted them with freud. And anyway go you go. Read the book to understand a little tiny bit of this But it is it is purely negative and it's going to accelerate and you're already seeing it accelerate in real time all of these kind of radical picks from the biden administration and it has cultural effects. Too i just saw this on this question gender ideology one of the silliest headlines i've seen in a long time in the new york post twenty-three-year-old topples king with gender neutral card deck. And it's this gal here you know. And she's got this new deck of cards and she was very upset that in a traditional deck of cards. When you're most games. I guess what you're playing. The king is more valuable than the queen. We cannot have this. this is very terrible right because that's patriarchal or something. This girl she got she got a news article out of this in a major publication. She just made a deck of cards and replaced. Jack queen king with bronze silver gold. Who's the ace. I don't know that's what she did. Topples the king now. Faith more drew's daughter. Faith made very good point the other day when this article came out. Which is if you topple the king. Don't you topple the queen to when this cow made. Her new deck of cards seems like such a frivolous matters to the culture. Because because we're we're mimicking this or rather. She is mimicking the culture and she is mimicking the political regime. We're doing this on so many issues when you get rid of if you want to topple the king and you think you're going to do that by getting rid of any sort of gendered cards you're also toppling. The queen there is no queen in this gal's deck of cards modern gender ideologues. You'll notice it went very quickly from you. See the acceleration. It went very quickly from boys can become girls and girls can become boys to something called non binary or gender queer or non gendered or whatever. They like fifty different versions of this. Not people saying. I'm one sex or the other but saying there is no sex there is no such thing as sex. I'm neither and what that does to use a popular term from the left is it erases women. There are no women now. You might say well. At least the women. Arnold ranked lower in the deck of cards than the men. Okay fine but if that's a victory it's a pure victory because there are no women left anymore because the minute that you assert that there are women that there such a thing as men and women well if those are distinct categories that means there were differences. They're going to be some things that men are better at and they're going to be some things. The women are better at. I've been in the delivery ward of a hospital for two days. I understand there are some things that women are better at. I understand that very well. They're going to be some ways in which men are stronger. They're gonna be some ways in which women are stronger. There were are going. you won't be identical. This was people would have laughed at you if you had made this point anytime from the beginning of civilization even earlier than that to about five or ten years ago. We would've laughed at you if you if you made the statement men and women are different as though it were some grand any now that is politically incorrect speech. And they're probably going to censor people who try to say that sort of thing. That's the new normal. We've been talking about the new normal with the masks and the lockdown. Well that's part of it but the new normal is much broader much more radical than any of that sort of thing and all this on the day we have to say farewell to the trump's. Melania trump came out. She gave a farewell address. I was very sad to see this. I love melania trump. She is the most elegant first lady we've ever had she makes everyone's harka pitter-patter my wife will send me videos of melania speaking just said oh michael. Oh my gosh my heart's melting. You know. she just walks actually so composed so she said something that i think it's it's worth thinking about as we enter the biden administration. Not because it's any groundbreaking statement not because it's even objectively true. But because it describes the current political situation malania trump says be passionate in everything you do in the midst of hardship. We have seen the best of america. Shine through students have made cards and delivered groceries to our senior citizens deters have worked twice as hard to keep our children. Learning families have come together to provide supplies comfort and france. Cheap to those in need. Be passionate in everything you do but remember that violence is never the answer and will never be justified. Okay objectively. what she's saying is not true right even she says violence is never the answer. Wealth violence was the answer In war wasn't it when war is declared on us certainly would all say the answer to that. It's violence not just a rollover. Right was violence the answer in world war two. That seems to be the only historical reference point that anybody has. Everyone's always comparing everyone else. Vitamin nazis or whatever. But okay let's use. It was violence the answering the world. War two Probably was right someone. Some madman is trying to conquer the whole world. Violence is the answer to that. It's never justify note is justified Saint thomas quietness and many many other thinkers have discussed when it is justified. I think what melania saying here is that unjust violence is not justified. You know sort of vigilantism or riots everywhere or looting or whatever the of course. That's not justified. That's not justified at all. And probably this is a reference to the capitol hill riot. Sure it should also be a reference to be fair enough and then she says be passionate and everything you do. well there's some places where you know little detachment is fine too. But i i don't mean to nitpick the first lady's speech because i think there's actually some real wisdom in here what we have had if nothing else for the past. Four years is passion. It's why an unusual coalition voters came together and sent trump to washington in the first place. It's why people had so much fun or the last four years is we had passion and it seemed like for the first time in my life we had passion from the the white house obama in a way you know had a little bit of passion but obama with speeding things up a little bit of weight but it was all still the same kind of liberal establishment and maybe clinton bill clinton advance that little more slowly and bush a little more slowly. An obama a little more quickly but it was the same thing was all the exact same thing. It's all the same kind of platitudes and the same kind of dull bureaucratic technocratic language. And then trump comes in like a wrecking ball and it really fired a lot of us up and we thought that was actually some hope that we can avoid this kind of bizarre insane ugly anti-american technical malays and we got that with trump and now trump's leaving it's very sad trump giving his farewell address wishing joe biden. Well my fellow americans four years ago. We launched a great national effort to rebuild our country to renew it spirit and to restore the allegiance of this government to its citizens. In short we embarked on a mission to make america great again for all americans as i conclude my term as the forty fifth president of the united states. I stand before you truly proud of what we have achieved together. We did what we came here to do. And so much more. This week we inaugurate a new administration and pray for its success. In keeping america safe and prosperous we extend our best wishes and we also want them to have luck a very important word. so he's going out on a sort of nice gracious note. Okay be biden's coming in. We've accomplished all. We wanted to and much much more there some things. Obviously the trump administration didn't accomplish. But i will say i without a doubt his favorite president of my lifetime and and he he talked about the same sort of thing. We've been talking about all day. This doesn't meet louis. Cut across into our politics the trumpet. The trump administration was unique in our normal political resume. He says it's not about left to right. It's about doing good for the american people together with millions of hardworking patriots across this land. We built the greatest political movement in the history of our country. We also built the greatest economy in the history of the world. It was about america first because we all wanted to make america great again. We restored the principle that a nation exists to serve as citizens. Our agenda was not about right or left. It wasn't about republican or democrat but about the good of a nation and that means the whole nation with the support and prayers of the american people. We achieve more than anyone thought possible. Nobody thought we could even come close. Usually don't like this rhetoric. It's not about left. it's not about right. It's not red america. Blue america right obama's said similar things but the reason. I don't love that even the country over party or whatever these other slogans because you join a political party to help your country the idea. This party is going to help the country more someone join that and support it. So i think it's a little bit of a false dichotomy and the trump administration's been generally very right wing with some exceptions but it is worth pointing out. He was a little different. He wasn't the usual republican. He cracked that status quo for a little bit. In part of cracking it was he won. He got a lot of things accomplished lease the first time and we had a pretty strange twenty twenty pretty strange november of two thousand twenty. And that's that's the end of the term farewell to at the best president of my lifetime. I hope president trump stays around voice and politics very sorry to see joe biden inaugurated today. But hey thanks for the memories and we've got a lot to look forward to. I got a new kid. We got things to be happy about. will afford to see you all tomorrow in the meantime. I'm michael knowles.
