America's Mass Psychosis of FEAR with Psychiatrist Mark McDonald
"Mass formation psychosis is a neologism that was coined by doctor Robert Malone that has been largely repeated recently in the news, but what he's actually trying to say is mass delusional psychosis, which is a term that I actually began using almost two years ago in fall of 2020. It's also a pick up off of doctor Matthias Desmond's phrase, mass formation, which means mass psychosis, which describes the exact same thing, which is an entire society of people, all at the same time, essentially losing their rational faculties and following a fixed false belief, such as we're all going to die of the virus and we can survive only if we stay at home wear masks and stop working and stop going to school. That is the mass solutional psychosis of 2020 through to today. What are the where does it
Spotify Removes Neil Young's Music After Complaints About Joe Rogan
"And just to give you one more example of how crazy this has gotten, this cancel culture let's shut up and suppress and censor conservative voices. The latest example, and this one has the twist at the end though, is you probably heard about Neil Young. Legendary classic rocker Neil Young. Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, of course, a huge solo career. 76 year old musician far left has his music as almost every musician does on Spotify. Spotify is the company and the platform that hosts the Joe Rogan podcast, the Joe Rogan experience Joe Rogan is easily the podcast king of America. Number one by a mile in terms of listenership and viewership of his podcast, he, by the way, hosted an interview with the same doctor Robert Malone that I just played the clip of before the break. And it just, it pretty much blew up the Internet. And the left went crazy because he gave this massive platform to doctor Robert Malone, the inventor of the mRNA vaccine. Well, that led Neil Young, to issue an ultimatum to Spotify. Said you removed the Joe Rogan experience, him and his conservative science that he's using to battle the Doctor Fauci's of the world. You either remove him from the platform Spotify or you take all of my music off of there. You can have Rogan or young but not both. Neil Young declared. This would be a great place for a record scratch because it took about 0.2 seconds for Spotify to say see ya. Spotify pulls Neil Young's music after artist objects to Joe Rogan, Neil Young is now expected to lose 60% of his streaming revenue by losing his catalog off of the Spotify platform. So he tried to get Joe

Robert Wilkie on Biden's Latest Ukraine Blunder
"As secretary Robert wilkie. Welcome back to America first. So we as usual, we could talk for hours. Let's just have your reaction to what the incumbents said about a Russia and a Ukraine play cut. Better. And so I think what you're going to see is that Russia will be held accountable. If it invades, and it depends on what it does. It's one thing if it's a minor incursion and then we end up having to fight about what to do and not do it. The president of the Ukraine has been making public statements. He says there is no such thing as a minor incursion. Is he overreacting how much of a blander could this be? Well, it is on par for this president. It's on par for 50 years of being wrong about every major national security issue facing us. And I thought about just how wrong it was this morning when this administration refuses to supply the Ukrainians with weapons that can make colonel Putin's decision a little more difficult. And now they've bullied Estonia Latvian Lithuania into sending missiles to Ukraine. So now these three lilliputian NATO members should be doing the job of protecting you. Absolutely. Absolutely. And that's what this has come
Jessie Jane Duff on the Midterms and Biden's Afghanistan Disaster
A Look Back at Biden's Disastrous First Year With Jessie Jane Duff
"Can follow her right now Jesse Jane Duff if it's got 230,000 followers. You've got the right one, not only the gunnery sergeant. She is the former coach F of veterans for Trump and a colleague of mine on newsmax. Great to have you back. I'm so excited to be back. I love being in studio with you. So whenever I come into town, I'm pinging your team and I'm like, I'm here, I'm here. We are delighted the energy's always better when you're physically in studio, especially in this age of zoom and Skype. Enough of that, just because of the China virus, we gotta talk military got to talk about the minor incursion invitation that Biden gave to Russia and to Putin. But first, let's just let's just talk about the big picture. I did a kind of spontaneous monologue to open this show about the last 12 months of the Biden regime. Give us your take. Let's get your balance sheet of the year of what was that movie the year of living dangerously? This is the year of living with senility. Highest inflation rate in 40 years. That kind of sums up a good stop. Good stuff. For highest inflation rate in 40 years, you had to work hard to get here. You had to really work hard and to do that in less than a year and less than a year stunning. You managed to make us have the highest inflation rate in 40 years. And last night on newsmax, we were talking with Monica Crowley. Absolutely, and she was talking about how difficult it is to reverse that once that starts. It can take a very long time to strategically get things in place so that your economy can sustain itself. So let's go across this Joe Biden brags about increasing wages by 4%, but inflation is at 7%. So essentially, this has become a tax on the middle class and the poor. That is the taxes that he doesn't want to talk about because your cost of living has increased. So that sums up your lack of energy independence. He, which is going to go into our next topic of Russia, he has now enabled the United States to have to be dependent upon foreign oil, which we were energy
The Larger Significance of the NPR-Sotomayor Story
"I'd like to talk about the larger significance of this NPR story about the Supreme Court and masking. I wasn't going to cover the story. I thought it was kind of dumb. But Debbie's like, no, people are talking about it. You should cover it, and I want to do it in a way that draws out. What's really going on here? Because you see the essence of fake news. And it started out with Nina totenberg, the kind of longtime court reporter of NPR. Saying the following, she said that according to sources at the court Sotomayor did not feel safe in proximity to people who were not masked. Nina told mug reported that justice Roberts, understanding that, quote, in some form as the other justices to mask up. And then says tort, they all did, except Gorsuch, who as it happens sits next to Sotomayor on the bench, is continued refusal to do so has meant that Sotomayor has not attended the justice weekly conference in person, joining by telephone. Now, this article was just picked up because it suggested this kind of, wow, even at the Supreme Court, you've got all this insider Garfield going on over masking. So right away, CNBC was all over at MSNBC, CNN, and then of course all the pundits began to weigh in. He has made a Hassan. Why is it that the public figures on the right who claim to be pious Christians and believers and morality and decency turn out to be awful awful people? So you got the statement and then all the speculations on top of the statement presuming, of course, the statement to be true. And then justice Roberts put out a statement basically saying I never asked the other justices to be masked, boom. And after that, this was even more unprecedented. There was a statement that came out from Sotomayor and Gorsuch. So what are my says? I never asked that gore such be masked. I never, I never made that requirement. Gorsuch said I never heard anything of this sort from the chief justice has never been any such rule. The whole story was made up. The whole story was lies. Now, the killer. Here's a Nina totenberg tweeting after all this after three statements think of the how unusual it is for three justices of the court to come out and directly dispute all of them, saying the same thing and say meeting Nina totenberg's reporting as follows. You think she'd be like eating crow, right? No. Quote, NPR stands by my reporting. In other words, the three justices are liars. Either that, or some analysts have tried to cover her by saying that in an original report, she said that the judge Roberts quote in some form as the justice system makeup as though in some form means he didn't really. He just sort of implied
Robert Netzly, Founder and CEO of Inspire Investing, Describes the Corporate Impact of Faith-Based Investments
"Tool Robert, you have to be excited about this. I mean, this seems to me like a great discovery. I mean, the idea that tons of people feel powerless, but then suddenly you're saying to them, no, we're going to help you to make sure that all the money that you have invested is used for God's purposes for what is right and true. It's hard for me to see this as anything other than a really big deal. Right. And it's actually $22.1 trillion Eric that is investments that are in retirement accounts alone because there's the numbers we have from the IRS. They're controlled by protestants, evangelicals and Catholics in this nation. $22.1 trillion over the last count. That's ridiculously a lot of money. And almost none of it is advocating for biblical values with the companies that they own. And to your point, it's easy to feel powerless, like these big Megan national corporations doing all these heinous things and what can we do? Maybe we just don't shop somewhere sometimes. But what we found, again, by God's grace, we've had some pretty outsized influence with companies, such as Costco that stopped donating money to gay pride parades because of our engagement with them. Chevron stopped donating the money to Planned Parenthood because of our shareholder engagements with them. Evergreen list of companies that we engage with as investors and say, hey, you know, we call up their investor relations department introduce ourselves where faith based investors we care about biblical values, we see that you're doing XYZ. We'd rather you not do that. Just stick to your business, please. And more often than not, they're very
Inspire Investing's Robert Netzly Is All About Biblically Responsible Investing
"Now. I'm excited about my guest, Robert netley, he is the head of inspire insight. You can go to inspire insight dot com. But Robert, when I heard about you and what you're doing, I thought, this is a dream come true for me. How do we where do we start? What is the, what is the quick version of describing what it is that you have done that I want my audience to know about. Yeah, here, president will be here. The quick version is we help Christians primarily or other people with attain to biblical values, invest for the glory of God. And we look for companies that are aligned with biblical values, which means we also kick out companies that are not aligned with biblical values, doing things like manufacturing worship drugs or selling pornography or signing up on the business coalition for the equality act and things of that nature. And really paying attention to what our money is doing to turn a profit for us as well as what we're supporting with ultimately God's
What Is Christian Nationalism?
"What is Christian nationalism? Is it opposed to patriotism and living for America? I'll tell you what Christian nationalism, Christian nationalism is what people use as a label when they don't like you. In other words, even the concept, I literally think The New York Times recently referred to me as a Christian nationalist. And my first response is, what idiots, right? Because you think no one even knows what the term means. They're using it as a bludgeon to say it's kind of like saying, you know, Christian bigot, Eric, it's completely meaningless. And it also I think underscores the deep misunderstanding in secular mainstream circles of what it is to live out one's faith. And whether that faith has anything to say about political issues. So when people talk about that, first of all, I would say please read my book if you can keep it. The forgotten promise of American liberty because I think in my book if you can keep it, I explain that you really can not escape being political if you live out
Is It Hard Being a Well-Known Christian?
"Is it hard being known? This is a great question. Okay. Is it hard being a known Christian, a public Christian, yes, in a way, in other words, I think that you feel a particular obligation to behave in a way that supports what you claim with your mouth to believe in, right? Yes. But it's funny because it brings up the bigger issue that we all ought to be living publicly as Christians in a way so that there are people around you who know that you're a Christian who are looking at you. Now, as we ought to put all put this pressure on ourselves or are you living as a hidden Christian? If you're living as a hidden Christian, I would ask you why that is. And what you propose to gain by it or how do you glorify God if you are not known for your
Ex-Labor Secretary Reich Says Democrats Should Assault Sinema
"Now, last night, former Clinton secretary of labor and Harvard professor Robert Reich tweeted out, tonight, Republican senators lined up to shake Kirsten sinema's hand. Democratic senators should have given her the backs of their hands. After withering criticism for apparently encouraging violence against women, he deleted that tweet. What do you make of that tweet by Robert Reich? It shows you that he is part of this cabal behind the curtain that is pushing forward, very vigorously this socialist agenda. And they know they have a very narrow window to push this through. They're fully aware of that.
Project Veritas Founder James O'Keefe on EcoHealth, DARPA and Fauci Lying Under Oath
"James, I want to ask you, you also exposed this story. I think last week, doctor Robert Malone and Naomi wolf say that this is bigger than The Pentagon papers. So it's potentially civilizational altering stuff. The story has multiple parts, one with darpa, and then one with potential suppression of early treatments. There's a mention of the trusted truth initiative. James, can you kind of update our audience on this story? So these were documents that, again, were transmitted to us from a source. I wonder if the FBI will raid me again that you're starting to certainly sense a pattern here. It's absurd. I won't tell you who the source is, but we received documents from inside the Department of Defense, specifically darpa, defense advanced research projects agency in Arlington, Virginia, which is a division of the Department of Defense, and these documents were authored by a major in the United States Marine Corps who was a fellow at darpa. So effectively they're sort of Pentagon papers that we've broken last week. And the documents state that eco health alliance, this group approached darpa in the Department of Defense for a gain of function research on COVID born coronaviruses in March of 2018. The Defense Department rejected this proposal on the grounds it was too risky. It was too dangerous. So our department defense thought, no, now that we can't proceed with this research for obvious reasons, it was lead to, I don't know, a pandemic or something. And then the Marine Corps major writes in this document, but Anthony Fauci, as head of naid, a proceeded with this research. So the Marine Corps statements, obviously a credible source here inside darpa, would seem to indicate that Doctor Fauci live under oath. Now Charlie, we break the documents and the very next morning Fauci is being questioned by senator Marshall and Fauci does address project veritas mentions us by name, authenticates the documents, but calls into question the credibility of this report and the Marine Corps guy who wrote it. And I believe Fauci is playing semantic games because obviously there were two separate proposals here. Fauci didn't see the precise identical proposal that eco health alliance approached darpa with, it was a different one, but fascinating stuff. And I think that there'll be more whistleblowers and documents coming out as a result of this exposure.

"robert o" Discussed on Eye On A.I.
"Regular listeners to the podcast know that I'm interested in the geopolitical implications of artificial intelligence. The most pressing of those implications is the competition between the U.S. and China to integrate AI into their military capabilities. That matters because dominance in the technology not only means victory in any future war, but more importantly, likely guarantees the longevity and global influence of the governments that wield it. Already, China is exporting its AI enabled surveillance technology, which can be used to quash the scent to client states and is espousing an authoritarian model that promises economic prosperity as a counter to democracy. Something that the Soviet Union was never able to do. Western liberal democracy may not be the end of history that Francis fukuyama foresaw. This week Robert O work, former deputy Secretary of Defense and recently co chairman of the national security commission on AI talks about the competition about the evolution of so called algorithmic warfare about the development of lethal swarm technology and the dangers of autonomous control systems that could inadvertently trigger war. Secretary work is one of the best place people to talk about these issues. I've had them on the podcast before and hope to have him again as this story unfolds. I hope you find the conversation as important as I did, and I'd love to hear your thoughts. Please email me.

"The pharma companies come into the doctor's office service dinner and they they give free samples and do all these things for us and it basically destroys our ability to be objective. And do what we're supposed to do which is focused on patient outcomes and our and do the best thing for our patients one of the egregious. Examples of this is oncology cancer therapy where over half perhaps seventy five percent of these guys incomes is from retailing. chemotherapy drugs. Now if you're a doctor. And i was a doctor and i told you. Here's a product or a medication. Sell this and you keep twenty five percent or twenty percent that's a federal crime called capping and we both go to jail if we were caught but there is an exception for these pharmaceutical companies. And they're allowed to To do this. And they've basically got the oncologist or the cancer. Doctors completely bought out. It's not like they give them meals or anything like that. They and the story gets worse. They are incentivized by the milligram. In other words they're incentivized use larger doses. Because they get paid more for larger doses. Now of course. Doctors are trained in ethics and were one of the most highly skilled and best trained groups of large groups in america. But it's impossible to nor ignore influences like this. And if for that reason and others perhaps more importantly oncology is almost completely ineffective there are about five or six entities or diseases that can be effectively treated testicular cancer..

"You know really a buddha. But he goes around in different universes To get near beings who bring out their wisdom and ask and find any that he finds. He makes him talk about wisdom and not about more simplistic day. And so it's a special kind of archangel. Almost you could say of the buddha buddhist. And they say that he was. He was scolding shocker mooney and avello cadavre and saying you guys make such a fuss about the indians and the tibetans and you're just only going here and then goes to bed and similarly turned on and cetera at what about the chinese who guys are leaving them in the dust and you didn't go there and so and so i'm gonna incarnate in china and i'm going to them and then you know they like time and they keep good records his history and they are very me no common sense to have really good cook at carnegie there bring the wisdom to them so sort of the buddhist send. The dow is had this view the enlightened ones on both sides that they were incarnated in each other which is a great thing that an ancient time. Actually india also did so. The indians would see the that shiva. And and and especially vishnu. They would see as being the buddha for people who needed a buddha. And then the buddhist would see buddha as being vishnu and shiva and so on for being them when for people who needed them so that way. They avoided religious conflict in their own ancient time. If you follow me. And they didn't get into that lethal taking about how you you believe my way or kill you. Which is a nasty thing that we see coming from the west more although occasionally they even people can find interpretations where they can kate into everywhere. So nobody's perfect but they were less likely to do that. For some reason in asia i think because they were more they were wealthier actually those countries which is hard for european derived people to acknowledge because lately they're supposed to be underdeveloped but they were actually much wealthier Engine time and therefore they're kings and social authorities even high priests were more tolerant of the mystics in china and in in china and confucius time you know china's said he wouldn't tolerate one person who would just be meditate all their life and wouldn't perform something for society you know and and loud too when he wanted to offer data. He left the country when he wasn't doing his day job. If you understand so economy was bloated more like european economy less tolerant. Let's allowing people to drop out on. Be just completely seek the way. If you will and later taoism definitely is inspired and supports initially and then competes eventually but supports the Intrusion in any society of the mendicant option. Where you can miss drop out and people feed you. Add let you be exempt from taxes and military service and even women free labor service Household labor service and child berry.

Poly one of the parts in my life. That really allowed me to be who i l. You did what it was to be able to have some discipline Have leadership learn some skills. In fact i was going to be an officer in the navy and at the age of sixteen. I actually was able to get a three month. Birth on an canadian forces Ship with five other cats. And when i stepped off the ship. Yeah no. i don't in the navy. So i was so glad to learn that then you instead of getting my scholarship going through naval college becoming hound to commit at least seven years for the education though. You're very fun. Learnt that young age that the navy was not for me. The first thing that pops into my mind is fortuitous. But i also hear that through your experiences in nice cadets that you learned this discipline and that's a major thing to to have that exposure and i'd love to talk about how that sam i guess influenced as you as you've moved into other feuds. Now i know that you had deep involvement with app development. Tell us a little bit about that. When i was getting when i started conceiving the my first book success left aclu I was thinking about writing a kind you want to put into it and i was doing a training where i was one of the guests at an event and then i had time off the stage. Where one of the biggest things about. I will always be alert. I'm never gonna quit learning yet. So i'm going to be in the audience as much as i can. The breakout room. So i walked into a room and i walked into the wrong one four so i thought i want. I sat down and he the person starts talking talking about tops. This back about two thousand. Thirteen and i'm listening. I'm like oh. I'm in the wrong room and i get up to leave and i'm just so that the door when he said something that stop me and my translates he'd been given great doubt on apps and he said look most people start a business and they start the business they developed their website and then there's an afterthought they develop out for. Why not use an out to launch your business and that call attention on your morale sat back down. Listen to the rest of his presentation. We tell him bray talk to and then i went over. I said look can app launch a book and he said well. Tell me a little bit about your book so i kind of went through the six steps. I want to write my and he just started telling me all these brilliant things that we can do. And i'm dumbfounded. I'm like you can do that with an out..

This i think the player role because yet to wait around yet to get approval there was a lot of red type around him getting proper help for his voice cancer. Absolutely the died in nineteen seventy seven and you know. Many people say that we missed out on one of the true intellectual heroes of the struggle and someone who was a deeply principled man. They eventually inscribed very interesting quote on his tombstone. It was these his woods true leadership. And i don't think anyone by the way can argue this. This is one of those things that unless you're you're an ignoramus or you are willfully being destructive stupid. Can you disagree with us. Listen to this. This is beautifully says. True leadership demands complete subjugation of self absolute integrity and uprightness of character courage and fearlessness and above all consuming. Love for one's people shoyer argue with that. Yeah he was. Buried back in crawford net and Luckily one of the few things that a department of arts and culture whoever might be responsible have done because they not good at keeping up history and particularly on ansi history. Something that the very bitter about and they should be They have restored his grave profit. They've they've i think they've almost made it a bit uglier but at least someone's looking after it was buried in quite a simple grave. It's got a tombstone. His wife is now buried next to him. But you know his children live all over. The world and in fact grew up for much of their lives in america. He sent him over there to study with the little money he had and he was famous by the way for giving away lots of the money that he was meant to keep for his own use and he never left anything close to a grand life. He was tremendously humble man right to the end. Someone who i wish i had known more about. You know i. He'd died before. I was born. But i would have liked to have known more about him. I would have liked to have had the opportunity and his voice was never recorded his friend. Benjamin and often says that he regrets the fact that he didn't record him in a few meetings they had in kimberly he and his wife. Anne used to come visit robertson veronica and he said he was so scared of recording him just in case that got him roberts into trouble and you know again we missed out on a real leader here if you go to that little house and rub nine and which is tiny. It's the size of probably most people's botham and it was really neglected as as part of the whole rubber nine and exhibit for the longest time. I know that they've opened it up now but to get the sense of complete isolation and despair at this man must have gone through during that time while he was working away trying to get these degrees but the idea that he couldn't speak anyone seems to me to be a punishment that is the most cruel kind for an intellectual agreed after percent. So there he is robert mangaliso sobukwe. Who died in nineteen seventy seven and really has left an enduring mark on south africa and the pac continues to be a party which has a very limited. But i suppose an intellectually important history in south africa there is one of the tiniest little parties non and that's largely as a result. What happened off to rub it soup. Grand the fact that the anc con claim him as their own and therefore don't go to huge trouble to emphasize his role in history. But a man who's affected the coast of south africa's story eighty nine like to learn more about Yeah i found reading about him and listening to this interviews extraordinarily interesting so there is rubbish. Sabuku south african. We can be very proud of the man who who did what he said and said what.

"Policy. Where he was looking at non-racial answer by they needed Form the was president and stuff was actually this was led by the pse to speak the sharpeville massacre it was and and obviously the sharpeville massacre to those who don't know was a water. Shed moment in south african history. He wanted the people of soweto. Too much on the nearest police station in orlando and to defy the possible as the postles required black africans to present a pass anytime they were asked so by police and they were only allowed to travel within certain hours. They went to the allowed to be out of black areas in inverted commas outside of those allies and the threat of arrest was hanging over every black person's head even if they were just trying to get home from work something which which in a very very dilute form. Some of us have come to experience during lockdown with curfews but it was much brutal and militant and they decided on peaceful protest. They wanted too much in numbers so they couldn't all be arrested and to make a point across the country all the branches the pac had got together and on that day the twenty first of march they were going to mont on the police stations. Of course it didn't go very well. Because even though robertson book had gone to the trouble of first resigning from bits and a very eloquent letter in which he but his position across that he needed to follow his political instincts and leading an organization and lead black south africans into freedom. He also simulators to the police saying please. Can we try our best. We are planning this protest. Let's try to keep it nonviolent. And he hoped. I think in his heart of hearts that it wouldn't become an ugly bloodshed day. Of course that was not to be so the psc at organizing various areas and susan. Shuffle in six people were killed and he was arrested. The government immediately banned the pac and banned the ansi as well and that was when he was incarcerated but it was one hundred percent guarantee that turning point in the history of our country. It was really the moment that the government the old regime had hoped full. Because now they could prove a. You know there's the danger with the black majority and we've got to impose stricter and more stringent and we'll brutal laws and up pass. Laws are definitely going to stay in place you know. They double dumb and he was obviously sent to jail fairly quickly. He was tried. He was found guilty of breaking a number of laws incitement among them sentenced to twenty three years in prison and those three years were served at constitution hill. Another famous prisoner of constitution hill. In one of the reasons that our constitutional court is based there is because robertson book. We spent his time and by the way doing hard labor. It wasn't like he was just put in the cell. He had to do hard labor as part of his sentence and then pass that he was Moved to robben. Island way remained for the digital six years S for the clause that you'd mentioned earlier super-quick. Laws said it was renewed every year. Which is absolutely ludicrous. Just this is one of the sad part of history and then you have to imagine because his wife veronique is has done one or two interviews she passed away. I think in recently twenty seventeen or two thousand eighteen at a very advanced stage and she. She said a few things about him. He was a very st kind of a learner. He was an academic. He was a professorial type of man and the him to be sentenced to hard labour for those first three years and then to be put in the conditions that he was putting robben island must have been extremely difficult. Fame on robben island deny visited robben island and spent the night on robben island. Once this single place that caught my attention as we drove pasta. Because that point it wasn't even part of the museum was robertson book was house it was on the route between the maximum security prison. Where all the famous prisoners that we know of including nelson mandela stayed and between that prison and the quarry where they went to work every day was robertson bouquets house and it was surrounded by fences he lived on his own. He was not allowed contact with other prisoners and he was isolated from them because in the eyes of the of the national party government he was the most dangerous label because he was also you know. It's extraordinarily clever man. And he used to watch she's to wake up in the morning never really knew when his breakfast would come with part of the reason that it was such torture and eat start his day by going up to the fence and waiting for the other prisoners to go post. He couldn't speak to them because then he'd be punished so he would just pick up a handful of sand and let the sand fall to the ground again. Kind of saying this is our land. Don't forget we've gotta keep fighting for our land and all the other prisoners was part of their ritual to kind of salute him as they walked past on their way to the quarry but there was a there was already a a difference of opinion and a difference of politics creeping in between the anc and pac and many have argued. That robert sabuku was treated much more unfairly because of that unbelievable isolation he was subject to and affected health. Very very badly infant. Just imagine spending six years in title oscillation in no communication. Although they say that that he managed to communicate somehow assan language he wasn't allowed the occasional communication with his wife veronica and his sprint. Benjamin pug poland who he meant it fits university and who became his biographer. Much later on and i've seen interviews with benjamin punt which extraordinary very very interesting friendship that these two built up over the benjamin would send him clothes and whatever he was allowed to. He wants tried to send him a cop and they said that was not allowed. In fact. robert sukhoi said no doesn't make it to luxuries for me in my little house. I must remember. I'm in prison. I'm ben what he would ask for underwear and socks in that kind of thing and he was quite particular about what he wouldn't wouldn't accept as steady yet. He got his degree in prison. That's right you got a couple of degrees. While he was he was locked up. Eventually as i said his health started to deteriorate he was smoke. A lifelong smoke used to smoke a pipe again. Very professorial you know. And i think that the the government saw that they would have a problem on their hands. If you died in jail. They released him into banishment. In inverted commas in kimberley of all places hellish airway and. He was sent to a little house where he was allowed to stay with his wife but he was under house arrest. He wasn't allowed to do anything political or go straight back to prison so the rules were extremely strict and he wasn't allowed political visitors. Although i think he did meet with steve biko during that time but also jane. Tom which is another set point was he received office from i think team particular universities in the united states to take up posts say and requested that he wanted to take his his family him and his family over to take these tests right and And then minister of justice. John foster just not the mission evident ever again. Yeah they really just would not. They were devastated. This guy it's such an expression of what an incredible person he must have been that they were so terrified of him that they wouldn't even speak to anybody they wouldn't let him go overseas. You know you must.

"And people like Allen guelzo and others who pointed out the many factual errors in the argument that they were putting the idea that United States is really nothing more than a construct of racism is to fly in the face of all the extraordinary wonderful impressive human achievements that Americans have a dog Chief Dave the last quarter of the millennium Yeah, and so do you see any benefit to thinking like this or do you think it's all just just unhealthy? I think we the trouble with somebody else in writing a book and I've written nineteen now and it's very important to to keep remembering that one must always be as objective as possible. Don't don't allow your political views to influence your history. It's it's rule number one, really. You mustn't be objective. I don't believe when Howard Zinn with his Marxism and his assumptions was sat down or indeed Eric hobsbawm as well as his true old and Ethan Thompson, and any number of other faiths missed writers, sat down to write their books, but they were really doing anything more than using history as a way of propagating their Politics on to the Y. Out and I find that deep down professional and something that nobody should ever do. You had a question about different perspectives. Oh, yeah, that's right. So in different parts of the world Churchill is looked upon very differently so long for example in the United States to take one place. He's looked on his very he's looked on as a lot more heroic than a place like India and Bengal. I've talked to people from those countries and he's looked at as a lot more of tyrant there than he is in the United States. So why would you do you believe that it's this this lies around misinformation or do you believe that there's legitimate want in these countries to have a distaste for him? Well, I mean, of course in India the the movement for Indian independence is part of their of their National myth. It's an essential part of their creation myth. It's why you Americans need to see King George the third for example as as a tyrant which which my forthcoming book will hopefully points out that you can't call him a tyrant unless you're using the word tolerant and completely different way from normal for normal people. So we took you know Alfred the Great was probably not the enormous Splendid outstanding figure that we britons make him out to be the the French, of course on the podium and the Google both of them had major problems with their their lives careers and characters and each country has its foundational month. That it needs to believe in and and propagate and India is no different idea but a country that like Britain and the person like Churchill gave as much to India as as they did. It could be considered tyrants. If you want a real Tyrant, you look at the Japanese empire which was knocking on the gates of India in nineteen forty-one to nineteen fifty-three which in the Philippines, for example Hills Seventeen percent of the population in the short time that they were in occupation had the Japanese killed seventy 15% of the Indian population. They would be responsible for fifty million killed What stopped them Winston Churchill the British Army and the Indian army which together I help them back in in Burma. And so that is not the action of the Tyrant saving fifty million people's lives. Well as we wrap up this interview, I have to ask this question. What is your favorite on-screen depiction of Churchill? I can't decide between a cow and Gary Oldman. I was wondering the expert and well actually although Gary Oldman was absolutely superb job. I'm not going to go quite so far with John Lithgow because he's he's six foot five and Winston Churchill. So he doesn't really care that church idiot, but I'm afraid what I'd like you to do is watch a show called The Gathering storm and with Robert Hardy who I think for me, I was Churchill. He got Churchill better even than Gary Oldman who definitely comes a face seconds and Churchill has been depicted in something like a hundred and fifty movies. And and so to get even the top three or four or five is pretty impressive, but but Robert Hardy or or gharial So, all right. So before we end the interview, we just wanted to get some information on your next book highlights. Well, well as I say, might it's a biography of your last king endure the third. I think I'm going to call it sort of last king of America when you go to see Hamilton and you see that sort of lists being extremely can't figure singing a song about how I hoping to kill as many Americans as possible kill your friends and family or when you read The Jeffersons a 28 charges against him in the American Declaration of Independence you which course have a tyrant and you realize that that is easily the most misunderstood and underappreciated of Britain's Britain's marks. He was just tremendously unfortunate that he should have been up against leaders like George Washington brilliant polymath life Benjamin Franklin the Giants like Madison and Monroe your lawyers like John Adams the idea that they all and wordsmiths like wage. So this idea that they should all lived in the same place. Same decade is really tremendously unfair on parole Joseph. I am excited for you to convince me as an American, but just give me a fair hearing. That's all I'm asking for not nothing more than that. Absolutely. We'll see in Georgia.

"The Bengal famine I go into it over six stages. Also, I'm explaining what's happened. And what Churchill did to alleviate it I make no apologies for his his racist remarks I go into them and and thought them all and you know, you have to see everything in the basis of evidence. And and and this is something very rarely get in the bath. In the knocking revisionist books, they never very long these books because the reason that's up the various myths and claim. The other thing you can do is what is like my cook is to is to go on the Hillsdale College websites The Churchill project where website is Hillsdale College in Michigan and to hit the website for the international Churchill society and they will actually show you the documents, you know, can you can find the document very easily defined the arguments and and this and both for and against and listen to the truth until I think there is a lot you can do actually cuz most people are reasonable people most people are mature enough to accept that if they've heard some some, you know, wild mad rumor theory about how even church or was that there might be another job. Side to the story and luckily both Hillsdale and the international churches society and have her put that full right. So I'm curious there seems to be you know, a lot of people who don't like looking at evidence or don't delve into all of it. What are the motives Behind these people want to the face of Earth and I think diversity in an attempt in to to throw an intention to draw attention to themselves is a is strong one. I have to say in some with some people. I have noticed severe psychological disorder, you know people who are taught in tents and. That's just pretty crazy who may become obsolete obsessive and fanatical about about various things. That church was supposed to have done and the other problem, of course. Because your actual session name editors will run stories. However, measly the evidence is last year. There was a accusation that Winston Churchill was unfaithful to his wife and had a mistress and which is completely untrue and when you look at the evidence again, it it's it explodes as soon you investigate it minutes and yet I had to waste two pages of my of my book exploding these these myths which I spent much better elsewhere writing about other things. So, yes, you do get if somebody comes up with some mad theory about Churchill they will get the chance to just go on television or write articles in newspapers and make a big facet of it and it's only much later that people are really when they they look into it off. Able to tell the truth and in those cases nine times out of ten Churchill comes off scot-free as I say you made many hours many blunders in his life the idea that he was some kind of them will figure or or you know, a bad man. Let alone a Genesis Idol Maniac who deliberately wanted to kill millions of innocent bengalis. For example home is complete with that. So out of all the moments in Churchill's life because he had a lot from challenging appeasement to his inspiring speeches to his leadership in a time of war in your opinion. What was Churchill's finest Hour? Well, I mean, I think the moment that he became prime minister on on Friday the 10th May nineteen forty years, which he wrote later in his woman was I felt as if I were walking with Destiny and it all my past life had been better preparation for this hour for this trial. I think that was the was the key moment. He had been waiting all his life to become Prime Minister, but he'd been practicing pairing in every aspect we would imagine he had this tremendously powerful sense of Destiny, which is why I called my book Churchill walking Destiny ever since he was sixteen years old. He believed he was going to save Britain and save Europe. And and save the Empire and of course fifty years later when he was actually 65 years old. He did do these things great things. And so I think that moment where he finally was allowed to get on with the war in the primary position as prime minister was that was the key moment. But but there are any numbers the Battle of Britain Blitz, very important moments in the first world war, of course as well. It moments in his life to its really they were just one off the other his great speech at Fulton Missouri on the 5th of March 1946, which he warned about the Iron Curtain that was falling across Europe. You know, I am absolutely mad. I suppose in a way just to choose one, but you only allow me one so I'm going to choose that one. Yeah. Well Turtles a man who's dead? Lived a thousand lives in one I guess and it's clear. He had some very great moments and he was pretty great man. But younger Generations like my own page to see less Merit in the mire and great people. They see no difference between a statue of Robert E Lee and a statue of Churchill. Why is this bad? Why should we look up to great people a little traction himself had an answer for that really which was when a young American about your aged. In fact, it came up to him at the coronation luncheon in the Queen's coronation in June nineteen fifty-three and said said to him asked him for the sort of Life advice basically and George Will said study history study history for therein lies all the secrets of statecraft and if you can't tell the difference between a Confederate Amanda dead. Who wanted to split up the union and defend and keep slavery and monstrous institution and somebody who wanted to save people who were being enslaved by adults. Then you really do need to study history. And also by the way, you might also study your own values. So after reading all your books and articles, it seems like you have a certain distaste for modern revisionist takes on History, you know such as Howard Zinn or the sixth nineteen project interpretations. So it wouldn't I bother with either a face. So why do you believe Betty Owen histories of American Zen and I'm afraid the sixth nineteen project is an absurdity and many historians. I think there were ten very brave historic. We do have to be quite Brave to criticize The Sixteen nineteen project.

"So so you're right there. He was supposed actually at least 2 to be enfranchising women got the gold standard completely wrong. So you can draw up a long list of severe indictment against his against his musical time. He was of course in the House of Commons for nearly two-thirds of a century in Provo front all of the Grateful Dead. This issue so I don't think anybody could expect him to get everything right but he did get a fair lot of things wrong, but the really important things the 20th century wage rise of the German Empire before the first world war the rise, of course is Hitler and the Nazis after the first world war and before the second world war and then the rise of subject has lost the separable. He was the first person to get these things. Right and he got them right years before those people and he was for many years the only person who got the right and so I think that's the the sort of advantages of the sort Victories of Winston Churchill far outweigh the very serious discipline. Yeah, that's interesting. So do you believe that people who do not like Churchill use these flaws as a justification for doing so or do you think that they have a general just distaste for him or they just wage? Want to not like him. Well, it breaks down the church revisionism breaks down into an awful lot of different groups. You do have of course the fascists and Communists who had not because of what he said and because he was the most prominent anti-fascist and anti-communist of his day. So they're bound to 8 and and he would hang welcome their hatred of printing else, you know, that's just part of that's part of politics and there are some people who are just frankly perverse who if they see somebody is tremendously popular and and beloved they want to try and knock him down simply in order to draw attention to themselves. And you do get quite a few historians who are like that and they do it just adds a sense of wanting to be different and wanting to be perverse and you have people who just unwilling to accept his greatness because of birth Of the floors and that they are so basically the feet of clay are more important than the pedestal and in that I think often some type of she often goes back to a an inability to see the word for the trees, you know, and it's a shame sometimes. I think that that when I get letters about really obscure parts of churches life that they therefore think that more important than standing up against Adolf Hitler and destroying the evil man who ever existed in human history. So I think you have to get everything into the states of being in Astoria and not everybody does. Yeah, especially we see today how the same name is Statue of parliament Square was spray-painted with the words was a racist just quite a claim. It seems more and people in our generation believe Churchill to have been involved. Gassing Arabs and murdering three million Bangles in India, which are some wild claims even interests actions. That's right. And when you when look at each of of course, I carefully in each of these games you realize what complete and utter rubbish they are when you go to the original sources, which I've done and look at this place. He gassed arrows actually would be were to use lachrymose free gas which means tear gas which is used in I live in cities all over Europe and I think more and in America as well with it's not it's not phosgene gas. It's not mustard gas. It's not a gas that kills you. It's gas that makes your your eyes water so much that you can log on Artic with regard to the three million bengalis. Look that was a terrible family, but the fact was that the way in which we fed the Bengals Historically used by getting rice from Malaysia and Thailand and Burma and elsewhere which were all under job Japanese Occupation in late 1942 and early nineteen forty three p in the family took made Family took place because of gigantic cyclo which hit Bengal and which destroyed the roads and the rail links and wage stopped the the rice from being brought in but Churchill got on to President Roosevelt to the Prime Minister of Australia and Canada and so on Thursday and did manage to get hundreds of thousands tons of food brought into Bengal, but just not enough because they were Japanese submarines in the Bay of Bengal and page for him to therefore. We called a Genesis Idol Maniac, which was one thing that he's been recently accused of his completely enough to be wrong. You can see that when you look at the Dead Original sources and go back just very sort of soberly to look at the ends. So calling him genocide Maniac is quite the claim and considering he stopped probably the worst genocide Maniac in history. Where are these claims coming from all over the place. Usually the the internet Twitter which my friend Neil Ferguson has called the universal lavatory warm thing is like very good summation when this is going to be a magnificent moment for World Peace, everybody in the world was going to be able have a gigantic Global conversation with them going to you know, love each other than by our Etc what actually has happened.

"Hello, everybody today. We have a very special episode of the speech. We are sitting down with best-selling author and historian Andrew Roberts. He's written a number of books including the polian the life in Churchill Walking With Destiny, which has been called. Undoubtedly the best single volume biography of Churchill ever ridden the latter of which will be the subject of this interview. So Mister Robert feldberg I do. How are you today? Thanks very much indeed. So having me on the show in and Josh, it's great honor and I'm On Top form. I think how you are doing. Great. I'm doing excellent. So our first question is there's been a lot written about Churchill. So what drove you to delve into him and write about him and dig into things that perhaps has been questioned em you if anything under under estimating it when you say a lot there have in fact been 1009 biographies of virtual been published and so dead. So it's ridiculously large about ready. And the reason that I was supposed Hebrew stick enough to write the 1,000 and 10th mile graffiti was because there's an enormous collection of new material that's come out a huge sort of cornucopia of news sources Majesty. The queen allowed me to be the first Churchill biographer to use the father's Diaries. And of course he met Winston Churchill every week in the lunch together every Tuesday during the second world war and then luckily wrote down everything Churchill set and so we have this magnificent new source, but on top of that they've been fifty sets of papers 53, I think it is sets of papers that have been deposited at Churchill College archives since the last major biography of him the Russian ambassador of the day, we have his diaries that have now been published in Moscow. There's been some papers off. The church or family that that they allowed me to use which hasn't been used before in a church locally. So there's a there's a mass of news sources and that's really the reason why I decided after writing about church or four months, maybe thirty years to write this book. What was it like assessing these new wartime Diaries? How did you feel the first one to gain access to these news sources tremendously excited and it's the thing that historians Dream of Jeannie and biographers. We are always looking for this special, you know moments and frankly to be allowed use the Kings Diaries because of course Churchill Down you the king and a new looking well, but they didn't necessarily get on to be well before the war broke out because the king had been a huge supporter of the policy appeasement of Germany and bought a structural had been a supporter of the king Zelda Bubba and King Edward the 8th later Duke of Windsor during the appeasement crisis. So, in fact, there was a chance that they might not have put on but luckily they did and I'm very very much indeed became new place friends. And so this diary more than anything else. I think more than any other single Source was the thing that really, you know, got me out of bed in the morning and phone number. To Windsor Castle and the round Tower it would also which is where they're all our archives are. Right. That's very cool at the end of your book. You mentioned how in a survey of 3,000 students 20% thought Churchill to be a fictional character which took me away and you suggest this is an indignant of the virtual exercising of Churchill from the school system. Why is the man he's a British school children? Obviously, I am very addicted Church Jose was a feature. I'm and the worst thing was that they also thought that Sherlock Holmes and Eleanor Rigby were real people off. So there's an attack on the education system there I think as well. He's just not taught in schools. This is the problem and whereas whereas he is around the world off for some reason in his own country. He isn't which I think considering who is the greatest area that Britain had is outrageous. Yeah. What do you think is the value? You've learning about Churchill teaching him in schools. I think there are lots of values. I think partly of course, it's just his personality and character is resilience his refusal to to be held back with any of the disasters and blunders and errors that he made in his life. He kept he going on his through a tremendous sense of of self-belief, I think so there are lots of extraordinary aspects of his character his sense of humor who's the capacity for hard work his capacity to teach himself. He's a huge order autodidact. And so that I think is always worthwhile. And then of course the Eternal truths of his stance against Fascism and and, and the fact that for many years he was the only person to warn against totalitarianism in the in the nineteen-thirties and then who's the first person dead. The post-war period toward about Stalin and Eastern Europe and and the dangers of Soviet communism. So too on top of this extraordinary prescience about the dangers of totalitarianism. You also have this extraordinary personality who is a larger-than-life figure in every way. Yeah. So considering all those facts that you just projected. Why do you think that he's so neglected? Well partly it's because he was somebody who was born in the lounge. When Charles Darwin was still alive and therefore he believed in a hierarchy of the races and although we today of course know that to be completely absurd and Lounge scene. In fact, it was considered in those days to be a scientific fact and and he believed it and so he made various jokes and references and remarks that are dead. Completely unacceptable in today's in today's world, you know are totally you know much worse than Politically Incorrect. And so he's he's a sort of thought of as now being very much so much part of the past and and yet not so far back like Oliver Cromwell Charles the first or something like a home Washington either as to be tied into into modern mores with regard to race and I think that is the primary reason for him not being exercised from the school curriculum, right? Well there seems to be some critiques of Churchill that are fair and some not thoughts of the fair ones include a little e is support of Edward the 8th his refusal to step down as prime minister after stroke. So on in the words of Churchill to do justice to a great man discrimination It's necessary gosh, gosh, however quenching is always insisted. You come to the conclusion you address these criticisms throughout your book, but you still come to include thought he deserves admiration and praise did why did you come to this conclusion when you're absolutely right he made mistake after mistake. He the god of the Dardanelles. We collectively campaign and left a hundred and forty seven thousand Allied soldiers killed and wounded and it was very much his idea..

"Both I the audience among. Those in listen to this and I think there's so many layers that we can. Open up and UNWRAP. Here's and. Go for it. Yeah, I wonder in the afterlife. What is your perspective of a given that? We're on this side of law at the moment. What do you think is waiting for us? Is there an? What is the somewhere outside of the novel and talking about my views of the afterlife, afterlife, I, actually. My nace Jesus is closer to my own views of the afterlife I did an MA NFC. Called Resurrect terrarium twenty. Resurrect nineteen. Twenty. And I wrote that one in a lot less time. Grenade is is you don't have that much time, so I had a year. but basically it started before I B. I began my MBA program. It started as A. Flyer that you're handed. You've awakened in what looks like a hospital and you're handed a flyer and the Flyer says welcome to the afterlife. You've been resurrected from the dead now. Here are a few things you to know. is where is everyone else? and the answer to that is how good. How well do you speak abalone? Obviously, you're going to be resurrected and cohorts along with people who understand your culture, your time, and to some extent your language. So with that background I wrote this story and when I wrote that the the afterlife that I described had several different sex types flavors that you will based on what region you woke up in. the one that I will. I had my main character. Wake up in is basically a bucolic. Not Socialistic, but you know money is only important as cipher of the key things going you people don't really care about money. The only big difference between that world and our global does that no one dies. You have about a thousand years to get it right and move on to the next level of life. So. It's very much like this life and the reason I wrote it. That way is in and the Bible and in the way the Jews of the day. Believe that you know you. The body is resurrected. Okay when we die, we don't spend an eternity sort of floating in a spiritual ether. human beings are embodied creatures. Now you take away the body What have you have to have a body to have a human?.

"The dunk book of the Dun Cow. People who write books at make these. Thank our and still enjoy the story. I mean you have to enjoy the story otherwise just get nonfiction out. It's not known compelling, is it? Yeah I mean if you want to read just the philosophy and the philosophy or get out, something else read it, but if you want if you're gonna read a story, that's GonNa make you think Then? The story has to be good and I'm hoping mine is and I think it is and I, think others read it I had a few other suit told me that they really liked the story itself. so that if you took out all the theodose, the Odyssey and all the discussion of of the morality of reincarnation, etc, that's in there then. It's still a good tale. That's important, but I also want a story that when people get to at the goal. And you know, and maybe think about things a little more think about things in an entirely new way to just just that slight just that slow at moment of pause net. Just to get. Absolutely. I wonder. Do you still like Bass Guitars? You are still like what he's still advice guitars. Bass Guitars I love listening to Bass Guitar when I listened to a piece. That's the instrument that I focus on, so if I'm listening to a jazz piece or blues piece I, follow the Bass Guitar, and then here all the end, your instruments centered around it but I no longer play Nah. I sold my guitar years ago to buy a mattress early honoring management really poor. I found out by the way. The sister of the guided bought it that it became a life changing thing for him to own the base that I sold. That happen. But that had been so many years even more years in between when I got might be a work for the publisher, etc, that Well. My life tried to give me in Bass. Guitar and my fingers just couldn't remember it I spend. To figure out where it was. You know so yeah. I was quite frustrated by, and eventually sold it to and fellow Bass Player at Night Church and decided the time I would spend. A relearning the instrument, and it would be pretty intense and then be the time you spend practicing because if you're in a band and practicing, it's almost like being the second marriage you know resent a lot on the band. Get any good at all words, does that come from? It comes from a marriage which is paramount to me, but also be from any other creative pursuits like writing. So I gave Ktar. On. A know it. It's not something you play. Music seems to be for me a window to my soul. Do you find that you get much from music? Oh. Yes,.

"Who's aware of what has happened in our history is a species would say that evil is is entirely made up. Thing, it's obviously. Whether, you believe in some form of demonic force, or whether Itin, the this latter way whether you think that the collective bad acts of humanity can be evil and create evil. On, it's out there and that is. On us if you will and so. You know to me the tooth and claw of. In. This includes viruses unfortunately. is not part of of. The equation if you will of of evil and and God's doings in the world it's it's as if you if you were to say well, let's make the molecule water with hydrogen and no oxygen. If you're going to create light. It's GonNa HAP- Ramadorai I can't one of the parameters is that life does its thing, and that includes viruses that includes animals that eat other animals. And many humans we don't and has one of the characters in the story puts it you don't. He says well if you does the, he's chef, so he's talking to. Somebody says you know. Does the chef, not know his butcher. Basically yet on you eat the potato. Do not rip it from. The soil does not lie. You know come from death. So That's not part of the equation of good and evil to me, and that includes covid nineteen now going back to the earlier thing human. Human Beings, how we be even the world. we could all handle this better. You know if we if we were with behavior toward each other as the best of us. Jesus Buddha wherever you want to look at for your inspiration. If we were to behave toward each other. Is these people say we should? As we all know really I think that we should. Then a lot of these questions wouldn't come up. Because when someone was sick, then instead of dealing with things on their own You know people would be looking for them. We've had some of that I mean. We'd had people in our neighborhood who called up and said Hey, you need anything from the store to strop. English muffins off at our home yet, so this is where sometimes the very best of US comes out. When there's been some form a tragedy. It's famous. There's a flood or tornado, and then people just suddenly pour into an area to help. A worse, the tragedy it seems the more the impetus to go help is. So. Again at those. If we didn't have these things in then, we wouldn't know that this other side of human nature exists. Thank you very much for sharing that oil one day in so at the open pops of the so the similar type references to the Odyssey and what are some of the more telling tiles that you share in sort of the book?.

Time a little bit and go back. To when you decided. You were going to write a book because I've looked at your bio. There's a lot going on there. Well. When I decided to write this particular book I had I got might be a with an emphasis in creative writings was actually working on a biography of my grandmother, and it just never went anywhere, because once I ran on a grandmother. I couldn't convert it into fiction. So after I was working on a an Ma, degree or MS, actually match science degree in link English as a second language, and the school ran out of work. Basically I had no summer job, and had the summer income, and I found a position publisher. So I was at that publisher for almost ten years I suspect, but it was quite a while, and I wanted to get back into writing, but I found i. had gotten quite rusty. I haven't written anything Muse and awakened at three in the morning. You know and that kind of shaky out of bed experience that sometimes happens so I took a writing course offered through my public library, discount and I am the instructors. All sterile I got nothing out of the course, except after the course broke up. I found myself in a writing group of former members of class, and just before the class broke up, I wrote this little three page I.
