"Doctor beach is out with his list of top U.S. public beaches for 2023. Saint George islands in 9 mile stretch of sugar white sand with clear gentle waves off the Florida Panhandle that draws this year's top honor as the nation's best beach. Professor Stephen Leatherman and Florida international university has been raiding America's public beaches for 33 years. He says the Florida islands unspoiled natural beauty, camping, water activities, and stargazing sets it apart. Connected by a bridge across Appalachia bay, famous for its oysters, the island contains a 2000 acre park at a small village with restaurants, rental homes and motels and not a whole lot else. Counting down from number 5 other top strands of sand include lighthouse beach in the outer banks, island state park in Florida.

Kyle Seraphin: George Floyd Square Is a 'No-Go' Zone for Enforcement
"So there's effectively just to sum up where we are before we move to the next step the angle to this There's a chop zone outside of Seattle essentially It's in Minnesota at this point And the chop zone is basically by any definition standard definition Basically an insurrection People are saying your rules don't apply here We own this You can not enforce American and state laws in Minnesota in here It's an insurrection by definition But where that zone is is quite interesting Why don't you describe that angle there So the zone is George Floyd square also known as saint George of fentanyl square So you can imagine why that is And I guess it's fairly well known that this area of Minneapolis This is the 38th street and Chicago area I'm told is just kind of a no go zone Like you just don't go in there and do enforcement actions Like I said they could pick up the dead That's pretty much what they're able to do So basic service is not really available to folks there And I'd love to hear if more people want to reach out to me on Twitter by all means if they have a personal experience I've got someone that's going to go do some recce work and take some photos over there in the next couple of days and kind of get us some on the ground truth from it
Victor Davis Hanson Compares Democrats and 18th Century Jacobins
"Latest piece on your website, the hour French Revolution, you open by stating a comparison between what is happening with the Democrat party and America today and the jacobins of 1793. Who were the jacobins and why do you locate the transmogrification of the Democrats into the jacobins to 2020? Well, they were, they were the jacobin clubs were a radical equality result. And hardcore violent revolutionaries. And they hijacked the revolution from the gear on this and maybe we could call the constitutional monarchist that wanted to get rid of the bourbons, but not in a violent way, just set up something analogous to British parliamentary constitutional governments. But robespierre and his brother, saint George, and others, they hijacked that revolution. Then it was a cultural revolution step, and that was what I was trying to point out. What did they do that we could recognize today? They destroyed statues. They renamed places. They rename the days of the week. They renamed the days of the month. They worshiped the God reason. They went after the Catholic Church. They liquidated their enemies. And for, I don't know, 18 months, they were untouchable. And then all of a sudden one day, the thermidor is just bang. The ambush them got them in arrested and they met the same fate that they had dished out to others. But the point I was making is that the Democratic Party was a political party. This woke whatever we want to call it party is a 360° cultural revolution.

"Down in and so kind of grew up there, fell in love with it. Related to half the town, you know how that is. Getting in trouble all the time because everybody knows who you are. But outside of that, it was just like finding pure joy was being surrounded by family for me. And really had a fascination with video. I really wanted to make Super Bowl commercials when I was a kid. Oh, really? Well. And I just was on that quest. And so I went through school. I got my degree in marketing and advertising gut. A couple of job offers in LA with some firms that create Super Bowl commercials and a couple in Chicago. And that was kind of the moment in my journey where my wife and I made a very big decision, which was, do we go follow our passions or dreams for a career? Or do we take a step for our family? And for me, I wanted my kids to grow up around grandma and grandpa and have their cousins be their best friends. Because that was really, really important to me. And so we were at a pivotal point. What do we do? And so we decided to stay in southern Utah and forgo that dream of working with some big agency world class agency. So when you can't work for a world class agency, you start your agency. And that's what I did at a school. I just started my own agency. And I was doing a lot of working with local businesses, helping them with their website. And so we were doing website getting some directories because that was back in the day the directory was pretty big and then some hosting companies that we owned. And basically built a digital empire helping just mama pops just capitalize on YouTube. On the Internet. But what's funny though was a lot of these businesses only had dial up. You've got to be on the Internet. You got to have a website. They're like, what? Okay, but yeah, we're a little slow down in southern Utah. But so that's kind of how it all started and then for me, there's a couple moments of clarity on where I should go. One was in 2005, I was on Craigslist because my company was expanding. We're looking to be frugal. So we're trying to get a free desk or something for the new workstation that we had to put up there. And I saw this ad for this brand new platform called YouTube. And they were going to give away an iPod. And I'm like, okay, I'm all in. Because the iPods are about the size of a brick at that time that Steve Jobs just said, hey, there's just a brand new iPod that's called iPad nano. It's like pack a gum. I'm all in. So I went to this website called YouTube didn't know what it was. And my jaw dropped. Because that was the first time I was able to see you could hit play and videos would actually play on the Internet. They didn't have to buffer all the way to the end before they started to play. And then I saw this really cool tool, this is in October 2005 that you could actually embed these videos on websites. The first thing for me as an entrepreneur, like, okay, this is an upsell. I can literally upsell every website that I've ever created. And have them put a video on their website. And so that happened for the next 2005, 2006 and into 2007. We made 865 videos. Gotten them all embedded on different companies. Yeah, this different company's mom and pop shops, doctors didn't lawyers, all that fun stuff. And just kind of embedded on their websites. And somehow magically, in 2007, when Google bought YouTube, that all those videos started to rank in Google search. So they'd outrank the websites that we actually had, put a lot of time energy effort to do. And I'm like, okay, saw the opportunity with video. And for me, it was like, okay, let's go ahead and not do website design anymore or not do SEO anymore and just focus in on video and YouTube and there's nobody really doing it and this is kind of the future and I always had a love and passion for video and that's where it started. And then later that year, we were just doing exclusively video. I had a client of mine that says, hey, there's a company down in saint George that are trying to sell pianos online and they need your help. And so I went down and met the owner of the piano store and he showed me a video that he made to showcase his piano and they're trying to sell these Yamaha grand pianos. And my jaw dropped. I was like, that's an amazing music video. How many pianos have you sold? He's like zero. Oh, man. But then the journey was over the next 18 months was to see kind of my passion and love of what I'm really good at. I feel like God's given me a couple gifts that helps me accelerate in this area, which is, you know, seeing seeing a content creator create content. And seeing audiences love that content and want to share it. And so over the next 18 months, this small piano store that had 10,000 subscribers got to 1.8 million subscribers about 230 million video views. That's the piano guys ever heard of them. Yeah, I was actually on a speaking on a cruise last January with them. And they told that story because I've always wondered why would they call the piano guys when they're at a store? But that's the name of the store, right? And so they'd get that brand and now they're very successful and because of those videos right? Yeah, and so that's kind of how it all started for me. And then that's when you have the serendipitous moment. Was when I was a young kid, I wanted to create Super Bowl commercials. And you want to figure out why. Why did I want to do that? Well, I wanted to actually create content that was funny and engaging that people talked about. Over weeks, if not months. And that was kind of my why. I was like, oh, I see where that's at. And then I realized that YouTube could be that vehicle to create content that could really elevate the world, bring joy into the world, bring light into the world. And then two with that, I'm able to feel satisfied in the sense of, hey, people are talking about it. People are sharing. And so that's kind of where my journey began and then outside of that, I met this a couple of producers down in California. And they had this sketch comedy show on this no name network called BYU television. And they're like, hey, we want to go on YouTube. And so I worked with studio C to get them kind of established and getting a rhythm and working with the complexities of the church because it's interesting. Let me tell you. Many other podcasts. It was one of those things that I'm like, okay, I'm glad I have a testimony. Of the truth most of Jesus. But anyway, I was able to see that. And they got a couple billion video views. And I literally was just bringing in content creators that I felt like contribute and that God gave them specific gifts to give to the world and YouTube was the platform. And since then, we did an 87 billion video views on YouTube and I can't even count how many channels that we've taken over a million subscribers. I know that 37 of them we started from just the idea. And implement it and go from there. So that's kind of how it all started for me. And then where it always into the chosen is on a conference where all these big YouTubers come in because they're like, hey, we want to learn about the business side of YouTube and all that other stuff. And I had, standing invitation that anyone that keynotes at one of my conferences could come for life. They can come for free for life if they ever want to come back. And one of the.

"Do with my radio program something like that. Yeah i think one of the The things that people wanna hear during fog when they come to a lighthouse is a foghorn. So and i shop. We have a hand hill. Vhf radio we can touch it off to of yes yes we do have a fog going. It doesn't work. I just think that's part of the cachet when you come to visit a absolutely agree So back to the work of your organization have or any other major restoration projects in recent years. That we haven't talked about no i. I won't count it as restoration but we finally decided that we needed a generator. And and so. That's that's coming next spring because as we all know everything is way way behind order. And i've offered the use of are generated to the coast guard because they use battery backup for for the light and we haven't heard anything back from him and other than that. I'm just trying to get the ban organized. An passive display. Don't know of anything on the on the plate that that we're we're going to do any major restorations. I think what you see is what you're getting and of course as you. well know. The coastguard is only responsible for the light and foghorn mash point lighthouse museum Committee is responsible for the upkeep of course the buildings and So i just just. Keeping in shape is a year round project. You guys to wonderful job. The place look so good you know i. I gave lighthouse tours for about eleven years in my minivan based here in portsmouth. And i usually brought people just as far as portland. But it will occasionally. I did midcoast maine tour and drove up to your area. And i brought number of people to to marshall point during those years and one thing i always did for them and they always thought it was a lot of fun was a way would stop at the town offices. The saint george town offices so people could take pictures of the life wider know-how ho if you could say life-size statue of a dragon. I don't know how big a dragon really is. But there are metal sculptures there of saint george fighting the dragon. Is there a little background. That i've never been sure why. It's the town And the peninsula. There came to be called saint george and i don't know if listeners know about saint george and the dragon the famous legend. Yeah okay a little little history lesson and nearly sixteen. Hundreds there was a captain from england. George weymouth who anchored between allen and benner islands and he named juan saint georgia saint george island while they were anchored there. They are on an exploration to see if there was any commercial potential. They run up the saint george river and so when the town got inc they just inherited the name of saint george and i think that and and i'm not sure he. The saint george is the patron saint or king. George was the king at the time when weymouth's did his explorations so That's how the saint george peninsula got. It's got its name and as you well know you pay taxes to the town of saint george. But they're a little villages pork. Lie martinsville kinda habur clark island smiley town little sections of the peninsula. So that gentleman. By the name of danny daniels Who sculptured and and metal medium and everything decided that he would would build this and give it to the town of saint george and where it is now as you will. Nope prominently displayed in town. Office complex. As as an aside. I i had a call the other day from a lady who has an osprey that Danny did and she wanted to know if we might like it up at Mashal point so we're in negotiations I've looked at it. I think it would be really neat to add out in the wild pratt long as we can get two feet down for the pedestal on it but hitting rock again. It's you know we're just not you know actual point late and everything about the lighthouse in its history where a history of the saint george peninsula. So when you come into the lighthouse you get a section devoted to the corey. You get a quilt. That was has Local scenes and That was done by the pork. Like baptist church get original cook stove. That was in the summer kitchen. Sardine factory the fishing and everything you know the keepers and we've got one to at least three of lonzo's That were part of of the light so It's all part of keeping the history of the peninsula and so it was a present selectmen now and in saint george but he kind of became a student of danny san and there are some of randi's Sculptures around i thinking in his dad's had come down one thirty one. You make you dear if you bear and and that was was randy's work but he kind of apprenticed and did with danny so that's that's a scope on me Saint george and the dragon and Obviously we're very proud of it. I'm glad you explain that. I was going to ask you about the other. Animal middle animal sculptures near there as curious about though so now i know thank you so back to the museum or were winding winding down here. Just got a couple more questions for you. Let me just ask about the the museum again. it's obviously seasonal because it is main and You can't really be open in the winter. But what is the season for the museum win and winners it open during the season. okay i mentioned before. I'll do it again. We we the board.

"saint george" Discussed on Leading Saints Podcast
"I'm looking at all these names of our board members who are no longer in their homes. And he said, I'm just, I just want to cry. And I felt the same way because they were gone. They weren't in our ward boundaries. They weren't in their homes. And so there's a loss of this sense of community when you can come together and face a crisis together, that looks different when you're scattered and some people did go with family and different states and different cities all across California. We were scattered. So it felt different. And I realized it's because these word boundaries mean something. It means we're a community and we're meant to be together. We're meant to be able to meet together. And having that taken away from us, literally and scattered it reinforced me how important that is. That sense of community. So it sounds like the first priority obviously making everybody making sure everybody's safe and then the second is like offering strength through community and gathering. And so how did you about what did that look like on the ground? You know, that was really difficult. And finally, I decided to with the help again, bishop and I thought this quorum, presidency. I started sending out text messages and using Facebook to let people know where we're at. And one of the fun things that we did is on Facebook, I said, okay, let's have everybody report in, where are you? What's happening? And just hearing from everyone, well, I'm at my aunt's house. And we had people respond that we never see a church at and of course, I just invite them. We keep them on there. The Facebook page anyway. And it's like a word Facebook group. Award Facebook page and they, you know, it was just nice to have that contact. So I tried to do more emails. And I think about that time or shortly thereafter. I began a different way of emailing because in the past, I usually just send a little page announcements. My secretary does that. And so we created something a little bit more friendly, more color. I use MailChimp and created something that I hoped would make people feel like, you know, we're communicating. We're still together. And so I think communication is key. Really, just to let people now we're here. And then the stake put together a couple of nights where we could go to the different buildings and the stake and collect items that evacuees might need. You might have forgot your toothpaste or, you know, our ward, this seems silly, but our word remembers this huge pile of pillows that people collected. And for some reason, we were just so grateful for those pillows because we were not, we didn't think to bring your pillow when you're evacuated. That takes a lot of room. And we were, we needed more pillows, so we were happy. So that was another way to gather also. For us to come and go and find those things that we might have missed. And I'm saying, we, I was able, I returned home after not too long being in saint George. I just couldn't stay. After I, after we had pretty much located everyone, I came and wanted to be with family. I just couldn't stay away. And so I went to some of those gatherings at the stake center and do you have any knowledge as far as some of those supplies and things that church humanitarian step in and was that a place for them? Or where did this I mean, if you needed a pillow or a toothpaste, like, where did that come from? Our stake, I'm going to get emotional. Our stake was so supportive. I've heard stories of people fighting over linens and target because they wanted to donate those to evacuees. So our ward had first pick at was just from our stake members. That's all. And they gathered so many things that in our word had first pick and we took what we needed and the people who lost their homes had private shopping time and then the rest went to other evacuees in the valley. That's awesome. Really cool. Anything else around the concept of gathering that you seem to work? For us to work, we did have some community gatherings. We were actually under pandemic lockdown in California. We weren't even supposed to be in our we weren't supposed to have more than 8 people in our buildings at a time at one point. So we kind of just didn't pay attention to some of those things. We did meet outside and we tried to do what we could. But we had a lot of people scattered. So our gatherings were very small, but our community had a gathering. A huge gathering of everyone in the community and a lot of the word members went. And found each other. And it just felt really good. So somehow to get work around whatever the obstacles are, it's important for people to gather. And I think because we didn't have as many opportunities to gather as we could have, we're now in the kind of the healing and recovery stage. I think it would have helped us heal and recover faster. Had we been able to group together an award meeting directly after the crisis and just talk about our experiences and know that we're going to loan. And so emotional trauma that some of us experienced. You know, I have some close friends up in Alaska and a few years ago, they had a pretty significant earthquake there. And they said that following fast and testimony meeting, there's this feeling everybody had a sort of stand up until their earthquake story, right? But as human beings are sort of this healing nature of coming together as a community and saying, this is what I experienced. What did you experience? And then just creates this natural empathy that heals so much, right? So it's almost like creating that venue. And now maybe with less restrictions or whatnot, you can maybe gather people more closely or in rooms or split them up in groups and say, just talk about your experience because that can be extremely healing. It can be. And one thing that I did not really anticipate after everything kind of settled down, I thought, we're done, yay. Got through that. What I didn't realize is how many people really needed that time to gather they need more tools to heal, we have them. We have people who, when they're smoke in the air now, it is frightening to them. Or when there's a helicopter that goes overhead. So in a number of people are hyper vigilant about their fire safety around their home. There's just a lot. There's some I call it emotional trauma. I don't know what else to call it. It comes when you are forced out of your home and you don't know if you're going to have a home to return to. Yeah, that's part of it. It's not just leaving your home for a few days. You don't know if it's going to be ash by the time it comes back. By the time you come back, right? Exactly. Wow, that's heavy. Next principle is you have to talk about having these moments of inadequacy as a lead. This is a serious thing that you can't just carry a few leadership books and be prepared for, but that you felt that that grace of God baking up the difference.

"Twitter and facebook and google censored even the duly elected sitting president of the united states showing where power really lies in this country. An important part of my book speechless controlling words controlling minds. I also have to mention another book by the way. This has been a big year for me and books with words before that. I was only focused on books without words but focused on books with words. I was very honored to be asked to write the introduction to god and man at yale got and man at yale the first book by william f buckley junior it is widely credited with starting the conservative movement. It's an attack on atheism and communism in the academy at sort of the og book on this topic. The subtitle is the superstitions of academic freedom. It's a it's a terrific book. And i was very honored to be able to to write the introduction to the seventieth anniversary edition to me. This is very encouraging for the conservative movement. Because it shows that. I think that the conservative movement. Broadly is recognizing the errors of the past couple of decades receiving needs to return to tradition. We need to return to a more muscular beefy substantive conservatism and so i'm i'm really honored and happy to be part of that. You can get that book right now. Amazon is not really letting it show up in the search results too much so if you to get it i've got links on my twitter and things like that but you can also if you searched on amazon god and many yale. I just when you order the search instead of pre order price. Low to high price high to low pre order. You know average reviews. Click on newest arrivals and then that'll pop up at the top of shipping right now really a happy to do a great great admirers of Bill buckley some. I'm really pleased about all of that So that's that's where the conservative movement stands very excited very encouraging but we've still got a huge uphill battle because the left is going to try to cheat the we're fighting back on that with election integrity laws. The left is going to try to censor fighting back on that by trying to rein in these corporations finally will we be successful. We'll find out and the other way they tried to cheat is by flooding the country with illegal aliens but even that is not going particularly well for democrats. It's it's difficult to date and identify the remains of people who died trying to sneak into our country but it appears that twenty twenty last year of the trump administration was the deadliest year in the history southern border until this past year the border patrol agents have have already found two hundred fifty three people near the us. Mexico border that's That was last year rather this year that they've already found just ridge july. They found three hundred eighty three. That's one hundred fifty. One percent increase year isn't even close to done yet. That's really bad news for biden because at least trump was trying to reduce the number of illegal aliens. Coming through joe biden is trying to increase it. He's encouraging people to come across in has encouraged people to come across. And we're this is supposed to be nice right. This is supposed to be compassionate. Doesn't look compassionate to me. You've got the decomposing bodies of illegal aliens coming. Desperate people coming through. Because crass and opportunistic and cynical politicians like joe biden or calling for it. Do you think that's going to look good. I don't think so. I think it's another optics. Failure for the biden administration and it's an optics failure because not because it's getting the appearance of something that isn't true. It's because we're seeing the reality of what these policies look like a total failure on every count really bad news for biden sad for america right now but potentially encouraging for the future.

"Was not stolen will admit if especially if you bradley It was obviously rigged in pennsylvania. They violated the state constitution to conduct the election. They sent out the widespread mail and votes. Which even obama said is is a grave threat to election integrity. Some places poll-watchers were not allowed a ton of access. The the the count was halted. It was strange took days and weeks. There was double counting. That went on just in georgia just in one place. We looked for it so yeah there were big problems of course good news on that front to texas just passed an election integrity bill the bill just instituted a ban on drive thru voting just instituted a ban on round the clock. Voting added an idea requirement for mail in and absentee ballots. That's good established a training program for poll-watchers who can now be more active in monitoring the process. They don't have to stay locked in their chair. It requires a texas secretary of state to maintain consistently updated voter rolls so that when people believe texas for a few people are doing that today. Anyway you in california when people leave a state. They're not permitted to continue to receive a vote to continue to receive a ballot. This is good if anything. I think that this election integrity. Bill is a little too modest. I wish it went much further. What it did is restore commonsense election integrity measures that we had to even a couple of years ago in most places. But it's a good start if we have measures like that throughout the country then. I think that it'll be much harder for democrats to cheat. I think if the election is free and fair in twenty twenty two i think republicans are going to do extremely well even on the allegedly controversial issues like texas abortion even on those issues. The republican policies are popular. There's another poll out. I'm always skeptical of bowls especially as most polls skewed democrat kaz social social science and statistics generally skews in that direction. It comes from statistics from state isn't right from the state but neither here nor there. I'll i'm happy to cite polls when they back up what. I'm what i'm hoping for. And there's a pole in texas. That shows that the plurality of voters support the texas abortion law according to a rasmussen survey rasmussen is a right-leaning poll from but they got a great record. A plurality of voters support the pro-life law in texas. And it's forty six percent support the law compared to forty three percent who oppose the law. This is mostly on party. Lines of seventy percent of republicans. Support it sixty nine percent. Democrats oppose it and plurality of independence supported as well forty four percent. So we're not saying it's the majority. It'd be better if it were the majority. But it is the plurality in terms of opinions on the law the pro life pro the pro pro pro-life law position contains the most people and so in that environment. The only option is to censor to censor and sheet. And that's what they're doing right now. Twitter just suspended the official press account of jd vance jd. Vans is running for senate in ohio. He's running on a very trad conservative platform at our. I don't know how else to put it. He's the author of hillbilly elegy. And he's ditching. The kind of chamber of commerce wall street just lower taxes and let the left run the culture kind of talking points that we've heard from republicans over recent decades. He's leaning much more into social issues much more into cultural issues much more to working class. Appeal people are accused of being inauthentic. Here i'm not making a comment one way or the other. I'm just pointing out. That's where his campaign is going and the left sees that is the genuine threat. The left is not threatened by libertarians. The left is not threatened by neoconservatives. They're just not because in many ways they share this. they all share the same premises. The left is threatened by a traditional conservative appeal to the american people to to the american worker in particular so they booed him off. Jd's personal data still up there but the press account is going. Jd says no warning. No explanation of what rules allegedly broke. But this is what happens when we allow five companies to control what we're allowed to say. And he's right he's right and you kind of knew this would happen by the way. So there are the court jester conservatives the deeds say well just build your on twitter. Well what if you don't like that. Google is controlling are all of the speech and our public. Swear i'm well maybe you should build your own google. Even though google by the way is is part of the government. Getting google and the government have many business interests together they. The government has helped to fund parts of google. Google is operating as a sort of proxy arm of the government especially with regard to censorship. So if you run for office but you don't threaten any entrenched interests even as a republican. You're probably fine. You're a clown you're you know you'll be fine in terms of pushback but if you run and you actually threaten these companies and these entrenched interests then they're gonna go after you. Jd put a well. He said i'm a senate candidate in ohio. This was my campaign account to me. This election interference multinational corporation. Making it harder for me to communicate with the people of ohio. Absolutely true you saw. This happened on january seventh.

"Okay. Then who cares. Then who cares. There's nothing to do ride. It's joe biden undermines argument okay. There's no that's just the way it is. There is an unfixable irredeemable. It's done okay. All right then. Whatever man weight off my shoulders. I don't need to worry about recycling anymore. Anything because it's already here. So who cares. I guess the same. Mr of white supremacy. There is according to cnn. Literally nothing you can. You can kill all the white people you can give all of their property and all of their power to black people it will still be white supremacy. Okay so i'm just not worried about it then because there's nothing we can do. Of course. I mean it's preposterous. But this actually. The the phrase critical race theory is somewhat overused but this is a good example of critical race theory because critical race theory is is a marxist lens to attack all american and really western history and it's really tied up also in in economics so so some of the foundational essays of critical race theory will say that our system of private property in the united states is part of white supremacy communists systems not white supremacist but capitalism white supremacist. And they put that in the cnn article to cuba has a complex history with race. Racism is often described as a relic of capitalism in communist countries. This is very funny is. Cuba is pretty racist. Okay visited cuba cuba but they don't. There's there sexual ten or sexual racial tensions there as well but it's communist country and it has been for sixty years so What's going on there. Oh okay that's why it's a relic of capitalism okay. all the bad stuff is a relic of capitalism. All the good stuff is part of communism. All the bad stuff in society is white people even when there are no white people left and all the good stuff is black people even if white people did some of it. Okay okay that makes sense okay. Is this persuading anybody. Is anybody looking at this article. And saying yes. Larry elder he is he is a clansman. He is just like robert byrd. Senator byrd who was a democrat. But who's who was secretly a republican probably does anyone by that. I can't imagine that they do. And i think the democrats actually are getting a little bit. Nervous gavin newsom facing a recall threat from that black face of white supremacy last month. He spent more than thirty six million dollars fighting. This recall effort. This included a ton of tv ads. I'm talking to my friends. Who are who are in california. You're being inundated with gavin newsom ads a lot of phone banking lot of door knocking lot of texting the five top republicans who are running to replace newsom. And the pro recall committees combined spent less than a third as much over the same period of time. They also face certain limits on their spending. Where's gavin newsom does not. That's one way in which the election is rigged so he obviously is worried as he should be and by the way there there are so much rigging going on right now in the california election. So you've seen the ballots that went out with holes poked in them and the whole presumably extensively for sorting purposes or whatever for some security measure that eludes a lot of people but the way that the circles that are punched out or aligned on the envelope they go exactly over the yes circle for yes recall governor news of someone votes to recall newsom in many cases. You can see it from from the outside the envelope. Just a coincidence. I'm sure right i. I know many people personally who have gotten multiple ballots because of widespread automatic mail an in this election. I think i got a ballot. I believe a number of my friends who moved to tennessee. Who have who have requested notch to receive about. They've received ballots to because the democrats are trying to cheat and even still they're terrified. They're going to lose. Why because the democrats generally are collapsing. In terms of public opinion. Joe biden's approval ratings are in freefall in not just not just nationally but in seven key congressional districts. This is a really bad is according to a poll from the american action network That that americans are really not pleased with this in seven key district very important because we're not just looking at the recall in california right now. We're not just looking at twenty twenty four. We're looking at twenty twenty two if republicans can take back the house and hopefully the senate but even just the house then then much of the biden agendas dead the most radical aspects of it are dead much like have suggested. The president seems to be its own. There's no there's no chance that they will pass so so. This is their last shot to make things happen. And unfortunately the democrats agenda right now is not very popular now. The the the key question is going to be. Will the elections be fair. Will they be free. Will they be fair in. Twenty twenty two. The elections were not fair in twenty twenty. The democrats rigged the elections by taking away election integrity measures. Okay even the republicans who say it was not stolen. Nothing was stolen. Don't ever say it was stolen totally fair but nearby and every all the votes in the history of the world even those republicans who are very insistent that.

"The european union right now is threatening to withhold one hundred fifty million dollars from poland. And it's all over the same issue that keeps cropping up the sexual revolution so poland. Recently number of areas in poland areas and towns have said that. They're free of the lgbtq ideology. They're not saying they're free of gay people. They're not saying they're they're persecuting people who have different sexual desires and behaviors and things like that. They're just saying. The lgbt ideology the ideology. That says there's no difference between men and women the ideology that says that you must pursue any desire you have whatsoever the ideology that says that you're not allowed to hold anything resembling traditional view of marriage or sexuality. We're ridding ourselves of that. In favor of something else. Boland is a catholic country traditionally wh- at the fall of the soviet union. What was one of the big events that caused the fall of the soviet union. Pope john paul. The second shows up and in this soviet occupied awful you know poor oppressed people million people. Show up and set chant. We want god we want. God this is. This is a place that has been saving western civilization going back to the battle of vienna. At least okay and what they're saying is look. We have this view. That's a christian view and so we don't want to have the view that's this radical leftist view and now the european union which is a liberal empire it's christian pirates liberal empire is saying okay. Then we're going to cut you off 150-million-euro we're not we're not doing it. This is relating to what we were talking about with afghanistan. Okay there were a lot of conservatives who said we should pull out of afghanistan because we don't know what we're doing there. What are we doing in abroad. Up a debate over nationalism versus imperialism or read is gonna focus at home us spread our empire abroad and then even on the empire what is our empire and its liberal empire. Thing it's about you know a pride flags and kantar think it's about that's that's what it became it became about all these sort of liberal ideas and people don't like that afghanistan. I don't think likes that very much. The taliban certainly don't like that. I think the taliban or finally going to lose the support of liberals. Do you know why not because of what they're doing to women or not even not because of what they're doing to americans or anything like that. They they committed an unforgivable sin. The taliban painted over a mural of george floyd did oh you all your we're probably gonna end up nuking. The taliban before the day is three you can't you can do a lot but you can't paint over a mural of george saint george no there there's actually a very good reason why they're painting over the mural. It's funny that it's ridiculous that there are murals to george floyd. But the reason they're painting over the mural as george. Floyd is a symbol of western imperialism. Crazy is that is to say. George floyd and the rainbow flag which they flew over the embassy in kabul. Those are the new symbols of western empire. And we think that's weird here in the west because in many ways those are symbols that are meant to undermine the christian west. The the george floyd neural the b. Alam ideology is is an ideology that states that the west is evil or at the pride flag is a is a symbol that says that christianity is wrong. it's a symbol that says our traditional views of sex or wrong and yet those are both still symbols of the west. they're not associated with any other civilization and they're making universal claims about every place on earth including afghanistan. Which is why they don't like it no doubt. Cnn is going to accuse the taliban of white supremacy they these these pashtun militants they're such white separate pashtun white supremacists. Well they actually are making that argument indirectly right now. Cnn had a piece out. This is a real doozy. I don't recommend people go look at cnn. Usually but you gotta you gotta look at this one white supremacy with a tan. That's the title of you. Saw the first volley Couple of weeks ago when the l. a. times called larry elder the black face of white supremacy and now. Cnn is getting on board and they're saying that White supremacy is just same betted in the fabric of america that even when black people get a lot of political power more than they have now it will still be white supremacy they said. Don't ever underestimate white. Supremacist -bility to adapt the assumption. That more racial diversity equals more racial. Equality is a dangerous myth. Racial diversity can function as a cloaking device concealing the most powerful forms of white supremacy while giving the appearance of racial progress. Racism will likely be just as entrenched in in a browner. America's it is now it will still be white supremacy with tan so you see even if every political office is held by black people even if whites are second or third class citizens even if american knocks down every statue of every white person and all the statues are black even then it will be white supremacy white supremacy through black people. This is sort of like joe. Biden's climate change claim. Ri- joe biden. Says look were. Climate change is so bad. We can't even stop it if climate change is already here. We're living.

"And wife remarried and a single mother. For instance should both of those types of people be treated equally when they're trying to adopt. I don't think so. I think it's better for the baby to have a mother and father. What about a mother and a father and a mother and a mother or mother and a father and a father and a father should both of those types of couples be treated equally. I don't think so. Because i think men and women actually are different and i think both actually have something to contribute to raising a child and i think that we erase women. Were we erase men. When we say it doesn't matter. There's there's no difference. It's it's all just the same you're just parent number one and number two and furthermore. There's no evidence that they actually adopted. We don't know that it's adoption. It may have just been that. They went through a clinical process of in vitro fertilization whereby they shopped for an egg and they purchased an egg from one woman and then they rented the womb of another woman and then they intentionally deprived a child of his natural mother two children. Potentially that's really bad to folks. And i'm glad that it put a smile on people to judge his face. I actually am not even. I'm not even being facetious here but there are other bioethical concerns here and what when we just accept this willy nilly will. We are saying effectively. Is there's no role for a mother in a child's life. It's all just the same. There's no difference between men and women and sure maybe the child will never never get to hold his mother and anyone who's ever had a kid can see the difference. Okay between a kid re reacting to his mother and a kid reacting to his father and he needs both and it's a fallen world and sometimes a mother dies and sometimes a father dies and sometimes kids are robbed of these things but we don't need to encourage that certainly not to satisfy our own longings that that for whatever reason or or not being fulfilled that data is added is not an ethical thing to do. That's not a moral thing to do. And as i guess this relates to the abortion debate. In as much as it's very easy to ignore what is best for someone who cannot express himself like an unborn baby. You're like little little newborn baby for that matter but we really ought to take that in consideration. Unfortunately our society doesn't think that way anymore. That's not that's not the way we look at an increasingly. The society is very intolerant of the traditional viewpoints of basically everyone on earth. That says maybe this isn't the best thing we can't see clearly these. We don't have blocks glasses. I love blue blocks blue.

Leiden was sued after refusing to license the group's music for inclusion in Danny Boyle's upcoming biopic series Pistol. Following the verdict, Leiden issued a lengthy statement. Claiming that he didn't know about the proposed use of the sex pistols music in the new series until until just a few hours before it was announced, and he had no idea how the band would be portrayed in it. Well. Jones and Cook have now issued a statement saying No, no, not so much. Come on. Despite Lydon's comments on his website, we reiterate the fact that he was informed of the Pistols TV series offered meetings with the director and to be involved in the show months before. Any principal photography began. He refused these offers and we were saddened. That he would not engage and at least have a conversation with the director Danny Boyle, and the co showrunner Greg Pierce. Okay?

A broken system, a broken city: Beirut
"In Beirut yesterday countless people began the painful work of fixing homes devastated by a massive explosion on Tuesday. One woman who'd mlk posted a video of her mother-in-law playing the piano as others swept up broken glass. The music is bittersweet, the city is reeling. The moment of the blast no one was quite sure what had happened there was a deep bass sound for seven or eight seconds there was a rumbling. and. We thought it was a localized explosion, maybe a gas main that had blown up across the street or a car bomb in the neighborhood. Greg Carlstrom is our Middle East correspondent. I A cafe. everyone, of course, left the cafe and started making their way home and it was only on the way back down towards the three Indian towards the ports that I started to realize the scale of the damage. There was, of course, broken glass everywhere carpeting, all of the streets all at the sidewalks pass through an intersection where there were several women sitting in the median holding cloth scraps of fabric bleeding from the head they'd obviously been hit by glass. And every building that you pass by not only the windows blown out but the aluminum window frames blown off. So. You realize that this was not a localized incident, but rather something that had affected the entire city center. The blast was felt as far away as Cyprus it registered as an earthquake in Jordan. It had come from the port of Beirut or something had set off an explosion of staggering size sending up a white mushroom cloud then a vast bloom of orange smoke. Yesterday the government placed a number of court officials under house arrest and again investigation. Declared a two weeks state of emergency. Residents are still coming to grips with the shock of the blast. Felt like it went inside us like a best our soul the way. I saw something bright and I lost my hearing for few seconds. An explosion just went out. The human toll of the explosion has been catastrophic the death toll officially more than one hundred so far, and that number continues to grow as rescue workers find victims who were buried in the rubble more than five thousand people injured by the blast and many of them had to go into a hospital system that was already stretched thin. We've had a spike in corona virus cases in Lebanon over the past few weeks, some hospitals themselves were damaged by the explosion hospital Saint George Hospital across the street from where I live. was so badly damaged that it had to halt operations and when I went by the hospital, you saw patients some of them still wearing their hospital gowns with intravenous lines in their arms bloodied from flying debris and shrapnel for nurses were killed. Fifteen patients on respirators died when the machines failed the other immediate impact is according to officials in Lebanon about three hundred thousand people were left homeless by the explosion. About five percent of the population of the entire country and what do we know so far about what caused the explosion? It seems to be the result of unbelievable negligence even on the scale of the perennially negligent Lebanese government back in two thousand thirteen customs officials in Lebanon confiscated the cargo of a Russian ownership that was traveling to Mozambique. The cargo was two, thousand, seven, hundred, fifty tons of ammonium nitrate, which is highly explosive chemical that is used mostly to make either fertilizers or explosives from mining and quarrying and other industrial uses. So this material was confiscated, it was put in a warehouse at the port and for six or seven years it just south there there was some talk of maybe exporting the stuff for giving it to the army to use but this required approval from the Lebanese judiciary that approval never came you've had officials at the ports and with insecurity agencies who warned this was tantamount to keeping a giant bomb on the doorstep of the country's capital. Those warnings went unheeded and of course, tragically on Tuesday it all exploded but I mean what kind of government would ignore warnings about tons and tons and tons of explosive material just sitting in a city centre the Lebanese government would it's almost par for the course for Lebanon's political class. This is the government that for more than a decade could not agree on a budget. This is the government that for almost thirty years allowed the same central banker to run the Central Bank Lubin, and to run effectively state-sanctioned Ponzi scheme to defend the currency peg it's a country that created a political and economic model that was totally unsustainable. Invested hardly at all in basic services even in good times, Lebanon can't provide twenty four hour electricity routinely struggles to pick up the trash piles up in the streets. It is a perennially negligent government and this is of course, a catastrophic example of that but it's of a piece with the behavior of this government over the past thirty years. So this is a population economy that was suffering quite a bit even before the blast it was the country has been slipping into a profound economic crisis since October the the currency. Lebanese. Pound which for decades has been pegged to the dollar. Began to break away from that since October? It's lost about eighty percent of its value on the black market which has contributed to runaway inflation in a country that imports almost everything from food and fuel to consumer goods. So, inflation running around eighty percent right now and for food around two hundred percent prices have become astronomical this summer we've had fuel shortages that have caused blackouts in Beirut normally three hours a day stretch as long as twenty hours a day this summer and the backup generators that people rely on to provide electricity when the state cannot those are either burning out from overuse or running out of fuel just one crisis after another point. which has led to widespread poverty in the country the the official figures the government thinks around half the country is now below the poverty line that could rise as high as seventy five percent. By the end of the year, there's been a spike in petty crime driven simply desperation. There was one man who was caught on TV robbing a pharmacy for diapers another man who robbed someone at knifepoint on the streets and a once busy part of town, and then came back to apologize for doing it and said, he he needed the money to his family. So it sounds a a years long problem has gotten really quite a lot worse very recently mean why hasn't the government been able to sort of keep things from getting so much worse? The current government was installed in January meant to be a technocratic government that would tackle this economic crisis and negotiate a rescue agreement with the IMF but. Six or seven months later it's made almost no progress. The negotiations with the IMF have really stalled at this point they've had about twenty rounds of talks. But is not even really negotiating with the IMF yet it's still negotiating with itself. You have the cabinet on one side. And the parliament on the other backed up by the banking sector. which are having this very arcane dispute about the scale of the losses in Lebanon's financial sector about how bankrupt the country is effectively. And so you have this surreal situation where instead of Lebanon negotiating with the IMF Lebanon is negotiating with Lebanon. The Fund has told Lebanon that talks are not going to advance unless there's an agreement on the size of the losses or if the cabinet pushes through a few meaningful reform of capital controls, law changes to the electricity sector things like that. Neither of these things have happened and there are increasing calls for the government to step down. Do you think that's the way forward I? Mean, what do you think should be done here to to bring Lebanon back to? A functional state though the problem is if this government steps down what replaces this government and a lot of the pressure on the government right now is is coming from the traditional powerbrokers in Lebanon the sectarian X. warlords who have divvied up power in this country for decades since the end of the civil war in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, this power sharing agreement they have it was designed to keep the peace and prevent a return to conflict after the war. But it's been captured by the. Hands up power based on sect, which runs a massive patronage network The World Bank estimates that it costs the country about nine percent of its GDP each year but if it were to step down without broader changes to the country's political system in this power, sharing system would simply be replaced by the same cast of characters who have ruined the country over the past thirty years. But that power sharing system was was there to to keep the peace to prevent a return to civil war, and that was the argument for years for decades when people in Lebanon would complain about the corruption and. The negligence and the inefficiency of their government, the response would be well at least this is better than a return to the bad old days even before what happened on. Tuesday even before the explosion though that argument was beginning to lose its weights with a lot of people here you have a younger generation of Lebanese who don't have the same memory of course of the civil war that their parents or their grandparents had, and so as the country slipped further and further into crisis over the past year, people have been more willing to to break away from this system than they were before. And I think the argument that well, there could be violence if the power-sharing system was stripped away after what happened on Tuesday after half of Beirut was destroyed by the incompetence of this government I think that argument is not going to carry with a lot of people.
Protests Become Fertile Ground for Online Disinformation
"Protesters in New York City last night, counted down to an eight PM curfew and defied it. Donald Trump has called in the military to clamp down on protests that continued across the United States and police presence was heavy, but the demonstrations last night were largely peaceful. The city of Philadelphia also continues to be under curfew after several days of protests and looting, and as in many other cities, we've seen images of police advancing on protesters, shooting, tear gas and firing rubber bullets. The Associated Press calculates that across the United States. At least ninety three hundred people have been arrested since the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

Saints of Spain; David Suchet Footsteps of St. Paul; Michelangelo In Florence
"Whether you're looking at Michelangelo's magnificent statue of David or you get caught up in a ruckus crowd at a street festival in Spain or even if you just listen to the wind whisper. What life was once like among the sun bleached ruins of the Mediterranean? Your travels can lift your spirit in many ways. Hi I'm Rick Steves in just a bit. We'll take a closer look at the world. Michelangelo lived in influence. Five hundred years ago and actor. David Suchet tells us how he retraced the route that Saint Paul traveled through the eastern Roman Empire. Nearly two thousand years ago. Let's start the hour with a look at how people in Spain honor the lives of important figures from their past. There are actually hundreds of national and regional saints in Spain. And you'll find that many of them get a festival that brings their communities out into the streets to celebrate to explain the role of Saint in the culture of Spain. We're joined now by tour guides or hate Roman from Madrid and Francisco Gloria from pump. Lona or Hey in Francisco. Happy Easter Thank. You thank you so. Spain is a Catholic country in in the church is a huge part of the political and spiritual past. To what extent is the Catholic Church? Still a big part of Spanish society. Today it is. I mean now. The government that we have now is very conservative and they relates a political issues with the church. Not Everybody is happy about that but still part of it and also the most of the celebrations in Spain national holidays. They advocated saints. Lady's name names. I think a lot how. How does the naming of children work compared to the Catholic faith? I mean you're or hey your Cisco do they have any with your parents. Passion for Saints a Whole Mike. As many Ms Francis Xavier because your middle name is executive because for some frantic savior was born in my town so and he was the first Jesuit Right. He was one of the founders of Jesuits Yep okay main signatures which is a very common name. Ignatius and Francisco Xavier. That's a common name where you come from pump loan and actually my name is the ACLU into English degeorge and is the only saint in the Catholic Church actually wasn't a saint also warrior that killed the Dragon Saint George killing the Dragon. Yeah it wasn't saying actually but so there are a lot of festivals when you travel in and almost all of them seem to be related to the church. Talk about a couple of the the great festivals in the Saints Days. That are important in your life in your travels Francisco I am from component the running of the Bulls on what we celebrate. The death of Seinfeld mean so. It's like huge huge celebration. That week starts July six hundred ends July fourteenth saint for me and I. You wouldn't even know who saint for me unless you went to. The running of the Bulls and pump. Lana developed comes from employees. They don't even know who he is attacked because everybody wears the red Kerchief around their neck and when people go to the running of the Bulls they wear this red neckerchiefs symbolism planet. We are under two hundred thousand people. I didn't know we. We welcome one million people and everybody's wearing white unread and nobody knows why like. Excuse me you do get excuse me. I'M A tour guide. I want to explain to you why. You're wearing this red handkerchief. That was the first person that was baptized employees and they cut his head for the recent. So what we represent the white outfit Represents Holiness and the Redmond nights the blood coming out of his neck so he was an early Christian. Pump Loner who was beheaded. Yes he was. We hit it. We say that he was beheaded any Pamplona although history tells us that he was beheaded in France. But Hey ho hey. From Madrid what festivals would impact a traveler when that we should know about quite Madrid? Not Maniacs you say but there is one very close which is Toledo the Corpus Christi is the big the there in Corpus Christi in Toledo is and that's the the corporate the body the body of Christ that's correct. Yeah and that's the Big Day in Toledo and they do bring some things to parade around. And he's part of a could be the equivalent of the beaches. Pelton SPAIN LIKELY. You have here states them. They're very conservative in there. That's interesting because in the United States We've got a region called the Bible Belt in Spain. Is there a region that would be the Bible belt get could be the political? Be One of them if you go around. Let's say like half Mouche from Madrid to the West from Madrid to the West Toledo Arbella. Salunke that part of your Browning what do you? What is your image of being? We'll have to think that we had the Muslim heritage Muslim heritage started to come down of it from the north down. Thanks Community Santos on James. Drake has just for the historic context. The Muslims came in and took over Spain and Portugal in from the eighth century until fourteen. Ninety two a good part of Spain was ruled by Muslim overlords. And then for centuries there was the RECON keystone reconquering has finally fourteen ninety two. The last Muslim was pushed out of Granada and back into Africa. What I make the difference that the Community Santiago okay. The origin was by the coast and it was the beginning of the Spanish reconquista. So this is the Camino Santiago. This is the big pilgrimage trail that cuts across from France all the way across north Spain the major city in the north west of Spain Santiago de Compostela. They'll go and How what's the historical roots for this pilgrimage? Because thousands and thousands of people make this high out there still do it people at the beginning they did it by the coast so those kingdoms those ancient kingdoms there the realize that whatever was going there were no Muslims so th would they decided to push it south and south and south and south until the Camino we know today so I am from the north in the north we barely have any Muslim heritage. We were more Christine. Must time before. But if you go down to under Lucia there you find. Churches generally built upon a mosque. Correct and mosque was built upon a church than they destroyed. If you go to civilian you see them at Nickerson Tarver. A Cathedral Tower actually was the minaret of the old mosque. So there's this layering of history. And what's very poignant to me? Is We hear about people. Being beheaded today in this struggle of fanatic Islam and Christians and so on but if you go to a church in southern Spain it's very common to see a man on a horse with a big sword cutting off the heads of Muslims and at the feet of the Horse. There's six or eight heads of beheaded Muslims as correct. Lose this man that is son James. The son teams we're representing three ways bishop as more slayer the more slayer so his. His nickname was saint. James the slater the more killer. Well enter the Moore's for the Muslims. Yeah most of our lives and today's politically incorrect. So we're beginning to cover those heads on the floor seriously. Some of those old statues and paintings are getting with put flowers well enough so you hide them so you hide you see a guy on a white horse with a sore but every time a Christian is just so disgusted by a Muslim fanatic. That cut off one of his people's heads we've got to remember. This is nothing new in history Spanish. I consider myself Catholic. We've been the worst ever I mean. We've inquisition the request. We have expelled. The Jews I mean with excuse of religion with Don's much bad. The inquisition is Sort of gift of Spain to the rest of Europe. What gave yeah. I poisoned gift. Would you describe the The inquisition you see the palace don't you out l. escorial that's right correct. What is the inquisition? Mean to to church history It's a sad episode. I mean this might personal opinion. Very site I mean also gave us practical thing. But it's a very very sad history. Every time I talk to them to my travelers about inquisition unites ties with Catholic moral and they kept going on.
African Methodist Episcopal Church founded - April 9, 1816
"The day was April ninth eighteen sixteen. The African Methodist Episcopal Church was founded the Ame. Church as it's known was the first organized denomination and the US to be formed by black people. The AME church has its roots in the Free African society an organization that provided aid to newly freed black people in the US. Preachers Richard Allen and Absalom Jones as well as other people in Philadelphia forms organization in the seventeen eighty s facing discrimination. At Saint George's Methodist Episcopal Church in Philadelphia. A group of black congregants decided to leave the church. Most of them wanted to affiliate with the Protestant Episcopal Church since they did not want to align with the methodist who persecuted them so the Free African society opened the Saint. Thomas African Episcopal Church with Jones as the head but Allen led a small group of people who wanted to remain this in seventeen ninety four the BETHEL African Methodist Episcopal. Church was dedicated into service in seventeen ninety. Nine Bishop Francis Asbury of the Methodist Episcopal Church ordained Richard Alan. As minister BETHEL's Allan. White Methodist leaders develop the founding document of BETHEL Ame but as membership in the church grew so did tensions between the black people in the church in white authorities. The ladder attempted to limit. Bethel's independence doing things like threatening to prevent her to meetings. They still considered to be an entity that existed within Saint George's and therefore subject to its authority but Alan continued to advocate for African methodist independence. Even as white methodist escalated the tactics that they use to oppose the churches authorities. He turned to an attorney who advised him to add an African supplement to churches founding document. This supplement said that. Bethel's trustees rather than the methodist conference control the Church's property. It also says that if the pastor at Saint George's did not fulfil his preaching and Sacramento obligations. The trustees would call on someone else. On top of Allen's efforts BETHEL members rejected the actions of Saint George's ministers who attempted to assert their authority by eighteen sixteen BETHEL had around fourteen hundred members in the beginning of that year the validity of Allen's African supplement was challenged in the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. Alan emerged victorious in the case with a court. Affirming BETHEL's independence and Allen's right to self-determination as a pastor James Champion a minister at Bethel Daniel Coker obliged methods in Baltimore wrote a treatise about the rise of African methodism with and Allen encouraged their congregations to form a denomination April ninth eighteen sixteen Allen and coker called it black methodist to meet in Philadelphia.
