'United We Pledge' Is Recreating an American Village in Alabama

"Now, I want to ask you, so you're saying that united we pledge already has something called the American village in montevallo, Alabama, because I had not heard about this till today. No, no, what I'm saying is that Montebello Alabama is an American village. And the united we pledge has partnered with a company called balance of nature and they've procured about 40 acres of land in Utah that they're going to recreate an American village there. That's what I'm saying. So there is an American village in Alabama already. Yes. But I had not heard about this. I want to go to montevallo, Alabama now that I've literally not heard about this. And you should. I hadn't heard about it either until they brought it up, and then when they brought it up to me and they came up with this idea of me running from Montevideo Alabama to saint George, you don't have to break around for this thing. You know, I think that we have a whole mind body, right? You have your gut, you have your heart, you have your head, and all three have brain cells. My gut just goes, go for it. My heart was like, oh, you gotta do this. You know? And then my mind just said, yeah, it's a resounding yes. This is the right time, the right place, and the right thing. So then when I visited montevallo, Alabama and saw with my own two eyes, the impact that this American village had with these kids, it was just like, oh man, let's get going.

Nephew of George Floyd Appears to Threaten Jurors in Kyle Rittenhouse Case

"George Floyd's nephew is openly threatening jurors in the Kyle rittenhouse case. That's right, George Floyd's nephew is openly threatening jurors that might not give them the verdict they want. So this is the way things work in America now. Judge the rule the way we want, or we're going to burn your city down. Put young white men who defend themselves in prison, or else we're going to destroy all the Wendy's in your local area. Play cut 32. I ain't even gonna name the people that I know that's something in the Kenosha. I mean, the Kenosha trial. But this camera's in there. It's definitely cameras up in there and it's definitely people taking pictures of the jury's and everything like that. We know what's going on. So we need the same results, man. We need the same results. Justice for Dante right, justice for also. Oh, we need the same results. We have cameras of the jury. That is the illegal what he is doing. Yet the Department of Justice is too busy trying to go find a diary that belong to Biden's daughter while you have George Floyd's nephew May he rest in peace always saint George Floyd. May we owe his memory always be a blessing. It's ridiculous, how we have to put up with this charade for a couple years. And meanwhile, his nephew is threatening jurors in Kenosha. What I want to just say, though, that there is an unexpected hero. And that is the judge, Bruce Schroeder, he is a true wisconsinite, and he is pushing back against this aggressive prosecution that is unfairly trying to frame the case into something that

"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.

What Is 'The Rule of Law' in America?

"The rule of law by definition which is the written constitution that we have the written constitutional republic means that you are being governed by things that do not change. It is in writing. It's a reference point. People know what to expect. People know that if you burn down a building you go to jail unless you're protesting for saint george floyd during florida florida palooza. You assault a police officer. You go to jail unless you're doing that. During the palooza you see the idea of the rule of law. Is that if you do something you're going to have to pay for this creates incentives and this creates penalties. This creates consequences for action. The entire constitutional system that we live under is a series of agreed upon laws measures and principles that. Make sure you as the citizen which means co-ruler in greek co ruler of this country. Know what to expect that you're not going to be living in a sea of uncertainty chaos or confusion. It's supposed to be built on universal truths

"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.

"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.

"Potentially. He lied about his role. And why did he lie if the gain of function research going on if identifying the transmissible bat corona viruses at the wuhan virology if that add nothing to do with the outbreak of it then why would she lie about it on national television at the us capitol before a committee of the united states senate. Why why try to cover it up. Seems pretty bad. Speaking of scandals there's another tough scandal for a very prominent democrat for a very prominent left-winger This is from the h see. The human rights campaign human rights campaign is one of these ridiculously named organizations that is focused specifically on redefining marriage. And then they did redefine marriage than they moved onto transgender stuff. It's the the organization that has the equal sign as the logo and they really brilliantly redefined. The debate over marriage from a question of what is marriage to a question of who has the right to get married presuming their own conclusion. That sexual difference has nothing to do with marriage. So they're really brilliant about it. They were very effective in getting marriage to be redefined. The head of that organization now is has been fired. Alfonso david he was fired as the president of afc because of a sex scandal and unfortunately for this guy it wasn't even his own sex scandal. It was another guy sex scandal. This guy alfons are. David was implicated in assisting former new york governor andrew cuomo in his attempt to smear the women who accused him of sexual misconduct not good when the head of the sexual liberation organization gets caught up in a sex scandal. But this isn't the first time that this has happened to the human rights campaign. This actually happened with the founder of the human rights campaign. guy by the name of terry. Bean mr bean. In two thousand fourteen was charged with sodomy and sex-abuse a fifteen year old boy mr bean significantly older than fifteen years old now. This was a bad story to the media. Covered it up at the time a few years ago. It looked like he might get off the hook for this even though it looked as though there was i going to be a settlement between the victim and this guy then it looked like he was maybe going to get off hook but then he was. He was brought up again on the same charges and then all of his claims of innocence. I think fell apart when wet. Twenty nineteen september. Two thousand nineteen beans former sexual partner was found again not the fifteen year old but the other one is older one was found guilty of third degree sodomy in third degree sexual abuse which the oregonian reported at the time as a blow to beans claims of innocence So so he was supposed to be put on trial then. The trial was then postponed. Dragging this thing out because he's politically very important person for democrats. This is bad stuff. This is not good you because the the human rights i mean it's think perfectly good for justice that this guy brought up on on what he did but it's it's really not good for the democrats facade for the the lobbying efforts for the human rights campaign and for the left more. Broadly is they've got to put out this image that they are the moral ones there. The good ones there the clean and squeaky clean. And they're not they keep going down on similar scandals. Which brings me to a topic three politically incorrect. I i'm not supposed to talk about it. Conservatives are not supposed to raise any objection to this. We're just supposed to move on and it's supposed to be totally fine because we don't wanna see like means or anything like that. But i have to talk about it. There was a tweet that came out last week from buddha. Jr mayor pete the man who was almost president now. He's transportation secretary and it's pete buddha judge and his partner chason and they're lying in a hospital bed holding to newborn babies. Why are they in a hospice babies that they it's it's unclear if they've adopted the babies are if they the babies were produced in some other way. They're lying in a hospital bed which is very strange. Because they didn't. I don't think gave birth. I don't listen. I told him no epidemiologist. I'm no biologist but it would seem strange to me. If they gave birth so pete tweets out chase then and i are beyond thankful for all the kind wishes since for sharing the news that we are becoming parents. We're delighted to welcome. Penelope rose and joseph august buddha judge to our family okay. We're supposed to say this is totally awesome this wonderful. Don't raise any questions about it but we have to raise questions about it. I understand why people don't want to even many conservatives. Don't want to cause pete seems like a nice guy you know they seem like perfectly right upstanding citizens. They just wanna to be happy. They look so happy. We're pro-life aren't we. So it's good. And let's just not i don't we don't wanna seem like jerks right so but we do have to think more seriously about bioethics here. Okay because in making pete and jason happy we are robbing two babies of their mother. Either of their natural mother or of a potential adoptive mother. Don't forget in this country. There are an estimated thirty. Six couples for every who are attempting to adopt for every one baby put up for adoption. There is no shortage of couples trying to adopt in this country. Okay there is a shortage of people who want to adopt older children who were say taken out of abusive homes or you know children who are twelve or thirteen years old in foster care. That's a separate issue. We're talking about infants. Babies there were thirty six couples trying to everybody there and now there's a battle going on between whether or not you're allowed to take into consideration. The circumstances of the potential adoptive parents. Is there a distinction to be made between.

Make sure you use promo code daily. Wire joe biden cannot even fear monger on the sun monster correctly. That way you fear monger on the sun monster. Is you always say that. The devastating effects just a little bit into the future and we can still prevent them. But time's running out. They've been saying this since the nineteen seventies and. They've changed the specifics about what's going to happen. So initially was going to be an ice age global cooling. And but there's still a little bit of time but time is running out and then it became global warming and it's going to get really really hot. Tub time is running out and then it became climate change which was unfalsifiable. And it was. It's going to happen in twelve years. Ten years prince charles that it was going to happen in eighteen months. He said that several years ago. So i guess we're already passed the point of no return according to to prince charles. Afc is a little bit smarter than the future king of england. She put it a little bit further into the future. So i think we're still what eight or nine years away from the afc apocalypse but joe biden. He can't even do it right. He puts it in the past. He says we already at a time. We're already at a time. Then who cares buster. Well joe biden cannot even name the sorts of extreme weather that he's fearmongering about the looks like a tornado. Call mandy moore that hit the crops and and wetlands in the middle of the country and in iowa in nevada. And i mean it's just across the board. Listen i know that political correctness is getting extreme. I know that we're changing. All of the words just read a book on it but we can't. We can't call tornadoes tornadoes anymore. What what do we have to call them. It some have suggested it's it'll be like torn tornado decks. You know like they did with latino latine latina cts. It's going to be torn index noon. Mom you just take away all of the vowels and then you've got but i don't know what is he thinking of. He's not thinking very much. Is the problem with him. So the climate change thing is not going to work that afghanistan. obviously that's a terrible issue for the democrats. All of these issues are really not working. One other area where tr- trying to fear monger. A little bit is abortion. They're really focusing in on texas which they have acknowledged to be the sacrament of liberalism. That's why they're teaming up with the satanic temple in texas but it. It's not just joe biden. Who's who's messing up this fear mongering even the new york times did that. The new york times are trying to scare everyone into submission over the abortion. But they're actually as they do it. They're undermining their own argument. I've got to give credit to mary. Margaret ola han over at the daily caller have you have you ever heard of more beautifully catholic name than that. Mary margaret all. That's beautiful catholic name. She pointed out something right when this article came out. And i can't believe he got past the copy. Editors this is the new york times article talking about the democrats expanding the welfare system from cradle-to-grave democrats moved to expand the social safety net. Now here's right underneath the headline the three point five trillion dollars social policy bill. Lawmakers begin drafting. This week would touch. Virtually every american at every point in life from conception to old age. You catch that. So the argument. The argument for abortion is that the baby is not a baby. The fetus is not a human life even if the fetus becomes a human life in the third trimester say or even. Oh my gosh. We're going to be really conciliatory renaissance in the second trump. Certainly it's not at the point of conception. Why then the the the baby as you call it. He's just as zygote he's a clump of cells. He's non-human he's non living. Don't you dare call that human life unless you're the new york times and you accidentally slip up every point in life from conception which is now the new york times is acknowledging which is a part of life okay so we've established that the unborn baby from the very moment of conception all the way back before he was the tiniest little zygote right at that moment is a life. What kind of life is he giraffe. Is he a platypus. No he's a human so the new york times frame. This put this on your wall. I mean they're probably gonna just stealth change the headline and not tell anybody about it. But we should frame this up the new york. Times of knits human life begins at the moment of conception so now they're in this problem. You're saying yeah. We acknowledge human life begins at the moment of conception. We think you ought to be able to kill innocent people. The most vulnerable people among us. That's what joe biden said by the way that's his official line. Now he says look rather. I'm sorry that that was his official line until about a week ago. His official line. Was i believe that life begins at the moment of conception except the church's teaching on this but i think we should still be able to kill the babies only last week. Did he descend into formal heresy. And say i don't agree with the church on that. The scientific reality though even the times admits it speaking of scientific reality.

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. Coker was elected the first bishop of the African Methodist Episcopal Church but coker either declined the position or resigned and soon Alan was consecrated as the first bishop of the church as more black preachers and parisioners grew tired of dealing with racism and the Methodist Episcopal Church. They withdrew to align with the African methodist by the eighteen fifties. The denomination had reached California and after the civil war and reconstruction years membership in the Ame. Church grew significantly today. The Turks has membership in dozens of countries.

Why Do We Drop a Ball on New Year's Eve?

"Brain stuff lauren bugaboo. We're here every December thirty first throngs of revelers eager to ring in a new year crowd into New York. City's Times Square in the final minutes of the year. As the clock ticks. Away seconds towards midnight and opulent oversized ball descends from above and when it reaches its destination. The crowd cheers. The current times. Square ball is the seventh version to perform the duty of ringing in the New Year. The tradition began in nineteen o seven when a ball made of iron and wood covered in one hundred light. Bulbs descended a flagpole all the latest version of the ball boasts two thousand six hundred eighty eight crystal triangles and thirty two thousand and two hundred and fifty six led modules. The New Year's ball drop. Has Its roots in naval history inspired by the time balls introduced in the early eighteen. Hundreds these devices were fixed towers and coastal towns and would drop a ball all at a precise moment of the day to alert nearby ships captains. When to precisely set their navigational tools called chronometers? The current New Year's tradition is a particularly American American affair and the Times Square ball drop has inspired numerous imitators around the country and even around the world so today which is New Year's Eve if you're listening on the day the episode comes out I wanted to share some of the weirdest most wonderful things that people drop to ring in the New Year for more than two decades a city in central Pennsylvania Selena has celebrated the tournament calendar by dropping a massive Baloney spiced to meet is popular in the region and Lebanon.

That's about ninety. Kilos would be lowered powered by an industrial crane right before had been night in two thousand sixteen though the tradition shifted from one massive Baloney to twenty individual blocks of Baloney weighing in at ten pounds owns or four and a half kilos. Each the reason. For the change the organizers the annual event donate them to charity after the drop and it took too long in the hours after midnight to slice this up one gigantic Baloney. Apparently for twenty twenty a disco ball will be attached to the Bologna. Let's go next to Saint George's Bermuda where revelers avelar. Don't just get to celebrate a few hours. Before most of the rest of the Western Hemisphere they get to watch a gigantic onion. Drop at the stroke of midnight as musicians artists performers in street food vendors. Live up kings.

Glittering golden onion covered in light bulbs descends about the square which overlooks Hamilton Harbour and laser show and fireworks traditionally follow the event rent but back Pennsylvania in addition to the Baloney the drops in Lebanon less than two hours away. The city of Bethlehem celebrates or that enormous peop- drop that wraps up a two day celebration known as peeps best. This sugary and divisive marshmallow confection is generally produced in the shape of a bird and is most commonly found in the US around the Easter holiday. Just boring the Bethlehem based Candy Company responsible for peeps also makes my connects and hot tamales. The giant EH dropped on New Year's Eve weighs four hundred pounds. That's about one hundred and eighty kilos and finally let's head to Sunny Arizona and the city of show low.
