"Their media the joe scarborough's and all the this is the obama position obama is the invisible hand behind what's going on lincoln is originally his deputy secretary of state solomon worked with obama to obama's calling the shots and this is why you see all the anti -semitism and all the hate israel stuff he goes that is precisely the point biden's people reply only by hugging israel closely can erica exercise leverage over its actions without biden's embrace there would be no temporary ceasefire hostage is no stranger humanitarian aid getting through god as they say leave aside israel for a moment he writes now i gotta put put this in here too i'm trying to cut to the chase he says i'm not sure former members of the obama team are winning the argument it is not as though obama's criticisms of netanyahu had any effect when he was president the quite reverse israeli settlements continue to expand in netanyahu broke all diplomatic protocol by by giving a speech to u s congress attacking obama's nuclear deal when he was in the midst of a negotiating it that's right actually netanyahu represents his people and says he doesn't want iran to get the nukes supposed to sit there and shut up obama's in charge my point is that there's not so much love lost between obama and biden what he writes in here too is that obama netanyahu hates that's his phrase and he's talking to the obama people obama hates netanyahu because netanyahu stands in the way of their designs he's trying to protect his country and these people hate israel remember kalidi remember i talked about him last night remember we played some of the audio professor columbia a history professor in the middle east the edward say it see in in my view israel haters and also hamas mouthpieces my point he writes is there's not much love lost between obama and biden were it not for the fact that donald trump came in between their presidency so we would be focusing a lot more on what divides these two men some of its personal biden felt disrespected as vice president his advice was routinely ignored obama's staffers did little to disguise that they saw biden as someone who had to be tolerated rather than solicited he's from a different generation and learned his politics

A highlight from Introduction to Philippians
"Brothers and sisters, I would encourage you to open up your Bibles this evening to Philippians. We're going to be taking a look at Philippians chapter 1 and verses 1 and 2. We are beginning the book of Philippians. Today will be more of an introduction to that particular book than anything else. I will attempt to talk about the author, the themes, the aim of the epistle, the things that we can learn from it without spoiling too much of the content so that later on as we preach on individual portions, it becomes anticlimax after anticlimax. I don't want to give away the entire book, but I do want you to have an idea of where it came from, why it is so very important to us today, what we can learn from it, and to see the similarities that exist between this book and indeed our own time. As I'll be discussing in the sermon, Philippi was actually a military colony, and you may have noticed we live in a military colony for the most part. So the resemblances between us and the Philippians, apart from the fact that we have microwaves and cell phones and things like that, and they did not, are very strong. They are still the same kind of people who deal with the same kind of difficulties. They too had a state which was sometimes nice to them and sometimes which oppressed them very badly. They also dealt with the problems of relationships and all of the things that the fall has brought in. So as we look at Philippians and we hear Paul writing to this beloved congregation of his, let us seek to apply it to our own time, but before we come to the word of God, let go us to the God who has given us this word and let's ask him to bless it. Please join me. Oh sovereign Lord, we do pray now that you would be the illuminator of our minds, that you would help us to understand your word. I pray that you would help me to divide it to write, that you would give me liberty and power and unction as I do so, that oh Lord, I would not say anything that goes against your word. I know I am a man with feet of clay. I am capable of interpreting the word or wrong, but I pray Lord that you would prevent me from doing so. I do pray also Lord that you would give me the sustaining power to go through this book, a right, and to apply it to your people. May you give us ears to hear and hearts to receive all that you have to tell us. We pray this in Jesus' holy name. Amen and amen. Philippians chapter one and I'll be reading verses one and two. It says the word of the Lord. Paul and Timothy bond servants of Jesus Christ to all the saints in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi with the bishops and deacons. Grace to you and peace from God our father and the Lord Jesus Christ. The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever. I wonder if say 10 or 11 years from now, if I was in jail in Washington for my preaching of the gospel and possibly facing the federal death penalty and this congregation had sent me a gift in jail to help me along and I was writing a letter in reply to your generous gift. What would that letter sound like? What would I say? How would I come across in writing to you? Would it be complaining about the government and my situation? Would I be going on and on about the unfairness of it all? And speaking about how my liberties had been infringed or would I be writing to you to know a little about how I was doing and then spend the vast majority, not talking about myself and my own situation as dire as it was, but to spend the vast majority of my letter attempting to stir you up to joy and in the Lord to encourage you to be full of peace and grace and joy even in the midst of adversity. Would I think so little of myself that my letter would seek to lovingly correct problems of disunity that I knew about in the congregation? Would I push back against those who perhaps were on the fringes or in the congregation itself who were teaching bad doctrine in the community? And above all, would I urge you to keep the person and power of the Lord Jesus Christ at the center of everything you did? I hope that I would. I hope I would not send you a letter merely of whining or a simple thank you note that said very little. In my case, though, we're going to have to find out. But in the case of Paul and the Philippian Christians, we already know how he spoke in the midst of those circumstances because that is the letter that we have in front of us. Paul is in the midst of serious adversity, serious difficulty. He is struggling, we know, with loneliness, with persecution, and he writes a letter to his much beloved Philippines that is full of joy and encouragement in spite of all of those difficulties that stood against him in the world. So much so this letter is so full of joy that it has been often called the epistle of joy. Paul writing from jail, remember, and a Roman jail was not like the jails today. We speak today of jails as being three hots and a cot. You have TV, recreation yards, things like that. In Paul's day, that was not the case. You either had to pay for a place to stay if the charges weren't that serious yourself or if you were thrown into a Roman dungeon, you could often die of exposure. You went in with the clothes on your back, and if your friends and your family did not provide you with the things that you needed, including food in jail, you could die very, very easily while awaiting your trial. But Paul, writing from that kind of jail, he uses the Greek words for joy and rejoice, imploring the Philippian saints to rejoice. He uses those words kara and kairo more than a dozen times, and this is just a four -chapter letter, remember. So joy is one of the most prominent themes in what he is writing. He is, as I said, in a Roman jail. This is possibly the second time. I think it's probably the first time that he was there. He is waiting a trial on a capital charge of treason, and the people who will judge him are members of Emperor Nero's brutal and corrupt administration. And as we know, Paul was not somebody who was going to give them a bribe, so there's no way out of his imprisonment that way. And yet, as we shall see, Paul is able to look well beyond the circumstances that surround him, and he's able to actually see Christ in heaven and the work that Christ is doing in the world and indeed in Philippi and throughout the church and to know that God throughout is in control and that all of God's promises are coming to pass. Let me just stop and ask that question right now of you. Do you know those things as well? Do you have that solid trust no matter what your circumstances are in the Lord Jesus Christ, that no matter what afflictions, adversities, difficulties, diseases you're dealing with today, yet still you know that the Lord is in control and that his will is coming to pass and that none of his promises will ever fail. I pray that that is the case, and if not, I pray that you will take encouragement from Paul. He was writing to encourage the Philippians, but we remember that he wasn't writing just to the Philippian congregation. Through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, he was writing to us as well. And so I pray that he would be encouraging you in whatever situation you are in. But we see him trusting absolutely in God, trusting in the Christ whom he knew and that therefore there was this inner principle of joy in his heart, an inner principle that no one could take away and that he still wants to share with others. He wants that joy inexpressible that we heard about this morning to overflow to others. The Romans might take his life. They could do that, but they cannot take away his joy or his peace. That is one of the great promises that is given to the Christian. Nobody can take away the Holy Spirit dwelling within you. Nobody can take away your salvation, and nobody can steal your joy and your peace in those things. But let's take a moment now to discuss how all of this came to pass, how he came to be writing this letter from jail. Where is Philippi? What was it like? Who were the Philippians, and how did Paul come to know them? Incidentally, this is a picture of the Philippian ruins that you will find in Macedonia. I am told they are amazing. It is a UNESCO historic site. Maybe one day as I got to see Ephesus, I will also have a chance to see Philippi. But in the meantime, let's talk about the city. Philippi was originally founded as a colony in northeastern Macedonia by colonists from the island of Thanos. They were called Thacians in 359 BC. But it was captured by Alexander the Great's father, Philip, and renamed Philippi three years later. So it didn't have much of a long run of independence. But in saying that, I have told you very little about Philippi itself. Because the Philippi that Paul knew came along much later on. It is like me telling you that Fayetteville was settled by colonists from Scotland. Because almost 400 years had passed between the founding of Philippi and the time that Paul was writing. Just as almost 400 years have passed between the time of the founding of Fayetteville in our own time. So the Philippi that Paul first visited in around 51 or 52 AD was a very different place. The Romans had captured it from the Macedonians in 168 BC. And in 42 BC during the Roman Civil War that brought an end to the Roman Republic. It was the scene of the final defeat of the forces of Brutus and Cassius by the forces of Anthony and Octavian. Who later of course became Augustus Caesar. And that final battle occurred just outside of this city. This was critical because after the city Octavian turned Philippi into a Roman colony and a military outpost. They released some of their veteran soldiers. The war to defeat the men who had stabbed Caesar had finished as far as they were concerned. And they released some of their legionaries from Legion 28 to colonize the city. Which was founded and I apologize for my terrible Latin here. Colonia Victrix Philippensium meaning the colony of the victory of Philippi. From that point onwards it was a place where Italian veterans from the Roman army were given land. And it sat upon an important Roman road called the Via Ignatia. Which was a road that was constructed by the Romans in the 2nd century BC. Incidentally I learned while we were on our trip that the Greeks joke particularly in Cyprus. That the only roads in Greece that last were built by the Romans. The modern ones all fall apart. It crossed through Illyricum, Macedonia, Thracia and runs into the territory that is now part of Albania. North Macedonia, Greece and European Turkey. Why is that important? Well it's important because it meant that Philippi was a center not only of trade. And they had mines we'll talk about in a little while where they mined gold and silver. But it was a place where it was possible to go from Philippi to other areas of Macedonia. Or to turn south and to go into Greece. They had their own route 95 so to speak running right through the city. That allowed them to have concourse with all the people in Greece and up in Macedonia and into the Roman Empire. This meant that the Lord in founding his church there. Put it in a place where the inhabitants could as they did their daily trade. Carry not only letters to Rome but they could also carry the gospel to the surrounding areas. Now the citizens of this colony were regarded as citizens of Rome. And they were given a number of special privileges that ordinary inhabitants of the empire didn't have. It was in many senses a miniature Rome. Literally because they were under the municipal law of Rome. It was as though they were a colony that was in Italy actually attached to Rome. That was the way the law functioned. And they were governed by two military officers the Duumviri who were appointed directly from Rome. And the colony itself although it was relatively small. It was only about 10 ,000 people when Paul reached it. It was very wealthy as a general rule. They had gold and silver mines just outside the city. And those mines were still productive in Paul's day. It was as I said a little Rome in the midst of Macedonia. And not just in the government. It was laid out like a Roman city. And so to this day you can see that they have a Roman forum in addition to a Greek Agora. But how did Paul get to this city? How did he get there? Well let's read a little from Acts 16 which actually tells us. So if you would turn in your Bible to Acts chapter 16. And I want to begin with verse one which will tell us that Paul was actually when this all started. He was in Asia Minor. He was over in modern day Turkey on his second missionary journey. We read then he came to Derby in Lystra and behold a certain disciple was there named Timothy. The son of a certain Jewish woman who believed but his father was Greek. He was well spoken of by the brethren who were at Lystra and Iconium. Paul wanted to have him go with him and he took him and circumcised him because of the Jews who were in that region. For they all knew that his father was Greek. And as they went through the cities they delivered to them the decrees to keep which were determined by the apostles and elders of Jerusalem. So the churches were strengthened in the faith and increased in number daily. Now when they had gone through Phrygia and the region of Galatia they were forbidden by the Holy Spirit to preach the word in Asia. After they had come to Mysia they tried to go into Bithynia but the Spirit did not permit them. So passing by Mysia they came down to Troas and a vision appeared to Paul in the night. A man of Macedonia stood and pleaded with him saying come over to Macedonia and help us. Now many people have speculated just as an aside that this is Luke who was speaking to Paul in a vision. Now after he had seen the vision immediately we sought to go to Macedonia concluding that the Lord had called us to preach the gospel to them. Therefore sailing from Troas we ran a straight course to Samothrace and the next day came to Neapolis and from there to Philippi which is the foremost city of that part of Macedonia, a colony. And we were staying in that city for some days and on the Sabbath day we went out of the city to the riverside where prayer was customarily made and we sat down and spoke to the women who met there. Now a certain woman named Lydia heard us. She was a seller of purple from the city of Thyatira who worshiped God. The Lord opened her heart to heed the things spoken by Paul and when she and her household were baptized she begged us saying if you have judged me to be faithful to the Lord come to my house and stay so she persuaded us. And we know that Paul and Timothy stayed with Lydia for some days. They had some other encounters. I'm not going to read the rest of chapter 16 but I would encourage you to actually read all of chapter 16 tonight. It won't take you that long but you will read about the exorcism of the demon possessed slave girl which unfortunately got them into trouble because the demon allowed her unfortunately to know about things that men didn't know about. And so her owners used to get money from her that way. We'll also tell you about Paul and Silas's unjust imprisonment and then the household baptism of the Philippian jailer which is marvelous and of course one of those household baptisms that shows us that we are to be baptizing not just parents on their confession of faith but also their children. This was the first church established in Europe. Note that. And that at the explicit direction of the Holy Spirit who made it very clear that Paul was to turn the direction of his labors from Asia Minor which is modern day Turkey to Europe. He goes through Macedonia and then after that he goes into Greece and brings the gospel into Europe. Now the bond as you will read through the Philippi you can't help but notice the friendship, the love that exists between Paul and this congregation. It was peculiarly close though others had abandoned him in his imprisonment as we shall see these Philippians had not. They continued to pray for him and they continued to provide for his needs in this world. They sent him a gift. As I said I don't want to give away too many spoilers but they had sent a man by the name of Epaphroditus with a gift for him in jail and then he had sent Epaphroditus back to them with this letter. That's how he got it. And as I mentioned this letter was written from Rome during his imprisonment. The beginning of that is related in Acts 28. The reference to Caesar's household which you will read in Philippians 4 22 and the palace in Philippians 1 13. In the Greek it's Praetorium. It was probably the barrack of the Praetorium guard attached to the palace of Nero and that confirms this. So I tend to think it was during his first imprisonment at Rome. That would tend to sit with the mention of the Praetorium and that he was in the custody of the Praetorium prefect and his situation agrees with the situation in the first two years of his imprisonment that you can read about in Acts. In Acts 28 30 and 31. It's not that important whether it was the first or the second imprisonment. The fact is he's in prison. He's in prison for his faith. He's in prison for his preaching. But he does not allow that to destroy him or even to to drive him down or to change the nature of his ministry. Many people might have switched over perhaps to a martyr's ministry at this point in time and yet he does not. He continues to encourage the people to go about their their business preaching the gospel and being members of the church no matter what the circumstances are. Now the tone of this letter as we go through it you'll notice this. It's unlike most of his other letters. It contains no long doctrinal discussions. It contains no rebukes of evils that were festering in the particular church. But it is an outpouring rather of happy love and also confidence in these brothers and sisters. He loves them. He is confident in them and he wants them to be confident not in themselves. He wants them to be confident in Christ and in his promises. Like all of Paul's epistles, as you saw, it starts with a salutation. Our letters, of course, and with the identification of the person who's sending it. But the letters back there started with who this letter was from. And like most of his letters, it also starts with a prayer for the people that he is writing to. He isn't just in intending to give them information. He wants to bless them, to bless them with his letter and to bless them with his prayer. And one commentator calls the entire letter a long gush of love towards the Philippians. And it is. There's nothing wrong with that. Verses 1 and 2 that we read there, they contain an apostolic greeting. The senders are identified there. Timothy is associated with Paul. Timothy was with Paul, therefore, in his imprisonment. We remember from 2 Timothy in his second imprisonment that Paul noted that only Timothy had stayed with him. Or rather that he wanted Timothy to come to him in his imprisonment to bring things to him. Timothy remained loyal to Paul no matter what. Timothy also, you remember, was going to become very important to Paul in the Ephesian church and building them up and so on. Timothy was a genuine, he was more than just an amanuensis or a secretary for Paul. He was a helper to Paul. He was a brother in Christ, somebody who would stand with him in thick or thin. Now, Paul mentions him and he often does that. He brings the friends who are about him into prominence. That also indicates that the people in Philippi knew of him and would be interested to hear how he was doing. Timothy is in Rome with Paul when the letter is being dictated. And although Timothy is not the one who is inspired to write the letter, Paul is using him as his secretary to take it down. It's very possible that Paul had an eye disease, which made it very difficult for him to write. He calls Timothy and himself, he addresses himself as a bondservant of Jesus Christ. Now, that's a nice little word, bondservant. It conjures up the idea of indentured bondage, the idea that we're just working off a debt. But when he says bondservant, he's actually using the Greek word doulos. Doulos means literally slave. He is a slave of Christ. Some prefer the translation bondservant to kind of neaten it up. We don't like the idea of Paul calling himself a slave of Christ because of the bad connotations of that. But we remember that most of the Roman Empire, in fact, 20 % of the city there, and this would have had, as a Roman colony, a military colony, Philippi would have had a lower than normal slave population, more free men than slaves. But they still speculate that at least 20 % of those 10 ,000 people within the colony were slaves. And here is Paul saying, I too am a slave. But who is he a slave of? He's a slave of Jesus Christ. He and Timothy are slaves, and they aren't complaining about that. They understood that they were bought with a price by the Lord Jesus Christ in his sacrifice for their sake, and therefore they were owned by their master. They are completely dependent upon him, and they give him their undivided allegiance. They love this master of theirs, the Lord Jesus Christ. In fact, Paul clearly, he views it as the highest honor that we can attain to serve Christ, to have his light yoke upon us instead of the heavy chains of sin which he takes away. And he is bound to absolute submission to this Lord who is all worthy and who gave everything for his sake. Paul, note in all of his letters, never forgot what Christ had done for him, never forgot where he was when Christ found him, how he was an enemy of the church, a persecutor of the church. Somebody whom Christ, you remember, addressed on the road to Damascus saying, Paul, Paul, or rather at that time, Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me? Jesus associates himself so keenly with his people that to persecute them is to persecute him. I was thinking about that as we were hearing about how the Pakistanis are wretchedly persecuted. What their persecutors in Pakistan, the Muslims, do not recognize or realize is that in persecuting them, they are persecuting God the Son. And it will not go well for them to be counted amongst the persecutors on the last day. But he had once been a persecutor. Now he is no longer. He is a slave, a willing servant of the Lord Jesus Christ who loves him with all of his heart. Now note also at the beginning, he doesn't mention that he's an apostle. And so there's a great contrast here between letters like Galatians where he asserts his apostolic authority when he's teaching them. This is a very friendly letter. He doesn't actually need to. He knows they know that he's an apostle of the Lord. Jesus greets all of the saints in Christ. Jesus, who are in Philippi, and he abused them. He calls them saints. And what is he talking about there when he calls them saints? Haggai, literally holy ones. These are people who he considers as they are in Christ. Have you ever thought about this? We may think of ourselves as wretches. We may think of ourselves as people in whom there is nothing worthy of praise. And yet the way that the Lord looks at us is his holy ones, his ones who are set apart. His chosen ones who are even now being conformed to the image of Jesus Christ. If you are in Christ, that is who you are. You are one of his special people. In the Old Testament, the word was segula, his special treasure. Brothers and sisters, the devil wants us to think of ourselves as only what we can accomplish by our meager efforts. And let's face it, that's not much. Isaiah, at the end of his long, his long prophetic letter in Isaiah 66, he talks about righteousness, the righteousness that a holy man like himself might be able to accomplish by himself. And he says these things, our righteousnesses are but filthy rags. But Christ, what does he do? He endows us with robes of righteousness. He enrobes us, as Luther put it so very well, so that when we stand before God on the last day, the saints are seen as they are in Christ. That is who Paul sees them as. They are people who are called to be holy and who are being made holy. We have been saved by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, but we are also, and this will come out from this letter, we are also being conformed to the image of Christ. It is as that example that was given to us a little while ago of the, as we were going through the Bible study of the princess who had been made, or rather the commoner who had been made into the queen. She was given the title, but then gradually she was taught the courtly graces and made into somebody who everybody understood and saw was the wife of the king. They are the people of God. They are the saints of Christ and that because of their union with the Lord Jesus Christ. All of the saints together in their communal sense are being addressed by Paul. This letter would have been probably read just as we read it in the midst of worship and so on, and then copied and passed on to the other congregations, the other saints throughout the world.

Capstone's Jared Asch and Jim Wunderman Discuss the East Bay's Biggest Growth Hurdles
"What do you see as the biggest challenge for continued growth in the East Bay? Sounds like transit is one, economic development. But what do you see as some of the challenges ahead and maybe some of the solutions, some that could come from Sacramento or D .C., even? Yeah, look, I think the East Bay grew up kind of fast. Some people feel impacted by local traffic, things like that. There's a lot of newbies in East Bay. They just are. They're used to the place being the way it is and they don't need any more of it. And so they're reluctant. So I think there really needs to be a movement that the elected officials can get behind and get excited about and that their leadership can really drive the growth and the improvements and the new what's to come rather than them being dragged to vote against investments and improvements, because people with a similarly colored T -shirt all get up at the council meeting and scream, no way. And so that's where I think the opportunity is to come together. And let's just agree that a lot of what's in the East Bay was built at a time that was a different time. So now we need to rethink some of these areas. The way we did them just really isn't consistent with what we need now. We need something different. I look at it as I drive about. I see a lot of aging kind of strip mall centers and I see a lot of stores that are out and I have a feeling nobody's coming in and we probably need to repurpose a lot of that and do it thoughtfully. And that could provide a lot of housing. It could provide entertainment. It could provide new lifestyle opportunities. And these places tend to be in the central part of cities. So they're often very well located. I was talking to two different mayors that said one of the biggest problems that they're having with some of those shopping centers you're talking about that are nearly dead is that it was owned by grandpa in the 1960s or something, and now it could be 10 or 30 entities, family members that have a share in it. And so what they have found is they have one anchor store and one or two other stores that come and go, they're still making cash flow on those because property taxes hasn't changed much and things haven't changed. So if you have an anchor that's giving you cash flow, even if each family, if you have 20 or 30 families, is still making two grand a month, but maybe they're also getting losses from the vacancies that is equal to 20 ,000 or 30 ,000 off their W2 taxes. It's a win for those people. And when developers have come in and tried to buy that out, they can't even get 20 percent of the families to come to a meeting because they're just happy with the status quo, where if even if those families developed it themselves, you've got to bring everything up to code. You've got to really invest in it. And there's been this laissez -faire approach and people could probably name half a dozen in Concord, one or two in Pleasant Hill. I'm sure we can go throughout the whole Bay Area and name them. But that's a big problem. I don't know if you have thoughts on that. Well, momentum is is important. And once you start seeing something, when I started, I've been in this job 20 years. So when I came, we were talking about my predecessor was a woman named Sunny McPeak, who was a Contra Costa supervisor and had this job for a bunch of years and then went on to become Arnold Schwarzenegger's secretary for business, transportation and housing at the time. So she was very well -known in planning circles and is very influential, I think, lead in the area. And she was all about transit oriented development. I think she might have invented the term, but there was really not a lot of examples of it around at that time. And it was a lot of resistance to it because you're basically going into a suburban area where it's all single family private homes and say, we're not going to do that over here because there's transit here. So we want to densify that area. So she was able to accomplish that at the Contra Costa Center, Pleasant Hill, Bart Station. Then we had at least one that was under construction. It was happening. And then a couple of others. And then before you knew it, they were popping up like all over the place because there was momentum.

Is that a man who's compassionate about the American people? Is that a man who can protect the American people? Absolutely silent, he doesn't even talk about it. While flunky, the secretary of DHS keeps testifying that the border is secure or we need comprehensive immigration reform. And I'm not even including the inhumanity, the other inhumanity that's taking place on the border, sex the slaves, the children sold into sex slavery, the rapes, the murders, the other drugs coming across, drug cartels with ties to the communist Chinese who use techniques like ISIS coming into our country. They now have a foothold in every major metropolitan in every one of our states. What kind of a president is that? He's a president that should be impeached. That's a high crime. Doing that to your own country? 100 ,000 civilian deaths a year, probably more? We just had the FBI director testify that the FBI now controls enough fentanyl, illegal fentanyl that it has acquired to kill 270 million Americans and the border is still wide open given what's going on in the Middle East. Can you think of another country that has an open border? Any? Can you think of another president or prime minister or dictator or monarch who would leave a border open like that so its own people are suffering and dying? We're talking about potential

My critique of this has been the media coverage of it because it was so absurd. His I hope his critique of it was technical. Together, they get everyone who listens to this special pod will get both the political journalistic critique of Secretary Granholm selecting one reporter from NPR to go along with her advance team led right on road trip road trip. How absurd is that is a waste of money, time and propaganda. Absolute propaganda. Yes. And your second conversation with John Campbell, former congressman, car dealer and rocket tour extraordinaire, should be about the inefficiency of EVs and their appeal, because he has one, right? He doesn't. Non Mustang Mustang. Yes. And we talked about that. That's one of the cars that could have been and should have been under normal circumstances in her little fleet, her motorcade that they talk about, because it's one of the biggest selling electric vehicles in the country. But it's an air sets Mustang. It's like going to the no, no, no. The reason why it's not there is because every vehicle that was in her motorcade that she featured on this road trip are made in union factories. Oh, my gosh. Oh, that's that. I didn't know that. Well, see, that's why you listen to this podcast is because we got to that yesterday. The four door electric sedan made by Ford that they stick a Mustang label on is actually produced in Mexico in a non-union shop. We can't have that. So that's not that's not part of the fleet. We can't talk about that. All right. That concludes our EV segments. And I would encourage we're going to post these for Harley's benefit. We're going to post Monday's Grand Old Pod, Tuesday's Grand Old Pod, the parts about EV and these first 10 minutes to wrap it up. Bottom line, America, don't buy an EV based on anything the government tells you that it can or cannot do because it's not true.

"Right. So it takes a vehicle that's already exceptionally heavy and exceptionally expensive and makes them heavier and more expensive. And the heavy is a problem, too, by the way, if you haven't seen that. You know, one of the things they're always saying they want to tax big trucks more because heavier vehicles tear up roads. Well, you know, the lightest EV out there is four thousand pounds. The Hummer, the GMC Hummer is almost ten thousand pounds. You know, your average Honda Civic is three thousand or twenty eight hundred or something like that or Honda Accord, whatever. So these cars are much, much, much heavier than your average car. So they're going to tear up streets some more. The other thing they're doing is there are some parking structures weren't made for something as big as an F-150 Lightning. Or I mean, you haven't read this. Yeah. Oh, that's great. Parking structures now in cities that are saying no EVs because they can't handle the weight of my must. My Mustang Mach-E is five thousand pounds or fifty two hundred. That's heavy, but it's not any heavier than, you know, probably your F-150. Right. OK. You know, a full sized F-150 four by four or a suburban suburban. It's not any heavier than that. But a lot of these big new SUV things that are electric, like the Cadillac, like the Cadillac. Yeah, the electric Cadillac, stuff like that. They're there. They're putting up signs in these things that you can't drive them in there because you may fall through the structure. You can't make this stuff up. You know, it's there's a lot of issues. Again, you're the car guy. I'm asking the questions. Hugh's going to go back and listen to this. Gas powered F-150 versus a F-150 Lightning, all electric. OK, same same truck. One's gas, one's electric. So they've got different weight. Same tires are on it. You could have Jeep. No, I don't think they're the same tires. You sure? I don't think they're the same tires. Most EVs have their own special tires, which, by the way, are more expensive. The one you come to replace tires because they're low rolling resistance to increase range. Because otherwise what happens? Otherwise you have less range. One, you have less range and two, because of the weight of the car, don't you wear through the tires faster? Just because of the weight? Yeah, you'll wear through tires faster. They are coming out with some of these off-road EVs, so you can't put a low rolling resistance tire. You've got to have a knobby tire on that, but that's going to kill the range. So what are they doing? They're just putting more and more battery in it, making them heavier. If you're off-road, you're in sand, you're in mud, you don't want heavy. That's ill. Yeah, you need to be light and nimble. Second comparison. But you should know, most EVs do have specific EV tires that have a low rolling resistance to increase the range. Which means, by the way, they have less grip. Okay, that's fine. So on wet roads they're a little more slick. That's correct. Now, if you've got to stop these suckers and you need brakes, what do we use typically for brake pads on most commercial vehicles these days? What's the component that's on the brake pads? Oh, on the pad? Yeah, what's the material they use on the pads that actually stops the car on the rotors? Well, you tell me. It used to be asbestos. It's not anymore. It's not anymore. But whatever that stuff is, it creates dust as it grinds itself down as you stop these things, right? Do you go through brakes faster or slower gas-powered versus EVs? You will go through them much slower in an EV. And here's the thing. I knew that's not the answer you expected. But again, because I'm not Chuck Todd, you're getting the real answers here. EVs have what they call regenerative braking. So when you lift, all of them have it. When you lift off the accelerator, it basically reverses the motor and allows the car to use the engine motor to bring energy back into the battery as you're slowing down. And most EVs, the two I have, have this. You can adjust that. And you can make it so like when the captain, Mrs. Campbell, drives my Mustang Mach-E, she wants it to drive like a regular car. So I put the minimum amount of regeneration in there so that when she lifts, it feels like what she's used to when you lift in a gas car, which is the compression of the motor slows it down a little. But not a whole lot. And then she steps on the brake. So what you're thinking is it's a heavier car. It'll take more brake to slow it down. And that's true. But if you set it for the higher, the regenerative level, which I do, the last time I drove my Mach-E, I didn't touch the friction brake because I know to lift, where to lift, and it will stop you all by itself from the regenerative braking. I would guess I'll get, if I own that car that long, I wouldn't have to replace those brakes before I'd have to replace the battery. So that is actually an advantage of EVs is that. But you do have to get used to it because when you lift, man, if you set it for what's called one pedal driving, you lift and it's noticeable. I mean, it's like you're stepping on the brake more than just a little in a regular gasoline car. And so you notice it. And so you do that because, hey, it puts battery back in charge, back in the battery. So you get more range. And second, you don't use the friction brakes. So you don't have to. So that's another thing. You know, you use friction brakes, brake dust comes off, the wheels get dirty. I'm fanatic about keeping my cars clean. I would imagine Mr. Hewitt probably doesn't care. Well, I just was thinking that brake dust isn't good for the environment when it runs off into stuff either. I mean, you're right. They used to use asbestos. Yeah, but I don't have to clean the front wheels of my electric car like ever because I hardly ever use the brakes. The only time I use the brakes, somebody pulls in front of you and you actually have to stop faster than it'll stop you. Then I use the friction brake. OK. The light changes just as you get there. Other than that, I don't use those friction brakes in an EV. OK, we're almost out of time. Last question on EV versus gas. And again, I'm using an F-150 Lightning as my comparables because they're basically the same size truck. One's battery, one's not.

"What's wrong with that picture? Charlotte to Memphis, Tennessee? Yeah. Uh, that's I don't know, what do you think is wrong with that? It's a one day trip. Well, yeah, it's I-40. It's it's what? It's it's. Can you look it up on Google? 500 miles? I don't know. I don't even know if it's 500 miles. I don't have Schroeder around here. What in the world do people think that is? What in the world do they think is that a road trip? Charlotte to Memphis, Tennessee, was intended to draw attention to the 619 miles. So it's a I mean, to be fair, it's a two day drive. I mean, if you really wanted to pound it through, I do that back and forth to Maine twice a year. It's a one day from where? From Virginia to Maine. 600 miles one way? Yeah. OK, so if you average 70, 75, the 10 hour, it's a 10 hour trip, it's a 12 hour trip. OK, well, I used to drive from Warren to Boston four times a year and not blink. People go from San Diego to San Francisco without blinking. OK, four days, though, it might be a two day trip. It's it's it may at the most, it's a two day trip. Four days you're stopping for every ball of yarn. Yeah. And so four day for the intended to draw attention to the billions of dollars the White House is pouring in, blah, blah, blah. On town hall stops along a road trip, which may explain the four day. Oh, by the way, it may be four days in an EV because you have to stop every 100 miles to charge. It might be, but we don't we that that's my problem. They do not tell us they do. They never tell us how many times did they stop. How long did it take to recharge the car? I got to get to that. We're going to run out of time. I want to get to this. I wrote along with Granum during her trip here to see firsthand how the White House intends to promote a potentially transformative initiative on the public. Granum is in many ways the perfect person to help pitch to. Again, more on her. I don't know why she's a longtime EV enthusiast. That doesn't make her the perfect person to pitch. You want a skeptic to pitch. But between stop and then a second time, she tells us that makes her uniquely well positioned. So she says she may be the perfect person. Then she said she's uniquely well positioned between stops at times to grapple with the limitations of the present. Like when her caravan of EVs, including a luxury Cadillac Lyric, a hefty Ford F-150 and an affordable Bolt electric utility vehicle, was planning to fast charge in Grovetown, a suburb of Augusta, Georgia. Her advancing, maybe she didn't go direct because you don't go to tenant Charlotte. It's I-40. Is Augusta, Georgia on I-40? I think so. It's not too far off it. But Charlotte hits I-40 going west, goes right through Memphis. Her advance team realized there wasn't going to be enough plugs to go around. One of the station's four chargers was broken. The others were occupied. So an Energy Department staffer tried parking a non-electric vehicle by one of those with working chargers to reserve a spot for the approaching Secretary of Energy. That did not go down well. A regular gas-powered car blocked the only free spot for a charger? In fact, a family that was boxed out on a sweltering day with a baby in the vehicle was so upset they decided to get the authorities involved. They called the police. The sheriff's office couldn't do anything. It's not illegal for a non-EV to claim a charging spot in Georgia. Energy Department staff scrambled to smooth over the situation, including sending other vehicles to slower chargers, until both the frustrated in the family and the secretary had room to charge.

"Flamiano Damanski covers cars, energy and the future of mobility for NPR's business desk. She covers the automotive supply chain reporting from the salt piles of an active lithium mine and the floor of a vehicle assembly plant. She monitors the gyrations of global energy markets, explaining why price movements are happening and what it means for the world. She tracks the profits and investments of some of the world's largest energy producers. As global urgency around climate mounts. As global urgency around climate mounts. She. Oh, my gosh. She has reported on how companies are and are not responding to the calls for a rapid energy transition calls for rapid energy transition. She has reported on why a country that is remarkably vulnerable to climate change, that would be us, would embrace oil production and why investors for reasons unrelated to climate change have pushed companies to curb their output. Before she joined the business desk, Damanski was a general assignment reporter and a web producer for NPR. She covered hurricanes in election walruses and circuses. She has written about language, race, gender and history. Wait, did she cover walruses in hurricanes? That's that's in there. She has written about language, race, gender and history. In a career highlight, she helped NPR win a pie eating contest in the summer of 2018. Damanski graduated from Davidson College in North Carolina, where she majored in English with a focus on modern poetry. All right. I am not ragging on on a young reporter. Camilla Damanski is probably under 30. Would you guess? One hundred percent. Yeah. And and all of her tips, all of her signals are I am a lefty. But we know that NPR is of the left. They are of the center left, but they are of the left. And I love Steve Inskeep. He'll be on in a few weeks with his new book. I love a lot of people in NPR, but they are left wing. So Jennifer Granholm, my my assumption is Jennifer Granholm wants to take a road trip in an EV to prove to everyone in middle America, center right America, that they should buy EVs. And she she handpicks a young reporter. Now, let's go through this article. I hope we have enough time for this. When Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm set out on a four day electric vehicle road trip this summer, she knew charging might be a challenge, but she probably didn't expect anyone to call the cops. OK, that's a good lead. It's a good lead. I got to say, right? Oh, yeah. I would not normally have any problem with this lead. I do have a problem with the nut grab, which is net Granholm's trip through the southeast from Charlotte to Memphis, Tennessee.

"Jim, as a Browns fan, I actually know the kind of misery you're in. If that were to have happened to the Browns and our $55 million quarterback on Sunday, I don't know if I could have broadcast. So I salute you for being here. How are you doing? Hugh, I'm doing fantastic. You saw the final score, right? I know you won. I saw your tweet and I gave you a thumbs up for that tweet. A win is a win. Yeah. No, I'm feeling fantastic in part because the Jets found out a way to win against a good opponent after taking the biggest gut punch imaginable. There are a lot of times, I was trying to say yesterday, people are like, oh, same old Jets. No, the same old Jets would have lost that game 47-3. Yeah, that's true. Before we go any further, Hugh, I have a slight non-football bone to pick. I saw a tweet of yours, I guess probably like last week or so, where you were upset with something Politico had written. I don't even remember what it was, but you said they've turned into the National Review for the left. Can I just ask, could you just not compare National Review to Politico, period? I got so much grief from my many friends at National Review for whom I have written that I had to subsequently enter a tweet saying, hey, I love NRO. It's the best online publication on the right. It wasn't meant that way, but it could be construed as probably more of a criticism of NRO than you intended because the gist was you're not happy with what Politico is doing, right? Let me see if you agree with it. Politico is very, very good at representing the worldview of the center left to left, very, very good at it. And they do culture and lots of reporting, and they also have worldwide reach. And National Review, William F. Buckley, standing astride history and sounding stopped, they've been doing it longer than anyone at a quality level. So is it really bad to compare the two because they are kind of in the same space? If somebody said to me, Jim, your work is great. You're just like Politico. You're going to see that forced smile. You're going to see that – I know you think you're complimenting me. I don't necessarily take it that way. Well, I apologize to all my friends from Rich Lowry down to Jack Butler and everybody in between.

"Before we go to policy, Mr. Secretary, congratulations. I have never heard of Route 60 until I saw this. Tell me about it. Well, Hugh, thanks. It's good to be with you again. It was Ambassador Friedman's idea that we would walk this Biblical route from Nazareth in the north, to Bathsheba in the south, through Jerusalem, and we would tell stories from his perspective as an Orthodox Jew and mine as an Evangelical Christian, and we would share with the world Judea and Samaria. People have pictures of stones and rockets and smoke and bad things, and we wanted to remind them that this is an important place for Evangelical Christians, for Jews, for all members of the Abrahamic faith. And so the movie comes out. It's in theaters across America next week on Monday and Tuesday. I hope folks will go see it, take their Bible study, take their friends. It was a lot of fun to make, and it tells this important story about this incredibly important place. And you know, we did it in spite of the Screen Actors Guild, Hugh. We didn't strike. I'm a member of that union, so I'm on strike, Mr. Secretary, but I'm going to cross the picket line and go. It's Monday and Tuesday of the next week, a week from yesterday and the day before? Yeah, that's right. And you can go find the theater near you. It's on Route60.movie. I am really looking forward to that. Now, Mr. Secretary, I reached out to you without knowing about that because the G20 left me reeling. Last night, Chris Christie was, I went down to a Christie event. I go to all the events in New Hampshire for candidates that I can, and he said, quite bluntly, President Biden does not have the physical or mental capacity to be president. I think that showed through, and I think it's extremely dangerous. Respectful though I am, what do you think of this situation? Hugh, we can see it. The world can see it. I still travel a fair amount, and I have people all across the world, Europe, Middle East, Asia, asking, you know, what's going on? We clearly have a president who has served his country for five decades now, but who is no longer, forget leading, he simply isn't demonstrating the basic fundamental competence to execute the mission of the presidency of the United States of America. That is a tough job. It is a big job. And I think, you know, a president who is literally played off stage with music and who answers a question by saying, I'm going to bed, is not someone that ought to be the president of the United States of America. It's too important a task for us and for the world. Now you have met with Kim Jong-un in North Korea. You've met with Xi. You've met with, I don't know if you met with Putin. Did you meet with Putin? I did a couple of times. Okay, so what do these killers think of someone as infirm as the president? They think in a system like ours, it confuses them, because they struggle to understand how someone who hasn't been able to demonstrate that he can, you know, work the hours required, run a process to get to good decisions and outcomes, and then lead and demonstrate that result. They don't know what to make of it. They're confused. And they then watch the policies, Hugh, so separate this from the person. They watch this administration give billions of dollars to the Iranians, allow 13 Americas to be killed in Afghanistan. They allow the Russians to close the pipeline. We forget this. The very part of the Biden administration, they closed the pipeline in America, and we did nothing. Xi Jinping is staring at this and thinking, well, this may well be the moment when I can extend my empire in the way that I've wanted to do for so long. Deterrence is really a risk, Hugh. And it's not just the bad, bad guys. I saw a picture of the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia shaking hands with President Biden. Crown Prince is 40 years old. Joe Biden is 80 years old. Crown Prince is going to be the king for three decades, four decades, if his health holds out. What do you think he thinks of Joe Biden's appeal to do anything? Goodness, Hugh. The only good thing that came out of the G20 was this agreement between India, the Emirates, the Saudis, and the United States. I applaud all of them for that, to connect those countries economically through energy and commerce. That's good stuff. But I am confident that each of those leaders, to your point, our adversaries see weakness, and our friends, our partners, our allies, those who within we work, they don't know if they've got a trusted, reliable partner on the other side. And so when they see President Biden clearly struggling in the way that he is, they ask themselves, how can I hedge my risk in the event that I don't have that reliable counterparty in the way that they had for four years when President Trump and I were in office? Mr. Secretary, when I was driving up, return driving, and my wife was driving the car, so I was able to read when it came up in real time, David Ignatius' new column. And I want to quote it to you first, but I think David Ignatius is rightly esteemed by left and right, and he is certainly well-connected with everyone at both of the places you led, both the agency and the State Department. Is that a fair statement of fact? That is an understatement to say well-connected, yes. That's true.

"And after that, among his many jobs, he was the publisher of the American Spectator, which is like being the publisher of the craziest magazine that's most productive in the world. He was the publisher of the Weekly Standard. I don't think he was there during the rise of Trump. He retired a few years ago and moved up to Maine. So I was blessed to be able to see him last summer for a great visit and then early this summer when health problems had begun to catch up with him. And then last week when he wasn't really communicative, but he was there and then he passed away yesterday. And everyone should have the life that Terry led in terms of family and friends because he's truly blessed by family and friends and with a deep relationship with his Lord. I always remember the great evangelist, D.L. Moody, someday you will hear that I am dead. That is a lie. I am more alive than I have ever been before. Well, I believe in heaven. But even if you don't, if there is a heaven, Terry just got the VIP entrance. He taught Sunday school at Fourth Presbyterian Church. Most people in D.C. who are listening to this and it's on in the Beltway will remember Terry from that. And he was a member of the Salem editorial board for many, many years. He just did everything and he did everything with a smile and a slightly bemused approach to the world, which benefits everyone. Never took himself seriously, took serious things very seriously. When I come back, I'm going to read to you the most important op-ed that I read to you. Terry Easton, rest in peace. Say your prayers for Jill. She's fine. I bet she'll miss you. It's going to see her today. And they live in the way north, the way, way north. They left the Beltway and came way north before anybody else I know did. And they live up there. And so I bet she misses you. You'll be up to see Jill today. And she's doing great. For those of you who know her, she's just fine. She's a wonderful Christian woman herself and has patiently cared for Terry in his last weeks, as anyone would hope a spouse of that long. We got married in the same summer and we have just been knowing each other for a long time. When I come back, though, there is a column in The Washington Post this morning, which I have to read to you because David Ignatius is the voice of the Beltway. You know, people jokingly refer to me as the unofficial member of the Senate caucus. And that's flattering, but it's not true.

"Okay, let's see here. We go to Los Angeles, the city that was once of angels and eddy hello eddy. Hi, Dennis. Hi. I'm a huge fan. Thank you. At the very beginning of the pandemic, you said that lockdowns would cause mass destruction and but you didn't know at the time that they would save any lights at all. And with that approach to decision making from the Bible, no, I can't, I can't claim that it is. I read enough very early on to realize that the price being paid by lockdowns would be great and probably greater than any savings of life, and I had Sweden from a very early age as my, my test case because they didn't lock down. And I think you said that before Sweden decided not to lock down. And it was just one of those things I heard you say one and you didn't repeat it like you do with good ideas, but I decided it was brilliant. I mean, because it turned out that that was the right approach. Well, thank you for noting it. It means a lot to me that you noted. It's not for ego reasons. I have my ego in check. I'm very normal guy. The reason that it is important to me is that I regularly take positions that are different from the dominant left at your university, high school, at the media, in medicine, and they have all turned out to be right, so I should earn your credibility. That's the reason, and the opposition. Like the American medical association should earn your scorn. I read very I wrote very early on because I read very early on. About the inevitable adverse consequences to humanity of the lockdowns. And it struck me that unless you had such a lockdown that people would be never allowed out of their houses, which is what they tried in China, and it didn't work. And so as soon as they got out of their houses, of course, people contracted COVID from one another. Since that is not an option to keep people indefinitely indoors, and even if that is, it was not worth it. Also, I believed and still do in Therapeutics like hydroxychloroquine with zinc, the fact that The New York Times mocks people who advocate Ivermectin, for example, as a horse dewormer and only a horse dewormer, only reinforces my belief that it's probably true. Because whenever there's a controversial subject, The New York Times is always wrong. It's not always wrong in every article because it doesn't have an article, always on a controversial subject. But when there is a left right difference the left is always wrong. And I have, I have the backup. I tweeted it in April 2020. I kept reading about the hunger that would result from lockdowns, the shattered economy, the children being set back when you think about what college educated people supported, masking two year olds on airplanes. Do you understand the cruelty as well as the idiocy of such a position? My heart broke for families that had to travel. How do you keep a mask on a two year old?.

Got a Tennessee that's how one on if stupid was a shirt my sleeves would be long never too far making my name makes mistakes because it's hard to outrun the devil when he sitting on your shoulder. And you can't feel the warmer side life when you were getting cold or you know I'm gonna be a better man for it when my dark days are over. But it's hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel this side of sober and he said yeah I'm a God for you everybody..
"secretary" Discussed on Dennis Prager Podcasts
"I'm Dennis prager. The subject is sober fun. Increasingly. Well, I don't know if it's increasingly. I think it is. I'm not certain. People are not having fun from life. But from additives, drugs and alcohol are the most obvious or gambling or any addictive behavior like that. But. It's a reliance on adrenaline producers outside of normal life. I mean, Friends, sometimes family, if you have good family relations, if you have a good marriage, your marriage, you travel music, hobbies, I mean, there are so many sources of what I call sober fund. It's quite remarkable that people do not find in life itself. Those fun things, those exciting things even. Okay, I learned that from people who feared getting sober because they couldn't believe they'd have fun. And I'm going to have fun without drinking. It's almost impossible for the regular drinker to think that. Okay, let's see here. Think of someone's mouth and turn them into accounts which I'll try that Springfield Pennsylvania, Mike, hello. Hello, Dan. Hi. You signed my deuteronomy book at the feud with the light green. Did it have a special name? That's funny. I must admit I don't remember the name of all the inks that I use, but it is a very fair question. Yeah, I was my comment wise, maybe some people, I'm not talking from experience. I was a late bloomer. Maybe some people smoke masks or turns off the gift switch before they have sex. Well, I think that's an interesting question. When my peers would tell me how much better sex was when high, I don't think it was to reduce guilt. I don't think they had any guilt. However, there are women who will, in fact, take something, have a drink or smoke a joint perhaps if they're not committed to the guy that they're about to have sex with. In other words, like girls of the hookup culture with college. So it might be more applicable in those in those cases. All right, I thank you for that. And Ruth Ann and Erie, Pennsylvania, hello. Hello. Thank you for taking my call. The reason that I called is I was raised by Christian parents that really lived it and had a church that believed that we have a whole shape vacuum in our heart that only God can fill. And I never needed that other stuff because I had Jesus had forgiven my sins and when your sins are forgiven, you don't have to numb any pain that you caused others or others caused you. And I'm not saying that every day was blissful, we go through trials just like everyone else. But another thing is, I think I never cared what other people thought because I knew that God approved of me and so I didn't have to have a drink to go dancing and enjoy it. And what I found and everybody knows that alcohol is a depression. I used to go to parties where they drink, get high, do all kinds of stuff. And I drink my water and some of them were afraid and thought it was a narc. And they're like, no, she's just Jesus freak. And I got to tell them about Jesus course I didn't get invited back to many times. But I just, I'm happy, even in the midst of horrible things because this earth is not for our forever home. We're going to be in heaven. By the way, I'm curious, did you ever get married? Unfortunately, I did not pick well, yes. Wait, you did not pick well and you did get married. Right. I see, okay. All right, I got it. All right, we'll be back in a moment. Lay in the grass.

"And there is a certain distance in you. You all know. That's right. That's right. Oh, this is just the exhilarating for me. We'll be back in a moment. Adam Nicholson, and I CO not CH and ICO SON Harper Collins, the publisher, the book God secretaries we return in a moment and we're going to learn a little about King James, who, by the way, isn't it ironic that that's basically all he's remembered for and what a remembrance it is. We'll be back in a moment, I'm Dennis prager. I'm Dennis prager and I welcome you back. My guest in Sussex England is Adam Nicholson, he is the author of the just published God's secretaries the making of the King James Bible and as The New Yorker, hardly a religious tome, or religious journal, notes, it is elegant erudite passionate popular and jauntily on footnoted, but that part I put in undertones. I don't know what footnotes I don't even know what footnotes frankly you can use much. I actually do like when they were footnotes in history books, but I'm not sure that this one really needed it. Well, it was a difficult decision to make about footnotes. I mean, footnotes do sort of lend an error of trust to the thing. Yes, that's right. Do you see them? You know that you can go back to some resources. But they do have a way of making it look like a sort of reference book. I think rather than a story. And I wanted to tell a story. Right, which you do well. Now let's go to King James himself. So you really help me on the Val. I can't tell you, really, this was because I have struggled with that so long, which do I use the majestic or the accurate, but there is accuracy in thou shalt not steal because it is directed to the U singular and I very much appreciate that. By the way, there is an issue that I have raised with my listeners for much of my 20 years on radio. And that is that thou shalt not kill, is actually in Modern English at any rate inaccurate. It's now shall not murder. And that is an important distinction because thou shalt not kill would mean that the ten commandments came out against warfare, came out four pacifism even vegetarianism, theoretically, because you can't kill an animal. Did kill and you may not have the answer to this. Did kill in those days imply murder? I don't know. I mean, certainly they had no compunction about killing. I think something like 70 death sentences a year were carried out in early 17th century England and they killed happening enough. I don't know. I think that kill and murder. There is certainly the word murder is used at the time. And I think they are distinct. So if it was used at the time, then it wasn't unfortunate choice for a great translation. I mean, no translation could be perfect, but it really was. You're right. I don't have the answer to that. I don't know why it doesn't say thou shalt not know. Because the Hebrew makes a very clear distinction that they're both both words there. Anyways, just one of those things that has always stuck with me because I know what is misled a lot of well intentioned religious people into pacifism opposition to capital punishment and so on, which may be fine for other reasons, but not for the reason that the ten commandments bans it..

"secretary" Discussed on The Jimmy Tingle Show
"Hello, everybody. Welcome to the Jimmy tingle show. I am Jimmy, and I want to introduce you to a new segment of our show, the meet the candidate series. It is intended to give candidate 20 for public office a platform and a voice. So voters know who is running for office, why they're running and what they hope to accomplish if they are so fortunate to be elected. So please feel free to share these interviews with your family and friends and citizens around this fine land because an educated and informed population is essential for a healthy democracy, and isn't that what we all really want, a healthy, democracy, enjoy the interviews, stay healthy. My name is Jimmy tingle, and I approve this message. Our candidate right now is tanisha Sullivan running for Secretary of State of the fine state of Massachusetts, tanisha was born in Boston and raised in Brockton. She graduated from the University of Virginia with a degree in government, then she then attended Boston college, where she obtained both a law degree and an MBA and from 2013 to 2015, tanisha served as the chief equity officer in the Boston public schools and in 2017, tanisha was elected to serve as the president of the NAACP in Boston in a volunteer capacity. Please welcome to the show the one the only candidate for Secretary of State tanisha Sullivan. Hello tanisha, how are you today? Jimmy, it is great to be here with you. I'm fantastic. Hope you are too. Yes, so tell us tell give us a little bit about your background tanisha and tell people what you've been up to. Yeah, so I mean, as you shared, you know, born in Boston raised in Brockton Brockton, of course, is known as the city of champions home of Rocky Marciano and marvelous Marvin Hagler, my dad was a public school educator, spent 40 years in the Boston public schools, my mother is a small business owner, really working to help ensure that small businesses, access to the resources they need to be successful, and I'm in my 20th year. I can not believe it. 20th year of practice of law, I've had the opportunity along the way to serve in our public schools in the Boston public schools really working to ensure that our young people have access to a quality public education. And for the last now 6 and a half almost 7 years, I've had the honor of serving our communities as the volunteer president at the NAACP in Boston where we've worked with local government as well as state government elected officials stakeholders to really advance public policy to help improve quality of life for residents across the Commonwealth. And really excited about being with you here today and sharing a little bit more about why. I'm so excited about the sector of state race. Yeah, well, tell us, why are you running for Secretary of State, first of all, tell us what the Secretary of State does, because a lot of people know the title, but they're not always sure of the actual duties. And why are you running for that office? Yeah, I think this is one of the most exciting offices in state. It is a statewide office. So regardless of where people live in Massachusetts, the Secretary of State is of service to you, this office is the office responsible for voting. And voting rights and ensuring that we have safe and secure elections that we can trust. So of course, as a civil rights leader, that's critically important to me because there's no greater civil rights issue in our country today than the protection of our democracy and the fight for voting rights and access to the ballot box. So that's a fight that I look forward to really helping to lead here in Massachusetts. The office is also the chief information office. So if you want to know what's going on in government, you want to access public records. This office is the one that can help you do that. Unfortunately, Massachusetts is known as one of the least transparent states in the entire country. But the Secretary of State can actually help to ensure that people have access to the information we need to not only hold government accountable, but to also be able to participate in government. You mentioned Jimmy, I graduated from UVA. UVA is one of those one of those institutions in our country that really focuses in on government and democracy and self governance in order for us to be as we the people to be part of government. We got to have access to information. The Secretary of State can help with that. Secretary of State is also the gateway to business in Massachusetts. So if you want to start a business, whether it's a small corner store or you've got a great idea that you'd like to develop, you got to go through the Secretary of State's office. And so my certainly my legal background, I'm a corporate lawyer. I've spent now almost 20 years working in this space really comes into play here. I'm really working to ensure that especially the small businesses have access to the resources they need to be successful. So the Secretary of State's office has about 16 divisions that fall under it. So it's the elections. It's information. It's business. It's even our historic archives. I think this office has some of the greatest potential to help improve the quality of life for residents across Massachusetts. And I'm running the beast Secretary of State because I think The Office really needs to be more proactive and engaged, connected to our communities so that we can do more to help everyday people. Really experience all of the opportunity that Massachusetts has to offer. So tell me, in terms of politics, do you think we've been doing a pretty good job here in the state of Massachusetts? And do you see areas for improvement that you specifically would like to work on? Yeah. So the thing is, Jimmy, here in Massachusetts, we do have, we've got a good foundation, but unfortunately the barometer that we use to determine how well we're doing is by looking at Georgia, Texas, Arizona, and Florida. And quite frankly, that's not the measuring stick in my opinion. We are

One one to talking about your career your life story from the very beginning you know your political career dating back to al gore's presidential campaign. I believe so. I encourage everybody to listen to episode one until after this episode to get to know your personal story a little bit better but today we are going to focus on. You know some current topics. Niger say before we get into that. You are the president and ceo of the organization. Asian pacific american institute for congressional studies or apec. Could you give us a quick overview of the mission and the goal of this organization. You're leading which. I think actually is a good background and foundation for other stuff. We're gonna talk about later on in this interview. Well absolutely so apex down at twenty. Six years ago by former secretary norm annetta when he was a member of congress. He founded it alongside on the congressional asian pacific american caucus k. pack which comprise of the api members of the us house and senate and so apex mission is to increase a representation at all levels of government <hes>. From community service to elected office and have them participate at all levels of the electoral process. Gotcha so it's interesting that you mention norman. Mineta who i think is one of the first cabinet secretaries of asia-american designed in our country. I don't know the first night check on that. The first right okay. So yeah. I think he was transportation secretary. He was actually commerce. Secretary and president clinton's administration got it and then went to transportation under the bush administration. Gotcha gotcha he has this. Unique history of serving the first cabinet secretary serving both administrations both parties administrations. And really i think started in important. I guess trend of representation that is about to end with the incoming biden administration. And we're talking about as we are a few days before job and becomes president to be inaugurated. This will be the first time in close more than twenty years that they will not be in asia. American or pacific islander as a cabinet secretary in an administration whether it's democrat or republican for the first time. And you as the leader of a pack which is a nonprofit has spoken out quite a bit about a lack of representation. Could you share with us. What is your view of what is about to happen with this. Lack of representation in the incoming administration sure dodge. Obviously we have an incoming vice president. Who is a pi asian american. She south asian descent black vice president-elect kamla harris and also to cabinet level positions. They don't head up an executive department of which there are fifteen. And that's catherine tie. Vr and near attendant. You know the to cabinet. Level positions obviously have a lot of influence and i will just use the word sides <hes> the congressional hispanic caucus and the congressional black caucus as well as k. Pack when they sent a joint letter over a hundred and fifteen members of congress to the by the administration saying close to equal equal. And so that is that those were their words and so <hes>. And so you know. I cabinet secretary heads of an executive department. And there's only fifteen of them and so when you think about that fifteen how's that diversity including asian americans. It doesn't because there isn't one of the fifteen a. I applaud the administration for their work in trying to expand diversity in having openly. Lgbtq individual leading agency <hes>. And native american woman of half of the cabinet will be women so all those great things. So if you wanted to find diversity and not include asians in the fifteen than i need to ask you. What is your definition of diversity. Because we seem we've seen this play out and other places where the state of washington. I think they're department of education. Basically categorized asian americans as white so obviously a different definition of diversity.
