"Think neither annoyed me who is annoyed at too careful woken nor would annoy the carefully woke net that could even considering I've been reading a trick of light which is by Stanley the late marvel creator and Cat Rosenfield who so young adult novelist so I'm going to be interviewing for a podcast that'll come out later this week but it is a novel Vol-. That was originally an audio book that was released earlier. The sheriff was a massive hit on audible and it's about two teenagers who are kind of navigating a world of superpower. The power of inexplicably bestowed superpowers augmented reality and virtual reality and it's it's a very good book. I highly recommend Peter Peter. You'll be gratified to know that my eleven year old we're riding the subway yesterday and all she wanted to do was to rank the quality body of Stanley Cameos in the MC you during our it's that is an extremely correct doing on a subway ride like that's what my brain is. Kinda doing in the background all the time. What have you been consuming Peterson on Thursday night. I watched a debate between national review writer David French and New York Post op ED page editor Sohrab Amari the debate follows Amari's piece piece in first things a few months ago titled Against David French Zim Anamar is fundamental complaints was that David French was just too nice that he was retreating from important cultural debates specifically with regards to the family and kind of social conservatives and the debate was just a route David David French the Nice Guy who doesn't fight destroyed Amari and this is not to say that I completely agree or even largely agree with David David French our think that he's like really deeply right about American politics but he has kind of a a fundamental sense of the facts on the ground which is that a procedural constitutional institutional individualism and the protection of individual rights is the most important thing in politics and he was the president of the foundation for individual rights in education and which has done a lot of good work on college campuses and a Maurice Response to almost everything was was just a kind of emptiness we he didn't really have any concrete ideas about what he wanted to do and I will give you a specific example which is that this debate was kicked off by of all things Amari being being annoyed Maher who lives in New York being annoyed that a library in Berkeley was hosting a drag Queen Story Hour for children. That's that's so that gives you an idea of the level of debate that this is happening at to begin with and French was like okay okay. Let's agree that fresh like I. I don't think people people should be drag Queens That's you know I agree with you. I'm I'm a Christian. I wish all of these drag Greens would come to having a relationship with Jesus Christ. What Sorbo Maury would you do due to stop this from happening and a Maurice Response. I is was almost like a parody. It was just a joke it was I would haul the head of the the Modern Library Association in front of Congress and Josh Holly and Tom Cotton could grill him and make him sweat now. Among other other things there is no modern library association that does not exist. There is the Modern Language Association which is a group of English professors my father father. The English professor was a a member of this the Modern Library Association. I'm not sure maybe he was at the American Library says some other thing but he didn't even bother to learn like the basic details of this but even if you sort of ignore the fact that there was a kind of a detail issues at the core of his response here what he really wanted was just political theater and nothing else and when French was like well. That's not a solution. It's not actually going to stop this from happening. Amari was like well okay. There could be local ordinances local ordinances that would prohibit these drag queens from being able to use a public space which is the public library and that's really what I object to is using the public square for these immoral ends and French. French response was look. The reason that they can do that is because conservative Christians fought in the courts for years for viewpoint neutral access to public spaces and that benefits conservatives and Christians. That's a thing that Christians want but what that means is if it's viewpoint neutral than you can't discriminate against the people you can't say well look drag. Queens can't have access to this space and in any case disturb Amari really think does he really think that Berkeley Berkeley that in the possibly the most liberal locality in the country is GonNa pass a local Ordina parents. There think this is great. It's a it's a wonderful away for their children to experience the variety of culture. There's it just doesn't work on any level. He hadn't thought about any of the legal issues he had no actual concrete solutions and so I wrote a piece that I think that was quite sharp. that was that was in some ways it was intended to be a little bit unsparing and the title was sorber. Mario Marias joke and the argument of that piece wasn't that Sorber Murray is just wrong in that he has a bunch of bad ideas but he doesn't really have any ideas at all and we shouldn't be treating him as a hey good faith interlocutor or somebody who's really an effective representative of the nationalist conservative argument Bom. It's a great piece boom. Go read it. It's super good and thank you all for listening here and everywhere to the reason podcasts editor's roundtable it and keep on listen to this channel and and elsewhere and see next week goodbye..

"Folks, this is Eric Metaxas. I hope you enjoy the previous segment. This is kind of a weird amazing day for me. I've just been in Europe. But the experience of meeting Kris Kristofferson at the hippo house at the Berlin zoo, sounds like something I made up, but you can look at my Twitter feed, and if you don't get my emails, sign up go to Metaxas. Sorry, go to Eric. Metaxas dot com and sign up for my getting Eric's latest thoughts or whatever. That's my weekly Email, but you need to get that. Because some of you are not getting a lot of the photographs of the cool stuff, we're doing so. All right. John's Mirek, I think he's there. John, you there? Hey, Eric, welcome back. You sound so calm knowing. No, you are doing something like you're at the doctor's office. And so we are interrupting your your life. I wanted to talk you just for a few for as long as you know, you have, but the bottom line is you've written a couple of articles that when I was away in Europe, I was reading them, and I said, I need to get you wanna talk about this. And if you don't have time today to go too far, then we will talk to you another day this week. But let's talk there's a big controversy, most people in his program, have no clue. And I'm glad they have no clue because people should not waste their time with this. They should let us talk about it. But David French, he's a writer for national review has gotten into something of a contretemps with Sohrab Amiri. Tell us about this, and where do you come out on this? Basically David French represents the Republican movement circa Joyce, W Bush, where we are trying to impose democratic values around the world. We're trying to slow down the launch of the sexual revolution at home, and we're trying to help business and keep the government's law that would be pre Trump Republican party, now, white, we need to be cleared to that. David French was an extremely prominent never-trumper during the campaign so much so that he was put forward as a Republican candidate in place of Trump. It was very strange thing. And he has remained, very, very strongly anti Trump. He basically believes that we are betraying our conservative values and Christian values by supporting Donald Trump and his populist policies and his intemperate tweets and his just, just terrible. Terrible Boettger in crude and brash and Boris, babe. You're and this is David French is not mind. Sorry. Sorry. Good. No, no Mori who. Article I things is taking a pro-trump populace necklace point of view, which is interesting. He got his start at commentary magazine, had John fidora's is something of a mentor. So Laurie has kind of made a move towards the populist and nationalist. Right. And I think on, on the merits, I tend to agree with them Ari and three different pieces of stream dot org, which go through all this. The most important one is the one, I try to sum it all up. And it says Christianity needs both the winsome and the winners, they seem to need that David French believes that being a Christian means being victim. And if you let the brutes society push around, you look at you and they will see Jesus Christ, and they will be converted. I think that's a fair is very summer. I think conversely, believe that we have to look to Christian station through history. And I've written about this Constantine and some of that the prince Vladimir the guy who when he converted in Russia, all of Russia converted behind him. This sort of conservative populace that there's more to Christianity than be victim at the end of time. Christ will come as the judge, and the conqueror of the world and part of being a Christian is laying down laws that are moral that are based in the natural law in the in the world as God created it as we see. So as we learn about it and reflect on it rationally and the to me. The crucial thing has been natural law. That's the law, God wrote on the human heart that any rational person if he's honest, ten potentially be persuaded that murder is wrong. Incest is wrong adultery is wrong. Basically, the ten commandments even though God reveal them, you could discover the rationally if you thought about it long enough and talk to other people in honestly, argued it through that theory of natural law. And what I say, in my article is that natural law should be the goal of every Christian in politics. We should want the natural law to be the basis of legislation not what we happen to read in the bible in what we believe purely by faith not near a Kohl's, not the apparitions of Mary. Fateh only the natural law, the things that God wrote on hard that we can know by reason. Well, I just to clarify for my audience in case. It's not already clear. I mean, I, I hope that they'll go to stream dot org. Read your articles. But what you're saying, John, and I agree with it. Very, very strongly. Is that true? Christianity, does not impose, okay? We know that I cannot force people via the government to be Christian or even to have Christian values. I have to believe in religious liberty, which is to say that religion is a free thing that my religion I can have it freely, and other people can have their religion or lack of religion freely. But we're that religious freedom ends in a sense, is, when let's say, somebody says, oh, I think my religion says, I could kill people when I feel like it that's when you have to say, no, we have to have an understanding that everybody understands that we're all together on that we say, we as a nation and sin the constitution. We believe in natural law. We believe. Even the God who gives us life, liberty the pursuit of happiness. These are the things that are non negotiable. Doesn't matter what you believe what church, you go to don't go to when we come back we're going to talk a little bit more with John Zamira don't think we have him for both hours. And fortunately stick around..

"And yet, they're probably also thinking you know what we need if we're going to do something, we just have a, a no, Steven Crowder policy. That's not a policy that we can have in place, what we need is something that is clear and consistent and can be enforced over time. But what does that rule? What would that even look like it's, it's almost impossible to imagine a clear rule that would work there. And in the very same way, it's difficult to imagine what a government that would look like that did, what Sohrab Amari once when he talks about a government that is in favor of the, the highest good and the best good. Or if it's like or either the common. Good, and even the highest good, and I think he had highest capitalized in his initial, they were a lot of like vaguely Germanic and And appleans. what there is? No, there's no clear way to define what the public square should look like that is consistent enforceable. That is clear that it's transparent that everyone would feel is relatively fair. And so even beyond sort of, like, the, the philosophical issues that we have with all of these things that are real and significant. There's just this like basic practical problem of setting up rules and setting up goals and setting up systems that anybody can agree on what Tucker Carlson and Elizabeth Warren and Sora Amari, and the please regulate yourself, YouTubers all seem to want is something that they can't really quite define accept something that doesn't bother me ever and that conversation has to be had on both of these levels. Right. Like your critique is right. This would be hard to do but that I don't like totally effectively making that critique just gets us. Donald Trump like situation where we say, like, okay, it's impossible to do this thing. And the next. Inning vox and and Tucker Carlson, and Elizabeth Warren. I'll wake up together. Dear god. That's a threesome, and they and they say, okay. Triangle, we're going to. We're going to refight this same battle because we're going to think of a new way to try to do it. We're gonna use antitrust law. We're gonna use. We're gonna use hate speech. We're gonna use section two thirty amendments we're going, and I so I think that that's why the place that I keep coming back to is. And this is this is not always my approach to politics. This is often not my approach political discussion, but to come back to the place of like it doesn't matter, whether it's hard or whether it's easy. It's wrong, it's wrong to do this. It will yield bad outcomes, but it is also on a fundamental level incompatible with the liberal values society that you live in and benefit from everyday. I mean it's willpower, isn't it? Nick. I mean th they're admitting it. Like if I have enough power, I get to use the club. Whereas power, so I can use the club there. As the subtlest Nazi implication, right there. Like when you have to do like this. The skip hop between like Nietzsche to Hitler. Like that's it's willpower. Is a good way to. Some meaningful. It's a meaningful critique of liberalism, that liberalism mascots well to power in the language of rule of law disinterested regulations that just happened perpetuate this or that thing. I think that critique is wrong. But yeah, Matt, I think that's right. And that's also one of the things that I think, in a broader kind of discussion, you don't win, Catherine. It's talking not just about pragmatics, but also about ideals and principles some of the time, I think libertarian discourse about government and stuff. Like, we assume the worst we presume the worst of the people who are empowered wanna be empowered cetera. And in a way, it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy, because it almost becomes impossible to hold people to actual standards, even the ones that they articulate themselves, and like, maybe we should be doing that. And one of the things I know that I have disagreements with, I think, all of you are at least some of you about. I, I think that, you know, YouTube has every right to regulate moderate, it's, you know, it's, it's views or content whoever wants. But it sure. Should be absolutely full-throated in favor of they should be making a liberal argument about why free speech is good, and why they are providing the space and if you don't like it go fuck yourself go go somewhere else, you know, because we're going to let all people do all things here, you know, absent true threats and whatnot. I think we need that, and we need to be, you know, this is one of the things that we are. So kind of beaten down in terms of, like everyday life, and people complaining about stuff and saying, like, in the midst of like unbelievable, wealth and plentitude and good. Things were focusing almost exclusively on negative outcomes that need to be controlled by the state, or some weird mixture of Elizabeth Warren. Donald Trump and Tucker Carlson in the private sector, etc. We, we need a different rhetoric. There is a nostalgic decadence to our politics right now. That is, I think pretty problem attic, you want explain that thirty seconds. I like that. Yeah, I mean look at all. What is politics about right now? It is about looking back to our glory days, and then griping about how things are unpleasant today. And it's a bad way of looking at the trajectory of American history, the, the period ee. Yes, there are troubles. Yes, there are things that could and should be better. But the the entirety of American politics right now, the is focused on sort of saying, well, you know, what it was like America was great once literally, our president was. It's on a hat on. Yes. On the basis of a hat that says, make America great again. The idea that was once great. And we have lost that greatness that, that is core to the Elizabeth Warren vision of American politics at the Bernie Sanders vision as well. And, and, and it's just it's kind of decadent. Right. And you combine that, especially with the with the, the sense that are massive and unaffordable entitlement state is also woefully lacking, not providing nearly enough to to, to enough people. And that somehow another, we should be cutting taxes while expanding all of that, right? That like that. That it's just it's, it's, it's a real sense of, of kind of grumpy entitlement on the part of America's political class that I don't think is reflective of the actual situation of the economy and of social life in America, Catherine. I'm going to invite you to agree with me here in which I think one of our year end episodes are year beginning episodes. I postulated that the worst thing that happened last year. Is that nothing bad happened? By which I meant like we're all this unhappy at a time of economic growth and not a lot of big ugly new wars. And so that's a precursor of the question. Can you just racking your brains? Can you think of a time when the basic, you know, unemployment picture, the growth picture was so positive, not just in this country, but worldwide and yet people felt that people's attitudes about where we are right now are so sour, it feels like there's been a some kind of dislocation that has happened here. I mean of those of us on this podcast only Nick can remember the ninety s so I guess, I'll let him speak to that. But I believe Matt may I. May have been in central Europe. I have this vague vision of like very large pants, sir. There were there was a wallet. Jane on those pants. I think. Yeah. So I you know, I think that people generally are ungrateful wretches, and I would actually expand that thesis even more broadly, like I would bring in a little bit of like DJ McCloskey, and Steven pinker here and say, like we are the children and grandchildren of the great enrichment, which has been going on for two hundred years, and the long piece, which has been going on for seventy and everything is getting better every day, and people are very unhappy. And you're right that many of the kind of short term indicators are even especially good right now, as you say, like, the, the economic numbers, and things like that, I recently at the behest of my, my daughter's first grade teacher listened to a really terrifying, conspiracy theory podcasts, which I may have mentioned on here before called it could happen here and the promos of this podcast, which ultimately do not find the thesis of this thing convincing. But the premise of it is imagine one thing breaks, imagine one of those numbers goes really south. Imagine we really get involved in a war. Imagine even just nineteen seventy style rioting in American cities. Which is not that far in, in our memories. How does that cause a cascade of failure in the rest of the system? And again, I am and will always be a theorist of the muddling through, I think people muddle through that is what they do. Catastrophe doesn't come, nirvana doesn't come people just kinda get on with it, and I believe that's what will happen. But the stories told in this podcast, I think, do make me worry about how relatively miraculously great things all right now and how badly people misapprehension their own condition. I'm curious, I was just going to say, you know, possibly to kind of pull on a sham Petitjean threat. You know, if if in fact, nine rant has said this and other people. That when one of the values are virtues of capitalism is as broadly understood social political economic system, it gives people more opportunities to create their own meanings to their lives. That, that's you know that's what it does. It allows you to express who you are. And what you believe in what you want out of the world. More fully than other systems. It might be that, you know, existential angst is a luxury good. And we were swimming in it, because we actually have more time to think about the stuff. We have more ways to communicate with more ways to engage one another and we have more ways to make meaning in our lives. And, you know, to blend this with the Frankfurt school kind of commentary from, Eric Frahm cultures and six days yet. No, but, but, you know that there's an escape from freedom that people don't want that responsibility. And they project outward onto other things either things like I will climate change is coming. So we have to focus on that. And we have to straightjacket every aspect of our lives and our thinking process to forestall this. This kind of rapture like end of world scenario that may or may not happen into the future. So we all focus on that. So we don't have to actually take responsibility for what we're doing day to day to create meaning in our lives. I think that might be part of what's going on here is that, you know, we, we need to. Kind of grapple with the idea that we have so much more freedom, and so much more autonomy that we also have much more responsibility to not to tell other people how to live, but to actually come up with the way that we want to live, and that is hard and it changes I've been, you know, decade by decade. You know what you think that is the moves in and out of focus, you know? I think, you know, quite naturally, but as a society, we might be stuck in a place where we just don't wanna do that. This, by the way, is why the even though nobody has a good word to say about the algorithms, that increasingly control the things at least see and consume like that's why those exist that those are all tools to deal with a world of maximal choice. And for the most part, they help people deal with it, very effectively, and they're going to get better and better. So, I think that's, that's also just another small piece of this is like this idea of, like the algorithms have taken control from me. But also inexplicably, I would rather if Donald Trump had that control is, is a piece that I've never I struggled to understand it on an intuitive level, which is one reason that I sit on the other side of that divide from Elizabeth Warren and Tucker Carlson, and always will, and YouTube YouTube is what it was founded in two thousand six or went online.

"And then there's, I think Sohrab instinct, and others is actually no, we should organize dramatically to kind of oppose this sort of thing. You know, maybe it's demonstrations. Maybe it's the there actually are activists that have tried to disrupt these kind of things by bringing five hundred parents to clap or to, you know, do other disruptive behavior because they think we've a'duty to the innocence, not only of our children, but of the children of this whole community so anyway, there's just this broader split my own view, which I'm articulating in a piece that should be. Be up on national review online, as we record this, or as you hear this is that the founders of the American Republic were not just classical liberals. They didn't call themselves that most of them thought of themselves as Republicans and they weren't just interested in John Locke. They're interested in Tacitus, and the classical theories, they're interested in the history of Rome, and the Roman Republican, the Roman empire antiquity. And so they brought to their kind of modern liberal principles other things, including Republican government, including John Adams would say that the constitution was made for moral and religious people, and it won't work anywhere else that literally, I mean, he literally says, in the preceding sentence, that we don't have a government strong enough to contend with the passions, etc. And so all I agree with, with. So ribs, point is that conservatives can't confine. Themselves to liberalism, when engaging politically now, I think, on the other side like you said, this is you said, David David, and others. This is a little bit of dancing angels on a pin. You know, people say, oh, well, we can engage, culturally, you know, we've we should be persuasive culturally. I just don't think that those lines have to be as sharp, and I were, I personally am worried when other people claiming to be conservatives if the minute you suggest a blue like what effectively is a light blue law on obscenity on whatever they see in it the seeds of totalitarian, you know, tyranny that, oh, as soon as you start judging, what happens in the public square, soon as you start forbidding, an obscenity or pornography or the March of the K, K K, or whatever it is, you're trying to prevent that you think is harmful to your community. You've you've broken all the limits and now you're you're calling for limitless tyranny in effect. I think that's wrong in hysterical. I don't think one little break of like a pure hermetically. Sealed, I don't know liberal principle apart from history, apart from social facts apart from our institutions amounts to, to that kind of totalitarian threat. So I think I think it's been wrong to call so RAB and others. Theo kratz. There's this further out collection of people that call themselves Integra lists. That's a smaller more radical camp. I think but the larger question is what else do conservatives bring to this party other than the, the liberal inheritance, and I think we I, I personally think we bring a lot. I think we bring the Republican tradition the smaller Republican tradition. I think we bring our faith and everything else to bear. And we can't consent to assist system, described by Karl Popper and others. As, as the open society, where the only ground where we're basically saying the liberal system, everybody acts, as liberals everybody, you know. So when you're Judy catering between an agnostic and a Christian. The lib the modern liberal says, okay we'll all the common ground is agnostic them. So you force the Catholic to play all the agnostics rules that extra. That's not a liberal system. It's not equal citizenship. That's not that's not full freedom. In fact, it's a kind of in itself. It becomes a kind of tyranny aware, a free society means obediently, creating this open society described by Karl Popper. That's not freedom. It's kind of pet. Do you buy the reading read calm about this yesterday says doing more reading a in this camp than I had previously, there's got him?.

Mark speaking at the White House last night, the president also talked about China and trade. He now says he's delaying tariffs on billions in Chinese imports. That were supposed to go into effect at the end of this week.

"Is coming up at three. No back to Michael Medved, an eight sixty eight AM the answer. On the Michael Medved Show leading into a weekend. Where people around the country are going to be voting certainly those states like the state I live in the state of Washington where you do mail in ballots. They're already a ton of mail and balanced that have arrived and way way ahead of normal. This is going to be a high participation election. And so. Lemme lemme speak to something that I know that many listeners have already communicated to me. Which is there are people out there. And it's not a small number of people who say, you know, what both parties. Neither party deserves to win. Both parties have problems with them. If you look at the negative campaigns and some of the stupid campaign tricks and some of the candidates on both sides. It's tough to say this one deserves to win. This deserves a not to win. But here's the basic point. I think the real question that we ought to be asking is. Let's assume that by the way, I don't entirely agree with that. I think the Republicans do deserve to win. But let's say you disagree. You say both parties neither one deserves to win. That's true. But then the question becomes which party most deserves to lose. And here you've got to say, the Democrats. Look at their conduct during the cavenaugh hearings during the entire time of Trump's presidency. This is the point that Sohrab Amari makes so brilliantly in his piece in the New York Post. The Democrats have been playing the worst kind of politics offering nothing nothing other than just a full out attempt to destroy the administration, and basically sniping at the other side. What is the positive message from Democrats that you're getting in this campaign, one eight hundred nine five five seventeen seventy six there is none. And let me give you an example, the best example of that is the caravan. I don't like the way that the president has been trying to exploit the caravan and get people terrified of it. Yes. I think it's irresponsible, but the Democrats are vastly worse because they say nothing about the caravan. Okay. If you disagree with Trump's substantive ideas and his substantive ideas are right, which is that people who are applying for asylum to the United States should not be taken into the country before their asylum is approved. They're talking about this awkward situation that has created by the caravan of having some kind of encampment outside while they hurry up and try to process these applications and most of those applications just as they were under Obama going to be turned down and should be and President Trump has also indicated that no we're not going to consider a asylum requests from people cross the border illegally. That it seems to me as also appropriate. What are the Democrats said have you heard any Democrats say what he thinks her? She thinks should be done about the caravan. Nothing. There's nothing there. It is pure negativity and for people who lament the lack of civility, and they're obviously there's guilt on both sides. But at least on the Republican side there is also a record of positive accomplishment. With tax reform. Yes. And with needed increases in the defense budget, and yes with enhancements on border security, they've already happened, and and generally with a willingness at least to work on an agenda of reform. What are the Democrats gonna work on? Let us go to your calls to Eric in San Jose, California. Eric, you're on the Michael Medved Show. Hey, Eric, you're on great. Just quick comment. Kamala Harris is behavior during the hearings with Calvin was astounding to me Representative misrepresentative, California and not only that the Senate. And I really think that she turned an inquiry into a prosecutorial situation are prosecution, downright just outrageous. And it was clearly what she was interested in was not an item of truth about Brad Kavanagh what she was interested in promoting her own campaign for president of the United States. How can people vote for a local congressional candidate? Whoever happens to be that is represented nationally by leaders like Kamala, Harris and Spartacus Cory Booker, maisy Rono crazy maisy the worst of the mall, and Sheldon Whitehouse and the rest of them. Grandstand IRS who who were truly attacking? What is a vital institution, which is the supreme court of the United States. We will get back to this in just a moment. Quick word from relief factor. A Jim in Texas wrote in I was skeptical, but my wife talked me into trying after two months of taking relief factor. I hardly knows any pain anymore. I'm so glad I found it. Relieffactor works. Yeah.

"Relief factor dot com studio on a very important Thursday. Maybe the most important Thursday for the constitution since I've been doing this show. I've been doing this show since two thousand of course, we have been attacked since. Then of course, we've been in a war that goes on now into its eighteenth year. And so the constitution is a sale by those abroad that we have McCarthyism broaden the land. We have the worst sort of slamming abroad in the land. We have the absolutely shameless and disgusting attacks on Brad Kavanagh. They have been repudiated. They have been disproved. And now the FBI has filed its new report its seventh report on Brad Kavanagh with the White House fully competent, according to Reuters right house received. The report has reviewed it knows. There's nothing to corroborate the wild charges made against him. Can it has been given to the Senate last night? Mitch mcconnell. Filed a petition for a cloture vote, which if successful will start the debate and the final thirty hour waiting period before the Senate confirmation vote, they will hold back coach your vote tomorrow. And therefore they will vote for cavenaugh on Saturday. So we can celebrate all weekend long. I want to read you piece by Saurabh Amari in the New York Post Brett, Kevin is no longer a mere supreme court nominee rights Amari whose name is now a veritable conservative 'cause one that is United the right for the first time since the two thousand sixteen primary set Republicans coralling over Trump and never Trump. Whatever the outcome of the immediate context. Get it increasingly clear that Democrats and the media establishment made an enormous miscalculation by waging total war against cavenaugh and his family liberal set out to cast the federal judge amiable. Well cred. Mildly conservative has a demon in the process, they have reminded GOP voters, and all but the most stubborn never Trump intellectuals that there are worse thing Donald Trump's out person ineptitude of congressional Republicans whatever disputes we have on our own side. The thinking on the right now goes we have to set them aside and stop the politics of personal destruction killed by a moral panic an uncritical mainstream media that sees itself as an adjunct of the anti Trump resistance. These forces have combined rights Armani into turn cabinet into a folk hero. A stand in for every American who has found himself falsely accused or railroaded by militias hearsay or facing an unfeeling bureaucracy that treats juvenile misteps is unforgivable sins. Democrats insist that they're seeking merely to smoke out a potential predator who wants a lifetime gig on the high court, but they'll find few center right voters. And I suspect independence willing to give them the benefit of the doubt any reservoir of trust that existed leaked out under the press. Blatantly underhanded moves and violations of norms. I've written in these pages about a rig process that began with a secret and initially anonymous allegation kept hidden from cavenaugh and the Republicans on the Senate Judiciary committee until the eleventh hour when the judge was poised to be confirmed, and it was too late to properly investigate and no cabin. I had already passed six F B I background checks Democrats insisted on yet another FBI probe before he could clear his name. Then the media piled on an allegation about cabinet exposing himself to a Yale classmate. Deborah Ramirez appeared in the New Yorker famous for its painstaking fact checks that was corroborated firsthand exactly zero witnesses quote magazine. Contacted several dozen classmates have Ramirez and cavenaugh regarding the incident, the authors concluded many did not respond to interview requests, other declined to comment or said, they did not attend or remember the party. So why published the claim worse? Michael ebony tweeted a declaration from women who have claimed of attendance ten parties where the punch was spiked in the boys lined up to train gang rape. Young women. The document vaguely implicated, the judge in these coagulant style, horrors senators interrogated Cavanaugh about them and the media ate it all up a few days later Evans client joy, sweating went on national TV or claims collapsed in real time. Meanwhile, the array. Accusation of highschool sexual assault remains an uncorroborated and unsubstantiated. As it was the first day. It was lodged last week Senate hearing revealed serious gaps and contradictions and Christine Blasi Ford's account and soon the entire democrat media complex shifted the goalpost. Now, the concern with cabinets temper, which was expected to suppress even senators accused him of organizing mass rapes like some warlord. And there was also a drunken college brawl at which cabinet through that story published in the New York Times was written by fellow Yale alumni who had declared her who had already declared her undying opposition to his nomination on July ninth today. It was announced the result of all this Republicans are now more fired up about the November midterm then. Democrats good. But the folk ballad of Brett cavenaugh be a warning to the liberal establishment. The next time they are tempted to go this far this low Sohrab Armani. Good on you. Listen friends. Call the Senate two two two two four three. The one to one and be very courteous when you talk with Senator Collins staff with Senator Murkowski staff, the left is going to call up and pretend to be right wing nuts. You call them up and tell them, especially if you're from Maine or Alaska, especially if you're from zone and Jeff flake, your Senator, especially if you're West Virginia.

"Yeah that's a great answer in that actually works as a great segue to a theme that you've written about in your book the new philistines and us the issue of politics which may not be that that phrase may not be on the minds of many christians but it's something that we should i think be very familiar with because it's driving so much of the cultural tumult that were now living in i've interested to hear from your perspective you know how would you define identity politics and why is identity politics a threat or wise at a challenge to orthodox christianity to define it i would say it i it's politics is a loose set of ideas all of which center around a vision of society has purely composed of a set of antagonistic forces collective groups whether that's women against men whether that's people of color against i guess dominant racial groups in western societies whether that's people who who's notions of gender sexuality don't fit in with mainstream against the mainstream and so forth but the the i think the defining factor about it will make obviously social antagonism social always existed but identity politics first of all a priority extremely on on the battle of collective identities and has a very elaborate sense of how to define who is right in a given situation which they call intersection ality designs yes there is a pression but that there's a hierarchy of oppression so therefore in a given situation when a a college professor who herself identify as lesbian of gets into a conflict with a student who is male and from let's say from north african background which one of the two is right in the situation well you have to realize that the the north african was a colonial subject so even though the other person is a female and lesbian may be his north african identity and the history of colonialism over.
