Loor.tv's Marcus Pittman and Jason Farely Make Good Christian Content
"You are Marcus Pittman, the CEO and founder of lure TV. And by the way, it's dot TV. Okay. So you're the CEO and founder, Jason Farley, you're a screenwriter, comedy writer, and poet from Spokane, Washington. What could be more useless than actually because I too am a poet and a comedy writer and I've been a screenwriter. When I met you, I said, this can't be. This can't be. This kind of creativity usually gets boxed out way before you get to this point. So how did the two of you meet and Marcus, let's go back to you before we get too far. What is your background? In other words, you're not a poet and a comedy writer. What's your background? Yeah. So I made some documentary films on abortion, put it up on YouTube, but it's called babies are murdered here. That got me a job working with a guy by the name of Jeff Durbin, who runs apology of studios and organization that, well, it was his password apology a church, and then I came in and we built together apologia studios. And where is that? That's in Phoenix, Arizona. And then we started this abortion ministry that trained up churches all over the country, how to do their own abortion ministry and provide all the resources for free. So this documentary that you made, babies are murdered here, was banned from Amazon. The sequel was banned from Amazon. So again, this is where we are folks. You make a documentary. Think of all of the sick trash. That is available on Amazon. Like unbelievable crap from the pit of hell available. And you want it, there it is, but they banned this. Now in a free country, we put up with a lot of garbage for our freedom, but they're basically saying, well, we're not going to go here. We're not going to let you make a documentary on abortion, even though most people in America would be interested in that. So because of that and other things, he said, we need to fight back by creating our own platforms. Christian filmmakers need funding and distribution. Those are the two things.

Can you tell us what those four steps are. Kind of. Why importance such. They're in every chapter. Yes it is like a secret. You know little justice league that we have secret handshake and all that kind of thing check engine. You just can't see them. The reason i wanted it to be called the learning is because as you well now and all your listeners know like we've been conditioned socialized to be a certain way for decades and it's not just about learning new tools which are great in which we all should do but it is about learning the conditioning that we've all been taught so there's forceps in the first one is and this is really great for people who are just starting out on their personal development journey or seasons people to kind of go back to brass tacks.

How Chaos In Afghanistan Emboldened Terrorism - burst 1
"Chaos in afghanistan upton as president biden withdrew military forces leading to a forceful takeover by the taliban today august seventeenth. We will dive into one of the greatest foreign policy. The buckles in modern history. Good afternoon. i'm meeting. Kim and this is the outspoken oma quote. Joe biden has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy national security issue over the past four decades and quote. Who said that not trump not a partisan congressmen or republican operative. That was robert gates. The former secretary of defense under president obama for three years and today as we see significant foreign policy the buckle unfolds in afghanistan that quote is once again reaffirmed now quickly dive into some basic background information as to what is transpiring in afghanistan back in mid april president biden announced immediate withdrawal all american troops from afghanistan by september eleventh. Twenty twenty one. Obviously september eleven was chosen dates because that was to recognize the anniversary of the september eleventh terrorist attacks and which led to the immediate was occupation of afghanistan because at the time afghanistan was harboring osama bin laden on august fifteenth. The taliban took over the capital of kabul effectively toppling. Afghanistan's governments later afghan. President ghani fled the country right before taliban leadership storm the presidential palace and thousands of afghan citizens fled to kabul international airport to skip the taliban. Now while oldest was transpiring. President biden was in camp david and he was strong criticized because he didn't have a strong message or strong immediate message in response to all of this so he traveled back to washington. Dc to address the nation from the white house one of the biggest elements that he was criticized for in the speech was the blame game in which he played and one of the obviously notable people in which she blames forwarded the buckle in afghanistan was trump and sort of implied some blame to bush and obama. He said quote when i came into office. I inherited deal that president trump negotiated with taliban on the his agreement. Us forces would be out of afghanistan. May i twenty twenty one. Just a little over three months after i took office. Us forces had already drawn down during trump administration from roughly fifteen thousand five hundred american force to two thousand five hundred troops in country. The taliban was strongest militarily. Since two dozen one the choice i had to make as your president was added to follow through on that agreement or be prepared to go back to fighting the taliban in the middle of the spring fighting season and quote. And but if you actually look at the deal that trump's state department may with taliban it's not what biden actually described in his address at a nation. Mike pompeo who was secretary of state under president trump said in a recent interview that the deal of the taliban was strictly conditional which meant that deal was was strictly predicated on the taliban committing to a peaceful transfer of power in order for america to withdraw after that commitment to a peaceful transfer of power appel said in a recent interview quote we would have demanded the taliban actually deliver on the conditions that we let out in the agreement including the agreement to engage in meaningful power sharing agreement some that which we struggled to get them to do but made it clear it was going to be required before we completed requirements to fulfil foley withdrawal and unquote. And you know there are some criticisms of the deal. Mike pompeo made with the taliban. Obviously the taliban actually pursuing a peaceful transfer of power from the afghan government was not going to happen. I mean we actually thought. That was being overly idealistic. So people had that criticism upon pales deal but even if biden did not agree with the policy that trump's state departments made in efforts to come to some sort of consensus with the taliban he kind of reversed it. I mean he was president for seven months. Which meant that. He'd independence day department and independence defense department and he could have used his powers as the chief executive to to reverse a deal that the previous administration made i mean for his entire time as president of the united states reversed nearly every single policy. That trump did while he was president. So this is no exception. I mean he should own up to the flaws of the policies in which he tried to pursue in addition to to trump he also blamed the afghan military. He said quote. The truth is but this did on for the more quickly than we had anticipated. So what happened. Afghanistan political leader escape up and fled the country the afghan military collapse. Sometimes we're not trying to fight if anything developments at the past week reinforced the ending. Us military involvement in afghanistan. No was the right decision. American troops cannot ensure not be fighting a war and dying in award. Afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves and quotes. This is honestly one of the most politically cynical things that i've ever heard biden say the afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves. Fifty thousand afghan military soldiers died in darndest entire two decades of us occupation of afghanistan. And the reason why they cannot successively defend themselves against the taliban was because biden himself pulled out a contractors and basically destroyed the afghans dependency on us military which are obviously undermined the ability of afghan military to counter act opposing taliban forces. According to the wall street journal quote in the wake of president biden's withdrawal decision the us pulled its airports air support intelligence and contractors servicing afghanistan planes and helicopters. This meant that afghan military simply cannot operate anymore and quote. Admittedly afghan leadership was significantly underprepared in the wake of the draw because as by afghan officials did not believe america will draw however according to andrew watkins a senior analyst for afghanistan and at the international prizes group research advocacy organization. There was no evidence that the taliban significantly increased their manpower and argue. The only reason why there's summer offensive was successful was due to a lack of us. Air strikes which meant that biden's administration shorter significant blame for the dismantling of the afghan government. What biden actually expect to happen when he pulled the entire the tire. Us presence from afghanistan if the afghan military dependent so much on the us occupation of afghan for the viability of their own independent military force. Then of course when they pulled out of afghanistan. The afghan military by itself was not sufficient enough to defend against the taliban if you're pulling out intelligence contracts that were vital for the dependency of the afghan military than have military is expected to fall when the taliban was advancing to the nation's capital and one of the other things that addition to buy actually blaming everyone except for himself for the marco afghanistan biden also discussed casualties in the in the afghan occupation. He said quote. Lemme ask those who wanted to wanted us to stay. How many more how. Many thousands more of american daughters and sons are willing to risk and quotes according to abc news. There's not been a single american combat death since february eighth twenty which was eighteen months ago. That's not to belittle the two thousand three hundred twelve american soldiers that lost life in afghanistan. But it is the suggests that thousands of stationed american soldiers in the lead up to the afghanistan pull out were not being bogged down by precipitous warfare in combat honestly by contrast more than fifty one thousand taliban fighters were killed by american armed forces which shows a major power imbalance in military superiority between taliban in american forces but aside from that by reportedly sent five thousand additional troops back in afghanistan to aid withdrawal despite his call for not putting sons and daughters at risk he just said that it was egregious to put american sons and daughters at risk for filled mission. So what is different about the five thousand additional troops. He sending back into afghanistan. Aren't those sons and daughters. Also at risk and to add insult injury tens of thousands of american citizens have been left behind it in afghanistan in the withdrawal according to the washington according to wall street journal an estimated ten thousand fifteen thousand new citizens remained in afghanistan so yes it is tragic. Every single american soldier died in. afghanistan is a tragedy. No one is disputing dance but suggests that afghanistan was a present danger to the current military soldiers. There from february twenty is simply not true and biden. Really closer to speech with i think when idiotic things that he said in his entire speech close with kohl's diplomacy he said quote. We will continue to support the afghan people we will lead before. Diplomacy or international influence in or humanitarian aid will continue to push for regional diplomacy and engaging prevent violence and instability will continue to speak out for the basic rights at the afghan people of women and girls just as we speak all around the world and quote and my question is just how. How can you negotiate with radical barbaric terrorist group that subject it's ethnic religious and gender minorities to brutal torture and murder. How can you negotiate with democratic for cystic regime. That is responsible for thousands of american lives. I mean honestly gonna ask nicely are gonna get on your knees and begged them to treat the afghanistan woman fairly. I mean i don't understand why biden continues to believe that's diplomacy instead of for actually using military forces is the correct way to go and this brings us back to. What was this for honestly at the end of the day with withdrawn. Us military forces from afghanistan he effectively reversed two decades of foreign policy and the initial mission of counter terrorism and preventing a staging ground for al-qaeda according to the pentagon united states government has been eighty three billion dollars in bolstering the afghanistan government and which is effectively gone to waste. I mean we spend easily billion dollars to bolster an afghan military but the afghan military is so reliance on the american forces to to help them to secure them. But when the american forces are removed from the afghan military to aid them than the billion dollar investment goes down the drain and now according to you defense and state department officials six billion dollars in military equipment including eight hundred fifty mine-resistant ambushed protected vehicles were abandoned in withdrawal which six billion dollars in. Us military equipment is now in the hands of taliban and other terrorist organizations additionally chairman of the joint chiefs of staff mark milley addressed congressional leaders and said that they will move the terrorist threats in afghanistan from medium according to axios which meant that. Obviously you're going to see a rise in terrorism and afghanistan and now that the taliban effectively controls its governments and to add insult injury the inside reports that taliban militants released thousands of prisoners from afghan prisons with links to islamic jihadist groups and al qaeda. So what has changed in the past two decades. We've tried to counter terrorism. We tried to decrease the the influence of kind of effectively imprisoning or killing al qaeda militants. We tried to decrease the the power of the taliban and we tried to effectively counteract attacks by the islamic jihadist groups. But it seems to me after this withdrawal after the dust settled what is going to be. The state of afghanistan will be similar to the state of afghanistan when we first invaded and his brings me to a new york times article which discussed heavier mackey. Who was a former first class army. Special forces soldier with several afghanistan deployments and will shot twice and he said in an interview with the new york times quote. I sacrificed a lot. I saw death every day every year. And the guys. I soaked with new would probably come to an end like this. But the chaos and made his andre after everything we gave. I just wish that had been away to leave. With honor and quote for people like mackey. There is a question that rang in numerous veterans. What was it for the situation. Afghanistan has become similar to america. I evaded two decades ago. All the bloodshed in lives lost in pursuit of counter-terrorism only define the terrorism revitalize. This president has trade the continuing efforts of veterans and committed a damaging dereliction of duty as commander in chief of the armed forces is devastating. What is happening in afghanistan and we can only hope citizens in afghanistan. Remain safe in this critical juncture. All right before we signed off. I like to extend a special.

Rampant Affirmative Action Is an Invitation to Cronyism and Corruption
"When you have ramp affirmative action. This is so obvious. It is an invitation to cronyism and corruption. All these racial quota laws to try to hire blacks and south. Africa is the heaviest on small businesses. Where large mega corporations. They have no problem complying to this. Now we talk a lot of in the free market space of which you know turning point is part of and we spend a lot of time in about burdensome regulation and remember we love markets as a means to an end not as an end to a means meaning. We're not trying to get to a place of free markets. We're trying to use free markets. When you spoke to expand human flourishing protect private property rebuild the american family and if we have to insert ourselves into a market when there's not a desirable outcome like families getting obliterated because of some corporation. I did something that we should be happy to do that. We should be reluctant to do it at times but market should work for us. We should not work for market. This puritanical view of free markets is a libertarian idea. That's fine i agree with libertarians. On guns and lockdowns and against mandatory vaccines do not agree with them on a quasi religious view of markets. Can that's a different podcasts. For a different time.

Do you want to crush the laundromat in spokane washington. Do you want to crush the cobbler in riverside california then all of a sudden. Tell them that they have to comply with this top down racial demographic edicts that's going to raise the cost of doing business and that is precisely what has happened in south africa.

When will the West Seattle Bridge be fixed, and how much will it cost?
"Has been nearly a year since the West Seattle Bridge closed down because of the cracking concrete, and now we're getting some prediction on when it might be open again. Here's Chris Sullivan, and that prediction is the end of June 2022 that is the target goal for returning traffic to the West Seattle Bridge, But that's about a space Civic is the city can be. I would like to be very, very specific about the time and date when you will be able to drive across the bridge. I cannot give that to you today that Seattle's mobility director, Heather Marks, who also also cautions West Seattle residents that include herself that even when the repairs are complete, that doesn't necessarily mean the traffic is going to immediately return. This is not a repair where we're just going to drop tools when we're done and open up the bridge, too. Traffic. We want to make sure that this is safe and we want to be able to measure and see how the bridge and the repairs respond to additional live load. Drivers should expect that the lanes to will open little by little over the days and weeks after repairs are complete, primarily just for safety and to prevent backups. We also need to think about how to create the conditions under which when we open up that first lane Everybody doesn't you know, heard to the bridge and we have backups from follow. Right, Fareed I five. So we need to think about that to the city has reached the 30% design Fresh Holden milestone on this project, and the request for bids went public yesterday. It's gonna be an interesting partnership. The way that they're doing. This is that they're bringing the contractor on board at this point. That will allow the contractor the winning contractor to work with the city on final design, from 30% completion to the end that allows them to see any potential problems and design as they're doing it that also helps speed up the process. It's expected that the repairs we will begin in November, repairs to the lower Spokane Street Bridge or also included in this contract that needs a little shoring up works and cracked filling, and it also might need some repair to the center locking mechanism. Mark says. It is possible that there will be times when both the high and the low bridge will be closed the same time, But she expects those to be brief. To the extent that we have to close the low bridge. We're gonna aim for weekends or holiday weekends to make sure that we're disrupt. Thing as few people as possible. Now, Speaking of that low bridge discussions are ongoing about how to allow more access to that lower bridge on call. Medical workers have been added to the list of people who can use that bridge while racing to the hospital. But they end up getting it a photo enforcement ticket and then have to prove they were an emergency call to get that wiped away. Not really the most efficient way to do things. Seattle police have told me that automated photo enforcement issued more than 7500 tickets in the 1st 15 days of February. That's just a two week period. But since then, and more the word has gotten out. The city says that more than 2000 fewer vehicles a day are now using that bridge, which means okay, maybe we have a little extra capacity. And there's a big push right now to allow people who need life saving medical care like chemotherapy or dialysis to use the bridge, but The problem is Terminal five, is going to reopen for business on Harbor Island next year. And so the city is worried that if they allow more access now, they'll have to take it away later and they don't want to do that. They don't want to carry that. Briscoe start opening a lot more. We'll be exactly because they're going to see significant amount of freight traffic. And because of that, they're going to see the capacity go away. As for the money, the dollar figures in all of this $175 million is the budget. That covers the repairs to the West Seattle Bridge. The lower Spokane Street Bridge also includes the money already spent for the showing process, traffic mitigation improvements being made in West Seattle. The monitoring work city already has about 124 million of that, and it's aggressively looking for Mawr's, according to Sam, Zimbabwe, the head of the Transportation Department. We're moving are a lot of different paths forward. We don't project that funding is going to be the challenge that Holds us up in this, but we still have some some fresh holds across and make sure that we have the resources needed to bring this resource back online.
Vaccines limiting COVID-19 spread among Washington’s older population
"State of Washington chose to vaccinate its most elderly population first, and there's been an obvious payoff. Is Dr Frank of Alaska was who is the chief health officer officer in Spokane County. Please stay steady. Will continue to go well, if you were elderly people are testing positive for covert, which he says is great news, considering older Americans are more likely to have the most serious illness after contracting the virus. For example, he told Kxl why in Spokane during the first week of March that county on Lee 18 of its new covert cases for the week, we're in adults over the age of 70.

How the pandemic is affecting states unequally
"Of the characteristics of this virus economy as we have said on this program. I cannot tell you how many times is how uneven its effects have been on people black and brown and low income. Americans do in way worse in health and jobs and just getting by than whiter and wealthier populations are uncomfortable. As to how they're doing depends on what industry they're in and on states some of which have been really hit by this pandemic less revenue from income and sales taxes and higher virus expenses and some of which states that is doing all right so as the senate takes up. President biden's relief bill this week. And it's three hundred and fifty billion dollars in aid to state and local governments marketplace's mitchell hartman starts us off with a tale of several states. The pandemic recession has delta significant blow to tax collections. State revenues were down by nearly two percent from december. Last year overall. All but according to the urban brookings tax policy center tax revenues actually increased in twenty two states. This disparity has a lot to do with the mix of jobs in layoffs in a state. Says carl davis at the institute on taxation and economic policy so many lower income people have been laid off higher income. People have been much more likely to keep their jobs so tax. Revenues are down by double digits in states with lots of low-wage tourism jobs in hotels bars and restaurants florida and but states with more jobs that can be done from home at higher wages. Like in high tech and professional services are faring better. Washington's one example thinks in part to folks like darby megan of spokane he's a manager for tech startup. his wife's an accountant for an architecture firm. They're both working from home. We've maintained our salaries and that's been huge blessing. Haven't had to take a step back hours or anything. Like that with the stimulus checks. That was a nice little bonus. The couple owns a home. That's gone up in value. So they're paying more property tax but they've improved their overall balance sheet. We've been able to save significantly more right. We're not eating out as much and they made one really big purchase. A new van built into an rv. So we've sort of taken some of our vacation money that you budget and instead may domestic vacation mobile now not every high earner has come through the pandemic recession unscathed. Fiona greek at the g. P. morgan chase institute has been tracking household checking balances. There are some high income families that have seen cuts in their income cuts in their salaries but most of seeing their bank balances and assets grow and she says one reason is the booming stock market the broader trend.

He also enjoyed making his own beer on the side and joined a homebrew club known as worked or warriors at the rotating tap in his spare time when he wasn't working on new concoctions and recipes. He spent his time hanging out at dry fly. distillery next door. He became friends with the team. At Dry I fly in chatted with him often about all things to expand their operations and open a tasting room. They decided they wanted to have a house. Ginger Beer anybody's not familiar. Ginger beer is a non alcoholic. Beverage made by fermenting ginger east and Sugar Dylan jumped on the opportunity and began testing out different flavors and ratios. Does he enjoy the process but hauling around large kegs to and from the distillery was exhausting. This got him thinking. What if you could make something that had the flavor flavor of Ginger Beer but without the weight or time commitment to bring it? He began to experiment. Further came up with a recipe for making a craft syrup that could be used Houston cocktails or mixed with Soda Water. He started with the Syrup. Composed of fresh ginger root lemon juice lime juice and brown sugar then instead of carrying around kegs eggs a finished product. You just need to add an ounce of Syrup to four ounces of Soda Water You can have a delicious beverage either non alcoholic whereas base for cocktails while it took some time to get the flavor profile perfectly. Distilled only cost him about a thousand dollars to cover his initial inspections commercial kitchen riddle and the cost of goods and supplies to facilitate production. The dry fly. distilling team was also impressed. With Dylan's creation. They encouraged him to take it to the next level by making it in larger batches. This required a lot of work in research. But Dylan Dillon was up for it. He learned that. In order to sell perishable items he would need to acquire certifications from the Washington Department of Agriculture. Each certification took about five weeks to a complete between studying and testing. But he wasn't a rush so for the next year he worked on them periodically all while continuing to protect his recipe. That hard work paid off the certifications indications allowed Dylan to improve the quality and integrity of his syrups so now side-hustle syrups and that is the name by the way hustle. syrups is officially in business. He started by selling at local farmers. Markets customers enjoy the flavor. He brought in a prophet right away with that profit. Human desire to share his products more widely. I version was only available as a refrigerated syrup and so was therefore it more limited in its distribution in order to make it more marketable heated to make it shelf stable and hand just what that came with another round of certifications determined to create the highest quality product. He once again spent time and some money to get those additional credentials else. That effort paid off as well as he is now able to sell side Hustle syrups to local retailers eager. To get the word out he began cold calling doing demos and approaching pushing stories directly. He would bring samples of his product and asked to speak to a buyer as a result of his persistence. He's been able to build solid relationships which in turn has increased distribution achieving his goal throughout the process. The folks that dry fly distillery that original inspiration have continued to support. They've used his products in some of their drinks. And they've just teamed teamed up to produce a new canned cocktail between the SYRUPS.
