The Rise of the Fourth Reich With Steve Deace and Daniel Horowitz
"Is a bold new book out that is taking the Internet by storm, the rise of the fourth Reich. Are you even allowed to say that? By two incredible people, Steve dace and Daniel Horowitz will both of them join us right now. It is the new book rise of the fourth Reich confronting COVID fascism with a new Nuremberg trial, so this never happens again. Stephen Daniel, welcome back to the program. Oh, he's going to be with you, Charlie. Thanks. Steve, I'll start with you because we had Daniel on recently. I mean, come on, comparing this to the Third Reich fourth grade, isn't that a little bit too intense, the skeptics would say, the people in the middle they say, why does everything have to be compared to the 1930s? Steve, your response. Because we keep repeating history and it doesn't just repeat Charlie, it also rhymes. And hey, I was once a strict enforcer of Godwin's law, okay? Which is essentially a philosophical law that if two people debate and argue over a point long enough, one of them will eventually descend to calling the other or not. That's exactly right. And I was a strict enforcer of this for most of my career, it's very hard, though, to ignore the parallels. When you talk about what has been ushered in via a biomedical fascist state, literally every issue that we have right now in this culture that is of a systemic origin. I was just listing you talk to Carrie Lake and Blake masters in Arizona, talking about what's going on in the border. Why we have a 100% more greater surge over the border than we had a year ago and far greater than we had under the previous president. Well, what provided the mechanism for them to create Dropbox? I'm sorry, ballot harvesting. I'm sorry. The most secure election of our lifetimes. What mechanism came in for them to finally do what they, we stopped them from doing this for decades, and we actually had the momentum going our way with voter ID laws and over 30 states. Provided them the opportunity here to commit the crime that we saw on election day 2020 was COVID.
Stephen Colbert Calls FBI Mar-a-Lago Raid 'Christmas'
"Here is Stephen Colbert in his monologue last night on CBS. What was it today? It was like 96° outside. Thank you all for standing up in this heat and being here tonight. Of course, it may be hot out there. You're the heroes. They hydrated. It may be hot outside, but in here, it's Christmas. 'cause yesterday, we all got the present we wanted. FBI agent three. That's the most beautiful sentence America has ever produced. Right up there with we put cheese inside the crust. Kind of makes your skin crawl, doesn't it? The man literally giggling like a teenage school girl. FBI agents raided Mar-a-Lago. If you want to want to consider the most tone deaf reaction, imaginable, that would be it. But that, but he's saying out loud what they're all thinking on the left.
Inflation Climbed 8.5% in July
"Inflation is raging on inflation remains at historic highs, good luck watching team Biden spin this number 8.5% from July 21 to July 2022. The consumer price index didn't change from June to July, inflation continues to soar food prices are squeezing, ordinary Americans, and they're just giddy that they can keep the orange man out of The White House.

"stephen m" Discussed on The Bancroft Brothers Animation Podcast
"Look at that. I'm trying to forget about that. Anyway, a gig's a gig. But you know, one of the things that we have in common that we talked about before and you mentioned it earlier was humorous illustration. Now, that's also the name of a book. There was a very famous book that came out when we were both younger called humorous illustration and I remember Tom and I got that. I don't know who gave it to us. It was probably a Christmas present or something, but it was one of those amazing books that really dug deep into interviewing and showcasing different artists that did in the category of humorous illustration, but they were mostly mad magazine artists. There's a couple of commercial artists in there too. I remember, but I was, I read that book from front to back. I still have the copy that I own when I was like a teenager. It's shabby and wrecked and all that kind of stuff. But both Tom and I were highly influenced by that. That's where I learned about Sergio argonne, who had a profile in there. Oh, Paul coker junior. We're just gonna throw out some names here for mad magazine pass. And then more drucker was in there. Bill Berg, I think not Bill burg, I'm sorry. I worked with a guy named Bill Berry. The other bird, Dave bird. Oh, Dave Burke, yeah. I think that Davis was in there. And that was put together by, I believe it was Nick meglin. So Nick maglin was the one who wrote the book and he was the editor of mad magazine. So he had all these connections. But what was great about it was it did give you some great insight into these artists minds. At a time really when where else can you get this sort of information from? Yeah, and there was another magazine at the time that Tom and I found out, actually, I found out about this one later, but that Nick meglin, I really, you know, if you guys can find a copy of that anybody in this name that's really into humorous illustration, caricature, just really good drawing and draftsmanship. Those early mad magazine artists are all top of the top of the charts for being the ones that inspired all of us. This generation, for sure, and generations to come. But the other one was the cartoonist profiles. It was a magazine that came out later on called cartoonist profiles. It's now long gone. But for a while there, it was humorous illustration and cartoonist profiles. There was no Internet when we were young. So gasp if you can right now, if you're young, you know, draw that in for a moment. We literally had to go to the library. We had to find any resources we could. They were always in print. You couldn't find any other way of finding stuff. And so it was those early influences that were hugely impactful, right? Yeah. Absolutely. You know, and with that, I think there was just a great point in there where when we were growing up without the Internet and we were trying to discover these artists, whether we found them on they could be a TV guide cover. Wow, who is this artist? So you saw it on the magazine and really we were digging and we were searching and going to the library trying to find these things and they were such a clamoring that now it's so easy to get it that I think it's almost overwhelming where that there's something may be missing there where you don't appreciate it as much because it's so easy to get, but when you're when you're starving, so to speak you're hungry. You're just like, man, I got to get that book that just came out and it was almost like a special thing and also there was a limitation of artists I would say we had our ten 15 core artists that we were really influenced by and study and now there's just thousands, right? It's almost like overwhelming. It's like, where do I begin? Should I really study? What should I really be looking at where back then? It was like, no, I'm going to study this guy because he does hair really well. I'm going to draw from this guy because he draws hands really well. I'm going to draw from this woman, whoever it is, it's just like, you're just soaking that in. And for me, that was always, I have such like you. I know it has such a huge book collection. You know, something that I think artists don't really have today. You almost don't need it with Pinterest and tumblr and everything else. But you almost don't need it. And yet, gosh, and here's where we're sending to old guys. But there's just something I have about pulling up old book. There's a memory aspect, I guess. When I find that when I come across in my collection that humorous illustration book that we were referencing, I go back, it's like listening to an old song on the radio. I go back to what it was to be a young junior artist soaking up this information and memorizing each one of the drawings. I still have that with the certain books, like the illusion of life. I remember studying that and consuming it for a good all summer long when I first found out about that book. And I looked at it every single day and studied every page, read every story, but more than that, the artwork.
A Maricopa Madness Update
"This guy running Maricopa County, the elections who is an aspirational Democrat masquerading as a Republican, his name is Steven richer. And he gets completely celebrated by national media. So does Katie Hobbs, who's running for governor Secretary of State. Steven richer is the Maricopa County recorder. That's his official title. Maricopa County recorder. Listen to this piece of tape here. Back in 2020, how he reacted in 2020 election and then he invokes Mark fincham, who interestingly enough is now going to be running for Secretary of State in Arizona, play cut 47. Mark fincham is running for secretary of state process that if the election was completely fraudulent as he says, why would you run for secretary? What do you think dominion is going to rig it in your favor this time? Do you think that fraud doesn't apply to the Secretary of State's race? Do you think that things have materially changed since 2020 because Michelle Eugene Rita passed one pebble Bill? Why are you running if you do not believe in these elections? I would suggest that his actions speak a lot router than his words. Thanks. This guy's a total freak. And why is he running? It's because you do the courageous and the moral thing. Even though you know there might be problems, maybe you can overwhelm the system, Stephen richer, last time in 2020, the election was decided by 10,000 votes and based on revelations in 2000 mules, you allowed and enabled a ballot trafficking operation all across Maricopa happened in other parts of the state as well in Yuma county in particular. Completely and totally unhinged.
What's Happening in Arizona Is an Abject Disgrace to the Modern World
"What's happening in Arizona is an abject disgrace to the modern world. And this is not the first time this has happened. This is the fourth election cycle this has happened in Arizona. And every time we try to challenge the people in Arizona to fix this, Stephen richer, the state House, the state Senate, we get condescendingly talked to as if, oh, you don't know what you're talking about. We're not going to put up with this anymore. We are now 36 hours, plus of polls closing. We are now in the 38th hour, and there are still a 125 to a 175,000 ballots still outstanding in Maricopa County. I believe one of the reasons is because the establishment in Arizona wants to try to rob every day they can. From Kerry Lake to give her the victory speech, transfer her entire operation to a general election. Now we are about 93 92 days away from the midterm elections. You want to hear something even crazier? We are 60 days away from early voting. 60 days away. In a governor's race, that could be anywhere between a 75 to $100 million governor's race, or a Senate race that will be a 150 to a 175 million every day literally costs 2 millions of dollars. And so if you are delaying this unnecessarily of which, there is no excuse whatsoever. With the Maricopa County supervisors and Steven richer and all these people in Maricopa County are doing, you are literally able to give an in kind donation to Katie Hobbs.
Economist Stephen Moore Joins Brandon to Discuss the Recession
"Like I promise you yesterday, I was going to bring on a person who's an expert who's smarter than me on these topics. One thing you guys are going to know about me is that I speak with common sense, I'm authentic, but I'm not the smartest person in the world. So I recruit smarter people to talk about certain subject matter, so we all become smarter together. So I'm going to bring in a gentleman who I think is amazing. Stephen Moore, he's a distinguished fellow in economics at the heritage foundation. He's also the founder of the committee to unleash prosperity. Steven, welcome to the off state of show. It is still fair to be with you. Thanks for having me. And I know great expert on this stuff. But you know what? You don't have to be an expert to understand what's going on with this economy right now. It's just a disgrace. Yes, yes, I think that most people will understand that it's a little bit of common sense sprinkled in with facts, and I think we'll understand, but I have a few questions for you, then I had is that are we in a recession? Well, the dictionary definition of a recession two quarters of negative growth. And unfortunately, we've had that and we confirm that yesterday. Now look, it's a mild recession. It's not we were slightly negative in the first quarter and slightly negative in the second quarter. But the biggest problem right now, I'm calling this a recession in people's personal income. In other words, what's going on right now is that the inflation rate is running at about 9 to 9 and a half percent. And wages are rising by about 5 to 5 and a half percent. So I think the math is pretty easy there, right? If you've got 5% wage growth in 9% inflation, you're following behind. And by my best estimates, the average family when you adjust for the inflation that's out of control has lost about 3000 to $5000 in income in just the last year. That's a lot of money. Let's say you got a family with a 60, $75,000 income. That's a big loss
Sebastian Checks In With 'Mr. War Room' Stephen K. Bannon
"War room is with us now, Steve Bannon welcome first. Thank you, doctor gorka, always glad to be here. All right, let's we could speak for hours. You're doing an incredible job on war room. I've got a long list of stuff. I want to ask you my team is asking me to ask you. But first, I need the latest update from you. They are coming after you hard and heavy. How are you doing Steve and how are you feeling about taking your fight to the next level for contempt of Congress or all Americans should be held in contempt of Congress because that's what they deserve. But give us the truth. But look, it's a part of a process. Everybody's under pressure, they're coming after everybody. I mean, Washington Post announced the other day that Justice Department is looking at president Trump. But if you're going to stand up for your country now, when patriots need to stand up, they're going to come for you. They're going to come for you through lawfare. They're going to come through physical violence. I just got swatted a couple of weeks ago, very dangerous situation, hundred officers out front with weapons drawn. And I get threats all the time, but everybody does. If you're going to do this, you got to commit to do it. And like I said, it is what it is. We're all about victory. As you know, when you set out to take Vienna, take Vienna. And that's all I'm focused on. Everything else, everything they're coming at with me is noise. I've got great lawyers, we're obviously going to win on appeal, but it's just part of a process. I appreciate everybody's support.

The Unfair Attacks on Josh Hawley Have Nothing to Do With January 6
"Re opt to my. Comment on Saturday that this is unintentionally quite revealing. It's a Tim Graham of media busters clip of Stephen Colbert and Chris Hayes talking to each other. Demonstrating the ill effects of the blue bubble on people without legal or training legal training or knowledge of history. I mean, they are living in a blue bubble where they hear one thing and one thing only which is the one 6th committee is a great success. It's not. Got low viewership as national events go. And it's not changed any minds to any significant degree. And it deeply unfair and the American people know it's deeply unfair. And that deep unfairness was best demonstrated by the sideswipe of Josh hawley, who has got nothing to do with what Trump did or didn't do on January 6th, the former president's conduct allegedly the point of the hearing on Thursday night, but they began with a clip of Mitch McConnell to run him over and they ended with one of Josh hawley to shame him and my hypocrite, nonsense, by the way, for mobs coming at you on the other way did not call on people to take over the capitol. Just pure two minutes of hate, George Orwell stuff, if you've read 1984. But I genuinely don't think that Chris Hayes and Stephen Colbert have any idea what they're saying.
The Unintentional Revelations of the Left
"Saw a tweet from Tim Graham over at news busters that got my attention. And Tim Graham over at news busters had a clip of Chris Hayes of MSNBC, smart lefty, Stephen Colbert, funny lefty, talking to each other on Stephen Colbert's Late Show, which Greg gutfeld now beats every night in a revolution against late night being overtly political. Stephen Colbert is very, very left wing and therefore he's very, very political and sent her right America won't watch him. And NBC hadn't figured this out yet. No one's figured out. Why does no one trust elevation 'cause everyone's overtly political and they don't tell you. But sometimes in exchange can be unintentionally revealing. So I posted this on Saturday with just that comment. It's not much of a comment, right? It just says, this is an intentionally quite revealing.

Caller: Zeldin's Attacker Is Free, Jan. 6 Detainees Still in Isolation
"Person not to be called a gentleman that attacked congressman Zelda last night. Okay, he got released right in the middle of the night. Yet those people that were taken in and put under arrest on the January 6th, a lot of them haven't been able to see their lawyers or their families yet. And this is this, how long, you know, that's just so right. You're so right. You're so correct. There's no words. There are no words, there are people rotting in jail because of their trespassing and their lawlessness on January 6th. One of these things is not like the other. What's worse? Walking through and I'm not saying everybody just walked through the capitol. But what's worse? There are some people being prosecuted for being where they didn't belong, right? Not if you're Stephen Colbert's film comedy crew, not if you're a Trump supporter. But if you hop up on a stage with a weapon and try to assassinate a sitting U.S. congressman who's running for governor, you're sprung almost immediately.
No Charges For 'Late Show' Crew Arrested on Capitol Hill
"Of you are pretty upset about this Colbert story and you should be. Stephen Colbert's 9 gets off. Meanwhile, January 6th defendants are in solitary confinement. Why are we putting up with this?

Why hasn't a state attorney general indicted Hunter Biden for some of his crimes? I guarantee you he's broke some of the crimes of some Republican state. Some prostitute brought across state lines from Arkansas to Tennessee or wherever. You see, the left thinks were weak. They protect their own. The Department of Justice drops charges when it's somebody on their team and right now, Steve Bannon is in front of a jury, potentially to go to jail for contempt of Congress, Peter Navarro will soon follow. They raided James O'Keefe's apartment. They raided Rudy Giuliani's apartment. James Comey and Lisa page and Peter strzok are all walking free laughing at us.

"stephen m" Discussed on The Eric Metaxas Show
"Absolutely. Young scientists, I was working as a geophysicist for a local oil company in Dallas. I had always been interested in the big questions as you were saying before. The intersection between science and philosophy. So as an undergrad I used to I did a double major in physics and geology largely my father's urging to stick with a hard sciences, but I was snuck over and took at least one philosophy class. Anyway, this conference came to Dallas and it was called Christianity challenges the university and international conference of atheists and theists. It sounded pretty intriguing. They had three panels, one on the origin of the universe, one on the origin of life and one on the origin and nature of human consciousness. And the panels were stocked with people who were either self identified theists in their worldview or self identified scientific naturalist or materialist. And in the very first panel, one of the most prominent speakers of the conference, Alan sandage, a great cosmologist and astrophysicist. And I meant sandage, not helpful. Well, I mean, he had worked for Hubble. He was no, I know. So anyway, he went on to extend Hubble's research program, and he had been a longtime well-known as an agnostic Jewish scientist. And at the conference he announced the religious conversion that he'd actually become a Christian. In 1985, he announces this at the conference. And explains that, and then proceeded to give a talk on the evidence of the new cosmology. What we'd learned from multiple sources, the light coming from the distant galaxies, the cosmic background radiation, all the different key evidences for the Big Bang or the idea that the universe had a beginning. And then I remember him, you know, he was not in a way he was not very happy about having this need to change his worldview thrust upon him, but that's where he was sort of very grave sort of figure, and he said, here is evidence for what can only be described as a super space, natural event. There's no way this, meaning that evidence we have at the beginning of the universe could have been explained or predicted within the realm of physics as we know it. And of course, that's the same point I was making before. You can't explain the origin of the physical world physically because before there was a physical world, there was no physics to do the explaining. American style doing that hey there folks, you are listening to a special Socrates in the city event. We do this once in a while because these Socrates and the city events are spectacular and I thought, let's get them out on the radio now and again, especially during the summer, I want everybody to know about Socrates in the city. So we did an event a few months ago with Stephen Meyer. You're listening to that today. He wrote the book the return of the God hypothesis. We're airing that whole conversation that I had with him in both hours today. You've been listening to that already. Obviously. And I want to say that we want you to know about future Socrates and city events. So you want to sign up, you can either sign up for my newsletter at Eric metaxas dot com, or you can go right to Socrates in the city dot com and just sign up for the Socrates in the city newsletter. You get extra stuff there. That's Socrates and city information. But we've got so many wonderful interviews. We have not aired this one until today. So this is my more recent conversation with Stephen Meyer. Which was in Pennsylvania, just a few months ago. As you know, we've just gotten my New York event with Apollo 16 astronaut Charlie duke. We finally got that up as a video at Socrates in the city dot com. So we're excited to kind of be back on track. We will be sending out information on our fall series, I don't want to misspeak about dates or names or anything like that. So I've said a few things, but just so you know that you're right, we're not sending out this information officially for probably another week or two when we've got everything all buttoned up. But it's very exciting. I believe we're doing an event in Houston. I'm pretty sure we're going to be doing three events in New York. We know that Socrates in the city is something I've been doing since literally 2000 and now it's an interview format, but we are so excited I mentioned that Jordan Peterson and his wife, I got to meet with them the other day. They were very interested in doing an event. We were not clear on the dates, but I just want to say it's exciting. And I want you all to know about it. And if you can't get to these events, at least we can share them via video. And today, the audio track right here. So this is a Socrates in the city event that we're playing that only recently released. I did it a couple of months ago with doctor Steven Meyer. He's just amazing..
"stephen m" Discussed on The Paul Finebaum Show
"Just want to let you know, followed your career from your days in the newspaper and I've always respected your opinions and even though you were a Tennessee grant. You've usually laid it to a straight appreciated. Thank you very much. But I thought a little bit that is disingenuous to say that jamison Williams injury did not affect the outcome of the ball game when he was in the game in where he played the previous time. The Georgia defense really, they couldn't cover. And they really, when he left the game, even curb street says landing goes to all the players one side of the game, there's no reason not now. And they had to respect his speed and had to respect his talent for his ability to get behind them. And when he was out of the game, it wasn't just he was out of the game. It was he and mitchy were out of the game. And that was 200 past receptions, not only the field and that was on the field in the previous game. And yes, Georgia Warren, fair and square and injuries are part of the game and I really hate to see a kid go down on artificial turf without contact. It happens a lot. But really truly for us to say that the Georgia beef and Alabama team that was the Alabama team that they beat them 37 days ago, it's not right. And it's not true. They will beat the Alabama team that was on the field. Let me say you're right on every account, but it really doesn't make a bit of a difference, because it's part of the game. And I hated that he went out. Do I think Alabama could have won with him? I don't know. Doesn't matter. They lost. As he won, I get it, but and truly. And like I said, but it just it's always rankled me a little bit when I know injuries are part of it. And football is a violent sport. And so yes, it is, but it's always rankled me when even when we've done it, it's like that you just say, oh, well, they beat somebody, but if you had to put the teams on the field full strength against full strength or like they were 37 days ago, I do not believe that Georgia would have won the ball game. They did win it because of the team that was there. And they were in the young kids that dropped passes and they'll learn from it. And Bama will be a more experienced football team going into the spring and into the next season. And but not without least. Listen, I appreciate what you said. And I really don't care because that is just part of football. It's part of everything. And Georgia had plenty of players who were heard Alabama probably was in worse shape, but it's still Alabama. It's not like Cincinnati, where they lose one of their top corners or their quarterback and they have no chance. I mean, this is university of Alabama to recruit such a highest level. And jamison Williams was a transfer by the way. It wasn't like that was something that Alabama planned on a couple of years ago. They benefited by getting him. But you just can't, you can make any argument you want, and it still doesn't matter, because the game is over in Alabama lost. And I don't know why that is so difficult to accept. I really don't. Let's continue with more calls here. At 8 5 5, two four two 7 two 8 5 and Mike is up next. Hey, Mike. How's it going? Very well. Thank you. If it wasn't for you and your show and the SEC network, I wouldn't even watch football. Anyway, I'm Mike from Kentucky, and I'm being held captive hero. I was born in jazz for Alabama so you know. I do. But hey, you got a good season. Ten, three, not bad. Just do it. The reason I called the first of all, congratulate George on the sign game. You know, your hand at the cards are dealt, and you play them the best way you can. And that puts this season in the room here. Having said that, my question now is all these vacancies and head coaching jobs and NFL. How do you think that affects some of the coaches in the SEC in particular? I think it's going to have much effect at all. The NFL has become a very narrow coaching hiring situation where mostly you're seeing coordinators bounce around from job to job. You're not seeing the urban Meyer type of hires or the Nick sabans from yesteryear spur your it's become a system oriented league and that's really what I'm hearing right now. Mainly former coaches, and by the way, I think Stephen M said one thing that you need to keep your eye on though. And that's Joe judge. He is highly thought of by Nick Saban and don't be surprised to see him end up in some position. He was a giants coach at Alabama. I man is up next. Hey, hey, I'm in. Good afternoon. Hey, good afternoon, Paul. Thanks for taking my call. I was listening to the guy on the cell phone while ago. And he's talking about Alabama lost a couple players. This is not the same thing that meet the living daylight side of him, but isn't that the same Alabama team that auburn pushed around the entire game? Yeah, and by the way, Maggie and Williams were in that game. And by the way, Alabama had the Heisman Trophy winner recorder back. They lost to a walk on. But in the open game, that's the same team that all been faced came to beat Georgia and auburn pushed them all over the place. I didn't mean to be surely with the guy, but it's too late to use Williams as it's too bad, but that's happened, okay? It's too bad. 11 years ago, but he did. Then they're not ever going to accept the fact that it doesn't matter what anybody's done in 40 years, 6 years or 80 years. It matters what took place Monday night. And Monday night, Georgia wolf badass. With each day that goes by, it matters less. That's right. And let me ask you something. I know there will be a wake or something. Legend and Jim, leaving the show and we're going to have awake and we'll invite everybody and some people bring fried chicken. Do I bring tighter salad again this year? Is they both quit numerous times?.

"The pride passion then pageantry of college football lives here. This is the Paul find bomb show hour one podcast. And welcome in. It is Thursday and we are rare to go here as we continue and we'll get to some headlines. We have a couple of really interesting things for you a few minutes about how others around the country are perceiving what we do here. I'm talking about the callers to the show in the aftermath of Monday night. Let's get right to some headlines and Jameson Williams declaring for the draft. This was expected even though some wondered would the ACL injury change his thinking? He's a projected high pick. He's expected to recover in time for next season, but what happens after that? So the threat is here, the college football season, what happens next? Is it going to all work out? We'll talk to one of our featured guests in a few minutes about the future of the college football season, whether it's gotten to regional or not. We rather like it down here. In coaching carousel, is it over or does Jim Harbaugh started all over again? The Michigan job would be plumb haba expected to be wooed by a number of NFL clubs. Look at Sam. The bam pitman. That's not really true, but he's the fan favorite for the Paul Bryan award. He's got those shades. Pitman's going to make some money in the off season after a spectacular year. Give him the cash. Let's talk about what we are going to do over these next few hours, a number of guests will be dropping in. Stephen a Smith, actually, that's not correct. Stephen M Smith, the mood in tea town. Pete daml. Am I reading that correctly? ESPN college football reporter, I am reading that correctly because today it was announced that Pete is joining ESPN. Nikki fargus. Great coach. Now analyst. She'll join us to talk about a huge day in the SEC. Ken Smith Meyer, the judgment man. And Peter stoddard, the Georgia man. And your phone calls at 8 5 5, two four two 7 two 8 5. Let's start with Hugh in deep gap. North Carolina. Hello, Paul. Could we spend just a minute kind of thinking about where the future is going to how it's going to play out for the greatest coach we've seen in the conference and many, many years. A lot of guys like Adolf rep and Joe Paterno and Bear Bryant. They kind of hung on longer than they probably could have should have. And the back end of their careers were not as brilliant as the mid section. And when you stop and kind of think about this, there's a quarter of a century difference in age between Kirby smart lane camp and Nick Saban. I got a feeling Nick Saban's going to pull a John Wooden and go out on top what do you think? Well, I mean, everyone wants to. It's one of the hardest things in the world to do, as you know, you having watched a lot of coaches. It is very difficult. And it is a fact after the after one of the championships, I think it was the one in 17, Sabin contemplated leaving. I don't think he did it last year. And I think it's something you have no matter who you are when you're in a high pressure environment. Usually when the music stops and the lights are dim, you think, okay, what do I want to do? Do I want to keep doing this? And you don't know. I mean, we assume a lot of it all has to do with when the process begins. And I for one, I began to think about this. I can see long after coach Saban's in his rock and chair clip in coupons. Kirby smart lane kiffin and Lincoln rally still in the mad hunt for national championships. So the bottom line for me is, if you're a dedicated Alabama fan, you better really appreciate what you got, because it ain't going to last forever. One more thing and this kind of came to me listening to ledge in the last couple of days. You know, he's kind of like that character from all in the family. Archie bunker, except he doesn't have the warm quality that Archie would manifest when Edith would poke, man. And I think about that sum, that tension is one of the reasons you have such a great audience because if everybody made perfect sense and was polite, who the hell would care about? Stupid behavior of some of your favorite callers that set you apart, Paul, and let's hope they keep it up. I don't really give a damn what anybody thinks about it. Thank you. Appreciate it. And speaking of that, in a couple of minutes, we're going to play a clip. We don't do this very often. But the Brad legend. Conflict on Tuesday made some the number one sports show in Boston the next day. And then the legend called yesterday made it as well as today. So we're going to recapture a famous talk show in Boston in a few minutes that has apparently found us down here in the Deep South. And we will let you hear what others are saying about us in just a couple of minutes. Daryl is up next in Georgia. Hello Daryl. Hey Paul, first, I want to make a porn. Okay, I thought about this. If you going back, looking at Georgia this year, we've opened a season against number three Clinton. They gave up zero touchdowns. We played number two, Michigan and orange bow. The VPS gave up one touchdown. We played Alabama for the next championship game. The deepest gave up one touchdown. And all three of those games, the defense also scored two touchdowns..

"Done here got the Christmas party with the family and an hour here and getting a chance to talk some college football and some college football playoffs. You can't beat down the stick. Well, so I have not used the C word on the show today, which of course is always a smart strategy just in general in life. But I have not used it today on the show. And I'm not going to use it here. But I'm going to ask you for an update on maybe let's call it the health of the Alabama coaching staff. And what do we expect from this team as far as handling that aspect of preparation for next Friday? Well, of course, we all got the word from the other program in regards to Bill O'Brien of the offensive coordinator, Doug marrone, the offensive line coach of both of those two individuals at home, isolation right now, having mild symptoms with the COVID-19 buyer with both guys are expected to anticipate to be in Arlington Texas to coach the semifinal game hopefully from the final game between Alabama and Cincinnati on New Year's Eve on the right now. We're both guys not involved at this moment here. What life may be home and Wiggins to receivers coach, who's been in the program now three years just to one holdover for the offensive coaching staff since 2019. So Wiggins has been kind of helping out with the offense of the offensive play calling health there. And in terms of the offensive line, a special teams coach drew boda has a little bit of offensive line coach and experience. So he's been tapped into help out and of course coach David hasn't died and the support staff group that are helping out with the offensive line as well. And going back to mass season, when coach Saban talked about being able to maintain your bubble, know where you are and know what you're supposed to be, will your mask on, social dis is all of these protocols coming back in terms of what's happening right now with the spike and the rise of COVID-19 cases. So stay but with Uber's last year, he had the gosp, prepare, the guys, took the necessary for college, just like you get to, and they're doing the self same things again here. Steven, when you look at a matchup with Cincinnati, is there one, you know, individual matchup within the game that you would point to and say, that's the area I'm concerned if I'm an Alabama fan. That's the here. I think the match it would be Alabama's receiver and Cincinnati's secondary. And the reason why I would say that is, Cincinnati's got the one of the best past defenses in college football, their second in the nation and passing yards allowed their first the nation and defensive pass efficiency given up on raising of 100.5 and they got two big time NFL corners where you look at Cody Bryan and Ahmad saw his career 18 pass breakups, not interceptions, two of those two of those return for touchdowns at 6 three 200 pounds long rangey as organic can break on the ball can create those turnoff versus as they give it up a touchdown in his entire career. So that's somebody that is going to be and will be a first round draft pick and Tony Brian, his compadre over here just as good 11 pass breakups this season three interceptions three four fumbles. So he's a big time and his own right and with John mezze ounce here for Alabama with a with a knee injury. Jameison Williams, we know what he is as the deep vertical go get it type of guy down the field. But this is a game where we see who else steps up. I mean, Alabama's got trace on hold and he's got experience. And got you Cory Brooks who stepped up. Of course in the iron ball match up. He's got slave Bolden. Got no different guys that position. But who really steps up to make this a moment where it can handle the soft guard? Does it handle the Cody blinds here of the world? Because that defensive secondary is a legit group under Luke pickworth in Cincinnati. Stephen M Smith joining us here from touchdown Alabama and Stephen, look at Alabama all season long. And I looked at the offensive line and the running game and relative to Nick Saban standards, it was probably the worst running game slash offensive line that he's had maybe in 15 years. But somehow they figure out a way to handle Georgia with relative ease. What is it about what they did against Georgia that you think they can replicate against Cincinnati? Because if they play the way they did against LSU or auburn or even Florida for that matter, Cincinnati has got some opportunity to make some plays. What is it about the Georgia matchup that you think they can replicate from a running game standpoint against Cincinnati? I think proven to themselves that they can do this. I mean, against Georgia, the narrative was George is going to run now. You're not going to overpower George. You're not going to be 6 6, 340 pounds Jordan Davis. You're not going to be quite walked. You're not going to beat in the Kobe dean, no man Smith, Channing ten dog. I mean, Kirby smart is just breeding giant Mathis Georgie. You're not going to beat these guys. And that was the narrative beat down. You know, the entire week, but coach Saban and Doug Malone did a phenomenal job putting the challenge to this offensive line and telling these guys, hey, nobody thinks you can beat these guys. Nobody thinks you can block these guys and hold your own and handle yourself offensively against this defense and that group went out there and did an outstanding job and one of the heroes of that game was sophomore step McLaughlin number 56 out of Georgia, but three star in the 2020 class and a now time fans are going, where has this young man been all season? Because ever since he was inserted at center for a dollar and the second half of the iron bowl, he has stable off of offensive lines. They've been able to run the football better of the past protection has been better. We saw that second half of the iron ball, and of course, the entire game against Georgia as Bryce young goes for 421 yards and four touchdowns. So we're going to have to play a big deal in this Chris Owens at right tackle his best game with the season blocking their on the outside. We know what Evan Neil does at Nepal. He is a top 5 pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, but this offensive line as a whole is taking what you did to Georgia and showing yourself, not just the world, but showing yourself that you can duplicate that type of performance in this comic football playoff on the big stage here. Stephen, what's funny about Bryce young is we used to have these conversations about the quarterback's winning Heisman and then there was a bowl game thing where you had to go through all the dinners and the banquets and the meetings and the appearances and the commercials and everything. And that was a big part of your distraction. Bryce young strikes me as a young man who like literally none of that matters to him. It does not. And he's always been a cool calm and composed guy and I go back to when he signs his national letter of intent in the 2020 class for Alabama. Coach Saban talked about it this young man is made up of the white stuff. There is so much to love about him. His leadership has poised his attention to detail his mindset. What really drives that young man and it's not the external factors he has driven by wanting to be great, wanting to be a great team may want to be a great leader, wanting to be a great person and the community. He's driven by the necessary things that make the university of Alabama the tremendous program that it is. So he's always called. He's always cool. He's always composed. Your credit that took his parents his mom and dad have done an incredible job with him. And that all goes back to the iron ball where you're down ten three with a minute, 30 seconds to go in the fourth quarter of no timeout. You're gonna drive 97 yards in 12 plays to where if you don't win this game, auburn beats you for a third straight year at Jordan hare and there was a moment where Brian shung a smiling and all of that chaos and all of that commotion. Number 9 is smiling..

"Before which there was again no matter to do the causing explain an event like that, you need to cause which transcends the domains of matter spacetime and energy. In addition in physics, when this was one of the things that was discussed at the conference, we've learned that the basic parameters of physics are so called finely tuned. They fall within very narrow tolerances against all odds and for no underlying physical reason to make life make the universal life conducive place. And so many physicists, including at that conference, we're saying that the fine tuning pointed to a fine tuner. Now, since that time, there's been the idea of the multiverse that's been proposed that there's a billion other universes out there. So many in fact that the improbable parameters that we find in our universe had to arise somewhere by chance, but the problem with the multiverse is that the so called universe generating mechanisms that have been proposed by the physicist, all themselves require prior fine tuning and just taking us right back to where we started. So, but to your other question, some of I think some of these ideas were fairly new in the 80s. The implications of The Big Bang Theory was just starting to percolate. The and the idea of intelligent design was just kind of getting off the ground. And one of the things that part of my story is that encountering these scientists raising questions about the scientific or the evolutionary explanations for the origin of life led me to investigate whether or not it was possible to develop a rigorous scientific case for intelligent design and work I ended up doing in my PhD in Cambridge, helped for me at least to answer that question and in 2009, I finally wrote a book on that called signature in the cell. And since then people have been asking me, well, you see evidence of intelligent design in life. Who do you think the designer is? And that's the reason I wrote the most recent book because I think I'm curious Norma kamali and we're going to be right back. I'm talking to Steven Meyer, the book is return of the God hypothesis, don't go away. There's too much code.

"The first hour and Stephen M Smith joining us now and I'm going to talk to Steven M Smith because he is my go to in Tuscaloosa. And Steven Emma, you told me in the off season, this would be the best Alabama defense and the offense would be explosively. And I woke up in Alabama. I was gone over the weekend. I was hunting or fishing or whatever people do in the fall. And I just found that Alabama lost a game. What's going on here? It's crazy. I mean, it's crazy, Paul. We just think about it. I mean, you go back and you, you look on paper, especially all summer long, the conversation was about this defense improve and how good it was going to be and then of course, you look at price young horses starting quarterback taking over for one Mac Jones now. Now Bryce young has made some big plays, especially in two hostile environments, but definitely give Jimbo Fisher credit. He made some comments over the summer about. He was going to beat Nick Saban's butt. Wow. Saving was still there, and Jimbo did it. Yeah, Steve, I'm glad you Stephen, I'm glad you fixed the camera. I thought for a second, the signals were being called on your camera shot by Pete golden the way that thing was slipping away. So you got me on that one pile. You got me on that. You got me on that. Okay, I want to talk. I'll get to the offense back to the offense in a second, but tell me, tell me about this Alabama defense. And I'm not, listen, I joked with you, but we have a lot of similar Friends, and they were all telling us the same thing. And I'm still perplexed because I know there's some injuries, that's okay, everybody has injuries in the middle of the season. But this just doesn't look right. Can you help explain what the issues are? Well, no one is safe has been talking about this all off season. It's number one. Where are the leaders of the team? You know, where are the guys policing on how these young players and that's what made Alabama defense so special in recent years under Nick Saban is, you've always had those guys, whether it was a jump in the island or Ruben falls or a Tim Williams just a group of guys that knew when it's time to get serious. It's time to get serious. And they were able to step up, getting Robert team to tell people how you shut out, save and talk, we got to get some work done. And they were able to kind of reel those young guys in line and get this team going defensively and that the thing where coach sabers concerned is trying to locate who are those guys on this year's team. You got a will Anderson as a sophomore linebacker who is very passionate and he wants to be one of those guys that's great, but who comes up behind him because right now, opposing offenses, they're thinking you remove 31, you take Anderson out the picture, bam a solved. They got nobody else. You remove 31, we can pretty much do whatever we want to do on this thing against this vanity fence because Anderson is the only dog that they have so that the primary thing your Paul is locating who are the players that are policing this team from the defense of perspective. Talking to Steven M Smith, Stephen, let's talk about Bryce young for a second. And he gets a lot of criticism from fans. You've heard it all. And I'm curious how you have evaluated what he has done so far. I've always actually done a really good job here at Paul. I mean, you think about it. He's gone into two hostile environments. He's went into the swamp and Gainesville and through for three touchdowns, played really well down. Their campus poise, kept his composure about himself and even know some things to not go right against a and M it can't Theo. Ah, that's not on him. He suffered drop passes, John mechie dropping passes, and that's unlike mechie, you have a jet, Jimmy, billingsley dropping passes, camera two drops a touchdown pass. You have to protection the right side of the offensive line giving up sags and even with all of that, Bryce young and the fourth quarter when you need a big throws in the aggregate, he made big throws. So I feel like you got spoiled with the deep ball of tuatara Bono. You got spoiled with the deep ball of Mac Jones. And both of those two guys are different in their own right, but this is a young man, his first year starting. And not only his first year starting Paul, his first year starting after COVID where you didn't have these loud hostile environments. You didn't have all of this adversity. You didn't have teams really punching you in punching you and punching you in the mouth. You know, Alabama kind of coasted 2020 to the college football playoff because it didn't have to deal with that friction in terms of coming from all over the other team, but the crowd in those environments. So this is the first time in the first year since 2019 for a bright sun to deal with all of that adversity. All of these different environments he has to go into and for the most part. I find he's done well. Talking to Steven M Smith, Stephen M let's let's look at the rest of the way here starting Saturday night in starkville. And again, you can't play the on paper game because a week ago, the upset shouldn't have occurred, but as you look at the season, what would concern you before we get to the SEC championship game? Is there a game on the schedule that you're looking at and going, oh, this could be a problem. I'm looking at it right now. It's not this one right here against Mississippi state, certainly are consoled down the road, but Mississippi state, I mean, two of the teams had always gives Nick Saban and Alabama, it's tough as hard as tasks. They've always been Mississippi state and of course South Carolina coached by spurrier in the early years of Nick say, but and Mike leach bad said that air raid offense and starting to take root and leach's second year Will Rogers is greatly improved at quarterback. They got some big dudes from the outside of receiver and there by my chipotle and guys like Jayden Wayne, you know, both of those two guys combined for four touchdown receptions this year. And they've got some defense too, especially a big time corner and the manual Forbes. So this matchup and Kyle belt on Kyle bell nation a third hostile environment. This is a little bit of a concern to me. Understandably so it was all the conversation about George and I know that's a long way off. I mean, how do you evaluate the rest of the way be even beyond that game this weekend and there's still Tennessee and obviously Arkansas and auburn, but Georgia looms ahead, are we looking too far ahead or because you just got through saying that this team could be vulnerable? I would say this. I don't think you should be looking too far ahead. I think this week is gonna tell I'm not about how does this Alabama team respond from a loss, right? Because we've seen in years past, whether it was the 2017 of a 2012 team or 2015, 2017, how those teams were able to pick themselves up off the mat, following a loss, but the difference was with those teams, like I said, you had those leaders that police thought the police the whole group and said, hey, let's get this thing right. This ain't dama. They're saying how we operate here. This is not how you orchestrate here. Let's get things back in order with this team, this weekend, we're gonna start to see who are those guys. We've been asking this whole time who are those guys that are going to stand up in that room and say coach Saban sit down? You don't got to say a word. We taking this thing over now. So this weekend Paul, we figure out who are those guys running this team. Who would you bet on? Who would I bet on? Jessica question. If I'm not behind will Anderson, I think the guy beared on is going to be for Daria Mathis on the defensive line. This is a 5th year senior from Louisiana came in at 2017 class. He was in the rooms with a guy those guys, the makeup fits Patrick and the maker fits politics at that time. The quinnen Williams, the Isaiah bugs. You know, he was in the room with those emotional guys. So it's time for a player like podium Mathis to speak. It's time for a player like I could Jordan battle you know to speak. Another one of those older guys got to see these seniors these juniors, these guys have been through some stop, step up here and take control of this defense. Always great to talk to Steven M Smith, Stephen M thank you. We appreciate your thoughts very, very much. We will continue here with more of your phone.

"We are back and Let's head to tuscaloosa right now. Depth chart or out even in rare form and stephen m. smith joining us now stephen m. As you look over the roster As you hear the coach talk about the first game which stands out what stands out is basically how calm nick sabin ears. I mean i. I mean usually would get more that row offing from nick. Study but A little bit more calm today as in the game week by no forest forest. Sean officially the starting quarterback he's officially. Qb one now. This comes as no surprise to anybody. We all kind of knew that he would take though. Take those steps progressions. Take the reins or that team this team by him being officially named qb one. It'd be interesting to see. Can you go out there. No play his own game. Not kid overly bogged down by the high for the pressure the moment but be able to sell the and just go out there. Half on playing football stephen. mo you're you're an optimist but you know we we. We can talk to anybody extolling the virtues of this team but if you had to pinpoint one thing they use that you look at that roster in maybe even a little bit concerned about what is it. I'll have to go just the chemistry of the offensive line just a little bit just due to after losing man dickerson to the nfl draft at center and what an outstanding young man that was. He brought an entire offense of line. Together and chris all wins. He's quite a lot of football. His career entering his sixth year in the program so much respect to him and dolly endow in thirty years junior came in twenty nineteen from maryland. Dickerson had that nastiness that physicality that often of everybody. Just kinda sort of got behind with coven iron man you know if you will so you don't have that guy you got no a brand new right tackle. Tackling kendo randolph. He's putting another football. But you know you laws. Alex offensive tackle to drop a brown at guard to the draft. So just the continuity of this offensive line just slightly scary a little bit for me. Conversely everyone talks about bryce young and we know who the stars are on this team. But if you're telling are talking to an audience that doesn't see the alabama football team like you do and let are watching the game saturday on television. Who should who should they pay attention to. Who who's going to. Wow them. I will say this. Keep your eyes on number ten. Joe joe earl true freshman out of alito texas. Don't school paul. And i tell you this chairman waddell two point. Oh this is. Jim waddell to point out. I'm telling you speed quick. A jimmy change directions fast quick twitch i mean the guy can just go he can get up and go go. Go and nick sabin loves those guys that have juice and especially after losing a quick twitch guy by jalen waddell to the nfl with the miami. Dolphins need to get somebody that i can return. Those pilots can break them back to the house as wellness plan that slot row at wide receiver so keep your eyes on number four star from alito high school in texas. That can go on the defensive side. I just hear so many names When down there and talking to friends Some of them are pretty well known but give us Give us a crash course on who to watch on that side of the ball. We're watching that south. Bobby of course. Paul you had your main guys fidelia. Mathis is on the line. You're dj dale's the defensive line just the bike bay is a guy. That's getting the star over brian. Ray due to ray getting bad from a groin surgery and boy. These kind of an underrated guy of the nine bankers. You got four. Great ones will anderson's a terror back for his sophomore year. Christopher and when he healthy he's a monster and we saw this last season. He's back as the other outside. Backer your to inside guys. You've got christian harris whose finally back play his natural spot at weakside linebacker. So he see ball get ball kind of a reuben foster type if you will and then you got toyota. Oto who runs it in the middle as the mike nine. Backup signal caller. He's done this at tennessee somebody of home. You've been very happy to have alabama he targeted him. The twenty nineteen class though. The young man chose tennessee by my is being a secondary paul.

"The middle of an extra system the deems will say the name of jesus and our heads of course and deemed will say. Stop saying that name. Or we're going to punish you when i say okay. If you don't like it we're gonna do it even more and we saying get so whatever they don't like we do more because if you say if you don't they ruled by fear and intimidation but when we trust in jesus that's when we find abrasion also one of the reasons. I wanted to you on senior to talk about your book. Diary of an american exorcist is because generally speaking even in churches. This stuff is is little spoken of. It's certainly not spoken of in the culture and there are literally millions of people deceived into silence into some kind of fear and a some kind of compromise. The enemy is afraid of us talking about this but we don't speak in our own thirty. We speak in the name of jesus with his authority and his protection. What can we do more. Why aren't more exorcists writing books like you have written. It seems to me that if you care about people you have to. It's like saying well we don't want to deal with medicine. It's too controversial. I mean we want to help people. Well i totally agree with that. And i think a larger scale when you look what's going on in this country. I mean i love america. I'm a veteran of the air force. And i think is the greatest country in the world but there's a lot of violence a discord hatred bitterness. These are signs of satan's activity. He's the one that's prompting all this martin. Luther king said hatred cannot drive hatred. Only love can drive on. Jesus said that love your enemies so this country needs the power of christ. We're going to break. We'll be back. Final segment with monsignor. Stephen rosetti book is diary of an american exorcist. Deep voice hey folks. I'm talking to the a brand new book diary of an american exorcist demons possession in the modern day battle against ancient evil monsignor. I have to ask you. I grew up in the greek orthodox church. My wife up in the roman catholic church both of us had born again. Experiences would describe yourselves as cs. Lewis mir christians at this point. And i'm a very pro catholic non-catholic i've had so many Men and women of god in the catholic tradition on this program but usually the people that i interview are different than the run of the mill. What are sometimes called cafeteria catholics. People that they were baptized. Maybe they'll get married in the church but they don't walk in this and i think sometimes that parishes and parish priests they don't require enough of people they just kind of act like well you just show up and be a good boy and we're dealing with as you put it in the title of your book ancient evil. So i'm i'm always thrilled when somebody talks about this stuff and writes a book about it but it does seem to me that if you grow up in your average parish or as i did in eastern orthodox churches. You just tend not to hear about this kind of act like that's something somebody else does. Maybe in a in a back room in the vatican. Well i think if you do talk about this realized the reality of changes your perspective all of a sudden you say you know there is a real dynamic warfare going on there between good unable and there are evil forces out there and i need to choose christ and his message because there is really a hell out there and you don't wanna go there. If you've seen what demons do to people you do not want to be in. How and so. There's a real choice that we make life is in critical. Fundamentally is under in the end. it's a choice. Choose god or choose the demons. Do you want. What do you make of it when we have. I mean we've got lots of politicians for example who say i'm catholic and it's pretty obvious from their positions on certain things that they're not catholic in any real sense it just becomes a label. We're dealing with deep spiritual realities right now scary things you just think people maybe have lost the fear of god and the idea of how centralises to our existence that that we just kind of act. Everything's basically fine and we don't have to worry about it. I mean you've seen in your life this is everything's not fine. People are dealing with the ugliest things imaginable. And most people. Don't wanna talk about it right when you see what what. Satan does the demons due to people who are possessed or oppressed. You gotta go. This is incredibly evil. And then you look on the world you say there are footprints of satan in this world and therefore of course of jesus well but but i think it's i as you say the catholic church. There are plenty of priests who who don't believe in satan and evil hell and i always say is. I'll tell you a story father. Gabriel more the famous actresses from wrong. He was talking to vatican cardinal. The cardinal says. I don't believe in all the evil stuff in father. gabriel said. Well your evidence. I have a book that you need to read. He's in which book is that. He says the bible. Jesus believed in these things in east spend a lot of his ministry casting able. There's there's no question about it. I know there are people listening right. Now they're suffering and they wanna know. Where can i go. And i think a lot of them would think that if i went to my local parish. I'm not going to get anybody who's interested in this or i'm going to get any bomb to get somebody that is There too hip to deal with this stuff Are there websites where people can go. Well first of all. Let's go to our app or website catholic exorcism or www catholic exorcism dot org. There's lots of good deliverance prayers as good videos there an lot stuff that you can do. So there's lots of stuff that individual can do to cast out evil from their lives and so there's a lot of stuff there but if if that's not enough and evils rather entrenched than you might need your local pastor breeze to to pray with you or community pray with you and if you're all try to find someone in the area will will using their as a priest or two and every diocese that is into deliverance. Pray what are some other open doors for the demonic faces sexual sin there there. There are a number of things that sometimes open door. What are some of those in your experience that can be giving right when my little cocktail forgetting possessed. And i don't suggest you drank it one. Stop practicing the faith that the faith is your protection against evil to start committing serious sins. It could be anything. But you know. We've had several alcoholics drug addicts people committing serious sexual sends whatever that creates a vulnerability and number three and add. That does start practicing with then start doing a call stuff. Like using ouija boards doing witchcraft. Even if you think it's white witchcraft. it's still witchcraft. and he's sort of magic or donation and that is basically you're giving us satan a little car and he sort of new aids divination thing. That's not from god. God is an invitation to satan and those three things together. You're in trouble. And so they're many people that they will go to palm readers or they will even get involved in horoscope stuff. It's all dangerous but it's presented in a way that it's going to help you. a priest. Access said yesterday that he had a case where this person used tear it cards quite a bit and possessed any commanded the demons that tell them their names in the demon said. I don't have a name per se but on the demon that answers people's charge cards so that he said that was his job he would you know. People use jared cards. You answered so you so you know. This is a reality for the run of the mill. This is like your doctor. You do this stuff Every day every week but again most people just don't have the beginning of aclu. Are there any movies or things like that that you would recommend that you would say that does give a realistic picture of this kind of world..

"I actually think several of us think that hitler hitters high command raw possessed they they were out to exterminate the jews which is terrible genocide. And of course. Jesus was a jew and so you know it's a way of getting back at god's people and back at jesus so jesus was as you. Mary was italian correct. Of course thank you. Thank you just because a lot of you scared a lot of people. There are no seriously this is. It's just important that people understand. This is a reality. Have you ever had any visions of the heavenly or of the of the demonic yourself while you're doing this because i know some people that have had those kinds of experiences we do have. We do have actually mystic. Who was had these kinds of experiences but those are unusual but most of us who are intense land this ministry have what we call a kind of spiritual sensitivity where he become aware of the presence of evil and it just becomes awful. You know it just it just you just feel evil thing in you sense it and you go. This is awful. Just just domestic dole made the and i believe that the worst horror movie in the world does not come close to how awful evil is and how dr and how how just simply ugly evil is well. That's the thing is like we. We can't we can barely imagine it because it is the focus of every bad evil thing. That's that's satan. I know that Even christians people who've been baptized and so on and so forth can nonetheless have oppression by demons. Maybe wouldn't we wouldn't say that they are possessed but that there's an oppression at there's something going on. I'm assuming you've seen that as well. Actually most of the people come to us are not fully possessed there what we call oppressed some demonic activity in their lives. But it doesn't rise to the of possession and and the good news is that usually you can liberate someone like that. And maybe a handful of sessions. But they'll be they'll have they'll have a marks on them. They'll be tortured their mind. There'll be there'll be demons attacking them at night. So all sorts of real manifestations but not fully possessed so if people wanna find you or get some kind of help. I'm assuming there are people listening. Who have someone in mind. Maybe themselves who were dealing with something that might be this kind of an issue. Where where could they go possessed or or even a. They should go to their local catholic priest or pastor whatever or their diagnosis the catholic diocese. We do have an app. That has lots of good deliverance prayers in called catholic exorcism. So go to the online go to an app called catholic extra schism and there'll be a bunch of good deliverance prayers. Many them for for the lady hang on a second. We're just going to go to break folks.

Monsignor You talk in the book about the hierarchy of demons again. This is an invisible world but it's just as real as the invisible world of of You know the periodic table you know most of can't see an atom or other molecule of gold but it's there and we can infer from the way things react what's going on on that level it's similar when you're dealing with the demonic or with the angelic it's there it's real and there's even a hierarchy talk about that hierarchy. Well we believe the angels are created in what we call nine choirs. the hierarchy and and and even the abel's fell became became demons. They maintained in hierarchy and of course the top hierarchy in hell lucifer satan himself. So he's he's the boss and he unfortunately he runs hell as a narcissistic of vicious cruel leader.

And is it hot or not? This is not a ship lap with its wide wood plank and signature farmhouse Look has been everywhere as an accent wall. But designers say it's official. 2021 is the year that ship lap is on its way out. Accent walls, however, are still trendy. Stephen make your accent wall one area or nook in the room and have a resemble more like artwork, such as with painted stripes or wooden wall with a herringbone pattern. That is so interesting. Melissa. Also, you know, kids love stickers and anyone who has a home office loves sticky notes. But here's a question. What about peel and stick? Wallpaper hot or not. This is hot, so wallpaper has been making a comeback over the last few years. The latest trend in wallpaper, however, may be less of a long term commitment. Self, and he's of removable wallpaper is growing in popularity. It's literally just peel and stick. Some homeowners are using it in their dining rooms like with peel and stick wallpaper. Just above the chair, rail or just above the molding and bathrooms, Florals, nature and graphic. Geometric elements are trending wallpaper styles this year. Interesting, so Melissa does the peel and stick trend. Also apply to peel and stick mirrors. Let's not go too overboard. See them. Let's just stick to wallpaper right now.

I mean they're just so gorgeous. These animals are impossible looking. It looked like a kid drew a picture of just a random beast and it came obese. Also there are so many people in this documentary around these tigers and Lions and tigers and I was wondering how many people would be comfortable being within five feet social distance six feet of a tiger. I would not know me either me neither. I am terrified of those things but I guess a lot of people would. They're selling these services as tourism. Yeah and like all these people show up they will exactly they want hold the cubs and I mean they are really cute the cubs. Yeah yeah they are again and I don't want to embarrass anyone who's gotten their picture taken with a tiger.

Shouldn't they be out in the wild? Are they being mistreated? What just occurred to me? This isn't a hypothetical question for me because the animal wrangler we hired for hit and run to bring a pit bull. He shows up with the pit bull. There's very standard practice on a movie. And then I don't know where he goes. Hey I got a baby tiger and my back of my car would you like to hold it and I didn't want to hold it in fact I didn't hold it but I felt inclined like the guy was so excited that my codependency was all. Go look at this thing. This is really important guy. And he handed it to Bradley and then he took a picture and then he sold that pitcher to Tableau and then after the movie wrapped I got a call from a federal investigator wanting to meet with me to talk about it. I'm like look man. I don't know anything about that guy. I didn't hire that guy. Movie hired them have no knowledge other than I met him in a parking lot and he ended up tiger and he wanted us to hold it. But I had no desire to hold that type law and I don't think had one either. He just gets shoved in his hands and snapped a pick. Oh no the worst. Outcome imaginable exotic. I wish it wasn't I would have held. It probably always okay. There's Manik you would have convinced me that it'd more like him if I held him a okay. So is there plastic bag ban in California? You said it got a field. I got lifted because I see them. In fact yesterday I got chicken from the grocery store and they put it in a plastic bag. The rest of the stuff was in paper bags but they put chicken in the well. Yes so in August. Two Thousand Fourteen. California became the first state to enact legislation imposing a state wide ban on single use plastic bags at large retail stores. Then in two thousand eighteen eighteen no sixteen in two thousand sixteen. That vote was backup on the ballot and it did get upheld so California. Voters upheld a state law prohibiting single use plastic grocery bags environmentalist declared victory business. Groups cried government overreach but still shopping bags made from plastic film remained commonplace in checkout lines across the state. That's because the law contains an exception pushed by lobbyists for grocers and some plastic companies that allows stores to sell thicker plastic bags for ten cents the new bags while classified as reusable closely resemble their single use predecessors and are often thrown away after one transaction still they satisfied the law because technically they can be used one hundred twenty five times without falling apart gumming since because this one was It was nice and thick.

It's really delightful to have you here today as you know we'll try to cover seven questions in just seven minutes and today's topic is how to sell different Coke Business problems are you ready to do that in seven minutes I'm ready great here we go who's your ideal clients Stephen most of my clients are a midsize to larger organizations that are struggling to stay competitive in particular their companies where their products or services have become taste there might be new entrance like new technologies that are starting to make them irrelevant and they're concerned about disruptive technologies that are changing the game in landscapes it's basically any company that struggling to survive and thrive in an age where changes happening all the time well that's a broad swath of middle market absolutely so my second question is what is the problem that you're specifically trying to solve for these middle market businesses so my main focus is growth how do you help companies grow their business consistently predictably and to me therefore innovation has to be a process and so when I'm looking at companies what I do is I help them figure out where are they focusing their energies how did they get the greatest value from their innovation efforts and how do they balance their day to day work their need for future growth so it's all of those juggling acts of take place in any organization but mid sized businesses in particular I struggle the most because they don't have the deep pockets and the unlimited resources at the larger companies have so it's how do we get the most from our investments to really good point to highlight mid market businesses is that this is their reality and it's okay that that's the reality but here you come with a solution so I'm GonNa get to that moment my third question is what do you see are the because symptoms of the problem as the owners are experiencing that or they're actually talking about what are the triggers to you that you know that they should know that that's album well I think there's a few different things there needs to be a recognition that they're having a problem with innovation and they're having a problem with growth and they're having a problem with sustaining their path so that to me is the first thing just that awareness and unfortunately what happens is the word innovation is used so much inside organizations nobody really knows what it means so what happens is people are so focused on the word without actually understanding really why do we care and at the end of the day it's about how do we grow our organs nations predictably and repeatedly so some of the symptoms I see that tells me that companies aren't focused on innovation the right way they're asking everybody for their ideas so a lot of ideas brainstorming sessions lots of ideas you don't need more ideas asking for ideas is actually a bad idea so that's one of the symptoms that I often see the other thing which I find is that companies are struggling to deal with the day to day realities of their business and balance that with the need to invest in the future and the reason why they struggle with that is because they don't understand how can we efficiently how can we efficiently invest in the future so my background I'm actually an engineer so when I look at nation most people tend to think of innovation as the same as creativity which is about generating Watson.
