Judge Temporarily Lifts Gag Order in Trump’s Civil Fraud Trial
"On CNN and MSNBC and everywhere else how about all these phony legal analysts that said Donald Trump clearly violated this judges gag order or that judges gag order and they should send them to jail remember who said that Joe Scarborough Mr. among reprobates other judge David Friedman of the intermediate appeals it's a weird system in New York their Supreme Court is the trial level then they had the first level the intermediate appeals court and then they have ultimately their appellate court which is effectively their Supreme Court why mark well somebody got drunk that's why judge David Freeman of the state's intermediate appeals court issued what's known as a stay suspending the gag order and by the way there was a judicial nominee that Joe flopped Biden up there in the Senate and Senator John Kennedy I love this guy can't get him on any of my shows so I gave up he answered a simple quote what's the difference between a stay and an injunction I really don't know what you what he asked these people the most basic questions even and they know don't the answer because Joe Biden is loading the courts with ideologues and I might add with the help of Mitt Romney and Lindsey Graham sorry Lindsey that's what you're doing the trial judge Arthur Ngaran not to be confused with the dictator Islamist of Turkey imposed a gag order on October 3 after Trump made a false comment about the judge's law crack on social media how do you know it was false then then he finds trump fifteen thousand for violating and expanded it to his lawyers after they question the clerk's prominent role in the trial what was happening is this clerk over and over again kept whispering to the judge and the judge kept whispering to the clerk like they were on a date or something but as I explained the other day a lot of these judges are absolutely stupid and have almost no real litigation experience even more than that they can't write or whatever and they rely on their clerks to
Outrageous Stalker Attacks Religious Jews for Their Traditions
"So I, minding my own business, I posted it on my social sites. Then along comes this stalker, who obviously has nothing to do with her life, hanging on the looking at. And what does she say? Well, what do you call her, Mr. British? She retweets or responds to my quote, quote, treated Now her. in 2010, as the New York Post points out, she considers herself to be a deeply religious Jew. Well, she's a liar, I doubt that. She quoted Jewish conservative commentator Mark Levin's video footage of rabbis, a quorum of Jewish adults traditionally male required for certain religious observances outside the White House. And you know what this dimwit said? Where are the women? I thought women or woman was a banned word now. I mean, when you have a Supreme Court justice, a can't define woman. But Weingarten can because she famously announced that publicly nobody cared. Nobody asked I that. think she was married to another woman, something like that. Now, I didn't ask her for opinion. I don't care for her opinion. I don't I don't care about her. In fact, I dislike her intensely given what she's doing to the young people in this country. Where are the women? So this was really an attack on Orthodox Judaism. She would never do that for the Muslims that have separate parents. No, no, no. Where are the women? I guess there I guess they're praying over in another direction, which is the way it works. sorry, I'm everybody can't be members of the American Federation of Teachers, aka the American Federation of Propagandists. About 35 % of teachers are Republicans, but I'm talking about the other 65 % that run the show. Orthodox Jews have gender separated prayers and they've had it for thousands of years. Thousands of years. So I decided to respond to her, and not in any substantive way, because I think she's got a negative IQ and it wouldn't matter anyway. She's a zealot. So I wrote, you're a contemptible moron, get off my timeline, you idiot. Isn't that pretty much what I would say on the phone, Mr. Producer? You're a contemptible moron. You're a contemptible moron, Ron Garton. Get off my timeline, you idiot. So, others joined in. The story exploded. So she blocked the comments, didn't she, Mr. Producer? She didn't want to hear anything. Brother Ben Shapiro jumped in. But I will tell

The Character Assassination of Benjamin Netanyahu
"The last year or so after netanyahu was re -elected and he put together this coalition they've been character assassinating netyahoo and this coalition the most right -wing government ever used to say that about menachem begum too by the now israel right -wing would be rhino in the united states rhino in the united states it's not right -wing what they're what they're really doing is smearing people of faith very religious people orthodox jews because the secularist jews there hate the orthodox very much like in our own country you don't have many orthodox jews orthodox practicing jews with the yarmulkes and the rest in the media mr producer i don't see any but you'll see a lot of secularists and by the way secular christians secular this but you'll see a lot of secular jews too and so they come in a world view from very different perspectives i'm just telling you the truth very different perspectives and so what's happened in israel just like in the united states sort of their marxist left their secularist left their self -hating left just as we have leftists in america who hate america well believe it or not there's leftists in israel who hate israel and they hate democracy they want an all -powerful court system which they have there more powerful than any other western country where the supreme court calls the shots on everything you don't even have to have standing they can pick and choose whatever they want to hear they issue a ruling overrule they regularly the Knesset their parliament our congress they don't have any authority to do it they just do it so netanyahu says you we know have to address this in a modest way but these justices they appoint each other do you know they we themselves effectively have elections but they don't seem to matter we out fight it we fight over the coalitions you've seen them do it and then we have three or four these justices they just decide they even make decisions about how they're going to fight wars so just like in our country with the propagandists they paint netanyahu as a dictator because netanyahu wants more democracy and it's not so sexual democracy the guy who wants to take a little bite out of the judicial oligarchy he's the fascist you see but this is typical with
A highlight from Gary Gensler Wants To Relaunch FTX | SEC vs Crypto
"All right, so a lot happening this week, and today is no different. Gary Gensler is on the Warpath, we're going to be talking about that, and also breaking into what's happening with Bitcoin and some of the markets. We'll get into all that good stuff for you guys today. My name is Paul Bearer. Welcome back to Tech Path. Before we get started, I want to take a moment and thank our sponsor. On November 14th and 15th, Human Protocol is hosting Nukeonomics 2023 in Lisbon to discuss the impact of AI and Web3 on the world and the economy of tomorrow. Make sure and use our promo code PB50 for 50 % off. Nukeonomics is planned to set to explore the future of Web3 with thought leaders around the world. Cool thing, across the program, they're going to be doing a full kickoff. On starting the event, you'll be able to get access to new speakers. They're going to discuss the impact of blockchain and creating human -centric economies and the future of crypto. They'll also have this thing called the L -Room, which is going to be a startup pitch, so make sure and check that out. And then the following day, you'll be able to go to what they call the LX Mainstage, and all of that is going to be where we'll see Web3 in music, along with AI and other influences in digital media. Some of the guest speakers include Sam Weeks from Google, Erica Wykes -Snade from Adidas, Cyrus Faisal from Swisborg, and Javier Garcia de la Torre from Binance. Make sure and check them all out. Don't forget to use our code down below. We'll leave a link. All right, so let's break into it today. Let's go over to the first tweet. This is the Kobayisi letter just in. Market cap of Bitcoin officially rises above $750 billion for the first time since April 2022. I want to zoom in on that for you guys a little bit. The entire crypto space is nearing $1 .5 trillion market cap. That's nice to see, $1 .5 trillion. First time nearly two years that we've seen this. Bitcoin prices are now 35 % over the last month, 120 % on the year. I want you to take a moment for all you guys out there that are buying in Bitcoin, have been buying maybe since the beginning of the year. You're 120 % up. How do you say that to people when you look at that? I'm just kind of curious. How do you play it? And also, what tokens are you playing right now? Make sure and leave some comments down below. Smash the like button if you guys like breakdowns like this. Let us know. These are the kind of things. So we'll kind of guide you along here. But the resilience of crypto is incredible. The statement here, can't really deny what's happening out there. You guys are in the right place at the right time. The cool thing is, is when you like this video, it's going to share it to others who will start to learn what's happening out there in crypto as a whole. A couple of posts here. I want to go to Scott Johnson. And it looks like we've got some confirmation. One with a hard timeline, so almost certainly decided along with other open apps, the most likely outcome, US SEC said open talks with Grayscale on the spot Bitcoin ETF push is underway. So this came in further on him and he said, my guess is Grayscale is one of the two positions they received assurances that they will receive a new order, X number of days alongside the open apps. And then they have not received assurances, maybe demanding a new order. Kind of curious which one you think would be the case. Will Grayscale be aligned with the rest because with this alignment of discussions happening, you get back into the scenario of, yes, ETF is going to start positioning and maybe that's the opportunity. Now, the real question is how does Bitcoin respond once an ETF does come through? Pentoshi kind of hits on a couple of points here. A lot of people argue that Bitcoin ETF is going to be sell the news. Yes, some pricing is going on, but we have no idea what the demand will be and there will be some to start. Sure, illiquid supply is at an all -time high. That's one thing. A lot of Bitcoin is now in diamond handlers. Yes, we know that. And then don't pretend you know what's going to happen. I agree. I don't think anybody really knows for sure. You can assume, I think with some reason, that there's going to be some demand movement. But the biggest point, I think, is a little bit of a ephemeral approach to it. And what I mean by that is that when BlackRock comes into the space, if BlackRock is the one that, say, leads the way out, maybe there will be another winner here. Could be ARK, could be Fidelity. Whoever wins that marketing war, I think that's the point in which traditional investors will start to question their resolve around crypto. And when that happens, there will be a tipping point and I think that's the point in which a lot of this is going to start to peak. Now, maybe the timing is going to be perfect too because you've got, obviously, next year we've got the halving occurring. Hopefully we're out of what could be a recession. Hopefully we're out of these conflicts and other things are starting to settle. We'll talk about that in a second. Here's Will Quamente. He kind of jumps in on this. It's pretty obvious that if BlackRock is filing an ETH ETF, then the Bitcoin ETF must be a dumb deal. I don't know if it's a done deal, but this is interesting that they bring this up front. Now, granted, they may have enough indicators there that this is going to happen and they don't want to be left behind in the sense of a strategy around an ETH ETF. I just had James Saferd on. He and I had kind of been going back and forth. First time I had James on, he mentioned to us and we asked him straight blank, what about an ETH ETF? He wasn't really a fan of that, but he's changed his position. So I think that he, along with other Wall Streeters out there, are in a position now that ETH is going to make it through as an ETF. Here's John Deaton. Although I believe a spot ETF, Bitcoin ETF, should have been approved a long time ago, I believe the timing of a spot ETF approval is going to help create a perfect storm for Bitcoin. Whether you look at, you know, Wall Street getting what they want or you know what's happening overall, what he talks about here is we all know no matter what happens in the not too distant future, second and third quarter, rate cuts going to happen combined with rate cuts. This is my point is that you're going to get into some scenarios for 2024 where the cycle starts to feed upon itself. Rate cuts, the market looking at a much more structured capital alignment with an asset class that has now maybe come of age, along with all the technical components of what's happening with Bitcoin, and then what I think will be an absolute barnstorm of what's going to happen in Web3. That's going to include all the traditional tokens that we talk about here all the time, including, you know, ETH, AVAC, SOL, and many others in the Web3 ecosystem. So a lot definitely kind of lining up here for good news. SEC Chair Gensler says rebooted FTX is maybe a possibility if it's done within the law. All right. So this I would tread on very, very lightly in the sense that I think the brand damage has been done. I just cannot imagine, it would take maybe years to get way past where we are today. Any of the people that know about crypto today are going to most likely be feeding into the crypto investors of the future, and what I mean by the future, the next two to three years. FTX is still going to be a memory that's not one that's easy forgotten. And I think because of that, just the brand ethos that FTX pretty much imposed itself on the industry, I don't think is going to be forgotten. So I think it's going to be a scenario. They will not be overcoming it. And the thing that, you know, Gensler might be trying to do here is maybe just set it up for failure so he can do what I told you at some moment. I don't know. But I would not. Why? Go that route. Why would you bring that sore back up into the industry when there's so many great projects out there and great exchanges and places where you can do things, including all these new entities? I just don't know. I'm not sure. Let's listen to a clip right here. This is Brad Garment House. He's talking about FTX. Listen in. I've spoken with a lot of Democratic lawmakers, crypto skeptics about this, and they cite fraud often, that a lot of people are defrauded through crypto scams. How much more work needs to be done to push back against that kind of narrative? The fraud FTX wasn't a crypto fraud. I mean, yes, it was a fraud. Maybe if Gary Gensler and the SEC weren't so focused on going after Ripple and meeting openly with Sam Bankman -Fried, maybe we could have actually avoided some of that, right? Marty bracing myself for when I go check Twitter after this to see everything the XRP army had to say about this conversation. All right. So you can kind of see maybe with Brad Garment House, obviously I'm trying to take this to the Supreme Court, will maybe adjust his opinion of how they negotiate with the SEC. And maybe that's what he's talking about there. It would be interesting if that actually occurred. Maybe there is something that could be done and salvaged between that relationship. I don't know. I want to go over to another clip here. This gets into Garment House talking about Coinbase and what their current status is. Listen in. I followed the Coinbase case a little more closely. And so maybe I can comment there a little bit more. You know, the SEC is not trending well there. And again, if at some point you would think if you keep getting losses, you would say, okay, wait a minute, let's step back, let's reevaluate. Or even better, let's be part of championing a legislative solution. Well, you say you're hopeful that something happens legislatively, but ultimately the way things are going right now, do you think more clarity is likely to come from Congress or is it just going to continue to come from the courts and the judicial branch? I think that's a question for Chair Gensler.
SBF TRIAL Podcast 11/7: What's Next for Sam Bankman-Fried's Legal Case
"Welcome to the SBF trial, a Coindesk podcast network newsletter bringing you daily insights from inside the courtroom where Sam Bankman -Fried will try to stay out of prison. Follow the Coindesk podcast network to get the audio each morning with content from the Coindesk regulation team and voiced by Wondercraft AI. The story of United States v. Sam Bankman -Fried isn't quite over yet. Now that he's been found guilty on seven different charges, a few things are going to happen. One is, of course, the U .S. probation and pretrial services system will get to work on drafting a memo for a recommended sentence. The Department of Justice and the defense team will likely have views on that recommendation. Judge Lewis Kaplan has scheduled a tentative hearing on March 28 to discuss the proposed sentence, with deadlines for the two parties to respond to the memo ahead of that date. There's also Bankman -Fried's second trial, currently scheduled for March 11. The judge set a February 1 deadline for the DOJ to update him on whether or not it intends to proceed with this second trial, which is also dependent on the U .S. winning permission from the Bahamas government. As a reminder, Bankman -Fried faces additional charges of fraud on FTX customers tied to derivatives, though it's worth noting that last week's conviction did include a count of conspiracy to commit commodities fraud, securities fraud against FTX investors, conspiracy to commit bank fraud, conspiracy to operate an unlicensed money transmitter business, and conspiracy to violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. These charges were not included in Bankman -Fried's original indictment, meaning they did not appear in the DOJ's request to the Bahamas for his extradition. The Bahamas Supreme Court ordered that the government cannot retroactively grant permission for a trial on these charges until after a hearing has been completed. I haven't yet seen any confirmation that one has been scheduled. There's also post -trial motions. Defense Attorney Mark Cohen and his team may file for a new trial or for the judge to acquit despite the jury verdict. These are pro forma, but Cohen suggested he will file those and has a November 20th deadline to do so. The DOJ must respond by December 18th.
Georgia Forced to Redraw Legislative and Congressional Maps
"Georgia has just been told to redraw their maps, both their legislative maps on the state level and their congressional maps. It's going to be interesting to see how that goes. Um, I had a conversation with someone who was near the governor's office of in Georgia camp, who said, we weren't worried about it until the legislature figures it out. I said, I get that. Um, but you've got North Carolina. The reason I'm setting this up, it's a long setup, but you're bearing with me. Number one, folks, if you don't know, Chip was with a guy named, uh, Lynn Westman. Lynn Westman is a mentor of mine. He's a dear friend, just like he is to chip, uh, served in Congress. I'll tell people this all the time. If Lynn had not went to Congress, Lynn Westman would still be the speaker of the house in Georgia, if not governor. Um, I just believe he would have been and stayed there, but he, but he has an old, you know, contractor, a good old boy mentality. That's just the way he is. But he got in, y 'all got into redistricting heavy, uh, from really his time before you even more started working with him in the early two thousands, all the way to when you were working with him in 2009, 2010, working on the previous maps. This matters. And I'm afraid Republicans chip, and I love to get your input here. I'm afraid Republicans got complacent after the last round and we didn't take this round of redistricting as seriously across the country as say we did back in 2010. Yeah. I mean, it's a word of start, right? I mean, there's so much to unpack there. I mean, it, uh, um, I, I will say this, that, you know, uh, um, section five of the voting rights act, which the Supreme court rightly, you know, kicked out as unconstitutional a lot later than they should have candidly. I mean, a lot of people don't know, but what section five mandated was that if you were under, if you were a section five state or jurisdiction, which Georgia was many of the States in the South were, you had to submit your maps to the justice department for pre -clearance. It was blatantly unconstitutional because, uh, for a variety of reasons that I'm back to what you said about, I'm not a constitutional scholar, but what I do understand is, you know, you, you can't have one set of laws for one people in another state. You can't have another set of laws for another people. So the formula that decided pre -clearance, uh, up until like what, five years ago, maybe six years ago, you know, maybe, you know, was, uh, was the 1968, 1972 presidential election. I mean, are you kidding me? So, you know, now there's this whole cottage industry that the Democrats have. That's much more of a, it's much bigger of a cottage industry that, you know, they raised tens of millions of dollars, if not hundreds of millions of dollars to go after only States that have Republican drawn maps. It's for blame. It's not so they can equal the playing field for minorities to compete. Do not kid yourselves. The reason behind this is to maximize Democrat drawn gist districts. That is political. That is not, that is not leveling the playing field for a particular minority. Um, it's only going after Republican State drawn maps and look, what these judges have done is they move the goalposts every time they make a decision. And I'll say this, and I know I'm going to get criticized for saying it, but federal judges, especially Trump appointed federal judges, you know, in some ways, you know, they're on the federal bench now, and that's a lifetime appointment. Right. You know, they are petrified at being at, at making a ruling at which they could be labeled by the other side as racist.
A highlight from Persecuted Apostles, Prevailing Gospel
"When I was a child there was a time in which trick birthday candles were all the rage. It was always somewhat interesting to watch someone's face as they tried and tried and tried again to blow out those candles but to no avail. Some of us tried with all of our might and no matter how hard we tried the light that we had thought that we had snuffed out came back. It's been like that throughout as history different leaders have tried to snuff out God's Word. Whether it's Antiochus or Diocletian, whether it's philosophers or false religious systems or communist regimes, many have tried throughout history either to chain or to cut off the Word of God. Some have tried to prohibit transmissions, others have tried to cut off translations, but they all have one thing in common. They have all ultimately failed and that long list of failure you might say in the New Testament Church begins right here in Acts chapter 4. As we make our way into the text first I want to briefly create some context. We have been studying Acts chapter 3. We just finished that. We're making our way into Acts chapter 4 but I want to remind you what happened in Acts 3. There was a man who had been crippled for over 40 years. He was lame from his mother's womb and he was miraculously healed. You'll remember that a crowd ensued as a result of marveling at the miracle and that a massed audience provided an occasion for Peter's evangelistic preaching. Those who played a part, some role or another, when you look at Peter's speech, Peter's preaching, some who had some role or another in Jesus's crucifixion were actually given an opportunity to have that sin and all of their other sins blotted out, wiped away. They could have left in that time. If they would have heard the gospel and repented they could have left being like those who would come to sing in later generations that hymn, my sins are blotted out I know. And there would be many that day that would respond to the gospel by God's grace but there would also be those who would add to their guilt. And I'm not simply referring to those who would hear Peter's message and then in an unwise and undiscerning way not respond to it with faith by God's grace. I'm talking about persons that we know. Familiar villains will reemerge on the scene in our study of Acts chapter four and they are going to try to snuff out what was to them a familiar name. We'll see all of that and more as we get into our text today. We begin in Acts chapter 4 verse 1 where we read, Now as they spoke to the people, the priests, the captain of the temple, and the Sadducees came upon them. So in the beginning of verse 1 of chapter 4 you see it says now as they spoke to the people. Doubtless this refers to Peter and John. You're going to see that the lame man was with them. He was with them on this day and he's actually going to be with them when they appear before the Sanhedrin, before the Jewish Supreme Court if you will the next day. But right here you get the idea that Peter and John at least primarily are the ones who are doing the preaching and teaching because look at verse 2 they were teaching the people and they were also preaching in Jesus the resurrection from the dead. Now before we get to verse 2 just a little note here a couple of notes about these parties that were involved in coming upon Peter and John. If you look at verse 1 we have three groups mentioned. The first one is the priests. The priests. They were the ones who essentially functioned in different roles at the temple. They had different responsibilities in the service at the temple. They might burn incense, offer sacrifices, teach the people, do whatever tasks pertained to the sanctuary. Now there were in 1st And now interestingly it looks as though they would serve in kind of rotations. So it could have worked out in one of two ways people usually say. It could have been that they served for two weeks during the course of a year. They would go to the temple and officiate at the temple because remember these were priests and Levites and remember they were scattered throughout the land of Israel to teach the people the law and so on. But two weeks out of the year they would come to the temple and they would serve at the temple. You also have the possibility that they would go to serve at the temple once every two years and they'd stay there for a month. So that's the first group here. The priests. They officiated in the temple. They offered sacrifices, burned incense, taught the law. Then you have the second group or a second person. The captain of the temple. Now he was essentially the chief of security and if you look through commentaries you find over and over again this role was a highly regarded one. It is repeatedly said that his position was second to the high priest. That's how prominent this role was. He served over the temple guard. He was kind of over the Levitical police force if you will. So he's there. And then you have the last group, a group that many of you doubtless are familiar with, the Sadducees. They were a religious group in Israel. Power brokers if you will. They had a lot of political clout and they also had a lot of religious clout within the nation of Israel but I think they are best known for what they didn't believe. Remember the Sadducees are those who did not believe in a resurrection. They are not they are those who do not believe in angels or demons. They did not believe in an afterlife. They only believed in the first five books of Moses it is often said as being divinely inspired. They had a lot of sad beliefs and like my grandpa used to joke that is why they are sad you see. They had a lot of sad erroneous beliefs. They were also political opportunists. They were those who were in positions of power. It appears that they came to their power after the period of the Maccabees, that intertestamental period. They're like a group of priestly families that get connected with the power brokers in the land and they try to solidify their power. That's why they tried to keep things nice and calm with Rome because they had a nice set up for them and they didn't want anybody rocking the boat. They're also have said to have been a pretty cruel group. Josephus had noted and I saw this in the pulpit commentary that the Sadducees were more severe and cruel in their administration of justice than any other Jews. They went on to note their tenant of no life to come made them look to severe punishments in this life and doubtless they would have looked for severe punishments right away for Peter and John but you're going to see in God's Providence God set it up in such a way in which they weren't going to be able to do what they wanted to do. The Lord will and will see that in future studying. So that brings us to verse 2. They make haste these three groups the priests the captain of the temple in the Sadducees and the reasons for their haste are found in verse 2 where we read being greatly disturbed in other words they were greatly annoyed in the Greek here this verb annoyed or irritated or angered and it's compounded by the preposition dia so they were very upset very disturbed and we're told that they were disturbed because they Peter and John taught the people and preached in Jesus the resurrection from the dead so this is why they were angry reason number one Peter and John are teaching and they're like who are these guys well we didn't give them the green light to teach we are in control we are the Sadducees they did not go through the rabbinical teaching system who was their rabbi we don't know who these people are so they were bothered that these people were teaching and they didn't have the the right to it as it were the religious leadership of that day they hated anything that infringed upon their authority that's one of the reasons why they hated Jesus he infringed upon their authority and they thought he needed to be stopped well Peter and John were doing so and they thought they needed to be stopped as well second reason why they were upset is basically I think this was multifaceted because Peter and John were preaching in Jesus the resurrection from the dead I think there's a lot of aspects to why this made them upset first they were a part of the Sanhedrin many note a primary part of the Sanhedrin the majority part of the Jewish religious ruling council that wrongly sentenced Jesus to death and handed him over to Pilate so a lot of these Sadducees were the very people who looked at the Son of God the Messiah and said he deserves to die and now Peter and John are preaching no no no Jesus has risen from the dead so they were upset doubtless they were also upset because they didn't believe in a resurrection and now they're teaching people that Jesus has rose from the dead and that's going to undercut their erroneous message and if you undercut their erroneous message you're going to undercut their clout and they didn't want their clout to be undercut being right wasn't the priority as much as having power and wealth and influence being right was incidental if they were right along the way that was great but protecting their power was the priority think about this you see this even in Matthew 28 remember after the soldiers come back and they are telling to the religious leadership what happened and they're saying that the tomb is empty and so on what does the religious leadership tell them they create a lie for them Matthew 28 verse 12 they give them money they give them a large sum of money Matthew 28 verse 12 they tell them the lie Matthew 28 verse 13 and they assured them that if this ever got to Pilate that they would cover for them suffice it to say the Sadducees in this case did not have righteous indignation one other possibility as well and maybe they're all together these aren't mutually exclusive is that they thought if word got around to the Romans that a Messiah was being preached who rose from the dead the Romans could esteem this as being somewhat revolutionary and what would be the problem with that it could ruin the nice gig that the Sadducees had so maybe to one degree or another all of these things are what bothered them in Peter and John preaching in Christ the resurrection but you'll find in verse three their indignation didn't just stay mental they weren't just upset on the inside it manifested itself physically look at verse three and they laid hands on them please know this wasn't a good kind of laying on of hands you know they weren't praying for them they weren't like ordaining them to ministry they weren't doing any kind of a good laying on of hands or so on this was a laying on of hands that was a seizing interestingly the word that's used here in the Greek epi ballo that word ballo means to cast to throw epi you think typically of being a preposition that means upon it's like they threw their hands upon them they seized them so that's the picture that I think is meant to be painted here they come down they laid hands on them now I just want to tell you something that I would do if I was a filmmaker and if I were recreating this scene in the kind of movie where we're trying to depict acts chapter four what I would do is that the moment that acts for three happens the beginning of it and they laid hands on them at that moment I would all of a sudden insert a flashback to Jesus's teaching on the Mount of Olives where he said but before all of these things they will lay hands on you and persecute you delivering you up to synagogues and prisons you will be brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake here is the initial fulfillment of those very words and it would keep manifesting itself but I want to remind you here that this was a prophecy that Jesus made this was the initial fulfillment of it and his word always comes to pass you can believe it you can believe the words of scripture you could believe every word that Jesus said he has a perfect streak that will never be broken some of you might remember my favorite pitcher when I was younger oral her shizer he pitched for the Los Angeles Dodgers believe he's a professing Christian brother in Christ and in 1998 he had an amazing year the Dodgers go on to win the World Series I believe he won the Cy Young Award that year and that year he pitched what I believe still is the record for number of innings pitched without giving up a run 59 innings pitched without a run being given up and if you were a baseball fan if you were oral her shizer fan then you were watching those games saying it's the street going to continue is it going to continue and when it did you were excited but eventually you were disappointed because that streak like other streaks in professional sports don't go on forever but with Jesus you will never be disappointed his perfect streak of having his words fulfilled will always stay it will never be broken and this is a witness to that right here in Acts chapter 4 verse 3 so they seized them and they put them in custody until the next day so the Sanhedrin had a rule they had a law that they essentially subscribe to that they would not try people at night before dawn didn't stop them when they wanted to kill Jesus that rule so they were okay with breaking their own rules probably they based this rule on Jeremiah 21 12 and ministered justice every morning and it didn't stop them from persecuting Jesus and having their kangaroo courts happen during the night but in this case they were going to wait they needed some sleep perhaps and they were going to wait until the next day Peter and John are put in custody until then and then we're told to get a it was late to use language from Matthew 14 15 notice a little bit of context here this event began at around 3 p .m. because remember that Peter and John were going up to the temple around the ninth hour that was 3 p .m. now that it's late now that it's evening you know that it's at least 6 p .m.
The Mike Johnson Speaker Strategy
"We very well might have a speaker. We might have a speaker. Mike Johnson is the speaker designate. We're going to have a vote hopefully momentarily here, but don't pop the champagne yet. Mike Johnson is a great man. He's been on the program. He's solid. He's very smart. He's argued in front of the Louisiana Supreme Court. He is a true patriot, a godly man, and this process, this process, we went through basically everybody. Thank goodness Emmer did not get it. It was a big win for the grassroots. Good job, everybody. Emmer just folded like a cheap suit. Go back to Minnesota to do deals with Democrats. There were other people that we wanted. I mean, Jim Jordan would have been terrific. Mike Johnson is similar of the similar kind of vein and form as Jim Jordan. He's tough. He's smart, and let me prove it to you. This morning, some anti -social person that works for, what is this, the New York magazine? Jonathan Chait says, all right everybody, you have to hate him. House Speaker nominee Mike Johnson, New Yorker. I thought it was New York. No, I think it was, I don't think it's New Yorker. I was right, not New Yorker. House Speaker nominee Mike Johnson was the mastermind of the January 6 plot. Oh, they're already telling us that we must hate him. He is the architect of January 6. By the way, he was one of the most and continues to be one of the most articulate advocates for election integrity. Okay, so it's the New York magazine. They have a blog called The Intelligencer. It's many of the New York publications do we need exactly. Johnson used to be a relatively obscure right wing backbencher, threw himself behind Trump's election subversion crusade. At first, Johnson endorsed both Trump's old mail fraud claims and his newer voting machine theories. In a friendly radio interview two weeks before the election, he said, they're supposed to say this as a way to try to make you hate him. A lot of us know intuitively that there are a lot of amiss about this election day. The fact that all these states with Democrat leaders change the rules, true, in the fourth quarter of the game, true, and the allegations of these voting machines, some being rigged, and a lot of merit in the software by certain voting companies. And when the president says the election was rigged, that's what he's talking about. The fix was in.
A highlight from Three Lessons from the Book of Exodus: Charlie's Speech to Colorado Christian Academy
"I want to thank Charlie. He's an incredible guy. His spirit, his love of this country. He's done an amazing job building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created. Turning Point USA. We will not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries, destroyed lives, and we are going to fight for freedom on campuses across the country. That's why we are here. Brought to you by the loan experts I trust, Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific Mortgage at andrewandtodd .com. Thank you, everybody. Thank you. Okay, please take a seat. I'm going to close this. Okay, so I want to get to question and answer because I think that's actually the most fun, and I have a feeling there's a lot of questions. There's a lot I could talk about. First, I just want to say there's something really exciting happening in the country where I'm getting invited to speak at schools like this all across the country that didn't exist a decade ago, where parents are starting to rise up and start new communities and start new schools. This is exactly what is necessary in the country right now. Because there if is a woke private school and a failed public school, just start a new school. And we are really good at starting new things. We're really bad at preserving our things from getting captured and infiltrated. That's a separate issue. They're experts at infiltration, experts at destabilization. But I just want to compliment and commend the whole team here. Think really big because the demand is greater than you could ever imagine. I Colorado. love I hate what these people have done to it. And you have to think multigenerationally. You really do. And that's why this effort is so incredibly important. And you have no idea the child that you might be helping educate at Colorado Christian, the impact that they might make. You have no idea if they might be a changemaker, an entrepreneur, a senator, a congressman, something beyond your wildest imagination. Or the most important thing, a loyal husband and wife and someone who loves the Lord, honestly, even beyond a massive changemaker. So I'm going to actually talk about my favorite book of the Bible. I don't think you'll really guess it. It's funny. I love the word and I love what it does to you through different walks of life. And because I'm a glutton for punishment, I've decided to go through the first five books of the Bible in original Hebrew and go verse by verse. If you want a really big challenge, do that. Just finished Leviticus. That's no fun at all. It's unbelievably awesome as a Christian to read Leviticus for many different reasons. And it's amazing. But my favorite book of the Bible is the book of Exodus. And it's not quoted enough or understood enough. And I really think that there's more parallels for what we're living through right now in the book of Exodus than almost any other part of the word. I And so was studying and studying Exodus and so much pops out. So I'm going to go three lessons that I think we as believers, we as patriots, can derive from the book of Exodus. And some you say, OK, I've heard that one before. But I guarantee you I'm going to isolate a verse that you've probably never heard any pastor ever isolate. It's just kind of what I call a flyover verse. You know what I'm talking about? Where you just kind of skim. You're like, OK, let's go. You know, it's like the verse before John 3 16, John 3 15 and John 3 17. Does anyone know those? Probably not. Well, maybe in this room. But very few people do, right? It's a flyover verse. So it's first important to remember Exodus in Greek means the way out. Ex hodos, right? And the actual labeling of the verse is Israelites oppressed or the captivity in Egypt. The whole Old Testament, the first five books of the Bible of the word of God is centered around Egypt. Egypt is actually the villain of the Torah. Egypt is tyranny. Egypt is authoritarianism. Egypt is paganism. Egypt is godlessness. Egypt is one size fits all rule. Said differently, Egypt is the Biden administration. And so now if I offended you, you're in the wrong dinner. I'm sorry. Like so and the whole Bible is written even in Genesis. It's written as a refutation of Egypt. And if you know anything, devout Jews will tell you that the Exodus is the most important thing. Creation and Exodus are the two most important parts of Jewish life, right? Whether it be the Passover Seder, whether it be the Shema, whatever it is, Egypt is the whole ballgame, right? And like remember how we were delivered from Egypt and I'll dive into that. So there's this amazing thing and you remember the end of Genesis, right? Joseph does this remarkable stuff. He doesn't do it. God doesn't through Joseph and he's just a messenger. And he basically saves Egypt from famine and from starvation and saves the whole civilization, right? And the first chapter of Exodus sets up the whole, it's what I call the turning point chapter and we're living through this right now in America. And this is why Christian education is so important and why supporting this academy is so important. And it's a verse that you would just kind of read over and like, okay, yeah, whatever. Then rose a king over Egypt who did not know Joseph. Okay, Charlie, what's the big deal? That's exactly what's happening on university campuses across the country. Then rose a generation that did not know George Washington. Then rose a generation who did not know Abraham Lincoln. You get tyranny when you forget the sacrifices that were made before you. You get tyranny when you don't know your history. Right there, the entire book of Exodus gets set up. So here's Joseph that through God saves them from famine, saves them from starvation. The Egyptians should have statues made to Joseph. They should have songs made to Joseph. But all it took was one king who didn't have the memory of what Joseph did before. And then what happens? That king rises and everything changes. He says, who are these Israelites? They multiply like insects. Let's get rid of these guys. If you fail to pass down your values from one generation to the other, you can quickly all of a sudden get authoritarianism, tyranny, murder, genocide very, very quickly. It can happen in one generation. And I don't think we as Christians isolate this teaching enough because we act as if it happens automatically sometimes. Like, oh, I can send my kid to government school and they'll still share my values. You know, we go to church once a quarter and, you know, we listen to Christian music, you know, every so often and, you know, like through osmosis. And even in the cocktail reception, people come up to me and they say, Charlie, how am I supposed to deal with kids that don't share my values? How did this happen? And my question is always the same. You know, what college did they go to? Always. And in this case, it was Northwestern in Michigan, right? So nice selections. But again, I'm not picking on you guys. It's a very sweet couple. But it was just stood out, right? And you're here tonight because you want your children to share your values, that you want your children to live in liberty. And so that verse right there should be our mission statement. We never want to have a king or a sovereign, the people, ever not know the sacrifices that were made before. When I visit college campuses, and I visit college campuses so you don't have to, I am told, Charlie, the founders were a bunch of racist old dead white guys. We're a colonistic, colonialistic, misogynistic, homophobic, terrible country. That's a generation that did not know Joseph. So then all of a sudden they have a willingness and openness for tyranny, for totalitarianism, authoritarianism, because that is actually how we are naturally programmed. I actually didn't plan to talk about this, but it's just a little bit of a side note. The human being wants to be taken care of far more than they want to be free. Freedom is a value. You naturally do not want to be free. And if you disagree, you are not paying attention during COVID. People that were otherwise some of the most rational people that I knew lost their bloody mind masks wearing in a car alone because they wanted to be told what to do. Freedom requires risk. You cannot be free without chance. You can't have both. If you want to have everything taken care of, go commit a federal crime, or just become a conservative, because inevitably you'll end up in federal prison, and then you'll go to jail. There's no freedom, but there is assuredness at prison. Three meals a day, bunk you don't have to pay for, you don't have to work for what you get. Prison is the opposite of freedom. And so here's the Israelites that are living in total totalitarianism because a king came who did not know what the previous generation did. The next verse, Exodus 1 17, one of my favorite verses in the whole Bible, and I screamed this at pastors, and I yelled it at pastors, and I was unsuccessful. And I'll tell you why. But the midwives to the Hebrews, as in the original Hebrew it says this, feared God. Now the verse before it, Exodus 1 16, the king who forgot Joseph was like, hey, murder all the firstborn, murder them all, kill the babies. Now we would know nothing about killing babies in our civilization. We're way more advanced than that, obviously. We would never do such a thing ever, obviously. Look how advanced we are. We have Twitter and air conditioning, right? So this is, I always laugh when people say the Bible is such a medieval text, we've advanced so far. Yeah, right. No, we just do the evil things quicker and better and quieter and more secretly. So of course, we're more advanced than that. But the king or the pharaoh says, kill the firstborn. And I love this. The midwives disobeyed Pharaoh because they feared God. And it goes on to say that the Hebrew is not a great translation. God dealt well with them or God found favor in them. God loves when you defy tyranny for liberty. That is the heart of God. God wants you to reject tyranny if it engages in somebody's life or interferes with their liberty. A regular woke skinny jean -wearing pastor will tell you, no, no, no, Romans 13, man, submit to the rulers and authority because God put them there for your good. And then I say, OK, rocket scientist, constitutional scholar, man, your TED Talk rock concert, a thing you call a church with organized parking and a coffee bar. Let ask me you, since you're super smart, who are the leaders in America exactly? In Romans 13, God put the leaders in authority because they're there for your good. Who are the leaders? And they say the mayors, the congressmen, the senators. No, no, the people are the authority. So when the people's rights are infringed, the mayors and the state senators and Governor Polis should be submitting to us. We don't submit to them. So I love this verse. And God dealt well with the midwives. Let me ask you, is the American church, are we as Christians fighting tyranny the way the midwives fought tyranny in Egypt? I don't think we're doing a good job. I don't. I think you guys are. I mean, there's an exception. But the large part of the American church, American Christianity is submit to the government authority, submit to the cultural tyranny, submit to the pressure of the day. Submit to what other people are saying. That is not what God wants. And by the way, it's not just in Exodus. In Daniel, Daniel disobeyed the king and still prayed his prayers, ended up in the lion's den, right? In Acts, it says we obey God, not man, time and time again. Psalm 97 10 is my favorite, one of my favorite verses of the Bible. I have a lot of favorite verses. If you love God, you must hate evil. I don't think that we as Christians are doing a good job fulfilling that verse. I hear all the time, but Charlie, we must be nice. And I say, great. Right by the other point. Where in the 66 books of the Bible does the word nice appear in Aramaic or Greek or Hebrew? Waiting. Ready, set, go. And they say, well, we have to be loving. I said, yeah, but what does loving mean? Tell me in the original Greek. You know, is it agape, storge, phileo? You know, they say, well, oh my goodness. We kind of had this discourse earlier. But we're not called to be nice. We're called to tell the truth. And honestly, we've done a pretty crummy job of telling the truth the last 30 years here in America. We have allowed the worst of all evil, institutionalize itself, go after our children. And I finally am starting to see a response. This school is evidence of a response to all this institutionalized evil. And the midwives feared God and God dealt well with them. If we want God to deal well with us, maybe we should start fighting for liberty against tyranny. So God delivers his chosen people out of Egypt. And every time you hear Egypt, just think tyranny. Every time, right? And so he delivers them out of Egypt, one of my favorite parts. They're in the desert, you know, God, 10 miracles, the sea is parted. And this is why I always laugh when atheists say, all I need to do is see a miracle and I'll believe in God. Like, no, you don't. Like next Tuesday, you'll forget about God, right? Because you have a heart problem. You are your own God, right? That's not true. The Hebrews saw God move in an amazing way. They get into the desert. Within days, they're complaining. That's all the Jews do the entire Old Testament. They complain and they complain and they complain. It's why God had to let them all die off and, you know, have Joshua generation going. He's like, these people are not ready for Israel. They complained way too much. We want melons, we want meat, we want all the cucumbers. Literally, translation. So they get into the desert and they say, we want to go back to Egypt, because at least we had meat. At least we had melons, at least we had leeks, at least we had cucumbers. They wanted slavery over freedom because they ate better. And God's like, what am I going to do with these people? And I honestly think that's, I agree with Dennis Prager on this. It's one of the reasons why God chose the Jews. If you could do it with this group of people, you could do it with any group of people, right? If you could get this group of misfits to be successful in finance and business and education, there's something to this book, right? There's something there that we can all learn from. Anyway, so God then, God is a God of order. We as Christians don't do a good enough job. It drives me nuts when Christians only say God is love. Yeah, but he's also other things, okay? He's like judging God. Oh, you can't say that. Well, it's true. Jesus will judge the sinners at the end of the age. One of the main reasons why the church has gone woke is you'll never hear the three -letter word that every person needs to hear, sin. How do you know what redemption is if you don't know what sin is? Unknown concept. We just tell people, oh, you're perfect the way you are. Actually, you're not. Like you're pretty crummy in Jesus, like really bad, like really bad. All of us do, all the time. And we're going to keep sinning and we keep on eating Jesus. And so God established order for us. Of course, the Decalogue being the Ten Commandments or the Ten Statements. And of course, it begins, I am the Lord your God who delivered you from Egypt. He reminds them before he gives him the Decalogue. Moses, the Decalogue. Just in case you forgot, I delivered you from tyranny. God's heart is not for people to live in tyranny. That's when it drives me nuts when people say, Charlie, you're too political as a Christian. Look, God calls us to fight authoritarianism all the time. So then, my favorite one of the commandments that comes tonight, that pertains to tonight, is the one that every one of you are vigilant and why you're here tonight. Honor your mother and father so that you may live long in the land of which God is giving you. And I'm going to spend the remainder of my remarks on this and then he'll do some questions. Everything that the culture is doing when it comes to anybody under 18 is about trying to is this commandment the most proven commandment to have a free society. If you were to say, Charlie, out of all the Ten Commandments, what is the one that if you stop doing, you get tyranny the fastest? You actually more so than murder, more so than stealing, more so than not even having any gods before God. If you do not honor your mother and father, and I'll tell you exactly what that means, you 100 % will lose a free society. You cannot have a group of young people that dishonor or curse, which is the opposite of honor, their parents, and also live in liberty. It has never happened in the history of the species. Now, I'm a student of history. I love history. If anyone can tell me an example of a superpower that went out of their way to teach their children to hate the country that they're in, I'm all ears. I think it's the first time it's ever happened in the history of the species, and I've asked many different historians. When a wealthy, powerful, benevolent superpower has decided to teach their young, we actually hate the place that is pretty awesome. It is civilizational suicide. There will be historians 50 to 100 years from now writing books and teaching college classes, trying to try to answer the America question. How could a country that did so much good in World War II be so wealthy, be the beacon of light and liberty, have so much opportunity for so many people, go out of its way? And my answer is very simple. When you are secular and you do not believe in God, you must fill it with fake religions. Don't believe me? Go drive in one of these neighborhoods like I just did. BLM, gay pride, those are the pagan religions of the day. You always have to fill it with some source of meaning, whether it be the false god of BLM or the false god of trans surgeries for kids, whatever it is. They have to feel an attachment to something, and it's out of guilt. If you don't know how to deal with your guilt, because everyone feels guilt at some point, you're going to do some pretty wacky stuff. And boy, are we living in a society that is just ridden with pity and guilt. Pity for ourselves and our own state of affairs, it's rather remarkable. But if you have a strong attachment to the generation that came before you, you can inoculate yourself against that virus. So let's go through it. It's the only one of the Ten Commandments that involves a direct promise and also your nation. So we talk about politics, we talk about our country, we should probably isolate the one of the Ten Commandments that deals with the country. So honor, what does that word mean in Hebrew? It means heavily or to treat with seriousness or intentionality. What does curse mean in Hebrew? Lightly, it's the same root. So if you were to treat your parents lightly, you were to curse them. Now what does that mean to honor your mother and father? It means that when you're at college, you enter college believing that your parents are more correct than your professors. That does not happen. Professors at almost every single university across the country go out of their way to invalidate everything a parent has taught them up until age 18. Your parents are outdated, they're probably racist, they're terrible. Oh by the way, thanks for paying to the tuition to bring you here, but we're going to turn you into little revolutionaries basically. Finally, honor your mother and father so that you may live long in the land of which you are in. Marxism depends on three things. The obliteration of religion, property, and family. Private property, they're doing a great job and they're going to continue to do it. Religion, church rates are going down dramatically and they've infiltrated the American church. But the family was always the one that was able to say no. And you are going to have to, someone's going to have to explain this to me, how so many suburban house moms here in Colorado want their kids to suffer. It is unbelievable to me. This is one of the most radical like trans sanctuaries in the entire country. It's not ISIL, I'm sure you all know families or kids where you have parents that are excited to go get their 15 -year -old's breasts removed. It's amazing to me. And so the family's totally getting obliterated and deteriorated. That's why this school matters so much though, and why what you're doing matters so much, is that a strong nuclear family is a bulwark to any form of tyranny or any sort of despotism that we live through. And is Marxism really the kind of diabolical, and I use that word intentionally, enemy to the American republic and the American project. As it aims to do these things, as it continues to try to put these ideas into the zeitgeist, we ask ourselves the question, how does one fight back against it? And that's why the rise of homeschool and this alternative schooling is so exciting. They want you to just release your kid to the public government school and never ask a question after that. If you actually read their literature, they don't believe that it's your child. It's the state's child. That's not an exaggeration. You might say, Charlie, how did Colorado get so wacky? You know Colorado is the second most educated state in the country? College -educated state? There is your answer. Is that if you are non -stop producing people with college diplomas that believe men can give birth and have degrees in North African lesbian poetry, don't be surprised when your politics go insane. I trust welders, plumbers and construction workers far more than any given professor at, no offense, CU Boulder. I'm sorry, I just have to say it. I'm sorry. And so we must build new things. And I mentioned this earlier, we do not do a good enough job of defending our institutions from infiltration because we let our guard down and they take advantage of our good intentions. How many times do you feel like, well, what's the big deal? I want to be accepting to all people. So here's the playbook. It's so simple. Get a seat at the table. Complain relentlessly till I'm able to debase the leader on fake accusations and then I control the institution. How many times have you seen that? FBI, military, university campuses, major corporations, and they're relentless. You know what they operate? They operate like a bacterial infection that will not go away, that will just gnaw and gnaw and grow and grow and multiply. And we're like, well, my goodness, the CRT, DEI people, they used to have two seats at the table. Now they have 10 seats at the table and I don't want to be called a racist because that's the worst thing that you could be called. And so let's just let them control everything. So how do you summarize CRT? Call everything racist until you control it. That's it. That's what CRT is. Queer theory, call everything transphobic until you control it. It's a means to power. It's not about liberation. It's not about teaching history. It's a means to institutional takeover. And so the alternative is once they take over everything, build new stuff. And that's what you're doing. And so my one piece of advice to you guys, build, be bold, but please be vigilant about them trying to capture your institution. Because they don't build new stuff. That's what's crazy. They don't ever build anything beautiful or bold. They just take over stuff that we have built with our value system. And then we're like, well, we used to have that great thing. We used to have that church and used to have that school and used to have that place and used to have that company. And so they're experts at takeover. And so building new things is quite honestly the only and the best option. So I'll say this in closing. I get asked all the time, Charlie, this is a Christian audience, Charlie, do you think that we're in the end times? And I'm not a pastor, I'm not a theologian. So I'm not equipped to answer that, but I can say this. I'm very concerned that people are being taken advantage of by some pastors out there where they say, Charlie, Jesus is coming next Thursday. I don't have to do anything. I don't have to fight. Look, people ask, are you pre -trib or are you post -trib? I'm pan -trib. It's all going to pan out in the end. So I'm on the welcoming committee, not the planning committee. Okay. So this whole thing is a bunch of, you know, it's somewhat of a distraction. And, but, you know, people say, Charlie, you know, we must look, yes, we must look at the signs at the time. It's important to know what it means in the days of Noah. All that stuff is great and really important. I understand that. However, here's where it drives me nuts and I see it happen. And I want to make sure this might, if this touches one of you tonight, I will have done my job. Okay. Because you might be listening to some of those overly emphasized end times pastors, and you might feel disempowered and you might feel like you don't have to do anything. If I could just reach one of you, I feel I've done my job, which is the right response is if you feel that the world is ending and Jesus is coming soon, is not run to the Hill with the kids, is to occupy till Jesus comes. Is to hold as much turf and must terrain for his imminent return. And that must be our attitude because I'm afraid it has become an excuse. And I mean that very carefully. I've seen it where people say, Charlie, I don't need to donate. I don't need to start schools. I got asked by a Christian the other day, why even have kids? Because Jesus is coming again so quickly. I was like, wow. Jesus said the time or the day and the hour is unknown. It could be five minutes. It could be 50 years or 500 years. I get in trouble for even saying that because people say, Charlie, it's no more than five years. I said, listen, we don't know. It's what you do that matters. The enemy would love nothing more than to have us remain complacent, remain neutral if we are off by 200 years. God wants us to fight for what is good and what is righteous, regardless of what the signs of the times are telling us around us. And the most important thing that we as Christians have done a bad job and we as Protestants have done a bad job of is this. And I have to brag on the Catholics for a second. They have done a much better job than we as Protestants have done, a much better job at building colleges. And they're all woke now, but at building. But that's what happens. We don't defend anything. We build these beautiful things and the bacteria takes over. And so then at K through 12 schools, and I'll prove it to you, how many Bible believing spirit -filled Christians are on the US Supreme Court? There are far more Catholics. It's because they are experts at multi -generational type building and passing down values. I think we can learn something from that. And I think that one of the reasons we haven't done that is that since 1950 there's been a strain of Christianity that has told us we're getting zapped up in the next five minutes. And that might be true, but you have to act like it's not. And you have to act like you could have a lot more time left on the clock. And so if we change that attitude, by the way, the whole ball game changes. I hope you understand. You will ignite one of the most powerful silent majorities if you get Christians that have been waiting for the imminent return the last 60 years and done very little, and you get them into an action phase and realize that they have to try to act, watch out. All of a sudden the enemy is going to be on the run in a very, very big way. Okay, let's do some questions and I'll stay as long as you'll have me. So, okay. Okay, so I have one question and I'm going to turn it out to all you guys. So get your questions ready. The college thing is a big deal. I feel like we've been even asked, do you send your kids to college? My husband's out of the room so I can say this. They're not going to Boulder. For those of you who don't know where my husband went and where he's very involved with right now, but it's a tough call. What do you think the chances are if let's say our kids go through a school like this, make it, get into a college percentage wise, where are we at with dropping off the bandwagon? You'll lose one out of four. Across where that's what you see in universities. Even the strongest K through 12 that I've seen, homeschool, one out of four will be lost. If they have a public school, you'll lose closer to 50, 60 percent. Wow. Okay guys, we've got a lot of work to do. We're going to try to break that statistic. Or just not send them to college. Yeah. Okay. Well, yes. Well, right. Well, that'll be an open thing. Unless they go to Hillsdale or CCU, but yes. But those are the exceptions. Let me be very clear. Yes. That is not how most schools are. Okay. Yeah. Okay. Good. Very good. That was very enthusiastic.
Kash Patel: 'Ethnic Cleansing' Is a Myth Pushed by Media, Elites
"I'm always like I've never been so clear. This absolutely is a war for civilized man against the savage. Again, it's a fair debate about what the U .S. policy role should be. I get that. I'm just talking about what's happening. They have declared us their enemy, the infidel. That's just a fact. They've already done their damage here. They'll do it all over the place. But there's a lot of myths out there. You know, and I'm really getting tired of the ethnic cleansing genocide myth being gated by morons like AOC who acknowledge she knows nothing about the region. There is the Arabs in East. the Middle There are Arabs that serve in the mess it on the Supreme Court. They don't have those freedoms in the Arab world. So when you're talking about ethnic cleansing, how? By having freedom and liberty for Arabs in your how they're talking about. No, you're absolutely right. And it just shows the hypocrisy of the way it did. This doesn't happen overnight. This was a degradation by the mainstream media and the government gangsters in the political elite class coming together to, quote unquote, get Trump in the last decade, getting Trump in the next two years, getting Trump. And what they have is BLM with celebrations the Palestine Liberation Organization in New York City. You have the Harvard University president coming out and saying, oh, we should be ticked off at Israel for daring to defend themselves against a foreign terrorist organization. And when you have that radical agenda permeate through not just the media, but our educational institutions and government elitism, then the one thing you have is a universal failure of those people who are standing on the wall guarding against this defense protecting our nation. And if you don't think that this is happening around the world, look at what Iran did collectively because Joe Biden gave up Bagram. We have nobody looking at Iran's right because we gave up our only command and control node against terrorists that have been growing and partnering with Iran, Hezbollah and Hamas. And this is just another example of the politicization and Joe Biden's disastrous policies
ADF Counsel Jeremy Tedesco on the Fight Against Censorship
"Wanted to bring on one of the senior counsel at the Alliance Defending Freedom to talk more about what they're doing. Jeremy Tedesco, welcome back. Thanks, Eric. Appreciate you having me on. Well, listen, this is important. I keep saying to people, we're in a war here and people need to know who the good guys are. The Alliance Defending Freedom, you're the good guys and you're some of the good guys. And you are fighting really, really hard. And people need to understand they have to support you guys. They have to because otherwise you couldn't do what you're doing. And what you're doing, I mean, have you guys have been in the Supreme Court, what, 15 times? I mean, it's insane. Yeah, we won 15 cases at the Supreme Court in the last 12 years. We just won one a couple months ago. 303 Creative versus Alanis, which was a case about compelled speech. Can the government force you to speak messages that you disagree with? And we won that case. And that's a that's a huge free speech win for every American, let alone our client, Laurie Smith, in that case. So we've had an unbelievable success at the Supreme Court and we hope to continue that. Well, talk about what you were doing. You're I mean, ADF is also involved in. I don't know, I don't even know the terms to describe it. DEI, talk about what you guys at ADF are doing on that score. You know, we we exist to protect free speech and religious freedom when government is censoring and discriminating on the basis of religion. But one of the things that's happening in culture more and more, I mean, your listeners know this very well, is that private companies are involved in that censorship as well. And that's not an accident. The reality is that a lot of activists on the on the left side of the political equation, they understand it's very hard for them to push their agenda through the government because of the barriers of the Constitution and the First Amendment. Their agenda is also not popular at the ballot box, for the most part. But if they can get capture, all these large corporations that control access to essential public essential services, like access to the Digital Public Square or having a bank account or access to payment processing, then they can basically de facto regulate America in a way that's consistent with their agenda. And that's what they're doing through ESG, environmental, social and governance, activism and DEI, diversity, equity, inclusion, activism as well. And the corporations are really listening to them. But that's largely because it's in a one sided conversation. So we're pushing back on that a lot of different ways at ADF. One of the main ones is through this index, the viewpoint diversity score index that we put together that rates major corporations on their respect for free speech and religious freedom. And so that's government sensors are a huge problem. But private sensors in the day and age we live are also an enormous problem. And private censorship can have just as much of a chilling effect on people's willingness to exercise their fundamental freedoms as government censorship. And at ADF, we're committed to figuring out how to solve the private censorship problem.
A highlight from CMMThursday Hour 2 (Michael Torbin 231005)
"Welcome to the Eric Metaxas show. Did you ever see the movie The Blob starring Steve McQueen? The blood curdling threat of The Blob. Well, way back when, Eric had a small part in that film, but they had to cut his scene because The Blob was supposed to eat him, but he kept spitting him out. Oh, the whole thing was just a disaster. Anyway, here's the guy who's not always that easy to digest. Eric Metaxas. Ladies and gentlemen, I told you, I told you that in this segment I would bring on a senior counsel for the Alliance Defending Freedom, Jack Wagner. And as it turns out, he just corrected me. I'm mispronouncing Jack. He pronounces it Vincent, which is bizarre of Vincent. If you insist, Vincent Wagner, welcome to the program. Thanks, Eric. It's an easy mistake to make. Yes, yes, it is. No, you know, I was saying to you that I was getting confused because I mentioned Jack Phillips. A lot of people know the case of Jack Phillips, the baker who has been attacked and attacked and attacked in Colorado, and you guys at the Alliance Defending Freedom have been defending him. And the head of ADF, Kristen Wagner, no relationship to Vincent Wagner. You said there's there's an O in her name. That's right. She got two G's and an O that I that I like. Well, sorry, an extra G and an O that are missing from my name. What what what's that all about? OK, so in any event, I'm trying to confuse my audience. So but but I got an email from her this morning talking about you guys at the Alliance Defending Freedom, defending Jack Phillips, the masterpiece bake shop owner who I've met him several times, a humble man, a man of God who refuses to do what people tell him to do because of his faith. And he has been so attacked in Colorado. And if it weren't for you guys at the Alliance Defending Freedom, he would just be literally out of business, bankrupt. I mean, that's one thing that maybe a lot of people are aware of that the Alliance Defending Freedom has done. But the fact that that battle goes on, can you say a little bit about I mean, this has been many, many, many years that ADF pro bono for free has been defending this hero, Jack Phillips in Colorado. Can you say why that's still going on? Well, Colorado and folks in Colorado haven't haven't let Jack move on with his life. I mean, just this week, the Colorado Supreme Court agreed to take Jack's case again. So the fight continues. And like you said, Eric, don't charge Jack a dime. We don't charge any of our clients a dime. We do this all for free to protect Americans freedom. And you may be already familiar with the five areas we focus on. Jack's falls within the category of religious liberty. We want to protect all Americans freedom to exercise their religion, not just think about it privately in their house or in the church pew, but to exercise it in society to protect religious freedom, protect the free speech of all Americans. You know, that comes up a lot lately on college campuses and where a lot of those cases are and protect the sanctity of life. We we played a big role in last year's victory in Dobbs. Our team, our life team was helping the state of Mississippi defend the law that the Supreme Court eventually held was constitutional and overruled Roe on.

Will Scharf: What If Tanya Chutkan Declines Case Dismissal?
"Judges, and I think it would be, if not favorably received, certainly carefully looked at. Now, if she, for the public out here, so if she rules, no, I'm not buying that, can she go ahead with the trial before the appeal is filed and heard? I think President Trump's lawyers would have a very strong ground to request a stay pending final resolution of the issue on immunity. That's how this would work in the case of a claim of judicial immunity or legislative immunity. We're in somewhat untested grounds, of course, because no president before in American history has been criminally indicted for acts in office the way that President Trump has been indicted. But I think his legal team would have a very strong argument for a stay of all proceedings pending final resolution, even if that goes all the way up to the Supreme Court of these presidential immunity issues. Because if it isn't stayed, then what happens, of course, is this trial judge basically makes the ultimate decision. I don't mean of guilt and innocence and jail time, I mean the ultimate decision, because you're going to go through a full fledged trial on a matter where you're challenging whether you should go through a full fledged trial, correct? That's right, and that's why it's so important that this particular motion has been brought when it's been brought. We're dealing with issues of immunity, typically the courts look at immunity claims and they try to decide that long before you get to trial, long before even trial preparation starts. That's the whole point of being immune from prosecution in cases like this. So, even if things don't go well in front of the DC district,
Will Scharf: Trump Asks Judge to Dismiss Election Interference Case
"Of his presidential responsibilities, that he cannot be prosecuted for them unless he is first both impeached and convicted by U the .S. House of Representatives in the Senate, which he of course was not in fact convicted. So it's a really important filing. It's one that I expect will end up in front of the United States Supreme Court, I think potentially pretty soon, but it's an important day. It's a day that could result in that entire prosecution being thrown out. All right, let me ask you a few questions. Number one, the judge is Tanya Chutkin, who should have recused herself. Overwhelming case that she's not of the judicial temperament to handle this particular case. So she'll be making the original ruling on this filing, will she not? That's correct, and you know, Trump's lawyers have already made the argument for recusal that she's not been, let's say favorably disposed towards, but significantly immunity motions like this are typically immediately appealable. So the normal process for a case like this would be for this motion to be taken. She issues her ruling on it, and if she were to rule against it, I think there would be grounds for an immediate appeal, an interlocutory appeal as it's called, up to the
A highlight from The Power of Hispanic Serving Institutions
"Hello, and welcome to the College Admissions Decoded podcast, an occasional series in the National Association for College Admission Counseling, or NACAC. I'm your host, Eddie Pickett. I'm a longtime NACAC member and a member of the NACAC board of directors. In my day job, I'm a senior associate dean of admissions and director of recruitment at Pomona College in Claremont, California. NACAC is an association of more than 25 ,000 professionals at high schools, colleges, universities, and nonprofit organizations, as well as independent counselors who support and advise students and families through the college admissions process. Our topic today is Hispanic Serving Institutions, also known as HSIs. Historically, HSIs are colleges and universities with Hispanic undergraduate enrollment of at least 25%. In 1992, Congress formally recognized HSIs and created federal appropriations to support these institutions. Today there are over 500 HSIs in the United States. HSIs play a vital role in the communities they serve, offering culturally relevant programs, a sense of belonging, and services that help students succeed. For this episode, we're joined by Belinda Sandoval -Sasweta, associate vice president of at admissions University of Redlands in California. Welcome Belinda. Thanks Eddie. Happy to be here. We're also joined by Argenis Rodriguez, director of a support program for students. Welcome Argenis. Happy to be here. Thank you both for joining us today on the podcast, particularly after this summer and the Supreme Court decision that came down. So let's just get started with the first question. Belinda, can you tell us a little bit about your background and the work with HSIs that you've done? My pronouns are she, hers, and Aya. I am a Mexican -American. I identify as a Chicana. And so I serve on the advisory council, which is made up of faculty, staff, and students. And we work together as a council to write our first grant for Hispanic -serving institutions, which we were proud recipients of this summer. And Argenis, same question. Can you tell us a little bit about your background and your work that you've done with HSIs? So I'm currently the director of a program that's aimed to support the specific needs of students as they are pursuing an undergraduate degree. And the program balances academic advising and personal support, along with career exploration, leadership development, and community engagement. And so what do Hispanic -serving institutions guarantee to offer students that other colleges and universities might not? Hispanic -serving institutions are intentional in supporting this population of students, like offering a sense of community and relatability. And Hispanic -serving institutions also offer a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. And they will continue to play that critical role in providing Hispanic students with the education they need in order to enter their career fields. Very similar to Argenis, you know, I think that institutions are, they show their commitment to serving students. And I was actually reading Gina Garcia's book on Hispanic institutions in practice. And part of that really does a call, really has a call for us to not just be an institution that enrolls students, but be an institution that serves Hispanic students or Latinx or Latinos. So I think a Hispanic -serving institution is thinking about how to not just enroll them, but really truly serve them and serve them well while they are students. I like that idea of serving but also being intentional. So Argenis, can you start this next one? Just how do institutions approach students' success for HSIs? So the way that HSIs approach students' success is by utilizing data to determine what programming can provide support to Hispanic students in close equity gaps. So the data is utilized specifically to track multiple factors, such as first -year progress, graduation rates, and cohort program involvement. Then to Belinda, sitting on the admissions side, are there other unique factors that colleges and universities are tracking, such as first -gen or anything else with this HSI population? We certainly track first -gen. We also do a lot of programming at the recruitment level around language. So for example, we might do sessions in Spanish, we give tours in Spanish, just to give families an opportunity to really feel like they belong on a college campus. And I think that's a big part of that recruitment phase of being an HSI, is really thinking about how to incorporate families into this process. I would also say, you know, that student success looks at both how the student performs while they are a student, but it also is about how a student does once they transition out of the college community, right, and that professional sense of, or transitioning into the professional workspace. And so we're still thinking about ways to do that. With our new HSI grant, we were able to infuse funds into existing programs that we know are doing very well to retain both Latino students, but really all students. Can you tell us a few of those programs that you're specifically referencing? Sure. The programs that I'm referencing are things like our First -Year Journey, which are a couple of days of an outdoor experience that students do very well in transitioning to the university. And so we really want and encourage our Hispanic students, our first generation college students to participate in things like that, as well as our summer bridge program, and our mentor program, which is called STEP. Sounds like you're doing some great work over there, University of Redlands. Kudos to you all. Thanks, Eddie. And what I've noticed also with HSI, similar to HBCUs, is there's an immense version of pride in their schools, and both graduates, staff, and students affiliated with these schools. So Argenis, coming to you, can you talk about how that pride is nurtured on campus, and why so many students find the HSI experience attractive? Community colleges are an essential building block in the education journey of many Hispanic students. HSIs continue to be attractive because they foster community. Our commitment to Hispanic students and the status as an HSI is reflected in the college's participation in the Excelencia in Education National Initiative. You know, the CO is a national certification for institutions intentionally serving Latino students through data, practice, and leadership. So you pointed out community colleges being a strong support system. Can we just talk about how to get students comfortable at the community college and then also transitioning them from the two -year into the four -year and the importance of that too? So an example of this is by one of our programs that we have on campus called Connexiones and Connexions, which is a program designed for Latinx students. And the purpose is to increase engagement and clarify their academic and career interests. And another example, I guess if we're talking about how we are assisting transitioning them out, it's through a program that we also have on campus, which is Grow with Google. And that's a career readiness program that is centered on helping students, providing them with the preparation needed to enter the workforce through digital skills and career workshops. Thank you for that. It definitely always thinking about what are the opportunities presented by different colleges. And we hear about certain schools, not about all. And so as we think about the vastness of higher ed, that's also really important. And so Belinda, similar question coming to you, but just how does the University of Redlands build pride on your campus? I think there's a lot of different ways that we build pride, certainly with the traditions that are just part of the institution and making sure that all students feel like they are part of who, you know, of the institution and the fabric of the institution and making them like feel this isn't just, you know, an age old tradition that certain students happen to connect to, but that we try to infuse that into everything that we do. But I think, you know, at the end of the day, it's really about validating who a student is. And I think that is a real big part of coming into the institution. I mean, a lot of what I talk about with families when I do Spanish programming, for example, is that, you know, this is their community, too. And for a lot of our students that are first gen that are part of that identifies Latino or that are part of the Hispanic community, they've never been or have never set foot on a campus before. It's really talking about this is your space, too, really is powerful for them. And we get questions like, can I bring salsa to my daughter, you know, during on the weekends? Or can I, you know, go to the soccer game or can I do those kinds of things that if you've gone to college feels so like, of course you can do that. But if you are a first gen family who's never been to a college in the U .S. before, those are, you know, important questions to ask because they just don't know. And so I think that validation of who a student is and who, you know, their family is and the make of the dynamic of that family and where they come from really is important. It goes a long way. If you know me, I'm a numbers person. I love some good numbers. I want to give a shout out to University of Redlands as well. They're about 50 percent first gen students. You want to talk about creating opportunities. That's creating an opportunity. You know, at Pomona, we're about 20 percent and we're really excited about that for a private school being at nearly 50 percent. Kudos to you. So thank you for doing that great work and creating those opportunities for everyone. So staying in that numbers scene, I'm going to throw out this other stat that I saw was pretty interesting. So according to Excelencia in Education, HSIs in the U .S. enroll 66 percent of Latino students. For reference, there are 500 of them. There are about 4000 colleges, so 66 percent of students and about an eighth of the schools. So more power to HSIs to start. But with the student population increasing in the U .S. faster than any other population in terms of higher education enrollment, what does that mean for the future of HSIs? Well, I think that it means good things for all of us that are currently identified as a HSI. You know, we are committed to the work. We want to make sure that we are creating spaces that validate our students. I would also say, you know, that it really does speak also to all institutions. And I think it's a call for all institutions to really think about, you know, you have this fast growing minority group. And so that so I think the HSIs are in a unique position and that we have been thinking about how we are serving our Hispanic and Latino students. But I do think that all institutions really need to be thinking about that, about how they are serving this fast growing group, demographic group. I mean, it's a wonderful opportunity, right, because HSIs are now at the forefront of educating and preparing Hispanic students, you know, for the future. And that it seems like a very colorful future from the data that we're seeing as well coming down the pipeline. Students are starting to make their choices. Many prospective HSI students have a variety of options when selecting a college, including PWIs or predominantly white institutions, the term that we've used historically by the Department of Education. What should students think about when considering whether to attend an HSI or a PWI? And what have you heard from students on this question? And we'll go to our hand is first. So students who have expressed interest on PWIs, from my perspective, like they often worry about the cost of attendance and HSI community colleges offer Hispanic students a quality, affordable education that can prepare them to continue their education at a PWI if that's what the student is wanting to go for afterwards. Belinda. What I would say is, you know, every institution opens the door. And so I think whether a student selects a PWI or an HSI, I think it really is about whether a student is going to take advantage of the resources that are available. And a student that is thinking about an HSI oftentimes really has a good sense of who they are and what it is that they're looking to do and what kind of community they're going to be able to, you know, be, let's say, successful in. A student attending a PWI and I was one of them, I was a student that came from the Inland Empire and in California and went straight to PWI and I loved my experience there. It challenged me to think about who I was and my identity in a different way and how I could, you know, challenge the system a little bit to include me into it. But I would say that it made me that much stronger when I moved into the professional workforce. So I wouldn't say that one is better than the other. I would just say that when you're looking at institutions, the HSI's are going to provide a different environment than a PWI. And there are some very basic things. Like I give examples of, you know, you go from things like selling Mexican candy in the inspired out music of the commons and the quad area to the pedagogy and that is is being taught in the classroom to the faculty that are being hired. There's an intentionality there in a way that is not present in other places. Yeah, thank you. I always just tell students, like, know what you're getting yourself into. You know, as you're making your choices, you don't have to have a list of all PWIs or all HSIs. You can have a mix of them. As you get your decisions back, that's when you really have to make those choices. But understand the situation you're walking yourself into and also what do you want out of college? Because what you want isn't always the same as your peer or somebody who looks like you. So understand what you are wanting and what I and why I'm here at this school. So that's what I tell students. And now the question that we've all been waiting for, probably, and particularly thinking about this Supreme Court case, the SFFA case that just came out. And so considering the recent decision on race conscious admissions in the Supreme Court, some may question the need to focus on and provide federal funding to HSIs and other institutions that serve specific populations. What would you say to those who question the value of supporting HSIs? The recent decisions are not a deterrent. Like, HSIs understand that race does impact the student's access to higher education. You know, this can also affect persistence, retention, graduation and career outcomes. But that HSIs are also committed to diversity, equity and inclusion. And I would add that we talked about this fact earlier, right, that with that Latinos, they're the fastest growing demographic group in the United States. And I think a big part of what we are here to talk about is how do we make sure that our institutions are serving our students well? And so really thinking about what the value is of supporting HSIs, I think the value is that we are educating the future of the country. I want to be very clear to the students and counselors listening to this podcast that the discussion topic that you can write about in your essays, you can still write about whatever you want because I've been asked, well, you know, I'm Latino, can I write about my application? Yes, you can write about whatever you want. What the Supreme Court has done is it's limited our ability to evaluate race as a status alone. And so we can evaluate the discrimination faced. We can evaluate the motivation because of and the characters you've learned because of your race. But we can't just use race alone. So that's what the Supreme Court has done. It has not actually limited your ability to speak about race in your application whatsoever. So I want to be clear about that. I'm afraid that's all the time we have today. Many thanks to Belinda and Argenis for a great conversation. And thanks to you, our friends in the audience, for joining us for this podcast.

"the u.s. supreme court" Discussed on Northwest Newsradio
"The Justice Department appealing to the U.S. Supreme Court as our show went to air. Here to talk more about it is our senior national policy reporter and flaherty and okay, explain this whole thing to us. We heard from the 5th circuit weighing in saying that they're going to allow mifepristone to remain on the market for now, but access is going to be severely restricted. So instead of being able to take this drug at ten weeks, for example, you can only take it at 7 weeks. You're going to have to be able to have three in person office visits with a qualified physician. It essentially rolls back every win that the abortion rights movement had on this drug in the past two decades. So kind of a bittersweet victory for them. It keeps it on the market, but it snaps us back to these rules that we saw in 2000 that the struggle will be much more tightly regulated. So the practicalities of this, a woman can not take it after 7 weeks, but most women don't even know they're pregnant at 7 weeks. Yeah, that's exactly right. So 6 weeks is usually around the time that the earliest that a patient finds out that they are pregnant. So we have lots of data that this drug, according to the Food and Drug Administration that it's safe, even past a little bit ten weeks, it's commonly prescribed to women, even as far as 11 weeks or 12 weeks, this saying only 7 weeks. So that's going to seriously restrict access to this drug. And you'll have to have three doctor's appointments before that. That's impossible too. Well, and particularly for patients in rural areas. So you're going to have one doctor's appointment to administer the mifepristone. The second two administer misoprostol, which is a second drug that aids in the abortion process. And the third is to assess any kind of complications. What the court says, they want people to report adverse effects. If FDA was no longer requiring people to report these adverse effects on the drug, so how would we know that it's safe? Well, the FDA argues, we don't require people to report adverse effects on other drugs that we've had on the market for years, such as Tylenol and the American medical association even pointed out yesterday. They think that this drug is safer than Viagra. So a lot of dueling realities on the safety issue of this drug. You've been talking to abortion rights activists. What are they saying about this decision and what will happen after this weekend? Well, the abortion rights groups say they are not hopeful and I've talked to the abortion opponents as well. And they say they're very encouraged by all of this. They say that the court is recognizing their claims that the abortion pill is dangerous. They're very helpful for how this moves forward.

"I'm Larry maggot with the Kinect faithly report. The U.S. Supreme Court this week her arguments in Gonzalez versus Google, which focused on section two 30 of the communications decency act. Specifically, whether companies should be held liable for user content promoted by their algorithms. Politicians from both parties have criticized two 30 for opposite reasons. Some Democrats argue that it takes away any consequences if social media companies allow things like hate speech, misinformation or defamatory comments. Some Republicans say that two 30 gives companies the power to suppress political speech.

"20 to the lingering burden of student loan debt reaches all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, but one justice says it may not affect his judgment as the high court hears arguments on a White House student loan relief program. In his memoir, my grandfather's son, Supreme Court Justice clarence Thomas, writes that a friend suggested declaring bankruptcy to get out from under the crushing weight of all my student loans. Thomas rejected that idea. And as the staunchest conservative on the court, he's expected to oppose The White House effort to relieve $20,000 in outstanding student loans. Of the 7 justices on the court who are parents, the investment records of four show that they have piled money into tax free, college savings accounts. That's Associated Press correspondent Jackie Quinn. In Maryland oversight of the state's troubled 5 29 college savings plan, could shift to the state treasurer's office and there could be a wind down of those prepaid college tuition plans. That's the gist of legislation set to be introduced in Annapolis, this coming week. According to Senate president Bill Ferguson, last year, Maryland's 5 29 board temporarily halted interest payments on the prepaid tuition accounts after an account glitch. At Johns Hopkins, I'm Elizabeth Tracy. Frailty is a condition that develops among older adults, characterized by weight loss, inactivity, weakness, slow walking speed, and exhaustion. Now a Johns Hopkins study shows that declining ability to smell may predict the development of frailty. Otolaryngologist Nicholas Rowan, one of the studies authors, explains the finding. There's some evidence that says that maybe sense of smell is just another one of these bad things that happen to us. And if you have enough bad things, then perhaps you're at bigger risk. And then there's this other concept that frailty is actually a syndrome. It's a continuum. So as you get older and you progress along this overall trajectory, where you ultimately reach a point of no return. And what we found was, it does look like there's probably an association between both threshold or sensitivity and identification with frailty, but threshold or sensitivity is actually more closely related to physical reality. Rowan notes that future studies will look at whether intervention helps at Johns Hopkins. I'm Elizabeth Tracy

"Part, it's the ruling, the highest of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that struck down roe versus wade, legalizing abortion. But it's really been more the response to that ruling that I think is moving the needle among some voters. And by that, I mean, you've seen Republican led states imposing abortion bans or they're calling trigger laws that restrict abortions after the roe V wade law was struck down. And I think some voters in particular saw this response and that really energized them as, hey, this is real. These states are going ahead and restricting abortions the way the U.S. Supreme Court ruling allows them. And I think that's motivated in particular suburban women and Democrats to really engage in a selection in a way that you haven't seen hadn't seen before.

But first, whether transitory or not, the supply chain problems we are seeing are persisting for his view on the supply chain and why it isn't getting fixed. I spoke with Columbia business school professor and dean emeritus Glenn Hubbard. Well, it is slowly getting fixed. If you look in the goods markets, it is slowly being alleviated, but there will be problems for some time. This isn't going away this year. In the labor market, you have inflation, people have wage demands, perhaps, that are different than before the pandemic. And obviously long COVID changes in the types of jobs, people want to do. This will sort itself out, but it's not going to be quick. So how long is the long term? As I guess my question, and specifically on skills, in your book, actually, the wall in the bridge, you talked about training people for specific skills. Do we have a longer term problem here that we don't have people trained for the jobs that we need them for? We definitely do. And in fact, for the jobs they may now want to do as they change their careers, we're not a society that does very well at this. There are a lot of things we could do. Businesses can do government could you, but we're not doing much of it. What about the situation with the economy more generally? And particularly on inflation, we have a chair Jay Powell saying, essentially, he's going to do whatever it takes to get inflation down even if it means recession, which is a bigger danger right now inflation or recession. Both. And here's what I mean by that. I think what chair Powell is saying is getting inflationary expectations back in the box and inflation back in the box is job one Doing that in a so called soft landing to my mind is very hard. Inflation is starting to come down, but it's not going to come down to 2% all by itself. It might come down to the low fours or high threes by itself. That leaves share Powell in the box of action. Unfortunately for him, because inflationary expectations are a worrisome thing at the moment, he may still have to be very aggressive. So unfortunately

Yeah, the worst 6 months on Wall Street since 1970. I mean, it's really hard to believe that it's been that bad, but you do have the S&P 500 down 21%. It's just not very common to have two quarters in a row of losses on Wall Street, given the nature of things. So that kind of is a historical comment, really. And we finished with a drop of about 9 tenths of a percent for the S&P 500 and the Dow was down about 8 tenths of a percent tech stocks even worse. The NASDAQ was off 1.3%. We had small caps down as well. It's shaping up a little bit differently in Asia. It seems like we may kind of roll a little bit over as the day wears on, but we'll have to wait and see. We started on firm footing, and right now the MSCI Asia Pacific index is actually flat to slightly lower. So we have finally given up a lot of the gains. The nikkei is down three tenths of a percent.

Well, the sell off in stocks did deep in after that week consumer spending data fueled worries about a recession, Republican senator and banking committee member pat toomey addressing the debate between inflation versus recession and saying for now recession concerns need to be put on hold. Inflation is a bigger risk because it's here. It's real and if inflation doesn't come under control quickly, it does enormous long-term damage. Is there a risk that we have a recession? Yes, I think clearly there's a significant risk that within the next 12 months will have a recession. My quarrel with the fed and how it has managed monetary policy and the reason we've gotten in this dilemma is because I think there's a mindset at the fed that sees inflation as a psychological problem rather than a monetary problem.

I certainly don't think that we're going to go back to levels that we've seen in the past, like 60, $70, just because the demand supply mismatches so high.

Well, you heard Charlie mentioned gun stocks moving higher in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court decision establishing the right to carry firearms in New York. Well, earlier today, New York City mayor Eric Adams made a public statement about this Supreme Court decision. Here's a portion of what the mayor had to say. The opinion claims to be based on nation, historical past, but does not account for the reality of today. It ignores the presence and an endangered our future. That was New York City mayor Eric Adams addressing the media earlier today. We've got a great voice to talk all about this. June Grasso is Bloomberg news legal analyst. She's also the host of Bloomberg lots, weeknights at 10 p.m. Wall Street time right here on a Bloomberg radio Junes with us now in the Bloomberg interactive broker studio. June, help clear this up for me because I gotta confess on the little confused here. We heard from the mayor's chief of police who said that the police commissioner I should say, who said nothing changes. Here, in New York City. But at the same time, my understanding with this decision is that there is a change and we could go out and get a gun at this point. Well, you're both right. Okay. The liberal arts answer, I like it. How did you know? The Supreme Court said that New York's law, her current law is unconstitutional, and that people under the Second Amendment have a right to carry a handgun in public. That doesn't mean there can't be laws restricting that right. So even in the concurring opinion, justice Brett Kavanaugh joined by the chief said that you could still have licensing requirements for things like background checks, mental health records checks, training and firearms handling and in laws regarding the use of force. So the governor said today that she's going to call a special session so that New York, the legislature can get together and work on a new law. So at this law doesn't work and you can't go out right now and get a firearms permit based on oh, anyone can get it, but coming up in the future will find out what the next law is, and as the mayor said, you know, they're basing this, they're looking back, they're textualists, they're looking back at they say, to determine whether a regulation is constitutional, look at the text of the constitution and the history of our country. That puts a lot of laws in jeopardy, like red flag laws. The so called boyfriend loophole, they weren't around, so there's a lot of questions after this opinion. So this was in New York law. What are the implications for the rest of the U.S. though? Because, I mean, New York, one of at least 6 states that had a law like this. Well, the rest of those laws would be unconstitutional if they were brought before a court and you've got to believe that they would be. So those states will have to do what New York is going to do, which is try to pass a law that, in other words, those states are may carry states. You're allowed to have shall carry laws. So that have, you know, that don't say, oh, it's no one can get a gun except for except for self defense self defense or you have to protect yourself, you have to show us why. You can't have that, but you can have, as I said, different kinds of restrictions, and the states will have to look at that and pass different kinds of laws. And then we'll go through the whole process. They'll go to court and be challenged, and then we'll see if they pass the rigors. Help me understand what happens next week. If we're sitting here talking about roe V wade, essentially being overturned. And that being kicked to the states. So we have on the one hand, the Supreme Court saying that states do not have a right to make their own gun laws, but on the other hand, we're saying, next week, perhaps, that states do have a right to make restrictive abortion laws. Ironic. Ironic. It just shows you that textualism, despite the fact that people say, this means that everyone will interpret the constitution based on the text and everyone will be the same. It shows you how things can come out differently based on textualism. Now, with the abortion which we're expecting that they're going to overrule roe V wade, if they do, the president has said that he's going to try to

"You will and you will become a member of the U.S. Supreme Court That was senator Patrick Leahy telling Supreme Court nominee tangy Brown Jackson that no matter the ordeal of her nomination hearings where Republican senators have barraged her with a tax centering on crime and race she will be confirmed to be the first black woman to be a Supreme Court Justice because the Democrats have the votes Here's judge Jackson on what she'll bring to the court What I would hope to bring To the Supreme Court is very similar to what a 115 other justices have brought which is their life experiences their perspectives and mine include being a trial judge being an appellate judge being a public defender being a member of the sentencing commission In addition to my being a black woman lucky inheritor of the civil rights dream Joining me is Adam Winkler a professor at UCLA law school Start by in general giving me your opinion of judge Jackson and how she will how she would fare as the next Supreme Court Justice Well there seems to be no doubt that judge Brown Jackson is a very well qualified nominee to the Supreme Court As she has a lot of judicial experience she brings a diversity not just in terms of her racial identity but also in terms of her perspective having been on the sentencing commission having been a public defender Never had a public defender on the Supreme Court In other ways she's very much a standard candidate for the Supreme Court in the sense that she comes from a background of being a judge primarily in recent years Some of the district court and then on to the D.C. circuit and comes from Harvard Law School like so many justices these days come from the very very top law schools So she meets the traditional requirements but also has some elements of her past that give her a slightly different perspective In her opening statement she referred to her nomination as historic and said that she would be a fair and neutral arbiter What did you see in her opening statement and what she addressed about her role as a judge Well I think what we see in her opening statement is what we see from so many Supreme Court nominees lately which is kind of very uncontroversial statements that they will be neutral arbiters as chief justice John Roberts said in his confirmation hearings just an umpire calling balls and strikes The truth is we all know that judges really do approach cases with their values the philosophy influenced and informed by their own experiences And the sort of anodyne perspective on what judging is just a neutral arbiter almost like a machine that you can just put in information and get the right answer out of It seems to be what senators want these days but certainly doesn't accurately describe what any justice will do either justice Jackson or any other Yeah the Republicans seem to be looking to get her judicial philosophy Now I don't know if they're referring to is she a textualist or something else When a Supreme Court nominee explained their judicial philosophy that way have the textualist done that in the past Well we have had justices in the past to describe their judicial philosophy as originalists or textualists But the truth of the matter is that justices and the nominees do not want to get into their philosophies of how they are going to decide cases with any kind of specificity lest they lose political support It is one of these things where in the confirmation hearings if you have something controversial to say your best bet is just not to say it at all And hope that you have the votes to get through a nonetheless Given a Jackson's incredible background and clear qualifications barring any kind of obvious misstep saying something very controversial and unnecessary in these hearings She seems certain to be confirmed So there's really no gain for justices to get in at least in depth in their philosophy It could cost them a vote Republicans are using this soft on crime attack Sort of as a way also of attacking President Biden's commitment to Law & Order Will that work for them in her case Well I guess it depends what you mean June by work for them I think in the sense that they're not really going to derail this nomination I don't think they think they're going to derail this nomination I think what works for them is using these confirmation hearings as an opportunity to make political speeches to get your ten minutes of quotes in the various advertisements and Fox News and promoted by the local political party on Twitter or whatnot And really not about examining the experiences perspectives and philosophies of the nominees And so we see that over and over again And it's frankly it's not just a Republican thing It's a democratic thing too We saw that in with regards to the Trump nominees to the Supreme Court that Democrats were trying to tie the nominee to the policies of the Trump administration This is basically what the confirmation hearings have become Basically forums or senators to make political speeches that relate or not relate depending on the particular question to the nominee at hand Coming up next I'll continue this conversation with professor Adam Winkler and we'll talk about more of the.

"Before the U.S. Supreme Court is whether that's indeed so Or whether that it's either just governments each of the government can engage in under any circumstances or perhaps whether more specifically there's just a tradition of government bodies being able to censure their own members As a disciplinary action and that that makes it quite different from situations where there are employees let's say or students or members of the bar or doctors being censured by administer the board What were the main concerns the justices had Well there were a couple One was that they were skeptical that just a label censure is really that significant here They pointed out that of course the government can speak out in all sorts of ways including about particular people especially in the context of political fights among elected officials So they were skeptical that there is really a sharp divide between censure and ordinary government speech Again at least when it comes to speech about government officials And the other concern that they had is just there's a pretty long-standing tradition of government bodies being able to center their own members Houses of Congress are entitled to and often do censure their own members And sometimes they do so for the members speech and the justices care a lot about tradition Occasionally they do invalidate long-standing traditions but they're quite hesitant to do so Both liberal justice Sonia Sotomayor and conservative justice Samuel Alito said this was an easy case on censure Does that tell you where the court is going Yeah it sounded from the argument because the justices would reverse the 5th circuit and say that this kind of political censure is basically immune from First Amendment scrutiny The interesting question is how broad the opinion will be So for example you can imagine an opinion that says well any kind of center is just government speech in the government is entitled to say where to want That would suggest that the bar could censure a lawyer simply because it doesn't like his politics or that the government is employer let's say university could formally censure a faculty member for the faculty members of research let's say That would be quite a broad ruling and might unduly interfere with First Amendment rights in some situations because in many contexts the law does recognize that censure formal reprimand is a form of disciplinary action kind of a form of employment action that's not quite the same of course as firing or demotion but that's in that same category Or it could decide in a narrower theory which is simply that this is a form of government speech that has long been recognized as within government power precisely because its politicians who are fighting it out with each other and all of them have political power And as a result it should be left to the political process Thanks Eugene That's professor Eugene valak of UCLA law school Coming up next the Supreme Court signals it will strike down New York's gun control law I'm June grosso and you're listening to Bloomberg When posts.

"Concerned a topic that I think at one level every American agrees is troubling that extreme partisan gerrymandering has not been good for the country I don't think there's a single citizen out there that thinks we need more of it So we all agree that it's something that is hurting democracy or civil discourse well once the U.S. bankrupt puts up a stop sign in rude Jones says the fortune demand doesn't have a role to play here those who have lost those cases They have two options option a embrace unhappiness an option B go to the state courts and it turns out in that area people have successfully gone to state court You have decisions by the Pennsylvania North Carolina and Florida court systems that have recognized claims in that exact area under their stay constitutions and there's also the recourse of going to the state legislature for a compromise and in some cases going to amendments to state constitutions to try to limit extreme partisan gerrymandering So I see state constitutions as having two roles here One they're very good news for the individual that loses that the U.S. Supreme Court when it comes to challenging a state or local law It gives you a second shot of second chance at victory and then I see them as potentially really helpful when it comes to the very difficult job U.S. Supreme Court Justices have in identifying you federal constitutional rights Particularly on enumerated rights or subsequent due process where that's just not a lot to go on in the U.S. Constitution and the states can be very helpful resources when it comes to the meaning of these guarantees because they all originated there in the state constitutions And they can be helpful for those justices that account for shifting norms in society You have to look for evidence of those shifting norms outside the judge You have to look forward out in society Society some objective place and state legislature state courts and state constitutions can be really terrific evidence of shifting norms in society Thanks so much for being in the Bloomberg law show Judd Sutton That's judge Jeffrey Sutton His new book is entitled Who decides states has laboratories of constitutional experimentation And that's it for this edition of the Bloomberg law show Remember you can always get the latest legal news on our Bloomberg wall podcast You can find them on Apple podcasts Spotify in it WWW dot Bloomberg dot com slash podcast slash law I'm June grosso and you're listening.
