Walter E. Williams: Conservative Economist on Black Issues
"There's two. Great free market economists. Walter williams was one and thomas. Seoul was the other and i think i remember. I forget if whether it was walter. Williams i think it was thomas. Soul who mentioned on an interview that when he spoke to walter williams they joked that they should never both fly on the same aeroplane because if that happened and the plane went down the only two black conservative economists would be gone and so that would be too big a tragedy so to make sure that didn't happen. They should never both fly on the same mayor plane. But both of those guys. One of the things that i think was so special about them is that because they happen to be black and these guys were great economists regardless of their race but what made them so special is being black and saying the things that they did right. It made it much harder for people to attack them as being racist right. Because both these guys. Walter williams and thomas soul are staunch opponents of the welfare state of the great society war on poverty programs of these anti-discrimination laws. They don't like any of them and they do an excellent job of explaining why these laws why these well-intentioned laws are so counterproductive. Now of course if a white guy were to make the exact same statements. While you're racist right well you take that weapon away. If the guy who's making those statements happen to be black. How are you going to say that. That person's a racist. Now i know sometimes they say all. They're an uncle tom. But maybe that doesn't have as strong a connotation as as as being labeled a racist was very important to have these guys out there and have them as role models right so younger. African americans could look up to these guys. You know what yeah. They're not all left wing there on all a bunch of socialists. Here's some african. Americans that are free market. Libertarians steadier out there defending individual liberty and the constitution. That are objecting to all of this. You know race baiting and poverty pimps and everything that the left is doing that whole agenda these guys walter williams and thomas soul were excellent advocates for the opposite for the free market and and they did a good job of exposing the hypocrisy and the fallacies of of the left.

"Speech days after the election, Joe Biden think black voters for helping him win the White House. The African American community stood up again. For many with always having my back on, I'll have yours. Now. There's some concern that Biden isn't making good on that promise. At least seven civil rights groups are pressing to meet with the president elect, including the end of the P and the National Urban League. They want Biden to name or black leaders to top jobs in his administration. Marc Morial leads the Urban League mark. Welcome. Hey, it's great to be with you. Thank you for having me. My pleasure. And if and when you get a meeting with the President elect, what will you tell him? So importantly way look forward to a direct communication with the president elect, and we're gonna reaffirm our interest on behalf of the community that the number of Diverse cabinet members, particularly African Americans. Prominent and every level of the body Administration Cabinet sub cabinet. As well as at the White House. You know, we want to give the president elect due credit. He chose an excellent running mate, Senator Harris. He's made an important appointment of Cecilia Rouse, his chair of the president's Council of Economic Advisors, and Linda Thomas Greenfield as U. N ambassador. But we're heavily focused. What's known as a statutory Cabinet, defense and justice and transportation and commerce and labor and hot and education and HHS, For example, that is where The important levers of power are We're going to communicate that to him, and the second thing will be communicating. Eyes our interest in the public policy arena. We need aggressive enforcement of civil rights laws. We need strong investments through both stimulus. And infrastructure plans, and we need Focus on long term issues of racial justice, criminal justice reform, police justice reform just to name a few high priorities and finally With respect to cove it we need to ensure That the vaccine is safe and effective for all people and that there is a community based distribution system. To ensure that people in our community have access to the vaccine. I guess What I'm trying to understand is if you are actually concerned with what you've seen so far, or if you're just trying to get ahead of the process, As you point out, there have been many black officials appointed to keep jobs in the Biden administration says they're not done yet. Yeah, I think it's both. And I think it's uh they've been to statutory Cabinet nominees thus far. Treasury Three rather Treasury homeland security as well as the State Department, and that's important and we do have a concern and we do want to get ahead of the process and We want to be clear that we're looking for a cabinet. When it comes to African Americans and meets but really exceeds the high water marks of the Clinton and Obama cabinets. This is a different time. And the president elect is made of important public commitment to racial justice, and I believe he's serious about that, but toe execute that He's got to have people who have lived experiences. As well as professional qualifications, along with connections to the communities that have borne the brunt of the country's systemic racial injustice. Look, there's no doubt having a diversity of opinions from all walks of life is critical in any leadership role, but make the case why Race matters so much here. Ben Carson. I'm thinking of Ben Carson, a black housing secretary. I assume you don't agree at all with his policies on many black leaders At the same time, we're saying that outgoing Senator Doug Jones, a white man would make a great attorney general because of his record fighting for civil rights. So let me say this. Van Carson is a great doctor. I never thought Ben Carson was qualified. To be secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development. I thought he would have made made a great surgeon general. You made a great secretary of health. Human services. I think it was an example of picking a quote unquote black person and putting him in what some perceive to be a black position at the Department of Housing and Urban Development. And I think it was It was a mistake, and I think it was a disservice to Ben Carson. So I mean, it's important. Understand this is not just about a black face in a certain place.

People are trying to figure out how to be energy independent to avoid unexpected power. Shut offs and use greener energy for some. It's as easy as drilling a hole. Geothermal energy systems let people heat and cool their homes using energy from the earth. The technology has been around for decades. It's incredibly efficient but fewer than one percent of homes in the us. Use it now. One startup wants to do for geothermal heating what tesla did for the electric car make it cool marketplace tech producers. Stephanie hughes has more when you're used to digging for gold and alaska it's a change in mindset to start working in suburban backyards us is all residential.

Musk predicts full autonomy from 2021
"All right so getting into the must interview. This was earlier today. Yulon was accepting the axel award the fifth person to win this award so we sat down for about a thirty minute. Chat or so with axel springer's see up overall. I thought it was a really good interview. I'll put the link in the show notes. A lot of stuff that we have heard before of course but some interesting new insights as well from you on. I think the biggest headline will probably be comments around. Autonomous driving axles springer. Ceo asked quote win. Is thomas driving really really going to happen. And quote and john said quote. I'm extremely confident of achieving full autonomy and releasing it to the tesla customer base next year. And so of course. We've heard comments like this from the past. And we also have this sort of convolution going on between full autonomy and tesla's full self-driving option as oftentimes ilan will talk with that as a frame of reference and talk about win. That option will be feature complete which is not necessarily full autonomy so the actual springer co did a great job here of clarifying that point saying level five relief full autonomy and eline replied. Yes yes and quote so just to clarify what that means that five is defined as the vehicle being incomplete control and it can handle all circumstances conditions that a human driver could reasonably handle so essentially full autonomy. If we step down the levels level four is basically the same except it is only in certain locations or in certain circumstances so you can think of something that is geo fenced or maybe only works during the daytime or when. It's not raining something like that. But if all those conditions are met it can be fully autonomous. It doesn't even need deva pedal or steering wheel and again. The vehicle has full control and responsibility stepping down to level three. This is the middle ground. Where under certain conditions within the drive the car may be able to take over but when those conditions are no longer the case. The car needs to alert the driver to be ready to take over with a reasonable warning period. So good example there is. Maybe it's highway only where you don't really need to pay attention. There's no nag but as your your exit. Maybe the cartels you. Hey and ten seconds you need to be ready to take over control so to go from level to where the driver is info control but has sort of assistance features to go to level. Three is really a big significant step and even with the full. Self-driving beta test tesla has not taken that step quite yet but of course. That's what they hope to be able to collect data four to be able to prove that eventually the system can go ahead and confidently have control needing that driver monitoring if that happens on some portions of the drive. Tesla ben is able to step up to level three. If tesla's confident that that can happen for all portions of some drives that step to four and if it can take over every drive all the time that's level five so ilan feel confident that they can eventually get to level. Five yuan here is saying that that will happen next year again. That would be quite a step up. From where tesla is today as for regulations allowing something like this. You llamas competent that at least some jurisdictions will allow that next year and from my limited research on this. I'm pretty sure many states already do think florida is a great example where fully autonomous vehicles are already permitted and ready to go where nothing would need to change in the regulations to allow a level five operation of course many other areas could be more strict and the regulation. And it'll sort of get phased in. I think over time if this is able to be achieved

How To Know You've Found The Right Real Estate Broker
"We want to ask you about someone who has been very valuable to you your most valuable player on your team and has really helped you grow and scale your real estate business. Who was that. Mvp big awards go up to our real estate broker in upstate new york. He has been by far the best asset for us in our real estate journey. He's helped define insurance. People seldom find attorneys inspectors Properties handyman any questions that we have in the area because he's in the area. He has always been helpful finding appliances. Anything we asked we ask him first. And then we'll do our research. I want to ask thomas. If i'm a new investor and i'm reaching out to this broker for the first time what does that. What does that dialogue like. How did you get this burger to take you seriously and show you around town and take you all these different properties. What do i say. I told him that. We're a general contractor. In new york city were interested in buying some properties in the area. We have no idea what we're doing and we're looking for someone said it's join our team in and kind of guide us through the process and if you're a good real estate broker or you're good in the position of what you do. I think that you should be open to educating whoever you're working with so he was very open in showing us as properties in song. Hey this is selling for two hundred thousand. You can fix it up for x. amount of dollars in make another fifty thousand dollars in equity or whatever the case is you have to be mindful of crew. You're dealing with so someone like me. If i see a beam falling down on her property took another construction projects for me. You know what i mean. If someone who doesn't have the construction experience me walk away from that deal which is totally fine. You don't you may need a turkey property in your case but you have to go within in your comfort left so when a lot of people have told us that when they research you know a team out of state or long distance they call you know ten to twenty people. Think you just got lucky that you know the first person you pull google. What are some things that drew you into him. They said he educated you but what would have been some things that turns you off have went down to call the next person on the list for us. We recall the first person on list. We had a phone conversation. Just a quick casual phone conversation and just very welcoming. He was the type of person that was easy to talk to. We felt that we could have a conversation with him. We felt that he gave us just on that. First conversation enough information that he would be an asset down the line so you have to have that first conversation because again. It's it's it's about managing your time so if you see that someone's not really they don't send you any properties or they don't really care to have a conversation with you or they're not interesting. Educating you that's not the right person for you need to find someone else. It may take ten twenty thirty brokers down the line. But i'm telling you someone is out there for you to help you guide you in that journey. Yeah i think the only thing i would add onto that thomas and you kind of mentioned it is that don't be afraid to fire people. That aren't working you the right way right like as i was as i was building my out of state investing team. I went through like four or five. Different realtors redmond. Took me a while to find that when the work so for those that are new investors. And sometimes you can feel almost indebted to that first person that helps you. But it's business for both of you and you gotta find someone that works
Buying Property To Rent And Dealing With Rent During Covid
"Assuming with your background that you after something that needed a little bit of work like was this a fixer. Upper was that a bird was at a turnkey like tells about the property so our goal is buying hold so we're looking for properties but we're not looking for something that it's it's in really really bad condition. Just because the properties are an hour and forty minutes away from where we live in where we operate our construction business so we are buying properties. That do need some work. but we're focusing on properties. The rents are much lower than fair. Market is so our first property the the the rents for the three bedrooms. Twelve hundred dollars each and twelve hundred dollars. We saw an opportunity that that market was able to get a three bedroom. Fifteen hundred dollars and it needed some very minor repairs. So we are focusing on buying properties not really concerned on the purchase price but more on what the value is in the increase in the rents the three properties we have after he fixed the properties. After we get some new tenants in there we can raise the rents to fair market which is thirty percent plus they for this first property you did. What were the rents when he purchased it and then what are the rents now. So they're twelve hundred dollars a piece and we purchase this in in january. Obviously kovin happen so we didn't want him removed the tenants. Because we're all human. I'm not looking to to put someone out of the house right away during covid so we twelve hundred dollars we can increase these after we fix them up to fifteen hundred dollars each so. That's huge because our numbers are just a she around sixteen percent return on our investment for this property and along with all three of our portfolio pieces by you purchase senior ready to raise the rents and i know cove it kinda through this for you but what process do take to do that because a lot of people are you know. They don't wanna raise the rent especially by that much to these people. Do give them the option of moving out or raising the rent. Do send them a letter. You talk to them in person. How do you go about approaching that we try and take it on a human level like we we understand that covert going on. We understand that we're not looking to pull people out on the street. We tell them that we are. We bought this property looking to to raise the rents we give them the required thirty day sixty as ninety days notice like hey you can stay but you have to pay the increased rants and we're not going to do without fixing your apartment because obviously when we're trying to bring it up. The fair market value in terms of the rentals are also bringing up the conditions of the space to be a fair market value. And just so. Everyone knows in new york state when he mentioned the thirty sixty or ninety days. He's not saying that did that. It depends on the tenant you if he's gonna give them thirty sixty or ninety. It actually depends on how long they've lived in the property. How much notice you have to give them so the longer they've lived there you might have to give them ninety days notice on the rent increase

"Of course was the attorney general under President Reagan and a senior legal fellow at the center, which is part of the Institute for Constitutional. Government at our beloved Heritage Foundation, which they're building isn't as cool as the CATO building, but it's a great organization nevertheless. Thomas Gyping is our guest and that's what we're going to talk about. So I Thomas what exactly for the layperson that didn't go to law school as you did, what is court packing? Well I think it's important. For people to know that. Court packing. Didn't just get invented. The phrase and where it comes from. is actually quite all this is not the first time around this block. What it refers to is. increasing the size of a court particularly the Supreme Court by creating more positions. So that, you can then those positions with justices who you think will rule a particular way on issues that you care about. So it's changing the institution itself. this is very different from the ordinary job that the president and the Senate have of filling vacancies when judges choose to retire that happens all the time. Across the judiciary not just the Supreme Court? congress decides How many judges how many judgeships are on each court how they're distributed? You know that kind of thing. The ones that set and and Congress determines the right number. Basically, by the the needs of the court, like the case loads that a court has and and how many judges do they need to do the job right. So. That's what. That's what happens in the ordinary course of. The way our system of government works sometimes though you know a president Doesn't like what the Supreme Court is doing. and. They WANNA be able to fill vacancies with judges who will do things differently. That's natural. Question is what are they gonNA do about it well. Nineteen Thirties. President Franklin Roosevelt got elected in nineteen thirty two and he promised that the federal government was gonNA. Bring us out of the Great Depression. That was going to require a lot of authority by Congress over the economy. And they started passing this new deal legislation but the Supreme Court kept striking it down. They said, the federal government doesn't have that much authority over the constitution. Roosevelt gets reelected in a landslide nineteen, thirty six and he says, well, why don't we pass legislation to expand the Supreme Court his Bill that he wanted to pursue would've added up to six more justices up to fifteen total. That way he could appoint judges who would uphold his new deal legislation. Well. His Own Democrats in Congress I worked in the Senate for fifteen years before I came to the Heritage Foundation on the Senate Judiciary Committee and In recent years, you know the majority party has maybe less a two three four vote margin. Well, in Franklin Roosevelt's second term, the Senate was divided seventy eight to sixteen Democrats. You know essentially ruled the roost but it was his Democrats who said, no, we can't do it that way we can't just because you don't like what the Supreme Court is doing. You can't try to create a new Supreme Court. You can't try to add justices not because the court needs them not because the case load is overwhelming or something like that. It's only because you want to manipulate the court to get the decisions that you want. And that's going to destroy the independence of the courts..

"Now there's a lot going on in this lot going on now even this early on a lot of people didn't know what Jesus was because it's not like today were you know there's books everywhere and you can go online and Google somebody from? Any era and get information on them and so you know personal knowledge of of a person might mean last I. Don't know generation to and even if this is written in the first century, you're still talking or five generations since Jesus have been around if he was around, I have no idea and I This is one of those things where to me doesn't matter if Jesus was a real person or not. If you want to believe he is called if you want to believe is not cool. To me, the person is relevant. What's what's important is the teachings and knowledge was important not who says it or what they did or didn't do or anything like that? There's a there's a lot of really interesting rabbit holes. You can go down if you want to analyze that. One of the ones that I find really interesting is the idea that the Caesar himself was Jesus at camera the name of the book. If I find that I put in the show notes but I'm sure if you look that up, you can you can find the book it's it's fairly recent from a couple of years ago. And anyways to me. It doesn't matter. But people even here, and of course, now want to know what Jesus is and so they're trying to tell them well me your messenger right message from God. To Matthew you're wise philosopher I'm sure there's a reference to the neoplatonism in those kind of folks which would be contemporaneous to this movement and Thomas said math cannot bear say whom you're like that makes Jesus angry I am not your teacher. Why is that? Because there's no teachers here. There's no teachers Thomas said brother the maybe Jesus got mad because again when you're in a system that.

Believe it's Syriac and the Syriac Word is Tommy Ah. In in the original Air Maic the word for twin is very similar to Tommy I. Don't recall exactly what it is, but that's where you get. The Word Thomas is basically they're called Sky Judas, the twin twin, and that's we have to be careful with some of these translations this one I don't think it's really that important. But that does raise some other interesting things with them because there is a gospel of Judas and that's not actually the same person as this Judas Tom is it seems but but maybe it's kind of an allegory to that because the Gospel of Judas doesn't Paint Judas as kind of the person that betrayed Jesus..

Exactly and that is the nonstick vibe. They're just there's just lots of lots of weird other stuff attributed to Thomas out there and just wanted to just lay the groundwork. Sure if you're interested in checking the guys. Okay. So I also want to rebuke the I did not specifically the do that you mentioned in the episode about who say that Thomas's doubt is bad.

But I think if we villain is Thomas and what has been historically considered his most notable trait, we weren't really like serving the tax properly. So I want to like put it in a different perspective. So let's put are sanctified imagination hats on this. So Thomas Thomas is is he loves Jesus enough that in a few chapters back he's like willing to die for him. He spent the past two or three years being part of his posse, their friends, their family Jesus appears to. All the other disciples except for him that we know of that's like the biggest photo ever we have the story they've seen their friend but for Thomas that's like not viable narrative which I think completely makes sense for him. Jesus is dead or his body was stolen. so He's grieving scared. He's maybe frustrated that his friends of seemingly gone insane and maybe even on another level feels like left out an embittered maybe he's wondering why Jesus hasn't appeared maybe he spent this whole week like. Wondering when Jesus GonNa pop up and so I think it's lovely that Jesus directly addresses him and has intimate moment with him. Jesus..

Okay. So I the gospel of Thomas or the Secret Gospel of Thomas. So it's like the secret sayings of Jesus it was recorded by a person named Judas Thomas. You guys talked about it sounds like he recorded him like with his. Right right. Now it could have been written anywhere between sixty and two hundred and fifty eighty. It's hard to date because we'll talk about this a minute it's not it's a sayings Gospel. It's not a narrative gospel sue is recorded, but we don't win. It was written right? Right exactly. Ca like originally we have copies or whatnot So if it was written after one, hundred, twenty ad, it wouldn't have been eligible canonization simply due to being written after the canonization pro nothing else has been added after one twenty eighty every much. Yeah. Yes. Sure. You get it it was discovered in Egypt. It doesn't directly point to Jesus's divinity, but it also doesn't like not do that. It's just kind of vague It is a sayings Gospel this was a this was a popular way to record famous teachers teachings at the time. So not a biography, not a narrative It's possible throwback to last.

"Of three years with Jesus the disciples were often overwhelmed by their emotions like fear and outrage joy and they were uncomfortable and they were certain and then they. Were uncertain and then they were anxious. It was all kind of weird and wonderful and mostly weird aren't we in the same feelings fight with God you and me we often find ourselves overwhelmed by feelings. We are scared of the diagnosis were angry at the government were excited about the baby or the house or the person for the job, and we're uncomfortable at the dinner table where certain of our next steps. But we're uncertain of how to actually step out in our next steps were anxious were anxious about our own flaws. The flaws of those we love the flaws of flawed world what has been repeatedly telling us this is now your home I'm with you do. Not Worry I bring peace the next time you feel overwhelmed simply reach out pech the hand of the one who's telling you. He is working for your good and believe him. That's really good my so who cares about you know I obviously I think I've talked about this law and the show up. So we talked about this in the episode, but I'm hugely drawn to Thomas because I very much identify with him and the story and his experience of doubt. I'm probably biased because I wrote an entire book about this idea but I'm all about the acceptance normalization of DOUKAS. Sadly, doubt is treated like another kind of expletive in it's rarely engaged with there's this. Weird cultural tension that ideologically speaking everything is all or nothing. It's a lot of if you're not with me, you're against me but this tendency towards absolutism isn't about getting at anything good or positive. It's about being afraid. It's about fear about fear of nuance. It's about being afraid of the things we can't neatly consolidate into easily understandable boxes to that I would say we're required to reject the neat and tidy understands of God because I refuse to believe in a God that can easily understand and quantify Dow wasn't Thomas's singular quality and it can't be hours either because an un- curious faith is just as dangerous as A. Comprehensive cynicism.

There have been like allusions to it, but he's the one he's honest. Wanted to be like I didn't believe now. Do I know you're the guy you're the guy and then Yeah. And then Jesus told him because you've seen me have believed blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed verse thirty Jesus for many other. Okay God. This is maybe the most frustrating thing of red. US for many other signs in the president cycles. which are recorded in this book my man I mean like you couldn't give me a list or something point. Matthew did when he gave us the whole leg. Jews afflicted it to get that. He invented tiktok dances. He punched the tiger. Like all this cool stuff. But no John's like this was enough for you like you should like this verse thirty one. But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah the son of God and by believing you may have life in his name. So I like that this is feels like very final and then he goes on to write more chapter. Away no let's talk a little bit more. Did you want encore? Okay let's do that. So what happen to Thomas? Do we know? Well. There's a lot of none of its confirmable from what I saw like verifiable. I did see the ideas that he went to India and came the apostle of India There's some crazy stories about like the a a royalty figure gave him money to build a house and Thomas give to the poor and was like. I built the house for you and have a man. and. The king was product. Okay you gave. A physical house though, but there's some really cool fun stories. So I saw that the Axel Thomas say that he was martyred in a mild poor India where he was stabbed with spears. Yeah, and then Syrian Christians tradition specifies that he was. Martyred and killed with a spear. Yeah and then there's an early calendar entry that reads Saint Thomas who was pierced with a lance in India. Okay. So he feels like he got. Yeah. Phil. Johnson Lake. John We know will not he will be the one who does not get murder. He gets to live out his days like at a sandals resort. and so it's interesting that resented him for that I? Don't know there's in heaven for that. Can you resent heaven I hope. So I like resentments. You gotta be free of now. I don't. I do I do it's true.

So scared he has probably why was he not there? He might have been like, do you WanNa know I'll tell you. Yeah. Aaron, you don't even show me on this introvert I can tell you. What I seen a minute I've seen a long walk. Okay. Unfair. How except that? Because I kept thinking like they're under immense fear because the thing that they've worked on for three years thinking in the back because as Jewish children who grew up learning about the Messiah. That's what's going to happen, and then the guy that you think's going to be it doesn't do it and blow it out even further. It's not Jesus was the only one who ever said I'm the guy on the side that that moment and before and after was replete with guys me like actually on the Messiah and we're going to do this and like cool and then they die and they never come back. So it's fair to be like, Oh, it was one of those. We got about one like that's our bad. You know that it's not I think A. Lot of times we examined these people from the benefit of hindsight of like twenty twenty. I can't believe but it's like we don't. They didn't have that context. I mean, they did because they had the experience of Jesus. But it's fair to be like you had human moment where you were a little unsure of the stand that made a lot of sense 'cause plus what if he was at his introvert walk in the woods and he ran into somebody in their lake? Hey, it's me Jesus 'cause what if they're truly my guess is there's this whole anticipation that like. 'cause Jesus was really clear about how going to go down.

Thomasson is one of twelve was not with the disciples when Jesus came I twenty five so that others told him we've seen the Lord, but he said to them this Thomas, unless I see the nail marks in his hands, put my finger where the nails were and put my hand and to aside I will not believe. So we have we have. The this is the totality of the Thomas Experience in the New Testament. You know he's obviously doing other things but this is where I feel like we get either fairly unfairly kind of his vibe I think we unfairly okay. So couple of things first of a set up question. So it says now Thomas was not win the deal with the disciples. So he has not Holy Spirit and all these other guys have spirit. Yes. What's that about? Is it like a tag situation or you had to be in the room to get that right see when he walks in the Holy Spirit like, Oh, just take a deep breath Y- you're here now here. So I'm very curious about we we're is the Holy Spirit does Thomas ever get you have to wait 'til pentecost sure. What happens to Thomas in the situation Erin dummy does he breathe in an era? It's going to be like do not know I don't care no one tears. The spirit, these other guys are like because I feel like the Holy Spirit will bring a chill vibe because it's free fruits are peace patience kindness gentleness self control. Yes and now Thomas is going to be like still freaking the freak out. And plus what we know. Okay. So contacts, we know from Luke Luke, which does not talk about this Thomas Experience, but he talks about right before this that I think it's in Luke twenty four that he says when they got back from the May told all these things to the eleventh. These are the women right and they They told all who told this to the apostles we've seen Jesus and it says, but they did not believe. The women because there were seemed like nonsense. Okay. So it's not just Thomas who doesn't believe it's other people in the room and also the disciples who were freaking the freak out in the room. Right? There's a gre- of disbelief there at everything that has been told in like four told them and they knew this was coming. They're still not knowing how to conduct. That's right and that's why I think when it gets there and it's like. What what what what what and I think there are other gathering like, yeah. Yeah. We we same. We didn't get to see like it did seem like that ghost we saw in the water when the the story Peter While Lady Ghost. Yeah, she knows.

So a lot of things happen he's breathing on them and we're talking about the Holy Spirit.

So a lot of it and specifically this showcasing of Thomas like he's the guy not with the other two or with the other disciples and he's the one who doubts. It's kind of like very passive aggressive like that at odds because I like obviously like the Gospel John But this is my boy here. So I don't like what you do into my boy. And I think we're GonNa see that as we read in this passage, you know for me I am John's book was written later than I think all the goths thinks and I think that's why you find the eighty percent of what you will find in the book of John is only covered by him right? because. I think I also think John is in an era in for he was like, Oh, we go do a different like I'm not going to be like I'm not going to steal from mark like those other dudes I'm GonNa like write my own thing. So. We'll see. So in the season, we're skipping around a bit because sometimes Jesus will be alive and sometimes he will be dead but we're not telling Jesus a story. We're telling the stories of his followers we're not doing this chronologically. So, guess what Jesus is dead he had been arrested tried and sentenced to death and about what felt like eight days he's been buried. His followers are super sad there also in hiding because they're scared for their own lives But one of them, Mary Magdalene a lady goes to his team finds an empty and she likes the freak out and then she goes and tells Peter and John and Dave themselves freak the freak out and they head back to their disciples safe house and they wait will marry mags and some other ladies show up and are like you guys guess we saw walking around cash in the street and they're like who? Jesus H Christ You believe that and that is where we pick up our story today I like it I like it. Okay. So and then before I encourage people if you wanna read really thoughtful stuff about the Gospel John About maybe if you want to go into the Secret Gospel Thomas Elaine Pale, she hasn't some really good stuff but I think think about it in the context. Specifically, this passage but like the the book of John You know what Elaine Pagel socks about is Thomas's Gospel is a lot I think if we read say it'd be like new agey we feel like that and a lot of is like there's a divine light that exists with all within all of us..

"He's gotten a really bad rap that could be that he might be the guy in heavily been like it was one time. You dare doubt it to you. Peter. Do some stuff to if you remember you know I. I. was looking up S- about Thomas and I saw something when I was researching and obviously dates are dates at this point. So her nose but I submit kind of made the hair on my next stand up and it was the date that they believe he might have died was the year seventy two that's pretty common. The date December twenty first, which is my birthday. So. Just, one of those weird things like we'll have feels weird you know just like a weirdly specific moment that revolves around me that in no way means anything but feels like it means something I mean. It means something kind of weird. So in casting Thomas I, I was really thinking about this and then this is your number one. This is a big and I thought I wanna I wanNA capture someone I'm going to pick the right person but then I thought I I don't want to cast this person as much as I just want to say who have always visualized Thomas. Because thing about the Bible avoid you know when I think about storage probably must be like this. You have the person you think of, and sometimes it's moves does not or celebrities or whatever So I, think in capturing this person, what was happening to was I want someone who seems intelligent I want them to seem a little standoffish and withdrawn and I think maybe you could argue that they come. Off a little snooty okay. With the idea and this might not be the most fair characterization but I think it is a characterization. We will contend with the with the idea being that like they everything can be explained or understood right that wanting and requiring verifications somebody that always will start off with well, actually exactly the well actually got. Okay. So for that reason, I will be casting Philip Seymour Hoffman..

"Your host Koi Johnny's always wanted to put her fingers or the nails worst even golden. Sound I. Don't mean a weird. that. Okay here's the deal, the Bible Bench, the show retake stories from the Bible and we recap them as though they were maybe book for its mission. Now, we say movie booker TV show because that's what we usually do on our other show about pop culture, the podcast with Knox and Jamie where we talk about popular culture sacrilege every Wednesday, and before we begin, we just want to be clear that the Bible. Has No agenda The show as a meant to be evangelical for cereal, which thing to the Bible has some super dope stories I wanNA talk more about them and voice that as more every man or every woman, the conversation will take place sodas meant to be more casual, not a disrespect but in an effort to better understand the story tenth season of the Bible Bench is all about that rag tag group.

I've been waiting a long time for this episode. This is your this. Would you argue that this is your favorite one like your top five favorite characters in the Bible number one number one of men you know Jesus obviously Jesus. But like of mortal men, that's my guy and right before we hit record you said we'll never talk about Thomas again so like Well he'd just seized us not mentioned a lot in the Bible. Sorry. This. Is his moment to shine hard the deal I. Guess. Okay. So in this story, we obviously have two primary characters that we're dealing with. We have. Jesus who of course, as you know, we do not cast out of respect for ourselves. And then Thomas, we have Thomas he mentioned eight times in the New Testament which could sound like a lot of those times are just GonNa, list of names of people who are disciple. So He is one of the twelve main disciples of Jesus. He might be a fisherman we don't really know job he just in one of those other for mentions it's like he went fishing with the fishermen. So been recreational kind of information we don't know we don't know. His name. Let's talk about Thomas's name which is very complicated. Now, we as a group of people have decided his name was Thomas but here's the problem..

"Some new poll. Whatever the the the fan and I was just like like I feel like he don't get enough credit for a lot of this stuff. You know what I'm saying. A lot of moves and stuff. You know what I'm saying. Drafting Stoudamire camp Boys OVER THERE. We know even the guys that he you know that you gave. Did you sign to deals from from Indiana to the Knicks? All of the moves. I feel like what made you be able to see and ignore that and say I don't care what they saying was being said about him. Uc what you saw. You did what you did. I always approached the traff asking this question. Can this person play in a championship game and win? And what is his his mental makeup in every trade that I made. It's like okay. Not Can he play in the NBA? Not How many points can this guy perform under pressure? If we in a pressure situation can follow game plan can execute and can we win a championship with them? And if you look at all the players that I've drafted and some of the players that I've traded for they even hall of fame right now. They've been named NBA. All Stars and have won championships or been six men of the year so on teen that that we had in New York. We had six people off the team when NBA Championships. Maliki was on that team went. Nba Championship David Lee One. Nba Championship. Channing Frye one. Nba Championship Edie Carey was on NBA championship team. Jamal was you know sixth man of the year forever. The trophy will probably be named after six. Guard Wilson. As you said. It's still playing everyone that that we had at tied inge as record in play also points in the order as the fourth string guy and and we had all this talent in everybody was was so young and maturing and growing now you know the narrative in New York and I don't know how this got started where they said. Well you treated all the draft picks. I never treat any rapid as a matter of fact one year I had three first round picks if you go back and you look at what I actually did or we forget the name. Trevor Reason I in terms of And I'm sure there's somebody else that I MISS. You know as a champion so if there's somebody else that was on that team. I Miss I apologize. But there's only the trade that that I still think today is so misunderstood. People you know have have wrote so fictitious fictitiously. Just bad about was the eddy curry trait. I mean the Eddy. Curry A to me was eddy. Curry and Wilson Chandler for tyrus Thomas and tyrus Thomas at that time was I think he was the second pick in the draft. And I let that tyrus and no offense tyrus but I just said I I got David Lee and I got channing. Frye so I'm good. I'm good at the power forward spot. I don't need another power forward in the three power forwards. At that time they were coming out was aldridge. Tyrus Thomas and joking Noah when I looked at channing in David I said Okay. These two guys are capable in my opinion and this was my criteria my criteria is. Can you win a championship? Not Can you plan the NBA and score some points and make some money? Can You win the championship? I looked at David Lee. And I looked at channing. Frye and I say these two guys planned championship teams and win. So I'm good within right and I think when you look back in history has proven US correct that Wilson Chandler Eddy Curry for tyrus. Thomas was a damn good trade. Tom Remember this. I first PRESEASON GAME. It was a first or second. Preseason Game Coaching the Indiana Pacers who we had a whip in Indiana and if very win fire me I. He'll say today we do. I would have won a championship with that team. Great that's one of my favorite teams too. But we played at Indiana state and my first Sakti was dunk on. Somebody was against Jermaine O'Neal in the state and I don't don't like bodies or by title dealt with and I yield.
"thomas" Discussed on The Brink
"She's been hitting the drink twice as hard now we're going to finish finish up and talk about the precipitous. Drop off the brink that Thomas Cook went through and it was. This was something that happened so so suddenly that it took a lot of people by complete surprise even even people who had said Yeah. I knew that they weren't doing well. Financially were shocked at how fast this unravel rabble. Will you never think that. Somebody's just gonNA close overnight when they've got tons of people whole around the globe so how he got there in two thousand seven like we said before the break lake they had more brick and mortar locations than any other travel retailer right but the travel industry as a whole was shifting online online so quickly that that was not an asset it was actually a liability. Yes because I was all that overhead so much overhead unlike an airplane with very little overhead smashes. It's all all underfoot in two thousand eleven. The company sought out one hundred and twenty five million dollars dollars or pounds. I believe dollars Zia. Every report I saw was posted in a news journal so I just assumed that that means we're talking dollars hundred twenty five million whether it's dollars or pounds is a lot of money whole Lotta money. And they did this to tide over their cash shortage. Yes so this was like A. They're in a real serious cash crunch that they just didn't have the money to keep operations two billion dollars in debt. Yeah so this. This was essentially the keep the lights on and be able to pay their their staff. Keep in mind their staff. It's not just travel agents. We're talking about flight crews. We're talking about you know paying for the fuel for your aircraft. There's tons of things that are part of this Gargantuan business at this point and it's it's mind in boggling it. The next year the company announced it was going to restructure and in the process close two hundred of its stores and in two thousand thirteen. The company announced is that it was going to streamline by merging their airlines in Belgium Scandinavia the United Kingdom and Germany into a single division and in two thousand fifteen they a announced a strategic partnership with Chinese Investment Group called Foshan international which looked like it might have been a saving grace book like it. Looks like it wasn't the first half of two thousand eighteen. The company was seeing a huge drop off in customers. Yes and the reasons for this are are multiple like there's no one caused we can point to and say this is why people travelled less. They're actually quite a few view. Different reasons that contributed in some way shape or form for example. You probably heard if you if you're not in the UK you've definitely heard heard about if you're in the UK you're living it which `sorry the brexit process right so brexit out. Some people have argued has discouraged a a lot of travel so a lot of people not knowing what was going to be in store for them you know financially or legally just to move in and amount of countries in the EU for example they held off on holiday plans so that was one argument. Another was that in two thousand eighteen gene the UK had an unusually warm winter and in the UK. Winter is when a lot of Brits fly away to get someplace that ain't so gosh dern Dang cold and damp and grey. I one of the coldest winters I ever spent was a June in the UK. Jin Yeah. That's how cold it can get there. Wow no I was in Scotland the northern regions of Scotland and it got chilly at night. No but but yeah I. It's it's I mean I I always think about when I go to Orlando like if I go to Orlando in the summer Summer Months I see one type of Tourists all over the place but if I go in the winter months it's almost All Brits Yeah and then there are also reports of management being unconservative with their pay. Yeah no there were a lot of stories about the the top levels of management at Thomas Cook we're having some of the most Exorbitant like executive salaries and benefits. So there was a lot of stories is about the mismanagement staying that people were were overpaid for their positions. At least that was the perception. I'm not sure if that was the reality. And these these factors were compounded by the fact that by May Have Twenty nineteen hoteling gas costs. were up and that was making travel even more expensive which was cutting into the profit margin for these packages they were offering because they couldn't have the packages go up too much or people wouldn't buy them but they couldn't wouldn't have it hold at the lower levels because then they would be losing money on the deal. He's acts put them in a rough place yet. July Twenty Nineteen Thomas is cook. Group received an initial offer from sin to be purchased yet again again so the that was something that the company was considering by August. Two Thousand Nineteen. They entered into a rescue package. which would give Tourism Control of the Thomas Cook Group tours tours and vacations. That would give Thomas Cook Airlines to creditors and bondholders and this package was nine hundred million pounds. So this little like this might be able to keep the company going for that just under a billion pounds amount. But it wasn't no because another punch was right around the corner. Yeah just a month later. Creditors are demanding an additional two hundred million pounds in funding. They were worried that two thousand nineteen The winter of two thousand nine hundred two thousand twenty was going to be a repeat of two thousand eighteen which we live in the south. And it's been a very hot September October ninety seven degrees degrees and October fourth. When we record this so not completely unfounded but that meant that the additional two two hundred million was beyond what I was willing to to negotiate and the deal essentially fell through and it by falling through the company crumbled? Yes they went into immediately predation. This one hundred and seventy eight year old company closed its doors overnight and the big part of the problem that you've probably heard about if you've been paying attention to the news regarding Thomas. Cook is that more than half a million people were. We're on a Thomas Cook vacation while this happened Collie and you're talking about immediately ceasing operations. Which means that airline airline doesn't exist anymore which meant thousands of people no longer had a way home? You had folks who are trapped all over the place and this is when in the UK government had to look into how to fix this for at least the UK citizens. Now keep in mind. There was like six hundred thousand. People were on vacation nation only ballot. I say only still huge number of people about one hundred sixty thousand of those were British citizens and everybody else's candidacy plum out of luck You at least for this particular solution and that solution was that the United Kingdom Civil Aviation Authority would start a repatriation peacetime program. Called operation. Matterhorn man. I guess it takes some of the sting out that you're gonna a half to depend upon your home country's government to get you back home if you're told that it's part of Operation Matterhorn. Eating a fun Disney ride. I mean at least it gives gives it something like romantic as opposed to get me the hell home does give you something pleasant sounding. Tell your grandchildren. Yeah and It was funny because I was actually reading news articles written about this whole experience and for some people it was very it was. It was frustrating trading stressful It was confusing and perplexing but for some people they got an unexpected a crazy upgrade to their experience because the CIA was chartering flights from pretty much any available airline that had aircraft craft and some of them were luxury airlines. Joe Order flights hard nicer and the these were. I mean these were like commercial jets these ed but in some cases they were commercial jets. They're meant for luxury flights. Where you might end up in a luxury suite type situation that normally would cost you? Thousands sounds and thousands of dollars but because it was the government that was kinda coming in and swooping it up. You didn't have any extra cost. It was them trying to get you home. I I hope that the people who found themselves in that situation would be able to enjoy the unexpected benefit through all the stress well and a lot of them also expressed a deep sense of empathy for the crew and the staff of Thomas. Cook there the over and over. I read reports about how they wanted to make it clear that they were not blaming. Any of the people who worked there for what was happening wasn't their fault right but that it was and there were also reports that talked about how the flight crews Thomas Cook flight crews new.
