"Things going on that year. But it nonetheless is pretty, as a big surprise for this 8 year project that I've been planning. It may be appreciate just how much all those trips that I was able to take meant to me and just how amazing enriching travel can be. When you go out there and you meet other people and you see other things and all the wonderful benefits you get from travel. And including a chance to kind of think more about your own life and your own culture, where you live, you know, start contrasting and say, oh, they don't do it this way. But to find things that you'd like better about how you do things back at home. Because it's always great to go on a wonderful trip and then come back and say, well, I like it where I am too. So yeah, it's certainly made me and probably many people around the world just appreciate the chance that the value of all those trips we've taken and make us eager to get back out on the road again. You know in your book that you've read about and admired Jefferson for a very long time, but it made you think about him differently when you walked in his steps in one aspect and that was as a slave owner because the forced labor of enslaved people made it possible for him to do this. And this gets to the heart of one of the major contradictions about Jefferson that he was a slave owner on the one hand who purchased up to 600 slaves of man committed less than ten. Yet at the same time, wrote one of the most important democratic documents in history. He supported the northwest ordinance of 1784 that made new states several new states free and in some ways funds the deposit that is later withdrawal by later abolitionists and civil rights activists and if the language and the legal structures of equality weren't baked into the American legal documents, then it wouldn't have been possible. And there might be some listeners who are rolling their eyes, maybe they've just really caught up in all the culture war things about Jefferson, they'll read headlines like in 2016, I think was the president of UVA, was criticized for quoting Jefferson. There have been calls to take down statues of him, have schools, names change their named after Jefferson. So some would say, well, you're not doing anything whatsoever to even understand him in his times, but you get into all this. I mean, you know the contradictions well, so you're not being glib by any means in your analysis of him. But as someone who has studied deeply his life and admires him, but also understands these challenges and can place them in an 18th century context. Could you describe this and what you experienced when you were traveling? Yeah, I did grow up here in Virginia, a huge admirer of him. I just loved him as his renaissance man qualities, the kind of founder who could do everything, the smart guy, founder, so much to him, and writing the Declaration of Independence, you know, all so much that I found worthy of inspiration. And I think when I started to travel in his footsteps, I didn't think slavery would be a particularly big theme that I was going to grapple with.

"Long trips outside Paris, one was to the South of France and Italy for about three and a half months, one was a couple of months in England with John Adams, and one was to the Netherlands, also with John Adams to do to work on diplomatic matters, but then to do sightseeing and travel and learning. And it was in 1788 towards the end of Jefferson's stay there in Paris when two young Americans showed up at his doorstep. These were sons of two acquaintances of his to politicians back home, and they were doing a grand tour of Europe and who better to ask for travel advice than the American ambassador. Jefferson, who had been there for four years and obviously this brilliant guy. And Jefferson being Jefferson, you know, he's kind of the ultimate overachiever. He didn't just like scribble down a few places. Oh, go over here, and this is a good hotel. Instead, he wrote this long travel guide for them. In fact, it was a letter. He didn't publish it as a book. But it's certainly long enough and detailed enough that it can serve as a travel guide and he told them where to go and what to do. And it was a very serious minded guide because you know Jefferson was a pretty serious guy. So he set out 8 what he called objects of an attention of attention for an American. And as you mentioned earlier, Scott, this was a difficult time in our nation's history. We had just gotten out of the revolution, the economy was in a shambles. The republic wasn't really firmly established. And Jefferson thought that America needed new ideas. And he wanted these young men to come back, of course, young, wealthy white men were going to be the leaders of the country at the time. He wanted them to come back with ideas on things that could improve America. So one was agriculture. Especially in the south, but it was a very agricultural country. So he wanted them to observe, are there new plants that do crops that can be introduced animals for livestock that could

"Just a bunch of names and dates and facts. It's the collection of all the stories throughout human history that explain how and why we got here. Welcome to the history unplug podcast where we look at the forgotten, neglected, strange and even counterfactual stories that made our world what it is. I'm your host, Scott rank. In 1784, Thomas Jefferson was a broken man. He was reeling from the loss of his wife, and humiliated from a political scandal during the Revolutionary War, in which he had to flee for his life for Monticello. So he needed to remake himself. And to do that, he traveled. Going throughout Europe, Jefferson saw and learned as much as he could, ultimately bringing his knowledge home to a young America. He ordered a travel guide called hints to Americans traveling in Europe. Jefferson wrote the book to educate the infant nation on cutting edge techniques and agriculture and architecture included sketches of buildings with Roman domes and columns, which he thought should be incorporated into the nation's buildings to celebrate Rome, one of history's greatest democracies in the ancient world. But he also indulged in European luxury and spent a fortune on wine. Ivory handled knives, porcelain statuettes, and strangely enough in Oregon, which he wanted to use to teach birds to sing specific socks. More than 200 years later, today's guest, Derek Baxter, a devotee of American history, decided to follow in his footsteps and see what he could learn from the founding father. Doctor is the author of the new book in pursuit of Jefferson. He stumbled on Jefferson's travelogue and used it as a road map embarking on new journey following him to the same French wineries and rivers, even eating period accurate food, Monticello. His goal was to find out how to make sense of Jefferson and the multitude of contradictions in his life. Most famously that he was a slaveholder, yet authored one of the most important testaments to freedom and push for abolitionism significantly in his early career. This is a good exploration at the multitudes of Jefferson's life, how he's had incredible impact on the United States. He arguably introduced pasta, but also pushed for neoclassicism and that says nothing about all the impact he had on constitutional law is negative aspects to and how they're bundled up in such an intelligent complex figure. Hope you enjoyed this discussion with Derek Baxter. When you followed in the steps of Thomas Jefferson in Europe, what surprised you most about the way that he traveled. And by asking that, I'm thinking specifically about the expenses that he lists in his travel log, the wine that he imports, he has ivory handle daggers, and most interestingly, an organ
Where Was Separation of Church and State During COVID?
"Person worship is just finally coming back on some major cities. And we're supposed to all of a sudden kind of say, ah, you know, politics doesn't really matter. Politics came into the church. This is what I always laugh. People say separation of church and state, not in the constitution, not in the federalist papers, not in the Declaration of Independence. It's nowhere. It's a single letter that Thomas Jefferson wrote to the Danbury baptist convention. Actually, assuring them that the government wouldn't come after them. But then I always laugh at people, they say separation of church and state, I said, okay, hold on a second. Then why didn't you keep the government out of the church during the pandemic? Why didn't it's true separation than the church never should have been forced to close? Finds lockdowns, castors being arrested if it was true, it was never separated for church and state. You know what they're really saying? They're saying Christians don't get involved in government. That's all that they're saying.
Dennis Examines the Founding Fathers' Attitudes Toward Christianity
"Was reading last night a book I'll get you the title. I don't remember it. A book about the founding fathers and their attitudes towards God, the Bible and Christianity. And I was reading an excerpt from things that Thomas Jefferson wrote and said. Which were truly critical of Christianity. And I was thinking all these leftists, all these Democrats, which is now become unfortunately almost indistinguishable. Who say that the Christians in America want a Christian theocracy and that should they come to power, they will suppress the dissenters, people who think differently, et cetera. On what is their basis?
Charlie Chats With Anonymous Genius “Kane” of Citizen Free Press
"I'm sure many of you have noticed in the last couple years how drudge report has just become a left wing rag. It's unreadable. I used to go to drudge all the time. I don't go anymore. There's a new website, though, that is surging in traffic. They do a wonderful job of aggregation and staying on top of the news. It is citizen free press dot com. They're I have to tell you traffic is unbelievable lately. And the man behind citizen free press is someone just called Kane. You could call him Citizen Kane. He stays anonymous so that the left doesn't screw with him and that he's able to continue to operate the website freely to give an idea. Susan free press had a 169 million page views in the month of July. That is more than Politico, The Wall Street Journal Huffington Post, NBC News, TMZ, CBS News Daily Beast, ABC News, and more. And the man behind citizen free press, who is just called Kane. He lives in Bloomington, Indiana, and moraine anonymous for many reasons, of which I fully support, joins us right now. Citizen Kane, who runs citizen free press, how are you? Welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Thanks, Charlie. Glad to be here. And yeah, I'll touch on that a little bit. Look, from day one, I wanted to avoid any interaction with David Brock and media manner. And it's only grown in the last 5 years since I've been running the site, so it helps to stay anonymous. And somehow I've been able to do it for 5 and a half years. No one has no one listening has ever recognized that photo. Those are the colonnade of Thomas Jefferson's lawn in Charlottesville at the University of Virginia. So that's actually a reunion photo. So I'm a graduate of the University of Virginia. And used to be a progress grad, but in the new woke UVA, not so proud.
The Final Mystery of the 1800 Presidential Election
"By the way credit to John furling author November 1 2004 of this outstanding piece The final mystery of the election of 1800 is whether Thomas Jefferson and his backers would have sanctioned violence Had he been denied the presidency Soon after taking office Jefferson claimed that quote there was no idea of using force but his remark proves little He joined the ongoing battle in the house he alternately spoke of a seeding to the federalist misconduct in the hope that their behavior would ruin them of calling a second constitutional convention He probably would have chosen one or both of those courses before risking bloodshed in the end of the union You understand Jefferson mentioned the use of force by the Republicans against the federalists and against the existing government Several times Donald Trump has mentioned it not once

We Live In the Greatest Nation Ever to Exist
"In the greatest nation ever to exist in the history of the world, everybody. And they are the ones that are coming in to our classrooms. They're the ones that are teaching us differently. You see, somebody asked me the other day. They said, Charlie, what does all of this have to do with you? Why do you care about America so much? How does it impact you? And that's exactly what's wrong with how we talk about politics. The politics shouldn't all be about you. It's about your children. It's about maybe your grandfather that fought in World War II. Maybe it's about children yet to be born. Maybe it's about a nation that you grew up loving and admiring. Maybe it's about honoring the sacrifice of Iwo Jima and D-Day. Maybe it's about honoring the brilliance of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. Maybe it isn't about me. Maybe it's about something bigger than myself.
Founding Father James Madison Sidelined by Woke History in His Home
"Mary Kay lynch and John Levine reporting in the near post founding father James Madison's sidelined by woke history in his own home The globalists built excuse me The globus billionaire who funded the woke transformation Of Thomas Jefferson Monticello paid for a similar overhaul of James Madison's house With the author of the U.S. Constitution has been shoved into a supporting role while slavery and racism takes center stage No American flags fly up on Pierre Madison's plantation home and roll Virginia And not a single display focuses on the life and accomplishment of America's foremost political philosopher Who created our three branch federal system of government wrote the Bill of Rights and the federalist papers and served two terms as president Instead blindsided tourists are hammered by high-tech exhibits about Madison slaves and current racial conflicts Thanks to a $10 million grant from left leaning philanthropist David M Rubenstein Now remember this guy gave 20 million to Monticello Quote I was kind of thinking we'd be hearing more about the constitution one baffled dad said When the New York Post visited the president's home this week but everything he's really about a slavery It's been inspirational I guess shrugged John from Wisconsin after taking the $35 guided tour Reviewers on social media had been more harsh they really missed the mark Greg Hancock of May say Arizona posted last week we left disappointed not learning not having learned more about the creation of the constitution
The Media Comes At Charlie for His 'Church and State' Comments
"I saw you went viral for saying something about the church and state being mixed together. Can you please elaborate on that? Yes, so we were interviewing congressman Jim banks. You should go back and listen to episode. It's pretty awesome. And he was talking about how the Biden regime is exporting atheism worldwide. And I'm going to read exactly what I said, and I'm going to allow my words to hold itself. So this is from mediaite who they said Charlie Kirk, the bag of potatoes. That's what they call me. Who runs turning point USA erroneously claimed the nation's founders wanted religion and government mixed together. They did. He called the siloing of the two, a fabrication contrived by humanists. Speaking on his program, he said that, quote, there is no separation of church and state. According to the founders, that is correct. And I said, quote, it is derived from a single letter that Thomas Jefferson wrote to the Danbury baptist convention. He said referring to a correspondence in which Jefferson a founder endorsed the idea quote of a wall of separation between religion and government. I said quote, of course we should have church and state mixed together. Quote, our founding fathers believed in that, we can go through the detail of that, the established literally a church in Congress, which is true they established chaplain's offices and prayer rooms and religious ceremonies in Congress. And so immediately the media responded to this never giving me a chance to reply. But there was one very smug person who's a professor from Wheaton college, which used to be a really good place and is now a complete woke and unfortunately increasingly godless institution, Wheaton college. By the name of Miranda yaver, doctor Miranda yaver. So she tweeted something at me. She said, good thing Charlie is not taking my constitutional court law course or else he would fail. So I responded, I emailed her, and I said, hey, do you want to come on the show? And we could talk about this. And we won't debate it. I want to know your thoughts and I'll tell you mine. And because I know a fair amount of history and you're an important person, you're an associate Professor of political science and you're supposed to be super smart. Why don't we have a conversation about this? And so then she says, quote, very smugly and arrogantly, hi Charlie, if you enroll at Wheaton college, you're more than welcome to take my constitutional law course. In the meantime, I suggest that you read the First Amendment.
What Connor Boyack Discovered With 'America's History 1215-1776'
"Left. We're talking to Connor boyack, who is the author of this book. So what is your sense of American history today? As you go through these ideas and you say, what did you discover in a sense, even though you knew a lot of this before? But what did you discover? I think I rediscovered what we've discussed in that is God's hand and the Providence that a lot of the founding fathers recognize this miracle in a lot of ways for the circumstances. I think what had faded for me in years past was the appreciation for how remarkable in the true sense of the word that all of these events where you get used to it. You just, it is what it is. And frankly, let's go set off fireworks and have our barbecue. But when you really is when you see these people going through a can you see someone like Thomas Jefferson, who yes had slaves yet at the same time was bemoaning slavery and trying to figure out ways to move away from it, right? He was a thinker way ahead of his time. We don't appreciate enough the ingenuity and the amazing educated enlightenment of the people who helped form this nation. So what I hope the gift that we're trying to provide families with this book is to say you can appreciate that too. You can understand these ideas and more importantly, they can be empowering to your life today. It's one thing to just read history and say, oh, that was interesting, right? No, we want to empower you to make a better world today, and that's what our goal is with our
AJ Looks at the Cluster of Presidential Deaths on July 4th
"The close cluster of July 4th, as really weird. Especially given the prehistoric prehistoric, the historic importance of that day. The first adult Thomas Jefferson was 83 years old at the time. And he was bedridden for a month with a bunch of different physical bullshit ailments. He called a fever on July 3rd, died the next day. At his home in Monticello, Virginia. Meanwhile, since hundred miles away and Quincy Massachusetts, 90 year old John Adams was also on his deathbed. And he died soon after that. Entirely unaware of Jefferson's passing. Adams oblivious last words were reportedly, Thomas Jefferson still survives, and it was the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. That's some crazy stuff. It really is. And president John Quincy Adams stuck struck by his father and Thomas Jefferson dying, not just on the same day, but on such an historic occasion, he called the timing visible and palpable remarks of divine favor. Those are such wonderful words put in a row. Visible and palpable remarks of divine favor. I'm not even sure how he came up with that. That's beautiful. There was a Saturday back then, Daniel Webster, and he agreed. He agreed remarking in a eulogy a month after Adams and Jefferson's death, he said they were proof that our country and its benefactors are objects of God's care. And then I know this is like a history lesson, but it's really important. It's July. It's July 4th, these deaths are saying. 5 years after Jefferson and Adams passed away, James Monroe dies of tuberculosis at 73 years old. At his daughter's house in New York
Were All of the Founding Fathers Slave Owners?
"Charlie, my friends all say the founding fathers were slave owners. What do you have to say about that? That is what John says from Pennsylvania. So I've done a, let's say a fair amount of public commentary on this. And I have to thank the great hillsdale college for this, honestly. So look, I went down into the hillsdale online courses, Charlie for hillsdale dot com. You should all check it out. That's Charlie F war hillsdale dot com. And I did the work. A couple years ago, I'd kind of just trip over my words whenever the issue of founding fathers and slavery came up. And I probably had a response that some of you gave like, oh yeah, but we abolished it and that was then and now this was then and this is now. That's not even a proper answer. Because it's not true. The founders all knew what they were doing was wrong. They wrote openly about it. So that doesn't make them hypocrites, it makes them sinners. As the great doctor Larry arn would say. 9 out of 13 a colonies had already abolished slavery by the time the constitution was ratified. The first antislavery convention was hosted in Philadelphia in 1775 by Benjamin Franklin. Thomas Jefferson admonished king George for bringing the Senate slavery into America. In the original draft of the Declaration of Independence. The northwest ordinance, article 6, said that no slaves should be in the new territories. But Nicole Hannah Jones insists that America's true founding was not in 1776 but 1619. Now who is Nicole Hannah Jones? She is the con artist that runs The New York Times 1619 project that your kid is probably learning from right now. Let's play cut one 53. 1619 in August of 1619 is when the first group of 20 to 30 Africans were sold into the Virginia colony. And what the project is basically arguing is that that is actually a foundational to the American story as the year 1776 because nothing would be left untouched by that decision to engage in the institutional slavery. So for those of you listening on podcasts, looks as if she has Elmo on her head. I don't quite understand. That someone went crazy with a dry erase marker. She's this massive orange head of hair. That is very bright. The sunglasses watching that clip.
Is the GOP Winning Voters? Or Is the Left Just Losing Them?
"You see, we talked yesterday about the 1 million voters switching to the Republican Party in a warning sign for Democrats. But I do not believe this is because of the brilliance of the Republican Party. I believe this is because of how terrible the left is. Now, the left is terrible for the time being. I've actually think we're going to have a generation of Democrats digging a deeper and deeper hole. Of policies and ideas and a worldview that is deeply unpopular because it runs against nature. You see, we're going to celebrate July 4th coming up actually on Friday. We're going to do our July 4th show in anticipation of July 4th next week because we're taking off an Independence Day. And when we do our July 4th show on Friday as we talk about the Continental Congress and we talk about what exactly was being debated when the declaration was being written, primarily by Thomas Jefferson, there's this beautiful line about the laws of nature and nature's God. We talk about that a lot on this program. So nature comes from the Latin word, which means birth comes out of the earth. Things that do not change. You see, inherent in being a conservative is you believe there is a certain natural law. You believe there's laws of economics, you believe that there's laws of thermodynamics. There's laws of physics. There's laws of politics and there's laws of nature. And so a conservative generally recognizes that men can not become pregnant. Generally recognizes that life is sacred. And so you kind of live within the framework of what we would call reality.
Charlie Reflects on Our Collective Birth Certificate: The Constitution
"One of the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands, which have connected them with another. And to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and nature's God entitle them. A decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness that to secure these rights governments are instituted among men deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. I'm reading, of course, our birth certificate. July 4th, 1776. The founding of America on July 4th 1776 is a profound and meaningful day. You see, America did not stumble into existence. It was summoned into existence. It was a moral claim written by Thomas Jefferson and signed by these incredible men from roger Sherman to William Williams to John Hancock that men deserve the ability to govern themselves. Let me read that again. Deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. This was and is the great shot forward.
Times Our Government Wanted to Monitor & Control Speech
"And now we have these efforts with the government To monitor speech of a government's monitoring speech it wants to control speech This has happened from time to time in our history The difference is believe that these were terrible terrible even grave errors on the part of presidents and congresses Whether it was done by John Adams our second president to try and silence Thomas Jefferson in the new Republican Party The Civil War period where some 200 newspapers were shut down A hundred years ago when Woodrow Wilson the more modern period actually in prison people who disagree with this position on the war when FDR unleash the IRS against his political opponents who would speak out against him and that would include numerous newspaper publishers and I could go on and on These are very very bad times in American history but now presumably we've learned from this And if you noticed how little the corrupt American media AKA the American pravda how little they've objected to this It's conservatives Constitutionalists who are objecting

Why Russia Is So Very Different With Paul Kengor
"Let's pretend it's day one of poor kangas communism in Russia one O one course. What is the first thing that neo fights that amateurs need to understand about Russia explain why Russia isn't like France, Russia isn't like Switzerland, is France isn't like Canada explain why Russia sorry, explain why Russia isn't like those countries and why it is so very, very different. And also the importance of the strong man. Yeah, it is so very, very different. And it's really kind of deep seated. In fact, our old friends, the late Richard pipes, who was professor at Harvard forever for a long time, going back to 19 50. He just died a few years ago. He wrote books on the Russian Revolution, the Russian Civil War, communism, a history. And he was in kind of a battle with Alexander Solzhenitsyn of all people, right? Who we also greatly respect because pipes made comments like this and souls in its and thought that pipes was making a comment on the Russian people generally, right? That this is a people that's kind of destined for authoritarian leaders. That this is part of Russian culture. This is how they are. And I'm not going to go that far. I'm not going to say that. But let's just say God bless pipes who is a giant in your field. But there's not a lot of evidence to the contrary that it isn't. Something deep seated in Russian culture from Ivan the terrible all the way to Putin, this atavistic innate proclivity to follow a strong man. That's not a statement unfounded by empirical data, is it poor? No, it's right. In fact, I remember in the 1990s post communist Russia period. And I was talking to somebody from there and he said, look, there are no Thomas jeffersons in Russia, right? You have this country so rich and playwrights, writers, literature, a pianist composers, right? Tolstoy, dostoyevsky, right? And some of them with great statements about morality that dostoevsky among them. But they've never had a Milton Friedman. They've never had a Thomas Jefferson or James Madison.
The Top 3 Things That American Christians Should Do Right Now
"Just real quick lightning round. You can just quit top three things, practical things we can do as Christians that are Americans right now. Boy, top three things. First thing is, I mean, take your faith very seriously. I encourage people to make that number one. So I tell people all the time, look, my life's work, what I do is focus on the second most important thing. So before I tell you what that is, let's make sure we all agree on what the most important thing is. The most important thing that we can do is to win souls for Jesus Christ. It's the most important thing that we can do. Now, so what's the second most important thing? To make sure you could do the first thing. Yeah, there you go. Come on. That's my day job. My job every day when I do three hours of radio two podcasts today, traveled 330 days last year, college campuses, churches, organizing people, 200 plus people on staff, is to make sure that number one can keep on happening. To make sure that the church will remain open, that they'll never lock us down again that they will never persecute our faith again. So I just want to make sure we all understand the priorities, right? Well, thank you. Which, and we should always be clear about that, right? That's number one. That's number one. That's number one. You can take off your coat right now. No, it's good. You can go right now. And number two, make sure you could do number one. So I just encourage all of you to read the word every single day. Get into a very serious prayer routine. And if you're struggling with your faith, ask for help. That is what the church is supposed to be. It's supposed to be the infrastructure for people that are struggling and struggling as normal because we are in a Supernatural and a spiritual struggle right now. And understand the equipment, the spiritual equipment that God gives us to be able to win the spiritual battle. I could go deeper into this. In fact, in the next service, we might want to do some of the spiritual warfare stuff, but if you are not experiencing spiritual warfare at all and it's kind of like a weird distant concept to you. I'm going to lovingly tell you, maybe you're not doing something important enough, so Satan doesn't take you seriously. There you go. Which is every person that I encounter that is fighting for the gospel in the kingdom is experiencing some form of spiritual warfare right now. And Satan Satan we know the character of Satan. He's a liar. He's a deceiver. First Peter, it says he prowls the world like a lion looking for those to devour. Okay, that's number one. We have to take our faith seriously. Number two, which is I want to challenge all of you to become really passionate learners and educators of this country. And so it's not just about doing, but it's also about pausing and learning. Learning is a substantial activity that improves your country. When you know more about your history, all of a sudden you will be convicted more to fight. When you are able to answer to a friend where they say, this country is so racist, be like, hey, let's talk about that. Where you shouldn't be caught be caught off guard about someone that says, you know, our country was founded on slavery. Like, really? 9 out of 13 of the colonies had already abolished slavery by the time of the constitution was ratified. The first antislavery convention was held in 1775 chaired by Benjamin Franklin. The first state ever to abolish slavery was Vermont in 1776, inspired by the Declaration of Independence. Thomas Jefferson wrote in the original draft of the Declaration of Independence and monitoring king George for bringing the Senate slavery to the United States. Thomas Jefferson abolished the slave trade as one of his first acts of president in 1807 that this country said time and time again in the private journals and musings of every founding father, including the three architects of the U.S. Constitution, Hamilton, Madison and Jay that is not a matter of when it's how we will abolish slavery. We should all know that stuff, yeah? And so good. And so the third thing is this, which is you take your faith seriously, you're praying, you're fasting. Jesus said the hard things come to those that pray and fast. I'm a big believer in fasting. And so if that's a distant concept to you, I challenge you to look into it and to pray about it. I know that Greg leads you guys really amazingly on that. But I'm a big, big believer in fasting, then of course learning. The third thing is yes, it's going to take action. It is. And that means I know a lot of people here in this audience right now are saying Charles, you got to give me stuff to do. I've done everything that's been asked to me. I watched Tucker Carlson every night. I bought the pillow. I did everything I was supposed to do. Thank you. That's good. Promo code Kirk, by the way, at my pillow dot com. And the Giza dream sheets are spectacular. But all kidding aside, Greg, it's gonna take faith prayer and fasting is number one bucket. The second bucket is learning. We have a partnership with hillsdale college. It's Charlie for hillsdale dot com. Take some of the online courses. No what you have been given. If we have a national Alzheimer's moment, we don't know who we are, where we've come from a memory crisis. Then what are we actually doing here? You have to know what we're anchored to and the third thing, of course, is action. Running for office and supported a good ones that do. Homeschooling kids, shepherding those parents that might be overwhelmed that are homeschooling. Action action action and pushing yourself forward. Those are the three things that I would challenge this church to continue to do.
John Zmirak: 'Donald Trump Should Broker Peace in Ukraine'
"John's Muir. Welcome to the program. Thank you, Eric. Andy Kaufman, you sing here I've come to say the day. Exactly. That was actually that was my email. Yes. Mighty mouse is dead. It's tough. Listen on the glue trap. You've been writing a lot of a lot of stuff about the Ukraine. So the piece that you posted yesterday, brilliant concept. Let's start with that headline. Yeah, Donald Trump should broker peace in Ukraine. Donald Trump. Now, not a joke. No. I have a 100% serious. And it's not just because on some level he ought really to be president because he actually got more electoral votes and more popular votes. And the deep states stole the race in the most squalid Latin American style. And then covering it up in silence people in Eastern European totalitarian style. I mean, that's there. But really, I'm not being cynical. I don't want to use what's happening in Ukraine just for cheap domestic political gain. But I do think it will be good for America and good for Trump and good for all of us. As well. As for the people of Ukraine and the people of Russia. Because both populations matter. But before you just get into the details, are you, I mean, is it really possible that a former U.S. president could do something like this under who's a car is that work? Jimmy Carter flew around the world brokering negotiations after he was out of office. Jimmy Carter went Africa, Latin America. He had his own peace foundation. But he didn't need the permission of the U.S. government to do that. He just went and did it. That's right. And Donald Trump can do the same thing. And there is this thing called the Logan act that was used to intimidate and blackmail general Michael Flynn. But it is unconstitutional. No one has ever been successfully prosecuted under the Logan act. The Logan act was passed in something like 1801, and it was directed, I think, against Thomas Jefferson. It was in, I think. It was intended to stop Americans from engaging in diplomacy without the permission of the U.S. government.

"So Gabby reichard so last thing, as we kind of finish this up, what's your message then to just all people out there that are saying, I don't know if I want to speak out? Is it worth it? It's absolutely worth it. Find the network, find the chapter if you don't have a chapter, find that group on your campus. Y'all has been really great for us to work with with stuff like that. And take the first step of telling them directly, I don't feel comfortable. No, I'm not going to do this because that might be more of a solution than you think it is. And, you know, things start snowballing from there. It gets attention. You get resources or people who want to help you. And it's a long process and it takes a lot out of you, but these are the I have degrees and things that don't matter at a school that doesn't like me. So this is really important. At least you got a degree encourage Gabby. Thank you. Keep fighting. Thanks for coming on. Thanks so much. Internet privacy is extremely important.

It's extremely important to anonymize your online activity, ExpressVPN dot com slash Charlie. Let's get to this one about other treatments. I touched on the story yesterday. I want to zero in on this, which is the story of the Nebraska attorney general, which I think is a positive story on how we are able to effectively fight back against this medical tyranny. So the attorney general of Nebraska has now said why are we not allowing early treatments? When it comes to the Fauci virus. Now it's very important that we understand. And Daniel Horowitz said this on our podcast with one of the most amazing interviews we've ever had. This is a pandemic of the untreated. Not a pandemic of the unvaccinated. It's a pandemic of the untreated. And so the Nebraska attorney general has come out, and he has said that we are going to allow people to get Ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine, and he is getting attacked from every direction imaginable. And I say, why does the attorney general need to get involved in that? Well, because the attorney general is now saying that people will not be prosecuted as pharmacists for writing these scripts. Also breaking today. Harvard scientist has come out and he has said there is no discernible relationship between high vaccination rates and fewer infections. The Harvard scientists looked at 68 different countries and 3000 U.S. counties. 3000 U.S. counties. This is the new Harvard new article we'll put this on Charlie Kirk dot com. So for those of you that are losing your jobs because you have to get vaccinated, you should look at they say, oh, there's no discernible relationship between high vaccination rates and fewer infections. Cynthia here is asking from Michigan, Charlie, I'm about to lose my job. What do I say, should I just get the vaccine? What do I do? I'm not going to give you specific advice on exactly what to do. I will say, though, that you look at what's happened in the United Kingdom in Singapore and Israel, many of these other states, you are realizing that the higher the vaccination rate sometimes you might have a leaky vaccine. The Harvard journal is not getting much coverage at all, but also now you have Ron Johnson coming out. A U.S. senator who said that the vaccine has caused 16,766 deaths in ten months. This is senator Ron Johnson. So now you have the Nebraska attorney general and then the Louisiana attorney general who is a friend of mine, Jeff Landry, coming out and they're saying we have to allow people to get Ivermectin. We have to stand against mandates. This is a growing theme in profiles in courage, and that's actually a book that JFK wrote. You want to Pulitzer? He actually didn't write it. He was ghost wrote it, but his name was on it. And we need to have more people step up with courage like Ron Johnson, like the attorney general. Of Nebraska. And we are getting tons of emails, freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com of people in North Dakota, of what's happening in North Dakota right now of people that have spoke out, they're losing their jobs of the North Dakota public health department covering up vaccinated versus unvaccinated. This is unacceptable. Because in reality, you're looking at who's actually dying in some of these states, it's more vaccinated than unvaccinated. For an ever diminishing depleting vaccine, when I got coffee this morning, there were three there were four men sitting around the table, and they were talking about all their booster shots that they got. And one of them said, why do we have to keep on getting booster shots? Anyone said, oh, that's okay. I'll just keep getting a booster shot every 6 months. Don't you understand the scam and the game that's being played here? This is a pandemic of the untreated. If you come in full force early, Ivermectin hydroxychloroquine, azithromycin, vitamin D, monoclonal antibodies.

"A brilliant man wrote the words that we hold these truths to be self evident. That all men are created equal amongst these are life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness, originally, it was property. Now the exact reason why they're getting rid of Thomas Jefferson I don't know their exact reasons because he owns slaves. Is that what it was? Do you know that Thomas Jefferson actually worked to abolish slavery when he was governor of Virginia in the 1790s? Do you know that Thomas Jefferson heavily influenced by George Mason who wrote the Virginia declaration argued for slavery to be ended do you know that Thomas Jefferson who, of course, wrote the declaration, inspired the first state to abolish slavery in 1777 Vermont? Did you know that Thomas Jefferson was partners with Ben Franklin for the first ever abolition convention? Held in 1775 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Do you know that Thomas Jefferson was the first president to sign a moratorium saying that no new slaves were allowed to come into the United States? Thomas Jefferson was a good man. So what do we lose when we get rid of Thomas Jefferson? We lose a lot. More than anything else we lose the founding ideal. The promissory note that Frederick Douglass said existed. For people of all colors. All backgrounds, all skin colors, all backgrounds, all ethnicities. There's a book there's a book. There's an article on Barry Weiss's website by Samuel Goldman. Jefferson's far from the first statute of fall, and it sure won't be the last. But the plaster and bronze of which they are composed isn't the most important thing. What matters is the fate of the ideas and the declaration in Jefferson's hand. The ones that Lincoln described as an abstract truth, applicable to all men and all times, and a rebuke and a stumbling block to the very harbingers of reappearing tyranny and oppression. That's why they put his statue up. You see Thomas Jefferson understood the eternal. More than the temporal. Thomas Jefferson understood that there were certain laws that govern the way the universe operates. Thomas Jefferson understood that there is a creator and you are not him. Thomas Jefferson understood that there's a harmony to the universe. Thomas Jefferson understood montesquieu's spear to the laws that all power needs to be put in check, separated among such. Doing that Thomas Jefferson mentioned God four times in the Declaration of Independence. The four mentions of God are very unique. The supreme judge of the world. Is how they finished the mention to God. The creator of the universe. The administer of the laws, and the interpreter. Those are the three branches of government. Thomas Jefferson is teasing, the form of government that Madison Hamilton and Jay will pick up in the constitutional convention in 1787. Jefferson was an architect, he founded a university. Jefferson's theology was a little tricky, but he did believe in a God? He was not a deist that is not true. Were they more than anything else, Thomas Jefferson? Was loyal to his nation. Thomas Jefferson wanted what was best. For his fellow countrymen. At a very complicated relationship with slavery. But it says that all men are created equal. What does that mean? Does it mean that we all have the same skills? That we all have the same talents that we can all run the same speed? No, all men created equal means were the same sort of thing, where the speaking beings as Aristotle would say. We're the ones that can reason. You see animals can feel pleasure in pain, humans can say what is good and what is evil. You know what all human beings have in common? We're all born into a world we didn't create. We are all born into a world with lots of problems that we can't be blamed for. But we can be judged, though, is what did you do with those problems? Thomas Jefferson was born into a world where slavery was everywhere. By the time Thomas Jefferson died on July 4th, 1826, is that right? Fact checked me. I think it was July 4th, 1826 he died. Slavery was on the way out. 9 out of 13 of the original colonies had already abolished slavery by the time that Tom Thomas Jefferson died. Was 1826? I was right. Thomas Jefferson was an American hero. Thomas Jefferson was a gift to the world. In the New York assembly's taking down a statue, hey, turning point, Michael by that statute, we'd prominently display it here at our office. We're going to get more into the pattern of taking down statues, but all of you should be proud and thankful a man like Thomas Jefferson lived. I want you to imagine a 100,000 Americans losing their jobs. You can stop imagining because it's a reality. Why? Since 2015, over 100,000 independent farms and ranches in the United States have been shut down. Why? Because foreign meat is stealing their businesses and robbing.

"Thomas Jefferson was one of the most incredible men ever to live in the history of the planet. He was a statesman, he was a president, he was he was a civilization changer. He's the author and was the author of the Declaration of Independence. Now we must understand the beauty of the declaration independence. When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary, for one people, to dissolve the political bands with another. Deriving from the powers of the earth the equal and separate station. I'm going from memory here, so I might be bouncing around. And it goes on to say the laws of nature and nature's God. Thomas Jefferson was able to connect the fruits of the enlightenment and the roots of antiquity. Thomas Jefferson did that. Thomas Jefferson connected the fruits that came out of the ideas of freedom of speech and consciousness and self government, separation of powers checks and balances. But he did not go only and merely towards the enlightenment as if Machiavelli, what Machiavelli or Rousseau or Hume would have done. Jefferson instead struck a balance. Jefferson understood that there was a new type of thinking that was derived from the ancient. And then if we forget the ancient and go too far into this new way of government, it will collapse, but if we go to into the ancient, there's no claim to challenge the monarchy. Thomas Jefferson being a brilliant man wrote the words that we hold these truths to be self evident. That all men are created equal amongst these are life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness, originally, it was property.

"Who's offended by the author of the Declaration of Independence. Do you know these nutcases in New York City? Have decided to remove the statue of Thomas Jefferson. That has towered over members of the New York City council for over a hundred years. Because a number of city council members. Were offended by the presence of Thomas Jefferson because he owned slaves. Now, I know New York City pretty well. I wonder what they're going to they're going to have to reimagine Hamilton. You ever seen the musical Hamilton? Lin-Manuel Miranda's masterpiece? Good luck, mounting a production of Hamilton without Thomas Jefferson in the show. This week, shitty officials in New York voted unanimously. To remove the Thomas Jefferson statue. Now, New York is so dangerous right now and I'm not kidding you. It is not that's not an ask. Anybody who lives there. You go on to the subway at night, you're taking your life in your hands. I get approached almost every time I'm there with an aggressive panhandler, vagrant, angry, aggressive and people are getting stabbed. They're getting pushed in front of trains. They're getting slugged in the head, little old ladies are getting run over on Times Square and dying. There was a nurse who was run over by somebody last week. She died of her injuries. People are getting stabbed and sliced on the subways. People, they're shoplifters clearing out the shelves. There's an armed NYPD police officer who has to stand guard at the drugstore in my neighborhood in New York, where I live when I'm there. You know why? Because the give me give me give me crowd goes in and says, give me a shopping bag. I'm gonna steal everything I can because de Blasio on the Democrats aren't gonna prosecute me. They're not gonna go to jail for that. So they just go in and take. And while all that happening to New York, these lunatics are spending time and money to remove the statue of Thomas Jefferson. I mean, I'm not kidding. It has to be said. These are sick people. These are truly shockingly frighteningly sick people. Do you understand who Thomas Jefferson was? I gotta meet somebody. I'm gonna put out at all points bulletin here on the mic Gallagher show. If you're offended by a statue of Thomas Jefferson, you gotta call me. One 806 5 5 Mike. You have my word. We will be respectful. I will be kind. I won't yell. I won't call you any names. I just have to hear you out. I got it, 'cause this is incredible. Over a hundred years. 7 foot tall statute. You know how much is gonna talk cost? The taxpayers of New York like that like that matters. That's pennies to the taxpayers in New York because New Yorkers are already taxed through the nose. That's why John cats are Matisse said people are fleeing New York and going to a state like Florida. The black Latino and Asian caucus of New York City, the city council's black Latino and Asian caucus demanded the Thomas Jefferson statue be removed. If you're Asian, what do you care about Thomas Jefferson? If you're Latino, why do you care about Thomas Jefferson? If you're black, why do you care about Thomas Jefferson? He's dead. A lot of the founding fathers.

"We know we are winning on the right. They are on the run. They are playing defense on critical race theory. That's another one. Randi Weingarten is who you just heard from the American Federation of Teachers. And they are back pedaling like crazy on critical race theory they're claiming. No, no, no, no. It's only taught, you know, in the military and in the colleges and law schools and advanced education. We're not teaching that. In the elementary school. But by and by the way, it's very important. It's very important and we need to discuss racial inequities in this country. I could not agree more. We should teach American history. The good the bad and the ugly, But the problem is they're turning this around on the right like we only want to teach the good not true. Not true. I took a tour of Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson, and the guide was incredible. He spoke about all the great things that Thomas Jefferson did, and there were many. And he discussed the shortcomings of Jefferson as a person. The hypocrisy of him owning owning slaves. Sally Hemings being one of them. That does not make Thomas Jefferson evil. That does not require that Thomas Jefferson be cancelled. What have you done in your life? You leftist Ivory Tower, condescending jerk. Compare your life's accomplishments on a ledger. You can even use Excel. To those of Thomas Jefferson and try not to laugh at yourself. Get over yourself. Canceling Thomas Jefferson. No, We don't want to teach just the good but we also don't want to teach just the bad and the ugly. Like this is an evil country founded an evil principles of white supremacists. Um No, The idea of America was perfect and will illustrate that more in our second hour. When I go over the documentary that I just watched about Clarence Thomas And how he referred to his process. With the Senate Judiciary Committee. As a high tech lynching. You want racism? Want to see how this cuts both ways. Lawrence Thomas lends his voice to that project, and it is truly incredible before we go to break very quickly. I want to follow up on the Sean Penn business, and he's not a podcast with Conan O'Brien. They started talking about Cancel culture. Conan called it very Soviet. And to my surprise, Sean Penn agreed, said it was ludicrous. Sean Penn brought up Alexey McAmmond, former editor in chief of teen Vogue, who was fired Only a few weeks. On the job for anti Asian comments she tweeted as a teenager. 10 says. Quote when we're destroying careers like that. What are we really achieving? What are we doing? Then continues. Now he played Harvey Milk, the gay activist who was assassinated in California. Prominent figure of the 19 seventies. Very good friend of Dianne Feinstein. Penn says this, he said today. Almost certainly I would not be permitted to be cast in that role. We're living in a time. When if you're playing a gay lead character, you'd have to be a gay man or trans character. There have been these casting issues. And this is the big rod. The line of the entire article as follows. When you have a period of evolution that certainly has an opportunity for people who have had less opportunities to move forward that has to be supported. In other words, our progress to this point While not perfect, and not complete, needs to be acknowledged. Where a whole hell of a lot further along in 2021, Then we were in, say, 1971 pen continues. And yet in this pendulum swing society that we're in you wonder if at some point if only Danish princess can play Hamlet. It is. I believe too restrictive. People are looking for gotcha moments and to criticize.

It is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it. And to institute new government laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form as to them shall seem most likely to affect their safety and happiness prudence indeed we will dictate that governments. Long established should not be changed for light and transient causes and accordingly. All experience has shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer by louisville's are suffering than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed but when a long train of abuses and usurpation pursuing invariably the same object evinces design to reduce them under absolute despotism.

There's relatively low voltage in the limb leads. There's qa's which can be suggestive of cardiomyopathy in specific infiltrative inflammatory inflammatory process.
