Ariza your friends. So i'm just giving away. I think that the greatest threat to christian theology right now is critical theory. I believe it's the counterfeit i believe. It seeks to undo anything that looks like traditional western values. Marriage family sexuality critical race theory is a part of that but it's much much much bigger issue. Critical theory includes gender. Studies ribbon seeing it now with mask. No mask vaccine. No vaccine almost every single cultural collision that we're having is up against critical

They took a video a cell phone video of this fight and it really wasn't a fight. It was one guy beating up another guy. Well the guy that was getting beat beat up evidently went into a backpack.

Donald Trump Deserves a Nobel Peace Prize for the Abraham Accords
"Question. I wanna ask you and you can go anywhere you want. But when people talk about the abraham accords. I'm not sure. I understand the significance of that. I haven't heard much about it. Tell us what's your perspective on that. What did trump achieve anything. Well the media did a terrible job covering most important storage game. Changing set of arab-israeli peace agreements in a generation re literally have not had an arab-israeli peace accord in twenty five years We've only had two prior egypt and jordan and president trump who was told by everybody in the peace industry in washington. You'll make the middle east worse you'll never make peace. You don't know what you're doing. You're a moron. And yet he accomplished four arab israeli peace agreements plus an agreement between kozo a muslim majority but non arab country and israel. It's extraordinary what trump pulled out and eric. You know this about me. In sixteen i was a sharp critic of trump. i would've considered myself a never-trumper. But i did would always know whether never-trumper did i said. Okay i have these deep concerns about him but let's let's pray for him every day and let's see how he how how he does. When i sat with them in the oval office a scene described in this book. I told him that. I'd been a never-trumper now eric. You know the man. How often does the term never-trumper get used with mr trump in his presence particularly in the oval office because judging from the looking at his is not that often. But i said to him. Listen i didn't believe your promises. I didn't trust you. But i've been stunned by what you've accomplished and i began rattling these things off. Let's just take a few right. The abraham accord had not yet happened. But we were trending there. It was clear to me that he was going to be able to pull these things off. Four arab-israeli agreements. Okay plus destroying the isis kathy. Liberating five million christians and muslims and yazidi from the reign of terror of isis taking out the isis terror. Commander abu bacher all-body taking out the top iranian terror general qasim sulamani ripping up the iran nuclear deal of imposing a maximum pressure sanctions campaign against iran. Moving the us embassy from talbot to jerusalem recognizing israel sovereign rights over the golan heights. And i could go on. And on as i do in enemies and is i believe. Trump deserves a nobel peace prize for the abraham accords. I doubt that he's going to get it. But if you don't win a nobel peace prize for creating peace with four arab countries and israel. What's the price

It's not going to go away. And just because it's on television.

"For over twenty five years in the middle Tennessee area. And really we help people all over the country, but we've been talking a little bit in the first segment about how he's a collaborative approach of bringing people together in the areas of investment advising retirement advising financial the whole financial planning spectrum. But then also the taxes planning the social security planning and even estate planning, and we we have a team of people that we try to come together to help people to have a one place income was some people are calling it a one stop shop to come together and get answers to how all this works together. And and that's something that we feel I guess Callan. I were saying in the last segment we feel like we've done really well and providing that. Yeah, I think people really like the one stop shop idea, the one stop shop approach where you know, they know that their investment advisers working with their tax repair, you know, to make sure that everything being done is in their best interest. Not. Just you know, their taxes or their investments, but their taxes and their vestments. I think people really like that idea. Are you saying people like convenience? I get crazy. And you know, I mean, I don't wanna I don't wanna be accused of blasphemy, but we're kind of like you're kind of like the super WalMart. That's the analogy. I'd give the super wall sheep, but we're not open at midnight or not a minute. You can't come to our officers. John what I'm trying to check out in their thirty registers. There's only two of them open. You can get everything here. But the good thing is Jimmy. I to me it's not only a matter of convenience. I think has definitely where some people would say this much more convenient because I don't have to go from my tax advisor. And then my finance are my tax planner and then go to my financial adviser. And then go to my attorney and talk to them, and I gotta go security off. So find out this stuff. So it's definitely that of convenience. But the truth is I think it kind of creates. Here's an overused word, but I think it uses it creates some synergy in the sense that we're all on the same page in the planning. So before we suggest something in the investment Cy we've already talked to Kellen because Kellen or or Craig are probably sitting in the room with us while we're doing this. And they're saying, well, here's going to be the tax implications. And this is how we can use these type of investments over a period of ten years to convert some of your money out of qualified to tax free status. And that sounds totally foreign to you don't worry about it. We're going to get into that to this. Show. But I think that's a part of it. Besides just the convenience convenience aspect. Yeah. I mean because the thing is most people who are financial advisor on on tax repairs aren't fluent in the language that that we tend to speak sometimes. So relaying what's going on from your financial advisor to your tax repair is not is not always easy. Right. You know? It's not always really simple to just say. Hey, here's what my financial adviser says, what's your opinion on this? Sometimes, you know, there's a lot of confusion that goes into that. And not every without being negative about anybody not every tax preparer because they don't have this background understands. Tau the investments in the financial planning side is really going to affect the taxes or vice versa. Sure. Yeah. I mean, you know, I think every every tax preparer knows the basics, but certainly there's not going to beat the level of understanding everywhere. Right. That there would be somewhere that that's focuses and specializes in that. Yeah. You know, having everybody under one roof just it prevents a lot of confusion. It prevents a lot of miscommunication. And like I said earlier just gets a lot of stuff done that. Sometimes doesn't get done. Right. You know, when you're running back and forth and try and make sure you're saying it, right?
