Carl Jackson: The Church Must Speak Out Against the Woke

"Us that claim to be people of faith, those of us that are of a religious persuasion, we need to take all of these things into account and we need to step up and do our job. I do believe that America is woke because the church is weak. I do believe that the transgender craze exists because the church hadn't been speaking out. I do believe that CRT, this new systemic racism, implanted implanted by the Democrat party because they've always been a racist party for God's sake, but this new systemically racist Democrat party with their CRT with their SEL. Unfortunately, I think, in large part, are only successful because the church of God has been so unsuccessful. And it frustrates me. I say that as a Christian, I say that as an evangelical and I'm not without guilt. There are times perhaps where I should have spoken up more. I'm not quiet about hardly anything nowadays. But there are times I can look back and I'm like, man, I should have been more vocal. I should have taken this action or that action and guys, it's up to all of us now to take action to save this country and I am really challenging you people of faith. It's up to you to stand up to save this country. It's not enough to sit inside of some freaking fort will four walled building and think that you've done your job as a citizen as a Christian as a Jew as a Mormon as a Catholic. It is not enough. Your faith doesn't end at the doors of that sanctuary. But I think we've acted that way for so long. We can look at what it's caused, the havoc, that it's reeked.

Hopefully the president will see this as well. I don't know if you heard about this contractor. That said he can build the whole wall for a lot cheaper than anybody else and get it done by twenty twenty. You aware that yes. We're dealing with him. Actually fisher comes from north dakota just incredible stuff. I mean for a while you watch fox news without seeing some guy named tummy fisher just lobbying for a contract to build. Donald trump's wall in fact bloomberg reports in the first few years after the two thousand sixteen election fisher spent more than one hundred thousand dollars on lobbying in washington. And here's the thing. It worked kind of after being rejected by the department of homeland security and the army corps of engineers a nonprofit called. We build the wall. Great name paid fisher. Six point nine billion dollars to build a half mile length of border wall in new mexico. Seen here fisher than brought land on the texas border with the idea that we build the wall nonprofit would pay him to build a wall there too but the group flaked out on paying him and they retina some legal trouble. You might have heard about it when his founders of we build the wall including former trump advisor steve bannon were arrested and charged with defrauding. The organizations donors. Whoa shocker but fisher kept building. Spending what he says is thirty million dollars company money to build a three mile. Stretch the wall right next to the rio grande you can see how close it is to the river at some points there. It was all built with private money and fisher was still looking for big federal contract. That's what he was pitching in his media blitz and it finally paid off and trump's last year in office when according to bloomberg again fisher sanding gravel was awarded two point five billion with a b. dollars to build one hundred and thirty five miles worth of federal wall sections your human nogales arizona and will pass on the radio in texas at the time. We pointed out on this program that one of those contracts raised all kinds of questions in part because the washington post reported trump repeatedly pushed for fisher to get a wall building contract urging officials with the army corps of engineers to pick the firm only to be told that fisher's bid did not need standards trump and kept pushing until the company was added to a pool of competitors and voted behold finally awarded those massive multi-billion dollar contracts. Now unfortunately for tommy fisher one of the first things. Joe biden do's president was halted all construction walls of the border. Basically can't canceling out. That mega wall contracts. So now tommy. Fisher is looking for someone else to purchase to by his three mile. Verdy million dollars stretch of texas border wall where a hurricane caused significant erosion of the banks up to and under the concrete foundations. So not in one hundred percents shaped to steph.

This was more than an hour long speech by the president we think this is the second longest.

There was a lot and a lot of it was wrong sense that factually wrong just to be clear a few things. There are not any approved effective lifesaving therapies for corona virus right now there are. There's a lot of hope but there is no. Proven efficacy for convalescent plasma for any other therapy despite with the president said tonight, we also don't have the testing system in the world we have a disastrously failed testing system. We also have bluntly the largest and deadliest virus epidemic. In the entire world, we have four percent of the world's population and twenty five percent of the world's deaths.

The Perils of 19th Century Etiquette

"We are taking a trip back in time to explore the elaborate and prejudice intricacies of nineteenth century etiquette. And you know manners may not be exactly the first thing that comes to mind when you think of perilous situations but let me assure you that some of these codes which govern the social graces during this time period and we are talking specifically here about Europe and America. Here say well. These codes of etiquette can be mind blowing Lee complicated and one false step well. It wasn't just embarrassing. It could potentially mean utter social ruin not to mention these codes of etiquette were specific to gender age and even Marital Status. So you had to keep all of these designations in mind with each and every social interaction you had throughout the day. Many of the rules governing behavior during the nineteenth century can fill a bit overwrought and even a tad ridiculous to us today but at the time they were considered the very fabric and structure of society to even begin to comprehend them ourselves. We of course while we headed straight to the bookshelf for etiquette books of the era. Yes and we are super fortunate to have a whole slew of these types of books special collections at fit. And I look specifically at the following books. I looked at etiquette for ladies which is published by Leeann Blanchard in eighteen thirty nine. I looked at the American gentleman's guide to politeness by Henry. Liu Nets from eighteen fifty nine social etiquette of New York by Abby Buchanan Long Street from eighteen eighty four manners and social usages by Mrs John Sherwood from eighteen eighty seven and manners culture and dress of the best American society by Richard A wells from eighteen. Ninety three okay that was that was a mouthful and that cast is just the very tip of the iceberg in terms of our holdings. We have so so so many more including also ones that are kind of blend of being etiquette and also like a beauty guide as well so right and the great number of these relate directly to the fact that these little books were immensely popular at the time the beginning of the nineteenth century San explosion of not only etiquette books onto the market but also ladies magazines which frequently codified and coached the readers into their finer points of quote unquote proper behavior and in the wake of the French Revolution. The spread of democratic and Republican forms of government really spurred the growth of the middle classes and with all that brand new upward mobility came increased tensions and anxieties over one social standing quotes etiquette is the machinery of society. It is like a wall built up around us to protect us from disagreeable under Brad People. Who were fused? Take the trouble to be civil. Wrote one source from eighteen eighty four so basically anyone who is interested in bettering their station in life. A deft knowledge of etiquette was key to gain acceptance into the world of society proper. You know an an a lapse in this performance of manners and I say performance because it really really was It could be quickly. Chalked up to one's lack of so-called good breeding. And this is the phrase that you see over and over and over again in these manuals good breeding and if one was deemed uncouth or quote unquote. Ill bred that could also make you an undesirable acquaintance at the time because basically anyone who was in your social circle was very much considered a reflection upon yourself yes and this rapid expansion of the middle classes Europe in America during the nineteenth century is a big part of the reason why etiquette books were so popular at the time as we just mentioned so if you weren't necessarily raised in the know you could just buy a book that delineated roles on the proper way to move throughout the world and these books covered all sorts of events and occasions from things. We consider pretty standard today so like table manners wedding etiquette or how to console a bereaved friend but also more than a few topics that we would consider. Well a little niece today. Yes and just a couple of my favorites include how to format a personal letter to the president of the United States. Naturally clearly we've all done right The proper deportment to have when taking one's Harvard exams which I found this especially funny because this is the only university mentioned this etiquette book and I believe at this time. It was only men that could enroll in Harvard. So I guess the etiquette manuals saying go go harvard or go home. I don't know One source I looked at had hilariously titled Section called Lives Shipwrecks. I haven't dove into this quite yet but I remain most intriguing. I will return to that chapter but last but not least is how to deal with quote. Low Bread Women cads slanderers and scandal. Mongers timing. Come on you gotTa love that Punchy Nineteenth Century Language of course there is no way we can possibly cover all of these topics and a single episode of dress so we had narrowed. Today's focus down to what was one of the most interesting aspects of nineteenth century etiquette. And that is the practice of calling and by this. We do not mean placing telephone call because we have to remember that the very first telephone systems were really only commercially. Viable starting in eighteen seventy seven and the adoption for home. Use was rather slow. I have to say According to the US Department of the Interior in one thousand nine hundred only three percent of US homes had their own telephone so that begs the question. Just how did people communicate with each other during the nineteenth century? I mean letter writing. Of course that's a given but there were also this other form of calling these in person visitations which were governed by some of the strictest rules of etiquette but before we even get to the matter of visits and calls. We've I must address the matter of meetings and introductions during the nineteenth century it was rarely considered appropriate for to individuals regardless of their sex to meet without a formal introduction by way of a friend or a relative and even then both parties were supposed to separately agreed to the introduction in advanced unsolicited introductions are bad for both parties and this was stressed by one etiquette. Manual we consulted. Yeah and you might be asked why. Well a formal introduction had the implications that the association between the two parties was going to continue and this was especially true when it came to introductions to women quote great prudence or action must always be used but infinitely more care is necessary as a lady cannot shake off an improper acquaintance with the same facility as a gentleman can do and their character is much easier affected by the apparent contact with worthless and the dissipated out. That's rough the weaker. Fairer sex. The more impressionable right so once. Both parties had agreed to a formal introduction. It was protocol to I. Present not introduced a gentleman to the lady. She in turn was expected to respond with a slight bow. A faint smile and saying his name so the person making the introduction would be like Mr Smith desires to be presented to Miss White Miss White wishes to be acquainted with Mr Smith. Then miss white would bow smile and say Mr Smith and April. This bow was absolutely necessary according to etiquette books which say that unless she bowed gentlemen cannot claim her as an acquaintance. When we say some of these finer points finicky were not lying and right now in my mind so many historical period films are coming into my my mind right and all of that. Formality is making so much more sense. Now because men were to be presented to women and women had to formally accept that social connection so that's between men and women but cast what about introductions between Women Shirley? These were a little bit less complicated. One might think but I mean not really after agreeing to be introduced in the case of two women the younger was to be introduced but not quote unquote presented to the older of the two ladies. If the two women happen to be of similar ages their marital status now came into play and the single eighty would be introduced to them married woman and if two women of the same age and marital status were being introduced the one of lesser social standing would be introduced. I this just sounds I mean. It's

Lying in states: fibbing politicians

"But I as twenty nineteen draws to a close. Our top story takes a step step away from the news to examine a trend that's dominated the year. The world is accustomed to hearing the lies of dictators that North Korean leader Kim Jong is a Demi God that America caused Venezuela's economic mess looking much happened on June fourth nineteen eighty-nine Square in democracies to all additions have always massaged the story even mangled the truth say this. I did not have sexual relations with that woman. But there's something different and about the age we live in today. What's different now is that there's more grazing and open and repeated political lying in democracies. Don Parker is economists editor at large. So the best example of this has this little Miss Leader of the Western. Some world is trump himself from. Keep saying that. We're building the wall building a wall on the border of New Mexico and we're building a wall in Colorado. We're building beautiful wall. He keeps saying that the comedy is never been better. Nobody's ever been president. That has the greatest economy in the history of the country. This is the greatest economy and history of our country. These are the greatest unemployment than trump lies so frequently that there are several websites sites devoted to his misleading information and the one kept by the Washington. Post says he's made thirteen thousand five hundred law knives or fossil misleading statements in the course of his presidency. That's running at about twenty a day. That's enormous number. And trump lies is more brazenly than most. But he's certainly not the only one. Boris Johnson British. Prime Minister has a long record of telling lies. He got fired from a newspaper. Job for making up a quote. He misled the Queen. which is a fairly unusual thing to do so there have been a surprising ising number of politicians who haven't just sorta bent the truth the beach they've told flat out walls? And how easy is it for voters. Do you think to detect when politicians are lying. They walkers or the more subtle kind people find it difficult even in the olden recalls of their lives to distinguish wish. When somebody is lying now there have been tests of this and it seems like we are to use the word of the main tester. GEICO Tim Levine. At the University of Alabama. We're hard wired to believe what people tell us simply in order to make communication possible if everybody were having to justify everything they say. From first principles communication would become almost impossible symbol so we default to believing that what we're told is true so that communication can keep going between people and viewed through through that Lens. It might seem that those who would want to tell untruths or essentially sort of exploiting that hardwired nature. I mean having seen that play out. Why don't we disrespect that. In the politicians nations there is a curiosity about trump and Johnson and others which is put bluntly people tend to support politicians even though their lines. Why is that though. Why wouldn't voters be bothered by dishonesty. In what should be example setting leaders one very important consideration here is fat. Political decision-making isn't dominated by rational Ford. And somebody amazingly enough tested at this out by putting people inside an MRI scanner and looking at which bits of their brain lit up when they were told things supported reported what they believe anyway and things which contradicted what they believed anyway. The one of the brain that never lit up was the part most commonly associated with rational rational thought. So political decision making is intuitive. One's not so worried whether something is true or not related eighteen to this every body has what's called confirmation bias the tendency to seek out the kinds of information that confirms what you think anyway. A Nice example of this from America is the tendency of Democrats and Republicans to consume totally different types of us in the Republicans. Watch Fox News. Democrats read The New York Times and in those those two places. They're basically told what they think anyway. In addition to all that very very interesting perception by a guy at Cornell called Thomas Guillevic if your face with something that challenges your point of view your reaction is must. I believe that. And if you're faced swith something which confirms your point of view you say may I believe that not must I believe. Let me give an example on this one. You don't really believe that climate change is real so you ask. May I believe as it were that. Climate change isn't real. All you need is one self-proclaimed climate scientists say no. No you can continue to believe that climate change change is really happening and you will believe that people aren't looking at the balance of judgment and coming to an impartial troll views. Something not like other jury or the judge. They're much more like the prosecutor and so in this case I think identifying lies. That's it's just not important to the way people make political decisions I mean if these are the biases that are evolutionary baked into humans and the the exigencies of political decision making having always been the way they are and this sort of flexibility. With the truth that's required sometimes in such positions. It makes you wonder how. How did the truth ever have a chance yes. I agree with that. People always complained about politicians distorting the truth telling outright lies but it's made possible. Oh by some more recent developments which I think the most important is fake news. There's much much more fake news around and of course fake news is a product of people's willingness to tell lies but it's a cause of it too. There's just so much fake news that it exaggerates the the confirmation bias that exists anyway and there are some tests published in science magazine last year. which showed that actually fake political basical news spread more quickly than any other kinds of fake news so mark Twain and Winston Churchill accredited with the notion? That lies is run two or three times around the world while the truth is still up. It's boots but that turns out to be always literally true. John Thank you very much for that. Very real news discussion. You know why they won't be insane. Everything I just said is supported it by the psychological testing and rigorous fact Chen. Exactly

"Rules it was in the big four four Gatos Chad Benson on KTAR we deliver for big block buster stories this is big story one how ice agents had to back down after neighbors an activist linked arms to keep ice from a man who is here illegally and his twelve year old son so that was I guess you could say can cook could consider one of the raids that we heard about so last week when we're telling you know yeah ice is going around the country it's gonna be a big weekend for you know them they've got a lot of work to do because they're targeting two thousand illegal immigrants two thousand Atlanta LA San Francisco goodness New York New York comic kago all the sanctuary cities right two thousand people were targeted everybody was talking about it hi and they arrested just thirty five people well I mean they didn't really even arrest thirty five people as you said they arrested seventeen and there were eighteen others that were collateral damage which means what what which means that they were there they were told they were there the wrong place wrong place wrong place wrong actually going to be harboring somebody and so you're caught up in it so they caught people wrong place wrong time eighteen of them they caught more people who are in the wrong place at the wrong time then who they were actually targeting which drive me crazy is and and I and I and I keep waiting where where are you Democrats where you progressive I want to hear from people even Republicans with this if you say you don't want to have open borders but you our fine with this kind of stuff happening even though they have gone through the entire system the you say we need to keep the system the way it is they should play for silence and even when they do and they don't get what you want them to get and your fine with it did why have a damn system at all I don't Tom I I'm kind of thinking that this is what they thought was going to happen if you're gonna have raids over the weekend in all these different cities and almost all of them were sanctuary cities not to sound too stars not sanctuary yet but they will be I try and I I don't think it was about arresting anybody I don't think it was about getting two thousand people who had been through the court process and I've been handed you know their deportation letter whatever it is I think it really was about trump kind of carrying around this big stick saying if you're here legally I'm watching you I know you're here and I'm gonna deport you and it made a lot of people scared to me a lot of people people fearful I don't think that's the right thing to do that's why I think he wanted I think if you were to ask the president would you like to scare the crap out of a bunch of illegal immigrants or actually get two thousand rounded up he would take the fear first the big thing for him is is he's failed he's got a he's not got an ounce inch of the wall built he has failed in comparison to what Obama did as far as actual deportations there's so many things that he is not being able to do and that's not all his fault obviously he's got roadblocks in the way some Republicans and and some dumb and a good portion of the Democrats but the reality is is he's looking around and he may want to scare people because that's the last option yes because he's get nothing else done he is falling and failing over and over again with this but but he's keeping asylum seekers in Mexico that's a positive thing it is okay it is for now though but we don't have the skills and have some flaws right Mexico did say today we're not going to be part of your new plan or if you're from Central America the third country plan and you're going to Mexico that's where you have to stay and seek asylum because everybody in Central America goes to Mexico then travels to the United States and trump's rule now is if you go through one other country which is the way that you and has it on there but sickly their charters is if it is so if you're flying from Afghanistan you land in Canada you have to apply for asylum in the safe country Iraq I'm too so if central Americans go to Mexico first that's what they've got to apply no one to do that then they want to come to the U. S. Mexico says are not playable on that yeah that was a new wrinkle so and we'll see how that goes because he's got that it was silent thing these trying to roll with and I just I don't okay we have a failure inside of our system and if this is what you can do then what's the year seven a system because it feels to me like you're fine with open borders and that you only want to obey the rules that go your way go sit in the big four

Closer, I told the president. If you open up the government, I'm still not going to give you dollar one for the border. And again, I'm highly concerned about using the national emergency power and authority primarily because if he uses it'll be challenged in court, and we won't get the wall built and Neil. We do need better barriers walls work. They three. To be redeployed at the ports of entry. So we can try and capture some of the heroin come this country. We have to fix these laws.
