Nick Searcy Compares the Trump Presidency Versus Biden Regime
"Let's talk about what we have witnessed in the last ten months. What we have seen in the transition from the Trump administration to the current Biden, I prefer to call it regime. You've been around a fair few years, you've been around the block here of a certain age. Did you ever think it would be this bad this fast? I would say yes. I kind of, you know, I knew when the events of the election happened the way they happened. I knew it was going to get bad fast because I knew that the people behind the Joe Biden administration you know, they're not Joe Biden. It's kind of a cabal behind him that's putting origin his mouth and telling him what to do. And I knew that they were going to move as fast as they possibly could to destroy as much of the country as they could get done before any backlash happens because that's what Lyft has always do whenever they get both houses and they get the presidency. They move the ball down the field as far as they can. Without any mercy whatsoever. And then when the Republicans, you know, get back the house, we may be take back 5, 6, 7 yards, and then they get it again and move it even further down the field. So I kind of figured when Joe Biden was installed that this was going to get really bad really

"I'm gonna drop the hammer on you. You've got a cool hat. This is making America talented again. And this is my bugbear for all of those conservative artiste out there. You don't suffer from this because you are making good stuff and you're acting in great things before things got so Uber political. But I have an issue with these people who come along, I'm a conservative producer. I'm a conservative film director, and I'm gonna make conservative content. And it's crap. And you'll beat over the head for 90 minutes with, you know, God is good or do you know atheists are bad and it's just unwatchable drag. You go back 60 years and you know this better than anyone you go back 60 70 years Hollywood made amazing movies that were patriotic and you didn't know they were really patriotic because first they were just compelling stories. You know, the capris of the world. The cue cores, the casablancas. Why have we become as conservatives, or why have your conservative colleagues forgotten how to do good content? Yeah, it is surprising. And I think that's true of any movie. No matter what side you're on, if your politics are showing all the way through the movie, whether it's left or right, it's not a good movie. It's not a good story. That's not good storytelling. And I think so many times what is happening is that people on our side that they are so concerned about the message that they want to give and they make the message so obvious that they forget the part about you have to make the story interesting. And you know, what I try to tell people is that most good movies are naturally conservative. You don't have to really work at it because in good movies, actions have consequences. You know, people heroes fight evil, right? Right. And they're just naturally conservative stories, you know, most of the time. And I think that's another thing that Hollywood has done is they've created this genre that they call faith based film. Yes. And the reason they did that is that they have it's not that they want to promote Christianity or anything like that. They make a little category. They say, oh, we're going to release this because there's some faith based. There's some Christian rubes out there that are going to buy it. And by calling it faith based, what they do is they send a message to everybody else, say, hey, you don't need to watch this. This is for Christian idiots only. And so what we have to do is just start making good movies that happen to be conservative. You know, not necessarily making conservative movies. No, that's absolutely true. Make a good movie right a good story first. And then the values will permeate through. We talked to Nick sisi follow him at yes Nick sisi subtitle insurrectional film and television star on Twitter. The movie on his latest movie, you can watch it and capital punishment of the movie dot com. You mentioned this new movie that you're going to be in with a Gina Carano that the wire has produced. The name of the movie again? Terror on the Prairie. Terror on the Prairie. Great, great title. When I look like this, I'm still 1880s still in my house. That's all right. But we like babes here on America first. So that's the daily why branching out into movies. That's a conservative content provider podcast company. You look at what's happened in the last year or so with the president being banned from Twitter Facebook, et cetera, alternatives coming up like parlor and then being beat down and then get her in the rise of rumble. Is there a danger? That patriots. And there's a lot of us. 74 million voted for president Trump. Is there a danger? Is there a danger that we're going to create this ghetto for content providing that's just hours and we're talking to each other? Is that the best way to proceed or is the hope that eventually our little, you know, mustard seed will become so successful that the Giants in Hollywood Comcast and the paramounts will just fall by the wayside? Is that realistic? What's the plan? Do it. Do we have a plan? Well, yeah, my plan is that we have to take it's going to take as long to take it back as it took for them to take it from us. You know, they have been going. They have been marching through our institutions like cruise ships at for the last hundred years. They've taken over academia. They've taken over politics. They've taken in and they've taken over Hollywood and they've been pushing these values for at least 50 or 60 years. And we're going to have to start pushing back and it's going to take us that long. And yes, I do think that we have to start building platforms and we do have to build subscription services. We have to build an alternative to Netflix. It doesn't necessarily have to be totally conservative. It just has to be, we're not going to censor conservatives. We're going to allow conservatives to speak here. And I think the more we do that, we have to take it back incrementally. You know, it's not going to happen overnight. It's not going to happen in two or three years. It's going to take a long, long time because it took them a long, long time to ruin everything. It's going to take us a while to get it back. Well, at least celebrate people like you, who are starting that worker, of course, several years ago with the shocking shocking truth, story of gosnell that you directed and now with what the daily wire is doing with you and Gina Carano. So something's happening. It's super, super exciting, and you've got my support guys. We talked a nexus, the actor director his latest movie came out on Thanksgiving. Please check it out, watch it today, capital, punishment, the movie dot com. It's about what really happened on January 6th setting the record straight in, talking to the people who were actually there, like Nick himself. That's capital punishment the movie dot com. Another truth teller. I'd like you to support a good friend of mine an amazing, amazing patriot is of course America's mayor. We had him on the show last week when I guest hosted for a Greg Kelly on newsmax. The left wants to destroy him strip him off his low licenses, get him in court on some trumped up charge. Please support America's mayor who's done so much for New York, but also for all Americans, especially with his investigations of the elections last November. So please go to Rudy Giuliani, freedom fund dot com support, one of America's greatest patriots. That's Rudy.
Nick Searcy Previews His New Film 'Capitol Punishment' About January 6th
"Capital punishment. What is it about? Tell us about this film that you have directed or produced along with the Chris burgard. Well, I was in Washington on January 6th, not because I was planning on making a movie, but just because I'm a great American. And so I was there and I was making some just kind of touristy sort of iPhone videos or whatever. And I saw people praying and singing with Star-Spangled Banner and saying the Pledge of Allegiance and to me it kind of looked like a tailgate party. It was a lot of fun. You know, I even called into the Rush Limbaugh show and gave a live report from the capitol. And I told him on the show. I said, you know, it's a lot of happy people here. They're singing songs and doesn't look dangerous at all. But when I got back home and I turned on the news, of course, the only thing that was shown was the violence that was happening in the break in that was happening, which I didn't see any of it all. They never showed the size of the crowd. They never showed how many people were actually there. So that's kind of how it came about. I started to think, why are they lying about all this? Why aren't they telling the truth about the majority of the people that were there? And so that's kind of how the ideas began to make a movie. And originally, the movie was going to be called the trouble with free speech because I saw it as a free speech issue. I saw it as the government and the media trying to stifle the speech of people who went to Washington on that day by demonizing them. But as we went on and started to interview more and more people that were being attacked basically by the FBI and by the Department of Justice, people that had done nothing more than I had done, just gone there, most of whom hadn't even gone in the building. We started to realize that these people were being intentionally punished by the government, and that's why we changed the name of the film to capital

Watch it today. If you want to see something substantive about what truly happened on January 6th, got a capital punishment of the movie dot com Nick. Before we get deeper into the movie and to what you've been doing of late, your hat, what is make America talented again, please tell us. Well, I'm not a politician, so I have my little world in which I work and I think my mission is to make America talented again. You know, Hollywood has kind of ruined itself and basically told half if not more than half of America that they hate their guts and don't care if they watch their crappy shows or not. So I am trying to bring back ring talent back to America at I'm a one man wrecking ball doing that. So let me ask you a question that I've asked many, many guests from your world on this show. Capitalism. I've been told that Hollywood is about the almighty dollar, and it's about making money. If that's the case, how long can they last literally pissing off as you said, half the potential audience. When you have these virtue signaling films when you have these woke films when you've got kowtowing to the Chinese Communist Party with the post production re edits of movies like red dawn to remove the Chinese enemy and paint in North Koreans, isn't there a point? Is ideology now so strong in Hollywood that they will go down with a sinking ship or will somebody say a guy's nobody's watching woke Star Wars anymore? Tell us, tell us your expectation. Well, here's my, this is my theory about it. They have insulated themselves from any consequences by now. If you notice, they ruin go into the movies for the last two years. You couldn't go because of COVID. So the box office is now irrelevant. It doesn't matter because what they're doing is they're making their movies for Netflix, or they're making them for Amazon. Or they're making them for release in China. Where you can still go to the movies. And so you're paying a subscription fee to watch Netflix, and that means you're subsidizing everything that's on that network, whether you agree with it or not. And they don't really care if you watch it. And a lot of how Hollywood has worked over the years anyway, is that they'll make ten movies that don't make any money and they'll push their politics and those ten movies. And then they'll make one Avengers movie that makes $500 million. And it'll subsidize all the rest. So they have created a system now, I believe where they have insulated themselves from any outrage that the audience might show and they would literally don't care if you watch the movie or not. They get paid the same anyway. So that's interesting. I hadn't even thought of that because the subscription services are flat rate. It's not, you know, it's not, you know, bums in seeds. The subscription service insulates the lemons, the bad movies, from the ones that are, you know, going to be blockbusters anyway because there's some existing franchise. So you think this could go on in perpetuity? I do. And I think what's going to happen is what's already happening. It's going to be replaced. A new entertainment industry is going to rise up. One of the things I just got through doing is terror on the Prairie, which is the movie that the daily wire produced that stars Gina Carano and Nick Cersei and we shot it in Montana. And you know, basically it was done outside of the Hollywood system. And I think more and more of that kind of thing is going to happen. Well, I'm constantly being contacted by people that want to know if I will do a non union film, if I will work outside the system. So I think more and more, that's going to be the way we go. Well, that's super exciting. I've been DMing with Geno all last week. So we're God willing getting her on this show very, very soon. But you beat her to it, Nick, you beat her to a do you do everything that you could do to ensure that your healthy for your loved ones? Is your wife, your mother, your father, your children, your grandchildren? Are they concerned that you're not the healthiest you could be? There are so many reasons to take balance of nature, but that's one of the reasons that I'm serious about it because I'm serious about my personal responsibility for my health. You know you need to eat vegetables, you know, you need to eat fruit, but very rarely do we eat enough..
Who Is Nick Searcy?
"We have millions of lessons across the nation. Some of them may have been trapped under a rock for the last 40 years. So just in case they don't know who Nick Cersei is tell the world all of our listeners and viewers where you hail from where the Cersei's are from, how you got into this crazy business of films and just tell us that little canned version of your life so far. Well, I grew up in little town in the mountains of North Carolina called color weed colorway North Carolina. For some reason, there was a university in my town and as a child I did some plays at the university when I was in the battle 11 or 12. And so after that, that was I got hooked on it and I just wanted to be an actor. And of course, back then living in North Carolina. I didn't know anyone that was an actor. So I didn't really know how to go about it, but, you know, I went to studied acting in school, went to New York, did the plays to be odd jobs and the limousine driving and all that stuff. And found a way to move back to North Carolina in about 1989 when my daughter was born and wound up getting a part in a movie called fried green tomatoes, which kind of put me on the map. And I kind of had a career after that. So that's it in a

"Good Monday to you. I hope you had a good weekend. The world didn't, just in case you tuned out, I hope you had a good Thanksgiving as well. The last hour I broadcast which was last Wednesday prior to Thursday's Thanksgiving was will you even have a Thanksgiving, or will a lot of people not show up? Because of COVID fears. And every one who calls it you're having a normal or virtually every one that you will have a normal Thanksgiving. I wonder if that's because much of my audience is conservative and they are simply walking around life in general with fewer fears than people on the left. One of the ways to understand the left is that they are scared of life, and not the scared of death and they're scared of life. That's why they have safe spaces at colleges because they can't handle pain. There's a fundamental childishness to leftism, which produces this inordinate amount of fear in one of the safest known probably the safest place in human history. The west generally in the United States specifically. Of course, getting less safe, and given what the left is done to cities, ruining cities and literally cultivating crime. The left cultivates crime. There is nothing the left touches it doesn't destroy. The world is in panic mode again. On the crime, is that the name? Armie crime? So I said army crown. Yeah, okay. Yeah. The president is talking about only crime? I'm curious, let's hear. He's leading that effort. We've shipped for free, more vaccines, other countries than all other countries in the world combined. Over 275 million vaccines to 110 countries, now we need the rest of the world to step up as well. Let me be clear. Not a single vaccine shot Americans ever sent to the rest of the world will ever come at the expense of any American. I will always make sure that our people are protected first. But vaccinating the world is just one more tool and how we need to meet our moral obligation as Americans and how to best protect America as well. The delta variants, and now the omnikron variant, all emerged elsewhere in the world. So we can't let up until the world is vaccinated. We're protecting Americans by doing that. As well. As we continue this effort, let's remember where we stand. We're in a very different place as we enter the month of December this month compared to where we were last September. Last Christmas. Last Christmas, fearing them 1% of American adults were vaccinated..
Wall Street Journal Editorial Board Explains Joe Biden's COVID Failures
"First, these statistical numbers, I mean, The Wall Street Journal editorial board writes President Biden may not recall what he said during a 2021 campaign debate last fall, but Americans should, anyone who's responsible for that many deaths should not remain as president of the United States of America. COVID deaths this year have now surpassed the toll in 2020. Wall Street Journal points out it would shame that mister Biden has done no better than Donald Trump in defeating COVID. Despite the benefit of vaccines better therapies and more clinical experience. The left politicized COVID by holding mister Trump responsible for a disease that was always going to be hard to defeat. Biden said, if the president had done his job, all the people would still be alive. The Wall Street Journal says that was his false as anything mister Trump has ever said. But most journalists and experts agreed with the basic premise, mister Trump had blood on his hands. The world's top medical journals called for mister Trump's defeat. The Wall Street Journal writes about Biden's COVID death milestone. Because of the Trump administration's preparation they say, the U.S. led most of the world in vaccinations. Yeah, mister Biden had no plan to deal with a large numbers of vaccine holdouts other than to deride them. He missed his goal of getting 70% of adults vaccinated by July 4th, but proclaimed victory nonetheless. Biden blamed Republican governors and unvaccinated conservatives. Yet blacks and young people have also shown resistance reluctance to get vaccinated. They don't tend to be Republican, see Nicki Minaj and Kyrie

This Is What You Can Do to Save America
"People ask me all the time they say Charlie, what can I do actually to save the country? And they're like, I do everything I've been told. I watched Tucker Carlson, I bought the pillow, like I did everything I was supposed to do, right? By the way, promo code Kirk at my pillow dot com, the circulation. No, seriously. And if you guys are moving in as a high school to college kids, the best Giza dream sheets you could imagine. But no, in all seriousness, it's kind of one of these questions of what else can I do to save the country? And this is why I think that our turning point USA activists are doing such a meaningful difference honestly. Because you've done the most important thing as a start, which is you've decided to be the same person in public that you are in private. And you want to know one of the biggest issues we have in America is that we have 75 million people a large percentage of that they're afraid to tell. Anyone else that they're a conservative out of fear of being fired? Be fear being mocked and ridiculed, and they're right. And that doesn't mean you shouldn't speak out. So people say a lot, they say, Charlie, you know, if only my fraternity or sorority knew that I was a conservative guy, I'd get kicked out. Or my friends would know. Or my boss would know. And you think yourself, are you really free in that sense that you always kind of have to wear a different uniform or you have to kind of change what camouflage you put on when you leave your apartment or your house? And one of the things that people complain about, most is cancel culture. I hate the term. I never liked cancel culture. I think it's overly simplistic quite honestly. But the reason why cancel culture, whatever, however you want to define it is powerful is partially because we make it so, is partially because we allow the other people to have a lot of power over our lives. Is that we say, okay, I'll speak out, but if it means that I might get called a bad name, then maybe I'm just kind of sit down and let someone speak for me. And the most important thing that I want you to take away from the speech tonight is that you want you want in your life to try to be a free person in the sense that you don't have to pretend that people around you or something you're
Unpacking the Single Worst Poll for Democrats With Pollster Richard Baris
"With us right now is a friend of mine and he reached legend status in the Pantheon of heroes of the Charlie Kirk show as he went to like two a.m. on the night of junkins win and the near win in New Jersey. He's a good man, big data poll, he's smarter, and better looking than Nate silver. It is Richard barris Richard. Welcome back to the Charlie Kirk show. Hey, Charlie, thanks for having me on. Happy Thanksgiving. You too, every time you know I have to mention Nate silver. It's important. So it is. You guys came out with some very compelling new polling, what's going on? I want to go piece by piece. So go through it methodically, the floor is yours. So, you know, the birds eye view here, Charlie, is that the issues are just really coming around to bite Joe Biden. Come on, your show, others, and I've been saying this for months that Joe Biden's approval rating in the beginning of his presidency was artificial. And what I meant by that is that he never received time marks on any issue except for COVID to include the economy and that once it became clear that COVID was a pandemic, and the president did not have that much authority over a virus particle that that would be an impossible campaign promise to keep, and he would begin to collapse. As that has happened, some votes his numbers. So now for the first time, we do have them below 40, 39.8, which is we always do decimals. And that is, you know, trending right along with his COVID approval, which is now a majority disapprove. And he's barely struggling to be in the forge. So Richard, who the heck are these 39% of America that thinks Biden's doing a good job? Yeah, you know, there's most of them, honestly, are Democrats holding on, even though there was definitely fracture this month in his approval among
Author William Federer Describes the Peace of Augsburg 1955
"Show and we're talking about how the pilgrims came to be the pilgrims, the book is titled the treacherous world of the 16th century and how the pilgrims escaped it, the prequel to America's freedom of the author, William Federer on the line. Bill, you were talking about really, it's just amazing to me. If you don't mind backtracking a little bit, because there's so many things unfolding at the same time. So let me put the needle back on the record. Right. Well, the idea is that Muslims are invading Europe surrounding Vienna, 1529. The reformation started in 1517 and now we got this internal and external disruption of Europe. The older Roman Emperor, Charles V of Spain, he has the biggest empire on Planet Earth. I mean, the Philippines are named after his son, king Philip of Spain. And he has all the new world. He's taken the gold from the new world to fit on his navy to keep the Muslims from taking over the Mediterranean. Anyway, he's faced with his double dilemma, reformation out inside and based on the outside. He actually strikes a deal with the protestants. It's called a piece of Augsburg of 1555. I speak a little German and that's a fun number. It's own 1400 proven folks. 55. That's the first treaty ever to recognize protestants and in this treaty is a little Latin phrase that made a big difference. It's cool ratio to religio, which means whose is The Rain? Is a religion? So in other words, look Protestant king, believe it ever you want in your kingdom. Let's just work together against these Muslims who are invading Europe because they sort of want to kill us all. Well, this started a domino effect in the next century where different kings fully different things. And Sweden and Germany were Lutheran Switzerland Calvin and Scotland Presbyterian England was Anglican Holland Dutch reform. And of course, Italy, Spain, France, Austria, remained
Author William Federer Describes 'The Treacherous World of the 16th Century'
"William Federer has written a book called the treacherous world of the 16th century and how the pilgrims escaped it which its effectively the prequel to America's freedom, William Federer, welcome to the program. Great to be with you. Hey, I mean, the treacherous world of the 16th century and how the pilgrims escaped it. Most of us know so little about the 16th century. We don't think of it as treacherous or non treacherous. What are we talking about here? What is that what is it that got you to write this book? You've written so many books on history. It's a joy to talk to you on any historical subject. But I love it when you come out with a book like this, because you really have done your homework and we get to benefit. What is it that why do you call it the prequel to America's freedom? What did they leave? Well, Europe was ruled by kings and it was being invaded by the sultan of Turkey. The Ottoman sultan Suleiman the Magnificent he was surrounding Vienna. So backdrop, the Muslims conquered all of North Africa, which used to be Christian. There were 250 Catholic diocese along North Africa. Muslims invaded Spain and held it for 700 years and they were just driven out in 1492. So just a couple of years earlier, the Muslims had controlled Egypt for 600 years. It had been founded by the Christian face Mark that wrote the gospel of Matthew Mark Luke and John. And then Siri was completely Christian for 6 centuries of angiotensin by the apostle Paul until Khalid Omar conquers it. And the Turks convert to Islam and they invaded to what is today Turkey and all 7 churches mentioned in the book of revelation are wiped out and then they finally cross the Bosporus and conquer Constantinople in 1453 and then finally they're invading Europe and surrounding Vienna Austria the year 1529. So here we have an Islamic invasion into Europe and just a couple of years earlier the reformation started 1517 with Martin Luther. And so Europe has an inside outside chaos going on and the Holy Roman Emperor is the king of Spain. Charles V now the title Holy Roman Emperor means he's sort of responsible for defending Christendom. And so here he is wanting to defend against the Islamic invasion. At the same time, he is inherited all the new world, right? Columbus discovered it for Ferdinand Isabella. And so he's taking the gold from the new world to fit out his navy to keep the Muslims from taking over the Mediterranean
Dine-and-Dashers Abduct, Assault Waitress Who Tried to Stop Them, NJ Police Say
"I was just reading about something that happened in turnerville, New Jersey, Washington township. And this is going to get me in trouble for saying this. Because we need to have a serious conversation about race in America. When Joe Biden talks about the thugs at the at the capitol on January 6th, what about all the violence we're seeing in the streets of America today? Chicago. How about Saturday at the nifty 50s, in turnerville, New Jersey? Police are searching for the suspects caught on surveillance video who are believed to be involved in the attack. Now, there's no mention of the suspect's race. No mention of the waitress is race. Here's what happened. There was a table of 5 customers who were attempting to skip out on their $70 bill at this diner. And the waitress sees it. And she goes out into the parking lot to try to confront the 5 suspects. They abducted the 20 year old, they dragged her into the car and they beat her. Mercilessly. The vehicle headed north on route 42, made a U turn was headed north south toward Monroe township, and then they pushed her out of the vehicle. Somehow she was in killed. She was beaten badly. Because she's a hardworking young woman trying to make a living waiting tables. Now, I'm reading this article, and I'm wondering, why is there no descriptive descriptor of the suspects? Well, we know the answer to that. The media never identifies black suspects anymore as being black suspects. And yeah, these suspects are black. And she's white. Now, I don't know that bad people are bad people. Criminals are criminals. But we do see a dish proportionate percentage of crime being committed in the streets of America by black Americans.
Every Symbol of American Patriotism Is Under Attack
"Was reading an article this morning online from The New York Times entitled redesigning America's flag. What if we redesigned the American flag? Why not? And so a lot of woke people came up with different designs for the American flag 6 different takes. On old glory. They want to redesign the American flag. It suggests this article suggests, and I need to apologize to you because the other day there was a conversation about the the him lift every voice and sing. As an appropriate pregame anthem if you will, it's often referred to as the black national anthem. It's a beautiful Sean. And I told you that I didn't have that big a deal with it. And a lot of people were offended and I was ready for that. I figured you might be. I just felt like it wasn't that big a deal because it wasn't replacing the national anthem. It was going to be played or it is being played before the national anthem. But there is only one national anthem. And when I read about idiocy like redesigning the American flag I'm reminded that every symbol of patriotism every act of expressing our love of country. Everything that we believe in America as Americans is under attack. Then there should be no wiggle room. At sporting events, either. There should only be one Nash anthem.

The Hunter Biden Laptop Story: If It's Not in the News, It Didn't Happen
"Of course, there was a big cover up back in, I guess it was October, so when all of this was discovered that Joe, the Hunter Biden laptop and the New York Post was about the only newspaper that was covering it until they were told like Matt, not now. You can't cover that. And from the last interview you had when and was with you and mcilhenny, there are co producer and your wife, you had said to her when early on when you guys, I guess we're dating and you were journalists together. You said to her and I have actually used this quote and I've given it a credit to you. You said if it's not in the news, it didn't happen. And that's exactly what happened with the Hunter Biden laptop. They said, not newsworthy, so nobody in America or around the world will know that this actually is real. Yeah, you know, yeah, you know, show you how old I am. I said, I was not in the paper. It didn't happen. And so yeah, they decided to cover this up. They decided to suppress this, not even cover it up surprise. You know, we can't verify the laptop. Well, you've got New York Times. You could 1200 reporters actually, you know, there are emails with 6 people copied on them. Go and ask the other 5 people, then you get the did you send this email. And you know, one of them will confirm it. And if all of them refused to deny it, but then you know it's true, right? You can say, nobody, you know, and no one denying that this was a genuine email. Find out, I mean, they spend so much time and energy working out of Michael Cole and ever went to Prague. I mean, you can find out Joe Biden was in surplus or Hunter Biden was in certain places at certain times. And then you can find out people who emailed and where they were. And you can find out the time that he was there. I mean, these are not difficult things you can send him a list of questions. And he can refuse to answer them. And you can say that. And if he's by the way, it's very easy to prove that you weren't somewhere or you didn't send an email. You know, was there any spelling mistakes and emails, were there anybody named wrongly was the most over some email addresses? If these are fake, how do they get the email addresses? This could collapse in a minute if you put any investigative power behind it. But the problem was they wouldn't collapse. In fact, the more they investigated the more it would be verified.
The Danger in Removing God From America
"I want to read to you the proclamation. Of president George Washington. In 1789 on October 3rd this is how he proclaimed that a national holiday. By the president of the United States of America, proclamation. Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the Providence of almighty God. Now do you notice the beginning here be realize. You realize how saturated our origins are, with religion. By religion I don't only mean, of course, Christianity, the specific, expression, or as we correctly note today, in terms of values judeo Christian, in terms of religion, Christian. Values judeo Christian, religion, Christianity, God, the God of Israel. That is the God at this that this society was founded worshiping. If you remove God from the origins, if you removed no, not from the origins you can't accept the few actually distort history, which has been known to happen in your college classroom. But without distorting a history. If you would want to remove God from the the essence of America, you are in fact changing. You are in fact changing. The country, it would be as if you were to remove democracy. Does anybody argue that we should not have the vote in this country? Nobody argues that. To remove God from the from the equation of what is American. Is not a matter of I was going to say in my opinion, and I often say those words, but in reality it is a structurally. Dangerous as structurally dishonest to the structure of America, as if you would remove the vote.
Get to Know Os Guinness, Author of 'The Magna Carta of Humanity'
"Who is us? Where has he where was he born and what has he been doing most of his life? Well, I'm the great great, great grandson of Arthur Guinness, the original brewer, and very proud of our family heritage and the integrity and generosity of the firm down the centuries. My own branch of the family, my grandfather, was one of the first western doctors in China, actually he survived the box arrives, and he went into the Forbidden City and treated the Empress dowager and the last emperor in the early part of the 20th century. My parents were born in China, and importantly for this book, I was a 7 year old in the Chinese revolution. So I remember the day. You have memory? You have memories? Absolutely. And it's important to this book because I remember the day when my dad said to me son, we're in trouble. Chiang Kai-shek has abandoned the city. We were in the capital, and the Red Army's coming in. And I remember the reign of terror began, and I was there for two years under that, and my parents were kept another two years on the house arrest. But the important was many years later I was at Oxford, and the graduate student, and had general one night with Isaiah Berlin. In other great places of freedom, Jewish. And we discovered he'd been a 7 year old in the Russian Revolution. And I was a 7 year old in the Chinese revolution the two big communist ones of the last century, so he compared notes thank God the English speaking people who stood up against totalitarianism, but in the mid 70s, when I was with him, it would have been unthinkable. That America would be tempted by anything like a radical socialism, let alone a cultural Marxism. And yet, that's where we are
Former Officer Brandon Tatum Describes the Driving Force Behind the War on Police
"We obviously see a war on police and it's going in different in every community. What do you think is the main driving force behind that? Because it's not even that popular in the black community to get rid of police. Well, you know, I think that it's political. A lot of people like to promote something that make you feel good to get you emotionally charged, and it has no real positive effect. There is no rational reason to defund police in any circumstance. If anything, they want to fund the police for the things that they complain about. You want to get them better training. You want to make sure they're equipped, you want to be able to hire more police officers who are qualified, who represent the community. So I think it's our political, man. I think that when black people get killed by police, there's an emotional charge, and there's an emotional financial benefit. You get people charged up, people make a lot of money that's invested in race hustle. And I think they use that to get leverage to votes and but they don't have a solid real perspective.
Brandon Tatum: 'These Police Brutality Situations Are One-Offs'
"Yeah, so since all the Floyd stuff, which you came out really strong and you deserve to be credit for that, you were super courageous on that. You know, we've seen murder rates go up dramatically across the country. It's been the fluid effect, basically. With that one incident, now we see inner cities more dangerous than ever. Even Phoenix is having an increase in crime. And this goes to show that bad ideas in this war on police is not just, it's not just something that should be refuted, but it's actually making America more dangerous. Right. And I think that's what anything. You know, these bad ideas from people who don't come from a good, you know, I would say godly place. They don't come from a good place of moral character and love for a country. They create these ideas to get votes and then they leave you at the drive. I mean, like I said, you know, when you look at George Floyd, you know, perspective of reality, that's a one off, even in that particular city. That's a one off. You can not find another case that a black man has been put in that situation similar to George Floyd. I can tell you why God, that nobody will ever cover Tony. Nobody would ever cover that. However, it's a one off. And these police brutality situations are one offs. You know, police patrol, you know, they have contact with all 300 million people a year. There's no research. There's no study that. Can suggest that their disproportionately affecting black people. And so with this one off, they completely destroyed the reputation of law enforcement in America and is making almost communities

"And the quality of the product to it's just like rarely of someone so nail dead to rights on that and then just three and think this sort of the corval talked about for most of the conversation today is that politics in the fear of being called biased drives. So much of what they do. And i think it's important to remember little here because i remember this happening in real time was living in san francisco at the time in two thousand sixteen gizmodo wrote a story quoting a former facebook staffer that alleged that the trending topics page was biased against conservative outlets in stories and that supercharge this coordinated effort by republicans in like People on the hill to say that facebook was biased and it was incredibly successful. Remember when zuckerberg invited glenn back at a bunch of conservatives to menlo park right that meeting you could tell at worst because glenn beck walked out of it instead a bunch of really nice things about facebook. He said that they were behaving appropriately. That they were humble open. They listened and so mark kept doing these. Dinners trump tucker. Carlson brent basell ben shapiro and then like joel kaplan is prominent republican rose to power and so the result is all these political considerations that make no sense When you when you really dig into them like breitbart being called news politico the washington post axios reuters being called liberal. It's an organization that scared to death of being called politically biased and in they're willing to have a platform that is full of misinformation in incitement outrage garbage. If if they're not called liberals. I think that tech executives are the easiest mark totally four pun intended. John there go. I they are the i think they are the easiest mark for ref working because they all believe the technology is beyond politics and that democrats and republicans aren't always right and we can solve our political problems through technology and so when you accuse them of being biased towards one side of the other they take it very seriously also. It's who mark brought in right. Sheryl sandberg was he brought in a bunch of like republicans or at best centrist democrats to help run a run facebook and on at least on political side. Why would i. i think you're right. I think it's not just that they think what they're doing is out is outside of politics. It's at it's more porn than politics and politics in the sweep of history is a distraction from the great work they're doing to build this kind of utopia the other piece of it so i think you're right. They're terrified of called liberals espec- because a lot of their They viewed their staff as being liberal right but the other piece of this and they may have liberal social and cultural values cosmopolitan conservatives. A lot of these people's what they are they are. They are pro gay. In some ways they are Pro equality but when push comes to shove they have conservative leanings. But when i talked to shear frankel who wrote that book about About facebook My question to her was when mark gave up on. This idea of a libertarian paradise which is where. He was not that long ago when he talked to kara. Swisher i think holocaust. Denial is okay because people should see it and and i asked them like what replaces the larger ethic about how facebook governed speech. If it's not going to be libertarian anymore. And she couldn't say an in In one of the pieces. I i thought this was important right. This is what a facebook team member said. They said in multiple cases the final judgment about whether prominent posts violate a certain written policy are made by senior executives. Sometimes mark zuckerberg if our decisions are intended to be an application of a written halsey than it is unclear why executives would be consulted. And so what happens is there's a fear of being called liberal. There's no organizing value or principle until then everything becomes ad hoc everything becomes a debate. Everything becomes about appearances and you end up with the situation where white listed propagandist or at allowed to spread information. Sectarian strife spreads indian around the world. And there's no governing principle to prevent it. I will say you love it. You said a minutes ago that The stories proved that facebook really does know exactly what the problems are. I thought that they also proved that facebook knows how to solve them or at least make them better. Defenses that you hear. All the time from facebook is working hard to solve all these problems but will never be able to solve all of them because these are problems that have to do with human nature and we're just a neutral platform and we can't restrict free speech so these are the same problems that you see in humanity anyway and we're just facebook but that's clearly not what's going on here. Facebook has plenty of tools to fight extremism and we know that because they have used some of them on certain occasions but they refuse to use them all the time or more so i. I thought some of the most damning revelations were about to that point facebook's algorithms pushing people towards extremism and ran a story about how the company created a fictitious user named carol smith who described herself as a politically conservative mom from north carolina within two days facebook was recommending that she joined cunanan groups israel as part. She was arrested at the capitol. I'd say she's actually she's she's she's on the shortlist for trump's veep congratulate scares us better girls going to be on the shortlist better. Carol well of the movie. Carol about i a lesbian kind of a lesbian story involving kate blanchett. They didn't attack with capital. I don't think so. I don't remember. Then what did you think of that story. Facebook spokesperson said. It's the perfect example of research that helped inform their decision to remove cunanan from its platform. Thanks yeah well. That's it was so typical of so many of their responses just one. I really appreciated that. In some internal conversation someone at face sp facebook at. I'm sick of mark answering question. That wasn't asked which is what they do. Over and over and over again they were so slow on q. And on and i was thinking about how they call it they think. Move fast and break things. They are now a government bureaucracy. They move incredibly slowly incredibly Fecklessly around these problems. Because yeah i mean. By the time they removed cunanan did festered into this giant conspiracy. Theory may be one of the biggest ever. It is rendered families like. Yeah we talk about it in political terms. I know people. In my life who've had divorces and now they are co parenting with cuban on people it is a fucking nightmare and they allowed it to fester for so long in same antibiotics content. I mean this is why the this the problem with facebook is not about freedom of speech. Because it's not about your right to say you like you and on or your light right to say. I don't want to get vaccinated. The issue was that facebook algorithm is recommending radical content to people who otherwise wouldn't have seen it problem that is core to the the dna of the product. Just going to people. Why recommend anyone join any political group at all. Let people search for their own political groups if they're interested in and people with like minded like go search for the political group because they're like. Oh well this is how we got rid of cunanan okay. But i'm i'm betting that the algorithm is going to continue to push people to join more extremist groups other extremist groups that not be keen on. And then you're back to playing whack-a-mole all the time there's a more fundamental design fly here which is that the algorithm continues to push people towards polarizing radicalizing content or to join groups like that. Yeah there's a some Daniel philosopher he talks about something called an intuition pump. When an intuition pump is when you use an analogy in a way hides the truth that makes the truth less obvious. And i think all the time facebook to intuition pumps which is in some ways what they want us to think about facebook like kind of inert bulletin board for society right. It's no different than cork board hanging in a coffee shop somewhere where people put things up and other people see them right. But it's of course become this sophisticated operation for delivering information to people at a incredibly sophisticated machine and intelligent machine with agency for delivering information to people and the one thing we learned from this is right after the election. They figured out how they can just literally adjust the dial and all of a sudden far less minsinformation and negative content and being spread and far more accurate and reliable information is being shared and the reason is nefarious. Because the longer they keep you on the site the more money they make and so you have people searching for like wellness or essential oils. All of a sudden they're pulled intellect plan democ anti vaccine content. And all this right wing sort of key. Honor cunanan jason content. It's a problem you see happening across the spectrum and it is a problem of reach Jeff hertz of the wall street journal who love it you talk to an wrote the initial round of stories.

I'm gonna take your recommendation quietly. I'm gonna put it in my draw. Nice say because of an accent. That i can't quite pinpoint so. Yeah you're right to you. Got him anyway. What a wind up. Let's get to the news all right if you woke up to a shitload of stories about facebook this week. It's because whistleblower francis how went beyond the wall street journal to provide a consortium of more than a dozen news organizations thousands of pages of internal conversations in research. I like the They created a slack threat while the journalists and even they were uncomfortable. With the idea of the consortium and so they said i guess we're a consortium now. Yeah these are documents that also formed the basis of a series of disclosure. She filed with securities and exchange commission the testimony. She gave congress and the testimony. She delivered on monday to the. Uk's parliament the headline from all of this unsurprisingly is that facebook is bad. It's bad The company's own research says that and plenty of the company's own employees say on internal message boards all the time apparently beyond that it can be tough to follow the details of all these stories but the gist is that the algorithms designed by facebook push people towards more radicalizing and polarizing content. That the problem is even worse. In other countries that mark zuckerberg both lies and lives in fear of being accused of liberal bias. And that the company didn't do nearly enough to stop the january six insurrection that was largely organized on its platform. Want to dive into all the specifics. But what do you guys think about how this information was released. Did you find it difficult to process all these stories. Tommy yes i so i credit i. I was initially quite impressed with the rollout. That series of wall street journal stories Were there thorough. There were spaced out well. They were devastating. And then the really brilliant move was convincing minutes to do a big exclusive. Where the only carrot they really had dangled in front of naming the whistle blower who then repeated all the stuff from the wall street journal stories and they got second by the apple. Today was too much man. My understanding is that there were sixty. Eight stories consortium get out of control. Sixty eight stories posted today. All embargoed for like seven am eastern or whatever on like eight different topics. I was just awash with facebook news. I could not follow. All yes. And i do think that a fair amount of it was overlapping. Both with wall street journal reporting from the past couple of weeks and from other stories that came out. today it didn't feel like there is like the same division of labor. that happened with some other. Kind of consortium. What what What was formed around Snowden leaks and some of the other ones who passed yet maybe. This is just like the political staffer in me talking but no one has been driving a message about facebook era based on these documents and so it definitely served the needs of and and the and the way that many journalists wanna do their jobs which is great and i'm glad that good for them for so many of them for writing fantastic stories and they. They did a great job. But if the goal of the of francis hogan is to deliver a single message or even a couple big messages about facebook. I i worry. I mean we're gonna try to do that here in this segment but i do worry that it's going to be hard for your average reader to understand exactly what was going on there and what she was trying to say. Yeah and i also think that there is enough in what we learned. Today that had been spaced out over the next couple of days or weeks it might have had a more lasting impact. There's a very funny Graph in ben. Smith's story about the media piece of it all and how it all came together where the various journalists in this Slack room whatever with funky call slack thing select group. We're arguing over what to call it. And they didn't want to call it the facebook vials because that was the wall street journal branding. So the times started fighting with that. And then casey newton. He's very funny very smart tech reporter Said they should call it. The leftovers awesome and self-aware and very funny. That was really funny. However i will say if you don't want the wall street journal to have a cool name to themselves. Everyone should have just called it. The facebook rate. It would've been the branding away from the wall. Street is not just some some political. And i also love to that. Of course the new york times which lives tend as though they're journalists heart. Were like we're going to go with our story. I because some of it was based on reporting together. They broke the embargo. Yeah but mike. Mike is the one arguing as using that branding. He's like super fun. he wrote super pump. That great uber book but I love the little i-love-you little chippy back and forth among journalists. And then no way. That's going to work without them fighting before we before we get into some of the details any other big takeaways overall broad takeaways that you guys got from these stories. I think to Which is actually. It's just complementary to what we learned from the wall street journal one to a degree. Facebook has basically total clarity into the problems that they're causing And and to just how much internal debate and strife there is within facebook acknowledging how bad it is in real time and desperate for the company to do more though We were talking about this before recorded but there is a little bit like. There's a lot of complaining from people about what facebook isn't doing and they all work at facebook and there's a little bit of like if these guys don't clean up their act before my stock vests i swear to god. I'm outta here tommy. Three takeaways one is bad as we think. Facebook is here in the us. It's exponentially worse abroad. We'll talk about that more later to there's just like there's so many instances of mark zuckerberg Specifically prioritizing financial considerations over safety in the quality of discourse and the quality of the product to it's just like rarely of someone so nail dead to rights on that and then just three and think this sort of the corval talked about for most of the conversation today is that politics.

"All dead america. We can all learn something new to learn. We must challenge what we already understand the way we do. That is through conversation. Sometimes we have conversations with others however some of the best conversations happen with ourselves. Reach out in challenge yourself. Let's dive in and learn something right now. Would you please introduce yourself and tell people exactly what you do. Greg sure so drug edwards. And i've been in the technology field since the late nineties. Which kind of shows my age But the the latest company that i've started is called crypto stopper and what we do is detect and stop ransomware. That's actively running on a business network. So my background is in technology. And i've started three different technology. Companies starting out in nineteen ninety eight with a a managed services business that i actually still owned today but in in two thousand and two i started off site backup and disaster recovery company that we started. Seeing in two thousand twelve started seeing these ransomware attacks happening and that happened to coincide with bitcoin coming out and so what transpired and what what's happened. Is that because of bitcoin. It's allowed cybercriminals to get paid completely anonymously and that's why the cybercrime that we have today has exploded so much So as far as my background i've. I've been technologist pretty much all of my life and have started several different technology. Companies the latest being crypto stopper. Right now here in my local area. And i guess quite a few areas just got hit with the reiko strain of ransomware and it was spread through a google document so our hospitals shut down right now due to ransomware. Could you explain to us. What ransomware actually is sure. If fundamentally ransomware is is just a an encryption method that holds files hostage basically. So if you think about if you've ever used an application like when zip or seven zip that that compress and encrypt file. Then that's exactly. What ransomware does they've just take. These criminals have taken that technology to take an encrypt and put a password on on a file and taken that to the next level where they encrypt everything on a network and then hold that password as the as the ransom and so to get access back to your files you either have to recover from from backup or rebuild or pay the ransom. Those really. i mean once it's run and the files have been encrypted. That's the only way to get access back to to those files. I read that. There's a different types of ransomware. Could explain to us a little bit about that. Sure so the incident that your you're talking about with ri- you probably actually started out as a malware called trick bought so there and there are thousands of variants of ransomware out there but the trick bot malware within the ri- euch.

"Research and write this book about sixty years. It's about four hundred and thirty eight pages and hundred some illustrations and it is a brand new thesis. As far as i know no one else has traced a particular city in this would be a wonderful exercise for any of your audience members due to take their city and look at it By identifying this power this force that is so big. We don't even know it's there and that's called. The fuel used to create the kind culture that we have. And that's my face on the back of the book but anyway it says history is simpler than we think. It's all about fuel all the time. And that's what our ancestors learned over that long long long progress toward becoming the day. It's all about fuel all the time more fuel you have the more power you have and america is the power on the world today because we have all that oil and we have learned create a civilization that not only serves aspect it polices the world and we have all of our trade alliances based on oil the very intricate process and relationship. But that's who we are today because when they say oh the richest in the in the world where the nation in the world. Yes because we have all this oil. It doesn't mean that all of our citizens have access to that kind of life support that they deserve to have because they live here. Those two things don't jive and we're learning to realize that so the would age ending in the eighteen. Hundreds it's replaced by the coal age then cried the oil in the early. Nineteen hundreds you say by the twenty twenties that we must stop use of gasoline and replace it with bicycles. Electric cars and electric highways. Could you talk is through. This journey from the would age into the transition needed towards the next step in fuels broad subject But i need people to become familiar with vocabulary of fuel. We need to bring fuel into the foreground of our lives instead of the invisible background where it lives now. So that's why in my book. The first hundred pages go through what it was like to live in the would how we used water for transport and the herculean progress of human bodies against and Current going down river so that we had to push our boats up river. It was a very very difficult thing. And then when steamboats came along that was the beginning of the end for the would age because we had an internal combustion external combustion engine but we had the The last moments of the would age will use wood as fuel in an engine. That was a big moment because we had an engine which was invented in england to empty the coal mines of water so we could get to coal which was our next fuel. If england hadn't run out of wood we wouldn't have had the steam engine but they scarcity always forces to go onto the next skill so To get from the would age to the solar age. You really need to look at the book thumb through legis. Look at the pictures of nothing else. Look at the graph at the beginning of where you see the one hundred percent. Use of woodfuel. Precipitously declines as coal rise is an oil rises. And this is the harmonic background to our lives. So now we get to the beginning of the solar age. We've always been in the solar age but we're becoming conscious of using the solar power that is available to us to replace the very twentieth century. Lifestyle that we've had Yeah bicycles solar panels. Yeah zoom staying home. We're not very happy with that. At the moment where really are going to need to become much more comfortable with it if you understand and global warming is not a belief a belief like santa claus or the tooth fairy. It is not in that category. Those things you believe that aren't true. It is a scientific reality that the polls are melting and a host of other events are occurring and we need to reduce the load of carbon dioxide that we are putting into the air that is the irreputable to truth the polls are melting north pole and south pole. Even though i have snow on my lawn today it's still melting the sea levels rise when the ice melts and this is the reason that there is so much panic about global warming because the sea levels are rising chase that upstream. That's because the we have too much carbon dioxide in the air which causes the atmosphere to warm which melts the north pole and the south pole. So let's talk about the transition period. We're in right now. This could take some time to fully transition into any type of fully supported energy or fuel structure. How can we make sure that. We transition to a cleaner safer fuel supply. It's a very complex process. Needless to say we have a very mature Oil age going on and the leader of that is gasoline. And i call it the sculptress of our ways and means because we've gasoline to create our entire life structure. Here we are in here. I am in suburbia laid out by gasoline. So we don't have the luxury of the thirty years that a lot of people predict because the temperature is rising too fast for us to just lackadaisically move in that direction. We are at shamefully one and a half percent of electric cars on the road. Today i'm just talking about america one and a half percent in order to get to the solar age. We have to be fifty percent. How do we do that. We have to do that. Very quickly and We need to purchase. First of all. Let your pocketbook. Vote with your credit card and buy electric if you don't want to buy electric and you can't or you're not ready to then look at the very measurable. This is so important. The very measurable process of cutting back on gasoline every gallon of gasoline. We burn leaves behind twenty pounds of carbon dioxide. And you go what who says that. Well it's true. The energy information agency and the epa have both measured this.

May Ryan is GonNa tell us when we return the thought it's here buddy. Ask are mandated that we have to be prepared for the right is that you get that mechanism cadaver. Don't listen off off ever noticed it. There you go into the show. Ryan joins us now for let me say this. Let me see this reading. We're going to start with Kenny Kenny Wallace that even though you use the wrong Hashtag TV for too long we what else you can do that yeah I guess so motormouth since Clint Boyer has so many businesses and land interesting Kansas will move back when his nascar no yeah no. I don't think I'm married to a woman from New York and I think that's going to happen. That's not in my teacher. Love Kansas love going back there. Every chance I get love meeting people at the dealership and our community buildings charity stuff that we do there but those are those are trips to to go back a sheet rock business do popcorn ceilings of course new next one okay can heal she. I know I I want to ask them your Kenny. I just thought you might move back like Kenny G. Go back to every chance to give back Kansas from Johnny Aitken Hashtag. Let let me say this. Will we ever see Jack Daniels back in NASCAR fulltime. Maybe sponsoring clint better. It was honestly I don't want to go ahead and call call it. I don't want to blow smoke. It was the greatest driver sponsor pairing that I can think of in the past twenty years who asked that question. Jack says not let his guard dying okay there a Lotta buses out there right now jack. If you're listening never alone without jet. You've got to get back with this guy back the greatest value of any driver ever and I promise you sales. We'll go through the roof. Make It happen Mr Jack Daniels. It was school to see him back on a race car. It was all right Hashtag. Let me say this from Ray. big question here will with the new changes coming in twenty twenty and twenty twenty one and what is Clinton opinion on what will make the biggest impact in Nascar. I think that's the question and that's the most important thing you know we heard the rules you know announced yesterday and everybody's speculates and has opinions on everything you know for me. I want to race in to be as good it is it's ever been that's the goal right goal number one forget all the rest of the stuff the politics and anything else make no mistake about it. We're in the entertainment business. That's my Lia- Pinon and not anybody else's but I think sometimes we we worry about the business of our sport and not so much much the entertainment of of the sport and I think it's a dangerous thing to lose track of that you know when when I look at you know any other sporting event I go. I go go to a football game for for the event to have a good time and watch a football game. I don't go because of anything else. That's why why go so I feel like if this car enables us to put on a better show at some of these race tracks that I feel like we struggle at Mile and a half's in general I'm all for it but I I still believe that that we have hurdles other than a body other than a chassis and other than than fix teams budgets we've we've got to get we just talked about one of we gotta get companies like Jack. Daniels back involved in connected to our fan base because I still believe in a product and it's not just like I've never ever wants wavered from from the product of NASCAR and the tool of NASCAR or how that can help on the business side but the connect to to to our fan basis. It's that's the fun side for me. That's not that comes easy. You're not I mean I. I'm proud of our sport in the.

"That's like your normal kind of thing for people to kinda do also also the lemonade stands whole bunch of over here yeah me and paul. We just stopped eliminates dan. What about a couple of weeks ago yeah a couple of weeks ago. I i was actually coming over to to to do the podcast and then we know we were going somewhere. We were traveling over to <hes> ohio and <hes> on the way in i saw a young lady had <hes> eliminate stand and as we were leaving. I was like hey we got a this is everyday america. We gotta support this entrepreneur out here and she only priced eliminated seventy five five cents but we gave her five dollars each ten spot. You know because you know i just like the effort that's my view if she's willing to put a lemonade stand up and then what was funny as i came back the following week she was out there again like you're not getting me twice now for eliminate wasn't that good takes a left turn. They dropped the dime on her. I get i get it. I get so you're chef right. So where do you like. Were you chef what type of food you cook in now. I can't necessarily tell you the the whole gist of what i've you know signed my life away. He butts i am i'm a chef at a seafood restaurant. Okay nice have been there for six years at least for dislocation <hes> but all in total have eighteen years experience so let me ask you and your restaurant because i just found this out in mississippi and went to mississippi to a seafood restaurant ordered the shrimp and they came came with eyeballs and the neck no and the thing even in the know stingers on now here in indiana. We don't deal with that. Ah you know already all peeled and all that good stuff but i was the first time i'd encountered that is that pretty normal or standard or entered thing because <hes> there's there's there's two different types of cuisines right edible non edible american cuisine where you can't is like hana tailored for the nine <hes> go ahead and say we stomachs rate and in there the non-american where everything is normal besides but you know what i'm saying yes so having having a shrimp like his whole head delivered to you <hes> in other cuisines. The head is actually prized for its <hes> for its flavor because that's where all the the membranes are all the good parts. You don't necessarily have to eat it you can it's edible but you will you would do as you would switch it off and then you kinda suck on it like a quad add ons so bad. I'm not afraid to admit this but i asked the waitress to take all the heads off for me. Earn you tears. It was not happening so like hey. Can you get this for me. Have you ever had a crawl debt no i do. I look like a fake no okay. I don't even crawdads then i would love. We were in new orleans as well. We had a crab royal. Those those are fantastic like like real crab boil down in louisiana. Not one that you go to red lobster or some other place like the legit probably came out of the sea right next door. I'm sure in jersey. You probably get that kind of stuff because you're right there. You know what i mean. We you probably get better seafood there. Instead of us getting out of the stuff that we get shipped here so like lobster and suntan oil like if you're if you're predominantly down shore like asbury park ish or like like just down literally just down by the shore <hes> all those cuisines are so normal because they get it right off the docks their fresh. We also will bill like a boil recipes in my restaurant. We call it lobster bake so it's a half a pound of muscles half-pound steamer clams that get spoiled the whole obser- and gets corn and <hes> all wrapped up in <hes> a whole like ten and then also theriault comes comes with it so that's like the whole meal sounds delicious man. I'm hungry by the way so yeah suggest. What would i really also enjoyed what we were in new orleans was. They had a huge table with the hole in the center so you would just like eat and throw it down in the trash. Can you know what i mean. Just jumping on a huge table here comes on plates and stuff like that so it's a lot different but <hes> i just i. I feel like you know what i'm really interested in and i'm sure you you encounter this as being a chef is i've been here recently been very interested in just it's different people's cultures. You know like <hes> we district <hes> n._b._a. Draft we distracted a player for the pace georgia. His name is <hes> gogo boga and he is from georgia yeah so someone asked him on in an interview like what was some of the <hes> food that he liked to eat and he he was talking about like their most common. Food is like raw eggs dipped in cheese and some other stuff in the guy's like oh. That's just terrible. Oh well you know that's normal here yes so i'm very interested in those different kinds of cultures and stuff and i think being a chef. Obviously you get to be have more exposure to that but just like even something something simple as the crab royal how they do it as more fun down in the south than it is here no absolutely and it's not it's not all that weird actually to feel that because like i said <hes> the way our cuisine here in american. I'm saying here as americans. It's not so broad enough that everyone kinda wanna get. The gist of what everybody else is doing so if if i were to ask you have you guys ever in a foul pieces what is never heard of it okay so so overall just means all the guts and livers and all that junk on animals so like the like the tribe the stomach the heart <hes> mm-hmm law is eating all that stuff yeah and all those pieces aren't really normal per se here right but on every every other cuisine away from the united states that is a normal cuisine like every household has had that so just a different i it's just all perspective. That's all it is absolutely so so you're saying american. Cuisine is not as diverse because i would think with all the diverse cultures coming into america that overall overall. I think that we're probably pretty diverse through but he has diverse in food but i'll just saying mostly in preparation of gotcha were to ask him now an actual american and not once from that came over americans right look. I grew up here right if you were to say. How do you prepare chicken or rather. Let let's do a little thing. How would you prepare chicken. Hey ashley. I want chicken to say your wife's name. You're just hey. Can you. Please check him. Yeah yeah absolutely now actually funny enough. I i was a chef before paid chef actually you you were i was actually i can see you chefs at no fence hosie so do i was making some chicken. I would do some boneless skinless chicken breasts. I would do awesome like chicken stuff in a can. Maybe that probably what i would do now. Not maybe as jeff but you know get some chicken mcdonalds a chance. I was a mcdonalds once upon a time similar to like a sandwich artist. That's like a sandwich artist not to be about it but yeah. Is that a thing. A sandwich artists subway sandwiches. That's true yeah so so so just in general right though some pepper and some salt and and <hes> that would be how to answer your question. That would probably be how i would prepare bake bake. The chicken breasts <hes> see i was. I was going more literal. I would literally be you like i'd take the chicken. I den skewered ahead. I boil it wants it puffs up you then take all the feathers and then once it kinda takes off. If you take off the <hes> the feet i because that's how you usually prepare it. You didn't open up the stomach you take all the guts out and then you fillet it a french fillet from the inside out so you can see everything and then from there you porsche all the pieces. That's how a normal cuisine <hes> would be if you were to ask like a farmer boy out in ukraine or some junk or somebody i'm this is how they would prepare a chicken yet. They know it comes from their farm. Literally will kill it. It's their livestock yet yeah so that's what i mean by being american. It's just we're skipping steps to to get to the to the end product whereas other places literally takes it from zero and then sued and product the we get it like i said perspective yeah. Absolutely i mean here. It's more service right. That's your <music> exists because we have that expectation right. <hes> people can go to the restaurant. It's already prepared you go to the store. Most of it's already prepared because you know there's competition addition there right if i'm on chickens which chickens are going to sell it the walmart or the local grocery you know the chicken with all the feathers on it or the chicken already cut and you know dyson all that stuff stuff so you know i think it's a great point and follow up with that. You know talking about the farmer that cuts its own chicken. That's why they use the heart and the liver and the other stuff because they i mean they have to use everything in one form or fashion well. They don't use everything and i was casey. I was gonna ask you something about this a little bit today so in you probably we know more about this than i know that you know more about this than i do <hes> but i was reading like the percentage of different animals and things that you can actually use uh-huh mike. I'll mess this up but it was like chickens or like forty percent pigs fifty percent or vice versa and then insects are like eighty ninety percent. Have you ever the insects yeah so if i were to break it down. <hes> pork is one hundred percent. You can use it from head to toe literally had to tell the only thing that you cannot eat eat. That has a different protein. That doesn't really break down so much is the actual tow like the like the huff dow when you can't eat but everything support is one hundred percent cow just about eighty five percent. You can edible once he gets to the head part. It's just bits and pieces that you can and get to <hes> sometimes you can. You can eat their tongue. Yeah you can either tongue but like the eyeballs also that's fine bones and stuff though i'm. I'm sorry you can't eat that. <hes> goats is just about seventy percent. <hes> there's something about once you kinda. Kill it. <hes> there's a fast <hes> metabolism that happens that you're not able to harvest it as quick also ellison token..

"Hey thanks for having us. Oh man hey. How's it going so guys now. If you guys don't mind just just introduce yourselves one at a time they can understand who you are and what you guys doing yup. My name is paul paddle with everyday america. Yeah travis shows everyday america. We are the host co host. I don't know we don't get too technical closet. Basically just podcasting live team. You know what i mean. I got you now. Why did you guys call it everyday america yes so when we first started doing research on podcast you know about everything that you read it says take one topic stick to one topic do this topic and that's how to be successful. We just felt like there's more to it than that. We're not in it. You know obviously for the numbers for this out out of the other and i don't really like to be fenced in paul. I know you don't like to be caged in either so i don't like cages at all so we keep it broad man and there's so much division you know everywhere and everything's all negative and we're just focusing on positive stories real people and just talking about whatever we want paul. Can you help me out here. Yeah well and let's go back a little further than that actually so travis kinda came over to my house on a win one day and was like hey man. I've just been thinking about doing some podcasting but you know i've done a couple of other the podcast before and he was like i just wanna get your opinion on stuff so we're talking for our to start talking about like my kid's soccer and his sons son's book ball and just some some politics stuff in sports and different stuff and like visible. We should talk about having wingless everything because because i mean who doesn't wanna talk about some of that stuff some people don't wanna talk about it so they can tune out of that episode. They don't want to but if it gets across to everybody body. That's kind of what we wanna. Do is a podcast for everyday american people that have jobs and go to work and can understand things. We're talking about you know or have medical problems or have kids and soccer or have. You know what i'm saying i do. I actually like predominantly might may channel or rather. My podcasts revolves around cooking because of initia- for so long so i share my secrets kinda on a weekly basis but like like everybody else we have different other venues and so we talk about things so i on thursdays the chefs meal up road <hes> i interview pretty much all podcasters just kind of get to know them how they do it and what they eat because i'm always intrigued about. How do you eat because you know food. I absolutely i can agree with that. Man without food has no life yeah exactly right. Are you guys out. Where are you guys located. Look if you don't mind me asking yeah so. We're actually we're located in indiana. <hes> both of us just east indianapolis so yep. I believe you're a new jersey right or new york new jersey. Here's e jersey. The garden state so pretty right on for the for the food podcasts right now. I have a friend that lives in jersey and she's like oh. It's the garden state. There's so much investable and everything else. I think jersey and i just i don't think garden city yeah yeah yeah absolutely hanging out a window or something you know. How did jersey does he get the garden state name. Do you know i mean is that. It's it's because of the trees. There's there's a lot of trees like if you <hes>. How do you explain it like <hes> <hes> i i think there's one town literally encompassed of trees. If feels like if you have you guys ever gone to upstate new york or something or have you do you watch any kind of videos that you see just rows and rows and there's trees all over like north carolina i if nick that on regular streets it's yeah yeah. It's like everywhere well. We're from the hoosier state. I couldn't tell you what that means so you'd way better than us. Absolutely we have corn but not this year. There's not much it. Is that like a like a regular crop corn over there. Oh yeah it's pretty big corn and beans. They usually rotate out every couple years but for some reason we moved to seattle seattle didn't know it because it's been raining for twenty seven straight days so no joke you cook with a corn at all. It's probably going to be pricey this winter for yeah yeah our <hes> corn. It's not bad corn fluctuates every three months or so so right now. I don't know if you guys knew any kind of food or anything. Were any you know knowledgeable of the food prices but <hes> like wrote in the beginning of summer which is today all the way till about august ish cornwall spike three six dollars. Every other week really is just weird yes so you ship it out there. Whatever it just depends depends on if they get rain or not so like you mentioned you bring. It's going to be fourteen dollars then yeah yeah so we might get an like a shortage of it and every time there's a shortage. The prices go up twenty thirty passes the plane here eight dollar ear of corn sir yeah you mentioned the prices. I don't really know the prices of what my wife spends the grocery store and it makes me mad every time she's kind of what i'm it's completely bullshit right. Yeah i mean i just black out and eat wake up and i'm fat. I'm like whose fault. It's not my fault paul on your wife. That's what i would do. Revolve around the <hes> the purchasing interesting and all that as as as the chef you kinda monitoring everything so a typical half a bundle which is sixty pieces of corn or ears of corn. Orne is forty seven right now this wing dang yeah. I just feel sorry the field yeah you can do that here. In indiana china you can pick it up from the field. That's no joke so health risk in fact percy's infant in fact my wife and i when we got married we actually got married <hes> <music> out in the country and we knew some of the farmers that lived out there and as their wedding present they let us go out there and pick all the corn that we wanted for our weddings we had corn on the cob cooked on the like a hog roaster thing. It was pretty awesome. It was freshly picked out of the field pretty awesome. We had to do it ourselves which was okay but it was kind of cool and it tasted delicious. That is pretty cool. Did you wear a cowboy hat paul. I didn't because i'm not a cowboy. You know that i'm no cowboy so indiana born and raised paul. Were you born. You're born here. I was born in <hes> lebanon indiana. I lived in new britain connecticut for a while up in the east coast so here's here's what's funny johnny so check this out. You'll you'll appreciate this because i used to work for a company that we call the asbury park <hes>. I don't know how close that is to you for jersey. We call them asbury park <hes> newspaper so i worked in sales <hes> for newspaper sales so when i first got to this place the everyone was like we had different areas. We had like alabama new jersey california all these different places so what was funny was. Nobody wanted added new jersey and deal with them. Well listen so here. I was like well. Why why do you guys know one that jersey like they're rude. No they're super root out there and so me most of my family's family from connecticut so i was like i'll take it. They're like you're crazy. You shouldn't take it so i get new jersey. I remember one of the first couple of calls you know is a cold hold call sales but they've worked with us before there are customers but you know so new jersey guy call on. He's like hey man. I got time to talk about this. I was like well sir. I don't actually have time to talk to you either and he he laughs. He's all right all right. You got a couple of minutes. You know so we talked or whatever but what's funny. Is people like well. You can't say that to the people. I was like well. You guys understand understand. They say that to you guys. If you have real thin skin then they like good with that person you know what i mean so i think there's a big misunderstanding of the east coast people well people see them as rude sometimes or or you know whatever but it's just it's just a culture out there. That's how they do it. Fast paced and they like to joke around surround you know and so could you speak about that. You think i mean in my right on with that. Just from what i picked up you're right on knows ahah. We're really sarcastic individuals and so so much so i mean i do it to you know when commercials hey what's out like archana sodas while by and i'm like i don't have time and they're like all on. Just give me two seconds. I'm like i really don't have time <hes> and then if they make me laugh. I'll give ten seconds exactly since it just depends on how you feel about it but definitely <hes> that's how most people people are in fact the one time i made a sale and it was kind of funny was i was talking to this guy. He's like the only time he made it says no. I actually made a lot of sales but he said he was like man. I don't have time to deal with your working on my fantasy football league and i was like i'll tell you what who you getting. I said i'll tell you what i'll help you this week. If you buy an ad from us uh-huh did he bought an ad and then he called me back and he's like all right. Here's what i'm thinking. What do you think you know. It was kind of fun but that's but that's my point in sales. You have to do whatever it takes to try. Gotta get you know to build rapport with those with those customers and on the east coast. Sometimes it's hard. You gotta be kinda like them. You know kind of funny and sarcastic joke around with them and be able to take what they give you. Maybe i east coast to me man every time somebody comes up to the door. That's what gets me. It's not necessarily on the phone because i can just hit the shady anybody but when they walk up to the door trying to sell something i'll just like infuriated decline them like not just shut the door her ono yeah that's about how it goes but maybe not in that town and then he and then he and then every closed door. It feels bad in christ. That's what happened here seriously scolding. That's how it works over here. We're really kind of like now. I feel bad. I close the door. I don't maybe i should go buy those books. Don't feel bad at all. Oh man so. Is that what you do also for the girl scout cookies. No he shuts down. No you see the notes listening signed down the street man much aspect down there and read that side the fifth grade. You can read right. They're not the door he's he. That is not true. I guarantee you. He bites girl scout cookie. I'm kidding way. I love grows cock. That's his. That's his vice right there. You like girl scout. Go all right all right encyclopedias different story some of them. Some everyone goes got cookies though it's very un-american if you're not a girl scout cookie you kinda. That's like your normal kind of thing for people to kinda do also also the lemonade stands whole bunch of over here yeah me and paul. We just stopped eliminates dan..

"Bond to let them know hey. I'm here for you as opposed to having some of those critical conversations or excuses around them to develop their mind which is dangerous. All i'm saying is it's okay if your kids get disappointed. It's okay if that's what they want. I love sports. That's what you know but it's it's is. It doesn't have to be sports no that that's a great thing with sports outlet for it is a good outlet but it's not the only outlet. I'm just saying at home at school wherever it is this it's okay. The worst thing that's going to happen is they're going to develop a little character and when they get out in the real world and fail for real. It's not going to be a surprise to them. It's not gonna be this new thing that they don't know how to deal with. I've been failing since i'm five years old. They're going to be rolling with it moving past everybody else that stuck in neutral the product pinon the problem is is once again. I think this is a a a main point throughout this whole entire. Show is the environment that we are now living in the information age right. It's so we'll instantaneous so for example travis brandon whoever your kids are on their tablets right all of a sudden the wi fi goes out what happens. They're not on their tablets apples but i understand what you're saying what what happens. They're like oh whatever we just want. The whole world has shown that maybe i just have to hear to press for the rest of right. I mean so so my point is with that instant gratification that has now come with getting everything as has. They wish you know there's no translation. There's no way for them. Kinda like what we talked about with <hes>. There's just no way to koper understand that disappointment when they don't get it or there's not a lot of things they don't get if they can't get you know if the youtube is not working well then this is going to work or you know if i can't get the song on amazon music music. I'm going to get it on spotify or youtube or you know i i have these other different outlets that we can go to adults are the same way i do with <hes> being in a club atmosphere this fear d._j. You know where you're just doing. Our long sets to our sets. <hes> you've got these routines made you know a lot of days. Make on the fly but you still have these people that make their way through hundreds of people in the crowd to come up and request a song and it's like just hang out listen to music. I promise you at some point in time. You're gonna hear the song but people want things so instant. You know they can instantly pull up their playlist. They can leave the club go in the car and have any song they ever wanted. Listen to in the car and play it allows. They want to so even adults. You know we live in the we teach. It conditioned yeah. That's all i'm saying. Just be careful house. Good point very good point so i mean that's great job at all the time you know what i mean me wherever day americans we're no different than anybody else. You know something that we just need to be aware of your kids. Kids out there listening. Your opinion really doesn't matter that much to tell you. There's adults yeah. That's why you don't vote my girlfriend's a little more now. I disagree with school back. I disagree with you on that as well. I know that you're going to twist it and go different way. We need and listen blah. Blah butler opinions do matter but when it comes time to make decisions you know have respect for your elders to certain degree. I disagree with that too yeah. I know i don't yeah i mean i'll tell me who runs your house. Well i mean i know who runs my house. Who who is it me and my wife has a family all right so you do agree with me. No you ask ask for input on better. I don't. I don't expect my kids to respect me because i gave birth to them right yeah. That's nothing going but go ahead. I know that you have history and i just i just in my opinion. I feel like that has to be earned. You know for as much as i expect them to respect me. I need to show them the same thing. So oh where i think what you're saying is i'm gonna. I'm gonna ask their opinion but that may not be what we go with it but i want them to express it. You know what i'm saying gives them trusted. Did you say hey your opinion gives that we give a shit about your so you have to act like an adult it right. I gotta i gotta story in you. Guys may have heard this before but up around on my my kids my kids were at a daycare and they had a gym at the daycare and my son who very not very athletic. He's he's a very competitive and love to play any sport no matter what it is he would come home like three or four days in a row and he's like hey real disappointed and sad and i'm like what's going on. He's like well. I just don't understand we go down to the gym but we're not allowed to play basketball and so i was like oh that's. Where did you ask why yeah i asked why would would the teacher say she said we can't play because i said so great reason by the way that's the most nursing reasoning in the whole world. That's that's how teachers get kicked so so listen. It's probably ask for like five times. It doesn't matter it doesn't matter listen the first time let me tell you the story. This is the whole time the story story than let's hear your opinion afterwards all right so i said okay son well. This is what i want you to do. I want you to the next time you go down tomorrow. I want you to basketball. I want you you to ask if you can play basketball when she says no because i said so i want you to say. Can you please give me three reasons as to why i can't because in my opinion just my personal opinion and we need to explain to them. Why does it because i said so. Who who is that person that nobody is a. She's a teacher but what's what's the actual reason say a noah's too dangerous. We don't have basketball aaron. The basketball shoes say any explain to them like they're real. Human beings the real answer. I'm okay okay with that as long as they don't think it's a negotiation because the other thing wrong with kids nowadays you see in the workforce when they you know they're not kids. They're young adults. Everybody thinks everything's things up for negotiation. That's not the. I don't want him to go she. I wanted to understand seek to understand then to be understood so so he if he if it's something that bothers awesome i want him to understand why it well guess what he asked. She sends him down to the principal person for asking too much. We get a phone. I get seven million a million times. I get a phone call. I get a phone call. I'm like oh. I'll be there in just a moment. I'll be there in a minute. Paul has been waiting on this all day i had so i went down there for sitting down there the teacher sending down my son the principal lady lady that runs it and i'm like well wh- what happened here and so so she said well you know he kept asking he wanted to know. Why will he asked for three reasons. I said why not ask that. I said in fact i want to know the reason so she wanted to give me a reason because i'm an adult won't give him a reason because he's a kid and then so then the principal as i will why why can't they play you know because this one person made a decision in their minds he's like i'm not going to let them play right. That's not right and my opinion. That's absolutely not right so i think i think the the if they are going to make that if they're going to make the decision that's fine signed but at least educate the kids talking about education here and this is how we can change the process is explained to these kids why we're doing it that way. On the other side coined that builds communication skills yeah absolutely absolutely with the teachers and the parents don't have those communication skills to teach their kids that yeah i absolutely agree and i think that you know just because you're older just because you're in a position of power. Everybody deserves respect and you're not gonna get it a lot of the times unless you're willing to give it i i completely agree there. My wife isn't happy about that situation by the way i against me just slippery slope in my opinion. You don't want to teach your kids negotiate when they're not in a position to negotiate <hes> but i think in that case it makes a lot of sense gimme a good reason and why it doesn't even need us a reason. Hey it's too dangerous. They don't basketballs you. Can't you can't do it. It's just the talk that out with right why. Why are you guys even going to the gym. Just go somewhere else. I mean do something that you're teasing all these kids. You know what i mean. Look at it all day but i think paul probably got his kid fired up. There's probably more to that story than what he got him. All fired roy picture paul he walked in the dow is ready to go. Tell me why can't play some basketball thought of three questions all night. He didn't sleep. He's like these are going to be some. Damn good questions to answers answers now and those reasons better be valuable. You know they'd better be valid reasons all right. Let's go the off my my kids now do that to me when i say no on style because i said so. That's what yeah. I love it yeah because they expect a better said so shit. Get that out of here. You know matt max o._b. I can we go to the pool. I'll say not right now listen. Can you give me three reasons why we can't go yeah. There's an appropriate you know. There's an appropriate time and place to use the because i said so just judged. I've never heard of one. I don't wanna hear kid hid wining the hell out of here with that. Go upstairs and wind go past anything bad decision. You gotta go pass anything. I don't need to pass anything. I can say because because i said so because i pay the bills in this house. I take care of every there's two reasons if you don't like it then use that to room that not because i said so that's already you assumed okay. We've had that conversation. I'm not gonna have the because i pay no tax absolutely right because i've set that president with them but to good reminder. They have to remind otherwise last time because i said so. You're damn room to run laps on the hill out back. What do you want us. That's always slave driving that believe in choice. Do you want pat or do you want to run up the hill. I wanna run up there all right. Let's go do it then you hit them with gimmie three reasons why you wanna run up up the hill yeah absolutely astle daddy anywhere on saying that sometimes in our mind the we understand why we're saying it can't they don't always because there's still kids think so. That's that's the teacher moment that we're talking about. I give you a hard time but i i understand. I agree exactly where you're coming from giving the age. They rarely understand understand. Probably why or what you're saying it helps them think through it you know if presented the proper way it helps them think through it and you know they're able to have better understanding a lot of times without the without the the more they get that back. Sorry the more that they get that feedback the more they're going to be able to anticipate the reason why sure if you think of asking if you think about our kids and we may be a little bit off topic yes storm in here real bad it was hailing mud was getting a little dry but listen. Here's one thing that's important. You've got to think about like we're all human beings whether there are kids ed's adult or whatever so you gotta think about our kids right now at our ages especially. They basically go wherever we take them because they need to go hails hitting the windows right. Now i love it is every day america baby for during the winter storm. We don't care anyway. We'll storm. There's nothing on the radar yeah yeah so my point is that those kids are human beings right and they basically go wherever we tell them to go but we don't like you said travel. We don't really ask them that. We just we just take them where we want to live that way. I wouldn't wanna be drug around everywhere places. I don't want to go and sit at places. I don't want to sit at you know so sometimes if you're out there trying connected their kids just explain stuff. There's times where my daughter doesn't want to go to every soccer game so we try to hey. Do you wanna go stay with a friend or you know this. Let's you know we can have you do this. I mean just to the open. Those lines of communications trust for the for the later in life sometimes the best time to do that before they even ask right absolutely absolutely they look confused. Look down talk to him about it. Normally you know you know your kid better than anybody else does because that that communication is about education that we're talking about you know. It's all falls back onto that if you see they're not happy at school. Start asking those questions like i say my son was down for three days or whatever and like what's going on and it was turned out of his vow basketball anything to do with anything. I'll take my daughter school three days.
"america" Discussed on Everyday America
"Organization thinks here America's just by showing up in volunteering and just being present in learning and then you know somebody noticed him and Bam so that's that's great advice but I think that's the other thing too is that you people just have to realize that that what they're doing now isn't the end of what they're being like. Once again. I could've stayed at Horizon Forever despite the twenty thousand dollars they were paying US pretty stupid money to do the most easiest job on earth. Seriously legit was like the easiest thing ever you know this is like the first one is GonNa be taking what I figured that whole thing out like oh automative people's voices yeah absolutely so so that's the thing is that people have to figure out what they're I like being comfortable in what I do now because I I love what I do so I'm I'm cool with being comfortable in it now so that's the thing you gotta figure out is like what I'm doing comfortable or right or maybe you're doing something comfortable that you WanNa take a few extra risks right Chavis I mean what do you think about that yeah. Absolutely I mean I'm a big fan of risk <hes> <hes> you know I mean there's there's a mentality there and I believe in that I believe in going to work every day giving your best. I've if you're GONNA do something. Do Your best absolutely I don't I mean that to me. It's not enjoyable to not do my best and did not care if I ever get to a point where I don't care about something. I'm looking for the way out 'cause I just I can't be un-engaged. That's just not who I am and <hes> you know in Paul on this. I know that you <hes> are very engaged in your job so that's not like a slide at all you know you. You know you have this job. You have the a perfect certain circumstances you have all the standards in place and you're doing seven different things outside of it so it's not just your day job. It's you know your life in general like what are you doing when we started this podcast. We wanted to do something. You know. We're already doing enough already. Dad's already have day jobs. Let's let's go start. This pod guesses started off a conversation right. That's right. I think he's talking about being comfortable right and there was a saying in the military in the air force like you to get comfortable being uncomfortable right. I love it right and so with that <hes> when you try these new things is going to be uncomfortable and I think that's what also hampers people from trying to truly just getting after to go to pursuing it. It's uncomfortable for them they don't they. They're not familiar with how this whole thing works. That's right. It's very comfortable to sit at your desk. I was very comfortable to sit in your your current job. Whatever that is but once you take that leap and you get comfortable being uncomfortable it is it's it's free such advantage? It's it's it's Oh. It's a busy and that's I'm sorry I was just going to say you said in job but I mean I think it's in people's lives. People might want to paint their room a certain color but they're too afraid to get up to like I don't know do I tape off the things. Do I do anything. Look resolution you WanNa talk to your spouse about right you WanNa talk to your family about something topic and you gotta get comfortable with it. Exactly you gotta get comfortable having those conversations or wanting to paint this or wanting to just do something different in life I think to to piggyback piggyback off of your quote. One of my favorite quotes is that I think people are afraid to succeed not just because if I if I do this then then what does it mean now I have to do something else right you do does that make sense absolutely and I was going to say like the on stop it like to go off what you're saying and they're like for me the most satisfying moments of my career thus far are those moments that I would all in myself. I don't have all fucking in all my -solutely to where everything rested on my shoulders then like the whole the whole video video production producing directing shooting getting everything right in if I didn't do what I did do the whole day was gonna fail all rested on me and I loved it as the first time I want more more with it again only do the especially when you need it because then you're like dude I can't it's hidden. I didn't Win Academy Award or anything. There was nothing there was no one like they weren't planning to move you to watch this. We get into one eight even say thank you. They're just like okay. You got a job. Yeah we got into the one phone first of all and it was great great experience. That was it wasn't there. There's no huge like line to the right but the fact that we had some I had some level of success going all in myself and I was like I wanna do it again. What can I do next? What can I do now now that I've done it and I WANNA try more to be uncomfortable? We're GONNA put myself in these situations where were down in <hes> bankhead in Atlanta yeah you were there with the former guests of the show again connected yeah I mean Trey are traced. You know like I'm from the suburbs right and when you know went all over Africa being out in the sticks out there but that was an honest way where you get comfortable being uncomfortable because you are so tell us it's about that if if you would see met Trae in the Air Force yes so trey and I met out in California I was I actually both of our first station that we were assigned to following boot camp in <hes> in our technical school. trae was a photographer for videographer and yeah we hit off and beginning trade was at a different spot in his life but we formed a friendship and it was through a fly football team in the same way we did Paul playing beer league softball league softball aw trae was our quarterback for our our flag football team and it kind of went from there and we had kind of stayed in contact and <hes> one day when I was stationed in Charleston down the road I hadn't seen train years and just kind of came macron <unk> somehow our paths cross again oh as well what are what are you doing now. What are you doing and he told me about the work he was doing in Atlanta? You know going into these impoverished communities and it just trying to help people like one person at a time like that's amazing. I don't care what you believe. Whether you religious I don't care <hes> but it was to try to have a positive impact on people's that's like I want to tell that story trae. Would you let me come hang out for a weekend two weekends. Whatever and let me choose a short documentary and tell your story and so <hes> grabbed a photographer friend of mine and we drove over to Atlanta from Charleston and we spent four days with trae driving around to different areas of Atlanta down to Bankhead for T._i.? And cast it from and is no joke. He's no no Joel <hes> so you're running around there with a camera Ryan round the camera and and are you bro. Exactly people will come up in so I had this thing I had spent some time training with some <hes> like special ops guys right in so we we were doing some climbing so he'd taken this climbing me rope and to secure the camera to my wrist so in case we fell or whatever the or if I dropped the camera it's GonNa be dangling from my arm and not just right yeah well. I'm GONNA use that. I'M GONNA bankhead. There's going to be someone comes my camera right like Ed Jerry Rig a hangup to from my wrists to the to the camera people feel like they would come tug on it and <hes> we were out there until you know two to three o'clock in the morning just talking to people you know talking to <hes> woman who had just lived one of just crazy life she was <hes> she was a prostitute. <hes> she was a drug addict and she was living on the streets and she just Puerto Heart out to us. You know you could tell that she wanted to get help and trey was trying to help her and we offer to come. Take a church next morning and you know if you all Ronin spoiler looking for this but she didn't show but <hes> there were people who did come to church with us the next day and that was for me that was the payoff like trae had made a positive impact in people's lives like two or three people and I was there two documented until that story and hopefully <hes> that would that's how it spreads it starts with one person starts with those one to one and so that's what that's where I'm going like. Even though we're down this crazy area <hes> it was such a how empower here's what it was it was and I was so I was still uncomfortable the entire time but by the end like these people they they're all. We're all human beings no matter where you live what your circumstances circumstance are how much money you make what we're at our rural human beings and by the end of that weekend <hes> we were like family down there. We weren't uncomfortable. It's still a little bit uncomfortable because the unknown it's still gone wrong because you know <hes> but they had accepted us. You know some of the people we have been talking to you and hanging out with they accepted us like we were just you know we were just one of them and it was great. It was a great experience so what was trade like inaction in person I mean I mean just because I mean I've seen the documentary had just pieces and I'm sure there was the hearts that led up to that. I mean what what what is your opinion of that. As far as how trey got there where he came from just trained general I mean he's just a force man. trae is a ball of energy and he is able to focus that energy like not not I've met a whole lot of people who can even do what he does with the stamina and for the continued level of energy and I think what drives it is his belief is absolute belief in and what is that he's doing so I take away nothing else from that. You know when you believe in and you go for four. She'd go on yourself like we were talking. Earlier like yeah definitely lives as message. That's for sure so trays has been on our show. It'll be coming out very soon. <hes> it's probably out by the time out by the time you hear this this but if you haven't listened to that one that when we get pretty deep in that was that one I love man I love that show trey and I told I told Travis when when then <hes> we can it's like you're GonNa love this dude and he's just trae used to call so so then Nick introduced me to trae which was amazing trae came out here and met with me and we did an event together and then after that event trae would travel like through Louisiana C._N._N...

No not at all dangerous man uh-huh you've already signed up for a couple of businesses. Haven't you sent me up right so that's that's so let's start there. I guess I guess that would be the most important thing. Is You know we we live in America. This is called everyday America the podcast so so first and foremost just made from your perspective as how important is entrepreneurship for our country. That's a great question. I had no idea what Russia we'd be heading but that's <hes> that's a great question in my opinion in my opinion that entrepreneurism is is it's highly highly important when it comes to the economy in general because entrepreneurs to create opportunity entrepreneurs create jobs opportunity or entrepreneurs creek a that drain. Everyone is looking for but if you're looking for capital flood if you're looking for financial stability <hes> most times people are getting out from jail be from a job and and they're usually working for somebody who had created a business ahead of event had a vision had a concept brought it into fruition and then boom they got a business and the individuals who are working for that business so entrepreneurism. The importance is what helped make America what it is today well. I mean that's what people don't maybe realizes that every person the has a job work for entrepreneur have some sort correct every every job out there weren't entre is created by an entrepreneur. I mean at least initially but I mean there's a lot of publicly holded <hes> companies out there right now that have win a different route <hes> <hes> I mean I think probably most of them started out that way. Yeah I would venture to guess all of them. Have I'm the professional stock trader so I deal with the publicly traded stocks and if you look at the genesis of every major business that's out there. Apple is with Steve Jobs. I mean you can go on and on with with <hes> Microsoft too. I mean you all the big blue chip companies that are out there Coca Cola Pepsi G._E.. They all started with an individual that had a dream in started a business and it becomes so large a lot of them become conglomerates so I did you say that you won't have a business without somebody with a vision in in his taken the wrist and taking the steps for you know spawning that I did and foolish into a tangible item that that <hes> commerce has created so does you you mentioned a dream. I gotta ask you. This might be a little bit deep early on but what does this dream kick over the world. Well now my dad. That's a great question which one of you just outside. That's Travis Jones yeah. That's the could be <hes> well. My dream is family. Guy Is having the freedom that everybody hopes for having the financial security assure you that will give me peace of mind and the ability
"america" Discussed on Everyday America
"Hello, and welcome to everyday America. This is Travis Jones. I'm here Paul pothole in. Chris lights out Lytle. How's it going guys? I'm doing a fantastic. How are you doing? Doing pretty good, Chris. Yeah. I'm I'm doing. All right to just had risk surgery. But besides that everything's great. How's how's it coming along the wrists? What'd you have done to it? If you don't mind me just had some, some bone Spurs taken out and nerve cut out. And then just bunch of inflammation, and problems kind of cut away. So it's just I'm just being week. I, I want to be like, kind of wolverine his, he'll Mike three days. I'm trying to be better who needs nerves anyways on overrated overrated? Now, now, people can say, hey. You lost your nerve and it'd be true bubblegum. All right. So do you guys we're going to talk about something? I know. I know that you guys are both passionate about. I'm a little bit outclassed on this one. But I'll try to keep the conversation coming about bullying right ball. Yeah. That's right in it's not only just important asset. I mean, this is something that lives with everybody. I mean, everybody that we talked to general about, you know, the Chris Lytle foundation, says anti-bullying as somebody has a story about they've been bullied. They know somebody that's been bullied or somebody that's going through stuff. So we feel like everyday America. No, the podcast here, someone everybody out there dealing with this in one way or another. Whether they whether it's the friends family or them. Personally I feel like okay. Yeah. And Chris, if you don't mind me asking just for some background. How did you get started in this whole anti bullying campaign? Well, I would say really kind of started with me when you have ADT four kids now and my youngest son Jake has autism so okay. That can opened my eyes to how different people get treated, and how unfortunate is, and everybody's different in certain ways in, when I just see how that affects people know as a father, that my heart goes out to people 'specially when I hear of people being depressed, maybe even hurting themselves committing suicide Iowa's segment, man. What would you do? You never be the same as the parents, something like that happened. And just a heavier kid or anybody's can't hurt to that level of the older. I get the more that is just hurts me. And I'm thinking, if there's anything I can do to help this, I would like to do, and, you know, so luckily for my son he has a good support system around him family, France and everything, but a lot of kids don't use. You see the effect that that has on people, you know, I'm, I'm not really a person just kind of sits back and think, well, but it is what it is like, if I could do anything about, I'm gonna try, you know, I mean, I ran for state Senate if years ago for the same reason I thought, if I could do anything to try and help the state you in the right direction. Election. I'm gonna try to do it. So this is just kind of different extension of that. If I if I could try do some and trying to. Yeah, absolutely at I want to piggyback off that because ONA thousand stats out there that people like like Chris said, he's involved because of his kids in, in the situation that he just mentioned. But, you know, this affects almost everybody more than one out of every five students report that they bring bullied, such just the people that report think about that. You know what I mean? So how many don't report we don't know. But that's one in five that do report, and then it says, forty three percent of the bullied students, notified adult about the situation really quick. Another your bones will stats out at me. And, you know, I'm not as a up to speed on the bullying thing, probably as you guys, you know, some of these folks that are listening to the show everyday Americans. Right. You know, I know that it gets a lot of publicity. But, you know, just kids are softer these days. Like, you know, I mean. People might think that what would that? Let me throw you those last two stats. And then we're gonna talk about defining what bullying meals fair. Yes. Okay. Working for. Yeah. So so forty three percent of the bullied students, they notify an adult, whether it's a teacher or apparent, you know, but once again, that's forty three percent of that, one in five so how many don't say anything, you know, some people lose a kid to suicide and they're like, well, no, they didn't even know anything was going on. So we miss those ones, right? And then fifty seven percent of bullying situations. Stop when peers intervene on behalf of the student, so we're going to get into that later because that's the main topic that the crystal foundation talks about right there. And that's a huge step, fifty seven percent of the bullying situation. Stop when appear intervenes on behalf of the student, which is amazing stat. So as you mentioned, that's the key pieces, like define going, you said, you know, our kids just a little bit softer today. Right. Asking the question, though. You know, I would say. In my opinion. There's a couple of definitions of bullying because now the government has gotten involved with Boeing, so they have a definition of Boeing, right? The, the school each school system has their own definition of Boeing, then you have parents parents, had their definition of blowing. Right. And then the kids, they have a definition of Boeing to right. Maybe even a bully has the definite. You know. So that's the thing it's kind of an interpretation in my opinion of what defines that will, you know, were a little older Chris's really old, you know. He's right. So maybe he's got no nerve left. I mean come on, maybe bullying in our day was defined a little bit differently. So I guess to answer your question. I think it's all things, I think kit, some kids may be a lot softer. Maybe some kids don't know how to cope with things may be social. Media is out there, Chris, what do you think about some of that? Yeah. I definitely think there's a lot of different aspects of what you're talking about. Of course social media. That's the we can go into how that's different. You know, we were kids if somebody at bullied it was the happened Friday at school. You didn't think about it or deal with until Monday and maybe people forgot maybe they didn't. But I mean now if it happens Friday, it's all over social media. You might have five thousand hits by seven o'clock at night, something we'd have to deal with a little bit different. But that being said, I think in general kids do have a like a less ability to cope with problems. I mean I always talk about how I'm not really sure how old you are traps myself. I'm older anyway, when I was younger is no stranger. When I was younger, it seemed like you know, we had a lot more delayed gratification, for example, when I got up on Saturday morning, it was a big deal because Saturday morning you had cartoons. I mean, there wasn't cartoons Monday through there wasn't twenty four hours of Nickelodeon or Cartoon Network, or when I got in the car, I couldn't pull down a TV in what's cartoons. Are there wasn't a phone there for cartoons? I'd wait. Till Saturday morning cartoons. You know, so everything that was so instantaneous, people aren't used to hear. No, everybody gets a trophy. I think these people are not used to hearing the word. No very much. And they're not used to disappointment. So that being said when they get some discipline, they don't know how to deal with every well, any more. I think these are all consequences of parents who are trying to let their kids and give them what they want. But at the same time is that really is helpful as we think, I don't think so. I do think kids are a little not as able to deal with the problems that are coming to them, because they don't have the coping skills, they've never had to, and that's not really on, then that's on us. But it is what it is. So I think that's a big part of it. What you said. You could call it being softer. I when I a break it down. Look at it. I think that's kind of what's happened. And in as by law, definite the definition by the government states that bullying is a situation that happens repeatedly, you know unwanted. So, so that's, that's a big key. Think about let's say a student in a student have an argument they get pushed while, then they go home in the parents, like, whoa, you're getting bullied at school will know they just had an incident right now. The difference is if, if the kid, you know, was talked to and said, hey, don't do that or I don't want you to do that anymore. And then it happens the second day in the third day in the fourth day, now, that's when the bullying situation comes into play, but me have kids or me. I mean, this is not just a school problem. It's a it's a, you know, an adult problem at work problem, different stuff like that, which we can get into. But if I have a problem with Travis, you know, and we just have a disagreement, maybe he pushes me, and I push him back. You know that's not a bullying situation. That's just a disagreement or an. Argument or whatnot, or does that make sense? Chris sure, drew. So, so does it have to happen? More the wants to be bullying. I mean, to your earlier fact, you know, a lot of this goes on reported. Maybe they don't say I don't like that. Or, you know, go tell somebody to stop it. So what happens when the bullied kid or adult stay silent as it bullying them because they didn't say anything. Well, it, it can be bullying. That's where I was talking about the different definitions. Right. And maybe to that kid, they're being bullied, right? But by the state's definition in these numbers in this reporting, it's not considered bullying, because, you know, the schools get a bunch of reports, and they take a look at those, and they define what is Boeing. And what is not? So then, that's where they report, these numbers to does that make sense. Absolutely a Chris. We're gonna say something. Okay. No. I was just wanted to say how to make you like further his point. Oh, sometimes we'll get people and they'll talk to our foundation. Like, you know, this guy was these two disco was called my daughter stupid. She keeps call. On her stupid. Nobody co Kedah did she call your stupid, like, yeah, I talked to or what happened. She does like, well, she called me fat, and I go, what would you call fat? Yeah. Well, if you call her fat, and then she goes, you're stupid. That's not bully. He can't be if I you can't just pick and choose and take half of life said this, and she sets up the Bakshi's bulletin me. That's not the case. We get that a lot where you getting one parent saying one thing, and you come to find out that, like, that's the biggest bull in the school, you'll talk about several of the people. So you really gotta be careful how you're defying these things in just because somebody calls, somebody named us that does not equate to bullying in before we get done here. I would love to get into the topic of you know, what's the parent's responsibility enrolls into this, and what, what is the school roles, but for now if I just want to answer the questions you have as far as the do you think we did a good enough job with that, or is there something we can elaborate more on defining that because it my opinion there's really no definition. That's kind of my point is it ends on the, the situation. It depends on who you're asking define that isn't it kind of on the person who is quote unquote, being bullied to say, hey, this is something I'm not comfortable with or I don't appreciate that or etcetera accents. And, and that's like to Chris's. Point they have to decipher and say, you know, hey, is this really a bad situation or they just messing around where they my friend owes the intent there to hurt me, you know, so I think that's a big. That's a big piece of it that the in, if they don't know how to cope with that in their automatically going to assume this person has bullied me. Okay. So I have a couple questions for you guys. But the first one, I'm gonna go to is I think Chris, you alluded to it a little bit about, you know, the internet. Right. So everything that you see, on the internet today. Are we setting the right example for kids and for other adults and I give a politics as an example, these people who are supposed to be leaving our country? It's maybe not the politicians themselves but their fan bases. Their supporters we've all heard it liberal snowflakes or those retarded right Republicans, like it's just at a very high level leadership. I'll say leadership, these people who are supposed to be driving our country forward. It just seems like that's really rewarded were bullying each other. You know, on social media in setting this expectation for kids and everybody else, I think, because it here what you guys say. But it seems like the more of that. You spit out the more positive attention, you get will for sure. And I would like to ask you to please us that we're leadership loosely because I don't leadership from those people. Not not at all. I mean, to me politicians are, like, you know, write a step below will you people thought I used car sales back. They just not good at all. I can't think of a worse thing. You call somebody a politician is bad as against, so I don't look to those people as leaders. But the problem is they are out there, and they're on social media, and people are saying them and people learn, you know, not, not just shock value, but the, the more outlandish..
