6 Episode results for "seth baron"
"A piece that appeared in the american mind in february begins a curious turn of phrase slipped into discourse over the last few years references to quote unquote. Our democracy turn up all the time lately and even though a computer search shows that the phrases popped up now and then since at least the nineteen twenties its usage has increased a lot recently. It's something that many people probably haven't noticed and it certainly innocuous enough. Our democracy hardly seems fraught with controversy after all. We all have a stake in the political system and it sounds like a nice way to describe the republic. The common thing we share on the other hand it's striking to notice who uses the phrase. Why should you care. That's the reason. We're talking to seth to seth baron his the author of the peace which we posted to the blog entitled. What is our democracy when the left claims something is. There's they mean it. He's a writer and managing editor at the american mind and an author of the upcoming book last days of new york which will hit in. May seth. why should we be concerned with the term our democracy. What does this mean. Well you know just looking at it. Neutrally we shouldn't really be concerned about it at all. I mean it is something that you know. Presumably we all share in common It's the republic. It's something that hours. But i don't know if anyone else's notices but over the last couple of years especially since trump came into office we hear a lot about attacks on our democracy and then after the capitol hill riot. And you know in january. You know the so-called insurrection. We heard being talked about all the time as a direct attack on our democracy and of course we heard this throughout the russia. Investigation that the russians were You know imperilling. The elections and at stolen the elections and there was another attack on our democracy And it's just a curious thing that you only hear from the left Nancy pelosi says that. Ilan omar says it Basically everyone all the democrats repeat us. And i was thinking about it and it and it seemed like when they're talking about our democracy they really mean it. It's it's a democracy anything that i mean. They kind of have a sense of ownership and like a proprietary relationship to Basically you know what you might call the regime like what what's going on in the country right now and so anything that opposes. It is really an attack on them. You know so that something yesterday. And i don't remember who wrote it but it was talking about how what we've witnessed over the last few months really over the last year with the pandemic is this glamorization glorification of government as a comforter a caretaker As as we go into our individual decline of of poor health financially and physically and this idea that the government is powerful. Is that what you think. They mean by. Our democracy is really our government. I you know. I think you're onto something there i and and it's funny because it speaks to something i noticed yesterday The new senator. The senator from georgia jon ossoff. He tweeted out. he's like well. Thanks to the voters of georgia. The senate has just the most generous you know bailout or recovery act or whatever they call like one point nine trillion dollars and i thought it was so funny that he said he called it. Generous generosity indicate that someone is giving something that his to someone else out of the goodness of his heart and presumably something that will affect him. the idea that a senator is being generous or that the senate is being generous to the american people by you know issuing two trillion dollars worth of debt in our name. It really spoke to the perverse in which the left views the people and the left views the government. It's exactly what you were just saying. this isn't jon ossoff money. He's not being generous. The senate's not being generous generous to spend other people's money So yeah it's very strange Relationship is exactly. It's like benefactor to supplicant. My angelo famously. Said when someone tells you who they are believed them. There is the old greek notion that the logos which meant law and language gives us such an insight into into what we mean by how we say it. This language washington post used. The word set said the biden plan was showering money on the american people as if it was cleansing and healthy unhappy in virtuous it's a very disturbing set of terms when in fact they're actually just returning people's money to them but i think your point is the language these people are using is attempting to co-opt the very concept of government from being that which all of us share to that which their tribe shares and their actions reflect. Exactly that mentality. I couldn't say. I couldn't have said it better and especially the idea that showering it's really like like a king You know throwing coins from his balcony. That's the that's literally the way they see it that they are dispensing the booze And what it what it means is that we need to be grateful and and obey. There's i mean an and in the context i mean normally. I guess you could say oh. That's just political rhetoric but given everything that's happened in the country over the last year. It's it's actually kind of frightening. I think it is an in it. It's sort of reflects a consistency of thought and vision. That should disturb people because these are not. They are arriving at separately. It is as if they are reading from the same talking points and that should concern people A great deal. This is a wonderfully written piece. Seth unfortunately up against a break We're going to have you back Seth baroness is associated with the claremont institute. And i got to say we've never had a bad guests from the claremont institute we've posted the peace and we'll have him back to talk about his upcoming book last days of new york very soon. Thank you my man thank you.
The Importance of Jefferson | PM Show
"So it's that time mocking load. Michael berry show is on the air. Thomas jefferson one of our most important founders. A number of reasons he offered theorized postulated many of the Sort of guiding principles that became important to our country part of our part of our actual political dna one of the things that was very important to jefferson and he repeatedly stated it in letters in public. Comments was the importance of what we would today call media but what he called a press because the printing press was the means by which you transmitted information to the to the public and it being done by journalists was considered by him to be critical to the proper function of a democratic republic. He insisted that quote our liberty depends on the freedom of the press and that cannot be limited without being lost jefferson viewed the press and later what would be the radio and the television now the online community he viewed this as as the safeguard against the corruption the tyranny the national that the natural tendency of mankind to self deal to oppress To assume power and then to pervert it or to perverted ins. But i don't think he could have imagined what has become of what was once our press. Now look to be clear. There have been charlatans. There have been gifters. There have been hustlers. There've been tyrants who practiced their tyranny or hustler gift behind the protections given to the press as members of the press. The muckrakers were not always good people. But they're assumed to have been upton. Sinclair was certainly not commendable. Man although you'd be told that he's the one who is the reason. We have safe meat to eat more complicated than that. The era of yellow journalism. That william randolph. Hearst citizen kane ushered in was an era of big promises little delivery sensationalizing stories bringing the nation to war because circulation goes up. When you're at war people want to know the news matters. And i don't know that we've ever really shaken off That terrible tendency that the yellow journalist brought in but what. We're with witnessing today a dishonest and dishonorable media. I truly don't believe we have seen to this level and that media and what they've done toward donald trump is about more than donald trump. It's about you it's about power and who holds it in who wields it. There's only so much power. The trump era wasn't just about a man it was about people who sought to take back their country from privileged elites on the coasts. Mostly the east and in so doing shatter the power structure that had been taking us into forever wars that had been self dealing that had been oppressing and so the media saw donald trump. And you as this dirty group of people trying to storm the bastille while they're inside. And they feared their heads. Might end up on the guillotine. So what they've done in terms of dishonest dishonorable behavior is in my opinion. The worst it's ever been done to an american politician. By far we have a new updated. Example glenn greenwald who used to be a liberal but has been gravitating more toward. I don't know if it's conservatism. But at anti liberal position. And we're seeing more and more of this I don't remember if we played it on this evening. Show or the morning show yesterday. But i think to a woman aerial scarsella and she considered herself a liberal lesbian for years and then she started realizing that the liberals were embracing critical race theory that were embracing a anti-americanism they were attacking straight white males as being the problem with everything and she said i can't be for that anymore and when she did they had to discredit her her former friends and fans than had to discredit her because she wasn't conforming and that's when she saw them for who they are. And we've seen this a number of times where black intellectuals or gay or lesbian or or immigrant or hispanic different individuals handicapped different individuals. Who realized that the moment. They questioned their political ideology or their fellow travelers. They're immediately cast out and and and and insulted with an attempt to destroy their ability to have a public voice. Well grint glenn. Greenwald is is one of those folks. He founded something called the intercept. That was in the business of trying to expose Corporate and a political dishonesty governmental dishonesty. But he's become discredited by the left because he started questioning them well. He writes about this latest story over and over. We see the central truth the corporate outlets that most loudly and sh- really denounce disinformation to the point of demanding online censorship. And d platforming in the name of combating. It are in fact. The ones who spread disinformation most frequently and destructively. He's talking about a case that i'm going to tell you about the mainstream media as they were for so long called. They're not mainstream pushed the story that trump directed whether him or his white house that the trump white house violently cleared a protest. That was going on in lafayette park. That the president ordered it and that it was that that that the clearing was violent. Well that's not true. He didn't order in fact. The inspector general investigated and a report has now found that park. Police had been planning to clear the area for days to install anti-scale fencing and that the decisions on the ground were not changed because of the president or the white house and their new plans interior department. Inspector general mark green blatt said did not find evidence that potential presidential visit to the park. The st john's church influence depart polices decision making or their deployment. You know in their operation to clear out the part. So that's the big. The big finding of our report is is is the clear evidence of why they decided to do so and when they made the decision and on the flip side the lack of evidence related to the president's potential visit influencing that decision the media. Got it wrong. But i don't think by accident and now it's too late for people who might have been influenced by that or any of the other number lot number of lies the media told about donald trump. Fool me once. Shame on me. Sorry fool me once. Shame on you fool me twice. Shame on me. it's time people realize they lau. Hey the story coming up so they got it wrong. President trump got it wrong president trump again and do you notice always get it wrong in the way that hurts him the most and helps the democrats the most which tells you it's not an accident because if it was it would be fifty fifty. There was no russian collusion. There was nothing with ukraine other than biden and ukraine. And we've got some details on that coming up in the next segment. They got it wrong. The president didn't clear lafayette park. The park police were already going to clear lafayette part. The president didn't walk around like he was carrying and say get them outta here. Let's say wa. i want gone. That didn't happen at all but the media dutifully reported that it did listen to this a montage of the media declaring that trump had the. The protesters teargassed win. He didn't order it at all. President and his team had to do it all over again. Would you have guessed and pummel protesters to clear the parks and the president could have a photo is on washington were peaceful protesters. We have to stress that peaceful protesters out of the white house where teargassed and pushed away so it appears that the president could have a photo just yesterday alex notes. We saw protesters peaceful. Protesters pushed back to the president. Trump could have that photo op in front of saint. John's episcopal church up next the president and his photo op. It turned out. They were trying to clear the area to president. Trump could get a photo opportunity outside of a church and outrage is growing at the. us park in secret service. Police fire tear gas and rubber bullets into a crowd of peaceful demonstrators near the white house. Clearing the way for the president's photo op and so while the president clutch to bible imposed for a photo op outside church. His democratic opponent. Joe biden was inside that shirley carried away. Protesters using tear cleared away protesters using tear gas and rubber bullets. So that donald trump and walk across the street from the white house and stage a photo op in front of a church with the president coarsely clearing the streets by lafayette park clearing the streets of peaceful protests. Where force was used as. I said the day before to clear the president's way to saint john's church for that photo op the president wanted this photo op. And he wanted to disperse. That crowd became a large crowd of peaceful. Protesters cleared out of the park across from the white house so the president could go posed for a photo. I did the police. Why were they ordered to move on protesters. At that moment. Obviously the president wanted a photo op and it was president trump sending a message a message that he feels good about today looking at these images. He wanted to show that he could move. Americans physically out of the way. Do this photo op. Just one day. After peaceful protests were gassed so he could stage a photo op in front of saint. John's church any circumstance to violate the constitutional rights of their fellow citizens. Much less to provide a bizarre photo op for the elected commander-in-chief they lied terribly. And nothing's ever going to happen about it. can you imagine being donald trump. Can you imagine knowing that these people can say anything they want about you. That there is no truth. Humus how angry that would make you. I know what it would make. I know what it would do to me. Donald was a choirboy in his tweets. Compared to what i would have done if they were lying about me to that level and then when they find out because inspector general comes out now and says well he didn't he didn't direct. It was already park. Police were already going to clear that area. I want you to listen to. Nbc news is chuck todd and kim delaney and and they're ridiculous reaction to the interior department's inspector general report. And i want you to hear. I want you to hear their reactions. And then you realize. These people are just democrat operatives. I know you know that already. But it's very important because a lot of our neighbors don't understand. The media is not objective. Not at all when the truth comes out. You're going to hear they don't like that truth. Listen to this. The interior department's inspector general's just released its report on that violent clearing of protesters outside the white house in lafayette square park on june. First of last year that infamous Photo op Of the former president holding a bible before clearing of protesters at the height of the national protests to george floyd murder happened just minutes. Before president trump arrived Four that infamous photo op. So joining me now with details on what we learned in the report is our own kim delaney and so ken Like like everything i i. I think considering what happened on january six lafayette square. That certainly looks like a. It was certainly a bit of a foreshadowing experience. Sadly but what we learn chuck. This is a really surprising finding by the inspector general of the interior department. They took a look at this and independent investigation and they found that the decision to clear the park made by the park. Police had nothing to do whatsoever. They found no evidence that has anything to do. With the president's decision to have a photo op and walk through there and have a photo op at the nearby historic church. They decided the park police to clear that park of protesters hours before according to this report. So a contractor could install some anti-scale fencing and that decision was made irrespective of trump decided to do in fact. There's a moment in this report where we've all seen on video. The attorney general walks into that park and speaks with the park police incident. Commander we hear from the video. What was being said. According to this report bar then informs the park police that the president is coming down in the park. Police commanders shocked by this and he says according to this report. Are you freaking kidding me now. The thing about that episode is it does show. That bar seemed to be trying to speed it up. Once trump made the decision to come through their bar went down and sort of said. Hey let's get this thing moving but the decision to use force against those protesters which remains controversial chuck was not made according to this report because trump wanted a photo op. Now i should also add Chart this report finds some fault with the way that operation was undertaken for example. It finds that the park police wasn't going to use tear gas but washington. Dc officers did fired tear gas at the crowd. It finds it. Many members of the crowd did not hear the three warnings they were supposed to get disperse before the police moved in and it finds that bureau of prisons officers nobody can even was even understood why they were there. Fired pepper balls at the crowd. But he doesn't second guess the decision to clear the protesters. It says that the park police within their rights and this is controversial. Chuck black lives matters. Suing the justice department and federal court over this and our own garrett hake was there that day and reported if you recall that the protests were not violent at that moment until the police moved in and cause violence that was his direct. Bird's eye reporting junk so this remains an issue of we thought we knew is not the reality. Really sorry to hear that. By the way i should note the montage that we played earlier of all the media jumping on that story. Erroneously lying to you was courtesy of the daily caller. They put that together. I do my best always give attribution to the folks who do work to go find audio and put it together or right things or report things and occasionally i will forget or fail to do so but i do think that is very important Incredibly important it's academic honesty so the media got that wrong. What else do they get wrong. Well we find out. Now that when president trump said hydroxychloroquine may be one response to covid and because he said it they had to immediately immediately undercut it now. A new study finds that hydroxy chloroquine along with zinc as the president said could increase the corona virus survival rate by as much as nearly two hundred percent if distributed at higher doses to ventilated patients with severe version of the illness. You know the hydroxychloroquine that they said trump was crazy for suggesting you know the hydroxychloroquine that now the emails to fao ci that have been revealed. Show that he was aware that the chinese were treating their people with wait for it. Hydroxychloroquine which means the media lied about whether hydroxychloroquine was a good treatment because trump said it was and they couldn't give trump any credit. So they lied to you average. The end is saw a fun to say it to stayed my chancer. I've who traveled to Fifty years ago today. Elvis in all uncles then. I made famous by frank sinatra and really became sinatra signature song. I realize that most of you were gonna disagree. But i'm going to tell you because it's my opinion in my. I enjoy elvis's version more than frank sinatra's but i am an elvis nut and i'm unapologetic. I understand sinatra version is a classic better known bigger sales man. I just really love elvis's version. Oh no ramon gis said you realize twenty years from now. People will say justin bieber. I don't think so. I really don't i really don't i'd like to think not no. I think the era of the classics like that is is largely. I think that's why stapleton get so much attention as because he and jamie johnson more of kind of the old school and surgical are kinda more of the waylon jennings merle haggard hind george jones type of of guy. No but anyway. It was fifty years ago today. That elvis went into the studio and recorded that and to my he did not get any writing credit on that what used to happen. Is colonel. tom parker would say to some dolly parton. Hey i will always love us. A great song. And elvis wants to record it. You say great. But elvis has to get half the writing credit which means he'd get half the royalties and most people would do that and dolly parton has described that that was the toughest decision she ever made even maybe then then leaving a porter but good thing she didn't i guess because she made a fortune on that song and it showed a certain boldness and sense of self confidence. Anyway i love elvis's version. If you ever go to graceland which i hope you will a across from grace everything along elvis presley boulevard. There has been taken up by by the tourist the tourism of elvis presley fans and across the way some old cinder block building of note particular interest. Except for the fact that it's they made it an elvis museum. It's a little disappointing. I love in any way you go in and you sit down and you pay ten bucks or whatever and you just watch a film montage of his of him and at the end. If you're not balling and you don't love elvis. Because at the end he comes striding out in the screen takes up the entire wall singing my way. And it's fantastic. Yeah meanwhile joe biden keeps forgetting. He's president yeah he. He said that i was fourteen. He plays at ease. I keep forgetting i'm president. That's comforting because i'm not surprised. Then he keeps forgetting he's president. I'm really more impressed. That occasionally he remembers so the media told us that hydroxychloroquine because trump said that and zinc weren't any good. He's a quack. he didn't know what he's doing. he's a nut. When now a new study finds it hydroxy chloroquine along with zinc could increase the corona virus survi- survival rate by over two hundred percent study has been published by med rx. Iv concludes quote. We found that when the cumulative doses of two drugs hydroxy clarkin and acm which zinc were above a certain level. Patients had a survival rate two point nine times so almost three hundred percent the other patients the study adds by using causal analysis and consideration of weight adjusted cumulative dose we proved the combined therapy of the just more than three grams of hydroxychloroquine and just over one gram of zinc greatly increases survival in cova patients on i am v and that hydroxy hydroxychloroquine cumulative dose over eighty milligrams works substantially better. These data do not yet apply to hospitalized patients. Not on i am vs. We're talking about patients that are pretty pretty far gone pretty advanced covid since those with higher doses of hydroxy corcoran had higher doses of zinc. We cannot solely attribute the causal effect to hydroxychloroquine and zinc combination therapy however it is likely zinc does contribute significantly to this increase in survival rate in other words they don't know if it was correlative or causative but they suspect that zinc was also contributing since a higher dose of hydroxychloroquine and zinc. Therapy improved survival by nearly two hundred percent in this population. The safety data are moot. Study was conducted by saint barnabas medical center in new jersey on two hundred fifty five patients dating back to last spring then. President trump openly touted the effectiveness of the drug and even took it himself. It earned him pushback for medical experts including his own white house corona virus team member dr anthony fauci and political pundits who dismissed his claims and maintain the drug was ineffective which means of course that for the second time in less than a week fout. She was wrong again. Good god if that man flipped a coin before taking a public position he would do better than he does in his experienced.

Not long after enough is enough already. Craig sees the square as a safe haven for criminals. You can walk down the street by any drugs you want. That is what went up to you. Hey you got the money back down and a major safety issue. Because i hear gunshots every night pow pow pow three times in joel inside the square etched disagree. This is a sacred space that everybody should feel safe in and it shouldn't be open Harsh not be driving through memorials. I feel very safe here. Because there's cops here. I feel so. Yeah i love being craig says. He's seen mortar. Just past his front doorstep and claims police aren't responding to calls in the area and he laid right there on the pavement four hour and a half. They call last night times. They had to scoop them up. Put him in a van and taken to the hospital. He died later. Well guess what heaven looks like. I guess that's what liberal heaven looks like. Meanwhile in minneapolis the fourth punk arrested and charged with burning down the minneapolis police departments third precinct building. After the george. Floyd burnings is sentenced to only a little more than two years in prison. According to court documents on the night of may twenty eight twenty twenty bryce michael williams twenty seven went to the third precinct where a crowd of hundreds had gathered at one point. The crowd began shouting born it down. Burn it down soon after a fence. That was designed to keep trespassers out of the third precinct. Building was torn down williams along with other co conspirators but the fence and entered the third precinct building surveillance. Video footage from third precinct showed williams standing near the entrance of the third precinct holding a molotov cocktail while a co conspirator later identified as devan deondraye turner by the way. He put a dash in between the d. And andre lit the wick. The molotov cocktail was taken into the third precinct by turner and was used to start a fire williams later through a box on an existing fire located just outside the third precinct entrance back in november. He pled guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit arson. That's not conspiracy to commit arson. They reduced charges conspiracy to commit. Arson would not yield a fire. It would be planning a fire. He committed arson see. They'd have to sentence him longer. They don't want to have to sentence because the judge said he's a good man who got caught up in something and did a bad act. Is he a good man who said so his mama his momma said he's a good man because ted bundy's momma said he was a good man to such a good man that he lit the building on fire. Not knowing if anybody was inside and could be burned to death hell of a good man. Hell of a good man right up there with george floyd round up there with george floyd grief. Meanwhile the border patrol in texas del rio chief patrol chief patrol agent says that human smuggling has become more profitable for the cartels.

They're going to be boycotting you. It's that time mocking load. Michael berry. Show is on the air the beginning of this year. I didn't make a new year's resolution per se. But i did say you know up. I'm going to focus on my health. I've dropped fifty five pounds of lowered. Bp i got a trainer. And i train hard three days a week. I eat better. I drink less. I sleep more. I drink a lot more water. I will tell you that. If i were to tell you the things that i now find to be the most important. It is drinking more water and getting better sleep. Those two things solve a lot of your problems. It's something i spent a lot of the last year. I've always been interested. But i spent a lot of the last year studying experimenting researching talking to experts. And i. i think that you solve a lot of your problems when you drink more water and get more sleep. And they're actually related. Dana is the founder of sleep since program. She's on twitter as sleep baby. Dana and has created a program. Well what they know. Why don't you tell us about right. Well congratulations first of all on all your amazing accomplishments. This year and sleep is definitely should be a high priority on everyone's list But yes i have. The sleet sense program which focused primarily on babies and children Helping parents get their children sleeping better which then allows them to also sleep better as well as a another program that i've developed for adult who are struggling with some sleek challenges talk about what that program entails. What is what is the goal there for. They are the adults. Let's start with adults. And then babies. Because i have a lot more listeners. That are admirals than babies but some of these adults have babies to my focus is basically on. What are the things that we have control over Within our lifestyle you know so the things that you've probably discovered along your journey is setting yourself up with a specific bed. Time is really important. It's actually the way our bodies. Our body clocks were designed to work falling asleep the same time every evening waking up at the same time every morning is the way our bodies loved to work And please follow that and honored that we would find that we would be ready for bed at the same time and waking up at the same time naturally every morning with no need for an alarm clock. So that's always my first bit of advice is getting yourself on a good bedtime schedule and then setting yourself up for success with a bedtime routine. That leads up to lightsout. Which would mean you know turning off your screens. Not falling asleep to the television. Which i know so. Many people are in the habit of doing but that kind of screen atmosphere going on right before bed. Actually interferes with your melatonin levels. Which is our sleepy hormone. That helps us fall asleep and stay asleep through the night so getting you know an hour break from those kind of devices will help your melatonin build to a level where it it. It's optimal for sleep to come more easily and for you to stay asleep to that night. Melatonin important well without it. You just you. Won't you will find yourself struggling to fall asleep. That's the primary complaints we hear from people who are though on melatonin that it's very difficult to fall asleep and then even if you managed to get yourself to sleep. It doesn't usually last night because melatonin needs to build and and the way our bodies are designed as actually to start sending out melatonin and low level as soon as the sun goes down so by the time your bedtime rolls around which would be about. You know ten or eleven pm for most people. Your melatonin has had this nice billed as the evening whereas on so that again sleep comes more easily and you stay asleep through the night but when we blast our is with all kinds of Light sources from overhead lighting from screens essentially are the worst thing for for our sleep. Then our melatonin is interrupted and it doesn't have the ability to build the way it naturally. What i've read a lot on the subject in in there are many authors who made the point that historically we didn't have night lighting for ninety nine percent of of mankind's existence. We had no way to light the log cabin in the middle of the night of the cave before it. And so as you said. There was a very natural process for winding down. Well then the advent of the lantern with a candle in the lantern then lighting now lighting everywhere and then of course came that the the worst of the devils the worst monster of them all the phone people have them next to their bed. And you know with with coming on with the ghost lighting there. You know you've got lighting in the room a lot of the night and it's interesting because everything i read is how terrible that is for people and it has become their habit and you just have to break it. Don't you do you do have to break it. And it requires a little bit of discipline to start like every new habit But when you start to see the benefits to the quality of your sleep because of it also you know if you're like if if you're like me and looking at social media or watching the news or or violet programs on tv right before bed actually rises laying diety and i. I think we are all safe to say that it rises. Everyone thinks -iety to some level you know and so giving yourself a little bit of a break. If you have like a screen. Cutoff time you know. I won't check my phone past seven. Pm you know it what you get through the little like breaking the diction to so to speak. I think everyone would fine that their evening is more enjoyable. Their sleep becomes easier. I think it's a win win when she get past that you recommend that people stop using the digital stuff. The screen display stuff an hour before they sleep. Because i've heard yeah. Yeah i you know it's a. It's a tough pill for a lotta people to swallow. I start with an hour. If you can manage that for some people that might be the answer that might be all you need it. just Our break but it could mean you need more and you know Some research suggests that three hours actually would be more beneficial that we need that sort of three hour build For our milton. But you know start small and then if it's still not working for you you can always increase your green cutoff From there have you found with adults. Have you found that. There is an optimal time. You know assuming most people probably get up. We're in radio so we get up early but assuming most people probably get up at six. Have you found. There's an optimal time to go to bed before that. Not with not just with regard to how long you sleep but going to bed after the activity start winding down. Yeah you know that's really dependent on the individual everybody's sleet need is a little bit different from person to person. We're thinking now though that pretty much the majority of the population needs about seven and a half at minimum of nighttime sleep. Anything less than seven and a half. Even if you feel like you're doing just fine you're probably running a deficit in in some area You know some people fall more myself included. I more like an eight and a half nine hour night. That's when i feel my best. So my advice would be to tinker or experiment with time until you find your window of opportunity you know. Sometimes we think earlier as better but not necessarily for everyone if your biological clock is more of a night owl then going to bed at ten just means you're gonna lie there for an hour before you finally fall asleep so you know Experimentation i think is the best solution to just find where where you feel your best but also fall asleep The the easiest dana obermann is a doctor and a sleep expert. And we'll continue our conversations about your sleep and that of your kids coming up a lot about the michael berry show allman and it is the sleep sense program. Have you found that there is a magic number with regard to time between when you eat dinner and when you fall asleep yes we know that eating a great big meal and then going pretty much to bed is the worst thing that you could do and You know again this. This varies from person to person. Because it's been too many hours since you ate and you go to sleep. What can happen in those early morning hours around three or four o'clock in the morning. You kinda run out of you know your blood sugar kind of takes a little bit of a crash and that can stimulate a wake-up in some people so for some people. I recommend doing a light you know car complex. Carbohydrates with a little bit of protein. You know about forty five minutes before you go to bed can be helpful for some people to keep their blood sugar even through the night But i wouldn't rule of thumb is about three hours before bed is when you wanna cut off cut off dinner and do you find that. Certain foods aid or hinder. Good sleep. well you know when. I look at people's diets. One of the first things i'm looking for is caffeine consumption and seems pretty straightforward but there's hidden caffeine and a lot of the things that we consume and people metabolize cathy at different rates. And so for some people. Caffeine can stay in your system for eight nine hours. So if you're drinking lots of afternoon coffees and then having a hard time. Falling asleep at night Then that's the first place i'm going to ask you to make a tweak To that caffeine consumption and the other culprit is alcohol so we often think that alcohol is a nice nightcap. It helps us fall asleep. And there's some truth to that because it does have a bit of the senator like it's a sensitive to some extent so it usually helps people fall asleep more quickly but once that alcohol wears off usually around three o'clock in the morning it's going to stimulate a wake up and most people find dan that that wake up last quite a significant a significant amount of time and the sleep that follows. It is very fragmented in lights. So it's not doing you any favors to have that nightcap. yeah That's an interesting thing so with regard i like it really really cold when i sleep and when i when i fall asleep now i tend to. I don't tend to get as much sleep as i would like to get although have really worked on trying to do better with that and i do that more nights but i still most nights. Don't get enough. But i find what i tend to do. Is i wait until i'm absolutely exhausted to go to sleep. So i get everything done so that i go to sleep knowing everything is done which is not always a good idea because i stay up too late but i when i do go to sleep. I don't wake up in the middle of the night and my wife does now. We've done some things we. We've eliminated all white in the room and those sorts of things but have you found some other tricks with regard to when you when you do finally fall asleep staying asleep. Yeah interestingly that that tends to be A problem that more women experience than men that sort of three o'clock wake up And it's tricky because hormones play a role and has all kinds of things extra that women have to deal with. You might want to have her just check and see. Is everything functioning while with hormones. Could there be anything there. That's kind of triggering. These wake up But my my general rule is if you have a wake up in the middle of the night. Don't look at the clock right. 'cause that's gonna set your inside the off Stay your bed for what feels like about twenty minutes and if it feels like you've been awake for longer than that then get up and just do you know I like to call it a mundane activity like maybe Rearranging your book shall for your spice rack or like nothing. That's going to wear choir you to do a lot of brain power but do something. Keep the lie slow. That don't blast your eyes with a bunch of lighting. Don't pick up your phone. That's the worst thing you could do in the middle of the night But just do a light activity and for what feels like about ten minutes and then try go back to bed again for another twenty. Get up for ten back to bed. And the worst thing that people can do was actually lay in the bed willing themselves to go back to sleep. Because that's just gonna raise your cortisol levels your anxieties going to kick in. You're going to go down that worry rabbit hole that a lotta people go down in the middle of the night it. It's better if you avoid those things and just get i don't have that problem so I only knew about but it is. It is something that a lot of people Tell me about and you know you. I always ask people when i'm talking to. Ceo's i'd say what keeps you up at night and sometimes they will literally say this is. What's keeping me up. an immediate is. They can't solve this problem or it's bothering them and it is keeping them up at night but let's switch from. Let's pivot from ceos two little ones. And i know that this has been an area of focus for you and a lot of mommy's Out your advice. A lot of followers online. In in your sleep since program on how to get kids to sleep because they want they need it and they're awful when they don't what is unique to children aside from what you've just told us and and how much sleep they need and getting them to sleep in that sort of thing. Yeah well. that's my sweet spot for sure. That's let my career was founded on eighteen years ago with the cia. I have my own child who didn't sleep well. So that kind of took me down The road to solving solving these problems for parents But the biggest piece of advice. I always give parents is. That sleep is a skill set. You know learning to sleep. Well and independently is a skill set that everyone needs to learn. And so if you're constantly doing the work for your child whether you're feeding them to sleep or rocking them to sleep or laying with them. Until i fall asleep. Then those things become dependencies. Are we like to call them. Sleep props in our world and so then when a child has A a wake-up somewhere in the night. They'll think they need that. Sleep proper that dependency kicks in and they need you to come back and create the environment again for them so that they can fall back to sleep so my main goal with little ones is to teach them how to do this independently. So that they have the skill set they. It's all within their. You know their power to get themselves to sleep. Initially at the beginning of the night anticipate asleep if they have any little wake up throughout the night which is very normal for all of us that they have the ability to get themselves back to sleep Through those as well obviously sugar is something. That's come under attack in years as causing a lot of problems. I will tell you that with my two boys who were fourteen fifteen now when they were younger sugar. The higher the sugar intake the less able to go to sleep they were also affected mood and those sorts of things. You're thought oh absolutely absolutely the same things you know that we look at in adults looking at other hidden caffeine in in anything. They're eating like chocolate or chocolate milk. Or anything in your desserts that might have caffeine Stimulus and sugar. Absolutely we wanna keep that sugar Certainly away from bedtime as far away from time as we can get it because it does tend to make kids you know. Feel a little hyperactive. Her name is dana nobleman. Ob l. e. m. a. n. She's on twitter as sleep baby. Dana and it is the sleep since program sleep. Well dan thanks for being with us. Thank you my pleasure. The michael berry show. Please clap Story broke a few days ago. And and i talked about it about bill de blasio talking about spending five million dollars to get people to come back to new york and the same day. There was a video that went viral new york post i think was the first to put it up and it was somebody playing the knockout game on an asian person who was unfortunate enough. Be walking down the street when some thug absolutely knocked her out violent. And i'm thinking no amount of money you spend is gonna make people want to expose themselves to that kind of nonsense. Whatever you think rudy giuliani. He's widely Felt to have cleaned up a lot of the city. And you did see a difference in what it did for tourism. Well bill de blasio is quite the opposite and steph. Baron has written a book entitled the last days of new york a reporters true tale. Seth barons a writer and managing editor for the american mind and the book is now available as of june first. So seth are you a guy that loves new york and hates what's happened to it. Why right this. Yeah i i would say i love new york. You know i was born here Great my kids here have been here like a quarter century yes absolutely. It's a great city. There's lots of things to do to walk around. There's a lot of energy and it's You know own special flavor. And i do hate what happened to it. we've seen the city grow progressively dirtier The de oh and his progressive cronies have just systematically undone twenty hard twenty years of hard work to keep the streets clean and safe and they Under they essentially gutted the pillars that supported the city's prosperity and public safety You know through their there are pursuing progressive agenda and then when colin you know everything fell apart basically but this isn't just a covert all right. Let's go back. You know the these are policies and trends de blasio. didn't start being goofy. The day cova was discovered nor cuomo Began doing this nonsense related to covid. I mean these are patterns that they've been that they've been a part of and by the way it seems like you. You blame de blasio a lot. More than cuomo. Obviously he's the mayor and the others the governor but but as you're allocating blame for what's gone wrong. I'm assuming cuomo bear some of that as well. Oh absolutely cuomo bears a great deal of it. I mean well before. Kobe hit new york. State was losing population and new york city was doing fairly well economically. That didn't have much to do with deposits that had to do with the fact that the financial industry was doing well and plenty of money was pouring into local. Like you know major financial conglomerates Certainly the cuomo's been responsible. Look into blasios came to office. You came in on an agenda of eliminating the tale of two cities. Is he called it. He said that the main home in new york with that there was too much inequality of wealth Now it's true there is a fair amount of inequality wealth because new york a lot of very rich people And those very rich people pay the bulk of the income tax which is what funds are generous social services. What are your income boxes. well New york city has there's State income tax. Which i think is eleven percent in the city income tax. Which is i think. One and a half percent. It adds up to one of the highest tax burdens in the country. So that makes five hundred grand gonna pay over sixty grand in their local taxes before the irs hits you it you know at that at the marginal rate for the last part of it you know upwards of the in the thirties it's true. No it's true. I mean i i wonder sometimes i put up with it The there's a lot of reasons and this is all alleged to why people are leaving the city but on this question of wealth inequality. Here's the thing that new york new york always promised in exchange for some of these difficulties. There was a lot of i mean. Forty percent in new york city is comprised of immigrants. And those people didn't come here because they thought it was really equal and that they would get to get you know they could go down to the local school and pick up a box lunch for free. They came because they wanted opportunity. You come here nothing and you can make something of yourself. So that was always the appeal of new york. Uh depaz yo. And the progressive ascendency have worked hard to squelch opportunity and try to impose more equality. Even they haven't really good job with that. Either it's and his focus on the tale of two cities quickly became a heck. Took a racial past as you can imagine so. He spread racial divisions. And i mean for instance. When eric garner died in staten island. While resisting arrest de blasios said that He worried his own son. Who's half black would someday be murdered by the police Now this is just a quick test. Characterization eric garner was a middle aged career criminal resisting arrest the boggy of son. Yes well while. Black is an ivy league bound honors student. Who you know doesn't sell cigarettes you suggesting. He doesn't sell lucy's on the street corner obese and resisting arrest right. For some reason. I think devout. Your son doesn't do that. And if he were he would probably know that when the police come to arrest him. He doesn't say this ends today. I will not be arrested So this is the type of thing that zero and his cronies put foward but say you have to appreciate a historian like yourself has to appreciate that that america has a long and history of taking a principle stand on behalf of the liberty to sell loose cigarettes and the man that was his waterloo that that was the moment. He he was brave. Horatio's descending the bridge. You know he's not going to be pushed any further season. You're not gonna you're not going to harass me longer. Well i'll tell you. Some local politicians have taken that statement. He made his and today which he he was saying to. The police who he was tired of being arrested by They've taken that statement to be to mean like racism and today so they've tried to make it into like you know martin luther king or something like that like some bold statements of taking a stance Yeah no it's ridiculous. I mean listen to blasi. Just just this week said that the nineteen seventies when crime is soaring. We're not the bad old days. The bad old days where the nineties and two thousands when crime was going down because people's rights weren't being respected. That's what the bazi you said. So the real problem in new york when people's rights aren't being respected then he's referring to the you know to active Police presence on the street trying to get guns off the streets which worked very effectively and save thousands of lives. Mostly black lives. But that doesn't matter. Are these the last days of new york it happen. Why the decline. We continue our conversation with seth. Baron has written the book the last days of new york. Some don't wanna hear it. He'll just go ahead and say it. Sorry the michael berry. Show Sound place always talking to seth baron about his new book last days of new york and we're talking about what he calls the worst mayor in new york history bill de blasio so we see a lot of the silly things he says and the silly things you know the the minor things he does that are not the major contributors to the the sort of decline of new york but what are the objective measures of his administration Just complete incompetence competence and inability to pick up the trash failure to police the streets but defunding them or or not empowering officers to do their jobs. What are tangible things that are happening. That are making new york. Less nice to live in and visit saw okay. Public safety is one thing. There's been a series of new laws enacted at the state and local levels which yes handcuffed the police and make it very difficult for them to do their jobs The state has bail reform essentially eliminating the possibility of signing bale to people. Most people arranged. Now leave court and go back out on the streets immediately so nobody very few people are held in jail anymore There was a discovery reform. Meaning that All all witness information turned over to the defense almost immediately and this is chilled witness participation in criminal investigations the right to know law Gave may made that police when they're trying to search a suspect have to inform them that they don't have to consent to the search This is unique in america and basically it's allowed criminals to say. Oh well forget it. Then and then they walk away with their gun in their pocket A diaphragm law. Meaning that any police officer. A police officers can be prosecuted if they Supposedly lean on. Someone's chest while arresting them which could have struck their airflow elimination qualified qualified immunity which makes officers personally liable for a lawsuit during arrest if they you know it's it's it during the use of force if the erected you know considered injurious in some way or another there's been a whole series of of these types of Accidents which will make it very difficult for any future mayor to try to increase policing this is all baked. didn't now it's like codify chaos To blasier has made a huge effort to destroy education We do have some of the best public high schools in new york city and de. Oh and the rest of his His crew have eliminated standards. They now have Like there's a very good junior highschool lab school which is now said that they will no longer co teach advanced math. The idea is that nobody you know remember. There was no child left behind well. The the de blasio administration motto. No child gets ahead. Don't want any screen schools. They don't want any like different. You know every class should be the same They see it all as you know. Part of racial justice de blasio has sworn wealth. Redistribution is his primary goal. He said that he wants if he had his druthers he would control every square inch of real estate in the city and determine uses its purposes and who gets to live there. I mean i could go on. And on he's had a whole list of You know attacks. On small businesses stricter regulations raising the minimum wage to fifteen dollars. I mean that took place at the state level. Cuomo is all behind it You know so. A plenty of things that will make it You know homelessness refusal to deal with the homeless and mentally ill You know populating the streets of the city you know. I had a real estate firm in the late. Nineties and my favorite types of clients were corporate relocation folks who were coming from either san francisco or new york because They were leaving a four hundred thousand to a million dollar tiny little condo and you could buy a nice three to if not a four three and and some dirt and still be relatively close to the action and they were just blown away at what their dollars a could do in this community. I can't imagine going from where. I am in texas in houston Where our money goes so much further and relocating to new york. And that's why. I think most people everybody i know who lives in new york like yourself Manhattan's where they are where they've always been and they can't imagine anything else. I mean jim. African has five kids and they live in like thousand square foot place or twelve hundred square foot place and this is the guy who makes a lot of money in this tiny little space. But i don't think they'd live anywhere else. Everybody's got their choice. That's what makes america great got all types of people living all types of situations And you know. I'm not gonna look down to people. Who have you know a big house on a big run on a big lot. I mean that sounds great. In fact i can greater and greater You kind of talked yourself into that right there. Yeah i did But you know the whole thing with new york city. Is the public space right. We've got parts. The streets and people can tolerate living in cramped quarters if they have this precious public space that they can go and enjoy but the problem with de blasio and with the progressives have done They've taken the attitude that the worst thing to do is to arrest somebody so You know people can jump subway turnstiles and smoke in this in the in the in the subway cars and threatened people. They can sell drugs in the park. They can you know do all kinds of do drugs in the park Play loud music. Drink many people on the streets And this is what makes this is really where things get like sketchy because nobody quality of life is a super. I mean the the left like sneer at people who talk about quality of life and say things like oh go back to iowa i mean and they say this to people who were born here and have lived here for seventy years It's it's a very Scary and untenable way to run a city to allow miscreants and hooligans to base could take the vibe on the streets and that's what we're increasingly see happening if you don't have a big yard then you count on being able to go to the park and relax. I hope it's not the last days of new york. It's a historically a great american city But for now it. Sure looks like it. Seth baron from the american mind. The book is the last days of new york a reporters true available. Now thank you. Buddy is letting and good night.

Facing the most explosive conditions they've ever seen firefighters are losing homes and lives across the West at historic rates propel by forty five mile at our wings. Byu counties. Bear fire has claimed at least ten lives with sixteen still missing visiting the scene of this unfolding catastrophe California's governor sitting down exclusively with NBC News a lot of wildfires in your life. What do you make of the ones you've seen this year? This is America fast forward. California. The West Coast of the United States that includes. And Obviously Oregon are experiencing what people predicted would occur in twenty, forty, twenty fifty. But we're experiencing it today California's nightmare. Now, a searing reality for tens of thousands with poems still in the path of flames. Among the nearly thirty major infernos that are out of control today in California the creek fire near Fresno incinerated neighborhoods in minutes. There is no downtime because mother, nature doesn't us out on the front lines. We saw first hand why this blaze alone will threaten lives in property into the wind turbine. The lingering threat for firefighters continues nearly a week after this blaze I erupted this is the problem there is so much dry fuel here the blaze could burn for months with California torchy's you through its billion dollar budget to fight fires critics. Say the state isn't doing enough to suppress that we can get more aggressive. We could be more prescriptive more target in terms of our vegetation management, forest management or prevention strategy land use strategies are technologies on suppression and our personnel in terms of pre-positioning a lot of our assets. But there is there is something. So fundamental that also cannot be denied and that is climate change. It's not just California struggling to contain the flames in Oregon, half a dozen towns decimated when walls afire exploded over the region thousands of homes may be gone tonight.

Tonight across the West lives and livelihoods are on the line as an unfolding disaster becomes a new permanent reality Gulf in the region in ways we have never experienced before. Miguel Almaguer NBC. News, the Sierra National Forest and as you just heard from the governor, this fire emergency is drawing new attention to the role of climate change and promoting conditions that fuel these kinds of blazes Steve Patterson now with more on that from the fire. Zone. The images are stark. The impact staggering wildfires across the west spreading in scientists warn climate change is making it worse. There is indeed clear link between record heat and climate change, and that he'd creating warm dry conditions for wildfires to explode right now, there are nearly thirty major fires burning across the Golden State six of the largest twenty fires in California history breaking out this year adding to the record breaking heat in bone dry conditions, miles of dry brush and densely packed forest at devastating cocktail stoking a historic outbreak of mega fires. There's a lot of densification jason build up the climate is warmer more conducive to extreme fire behavior once was meals out a lot. More people living in potentially in harm's way. vish is the result acres of unrecognizable scorched earth and in many cases, it starts with just a spark in southern California officials say thirteen thousand Acre fire was caused by a pyrotechnic device used in a gender reveal studt in twenty eighteen California's deadliest in most destructive wildfire in history sparked by the state's largest power, company PG, and E., which found liable for not maintaining the forest around its electrical lines in a fire that killed eighty five people experts say more than one hundred years of overgrowth in some force turned trees into matchsticks waiting to be struck. So what we now have is too many trees in our force. So that when fires do occur, they burn bigger hotter and the impacts are dramatically greater conditions have gotten so bad here in that fire season is really all year round. It's why some experts say that prescribed burns could actually cut back in the amount of fuel and reduce some of these devastating fires. Lester. All Right Steve Patterson thanks today to start new assessment from Dr. Anthony. FAUCI on the COVID pandemic and when life as we know it might return it came an exclusive interview with Andrea Mitchell we have two reports on the pandemic this evening starting with NBC's Tom Costello. Eight months into the pandemic nations. Top infectious disease expert is tonight offering a sobering nuclear pan-demic timeline and FDA approved vaccine by the end of the year or early twenty twenty one widespread vaccine distribution by mid next year and a return to normal sometime after that, if you're talking about getting back to a degree of normality, which resembles where we were prior to Co.. It's going to be well into twenty twenty one maybe even towards the end of twenty twenty one meanwhile doctor found she and Dr. Deborah burks are trying to slow a new spread of covid after the Labor. Day weekend especially among people who are a symptomatic at you've been on vacation. If you've gone to a hotspot if you've gone to a party in the neighborhood, if you took your mask off and we're not socially distant, you really need to get tested and test results are coming back much faster than the week to ten days. It took last month the NIH reports ninety seven percent of results are now back within three days in Scottsdale. Arizona, common spirit help is now able to process ten thousand samples. Each day for hospitals in twenty one states results within thirty six hours. We have so many thematic people in the country. They don't know they have code that they don't know that they're potentially exposing many people to it. Also, tonight, a new CDC report suggests small children can transmit the virus twelve children, acquired Kobe and childcare centres then spread it to parents and siblings. One parent had to be hospitalized. Two of three as symptomatic children were spreading covid. We know from modeling studies that about fifty percent of the transmission occur from a person who is without symptoms to someone who is uninfected. Those infected but as symptomatic continue to pose the biggest challenge Tom Costello NBC. News. Washington. I'm Andrea. Mitchell in Washington where tonight the conflict between president trump and the nation's top infectious disease expert is out in the open Dr. Anthony, disagreeing with what the president said in Michigan last night, we're rounding turn you see what's happening. You see the numbers of plunging the doctor Fao Cheat the same day saying it was time to hunker down square those two messages will you know I'm sorry but I have to disagree with that because if you look at the thing that you just mentioned the Statistics Andrea. The. Disturbing. Those numbers nearly forty thousand cases a day in the US and one deaths when people will be spending more time indoors and that's not good for a respiratory borne virus. You don't WanNA start, off. With the baseline that so high another disagreement, those large campaign rallies outdoors without social distancing or masks just because you're outdoors does not mean that you're protected particularly if you're in a crowd and you're not wearing masks and as for what the president told Bob Woodward about the pandemic. Down I still like playing it down, those are his words in its own voice certainly their disagreements as you know, there were times when I was out there. Telling, the American public how difficult is is how we're having a really serious problems. You know when the president was saying something that's going to disappear, which obviously is not the case when you downplay something that is really a threat. That's not a good thing asked about pressure for him to say school children do not need masks. That's a fool's errand. No one is ever going to. Pressure me or Muslim to say anything publicly fat she says, as we enter the fall and winter we have to do everything we can to prevent further surges and not that politics get in the way last year, Andrea. Mitchell tonight. Thank you and in the middle of this current Cova crisis, we pause to remember where we were on this day in two thousand one and remember those we lost honoring the victims of the nine eleven attacks nineteen years later. Here's Jayme Alice. And moments of silence. Sombre attributes that have become tradition.

I'll be talking with twenty Belco about what it's like to run a restaurant during the corona virus. My sense is given what kind of energy I'm getting from the veterans in the industry who I do know how worried they are about things by senses that they're extraordinarily worried the situation that these loans have put us in. It's given us a little bit of a lifeline, but it's Kinda put us in a strange position where we're. Kind of like acting like an unemployment office or maybe an employment officers. So it's it's a very weird position to be in I. Think it's a very dangerous position to be in because I don't think it's very easy for most of us who are trying to run restaurants to focus on what's going to really help this thing survive I just WanNa make sure that people have incomes. That's this week on why is this happening search for? Why is this happening wherever you're listening right now and subscribe?
Ep. 720 - Woke Equals Oppression
"The rules for the first democrat debates are now being made public the four hundred seventy six candidates have been divided into two separate debates by random lot, meaning front runners, Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders. We'll be one debate while eventual nominee Elizabeth Warren, we'll be in the other since all the candidates agree that, the long traditions of American success and freedom, should now be ended in favor of the slow economic and cultural death of socialism, debaters planned to compete in other categories such as trying to appear normal while violating every precept of decency and propriety trying to appear fiery and passionate while being deeply corrupt and utterly cynical and offering voters free stuff that would cost the combined gross national products of the US Europe and Asia, to actually supply, debaters will also compete to show just how committed they are to the strongly held beliefs of the democrat base. So, for instance, the subject of abortion will be covered by a joint ceremony in which one candidates sacrifices, a six month old child while the other candidates gather around in black robes, chanting, the Latin mass backwards in the event, the abortion ceremony actually conjures a demon. Out of hell he will immediately be declared the new front runner, since the candidates have refused to be questioned by any reporter who might embarrass or even disagree with them. There are also rules defining what questions the moderators will not be allowed to ask among the band questions are. Do you have any plans to clean up the city's the democrat policies have transformed into hell holes? Or do you plan to turn the entire country into one big hellhole? So no one will notice the city's. How long do we have to pretend to believe you're nonsense in order to feel good about ourselves? And instead of electing a democrat government, wouldn't it be easier if we will just moved to Venezuela trigger warning. I'm Andrew klavan and this is the Andrew klavan show. Same. Thompson. Zip it easy. Uh-huh. So yesterday, I finally gave up on my shirt for good. Some of you may recall that I stopped attending for a while, because I couldn't stand the left wing sermons. But then I went back and started to ignore the sermons and focus on the old fashioned Anglo Catholic liturgy, which, I liked also the place is five minutes away from me in LA, LA, traffic being what it is. If the nearest place of worship was a radical Islamic mosque. I consider becoming a jihadi just for the shorter drive, but my church finally crossed the line of no return by decking, the place out with rainbow flags for pride month now, you may think it's strange. I find this offensive. I've always believed really since childhood that gay people record, but natural little piece of God's creation and deserve equal rights and respect the churches in Hollywood and has plenty of lovely gay people in attendance. And that doesn't bother me one bit. In fact, I can't remember giving it a thought all are welcome at God's table. Just like when he walked among us, but the church is not there to celebrate your sexuality. It's not there to affirm the one review. It's there to preach Christ. Crucified, which includes an under. Standing of original sin, a good subtitle for the church might be crucifiers are us one more succinctly, you suck the churches there to help you understand your inherent sinfulness and the amazing grace of your salvation, it stands, not with the world in the latest woke opinions, but against the world and above the world, and it includes people who disagree with you on your most dearly, held beliefs left and right in all honesty. I don't even like seen an American flag in a church because God comes before country, and if ever America becomes the kind of country that oppresses religious people in it might I'm clinging to the cross not hugging the flag. But right now I can accept an American flag or state flag and churches a nod to the earthly. Authorities from God is appointed to protect the right to worship. But what is the rainbow me? It does not just mean everyone's included. It means all behaviors are accepted and none is criticized. It means if you don't approve of certain behaviors shut up. It means if you've you the two genders as a gift from God shut up it means. Our political view of the world is operatives here. Not yours. The rainbow has become a sign of woke oppression. You remember the story of Noah's ark God destroyed the world by flood than put a rainbow in the sky to show. He would never do that again. Now, many people know this, but the rainbow was supposed to signify, God's war, bow. It was a sign that God has hung his war, bow up and wouldn't unleashes hours of destruction on mankind again, the left has decided that it can do what God will not it can take that bow down to make war on natural man and natural law, especially that central fact about humanity, the male female Yunyang divide the left rainbow is the war, bow bent on the abolition of man. And that's what we'll be talking about in the sec. But first, let's talk about nets sweet as I've told you before when you look at me, you're not just looking at gorgeous specimen of humanity.

And of course, the first thing you want to know starting a business. How do I spell cliven to get all this great stuff? It's K. L A, V, A N. So do you remember Toy Story three Toy Story three, I think is one of the best movies of the last thirty years, it really is a terrific film. I commented on how I think, in the LA times, I wrote a piece about how conservative, it was the director wrote me, an angry letters and keep your politics out of my movies, but it's so obvious. It is such an obvious, free enterprise unwound, freedom story. You remember the toys have been there. Their owner Andy has gone to college, and they feel deserted, and they feel abandoned and he gives them away. And so they are sent to this place. I think it's called Sunnyside. Is that what it is? I think it's called the Sunnyside daycare Sunnyside daycare with the daycare kids can come and play with the toys, and this grandfatherly bear comes out and says it's great because nobody owns you here. There's no ownership and there's a rainbow on the wall. And one of the dumber toys says, oh, look is a rainbow. Everything must be great here and. That's the way you're supposed to feel about the rainbow supposed to be about inclusion, but the thing about inclusion is, if inclusion is your only value if the only values that everyone should be included. And I'm in favor of inclusion, I think, if you include people, but you include them under the aegis of an idea, and that idea is not inclusion is not just inclusion, it's freedom is freedom. Liberty to make choices to seek virtue to seek happiness which comes through virtue. So if the only value is inclusion than the only bad thing is criticizing people are saying something is wrong saying, you do something wrong, or I don't like this, or this. I don't like you. I don't like we are whatever whatever it is you want to say, but those are the things that define us. And if you have a world that is free values, right? Then you have if you have a world where values are illegal than you're illegal, people are illegal because people are defined by their values and by their ideas. And by the things they think about the world and how the world is, you know, it's funny I was. Was just talking about this the other day in that in the movie business, I was asked a lot of times to right. Go stories and to write scary stories and I always used to judge a story by whether or not you were rooting for the girl to get away from the guy with the knife or whether you were rooting for the guy with the knife, because he thought it would be exciting to watch a girl get butchered, and I never wanted to write those stories because I thought they were wrong. I thought they were immoral. It's immoral story and it's a false story is not in keeping with the true moral universe as that moral universe stands, whether you like it or not, even if everybody agrees that it's fun to watch girl. Get butchered. It's wrong. And so I those are the stories I didn't want to right now. You know, we, we were talking about censorship on the backstage with Dave Rubin and I was saying during the backstage would Ajoy it is to me to disagree with people, and argue with people of goodwill, and smoke and drink while you do it, and then maybe change your mind, or maybe change their mind, or what, however, it turns out, or at least have something new to think about that's one of the great joys white. And when we were talking about all the censorship, that's going on all the knocking people off Twitter and social media, and calling people hateful and defining any idea that disagrees with the left is hateful. And then saying, well, hate speech needs to be banned. So therefore any idea that disagrees with the left needs to be banned. And I said today after the show, I said, what, what world exactly do they want? What is what does that world? Look like to them, you know what? What did they say? What do they think is going to happen, when they when they've won because I know what the world I want looks like it looks like a world of communities communities with different values some communities, I might not want to live in, because I don't like their Val. People with different values. Some people might not want to know because I don't like their values or some people, I know even though I don't like their values whatever it is. It's a world of freedom, it's world of individuality. It is a world of, of true difference, because really, you're not that different from if your skin happens to be Brown or yellow, yet doesn't really make any different from me. What makes you different from me of the things that you, hold dear? And the things that you believe. And so that's the world. I want a world of difference. But I- saying today's like ultimately this world in which everybody who disagrees with me is hateful. He's a world of eternal oppression. We've seen this before we saw the Taliban, they come in, and they take over place. And they say we need to we need to run Afghantistan. But then once they run Afghanistan. It's just endless death. It's endless killing. Why? Because there's only one right thing. There's not a, a, a, a broad array of ideas abroad, away array of ways to worship. Even if some of them are wrong, even if some of them are mistaken, there's not like a kind of. The whole panoply of, of creation, that God has made, I've always thought that God has a lot more creative than we want him to be. You know, we wanted to say, well, don't make that don't make this guys having a lot more fun than we are. I think. And I thought, well, what, what does that we're look like? And here's a I'm going to give you a picture of what it looks like in just a second. I, I want to talk about. I think this is a new sponsor. I'm not sure we've had the sponsor before I love it, though door. Dash I've talked all the time about the traffic in LA. And sometimes, if I come home, especially if my way my case with my wife isn't there. If my wife isn't there long enough, I'll just starve to death, but with door. Dash you get connected to all your favorite restaurants in your city. Not just LA. It's anywhere you needed ordering.

These guys are asleep in the bay Chipotle lay to poli. Is that right? Right. Obviously I eaten there and action, the food is actually pretty good. Of the things I want to know. All right. So what does the world look like when we're so woke and so accepting that to disagree is a thought crime, college fix a great website, which goes around collecting, some of the injustices, that are committed in college campuses on the grounds of diversity on the grounds of woke nece on the grounds of loving acceptance of all people, which is another word for intolerance. They have a picture from Scotland the teacher in Scotland, who is the most, you know, white male white male, you can imagine. Right. He just looks like the kind of average old fashioned guy. He put online about all the wonderful different genders. There are a kid who seems to be an American kid by the sound of his accident comes in says no, they're only two genders and the guy throws him out of class. But listen to what he said, I'm gonna win. Tender and there's going to be as my opinion on that Pinon, which is acceptable in the school, Moffitt yours, which you have seen that, that's new sustained as any other than meal, female is not just two genders. The pending I get I get it done. Choosing to make an issue of this 'cause I should really go into that was you'd opportunity to keep quiet. You made issue on the website. You said all this website doesn't have more than money. You clearly given an opportunity not to pursue it. You chose to do so. Yeah, because I think it's you chose to do so, yes. That's a key question you chose to do. So I think it's silly tough anything other than to gender so that will Kate anything these keep that opinion to your own has. Thank you, not. And so you got to put your opinion on closing. Michael, I am not mine. Sustains not quitting, my opinion and not putting my opinion out. I have stayed in what is national school of thought the policy okay was not scientific whatsoever. Not every policy a scientific, it's brilliant. Or what a first of all, he I gave you an opportunity to be silent again. I gave you a chance to shine up. What's wrong with you? I gave you a chance to shut up non express your opinion, but it's not who he says, I'm not expressing my opinion. This is national authority in the kid, says, well, saying there's more than two genders is not scientific and says, they'll have to be scientific, two, plus two equals what the party says it will equal and just to show. I mean look this is happening in the UK, but we all know this stuff can come here. And we all know also that the left's learn uring leaning is toward European style, socialist thority, just to, to let you know what's happening there. Here's from the New York Times, a former newspaper gender stereotypes are banned in British advertising men, unable to change diapers, women cleaning, while men kick their feet up on the couch. Women having trouble with parking reality. In other words, scenes, like these which play on. Under stereotypes are now banned in British advertisements. Britain's advertising regulator announced the changes in December, but companies were given a six month agenda, a six month period before they took effect. They were given an opportunity to stay quiet. The UK's advertising standards authority said in a statement that it will also ban ads that connect physical features with success in the romantic or social spheres banning reality assigned, stereotypical personality, traits, two boys and girls, such as bravery for boys and tenderness for girls. God forbid, there should be an tender girls or brave boys suggests that new mothers should prioritize their looks or home cleanliness over their emotional, health and mock men for being bad at stereotypically feminine. Tasks such as vacuuming, washing clothes, apparently, I had a pow who was a comedy writer who was far left way to the left. And he went said to me men, trying to change diapers is funny, women changing diapers. Not funny. It just funny. You know that's why three men and a baby three men and a baby. The title is funny. You know, you have to say anything more you get it. Why all of evolution is made to build women to nurture children. That is what they are built for. I'm not saying this what they have to do their free agency. A free moral spiritual. People can choose not to do it, but they are built for men or not the guidelines were developed after a report from the regulator found the gender stereotypical imagery and rhetoric can lead to unequal gender outcomes in public and private aspects or people's lives. So I just want to note also that one of the things that I harp on all the time is the administrative state and how the power has been given by congress, congress has given away its power, which is unconstitutional in and of itself. By the way, congress does not have the right to delegate its power, according to the constitution. It is, it's power is delegated by us to congress. They don't have the right to re delegate it to these authorities. But that's what they've done. They now have a system by which congress says clean up the air magically make the air cleared. And then the EPA says, well, that gives us the right to come into your home and tell you not to smoke that gives. Us the right to do this or not, you know, to, to have power over you pass laws and then try you, if you violate those laws and then the place that you have to appeal to is us. They become judge jury executioner. It is a complete destruction of the separation of powers, a complete destruction of delegated authority. That's what's happening that the people who banned this in Britain, they're not parliament parliament didn't pass a law saying parliament delegated. There are thirty. Now there you have a different form of government. But still we are moving there. We have moved their here we have gutted the constitution to that degree. So what, what is going on? This is when I said the abolition of man's from a CS Lewis essay. And if you've never read CS Lewis, as the abolition of man is very short. I, I don't know fifty pages maybe is worth reading. I remember reading it in a hotel room and shouting, this is amazing. So loudly, I felt the kicked out the door to find out what I was up to and he Lewis in this. Essay Lewis starts out by saying that they're trying to get rid of values values, which he calls, the Dow after the word for the way like the Dow day Jing is the way you know, he says that they're trying to ban natural law are natural sense of something so that when a human beings looks at a waterfall and says this is all inspiring. That's, that's not an opinion. It is in fact, magnificent. A waterfall is in fact magnificent. So he's he is separating those subjective experiences, which are, in fact, individualistic like you like chocolate ice cream and I like the nila from those things that are actually natural to man, which he calls the Dow, and he says the Dow for, for Lewis was proof that God exists, but he didn't argue from a point of view of God. He argued from observation to win you ban. The Dow for what he called scientific ideas psychological ideas, which he saw coming all. All these years ago, he saw this coming super crowded end up. He said that ends up with man, conquering, nature, ultimately, conquering human nature, and he doesn't say, oh, this is a terrible thing. He just says, this is what's going to happen. And listen to how he described this from CS Lewis, the abolition of man, he said for the power of men to make himself, what he pleases means as we have seen the power of some men to make other men. What they please in all ages. No doubt nurturing instruction having some sense attempted to exercise this power, but the situation to, which we must look forward will be novel in two respects in the first place. The power will be enormously increased hitherto the plans of educationalist have achieved very little of what they attempted. And indeed, when we read them, how Plato would have educated, people, he says, when we may well, thank the beneficient obstinacy of real mother's real, nurses, and above all real children for preserving the human race in such sanity as it. Still possesses. Another words, the authorities like Plato want to educate people into being good, but moms, and dads, and children go their own way. And that's a good thing because he keeps man alive C S Lewis's, but the man moulders of the new age will be armed with the powers of an Omni competent state an irresistible scientific technique. We shall get it last a race of conditioners who really can cut out all the steady in what shape they pleased. And that is what we're looking at. That's why I was recommending the other day, a brave new world. This is why the Catholic church has come out against gender. Switching they, they put out a teaching guidelines that said that Kurt the current theories about gender move away from nature, the things called, I think it's called male and female. He made the male and female, I think says the church says we're moving towards an absolute option for the decision of the feelings of the human subject movable sexual. Identities are often founded on nothing more than a confused concept of freedom in the realm of feeling and wants and the fact that we know this is true. We know the pope is right about this Baidoa work who you may have remembered was a longtime ago as a presidential candidate now is just a former something or other. But he, he issued his plan on LGBT issues. Right, including forcing schools to include male athletes, who identify as transgender girls on female sports teams. And you and I would say, well, that eliminates girls sports men are better at all sports. They are better at every sport, every sport that is played by sport. I mean, something we're points decide the outcome, not something we're judges decided women are better, probably figure skating, but, but men are better at all sports, because they're bigger they're faster. They're more agile all those things. However, that doesn't mean that female sports, for instance, tennis don't have a personality of their own, which is really fascinating. Like women's tennis, not just for the pretty girls. I like it because it's slower and you can pay attention to it more. And there's a lot more strategy. But, but what you are doing is you were abolishing women's sports. If you allow men to declare themselves women and, and play women's sports, all those girls who worked so hard to be a good sport. They are essentially eliminated this, the abolition of man is also an abolition of women. It's an abolition of gays because gays define themselves as people who, like the same sex. But if the same sex doesn't exist, then they, they are no such things as gays when you eliminate man, you eliminate everything except the authority accept the authority to determine what man's should be that is the only thing that's left. That is why the rainbow flag is not about inclusion it is about oppression and has nowhere in no place in a church, which is about freedom gay people. Yes. Of course they belong in church. They should never be expelled. All people should be welcomed. God's stable, no matter what you think what do you think about homosexuality? They should be allowed at God's stable, but the. Rainbow flag. Never. It is a sign of oppression a sign of the abolition of men. Listen, you know, this is the wonderful thing that we now have these comedians who come on and tell us how to live who tell us what instead of making jokes instead of making fun of these things. They, they basically telling us how to live. Here's Trevor Noah reacting to the Catholic teaching gut. Has released a statement condemning transgender people saying that it's unnatural which is disappointing, but it's not surprising. I mean, we all know the church thinks if you're born a girl, your girl forever, and if you're born a boy, they're going to try to you. And let's be clear. Here on this Jemma change is not a trend. All right. It's been around for thousands of years. But if it was why does the church care about it so much? How come the church isn't warning us about other trends, you never hear the pope saying it is against God's will to west supreme? There's only one hype beast and his name is Jesus Christ. Oh, and get this guest give this part of the Vatican's rationale is that transgender people go against its belief that God made men and women to reproduce, which first of all transgender people can reproduce. And Secondly, again, why do you care right here? Don't even let your people reproduce. Right. Nuns onto lots to have sex right, priest. Con get little boys pregnant. Yeah, that's right. To pedophilia jokes. Yeah. Yeah. I've done away with it the first time, of course I was going to go back for more, which is the same thing. The preset about touching little boys. Pedophilia joke. Oh, I would have been fine if they'd been funny, pedophilia jokes, you know. You know, I'm going to get back to this just a second. But first, let's talk about rock auto. You know, you know, why people go to automobile parts stores. They go to automobile parts sources the guy behind the counter the girl behind the counter can say, yes, you do need a new new spark plugs, but the grow doesn't know really any more than you do. So you don't have to go through all those that that experience when you can get your parts on your computer instead of going to storm pain more for them to get the parts on a computer. You have computers with access to rock auto dot com at home and in your pocket. Rock auto dot com as a family business serving auto parts customers online for twenty years coulda.

Right. Klavan in there. How did you hear about us box? So they know we sent you and I know what you're thinking. Thinking, sure I know what a control module is a how do you spell Cleveland there? No es easing Cleveland. It's K. L. A V. A N. I just make it look easy. You know, Bill Maher who I, I always say, I disagree with most of what more things, but I really respect him because he does have free speech on his show. He invites people only disagrees with he doesn't demonize people and he almost gets it. I want to play cut eight this is not that cut its cut eight from Bill Maher talking about basically political correctness and woke oppression. I certainly caucus with the Democrats, and as long as Trump is president, I am down the line democrat, but you're going after them, but I was is go after them, 'cause they need going after they. Need some tough love? And I'm not going to stop. But yes, there stuff is raggedy, too. They have some things they have to answer for, and they're they don't help themselves a lot. And I think a lot of this far left political correctness is a cancer on progressivism. I think when you when you talk to, to Trump supporters they're not blind to his myriad flaws. But one thing they always say is he's not politically correct. I don't think you can underestimate overestimate how much people have been choking on political correctness and hate it. There were two studies about this recently was in the New York Times front page story few months ago. It was also in the Atlantic about a year ago. The vast majority of liberals in this country hate it. They think political correctness has gone way too far no-one likes to be living on eggshells mortars under. He's obviously absolutely right about that. But what he doesn't understand, is that progressivism and political correctness cannot exist without one another. You don't hear conservatives being politically, correct. You don't hear us talking about what you can't say. And what you can't do. And you said this ten years ago and therefore you should lose your job. We don't do it or when we do, do it, we're imitating the left, which we shouldn't do. But, but we doesn't understand is, it's all one thing when you abolish man, you don't abolish man. You'll polish everything, but his one instinct, one instinct, his instinct to oppress, that's all that's left, when he get rid of natural law when he got rid of the Dow, when he get rid of humankind, you know, backstage live tickets. We're going to have backstage live, if you've ever thought to yourself, wow. I could be breathing that awful cigar smoke. I could see Cleveland drinking heavily and, you know, until finally, he's not making any sense whatsoever. You know if you ever wanted to be there, you can be there. Backstage live tickets will be on sale tomorrow, June eighteenth to the twentieth for subscribers only will be live at the terraced theater in Long Beach, California on August twenty first get your tickets on tomorrow.

All right. We have Michael Knowles who? Oh, yeah. I remember Michael knows the future. Former press secretary, Michael Knowles will be us just a sec, but I, I gotta say goodbye to Facebook and YouTube, come on over the daily wire dot com and subscribe, then you can get tickets to backstage live, also being the mailbag also listened to all the shows right there. It's only ten bucks a month, a hundred bucks for the year and four hundred bucks you get this, the leftist tears thunder. I know you know, you want it, you know, you want the leftist tumbler come over and subscribe. So there is the show on Netflix. I talked about this a little bit before. But it really is worth going back to because it's pure leftist propaganda, and it's so bad. I made Knowles watching this called. When they see us is this, the right title when they see us. Here's, here's a brief clip from the Netflix show. This is about an incident that happened when I lived in New York, the first time girl, attacked raped beaten with an introvert life, as a mob, moved through central park in Manhattan. Beating up people in attacking them. His mom won't. It's you and us. We win the with. Meetings. Loss. Where did you see the lady one, one lady female charter was severely beaten, and raped? Every blackmail who's in the park last night is a suspect, I need all of them. What's going on with my son, you son involve rate in central park? They saw you rape. The lady, and seal eighty or in any any lady govern. See, I wanna see my son white now right map. He said. The. So. Nothing. These boys state matches the central facts of the crime, we need this from one to tie this whole thing. Together, these tastes are not as clean as the state would have you believe? Various injustice happening here. There is not one shred of evidence the frenzy, these teenage slipping off her wings, innocent of these guilty. Like this. What other way they ever do us? That, that's utter garbage speaking of order gory. Get treated like. Now you're the future. Former I know second third star being nice to me. I mean, I'm the you actually you said, a very nice thing, Twitter is actually true making jokes. I think it was Ben. Shapiro was making jokes about you replacing Sarah Sanders. Would you be great? So you're fearless. You're great under pressure. And you don't take crap from the and I actually think, you know, I mean you've gone on these college speaking. Yes, I've, I've been around these hordes of shrieking children, children, which will completely prepare for Jim Acosta. The first one. Actually shears. I mean, they I think they're going to use Milanez press secretary at some of the that's what the room. But you would bring a needed added. Joseph Kaffee, if I were called on to serve my country, certainly I would accept the call. I would I would love to do think actually at this. I mean, whether it's me or somebody else, I do think there is some advantage to having a conservative speaker conservative voice in the culture to deal with these people. I mean it's happened before they've used Fox News hosts this press secretary's, I think it's a very Trumpy idea. I think if it's not me, maybe it'll be Sean Hannity. It would be better than having the style to do it anyway. In case you're listening. This is this is where he comes for his policy. Did you watch this? Did I did watch it because you made me why I watch it. So New York in the seventies was basically the south in the twenties. Everything about this is so dishonest. And from the very beginning. So just the very beginning of it for those who don't know the central park, five has become this by word injustice, and oppression and racism, what happened in the central park five on the night of April nineteenth nineteen Eighty-nine a twenty eight year old white investment banker woman Tricia maley went jogging in on the north side of central park by one hundred ten th three years. This is one thousand nine hundred nine eighty nine. So this is almost as bad as again. I mean, the peak of, of crime was the early nine by this is the second time. I went back. Yeah, that's right. And, and so if first of all the question is, what on earth is a twenty eight year old white woman who works on Wall Street. Yeah. Doing jogging. I mean, if you so much as step foot in central Park Day after dark, it was very dangerous. So she's jogging there. And guess what happened? There was a group of about thirty young kids from the neighborhood who went out and. Were terrorizing people this was somewhere between organized crime and a riot. But kids, went in there with lead pipes beating people unconscious knocking people off their bikes robbing people. I mean, this was widespread crime going on in the midst of this, this woman is salted beaten and raped almost killed almost kill. She was in a coma for twelve days when they found this woman she was nearly dead. And so you had you had these groups of teens hurling rocks at people they left one pedestrian unconscious. There was one teacher. John Laughlin forty year old schoolteacher. He was severely beaten kicked hitting the back of the head and not unconscious with a pipe by some of these kids. And so they're trying to figure out what happens and they arrest some of these kids who were at the at this riot. Now they charge five of them with acting in concert for rape, not for the act itself, not for the act of rape itself, but acting in concert and the kids had confessed to it. Admitted that they did it. They talked about how they groped the woman's body, and they talked to fringe about it two they talked to for. So it wasn't just to the con-. Yeah. There was actually there's one woman who testified at the trial. She testified in two thousand and two in this case was reopened. And she testified that Corey wise, one of the kids who's the oldest game sixteen cold her brother and told her that he held the jogger down and felt her breasts while the others attacked her. There were blood stains and dirt on the clothing of the five. There, there were semen stains on the clothing because some of those are the simulated sex with this woman who had been raped. Right. So in the midst of all of this, they are charged. They're convicted they go to jail, some of them, four of the kids, only served six six to seven years. One of them the older, one career wise got thirteen years, and the, the other kids were in juvie, the older, one got thirteen years in adult prison, then in two thousand and to some guy comes forward, Matisse raise. He's convicted murderer serial rapist. He said, he's the one who raped the woman. Okay. And they and they confirmed that with the and they confirmed that with DNA. So all of the kids are exonerated, right. Why they never. They were not connected. Not. That's right. Convicted of the act of rape itself, they were convicted in the rate, right? And in the assault. Yeah, the kids were viciously beating people knocking people, unconscious and admitting to groping this woman who was knocked unconscious and ebsco, fractured. This is the great exoneration. And why is this being brought up now? Well, that's, that's a great word. But just at they wouldn't a multi million oh, ten million dollars settlement. Yeah. More than that. So in two thousand and two they find out this guy committed the rape. So the, the kids charges the kids now they're adults charges are vacated, which is absurd. We know that they committed the other the other crime, right? They sued the city for malicious prosecution. No evidence of malicious prosecution, Mike bloomber, who is a democrat. He's a left-winger Bloomberg refuses to settle because he knows the city is going to win in court by then. Bolshevik may build a Blasios comes in after blue brats, what is settle not ten million. Yeah. Forty one million dollars. And then the kids, sue, again they should've state for over fifty million dollars, they don't get that. They settle for much lower, but forty one million bucks, because when they were teenagers, they went out and started beating pedestrians unconscious, and but roping a raped assaulted woman forty million. So now we see this thing in Linda fairstein, who the DA is made into the villain, which obviously, was not. I mean, it's not she was a very fair to yet. She was a tough day, but she was fair, the why, why make this from the very first moments there are these kids. They're just in the pizza pizza parlor with their girlfriend just having a nice time, and then some kids from the street and say, hey, we're all going to go to the park kids, you're not come onto the park, we're going to go to the park, and they're all playing around in the park, you know, they're kind of hassle and some by bicyclists, but it's all innocent kids stuff. And then they just happened to see another group of people attacking the woman who'd been raped, and it gets so scared and they run away and they go in. And Linda Linda, the prosecutor is she's a bigot out for blood, and she Nores all the evidence if big it out for become the DA in New York, it's absurd. And so I mean very little is honest, and the very little is factual in the trail of this, but why is it coming up? It's because during this whole case, President Trump as he has want to do takes out a full page ad in the new York Daily News and it says bring back the death penalty bring back our police. He says we gotta get tough on crime. We can't have people being nearly murdered for going on a jog in central park completely right? By the way, he's going to score. Oh, it was, it was terrifying playtime, but because of this, this is why they're making the show. So in the show you here. This poor mother saying the devil's trying to kill my kid the devil that who's the devil, devil's Donald Trump. My perfectly innocent. Kid. He didn't do anything wrong, how to know we was walking into the park with a lead pipe, they this is all about going and getting Trump, and as always with the left, if you just knew the narrative, if you just knew the miniseries. Yeah. Not only this all anybody will ever see anybody because who didn't somebody right about this city journal. Yes, there was this piece at city journal that came out who wrote it. It was a I have it pulled up right here Seth Seth baron. Seth baron. That's right. That's about how so the title of the piece is Trump, the real target of a Netflix series, and I actually didn't when I saw the piece, I said, of course, I mean when I had occurred to me that people wouldn't know that when I saw this in my Netflix queue. Oh, they only made this because Donald Trump is president. But how many first of all, I'm a New Yorker how many people remember what the central park five was? Yeah. How many people especially millennials remember that? How many people know of President Trump's involvement? How many people are going to put those two and two together? That there was a Hollywood development meeting, where people sat around a table and Trump was elected I guess we got some black clan. Spike Lee movie. It's all about Donald Trump. Donald Trump is the clan, you know, it's insane. It's amazing it and so the show good at this. And we are so bad. And what's so awful about it? I mean, of course, this happens all the time this happens the Oliver Stone movie JFK, it happens with the new movie about Dick Cheney it's happened here is. It's not just that they're smearing politicians is not just that they're smearing our guys. It's that people will draw exactly the wrong conclusions from this New York in the late eighties was hell on earth. You remember you were there, I was there. I was glint and my father at the time I used to run. I had a job where I had to get to work at three in the morning, I was radio news writer. I used to come out of my apartment and take off. No, no kidding. Take off and run until I got to where that prostitutes stood outside the Korean grocery, and then I've had a cab and the girls would say so on have a great day, Honey. You know. The series because I thought nobody's been among me on standing in a crowd in front of this open store. I was the only person the only person that newsroom who didn't get month. Wow. Yeah. Only person. The only person. So if Trump is an example of this thing we need to get tough on crime. Takes on an added new York Daily News. Yeah. He's right. And then, guess what happened in the nineteen nineties, you had Rudy Giuliani? Come in New York did get tough on crime. And now it's Disneyland and they called him. They call them a racist every single bit. That's what are you talking about an show? We're talking about the injustice at Harvard recinding the admittance of is. It's just part, I was almost going to mention it to this part of the woke oppression. It's, it's really awful. And so I, I sure hope the dean of undergraduate admissions there has never said anything wrong in his past. You're talking about that. Also, the I want to talk about on the show, one, I want to talk about the flag burning. Yes. I think a lot of conservatives are getting a wrong. Maybe you and I disagree a little probably. And then judge being playing the gay cord absolutely perfectly just brilliant. We'll get to all of it. All right. Good enough for an will reflect and I just want to talk about the show that has come on called euphoria, which stars and Diana's about sex and drugs among teenagers, and I've watched the first episode, and I'm not gonna comment on the quality of the show yet. I wanna see where it goes and what is up to. It's obviously highly highly sexualize, you know, on this, the site that I love the newsbusters site, which I think is a great great site in this run by Brent Basell, and Tim Graham over there, and they are great. And they wrote a column in the headline of the column, a lot of stuff in the call him that I agreed with, but the headline of the column is HBO drags. Disney star zendaya into the gutter and I just wanna point out that's I, I noticed her. I mentioned her on. The show when I saw the greatest showman. She is an enormously beautiful incredibly talented young woman, and that and that movie scored that the critics hated was a huge hit after that movies in Diac lived on anything. She wanted is not HBO the dragged her into the gutter this is something that she chose to do. And they say in the column that she was desperately seeking to keep her career live in the eyes of Hollywood casting Asians. Well, I you know, I just don't think that, that the reason picking on this, obviously speaking about Zelen Graham with great respect. I love their site and I love their work, but reason I disagree with this. And the reason I feel like conservatives don't understand Hollywood. Is that this is her decision that she and her handlers are agents and representatives made, and they made it because she wants to do something deeper and richer, and more serious the question is why for an actress to do something more serious, does she have to do material like this? And the reason is, is because we are not doing serious material, because she doesn't want to be in the kind. Shows that Christians make. Now, I've, I've kind of backed off a little bit on attacking Christian movies. I understand. And I've always said this. I understand that they're good family, fair. And they're fun for Christians to watch and they confirm their point of view, but they're not deepen. They're not rich, y it's not because they don't deal with people doing sinful things is that they don't deal with the joy of sent. They don't deal with how much fun it is. And how lively and how vital it is to do these things, and how teenagers has they do in this show, you for you at how they think it's somehow justifies them and vindicates their point of view and is the thing that's going on. Why is that true? How do we deal with that world from a moral point of view? I'm not saying you for it doesn't do that. Like I said, I haven't seen enough of it to know some shows that are highly sexualize, also highly moral. So I'm not going to comment on that yet. But the only point I wanna make his India chose to do this HBO didn't drag her into this, and she chose to do it, because she thought this was where the depth was this was her chance to move from being a child, personal only appeals to the G rated audience, too. So. Someone who is respected can win an Oscar can win an EMMY why is that system in place? Those are the questions that conservatives should be asking, not blaming her. And certainly, I don't even think they should be blaming HBO. They should be saying, how do we support artists will create art that will make zendaya say now as a wholesome person is a good person, I can expand as an actress, and really explore the human condition and not sit around doing shows that just have that banal optimism. That's how Schopenhauer described Christianity has been all optimism. That's not the human condition. That's not art. It's not what actresses and actors and writers want to do. And I think that, that's the things that we should be instead of condemning an attacking people who do stuff we should be doing that stuff and making sure that stuff gets done. I gotta stop there because you want the null show to come on here what he's going to talk about. I'm Andrew klavan. This is the Andrew klavan show. The Andrew klavan show is produced by Robert Stirling executive producer Jeremy boring, senior producer Jonathan. Hey, our supervising producer is Mathis Glover. And our technical producer is Austin, Stevens, edited by Adam sigh of its audio is mixed by Mike, Corinna hair and makeup is by Jessica Alba, and our animations are by Cynthia, and Google production assistant, Nik Sheehan. The Andrew klavan show is daily wire production copyright daily wire twenty nineteen. The biggest of the Harvard admissions committee already under fire for race discrimination have rescinded the acceptance of well-known conservative activists, Kyle cache of for totally bogus attacks. We will examine how conservatives can fight back then President Trump endorses a constitutional amendment to stop flag burning will explain the case for that. And finally mayor, Pete Buddha. Judge plays the gay card perfectly check it out at the Michael Knowles show.
6-15-21 The Mike Gallagher Show Hour 2
"This is your source for breaking news and what to make of it. All this. he's the mike gallagher. Show if you get a vaccine you don't have to worry about unvaccinated people. You don't pose a risk to me because i am vaccinated. The american middle class is subsidizing. The rest of the world who are taking advantage of america. And that's why the other world leaders will love joe biden because they realize that the trough is open again now from the relief factor dot com studio. Here's mike gallagher. I'm getting on a plane later today. I wonder if they're gonna make me wear a mask now that the number two person in charge has formally announced if you're vaccinated. You don't need to wear a mask. Would kaba harris said yesterday right. You heard the clip. Have you heard what she said. She's of course cackling like she does but she made it very clear cut number ten. Here's the vice president of the united states confirming what we had sort of suspected fully vaccinated. No mask for you and for those of us who got vaccine we know. Now i can stand here with my mask off and had this conversation with you and most of you can do the same with me. And so that's the trade off. That's the trade off feeling a few hours of feeling a little under the weather versus risking your life. The life of your loved ones. And i'd say given that balance is a one hundred percent worth it well. I don't want to risk my life for the original life of my loved ones or risk anybody's life show. It's worth it. Get the vaccination take off the mask. So why do. I have to wear masks today when i get on an airplane. Why do i have to wear masks today. If i get on a bus why do. I have to wear a mask to do anything since i'm fully vaccinated. Now i can't prove fully vaccinated. Because somehow i've managed to lose by vaccination card the card that was like the willy wonka golden ticket. That i was treasuring. I i was show excited about the card. I had it laminated at a staples which was a disaster because the lavender it makes the letters darkened out. You can't see the numbers so thank goodness. I took a picture. I don't know if this is going to be like. I can only imagine how long i'm going to be on. Hold with some bureaucrat. On the phone to get a new vaccination card that only take about twelve hours. It'll be a little bit like calling the airline. That's three and a half hours. I had to call delta the other day three and a half hour wait. I'm a big shot. Platinum elite gold. Silver whenever i am three and a hour wait And you know why. Because they can't they don't have enough people working. You know whether or not enough people working. And i'm just getting this right from the horse's mouth this is an executive a delta. They can't hire people because people are saying. I'm making more money getting my pandemic money staying at home than i am going into an office or answering the phone from my home. A lot of these customer service centers people working from home now. This'll be fun transition. Now that the workplaces are starting to open up again companies. I think are going to expect people to go back into the office and a lot of people are going to say. Why don't have to go back in the office. I'm doing just fine working from home. I'm not gonna mention any names pavlina but there are people that are very happy working at home and i don't know what i don't know what we're gonna do because the company is saying well. Here's our new policy. The company has a right to expect you to be in the office. I get it on. The other. End of people are productive home. I get that too so it'll be a mesh. Here's some optimistic news. This is kind of cool. And i hope there's not a lotta cynicism that is associated with the big ticker tape parade.

Everybody cooped up people terrified. New yorkers were really devastated by covert in. The beginning was an awful awful environment. They were digging graves in the potter's fields and bodies were stacking up in refrigerated trucks. It was bad and every night. I think it was at like five o'clock six o'clock whatever. It was dusk as the doctors and nurses would file in or out of the hospital at the end of the day. The shift new yorkers would lean out of their windows in their tiny apartments and clap and cheer and praise those hometown.

Well don't want to get shot when they're out jogging. Something similar happen to woman. Called valerie casper on a trail brookhaven right near buckhead. She was stabbed four times in the back by a total stranger. In broad daylight issues. Walking on a trail casper was pregnant with her second child at the time. She was forced to deliver her baby more than three months earlier because she was stabbed by a stranger. Why was she stabbed. Why was shot. These weren't robberies. The only point was physical. Injury was terror was brutality. The victims appeared have been chosen purely for how they look. But don't call these hate crimes. It's not allowed. You can't say that privately though many people in buckhead suspect that's exactly what's going on. They been attacked by reckless politicians for years. Politicians have ginned up hatred of buckhead for political reasons. So why wouldn't others take them seriously. Why wouldn't shootings and stabbings be the end result of that. Some people in buckhead have had enough of this. They don't think it's going to get better to bills curling. The georgia state legislature would allow bucket to leave the city of atlanta then run its own competent police department and resume being a safe nice place. Cnn for one hates this idea.

Call eight hundred five ten micrograms a fellowship home loans dot com slash mike g welcome home fellowship home loans. I dread amass conversation. But the reason i feel like you got to have the conversation is because it's part of the the return to normalcy. In america this is part of returning to normal for the world. The world has been wearing masks. It's not just us and there. There is now this transition to a mask list society and the transition Is a bumpy one in some cases. Fatal apparently this week there was a dekalb county grocery store that was the scene of a fatal shooting. A cashier allegedly demanded that a patron at the grocery store. Put his mask on an argument ensued. She wound up shot debt. This is an awful story and it is kind of a bitter reminder about the confrontations that are happening over the mask issues still to this day even though we have the vice president of the united states record shane. if you're vaccinated you don't have to wear a mask you take your mask off you're completely vaccinated and that leads to a whole nother set of questions but first let me take you to. Dekalb county georgia. This is a report from wsb tv over. How things can turn deadly over debates and confrontations and conflicts overmatched breaking news. A woman is dead and a deputy man are injured after a triple shooting. Dekalb county investigators say this started over a fight over a mask channel. Tuesday she fernandez was the first reporter at the scene on candler road right near south. Dekalb mall tie back with us. Live taking us through more of what happened just in customers. Keep pulling up to the store expecting to go inside and shop and this is what they're seeing a very active crime scenes crime scene still hours after the shooting happened. Now we had a chance to talk to more witnesses that you have not heard from. And they describe to us what they heard and saw versa down. George thought was shopping inside. This big bear grocery store on candler road monday afternoon. It's right across from south to cap mall. Hazard heard several shots. After that it was a triple shooting that started when a man walked in here and refuse to put on a mask. Witnesses say a female cashier told him to put one on well. Cash out and have seen walking gun. He sat tomato said he got to the store. Security guard is an off-duty. dekalb county deputy. He stepped in off the welfare new. They start trying to find. I just talked with the mayor who was waiting on me. A guy grays it has seen. I've got grazed. Would it probably would hit me directly so get out of there. I don't know what the world is coming to know. It is it really is my friend. Okay and she's not sure if her friend was the one who was shot here. We know that woman has died and Investigators also told us that the deputy was shot twice. We're still working to find out what condition the shooter is in for live in. Dekalb county tisha fernandez channel two action news. No it's such a terrible story because that woman's family has to lay this woman to rest and that is not how she should have died. She should die a ninety nine year. Old woman in bed asleep with her grandkids around. There's no reason that that should have had that. Outcome should have occurred. And i i'm i'm not blaming her but i will also point out. It is not worth it to confront anybody over a match especially now when we have the vice president of the united states confirming if you're vaccinated you don't have to wear a mask and there's no. There is no upside to a cashier confronting somebody this has been going on for months in florida. I've noticed people even when we were in the thick of the pandemic and the mask ban dates were in place in places all throughout the tampa bay area. I would see people walking through the grocery store the public's without a mask on nobody confronted them and the reason is nobody wants to confront them because they probably want a confrontation and why give it to them. Why have something. That's going to lead to a conflict that might result in the death of somebody making six dollars an hour at checkout line at a big bear grocery store in. Dekalb county i. I mean i'm listen. I'm not demeaning hard work that woman didn't make enough to be a mask police officer just terrible and a hope. The perpetrator the justice that he deserves for taking that woman's life. Meanwhile i mean here was comma harris whatever you think of her. She has the vice president of the united states. She says there's a tradeoff play here and for those of us who who got the vaccine we know you know. Look here with my mask off and had this conversation with you and most of you can do the same with me. And so that's the trade off. That's the trade off. Feeling a few hours of of of feeling a little under the weather versus risking your life risking the life of your loved ones and i'd say given that balance is one hundred percent worth it. Okay so the vice president says the trade off is get vaccinated. Take your mask off. Hey airline industry wide making people fly with the mask on pay health care centers. Why are you making people walk in with that with the mask on schools. Why are you making kids. Wear masks the vice president. She's a heartbeat away from the presidency number. Two leader in america says the trade off is get lose the mask. I'm fly later today. I'm gonna hop on a plane for delta. hey delta. Why are you making me. Wear a mask oh well we're following the guidelines of the the fcc and the rob rob the cdc cdc. Why are you making people wear a mask. The vice president just said if you're vaccinated take your mask off which is of course. Maybe what the guy at the the the the moron criminal who shot dead a woman might have been thinking why somebody telling me. Why is somebody in my grill about wearing a mask. When i've been vaccinated and the vice-president saint louis the mask if you've been vaccinated. I don't know what had happened. Maybe that guy wasn't vaccinated. Who knows the guy is allegedly killer that needs to be brought to justice and i hope he will be but these are the questions we ought to be asking each other. These are the things we ought to be talking about and we are. Let's just use a little bit of common sense because when it comes to masks in america a little bit of common sense is going to go. A long way makes no sense whatsoever to confront strangers over whether they are or not wearing masks. Mind your business. Mind your best. It's more coming up on tuesday episode. The mike gallagher.

Gee i don't think it's a stretch to say the democrats are trying to destroy the country city-by-city all the major blue cities new york los angeles chicago. Atlanta are being devastated by violent crime by criminals running amok these are like scenes. Right out of mad max or escape from new york. Or whatever movie whatever apocalyptic kind of the movie analogy you want to use. Is that bad. You know the atlanta area. The area called buckhead. Buckhead is a beautiful community in the atlanta area as tucker carlson pointed out last night on fox news bucket has sort of turned into the wild wild west. Here's a chunk of tucker carlson's monologue. Which is a perfect example. A lesson in completely failed democrat leadership in america in buckhead murders year to date or up almost fifty percent. That's a lot of new dead people robberies and aggravated assaults up by nearly forty percent car. Thefts sixty five percent rise. Lenox square mall in buckhead was one of the first indoor shopping malls in the united states. It was great and famous place. Now it's too dangerous to visit beginning last year. Someone was getting shot at them all virtually every month in december two thousand nineteen. A macy's employee was shot. During a robbery. In january man. Trying to defend himself on robbery was inadvertently shot by a cop in february of last year. A drug deal led to a gun battle. Outside of bloomingdale's in march dispute over a parking space outside the cheesecake factory lead to more gun fire which killed someone and so on so people in buckhead to stopped going to that mall ultimately authorities decide they need security and metal detectors. Police dogs throughout the buildings. They set up a network of security cameras with software to detect firearms. It seemed like we work but it didn't. It was just too much violence. This past april gunmen beat a sixty year old woman next to her car in the parking lot and then stole her purse linen. Police later said that somehow none of their cameras had caught the crime. A witness called james glasses. He never saw any police officers or security during the assault even though the attacker took his time beating the woman because he was enjoying it so much according to glass quote it seemed like he was celebrating what he had done he started to rejoice and started shouting just like he was happy for what had done to this lady. It's disgusting and it's still going on on monday to fifteen year old shot and nearly killed a security guard. The apple store at lenox square mall. So of criminals can terrorize the mall in buckhead. Now one of the most surveilled places in the entire city. What can they do when neighborhood or they can terrorize it and they are. They're attacking people unrest in bucket. What's this report from fox. Five in atlanta neighbors say they're shocked after two crimes hit their buckhead neighborhood. Atlanta police say on saturday. They found a man with a gunshot wound of west wesley road. Investigators say the man in two others were shot at while jogging hours later on saturday. Atlanta police responded to the collier ridge apartment complex. Say they found a man who was severely injured on scene strike pain individual without taking out the trash atlanta. Police say they arrested the suspect shortly after that crime. Now investigators are working to figure out a possible motive. The man who was shot jogging on saturday is called andrew world. You should know. There's no back story here. He didn't know the guy who shot him. He wasn't doing anything he was just jogging on the weekend. Like a good citizen and a guy pulled up and opened fire. Why he was not an one call is difficult to listen to. But you should listen to it too so you can understand precisely what key chaban abs has done to bucket. Here's the call. Hello paula levin was was like. Is this a house. Apartment are places. I'm going to st twelve eleven. Got shocked as the salem still there by either way. Okay and insperity syria forty years. Don't believe i've been shot. And he was shot twice. Unbelievable this is again. I'm a product of the mayor of atlanta with bond reform and bail reform springing criminals because lunatic activists radicals think. Somehow it's racist to incarcerate bad guys. The argument i guess is that a disproportionate amount of criminals are minority and therefore the way we write the system fix it is to spring. Don't don't don't hold or incarcerate. The bad guys know bond nobel. Get out and this lansky. Shell lance bottoms. Whatever name is the. she's doing to atlanta. What lori lightfoot is doing to chicago. Bill de blasio is doing to to new york. What the mayor of san francisco is to san francisco and on and on and on and on it's it's reprehensible and all my prayer. My daily wish is that this time as we get closer to the mid terms americans are paying attention. I have a theory that not enough. Americans were paying attention in two thousand twenty and we were distracted. There's a little thing called corona virus going on so maybe you weren't paying attention to the lies that the media was feeding you as we go through the list of all the ways. Trump has been exonerated over and over and over again. Maybe this time we'll pay attention and we will reject even in the big cities. The failed corrupt decrepit disgraceful leadership of people like the mayor of atlanta that leads to their own cities looking like a war zone. It's disgraceful it's despicable and it is absolutely fundamentally wrong and this time as voters as citizens we better do something about one coming up a couple of smart men to join us on the mike gallagher. Show lee habib. Who's the producer of a great new movie at salem. Now dot com. Dr marty mccarey from johns hopkins. All of that coming up.
Ep. 687 - Is Rising White Supremacism Even a Thing?
"A shocking new poll from the Hollywood reporter shows that fifty seven percent of Americans are concerned that what they hear on network. News is not accurate, according to health officials. This means the other forty three percent of Americans. No longer have the rudimentary intelligence required to perform such tasks as peeling an arch asking a policeman to take them home or driving a muscle car into a flaming pile of garbage at one hundred seventy miles an hour because their best friend told them it would be cool in other worrisome. Data the poll revealed that nearly fifty three percent of Americans. Find C N N A credible. News source, which means over half of Americans are now suffering from a strange mental illness, which causes them to hear voices in their heads, delivering credible news, while they're listening to the people line on CNN several afflicted people were concerned that the voices in their heads were telling them to do terrible things like say, you love Satan or vote democrat. But fortunately, those voices were in fact coming from CNN and the hallucinated voices were. Far more benign the poll further found that more than twenty percent of Americans. Find the news networks are not credible new sources causing health officials to become concerned that nearly eighty percent of Americans are gormless idiots in a follow up interview with an American who found the networks credible. Thirty year old Brooklyn Wimpy artisanal told pollsters, quote, I know when I'm watching ABC, I am getting the whole truth. And that Dr Meredith grey really is concerned about Andrew being alone in the operating room with Richard after Richard walked in on Andrew and Meredith making out unquote when told that that was the plot of Grey's anatomy. Mr. artisanal said, quote, I believe every word of it. And the news is well on quote in the wake of the poll findings doctors at the CDC are working overtime to develop a cure for gullibility, which could if affective eradicate network news completely trigger warning. I'm Andrew klavan. And this is the Andrew klavan show. So remain. Also sustain. Thompson. Zippy's so wonderful. All right. This is my last day here at hillsdale as the distinguished fellow journalism. I've become more and more distinguished as the week has gone on until I'm just so distinguished. I can't even distinguish distinguished. I am last night. I delivered my public address at a tremendously pleasant dinner in event. The whole whole thing has been really just a wonderful experience going to have to think about it. Because it's such a nice place to be that. I am. I am a little bit torn about coming back to Los Angeles. A why anyone would be torn about calming loss? Anyway, I think the speech will be available online somewhere. I we'll figure it out. And we'll put it out there for you, one of the things I was talking about is I've talking about the fact that human beings have an inborn moral sense, and that you can tell when they're inventing an ideology, which is meant to circumvent that moral sense when they're making excuses for stealing your money or seizing power killing people, and I listened some symptoms of a guilty conscience that plagues wrongdoers one symptom was silencing dissent. Because if you're lying about something the. Truth can be very powerful. So you've got to shut it down. And another symptom twisted ideology is disaster-mongering which by which I mean, seeing disasters everywhere around every corner because in state of emergency moral laws can sometimes be reasonably suspended, which is supposed to justify your stupid immoral lies that you're telling about the things that you're doing now just like hypochondriacs can get sick catastrophes do happen, even on chicken Littles watch. So let's take a look at white nationalism. That Democrats say it's on the rise and the internet is to blame. And also, of course, that evil. Donald Trump hate crimes are getting worse. They say, here's what I say, the overblown hysteria about white nationalism is disaster-mongering meant to disguise a move towards censorship of mainstream conservative speech. The left can hold up pictures of Nazis and bigots and killers. But they're real targets are the ideas expressed by people like you and me, and I'll show you what I mean. But first we have to talk about ring ring. Ring of security, which is what you want around your home. I told you the story about J Jonathan, hey who has some job. Nobody really knows what he does. But he walks around with an Arab authority. So we all respect him because who knows maybe he can fire us. But I told you about how somebody came to his house to thirty in the morning. Luckily, he had a ring doorbell, which let them talk to the guy and see the guy and the girl who was out there as they tried to talk their way into his house. He left the next day. He spent some money, and he just surrounded his house with ring devices because ring is dedicated to making neighborhoods safer safer. You know about their smart video doorbells. They also have the floodlight Cam which will set off automatic flight floodlights when anybody walks onto your property ring helps you stay connected to your home anywhere in the world. You can talk to anybody who comes to the door right there on your phone. And as a listener, you have a special offer on a ring starter kit available right now with a video doorbell in motion activated floodlight Cam the starter kit as everything you need to start building. A ring of. Security around your home. Just go to ring dot com slash cliven. That's ring dot com slash Clayton. Anyone comes to your home? Just press the talk button and say, how do you spell cliven? They don't know not let them in. That's that's probably all right. But if do know, it's K L A V A N as mailbag day. All right. You know, I'm going to start doing I'm going to just scream, and then you're going to have to play its mailbag that is Mel they will answer all your questions. Stop stop standard anymore. Answers guaranteed. Andrea percent, correct. Will change your life. Some of you for the better the rest of you are doomed and tomorrow. I'm awesome flying home. And so the next show will be on Friday. And then the Cleveland this weekend. We'll come back and those of you who survived being doomed simple mail bag will. In fact, be do. So white nationalism is bad. Okay. The left, and I agreed. We agree that white nationalism is bad. We have different reasons they think it's bad because they want to take the injustice, they feel has been done against people of color and turn it around on white people. They feel that they're always doing the same thing. They're always saying, oh, there's an injustice we have to end the injustice, but what they're really trying to do is seize the power to commit injustice as some kind of corrective for the injustice of the past. I think white nationalism is bad because it's stupid and wrong to make moral judgments about people according to their race rather than their actions. Okay. Stupid to make. Moral judgements about people according to their race instead of their actions. Let's call that rule. One do not make moral judgments about people according to their race instead of their actions rule one you do not violate rule one because you don't want it done to you. Right. The golden rule. Everybody knows he's an individual responsible for himself. He's not responsible to everybody was the same colori is whether it comes from the same country is, you know, you can't say a white people held slaves, and therefore you're responsible because you have the same color as those white people, and it wasn't white people holding slaves. It was some white people all these slave while other white people, of course, were fighting to free them. You can't say black people commit crimes black people or muggers because it some black people. It's not the guy you're talking to at that moment. He feels himself as an individual you want to feel yourself as an individual doing to others as you would have them do unto you it geic breaking rule one is wrong. The only time race actually matters is when looking at somebody according to race expose. Is someone violating rule one? Okay. So if a Jews aren't getting any job at a certain jobs at a certain Bank because they're not hiring Jews that they are violating rule one. And that's a clue that the fact that they're not hiring Jews. You can see that that's going on. But other than that. You're just adopting you or violating rule one. If you if you start to disrespect people according to their race because they're black but ever else it is. That's why I'm against affirmative action. Right. I don't think is right to penalize Asian people or white people according to their race by giving credits to other people because of their race. I just think that's violating rule one against reparations because the person's paying the reparations didn't do anything and the person who's getting the reparations didn't suffer anything I'm against Indian reservations, how about that one. I think they should be phased out. Why should why should they not just be full Americans at this point is absolutely? It's just miserable on those reservations, it's bad for them. Why should they be? Why should we try to get rid of the sins of the past? And they're worsens of the past, but you cannot fix the passage just can't be done and I'm against white nationalism. For the same reason. My philosophy has benefit over the left's philosophy in that. It makes sense. I'm against anything that violates rule one. But in their attempt to win power over the economy and speech Democrats need disasters. That's what I was talking about before if they can tell you that a disastrous coming maybe you'll suspend the moral rules may be will suspend rule one. You don't know. So they've got Russian collusion and evil Trump. And now, it's white nationalism House Democrats sponsoring this completely ridiculous nonbinding resolution condemning white supremacy supremacist rhetoric and violence that specifically targets immigrants. So this is a hit at your old pal. The president of the United States because he's trying to secure the border. So that must make him a big, you know, it's it's complete nonsense. But this is what they're doing. So they came out, and they give a press conference, and they're talking about they don't mess. Mention Trump by name, but they sort of referred to his characterization of the border situation, though, it's an invasion, and he used the word animals to describe those nice fellows who belong to MS MS thirteen. I miss at MSNBC for the slip, but his MS thirteen even people at MSNBC or not animals like the people that MS thirteen. So I think we can let them off the hook for that. Here is a clip just to give the whole game away from Brooke Baldwin it CNN interviewing Jonathan green Blat of the left wing Anti-Defamation League, which used to be a respectable organization fighting against anti semitism in now is just another one of these organizations that's been taken over by the left law enforcement policymakers and even some politicians haven't taken the threat of white nationalism sufficiently serious. So when the president says no now, it's just a number of people. Well, he's wrong on the facts. Why is this happening? Why is it on the rise? And what are people doing about it? I think there are multiple reasons why it's on the rise. Look, it's always been there. But first and foremost in our charge political environment. It's exacerbated it's all exacerbated divisions. The tensions the anxiety. That's all there. Secondly, social media has created a sort of a connective tissue to spread the previously didn't happen. But one of the reasons why we had European white supremacist in Charlottesville, and then foreign white supremacists. Who lauded what happened in Pittsburgh is because through not just Facebook and Twitter, but gab and discord in fortune, all these other platforms. They're all literally exalting the third reason they're doing so is because they find their language in their means literally on the tip of the tongue of our president. Yes. Okay. So there it is the whole the whole plot lie laid out right there. Right. The problem is the evil. White supremacist is on the rise. And was a little if you weren't watching. There's a little chart and back showing spiked seventeen percent or whatever which really refers to hate crimes most of which are against Jews. And then it's social media. That's the problem. Here's the New York Times, a former newspaper ran this piece. I mean, this is you know, it's a talking point when they're spreading it around each each venues picking it up, right? So attacks by white supremacists growing. So are there connections? Right. It's social media just says in a manifesto. This is the lead in a manifesto posted online before his attack. The gunman who killed fifty last month in a rate rampage at two mosques in Christ's church new zeal-, have you noticed that the killing of Muslims is is horrible killing. It's an atrocity, but you've noticed that this has gotten more press in the New York Times than a Muslim killing fifty people would ever get immediately. They'd be making putting out stories about how we have to protect Muslims from the backlash. But a guy who kills Muslims and we hear endlessly about this about his white supremacy. Anyway, he said this killer. This knucklehead who did the killing said he drew inspiration from white experiment. Extremities half white extremists. Terrorism attacks, Norway, the United States, Italy, Sweden and the United Kingdom his references to those attacks placed him in an informal global network of white extremists whose violent attacks or occurring with greater frequency in the west and analysis by the New York Times of recent terrorism attacks found that at least a third of white extremists killers since two thousand eleven were inspired by others who perpetrated similar attacks the connections between the killers span continents and highlight how the internet and social media at the silhouetted the spread of white extremist ideology and violence. Oh, be afraid of social media. Be afraid of the right? It's anybody who's talking on the right? Who's inspiring? These people in the president the who does Twitter more than the president. We just heard from C N N. No, no less a source than CNN that fifty three percent of Americans find credible, which is the most depressing statistic. I've heard in weeks on CNN they told us. It's Donald Trump is a problem. Social media's the problem. What do you think the idea is, obviously the this is this is a world. Which Ben Shapiro can be called a member of the right? Ben Shapiro who has been attacked by the alright more than any other person can be called a member of the alt-right Candice Owens, whom we love can this owns was called on media a sometime Hitler apologist mortga get to that in just a minute. So they hold a hearing on white nationalism. Right. And a funny thing happened, the Republicans trolled the Democrats who obviously run the house and the run the committee. They trolled the how the the Democrats by inviting Candice to speak. All right. So CNN runs a story about this. And the caption doesn't even mention what happened. Okay. It does not mention what happened is Representative Lou there's califor- Ted lieu from California shows video at hate crimes hearing of Candace Owens discussing Hitler as if she were the target of the investigation. Now, let's let's remember what can the set about Hitler? Because as we all know whenever right winger mentions Hitler, we. Saw this happen to Ben at the March for life immediately. There's an uproar no matter what he said. What Ben said was he wouldn't kill baby Hitler because he's not Hitler yet. He would take baby Hitler away from his family his family. And I was so thrilled that there was a baby that Ben wouldn't kill that. I thought I've that was a lovely thing to say. But in fact, they made a big fuss about it completely over nothing. What happened in this meeting was Candace was asked by a member of the audience about nationalism in western politics and Owens, brought up brought up our old friend Adolph, which is always a mistake, by the way, because they're always going to step in it, you know, and she said, I don't have any problems with the word nationalism. I think that the definition gets poisoned by elitists that actually want globalism globalism is what I don't want whenever we say nationalism. The first thing people think about at least in America is Hitler. He was a national socialist. But if Hitler just wanted to make Germany Great and have things run. Well, okay, fine. The problem is that he wanted. He had dreams outside of Germany. He won. Globalize her point obviously being that that Hitler was a globalist. Not in fact, a nationalist. She wasn't looking or I mean, whatever whatever you say about canvas let's not call her suicidal. Hitler wasn't exactly a friend to the black man. Just not like is not like she's saying, oh, what a wonderful idea Hitler ad because he's a white. You know, you're gonna call Kanza white supremacist. I mean, it doesn't make any sense. So she comes to this hearing and Ted lieu dishonestly pulls a little clip of this. And makes it sound like she's praising Hitler and Kansas just ripped him apart and watch Jerry Nadler, try to shut her down. I mean this. She's she's already given the speech about how the Democrats were the clan. The Democrats are the people who have kept black people down all these years. And so there after her there after blood listen to this exchange. I think it's pretty apparent that? Mr Liu believes that black people are stupid and will not pursue the full clip in its entirety. He purposely, presented an xtrac. Nick strategist. Suspend for moment. It is not proper to refer disparagingly or to a member of the committee. The witness will not do that again witness may continue. Sure, even I was called despicable witness may not refer to member. The committee is stupid. I didn't refer to him as stupid. That's not what I said. That's not what I said at all. You didn't listen to what I said. May I continue. As I said, he is assuming that black people will not go pursue the full to our clip, and he purposefully extracted he cut off, and you didn't hear the question that was asked of me he's trying to present. As if I was launching a defensive Hitler in Germany, when in fact, the question that was asked of me was returning to whether or not I believed that Hitler was whether or not I believed in nationalism. So you know, if this the other way around if these were Republicans picking on a black woman who was a democrat. You know, that we would be hearing about how the couple of men miss misrepresented this woman and then bullied her tried to bully her into silence. You could see right there that she did not call loose stupid. She said that Lummus think black people are stupid, then Nadler said, oh, you can't call loose stupid. I mean that is dishonest and it's bullying an attempt to silence a black woman. But you'll never hear about that on the air. And here's what they were trying to silence that clip that you just heard that's been going around the internet. It's got like a million hits. But that's not what she was there to say what she was there to say was this, and this is the truth. There isn't a single adult today that in good conscience would make the argument that America is a more racist or more white nationalist society than it was when my grandfather was growing up, and yet we're hearing these terms center around today because what they want to say is that Brown people need to be scared, which seems to be the narrative that we hear every four years right ahead of a presidential election. Here are some things we never hear seventy five percent of the black boys in California, don't meet state reading standards in inner cities like Baltimore within five high schools and one middle school, not a single student was found to be proficient in math or reading in two thousand sixteen the single mother would single motherhood rate in the black community, which is at twenty three percent in the nineteen sixties. And my grandfather was coming up as at a staggering seventy four percent today. I'm guessing there will be no committee hearings about that. There are more black babies born there are more black babies aborted than born alive in cities like New York, and you have democrat governor Andrew Cuomo Cuomo lighting. Buildings to celebrate late term abortions. I could go on and on my point. Is that white national right nationalisms, not do any of those things that I just brought up democrat policies did. Good for you. Great stuff. That has great stuff. All true. You know, it was true. Because the Washington Post said she turned a serious inquiry into a farce what she did was she exposed a farce as a farce that was really one of her finest moments. It was absolutely terrific. White nationalism has been at a steady state for thirty years. It has been at a steady state for thirty years. It is a sucky anti western ideology, white nationalist and leftist agree that the west is defined by whiteness. It's conservatives who know it is defined by its ideas. It's ideas about liberty is ideas about the dignity of the individual. It's ideas about a God who cares about us and forgives us. That's what western civilizations defined by both white nationalist and leftist agree that is defined by its whiteness. They both think the same things because they both violate rule one. That is what's happening. But you here's a piece from the Wall Street Journal. Excellent piece from Joe craven McGinty afar. Right. Stream est crimes rising. No. There has been a steady rate. The she is quoting here. From from Michael Jensen, a senior researcher at start the national consortium for the study of terrorism and responses to terrorism at the university of Maryland, he says there's been a steady rate of far-right extreme crime since at least nineteen seventy so pardon me. I misspoke that's fifty years when we started collecting data. What has changed is the emphasis on reporting far, right extremism? It produces the perception that there is a new increase. It's not true. Seth Barron writing and city journal talks about the fact that almost all of the world's extremist violence all of the world's extremist violence is concentrated in a handful of regions. We're very few white people live. It's almost all Islam violence almost all of it almost all of it is as long as violence. That's the threat to the world. However as Seth baron continues and city journal in areas where whites do live, America, Canada Europe. Australia New Zealand white nationalist, indeed perpetrators significant proportion of the relatively uncommon acts of extremist violence. Remember Obama talking about how he shouldn't worry about. Islamist violence because you had a bigger chance of slipping and hurting yourself in the bathtub remember when Obama said that and Steven pinker says that in his book enlightenment now, he says, oh, they're just trying to make you afraid. But the numbers don't read it. You have a better chance of being hit by whatever lightning than being killed by a terrorist. But you know, in in a country that has is majority white they're going to be a lot of white people who are terrorists. But the thing is the New York Times, and these other people they list, they have a very very strange way of counting. What what is it a white nationalist crime or even an extremist crime? They they list the AD L the guy before the anti defensely Anti-Defamation League, they they list things like a clan member who was killed by his wife who is also a clam member, and they call that an extremist crime. I mean, these are very much statistics that are being messed with. And what is the point? The point is social media is dangerous, right. Singers or dangerous if if the Andrew klavan or Michael Knowles or Ben Shapiro goes on Twitter and start saying, gee, you know, the individual individual freedom should be protected. He can be shut down for anything because he's inspiring some clown somewhere with a rifle who's going to kill innocent Muslim people. That is the narrative they're building. It's untrue. They are lying incident of white nationalism isn't going up. It's again, it's a disgusting idea. It's a stupid anti western anti-christian idea. It is a steady state. It is a danger. There's no question about it. But it is a very tiny danger. Just like Obama said about Islam Islam, which is a much larger danger around the world. They are talking about this because they want the right to shut right wingers down on social media. That's all it is. It's crisis mongering, which is a sign of guilt and trying to stifle the scent, which is a sign of guess what? Guilt. They are guilty because they're wrong. And they know they're wrong. Another crisis, by the way, just on a just on another subject really is this Muller report. You know, the attorney general bar is in front of congress. And he's testified he went there to testify about the department of Justice's budget. And of course, they blindsided him with a bunch of questions about the mother report. And they're all of this the crisis, and all this stuff was really interesting about this is the rules that are hampering Muller from releasing the report which he says he will do within a week. He says he will do it within a week, but the rules that are keeping him from doing it a rules that were put in place when the Democrats became hysterical because the star report about Bill Clinton abusing women in line about it. The star report came out, and it was released to the public and they were upset about that. So they put rules in place to prevent that from happening. So quickly bar is following those rules, and the left is media is saying well, those star report was released. Yes. After the star report was released they made new rules that are hampering bar. However, there was one piece of news wasn't. One piece of news in these bar in these bar hearings. That was kind of overlooked in this whole all the news about when he was going to release the report, and that is that he says that he is investigating the department of Justice. Not just the inspector general who was already investigating how the investigation into Trump started Barr says he the department of Justice is going to investigate it too. And when he was asked why this morning today's hearings. This is what he said, this is cut thirteen one of the things I wanna do is pull together all the information from the various investigations that have gone on including on the hill. And in the department and see if there are any remaining questions to be addressed. And can you share with us? Why you feel a need to do that? Well, you know for the same well for the same reason, we're worried about foreign influence in elections. We wanna make sure that during elect I think spying on a political campaign is a big deal to big deal generation. I grew up in which is the Vietnam war period. People were all concerned about spying on antiwar people and so forth by the government. And there are a lot of rules put in place to make sure that there's an adequate basis before before our law enforcement agencies get involved in polit political surveillance. I'm not suggesting that those rules were violated. But I think it's important to look at that. And not just I'm not talking about the FBI, necessarily, but intelligence agencies. More broadly. So bar may investigate. How this Russian hoax got started. If the Democrats were looking for a catastrophe that could be that could be for them. All right. We got the male coming up. I gotta say goodbye. Stop believes like this is like one of those Chinese tortures with a drip things on you. Anyway, it's we say goodbye to Facebook. And you do come over to daily wire dot com, and subscribe, it's a lousy ten bucks a month a lousy hundred bucks for the full year. You get the leftist tumbler, and you get to ask questions in the mail bag, and I will solve all your problems for a hundred bucks a year that I mean that that's a good deal. Come over to daily wire dot com. All right. A male. Now. That's when you're supposed to have the screen for all right from Brayden high are there any areas in which the private sector is outdone by the public sector in other words in which the government can do things better than a private business. No, there are no areas where the government can do it better. But there are areas where it has to be done by the government. I mean, take the military the military if you wanna buy a screw in the military. You get screwed. You get, you know, the a screw costs you one hundred million dollars. Right. The military is incredibly inefficient incredibly bureaucratic doesn't have to be that way. If it was run by the private sector. It would be it would operate better. I mean, it was still be our great military, but would operate better with things would cost would be kept down because it'd be competition and bureau bureaucratic red tape would be cut. However, you cannot have individuals running army in a free country. That's not the way it should be. You can get get together. A a an emergency. You can get together. Militia. But the main army that that was one of the reasons that's one of the reasons you have the right to bear arms. That is mainly the reason you have the right to bear arms is because when the constitution was written. And they said the federal government is going to run the army the state said, well, how will we protect ourselves from the federal army and the answer was citizens will have the right to bear arms. So in an emergency. You can put together a well ordered militia that was the argument, and, but but you can't even so it would have to be the state government doing it because you can't have governments run by individual guys. They can't have me, you know, Clayton's army coming by and saying, you're not a Bank Clayton's rules. Although actually that would actually be an improvement. I guess so. Yeah, you could have that. But other for other people you can't have all right from Jake f-. But but no, the private sector could do a better from Jake Andrew. I'm looking for advice on how to behave in my current situation. My girlfriend, and I have been dated dating for about two and a half years. We met and got together or first semester of law school, we've discussed marriage. We both agree with you'd like to get married. However, I've yet to propose traditionalist. In me wants to propose now because I'm excited to start this new chapter, and I think it's wrong to data girl for years. However, the other traditional side of me knows that we have yet to graduate law school passed the bar, and I have no employment secured yet. I know having these ducks in a row and important to her and her family, there are also important to me, and then protect particularly the lack of employment in many ways, it makes me feel like a little boy unworthy of making her a wife. Not the man I wanna be any thoughts on balancing, these two words, and what is the best way to approach the situation. Yeah. I mean, first of all you're mischaracterizing, this this is not your traditional or traditional urge against another. This is one traditional urge against fear. Ask the girl to marry you ask the girl to marry you. And then go and get a job. So you can support her if she has a kid, and that's what she wants your you want you want to know how you're acting like a little boy, you're not acting like a little boy because you don't have a job you're still in school. You're going to graduate your hope, hopefully, you'll get a job soon after that. You're acting like a little boy because you're not asking the goal to marry you what he. I mean, this just it it just pure rationalization and fear. You asked a I crave you the answer. I don't to be that art on you. But that's the that's the real answer from Corey, dear, Mr. Cleveland, I'm addicted to the devils cocaine anger. I don't wanna be though, I wanna be like you look up to you like a father or like the father. I want to be the anger that I've carried with me for so long as tearing my life apart. And I don't know what to do. Sometimes I wonder if my family is better off without me. And that thought keeps me up at night. How can I turn this around? So I can do better for my son. How can I be more? Like, you eight Corey first of all good for you for knowing that this is a problem. I mean that is that's really really important thing. It is really important to look in the mirror and say, I am screwed up. Something is wrong. I did it it saved my life. You have to do it. You've done it. Good for you ninety to get help you need to get help. If not therapy anger management. Whatever it is you need to do you need to get help. I mean, you're not going to be able to get through this wire you angry. You don't know. You know, it's probably. Something in your past probably things that have happened to you probably something that's twisted inside some not. There are people who make a profession out of untying those knots. Go find one of them if you wrote me a letter and said, I've got this big problem. I've got this enormous swelling in my side. You know, tell you of it tell you to go to a doctor who fixes swellings insides. That's what you do. There are people who deal with anger go. Find one of them. Good for you for knowing you got a problem, but go solve it because it will ruin your life, and it will ruin your son's life as well from through. Hey, Andrew, a big fan of the show and all the great entertainment you've created. I've just started another kingdom. And absolutely love it so far. I also love knowing that not every piece of media. I enjoy spawned from the Hollywood left. So I've always had this question. But in the last couple of years have found it very hard to ask or talk about since it occurred in my family from a Christian perspective, what are your views on forgiveness and going to heaven? If someone commits suicide I heard someone say, it's an unforgivable sin, which I find disturbing. I always enjoy your hearing your wisdom on personal matters. And would love your take. This. Thanks for everything. You do. First of all suicide is a disaster. Okay. I've been around it. It's not a good thing that people think it solves their problem, and it is a permanent solution to what usually is temporary problem. I mean, you know, the worst the closest I ever came to suicide my youth. I was weeks away from solve breaking through and solving. So many of my problems. I thought I was in hell, I was really just in a small tunnel. And the light was very close. So suicide is a problem. It leaves behind utter wreckage utter devastation. It destroys the lives of the people who love you. It leaves them angry and guilty and feeling just awful. It is a disaster. The question you asked about whether there's forgiveness for suicide is question that is that you don't have to answer. Okay. I don't have to answer because we don't get a vote. We do not get a vote on who gets into heaven. This is one of the misuses of religion. As far as I'm concerned, it is not one of the uses of religion to determine who gets into heaven because guess what? One guy gets the vote. He. Gets all the votes, and he's taking care of it. It's in his hands. You don't have to worry about that. Which you have to worry about is doing the things that show that you believe in that guy this things that like treating your neighbor loving your neighbor like yourself loving, God himself showing the kind of forgiveness that has been shown to you for who you are. You know, people commit suicide in all kinds of tragic situation. Sometimes just because they're depressed some times because they have some kind of personal difficulty that could be cured in time. Some people kill themselves because they have a fatal illness, and they don't want. They don't want their family to have to deal with it. You're reading another kingdom the front piece to another kingdom is a quote from CS Lewis. Nobody knows any story, but their own no-one no-one is told any story, but their own you don't know what a what another person's relationship with. God is you do not note another person's relationship with God is it's not your job to judge. So whether or not people can be forgiven for. Is not a question we can answer. But the question we can't answer is whether it's a good thing to do. And it's almost always a disaster for the people you love most and the people you'll leave behind from Austin, Andrew, what do you think about Christian standing on the street corner and sharing the good news? I've never heard of helping any someone come to Christ. And I know a lot of people including myself avoid them when we see them many people think it's requirement. If you're going to be a Christian, how important you think it is? I think it's completely unimportant. I think it's useless. I don't think it doesn't anything. I think it's almost is very unlikely. I mean, there's nothing wrong with sitting outside and having a place where people can come and ask if they want to ask I think that buttonholing people I think is really off. Putting I really disturbs me when people try to convince people argue that you have to do it because it's the right thing for you to do, but they're not arguing that it actually is effective in converting people if actually effective in bringing people to Christ. Now, I could be wrong, maybe this works. Sometimes if it does then go out and do it. But I think the best way. To bring people to Christ be honest about your beliefs and to live in joy in the joy of Christ. And if you're not living in the joy of price, you should find out why and fix that could be a psychological problem, not a spiritual one. So I, you know, I think a lot of a lot of direct evangelical ISM e evangelism. I it's not helpful. You know, it's just not helpful. If if I'm wrong, if it is then that's that's a good thing. If it's a good thing if you know how to do it. Well, it certainly was great that Billy Graham. I think brought a lot of people to religion and helped a lot of people. So that kind of event evangelism. I think is worthwhile. But buttonholing people and getting in their face. I don't know it just doesn't sound effect to me. From Nathan, my wife, and I of almost two years just had our first child, we are both Christians and had no issue morally at the time using birth control. And we were actually on birth control. When she got pregnant, even though we were wanting to wait to have children. We both agree. This is one of the best things that has ever happened to us. But after spending time with my son, I have felt guilty for trying to prevent him from being here by using contraceptives. Should I feel guilty for not wanting to have them even though now I wouldn't change it for the world. Thanks. I love the show and I loved another kingdom. And I'm getting my wife to read it. Now. You know? No. I mean, come on. What what what what good is the skill doing? What what is the skill improving? Why is it is it changing or deciding not to use contraceptives now and have as many children as as as come along? I mean, there's nothing wrong. I I don't believe there's anything inherently wrong and using contraceptives. I disagree with the Catholics on this. I think that, you know, having the family that you want. When you want it is as helpful thing. Not a not a bad thing. I think a lot of people, you know, a lot of people have had hard times through the years with having more children than they could handle. And I don't think you need to do that. Now that you have of this wonderful technology of of contraception. I think contraception has caused a lot of problems at has taken caused people to lose their moral minds and forget that sex is still an important act between two people not just to kind of meeting new organs. And I think contraception has had a lot of bad effects but used properly just like antidepressant medication used properly. I don't think it's a bad thing at all. You were not. It's a silly thing to say you were trying to keep your son from being born, you didn't know your son. You didn't know that was who was going to be born you should not feel guilty about it. If you don't wanna use it don't use it. If you do want to use it use it. That's that's my my opinion. From benjamin. My sister is in need of serious help ever since she was in an emotionally and sometimes physically abusive relationship. She hasn't been the same for mental health is very low. And sometimes she talks about killing herself all my life. I've seen her struggle with medical issues and our weight, and I've never known her to take responsibility for things that she can fix on her own. I told my mom, she needs a therapist. She tells me no she needs Jesus though. I do agree that God can help. I'm not sure she has faith. I know one day. My sister will have to make a turn around. But she is almost already almost thirty years old. I love her in one or fit to fix herself. But she just won't. And I don't know how to help. Thank you to you. And the daily wire, listen, you can't force somebody to save themselves and hectoring them and badgering them is not going to help. It's not going to help her. I suspect, you know. Of course, she needs Jesus. But that doesn't mean she doesn't also need a therapist. You know, she probably does need to therapists, you probably need somebody to talk to who understands these problems different levels of human beings. You know, the spiritual level is one level that sometimes your cycle. Logical problems can keep you from getting to the spiritual level. If you're constantly worried about depression, if you're constantly having bad relations with people bad sexual relations bad intimate relations of any kind, and you're depressed, and you're unhappy. You're angry over since that requires a doctor. I mean, just like just like you wouldn't again, you wouldn't say heal me. God you would say Hilmi God. And then go to the doctor. You know, you don't just say he only got and then not get help God helps those who help themselves. Now. What can you do not very much the most important thing, you can do is lover and be there for her and treat her with kindness and respect it's possible. You may see an opening in a conversation where you suggest that maybe a therapist would help her. But it's possible that won't come. You know, you can't save people. You can't save their lives. What you can do is put his put love in their lives, and that sometimes can have a curative affect and sometimes caused them to trust you enough to take some good advice. But most importantly should be there. For treated with love treated with respect. And hopefully that'll help her start to move away. From obviously, self destructive behavior. From Devon to Don Cleveland, the godfather, it looks like since Trump was elected Republicans have abandoned their position on fiscal responsibility. The deficit deficit has gone up drastically under President Trump, and no one seems to care. Should we be calling out our own side on this? What should be done about keep up the good work? You know, this has been a problem on both sides. I mean, nobody pays attention to this is not with Trump. I mean, it was George W Bush to he he almost doubled. I think the the deficit, and it is a serious serious problem. Probably. Unlike white nationalism, probably one of the biggest problems we face. I think that you know, the the right ended up hating Paul Ryan. And maybe Ryan was an ineffective speaker of the house. But he was the first guy to have the courage that I can remember to have the courage to suggest ways that entitlements would should be cut. That is where most of our debt comes from. It comes from these burgeoning entitlements that they can't they have no discretion over spending them they have to spend them. They should be pushed up they should kick in. I mean, look, I would create a whole different system. But I don't think that's politically feasible. I don't think that's going to happen. We can talk about it. But I don't think it's going to happen. But I think that you can be you can push up social security to make it more realistic. It was put in place to kick in sixty five when people died at sixty three that made fiscal sense. Now, people die at eighty you need another fifteen years to make the money that goes into social security. You don't do it right away? Do it over a generation, but we need to. Form entitlement. And there's absolutely no political appetite the do this as a phrase people use no political appetite. That means people are too scared to do it. They're afraid they'll lose their jobs, and that's what we should do. We should do it under Trump. We should have done it under Obama. We should have done it underbush. Not nobody has the the wherewithal the guts to do it. From dalton. Dear Andrew klavan been. Watching your show. Religiously for almost two years, and you've truly changed my life. I was hoping you could clear up your position on men and women as friends you said something along the lines of I can't understand the sentence. But I'll move on. I was hoping you could elaborate on what you feel about this a little more PSI, let my literature. Professor read your book, the great good thing. And he loved it so much that he wants to use it for one of his classes. Nice. Thank you with men and women in France as friends, I had female friends. You can't have female friends. My only point about having female friends is that you should be aware that there are that. It's a minefield their dangerous it just because your friend just because they feel is your friend doesn't mean you don't still wanna sleep with her doesn't mean in a moment of weakness, you won't sleep with her whatever your obligations, are you don't wanna violate that relationship that way, you should just be aware of it? You know, I mean, the problem the problem with sexual relations in America's because is that we don't talk. About them. Honestly, we don't talk about the fact that, you know, you're sitting there with your friend, and in in a moment, if you had a couple of drinks together in a moment of tenderness things may get out of hand in a way, they wouldn't if you're sitting with your guy friend that just wouldn't happen. So it's it's it's dangerous. You know, I mean, that's that's the thing be aware. People can people can exercise goodwill, and and restraint and have these things happen. But you have to be aware that this is something that's happening. And if you're married and your wife gets jealous, go with your wife. You know, I mean ser serve your wife first before you serve your friend. So I hope that clears that up. I mean, it's just it's just kind of messy little fact of life derived from William Andrew crank van. You've said that you believe opinions on abortion will shift with advancements in technology. Do you still hold this position given that liberals or viewing late term abortions more favorably? Yeah, I believe that look I think that sexual mores are changing as we speak. I think that the the left what the left always does is they come up with these stupid ideas they destroy people's lives right winger say, you're wrong wrong wrong. And then left this change their minds and blame right-wingers, that's the way it works. Okay. So what's happening? Now is they have the metoo movement. The metoo movement makes a lot of sense in a lot of ways women shouldn't be abused. But women also need to take care of themselves. Men should have a conscious care for women women need taking care of house that let let me put it. Bluntly, women need taking care of men need to take care of them. Even when they say, yes, sometimes you have to take care of them, take them home. If they've had too, many drinks, take them home. You got to you know, and let them go and leave him alone. You know, we have to do those things we have to act like gentlemen, and ladies the same things. With abortion. I think abortion is dropping off because people are getting the picture and they're getting the picture because we can take pictures. We can see these things. That's I haven't seen the movie unplanned yet. But I understand that's what it's about. It's about a lady worked for Planned Parenthood. And actually saw what an abortion looks. Like, why do you think abortion advocates tear down pictures of abortions? Why do you think they want to censor them? Why do you think they won't give a review to unplanned, or my film, the Gaza film? Why do you think because they don't want you to see the more people see the more? They will know the more. They will know that this is untenable. That's my hope it may go the other way, maybe co go the way that people become so cold, so alienated from their own moral sensibilities that we just start to each other altogether. You better hope that's not what happens because it starts with unborn babies and goes to babies and goes to children and that will happen. But no, I think that I think that people will wake up, and they will see what's going on the left look at the left as being hysterical about this. They're defending bad ideology by getting. More and more, hysterical, more and more absolute about it. That's what happens just before. Ideologies collapsed. I gotta go I will not be here tomorrow because I'm flying back to Los Angeles sad to leave leave hillsdale. And let me say thank you again to hillsdale all the people here.
