In this episode of the Plan B CRNA podcast, host Bobby Jones starts with a quote from the movie Rocky Balboa where Rocky speaks to his son about the importance of facing adversity and not giving up. Bobby emphasizes the importance of understanding the benefits of facing challenges and developing resilience, perseverance, and a sense of accomplishment. He highlights how famous personalities such as Abraham Lincoln, Oprah Winfrey, JK Rowling, and Nelson Mandela overcame their struggles and succeeded. Bobby presents five lessons from Rocky's life that one can apply to overcome adversities: accepting difficulties, seeking guidance and support from mentors, believing in oneself and one's abilities, embracing change and new opportunities, and never giving up. So now the question is, how can we apply these lessons from the Rocky movies to our own lives? What challenges are you currently facing, and how can you use perseverance and determination of Rocky to overcome them?

The host shares a story from history about Abraham Lincoln and how he prepared for a speech at the Cooper Union in New York, which ultimately played a key role in his election as president. The host shares three lessons we can learn from Lincoln's example: 1) focus on the message, not oneself; 2) preparation is key; and 3) embrace one's unique self.The host then discusses how focusing on oneself can hinder confidence and how shifting the focus onto the message and the transformation of others can help build real confidence. The host encourages listeners to embrace their imperfect selves and to focus on serving others, rather than seeking validation or approval. The episode concludes with a reminder that the message matters and that it's important to keep the focus on that.
Our guest this week is Mark Charles, Native American Activist, Author and Pastor. He has a lot to say about the state of our union and the Doctrine of Discovery. So what is the Doctrine of Discovery? I think Mark explains this clearly in an article he wrote in 2019 for the Faith and Leadership online magazine:"The Doctrine of Discovery is a series of papal bulls, or edicts, of the Catholic Church. The first one, from 1452, is titled Dum Diversas, written by Pope Nicholas V. It authorized the Portuguese to “invade, search out, capture, vanquish, and subdue all Saracens and pagans, … reduce their persons to perpetual slavery, and … convert them to … their use and profit” [as detailed in the follow-up Romanus Pontifex of 1455].It's the church in Europe saying to the nations of Europe, “Wherever you go, whatever land you find not ruled by white European Christian rulers, those people are subhuman, and their land is yours to take.”So this was adopted by European nations both [in efforts] in Africa to colonize and enslave people and by Columbus to land in this “New World,” which is already inhabited by millions, and claim to discover it. You cannot discover lands already inhabited. That's called stealing. The fact that we refer to what Columbus did as “discovery” reveals the implicit racial bias, which is that native people, people of color, aren't fully human."This episode does a deep dive into this dangerous doctrine and using his heavily researched book ("Unsettling Truths: The Ongoing, Dehumanizing Legacy of the Doctrine of Discovery") Mark gives us on a wild history lesson on its impact. We also discuss how the false deification of some of America's most prominent icons (ie: Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Abraham Lincoln, etc) may not necessarily deserve the praise they've received. There's enough in this episode to offend everyone!If you'd like to purchase his book, which we highly recommend, you can purchase it here: https://wirelesshogan.com/2022/10/27/unsettling-truths/Guest Bio:Mark Charles is a speaker, writer, and consultant. The son of an American woman (of Dutch heritage) and a Navajo man, Mark teaches the complexities of American history regarding race, culture, and Christendom in order to help forge a path of healing and conciliation for the nation. In 2012, Mark hosted a public reading at the US Capitol of the buried apology to Native peoples in the 2010 Department of Defense Appropriations Bill given by the 111th Congress.

Guest: Al Gore, Former Vice President and chairman of The Climate Reality ProjectAl Gore has been talking about all kinds of renewable energy for decades. The former U.S. Vice President, Nobel Peace Prize winner, and star of An Inconvenient Truth says it's “thrilling” to see things like wind power and sustainable forestry becoming the norm. But as humanity continues its struggle against the climate crisis, he says, it's worth remembering that political will is also a renewable resource. Effective storytellers and political organizers can overcome the entrenched political power of the oil and gas industry, and young people are flocking to work for climate-conscious companies that share their values. In this episode, Al and Joubin discuss Abraham Lincoln, Silent Spring, “father of the United Nations” Cordell Hull, downhill skiing, “pursuing a grail,” Watershed, An Inconvenient Truth, the Inflation Reduction Act, trolling Newt Gingrich, former CIA director Bob Gates, “let the glory out,” and Greta Thunberg.In this episode, we cover: Which of Al's many accomplishments is he proudest of? (01:52) What he learned from his parents, a pioneering lawyer and a U.S. Senator — and why he decided to get into politics (05:32) Being an underdog and finding the energy to fight injustice (16:15) The distinction between work and play, and commitments of the heart (19:28) The “hidden truth about human endeavors” (28:05) Becoming a great storyteller and getting instant, actionable feedback (31:25) Al's “close as brothers” partnership with President Bill Clinton (36:44) Accepting hardship and renewing political will (48:08) How does Al renew his own energy?

In Yosemite, for thousands of years before the discovery of gold, Native Americans traveled through and inhabited the area that the Sierra Nevada's melting snow spills dramatically over rocky cliffs on the walls into the Valley. Waterfalls that sit over three thousand feet above its floor. The treasures the park holds are unduplicated, each wonder differing from the next, each overwhelmingly spectacular. From 1850 to 1851 Native Americans and Euro-American miners in the area were at war, the Mariposa War. Some Euro-American men had formed a militia known as the Mariposa Battalion. Their purpose - drive the native Ahwahneechee people onto reservations. The Mariposa Battalion were the first non-natives to enter Yosemite. When this war ended, Yosemite was then open to settlement and speculation. Today we are going to talk about Jennie Curry, half of the curry couple who founded Camp Curry in Yosemite, and the history of the Yosemite Firefall. Season 3 features inspiring, gallant, even audacious stories of REAL 19th Century women from the Wild West. Stories that contain adult content, including violence which may be disturbing to some listeners, or secondhand listeners. So, discretion is advised. I am Andrea Anderson and this is Queens of the Mines, Season Three. Between 1855 and 1864, the Yosemite Valley had 653 visitors.After the completion of stage roads into the valley, the number rose to 2,700 visitors annually within its first decade. Abraham Lincoln signed the Yosemite Grant on June 30, 1864 and Yosemite Valley was placed under the protection of the state of California. The act preserved the valley for public use and recreation for all time. Some of the earliest visitors were artists, authors, painters, illustrators and photographers who came to publicize the Valley. Hotels were built and stagecoach companies started bringing tourists on the long journey in. Six years later, James McCauley, an Irish sailor and miner, arrived in Yosemite Valley. McCauley took a job in a sawmill, working alongside John Muir. McCauley soon built a horse trail from the base of Sentinel Rock up to Glacier Point. It was over a four-mile route which climbed 3,200 feet. At Glacier Point, he built a small shack which he named the Mountain House. McCauley charged a toll for the trail and the Mountain House provided concessions and lodging to its travelers. One night in 1872, McCauley and his school-aged sons kicked a campfire over the ledge at Glacier Point. The act quite literally sparked the idea of a money-making venture. A firefall. They would collect a fee from tourists in the valley during the day to build a modest fire and push it off the cliff that night. He experimented with versions of fireworks that he lowered on wires from Overhanging Rock nearby. The attempts seemed comparatively insignificant from the Valley floor. Finally he returned to the idea of pushing over the embers. McCauley bought both of his 8 year old boys' mules and the young McCauley twins attended school by riding them down the Four Mile Trail to the Valley. It took ninety minutes. While in the valley, they would collect $1.50 from tourists who wanted to see a Firefall, and then would ride the trail back up to Glacier Point, with a pack mule, packing wood and carrying the provisions for the hotel. On the Fourth of July, a collection often amounted to ten or twenty dollars. Busy days like that required hauling wood up for at least two days. McCauley soon leased Mountain House to others to manage, that was when the state of California took possession of all Yosemite claims in 1874. In 1880, he leased Mountain House back from the state. Fifteen years later, the facility was described as “almost uninhabitable”. The couple was evicted by the state in 1897 for failure to maintain. McCauley was killed accidently in an accident with a runaway horse, and the firefalls stopped. For years they were almost forgotten. In 1899, David and Jennie Etta Curry and their children took the wild ride down the old Coulterville Road with Driver Eddie Webb, to their new home in Yosemite Valley. Both had studied under Dr. David Starr Jordan at Indiana University, where they had both graduated from in 1883. It was unusual at the time for a woman to be a college graduate. Back east, both were Hoosier school teachers. The Curry's had a unique love for nature. Their previous work involved taking parties through Yellowstone with a movable camp. David and Jennie saw an opportunity. They received permission from the Guardian of the Valley, which was the state park at the time, to use the site of its camp. With seven tents, they opened a family campground at the base of Glacier Point, and they called Camp Curry. It is wild if you think about it, furnishing a business in a location like that, before means of modern transportation. Bare tents, burlap for the floors, mattresses, bed springs on wooden legs, clean bedding, chairs, and tables were brought in by wagon from Merced, which was one hundred miles away. Oilcloth covered cracker boxes' that were used for wash stands. There was a dining tent that seated twenty people. Camp Curry opened in June of 1899, charging $2 per night. The first affordable accommodation in the Park. Accommodations at the Sentinel Hotel were $4 a night. She was fondly known throughout the Valley as "Mother Curry". The power behind the throne. Her personality would truly contribute to their success. She was big in mind, soul and body and interested in people and in life. Of course, women's domestic skills were highly valued in the West, but like many pioneering women, Jennie had to find a way to broaden the roles beyond the Cult of True Womanhood, as mentioned in the book and previous episodes. Jennie helped plan additional guest services, made the beds, and packed the box lunches for adventurers. She would say that she had done every job around camp, from baking dozens of pies or loaves of bread to making lye soap from wood-ashes in a huge open kettle. All but the duties of the porter. The Curry's in fact, did do all of the work around camp. With the exception of one paid employee, the cook and two or three students from Stanford, who worked for a designated time in exchange for a week's room and board. During the first season, the camp expanded to twenty-five tents, with almost 300 guests in the season, of the 4,500 people who visited Yosemite Valley that year. Many of the guests came from Curry's educational network. It was a pretty good start. The crowds predicted Camp Curry would fail. It was cold, and isolated. The Curry's were determined. They had ideas. The memory of the firefall was eventually brought up, and Mr. Curry decided to revive the tradition on holidays, or when prominent guests were in the Valley. Men would gather wood on the Ledge Trail, and build a 12 foot wide, four foot tall mound of firewood. At four, they would light the fire, allowing the pile to burn down until it was a hill of glowing embers, for 5 hours until 9 o clock. Nine o'clock in Yosemite meant Fire Fall. It was an unwritten law that everything and everyone in the valley STOPPED at 9pm. David Curry would cup his hands to his mouth, raise his face toward Glacier Point and bellow: “Hello, Glacier Point!” without the aid of a sound system or even a megaphone. This is how Mr. Curry earned the nickname “The Stentor.” Stentor was that famous Greek of antiquity who could command 10,000 troops without a megaphone." The fire tender at the point would reply: “Hello, Camp Curry!” The rest of the exchange followed: “Is the fire ready?” “The fire is ready!” followed by Curry's roaring command “Let ‘er go Gallagher!” “Let the fire fall!” “THE FIRE-ER IS-SSS FALLING!” I am guessing that Gallagher was the regular fire tender. The two men at the top, using extra long-handled wide steel rakes, would alternate strokes to maintain a steady stream of cinders, plunging over the cliffs, to their resting place on a ledge 1,700 feet below. It was a skill. It took practice to be able to push blazing hot coals for an extended period of time, over a cliff in a steady stream down the granite wall. Simulating a continuously flowing waterfall. It was a blazing stream of thousands and thousands of individually discernible red and gold sparks floating down the cliff in complete silence, the sparks flying away like shooting stars. Fifteen minutes later, the fall would grow smaller until it became a mere thread of gold which drew the curtain of night, before darkness descends. Break The railroad reaching El Portal in 1907 made travel to the gold rush in California much more accessible. For the park, it skyrocketed the ability of making improvements in equipment and efficiency. Jennie no longer needed to bring in furniture, food, in fact everything by wagon from Merced. The train ended only fifteen miles away, and the road there was easy. She was able to raise the comfort level of the camp for her ever increasing number of guests with better kitchen equipment, dressers, bed frames and rugs. The firefall continued each night and held 20 minutes of enchantment, where thousands of onlookers felt something in common for that short period of time. Yosemite's grandeur was on full display, how unspeakably tall were its cliffs and how quiet its forest. The act, performed every night for many years, etched the surface of the granite, leaving a 1000 ft white strip. From 1913 to 1916 the Yosemite Firefall tradition was halted by the park service over a disagreement between David Curry and the Assistant Secretary of the Interior. David Curry died in 1917, just before the Firefall was reinstated. Jennie, with the help of her children, carried on with running and expanding Camp Curry, on lease from the government. The tradition carried on for decades, the song “Indian Love Call,” popularized by Nelson Eddy and Jeanette MacDonald in the 1936 film “Rose Marie,” was eventually performed while the fire cascaded down the rock face. So much for the silence I guess. The firefall was halted during World War II, when park facilities were used by the military. Jennie Curry died in October of 1948. The original purpose of the fire fall was to draw visitors to the park. Five years after Jennie's death, Yosemite received 1 million visitors for the first time. In 1960, President John F. Kennedy visited Yosemite and was, according to various sources, either held up by an important phone call or was still eating his dinner at 9 p.m. The firefall was held for half an hour so he could see it — much to the displeasure of the rest of the visitors. By 1965, annual visitation had reached 2 million. The firefall continued on for nearly two-thirds of the 20th century, the firefall occurred each summer night. Luckily, it never caused any forest fires, but other environmental impacts were mounting: Thousands of visitors were tramping through the meadows, driving their cars off the park roads, trying to get the best view, leaving litter everywhere. There were thefts from the hotels and campgrounds, when visitors would be absent or distracted and lastly, nearly every dead red fir tree accessible by road had been stripped of its bark for use as fuel. Rangers worked late nights untangling traffic jams, while idling vehicles spit out exhaust into the park. There were simply too many people. The park canceled the firefall. About 50 people gathered to mark the end of the tradition, on Jan. 25, 1968. 55 years ago from the recording of this episode. Although the Glacier Point firefall is a thing of the past, a natural, even more awe-inspiring, phenomenon that goes by the same name at Horsetail Falls remains. The organic illusion appears for a few weeks each February. Light from the setting sun hits the eastside of El Capitan at Horsetail Falls at a precise angle seems to be molten lava rushing 1,570 feet to the valley floor, creating a natural "firefall." Ansel Adams captured it on film for the first time, in 1940. The natural Yosemite Firefall can be finicky. Several factors must converge to trigger the Firefall to glow. First, there has to be an adequate amount of snowpack for Horsetail Falls to be flowing and the temperatures must be warm enough to melt the snow. The sky also needs to be clear at sunset. If conditions are cloudy the sun's rays will be blocked, and Horsetail Fall will not light up. If everything comes together and conditions are just right, the Yosemite Firefall will light up for about ten minutes. To see Horsetail Fall glowing blood red is an almost supernatural experience. The sun hits Yosemite Valley at roughly the same angle in October, but the lack of runoff prevents the same phenomenon. The discovery of Horsetail Falls is not well documented. There is no doubt that the Awahneechee Indians who lived in Yosemite Valley for hundreds of years, most likely knew of its existence, but there is no evidence that they passed the knowledge to the white settlers. Love that. Makes perfect sense. The local lore of “elmer” is linked to the Fire Falls. In the 1930's, a child by the name of Elmer would drift off with his friends or something to their own place to watch the Firefall and every night. It was a common thing in Yosemite to hear after the Firefall, his mother calling him back to camp: EL-MER- EL-MER- EL-MER. It all leads me to wonder, what is the most spectacular thing i nature that you have ever seen?

"It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us, that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion, that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth." That is the peroration from possibly the greatest speech ever written, Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address. The final words have been a rallying call for the voices of liberty and democracy not just in the US but across the world. However, those voices have been met with a growing chorus pushing back on the ideals of democratic governance. The debate over whether we are in a democratic recession has become a mainstay of modern political discourse, and world leaders are increasingly casting the world in manichean terms of democracies vs. autocracies. That is the context in which our guest this week, Martin Wolf, wrote his latest book. The Chief Economics Commentator for the Financial Times and one of the preeminent thought leaders in the West on economics and politics, Wolf is the author of a number of books, with his latest one, The Crisis of Democratic Capitalism (2023), covering all the most pertinent issues shaping the globe today. What is ailing democracy? What reforms are needed? What is the relationship between capitalism and democracy? These were just some of the questions that we covered during this episode. There is also a policy discussion for our Patreons including the merits of Starship Trooper's citizenship policy, and a discussion on changing voting laws away from one person one vote, not to ranked choice voting, but something far more interesting.

Barack Hussein Obama, President of the United States for eight years, told us during and as he left office that WE THE PEOPLE, and in fact the whole world, lived in the age, the era of POST-TRUTH.That means, said one scholar, that we live in the age of the LIE. If our Federal Government is any indication, that is surely the truth.POST-TRUTH is an adjective defined as relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion that appeals to emotion and personal belief.POST-TRUTH was declared Oxford Dictionary's WORD OF THE YEAR in 2016, thanks in part at least to Barack Obama.The corruption of the truth is certainly happening in Europe. There is a certain teaching at work where students are taught to sneer at the truth because it is no more than an:EURO-NORMATIVE CONSTRUCT.In fact, some university professors have gotten to the point where they argue that any speech which opposes the left-wing narrative is VIOLENCE. In short, certain words anathema to the radical left are viewed as not only hate speech but actual VIOLENCE itself. Therefore, these radical professors state, that to respond with actual violence is merely self-defense! Our world, my fellow Americans, and Christians, has come to that.How then can we function as a people? What can we believe, how do we communicate, if there is no such thing as truth, absolute truth, or:HOW CAN WE LIVE?This new assault, professorial and academic (radical woke) assault on truth has led to violence, riots, destruction of property, assaults on persons, breaking of laws within punity, tearing down of historical statues, burning and pillaging as first fruits of this new age of unaccountability. The mob rules. This unchecked mob action is what Abraham Lincoln called years ago the:MOBOCRATIC SPIRIT. Even then, in the 1860's, Lincoln believed that this radical, unchecked spirit would destroy the American republic if in fact it were left unchecked. There seems to be a sense today of a total lack of accountability, the law of the land is broken within punity, district attorneys fail to prosecute and hold accountable, judges are far too lenient and criminal behavior expands. It is the very beginning of a very tragic day and age, and it has the seedlings of destruction for the very American republic itself. WE THE PEOPLE are threatened internally now more than ever, and much more so than externally.The assault on our institutions, principles, values can well produce what some scholars call a:CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS.Our judicial system, our judges in so many ways ignore the constitution. These judges are labeled:LIVING CONSTITUTIONALISTS.In short, society does not conform to the constitution, but the constitution is interpreted and applied in accordance with the prevailing standards and lifestyles current and contemporary. The battle wages judicially with these judicial renegades and radicals against the strict interpreters, these so-called ORIGINALISTS who believe the constitution should be literally applied no matter the circumstances. These internal threats indeed challenge the very existence of our American republic and remind us of the warning of founder Benjamin Franklin that the founding fathers gave us a republic in the form of a constitution:IF YOU CAN KEEP IT.In many ways today, it looks as though we will not be able to keep it.John Adams, an illustrious founding father, wrote that the constitution so constructed:“WAS MADE ONLY FOR A MORAL AND RELIGIOUS PEOPLE. IT ISWHOLLY INADEQUATE (ADAMS SAID) TO THE GOVERNMENT OF ANYOTHER.”That sentiment was bolstered by first president, George Washington, who warned in his farewell address that:“RELIGION AND MORALITY WERE INDISPENSIBLE SUPPORTS OF A SELF-GOVERNING REGIME”.Free government, free people, freedom itself, depended upon close ties with and strong belief in religion and faith. Our political institutions were invented by men for whom religion was a lodestar, and reason was the holy grail, and civic virtue was an inexhaustible resource.As a result, Thomas Jefferson famously wrote for the original constitutional convention, these words:“WE HOLD THESE TRUTHS TO BE SELF EVIDENT: THAT ALL MENARE CREATED EQUAL, THAT THEY ARE ENDOWED BY THEIR CREATORWITH CERTAIN INALIENABLE RIGHTS, THAT AMONG THESE ARE LIFE,LIBERTY, AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS.”These inalienable rights, essentially God-given, were in fact the lodestar of the constitution, the very pillars of the constitution itself.The founders intended the constitution to be literally interpreted, that The United States would be governed by just laws linked to religion and objective standards of right and wrong. It seems as though little of that applies today. So many of our laws are not enforced. Our constitution is virtually interpreted away, and it is almost impossible for WE THE PEOPLE to know how to live.Strict adherence to the text of the constitution, our history, traditions, and laws have been replaced by a living, organic, current interpretation of right and wrong.Everything WE THE PEOPLE hold dear, believe in, and was part of traditional and historical America is under attack, everything. That includes and, in many ways, especially so religion. Morality is relevant. There are no absolutes, and truth as we have always known it based on fact, right or wrong, has been replaced by emotion and worst of all, personal belief. For Christians, scripture, the Bible is absolute truth, the inspired Word of God. More than ever, WE THE CHRISTIAN PEOPLE, must stand up, defend, and profess a new, energetic and commitment faith to truth, scripture, law abiding living, professing and believing aggressively, publicly, and uncompromisingly in our eternal faith in Jesus Christ. The right to do so is under attack as never before. It should be the duty of every Christian to know the Bible as well as possible, to read and study it daily, and to know the constitution of the United States, to read some part of it and study it daily as well. Otherwise, the freedoms we now enjoy in Christ and Constitution may well be lost and once lost:LOST IN AMERICA FOREVER!
Who Wear There by the Travel Brats
Visit the White HouseWhile you can't actually enter the White House, you can take a self-guided tour of the grounds and snap some photos of the iconic facade. The Smithsonian MuseumsThe Smithsonian Institution is home to 19 museums, galleries, and the National Zoo. Whether you're interested in art, history, or science, the museums offer something for everyone. Some of the most popular Smithsonian museums include the National Air and Space Museum, the National Museum of Natural History, and the National Portrait Gallery. National Museum of American historyThe First Ladies' inaugural dress exhibit was one of my personal favorites at the National Museum of American history. This exhibit also included pieces of china from some of the presidential administrations. The National Archives MuseumThe National Archives were fascinating, and seeing the actual constitution was surreal. Don't forget - no pictures!The Monuments and MemorialsNo visit to DC is complete without seeing the city's monuments and memorials. With their mighty stone pillars, delicate engravings, and somber yet heroic sculptures, I was in awe. All within walking distance, the monuments were the highlight of my trip. My favorites were the Lincoln Memorial, the WWII Memorial, the Vietnam War Memorial, the Korean War Memorial, and the Washington Monument. The Lincoln MemorialThis iconic monument was built to honor the legacy of President Abraham Lincoln. It's a great place to reflect on American history and enjoy stunning views of the city. The National MallThe National Mall is an iconic green space stretching for two miles between the Lincoln Memorial and the US Capitol Building. Here, you can explore a variety of monuments, memorials, and museums, as well as take in stunning views of the city skyline. The National Gallery of ArtA close second on my highlights, right up with the Monuments, was the Washington National Art Gallery. This incredible museum houses a world-class collection of artworks, from ancient to modern. Whether you're a painting, sculpture, or photography fan, you'll find something to admire here. From Monet to Dega, this has one of the most spectacular art collections in not only the country but the world. It was so stunning we got stuck in there for an entire day from opening to close.Washington National CathedralMy husband's favorite stop on our DC adventure was the Washington National Cathedral. Washington National Cathedral is an iconic landmark of the nation's capital. Located in Northwest Washington, DC, it is one of the most recognizable landmarks in the city. The cathedral has a long and rich history, built in 1907 and dedicated by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1912. It is a Gothic-style structure built in the tradition of classic European cathedrals. It is one of the largest and most impressive churches in the world, standing at the height of 300 feet and with a length of 600 feet. The interior is breathtaking, with its ornate details, including stained glass windows, intricate carvings, and marble pillars. The cathedral is also home to many important national events, including the funerals of presidents, state funerals, the National Prayer Breakfast, and royal visits. It is also the site of special events such as concerts, lectures, and services. The cathedral is also home to a number of significant monuments, including the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, which honors those who lost their lives in World War I, and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. We took a tour, came just in time for an organ demonstration, and returned after dinner for evensong. The music was spectacular.Capitol HillCapitol Hill is one of the most iconic neighborhoods in the United States. Located in the heart of Washington, DC, it is home to the US Capitol building and a host of other important national landmarks. The area is steeped in history, and its streets are lined with many of the city's most impressive monuments, memorials, and government buildings. For visitors, Capitol Hill offers a variety of attractions, including the US Capitol building, the National Mall, and the Smithsonian Museum. Tourists can explore the area's many museums, galleries, and monuments or take a walking tour of the historic buildings and monuments that line the streets. Capitol Hill is also home to a vibrant nightlife, with many of the city's hottest restaurants, bars, and clubs.Check out the National ZooThe National Zoo is home to a variety of animals, from pandas to tigers. It's a great place to take the kids for a fun and educational day out. The Museum of the BibleLocated just blocks away from the National Mall and the White House, the Museum of the Bible offers eight floors of interactive exhibits, displays, and educational experiences that tell the story of the Bible and its influence on our world. The museum's mission is to invite all people to engage with the Bible through a unique and interactive museum experience. Visitors can explore the Bible's history, its impact on world cultures, its influence on art, music, and literature, and the ways it has changed the lives of millions of people.WeatherMy husband and I visited DC in October, and the weather was freezing and drizzly when we arrived, but as soon as we went to Marshalls and got hats, coats, and scarves, the next two days were sunny and in the 60s & 70s. When you go to DC, check the weather, especially if you are going in the Spring or the Fall. Weather can still be very uncertain at those times of the year. However, the most beautiful time to visit is in April, during the blooming of the cherry blossoms. Where to StayI recommend staying in Georgetown. This way, you can walk anywhere and don't rent a car, just uber. The city is so beautiful that walking is an event in itself. We started our adventure by staying our first two nights at the Westin in the heart of Washington, within a 10-minute drive of the Smithsonian, the National Zoo, and the White House. This 4-star hotel is 1.2 mi from Capital One Arena and 1.3 mi from National Mall. This Westin had a tiny yet cozy room and a great bathroom with a soaking tub.Then we moved to the Glover Park inn for some different scenery. Glover was artsier with a spacious room, a lovely dining area, and a shabby chic vibe. On the downside, it was further out from all the attractions except for the Washington National Cathedral.We ended our adventure by staying in the Royal Sonesta. This spot was in another artsy nook of DC that had a very cool 70s vibe, and our room had a super nice bathroom.The three other hotels we recommend are the River Inn, the Lombardy, and the Modus Hotel. Best EatsWe ate some of the best food I had all year when we were in DC, from GCDC grilled cheese sandwiches to Chef Geoffs for a fabulous outdoor lunch, Circa for dinner, and Captain Cookie & the Milk Man for a late-night snack; we ate our way through DC and loved every minute of it. Some other note-worthy restaurants were Bindaas & Juniper, Roti (lunch), North Italia (dinner), Tonic At Quigley's (lunch) & GW Delicatessen (lunch).The National Theater & the Kennedy CenterThere are many theaters in DC, but my two favorites are the National Theater and the Kennedy Center. We went to the National Theater on this trip to see the Tina Turner Musical, and the show was spectacular. The entire production was phenomenal, from the lights, sound, and actors. This was, hands down, one of my favorite theaters of all time because it was smaller than the Kennedy center but tactfully designed to be just as grand. The entire staff was so friendly, and we sat in the center bottom row. It was the best seat in the house!If you happen to be traveling to DC in April for the Cherry Blossoms, and like the weather, the National Theater has some must-see shows coming up; Jagged Little Pill (March 14-26), My Fair Lady (April 6- 9), Disney's Aladdin (April 19-30), and Beetlejuice (May 16-28). Walk over early, and you can visit the WWI memorial, which sits right outside.As soon as we left DC, I was dying to go back. From the tall, proud monuments and rich history to the melting pot of people and the exciting city life, I could even see myself loving DC as home.

What is “alt comedy” anyway? On this episode of Mr. Trap, we take you back to the mid-1990s, when finding hip comedy with an intelligent perspective was as difficult as finding weed and pornography. Which is to say, pretty difficult! As we survey Mr. Show's first season, we share some of our favorite bits and talk about what made Bob and David stand out in the larger world of 90s humor, from Saturday Night Live to In Living Color. Geoff and Peter tell us what makes Bob's Droopy character so special, we all have a laugh about Tom Kenny's surreal Abraham Lincoln impression, and David tells the story of his multiple, bizarre real-life encounters with the actual Bob Odenkirk and David Cross.

A man's man. A Patriot's Patriot. A distinguished veteran as a U.S. Navy SEAL. And now a newly elected U.S. congressman. What a resume this week's Team Never Quit Guest brings to the table as he brings an eye-opening discussion related to the role of a Congressman. Once a co-host of this very podcast, Morgan's conversation with his twin brother Marcus Luttrell makes for an episode you don't want to miss. Morgan's life has perennially been one of service to others. A 5th generation Texan raised on a horse ranch. At an early age Morgan learned the importance of hard work, discipline, and personal responsibility. He turned his strong values, deep love for his country, and his passion for helping others into a career of distinguished service. Morgan Luttrell brings bold leadership, and a “Put America First” mentality to his role as a U.S. Congressman. In this episode you will hear: • There's an energy that lives [in a mob situation] and if you become a part of it, you may find yourself in a situation like “I didn't intend to be here.” (3:59) • The DC Police did an amazing job of showing restraint [at the January 6th situation]. There were situations where they were getting close to death. (4:41) • The criminal justice system [in DC] is, you could say, “broken.” (5:38) • DC is a dumpster fire. They wanted everybody that lives in DC to have the right to vote, even if you're a Chinese citizen working for the Chinese government; if you're a Russian citizen working for the Russian embassy. (6:27) • Another role and responsibility of the lower chamber of congress is we control the purse strings. (9:19) • Passing legislation and controlling government money is what congress men and women do. (11:18) • We're not at the cliff edge; we're over it. We spend more than we take in. (13:14) • I don't care about red or blue anymore. We're here – 31 Trillion dollars in debt. I don't care which administration did it. (13:49) • We, in the past decades, have been increasing our debt limit, all the way up to 31 Trillion. (14:32) • It needs to be said that if we don't increase the debt ceiling and we default – that's a problem. (21:52) • There's a point in time we'll be paying more on the interest of our debt, than we pay on our defense budget. (23:19) • When the cameras are on, people will turn the switch on and they become actors. (24:59) • Abraham Lincoln coined the word “lobbyist” because people would hang out in the lobby of his hotel and when he'd come down, they would just bum rush him and say we this, this, and this, and this is what we'll do for you. (30:14) • I would never complain about this job, because I fought so hard to get it. (39:03) • The border's a dumpster fire. (42:23) • It's very humbling to walk through the hall of the Capitol. There's so much history. (43:33) • The best part of my job is I get to meet so many people. (63:51) • The hardest part about campaigning is that it's 24/7. (64:37)

Make It Count: Living a Legacy Life
Rea Berg, author and founder of Beautiful Feet Books talks today about another passion of her—besides children's literature—her love of the incarcerated and how she and her husband of 41 years have recently switched their "church home" to the California Men's Colony here in San Luis Obispo. It all started with books and story—teaching her own children, creating Beautiful Feet Books to bring classics back to life, creating curriculum and then seeing the transformative power of storytelling and the Word changing the lives of those maybe most forgotten in our society. REA WILL HOST A TWO-BOOK GIVEAWAY THIS WEEK--TWO OF HER FAVORITE CHILDREN'S BOOK FOR TWO DIFFERENT WINNERS. COMMENT TO BE ENTERED! For the book giveaway, she will present the 75th Anniversary Edition of Abraham Lincoln by Ingri and Edgar Parin D'Aulaire, and the beautiful exclusive edition of Anno's China by Mitsumasa Anno. Rea teaches a weekly course to help men earn a four-year seminary degree through The Urban Ministry Institute, and her husband, Russ mentors groups of 12 for discipleship and accountability through Yolkfellow Prison Ministry. Some gems from today's podcast: Men behind bars are exactly like you and me, deep down in their heart and personhood. When you're put away, you have to draw upon a depth they most of us don't ever have to do, simply to live with contentment, joy and hope. My faith has been strengthened by the faith of these men who've experienced salvation to the uttermost, past all regret and remorse, experiencing full repentance. Seeing Jesus in these believers in prison convinced me anew of the transformative power of redemption and how good our God is. Rea Berg loves seeing abandoned and broken things brought back to life, like antique houses, classic children's books, and especially lives—like those of the menshe is privileged to work with at her local prison. Rea has had the honor of bringing many classic children's books back into print, such as the D'Aulaire biographies, the Journey books of Mitsumasa Anno, the works of James Daugherty, the Obadiah books, and many more. Through her company Beautiful Feet Books, she has crafted numerous guides for teaching history and geography through literature. Rea has a graduate degree in children's literature from Simmons College, Boston. Follow Rea on Instagram at reaberg, or email her at email@example.com.

Illinois lawyer Abraham Lincoln had a record of political failure. In 1858, he had lost a celebrated Senate bid against incumbent Stephen Douglas, his second failed Senate run, and had not held public office since one term in Congress a decade earlier. As the Republican National Convention opened in mid-May 1860 in Chicago, powerful New York Senator William Seward was the overwhelming favorite for the presidential nomination, with notables like Salmon Chase and Edward Bates in the running. Few thought Lincoln stood a chance.

President Abraham Lincoln and his wife Mary were not the only people sitting in their box at the Ford's Theater to watch the production of "Our American Cousin" on the evening that the President was assassinated. Major Henry Rathbone and his fiance, Clara Harris, were also sitting in the box and played witness to the whole horrible scene. Clara's satin dress was splattered with blood. The Major never recovered from the horrific event and it may have led him to do a horrible thing later. That event and the assassination have all left behind an energy, part of which has spawned tales of ghosts and a haunted satin dress.

In the Market with Janet Parshall
This week on In The Market with Janet Parshall we remembered the life and service of America’s 16th President Abraham Lincoln during one of the most divisive and difficult times in American history. We provided solid, bible based answers for loving parents who are struggling with how to relate to their prodigal child. Our guest, a respected Christian apologist, brought truth to the most common contradictions that people claim about the Bible and explained why so many atheists choose not to believe in God’s unchanging Word. Opioid addiction has devastated lives across our nation. But our guest offered hope to those who struggle with severe chronic pain through the use of alternative strategies that address that pain but without creating a potential life threatening addiction. Our husband and wife team are once again ready to shine the light of God’s truth on the impactful headlines of the week.

(Wendigo: The Classic Canadian Cryptid) *** A man has a strange encounter with an alien in Germany, and in an odd way ends up playing a game of catch with it – using an eerie, transparent ball. (Polish Man Meets German ET) *** The story of Edward Mordrake is fascinating and horrifying – with the poor man having an evil face growing on the back of his head that he said he could converse with, and that said horrible things to him. But how much of the story is true, and how much of it is pure fabrication?

(Strange Sea Creatures) *** In 1936 a series of holdups escalated into armed robbery and eventually murder, all carried out by a trio of teens. (The Baby Bandits of San Francisco) *** During the Kentucky Meat Shower Of 1876, Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs was real life when meat purportedly poured from the heavens. (The Kentucky Meat Shower 1876) *** People sometimes say they experience a kind of floating, weightless feeling when in bed – but one man's bed floated all the way to the ceiling. (Bed Rising) *** We may or may not ever see an actual alien invasion of our planet. But if we do, scientists are now saying the extraterrestrials would not be here to eat us – and they explain why.

Not that it did him any good. (A Cowardly Lover) *** They labeled him “The French Ripper” – and to this day, we still have no idea how many victims were killed by Joseph Vacher during his bloody reign of terror in 19th century France. (The French Ripper) *** The legend said it was made of clay, and given life by mystical means. The Jews created it as a means of protection – so the story goes, at least. We'll look at the legend of the golem – and see if there is any truth behind it. (The Golem) *** It is Abraham Lincoln who issued the Emancipation Proclamation, freeing the slaves. But did he get the idea for this historic legislation from beyond the grave? (Lincoln's Messages From Beyond) *** In 1866, a woman named Laura Foster was murdered. A man named Tom Dula was convicted and hanged for the crime. The crime now lives on, in one of the most famous folk songs ever recorded. (Hang Down Your Head Tom Dooley) *** Some say this is a nothing short of a miracle, while others are downright dubious. A unique Bible, continues to spew out an unidentified oil – and so far, scientists are unable to explain it.
