For more than a century, California's approach to incarcerating people has gone mostly like this: Incarcerate them. But now, there's a program offered by the Cal State University system that helps incarcerated folks not only develop skills but also reimagine themselves — as people who could have lives after serving long prison terms, as scholars. Today, we're going to talk about this new educational opportunity for those on the inside with L.A. Times education reporter Colleen Shalby.More reading:They were supposed to die in prison.

Merry Christmas Michigan shooting: https://www.khq.com/news/authorities-student-kills-3-wounds-6-at-michigan-school/article_dec7aaec-41ad-5d7c-b72b-68cd78aecaea.html?fbclid=IwAR1D44wWeZ-I26PIcyLZZfDHusYax0Vmn6V2eEQ5zgQ2YHozapyT-u8R-Jg According to KHQ: “Authorities say eight people were wounded in an attack at a Michigan high school in which three students were killed. Oakland County Undersheriff Mike McCabe said at a news conference that two of the wounded were undergoing surgery as of 5 p.m. Tuesday and that the six others were in stable condition. He identified the three students who were killed as a 16-year-old boy and two girls, ages 14 and 17. Authorities say they received a flood of 911 calls shortly before 1 p.m. about an attack at Oxford High School in Oxford Township, a community of about 22,000 people roughly 30 miles (48 kilometers) north of Detroit. McCabe said deputies took the shooting suspect — a 15-year-old sophomore — into custody without incident within five minutes of arriving at the school. He said the suspect's parents visited him where he's being held and advised their son not to talk to investigators, as is his right. He said as far as he knows, the suspect had no prior run-ins with law enforcement.” Public schools are not safe for your kids. Dr. Oz, celebrity physician, launches campaign for Senate in Pa. as a Republican https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/elections/dr-oz-celebrity-physician-launches-campaign-senate-pa-republican-n1285109?cid=sm_npd_nn_fb_ma “Dr. Mehmet Oz, a physician known to national TV audiences, announced Tuesday that he will run for Senate in Pennsylvania as a Republican, throwing more uncertainty into the closely watched primary. "We are angry at our government and at each other," Oz wrote in guest column published by The Washington Examiner. "We have not managed our crises as effectively as past generations. During the pandemic, I learned that when you mix politics and medicine, you get politics instead of solutions. That's why I am running for the U.S. Senate: to help fix the problems and to help us heal." Oz, in a video tweeted Tuesday afternoon, specified that he is seeking the Republican nomination. Pennsylvania's Senate battle became a spectacle last week when former President Donald Trump's endorsed candidate, Sean Parnell, ended his campaign after his estranged wife was granted sole legal custody of their children in a case where she alleged abuse. Parnell denied the accusations. "Pennsylvania needs a conservative who will put America first,” Oz, echoing Trump, said in his announcement video. Oz, a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania's medical school and Wharton School who as recently as 2020 lived in New Jersey, registered to vote in Pennsylvania last year at the home of his in-laws, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported.” La County Sheriff Holding His Ground: https://twitter.com/BillFOXLA/status/1465507928241176580/photo/1 Can a city declare itself a republic? Calif. town just did According to News Nation Now: Fed up with COVID-19 regulations and vaccine mandates, the leaders of one California city have decided to take matters into their own hands. Oroville's City Council overwhelmingly voted to declare the town a “constitutional republic” earlier this month. What that means, according to the declaration, is: “Any executive orders issued by the State of California or by the United States federal government that are overreaching or clearly violate our constitutionally protected rights will not be enforced by the City of Oroville against its citizens.” What does it mean in practice? Oroville's mayor told the East Bay Times it “doesn't change anything.” “It's simply reminding people what kind of government we live under and that they do have personal choices and freedoms,” Mayor Chuck Reynolds told the Times. Proponents of the constitutional republic told reporters they were especially upset with California's requirement that children 12 and older eventually get vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to attend school. However, even after this vote, schools in Oroville will still be regulated (and largely funded) by the state. Oroville isn't the only California city to try and take a stand against the state's COVID-19 policies. Earlier in the pandemic, two towns decided to defy Gov. Gavin Newsom's shutdown orders for certain businesses, reports the Los Angeles Times. They lost some funding from the state as a result, according to the paper. The desire to secede isn't unique to California, either. The Washington Times and a USA Today columnist noticed the trend in 2020, pointing out that rural pockets of blue states are often the ones who want out. A few Virginia counties said they wanted to join their more conservative friends in West Virginia, but Adam Dean, a history professor at the University of Lynchburg, called the prospect of getting approval from both state legislatures and Congress “extremely unlikely.” Some residents in southern Oregon and far northern California have also been trying to form a 51st state of Jefferson for nearly 80 years. But as The New York Times reports, the creation of the new state would not only require California and Oregon to give the OK — Congress would have to sign off, too. So can a city decide it's fed up with its home state and go it alone? The short answer is no, at least not by merely putting the matter to a city council vote. In theory, the city's citizens could take up arms and go to war to fight for independence. But it would literally take a civil war. And since cities don't have armies, it's easy to see why even a large metropolis would be easily outmatched — not to mention Oroville, California: population 20,000.

Biden Bans Travel to South America: If you recall, Biden tweeted this when Trump banned travel from China: Well now that Biden banned travel to/from South America, it is not racist, because Jen Psaki said so: Roll clip: https://twitter.com/BreitbartNews/status/1465411536801914881 File this under New Zealand has left the reservation: LA begins enforcing strict mandate requiring proof of vax https://abcnews.go.com/Health/wireStory/la-begins-enforcing-strict-mandate-requiring-proof-vax-81457466?cid=social_fb_abcnp According to ABC news: “Enforcement began Monday in Los Angeles for one of the strictest vaccine mandates in the country, a sweeping measure that requires proof of shots for everyone entering a wide variety of businesses from restaurants to theaters and gyms to nail and hair salons. While the latest order aimed at slowing the spread of the coronavirus took effect Nov. 8, city officials spent the past three weeks providing business owners the information and resources business they need to comply. “Nobody wants to penalize anyone,” said Sharon Tso, the city's Chief Legislative Analyst, whose office drafted the enforcement rules. “That's why we've been prioritizing education.” A first offense will bring a warning but subsequent ones could produce fines running from $1,000 to $5,000. Inspectors with the Department of Building and Safety will enforce the mandate, and the city hopes to eventually get assistance from the LA County Department of Public Health, Tso said. She didn't immediately know if any warnings or citations were issued on Monday. Los Angeles is among a growing number of cities across the U.S., including San Francisco and New York City, requiring people show proof of vaccination to enter various types of businesses and venues. But rules in the nation's second-most-populous city, called SafePassLA, apply to more types of businesses and other indoor locations including concert halls, museums and convention centers. A sign reminding customers to be prepared to show their vaccine cards hangs at the Muddy Paw Coffee Shop in the Eagle Rock neighborhood, where owner Darren Laborie said he's thankful that the vast majority of his regulars have happily complied with the shifting regulations over the past year and a half. “We have to adapt to whatever rules are coming at us. And our customers go along with us,” Laborie said. Those that don't want to wear a mask or show vaccine proof can sit in the outdoor patio or take their coffees and pastries to go, he said. One year ago, Los Angeles was becoming the state's epicenter of the worst spike of the pandemic in California. By January an average of 500 people were dying statewide every day. To guard against another spike in cases, deaths and hospitalizations, the LA City Council voted 11-2 last month for the ordinance that requires people 12 and older to be fully vaccinated to enter indoor public spaces including sports arenas, museums, spas, indoor city facilities and other locations. Retail stores and shopping malls are exempt. Negative coronavirus tests within 72 hours of entry to those establishments would be required for people with religious or medical exemptions for vaccinations. Customers without proof can still use outdoor facilities and can briefly enter a business to use a restroom or pick up a food order. Business trade groups have said the mandate will sow confusion and could present safety concerns for employees tasked with checking customers' vaccination status. Laborie shares concerns that the rules could place “an undue burden” on small business owners. “A lot of businesses can't afford to have employees spending their time at the front door all the time. They just don't have the staffing,” he said. Melanie Bolen happily showed her vaccine card before having lunch inside Fred 62, an upscale diner in the city's Los Feliz neighborhood. “I mean, I'm fine with that," Bolen said. "If that's what's needed to help get things over with this pandemic, I'm all for it.” While many cold-weather states are seeing sharp increases in cases, California's per capita rate has been among the nation's lowest for two months and that has kept hospitalizations relatively low after a late-summer surge. In the last two weeks, Los Angeles County hospitalizations have fallen about 10%, mirroring the statewide trend. State forecasts show a continuing decline through Christmas. Among LA county's roughly 10 million people, 82% of eligible residents now have received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose and 74% of those eligible are fully vaccinated, according to public health officials.” Remember that in 2021, where we had lockdowns and access to a vaccine, we had more COVID deaths this year, than we did in 2020. Lockdowns don't work, the vaxx don't work, and all these health bureaucracies need to go! Twitter Crackdown: Video And Photo Sharing Banned Without Consent Under First Day With New CEO https://www.dailywire.com/news/twitter-crackdown-video-and-photo-sharing-banned-without-consent-under-first-day-with-new-ceo?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=benshapiro According to the Daily Wire: “One day after Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey resigned from the company he founded about 16 years ago, Twitter, under new CEO Parag Agrawal has issued a new ban that restricts sharing videos or photos without consent on the platform. The new addition was listed on Twitter's blog on Tuesday, saying, “NEW: media of private individuals without the permission of the person(s) depicted.” The new policy is designed to “help curb the misuse of media to harass, intimidate, and reveal the identities of private individuals, which disproportionately impacts women, activists, dissidents, and members of minority communities.” “Beginning today, we will not allow the sharing of private media, such as images or videos of private individuals without their consent. Publishing people's private info is also prohibited under the policy, as is threatening or incentivizing others to do so,” Twitter also noted. Twitter's guidelines will also leave room for interpretation based on “context.” “Our existing private information policy includes many exceptions in order to enable robust reporting on newsworthy events and conversations that are in the public interest,” Twitter's guidelines state.” Lastly, lets get an update on former disgraced Governor Cuomo and his brother “objective journalist” Chris Cuomo: Roll clip: https://www.today.com/video/chris-cuomo-s-link-with-former-ny-gov-andrew-cuomo-draws-new-focus-127500357987 What strikes me about all this, is that CNN claims to be an objective news source and yet they continue to hire journalist that cover up major news stories, or that masterbate on live company conference calls like Jeffrey Toobin did. CNN really is a cesspool of liars, molesters, and power hungry zealots. They really do hate the truth. Closing This is Gabriel Rench with Crosspolitic News.

The final day of November is upon us, but will soon give way to December. Eleven named for nine becomes twelve named for ten. Path dependence shows up in mysterious ways.

Founded in September 2019, Code for Charlottesville has worked on projects with the Legal Aid Justice Center, the Charlottesville Fire Department, and the Charlottesville Office of Human Rights. Visit codeforcville.org to learn about those projects. Emergency meetingCharlottesville City Council no longer has an interim city manager on the way. Marc E. Woolley had been expected to begin work tomorrow. Council went into closed session at 12:30 p.m. today for an emergency meeting to discuss a personnel matter. Councilor Heather Hill read the motion.“Pursuant to § 2.2-3712 of the Virginia Code, I hereby move that City Council close this open meeting and convene within a closed meeting as authorized by Virginia Code… for the purpose of discussing of the withdrawal of the appointed city manager and the discussion, consideration, or interviews of perspective candidates for appointment or employment by City Council,” Hill said. Woolley had been expected to fill the vacancy left when former City Manager Chip Boyles resigned in late October. Boyles had been hired in January to replace former City Manager Tarron Richardson, who resigned at the end of September 2020 after about a year and a half. Earlier this month, Richardson sued the city for breach of contract related to a non-disparagement clause in his severance agreement. Richardson had replaced Maurice Jones, whose contract was not renewed in 2018 after nearly eight years in the job. Along the way, two other people have served as interim city manager.After publication of this newsletter, Daily Progress reporter Ginny Bixby reported that Woolley sent a letter to Charlottesville Mayor Nikuyah Walker last week.“I am writing to inform you and your fellow Council members that after careful consideration and in consultation with my family, I am withdrawing my application to become the Interim City Manager of the City of Charlottesville,” Woolley wrote. “This was not an easy decision for me and I want to thank the Charlottesville City Council for the opportunity and wish the residents of Charlottesville all the best.”Last week, the Planning Commission held a work session on the capital improvement program for fiscal year 2023. Charlottesville has a AAA bond rating that reflects a well-run and stable city. Commissioner Hosea Mitchell asked if that would continue based on the string of leadership vacancies and he’s answered by Krissy Hammill, a senior budget and management analyst. “Will the high turnover of city level management impact our bond rating?” Mitchell asked.“They do look at management as part of that analysis,” Hammill said. “To date that has not really been at the forefront of a lot of those conversations keeping in mind that the single-most goal of a bond rating is to assess out ability to pay our debt.”The city is currently being managed by Deputy City Managers Ashley Marshall and Sam Sanders. Council next meets on December 6.

Two of three bills filed in the House of Delegates are charter requests for two towns to amend their charter to move municipal elections from May to November, and a third would remove the sunset date for a sales exemption on the sale of gold, silver, and platinum bullion. In the Senate, there are five bills so far. One would require the Virginia Employment Commission to establish a family and medical leave program, one would require school principals to report incidents to law enforcement, and another would require absentee ballots to be sorted by precinct. Another would limit the time a Governor’s executive orders could last under an Emergency Declaration, and another would require votes of the Parole Board to be individually recorded under the Freedom of Information act. The General Assembly convenes on January 12. (view pre-filed bills)Scottsville Holiday HappeningEarlier this year, the General Assembly adopted legislation allowing localities to create Designated Outdoor Refreshment Areas (DORA) where ABC licenses can be granted in the public realm. That means people can move from establishment to establishment while carrying alcoholic beverages in a designated cup. Several localities across Virginia have passed local ordinances allowing such events. This Saturday, the Town of Scottsville will offer this ability during A Holiday Happening. According to Town Administrator Matt Lawless, this is the third time the DORA has been used. “I was interested to kind of follow the progress of this setting up in state law,” Lawless said. “It originated with a neat mix of communities around the state from far Southwest to Richmond looking at how they could promote tourism and support their Main Street businesses.”Lawless said Scottsville has so far held an event to promote an art opening in September. “We had a Virginia of the Arts grant for installations in vacant storefronts,” Lawless said. “Folks can take out the food and drink and stroll around outside.” A second event held at Halloween for a puppy parade on Valley Street and Main Street. Lawless said these are not tailgate parties, and people can’t bring their own beer. The permit just allows people to consume beverages off premises. “So maybe what you’ve seen in the past on these events is like an outdoor event with a strict perimeter defined like with a snow fence,” Lawless said. “We don’t have to do that anymore. The drinks are labeled where they came from in a disposable container. So if we were checking on what is that and where did you get it, you could point to the licensed restaurant where you got it.”Lawless said sandwich boards suffice to mark the boundaries of the DORA. This Saturday’s event runs from 10 a.m to 8 p.m. with the ABC permit in effect from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m“If you’re ever visited a European Christmas Market, it might be kind of like that where we’ve got have the special farmer’s market with special arts and craft sales, musicians playing on sidelots, and then hot cider and mulled wine for sale at our restaurants that you can take up and down the street,” Lawless said. Lawless said a safety plan is created for each event and reviewed by ABC to make sure there are enough people on staff to help with public safety. In the summer, Charlottesville City Council was briefed on the idea but it was met with a lukewarm response with some Councilors concerned with unequal treatment. This story came about due to a story in the Cardinal by Megan Schnabel that takes a look at how Danville, Roanoke, and the town of Tazewell have used this ability for events.

The group consists of two Supervisors, two School Board members, a Planning Commissioner, and a member of the public who happens to be a former Planning Commissioner. (view the presentation)“I suspect that each of us have items on the not-included plan that we’d like to see moved up but it is a balance,” said Supervisor Donna Price of the Scottsville District. “We cannot do everything.” Perhaps when you think of capital projects, big items like schools and sidewalks come to mind. The next CIP in Albemarle will likely have an item called Core Systems Modernization which will seek to speed up how the county does business. Andy Bowman is the chief of budget in the Finance and Budget Office. “The technology systems that we use across the county government are disjointed, they’re antiquated, and they don’t allow the community to interact with our government in a way that we expect,’ Bowman said. “Over the next few years, we’re going to be embarking on new financial systems, new human resources systems, and new community development systems related to systems that are connected and enhance our customer and our employee experience.”The job of the CIP Advisory Committee is to help staff develop the five-year program. There’s a target of about $131 million in funding that may be available through FY2027. “For funding in Fiscal Year 2023 to 2027, there is a total of $457 million in projects that was requested,” Bowman said.The budget chief also gave a status report on projects under way. “There is $151 million in projects that are currently appropriated and underway from prior years that extend into Fiscal Year 2023 and beyond.”Those projects include sidewalk installation, the Southern Convenience Center in Keene, and upgrades of the county’s General District and Circuit court in downtown Charlottesville. Future projects that are waiting to be funded include further phases of Biscuit Run Park, future school capacity expansion, and a convenience center in the northern section of Albemarle. Supervisor Bea Lapisto-Kirtley suggested one item she wanted more information on. “As far a project, I would like to make sure that at Darden-Towe our soccer fields are taken care of, upgraded, and when I say upgraded, regarding natural grass and putting in what needs to be done there to make sure that that’s a good playing field,” Lapisto-Kirtley said. Assistant County Executive Trevor Henry said a previous project had anticipated replacing the natural grass fields with artificial turf and adding lighting. Darden-Towe is jointly owned by Charlottesville and Albemarle.“Eventually that request was discussed in the calendar of 2018 and that was approved and bundled as part of the Parks’ quality of life projects,” Henry said. Henry said $2.5 million was approved for the project, with $2 million of that going for the installation of turf and the rest for the lighting. “That CIP request assumed use of cooperative contracts, meaning existing contracts in the state for both the turf project and the lighting project,” Henry said. “On a December 4 meeting of 2019, a concern was raised by a Board member about the procurement methodology and several series of questions around the efficacy of turf, environmental concerns.”Henry said staff returned with more information later that winter, but the pandemic put a hold on further consideration of the effort. “The majority of capital projects were paused or deferred,” Henry said. When some of the projects were unpaused, the Darden-Towe project was not one of them. “And it’s back in the queue of all the other unfunded projects that have been requested or formally requested through this process,” Henry said. Since then, the Parks Department request has placed further funding of Biscuit Run as a higher priority. The Parks Department has asked for $8.5 million for the next four years to move into further phases of that future park’s development. After being told by Henry that the natural fields are well-maintained, LaPisto-Kirtley said she would support continuing that practice. School Board Chair Kate Acuff made the pitch for funding to modernize the existing high schools, something that she did not see within the draft CIP presented to the committee. The county in recent years has invested in two high school “centers” rather than a fourth stand-alone facility.“Because a new high school would be $150 million and we were able to craft this plan that including upgrading all of our schools — Albemarle High School is 70 years old — as well as the Centers for a fraction of that cost,” Acuff said. “It’s disappointed to me to see that has dropped out.” Acuff also said that over a hundred classrooms are in trailers. She said the county needs at least three more elementary schools.“We’re over capacity at Baker-Butler [Elementary] which is a northern feeder pattern [school] and construction of Brookhill [Elementary] would address that,” Acuff said. There are also overcrowding issues at Mountain View Elementary. A 27,000 square feet addition is underway at Crozet Elementary but Acuff said a third school in the western part of the county will be necessary soon. Of that $131 million, the schools will have access to $77.2 million according to Chief Financial Officer Nelsie Birch. The next meeting of the group will take place on Friday beginning at 1 p.m. Special announcement of a continuing promo with Ting! Are you interested in fast internet?

Johnny Cash! Need we say more? Ok. Johnny and June play Caleb and Mattie, a couple down on their luck. Caleb thinks their prayers have been answered when they take in Rev Alden after an accident. Caleb passes himself off as a reverend friend of Alden's. His plan is to collect money from the people of Walnut Grove to help a neighboring town that had just been wiped out by fire and keep it all for himself and Mattie. Things don't go exactly according to plan, as this is Walnut Grove, and Caleb is so moved by the towns generosity that he gives up on his plan and leaves the town with considerable donations for the town in need.
We've reached THE END, FOLKS. Okay... not the end forever, but the end of the Old Testament! And no we don't do these episodes in order, so we WILL circle back to some things, but on this monumental occasion we just had to pull out all the stops and bring back the Bibleish Time Machine to visit 500 B.C. and our new friend Malachi the avant garde performer! In reality he was a prophet, but today you get to see him perform his greatest prophetic hits. This is not to be missed.

Friends of the Rosary: We might not see it, but faith, cultivated through prayer, is our richness on Earth. In yesterday's reading (Lk 17:11-19) Jesus Christ King of the Universe, author along with the Father and the Holy Spirit, of all things, reminded us that faith is saving us. The Evil Doer cheats us making us think that only what we physically see and hear is real. When you suffer a loss, as I experienced four weeks ago, your tiny world collapses. In despair, you seek answers. The only one that heals and responds is Jesus Christ and His divine Mother. Looking for social or work distractions and support from people without faith doesn't work at all. If you need to talk, do it with faithful relatives and friends. If they have experienced a loss, and see life through the lens of the true faith, you are fine. Folks living for God will share your burden and will inspire you to bring the cross. Ave Maria!

When positioning property for sale there are several factors to consider in regard to getting top dollar. Many homeowners feel that they need to spend money to complete improvements for the next owner of the home whom they have yet to meet. First, how could you possibly be able to accurately pick what the future buyer would want? How do you know they want terra cotta accent walls? What if they don't like that shade of blue? These are questions you should be asking yourself before you do any improvements to a property in preparation for sale. Keep colors neutral so you can appeal to the largest number of buyers. Cleaning and decluttering often bring more ROI than repairs do. In over 20 years of selling real estate, I've come to the realization that 90% of buyers will complain about the improvements you choose to make. If you are selling your current home, or perhaps one you inherited, consider first cleaning and decluttering. Have an estate sale or garage sale and get rid of all the extra stuff. If you are a home flipper, find a new construction model home in your market and go walk the models. Notice the colors they choose and the amenities they provide, those choices come from market research. Homebuilders put lots of effort into maximizing efficiency on new builds, and frankly, doing what they do can save you a fortune. I know home flippers that follow the other flippers they see in the market in regard to finishings and such without ever visiting a new construction model. What happens is a classic case of the blind leading the blind. One flipper makes a bad design choice and is quickly copied by the next ten flippers behind him. The end result is a bunch of crappy renovations that nobody wants. I recently had a home seller ask me if they should do any improvements to their home before selling. It was a really cool historic home located in a great neighborhood that was in full swing in regard to gentrification. Several homes in the neighborhood have been renovated making the neighborhood a crown jewel of the area. The seller's home did show some deferred maintenance but had curb appeal and was in an ideal location. This home would be a great renovation project for an incoming homeowner in a neighborhood that boasted pride of ownership. Because of the type of home, it was and the location, it would bring top dollar in its current condition with no money invested in improvements. I explained to the seller that I could bring them a buyer willing to pay between $550K to $575k for their home as is, no repairs or upgrades, just move out and clean.. Instead, they chose to list it with “the neighborhood agent” for $515,000 in August. They said the other agent had sold 50+ homes in the neighborhood which is what made them choose the local lady. They went on to say that the agent said they will need to replace the roof, A/C, refinish floors, paint, on and on which wound up costing them around $30k give or take to complete. The price dropped $16,000 twenty days after listing, then another $20,000 a week later, then $10,000 two weeks after that, two more weeks dropped the price another $10,000 and it finally went under contract on 10/15 with a list price of $459,000. It's still not closed so only time will tell what it sold for (assuming the agent can get the deal closed). In this case, the seller lost out on $146,000 or more ($30,000 of which was in improvements). All due to bad advice and an ineffective marketing strategy. To get top dollar for any property, the whole world needs to know it's for sale. You don't have to try to trick anyone by putting lipstick on a pig, instead, invest that money in your marketing. Run paid ads on Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, Twitter, Wall Street Journal (for higher-end houses), and so on. Make the house viral on social media. Doing so can often bring you more money than ever thought possible in your wildest dreams. I have so many true stories of how I have used purely marketing strategy to give my sellers heart palpitations when the offers start to roll in. This happens because everyone with eyes and ears knows the property is for sale. I truly believe there is a buyer for every house. In almost every instance, the reason a property isn't selling isn't a price problem, its a marketing problem. The buying public does not perceive the true value of the home because you simply have not found the right buyer. Without guerilla marketing finding the highest paying buyer will never happen. Folks, it's no rocket science to sell your next property at a price so high it sets the market, you just need to hire the right team to help you get it there. That team can be a Realtor or Wholesaler who is a marketing expert or a marketing expert that will bring cash-wielding buyers to your front door. Either way, unless you can get people to the front door in droves (without using price as a motivator) you'll never see top dollar and have to live with leaving money on the table.

Hiker discovers Hawaiian stream with 1.2% alcohol content https://notthebee.com/article/hiker-discovers-a-hawaiian-stream-with-12-percent-alcohol-content File this under Happy Thanksgiving and tell me God ain't good! According to the Bee: “A hiker in Hawaii's Oahu island was walking around when he sniffed out a familiar smell... alcohol. He followed his nose and it led him to stream 120 feet beneath a freeway. Once the hiker discovered the boozy brook, he contacted a local environmental activist, who alerted the Department of Health (way to ruin all the fun). A sample of the water was tested and it was found to contain 1.2 percent alcohol and .04 percent sugar – which is the same amount of alcohol in many low-ABV beers. They are looking at a spill from a Department of Transportation-owned storm pipe adjacent to the highway. The DOT has linked the spill to Hawaii's largest alcoholic beverage supplier, Paradise Beverages, which owns a warehouse across the freeway. But they are still unsure what is causing the spill.” California's Santa Cruz County mandates mask-wearing in private homes https://www.theblaze.com/news/california-santa-cruz-county-mandates-mask-wearing-in-private-homes According to the Blaze: “An indoor mask mandate has been reinstated in Santa Cruz County, California, after a surge in winter coronavirus cases has led to increased hospitalizations. The county health department is requiring that people wear face coverings in indoor settings, including in private homes. The mandate went into effect on Sunday at 11:59 p.m, after the county reported a seven-day average of 72 coronavirus cases per 100,000 people — placing it in the "substantial" transmission category, according to the CDC. "Unfortunately, a potential winter surge appears to be a significant threat to the health and safety of our community," Santa Cruz County Health Officer Dr. Gaill Newel said in a statement. Both people who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 and those who have not are required to wear face coverings indoors. Business and governmental entities are being told to require their employees to wear masks and to post signage at points of entry for their indoor settings to alert the public of the mask requirement.” Exemptions for sale: How a central Washington doctor helped workers dodge vaccine mandate https://www.krem.com/article/news/investigations/covid-vaccine-exemptions-for-sale-anna-elperin-awake-health-ellensburg/281-3fdbfa97-32fb-41b4-a25b-2394b0d38afd According to KREM: “In Ellensburg, doctor removed her mask as she entered a small medical exam room in October and began signing a COVID-19 vaccine exemption form for a first-time patient, without asking a single question about her medical history. The only way most workers who were opposed to being vaccinated against COVID-19 could potentially keep their jobs was to seek a religious or medical exemption before the Oct. 18 deadline. But such medical exemptions required documentation from a licensed physician, like Dr. Anna Elperin. A three-month KING 5 investigation found Elperin repeatedly signed and sold those mask and COVID vaccine exemptions to residents across Washington state, in some cases with no questions asked. The doctor wrote exemptions for patients who did not provide a legitimate medical reason to receive one, including people who sought to evade local and state pandemic-related mandates. Charging each patient from $150 to $200 for the forms, Elperin potentially raked in tens of thousands of dollars from medical exemption sales a month and profited from state, local and private company policies intended to reduce the spread of coronavirus. “What you just described is an ‘exemption mill,'” said Dr. Gabriel Bosslet, one of three national medical ethics experts consulted for this story and an associate professor at the Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis. “You hand over money, and I ask no questions and give you a piece of paper that satisfies the state that you have an exemption.” This investigation is based on the experiences of four undercover journalists who received mask and vaccine exemptions signed by Elperin this fall. Reporters also interviewed three former Awake Health employees, who said they watched the doctor sell hundreds of COVID-related exemptions without asking patients medical questions or conducting any medical exams.” Werkz: DNB Shan and his team at Werkz specialize in concealed carry holsters for pistols with lights.

Washington public schools lose over 55,000 students https://thepostmillennial.com/washington-public-schools-lose-over-55-000-students/?fbclid=IwAR2pEJb2PMu1ReiBHYmlrill76wIMEVA2StsGX64iahMYtd0Hrbzgcp7RlY According to the Postmillennial, I have a praise report to bring you: “It was revealed last week in a presentation to a state Senate committee that the "November 2021 forecast is, on average, 50,334 students or 4.5 percent lower than the February forecast, and 42,036 students or 3.8 percent lower than the June forecast for the 2021-23 Biennium." Many parents opted for private school, learning pods and home schooling. Parents told The Post Millennial that they chose other educational options. Parents cited multiple factors including that schools did not offer in-person instruction during the Covid pandemic, lack of safety on campus, teaching practices and curriculum based in critical race theory and radical, hyper-sexualized curriculum, as well as a substandard education.” And as sort of a side note at the end of the article, it says: “Less than 20 of Washington's 9,056 deaths from COVID have been children under 19.” 6 Senate Democrats waffling on massive social spending bill https://justthenews.com/government/congress/sen-blackburn-says-many-six-senate-democrats-waffling-massive-social-spending “With President Joe Biden's massive social spending bill facing an uncertain future in the U.S. Senate, most media attention has focused on two skeptical Democrats, Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona. But a prominent Republican says she senses more Democrats in the chamber who are facing tight 2022 reelection races are considering bolting from their party's $1.75 trillion signature Build Back Better legislation, which passed the House last week on a party line vote. "Not only is it Manchin, but you've got about five or six others in the Senate that are looking at their races, they're down in the polls, or they're tied up in the polls," Sen. Marsha Blackburn told Just the News on Monday. "And the Republican ballot is up. Joe Biden, his popularity is just unbelievably low. I mean, whoever thought he would be lower than Jimmy Carter. "It is harder every day for Democrats to support this abysmal bill," she said during an interview with the John Solomon Reports podcast. "And some of these House members who finally came around and voted for it. They might as well start cleaning their office out and heading home, give somebody their proxy to vote. They will not be reelected." Blackburn suggested Democratic support is weakening as the CBO found the legislation will add significantly to the U.S. debt. Americans realize those costs will be passed on to them, and fears grow that a massive injection of federal spending will only worsen persistent inflation. "All of this is going to be paid by people that are hardworking people, and Joe Biden said, 'Oh, I'm not raising a penny in taxes on anybody making under $400,000 a year,'" she said. "Well, that's not accurate. It's not accurate on a lot of different fronts. And people know this."” The Reformed Sage: MWF Plug + Logo + Unboxing The Reformed Sage loves biblical theology, evangelism, and coffee.

Let's talk Turkey! No, not the Butterball sitting in the Oval Office. I'm talking about the real thing, the big bird, 46 million of which we Americans will devour on this Thanksgiving Day. It was the Aztecs who first domesticated the gallopavo, but leave it to the Spanish explorers to "foul-up" the bird's origins. They declared it to be related to the peacock – Wrong! They also thought the peacock originated in Turkey – Wrong! And, they thought Turkey was located in Africa – well, you can see the Spanish were pretty confused. Actually, the origin of Thanksgiving is confused. The popular assumption is that it was first celebrated by the Mayflower immigrants and the Wampanoag natives at Plymouth, Massachusetts, 1621. They feasted on venison, furkees (Wampanoag for gobblers) eels, mussels, corn, and beer. But wait, say Virginians, the first precursor to our annual November Food-a-Palooza was not in Massachusetts – the Thanksgiving feast originated down here in Jamestown colony, back in 1608. Whoa, there, hold your horses, pilgrims. Folks in El Paso, Texas, say it all began way out there in 1598, when Spanish settlers sat down with people of the Piro and Manso tribes, gave thanks, then feasted on roasted duck, geese and fish. "Ha!" says a Florida group, asserting the very, very first Thanksgiving happened in 1565 when the Spanish settlers of St. Augustine and friends from the Timucuan tribe chowed-down on "cocido" – a stew of salt pork, garbanzo beans and garlic - washing it all down with red wine. Wherever it began, and whatever the purists claim is "official," Thanksgiving today is as multicultural as America. So let's enjoy! Kick-back, give thanks we're in a country with such ethnic richness, and dive into your turkey rellenos, moo-shu turkey, turkey falafel, barbecued turkey...

End Time Living David Heeren pt 2 My guest today is David Heeren. David was on our program back in July of 2021 and if you missed his great interview then, you can go to our archives and search for episodes 942 and 943. David Heeren has a life history of logical study of statistics. In fact, he is the statistician that created the system used today for rating basketball players and teams. And he created this way back in 1961 while working for the New York Knicks – and it is still used worldwide today! Amen! He knows numbers. He knows facts. He knows how to put them together to develop logical programs that really tell the story. David has spent the better part of the last 16 years studying the Bible and other references. His most recent book is https://amzn.to/2ZlDCcU (“End-Time Living: Despite Conflict and Hardship – All is Well!”) David says there is evidence indicating we have entered the early phase of the “end of days.” Yet, he remains optimistic. His book, https://amzn.to/2ZlDCcU (“End-Time Living: Despite Conflict and Hardship – All is Well!”) defines a Christian lifestyle that will produce fulfillment and joy – even under the prophesied duress of the end-times. David shares that no matter what believers must endure during the tribulation, and no matter how bad things get, those who stand firm for Jesus until the end WILL be Blessed! Amen! What are some future things that are beginning to take shape on the horizon now, that Jesus also referred to as happening in the end times? Our main focus should be on evangelism and sharing the Word with those who are lost an on their way to hell. I mean, if they persist in rejecting the Word of God and offer of salvation in, by and through Christ Jesus, that is there ultimate destination. But those efforts are being thwarted by laws and human powers now, more than ever. What should we be prepared for as the time draws closer to wrapping up, what is known as “The Christian age?” What kinds of things should we, individually and collectively as a body of believers, what kinds of things should we prepare for, good or bad, as that time draws near? We will be facing things that Christians have not faced since the Roman times, for the most part. How can believers prepare for what you are sharing with us – so we do not falter under the pressure? You say there is one important issue not being discussed in End-Time living. What is that thing? David, in your book (and in the Bible, for that matter), we are told that “those who endure to the end will be blessed." As we prepare for the “end of times” in this world, what will life be like for the believers who refuse to “bow” to the mandates of this world? David, this has been so interesting. How can someone obtain a copy of your book, https://amzn.to/2ZlDCcU (“End-Time Living: Despite Conflict and Hardship – All is Well!”) – is it available on Amazon? Folks, as I said in the beginning of this program, there is absolutely no doubt – and after talking with David Heeren today, there should be absolutely no doubt in your mind, that we are living in the last of the last days before all of this wraps up. Time, as we know it, is about to end. For believers, that is victory! We enter into our Eternal rest with Jesus and other believers forever. But for those that cling to this world – what they will be entering into is indescribable pain and torment – forever. We need to share the Gospel with everyone we meet. Especially our family and friends, start there. And, as David Heeren as detailed for us in his book https://amzn.to/2ZlDCcU (“End-Time Living: Despite Conflict and Hardship – All is Well!”) – we need to be prepared to stand for our Faith. Never wavering. How long should we be prepared to stand? For as long as it takes – even to the end. The scripture says, “Having done all to stand – stand therefore…” If you are prepared to stand forever, you will find out you don't have to stand there for... Support this podcast

End Time Living David Heeren pt 1 My guest today is David Heeren. David was on our program back in July of 2021 and if you missed his great interview then, you can go to our archives and search for episodes 942 and 943. David Heeren has a life history of logical study of statistics. In fact, he is the statistician that created the system used today for rating basketball players and teams. And he created this way back in 1961 while working for the New York Knicks – and it is still used worldwide today! Amen! He knows numbers. He knows facts. He knows how to put them together to develop logical programs that really tell the story. David has spent the better part of the last 16 years studying the Bible and other references. His most recent book is https://amzn.to/2ZlDCcU (“End-Time Living: Despite Conflict and Hardship – All is Well!”) David says there is evidence indicating we have entered the early phase of the “end of days.” Yet, he remains optimistic. His book, https://amzn.to/2ZlDCcU (“End-Time Living: Despite Conflict and Hardship – All is Well!”) defines a Christian lifestyle that will produce fulfillment and joy – even under the prophesied duress of the end-times. David shares that no matter what believers must endure during the tribulation, and no matter how bad things get, those who stand firm for Jesus until the end WILL be Blessed! Amen! Help me welcome back to the program, David Heeren. David, thank you taking the time to come back on and tell us about your new book! There can no doubt in the mind of any true, Spirit filled Christian believer, that we are living in the end days. None. In your studies of scripture, what are some of the events we are witnessing now and how do you relate them, what the Bible calls, “the end days?” The forward of your book is riveting. And it is spot on accurate as well. Could you summarize it for our listeners? I want to get your opinion on a couple of things… Do you see any relationship with the COVID outbreak and the End Times scenario of “pestilences?” What about the governments of the world instituting mask mandates and requiring everyone to get vaccinated. Not to mention their attempt to institute “vaccine passports” to travel, etc.? What are some future things that are beginning to take shape on the horizon now, that Jesus also referred to as happening in the end times? Our main focus should be on evangelism and sharing the Word with those who are lost an on their way to hell. I mean, if they persist in rejecting the Word of God and offer of salvation in, by and through Christ Jesus, that is there ultimate destination. Folks, there should be absolutely no doubt in your mind, that we are living in the last of the last days before all of this wraps up. Time, as we know it, is about to end. For believers, that is victory! I believe David Heeren's new book, https://amzn.to/2ZlDCcU (“End-Time Living: Despite Conflict and Hardship – All is Well!”) would make a great Christmas gift for everyone on your list this year. It is a Word in season that can change the destiny of someone you love and care about.

On March 10, 1943, under the orders of Adolf Eichmann, one of Hitler's architects of the Final Solution to the Jewish Question, railcars began rolling into the country of Belarus. The purpose? To transport all of the Jews of Bulgaria to the Death Camps of Treblinka located in German Occupied Poland. Bulgarian police began to round up Jews - going door-to-door as early as 3 in the morning. They were taken at gunpoint. Jewish collection centers were located in schools and other community centers. There was one problem, though - The Bulgarian People. You see, when the train cars began to arrive, the Bulgarian people united to save the Jews of their country. Although they did not know the Bulgarian Jews' final destination was to the death camps and gas chambers, some rumors had circulated the cities and towns. The Bulgarian Church led the opposition to the deportation of the Bulgarian Jews. If the Church allowed the Jews to be deported, they would have violated their obligations, the Rev. Boris Halapia stated. The word, WE MUST HELP. The whole Orthodox Church of Bulgaria came together - and sent a letter to the King, begging mercy for the Jews of the country. The Church also told the Chief of Police that they would not accept the mandate to deport the Jews from the country and would do anything possible to hinder the deportation efforts. Church followers began to arrive at the centers, and they told the frightened Jews that they would not let anything happen to them. Crowds protested across the country; the Church printed thousands of forged Baptismal certificates for Jews, risking their own lives. The falsification of faith - saved lives! It would take several months before Jews would return from hiding to their homes - much to the dismay of the Nazis. Hitler was furious. In a meeting with King Boris, he demanded the deportation of the Jews - Hitler went into a rage, King Boris recalled. Screaming; and going into a tirade, King Boris described - but Boris didn't surrender, not one inch. Boris told Hitler that Bulgaria needed the Jews for labor projects. Hitler did not believe the King, but he didn't want to lose an ally. He finally bought what Boris was selling and agreed, but only if all the Jewish men were relocated from the cities to labor camps. Some 20,000 Jews were indeed moved from the cities to the countryside - but not one of them outside the borders of Bulgaria. The deportation of the Jews of Bulgaria never took place. As a result, Bulgaria was the only country in Eastern Europe whose Jewish population remained the same throughout the Holocaust. It was known as The Miracle of the Jewish People Among the Jews of Bulgaria. This miracle was never made public immediately following World War II because the Soviet Government suppressed it - sound familiar? And Why? Because Communist Soviet Regime didn't want the credit of the rescue of these Jews given to a monarchy and The Church - both of which are enemies of The Soviet Union and communism. It would take the fall of The Iron Curtain in 1989 for this to finally become known. Folks, why do I tell this story? Is it because I am indeed a history nerd? Perhaps. But more to the point, I want to share that people can do many things when they come together for a common purpose. We are those people. As conservatives and challengers to our country's communistic push and pull, we are charged to protect what so many before us died to preserve. Granted, we are not coming together to save a race or population from mass murder and extinction. Instead, we are here to preserve the American way of life - that has been being attacked from within our borders. We now live in a society where we allow hundreds and thousands of tyrants in Washington DC to tell us how they think, believe, and parent. We sit back and buy into a system that government, not God, knows best. Music courtesy of Greg Shields Music. http://www.reverbnation.com/GregShields
Download Ezra 3-8 We are in the Nation Stream reading from the New American Standard Bible. 7streamsmethod.com | @7StreamsMethod | @serenatravis | #7Streams | Donate Commentary by Dr. Drake Travis Lord, our faith needs to be built, sometimes rebuilt. We can learn from Ezra today. Don't let us weep for what was [once upon a time] "back when". We want to build the Kingdom with you today. Amen. 3 - Seven months after returning to Israel and Jerusalem, everyone joined in and the Hebrews got the altar built. They offered sacrifices continually. It was worship, yes, it was also for fear of the non Hebrew people who had migrated in while the Jews were away. The work plans went through at a feverish pitch. Offerings were gathered and provided for the specialized workers who were getting things done. Zerubbabel, the deceased King Jehoiachin's grandson, had been appointed Governor of Judah, and was at the center of all this. 13 months after being home, the work on the foundation of the Temple started. It progressed uninterrupted until it was laid in place. The pageantry was full scale and the rejoicing was exuberant. The young had never known such a thing. The old, however, wept as they recalled Solomon's Temple from 900 B.C. Emotions were in overdrive! It was a beautiful day. 4 - The squatters in Judah, who were not Hebrews, wanted the Temple to not be built. First they infiltrated and feigned it to be teamwork hoping to "build" on the Temple together. Zerubbabel smelled their duplicity and refused to let them in on it. Then the hagglers discouraged the work. Then they wrote devious documents and worked out the translation and got the King of Persia to come stop the Temple construction. He did so by force. The work was stopped for 15 years! Shameful isn't it? Folks, holidays are coming and there will be exacting folks with the same contrarian attitudes who aren't thankful, who don't want to see Baby Jesus or "Merry Christmas" signs. Don't yield. You celebrate our Savior ! Never succumb to those who want a de-Christianized world. Because once they get it, they still despise God and you for loving Him. Live your faith. Everyone loses when you don't, especially you. 5 - The next Persian King, Darius I, came to power and he changed the decree back and the Temple project resumed after 15 years in silence and chagrin. Haggai and Zechariah were there to encourage the process. [We read Haggai last month and are reading Zechariah now in the "Exile Stream".] Then adversaries came from "beyond the river" (this is the Tigris/Euphrates, not the Jordan) and questioned Zerubbabel as to who gave clearance for the Jews to rebuild their Temple. A quest; a team goes back to Darius to find if their work was cleared by the former king. This is a set back again. However, they are being slightly more civil about it. Doesn't make the delay anymore enjoyable. 6 - Darius then does agree to confirm that Cyrus did indeed decree that the Hebrews were allowed to go back to Jerusalem and rebuild their Temple. Once they find Cyrus document and confirm that the Jews are in the right, and realize that those who are being agitational to the Jews while trying to appear hyper-vigilant, Darius makes his decision. He (likely bothered at the unnecessary setback) takes funds from the Persian treasury and put up the cash to pay for the rest of the Temple to be built. And orders anyone else who stops progress to be executed. Amazing how a set back turns out to be a very fortunate development for the Jews rebuilding their Temple! It's done in 1/2 dozen years and the dedication ceremony is wondrous. Soon thereafter the Passover is celebrated and there is joy in Jerusalem! It is 515 B.C. It's another one of those, y'wish you could be there seasons. [It's important to know that there is almost a 60 year interval between the end of chapter 6 and the start of chapter 7.] 7 - Ezra finally makes the trek to Jerusalem in 458 B.C. [Most of ch's 7 and 8 are prep for this event.] Artaxerxes I is king. He happens to be Queen Esther's stepson. He also is favorable to the Jews. He realizes there is blessing in blessing them and he does. Ezra is being sent back to teach the law of God, to bring beautiful items to adorn the Temple, and to oversee the services that are to take place in the Temple. The opening of Ezra 7 makes it abundantly clear who Ezra is, who he is related to, that fact that he is very adept in the Law, and that God was upon him. He's the man for this historical job. Artaxerxes is so taken with this whole development that he sees to it that Ezra is stocked to the hilt for this journey and assignment. Ezra returns to Jerusalem with items for service, for the Temple and wealth that required a squadron of men to haul it all, plus staff to provide for all else that is needed. 8 - The extensive list of those who went back to Jerusalem with Ezra is itemized. It's almost a subtle hint to all of us: learn the scriptures - really learn then - and you will simply have all that you need. Ezra makes particular effort that there are enough Levitical priests for the journey. He takes steps to make sure they are spiritually prepared for this epochal trip. The items for the Temple are given to each apportioned man to transport to the Temple with all reverence. They arrive from the 900 mile trek after roughly four months in transit. The items are delivered in the house of God. The process is declared to be unopposed on all fronts. Halelujah.

Scripture For Today: 2 Chronicles 6:20“May your eyes be open toward this temple day and night, this place of which you said you would put your Name there. May you hear the prayer your servant prays toward this place.”Don't Charge the Atmosphere with Unbelief pt 2Words. Words are one of THE most important things about prayer that you can learn about. Yesterday, we looked at Genesis 1:1 – 4 and how that sets the tone for EVERYTHING else in the Bible. It all revolves around WORDS. Mainly, the Words of God! And, since the Bible is the inspired Word of God – the each and every word, each and every dot over each and every “I” and every comma or period are also inspired. To believe otherwise is unbelief in the God's Word. I know I'm stepping all over spiritual toes out there right now. But I'm not just stepping on them – I'm going to start jumping up and down on them now… get ready! Praise God! Let's look again at Genesis 1:1 – 4: “In the beginning, GOD created the heaven and the earth…” “And the earth was without form, and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep…” “And the Spirit of God MOVED upon the face of the waters…” So, picture this with me… there is NOTHING. The earth HAD NO FORM. It was a void. Nothing. Darkness was there. Darkness is always referred to Satan. God is Light and in Him there is no darkness. That is how, yesterday, we determined that God had regulated Satan to this void. He was in nothing. NOTH-ING! Then, God shows up… NOTHING is happening. NOTHING. He's just there, in the Holy Spirit, observing that there is NOTHING physical going on. But, on the inside – God has the entire plan. He knows the end from the beginning. To bring it to fruition – God had to DO something. He had to bring what was INSIDE of Himself, into being. How did He do that? WORDS! He spoke WORDS. Words that were inside of Him that described exactly what He desired to happen. He did not mince His Words. He did not say, “Ok…let me see a sun…” Then a sun appeared. No that would not work. What if the sun appeared on the other side of the earth. It would still be nightfall on one side and daylight on the other. No – God did not mince His Words. He spoke EXACTLY what was supposed to happen. Look at verse 3 now… “And God SAID – “LET THERE BE LIGHT!” And there WAS – LIGHT” Verse 4: “And God SAW – physical seeing here – THE LIGHT. And it was GOOD.” Amen! Who, does the Bible refer to, as the LIGHT of the world? JESUS! Remember where we are at here…God speaking the Words that are INSIDE OF HIM. God only saying exactly what He wants to come to pass. I truly believe that right HERE, in Genesis 1, is when JESUS – who was with God and who WAS God – became the third part of the God Head. Think about that. We have “GOD” in verse one. We have the Spirit of God (or the Holy Spirit) in verse 2. Now, we have “THE LIGHT” that was brought into the WORLD and it came about through THE WORD which means it was inside of God all along. And when God SPOKE the Word that was in Him… LIGHT BE – He could have said, “JESUS – LIGHT OF THE WORLD – BE!” And then the Bible says, “AND LIGHT WAS.” JESUS WAS now part of God giving light to the world! And we KNOW this was not a sun or star because the Bible is very clear these were not created until day four. Amen! Folks, I'm just trying to get you to read DEEPER into the Bible instead of taking it at face value. We are out of time for today – but, once again, we will take this up again tomorrow. Let's Pray!

In this episode we host Joshua Myers, to talk about his recently published book Cedric Robinson: The Time of the Black Radical Tradition. Folks will recall that last year we had a conversation with Josh Myers about Cedric Robinson much of which centered around the content and concepts within Black Marxism. While there is a slight overlap between this conversation and that one, the two are quite distinct and mutually inform each other. So we invite folks to revisit that alongside this conversation, or to listen to both for the first time to get a more complete picture of Myers' extensive knowledge and analysis of Robinson's life and work. Beyond that of course we encourage folks to pick up this book as it really does a great job of grounding Robinson's intellectual work within the context of his life, organizing and relationships. In this conversation we talk more about young Cedric's developing anti-imperialist and anti-colonial consciousness. His disenchantment with the aims, strategies and tactics of the Civil Rights Movement. His critiques of leadership, and analysis of charisma, which set the ground for his first book The Terms of Order. And we discuss how Robinson's work has always aimed to assault the foundations of academic disciplines. We discuss the relationship between Robinson and CLR James, and the practices of study and development of undercommons spaces for colleagues and students. We also talk about the relationship between Cedric and Immanuel Wallerstein and Modern World Systems Theory. We talk briefly about the arguments Robinson takes up in An Anthropology of Marxism and Forgeries of Memory and Meaning and of course we can't resist a couple of questions on recent readings, mis-readings, and non-readings of Robinson's most well-known work Black Marxism. We are only six patrons away from returning to 1,000 patrons, so if you have been waiting for that moment to become a patron of Millennials Are Killing Capitalism, it's a great time to join up and help sustain the work that we do here, bringing you conversations like this.

Liberals Don't Want Logic: Play clip: https://rumble.com/vpbc7w-the-view-hosts-cut-off-unvaxxed-conservative-guest-for-sharing-covid-facts.html?mref=22lbp&mc=56yab Texas Dem Ryan Guillen switches to Republican Party over defunding the police, 'chaos' on the border https://www.foxnews.com/politics/texas-dem-switches-republican-defunding-police-border According to Fox News: “A Texas Democrat switched his affiliation to the Republican Party over the party's left-leaning embrace of defunding the police policies and "chaos" on the southern border. State Rep. Ryan Guillen announced in a Monday press conference that he would seek reelection to his south Texas seat as a Republican, saying the Democratic Party's far-left values are no longer in line with his own. Specifically, Guillen cited his now-former party's backing of defunding the police and the compounding crisis at the southern border under President Biden. "Friends, something is happening in South Texas, and many of us are waking up to the fact that the values of those in Washington, D.C., are not our values, not the values of most Texans," Guillen said. "The ideology of defunding the police, of destroying the oil and gas industry and the chaos at our border is disastrous for those of us who live here in South Texas," he continued. The former Democrat had won his seat by nearly 17 points in the 2020 election and has served in the Texas House for almost two decades.” YouTube Cuts Off the Best Real-Time, Legal Coverage of Rittenhouse Trial and Immediately Regrets It https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/victoria-taft/2021/11/15/youtube-cuts-off-the-best-real-time-legal-coverage-of-rittenhouse-trial-and-immediately-regrets-it-n1533042 “The Rekieta Law channel, which featured multiple lawyers doing real-time analysis of the trial Rittenhouse trial, often beat the number of people watching the PBS stream. The PBS stream is one of the more reliable ones available to YouTube users and was being used by several outlets.” Well guess what Youtube did to them? Ya you guest, Youtube cut off their live feed as “Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger began his closing statement”. As you know, we are still suspended from Youtube, I think, until November 22nd. Youtube is big tech, and big tech hates the truth. So any honest attempt at live streaming a fair assessment of the Rittenhouse trial, and that was competing with platforms like PBS, will get the cancel treatment. Rekieta's media team tweeted this out: Florida woman dies after unsuccessful suit to get ivermectin https://thehill.com/regulation/healthcare/581735-florida-woman-dies-after-unsuccessful-suit-to-get-ivermectin A teacher in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., who was hospitalized with COVID-19 died following her husband's unsuccessful attempts to force doctors to treat her with the anti-parasitic drug ivermectin, according to reports from ABC News. Tamara Drock, 47, spent 12 weeks at the Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center, as explained by her husband, Ryan Drock, per ABC News. According to The Palm Beach Post, she was not vaccinated against COVID-19. Ryan Drock sued the hospital in October over its refusal to administer ivermectin to his wife, ABC News reported. Misinformation about ivermectin's ability to treat coronavirus infections has circulated widely online in recent months. However, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has stated that "ivermectin has not been authorized or approved for use in preventing or treating COVID-19 in humans or animals." The agency also noted that "ivermectin is approved for human use to treat infections caused by some parasitic worms and head lice and skin conditions like rosacea." Ryan Drock's lawsuit was rejected by Palm Beach County Circuit Judge James Nutt in October, according to ABC News's reports, as Nutt said that permitting a judge's rule to override a doctor's recommendation could set a dangerous precedent. Nutt encouraged the Drock family to try to negotiate a deal on their own with the doctors at the hospital. A doctor at the hospital did eventually agree to administer ivermectin, though the family attorney said it was too low of a dose, per ABC. QR code now the only acceptable form of COVID-19 vaccine proof in Alberta According to Canada's government media, I mean Global News: “Alberta residents will now need more than a paper record from a COVID-19 vaccine clinic if they want to sit down at a restaurant, work out at a gym or enter indoor venues like arenas or movie theatres. Albertans hoping to enter any business that has implemented the COVID-19 restrictions exemption program — or Alberta's vaccine passport — will now need to have the QR code provided by the provincial government. As of Monday, proof of vaccine received at the time of vaccination or those saved from MyHealthRecords is longer be accepted. “Alberta's more secure and scannable QR code vaccine record makes it easier for Albertans to safely take part in daily activities,” Health Minister Jason Copping said.”” UK “set to require three vaccinations from those eligible for booster”: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/nov/15/no-10-plans-booster-jab-requirement-for-people-to-obtain-covid-pass According to the Guardian: “Ministers are set to require three vaccinations from those eligible for booster jabs in order to qualify as being fully vaccinated in areas where people must prove their status, such as travel or avoiding mandatory isolation. Downing Street sources said the intention was to end up in a place where three jabs, rather than two, was the requirement to obtain a Covid pass showing full vaccination – though currently only over-40s are eligible for the booster. If the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) continues to recommend boosters for all adults six months after their second jab, then the requirement could be in place in England by the early spring. News of the plan came as England's chief medical officer, Chris Whitty, also warned there was “major concern” about vaccination rates among pregnant women – saying 98% of severely ill pregnant women in hospital had not been vaccinated. Speaking at a press conference on Monday, Boris Johnson said the concept of what constitutes “full vaccination” will need to be adjusted – and said that getting a third jab would become part of that.” Read it and Weep: California Hits All-Time High Gas Prices, and Some SoCal Stations Charge More According to NBC LA: “California just hit a new all-time record high for the average price of a gallon of regular gasoline, and some local gas stations around SoCal are charging even more. At one gas station in the Mid Wilshire district, on Monday, a gallon of regular unleaded is $5.99, while a gallon of premium gas is $6.59. California's gas prices are higher, on average, than any other state: the national price for a gallon of regular unleaded gas is $3.41. According to AAA, the statewide average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gas is $4.68 in California as of Monday. Other regions around SoCal were slightly cheaper than the average California price, but not by much: -In the Long Beach/Los Angeles area, the average price for one gallon of regular gas is $4.67, -in Orange County, the average price for one gallon of regular gas is $4.63, -in San Bernardino County, the average price is $4.61, and -in Riverside County, the average price is $4.59.” Closing This is Gabriel Rench with Crosspolitic News.

I just wrapped up 17 shows in 27 days. I am still learning how to be a comedian, speaker, facilitator, and actor. On top of that, I have to book travel and get myself to and from the gigs. Today I am going to share with you a lesson learned from each of the events. During the run, my shows consisted of two of my speeches, my stand-up, personal appearances, and as audience warm-up. It requires a lot of versatility and resilience. Sometimes I think those qualities are more important than talent. Probably not, but they help! Nevertheless, this episode is chock full of comedy lessons learned during the 17 events performed. Thanks to our PATREON sponsor for this episode JOHN PETERS! COMEDY LESSONS LEARNED - SHOW NOTES Specifically, I'll talk about: What Barney Fife, Realtors, and a Mexican Restaurant have in common A unique soundproof booth for doing a zoom interview How an outreach event turned into a virtual solo show Why being overprepared comes in handy A lesson in generosity Standing your ground to protect your health and restfulness Working in new material How a former NFL player gave me a set-up for a new joke What to do when a health official coughs all over your microphone Being appreciative of your friends and family Remembering to loosen up and "add the flavor" Making a wish and top golf Rolling the dice on an Uber in Atlantic City The accent in Boston I wasn't expecting Establishing off-stage relationships with clients and CEO's How refreshing it is to work with other comics Knowing your crowd and when to slow down How gender jokes can still work and much more.
