Hardcover – May 4, 2021, by J. H. Gelernter https://www.amazon.com/Hold-Fast-J-H-Gelernter/dp/0393867048 It's 1803. The Napoleonic Wars are raging, Britain is on her heels, and His Majesty's Secret Service has just lost its best agent, Thomas Grey. Deeply depressed by his wife's untimely death, Grey resigns from the service and accepts an offer to join a lumber firm in Boston. But when a sea battle with a privateer forces the ship carrying him west to make port in neutral Portugal, Grey is approached with a counteroffer: become a wealthy man by selling out Britain's spy network to France. The French take Grey for a disgruntled ex–naval officer, blithely unaware that Grey had lost his wife to an unlucky shot from a French cannon. Now, after many years serving King and Country, Grey seizes the opportunity to fight a covert war of his own. He travels to Paris, and―playing the part of the invaluable turncoat the French believe him to be―proceeds to infiltrate the highest levels of Napoleon's government. If he can outwit his handlers, outmatch his French counterparts, and outrun Napoleon's secret police, Grey may just avenge his wife's death and turn the tide of war in England's favor. Bursting with action and intrigue, Hold Fast sends readers headlong into an unrelenting spy thriller
This week we explore the walk of life with former secret service agent and author of the book Talk Back Barbie: The Secret Service Edition Lauren Fernandez. On the surface Lauren does not fit the stereotypical profile of a secret service agent being a blonde debutante from Atlanta, GA. Lauren and I had a great conversation about her journey to the Secret Service, why a person should never judge a book by its cover, and how humor can be useful even in serious situations.

Darrell Castle raises the question of who has the right to decide what goes into the heads and arms of your children. Phrased differently, who owns your children? Transcription / Notes CRIMINALIZING DISSENT Hello this is Darrell Castle with today's Castle Report. Today is Friday the 8th day of October in the year 2021 and in this Report, I will be raising the question of who has the right to decide what goes into the heads and arms of your children, phrased differently, who owns your children? There has been conflict between parents and the government for perhaps a century but now that conflict seems to be reaching the breaking point. Parents are finally telling the government that they have been patient, but their patience is wearing thin, and the government responds with the only thing it has, force. The Castle Family finds itself in good health this weekend and for that I am grateful. Monday the 11th is my 73rd birthday so this is the last weekend of my 72nd year. Joan and I will celebrate the life that is a gift from God because he gave me Joan and she gave me the family daughter who finds herself in the wonderful and glorious golden city of Los Angeles California, this weekend, but I'm sure I will get a phone call on Monday. Yes, parents out there in the hinterlands of America have been getting a little uppity lately as they start to realize what is being done to their children and what has been done for decades. Angry parents have been appearing at Schoolboard meetings across America to protest, not just what is being taught, but arrogance of the way the boards have conducted themselves, and we are above the law, attitude of the school boards. The schoolboards, by way of the National Schoolboards Association (NSBA) wrote a letter on September 29th to the President of the United States urging the federal government to “deal with the growing number of threats of violence and acts of intimidation occurring across the nation. “The letter alleges that parents who sought to express their opposition to mask mandates, COVID-19 vaccination, and the teaching of critical race theory, have been “inciting chaos” during board meetings. The fact that the letter went to the president is an indication that the NSBA believes that the federal government controls education. The assumption is correct of course because even though the Constitution does not confer that authority the federal government through the Department of Education and the Department of Justice has control of it. Therefore, using simple logic parents have probably concluded that if the federal government is sick and perverted those same values will be imparted to their children. The letter denied that critical race theory is being taught in schools and called for a joint collaboration among federal law enforcement agencies, state and local law enforcement and with public school officials be undertaken to focus on these threats. The schoolboards are asking, without any evidence or examples of an actual threat, federal and state law enforcement to go after parents who show up at board meetings and object to critical race theory, mask mandates, forced vaccination policies, etc. It gets worse though as the letter apparently asked that federal law enforcement agencies such as the FBI, the Secret Service, and the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security “investigate, intercept, and prevent the current threats and acts of violence by whatever extraordinary measures necessary. ”The question of who owns your kids has been answered loud and clear by this letter. The schoolboards own your kids, and they want their kids. Furthermore, if you try to intervene between them and your kids, they demand the FBI and the Secret Service go after you. The Secret Service? What authority does the Secret Service have in such matters? Ah, wait a minute, I get it now. The Secret Service mission includes protection of high-profile government officials and I suppose that is what the schoolboard...

Lucy Chang Evans is a civil engineer who also worked as a U.S. Secret Service agent before going on career break to build a family. Ten years later, she found herself in the middle of a divorce with three young kids. She first relaunched by returning to her original career as a civil engineer. After nearly six years in that role, Lucy went on career break again last year to focus on the online MBA she was pursuing and to help her children navigate e-learning during the pandemic. Lucy describes the vulnerability she felt at the beginning of her relaunch and the steps she took to “put one foot in front of the other” to turn things around. She also discusses the valuable relationships she developed as a result of her unsuccessful bid to win a city council seat, her advice for people relaunching as a single parent, and why positivity is so important.

The Facebook “whistleblower” has now been fully exposed! In this episode, I address the real reason she's speaking out. I also address the latest Project Veritas video about the Pfizer vaccine.

Liberals are changing the names to disguise their CRT agenda. The Secret Service report on school safety. The hapless Treasury Secretary pushes to monitor your bank account.

What You Need to Know is We the People are solid and strong! America is strong too. What we are seeing in Washington, D.C., in the Capitol, and in Congress, is just rotten to the core. It's time to return the power to We the People. The way to do this is to — Drain the Swamp. Julie Kelly, author, and senior contributor at American Greatness, talks about one of her recent articles — The FBI's Incurable Rot: The bureau is an institution with no shame, no remorse, and no accountability. There's no fix for that.

The man who shot and nearly killed President Ronald Reagan in 1981 — also gravely wounding Reagan's press secretary James Brady, and downing Secret Service agent Timothy McCarthy, and Metro Police Officer Thomas Delahanty — has been declared safe for unsupervised release starting in summer 2022. In 1982, John Hinckley, Jr., was found 'not guilty by reason of insanity', and his lawyer says his treatment succeeded. He has recovered from his mental illness. Should a would-be presidential assassin ever walk free? Can such a mental illness actually be 'cured'?

In this episode, Trish is joined by Grover Norquist, the president and founder of Americans for Tax Reform, a tax-payer advocacy group. A government shutdown is looming... Who is to blame? Democrats or Republicans? Plus, the Biden Administration is telling the American public that the $3.5 trillion infrastructure bill is going to cost them "nothing." How is that possible? When will the government stop spending like it's Monopoly money? Norquist says there's only two ways to get the money they need – print it or tax more!
"There's always something formal about the point of gun." In honor of the newest Daniel Craig Bond film releasing next week, we've decided to cover the one and only Bond not to continue his mission! We'll discuss the potential reasons this one didn't succeed, which kind of spy film we each think is superior, and pine over what could have been in "Peregrine Carruthers: Secret Agent."
James Bond is a character that has come to define a certain kind of Britishness but what, if any, role does 007 play in the real world of intelligence? Professor Christopher Andrew, the official historian of MI5, joins the podcast today and in his opinion, James Bond has been a surprisingly valuable asset to British intelligence over the last five decades. Indeed, the Bond brand has helped our security services to punch above their weight across the globe. Christopher and Dan also discuss the origins of the UK's security services, their ever-evolving role since their inception and whether Bond bears any resemblance to actual spying.

Rant and Rave discuss COVID and the "fear based" model that is now well underway and having a lot of success! Also discussed is BLM protesting vaccine passports in NYC; Hillary Clinton being booed out of Northern Ireland; Al Sharpton kicked out of Del Rio Texas with his race baiting nonsense; crack smoking / whore banging Hunter Biden in the news for more bribes with Libya; Kamala "Toes Up" Harris ushered off the stage by Secret Service on live TV when The View hosts received COVID positive test results! Rant and Rave also cover the first release of video footage from 1/6/21, that clearly show that day was not what the MSM and Demoncrats want you to believe. Pelosi (who the Capitol Police report to) and the DOJ have gone to court to not allow the 10,000 hours of security footage that shows what really happened. Finally, Dems want to monitor and track EVERY single bank transaction you have! BIG BROTHER!

CBS Eye on the World with John Batchelor CBS Audio Network @Batchelorshow J. H. Gelernter #Unbound. The complete, twenty-minute interview. May 3, 2021. LXX GLXXG Hold Fast: A Novel. Hardcover – May 4, 2021, by J. H. Gelernter https://www.amazon.com/Hold-Fast-J-H-Gelernter/dp/0393867048 It's 1803. The Napoleonic Wars are raging, Britain is on her heels, and His Majesty's Secret Service has just lost its best agent, Thomas Grey. Deeply depressed by his wife's untimely death, Grey resigns from the service and accepts an offer to join a lumber firm in Boston. But when a sea battle with a privateer forces the ship carrying him west to make port in neutral Portugal, Grey is approached with a counteroffer: become a wealthy man by selling out Britain's spy network to France. The French take Grey for a disgruntled ex–naval officer, blithely unaware that Grey had lost his wife to an unlucky shot from a French cannon. Now, after many years serving King and Country, Grey seizes the opportunity to fight a covert war of his own. He travels to Paris, and―playing the part of the invaluable turncoat the French believe him to be―proceeds to infiltrate the highest levels of Napoleon's government. If he can outwit his handlers, outmatch his French counterparts, and outrun Napoleon's secret police, Grey may just avenge his wife's death and turn the tide of war in England's favor. Bursting with action and intrigue, Hold Fast sends readers headlong into an unrelenting spy thriller

What You Need to Know is we have seen the 2022 Democrat playbook, and it's very effective. What we can learn from the California Recall is: 1) Democrats took it seriously — they motivated their base and didn't shy from their health COVID decisions. 2) Republican Party of California was not organized and ready for this — and it echos a worry for 2022. 3) Larry Elder was really good and solidified his new influential status — but so did Gavin Newsom. 4) Republicans do not have health freedom strategies that beat people's fear. We have to figure out those solutions and messaging and fast.

Former Bloomberg News White House correspondent Dick Keil joins Tim to talk about his story of 9/11 that started at 6:30 a.m. when he went on a morning run with President Bush in Sarasota, Florida, where the president was scheduled to make an appearance at a local elementary school. Dick provides details and background on what the chain of events was with the president that morning, and what it was like to cover the President of the United States from Air Force One as history was unfolding. This episode is part of our special series, "9/11: A Generation Removed." https://traffic.libsyn.com/secure/shapingopinion/Running_with_the_President_at_20.mp3 On the morning of September 11, 2001, President George W. Bush woke up a little before 6 a.m. He was staying at the Colony Beach and Tennis Resort on Longboat Key, Florida, not far from Sarasota, where he was to make a visit at a local elementary school later that morning. At 6:30 a.m., he took his daily run. He ran about for and a half miles on the grounds of the Longboat Key Golf Club. It took him just over 32 minutes to complete the run. He was joined by several Secret Services agents, and by Bloomberg White House correspondent Richard Keil. It was a beautiful day in Florida and all the way up the East Coast. The president was scheduled to visit the Emma E. Booker Elementary School in Sarasota at 9 a.m. That was a 20-minute drive from the hotel to the school. The purpose of the trip was to promote education. This was part of the president's campaign to combat illiteracy rates in the country. The name of the campaign was, “Putting Reading First.” Shortly after 8:30 a.m., the presidential motorcade left the hotel for the school. Meanwhile, 1,200 miles away, at 8:46 a.m., American Airlines Flight 11 crashes into the North Tower of the World Trade Center. Quickly, Press Secretary Ari Fleischer gets word that a plane has crashed into one of the towers at the World Trade Center. Word starts to spread throughout the motorcade, but the president is not immediately notified. About two minutes after the plane has hit the building, at 8:48 a.m., the president arrives at the elementary school, where he is told what's happened by his Chief of Staff Andrew Card. As far as anyone knows at that point, the size of the plane and what had happened were unclear. For now, the president assumes it was a tragic accident. The president is escorted to a room in the school where there are 18 second-graders in two rows before him. They start to take turns reading a story from a children's book called, “The Pet Goat.” The traveling White House Press Corps lines the back of the room, capturing video of what is to be a routine photo op. At the same time, some in that group are already getting texts, pages and calls about what is unfolding in New York. At 9:03 a.m., a second aircraft, United Flight 175 has crashed into the South Tower of the World Trade Center. Before long, Andrew Card would do something that's almost never done in the midst of a presidential event. He walks to the head of the classroom, and leans down to communicate directly to the president. He whispers into the president's right ear, “A second plane has just hit the World Trade Center. America is under attack.” Immediately, he steps back so as not to engage in a discussion of the matter in front of the children and the news media. The president's demeanor immediately and visibly changes. Clearly, he is preoccupied. He avoids any abrupt actions or movements so as not to send the wrong message. He works to keep his cool until the appropriate time where he can gracefully excuse himself from the room. Not long after, he exits the classroom for a nearby holding room that the White House is using. It becomes a de facto war room where the president and his team can find out what's happening and to make the first decisions that have to be made in response to the terrorist attacks o...

Briggs, a retired California Highway Patrol sergeant, spent many years patrolling the Golden Gate Bridge. While on patrol, he encountered numerous individuals clinging to life by a thread – individuals who had lost hope and could see no way out of their current situation - ready to jump off the bridge to what they assumed was a sudden death and end of their pain and hopelessness. Briggs, through his compassion, gentle voice, eye contact, and his innate ability of “listening to understand” encouraged more than 200 individuals over his career to either not go over the bridge's rail or come back to solid ground from where they had been standing precariously out on the chord of the bridge and start a new chapter in their life. These challenging, but rewarding efforts earned him the nickname “Guardian of the Golden Gate Bridge.” After a 23-year career with the California Highway Patrol, Briggs retired to dedicate his life to promote mental health awareness across the globe through Pivotal Points, an organization he founded. Today, Briggs is mapping a movement as he speaks and trains others in suicide prevention, crisis management, and negotiations. He shares his “Listening to Understand” skills followed up with key active listening points; his personal triad for healthy living; his RELEASE model to assist in communicating with someone in crisis and his crisis safety plan for those who may be struggling. He also discusses in-depth his own personal mental health struggles. Briggs spends the majority of his time speaking/teaching at conferences, advocacy events, colleges and universities, first responder conferences, law enforcement (including FBI & Secret Service), and military bases.
