Tune in to learn the beginnings of prohibition, some of the important people involved, and the downfall of the 18th amendment.

Check out more about them in the description above! 11:25TW: Discussion of the Heaven's Gate mass suicide. Heaven's Gate apologists call in, and the hosts are thunderstruck. Vi is especially frustrated with their attempts to justify the mass un-aliving that took place in March of 1997. Apparently it wasn't that bad, because they're all up on a spaceship now. What, and we repeat, the actual fuck.To learn a little more about Heaven's Gate, check out this article: https://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/heavens-gate-cult-members-found-dead 42:52This caller wants to explain how Atlantis not only was real, but was a technologically advanced society responsible for the construction of the great stone structures around the globe. This means the pyramids, the Mayan temples, Stonehenge. Our caller says we can know this is true because Plato says so, but we have our doubts. 58:37Gohan calls back to debate the fine tuning argument from a scientific perspective. Eric especially nails the arguments here, finding common ground and pinpointing where the assumptions this theist brings to the table fall flat on their face.

Can one be an atheist and a pagan at the same time? Is it different from non-theistic paganism? Eric asks for more clarification, and Vi points out that while words don't have prescriptive meanings, we do hold the responsibility to use them wisely. ___________________Skeptic Generation is LIVE every Sunday at 11:30am-1:00pm CTCall on your phone: 585-LA-MURPH (585-526-8774) Call online: https://tiny.cc/callSG Love the show?

WATCH: U.S. 'out of the pandemic phase,' Fauci says Well folks you heard our COVID Over-Lord, we’re out of the pandemic. I’m sure that means the coast is 100% clear! Happy Thursday everyone, today’s News Brief is for Thursday, April 28th, 2022. Just so you guys know, you still have an opportunity to sign up for our last stop in the CrossPolitic Liberty Tour, as we’ll be in Phoenix Arizona, on May 19th, and we’ll be joined by Pastor Jeff Durbin of Apologia Church, and Political analyst Delano Squires, who has made appearances on the Blaze, and the Tucker Carlson show. For only $20, you could be in the audience, as we talk about the five stones, of true liberty! Something our country really needs to be thinking about, as I’m sure our government would love to snatch that away from us given the chance. https://fox2now.com/news/national/fauci-says-us-is-out-of-the-pandemic-stage/ Anyways, back to that Fauci guy. Fauci says US is ‘out of the pandemic phase’. The nation’s top immunologist said Tuesday that the country has finally moved past the pandemic stage after more than two years, pointing to the U.S. population’s current rates of infection, hospitalization and death from COVID-19. But what does that mean going forward? Well, Fauci warned, that vaccines, which in his words are — one of the most effective tools against infection and serious illness — are still essential for keeping the country from backsliding, but he couldn’t say how often Americas would need to be boostered. He threw out, that might be every year, that might be longer, in order to keep that level low… I’m reminded of a talk that a friend of our show, Steve Deace gave, at our Fight Laugh Feast Rally in South Dakota. In that talk, he mentioned how this was not a one-time event… this was a harvest. I’ll play some of this clip where he talks about his book, Faucian Bargain. https://flfnetwork.com/fight-laugh-feast-rally-in-sd-2021-archive/ -Play 8:38-10:30 It ain’t about a virus… you can watch the rest of Steve’s talk in our club portal by the way… so if you’re not a club member, sign up flfnetwork.com/membership.

Well what do you mean? Aren’t feminists champions of this day and age? Well according to RedState, Miss Buckley was scheduled to speak at the iconic institution about British Romanticism. But though her appearance was centered on poetry and philosophy, someone at the school discovered online information regarding her and transgenderism. Fast forward to her talk getting 86’d. As noted by The Post Millennial, Devin’s a board member for the Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF). Wolf in sheep’s clothing maybe? Per its website, the group boasts a gender-related mission: To abolish regressive gender roles and the epidemic of male violence using legal arguments, policy advocacy, and public education. In service to said abolition, WoLF has a plan: Their website reads, To Facilitate a cultural shift away from gender roles and sex-stereotypes. Defend sex-segregation of domestic violence shelters and prisons, which affects the most consistently vulnerable, impoverished, and abused women. Support the needs of lesbian and bisexual women. Speak out against targeted censorship and defend free speech for women. Well great, so far so good, this keeps up with the current zeitgeist. Now prepare for the problematic: Defend sex-segregation of women’s sports, bathrooms, and locker rooms. Support detransitioners in their struggle to be healed and heard. Uh oh…now you’ve really kicked the hornet’s nest… On April 18th, Devin reportedly received an email from an English department employee: I have some bad news. As we were preparing the application for next year’s funding, my co-coordinator looked you up on Google to include the correct details about you on the application. Controversy was uncovered: She was surprised to find that your public profile is largely rooted in controversial issues regarding trans identity and that you’re on the board of an organization that takes a public stance regarding trans people as dangerous and deceptive. Since you’re mostly engaging in the public sphere as more of a polemicist than Romanticist, this puts the…department and myself in an uneasy position. By the way, according to Merriam Webster, polemicist is defined as:an aggressive attack on or refutation of the opinions or principles of another. The email continued: Really, it’s not so much because of your own personal conviction regarding trans identity. It’s more about the public stance you’ve taken and how you’ve recently crafted a professional presence around these issues. I’m so sorry we can’t extend the formal invitation I promised you. You get the idea… Well Devin’s none too impressed. She replied: “This is a case of Harvard deplatforming me for political reasons entirely unrelated to my scholarship, if it is unacceptable for me to speak at Harvard on British poetry and philosophy because I am a feminist, then I invite Harvard to purge its libraries and museums of all those who hold views unacceptable to Harvard. If I am to be silenced, then why do the tomes and treatises of history’s innumerable sexist, racist, homophobes still sit on Harvard’s hallowed shelves and continue to be cited with reverence? Harvard should cleanse them all and leave nothing but the purity of empty space. Very interesting… it appears that we’re getting to a place where all the toxic ideologies out there are going to start gobbling up one another, and I for one, can’t wait to watch it. And hey, as the bullets get ready to fly, you better get some protection! Well I’ve got just the company for you… The Mission of Armored Republic is to Honor Christ by equipping Free Men with Tools of Liberty necessary to preserve God-given rights. In the Armored Republic there is no King but Christ. We are Free Craftsmen. Body Armor is a Tool of Liberty. We create Tools of Liberty. Free men must remain ever vigilant against tyranny wherever it appears. God has given us the tools of liberty needed to defend the rights He bestowed to us. Armored Republic is honored to offer you those Tools. Visit them, at ar500armor.com How’d you like that segway? Anyways, now it’s time to talk about the topic I love. SPORTS! Novak Djokovic allowed to defend Wimbledon title as vaccine isn’t required https://nypost.com/2022/04/26/novak-djokovic-can-play-in-wimbledon-as-vaccine-isnt-required/ According to the New York Post, Novak Djokovic will be allowed to defend his title at Wimbledon, despite not being vaccinated against COVID-19, because the shots are not required to enter Britain, All England Club chief executive Sally Bolton said Tuesday. Djokovic, a 34-year-old Serb who is ranked No. 1, missed the Australian Open in January after being deported from that country because he was not vaccinated against the illness. During the annual spring briefing ahead of Wimbledon, which starts on June 27, Bolton said that “whilst, of course, it is encouraged” that all players get vaccinated, “it will not be a condition of entry to compete” at the grass-court Grand Slam tournament this year. Djokovic, in addition to being unable to defend his championship at Melbourne Park after an 11-day legal saga over whether he could remain in Australia, had to sit out tournaments at Indian Wells and Miami because he couldn’t travel to the United States as a foreigner who is unvaccinated. I grew to respect athletes like Novak Djokovic, Aaron Rodgers, Kyrie Irving, and Jonathan Isaac, a whole lot more after their refusal to bend the knee to our COVID overlords… In Novak’s case, he made the right call, as I mentioned in my news brief last week, where numerous competitors collapsed in the Miami Open Tournament. The U.S. Tennis Association has said that it will follow whatever governmental rules are in place regarding COVID-19 vaccination status when the U.S. Open is held starting in late August. Djokovic — who has said he got COVID-19 twice, once each in 2020 and 2021 — owns 20 Grand Slam singles titles, tied with Roger Federer for the second-most for a man. They trail Rafael Nadal, who won his 21st at the Australian Open. Six of Djokovic’s trophies came at Wimbledon, including victories each of the past three times the tournament was held — in 2018, 2019 and 2021. It was not held in 2020 because of the pandemic. After what happened in Australia, Djokovic said he would be willing to sit out other Grand Slam tournaments if getting vaccinated were a requirement to compete. The next major event is the French Open, which begins on May 22, and the tournament director said last month there was nothing preventing Djokovic from defending his 2021 title in Paris. Good on you Novak, good on you. Lastly, how about a little on this day in history? https://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/muhammad-ali-refuses-army-induction#:~:text=On%20April%2028%2C%201967%2C%20with,from%20boxing%20for%20three%20years. On April 28, 1967, with the United States at war in Vietnam, Ali refused to be inducted into the armed forces, saying “I ain’t got no quarrel with those Vietcong.” On June 20, 1967, Ali was convicted of draft evasion, sentenced to five years in prison, fined $10,000 and banned from boxing for three years. He stayed out of prison as his case was appealed and returned to the ring on October 26, 1970, knocking out Jerry Quarry in Atlanta in the third round. On March 8, 1971, Ali fought Joe Frazier in the “Fight of the Century” and lost after 15 rounds, the first loss of his professional boxing career. On June 28 of that same year, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned his conviction for evading the draft. At a January 24, 1974, rematch at New York City’s Madison Square Garden, Ali defeated Frazier by decision in 12 rounds. On October 30 of that same year, an underdog Ali bested George Foreman and reclaimed his heavyweight champion belt. Thanks for tuning into this CrossPolitic Daily News Brief.

On this episode of the world famous Sofa King Podcast, we try our hand at the Guinness Book of World Records. This childhood favorite started back in 1955 when there was no such thing as the internet, and encyclopedias only covered serious topics. It was launched by Sir Hugh Beaver who worked at Guinness, and he hired the McWhorter brothers to write it. One of them was assassinated by the IRA, but the show must go on. The Guinness Book of World Records became a sensation (and became a world record holder itself for most books sold). Their museums opened worldwide, the book was translated into languages all around the world, and television shows spawned everywhere. How did they change their business model to stay in business? What does it take to become a Guinness record holder? Who holds the most records?

Hi all, this is Garrison Hardie with your CrossPolitic Daily News Brief for Monday, April 18th, 2022. I hope you all had a wonderful Easter with you and yours’ so let’s see what happened with the news while we were away. First, in his last news brief on Friday, Pastor Toby Sumpter went over a new abortion ban bill that has been signed in Oklahoma. Well later that same day, Florida Governor Ron Desantis got in on the action as well, by signing House Bill 5, which bans abortions after the 15-week mark. https://www.npr.org/2022/04/14/1084485963/florida-abortion-law-15-weeks Governor DeSantis released a statement saying: “House Bill 5 protects babies in the womb who have beating hearts, who can move, who can taste, who can see, and who can feel pain. Life is a sacred gift worthy of our protection, and I am proud to sign this great piece of legislation which represents the most significant protections for life in the state's modern history." The new Florida law, which takes effect July 1, will replace a previous one that allowed abortions until 24 weeks of pregnancy. The new 15-week ban does not make exceptions for cases of incest, rape or human trafficking. It does allow an abortion if it would save the life of a pregnant person or prevent serious injury to them. Yeah, believe it or not, it’s not okay to murder a baby just because the child was created through terrible circumstances. Now of course, murderous dictator, or rather, Planned Parenthood President Alexis McGill Johnson, had to release her own statement, saying: "We've entered a dangerous time for Floridians' reproductive freedom. In just a few months, thousands of pregnant people in Florida will no longer be able to access the care they need without leaving their state. The supporters of this bill have put their own political ambitions and beliefs before the health and futures of their constituents." I think the term or phrase you’re looking for Alexis, is “the supporters of this bill want to save babies from being slaughtered.” Now, it should be noted that this bill definitely doesn’t go far enough. Until all abortions are made illegal in this country, at ANY period, not just the 15-week mark, but, the winds seem to be shifting in a favorable direction, across the country. Our nation needs to fall on it’s knees in repentance to our creator, but our nation’s pride refuses to buckle. It’s comical really, as we’ve all seen how prideful nations’ end up in the Bible… Speaking of which, Not so long ago, the American dream was alive and well. Employees who worked hard were rewarded, and employers looked for people who could do the job, not for people who had the right political views. RedBalloon.work (www.redballoon.work/flf/) is a job site designed to get us back to what made American businesses successful: free speech, hard work, and having fun. If you are a free speech employer who wants to hire employees who focus on their work and not identity politics, then post a job on RedBalloon. If you are an employee who is being censored at work or is being forced to comply with the current zeitgeist, post your resume on RedBalloon and look for a new job. www.redballoon.work/flf/, the job site where free speech is still alive! www.redballoon.work/flf/ Musk says Twitter board will be paid nothing if he acquires the company https://www.cnbc.com/2022/04/18/musk-twitter-board-will-be-paid-nothing-if-he-acquires-the-company.html Elon Musk said Monday that Twitter’s board of directors won’t be compensated for serving if he acquires the company. “Board salary will be $0 if my bid succeeds, so that’s ~$3M/year saved right there,” Musk said in a tweet. https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/1516056299376623626?s=20&t=z3XQXE3sYv2qJjpRDIRjAA -Show Tweet It’s not clear who would be appointed to serve the board of a Musk-owned Twitter. Currently, Twitter spends about $2.9 million in cash and stock awards to board members, according to a filing with the SEC. Executives do not receive additional compensation for their seats, so that does not include payments for CEO Parag Agrawal and former chief Jack Dorsey. As Toby reported on Friday, Elon Musk made a $43 billion bid for Twitter. In response, Twitter adopted a limited duration shareholder rights plan, often referred to as a “poison pill,” in an effort to fend off a potential hostile takeover. This “poison pill'' is basically a limited duration shareholder rights plan that would allow shareholders to buy stock at a discount if any one person or entity amasses at least 15% of outstanding common stock without the board’s prior approval. Musk recently revealed a more than 9% stake in the company before his takeover bid. Musk may also be considering a potential tender offer to Twitter shareholders to take control of the company. Musk has argued Twitter needs to be “transformed” into a private company so it can become a forum for free speech. He also said that Twitter’s board members’ interests “are simply not aligned with shareholders” and that the board “owns almost no shares” of the company. Even former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has gotten in on the action, as he criticized the company’s board in a series of tweets on Sunday. Responding to another Twitter user describing the “plots and coups” that played out early on in the history of Twitter’s board, Dorsey replied, “it’s consistently been the dysfunction of the company.” https://twitter.com/jack/status/1515549577352564740 -Show Tweet Earlier, he responded to another tweet in the same thread. It quoted venture capitalist Fred Destin citing what he called a “Silicon Valley proverb”: “Good boards don’t create good companies, but a bad board will kill a company every time.” Dorsey responded, “big facts.” Dorsey still sits on Twitter’s board but plans to leave once his term expires at the 2022 meeting of shareholders, which is scheduled for late May. Cori Bush surpasses $300K spent on private security as she continues calls to defund the police https://www.foxnews.com/politics/cori-bush-surpasses-300k-spent-private-security-she-continues-calls-defund-police Bush’s campaign has dropped another $70 thousand on private security in 2022 alone… and it’s only April by the way… Bush's newest security checks follow the $233,663 her committee spent on the services in 2021, FEC records show. She has now paid out $304,152 for security this election cycle. Here’s a brief clip of her talking saying the part that she shouldn’t say outloud: https://twitter.com/i/status/1423257378993147907 -Play Video Now, if what she said is true, and there have been attempts made on her life, then that’s terrible… but who is she going to call exactly if another attempt were to occur? Untrained social workers who definitely don’t have the capabilities to deal with a dangerous individual? No, she wants the police gone for us plebeians, but she can rely on her $300 thousand security team. So this begs the question… do our African American brothers and sisters really want the police defunded? Well according to a 2020 Gallup poll, in the height of Black Lives Matter, which by the way, we don’t hear that phrase much anymore, because the mob has shifted focus on sexually grooming our kids, but anyways, the poll said When asked whether they want the police to spend more time, the same amount of time or less time than they currently do in their area, most Black Americans -- 61% -- want the police presence to remain the same. This is similar to the 67% of all U.S. adults preferring the status quo, including 71% of White Americans. Meanwhile, nearly equal proportions of Black Americans say they would like the police to spend more time in their area (20%) as say they'd like them to spend less time there (19%). https://news.gallup.com/poll/316571/black-americans-police-retain-local-presence.aspx - Screen Capture first graph You see, Cori Bush really isn’t listening to those in her communities. Because believe it or not, more of a police presence, typically means, less criminals roaming the streets… who’d have thought?

Back to race relations… Public Library Hosts a Dance Class for the Elderly — No Whites Allowed https://redstate.com/alexparker/2022/04/17/public-library-hosts-a-dance-class-for-the-elderly-no-whites-allowed-n551605 Doesn’t that just warm your heart? These days — not wholly dissimilar to seventy years ago — segregation is all the rage. And at Wisconsin’s Madison Public Library, they’re keeping things contemporary. Therefore, the library’s offering an elderly Movement & Meditation class with a ban on white people. Per an online announcement, sessions will be held in May at both Goodman South Madison Library and Meadowridge Library. Here’s what the nonwhites will enjoy: Movement & Meditation is a movement class where elements of mindfulness and movement intersect for one hour! … Adaptable movements will be shared for all abilities. … Notebooks and writing materials will be provided. This is an invitation to get to know your community while learning more about dance, movement and mindfulness. The library evidently takes the increasingly popular position that “community” regards those who share a shade of skin. And as for getting to know one’s “community,” that might include transgender individuals: All identities, skill levels, and capabilities are encouraged and welcomed. But if you identify as white, it’s a no-go: This program is intended for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) seniors 55+. Space is limited, so register to reserve your spot… For those of you who don’t know what BIPOC means, you’re a bigot and you’re triggering me, where’s Kyle from the Bee when you need him? The Caucasian-free foray is “presented by KLJ Movement.” The end of each class “will include time for reflection and connection.” Might anyone reflect on the idea that segregation is antithetical to much-needed national unity? It’s doubtfully on the docket. But at least they’ll be connecting — with the past: https://twitter.com/realchrisrufo/status/1319673465809453058?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1319673465809453058%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fredstate.com%2Falexparker%2F2022%2F04%2F17%2Fpublic-library-hosts-a-dance-class-for-the-elderly-no-whites-allowed-n551605 -Neil, can you show these in a side-by-side? Moving on, it’s time for this day in history. By the way, my mom called me out for not mentioning her birthday last Monday while doing on this day in history, so happy belated birthday mom! Love you! What a great son I am… anyways, On to a big day in our nation’s history, April 18th, American Revolution: George Washington issues General Order announcing the end of hostilities with Britain, giving thanks to the Almighty, and offering congratulations and authorizing an extra ration of alcohol to the troops to celebrate. I have a feeling Washington would have an aneurysm seeing the state of our nation. Earlier in that same week, on April 11th, 1783, Hostilities formally cease in the American Revolutionary War, and on the 15th, the Continental Congress ratified preliminary articles of peace, ending the seven-year-long war with Great Britain.

On this episode of the world famous Sofa King Podcast, we bring you the best radio broadcast ever—The War of the Worlds. On October 30th, 1938, the legendary Orson Welles created a radio show for CBS based on the novel, The War of the Worlds. The show was unique, using cutting-edge sound design and special audio effects more than any other broadcast. Coupled with good acting, and a lack of commercial interruptions (like a real news broadcast), it freaked out the nation. Some accounts say that people panicked, stormed government buildings, and loaded up their shotguns ready for a Martian invasion. Others state that it wasn't that bad, but the newspaper industry blew it out of proportion. So, what happened that night? Why did Welles and his cast get locked in a room in the studio for hours after? Why did cops storm the studio? What did Welles say about it the next day, and what was Hitler's reaction?
