That's Chosen Generation Radio, where no topic is off limits and everything filtered through biblical glasses. Hi, I'm Tim Scheff, a certified natural health practitioner of over 40 years. I went under issue to a product that changed my life. The product's called Vibe, available at I thought I was on a good nutritional program before I discovered Vibe.

I was taking the traditional vitamin and mineral tablets, wasn't really feeling any different. So I tried Vibe. Vibe is an all-in-one vitamin and mineral supplement. It's a liquid multivitamin. It's cold pressed, whole food sourced, non-radiated, gluten-free, and has no pasteurization.

That's Chosen Generation Radio, where no topic is off limits and everything filtered through biblical glasses. My passion is the fight for freedom. My father fought for a World War II defending our country. Today, we are no longer fighting with guns. Instead, we are fighting an ideological battle for control of our country by contributing to causes that support your constitutional rights.

I am Patriot Mobile. Sexual predators and comprehensive sex education both break down inhibitions. That's what they start with. They also gain trust with the child and then slowly start to get them towards sexual activity.

Anything goes. You are teaching children adult child sex. You're teaching transgender issues. And children are moldable and influenced by that. They said, okay, now we need you and your team to be able to explain what homosexuality is to a four-year-old student. To introduce this kind of material at that age, frankly, it's child abuse. You're going to teach our children that it's okay for any two children of any age of any sex to have sexual intercourse with each other as long as two components are present. One's using a condom, and they both give consent.

Did I hear that correctly? It's not a neutral venue. There's no such thing. The schools are doing your job. They are discipling your children, but they're not discipling them in the faith of Jesus Christ. It's only the exceptional child that even survives that system. Most do not survive.

Most have not survived. They believe that children are sexual from birth and that they deserve and have the right to be sexually active and to seek sexual pleasure. And if anyone is stopping them from that, then you are judging and oppressing them. Even kindergarten now, they're wanting to teach them more and more perverse information and acts and put that into the children's minds. And once that poison is in the child's mind, it doesn't leave. They'll always remember what they learned. And it's by design, it's orchestrated.

In my humble opinion, it will be worse before it gets better. Hi, I'm Tim Sheff, a certified natural health practitioner of over 40 years. I went under use to a product that changed my life. The product is called Vibe, available at I thought I was on a good nutritional program before I discovered Vibe. I was taking the traditional vitamin and mineral tablets.

I wasn't really feeling any different. So I tried Vibe. Vibe is an all-in-one vitamin and mineral supplement. It's a liquid multivitamin. It's cold-pressed, whole-food-sourced, non-radiate, gluten-free, and has no pasteurization. Vibe is like fresh juicing without all the work.

It supports four areas of the body, cardiovascular health, immune health, anti-aging, and healthy cell replication. Vibe is available in a 32-ounce bottle for home use or a very handy one-ounce travel packet for life on the go. The first time I tried Vibe, I had more energy in about 20 minutes. I started thinking clear.

Welcome to Chosen Generation with your host, Pastor Greg Young. But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people that you should shoe forth the praises of him who has called you out of darkness into his marvelous light which in time past were not a people but are now the people of God which had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy. And now, Chosen Generation, where no topic is off limits and everything is filtered through biblical glasses. And now, here's your host, Pastor Greg.

Hey, welcome back to Chosen Generation Radio, where no topic is off limits and everything is filtered through biblical glasses. Thanks so much for being here. I know you have a choice of where you can listen each and every day, and I thank you for keeping it tuned here. Hour number two, and I'm very pleased to welcome to the program, he is the founder and the president of AMWPR, one of the premier boutique public relations firms out of New York.

And he's also a media owner of a variety of other interests as well. I want to welcome Adam Weiss to the program. Adam, welcome. Good to have you.

Thanks for having me, Pastor. Well, you're bunkered down there in New York, and I used to have a subrogation business and did a lot of work. As a matter of fact, American Express, when they were in the towers, was one of my clients at one time. So I've actually had been to the tower, and then we did a lot of work with Avis back in the day out on Long Island.

What part of Long Island? Let's see. Well, near the Garden City Hotel.

Let me think. It's been, my goodness, 20-something years. Beautiful hotels, the Garden City Hotel over there, too. Yeah. I'm sure you would have. Yeah, yeah. They actually had a corporate account over there, so that's where I used to stay. They gave me a special corporate rate. We spent a Christmas there one year back in the late 90s. Wow.

Yeah. Back when New York was a very American place, it's such a shame what the left has done. It goes back and forth. New York, you can't hold it back, but their policies are so bad that it's like it goes two steps up because you can't take away the energy of New York. You land here, there's concrete buildings everywhere.

There's so much action, but then you got leaders that do the most asinine policies, so it's like two steps up, three steps back. Quick example, they just banned Airbnb, right? All of New York about a month and a half ago. Why can't someone, a family of three or four or two, come for a few days and rent someone's apartment if they want to in a brownstone or apartment?

No. No Airbnb allowed anymore, right? So overnight you wiped out 40,000 apartments.

They used to give someone who owned a small building had an apartment and they built a little extra income. They needed a bed. So on top of that, now you have, I think there's like a thousand or something, some hundreds of hotels that are fully leased for migrants.

So you go on a website right now, any website, hotel planner and hotels are about anywhere from 500 and up a night. Now you want, now New York is the biggest tourist city in the country. We want to welcome people to come here and yet hotels are 500 and up a night.

Like great. It's like giving the big middle finger to most of America saying don't, we want you here, but you better spend all your savings for a few days of visits. So this is such dumb policies. They bought and paid for the union, so they wiped out Airbnb. Airbnb is such a good little website that was created just to let people to visit that don't want to stay in a hotel, want the accommodation of staying in a nice apartment. What is the big deal, right? Right. Well, the impact of that too on Airbnb as a whole is going to have to be quite significant just across the board because that's a big chunk of their income, right?

Big chunk of their income. But, you know, most of the people, most from the renters point of view, I'm for the rent and the land or both of them. I mean, everybody gets hurt.

Everybody gets hurt. Airbnb anymore only if it's 30 days or more, but that absolutely makes no sense because Airbnb is basically for a quick short vacation. Right. So does that make any sense? So this is the little policies they come up with because that wasn't that one because they're in the pockets of the hotel union.

So they said, you know, it was so that's just one I can give you example of example. Well, but New York, her economic activity to hurt so simple things, you know, Well, New York is is a battleground in large part, I would think because of its media influence in as a whole. I mean, so much of the news so much of the sway of public opinion is controlled by major media as as much as we're trying to bring more truth more light as much as President Trump spent time calling out the fake news. And there's a lot of people that have abandoned that. But there's still a large percentage of Americans that get their news from these mainstream media outlets. And that battle is is happens in New York. Am I Am I correct in that?

You're correct. Because you know, if you took you and I sat and we gave a class on the litany of cultural issues, economic issues, and do you want kids being taught about, you know, trans this trans that and you can, at 10 years old, you can decide if you want to boy or most Americans, whether you're a democrat or whatever, would say, most of these policies are asinine and saying, you know, but yet the cultural leads that run the media, they push this agenda, right? So they persuade elections probably have a good swathe of 10%. I'd say when I've always an analyst, though, analyze this over the years, I'd say 10% of the vote gets pushed to democratic side year after year after year from the media bias.

So that's kind of what we have. Trump is brilliant at fighting back. Usually we've had for decades and decades, Republican politicians trying to get along with him. And there's no getting along with him because, you know, instinctively all their all the issues they're against, you know, conservative issues, conservative ideology, they're so far to the left.

And what happens when they're so far to the left, they push the culture, and they push the public. So that's a lot of it. Like you said, they're most of them are here, right? All the big morning shows are here. All the big nighttime shows he and they still even though we've grown tremendously, and it's really helped, you know, parts of America and, and the public, we're able to watch so many different things, your show, other shows, podcasts, online shows to so many different areas, like you said earlier, America's Voice Bannon show, and all day long that I was just on one of their shows a half hour ago. Yeah, so it's really grown but still, when you have 6 million people watching Good Morning America, the Today Show, the evening news that really and and those people, they consistently watch those those networks, and they don't they don't switch and get their news from us and other outlets. So to persuade them, it's a struggle because they're filtered through the lens of the media. How much do you think that this media has impacted the general? Because, you know, there's one of the polls that came out indicated that that I think something like only 32% of Americans were supporting Israel's fight and what's happening over there. How much effect do you think media is having on that?

I think they have a huge effect. I mean, it's just such a gruesome, barbaric acts that are worse than everything I've ever seen in my life, and most people have ever seen in their lives, to make the media even come in somewhat fair for the first week and a half, two weeks. And then even that, even after that is still not showing, they're not going to showcase the barbaric acts, they're not going to keep playing that women, little babies with heads were cut off. You know, they have more fury over like George Floyd than that is more hysteria over George Floyd in our country.

And we went through hell for months and months because one guy was on fentanyl and then he passed away when the cops trying to arrest him. And then we have, you know, overseas so somewhat, you know, I hate to make that analogy, but it's Well, no, it's it's no, no, no, I don't have a problem with that at all. I had Mariam Hynum on the program and and and she's kind of fit to be tied, because she came out with a documentary about that whole situation about a year and a half ago. And now all of a sudden, you know, and gave that information to some media people that could have run with it, that she thought would and and Fox people she gave it to, and they and they wouldn't play it, they would not play the truth about George Floyd.

And now that Tucker has been tossed off of Fox, you know, he comes out with this on Twitter. And again, it's all well and good. But I had her on my program, probably at least a year ago.

And we did a full thing and I played video clips to show and she describes the video clips in her appearance on my program. I mean, we we kind of blew that whole thing up. I tried to help her to blow that up with their documentary coming out.

And nobody wanted to cover that situation, Adam. And and like you say, media has their narratives that they want to run with. And that's a great example.

Look what they did to our country. They don't get as injustice. Couple cops sitting in jail for I think they've got life sentences, right? Yeah. It's ridiculous.

And it's like unjust. And as a truck through the just through the criminal justice system, and hopefully somebody picks this up with this new information coming out because the corner of the car and it did come out recently. Right. And said he did not die. Police leg feet. It was drug induced death that happened.

So what else proof do you need? They were just doing the job. Right. Yep.

Yeah. Rush judgment was incredible to change. It was almost a change. It was almost like they had to make if we had to create a movie in real time, right? To change the country overnight.

And what was the end result? Let's cause chaos. Let's cause violence in the streets. And it's and even to this day in the cities, the theft that's happening that you know, you walk into a CVS in New York City, Manhattan, or a Target or one of these stores, a 70% of you have to call someone you have to wait to them to open up the you know, the shelves to get your to get the product because they locked them all up from all the line you've encouraged the criminal behavior as well.

You've encouraged criminal behavior. You've you've created more racial divide, you know, which which really started with Obama, but you've created you know, this this huge racial divide with this whole Palestinian thing. You had you had new Black Lives Matter leaders coming out and saying that, you know, black America needed to rise up with the Palestinians and and basically kill the establishment and kill anybody that's white.

I mean, there was a guy on Twitter that put that out. It's crazy. Yeah, like you said, something interesting. And I thought of this, I actually thought of this yesterday before my name when I was young in the late 80s or the 80s. And my neighbor was African-American black, but it was my neighbor.

Right. Yvonne was the name. A sister was Michelle. I believe parents. They were just my neighbors.

They have to be black, but they were my neighbors. Right. Got along great somewhere along the line during. And there was no hostility for the decades and decades until Obama came. And he set back race relations. You said Obama and I wholeheartedly agree with you. It was him that set back race relations like 50 years, like we were living in the 50s and the media played along with it again.

And we would get lectures after lectures after lectures and then Trump. And then it just became worse and worse. So it's like, I don't know what the next step is to heal it, but because of the hysteria they caused, they made race relations so much worse in this country.

Well, I think the thing to heal it is God. And we've got to get back to him because he created Adam and Eve. He didn't create us to be divided. He created us to be united.

He sent one, as a Christian pastor, I believe that he sent his son Yeshua to unite us and to save the entire world, red, brown, yellow, black, and white. And it's through that unity. I mean, I'm here on TECN TV, I love my brother Ken, you know, but the messaging is that, you know, we were supposed to hate one another, and we don't. And it's because of God in our lives. And that's why they're trying to basically eliminate God from the equation. And I think that's why they're going after Israel. And that's why they go after America.

And they're using, you know, the lies of Islam to do it. What they've done with Israel is decade after decade after decade, always taking the aside what they think is the oppressor. And Israel is this major, powerful country that the United and it's not that major country happened to be given a lot of weapons, because you said, you know, think about if you live in a house, are you surrounded by 10, 10 or so enemies, right?

You'd have to have a weapon to protect yourself, even if your house is a little city, and everybody to your left and right, your backyard, your right yard to your left to your front is your enemy. That's what Israel is with basically. You got Hamas to your left, I mean, I got Hamas, you got the West Bank, you got the Gaza, you got Hezbollah in Syria, you got everywhere they look, they have enemies. So it's a difficult situation, being the only democracy in the in the, you know, in the in the Middle East.

And not only that, yes, now it's what they've inflamed the media for decades and decades. You see it now what I mean, you see it, you see it on the college campuses, you see it in the cities, you see the hatreds in the streets, because they've been told year after year, Israel is the bad guy. Israel is the big Satan, Israel is oppressing the Palestinians. Meanwhile, Israel had nothing to do with Gaza, they gave it away 20, almost 20 years ago, run it yourself, it's all yours. Not only it's all yours, we're gonna let your hundreds of 1000 people come in from the West Bank guys every day and work.

We're gonna be work passes, you come in your work, go back home at night. We want peace. They don't want peace. No, no. Well, and and and a lot of people don't realize I mean, you know, you're talking about 40 miles by 150 miles. That's it.

That's it. That is that is the strip that is Israel. And and, you know, and these people want to cut that literally in half. But the reality is as as as we've read off here on the program, there was no their Palestine date, Dr. Wormser describes the word Palestine came basically was was a word for Israel, but there's no such thing as Palestinians. There never has been any such thing as Palestinians. Palestinians were created by the Soviet Union in the 1960s. They put Yasser Arafat in they trained him, they trained his terrorists, they trained the PLO, and then they sent them over there to destroy Israel.

That's what they were there for. And most of them came from the surrounding Muslim countries, and they just created Palestinians out of the air and said, oh, let's create a country, just a harbor on top of Israel. And, you know, they've tried, they've tried to they tried to make peace. You know, they gave even Clinton, they gave me Clinton get trying to give Arafat everything you wanted.

He wanted that deal so bad. And Arafat walked away and said, Nope, you because he knew the radical element in his country would never accept him. And he'd probably get assassinated if he accepted that deal. Yeah, well, and I think he did get assassinated, ultimately, right? Did he or just passed?

No, I think he just passed. Who was the one who was the one that got assassinated? The Israelis present week. No, no, no, it was it was an it was an Egyptian pair that Mubarak. No, not Mubarak. Was the one who had the peace deal with the Israelis under Carter. That's a Yeah, I think that's the one that got the that was killed. The peace deal with the first it was the first peace deal.

The Egyptians were the first ones that make peace with Israel. I'll have to look it up. I can't remember right now.

Adam, I apologize. But yeah, you know, Pastor, we had such a last week again with this media conglomerates. Yeah. You know, within if you it was a hospital, we all looked down on our phones in real time. We're getting we're getting news sources on Instagram, Twitter. And all of a sudden you type in the hospital bombing and New York Times screaming across their headlights. Israel bombs a hospital in Gaza. And you know that you know where they were getting information from the Palestinian Ministry of Health, which is basically the Hamas, the Hamas, because Hamas controls, right? They have the major portion of parliament over there.

So they are the Ministry of Health. So they they run with it. AP runs with it.

CBS runs. They all run with it. That Israel bombs a hospital and they're getting spoke.

They're getting quotes and their information from the Ministry of Health for Palestine. That's that's what we have. That's what you have to deal with. So wake up a few hours, a few hours, a few hours later, and we find out that, you know, they created their own bomb that misfired backwards.

Next day, you find out that it was a parking lot, mostly. Right. Not many people died. So what was the damage already done?

Yes. Because now you inflame it. You inflame hostility in the country here. And they're on the streets in Brooklyn and Detroit.

Well, look what happened in Detroit, by the way. You had over the weekend the head of the. Oh, my goodness. Now I'm not going to remember that lady's name either.

Let's see. Rabbi from Detroit was murdered, right? She was a leader there. Hang on. I'm looking it up right now. Samantha Wool is a Detroit synagogue leader, and she was stabbed to death outside of her home. And I don't see.

Let's see. They believe that the crime took place inside her home. At the moment, I don't see that they've made any arrests with regards to the case.

Right. But, you know, and you had the murder in France in, mispronouncing it, but R-O-U-E-N, ruling, I think is how you say that. But you had stabbings that happened there.

You had stabbings that happened in the UK, in London. We're watching this all over. And the hatred that went down, all these Israelis have murdered heads chopped off. It's just something we can't even fathom in our lives. And Joe Biden is lecturing us on Muslim hatred the other day and Muslim anti-Semitism. It's like, where did that come from?

Right? Well, but see, to me, the strings are being pulled. We're going to run out of time. But the strings are being pulled, in my opinion, by Obama. Obama has been running the government ever since he, you know, he never left. He moved six blocks down the road and he set up a shadow government. He's been running a shadow government ever since.

That's treason in and of itself. He ran a shadow government and undermined President Trump for four years. And then he's basically running it again. And he said in an interview, I know I can't hold the office again, but if I could have somebody in there whose strings I could pull, that would work out real well.

You got it. Because what did it make sense? Why would he buy a townhouse close in D.C.? Who does that? Most presidents retire. They go back home. They set up a library. They go to the philanthropy. They find other avenues to make money. And he just set up another shop there. Well, who sets up a cabinet?

Who hires back his chief of staff and has her moves into the house? You know, I mean, who who creates a cabinet when I mean, it's it's just it's it's really crazy, Adam. It's really, really crazy. Certainly is the times we're living in.

Yeah. Well, I appreciate you coming on and visiting with me today. We've covered a lot of ground folks and and every piece of this. You can you can look up yourselves and you can validate.

There's not anything that Adam and I have shared that you can't validate and find the accurate information. The hospital story, the baby story. CNN even decided to with to pull the story. And that was one of the reasons I brought Dr. Wormser on, because Dr. Wormser actually spoke with one of the IDF soldiers that was one of the first ones on the scene that witnessed it firsthand, saw this this gruesome scene, and just absolutely horrific. And and then they let the foreign correspondents in that took pictures of it. But of course, you know, the the Jewish people won't take pictures, they don't take pictures of dead bodies. That's that's they don't that's against their beliefs.

So Orthodox Jews are not going to take pictures of dead bodies. But that's why they bring the foreign correspondents in and they did. And that's what they're doing today. Yeah, they bringing in foreign correspondents to the press office to show these photos, because they know what they're fighting against. And if they can't actually show, yeah, look at the photos, media lead.

And I bet 60% of morning even after showing the photos still won't report on it. I know. I know. It's horrific. Well, you and I and others like us have got to keep putting the message out and keep telling people what's really going on. And the evil that we're fighting because this evil is not just over there. This evil is right here in this country. And we need to brace ourselves because it's coming for it for each one of us.

It truly is and we need to be prepared. Adam, thank you for being with us. Go ahead. Keep up the good work and thank you for having me.

My sincere pleasure. All right, we're going to take a break. Thomas McDonough is with us coming up right after this. We're going to talk about the family and how important it is. That's your key right now. Your key is God and family.

That's what's going to win this fight. God and the restoration of the family. We'll be back with more Children Generation Radio coming up right after this. Hi, this is Pastor Greg, and you're listening to Children Generation Radio. Get more at

People don't understand why there's so many autoimmune disorders, but our environment's toxic. The land, air and water have changed.

I know you have a choice to where you can listen each and every day and I thank you for keeping it tuned here to Chosen Generation Radio and watching us here on TUCN TV and across all of our broadcast networks as well as at the website, Well, I'm very pleased to welcome my next guest to the program. He is the founder of the American Family Project and I want to welcome to the program Tom McDonough. Tom, welcome. Good to have you. Mr. Gregg, thanks for having me on. I'm really excited about talking about what I'm doing. Well, I'm excited to hear about what you're doing. As I was closing out the last segment, I said, you know, the only way that we're going to get our country back is to first of all come to God and then secondly to restore the family.

And that's something that you've keyed in on. Talk to me about what was the genesis for the American Family Project. Well, I've been aware that the family has been deteriorating across many influences, not just the government, but it seemed that nobody was really noticing because it was happening so slowly.

It's like the frog that gets put in the water and then you turn up the heat and it starts to boil and it doesn't jump out. All of a sudden, you know, with the COVID and people watching what their kids were watching on, you know, getting in school, there was a big wake up call. And I don't think this is just a temporary blip.

I think this is, you know, really shifting of the tectonic plates and that we're going to see much more of this in the future. So, you know, we were seeing it happen on a local level at the at the school board level. And I began to ask myself, what can I do?

I already, you know, I'm here in Washington. And so I put together a couple of friends and we started the American Family Project to protect the family from the federal government, because that's where I am. We started so we looked at ways of being unique and we started with a scorecard scoring the votes of the members of the House of Representatives as to whether they're voting in favor of the family.

We took a big, we took a very wide approach. So with the assumption that everything that Congress does affects the family, we looked at everything, you know, not only education and tax policy and, you know, child care tax credits and the things that usually looked at but, you know, all the way to foreign policy. And you know, the first first scorecard came out in July of last year, and we had 15 members of Congress who got 100 percent. And so I went around and gave certificates of appreciation to these 15 members, to the staffs, because the members were out running for reelection at the time.

And at each of these little interviews, presentations, I suggest that Congress have a caucus just devoted to the family. And the staffs all felt this was a great idea. But as I gave out my 15th certificate of appreciation, I realized I'm just talking to staffers.

This may, this message may not even get to the members. So luckily, one of my board of advisors is a former member of the House. And I asked him, you know, what do I do now? It turns out his his first campaign manager is now the chief of staff for a member of Congress, Mary Miller from Illinois. And she thought this was a great idea. So he brought it to their attention.

He thought she thought this was a great idea. And back in March, she, two others created the Congressional Family Caucus, which is now up to 24 and growing. And this is, you know, so we finally have something in the House of Representatives, some group in the House of Representatives that are looking at the moral content of what Congress is doing. And these are all good, you know, God fearing people who are looking to do the right thing. And so I'm, I'm quite encouraged by that.

I mean, it's, you know, coming from nowhere. In six months, or in a year or so, we were able to encourage members of Congress to form this caucus. And then at that same time, as the as the scorecard was coming out, Congress voted to have the Disrespect for Marriage Act, putting same sex marriage as a national policy. And the pundits started complaining that, you know, the friends of the family, I don't want to get into political parties, but it's pretty obvious.

The friends of the family don't know how to talk about the family. And so I said, well, this is our mandate. Let's see what we can do. So we started back in August of this year. We talked about we we began a lecture series on the Constitution of the Family for Hill staffers.

So these are the people who influence the members, right, and write their legislation. So we started there. And we're eight lectures into this 10 lecture series. And we've covered some very important topics, always going back to natural law and God's law and, you know, are these being ignored or how we can get in, get them into legislation, how we can get members of Congress to focus on these things. And so that's been a lot of fun.

I've learned a lot. We've had 30 members, 30 staffers registered to this from from 30 from 30 different congressional offices. Some of them double up, but most of them are either congressional or Senate. There's that we've got five, five offices in the Senate. OK, so it's it's it's broad. Unfortunately, these 30 staffers only only a few, maybe one or two come from the members in the in the family caucus.

So that's a whole whole market that I haven't even tapped into yet or wasn't successful in tapping into. So so so let me get this right. So we have I think we said 24 members of the family caucus now. Yeah, we started with three. OK, so there's 24 members of this caucus that's supposed to be promoting and looking at how Congress is either promoting or injuring the family. Right. But of those 24. What is it, half their staffs are coming to your lectures or less than that or less than half?

So less than now. But now the purpose of your lectures, though, is to outreach to those that need to better understand. What why this is important and what this is about is, am I am I am I correct? Absolutely. Absolutely.

OK, so it's more it's more even your your lectures are more evangelical if we're putting it in those terms as opposed to preaching to the choir. In some cases, well, however, there's going to be great conversation that takes place in there that could potentially help the staffers to be able to influence the congressional members to write legislation that could move us in that direction and take us away from, as you put it, the disrespect for marriage act. Absolutely.

Absolutely. And so the 24 members of the family caucus is a. Is an even larger number of staffers who should be should be involved in the lectures that I'm offering the. The Congress, the family is never mentioned in the Constitution. And I had a conversation with Hadley Arkes, who's one of the renowned natural law relations with national law and the Constitution. I asked him whether the family is fully protected. And he said, well, now with this with this same sex marriage act, you know, it's it's kind of threatened.

So that's what I want to bring out. How can people talk about the family in terms of protections in the Constitution and that sort of thing? And we you know, this lectures are not they're not over yet, but we've had some very interesting ideas. Perhaps the most specific was Philip Hamburger, who's a professor of law at Columbia University, Columbia Law School, who has a new constitutional theory in that the parents. The well, the states have. They legislate that all the children have to have education of some sort, but then they only offer one free option, which is the state speech. And we see that, you know, in CRT, we see it in the transgender ideology that they're pushing and we see it.

But those are just the major offenses. Public schools demanding that students disrespect the authority their parents has been going on since the 60s. Well, part of that part of that as a UN is is driven by the UN. It's called the Convention on the Rice for a Child. And a lot of the states have embraced that.

Washington in the 1980s was the first one. That's why Michael Farris went to court. And it's actually the reason why he started Parental Rights, the Parental Rights Organization.

They started that because in the state of Washington, there was a case where a young man complained to his homeroom teacher that his parents made him go to church on Sunday and on Wednesday. And they and they and they literally he didn't come home. He did not come home. They took the boy. And yeah, yeah, the the teacher brought in the police and the police brought in Child Protective Services. And and they took that child out of that home because the parents wanted the child to the he was a teenager, but they wanted their their their son to to be to go to church with them on Sundays and on Wednesdays. And the court ordered that the only way they could get their child back was if they agreed to only take their son to church on Sundays, but no other time and they couldn't enforce any of the biblical teachings in their home or the or the child would not be coming home. Right, right.

So, Dr. Hamburger, Professor Hamburger argues that the obligation of parents to send their kids to school by the state, by individual states, plus the fact that the state only open offers a free option, which is state speech, is against the First Amendment rights of the parents and that he's he's hoping that that will go to the Supreme Court and prevail and then we'll get we'll be rid of all this this foolishness. So that was something that came out in one of our lectures. It's a new theory that he only published back in January.

And it hasn't been widely spread yet, but I think we're going to hear a lot more about that. So we were able to bring that to the attention of staffers and, you know, using this First Amendment rights that you're already on the books. I mean, it's not something that, you know, anybody could question. You're referencing the freedom freedom of religion portion of the First Amendment.

Is that what we're talking about? The freedom of speech. Freedom of speech. Okay. You know, it's the family has the first right of speech and you know that and the government can't interfere with that with its own government speech.

Right. So so anyway, that was one of the one of the outcomes of our of our lecture series on the Constitution of the Family. There's been a number of other points that have been brought up.

But that's just one thing. We're going to continue to to work on how to deal with staffers, how to advise staffers. One of the things that I've got that I'm working on right now is a curriculum on justice in the family so that it's justice for families. So everybody wants justice for something or other, but justice for families.

And we can go through, you know, what justice is, how the family deserves this justice and where that justice may be compromised by the administrative state, and then what legislators can do to correct that. So we do we do one quarter, we might do education, another, you know, health care. I can say one of one of the things, Tom, that that the state does, especially with their, you know, their welfare and their assistant programs, I mean, they discourage the family unit 100%. And I am a first hand witness to this back in the late 80s, early 90s, my wife and I were having some really serious financial challenges. And we were living with my mom for a year.

And I was actually an elder at the church, the Christian Church in California. And the job that I had just didn't pay enough for us to be able to afford, you know, rent and food and all that kind of stuff. And so they suggestion amongst the leadership there at the church was is, hey, there's, you know, you can get some temporary assistance. It's okay to get temporary assistance. So why don't you and your wife see we had two small children? Why don't you guys see, you know, if you can get some help for for a little bit while you're getting, you know, back on your feet. And so my wife made that phone call. She was told by the social worker, divorce your husband. Absolutely. You know, divorce your husband, and we will provide housing, food, cash aid, medical, will take care of you and the and the two kids, but you've got to divorce your husband, and make sure that he is not in your home.

Absolutely. And, you know, we've got to eliminate these types of programs and this type of mentality through the I mean, the big problem, of course, that you're aware of is the is the administrative state. And, you know, there's back in the 19th century, there were a number of writers who talked about the providential constitution. They saw the hand of God in the writing of our Constitution. It had blended two types of democracy that had always either left either resulted in anarchy or tyranny. So this is the individualistic Lockean theory of social contract, or what these writers called humanitarian democracy, which leads to socialism.

And these people saw that these are both good things, but they've never been synthesized before. And the way that the founders did it was so unique and so marvelous, that they only saw the hand of God in in all those negotiations. Well, it was it was a restoration, Tom to my to my thought process of, you know, they went back and and because obviously they were they were learned men, but they also were very biblically learned men, they were biblically literate, which is something we don't have a lot of today, which is an which is unfortunate, but but in their biblical literacy, they looked back to prior to the judges. And they saw an Israel that, yes, there was leadership, but every individual had their individual God given rights and responsibilities. And those that were placed in charge, had a responsibility to the people before God for how they handled the business of the people. And so they really worked towards accomplishing this constitutional republic. But I think that where the where the Lockean thing was, was John Locke believed that you had two hands that were out, one hand that was man's one hand that was God's handing people life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Our founders said, Wait, no, not exactly. Yes, there is a hand that wants to rest control of that.

That's King George. But King Jesus says that life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are literally blended in as who we are. They're not something that anybody hands to us. God doesn't even hand them to us. He made us that way. And that's a significantly different mindset and approach when it comes to morality and responsibility, and and how we act in light of the liberties that we've been given.

Right. So these writers and particularly, the one that catches my attention is arrestees, Brownson, who had, he loved the Constitution, and he saw it as divinely inspired, he called it the Providential Constitution. But he saw that it's even in his time and he's writing like five years after the Civil War, he sees that the Constitution is not being given the respect that it deserves as a providential Constitution, because the people who were in power aren't respecting God.

So he let me just read this because people aren't familiar with the rest of these brands. Let me just read you a paragraph. I cannot conceive a more profoundly philosophical or admirably devised Constitution than that of our own government. Yet the people have forgotten its providential origin, teach it as their own creation, as a thing they have made, and may alter it or unmake it at their pleasure. The progressive atheistic mind sees the violation of the Constitution as no moral offense, for it is the violation of no moral law, of no eternal and immutable right.

Nothing hinders the people when they find the Constitution in the way of some favorite project on which they are bent from trampling it under their feet and passing it on as if it never had any existence. And, you know, 10 years later, after 10 years after his death, we see, and he was already witnessing this, but 10 years after his death, the rise of the administrative state is clearly seen with the Civil Rights Act. The late 1800s. Yeah, the late 1800s. Yep, absolutely. And it hasn't gotten any better.

These people now, I mean, the administrative state, I think, is one of the biggest enemies of the family. Well, and philosophically, part of that was, was the quote, unquote, enlightenment, right, that took place in Europe, that was finding its way over here, which was really significantly changing America and the American Church, you know, and then you had on the, on the, on the biblical side, you had the teachings of Westcott Hort that were coming in. And in 1890, Westcott Hort, that whole thing, which is where our NIV comes from, and so many of our versions of Scripture today, that was considered to be heresy. Heresy.

And it was thrown out. And then you move from there, right, to Woodrow Wilson. I'm sorry, I didn't mean to interrupt you, but it, I mean, it's, it's the trajectory, but you're, man, I appreciate you bringing that up, because it's, that's our trajectory.

That's, that's just a mere hundred years later, and we're, and we were out in the wilderness. Yeah, so the administrative state is the biggest obstacle to the family right now. And as far as the government, you know, you can have entertainment, you can have all those other stuff that is, is threatening the family and fatherhood and that sort of thing.

But from my perspective, in my, you know, my world, which is Washington, it's the administrative state. And these are the people who, you know, you hear these people screaming about democracy as being threatened. What they're, what is threatened is their jobs in the administrative state, these two million jobs in the administrative state. Most of them feel that the state is more, is more, has more authority than God.

Well, there's no, yeah, there's no question. I'm looking forward to seeing the Supreme Court take up the two cases on the Chevron doctrine to see if we can't unwind that administrative state by next spring. Hopefully that's going to take place.

That would be good news. The other piece to this too, that I push back on a lot, Tom, and I don't know if you'll agree with me or not, but we've got to stop referring to it as a democracy. It's a constitutional republic. It's a representative constitutional republic. And the minute that we give them that democracy ground, we've immediately stepped onto their slippery slope where they want us so they can push us into socialism and then communism.

Right. So the, the thing of democracy, as soon as you start talking about democracy, you're getting into socialism and all that equality. They're looking to equality. Well, equity. They're looking for equity. They don't want equality.

Yeah. They don't want any, they don't want equality. They don't want everybody to have equal opportunity. They want to create equity where they decide who the players are on the field, what equipment they're going to wear and what the rules are for the game.

And that's how you're going to play it the way they want you to play it. Absolutely. Yep. Am fam project. We've run out of time. I apologize. Am fam

We'll get you back. I know there's a lot more to cover. Yep, absolutely. Am fam a M F a M project dot org. Be sure and get it done and check it out.
