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. That was a shooting gallery up there. I could hear the tremble in his voice. She suffered a very severe being. The video is pretty graphic.

Justice for us seems almost impossible. It's not fun to watch somebody die, and they knew she was in mortal peril. They have not asked the hard questions. Why was the Capitol intentionally unsecure that day? The FBI had information about security concerns before January 6th. They're out for blood, and they're getting it. They appear to be winning. Were the actions of the Capitol Police out of line? Were there violations in use of force?

Now I describe it as an inside job. I'm ready to do whatever God calls me. There's an old Chinese saying my ancestors learned before the Communist Party took over our country. The family is the essential unit of human society, and that you must have honor and defend your family. But it's not always easy to do.

When the regime gives the order, you have to kill. My heart was pounding. I felt my body bouncing and twisting on the floor. They put numbers on our shoulders, then separated us into rows of even and odd numbers.

I was number nine. My brother, he's still in prison, and my sister, she was sent to a labor camp without a trial. But there's one piece of evidence they haven't been able to destroy yet.

I left everything behind. If I can't expose what they did to us, then all of our suffering would be for nothing. 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. And welcome to the program. Great to have you with me. Hang on.

Let me push the right button here. Here we go. All right. Hey, welcome aboard. Great to have you with me. Thanks for being here.

I have a great program lined up for you today. And I'm going to just take a moment here in just a second to talk to you a little bit about the celebration that was this weekend as well. But first of all, let me let you know that coming up at the bottom of our number two, we'll be joined by Damon Grayson, author of When His Ways Meet Yours. When You Love You, he will follow suit and addressing black fatherhood. And we'll talk with him about that and his journey out of Compton. We'll also be talking with Professor Steven Zunes from the Department of Politics at the University of San Francisco about the Menendez indictment and Egypt. So that should be an interesting conversation. And then Chris Eddy, Eddy for Congress.

He's running for congressional seat in Florida and in the 25th district Broward County. So we'll talk with Chris Eddy coming up as well. But joining me now to start things off, and I'm so pleased to have him with me, my good friend Dr. David Wormser. Dr. Wormser, welcome. Good to have you. It's always great to be with you, Pastor.

And I thought I'd just take a minute. Many of you may not know. And if you're if you're whether you're Jewish or whether you're a Christian, you really should know. Obviously, if you're Jewish, you probably do know this. If you're Christian, you may or may not know this. And as far as prophetic timetables are concerned, Christians look at what the Savior did and the idea that he fulfilled two of the four seasons.

But there's two more seasons to come that we believe he hasn't fulfilled either. And one of those is Sukkot. And Sukkot commonly goes by the name of the season of our joy. For joy predominates this holiday more than any other Jewish people around the world construct Sukkot, a singular sukkah, frail huts or booths that remind us of God's provision and our dependence on him. Sukkot is a memorial to remind us of the building of booths during our ancestors wanderings in the wilderness.

The Feast of Tabernacles was an annual reminder to the people that God is the Great Shepherd, who has chosen to tabernacle among us to protect and to bless them wherever they wandered. Did I get that? Did I get that pretty accurately, David?

Very accurately. And it is also one of the three pilgrimage holidays. And the three main ones. And and and we also look at on a New Testament from we look at Revelation and the and the thousand years as as also being associated with this, that when Messiah returns, he'll usher in that thousand years. And that also is is a part of him tabernacling with us for for 1000 year reign. So there's a there's a prophetic, you know, a to come, if you will, relative to that, that's, that's pretty exciting.

Yeah, absolutely. It's it's it's a great holiday. This whole season, which falls in September October on the Jewish calendar is is a you have one holiday after another, but they are the really important holidays other than Passover. There is no holiday that outranks any of those holidays and even Passover is is, you know, only on par in some ways. Yeah, Rosh Hashanah and and and the 10 Days of Awe and and then the Day of Atonement, which the 10 Days of Awe is the time to reflect on, on on your own life to look at to be introspective about and and and to seek atonement and then ultimately the Day of Atonement where wherein we say we remember and for those who again, you know, who who may believe that in in Christ who do believe in Jesus having already come it's it's a reminder of that that he's come that that there has been an atonement that has been made. So whether you are of a Jewish faith and and and you know how that God is the one who forgives you of your sins, we know the same thing and and it's a matter of atonement.

Yep. And then and then at the end of that you have Shemini Atzterit, which is literally means the eighth, eighth, eighth stop, which is the end now in in Israel. A lot of these holidays like Rosh Hashanah and Sukkot are celebrated outside of Israel for one for two days and inside of Israel for one day. Sukkot is actually celebrated for eight days. You sit in the Sukkot for eight days. But the first day, the last day are holidays, which in the Jewish calendar means all the laws of Sabbath apply. No lights, no driving, no work, et cetera, et cetera. You're shut down to reflect and rest. The other days are our normal work days, but but they're still considered holy.

And there's one more coming up this next weekend, right? That's Shemini Atzterit. That's the end of Sukkot.

It goes straight into Shemini Atzterit, which is sort of the end of the cycle. So and these these are what we know were celebrated many, many years ago, not just 2000 years ago. But we know these are these are original holidays. Passover obviously wasn't celebrated before Egypt.

Right. Well, they were handed down by the by the Levitical priesthood, right? Where is it was that it was, but they were probably much older than that.

OK. OK. They were much older than that. We see even in the time of before Abraham, there are signs that some of these were already there. Whereas, you know, one thinks of Hanukkah as a critical holiday, but Hanukkah is actually a national holiday that was really only started about 200, 300 B.C.

only. Right. And these are ancient, ancient things. But they were they are related to the Greek. Hanukkah is related to the Greek, the war against the Greeks that the Jews waged the Maccabees. So it's much more recent. But those are those are those are really original. Those high holidays are really original to to. And there's been a lot of evidence that would that would seem to suggest that that that the birth of of, you know, Messiah actually happened in in probably in September or October. Right.

Right around now, actually, late September, early October. There's a a program that NASA now has because when they when they launch a space ship, they have to be able to project where things are going to be in orbits when they put a satellite up and so on. So they actually have a program now that can that can basically, you know, follow and chart paths of planets and so on to pretty much let them know where they can tuck a satellite in that's not going to get smashed.

And as a result of being able to do that, they also then can go backwards. And I was actually at a presentation, I know seven or eight years ago with a gentleman who was a part of actually creating that program for NASA. And and he showed us going backwards, the star that the magi followed, and and when it actually was in the sky, and it was actually in the sky somewhere around September, October, I forget it, but it was about, you know, roughly 2000 years ago, or thereabouts, but yeah, but he was able to actually, you know, he showed us this is how going backwards, how we track, and here's where it shows up. And what was even more amazing, and I know we weren't planning on getting into this, but what was even more amazing was, was, was the was the, you know, we refer to them as the zodiac signs. But but he gave actually an actual understanding of what some of those were, in ancient times from a from a biblical perspective.

I don't remember all of it, but it was it was just amazing. It was like God wrote out creation in you know, and he says that he says that he revealed creation in the sky. Well, this gentleman was able to show us by constellations how God literally did that.

I mean, no, it's amazing. Look, the ancients watched. They saw signs.

Yeah. And they watched. We nowadays, I mean, we can't even see the stars mostly in our cities. But, but they they watch they watch the and they watch both the moon and the sun. I mean, Judaism is based on I mean, it's ultimately based on the solar calendar because seasons and as you see, the high holidays follow seasons and it's, it's an accurate calendar. It follows the lunar calendar, but it's an adjusted lunar calendar to the sun.

So it's actually a dual calendar. But but so you'll see every four over four years, Jewish holidays drift forward because the lunar calendar is shorter than the sun. But then every fourth year, there's an adjustment month that is adjusted to the solar calendar. So all of a sudden that snaps back so so the lunar calendar is adjusted now to the solar calendar interest so stretches and then and then pulls back in every four years there's a leap month got it in Judaism.

So one month is just a month one and month to same month, one and two. So it is a lunar calendar because that's what the ancients also followed the moon because if you're following flooding and tides and all that sort of stuff that the lunar calendar becomes critically important. But on the other hand, it's the solar calendar that determines seasons and years.

I mean, that's the foundation. So yeah, now the Muslims, they undid the adjustment. So their calendar drifts on a lunar calendar and their calendar drift. So Ramadan can fall any time of year, it depends on which year you're in. So it drifts about three quarters of a month or about a quarter a month to half a month every year interest times Ramadan is in our July, sometimes it's in our December. So there's is not a seasonally solar adjusted calendar and seasons don't mean and that's not a very agricultural society, right?

You can't really have an agricultural, sedentary, urban society without being solar based. Got it. Interesting, interesting. It's interesting. They knew all these cycles. They knew the stars, they knew the zodiacs, they and they they took they drew story. They understood what it meant or they they believed. And that's what it was. I mean, they did this matter to them.

They'd forgotten a lot. Well, and that and and that there was I mean, all the evidences that that supports for the for a creator, who has written these messages in the sky to give you an idea as to what has come to reveal to you what is about you know, I mean, that's why they could, you know, they were able to predict a lot of the things that took place and and and and the prophetic was, was a was a very, very real thing, even predicated on being able to read those seasons. Look, you can't look at this stuff and not not appreciate that there's an intelligence behind it all. Yeah.

You can't. I mean, it's too brilliant. It's just too brilliant. It's whatever, but but man's but man's man's busy. Yeah, man's busy ignoring that and and and and unraveling so much of what is, you know, we continue I actually I posted something that I had posted three years ago up on my Facebook page just yesterday. And and it hang on a minute.

My goodness. All right, there we go. But it was related to something that Black Lives Matter put up now. Now this is interesting. I posted it. And let's try this one more time and see if it shows its inner face. Facebook has been there we go.

Okay. So um, this this is essentially was was the the page that they took down, but it was there. And I bring it up because it had to do with the the deconstruction of traditional family and traditional family values. And that was that was their stated goal.

They they actually originally said this is what we want to do. We want to destroy traditional family, we want to destroy traditions. And you know, the I guess the the the irony and all that is, is that's what man has been doing. That's what sin is really about. But that the rebellion, that's really what what man has been doing since the beginning of time.

Yeah, absolutely. I mean, we have this destructive impulse, this sinful impulse. Moreover, in this modern way, the family and religion are the two greatest barriers to to their totalitarian radical agenda, right? To communism. This is why you have communists ultimately break down families who did the best example of it was Cambodia and the killing fields, all pot, they destroyed the family because the family was a barrier to their absolute power. So when you see Black Lives Matter, say this, they're putting themselves in the same category as Paul Pot and the Cambodian communists in the 80s, which were the killing fields and where they killed an enormous amount of people enormous, but I think we're talking about a third of their own people.

So they, they, these are dangerous ideas and dangerous people that come from the darkest parts of the human heart. So yeah, it's really quite, quite stunning when you stop and think about what it is that, you know, that that man has, has has done. And then when you think about the grace and the mercy that God has shown us in in the in the midst of all of that, by by providing us with an opportunity for you know, for a for his version of a reset.

Yes, yes. And that's what has carried history through to where we are in a positive way. And that's what we'll carry history through further in a positive way, if we stick to it.

All right, I want to get in a couple of things. We we've talked in in past conversations about the, the judicial reform in Israel, and the comparative to, you know, to what's happening over here. New story out in the Washington Times, Justice Sotomayor's lack of respect, justices stew as High Court opens new term. And this is in reference to a couple of dissenting opinions from the last term, where she dropped the usual decorum of saying respectfully dissent and instead she just said, I dissent. It's interesting as I was looking at this, you know, I recollect when when she was pushing her homosexual agenda through, remember her decision about Obergefell and pushing that and about the basically voting down the DOMA, which is the Defense of Marriage Act. Her statement basically was is that she she personally her own personal belief was that the Defense of Marriage Act was offensive.

Well offensive is not a legal term. And that's a problem right there because feelings are not what determine law neither is by the way, people must understand neither is morality per se, it's it's a process there's, it's based on a structure of values that are based on the idea of individual rights, which is based on the idea of divine granting inalienable rights. Well, who's the one who gave us those inalienable rights, our creator and who's our creator God. So ultimately, it all reduces to God.

And then you have a process to guarantee those rights, you don't have an ideological morality, and you're offended, because you're LGBT or whatever, that's not a legal concept. It's, it's there's a whole structure there. But more than that, I think, I think what you're seeing is the danger from the left for the courts. They see the courts as an instrument of political power, not as a judicial structure. To me, that's, yeah, that just real quick, that that's, that's the hypocrisy of, of their statements, because they're accusing the majority of, of some kind of political tyranny, while they themselves by every word that they say, they they label themselves as political anarchists against the court. Yeah, now, this is where I think the what's going on in Israel is very important, because they're attacking the court, because they're trying to take it over. They're trying to take it over from leather. The Biden administration has appointed a tremendous amount of judges underneath the level of the Supreme Court, we've got a big problem coming down the pike.

Okay. Because of that, the conservatives more or less still control the Supreme Court, which is why they're attacking it. But ultimately, the left's key target is the courts.

Why? Because it's not democratic. They're not elected. So they don't like the American people, they they don't like populism, they don't like the popular will, because ultimately, they're too radical, ultimately, to convince the majority of Americans. So they need a structure that's more powerful than the democratic verdict. And that's the courts, if the courts are activists, or even worse than activists become legislative and executive, and run the country. And that's where they're headed, they want to take over the Supreme Court, and then they will be the biggest empowers of the Supreme Court, because the Supreme Court will become the entire government. That's where you are in Israel. That's the model for them.

All right. Let me throw this out there, though, because you're you're mentioning, and I think we need to define some of these terms, you're mentioning populist or, or, you know, others, others refer to that as nationalist, in in terms. And, and then we tie that into, you know, pure democracy.

And I think we need to define those terms, because it's not about simply mass rule, when you when you're, you know, so so define what you mean, when you're saying that they're pushing against the populace, because because they would like us to believe that the popular opinion is theirs. And subsequently, the popular opinion, remember what they did with Biden, right? Oh, he got 81 million votes.

Well, we didn't get anyone. But but that was so explain what you mean by what you mean by populace, populace, I mean, majority rule, but in the United States, we don't have a direct democracy nor do we have pure majority rule, we have all sorts of ways to make sure that we're talking about a deeper, longer term will of the American people that is reflected in government, we have, first of all, districts that and various levels of government that are independent of each other. So governors, for example, the majority of governors are more conservative, even though the federal government is is run by Biden, you have two, two branches of government independent of the judicial, you have the executive and you have the legislative, so you have one group legislating laws, but they can't implement them. And then you have the executive, which can a veto and be implements the laws. And and obviously, the implementer of laws can interpret how those laws need to be. So you have all these checks and balances to make sure that the will of the American people doesn't go off the rails and suddenly, you know, legislate laws that everybody with green, you know, with with green eyes should be executed. It just it can't happen here, not only because of the courts, the courts are a third part of this balance. So we're an attenuated democracy, democracy, the American will, the the popular will does matter.

But there are breaks against these momentary emotional sudden swings. Also, by the way, Senate, that's why it's six years. And the house is two years the house is supposed to be much more reflective of direct democracy, right? The Senate is supposed to be the brakes. So Senate Senate is also an unfortunate this is part of why our systems broke David Stokes and I talked about it, the 17th amendment and the fact that the Senate was taken out of the state's hands and became basically a a a subculture of of of popular vote or a subculture of, you know, a little mini presidents basically is is kind of what they are in a manner of speaking, which is to the detriment of our constitutional republic. So we have these all these constitutional republican structures that ensure our democracy functions properly and responsibly and in a mature way.

What the left is going toward is something even worse, which is they basically don't trust the long term, or even the mature form of democratic will, they want to just do away with the popular will because they advocate positions that are so radical, that the majority will never accept it. Fathers and mothers will never accept their daughters in high school showering with a transvestite who still has all this plumbing. It's just no, it's just, you know, it will never be a majority view. And parents, you love your child, and you don't want them threatened. Right.

And parents are never going to go full bore on the idea of you giving their kids drugs to either castrate their boys, or or or remove healthy breasts from their girls. We're going to run out of time. Yeah, one last thing, and then we'll cover this the next time that you're on. But you know, the other piece to this that I think we need to be paying attention to is the three liberal justices, Kagan, Sotomayor, and and Briar have have made it very clear that they are disgruntled about being in the minority. And this is trying very hard, I think, to set the table for the widening of and the increase of the number of justices. And I think we need to be paying very close attention. Now you've got with now you've got dissension within the court, in an effort to try to change the makeup of the court, while you've got a radical synonym with what happened with Feinstein's death. And now all of that that's taking place, apparently Newsom has put in an openly homosexual black woman to replace Feinstein.

Look, there is an agenda of foot folks to destroy the moral fiber of this country. And we need to be paying attention to it. Dr. David, thank you for being here. I greatly appreciate it. Thank you so much for your time today. Center for Security Policy. Dr. David Wormser, I'm your host, Pastor Greg, you're listening to Children's Generation Radio.

And welcome back to Chosen Generation Radio where no topic is off limits and everything filtered through biblical glasses. I'm your host, Pastor Greg. Thanks so much for being here. I know you have a choice on where you can listen each and every day, and I thank you for keeping it tuned here to Chosen Generation Radio.

It's interesting. We'll have the conversation here in a second. So I'm very pleased to welcome my next guest. Let me go ahead and get him lined up here and on. His name is Chris Eddy.

He is running for the 25th district in the state of Florida. And you know, Chris, we were talking just now about San Angelo. So 86 is when my wife and I got married out there in San Angelo. And I was running a fast food restaurant there called Short Stop that you might well have gone through. It was next to the Wiener Schnitzel. I'm sure I have.

You know, I was 21 at the time and my body could take anything and I needed to keep fueling my brain for those tough intelligence courses. 100%. 100%. Yeah, we were out on Sherwood. We were between us and Wiener Schnitzel and then the Shakeys down the street.

That's pretty much where everybody went for food. Yeah, yeah. Good deal.

Good deal. Well, welcome aboard. Good to have you with me. Thanks for being here.

Oh, thank you for the invite. It's always good to try to get our message out and to find like-minded people throughout the country. Well, you know, Broward County, that has been a real battleground, you know, I mean, going all the way back. Well, I don't know that back back even into the 90s. Quite honestly, you know, that that was is wasn't that the the the yeah, the hanging the hanging chads of Al Gore and George W. Bush in 2000. That was Broward. And then Broward also has been the center of a number of controversies with regards to punishing students for bringing Bibles to school or praying in the cafeteria.

And and even gone against court orders as it relates to that, if I if I'm if I remember correctly. Yeah, I think the governor's done a great job at trying to get a lot of those issues fixed that previous election supervisors no longer there. We now have a West Point graduate in there Joe Scott and the last couple of elections have run smoothly.

We trust the process down here. And we're trying to encourage as many people as we can to get out and vote. They tend to think of Broward County is one block but my district is just half of Broward County and it's the light blue light red county.

So it used to be 48% in my district of Democrats now it's only 42%. Okay, so it's definitely winnable. It's not the the sure thing for the current incumbent as it has been the past 1618 years. So you know, we have a game on our hands and we're looking for all the support we can get. Talk to me a little bit about your you're running for the congressional seat, not the seat, but for the for the congressional seat out of out of out of that particular district, correct?

Exactly right. US House of Representatives and Florida District 25. And the current incumbent is Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who or a visceral reaction. But I have to tell you, four or 5000 doors already, we're getting a lot of great support from Democrats, we have a lot of Democrats that are supporting us simply because either run ins with her, or more frequently, they don't like the direction of the country. Well she's she's just, you know, she's very tightly linked, of course, to the whole, you know, Obama's and, and even Clinton's but I mean, as far as she's probably one of the most radical members of Congress that goes under the radar that I can think of. Yeah, the I think that people want to change.

That's what I'm hearing. I hear from a lot of Democrats when 74% of the country thinks we're headed in the wrong direction. You know, that's both sides of the aisle. So they're looking for somebody that's credible, that has experience that can represent our district and not the Washington District, too many politicians, not just her too many go up to DC and start representing DC interests instead of their districts. I've been a city commissioner for three years and very well known here, just for taking care of city issues. You know, we won a very short race I got in on the last day.

It's interesting story by itself. But even though we were in a three person race, I won with the most votes in city history in just a four month campaign. So there is an appetite out there from across the aisle to win. Well, and for somebody who has competency and some proven track record, your personal history indicates that you have a grasp of managing large groups and also of hearing from constituents.

Yeah, that's right. I'm a retired Air Force Reserve Brigadier General. I spent 30 years in the Air Force and loved every second of it, most of it in the reserves, but full time reserves. So concurrently, I had a civilian job and my last 13 years were with the FBI here in Miami, where we took the program to be number one intelligence program out of 56 in the FBI nationwide.

So we've had some great success. I also have a couple masters and a PhD in leadership. And I teach at Florida International University. And I focus on national security, foreign policy and intelligence issues and try to train future analysts into our intelligence community.

I'm sure you have to get this question. But what what do you think fixes our current FBI situation? I mean, we had FISA violations. We've got them spying on Catholics and Catholic churches. I do not believe that we had an insurrection on January the 6th. I believe that we had some very bad actors. And the more we find out about that, the more we find out that many of them were federal informants and even maybe potentially federal agents that were engaged in activities that were designed to create a scenario, almost a form of psyops. And I'm not, as a former Russian linguist and Air Force intel myself, I'm not one that's prone to, you know, to jump into the whole psyops conversations very easily.

But my goodness, what happened there is, is, is really stunning. How do we fix and that'll be something that will be on your plate? Obviously, if you're elected and you win and you go to Congress, we're going to be looking to members of Congress like yourself with your background, you know, the Sam Faddis kind of guys that are going to get in there and fix the problem. What do we do, Chris? Well, thank you for your service, by the way. I know we talked prior to the show about that.

It's not easy to sacrifice like that, but I know you got a lot out of it, I'm sure, and probably more than you gave, and that tends to be the case. What I've learned throughout my career, especially in leadership, is it all starts at the top. It's all leadership and the same with the FBI.

The FBI has to follow with the Attorney General guidelines state, whatever the Attorney General prefers, and then obviously the head of the FBI sets the tone for that. I don't think any sane person can look at it and say that we have a fair system of justice. There's definitely a two tier system. When you trap a great patriot like General Flynn in the White House and try to ring them up and bankrupt them on just simple memory issues when you knew the truth versus somebody like Andy McCabe from the FBI who lied to agents, admitted lying, and then recovered his full pension as a GoFundMe account, a spot on network TV.

There's many instances, obviously, but there's that two tier system of justice. It all starts with leadership. I've done that in the past at the FBI and Air Force.

I was the turnaround guy they would bring in when they had shops that weren't performing well. We just created a system of processes and procedures and again that strong leadership at the top and that's what's needed in our Department of Justice and frankly, in our US Congress as well. It had to be heartbreaking to watch those whistleblowers talking about how their lives are being destroyed for coming forward and identifying the things that you just talked about and just some of the just atrocious behavior of these agents. Yeah, Nicole Parker who left the FBI is a friend of ours.

We knew her from the Miami field office and she said other people have left the FBI because they weren't satisfied with the direction it's taken. When I was in, it didn't seem to be a major issue at the field offices. It was more of a headquarters thing. Right, right. We signed the headquarters when that whole Russia thing was there.

I was up there temporarily working the China desk. I think and I know that there was people back then that knew there was nothing to that Russia hoax, yet they pursued it hoping to find something if they just kept turning over rocks and we can't investigate the individual hoping to find a crime. That's not a good way to go about running this country.

No, not at all, not at all. All right, so let's get back to the things that you see. I mean, again, that's going to be I think one of the things that you're going to need to be addressing that we need. Now we have the situation with regards to the House speakership and that situation that's going on.

Give me your thoughts and your assessment on where we are with regards to current leadership in the House. I think it revolves around money. We are spending way too much money in this government and those congressmen and senators that recognize it are trying to blow the whistle and say, how hard is it just to reduce spending one percent, two percent?

And they're getting pushback on that. When I looked last year, this federal government spent four hundred million dollars on border security in the Middle East, in the Middle East. And you can see we have six million coming across in the last three years. Yet we're sending hundreds of millions of dollars overseas, billions to Ukraine. And the GAO just came out with a report that said our own soldiers and airmen and Marine and all of our military personnel are living in substandard barracks with toxic waste, with mold. So my position is no more money for Ukraine, one, until we take care of our own troops, two, until we don't deplete our own military stocks, which President Biden wrongly admitted, and then three, until there's a strategy to win.

There's no strategy to win. I don't know why we're spending hundreds of billions of dollars. So it's a financial issue.

Everybody knows it's a ticking time bomb. And now we're there. We're projected to be two trillion dollars in debt and deficit this year. Our debt. When I started his campaign, we were thirty two trillion in debt. Now we're thirty three trillion in debt. You know, what's a trillion dollars among friends?

They just throw these numbers out there. It's very difficult to see a path where we could pay this back eventually. And you're risking high inflation for decades to come unless we get a handle on our budget.

And it's not a tax problem. It's a spending problem. We have to quit spending money. So how do we how do we voice the message?

Because obviously, the media, the Democrats, everybody is, you know, up in arms about the idea that that there would have been a government shutdown. How do we how do we message that to the American people? You mentioned this 74 percent do not believe that we're headed in the right direction.

Yet if you pick up, you know, some of the national rags and watch their evening performances, you're not going to get that feeling. You're going to get the idea that, you know, and this is the same thing, by the way, that we ran to do what 40 years ago. Right. We had a Republican majority, even under President Trump, when, you know, we had Ryan, we had Boehner and and it was everybody's dissatisfied with Congress, both both Republicans and Democrats. But they tried to pin it as though it was a Republican problem when you and I both know that that wasn't the issue at all.

It was a unit party problem. But how do we message that? Or do you think that we're messaging that enough? Here's what I've learned.

We've knocked on just about 5000 doors already and talk a lot of people on fixed income. A lot of them don't pay attention to the news, but they do pay attention to their grocery prices and their gas prices. My mom's 92 lives up in New York and she said, why is the price of eggs so high? Why is milk so high? She doesn't draw the correlation at the government spending a lot of money, which increases the money supply, therefore causes inflation.

She doesn't need to know all that. She doesn't need to watch the networks to know that everything is gone up. You know, grocery prices, 20 percent gas, 40 percent. And that's how it hits their daily lives. The result of this is to cause it as too much spending in the federal government. So as long as they see those gas prices high, the food prices high, which aren't coming down, by the way, especially if you're paying $20 an hour for minimum wage at McDonald's in California, you know, those prices are going to skyrocket out there. Those people will get the message. And that's what we're hearing in this district already, that people are fed up. They don't know why necessarily the prices are up, but they want somebody to address it and to talk to them honestly about that. We have a retirement community down here and they're raising the association fees and one to two hundred dollars a month. And there's women and men crying because they have to move because they make nine hundred a month in Social Security. So two hundred a month, they can't wipe some out.

Yeah. And nobody seems to care. Nobody seems to care that this administration is more focused on student loan repayments and Social Security payments. Oh, that whole thing with Sotomayor is just disgusting to me.

All right. So the other thing that that that pops into my mind is, is I was talking with a gentleman who's running and he was saying, well, you know, there's our representative brought back less money to our district. And and so that's one of the things they're running on is, is that they're going to make sure that they you know, that they bring that money back into the district. And my response was, well, wait a minute, I thought we were trying to cut spending. And their response was, look, we're going to spend that money anyway. And somebody in some bigger district like New York or whatever is going to get it.

So I'm going to fight over that in order to get my. So in other words, I'm going to try to bribe my voters. Are the voters I mean, aren't the voters smart enough to realize that that that when you bring all those handouts into the district, that those are actually your taxpayer dollars or somebody else's and and and that's what's making it harder for you.

I mean, that's why your grocery prices are going up. Yeah, if they don't draw that correlation, they do see the end result of it. And you know, that's what leaderships about leaderships about making those hard decisions that affect a greater good. And we need a strategy to do that. And there are different proposals on how to bring down that spending how to fix social security.

So it's sustainable for the long run. But people don't want to talk about it. Oh, I'm going to get canceled or I'll get primary. Here's a couple of things I learned, which is very disheartening that when you get up to D.C. and when I'm elected as a congressman, they come to you and they say, you have to vote yes on this bill, even though it raises spending. If not, we're going to primary against you and we're not going to help you in the next campaign.

And they threaten you. You're not going to get a committee assignment. You're going to do this. I don't need that. I don't need to be invited to parties.

You know, I just don't need to be part of that system. I've had successful careers. I'm here to fix things for the short and long term. And we need more people like that.

And the other the other thing to watch out for just and you're probably already aware of this. But and I remember asking my state rep when he was going up and that was a waste of time. He's he turned into me. He's one of the guys that was he actually led the secret squirrel meetings that led to Attorney General Paxton's impeachment. But and we're going to primary him. But nonetheless, that is and I've talked to people who say, well, we need term limits. My response to that is, OK, that's all well and good.

But the name on the door is not the problem. It's the people in the office and the ones, as you said, that are that are influencing that representative by threatening them. So how do you and and having been a retired general, how do you find the staff and what do you do to clean your office out when you get there so that so that you don't have those kinds you don't have because that's what President Trump battled. And I've talked with Peter Navarro about it. He wrote a book about that. President Trump really thought I can just I can handle all of the branch.

I can I can make friends with these people. And he realized after four years, you can't. And I know when he gets back up there that he's not gonna. But nonetheless, what do you do as a congressman to fix that issue in your own office? You have to first lead.

You can't let your office lead you. I get people telling me, well, who's running your campaign? I'm running my campaign. Who's going to run my office? I'm going to run my office. I'm going to set the agenda and tell them what to do.

Obviously, I'll have trusted people in there. And I'm looking for other Republicans when I'm up there to find solutions to how to reduce the spending that we have. And there are multiple proposals already out there. We just have to get enough people on board. Term limits are part of the solution, I believe, because, well, first of all, nobody should be up there 60, 70 years, honestly, and make a career out of it like that.

That's not what it's designed for. They just get addicted to that power. And that's really all they've ever known. You know, they don't want to come home and work at a 7-Eleven or do something different. I'm fine doing that.

I'm fine going up there for two or three terms and coming back to my family and my puppy and resuming life. They just have such an ego that nobody could do this but me because we have all these connections. We know how the process works.

Well, in the military, you switch jobs every two or three years and you figure it out. That's what leadership's about. Yeah.

Yeah. What do you think about how the Freedom Caucus is handling business up there? Is that the direction that you would go? Do you see yourself aligning with that group? I would think so, but it's hard to say what it's going to look like in a year and a half when I take office. We'll have to judge it after the elections. I like to base my decisions on results, right?

How effective has it been? Is it just in name only and I can belong to this club? I've been asked to join a lot of charities down here in South Florida. I don't because I don't think they're effective and I don't want to just a resume filler saying, oh, he's on the board of directors of this and this. But if you can't have impact, you're not really doing anything. So I want to look for organizations and groups that can have impact on my three primary objectives, fiscal discipline, improving our security, both foreign and domestic and increasing the civility up there. You know, you can disagree with people without calling them un-American and hating on them. And we need to lower the temperature nationwide a little bit and realize that we need to advance our agenda. But we could also do that in a civil way without name calling. Our side generally tends to be conservative.

I mean, that's the brand name. You know, President Trump, when he came in, I think kind of said, hey, you know what, we've tried just being nice with you people and you don't pay attention to that. You don't like to play nice. And so he's not had a problem doing a little brawling with them as necessary. Personally, I don't have a problem with that because I think that we've laid down and compromised way too often in our efforts to do that.

Where do you see that balance then as it relates to? Because it seems to me like the other side is saying, we're taking over and we will find a way to destroy your life if you get in our way. Yeah, we have to fight, right?

We have to be fighters. Being civil means being professional about it, you know, calling somebody fat or ugly or whatever. Right. That's right. Okay. I gotcha.

That's what I mean by that. We need to be professional and we fight on the issues because the issues are what Americans are concerned about. If you start calling people names, Americans tune out and they say, well, that doesn't help.

How does calling somebody fat or ugly or whatever deal with my inflationary problem? So what we need to do is pick those two or three issues every term and say, we're going to fight on inflation and we're going to fight on defense spending or wasting money overseas or fighting back against China. And that's what we need to do.

We need to get away from the name calling and say, here's our battles and here's where our lines are and here's what we're going to fight. Well, I have to confess, I was guilty. I called Eric Swalwell a Chinese spy whore, but I really think that he was. Well, you know, he had some experience, right?

Chinese spies. So if you break that down, it's probably fairly accurate. Yeah. It wasn't, it wasn't really a slander. It was, it was a fact. He was, you know, something else too, is that there's no shame anymore.

I was in Washington. Certainly there's no consequences, right? Right.

Normally people would turn away in shame and go, Oh my God, I got caught. You know, I'll do the right thing. And yes, I made a mistake. When's the last time you heard anybody in DC? Well, and Eric Swalwell to the point was sleep. Just folks again, as a reminder, Eric Swalwell was sleeping with a Chinese madam who was a spy that has been proven that has been evidenced. In addition to that, he was in the house intelligence. He was in the house intelligence committee and he introduced her whores who were also spies to other members of the committee and other members who had vital information. And Reuters came out within a year and said that an NSA spy software was being used by the CCP.

And gee, I wonder where did they get that information? So, I mean, these are the kinds, and Swalwell is still to this day defiant about it. Oh, and you got trained on this. I got trained on this, on the honey traps, right?

Absolutely. When I got promoted to general, they called us all in and they said, listen, you're not any better looking today than you were yesterday. So how many people up there all of a sudden get approached by women go, look, I'm attractive. People like me. That's not the case.

Not even close. Well, but as you said, I think this is where Final Minute, I'd love to, we could have gone even further in this, but this is part of the problem because you have no morality. At the end of the day, there's no morals.

So therefore, you're an eye day, okay? You know, if you were committing a homosexual act, you got busted under UCMJ. If you were committing adultery, you got busted under UCMJ. There were consequences for moral failures. There's no consequences for a moral failure.

In fact, you're celebrated now. And I think Bill Clinton did that to us with Monica Lewinsky, quite frankly. I think he broke that barrier and we've been wounded ever since. I think the federal government's way too involved in people's business anyway, right? When they want to ban gas stoves nationwide, now they want to regulate your ceiling fans.

There's just way too many people up there thinking of these rules. We need to get the federal government to minimize its overwatch into people's personal lives, honestly, and what they have in their house and what they do in their own house. It's none of the federal government's business to be doing that.

Let the states take most of that responsibility. Eddie4Congress.com. E-D-D-Y, the number four, Congress.com. You can see it on your screen.
