The U.S. Supreme Court has just unilaterally rewritten federal civil rights law to change the definition of "sex" to "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" -- a move that dissenting Justice Samuel Alito has called a "brazen abuse" of the High Court's authority. What are the implications of this terrible decision, and whatever happened to that “conservative” Supreme Court? I’ll talk about that and more. Be sure to join us for Tuesday's JANET MEFFERD TODAY.

This archived broadcast of Janet for today is brought to you by Liberty health sheer liberty healthcare is a nonprofit healthcare sharing ministry that allows you to control and manage your own healthcare and choose any doctor or hospital in the nation. If your freedom loving American looking for contract free healthcare call now 855-585-4237 or go to liberty healthcare.org/GMT for more information liberty healthcare.org/GMT, our confidence is in Christ alone. Why is that disappointing. Yesterday's decision handed down by the Supreme Court is 63 decision in the case of Bob Stokley, Clinton County, Georgia. This actually was a consolidation of that funeral home case that alliance defending freedom has been working on Harris funeral homes and the man who would work there for a number of years and decided he wanted to dress as a woman in front of these clients who are having funerals for their loved ones in the funeral home business obviously said no. So that was one of the case is another one of the cases was bought stock and another one was art of the altitude express.

This was all about whether or not employers were discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation and/or gender identity, and good old justice Neil Gore.

Sage said he no title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 didn't probably mean sacks, but times change and now, let's just define sex as sexual orientation and gender identity, and keep in mind when you're going back to title VII in federal civil rights law concept of transgender is him they would've looked at us like we lost our minds and by the way, we have, they would have been completely justified in looking at us as if we had lost our minds.

They had no concept of somebody being a homosexual being something that the federal civil rights law audit talk about are protected. Are you kidding me 1964 I was even alive in 1964, but think back several decades. Nobody had any idea what was to come down the pike. As far as all of the gender insanity Gore such though it's fine. It's fine. This is what he wrote, in part, an individual's homosexuality, or transgender status is not relevant to employment decisions. It isn't what let me just stop for a moment when were talking about the funeral home case if you had a loved one die. That is a very stressful horrible time in your life and you're working on the funeral plans in your meeting with the funeral director and you're so preoccupied and overwhelmed and stressed out and in deep grief over the loss of your loved one and this guy and address walks up his help you not now. I know that's very judgmental and very horrible and very very very trans phobic if you want to buy into the language of the left which I don't but let's just be honest about this. That's what the consideration was of the funeral home. This is it fair to the clients. Let's not add any burdens to their already deep grief and have some kind of strange situation where someone who's obviously of the opposite sex to their attire is going to come up and potentially make things awkward and more stressful for them. Kind of common sense, right, no, no, no, I guess it's just discriminatory for this employer to do what he was trying to do, which was let let's not go this direction and that was just such a terrible case anyway.

At any rate, this is where we are. This is where we are and I really appreciated the way that Justice Samuel Alito addressed this in his dissent. He said there is only one word for what the court is done today.

Legislation now that's a key take away because we understand from our basic civics instruction back in school. I don't know how much of that they do these days. But back in our basic civics instruction in school history class we learned the three branches of American government. The executive branch, the legislative branch and the judicial branch and we understood and were taught properly, that those three branches of government were to present checks and balances. Why is that because if you give too much power to any one branch of government, you can quickly have a tyranny.

Now nobody could have foreseen where we are today.

That's another set of discussions, but but that's why we have it and we have a judiciary that is to interpret the law, the Congress makes the law so there are two different branches of government here when were talking about making in interpreting the law Supreme Court just kinda lost that memo. Somewhere along the way.

Starting really with Alberta fell. I suppose you could make the case that there are other times when the Supreme Court legislated from the bench in inappropriate ways and and they have had some very bad decisions.

There's no doubt about it. Delicious talk in the recent past. Yet, Anthony Kennedy, writing that opinion in Alberta fell. Oh yeah, it would G it would just be stripping people of their dignity if we didn't redefine marriage is to man or two women. And just like that.

32. Some states who had voted their their citizens had voted to protect marriage as between a man and a woman had all of their states rights nullified in one sweeping decision from the Supreme Court and I will tell you something.

To this day it makes me mad as a Christian and a righteous way that nobody essentially nobody fought back on that while the spring constants so I know I'm asking that question a lot these days.

Maybe you are too. I'm looking at a lot of what is going on in this country and asking where the good people standing up and in opposing it.

What why aren't any of the good people ever out in the street. I'm not for protesting in a violent way and I think that should be obvious. I don't want people looting and doing all the things that these leftists are doing in the streets of our cities. I don't want anybody setting up autonomous zones. I don't want any lawlessness. I don't want any anarchy, but I'm asking myself again and again and again. Why is it that the good people in this country will just sit in their homes and watch all of this happen and just sit there.

Just continue to sit there. I don't know if it's just you're so enthralled with Netflix or you're so tired from your long day.

I'm not meaning to judge the entire American population.

That's not my deal here, but I'm just wondering what is it that would get people up off their chairs and out into the streets or out in a peaceful protest.

I mean we do it for the March for life in January every year in Washington DC. Life in the cause of saving that the precious little lives of unborn babies is important enough to us that thousands and thousands of people show up for that where the marches for marriage where the marches for Christians who are being now having their rights stripped away, and this is the think what's going to happen now that you have taken the word sex and said it really just means sexual orientation and gender identity, even though we know darn well that they never had any concept of this kind of insanity.

Back in 1964 and there overlooking the fact that you have to take into account what was meant when the law was written as a tight white you are setting up a very scary scenario with this kind of activity for a number of reasons, but one of the reasons that comes to mind is, if you can just have a Supreme Court look at a statute and say well today that's not really what that means. Times changed were just to look upon that law and just put a modern spin on it, you know, you might as well shred all the laws just just got the laws and output them through a shredder get a big pair of scissors. Snip snip seven doesn't mean anything. Anyway, when we just wing it would just wing it and whoever has the most power on the Supreme Court will make the decision on how how law should actually be written in EN, even if it's written in a bad way to override it used overriding Congress doesn't even do that doesn't even do that they have to pass legislation. Remember end of the employment nondiscrimination act.

Barney Frank introduced that legislation every single year for about 20 years and every single time Congress was smart enough to say no.

Why did they say no, they said no because when you look at federal civil rights law you are protecting immutable qualities. That means qualities that people are born with that they can't help and they can't remove things like race things like sex your woman and you can't become a man or and you can't become a woman if you're a man and you cannot change your skin color and it is protecting you for your religious rights because that's protected under the First Amendment. That's why you have those categories in title VII there either immutable characteristics that are being protected or your First Amendment rights are being protected and Congress knew for years that sexual orientation and gender identity are inventive categories and they're not immutable and people go back and forth as far as their sexual expression. All of the time you have people who left homosexuality have people who were married who go into homosexuality of people who feel like a woman today and then later on they reverse the surgery.

We've seen this a million times and they rightly saw that this is opening the door to complete chaos.

Well today, you can look back on the decision of yesterday and say well we got our chaos. Now I guess we didn't have enough chaos from the Alberta fell decision. We've already seen some of the fallout from that against Christians like Jack Phillips get ready for more. What are the implications can be from this horrible horrible decision will be coming back getting into more detail on some of these dissents in particular you're listening to Jennifer today will be right back.

To donate, call 855402 baby 855402 baby or there's a banner to click@janetmetfor.com you're listening to Jonah's Medford years drove by, the Supreme Court has ruled that unelected officials and courts have the authority to redefine the law they can just bypass Congress. They are now the legislative branch apparently did. I mean it's kind of like the sex, sexual orientation and gender identity thing maybe interpreting the law is means making its PC.

Kinda like how sex means sexual orientation now and gender identity because Neil Gore said said so and had five bodies on the Supreme Court. He backed him up interpreting the law now means making it a Constitution, she monster to show why do we have to worry about what that old old document says and this is a guy put on the court by Pres. Trump as an alleged conservative and by the way, Brett Cavanaugh, who we know we defended to the hilt to try to squeal pull off the liberals from him when he was being under assault over the Christine blaze a Ford bogus allegations Brett Cavanaugh eroded dissent but I'm gonna tell you in a minute why the dissent actually turned out to be horrifying and to get to that in a minute but it's just incredible. Alito was the best one in this because he wrote a really good dissent. Here's part of what Justice Samuel Alito had to say in response to this decision, the court tries to convince readers that it is merely enforcing the terms of the statutes but that is preposterous. Even is understood today the concept of discrimination because of sex is different from discrimination because of sexual orientation or gender identity, and in any event, our duty is to interpret statutory terms to mean what they conveyed to reasonable people at the time they were written.

If every single living American had been surveyed in 1964. It would have been hard to find any who thought that discrimination because of sex meant discrimination because of sexual orientation, not to mention gender identity, a concept that was essentially on known at the time the court attempts to pass off its decision is the inevitable product of the textual's school of statutory interpretation championed by Arleigh Coley justice glia but no one should be fooled. The court's opinion is like a pirate ship it sales under a textual list flag, but what it actually represents is a theory of statutory interpretation, the justice glia excoriated the theory that courts should update old statutes so that they better reflect the current values of society.

While this is the essence of progressivism, everything that the head of us is better. We can't possibly learn from the past every day in every way were getting better and better and better. It's fantastic. We have six square blocks in Seattle hold off as an autonomous zone and they can't get their goods and services and so the putting up posters asking people to please send over clothing and blankets is a great system great anti-capitalist system you got going there and the left is all for it their all for its and you have violence in the streets, any of the Wendy's being set on fire in Atlanta over this cop on matter with shooting this man I'm gonna get to that in a couple of minutes. The left sign that they're fine with the chaos they love chaos. The problem is not enough.

Americans stop and say to themselves what happens if the chaos more they can ado I said recently on social media people need to remember that the Soviet Union was all for police communist love police once they're in power, so it might start out as a revolution and it might start out as some sort of anarchist movements, but they love the cops as long as there they are cops and boy you've never seen cops with more power than the cops that are under the communists in the old Soviet Union and the Communist bloc in places like North Korea. Places like China, places like Cuba and you wonder why so many people fled as fast as they could from some of those nations to come to the United States and are weeping their eyes out watching what the United States is becoming. It's incredible. It's an assault from every side and I guess a lot of Christians probably are looking at this and saying to themselves Lord why is this happening just like I was discussing recently with the book of Habakkuk with him, pleading with the Lord, why are you letting these Chaldeans do with her doing Lord why why why he says on using them as an instrument of judgment, and he says the Lord in wrath remember mercy. Boy are we there now currently we are there now it's on every side the pandemic. They had some screenshot on social media were on one hand you had a meal everybody criticizing the Lake of the Ozarks gather. Remember that the Lake of the Ozarks pool party and everybody was in the water and the leftist media was going crazy. All these people are socially distancing. This is horrible and there to make everybody sick and eroded die and then you turn around look, it's the black trans matter rally in New York. Look at all these wonderful tens of thousands of people gathering together to stand up for black trans lives.

Wait a minute, what am I missing here is so it's terrible when people just want to go swimming. That's diabolical. But if people mark for March for black trans lives, then it's wonderful and if you have Jews wanting to get together in New York at their synagogues to have their services. De Blasio clamps down on them like a dictator but if you have black trans lives, rallies, and it's perfectly fine of looters and sign riders.

It's fine. Not a problem but mean the bloom is off the rose on that charade.

We arty know that that's bogus, but I want I want to go back to this decision yesterday.

The bus decision because it will have terrible invocations. We don't completely know yet what the implications will be, but if they have just ruled that you can't discriminate based on sexual orientation and gender identity than what in the world would stop them from forcing Christian schools to hire transgender's now you had some kind of a blanket statement here from course at all will know I mean you worry about it you know's religious liberty.

Yet, you know, religious liberty is gonna be part of it and you really have to worry about this because we care about religious liberty is what he says. For example, the employer's fear that complying with title VII's requirement. In cases like ours, may require some employers to violate their religious convictions. We are also deeply concerned with preserving the promise of the free exercise of religion enshrined in our Constitution all really corsets, because if you were concerned about that you would understand how you just undid it and I think I would be proven right on the road about that that guarantee lies at the heart of our pluralistic society will did you know that in the equality at the gay activists want to remove any sort of religious exemptions. Did you know that justice corsets the alleged conservative but worries about height.

How title VII may intersect with religious liberties are nothing new.

They even predate the statutes passage as a result of its deliberations and adopting the law Congress included an express statutory exception for religious organizations while fine and dandy justice corsets, but have you been paying attention to the culture war in the last several years is a never ends with a religious exemption ever because that's not what these activists want these activists want total control.

They want to stamp out the church. They want to stamp out Christianity. I'm not seen her hauling us off to gulags or anything like that but they want the moral influence of the church completely snuffed out. Don't kid yourself I been following this movement intensely every single day for the last 11 years, and I know what these people are capable of and I know what their trajectory is and I know exactly where it's going and so today at for him to try to act like oh roofer operates as a kinda super statute, displacing the normal operation of other federal laws that might supersede title VII's commands in appropriate cases alone K so the religious Freedom restoration act might supersede title VII's commands in appropriate cases, but how are these doctrines protecting religious liberty and interacting with title VII questions for future cases to amine. It's kinda like this ridiculous know you know don't worry everything is gonna be fun. Well, count me skeptical. Color me skeptical that it's gonna be fine that Cavanaugh was mentioning the Cavanaugh dissent in this case Alito's dissent was actually very good. In this case, the Cavanaugh didn't give me any confidence. He says in his dissent, like many cases in this court.

This case boils down to one fundamental question who decides I'm sorry what the case does not boil down to one fundamental question. You know if you have a fundamental question in this case by Cavanaugh.

Here's your fundamental question.

What in the world is sexual orientation and gender identity. I know what it means.

I know how people use the terminology I'm saying it's meaningless.

It's made up it's a recent invention and you guys are trying to codify it as if it's on par with race, sex and religion.

I don't know. Maybe the fundamental question needs to be. Why is the Supreme Court so insane. Maybe that's the question that it all boils down to it seems to me reading through some of these dissents in the decision that that really is the appropriate question Cavanaugh does acknowledge that title VII does not prohibit employment discrimination because of sexual orientation, but his whole thing is that's not our place, it has to be done by Congress right that is a fair point, but then you get to the end and here's what he says to face and ask yourself if he would ever speak this way to conservative Christians.

I don't know maybe somewhere he has written something like this about Christians. But somehow I doubt it.

This spread Cavanaugh. Notwithstanding my concerned about the court's transgression of the Constitution's separation of powers it is appropriate to acknowledge the important victory achieved today by gay and lesbian Americans. Millions of gay and lesbian Americans have worked hard for many decades to achieve equal treatment in fact and law. They've exhibited extraordinary vision, tenacity and grit battling often steep odds and the legislative and judicial arenas.

Not to mention in their daily lives they've advanced powerful policy arguments and can take pride in today's result conservative to you doesn't to me it sounds like this guy is just kind of falling all over himself even made references elsewhere because judges interpret the law as written, not as they might wish it were written the first tenuous Courts of Appeals to consider whether title VII prohibits sexual orientation discrimination all said no. So you like that little caveat judges interpreted the law correctly but he really wanted you to be dear friends, that's what I'm taking away from what brought Cavanaugh had to say and I'm thinking I get a C may be because you wrote a dissenting you didn't go the wrong way on this case but you know you really didn't have to do the pom-pom retained to big day at the end of it. Did you again this is just an indication of where he and his mind is an and somebody was pointing a lot of people were actually pointing out when the corsets was was no nominated for the Supreme Court, and later confirmed we talked about this at the time and I said Neil corsets coastal liberal church he he he went to, and I assume he still goes there while he wouldn't go there now you regularly because he's in Washington but St. John's Episcopal Church in Boulder, Colorado, and the pastor of this is that the time in 2017 was Susan Springer who after Donald Trump's election to the White House that had some interesting things to say. You know will take a break will come right back you listening to Jennifer today.

Here's your host Joe well what a rotten decision of the Supreme Court yesterday to allege conservatives signed on. Just as Neil Gore said to Trump appointee wrote the opinion in the case of the Boston case saying that despite the fact that title VII has no protections under federal civil rights law for sexual orientation or gender identity. The speak, which is can recognize it is that even though that's not what is in the wording of title VII and it wasn't the intent of the people who wrote title VII and even though it is the purview of Congress to pass laws, Allah, and which failed every single year for about 20 years, because Congress was smart enough to know what a rotten piece of legislation. It was just stepped in and did a forum because I guess now when you have the duty to interpret the law.

It actually means to make it it make the line I need a really it's just words on a page. After all, folks. Just words on a page and we live in an evolving society where progressive society.

We need to move and change and thrive in things earth it were were were that better-than-average were better-than-average and were better than ever. That's for sure. Some Supreme Court of conservatives say main. This is really the point I was making the point before we went to the break that back at the time Neil Gore such as name was the minute I said this is not can it be good on the gay issue.

There's no way church militant reported this back at the time report suggest Neil Gore such attends a notably liberal and LGBT friendly church. The Episcopal diocese of Colorado is confirming the course which attends St. John's Episcopal Church in Boulder Colorado.

The pastor while I should say pastor X Susan Springer said this after Donald Trump's election to the White House. This is what she wrote.

We've endured a year of the tree all in division.

We have watched the steady erosion of decency and respectful public discourse. Yesterday, a milestone was passed and now today we have an opportunity we have a decision to make about whether with or not we will watch in horror, and dismay or roll up our sleeves and offer ourselves as examples of a different way of relating and living after the Orlando massacre at a gay nightclub in 2016 were 49 people died. St. John's decided to ring its church bells every Wednesday from July 6 to the election on November 8 is a way of advocating for stricter gun control and they said in a Facebook post.

We hope the ringing compels our elected lawmakers to hear and remember their solemn duty to both the living and the dead to stop political posturing and work together to pass legislation that fosters greater safety, so is anybody really surprised. That's the church that you freely attend.

You really think you're going to be in on the next glia. It's just so disappointing. Here I am fully admitting this went when conservatives were initially defending president Trump and there is a lot to defend him on when it comes to religious liberty protections in the pro-life issue. One of the biggest ones has been but look what he's done in the courts and he made some good appointments in the courts. He's made a lot of appointments to different courts and I'm sure a lot of those will turn out to be good appointments but making it any better. It's not making it any better Dana Horwitz over conservative review actually has a terrific piece and heat. He's so solid. But he said conservatives get massacred by fake conservatives. Scotus and it's not just in this case either. He said within 35 minutes at 10 AM Eastern yesterday what some thought was the most conservative Supreme Court of all time concocted a fundamental right to transgender is him in the context of labor law, a race the Second Amendment and interfered with the state death penalty case but declined to interfere with the California law that criminalizes law enforcement cooperation with federal immigration agents taken in totality, the conservative legal movement which is promoted the idea of appointing better judges, rather than fighting the entire concept of judicial supremacy is him has failed miserably. This was its Waterloo, I agree with them. The judicial supremacy is him is the issue that really has to be fight but fought and won. Now on the issue of police I want to shift a little bit because I want to talk about this and want to be sure to get the sin. As you know there has been a lot of upheaval over the issue of defining police, which is completely insane and I think that goes without saying, and you have a news busters piece here. That said, ABC, CBS and NBC have been turning out all his coverage of the protests of your column that over the last couple weeks, but the same networks have spent almost no airtime letting viewers know about the injuries and deaths that have been inflicted on police officers during these couple weeks of social unrest, and as of June 9, for example, not a single protest related incidents of violence against police has received more than 40 seconds on any of the networks disgraceful but not surprising while a peace came out that I really appreciated it and it was from a man by the name of Travis Yates. You might have seen is he's a Tulsa Oklahoma police major and he wrote piece over@lawofficer.com and it was just a piece from the heart, I want to read it because I think it's so good you need to hear it that they're talking about and getting rid of the cops there gonna do this in Minneapolis.

I predict it's in the last about two weeks maybe. And then people come to their senses or the entire intelligent population of Minneapolis will have fled and just leave the rest the people to their insanity is what Travis Yates says this is the hardest thing I've written. I grew up in a law enforcement family.

My father worked his way up to the rank of captain at the Fort Smith Arkansas Police Department as a kid I remember going with them on Friday to pick up his check and I was in awe of the superheroes who worked around it were funny and fun to be around. My dad sacrificed a lot and so did my late mother.

Whether was the weeklong surveillance or wiretap or chasing drug runners. He gave it his all for my family and worked plenty of extra details to never let our family be without some would call that privilege. But where I grew up it was called hard work. The kids at school thought it was cool what my dad did and when he sometimes asked me if anyone gave me a hard time. They never did. There was a respect among all. Even the kids in shop class. I didn't grow up wanting to be a cop but one fateful night as a freshman in college.

That all changed. I went on a ride along, and my life's journey would never be the same after four years of college. I dad wanted me in an agency that respected that education so I moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma at 21 and never look back. I didn't know anyone. All I knew was what I saw my dad do is a lot of other cops working hard as well and doing all they could to keep the community safe 27 years have passed and you would've told me the condition of law enforcement.

Today I would never believed you.

It's not the law enforcement is change for the worse but everything around it has the mentally ill used to get treatment and now they just send cops kids used to be taught respect. Now it's cool to be disrespectful.

Supervisors used to back you when you were right, but now they accuse you of being wrong in order to appease crazy people.

Parents used to get mad at their kids for getting arrested and now they get mad at us media used to highlight the positive contribution. Our profession gave to society and now they either ignore it or twist the truth for controversy to line their own pockets. These to be a common respect among criminals if they got caught.

They understood you in a job to do, but now it's our fault. They said in handcuffs rather than their own personal decisions.

If someone attacked the cop they were seen as such.

Now we Marta them and sue for millions with all this talk about racism and racist cops I've never seen people treated differently because of their race, and while I know that cowards that have never done this job will call me racist for saying it. All I've ever seen was criminal behavior and cops trying to stop it and give a rip what their skin color was icing cops help and save any type of race, gender or ethnicity you can think of.

And while that used to mean something. No one cares anymore. I'm called every name you can think of and many of them with racial overtones, and it's never come from cops. I watched African-American cops take the brunt of this and even talked one rookie out of quitting after he was berated by a lot of cowards that had the same skin color is him. I've heard words I never heard before being a cop in the police officers are insulted and don't retaliate. They just take it. Despite that, it's been the greatest opportunity of my life to do this job I would've recommended it to anyone.

But today all of that is over, I wouldn't wish this job on my worst enemy.

I would never send anyone I cared about into this profession and what it's become. It's the only job you can do everything right and lose everything. She only job where the same citizens you risk your life or hate you for it.

The only segment left in society where it's cool to discriminate and judge just because of the uniform you where you never get to explain you can never reason with them.

The nasty words have now turned into rocks and bottles and gunfire. I watched it happen to those around me and I've seen the total destruction of their life.

This job is a walking time bomb and you could get canceled or prosecuted on the very next call. Even if you do everything right and profession is to deal with that doctors kill 250,000 people a year and they call the medical mistakes because the siding understands that they do a very difficult job under high stress and they must make the best possible decision in the moment law enforcement is test with the same and were highly successful 96% are attacking us with weapons and all but a few others are attacking us with the cars of their fists and more and more with simulated guns so Benjamin Crum can help their family win the lottery and yet less than a thousand suspects are killed a year there's more will possible come back you listening to Jennifer today stayed with us. Hi this is Kirk Cameron and I am honored to be partnering with the Ministry of pre-born to help moms choose life actor Kirk Cameron supports pre-born.

My four oldest children were adopted.

That is because of caring and compassionate people who help those young mothers choose life. My wife is an adopted child and her birth mother chose life for her if it weren't for those caring individuals that help those young moms of value. The sacredness of life.

I wouldn't have my wife I wouldn't have my four adopted children, and the two natural born children that we have wouldn't exist either.

Joe tells Oklahoma police Maj. Travis Yates wrote a great piece over@lawofficer.com talking about how he just can't take it anymore as a cop. He's got an article@lawofficer.com called America. We are leaving picking up where we left off. He talked about the fact that, despite the fact we had the most violent society we've ever seen less than a thousand suspects are killed a year and most are attacking the police with weapons icing cops risk their own lives when they shouldn't have just to keep from taking one they never get the credit that other professions get cowards are all around us from Chiefs to sheriffs to politicians. No one has our back. Now the little we have. We are told they are going to defund us or even abolish us citizens with a political agenda will reign over us and all you have to do is wake up and put on a uniform to be a racist received death threats for just doing my job.

It would've been outrageous. A decade ago and made national news. That's just Monday there will be more threats, more accusations of racism or lies told about us is to talk cops out of leaving the job.

Now I'm encouraging them it's over America. You finally get it. You are going to have to abolish the police we won't be around for it. And while I know most Americans still appreciate us. It's not enough and the risk is too high. Those of you that say thank you or by the occasional meal. It means everything, but those of you that were silent while the slow turning of the knives in our backs happen by thugs and cowards. This is on you. Your belief in hashtags and memes over the truth has and will create an environment in your community that you will never expect if you think Minneapolis will turn into Mogadishu and that is far from you. It's coming and when it does remember what your complicity did this is the America that you made good article good article he was on recently on Fox News and wanted to play a little bit of what he had to say. Summarizing his thoughts this is cut five Railroad money not wait, and it was almost like dolls with wrote it because he just flowed to its and also know that I wasn't sure a lot. I uploaded all murder.

The very next morning as we always think about and proceeded down the rest is history, but I think I was pulling the emotions from all around the country. What you're feeling, very much so were the silent majority officers are afraid to speak out there afraid to talk to start your schedule your next call waste be canceled or destroyed and so officers will very limited. Nothing citizens do too and we had just many citizens a comment on the article and soon as you which is great but what is the effect here goes on. This is major Yates cut six euros version was a tough time for us as everybody knows of Baltimore's ration myself. No evidence of wrongdoing version of the narrative is quite different. Morale would really low during that time. And came out of a resurgence in recent years. In this adjustment of status is first talk about and every department every else you talk to you smoke you leave some of the most Families I got a job we all fall short of the most the office with 10 to 15 years.

August Cantley labia heard from hundreds of people that are so discouraging will either love the job Dr. love the community love people, but all of this chaos is just wearing all members will think about the implications if you begin to see the disbanding of police departments that's complete anarchy. I and there's part of me that says how in the world with that every tolerated most the people in the United States not to the point where they would buy into this insanity, but can you blame them.

I can't blame him. And what about this whole situation with what happened in Atlanta. It's terrible. Dan Longino actually had a very good point to make on this issue of what happened with Ryszard Brooks and the shooting that occurred there than the Wendy's was torched. I mean everybody's been seen this on the news, but he gave a little perspective, you know about this issue where you had Brooks pointing along Taser at the officer.

What should a cop do in that situation, then this is what he had to say this is cut three.

If you're pretending this is a black-and-white use of force scenario officer was bad and the subject was was good in some respects that are really sorry, but you should refrain from commenting because that's not at all what happened here It's a tragedy. The man died. Nobody wants that we should be clear on that. Nobody hardly put boxes on this to what you want to go to of course not don't be stupid. Don't talk like that so that's that's not helping, but we live in a time when the temperatures never coming down at all and it doesn't come down in our culture and our society because people want to inflame the situation rather look at reasonably your police officer trained in the use of force continuum. What do you do you have a man alleged to be intoxicated was behind the wheel of a car blocking window in the Wendy's. Wendy's call Steve.

These officers didn't show up because they have nothing to do even show up because they wanted a burger. They showed up because the Wendy's call the police. Do you just not show off okay showing up demand takes a breathalyzer. It's alleged I don't have the bricks alleged the man was drunk what you do you let them get back behind the wheel. Okay obviously not the rest of the man doesn't want to be arrested. He violently attacked the police officer on video what you do now let them breathe us not into your death. Take your gun and shoot you takes your treasure runs away. He then proceeded Taser pointed in your face and discharge it.

What are you doing you just let them go. I don't understand what people were inflaming rather than trying to help the situation. Why these officers to do here. My don't think it goes that far. I don't think you're talking about people who are really looking at it logically its emotional everybody's in a heightened state, everybody's marching, everybody's writing, everybody's in a in on all this mob action and we all know what happens when you get into a mob mentality is no logical reason going on. It's just pure rage. Now, what would he have done is a police officer in this situation, this is Dan Longino again on Fox cut for running away is is candidly irrelevant on this running away when you're not a threat don't have a weapon. There's no evidence. You had a weapon is 16 running away when you violently attack the police officer stole one of his weapons and discharge the weapon at the police officer is an entirely different scenario.

There's a lot of confusion out there and it really candidly bothers me when people talk about this and don't understand basic use of force rules. The use of force rules do not dictate anywhere that there has to be a deadly threat to someone else to be a threat of serious physical injury or death for you to use deadly force police officer who was witnessing someone attacking someone else with a batter firing a Taser in their face doesn't have to say. Well I have to use equal amount of force me to have to get my dad or I have to hit them with my Taser.

That's not the way. Use of force works. I know it's uncomfortable for people to hear what would I do candidly, not much different that I don't want to know a lot of people so I guess we could maybe maybe you could've shot him in the legs. That's not how police officers are trained. That is not how you were trying to stop a scenario with their farms are not trained to kill is a myth. There trying to stop and when you fire your weapon, God forbid you fire at center mass because you have the most likelihood of engaging with the tardiness and artist and not someone else in the parking lot in all the Monday morning quarterbacks your face still was not to explain what they would do when someone turns around violently attack pointed a weapon in your face at point-blank range of explain what their religious give-and-take and take the things around to the face. Some of the commentary here is to the juvenile. It is now. I think one of the biggest takeaways though from the entire exchange I think was great that he made those comments because it is helpful for those of us were not in law enforcement to hear about how police are trained and what they're supposed to do in certain situations and if a lot of us are just calm down and listen to this, we would all be better off. But as he pointed out the temperatures never coming down. What he mean by that what he meant by that is, no matter what you do, no matter how much appeasement you offer, no matter how many times you get down on your knees and bow before your overlords.

However, they happen to be whoever is in front of you demanding that as we've seen so many pictures to that effect in the last several weeks the temperatures not come down and you know that's the same scenario that I would apply to the bus duct decision which was handed down yesterday by the US Supreme Court. The temperatures not coming down.

If you think this is interesting.

I've had people say will after the Oberg file decision.

I figured it'd all be over and is terrible. You can't redefine marriage but at least then I'll be happy and they'll go away and I laughed a very ironic laugh is a union of gay activists you don't understand at all. There's no moving the goalpost to a point where the goalpost will stay forever.

The goalposts continually move because that's their game that's left. You know why. And that's how people act when they don't know what the endgame is other than destroying everything destroy the family destroy society destroy capitalism destroy freedom destroy the Constitution destroy Christianity. What comes after the destruction hopefully the return of the Lord Jesus Christ and I know a lot of us are thinking like that. But there's a part of me that says I don't want to give up yet. I don't want to sacrifice my country. To these dogs. I don't want this to be the way that it ends because I've kids and someday I may have grandkids and it's not enough for me to stand by as an American citizen in a Christian and look at all of this and say is good. Turn it off and go back to my Netflix on have Netflix. How could I do that, but you get my point. We can't just sit in our easy chairs when our country is on fire and we understand why is it all happening.

The Lord is allowing this to happen, but in his wrath. The Lord also remembers mercy.

If these people who are called by his name, will humble themselves and pray and seek his face and he will turn from heaven right have we forgotten that verse.

Have we forgotten how merciful our Lord and Savior is to those who turn to him in faith and repentance and plead with him to intervene for this nation that he is blessed beyond description get on her knees today and back and forth to do it for me will see next time here and Janet never today
