Hello this is Matt slick from the match look like podcast right defend the Christian faith and lay out our foundation of the truth of God's word chosen Truth Network podcast starting in just a few seconds. Enjoy it, share it, but most of all, thank you for listening and for choosing The Truth Podcast Network. This is the Truth Network get ready. It's one of America's most important, influential, respected voices on cultural and political issues and apologist Christian political advocate and author.
Here is the founder and chairman of the America foundation, Dr. Chris will today. Today my nightmare that I am thankful for what would you folks were talking about midterm election. Election year is what election year brought.
I know we always get the most important election ever. This one really is very very important. My guest today is on the front line fighting the battle. Each and every day to elect Christian conservative godly men and women at the public office, and he done a great job in the path he is a former national national faith engagement director for the Republican national committee and he now has his own company called Mordechai strategy Mike in case somebody not hear you when you are with the class you mind taking a few minutes to just try serving people your background who you are and what you're doing yet naturally they found me on again. Christmas is great and I got to be a part of your first week of of of doing that broadcast so I monitor the back like I must've done a good job the first time so your family back and appreciated.
So I am what what many people, movement conservative, Christian evangelical Christian first and foremost, and because of that.
It informs my politics and my career track is on the political got and when I first got involved in politics. What I really want to be with salt and light wherever I went and you think I was clearly a Democrat right to help in this. The party needs that need to hear the gospel just as much is is is anybody.
And again I wanted I want to do my work in and in a in a godly manner way that glorifies him and do I fall short short or actually before I went to the RNC years ago I worked for some groups that that I think no. I had Josh let family research Council for that I had. I work for Beverly and Ken LaHaye consuming from Eric around there pack. I worked with the empty left. I would like to joke that I I broke the glass ceiling for that was the first guy that they never hired so I'm not around then and then was an opportunity in 2013 come to that of the RNC in an in and work with are what we call our strategic partnership books who have an affinity toward the platform who who are probably gonna vote for Republicans primarily and in so the problem was in 2013 the last two elections in a row and consumers really getting fed up with party and so I was one of those guys and so I got tired of hearing about 1/3 party and feel like, well, we did 1/3 party, never seen any in electoral success again in my lifetime. So what can I do and so I came over and I was sure I would last eight months, let alone eight years and been a great and fantastic education.
You know it is easy to have people say well you know you're going to the establishment you're going to where all the rhinos live.
I wish it was that simple either his or long exposure are a great people are beginning of their careers are often taught as an RNC employee you know you'll have your job is to elect Republican as they have and are bothering your job is to help them get elected and so I always go back on on the folks I'm talking with and say that's the truth and it is. I've seen it happen in our job out in the district and the local level is to bring Republican party candidates who are to reflect the value and I think that's where I am. My my claim now is that of come out and started Mordechai strategy. I am unapologetically Christian.
The believer in Jesus Christ and so you if you're a candidate for Congress or for US Sen. Gov. if you hire me, you understand that I would have your back, your believer and have your back letter to tell you you need to tone down your rhetoric or things like that you know to save me. What you're saying is guys like probably not. I want to message you too much longer consultant out there badly. You know believes he has about a bike and so II just come out of an alternative and then it's been pretty busy here you something since you worked in the builders race in Virginia and that was nice that y'all were not supposed to win no way of the world and God just use your team in a mighty mighty way.
Cheryl: we got a great cruise to govern Virginia now absolutely I had my first client I was younger and was running for governor and what they wanted was somebody to come in and really talk to the faith community and in an antenna build the space coalition for them and so that's what we did. Week one of a person who started was a protocol and and you not had candidates all cross-country taught me about doing the same things and and that the heartland is the great thing about Gov. Duncan is that he believed it right.
This wasn't coming. He was gonna do it.
Regardless, you need to have to have some to come and help them do it. He was already doing it.
So all of a sudden now after the big win kids all over the country of top commands a day. Can you help me start this protocol will you will you be a part of it.
Now when I can and things like that and so, the hurdle Glenn Young can really live that out… They thousand and if you know anything about them. Help found the church basement of his home and then and then help fund the building.
He has been think I believe is on the board and early been a donor of the Bible Museum minister says that the bona fide and in so anyway so that was a first big win for my little one man company and have been pretty excited about. I think he really didn't get elected you and I both work in the political world for many years and it frustrates me when I see candidates usually leave my good record. The Christian vote in acts like the Christian with the Bishop and Mercury like like the big family Bible knowing and you can tell it's never been opened yet you walk did not read at your Christian window at a Christian event that will donate the thing about never yanking the well did you say the real deal. I nationwide will almost always made by the Gov. Yunker's inauguration as an avid you won't believe it is not yet anybody here to play at the end of regulation of the weight of it even have anybody ultrabright disease doing it right yet they gathered the family and leaders in and held in the governor himself little prayer. It wasn't some prescriptive thing that he was reading it was wrong. The heart and I don't think you mommy share this in a different amount of looking at Byron Fox, the Vandals in an Virginia buyer works a lot with an organization called faith will affect only what is this true or rent space. When the environment from around the catchy song to get clinicians to register the voting churches to hold voter registration drive the they did a tremendous effort. There is a matter of fact they registered. I don't remember but the number of voters are registered with more than the winning numbers for governor, yanking his race so they feel like they have work to do without my getting Christians register to vote anyway. Byron's wife was very very sick with Copan almost died, and Gov. Young can himself on more than one occasion I called that one time in particular called to check on Byron Fox, his wife and asked if he could speak to her and he prayed for her and with and and Mike. I don't know that I've ever heard. Not now. Shortly there are plenty of Christians in public office, but I'm sure others have done that but I mean this man was governor nail if he wasn't the real deal. He didn't have to fool around with Firefox or light beer to grade you. Anybody else an election and hearing took time away from being governor is not what I'm doing. And prayer is the most important thing that I can do right now with this lady and called him, prayed work. What a powerful multi-that isn't in my shell did not not just the governor's race. We have a Christian Lt. Gov. in Virginia endocrine Secretary of State in Yalta to stay with serious serious problem liberals and really infiltrated because a lot of the liberal DC establishment lives right there in Virginia dropped the world. All of them from their homes in Virginia to DC and Yom Kippur very liberal state.
Really, clean house on the ballot and put a lot of Christians in the public office, and I'm just so thankful you did. Because the influence that Virginia had powerful across the country and youngest successful and I thank you so much what you and your team and your volunteer work we did like godly men and women. When consumers become a rock star in the conservative movement now as well decided and Miraz, who is the Atty. Gen. It was a real trifecta. You know it's funny because a lot of these political types of the company was with each other. They don't often like each other and this was as follows rare times when I've probably be famous. Whether we over the reactor failed or not this was a fantastic and very fun campaign to be on and like I say Glenn Yunker made it easy made it very easy.
The open meeting with little pretty accurate.
He certainly did that on the campaign unit 100, do what I been doing every morning you know for a writing, years 30 years or whatever is different when I'm governor, start my day with prayer at the pretty little bar in some respects, which shows you just how hellish that the state of affairs are nationwide and why and why having a believer in in in a governorship as influential as Virginia is so critical and so important and you walk the walk and talk and talk, you know, one of things that again. I know what were talking about this because I think it important to have good models for for politician, especially Christian politicians and gay after day after the election we were at a food bank that was how we kind of celebrated he was there.
We all know we are all very excited that we are we are packing up lunches for for schoolchildren and again at the testament to a man's heart and I appreciate that a true leaders that also.

See firsthand what the Bible took place touring Israel with Dr. Chris Hughes is a travel honesty like citizens funding foundation.com and get ready for an unforgettable trip last a lifetime time creating a relationship I'd like to invite friends hearing is in line joint American withdrawal from her father. The American space program died this day. June 16, 1977 he developed the famed V2 rocket for Germany before emigrating to the US where in 1958 launched America's first satellite. He became the director of NASA US guided missile program and found that the national space Institute's name was Warner Von Braun, who stated the laws of nature that enable us to fly to the moon also enables to destroy our home planet. The guidelines of what we ought to do are furnished in the moral law of God is American federalism for free transcripts: commemorative 1888 yesterday is my ears like Mordechai strategies like you, I mean, I know you're there losers here one is ready, laughing because you know you you you cut outside sidebar was well. I know I know I do.
Where you got that a lot of people don't. A lot of people do a lot of my colleague who are not of any faith at all. You scratch your head and said you do that and when I fainted in the Mordechai is found in the book of Esther and was what I would call a political advisor to two Esther and he was the man behind the scene he he he had a strong faith in God. He understood what God was going to do and invited Esther to 22 show up. Be bold and you know for such a time as that. And so Mordechai has always been one of my favorite biblical characters. I often joke with my Jewish friend that if he was Catholic.
Mordechai would probably be the patron saint or political consultant I would usually radiate future tricks to initiate. They think they don't often laugh at that, but a lot of my Jewish friends that have been very educated in the chamber for the same reasons that you are not in life it Mordechai well for me reflects my my my my values reflect my space and you know it's it's it's it's a nod to a very, very important person in in the Old Testament will think it might be a good blog holding you will be likely shooting associate degrees using building or whatever and you're showing this is about like using God in the Bible did what I am hoping to do the voice behind the power and also commend you for thank you so much so I'll stall long enough, less jumping people want to listen for you today all year a working racing across the country.
There are a lot of important dates and important racism also want you can give us a feel for the landscape of what you look for in 2022. Absolutely I guess is what we call a target rich environment. If you are a conservative and Republican. I think you know since the election of Joe Biden and just all the disastrous things that happen from inflation to watching gas prices go sky high. I think were good, or worse, to the housing market softened both are very pretty disgruntled and we would you didn't take into tea leaves to figure this out. I mean this midterm elections going to be very rare, critical is the most important is it the most important right now that's that's for sure. And and so normally when you're looking at races and I'm, I'm a campaign junkie, you know, for fun, if I'm an accountant and and there's a candidate that I care about out. I'll go next door to the order volunteers just love I just love your contact. I enjoy talking to people and I don't necessarily get no thousand dollars in our but I get it done and it gives me a feel for the district and what people are thinking and in right now if you go to a door anywhere in America whether there Republican independent and even some some soft Democrat they're not happy with with the direction of the country and with all that you know normally normally I'd be looking at maybe 40 congressional seat that that might be in play. I I I daresay 70 maybe there's a there's a tool that I use. You know it's it's not perfect because I don't with correct choices. You don't always have access to polling like you do with pikes and erasers and things like that, you got it, do, a man on the ground have a thing which is why you know I'm always on the phone talk to somebody in a distracting hey what's going on with this unit we just had a rally. We had we had 25 people at okay.
That tells me doubly many, if not as strong as you think it is better but you know the rally like no-trump, no-trump, you know he has a rally and he still commands 10,000 people. Okay, that specialization was busy as like that so so I'm I'm I'm looking at about 70 feet that the tool user is a website called cook political.com, which is the cook report and basically they have a paid site but there's there's a freebie area and they do their Congressional and Senate and Gov.'s rating and anybody could go to that and and look to see what I'm looking at and that is okay, so here's repaired all the races are pops up all the races are leaning Democrat hears alterations that are leaning reply Republican and about the columns of the end of the likely Republican the likely Democrat and I would tell you normally normally year. I'm not even a look at either of those two call the last columns of the likely Republican likely Democrat. I'm not sure if you follow the understanding but because of – environment I'm almost I'm almost putting those likely Republican safety. There might be some anomalies regulation folks who are at the personal baggage that have just come up. You know, come to fruition. People are hearing about the first time, but those likely Democrat were logical. Most people would normally say there to be fine. I would say they are in play and and so I guess that is the target rich environment with with just Democrat talk sexy. There are 24 races that we've already considered better processes like or five that are Democrat feet were already saying you think we think Republicans get away makes no other axiom that the likely Republican column. Anyway, I'm getting in the week here so much. I'm not sure everybody's following but you saying the speech now not saying that I not saying I don't I don't I don't go out on a limb like that. I say I'd say so. I I'd say there's about 70 seats in a competitive they're going to be competitive, especially if it continues.
Environment Doran continues to happen.
Oh and by the way, you know, when Roe V Wade is overturned and I believe it's going to be overturned. I figured initiate excitement on both sides, but I daresay that conservatives are or are going to be very motivated and so all that you mix it up and I look at that between 50 and 70 that are in play and you know I had to go to lamb before Labor Day, but I'd say at least 35 seats that I think the Republicans will pick up in the land Monday the third and probably maintain most of what they have to yes correct correct. Are there any but are there any bigger, more for you and your when you converse with a limited most people never heard of him and deliver some of the bigger players we feel that it is all about under any of the bigger names that you think might be in trouble this year or have a big raise on her hand on goodness while sure in Colorado, not Colorado. I did most people consider that while the Virginia the Western and a set if anybody knows Virginia and they knew it was trending very rare purple. If not, if not Democrat blue while in Colorado, the same way and were looking at the possibility of the Senate, sleeping in play were looking at 2Q seats that normally should should be on the Democrat side as being considered either a tossup work baby leaning, leaning Democrat, and I again I think if you physically fell victim leaning column I would I'm to go on a limb and say should be in a tossup, but I'm so Nevada Nevada is another great example for you got you got a black salt who will be facing AAA primary in in in in in a couple weeks. I suspect that he will probably most likely when the primary. Having said that, it certainly looks like the environment is such that whoever the Republican is not U.S. Senate race will have the inside track to to knock off a Democrat but tell the whole story because there are no 3 feet Nevada congressional seat that are are held by Democrat and they are now in play.
If they're not there not concepts they are they are. You know, leaning, leaning Democrat so these are very, very competitive, but you're probably not can ever be able to defeat electorally.
Nancy Pelosi, I certainly think that were to fire Nancy Pelosi, but by the end of this campaign would take her out. AOC Congressman AOC Alton, New York, probably not a replacer with with a conservative but facilities in other states and other seats where they're not household names but they. A progressive Democrat or a bid in in Congress for many many years there not not sitting pretty like they have in the past year. Both were talking to Mike Mears is giving us a great layout what you want to share with us reason to want one this year so was great. Thinking states.

My strategies is to Christian will publican or political strategy in the EE work all over the country and he's got a great deal for what's going to happen in this 2022 election year. We just all important process conservative Christians to be educated on the issues know who the candidates are all across the country and and will find out how we can get engaged to Mike before the break you mentioned in passing, AOC inhabits one we won't be interesting.
AOC is part of a very liberal left wing of Grupo socialist even in the Democrat party and there's a group within the Democratic Party that is targeting Democrat. They don't consider to be liberal enough and they are knocking them off in the primaries and that's exactly how AOC one. She can't remember saying she ran against catalog number two or three under Nancy Pelosi. Very powerful congressman from New York and but he wasn't as livable as the very new left-wing progressive social really communist in my opinion people were saying they targeted and they started with him and they did almost like a casting call Mike Broder story. Her brothers information was like they were looking for an actor to play lead in a movie and they were interviewing people to find people to run for office and she beat him. Is there any kind of strategy with in the conservative wing whether just the conservative Republicans will Christian to go after and and you may not want to address is that your business but I will say that you're doing it but if you hurt if there's any movement because there are certainly some rhinos are Republican in name only, is what rhino stands for the Republican Party who are not as conservative or particularly his Christian so have we looked at that strategy and said you know what we've got people like animal mines don't go on like Cheney is chaining a new model across from me.
So I'll say okay list Katie is not where I would like her to be in the conservative Christian spectrum politics is movement on the conservative side to try to do the same thing that happened with AOC and maybe get rid of somebody questionable people on our side.
There's always a man and not necessarily from like the Republican apparatus said the Republican apparatus. Once you have an arm by your name and I look you color on that primary.
They're going to support you. There are some there are some rare occasions where they will not and and flat the same time if you got your name. The Republican" establishment is to get behind you where where where there is a movement is really facilities conservative organizations like no family research Council club for file summary spokes you are who are realizing that you know if you here in Wyoming pretty conservative state. Chances are if if if if you're Republican. There you can be a member of Congress. Therefore, for many many years.
As long as you don't cross Republican orthodoxy and Anna and and I would dare say I am kind of being careful little bit but I don't think I need to be personally I'm not.
I'm not all that impressed with with how Liz Cheney has has handled things since January 6 you know and and and so I think that she know she does have a challenge and in and I and I believe that that challengers followed going to prevail on the president is is is spending a lot of time in Wyoming. He wants to make sure that Liz Cheney is gone but but beyond that, I think you're saying it in somebody's these open seats and somebody's open seats that are in solid red districts truly where you can have a champion somebody who who really need to worry about.
You know the you know what what some of the folks in suburbia thinking is because I think that these are solid red district and their they have the freedom to push the caucus a little farther to the conservative side and and I you know I think that I have fantastic and and I think it's you know those suitors.
Folks that I care about that. I'll try you know hang out with who are not very happy with Marjorie Taylor Green out of Georgia right my my scanner line is well guess what you like her. Her district.
Her district thinks that she is running just fine. That's why she just where one One-A-Day another primary and inches you know you mean I don't always like her style.
You know I don't always like it when everybody comes what comes out of Luke's mouth, but at the same time you know what that's up to two to her district and you know sometimes if somebody goes, I'm not thinking about Marjorie Taylor Green lectures, there's a there's quite a few that they say something that's so outrageous that's where somebody comes and goes. You know what is going to far, you know that, then now you don't have that on the Democrat side. That's why that's why you you have these outrageous things that the so-called squatter saying and and nobody shouts nobody, nobody posted on February 2 you gone too far. I almost wonder if there there is a too far when it comes Nancy close yet. I think I think secretly she, you know, once those supposed to do her dirty work right. Whereas, on the Republican side they try to be a little more discipline. That's just how sometimes I get in trouble and it's one of the reasons why is bigger. The houses is just not the greatest job in the world you're a member of Congress because your job is to share worry about what all your Republican colleagues think not just you know your district so a little excited about this stuff a lot. I get lonely, though I got some questions. I'm happy to answer no great image educating allusions. So let's get in the weeds a little bit more and talk about primaries, there might be people you believe are not there a lot of people are not like you are and I like to know the reason the supplement wasn't likely Galen told me know what they mean. Do you mind sharing with explain your listeners what a primary is why they're so important because there's a lot of going on right now how are primary structures talk about it from Republican standpoint, Republicans have generally have a a primary date anywhere from February till around September where you know anybody who is a a a registered Republican candidate meets constitutional requirement can can run for office as a Republican and gay you know and somebody's races we've had as many as 15 people. Republicans run in in Alaska. I've lost tell of how many Republicans are running you know most people think about Sarah Palin running for Congress again.
But there are say like 25 other Republicans in that ration that might be a conservative number will general you have is primary and basically it's kind of market-driven in the sense that you never ever got there there there their message out. You know the enthusiasm of of of their volunteers are supporters will allow these folks to prevail in and and and come through the other side of the traditional primary. There are some states that have some screw things like the Princeton California just recently had their primary and may have what is called the jungle primary and so everybody loves Democrats Republican and fans are running together, and whoever the top two vote getters, regardless of party.
They go on to the general election. And so in a couple cases in California and I saw there are, sadly, there's no true Republicans running against each other. That would be great, but descriptors like two or three in California wears its two Democrats running into each other and normally it's a progressive versus a more traditional and I put my air quotes out traditional Democrat and the battle BW thunder watching November had a dual core jumping is pointless.

It may not exceed the best show important nails.
We have opportunities. Conservative Christians to take back the United States House of Representatives that U.S. Senate and state House and Senate race of the local races across the country on they were talking with Mike Mears about races that are going on right now and he was before the break, explaining to us primaries on primaries are basically were people within the same party. Most cases running against people in their 40s to take the winter that will go head-to-head with the person on the opposite party in the gym was called the general election in November, so Mike we've in the last month we had a series of states were there been important primaries.
I live in North Carolina and one that was, like I did surprise me that you brought some I think were management all for who was I think the youngest congressman in the country. Shortly you like the headlines he was in diapers a lot and the Madison losses a primary election which is nearly a year ago people would have thought that is all the time dollar the country… Run young rockstar and that and he lost and I thought it was funny because I know the liberal media bike was just an example gives present company endorsed a Madison call one day an example for President Reagan is losing his power, Mike. I didn't see them at all affect the national media didn't really cover but Madison and other aspirations and he had jumped around the leftist congressional district in the Asheville, North Carolina. Which is southwestern North Carolina mountains and in the run of one district committee was going around in another district and then finally came back to run in Asheville when he got out of the Asheville race. Initially, Mike people that were friends is, generally running it; a bunch of people got in that race that would've never gotten primary and Madison stayed where he was in the beginning and then when he came back people to dig up in the mediated media tried it had nothing to do with Pres. Crockett wasn't a reflection on Pres. Truong. It was a matter of people that were friends of Madison were now running to get.
I know some of my endorsed one of Madison was out of the race. You know so you get a kick out of. They try to make it right the plumbers so Barb right right is very tight right now and that we had a very interesting primary with the manual for boy music congressman right now. Endorsed by presidents open. He ended up winning all your motion Walker in Georgia so what are some of the race is really surprised and again at having nothing to the World Bank got the best you knew what was really happening. If you see any surprising the primary so far you think races we need to be watching in the coming months supply. Now, in my opinion going, scripted worse cadre of candidates on the Republican side. I'm thinking about Indiana one of their primary got back in May and there's a person congressman by the Frank Moran about not. I'm not really educated on his voting record.
Although I pretty sure you'd lockstep with Nancy Pelosi and but we just put up candidate Jennifer Greene, African-American woman Lieut. Col. in the Air Force. There was a commercial pilot and and and so a surprise to me because you know because I know I have seen seen some real great diversity and in our in our in our party. Especially the last five years like this and this is a race that I'm I'm watching I want to allow the California races, California is a liberal state, but there's a lot of pocket of conservativism in the state of California and there's probably about all think about seven or eight deep center in Clay on the Democrat side and then there's there's probably another three or four on the Republican side of the sky watching the enemy fine like I think about the orange County. Everybody should know on scanning at the home of Disneyland, my beloved Anaheim Angels.
Also, John Wayne or Skelly was considered a bastion of conservatism in the West, it has been trending blue.
We got a couple would die young Kim out of the diamond bar area looks like she's going to grab a cup race but but I think that you can prevail again to the first person congressman got Michelle steel and who's out in the Huntington Beach area. She knocked off the a a liberal Democrat last; and I think he's going to try to come back and and and and get his feedback. I bring those two up again because there is again diversity within the Republican Party shell stillness is Korean and so is young Kim both very very good candidates. Volcanic and then catch look was 7070 campaigns that I'm looking at it also gets jumbled together, but I'm I'm I'm watching the Colorado race.
We haven't Senate race.
We haven't had a primary there yet I don't have a good sense of who to come out of that, but I but my suspicions is that this is going to be a competitive rate. And a lot of the outside groups to spend money there and try to look them on my list what you think you may ask you about Florida. Do you think Morgan reviewing know it's going to be competitive. I would be a surprise to me if Marco Rubio or if somehow we could, but I don't know when that that that speaking in North Carolina or JD Vance doesn't win the race in an Ohio I would be really shocked. Does that mean we shouldn't spend some time there and my nano if you go to my like my favorite tool to cook political reports that I have those of those three is leaning Republican. I think it's I think it's more likely Republican. It's not to be safe will be close.
There's always closer Florida always closer North Carolina 55 I was a betting man, and I'm not. In case somebody my family listening. I am not a betting man I was. I would be pretty confident that those three market Rubio, Ted Bodden, JD Vance window you will be big money spinning a great one about Google's local yellow motor interesting racing along – so I haven't had to bear the primary and it's coming up president just endorsed Blake Masters, but their spirit there some other candidate. I haven't looked at polling agenda look at polling about a week out virtually shell don't have a have a real sense of that in Georgia now that I deny I will talk about this last time we talked, but II spent spent five days in Georgia for the runoff last year, or 20, 21, and that was just heartbreaking and so seeing the Rev. Warnock becoming US Sen. Warnock and and I listen to some of things that he has that a mere 1.8 UK like an Easter tweet out and and talk about how you know there are many ways to come to faith in Jesus Christ and to go to heaven and thought just wanted I'm like you would weigh against Christian orthodoxy. Now you got Herschel Walker, who's got strong faith of this is another man who is not afraid to talk about his faith on the campaign trail and was not afraid to talk about his faith even before, and he's been very very very candid about some of his health problems.
He did play football for for many years and there you had the thought of you been diagnosed with what they call CTE where you get your head been given enough time that it a little little muddy up there, but they caught it and sound like he's he's he's doing well, but I'm not. I'm not about Tony secret. This is something that they have been very very open and transparent with and and so that's that's a race that you know I managed to sleep for three or four days that that first week in November because every so many races that may or may not be determined. The winner on on election night. Sadly, yeah. And I think you every ways you knew that I they will just drag like a reason we got to go all on an island gently in Georgia with Stacy Abrams there, you can probably make it in relation Senate race and probably drag on for a while like thank you so much will be working always great when you're on the show is periodically between now and November and back to get you to continue share wisdom.
