Hey everybody, Charlie Kirk here. We've been working very hard on an amazing new docu-series called Border Battle. It chronicles the horrifying conditions on America's southern border. What you are going to see in Border Battle will blow your mind. It's amazing.
First-hand interviews, incredible commentary, straight up on the front lines. We've worked very hard on this from Turning Point USA, and we are exposing the border crisis, available exclusively on SalemNow.com. Produced by Turning Point USA, available at SalemNow.com. Welcome to The Todd Starn Show, sponsored by Legacy Precious Metals. There's never been a better time to invest in precious metals. Visit LegacyPMInvestments.com.
That's LegacyPMInvestments.com. Well, hello, everybody. Welcome to The Todd Starn's radio program. We are now 12 days until the midterm elections, Decision Day for America.
And we are so honored that you have chosen to hang out with us. You have made us your 2022 midterm election headquarters, and we have some great guests coming up. Senator Marsha Blackburn is on the road in Iowa, and you can read into that whatever you want to. But I was speaking to some folks close to the senator just yesterday, and there could be a reason, another reason why she is in Iowa, not just a campaign for Governor Kim Reynolds and a lot of the other folks running. I believe Chuck Grassley is running. There could be another reason for the senator to be in Iowa.
We'll have to see how that plays out. Could it be that Marsha Blackburn is going to be a presidential contender or perhaps a vice presidential contender? Lots of folks are starting to talk about that.
So anyway, we'll chat with her in just a little while. Chad Connolly is here from Faith Winds. They are mobilizing conservatives and evangelicals around America to vote. Also, Congressman Andy Biggs is going to drop by as well as Harry Hurley up at WPG in Atlantic City. Harry's got some intel on this big Senate race, gubernatorial race there in Pennsylvania. And we'll also check in on the New Jersey races where across the board, ladies and gentlemen, across the board.
You heard this from Matt Towery yesterday. Republicans are actually gaining ground in areas that are predominantly blue. So we are anticipating a massive red tsunami on Election Day. And what is it that the Biden administration is focused on in the lead up to the midterm elections? You've got Kamala Harris out there talking about yellow school buses, and you have Joe Biden complaining about minorities not having enough legroom on airplanes. So it's looking pretty darn good for the Republicans out there.
But I want to start with a fascinating story. And there's a little bit of political intrigue going on right now moving ahead to 2024. And all indications are that Donald Trump is going to run for the presidency again.
That's the general thought. There's also some scuttlebutt that Governor Rod DeSantis is planning a race as well. And both sides are now starting to throw jams at each other.
And it's really fascinating. And I want to share with you a Politico story. And then I'll share with you something President Trump just shared this morning on his Truth Social platform. But Politico is reporting there is some bad blood brewing between DeSantis and Trump. And it's over a rally that President Trump is holding for Senator Marco Rubio. This is going to be held in Florida. And apparently no one in the DeSantis team was told about this.
Nobody said that. Nobody told the governor, gave the governor's team a heads up, that Trump is going to be going to Miami just two days before the midterms. And keep in mind DeSantis is in a pretty significant battle for his job as governor going up against Charlie Christ. Now I think the governor is going to be able to pull out a big win here.
But you just don't know. And so you would think that the Trump team would have invited Governor DeSantis to come and be a part of the rally. The governor's name was not on any of the announcements. And apparently the governor is not going to be attending the rally with President Trump and Senator Marco Rubio. Reading from the Politico article here, the apparent snub angered some within DeSantis's orbit who complained that Florida governor's team was not informed of the rally prior to Trump announcing it. The timing of the Trump and Rubio event means any campaign event DeSantis holds that day will not get as much attention during the final stretch of the 2022 midterms. Quote, you've got the Sunday before Election Day totally hijacked by Trump parachuting in on Trump Force One, taking up the whole day. A longtime Republican consultant who is close to the governor said, no Republican could go to a DeSantis event that day.
None. And DeSantis won't be here. This is big. Another person who is influential in DeSantis's world said it was, quote, an elbow to Ron's throat and blamed Trump advisers. Now, an adviser for Trump disputed any conflict between the former president and the governor who could be Trump's potential rival for the presidential nomination if both men run for the White House. Trump's rally is part of a four city tour that the former president is making ahead of the November 8 election.
Well, it seems to me this is all very simple. Just invite DeSantis to be a part of the rally. I don't understand why this is such a major deal.
So that came out earlier today. Then after this story came out, President Trump shared a video of Megyn Kelly on a podcast talking about whether or not DeSantis actually had a shot at becoming the nominee in 2024. Trump shared this with a two word statement, a two word response. I agree. Let's listen to what Megyn Kelly said. Well, I just don't think anybody else could win if Trump runs. So and I don't I just really you think if they got on a stage, you don't think that DeSantis is crafty enough or stands enough.
Really? No, I don't even think that a little. I think Trump sucks up all the energy in every room no matter what. And even someone is skilled as a politician and smart policy wise as DeSantis can't overcome that.
You can't. You really think the hardcore MAGA is going to abandon Trump or DeSantis? They're not. They they like DeSantis, but they don't think it's his turn. They think Trump is screwed out of his last election. That he was screwed out of his first term by all the craziness and the Russia gate and so on. And they think he's he is entitled.
He deserves another shot at it. Like the hardcore Trump faithful is unshakable. They like DeSantis, but they would never cross Trump for him. And they think that DeSantis owes his political career to Trump. Like if forced to choose, they will choose Trump. So DeSantis can't take him down.
It's like the line in war games. The only winning move is not to play. DeSantis has got to either be crowned by Trump or he shouldn't run. He won't win over Trump. I'll stand by that. You can play it against me if I'm wrong, but I won't be.
All right. So Megyn Kelly says that if if DeSantis decides to go up against Trump, DeSantis loses and Trump sent out a two word statement saying I agree, which is pretty fascinating because again, we're talking about Megyn Kelly here. And there's a lot of well, I don't mean to use this phrase, but there is a lot of bad blood between those two. Going back to that infamous Fox News debate.
So anyway, look, all I can say is knock it off, people. You know, seriously, we've got to play smart here. And and I think there's a lot to this that some of Trump's advisers do not have the president's best interest at heart. And because I know that President Trump is a is a smart. He's a shrewd businessman and politician now.
And he knows about optics. And I just I just have a big problem with the with these advisers going at it and taking this fight public. And that's exactly what's happening here. So I don't know if Trump's trying to send DeSantis a message, but it's not good right now. Right now, we need a unified party going into the midterm elections.
We cannot be dividing ourselves. We're going to have plenty of time to hash out the 2024 presidential election. We've got plenty of time to do it. As a matter of fact, I suspect the first ads will be running on November the 9th. As soon as the as soon as the last ballots are counted. Well, it may not be November 9th because Pennsylvania, the Secretary of State coming out late yesterday and announcing it could be days. Yes, days until all the votes are counted in Pennsylvania.
You say, Todd, wait, what? You know, seriously, the Secretary of State in Pennsylvania came out yesterday and said it may very well be days until they're able to count all of those. And you need to be very alarmed about that people of Pennsylvania. Because that tells me that there is a plot afoot to cause hijinks, shenanigans with the counting of the ballots. There's no reason it will take days to count ballots. No reason whatsoever. You have third world countries that can count ballots in a single day.
There's no reason why the greatest nation, most exceptional nation on the planet cannot count ballots in one day. None whatsoever. So you better be paying very close attention. They're giving you clues that they're going to be up to something.
Mark my words on this. So anyway, there you have it, folks. I suspect there's going to be there's going to be more scuttlebutt. Clearly, though, there's something to this. Otherwise, Trump would not have put out that message from Megyn Kelly. So both sides now starting to throw jabs. Let's just hope the shooting doesn't start right now. We need that. We need them to wait until after the midterm elections for that to happen. 844-747-8868.
That's 844-747-8868. Are you on Team Trump or Team DeSantis? Either one would make a great president. But personally, I think if Trump, because Trump's been working his butt off. He's been out there doing the rallies. He's been out there getting the people out.
Filling up the stadiums. He's been out there doing a lot of hard work. Seems to me, if Trump feels like he's ready to do it again, let's give the guy a shot.
Like Megyn Kelly said, in some ways, this would be his first term in office. I mean, the level of hate and vitriol. Geez, hello.
Anyway, we'll get to that story a little bit later on. Also, Lindsey Graham says this is great. Lindsey Graham says people are going to be jumping off bridges in San Francisco by the thousands if Jim Jordan becomes chairman of the House Judiciary Committee. Every now and again, old Senator Graham comes up with a zinger, and that's one of them.
And he's right. And it's not just in San Francisco. They're going to be jumping off bridges.
They're going to be jumping off bridges across America. That's what's going to happen. All right, we got to take a break here. Pay some bills also. I want to remind you, this is the final stretch.

Hi. Good night, everybody. He only paid a dollar for the condo where he stays. His own bills he never pays, and I'm amazed that people do not find this funny. Hey, Mr. Fennerman, soon you'll be found out. You're afraid of Dr. Oz, we know that much is true. Hey, Mr. Fennerman, you're protected, there's no doubt, by the liberal media enabling you. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is Jim Gossett on the lead-o deck of the Todd Stearns Radio Show cruise ship.
Hey, Mr. Fennerman, I love it. Welcome back to the Todd Stearns Radio Show. Good to have you with us today.
844-747-8868 is our telephone number. Let's go to the phones here. Robin in Indiana, listening to us today. Robin, what's on your mind?
Hi, Todd. I just wanted to say that your question, are you Trump or DeSantis fan? I'm going to answer both with the caveat that I'm not a DeSantis fan that he runs for president in 2024. And one of the reasons is Trump's going to take him out like he took out all those other Republicans when it comes to any kind of debates and bringing up points. Trump's base and DeSantis base is basically based on Trump people. And if DeSantis puts himself in a position against Trump, he may very well ruin his chances for a 2028 run by things he may or may say or accuse the president of. This is my concern here, Robin, is that those two would be slugging it out and throwing mud.
And at that point, it could damage one or both of them. So look, unless DeSantis wants to be the VP, and I don't think even that's a good move, I think let DeSantis be DeSantis when he wins reelection, let him serve out his four years, and then that sets him up for a 2028 run. But I just, again, if that's how it plays out, but I think by and large, and I'm curious to hear from a lot of our other listeners, Robin, it seems to me that Trump is due this. I think he's owed this after what he went through in the last presidential election and then how he was treated during his first term in office.
Oh, no, I don't disagree at all. That's why I'm now a poll inspector in my precinct. I started in the midterms, and tonight's our final training where we bring the clerks, the judges, and the poll workers in. But President Trump, and what happened with the last election, made me go and start working my precinct and getting to know what's going on in it. And I encourage everybody to do it.
It's not interference. Everybody has a right. You need to do it to see how the process works and you get to have input in it after the training's over of how you think the training goes. And then they improve on that the next time. Good for you, Robin. I am so proud of you for getting involved in the political process and you're out there volunteering and it takes time. But I would call on every person who has the ability to get out there and volunteer, be a poll watcher, keep your eyes and ears open. We've got to do what the left has been doing for generations now. And we cannot just sit on our laurels and just go and vote or then stay home.
I know in Memphis, Tennessee in the August elections, only 20 percent of registered voters went out to vote. So we've got a lot of work to do on our side of the table as well. And Robin, I'm so happy that you're out there doing the right thing. Thank you, Todd. And I encourage every one of your listeners, it's not hard.
It was intimidating my very first time going to a meeting, not knowing what to expect. But it's a bunch of people, Democrats and Republicans, working together on making a safe election, period. That's all it is.
No political talk, no arguments. I love it. Robin, good for you. Folks, Robin is setting a great example for the rest of us. We appreciate you calling in. Hang tight. We've got Marsha Blackburn coming up.
Then Rick, listening to us from Alaska, wants to weigh in. We're going to be taking your calls as well. 844-747-8868.
That's 844-747-8868. And, hey, don't forget, head over to the website, donate some money to Alliance Depending Freedom. Please help us reach our goal. Every single dollar is going to be going to fight for our freedom in America.

I want to go right now to the Patriot Mobile Newsmaker line. Good friend of this program. She also happens to be my senator in the United States Senate.
Marcia Blackburn from Tennessee. Marcia, I hope you're doing good. I am doing well. I am out in Iowa today. It is a gorgeous day out here, and we've been doing events for Chuck Grassley, who is running for reelection for the Senate. We've got their great governor that is up for reelection. Governor Kim Reynolds. We've got Ashley Henson, who is up for a U.S. House seat. I want to send her back to Congress. And Zach Nunn, who is also running to pick up a seat for the Republican majority.
So we're having a good busy day. You know, Senator, years ago I had a chance to meet the governor of Iowa. We were doing an event together out in Des Moines after she had just assumed office. Really impressed with her hard work, her commitment to the pro-life issues. She is just like yourself, one of those rock-solid conservative leaders out there.
She is indeed. And we've talked a lot today about how she led Iowa through COVID. How she chose to govern. How she trusted the people of Iowa to make decisions for themselves and not depend on the government for those decisions. Kept kids in school. Kept businesses open. And Iowa has done well because of it.
You know, I know you've been putting on the frequent flyer miles. You've been in Georgia and Arizona. Let's talk first about Arizona.
What's your impression of Kerry Lake and Blake Masters? How are the Republican efforts going there? The efforts are going really well there.
The environment is right for us to win. People are really concerned about inflation. They're concerned about that open border. And more than one person said, we've got to close it because all those drugs are coming up through our communities and then going across the country.
The cartels are very active with how they're trying to push people through the country. So it's going to be very important that we win that governorship and also that we win that U.S. initiative. And in Georgia, it's fascinating. I know Governor Brian Kemp is doing incredibly well against Stacey Abrams. And Herschel Walker is really gaining ground. In spite of all the attacks people have seen through that, they say that he's a guy they can trust. And it's looking pretty good for the Republicans, our neighbors over in Georgia.
Yes, it is. Everybody's going to have to get out and vote. But here's the thing, Herschel Walker's life has been pretty much an open book. And people know who he is. They voted for him in the primary.
They are looking forward to having him there in the U.S. Senate. A lot of people said, look, they are trying to accuse Herschel of things and everybody is imperfect. Herschel has been very open about asking for forgiveness for anything that he may have done and continues to do so.
That's what each and every one of us should do. And he is very quick to point out, look, Raphael Warnock has voted 96% of the time with Joe Biden and Chuck Schumer. He's going to continue to do that. And Herschel Walker is going to vote to secure the border, to cut your taxes, to make the Trump tax cut permanent. And people know they can count on him to do that. And this is how amazing it is and the unifying message of the Republican Party, Senator. I know that you and I are big Tennessee volunteer fans, number three in the nation. And here you are in the state of Georgia campaigning for a Georgia bulldog. That is right.
We want to make certain he gets across the finish line. That's it. Senator Marsha Blackburn on the Patriot Mobile Newsmaker line, Senator, a couple of issues. You've been still very busy doing the people's work as well as campaigning out on the road.
You were in Nashville with our good friend Matt Walsh. I was really surprised by the turnout at that rally as you're standing up and protesting these medical mutilation surgeries. Yes. And what we have to realize is that there are puberty blockers. There are other drugs. There is chronic hormone therapy that is being given to minor children. These surgeries are being provided, being given to minor children. And we have a society has an understanding, Todd, that until a child is 16, they can't drive, they can't vote until they're 18, they can't buy alcohol and tobacco until they are 21. And we do that because you know that children's brains are developing, that they cannot make those decisions and should not be forced to make those decisions.
And yet, here you have those that are big supporters of all of this gender therapy and transition therapy who think that children as young as 10, 11-year-olds should be able to decide for themselves they want to have these surgeries. Senator Marsha Blackburn is on our Patriot Mobile Newsmaker line today and Senator, I'm very interested in some legislation that you're advancing, a bipartisan bill. As a radio station owner, I'm very excited to hear about this. It is a bill that is exposing foreign government-funded propaganda within the broadcasting community. Tell us about this piece of legislation.
Yes. What we would do is require disclosure and basically auditing from radio stations about the content that is coming to them from foreign government, content that may be paid programming. And this has come to our attention because of the propaganda. The Chinese Communist Party says they use soft propaganda, going to our universities and doing Confucius Institute, doing Confucius classrooms in K-12. Working with cities on sister city programs, all of that is soft propaganda as is pro-China programming. And making certain that there is an audit, there's an accounting, there is a disclosure on this for radio stations to fulfill. That is going to be an important step. I think it's a very important step and this is brilliant legislation and you use an example of there are two groups. One is called RM Broadcasting and the other Potomac Radio Group and that sounds fairly innocuous, but as you guys point out, these were actually front groups for Russian and the Chinese government. Right, that is correct.
And when you know that they are doing this and they're trying to place programming that is positive to them on the airways, there needs to be this disclosure mechanism. Alright, well Senator, we know you're incredibly busy out there. Where are you heading to next? We're going into Des Moines and doing another event for Senator Grassley and then I'm going to speak to the Iowa Young Republicans annual dinner which will be this evening in Des Moines.
Well, there are good people there, but I got to tell you, it gets freaking cold out there during the winter time on the campaign trail, but good people. Yes. Alright. Yes, indeed. Senator, Godspeed out there, safe travels, and we appreciate you coming on the show.
You got it, take care, bye-bye. Hey everybody, Charlie Kirk here. The southern border is wide open and we have to tell the world about it. Our team at Turning Point USA has been working over the last year to have a one-of-a-kind documentary all about the drugs, the guns, the crime, the criminals that are flowing across the southern border. Our team at Turning Point USA has been working so hard on this through amazing frontline footage that shows the Border Patrol agents, shows people crossing the border, the illegal drug trade, the economic and societal fallout that illegal immigration has on the United States, every single state is a border state. And we here being headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona want the rest of the country, want you all across America to see what we are living through in Arizona. It's a one-of-a-kind docuseries available exclusively on SalemNow.com.
That is SalemNow.com. You guys will see the poorest southern border wide open and what we can do to solve it. If you want to learn about the border, this is your opportunity, brought to you by Turning Point USA, available at SalemNow.com. All right folks, welcome back to the Todd Stearns Radio Show. Honored to have you with us today. By the way, Congressman Andy Biggs coming up in the next hour.
Chad Conley is going to be here. Well, right now I want to go to the phones, 844-747-8868. Rick is listening to us in the great state of Alaska. Rick, thanks for holding on.
What's on your mind today? Hey, thanks Todd. By the way, I'm Marcia Blackburn. She's a rock star. I wish we had a whole bunch more of her, Rick.
She is great, Rick. And again, she's just a rock-solid conservative fighting for freedom every day. Yeah, I wish Lisa Murkowski was that way.
Yeah, it is. You know, and I'm curious how the race is going up there. This election cycle is crazy. Yeah, Lisa Murkowski is probably going to win.
The way the ranked choice voting works is you have to get through the first round with 50% plus one of the vote. And Murkowski is literally just a moderate Democrat, and she's going to get probably 40 to 50% of the Democrat vote. And then 20% of the Republicans will vote for her just because of name recognition.
That's what's happened before. So we're going to make it to at least the second round. And then Les Gera, who's running, has told everybody to rank her second, rank him first. The Democrats are telling everybody to rank Les Murkowski second.
So if it gets to the second round, yeah, Les is going to be in. You've got the GOP there in Alaska. They voted to censure Mitch McConnell for backing the wrong candidate there. Then you've got Murkowski endorsing the Democrat instead of Sarah Palin. I mean, it's just crazy some of the stuff that's happening up there.
It is pretty wild. The Republican Party here in Alaska has finally found a backbone. But it doesn't mean anything. And Mitch McConnell is going to do whatever he wants to do. And of course, he's supporting the big government, Democrat, Les Murkowski. Oh, I said Democrats instead of Republicans, didn't I? No, I think you got it right there, Rick. So, yeah, I mean, every commercial is all about how horrible Kelly is.
Kelly Jabaka. But, yeah, if she can get 50 percent plus one, she wins. Otherwise, yeah, this is Les Murkowski's race. It's unfortunate, but... Rick, I know you wanted to weigh in on the Trump-Dysantis situation. What side of the coin are you there? Well, to be perfectly honest, there's only one person on the planet that can unite the dumpster fire of a Democrat Party, and that's Donald Trump.
I love the man. I've got a hat. I mean, I work in a teacher's union.
So, I'm the red-headed stepchild out here, and I'm proud of it. It's unfortunate that there are people that will sit out voting because of what's going on in a Democrat Party, but they will vote if Donald Trump runs. The Santas gives us all the upside, and plus he's younger, and not as much as the downside that Donald Trump will.
Rick, look, I think there are a lot of folks trying to work their way through this, and the fact that this fight has sort of been percolating for a while now, but we don't need for it to come to a head until after the midterm elections. And I would like to think that whoever is advising President Trump on this would do the right thing, invite the Santas to the rally. It's not like they have to endorse each other on that stage, but Trump's not on the ballot. Ron DeSantis is. So is Marco Rubio, and we need a unified message in every single state in the country.
Well, I agree with you on that. The problem is the president hasn't had the best advisors. I mean, from the very beginning, his advisors put all the wrong people around him in the White House.
And it turns out they all stabbed him in the back. I mean, it just, and the only one who didn't ended up having to resign. I just, yeah, he's getting, some of his endorsements have been kind of wacky. I just, I worry about who's advising him and who he's listening to.
I think that Santas is just high speed and low drag. Watching him work at the job is just, you know, if they didn't have, if they had mountains, I'd move to Florida. Well, there you go. All right, Rick, we're going to have to leave it there. Good thoughts. Give us a call back one of these days, Rick, by the way, listening to us on our awesome app.
You can download that app by going to Toddsterns.com and click on the live show blog and you'll see the link right there. Some, some sad news to share with you from the world of conservative journalism. Our good friend Michelle Malkin is retiring. Michelle Malkin has been a, an incredible journalist.
She has been a friend for a number of years, going back, wow, 20 years now, we've known each other. And she was a regular on my program when I was back at Fox and I'll explain what happened there in just a moment. But anyway, Michelle is, is throwing in the towel and after I have never seen someone that has been so viciously attacked day in and day out over the years, the Michelle Malkin. And she is a brilliant journalist and has had a very decorated and award-winning career.
And now she says, you know what, I'm, I'm stepping back. And I want to read to you from the column and she announced her retirement in a column. She says, now the liberal media is dominated by endless supplies of smug, usually very pale-faced millennial journalism school grads, spouting about diversity while parroting the same worn set of views on whites as evil, America as oppressor, nuclear families as abnormal and liberal democracy as sacrosanct. Conservative media is not much better.
And I want you to listen to what she has to say here because every single thing she writes is true. Conservative media is dominated by snot-nosed DC libertarian elites from overpriced universities who slavishly promote free market capitalism and cast big government as our greatest enemy. While private Silicon Valley corporations and their nonprofit allies crush nationalist dissent, handcuff free speech, and deplatform free thinkers through censorship, hard and soft, and lawfare, the systematic abuse of the courts to harm political critics. She goes on to call out some of the conservative journalists that she's talking about. Because of my peacefully expressed reporting, opinions and speeches, my family has been punished and stigmatized, my reputation tarnished, my voice squelched.
It's not big government that waged this war on my career. It's a constellation of vindictive wrong think police in the private sector. From the Southern Poverty Law Center and Anti-Defamation League to foreign newspapers. And then she names out the conservative swamp creatures and profiteers. Bill Crystal, Jonah Goldberg, Mona Charon, and Ben Shapiro. Now that's a shock for a lot of people, but she's calling out Ben Shapiro here.
And even to former colleagues at Fox News Channel, which blacklisted me several years ago and told a friend of mine who was a guest on Tucker's show not to say my name on air. You say, Todd, that can't be true. Oh, it is true. And I'll tell you why I know that. Because one day I asked my producer at the time, I said, let's get Michelle Malkin on the show. And my producer came back about an hour later and said, Todd, we're not allowed to have Michelle on the show anymore. I said, what are you talking about?
This is my show. I can have who I want. Todd, no, Fox News will not allow her to come on your program anymore. And you're not allowed to tell Michelle why.
And I'm like, so so wait, and now all of a sudden I become a bad guy. I'm not even allowed to tell my friend of 20 years that she can't come on my program because Fox News blacklisted her. And why is that? Because she is a woman who had a very strong opinion and an opinion that I happen to agree with, by the way. And, you know, I hesitate to bash. I don't like going after fellow conservatives in the media.
I will say this. Everything Michelle wrote in that column is, in fact, true. A lot of these people who claim to be conservatives are not conservatives. They're, in fact, libertarians.
They don't support. And a lot of these people in their heart of hearts do not support the same issues and causes that you and I care about. But again, the celebrity of it all elevates them into these positions. And young people especially are drawn to that.
They're drawn to the celebrity. So anyway, Michelle's calling it a day. She says enough is enough. But you know what? We're going to fight the good fight. We still got a lot of fighting odds. I mean, they've called us every day.
I'm out of the books. But you know what? We're still here and we still have a great big smile on our face. We have resolved in our hearts and we're ready to fight the good fight. Hey, our two coming up next.
This is the Todd Stern show. Border battle. The new six part documentary series puts you on the front line of America's southern border and rise of the deadly drug fentanyl. The overdose death crisis in this country is directly linked to Cartel Jalisco new generation and the Sinaloa cartel in their labs. Fentanyl is 50 times more powerful than heroin.
Three grains of fentanyl would kill you. Tens of thousands of Americans have died and our southern border is a drug cartel war zone. Now they have sophisticated weapons, tanks, they're dropping explosives on their competitors right by the border. We've never seen this before in the history of the country. Border battle shows a border crisis like never before with exclusive footage exposing the consequences of illegal immigration, drug trafficking and decades of government neglect.
This will get worse before it gets better. Watch border battle from turning point USA. Download this shocking six part series now at Salem now dot com.
That's Salem now dot com Salem now dot com. Live from the Liberty University studio in Memphis, Tennessee, it's common sense conservative commentary from Todd Starnes. And hello, Americans.
Welcome to the Todd Starnes radio program. We are now 12 days until the midterm elections. Decision Day is looming and the nation is preparing for what could be a red tsunami, a welcome one and all. So glad you have decided to hang out with us today.
Noon to three Eastern. This headline from Politico Election Anxiety creeps inside the White House. Sources are now telling Politico that Democrats are freaking out. The general belief now is among Democrats.
Republicans will capture the House of Representatives and possibly even the U.S. Senate. And with those fears, President Biden plans to remain largely on the sidelines during the race. Well, of course, what I mean, he's been on the sidelines for his entire presidency. Politico goes on to report that Republican control of Congress would dramatically complicate Biden's next two years. You think so.
You really think so. They're political reporters. No, the plan is to dramatically stop Biden's agenda dead in its tracks.
And that's going to happen, ladies and gentlemen, if the Republicans win and they win big on Election Day. Well, I want to go to the Patriot Mobile Newsmaker line. Our next guest has been literally traveling all over America. He served as chairman of the South Carolina Republican Party for quite a while, a number of years. He was also the RNC's first ever national director of faith engagement.
Our good friend, he is the founder of Faith Wins. Chad Conley is on the Patriot Mobile Newsmaker line. And Chad, I understand you last night you were in Nevada. Welcome. Welcome to the show.
Hey, my brother, man, you are so right. There's a tsunami coming. We were in Nevada last night. I just stepped off the Red Eye not long ago.
And I'll tell you, Todd, as a zombie as you feel after a Red Eye, I am fired up for the nation. We were actually in Southern California over the weekend and went to Nevada. I'll be in Arizona tomorrow.
I'll get back on a flight tomorrow to go to Arizona for three days and we'll wrap up in Texas. We're trying to hit everywhere we can just to maximize the Christian vote in every election, brother. And that's been a big challenge for years. And I don't think anyone has been as effective, you know, going back to Jerry Falwell Sr. And of course, the great work Ralph Reed did back during the Christian Coalition days, now the Faith and Freedom folks. But you're out there boots on the ground, Chad. And I'm wondering what you are seeing among Christian voters.
Are we getting are we going to get them out to vote on Election Day? Man, Todd, like you said, we get to stand on the shoulders of giants who set a pattern for us. We're just trying to duplicate and maybe enhance that.
And yes, yes, yes. I've done this an awful long time and I have never seen people coming out of the woodwork to say, what can I do on a bunch of levels? And I can tell you stories all day long about this. We had 384 in a church last night in northern Las Vegas. We had a lunch yesterday with 60 something people. Over half were pastors. That was lunch in another part of Vegas. We were in Pahrump, Nevada the night before with 125.
We were in San Diego the night before with, I don't know, 600, 650 people there. You know, I've spent my whole adult career in politics trying to get people to be motivated. Just like you said, it's difficult task.
People are coming to us and saying, what can I do? You probably know. I think I told the story last time I was on the show. We're recruiting Christian poll watchers from churches in eight states. I got news yesterday, Todd, that actually the state of Wisconsin and the state of Nevada, and to the point where nobody even knows this has ever happened, 100% of the poll watcher positions are filled.
If that's not a testimony to how people are coming out, I don't know what is because we've begged people to do that for years. And the folks in Wisconsin think that less than 10% of those spots were filled last time, and certainly a very similar number for Nevada, and to think that 100% are filled now is astounding to me. What I find astounding is that you are in places like California and Arizona and Nevada. That tells us that those typically Democrat controlled states are up for grabs and that there's a very good chance that the Republicans will be able to win. I'm looking at the latest polling data coming out of Nevada, for example, at the Adam Laxalt race against Cortez Mastro, and he is now leading, and that was not expected to happen. So that was a seat the Democrats were expecting to hold onto without much struggle, and it looks like that may not be the case after all. Well, and I think it's really happening nationwide.
David Barton and I are doing this barnstorming tool. We're actually going to get in 132 cities and 24 states between February and November 8th, and I guess we're going to end up with about 75 of those that happened between September 1st and the election. So we've had a really good view. I was in Wisconsin a couple weeks ago, Todd. We were in the inner city of Baltimore with African American pastors three weeks ago.
The inner city of Philadelphia with a real mixed ethnicity group of pastors and leaders. They're just sick of the crime. They're sick of the lies. They're sick of the hypocrisy from the left.
They're sick of being told we're taking care of you. In Wisconsin, you'll love this story. A pastor comes up to me. He was saved late in life.
He's probably mid 40s. He's had this church for, I think he told me, 12 or 14 years. About 1200 people come to church, and what my pastor in the state had asked him to use his venue.
We had 144 people in the room. 81 were pastors from what my team told me. This pastor comes up and said, Chad, I'm letting you use the church because your buddy, your pastor here asked me. I love the guy, but I'm pretty skeptical about being involved. I said, Pastor, what do you mean?
What are you skeptical about? He said, just the whole political thing. I said, do you think we as a C3 want you to be political? He said, I guess so.
And I said, we just want you to be biblical, brother. He said, okay. And he said, I said, I hope you can stick around to hear my talk. And then David Barton is talking about American history and God's role. He said, I really can't. Well, Todd, I did my, you know, I did my short video with fake wins and here's what we're doing and probably talk to over 15 minutes. David talked nearly an hour. The guy stood in there the whole time. He comes up to me afterwards, Todd, and I could tell the story from virtually every state, by the way. He grabs me by the arm and says, Chad, we want to be ground zero for everything you're doing in the state of Wisconsin.
It's those kind of things that are happening to watch the light bulbs go off in people's heads. Yes, I need to be involved. Yes, it's an obligation.
It's a stewardship responsibility on my part as a Christian. I cannot not vote and tell other people what a big deal it is. Chad Connolly from Faith Winds, the founder and CEO, is on our Patriot mobile newsmaker line. By the way, folks, some new polling data coming in from Politico and Cook Political, both moving the Arizona Senate race into the toss-up category.
That had been leaning left for the Democrats, Mark Kelly, running in that race, Blake Masters. The question now, of course, will be whether or not Mitch McConnell will move more money for advertising into Arizona. Chad, you mentioned some of the big issues that are on the minds of Christian voters. I have to imagine religious liberty is a big issue.
It's a huge deal. Government overreach in regards to religious liberty. All these blue states that shut down churches first and forbid us to sing Christian songs, and yet the marijuana dispensaries in the liquor stores and the big-box stores were open. We get unfairly categorized as only caring about life and marriage. That's how the media frames us.
I do interviews with the mainstream press just about everywhere we go, and I always try to correct them. Their premise is wrong. Christians are like everybody else. They're not about these gas prices.
We're supposed to feel good because they're only twice as much as they were when Biden came in office, as opposed to three times as much as they were when he first fiddled with the stopping energy production. We're supposed to not care about things like crime and a poor southern border and drugs coming across and human trafficking, all the things we see. These people in churches are standing up saying, I'm sick of this, I've got to be involved. I think the early voting in a state like Georgia, that you look at those counties that are turning out, those long conservative counties that are over, just blowing out of the water the projections of early votes, and of course that pretty much takes away Stacey Abrams' wine and about these new election integrity laws with suppressed vote. Quite the contrary. People are coming out and saying, I care about my nation, I care about this kingdom of God's kingdom on earth, and I'm going to do my part.
All right, Chad. Great intel as always. Safe travels out there. So where are you heading to later today? So I'm home about 20 hours, and then my wife and I are going to fly to Arizona. We speak in Arizona.
I think we have five different meetings across the state of Arizona. We wanted to finish there, and then we're going to end up in Texas. So we've got a couple, three more states left. We've been trying to be nimble and be in places. We've been at it in New Hampshire last week.
So Arizona and Texas are next, brother. I appreciate what you're doing. Well, we're having a good time here, and if you get a layover in Memphis, let me know, and we'll send some ribs over for you. That sounds good, brother.
Love you, man. I appreciate you, Todd. All right, Chad Connolly, good friend of ours and a great American patriot out there on the campaign trail. And he's trying to light a fire under all of you evangelical voters. And it's interesting because if all the evangelicals just went out to vote, then by golly, you would have Republican landslide wins in every single race. But for whatever reason, it's just hard to get the evangelicals, hard to get the Christians out to vote on election day. 844-747-8868, that is our toll-free telephone number.
That's 844-747-8868. You know, early voting has been going on all over America now. And I'm curious if you folks are starting to see record turnout in your states.
Not so much here in Tennessee. So Herschel Walker was on Fox last night, and Brett Baer asked him about this new allegation. A woman claims that she had an abortion and said that Herschel Walker is the guy who paid for the abortion. He actually said this did not happen.
Now, the allegation goes back to 1993. So you know what? This is a load of crap. That's what that is. That's a load of crap.
1993. Walker told Brett Baer what I'm saying. This is a lie. There you go.
You know what? I believe him. I take him at face value.
1993, and all of a sudden you're going to raise an issue? I don't believe it. What about you, Georgia voters?
Are you buying what they're trying to sell, these allegations, against Herschel Walker? 844-747-8868. Again, that is a toll-free telephone number.
That's 844-747-8868. We are in the last two days of my campaign to help raise urgently needed financial support for Alliance Defending Freedom. Now, if you haven't donated yet, I hope you will go right now to ToddStearns.com and click on that ADF banner.
ADF receives over 500 requests every month for their free legal help to defend religious freedom and the First Amendment. Now, one of those requests came from Austin, Texas. The fire department chaplain, Dr. Andrew Fox, he's been a guest on our program. Now, he was fired for saying men should not compete against women in sports, and he said this on his personal blog. Now, ADF lawyer Ryan Bancourt says that's why ADF has now filed legal action against the city of Austin. We filed this lawsuit. We have alleged violations of Dr. Fox's First Amendment right to free speech, right to exercise his religious freely, as well as rights under the Texas Constitution. And this is a situation where the city of Austin demanded that Dr. Fox recant his beliefs in order to keep his job.
That is not the job of government institutions to tell Americans how to think, especially outside of work. Now, Alliance Defending Freedom never charges a dime to clients like Dr. Fox, and that's because their legal costs are defrayed by generous tax-deductible donations from listeners like you. And we've only got two days left for you to help my campaign. So, two ways to do this. You can go to toddsterns.com and give online, or you can call 855-417-6556. That's 855-417-6556, or you can go to toddsterns.com and click on the Alliance Defending Freedom banner.
Every dollar you give is tax-deductible. We'll be right back. Hey, everybody.
Charlie Kirk here. The southern border is wide open, and we have to tell the world about it. Our team at Turning Point USA has been working over the last year to have a one-of-a-kind documentary all about the drugs, the guns, the crime, the criminals that are flowing across the southern border. Our team at Turning Point USA has been working so hard on this through amazing frontline footage that shows the border patrol agents, shows people crossing the border, the illegal drug trade, the economic and societal fallout that illegal immigration has on the United States.
Every single state is a border state. And we here being headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona want the rest of the country, want you all across America to see what we are living through in Arizona. It's a one-of-a-kind docuseries available exclusively on SalemNow.com. That is SalemNow.com. You guys will see the poorest southern border wide open and what we can do to solve it.
If you want to learn about the border, this is your opportunity. Brought to you by Turning Point USA, available at SalemNow.com. Yeah, folks, I'm telling you right now that Herschel Walker, this guy, he's getting hosed by the left and it's not right.
And it clearly looks like the good people of Georgia are seeing right through these fake attacks. There is a brand new pullout. And this is pretty impressive. Herschel Walker now leading Rafael Warnock, jumping out to his widest lead yet. That would be 47% to 44%. So again, a three-point lead. Walker had been trailing in the poll. So by the way, Rasmussen has a poll out today showing Herschel Walker up by five points.
That's 48% to 43%. So the Democrats are freaking out. They've got so many dumpster fires burning in these races. They don't know where to put their money. They don't know what to do. And it's a brilliant thing.
I love it. But what's very interesting, and Dick Morris wrote a column about this, and we touched on it briefly yesterday, Democrats are laying the groundwork to lay all of the blame on Joe Biden, which they shouldn't. It is his fault. But they're going to use this as they're going to use this bloodbath of an election as the vehicle to remove Joe Biden from office and install Kamala Harris as President of the United States. You watch and see how this is going to play out, ladies and gentlemen. It's going to be so entertaining to watch the Democrats turn on each other. And they've already started. The Whisper campaign is growing in Washington, D.C. that Biden's got to go. And they're blaming all of this on Joe Biden.
So there you go. Good news for all of you Georgia conservatives. Herschel Walker up in at least two polls. And I suspect we're going to see that poll widen. Ron DeSantis, meanwhile, holds a 14-point lead over Charlie Crist. That's going to be brutal.
Just a brutal. Ron DeSantis has governed so well in the state of Florida. And I think the voters are going to reward him. Got to play cut eight. Herschel Walker out on the campaign trail.
Let's go to our military. You hear all these people standing in front of you and talking about that piece through the street. Yeah, you're right. That piece through strength. And our strength is our United States military.
They're the most lethal fighting force ever similar in the world today. But we have people in Washington, like Senator, why not Joe Biden, that want to bring pronouns. Pronoun? Pronouns in our military?
Are you serious? What is a pronoun? I can tell you this. My pronoun is sick and tired of this. Sick and tired of this. Oh, my goodness.
Good for you, Herschel Walker. You keep fighting. Oh, this is an interesting story. Now, the Democrats have these caucus, or we call them caucuses or cauckeye. We'll call them cauckeye. So the Democrats have these cauckeyes. And they've got the congressional black caucus and they've got the congressional Hispanic caucus because what is it? It's all about skin color with the Democrats.
I want you to just think about this for just a moment. So the Democrats are all about the party. They say they're the party of racial unity. So why are they creating these little clubs based on skin color? Anybody ever thought about that?
I mean, just think about that for a moment. And I know the Republicans like to dab their, they like to dabble about in this kind of stuff. They like to dip their big toe in the identity politics world and it fails all the time because that's not what we're about. Well, anyway, Congresswoman Flores, she was the first Republican elected from the Texas border in generations, Mayra Flores. And what did she do? Well, she's a Republican, but she tried to join the congressional Hispanic caucus and she was turned away. She was turned away.
And she's Hispanic. I'm telling you, these Democrats, they're a mess, folks. All right. We got to take a break.
844-747-8868. This is the Todd Stearns Show. Thousands of Americans have died and our southern border is a drug cartel war zone. Now they have sophisticated weapons, tanks, they're dropping explosives on their competitors right by the border. We've never seen this before in the history of the country. Border Battle shows a border crisis like never before with exclusive footage exposing the consequences of illegal immigration, drug trafficking, and decades of government neglect.
This will get worse before it gets better. Watch Border Battle from Turning Point USA. This shocking six-part series now at SalemNow.com. That's SalemNow.com.
SalemNow.com. All right, people. Welcome back to the Todd Stearns Radio Show.
Happy to have you with us today. Wow, folks, we are, I mean, it's what, 80, 90 miles an hour in the Todd Stearns Show Cadillac as we are racing towards the finish line of what is going to be a very, very, very good day for Republicans. As a matter of fact, our friends over at TheLibertyDaily.com have a huge headline up, including a photograph of Ron DeSantis. Democrats wave the white flag in Florida, going to be ugly.
And I suspect that's going to be the headline all over America. I want to go to the Patriot Mobile Newsmaker line, our good friend from the 5th Congressional District in Arizona. Congressman Andy Biggs joins us. Congressman, good to have you with us. Always great to be with you, Todd.
Thank you. And I'm curious to know how things are going out there on the campaign trail for you. Oh, you know, we've got to run through the tape.
I think we're doing okay, but you have to, you know how it is, you have to fight it out. I've got a couple of opponents, and it's amazing what they say about me, but I'm much more lovable than they could say. I can tell you that. You know, that's a great, you know, billboard campaign.
Andy Biggs is lovable. You know, it's fascinating to watch Arizona, and there have been a lot of speculation early on that the Democrats were going to have big wins in the governor's race as well as that Senate race, and it looks like with current polling data that things could very well go the way of the Republicans. Well, I think so. I think Carrie Lake, who's the Republican gubernatorial candidate, she's opening her lead on the Democrats, who is probably a worse candidate than John Federman, quite frankly. So Katie Hobbs is doing great, and that's going to cast some long tails. Yeah, so I think she's going to – Carrie Lake is doing great. Yeah, I just want to make sure.
I didn't want to slip past that. Carrie Lake's doing great, and I think she's going to be a national star, and she's lifting all the other votes in the Republican down ballot, which is good. And Blake Masters, who's running for the Senate from the Republican side, he's dead even with his Democrat opponent, and I have to tell you, Todd, I think he's going to win that thing by two or three points.
I'm with you, and that's – it looks like all the polling seems to back up your assertion there. And again, all over America, Republicans are doing incredibly well, Politico now saying that Democrats are facing a bloodbath in Florida. You're looking at Lee Zeldin making gains against Kathy Hochul of Lee, your colleague in the Congress and the House.
Yes. I guess the big question is, what's going to be first on the agenda for Republicans when you guys take control of the House? Well, you know, I was – the first thing is to start peeling back like those 87,000 IRS agents. I mean, I think we have to start clawing back money from the Inflation Acceleration Act that the Democrats recently passed and forced some of the trillion dollars, nearly trillion dollars with the fraud that was – over the last 20 months that's been put in the economy with COVID relief. You have to start dealing with that because that's the way you hope to start slowing down this inflationary pressure. And then on the other side, you have to start holding people accountable. I'm a big believer that Alejandro Mayorkas, the architect of the border policy that's emasculating our country, he needs to be held accountable.
So, yeah, I think you got both going. You're going to have some policy side there. You're going to also have this accountability that has to be done, too. Congressman Andy Biggs on the Patriot Mobile Newsmaker line. And, Congressman, there are a lot of dumpster fires that we've got to put out. One of the most concerning involves these drag theater performances that are being funded not just on American soil by our tax dollars but also in Ecuador, the White House defending all of this. But you've written a letter demanding answers from the Secretary of State. What do you want to hear from the Secretary of State? Well, I want – what I really want to hear is I want him to say, I had no idea this has stopped and we will never do something so abhorrent again.
That's what I want to hear. But in the meantime, since we probably won't hear that, I want to hear who made the decision, why they made the decision, how much money they spent, how many other places around the world is this happening. And I wanted to get behind the whole woke ideology of the State Department and why they're focused on that instead of things like, I don't know, encouraging Ukraine and Russia to try to sit down at the table and start negotiating peace.
How about that? Isn't that what the State Department would do? It's what they did always during the Middle East crises between the Arab-Israeli wars.
How about trying to do that? I mean, we're spending so much money on overseas initiatives. We're pretty much – we have pretty much turned Ukraine into the 51st state of the union.
And at what point do you just say, you know, enough is enough. You know, if we've got money – if we've got money to fund these drag queen shows in Ecuador, then the government's got too much money on their hands. Well, amen.
I mean, that's for sure we do. But at the same time, why is it a priority to do drag queen shows in Ecuador, but not a priority to secure America's border, southern border? Why isn't it a priority to stop the flow of fentanyl into our country? Or why isn't it a priority to open up the oil and gas production for Pete's sakes? And, you know, I want to go back to the border crossings.
The story that the media just refuses to cover, they refuse to make this connection. The number of fentanyl deaths in America and the numbers of fentanyl pills, the drugs that are literally pouring across our border, it's like we have, you know, a drug keystone pipeline. 577,000 fentanyl pills seized at the border just over the weekend. Yeah, and that was just in no gallons.
One port of entry, an Arizona port of entry. And what's not reported about that is that the week before, they found another – I think it was 400,000 fentanyl pills just the week before. And then about a month and a half before that, in Phoenix, a million fentanyl pills. In other words, right in Arizona, in no gallons, through the no gallons port of entry all the way up to Phoenix, you've had enough fentanyl pills in the last six weeks to kill every man, woman and child in the United States two times over. It's a shocking statistic. And we have got to get this under control. The border patrol officers need as much help as they can possibly get. And then when you throw in the late night document dump a couple of Fridays ago when the Biden administration said, oh, yeah, we've had a couple of million people cross the border, oops, are bad. I mean, this is nuts.
Yeah, it really is. And we have Democrats who refuse even to acknowledge that there's an issue whatsoever on the border. And yet the American people, it's behind the economy. It's the number two issue in the country, you know, security on the border and security and crime in their own neighborhoods. So this administration basically has caused these problems. And because there's going to be electoral outcomes that they're not happy with, they're trying to suppress or hide what is happening.
And I just think American people are too smart to get caught up and be deceived by what's going on and the messaging out of this White House. All right. Well, Congressman, we're going to leave it there. And we wish you the very best of luck out there on the campaign trail. It's going to be a great day on Election Day. And we're excited that the Republicans are on their way to victory. Amen. Thanks, Todd.
Good to be with you. All right, Congressman Andy Biggs, everybody, member of the House Freedom Caucus and a good friend of this program. You heard him, by the way, on the Patriot Mobile newsmaker line. And we are honored that Patriot Mobile is a supporter of this radio program.

Joy has embraced hers, intimately so. Do you know that when you were talking about your ghost last week on the Hill telling me that everyone was so smart they didn't need disclaimers on your shows? Everyone talked about your sex with ghosts. I know, there were three new items. It broke the internet.
People magazine. Look at this. They had sex. And she doesn't even believe in ghosts. So let me just set the record straight, okay? It's all true. It's all true. I have had sex with ghosts. Casper was not a generous lover. It was almost like having sex with myself.
It's so light. So yes, it's true, ladies and gentlemen. Yes, People magazine. Write another story. Well, that was no Holy Ghost. I'll tell you that much. Joy Behar, one of the squawking magpies on The View, alleging that she has had relations with paranormal creatures. May I just say, and I don't mean to disparage Miss Behar by any stretch of the imagination.
But, you know, the problem with that, if you're a ghost and you're having a fling with Miss Behar, you really can't kill yourself afterwards because you're already dead. So what do you do? I mean, jeez, hello. There you go. The latest on The View. 45% of Americans believe the U.S. should be a Christian nation. That's according to a new Pew Research survey. They've been taking a look at Christian nationalism. By the way, have you noticed that even now, a lot of these evangelical people think that that going to church on Sunday and pledging allegiance to the flag on Monday is like an evil sin.
Have you noticed that? Researchers say respondents differed greatly when it came to outlining what a Christian nation should look like. 45% say the United States should be a Christian nation.
That's a lot of people, according to Greg Smith, one of the authors of the survey. But what people mean when they say they think the U.S. should be a Christian nation is really quite nuanced. And I'm curious to hear from our listeners on this. Do you think that the United States should be a Christian nation? And if so, what do you mean by that? What does it mean to be a Christian nation? I have my own thoughts on this, and I'll share later. But I'm curious to know what you think about that. 844-747-8868. Should America be a Christian nation?
And if so, what would that look like? 844-747-8868. Where is that story? Ah, yes.
Then my fingers, ladies and gentlemen. A story from churchleaders.com. TD Jakes, have you heard of this guy TD Jakes? He is a famous black pastor in the Dallas area. The Potter's House is the name of the church. And Reverend Jakes is under fire because he invited Robert Francis O'Rourke, the fake Mexican, Beto O'Rourke, to speak at the Potter's House. The politician thanked Jakes on Twitter saying it was an honor to be welcomed into the Potter's House by Bishop TD Jakes.
Thank you for having me at this morning's service. O'Rourke is currently campaigning to be the next governor of Texas. Now, my issue here is this. Bobby Francis O'Rourke, the fake Mexican, is an extremist on abortion. He believes that women should be able to abort their baby on the baby's birth date. So why is this guy being invited into TD Jakes' church?
Unless it's to repent of his sins. Beyond that, Bobby Francis believes that churches should be punished for holding what he considers to be extremist views on marriage and transgenderism. TD Jakes has been known for his leftist politics. He supported former President Barack Hussein Obama during that presidential run in 2008, and he described President Joe Biden during a 2021 inaugural address as hopeful and encouraging. In an interview with The Atlantic last year, TD Jakes shared his theological stances on abortion and same-sex marriage, and they would be similar to stances held by conservative Southern Baptist preachers, but explain that his differences with them politically is a matter of emphasis.
Really, is that what that is? And I'm just curious if there are any pastors out there listening to us, but would you allow a pro-abortion candidate to speak from your pulpit? Now, what I find fascinating about all of this, there's been nobody out there in the mainstream media condemning TD Jakes for opening up his mega-church to little Bobby Francis.
Not a one. But every time a conservative Republican, born-again Christian, steps into a church house, it becomes a major national news story. Christian nationalism! We're all the people talking about Christian nationalism here. We're all the people that are pooping their pants over the fact that there's an American flag in a church house in Dallas, Texas at the Potter's house.
Where are all the people raising concern about that? You see, it's all political, ladies and gentlemen. And by the way, if you have one of these woke, pronoun-hospitality preachers in the skinny jeans and they're wearing the face stubble and they use the five-point sermons and they're sipping from their, I don't know, pumpkin spice latte, and instead of sitting behind a pulpit, they're sitting on this stool with a little round table, like at some sort of a TED Talk. Your preachers are liberal. I hate to break it to you, but if your preacher's not talking about the big issues of the day and your preacher's out there saying, well, we all just have to get along and we just have to love people to the kingdom, no, that's not scriptural, ladies and gentlemen.
That's heresy. And you need to leave that church, or you can try to fix the church, or you can leave the church, but you need to do one or the other, because that's a big problem in this country right now. We've got lily-livered preachers in the pulpits of America, and I hate to say it, but it's true, and that's what's causing most of the problems in our country right now. And maybe one of these days I will name names, but it's very unfortunate. A lot of them are Southern Baptists, and that's my denomination, and that's embarrassing, but it's true. A lot of the mega churches in the area where I live in Memphis, Tennessee, oh my word, you say Republican and they get triggered.
I've never seen anything like it. The most important commandment is to love everybody, and that's it. Don't be talking about politics. Now, they'll talk privately about it. As a matter of fact, a lot of these folks, they get up in their pulpits and they're terrified to talk about anything that will cause offense to somebody, but then I'll get an email, I'll get a message privately saying, you know, Todd, I wish I really could speak out because I'm with you a thousand percent. Well, speak out. Don't be a coward.
Speak out. And by the way, I would rather, and this is what gets me about a lot of the evangelical Christians. You know, on the Democrat side, these preachers that are Democrats, they're not hiding the fact they're Democrats. As a matter of fact, they'll bring politicians up in the pulpit every Sunday.
I'm not a supporter of that, but all these Christians on the Republican side, they don't want anybody to know that they're a Republican. And that's cowardice, lily-livered cowardice. Just my opinion. We'll be right back, America. The Southern Border is a drug cartel war zone. Now they have sophisticated weapons, tanks, they're dropping explosives on their competitors right by the border. We've never seen this before in the history of the country. Border Battle shows a border crisis like never before with exclusive footage exposing the consequences of illegal immigration, drug trafficking, and decades of government neglect.
This will get worse before it gets better. Watch Border Battle from Turning Point USA. Download this shocking six-part series now at SalemNow.com That's SalemNow.com SalemNow.com And hello, America. Welcome to the Todd Starnes radio show, hour three, underway as we march to decision day across America.
Hope you're doing great wherever you are today. Want to welcome all of our great listeners on the Nevada Talk Network. We've got about eight or nine stations out there across the great state of Nevada. Our good friend Wyatt Cox, the program director and doing a terrific job out there. And we want to say hello to all of our Nevada listeners as well as our friends at WLOB, the big lobster in Portland, Maine, Ray Richardson country. By the way, folks, we are now two days away from concluding our radio thon for Alliance Defending Freedom and we need your help to raise money so that Alliance Defending Freedom can keep fighting these very important court battles.
They don't charge their clients a single penny and we're doing our part to raise money. You can do that by going to ToddStarnes.com and clicking on the Alliance Defending Freedom banner. Well, I want to go to the Patriot Mobile Usemaker line, a great American Patriot, the host of an incredible morning show, the number one morning show in the entire state of New Jersey. How do I know that?
I just made that up, but I know it's to be true. Harry Hurley, the host at WPG in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Harry, good to have you back with us. Todd, great to be on your program. It is the number one, right? Can we just agree? You never lie to your audience, so you have to be telling the truth.
Exactly, exactly. I have to ask, I'm assuming you're a Phillies fan. I am a New York Yankees fan at heart because my father was, but Phillies are second in my heart. I've been rooting for them all the way, and I would root for them unless they were playing the Yankees as they did in 2009.
I'm just curious. I mean, this is a long time since the Phillies have been in the World Series. What's the mood there in that area of the country? The mood is incredible, and if you even go to Alexa and ask who is going to win the World Series, Alexa has picked the Philadelphia Phillies. Now, the Astros are a great team. Phillies have to go there for the first two games starting tomorrow night. I like the Phillies' chances because they had to play until the last two games of the season to get in the playoffs. Then they had to play right away. They never had that long break. Got to give the Astros credit because they did have a break and they were able to dispatch their competition, but I like the Phillies' chances.
They're hot right now. This Bryce Harper was in the on-deck circle, and he said, let's give them something to remember. Then he stepped up and hit a two-run game-winning home run. Oh, by the way, just to clinch and secure your place into the World Series, Phillies are a team to be reckoned with right now. And apparently they're also racist, Harry Hurley. According to Sports Illustrated, they're noting that this World Series will be the first played without U.S.-born black players, marking the first time since 1950. And I suppose I'm asking on behalf of the entire nation, why is this even important and why is the World Series, why is Sports Illustrated even concerned that this is an issue? Well, this is one of the reasons why November 8th is going to be a great day in America.
Exactly. The President, his closing argument is if you want extra leg room and a plane and you're willing to pay for that, it's racist. Everything is racist to these lunatics.
It's true. And I think, again, this is a classic example of critical race theory in practice. You know, they say this stuff hasn't been being taught in our schools. I contend it's been taught for a very long time, and now that's why we're seeing all of this sort of practicum, a real-life practicum of critical race theory.
Everything is about race or gender. Well, as a former school board member, I can tell you, they used to do with stealth. They would teach this indoctrination, but it would not be in the actual curriculum for any parent to get to see. Now they came out of hiding.
It's in the curriculum. They're in your face with it. It's remarkable what has happened. Harry, I'm curious to know about what's happening in New Jersey as well as Pennsylvania. Just for the geography, you guys are not terribly far from the state line there, so you have a lot of folks that pay close attention to both states and their politics. Yeah, I mean, I'm literally sitting right now 40 minutes from Philadelphia. I mean, we're right next door. We share a common border. We're right over the bridge. New Jersey is a short conversation. There are 12 members of the House of Representatives from New Jersey.
Used to be more. We actually lost one. There are only two Republicans right now, but I guarantee here today on The Todd Starn Show, and we'll send you a note when about 9 o'clock, 10 o'clock, I don't even think you're going to have to wait very long, Tom Kane Jr., the son of the former great two-term governor, Tom Kane Sr., who as you know was the co-chair of the 9-11 committee with Lee Hamilton, that's when they really did a committee the right way of commission.
They had a Republican, they had a Democrat, they had equal numbers of each. This January 6th, I know your audience knows, is not a commission. It's a fraud.
It's a fakery. Tom Kane Jr. will defeat the incumbent Democrat Tom Malnowski in New Jersey's 7th district, I hereby decree it, I guarantee it, on The Todd Starn Show. Tom Kane Jr. lost by 1% back in 2020 in a zombie, all vote by mail election. He will win a week from this Tuesday. And by the way, we had Matt Towery on, and he's a terrific pollster, on with Hannity all the time.
He was on our show and he actually predicted what you just said as well, that Kane is going to win that New Jersey race. Why is it? What's going on? What's the mood of the electorate there in New Jersey? Well, the mood in this way, 2020 was a bad environment. You know, we had the basement Biden candidacy. We had the most intellectually dishonest media of all time. We had all kinds of voter regulations being changed, signature verification taken away, didn't have to be dated, can come in weeks later.
I mean, the environment could not have been any worse. And then just on its face, Democrats are better at early voting than Republicans have been. Hopefully that's been cleaned up a bit with the early voting disco round. So for Kane to only lose by 1% in a dark blue state to an incumbent, multi-time incumbent, under those circumstances, I predicted two years ago, Malinowski, enjoy your last term, you're done because Tom is a friend of mine, I knew he was going to run again, left his Senate seat to commit to running for the House and he's going to win. Harry, I remember back in 2021, and you were all over this story, the truck driver, Edward Durer, I know, who defeated the Democrat, not just any Democrat, he was the Senate president.
And I'm wondering if that was an early sign of what was to come and what is to come on November the 8th. Yes, and also two other seats in New Jersey that had been Democrat, three seats, one in the Senate and two in the Assembly, lower House, they changed. There's definitely a Republican mood in New Jersey and it wasn't all that long ago that there was a majority of Republicans in the majority of the legislative seats.
It's going that way. Republicans will pick up a number of seats next year when the entire state legislature, all 40 Senate seats, all 80 Assembly seats will be open. Republicans are getting closer and closer. They're one election cycle or so away from winning and then I know you probably covered him. Jack Chittarelli, who's also a very dear friend of mine.
He's been on the show a time or two. I know. He will be the next governor of the state of New Jersey.
Believe it or not, in the not too distant future, we won't be saying that New Jersey is a blue state. Wow. This is, it's exciting news, Harry. I mean, we've been talking about this for a long time and it's good to see people starting to rise up and say, you know what, we've got to take our country back and we've got to stop this and I think a lot of it is due in part to the shutdowns when Harry people got to see what their kids were being exposed to in those public school classrooms.
Oh my gosh, when parents got to see the classroom in action, they couldn't believe it. And then, of course, Terry McLaughlin was the gift that we have to always remember him at every major holiday because he should be sent gifts and cards and love because when he said parents have no right to have any say in what teachers are teaching their children, that was Governor Glenn Youngkin born that second. That's it. You're absolutely right. Can we please talk about what the heck is going on across the river from you guys? Geez, hello. I mean, I love my state.
You know that. You've been here. You've broadcasted in our state.
You've been our keynote speaker at our charity. You know how much I love New Jersey and how much I want to talk about it. I've been waiting to talk about this even more than my own home state.
This is a absolute unconditional freak show. You have literally the Philadelphia Inquirer, allegedly a major newspaper that actually came out publicly, their editors, their editorial page editors, editorial page writers, and all contributors, and they made a statement that they released that collectively they believe that John Fetterman won that debate. Now wait a minute. John Fetterman could not conjugate a verb. He couldn't string more than two or three words together. He said I've always supported fracking. Only he's never supported fracking.
Then Todd, he had the greatest. I've got to give the one debate moderator credit. She said, well, here, you said you have never supported fracking and you never will support fracking. And that's when he said, one of my favorite lines of all time, when he said I support fracking, I don't. I do support fracking. I support fracking.
And I stand and I do support fracking. That was his answer. And this guy thinks he can be one of 100, please. It's shocking. And the guy makes Joe Biden seem as eloquent as Ronald Reagan. I mean, that's how bad it is.
I can't remember, but it's somebody that we both know, it's a national figure, but they said yesterday that John Fetterman makes Joe Biden sound like Winston Churchill. There you go. There you go.
I mean, it's that bad. By the way, this is just coming in. Liz Cheney. By the way, Dr. Oz will win. I don't care what you hear, what Democrat poll comes out. Remember, when the Democrats are bragging that they're tied, that's what they're doing right now. It's high.
We're in a dead heat. You know they're losing because they've been oversampling by about 5% minimum. And I know you noticed this. I hope that your audience, which is very, very smart, picked up on this. Suddenly, Dr. Oz, during the entire debate, about 100 times was referred to as Mr. Oz.
It's a fair point. If I were Dr. Oz, I would have shown up for that debate in my white doctor's coat. That's what I would have done. Yeah, lab coat with his name, Dr. Oz on it.
Bring a medical kit just in case Fetterman went down. Yeah. Now think about this, Todd. We have to endure, and I respect it. I guess it's some kind of EDD, you know, a doctorate for whatever. We get hit with Dr. Jill Biden. She gets introduced to that. We have to honor that.
I'm okay with that. You're a doctor. I'll call you Dr. Biden.
But he's Mr. Oz. That's it. And nobody bats an eyelash about it. Nope.
Not a single person. It's all good. All right. Harry, we're up against the break here. So also, real quick, for a governor, how's Mastrianio looking? Not good. Not good. It should be a Republicans to win, Todd. They cooped them out.
They got them just with market saturation level coverage. I mean, second only to Laxalt. You know, Laxalt has faced $90 million of advertising, crushing him in a state with 3 million people. And he's going to win. I guarantee it. He's going to win. Mastrianio is not going to win. But Oz is.
All right. We've got you down here. Big race is coming up. And, Harry, we're going to check in with you between now and especially on Election Day. And this news coming in from Michigan. Liz Cheney endorsing Congresswoman Elisa Slotkin, who is a Democrat. This is the first time that Liz Cheney has crossed the aisle to formally throw her support behind a Democrat, according to the Hill.
And look at Murkowski endorsing a Democrat in the House. That's it. It is a disgrace. It is. Harry, great work as always. We appreciate you, my friend. An honor to be on The Todd Starn Show. Thank you, my friend. All right. WPG and radio in Atlantic City.
Got to take a break here. 844-747-8868. Again, a toll free telephone number. This is The Todd Starn Show. Hey, everybody.
Charlie Kirk here. The southern border is wide open. And we have to tell the world about it. Our team at Turning Point USA has been working over the last year to have a one-of-a-kind documentary all about the drugs, the guns, the crime, the criminals that are flowing across the southern border. Our team at Turning Point USA has been working so hard on this through amazing front-line footage that shows the Border Patrol agents, shows people crossing the border, the illegal drug trade, the economic and societal fallout that illegal immigration has on the United States.
Every single state is a border state. And we here being headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, want the rest of the country, want you all across America to see what we are living through in Arizona. It's a one-of-a-kind docuseries available exclusively on SalemNow.com. That is SalemNow.com. You guys will see the poorest southern border wide open and what we can do to solve it. If you want to learn about the border, this is your opportunity.
Brought to you by Turning Point USA available at SalemNow.com. All right, welcome back, everybody. I love Harry Hurley. That guy. You know, it's interesting.
The folks in Atlantic City, they're sort of a love-hate relationship with the folks who live in Philadelphia. And I had some relatives that lived in that area, my grandparents on my mother's side, many, many years ago. My grandfather was an Air Force glider pilot and went on to work for NASA. And then was summoned overseas to England where they lived for a number of years. And he worked on air traffic control systems and things of that nature.
So my family is sort of a big Air Force family. Anyway, they came back, settled in the Atlantic City, New Jersey area. And every summertime, all of the folks from Philadelphia would get on the trains and they would travel to Atlantic City and they would basically go to the beach. But they would always pack their lunches in shoeboxes. So they would, you know, I don't know why. I know I don't know why.
They just did. And so they called them shoebies. So whenever you're in Atlantic City in the summertime especially and you hear the locals talking about shoebies, they're talking about the folks coming over from Philadelphia.
Usually, and Grace Baker, this is sort of funny. When I would go down to visit the family, I would take Amtrak down to Philadelphia and then I would take the train from Philadelphia to Atlantic City. And it would be packed with people.
This would be like days, like during a weekday. It would be packed with people. It would be early in the morning and they're all senior citizens and they were heading to the casinos.
In Atlantic City. Hey, man. That early bird gets the worm. They had these huge purses and they were just filled with, I don't know, nickels and dimes. Maybe some other things. They hit the nickel slots down at the Golden Nugget.
That early, was it senior citizen, like early bird special? Yeah, exactly. Exactly.
So I, it is what it, but you know, but I will say this. I remember as a kid, you know, we would go, we would spend part of the summer back home in Memphis after we moved away. We'd spend half the summer in Memphis and then the other half of the summer in Atlantic City. Really? Yeah.
We'd hang out on the boardwalk and, you know, it's a lot of fun. So the Amtrak, I don't think I've ever been on the Amtrak. What's the difference between just taking like, I don't know, a regular train? Train?
Yeah. I mean, it's a train. You know, it's basically. It sounds fancy.
No, it's not fancy. It's filthy. It's Amtrak trains are filthy. Gotcha. Even first class on Amtrak are horrible. Fair enough. Well, maybe just keep flying Delta then, Todd. I'm just I'm just telling you.
It's so that's why it's, you know, the one time this is kind of funny. I was taking Amtrak. They shut down the trains. I think there was a train collision or something. So I had to get back to New York City. And the only other option was the the Greyhound bus. And it was sort of like I have to imagine the trip from, say, the border of Texas to Martha's Vineyard.
You're just living in fear of your life. Well, I don't think I've ever ridden. I've ridden. I've ridden on a bus before. But, you know, I was homeschooled growing up. So like I didn't even ride on a school bus. You were sheltered.
Yeah, I was sheltered. Well, we know Kamala Harris's favorite mode of transportation is school. That yellow school bus. She said who loves it.
She goes. Everybody loves to ride the school bus who who loves to ride the school bus. Your leadership, Mayor.
Thank you for the warm welcome. So here's the thing. Who doesn't love a yellow school bus? Right.
Can you raise your hand if you love a yellow school bus? Right. Just there's something about the and most of us, many of us went to school on the yellow school bus. Right. And it's part of it's part of our experience growing up.
It's part of, you know, a nostalgia and a memory. Those were the most uncomfortable buses, unless it's the magic school bus from the big green plastic seats and you can't do anything. It's horrible.
Again, I was home schooled, but I did watch magic school bus. So I don't think it's the same thing. I don't either. No, it's terrible. That was like a romanticized version of it.
Clearly. There's nothing romantic about a yellow school bus. We had a school bus driver back in the day, though.
Junior high school. His name was Sarge. And he used to smoke a cigar.
Get all the bus, kids. Shut up back there in the back. He's a great American. Sarge. I think he's dead now.
Probably lung cancer. All right. We got to go.

now to the Patriot Mobile newsmaker line a good friend of ours from Alliance Defending Freedom Matt Sharp joins us Matt hope you're doing good today doing great thanks for having me Todd and of course Matt we've got two more days before the radio thon for Alliance Defending Freedom is wrapped up and we've been encouraging our listeners to take a moment go to our website Toddsterns.com and click on that Alliance Defending Freedom banner and I want to ask you why is it important for our listeners to support the cause of ADF with every case ADF takes whether it's a phone call or demand letter all the way up to a case that takes years and goes to the US Supreme Court we don't charge our clients a single penny for our services and the only way we're able to do that to take these cases where sometimes we're going up against massive government entities or others with forms of attorneys is because of these donations large and small that able enable us to do that to defend religious liberty free speech parental rights and other freedom that help every American and and again you guys have been very successful at winning these cases as well going all the way to the Supreme Court we're talking about attorneys who could be working at some of the top law firms in America but you guys have decided there is something important about the ministry and the mission of Alliance Defending Freedom that's right you know we stand for these foundational freedom so for example we've got cases going on right now with parental rights of parents that are finding out that school officials are so-called socially transitioning their child this is where these kids are given a new name pronoun sometimes even school officials will bring in clothes for the kids to change into so that they can start identifying as the opposite sex we've got a case in Wisconsin on this where a 12 year old girl was being transitioned without the parents knowing or consenting and when they were found out about it they were shocked and confronted the school officials and said you can't do this you can't undermine our right to direct how we raise our daughter and the school officials just blew the parents off and said no we think we know better than you as the parents of what your daughter needs and it's cases like that that we're able to take and defend these families free of charge because we know that a win for those families in Wisconsin is a win for families across the country and you know Matt I was I really appreciate and respect the work you guys are doing especially for biological female athletes and and I suspect this is going to be a major battleground moving forward just a few days ago we shared the story on our radio station about a North Carolina volleyball player a transgender player on an opposing team spiked the ball in her face and she suffered injuries and now that school has says you know what we're just gonna have to forfeit our games I mean it's sad that that female athletes are being punished in this way simply because they're trying to compete and they want to be able to compete with other biological females that's right a lot of this started several years ago we were one of the first groups to represent female athletes these were four young women in Connecticut they were talented track and field stars and found themselves losing out to opportunities to championships because of two biological males they were allowed to compete in the female category and these young women between them you know numerous championships there's only over 15 championships that these two men captured 16 records that they broke over 80 instances where a young woman lost a spot on the podium or the chance to advance to the next round of competition because of these two males being allowed to compete and that's why we've got to stand firm we've got to push back against this gender ideology that's harming girls not only taking away their spots on the podium but as you mentioned it poses safety risk and this is one of many stories we've heard of young women even facing bodily harm of being hurt on the playing field because of men being allowed to compete Matt Sharp on the Patriot Mobile newsmaker line Matt what does the money go for our money goes to helping represent these individuals and so it is the filing fees the attorneys time everything that we're doing to take these cases to make them as successful as possible and litigate them all the way to the Supreme Court potentially and that's one of the things that we found again and again again people reach out to us and they're say we can't get any help the ACLU is not helping us no of these law firms are helping us and it's only because of generous support from listeners like yours that ADS is able to take these cases to represent these families these female athletes creative professionals artists and others that are having their rights violated their right to free speech or their right to fairness on the playing field violated and ADS is the only group out there representing these individuals free of charge taking these cases and litigating them to victory and and folks again if just a hundred of our listeners at this if you just take a moment a hundred of our listeners right now you donate a hundred dollars we surpass our goal so we need your help and all of that money tax deductible and if your first time giver to ADF they have a generous donor who's going to double your amount so we just need a hundred of you wherever you are to go to Todd's turns.com and click on the Alliance defending freedom banner and you'll be able to make that donation and again this is such a an important and worthwhile cause Matt we just appreciate the great work you guys are doing out there and it's an honor to be able to partner alongside of you guys this month as we raise this this money well we appreciate it Todd and we appreciate so many of your listeners that are supporting the work that we're doing as well because every dollar that they're giving is helping to secure these victories that yes it may be a young woman in Connecticut or parents in Wisconsin but it could be one of your listeners that happens next and that's why we're here to represent every one of them. All right so let's do this here folks 100 of you right now go to Todd Stearns.com and you donate a hundred dollars to the cause if you want to give more that's great if you can't give a hundred dollars you give what you can we want to do our part to let Alliance Defending Freedom know we have their backs as they're standing up and fighting for these young female athletes for the Christian Bakers and the wedding planners and the photographers all over America. Matt we're gonna leave it there we wish you the very best and we'll get you back on the air very soon. Sounds great thanks so much Todd. All right there you go Matt Sharp geez loop my apologies folks this weather is killing the voice here so I get a little choked up every now and again and Grace Baker thanks for the for the assist on the water. All right we're gonna take a quick break here but before we do there's been a lot of concern over at Twitter headquarters about Elon Musk and Musk says he's gonna what whack about 75% of the workforce that means that there's there are a lot of people there that don't need to be there and people are freaking out about this well it turns out someone literally got access to the building and they shared a video of what life is really like inside Twitter headquarters take a listen to the horrific horrendous conditions inside Twitter HQ. Welcome to a day in my life as a Twitter employee so this past week went to SF for the first time at a Twitter office badged in honestly took a moment to just soak everything in what a blessing also started my morning off with an iced matcha from the perch then I had a meeting so quickly scheduled one of these little pod rooms which were so cool they're literally noise canceling took my meeting got ready for a bunch look how delicious this food looks oh my goodness I was so overwhelmed then made my way down to this log cabin area I don't know what this is but it was really cool played some foosball with my friends to kind of unwind a bit also found this really cool meditation room that I thought was super neat I didn't do any yoga but they have this yoga room if you are a yogi so also thought that was really cool had a couple more meetings in the afternoon had a ton of projects that we needed to knock out so hey tatie mates went to the went to the library to kind of get some more work done obviously had to have our afternoon coffee so made some espresso and then before leaving for the day had some red wine on that's on tap went up to the rooftop and just honestly enjoyed the beautiful weather so awesome trip uh wait what huh grace maker can we get a meditation room no no we're not getting a meditation room what about a what they have what red wine on tap that's insane that sounds like it would make for I feel like everyone needs to take views of breath Eliza before driving home was that a mocha bar or matcha I couldn't match a tea or something like a latte and they have like these gourmet meals that are just provided to them free of charge oh my gosh no wonder poor Elon Musk is walking in there he's like what the heck is this I mean jeez Louise I think there's just a little excessive may I just say this is Generation Z in the Millennials you know I blame the Millennials cuz they're the bosses here okay so you're it's the Millennials yes alright because I'm telling you back when I started out in journalism there was if you wanted a coffee you got like a little styrofoam cup yeah and you got this cheap watery coffee you're not getting some $10 Starbucks thing no no way I mean don't get me wrong community coffee is good here but that's our lot it's not like a latte machine or anything but it's like a froth or something right yeah I mean if you want to froth you can shake it up or something I don't I mean jeez aloo but we don't even have a chick-fil-a bar here at the media group I think I'm gonna have to go on strike because clearly you're depriving us Todd do we do yoga here I saw some goats in the backyard no so we can do goat yoga let's do downward dog are they domestic what is a downward dog it's a yoga position oh I got kicked out of yoga once when I was younger I took it in college the half moon turned into a full moon it was very bad very inappropriate so you're talking so did the goats have to be domesticated for goat yoga I mean you just imagine so because you start doing the poses and they hop on top of you you know the goats are making fun of them do they know that I don't know I don't know a lot about goats but I'm just saying it's all for the photographs so what it so these people are living in the lap of luxury and all they're doing is sitting there monitoring all the conservatives saying got a ban this person whoop got a man that person and see we now understand when the purge has happened Todd it's when they've been drinking the red wine for a few hours and they're like a thousand people it's late in the day late in the day that's why it happens in the late hours well it could it could very well be but I have noticed that a lot of companies now have these perks you know where they have the wine bars and they have the the massage rooms and matcha tea and all that kind of stuff latte machine people back it you know back when I was back when I was going through the early days of my career we were satisfied just to get a paycheck well also did you hear she's like oh I reserved like a pod room and was hanging out with I guess her co-workers and unwinding I'm like unwinding from what you haven't gotten wound up yet yet you haven't gotten wound up I don't understand you know what Fox News may I just say that for the old 12 years no 13 years of my of my time at Fox News in that beautiful tower it was basically a ghetto I mean it was the conditions were filthy inside that building and you know why because we were more focused on getting a good product out on the air they didn't want us to be comfortable and so then Roger Eels leaves and Fox and and then he passes away and the new management came in and we all got emails saying we're creating we're renovating the building and we're gonna have two floors dedicated to on-air talent and so I got an email and they said you are hereby summoned to a meeting with the architects and the interior designers fancy and I I go up there and they have mock-ups made of the three or four different office styles you could choose from and it was like do you want carpet do you want hardwood floors what kind of furniture paintings desks what kind of a chair do you want oh it's great so finally get up there and it's like I mean I've never seen anything like this before but you have you have cereal bars and you like you could they have like these bagels whatever you want is there for you Wow sounds like a resort it was unbelievable I loved it I had a great view of 6th Avenue and 48th Street so I had right you see right there Radio City Music Hall right out my window sounds like some people got a little too comfortable though clearly but it is what it is but there you go Twitter headquarters so all the kids that are thinking oh whoa is me

the candidates to you a lot of the pollsters we're gonna have Matt Towery back our friends over the Trafalgar group are gonna be back with us and also big big pundits from all over America all right 844-747-8868 that is our toll-free telephone number that's 844-747-8868 got this item in earlier today and we've got the story up on the website PayPal has decided to reverse itself they have reinstated this punishment for users who spread what they would consider to be inaccurate or misleading information now we don't know if they've got somebody on staff that makes that determination but it's not good if you are a conservative anyone who violates the policy gets fined $2,500 per violation now if you you say well wait a second how is that gonna work so PayPal if you have an account you know that you have to give them your financial information so you have a bank account or you have a credit card or a debit card and it's attached to that account so if they determined that you have violated their policy on misinformation they'll just they'll just charge you 2,500 bucks per violation now a couple of weeks ago when PayPal originally said they were gonna do this the stock just plunged like 6% in one day and it's down 55% for the entire year so what did PayPal do well they apologized and then they reversed course well now they've reinstated that punishment so a lot of people are very confused about this David Marcus is the former president of PayPal and he condemned the original fines and said it goes against everything he believes it again a private company now gets to decide to take your money if you say something they disagree with folks if you have a PayPal account I and also Vimeo because or Venmo rather they also own Venmo so you need to figure out a different way to pay your bills because PayPal is not your friend and heaven forbid some poor conservative shares something and PayPal says oh that's misinformation boom you owe us 2,500 bucks so if I were you I would go in there and and I would delete my PayPal account and I'm planning on doing mine after the show today what you need to do first before you cancel your account you need to remove all of your credit card information from the PayPal account all right folks we got to get out of here hey Todd Stearns dot-com check it out great stories we have the PayPal information for you there as well be
