Good morning welcome to our broadcast on this Thursday it to be back with you hope all is well in your worlds. I like to start off with good news. And we've had a couple pieces of good news or when you share with you. You're already quite familiar. With a rescue took place. In a cave in Tyler where you made no. One of the participants in that rescue. Was major Charles Hodges the US mission commander for the 353 special corporation unit for the air force. Part of that rescue operation in Thailand why is this a big deal. Well it's because it's. Major Hodges is a native of winds Borough. Fairfield County South Carolina. And went to the citadel. Pretty cool to learn that he was involved in this particular mission. Twelve boys and their soccer coach were rescued from a flooded cave. They're reported to be in good condition recovering in hospital. After eighteen days. In that cave eighteen days. What's really scary about this. We're learning recently. The final four boys in the coach were rescued just in time. Just hours after the last boy was pulled out the main water pump in the caves malfunctioned. Sending water rushing yen. This can have an awful absolutely. Awful. Or is the brits or is the brits would say this would have been dreadful. In all seriousness. Major Hodges. From Fairfield County South Carolina. Describes the tense moments leading up to the final rescue. He participated in an interview. On CBS this morning here are his captain's. Well three of the seals there's for them back their three of them made their way into cheaper three in about the same time we got the word that the pumps that been running nonstop. Shut off for an unknown reason in the water levels back in chamber three started rising which would of caught off or access back to chambers. 21 and then I'm decayed. And that's and abort criteria for our guys and so when that water level started rising every bodies are grabbing their kids and their radiant heat get out thankfully that. Last seal popped up at the last moment and everyone is able united cheaper three safely and make their way out and mission complete it was is a really exciting ending to an awesome. Should or can you just imagine this I mean this is the kind of thing that he in action adventure movie is made out. You know how a person has pulled out just how many times have you seen that the movies. We're somewhat pulled out at just the right moment. To avert disaster. Well that's exactly what happened here we just leave him this. Where's describing these chambers. Chambers three. The water levels are going up. And once that starts happening. You're cut off. And and they're using this word. Major Hodge is using this word. Abort as the possibility that they have to pull the plug on this thing. My goodness. It is absolutely disturbing to think how this could've turned out. And seem to we're very thankful not only for the greed in. But also. Very much proud. Of someone from here in the Carolinas playing a significant role in this. Life saving mission. I thought you would find that encouraging. By the way before I go to the other good story. Let's have a little more fun. With their friends at Babylon AD. I love this. Because this really gets to the heart of the profound stupidity. Of what's taking place their culture. I've said this before. And let me say it again and I will say this a million times. There is no such. Thing. As toxic masculinity. Any more than there's any such thing as toxic. Femininity. These are gifts from god. And yet. They are being denigrated. You know if you notice. Feminism. And in this in this word Mickey distinction being female. And having. Characteristic of a female. Characteristics of a male there's nothing wrong with those things in and of themselves. It's when you put this ism thing about it where things become toxic. And no one will dare talk about feminism. And how toxic it has been for our culture because idiots. That's the irony this is where projection takes place. You draw attention to something. Elsewhere. When reality the thing it's right in front of your face is the real threat the fun we're having year. Is a babble on beat proposed Huffington Post criticizes Thai Navy SEALs. For displaying toxic masculinity. During daring cave rescue. As the world came together to celebrate rescue twelve boys and their coach trapped in a cave in Thailand for over two weeks. The Huffington Post at the opportunity to call out the Thai Navy SEALs who performed a dangerous extraction mission for their. Toxic masculinity. In an article published on the site. The post toxic news division criticized several elements of the seal rescue we showing. Deeply ingrained. Problematic. Federal nor masculinity. There's no way to billion years I can use that phrase again. A a a a a a this is just typical says gender toxic masculine behavior. Going added showing off their macho bravado by risking their lives to save some young boys the article stated really. It's 28 team were still tied down to traditional gender roles. The these poor boys were exposed to extremely harmful example of Hough she's toxic masculinity throughout the rescue. This needs to stop like now. The article further criticized the seals for May and explaining their rescue plan to reporters and journalists. Man spreading their legs to propel themselves through the underwater passage ways. And may interrupting. When they politely informed reporters. At the stopped talking so they could go save the boys. At publishing time opposed to written a second article criticized the group divers. For appropriating the culture. Of Oceanic seals. Is great. I oppose this on the FaceBook page. For one of 63 WRD and four WBT. This is great stuff yes this is a parody site people is little areas. Making fun of the stupidity. Of the left. And what they're trying to do to destroy our. Human culture. That's what they're trying to do. Let's have fun with the process 14 minutes after 10 o'clock. 19 minutes after 10 o'clock Vince Coakley radio program. I do hope you thoroughly enjoyed that it's babble on deep post and it is now available for you to share with friends. It's on the WBT FaceBook page as well as the 163 W or. This is 1 of them I am I think it's one of the most effective ways to communicate ideas. Is there satire. And Babylon BP has. Excelled at this in fact Charles I've got a call you out and put you on the spot. I I've already reached out to visa folks at. Babb a book Babylon beads try to get them on the program so I would love for Uga. Doubled down on this and try to get them to come I would love to talk with someone with that organization. They are just absolutely yeah skillful. The things that they write and and it's it's very effective it's not just satire about politics it's about religion as well. Dan's. I I can't think of one single Babylon the post that I have read. That I have. You know be an uncomfortable with in the sense that. Philosophically. You know they've got to be right because they agree with me. A I've got to tell you there's one or two that really caused me to. To wince a little bit. Because it went a little too coat close to home and I'm at some point gonna talk more about this. Because there are some beings. Let me just put it this way. If you wanna hint about some of the things that I'm beginning to address. Well just think of the call we had yesterday. I do not remember her name but she called yesterday. And one of the things that she shared was. Her own reckoning with. I I don't know how else to say it other than idolatry. It was Chantal. Ants are recognizing some of these areas in my whole life as it relates to politics. But this is gonna decide an overnight thing it's been a process. Where are recognized that. Gap cap and I was really. It and it sometimes when you see some of these things you think well this went too far. And it's. The truth of the matter is it it really was a couple of their post pros have been very conflicting. I just put it that way. Let's go out to a call for re good morning welcome to the broadcast drink. Good morning how are you don't demand our rights there. Where and what little was the writer of that straw it was 80. Yeah. I don't know I doubt it I'd think the editor is male. I don't know in this one of things I'd love to find out is he have a staff of people working with him or is this just one person I I don't know. Well not my. Solution doll isn't it is that we now have our round up all appropriate and her mama or grandmother daughter whatever. And and the next Campbell we have a situation like it let them be more than welcome to go in there should respect could possibly get. We do know this is parity don't you re that would that was the whole point is this a parity this is not a serious. Writing here and Owens truly advocating such stupidity publicly. Although. There are people you kind of wonder about but I do appreciate your call and again that's one of the dangers of this is so often people are how many times I've post Babylon be things on my social media page and how many times people have. Only if reacted as if it's real news and it's not. So just keep him. I wanna tell you about something else going on at this hour. Ants I I will have some things to say about this I've talked about this along the way. IA have a great deal of skepticism about where this is going to ago. Right now there is say committee hearing that's taking place the house judiciary and oversight committee. Very actually he interviewed. Peter struck you remember him he's that FBI agent. Who had the little fleeing going on with the other FBI agent. And put out some anti trump things. Well right now. There is a public hearing that's taking place. Now by the way mr. struck for his part is said let me be clear unequivocally and under oath not once in my 26 years of defending my nation. Did my personal opinions impact any official action I took of course it. This was from a draft of a statement. That was obtained by CNN the fact is after months of investigations there's simply no evidence of bias in my professional actions. So this year in going on right now. Ands. If there's anything interesting that transpires. Today we will certainly let you know let me reiterate what I've said before. And I will repeat it again. Most of these congressional hearings are profound. Waste of time. And I honestly expect the same year. So what you beat this guy out. Publicly give my public flogging. Verbally. Who cares. At the end of the day it accomplishes zero. Now I'm sure there are people out there opening for hoping for some sort of capture a moment. Where this guy reveals there's political bias and the whole purpose was to take Donald Trump down blah blah yadda yadda yadda yadda and then people will spend hours upon hours on this. And those who do that they are perfectly. You know capable hands. Welcome to do that. I'm net interest it. Because at the end of the day. This is likely to accomplish. Absolutely. Nothing. Just grandstanding for a bunch of politicians. Were trying to look relevant relevant and trying to look important. Like they're accomplishing something. I would much rather. All of these politicians. Focus their attention on something constructive like how we can balance our budget. And stop overspending. Or if you have concerns about what is taking place in the FBI and other agencies pass some legislation to make changes. Call for the president to do some mass firings. Where there is incompetence. Or where there is malfeasance. Takes a definitive action. But these hearings. I'm just not very optimistic. That they will do much other than read people. Now if you have a different view ID. Respect that's. And you are free to share a year. I think it's really sad the way. And discuss the heart. Of what I'm talking about here I wonder five times this probably not before the break after the break. Sure if you approached and this is from a very much it my understanding libertarian minded kid I meant. As a kid is much younger than me. I wish part of reform. And the UNC Charlotte campus probably spent a couple of years ago. And this very bright young man. And he's I think either visiting or living in another country temporarily now. By all. Understanding I would have this kid very much patriot loves America. I was very intrigued by post he put out yesterday. And get a share that with you. Because buy in and like this that I'm becoming increasingly. Convicted about. Some of the unhealthy mind sets that. We can so easily cultivate. And you'll understand what I'm talking about when I share that. As we continue to broadcast 29 minutes after 10 o'clock. 36 minutes after 10 o'clock on the Minsk. He radio program. I'm the text line and had been living under a rock why did the tide soccer team go into a cave to begin. My understanding is this was because. They were trying to find refuge away from floodwaters or some sort of claim any of the sort that was my understanding. This is something. They need to look up and find out with the you know its interest in this story got a lot of traction once people once these these guys with the year. But the original. Reason they were fair and all of those circumstances. Not so much. On the text look I love this. Do we know what the rescued boys identify as. A seriously this is. You raise a very good question this is the kind of thinking we've got there. And I new year just poking fun that. I hope Charlotte loses its bid for the RNC Democrats are ready morally bankrupt there's no sense of them benefiting financially from. That we each they hate. And today. So the left believes Navy SEALs are mainly who knew. Cheers. Let's see here when they look they could not find it transgendered LG BT snowflakes that could do the rescue. Thank you Vince for telling us this was a parity by head was fixing to start spinning and explode a man that was close for me NTE a a a a charity events that wasn't a parity that really don't laugh it could be our future. I get it I know what you're talking this is the point this is why there he is so effective because it. Brio the he would really. Highlights the stupidity. Of the philosophies that unfortunately mini. But the funny thing is these Babylon these guys sound like true progressive social justice warriors. They could easily be mistaken for the real thing yet. And we have this wonderful Jim you're still a jerk Vince thank you godly issue to you. Other person you're absolutely rude to all your listeners yesterday and I intend to tell all your advertisers. Really. Rude to all your listeners see I'm always. From a logical standpoint I'm always very suspicious of people who make sweeping statements like this. Be rude to all of my list to Kirk so this is great stuff I mean really. Vince I nearly laughed until I cry when I read Babylon bees Jesus detained at border during second coming brilliant writing. Mark out of rock or a yeah. Vince yesterday what Shepard Smith uses entire showed a bad stroke and treat him like the utter enemy his goes to make him look unstable. Why does he still have airtight. Your thoughts. Ask the people at fox that question I cannot answer that because. I mean obviously still has an audience that's why. While Vince so congressional oversight and holding DOJ and FBI accountable for overreach is an important few. Did say that. Did I say that no I said. I think peace public hearings most of the time are a waste of time that's what I said. Oversight great holding people cannibals great can you show me somebody at just pick anybody in history. The new show me somebody in recent history who has been held accountable in any any way other than maybe being fired. Which could have been done without a congressional hearing in fact in fact congressional hearings probably had nothing to do with it. Can you find one example if you can please show me show me one of them. I would love. To your example. Author of politically incorrect. Illegal immigration states the Catholic churches under government contracts taking millions of taxpayer money. To housing care for illegals won't say you folks need to know. Hey they're giving the money I mean this is what's frustrating about this. Why is this money being given out in the first place. Why. There are so many tentacles here. And this is more big government issue. The other issue regarding the church that's something for the church and for the people who are putting the money and ends. Participating. They're gonna have to answer. For meat. My immediate question comes to taxpayer. Dollars again. And who's making those decisions to allow this to happen. That would be my response. No Vince we are now freely shared differences of opinion on your show. Personally been referred you as a Kool Aid drinker and stupid just for simply share a different point of view. You know it's and your listeners hear it. I know they're gonna complain about my voice the way I express that you. Yes you are free to share your differences of opinion you're not simply allowed to run and ramble off. And use. You know just basically in into just insult the host. Or just say vapid things that have no meaning whatsoever without being challenged if that's what you're looking for. There are plenty of other places where you can do that. There's plenty of rain let's talk radio there I don't mind saying that. There are plenty of places where you can bowel down to the great orange dot. If that's what you believe it don't fort. I don't to a here. This is hilarious Vince is it true that the tight baby seals are going to do a much or me and beef cake calendar. Resilience you know as a flex their muscles. Next the reality show. That would be absolutely hilarious. I need to quickly get to this because I told you I would. Christopher posted this libertarian kid America's one of the greatest countries in the world there are things America that are great there are things America that are awful. There are a lot of other countries. That are also some of the greatest in the world there are things that are great their things their awful in those places as well for that reason. Saying America is the greatest in the world especially when you have never seen anything else doesn't really make sense. If you really wanna get fussy. You can look for the human freedom index which ranks countries based on their economy personal freedom. Switzerland past Hong Kong for the first time ever. For the number one spot America barely east weak in the top twenty. What's the point in my mini rant. Get your passport go see and experience other places before asserting. That what you know. What's best. Tell you experience something different you'll never truly know. Travel make you appreciate not only what's so great about other countries and cultures. But it would help you appreciate some things about your country and cut and culture even more. Travel broadens the mind if you're willing to open yourself up to it. That's from Christopher. Who again. Person I have no doubt as patriot. Libertarian loves America. This is not to say anything. To denigrate the United States of America there's nothing in here that does that. But I do think we need a great deal more humility. Is I tell you. I don't care where where it is. Every single kingdom on this earth one day is going to come to an end and there's only one that will prevail. And no human being will come out on top keep that in mind. Oh get a new trend is going on the text line and you're not rude to meet is the the new message doubted that slide. Someone takes early years said a U. You were rude you're entire audience yesterday. Dispersant said you're read to me and ski boat great work. There's another win here then you work rude to me. A his mettle and Dan is saying you were not rude to me yesterday now is your chance. I assure me to work on that okay I'll see if we're going to be route Chris good morning welcomed the broadcast. Good morning and right sir. Hey listen I I had the good fortune of going to Guatemala. In working in my church but I'm building a church there. Pop I was in I grew up with and in the Marine Corps for twenty years I get it done oh America saying that. I remember being in Guatemala. And for the first time. I might get that might give like people are maybe. India or just the word that. Maybe dislike the United States especially if they're sick and they means. In getting. That is understandable how does that have impact Q were you in spending some time in another country and coming. Some perspectives. That that example that I remember seeing in the mall go to the military and ill gotten a little Toyota truck. In the pouring down rain standing up in the back of the truck calling card border there as one big piece cart or they're going to work. Well it certainly gives you a greater appreciation for you have doesn't. Most definitely and I I appreciate you certainly don't fantastic job thank you. Thank you thank you very much appreciate that Chris and I think they share with you yesterday the day before just my experience every time we come back from eighty. Just how I mean just things like warm. How Watters take showers and that these basic things like that we take for granted so much to be thankful for. We're gonna listen to a little bit of testimony taking place right now. In between the a blow beating from politicians. Let's listen you FBI agent Peter struck honestly. And independently. And that's exactly what happened. I'm also proud of our work on the Russian interference investigation. This is an investigation into a direct attack by a foreign adversary. And it is no less so simply because it was launched against our democratic process. Rather than against a military base. This is something that all Americans. Of all political persuasions. Should be alarmed by. In the summer of 2016. We had an urgent need to protect the integrity of an American presidential election. Among hostile foreign powered determined to weaken and divide the United States of America. This investigation is not politically motivated. It is not a witch hunt it is not a hoax. I expected during this hearing I'll be asked about that ongoing investigation. With the FBI has directed me not to answer I will abide by the FBI's instructions but let me be clear. This is not because I don't want to answer your questions. If I were permitted to answer I would. And it answers would doubtless be disappointing to the questioners and undermine the conspiracy narrative being told about the Russian investigation. I understand reliving and a political error in which insults and insinuation often trial about honesty and integrity. But the honest truth is that Russian interference in our elections constitutes a grave attack on our democracy. Most disturbingly. It has been wildly successful. Sowing discord and our nation and shaking faith in our institutions. I have the utmost respect for Congress's oversight role but I strongly believe today's hearing is just another victory not in Putin's belt. And another milestone in our enemies campaign to tear America apart. As someone who loves this country in cherishes its ideals is profoundly painful to watch and even worst player apart. Mr. chairman I welcome questions. We will now proceed under the five mineral with questions I begin by recognizing the chairman of the oversight member committee for many mister Gatti. And we Sherman on May distraught the FBI investor. You. It's drafted the originating document. You approve the originating document you were the point of contact all of the originating. Document and the FBI has represented to congress that nothing from an investigative standpoint. With respect to Russian collusion and the trump campaign began before July 31 26 today. But ten days before the investigation even began ten days before you're drafted the originating document approved the originating document will appoint a contact on the originating document ten days before the investigation began. Which stood apartment you work for says nothing was done before July 34 hours. You said trump is a disaster I have no idea how destabilizing. His presidency. Would date. And because you struggled a couple weeks ago would award fall a commonly accepted definition I'm gonna go ahead give you the definition of destabilizing. The first one kind of is obvious it's to make unstable. The cycle when called my attention the second dictionary definition. To call something such as they government to be incapable of functioning or survived. That's a pretty significant allegation to make ten days before you even began to investigate. So more. So outpost before July 31. All last year and that first week. We'll go ahead and open to eight days between July 31 and August 8. How many interviews that you conduct related to the alleged collusion between Russia in the truck get back. So congressman as you know. Counsel for the FBI based on the special counsel's equities. Has instructed me not to answer quite OK here we go beat you you're gonna hear that Allied's. My goodness. We're in so much trouble. Are numbered two is straight ahead.
