  1. Victor & Jack

    It’s always a pleasure to listen. I always learn something new. My husband has the same truck as you, Victor. I thought it was so great I was going to trade in my V8 2016 Ford F150. Thanks to you, I won’t be proceeding with that plan.

    Jack you are my favorite host but you are too conciliatory, always couching your remarks so as not to offend anyone. I saw to heck with that. I think we are all tired of these bullies who take offense no matter what we say. Just say what you think Jack. Victor’s audience is the smartest out there. We understand what you perfectly.

    Also, Gavin IS going to be the Dem Nominee.

    I have it on VERY good authority. Biden will drop out for health related concerns. IDK what they’re doing with Kamala the Rambler.

    Recall if you will, every Dem dropped out of the race in 2020 to ensure Joe got the nomination. Never doubt their loyalty to The Party.

    If Joe can hold up, they’ll wait until Trump secures the nomination to make the switch.

    Please talk about this possibility of it being Newsom Republicans are running against not Joe. perhaps people might make a different choice for the Republican Ticket.

  2. Regarding Purgatory –

    1. Purgatory is not a biblical concept, not found in Scripture.

    2. Purgatory is found in the Apocrypha which was written between the writings of the Old and New Testaments and incorporated into the Roman Catholic canon in 1546 A.D.

    3. Jesus, the Apostles, Jews, Josephus, Philo, and the New Testament writers did not recognize the Apocrypha as Scripture.

    4. Only the death of Jesus can cleanse men from their sins. God’s acceptance is not based upon good deeds and making up for bad deeds, including through Purgatory.

    5. Men should be worried about being acceptable to God if they believe their status before God is based upon how they have lived. (Romans 3:23, all fall short of God’s righteousness)

    6. Romans 6:21-25a But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it- the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is not distinction: for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith.

    7. Men must turn to Christ as Lord and Savior through faith. (Romans 10:5-13)

    1. Dear Peter,
      Why is it recorded in the old testament “praying for the dead”? May they or may they not require our prayers? If souls go directly to heaven then what need do they have for prayers? It seems that there may be souls that need our prayers – so where are they? Not in heaven and not in hell.
      What do you think?

      1. Hi John,

        Thanks for your inquiry. Is there a scripture that you are thinking about? Here are a few which speak of death or the separation of the departure of the soul from the body and the finality of judgment for the departed.

        2 Corinthians 5:6-8 …We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord…we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord.

        Philippians 1:21-23…to live is Christ, and to die is gain…live in the flesh, that means fruitful labor for me…My desire is to depart and be with Christ, for that is far better.

        Hebrews 9:27 And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment.

  3. In the Bowman case, no one is mentioning that the arresting officer’s description in the police report and the Bowman’s actions in the video do not match. The Capitol Hill officer is covering for Bowman.

  4. Why record on Sunday then put the podcast out on the web and the Blade of Perseus website Wednesday. Love the analysis the professor provides but getting it 3 days later provides outdated information in this fast changing world.
    Being a news junkie most of the discussions with Jack are old news. Some great analysis but old news

  5. The great danger of self-driving cars is not the technology. It is the ultimate “Big Brother’/control tool. How do you get your self-driving car to take you to a liquor store? You input the address (verbally or manually). Great! the car has to contact a satellite or other device to take you there and the government knows that you went there on Monday at 3:30PM. And again on Thursday and Sunday. Where else do you go and who is also going to the same address at the same time? Suppose the government decides that you shouldn’t visit Yellowstone Park? Or take more than one vacation for every (fill in the blanks period)?

    1. Yes. The fourth Amendment protects us from unreasonable search and seizure. Perhaps I’m wrong, but it seems to me that some of this electronic following and watching is an unreasonable search of our private lives. And if you are in a car that the government can control in order to control you; to me that is an unreasonable seizure. Not being in your home doesn’t mean you are available to government or other entities without due cause. We do many things that are highly private but can’t be done at home,of course. We need to be alert as to what privacy incursions are being planned, and whether we wish to tolerate them. I don’t like the car thing.

    @47:22 Or one push down a flight of White House stairs, when no one is looking.

    When Biden and Harris attained their offices, I half suspected that Harris would see that Biden meets with an “accident”, as in an episode of “Murder, She Wrote” or “Matlock”.

    1. They can’t get rid of Biden that fast. It will have to wait until after the Democratic National Convention and right up close to the election when the dems get their new “Biden’ in office. Biden will have until a few minutes before inauguration day to pardon himself and his entire family.

  7. VDH, Regarding Obama’s latent antisemitism: Don’t forget the photograph of a smiling Obama beside Louis Farrakhan that was revealed only after his presidency.

    1. I don’t care for Farrakhan and his sick hatred of Jews. But I do know of some Black Muslims who don’t want to follow that prejudice. From what I know of the group. not a lot; they are well dressed people ;often in business attire. They are interested in productive work, and very supportive of one another as both men and women pursue goals of higher education, jobs. They are law abiding. I have been thinking that if Farrakhan is out of the pic, maybe they are one way to make inroads into changing some of the violent behaviors in some areas.

    Thank you for calling out Kennedy for what he is-a big-government liberal. Dare we say a Leftist/Progressive? It makes me sad that so many people who are not liberals, Leftists, Progressives gush over him as a candidate. And as a republican (small-r), it bothers me that so many people get enthusiastic over him simply because he’s a Kennedy. Dynasties are incompatible with constitutional republics.

    The very idea makes me flash back to “I, Claudius”, the death of Tiberius, and how the senators gushed over Caligula. “A son of Germanicus!” Yes beware of dynasties, however attractive they may appear.

    But, I guess it’s human nature. The founders knew it well and warned us that we would have to, each of us, master our nature to maintain a free republic.

    So I’m not surprised, just saddened.
