Being a Texan, Ted Cruz is an embarrassment. I wish there was a way for all these idiots that refuse to do anything towards climate change that they could sign an agreement stating that they have to get at the back of the line for any help and they for have to forfeit their fortunes to go to climate change and funds that support a sustainable future. This includes their direct heirs. No insurance company should give them a policy for any loss due to climate change.. I'm sorry but enough is enough.

This is an email I sent to (not my) Senator Josh Hawley on December 30th. He deserves the corporate shunning he's currently receiving and removal from office. Sent: 12/30/2020 10:43:33 PM To: "webmail@hawley-iq.senate.gov" Cc: Subject: Your objection to the Biden/Trump election results The Honorable Josh Hawley United States Senate Washington, DC 20510 Dear Senator Hawley, Please reconsider your decision to object to the results of the 2020 presidential election. Doing so embarrasses you and our state. Frankly, it makes you appear like a rednecked, backwoods hillbilly, as well as, the rest of us Missourians. Reasonable people in our nation and the world know that there isn't any good excuse to continue the charade that the election was stolen from Donald Trump. Please don't make a laughing stock of yourself and Missouri through a time wasting, frivolous action that won't change the outcome of anything. Resctfully, Pamela J Reynolds

... another reason that both the GOP and the Dems should want Trump impeached, Bryan, is because if he is not barred from holding public office the 2024 election write-ins for him could possibly thwart all parties efforts to help put this problem permanently behind us.

BTC is a no-nonsense, incisive digger of truth. Grab a shovel & give him a listen. He gets great, hi-calibre guests on a regular basis, such as Adam Schiff, who obviously has much respect for BTC. He has great chemistry with most of his guests & the discussions are meaningful & focused. A great listen.

First, I have never followed politics as much as I have this year. I watched your debate with Tomi L. When she brought up how democrats in 2016 were claiming fraud in election, I think that is very different from whats going on now. We have sitting President that is pushing fraud/stolen election. When was the last time a sitting President claimed stolen election, and lost so many court cases? With his amount of influence on his supporters that has a very different dynamic. All that has happened is not because of a particular party claiming fraud/stolen election but the President himself.

Brian, you asked how evangelicals so overwhelmingly support Trump. I will say there are not enough negative adjectives that I can use to tag to Trump and to say that our democracy is at threat already in his actions and administration. Normally Republicans don't have a candidate that is so repulsive in making a decision to stay with the party. But with Trump they do, so why stay? My thoughts, it's the issue of abortion and honestly, with so many, that issue alone. They consider it a Kingdom issue and will not go against what God holds so precious. Other issues such as racism, poverty, pandemics, climate change are social issues and they will let those be in the hands of God. Even after Amy Coney Barrett was rushed to fill Notorious RBGs vacancy, they only saw that as a reinforcing victory to God's plans. Until Evangelicals are taught that the Bible doesn't say anything about abortion, or that abortion policy is more affected at the State level, I think that Republicans will keep their vote. They need educated and convinced, I've looked at both sides and there is so much out there that pushes a pro-life agenda without all the facts. A few other considerations is the alternative lifestyles and the liberal educational teachings that have taken God and prayer out of the schools. Anyway, .... my thoughts :) I love your you tube and podcast episodes!
