TODD STARNES: [01:12:49] I’m not going to name the insurance company here, but this insurance company, they’ve got tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of people who have policies. All of us got the same letter that said, Hey, if you are suffering side effects from the China virus vaccine, and they list all of the problems, including liver problems, kidney problems, cancer and a number of mostly heart related issues. Then you are eligible to receive a 10 percent discount on whatever. I mean, that’s not just a random thing. That tells me that something else is going on here. I want to go to Salem, Oregon. David wants to weigh in on the situation with the military, listening to us on K-Y-K-N. And David, what do you know? [01:13:40][51.4]
DAVID: [01:13:41] Yeah, good day, Todd. Hey, I just want to let the listeners know, December 17th, this past year, our son, he finally came home, and this all started in June of this past year of 2021. When he went in, he wanted to serve his country in the army. And, you know, it was a childhood dream of his, going in as a 24-year-old to serve, and he’s a smart, white, Christian conservative. So, to your question, Todd. Why do they want to get these young men and women out? Because it’s a ruse to get out people who are going to stand up and fight, and in the meantime, they are focusing so much on the words they now transform; the true meaning of equity of “wokeism.” That’s the focus. And now, we’re getting off mission about national protection and defense. Of course, we want to treat people fairly, but they have just taken this and turned it upside down. But, we’re so grateful our son got out. He was one of 11 out of 3,000 at a base in Arizona that stood up and said I am not going to do this to my body. And so, we’re grateful, but we’re sad at the same time. [01:15:12][90.7]
STARNES: [01:15:12] David, did he receive an honorable discharge at all or a dishonorable discharge? How do they handle that? [01:15:18][6.1]
DAVID: [01:15:19] Oh, see even that, my friend. He was threatened at Leavenworth, with Court Martial, and everything, and he got out. And even with the news that was being leaked out there about dishonorable discharges. He got out with an honorable. [01:15:40][21.3]
STARNES: [01:15:42] Good for him. Well, he stood his ground, David, and that’s I think to your point here. They are trying to intimidate these young kids and I mean, we call them kids, but you know, these are 17, 18, 19, 20-year-olds, and they’re putting their lives on the line for the country. But they’re kids, and it’s easy to intimidate them, and that’s what’s happening here. David, I’ve got to run. Appreciate the call and God bless you and thank you for bringing us up to speed on your son. And please thank him for his service to our great nation. [01:16:11][29.5]
