In the latest episode of “Freedom’s Disciple,” Jonathon Dunne explores the line between self-defense and assault, discusses a horrible hit piece on Jared Kushner, and shares a miracle story you need to hear.
The line between self-defense and assault
Temperatures are rising in America and emotions are starting to boil over. Over the last few weeks, we have seen a lot of attacks within society. If you continue on this path, additional violence is going to take place. If it does, y'all need to have an honest conversation about the principles of self-defense and where that right stops.
Two questions need to be asked:
If someone attacks you, do you have a right to defend yourself and your property? I believe the answer is YES.
The second question is: if I attack you, do you now have open season to do anything you want to me in the name of defense? For example, if you knock me to the ground, do you have a right to kick me in the head or the right to get on top of me and start driving your elbow into the top of my skull clearing trying to cause serious injury? I believe there is a line and I would like to share a personal story with you. Last year I gave sixteen speeches in ten different states and there was only one speech where I was worried about my safety. That was at Duke University, a mere two weeks after they vandalized and removed the statue of Robert E. Lee. Tune in as I explain the prep I made in case a dangerous situation arose.
Jared Kushner attacked
The mainstream media love attacking people for no reason. Last week, the New York Times wrote a horrible op-ed on Jarred Kushner and the amount of taxes he does not pay. It was the typical hit piece about how he is the son-in-law of the Devil (i.e. Donald Trump,) how he is super rich, and how he pays too little income tax. This article by itself is nothing unusual, but Americans on all sides need to ask themselves a few questions. If this President or future ones asked you to serve, would you do it? Would you be willing to have your reputation destroyed? Would you be willing to put your family through the media circus? Washington D.C. has issues and it will need people of honor and integrity to save the country - but with the path you are on, people are going to start saying thanks, but no thanks. That makes America weaker and affects all Americans.
Every single human born has the ability to change the world and make someone's life better. It can be something simple like talking to someone and offering them encouraging words or it can be so much bigger. I want to share the story of Dr. Mohammod Christi. He is a doctor who works in under-developed countries where one of the biggest killers of babies is pneumonia. In fact, pneumonia kills more babies than HIV/Aids, malaria, and measles combined. When a child gets pneumonia, they need access to a ventilator which costs over $15,000. That's a lot of money for one machine anywhere, but especially in underdeveloped countries. One night when he was on duty, he lost three children and vowed to make a difference. He researched and found a cheap solution that involves a shampoo bottle and some water. Tune in for the rest of this amazing miracle story.
