Ravi Zacharias

Ravi Zacharias Part 1 of 2 1. Accused of sexual assault AFTER he dies    Was he a "Satanic Sacrifice"? Which is really a murder to serve wants of the organized crime! Mocking his ability to stand up to people by damaging his spine through microwaves, possibly a computer chip? Yet he said he had back surgery & had two titanium rods surgically implanted. READ MY NOTES HERE. Pardon the occasional foul words but I'm fed up with liars, frauds!     In March 2020, Zacharias was diagnosed with a malignant and rare cancer in his spine, and on 19 May 2020, he died at his home in Atlanta at the age of 74. 2. This minister, McDowell says nothing about not having a desire to assault women. He only mentions "My wife would kill me" - something like that, and the church he works for "they really check you out" - rather than "the church knows where I am, what I'm doing, all the time so I am blessed no one can accuse me of such thing." WTF! https://youtu.be/hb9XDnPMGtM 3. ANOTHER RED FLAG! Her name is not provided Who pays her to write books? Oprah paid a woman who claimed herself to be an investigator, too - to write about the Texas mother, obviously a victim of spousal abuse, to write a book to promote "post partum syndrome" which was not at all what was going on! And the psychotropic drugs put her over the edge! She did not know what she was doing! That book was titled "Are You There Alone" and I gave it a bad review even though my neighbor wrote it. Most likely Oprah told her to go somewhere else. She moved out. She was the one who told me about her book! Her research was not structured, not even valid! She was proselytizing Post Partum! https://youtu.be/2d8DPvHwwy8 4. Another post-death of Ravi Zacharias who was probably medically-murdered! https://youtu.be/oCka2ANeWAU 5. So this guy says he was a faithful follower of Ravi Zacharias, then says Here are all the reasons he is evil - going back on the history he followed. WTF- I find him not reliable in the sense there is a disconnect with why the hell he followed him then. https://youtu.be/GZDITwhAOns 6. Daughter Naomi Zacharias 13min video. Starts emphasizing longstanding, unresolved abuse with no facts, no references. Works in father's recent death and says she died with him. Overall weirdness. I couldn't find any info/admittance her father was or was NOT abusing power, abusing women. https://youtu.be/G7iG2kE7YBg 7. Another One Bites The Dust #BennyHinn #ToddWhite Corruption in Christianity https://youtu.be/FNa-6Xl2XoI 8. Unbelievable? Channel 8min video Yes, Ravi Zacharias was living a double life! https://youtu.be/IuhOTmNfkQI 9. No mention of disgust that Ravi Zacharias never apologized. Obviously trying to save his fake religious empire. "We're all hypocrites", He says. I say, Speak for yourself, you hypocrite! https://youtu.be/E1_SSwH5RRQ 10. First 14min he criticized Ravi Zacharias over semantics.  Did they go in for the kill AFTER? Why didn't sex assault victims speak out sooner? FBI could have sent a spy in to pose as one of alleged victims, to nail him. Is the structure of Christianity even sound? Or is it swim at your own risk? https://youtu.be/X_m4-qdVNTQ 11. It perplexes me that she expects anyone to believe what she's saying just because she squeezes some tears out. Where are the court documents? Why isn't she showing any proof? Why didn't she countersue? WTF!  https://youtu.be/Xyl6jzg5ldc 12. Once again, all talk, no proof of even communications emailed! https://youtu.be/vFN-natx_Ic 13. This was a whole lot of nothing too! https://youtu.be/iHywySwjhSs 14. Attorney Dumbass Another imbecel! If he had serious allegations, the moron should have had a tape recorder hidden! 50 minutes was a long enough time! His BS about Ravi not having much time to spend then says this - more BS! They could care less whether he was guilty of anything or not. It may be he even taped it and had nothing on him so he decided to lie! https://youtu.be/8l5OGDW45zU 15. This Australian minister quotes Jeremiah 17-8 as if it is proof - the book claims man is the most evil creature on earth and he takes it out of context, from thousands of years ago. It is actually an opportunity to deceive people! That was Hitler's tactic: say a lie enough times, it becomes truth! https://youtu.be/5Pzko7Ly6OY 16. Is Joel Olsteen a fake, though? Most definitely! I have no trust in him. I've watched him enough times to decide for myself. https://youtu.be/vTvpAawbP28 17. Ravi Zacharias has 8 min conversation with Ben Shapiro. Supposedly the LAST time he was heard from yet he sounds perfectly fine, healthy....So maybe they killed him or faked his death if he was really guilty OR he was told inside info that a campaign of lies was plotted against him and he needed to fake his death for his own safety.  https://youtu.be/ukSfuDK3aUU 18. Another SPINELESS SHILL who doesn't give a flying-F about validating anything. He's whoring lies like National Inquirer  did to Michael Jackson and others. The pattern is obvious! I've yet to see any validation! #FollowTheMoney https://youtu.be/vZPYBIKdbhw 19. Ravi Zacharias speaks at Times Square Church, NYC shortly before his reported death. Hopefully his death was faked, based on discovery of a dark operation against him, to exploit and destroy who he is, what he represents! This is a very interesting sermon he gives and he shows no character of being a sex predator! The real sex predators are creating this campaign! And most of them conspired to mass murder on #Sep11! https://youtu.be/C7z-nk6WXC8 20. 5min video made a week ago about Ravi Zacharias. Emphasis on theological view, no mention of Ravi being a sex predator - or anything negative about his character. 21.  RZIM Investigation/Report. Bear in mind, this was all generated AFTER he was reported dead! https://youtu.be/EhINNGvhlCI PART 2 Ravi Zacharias, Part 2 Part 1 is on my other phone. I'm so freaking angry about this BS! Was Ravi murdered? He sounded perfectly fine when talking to Ben Shapiro, yet was dead a short time later! WTF I never even heard of him until this BS surfaced. Welcome to the world of NATIONAL INQUIRER! Memorial Service in GA Around August-September 2020 5+ hrs https://youtu.be/713Z85dQlQs My comments, notes CONCLUSION: Do you know how much that Ravi Zacharias is being brought up? I never heard of him. I thought he was the one who made Ravi Olee....kidding! Why is it they wait till he dies to discredit him? I think I answered my own question. I've been watching video after video and there's no proof! Claims he sexually assaulted over 200 women...And why is RZIM, his organization, allowing this BS? Women squeezing tears in videos like the Gov of Michigan when she told people she was raped as part of her campaign strategy - WITH NO PROOF! Why are people buying into it? The more I watch, the more it's obvious. This is a campaign of lies. Obama and other Presidents have organized several campaigns of lies (JFK, MLK murders; cover-ups on real reasons for wars, etc) including claims that the MONARCHY had hunting excursions, where they put children in the woods and hunt after them. I never believed the DEPRAVITY and even found a story about where and when that was done - I think from The History Guy, in the Dark Ages. Alot of this is about timing - nobody "reported" anything till he was reported dead, and nobody, NOT ONCE, said he showed violent tendencies, threatened with violence - and THAT is what usually keeps sex assault victims silent. "THIS IS A WITCH HUNT" - fabricating falsehoods when he's not here to defend himself - most likely to further break down and devalue Christianity, to fabricate a New World Order. Indeed there is a New World Order being devised from this fake Pandemic (which is not even a noun, it's an adjective! See my blogpost on the fake Coronavirus. One of my recent ones so you just need to scroll a bit. Decide for yourself.) 1. I hope Prince William's mental health program concentrates on functionality; for drugs/Pharmakea is rooted in Deception. STAY AWAY FROM TOXIC PEOPLE. It's easier said than done, when those toxic people manipulate those around you with lies oftentimes. That is abuse of freedom. Dr. Sam Vaknin goes to great detail on the tactics of extreme narcissism, behavior. 2. Was Ravi murdered? He certainly didn't sound sick just before he died. See # 17, a conversation he had with Ben Shapiro, who is a talkshow host and attorney. 3. Why do they wait till he dies? 4. Is this to take down Mike Pence pusuing his run for President? Mike Pence should be President now, legally! Trump was already impeached! And is this Ravi Zacharias story used as another distraction, like Trump did with the fake Russian Collusion which he also used as excuse to fire Mike Flynn, NSA, AFTER HE PRODUCED SOUND EVIDENCE to put several high-profile paedophiles away? Isn't it obvious that Trump didn't want plea bargains so they could get off and Trump would be arrested? Is this campaign of lies funded by Donald Trump, et al? 5 Mike Winger seems like a dingbat https://youtu.be/PcWeZS3cnNo My comments I am neither liking or disliking - but WTF, you WAIT til he dies to discredit him? Have you done anything legally? Probably not and this is like listening to the NATIONAL INQUIRER. My question is, WHO KILLED RAVI ZACHARIAS? The woman on this video, LoriAnn Thompson, sounds and appears to be acting! You're discussing to claim she was a victim. You should be addressing this as a CONCERN, moron! 6. @PMOIndia @HassanRouhani @ElizabethUKRPG I've listened to video after video and can only conclude so far the #RaviZacharias was SABATOGED by money vultures who wait until his reported death to do anything about suspicious activity! #HoldLiarsAccountable! #NoProof just #HotAir 7. #RaviZacharias You have no proof! This is a social media campaign for the #SatanicUnderground YOU are an #EnemyWithin in a #PayToPlay scheme to distract from REAL crimes like #Seo11 when Americans mass murdered Americans; and COVID-19 reflects 19 yrs after #Sep11 @AE911Truth 8. @kevinmnye1 Recycling #FashionedIdeology only makes those who participate as nothing more than worthless addicts for attention! This viral narcissim only has one motive: The End JUSTIFIES The Means - you ppl are EVIL! #NoProof about #RaviZacharias as a sex predator! @MikePence 9. @emilybelz @MikePence #MikePence @AE911Truth - Say a lie enough times, it becomes Truth - you people care nothing about real Truth! #StupidAsAWeapon There is no proof against #RaviZacharias and you create this campaign of lies AFTER he's reported dead! @HassanRouhani @PMOIndia 10. @E_Cready Explain why The Graham Assoc. Sent mailings that had "The ashes were beautiful" when Trump burned thousands of alive ppl to ashes at #ParadiseCA Trump's uncle made laser weapons for CIA, et al as his career! 11. Notes on RZIM Investigation Report, #21 with TIM HERD. 50 min John McArthur labeled Ravi as sexually deviant. Ravi's ministry gives final report. "We are saddened.. how could Ravi do this and have a deviant lifestyle? THE ALLEGATIONS ARE THE WORST YOU COULD HAVE AGAINST ANYBODY...two lives/one life he lived and one life he had BEHIND THE SCENES" These are his actual words, people! He's not making any freaking sense! He's a gold-digger capitalizing on lies! He claims Ravi "if he was a Christian, he was the most miserable person on the planet" There is no logic in what Herd is saying! These FRAUDS need to be taken down, and this is a perfect example of YouTube supporting frauds! Open Letter Of International Board Of Directors of RZIM Herd chuckles and says nobody knows who the members of the board is THINK ABOUT THAT! He doesn't give a crap about finding out and only says "it's interesting" There's no authenticity in the alleged report! 3min 44sec Yet it says they are asserting "The Full Truth" Nobody should consider this a valid video and Herd is being a FRAUD! It may be a group tied to the dirty sociopathic Technocrats are taking over to help create Bill Gates' et Al, vision of a New World Order - and they will HERD us as much as they can! To make us sheeple, not thinking for ourselves! His real name probably isn't even Herd! Ref to "Miller & Martin's" independent report. FYI, Nobody died at Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting! The school was closed, could not be used for school! Yet the kids were transported there that day only and were told it was a drill! The FBI special Agent In Charge William Aldenburg, reported that! David Wheeler, one of the fake parents, IMPERSONATED Agent William Aldenburg and the FBI refused to arrest him! That's federal offense! Really Graceful channel on YouTube emphasized Mitt Romney used to impersonate police officers, including pulling people over on the highway! So who are Miller and Martin? https://www.millermartin.com/legal-practice-areas/Litigation/white-collar-corporate-investigation/ You can't read their information unless you agree to allow them to spy on your device! DON'T ALLOW! They are located in Charlotte, NC That surely jumps out at me because a scientist from North Carolina went to Wuhan with the bioweapon which Bill Gates funded him, et al to make (The Spanish Flu was also created in North Carolina and blamed on Spain! See the Modus Operandi, which also reflects a Satanic Ritual?)

Obviously, intelligence in China intercepted! The Chinese scientist most likely was the Whistleblower and he was placed in protective custody. Bill Gates had to change the name because people were being tested as positive for the common Flu! So his people changed it to Coronavirus, figuring all the fum-duck people wouldn't realize that's the medical term for flu and is even on the back of cold medicine bottles! The Technocrats are extreme narcissists, delusional in part because they use psychotic drugs. So do many CIA operatives and agents! Just watch a video by Talbott, who wrote the Devil's Chessboard book AS REVERSE PSYCHOLOGY. Talbott is a CIA operative, obviously! Search my blog for blogpost transcript of 3hr interview with Cody (or Robert) Snogres. Search PubliusRoots Cody Snogres Hopefully that will work Cody was his nickname but known as that in CIA circles. He was an operative, explosive expert. They tried to get him to bomb the OK City Murrow Building. He refused to bomb on US soil. He was realizing just how criminal CIA was. Because he refused, they beat him up to kill him, make him die a slow death, which is common by the mafia. He was in ICU a long time but lived to tell his story, even though they also bombed his house and I think his car. They began backing off as they were busy planning the mass murder of September 11!

There is no validation by cyber security specialists, No listing of EVIDENCE, No verification of backgrounds of testimonies. No listing of depositions. "We Believe" is stated several times which breaks down credibility! Testimonies are below-standard! So many loopholes! They claim they can't even figure out what Ravi's phone or phones were consecutively from 2004 - 2020! No investigation on finances, expenses! Most likely the phones they report are FAKE, FRAUDULENT! No mention of board members' names, another "minor detail" left out! Who the hell is MULLER Investigations? They can't even spell their own damn name? Their "Open Letter" shows no transparency! They don't even list their names, let alone sign the damn letter! It should be described as Open-ended letter! https://www.rzim.org/read/rzim-updates/board-statement This is all bullshit and angers me so because they waste time and money! All of these frauds should be held accountable, including seizing assets! They are money-grubbing liars! And most likely murdered RAVI ZACHARIAS, if he himself was not in on this scheme!

Our next Where Are They Now feature focuses on former Appalachian State quarterback, Chris Swecker. The former quarterback finished his collegiate career with Mountaineers in 1978 before attending Wake Forest University School of Law. Following his graduation from law school, Swecker joined the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) where he rose to the Assistant Director of the Criminal Investigative Division. Chris Swecker Appalachian State Football (1974-1978)-B.A. Political Science Wake Forest University School of Law (1978-1981) Current Profession: Attorney/Consultant, Financial Crimes Strategies and Control at Chris Swecker Enterprises How did you end up at Appalachian State? It is an interesting story on how I ended up at Appalachian State. The principal of my high school played football for Jim Brakefield at Wofford when he was the head coach there and he was a very strong proponent of both Jim Brakefield and the Appalachian State football program. When the Appalachian State Mountaineer recruiter came to Virginia Beach, Va. to my high school looking for some recruits, he began the process of feeding students from Virginia Beach and Tidewater area to App State. So I was one of those students he mentored into going to Appalachian State. Talk about your time at Appalachian State. You said you were from Virginia Beach, what was the transition like from Virginia Beach to Boone? That was interesting. A beach kid going to college in the mountains. It was an interesting transition for someone who had lived around beaches all my life. It took about a month and a half for me to really adjust to the mountain setting. One of the reasons anyone goes to Appalachian State is because of the beautiful mountains and it's a good school. I remember waking up one more and walking to two-a-day football practice about midway through those two-a-days. You were sore you could barely get out of bed and at 7:30 in the morning you're walking towards the field house and there's this big beautiful mountain in the back drop. I just remember thinking, 'yeah I'm in the right place.' What's your fondest memory from your time at Appalachian State? There are quite a few interesting memories. Some of the great memories are all the football players skiing in the off-season. You had these big football players skiing down the mountains in blue jeans. We weren't exactly the model ski patrol types, but there were a lot of good memories. The memory that I remember the most is filling up that stadium in the fall and looking to the right and left and seeing these people that you've lived with for four years and you know that you can count on. Even to this day we are still really good friends. That camaraderie of playing a college sport in that setting on Saturday afternoon when you've been working hard and now you're playing East Carolina or South Carolina and some of the schools that we played and you just thought, 'I'm really lucky to be able to do this.' What was your favorite game at home that you played? My favorite game was the first game that I started against Western Carolina. I was scared to death and I just remember the first series when I got popped really hard. Once you're on the field and things are moving and you're in the heat of battle, all your nerves start to go away. I still have a rib that sticks out from that day. That was a big rivalry between Appalachian State and Western Carolina and it still is. I may have played the very first year they had the mountain jug. And I remember thinking, 'this is not the game you want to walk into as a rookie starter and mess up.' Do you still go back to football games? And is the atmosphere still the same for you? I do. What's interesting about people from my generation is just how much has changed over the years. There is now this double deck stadium, it looks and has the feel of big time. When I was playing football at Appalachian it was single deck on both sides. It feels like a big time college program now. While you were a student-athlete at Appalachian State, did you have dreams of going to law school? Or how did that whole idea come about? I wanted to go to law school from the time I graduated from high school. I was involved in a prolonged court case, it was a criminal case. I was a victim, I got assaulted and this guy got four years in prison so I got familiar with the whole court process and I became fascinated by the court room. So I had set my sights on going to law school after I finished at Appalachian. That was in question after my first quarter (we were in quarters then), I sat down with my advisor, who was my coach's wife and she looked at my grades and said, 'what do you want to do?' and I told her I wanted to go to law school. And she told me that maybe I should set my sights a little lower. That really got me going so I pulled 4.0's for four semesters, I really got after it after that. Rightfully so she sounded the alarm and said if you're wanting to go to law school you're going to have to toe the mark in the classroom as much as you do on the football field. What was it like being a student-athlete in undergrad and making the jump to law school? As a college athlete, in a way you're really working your way through school because of the time commitment because of the practices, you even had classroom sessions. And quarterbacks even had an extra hour and a half a day of class for football so you really had to understand time management and what we call multi-tasking. So I really think the athletic experience and the rigor you had to adhere to in the classroom served well when I got to law school because it wasn't really a huge transition in how to manage my time because I already knew how to do that. I knew when I had to study and I also knew you had to have some down time as well. Most of the law students that I observed were studying 24/7. It was a situation where they sometimes couldn't step back and look at the broader picture and see what we were all striving for, which is well-rounded, balanced attorneys. I felt like the football experience prepared me well to be more balanced in my approach in law school. How did the transition from law school at Wake Forest University to being an FBI agent come about? I took a job as a district attorney to be consistent with my goal of being in the court room. As luck would have it when I was a third year law student, a former pro basketball player was an FBI agent and was the recruiter in law school and he really got me fired up about the FBI so I went ahead and put an application in. I thought if everyone in the FBI is six-foot-nine former athletes, it's probably the organization for me. So as a backup I went ahead and applied which was during the Reagan years and they froze hiring for almost a year. So the counsel I was given by the recruiter was to take a job and when the time comes you'll have to make the decision on whether or not you go into the FBI, but it took about a year and a half to finally get to that point. At that time, I decided that if I didn't take the opportunity I would regret it forever. So I told my then-finance that I would do it for two years and then go back to practicing law. Well it took 25 years to get it out of my system, but it was a very good match for me. That sounds like an awesome career and I'm sure you have tons of stories. Any job you're going to work for 35-40 years, you have to have some passion about what you're doing and you have to look forward to getting up and going to work in the morning. That's exactly what I found with that career. It had its frustrations like any job does, but you had that overall sense of mission and being able to have that feeling that you were saving the world one day at a time, and just having that sacred mission every day. And you get to do things that most people will only read about. During your 25 years with the FBI what is one thing that sticks out to you the most? There were a lot of interesting things. One vivid memory I have is riding in a boat down the Miami River about 3 a.m. in the morning with a boat load of FBI agents and we were working a drug smuggling operation. We were going to put a GPS tracking device in a boat that was going to pick up a pretty large load of cocaine. The moon is full we are armed to the teeth and we have this other group of technical agents with us. I remember looking over to this other guy and saying, 'I can't believe we get paid to do this.' It was event after event like that. I remember when I was in Iraq, I just remember thinking this is the most fascinating place to be at this time, and it was 2003. The UN had been bombed and it was chaos over there but it was just a fascinating place to be at the time. The military was always so happy to see us wherever we showed up. September 11, 2001 was a day our country will never forget. Could you talk a little bit about where you were on that morning? Another one of those strange twists of fate. I was in Washington about to meet with the FBI Director, who had become the new director before 9/11 and I had been elected by the agents in charge to represent them in briefing the director in briefing him about various issues across the FBI. I and a couple agents in charge were about to step into a meeting with the new director, so we were in the command post waiting when the first plane hit the tower. So here we are in     Gee, something cut off What I copied when pasting right at this point...isn't that a coincidence...oh, li'l ol' Sep11!      The following is NOT what I copied, I copied the rest about SEPTEMBER 11!

Following his graduation from law school, Swecker joined the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) where he rose to the Assistant Director of the Criminal Investigative Division.

It is an interesting story on how I ended up at Appalachian State. The principal of my high school played football for Jim Brakefield at Wofford when he was the head coach there and he was a very strong proponent of both Jim Brakefield and the Appalachian State football program. When the Appalachian State Mountaineer recruiter came to Virginia Beach, Va. to my high school looking for some recruits, he began the process of feeding students from Virginia Beach and Tidewater area to App State. So I was one of those students he mentored into going to Appalachian State. Talk about your time at Appalachian State. You said you were from Virginia Beach, what was the transition like from Virginia Beach to Boone? That was interesting. A beach kid going to college in the mountains. It was an interesting transition for someone who had lived around beaches all my life. It took about a month and a half for me to really adjust to the mountain setting. One of the reasons anyone goes to Appalachian State is because of the beautiful mountains and it's a good school. I remember waking up one more and walking to two-a-day football practice about midway through those two-a-days. You were sore you could barely get out of bed and at 7:30 in the morning you're walking towards the field house and there's this big beautiful mountain in the back drop. I just remember thinking, 'yeah I'm in the right place.' What's your fondest memory from your time at Appalachian State? There are quite a few interesting memories. Some of the great memories are all the football players skiing in the off-season. You had these big football players skiing down the mountains in blue jeans. We weren't exactly the model ski patrol types, but there were a lot of good memories. The memory that I remember the most is filling up that stadium in the fall and looking to the right and left and seeing these people that you've lived with for four years and you know that you can count on. Even to this day we are still really good friends. That camaraderie of playing a college sport in that setting on Saturday afternoon when you've been working hard and now you're playing East Carolina or South Carolina and some of the schools that we played and you just thought, 'I'm really lucky to be able to do this.' What was your favorite game at home that you played? My favorite game was the first game that I started against Western Carolina. I was scared to death and I just remember the first series when I got popped really hard. Once you're on the field and things are moving and you're in the heat of battle, all your nerves start to go away. I still have a rib that sticks out from that day. That was a big rivalry between Appalachian State and Western Carolina and it still is. I may have played the very first year they had the mountain jug. And I remember thinking, 'this is not the game you want to walk into as a rookie starter and mess up.' Do you still go back to football games? And is the atmosphere still the same for you? I do. What's interesting about people from my generation is just how much has changed over the years. There is now this double deck stadium, it looks and has the feel of big time. When I was playing football at Appalachian it was single deck on both sides. It feels like a big time college program now. While you were a student-athlete at Appalachian State, did you have dreams of going to law school? Or how did that whole idea come about? I wanted to go to law school from the time I graduated from high school. I was involved in a prolonged court case, it was a criminal case. I was a victim, I got assaulted and this guy got four years in prison so I got familiar with the whole court process and I became fascinated by the court room. So I had set my sights on going to law school after I finished at Appalachian. That was in question after my first quarter (we were in quarters then), I sat down with my advisor, who was my coach's wife and she looked at my grades and said, 'what do you want to do?' and I told her I wanted to go to law school. And she told me that maybe I should set my sights a little lower. That really got me going so I pulled 4.0's for four semesters, I really got after it after that. Rightfully so she sounded the alarm and said if you're wanting to go to law school you're going to have to toe the mark in the classroom as much as you do on the football field. What was it like being a student-athlete in undergrad and making the jump to law school? As a college athlete, in a way you're really working your way through school because of the time commitment because of the practices, you even had classroom sessions. And quarterbacks even had an extra hour and a half a day of class for football so you really had to understand time management and what we call multi-tasking. So I really think the athletic experience and the rigor you had to adhere to in the classroom served well when I got to law school because it wasn't really a huge transition in how to manage my time because I already knew how to do that. I knew when I had to study and I also knew you had to have some down time as well. Most of the law students that I observed were studying 24/7. It was a situation where they sometimes couldn't step back and look at the broader picture and see what we were all striving for, which is well-rounded, balanced attorneys. I felt like the football experience prepared me well to be more balanced in my approach in law school. How did the transition from law school at Wake Forest University to being an FBI agent come about? I took a job as a district attorney to be consistent with my goal of being in the court room. As luck would have it when I was a third year law student, a former pro basketball player was an FBI agent and was the recruiter in law school and he really got me fired up about the FBI so I went ahead and put an application in. I thought if everyone in the FBI is six-foot-nine former athletes, it's probably the organization for me. So as a backup I went ahead and applied which was during the Reagan years and they froze hiring for almost a year. So the counsel I was given by the recruiter was to take a job and when the time comes you'll have to make the decision on whether or not you go into the FBI, but it took about a year and a half to finally get to that point. At that time, I decided that if I didn't take the opportunity I would regret it forever. So I told my then-finance that I would do it for two years and then go back to practicing law. Well it took 25 years to get it out of my system, but it was a very good match for me. That sounds like an awesome career and I'm sure you have tons of stories. Any job you're going to work for 35-40 years, you have to have some passion about what you're doing and you have to look forward to getting up and going to work in the morning. That's exactly what I found with that career. It had its frustrations like any job does, but you had that overall sense of mission and being able to have that feeling that you were saving the world one day at a time, and just having that sacred mission every day. And you get to do things that most people will only read about. During your 25 years with the FBI what is one thing that sticks out to you the most? There were a lot of interesting things. One vivid memory I have is riding in a boat down the Miami River about 3 a.m. in the morning with a boat load of FBI agents and we were working a drug smuggling operation. We were going to put a GPS tracking device in a boat that was going to pick up a pretty large load of cocaine. The moon is full we are armed to the teeth and we have this other group of technical agents with us. I remember looking over to this other guy and saying, 'I can't believe we get paid to do this.' It was event after event like that. I remember when I was in Iraq, I just remember thinking this is the most fascinating place to be at this time, and it was 2003. The UN had been bombed and it was chaos over there but it was just a fascinating place to be at the time. The military was always so happy to see us wherever we showed up. September 11, 2001 was a day our country will never forget. Could you talk a little bit about where you were on that morning? Another one of those strange twists of fate. I was in Washington about to meet with the FBI Director, who had become the new director before 9/11 and I had been elected by the agents in charge to represent them in briefing the director in briefing him about various issues across the FBI. I and a couple agents in charge were about to step into a meeting with the new director, so we were in the command post waiting when the first plane hit the tower. So here we are in It stopped - the subapp...
