"In most doors. Quarterback Jim Bohannon. Show 186650 Jimbo 18665546 to 6. Guest. Peter would is the author of 16 20. It is from in counter books and subtitled a critical response to the 16 19 Project. His website in a S done or get refers to the National Association of Scholars. And what exactly is the National Association of Scholars? The Mr Wood? It's an organization of about three tells and 400 individuals, most of them faculty members or retired faculty members. We've been around since the mid 19 eighties, and you could say we're the Voice of conservative, higher education where the sellers who don't go along with political correctness. Well, I hope you will keep me informed of all of your activities. It's the long overdue here is called from Frank and Cumberland, Maryland. Good evening, mister. Will. You just answered my question? But could you expand on your answer? Have you encountered opposition? Do you get the kind of friction with your fellow scholars? That that must be the other state in question of the year, But police, please go ahead, Mr Wood. Have a nice softball question. While we are constantly fighting with Faculty members and administrators and trustees were kind of watchdog organization that takes the light and calling out the follies of higher education. And they keep us busy. So we do a lot of policy work. But we do research reports and we publishing journal and But I spent a fair amount of my time just arguing with administrators who are trying to Ah Put down or cancel faculty members who say things that they don't want to have said So when the faculty member gets his publications. Can't fold. We republished them when they call people out. We try to give them a platform. So we're doing a lot of that stuff. All right. Very good. 186650, Jimbo, when 86650546 to 6 Now I know that in the book 16 20 you write of The New York Times 16 Page newspaper supplement. On rather critically, I might add. Tell us about that as a part of their 16 19 project. Well, the time spared no expense on this. So the same day they put out that 100 Page magazine. They also put it in a special newspaper supplement, which was Mostly pictures, although there was some text to it as well. But the idea is to just rob Americans face and how horrible slavery was. Well, you know, I don't know anybody who doesn't think slavery was horrible. The idea is that there's a lot more to America, then just slavery. In fact, slavery was almost universal in centuries past with America was distinct for was the creation of an abolitionist movement that ended slavery. So instead of telling that story, they picture man Nichols and, uh, torture, implements and rips and that sort of thing and basically say this is what America is all about. Oh, yeah, I'll just quote from from from what you wrote here in the preliminaries of the book. The material. This material all fits thematically with the 16 19 project, though, how exactly it is intended to advance. The cause is unclear. Reading the supplement is like walking through a not so well organized museum exhibit. It follows rough chronology and present some striking images but is overpowered by one screaming headline after another. I dare say that if you were grating this so you would not be handing out today. There. No, I I would definitely wouldn't. All right in terms, of course, are two ways to look at the 16 19 project, and certainly Peter would in his book 16. 20 does just that one. Would be in terms of interpretation. The other would be in terms of outright factual errors. I would suspect that the majority of the 16 19 project Falls under the interpretation problem, but were there outright factual errors as well? Oh, there's plenty of both interpretive problems and factual errors. I would say A few factual errors are so terrible that they They jumped out immediately. One was the idea that the American Revolution was fought in order to preserve the institution of slavery that is forget about all men are created equal and the pursuit of Freedom that came with the declaration of Independence instead, supposedly George Washington and others were busy with the idea of You hear that The British crown was going to abolish slavery in the United States and that we had to break with British rule in order to keep slavery going. No, a zit happened. There's not a scintilla of evidence that any American in the American Revolution thought such a thing. Or is there any evidence that the British ever thought of abolishing slavery they were the world's principal slave trader at that time? They were busy promoting slavery in the non North American colonies, principally in the Caribbean. The British slave trade was one of their most profitable enterprises. They weren't about to call it into it. So, but just a factual errors and the steak of astonishing proportions and no one who has ever ever written American history could just prostitution And of course, then we we we take a look at the hotbed of the Revolution, which was New England. Where, Of course, the slave economy to the extent that it existed at all was minuscule. Right? Um, many of the colonies in the north had already moved towards abolishing slavery, or we're about to it was a minimal presence and rapidly disappearing. The abolitionist movement was already underway by the time the American Revolution was fought. So even in the south, however, where slavery was an institution It wasn't crossing anybody's mind that we needed the break with England to get rid to preserve it. So this thing is a falsehood. That is so large that just jaw dropping that will think the only Please, please, Please continue with mark with more of those Well, there's a count of Abraham Lincoln as a racist who won America into the civil war because he was so eager to get black Americans exiled to Across the ocean, So we were going to fight the civil war just because Lincoln, the racist, was eager to further the racist designs of demeaning African Americans. Again. This is preposterous that this is not. What Lincoln was about on this account is makes the sensible but there's another really big Thing that again just astonishes me that anybody would write this. The idea was that all American prosperity every every bit of our economic might over the Centuries is the result of slavery that slavery is what made America rich in the first place. And it was where we invented our system of capitalism. They call low road capitalism based on exploitation of people, according to The New York Times. A double entry bookkeeping started on plantations in the south in order to extract the maximum possible profit out of slavery. On these air things, which other historians over the years ridiculed the idea that the cotton plantation King cotton, as it used to be called, was the source of American prosperity. Is just plain falls. Cotton was very, uh, profit making to the handful of people who ran the plantations. But it was not the source of American prosperity. Northern industry awas. Yeah, we must pause briefly on that note. I'll continue with more with Peter would again.

"Week the nine millimeter long ago Is it a nine millimeter round? Or is it a villain from James Bond is what it sounds like news radio 1000. Katie. Okay, Bob, Ill Temper was is with us from New York and our parent company, I Heart radio and the I Heart radio news Division, which is 24 7 News Bill. I understand that he's making his list and checking it twice. But it's not Santa Claus. It's Joe Biden. That's right. And some people want some names added to the list here or subtracted from the list because he's got a couple of critical Cabinet positions still open here that he hasn't suggested any nominees for including the Defense secretary, Health and Human Services and Justice Department for attorney general. And Joe Biden is finding now leave that there is some pressure being applied by groups, ethnic groups and caucuses, in fact, that there was a virtual meeting between the transition team and they need the Congressional Hispanic Caucus yesterday. Well, that was described as diplomatic but tense. Also the shape is weighing in and what these groups are asking is that Joe Biden diversify his Cabinet even more. The group that he's already announced seems to be a pretty diverse group. But they say there needs to be more Hispanic and more African American influence in this cabinet, and they're suggesting People for these vacancies like they say for attorney general. What about California Attorney General Xavier? But Sarah, who's who has a lengthy record? What about form outgoing DNC Chairman Tom Perez for Defense secretary. They say What about J. Johnson? Who is a former Homeland Security secretary s o they applying some pressure here on Joe Biden? And we'll have to see exactly what decisions are made. But he's feeling some heat, I think was Abraham Lincoln, who he hated that the most of his job was coming up with the Cabinet because, of course, everybody is calling in favors, and everybody's telling you what they want. And I think he said something to the If I'm gonna, I'm gonna homogenize this because he was a little more brutal about it. But I think like Lincoln said something to the effect of there's too many piglets. To nurse. He said it more colorfully than that. But I'm not going to say what he said. Yeah, right on theirs. They're pulling in different directions here. Not on Lee. Are you getting these? Uh, these ethnic groups, the Hispanic Caucus and the end of the deep, uh, saying that there should be more representation in the cabinet. But then you're getting the progressives and moderates also trying to apply pressure the other way, too. That they should have more influence in the administration. So they're tough decisions that the president in the transition team have to make builds them first with us Meanwhile, I know Georgia is not going anywhere as far as grabbing the headlines and those two senators running probably have a very busy weekend on tap. And they're going to get a lot of help this weekend. This is going to be very, very interesting Weekend In George, It's been an interesting week. As a matter of fact, there, been there been rallies going on. We know that their hearing's going on into the election in Georgia on then today we have Mike Pence in Savannah. He'll be campaigning on behalf of the Republican candidates for the Senate runoff. Skelly Leffler and David Perdue. And Barack Obama will be conducting a virtual rally for the Democratic candidates. Jonah Soften Raphael Warnock, and then the big guy goes in tomorrow, President Trump will go down to Val d'Aosta. His first trip since the election. And here's the issue, though, Lee that nobody is quite sure what attacked the president is going to take here, and we know that he likes to free wheel it at these events. He feeds off the crowd. Uh, So will he be there to pump up the candidates? Or will he be there to once again? Bash the election system in Georgia, Bash the Republican governor and Republican secretary of State and claim that the election was rigged and stolen from him. The fear being that if he does that Some Republican voters in Georgia who are trump supporters might just say I'm not gonna vote in the special election because it's rigged anyway. Yes, yes, that That's what I would anticipate. Now It's the left. We're gonna be with him down in Valdosta. You know, I'm not sure who is going to be in attendance at this rally. I'm not Hey, wouldn't it's gonna just gonna be interesting to see the governor? Maybe is there since they have been at odds, those, too, but I'm not sure who's gonna be at this rally with the president. But again, it's just going to be interesting to see what kind of attack he takes as he approaches this, because this will really be his first big public appearance. Uh, since the election, and if he wants to get this message out about the election being stolen from him, the like he did on social media the other day, This would be a place to do it. But for that reason, Republican officials in Georgia are a little bit anxious about this Valdosta as it's not just a gust of that. There's a home of a great golf course. But Valdosta is a home for great golf courses, and the president should feel right at home. Maybe you'll squeeze around there. I mean, they have enough room for the clubs on Air Force One after all, right, Newsradio 1000, Katie. Okay..

Will giving Happy the elephant human rights actually make her happy?

"Elephant at the Bronx Zoo named Happy the elephant, All right, who was in court last week? Well, actually not in court because they didn't bring happy into the courtroom, But there was a group called the Nonhuman Rights Project. That brought a lawsuit against the city of New York actually state of New York to have happy declared a person to give happy personhood. 49 year old female Asian elephants been living by herself in conditions that have well they're not wonderful to say the least. And so here, the appeals court determining whether animals or people pita Has been making these claims and filing lawsuits for years. Pita you know that bread that Mideast earner so eat? No, no, the people for the ethical treatment of animals. I always get the two confused and There. It's case after case that's filed last time. I think they did one with a chimpanzee, arguing that the genetics of chimpanzees and humans are so close. They should be. They should be both considered human beings and the court said Now I don't think so. And then there's been some really crazy ones that Richard the durable, for example, was once The plaintiff in a lawsuit to be declared A person and so here, the justices looking at this and they're actually looking. There was an appeals court decision. The loss course low record and kicked it up, and I guess the court wanted to hear it. Because the appeals court could say no S o. The judges were a little skeptical, and one of the joint justices said. Isn't this better suited for the Legislature to act on legislatures can actually deem animals People, uh, pursuant to a legislative act now that if that holds up in court, no one knows, But if anybody's gonna do, it's gonna be the Legislature and then the Justice said, I'm not so sure we're equipped to even handle these kinds of matters. And what the group argued is that happy's living conditions at the Bronx Zoo was effectively solitary confinement and arguing she's been mistreated. Now, think about this for a moment. And there's some practical aspects of this because right now animals you own their property. It's that simple. You buy. You sell animals and your that's it now. What if the animals were people? I mean, think about this legally. This is not one of those. He What if animals were people, Then we start to, you know, flying off on fantasies? No. Legally if animals repeated were people you can't own a dog. You're not allowed to own people. They call it slavery Abraham Lincoln and 14th amendment in all that stuff, Actually 13th amendment and so it has been an ongoing fight. So practically speaking, Of course, there's nowhere to go with that aunt. Legally speaking, there's nowhere to go with that, although do you remember Mitt Romney during the run for the presidency, he said. Corporations are people. And that may have cost him the race. He was nailed for that well, corporations are people for purposes of shielding liability. That's what corporations are about. They are an entity. They're not people. But they have Ah, lot of the same shields. And so they've bean s o the animal rights people of this you using that a lot Hey of corporations to be Dean people than certainly non humans, animals, hamsters, durables so happy the elefant. Can be named people. So anyway, of course, is going to go no place, but it's just kind of fun, man. I love these lawsuits.

Ken Burns on America, selling his first film and more

"With With such such an an acrimonious acrimonious election. election. We We turn turn tonight tonight to to a a man man who who tells tells the the story of America in all her divisions and struggle for unity. Ken Burns. Documentaries range from the Civil War to baseball, Vietnam and last year's country music. Burns calls himself an emotional archaeologist. He excavates lost love letters for gotten photos and overlooked heroes research so deep Viewers can feel like strangers discovering America for the first time. His films asked what it means to be American, so we asked, What does it mean to be Ken Burns? I have had the privilege of spending my entire life making films about the U. S capitol you capital s, but I've also had the privilege of making films about us. The two letter lower case plural pronoun that has a kind of intimacy and warmth to it in the country Music film Merle Haggard says. Country music is about those things we believe in but can't see like dreams and songs and soul is telling us that there is In front of us a kind of rational world in which one in one always equals two, but that the thing that compels us forward as human beings is that we look for one in one Equaling three. We find that in our faith, we find that in our art we find that in our love of each other, and I think one of things I discovered working on country music is that When I understood this dynamic between the US and US lower case upper case that I realized there's only us no them. The choice was easy because Thie American struggle to forge union from diversity has been Ken Burns obsession since he was 11 years old at the end of this lane in Ann Arbor, Michigan. In 1965, his mother was dying of cancer. At the same time, the fight for equality was in critical condition. Before my mom died, I would watch and I would hear from the other room about the dogs and the fire hoses in Selma, and it would make me as upset. As upset in my gut. As the worry about my mom. And it was almost as if I was transposing the cancer that was killing my family and the cancer that was killing my country. And if you look at my films, almost 40 of them, you can count on the fingers of one hand. The number of films that don't end up dealing with race. His early films included the Statue of Liberty and the Congress, but it wasn't until his seventh. That America returned. Ken Burns affection. The Civil War was seen by 39 million viewers, an 11 hour epic that immortalized a love letter and the walls. The Ashokan farewell. The fiddle to the fiddle tune that you could never get out of your head already died out of the home. The lament seemed written as a score. For the letter union soldiers, Sullivan Ballou wrote his wife a week before his staff. I shall always be with you in the brightest day in the darkest night, Always Always On When the soft breeze fans your cheek. It It will will be be my my breath breath or or the the cool cool air air your your throbbing throbbing temple. temple. It It should should be be my my spirit spirit passing passing by. by. I I think think every every man wishes he could say those words to the woman he loves. And every woman wishes that her man could say that that maybe our shot burns films are a letter to the country he loves, but not out of blind devotion. His is Theophile action that endures after confronting America's founding flaw. We hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal, yet he owned more than 200 human beings. And never saw fit to free them. Burns finds Thie American paradox in the wars we fight and the games we play that told people that baseball was the sequel to the Civil War, and I meant it. I meant it, how we play games and the nature of immigration and the exclusion of women and popular culture and advertising and heroes and villains and our imagination and race and race and race. Are who we are, and the first really progress in civil rights after the Civil War takes place when Jack Roosevelt Robinson, the grandson of a slave makes his way to first base at Debits Field on April 15th 1947. Then there's no question that the story of baseball is just going to take off. From the assassination of Abraham Lincoln and the failure of reconstruction and moved to that to that moment. Ken Burns moment came in 1981 with his first subject, the Brooklyn Bridge, which no one thought was a good idea where you had an inanimate object and no one to interview right. Great television. Yes, and I look 12 years old, So I was out trying to raise money. And they say this child is trying to sell me the Brooklyn Bridge. No. PVs bought the Brooklyn Bridge and Burns structured his style. Animating images frozen in time and giving them voice here. I was 32 years old, suddenly in charge of the most stupendous engineering structure of the age. Famous voices volunteer just to be in a Ken Burns film Meryl Streep as Eleanor Roosevelt. Courage is more exhilarating them fear Tom Hanks in the war. You'd never realised now that he was one of those emaciated, tortured souls who survived by some miracle. The horror of that death march at the town. His films have the pace of patient revelation. And time. To think. This is a beautiful beautiful part part of of the the country. country. It's It's the the rhythm rhythm of of a a director director who who lives lives not not in in New New York York or or L L A, A, but but on on 50 50 acres acres of of Walpole, Walpole, New New Hampshire, Hampshire, where where even even his his apples have history. So these air cuttings that were taken from trees at Monticello. Of course they are. We met Burns before the pandemic at 67. He has four daughters from two marriages, but his longest relationship for decades. Is with PBS unfortunate that PBS exists. I can go tomorrow to a premium channel or or someplace streaming service and get it. $30 million to Vietnam. But no one's going to say you can take 10.5 years can. This was the main bedroom. He couldn't take his time because he raises the money and runs his own company, Florentine films. Producers, writers, historians, editors and photographers craft a half dozen films at once, so Burns can release about one a year, even though a series like country Music takes eight years to finish. Country music, the songwriter Harlan Howard said his three chords and the truth is, if you listen to 15,000 songs sifted through more than 100,000 still photos And did 101 on camera interviews. Why so much? One would think that making a film is an additive process your building this? It's not. It's subtracted. The best metaphor I know of is we make maple syrup here in this town. And it takes 40 gowns of sap to make one gallon of maple syrup. And that's what the process is. Burns has boiled down the history of Mark Twain, the national parks plus 18 hours on Vietnam and 19 hours of jazz kins films touched Something at the heart of our mythology and who we have been. At our best in that are worse and who we want to be a composer Wynton Marsalis collaborated on jazz and country music. Marsalis is artistic director of New York's jazz at Lincoln Center and something of an expert on improvising with Ken Burns. He'll be vibrating. And that'll be in the fourth year of something, and it will be one o'clock in the morning after you've worked since nine o'clock in the morning. So now is one o'clock, so he's still like, No, no right here. We need to where we need to. In the sea, like a person with that type of energy and just on fire like that. And as he's grown older, he's gotten worse. So you know the fire's got bigger. The fire is the fires. And just the enthusiasm fired of passion can told us that you see him. So What do you say? You know for me? I always feel like a kid. If you can retain that childish What are in wonderment and belief that you can change things. If you can maintain that. And that's what I see in him.

But rather in Hayward Wisconsin town of twenty three, hundred people in the northern reaches of the United States where in January he can get down to minus seventeen degrees. This is where Dave Anderson, after years of trying out different business ideas decided to open famous Dave's barbecue in nineteen, ninety four. Today famous Dave's has about one hundred and twenty five locations nationwide making it one of the largest barbecue chains in the country. But the story of Dave's is also a story of how a simple passion for serving smoked ribs chicken and brisket Kim grow too big and too fast and how a founder of can almost lose complete control of a good idea. Dave Anderson grew up in a working class family in Chicago in the nineteen fifties and sixties both his parents were native Americans who grew up on reservations in different parts of the country. My Dad's a full blood choctaw Indian from idol.

A member of the Likud Ray Lake Superior Band of Ojibway says she grew up in Wisconsin he grew up in Oklahoma and how did they meet both of my parents? I think is the unfortunate part of my story where taken by the Bureau of Indian affairs away from their families and stuck an Indian boarding schools basically making orphans out of them now fortunately for me, though my parents met at Haskell Institute, for Indians, Lawrence Kansas so both just to clarify. So both your parents grew up on Indian reservations they met at a boarding school that I guess was where Indian kids from across the country were brought to I. Don't know. Basically to mainstream because my dad when he was brought into a boarding school didn't speak English. She was A choctaw speaking Indian and When he got put into these boarding schools, he can remember. Being beat in having this mouthwash dot with soap and tell e would forget his language and only speak English didn't happen Abraham Lincoln's Day or George Washington's Day. But this generation my parents I think that's a story that sometimes people in America never here. No, they don't what did your dad do for a living when you were a kid? My Dad was electricity and My mom was a secretary she worked as a secretary. So I was like a lot of kids that lived in a working class neighborhood and we didn't have a lot but we always had food on the table I think growing up though I always knew that my family was different because when all the other kids are going out for pizza and hotdogs especially. In Chicago being a great pizza town. Chicago hotdogs, my dad would load us up into the family car and we're headed down to south side of Chicago. For rips and growing up I. Knew every black owned barbecue joint in Chicago and I can remember as early as nineteen fifty-nine, nine eating rip tips at Limbs Barbecue and fifty nine hundred state street. Yeah I mean Chicago became obviously hugely important. As Barbecue. Capital because of the great migration. So many African Americans who migrated out of the Jim Crow South moved to Chicago and brought them their culinary traditions you the also brought blues, what a great combination in. So Chicago throughout the years has always been known as a great blues town down also great, barbecue. Dave as a kid. Did your mom and dad instill strong.

We heard from Democratic political strategist Karen Finney and Republican strategist Scott Jennings yesterday ahead of the debate, and they are here again this morning. Good morning to you both. Good morning. Scott. I want to start with you. You said yesterday you thought the mute feature of the ability to mute the candidates. Different intervals could actually work in Trump's favor. You called it a medicine that would help him because it would let him make his economic argument. Did it work? Did that happen? Yeah, It's always fun being right and Donald Trump last night, you know whether it was the mute button or whether it was his own personal self control. Finally. He actually let Joe Biden talk, and I think it also let Donald Trump think about what he wanted to say next, which then caused them to actually have a choice. Sort of a debate over policy, which is the way trumps always needed this election to be framed up. Now it's late. A lot of folks have already voted or made up their minds. But finally, for one night, we actually had a debate over policy, and Donald Trump sounded pretty good. So can what do you make of that Because some Republicans are supporters of President Trump had reportedly said, You know, we just need here. Joe Biden speak that He'll essentially forgive him along enough piece of rope that he'll hang himself. We'll make some kind of Gaff. What did you make of having that the space that move between them and the ability to let them both talk didn't work, divided? Well, I think it actually worked to both of their favor. I'm willing to say that and congratulations, God, I thought of you, actually, not without being so disciplined. I thought it's Scott actually talk to him because you know, and it does matter. I mean, look, my other critique. Obviously, most importantly of President Trump's performance was that a lot of what he said was still untrue. But you know, one of the things as communicator we know is that the tone of the style of what you say matters and and I certainly think the space between them aloud for more of a conversation. I certainly thought that Vice President Biden also had an excellent night. In that, you know, he was ableto be clearly talking about substance as well. I think a number of the hits from President Trump really didn't seem tto land. Quite so well. And there were a couple of pretty cringe worthy moments like the conversation about Children who had been separated from their parents that despite his demeanor, I don't think worked well for Trump and I think Again. Gave Biden the space to actually have a comment about that. Instead of just, you know, the kind of behavior we saw in the first debate. So I want Oh, I wantto ask about one particular moment. The moderator Kristen Welker of NBC, asked President Trump what he would say to Americans. Who have not liked how how he has talked about race or seem to exacerbate racial divides in this country, and this is how he responded. Let's by the state. Nobody has done more for the black community and Donald Trump. And if you look with the exception of Abraham Lincoln, possible exception, but the exception of Abraham Lincoln. Nobody has done what I've done. I mean, Republicans believe that Scott it discounts the actions of several previous presidents. I mean, Lyndon Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act in 1964, ending segregation. Yeah. I mean, I could do without the the bravado and the hyperbole about Abraham Lincoln. However, if you was that entire exchange, Donald Trump actually does have a story to tell When you talk about criminal justice reform and his support of the historically black colleges and universities, the economic numbers prick over it. He has a story to tell. And then he pivoted and said, What did you do while you were in office for the last eight years under Obama for for your 47 year career and actually take it take out the hyperbole about leaking, which, by the way, has always been patently ridiculous. The story. He could tell about what he did not too bad. So, aside from that I was happy with the case he brought on that.

Amy Coney Barrett & The State of SCOTUS

"So the topic I want to go to now is on the question timing the fact that this nomination is coming rather late in the fourth year of a president's term has made it controversial in fact, timing of just. Nominees to nominations to the supreme. Court has been controversial now for four or five years for a variety of reasons. So that's the first question. I would like each of you to tell me your position on on the question. Should the Senate be voting on a nomination to the Supreme Court right now sire you yes or no on that? I. Mean Yes. John All right cy you are yes. On the same question Irwin should the Senate be voting on a Justice of the supreme? Court now yes or no no amy honeybear bear should not be confirmed at this time. All right. Thank you I. Want to go first use for your reasons. Why are you a? Yes on the on the question of the timing of the nomination right now well, on the question of timing I think the Senate has the authority to consent the president is nominated someone. I don't see any reason why the Senate Caq Senate is doing other things it's it's considering thrown a virus relief. Of course, it can legislate until the members leave. and. So nothing nothing prevents the president from nominating someone nothing prevents Senate from acting upon that nomination and I think there three positions John. I think one position is you must vote on the nomination I. think that was Erwin's position for years ago. A second position is you can vote on the nomination, but you shouldn't that might ear ones position today and I the the middle position, which is you can vote on the nomination and you should. Thank your ticket back to you. So what I hear size saying is the Senate has every legal and constitutional right to be doing this now. They, certainly have the legal and constitutional right to do it, but they shouldn't do it. This is stunning hypocrisy by the Republicans for years ago Senator Mitch McConnell said, the American people should have a voice in the selection and the next Supreme Court justice. Therefore, this vacancies should not be filled into we have a new president. Antonin Scalia died in February two, thousand sixteen. President Obama named Mira Garland for that seat in March of two thousand sixteen. There was eight months before the election was to be held in the Republicans wouldn't hold hearings or wouldn't hold about Ruth Bader Ginsburg died on September eighteenth of twenty twenty, and already the Republicans are looking to fill that seat. There is historical precedent. On October twelfth eighteen sixty four chief justice Roger Tawny died the president Abraham Lincoln didn't try to fill the vacancy in the month before the election or nineteen fifty-six Justice Sherman Minton resigned from the court but President Eisenhower didn't try to pick the successor instead an October fifteenth. He made a recess appointment of a Democrat William Brennan. So whoever won the election would pick the successor? Alright let. Let me jump in because I I WANNA give cya chance to respond to some of what you're saying. So so I think we heard from Irwin saying that. eight months. was enough of a lead time and they were talking about the case of Merrick Garland back in two thousand sixteen. But that one month one and a half months is too short and he sites precedent of other examples where presidents had more of that timeframe. So what's your response to that? I think are ones making a slightly different point I think if. They. Can See had risen eight months ago I think are only making the same exact point, which is what's good for the goose is good for the Gander. So it's not really a question of timing. There's plenty of time as Irwin and other people now there there's GonNa be a vote in the Senate. The point is about equity I. Think the point is about precedent in Irwin has some precedents would, of course, you can go back to previous administrations in sight other presidents. John Marshall was appointed days before John Adams left the Presidency Steven Briar was nominated and appointed to the circuit court after Jimmy Carter lost. So there, there are precedents obviously for acting after the election. Let alone before I understand there's some raw feelings about what happened four years ago and I understand that people have flipped Irwin. Himself is flipped a apparently senator McConnell may have slipped as well. I think. It's unfortunate. This game of delaying nominations has gone on for quite a long. I have a colleague who waited two years before she withdrew for circuit court position because it wouldn't allow vote. That's just sort of power politics on both

Takeaways from the last presidential debate of 2020

"See Red states and blue states. What I see is American United States. Look, nobody knew what this thing was. Nobody knew where it was coming from what it was. We've learned a lot. The final presidential debate behind us now, about a week and a half away from the election of dozen days, really, or less. National Journal editor in Chief Jeff to four is with US. Live on Skype, Jeff. One thing we can say right out of the box. One does not come away from this exchange. With that throbbing headache. It was civil. You could follow the subject matter at least did that help either candidate, particularly that the temperature was far lower tonight? I think it still felt like like a bit of a draw to me. Just a lower temperature draw the last time you're right. I think if you if you beamed in here from 1992, it still would have seemed recognizable as a presidential debate. Starting even with the first segment they had on Corona virus strategy. They had some some back and forth, but it was pretty civil. We can list off the topics they discussed. Corona virus, immigration, health foreign policy. Our race with the last one, Can you even? Ah, Can you even remember what they discussed? And in what order? I'm not sure I can, and we talked about it for five minutes on air. What exchange? Did you find? Most interesting. Well, I I thought that the initial exchange on Corona virus really encapsulated What the what The knight was, If that's all you watched, you probably came out with a good sense of things. Trump said again, he said, this dozens of times it's going to go away. We're turning the corner. And he's saying this. As this week cases, air spiking and deaths are spiking again, just about everywhere. So it's just does not comport with the reality on the ground right now. The other moment that I think people are really going to seize on is when things turned to immigration and race, Trump Really held it together until then, for about an hour, And then, about an hour in they went to immigration. He again referred to murderers and rapists coming across the border from Mexico. And then he said, the only immigrants who show up for their hearings of the ones with quote really low IQ's So it was. It was a cringe inducing moment. And then on top of that they went to race, and he tried to say yet again that he's been the best president for Black Americans. Since maybe since Abraham Lincoln, which is Did overheated rhetoric to say the least. I'm not equivocating here. Anything that you've just said to now, Let's find out what Joe Biden did wrong. But I did notice, some stumbling, some stammering from Biden. That is an issue with him at debates. What were some of his weaker moments? It is. I mean, Trump wasn't there to interrupt him, But he interrupted himself more than more than a few times hey, tends to get caught up in his words loses his train of thought a little bit, especially when it came back to bite him, especially when he was trying to explain his health care plan. He did very, very well going at Trump about Trump's lack of a plan. But then, when he was called on to explain his own plan, it was it was hard to follow. Even for anybody who's been in that issue, much less for for a voter in their living room. Who's just coming to this issue right now? And what about the issue of Hunter Biden this laptop? We are trying to emphasize to callers to our newsroom that this New York Post story is full of red flags. It's It doesn't hold water, and until we get some more information, it's difficult to go with that laptop. For Biden story. That being said, Is that still a weak point for Joe Biden in some way. I sort of thought that exchange was was also a draw, and I think people probably voters. I think we're well served by the fact that they didn't spend that much time on it. And they didn't get a chance to really get deep in and litigate all the nitty gritty parts of this story because it's raise you say it's really hard to litigate right now. Biden, generally speaking didn't take the bait. He just would say. That's not true. Everything you're saying is not true. I've never accepted a dime from from foreign governments. He didn't really get into the into the sense ofthe weather. The laptop is Israel Whether the emails are authentic what his son was doing. He's just trying to keep T keep the focus on his own behavior, and whether or not he accepted money from foreign governments, and that was probably the smart thing to do to give it the least amount of oxygen possible. We'll talk again soon, Jeff, Thank you so much. You better take care that

"abraham lincoln" Discussed on Fresh Air

"The moral issues involved the stakes involved and to bring the issue of Slavery Front and Center, and that's what John Brown did. and. What about Abraham Lincoln you read about a speech he gave I think on the tenth anniversary of his inauguration was out it was. Yes And actually the speech was at the unveiling of a statue. In Washington DC, a statue that has currently been the source of controversy of Lincoln at the moment of emancipate and the current controversy is that the slave depicted is rising up to freedom that's artistic symbolism of it but the complaint is that wait the the slave should be the slave person now with the shackles off should be standing as tall as Lincoln. But anyway so Frederick Douglass. Was Sorely critical of Lincoln during the early phases of the war that Lincoln was not taking the position that this war is about slavery that Lincoln was denying the obvious fact that it was slavery that caused this and these ships slavery is going to have to be dealt with before this ended. But Douglas concluded finally after Lincoln embraced, the emancipation pry issued the emancipation proclamation and after the war turned out, well, that Lincoln was probably a better judge of American politics than Douglas himself was and so Douglas concludes that both men John Brown Abraham Lincoln. To the patient in the way it played out. I want to finish by coming back to where we started. This is a story about two men choosing very different paths in pursuit of justice one, you know radical and violent the other. Pursuing traditional politics as the route to change, and as you look at what we've seen in the streets of the United States and its political discourse. Over the past year Allen enough. I'm just wondering what? These stories you think tell us as we consider these issues. I hope they tell us relatively little because if they tell us a lot, it will mean that we are closer to a civil war than I hope and think we are but there is a lesson to be taken from this nonetheless, and part of the lesson is that every movement for social change requires the conscience of people like, John Brown. But people like John Brown sin can sometimes follow their conscience too far. Just because you're on the right side of history doesn't mean that you can't go wrong and no one would or should countenance the murders John. Brown was responsible for in Kansas or his efforts to start a war that might result in the deaths of hundreds or thousands of people so. We should look at John Brown as having the courage of his convictions but. Let's not take it to those extreme ends. Abraham Lincoln tells us that in American democracy. Real. Change lasting change comes only through the political system and it wasn't John. Brown's raid on harpers ferry. It wasn't even the man, the anticipation proclamation that ended slavery. It was the thirteenth amendment and Lincoln had known from the beginning the slavery would not end in America until the constitution was changed. And he was absolutely right. So maybe we need the conscience of the zealots of the extremists like Brown but we also need the pragmatism in the steady hand of the politician, the pragmatists like Lincoln. Will H W brands?.

The Pandemic Behind The Pandemic

"This episode, we're going to be talking about the most pressing issue of our time, and there's a statement that you cannot solve a problem that you don't understand. You cannot solve a problem that you don't understand and to take that a step further, you cannot solve a problem you don't know you have. Right now we're dealing with a worldwide pandemic and there are many pieces of this situation that are not being analyzed. It's such a broad wide ranging issue with many components and today when a break some of those things down in a reminded me of a statement and this was published in the journal Invention intelligence referring to Albert. Einstein. Stating that quote often the problem as given is misleading. And you have to work through a mass of data to define the real problem. Often this step consumes more time than deriving the solution. Einstein was quoted to have said if I were given an hour in which to do a problem upon which my life depended. I would spend forty of those minutes studying the problem fifteen minutes reviewing the problem. And just five minutes solving it. So today we're going to get a better understanding of the underlying problem the pandemic behind the pandemic. and. This starts for me with the report that I talked about back in April when this situation really began to kick off and it really was alarming and I wanted to make sure that people knew about this data. Now, here in the US, we had early access to some data because several other countries had experienced the ramifications of covid nineteen being spread throughout the population most notably Italy was really hit the hardest and their data really gave us an opportunity to be aware of our. Underlying susceptibility. To, Cope in nineteen to infectious diseases of really all types but specifically and looking at the data with covid nineteen after thousands of people lost their lives. The Scientific Advisor to Italy's Minister of Health stated that quote on re evaluation by the National Institute of Health only twelve percent of the death certificates have shown a direct causality from corona virus alone. While eighty eight percent of patients who have died have at least one pre morbidity in many times two or three. Pre existing chronic diseases that have become absolute pandemics in our today themselves have really left susceptible. And we had this data and even take it a step further and I talked about this the very beginning of the pandemic. This was published the Journal of the American Medical Association in April. This was back in April. This analyze data hospitalized Kobe nineteen patients in New, York City, which was really the epicenter of a lot of the the turmoil, the fallout. In an covered that already approximately ninety percent of people having severe reactions to Kobe nineteen or those with pre existing chronic diseases with the most common co morbidity is being hypertension, obesity and diabetes. And now in the real reason that this show is happening today, the just published a report. Updated on September thirtieth twenty. Twenty. Reiterated with the data has been showing us from the very beginning their official report stated that ninety four percent of the lives loss from covid nineteen. When people who had additional diseases they stated that for each death noted to be related to cope nineteen, there were on average two point, six additional conditions or causes for each death. Most notably type two diabetes and hypertension. This is not to say that covid nineteen has not been absolute destructive force. In our society. This is to say. That, these chronic diseases loaded the gun. In Cova nineteen pulled the trigger. Our susceptibility. Our underlying pre existing health conditions as a society sets up when I saw that data coming out of Italy, I was like all we're in trouble. We're in trouble here in the United States we're in trouble. And this is why today we're going to take a deep dive and really look at this issue we're going to get a face to face good look in the mirror at the issues that are underlying. So many of the problems experiencing. As. A culture, we cannot turn a blind eye to this stuff anymore. This is our opportunity to change things right now but we need to get face to face with this problem and we need to understand truly how bad it is in all the different components so that we can come to a solution because as Albert. Einstein. And by the way with all the quotes that might come from Albert Einstein or from Abraham Lincoln or whatever we don't know who said it whoever did is pretty SMART But in that statement of like if you've got. An hour for problem spending forty minutes on the problem itself studying the problem looking at all angles of it then reviewing your study of that problem. Right and then you spending five minutes on solution this because the solution will be much more effective. Much more poignant. When. You actually understand what you're trying to do. You actually understand the problem.

He leaves by the South Side exit and head to the saline next door to log. For his moment now, he's in the perfect place to enter the theater from front while his horse Waits at the back easy entrance easy Escape at 10:00 on leaves his Whiskey on the bar and exits Saloon. He walks to Ford's Cooley enters the front lobby and makes his way upstairs to the Dress circle on the second floor. It's crowded young actors on stage are playing to a packed house tonight.

He broke his left leg as he jumped onto the stage. If that's the case. He runs out of the theater mounts his horse and rides away with a broken leg. But historian Michael Kaufman doesn't believe John's version. He claims that John will break his leg when his horse trips and rolls over on him a few miles outside the city we can know for sure. Who's right. All I can tell you is that John has a broken left leg by the next morning, but let's not get ahead of ourselves a little to shovel from a hard ride home on meets up with Davey Harold on Cypress Hill about eight miles south east of Washington DC. Davey was supposed to help Lewis Powell attacks Secretary of State Seward, but left Lewis on his own a strong job young man doesn't volunteer that info to John the to head south hoping to outrun anyone who might come looking for them at 4 a.m. John's leg is definitely broken. So he and David stopped at the home of dr. Samuel Mudd now Sam has met John before but it's been a while and John looks terrible.

"That's a hard scene to move on from but we still have unanswered questions. What have Lincoln's killer. Where is John Wilkes Booth or his co-conspirators to get these answers. I need to go back to March 15th meet John and his accomplices and hear how they're planning to bring down. The union came about rewind Thursday. It's March 15th at gautier's restaurant on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington DC a group of six men sit in a private room eating a late meal and talking in low voices off. John Wilkes Booth leads the conversation the handsome mustachioed actor sits with Lewis Powell and George. Atzerodt Who we've already met John Sarah whose mother runs a well-known boarding house here in town and Michael a Lachlan and Samuel Arnold the only one missing from this Inner Circle of conspirators is round-faced Davey Harold, but John and the Others make plans. Anyway, here's the deal John has been circling around the idea of kidnapping link and since last year's election, he failed once and is chomping at the bit to try again. So he and his co-conspirators have just scoped out Ford's Theater on 10th Street Lincoln often attends shows there with John's inside knowledge and connections to the theater. It makes a perfect place to stash the president and hold him for the exchange of Confederate pows. Sera tells us quote after some difficulty. Everything was amicably arranged and we separated woke 5:00 in the morning close quote. Now. All they have to do is wait for Lincoln to go to a show but nearly a month later John is still waiting. I guess the president of a country wage war with itself doesn't go the theater. That much is Bobby Lee surrenders to you list at Appomattox and the fighting comes to an end John's playing grows from kidnapping to assassination. And that's why on April eleventh when John Davey and Luis are standing on the White House lawn listening to Linkin speak the Confederate sympathizing actor makes more than an idle threat phone number what John says after hearing Lincoln wax eloquent on reconstruction. That is the last speech. He will ever make by God. I'll put him through only three days later John sees an opportunity to go through with his long-anticipated plan a little after 10 a.m. On Friday April 14th. John goes to Ford's Theater to pick up his mail wage. See the actor doesn't actually have a permanent address. So he has his fan mail as well as his bills and personal letters sent here. While at the front desk John over here is a messenger requesting that to upper-level theater boxes be reserved for President Lincoln General Grant and they're guess like the soldiers. He never was John jumps into action across the afternoon the actor runs several important errands like renting a horse for getaway transport. Well John's out on Pennsylvania Avenue a carriage Rolls by with the Ulysses and Julia Grant inside if you listen, Julia will be at the theater. It's night. Why are they riding toward the train station right. Now the Curious actor mounts his horse and chases down the carriage. Julia describes smoked. We were nearing the railway station when a man overtook us Drew alongside and leaning down. Into our Carriage then he wheeled his horse and rode furiously away close quote John seems to have confirmed. Grants won't be at Ford's Theater tonight. That information doesn't distract him at 8:00 John meets with Lewis George and gave you to hand out the final assignment. It's time to put his plot to assassinate the president and leave the United States government leaderless into motion..

Spoke plainly war war waged on southern rights and institutions does the election proved it wait an overt act. He has till you are bound and plundered what Folly The South was wise postings of argument or patients when the finger of his enemy presses on the trigger people of the north to hate tyranny to love liberty and justice to strike it wrong and oppression off the teaching of our fathers the study of our early history will not let me forget it and may it never This country was formed for the white not for the black man and looking upon African slavery from the same standpoint held by the noble framers of our constitution home. I for one have ever considered it one of the greatest blessings both for themselves and us that God has ever bestowed upon a favored nation witnessed heretofore our wealth and off our witness their elevation and Enlightenment above their race else where I have lived among it most of my life and have seen less harsh treatment from mastered a man than I have long held in the north from father to son yet heaven knows no one would be willing to do more for the Negro race than I could I but see a way to still better their condition dead. But Lincoln's policy is only preparing the way for their total Annihilation the South are not nor have they been fighting for the continuance of slavery the First Battle of Bull Run did away with that idea there cause since for war have been as Noble and greater far than those that urged our fathers on even should we allow they were wrong at the beginning of this contest cruelty off Injustice have made the wrong become right and they stand now as a Noble Band of patriotic Heroes here after reading of their deeds Thermopolis will be forgotten when I aided in the capture and execution of John Brown.

Oh how I have longed to see her break from a list of blood and death that circles around her folds spoiling her beauty and tarnishing her owner, but no day-by-day has she been dragged deeper and deeper into cruelty E fresh until now in my eyes her once bright red stripes look like bloody gashes on the face of habit.

"Abraham where in the Lord's name Abraham you look in. Are You well. No I'm not Mary. I cannot cannot stand. Continue this path with you. I cannot marry you I am. Ill prepared in unfit for this role but this duty required of me very dear believe me. There's a shadow on my heart. Get Out Linkin at age. Thirty three an ancient bachelor by the standard of those times called old off the engagement. Not Quite Ready For Holy Matrimony. After Lincoln ran from the prospect of marriage he fell into deep case of the hypo writing in a letter. Are I am now the most miserable man living. If what I feel we're equally distributed to the whole human family. They would not be one cheerful face on earth but he and Mary later reconnected. At a social event after what many described as a tumultuous courtship the two eventually married on November fourth eighteen. Forty two you. As Lincoln was preparing nuptials. A friend asked where he was headed to. Hell I suppose was Lincoln's response. They had a dynamic and colorful full relationship on the one hand she was trusted adviser to him and continually support his political ambitions on the other hand their personalities and way of life clashed lashed he cared little about his entire image was everything to her. He was calm got along with everyone. She was quick tempered and coralled with just about everybody from how staff to his friends and even political advisors Lincoln and Mary had four children. All Boys. Only the oldest Robert lived into adulthood. He later served in Republican administrations. Little Edie died of a long illness when he was only three years old Springfield Illinois before Lincoln left for the White House. US William Thomas Three years apart and mischievous little codgers. According to their father both moved into the White House with Marian Lincoln the boys. I've had friends over and owned many pets including ponies and goats the goats will even pull carts inside the White House. Lincoln was known for Being an affectionate father carrying the boys on his shoulders so they could touch the rafters in the White House however he was often gone and therefore unavailable to the boys leaving leaving Mary much of the child rearing when they were permissive. Parents Allowing William Thomas or Tad short for tadpole to run wild in the White House but feisty I e boys brought cheer to an often damper mood due to the war yet. Tragedy hit the Lincoln family once again when Willie came down with a fever most most likely typhoid who died when he was only eleven years. Old Lincoln mourned and Willie's room for two days and refused any correspondence for another four days. As Mary was inconsolable holding seances in the White House and attempt to connect with her dead son Mary. Todd's mental and emotional stability eventually eventually deteriorated especially when tad passed at eighteen years old six years after Lincoln's assassination. We'll return to our story in just a moment. And now back to the life of Abraham Lincoln in referring to Lincoln's family and marriage to marry. It is worth noting a controversial question. There is a contentious debate among historians and scholars over Lincoln in sexuality. Meaning was Abraham Lincoln Gay some claim he wrote love letters to his roommate and lifelong best friend. Joshua the speed others contend beyond this that he was indeed homosexual and continued to sleep with men throughout his presidency but several historians point to the fact that he was a staple staple at certain brothels before he was married although he did share a bed with Joshua that was a common practice in those days without many hotels traveling men often shared the bed with two or three other men. Also close friendships between men were more common and society permitted more emotional intimacy than what is thought of as normal for today and as I mentioned earlier after Lincoln broke off his first engagement to Mary. Todd he fell into a depression and the following year Joshua became engaged. Gauged to Fanny Henning. Then it was Joshua who was overwhelmed by depression both men it seems were paralyzed with fear at the thought of intimacy with the woman Lincoln wrote a letter to his good friend. Consoling him when this show reach you. You will have been fanny's husband several days. You Know My desire to befriend and you is everlasting. That will never cease while I know how to do anything and she will always hereafter be on grounds that I have never occupied and consequently if advice for needed I might advise wrong. I would desire you. Give my particular respect to fanny but perhaps you will not wish to know you have received this less. She should desire to see it. ps I have not been quite a man ever since he left despite the nature nature of their friendship in either capacity the two companions didn't always see eye to eye deep within the very soil of our land that all men have certain unalienable cleanable rights is that not the sacred ground we so defended against the tyrants Britain a land of freedom for the White Man Abraham for all all men Joshua every man deserves the opportunity to rise in the morning without shackles around his neck so that he might indeed rise to his own greatest. Data's potential. Your politics are blasphemous. You are no longer the humble man who came to me in need near a score ago I am him he he is i. We are one of the same. Can One not expand his views yet still remained rooted in itself. The whigs have expanded you into who an arrogant and irrational food lay. They have opened my eyes. Then I no longer know you wide eyed friend. Perhaps this is our a final parting. Goodbye Abraham Joshua Joshua don't be foolish despite their differences Lincoln and speed remained close friends until his death and Lincoln's ability to articulate his side without alienating knitting those against him proved to be a great strength in his career as a lawyer and politician while serving in the Illinois state legislature. Lincoln taught himself. Mm Self Law passed the bar and in nineteen thirty seven started practicing. He moved to Springfield and became a successful attorney representing presenting big companies and individuals in a respectable manner. He earned the nickname and reputation. Honest Abe but Lincoln had his sights set on more than and just law ambition for life in politics glowed in his eyes. He was eventually elected to Congress but served only one term due to an informal one term rotation system Lincoln's unpopular stance on the Mexican war claiming James Polk not the Mexican started it as well as opposing any land gained from the war. Becoming slave territory cost a successor. Stephen t Logan the seats in Congress discouraged by the defeat he felt was his fault. He returned to Springfield appealed to practice law but not for long. He was thrust back into politics with the passing of the Kansas Nebraska. Act which divided the lines for slave and the free states even more sharply. It revoked the ban on slavery in the Louisiana Purchase territory north of a certain line of demarcation opening Kansas Territory Tori to slavery a civil war between pro and anti slavery factions erupted in Kansas and almost seven year precursor to the bloodiest war are ever fought on American soil before eighteen. Fifty four Lincoln had said little about slavery yet by opening in all of the Louisiana purchase territory to slavery north of thirty six degrees thirty minutes. Lincoln believed the Kansas Nebraska. Act Had reversed the course of the founding in father's well he believed when they adopted the Declaration of Independence and enacted the northwest ordinance of seventeen eighty seven barring slavery from most of the existing existing territories the founding fathers were against the spread of slavery. That was why Lincoln was so bothered. The Kansas Nebraska Act was going directly against against with the great leaders of our nation had intended so lincoln ran as the candidate for senator but lost by a slim margin once again. He went back to Springfield film to practice law but continued in politics helping to form the Republican Party in eighteen fifty six a party. Based largely on keeping the union whole and taking a stance against slavery slavery is a monstrous injustice at deprives a Republican example of its just influence in the world enables the enemies of free institutions with plausibility to talk says hypocrites with the Kansas Nebraska Act. A Republican Publican. Robe is soiled and trailed in the dust lettuce ripe europhile. Let's readopt the declaration of Independence and and with the practices and policy which harmonize with it. During the party's convention. He lost a bid for the nomination as vice president and that year the Democratic Credit candidate James Buchanan won the presidency a major victory for the south three years later. Lincoln ran again as a senator against Stephen Douglas. The two had more than just political competition boiling at one time Douglas had also courted Mary. Todd their beef went way back. The two opponents entered into a famous series of heated debates house divided against itself cannot stand it can and and it has so explain to our townsfolk. Why the country cannot continue to exist? Half slave and half free has it has for the past seventy years. I believe this government cannot endure as such permanently half slave in half free it will eventually become all one thing or all all the other and only one is righteous your rhetoric about slavery optimist extinction will only drive the south into secession. And is it not true. You believe in Negro equality. I believe all men deserved Fredo. Oh you in favor of conferring upon the Negro the rights and privileges privileges of citizenship. Do not speak on racial equality to the white man. Merely a human being's right to be free. India desire desire to turn this beautiful state into a Free Negro Colony. It altered that when Missouri Abolish slavery she can send one hundred thousand emancipated page slaves into Illinois to become citizens and voters on an equality with yourselves. Lincoln lost the election once again left to lick his wounds but his performances at the debate gave him notoriety throughout North Lincoln. used his downtime to help. Develop the Free Labor ideology which was at the core of the Republican value.

"Abraham Lincoln was born on February twelfth eighteen nine in a small log cabin in Hardin County County Kentucky. His mother and Father Thomas and Nancy Lincoln were humble illiterate farmers. Lincoln's father was barely able to sign his name. He also oh had an older sister. Sarah Sarah and Abraham grew up on a farm where he learned to wield the axe help his father chop wood and carve a house in a farm out of the hardwood forest. Nothing in his humble beginnings would ever suggest he would rise to president of the United States. Lincoln attended school only intermittently because his health was required on the farm however he did learn how to read he developed a voracious appetite for books devouring as many as he could get his hands on. Tragedy struck the Lincoln home when at the tender age of nine years old his mother. Nancy died of milk sick. A disease likely caused caused by wild poison. The cows ingested Nancy's death gravely effected young Abraham Making Matters Worse. Nancy had acted as a buffer between Lincoln Gin and his father who did not get along very well with Nancy. Gone Abraham Thomas Lincoln clashed even more Abraham disdains the life of a backwoods woods farmer. He was also deeply bothered that he had to turn over any side wages to his father before he was of age so for example if he helped neighbor with work Thomas. Lincoln kept all of Abraham's earnings. Some speculate that his scorn for this law in part led to sympathy for slaves who were denied the fruits of their own labor. Adding to the contention was Lincoln's opinion of the old man who he saw as lazy and unintelligent his father reciprocated the feeling thinking linking Lincoln the Lazy One because he preferred reading over farmwork. Boy I done told you already to put that book down and get on out to the field them. Corns ain't picking themselves. Yes Paul Gimme that damn thing. Why don't ask the questions around here? I told you to hand it over now. Hand it over but it's mine Paul. He ain't doing no harm except making you lazy son of a bitch on my farm. That's not true. I do my share Pau. These books teach me so one day one day. What boy I can do something more than just sign my name? I ain't got no use for lazy dog on my farm and you know what I do too lazy dogs don't you. Lincoln didn't invite his father to his wedding. He didn't even make the eighty mile journey to visit his father on his deathbed despite his father's request if we can meet now it's doubtful whether it would not be more painful than pleasant in eighteen. Twenty eight Lincoln finally left the farm to work on the riverboat hauling freight which ran down the Ohio and Mississippi River to New Orleans. This was also as first exposure to large scale slavery and slave auctions. Two years after his riverboats stint Lincoln helped his family moved to Illinois in eighteen thirty one he settled in new Salem where he worked various jobs. As postmaster mill hand in a failed shopkeeper it was here he met Ann Rutledge. There's been debate over whether or not. They were lovers up until the nineteen nineties. It was disputed because there were not many references to an Lincoln's letters however academia now accepts reminiscence based I oral history many of those accounts from locals in new Salem testified in the nature of their relationship and are now widely accepted. An rutledge was a beautiful young. A young woman with Auburn hair and striking Blue Eyes Lincoln met and when he was twenty two and she was eighteen like Lincoln. She also came from a humble background. But Lincoln was poor and lacked training of a trade making him unsuitable for marriage so a wealthier gentleman John. McNamara Korda Dan and they were set to be married McNamara left to New York to attend to family matters never returned ultimately abandoning his fiancee. Now our prominent bachelor in new Salem Lincoln allegedly proposed and she accepted on the condition that I she and her engagement to McNamara in person mm-hmm but tragedy struck before that was possible when Ann came down with typhoid fever and passed away in eighteen eighteen. Thirty five the epitaph on a new headstone at an original burial place reads where Lincoln wept. After Ann's death. Lincoln slipped into a deep depression. Some historians suggest to even suffered a nervous breakdown. Depression what he referred to as the HYPO short for hypochondria area is a condition. Lincoln battled his entire life. Thankfully it wasn't severe enough to impede his ambition. Lincoln's I I tumble in. Politics was as supporter of the whig. Party the WHIG party was founded as an anti-establishment response to the Democratic President Andrew Jackson it was accused of being a party for the elite and wealthy but voting records showed in addition to being pro business. It favored social justice in the education in prison. Systems Lincoln ran for state legislature as a whig candidate in eighteen. Thirty two but lost. This defeat didn't stop him though he ran again in eighteen thirty four by this time formerly a member of the whig party and one and again in eighteen thirty six thirty eight and forty during this time period. He met Mary Harry Todd. I've faced the well educated high society woman. Although Lincoln was awkward with women and the two came from opposite sides of life. They became engaged engaged in eighteen. Forty where is he. He's coming.

You think oh we're all saved but then he's just he's just like all right. You're better applauding than i am so i'm just gonna assume that that's the correct answer. Even though it strikes me as utter hogwash regardless i look forward to the day whenever it comes when abraham lincoln returns to take back what is rightfully his way. What about term limits so if it's your version giants don't abraham lincoln is just an extension of existing abraham lincoln. He can't be president because he's already been president well he. I i would argue. He didn't get to serve out the full second term. Let's so maybe we could make an exception john too soon for that. I i think it's a good point. I'm glad that's where we started today. John i do for some reason and somehow i feel a little bit better after having answered that that question yeah. I think we're gonna be fine. It'd be there in just need giants. Don't abraham lincoln to come and remind us that it's not necessary to have a four hundred hundred and eighty day presidential election season. That's not a season. It's many years but what if giants don't abraham lincoln as a thirty five year presidential until the election season where he just talks to people. He's on a listening tour yeah. He's on a listening tour. That sounds nice. I think probably the biggest surprise for giant stone. Abraham lincoln would definitely view weird right to be reimbursed like suddenly back to life when you died eighteen sixty five but i think the weirdest thing would we being giant and stone no no yeah no it wouldn't be that your giant and stone it wouldn't be like cars or airplanes are antibiotics or any of that.
