DeSantis Vs. Trump; Who Should Win?

"In the straw polls or whatever term would be used in the polling in Iowa and other states desantis is more favored than president Trump. I beg Trump supporters to understand that any Republican is better than any Democrat. That the gulf is unbridgeable. That's it. That's all I'm asking, I'm asking of people, I was a passionate defender of the president, I claim to this day, I said to his face at Mar-a-Lago a few months ago, thought he was the finest president in Abraham Lincoln. Kink a more supportive than that. But my bigger agenda than Donald Trump is defeating the Democratic Party, which is now a left wing party for the first time in American history. It was largely liberal. It is now left, and the left destroys everything it touches.

Understanding the Jimmy Carter Legacy

"Senator, I want to fast forward from Wilson, not yet to Obama and posit Jimmy Carter. You write on page 33 of only the strong about the deep sense of shame James fallows talked about for evading the draft. I've long thought that my generation was conflicted over Vietnam. I came in after Vietnam, but the people who skipped out on Vietnam versus my brother in law who fought it had a deep emotional divide. They were never going to be able to overcome. And that it manifested itself in politics in an unspoken way. You articulate that. So obviously you've thought about what Carter and the Vietnam era did to us, how did that play into the wilsonian hostility towards American exceptionalism? Well, Wilson openly repudiated the American founding and the moral basis of our country. Once you lose that moral foundation cue as Abraham Lincoln warned about in his great speeches and letters in 1850 1960s, it's not a very far slide into repudiating America itself. And that's what the new left did in the 1960s, especially leading up to Vietnam. I think

Anthony Fauci Was Never Elected...

"Fauci was never elected, okay? So no one ever went to a ballot box. And so you know I want to give him a bunch of power. He was largely unknown up until the virus, and he had unlimited amounts of power. I make the argument that Anthony Fauci and it's a great learning lesson. Has anyone ever had as much power as Anthony Fauci had for 18 months in American history? And okay, well then you could ask me who maybe not, that's fine. Maybe you're agreeing with me or not. I don't know. But the power to lock down your kids from going to school, the power to literally control the breathing of an entire generation. The power to kick people out of a military for not that of the military for not taking mRNA, gene altering technology. That's an incredible amount of power. And even if a president has had that kind of power, let's say Abraham Lincoln had that power. At least he was voted to office, at least someone said I want you to be in a position of authority and in some ways Anthony Fauci became the sovereign and Anthony Fauci became a lot more powerful and important than the American people. So then you say, how on earth do we restrain that? Well, this is why we need a complete and total constitutional reset in our country right now. Whereas that whatever the new Congress is, whoever takes power, there needs to be a mass check and balance campaign. And I think a purge of this administrative state in the fourth branch of government. And this is something I really want to kind of, whether you live in Missouri or Kansas, both Missouri and Kansas, I think, have been abused by the federal government for far too long. You have allowed the federal government to misrepresent you for so long. There is so much power in the states and never before, probably since the American Civil War hasn't been this bad,

Abraham Lincoln Was Very Torn by the Carnage of the Civil War

"Was very torn by the carnage that was going on in the United States during this time. It racked him, constantly, is the death that was going on and frankly, he felt for the war itself on both sides that was very felt personal. But he was very committed to making sure that the union would prevail. That the United States would again be the United States. And he may really something that was really a concept that came out of this is that America in America was both a place and a concept and I've heard this express it was a physical location and an idea. When you think of America, it is, it is not just the location that we're in, but it is a concept of freedom and the individuals. And we the people and there's so much that goes into that that can't be related to a single place, a single time. And Lincoln was one who believed that you saw it in this speech. And let's break that down because I think it's so important today. When I see the political infighting, when I say both Republicans and Democrats, going at it, and what is sometimes outside the branding of civil discourse outside the branding of normal debate. We've got to get back into the idea that we can debate issues debate ideas. And at the end of the day, disagree with each other, we might not want to go have dinner with each other, but at the end of the day, you know, realizing that except in the most, this is not an issue of evil and people being inherently evil because they hold these that are different from mine. Now there are certain ideas that I frankly hope that, you know, especially when it comes to life and those kind of things that I do believe that are not proper, but at the same point in time in a course like we have in our United States, this is the kind of discourse that we have. We've got to convince each other of our right ideas. They may be things that we can't understand and they may be evil in our side, but at a certain point in time, we've also got to remember we're a society in which the idea and the concept, the idea of America is that we have these freedoms that come together and mesh into one.

What Makes a Great Speech?

"Space that comes up and people have asked me about is the famous speech from Abraham Lincoln, which is the Gettysburg address. Now, we've done Abraham Lincoln's speeches and is a president from as an inaugural perspective and others, but we've never done the Gettysburg address, which is an interesting in the midst. And I think some of this came up in the discussion one day of this, what does makes a good speech? And, you know, when you're out in talking about speeches and when you're giving speeches, you get into these things. And you have the joke, some people say, you know, my former strucker told me the best speeches have a great ending and a great closing and have them very close together. You know, it's funny, people laugh, but the reality is, what makes up the dynamic of a speech and I wanted to talk a little bit about this before we get into the actual Gettysburg address today, is it's not always the length. It's not always the, the content, it's not even the opening or the closing. It's how number one is delivered. Number two, it's what is being said. And number three actually connecting to the audience. In a very real and tangible way. Now, sometimes that can be done and I've used this to great effect. And using a speech in which I use humor. And sometimes self deprecating humor. Others is just, you know, you're getting people laughing. I believe that speech is so many times are really good when you have a humor element in those speeches. Because when people laugh, they learn. They're relaxed. It doesn't. It breaks up, you know, many times the monotony of listening.

"On the right win in 2022 in November next month, to me, democracy looks like it's over in America, fascism is here to stay. And if they lose, we get maybe another insurrection, domestic terrorism, a Civil War God forbid. Maddie Hassan MSNBC with a strange definition of fascism if the Republicans win the election, then fascism has arrived. I guess the majority picking who should be in Congress is Marie Hussain's definition of fascism. I know somebody who will have a very different one. Presidential historian former media mogul, financier, judicial reform advocate, and just an all around good friend of the show, lord Conrad black, welcome back to America first. Thanks, Sebastian. I'm delighted to come back and listen to such rubbish. I mean, what that man said. I mean, this is the representative of one of the leading networks. Yes. Democracy is fascism. Now, in fact, fascism as those of you who are listening to are interested are aware was in fact a bunch of street bullies wearing black shirts bearing symbolically the faces as symbol of the authority of the Roman Republic, the Caesars and Julius Caesar anyway. And marching upon Rome and installing an authoritarian government, apart from that Mussolini, he was essentially just one of history's more spectacular scoundrels, though an able man in many ways. I made it up as he went along, but he fell under the spell of Hitler and ended up being shot by communists and hung upside down a gas station. That's fascism. With his girlfriend, hung upside down. And how you equate that to the Republicans winning an election, which happened when Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt and Dwight Eisenhower and Ronald Reagan, for example, were elected. How you equate that to the Republicans winning an election. I think that's something of psychiatrists and people who deal with severely deranged people would have to have to survey. But let's

Sen. Doug Mastriano Addresses the Key Issues Facing the Keystone State

"Said Doug master yano that this is looking like a record year for homicides in Pennsylvania. This is under Josh Shapiro. How long has he been in this position? He's been our attorney general for 6 years and on top of all this Eric. Of course, the Democrat playbook is dull debate your opponents call them names and then pretend you're a champion of women rights. So we passed a bill out of the house and Senate and General Assembly in June. To protect female athletes from being dominated by men, you know, to defend females from male domination in their sports. And of course, Josh Pierre fought against that and he rejoiced when governor won't be to that Bill. To make matters worse, this time last year, Josh appeared fought to allow boys and the girls bathroom. I'm sorry to allow boys and the girls bathroom in Pennsylvania. And then on top of all that, he sued in an amicus, Virginia. This time last year, that happened where boys were allowed into girls bathroom. This time last year in loudoun county, a girl was raped. This time last year, the dad found up a school board covering up and then he went to the school board to confront them and he was hauled out handcuffs. Josh Shapiro was on the wrong side of all the issues that mattered of Pennsylvania. And so the contrast was very stark. You have the continuation of radical, dangerous policies on a Josh Shapiro, or a new birth of freedom. And I'm using those words cautiously. Those are from Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg address here. But we need a new birth of freedom. We need the power to return back into the hands of the people rather than a centralized approach in Harrisburg.

"Your opinion on how the current how the midterm landscape is shaping up? Well, I'm a simple man, as you know, Charlie, right? A simple man. Two years ago today, America had the most vibrant economy on earth. On earth. Now, our economy is a shambles. And people have to make a living, our paying much, much more for the basic necessities of life. One party did that. The Democratic Party. That's it. Now I'm not a party guy. I mean, registered independent. I follow everybody. I watch everybody. I can't imagine and I'm not being supercilious word of the day. Supercilious. I can't imagine any American pulling the lever for a Democrat. If you do that, you're voting for an even worse economy, an even worse border problem. Even more violent crime, you're voting for all of that. Is that what you really want? Is that help you? So I can't imagine the Democrats get any votes. No votes. This is these two years of President Biden. And I hope your viewers enlisted to go to Bill O'Reilly dot com because we fact based it out. We're not ideologues or emotion or anything. It's just fact based. Next to James, if you can, and the president before Abraham Lincoln, who basically stoked the Civil War. Biden's been a worst president's first two years in history.

"Give us a state of not the union, but the state of the English speaking peoples relationship? Where is that entity today? What is the health of that entity that Churchill so well described? Let's look at it from the American side. It is in danger because we have a political class and a media class. That preaches the ability of the United States. And by extension, the British Empire. An empire that on its deathbed saved western civilization. All things are denigrated. Churchill's statue was covered in graffiti. Parliament square Abraham Lincoln is ripped down in on the Boston common. The secretary of veterans affairs this week is putting the final touches on. Removing Abraham Lincoln's words from veterans hospitals. And buildings, the words of the second inaugural address that we shall care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and with what justification. It's not inclusive. It's misogynist, it's anti homosexual. Those are the words of the soon to depart congressman. Who has the veterans administration ever not treated minorities homosexuals? Absolutely. But this is part of a larger effort to de legitimize American history. And delegitimize our place on the planet. We are the freest people. Our institutions are a bulwark against tyranny. We've sacrificed more for others. I mean, if you look at the United States and Britain in the lifetime of my parents, the only two nations in the history of the world to have offered a helping hand to all the peoples of the world, including their enemies.

Jeff Myers Believes God Calls Christians to Get Involved in Politics

"Are a lot of people who say, don't get involved in politics because they represent interests of people whose interests would be harmed if Christians did get involved in politics. There are some good hearted people who just say, you know, Christians should not be involved in things like that. And they're consistent. They don't want Christians to be police officers. They don't want Christians to serve in the military. It's a very small group overall of Christians, but in America, I assume most of the audience we're talking to you right now is would be made up of Americans. But in this country, Abraham Lincoln said, we have government of the people by the people and for the people. So how are you going to obey your authorities, Romans, chapter 13? You have to be involved. Otherwise you're disobeying God. Now, that's a huge piece, Jeff. What you just said there, right? I read, I have a book coming out called letter to the American church where I try to break down how is it that so many in the church got confused on this and have really been misapplying Romans 13 and misunderstanding it. Because many leaders, many Christian leaders are misapplying it and misunderstanding it just as they did in the 30s, which led to the satanic nightmare of the Holocaust and of what Hitler was able to do because believers misunderstood the scriptural mandate. It's a horrifying thing when the church messes up. And when we kind of buy the lies of the world and we say, well, I'm not going to be involved in this because God is looking to us to be involved in this. If you care about the poor, if you care about the marginalized, you better get involved in all this stuff. And you better speak up against those who are doing things that, whether they know it or not, are harming those people. So this is something that it's almost like things had to get this bad for people to wake up. But I mean, this statistic almost 30% of Americans getting more involved, I think, wow. This is just good news. And I hope that number increases.

Republicans Shouldn't Be Fixated on Lake

"So I have this question and I'm very curious to hear your response to this. So Carrie Lake is running for governor of Arizona. I'm in Arizona. And I see a big poster on camelback road, a major road here in Phoenix. And it's Carrie Lake, for governor and half the picture is Donald Trump and half the pictures carry Lake. My take and I'm not certain that I write, but my take is that since the Trump supporters are already going to vote for her, presumably. You need to win by reaching out to people who are independents or Republicans who are ambivalent about Donald Trump for the record I thought he was the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln. But I am not fixated on him. I am fixated on the left. Which is the greatest mistake Republicans everywhere are making. They are running against their opponent. They are not running against the Democratic Party.

"May seem like a bit of a surprise, but I'm going to say a few words and praise of Adam kinzinger. What Adam kinzinger, the guy who the guy who decided to vote well, he voted for Trump's impeachment. He's been on the January 6th committee with Liz Cheney. But here's a key difference. Adam kinzinger has a little bit of self recognition. Liz Cheney does not have any. I mean, let's start with Liz Cheney. I mean, the idea of getting absolutely routed in your primary. And think of it. You got the Cheney dynasty. You've got all the money you have outspend Harry and hagerman. Harriet hagerman is a kind of a nobody. She comes out of nowhere and no political experience. She's running against you. And you lose by like, what, 35 points, 40 points, according to Trump. I mean, this is humiliating. A normal person would be like, oh my gosh, I don't know if I can show my face in public at the very least, I've got to recognize I did something to offend my own base. I insulted my own voters. I gave them the middle finger. Now they're giving me the middle finger. This is not good. But it would lose Jaime. None of that. You basically, I'm like Abraham Lincoln. I'm like general grant. My loss is really a victory onto the bigger ones now. This is like this shows a level of psychotic delusion that it's hard to even know. I mean, this is somebody with a ridiculous, absurd ego. And I mean, politicians have big egos, but this is the limit. Now, now contrast this with kinzinger, who I think at least recognizes that he got clobbered by Trump. In fact, he was asked, did he does he believe that he quote won in the feud with Trump? And he goes, no, he goes, he goes, Trump won. He was evidently interviewed by WGN, and here are skins that are quote. Yeah, he won in the short term at least. So, you know, he kinzing is trying to minimize it, but nevertheless he admits,

Republicans Are 'Simping' for Democrats

"So I had to look on the urban dictionary to make sure that if you guys forget what I said, you can always go look at it on the urban dictionary. If it's something on the show that I say that you don't know what I'm talking about because you don't live in the south or you didn't grow up it where I grew up at, then just look it up on urban dictionary. Now the word simping and the way is described on the urban dictionary is when you are infatuated over a woman, are you infatuated over a woman and allowed them to take over your mind and cause you to do things that you would not normally do, right? So a person is simping after a woman, that means if you think a woman is so fine, he just starts, he'll do anything for that woman. I mean, she has literally running his life, and he is willing to die for this woman and do things that he would never do before and has never done before. And that same thing is what I consider some of these Democrats are doing. Some of these Republicans are doing for the Democratic Party. I said, they're simping. They're literally allowing the affection, I would say fake affection from the Democrats, like Liz Cheney was to control their mind and make them do stuff they would never do.

It's truth. You stick to the truth, the truth will set people free. Compromising keeps people interfered in the middle and lost and confused and the person who's the most evil will take advantage of the confusion in the middle. Democrats are more evil than the Republican Party. So that's why they can claim to meet you in the middle.

And the bulk of our days were, you know, we did all of the English and history and everything math and everything that everybody else did. But we had huge part of our days, which was on your instrument, which was music theory, music history, your specific performance group, whether it was orchestra or marching band or choir and you had full jazz bands. There was literally multiple march events and multiple orchestras for the younger newer group that was less experienced and then there was more sophisticated groups. Just like any sort of school that had a major athletics program. Freshman, you know, thing you'd have, you know. The fact that they dedicated though the entire floor to a music department. You see high schools all across the U.S. even today that are all about athletics, you know, you go to Texas, you go to Florida, some of these places, it's all about sports. So to see somebody dedicate and to be quite honest with you way ahead of their time and doing so. Amazing. So that's pretty impressive. And in an inner city school. I mean, people wondered how they got the money for it or even. But this is when he was a pretty smart lady and she found out that there was a rule in Chicago schools that if you weren't back in the 50s, all the schools had or more schools had music programs and stuff. And as you went along by the time I was in high school and so I think 72 or whatever. That had fallen apart more. And she found out that if you weren't using your instruments, another school could come and take the instruments that you had that were just sitting there. Wow. She literally went around the city, taking musical instruments. And then what she did is she hired a guy that repaired instruments from violins to trumpets to whatever. And had this person come in and set up shop in there was literally on a daily basis, repairing instruments, but also that was another class for us. You would come in and you would learn how to repair a violin, how to repair this instrument or that instrument. Yeah. I mean, this was like all inclusive. Everything you could think about music program and inside an inner city. And that's how we got so much so many of the instruments though. What an amazing woman, huh? Yeah, yeah, I got a gentleman.

"abraham lincoln" Discussed on Based On a True Story

"This episode of based on a true story was produced by me, Dan lefevre. I'd like to thank doctor Brian Dirk for sharing his expertise about the historical accuracy of 2012s Abraham Lincoln, vampire hunter. If you want to learn even more about the real Abraham Lincoln, check out doctor Dirk's great books, including his most recent one. The black heavens, Lincoln, and death. As always, you can find links to his books in the show notes for this episode, as well as on the show's home on the web based on a true story podcast dot com. Okay, now it's time for the answer to our two truths and a lie game from the beginning of the episode. And as a refresher, here are the two truths and one lie. Number one Abraham Lincoln was almost involved in a sword fight. Number two Abraham Lincoln really was a vampire hunter. Number three after his death, some drunk Irish counterfeiters tried to steal Lincoln's body. Did you find out which one is a lie? Let's start with number one. Abraham Lincoln was almost involved in a sword fight. That is true. As doctor Dirk explained, Lincoln almost had a duel with a man named James shields. And the weapon that Lincoln picked for the duel was broadswords. Even though Lincoln trained with the sword for the duel, fortunately, it didn't happen. That brings us to number two, Abraham Lincoln really was a vampire hunter. That's the lie. Despite the premise of the movie, as we learn throughout this episode, Abraham Lincoln was not a vampire hunter. Even though, as doctor Dirk pointed out, there are reviews of the movie out there asking that very question. So no, he was not a vampire hunter. That means number three is also true. After his death, some drunk Irish counterfeiters tried to steal Lincoln's body. Doctor Dirk shared the crazy story of how some drunk Irish counterfeiters in Chicago wanted to get their engraver out of jail so they thought they could steal Lincoln's body and use it as ransom to get their friend out of jail. Last, but not least, it's time now to let you know how long it took to create this episode. If you're a longtime listener to the podcast, you'll know I like to share this information. Just to help you appreciate all the podcasts that you listen to. After all, a huge majority of podcasts are like mine completely free to listen to. But that does not mean they're free to create quite the opposite. They can cost a lot of money, but almost every podcast out there even if it doesn't cost a lot of money, it costs a lot of time. The time it takes to learn the technical side to research each episode to record them to edit them and so on. But I only have the stats for my own show. So with that in mind, today's episode took me 25 hours to create and to make it clear that it's only my time. Doctor Dirk has spent years researching and gathering his expertise on Lincoln. So obviously it does not include any of that time. And to be more specific, that isn't even all of my time, because that 25 hours is only the time it took for me to produce this one episode. It does not include all the time that I spent building and maintaining the baseline a true story website, finding new guests, scheduling, and the logistics of all that, the email newsletter, social media, and all those other things that don't really have anything to do with making today's episode, but they're still required to make the podcast overall. In a nutshell, this podcast may be free to listen to, but it is not free to create. And that's why I'm so thankful for the sponsors whose ads you've heard in this episode. You can find more information about them over at based on a true story podcast dot com slash advertisers, but they're not the only ones helping to keep the show alive. There are wonderful people just like you who are helping to keep this show financially.

"With this vision abraham was able to take a more collaborative approach to win the war using his top advisors abraham even described his approach as mostly reactionary as he had no set plan of attack and how to manage his forces as such he was making decisions and giving commands based solely and his advisors in personal experiences. Up to that point it was also during the war that abraham would make one of his most iconic and memorable political decisions. The creation of the emancipation proclamation. Going back to abraham's earlier sentiments about slavery he had initially opposed it for its deep economic issues for the country. This opinion then evolved into his more well known beliefs and personal freedoms and the morality of slavery being inherently wrong abraham wanted to balance the eradication of slavery with the preservation of the union ultimately. This was his main goal in something that he was willing to compromise over if it meant the end of the war in eighteen sixty two abraham was quoted when asked by a reporter as to why he wasn't fully supporting emerging anti-slavery laws abraham said my paramount. Object in this struggle is to save the union in his not neither to save or to destroy slavery. If i could save the union without freeing any slave i would do it and if i could save it by freeing all the slaves i would do it and if i could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone i would also do that. During the civil war there existed border states in the union that were practising slavery. Abraham was concerned that if he would enforce or support anti-slavery legislature he would lose the much needed military support of these border. Union states on january first eighteen. Sixty three the emancipation. Proclamation was issued with several caveats in exclusions for those union slaveholding states while few slaves were actually freed under the emancipation proclamation. It was the beginning of a wave of federally mandated freedoms that would be finally granted to enslave people throughout the country. Abraham i saw the impending change towards a nationwide distancing from slavery for the united states outside of the areas that relied heavily for commerce which were mostly based in the south. It was on this platform of anti-slavery which was unlike any stance he'd taken before that abraham would be reelected during the war funny enough. Even abraham question the validity of the laws he was an acting during the war. Following the emancipation falker. Mation abraham advocated for the thirteenth amendment which further granted additional freedoms to enslave people throughout the country. Instead of just in the confederacy the thirteenth amendment reads as follows neither slavery nor involuntary servitude. Except as a punishment for crime where the parties are have been duly. Convicted shall exist within the united states or any place subject to their jurisdiction. This amendment officially made slavery illegal in the united states. It was almost tied of radical change. That abraham would be touted as revolutionary for the country. The civil war was still going on strong. But abraham was garnering much needed support from his followers author out the war abraham was not exempt from the regular responsibilities of politics. He had to maintain party relations within his own party. While managing his oppositions parties activities while there are many points to be rectified with the war abraham made it clear that he would consider any peace arrangement that included the reunion of the country and the eradication of slavery in the south abraham's advisors encouraged him to consider any offer for peace but after fighting for four long years the confederacy for saw their defeat and met with abraham to discuss terms of ending the war. Abraham made it clear that he would be open to any plans as long as the seceded states rejoined the union to groups had emerged during the war that called themselves the radicals and the conservatives. Each group had their own plan envision for rebuilding the country some based in partisan views in others in military strategy bringing the country together would not be easy especially after such a polarizing in devastating war. There were talks of seizing properties from slave owners and giving it to the formerly enslaved as well as military occupation of the south abraham had plans of his own as well that centered around the huge task of integrating the newly freed population within the country. Abraham even introduced the idea of granting voting rights to newly freed african americans especially those that had served in the union military. It was a daunting task. Bringing essentially two opposing groups with completely different wants to a commonly agreed plan. There was much opposition in turmoil between the northern and southern states on just what plan would be the best for coming together. The ending of the war didn't bring about a magical solution either just a few days after the official end of the civil war abraham decided to attend production at ford's theatre in washington. Dc if you recall. Abraham was always a fan of the arts and the theater. As abraham watched the play he was assassinated by southern. Extremists named john wilkes booth who was a strong supporter of slavery in the confederacy on april fifteenth. Eighteen sixty five. What is the most unfortunate about. This story is that abraham didn't live to see his true dream of bringing the country together successfully though without a doubt it would not have happened. Without his incredible bravery envision for the country's future as a person abraham was described as good natured down to earth and a spokesman for the common man as a leader abraham was described at steadfast dedicated to his country into the task at hand. Whatever that may be the farm boy with no education would grow up to become one of the most respected in revered men in the history of his country without personally knowing abraham it is obvious that above all else his ideology was one of honesty. In virtue abraham was even willing to compromise on certain aspects of his views in order to maintain the integrity of the country as a whole that requires a strength and a belief in what you know in your heart to be right that is unmatched during his time period abraham was compared to another who was also adored in a mired president george washington abraham lincoln is legendary for uploading his beliefs in the face of overwhelming pressure and opposition simply unyielding to anything that threatened his country. Even its own people. When abraham was assassinated newspapers around the world reported on the loss of an individual of supreme moral principle honest abe was just that and he didn't need to be anything more because it was just simple. Honest abe who changed the course of the country forever. You can check us out at made of metal podcast dot com. You can also follow us on instagram. Facebook made of metal podcast altogether.

"K. there everyone. My name is ari in welcome to made of metal a motivational podcast. Where we tell stories about regular people overcoming insurmountable odds so thank you so much. Everyone for joining me for the final part in the abraham lincoln series. I'm really excited to conclude the series as we get into one of my favorite tumultuous historical time periods in american history. That led to a major political and societal upheaval. I love a good revolution. So i lo- me personally. Just on a side note. I love reading the narratives that have emerged from this point in history from the soldiers perspectives. And i definitely enjoyed studying from the vantage point of the captain of the ship president lincoln. So where we left off. In the previous episode abraham had just been elected president of the united states during quite a volatile time for the country right before his inauguration. Several states has seceded from the union. Britney about one of abraham's worst predictions a nation divided on the brink of a civil war. So just to kind of like give you guys an idea of seceded. It just essentially means that these states chose to leave the country as a whole inform their own territory which essentially the south left the united states in form. Their own territory called the confederacy. The south in particular were beginning to stir up significant arrests that would spillover. End spark the dawning of a new era in the united states of america. I know it sounds like action movie but this is history all it is so interesting so real in there so much for us to learn from it. So let's get right into it. As abraham prepared for his transition into his presidency. He'd received word that a conflict was beginning to materialize at a us fort in south carolina between the union and the new confederate soldiers. Four sumter was being threatened by the confederacy and their soldiers outside the fort were demanding to take it over beginning to intimidate the union troops within their tactics involved surrounding the fort in preventing provision to be delivered to the weary soldiers. Inside following abraham's inauguration the confederate troops flat out threatens to starve out the remaining soldiers within fort sumter at the very brink and beginning of his presidency. Abraham had his very first tough decision to make. But don't forget above all else. Regardless of the means abraham wanted to preserve the union in the country. He loved so dear wang his options on how to approach and obviously escalating situation at fort sumter abraham chose in initial strategy of nonviolence instead of attacking the troops holding the fourteen siege abraham decided to alert the governor of south carolina that he would be providing supplies in relief to those within the fort any resistance. That was meant to prevent these resources from reaching their destination would be met with force so he even had the courtesy to kind of like give a warning to the governor south carolina. And just say hey like no beef dude as long as you let me feed my folks were all good but of course. Never all good so during that time. When he had alerted the governor south carolina that he would be approaching with supplies for his troops he also had privately met with his own general and essentially was preparing in warning of a possible skirmish at the fort giving explicit instructions to hold or retake the ford if necessary so he was prepared to fight from the very beginning although he was approaching with a mostly passive initial approach unfortunately at news of his incoming provision. For those inside the fort the confederates soldiers requested the fort be surrendered completely and immediately. This request was of course denied with this news. The confederacy fired on the fort beginning one of the bloodiest wars in. Us history the civil war abraham immediately put out a call to arms to other states in order. The gathered troops for the union army at this call to arms states rallied together in terms of common interests with the north in south clearly in opposition during this time for other states also succeeded for the confederacy. Thus began abraham's newest position from political participant to war strategists. What an incredible transition from the defensive to the offensive without a beat in for someone as conflict adverse as abraham. I couldn't imagine what was going through his head during this time. He didn't even have time to really enjoy his victory and enjoy the fact that he had reached behar's political position in the country all on his own during the war abraham relied heavily on the advice of his generals as to determining the best course of action attack for his troops while he considered several peaceful strategies. Abraham believed the war would be one with a more aggressive in head on approach at his command. Abraham directed his forces to attack multiple points of interest for the south aiming to overwhelm their forces with simultaneous attacks. In share numbers. This was a great strategy that required a great deal of coordination implanting amongst the troops. That just was not available at the time. These are not specially trained military troops. That were fighting. They were simple countrymen. Who took up arms to fight their brothers. In some circumstances abraham had appointed several generals to command his army filing through while trying to find the right partner for the position each one had their own issues which made it difficult to work with or too much of an imposing. Work ethic to abraham's with so much transition within leadership the union army suffered from instability for the first two years of the war finally after much trial and error with other generals abraham found the great ulysses s grant a general with an admirable history of successful campaigns who fit all the characteristics. He was searching for in a commander of the union army. After several negative experiences abraham was ecstatic that he'd found and brought together a successful trustworthy war cabinet soon after abraham had created a stable in skilled group of commanders to manage the important aspects of the war from the troops to strategy to resources.

"Abraham that led to this moment it seemed to be a complete failure on the surface for abraham but instead of it being the end of his career it catapulted him into the spotlight and gave him the opportunity of a lifetime to hold the highest political office of the united states as the president. I'd say it wasn't a defeat at all but a huge triumph in disguise. After pulling together his network of supporters abraham was able to do the impossible and was nominated as a presidential candidate on may eighteenth eighteen sixty at the republican national convention in chicago. At this point abraham had decided to focus all of his efforts on his presidential campaign putting his law practice to the rest and also creating a bit more stability in his party. We know was tough for him to put that law down Ramified you know. He was really dedicated. The democrats are reeling at the time divided while the republicans were trying to prevent a repeat of the dissemination of the whig party. The republicans were enlarge part composed of older members of the weight. Party abraham's goal which he'd said often was to bring the nation together and promote collaboration after his nomination abraham focused on connecting with the members inside his party bringing them together and leaning more moderately in his views. To avoid the divisiveness he'd witnessed. That brought the ends of the whig party in this election. Abraham ran against a total of four other candidates and won a clear majority of the electoral college. This of course meant that a farmer with about a year a former education that was born with close to nothing and without any clear advantages was elected as the president of the united states. Abraham was born without heuristic chrissy without access to the opportunities resources and networking that is usually available to those trying to achieve a position in a political office let alone one of the highest political offices in the united states so what had brought abraham to this point from a farmer to the president of the united states. Whatever it is it safe to say that it began within abraham himself. He had no clear leverage. No obvious path to the presidency. Just the desire to excel and bring the nation together. You have to give it to him although he was a flawed human being as we all are. It's quite satisfying a watches evolution. It would come in literally the nick of time because the country would need abraham strong leadership in belief in the union in the coming days more than ever. Unfortunately abraham was about to begin his journey into ruling a country that was completely divided. It's crazy to think that he'd call this. As abraham was quoted as saying the nation was becoming a house divided. This was a mainly because the expansion of slavery was becoming such a polarizing and partisan topic among the states with the southern states. Showing clear unending support immediately. Following abraham successful election. The first southern state south carolina would announce its decision to secede from the union abraham tried to prevent the impending conflict by introducing compromises to congress to essentially prevent further states from seceding. I like to highlight that. All this was going down before abraham had been officially inaugurated so he had even like officially started the job. When all this bs start having he essentially didn't even have time to celebrate his win before this impending war was creeping up on his doorstep although the compromises were able to buy a bit of time it wasn't enough to prevent the full succession. A total of seven states would secede from the union. inform the confederacy. This would mark the beginning of one of the bloodiest and longest wars that the united states had ever seen. And this is where. I'm going to stop in this episode. As we've covered a lot with abraham's early political career leading all the way up to his presidency the state of the nation would reach a boiling point and a volatility that even abraham could have predicted but without a doubt he stepped up and led the nation through crisis in a way that is beyond admirable in the next episode. We'll continue onto abraham's presidency and the insanity. That was the civil war. I liked to post some picks on my website of abraham lincoln before and after his presidency. So you can see just how weathered this man was by the end and before recording this. I'd actually visited gettysburg justice past weekend and really got to soak in a lot of the history and walk the battlefields and all that great stuff. I love history. If you guys can't tell so.

"Hey there be one. My name is ari in welcome to made of metal a motivational podcast. Where we tell stories about regular people overcoming insurmountable odds this week. We continue on the very humble beginnings and ozo- fascinating story of abraham lincoln. I really loved learning about abraham's early careers spanning from modest customer service positions to becoming an illustrious backwoods lawyer also still not over him using an almanac to win a murder case. That situation alone deserves his own episode of forensic files. I also enjoyed learning about abraham simple life on the farm and his transition from farm life to being an integral part of the local communities he worked in abraham had worked as a shopkeeper a postmaster and even was voted as captain to lead a local militia during a short conflict. All of this practice is any of his political work in gives you a great glimpse as to where he first gained such definitive perspective on the working class. And how they were faring in the country today so we're going to pick right back up and discussed the onset of abraham's political career from local politics all the way up to the national level. So let's get right into it. As i mentioned in a previous episode abraham was politically affiliated with the whig party which is one of the two biggest political parties at the time. There were the wigs and then there were the democrats. The whig party was an opposition party to president andrew jackson and his supporters who were democrats the whig party advocated and campaigned for government administered ministered infrastructure and economic support in the form of tariffs favoring the american business industries abraham was elected multiple times as the representative of the whig party to the illinois state legislature from around eighteen. Thirty five to eighteen forty nine. He was the lone wig party representative on the legislature. He was also elected to congress for just one term from eighteen forty seven to eighteen forty nine. This would be his first introduction to national politics during his time at the state. Legislature abraham would focus his efforts on introducing bills and voting on resolutions to his party interests. Abraham did not agree with the current president andrew jackson's policies including his strong and obvious support for slavery. The president himself was the owner of many slaves. I did want to know. But during abraham's time in congress he introduced a bill that proposed the emancipation of enslaved people including compensation although the bill didn't receive much support. It's interesting to me. That abraham didn't fully support the institution of slavery long before the start of the civil war. It was abraham's vocal opposition against the looming mexican american war that prevented him from reelection to congress. It was after his single term in congress. That abraham who was close to forty at the time decided that politics wasn't for him and he returned to illinois to again restart his career as a lawyer. I don't know about you guys but it seems to me that Abraham lincoln should have been a lawyer and That's what he wanted to do. That is clearly his passion. So abraham would continue to practice law in not participate in any politics for about five years though he would return for the absolute best of reasons around eighteen fifty. Four one of abraham's rivals was proposing a bill that completely went against national sentiments in the surrounding states including abraham's home state of illinois at the time in regards to states' rights territories and the lawful expansion of slavery. The bill called the kansas nebraska. Act would allow slavery to be decided by the states in terms of whether or not they would allow it within their territory. During this time the whig party had been completely wiped out and the republican party was beginning to rise abraham seeing the change in the political landscape and noting his opponents strong support would align himself with the republican party and campaign against his opponent for the senate seat. There were stark differences. Between abraham and his opponent both physically and mentally abraham was described as tall lanky and strong in his opponent was short stocky and portly each had their own style of debating but abraham's was more so individualistic to his genuine personality insincere delivery while his opponent engaged in the normal and long winded political performances that everyone had grown accustomed to but could not relate to abraham speeches were also described as more eloquent articulate and most importantly not as limpkey as was most common during this time period. He also focused debate on highlighting the inconsistencies between his opponents past political principles and his propose vision moving forward. Say that three times fast. These distinctions set abraham apart giving him a leading edge over his opponent. As the bill's main purpose was to include slavery as an option for each state. This is where abraham focuses arguments. He believed that the government should intervene in established an anti-slavery economy. It should be highlighted. That abraham wasn't necessarily against the morality of slavery at this point more so the economic repercussions to the country in terms of a country divided in commerce slavery was one of the main drivers of agricultural industry in the south and was starting to become a monumental divisive national issue. I felt like it was important to note that as it will be interesting to see. As abraham story continues how his views evolved and how much they impacted his eventual rise to the presidency as abraham would denounce slavery completely just two years later in eighteen. Sixty this was also during the time. Following the supreme court dread scott decision in eighteen fifty seven now this decision was groundbreaking as it essentially made it federal law that african american were not citizens and were entitled to zero rights and essentially completely supported the institution of slavery. Although abraham was seen as a superior choice in the senate race he sadly was not the popular choice and he would lose the senate seat to his more politically established and networked opponent. This loss would hit abraham hard and affected him deeply but there was a silver lining. Although abraham didn't win the seat his campaign did help to boost his visibility once again in the political sphere but this time all the way up to the presidential level rising in his statement ship and establishing himself as a worthy political opponent with his amazing oratory skills and personality abraham was able to gain support for a lucrative presidential campaign. There were so many setbacks and losses for.

"With a total of maybe a year of education after passing the bar abraham would move to the capital of illinois springfield and would begin work for several different law firms. Eventually abraham settle into a position as a partner in a law firm with william herndon. The pair were described as a dynamic duo with totally opposite personalities in practice styles. William was also ten years younger than abraham described as a bit more radical in much less practical in his dealings still. This proved to be a lucrative partnership. In abraham was making a pretty painting. He travel many miles to other county circuit courts in order to take additional cases and earn extra cash in terms of his track. Record abraham was a pretty damn good lawyer as well. He'd one landmark cases for the illinois central railroad as well as a murder case that involves someone abraham new personally. Interestingly enough the murder cakes allowed abraham to use some of the knowledge he'd acquired while working as a farmer with his family the witness claim to have seen the accused commit the crime by moonlight by full moonlight to be specific in response abraham pulled out in almanac and rush rinse the moon phase for that night in question which noted that there was no full moon or any moon for that matter thus the witness was not telling the truth and it would have been too difficult for him to identify the accused as he claimed. This was enough to sow doubt in the jury in his client was acquitted of all charges abraham bill in awesome reputation as a hard working lawyer representing businesses and banks alike as well as a few criminal cases while working as a lawyer for a variety of defendants. We begin to note abraham's ability to communicate directly in genuinely with the public and how this served him well when making his case to the judge and jury around eighteen. Forty abraham would meet the woman he would marry mary. Todd mary todd was a well to do woman from kentucky who was described as outspoken and raise within the bourgeois and aristo christie of kentucky abraham and. Mary had drastically different upbringings which caused much confusion when the couple announced their engagement which i thought was very funny like hilarious. Like who abraham and mary while never saw that. Coming abraham despise the classism that was rampant within the communities of the elite due to these stark personality differences. They would eventually call it their engagement. Initially just a year later the couple would reconnect and get married. Abraham and. mary had four children together but unfortunately only one of his children survived to adulthood. They were described as involved parents. Although abraham was often on the road traveling to various cases and political engagements as you can expect abraham's thinking and perspectives were much different than most individuals heat encountered growing up in mostly poverty without any guidance towards culture or education or even exposure to different ways of thinking outside of self study but the thing was abraham. Didn't this absorb his life experiences. He also incorporated the themes and ideas. He'd learned abraham would often quote shakespeare and other poets dabbled in the belief of dream interpretation. And even how period where he read a bit of comedy it was also reported that abraham always loved and appreciated the theater we can also see the influence of growing up as the every man having to work through the problems presented by lack of government support throughout the country and how much the people were suffering because of it there was one trait that never changed throughout his career which one would think would make being lawyer. Quite difficult and matt is abraham's commitment to honesty and transparency. Abraham would create quite a notoriety for himself as one of the most respected and sought after lawyers in the state of illinois and that was because he was discerning genuine and believed in the foundations of the legal system to be in favor of the common man of course his most famous nickname wouldn't be dubbed until much later but we see those traits and abraham very early in his life. What i did want to highlight is that much of abraham's lifeless spent working with the public from working on a railyard to a shopkeeper to the postmaster which takes you and put you squarely in the homes and eventually hearts of your neighbors. Anyone who has worked with the public understands how that experience can humble you in a way that no other can. We see later on abraham's career. How that really influence his work in law politics and other areas of his life that would change the course of history for the country as a whole so. This is where. I'm going to stop in part one with his early life in career in law in the next episode. We'll talk about his growing role in in state politics and his eventual rise on the national stage abraham lincoln was a multifaceted individual who is known for not only his steadfast beliefs but his ability to connect with people in a way that change their perspective.

"And growing that into something monumental in meaningful the individual will be talking about today has a story that really epitomized that ideal. Although this individual grew up with less than they would become one of the most honored and admired man in the history of the united states. This person had to struggle for most of their early life focused only on surviving in the coming days which were bleak at best. I personally love learning about this individual as i think. There's a lot of little tidbits that really humanizes figure. Instead of viewing them as this inaccessible idle so today will be discussing the humble the humanitarian the honest abraham lincoln abraham lincoln was born on february twelve eighteen o nine in hodgin ville kentucky abraham was born to parents. Thomas and nancy who had two other children unfortunately one of abraham siblings would die in infancy abraham's father. Thomas is described as a strong home setter. Who instilled in abraham early the importance of hard work and manual labor abraham's mother. Nancy was a stay at home mom who took care of the house in children and was described as quite religious. We'll discuss a bit more as to how religion played a role in abraham's viewpoints. A little later on abraham's family lived on a farm in kentucky when he was born but his family would have to move to indiana. On abraham was only seven years old due to a legal dispute with their land in indiana abraham and his family had even less than they started with in kentucky which was not saying much upon arrival. In their new home abraham's father set up a rudimentary camp that was on public land essentially as they were extremely poor. The family lived on the land illegally. Keeping a low profile. As they weren't really allowed to be there they live the life of true pioneers eating only what they could hunt and farming and working the land a hard existence which required a lot of young abraham. Although farm life was all that abraham new later on in life he'd say he disliked the difficult living in particular that hard time spent hunting animals for food eventually. Abraham's parents were able to buy the land. They're living on sadly abraham's mother. Nancy would become sick and passed away in eighteen eighteen at the young age of thirty four. When abraham was just nine years old this event left abraham inconsolable as any young child will be after the sudden death of his mother just over a year later. Abraham's father would remarry a widow who also had three children of her own. Sarah abraham's stepmother which described as warm kind and caring to all of the children equally in particular abraham formed a close relationship to his stepmother later giving her the moniker of angel mother. so sweet. What isn't very well known about. Abraham is that both of his parents were illiterate with very little to no education. This was the norm for rural america. At the time as children simply didn't have the time to devote to former education as they were spending their days working on the family farms or they just completely lacked access to it. Abraham was described as an ever curious boy who endured learning and would even walk miles to borrow a book although his parents weren't educated abraham stepmother was supportive and encouraged scholarly pursuits. Its reported that. Abraham would have an estimated total of one year a formal schooling in his lifetime which he attended intermittently in starts and stops around eighteen. Thirty abraham and his family would make a second move from indiana to illinois in which abraham himself helped with hurting the cattle to the new location. Abraham was a young adult in his early twenties around this time and use his family's move as an opportunity to strike it out on his own. He was described as tall strapping strong making him. A perfect candidate for a variety of labor physicians abraham's early career included working as a boatman and most famously a rail splitter two jobs that required a good amount of personal strength and vigor to complete. He'd also worked a few jobs in a small town as a shopkeeper as well as the postmaster. What's the most interesting is. That abraham sue beginnings brought him in close proximity with other everyday working men and women who made up the majority of american citizens during this time period witnessing match struggle and also experiencing yourself leaves an indelible impression on a person's perspectives and values. We see those early life. Experiences influence abraham's career for his entire lifetime around eighteen thirty two the black hawk war began and abraham was selected to lead as captain of a group of local volunteers little bit of that militia action though his company was not involved in any actual battles. This was an important time. For abraham as he was able to use his position to begin networking within the political and legislative sphere. Abraham actually joked that he'd had more battles with mosquitoes than with the actual opposition. during this time period. The man had a sense of humor. You can give him that quite witty to when she read a bit more of his quotes after his military service abraham had garnered a bit of a following within his town working with so many volunteers. Showcase abraham's excellent leadership skills and ability to connect with his peers this momentum abraham was elected as a representative to the state legislature in eighteen. Thirty four it was around this time. That abraham began to pursue an interest in a career in law and politics and this is also a great little tidbit that i really enjoyed learning. When abraham decided to become a lawyer remember. He had very little formal schooling at this point. Although it was reported that he'd always had a knack for mathematics. Instead of this being a hindrance it seemed to spur him to dive right into projects that most people would have turned down even with a cushion of a formal education. So abraham did what he loved a new best he read abraham would spend his days reading commentaries on the laws of england completely teaching himself in passing the bar exam to become a practicing lawyer in illinois totally by self again.

"Just going to say Well, okay, You're gonna have to have a kind of strength in numbers and then it built after a critical mass of things like this happen and are publicized. The kinds of people who do this sort of thing will learn that they have to be more communitarian and spirit and companies will start realizing that they can move along without the cynicism of imposing this kind of nonsense on their employees because of you and you and I both know most often. The corporations and bodies that are imposing that sort of thing on their employees. They don't really care about this stuff. They just learned that if they don't they're going to get called racist. But if it turns out that after a while, even if somebody does call them racist, they keep on doing what they're doing. We move on. Are you concerned about a backlash at some point, particularly white backlash mean Black black people are still only 12 or 13% of population shop. How long are they gonna indulge atomic Easy codes or the call Hannah Jones. Rewriting history, Um, calling Robert figures like you know, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln calling for, you know, School's not to be named after them other statues to be taken down and likening them both Stonewall Jackson. I mean, how long are frankly are white people gonna put up with this before? You get some backlash, and you know, I There's a certain element on the right that will put up with it. And definitely, but I don't know if they represent most white America you it all little concerned about where this is all headed. I mean, what? We were a very polarized country right now. Um, yeah, open. No. Two things could happen. It could be that person. You're talking about this person on the right, almost certainly male and probably under 35. Who does something really hideous because they're tired of seeing Abraham Lincoln's name taken off the things that could happen. I wish to the more temperate and civil kind of white person with backlash against the sort of thing by saying, No, We're going to continue to have this school named after Abraham Lincoln. That you can call it whatever you want on Twitter and seeing what happens, but equally problematic. Jason is there's going to be somebody like this from the left, and I assume you didn't hear it from here first, probably male, probably under 35. Probably White is going to hurt somebody in some way, and hopefully just one. If it has to happen, it might be many out of an idea that he is on the side of the Angels. Battling white supremacy as a white person. His name is probably going to be something like Jared, you know, that's gonna I worry about that if we don't temper this stuff Okay, Well, we'll leave it there, John. Thank you very much for for this discussion. I appreciate your time. It was very enlightening. Take care of this event took place in December 16th hosted by the Manhattan Institute. Moderator Jason Riley of the Manhattan Institute. Comments by John McWhorter, Columbia University So now we're going to move on to a panel discussion. And as I mentioned earlier, we have gathered up. Ah, very distinguished panel here to discuss some of what I was just talking about with Professor McCord and and and then some, Andre So let me introduce these Panelists and I want to start by introducing Professor Randall Kennedy. Who teaches at Harvard Law School. He attended Princeton University and received his legal education at Yale. Hey, also clerked for Supreme Court justice. Thurgood Marshall. He's written several books. One of My favorites is race crime in the law, and he's written a collection of essays called, Say it Out Loud, which is due to be published. In September of next year. A second Panelists is Professor Richard Banks, who was the Jackson Eli Reynolds, professor of law at Stanford. University law School, hey, is also co founder and faculty director of the Stanford Center for Racial Justice. Hey teaches and writes about family law, employment discrimination law. And race in the law, and he is the author of his marriage for white people. How the African American marriage decline affects everyone and finally joining us is Chris Roof. Oh, Who's a filmmaker, a writer and a policy researcher. He's a contributing editor for the Manhattan Institute City Journal and director of the Discovery Institute Center on Wealth and Poverty. His directive documentary films for PBS, Netflix and for international television. So I want to welcome the Panelist to the discussion, Everyone Everyone here. Okay. Why don't why don't I start with you, Professor Kennedy. And when I was Putting this event together. You were one of the first people I thought of, and it's because of how long you've been following some of these debates back. In the late eighties. 19 Year nine. I believe you wrote a Harvard Law Review article that got quite a bit of attention about critical race theory. Critical legal studies on I just wanted to start by asking you, um you know what motivated you to write that? What were you trying to get at? In that article. And how do you think the arguments hold up all these all these years later? Thank you very much for including me in this discussion. The reason that I wrote that article many years ago is because I wanted to put out on the floor, certain ideas. I think that some of the people that you've been criticizing we're making certain arguments with which I disagreed. Which you in particular, I thought that some of the people who now call themselves critical race theory, people, I thought that they were making exaggerated claims of racial exclusion. That was one of my arguments. Their their argument was that the people in legal academia, minority people in legal academia work getting there just do in terms of acknowledgement of their scholarly contributions, and I didn't think they made that argument well and I set forth my reasons. And then there was a second argument that was being made, which was that minority people had a sort of a special insight. Into certain areas of culture, Certain areas of law and I pushed back against that. Because I think that in the area of, you know, culture and the the the intellectual realm we shouldn't be putting up racial fences. So yes, I've been critical. Um, of certain expressions of critical race theory for Ah, good long while and in the in the decades since that article you refer to I've criticized various people that have been mentioned, professor can deep. Mr Coates, My colleague go long time colleague Derek Bell, criticize them all. Harvard University law Professor Randall Kennedy. Let me go on to say, however. And here. I guess I'm in considerable disagreement. With yourself..

"Of a I don't think he would have minded Because He was in a different the entire country was in a different mindset. Then malice toward none. Charity for all everybody wanted blood. But Abraham Lincoln when he called for unity. He meant it. He meant it. When when the South surrendered. The the surrender happened and the white flag actually was a white and red checked dish cloth. On. We actually had our Mercury Museum. Have a piece of that surrender flag again. Just just a dish cloth that you probably have one like it at your house. Um and they said we have them. They've sent a telegram. We have them. We We have their surrender. What do you want us to do? And Lincoln and I'm paraphrasing said Take your foot off their neck. Help them up. Remind them that we're friends. Send them home. We're we're all Americans when we believe In forgiveness. When we believe in redemption, and when we believe in the same things John Wilkes Booth did not believe in the same thing. He believed in slavery. He believed Um In violence. It killed Lincoln. I mean, literally, but figuratively. The man was dying. This was such a horrible experience for him. He didn't know what to do. Everybody asks today. How much more of this we're gonna take. Lincoln was asking the exact opposite. Please don't do this. Please. We don't want a separation. We don't want a war. Please don't do this. The righteous I believe no. What Violence begets And they plead. Don't Don't do this. Don't do this. Don't do this. Please don't do this. The South did it. The South was also rooted in And evil in many ways, with the slavery thing being the issue. That very at the very first It was about succession. Estate didn't have a right to secede. The North thought Lincoln thought he was just trying to bring the union back together. So we could solve things and work together. But it was about slavery. By the end of it. It was absolutely about slavery and itwas about slavery at the very beginning, in many ways. Tonight. I tell the story about them. Over the capital. No, a story that I've never told before. That is fascinating, hanging, just like I did. Turn off my mike. No, I haven't told it to you. Hesitate. I've hesitated to tell this story because in the days where we remove everything, so few people even know this story that I hate to tell it, but it It's It is something that we should all see. You know, the top of the Capitol has the has Columbia or the woman on top, and she's wearing a headdress. And Native American headdress. That's not the way that was designed. It was not designed to be wearing a headdress. She was supposed to be wearing a liberty cap. Liberty cap. Most people don't even know what they are any more. But it's a French symbol that when you were a slave or an indentured servant, and you gained your freedom You were a liberty cap, proudly announcing. I'm a free man. So it became a symbol mainly in France. But here in America, it became a real symbol. So as we're building the capital, and we put the lady and we design it, it's designed with liberty cap. Well, the guy who was put in charge of this to to have it forged. Was a guy from the South. And hey, didn't believe in liberty for all. And he had it not only forged without the Liberty cap. But he also had it forged in a forge that was staffed by slaves. Intentionally. Guy who was in charge of that. Was Jefferson Davis. The guy who became the quote president. Of the Confederacy. It's one of the last things he did. While he was in Washington. And, uh, It's a reminder of Who these people really were. Who he really Woz. Who take the nation's capital. And to adorn it. Uh, With something that you intentionally had forged by slaves just to prove your point. Is really, uh Twisted, twisted. We have to be both sides in the civil.

"Is the most powerful network ever created. But there's not a main office for the Internet. There's not a president for the Internet, either. The Internet is just there. And it is completely the centralized. The Internet. Decentralized is information technology. It had his big point, decentralized money. Like bank transactions. Bitcoin transactions are recorded in the ledger. The Bitcoin Ledger is not maintained by a private company like the bank's ledge. Instead, it is maintained by the public. Houses of people all around the world have a copy of the Bitcoin ledger on their computers and then, like a centralized ledger system, anyone condemn, download and verify transactions on The Bitcoin Ledger using their computer. Now you may be wondering if Bitcoin uses the public ledger, wouldn't it cause really big security engine issues. What that made Bitcoin really easy to hack. The answer is no and no again. The fact that the Bitcoin ledgers public doesn't make it easy to hack at all. It actually makes it harder to hack. As an example. Let's imagine that I was trying to hack all the photos of Abraham Lincoln. He was a great president. Let's say I wanted to substitute on the photos of Abraham Lincoln. I know that sounds crazy, but bear with me for a second. Let's say I want to change what people thought Abraham looked like. Maybe I wanted to replace the image. Of Abraham Lincoln with an image of myself and people would think I was Abraham Lincoln. When I walked in the street not can hack into a lot of websites online, an online directories Maybe I could hack into Wikipedia. In other websites about Abraham Lincoln. I could change all the photos on those websites to a photo of myself. But that wouldn't cause a really big issue Now what? It there just too many websites around the world that would still have photos of the real Abraham Lincoln on him, And in other words, I couldn't hack into enough websites. Quick enough. The fool anyone into thinking I was Abraham Lincoln. Now the Bitcoin Public ledger works almost the same way it's explained in my great Abraham Lincoln example. The Bitcoin Public Ledger is just too big and on too many websites. Are too many computers for anyone that hack into it and change the information. The Bitcoin Public ledger that was created by Satoshi Nakamoto. It's actually called the Bitcoin Blockchain and People who don't even have faith and Bitcoin. They're always say Blockchain is a great new technological advancement. So now you know that Bitcoin is visual. And you also know that Bitcoin is Thies centralized. And you know that Bitcoin uses the Blockchain to confirm transaction. So let's answer the question that we started with what is Bitcoin? The coin is decentralized digital currency. Since Bitcoin does not have a home country are a country of origin. It has some of the same benefits that Fiat currencies that they don't offer US benefits they don't offer. It's an economy somewhere in the world falls or government changes. Bitcoin won't be affected like a PR currency would be since Bitcoin Is a world wide currency. So Bitcoin is not controlled by any bank. Any government. Any person nobody controls Bitcoin. It's like the Wild West is just out there. Nothing can be done about it. It's on so many computers now that needed to say it was so be almost impossible to shut it down. Maybe if the whole world at one time all the governments Tried to shut it down. They came close, but I think it's just on too many computers..
