Florida Was an Unbelievable Success Story During the Pandemic. Why?
"So Florida was an unbelievable success story. During the pandemic. By remaining open and defying federal government, pressure, Ron DeSantis, the courageous Ron DeSantis was able to keep Florida free, businesses from closing down. He was able to taper and hedge against mental health issues, depression, suicide, social isolation, alcoholism, Florida became kind of a Beacon of liberty and hope, and you see it with the real estate values around here. You see it with the new businesses that are moving here. It's almost synonymous with self government. Ron DeSantis deserves credit and Ron DeSantis has received some incredibly well earned praise for doing this. But the question is, why was he able to do it? The reason is in the structure of our government. We talk a lot about the United States Constitution here on this program. And James Madison, in the federalist papers, argued that the structure of the constitution was one of its defining elements. James Madison Alexander Hamilton and John Jay, the three authors of the federalist papers and one of the three most involved in designing our constitution, James Madison being the most involved. Why is America able to be free not because of our Bill of rights every banana republic has a Bill of rights? No, the structure of checks and balances and consent of the governed. Allows a bottom up structure, a grassroots centric way of governing.
Steve Forbes Breaks Down the Value and the Benefits of Gold
"I have never understood which may be a reflection on me. I acknowledge that, but I have never understood the argument for getting off the gold standard. I would love to know from you who I think it's clear to say you thought it was a bad decision, why was the decision made and how does one defend it? Well, first, they gold standard is the way in which you keep the value of a currency like the dollar stable. Gold for a variety of reasons keeps its intrinsic value better than anything else on this earth. Not perfect, but better than anything else. And so it's like a yardstick or a scale or a clock, which measures time. Money measures value. And when you attach it to gold, you ensure that it says a stable value. And people today, especially economists, don't know or overlook that we were on an old standard for a 180 years from the 1790s when Alexander Hamilton put us on it to the early 1970s
Finally, After the Election, NYT Admits Hunter Biden's Laptop Is Real
"Let's talk about another aspect. Of Russia and the Ukraine. Remember that company barista even a Joe Rogan is in on the deal. This is Joe's final recognition that what we knew a year and a half ago, even The New York Times is confirming it. I mean, New York Times just now is admitting that the Hunter Biden laptop is real. And, you know, we remember from the debates with Trump bringing it up to Biden, and Biden saying it's a lie. A flat out lie. Everybody knew it was a lie. The New York Post had that story that was banned from Twitter, which was just outright crazy, that one of the oldest newspapers in the country. Yeah, and I don't think anybody's going to go back and apologize to them. No, no one's apologizing. Oldest newspaper actually in the land founded by Alexander Hamilton. Now The New York Times admits that that story is correct.
The United States of Europe?
"In the Europe is still very fragmented. And if they want to really be able to exercise their power against the likes of Russia, they're going to have to recognize that they need to be the United States of Europe, much like we are the United States of America. In other words, they need Alexander Hamilton in the room saying, okay, let's work together to make sure we're politically and fiscally monetarily united, right? You can't have all these separate governments and I mean, the separate languages find separate cultures I get it. But if you're going to try to be a force militarily, you got to actually be Europe. Like together as Europe, fighting something together as Europe rather than looking back to the United States all the time for help, which is ultimately perhaps what's going to happen here. And that's not going to go over well. I'm telling you, the American people do not have the appetite for anything like this. The American people do not have the appetite for
You're About to Live Through the Greatest Citizen Movement of a Generation
"The founders believed, and this was explicitly written in Alexander Hamilton, John Jay's, James Madison's private journals, that only God should be able to have the executive legislative and judicial authority. This is why they intentionally separated everybody. They separated it because they believed that no person on this planet should have that much authority. But they realized that the true immediate authority needs to be invested in all of you. This is one of the great dangers of these independent regulatory agencies of people that are largely untouchable that run these bureaucracies in D.C. of which you've never met them, they're unelected, unknown and have almost unaccountable power. But the trajectory of 2020, that were on, if we keep it up, if you keep on praying, fasting, showing up to events, showing up to school board meetings, running for office, if you feel so compelled, consuming news and information, knowing it's happening around you, even though it might be slightly depressing at times, is that you're about to live through the greatest, most unexpected citizen movement in a generation. Let me say that again. You're about to live through one of the greatest cities that all of a sudden they're going to look back and they're going to say when it seemed the bleak and it seems so negative and so dark and it was led by the church. I really believe that's where it all comes down to.
How Breitbart's Emma Jo Morris Came to Know Hunter Biden's 'Laptop From Hell'
"Welcome back to one on one with me Sebastian gorka and breitbart's Emma Joe Morris. Emma, I'm curious, I'm not a journalist, if anybody calls me that, I correct them very, very rapidly. But I'm very curious that I want to want you to walk us through the inside story, give us a little bit of inside baseball because I love the New York Post. It is, I believe the oldest extant newspaper we still have founded by Alexander Hamilton. So as you're breaking this story of the laptop from hell, what is it like at the post? What is your management think about the impact your coverage is going to have and then walk us through is just before the election, Jack Dorsey, Twitter and Facebook just memory hole this orwellian New York Post story just has to disappear. Yeah, I mean, so we became aware of this laptop in September of 2020. So just before the election, about two months before the election. Was it through Rudy or Bernie or yeah? So I can tell you that. So Steve Bannon has a producer named vish who I knew from New York. He's from New York. He was not previously in politics. This was his first job with somebody political. And I knew him from my days back in Hannah. I used to hang out with him a little bit. He was friends with some mutual friends, and we had kept in touch, and I went to the New York Post in any way. They obtained the laptop or Rudy does actually. And then Bannon becomes aware of it. And these are copies, right? So the story. Certain people to download the hard drive. Exactly. Exactly. He gave, well, he gave Rudy's lawyer the first coffee that was out and they were looking at it. Oh, multiple laptops. One. A one, because they were two in the stool, weren't there? No, well, I think there's 300 laptops in circulation. Wow. The post had one. Okay. And that was the one that went through Rudy. And Rudy called Bannon because there was so much China on there and Rudy knew that Bannon was the guy for that. And decide, they need to get this out into the press. So Bannon's producer, I knew from years ago, and he was telling Dan and I know somebody an editor at the post, you got to get in touch with. And she is going to know what she's looking at and you better call her. So I got a call from Steve Bannon who was actually on Yankee poor. I'm Jewish. So I remember that way. Very intense holiday, actually. And he calls me and he says, I have to Steve actually called you. Yes. Okay. Bitch texted me and said Steve Bannon. It's a big deal. When Steve Bannon doesn't get somebody else to call you, that's a big deal. Leave a story. Oh, you don't miss it. Of course. And sex is a big deal from Steve. Trust me. Especially at 3 a.m., which is when he used to text. He carry on. So this randomized text me seems about to call you, don't miss it. I get the bone. He says, I have a story that's about to change your
Larry O'Connor: Stop Worrying About Who Sits in the White House
"And what we saw in Virginia with the election of glencoe in the first Republican elected statewide since 2009 was exactly the power and organization and political message that we need to spread far and wide between now and election day next year Stop worrying about who's sitting in the Oval Office Does it matter of course it matters But right now what matters more How do you win this country by changing the president and then everything gets fixed Come on You're smarter than that you know better You know your founders the founders didn't want that You'd think James Madison and Alexander Hamilton and George Washington and Thomas Jefferson wanted us to wring our hands and worry about who would sit in The White House every four years Our entire country was built on the premise of divesting power from the federal government in the nation's capital The most important decisions that happen in our lives should be made at the local level and there's nothing more local than school boards Fix your house fix your neighborhood fix your community fix your town fix your county fix your school district That's how you change a country I've got more to say about that coming up in a little bit But that's what we need to focus on right now
Newt Gingrich Offers Advice to Next Republican Administration Against China, Big Tech
"So the next administration, the GOP writ large when it comes to the external threat of China and the internal threat of big tech, what would you say to president Trump? Well, I'd say, first of all, the text is easier of the two. Simply make them comment carriers and make it a ability to sue for triple damages. And you'll overnight see them change their behavior. But that's going to be a big fight, but there's no there's no excuse when you have a system like Twitter, which knocks off a person who got 73 million votes. Knocks off the oldest and fourth largest newspaper in America, the New York Post founded by Alexander Hamilton. But allows the Taliban spokesperson to stay on. You know the system is just plain sick. So I think we need to have I don't want government involved, but I think we need to create an opportunity for individuals and companies to protect themselves in court. And if you could sue for triple damages, I mean, the New York Post alone would have gotten a huge amount of money out of the way they were treated in
Is the Biden Regime Illegitimate?
"We are one on one with Stanford University's professor Victor Davis Hansen. Given that you have said all the synonyms, the deep state, the permanent bureaucracy, justified, not hyperbole, we have the empirical evidence. If we add to that, what we witnessed last year, 80 million unbidden mail out ballots sent out. Democrat governors across the nation saying we don't need to verify signatures. We can stretch the dates suitcases of ballots being pulled from under tables on CCTV. And Hunter Biden, the Hunter Biden story being literally censored at the source by Silicon Valley, the oldest newspaper in America, Alexander Hamilton's New York Post, not being allowed to re post the story of the contents of the hunt of mine laptop. Is it again? I'm using you as my sounding board. Is that hyperbole? It is an exaggeration to say that this quote unquote regime, this White House is illegitimate professor. Or I'm not going to adjudicate because that's what Hillary Clinton did and discouraged. Remember, she said that he was that he was not fairly elected. Stacey Abrams did that. All I will say is that when you transition in a single election cycle to the highest you've ever had mail in ballots in 2016 of 40% roughly. And you go to 63%, a 102 mail in or early ballots. And the error rate goes from a typical per state average of three to 4% rejection rate. And it goes down to .2 to .4, depending on the state. And then you're told that when you more than double the amount of work, the tabulate those ballots. And you need double the amount of workers. Yet you're going to find less air than you usually would when you have half the bowel, I just don't believe that's

September 17, 1787: The History Behind This Significant Day
"Today is a day that every single child in school should take pause and be leads through and told the great american story of how we got here. Today is a beautiful day. There's a lot wrong with our country right now and i wanna take a pause to remember what happened on this day in seventeen. Eighty seven september seventeenth. Seventeen eighty seven was one of the most significant days in human history. It was definitely one of the most significant days in political history. Almost never before had this idea of self government been tried. The romans tried it in some capacity and failed and eventually became an empire. The greek strident and city states. But never before. Did a people attempt to embark on a form of government. We're the people were the sovereign. The idea of self government independent judiciary the ideas of freedom and equality in the rule of law that are the ultimate principles to build that society. In today's time it's easy to feel disconnected to the brilliant so the clairvoyance or the wisdom of our founding fathers or the framers september seventeenth. Seventeen eighty seven was the last day of a heated constitutional convention that lasted almost the entire summer and went from may twenty fifth to september seventeenth. Hundred eighty seven.

The question is what kind of government do we want to form now. A sloppy way to talk about the american stories say we had two founders one in seventeen seventy six and one in seventeen eighty seven that is not true there is an a divine connection between the truths of the declaration of independence and the laws of the constitution of the united states
The 1619 Project Lies About the Founding Fathers and Slavery
"The book is debunking the sixteen nineteen project and boy does it need debunking. It is preposterous. It's being pushed out there Mary you were You you are a resident fellow at the alexander. Hamilton institute for the study of western civilization. I learned i think only last night watching rick. Burns's nineteen ninety nine nine hundred ninety nine documentary about new york that alexander hamilton one of our founding fathers. He was very active in ending slavery. In his this is over two hundred years ago so again the sixteen nineteen project access though. That never happened exactly and another thing. Is i spend a considerable bowl amount of time on. Thomas jefferson one of the big lies of the sixteen. Nineteen project is that he never intended to abolish slavery. Now thomas jefferson owned hundreds of slaves. He was born into a slave owning family but even for him. That is completely false. He spent his life trying to figure out a way to end slavery peacefully how to how to avoid a civil war he saw that coming and so is completely false to even charge. Thomas jefferson with wanting to continue slavery. That is completely false. It may not be in the way that nicole. Hannah jones in the other riders. What have it which was to start a communist revolution. But he was someone who did want to abolish slavery peacefully.

"The courts conform to the people now. This is something that we as conservatives. Don't talk about enough. We think that the courts are going to make sober and fair and unbiased decisions regardless of the clamoring the chattering class hamilton. Never thought never thought this isn't the case he wrote about this in the federalist papers and you wrote about this in his private journals and alexander. Hamilton is actually a ghost rider for a lot of george washington speeches in a second term of his presidency. Now the idea of judicial review came in thanks to marbury versus madison. Which really kind of enshrine this idea that. The supreme court is a co equal branch of government. The supreme court has the ability to have a check and balance against tyrants and dust spots or unconstitutional measures when the legislature as we've covered extensively in a previous episode of our podcast.

Good morning dr orrin. How are you and welcome back to you to you. Know i'm glad to be back. I have. I have a very simple but complex question. I read the times of israel to actually find out what's going on with the virus because israel's had everybody else they've got a booster strategy ready they know what's up they know what's down. They have credible people who speak with authority and the public. Why does israel have a functioning public health directorate authority respected in the united states has a complete collapse of credibility with everyone. Well one of the reasons you have to do with the founding fathers you can blame alexander hamilton. James madison and john j Because the founding fathers were so frightened of central authority so frightened of the tyranny of the of the english king that they've they made authority very diffuse. So you know. The governor of new york can't tell the mayor of new york to close the schools of new york. But we have one authority here which tells the entire state but to do and everyone's gonna do it so okay We didn't have the founding fathers but they did some wonderful things but on the questions dealing with a national emergency. Health emergency I guess they didn't foresee that possibility. I got my third vaccination just week. You just pissed me off. I just i was just inveighing against the cdc because everybody knows people need boosters and they announced yesterday they will have a booster strategy in september. And they don't even know what they're gonna recommend and israel has already got michael oren. Who's my age getting. His third booster on freaking believable. Then i made my wife. Is one quarter jewish. Can i may khalia you. Can if not we'll make it happen because honest to god. It's one quarter jewish. I can prove it really. I can get there.

By whom in march seventeen seventy seven he was appointed aide de camp with the rank of lieutenant colonel and he took a prominent part in the military operations which ensued commanding. A battalion at the siege of yorktown in seventeen eighty. He married a daughter of general philip schuyler who survived him more than half a century dying in eighteen fifty four at the age of ninety seven near the close of the war.

"Vladimir Putin stolen form It was fixed. Two year investigation by Mueller came up with absolutely zero, but this myth was pushed and pushed and pushed until it was believed by folks in the Democratic Party. You are terribly naive. And is believed to this day now. This election was not decided in the overnight it's been one month in the whole country is convulsed over and anybody who doesn't believe that's going to be a cloud over this election. Doesn't understand American politics. This is 18 24 in spades. When John Quincy Adams cut a deal with Alexander Hamilton in the House to win in the Electoral College in stiff Andrew Jackson, the popular vote winner. There is there is no dispute over who won this election by anyone as many electoral votes as Trump won four years ago, which trunk called a landslide. Hey one almost eight million more votes popular votes than Trump This quest this, uh Election has been called, has been certified repeatedly onto Jon's comments that Hillary Clinton said that Joe Biden should not concede. She said he should not concede on the day of the election and the day after because of the vote counting because of the mail in votes and because we're in the middle of a pandemic. And millions of people voted by mail. So that was taken completely out of context and in terms of President Biden and President elect Biden not being sufficiently a country anxious toward the healing that the country needs every he ran on it. Every statement he's made has been reaching an all of branch out to the people who did not vote for him on the president of all the people, not the people who Voted and you said it repeatedly. It's President Trump, who is the toxic cloud over this country, and the fact that he is not willing to gracefully accept his loss. He is a loser and he cannot stand it. Okay, John. Again. It cannot be for gotten what we witnessed in this. Pat talked about over the last four years. The Democrat response to what happened in 2016. Did they ever accept it? No, they most certainly didn't. And this wasn't a fringe aspect of the Democrats. You could read his latest 2018 in The New Yorker. Ah, very sophisticated, culturally left magazine that was making a straight laced case. It. In fact, Russians manipulated Facebook and stole the election from Hillary Clinton's and so to expect now, when Democrats would never ex, except the numbers from four years ago when they haven't accepted in all four years, kept saying Trump was a legitimate. Then expect Republicans say, Oh, yeah, the numbers are great. We're going to do what you refused you for four years seems unrealistic. I don't dispute Eleanor's point that Biden won. He clearly won. But you can you see why Maybe the other side is reacting the way it does, In consideration of how infantile the Democrats have been toward every election, going back to 2000, and how many days to take Al Gore to concede? What about 37? And, you know, Clarence John, you raise a very good point. I just want to point out that Democrats in 2000. There are a lot of them didn't think Al Gore should have conceded when he did, including May assess Then I think I'll have recorded get well as subsequent investigations showed. If he called for a statewide recount. He would've probably one. But I don't see Democrats running on the street causing riots. I saw some young Republicans Including a young Cavanaugh. I understand out there with signs saying, Think, Sore loser man Taking off on Gore. Lieberman with the fact is, this kind of stuff happens. Election somebody wins, somebody loses. Let's let's end with an exit question. Yes or no, please. Just yes or no? Will President Trump attend President elect Joe Biden's inauguration? Huh? He swearing in? No. No, no, no. John No. Parents.

It's highly unlikely we were gonna have a constitutional crisis due to faithless electors. But I think there's a value in were symbolic. Anything else but those kind of concern on the idea that this is a popular election. In Italy. It's a popular action by state, which is why we can still get a gap between the national popular vote in the national electoral votes. The president populated with despondent state by state basis, But it is that kind of a confirmation that whatever the intentions of the framers were in 17 87 we have moved in a more small D democratic direction. Advocates for allowing faithless electors to so called go Rogue, said it would be a backdoor way for states to add qualifications for presidential candidates. Such as voting on Ly for those who released taxes did that come up in the opinions, justice cake and take the position that they have the power to write the rules for the selection of the electorate. They can also impose conditions. But then she drops the footnotes and says What the state can't do is impose conditions that would violate another constitutional norm. You are adding a new qualifications to be president..

"This is the few Alexander Hamilton Aaron Burr, however, we're now at the end of the revolutionary war in the beginning of the period of rebuilding and there's no feud because they're both trained as young attorneys, they work in Albany together, and they must have met. But now, they're in New York. This is the early the late seventy the mid seventeen eighty s and I have a note written down from John Sedgwick's book general arrest us route rights, these are the two greatest men in the state. They were both attorneys, and John you make wonderful distinctions between them will go back and forth now because they know each other they're living well within easy walking distance Berle likes to live extremely well. He likes to spend money on a great deal. He is very impecunious at the same time. He he loves to buy things. How did this make him? A better of attorney. What was his reputation as an attorney in early New York. Well, there was a very sharp distinction made between them even though as route says that they were the two greatest lawyers in the in the city if not in the whole country, but they went about it in an entirely different ways. Hamilton would talk to death. He was a man of principle himself, and he wanted to allusively eight the principles of the case of the issues behind it because he was always looking through laws that a country creates itself and through precedent that decides how things are to be conducted in the future. And so that he was constantly digging and digging to get to the essence of things no matter how long it took. Or how many words that talk Burke couldn't care about any of that to him? A case was just a case. And he wanted to resolve the case as quickly and as successfully as he possibly could. And as route said that the that he would take birth four hours to say something that. Hamilton will take four hours to do would take. Birth thirty minutes to handle he just cut right to it. And he used a few choice words to do that. But was earning ten thousand dollars a year. This is very early in the in the Republic, this makes him one of the wealthiest attorneys. I can imagine for many decades, and yet he spends it always always in debt. Do we did he keep accounts of what he spent it on? Or did it did some of the Justice appear John? Well, one of the things that the most famous thing that he spent it on was Richmond hill, and that that's you know, it's deeply ironic did that that'd be the purchase that he would make considering that's where he got booted out from the from when it was Washington's headquarters, and again, this is one of the mysteries of bur burden ever says, well, I bought that place because that's the place of the greatest ignominy that I ever faced and therefore I want to undo it and and buy it and show Washington. What I made of you never said that, but you can imagine that that was part of the appeal of. Buying a place like that. And that this was a a house that ultimately became owned by John Jacob Astor, and before it was the property of the vice president when the government was in New York when to so Adams, John Adams was was in residence there before him, but it was a grand place, and that he, you know, not only had to fill it with the finest antiques would be brought in from wherever and but also you had grounds he had beautiful fruit trees in gardens, and it was very elaborate Eddie was extremely expensive. And he would always be putting on dinner parties for twelve or fifteen or twenty for people grandees from across the ocean or Allie. I was flabbergasted to see the entertained tally. Rab telegram was a great friend of Hamilton's. These guys got around and Joseph Brant that the note the famous in mohawk Indian he was at the table one night. And then, you know, we'll get onto this I suppose, but he's daughter Theodose show at just at thirteen with the one to stand in for Burr one night when he couldn't manage one of these dinners because he was in Washington. And so that he thirteen she was sitting at the head of the table with twenty of the most important people in the western hemisphere were gathered around her we need to plunge into the politics of the early Republic. But a a note here of the kind of reading these two men due to contrast John makes a note that Burr is a narrow reader who enjoys philosophical tracts, which is Hamilton enjoy. What's his idol reading, John? Well, there there's some question about what books he actually carried with him. It cleared that he was interested in economic economics tracks he was interested in philosophy. He was interested in the history of the Roman Republic, he read widely with an always with an eye to one particular thing, which was how can we get the American economy going once we have a government now that was very far seeing because this was often he would do this at Valley Forge and the depths of the war when it didn't look like there was necessarily going to be a country. Let alone a country that he was going to have an economy. Let alone in the Konami that he could build into one of the great powers of the world. He did all of those things, and he had he had that my in mind as he was reading the tech. He is called upon Hamilton to help construct a success because the articles of the confederate federation are not seen as possible. And they don't work the states are keeping their own money. There's no sharing the country has an enormous amount of debt. And Hamilton is one of those people that gathers at Annapolis to begin the process that we know is the constitutional convention beginning in seventeen eighty seven Hamilton is a young man, he's an attorney, but he's called upon as a writer, and I take John again. And again, they see Hamilton as having the best words among them better than Jefferson or was this a rivalry between them. Well, Jefferson couldn't speak in public that. That's the thing about Jefferson. Jefferson was tongue-tied Jefferson was obviously a smooth writer. I mean extraordinary is really the power of liberty. I take in the declaration. But as far as an arguer, or as a public speaker of any kind the he was just terrible when he gave his inaugural addresses that they were scarcely be heard was just that was not his thing. I mean, the second time ready to even give it he said to the newspapers rather than speak it himself, but Hamilton on the other hand could speak for hours, if not days on a certain subject and at at the constitution. That he spoke famously for six hours, and I'm told that even though that seems like it was just a long winded, and useless and go all over the place, kind of speech that it was a critical speech because it was it was the summation that Washington had actually selected Hamilton for the task because he believed that Hamilton would close the deal and that and to some degree. He did he wherever in the process. He made one slip that hounded him for the rest of his life. Which was he let it be known that he wasn't entirely opposed to the idea of a monarchy, and the insane that in giving any van to the notion that a monarchy, which of course, the Americans are just thought to be rid of might not be a bad system. The he was he was lambasted really is a monarchist for the rest of his political life. And I think that it was one of the factors that kept him. From ever becoming a president. Yes, they mocked him as a monochrome. Now Alexander Hamilton had rivals in New York state. He doesn't need Burr. He has George Clinton. The governor the forever governor of New York and here the early division that John very carefully locates into partisan conflict between the federalists. And the Republicans so called the Republicans, you think of Jeffersonians the federalist you can think of as atoms and the new Englanders and George Clinton sides with the Jeffersonians the Republicans, though, he's in New York state, and I take it from the way you've laid out the rivalry with Clinton that that would have been more likely the dual except for. They're not the same age in Clinton's not a dualist then Burr Clinton wants to best Hamilton does he wants to destroy him. Is that the way I shouldn't understand this John will he's you know, it's it's hard to know. Now, I mean Clinton was as you say he was the perennial governor of New York state. That he actually did a San finally to be a vice president under. I think it was under Jefferson after birth retired from the or was retired from the vice presidency, but he didn't. And that one reason that he was an acceptable vice presidential candidate was the had no particular presidential aspirations of his own. He was a power player in New York. His son DeWitt Clinton became the mayor of New York and the two of them really had a lock on New York politics for nearly a generation I and that the that I think that as such he was he was a canny inside player and that Burr was able to make use of him. And to sort of be real regard him and rely on him as a springboard for his own political aspirations, and he got essentially appointed to be a Senator from I through the Clinton administration. Let's turn.
